Ugly But Honest: 1996-1999

Heather Rhodes

There will be no tragedies
Lullabies they're sounding like sirens now
Just like Heather Rhodes when she was 17 years old
Put another cigarette out in the square of my back
Memories might last for years
And birthday cakes they always taste like crap
This isn't an insult
To your intelligence

We both already know
How you feel about that
This isn't an invite
This isn't anything at all
Except for the fact that your here and I'm gone
Saw someone today who looked exactly like you
It's funny how the years go by
Saw someone today who looked exactly like you

--
Drunk with the Only Saints I Know

Drunk with the only saints i know
Everyone was wearing their halos
This is how we look when we die
Decorations on the tables
X-marks over our eyes
Cleanse the faces of
All the ones you love
Think about how your friends are
All the people who you'll ever do wrong
Just because they'll love you anyways
Doesnt mean they forget everything you say
Im not so sure about anything
I never stop and think about anything at all
Im not so sure about anyone
I never stop and think about anyone at all
This is how we all look when we die
Im pretty sure we're crazy, saying that we're all just assholes

--
Lazy Eyelids

Trading your eyelids for a nightcap
no one has to know
your light is all out
saving all your yawns in a jar
no one has to know
sprinkled all of your cologne
all these things fly around my head
you're feeling the things you say
trading all your friends
for a pile of gold
only fools search for gold
saving all your time to yourself
somewhere all alone
you arrived way too late
so what was it
there you go
so what was it
there you go
just like always
you always go away
all of these things fly around my head
feeling the things you said
you're trading your eyelids for a nightcap
what is this
and when was this
its a mystery
you tried
you always go away
try waiting in your car
your running way too fast
now that didn't hurt that bad
i didnt understand
you never had to ask
i would've told you right now
i guess that i waited way too long
i still want you
this is all such a big mistake
im so lost inside
i cant move on
i swear that i never asked for this

--
To Be There Now

Sometimes you get what you wish
i dont have to remember here
you're really close this time
i think its better to keep in your head
all the things you tried to have
maybe we already had the good times
maybe we left them behind
so forget the way it made you feel
dont forget it made you want to die
and all these scars
just wont ever seem to go away
do you ever think about the way
all these things they used to be
i think i lost it all out there
i think you know exactly what i mean
so i'll never go back
do you wish they remember still
it can happen again
maybe you should save in your head
all the things you tried to hide
did you ever think about her
did she ever make you cry
and all these scars
just wont ever seem to go away
did you ever think about
the way these things they all just used to be
i think you lost it all out there
i think you know exactly what i mean
so just to be there now
one more time with you
i could safely say
its finally the end of all this
so just to be there now
one more time with you
we could safely say
its finally the end of all this
so just to be there now
one more time with you

--
One Night Stand

If i could just see straight
i'd probably head straight for the door
please dont ask me what my thoughts are
cos i dont care about yours
must be a hole in my hat
where my thoughts are slipping out my head
and it doesnt really matter now
god damn it, it will tomorrow
suddenly a wonderful evening
turns into a sour sunrise
suddenly all the best feelings
turned to my unpleasant surprise
so i guess that i'm sorry
for everything i didnt mean to say
and i gues that im sorry
for everything that i had to say
so....small talk and pills...
since we're still doing quite well
this really isnt like me at all
suddenly a wonderful evening
turned into a sour sunrise
suddenly all the best feelings
turned to my unpleasant surprise
must be a hole in my hat
cos theres a hole in my head
and it opens up
this isnt me at all
must be...i guess it felt like its right
...if i cant stand up i'll have a one night stand
if i couldnt stand up i'd have a one night stand

Sitting in the Smoking Lounge of an Airport With a Broken Heart

We might as well talk about things on the news
maybe the weather cos its always true
we've got nothing left we can do
we might as well talk about anything
doesnt really matter, im sure you'll agree
we dont stand on common ground
we might as well talk, talk about you
and all the brilliant things that you do
is that what you really want me to do
i try so hard to talk really soft
....always talk way too loud
....and i dont understand
when i saw that man walking on by
...just to see you...
we sat and we watched you sing all your songs
secretly hoping that we'd sing along
but theres nothing left we can learn
and in the event you left me sitting
in the smoking lounge of an airport....
i'll write you a letter and send it away
you left me sitting in the smoking lounge
of an airport...
why do i turn into such a dumb wreck
every time that you...
i'll break your...
whiskey and coffee...
just fine talking about the way that
i'll break your....

Blankets Stare

So here is a note, its been a long month
and now i have to, have to go to sleep now
its 2 a.m. and i feel like
i might have done something wrong
finally made an end to all the backwards notes
now we all are standing in line
so change your clothes again
how can i convince you
to change your mind again
another one of those times
when i blanket stare
so this is a note, its been a long month
and now i have to, have to go to sleep now
its 2 a.m. and i feel like
i might have done something wrong
finally made an end to all the backwards notes
i'll try and catch a cold, close the window
so change your clothes again
how can i convince you
to change your mind again
another one of those times
when i blanket stare
tell me now
tell it all
tell me when your ready
dont tell me when i'm wrong
wait til we all ...
tell apart the lies and all the blanket stares
and tell it to the wives and we'll all...and thats the way it goes

Fluorescent Lights

I guess i'll make it clear now
we all hate ourselves
how many more now? Drive myself insane before i've driven everyone
away
if i could walk for a moment of this (bar?) til i hit the floor
if i could walk from one end of this town
to the other
goes away
the only reason people try to talk to each other
is cos they gotta say something
that is smarter than the other one said
everyone's fucking crazy
people never listen to what you have to say
cos their so damn scared
that you'll be smarter than them some day
everyone's fucking crazy
but i hate these flourescent lights
if i could walk for a moment every spore and cell
i'd hit the floor
if i could walk from one end of this town
to the other
i wouldn't go anywhere at all
i could talk to you and you could talk to me
i would say anything at all
i could talk to you and you could look at me
i would say anything at all
the only reason people try to talk to each other
is cos they gotta say something
that is smarter than the other one said
everyone's fucking crazy
people never listen to what you have to say
cos their so damn scared
that you'll be smarter than them some day
everyone's fucking crazy
but i just hate these flourescent lights

A Bathtile Green

Theres been times not to tell
and theres been lies told too many times
and if the strap from your shirt
fell over your shoulder
pull it back up
and i'll look the other way
now just in case the lights go dim
i've heard everything that you've said
and now i'm wrong
now i apologize
we told a couple of jokes
made us both laugh
now they don't even seem funny anymore
it's starting to feel a lot like christmas
i watched your hair make a mess of itself
a bathtile green, your fingernails
a comment that was made but not withdrawn
so now go right ahead
make yourself a note
and leave it out to see
we told a couple of jokes
made us both laugh
now they don't even seem funny anymore
we told a couple of jokes

Some Days Are Better Than Others

Tonight starts to fade
and i'm starting to think things arent so great
life would feel alright if i could just remember what i did last night
why drag the hours from the clock on the wall
didnt count at all
it always breaks my heart
seen everyone
its not right at all
its just the worst they've done
we took a plane and waited all night
because you felt like finding someone
she might wait by the phone


just in case he called and he didnt get through
its the only thing that makes any sense right now
some days are better than others
some people are too
some feel a lot better than others
just look at you
catch the plane as quick as you can
i wish i could see the look on your face when you...
much much more should...
take a photograph
send it to yourself
so when you...

Alphabet on the Manhole / Heather Rhodes (Twin Peaks remix)

There will be no tragedies
Lullabies they're sounding like sirens now
Just like Heather Rhodes when she was 17 years old
Put another cigarette out in the square of my back
Memories might last for years
And birthday cakes they always taste like crap
This isn't an insult
To your intelligence

We both already know
How you feel about that
This isn't an invite
This isn't anything at all
Except for the fact that you're here and I'm gone
Saw someone today who looked exactly like you
It's funny how the years go by
Saw someone today who looked exactly like you

You Should Be At Home Here

--
Brooke Daniels' Tiny Broken Fingers

If you were here right now
And not dead like you are
I would sit by you, but you're not here
You're not here at all
Tiny broken fingers in the doorway
How was I to know?
I didn't think those screams were for real
In a house where the tree fell
We spent all day in the branches
They came the next day
They took that tree away and we all cried
Did you hear she saw demons in the bedroom?
Her lungs were broken
But then they worked fine
When the blue light comes around
Blue light don't come around right now
You might not like what you see ashamed

The Color That Your Eyes Changed With the Color of Your Hair

seal this envelope with a heart that's been
beaten black
beaten blue
beaten all over again
don't leave out a single thing
send it off with wings
an anecdote to ease the pain that you feel
every time that you smile at the mirror

i won't need anymore memories
for the next 50 years i could still write you love songs
i wont need anymore photographs
to remember the color of the clothes you wore that night

hopefully this won't sound as bad
as i'm sure that it is
all results will be lifeless and lead
to an excuse
to never try again, to never try at all
staring up at the ground
because oh how you we tried
and oh how you lied
but how could that be true

i won't need anymore memories
for the next 50 years i could still write you love songs
i won't need anymore photographs
to remember the color that your eyes changed with the color of your
hair
my heart is gone
my heart is gray

--
Halfway Spoken Heart That Feels Comfort in Everything Until It
Disappears and Then It's Gone

Hoping that the warmth of snow
Will bring some comfort with its gray
False light will glow from the lamp
I will shade to hide the glare from your pale face
Until it disappears and then its gone
Sit so quiet, breathe so softly

Waiting for the walls to creak
So you can finally let out a sigh
A breath that will illuminate the cell
And all of its shapes inside
The cold air
In the cold air

--
A Loose Hair Falls Into a Glass of Water Without Ice

if this is all part of some plan
if this is all part of some game
if this is some self affirming notion
if this is all exactly what i think it is
our phobias are the only conversation
i dont want to say anything right now
smoke gets in your eyes
and loose hairs fall into a glass of water without ice
it's giving you a stomachache
which comes as no surprise when you say that your head is throbbing
or how tired that you are
now loneliness has turned into a desperate thing
i dont want to think about that now

Fear Not My Friend for Tonight We Ride

Blessed Arms That Hold You Tight, Freezing Cold and Alone

a doorway thats in between
wasn't me and it wasn't you
the airplane rewrote our histories
of freeways left to go now
hysteric screams coming out of the window now
blessed arms that hold us tight
freezing cold and alone
skeleton left the closet for a little while
i slept all through the day
all through the night
all through this year
all through this life
now cold arms pull the covers tight
and bad boring dreams all come true
and its all long goodbyes
death will come slowly now
wake up, pass out, fall down
comb your hair
take a long long look in the mirror
you smiled when you lied about all of your feelings
i hope to god none of this comes true
because one eye is shut
and the other one is completely crushed
death will come slowly for you

All Apologies and Smiles, Yours Truly, Ugly Valentine

so they're all gone now
that took a long time
you're the only one
who'd be my valentine
i didn't want that
to drive you crazy
i should've done something
i guess im lazy
feeling down low now
someone tell me what i should do
because i've never been perfect
but i never meant to drag down you so
if i'm dragging you down now
i could wait in the lost and found
just promise me you'll be perfect
and i promise that i'll come around sometimes
to say hello all smiles
maybe it's time to let go
probably doesn't even weigh that much now
so i'll drop it
i'll turn around fast
i'll shake your hand and take
six steps back
we'll have a seat and light another cigarette
we'll have a drink for nothing to regret
we'll clap our hands when, when we hear that sound
we won't be sad now
we won't be feeling down
we could live or die
and have a great time
i'll be your valentine
what an ugly valentine
we could live or die
and have a great time
you'll be my valentine
what a perfect valentine
we could live and die be my valentine

The Ghost of a Dead Hummingbird Flying Around the Room

sold a penny to the railroad
nothing gained and nothing lost
kept it underneath the pillow
and sent it out to you for your thoughts
will you hold it close to your heart
or will you lose it the same day
will you throw it in the well
to gently wish me away
do you really want me here
do you really want me to stay
do you really want me gone
do you really want to wish me away
the television glow will keep you
safe and warm when you're alone
and you won't be frightened by
ghosts of birds that fly around the room
and terrorize you flying
im wide awake now
you're sound asleep now
and these valiums are finally kicking in
i can feel it under my skin
i can feel your breath on my breath
i can feel your heart on my arm
i can see the glow in the room
i can see the hummingbird fly away
now i can feel your weight in my arms
i can feel this weight on my heart
do you really want me to stay
do you really want me to go away
im wide awake now
you're sound asleep now

The Part About the Vine That's Growing Through the Window and
Reaching Towards my Bed

read all the words upon the note
you handed me so insincerely
what did you expect for me to say when you had to ask how it made me
feel?
your handwriting was perfect
you spelled everything correctly
except for one small tiny thing that i wouldn't mention anyways
so now by candlelight in my new bedroom
it's in the basement under the stairs
i'm writing you a letter 200 miles away
i hope that it will reach you
some parts of it sound foolish
like the part about the vine
that's growing through the window
and reaching towards my bed
i hope one night while i'm asleep
that i find it wrapped all around me
to come and take me away
i hope one night while i'm asleep that i find it wrapped all around me
to come and take me away
to take me away
to take me away
to take me away
to take me away
i hope one night while i'm asleep that i find it wrapped all around me
to come and take me away

--
You Should Be at Home Here

if i could feel anything
it wouldn't feel at all like this
if i could wake anywhere
i wouldn't wake up at home
if i could hear anything
it would be your voice to say
you should be you should be at home here now
i dont feel at home at all
this is where i will sit
to pay for all the wrong i've done
this is where i will sleep
to pay for all the wrong i've done
this is where i will wake
to pay for all the wrong i've done
this is where i will think
about all the wrong i've done
hope your funeral goes as planned
and everyone falls all around you
bringing flowers to make a pillow
for your weary head
i wont be there when you scream
at all the voices all around you
saying the things you never ever want to hear about
i wont be there when you die
a thousand deaths for just one lie
it's amazing how you stay awake at all
i'll be waiting way down here
and i'll be waiting all alone
waiting for you waiting for you
all the rats and spiders
will probably laeve me here alone
just like everyone they've got something better
that they can do
everything that was to be
forgotten us and will be gone
everyone that was to be
now somehow all became a memory

Songs About Leaving

You Should Be Hated Here

they're all surrounding
we're both hoping
failing slowly
attempting one thing to stand up
with dignity
to walk away

do the time to prove it all

the new lines
wrapped my eyes around
the scars upon my head
were only meant
to spell apologies
there's a (tent full of?)
was impossible to find
but until you find me
???
standing stupid looking blind

(??? I could do anything
right ??
to say that you were wrong

this night is guaranteed to all turn black
with memories that haunt the past)

i'm only here to fall apart
you've been angry from the start
but I know these trainwrecks happen all the time

everything no one knows
you should be hated here by now
this was the prettiest lie that I told tonight
it's been the prettiest lie that I told all year
the unmade bed inside the room
where I don't feel comfortable at all
where blankets stare at me for hours
and I stare right back so self righteously

(it could be now
and I don't feel proud
i'm so sorry now
i'm sorry now)

and it all comes down to composure that's been lost
when it all comes down to composure that's been lost

Silently Leaving The Room

silently leaving the room
gathering your thoughts from the floor
hopefully no one will hear you
silently closing the door
down the long stairs to the hall
out to the streets where you'll find
rumored accounts and hearsay
was it me who acted that way
is it you who should stay
I don't recall ever acting that way
was it you who should've stayed
the truth was deceiving
when the hosts of the evening


found the ghost that was bleeding
drops of blood from the ceiling
someone was laughing, we all prayed for a favor
that the ghost would entertain us with some songs and some notes
but by the ? blood covered all the wood floors
opened all of the windows and all of the doors
broke all of the bottles on streets down below
some blood was frozen
blessed by wounded love
when the ice skates came on the girls finally sang songs
to the tunes of the laughter
while silently leaving the room

--
So You Wanna Be A Superhero

There's banging on the wall
It's 5am -- I've got no sleep at all
Just thoughts of how I might struggle through tomorrow
Too much time in one day
Too much time to occupy
Boring thoughts
And boring moods
And boring bedtimes
Won't tell a single soul that my soul's gone
It's hard to write this song
It's all a joke
It's all been wrote down by someone who's probably dead

I might be leaving soon
I might be leaving soon

There's laughter from below
It's 1am -- how could you have known?
The thoughts of silence that had me
From going away back to sleep at night
Wish I could call someone I love

To stop thinking of myself
Long look in the mirror
Just... looks back so blankly
You were right: I can't do this
I'm going crazy, it's fine by me
now you can see
How much I've become empty

I might be leaving soon
I might be leaving soon
I might be leaving soon

My dreams are full of what's not real
I'll fly away and save the world
I'll make you proud someday
I just won't be around to see your face

My life is full of what's not here
I'll go away and save myself
I'll make you proud someday
I just won't be around to see your face

September Come Take This Heart Away

this room has so many windows
too many windows
I've sat and watched the trees framed to fade outside
I hope the seasons treat you well
I hope the seasons treat you kind
as kind as I never was
as comforting as I never could be
I saw 2 fake long stemmed roses
on the windshield of a car
September come please take this heart away


all of these windows
bring in the cold air
I hope you have a coat
to keep you warm
warmer than those last times we spoke
warmer than the last words we said
I'm sure the wind blows gently on you now
I hope that nothing will ever remind you of me
glue that faded photo on a worn out journal page
it reads September come, please take this heart away

Ignorant Piece of Shit

Looking right around you
And how will I know
when you'll decide to jump
Jump out of a window
falling faster
I can imagine
The ways you'd roll your eyes
Before you hit the ground

Telling everyone you know
Maybe I'll be bad for you
Maybe you're too good for me
Everyone is getting screwed
Well if the shoe fits then put it on
Wear it like a crown
I cant believe you called
Just to say that you were coming down
I like the way you roll your eyes
Right before you fall down
I like the way you rolled your eyes
Right before you fall down

On bended knee
Will you marry me
And on November 16
Everything was buried down

The Piano Song

You'll find relief somewhere
between the tree and its shade.

When you go away, Heavens a distance not a place.

They'll Only Miss You When You Leave

Not another sunrise. Another divorce, stale taste in your mouth.
You walked away from waking up inside of that house,
Depending on the call you've been waiting for;
It felt just a song you loved so long ago.

You can hear it now. They'll only miss you if you leave.
So you try and stay away. You just might be the love in their eyes,
When it's attracted all the times you've sat there trying not to say
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye.

Telephones and postcards with misshaped hearts beside the names.
I've read this letter for the hundredth time today.
I rearranged, analyzed the words,
Tried to find something between the lines that wasn't there.

At least now I can see through these worn-out lines on torn-up pages,
Don't know how I'll fall asleep tonight, tonight, toni-ight, tonight.

Outside the window, awful weather.
The storm will slowly close in on me
When it's time to leave. (x4)

Worn-out lines on torn-up pages,
Don't know how I'll fall asleep tonight, tonight, toni-ight, tonight.

Outside the window, awful weather.
The storm will slowly close in on me
When it's time to leave. (x4)

A New Holiday (November 16th)

you're whole again now
its an obvious reflection
can see it in my neck
taking slow dancing lessons
nervous laughter filled the voids
when I declared you your own holiday
your voices sound different though I've heard it before
remember the winters that we slept in the car
you said your crooked legs don't walk so well
I said my eyes were tired and declared
you your own holiday
you'll be here

Farewell To All Those Rotten Teeth

Farewell
Farewell
Farewell
Farewell

Farewell


To all these rotten teeth
Farewell
Leave the skin and bones
To dry
To dry
Leave the skin and bones to dry

Sophisticated Fuck Princess Please Leave Me Alone

I still recall what made me like you
so yes they have said things about you
and yes I see where it's true
thought you could get all you wanted
by just thinking of yourself
it's not your pretty face that matters
and I think you need some help
so please just leave me the hell alone
cause now I know this isn't at all right
how much more times
will I have to tell you
you try to cry but it's just for show you know I know you know
saying sad things that don't make sense
can just make you look like a liar
don't convince me that your right
about some fear I have of heartache
so I'll make you just one promise that I'll never regret this
take a long look inside cause right now
I'm leaving you

Low Budget Slow Motion Soundtrack Songs for the Leaving Scene

how long will you be gone
how soon till you'll come home
where is your sweetheart
who shelters her from the cold now
absence only made our hearts grow colder
I will be waiting
I'll just keep waiting for you
will you remember the feelings and colors
bad dreams comforted by warm arms that held you so close
will you regret everything that you said
or will you hold it close to your heart
cause I will be waiting
I'll just keep waiting hold on
so close, hold on
absence only made our hearts grow colder
I will be waiting, I'll just keep waiting for you

(March 19th 1983) It Was Probably Green

green takes the leaves
snow takes the sea
it reminded me how awful things can be
trying to recall your tiny voice
till the fever breaks it's all that I can hear
counting down the numbers of the days
was it the same amount of roses on your grave


finally I brought myself to sing these words
after the snow you can finally see
if you could be the trees I would be your leaves
after she died, we decided to believe
that her favorite color was probably green
on the day she died, in our hearts we did believe
that her favorite color was probably green

Phantom Fireworks

I will fall for your lies
When you tell them twice
Like the five small words that you always say
That you honestly needed to change
Did you sleep alright through the lightning storm?
Should I close the blinds?
Should I lock the door?
Because you honestly needed to change
When you burned your hands on the sparklers
That you had stolen from phantom firework stands
Oh how you honestly needed to change
Will someone carry me across 10,000 miles under the silence
The silence was getting too loud

Die

I wake up, it's all gone.
(your characteristic seemed alright)
I wish I had stayed at home.
At home here, I need you to tell me all the wrong I've done.
(you're so disappointed every time)
I wish you'd believe me, I'm alright in my life.
(the backyard is empty when you're gone)
I see you way out there
(Suppose that I said that I had lied just when you said that you were)
You're standing on a lonely road.
You're standing on a lonely road.

Die, Die (right now)
I want to die, die (right now)
I wish you'd die, die (right now)
I want to die, die (right now)

She wakes up and then leaves,
(Your characteristic staircase smile)
He's coming; and not naive.
Remember who your friends are,
(You're so disappointed when you try)
But don't forget the one you love.
Promise I'll make it in that hip-hop video.
(the bad words are endless when you call)
I see you way out there,
(suppose I had said that I had lied, just when you said that you were)
You're standing on a lonely road.
You're standing on a lonely road.

Die, Die (right now)
I want to die, die (right now)
I wish you'd die, die (right now)
I want to die, die (right now)

I never asked to be here.(die)
I never asked to be here.(die)
I never asked to be here.(die)
I never asked to be here.(die)

Blue Champagne Glass

You had a dream she was a dancer
Some kind of New York dancer that was a light sleeper
We -- disaster
Anyone can ask and get all the same answers
A blue champagne glass that I thought was plastic
Now all of the warnings and all of the signs
I tried hard to hide this and tried to be kind
I tried not to smile and I tried not to laugh
When I broke your favorite blue champagne glass
Might've been some dancing but not New York dancing
This was not romantic, this was never planned
Anyone can ask and get all the same answers
A blue champagne glass that I thought was plastic
Now I forever will be a heartbreaker, breaking your things
Now I never will be how you remembered it being
Now all of my love to you
