7/27/1993 alternate lyrics

So well I find myself whispering
Oh
To myself sometimes
When I'm on a train
Or a bus when I'm riding around the city
Looking at the faces shook me out
And I wonder why
behind these eyes we hide
Every day, every night
Don't speak to strangers
Don't speak to another
Unless he might compromise

Oh well.

My head won't leave my head alone
And I don't believe it will till I'm dead and gone
My head won't leave my head alone
N'I don't believe it will till I'm six feet
underground....

Hurry
Hurry y'self
Don't drag your feet behind you
Get what you need to do in your time
(Get it done)
And don't leave any stone unturned
On this ship
No door unopened unless you know what's behind
Oh don't
Then, venture
to the left
to the right
or run down the middle path
But I've gone and seen the path down the middle is
Running in circles
Getting nowhere
nowhere
fast

My head won't leave my head alone
I don't believe it will till I'm dead and gone
My head won't leave my head alone
No I don't believe it will till
six
feet
underground
There's a place where I'll find quiet
peace and quiet
And these lies in my head,
they leave me going,
leave me going,
leave me going.....
Late....

So I take a chance to talk to a stranger
On a bus
sitting don't know why he's sitting quiet
I mean, we're like
Four hours down this highway not a word is spoken
In bewteen us, make me lose my mind
So I say, "Hey how ya doing
Photograph of your family
Looks so nice
Like the way your hair falls back"
He said, "Man don't talk to me
Please leave me alone I'm busy
Got a lot
Got a lot on my mind"

Oh dear.

My head won't leave my head alone
N'I don't believe it will till I'm dead and gone
My head won't leave my head alone
No I don't believe it will till I'm
Lowered
Lowered
Lay
Me again
Down this quiet
Quiet
Road
An I'm late
Late again
And I don't know why
Don't know why
We can't work it out
Can't work it out...

(.....)

My head won't leave my head alone
I don't believe it will till I'm
dead
dead
and gone
My head won't leave my head alone
No I don't believe it will till I'm
Riding
Riding
Riding a lie.....
Lie
Running
Running
Late
Lie
Lie
Lie.....

Tell me when does it open
Only
when the moments pass
I should've but I could've I mean
Sometimes the courage needs something big
And the urge rise to open your mouth
Don't show it
Swallow
Swallow
Your throat
Again
Open up and screeeeeeeeeam it
Screeeeeeeeeeeeam it
Screeeeeeeeeeeam.........
Rhyme & Reason
main lyrics
Oh well oh well so here we stand
But we stand for nothing
My heart calls to me in my sleep
How can I turn to it
'Cause I'm all locked up in this
Dark place -
And I do not know
I'm as good as dead
My head aches -
Warped and tied up
I need to kill this pain

My head won't leave my head alone
And I don't believe it will
Until I'm dead and gone
My head won't leave my head alone
And I don't believe it will
Until I'm six feet under ground

How long I'm tied up
My mind in knots -
My stomach reels
In concern for what I might do or
What I've done
It's got me living in fear
Well I know these voices must
Be my soul
I've had enough
I've had enough of being alone
I've got no place to go

Six feet under
In my grave
Lying wired and shut and quiet in my grave
Leave me here
Leave it to me to waste here

So young and here I am again
Talking to myself
A T.V. blares
Oh man
Oh how I wish I didn't smoke
Or drink to reason with my head
But sometimes this thick confusion
Grows until I cannot bear it all
Needle to the vein
Needle to the vein
Take this needle from my vein my friend
I said

In my grave
Lying,
Lying, cold in my grave
The reason -
My reason
Take my head off this terror
The fearing won't come back
I can't see
My mind's all wiped clean
The needle
Make my great escape

I seem caught in time
My head leaves me behind
Body fall cold
And I see heaven
