"Anything But Dead" as written by and Mary Reynolds....
Glory saved the tears
She should have cried along Jamaicaway
Letting all the beauty go to waste

Fear us torn inside of you
Even when it’s always cold
Step along the cracks until they break

Poison in the desert can drip real slow
Anything that moves real fast lets go
Poison in the desert can drip real slow
Anything that moves real fast lets go

Here inside his head
Where desire takes a bow
You can save your precious skin
And live to show it off somehow
Cause anything but dead
Is all you ever really wanted now

All the kings of gossamer
Kicked the surface off the shine
Till this loveliness shall pay and pay
Tell us when it gets too much
Tell us when we’ve had enough
I can wait forever and a day

Poison in the desert can drip real slow
Anything that moves real fast lets go
Poison in the desert can drip real slow
Anything that moves real fast lets go

Here inside his head
Where desire takes a bow
You can save your precious skin
And live to show it off somehow
Cause anything but dead
Is all you ever really wanted now

Here inside his head
Where desire takes a bow
You can save your precious skin
And live to show it off somehow
Cause anything but dead
Is all you ever really wanted now
