Lyrics - Venus Traps Fly

 Venus Traps Fly cover

venus traps fly

nighting gale says to hip hoo ray
we're sleeping in a nest of spies
let venus traps fly met hurry caine's eye
i do it but i don't know why

and then suffra jet says to telephone bill
i just got a good eye dear
we can fit a bug to the love we never gave up
and then we can disappear
we can let the little bo peep in mod con's sleep
she can get up on his fear

so i gave bet's talk to the road eating girls
left trade mark to tranquil liza
watched jitterbug crawl on holly wood's hills
though nothing can surprise her
ask poison pen she'll do it again
if that's what you want

flown

see you come in like the rain
with your song never sung
crying in the waterfall
green is calling from the vine
won't you wonder why

you remember this
another time will come
waiting for a kiss
putting your eyes to sleep
with a single wish

now you're bitten by the phone
cause it's so close to home
waiting like the falling sun
where the aviator's gone
would you like to come

but you say you never learn
he's the one you waited for
let's you ride the wild high horses
you went dancing round the sun
are you still having fun
when they take the stars away

now you're back on your feet again
you can learn how to run
singing in the waterfall
only shadows that you saw
put your tears away

if the water runs dry

if the water runs dry
walk into midnight 's eye
never touch the sides
what anne was seeing
there's more to come
and if the water runs dry
from being alive
you're fine again
you showed me every fall
and i remained

if the water runs dry
curse the sky
can't make it mine
drowners are crawling on
coming to soon be gone
and if the water runs dry
from holding on
call again
sure as daylight's stare
you're close now

when the waters come down
you'll soon be in the fireman's hall
let the cold night in
coming to soon be gone
like these soldiers
bide so long and hide your face
when the water runs dry
you'll understand
it's all worked out
come and moving on
is it raining now

simple life

she's got me reeling at her strange command
she's bitten off another sailors hand
found her lip when she was taking her bow
must have fixed it in a drink somehow
she speaks good english in the morning
and venusese by afternoon
all my change run over by the night before
i said i like the simple life

come on and shake your funky ass at me
i won't be leaning on your charity
betty said you was high class
i try to touch you but you're made of glass
don't you get nervous in the evening
when the lines just as good as dead
all my luck run over by the night before
i say i like the simple life

i'm just a shadow of my future self
out on a temporary loan to hell
i got to make it on the number 9
i got a little space to sell as time
she makes a pindoll in the kitchen
and sends me chills down the credit line
all the lights cut out about an hour in
i said i like the simple life

bee in a cup

caught a bee in a cup
fed it on snow
caught your disregard
aiming too low
keep your havock in mind
pace out your size
outgrow these simple hellos
and complex goodbyes

be my highway home again
and no tomorrow
it cost you nothing at all
an hour ago
be my silent address
like there was a time
i'd put my head in the lions jaw
just to make you try

feel like the morning rises
out of a box
cold out
leave the light on
ready or not
or not

caught a bee in a cup
fed it on sky
caught your disregard
aiming too high
just say your half line here
blue at the wheel
outgrow these simple goodbyes
and complex hellos

scretch

sims letters are refugees
lights down looks at his knees
nothing moving like before
just the taste of her apple core

different cards but same deal
blue blood forgot how to feel
different plates but same meal

that girls got no please
so careless she falls overseas
bad light in her eye
hard feeling so don't even try

different room but same wall
no reason nothing at all
different height but same fall

heavy changes light years
few words too many beers
that's a world i knew before
don't have the key anymore
that girls got no knees
spreads like a social disease
bad feeling in her hand
must break what she don't understand

different cards but same deal
blue blood forgot how to feel
different height but same fall

love on the vine

lucy's got a new sting
and she can be cruel
heaven's got it's little thorns
though they're soft as a rule
if you can feel your heart stop
you're doing too well
locked in heavens handbag
and going to hell

sweet as the melody
dark as the wine
where she branches overhead
it's easy to reach love on the vine

david's got a red mouth
argues with his trap mind
heaven's got it's little snares
though they're velvet lined
more lover than his heart's drum
or mystery bell
there's room in heaven's handbag
for poor david as well

sweet as the melody
dark as the wine
where her eyes branch overhead
he's ready to taste love on the vine

lucy's got a problem
a february fool
heaven's got it's trouble spots
though they're shaded and cool
if you can't feel your fingers
it's not easy to tell
and lucy's singing to herself
as she leans over the well

not my fall

think your place needs a setting
not too far and not too near
i've been a long time forgetting
but it's the simple things my dear

when i wake up in the morning
i've been thinking 'bout my prid but not my fall
it takes a week to read your warning
and on friday nights you don't come home at all

all my friends tried to tell me
to make it out and make it clear
but my speech was never ready
just a whisper in your ear

when i woke up at the wedding
saw the minister convince you to undress
i couldn't stand to take the picture
and no alter boy can clean up all this mess

when i wake up after midnight
i've been thinking 'bout my pride but not my fall
i still need a little sunlight
and on friday nights i don't go out at all

an hour is long

when all around is deathless pure
come so far for what's inside
mortal bells are ringing out
have i been so blind

i will learn to be another
clothe your winter in dayrise
i will lead you like a lover
place the flower in delight
the further we go
self is not a home
take a far light to reach us
a story we've outgrown

where the hour's hand has signed
our acrobat is bending time
frozen bells are ringing now
have i been so blind

i can learn to be another
come to meet you in dayrise
i can lead you like a lover
place the flower in delight
the further we go
self is not a home
take a far light to reach us
a story we've outgrown
