Get Behind Me Satan

01. Blue Orchid

You got a reaction.
You got a reaction didn’t you?
You took a white orchid.
you took a white orchid turned it blue.

Something better than nothing.
Something better than nothing it’s giving up.
We all need to do something.
Try keep the truth from showing up

How dare you?
How old are you now anyway?
How dare you?
How old are you now anyway?

How dare you?
How old are you now anyway?
You’re given a flower,
But I guess there was just no pleasing you

Your lip tastes sour,
But you think that it’s just me teasing you

You got a reaction.
You got a reaction didn’t you?
You took a white orchid.
You took a white orchid turned it blue.

Get behind me.
Get behind me now anyway.
Get behind me.
Get behind me now anyway.

Get behind me.
Get behind me now anyway.

You got a reaction.
You got a reaction didn’t you?
You took a white orchid.
You took a white orchid turned it blue.

02. The Nurse

The nurse should not be the one who puts salt in your wounds
But it’s always with trust that the poison is fed with a spoon
When you’re helpless with no one to turn to alone in your room
You would swear that the one who would care for you never would leave
She promised and said, « you will always be safe here with me »
But promises open the door to be broken to me
No I’m never, no I’m never, no I’m never gonna let you down now
No I’m never, no I’m never, no I’m never gonna let you down
No I’m never, no I’m never, no I’m never gonna let you down now
No I’m never, no I’m never, no I’m never gonna let you down
The maid that you’ve hired could never conspire to kill
She’s to mother, not quietly smother you when you’re most ill
The one that you’re trusting suspiciously dusting the sill
No I’m never, no I’m never, no I’m never gonna let you down now
No I’m never, no I’m never, no I’m never gonna let you down
No I’m never, no I’m never, no I’m never gonna let you down now
no I’m never, no I’m never, no I’m never gonna let you down

04. Forever For Her (Is Over For Me)

I blew it

And if I knew what to do, then I’d do it
But the point that I have, I’ll get to it
And forever for her is over for me
Forever, just the word that she said that means never
To be with another together
And with the weight of a feather it tore into me

Then I knew it
All the work that it took to get through it
On the wings of a feather that flew it
Fell under my shoe it cut up into me
Well, everybody’s reaction is changing you
But their love is only a fraction of what I can give to you
So let’s do it, just get on a plane and just do it
Like the birds and the bees and get to it
Just get out of town and forever be free
Forever, I wonder we could stay together
It could change if you want for the better
Just turn down my shirt and lay down next to me

I blew it
And if I knew what to do, then I’d do it
But the point that I have, I’ll get to it
And forever for her is over for me
Forever, just the word that she said that means never
To be with another together
And with the weight of a feather it tore into me
Well, everybody’s reaction is changing you
But their love is only a fraction of what I can give to you
Well, let’s do it, let’s get on a plane and just do it
Like the birds and the bees and get to it
Just get out of town and forever be free
Forever, I wonder we could stay together
It could change if you want for the better
Just tug at my shirt and lay down next to me

05. Little Ghost

Little ghost, little ghost
One I’m scared of the most
Can you scare me up a little bit of love?
I’m the only one that sees you,
And I can’t do much to please you
And it’s not yet time to meet the lord above
The first woman that I met her
I did not expect a specter
When I shook her hand I really shook a glove
She looked into me so sweetly
And we left the room discreetly
No one else could know the secret of our love
Little ghost, little ghost
One I’m scared of the most
Can you scare me up a little bit of love?
I’m the only one that sees you,
And I can’t do much to please you
And it’s not yet time to meet the lord above
Every morning I awoke
And I see my little ghost
Wond’rin’ if it’s really her that’s lying there
I lean to touch her and I whisper
But not brave enough to kiss her
When I held her I was really holding air
Little ghost, little ghost
One I’m scared of the most
Can you scare me up a little bit of love?
I’m the only one that sees you,
And I can’t do much to please you
And it’s not yet time to meet the lord above
Though I try my best to keep it
There really was no secret
Must have looked like I was dancing with the wall
No one else could see this apparition
But because of my condition
I fell in love with a little ghost and that was all
Little ghost, little ghost
One I’m scared of the most
Can you scare me up a little bit of love?
I’m the only one that sees you,
And I can’t do much to please you
And it’s not yet time to meet the lord above
No, it’s not yet time to meet the lord above

———————————————————————–

06. The Denial Twist

If you think that a kiss is all in the lips
C’mon, you got it all wrong, man
And if you think that our dance was all in the hips
Oh well, then do the twist
If you think holding hands is all in the fingers
Grab hold of the soul where the memory lingers and
Make sure to never do it with the fingers
Cause I’ll tell everyone in the world
But he was thinking about the girl
Ya, but he’s thinking about the girl, oh
A lot of people get confused and they bruise
Real easy when it comes to love
They start putting on their shoes and walking out
And singing « boy, I think I had enough »
Just because she makes you feel wrong
She don’t mean to be mean or hurt you on purpose, boy
Take a tip and do yourself a little service
Take a mountain turn it into a mole
Just by playing a different role
Ya, by playing a different role, oh
The boat ya you know she’s rockin’ it
And the truth well ya know there’s no stoppin’ it
The boat ya you know she’s still rockin’ it
The truth well you know there’s no stoppin’ it
So what, somebody left you in a rut
And wants to be the one who’s in control
But the feeling that you’re under can really make you wonder
How the hell she can be so cold
So now you’re mad, denying the truth
And it’s getting in the wisdom in the back of your tooth
Ya need ta spit it out, in a telephone booth
While ya call everyone that you know, and ask ’em
Where do you think she goes
Oh ya, where d’ya suppose she goes, oh
The truth well you know there’s no stoppin’ it
And the boat well ya know she’s still rockin’ it
The boat ya you know she’s still rockin’ it
And the truth ya you know there’s no stoppin’ it
You recognize with your back in the back?
That it’s colder when she rocks the boat
But it’s the cause hittin on the Cardinal Law
’bout the proper place to hang her coat
So to you, the truth is still hidden
And the soul plays the role of a lost little kitten but
You should know that the dark is one kitten?
She’s been singing it all along
But you were hearin’ a different song
Ya you were hearin’ a different song
But you were hearin’ a different song

07. White Moon

White moon, white moon
Breaks open the tomb
Of a deserted cartoon that I wrote
Creature come, creature, creature
My own double feature
As I’m warming the bleachers at home
Well, my nose keeps on bleeding
‘Cause it’s rita I’m needing
I better call out a meeting of the boys
Of the boys
My friends are all dying
And death can’t be lying
It’s the truth and it don’t make a noise
Oh Rita, oh Rita
If you lived in mesita
I would move you with the beat of a drum
And this picture is proof
That although you’re aloof
You had the shiniest tooth ‘neath the sun
Easy come, easy go
Be a star of the show
I’m giving up all I know to get more
To get more
Photograph the picture
Young grunt pin-up scripture
For locker-tagged memories of war
A mirage, this garage
And a photo montage
And a finger massage from the host
Good lord, good lord
The one I adore
And I cannot afford is a ghost
Is a ghost
Proto-social is the word
And the word is the bird
That flew through the herd in the snow
In the snow
Lemonade me, then grade me
Then deliver my baby
And if my friends all persuade me, I’ll go
Blink, blink at me Rita
Don’t you know I’m a bleeder?
And I promised I wouldn’t lead her on
But she met me, then led me
And I ate what was fed me
‘Til I purged every word in this song

———————————————————————–

08. Instict Blues

Well, the crickets get it
And the ants get it
I bet you the pigs get it
Yeah, even the plants get it
Come on now, and get with it
Yeah, I want you to get with it
Oh!
Yeah, I just want you to get with it
’cause everyone that’s under your shoe
And every bird and bug in the jungle, too
And everything in the ocean blue
They just happen to know exactly what to do
So why don’t you?
Yeah, why don’t you?
The flies get it
And the frogs get it
And all them big jungle cats get it
And I bet your little dog gets it
Yeah, I want you to get with it
Yeah, come on, and get with it
Whoo!
Yeah, I want you to get with it
‘Cause everyone that’s under your shoe
And every bird and bee in the jungle, too
And everything in the ocean blue
They just happen to know exactly what to do
So why don’t you? why don’t you?
And all the chickens get it
And them singing canaries get it
Whoo!
Even strawberries get it
I want you to get with it
Yeah, I want you to get with it
Yeah!
I want you to get with it
‘Cause everyone that’s under your shoe
And every bird and bee in the jungle, too
And everything in the ocean blue
They just happen to know exactly what to do
So why don’t you?
———————————————————————–

09. Passive Manipulation

Women, listen to your mothers
Don’t just succumb to the wishes of your brothers
Take a step back, take a look at one another
You need to know the difference…
Between a father and a lover (repeat)

————————————————————————————-

10. Take, Take, Take

I was sitting there in a comfortable chair
And that was all that I needed
Then my friend offered me a drink for us to share
And that was all that I needed
Well, then I felt at ease
But then I’m not too hard to please
I guess you couldn’t call me greedy
Then I was shocked to look up
And see rita hayworth there in a place so seedy
She walked into the bar with her long, red, curly hair
And that was all that I needed
And I said to my friend, « good god, we’re lucky men just to even see her »
Take, take, take
Take, take, take
Take, take, take
And I could not resist, I just had to get close to her
And that was all that I needed
I walked and loomed around her table for a while
And that was all that I needed
Then I said, « i hate to bug you, ma’am, but can I have your autograph? »
And that was all that I needed
She pressed her lips against a white piece of paper
And that was all that I needed
Then I saw what she wrote, my heart is in my mouth
And that was all that I needed
Then she handed it to me, and I think that she could see
That that was all that I needed
I started to walk away but then I remembered ‘hey, I forgot to get a picture’
So I asked her one more time, « could I have another favor? »
That was all that I needed
She was kind and posed with me
Then I knew my friend would see my celebrity…?
Take, take, take
Take, take, take
Take, take, take
She turned and said to me, « I need to go to sleep, »
And it seemed so mean
It’s almost as if she could not appreciate how cool I was being
She said, « good night » and walked away
And I didn’t know what to say
I just couldn’t believe it
Well, it’s just not fair
I want to get a piece of hair
That was all that I needed
Or maybe a kiss on the cheek
I wouldn’t wash it for a week
That would be all that I needed
But she didn’t even care
That I was even there
What a horrible feeling

———————————————————————–

11. As Ugly As I Seem

I am as ugly as I seem
Worse than all your dreams
Could ever make me out to be
And it makes me want to scream
When it’s halloween
And the kids are laughing
The rogue is a bank he’s never broke
But worth as much as a joke that no one is laughing at
Can you believe some things are not
Appealing and there’s a spot
On the ceiling of my childhood bedroom
And can these dreams you can’t imagine
Will never match the vision
That you had decided for me
You are to take away from me
Things that are mine and it’s not your right
Out that you’d wouldn’t expect to find out
Can it be that I don’t want what you want?
And the only thing I could care for
Is a place in a home that is safe and warm
Safe and warm, safe and warm, safe and warm
Judge yourself if you feel the need
Just let me known to be
In search of the truth myself
There is a drop of blood on the ground
And it seems to me that it’s not my kind
And I can’t be sure if it’s yours or mine
I am as ugly as I seem
Worse than all your dreams
Could ever make me
Could ever make me
Could ever make me
Could ever make me

12. Red Rain

Can’t you hear me calling your name, girl?
I’m standing, standing in the red, red rain
In the morning, standing in the red, red rain
Can’t you hear me? can’t you hear me calling your name, girl?
In the morning, when I’m standing in the red, red rain, girl
In the morning, I’m standing in the red, red rain
Can’t you hear me? can’t you hear me calling your name, girl?
In the morning, when I’m standing in the red, red rain, girl
You think not telling is the same as not lying, don’t you?
Then I guess not feeling is the same as not crying to you
You think not telling is the same as not lying, don’t you?
Then I guess not feeling is the same as not crying to you
In the red, in the rain, in the rain
In the red, in the red, in the rain, in the rain
In the red, in the red, in the rain, in the rain
In the red, in the red, in the rain, in the rain
If there is a lie, then there is a liar, too
And if there is a sin, then there is a sinner, too
And if there is a lie, then there is a liar, too
And if there is a sin, then there is a sinner, too
In the red, in the red, in the rain, in the rain
I’m in red, I’m in red, in the rain, in the rain
In the red, in the red, in the rain, in the rain
I’m in red, I’m in red, in the rain, in the rain
I’m in red, I’m in red, in the rain, in the rain
Can’t you hear me? can’t you hear me calling your name, girl?

13. I’m Lonely (But I Aint That Lonely Yet)

Well I miss my mother
And I miss being her son
As crazy as I was I
Guess I wasn’t much of one
Sometimes I miss her so much,
I want to hop on the next jet
And I get lonely, but I ain’t that lonely yet
And I love my sister
Lord knows how I’ve missed her
She loves me
And she knows I won’t forget
And sometimes I get jealous
Of all her little pets
And I get lonely, but I ain’t that lonely yet
I roll over in bed
Looking for someone to touch
There’s a girl that I know of
But don’t ask for much
She’s homely, and she’s cranky
And her hair’s in a net
And I’m lonely, but I ain’t that lonely yet
I get my friend when I need one
I need someone to be one
I take anybody I can get
And sometimes I wanna call you
And I feel like a pet
And I’m lonely, but I ain’t that lonely yet
I go down to the river
Filled with regret
I go down and I wonder
If there was any reason left
I’ve just before my lungs could get wet
I’m lonely, but I ain’t that lonely yet
And I love my sister
Lord knows how I’ve missed her
She loves me
And she knows I won’t forget
And sometimes I get jealous
Of all her little pets
And I get lonely, but I ain’t that lonely yet
Yeah I get lonely, but I ain’t that lonely yet
