Who Are We anyway?

Who Are We kidding?

What would we see if we saw ourselves

In Jesus’ eyes?

Paisley Yankolovich
From the 2013 CD, TYPHOID MARY

Lyrics

 

When I walk through that door

Instead of saying, “Hi”

I say those nasty things

Guaranteed to make you cry

And I don’t know why

 

Not helping the situation

Instead you try to make it worse

Adding to the aggravation

You begin to fuss and curse

And you don’t know why

 

(Chorus)

Then we’re fighting, yelling and screaming

With all the mean games that we play

If only we could turn to each other and say

“Hey you’re Pretty OK”

 

No matter where we are

We always seem to manage

To do those little things

That cause the greatest damage

And wonder why

 

Will we go on forever

Hurting one another?

Wouldn’t it be so much better?

Loving one another?

(Chorus)

 

You’re my only friend

Should I go away?

Maybe we fight

So we can make up

Maybe we fight

So we don’t break up

Then it’s ok

 

Hey you’re Pretty OK

Lyrics

 

Hey Zit Face at the A&P

Pumping gas what do you see?

Would you put a yellow star on me?

My perfect, pretty skin is clear

My perfect, pretty skin, you hear?

Is there acne in your ear?

Oh, Zit Face can you hear me?

 

(Chorus)

Snap, crackle, pop

Zit Face

High school nightmare

No prom date

I’m sure that’s why the doctor slapped your mother

I’m sure that’s why the doctor slapped your mom

 

Hey Zit Face on the picket line?

They cut my dick for inclusion

Can’t be buried ‘cause of tattoos

No tell what does that mean?

Tell me what does that bring?

Does Patti Smith know anything?

Oh, Zit Face can you hear me?

(Chorus)

 

Hey Zit Face, now you’re on TV

Lyrics

 

The fire is missing

The passion is gone

The asses we’re kissing

Are in on the con

 

No reason

To believe in anything

No season

For the song that we sing

 

The poison is swallowed

The insect is run

Defecation followed

All was undone

 

It’s pointless

To try to go home

We’re homeless

And we’re all alone

 

(Chorus)

Where Are The Heroes?

Where are the pioneers?

 

The fire is consuming

Taking all that we know

The babies are booming

Into monsters they grow

 

No party

Unless you’re on the list

You’re departing

And you won’t be missed

 

The poison is sweet

Another victimless crime

It’s infected our meat

And wasted our time

 

It’s pointless

To reach for your gun

You’re jointless

And the devil has won

(Chorus)

Lyrics

 

Who’s still crucifying?

I thought that work was already done

Yet a part of me is dying

I sleep and my Hands & Feet go numb

 

It’s no wonder that I carry this cross

I’ve a long, long way to go

My Hands & Feet wanna see me lost

The Bible tells me so

 

Bitter & sweet, Hands & Feet

Wicked and sublime

Sin indiscreet, Hands & Feet

Trip me up every time

 

Hand in the fire

On purpose my flesh seeks to find

Foot in the mouth

Pluck my eyes out and make me blind

 

It’s like a drug taking over my life

There’s a fire in my soul

Bare feet meet hand holding knife

My mind’s out of control

 

Take to the street, Hands & Feet

Commit another crime

Your sweat tastes sweet, Hands & Feet

I’m running out of time

 

Who’s still crucifying?

I thought this work was already done

Lyrics

 

(Chorus)

Mary Ann’s Faithfull

Oh yeah

 

I knew a guy named Danny

Changed his name at 23

Got tired of fingers probing places

No one could see

 

Sure it had stopped

Years ago, but you see

You can never discount

The power of memory

(Chorus)

 

I knew a guy named Sean

Became a song at 23

Disappeared like a guy named Mark

In 2003

 

Like zeros in the middle

Of the numbers two and three

Grab a gun, go back to high school

God is telling me

(Chorus)

 

I knew a guy named Wayne

He wore women’s clothes

Became a girl named Jayne

Stuffed powder up her nose

 

Powder doughnuts everywhere

Sugar in her hair

He played a mean guitar

And if you see her, give her my number

Lyrics

 

Step out of the water

Fogged up mirror

Wiped by hand

Smudges, blotches yet

 

I can see clearly now

Best not to look

Run the hot water

Mirror fogged up again but I can’t hide it

 

Clarity is overrated

I pray for some deception

 

A day doesn’t go by when I don’t dream

Of being Young & Beautiful

But then I realize that even when I was young

I wasn’t all that young or beautiful

Not young

Or beautiful

 

Blasting the radio

Talk shows, Muzak

Never me

Wanting, waiting for

 

I can see clearly now

Dirty elbows

Street smells all over

Bathe all I want but I can’t hide it

 

Purity is overrated

And subject to perception

 

A night doesn’t do by when I don’t dream

Of waking Young & Beautiful

There’s a little boy inside my dreams

That seems so sad

So lost and so Young & Beautiful

So young

And beautiful

Lyrics

 

A gospel of hate had to be written

It was decreed before my birth

It’s why I climbed the mountain

It’s why I came to Earth

 

Whatcha gonna do

When I split your soul in two?

 

A ramshackle old prophet

In the skin of a nubile child

A racketeer raking up the profit

A snake oil salesman gone wild

 

Who you gonna be

When there’s no room left in me?

 

(Chorus)

I’m Typhoid Mary

Spreading my virus across the land

When history book are written

They’ll say it was with my own hand

 

I’m Typhoid Mary

My disease will eat your flesh

Cut you open with the smallest words

Don’t worry this is just a test

 

Don’t worry

Be happy

This is just a test

 

A gospel of love had to be forgotten

For my existence to occur

So easy for me to cause you lather

To get under your fur

 

Whatcha gonna do

When I split your soul in two?

 

A perfect carnal possession

For an achy breaky soul

When I become your obsession

So easy to take control

 

Who you gonna be

When there’s no room left in me?

(Chorus)

 

You allowed me to erase

Pharaoh, Hitler, Judas, Manson

Everyone you went to high school with

Everyone you said you’d never be like

You’ve become

 

Typhoid Mary

We’re all Typhoid Mary

 

Jesus loves you

But then again

So do I

Lyrics

 

There will come a day

Afraid now don’t you be

Your hopes may disappear

And the sky may fall

 

Yeah the sky falls hard

And the air blows ultra-dry

But you feel so unafraid

‘Cause I’m there for you

 

(Chorus)

I’ll never let anything bad happen to you

Trust Me

I’ll never let anything bad happen to you

 

A shoulder for your tears

And a handbag for your soul

And a hand to hold yours in

And a heartbeat

 

Let our hearts now beat in time

To the rhythm of the band

And you feel so unattached

‘Cause I’m there for you

(Chorus)

Lyrics

 

I saw myself driving by

I was headed down the highway

In this one-highway town

I didn’t turn to wave

I simply ignored me

 

I saw myself on television

Yes, on some reality show

The volume was turned down

“Cause what I was saying

Wasn’t all that important

So, I simply ignored me.

 

There are some places I hope I never see me

 

(Chorus)

Who Are We anyway?

Who Are We kidding?

What would we see if we saw ourselves

In Jesus’ eyes?

 

I saw myself in someone’s vision

Actually it was a nightmare

I was their worst nightmare

Because they were becoming just like me

But I woke up screaming

And they felt so much better

And simply ignored me

 

I saw myself in a hospital

Laying in a soiled bed of my own making

It still felt wrong

I asked, “Where is my family?”

“Where are my friends?”

“Why are you ignoring me?”

 

I guess, there are some places I would never see you

(Chorus)

Story

A view of the world way after and just before Christ. I barely performed this piece. I'm glad the record has found a life via downloads on the Internet. It's very close to my heart.

Lyrics

TYPHOID MARY

c/p 2013

 

Released: September 22, 2013

Composed, Performed, and Produced By Paisley Yankolovich

 

CD Art: Paisley Yankolovich

Recorded by Don Maloney in Surprise, AZ

 

TYPHOID MARY is set in the time of the Great Tribulation. and The title song, a show tune of sorts, introduces the Antichrist and explains how the world is ripe for his pickings.

The entire record is a series of events and revelations on a very human level from the perspective of people who have no God. It's intentionally hopeless except for brief moments of the human spirit doing its very best to comfort the un-comfortable, as in the song, TRUST ME.

This may be my most God-less record to date.
