July Talk Jesus Said So

White babies cry

On reality TV

Plastic surgery disaster

Inherit obesity

Now we’re waiting on the angle

We’re waiting on the spin

Waiting for the second coming

Our oil’s running thin

So now we’ll have to find some place to go

And those that do not want us there must go

When they ask us how we know

Jesus said so

Speak a language they don’t know

So you can take and never owe

Make a God in your own image

Because your ego told you so

A girl falls from a building

Like a star out of the sky

But no one saw it happen

So nobody has to cry

So now we’ll find some place to go

And those that do not want us there must go

When they ask us how we know

My country said so

Jesus said so

My Jesus said so

My money said so

My father said so

My TV said so

My brother said so (when they ask us)

My teacher said so (how we know)

Jesus said so

The cops put men in cars

Drove them out into the snow

Find women’s bodies in the rivers

But nobody seems to know

Tell the kids to hide their eyes

There’s no need for them to see

Just keep them busy watching

Money crying on TV

So now we’ll have to find some place to go

Building houses high as heaven in a row

And the kids born into debt will ask us why

We’ll tell them Jesus lied

Jesus said so

My Jesus said so

July Talk Strange Habit

Love’s gone but we’re teasing now

You don’t forget that kind of thing

I grab your hand because its easy

And I miss that trouble that you bring

For all the wrong reasons

For all the wrong reasons

Show up at your door

For all the wrong reasons

For all the wrong reasons

Clothes fall to the floor

Here we go again, we’re falling

(And now we’re going through the motions)

Back into these strange old habits

(We’re going through the motions)

Here we go again, we’re falling

(And now we’re going through the motions)

Back into these strange old habits

I’ve still got a bad need for

Your barely there voice

Telling me secrets

In the quiet of the night

For all the wrong reasons

For all the wrong reasons

Always in my head

For all the wrong reasons

For all the wrong reasons

For all the wrong reasons

For all the wrong reasons

Here we go again

Here we go again, we’re falling

(And now we’re going through the motions)

Back into these strange old habits

(And now we’re going through the motions)

Here we go again with falling

(And now we’re going through the motions)

Back into these strange old habits

July Talk Uninvited

We came here uninvited

Our blood gets so excited

I can’t feel my body anymore

I can’t tell where your voice is coming from

Heard about it your mothers note of place

Felt the beat better lighting up your voice

She wants me but she’s married

Looks good let’s not get carried away

So they left us to the night again

I’d rather make it mine

I just wanted you I needed you to know

I just wanted you I needed you to know

And we know we say I told you so

We do this all the time

I just wanted you I needed you to know

I just wanted you I needed you to know

Are you okay to travel through the crowd

I’m alright but these lights are way too loud

Nothing wakes me up like you do

Nothing wears me out like you do

New air is entering our lungs

And we’re speaking with brand new tongues

No one gets it quite like you do

No regrets lets see this night through

When I lose you in the crowd tonight

No one gonna be fine

I just wanted you I needed you to know

I just wanted you I needed you to know

So if you see something that you like

Tell me what you find

I just wanted you I needed you to know

I just wanted you I needed you to know

Just wait

Just wait

Just wait

Just wait

Just wait

Thanks for calling I made it under time (Just wait)

Thanks for holding I made it up your line (Just wait)

No one wakes me up like you do (Just wait)

Nothing wears me out like you do (Just wait)

And I’ll find you in the crowd tonight

Just like everytime

I just wanted you I needed you to know

I just wanted you I needed you to know

All the come down kids will fall apart

July Talk The Garden

I went walking in the garden

I was tripping on snakes

And I ain’t asking for your loving

I’m just asking what your love is gonna take

Ignorance is bliss when you’re young enough to kiss uh uh uh oh

Young men don’t need pardons

How much love you gonna make

Keep your head above the water

And breathe before the ice of the lake

I ain’t gonna let him twist my wrist,

I ain’t gonna let him kiss these lips no oh oh oh

You’ve been falling close to arson

Didja leave your pills at home?

You got a problem with your head

And the doctor says you shouldn’t be alone

Well I got hips and you got lips

I plan to keep them oh oh oh oh

This ain’t Johnny Carson

I’ve got thoughts that ain’t my own

I’m talking black souls dressed in red

And things that I shoulda never known

True love has its benefits

And I plan to reap ’em

You got hips and I got lips

I plan to keep ’em, oh oh oh

July Talk The Come Down Champion

At the end of the night

Your clothes soaking wet

With the morning

Come the regrets

Lovin ain’t just living

But his stories fill a room

And his apologies

Come early in the afternoon

It ain’t easy

To start off at the back of the line

For the Come Down Champion

Women ain’t that hard to find

A girl named Gabrielle

A suitcase full of clothes

A warm car in the winter

Marilyn Monroe

Months turn into years

Now she’s chained to the ground

Lovers turned into nightmares

If they’re not around

But he’s the Come Down Champion

He’s at the back of the line

And it ain’t easy

With one woman on your mind

No it ain’t easy

To start off at the back of the line

For the Come Down Champion

Women ain’t that hard to find

July Talk Johnny + Mary

Hey look, Johnny is here

He’s in the corner with his hands on his ears

His little death wish was the talk of the city

He knew about it before everyone here

He was ahead of his time

He had a beautiful mind

Johnny’s underground with the rest of them talking

Doing his time

So cheer up

What’s wrong now?

Cheer up

(We all know)

We all know we’re going down

So cheer up

Cheer up

Cheer up

Hey look, Mary is here

She rolls her eyes at all the girls in the mirror

They pose for cameras that aren’t really there

Why can’t they figure out there’s better than this?

She dances catharsis

Cries out like a child

Well, you’d be screaming too if all that’s happened to her

Had ever happened to you

So cheer up

What’s wrong now?

Cheer up

We all know we’re going down

So cheer up

Chin up

Cheer up

What’s wrong now?

Cheer up

We all know we’re going down

So cheer up

Chin up

Cheer up

Cheer up

Little junkie

Cheer up

Little fugitive

Cheer up

Put your camera down

Cheer up

Little vixen

Cheer up

Little amateur

Cheer up

Put your camera down

July Talk Having You Around

You’re running in the rain

Your heart doused in flames

Your song come along

Spread yourself thin

Your hair is on fire

You can’t get much higher

Freight train with your name

Come on in

Don’t you think it’s time to get use to somebody (I don’t mind)

Don’t you think it’s time to get use to having me around (I don’t mind)

Having you around

Everyone’s been young and

Those who love a lot of fun

But check it out the door write it on the floor your safe within these walls

You’ve had your ups and downs the shotgun bullets through highway town

But now you’re here, never fear

And I’ll never fall

Having you around

Having you around

Having you around

Having you around

Having you around

Having you around

Having you around

Having you around

July Talk Headsick

I’m on the wrong side of this story

I borrowed a car you packed your Saturday

Seems that we deal with things a bit differently, differently.

I went to the kitchen and looked at a knife

I watched a stranger fuck the love of my life,

seems that I deal with things a bit differently, differently.

I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna wasted mind, I misplaced myself this time

I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna waste your time, I love the way you lose your mind.

New Yorks underwater is counting to ten, he’d rather stop breathing than see me again,

seems we remember things a bit differently, differently.

I never saw my self climbing the stairs, voices to see and best not compare,

try to forget things, a bit differently, differently

I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna wasted mind, I misplaced myself this time,

I don’t wanna I don’t wanna waste your time, I love the way you lose your mind.

Hey come back that’s not what I said,

It’s all in your head.

I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna wasted mind. I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna wasted mind.

I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna wasted mind. I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna wasted mind.

I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna violent show. I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna watch you go.

I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna let you know. I don’t wanna, I don’t want a head sick.

July Talk Guns + Ammunition

My guns and ammunition

Do very different things

If you’re looking for tradition

I’m castling my king

When I think about you

My whole world falls in

Woo hoo hoo!

Guns and ammunition

Make bullets out of you

You speak dynamic fiction

And I see right through that too

When I think about you

My whole world falls through

Woo hoo hoo!

Woo hoo hoo!

Woo hoo hoo!

Woo hoo hoo!

Woo hoo hoo!

Woo hoo hoo!

Woo hoo hoo!

When you find your keys I stole, your eyes

When we find her in her pencil skirt, surprise

You take my body as your prize

Woo hoo hoo!

When you leave I cannot sleep

And when you leave my body shakes and

When you leave I cannot sleep

And when you leave my body shakes and

When you leave I cannot sleep

And when you leave my body shakes and

When you leave I cannot sleep

And when you leave my body shakes and

When you leave I cannot sleep

And when you leave my body shakes and

When you leave I cannot sleep

And when you leave my body shakes and

When you leave I cannot sleep

And when you leave my body shakes and

July Talk Picturing Love

Picture yourself in a tangle with another

You feel your body awaken

Your skin is sh-sh-sh-shaking

Your love needed making

Pictures mean nothing when you find your own lover

And I’m talking skin on skin

That kind of skin that you’re in, boy

That kind that’s been where you’ve been

You, you, you…

You, you…

Cause I’m tired of seeing pictures on a screen

I’m tired of picturing love

Picturing love, picturing love, picturing love

I’m tired of picturing love

Picturing love, picturing love, picturing love

I’m tired of picturing love

When I wear, wear my hair

It’s a man’s world fantasy

I undress in seven steps

Like your camera’s watching me

I suppose I’ll strike a pose

But that’s so predictable

I undress in seven steps because

We can’t stop our

Picturing love, picturing love, picturing love

Cause I’m tired of picturing love

Picturing love, picturing love, picturing love

I’m tired of picturing love

In the screen I see a woman

Dancing to my expectations

A tired fantasy

Isn’t this what you wanted?

Am I turning you on yet?

I don’t know how to be

With all these eyes on me

You, you…

Someone like you, you, you…

Picturing love

Picturing love, picturing love, picturing love

I’m tired of picturing love

Picturing love, picturing love, picturing love

I’m tired of picturing love

Picturing love, picturing love, picturing love

I’m tired of picturing love

Picturing love, picturing love, picturing love

I’m tired of picturing love
