WE'RE ALL ALONE

 

Outside the rain begins and it may never end

So cry no more on the shore of dreams

We'll take us out to sea

Forever more, forever more

 

Close your eyes and dream

And you can be with me

'Neath the waves through the caves of hours

Long forgotten now

We're all alone, we're all alone

 

Close the window, calm the light

And it will be all right

No need to bother now

Let it out, let it all begin

Learn how to pretend

 

Once a story's told it can't help but grow old

Roses do, lovers too, so cast your seasons to the winds

And hold me dear, oh hold me dear

 

Close the window, calm the light

And it will be all right

No need to bother now

Let it all, let it all begin

All's forgotten now

We're all alone, we're all alone

 

Close the window, calm the light

And it will be all right

No need to bother now

Let it out, let it all begin

Throw it to the wind, my love

Hold me dear

 

MANY RIVERS TO CROSS   

 

Many rivers to cross

But I can't seem to find my way over

Wandering I am lost

As I travel along the white cliffs of Dover

 

Many rivers to cross

And it's only my will that keeps me alive

I've been kicked, washed up for years

And I merely survive because of my pride

 

And this loneliness won't leave me alone

It's such a drag to be on your own

My woman left me and she did not say goodbye

Well, I guess I'll just have to cry

 

There are many rivers to cross

But just where to begin

I'm playing for time

There have been times I found myself

Thinking of committing

Some dreadful crime

 

(Many rivers to cross)

But I can't seem to find my way over

(Wandering, I am lost)

As I travel along the white cliffs of Dover

Oooh, oooh, oooh

Oooh, oooh, oooh

Oooh, oooh, oooh

Oooh, oooh, oooh

 

 

FIRST DAY

 

Seen it running through your life

You'd think someone’d let you see

Knowing what you know

You should know by now

No one's gonna set you free

No one's gonna set you free

 

Heading through a wind storm

Wondering why you were born

Doing all the things that you try

Standing on the outside

Looking at the inside

Nothing keeps you satisfied

Nothing keeps you satisfied

 

Everyday is the first day

And Lord how long it can be

Making your way ain't so easy

But it shows you how much you believe

I'll show you just how much you believe

 

Everyday is the first day

And Lord how long it can be

Making your way ain't so easy

But it shows you how much you believe

I'll show you just how much you believe

 

BRAND NEW TENNESSEE WALTZ   

 

Oh my, but you have a pretty face

You favour a girl I once knew

I imagine that she's still in Tennessee

And by God I should be there too

I've a sadness too sad to be true

 

But I left Tennessee in a hurried day

The same way that I'm leaving you

Because love is just mainly memories

And everyone's got them a few

So when I'm gone I'd be glad to love you

 

At the brand new Tennessee waltz

You're literally waltzing on air

At the brand new Tennessee waltz

There's no telling who will be there

 

When I leave it'll be like I found you love

Descending Victorian stairs

I'm peeling like one of your photographs

Trapped while I'm putting on airs

And getting even by asking who cares

 

At the brand new Tennessee waltz

You're literally waltzing on air

At the brand new Tennessee waltz

There's no telling who will be there

 

So have all of your passionate violins

Play a tune for a Tennessee kid

Who's feeling like leaving another town

With no place to go if he did

Cause they'll catch you wherever you're hid

 

At the brand new Tennessee waltz

You're literally waltzing on air

At the brand new Tennessee waltz

There's no telling who will be there

 

 

HARD TO BE FRIENDS

 

Cause it's so hard to be friends

When it was so easy to be lovers

Holding on, holding on, to each other

 

It's so hard to be free

When it was so easy to be sheltered

Mothered by the promises

Someone said, "keep the fire

Fill the cup and feed hungry feelings"

Know so well, never tell

 

So hard to step forward

So easy to turn inward

Too soon to be ended

Too late, too late, to be mended

 

So hard to step forward

So easy to turn inward

Too soon to be ended

Too late, too late, to be mended

 

Cause it's so hard to be friends

When it was so easy to be lovers

 

 

DREAMING AS ONE

 

The morning dove's singing

Her sweet lullaby

Her love is still thinking

Of how he'll reply

 

As I reach for you

You open your eyes

As if somehow you knew

The need in my life

As you always do

Slowly you come

As, though we sleep as two

We're dreaming as one

 

The child in his slumber

His world is at rest

I can't help but wonder

Why I am so blessed

 

As I reach for you

You open your eyes

As if somehow you knew

The need in my life

Love will see us through

The darkness to come

As, though we sleep as two

We're dreaming as one

We're dreaming as one

 

As I lie with you

Awaiting this day

I give my thoughts to you

I silently pray

That love will see us through

The darkness to come

 

As we sleep as two

We're dreaming as one

We're dreaming as one

Dreaming as one

 

TILL I GAIN CONTROL AGAIN   

 

Just like the sun over the mountain tops

You know I'll always come again

You know I love to spend my morning time

Like sunlight dancing on your skin

 

I'd never gone so wrong as for telling lies to you

What you see is what I've been

There is nothing I can hide from you

You see me better than I am

 

Out on the road that lies before me now

There are some turns where I will spin

I only hope that you can hold me now

Till I can gain control again

 

Just like a lighthouse you must stand alone

And mark a sailor's journey's end

No matter what seas I have been sailing on

I'll always roll this way again

 

Out on the road that lies before me now

There are some turns where I will spin

I only hope that you can hold me now

Till I can gain control again

 

I only hope that you can hold me now

Till I can gain control again

 

 

THE BALLAD

 

All of me wanting you

You're in my life, what can I do

Without your heart glow

The night's so cold and lonely

Your still dreams, waiting time

And if you are, will I find

The all to please you

And to feel you here again

 

All it seems, is fading fast

Had you in mind, you came at last

And through night sights

Across the half light

Into you

 

 

SHUTOUT

 

Throw off those gimmicks to the boys

Let them send it all up in the air

There is crouching and wailing on stones down here

We must freeze off this ratmosphere

Scraping out noise across nite wires

Runs for the distant cities

There is never a lock in the fall

Down here as the big full pours away

 

In the shutout

In the shutout

How will we know the great doll

 

Something attacked the earth last nite

With a kick that man habit eye

Cut the sleep tight boys who dreamed and dreamed

Of a city like the sky

There were faces bobbing in the heat

For some rising from her zone

Moving, hitting, holding on

For the promise to carry us home

 

In the shutout

In the shutout

Never a lock in the fall

 

In the shutout

In the shutout

How will we know the great doll

 

 

FAT MAMA KICK

 

Sunfighters

Locked in right angle rooms

Watch their lovers sleep face down

In the yellow lite

Keep the balance on a black curve

Till the war with the nite is over

 

The gods are gone the air is thick

You cannot risk the fat fat mama kick

 

Armed angels in the city lites

Wait inside their master corpses

Peeled raw, betrayed

And fade

And fade

As the noise goes over

And over

 

The gods are gone the searchlites lick

You cannot risk the fat fat mama kick

 

Deaf dumb blind

Deaf dumb blind

Deaf dumb blind

Deaf dumb blind

Deaf dumb blind

Deaf dumb blind

 

Sunfighters

Locked in right angle rooms

Burn the heat off with their lovers

In the yellow lite

Keep a balance in a mirror flash

Till the war with the nite is over

 

 

NITE FLIGHTS

 

There's no hold

The moving has come through

The danger brushing you

Turns its face into the heat

And runs the tunnels

 

It's so cold

The dark dug up by dogs

The stitches 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

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

Only one promise

Only one way to fall

 

On the nite flights

On the nite flights

On the nite flights

Only one way to fall

 

On the nite flights

On the nite flights

On the nite flights

Only one way to fall

 

 

THE ELECTRICIAN

 

Baby it's slow

When lites go low

There's no help no

 

Baby it's slow

When lites go low

There's no help no

 

He's drilling thru the spiritus sanctus tonight

Thru the dark hip falls screaming oh you mambos

Kill me and kill me and kill me

 

If I jerk the handle

You'll die in your dreams

If I jerk the handle

Jerk the handle

You'll thrill me and thrill me and thrill me

 

Baby it's slow

When lites go low

There's no help no

 

 

DEATH OF ROMANCE

 

Dreams behind the surface

Heat upon the throne

Hold the rolling clouds

Vacuum slow the bone

Bring your many days down forward

Before you wake alone

For one more glance

One more glance

One more glance

At the death of romance

 

It's a lover's graveyard

We will never walk the same

Sweet suffering comes at dawn

If we only could remain

It was dark before we got there

As we were going down there

For one more chance

One more chance

One more chance

At the death of romance

 

We've got the perfect seat

The kind of show we love

We watched them pull the triggers

We heard the push and shove

Danced among the swordsmen

Before their strike at dawn

We danced the dance

Danced the dance

Danced the dance

It's the death of romance

 

DEN HAAGUE   

 

It's raining in the back seat of my cadillac

Dolly's sitting in the white wet

Someone hung a coat on a statue of Christ

And I called for a drink and a vet

Den Haague

Den Haague

You scare me good

Den Haague

Den Haague

You scare me

 

We were taken from behind

By some flesh jabs

Two litres really make you move

Look out for the muff king

With the big black whopper

In a two way mirror mood

Den Haague

Den Haague

You scare me good

Den Haague

Den Haague

You scare me

 

(Some other time)

(Some other where)

Baby you might care

(Some other time)

(Some other where)

Baby would you dare

Den Haague

Den Haague

You scare me good

Den Haague

Den Haague

You scare me

No lie

No lie

 

 

RHYTHMS OF VISION

 

The earth is the fire

And lust is the life

No stopping it now

Your love for the knife

She knows the hard well

She's making it twitch

Just waiting to open her sacred stitch

 

On the night of the moon

The rites of the witch

Odyssey's near

You've lost to the bitch

 

Rhythms of vision tear at your mind

The evil you feel feels so more than kind

 

On the night of the moon

Rites of the witch

Odyssey's near

You've lost to the bitch

 

Rhythms of vision tear at your mind

The evil you feel feels so more than kind

 

Rhythms of vision tear at your mind

The evil you feel feels so more than kind

 

Rhythms of vision tear at your mind

The evil you feel feels so more than kind

 

(Rhythms of vision tear at your mind

The evil you feel feels so more than kind)

 

(Rhythms of vision tear at your mind

The evil you feel feels so more than kind)

 

(Rhythms of vision tear at your mind

The evil you feel feels so more than kind)

 

(Rhythms of vision tear at your mind

The evil you feel feels so more than kind)

 

(Rhythms of vision tear at your mind)

 

 

DISCIPLES OF DEATH

 

I speak to the opening eye

Only fools live to die

Disciples of death

Watch the shaft fly

Disciples of death

Watch the shaft fly

 

Red, the fresh blood

A whirling, turning colour

Burns on a diamond star

Fresh blood,

Burns on a diamond star

 

To feed on the ritual sight

The will and flesh alike

Return into night

Through the light strike

Return into night

Through the light strike

 

Red, the fresh blood

A whirling, turning colour

Burns on a diamond star

Fresh blood

Fresh blood

Fresh blood

Fresh blood

Burns on a diamond star

 

 

FURY AND THE FIRE

 

Vision, relate me to desire

Truth in the source

Living is truth

Truth in the source

Living is truth

 

Dimension, the will of becoming

Be my reflection

The ice and the steel

Be my reflection

The ice and the steel

 

We are all real

In the fury and the fire

We are all real

In the fury and the fire

 

Experience, creation is mine

Revealing impressions

Never too blind

Revealing impressions

Never too blind

 

We are all real

We are all real

We are all real

In the fury and the fire

 

CHILD OF FLAMES   

 

You can't reveal

The future fades

The terror's near

The granite blades

Something wakes

Moves and shifts

The contacts made

The shot that lifts

 

How long can you survive

With the child of flames

How long can you survive

With the child of flames

 

Through each time

The thing still moves

The golden axe

The pounding hooves

You hear the sound

The naked shakes

Start to count

The balance breaks

 

How long can you survive

With the child of flames

How long can you survive

With the child of flames

 

How long can you survive

With the child of flames

How long can you survive

With the child of flames

 

How long can you survive

With the child of flames

How long can you survive

With the child of flames

 

How long can you survive

With the child of flames

How long can you survive

With the child of flames
