Gregory and the Hawk

Kill the Turkey Lyrics

Kill the turkey, shoot him down,
Pluck his feathers, Make him growl,
Make burgers, kill the cow,
Slit his throat, let him bleed,
Make steaks, make burgers,
Good to eat,

Kill the beast, took our daughter,
I’ll break off,
But if you want it bad enough,
Oh if you want it bad enough,

Keep your eyes on the prize,
Keep your eyes on the prize,
Keep your eyes on the prize,
Keep your eyes on the prize,

Kiss the clever, one who said,
You made your bed,
now lie in it, Die in it,
Kiss the shit, that hit the fence,
When you went and killed,
Another man,

But if you want it bad enough,
If you want it bad enough,

Keep your eyes on the prize,
Keep your eyes on the prize
Keep your eyes on the prize
Keep your eyes on the prize

Boats And Birds

If you be my star
I’ll be your sky
you can hide underneath me and come out at night
when I turn jet black and you show off your light
I live to let you shine
I live to let you shine

but you can skyrocket away from me
and never come back if you find another galaxy
far from here with more room to fly
just leave me your stardust to remember you by

if you be my boat
I’ll be your sea
a depth of pure blue just to probe curiosity
ebbing and flowing and pushed by a breeze
I live to make you free
I live to make you free

but you can set sail to the west if you want to
and past the horizon till I can’t even see you
far from here where the beaches are wide
just leave me your wake to remember you by

if you be my star
I’ll be your sky
you can hide underneath me and come out at night
when I turn jet black and you show off your light
I live to let you shine
I live to let you shine

but you can skyrocket away from me
and never come back if you find another galaxy
far from here with more room to fly
just leave me your stardust to remember you by
stardust to remember you by

The Bolder Thing to Do

Every day trying to make up for the one before
climb three flights to tremble at the sight of your already open door
the frustration I see when I tell you I like some company
breaks my heart
how can you be so impartial?

(chorus)
and I’ve made myself the fool
who’s fallen for you
so let me down softly this time and
I wont have to come back cryin’
I’ve just made myself look bad and
you’re the one who should be feelin’ bad
it’d be better to forget you
but I don’t really want to
it’d be better to forget you
but I don’t really want to

energy spent trying to believe you’re not worth it
you don’t deserve it
but I wish you did ’cause I can’t live without this
and I’ll remember you as the second or two
artists I knew who decided to screw me over
’cause it’s the bolder thing to do

chorus X2

In Fact

Step one: light me on fire
step two: walk clean away
I wont burn long
and evidence of your done wrong will be gone
in seconds I swear
but if you got time anyway
why not watch me hurt
and nothing is sweeter than needed revenge
oh that’s right
I did nothing
and you were the mean one
in fact, you even broke my good tape deck
in fact, don’t wanna be friends

but if you got time anyway
why not watch me hurt
and nothing is sweeter than needed revenge
oh that’s right
I did nothing
and you were the mean one
in fact, you even broke my good tape deck
in fact, don’t wanna be friends

Bravo Charlie

I feel like singing sad songs all night
I feel like tuning you out
do you want to make it in to more of a fight
is this yelling what love’s all about?

(chorus)
so go on, and tear me apart
yeah just go on in straight for my chest
and maybe it’s mostly my fault
’cause if I’m the only girl you ever had
I guess I can’t be the best
can’t be the best

and I feel like falling asleep while you scream
I feel like tuning you out
do you want to stand up and make a big scene?
put the lid down, pick up the dog shit, and shut your mouth

(chorus)

and I feel like singing sad songs all night

I’m Your Puppet

I’m your puppet
I’ll learn to love it
and I’ll undress
if you need it
but please don’t need it
if you need it
I’ll scream out

weave a secret
I will sweep it
beaneath the carpet
where you’ll keep it
how weak is that?
wish I was worth it
to you

review my wishes
for fair weather
’cause I know if the clouds with rains or snows
you wont be there
how weak is that?
wish I was worth it
to you

The Point Sometimes

Get rid of the ocean
if you ever wanna see me again
our shores are separated
with or without a boat
and you know that nothing lasts forever
and depending on the weather
I’m a changer

and I know that if November had been deader
if we’d hidden a bit better
we’d be strangers

and this breeze blew in
with a glitch in the tide
disguised as storm free
begging you please to take a ride
well soften your sails and take a ride
open the wings and let her fly

and I can’t see the point sometimes
you’re a rock, I’m a gull
might be okay to stay if you could hold me
but you got no way to do so
and you know
that as the world rises
possible perch shrinks in size
and I’ll take off

and this breeze blew in
with a glitch in the tide
disguised as storm free
begging you please to take a ride
well soften your sails and take a ride
open the wings
and let her fly

and you know that nothing lasts forever
and depending on the weather
I’m a changer
I’m a changer
I’m a changer
I’m a changer

Isabelle

Now it’s just you two
in a world of poems and paintings
I guess this means I’m through
it also means I’m breaking
but Isabelle what can I do
if I’m caught in him, this man you love?
and Isabelle what can I do
if his strong hands make it hard to shove him away?

and I know it’s hard
to picture it up here
in your tobacco strewn back yard
and it is kinda tiresome to keep an eye on him
just look what he’s done so far

but Isabelle what can I do?
the last thing I need is to end up askew
and Isabelle what can I do?
the prophets make it difficult
Isabell what can I do
in the few weeks time you’re out of sight?
and Isabelle what can I do
just because it feels alright?

and the grounds already hard
where its been dug in
I’ve gone this way too many times
but the pit keeps going deeper
and I’m not turning back
so Isabelle try to understand

I know just what to say
but it’s incorrect to say it
how do I break it to him?
the death of one is staying
and all I think of now
is a way to get under and a way to get out
Isabelle what can I do
with the knife pain it’s causing you?

A Wish

I wish to feel smaller
under your sheets.
I wish for the whole truth
every time you speak.
I’m thinkin’ about how you care half as much for me
While I watch you arrive, smoke cigarettes, sleep…

And I guess it doesn’t matter what I say or what I seem
You stuck what I felt for you in the pocket of your jeans
Ignoring me the morning after
isn’t enough
and I swear I’m gonna cry.
I’m sick of tryin’ to be tough.

And my blood won’t stick
To the confines of my veins.
And your heart
Is gonna tear mine away.

And I wish to feel smaller under your hands,
though you seem satisfied as you slip mine
down your pants.
And I’m thinkin’ about how you care half as much for me
While you lift up my shirt after asking politely.

And I guess it doesn’t matter what I am or pretend to be
Cuz it’s her you’ll always love and it’s her I’ll always envy.
I want to end this now so dreams of you won’t keep me up.
But I swear I’m gonna cry.
I’m sick of tryin’ to be tough.

And my blood won’t stick
To the confines of my veins.
And your heart
Is gonna tear mine away.

And it’s hard to find
What I want
When it’s buried beneath the biggest rock.
I could pay lots of money
To help lift it with machines
But I’m not sure you’d cooperate.
Not sure you’d come clean.

And I wish to feel smaller
under your sheets.
I wish for the whole truth
every time you speak.
And I’m thinkin’ about how you care half as much for me
As I watch you arrive, smoke cigarettes, sleep.

And I guess it doesn’t matter what I say or what I seem
You stuck what I felt for you in the pocket of your jeans.
Ignoring me the morning after isn’t enough
and I swear I’m going to cry.
I’m sick of tryin’ to be tough.

Yeah, I swear I’m gonna cry.
I’m sick of tryin’ to be tough.

And my blood won’t stick
To the confines of my veins.
And your heart
Is gonna tear mine away.

Is gonna tear mine away
