!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

O BLESSED SENSEI

From adolescent to convalescent
I'll be changing form
Until the day I'm fully made
I am being born

O Blessed Sensei, what a weight
To bare the whole day through.
My only consolation is the same be said of you.

CONCRETE SEA

Here is a garbage flower growing between steel towers...
Come with me!

Here is a putrid fountain flowing between steel mountains...
Come with me!

Me and my brothers three.
Masters and commanders of the concrete sea!

Two-thousand dirty diamonds shining on an island of islands.
Come with me!

Seven million different faces coming from all kinds of places.
Come with me!

Me and my brothers three.
Masters and commanders of the concrete sea!

APRIL I WILL

April, I will
Conquer the earth for you,
Conquer the earth for you.

But I'm not man enough.
And that's all it takes for you,
That's all it takes for you.

And now your eyelid's falling shut.
Want to kiss you, but do not.

April, I will
Open your heart for you,
Open your heart for you.

But I'm not man enough.
And that's all it takes for you,
That's all it takes for you.

And now your eyelid's falling shut.
Want to kiss you, but do not.

I would bend my will.
Bend til it breaks for you,
Bend til it breaks for you.

But I'm not man enough.
And that's all it takes for you,
That's all it takes for you.

TOURIST TOWN

We live in a tourist town.
Keep your head above the water,
head above the water
Before the mayor flush it down.

And I go where there are no roads.
And I kiss the farmer's daughter,
Kiss the farmer's daughter
Where she's been God only knows.

And I've learned to swim or to drown
Living here underground
I can't believe the love that I've found.

We work in the empire state.
Better keep your body moving,
Keep your body moving.
Even if you're early, you're late.

And I sleep, but I dare not dream
Cause everything you're thinking,
Everything you're thinking
Never quite turns out like it seems.

I've learned to swim or to drown
Living here underground
I can't believe the love that I,
The love that I have found.

Hold your head high, mighty body.
Really manly.
Not but nearly God.

ROLE MODEL

Who's my role model
Who's come before
Who's path do I follow down?

Who is my Godfather?
Who will stand between
The almighty and me?

Let's paint the town red.
Let's paint the town.

Red with the blood of the men
Pulling the us from the them
Over and over
Again and again and again.

SUPERFREAK!

The people want a hero, but
They don't want a hero like me.
I got all the muscle, but I don't have the strength to be
Anything more than who I am
More a freak than a Superman.

The future is beneath you,
Better put your ear to the ground.
You say you need a savior, well baby
I'd be down.
If I can't save you, I'll do what I can
I'm your freak.
Babe, I'm your Superman.

Take me for granted babe, I like it I do.
Take me for granted, I'll take you for granted too.

I'm a freak, I'm a freak, I'm a freak.
Superfreak. Hey, yeah.

I'm a freak, I'm a freak, I'm a freak.
Superfreak. Hey, yeah.

I'm a freak, I'm a freak, I'm a freak.
Superfreak. Hey, yeah.

LEONARDO

I am the brother
To three brothers.
I am the eldest
of the fatherless
The motherless.

I am the brother
To three brothers.
I am the eldest
of the fatherless
The motherless.

And it's because of this
I assume the role
Body and soul

I am the son
Of no one.
Even an orphan
Has lost someone

I am the product of
A loveless conception
Body and soul

Twenty-five feet
Of shit and concrete
Separate me
From the people
And the civilization

I am a citizen
Of no government
No one represents
Me but myself
And no one else

I am a self-sustaining fuel
For a cruel
And heirless fire
I've no desire
To be anything other
Than my brother's brother.

TEENAGE MUTATION

Too late to be
Completely free
Of the implication
Of my own creation

Halfway between
A human being
And an abomination
A teenage mutation!

I am superhuman, not human at all.

Too late to be
Completely free

Of the implication
(I'm a teenage mutation)
Of my own creation
(I'm a teenage mutation)
I'm an abomination
(I'm a teenage mutation)
I'm an amalgamation

Teenage mutation!

I'm an abomination!
I'm an amalgamation!
I'm a masturbation
Of your imagination!

Teenage mutation!

BUILDING A MACHINE

I'm building a machine
To come in between
Me and my bad feelings

I'm too soft.

I'm fashioning a shell
Keep me from myself
Me and my bad feelings

I'm too soft.

I'm too
Me for my own good,
Me for my own good.
Me for my own good,
Me for my own good.

I'm too me for my own good.
Me for my own good.
Me for my own good.
Me for my own good.
Me for my own good.
Me for my own good.
Me for my own good.
Me for my own good.

Me for my own good.
Me for my....
I'm too me for my own good.
Me for my own good.

YOU WERE MY GIRL

You were my girl
My girl
You were my girl
My girl

You were my girl
My girl
You were my girl
My girl

Have I ever steered you wrong?
I don't think I have or ever will.
Til the day I'm dead and gone
I'll be reminded of my April O'Neil
My one and only love.

You were my girl,
My girl
You were my girl,
My girl
You were my girl,
My girl
You were my girl,
My girl

I am not a butterfly for you to pin down and show others
Or a damsel in distress for you to take home to your brothers
I am not Repunzel, I don't want you messing with my curls
I have always been an independent girl

Do you even have to ask
If I got demons in my past?
Even if I do, you know I'm not alone
Even if I do, you have your own.

Do you even want to know
The lengths that I would go
To just to be near you for all eternity
Love will make a monster out of me.

You were my girl!

CHIAROSCURO HEART

I am made of light and dark
Chiaroscuro heart
I am both in equal part
Chiaroscuro heart

Each and every borough
Trapped in chiaroscuro
Black and white, they need each other
Like you and I, my brother.

I have searched for wide and far
Chiaroscuro heart
Wished for on every star
Chiaroscuro heart

An eye as ope as mine
And one I've yet to find
But hers and mine, they found each other
I love her like no other

(Chiaro)
She'll pull me out
(Scuro heart)
Out of the shadows
x a bunch

EVERY HALLOWEEN

Manhattan
All the people I have met
And never made eye-contact with
A single block would take a day

In the lake
You go nameless but you have a face
Here shame is so commonplace
What a waste of a scene

And every Halloween we dress as freaks
We dress up as ourselves
And every Halloween we have no need
To say we're someone else

And every Halloween, we're free!

Who am I?
A guy made wise before his time
And yet a wee teenager I'm
Half a man
Half a child

In the wild
You're only called by what you want to be
There's freedom to truly believe
You are you
I am me

Every Halloween we dress as freaks
We dress up as ourselves
Every Halloween we have no need
To say we're someone else

Every Halloween we're free!
