give me something fast

you say stay and never leave
you say meant for ever
I could believe you but I don't
you say we're almost all alone together
all alone
I was wrong
---------------

you say
you say you will
I know you won't

I was wrong
I was wrong to ever doubt
I can get along without
I can love my fellow man
but I'm damned if I'll love yours

in a bar that's always closing
in a world where people shout
I don't want to talk this over
I don't want to talk it out
I was quite impressed until I hit the floor
isn't that what friends are for?
pain looks great on other people
that's what they're for

I was wrong
I was wrong to ever doubt
I can get along without
I can love my fellow man
but I'm damned if I'll love yours

Flood II
----------

and her hallway
moves
like the ocean
moves
and her hallway
moves
like the sea

she says no no no no harm will come your way
she says bring it on down, bring on the wave
she says nobody done no harm
grace of God and raise your arms
she says: face it and it's a place to stay

this, this is the way it was
this, this is the way it is
when the water come rushing, rushing in

she says
she says anytime
raise your arms
flood...

and her hallway
like...
like...

like a million voices call my name
like a million voices calling
not now, not never again
sitting here now in this bar for hours
strange men rent strange flowers
seconds to the drop but it feels like hours
and I think I'm going to, going to...

Something fast
-------------------

all the things
we never needed
I don't need them now
all the things we ever did
were always confidential
and hidden from me anyhow

you can stand all night
at a red light anywhere in town
hailing maries left and right
but none of them slow down
I've seen the best of men go past
I don't want to be the last
give me something fast

God knows everybody needs
a hand in their decision
some of us are not so sure
I've seen his own held out
for a ride on television
I think he's still in Baltimore

you can stand all night
at a red light anywhere in town
hailing maries left and right
but none of them slow down
I've seen the best of men go past
I don't want to be the last
give me something fast

Train
-------
take a last decision and the cars to move it
past information
tunnel vision and the scars to prove it
everybody got a reservation

far beyond the black horizon
beyond the things you know
everybody got a destination
everybody got a place to go

take a walk downtown to where the victims go
take your shadow to the end to the very last window

everybody got friends got shot upside and over down the
line
everybody got assignations
I got mine

take a one way ticket to the main attraction
cut a hole between the ground and sky
take a railway track to a chain reaction
cross my heart and take a ride

far beyond the black horizon
beyond the things you know
everybody got a destination
everybody got a place to go
