You stole my life.
And you took me higher.
Gave me hope and broke my bones.
I knew it would end
Before the ride was through.
But we were young and it felt so right.
Out to taste the air at night,
Bed of flowers me and you.

When we fell we tripped so long.
When we tripped it felt so wrong.
W hen we fell we tripped so long.
When we tripped it felt so wrong.

When the sky was full
A nd the moon was blue,
When I come, come home at night
I can see without light.
It's here inside of me.
She's on top, on top of me.
I am wrong, can't believe what I see,
But she feels right beside me.

CHORUS

Why find a man to know tomorrow when a man knows tomorrow shows?

You set me up
W hen I took that dirt.
What I needed you had first.
You knew time would fall on us.
T he hardest day came and went.
T he gun fell down; the bullet spent.
I walked away and down that road.
Now i'm stealin' back home...



Love

I did it once. That wasn't enough.
Cause girl it feels so good when you play rough.
I did it twice. I had to get me some more.
I had to get me all I could before you showed me the door.

It was love, love, love, love, love, love, never dignified.
You just picked me up, threw me down on the bed, told me all your lies.
It was love, love, love, love, love, love. It was suicide.
And when you turned your six guns on me, girl I almost died.

On the third time, I tried to draw the line.
But when the blood's running down your fangs you sure look fine.
So on the fourth time, they said I had to live with you.
But then you picked me up, kicked me out, left me on the sidewalk, black and blue.

And it was love, love, love, love, love, love, never dignified.
When you loosed your dogs upon me, I felt justified.
Yeah that was love, love, love, love, love, love, just like suicide.
And when you threw your arms around me, well I almost died.

You've got your red house.
I've got my long johns.
You've got your sleepover.
I've got my long, long, long, long, long, long...

It was love, love, love, love, love, love, levels everyone.
Like a big black monster diving in blocking out the sun.
Yeah it was love, love, love, love, love, love, just like suicide.
Cause when you wrote your history on me, well I could have cried.

Just about every time, I came back again.
I said, "I don't give a good goddamn if you don't want to be my friend."
And by the last time, you'd spent all that I saved.
Then you dug a hole, buried me, and built a doghouse on my grave.

But that was love, love, love, love, love, love, never dignified.
You took all my clothes off, threw me down, told me all your lies.
Yeah it was love, love, love, love, love, love, just like suicide.
You just dug a hole, dropped me down, buried me, said it was justified.

Juliette fingers the empty noose
And clicks her teeth with her tongue.
$200 job and the damn thing's loose.
Done it yourself is what you should've done.

13 hands all played close to the vest.
I still dream about you in the rain.
This weather, man, lord it really ain't the best.
Been in a bottle since the early May.

Now I got a problem and he won't let me be.
Oh, can't you solve this little problem for me?
The rope and the will, the will to set us free
Oh, don't you have what I need?

Schiecke has seen a lot of deals go down.
In his coat he hides a dead man's hand.
He pulls out 200 without a sound.
Says, "You're a long way from the motherland."

The biggest fingernails I've ever seen.
He said, "My advice is get out of town."
I'm in bed with someone else's dream,
Can't get it up, but I can still go down.

I got a problem and he won't let me be.
Oh, can't you solve this little problem for me?
The sun in my eyes, the will to set us free,
Oh, don't you have what I need?

Juliette slides against her cotton sheets
As the sun mounts its morning ride.
"Come up here," is what she said to me,
"And pull the blinds, so it's dark inside."



The Choke

See the things she does with her eyes.
Well, I was so hypnotized.
See the things she does with her hair.
Well, I fell in love with her there.
See her silhouette run so dry.
The angels inside me multiply.
See her ghost fly out of the well.
On her rocks fiery I fell.

The violence, boy, will burn your soul,
Sometimes burns it clean.
But the hiss of blood on glowing coals
Sometimes burns obscene.
The chicken bone is greasy soft,
Splinters when it breaks.
But The Choke is not an accident.
It's more like a mistake.

See the things she does with her paints.
See her body teeming with saints.
Made me see things I couldn't see.
Made me believe things I didn't want to believe.
See her silhouette run so dry.
The angels inside me multiply.
See her fly up out of the abyss.
Hell, it ain't her ghost I miss.

See the things she does with her eyes.
Well, I was so hypnotized.
See the things she does with her hair.
Well, I fell in love with her there.
See her silhouette run so dry.
The angels inside me multiply.
See her ghost fly out of the well.
On her rocks fiery I fell.

The violence, boy, will burn your soul,
Sometimes burns it clean.
But the hiss of blood on glowing coals
Sometimes burns obscene.
The chicken bone is greasy soft,
Splinters when it breaks.
But The Choke is not an accident.
No, I'd say it's a mistake.
