Lyrics

Margaret
She is a lady She wants what everyone can give She’s not so crazy to think you’re there for her She knows you’re there for her Margaret wants no sympathy Treat her like you wanna Margaret has nothing to say She’ll make it easy to laugh at life when it gets hard She’ll take you away when you want to be alone She’ll make you feel alone Margaret wants to sympathy Treat her like you wanna Margaret has nothing to say She’s on & on & on

Broccoli’s Blues
Broccoli died the other night I’ve heard it said he never cried If he had they would have found him and saved his life In an earthquake When it started to shake And the roof fell down Things started to break Windows and mirrors all over the place Broccoli died without a sound He was cut to ribbons before he hit the ground They say he was smiling when he was found

There’s Something in My Eye
The ceiling seems so far away The space between things gone I can’t think of what I’m writing I hear things I’m not sure I’m hearing And there’s something in my eye Something like you I hear one thing and I say another The bottles are all holding death The candles don’t seem to be falling The paper tree is holding my breath And there’s something in my eye Something like you I hate the pictures on my wall Pictures that hate me Everything has got a past And I am past it all

Good Idea
I need to ask you if you think it’s a good idea to leave the ones you wanted wanting You wouldn’t notice ‘Cuz all your focus Is on the body you inhabit I wanna know if you are pretty on the inside There’s gotta be another angle ‘Cuz on the outside you’re a pigsty of neglect and selfishness
