"Say What You Mean" as written by and Sam Phillips Henry T-bone Burnett....
I'll be desperate, I'll be lonely
But I won't be ashamed
No isolation, no terror unnamed
You animated the dead to your dream
Say what you mean

Destiny's still locomotive desire
Magnets set on you and thrown into the fire
If you get branded and caught in between
Say what you mean

You'll despise and protect
You'll fool and you'll grouse
How hungry are you?
How much can you loose?

You know what I would do for you
'Til it gets too late
Just tell me straight

The secrets that you want to know
Are yours not mine
Longing may kill me
I can't keep my mind

On my destructions
My drugs and my dreams
Say what you mean
