Soul Asylum

99% – Soul Asylum

I don’t own you but I know you’re mine
Never disown you, never treat you unkind

But once in a while, you get on my nerves
Once in a while, you get what you deserve
I need you ninety-nine percent of the time
Ninety-nine percent of the time (x3)

If I asked you what’s on your mind
Would you say me, would they be thoughts unkind

But once in a while, I’m not myself
Once in a while, I think you’re someone else
I want you ninety-nine percent of the time
Ninety-nine percent of the time (x3)

Let’s move in together
Happily ever after

I can’t touch you but you feel so f*cking fine
Let’s just stay like this and waste some more time

Once in a while, you get in my way
Once in a while, you know I’ve got to say
I love you ninety-nine percent of the time
Ninety-nine percent of the time (x3)

Take It To The Root – Soul Asylum

Hey what’re you doing comin’ around my place
I’ve been cryin’, tears are down my face
Do this, do that, it’s always push, push, push
But I sure grow tired of beating ’round the bush

Take it to the root

Hey what’re you saying, calling out my name
I ain’t got no shame, better find someone else to blame
Talking ’round in circles, take it to the point
?? someone else to give support

Take it to the root

I can’t take it, always in my face
Hey, don’t I know you? I’ve seen you someplace
Back before you know it, back for more abuse
Back to where I started from, home and on the loose

Take it to the root

Take it to the root one time
Take it to the root two times
Take it to the root three times
Take it to the root four times

P-9 – Soul Asylum

Somebody’s thinking that there might be something wrong
Business is sinking and the crew’s been casted off
Nobody’s bailing, nobody’s sailing, but we’re watching it from shore
Nobody’s working and we better work this out

If we could see eye to eye, you could see just exactly who is small
But I do my job and do it well and go to hell for writing on the wall
There’d be enough to go around if I could just get around you
I am not down, my hands are empty, and they’re open and I need something to do

And it makes me wonder who I’m working for
‘Cause I think you know just what I’m looking for
And it makes me wonder who you’re working for

How many children are waiting by your door?
Is this just a job that I’m working for?

You gave me nothing now you’re taking it away
I should be walkin’ and makin’ it easy to ignore but I guess I’d better stay
And I forgave you for all the people you’ve done wrong
Nobody’s working and it’s gone on far too long

And it makes me wonder who you’re working for
‘Cause I think you know just what I’m looking for
And it makes me wonder who I’m working for
How many children are waiting by your door?

Is it just a paycheck I’m fighting for?

Made To Be Broken – Soul Asylum

Guess I’ll be leaving in the morning
By the chill that you gave me I will ride
I will tear out my insides just to find a place to hide
And I don’t want to hurt you anymore

You got the dagger but I got the revolver
As we rolled and we tumbled to the floor
I been ?? is it just these drugs I’m feelin’?
And I don’t want to lie to you no more

??
?? till the end
A guitar’s a man’s best friend
But these rules were meant to be broken

?? make myself uneasy
And I haven’t got the guts to make you cry
?? to one thing ?? do something
And I don’t want to hurt you anymore

Now with this advice I will end
??
Some things are meant to be spoken
And these rules are meant to be broken

Keep It Up – Soul Asylum

I’m down here waitin’ on a shattered heart
I’m gonna put it back together if it tears me apart
If I can keep it up
If I can keep it up
I’ve been complaining like a broken record
Gonna get what I want if it takes forever
If I can keep it up
If I can keep it up

Though the rain weighs down your wings,
Still the caged bird’s got to sing

I know it seems funny tryin’ to understand
It’s just that things don’t always go the way you planned
Still you keep it up
Still you keep it up
Nothin’ in the world’s gonna keep me down
I’m just a-holdin’ out, just a-hangin’ round
Tryin’ to keep it up
Just to keep it up

Though the rain weighs down your wings,
Still the caged bird’s got to sing

Keep it up (x4)

747’s gonna take us away
Take us up to heaven, gonna be okay
If we can keep it up
If we can keep it up

Though the rain weighs down your wings,
Still the caged bird’s got to sing

Keep it up (x8)

Caged Rat – Soul Asylum

Why don’t you go home and crawl into your hole
Why don’t you go home and spend some time alone

In the corner I looked across the room
To the other corner, I knew I’d be there soon

Caged rat (x12)

In the corner I looked across the room
I knew I’d be there soon, in the (other) corner

Caged rat (x12)

Why don’t you go home and crawl into your hole
Why don’t you go home and spend some time alone

From the corner I looked across the room
To the other corner, I knew I’d be there soon

Caged rat (x12)
