Road Salt One: Ivory Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Rockerkey
1. No Way
There is no way that you can love her like I do.
Oh no, there is no way - I see through you.
'Cause when I hold her in the night,
All that is wrong will become right.
And I know that she feels it, too,
'Cause no-one loves her like I do.

There is no way that you could know her like I do.
Oh no, there is now way you'll ever do.
She is a flower of the wild,
Oh, and I have seen her from her darkest side.
She is a twisted little ride,
And you will never know her like I do.

But still I'm crying, feels like bleeding from two self-inflicted wounds.
Young and helpless, treading water in a cesspool of maroon.
Feels like dying, feels like dying... But I'll live!
But I'll live!
But I'll live!
But I'll live!

There is now way that you could touch her like I do.
Oh no, she thinks of me when she's with you.
She wants it gently like a child,
But play her right and she goes wild.
But one step wrong and she will hide.
And you will never touch her like I do.

There is now way that you can fuck her like I can.
Oh no, you're simply not that kind of man.
'Cause sometime when she's screaming no,
She really wants for you to go, go, go.
But you can never ask her why,
No, then she will close up and deny.

But still I'm bleeding this old road salt from my self-inflicted eyes.
Slowly scarring and corroding, to thaw this young heart of ice.
And I'm kneeling, yes I'm kneeling... But I'll live!
But I'll live!
But I'll live!
But I'll live!

I can see how you would need her to spice up your grind.
I can see why she moves you - knocks you out of orbit and mind.
And I can see how you need her to save you from yourself.
Unmeshing you from your grid, to dust you off on your shelf.

But I can't see why she needs you.
No.
I can't see that at all.
You'd have something that I don't?
Would that be possible?
Would that be possible?
Would that be possible?
Would that be possible?
2. She Likes to Hide
She likes to hide.
She likes to hide.
She likes to hide, and I don't know why.
I'd ask but she's too hard to find.
She likes to hide.

This Tuesday I almost tried to ask her why
But she got that look in her eyes.
She likes to hide.
She likes to hide.

Last night I asked her why, and first she smiled,
But then she just broke down and cried.
She likes to hide.
She likes to hide.

She told me that she'll be fine, but I'm pretty sure that she lied.
See, she likes to hide.

She plays this game where I'm supposed to find out the reason why she likes to hide.
She plays that game each night.
I fail to find out, 'cause I am where I like to hide,
I am where I like to hide,
I am where I like to hide,
I am where I like to hide.
3. Sisters
When all are dizzy and happy from too much wine
I leave the party behind
To be alone with my thoughts and this spinning mind
Through this cold night
But there she stands

And she walks like you
And she smiles almost like you
A child of the wild just like you
Yes.

For a second I think I get a glimpse
Of the real her, behind
She's warm and fragile
With smiles that reach to her eyes
But just this moment,
A change so sublime

If she looked me deep into my eyes
And softly asked me too
I'd be in her bed and in her flesh
And waste a life I knew

So I hold my breath and close my eyes
And focus on the wine
Let this trembling moment pass us by
So I could say goodnight

But then, an impulse
I almost touched her face
Before I pulled back my hand
And we get nervous
We laugh and she spills her wine
Both so awkward, for what's on our mind

And she talks like you
And she smells almost like you
A child of the wild just like you
But she's not all you
Even strives not to be you
Just like every sister would do

And perhaps it's the want
Of you in her eyes
But I want her this one single time
...Just this one time

If she looked me deep into my eyes
And softly asked me too
I'd be in her bed and in her flesh
And waste a life I knew

So I hold my breath and close my eyes
And focus on the wine
Let this trembling moment pass us by
So I could say goodnight

If I'd looked into her eyes
And softly asked her too
She would give herself and give her flesh
And waste a life she knew

So we hold our breath, and close our eyes
And take a sip of wine
But this thirst has emptied every glass
And we should say goodnight

...God, help me say goodnight.
4. of Dust
Come break my bones, come spread my ashes.
Come wear me down, come wear me down.

In life a king, in death a failure.
Come help me cry, come help me cry.

"I wanted to be changed by the road.
I so wanted to change the road.
But somehow we both resisted change.
Somehow we were both too strong.
And yet we both winded away, unsure of where we head.
And it's like we're both confused as to who is who.
As if, late in the night, you can't tell the runner from the road - the walker from the walked.
Maybe I am just the road, dreaming the I walk"

Dust in my throat, dust in my nostrils.
Dust in my mouth, dust in my eyes.
From dust I come, through dust I wander.
Dust I'll remain - dust all I am.
Dust I'll remain - dust all I am.
Dust I'll remain - dust all I am.
5. Tell Me You Don't Know
There's a me who always found his way,
But I can't seem to find him just today.

If sometimes I ask you where to go,
Just don't help me find the road,
Tell me you don't know,
Please tell me so.

There was a me who always knew what was right -
That's who I need to help me through this night.

So, if sometimes I ask you where to go,
Please don't help me find the road,
Tell me you don't know,
Please tell me you don't know.

If sometimes I ask you where to go,
Just don't help me find the road,
Tell me you don't know.

If sometimes I ask you where to go,
Please don't help me find the road,
Tell me you don't know,
Tell me you don't know.
No, no, no..
6. Sleeping Under the Stars
Wait darling wait, for the sound of electric guitars.
Wait darling wait, you will soon be in bed with the stars.

Wait darling wait, and don't worry 'cause you will see,
Semen stains wash out surprisingly easily,
From leather back-seats of expensive cars,
And soiled toilet seats in the bars.

But why worry about emotional scars,
When tonight you'll be sleeping under the stars.

Wait darling wait, and don't worry 'cause you will see,
Semen stains wash out surprisingly easily,
From leather back-seats of expensive cars,
And soiled toilet seats in the bars.

But why worry about emotional scars,
When tonight you'll be sleeping under the.. Stars.

Wait darling wait, for the moment he catches your eyes.
Wait darling wait, "You're the shit" as they say in.
As they say at.
Wherever
they say that.

And don't worry about emotional scars,
'cause tonight you'll be sleeping under the...
Stars.
7. Darkness of Mine
We always were too close - one day I will overdose.
The cross I can't wait to bear, the sweetest drug I love to fear.

Creep up on me from behind, without a sound, sweet darkness of mine.

Autumnal grace you are, mother of my every scar.
You walk this road alongside me, in every shadow that I see.
You damage me, damage me. Com damage me.

Creep up on me from behind, without a sound, sweet darkness of mine.

Oh, sweetest little lover, twisted girl of dark.
You seduce me with your beauty.
So lay me down and lick my skin with your sweetest sickly tongue.

Deadly sister, I give myself to you.
So lick me, every inch of my soul, and send me naked into the void.
Pave the road and sink your thirstiest teeth into my neck.

(Creep up on me from behind, without a sound)
Darkness of mine.
(Creep up on me from behind, without a sound)
Tell me every lie and I'll save you.
I'm in.
(Creep up on me from behind, without a sound)
Simply won't give in.
Oh lover, you damage me, you damage me, again and again.
Come damage me.
'Cause without that pain, I am nothing.
8. Linoleum
She keeps the world at bay
With walls built to stand come-what-may
And with that coldness on display, they held until today
She would hold her own
Running all alone
Ridding her road of every grain
To stay in control

But now
She cries
Alive

Suddenly she is down on all four
And the walls will support her no more
Cries her eyes out like never before
Onto this linoleum
The bottled up and stored

She's won every war
And when she's out that door
She will push ahead of you, frowning at the poor
She would move so fast not to end up last
Aiming for the finish line
To smile at those she'd passed

But now
She cries
Alive

Suddenly she is down on all four
And the walls will support her no more
Cries her eyes out like never before
Onto this linoleum
The bottled up.
And stored --

And sometimes
Oh, just sometimes
That's really all it takes:
A hand on her shoulder
Then she breaks

Sometimes that's really all it takes:
(Yes then)
A word of kindness and she breaks
(She breaks)
And then the sum of damage done
(Well she breaks)
Spills out on stale linoleum
(She breaks)

Sometimes that's really all it takes:
(She breaks)
A gentle touch and then she breaks
(She breaks)
To see the sum of damage done
(She breaks)
Stain this linoleum
(Oh, she breaks)

Sometimes that's really all it takes:
(Oh, she breaks)
A word or touch and then we break
(Oh, she breaks)
And all this world's linoleum
(She breaks)
Can't hold the sum of damage done --

(She's becoming her last casualty)
Itsy bitsy Spider
Climbed the water spout
(If she breaks then at last she'll be free)
Down Came the Rain
And washed the spider out
(But she keeps it together once more)
Now she stays on the ground
So she'll never fall
(And runs another day to fight another war)
See she would rather drown
Than lose control
9. Curiosity
Your love is beautiful.
Your love is sensual.
My love will puncture your skin.
My love goes all he way in.

Your love is poetry.
My love is sodomy.
Your love is everything.
My love is anything.

We believe it's personality, but really it's sexuality.
We put faith in love and honesty, but the stuff that makes our history and sets
us free is curiosity,
Curiosity.
Curiosity.
Curiosity.

My love is physical.
A shameless animal.
One with all riding the wave.
A childish lust feeling it's way.

We pretend it's personality, but it's really sexuality.
We put faith in love and honesty, but the stuff that makes our history and sets
us free is curiosity,
Curiosity.
Curiosity.
Curiosity.

You say love's divine.
(My love if beautiful)
Well baby, so is mine.
(My love if beautiful)
See, the only time I hear you take the name of the Lord
(Your love will puncture my skin)
Is when you're tied to the bed with your face against the head board.
(My love is beautiful
Your love will puncture my skin
We believe it's personality)
So, do you take it in vain?
And why would you take it again and again?

We pretend it's personality, but it's really sexuality.
We put faith in love and honesty, but the stuff that makes our history and sets us free is.
Curiosity.
10. Where It Hurts
Tell me where it hurts, so I can reach the pain.
Tell me where it hurts. Just pump it through my vain.
Be brave and tell me where it hurts.

There's something deep inside than you don't want to show.
There's something that you hide, 'cause you're afraid I'll go.
But no.
Tell me where it hurts.

You tell me not to go. (Tell me where it hurts)
Say you want to be my holy grail. (Tell me where it hurts)
And your skin is white like fallen snow. (Tell me where it hurts)
I don't want to leave my marks. (Tell me where it hurts)
But if I do, are you brave enough to let me through to touch you where it hurts?

I'll touch you where it hurts.
I'll touch you where it hurts.
I'll touch you where it hurts.
And you can touch me.
Come on and touch me where it hurts.

Everyone I know seems to be broken inside.
Everybody hurting just from being alive.

Touch me where it hurts.
Touch me where it hurts.
Touch me where it hurts.
Touch me where it hurts.
Come touch me where it hurts.
11. Road Salt
This time I'll try not to get hurt
This time I'll stay untouched with pain and dirt
This time I'll stick to what I've learned
This time I'll fly so low I won't get burned

Maybe it's not enough
Maybe this time it's just too much
Maybe I'm not that tough
Maybe this time the road is just too rough
Walk down, so I sit down, mmh...

I've walked this road so many years
I've worn down all my boots, I've cried all tears
So many crossroads left behind
So many choices burned into my mind

Maybe it's not enough
Maybe this time it's just too much
Maybe I'm not that tough
Maybe this time the road is just too rough
To take me home

To take me home
To take me home
To take me home
But I walk on
12. Innocence
Once there was a me who always knew the way,
Who somewhere on the road led me astray.

And I've seen so many souls,
(Always thought I'd change somehow, altered by the road)
Broken in despair,
(And become what I was always meant to be)
Lying at the curb,
(But every step along the way, every mile of road)
Gasping for air.
(Wore down the fearless manchild that was me)

Restless mind, you steal my mind.
Need to find a place to hide.

Slowly losing my innocence.
Slowly losing my.
Slowly losing my.

Once there was a me who always knew what was right,
But somewhere on this road he lost his light.

Always thought I'd be much more,
(Never thought I'd be this weak. Never thought I'd fall)
I would transform,
(And lose myself along these dusty roads)
Somehow, someday,
But here I am.

Reckless time, you steal my mind.
Need to hide each place I've found.

Still I'm losing my innocence.
I'm still losing my innocence.

We're all losing our innocence.
I want that invincible time, that invincible me.
I want it all back.
I want it all back.
I want myself back.
