Guess who's back The Monkey's home again Sky turns black and the Jungle groans again I hack hack hack through Nature's Own again Between the cracks into the Nietzsche zone again Just got back to take control again Monkey See, Donkey Don't Don't look now but the Monkey's whole again I'm on the prowl so here we go again. Hounds wont howl and the cock wont crow again when I'm around get inside your hole again I just came down to take control again Monkey See, Donkey Don't She puts her red dress on, but not when I'm around. The beat goes on, will you be my baby now. The good die young in the jungles all around. I'm ten feet long and I'm not your Lady now. I'm Kid King Kong and I don't mean maybe. What a Monkey see, donkey don't. All the Zoo Music Girls they go and all the Pinheads they go and all the Preverse Cowgirls they go and all the Zoo Music Girls they go Crack my back on the roley pole again Don't come back with your sack of woe again I'm P.C. Mac and I'm on the go I got one Big Mac and a Diet Coke again The Goat pokes crack and The Beast is Whole again So whack my sack, don't make me blow again. Fishbone Town, the stink is on again. Fish Don't Drown, just float alone again Where's my crown? show me to my throne again Just got found in the Nietzsche zone again Can't stop now I'm on a roll again Monkey See, Donkey Don't She puts her red dress on, but not when I'm around. The beat goes on, will you be my baby now. The good die young in the jungles all around. I'm ten feet long and I'm not your Lady now. I'm Kid King Kong and I don't mean maybe. What a Monkey see, donkey don't. All the Zoo Music Girls they go and all The Pinheads they go and all the Seaweed Creatures they go and all the Zoo Music Girls they go

In Time, for such a long long time, I'd been down. But now I'm feelin' fine. Cloud Nine where the water tastes like wine. Your problems well none of them are mine. Snakes don't die, it's just the skin that's peeling. Please don't cry, I've lost that lovin' feeling. Been 'round, I been everywhere man. I'm old and tired, but too young to settle down. Snakes don't die, it's just the skin that's peeling. Please don't cry, I've lost that lovin' feeling. Meanwhile, I've moved across the sky in aeroplanes. But in time, it all ends in Time. Snakes don't die, it's just the skin that's peeling. Please don't cry, I've lost that lovin' feeling.

What do you say when your Love is gone? Certain things make you feel so (...) That's what you say when your Love is gone. Certain things'll make you feel so (…) And that's what you say when your Love is gone. That's what you say when your Love is strong Certain things all make you feel so (…) That's what you say when your Love is strong It wasn't you it was the Voodoo talking. It's not you, it's me. I took a wrong turn down this road I'm walking, it turned into a dead-end street. That's what you say when your Love goes wrong Certain things'll make you feel so (…) and that's what you say when your Love goes wrong. Spent my whole Life being on probation. Was I ever really here at all? Just a dry run for hibernation? No-one really cares at all. That's what you say when your Love is gone Certain things all make you feel so (…) That's what you say when your Love is gone. That's what you say when your Love is gone. Your Love is gone Your Love is gone Your Love is gone Love is gone.

Widow's Peak 04:26
We don't speak if we don't need to. So we don't speak anymore. We don't move more than we have to. So we don't get around much anymore. But when I close my eyes I picture you by my side with your head upon my shoulder whispering lullabyes. Widow's Peak is where I found you. Underneath a dirty Autumn sky Widow's Peak is where I left you in a heap, alone to die. And when I close my eyes and try and picture you by my side. Now you're laying there before me and I'm whispering your goodbyes. Widow's Peak I should have never let you go Now I can't sleep I can't speak and I can't cry. Widow's Peak is where I lost you. Widow's Peak is where I let you go. Now we don't speak cos we don't need to. So we don't speak anymore.

Alone at night I feel the world at hand Breathing in and out as by command. I fall in Love but in Love I can't stand. My heart, my lungs, my spleen don't understand. That they can fly away That they can fly away Alone at night I feel the world inside me. Close my eyes and think of snowstorms in Hawaii. She's all white a rosebud smashed inside me. Her face, her hands, her heart all history behind me. They can fly away yeah they can fly away. They say you have the strongest hold with open hands but I just can't understand why everything I try to keep just flies away Fly away fly away Fly away Lie awake

Misty Light 03:47
Misty light in silent faces, a memory of you, and your laugh I loved at the start. But in the end the circumstances that led me to you, were the ones that would tear us apart. In the moment your eyes open and in that moment on. In the morning words are spoken that come out all wrong. Misty light in a silent place in memory of you where your shadow wont leave me alone. That delightful smile upon your face that bled me from you with a whispered prayer to your bones. In the moment your eyes opened and in that moment on. In the morning words are spoken that come out all wrong.

It feels like a hundred million miles away, it could be a hundred million more. Not one among us knows for certain, or just how the curtain falls. But when I close my eyes all that I can see is You In that ineffable moment when you leave and you feel your body melt, be sure that in that very moment, you'll know exactly how it felt. And then I close my eyes and all that I can see is You. When I look up here in the light, dancing with Invisible You. Up there in the light Invisible You so sure of yourself and just what to do. A click of your heels, and heads will drop. All-Knowing and feeling just when to stop.
