Rainbow

I packed my suitcase, packed up the preacher’s disgrace.
I took my namesake, but I left him rollin’ in his grave.
I left the radio on. It was playin’ my song. Mama made me
Learn my right from wrong. So I let my colors show, I let them explode.
I found a rainbow.

I packed my suitcase, packed up the friends that I made
Onto an airplane. It was made of paper mâché.
I left the radio on. It was playin’ my song. Mama made me
Learn my right from wrong. So I let my colors show, I let them explode.
I found my rainbow.

I found a rainbow. I found some red and yellow.
Blue and green, I found the man I wanted to be.
He was livin’ in the same ole’ skin.
He was livin’ at the rainbow’s end.
He was livin’ in the same ole’ skin and bones.
I found a rainbow. I found a rainbow.
I’ve got colors on the inside. I know just how to find my light.
I’ve got to let my colors show.
I’ve got colors on the inside. I know I’m more than black and white.
I got to let my colors show.

I found a rainbow! I found a rainbow.
I found a rainbow.
I packed my suitcase, packed up the preacher’s disgrace.
I found a blank page.
Please don’t ever let your colors change.

Helium

Soldier, the cuts don’t hurt me no more.
Soldier, your armor’s made for war.
Sometimes I’m part of the machine.
Sometimes I don’t think that I can bleed.

And it’s hard sometimes letting go, I got a wounded heart
And a fractured soul. And these gunshots, they don’t bother me.
I’m leaking out my vanity.

Oh, Helium, you carry me away from this life I’ve been living
Like an actor on a stage.
And Oh…..I pulled the curtains closed. I took the higher
Road back home. I took the higher road.
I’m coming up, gotta get me some.
I’m coming up, gotta get me some,
Gotta get me some, get me some HELIUM.

Surgeon, the gloves don’t fit me no more.
Surgeon, your blade is gettin’ dull.
Sometimes, I can’t feel my heartbeat.
Sometimes, the scars won’t let me breathe.

And it’s hard sometimes letting go, I gotta wounded heart
And a fractured soul. And these gunshots, they don’t bother me.
I’m leaking out my vanity.

Oh, Helium, you carry me away from this life I’ve been living
Like an actor on a stage.
And Oh…..I pulled the curtains closed. I took the higher
Road back home. I took the higher road.
I’m coming up, gotta get me some.
I’m coming up, gotta get me some HELIUM.
Gotta get me some HELIUM.
Gotta get me some, gotta get me some, get me some HELIUM.

Hunter

Dirt road, a lonely hunter
Can’t find his doe.
She lost her antlers
And broke her bones.

He left his shotgun shells
And stones at home.
He put a buck in the back of
A pickup truck.

Take me home,
Let me go.
I don’t need no preacher man to
Save my soul.

Tie me up,
Throw your stones.
But look me in the eye before you
Lock and load,
Lock and load.

Save my soul,
And put a buck in the back of
A pickup truck.

The hunter lost his doe.
And he don’t know where to go.
And he’s lookin’ at me and my freedom speech,
And his hunger starts to grow.
And show, show me your shotgun!
If looks could kill, you got a deadly one.

And I’m tangled up in barbed wire.
Yes I’m danglin’ over your campfire.
And I got stuck, tangled up
I got stuck, in the back of
A pickup truck.

Baptized, tell me lies,
You’re so quick to criticize.
Break down, break my bones,
Break some bread with these homophobes.

Fight back, last attack,
I’m gonna get you in the sack.
And put a buck in the back of the
A pickup truck.

Take me home,
Let me go.
I don’t need no preacher man to
Save my soul.

He’s gonna soak my jeans in gasoline.
He’s gonna strike a match on my disease.
He put a buck in the back of
A pickup truck.

The hunter lost his doe.
And he don’t know where to go.
And he’s lookin’ at me and my freedom speech,
And his hunger starts to grow.

And show, show me your shotgun!
If looks could kill, you got a deadly one.
And I’m tangled up in barbed wire.
Yes I’m danglin’ over your campfire.

And I got stuck, tangled up
I got stuck, in the back of
A pickup truck.

Race Car

Wheels turnin’, engine burnin’ through the night.
Race car won’t you take me for a ride.
Solo, the actor lived his lines upon a stage.
Race car spinnin’ circles in the rain.

Blue jeans soaked in gasoline, could you
Find another cigarette for two?
Race car took me too far away from yesterday, ‘cause
Sunday came too soon.

Racing faster than a heartbeat chasin’ after
A hundred thousand miles an hour.
Tee shirts soaked under our
Blue tuxedos, when you asked
If I could take you home by ten.

Race car, I think we’re better off as friends,
But can’t we just pretend the night will never end?

Moonlight, the stars were shining bright, just like your eyes.
Pull the top back all the way to paradise.

And I saw you, I saw you long before we were ever introduced,
I saw you staring back at me from the rearview.

Blue jeans soaked in gasoline, could you
Find another cigarette for two?
Race car took me too far away from yesterday, ‘cause
Sunday came too soon.

I always thought you were the better man.
I always walked a step behind!
I saw your headlights from a million miles away,
You know your race car,
Always seemed to shine.

Racing faster than a heartbeat chasing after
A hundred thousand miles an hour.
Tee shirts soaked under our
Blue tuxedos, when you asked
If I could take you home by ten.

Race car, I think we’re better off as friends,
But can’t we just pretend the night would never end?

Aviator

Helicopter, rollercoaster.
Taxi cab, or limosine.
Pickup truck, or space ship,
Could you find me some more gasoline?

And oh, I’m searching through the years.
And oh, I’m still searching for my tears.
Always runnin’, both feet on the ground.
Now nobody’s gonna weigh me down.
Because I am flying, on a paper airplane.
To Jupiter or Mercury. No parachute could save me now,
I’m where I want to be.

I’m an Aviator singing my song.
I’m an Aviator, I got my sunglasses on.
Aviator, I’ve been silent through the years,
In the atmosphere, I’ve been in the
Atmosphere, for all these years.

New York, you look a lot like
Mexico.
All the pretty faces that
Nobody really knows.

Isn’t it all just make-up?
It’s make-up and make-believe.

And oh, I’m still searching through the years.
And oh, I’m still searching for my tears.

And all the faces, they’re so pretty.
And the camouflage, it’s melting away.
It’s so beautiful. I think it’s gonna rain.

But now I’m flying, on a paper airplane.
To Jupiter or Mercury. No parachute can save me now,
I’m where I want to be.

I’m an Aviator singing my song.
I’m an Aviator, I got my sunglasses on.
Aviator, I’ve been silent through the years,
In the atmosphere, I’ve been in the
Atmosphere, for all these years.

Sunglasses on, sunglasses on,
Sunglasses on for all these years.
Sunglasses on, sunglasses on,
Sunglasses on in the atmosphere.
Sunglasses on, sunglasses on,
Sunglasses on to hide these tears.
