Butterfly – Screaming Trees

The hours and the days While in the sunshine, the sunshine bright I kept you on my mind Cry, cry butterfly Heard it on the wings that you’re going to die Cry, cry butterfly Well I’m sick and I want to go home Up to an empty room Four walls around, nothing to be found […]

She Knows – Screaming Trees

Wasted like a sad devotion Turns her glance at where I stand She knows that the time is this A sweet invader that could never miss She knows, she knows Waves of doubt cascading clearly [ah, she knows] They make believe that I’m no good [ah, she knows] And her eyes won’t find me here […]

Something About Today – Screaming Trees

Seems as though I’m living underground Something about today I can’t explain Walked on burning bridges so I said I think I’ll take another way instead Something about today I can’t explain Something about today I can’t explain War from sea to oily sea Waves have washed home their disease All the miles couldn’t make […]

Shadow Song – Screaming Trees

We’re closer now than I would want to be They think it’s easy if you just imagine Before the dust will trip you up again Choose the way that you want to go now I’ll meet you there, meet you there somehow We leave behind all this worried puzzle Wake from a dream, I knew […]

Even If – Screaming Trees

In the dim light of morning Step inside my room, I’m waiting alone It’s so weird that you’re finally here In the place where you’re going to see All the sights and the sounds And then the animals come out of the jungle Curious to see us waiting here On the shore of the crystal […]

Flashes – Screaming Trees

You wanna give me something give you something too I’ve led an angel to the edge of the night A long day’s journey into black Flashes of you sounds of shadow coming through Flashes of you whisper you’re right Phases of praises you can choose The ride of your life baby you can’t lose Draped […]

Direction Of The Sun – Screaming Trees

Dime Western – Screaming Trees

Smoke unfolding hazy in the sky Arise I’ve been where you never been I’ve seen what you’ve never seen I’ve dreamed what you’ve never dreamed I’ve left what you’d never leave But now I can only find one way Take me higher Rays of shattered light to bleed my eyes The spark has burned away […]

In The Forest – Screaming Trees

Troubled Times – Screaming Trees

You know my word ain’t the best It’s just another question of faith That I must take Till it’s laid to waste Laid to waste I stood and I watched you weep Until I’m gone you’re sure to cry some more I stayed and lit a cigarette I thought we’d been here some time before […]

Bed Of Roses – Screaming Trees

Barriers – Screaming Trees

You Tell Me All These Things – Screaming Trees

Clairvoyance – Screaming Trees

Wild into the dead of night Around the corner I see a light See it coming my way run Standing on the ground waiting for the sign Whoa I can’t go on I can’t sleep I can’t last more than another week ‘Cause I know what’s coming then Forgive my lies, I see it’s too […]

Yard Trip #7 – Screaming Trees

The one that they painted on the lawn And if we load it up into this gun Soon it’ll all be gone Quarter to eleven on the day of my birth In the desert wind I would have a grin That might shatter the earth Whoa There’s three short ways to live again Crumble like […]

Cold Rain – Screaming Trees

With my telescope in my hand I had to go 27,000 miles with this cane Now it’s broken into pieces So little time remains I hear these voices in in the air And I know they’re just repeating The language of the land And the sky that I survey I’m reciting all the verses Prayin’ […]

Walk Through To This Side – Screaming Trees

I See Stars – Screaming Trees

Lines & Circles – Screaming Trees

I can hear them whisper slowly Like the chill wind That moves around this room I’m in They’re going places I’ve never been Saying words I’ve never said Thoughts of logic at once stopped dead Moving up all around my head Lines are forming, circling round my eyes Turning round, voice would never die Hey […]

Where The Twain Shall Meet – Screaming Trees
