Lyrics

Sh’ma Yisrael Adonai Elohenu
Adonai Ahad
Hear o Israel
The Lord our God
Is one Lord

You o Lord
Are a shield for me
You’re my glory
You’re the one
Who lifts up my head
Won’t you lift up my head?

Sh’ma Yisrael Adonai Elohenu
Adonai Ahad
Hear o Israel
The Lord our God
Is one Lord

Jesus stands
At the door and knocks
I will open
Come into me
Dine with me
Let me dine with You
Won’t You dine with me?
I will dine with You

Lyrics

I wanna be bad, bad, bad
I wanna be bad, bad, bad
I wanna be bad, bad, bad

And never get caught, caught, caught
And never get caught, caught, caught
And never get caught, caught, caught

Don’t ever say no, no, no
Don’t ever say no, no, no
Don’t ever say no, no, no

It’s gonna be hot, hot, hot

It’s a Wicked, Wicked web I weave
In a Wicked, Wicked world
It’s a filthy little mess I leave
In this Wicked, Wicked world

I wanna be good, good, good
I wanna be good, good, good
I wanna be good, good, good

At being so bad, bad, bad
At being so bad, bad, bad
At being so bad, bad, bad

I just wanna score, score, score
I just wanna score, score, score
I just wanna score, score, score

Don’t wanna feel sad, sad, sad

It’s a Wicked, Wicked web I weave
In a Wicked, Wicked world
It’s a filthy little mess I leave
In this Wicked, Wicked world

I have so much time, time, time
I have so much time, time, time
I have so much time, time, time

To cause so much pain, pain, pain
To cause so much pain, pain, pain
To cause so much pain, pain, pain

Show up at your door, door, door
Show up at your door, door, door
Show up at your door, door, door

One night in the rain

Lyrics

Kirk Douglas and Johnny Cash
A woman worth fighting over
Hot summer days in the desert sun
And Blood

I got dreams of grandeur
Macho acts to perform
Of course there are other girls
But I want Blood

Bring some of that Blood over here
Let it run down my chest
Don’t you waste one single drop
Of that Blood

Of that Blood

Paisley Yankolovich
From the 2010 CD, MONSTERS

Lyrics

I’m just like everyone else
I’m out looking, looking out for myself
I see what I want, I take it as mine
I change my mind time after time

You, You’re a lot like me
You give your love so freely
But the love You give ain’t attached to strings
I recognize the pain that my love brings

The love You give: all there could be
But the love that flows, that flows from me
Is a Death Door key

Death Door Key

I, I’ve got me a flat
And the end of Hancock and I like it like that
I keep it filled with discarded toys
Oh mothers, I have known your girls and boys

And You, You see all that I do
You love me though I’ll never love You
How can You forgive my sin
Knowing full well the monster I’ve been

The love You give: all there could be
But the love that flows, that flows from me
Is a Death Door key

Death Door Key

Blood.

Lyrics

I told Cindi I can’t sleep at night
I told Mike I keep the light on
This is something I did back in high school
But it’s been going on since I don’t know when

I’m running out of Secrets
It’s tearing me up inside
In the light of day
I run and hide

I’m running out of Secrets
It’s tearing me up inside
Just like Adam and Eve
I run and hide

I told my Secrets just the other day
To a priest in confession though I’d never been
He told me to stop and it would be alright
But we both know I’m never gonna stop

I’m running out of Secrets
It’s tearing me up inside
In the light of day
I run and hide

I’m running out of Secrets
It’s tearing me up inside
Just like Adam and Eve
I run and hide

I got on my knees and tried to pray
“Jesus, You’re the last chance that I have”
Maybe He’ll tell me I’m not so bad after all
Or maybe He’ll just wash my sins away

I’m sorry, these are my Secrets
Sorry, this is the truth
Sorry, these are my Secrets
Maybe I’ll do better next time

I’m sorry, these are my Secrets
Sorry, if you can’t handle the truth
Sorry, these are my Secrets
Maybe I’ll do better next time

I’m holding Jesus’ heart in my hand
Consumed by His love
Washed in the blood of the Lamb

I’m holding Jesus’ heart in my hand
Consumed by His love
Washed in the blood of the Lamb

Lyrics

A salad bar of blond and redheads
Foreigner and lots of Dead heads
Got one to rub my head
Got one to rub my feet
Got one to rub my…

A salad bar of blond and redheads
Got no feeling between my legs
Can’t control my head
Can’t control my feet
Can’t control my…

Pass The Kewpie Doll
And watch the money fall
Pass The Kewpie Doll
Don’t you love it baby?

Slapped some girl she started crying
Then I heard that she was lying
She was so young
And not much fun
It was so sad

Slapped some girl she started crying
Then I heard that I was dying
Man I’m so young
I was just having fun
Ain’t it so sad

Pass The Kewpie Doll
And watch the money fall
Pass The Kewpie Doll
Don’t you love it baby?

God I know I let You down
God if You are still around
Tell Brother Jimmy that I know what it’s like
Tryin’ to burn it off on an exercise bike
Tryin’ to burn it off on an exercise bike
Tryin’ to burn it off on an exercise bike
I wanna burn it off

Pass The Kewpie Doll
And watch the bodies fall
Pass The Kewpie Doll
Don’t you love it baby?

Lyrics


Your Water Looks Good
But it’s a trap from the devil
Sucking my mind
While you’re sucking me dry

Murder on the rise
Deadly paradise
Snake skin riddle
I’m trapped in the middle

You want me
You wanna see me fall down hard
You wanna see me fall down hard
And smash my face on the ground

Your Water Looks Good
But it’s a trap from the devil
Sucking my mind
While you’re sucking me dry

You’re such a pretty girl
Gonna take me ‘round the world
I tell ya that it stinks
To take me to the brink

And drop me
Drop me right off the edge
Drop me right off the edge
And you’ll never see my face again, no

Your Water Looks Good
But it’s a trap from the devil
Sucking my mind
While you’re sucking me dry

I don’t want to play with you today
You’re the kind of girl
That makes a regular guy turn gay

Your Water Looks Good
But it’s a trap from the devil
Sucking my mind
While you’re sucking me dry

Sucking my mind
While you’re sucking me dry…

Lyrics

There’s a pie in the sky
And I don’t like its taste
I’m in an argument
With the whole human race

Some self-congratulatory slut
Just won a Grammy
And I can’t get a return phone call
From my family

Everything is Religion
Everything is Religion
Everything is Religion
Pray for yourself
While you prey on your loved ones
Religion

The church on the corner
Caught fire last night
The pastor fought
On the street with his wife

The congregation called 911
And met later for Bingo
We had so much fun
Last night

Everything is Religion
Everything is Religion
Everything is Religion
Pray for yourself
While you prey on your loved ones
Religion

Hark no hear the angels sing
Lookie here a wedding ring
Hark now hear the angels cry
Me and Mrs. Say goodbye

I think I’ll just walk down this street
And give this ring to the first whore I meet
Run to Las Vegas and lose all I can
And pray I never see you again
Pray I never see you again

That’s my Religion
You’re against my Religion

Pray for yourselves

Lyrics

Reach out and tear me apart
Reach out, pretend you have no heart
Reach out, and take what you see
Take all of me
All of me

Until I scream
Until I scream
Until I scream and scream and scream

Look up, see the fire in my eyes
Look up, though I’m not what mama would advise
Look up, you’ll be treated half nice
You were sent from the skies
From the skies

To make me scream
To make me scream
To make me scream and scream and scream

Break out, I’ll share all you need
(All you need is)
Break out, hey, I’m love at your feet
Break out, if half way we meet
I’ll be there for your keep
For your keeping

To make you scream
To make you scream
To make you scream and scream and scream, baby
Scream and scream and scream, etc.

To make you
Scream and scream and scream
Again…

(For Tomata DuPlenty)

Lyrics

Despite all the advances
In stem cell research
You’re all gonna die

It’s like my mouth’s sealed shut
When I wanna say something that really matters
Like an idiot I start to stutter
And fill the air with chitter chatter

There are people I truly love
That have never heard about God
Lord, don’t let me be useless

There’s only one way to heaven
I gotta make em understand
There’s a God that loves them
I’ll do anything I can

To save
Save them all
Save One More For Jesus

Despite all of the advances
In animal cloning
You’re all gonna die

I can feel time closing in
For so many the end is near
Help my brother walk away from sin
I’m forced to swallow my pride and fear

There are people I truly love
That have never heard about You
Lord, don’t let me be useless

There’s only one ticket to heaven
I gotta make em understand
There’s Someone who loves them
I’ll do anything I can

To save
Save them all
Save One More For Jesus

Jesus is the anchor of my soul
What’s holding yours in place?
You say you’re not afraid to die
But I can see fear in your face

Despite all of your cocky protestations
You’re all gonna die…
There’s only one way to heaven
I gotta make you understand
There’s a God that loves you
I’ll do anything I can

To save
Save you all
Save One More For Jesus

Lyrics

Been so long since I’ve seen someone that I knew
I couldn’t wait to get out of this town
Everybody knew my name, everybody knew my name
And my umbrella was everybody else’s when it rained.

Some Other Time
Maybe you’ll look better
Some Other Time
Maybe we’ll get together
Some Other Time
Maybe I’ll feel better too

The hotel room was so cold that night
So cold I thought I’d take my life
Well, I took a knife and I used it right
There was so much, so much blood that night
So much, so much blood that night

It had been so long since I’ve seen someone that I knew
I couldn’t wait to get out of this town
Everybody knew my name, everybody knew my name
And my umbrella was everybody else’s when it rained.

Some Other Time
Maybe you’ll look better
Some Other Time
Maybe we’ll get together
Some Other Time
Maybe I’ll feel better too

The hospital was colder than the hotel
So cold, so cold, so cold like hell
I knew that hell was just outside that door
I said, “My God, my God what for?”
I said, “My God, my God what for?”

The hotel room was so cold that night
So cold I thought I’d take my life
Well, I took a knife and I used it right
There was so much, so much blood that night
So much, so much blood that night

It had been so long since I’ve seen someone that I knew
I couldn’t wait to get out of this town
Everybody knew my name

Lyrics

Gambling Dreams
Gambling blessings
All through the night
Always testing

To see what works
To see what sticks
What makes God move?
What makes God tick?

Holding reason and might
Holding darkness and light
Gambling Dreams all through the night

Challenging words
Aggressive stance
Day after day
Dance after dance

Holding reason and might
Holding darkness and light
Gambling Dreams all through the night

That’s right
I’m Gambling Dreams
I’m gambling blessings
I take every good thing that God has given to me
And I spit it right back in His face

Look at me
I’m in tatters
I’ve been shattered
Doesn’t matter

Lyrics

Didn’t we meet in high school?
Where you were so fucking cool
Football held below the belt
Wonder just how strong it felt

You used to say, “Pass the bowl”
Now you bow before a glory hole
Wonder what they’d say down the line?
Reunion’s in one year’s time

Reunion In Drag

Don’t jump back, baby
Don’t jump back
Don’t jump back, baby
Don’t jump back
Don’t jump back, baby
Don’t jump back

Reunion In Drag

I wanted to be just like you
I thought about it night after night
But my nylons are starting to wrinkle
And my dress is too damned tight

I look so dang fat
I can’t get a fucking date
Two bit low-life bums
To whom I gravitate

Reunion In Drag

Don’t jump back, baby
Don’t jump back
Don’t jump back, baby
Don’t jump back
Don’t jump back, baby
Don’t jump back

Reunion In Drag

You’re so scared
You start to whimper
You shake so much
You think you’re going under

If we can wear this shit tonight
Then we can wear it at work
School’s out forever
You big jerk

You’re so scared
You start to whimper
You shake so much
You think you’re going under

If we can wear this shit tonight
Then we can wear it at work
School’s out forever

Didn’t we meet in high school?

Story

This record (and subsequent performances) changed my life. It brought me out of the arena of Rock and firmly planted me back into my theatrical roots. Performing without music created a freedom unimagined. And these are some of my favorite songs.
