Indigo Girls

1 2 3 – Indigo Girls

from the bowery to the brimstone
i tried to find your heart
with drugs of initiation
the bottom of a barrel that drops
i understand your causes
sympathize the motivation
but all the details of this war
are just self-infatuation
and it’s 1 2 3
nothings for free
4 5 6
pick up the sticks and go home
manic blood runs thick my friend
are you looking for a clean escape
what’s left when the locks have all been broken
young children of authority
now how long can you be agile
dancing between the alter and the mercy seat
yeah now here’s a chance to make a choice
are you aware of the fire beneath your feet
1 2 3
nothings for free
4 5 6
pick up the sticks and go home
the basement lies within us
our fear comes through the door
now there’s nothing left between us
as the fear becomes a roar
once that wheel is in motion
don’t you lose what you have found
i’m talking about that burning wheel of tongues
everything that makes it go round and round
we’re all born in the devils scorn
they want to see you die
i’m asking you are you true
everything they say is a lie
it’s a lie
1 2 3
nothings for free
4 5 6
pick up the sticks and go
1 2 3
nothings for free
4 5 6
pick up the sticks and go
1 2 3
(we’re all born)
nothings for free
(in the devils scorn)
1 2 3
(we’re all born)
nothings for free
(in the devils scorn)
everything they say it’s a lie
(we’re all born)
it’s a lie now
(in the devils scorn)
everything they say it’s a lie
it’s a lie now
pick up the sticks
(pick up the sticks)
pick up the sticks
(pick up the sticks)
pick up the sticks
(pick up the sticks)
pick up the sticks
and go home

Walk Away – Indigo Girls

we use to walk in each other arms, “one on one,”
that’s what you said. now the moon is a sliver in our
eye, we stumble bleeding on the broken glass.
chorus: there’s too much repetition, you know you’re
past the point of sane. all this broken glass
you left behind, won’t let you make a clean,
clean walk away.
now we’re crossing from the sacred ground, where we
once held each other, each other’s names. when the
words are sparse, we feel we’re so profound, but babe
you know all i feel, i feel so ashamed.
there was a time when we gave everything, and it was
true, true enough to bleed. but now you feel that
you’ve got nothing left. if there’s nothing to lose, then
there’s nothing to gain. walk away.
you know i’d still hold you, if i could, its hard not to
try and change try to change your mind. i’m a pillar of
salt, i want you to understand. this is the last time,
the time i ever look behind. walk away.

Half-Moon Cafe – Indigo Girls

At the Half-Moon Cafe, we drink to our lives
Like pseudo-believers in love
We’ve been through our holes-in-the-walls and the dives
Where you drink to recall what you once had a vision of.
And we talk of our lives in a prison
Though we both know it’s better to be
Safe within our indecision
Than taking the risk to be free.
And you were to be a great poet
And I’d find my fame in song
But we somehow saw failure more closely
Than fame all along.
And now you manage a hamburger stand
And I haven’t found steady work yet
And we meet here to talk and pretend
That we know no regret.
But how much is chance
How much would you decide
How much is murder of our dreams
How much is suicide?
So you ask of my latest Top 40
And I ask of your latest great fiction
As I step outside I see that the moon is full
I have to laugh at the contradiction.
Well, at least we can laugh at our dreams
Though it’s really much more bitter than sweet
Sometimes through all of this fragmentation
I imagine what it feels to be complete.
But how much is chance
How much would you decide
How much is murder of our dreams
How much is suicide?

Galileo – Indigo Girls

galileo’s head was on the block
the crime was looking up for truth
and as the bombshells of my daily fears explode
i try to trace them to my youth
and then you had to bring up reincarnation
over a couple of beers the other night
and now i’m serving time for mistakes
made by another in another lifetime
how long till my soul gets it right
can any human being ever reach that kind of light
i call on the resting soul of galileo
king of night vision, king of insight
and then i think about my fear of motion
which i never could explain
some other fool across the ocean years ago
must have crashed his little airplane
how long till my soul gets it right
can any human being ever reach that kind of light
i call on the resting soul of galileo
king of night vision, king of insight
i’m not making a joke, you know me
i take everything so seriously
if we wait for the time till all souls get it right
then at least i know there’ll be no nuclear annihilation
in my lifetime i’m still not right
i offer thanks to those before me
that’s all i’ve got to say
’cause maybe you squandered big bucks in your lifetime
now i have to pay
but then again it feels like some sort of inspiration
to let the next life off the hook
but she’ll say “look what i had to overcome from my last life
i think i’ll write a book”
how long till my soul gets it right
can any human being ever reach the highest light
except for galileo god rest his soul
(except for the resting soul of galileo)
king of night vision, king of insight
how long
(till my soul gets it right)
[til we reach the highest light]
how long
(till my soul gets it right)
[til we reach the highest light]
how long

Indigo Girls – Daddy’s All Gone

Don’t have much to say
Thought I’d call you up anyway
Just to try and tell you the way
That I feel today –
Oh, I miss you baby.
Sure, I’m on the road
I don’t need to say much more
Just the same old well known stranger
That I was before –
Seems like yesterday.
Daddy’s all gone
He’s just a halfway home
He’s holding on to the telephone
Singing “Please –
Don’t let the show go on.”
There’s a bus every other hour
Even a midnight train
But that don’t leave me the power
To see your face again –
It’s not that simple anymore.
You see, there’s a room full of smiling faces
And there’s a man standing by the door
When he says it’s time we take our places
And get down on the floor –
Oh, I’d like to kill him, baby.
Daddy’s all gone
He’s just a halfway home
He’s hanging on to the microphone
Singing “Please –
Don’t let the show go on.”
