AID KID/BEEP MACHINE

AID KID  

 Well, you want redemption 
A Jesus at your bed 
A teeny wee confession 
Before we all pronounce you dead 

 When you are shit out of luck 
Face down in the muck  
When it's no false alarm  
just call me up 

 Here comes the Aid Kid 
And he's losing all control 
Here comes the aid kid  
He's trying to be whole 
He knows he aint shit  
But he can't stop trying 
Keep denying  

 You want revelation 
A heads up or a sign  
A little explanation 
A plan or grand design  

 When you are shit out of luck 
Face down in the muck  
When it's no false alarm just call me up 

 Now you seem to climbed the fence 
To morphine wonderland  
Forever floating on a breeze 
While the shit runs down your knees 

 Here comes the Aid Kid 
And he's losing all control 
Here comes the aid kid  
He's trying to be whole 
He knows he aint shit  
But he can't stop trying 
Keep denying 

 

BEEP MACHINE 

The nurses wanted me to get some sleep  
While I miss the country with its horses and its bees  
To forget about the needles and the blood-stained sheets  
Maybe blow my brains out in the summer breeze  

 Hey, look it's my heartbeat on a funny little screen 
Its jumping up and down like its bouncing on some lifesaving trampoline 
I smell like sweat and vomit and too much nicotine 
I think I'll choke on a cake in the hospital canteen 

 I'm going back to the river 
Back to the sea 
I'll find myself a hangman  
If I'll ever hear another beeping machine
