Mojo Pin
Cowritten by Jeff Buckley/Gary Lucas
Unreleased
Lyrics:
Well i'm lying in my bed
The blanket is warm
This body will never be safe from harm
Still feel your hair, black ribbons of coal
Touch my skin to keep me whole

If only you'd come back to me
If you laid at my side
I wouldn't need no Mojo Pin to keep me satisfied

Don't wanna weep for you, I don't wanna know
I'm blind and tortured, the white horses flow
The memories fire, the rhythms fall slow
Black beauty I love you so

Precious, precious silver and gold and pearls in oyster's flesh
Drop down we two to serve and pray to love
Born again from the rhythm screaming down from heaven
Ageless, ageless
I'm there in your arms

Don't wanna weep for you, I don't wanna know
I'm blind and tortured, the white horses flow
The memories fire, the rhythms fall slow
Black beauty I love you so
So, so...

The welts of your scorn, my love, give me more
Send whips of opinion down my back, give me more
Well it's you I've waited my life to see
It's you I've searched so hard for...

Don't wanna weep for you, I don't wanna know
I'm blind and tortured, the white horses flow
The memories fire, the rhythms fall slow
Black beauty I love you so
So, black black black black beauty...
Notes:
Originally written with Gary Lucas for their collaborative album 'Songs to No One', under the name of 'Gods and Monsters'. Gary wrote the guitar parts, and also played them on Grace.

'This is a song about obsession. Sometimes if somebody you feel you need... the whole universe tells you you have to have her, you start watching her TV-shows all night, you start buying her the things she needs, you start drinking her drinks, you start smoking her bad cigarettes, you start picking up her nuances in her voice, you sleep in safe sometimes the least dangerous thing.. this is called Mojo Pin.' -- Jeff Buckley (Astoria, London, UK, 1995-01-18)
