All the things that i do for you have all started to feel like backyard voodoo collection of items related to you sticking needles in dolls, rolling logs, and drinking morning dew All the boys in the bar Have all done the same, you'll never believe what i saw i saw them pouring through your trash even the ashes of your poor grandpa and i saw evil on the face and it was in the shape of a scar Chicken bones are strewn From the ceiling of your room and brickdust is guarding the cupboard where you keep your broom it must have been an occasion you even wore your oxblood shoes and i heard the legend, about how you dyed em yourself, or didn't you? No cause for alarm crocodile skull in your yard, enough to make one pause i will do anything you say, ill be your slave ill even be your Santa Claus i will behave, as long as you give me back my baseball cards Then everything around the town got dark and all the dogs everywhere started to bark and that old negro woman started to yell I know she put me under that voodoo spell

The Seams 02:54
Starts off a feeling that's strong late at night when you're all alone you're by your computer, by the telephone, but you're just listening to the dial tone what was soft, now is hard and you can't find yourself consciously taking part in a world that has torn you apart ripped you up at the seams but that's not you that's just me In the night i take it to the streets, ain't no warmth between my sheets i'm ashamed by the people that i meet cause they're so incomplete all my life i could never tell, if i was doing anything well, now i know that the storm's about to swell, cause it's devouring me but i know that ill be okay as long as i could see the sea All my life so much strife

Well i know it's going to be hard i know its goin to be tough I hope you got much more than all that big rich expensive kinda stuff cause if you don't you know you don't take that to heaven oh no And if you did you'd probably look at it from a far oh lord I do not even got a dime it's been like that a couple weeks time Well i know thats it goin to be hard i'm told it will be tough oh no no no and that's why, what's gonna be much worse when the big bad men call your bluff cause when they do they'll string you up cut you open show your guts to you and make you taste what your heart pumps inside of you I could not help but sigh i seen it coming around for a couple weeks time Now i'm walking real slow down the road and any path i take stories down there all been foretold well the one i chose promised fame and fortune and so much gold but i got hollow hallucinations concerning a life i would never be able to hold thats it i've lost my mind it's been like that more than a couple week time no no

I wake up, break of dawn, you've back up your dress and your books well they're gone and you babe, ain't been coming round, and if they see you around, know my babe, i'm coming for you I wake up stumble round, ask the old men that live in the old town, where you live, and why you can't be found, and if they see her around the old town, let her know i'm coming for you I wake up, face is red from the night before when I was breaking bread, with you, and now you can't be found, and if you see her around the carnival grounds know that i'm coming for you Quand je pense à une femme, je pense à elle entre mes mains but you, can't turn around, and if you see her around, know babe, i'ma coming for you Well sometimes i'm swimming up stream, and fixin to rest on the shore i long for you love if you know what i mean, would you come if i knocked on your door? well then you say i don't think i'll be coming around anymore, and i say thats okay that's fine, i'll find myself another whore

If you are alone Well I'll be the one to take you home If you are scared Don't be, I won't touch one of your hairs And are you a fool? Well pack up your bags we're leaving this school What have you learned From the ashes that fly from the books that you've burned? How am I going to make it? Sticks and stones may want to break it It's been you, all my life I think we can make it, if we go on and shake it And we make love tonight If you are alone Well ill be the one to take you home [x2] They said atone, for all of the nasty stuff that you did Oh well I know, they've been harping on that since I was just a kid How am I going to make it? Sticks and stones may want to break it Its been you, all my life I think we can make it, if we go on and shake it And we make love tonight If you are alone Well ill be the one to take you home [x2] They said "get home", somebody out there must be missin' the kid Through cities I roam, I've been learning from all the stuff that I did Like playing the part of the jealous scar and a lonely heart Or just playing the fool, when all of my friends said "keep it cool" How am I going to make it? Sticks and stones may want to break it Its been you, all my life I think we can make it, if we go on and shake it And we make love tonight If you are alone Well ill be the one to take you home [x2]

about

Po Lazarus Montreal, Québec

Lazarus had to live twice. This was a raw deal. In accordance with the grandiose acts of divine men, we’re now playing for our lives. Devout music boys, just trying to keep things civil while the guitar sweats.
