Ain’t Too Good

•3 November, 2010 • Leave a Comment

Well, it ain’t too good,
The way you treat your man,
It’s less than good,
It sure ain’t kind,
It’s your mistake,
You’ll see in time,
When I’m gone, when I’m gone.

Well, it’s been so long,
Since I felt that glow,
The flame was bright,
But it’s burning low,
I should be gone,
But I’m slow to go,
Serves me right, serves me…..

It doesn’t seem clear,
What happens from here and now,
You’ve called the tune, but maybe soon,
Someone must pay for the piper.

Well, it ain’t too late,
To change your mind,
For it’s time you knew,
Just where I stand,
Well, let me know,
‘Cause I got plans,
From now on, from now on, from now on.

I am the walrus

•31 October, 2010 • 1 Comment

 

 

I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together.
See how they run like pigs from a gun, see how they fly.
I’m crying.

Sitting on a cornflake, waiting for the van to come.
Corporation tee-shirt, stupid bloody Tuesday.
Man, you been a naughty boy, you let your face grow long.
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen.
I am the walrus, goo goo g’joob.

Mister City Policeman sitting
Pretty little policemen in a row.
See how they fly like Lucy in the Sky, see how they run.
I’m crying, I’m crying.
I’m crying, I’m crying.

Yellow matter custard, dripping from a dead dog’s eye.
Crabalocker fishwife, pornographic priestess,
Boy, you been a naughty girl you let your knickers down.
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen.
I am the walrus, goo goo g’joob.

Sitting in an English garden waiting for the sun.
If the sun don’t come, you get a tan
From standing in the English rain.
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen.
I am the walrus, goo goo g’joob g’goo goo g’joob.

Expert textpert choking smokers,
Don’t you thing the joker laughs at you?
See how they smile like pigs in a sty,
See how they snied.
I’m crying.

Semolina pilchard, climbing up the Eiffel Tower.
Elementary penguin singing Hari Krishna.
Man, you should have seen them kicking Edgar Allan Poe.
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen.
I am the walrus, goo goo g’joob g’goo goo g’joob.
Goo goo g’joob g’goo goo g’joob g’goo…

 


Don’t Let It Bring You Down

•14 October, 2010 • Leave a Comment

 

 

Old man lying by the side of the road
With the lorries rolling by,
Blue moon sinking from the weight of the load
And the building scrape the sky,
Cold wind ripping down the allay at dawn
And the morning paper flies,
Dead man lying by the side of the road
With the daylight in his eyes.

Don’t let it bring you down
It’s only castles burning,
Find someone who’s turning
And you will come around.

Blind man running through the light of the night
With an answer in his hand,
Come on down to the river of sight
And you can really understand,
Red lights flashing through the window in the rain,
Can you hear the sirens moan?
White cane lying in a gutter in the lane,
If you’re walking home alone.

Don’t let it bring you down
It’s only castles burning,
Just find someone who’s turning
And you will come around.

Don’t let it bring you down
It’s only castles burning,
Just find someone who’s turning
And you will come around.

 

 

Recycled

Side one

1. Recycle

Call me down, the time is here
reminding you to slow the wheel
now, nearing the end of the day,
look, never a moment too soon, or late.

Count the hours, the weeks the days,
forcing natures’ slow decay
here, as we look down on you there
you, fall on into your web of despair.

Man! You had it all your own way,
Now, salvaging blocks of decay. Clean the scene; Change machines!

2. Cybernetic consumption

3. Recycle Countdown

Talk away, the die is cast
all the day, the reasons last.
Just look what is happening here
see, never a day without fear…It’s here!

Calm me down, I have to share
before the world I stand declared.
Hear these words at the end of the day
come never a moment too soon. or late.

Man! You had it all your own way,
Now, salvaging blocks of decay. Clean the scene; Change machines!

4.Automation Horrorscope

Webs of concrete giving off waste dust that marks the search of an age of a thousand vast empires, Sweeping away legends untold to human ears. While shafts of steel clutch the stars, natural supplies…once numerous..now lapse into eerie silence. Recycled energy becomes the only form of life as it was… now new forms are molded from patterns already used in a struggle to survive!

You had me thinking that I lost my mind
but no, it was you.
Thought you’d make it to a better time
’til now, but it’s through.

Your castles made of sand
hold out your helpless hands
going down down down
down down down down
They take it all
then take much more…today,
no man could ever realize
his mistakes,

They will help you one step down…
sit back… and watch you drown
going down down down
Going down down down
down down down

5. Recycling

Here, there, new wonders gently steal,
disguised distorted like moonlit seas
…and I see
you’ve taken all you need,
queue up, don’t fear
there’s mans new fortune here…you hear.

Song-birds, recycling, the same old tune,
Still you slave onwards, ’till all is used.
…tho’ I’ll see
you’ll get the life you need,
queue up don’t fear,
it’s the man who brought you here…you hear.

6. Flight To Reality

You live in stainless forts,
with glass walls around,
Fight against recourses
with your head in the ground,

A nation’s urgent need
fulfils anothers greed
going down down down
down down down down
Fly across the concrete jungle
high in the clouds
Looking up to crystal mountains so proud.

No need to wonder why
nature slowly dies
going down down down
Going down down down
down down down down.

7. Unendless Imagination?

Do you see? Do you see?
Do you do you see? Do you see?
Do you see the ruins
of a life gone by?
Built upon by burning towers
lighting the sky,
Imagine you’re the prince of eagles
tears in your eyes,
Do you see there’s not much time
before we go
down down…
down down down down

Side two

1. Sao Paulo Sunrise

Dream, away on the waves,
using the money you’ve saved,
Our work is done, we’ll bathe in the sun
gonna take a trip let’s fly down to Rio.
Some solitude is all that we need,
deserted beach were the air is do free-o.

2. Costa Del Sol

Cares cast aside
see the seas calm and wide.
Small isle,
virgin paradise,
Warm smiles
floating in the tides.

Find some desolate place
now it’s out of the way
Soon, through words passed by mouth,
Friends are crowding you out,

Same place
natures changed its face,
Warm smiles
stretching out for miles.
Searching in haste
Finding refuse and waste

3. Marvellous Moses

Never thought had ever
get his metal boat
to fly in the air,
Moses did it…
With a string at each end,
We nearly all died
when he tugged and he sighed
saying you are the fools,
Moses did it…
With his hair tied to his shoes.

Come around here
they say youve got something to hide.
Ive never met a man like Moses
with so much time.
Come around here
they say youve got something to hide.
Ive never met a man like Moses
with so much time.
Moses had a thought
to put another hill
on a mountain,
Moses did it…
With a spoon in each hand.
To our surprise
Moses closed up his eyes
saying show me no rules,
Moses did it…
With his arms tied to his side.

Come around here
they say youve got something to hide.
Ive never met a man like Moses
with so much time.

Come around here
they say youve got something to hide.
Ive never met a man like Moses
with so much time.

Came the great day
Moses tried to drink a lake
for a penny
Moses did it…
O man, he looked heavy
He walked around all day
saying Ive got so much pain,
give me a shove,
Moses did it…
Tourist attraction!

4. Its all over

Come tomorrow
Im going to
be the one that
you will follow.
Your world is so
upside down cos
its all over now.

Take the high road and youll
take the low one,
see it all through those
passing hours,
These moments seem
so inside out
its all over now… Its all over!

See the daytime youve
seen the darkness Im
torn apart through those
many changes.
A feeling that
youll understand,
Its all over now.

See me walking and
hear me talking. Ill
guide you all through those
endless ages.
Your world was so
upside down but
its all over now. Its all over.
A feeling that
youll understand
its all over

Heartbreaker

Well my maker
must ‘ve been a hard heartbreaker
I said my maker
must ‘ve been a hard heartbreaker
I’ll tell you why

I’m breaking my own heart
tryin’….to love a faker

Like a blind man
my little house is on fire
just like a blind man
my little house is on fire

I’m burning my own eyes out
tryin’….to reach the door

Well the sun is shining
but it sure don’t seem to reach my heart
well the sun is shining
but it sure don’t seem to reach my heart

I’m wasting my whole life
tryin’…..to make a new start

Make a new start
make a new start
make a new start
make a new start




Ten Years Gone

•27 September, 2010 • Leave a Comment

Then, as it was, then again it will be
And though the course may change sometimes
Rivers always reach the sea
Behind skies of fortune, each has gentle rain
On the wings of maybe, downy birds of prey
Kind of makes me feel sometimes, didnt have to go
But as the eagle leaves the nest, it’s got so far to go

Changes fill my time, baby, thats alright with me
In the midst I think of you, and how it used to be

Did you ever really need somebody, and really need em bad
Did you ever really want somebody, the best something you ever had
Do you ever remember me, baby, did it feel so good
Cause it was just the first time, and you knew you would

Dewy eyes now sparkle, senses grown keen
Taste your love along the way, see your feathers preen
Kind of makes me feel sometimes, didnt have to go
We are eagles of a nest, the nest is in our soul

Vixen in my dreams, with great surprise to me
Never thought Id see your face the way it used to be
Oh darlin, oh darlin

Im never gonna leave you. I never gonna leave
Holdin on, ten years gone
Ten years gone, holdin on, ten years gone…

magic carpet ride

•24 September, 2010 • Leave a Comment


I like to dream yes, yes, right between my sound machine
On a cloud of sound I drift in the night
Any place it goes is right
Goes far, flies near, to the stars away from here

Well, you don’t know what we can find
Why don’t you come with me little girl
On a magic carpet ride
You don’t know what we can see
Why don’t you tell your dreams to me
Fantasy will set you free
Close your eyes girl
Look inside girl
Let the sound take you away

Last night I held Aladdin’s lamp
And so I wished that I could stay
Before the thing could answer me
Well, someone came and took the lamp away
I looked around, a lousy candle’s all I found

Well, you don’t know what we can find
Why don’t you come with me little girl
On a magic carpet ride
Well, you don’t know what we can see
Why don’t you tell your dreams to me
Fantasy will set you free
Close your eyes girl
Look inside girl
Let the sound take you away
