Pony



1. IDEA

 

You take all the fame

And I'll take all the sorrow.

You can have it all

And I'll be glad with nothing.

You can have anything

That means so much to me.

You can have everything

And you'll leave me here with nothing,

Nothing at all.

All my ideas are now your ideas

When all my thoughts are now your thoughts.

But my ideas are not your ideas

And what is right is not right anymore.

 

You can be content

In knowing I'm not happy.

You've got many friends

And I know they won't like me.

You can step on top of me

And I won't move at all.

You can step on anything

But you'll leave me here with nothing,

Nothing at all.

All my ideas are now your ideas

When all my thoughts are now your thoughts.

But my ideas are not your ideas

And what is right is not right anymore.

 

We continue on

And make ourselves believe that

Things are still the same

Although we know they really are not.

You can have anything

That means so much to me.

You can have everything

You're going to leave me here with nothing,

Nothing at all.

All my ideas are now your ideas

When all my thoughts are now your thoughts.

But my ideas are not your ideas

And what is right is not right anymore.


2. HIDE IN FICTION'S HANDS

 

You're not strong

So you need to recharge yourself

And take control of all you see.

See the lights change when you're crossing the street and

Notice I change

When you need to recharge yourself.

But now I wonder if you saw me.

Your face was down.

You wouldn't accept what you'd found.

Hide in fiction's hands.

 

You're not smart

So you need to educate yourself

And memorize all the charts and graphs.

Hear the voices

They are talking about you.

Listen to my voice,

It's turning into a laugh.

But now I wonder if you saw me.

Your face was down.

You wouldn't accept what you'd found.

Hide in fiction's hands.

 

We don't want anything that will make us whole.

We don't want anything that lasts.

You can write down all the ideas that make you.

You can write down

As you're starting to write it up.

But now I wonder if you saw me.

Your face was down.

You wouldn't accept what you'd found.

Hide in fiction's hands.


3. THE PLANET EATS

 

A meeting is on his sail.

A meeting is on his sail.

I meant to be

But you know what you want to be

Inside the mind.

My answer, seeds.

Wobble around with the thought that it will not stop.

Turn it around when you know you're doing to drop.

"I'll stop," you say.

But either way is still the same.

I've been away.

The planet eats.

Eats.

Navigate over the fifth of every failure.

Anticipate lost off return

Somewhere in Australia

Or Budapest.

Forget the rest, you're so obsessed.

It makes no sense.

My answer, freeze.


4. SUGGESTION FOR ROCK CULTURE IN THE 90s

 

The time has passed for us to imitate.

It's gone on too long so say so long

And don't emulate.

And just because you like to hear their sound

That doesn't mean you have to wear

The things they're wearing.

Copying is square.

 

When you grow up,

When you get old,

Yeah, you won't care

That great big companies

Make profits from the idol creeps

That lead you nowhere.

Though you identify with prerecorded hardware,

That doesn't mean you have to wear

The things they're wearing

Copying is air.

 

Rock, it is not my god

To suffer appreciation,

Unneeded like me.

It's the newest thing.

You don't have to fit in a scene.

Ah ha ha ha.

The situation cries forever more.

I hope by 1993 that you won't worship

Me.

 

The time has passed for us to imitate.

It's gone on too long so say so long

And don't emulate.

The situation cries forever more.

Perhaps by 1998

The world may grow up.

Great.

 

Anything you wanna do today

Just blows away.

Can't resolve the way that you behave.

We're all the same.

Anything you wanna do today

Just blows away.

Can't resolve the way that you behave.

We're all the same.

 

Stereotypes.

Turn on your radio and

Think like that.


5. LOCATED AND POINTED

 

Harry and Sue don't go out anymore.

Sue is located and

Harry is pointed.

They don't think cuz they don't have a lot.

And when they feel they know

There isn't a lot.

They can't see it.

There is no reason to be involved in this.

They never wanted to be apart.

Unless the reasons were the reasons were the reasons

Were the...

 

Stroking the veins

That she thought she had bought.

She doesn't fit

Except where she's fitting.

She doesn't think she does not have a lot.

And when she feels she knows

There isn't a lot.

She can't see it.

There is no reason to be involved in this.

She never wanted to be apart

Unless the reasons were the reasons were the reasons

Were the...

 

And I don't think it's a part anymore.

And I don't think it's a part anymore.


6. MISTAKES MADE IN TIME

 

Was there life in an ocean.

Was there life nobody could see.

Let's compare what

But not understand why.

On the earth's where

I should not be.

 

Time is taking everywhere I go.

Time is taking everywhere I'll stay.

Sometimes I take a look around

To realize I've lost my mind.

I wonder why you're laughing all the time.

 

Time is taking everywhere I go.

Time is taking everywhere I'll stay.

Sometimes I take a look around

To realize I've lost my mind.

I wonder why you're laughing all the time.

 

Was there life in an ocean.

Was there life nobody could see.

Let's compare what

But not understand why.

On the earth's where

I should not be.

 

Time is taking everywhere I go.

It's taking everywhere I'll stay.

Sometimes I take a look around

To realize I've lost my mind.

I wonder why mistakes

Are made in time.


7. AUTOMOBILE HISTORY

 

Dead away, dead or not.

I know a place we can get away.

You decayed away much too soon

I a living recounting doom.

I give whatever you want to you.

"I'm replaced," you say.

But you're not.

An imitation can mean a lot.

You'll come back one day.

You say you don't know when.

When does immediate end?

You take whatever you want with you.

 

You were an automobile.

Remember automobiles?

In automobile history

You were an automobile.

The car has a wheel

And you so cold

You're like frozen monuments with careers.

Am I damaged?

So long to your ears.

 

Does it take your fate,

Does it not

Like so many times.

Throw it out the door again.

Start all over again.

You lose whenever you start to win.

 

You were an automobile.

Remember automobiles?

In automobile history

You were an automobile.

The car has a wheel

And you're so cold

Like frozen monuments with careers.

Am I damaged?

So long to your ears.

To your ears.

To your ears.

 

Any car can be the focus

Of your dreams

If you just do the things you wanna do.

 

You were an automobile.

You were an automobile.

You were an automobile.

You were an automobile.

 

The car has a wheel.


8. IT'S YOUR HEAD...IGNITED

 

Not my head. Not my head.

It's your head.

Not my head. Not my head.

It's your head.

 

Think of the start.

Right where you float, you chart

And Brian,

You won't commit it to a spokesman.

That's what I am.

 

Ignited. Ignited.

It's your head.

Ignited. Ignited.

It's your head.

 

Marilyn goes to every place the most

Except for Zion

And Allen doesn't see his worth.

Gotta watch the time bend.

 

In our heads (x7).

 

Money looks the same even though

You connect a fuse and watch it explode.

Countries look the same as the seas.

Fear and umbrellas calling.

Familiarity.

 

Finding the end.

It happens now and then.

Whatever the cost.

You're too committed to your own plan.

A Santa Claus man.

 

Ignited. Ignited. It's your head.

Ignited. Ignited. It's your head.

 

Money looks the same even though

You connect a fuse and watch it explode.

Countries look the same as the seas.

Fear and umbrellas calling.


9. GARBAGE

 

Someday we'll be commodities

Stuck in a record shop.

You'll get a discount on Thursdays.

We'll lose our creativity.

The songs will sound the same

Every time around.

 

One day you'll play our records in your homes.

One day you'll have our pictures on your walls

And it won't get you anywhere

And it won't get us anywhere.

Garbage.

 

Music. It all just sounds the same.

Some people don't complain.

They get a check every Thursday.

One day it might not be this way.

But that's the way it is.

And it will always continue on.

 

One day you'll play our records in your homes.

One day you'll have our pictures on your walls

And it won't get you anywhere

And it won't get us anywhere.

Garbage.

 

Someday we'll be commodities

Stuck in a record shop.

You'll get a discount on Thursdays.

We'll lose our creativity.

The songs will sound the same

Every time around.

 

One day you'll play our records in your homes.

One day you'll have our pictures on your walls

And it won't get you anywhere

And it won't get us anywhere.

Garbage.

Garbage.


10. NO COLORS

 

You throw life away.

You give yourself away

To anyone that wants is.

What do I see.

No colors.

 

I'm frustrated by your stupid friends.

I can't relate to people

With no intellect.

I'd like to help you but there is no use.

I think you privately thrive on abuse.

 

You throw life away.

You give yourself away

To anyone that wants is.

What do I see.

No colors.

 

Colors.

No colors.

 

I'm frustrated by your stupid friends.

I can't relate to people

With no intellect.

I'd like to help you but there is no use.

I think you privately thrive on abuse.

 

Colors.

No colors.


11. CRYING YOUR LIFE AWAY

 

Cry. Cry. Cry. Cry.

 

What if we live to be one hundred.

What if we live to be two hundred.

What if we live to be three hundred.

What if we live to be four hundred.

 

Why are you crying your life away.

Why are you lying your life away.

 

Winter begins and you don't notice.

Spring begins and you don't notice.

Winter begins and you don't notice.

Fall.

 

It isn't easy to see.

Do you think that it's easy.

Why are you crying your life away.

Why are you lying your life away.

 

Nobody no, nobody no, nobody no.

There's no one.

Nobody no, nobody no.

There's no one.

 

It isn't easy to see.

Do you think that it's easy.

Why are you crying your life away.

Why are you lying your life away.

 

I have to know that this will last.

Indecision always passes,

Bye.

 

It isn't easy to see.

Do you think that it's easy.

Why are you crying your life away.

Why are you lying your life away.


12. OTHER PROJECTS FOR MY EYES, A.D.

 

Anyway, anywhere you don't go.

The overflows flow to a place I don't know.

Everything is so unfair.

I don't know if I can get there.

Don't you ever feel confused.

Only the stupid get used.

In a way I wanna know.

In another way I don't wanna know.

This is the way it's gonna stay.

Another projector and other projects

For my eyes.

 

Violence has it's place in our town.

You can watch it burn down and

Decay in the ground.

Everything is so unfair.

I don't know if I can get there.

Don't you ever feel confused.

Only the stupid get used.

In a way I wanna know.

In another way I don't wanna know.

This is the way it's gonna stay.

Another projector and other projects

For my eyes.

 

There's a place, it's not far away.

I know that we can't find it.

I'd rather have a place in mind,

Some place, somewhere it's a life line.

No life after death.

No life after death.

Never mind, pack your bags to go.

I know a place we can't go.

I know a place that isn't there, nowhere,

That's where I'll be going

After death.

After death.

 

Two. Four. Six. I forget

That it isn't done yet.

If it's easy, destroy me.

Was that a pony or a car?

So far.

Visit the cemeteries.

In a way I wanna know.

In another way I don't wanna know.

This is the way it's gonna stay.

Another projector and other projects

For my eyes.

 

Projects for my eyes.

Projects for my eyes.


13. GOODBYE HI HI

 

Clandestine skies.

Hypochondriacs arise.

Where are you in a year.

You'll gotta get out of here

With your distance

Cuz in an instant it goes by

And terminates.

Goodbye.

 

Embellishments don't know why

Hypochondriacs don't drive.

Where are you in a year.

You'll find your way out of here

With your distance

Cuz in an instant it goes by

And terminates.

Goodbye.

 

Turn back. Turn your back and

You won't have to see.

Hold back your silence and

Make no enemies.

 

At the end of your life

You'll no longer be alive and

You won't contemplate on

What you once missed.

In the distance

Cuz in an instant it goes by

And terminates.

Goodbye.

 

Turn back. Turn your back and

You won't have to see.

Hold back your silence and

Make no enemies.

At the end of your life

You'll no longer be alive.


Mnemonic


14. RUN OUT OF RUSH

 

You don't believe what you say.

You don't believe what you think.

Yeah, you'll never go away.

You've got no reason to see.

 

In a world where there is nothing wrong

You might see it different all along.

When it's over everything is gone.

 

You're not impressed with the view.

You're getting over that now.

And everyone that you knew,

They don't believe in you now.

 

You don't believe what you say.

You don't believe what you think.

Yeah, you'll never go away.

You've got no reason to see.

 

In a world protection won't be right.

You're disturbed when you get up at night

In a world where everything is right.

 

In a world where there is nothing wrong

You might see it different all along.

When it's over everything is gone.

 

Your rotten flesh never heals.

You're getting lighter each day.

You'll never run out of rush.

I still remember that way.

And why is this so wrong.

Why do we act as if there's nothing wrong.

And why is this so wrong.

 

You don't believe what you say.


15. COORDINATE YOUR LIES

 

You're somewhere else,

Somewhere so far away.

Tomorrow night seems just like yesterday.

No one can say what you can't say.

 

We're having lunch

Much like we used to do.

A dozen crunch doesn't have much to do with this.

The colors change.

It isn't strange.

 

A car collides, witch.

The corruption cries.

The big mistake, better than any made.

The world replies.

Coordinate your lies.

 

So many squares,

So many shapes to size.

To cut and paste,

Easy to memorize.

No one can say

What you can say.


16. REWIND

 

In the sunlight of your philosophy.

There we were.

We're on an ocean, see?

The return of what had never begun.

I recall recalling you can't see.

 

Although the road you're on's not easily defined.

Sometimes the change is changing

Only in your mind

In situations where there's nothing left to find...

You'll rewind.

 

Maybe someday the future goes away.

Pass the word that your awareness brings.

The return of what had never begun.

I recall recalling you can't see.

 

Although the road you're on's not easily defined.

Sometimes the change is changing

Only in your mind

In situations where there's nothing left to find...

You'll rewind.

 

The return of what had never begun.

I recall recalling you can't see.

 

Although the road you're on's not easily defined.

Sometimes the change is changing

Only in your mind

In situations where there's nothing left to find...

You'll rewind.

Although the road you're on's not easily defined.

Sometimes the change is changing

Only in your mind

In situations where there's nothing left to find...

You'll rewind.

You'll rewind.

You'll rewind.


17. HIGH POTENTIAL

 

I want you to be everything you want to be.

I want you to see everything that you can see.

 

If I could decide.

If I could decide.

What if I could decide.

Nothing can go wrong.

Nothing can go wrong

Unless it's gone,

Going on.

 

I want you to be everything you want to be.

I want you to see everything that you can see.

 

If I could decide.

If I could decide.

What if I could decide.

 

I want you to be everything you want to be.

I want you to see everything that you can see.

 

Nothing can go wrong.

Nothing can go wrong.

Nothing can go wrong.


18. SHIVERS FOR THE GREASE

 

Reach for the sky.

In just a moment you may die and

It's a difference that you see.

Cheers for your cries

Fall in a crest where you lie

And it's so difficult to see.

What isn't wrong.

What isn't right.

You're living your afterlife.

 

Hows into whys.

They're only words for the wise and

Only shivers for the grease.

What isn't wrong.

What isn't right.

You're living your afterlife.

 

What isn't wrong.

What isn't right.

You're living your afterlife.

 

Hows into whys.

They're only words for the wise and

Only shivers for the grease.

Please don't take long.

Please make it right,

Giving me afterlife.

Please don't take long.

Please make it nice.

You're giving me afterlife.


19. WHAT WRONG WITH COWBOY AND INDIAN ANYWAY? (instrumental)


20 . HOT DADDY PIG

 

I'm sorry that I was so mean.

I should have never done those things.

Looking back I see we'll never be that way again.

You should've known and you should've been.

 

We don't regret the times gone by.

Instead the past makes me wonder why.

Looking back I see we'll never be that way again.

We should've known and we should've been.

 

We don't live like we used to live.

We don't think like we used to think and

We won't be what we never were.

You had a light that shone so bright.

 

You had a light that shone so bright.

It's going out now into the night.

You're going back to see you'll never

Look that way again.

You should've known and you should've been.

We don't live like we used to live.

We don't think like we used to think and

We won't be what we never were.

You had a light that shone so bright.

 

We don't live like we used to live.

We don't think like we used to think and

We won't be what we never were.

You had a light that shone so bright.


21. MNEMONIC

 

Anywhere you want is here.

Cuz if they're not

Who would've thought you were home.

It's in your heart to take you right

Where you belong.

What do you wanna hear.

The hearing's over.

What did you lose that you own.

It took you back to where you knew

You don't belong.

 

Where have the answers all gone.

Away to where they fall

Far away into the sun.

 

What do you want to hear.

What do you want.

When you can't turn this off.

Where's the phone.

You had to check to see if there

Was someone home.

 

Where have the answers all gone.

Away to where they fall

Far away into the sun.

 

I wish I were alone.

I wish I were alone.

I wish I were alone

But then I'm glad I'm not.

There's nothing wrong.

I guess we'll aways be where we

Were all along.

 

Where have the answers all gone.

To where they fall

Far away into the sun.

Where have the answers all gone.

To where they fall

Far away into the sun.

 

It's funny if you don't believe it, do you.

It's funny if you don't believe it, do you.

It's funny if you don't believe it, do you.

It's funny if you don't believe it.


22. RETURN I SEND

 

They let me in but won't let go.

I hope it's only temporary.

Do you know about complexities and shacks.

You goodbye before you go.

Will you go and

Will you return again

Cuz what you return I send

To you.

 

How many friends fall through the door.

I hope you won't remember many.

Less is more.

You've got a home in every crack

When you forget the more you know

And you grow.

And maybe return again

Cuz what you return I send

To you.

 

When you turn you're turning back.

If you ever think you're gonna crack

Just laugh.

 

Return I send.

Return I send.

Return I send.

 

The words will blur and dribble away.

I hope you won't remember many.

Do you know how many rights can be so wrong.

I said how long before you go.

Say hello.

 

Will you return again

Cuz what you return I send

To you.

 

When you turn you're turning back.

If you ever think you're gonna crack

Just laugh.


23. SIZE

 

Terror and reasons

Distinct for all seasons

You won't find the reasons

Why bother to look at all.

Cuz when you open wide

You never know until you've tried

Until you open wide

You'll never know the right size.

 

There must be compassion

To temper the fashion

A reason for rationing.

Why figure it out at all.

Cuz when you open wide

You never know until you've tried

Until you open wide

You'll never know the right size.

 

Generate action

With no satisfaction

Delay your reaction

Why even try to exist at all.

Cuz when you open wide

You never know until you've tried

Until you open wide

You'll never know the right size.


24. MORE OR LESS

 

So many eyes have seen

So many more that mean

Less the rest that you find outside and

You'll ignore their size.

More or less you finally compress the stress

From what is meaningless.

 

I hope that I'm not wrong.

You made me go along when

I would've just declined

What wasn't there to find.

More or less you finally dispense the sense

From what is meaningless.

 

Whose confession finally led to depression.

 

But more and more and more and more

And more and more you really can't ignore.

You prefer to keep on playing a game.

More or less you finally dispense the sense

From what is meaningless.

 

So many eyes have seen

So many more that mean

Less the rest that you find outside and

You'll ignore their size.

More or less you finally compress the stress.


25. FIX MY WAGON

 

Kill me please.

I want to be your victim.

Don't bother me

Unless you can hurt me.

Hurt my knees.

Make sure the camera's on and

Control us please and

Kill me please.

 

Break my back.

I wanna have a heart attack.

My vote won't count in your election.

Steal my drugs.

I've loaded them with poison,

Sealed with love.

Break my back.

 

Fix my wagon.

Now it's broken.

It won't go

Unless you can help me.

My my oh

I'm so afraid that you'll let go again.

Then where will I go, oh.

 

Crush my head cuz

When it's splitting open

I won't be dead.

Is that what you were hoping.

Throw my brain

Into an empty garbage can again.

Then where will you go.


26. RESENTMENT

 

I resent the government.

I resent the population.

I resent the music scene.

I resent our generation.

I resent our god.

I resent the past.

I resent the frost.

I resent our masks.

I resent the poor.

I resent the weak.

I resent my puppet cuz

I've got no strings.

 

Come and close your eyes

To the world outside

And wander in the window.

Hold your hands and pray today and

Turn your face away.

Turn your face away.

 

I resent the theater.

I resent friendship.

I resent the human nature.

I resent the trip.

Come and close your eyes

To the world outside

And wander in the window.

Hold your hands and pray today and

Turn your face away.

Turn your face away.

 

You can turn your face away.

 

I resent.


27. THE MAN YOU FORGOT

 

I'm dying to tell you.

I'm dying to tell you.

I'm dying to tell you.

 

What idiots do.

What do the idiots do.

La la la.

You want to.

 

They don't have to sell you.

They don't have to sell you.

They don't have to sell you.

 

The man you forgot.

How many have you got now.

La la la.

You want to.

 

It doesn't matter when you...

 

I'm dying to tell you.

I'm dying to tell you.

I'm dying to tell you.

 

The man you forgot.

How many have you got now.

La la la.

You want to.

 

It doesn't matter when you

Sleep.


28. STOP ON SUNDAY

 

Life means nothing.

Love does not exist.

If it all means something

I don't know what is.

It used to be a game

And everything seemed funny.

Now it isn't humorous.

Watch it stop on Sunday.

 

Life means nothing.

Nothing.

Love does not exist.

If it all means something

I just don't know what that is.

It used to be a game and

Everything seemed funny.

Now it isn't humorous.

What it stop on Sunday.
