    Sunday

     

    Nothing remains
    We could run when the rain slows
    Look for the cars or signs of life
    Where the heat goes
    Look for the drifters
    We should crawl under the bracken
    Look for the shafts of light on the road
    Where the heat goes
    Everything has changed
     
    For in truth, it's the beginning of nothing
    And nothing has changed
    Everything has changed
    For in truth, it's the beginning of an end
    And nothing has changed
    And everything has changed
     
    (first voice)
    In your fear
    Of what we have become
    Take to the fire
    Now we must burn
    All that we are
    Rise together
    Through these clouds
    As on wings
     
    (2nd voice)
    In your fear, seek only peace
    In you fear, seek only love
    In your fear, seek only peace
    In you fear, seek only love
    In your fear, in your fear
    As on wings
     
    This is the trip
    And this is the business we take
    This is our number
    All my trials, Lord
    Will be remembered
    Everything has changed

    Cactus

     

    Sitting here wishing on a cement floor
    Just wishing that I had just something you wore
     
    I put it on when I go lonely
    Will you take off your dress and send it to me?
     
    I miss your kissin' and I miss your head
    And a letter in your writing doesn't mean you're not dead
     
    Just run outside in the desert heat
    Make your dress all wet and send it to me
     
    I miss your soup and I miss your bread
    And a letter in your writing doesn't mean you're not dead
     
    So spill your breakfast and drip your wine
    Just wear that dress when you di yi yi yi yine
     
    D -A -V -I -D
     
    Sitting here wishing on a cement floor
    Just wishing that I had just something you wore
     
    Bloody your hands on a cactus tree
    Wipe 'em on your dress and send it to me
     
    Sitting here wishing on a cement floor
    Just wishing that I had just something you wore

    Slip Away

     

    Oogie waits for just another day
    Drags his bones to see the Yankees play
    Bones Boy talks and flickers gray
    Oh, they slip away
     
    Once a time they nearly might have been
    Bones and Oogie on a silver screen
    No one knew what they could do
    Except for me and you
    They slip away
    They slip away
     
    (Chorus)
    Don't forget to keep your head warm
    Twinkle twinkle Uncle Floyd
    Watching all the world and war torn
    How I wonder where you are
     
    Sailing over Coney Island
    Twinkle twinkle Uncle Floyd
    We were dumb but you were fun, boy
    How I wonder where you are
     
    Oogie knew there's never ever time
    Some of us will always stay behind
    Down in space it's always 1982
    The joke we always knew
    Oo-oo
    What'sa matter with you
     
    C'mon, let's go
    Slip away
    Oo-o
    (Chorus)

    Slow Burn

     

    Here shall we live in this terrible town
    Where the price for our minds shall squeeze them tight like a fist
    And the walls shall have eyes
    And the doors shall have ears
    But we'll dance in their dark
    Still they'll play with our lives
     
    Like a Slow Burn
    Leading us on and on and on
    Like a Slow Burn
    Turning us round and round and round
     
    But who are we
    So small in times such as these
    Slow Burn
    Slow Burn
     
    Oh, these are the days
    These are the strangest of all
    These are the nights
    These are the darkest to fall
     
    Though who knows?
    Echoes in tenement halls
    Who knows?
    Though the years spare them all
     
    Like a Slow Burn
    Leading us on and on and on
    Like a Slow Burn
    Twirling us round and round and upside down
     
    There's fear overhead
    There's fear overground
     
    Slow Burn
    Slow Burn
     
    Like a Slow Burn
    Leading us on and on and on
    Like a Slow Burn
    Turning us round and round and round
     
    And here are we
    At the center of it all
     
    Slow Burn
    Slow Burn

    Afraid

     

    I wish I was smarter
    I got so lost on the shore
    I wish I was taller
    Things really matter to me
     
    But I put my face in tomorrow
    I believe we're not alone
    I believe in Beatles
    I believe my little soul has grown
    And I'm still so afraid
    Yes, I'm still so afraid
    Yea, I'm still so afraid on my own
    On my own
     
    What made my life so wonderful?
    What made me feel so bad?
    I used to wake up the ocean
    I used to walk on clouds
     
    If I put faith in medication
    If I can smile a crooked smile
    If I can talk on television
    If I can walk an empty mile
    Then I won't feel afraid
    No, I won't feel afraid
    I won't be
    Be afraid
    Anymore

    I’ve Been Waiting for You

     

    I've been looking
    For a woman
    To save my life
    Not to beg, or to borrow
    A woman
    With the feeling
    Of losing once or twice
    Who knows how it could be?
    Tomorrow?
     
    I've been waiting for you
    And you've been coming to me
    For such a long time now
    Such a long time now
     
    A woman
    With the feeling
    Of losing once or twice
    Who knows how it could be?
    Tomorrow?
     
    I've been waiting for you
    And you've been coming to me
    For such a long time now
    Such a long time now

    I Would Be Your Slave

     

    Walking in the snowy street
    Let me understand
    Drifting down a silent path
    Stumbling over land
    Open up your heart to me
    Show me who you are
    And I would be your Slave
     
    Do you sleep in quietude
    Do you walk in peace
    Do you laugh out loud at me
    No one else is free
    Open up your heart to me
    Show me all you are
    And I would be your slave
     
    I don't sit and wait
    I don't give a damn
    I don't see the point at all
    No footprints in the sand
     
    I bet you laugh out loud at me
    A chance to strike me down
    Give me peace of mind at last
    Show me all you are
    Open up your heart to me
    I would be your slave
     
    I don’t sit and wait
    I don't give a damn
    I don't see the point at all
    No footprints in the sand
     
    I would give you all my love
    Nothing else is free
    Open up your heart to me
    I would be your slave

    I Took a Trip On a Gemini Spaceship

     

    I took a trip on a gemini spacecraft
    And I thought about you
    I passed through the shadow of Jupiter
    And I thought about you
    I shot my spacegun
    And boy, I really felt blue
    Two or three flying saucers
    Parked under the stars
    The winding stream
    Moon shining down
    On some little town
    And with each beam
    The same old dream
     
    I took a trip on a gemini spacecraft
    And I thought about you
    I shot my spacegun
    And I thought about you
    I pulled down my sun visor
    Boy, I really felt blue
     
    You jumped into your Gemini
    I jumped into mine
    We'll orbit the moon
    For just one time
    Tomorrow night
    Tomorrow night
    Will you hold hands
    With me in the moonlight
     
    I took a trip in a gemini spacecraft
    And I thought about you
    I shot my spacegun
    And I thought about you
    I took a walk in space
    Boy, I really felt blue
    Well, I peeked through the crack
    And I looked way back
    The stardust trail
    Leading back to you
    What did I do
    What could I do
    What did I do
     
    Well……
     
    I thought about you

    5:15 The Angels Have Gone

     

    5.15
    I'm changing trains, this little town
    Let me down
    This foreign rain brings me down
    5.15
    Train overdue, angels have gone
    No ticket
    I'm jumping tracks, I'm changing towns
     
    We never talk anymore
    Forever I will adore only you
     
    5.15
    All of my life, angels have gone
    I'm changing trains
    Angels like them, thin on the ground
    All of my life
    All legs and wings, strange sandy eyes
    5.15
    Train overdue, angels have gone
     
    We never talk anymore
    Forever
    I will adore only you
    Cold station
    All of my life
    Forever
    I'm out of here forever

    Everyone Says 'Hi'

     

    Said you took a big trip
    Said you moved away
    Happened oh so quietly, they say
     
    Should a took a picture
    Something I could keep
    Buy a little frame, something cheap
    For you
    Everyone says 'hi'
     
    Said you sailed a big ship
    Said you sailed away
    Didn't know the right thing to say
     
    I'd love to get a letter
    Love to know what's what
    Hope the weather's good, and it's not too hot
    For you
    Everyone says 'hi'
     
    Everyone says 'hi'
    Everyone says
    Don't stay in a sad place
    Where they don't care how you are
    Everyone says 'hi'
     
    If the money is lousy
    You can always come home
    We can do all the old things
    We can do all the bad things
     
    If the food gets you leery
    You can always phone
    We could do all the good things
    We could do it
    We could do it
    We could do it
     
    Don't stay in a bad place
    Where they don't care how you are
    Everyone says 'hi'
    Everyone says 'hi'
    Everyone says 'hi'
    And the girl next door
    And the guy upstairs
    Everyone says 'hi'
    And your mum and dad
    Everyone says 'hi'
    And your big fat dog
    Everyone says 'hi'
    Everyone says 'hi'
    Hi hi hi hi yi

    A Better Future

     

    Please don't tear this world asunder
    Please take back this fear we're under
    I demand a better future
    Or I might just stop wanting you
     
    Please make sure we get tomorrow
    All this pain and all this sorrow
    I demand a better future
    Or I might just stop needing you
     
    Give my children sunny smiles
    Give them room and cloudless skies
    I demand a better future
    Or I might just stop loving you, loving you, loving you
     
    When we talk, we talk to you
    When we walk, we walk to you
    From factory to field
    How many tears must fall?
    Down there below
    Nothing is moving
