Stuck between

Limousines

Break my heart

You got me running

But I can’t see you coming baby

Keep her clean

Razor sharp

You got me running

But I can’t see you coming baby

Blissful queen

Shining star

Glistening

Wedding ring

Gone too far

Veruca Salt Break-Up Song

I crawl out of sight for you, dear

I melt with the night, I disappear

I won’t have more fun with you

never get drunk with you

I’ll let you go for good

I’ve pulled it apart for you dear

I wait for my heart to shift gear

I’ll never sleep late with you

never get baked with you

I’ll let you down for good

I’ll never go back to you

never shoot smack with you

I’ll let you go for good [x2]

I’ll let you go

Veruca Salt Cock Of Nothing

Hold me up, I cannot stand

I’m nothing, I’m your man

Feel like blur, I know you can

I’m nothing, I’m your man

Hold me up, I hold you down

And you’ll be thankful

you have found a man, like me

If I’m bad, you’ll smack my hand

Little baby, little man

forty pounder in the sand

Cock of nothing, I’m your man

Hold me up, I hold you down

And you’ll be thankful

you have found a man, like me

Oh no, here I go

See I can’t connect

If I can’t control

And see I can’t release,

no I can’t let go,

And I can’t let you go

Hold me up, I hold you down

And you’ll be thankful

you have found a man,

like me [x3]

Veruca Salt Atlernica

I made it

I made it out

Just in time to hear the engines stop

I made it

I made it back

Long enough to sail across your sky

Now I’m whole…

Dislocated

Complicated everything

When it was so simple to love you

I hate it

I hate it now

How you opened up the sky for us

And we fell through

Stepping over bodies, I can’t find you

Now I’m whole…

This is Alternica

Desert and the plains

And the ocean waves

Oh brave Alternica

Remember what you know

And you’re not alone

All hail Alternica

What you learn is gone

And we’re going, going

And in the end it comes around

Comes around again

[x4]

Veruca Salt Disconnected

Disconnected, it’s the way that I wanted it to be

The Cult Electric is my favorite record of the week

Cause I’m not feeling sweet

But I can’t say that, when everyone is so judgmental

And I can’t play back, all the times when you were gentle

Cause even you can’t be true

It’s astounding what love can do to a city

Laurel Canyon was the best place for you and me to be

I chose the curtains and I dreamed a dream of domesticity

What a freak you made of me

Now I’m on Zoloft, because you told me I was crazy

And I won’t jump, cause now I know you’d never catch me

And I can’t leave you, because you swore you’d never let me

But even you talk shit too

It’s January when I jumped the fence of your backyard

Finish the fairy tale that you were drunk enough to start

It’s kind of scary when your lover leaves you for a movie star

And I’m still in the dark

But you have trained me, to watch my back and drop my standards

And you have shamed me, since the first time you were with her

And you cant make me, love your band or buy your records

Cause you have tainted, my respect for your adventures

And you will never have the chance to trace my features (it’s kind of scary when your lover leaves you)

And you will never make me feel like such a loser (it’s kind of scary when your lover leaves you)

And you can have the past ’cause I’m in love with the future (it’s kind of scary when your lover leaves you)

I’m in love with the future (it’s kind of scary when your lover leaves you)

And I have met a boy who makes you look so shallow (it’s kind of scary when your lover leaves you) (I’m in love with the future)

And there is so much time and so much space to travel (it’s kind of scary when your lover leaves you) (I’m in love with the future)

And I will make the climb and I will kiss the gravel (it’s kind of scary when your lover leaves you) (I’m in love with the future)

(Touch the sky) (It’s kinda scary)

And I will kiss the gravel (I’m in love with the future)

(Touch the sky) (It’s kinda scary)

And I will kiss the gravel

I’ll touch the sky

I’ll touch the sky

Watch me, watch me

I’ll touch the sky

I’ll touch

The sky, the sky

Veruca Salt Benjamin

Take me away, I know

I could use the rest.

I wanna clear up this mess.

I need a few days,

with my good sense.

I need a few good days.

Benjamin, no.. oh.. [x2]

Benjamin, no..

where did you go? No, no..

When you were falling from my tree,

I was not scared.

I thought you’d

meet me back up there.

It never dawned on me

you were home free.

It never dawned on me, no.

Benjamin, no.. oh.. [x2]

Benjamin, no.. where

did you go? No, no..

You said that I could

tie you down, no [x5]

Take me away, I know

I could use the rest.

Veruca Salt Empty Bottle

Time flies and I can’t keep up

All the years I have to sweep up

Late at night I’m in my bed and in my head

And the feelings start to creep up

Remember how we used to dress up

You’re beautiful until you’re messed up

Take a picture ’cause I think we’re losing light

This is how we say goodbye

It’s how we say goodnight

Bang bang my head against a wall of sound

“Why I Like The Robins” brings me to the ground

We surf the crowd but we will not go down

I don’t want to drown if you’re not drowning with me

Late December when we’re waking

There’s an unfamiliar aching

By the way you held my hand, held my heart

I didn’t notice it was breaking

This is how you say goodbye

It’s how you say good night

My heart cracks open and the stage goes black

I count to 60 and I meet you in the back

I can’t stop gushing, I’m a hemophiliac

I don’t wanna bleed if you’re not bleeding with me

Count the stars but we can’t bring them down

It’s a metastatic beauty and it’s buzzing all around

Eight more hours and I’m leaving town

I don’t wanna leave if you’re not leaving with me

I don’t wanna breathe if you’re not breathing with me

When love is over, it’s over and you can’t go back

And when you’re older, you just keep telling yourself that

If the door is open, even if it’s just a tiny crack

You’re up at night and wandering back

When love is over, it’s over and you can’t go back

And when you’re older, you just keep telling yourself that

If the door is open, even if it’s just a tiny crack

You’re up at night and wandering back

You’re up at night and wandering back

Veruca Salt Born Entertainer

This couldn’t get any better

She didn’t get it so fuck her

I’ll never be any saner

I’m a born entertainer

Yeah [x9]

You couldn’t be any cuter

You couldn’t be any cooler

You’ll never be any saner

Cause you’re a born entertainer

Yeah [x12]

I want you to want me

I need you to need me

I dare you to ditch me

I beg you to miss me

(so rock)

You couldn’t get any rad-er

(so rad)

You couldn’t be any bad-er

(so sad)

You couldn’t be any meaner

(gotta ditch me)

You’re a born entertainer

(gotta ditch me)

We’re the born entertainers [x2]

The born entertainers

Veruca Salt Celebrate You

I’ll wear my patent leather shoes

and my golden fleeces.

A feather in my hair for you,

and then I’ll fall to pieces

at your celebration.

celebration [x2] celebrate you.

We’re quiet as two mannequins,

feasting on silences.

We wait for Christmas to begin,

to see the cracking faces.

I tip my glass and toast to you;

the blood spills on the carpet

at your celebration.

celebration [x2] celebrate you.

And in the dream you held a gun.

You killed off all who hurt you,

and left me there the only one

who would not dare desert you.

I’m safe here growing in the shade,

away from all your brightness.

I lost my innocence today,

when I learned how to write this.

Tonight my nightgown is in knots.

I toss and turn in your honor.

I’ll never know just what I’ve got

as long as you’re my father.

And I’ll keep searching here for you,

I’ll clean out every corner.

It’s not my fault [x5]

Veruca Salt Aurora

How could you be everything

We were cracking you up to be

We’re cracking ourselves up too

We’re cracking ourselves up to be you

Had you in my hand

Now where’d you go, Aurora?

See you up ahead,

but I don’t know if I can go as far as you go

Everything keeps happening

And it’s happening to me

I’m losing sight of its meaning

You blew away the meaning

I had it in my hand

Now where did it go, Aurora?

I see you up ahead,

but I don’t know if I can go as far as you go

And everyone keeps telling me that this is good

I needed you to tell me it was good too

Had you in my hand

Now where’d you go, Aurora?

I see you up ahead,

but I don’t know if I can go as far as you go
