"Love & Desperation" as written by and Jeffrey Lee Pierce....
(The Mexican hustler: "Hey Meester!...Hey Blondie Boy!")

The night has windows that cannot sleep
I don't like the monsters that you keep
Don't play "Baby Mary" 'cause I am not a kid
Don't you go and push me like your hammer did,

For you,

Love and Desperation

I am blue as you pull off your skin
I can read in flesh everywhere you've been
That's why we bother to know each other so well
That's why I bother to live in hell with you

Love and Desperation

This is love, it's dangerous
There's whole lots of things in my head
This love, that's filling me
When you are there

Love and Desperation

Somebody hurts you, so you hurt me
So I hurt somebody else, who I have never seen
Who hurts somebody else, why on down the road
Who hurts somebody else who goes on home

With you,

Love and Desperation

This is love and dangerous
There's whole lots of things in my head
This is love, it's spilling me,
When you are here

Love and Desperation
You're poking knowingly, slipping numbers on the wall
About the price of diamonds that sparkle when you call
About the price of breathing that can not hurt you at all
About the fools in schools, who could slip to fall

For you,

It's Love and Desperation

This is love and dangerous
There's whole lots of things in my head
This is love that's filling me
When you aren't here

It's Love and Desperation
Can't sleep
Your midnight children
Do the midnight creep
With Love and Desperation

(Japanese hustler: Oi! Kochini koi!)
