Eleven Women

Poppy Byron

Poppy Byron can you feel her pull
The 19th century made out of wool
Percy please come along for the ride
Poppy Byron what's it feel like inside

Mary Shelly was watching a telly
On SBS it was in Mandarin
A snake on its belly
An eel in its jelly
Poppy Byron was calling us in
Instead, my head says gin

Poppy Byron now she's on her yacht
Poppy Byron giving what she's got
The tiger with a golden high
Poppy Byron what's it feel like inside

 

Woman Number Nine

Well I don't know about you
I only know about me
Well don't put my heart in a freezer baby
I got to be free

And she wants to play the game
But she hasn't got the pieces yet
She doesn't feel any shame
At least any shame any man can name

Well I don't know about you
I only know about me
This whole universe for better or for worse
It is a mystery

You know the aliens they tampered with me
When they took my DNA
They gave me some energy
I said see ya later and they flew away

And she wants to read your mind
And she hasn't got her glasses back
And she's drivin' blind
Arriving in the dark and up with the light

Well I don't care about me
I only care about you
So put your hands all over my chakras baby
And lock me up the way that you do

And she wants to travel out
You unravel in her arms at night
And you fall from the sky
You couldn't even fly
You shouldn't even try

 

Josephine

The pavements are all dripping wet
Since the tempest hit this town
And the tarot cards were right
The stocks have all gone down
The cold and heaving ocean
Convulsing and so green
We'll have some wine and roses yes
But not tonight Josephine

The gates are open
The gates are closed
All the creatures all run through
And the violets are all red
And the roses are all blue
A solitary heron
On a sky upon a screen
A little wine and roses yes
But not tonight Josephine

The surfers in their wetsuits
The bakers with their dough
The dogs are in their cat suits
And the cats are lying low
I'm in the strange and remote place
Half a world between
A little wine and roses yes
But not tonight Josephine

I wish that you were by my side
Then you would plainly see
Lord I was the man for you
You were the girl for me
But when you left me sleeping
You walked out of my dream
A little wine and roses yes
But not tonight Josephine

A little wine and roses yes
But not tonight

 

Sheba Chiba

Sheba Chiba lived in LA
She sold dope to Dorian Gray
She chucked out of Persia then took it astray
Sometimes you gotta give it away

But it was nice
Nice of you to invite me here
Yes it was nice
Nice of you to invite me here

Well the holy land is far away
So in the moment we call it today
Here's the short version
Listen when I say
Sometimes you gotta give it away

But it was nice
Nice of you to invite me here
Yes it was nice
Nice of you to invite me here

Sheba Chiba drive a fast car
She drinks black rum at a celebrity bar
She swallows a comet and spits out a star
And sometimes you gotta watch from afar

But it was nice
Nice of you to invite me here
Yes it was nice
Nice of you to invite me here

Yes it was nice
Nice of you to invite me here
Yes it was nice
Nice of you to invite me here

Lillian In Cerulean Blue

It's not easy
When you find out
Nearly over
There's no way out

Lillian in cerulean blue
Lillian in cerulean blue
Lillian in cerulean blue
Lillian in cerulean blue

It's not over
Till it's over
And when it's over
Then you'll know

Lillian in cerulean blue
Lillian in cerulean blue
Lillian in cerulean blue
Lillian in cerulean blue

 

Queen Of Spades

Tiny diamonds in the sky
Little hearts upon the rocks
Hey let's go out and see all the clubs
Hey let's fly with all the flocks

The Queen of Spades is the bust card in this game
I'm gettin' out and if I were you
I'd do the same

First you lay down all the kings
Then you shuffle out the twos
Now you're gonna bet your whole damn life
And you love it when you lose

The Queen of Spades is the bust card in this game
I'm getting out and if I were you
I'd do the same

Alright, oh yeah, mmmm

The Queen of Spades is the bust card in this game
I'm getting out and if I were you
If I were you
If I were you
If I were you

 

Baby Poe

Baby no
Just let it go
Don't confuse the showmanship for the show

Sing my little baby
Sing my little baby Poe
Sing my little baby
Sing my little baby Poe

Oh baby yes
Just let me guess
Please don't blame the messenger for the mess

The stars are shining
And the moon is bright
Your hair's so black
And your teeth so white
What are you doing for the rest of the night
You wanna hang out and see the sights

Sing my little baby
Sing my little baby Poe
Sing my little baby
Sing my little baby Poe

Sing my little baby
Sing my little baby Poe
Sing my little baby
Sing my little baby Poe

(Baby Poe)
(Baby Poe)
(Poe)

 

Doris McAllister

Memory leaves
A taste in your mouth
All of the trees
Are hungry for you
The darkness has
A name for you

Doris McAllister
With her wand and her plants
You never should have embarrassed her
That was a dumb chance to take

Come to the sabbath
Maybe Satan is there
I never shoulda walked down this street
I've always had a bad feeling here
I never shoulda let you go
Didn't know I'd disappear

Doris McAllister
With black hat and black cat
You never should have threatened her
You'll pay a high price for that
For that

Doris McAllister
Lives in the wood
Doris McAllister
Up to no good
Please baby please
Don't leave me here in this ditch
Doris McAllister
Grants your most terrible wish

Doris McAllister
With her books and her spells
She's such a fucking character
Now she's got you by the bells
By the bells
By the bells
Oh yes

 

Where Gloria Meets Rachel

(One, two, three, four)

Still got a long way to go
Still got a whole lot to see
Still you're so far
Girl where you are
Still got a long way to go

(One, two, three, four)

Still got some love left to give
Still got some life left to live
Still you're so close
Closer than most
Still got a long way to go

(One, two, three, four)

Still got a prayer left to pray
Still got a high price to pay
Still got a chance
A chance to enhance
Still got a long way to go

 

Think Of You

Well my pockets are empty
My regrets are many
My hours are full
Full of memory
When the ship went down
Down to the bottom
And the sun broke through
And I think of you

The days are short
As we sink into winter
Painted stars on an obsidian sky
And the people are lost
We all lose in the end
But my payout is due
And I think of you

There's no rhythm
There's no rhyme
No melody
There's no beat
No revolution is coming along
To sweep you off your feet

So pick up the pieces
Sweep them away
Keep God close in your heart
Every day
Look for the light
Under the bushel
And your dream may come true
And I think of you
And your wish may come true
And I think of you
