beyond tomorrow lyrics: if stan ridgway sang it, it's here

notes on the lyrics
A lot of Stan's lyrics are formatted in the liner notes as straight prose, rather than in the more traditional poetic form. Perhaps Stan likes it, perhaps you do, but frankly I don't. I like to read the lyrics along with the music, and lyrics formatted traditionally are easier to read. Form follows function, so I've elected to reformat the lyrics in traditional form.

There are some spots that I couldn't make out; they have been formatted in italics and surrounded by chevrons, like this example from Time Wave Zero:

Monkey man knows « what he's shuckin »
If you know what he's sayin', please email me. Thanks.
