No Good Can Come of This

No good can come of this
The squirrels have their bliss
Their votes to take the piss
No good can come of this

This is a slippery slope
Illusions pass for hope
And life becomes a trope
It all becomes a trope

I never promised you a rose garden

[repeat both verses, but with swapped inner lines in verse 1]

Where do we go from here?
It's everything we fear
Take heed -- the end is near!
Where do we go from here?

We're alive and arrived to say nothing great, there's lots of hate - but can we all just wait - take the bait, prep the hate....
but no! There's a choice, acting out without poise, bring the noise - ahh clear the slate - are we too late = is this to be our fate? oh no...
we're singing out, scream and shouting to all everyone, everywhere - under the sun - and you'll be there
in the Place - it's all chase and mace - tensions between race - such a total disgrace.... I'm looking you in your face....

What if we looked at your faces?
Woudl we see ourselves?

No Good Can Come From This
...

Angry space between race and faith, colour of skin, - the dollar reigns and at the core resides hate...
It's a terrible a state
But a chance remains that we can change, use our brains, ease the pain, break the chains that bind us, hold us back
Make No mistake We share this planet the under the sun, people shouldn't have to run - from each others gun,
we all bleed red and we all need beds, we're all one, we're all one ,we're all one... don't hate...

Every night when I go to bed I dream of you, of what you said
I remember our first kiss And I long for you and that taste I miss
I just wish I could get you off my mind
I just wish I could get you off my mind

I get up and pour a drink, try not to dream, try not to think
But nothing stops these thoughts of you, I feel the lust as I'm consumed
I just wish I could get you off my mind
I just wish I could get you off my mind

No good can come from this anxiety, insanity
No good can come from this psychopathy, just set me free
No good can come

Now I see it, now it's clear, What I must do to end this fear
I get the stone, I get the knife, as I prepare to end my life
I know how I can get you off my mind
I know how I can get you....

I beat my head upon the wall
I beg of you once and for all
Please just take this grinding stone away

No good can come from this anxiety, insanity
No good can come from this psychopathy, just set me free
No good can come

No Good Can Come Of This by No Orchids

The longer the night, the easier the lie
The mind plays tricks, dreams up alibis
And the shame will come with the rising sun
But the moment is now and you need someone

No good can come of this
This broken vow
Past the point of no return
There's no way out

With every kiss comes a regret
And with every touch, a little death
I'm burnt by desire and drowned in need
My will is lost when you look at me

No good can come of this
This broken vow
Past the point of no return
There's no way out

If the truth comes out, hearts will break
Is the passion worth the risks we take
The beat of your heart (is) my only sound
All hell breaks loose, I need you now

No good can come of this
This broken vow
Past the point of no return
There's no way out

If you’d taken my advice then youd be
knitting scarves or macrame,
lacework, latchhook or crochet
or somewhere watching birds

Or maybe take up model rockets,
model trains or model cars
Instead of playing skanky bars
with all those music nerds

But now you’re not collecting stamps
You play guitars in skanky bars
And drag around your amps

And now instead of basket weaving,
You’re packing up your music gear and leaving.

No good
Can come from
Song Fight Live

If you’d taken my advice then you’d be
in some hallway sweeping floors,
flipping bugers, parking cars,
bartending in some dive

That’s honest work for honest pay
with maybe somewhat less cache
than putting this old man to shame by
playing Song Fight Live

And how I miss the heart you took
I see your bandname haunting me
‘most everywhere I look

And now instead of trying to solve them,
You’re singing songs about our many problems.

No good
Can come from
Song Fight Live

When you go to play I hope that you’ll remember me
And you won’t let me fade away like some weak memory
Sure it might seem like those folks are just like family
But last Fight you got just 3 votes, and 2 of them were me.

No good
Can come from
Song Fight Live.
