Great Motorpsychadelic words Spaceboy. It would take up some pages to type in all the Motorpsycho lyrics I love. But here’s a couple of them.

SINFUL,WIND-BORNE

sinful youth in overdrive
comatose ,but still alive
ugly rumours,wind-borne tell
of pissings in the wishing well
how we lost our way back there
surfin’ high on pissed off glares
we rode rings around our fears
and couldn’t have asked for more

endless summers in teenage lust
like rhinoceros on angel-dust
where nothing’s ever happening
suburbia-mon amour
there was no target we could miss
cruising cool on prejudice
how could we’ve avoided this?
wise men ponder still…

with the picks off of life’s upper shelf
the only place I found myself was
poised for flight in a mensroom stall
drenched in alcohol

and when sun she came peeking through
there wasn’t much more to do
cut our wrists on guilded sins
and closed the door back in

not good,not nice,
but we saw through all of their lies
not mean,not scared
but there

sinful and wind-borne

GREENER

She wore her hair like a rock’n’roll star
with that «wounded bird»-look in her eyes
just another femme fatale on the prowl
the perfect jaded grin
vacant eyes with the promise of sin
I remember thinking «she’ll go far-
she’ll be a star»

I looked that way but turned around
been down that road before
the hook is baited and the trap is set
waiting for someone greener
greener…

all of 26
omnipotent with nervous ticks
the etheral cynic
with too much to defend
I don’t want to play that game
however different,it’s always the same
how could it mean anything
if I force it ,tear it,numb with greed?

I looked that way but turned around
been down that road before
so I’ll head for the ditch instead
and bide my time
waiting for someone
Greener-and stop wasting time with what could have been
Greener-and just keep searchin’ for the places I’ve never seen
Greener-if I could have my shot anew,Iwould paint it
Greener-and not so hollow ,dull and blue.
Greener….
