Le Grand Cañon


LUCINDA

Remember that place we used to like
Just outside the city where it ain't so bright
Yeah, meet me tonight
I've been out walking, I've been talking
I've been hearing your name
Silence screaming on the wind
Something I could not comprehend
Telling me I should be calling

Give me a sign
I don't want your surrender
Give me a sign
Meet me tonight just one more time Lucinda
Meet me tonight
No more lies, no pretending
It's all right it's all right, it's all right

We wrapped our troubles in dreams among other things
Tell me do you ever still think of me
When you're meeting him out down on 7th street
Its all right, it's all right, it's all right
It's all right, it's all right, it's all right

Give me a sign
I don't want your surrender
Give me a sign
Meet me tonight just one more time Lucinda
Meet me tonight
No more lies, no pretending
It's all right it's all right, it's all right

Give me a sign
I don't want your surrender
Give me a sign
Meet me tonight

Give me a sign
I don't want your surrender
Give me a sign
Meet me tonight just one more time Lucinda
Meet me tonight
No more lies, no pretending
It's all right it's all right, it's all right




STANDING IN THE SHADOWS

Let's disappear tonight
Get off the grid and run for our lives
Look to the stars and shed these stripes
No baby we don't have to compromise

Baby come with me
Everything's gonna be all right
Baby come with me
Let's run away tonight

Cause when the house of cards comes tumbling down
And the whole thing goes up in smoke
And everyone's bugging out
And the future is in doubt
We'll be standing in the shadows

Satellites and spooks, they're watching over us
There ain't no one out there we can trust
I'm telling you man there must be some conspiracy
The Pentagon, the Kremlin, it's all the same don't you see?

Baby come with me
Everything's gonna be all right
Baby come with me
Let's run away tonight

Cause when the house of cards comes tumbling down
And the whole thing goes up in smoke
And everyone's bugging out
And the future is in doubt
We'll be standing in the shadows

Baby come with me
Everything's gonna be all right
Baby come with me

Cause when the house of cards comes tumbling down
And the whole thing goes up in smoke
And everyone's bugging out
And the future is in doubt
We'll be standing in the shadows




HEAVEN

If you go out walking
In the night alone
Somebody is watching
Following you home

Baby I've been treading carefully
Waiting for you all night long

Tell me why, why
Heaven is a lonely place to be
It's not the way it's supposed to be

All I ever wanted
Was somebody to hold
A little warm blooded
Comfort in the cold

Baby I will love you endlessly
I will never let you go

Tell me why, why
Heaven is a lonely place to be
It's not the way it's supposed to be

Tell me why, why
Heaven is a lonely place to be
It's not the way it's supposed to be
Why, tell me why
Heaven is a lonely place to be
It's not the way it's supposed to be




MADE IN LA

Called up Ernesto
My Russian friend
He said the good stuff
Had just come in

He was down on Pico
Said he'd bring his friends
Thought I heard the ghetto birds
Here come the voices in my head

Put your hands up
Put your hands up

I didn't make it, I got made
I couldn't shake it, they were in my brain
Paranoia and the DEA
Made in LA

Ernesto showed up sans my shit
And not a single friend
He said we're rolling to the valley
There's been a change of plans

He pulled off for some quick Chinese
He shook the dragon's hand
Steely staring eyes of fire
I swear he was a wired man

Put your hands up
Put your hands up

I didn't make it, I got made
I couldn't shake it, they were in my brain
Paranoia and the DEA
Made in LA

Deep in the valley
Deep in over my head
I looked back for Ernesto
He'd left me for dead

Lucifer in blue jeans
She was a tall drink of gin
Holding what I came for
I paid her for the deal and then she said

Put your hands up
Put your hands up

I didn't make it, I got made
I couldn't shake it, they were in my brain
Paranoia and the DEA
Made in LA




HANGER ON

Devil, what the hell
Are you doing to me?

Don't you think I'm good enough?
Don't you think I'm strong enough?

Wrapped up in your spell
How you make a fool of me

Don't you think I'm good enough?
Don't you think I'm strong enough?

Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me hanging on
You don't need me
You don't need me hanging on, hanging on
I don't wanna do it
I don't wanna be a hanger on

I've been fairly well
Without your insanity

Don't you think I'm good enough?
Don't you think I'm strong enough?

Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me hanging on
You don't need me
You don't need me hanging on, hanging on
I don't wanna do it
I don't wanna be a hanger on

You let your hair come down
You throw your heart around
Nothing's gonna save you from yourself
You need a sirens sound
To drown the silence out
Devil, devil I rebel
I don't wanna do it
I don't wanna keep hanging on

Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me hanging on
You don't need me
You don't need me hanging on, hanging on

Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me hanging on
You don't need me
You don't need me hanging on, hanging on
I don't wanna do it
I don't wanna be a hanger on
I don't wanna do it
I don't wanna be a hanger on




I DON'T WANNA WAIT

I don't wanna wait for you no more
We're thirty minutes late walking out the door
Twenty different dress on the floor
I Don't wanna wait for you no more

I don't wanna wait
No, I don't wanna wait
When every single day's like the day before
I don't wanna wait for you no more

Went to a party dressed in black
Everybody's talking behind my back
I hate to bother you and your old friend Jack
But I'll be outside when you're done with that

I don't wanna wait
No, I don't wanna wait
When every single day's like the day before
I don't wanna wait for you no more

When we got home, I had no doubt
I went to the bathroom to freshen up
I threw too many back, I laid her down
He couldn't get it up, so I just passed out

I don't wanna wait for you no more
Ain't no one gonna win this war
When every single day's like the day before
I don't wanna wait for you no more

I don't wanna wait
No, I don't wanna wait
When every single day's like the day before
I don't wanna wait for you no more




SHANGRI-LA LA LAND

Even the greats have bad nights
Some have bad years
Sometimes it's hard to tell
Which is which around here

I had a woman
We made a bed in the hills
I loved her hard
She paid every bill
Thought I did everything right
Someone is crying tonight

In Shangri-La La land
Rows of jasmine and mariachi bands
Monday mornings with nothing to do
You can have your margarita and drink it too

In Shangri-La La Land
Never noticed the shifting sand
Till the big one came
And washed it away
Even the greats have bad days
In Shangri-La La Land

They say if you love someone
Then set them free
I tell you those words
They don't mean a damn thing to me

She took a pull off a joint
And she told me to go
I left as I came
With my guitar and broke
Now she's flying high, she's doing all right
I wonder if there's someone else there tonight

In Shangri-La La land
Rows of jasmine and mariachi bands
Monday mornings with nothing to do
You can have your margarita and drink it too

In Shangri-La La Land
I never noticed the shifting sand
Till the big one came
And washed it away
Even the greats have bad days
In Shangri-La La Land

Now she's flying high, she's doing all right
I wonder if there's someone else there tonight

In Shangri-La La land
Rows of jasmine and mariachi bands
Monday mornings with nothing to do
You can have your margarita and drink it too

In Shangri-La La Land
I never noticed the shifting sand
Till the big one came
And washed it away
Even the greats have bad days
In Shangri-La La Land




KANSAS CITY

I seen a lotta strange things in my time
But nothing compares to what I'm staring down now
Seems like the nuts have taken over the asylum
Fat cats are sitting back, saying smoke 'em if ya got em

Well I ain't smart enough to know what's true or not
But it seems like every word I see's been sold or bought
They're burning bridges and widening the great divide
Wish I could go back to those simpler times

Kansas City
It's been a while since I reached out I know
I ain't forgotten 'bout you baby
I know you're still as lovely as you were
All those years ago

Oh Kansas City
The curtains come down
I'm taking my final bow
Kansas City
Only you can save me now

When I left home we were barely 17
Two heartland kids chasing the American dream
Remember meeting down on 12th Street and Vine
We snuck down by the river, drank that Kansas City wine

Young loving acting stupid like the world would never end
So much time has changed, I don't know where to begin
They're burning bridges and widening the great divide
Wish I could go back to those simpler times

Kansas City
It's been a while since I reached out I know
I ain't forgotten 'bout you baby
I know you're still as lovely as you were
All those years ago

Oh Kansas City
The curtains come down
I'm taking my final bow
Kansas City
Only you can save me now

Kansas City
It's been a while since I reached out I know
I ain't forgotten 'bout you baby
I know you're still as lovely as you were
All those years ago

Oh Kansas City
The curtains come down
I'm taking my final bow
Kansas City
Girl you look so pretty
You look so pretty

Oh Kansas City
The curtains come down
I'm taking my final bow
Kansas city
Only you
Kansas city
Only you can save me now




THEORY OF EVERYTHING

Jim had a bad day
His dog ran far away
He was late on his alimony
Not that she needed it anyway

He walked outside and he cried
Why God, tell me why
Does it have to be like this?

I was high as the stars
Beating impossible odds
Up in the clouds playing God
With all you spacemen

I was there when it all began
Had a beer while I drew up the plans
So you may not be here at all
You may never be here again

Sherri's in a bad way
Had a customer that didn't pay
A headache that she couldn't shake
She was dying for a cigarette

She walked outside and she cried
Why God, tell me why
Does it have to be like this?

I was high as the stars
Beating impossible odds
Up in the clouds playing God
With all you spacemen

I was there when it all began
Had a beer while I drew up the plans
So you may not be here at all
You may never be here again
Sherri filled in for a friend
She thought her shift was 'bout to end
Then a guy comes walking in
He hit her with a stupid line
It was her first smile in a while
She took the seat next to him
He said, "hey, the name's Jim"

I was high as the stars
Beating impossible odds
Up in the clouds playing God
With all you spacemen

I was there when it all began
Had a beer while I drew up the plans
So you may not be here at all
You may never be here again
No you may not be here at all
You may never be here again
