      About "Be Safe"

      Lyrics for The Cribs - "Be Safe"

      One of those fucking, awful black days
      When nothing is pleasing and everything that happens
      Is an excuse for anger
      An outlet for emotions stockpiled, an arsenal, an armor

      These are the days when I hate the world
      Hate the rich, hate the happy
      Hate the complacent, the TV watchers
      Beer drinkers, the satisfied ones

      Because I know I can be all of those little hateful things
      And then I hate myself for realizing that
      There's no preventative, directive or safe approach for living
      We each know our own fate

      We know from our youth, how to be treated
      How we'll be received, how we shall end
      These things don't change

      You can change your clothes
      Change your hairstyle, your friends, cities, continents
      But sooner or later your own self will always catch up
      Always it waits in the wings

      Ideas swirl but don't stick
      They appear but then run off like the rain on the windshield

      One of those rainy day car rides, my head implodes
      The atmosphere in this car, a mirror of my skull
      Wet, damp, windows dripping and misted with cold
      Walls of grey, nothing good on the radio, not a thought in my head

      I know a place we can go and I'm falling
      Love so hard that you wish you were ten

      Lets take life and slow it down incredibly slow
      Frame by frame
      With two minutes that take ten years to live out
      Yeah, let's do that

      Telephone poles like praying mantis against the sky
      Metal arms outstretched
      So much land traveled, so little sense made of it
      It doesn't mean a thing, all this land laid out behind us

      I'd like to take off into these woods and get good and lost for a while
      I'm disgusted with petty concerns
      Parking tickets, breakfast specials
      Does someone just have to carry this weight?

      Abstract typography, methane covenant
      Linear gospel, Nashville sales lady, stocky emissary
      Torturous lice, mad Elizabeth

      Chemotherapy bullshit

      The light within you shines like a diamond mine
      Like an unarmed walrus, like a dead man face down on the highway
      Like a skunk, eating it's own tail
      Steam turbine, frog farm

      Two full closets burst open in disarray, soap bubbles in the sun
      Hospital death bed, red convertible, shopping list, blow job
      Deaths head, devils dancing, bleached white buildings, memories
      Movements, the movie, unfeeling, unreeling, about to begin

      I know a place we can go and I'm falling
      Love so hard that you wish you were ten

      I've seen your hallway, you're a darn call away
      I've hear your stairs creak, I can fix my mind on your yes
      And your no, I'll film your face today in the sparkling canals
      All red, yellow, blue, green brilliance and silver Dutch reflection

      Racing thoughts, racing thoughts, all too real
      You're moving so fast now, I can't hold your image
      This image I have of your face by the window
      Me standing beside you, arm on your shoulder
      A catalog of images, flashing glimpses then gone again

      Until to the posters soak in me, every clear afternoon now
      I'll think of you, up in the air, twisting your heel
      Your knees up around me, my face in your hair
      You scream so well, your smile so loud, it still rings in my ears

      I know a place we can go and I'm falling
      Love so hard that you wish you were ten

      Imitation, distant, tired of longing, clean white teeth
      Stay the course, hold the wheel, steer on to freedom
      Open all the boxes, open all the boxes
      Open all the boxes, open all the boxes

      Times Square Midday, newspaper buildings
      News headlines going around, you watch as they go
      And hope there's some good ones, those tree shadows in the park
      They're all whispering, shake some leaves

      Around six p.m., shadows across the cobblestones
      Girl in front of bathroom mirror, she slowly and carefully
      Paints her face green and mask like
      Like my cheese, portrait with green stripe

      Long shot through apartment window
      A monologue on top but no girl in shot
      The light within me shines like a diamond mine

      Like an unarmed walrus
      Like a dead man face down on the highway
      Like a snake eating its own tail
      A steam turbine, frog farm

      Two full closets burst open in disarray, soap bubbles in the sun
      Hospital death bed, red convertible, shopping list, blow job
      Deaths head, devils dancing, bleached white buildings, memories
      Movements, the movie, unreeling, about to begin

      Oh, great by me
      Yeah? Mine were alright, wasn't my best one but who cares?
      That's the spirit
