CAVING IN (marshall with kane 2002)

Now falling through the cracks
The space that time neglects
Seeping through the underground
An ever thinning path
Entrance to a timeless void
The caverns formed below
A creeping journey in the dark
Where ageless creatures grow

In the cave I'm caving in
There's rarely any sound
In the cave I'm caving in
Darkness all around
In the cave I'm caving in
I'm creeping towards the floor
In the cave I'm caving in
Suspended here for ever more

Sunlight hasn't touched this place in
Tens of thousands of years
Darkness hides the shapes that form
As endless trop lets fall like tears
Tucked away below the surface
Timeless space abounds
Change occurs at various rates
A never ending now

In the cave I'm caving in
There's rarely any sound
In the cave I'm caving in
Darkness all around
In the cave I'm caving in
I'm creeping towards the floor
In the cave I'm caving in
Suspended here for ever more

In the cave I'm caving in
A place that time forgot
In the cave I'm caving in
A never ending now

 
THE BARDO (marshall with kane 2002)

We're here in the bardo
We're here in the bardo
We're here in the bardo
We're here in the bardo

Ah. Ah. Ah Ah.

We're here in the bardo
We're here in the bardo
We're here in the bardo
We're here in the bardo

Ah. Ah. Ah Ah.

We're here in the bardo
We're here in the bardo
We're here in the bardo
We're here in the bardo
Deep in the bardo
Deep in the bardo
Deep in the bardo
Deep in the bardo

Ah. Ah. Ah Ah.

We're here in the bardo
We're here in the bardo
We're here in the bardo
We're here in the bardo

Ah. Ah. Ah Ah.

RIVULETS (kane '80's)

There was a time
The slathered phallus
Buried deep
In furrowed palace
Playing rough
But not with malice
Love enough
To fill a challis

Deep within the sacred grotto
Singing songs of ancient blotto
Limp love pools from heated climax
The plane awaits upon the tarmac

DUPLICITOUS VORTEX:
DOWN BELOW (kane 1985 ?)

Down Below Where Secrets Stow
My Mind Turns Like A Disc
Gears Are Grinding, Tape Unwinding
Preparing For The Risk

Time Has Come, The Season's Done
The Leaves That Fell Are Dead
The Ropes That Bind Me, Are Behind Me
The Noose Is Off My Head

I Stood And Stared And Gawked Aghast
As I Was Ripped From My Dead Past
Its True They Say The Past Is Dead
But It Will Never Leave Your Head

No Matter Where You'll Ever Go
The Things You've Done Are Yours To Know

VACUUM HEAD (kane 1987?)

The Music Drips Down
Through A Crack In The Street
Bathing All Those Who Travel
In Subterranean Byways
Forming Stagnant Pools
Of Myriad Fools
Neither Realistic, Nor Animalistic

Valves Held Open
To The Flow
I'm A Vacuum Head
Suction And Cold

Our Lives Are Like Patchwork Quilts
Beach Houses Built On Wooden Stilts
Turntables Made With Rubber bands
Clocks Telling Time Without Any Hands
Newspapers Without Any Words
Just Pictures Of Guns And Birds
Space Shuttles And Cherry Coke
The Whole Thing's Just A Really Bad Joke

Can You Tell That The Letters
Can't Fall Off Of The Page
But Often Appear To Do Just That
Interruption Of Mind My Brain Is Cheese
A Toasted Bagel With A Schmear
Nugget Mania Makes Me Insania

SMOKING CAR (kane '80's)

The Naked Lunch Upon My Plate
Makes Me Think Of What I've Ate
When Times Were Tough
And Things Got Blue
I Had Oatmeal And Pebble Stew
The Water From My Kitchen Tap
Was Brown And Cloudy Filled With Sap

Furtive Glances
Pierce The Death Dark Doorways
Seeking Out Figures In Gloomy Night
Pinpoint Eyes
As Red As Rats Blood

The Clothes I Wore, Upon My Back
Were Nothing More Than Old Hemp Sacks
But None Of This Is True, You See
Its All Made Up Of Fantasy
When I Was Young, I Will Not Boast
I Had The Things I Needed Most

Riding Trains All Through The Night
Past The City's Sparkling Lights
Empty Seats Where No one Sits
Cigarettes And Coughing Fits
Traveling From Near To Far
Sitting In The Smoking Car

Street Lights Flicker
And Sputter In The Night
As All The Homes Are Locked Up Tight
And The Timid Stay In Bed
For A Fear Of What May Be Lurking
In The Death Dark Doorways
Or In Their Hearts…


DOLLAR BILL
(marshall with kane 1999)

You Pay Your Money, And You Takes Your Choice
Standing In Line With All The Other Boys
You Drink Your Drink, And You Wait Your Turn
You Even Think You Got A Chance With Her
She Shakes Her Ass, And She Strokes Your Collar
Don't You Know She's Only In It For The Dollar
Really Got You Hooked When She Calls You Honey
By Closing Time She'll Be Having All Your Money

She Says It's Just For A Little While
I Can Make Us Rich, We'll Go Out In Style
The Way She Struts Her Stuff For You
She Thinks You'll Never Have A Clue
She's Making Cash The Old Fashioned Way
Since Before Christ, And It's Here To Stay
You Thought She Was At The Restaurant

But There's Money Down At The Titty Bar

She Told Her Boyfriend She's Working As A Waitress
Only Thing She Could Get Was The Night Shift
Boyfriend Going Out To Buy The Bitch Some Diet Pringles
Reached Into Her Purse And Found Funky Sweaty Singles
He Don't Catch On, He's A Stupid Musician
She Keeps Him Happy With A New Sex Position
Going To The Club Feeling Powerful And Sexy
Where She's Going To Be When She's Pushing Forty

Then You Catch Her Down At The Titty Bar

She Thinks She's Got Them All Under Her Spell
But Her Bible Thumping Parents Say She's Going To Hell
Her Boob Job Costs Only Six Months Wages
Now They Got Her Dancing In Cages
The Dumb Musician Out With His Band mates
Sees Her Hanging From The Ceiling
Wearing Nothing But A Band-Aid
Gets Upset, And Gets Thrown Out By The Bouncer
Next Thing You Know, She's A Bedroom Surfer

Called Her Boyfriend, Said She's Working All Week
So He Through All Her Belongings Out Into The Street
Now She's Making A Living Selling Her Body
Going House To House, Ain’t Nothing But A Party
She Thinks Her Life's A Big Vacation
Boyfriend Gets Arrested For <"Public Intoxication">
Parents Disowned Her, They Just Couldn't Take It
Now You're Paying Money To See Her Naked

Then You Caught Her Down At The Titty Bar

PAINT CHIPPED PONIES (kane 1987?)

Paint Chipped Ponies Going Round
Life Is A Big Merry-Go-Round
But Have You Ever Caught The Ring
And Have You Ever Tried To Sing
With Your Arms Stretched Out
On The Round-A-Bout
You Hold The Reins
And Scream And Shout
You Try To Catch These Things
But They're Just Out Of Touch
The Little Golden Rings
That Mean So Much

As Children Fantasize
Welcome The Masquerade
You Should Realize
The Seriousness Of This Charade

Dreams Are What Keep Us Going
Even When Our Lives Are Dead
Dreams Are What Keep Us Growing
Paint Chipped Ponies In Your Head

BYE BYE MY PRETTY
(kane 1989?)

Never Coming Home
Never Coming Back
Heads Too Filled With Drugs And Alcohol
Can't Find Any Slack
You Said Let Them Eat Cake
So I Pushed It In Your Pretty Face
I’ll Be Singing At Your Wake
It Won't Be Amazing Grace

You Stupid Little Wretched Witch
Can't Get Nothing From Me Now
Except A Song Or Two In Which
I Sing About An Evil Cow
On This You Can Depend
You'll Feel It In The End
There's A Maggot Inside Of You
I Think It's Your New Boyfriend

Fly Away My Vulture Far Away
Go Ahead And Piss All Over Everything
Bye Bye My Pretty Go Away
Far Away


MOONDOGGIE GOES BERSERK
(kane 1986?)

I Fell In Love With A Girl Named Gidget
I Had To Find Out Why She Was So Frigid
So I Dragged Her Off To The Nearest Bluff
And Pounded Away At Her Virgin Muff

Moondoggie Goes Berserk
He Was Tired Of Being
The Same Old Jerk

I Looked At Her
And Then I Started To Smile
‘Cause I Knew She Was
Wanting It All The While

Mooondoggie Goes Berserk
He Was Tired Of Being
The Same Old Jerk

But It Was Much Too Big
And It Just Didn't Fit
And She Screamed;
"You Big Palooka, My Noo-Noo’s Gonna Split!"

Moondoggie Goes Berserk

He Had A Job To Do
That He Just Couldn't Shirk
Moondoggie Goes Berserk

Hold On Tight
Hold on,
Hold on,
Hold on,
Hold on tight

Feel my pulse race hard in my chest
Watch the veins bulge out of my head
Your skin so pale in the soft moonlight
Touch me now, and
Hold on tight

Ride ‘em hard, and ride ‘em wet
One life may be all we get
Speed may kill, or so they say
But nothing matters when I feel this way



Feel the wind blow in your hair
Engine hummin’ down under there
Lord gave us something man cannot give
Nor take away, and
We ride to live

Hold on,
Hold on,
Hold on,
Hold on tight now

Ride ‘em hard, and ride ‘em wet
One life may be all we get
Speed may kill, or so they say
But nothing matters when I feel this way

I’m still flying out of control
Watch me now as
I fuck the world

CONFABULATION:
DARK SKIES
( 1997 KANE / MARSHALL )

What is the spider to the fly
What is the needle to the eye
What is the ocean to the rain
What is the feral to the tame

CHORUS: 
Were you the slightest bit surprised
When you had finally realized
That all this darkness in the sky
Came from within.

Why do the winds disturb the sands
Why is the time so close at hand
Why is there calm before the storm
Why is there substance without form

CHORUS: 
Were you the slightest bit surprised
When you had finally realized
That all this darkness in the sky
Came from within.

BREAK

Who is the me nobody knows
Who is the you that never shows
Who is the us that used to be
Who is the one to set us free

CHORUS: 
Were you the slightest bit surprised
When you had finally realized
That all this darkness in the sky
Came from within.

EIGHT TRACK BABY
( 1997 KANE / MARSHALL )

CHORUS: 
Eight Track Baby with a one track mind
Cute little shorty with a big behind
Met her at a party, and her name was Sheba
Nicely stacked, and she smokes a lot of cheeba

BREAK

Took her back to my place, kickin’ it live
Dancin’ to her favorite BeeGees jive
I couldn’t dig the music, but I really liked the view
Rollin’ up a doobie gave me something to do

BREAK

CHORUS: 
Eight Track Baby with a one track mind
Cute little shorty with a big behind
Dance, and party, and smoke all night
Some kind of lover, That’s All Right !

DOUBLE BREAK

Dance baby dance, she’s a disco inferno
Sucking down blunts like there’s no tomorrow
Tried to get her over to my bedroom door
But she just lit another, and danced some more

CHORUS: 
Eight Track Baby with a one track mind
Cute little shorty with a big behind
Dance, and party, and smoke all night
Some kind of lover, That’s All Right !

Dance, and party, and smoke all night
Some kind of lover, That’s All Right !

CONFABULATION
( 1997 KANE / MARSHALL )

I’m losing my grip
I’ve loosened my hold
I’m starting to slip
I’m losing control

CHORUS: 
I feel reality slipping away from me
I feel reality slipping away

I’m starting to trip
It’s freaking me out
I’m going to flip
There can be no more doubt

CHORUS: 
I think reality has slipped away from me
I think reality has slipped away

BREAK

I’m stark raving crazy
Completely deranged
I’m so twisted and hazy
It’s been all arranged

CHORUS: 
I’m glad reality has lost it’s taste for me
I’m glad reality has lost it’s taste for me !

IN LOVE NOT FRIENDS
(Kane/Marshall 1997)

It begins slowly
Day after day
You can't exactly stop
And then you're friends

CHORUS:
Fall in love
Then you're not friends
Give up everything
When you fall in love
It takes so long to change
When you're bound
Slip away from family and friends
And then from God

Then you're sorry
You can't explain
There's too many reasons
There's too much pain

CHORUS:
Fall in love
Then you're not friends
Give up everything
When you fall in love
It takes so long to change
When you're bound
Slip away from family and friends
And then from God

I could not find my way back
Didn't know which way to go
I forgot all my beliefs
All that I began
I'll have to start all over again
And again and again and again

CHORUS:
Fall in love
Then you're not friends
Give up everything
When you fall in love
It takes so long to change
When you're bound
Slip away from family and friends
And then from God

Can't find my way back
Which way'd you go

And then you'll find
It's just as sure
It's just as quick
It's just as pure

WAITRESS AT HEART
( 1997 KANE / MARSHALL )

   She’s a waitress at heart
   And she likes to serve me
   In a little black dress
   I’ll tip generously
   Every day at the diner
   It’s always service with a smile

CHORUS: 
   I think I love that little waitress
   Cause she’s got feminine style
   I think I love that little waitress
   She’s got feminine style

SPINNING
( 1997 KANE / MARSHALL
 

   Lights are speeding by
   Spots are in my eye
   Can’t believe the sky
   Time is on the sly
   Life is getting real
   Hide behind the wheel
   Road has come alive
   Still somehow I drive

CHORUS: 
   I’m spinning wheels, I’m spinning wheels
   Spinning wheels, I’m spinning wheels
   Spinning wheels, I’m spinning wheels
   Spinning wheels, I’m spinning wheels
   Spinning wheels, I’m spinning wheels
   Spinning wheels, I’m spinning wheels
   Spinning wheels, I’m spinning wheels
   I’m spinning wheels

   Wheels that kiss the ground
   I can feel the sound
   Road and I are one
   Below the blazing sun
   Life is driving fast
   Running from the past
   Racing through the days
   Until they’ve gone away

CHORUS:  (Same as above)

   Drive the fastest lane
   Steer away from pain
   Take the road you choose
   And throw away what you can’t use
   Pass the world so fast
   Nothing ever has to last
   Live along the way
   Till my dying day

CHORUS:  (Same as above)

ENERGY ROLLERCOASTER
( 1997 ANDERSON / KANE / MARSHALL )

Maybe, baby I think I can see  the top
So hold on. Hold on now as we start to drop

I want to enjoy this great big ride
Ride down the other side
And see what’s down inside

CHORUS: 
Energy, Energy Rollercoaster
Energy, Energy Rollercoaster
Energy, Energy Rollercoaster

Look at all the others they are
 Tricked into their exteriors
 Everyone is too uptight to decide
 What they really want inside of the

CHORUS: 
Energy, Energy Rollercoaster
Energy, Energy Rollercoaster
Energy, Energy Rollercoaster

BREAK

We have to pay the price
Sharing some of the things we hold near to us
To make this ride a much
Better time for us...  On the 

CHORUS:

Energy, Energy Rollercoaster
Energy, Energy Rollercoaster
Energy, Energy Rollercoaster

Maybe I think we’ve reached the top
When will my energy investment stop
I want to let go, and ride without care
And know that I am there
Eternally you know where...

TIES
( 1997 KANE / MARSHALL
 

   As I slip from dark to deep
   Shave my head when I’m asleep
   Never think to change disguise
   Would make the truth from lies
   Seems if nothing’s ever spoken
   Who’s to know if something’s broken
   Even when we have some doubt
   We always try to work it out
   But do you even want it fixed
   Or has it just been eighty sixed
   And what a sad, and selfish game
   To give the joy, and hide the pain

CHORUS: 
   The ties 
   That bind
   Together
   Are slowly wearing through
   Tangled
   Neglected
   Forgotten
   And you know I never knew

   What is happy, do you know
   Think you felt it at the show
   Is it something you create
   Or caused by something that you ate
   Did you ever feel that way
   I don’t know, it’s hard to say
   But you’re sure it’s gone away
   I don’t think that I should stay

CHORUS: (Same as above Twice)

TALK TO THE HAND
( 1997 KANE / MARSHALL )

   Listen here and listen now
   This is a message to show you how
   The meaning should be clear
   Your face, your voice: Disappear
   Seek and you shall find
   It should be clear inside your mind
   I think you understand
   The time to act is now

CHORUS: 
   Talk to the hand
   Talk to the hand
   Talk to the hand
   Just talk to the hand
   Talk  to the hand
   Talk to the hand 
   Just talk to the hand
   You gotta talk to the hand

   Your talking head it rambles on
   You’re still going, but I’m half gone
   What’s in the silence that you fear
   That keeps you ringing in my ear
   Your voice boring through my head
   Not half done, but I’m half dead
   In the beginning you’re entrance was grand
   Now there’s the exit...

CHORUS:

Now talk to the hand
Just talk to the hand
Talk to the hand
Talk to the hand
Talk to the hand
Talk to the hand
You gotta talk to the hand
Talk to the hand
TALK TO THE HAND !

BREAK

Now talk to the hand
Talk to the hand
Just talk to the hand
You gotta talk to the hand
Talk to the hand
Talk to the hand
You gotta talk to the hand
Talk to the hand

Talk to the hand
Talk to the hand
Talk to the hand
Talk to the hand
Talk to the hand
Talk to the hand
Talk to the hand
You  gotta talk to the hand
Talk to the hand
Just talk to the hand
Talk to the hand
Talk to the hand
JUST TALK TO THE HAND !

WHERE ARE THE PEOPLE

   When you found them all gone ?

   What did you first do
   When you found them all gone ?

ISLAND OF THE DEAD
( 1997 KANE / MARSHALL
 

   We’re jammin’, jammin’
   Jammin’ with the dead
