Lyrics

You broke my heart not the heart of the matter

You think you're so smart but you're stupid

You're a big fat baby getting fatter and fatter

And I don't wanna think about what you did

 

I may have lost the will to love

But I found The Will To Live

Every single moment of the day

Ever since you went away

 

You're a big fat baby with a capital "B"

"B" is for what bulls drop in a pasture

Staying up late talking trash about me

Do you even know what it is you're after?

 

I may have lost the will to love

But I found The Will To Live

Every single moment of the day

Ever since you went away

 

A friend asked, "How come you're no hitter?"

I didn't bother with a reply

The days are so long and my sauce is turning bitter

Bitter but no way I'll ever cry

 

Except when I'm alone

Staring at the telephone

Except when I'm alone

Staring at the phone

Screamin', "Why baby, why baby. why baby. why?"

 

I may have lost the will to love

But I found The Will To Live

Every single moment of the day

Ever since you went away

Lyrics

Thinking of you's working up an appetite

Looking forward to a little Afternoon Delight

Rubbing sticks and stones together makes the sparks ignite

And the thought of ____ing you is getting so exciting

 

We're like a couple of animals

When we have sex in the halls

Late at night she begs and begs

Spread the butter on her legs

 

Shoot my drug, shoot my wad

Thousands watch, thousands applaud

Beside her in the morning

I'm not just gross, I'm boring

 

No, you don't like me

I'm just someone that you wanna be

No I Don't Like You

You're just something that I wanna do

 

No, you don't like me

No, I Don't Like You

 

Thinking of you's working up an appetite

Looking forward to a little Afternoon Delight

Rubbing sticks and stones together makes the sparks ignite

And the thought of ____ing you is getting so exciting

 

If we wanna be reasonable

Say our love is seasonal

Nurse each other for today

Then just throw the sponge away

 

That's right, throw it in the trash

Just a remnant of the past

No one that I really knew

I can't stand the thought of you

 

No I Don't Like You

You're just something that I wanna do

No, you don't like me

I'm just someone that you wanna be

 

No, I Don't Like You

No, you don't like me

Lyrics

I know I hurt you

I didn't do it on purpose

You probably don't belive me

Didn't do it on purpose

 

 I know I hurt you

I didn't do it on purpose

You really gotta belive me

Didn't do it on purpose

 

I held you in my arms

I sang you love songs

You cooked dinner

I even told you my name

 

I thrust like a man

And made us both sweat

And reach for ciggerettes

 

We had OK sex

In someone else's bed

 

I know I hurt you

I didn't do it on purpose

You probably don't belive me

Didn't do it on purpose

 

 I know I hurt you

I didn't do it on purpose

You really gotta belive me

Didn't do it on purpose

 

I never lied to you

I just held back

You'd probably laugh

If I showed you my disease

 

Thanks for a lovely dinner

In someone else's home

We had OK sex

In someone else's bed

 

I know I hurt you

I didn't do it on purpose

You probably don't belive me

Didn't do it on purpose

 

 I know I hurt you

I didn't do it on purpose

You really gotta belive me

Didn't do it on purpose

 

Why don't you believe me?

Why do people leave me?

 

(For the unknown soldier...)

Lyrics

I've got a body

I treat it as I should

`Cause if I do for it

It does me really good

 

It tells me what it wants

I reach to satisfy

I don't have to worry

It controls my mind

 

And it's really hell

When you're reachin' for the heav'n

And all you wanna do

Is make yourself feel good

 

When I'm all alone

My body talks to me

If my stomach growls

It needs food to eat

 

I satisfy my hunger

As fast as I can

What I can't reach with food

I reach some other way

 

And it's really hell

When you're reachin' for the heav'n

And all you wanna do

Is make yourself feel good

 

When this is all over

Everything I'll know

That's if I have a body

To tell me where to go

 

When I face God

And tell Him what I've done

I'm gonna say, "Gee...

I was just having fun!"

 

And it's really hell

When you're reachin' for the heav'n

And all you wanna do

Is make yourself feel good

Lyrics

Got an itch in my heart

I’m aching for love

The kind that is real

That I can depend on

 

I’m tired of the pain

I’m tired of the waiting

Of coming too close

But not close enough

 

What a curse

What a curse

To scratch and scratch

And make it worse

 

Will you satisfy my craving?

 

Got an itch in my brain

I’m longing for truth

I’m living a lie

And I’m afraid

 

I’ve tasted the blood

Invested the time

I’m wasting away

In my identity

 

What a curse

What a curse

To scratch and scratch

And make it worse

 

Will you satisfy my craving?

 

Will you satisfy my craving?

Will you answer to my need

I’ve been running wild and rabid

I was held captive thinking I was free

 

But now it’s dark and fear is falling

Hope pulled right out from under me

Up ahead a light is forming

Is that light available to me?

 

Will you satisfy my craving?

God, are You available to me?

Will you satisfy my craving?

God, are You available to me?

Lyrics

He who's got the legs of death

Can put on a show

Pretty soon the coke will tase like plastic

And I gotta go

 

See you later on

Yeah I'm gonna see you on the moon

See you in the stars

Yeah I'm gonna see you real soon

 

Why'd you have to spread your legs?

Little comes where you want much

It's dog eat dog when the poor cat begs

Why'd you have to live?

 

Why'd you have to spread your legs?

Little comes where you want much

It's dog eat dog when the poor cat begs

Why'd you have to love so much?

 

Remember the first time you did your little dance for me?

In the vinyl pants section of Fiorucci

You told me 'bout the time that you met Andy Warhol

He died the same year as you

Don't that beat all?

 

Why'd you have to spread your legs?

Little comes where you want much

It's dog eat dog when the poor cat begs

Why'd you have to live?

 

Why'd you have to spread your legs?

Little comes where you want much

It's dog eat dog when the poor cat begs

Why'd you have to love so much?

 

It's so hard to loook someone in the eye

And tell them all that God can do

Especially if it's true for them

It must be true for you

And in your heart

You really don't believe it's true

 

Especially if it's true for them

It must be true for you

And in your heart

You really don't believe it's true

 

Now Freddy's Dead

Freddy's Dead...

Lyrics

Goodbye, Purple People

So long, Purple People

Godbye, Purple People

So long, Purple People

 

Purple People have red blood that bleeds until it ends

They breath air, drink water, stub their toe, curse their Maker

Little did they know that they would one day be

Drowning in the mire of your politics

 

I know Purple People crying in the night

I know Purple People praying for the light

 

Goodbye, Purple People

So long, Purple People

Godbye, Purple People

So long, Purple People

 

Purple People were babies once sucking at their mama’s breast

Crying to be held and have their diapers changed

Little did they know that they would one day be

Crying to be held and have their bed pans changed

 

I know Purple People dying in the night

I know Purple People who never saw the light

 

Goodbye, Purple People

So long, Purple People

Godbye, Purple People

So long, Purple People

 

Goodbye... So long...

 

So long... farewell...

 

Auf wiedersehen... good night...

Lyrics

   There was a man who knew too much

    Boys town queen with a Midas touch

    He desired to be on his knees

    He acquired the big disease

 

    Go ahead and cheer him on

    A couple of years and he'll be gone

    He's not like us, his mind is curved

    He got what God thought he deserved

 

    And we Stand Around And Watch

    Just one man

    Not that great a loss

 

    And we Stand Around And Watch

    Just one man

    But not one of us

 

    Goes to the market to buy Ovaltine

    His skin is purple, his teeth are green

    Twenty-five look the other way

    Twenty-five figure he was gay

 

    Go ahead and cheer him on

    A couple of months and he'll be gone

    It doesn't matter that he'll be crying

    It doesn't matter that he'll be dying

 

    And we Stand Around And Watch

    Just one man

    Not that great a loss

 

    And we Stand Around And Watch

    Just one man

    But not one of us

 

    And we Stand Around And Watch

Lyrics

It made perfect sense at the time

We were just kids weren’t we?

The skin was so soft and pliable

But still the needles burned

 

Time wore on and the pictures changed

Young turned to stupid

Art turned to folly and embarassment

And still the needles burned.

 

I wonder if there was a way

To have This Tattoo removed

If I’d do it

I wonder if there was a way

To forget about you

If I’d do it

 

I wonder if there was away

To erase most of my life

If I’d do it

I wonder if there was a way

To have This Tattoo removed

If I’d do it

 

The skin was too soft

I had to do something

 

 

Jesus can You tell me what’s the point?

You were standing right there

While I defiled my body with glee

And watched the needles burn

 

Did it remind you of Your time on the cross?

When the wounds weren’t elective

But mine were by the choices I made

Oh, that must have made You burn

 

I wonder if there was a way

To have This Tattoo removed

If I’d do it

I wonder if there was a way

To forget about you

If I’d do it

 

I wonder if there was away

To erase most of my life

If I’d do that too

 

I wonder if there was a way

To have This Tattoo removed

If I’d do it

 

The skin was too soft

I had to do something

Lyrics

    Some dreams thrive in darkness

    Warm and safe under rug

    My love won’t hide forever

    It’s the love that must be spoken

 

    Spoken out loud

    In a crowded room

    Shouted from

    The highest rooftop

    From the highest mountain

    From star to star

    This  Is My Love…

 

    One dream of mine came true

    Standing like the mid-day sun

    Emptiness and anger passed but

    Failed to be in the sacred shell

 

    I looked in the eye

    Of a hurricane

    Noisy storm

    Centuries old

    And then I screamed

    So that God could hear

    “This Is My Love…”

 

    Our time is short

    A hundred years

    Wouldn’t be long enough

    To smell you

    To make you laugh

    These are the most important kisses (x3)

    Of my life

 

    Like mercury

    Slipping through fingers

    With open wounds

    The threat of death

    Heats up the room

    These are the most important kisses 

    Of my life

 

    Call me, don’t be late

    I’ll be praying

    For your safety

    Goodnight, baby

    I love you, hello

 

    Hello?

Lyrics

   Don't go to sleep angry

    Don't try to dream while you're afraid

    I sure love you

 

    The rest of the world won't listen

    As you tell me just how you feel

    I've been there too

 

    And the passion that you're seeking

    Yeah, the passion that you're

    seeking is real

 

    Jesus gave you your desire

    Now He plans to fulfilll it

    Jesus started your heart's fire

    He know He has

    He won't kill it

 

    Your hands they long to touch

    All that means so much to you

    Seems so out of reach

 

    But there's a ship that's coming in

    And it's got on it your name

    It's all for you!

 

    And I know that it's gonna

    Yeah, it's gonna withsstand the rain

 

    Jesus gave you your desire

    Now He plans to fulfilll it

    Jesus started your heart's fire

    He knows He has

    He won't kill it

 

    And I promise that tomorrow,

    That tomorrow won't be the same

 

    Jesus gave you your desire

    Now He plans to fulfilll it

    Jesus started your heart's fire

    He knows he has

    Did you think He was blind?

 

    Jesus gave you your desire

    Now He plans to fulfilll it

    Jesus started your heart's fire

    He knows He has

    He won't kill it

Story

I wanted to create a song/performance cycle addressing the monstrosities of the AIDS pandemic. While I would hate to have to single out one work that is superior to everything else I've done, I can honestly say that I'm most proud and personally moved by this effort.
