Gomez X-Rays

All the times we float through

The air we breathe in

Keep on places we’ve got to share

Get to see them

You didn’t turn it on

But you can’t turn it off

I know you didn’t turn it on

But you can’t turn it off

All the information

Competing for the memory

Perfect situation

Consuming all the energy

We didn’t turn it on

But we can’t turn it off

I know we didn’t turn it on

Now we can’t turn it off

Can we rediscover what we had?

Oh, I never felt it dissolving

And it’s nothing like what we used to have

Oh, we never saw it fading away, being human

It’s time to find out what we really want

Been running away from the light

Into the shadows for so long now

We’re becoming invisible

It’s time to figure out what went wrong

And seal the distance too far across

We should just start crossing it

The distance doesn’t exist

It’s time to let go of what we lost

A heavy elixir felt it

Slip through my fingers

As I raised my hands to my face

It’s time we made our final stop

And look for the air that is yet to be touched

By any other human being

Being human

You can’t turn it off

I know you didn’t turn it on

But you can’t turn it off

Gomez Pop Juice

You went there until you crash here

Then woken up to wonder where the night went

Keep breathin’ it’ll come back again

Tonight will be different, we will all be saved

My name’s Jimmy, I’m an alcoholic

And I have been for 33 years or more

So kill me, I will die without it

It’s like this wherever I go

So we crashed down in BB’s

Keep quiet because the question is elaborate

You need a lawyer, a doctor, a drink

To keep survivin’ keep me firin’, oh

My name’s Jimmy, I’m an alcoholic

And I have been for 33 years or more

So kill me, I will die without it

It’s like this wherever I go

I don’t feel like goin’ out

I don’t feel like goin’ out

Feel like goin’ out

I don’t feel like goin’ out

I don’t feel like goin’ out

Feel like goin’ out

Feel like goin’ out

My name’s Jimmy, I’m an alcoholic

And I have been for 33 years or more

So kill me, I will die without it

It’s like this wherever I go

My name’s Jimmy, I’m an alcoholic

And I have been for 33 years or more

So kill me, I will die without it

It’s like this wherever I go

Do you feel like goin’ out?

Do you feel like goin’ out?

Do you feel like goin out?

Do you feel like goin’ out?

Do you feel like goin’ out?

Do you feel like goin’ out?

Do you feel like goin’ out?

Gomez Rex Kramer

I’ve been lost and now found my way

Take me down and save, show me the way

Take me places that I want to stay

Here’s to today, here’s to today

I’ve been knocked but now I’m on my feet

Call or light up whenever I get in this deep

Take me places that I know from sleep

Let me sleep, let me sleep

Head out and fade out

Keep on the light on, turn it up

Head out and fall down now

Keep the light on and turn it up

I don’t, cannot live with things you say

Guys don’t want you to let it go anyway

Wake me tenderly and leave me to lay

Let me sleep, let me sleep

Head out and fade out

Keep the light on, turn it up

Head out and fall down now

Keep the light on and turn it up

Here’s to today

Here’s to today

Here’s to today

Here’s to today

Gomez Ruff Stuff

Bust up

No trust

Getting along

Best get clean, get on

She’s gone, I’m gone

Ruff stuff

Something’s wrong

Best get clean, get on

I’m spending all her money

On the best that I can buy

So I’m locked up

Trussed up

Shackles on

Best get clean for her

Jittery soup

Stuffed turkey

Cold cop

Best get clean for her

I’m hot and feeling funny

I’m sweating to get dry

Darling

(Come back!)

I’ve given up fags and drugs now baby

Darling

(Come back!)

I’ve had enough of the ruff stuff, baby

Darling

(Come back!)

Been hangin’ round in smack bogs, baby

Darling

(Come back!)

I’ve given up fags and drugs now baby

Leave your fever, breather

Get off

Get off

Get on

Feeling weak

Downbeat

Two weeks of two

Need help for her

I’m sick with paranoia

It’s the most that I can do

Hot meal

Warm bath

On my feet

Got it beat for you

Take a look

Early nights

Good books

Cook and clean for you

So go and call your mother

‘Cause she’s been using too

Darling

(Come back!)

I’ve given up fags and drugs now baby

Darling

(Come back!)

I’ve had enough of the ruff stuff, baby

Darling

(Come back!)

Been hangin’ round in smack bogs, baby

Darling

(Come back!)

I’ve given up fags and drugs now baby

Gomez Sunset Gates

A thousand miles

But don’t turn off this road

From desert skies

Towards a strange new home

A paper bag

With everything she owns

With arms wide open

The night is closed

Please make haste to where this

Rocket’ll scrape the skies

The teeming shores

Meet your new marvel’s eyes

I’ll follow her

Everywhere she goes

With arms wide open

The night is closed

Arms wide open

The night is closed

Everywhere she goes

Everywhere she goes

Arms wide open

Everywhere she goes

Everywhere she goes

Everywhere she goes

Gomez Win Park Slope

Welcome into the new wave

I, I guess it’s been ten years

You gotta try to remember

The weight of the tide

You gotta try to remember

Yes, yes, yes you look wonderful

And, I, I look like I could use some rest

You gotta try to remember

The weight of the tide

You wait for the drop

Gomez Waster

I love my life on Mars

It has a side of perfect slumber

Just like a lucky charm

Keeps the nights from mornings after

And though I find it hard

I might say with a gay abandon

Girl, we got it all

A room with a view of the rings of Saturn

Girl, we got it all

Come spend your life on Mars

If you taste it, la la la, don’t waste it, la la la

If you have the thing, you’ve always desired

Don’t break it, la la la

If you crave her, la la la, don’t waster her, la la la

If you have the one, you’ve always desired

Don’t break her, la la la

I said you waste her, you waster

My mind may go astray

But that don’t mean that you should follow

This road to Mandalay

Where you might drown when the water’s shallow

And though you’ll find it hard

You might add with a gay abandon

Now, girl, we got it all

On Santa Monica Boulevard

Girl, we got it all

Come hang on the Boulevard

If you taste it, la la la, don’t waste it, la la la

If you have the one, you’ve always desired

Don’t break it, la la la

If you crave her, la la la, enslave her, la la la

If you have the one, you’ve always desired

Don’t break her, la la la

I said you waste her, you waster

If you taste it, la la la, don’t waste it, la la la

If you find the thing, you’ve always admired

Don’t break it, la la la

If you crave her, la la la, enslave her, la la la

If you find the one, you’ve always desired

Don’t break her, la la la

I said you waste her, you waster

(La la la, la la la, la la la, la la la)

You waster, you waster

(La la la, la la la, la la la, la la la)

Gomez Whippin’ Piccadilly

Once upon a time, not too long ago

We took a day out in Manchester

We all fall down

There’s not enough hours in a day

Played a bit of football, fell into the union

Barged our way into the toilet

With the kung fu king

There’s not enough hours in a day

I remember seeing someone dressed in a suit

Looking like a lunatic

And we all fall down

There’s not enough hours in a trip

Well, academy cogwheels breaking your hand

But we got lovely posters for sale

And we all fall down

There’s not enough hours in a day

We like loving, yeah

And the wine we share

We like loving, yeah

And the wine we share

Finally made our way back to the train

Rolling into Sheffield tonight

And it all falls down

There’s not enough hours in our life

So try and guess my weight, waiting at the station

Whippin’ Piccadilly tonight

And it all falls down

There’s not enough hours in our life

We like loving, yeah

And the wine we share

We like loving, yeah

And the wine we share

Gomez Other Plans

Doodle your name

into the palm of my hand

A name so strange

its hard to let go

I feel summer closing in

Its no secret

You’ve got other plans

(that don’t involve me)

I’m dissapointed

though I try to understand

why

I understand

why

it is

passing notes and glances

keep your eye on the ball

but the door you can’t wait to walk out

Im the only one who doesnt wanna leave

Its no secret

I know you’ve got other plans

(that don’t involve me)

Just cause he’s closer

I would walk a hundred miles

or more

If you would only

let me in

Your love….Your love

my love

you’re love…you’re so far away

you’re love is so far

summers gone

Its no secret

I know You’ve got other plans

(that don’t involve me)

But I’m not givin up

I know I still got a chance

when

we start over

next year

Gomez Sweet Virginia

I couldn’t tell

The weight of the world

Was on your shoulders

Couldn’t tell you were unhappy

You were unwell

I go along like nothing is wrong

No need to worry

Too late to feel sorrow

Upon borrowed time

And now there’s no answers

No easy way out

Take it all if you want

Take it all if you want

If you know how to run

Sweet Virginia, you should run

If you know how to play

Sweet Virginia, you should play

If you know how to say

Sweet Virginia, you should say

If you know how to be

Be without me, you should be

You should be

I couldn’t see

It seems I don’t learn

Or get the message

Don’t know you you carry

It all by yourself

How can it be

It doesn’t belong

It’s so not funny

This vintage of violence

Again on parade

And now there’s no wonder

No shelter from shame

Be alone if you want

Be alone if you want

If you know how to run

Sweet Virginia, you should run

If you know how to play

Sweet Virginia, you should play

If you know how to say

Sweet Virginia, you should say

If you know how to be

Be without me, you should be

You should be

If you know how to run

Sweet Virginia, you should run

If you know how to play

Sweet Virginia, you should play

If you know how to say

Sweet Virginia, you should say

If you know how to be

Be without me, you should be

You should be
