'87 And Cry


It's just a one dollar secret A lover's secrets in the UK Torn apart in the UK In the dribble of May-Day '87 and Cry '87 and Cry And there's nothing inside And there's nothing in mind And only you Rocket on thru the sky It couldn't be done without dogs It couldn't be once without us '87 and Cry '87 and Cry When the days were the days were the days boys When blue ties were for the biggy guys Frannie dressing down for the enemy You saw him hangin' on the enemy And there's no one in love And there's nowhere to scream And only you Race on to wonder where It couldn't be done without dogs It couldn't be once without us '87 and Cry '87 and Cry You can't make love with money You can't make mistakes with babies Nothing looked good on you That's how I liked you best Now you're ready for the real McCoy Deep in the heart of Cupid Murders on the heels of love Just the ghost of a story Just a one dollar secret Baby these were the sounds Baby these were the sounds And only you Whisper these things aren't true It couldn't be done with dogs It couldn't be once without us '87 and Cry '87 and Cry

1984


Someday they won't let you, so now you must agree The times they are a-telling, and the changing isn't free You've read it in the tea leaves, and the tracks are on TV Beware the savage jaw Of 1984 They'll split your pretty cranium, and fill it full of air And tell that you're eighty, but brother, you won't care You'll be shooting up on anything, tomorrow's never there Beware the savage jaw Of 1984 CHORUS Come see, come see, remember me? We played out an all night movie role You said it would last, but I guess we enrolled In 1984 (who could ask for more) 1984 (who could ask for mor-or-or-or-ore) (Mor-or-or-or-ore) I'm looking for a vehicle, I'm looking for a ride I'm looking for a party, I'm looking for a side I'm looking for the treason that I knew in '65 Beware the savage jaw Of 1984 CHORUS 1984 1984 1984 (more) 1984 1984 (more) 1984

1984/Dodo


Someday they won't let you, but now you must agree The times they are a-telling, and the changing isn't free You've read it in the tea leaves, the tracks are on TV Beware the savage jaw Of 1984 They'll break your pretty cranium, and fill it full of air And tell you that you're eighty, but lover you won't care You'll be shooting up as usual like tomorrow wasn't there Beware the savage jaw Of 1984 Come see, come see, remember me? We played at an all night movie role You said it would last, but I guess we rolled In 1984 (who could ask for more) 1984 (who could ask for more) Now we can talk in confidence Did you guess that we've been done wrong? Lies jump in queue to be first in line Such a shameless design He thinks he's well screened from the man at the top It's a shame that his children disagree They coolly decide to sell him down the line Daddy's brainwashing time He's a dodo, no no, didn't hear it from me (didn't hear it from me) He's a dodo, no no, didn't hear it from me (didn't hear it from me) She's doesn't recall her blessed childhood of yore When a unit was a figure, not a she When lovers chose each other seems the perks are due Another memo to screw She's a dodo, no no, didn't hear it from me (didn't hear it from me) She's a dodo, no no, didn't hear it from me (didn't hear it from me) Can you wipe your nose my child Without them slotting in your file a photograph? Will you sleep in fear tonight? Wake to find the scorching light of neighbour Jim He's come to turn you in Another dodo, no no, didn't hear it from me (didn't hear it from me) Another dodo, no no, didn't hear it from me (didn't hear it from me) Another dodo, no no, didn't hear it from me (didn't hear it from me) Come see, come see, remember me? We played at an all night movie role You said it would last, but I guess we enrolled In 1984, who could ask for more 1984, who could ask for mor-or-or-or-ore Mor-or-or-or-ore 1984 1984 (who could ask for more) 1984 1984 (who could ask for more) 1984 1984 (who could ask for more) 1984 Ooooo

A Big Hurt


??Vemy-shi?? To meet her once just to know it through and through I know, I know But it ain't finished till the fat lady sings I know, I know How can I help you? You're just a wanna-be I'm a believer You're a sex receiver And me with a big hurt You know I had a big hurt From the very start I'm hurting so bad 'Cause you're my roommate from hell CHORUS Got to take some blows on the stepping stones Speak in extremes It'll save you time You were a saint abroad But a devil at home Come on here, woo-woo And kiss it for me To meet her once just to know it through and through I know, I know Even a glass eye in a duck's ass can see that I know, I know How can I help you?

A Small Plot Of Land


VERSE Poor soul Spit upon that Poor soul He never knew what hit him And it hit him so Poor dunce He pushed back the pigmen The Barbs laughed The fool is dead Poor dunce He's less than within us The brains talk But the will to live is dead And prayer can't travel so far these days The talk of your life Standing so near To innocent eyes Poor dunce Swings thru the tunnels And claws his way Is small life so manic Are these really the days Poor dunce Poor dunce VERSE Poor soul Poor soul Poor soul

Absolute Beginners


I've nothing much to offer There's nothing much to take I'm an absolute beginner And I'm absolutely sane As long as we're together The rest can go to hell I absolutely love you But we're absolute beginners With eyes completely open But nervous all the same CHORUS If our love song Could fly over mountains Could laugh at the ocean/sail over heartaches second time Just like the films There's no reason To feel all the hard times To lay down the hard lines It's absolutely true Nothing much could happen Nothing we can't shake Oh we're absolute beginners With nothing much at stake As long as you're still smiling There's nothing more I need I absolutely love you But we're absolute beginners But if my love is your love We're certain to succeed CHORUS

Across The Universe


Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup They slither wildly as they slip away Across the universe Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting through my opened mind Possessing and caressing me CHORUS 1 (twice) Nothing's gonna change my world Nothing's gonna change my world Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes They call me on and on Across the universe Thoughts meander like the restless wind inside a letter box They tumble blindly as they make their way Across the universe CHORUS 1 (twice) Sounds of laughter, shades of life are ringing through my open ears Inciting and inviting me Limitless undying love, which shines around me like a million suns It calls me on and on and on Across the universe CHORUS 1 (thrice) CHORUS 2 (twice) Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing's gonna Nothing's gonna to change my world CHORUS 3 Nothing's gonna change it Nothing's gonna change it Hey CHORUS 3 (twice) Nothing's gonna change my world CHORUS 3 Nothing's gonna change my world

African Night Flight


African nightmare one-time Mormon More men fall in Hullabaloo men I slide to the nearest bar Undermine chairman I went too far Bent on a windfall rent a sony Wonder how the dollar went down Gotta get a word to Elizabeth's father Hey no, he wished me well CHORUS 1 (two times) Seemed like another day I could fly into the eye of god on high CHORUS 2 (two times) His burning eye will see me through One of these days, one of these days Gotta get a word through one of these days CHORUS 3 (two times) Asanti habari habari habari Asanti nabana nabana nabana Getting in mood for a Mombassa night flight Pushing my luck, gonna fly like a mad thing Bare strip takeoff skimming over Rhino Born in slumber less than peace Struggle with a child whose screaming dreaming Drowned by the props all steely sunshine Sick of you, sick of me Lust for the free life Quashed and maimed Like a valuable loved one Left unnamed CHORUS 1 (two times) Over the bushland over the trees Wise like Orangutan that was me CHORUS 2 (two times) CHORUS 3 (repeat ad inf.)

After All


Please trip them gently, they don't like to fall, Oh by jingo There's no room for anger, we're all very small, Oh by jingo We're painting our faces and dressing in thoughts from the skies, from paradise But they think that we're holding a secretive ball. Won't someone invite them They're just taller children, that's all, after all Man is an obstacle, sad as the clown, Oh by jingo So hold on to nothing, and he won't let you down, Oh by jingo Some people are marching together and some on their own Quite alone Others are running, the smaller ones crawl But some sit in silence, they're just older children That's all, after all I sing with impertinence, shading impermanent chords, With my words I've borrowed your time and I'm sorry I called But the thought just occurred that we're nobody's children at all, after all Live your rebirth and do what you will, Oh by jingo Forget all I've said, please bear me no ill, Oh by jingo After all, after all

After Today


Always in trouble Never to blame Must be your double Feel the same Here it comes again Doing the wrong thing Forgetting your lines Waiting for something Better to shine Hate that same old game After today - fortune then will find you After today - plane will fly you away After today - you'll find the one you're after After today - look out, after today What kind of rescue? What will you be? Where can you take it baby for free? Break that heart for me! CHORUS After today - the fortune fan will find you After today - they may pry you away After today - you'll find the one you're after After today - look out, after today CHORUS Today After today After toda-ay, hey Look out, after today Ah, yeah Look, ah (laughter) (spoken : I was getting in ta that) (laughter)

Algeria Touchshriek


My name is Mr. Touchshriek Of Touchshriek with mail over and fantasy My shop sells egg shells off the shesores and empty females I'm thinking of leasing the room above my shop To a Mr. Walloff Domburg A reject from the world wide Internet He's a broken man I'm also a broken man It would be nice to have company We could have great conversations Looking through windows for demons And watching the young advance in all electric Some of the houses around here still have inhabitants in them I'm not sure if they're from this country or not I don't get to speak much to anyone or that sort of thing If I had another broken name Oh, I dream of something like that

All The Madmen


Day after day They send my friends away To mansions cold and grey To the far side of town Where the thin men stalk the streets While the sane stay underground Day after day They tell me I can go They tell me I can blow To the far side of town Where it's pointless to be high 'Cause it's such a long way down So I tell them that I can fly, I will scream, I will break my arm I will do me harm Here I stand, foot in hand, talking to my wall I'm not quite right at all...am I? Don't set me free, I'm as heavy as can be Just my librium and me And my E.S.T. makes three 'Cause I'd rather stay here With all the madmen Than perish with the sadmen roaming free And I'd rather play here With all the madmen For I'm quite content they're all as sane As me (Where can the horizon lie When a nation hides Its organic minds In a cellar...dark and grim They must be very dim) Day after day They take some brain away Then turn my face around To the far side of town And tell me that it's real Then ask me how I feel Here I stand, foot in hand, talking to my wall I'm not quite right at all Don't set me free, I'm as helpless as can be My libido's split on me Gimme some good 'ole lobotomy 'Cause I'd rather stay here With all the madmen Than perish with the sadmen Roaming free And I'd rather play here With all the madmen For I'm quite content They're all as sane as me Zane, Zane, Zane Ouvre le Chien (rpt)

All The Young Dudes


Billy rapped all night 'bout his suicide How he'd kick it in the head when he was 25 Don't wanna stay alive when you're 25 Wendy's stealing clothes from unlocked cars Freddy's got spots from ripping off stars from his face Funky little boat race The television man is crazy Saying we're juvenile delinquent wrecks Man I need a TV when I've got T. Rex Hey brother you guessed I'm a dude CHORUS (twice) All the young dudes Carry the news Boogaloo dudes Carry the news Now Jimmy looking sweet though he dresses like a queen He can kick like a mule It's a real mean team We can love Oh we can love And my brother's back at home With his Beatles and his Stones We never got if off on that revolution stuff What a drag Too many snags Well I drunk a lot of wine And I'm feeling fine Gonna race some cat to bed Is this concrete all around Or is it in my head Oh brother you guessed I'm a dude CHORUS (repeat ad inf.)

Always Crashing In The Same Car


Every chance, every chance that I take I take it on the road Those kilometers and the red lights I was always looking left and right Oh, but I'm always crashing in the same car Jasmine, I saw you peeping As I pushed my foot down to the floor I was going round and round the hotel garage Must have been touching close to 94 Oh, but I'm always crashing in the same car

Amazing


I'm lazy You're crazy, girl Stay by my side I'm scared you'll Meet someone In whom you'll confide CHORUS Life's still a dream Your love's amazing Since I found you My life's amazing I pledge you You'll never be blue There's too much at stake to be down My nightmare Rooted here watching you go Divine in both, our lives CHORUS My life's a roll Go go go And it's amazing

Amlapura


Hey-hey it's the tall sail On a beach reach for java Make way for to Java Watching for Boogies Hey-hey it's a dreaming I would burn you if you should die Hey-hey I would burn too If you should lie upon that bamboo pyre CHORUS I dream of Amlapura Never saw in all my life a more shining jewel I dream of Amlapura Of an ocean or dream of a princess in stone Hey-hey golden roses around A rajah's mouth Hey-hey all the dead children buried standing A flying Dutchman Smoking gun and spice wind CHORUS I dream of Amlapura Of a princess in stone Hey-hey it's a tall ship Hey-hey Hey-hey Amlapura

Amsterdam


In the port of Amsterdam There's a sailor who sings Of the dreams that he brings From the wide open sea In the port of Amsterdam There's a sailor who sleeps While the river bank weeps To the old willow tree In the port of Amsterdam There's a sailor who dies Full of beer, full of cries In a drunken town fight In the port of Amsterdam There's a sailor who's born On a hot muggy morn By the dawn's early light In the port of Amsterdam Where the sailors all meet There's a sailor who eats Only fish heads and tails And he'll show you his teeth That have rotted too soon That can haul up the sails That can swallow the moon And he yells to the cook With his arms open wide "Hey, bring me more fish Throw it down by my side" And he wants so to belch But he's too full to try So he stands up and laughs And he zips up his fly In the port of Amsterdam You can see sailors dance Paunches bursting their pants Grinding women to porch They've forgotten the tune That their whiskey voice croaked Splitting the night With the roar of their jokes And they turn and they dance And they laugh and they lust Till the rancid sound of the accordion bursts And then out of the night With their pride in their pants And the sluts that they tow Underneath the street lamps In the port of Amsterdam There's a sailor who drinks And he drinks and he drinks And he drinks once again He'll drink to the health Of the whores of Amsterdam Who've given their bodies To a thousand other men Yeah, they've bargained their virtue Their goodness all gone For a few dirty coins Well he just can't go on Throws his nose to the sky And he aims it up above And he pisses like I cry On the unfaithful love In the port of Amsterdam In the port of Amsterdam

An Occasional Dream


I recall how we lived On the corner of a bed And we'd speak of a Swedish room Of hessian and wood And we'd talk with our eyes Of the sweetness in our lives And tomorrows of rich surprise... Some things we could do In our madness We burnt one hundred days Time takes time to pass And I still hold some ashes to me An Occasional Dream And we'd sleep, oh so close But not really close our eyes 'Tween the sheets of summer bathed in blue... Gently weeping nights It was long, long ago And I can't touch your name For the days of fater were strong for you... Danced you far from me In my madness I see your face in mine I keep a photograph It burns my wall with time Time An Occasional Dream Of mine An Occasional Dream Of mine An Occasional Dream Of mine

And I Say To Myself


And I say to myself I've got it wrong, wrong, wrong She is a play-girl She the wrong wrong girl for me And I say to myself You're a fool, fool, fool She doesn't love you She doesn't need you, this I know She's got a trail of men that she takes Wherever she goes She hasn't the strength to love any single man for a length of time [And I say to myself] Ooh, I don't stand a chance [And I say to myself] It's a long long romance [And I say to myself] Well, she's out to slay [And I say to myself] Well, she's got it made [And I say to myself] Oh yeah, oh yeah [And I say to myself] Oh yeah And I say to myself that she shouldn't love anybody else in the world but me And I say to myself Forget her now, now, now She don't want you She don't love you anymore And I say to myself you're a fool, fool, fool She's don't love you She don't need you, this I know And I turn around and look at myself You'll never get her, you're a fool Say after me I'm a fool- I'm a fool [And I say to myself] I can't get what I want [And I say to myself] And it makes me sad [And I say to myself] I can't get what I want [And I say to myself] And it makes me mad [And I say to myself] Oh yeah, oh yeah [And I say to myself] Oh yeah And I say to myself that she shouldn't love anybody else in the world but me, yeah Yeah [And I say to myself] Oh, I feel so sad [And I say to myself] She's making me mad [And I say to myself] And I say to myself [And I say to myself] That I love her [And I say to myself] And I say to myself that I need her [And I say to myself] Oh, I need her And I say to myself I'm a fool And I say to myself

Andy Warhol


Like to take a cement fix Be a standing cinema Dress my friends up just for show See them as they really are Put a peephole in my brain Two New Pence to have a go I'd like to be a gallery Put you all inside my show Andy Warhol looks a scream Hang him on my wall Andy Warhol, Silver Screen Can't tell them apart at all Andy walking, Andy tired Andy take a little snooze Tie him up when he's fast asleep Send him on a pleasant cruise When he wakes up on the sea Be sure to think of me and you He'll think about paint and he'll think about glue What a jolly boring thing to do Andy Warhol looks a scream Hang him on my wall Andy Warhol, Silver Screen Can't tell them apart at all (chorus x2)

Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere

As The World Falls Down


There's such a sad love Deep in your eyes, a kind of pale jewel Open and closed within your eyes I'll place the sky within your eyes There's such a fooled heart Beating so fast in search of new dreams A love that will last within your heart I'll place the moon within your heart CHORUS As the pain sweeps through Makes no sense for you Every thrill has gonst Wasn't too much fun at all But I'll be there for you-oo-oo As the world falls down Falling (As the world) Falling down Falling in love I'll paint you mornings of gold I'll spin you Valentine evenings Though we're strangers till now We're choosing the path between the stars I'll leave my love between the stars CHORUS Falling (As the world) Falling down Falling As the world falls down Falling Falling Falling Falling in love As the world falls down (down) Falling Falling Falling Falling in love As the world falls down Falling Falling Falling Makes no sense at all Makes no sense to fall Falling As the world falls down Falling Falling Falling in love As the world falls down (down) Falling Falling Falling in love Falling in love (love) Falling in love Falling in love Falling in love

Ashes To Ashes


Do you remember a guy that's been In such an early song I've heard a rumour from Ground Control Oh no, don't say it's true They got a message from the Action Man "I'm happy, hope you're happy too I've loved all I've needed to love Sordid details following" The shrieking of nothing is killing Just pictures of Jap girls in synthesis and I Ain't got no money and I ain't got no hair But I'm hoping to kick but the planet it's glowing CHORUS Ashes to ashes, funk to funky We know Major Tom's a junkie Strung out in heaven's high Hitting an all-time low Time and again I tell myself I'll stay clean tonight But the little green wheels are following me Oh no, not again I'm stuck with a valuable friend "I'm happy, hope you're happy too" One flash of light but no smoking pistol I never done good things I never done bad things I never did anything out of the blue, woh-o-oh Want an axe to break the ice Wanna come down right now CHORUS REPEAT My mother said to get things done You'd better not mess with Major Tom

Baal's Hymn (Der Choral Vom Großen Baal)


Whilst his mother's womb contained the growing Baal Even then the sky was waiting quiet and pale Naked, young, immensely marvellous Like Baal loved it, when he came to us That same sky remained with him in joy and care Even when Baal slept peaceful and unaware At night a lilac sky, a drunken Baal Turning pious as the sky grows pale So through hospital, cathedral, whiskey bar Baal kept moving onwards and just let things go When Baal's tired, boys, Baal cannot fall far He will have his sky down there below When the sinners congregate in shame together Baal lay naked, revelling in their distress Only sky, a sky that will go on forever Formed a blanket for his nakedness And that lusty girl, the world, who'll laughing yield To the men who'll stand the pressure of her thighs Sometimes gave him love-bites, such as can't be healed Baal survived it, he just used his eyes And when Baal saw lots of corpses scattered round He felt twice the thrill, despite the lack of room "Space enough" said Baal, "then I'll thicken the ground Space enough within this woman's womb" Any vice for Baal has got its useful side It's the man who practices it, he can't abide Vices have their point, once you see it as such Stick to two for one will be too much Slackness, softness are the sort of things to shun Nothing could be harder than the quest for fun Lots of strength is needed and experience too Swollen bellies can embarrass you Under gloomy stars and this poor veil of tears Baal will graze a pasture till it disappears Once it's been digested to the forest's teeth Baal trod singing for a well earned sleep Baal can spot the vultures in the stormy sky As they wait up there to see if Baal will die Sometimes Baal pretends he's dead, but vultures swoop Baal in silence dines on vulture-soup When the dark womb drags him down to its prize What's the world still mean to Baal, he's overfed So much sky is lurking still behind his eyes He'll just have enough sky when he's dead Once the Earth's dark womb engulfed the rotting Baal Even then the sky was up there, quiet and pale Naked, young, immensely marvellous Like Baal loved it when he lived with us

Baby


Baby Don't you cry Baby I'll sing you a lullabye We're walking down the Street of chance Where the chance is always Slim or none And the intentions unjust Baby there's nothing to see I've already been Down the street of chance Baby you're so clean Baby please stay clean Baby you're so young Baby please stay young Baby, don't you cry Baby, we've already cried

Baby Can Dance


I'm rolling out of the ferris wheel No one looks and no one feels But the baby can the baby can The way it feels just feeling you Holding out and falling out But the baby can the baby can CHORUS I'm the jumping man I'm the jumping man But baby can float Baby can drown Baby can touch her toes Toss her hair Makes you feel you're going nowhere Baby can dance Baby can dance Baby can walk around the town Attract a man and cut him down I'm the shadow man the jumping jack The man who can and don't look back But the baby can the baby can I'm rolling out of the ferris wheel No one looks and no one feels But the baby can the baby can CHORUS And the way it feels I'm feeling you Everyday is far away Everyday, everyday It's over now It's over now CHORUS

Baby Grace (A Horrid Cassette)


Test, testing, testing This, hmmm, Grace is my name And and I was...um... It was that phot... a fading photograph of A patch, a patchwork quilt. And they've put me on these Ramona put me on these interest drugs So I'm thinking very, too, bit too fast like a brain hatch And ah they won't let me see anybody If I want to sometimes and I ask I can still hear some pop...popular musics And aftershocks. (Ahhh-choo) See I've been watching a television of um... in the homelands That's the new homelands and um that's all I can remember And now they just want me to be quiet And I think something is going to be horrid

Baby It Can't Fall

Ballad Of The Adventurers (Die Ballade Von Den Abenteurern)


Sickened by sun, with rainstorms lashing him rotten A looted wreath crowning his tangled hair Every moment of his youth apart from its dream was forgotten Gone the roof overhead, but the sky was always there Oh you, who are flung out, alike from heaven and from Hades You murderers who've been so bitterly repaid Why did you part from the mothers who nursed you as babies It was peaceful and you slept and there you stayed Still he explores and rakes the absinthe green oceans Though his mother has given him up for lost Grinning and cursing with a few odd tears of contrition Always in search of that land where life seems best Loafing through hells and flocked through paradises Calm and grinning, with a vanishing face At times he still dreams of a small field he recognises With a blue sky overhead and nothing else

Bars Of The County Jail


La la la la la la la la (etc.) Gather you all and listen here I'll tell you a tale if you lend me an ear I rode a horse through many a town But the devil rode me down to the ground I was to marry a very rich girl I loved her as only I can But the father was shot and his gold was stoled And now I'm the devil's man, na na na And now I sing a tail of woe Through the bars of the county jail, na la la la la la la la la la La la la la la la la la (etc.) I walked into the room one night I found her mother and gun Well, the man was dead and I kneeled and cried The sheriff ran in and said "I'm holding you, son" La la la la la la la la (etc.) Through the day I sing and play For time is on my side But when the moon and stars come out I lay me down and cry For the Saviour, mar I lied Now I will not have a ride Beside the window the scaffold was made On the morrow I will hang...

What's going on? There'll be some blood no doubt about it But we'll come thru don't doubt it I look into your eyes and I know you won't kill me You won't kill me You won't kill me But I look into your eyes And I wonder sometimes Oh Lord, just let him see me Lord, Lord just let him hear me Let him call me brother Let him put his arms around me Let him put his hands together. Reach over race and hold each other's hands Walk thru the nite thinking we are the world Woa! What's going on? There'll be some blood no doubt about it But we'll come thru don't doubt it I look into your eyes and I know you won't kill me You won't kill me You won't kill me But I wonder why Yes, and I wonder why sometimes They'll show us how to break the rules But never how to make the rules Reduce us down to witless punks Facist cries both black and white, who's got the blood, who's got the gun. Putting on the black tie, cranking out the white noise (Just a fool!)

Bombers


(CHORUS) All clear wail the sirens Sunshine on the wasteland Old man sitting in the white sand Think we're in for a big surprise Right between the eyes Seemed a good idea To drop a bomb on the wasteland here Only one man could be seen And he was old and so serene Captain sat in his deck chair And the red light flashed Beware Pilot felt quite big-time As the bomb sailed through the air Well, they danced and sang When the bang went bang When the lights popped out And the smoke began to clear It was positively queer (CHORUS) "Die" said the General "Cobblers" said the man So the Pentagon sent a cable And the Queen a telegram A-bombs, H-bombs, even very small ones Ripped apart that sand 'Til the stench was just revolting And the sky a greenish tan But the soldier said "Sir, there's a crack in the world" And the figures went "squash", and the bits flew far and wide How the universe sighed! (CHORUS twice) When the smoke had blown away There was nothing left to view Except a man dear Lord who looked like you Floating high up in the sky

I could escape this feeling, with my China Girl I feel a wreck without my, little China Girl I hear her heart beating, loud as thunder Saw they stars crashing I'm a mess without my, little China Girl Wake up mornings where's my, little China Girl I hear her heart's beating, loud as thunder Saw they stars crashing down I feel a-tragic like I'm Marlon Brando When I look at my China Girl I could pretend that nothing really meant too much When I look at my China Girl I stumble into town just like a sacred cow Visions of swastikas in my head Plans for everyone It's in the whites of my eyes My little China Girl You shouldn't mess with me I'll ruin everything you are I'll give you television I'll give you eyes of blue I'll give you men who want to rule the world And when I get excited My little China Girl says Oh baby just you shut your mouth She says ... sh-sh-shhh

Ching-A-Ling


While walking on Red Roosters Lawn A char-faced man I'd spy He blew into his handkerchief And stuttered as he sighed I wish I'd play the doodah horn The doodah horn is fine I'd sell my house and ferny coach To make this daydream mine Doodah doo, doodah (etc.) [Whilst flying through an azure cloud A crystal girl I'd spy She kissed the blue bird's honey tongue And stuttered as she sighed I wish to sing the Ching-A-Ling song Ching-A-Ling song is fine I'd give my jewels and caviar To make this daydream mine] [Ching-A-Ling, Ching-A-Ling, Ching-A-Ling] (etc.) [While stepping through a heaven's eye Two lover souls we spied They wished the cloud boys sang to me A cheerful happy cry We love to play our love-strong hearts No better do we know No gifts of money do we give For love is all we own] Na na na na na na, na na na na na na na na [Ching-A-Ling, Ching-A-Ling, Ching-A-Ling] (etc.)

Come And Buy My Toys


Smiling girls and rosy boys Come and buy my little toys Monkeys made of gingerbread And sugar horses painted red Rich men's children running past Their fathers dressed in hose Golden hair and mud of many acres on their shoes Gazing eyes and running wild Past the stocks and over stiles Kiss the window merry child But come and buy my toys You've watched your father plough the fields with a ram's horn Sowed it wide with peppercorn and furrowed with a bramble thorn Reaped it with a sharpened scyth, threashed it with a quill The miller told your father that he'd work it with the greatest will Now your watching's over you must play with girls and boys Leave the parsley on the stalls Come and buy my toys You shall own a cambric shirt You shall work your father's land But now you shall play in the market square Till you'll be a man Smiling girls and rosy boys Come and buy my little toys Monkeys made of gingerbread And sugar horses painted red

Conversation Piece


I took this walk to ease my mind To find out what's gnawing at me Wouldn't think, to look at me, that I've spent a lot of time in education It all seems so long ago I'm a thinker, not a talker I've no-one to talk to, anyway I can't see the road for the rain in my eyes I live above the grocers store, owned by an Austrian He often calls me down to eat And he jokes about his broken English, tries to be a friend to me But for all my years of reading conversation, I stand without a word to say I can't see the bridge for the rain in my eyes Ahhh-huh, h...uh, huh And the world is full of life Full of folk who don't know me And they walk in twos or threes or more While the light that shines above the grocer's store investigates my face so rudely And my essays lying scattered on the floor Fulfill their needs just by being there And my hands shake, my head hurts, my voice sticks inside my throat I'm invisible and dumb, no-one will recall me And I can't see the water through the tears in my ey-y-yes

Crack City


Oh come all you children Don't grab that scabby hand It belongs to Mr. Sniff and Tell It belongs to the candyman Don't whore your little bodies Tthe worms of paradise Like Everest it's fatal Its peaks are cold as ice They're riding on the subways They're riding on the streets They'll ride you down to the gutters They'll ride you off your feet CHORUS Gonna hit Crack City Hit Crack City Piss on the icon monsters Whose guitars bequeath you pain They'll face you down to their level With their addictions and their fast lanes Corrupt with shaky visions And crack and coke and alcohol They're just a bunch of assholes With buttholes for their brains You can't keep on riding The pain you know so well They'll ride you down to the gutter They'll ride you down to hell CHORUS And you the master dealer May death be on your brow May razors slash your mainline I'm calling you out right now May all your vilest nightmares Consume your shrunken head May the ho-ho-hoounds of paranoia Dance upon your stinking bed Don't look at me you fuckhead This nation's turning blue Its stink it fouls the highways Its filth it sticks like glue CHORUS They'll bury you in velvet And place you underground The hatred of yourself And the sufferings that conspire To take your little body and throw it to the fools And the hounds that rip your flesh Only your mind can take you out of this Only your mind or death I'm riding on the subway The subway down to hell I've finished with this journey I seem to know it well CHORUS

Cracked Actor


I've come on a few years from my Hollywood Highs The best of the last, the cleanest star they ever had I'm stiff on my legend, the films that I made Forget that I'm fifty cause you just got paid Crack, baby, crack, show me you're real Smack, baby, smack, is that all that you feel Suck, baby, suck, give me your head Before you start professing that you're knocking me dead You caught yourself a trick down on Sunset and Vine But since he pinned you baby you're a porcupine You sold me illusions for a sack full of cheques You've made a bad connection 'cause I just want your sex Crack, baby, crack, show me you're real Smack, baby, smack, is that all that you feel Suck, baby, suck, give me your head Before you start professing that you're knocking me dead

Criminal World


You never told me of your other faces You were the widow of a wild cat And now I know about your special kisses And I know you know where that's at I guess I recognise your destination I think I see beneath your make-up What you want is sort of separation This is no ordinary This is no ordinary (Ah, ah, ah) What a criminal world The boys are like baby-faced girls What a criminal girl She'll show you where to shoot your gun What a typical mother's son The only thing that she enjoys Is a criminal world Where the girls are like baby-faced boys You've got a very heavy reputation But no-one knows about your low-life I know a way to find a situation And hold a candle to your high-life disguise You caught me kneeling at your sister's door That was no ordinary stick-up I'm well aware just what you're looking for I am no ordinary I am no ordinary (Ah, ah, ah) What a criminal world The boys are like baby-faced girls What a criminal girl She'll show you where to shoot your gun What a typical mother's son The only thing that she enjoys Is a criminal world Where the girls are like baby-faced boys

Cygnet Committee


I bless you madly, sadly as I tie my shoes I love you badly, just in time, at times, I guess Because of you I need to rest Because it's you that sets the test So much has gone and little is new And as the sparrow sings Dawn chorus for Someone else to hear The Thinker sits alone growing older And so bitter "I gave Them life I gave Them all They drained my very soul...dry I crushed my heart to ease Their pains No thought for me remains there Nothing can They spare What of me? Who praised Their efforts to be free? Words of strength and care and sympathy I opened doors that would have blocked Their way I braved Their cause to guide, for little pay I ravaged at my finance just for Those Those whose claims were steeped in peace, tranquility Those who said a new world, new ways ever free Those whose promises stretched in hope and grace for me" I bless you madly, sadly as I tie my shoes I love you badly, just in time, at times, I guess Because of you I need to rest, oh yes Because it's you that sets the test So much has gone and little is new And as the sunrise stream Flickers on me, My friends talk Of glory, untold dream, where all is God and God is just a word "We had a friend, a talking man Who spoke of many powers that he had Not of the best of men, but Ours We used him We let him use his powers We let him fill Our needs Now We are strong And the road is coming to its end Now the damned have no time to make amends No purse of token fortune stands in Our way The silent guns of love will blast the sky We broke the ruptured structure built of age Our weapons were the tongues of crying rage Where money stood We planted seeds of rebirth And stabbed the backs of fathers Sons of dirt Infiltrated business cesspools Hating through Our sleeves Yea, and We slit the Catholic throat Stoned the poor on slogans such as 'Wish You Could Hear' 'Love Is All We Need' 'Kick Out The Jams' 'Kick Out Your Mother' 'Cut Up Your Friend' 'Screw Up Your Brother or He'll Get You In the End' And We Know the Flag of Love is from Above And We Can Force You to Be Free And We Can Force You to Believe" And I close my eyes and tighten up my brain For I once read a book in which the lovers were slain For they knew not the words of the Free States' refrain It said: "I believe in the Power of Good I Believe in the State of Love I Will Fight For the Right to be Right I Will Kill for the Good of the Fight for the Right to be Right" And I open my eyes to look around And I see a child laid slain on the ground As a love machine lumbers through desolation rows Ploughing down man, woman, listening to its command But not hearing anymore - Not hearing anymore Just the shrieks from the old rich And I Want to Believe In the madness that calls 'Now' And I want to Believe That a light's shining through Somehow And I Want to Believe And You Want to Believe And We Want to Believe And We Want to Live Oh, We Want to Live We Want to Live We Want to Live We Want to Live We Want to Live We Want to Live I Want to Live I Want to Live I Want to Live I Want to Live I Want to Live I Want to Live Live Live Live

Dead Against It


And when she drowns Within and in the fizzy gin, begins to sigh "Good god" or "My" I cry and die and lie beside She is the apple in my eye She talked to god I couldn't cope Or'd hope eloped A dope she roped This salty lie CHORUS And when she's dreaming, I believe And when she's reading, I retreat Can't believe her Telling me she's dead again Telling me she's dead against it And deep my wound Within for every second chance it was ?deign-torn? From deep within, despite the rain, my words are worn She loves to talk into the phone No matter who No matter when No matter where No better than the faulty line CHORUS

Dead Man Walking


He swivels his head Tears his eyes from the screen As his past puts him back in Atlantic City There's not even a demon in Heaven or Hell Is it all just human disguise As I walk down the aisle And I'm gone gone gone Now I'm older than movies Let me dance away Now I'm wiser than dreams Let me fly fly fly While I'm touching tomorrow And I know who's there When silhouettes fall And I'm gone Like I'm dancing on angels And I'm gone through a crack in the past Like a dead man walking Like a dead man walking Two young? men dancing under the lamplight Shaking their sex and their bones And the boys that we were An alien nation in therapy Sliding naked and new Like a bad tempered child On a rain slicked street And I'm gone gone gone And I'm older than movies Oh let me dance dance dance Now I'm wiser than dreams Let me fly fly fly While I'm touching tomorrow And I know who's there When silhouettes fall And I'm gone And I'm gone, like I'm dancing on angels And I'm gone, through the crack in the past Like a dead man walking Like a dead man walking Like a dead man Like a dead man walking And I'm gone gone gone Let me dance dance dance And I'm gone gone gone Let me dance dance dance And I'm gone, like I'm dancing on angels And I'm gone, through a crack in the past And I'm gone, like I'm dancing on angels And I'm gone, through a crack in the past Like a dead man walking Like a dead man walking Like a dead man Like a dead man walking ad lib...

Diamond Dogs


(spoken) This ain't rock'n'roll. This is genocide! As they pulled you out of the oxygen tent You asked for the latest party With your silicone hump and your ten inch stump Dressed like a priest you was Tod Browning's freak you was Crawling down the alley on your hands and knee I'm sure you're not protected, for it's plain to see The diamond dogs are poachers and they hide behind trees Hunt you to the ground they will, mannequins with kill appeal CHORUS (Will they come?) I'll keep a friend serene (Will they come?) Oh baby, come unto me (Will they come?) Well, she's come, been and gone. Come out of the garden, baby You'll catch your death in the fog Young girl, they call them the Diamond Dogs Young girl, they call them the Diamond Dogs The Halloween Jack is a real cool cat And he lives on top of Manhattan Chase The elevator's broke, so he slides down a rope Onto the street below, oh Tarzie, go man go Meet his little hussy with his ghost town approach Her face is sans feature, but she wears a Dali brooch Sweetly reminiscent, something mother used to bake Wrecked up and paralyzed, Diamond Dogs are sableized CHORUS Oo-oo-ooh, call them the Diamond Dogs (x2) In the year of the scavenger, the season of the bitch Sashay on the boardwalk, scurry to the ditch Just another future song, lonely little kitsch (There's gonna be sorrow) try and wake up tomorrow CHORUS Ooh, call them the Diamond Dogs (x2) Bow-wow, woof woof, bow-wow, wow Call them the Diamond Dogs Dogs Call them the Diamond Dogs, call them, call them Call them the Diamond Dogs, call them, call them, ooo Call them the Diamond Dogs Keep cool Diamond Dogs rule, OK Hey-hey-hey-hey Beware of the Diamond Dogs (repeat)

Did You Ever Have A Dream


Did you ever have a dream or two Where the hero is a guy named you And the things he does are just too much Does he fly like Mr. Superman, speak Chinese, French and Dutch? And did you ever have a dream or two? Have you ever woken up one day With the feeling that you'd been away? If the girl that you dreamed of last night Had the same dream, in the very same scene With the very same boy, hold tight It's a very special knowledge that you've got, my friend You can travel anywhere with anyone you care It's a very special knowledge that you've got, my friend You can walk around in New York while you sleep in Penge I will travel round the world one night On the magic wings of astral flight If you've got the secret, tell me do Have you ever had a dream or two? Have you ever had a dream or two?

Dodo


Now we can talk in confidence Did you guess that we've been done wrong? Lies jump in queue to be first in line Such a shameless design Ah, thinks he's well screened from the man at the top It's a shame that his children disagree They coolly decide to sell him down the line Daddy's brainwashing time He's a dodo, no no, didn't hear it from me He's a dodo, no no, didn't hear it from me She's quite enthralled with her childhood of yore When a unit was a figure, not a she When lovers chose each other, now the perks are due Another memo to screw She's a dodo, no no, didn't hear it from me She's a dodo, no no, didn't hear it from me Can you wipe your nose my child Without them slotting in your file a photograph? Can you sleep alone at night? Wake to find the scorching light of neighbour Jim He's come to turn you in Another dodo, no no, didn't hear it from me Another dodo, no no, didn't hear it from me Ah, another do do, no, didn't hear it do-do, do-do, do

Still I keep my love for you No place to hide no way to fall Nowhere to lie no world so wide I'm sick and tired of telling you Don't let me down and down and down Don't let me down and down and down I know there's something in the wind That crazy balance of my mind What kind of fool are you and I? Scared to death and tell me why I'm sick and tired of telling you Don't let me down and down and down Don't let me down and down and down Still I keep my love for you You made a date with destiny You jog-jog in my memory You haunt in mind not fade away I'm sick and tired of telling you Don't let me down and down and down Don't let me down and down and down I'm sick and tired of telling you Still I keep my love for you No place to hide, no way to fall Nowhere to lie no world so wide I'm sick and tired of telling you Don't let me down and down and down Don't let me down and down and down

Don't Look Down


Don't look down They're making sorta crazy sounds Don't look down, no Don't know who else came to kneel On this empty battlefield But when I hear that crazy sound, I don't look down >From Central Park to shanty town I always hear that crazy sound >From New York to shanty town There's always something else Don't look down, no I went this morning to the cemetary To see old Rudy Valentino buried Lipstick traces on his name He never looked down 'Cause they were making crazy sounds >From Central Park to shanty town He always heard that crazy sound There's always something else Don't look down, no When I see you standing there I can't see the clothes you wear I just hear that crazy sound And I can't look down >From Central Park to shanty town I've always heard that crazy sound >From New York to shanty town There's always something else Don't look down, no Don't look down Don't look, don't look down No I won't be bored I won't be there Look at life it's no piece of cake When I hear that crazy sound I don't look down >From Central Park to shanty town I always hear that crazy sound >From New York to shanty town There's always something else Don't look down Don't look down, no Well, don't look, don't look down

Drive In Saturday


Let me put my arms around your head Gee, it's hot, let's go to bed Don't forget to turn on the light Don't laugh babe, it'll be alright Pour me out another phone I'll ring and see if your friends are home Perhaps the strange ones in the dome Can lend us a book we can read up alone And try to get it on like once before When people stared in Jagger's eyes and scored Like the video films we saw His name was always Buddy And he'd shrug and ask to stay She'd sigh like Twig the Wonder Kid And turn her face away She's uncertain if she likes him But she knows she really loves him It's a crash course for the ravers It's a Drive-in Saturday Jung the foreman prayed at work That neither hands nor limbs would burst It's hard enough to keep formation with this fall out saturation Cursing at the Astronette Who stands in steel by his cabinet He's crashing out with Sylvian The Bureau Supply for ageing men With snorting head he gazes to the shore Which once had raised a sea that raged no more Like the video films we saw His name was always Buddy And he'd shrug and ask to stay She'd sigh like Twig the Wonder Kid And turn her face away She's uncertain if she likes him But she knows she really loves him It's a crash course for the ravers It's a Drive-in Saturday (repeat chorus) It's a Drive-in Saturday (repeat)

Dum Dum Boys


[Spoken] What happened to Zeke? He's dead out of ?? How about Dave? OD'd on alcohol What's Rock doing? Oh he's living with his mother What about James? He's going straight Things have been tough Without the dum dum boys I can't seem to speak The language I remember how they Used to stare at the ground They looked as if they Put the whole world Looked as if they put the whole world down The first time I saw the dum dum boys I was fascinated They just stood in front Of the old drug store I was most impressed No one else was impressed Not at all And we'd sing da-da-da-da-da-da dum dum day Where are you now my dum dum boys are you Alive or dead Have you left me the last Of the dum dum daze Then the sun goes down And the boys broke down People said we were negative They said we'd take but we would never give But we'd sing da-da-da Da-da-da dum dum day Da-da-da-da-da dum And hope it would pay Da-da-da-da it's been A dumdumdum day A dum dum day Now I'm looking for The dum dum boys Where are you now When I need your noise Now I'm looking for The dum dum boys The walls close in and I need some noise

Eight Line Poem


The tactful cactus by your window Surveys the prairie of your room The mobile spins to its collision Clara puts her head between her paws They've opened shops down West side Will all the cacti find a home But the key to the city Is in the sun that pins the branches to the sky

You look so good to me Here in this old saloon Way back in West Berlin A bottle of white wine White wine and you A table made of wood And how I wish you would Fall in love with me Standing out in the street With your cheap fur on Or maybe your plastic raincoat And your plastic shoes They look good too Standing in the snow You're younger than you look Fall in love with me Fall in love with me How I wish you would A table made of wood And a bottle of white wine And you - and a bottle of White wine and you And when you're standing In the street and it's cold And it snows on you And you look younger Than you really are I wish you would Fall in love with me I wish you would Fall in love with me I wish you would Fall in love with me I wish you would Fall in love with me Yeah The way your eyes are black The way your hair is black The way your heart is young There is just a few like you Just the kind I need To fall in love with me Oh and you look so good Yes you look so good A bottle of white wine A cigarette and you Here in this saloon White wine and you I wish you'd fall in love with me I wish you'd fall in love with me Cause there's Just a few like you So young and real Fall in love with me Fall in love with me Fall in love with me Fall in love with me I wish you would You look so good When you're young at heart Won't you Come to this old saloon Come to my waiting arms A table made of wood And I will look at you 'Cause you're so young and pure And you're young at heart A bottle of white wine And when you're tumbling down You just look better When you're tumbling down You just look finer

Fantastic Voyage


In the event that this fantastic voyage Should turn to erosion and we never get old Remember it's true, dignity is valuable But our lives are valuable too We're learning to live with somebody's depression And I don't want to live with somebody's depression We'll get by, I suppose It's a very modern world, but nobody's perfect It's a moving world, but that's no reason To shoot some of those missiles Think of us as fatherless scum It won't be forgotten 'Cause we'll never say anything nice again, will we? And the wrong words make you listen In this criminal world Remember it's true, loyalty is valuable But our lives are valuable too We're learning to live with somebody's depression And I don't want to live with somebody's depression We'll get by I suppose But any sudden movement I've got to write it down They wipe out an entire race and I've got to write it down But I'm still getting educated but I've got to write it down And it won't be forgotten 'Cause I'll never say anything nice again, how can I?

Glass Spider


Up until one century ago there lived, In the Zi Duang provence of eastern country A glass-like spider. Having devoured its prey it would drape the skeletons over its web, In weeks creating a macabre Shrine of remains Its web was also unique in that it had many layers, Like floors in a buuilding At the top of this palace-like place, assembled with almost apparent Care, were tiny, shining objects, glass, beads, dew-drops. One could almost call it an altar. When the breeze blew thru this construction, It produced sounds of wailing, crying. Tiny wails, tiny cries. The baby spiders would get scared and search frantically For their mother. But the Glass Spider would have long gone, having known that the babies Would survive someone on their own. Oh-The Glass Spider had blue eyes almost like-a human's. They shed tears at the wintered turn of the centuries. Don't you hear this wasted cry, Life is over you (Mummy come back 'cause the water's all gone) But you've seen who's in heaven. Is there anyone in hell (Mummy come back 'cause it's dark now) Take care, take care. (Mummy come back 'cause the water's all gone) Somewhere she glows divine. Somewhere she wakes alone. But you, you've promise in your lovin' eye. God it's dark now. Jah Jah Jah Jah Jah Jah Jah Jah Jah Jah Gone, Gone the water's all gone Mummy come back 'cause the water's all gone Stay low on the ground, fire can drive you, savage and afraid Spitting the dawn, come come come along before the animals awake Run, run, we've been moving all night, rivers to the left. If your mother don't love you then the riverbed might Gone, gone, the water's all gone Mummy come back 'cause the water's all gone Jah Jah Jah Jah Jah Jah Jah Jah Jah Jah Gone gone the water's all gone Mummy come back 'cause the water's all gone

God Knows I'm Good


I was walking through the counters of a national concern And a cash machine was spitting by my shoulder And I saw the multitude of faces, honest, rich and clean As the merchandise exchanged and money roared And a woman hot with worry slyly slipped a tin of stewing steak Into the paper bag at her side And her face was white with fear in case her actions were observed So she closed her eyes to keep her conscience blind Crying "God knows I'm good God knows I'm good God knows I'm good God may look the other way today God knows I'm good God knows I'm good God knows I'm good God may look the other way today" Then she moved toward the exit clutching tightly at her paper bag Perspiration trickled down her forehead And her heart it leapt inside her as the hand laid on her shoulder She was led away bewildered and amazed Through her deafened ears the cash machines were shrieking on the counter As her escort asked her softly for her name And a crowd of honest people rushed to help a tired old lady Who had fainted to the whirling wooden floor Crying "God knows I'm good God knows I'm good God knows I'm good Surely God won't look the other way God knows I'm good God knows I'm good God knows I'm good Surely God won't look the other way"

God Only Knows


If you should ever leave me My life would still go on believe me The world could show nothing to me So what good would living do me God only knows what I'd be without you I may not always love you But as long as there are stars above you You'll never need to doubt it I'll make you so sure about it God only knows what I'd be without you

Growin' Up


Well I stood stonelike at midnight Suspended in my masquerade I combed my hair till it was just right And commanded the night brigade I was open to pain and crossed by the rain And I walked on a crooked crutch I strolled all alone through a fallout zone Came out with my soul untouched I hid in the clouded wrath of the crowd But when they said `Sit down' I stood up Ooh-ooh growin' up The flag of piracy flew from my mast My sails were set wing to wing I had a jukebox graduate for first mate She couldn't sail but she sure could sing I pushed the B-52 and bombed `em with the blues With my gear set stubborn on standing I broke all the rules, strafed my old high school Never once gave thought to landing, no I hid in the clouded wrath of the crowd But when they said `Come down' I threw up Ooh-ooh growin' up I took month-long vacations in the stratosphere And you know it's really hard to hold your breath And I swear I lost everything I ever loved or feared I was the cosmic kid in full costume dress Well my feet finally took root in the earth But I got me a nice little place in the stars And I swear I found the key to the universe In the engine of an old parked car I hid in the mother breast of the crowd But when they said `Move down' I moved up Ooh-ooh, doncha know that I'm growin' up Ooh-ooh, I can't help it that I'm growin' up

Growing Up And I'm Fine

If There Is Something


If there is something That I might find Look around corners Try to find peace of mind, I say "Where would you go If you were me? Trying to keep a straight course is not easy" Somebody special Looking at me Same kind of reaction Warning about me What it might try to be Too easy to say Being specific's just a game It's just a game-ame-ame-ame I would do anything for you I would come all day I would swim all the oceans blue I would walk a thousand miles Reveal my secrets More than enough for me to share I will put roses around your door Sit in the garden Growing potatoes by the score Shake your head girl, with your ponytail Takes me right back [when you were young] Throw your precious gifts into the air Watch them fall down [when you were young] Lift up - lift up your feet and put them on the ground You used to walk upon [when you were young] Lift up - lift up your feet and put them on the ground The hills were higher [when you were young] Lift up - lift up your feet and put them on the ground The trees were taller then [when you were young] Lift up - lift up your feet and put them on the ground The grass was greener [when you were young] Your love could feel you with devotion Used to walk upon [when you were young]

In The Heat Of The Morning


The blazing sunset in your eyes will tantalize Every man who looks your way I watched them sink before your gaze Seniorita sway Dance with me before their frozen eyes I'm so much in love Like a little soldier catching butterflies CHORUS No man loved like I love you Wouldn't you like to love me too In the heat of the morning In the shadow I'll clip your wings And I'll tell you I love you In the heat of the morning I'll tie a knot in rainbow's end, organise the breeze Light my candle from the sun I'll give you daylight for a friend I'll do all of these I'll prove that it can be done, oh, I'm so much in love Like the ragged boy who races with the wind CHORUS In the heat of the morning In the shadow I'll clip your wings And I'll tell you I love you In the heat of the morning Oh yeah, all day, all the way Ooh

Isolation


Needed you You were only using Needing you just Tore me down Here I stand In isolation Feeling emptiness and doubt Walking down the Broken highway Sucking sugar Plain and sweet Did your mother Ever tell you That the joyful are free I need some lovin' Like an inmate needs a dime I need some lovin' Like a poet needs a rhyme Here I stand in isolation My empty hands - in isolation Walking down the Broken highway Sucking sugar 'Cause it's my way Find me one heart To complete with Heading for the Farthest beaches I need some lovin' Like a body needs a soul I need some lovin' Like a fastball needs control Here I stand in isolation My empty hands - in isolation Strike up the band In this proud land Got a lot to do Got a lot to say Got a life to live Here I stand - In isolation

It Ain't Easy


When you climb to the top of the mountain Look out over the sea Think about the places perhaps, where a young man could be Then you jump back down to the rooftops Look out over the town Think about all of the strange things circulating round It ain't easy, it ain't easy It ain't easy to get to heaven when you're going down Well all the people have got their problems That ain't nothing new With the help of the good Lord We can all pull on through We can all pull on through Get there in the end Sometimes it'll take you right up and sometimes down again It ain't easy, it ain't easy It ain't easy to get to heaven when you're going down Satisfaction, satisfaction Keep me satisfied I've got the love of a Hoochie Koochie woman She calling from inside She's a-calling from inside Trying to get to you All the woman really wants you can give her something too It ain't easy, it ain't easy It ain't easy to get to heaven when you're going down (repeat x2)

It's Gonna Be Me


Hey Jack I better shake it off. put her out of my head Thinking I balled just another young girl last night Oh brother! I left a woman in that morning bed Been on that trip so many times Good god! was it really yesterday? I've tried so many, many, many, many, many, many ways I've lied and taken off into the day Leaving another girl to weep over the breakfast tray Loved her before I knew her name, hit me Jack, 'cause I'm Gonna love her way CHORUS (Come back, my babe) Come back, my babe Be holy again, I gave her (I gave her) Ooh, maybe, maybe (Ooh maybe) Gotta give her, ooh baby, baby (Ooh baby) That kind of love Can only destroy, I gave her (I gave her) Ooh maybe, maybe (Ooh maybe) Get it down if I'm gonna be her baby, 'cause (Ooh baby) Gonna be me (It's gonna be me) There was no rein to check me When all of those little things walked on by Oh! But I couldn't really stammer out a word When that angel stuck in my mind Oooooh, looking for love won't hold me back (No!) I'm gonna love her way CHORUS Just playing that latest record Waiting for the telephone to ring Wiped out and bitter with a bag clutched in her hand All the cars sound like they're pulling in the drive Hmmm, no, no, no I see her now A little tear running down her cheek Lost, let down People looking for me I want to race down her street And knock hard, hard, hard on the door until Until she breaks down into my arms like a Treasured toy and I feel her pain I'll be so strong, again and again Come back my baby I'm hold you again, I'll take you (I'll take you) Ooh, baby, baby, baby (Ooh baby) We're gonna have, ooh baby, baby (Ooh baby) My kind of love Can only bring you joy, I'm gonna (I'm gonna) Yeah, baby (Ooh baby) Yeah, I'll give you baby, baby (Ooh baby) 'Cause it's gonna be me (It's gonna be me) Hmmmm

It's Hard To Be A Saint In The City


I had skin like leather and the diamond-hard look of a cobra I was born blue and weathered but I burst just like a super-nova I could walk like Brando into the sun, and dance just like a Casanova With my black-jack and jacket and my hair slicked sweet Silver studs on my duds just like a Harley in heat When I strut down the street I can hear its heartbeat The sisters fell back and said "Don't that man look pretty" The cripple on the corner cried out "Penny, nickels for your pity" Them gasoline boys down-town, they sure talk gritty It's so hard to be a saint in the city I was the king of the alley, mama, I could talk some trash I was the Prince of the Paupers, crowned down-town at the Beggars' Bash I was a pimp's main prophet, I kept everything cool Just a back-street gambler with the luck to lose And when the heat came down it was left on the ground, mama Devil appeared to me like Jesus through the steam in the street, and Showed me a hand that even the cops couldn't beat And I felt his hot breath on my neck as I dove into the heat, and It's so hard to be a saint when you're just a poor boy out on the street And the sages of the subway sit just like the living dead As the tracks clack out the rhythm, the eyes fixed straight ahead They ride the line of balancing, hold on by just a thread Well, it's too hot in these tunnels, you can get hit up by the heat When you get up to get out at your next stop but they push you right down in your seat And your heart starts beatin faster as you struggle to your feet Then you're out of that hole! Back on the street And them south-side sisters, they sure look pretty And the cripple on the corner cries out "Nickels for your pity" And them down-town boys, they sure talk gritty It's so hard to be a saint in the city

Let me introduce you to the gang Johnny plays the sitar, he's an existentialist Once he had a name, now he plays our game You won't feel so good now that you've joined the gang Molly is the model in the ads Crazy clothes and acid full of soul and crazy hip Someone switched her on, then her beam went wrong Cause she can't switch off now that she's joined the gang Arthur is a singer with a band Arthur drinks two bottles just before he goes on stage Look at Arthur rave, all the kids are paid They want to see the croaking man who joined the gang You won't be alone, we've all got beery grins It's a big illusion but at least you're in At least you're in This club's called The Webb, it's this month's pick Next month we shall find a place where prices aren't so stiff 15 bob a coke, 'fraid that's past a joke This is how to spend now that you've joined the gang This is what to do now that you're here Sit round doing nothing all together very fast Psychedelic stars, throwing down cigars They're picking up the joints now that they've joined the gang

Julie


Julie Oh And I know Like a mirror, Sunday morning When the dark clouds hung above I saw you kneeling 'neath a garden I saw the grim and stood above What kind of meaning in a gun shot It doesn't matter what they say I never felt I aimed at no one And who's gonna take the gun away Julie Pretend for me That I'm someone in your life Julie I'm yours till the end All the days and memories I'm not a man of single reason It's in every single man This beat of jealous retribution And every spurned heart makes its plan Well, I know that you really loved him And I know that if there's a God above Through million times we'll remember How the trail slips away Julie Pretend for me Even only for a while Julie My soul is on the line All the days and memories Julie Remember me All the days of your life Julie I'm lost over you Passion always ends this way End this way

Jump They Say


When comes the shaking man A nation in his eyes Striped with blood and emblazed tattoo Streaking cathedral spire They say he has no brain They say he has no mood They say he was born again They say look at him climb They say 'Jump' They say he has two gods They say he has no fear They say he has no eyes They say he has no mouth They say hey that's really something They feel he should get some time I say he should watch his ass My friend don't listen to the crowd They say 'Jump' Got to believe somebody Got to believe

Karma Man


Fingertip sun at sideshow stalls, they throw the balls At coconut fur that hides behind Coloured shades that blind your eyes Every child's mother holds an ice-cream cone, they circle round Perceived unknown by an eye that peers from a hole in the tent where no one goes A figure sitting cross-legged on the floor He's clogged and clothed in saffron robes His beads are all he owns Slow down, slow down Someone must have said that slowed him down Slow down, slow down It's pictured on the arms of the Karma Man Fairy tale skin, depicting scenes from human zoos Impermanent toys like peace and war A gentle face you've seen before Karma Man tattooed on your side, the wheel of life I see my times and who I've been I only live now and I don't know why I struggle hard to take these pictures in, but All my friends can see is just the pinkness of his skin Slow down, slow down Someone must have said that slowed him down Slow down, slow down It's pictured on the arms of the Karma Man Slow down, slow down Someone must have said that slowed him down Slow down, slow down It's pictured on the arms of the Karma Man

Kingdom Come


Well I walked in the pouring rain And I heard a voice that cries "It's all in vain" The voice of doom was shining in my room I just need one day somewhere far away Lord I just need one day Well I'll be breaking these rocks And cutting this hay Yes I'll be breaking these rocks What's my price to pay Well the river's so muddy, but it may come clear And I know too well what's keeping me here I'm just the slave of a burning ray Oh give me the night, I can't take another sight Please, please give me the night CHORUS Sun keeps beating down on me, wall's a mile high Up in the tower they're watching me hoping I'm gonna die I won't be breaking no rocks I said "I won't be breaking no rocks" (I won't be breaking no rocks) Oh-oh-oh (I won't be breaking no rocks) Oh-oh-oh (I won't be breaking no rocks) When the kingdom comes (repeat ad inf)

Lady Grinning Soul


She'll come, she'll go. She'll lay belief on you Skin sweet with musky odour The lady from another grinning soul Cologne she'll wear. Silver and Americard She'll drive a beetle car And beat you down at cool Canasta And when the clothes are strewn don't be afraid of the room Touch the fullness of her breast. Feel the love of her caress She will be your living end She'll come, she'll go. She'll lay belief on you But she won't stake her life on you How can life become her point of view And when the clothes are strewn don't be afraid of the room Touch the fullness of her breast. Feel the love of her caress She will be your living end (repeat)

Lady Stardust


People stared at the makeup on his face Laughed at his long black hair, his animal grace The boy in the bright blue jeans Jumped up on the stage And lady stardust sang his songs Of darkness and disgrace CHORUS And he was alright, the band was altogether Yes he was alright, the song went on forever And he was awful nice Really quite out of sight (second time: really quite paradise) And he sang all night long Femme fatales emerged from shadows To watch this creature fair Boys stood upon their chairs To make their point of view I smiled sadly for a love I could not obey Lady stardust sang his songs Of darkness and dismay CHORUS Oh how I sighed when they asked if I knew his name CHORUS

Law (Earthling On Fire)


I don't want knowledge, I want certainty (x3) In the street a man shouts out loud A wallet drops and money flies into the midday sun With the sound, with the sound, with the sound of the ground (x3) Oh I get a little bit afraid Sometimes Earthlings on fire (x2) CHORUS With the sound, with the sound, with the sound of the ground (x3) Sure I get a little bit afraid Sometimes Earthlings on fire (x4) I don't want knowledge, I want certainty (x2) In a house a man drops dead As he hits the floor he sighs "What a morning" CHORUS (x2) Sometimes Earthlings on fire (repeat to last verse as backing vocals) Oh I get a little bit afraid Sometimes I don't want knowledge, I want certainty (x2) Oh I get a little bit afraid Sometimes I don't want knowledge, I want certainty (x2) I don't want knowledge

Let Me Sleep Beside You


Baby, baby, brush the dust of youth from your shoulder Because the years of fretting days are right behind you now Don't return to fields of green where rainbow secrets were told Place your ragged doll with all the toys and things and deeds I will show you a game where the winner never wins CHORUS Let your hair hang down, wear the dress your mother wore Let me sleep beside you Lock away your childhood and throw away the key For now the streets and city sounds will burn your eyes as coals We shall drink the oldest wine and velvet skies will linger Child, you're a woman now, your heart and soul are free I will boldly light that lamp and we shall walk together CHORUS Your darkened eyes throw mystery But your lips are void of history You could not imagine that it could happen this way, could you I will give you dreams and I'll tell you things you'll like to hear CHORUS Let me sleep beside you

Let's Dance


Let's dance, put on your red shoes and dance the blues Let's dance, to the song they're playin' on the radio Let's sway, while colour lights up your face Let's sway, sway through the crowd to an empty space If you say run, I'll run with you If you say hide, we'll hide Because my love for you Would break my heart in two If you should fall Into my arms And tremble like a flower Let's dance, for fear your grace should fall Let's dance, for fear tonight is all Let's sway, you could look into my eyes Let's sway, under the moonlight, this serious moonlight If you say run, I'll run with you If you say hide, we'll hide Because my love for you Would break my heart in two If you should fall Into my arms And tremble like a flower Let's dance, put on your red shoes and dance the blues Let's dance, to the song they're playin' on the radio Let's sway, you could look into my eyes Let's sway, under the moonlight, this serious moonlight

Let's Spend The Night Together


Well, don't you worry 'bout what's been on my mind I'm in no hurry I can take my time I'm going red and my tongue's getting tired Out of my head and my mouth's getting dry I'm h-h-h-high CHORUS Let's spend the night together Now I need you more than ever Let's spend the night together now I feel so strong that I can't disguise, oh my Well, I just can't apologise, no Don't hang me up but don't let me down We could have fun just by fooling around, and around and around CHORUS Oh You know I'm smiling baby You need some guiding baby I'm just deciding baby CHORUS This doesn't happen to me every day No excuses I've got anyway, heh I'll satisfy your every need And I'll know you'll satisfy me, oh my-my-my my-my THREE TIMES: Let's spend the night together Now I need you more than ever Let's spend the night together They said we were too young Our kind of love was no fun But our love comes from above Do it! Let's make love Hoo! CHORUS

Letter to Hermione


The hand that wrote this letter Sweeps the pillow clean So rest your head and read a treasured dream I care for no one else but you I tear my soul to cease the pain I think maybe you feel the same What can we do? I'm not quite sure what we're supposed to do So I've been writing just for you They say your life is going very well They say you sparkle like a different girl But something tells me that you hide When all the world is warm and tired You cry a little in the dark Well so do I I'm not quite sure what you're supposed to say But I can see it's not okay He makes you laugh He brings you out in style He treats you well And makes you up real fine And when he's strong He's strong for you And when you kiss It's something new But did you ever call my name Just by mistake? I'm not quite sure what I'm supposed to do So I'll just write some love to you

Life On Mars?


It's a god-awful small affair To the girl with the mousy hair But her mummy is yelling "No" And her daddy has told her to go But her friend is nowhere to be seen Now she walks through her sunken dream To the seat with the clearest view And she's hooked to the silver screen But the film is a saddening bore For she's lived it ten times or more She could spit in the eyes of fools As they ask her to focus on Sailors fighting in the dance hall Oh man! Look at those cavemen go It's the freakiest show Take a look at the Lawman Beating up the wrong guy Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know He's in the best selling show Is there life on Mars? It's on Amerika's tortured brow That Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow Now the workers have struck for fame 'Cause Lennon's on sale again See the mice in their million hordes From Ibeza to the Norfolk Broads Rule Britannia is out of bounds To my mother, my dog, and clowns But the film is a saddening bore 'Cause I wrote it ten times or more It's about to be writ again As I ask you to focus on Sailors fighting in the dance hall Oh man! Look at those cavemen go It's the freakiest show Take a look at the Lawman Beating up the wrong guy Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know He's in the best selling show Is there life on Mars?

Like A Rolling Stone


Yeah How does it feel How does it feel Once upon a time you dressed so fine Threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn't you People called, say "Beware doll, you're bound to fall" Thought they were all kidding you You used to laugh about Everybody that was hanging out Now you don't talk so loud Now you don't seem so proud About having to be scrounging for your next meal How does it feel How does it feel To be without a home Like a complete unknown Just like a rolling stone You've gone to the finest school, Miss Lonely But you know you only used to get juiced in it No one ever taught you how to live on the street You're gonna have to get used to it You said you'd never compromize With the mystery tramp, but now you realize He's not selling any alibis As you stare into the vacuum of his eyes And you ask him if you want to make a deal How does it feel How does it feel To be on your own Like a complete unknown Just like a rolling stone Tell me Tell me Tell me Yeah "Oh, rock Ronno, rock" You never turned around to catch the frowns on the jugglers and clowns When they all did their tricks for you You never understood that it ain't no good To let other people get your kicks for you You used to ride a chrome horse with your diplomat Who carried on his shoulder a Siamese cat Ain't it hard to discover that He really wasn't where it's at After he took from you everything he could steal How does it feel How does it feel To be on your own Like a complete unknown To be without a home Just like a rolling stone Just like a rolling stone Just like a rolling stone

Little Bombardier


War made him a soldier Little Frankie Mear Peace left him a loser The little bombardier Lines of worry appeared with age Unskilled hands that knew no trade Spent his time in the picture house The little bombardier Frankie drank his money The little that he made Told his woes to no man Friendless, lonely days Then one day, in the ABC Four bright eyes gazed longingly At the ice-cream in the hand of The little bombardier Sunshine entered our Frankie's days Gone his worries, his hopeless maze His life was fun and his heart was full of joy Two young children had changed his aims He gave them toffees and played their games He brought them presents with every coin he made Then two gentlemen called on him Asked him for his name Why was he friends with the children Were they just a game? Leave them alone or we'll get sore We've had blokes like you in the station before The hand of authority said "no more" to The little bombardier Packed his bags, his heart in pain Wiped a tear and caught a train Not to be seen in the town again The little bombardier

Little Miss Emperor


You're not giving an inch You're not strung like wire Your open arms they flinch Joan Crawford style Treated like a towel Inside you howl On some dark concrete Midnight street You've built an altar That's quite complete Your self control Is damned amazing You're trying hard And I want you Little Miss Emperor You really want to grow And you're alert, I know But babies mostly drown It's a company town Cheat gods and joke Attack your noble ghost I saw the best minds Of my generation Learn how to crawl Across our nation Conformity falls Like one wet blanket Look how we live And I want you Little Miss Emperor Little Miss Emperor Trying to open doors

Little Toy Soldier


Once upon a time there was a toy soldier And he lived in the playroom Once upon a time there was a toy soldier With a whiplash in his hand And every night little girl Sadie would take all her clothes off And wind up the toy solider And he'd raise his whip and say to her CHORUS "On your knees, little Sadie Little Sadie, on your knees Taste the whip, and love not given lightly Taste the whip, and bleed for me" Little Sadie loved her little toy soldier And she'd run home from school each day Little Sadie loved her little toy soldier And she'd lock the door so she could play Little Sadie got ambitious and Wound the clockwork soldier tighter So he could whip her harder and harder CHORUS One day, Sadie wound and wound And wound and wound And wound and wound Till suddenly The little toy soldier's spring went Woo-woo-woo-woo-woo Arrgghhhh!

Maid Of Bond Street


This girl is made of lipstick Powder and paint Sees the pictures of herself Every magazine on every shelf This girl is maid of Bond Street Hailing cabs, lunches with executives Gleaming teeth sip aperitifs This girl is a lonely girl Takes the train from Paddington to Oxford Circus Buys the Daily News But passengers don't smile at her, don't smile at her This girl is made of loneliness A broken heart For the boy that she once knew Doesn't want to know her any more And this girl is a lonely girl Every thing she wants is hers But she can't make it with the boy she really wants to be with All the time, to love, all the time This boy is made of envy Jealousy He doesn't have a limousine Really wants to be a star himself This girl, her world is made of flashlights and films Her cares are scraps on the cutting room floor And maids of Bond Street drive round in chauffered cars Maids of Bond Street picture clothes, eyes of stars Maids of Bond Street shouldn't have worldly cares Maids of Bond Street shouldn't have love affairs

Man In The Middle


Like an inventor He is a symbol of a new age He glides above the realms Of you and me He flows through your life And makes you feel quite small You may sit up in your chair He doesn't care at all He's the man in the middle You can tell which way he lays He's the man in the middle And he realises And he realises And he realises Beauty pays His gowns come from Paris Occasionally from Rome He can go anywhere Say back to his home He flows through your life And makes you feel quite small Flashing to the white collars Ha, he doesn't care at all He's the man in the middle You can tell which way he lays He's the man in the middle And he realises And he realises And he realises Beauty pays Please... He's the man in the middle You can tell which way he lays He's the man in the middle And he realises And he realises And he realises Beauty pays He's the man in the middle You can tell which way he lays He's the man in the middle And he realises And he realises And he realises Beauty pays Please...

Memory of a Free Festival


The Children of the summer's end Gathered in the dampened grass We played Our songs and felt the London sky Resting on our hands It was God's land It was ragged and naive It was Heaven Touch, We touched the very soul Of holding each and every life We claimed the very source of joy ran through It didn't, but it seemed that way I kissed a lot of people that day Oh, to capture just one drop of all the ecstasy that swept that afternoon To paint that love upon a white balloon And fly it from the toppest top of all the tops That man has pushed beyond his brain Satoria must be something just the same We scanned the skies with rainbow eyes and saw machines of every shape and size We talked with tall Venusians passing through And Peter tried to climb aboard but the Captain shook his head And away they soared Climbing through the ivory vibrant cloud Someone passed some bliss among the crowd And We walked back to the road, unchained "The Sun Machine is Coming Down, and We're Gonna Have a Party The Sun Machine is Coming Down, and We're Gonna Have a Party The Sun Machine is Coming Down, and We're Gonna Have a Party The Sun Machine is Coming Down, and We're Gonna Have a Party The Sun Machine is Coming Down, and We're Gonna Have a Party."

Modern Love


I catch a paper boy But things don't really change I'm standing in the wind But I never wave bye-bye But I try, I try There's no sign of life It's just the power to charm I'm lying in the rain But I never wave bye-bye But I try, I try Never gonna fall for CHORUS Modern love - walks beside me Modern love - walks on by Modern love - gets me to the church on time Church on time - terrifies me Church on time - makes me party Church on time - puts my trust in god and man God and man - no confessions God and man - no religion God and man - don't believe in modern love It's not really work It's just the power to charm I'm still standing in the wind But I never wave bye bye But I try, I try CHORUS (x2) Modern love - Modern love (x12) Modern love - Modern love, walks beside me Modern love - Modern love, walks on by (repeat 3 more times)

Move On


Sometimes I feel The need to move on So I pack a bag And move on Move on Well I might take a train Or sail at dawn Might take a girl When I move on When I move on Somewhere, someone's calling me When the chips are down I'm just a travelling man Maybe it's just a trick of the mind, but Somewhere there's a morning sky Bluer than her eyes Somewhere there's an ocean Innocent and wild Africa is sleepy people Russia has its horsemen Spent some nights in old Kyoto Sleeping on the matted ground Cyprus is my island When the going's rough I would love to find you Somewhere in a place like that Somewhere, someone's calling me When the chips are down I stumble like a blind man Can't forget you Can't forget you Feeling like a shadow Drifting like a leaf I stumble like a blind man Can't forget you Can't forget you Can't forget you Can't forget you

Music Is Lethal


My Death


My death waits like an old Drouet So confident I'll go his way Whistle to him and the passing time My death waits like a bible truth At the funeral of my youth We drank for that and the passing time My death waits like a witch at night As surely as our love is bright Let's not think about the passing time CHORUS But what ever lies behind the door There is nothing much to do Angel or devil, I don't care For in front of that door, there is you My death waits like a beggar blind Who sees the world through an unlit mind Throw him a dime for the passing time My death waits there between your thighs Your cool fingers will close my eyes Let's not think of that and the passing time My death waits to allow my friends A few good times before it ends So let's drink to that and the passing time CHORUS My death waits there among the leaves In magician's mysterious sleeves Rabbits and dogs and the passing time My death waits there among the flowers Where the blackest shadow, blackest shadow cowers Let's pick lilacs for the passing time My death waits there in a double bed Sails of oblivion at my head So pull up the sheets against the passing time CHORUS

Nathan Adler


Old Touchschriek was the main nameserver Suspected of being a shoulder surfer But he didn't know from shit About challenge response systems Now Ramona A Stone we know was selling interest drugs She got males all hung up on her mind filters She was if you don't mine me saying so an update demon Now Leon He couldn't wait for 12 o'clock midnight He jumps up on the stage With a criss criss machete And slashes around cutting a zero on everything I mean a zero in the fabric of time itself Was this a suspect? I says to myself Woa! "Quelle courage!" Oh wait, I'm getting ahead of myself Let me take you back to when it all began

Neighborhood Threat


Down where your paint is cracking Look down you backstairs buddy Somebody's living there and He don't really feel the weather And he don't share your pleasures No he don't share your pleasures Look at his eyes Did you see his crazy eyes You're so surprised he don't run to catch your ash Everybody always wants to kiss your trash You can't help him Nobody can Now that he knows There's nothing to get Will you still place your bet On the neighborhood threat Somewhere a baby's bleeding Somewhere a mother's needing Outside a boy is lying But mostly he is crying And he just shouts in anger You'll find him interesting Look at his eyes Did you see his crazy eyes You're so surprised he doesn't build for you Everybody always wants to run with you

Never Let Me Down


When I believed in nothing I called her name Trapped in a high-dollar joint in some place I called her name And though my days are slipping by And nights so cruel I thought I'd die She danced her little dance 'till it made me cry She was shakin' like this honey doing that When I needed soul revival I called your name When I was falling to pieces I screamed in pain Your soothing hand that turned me round A love so real swept over me You danced your little dance 'till it made me cry You were shakin' like this honey doing that Never let me down She never let me down Never let me down She never let me down When all your faith is failing Call my name When you've nothing coming Call my name I'll be strong for all it takes I'll cover your head till the bad stuff breaks I'll dance my little dance till it makes you smile Shaking like this honey doing that Never let you down I'll never let you down I'll never let you down I'll never let you down

New York's In Love


Do you see that thing I'm sure it's love Would you do one thing New York's in love The city grew wings in the back of the night The clouds are stuck like candy-floss She sees the rich trash having all the fun Makes her wonder where they get the energy from There's nothing you can do to her This city's all clean and waiting I don't mean to wait too long But this joint can't get much higher CHORUS New York's in love- With her big green eyes And her long blonde hair New York's in flames New York's in love With the way she talks And the way she walks New York's in love Goo Goo Goo Goo Goo Goo My, oh my, it's a tom-tom beat No-one knows they've had their day We can dance and we can see the singles swing Everybody's waiting for the Go-Go Boys. You're turned to stone by the family It's now the dead speak to the living Nothing left here but a raging blaze I don't mean to wait too long CHORUS New York's in love- With her big green eyes And her long blonde hair New York's in flames New York's in love With the way she talks And the way she walks New York's in love Goo Goo Goo Goo Goo Goo

Night Clubbing


Nightclubbing we're nightclubbing We're what's happening Nightclubbing we're nightclubbing We're an ice machine We see people brand new people They're something to see When we're nightclubbing Bright-white clubbing Oh isn't it wild? Nightclubbing we're nightclubbing We're walking through town Nightclubbing we're nightclubbing We walk like a ghost We learn dances brand new dances Like the nuclear bomb When we're nightclubbing Bright white clubbing Oh isn't it wild...

Nite Flights


There's no hold The moving has come through The danger passing you Turns its face into the heat and runs the tunnels It's so cold The dark dug up by dogs The stiches torn and broke The raw meat fist you choke Has hit the bloodlite Glass traps open and close on nite flights Broken necks feather weights press the walls Be my love, we will be gods on nite flights With only one promise, only one way to fall Glass traps open and close on nite flights Broken necks feather weights press the walls Be my love, we will be gods on nite flights With only one promise, only one way to call On nite flights Only one way to fall

No Control


Stay away from the future Back away from the light It's all deranged - no control Sit tight in your corner Don't tell God your plans It's all deranged No control If I could control tomorrow's haze The darkened shore wouldn't bother me If I can't control the web we weave My life will be lost in the fallen leaves Every single move's uncertain Don't tell God your plans It's all deranged No control I should live my life on bended knee If I can't control my destiny You've gotta have a scheme You've gotta have a plan In the world of today, for tomorrow's man No control Stay away from the future Don't tell God your plans It's all deranged No control Forbidden words, deafen me In memory, no control See how far a sinful man Burns his tracks, his bloody robes You've gotta have a scheme You've gotta have a plan In the world of today, for tomorrow's man I should live my life on bended knee If I can't control my destiny No control I can't believe I've no control It's all deranged I can't believe I've no control It's all deranged Deranged Deranged

Oh! You Pretty Things


Wake up you sleepy head Put on some clothes, shake up your bed Put another log on the fire for me I've made some breakfast and coffee Look out my window and what do I see A crack in the sky and a hand reaching down to me All the nightmares came today And it looks as though they're here to stay What are we coming to No room for me, no fun for you I think about a world to come Where the books were found by the Golden ones Written in pain, written in awe By a puzzled man who questioned What we were here for All the strangers came today And it looks as though they're here to stay Oh You Pretty Things Don't you know you're driving your Mamas and Papas insane Oh You Pretty Things Don't you know you're driving your Mamas and Papas insane Let me make it plain You gotta make way for the Homo Superior Look at your children See their faces in golden rays Don't kid yourself they belong to you They're the start of a coming race The earth is a bitch We've finished our news Homo Sapiens have outgrown their use All the strangers came today And it looks as though they're here to stay Oh You Pretty Things Don't you know you're driving your Mamas and Papas insane Oh You Pretty Things Don't you know you're driving your Mamas and Papas insane Let me make it plain You gotta make way for the Homo Superior

Panic In Detroit


He looked a lot like Che Guevara, drove a diesel van Kept his gun in quiet seclusion, such a humble man The only survivor of the National People's Gang Panic in Detroit, I asked for an autograph He wanted to stay home, I wish someone would phone Panic in Detroit He laughed at accidental sirens that broke the evening gloom The police had warned of repercussions They followed none too soon A trickle of strangers were all that were left alive Panic in Detroit, I asked for an autograph He wanted to stay home, I wish someone would phone Panic in Detroit Putting on some clothes I made my way to school And I found my teacher crouching in his overalls I screamed and ran to smash my favourite slot machine And jumped the silent cars that slept at traffic lights Having scored a trillion dollars, made a run back home Found him slumped across the table. A gun and me alone I ran to the window. Looked for a plane or two Panic in Detroit. He'd left me an autograph "Let me collect dust." I wish someone would phone Panic in Detroit

Please Mr. Gravedigger


There's a little churchyard just along the way It used to be Lambeth's finest array Of tombstones, epitaphs, wreaths, flowers all that jazz Til the war came along and someone dropped a bomb on the lot And in this little yard, there's a little old man With a little shovel in his little bitty hand He seems to spend all his days puffing fags and digging graves He hates the reverend vicar and he lives all alone in his home "Ah-choo, excuse me" Please Mr. Gravedigger, don't feel ashamed As you dig little holes for the dead and the maimed Please Mr. Gravedigger, I couldn't care If you found a golden locket full of some girl's hair And you put it in your pocket "God, it's pouring down" Her mother doesn't know about your sentimental joy She thinks it's down below with the rest of her toys And Ma wouldn't understand, so I won't tell So keep your golden locket all safely hid away in your pocket Yes, Mr. GD, you see me every day Standing in the same spot by a certain grave Mary-Ann was only 10, full of life and oh so gay And I was the wicked man who took her life away Very selfish, Oh God No, Mr. GD, you won't tell And just to make sure that you keep it to yourself I've started digging holes myself And this one here's for you "Lifted our girl, she apparently doesn't know of it Hello misses, thought she'd be a little girl Bloody obscene, catch pneumonia or something in this rain"

Prisoner Of Love


Don't look back Whatever it takes to save your life I've believed I belonged to you for a long time And my heart says no, no one but you Like a rescue on a darkened street Love walked into town I was a victim of my own self-persecution I'm a prisoner of love-but I'm coming up for air CHORUS Now don't be fooled by fools who promise you The world and all that glitters more fool you I'm such a hungry man that I beg you over and over and over and over And I might take any highway to be there with you Even the best men shiver in their beds I'm loving you above everything I have I'm a prisoner of love-just stay square Like a sermon on a blues guitar Love walked into town I was drowning so slowly One step in front of your shadow I'm a prisoner of love but I'm coming up for air CHORUS I smell the sickness sown in this city It drives me to hide you, yea, even deceive you I'm so afraid for you that I'll break any thug that maps out your passage to ruin Even the best men shiver in their beds I'm loving you above everything I have I'm a prisoner of love-just stay square

I'm up on the eleventh floor And I'm watching the cruisers below He's down on the street And he's trying hard to pull sister Flo Oh, my heart's in the basement My weekend's at an all time low 'Cause she's hoping to score So I can't see her letting him go Walk out of her heart Walk out of her mind She's so swishy in her satin and tat In her frock coat and bipperty-bopperty hat Oh God, I could do better than that She's an old-time ambassador Of sweet talking, night walking games And she's known in the darkest clubs For pushing ahead of the dames If she says she can do it Then she can do it, she don't make false claims But she's a Queen, and such are queens That your laughter is sucked in their brains Now she's leading him on And she'll lay him right down Yes she's leading him on And she'll lay him right down But it could have been me Yes, it could have been me Why didn't I say, why didn't I say, no, no, no She's so swishy in her satin and tat In her frock coat and bipperty-bopperty hat Oh God, I could do better than that So I lay down a while And I look at my hotel wall Oh the cot is so cold It don't feel like no bed at all Yeah I lay down a while And I look at my hotel wall But he's down on the street So I throw both his bags down the hall And I'm phoning a cab 'Cause my stomach feels small There's a taste in my mouth And it's no taste at all It could have been me Oh yeah, it could have been me Why didn't I say, Why didn't I say, no, no, no She's so swishy in her satin and tat In her frock coat and bipperty-bopperty hat Oh God, I could do better than that

Quicksand


I'm closer to the Golden Dawn Immersed in Crowley's uniform Of imagery I'm living in a silent film Portraying Himmler's sacred realm Of dream reality I'm frightened by the total goal Drawing to the ragged hole And I ain't got the power anymore No I ain't got the power anymore I'm the twisted name on Garbo's eyes Living proof of Churchill's lies I'm destiny I'm torn between the light and dark Where others see their targets Divine symmetry Should I kiss the viper's fang Or herald loud the death of Man I'm sinking in the quicksand of my thought And I ain't got the power anymore Don't believe in yourself Don't deceive with belief Knowledge comes with death's release I'm not a prophet or a stone age man Just a mortal with the potential of a superman I'm living on I'm tethered to the logic of Homo Sapien Can't take my eyes from the great salvation Of bullshit faith If I don't explain what you ought to know You can tell me all about it On the next Bardo I'm sinking in the quicksand of my thought And I ain't got the power anymore Don't believe in yourself Don't deceive with belief Knowledge comes with death's release

Ragazzo Solo, Ragazza Sola


La mia mente ha preso il volo Un pensiero, uno solo Io cammino mentre dorme la citta' I suoi occhi nella notte Fanali bianchi nella notte Una voce che mi parla chi sara'? Dimmi ragazzo solo dove vai, Perche' tanto dolore? Hai perduto senza dubbio un grande amore Ma di amori e' tutta piena la citta', No ragazza sola, no no no Stavolta sei in errore Non ho perso solamente un grande amore Ieri sera ho perso tutto con lei. Ma lei I colori della vita Dei cieli blu Una come lei non la trovero' mai piu' Ora ragazzo solo dove andrai La notte e' un grande mare Se ti serve la mia mano per nuotare Grazie ma stasera io vorrei morire Perche' sai negli occhi miei C'e' un angelo, un angelo Che ormai non vola piu' che ormai non vola piu' Che ormai non vola piu' C'e' lei I colori della vita Dei cieli blu Una come lei non la trovero' mai piu'

Remembering Marie A. (Erinnerung An Die Marie A.)


It was a day in that blue month September Silent beneath the plum trees' slender shade I held her there My love, so pale and silent As if she were a dream that must not fade Above us in the shining summer heaven There was a cloud my eyes dwelled long upon It was quite white and very high above us Then I looked up And found that it had gone And since that day, so many moons in silence Have swum across the sky and gone below The plum trees surely have been chopped for firewood And if you ask, how does that love seem now I must admit, I really can't remember And yet I know what you are trying to say But what her face was like, I know no longer I only know I kissed it on that day As for the kiss, I long ago forgot it But for the cloud that floated in the sky I know that still and shall forever know it It was quite white and moved in very high It may be that the plum trees still are blooming That woman's seventh child may now be there And yet that cloud had only bloomed for minutes When I looked up It vanished on the air

Repetition


Johnny is a man And he's bigger than you But his overheads are high And he looks straight through when you ask him how the kids are He'll get home around seven 'Cause the chevy's real old And he could have had a cadillac If the school had taught him right And he could have married Anne with the blue silk blouse He could have married Anne with the blue silk blouse And the food is on the table But the food is cold Don't hit her "Can't you even cook? What's the good of me working when you can't damn cook?" Well Johnny is a man And he's bigger than her I guess the bruises won't show If she wears long sleeves But the space in her eyes shows through And he could have married Anne with the blue silk blouse He could have married Anne with the blue silk blouse Shows through Shows through Shows through

Ricochet


Like weeds on a rockface waiting for the scythe Ricochet - ricochet The world is on a corner waiting for jobs Ricochet - ricochet Turn the holy pictures so they face the wall And who can bear to be forgotten And who can bear to be forgotten March of flowers, march of dimes These are the prisons, these are the crimes Men wait for news while thousands are still asleep Dreaming of tramlines factories pieces of machinery Mine shafts things like that March of flowers, march of dimes These are the prisons, these are the crimes Sound of thunder, sound of gold Sound of the devil breaking parole Ricochet - it's not the end of the world Sound of thunder, sound of gold Sound of the devil breaking parole Ricochet - ricochet These are the prisons these are the crimes Teaching life in a violent new way Ricochet - ricochet Turn the holy pictures so they face the wall And who can bear to be forgotten And who can bear to be forgotten March of flowers, march of dimes These are the prisons, these are the crimes Early, before the sun, they struggle off to the gates In their secret fearful places they see their lives Unravelling before them March of flowers - march of dimes These are the prisons, these are the crimes Sound of thunder, sound of gold Sound of the devil breaking parole Ricochet it's not the end of the world But when they get home, damp eyed and weary They smile and crush their children to their heaving chests Making unfulfillable promises For who can bear to be forgotten

Rock 'N' Roll With Me


You always were the one that knew They sold us for the likes of you I always wanted new surroundings A room to rent while the lizards lay crying in the heat Trying to remember who to meet I would take a foxy kind of stand While tens of thousands found me in demand When you rock 'n' roll with me No one else I'd rather be Nobody here can do it for me I'm in tears again When you rock 'n' roll with me Gentle hearts are counted down The queue is out of sight and out of sounds Me, I'm out of breath, but not quite doubting I've found a door which lets me out!

Rubber Band


Rubber Band There's a rubber band that plays tunes out of tune In the library garden Sunday afternoon While a little chappie waves a golden wand Rubber Band In 1910 I was so handsome and so strong My moustache was stiffly waxed and one foot long And I loved a girl while you played teatime tunes Dear Rubber Band, you're playing my tune out of tune, oh Rubber Band Won't you play a haunting theme again to me While I eat my scones and drink my cup of tea The sun is warm but it's a lonely afternoon Oh, play that theme Rubber Band How I wish that I could join your Rubber Band We could play in lively parks throughout the land And one Sunday afternoon, I'd find my love Rubber Band, In the '14-'18 war I went to sea Thought my Sunday love was waiting home for me And now she's married to the leader of the band, oh (spoken) Oh sob... I hope you break your baton

Run


Wish I were a sailor Crossing an azure sea Under leaden skies Under your eyes But I can't see too far With these animal eyes Can't hold my breath Without your voice An' I'm danger-prone I'll be bound I'll be fast as hell Without your touch An' I'll run run run run run An' I'll run run run run run Without your love I'm a goldman I'm a soaring tower And it's cold in here Without your love Trouble in here-trouble out there Mainline problems til you no longer care Get a long-low life-it's duty bound No hope-no life-no you-ah ha And I run run run Run run run Without your love I duck the shots-tilt the world I talk myself crazy-shoot the breeze Shout to live-shoot to kill Double up in pain-I'm on my knees

Running Gun Blues


I count the corpses on my left, I find I'm not so tidy So I better get away, better make it today I've cut twenty-three down since Friday But I can't control it, my face is drawn My instinct still emotes it I slash them cold, I kill them dead I broke the gooks, I cracked their heads I'll bomb them out from under the beds But now I've got the running gun blues It seems the peacefuls stopped the war Left generals squashed and stifled But I'll slip out again tonight Cause they haven't taken back my rifle For I promote oblivion And I'll plug a few civilians I'll slash them cold, I'll kill them dead I'll break them gooks, I'll crack their heads I'll slice them till they're running red But now I've got the running gun blues

Sacrifice Yourself


Some days he feels so empty Just a talking head Married to a Klingon Who could cream him in the press God could detonate him God's the one we pick to curse us And 35 years pass him Like an evening at the circus CHORUS Don't sacrifice yourself Sacrifice yourself Surprise yourself Don't sacrifice yourself There it is, the look, the winner you Once talked of being Give her one last kiss and Dive right out the window screaming No truth decent, It was summer from the waist down She blew the troops right off your feet She tells you she's God's grammy CHORUS Her, the only game in town, a queen of competence Blind in front of mirrors, proving nothings says a lot Wham bam thank you Charlie Vanity is all You wander lonely to the scene A crawling up the walls CHORUS

Saviour Machine


President Joe once had a dream The world held his hand, gave their pledge So he told them his scheme for a Saviour Machine They called it the Prayer, its answer was law Its logic stopped war, gave them food How they adored till it cried in its boredom 'Please don't believe in me, please disagree with me Life is too easy, a plague seems quite feasible now or maybe a war, or I may kill you all Don't let me stay, don't let me stay My logic says burn so send me away Your minds are too green, I despise all I've seen You can't stake your lives on a Saviour Machine I need you flying, and I'll show that dying Is living beyond reason, sacred dimension of time I perceive every sign, I can steal every mind Don't let me stay, don't let me stay My logic says burn so send me away Your minds are too green, I despise all I've seen You can't stake your lives on a Saviour Machine

Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps)


She had an horror of rooms she was tired you can't hide beat When I looked in her eyes they were blue but nobody home She could've been a killer if she didn't walk the way she do, and she do She opened strange doors that we'd never close again She began to wail jealousies scream Waiting at the light know what I mean CHORUS (twice) Scary monsters, super creeps Keep me running, running scared She asked me to stay and I stole her room She asked for my love and I gave her a dangerous mind Now she's stupid in the street and she can't socialise Well I love the little girl and I'll love her till the day she dies She wails Jimmy's guitar sound jealousies scream Waiting at the light know what I mean CHORUS (twice) CHORUS (twice) Oh oh woh-oh Oh, oh-oh-oh oh Oh oh oh, oh oh

Scream Like A Baby


Well I wouldn't buy no merchandise And I wouldn't go to war And I mixed with other colours But the nurse doesn't care And I hide under blankets Or did I run away I really can't remember Last time I saw the light of day But I remember Sam 'cause he was like me CHORUS Scream like a baby Sam was a gun And I never knew his last name And we never had no fun Well they came down hard on the faggots And they came down hard on the street They came down harder on Sam And they all knew he was beat He was thrown into the wagon Blindfolded, chains, and they stomped on us And took away our clothes and things And pumped us full of strange drugs And oh I saw Sam falling Spitting in their eyes But now I lay me down to sleep And now I close my eyes Now I'm learning to be a part of soc-society CHORUS No athletic program, no discipline, no book He just sat in the backseat swearing he'd seek revenge But he jumped into the furnace Singing old songs we loved CHORUS (twice)

See Emily Play


Emily tries but misunderstands She's often inclined to borrow somebody's dreams 'til tomorrow CHORUS There is no other day Let's try it another way You'll lose your mind and play Free games for May See Emily play Soon after dark Emily cries Gazing at trees in sorrow hardly a sound 'til tomorrow CHORUS Put on a gown that touches the ground Float on a river for ever and ever Emily CHORUS

Sell Me A Coat


La la la la la la, la la la la la la la A winter's day, a bitter snowflake on my face My summer girl takes little backward steps away Jack Frost took her hand and left me, Jack Frost ain't so cool CHORUS Sell me a coat with buttons of silver Sell me a coat that's red or gold Sell me a coat with little patch pockets Sell me a coat 'cause I feel cold And when she smiles, the ice forgets to melt away Not like before, her smile was warming yesterday See the trees like silver candy, feel my icy hand CHORUS See my eyes, my window pane See my tears like gentle rain That's the memory of a summer day CHORUS (twice) La la la la la la (repeat)

Seven Years In Tibet

You've been shot in the head And I'm holding your brains" The old woman said So I drink in the shadows Of an evening sky See nothing at all The stars look so special And the snow looks so old The frail form is drifting Beyond the orchid? zone Turn to question the mountain Why pigs can fly It's nothing at all I praise to you Nothing ever goes away I praise to you Nothing ever goes I praise to you I praise to you Nothing ever goes away I praise to you Nothing ever goes I praise to you Nothing ever goes away I praise to you Nothing ever goes, nothing ever goes Nothing

Shades


You gave me a present The paper was blue and green I unwrapped it with pleasure These are the best shades I've ever seen You can be my girlfriend Forever and a day I never thought I was worth much Or that anyone would treat me this way I'm not The kind of guy Who dresses like a king And a really fine pair of shades Means everything And the light that blinds my eyes Shines from you It makes me come in the night It makes me swim with delight I like this pain I like this mirror I like these shades I could have had a problem I might have never followed through The other guys are in trouble They wouldn't listen to a girl like you These shades say something I'll bet they cost a lot I hope I don't break 'em I hope we don't break up I'm not The kind of guy Who dresses like a king And a really fine pair of shades Means everything And the light that blinds my eyes Shines from you It makes me come in the night It makes me swim with delight I like this pain I like this mirror I like these shades I like these shades I like these shades

Shake It


I feel like a sail-boat Adrift on the sea It's a brand new day So when you gonna phone me I could take you to heaven I could spin you to hell But I'll take you to New York It's the place that I know well Sitting on a flagstone talking to a faceless girl Wondering what to say but my eyes do the talking so well I duck and I sway - what's my line Shoot at a full moon - what's my line What's my line - shake it baby Cause love is the answer Love's talking to me I'd scream and I'll fight for you You're better than money We're the kind of people who can shake it if we're feeling blue When I'm feeling disconnected well I sure know what to do Shake it baby

Shapes Of Things


Shapes of things before my eyes Just teach me to despise Will time make man more wise Here within my lonely frame My eyes just hurt my brain But will it seem the same CHORUS (Come tomorrow), will I be older (Come tomorrow), maybe a soldier (Come tomorrow), may I be bolder than today Now the trees are almost green But will they still be seen When time and tide have been Boy into your passing hands Please don't destroy these lands Don't make them desert sands CHORUS Soon I hope that I will find A seed within my mind That won't disgrace my kind

She Shook Me Cold


We met upon a hill, the night was cool and still She sucked my dormant will Mother, she blew my brain, I will go back again My God, she shook my cold I had no time to spare, I grabbed her golden hair And threw her to the ground Father, she craved my head, Oh Lord, the things she said My God, she should be told I was very smart, broke the gentle hearts Of many young virgins I was quick on the ball, left them so lonely They'd just give up trying Then she took my head, smashed it up Kept my young blood rising Crushed me mercilessly, kept me going around So she didn't know I crave her so-o-o I'll give my love in vain, to reach that peak again We met upon a hill Mother, she blew my brain, I will go back again My God, she shook me cold

She's Got Medals


She'd walk through the door and she'd set up the drinks on the house She played a good game of darts, and the men slapped her back And never took her out She wore a trenchcoat khaki Her hobnail boots were full of holes She's got medals Her mother called her Mary, but she changed her name to Tommy, she's a one, oh She went and joined the army, passed the medical Don't ask me how it's done They sent her to the front line Fighting for her country's name She's got medals She got very tired of picking up girls Cleaning her gun and shaving her curls Then the enemy dropped a bomb Survivors there were none People say that when the moon is full and all the stars have gone to bed You can see her ghost but that's a lie because the naughty woman isn't dead She deserted on the previous morning Replaced her uniform with dresses silk and green Called herself Eileen Came to London town Now she's settled down She's got medals

Shopping For Girls


Between the dead ring ash of extreme defense The lonely groups of company boys Snapping pictures of scrawny limbs and toothy grins These are children riding naked on their tourist pals While the hollows that pass for eyes swell from withdrawal And he lies on a mattress in a rat infested room Talking 'bout his family and the cold back home CHORUS Between the dull cold eyes and the mind unstable Noone over here reads the papers pal 'Tween the dull cold eyes and the mind unstable He's a clean trick and he's shopping for girls A small black someone jumps over the crazy white guard Cranking up the volume of a Michael Jackson song CHORUS Where the frangipani scents the air She mouths a word that breaks his stare He grunts his reply in a garrulous croak "That's a mighty big word for a nine year old" CHORUS Shopping for girls, shopping for girls You gaze down into her eyes for a million miles You wanna give her a name and a clean rag doll

Song For Bob Dylan


Oh, hear this Robert Zimmerman I wrote a song for you About a strange young man called Dylan With a voice like sand and glue His words of truthful vengeance They could pin us to the floor Brought a few more people on And put the fear in a whole lot more Ah, Here she comes Here she comes Here she comes again The same old painted lady From the brow of a superbrain She'll scratch this world to pieces As she comes on like a friend But a couple of songs From your old scrapbook Could send her home again You gave your heart to every bedsit room At least a picture on my wall And you sat behind a million pair of eyes And told them how they saw Then we lost your train of thought The paintings are all your own While troubles are rising We'd rather be scared Together than alone Ah, Here she comes Here she comes Here she comes again The same old painted lady From the brow of a superbrain She'll scratch this world to pieces As she comes on like a friend But a couple of songs From your old scrapbook Could send her home again Now hear this Robert Zimmerman Though I don't suppose we'll meet Ask your good friend Dylan If he'd gaze a while down the old street Tell him we've lost his poems So they're writing on the walls Give us back our unity Give us back our family You're every nation's refugee Don't leave us with their sanity Ah, Here she comes Here she comes Here she comes again The same old painted lady From the brow of a superbrain She'll scratch this world to pieces As she comes on like a friend But a couple of songs From your old scrapbook Could send her home again A couple of songs From your old scrapbook Could send her home again Oh, here she comes, here she comes Oh, here she comes, here she comes

Sons Of The Silent Age


Sons of the silent age Stand on platforms blank looks and note books Sit in back rows of city limits Lay in bed coming and going on easy terms Sons of the silent age Pace their rooms like a cell's dimensions Rise for a year or two then make war Search through their one inch thoughts Then decide it couldn't be done Baby, I'll never let you go All I see is all I know Let's find another way down (sons of sound and sons of sound) Baby, baby, I'll never let you down I can't stand another sound Let's take another way in (sons of sound and sons of sound) Sons of the silent age Listen to tracks by Sam Therapy and King Dice Sons of the silent age Pick up in bars and cry only once Sons of the silent age Make love only once but dream and dream They don't walk, they just glide in and out of life They never die, they just go to sleep one day Baby, I won't ever let you go All I see is all I know Let's take another way down (sons of sound and sons of sound) Oh baby, baby, baby, I won't ever let you down I can't stand another sound Let's find another way in (sons of sound and sons of sound) (Sons of sound and sons of sound) Baby, baby, baby, fire away!

Soul Love


Stone love - she kneels before the grave A brave son - who gave his life to see the slogan That hovers between the headstone and her eyes For they penetrate her grieving New love - a boy and girl are talking New words - that only they can share in New words - a love so strong it tears their hearts To sleep - through the fleeting hours of morning Love is careless in its choosing - sweeping over cross a baby Love descends on those defenseless Idiot love will spark the fusion Inspirations have I none - just to touch the flaming dove All I have is my love of love - and love is not loving Soul love - the priest that tastes the word and Told of love - and how my God on high is All love - though reaching up my loneliness evolves By the blindness that surrounds him Love is careless in its choosing - sweeping over cross a baby Love descends on those defenseless Idiot love will spark the fusion Inspirations have I none - just to touch the flaming dove All I have is my love of love - and love is not loving

Sound And Vision


Ahhh... Ahhh... Doo, doo, doo, do-doh Doo, doo, doo, do-doh Don't you wonder sometimes 'Bout sound and vision Blue, blue, electric blue That's the colour of my room Where I will live Blue, blue Pale blinds drawn all day Nothing to do, nothing to say Blue, blue I will sit right down, waiting for the gift of sound and vision And I will sing, waiting for the gift of sound and vision Drifting into my solitude, over my head Don't you wonder sometimes 'Bout sound and vision

Star


Tony went to fight in Belfast Rudi stayed at home to starve I could make it all worthwhile as a rock & roll star Bevan tried to change the nation Sonny wants to turn the world, well he can tell you that he tried CHORUS (x2) I could make a transformation as a rock & roll star So inviting - so enticing to play the part I could play the wild mutation as a rock & roll star (second time: Get it all yeah!) I could do with the money I'm so wiped out with things as they are I'd send my photograph to my honey - and I'd c'mon like a regular superstar I could fall asleep at night as a rock & roll star I could fall in love all right as a rock & roll star

Starman


Didn't know what time it was and the lights were low I leaned back on my radio Some cat was layin' down some rock 'n' roll 'lotta soul, he said Then the loud sound did seem to fade Came back like a slow voice on a wave of phase That weren't no D.J. that was hazy cosmic jive (CHORUS) There's a starman waiting in the sky He'd like to come and meet us But he thinks he'd blow our minds There's a starman waiting in the sky He's told us not to blow it Cause he knows it's all worthwhile He told me: Let the children lose it Let the children use it Let all the children boogie I had to phone someone so I picked on you Hey, that's far out so you heard him too! Switch on the TV we may pick him up on channel two Look out your window I can see his light If we can sparkle he may land tonight Don't tell your poppa or he'll get us locked up in fright CHORUS (x2) La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la (repeat)

Station To Station


The return of the Thin White Duke Throwing darts in lovers' eyes Here are we, one magical moment, such is the stuff From where dreams are woven Bending sound, dredging the ocean, lost in my circle Here am I, flashing no colour Tall in this room overlooking the ocean Here are we, one magical movement from Kether to Malkuth * There are you, you drive like a demon from station to station The return of the Thin White Duke, throwing darts in lovers' eyes The return of the Thin White Duke, throwing darts in lovers' eyes The return of the Thin White Duke, making sure white stays Once there were mountains on mountains And once there were sunbirds to soar with And once I could never be down Ggot to keep searching and searching Oh, what will I be believing and who will connect me with love? Wonder *who*, wonder who, wonder when Have you sought fortune, evasive and shy? Drink to the men who protect you and I Drink, drink, drain your glass, raise your glass high TWO TIMES: It's not the side-effects of the cocaine I'm thinking that it must be love It's too late - to be grateful It's too late - to be late again It's too late - to be hateful The european cannon is here I must be only one in a million I won't let the day pass without her It's too late - to be grateful It's too late - to be late again It's too late - to be hateful The european cannon is here Should I believe that I've been stricken? Does my face show some kind of glow? It's too late - to be grateful It's too late - to be late again It's too late - to be hateful The european cannon is here, yes it's here It's too late It's too late, it's too late, it's too late, it's too late The european cannon is here

Stay


This week dragged past me so slowly The days fell on their knees Maybe I'll take something to help me Hope someone takes after me I guess there's always some change in the weather This time I know we could get it together If I did casually mention tonight That would be crazy tonight Stay - that's what I meant to say or do something But what I never say is stay this time I really meant to so bad this time 'cause you can never really tell when somebody Wants something you want too Heartwrecker, heartwrecker, make me delight Right is so vague when it brings someone new This time tomorrow I'll know what to do I know it's happened to you Stay - that's what I meant to say or do something But what I never say is stay this time I really meant to so bad this time 'cause you can never really tell when somebody Wants something or wants to stay That's what I meant to say or do something But what I never say is stay this time I really meant to so bad this time 'cause you can never really tell when somebody Wants something you want too

Strangers When We Meet


Yooou, yooou, yooou Yooou, yooou, yooou All our friends Now seem so thin and frail Slinky secrets Hotter than the sun No peachy prayers No trendy rechauffé I'm with you So I can't go on CHORUS All my violence Raining tears upon the sheet I'm bewildered/resentful For we're strangers when we meet Blank screen TV Preening ourselves in the snow Forget my name But I'm over you Blended sunrise And it's a dying world Humming Rheingold We scavenge up our clothes CHORUS Cold tired fingers Tapping out your memories Halfway sadness Dazzled by the new Your embrace Was all that I feared That whirling room We trade by vendu Steely resolve Is falling from me My poor soul All bruised passivity All your regrets Ride rough-shod over me I'm so glad That we're strangers when we meet I'm so thankful That we're strangers when we meet I'm in clover For we're strangers when we meet Heel head over But we're strangers when we meet Strangers when we meet (repeat ad. inf.)

Sweet Head


I tried to break away from you From the spics and blacks and the gum you chew Where the posters are torn by the muggin' gangs By the faggy parks and the burnt out vans I've got ninety-nine years of laying in the dark and I'm far too young to lie I've got ninety-nine ways to play my guitar it's going to pay me before I die CHORUS So bob your sweet head Brother Ziggy going to play I'm just about the best you can hear Gonna rock it in your head Shazam! and come ball With my guitar and Mr. ?Final?

Sweet Thing


It's safe in the city, to love in a doorway To wrangle some screens from the door And isn't it me, putting pain in a stranger? Like a portrait in flesh, who trails on a leash Will you see that I'm scared and I'm lonely? So I'll break up my room, and yawn and I Run to the centre of things Where the knowing one says CHORUS Boys, boys, its a sweet thing Boys, boys, its a sweet thing, sweet thing If you want it, boys, get it here, thing 'Cause hope, boys, is a cheap thing, cheap thing I'm glad that you're older than me Makes me feel important and free Does that make you smile, isn't that me? I'm in your way, and I'll steal every moment If his trade is a curse, then I'll bless you And turn to the crossroads, and hamburgers, and CHORUS

Teenage Wildlife


Well, how come you only want tomorrow With its promise of something hard to do A real life adventure worth more than pieces of gold Blue skies above and sun on your arms strength in your stride And hope in those squeaky clean eyes You'll get chilly receptions everywhere you go Blinded with desire - guess the season is on So you train by shadow boxing, search for the truth But it's all, but it's all used up Break open your million dollar weapon And push your luck, still you push, still you push your luck A broken nosed mogul are you One of the new wave boys Same old thing in brand new drag Comes sweeping into view, oh-ooh As ugly as a teenage millionaire Pretending it's a whizz kid world You'll take me aside, and say "Well, David, what shall I do? They wait for me in the hallway" I'll say "Don't ask me, I don't know any hallways" But they move in numbers and they've got me in a corner I feel like a group of one, no-no They can't do this to me I'm not some piece of teenage wildlife Those midwives to history put on their bloody robes The word is that the hunted one is out there on his own You're alone for maybe the last time And you breathe for a long time Then you howl like a wolf in a trap And you daren't look behind You fall to the ground like a leaf from the tree And look up one time at that vast blue sky Scream out aloud as they shoot you down No no, I'm not a piece of teenage wildlife I'm not a piece of teenage wildlife And no one will have seen and no one will confess The fingerprints will prove that you coudn't pass the test There'll be others on the line filing past, who'll whisper low I miss you he really had to go Well each to his own, he was Another piece of teenage wildlife, oh-oh-oh-ohh Another piece of teenage wildlife, oh-oh-oh-ohh Another piece of teenage wild... Wild Wild Wild

That's Motivation

The Bewlay Brothers


And so the story goes they wore the clothes They said the things to make it seem improbable The whale of a lie like they hope it was And the Goodmen Tomorrow Had their feet in the wallow And their heads of Brawn were nicer shorn And how they bought their positions with saccharin and trust And the world was asleep to our latent fuss Sighing, the swirl through the streets Like the crust of the sun The Bewlay Brothers In our Wings that Bark Flashing teeth of Brass Standing tall in the dark Oh, And we were Gone Hanging out with your Dwarf Men We were so turned on By your lack of conclusions I was Stone and he was Wax So he could scream, and still relax, unbelievable And we frightened the small children away And our talk was old and dust would flow Thru our veins and Lo! it was midnight Back o' the kitchen door Like the grim face on the Cathedral floor And the solid book we wrote Cannot be found today And it was Stalking time for the Moonboys The Bewlay Brothers With our backs on the arch In the Devil-may-be-here But He can't sing about that Oh, And we were Gone Real Cool Traders We were so Turned On You thought we were Fakers Now the dress is hung, the ticket pawned The Factor Max that proved the fact Is melted down And woven on the edging of my pillow Now my Brother lays upon the Rocks He could be dead, He could be not He could be You He's Chameleon, Comedian, Corinthian and Caricature "Shooting-up Pie-in-the-Sky" The Bewlay Brothers In the feeble and the Bad The Bewlay Brothers In the Blessed and Cold In the Crutch-hungry Dark Was where we flayed our Mark Oh, and we were Gone Kings of Oblivion We were so Turned On In the Mind-Warp Pavilion Lay me place and bake me Pie I'm starving for me Gravy Leave my shoes, and door unlocked I might just slip away Just for the Day, Hey! Please come Away, Hey! (repeat ad inf.)

The Drowned Girl (Vom Ertrunkenen Madchen)


Once she had drowned and started her slow descent Down the streams to where the great rivers broaden Oh, the open sky chant most magnificent As if it was acting as her body's guardian Wreck and duck weed slowly increased her weight By clasping her in their slimy grip Through her limbs, the cold blooded fishes played Creatures and plant life kept on, thus obstructing her last trip And the sky that same evening grew dark as smoke And its stars through the night kept the brightness still soaring But it quickly grew clear when dawn now broke To see that she got one further morning Once her pallid trunk had rotted beyond repair It happened quite slowly that she gently slipped from God's thoughts First with her face, then her hands, right at the last with her hair Leaving those corpse-choked rivers just one more corpse

The Jean Genie


A small Jean Genie snuck off to the city Strung out on lasers and slash back plazas Ate all your razors while pulling the waiters Talking bout Monroe and walking on Snow White New York's a go-go and everything tastes right Poor little Greenie The Jean Genie lives on his back The Jean Genie loves chimney stacks He's outrageous, he screams and he bawls Jean Genie let yourself go! Sits like a man but he smiles like a reptile She loves him, she loves him but just for a short while She'll scratch in the sand, won't let go his hand He says he's a beautician and sells you nutrition And keeps all your dead hair for making up underwear Poor little Greenie The Jean Genie lives on his back The Jean Genie loves chimney stacks He's outrageous, he screams and he bawls Jean Genie let yourself go!

The London Boys


Cow bell strikes another night Your eyes are heavy and your limbs all ache You've bought some coffee, butter and bread You can't make a thing cause the meter's dead You moved away Hold your folks you're gonna stay away Bright lights, Soho, Wardour street You hope you make friends with the guys that you meet Somebody shows you round Now you've met the London boys Things seem good again, someone cares about you Oh, the first time that you tried a pill You feel a little queasy, decidedly ill You're gonna be sick, but you mustn't lose faith To let yourself down would be a big disgrace With the London boys, with the London boys You're only seventeen, but you think you've grown In the month you've been away from your parents' home You take the pills too much You don't give a damn about that jobs you've got So long as you're with the London boys A London boy, oh a London boy Your flashy clothes are your pride and joy A London boy, a London boy You're crying out loud that you're a London boy You think you've had a lot of fun But you ain't got nothing, you're on the run It's too late now, cause you're out there boy You've got it made with the rest of the toys Now you wish you'd never left your home You've got what you wanted but you're on your own With the London boys Now you've met the London boys (3 times)

The Man Who Sold The World


We passed upon the stair, we spoke of was and when Although I wasn't there, he said I was his friend Which came as some surprise I spoke into his eyes I thought you died alone, a long long time ago Oh no, not me I never lost control You're face to face With The Man Who Sold The World I laughed and shook his hand, and made my way back home I searched for form and land, for years and years I roamed I gazed a gazely stare at all the millions here We must have died along, a long long time ago Who knows? not me We never lost control You're face to face With the Man who Sold the World

The Motel


For we're living in a safety zone Don't be holding back from me We're living from hour to hour down here And we'll take it when we can It's a kind of living which recognizes The death of the odourless man When nothing is vanity nothing's too slow It's not Eden but it's no sham There is no hell There is no shame There is no hell Like an old hell There is no hell And it's lights up, boys Lights up boys Explosion falls upon deaf ears While we're swimming in a sea of sham Living in the shadow of vanity A complex fashion for a simple man And there is no hell And there is no shame And there is no hell Like an old hell There is no hell And the silence flies on its brief flight A razor sharp crap shoot affair And we light up our lives And there's no more of me exploding you Re-exposing you Like everybody do Re-exploding you I don't know what to use Make somebody move Me exploding Me exploding you

The Passenger


I am the passenger And I ride and I ride I ride through the city's backsides I see the stars come Out of the sky Yeah the bright and hollow sky You know it looks So good tonight I am the passenger I stay under glass I look through my Window so bright I see the stars Come out tonight I see the bright And hollow sky Over the city's Ripped backside And everything looks good tonight CHORUS Singing la la la la La-la-la-la La la la la La-la-la-la La la la la La-la-la-la La la Get into the car We'll be the passenger We'll ride through the city tonight We'll see the city's ripped backsides We'll see the bright and Hollow sky We'll see the stars that shine So bright Stars made for us tonight O the passenger How how he rides O the passenger He rides and he rides He looks through his window What does he see He sees the sign and Hollow sky He sees the stars Come out tonight He sees the city's ripped backsides He sees the winding ocean drive And everything was made For you and me All of it was made for You and me - 'cause it Just belongs to you and me So let's take a ride and See what's mine CHORUS O the passenger He rides and he rides He sees things from under glass He looks through his window inside He sees the things he knows are his He sees the bright Hollow sky He sees the city Sleep at night He sees the stars Come out tonight And all of it is yours and mine And all of it is yours and mine So let's ride and ride And ride and ride CHORUS (repeat ad. inf.)

The Prettiest Star


Cold fire, you've got everything but cold fire You will be my rest and peace child I moved up to take a place near you So tired, it's the sky that makes you feel tired It's a trick to make you see wide It can all but break your heat in pieces Staying back in your memory Are the movies in the past How you moved is all it takes To sing a song of when I loved The Prettiest Star One day though it might as well be someday You and I will rise up all the way All because of what you are The Prettiest Star Staying back in your memory Are the movies in the past How you moved is all it takes To sing a song of when I loved The Prettiest Star One day though it might as well be someday You and I will rise up all the way All because of what you are The Prettiest Star

The Secret Life Of Arabia


The secret life of Arabia Secret secrets never seen Secret secrets ever green I was running at the speed of life Through morning's thoughts and fantasies Then I saw your eyes at the cross fades Secret secrets never seen Secret secrets ever green The secret life of Arabia Never here never seen Secret life ever green The secret life of Arabia You must see the movie the sand in my eyes I walk through a desert song when the heroine dies Arabia (secret secret) Arabia (secret) Arabia (secret secret) THREE TIMES: Arabia Arabia (secret secret) The secret life of Arabia Never here never seen Secret life ever green

The Supermen


When all the world was very young And mountain magic heavy hung The supermen would walk in file Guardians of a loveless isle And gloomy browed with superfear their tragic endless lives Could heave nor sigh In solemn, perverse serenity, wondrous beings chained to life Strange games they would play then No death for the perfect men Life rolls into one for them So softly a supergod cries Where all were minds in uni-thought Power weird by mystics taught No pain, no joy, no power too great Colossal strength to grasp a fate Where sad-eyed mermen tossed in slumbers Nightmare dreams no mortal mind could hold A man would tear his brother's flesh, a chance to die To turn to mold. Far out in the red-sky Far out from the sad eyes Strange, mad celebration So softly a supergod cries Far out in the red-sky Far out from the sad eyes Strange, mad celebration So softly a supergod dies

The Wedding Song


These are silver wings These are golden eyes These are floating clouds Angel for life Dreaming alone and I feel that someone Listens to me Angel for life These are silver wings These are golden eyes These are floating clouds Angel for life Heaven is smiling down, heaven's girl in a wedding gown I'm gonna be so good, just like a good boy should I'm gonna change my ways Angel for life Of all the saints alive Don't I feel like a saint alive She's not mine for eternity Though I'll never fly so high I'm smiling I believe in magic Angel for life

The Width Of A Circle


In the corner of the morning in the past I would sit and blame the master first and last All the roads were straight and narrow And the prayers were small and yellow And the rumour spread that I was aging fast Then I ran across a monster who was sleeping By a tree. And I looked and frowned and the monster was me Well, I said hello and I said hello And I asked "Why not?" and I replied "I don't know" So we asked a simple black bird, who was happy as can be And he laughed insane and quipped "KAHLIL GIBRAN" So I cried for all the others till the day was nearly through For I realized that God's a young man too So I said "So long" and I waved "Bye-bye" And I smashed my soul and traded my mind Got laid by a young bordello I was vaguely half asleep For which my reputation swept back home in drag And the moral of this magic spell Negotiates my hide When God did take my logic for a ride (Riding along) Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh He swallowed his pride and puckered his lips And showed me the leather belt round his hips My knees were shaking my cheeks aflame He said "You'll never go down to the Gods again" (Turn around,go back!) He struck the ground a cavern appeared And I smelt the burning pit of fear We crashed a thousand yards below I said "Do it again, do it again" (Turn around,go back!) His nebulous body swayed above His tongue swollen with devil's love The snake and I, a venom high I said "Do it again, do it again" (Turn around, go back!) Breathe, breathe, breathe deeply And I was seething, breathing deeply Spitting sentry, horned and tailed Waiting for you Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

The Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud


Solemn faced The village settles down Undetected by the stars And the hangman plays the mandolin before he goes to sleep And the last thing on his mind Is the Wild Eyed Boy imprisoned 'Neath the covered wooden shaft Folds the rope Into its bag Blows his pipe of smolders Blankets smoke into the room And the day will end for some As the night begins for one Staring through the message in his eyes Lies a solitary son From the mountain called Freecloud Where the eagle dare not fly And the patience in his sigh Gives no indication For the townsmen to decide So the village Dreadful yawns Pronouncing gross diversion As the label for the dog Oh "It's the madness in his eyes" As he breaks the night to cry: "It's really Me Really You And really Me It's so hard for us to really be Really You And really Me You'll lose me though I'm always really free" And the mountain moved its eyes To the world of realize Where the snow had saved a place For the Wild Eyed Boy from Freecloud And the women once proud Clutched the heart of the crowd As theboulders smashed down from the mountain's hand And the Magic in the stare Of the Wild Eyed Boy said "Stop, Freecloud They won't think to cut me down" But the cottages fell Like a playing card hell And the tears on the face Of the Wise Boy Came tumbling down To the rumbling ground And the missionary mystic of peace/love Stumbled to cry among the clouds Kicking back the pebbles From the Freecloud mountain Track.

There Is A Happy Land

Sometimes, sometimes I feel blue(?) When I'm, when I'm feeling good(?) All I, all I have to do Is think of you, you, you And the things you do, do, do I don't know the reason That you've got me this way But when I first met you Oh happy day I'll make my point here I just gotta say I love you, you, you And the things you do, do, do Well if the lord is my shepherd And Peter was a saint It's kind of obvious to me Big guy, a ???? you ain't But if you turned at the ????

This Is Not America


This is not America, sha la la la la A little piece of you The little peace in me Will die [This is not a miracle] For this is not America Blossom fails to bloom This season Promise not to stare Too long [This is not America] For this is not the miracle There was a time A storm that blew so pure For this could be the biggest sky And I could have The faintest idea [For this is not America, sha la la la la, sha la la la la, sha la la la la This is not america, no, this is not, sha la la la la] Snowman melting From the inside Falcon spirals To the ground [This could be the biggest sky] So bloody red Tomorrow's clouds A little piece of you The little piece in me Will die [This could be a miracle] For this is not America There was a time A wind that blew so young For this could be the biggest sky And I could have the faintest idea [For this is not America, sha la la la la, sha la la la la, sha la la la la This is not america, no, this is not, sha la la la This is not america, no, this is not This is not america, no, this is not, sha la la la]

Thru These Architect's Eyes


(?? - bringing the golden, it's the golden, it's the golden??) Stomping along on this big Phillip Johnson Is delay just wasting my time Looking across at Richard Rogers Scheming dreams to blow both their minds It's difficult you see To give up baby To leave a job When you know You know the money's from day to day CHORUS All the majesty of a city landscape All the soaring days in our lives All the concrete dreams in my mind's eye All the joy I see Thru these architect's eyes Cold winter bleeds on the girders of Babel This stone boy watching the crawling land Rings of flesh and the towers of iron The steaming caves and the rocks and the sand Stomping along on this big Phillip Johnson Is delay just wasting my time It's difficult you see To give up baby These summer scumholes This goddamned starving life CHORUS It's difficult you see It's difficult you see CHORUS

Time


Time - He's waiting in the wings He speaks of senseless things His script is you and me boys Time - He flexes like a whore Falls wanking to the floor His trick is you and me, boy Time - In Quaaludes and red wine Demanding Billy Dolls And other friends of mine Take your time The sniper in the brain, regurgitating drain Incestuous and vain, and many other last names I look at my watch it say 9:25 and I think "Oh God I'm still alive" We should be on by now We should be on by now La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la (repeat) You - are not a victim You - just scream with boredom You - are not evicting time Chimes - Goddamn, you're looking old You'll freeze and catch a cold 'Cause you've left your coat behind Take your time Breaking up is hard, but keeping dark is hateful I had so many dreams, I had so many breakthroughs But you, my love, were kind, but love has left you dreamless The door to dreams was closed. Your park was real dreamless Perhaps you're smiling now, smiling through this darkness But all I had to give was the guilt for dreaming We should be on by now (x5) La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la (repeat) Yeah, time!

Time Will Crawl


I've never sailed on a sea I would not challenge a giant I could not take on the church Time will crawl Till the 21st century lose I know a government man He was as blind as the moon He saw the sun in the night He took a top-gun pilot He made him fly thru a hole Till he grew real old And he never came down He just flew till he burst Time will crawl till our mouths run dry Time will crawl till our feet grow small Time will crawl till our tails fall off Time will crawl till the 21st century lose I saw a black black stream Full of white eyed fish And a drowning man With no eyes at all I felt a warm warm breeze That melted metal and steel I got a bad migraine That lasted three long years And the pills that I took Made my fingers disappear Time will crawl, time will crawl Time will crawl Till the 21st century lose You were a talented child You came to live in our town We never bothered to scream When your mask came off We only smelt the gas As we lay down to sleep Time will crawl and our heads bowed down Time will crawl and our eyes fall out Time will crawl and the streets run red Time will crawl till the 21st century lose Time will crawl and our mouths run dry Time will crawl and our feet grow small Time will crawl and our tails fall off Time will crawl till the 21st century lose Time will crawl and our heads bowed down Time will crawl and our eyes fall out Time will crawl and the streets run red Time will crawl till the 21st century lose For the crazy child We'll give every life For the crackpot notion

Tin Machine


Tin machine Tin machine Take me anywhere somewhere without alcohol Or goons with muddy hair Tin machine Tin machine Tin machine Tin machine The zombies that I pass The guy that beats his baby up The preachers and their past Tin machine Tin machine Tin machine Baby doll Baby doll Clarity and power There's more than money moving here There's mindless maggot glare Working horrors-humping Tories Spittle on their chins Carving up my children's future Read 'em pal and grin Raging raging raging Burning in my room C'mon and get a good idea C'mon and get it soon I'm waiting on the fire escape I'm not exactly well I'm neither red nor black nor white I'm grey and blown to hell Tin machine Tin machine Make some new computer thing That puts me on the moon Not this psycho-time-bomb planet Poised to meet its maker Shake a leg Tin machine Tin machine One sick deathless duty to remain endangered species They reach right out to touch someone Then wash their crusty hands Tin machine Tin machine Baby doll Baby doll Blue suede tuneless wonders Mass confusion-faithless blues Night that spews out watchmen Mopping up another fortune Fractured words and branca-sonic Anger trapped behind locked doors And right between the eyes

Tiny Girls


Well the day begins You don't want to live 'Cause you can't believe In the one you're with 'Cause you know her tricks And you know her past When she makes a face You just have to laugh And you feel like such a know-it-all When you only want just a tiny girl And you hope she'll sing So you turn around Toward the tiny girls Who have got no tricks Who have got no past Yea that's what you think And you hope she'll sing But she sings of greed Like a young banshee And she wants for this And she wants for that What did you think

Tired Of My Life


I don't know why, but I'm tired of my mind Pain is over me, over loading I don't know why, but you're trying to be kind Take off your silver smile, throw your head back And cry, ahhh... I don't believe, but I'm trying to decide Which game is best for me, which can I bear You don't perceive, so I'm leading you away Home where you've never been, non-returning So cry, ahhh... Throw a rock upon a road, and it breaks into pieces Shake a branch upon the snow, the sun is defeated Pull the curtains on yesterday, and it seems so much later Put a bullet in my brain, and I make all the papers Ahhh... I don't know why, but I'm tired of my life The clouds are in my eyes, overtaking Ahhh..."

Too Dizzy


There's too much talking for a night drive Too much mist in front of my eyes I'm trying not to lose control But you're just pushin' for a fight You look trapped, turn the radio on Too much smoke, air conditioning gone But I'm helpless in love with you But you're just looking for a break Is it love or is it what Who's this guy I'm gonna blow away What kind of love is he giving you I'm-a-dizzy's what I'm trying to say Too Dizzy-You can't have a lover Too Dizzy-It's me and no other I'm a bad loser-I'm-a-shakin' in anger Too Dizzy-you can't have no lover 2nd time: Don't come any harder Don't come any closer You can go on dreaming every night But I'm not letting you out of my sight I'm-a-ten times the man than any guy around But you're just itchin'-twitchin'-itchin' for a break There's too much talking for a night drive Too much mist in front of my eyes But I'm helpless in love with you But you're just looking for a break Is it love or is it what...

I've seen the city I took the next flight for Borneo They say it's pretty I like the tee shirts in Borneo Some wear Bob Marley Others in Playboy or Duvalier Make the last plane come Let me rise through the cloudy above with a book on Borneo Strangers come and go It's such a waste of time Problems far behind Another day But even in springtime It's a rich slice of life So send me a letter I'll reply with a postcard That dusky mulatto In nylons and tattoos Hot juice in coke bottles We dance in the sand Well, they twirl and they tumble Yes, they twirl and they tumble Well, I'll twirl and I'll tumble I've been to Leon's He's got nine daughters And a stereo They say that Leon Watches from the tree tops in Borneo When the road is mud Everything stops with a thud That's the way it goes down yonder in Borneo Far beneath his mansion There's an open drain Sending all the sewage down the hill But when the general shows movies No one hesitates To sneak from the jungle They laugh and they mumble Enjoying the show And that dusky mulatto Hot juice in coke bottles In Blue Jeans and tattoos Well, they twirl and they tumble Yes, they twirl and they tumble Well, I'll twirl and I'll tumble I like the free world They say it's pretty This time of year They tumble and twirl They tumble and twirl I'll tumble and twirl They twirl and they tumble They twirl and they tumble I like the free world I like the free world They say it's pretty This time of year This time of year

Unwashed and Somewhat Slightly Dazed


Spy, spy, pretty girl I see you see me through your window Don't turn your nose up Well, you can if you need to, you won't be the first or last It must strain you to look down so far from your father's house And I know what a louse like me in his house could do for you I'm the Cream Of the Great Utopia Dream And you're the gleam In the depths of your banker's spleen I'm a phallus in pigtails And there's blood on my nose And my tissue is rotting Where the rats chew my bones And my eye sockets empty See nothing but pain I keep having this brainstorm About twelve times a day So now, you could spend the morning walking with me, quite amazed As I'm Unwashed and Somewhat Slightly Dazed I got eyes in my backside That see electric tomatoes On credit card rye bread There are children in washrooms Holding hands with a queen And my heads full of murders Where only killers scream So now you ould spend the morning talking with me quite amazed Look out, I'm raving mad and Somewhat Slightly Dazed Now you run from your window To the porcelain bowl And you're sick from your ears To the red parquet floor And the Braque on the wall Slides down your front And eats through your belly It's very catchhing So now, you should spend the mornings lying to your father quite amazed About the strange Unwashed and Happily Slightly Dazed.

Watch That Man


Shakey threw a party that lasted all night Everybody drank a lot of something nice There was an old fashioned band of married men Looking up to me for encouragement - it was so-so The ladies looked bad but the music was sad No one took their eyes off Lorraine She shimmered and she strolled like a Chicago moll Her feathers looked better and better - it was so-so Yea! it was time to unfreeze When the Reverend Alabaster danced on his knees Slam! so it wasn't a game Cracking all the mirrors in shame CHORUS Watch that man! Oh honey, watch that man He talks like a jerk but he could eat you with a fork and spoon Watch that man! Oh honey, watch that man He walks like a jerk But he's only taking care of the room Must be in tune A Benny Goodman fan painted holes in his hands So Shakey hung him up to dry The pundits were hoking the manholes were smoking And every bottle battled with the reason why The girl on the phone wouldn't leave me alone A throw back from someone's LP A lemon in a bag played the Tiger Rag And the bodies on the screen stopped bleeding Yeah! I was shaking like a leaf For I couldn't understand the conversation Yeah! I ran to the street, looking for information CHORUS Watch that man (repeat ad inf.)

We Are Hungry Men


(spoken) Here is the news According to the latest world population survey The figures have reached danger point, my god London 15 million 75 thousand New York 80 million Paris 15 million and 30 China 1000 million Billington-Spa: lots My studies included suffragy I formed my own society to study the power of fecundity The world will overpopulate Unless you claim infertility So who will buy a drink for me, your messiah We are not your friends We don't give a damn for what you're saying We're here to live our lives I propose to give the pill Free of charge to those that feel That they are not infertible The crops of few, the cattle gun There's only one way to linger on So who will buy a drink for me, your messiah We are not your friends We don't give a damn for what you're saying We're here to live our lives (spoken) Achtung, achtung, these are your orders Anyone found guilty of consuming more than their allotted amount of air Will be slaughtered and cremated Only one cubic foot of air is... I have prepared a document, legalising mass abortion We will turn a blind eye to infanticide We are not your friends We don't give a damn for what you're saying We're here to live our lives You don't seem to hear me clear Do I talk above your sphere? Let me explain my project dear Show you how I'll save the world Or let it die within the year Why do you look that way at me, your messiah We are not your friends We don't give a damn for what you're saying We're here to live our lives We are hungry men We don't give a damn for what you're saying We're here to eat you

We Are The Dead


Something kind of hit me today I looked at you and wondered if you saw things my way People will hold us to blame It hit me today, it hit me today We're taking it hard all the time Why don't we pass it by? Just reply, you've changed your mind We're fighting with the eyes of the blind Taking it hard, taking it hard Yet now We feel that we are paper, choking on you nightly They tell me "Son, we want you, be elusive, but don't walk far" For we're breaking in the new boys, deceive your next of kin For you're dancing where the dogs decay, defecating ecstasy You're just an ally of the leecher Locator for the virgin King, but I love you in your fuck-me pumps And your nimble dress that trails Oh, dress yourself, my urchin one, for I hear them on the rails Because of all we've seen, because of all we've said We are the dead One thing kind of touched me today I looked at you and counted all the times we had laid Pressing our love through the night Knowing it's right, knowing it's right Now I'm hoping some one will care Living on the breath of a hope to be shared Trusting on the sons of our love That someone will care, someone will care But now We're today's scrambled creatures, locked in tomorrow's double feature Heaven's on the pillow, its silence competes with hell It's a twenty-four hour service, guaranteed to make you tell And the streets are full of press men Bent on getting hung and buried And the legendary curtains are drawn 'round Baby Bankrupt Who sucks you while you're sleeping It's the theater of financiers Count them, fifty 'round a table White and dressed to kill Oh caress yourself, my juicy For my hands have all but withered Oh dress yourself my urchin one, for I hear them on the stairs Because of all we've seen, because of all we've said We are the dead We are the dead We are the dead

We Prick You

You're just a little girl with grey eyes Never mind, say something Wait until the crowd cries Oh, wait until the crowd cries You're just a little girl with grey eyes So deep in your room, you never leave your room Something deep inside of me - yearning deep inside of me Talking through the gloom What in the world can you do What in the world can you do I'm in the mood for your love For your love For your love Oh I'm just a little bit afraid of you Cause love won't make you cry But, wait until the crowd goes Oh, Wait until the crowd goes I'm just a little bit afraid of you So deep in your room, you never leave your room Something deep inside of me - yearning deep inside of me Talking through the gloom What in the world can I do What in the world can I do I'm in the mood for your love For your love For your love Oh, what you gonna say? Oh, what you gonna do? Ah, what you gonna be?

When I Live My Dream


When I live my dream, I'll take you with me Riding on a golden horse We'll live within my castle, with people there to serve you Happy at the sound of your voice Baby, I'll slay a dragon for you Or banish wicked giants from the land But you will find, that nothing in my dream can hurt you We will only love each other as forever When I live my dream When I live my dream, I'll forgive the things you've told me And the empty man you left behind It's a broken heart that dreams, it's a broken heart you left me Only love can live in my dream I'll wish, and the thunder clouds will vanish Wish, and the storm will fade away Wish again, and you will stand before me while the sky will paint an overture And trees will play the rhythm of my dream When I live my dream, please be there to meet me Let me be the one to understand When I live my dream, I'll forget the hurt you gave me Then we can live in our new land Till the day my dream cascades around me I'm content to let you pass me by Till that day, you'll run to many other men But let them know it's just for now Tell them that I've got a dream And tell them you're the starring role Tell them I'm a dreaming kind of guy And I'm going to make my dream Tell them I will live my dream Tell them they can laugh at me But don't forget your date with me When I live my dream

When I'm Five


When I'm five I will wash my face and hands all by myself When I'm five I will chew and spit tabacco, like my grandfather Jones 'Cause I'm only four and five is far away When I'm five I will read the magazines in mummy's drawer When I'm five I will wall behind the soldiers in the May Day parade 'Cause I'm only four and grown-ups walk too fast Yesterday was horrid day, 'cause Raymond kicked my shin And mummy says if I am good, she'll let me go to school in August Daddy shouted loud at mummy and I dropped my toast at breakfast And I laughed when Bonzo licked my face, because it tickled I wonder why my daddy cries and how I wish that I was nearly five When I'm five I will catch a butterfly and eat it and I won't be sick When I'm five I will jump in puddles, laugh in church and marry my mum And I'll let my daddy do the washing-up If I close one eye, the people on that side can't see me I get headaches in the morning and I rode on Freddie's tricycle And everywhere was funny, when I ran down to the sweetshop Then I fell and bleeded-up my knee and everybody soppied me I saw a photograph of Jesus and I asked him if he'd make me five I saw a photograph of Jesus and I asked him if he'd make me five When I'm five When I'm five When I'm... oah...

When The Wind Blows


So long child, I'm on my way And after all is done, after all is done Don't be down, it's all in the past Though you may be afraid So long child, it's awful dark And I've never felt the sun I daren't to think of when When the wind blows When the wind blows When the wind blows Life burns a savage wound, angry and wrong Trusting a twisted word, you'll run, run away You'll take him home You'll spit and taunt him But they won't believe you No matter what you'll say So long child, it's awful dark I never felt the sun I daren't to think of when When the wind blows When the wind blows

Where Have All The Good Times Gone


In my life I've never stopped to worry about a thing Opened up and shouted out and never tried to see Wondering if I'd done wrong Will this depression last for long CHORUS Won't you tell me Where have all the good times gone Where have all the good times gone Where have all the good times gone Once we had an easy ride and always felt the same Time was on our side and I had everything to gain Let it be like yesterday Please let me have happy days Ma and Pa looked back on all the things they used to do Didn't have no money and they always told the truth Daddy didn't have no toys And Mummy didn't need no boys CHORUS Yesterday was such an easy game for you to play But let's face it things are so much easier today Guess you need some bringing down Get your feet back on the ground CHORUS

Who Can I Be Now


Everybody's raised in blindness Everybody knows it's true Everybody feels that everything is real Anybody's point of view Nobody can break their bondage Everyone can feel their chains But even in my life I knew you found your sight And nothing would be quite the same Please help me Who can I be now? You found me Who can I be? Fell apart, you found me Now can I be now? You found me Now can I be real? Can I be real? (somebody real) Hmmm, if it's all a vast creation Putting on a face that's new Someone has to see, a role for him and me Someone might as well be you Up in heaven, any angel Writes a special game to play Oh-oh, could we, could we make a star to snatch their angels, boy Played your role for every day Please help me Who can I be now? You found me Who can I be? Fell apart, you found me Now can I be now? You found me Now can I be real? Can I be? Who can I be now? You found me Who can I be? Fell upon, you found me Now can I be now?

Within You


How you turned my world, you precious thing You starve and near exhaust me Everything I've done, I've done for you I move the stars for no one You've run so long You've run so far Your eyes can be so cruel Just as I can be so cruel Though I do believe in you Yes I do Live without the sunlight Love without your heartbeat I, I can't live within you I can't live within you (sigh) I, I can't live within you

Without You


Just when I'm ready to throw in my hand Just when the best things in life are gone I look into your eyes There's no smoke without fire You're exactly who I want to be with Without you What would I do And when I'm willing to call it a day Just when I won't take another chance I hold your hand There's no smoke without fire Woman I love you Without you What would I do

Word On A Wing


In this age of grand illusion you walked into my life out of my dreams I don't need another change, still you forced away into my scheme of things You say we're growing, growing heart and soul In this age of grand illusion you walked into my life out of my dreams Sweet name, you're born once again for me Sweet name, you're born once again for me Oh sweet name, I call you again, you're born once again for me Just because I believe don't mean I don't think as well Don't have to question everything in heaven or hell CHORUS Lord, I kneel and offer you my word on a wing And I'm trying hard to fit among your scheme of things It's safer than a strange land, but I still care for myself And I don't stand in my own light Lord, lord, my prayer flies like a word on a wing My prayer flies like a word on a wing Does my prayer fit in with your scheme of things? In this age of grand illusion you walked into my life out of my dreams Sweet name, you're born once again for me just as long as I can see, I'll never stop this vision flowing I look twice and you're still flowing Just as long as I can walk I'll walk beside you, I'm alive in you Sweet name, you're born once again for me And I'm ready to shape the scheme of things Ooh, ready to shape the scheme of things (5 times) Ooh... Lord, I kneel and offer you my word on a wing And I'm trying hard to fit among your scheme of things It's safer than a strange land, but I still care for myself And I don't stand in my own light Lord, lord, my prayer flies like a word on a wing And I'm trying hard to fit among your scheme of things It's safer than a strange land, but I still care for myself And I don't stand in my own light Lord, lord, my prayer flies like a word on a wing My prayer flies like a word on a wing Does my prayer fit in with your scheme of things?

Working Class Hero


As soon as you're born they make you feel small By giving you no time instead of it all Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all A working class hero is something to be A working class hero is something to be They hurt you at home and they hit you at school They hate you if your clever and they despise a fool Till you're so fucking crazy you can't fallow their rules A working class hero is something to be A working class hero is something to be When they've tortured and scared you for 20 odd years Then they expect you to pick a career When you can't really function you're so full of fear A working class hero is something to be A working class hero is something to be Keep you doped wit religion and sex and TV And you think you're so clever and classless and free But you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see A working class hero is something to be A working class hero is something to be There's room at the top they are telling you still But first you must learn how to smile as you kill If you want to be like the folks on the hill A working class hero is something to be If you want to be a hero just follow me If you want to be a hero well just follow me

Yassassin


CHORUS Yassassin - I'm not a moody guy Yassassin - I walk without a sound Yassassin - Just a working man, no judge of men Yassassin - But such a life I've never known We came from the farmlands To live in this city We walked proud and lustful In this resonant world You want to fight But I don't want to leave Or drift away CHORUS Look at this - no second glances Look at this - no value of love Look at this - just sun and steel Look at this - then look at us If there's someone in charge Then listen to me Don't say nothing's wrong 'Cause I've got a love And she's afeared You want to fight But I don't want to leave Or drift away CHORUS Yassassin, Yassassin, Yassassin

You've Been Around


Where's the pain in the violent night? I'm depressed by the grin I stay over many years I should have thought of that For the love of the money Like a black-hearted violin It's the nature of being It's too many lonely nights I can't tell bad from wrong I can't pass you by Two exchanging You've been around But you've changed me Where the flesh meets the spirit world Where the traffic is thin I slip from a vacant view I should have thought of that And the sound of tomorrow Like a black-hearted vile thing Like the silence of tension It's too many lonely nights I can't tell good from bad I can't pass you by Too exchanging You've been around But you've changed me You've been around Can't pass you by You've been around But you've changed me Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-change! Too exchanging You've been around but you've changed me You've been around can't pass you by

You've Got A Habit Of Leaving


You've got a habit of leaving me And you've got a habit of deserting me Sometimes I cry Sometimes I'm so sad Sometimes I'm so glad, so glad You could go on if you wanted to, wanted to, wanted to Wanted to Oh If you wanted to, yeah Oh huh You've got a habit of leaving me And you've got a habit of deserting me Sometimes I cry Sometimes I'm so sad Sometimes I'm so glad, so glad You could go on if you wanted to, wanted, wanted to Wanted to, ooh yeah, yeah Oh, if you wanted to If you wanted to, yeah, yeah Wanted to

Young Americans


They pulled in just behind the fridge He lays her down, he frowns "Gee my life's a funny thing, am I still too young?" He kissed her then and there She took his ring, took his babies It took him minutes, took her nowhere Heaven knows, she'd have taken anything, but CHORUS (SHE) All night She wants the young American Young American, young American, she wants the young American All right She wants the young American Scanning life through the picture window She finds the slinky vagabond He coughs as he passes her Ford Mustang, but Heaven forbid, she'll take anything But the freak, and his type, all for nothing He misses a step and cuts his hand, but Showing nothing, he swoops like a song She cries "Where have all Papa's heroes gone?" CHORUS (SHE) All the way from Washington Her bread-winner begs off the bathroom floor "We live for just these twenty years Do we have to die for the fifty more?" CHORUS (HE) All night He wants the young American Young American, young American, he wants the young American All right He wants the young American Do you remember, your President Nixon? Do you remember, the bills you have to pay Or even yesterday? Have you have been an un-American? Just you and your idol singing falsetto 'bout Leather, leather everywhere, and Not a myth left from the ghetto Well, well, well, would you carry a razor In case, just in case of depression? Sit on your hands on a bus of survivors Blushing at all the afro-Sheilas Ain't that close to love? Well, ain't that poster love? Well, it ain't that Barbie doll Her heart's been broken just like you have CHORUS (YOU) All night You want the young American Young American, young American, you want the young American All right You want the young American You ain't a pimp and you ain't a hustler A pimp's got a Cadi and a lady got a Chrysler Black's got respect, and white's got his soul train Mama's got cramps, and look at your hands ache (I heard the news today, oh boy) I got a suite and you got defeat Ain't there a man you can say no more? And, ain't there a woman I can sock on the jaw? And, ain't there a child I can hold without judging? Ain't there a pen that will write before they die? Ain't you proud that you've still got faces? Ain't there one damn song that can make me break down and cry? CHORUS (I) (repeat 3 times) All night I want the young American Young American, young American, I want the young American All right I want the young American

Zeroes


Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah You've arrived in the land of a thousand different names Where the fabulous sons have crashed their planes in flames Now tomorrow is back claiming redemption is on your heels And a toothless past is asking you how it feels And me my little red Corvette has driven by My fair weather heart has fallen in My rainy day girl is feeling down And she tells me that the world is spinning round I say the dream was all for you You're nobody else Tonight the Zeroes were singing for you Yeah Hi, can I walk you home again today Gotta get forgive and forget hey-hey Something good is happening I don't know what it is Don't you know we're back on trial again today And it's breaking wine for you Hell it's only 'cause you're true Someone outtimed my heart Stopping and preaching and letting love in You are my moon, you are my sun Heaven knows what you are Tonight the Zeroes are singing for you Yes they were Tonight the Zeroes were singing for you Tonight the Zeroes were singing for you Doesn't matter what you try to do Doesn't matter what you try to do Doesn't matter where you try to go Doesn't matter who we really are

Ziggy Stardust


Ziggy played guitar, jamming good with Weird and Gilly The spiders from Mars. He played it left hand But made it too far Became the special man, then we were Ziggy's band Ziggy really sang, screwed up eyes and screwed down hairdo Like some cat from Japan, he could lick 'em by smiling He could leave 'em to hang Came on so loaded man, well hung and snow white tan. So where were the spiders while the fly tried to break our balls Just the beer light to guide us, So we bitched about his fans and should we crush his sweet hands? Ziggy played for time, jiving us that we were voodoo The kids were just crass, he was the nazz With God given ass He took it all too far but boy could he play guitar Making love with his ego Ziggy sucked up into his mind Like a leper messiah When the kids had killed the man I had to break up the band. Oh yeah Ooooooo Ziggy played guitaarrrrrr

1.1. Modern Love


I catch a paper boy But things don't really change I'm standing in the wind But I never wave bye bye But I try I try There's no sign of life It's just the power to charm I'm lying in the rain But I never wave bye bye But I try I try Never gonna fall for Modern love walks beside me Modern love walks on by Modern love gets me to the churck on time Churck on time terrafies me Churck on time makes me party Churck on time puts my trust in God and man God and man no confessions God and man no religion God and man don't believe in modern love

1.2. China Girl


I could escape this feeling with my china girl I feel a wreck without my little china girl I hear her heart's beating loud as thunder Saw they stars crashing I'm a mess without my little china girl Wake up mornings where's my little china girl I hear her heart's beating loud as thunder Saw they stars crashing down I feel a-tragic like I'm marlon brando When I look at my china girl I could pretend that nothing really meant too much When I look at my china girl I stumble into town just like a sacred cow Visions of swasticas in my head Plans for everyone It's in the white of my eyes My little chine girl You shouldn't mess with me I'll ruin everything you are I'll give you television I'll give you eyes of blue I'll give you man who wants to rule the world And when I get excited My little chine girl says Oh baby just you shut your mouth She says ... Sh-sh-shhh.

1.3. Let's Dance


Let's dance put on your red shoes and dance the blues Let's dance to the songs they're playin' on the radio Let's sway while colour lights up your face Let's sway sway through the crowd to an empty space If you say run, I'll run with you If you say hide, we'll hide Because my love for you Would break my heart in two If you should fall Into my arms And tremble like flower Let's dance for fear your grace should fall Let's dance for fear tonight is all Let's sway you could look into my eyes Let's sway under the moonlight, this serious moonlight If you say run, I'll run with you If you say hide, we'll hide Because my love for you Would break my heart in two If you should fall Into my arms And tremble like flower Let's dance put on your red shoes and dance the blues Let's dance to the songs they're playin' on the radio Let's sway you could look into my eyes Let's sway under the moonlight, this serious moonlight

1.4. Without You


Just when I'm ready to throw in my hand Just when the best things in life are gone I look into your eyes There's no smoke without fire You're exactly who I want to be with Without you What would I do And when I'm willing to call it a day Just when I won't take another chance I hold your hand There's no smoke without fire Woman I love you Without you What would I do.

1.5. Ricochet


Like weeds on a rockface waiting for the scythe ricochet - ricochet The world is on a corner waiting for jobs ricochet - ricochet Turn the holy pictures so they face the wall And who can bear to be forgotten And who can bear to be forgotten March of flowers - march of Dimes These are the prisons, these are the crimes Men wait for news while thousands are still asleep Dreaming of tramlines factories pieces of machinery Mine shafts, things like that March of flowers - march of dimes These are the prisons, these are the crimes Sound of thunder, sound of gold Sound of the devil breaking parol Ricochet - it's not the end of the world Sound of thunder, sound of gold Sound of the devil breaking parol. Ricochet - ricochet These are the prisons, there are the creames Teaching life in a violent new way Ricochet - ricochet Turn the Holy pictures so they face the wall And who can bear to be forgotten And who can bear to be forgotten March of flowers march of dimes These are the prisons these are the crimes Early, before the sun, they struggle off to the gates In their secret fearful places they see their lives Unravelling before them March of flowers, march of dimes These are the prisons, these are the crimes Sound of thunder sound of gold Sound of the devil breaking parol Ricochet it's not the end of the world But when they get home damp eyed and weary They smile & crush their children to their heaving chesls Making unfulfillable promises For who can bear to be forgotten

1.6. Criminal World


You never told me of your other faces You were the widow of a wild cat And now I know about your special kisses And I know you know where that's at I guess I recognize your destination I see beneath your make up What you want is sort of separation This is no ordinary This is no ordinary (Ah Ah Ah) What a criminal world The boys are like baby-faced girls What a criminal world She'll show you where to shoot your gun What a typical mother son The only thing that she enjoys Is a criminal world Where the girls are like baby-faced boys You've got a very heavy reputation But no one knows about your low-life I know a way to found a situation And hold a candle to your high light disquise You cought me kneeling at your sister's door I'm well aware just what you're looking for I am no ordinary I am no ordinary (Ah, Ah, Ah) What a criminal world The boys are like baby-faced girls What a criminal world She'll show you where to shoot your gun What a typical mother son The only thing that she enjoys Is a criminal world Where the girls are like baby-faced boys

1.7. Cat People


See the eyes so green I can sfare for the thousand years Colder than the moon It's been so long And I've been putting out fire With gasoline See the eyes so red Red like jungle burning bright Those who feel me near Pull the blinds and change their minds It's been so long Still the pulsing night A plague I call heartbeat Just be still with me Ya wouldn't believe what I've been thru You've been so long Well it's been so long And I've been putting out fire with gasoline putting out fire with gasoline See the tears so blue An ageless heart that can never mend These tears can never dry A judgement made can never bend See the eyes so green I can stare for a thousand years Just be still with me You've wouldn't believe what I've been thru You've been so long Well it's been so long And I've been putting out fire with gasoline putting out fire with gasoline

1.8. Shake It


I feel like a seal-boat Adrift on the sea It's a brand new day So when you gonna phone me I could take you to heaven I could take you to hell But I take you to New York It's the place that I know well Sitting on a flagstone talking to a faceless girl Wondering what to say but my eyes do the talking so well I duck and I sway - what's my line Shoot at a full moon - what's my line What's my line - Shake it baby Couse love is the answer Love's talking to me I'd scream and I'll fight for you You're better than money Where the kind of people who can shake it we're feeling blue When I'm feeling disconnected well I sure know to do Shake it baby.
