Daktari

[ lyrics: natalie merchant & j.c. lombardo/music: j.c. lombardo ]
Like a weasel in the clover
You tilt toss pop turn over
Sit down!
Tremble and weave like a moth
By flame deceived
Sit down!
Spill with your words caught up
Dance in your room
Slide like youre buttered up
Roll back the tomb
Sit down!
Bolt scuff jilt chase circle riddle
Shake in haste
Sit down!
When the thunderclouds sound
Ants scatter to high ground

Glow

Music by 10,000 maniacs - lyrics by mary ramsey
In the coolness of the morning
Sparing moments here in magical tide
I would meet you without question
To share a starry gaze a look through the sky
From the start
There was this kind of glow
The start when its right
Youll know,
Fascinating loves a secret
An ancient riddle with no reason or rhyme
Unpredictable the muses they play
Never knowing whether teasing or shy.

Sally Ann

[ claus, powell, and hyman (the horse flies) ]
A woman of beauty
A woman of pain
In france or jakarta
Her shadows the same
Chorus:
You go home with sally ann
You go home with sally ann
You go home
A woman of kindness
With bracelets of jade
In china or japan
Her choices are made
Chorus
A woman of chances
No family or friends
In argentina
She knows only men
Chorus
A woman of color

Pit Viper

[ lyrics: natalie merchant/music: steve gustafson ]
In the cruel garrison of affection
If worth of lore is true
You know the face of a temptress
Pit viper
A witch or enchantress
Pit viper
With the malign venom of conceit
She tries
Civil men
Conceal fear
Misgivings
When night entreats them
A greater chill sustains
Stains her
Darkness
Shall not inhibit death blow
Know this skin does not restrict her
Tear and shed the coil
Fall of garland leaves

Somebodys Heaven

Music by 10,000 maniacs - lyrics by mary ramsey
There like a feather you fell someones heaven above me
Floating so fickle tempting me teasing my ways
Thrown from its clutches I struggle to free what escapes me
Absalom hanging like you Im caught in between
Heaven then earth then heaven between you
Release me untangle my hair
Absalom hanging like you Im caught in between
Heaven then earth heaven between you
Patient I wait as I hold a small feather
That floated from somebodys heaven.

Groove Dub

[ music: john lombardo/lyric: natalie merchant ]
Imitate that soured old song
There is no individuality
Only guises
Shades of
Nonconformity
There is no individuality
Selling vantage points
Low rate
There is no individuality
Questions ancient
No words claimed
Perform motions borrowed
Thoughts following
Ima tima ima tima intima
Dation
Respected
Head-he-go-round-men
Gesture display
Customer

Orange

[ music: john lombardo/lyric: natalie merchant ]
Lineage closed
Dissolved
In its birth
Tragedy
Prelude a balance
Is a synergy
Of reason
Malicious hope
As techno atrocities
Lapse their effects
Associate these ends
Their clarity
Demands your revenge
Please compensate
Not deny
Jungle revenge
Infanticide
Crosses
Very thin walls

Hidden In My Heart

Music by 10,000 maniacs - lyrics by mary ramsey & john lombardo
I see the leaves of autumn
Changing, falling , turning what was green
I see a door standing open,
Open to curiosity
We could be together
Tear it all apart
Would you ever notice
What was hidden in my heart
Heartstrong
Do we ever listen
Closely as willows start to weep
There as we stood upon the threshold
Who said forever was for keeps?
Would you ever notice what
Was hidden in my heart,
My deep heart is reeling forward
And steady on to keep,
Who made me miss the last ferry?
Who made this river so deep?

I Never Promised You A Rose Garden

I beg your pardon
I never promised you a rose garden
Along with the sunshine, theres gotta be a little rain sometimes
I could promise you things,
Like big diamond rings
But if thats what it takes to hold you
Id as soon as let you go
But theres one thing I want you to know
Oh, smile for a while and lets be jolly
Love shouldnt be so melancholy
Come along, enjoy the good times while we can
I beg your pardon
I never promised you a rose garden
Along with the sunshine, theres gotta be a little rain sometimes
I said, oh oh oh oh, I beg your pardon
I never promised you a rose garden

Once A City

Music by 10,000 maniacs - lyrics by mary ramsey & john lombardo
This was once a city
Harmony a common theme
But these complications
Now make life a bit uneasy
Hallowed buildings scrape the sky
Voices ride the airwaves
Once a city years gone by
Will they still be standing in thecenturies ahead
Going underground little children hiding,
Bullets never meant for them
Must there be such bloodshed in our hearts, our homes, ourheads?
Will I be walking, walking so free?
This was a city once
This was once a city
Harmony a common theme but these complications
Once a city, once a dream.
