Wake Me When It's Over Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Where There's a Whip There's a Way (6:44)
Nobody knows how to tie the simple knots that I know
Getting weak in the knees and your bruises are beginning to show
The only way she knows how to take it is blow by blow
Strapped to the rack with a slap on the ass should make her eyes glow
I ain't no boy of bondage, you can use it, you can use it
I'm a loose lip talking jockey with a whip & track to prove it
I'm the dehumanizing master
You better start your talking, cause I get what I go after
Where, where there's a whip, there's a way
Where, where there's a whip, there's a way
The devil in she likes the sweet beating dreams everyday
Where, where there's a whip, there's a way
When it's time to leave the baby I'll let you know
I've got you buckled to the floorboards
Got you screaming like a pooch on a leash to let you go
She grinds her leather like Liberace rhines a stone
She rides just like a pony gonna sign that filly up for the rodeo
I ain't no boy of bondage, you can use it, you can use it
I'm a loose lip talking jockey with a whip & track to prove it
I'm the dehumanizing master
You better start your talking, cause I get what I go after
Where, where there's a whip, there's a way
Where, where there's a whip, there's a way
The devil in she likes the sweet beating dreams everyday
Where, where there's a whip, there's a way
Nobody knows how to tie the simple knots that I know
Getting weak in the knees and your bruises are beginning to show
The only way she knows how to take it is blow by blow
Strapped to the rack with a slap on the ass should make her eyes glow
I ain't no boy of bondage, you can use it, you can use it
I'm a loose lip talking jockey with a whip & track to prove it
I'm the dehumanizing master
You better start your talking, cause I get what I go after
Where, where there's a whip, there's a way
Where, where there's a whip, there's a way
The devil in she likes the sweet beating dreams everyday
Where, where there's a whip, there's a way
2. Little Dove (5:05)
I'm your door to door lover
I'm your cyclone pacifier
I'm your cheap trick honey
And my baby's my bionic liar
I don't bleed cause the gasoline
That flows right through my veins
I'm a motor at heart
And if I don't start
I get pissed off just the same
Your high heeled river of love
Is drippin down your thighs
It seems like my lover's
Finally satisfied
Blow my whistle, rock me little dove
Rock my missile, blow me little dove
She's a super sex junkie for money
Sometimes she does it for fame
She prefers cash to a hot seat on the dating game
I'd like to seize ya, I'd like to please ya
By customizing your frame
With the oil of lover, that some keep in a glove
But I just let it spray
Your high heeled river of love
Is drippin down your thighs
It seems like my lover's
Finally satisfied
Blow my whistle, rock me little dove
Rock my missile, blow me little dove
Your high heeled river of love
Is drippin down your thighs
It seems like my lover's
Finally satisfied
Blow my whistle, rock me little dove
Rock my missile, blow me little dove
3. Poison Ivy (4:24)
Baby, baby why won't you let me be
You're a major pain in the ass, I do need the hassle can't ya see
Please I need some piece of mind
That I was hoping I could find
But you just kept a buggin
Till I was crawling under the rug and baby
Stressing, jump back baby back away
Get off my back you monkey
Ya got my nerves jumping like a junkie today
Poison ivy ya come creeping up right behind me
You make me itch baby you're so unkind
Poison ivy you're like poison ivy
You make me itch and I'm out of calamine
So this is how you get your kicks
Licking up everything after me
Baby don't pet my dog and certainly don't mess with my birds or my bees
Jesus I got a peeping Tom
And I was hoping she was gone
But she just kept a knocking
Till I was crawling under a rock and baby
Stressing, jump back baby back away
Get off my back you monkey
Ya got my nerves jumping like a junkie today
Poison ivy ya come creeping up right behind me
You make me itch baby you're so unkind
Poison ivy you're like poison ivy
You make me itch and I'm out of calamine
Poison ivy ya come creeping up right behind me
You make me itch baby you're so unkind
Poison ivy you're like poison ivy
You make me itch and I'm out of calamine
4. House of Pain (5:47)
A little past suppertime
I'm still out on the porch step sitting on my behind,
Waiting for you.

Wondering if everything is alright.
Momma said, "Come in boy, don't waste your time." I said, "I've got time.
Well, he'll be here soon."

Five years old and talking to myself.
Where were you? Where'd you go?
Daddy, can't you tell?

I'm not trying to fake it
And I ain't the one to blame.
There's no one home
In my house of pain.
I didn't write these pages
And my script's been rearranged.
No, there's no one home
In my house of pain

Wasn't I worth the time?
A boy needs a daddy like a dance to mime and all the time
I looked up to you.

I paced my room a million times.
And all I ever got was on big line, the same old lie.
How could you?

Well, I was eighteen and still talking to myself.
Where were you? Where'd you go?
Daddy can't you tell?

I'm not trying to fake it
And I ain't the one to blame.
There's no one home
In my house of pain
I didn't write these pages
And my script's been rearranged.
No, there's no one home
In my house of pain

[Repeat]

And I'm alone again.

[Spoken:]
Well, if I learned anything from this...it's how to live on my own
5. Gonna Walk (4:12)
Don't really know
How much longer I can stick around
Cause my bags are collecting dust
And my ceiling's coming down
Kissed the gutter on Bourbon Street
Louisiana give me New Orleans
It's time to change the locks oh baby
On my back door
I'm east coast bound I'm stuck in
Chinatown for the night
I'm gonna walk, run
Whatever it takes I'm leaving
I'm gonna walk, run
Whatever it takes I'm gone
Trucks loaded up and ready to go
The stage coach is leaving town
My snakeskin boots are tough enough
For that dusty Texas ground
San Antonio get ready for me
The Houston honeys are a luxury
It's time to change the locks oh baby
On my back door
I'm east coast bound I'm stuck in
Chinatown for the night
I'm gonna walk, run
Whatever it takes I'm leaving
I'm gonna walk, run
Whatever it takes I'm gone
It's time to change the locks oh baby
On my back door
I'm east coast bound I'm stuck in
Chinatown for the night
I'm gonna walk, run
Whatever it takes I'm leaving
I'm gonna walk, run
Whatever it takes I'm gone
It's time to change the locks oh baby
On my back door
I'm east coast bound I'm stuck in
Chinatown for the night
I'm gonna walk, run
Whatever it takes I'm leaving
I'm gonna walk, run
Whatever it takes I'm gone
6. Pulling Weeds (4:35)
Maria's crying and I don't understand
It takes two to tango
Three to make me really mad
But things ain't that bad
Call me super dad
Suzy's had it up to here with their master plan
Of some cronies' testimony that sounds just like the Ku Klux Klan
If things get that bad
There's plenty of room in Japan
Don't need girls or little boys
They'd only have broken toys
They'd only throw them all away
There's pain down below
Pull my, pull my weeds (don't give a funk)
There's pain down below
Pulling weeds (don't give a funk)

An unwanted baby Jonny boy
Daddy was a dirty beggar mamma's a whore
With a life like that
How can he win the war
Don't need girls or little boys
They'd only have broken toys
They'd only throw them all away
There's pain down below
Pull my, pull my weeds (don't give a funk)
There's pain down below
Pull my, pull my weeds (don't give a funk)

Maria's Cryin and I don't understand
It takes two to tango
Three to make me really mad
But things ain't that bad
Call me super dad
Don't need girls or little boys
They'd only have broken toys
They'd only throw them all away
There's pain down below
Pull my, pull my weeds (don't give a funk)
There's pain down below
Pull my, pull my weeds (don't give a funk)
Pulling weeds
7. Slip of the Tongue (4:32)
Painted a perfect picture
And busted my frame
With all this cheap ass talking
You need an oxygen tank
If you're gonna do it, do it right
Got to catch the flow, got to hit em low
I get high between the thighs
Damned if I do, damned if I don't
Someone's always watching me
Turn on the news and hear what I'm gonna do
Before it ever happens to me
With a slip of the tongue
I'm in deep shit
I'm so bad off I can taste it
Bury myself with a slip of the tongue
Lick it to the left and take it up
Then lick to the right
My baby likes my Model-T, I'm parkin it tonight
Gotta watch what I do
Gotta watch what I say
There's alway one fucked up damn bum
That gets in my way
Damned if I do, damned if I don't
Someone's always watching me
Turn on the news and hear what I'm gonna do
Before it ever happens to me
With a slip of the tongue
I'm in deep shit
I'm so bad off I can taste it
Bury myself with a slip of the tongue
I got a psychopathic love
That fits like a glove
My baby bucks like a bronco
When I start to shove
Get your, get your, get your feet up to your ears
Slam it home and take me to Rome
And watch me disappear

Damned if I do, damned if I don't
Someone's always watching me
Turn on the news and hear what I'm gonna do
Before it ever happens to me
With a slip of the tongue
I'm in deep shit
I'm so bad off I can taste it
Bury myself with a slip of the tongue
8. Cryin' Shame (4:51)
There was a haunting
Evil breeze blowing off the bay
That kasso smiled
As he took the kid's life away
The midway was his private oasis
Where the dope got just a little too strong
Relax, Jummy boy, it's only homicide
The punk will never know what's going on
Wake me when it's over and it's done
Why can ya see the poor boy bleed
Does it make you numb
It's a cryin' shame
I got blood on my hands
And my life's going down the drain
It's a cryin' shame
I got blood on my hands
Man it's a crying shame
From the Northport gazebo
To the Aztakea Woods they strayed
They butchered the boy
And threw his body in a shallow grave
For weeks under the leaves
He just sat there dead
Without a breath of life in his bones
He left his ma and pa crying
Wondering and whining...
Why their little boy never came home
Wake me when it's over and it's done
Why can ya see the poor boy bleed
Does it make you numb
It's a cryin' shame
I got blood on my hands
And my life's going down the drain
It's a cryin' shame
I got blood on my hands
Man it's a crying shame
Say it no Lord help me Jesus Christ
It's all over now kiss your ass goodbye
Wake me when it's over and it's done
Why can ya see the poor boy bleed
Does it make you numb
It's a cryin' shame
I got blood on my hands
And my life's going down the drain
It's a cryin' shame
I got blood on my hands
Man it's a crying shame
9. Tattoo (4:56)
Shame up till today I was doing fine
In the mailbox was a letter
From a girl I left behind
And now she's back in town to stay
Well long time ago she took my sanity
Came all the way to Memphis
To live next door to me
Besides the pain it's driving me insane
There's no way I can make her understand
And I found out why it's hidden behind her pants
She's got my name, she's got my name
Tattoed on the back side of her frame
There ain't no way you'll get your ring on me
Diggin in my garbage for a piece of me
All she found were some dirty rubbers
And a beat up pair of jeans
Mentally she's not all there
What should I do or where should I go
Should I find a little cabin in Boise Idaho
And hibernate till that strange lame dame goes away

There's no way I can make her understand
And I found out why it's hidden behind her pants
She's got my name, she's got my name
Tattoed on the back side of her frame
There ain't no way you'll get your ring on me
There's no way I can make her understand
And I found out why it's hidden behind her pants
She's got my name, she's got my name
Tattoed on the back side of her frame
There ain't no way you'll get your ring on me
10. Ain't No Way Around It (4:31)
My money's gone my tank is empty
This dope-filled life has got the best of me
Wait this can't be right
But it's all written in black & white (black & white)
I've been looking for the clown
That's brought me up and dragged me down
I've hocked my life and all my things
For a beat up pair of broken wings
That won't fly
Ain't no way around it
There ain't no way around it
My crutch is gone my baby left me
Took what I had to Tampa Bay
Forget, No! I'll have my time
Meanwhile I'm spaced out of my mind
I've been looking for the clown
That's brought me up and dragged me down
I've hocked my life and all my things
For a beat up pair of broken wings
That won't fly
Ain't no way around it
There ain't no way around it
My crutch is gone my baby left me
Took what I had to Tampa Bay
Forget, No! I'll have my time
Meanwhile I'm spaced out of my mind
I've been looking for the clown
That's brought me up and dragged me down
I've hocked my life and all my things
For a beat up pair of broken wings
That won't fly
Ain't no way around it
There ain't no way around it
11. Arizona Indian Doll (4:40)
She's got high top moccasins
And shines in the sun
Does her rain dance for me
And I'm wet when she's done
Got to be the last of a long lost tribe
I got my bow & arrow now I'm ready to fly
Ain't no bright lights shining
Ain't no bad moon rising at all
Ya got me rolling through the tumbleweed
This wild child's all I need
Well I got her
And she's all mine
There ain't nothing like
A little midnight stroll
And make a little love
Where the buffalo roam
I ain't no Geronimo
But I had a good time
I walk her to her tee pee
And I kissed her goodnight
Ain't no bright lights shining
Ain't no bad moon rising at all
Ya got me rolling through the tumbleweed
This wild child's all I need
Well I got her
And she's all mine
Arizona, Indian doll
12. Please Dear (6:25)
Please, all I wanted was a change
Lisa, I never wanted you to go that far away
Then you had to go
And leave me sitting all alone
Oh baby, how I miss you so
And I'm so damn tired of thinking
She wiped the tears away
A lifetime away
And laid a goodbye on me
At night I can still hear you saying
Hang on to me, baby
Hang on to me
It ain't easy
Please dear
Could you save a seat in nirvana for me
So we can go on forever
Please dear
Could you save a seat in nirvana for me
Lisa, every time I turn around I see your face
Please give me a sign that says you're o.k.
Will you let me know
That you'll me at the door
And take me everywhere you go
Up in the sky when I buy my ticket
I have a hard time sleeping
You're ringing your bell
Reminds me of all the times of playing
At night I can still hear you saying
Hang on to me, baby
Hang on to me
It ain't easy
Please dear
Could you save a seat in nirvana for me
So we can go on forever
Please dear
Could you save a seat in nirvana for me
I never wanted to say goodbye
I always wondered why
It's another sleepless night
Are you really, are you all right
You're so far away
Oh, I miss your face
