BEBE MARIE

[Jarboe]
it’s okay to be afraid
(i know i am)
in the reflection we have made
we’re alone-
me and my bébé marie
bébé marie is looking at me
in her eye is a tear
for all to see lovely, bébé marie
bébé, so dear
behind the glass in the briar patch
for eternity
in your sadness you are so lovely
bébé marie
run away little bébé
bébé can’t run away
come to play, little bébé
bébé cannot play.

LIQUID BEBE PSYCHEDELIA

[Jarboe]
give you a kiss bébé
upon your face where it
will grow to bliss
just you and I marie
we’ll never die bébé
bébé bébé marie…

we’re going so fast though
it feels slow
down to where the milk’s all a-glow
down to where the blood’s gonna blow
ka ka ka ka ka ka ka
ka ka ka ka .. ..
a belly full of fantaseeds
a belly full of fantaseeds

L.S.B.

[Jarboe]
so you bought it all

what they told you
what you had to be
so you bought it all

something other

than what you were
suddenly

you bought it all
you bought it all, L.S.B.
and me i’m still breathin’ here
touch the sky we climbed as a child
but see i won’t be stayin’ dear
‘cos your “dead man” doesn’t smile
he bought it all, he bought it all, L.S.B.
yeah even if they told you
its based on such a history
well they just sold you down the river
from what you meant to me
even if they told you
somebody’s truth can set you free-
i never thought i’d see this day
well the cost was great, you see
you bought it all, you bought it all
lock, stock, and barrel
you bought it all, L.S.B.

MY BRUISE

[Jarboe]
this the way to take it
and this is the way to break it
here is the heart i give you
broken apart black and blue
some people pray they fake it
some people hate they’re naked
i died today i’m having
such a good time in heaven
see the blackbirds – they are laughing
calling a name and dancing
“come fly away! We’re after
sweet cherry pie disaster”
this is the way take it
and this is the way – rape it
here is the scar i give you
so dear heart black and blue
kaw kaw kaw kaw kaw kaw’

NEWBORN CHILD

[Jarboe]
ravaged, embittered, and cynical…
with eyes that see everything…
and nothing at all… trying to keep hope alive…
she holds in her heart, she turns it inside.
i’ll give you the hope of a newborn child
to get through this trial
to get through the gate.
i’ll give you the hope of a newfound pain…
i can’t find my way to carry alone
with all of this history – its worn me to the bone.
and what is the reason still you go on…
trying to keep your hope alive
we keep in our hearts and turn inside
to give you the hope of a newborn child
try to keep reason and dreaming alive
to get through this trial,
to get through the gate,
to get through this trial,
to get through the hate.

WARM LIQUID EVENT

[Jarboe]
ooh pleasure ooh pleasure

relax and listen: all you do
is close your eyes – i’m inside you with
pleasure ooh pleasure
i can satisfy your need
open wide – i’ll plant the seed of
pleasure ooh pleasure
my pleasure is flowing through your body
you only feel pleasure in your veins
your pleasure is flowing through my body
we only feel pleasure – no more pain
let it come inside come in
come inside pleasure aah…
relax and listen: all you do
is close your eyes – i’m inside you
i can satisfy your need
just open wide – plant the seed
na na na na…
my pleasure is flowing through your body
you only feel pleasure in your veins
our pleasure is flowing through our body
we only feel pleasure in our pain.

THE WITCH

[Jarboe]
in the night i see her spinning
in my mind she’s weaving in slow delight
this night spent in madness spinning
on a wheel of sadness like a cruel slow knife
in the candlelight look see her
in this darkest night of fever (fear)
slow delight like a cruel slow knife
“will you die for me?”
she’s asking
“be my offering?”
she’s laughing
“how innocent you are, how innocent you are…”
