Grand Opening and Closing Lyrics

(6)
Submitted by level
1. Sleep Is Wrong
Writhing in the opus
Never forget this
Reeling in the sweet grip
Never let this slip

Your eyes are yours to close
Never let go
Sleep is wrong
Sleep is wrong
Wrong
Sleep is wrong

When I grow up I'm never gonna sleep
When I grow up I'm never gonna cry
When I grow up I'm never gonna cry
When I go out...

Do not go gently
Into that good night
Rage against the
Dying of the light

Your eyes are yours to close
Never let go
Sleep is wrong
Sleep is wrong
Wrong
Sleep is wrong

When I grow up I'm never gonna sleep
When I grow up I'm never gonna cry
When I grow up I'm never gonna die
When I go out I'm never coming home

When I grow up I'm never gonna sleep
When I grow up I'm never gonna cry
When I go out I'm never coming home
When I grow up I'm never gonna die

When I grow up I'm never gonna sleep
When I grow up I'm never gonna cry
When I go out I'm never coming home
When I grow up I'm never gonna die
2. Ambugaton
Ambugaton!
3. Ablutions
She folds her arms up nicely
lays them down upon the table
wipes her mouth off as she
tries to find another word for love.
She hangs her skin up by the
window looks to see that all the
doors are open
then she sits alone and
wonders where you've gone.
I counted your lingering
I counted time between thunder
and lightning
I counted into silence, counted chickens,
counted sheep, counted 1,2,3,4,5,6,7...
Upstairs she hears the space
between the words you never said
she licks the tiny stone she gave herself and swallows all her worry.
Won't you leave forever, won't you leave for good?
4. 1997 (Tonight We're Gonna Party Like It's...)
Get in the pick-up truck, we're goin' for a ride
Come one man, it's a downhill slide
(Remember the dead boys)
Crawl in the back, we're goin' downtown
Come on bro, we can both fall down
(Remember the dead boys)
Got a big old cheap plastic bottle of gin
Nasty, but it'll do you in
Got to keep on talkin' so you don't come to
What the hell, what the fuck is wrong with you?

Midnight ride 1997, One, two, three
Motherfucker you're going down tonight
We're takin' you in
(You're going down tonight!)
We're takin' you out
You're going down tonight
We're takin' you in
(You're going down tonight!)
We're takin' you out
Midnight ride, one, two. three...come on!
Tonight we're gonna party like it's 1997,
Gonna party like it's 1997. (x4)

I know you're tearin' shit up and you drunk yourself wild
I been drinkin' since I was a child, motherfucker...
(Remember the dead boys)
I know you outweigh me by fifty pounds
That won't matter in a couple of rounds
If the cops get here first, you're a dead man
Well, you know I'm doin' all I can

Sing along, bro', with the Dead Boys and the New York Dolls
You know we like that noise

Midnight ride 1997, One, two, three
Motherfucker you're going down tonight
We're takin' you in
(You're going down tonight!)
We're takin' you out
You're going down tonight
We're takin' you in
(You're going down tonight!)
We're takin' you out
Midnight ride, one, two. three...come on!
COME ON!

Tonight we're gonna party like it's 1997,
Gonna party like it's 1997! (x4)

5. The Miniature
6. Powerless
Let me give it all to the very small thing
that leaves me... powerless.
I see my face from another time, from a day
gone by (good-bye).
Arrogant and fast, a smile that leaks onto
the saddest things.
I know I know then what I don't know
now, what I'll never know again.
Smaller now. Powerless

Finding some shoes. Losing your feet.
Finding some food. Losing your teeth.
There was a time when the world was
mine. Now it's yours and I'm... powerless.
I hear your voice from another time from
a day yet to come (here it comes).
Beautiful and slow, a tear that washes
through the gladdest things.
Now I've forgotten how not to give it all
to the very small joy that leaves me in tears
and... closer now.
Powerless...

7. The Stain
A man is digging in the delta
In the dark soil with his bare hands
To work the land for generations
Is he a fool?

And I am working in my garden
To stem the tide of grass and weeds
With the green machine and rototiller
I break for lunch

The man has planted all his seeds now
His tired hands are black with oil
Nothing grows
The man is thin and hungry because he's lazy

The seeds are sprouting in my garden
My soft white hands are stained with blood
Again this year I will reap the harvest that I deserve
