Maybe it's because I'm only starting

That I think it won't take too long

Maybe it's because I can see you laughing

That I think you've got it wrong

Maybe I could be like Robin Hood

Like and outlaw dressed all in green

Someone said what's he gonna turn out like

And someone else said never mind

Well I was big and bold and more than twice as old

As all the cats I'd ever seen

I grew my hair and bought a suit

Of shiny white or was it cream

I shook and shivered danced and quivered

And stood on a mountain top

No one came from miles around and said

Man your music is really hot

 

Well I knew what they meant because I was a freak

My throat was tired and worn

My pretty face just looked out of place

As they poured on the scorn

I wrote on yellow paper from a man who was the king

He said my boy we'll have some crazy scenes

There weren't any scenes at all like he was talkin' about

He must've been the king of queens

Well I could write a million songs about the things I've done

But I could never sing them so they'd never get sung

There's a law for the rich and one for the poor and there's another one for singers

 

It's die young and live much longer

Spend your money and sit and wonder

No one came for miles around

And said man your music is really funky

 

I believe that I must tell the truth

And say things as they really are

But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth

Could I ever be a star

Nobody knows who's real and who's fakin'

Everyone's shouting out loud

It's only the glitter and shine that gets through

Where's my Robin Hood outfit

Well I've come and I've gone before you wink an eye

No one ever cared enough to say goodbye

The money's good and the time you have

Fun and games galore

But you spend your money and lie in bed forgotten

And you wonder what you did it for

No one came from miles around

And said man who's he?

Tell me what you think I've been doing wrong

I'm too high to hear what you say

Maybe write a letter if it takes too long

I won't come down today

 

I found a pretty girl who loves me true

I don't ask why, and she won't say

I'm about ten miles over you

I won't come down today

 

I just bought a balloon

Me and the girl are taking a ride

Float just under the moon

Dumping your things over the side

 

If you're gonna leave, will you let me know

I won't try to make you stay

Gonna throw a party on the day you go

I won't come down today

 

I just bought a balloon

Me and the girl are taking a ride

Float just under the moon

Dumping your things over the side

 

I might be coming home, but I don't know when

I'm up so high, I might float away

I don't ever want to come down again

I won't come down today

He rocked his way through yesterday,

lord he thought he had a chance
He played guitar and wrote some tunes,

of love and romance

 

He did his share of travelin',

like a dog without a home
A fugitive who would rather give,

a star that never shone

 

Isn't it a pity,

isn't it a shame
No one ever warned the boy
Rock n' roll is a vicious game, oh yeah

 

He said he wouldn't get led around,

or caught up in the games
Or end up in a gallery,

of faces with no names

 

And rock 'n' roll was in his soul,

and music was a friend
He recorded a song that made us sing along,

and he was on the road again

 

Isn't it a pity,

isn't it a shame
No one ever warned the boy
Rock n' roll is a vicious game,

oh oh, oh yeah, oh oh

 

Stage fright, ooh,

and long black limousines
He's pushing himself a way too hard,

or so it seems

 

He opened up his heart to us,

he gave us what he could
We sympathized and harmonized,

he made us all feel good

 

But it's funny how those things can change,

and time can pass us by
Songs that moved us so easily,

no longer make us cry

 

Now isn't it a pity,

isn't it a shame
No one ever warned the boy
Rock n' roll is a vicious game,

oh oh, oh

 

Oh yeah, oh, oh oh oh,

oh, yeah, yeah yeah yeah
My my my, rock 'n roll is a vicious game, yeah
Rock 'n' roll, rock 'n' roll, yeah, yeah, yeah, ooh

They're kissing babies and telling me lies
They're taking over my television
They're making noises that sound so wise
Trying to influence my decision
Rituals old fashioned
With speeches so proud and passionate
Hope reigns, fears rule
I may be crazy but I'm not such a fool
No such fool

 

Red day on blue street
And this world promises everything
Old shoes on new feet again
Nothing changes
Red day on blue street

 

Here comes a man with a face so sincere
Here comes another with power on his mind
Both with a want for a word in my ear
Both with a message of hope for my kind
Heads of this nation
Fight lies with misinformation and
This gives, that takes
One or the other for the difference it makes
None at all

 

Red day on blue street
And this world promises everything
Old shoes on new feet again
Nothing changes
Red day on blue street

 

We are the chosen ones
You have asked us to serve you
We deserve you
It's going the way that we said it would
We say that you never had it so good
No one's a loser who plays our game
The difference is clear, we just changed our name
Nobody knows that it's just the same
Red day on blue street
Or how about
Blue day on red street
It doesn't matter, it really doesn't
It doesn't matter, it really doesn't

 

Somebody showing me the magical way
Somebody waving the key to my chains
They must believe I was born yesterday
They must believe I've got sand for my brains
Members historical
Woo me with words rhetorical
Blood runs, mud flies
Can't see a thing for the wool in my eyes
In my eyes

 

Red day on blue street
And this world promises everything
Old shoes on new feet again
Nothing changes
Red day on blue street
This world promises everything
Old shoes on new feet again
Nothing changes
Red day on blue street

Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
'Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence

"Fools", said I, "You do not know
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you"
But my words, like silent raindrops fell
And echoed
In the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said, "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls"
And whispered in the sounds of silence

One revolution turning around, grace under pressure, but don't make a sound
Our house is divided, but together we stand
One constitution goin' hand to hand

Here's to you, red and yellow, black and white
Once the daylight turned to night
We're not as bold as we may seem, we're looking for the American dream

Yes, American dream

Some people hiding, they do underground, sex as an issue in every dead town
Trading in secrets and dealing in lies
Living is easy when you close your eyes

Here's to you, red and yellow, black and white
Join the daylight, return to night
We're not as bold as we may seem, we're looking for the American dream

Some people hiding, they do underground, sex as an issue in every dead town
Trading in secrets and dealing in lies
Living is easy when you close your eyes - looking for the American dream, yeah

Looking for the American dream, the American dream
And we're not as bold as we may seem, American dream
We're looking for the American dream...

Oh, flew in from Miami Beach B.O.A.C.

Didn't get to bed last night

On the way the paper bag was on my knee

Man I had a dreadful flight

I'm back in the U.S.S.R.

You don't know how lucky you are boy

Back in the U.S.S.R. (Yeah)

 

Been away so long I hardly knew the place

Gee it's good to be back home

Leave it till tomorrow to unpack my case

Honey disconnect the phone

I'm back in the U.S.S.R.

You don't know how lucky you are boy

Back in the U.S.

Back in the U.S.

Back in the U.S.S.R.

 

Well the Ukraine girls really knock me out

They leave the West behind

And Moscow girls make me sing and shout

That Georgia's always on my mind

 

Aw come on !

Ho yeah !

Ho yeah !

Ho ho yeah !

Yeah yeah !

 

Yeah I'm back in the U.S.S.R.

You don't know how lucky you are boys

Back in the U.S.S.R.

 

Well the Ukraine girls really knock me out

They leave the West behind

And Moscow girls make me sing and shout

That Georgia's always on my mind

 

Oh, show me around your snow-peaked mountains way down south

Take me to your daddy's farm

Let me hear your balalaika's ringing out

Come and keep your comrade warm

I'm back in the U.S.S.R.

Hey you don't know how lucky you are boys

Back in the U.S.S.R.

 

Oh let me tell you, honey

Hey, I'm back !

I'm back in the U.S.S.R.

Yes, I'm free!

Yeah, back in the U.S.S.R.

 

Ha ha

The people's flag is deepest red

It shrouded oft our martyred dead

And ere their limbs grew stiff and cold

Their hearts' blood dyed to every fold

 

Then raise the scarlet standard high

Beneath it's folds we'll live and die

Though cowards flinch and traitors sneer

We'll keep the red flag flying here

 

It waved above our infant might

When all ahead seemed dark as night

It witnessed many a deed and vow

We must not change it's colour now

 


Then raise the scarlet standard high

Beneath it's folds we'll live and die

Though cowards flinch and traitors sneer

We'll keep the red flag flying here

 


It well recalls the triumphs past

It gives the hope of peace at last

The banner bright, the symbol plain

Of human right and human gain

 


Then raise the scarlet standard high

Beneath it's folds we'll live and die

Though cowards flinch and traitors sneer

We'll keep the red flag flying here

 


It suits today the meek and base

Whose minds are fixed on pelf and place

To cringe beneath the rich man's frown

And haul that sacred emblem down

 


Then raise the scarlet standard high

Beneath it's folds we'll live and die

Though cowards flinch and traitors sneer

We'll keep the red flag flying here

 


With heads uncovered swear we all

To bare it onward till we fall

Come dungeons dark or gallows grim

This song shall be our parting hymn

 


Then raise the scarlet standard high

Beneath it's folds we'll live and die

Though cowards flinch and traitors sneer

We'll keep the red flag flying here

Allons enfants de la patrie,
Le jour de gloire est arrivé !
Contre nous de la tyrannie
L'etendard sanglant est levé ! (bis)
Entendez-vous dans les campagnes,
Mugir ces féroces soldats ?
Ils viennent jusque dans nos bras
Égorger nos fils, nos compagnes !
 

Aux armes, citoyens !
Formez vos bataillons !
Marchons! Marchons !
Qu'un sang impur
Abreuve nos  s
illons !

 

 2

Amour sacré de la patrie,
Conduis, soutiens nos bras vengeurs !
Liberté, Liberté cherie,
Combats avec tes défenseurs ! (bis)
Sous nos drapeaux, que la victoire
Accoure à tes mâles accents !
Que tes ennemis expirants
Voient ton triomphe et notre gloire !2

 

Aux armes, citoyens !
Formez vos bataillons !
Marchons! Marchons !
Qu'un sang impur
Abreuve nos  s
illons !

 

 

Nous entrerons dans la carrière
Quand nos aînés n'y seront plus;
Nous y trouverons leur poussière
Et la trace de leurs vertus.
Bien moins jaloux de leur survivre
Que de partager leur cercueil,
Nous aurons le sublime orgueil
De les venger ou de les suivre !

 

Aux armes, citoyens !
Formez vos bataillons !
Marchons! Marchons !
Qu'un sang impur
Abreuve nos  s
illons !

I was thumbin' through the want ads in the Shelby County Tribune

When this classified advertisement caught my eye

It said, "Take immediate delivery on this '57 Chevrolet half-ton pickup truck

Will sell or swap for a Hide-a-bed and thirty-five bucks

Call 1-4-0 ring two and ask for Bob"

 

Well I called Bob up on the telephone

He says, "Hello, this is Bob speaking"

I says, "Is this here the Bob's got the pickup truck for sale?"

He says, "Yeah", I says, "Where are you"

He says "Fourteen east on County 12

Turn right on the one-lane gravel road,

You can park in the yard, beware of the dog

Wipe your feet off, knock three times, and bring your billfold"

 

Well, I tooled on east on County 12

Turned right on the one-lane gravel road

And I parked in the yard, and a German Shepherd come out and grabbed onto my leg

Then I knocked three times and wiped my feet

The dog let go and the screen door opened

And then Bob come out and says, "What do you want?"

I says, "I've come to see your truck"

He says, "Follow me

Come on, Frank"

The dog's name is Frank

 

Well, we all went past the chicken house

Through the hog pen and down to the tractor shed

And then wound up in back of the barn in a field of cow pies

And sitting right there in a pool of grease was a half-ton Chevy pickup truck

With a 1960 license plate, a bumper sticker that says "Vote for Dick"

And a Brillo box full of rusty parts

And Bob says, "What do you think?"

 

Well, I kicked the tires and then got in the seat and sat on a petrified apple core

And found a bunch of field mice living in the glove compartment

He says, "The shaft is bent and the rear end leaks,you can fix it quick with an oily rag

Use a nail to start her, I lost the key, don't pay no mind to that whirring sound

She'll use a little oil, but outside of that, she's cherry"

 

I says, "What'll it take?", he says, "What've you got?"

I says, "Twenty-eight dollars and fifteen cents"

He says, "You got a deal, sign here, I'll go get the title and can full of gas"

I put the nail in the slot and fired her up

And she coughed and belched up a bunch of smoke

And I backed her right through the hog pen into the yard

 

Well, Frank jumped in and bit my leg and I beat him off with a crowbar

He jumped on out and the door fell off and the left front tire went flat

I jacked it up and patched the tube, and Frank tore a piece of my shirt off

Then Bob come out and called him of and says, "You'd better get on out of here"

 

I went left on the one-lane gravel road, went fourteen west on County 12

Took two full quarts of 40-weight oil just to get her to the Conoco station

And I pulled up the regular pump and then Harold Sikes and his kid come out

He says, "I've seen better stuff at a junkyard, where'd you ever get that truck?"

 

I says, "That's a long story, Harold

See, I was thumbin' through the want ads in the Shelby County Tribune

When this classified advertisement caught my eye...."

Well, it's only gonna be about an hour, friend, 'til they dam your favorite river

So you can water-ski just one more reservoir

And them supersonic ships are gonna take you across a sea of pavement

To one more faceless brickyard on the shore

 

Yeah, it's only gonna be about an hour or so 'til they rip off all your mountains, boy,

And that one last tired old eagle bites the sand

And all that high and mighty scenery's gonna be leveled to the ground, boy, 

By a bunch of them mindless strip mines on the land

 

So listen well, my brothers, when you hear the night wind sigh

And you see the wild goose flying though the gray, polluted sky

There won't be no country music, there won't be no rock and roll

'Cause when the take away our country, they'll take away our soul

 

Well, it's only gonna take about a minute or so 'til the junkyards fill the prairies, boy,

And them smokin' yellow grass fires start to burn

And the warnings on them beer cans're gonna be buried in them landfills

No deposit, no sad songs, and no return

 

Yeah, it's only gonna take about a minute or so 'til the factories block the sun out

And you're gonna have to turn your lights on just to see

And them lights are gonna be neon saying "Fly our jets to paradise"

And the whole damn world is gonna be made of styrene

 

So listen well, my brothers, when you hear the night wind sigh

And you see the wild goose flying though the gray, polluted sky

There won't be no country music, there won't be no rock and roll

'Cause when the take away our country, they'll take away our soul

 

Yeah, it's only gonna be about a second, boy, 'til they take away all of this country

And they'll tell you not to listen to this here song

And that far-off sound of freedom is gonna be an echo from the past

And the final tune is gonna be sad and long

 

Yeah, it's only gonna be about an eye-blink, boy, 'til they pull out the wool to blind us

So we just can't read all the messages on the wall

But the only words that matter ought'a be scribbled all over them billboards

In big old black and bloody letters ten feet tall

 

There won't be no country music, there won't be no rock and roll

'Cause when the take away our country, they'll take away our soul

Been forty days since I don't know when

I just saw her with my best friend

Do you know what I mean?

Do you know, know what I mean?

 

I just saw her yesterday

I just saw her, asked her to stay

Do you know what I mean?

Lawd, Do you know what I mean?

 

Her and Bobby were steppin out

Her and Bobby didn't know I found out

Do you know what I mean?

Do you know, know what I mean?

 

So I asked her if she still cared

She didn't hear me, she just stared

Do you know what I mean?

Lawd, Do you know what I mean?

 

And then she said

Lee you haven't loved me in nearly four years

You haven't noticed that I held back my tears

And now you have, but it's really too late

Better find yourself another girl

Better find another girl

Better find uh, another place

 

She just left me yesterday

She just left me, had nothing to say

Do you know what I mean?

Oh, do you know what I mean?

 

She's a dandy, yes indeed

She's a dandy, but now she's free

Do you know what I mean?

Lawd, do you know what I mean?

 

Been forty days since I don't know when

I just saw her with my best friend

Do you know what I mean?

Lawd, do you know what I mean?

 

I just saw her yesterday

I just saw her, learn how to stay

Do you know what I mean?

Lawd, Do you know what I mean?

 

Yeah, here comes it now...

 

Hoooo, help.. me

We skipped the light fandango
Turned cartwheels cross the floor
I was feeling kinda seasick
But the crowd called out for more
The room was humming harder
As the ceiling flew away
When we called out for another drink
The waiter brought a tray

[Chorus]
And so it was that later
As the miller told his tale
That her face, at first just ghostly,
Turned a whiter shade of pale

She said, there is no reason
And the truth is plain to see.
But I wandered through my playing cards
And would not let her be
One of sixteen vestal virgins
Who were leaving for the coast
And although my eyes were open
They might have just as well've been closed

[Chorus]
And so it was that later
As the miller told his tale
That her face, at first just ghostly,
Turned a whiter shade of pale

She said, I'm home on shore leave,
Though in truth we were at sea
So I took her by the looking glass
And forced her to agree
Saying, you must be the mermaid
Who took Neptune for a ride.
But she smiled at me so sadly
That my anger straightway died

[Chorus]
And so it was that later
As the miller told his tale
That her face, at first just ghostly,
Turned a whiter shade of pale

If music be the food of love
Then laughter is its queen
And likewise if behind is in front
Then dirt in truth is clean
My mouth by then like cardboard
Seemed to slip straight through my head
So we crash-dived straightway quickly
And attacked the ocean bed

[Chorus]
And so it was that later
As the miller told his tale
That her face, at first just ghostly,
Turned a whiter shade of pale

I close my eyes

Only for a moment, and the moment's gone

All my dreams

Pass before my eyes, a curiosity

 

Dust in the wind

All they are is dust in the wind

 

Same old song

Just a drop of water in an endless sea

All we do

Crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see

 

Dust in the wind

All we are is dust in the wind

 

Now, don't hang on

Nothing lasts forever but the Earth and sky

It slips away

And all your money won't another minute buy

 

Dust in the wind

All we are is dust in the wind

Dust in the wind

Everything is dust in the wind

One more mountain

In the distance

Haze and clouds behind

Face the future

Climb the mountain

Take each step at a time

 

Martial will and testify

Leave your dark days behind

 

One last valley

Past the mountain

Get to there in time

Present, future

Deep the valley

Far as ocean is wide

 

Martial will and testify

Leave your dark days behind

High anxiety whenever you're near -

High anxiety - it's you that I fear.

My heart's afraid to fly - it's crashed before ...

But then you take my hand;

My heart starts to soar once more.

 

High anxiety ... it's always the same;

High anxiety ... it's you that I blame.

It's very clear to me I've got to give in.

High anxiety: you win.

In the year of '39 assembled here the Volunteers
In the days when lands were few
Here the ship sailed out into the blue and sunny morn
The sweetest sight ever seen.

And the night followed day
And the story tellers say
That the score brave souls inside
For many a lonely day sailed across the milky seas
Never looked back, never feared, never cried.

Don't you hear my call though you're many years away
Don't you hear me calling you
Write your letters in the sand
For the day I take your hand
In the land that our grandchildren knew.

In the year of '39 came a ship in from the blue
The volunteers came home that day
And they bring good news of a world so newly born
Though their hearts so heavily weigh

For the earth is old and grey, little darling we'll away
But my love this cannot be
For so many years have gone though I'm older but a year
Your mother's eyes from your eyes cry to me.

Don't you hear my call though you're many years away
Don't you hear me calling you
Write your letters in the sand
For the day I take your hand
In the land that our grandchildren knew.

Don't you hear my call though you're many years away
Don't you hear me calling you
All your letters in the sand cannot heal me like your hand

For my life
Still ahead
Pity Me

Have you ever seen an atom
Little bits of everything floating by
Take a good look at them
Collectively they compose all you see including your eye

Brilliant puzzle
A living Rubix Cube we think we can figure out and solve
But we're just monkeys
Scratching our heads trying to open our ears
To a chord that just won't seem to resolve

And we call it wisdom
Yes intellect in our truest sense of the word
You see for us security means a harmony
According to only what we have heard
And this alone and nothing less
Will ease our heart and our mind
In the hopes that in feeling free we'll reach paradise
On that hilltop we're still trying to find

But the possibility exists no matter how scary it may seem
That paradise was once the world and it wasn't just a dream
The earth was our heaven and we didn't know there were rules for us to break
And maybe now we'll find out too late what a clever hell we can make

Whoops
Whoops
Taheeka-haka-Whoops
Whoops

In this corner
Weighing in at almost every weight imaginable...
Life, and all that surrounds it
And in this corner
Weighing in at well, not really very much of anything;
A very sound and user friendly idea
On finally bringing that pesky mountain to Mohammed
Gentlemen at the sound of the harmonica solo you may come out fighting

Take a look at the horizon
Quiet and still
You know there used to be bison
Gentlemen you may fire at will
They say this land won't go to waste
But you gotta wonder how
You know we're chopping down the air we breathe
As fodder for the cow

That's right so we can eat well
Yes and starve to death
And say there's nothing we can do
Because we really don't want to do a goddamn thing
Look I'm shrugging and so are you
We can imagine the straightest of lines
But our fingers can't control the pen
And it's this frustration that yields relief
As we say we're just mortal men
And that means we get to torture a chimpanze
And infect him with disease
Because he screams just like a human child
While we study his desperate pleas

But the possibility exists no matter how scary it may seem
That paradise was once the world and it wasn't just a dream
The earth was our heaven and we didn't know there were rules for us to break
And maybe now we'll find out too late what a clever hell we can make

Whoops
Aw, whoops
Aw, whoops

While we're on the subject you know my conscience hurts (whoops)
And it will not go away (whoops)
So please concoct me some pill I can take (whoops)
While I think of something clever to say (whoops)
So I can look in my mirror made of polished glass (whoops)
And find no need to cringe (whoops)
And forget that sinking feeling I'm a dinosaur (whoops)
Out on his drunken last binge (whoops)

...from fossil to fossil (whoops)
Dust to dust (whoops)
I'll see you all in the earthly crust (whoops)

Whoops (a-daisy)
Whoops (a-daisy)
Whoops
Whoops
Whoops

This is the Mark E Smith and Inspiral Carpets version

 

(The whole ****** kitchen sink)
 
There are already all these rumours circulating around
I think you should remember whose side you are on
 
No one said it was gonna be easy
No one ever said
It was gonna be easy
The pain's to teach me the barrier's broken
 
The pain's to teach me the barrier's broken
 
And climbing aboard a white knuckle ride
Climbing aboard
On a white knuckle ride
I think you should remember whose side you are on
Churns my insides
And the wheels are in motion
 
There are already all these rumours circulating around
I want you
I think you should remember whose side you are on
 
My heart is set
Harder and harder
No chance of defeat
It's not in my nature
A course, receiver)
I've set a course and
I'm the great one, two, three wham bam
You're the receiver
I'm the retriever
I'm out to get you
(Barrier)
 
I want you
(And I want you back)
Right now
And forever
 
No one ever said
It was gonna be easy
A pain's to teach me
The barrier's broken
(Rough breakdowns)
 
(You say you lost two stone in weight
So why did you look like that?)
 
I want you
(I want you back)
Right now
And forever
 
(The Dutch East India Company
In the the you. S. A of A
Think they can fool with their sincere yous urea)
 
I want you
(I want you back)
Right now
And forever
 
I want you
(I want you back)
Right now
And forever
 
(You're)
The barrier's broken
(Harder and harder)
The barrier's broken
(Next year you'll be)
The barrier's broken
The barrier's broken
(I've set a course)
I want you

Today is gonna be the day

That they're gonna throw it back to you

By now you should've somehow

Realized what you gotta do

I don't believe that anybody

Feels the way I do about you now

 

Back beat, the word is on the street

That the fire in your heart is out

I'm sure you've heard it all before

But you never really had a doubt

I don't believe that anybody feels

The way I do about you now

 

And all the roads we have to walk are winding

And all the lights that lead us there are blinding

There are many things that I would

Like to say to you

But I don't know how

 

Because maybe

You're gonna be the one that saves me

And after all

You're my wonderwall

 

Today was gonna be the day

But they'll never throw it back to you

By now you should've somehow

Realized what you're not to do

I don't believe that anybody

Feels the way I do

About you now

 

And all the roads that lead you there were winding

And all the lights that light the way are blinding

There are many things that I would like to say to you

But I don't know how

 

I said maybe

You're gonna be the one that saves me

And after all

You're my wonderwall

 

I said maybe

You're gonna be the one that saves me

And after all

You're my wonderwall

 

I said maybe

You're gonna be the one that saves me

You're gonna be the one that saves me

You're gonna be the one that saves me

I'm on the chopping block

Chopping off my stopping thought

Self doubt and selfism

Were the cheapest things I ever bought

When you say it's love

D'you mean the back of love

When you say it's love

D'you mean the back of love ?

 

We're taking advantage of

Breaking the back of love

We're taking advantage of

Breaking the back of love

 

Easier said than done you said

But it's more difficult to say

With eyes bigger than our bellies

We want to but we can't look away

What were you thinking of

When you dreamt that up ?

What were you thinking of

When you dreamt that up ?

 

Taking advantage of

Breaking the back of love

 

When you're surrounded

by a simple chain of events

(Behind my eyes, behind my eyes)

(Your eyes don't lie)

Eventually you'll shack those shackles off

(Dreams above those eyes)

(Those eyes)

 

We can't tell our left from right

But we know we love extremes

Getting to grips with the ups and downs

Because there's nothing in between

When you say that's love

D'you mean the back of love

When you say that's love

D'you mean the back of love ?

 

Taking advantage of

Breaking the back of love

 

What were you thinking of

When you dreamt that up ?

 

We're taking advantage of

We're breaking the back of love

Breaking the back of love

The body is wrapped in shadow

The face is built of cinders

And panic tears thro' your silhouette

As you're squeezed by burning fingers

And he crackling in our colours

With teeth of gelignite

 

When he sighs his song and pirouettes

Thro' a dance of dynamite

 

We are fireworks - slowly, glowing

Bold and bright

 

We are fireworks - burning shapes

Into the night

 

His fuel is our frustration

And dreams begin to ache

And all the while we wear a party smile

 

And happily we shiver

And happily we shake

Oh shake, shake, shake

 

We are fireworks - slowly, glowing

Bold and bright

 

We are fireworks - burning shapes

Into the night

 

Twist and turn - burn, burn, burn

Twist and turn - burn, baby, burn

Treading the ground

I once used to know

People are strangers

Same as before

Streets look familiar

I remember the part

Where I buried my head

So deep in my hands

All around me was dark

 

This here city

Is for the lonely ones

Won't find no angels

Selling maps to the lost

This here place

Is too small for two

It took one to realize

When dreaming's this hard

It's not meant to come true

 

So throw me a line

Somebody out there help me

I'm on my own

I'm on my own

Throw me a line

Afraid that I have come here

To win you again

With trembling hands

 

Passing the days

Looking over the buildings

Time seems to stop

While the millions keep moving

Now here I am

I'm a drop in your ocean

Noise in the crowd

Pushing through your halls of reason

 

Ohh

 

So throw me a line

Somebody out there help me

I'm on my own

I'm on my own

Throw me a line

Afraid that I have come here

To win you again

With trembling hands

 

Hear me now make me whole

Hear me now make me whole

 

So throw me a line

Somebody out there help me

I'm on my own

I'm on my own

Throw me a line

Afraid that I have come here

To win you again

With trembling hands

With trembling hands

 

There goes the ending

It left me in the war

But I tried everything yeah

I am done with my part

Soldier is turning 

See him through white light

Running from strangers

See you in the valley 

 

War upon war

Heat upon heat

To cut a long story short 

I lost my mind

 

Sitting on a park bench

Years away from fighting

To cut a long story short 

I lost my mind

 

Standing in the dark

Oh I was waiting for man to come

I am beautiful and clean

And so very very young

 

To be standing in the street

To be taken by someone

 

Questions questions

Give me no answers

That's all they ever give me

Questions questions

 

Oh look at the strange boy

He finds it hard existing

To cut a long story short 

I lost my mind

 

To cut a long story short

I lost my...

Mi-i-i-i-ind !
