The Breeders Fortunately Gone

I wait for you in heaven

On this perfect string of love

And drink your soup of magpies in a

Pottery bowl that looks

As I am now, brown, round and warm

Chime on a rain wet

An ankle, toes or two

Sweetly as it drops upon your head

Just like it did today

Fortunately gone

I wait for you

Chime on a rain wet

An ankle, toes or two

Sweetly as it drops upon your head

Just like it did today

Fortunately gone

I wait for you [x2]

The Breeders Cannonball

(Check check check

One, two

One, two)

Spitting in a wishing well

Blown to hell

Crash

On the last splash

I know you, little libertine

I know you’re a real koo koo

(Hey now)

Want you

Koo koo

Cannonball

Want you

Koo koo

Cannonball

(Hey now)

In the shade

In the shade

(Hey now)

In the shade

In the shade

I know you, little libertine

I know you’re a cannonball

I’ll be your whatever you want

The bong in this reggae song

(Hey now)

In the shade

(Hey now)

In the shade

Want you

Koo koo

Cannonball

Want you

Koo koo

Cannonball

Spitting in a wishing well

Blown to hell

Crash

I’m the last splash

I’ll be your whatever you want

The bong in this reggae song

(Hey

Hey now)

Want you

Koo koo

Cannonball

Want you

Koo koo

Cannonball

(Hey now)

In the shade

In the shade

(Hey now)

In the shade

In the shade.

The Breeders MetaGoth

Can’t come closer

Might fall and drown

Can’t come closer

Might fall ninety-million miles

No one’s here, no one’s here to stay

No one’s here, no one’s here to stay

No one

No one’s here, no one’s here to stay

No one, no one, no one

Ninety-million miles away

I am the silence

I am the sound

I am the silver

Oh silver leaves

I am a shadow, a shadow

Ninety-million miles

The Breeders Walk It Off

No pursuits in the dusk

And no amusements in the house

Waiting for mercury to fall

All game no plot

Talk it down, walk it off

Trying to get rid of the friends that I’ve got

Oh mercury

Oh mercury

I’ve been waiting for a message all night

Now the singer gets laid

And the drummer gets paid

I wait for mercury to fall

Nobody’s allowed to fight

‘Til the band starts playin tonight

Oh mercury, oh mercury

Oh mercury, oh mercury

Hey your mascara [?] in my mouth

Let’s go work it out!

Oh mercury

I’ve been waiting for the message all night

No game no plot

Talk it down, walk it off

Mercury fall

Oh mercury, oh mercury

Oh mercury, oh mercury

Oh mercury, oh mercury

Is falling

The Breeders When I Was A Painter

Inside legs of corduroy I’ve been

Heard stories of air velveteen

Twenty hours later I fill the room

With bad sex and bad TV

Go, go, go [x2]

When I was a painter I painted you well

Too bad I have to die

You brought the essentials, perversion appeal

And many lovers at one time

Go, go, go [x2]

On and on, on, on

Inside legs of corduroy I’ve been

Heard stories of air velveteen

Twenty hours later I fill the room

With bad sex and bad TV

Go, go, go [x2]

On and on, on, on

The Breeders New Year

We have come for light

Wholly, we have come for light

It’s true

I am the sun

I am the new year

I am the rain

I am the sun

I am the new year

I am the way home

I am the way home

I am the rain

I am the new year

I am the sun

I am the rain

I am the new year

I’m the way

It’s true

The Breeders Iris

Four hours in the pot, one hour out

It grows and I sleep standing up

When Iris sleeps over

What a book she’ll write

Oh last night

Oh come on, nobody wants that

Sister, sister, Oh…

We play hour by hour

Hour by hour

Hour by hour

Four hours to daylight, four hours and then

Pour water on me til I live again

When Iris sleeps over

It’ll be alright

All last night

But come on, nobody wants that

Sister, sister, oh…

We play hour by hour

Hour by hour

Hour by hour

The Breeders Cro Aloha

No bye, no Aloha

Gone with a rock promoter

Freezehead

A rock promoter

I know I saw

And now may die

O the treats

Saw it on the wall

Motherhood means mental freeze

Freezeheads

No aloha

I know I saw

And now may die

A rock promoter

I know I saw

The Breeders Too Alive

I took off

When will will make no way steal it

Like I found speed on the mic

I can’t shut up

We’re street illegal

Red hot

In ports

Swinger

The thoughts of scene a crime

Steal and all race out of my mind

I give up

We reckless op’ed

And in a hot import

Now words I’ll always say

Since I found speed on the mic

I can’t shut up

To girls that love to haunt

The U.S. is made

To streak her letterman

Back and forth

The Breeders Safari

He didn’t cry on a safari

In over his knees

He couldn’t leave a finer life

Always hugging the ground

And crying out for me

He didn’t cry on a safari

In over his knees

He couldn’t leave the flock, he couldn’t leave

always hugging the man

and crying out for me
