I couldn't care less, though God knows I've tried. And I've done my best to accept his design. But when you're knocked off your feet when you're walking the line, you try to make ends meet, according to the wine. They say consider the source; mine's the fruit of the vine. Tomorrow will be fine, according to the wine. When the streets that you've loved leave you bitter and blind, and a friend's not enough to wake your dumb, numb mind, then a song that you've dreamed of seems to offer a sign that you've got the right stuff, according to the wine. The wish that disappears, the dark will that remains, the white-knuckled fears, all the blood that has drained: all this will pass, tomorrow we'll be fine, according to the wine. Yes, all this will pass, tomorrow you'll be mine, according to the wine.

Ardor and harbor, and passing the time, cool sheets and warm whisky trysts, menacing kisses, and bruised fists: nothing good can come of this. Deep dark pools, a warm, sweet abyss, say dive in and you won't miss your vengeful pardon and your resentful forgiveness: nothing good can come of this. Nothing good can come of this. When Jonathan's embrace becomes Iscariot's kiss, nothing good can come of this.

I'm a bad, bad hombre, and she's my nasty woman. Every time she calls my name, you know I'll come running. She's nasty, but so tasty when she wastes me. She's my nasty woman, and I'm her bad, bad hombre. We rock and roll all night and part of every day. She works me till it hurts me on my birthday. I'm a bad, bad hombre, and she's my nasty woman. I don't know what it is she's got, but, man, she's got something.

The unseen has revealed the indisputable The eternal has demanded that we fight for right Defend the absolute with courageous might Smite the evildoer and avenge the criminal Fire and brimstone will rain down on the infidel You’re with us or against us People of God or beasts of Hell We fight for the lowly and for the oppressed Stand up for their rights and fulfill their needs Smash their enemies, defend their interests Create a paradise from sea to shining sea Fire and brimstone will rain down on the exploiter You’re with us or against us Scourge or savior Choose your camp, there’s no standing on the sidelines The choice is clear, there’s no need for your questioning Take up arms, gird your loins, now has come the time Prepare the way for the day of reckoning Fire and brimstone will rain down on those who sleep You’re with us or against us Warriors or nodding sheep Fire and brimstone will rain down on the infidel You’re with us or against us People of God or beasts of Hell

A smile or a wink may brighten your day A nod may show you the way A little word you’ve overheard Some things depend on chance A bump or a spill along the way Some things one never can say Some small lesson you may have learned So much depends on a glance And when you don’t know where you stand Suddenly someone is touching your hand And when you don’t know where you stand Someone is touching your hand Put your loving hand in mine Some things depend on chance Stranger, put your hand in mine So much depends on a glance

My new life began that day in a small cafe on Greensprings and Hollywood. "Are you free," I asked. You shrugged, "I guess, I been wondering that myself". "I mean tonight," I smiled. You said, "How 'bout 'round nine? I was referring to nothing less." We walked those cold nights on the town, warm neon rained down, signs of a blessing divine. Silent nights in the park, calm and bright were the stars, eternity began with a spark. An address and a ring, the promise of things only God above could break apart. I'll be goddamned, Jesus doesn't love me. If he did, he wouldn't let you tear my world apart. I'd sworn to the skies above me, you were sent down here to love me. And you did for just a little while and left me with a broken heart. Well, our little house filled with love just wasn't enough to still your wandering mind. My attentions, it seemed, just smothered your dreams, maybe I had chained them to mine. So I asked the Lord to give me the words that would give us a little more time. Jesus answered your prayers, but he took no 'count of mine. All those nights spent on my knees were just a waste of time. I'd sworn to the skies above me, you were sent down here to love me, and you did for just a little while and left me with a broken heart. Now I walk these long nights all alone, harsh neon rains cold on the streets that led you away. In the park where we met I'll place my last bet and I'll offer my final prayer. God grant me the faith to carry the weight of the cross that you gave me to bear. I'll be goddamned, Jesus doesn't love me. If he did, he wouldn't let you tear my world apart. I'd sworn to the skies above me, you were sent down here to love me. And you did for just a little while and left me with a broken heart.

Clippy clip clop, droopy drip drop. Seek the snails on moss-covered trails.Tracking turtles and beached killer whales 'cross the sand. Found a liquor store, a two-dollar whore, bought a smoke from a tattooed dumb fuck. Drippy drip drop, cloopy clip clop, yippee-yo ki-yea Saddled up on a broken down horse, headed west toward Belgium of course. Set sail in an old broken pail with a crow in tow. Sunrise behind Alsatian eyes. Took drunk with a tattooed dumb fuck. Drippy drip drop, cloopy clip clop, yippee-yo ki-yea Took a breath from a gas-covered gag. Found my mind in a double-dutch bind Hail-drummed roof of a Tennessee jail. Read a book about miners and scabs. Dug a hole with an old Seminole. Found a man who spoke Latin and Creek. Sold my soul to a blind creole.Took drunk with a tattooed dumb fuck. Clippy clip clop, droopy drip drop, yippee-yo ki-yea.

A Paris, dans la rue du Cherche-Midi, la fin du monde arrive, un homme nous a dit. Le feu du ciel tombera quand le soleil sera caché para la luna un beau jour d'été. Paco, Paco, Paco, A-Paco-lypse Nursultan a dit a Boris : "je veux mon argent, sinon, tes roquettes, jamais elles ne décolleront". Boris a payé, mais Miguel de Nuestra Señora le sait, les hommes mortels ne changeront jamais leur destiné. Paco, Paco, Paco, A-Paco-lypse.
