From the Album:            Down On The Upside  1996 (A)

     Follow as into the desert
     As thirsty as you are
     Crack a smile and cut your mouth
     And drown in alcohol
     Cause down below the truth is lying
     Beneath the riverbed
     So quench yourself and drink the water
     That flows below her head

     Oh no there she goes
     Out in the sunshine the sun is mine

     I shot my love today would you cry for me
     I lost my head again would you lie for me
     I left her in the sand just a burden in my hand
     I lost my head again would you cry for me

     Close your eyes and bow your head
     I need a little sympathy
     Cause fear is strong and love's for everyone
     Who isn't me
     So kill your health and kill yourself
     And kill everything you love
     And if you live you can fall to pieces
     And suffer with my ghost
     Just a burden in my hand
     Just another anchor on my heart
     Just a tumor in my head
     And I'm in the dark
