The Horse That Bud Bought Lyrics

(14)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. Tilt-A-Whirl (3:22)
Round & round & round it goes
Where it stops nobody knows
Through the rain & through the snow, they
Wind it up & Watch it go

Tilt-A-Whirl - Don't know how it started
Tilt-A-Whirl - But I can't get off
Tilt-A-Whirl - I don't think I like it
Tilt-A-Whirl - But I just can't stop

Round & round & round it goes
Where it stops nobody knows
Hickory Dickory Dickory Dock
It's all a game of beat the clock

Tilt-A-Whirl - Don't know how it started
Tilt-A-Whirl - But I can't get off
Tilt-A-Whirl - I don't think I like it
Tilt-A-Whirl - But I just can't stop

There's much to be said for laboring in obscurity
It's as underrated as the benefits of suffering
(round & round)

Tilt-A-Whirl - Don't know how it started
Tilt-A-Whirl - But I can't get off
Tilt-A-Whirl - I don't think I like it
Tilt-A-Whirl - But I just can't stop

Tilt-A-Whirl - Cuz it breaks my neck
Tilt-A-Whirl - And it curves my spine
Tilt-A-Whirl - And I can't get my balance
Tilt-A-Whirl - On this carnival ride
2. Evil Twin (3:07)
It's not me messin' with your life
Givin' you the trouble and strife.
Blame it on my evil twin...

Cheatin' at the game
Not responsible for your pain.
Blame it on my evil twin.

Well, I know he's got my name
But I swear we're not the same.
Blame it on my evil twin...

Spreading the disease
I'm just a product of society.
Blame it on my evil twin.

I learned it from T.V.
You blame it your parents or police.
Blame it on my evil twin.
3. Oregon (4:31)
Down from the mountains word would come
We would soon move to Oregon.
Pulled from the ground of yesterday
Sell everything and move away.

But it wasn't what we thought
And we rode the horse that Bud bought.
We took that trip again, my friend.

Ten of us formed a family
Jimmy and Jesus under siege.
Follow the leader it would go
Stuck in a twisted puppet show.

But it wasn't what we thought
And we rode the horse that Bud bought.
We took that trip again, my friend.

But it wasn't all for naught
Living in the house that Bud bought.
We learned so very much back then.

It was a burning bush of hungry souls
Trying to follow what our hearts were told.
But a novice played upon our fears
And the whole thing screwed us up for years.

We untied a holy knot
And we rode the horse that Bud bought.

Prophecy came and we were gone
We would soon move from Oregon.
Turning their backs on yesterday
Some of the others fell away...
4. The Buzz (1:25)
Closed society the avant guarded name the password
Tight lips
Broken spirit locked behind a painful stone cold chest
Reach into the valley of the shadow of success
Over the cold shoulder I can't breathe deep or roll away the stone
Sweet Jesus my relief
From tongues lashing, blind eyes flashing, trash can smiles
Limited words of infinite smallness
Peering back from the unknown
Mindless mayhem
To the victor go the spoils
As long as that can stand on dead man's bones
Screaming from the devil's pulpit
Intellectual incest, incestual intellect
Open minds, open mines
Like a lump in the throat...incomplete.

I'm coughing up my youth
I've got the buzz on you.
5. Tomorrow (4:49)
I tried to call you but you were gone
Way too busy stickin' the labels on
Deciding who will swim in the talent pool- and what is cool

Cultivating more popularity
Overly concerned with what not to be
Trendy little fashions that please the eye- you'll televise

Whatcha gonna do tomorrow?
Whatcha gonna do when it's over?
I just don't fit into the clique
You're so hip you make me sick
Whatcha gonna do tomorrow?

Pay no attention to quality
Churning out the pap like a factory
The only standard is how ya feel- not what is real

You never heard a word that I said
Totally convinced that the sound was dead
Creating categories that fit the times- condition minds

You move 'em in and move 'em out like they were cattle
Burn a brand into their hide
With all apologies to L.A. and Seattle
Cloning is artistic suicide
6. Ribbon (5:03)
quoting creeds of correctness
cast in cannons of care
convoluted compassion
commiserating despair

pin a ribbon on my heart
for the ones who've gone before
pin a ribbon on the air
pin a ribbon on my heart
if it proves i really care
pin a ribbon on the air

wearing walls within windows
where all wishes are weighed
wanted wages unwilling
while we watch on with dismay
7. Breakthrough (3:38)
I should've seen it comin' should've seen the signs
Seems that there's a break in our communication lines
You haven't heard me talkin' for a long long time
I guess you're in a new dimension but I'm still in mine
Look out 'cause I'm a bull in a china shop

What's it gonna take to finally breakthrough?
Somethin' about this that makes it all new
I'm prepared to do all that I have to
Anything it takes to finally breakthrough

I got a sinking feeling that I can't relay
Remembering a conversation on a distant day
Visions of teardrops falling as you turn away
I may be flesh and bone but my feet are clay
Look out 'cause I'm a bull in a china shop

Ghosts form my past cling to my back
I should've seen it comin' should've seen the signs
Sensing a swelling shiver shooting up my spine
8. Bound (4:36)
Come along with us/ Tourists on an Omnibus
Sit beside great might have beens, explorers of the cosmic trick
Jewels of heavenly magic in violent starry galleries
Caught in infinite instant forgiven of all dragons

In my mind I've found that the more I've found the less I find
Love's not blind but bound and the more it's bound the less it's blind

Lucid is the traveler in childlike monotony
In the grandest theatre of decorated beauty
Come along with us Tourists on an Omnibus
9. Media Slant (3:10)
Tried but I just can't
Keep up with the Media Slant.
I watch the spastic dance
They're doin' the Media Slant.

They must be members of some dark fraternal club.
They hold their meetings while I'm soaking in the tub.

Ruseau and Stalin must be cheering in their graves.
I hear their rhetoric in everything they say.
10. Mona Lisa (6:08)
Another lonely day I'm looking at your picture.
I love the way that you compare.
And even though that you're not much for conversation
I can't help but wanna stare.
My Mona Lisa.

Another piece of coal I'll scratch you on the surface.
I feel my heart begin to care.
And even though your mom-n-dad don't really think so
You'd look good with purple hair.
My Mona Lisa.

I'm turning on the brights of my imagination.
My masterpiece tonight.
My Mona Lisa.

Another painful day I struggle with proportion.
I'll work until I get it right.
I'll change your face and I might even change your outlook.
I'll make you wanna be alive.

I know your momma's sad,
I know your daddy's sad,
The world don't look that way
And I'll show you.

I'm gonna make ya smile
I'm gonna make ya blue
I'm gonna make ya fly
And I'll change you, I'm gonna change you.

I'll turn it all to white- a simple alteration.
I'll stop your wandering eyes
My Mona Lisa.
11. I Can't Wait (3:26)
A prophet on a rooftop lifting up his holy hands
Shouting to the ground below
People running here, people running scared
Hiding in the shadow

Turn a blind eye, turn a deaf ear
It's all so hard to handle
All the changing minds and changing of the times
Changing the channels

I care more 'cause I know what's in store
I care more because I know the score
I can't wait!!!

A nut case in a tower polishing his holy gun
Reciting a nursery rhyme
Mama picks the kids up, gives them both a kiss
And drives them in a lake to die

People in confusion, people in despair
Solution's elemental
When all the psychological metaphysical self help
Mumbo jumbo seems so farcical

I care more 'cause I know what's in store
I care more because I know the score
I can't wait!!!
I can't wait!!!
12. Trip on Love (4:05)
Christian soldiers stumbling row by row
Blindfolds tied and deepest fears in tow
In this tangled maze of mortal dreams
Sometimes it's too hard to believe

I can't stand by and watch a friend fall down
I can't stand by and watch a friend trip on love
Trip on love again

Somewhere a voice says the least hurtful way
But that can't explain away the pain
She can't unlearn, there's no return
So don't forget to watch your step

I just can't stand by and watch my friends
Trip on love
13. You've Changed (3:43)
Idolized- for years we were like glue
Paralyzed- from looking up to you
Terrified- to open up our lives
Loving eyes- cut through me like a knife

Icy fingers shake my hand
Frozen shoulders leave me cold

You've changed
And I know we'll never be the same
You've changed. You've changed.
And the love we lost is such a shame
You've changed. You've changed.

From a confidant to someone strange
You've changed. You've changed.
Agonized- rejection unexplained
Who was I to think we were the same?

Frigid words that pierce my heart
Like an ice pick through my soul
14. My Life (6:00)
Living by the turn of a phrase
Judging by the look on a face
I confuse, always do, and abuse, don't mean to
Then excuse, always do, in the end, I lose
Everything I do hurts someone

My life

Acting on an impulse of pain
Spinning on a perilous plane
With a word I confuse, I hurt and abuse
Worry, then excuse, in the end I lose
Everything I do hurts someone

My life

I bleed the same blood, still I offend
I walk the same path, I lose a friend
Everything I do hurts someone
Story of my life
