X.Y.U.

(Alternate (1998/10/31) title/lyrics for X.Y.U.)

 

Alt. Lyrics

she didn't wanna be
she didn't wanna know
she gave it all away
'cause she was crazy

i might like you better if we slept together
i might like you better if we slept together
i might like you better if we slept together
but there's something in your eyes that says maybe
and that's never say never

and i said, i wanna fill you up
i wanna break you
i just can't give you up
i'm gonna make it
another na-na-na
'cause i love you
yeah

candy cane walks
on down
to build a bonfire
to break my fall
my baby
she's just lazy
so just maybe

and i said, i wanna fill you up
i wanna break you
i just can't give you up
'cause i love you
i haven't had enough
of my baby

i feel as though i am clever
i'm waiting on a four-leaf clover
jesus has his ray gun pointed to never
and he tells me i'm so clever

in the eyes of the jackal
in the eyes of the jackal
in the eyes of the jackal
in the eyes of the jackal
i might like you better if we slept together
i might like you better if we slept together

mary had a little lamb
her face was white as snow
and everywhere that mary went
i was sure to go
now mary's got a little problem
'cause mary's not a stupid girl
mary's in some real deep shit
and this is how her garden grows

and it began to snow inside her
and it began to snow inside her
and it began to snow inside her
she took a razor and she cut it out
she took a razor and she cut it out
she took a razor and she cut it out
she took a razor and she cut it out

into the eyes of the jackal
into the eyes of the jackal
into the eyes of the jackal
into the eyes of the jackal

into the eyes of the jackal
(howls)
ahh

mary dreams of a rear view mirror
mary dreams of a rear view mirror
the face of her mother starts to appear
mary dreams of a rear view mirror
mary's not a stupid girl
she's got the snow inside
mary's not a stupid girl
she took out the snow inside

[ji: kiss is up next. rock.]

  Normal Lyrics

she didn't wanna be, she didn't wanna know
she couldn't run away cause she was crazy
she gave it all away, she saw her baby break
and in the air it hung that she was dull razors
and i said, i wanna fill you up, i wanna break you, i wanna give you up
from one another, another one should come to one another
no one should come between us
still i was lonely, and she was by my side, my one and only
knows that she could never hide
i couldn't feel her, and it was just a game,
cause i was lonely and she was crazy
rat-tat-tat, ka boom boom, now take that, and just a bit of this
cause i'm a watcher, and i'm a doer of none
come to save you, cause you're all mine
i hurt where i can't feel, i feel where i can't hurt
i know where i can't know, i bleed for me and mine
ka-boom, a rat-tat-tat, and some good ole bliss
cause i'm a sister, and i'm a motherfuck
i am made of shamrocks, i am made of stern stuff
i am never enough, i am the forgotten child
and i said i wanna fill you up, i wanna break you, i wanna give you up
from one another, no one should ever come
in between us, between us and our love
mary had a little lamb, her face was white as snow
and everywhere that mary went i was sure to go
now mary's got a problem, and mary's not a stupid girl
mary's got some deep shit, and mary does not forget
and this is how mary's garden grows, and this is how mary has her ghosts
and into the eyes of the jackyl i say ka-boom
now we begin descent, to where we've never been
there is no going back, this wasn't meant to last
this is a hell on earth, we are meant to serve
and she will never learn
bye bye, baby goodbye
