AL STEWART lyrics - Zero She Flies

Zero She Flies

Original and similar lyrics
She's a mollusk, a seamstress, a princess, a priestess, a negress, she knows her position She's a swallow, a willow, a cello, a pillow, a bow and also a physician She takes your eyes and mends your head She draws the wine and breaks the bread She has no lies to tell you and no truths to sell you She's a girl, she's almost a woman And Zero she flies as the morning sighs Spreads her wings like a seagull From the mountain he watches her, biding his time But his eyes are the eyes of an eagle He's a hawthorn, a raven, a scarecrow, a haven for moon-blessed thought and opinion He will laugh like the fountains, the bones of the mountains lie deep in his forest religion You will call his name when evening falls And the ground sets hard and the night wind calls You will feed him and heed him, at times you will need him Say you were almost his woman And Zero she flies as the morning sighs Spreads her wings like a seagull From the mountain he watches her, biding his time But his eyes are the eyes of an eagle In the shuddering mad red blood-let sunset a tired man is leaving his cover And the soft eyes of Zero are cut by the sounds of the vanishing feet of her lover And the door slams shut and the air grows tight And her throat is gripped by the hands of night And all that is left is the clock on the shelf As it ticks one day into another And Zero she sighs as the morning dies With the broken wings of a seagull From the mountain he watches her, sensing his time But his eyes are the eyes of an eagle At the pall of the day the man of the mountain is nearing the end of his travel And the fence is down on the westland bounds and a footfall pounds in the gravel Comes a knock three times and the air grows still As he steps inside from the sudden chill And the moment is caught in the net of the night For the coming of dawn to unravel And Zero she flies as the morning sighs Spreads her wings like a seagull From the mountain he's coming, judging his time And his eyes are the eyes of an eagle Oh Zero she flies as the morning dies Spreads her wings like a seagull From her window he watches her, a man in his time But his eyes are the eyes of an eagle

Eyes Of A Child

SOUL ASYLUM
She had 13 kids each one had 13 problems 3 uppers 10 downers just to put up with this And she don't know which children belong to which father But she loves them all anyways and they each get a kiss And the toilet ain't flushin' And the toaster is smokin The vacuum don't suck But it needs a new belt But she saw the world through the eyes of a child And remembers how it good it was And how good it felt He picks up the paper in the bitter cold morning He had just gone to sleep, he had to get up for work By morning he's a watchman, by night he's a waitor In the late afternoon he works as a clerk And he can't pay the doctor bills, he just can't afford the pills The car's repossessed, and the child support's due But he saw the world through the eyes of a child Big problems seemed smaller And old things seemed new Well, She was just six when she turned her first trick But,now she's 13 and it don't make her sick And she does lots of chrystal and she owns her own pistol Got a goldfish named Silver And a pimp who's named Rick And some are like customers,and some are like patients She'd have gone back to school, if she just had the patience She saw the world through the eyes of a child None of the nightmares and nothing to deny Yes she saw the world And she's seen it all and she knows They're all lies

Warbird

KAMELOT "Eternity"
Taking time out to create His own war It an aerial assault It's the war of the bird Strapped to his forearm Awaiting flight, He's blind as the night Set his mask free Piercing eyes point towards the sea A waiting white gull So swift in flight Flowing like the sea Shadowed by his wing spread As the bird takes to flight He is bound in ecstacy As the claws sink in deep He hears the bird start to scream As his life is taken from him Another trophy retrieved Warbird Champion your King Warriors on wings Warbird Champion your King Warriors on wings Sheltered eyes hide the deep blue sky Shackles hold the arching wings Until tomorrow imprisoned For tomorrow he will be free Taking time out to create His own war It an aerial assault It's the war of the bird Strapped to his forearm Awaiting flight He's blind as the night Set his mask free Piercing eyes point Towards the sea

No Time To Think

BOB DYLAN "Street Legal"
In death you face life with a child and a wife Who sleep-walks through your dreams into walls You're soldier of mercy, you're cold and you curse He who cannot be trusted must fall. Loneliness, tenderness, high society, notoriety You fight for the throne and you travel alone Unknown as you slowly sink And there's no time to think. In the Federal City you been blown and shown pity For secret, for pieces of change The empress attracts you but oppression distracts you And it makes you feel violent and strange. Memory, ecstasy, tyranny, hypocrisy Betrayed by a kiss on a cool night of bliss In the valley of the missing link And you have no time to think. Judges will haunt you, the country priestess will want you Her worst is better than best I've seen all these decoys through a set of deep turquoise eyes And I feel so depressed. China doll, alcohol, duality, mortality Mercury rules you and destiny fools you Like the plague, with a dangerous wink And there's no time to think. Your conscience betrayed you when some tyrant waylaid you Where the lion lies down with the lamb I'd have paid off the traitor and killed him much later But that's just the way that I am. Paradise, sacrifice, mortality, reality But the magician is quicker and his game Is much thicker than blood and blacker than ink And there's no time to think. Anger and jealousy's all that he sells us He's content when you're under his thumb Madmen oppose him, but your kindness throws him To survive it you play deaf and dumb. Equality, liberty, humility, simplicity You glance through the mirror and there's eyes starring clear At the back of you head as you drink And there's no time to think. Warlords of sorrow and queens of tomorrow Will offer their heads for a prayer You can't find no salvation, you have no expectations Anytime, anyplace, anywhere. Mercury, gravity, nobility, humility You know you can't keep her and the water gets deeper That is leading your onto the brink But there's no time to think. You've murdered your vanity, buried your sanity For pleasure you must now resist Lovers obey you but they cannot sway you They're not even sure you exist. Socialism, hypnotism, patriotism, materialism Fools making laws for the breaking of jaws And the sound of the keys as they clink But there's no time to think. The bridge that you travel on goes to the Babylon With the rose in her hair Starlight in the East you're finally released You're stranded but with nothing to share. Loyality, unity, epitome, rigidity You turn around for one real last glimpse of Camille 'Neath the moon shining bloody and pink And there's no time to think. Bullets can harm you and death can disarm you But no, you will not be deceived Stripped of all virtue as you crawl through the dirt You can give but you cannot receive. No time to choose when the truth must die No time to lose or say goodbye No time to prepare for the victim that's there No time to suffer or blink And no time to think.

Wings Of Destiny

Gamma Ray
Do you remember the days when living was meant to be free not looking for fortune not looking for fame the beauty of life was the key We lived as one to conquer the world a thousand dreams to come true we knew in the end we'll find the meaning of life and the truth So proud and full of passion we formed a better world we fought against opression and winsdom was our sword On the path of glory we searched the rainbow's end lives meant to share where's the sign that we'd sent? On the sad wings of destiny we're kings without a throne if you believe in unity believe 'cause you're not alone sad wings of destiny the haunting thoughts of pain the world's a patient, majesty, but believe the time, the time will take its toll Now its the time for a change the days of your childhood are gone the fool and the wise man will burn at the stake confusion remaining too long Violence and hate I won't see anymore the innocent victims of fate the prophets have written their words on the wall wake up before it's too late On the path of glory we searched the rainbow's end lives meant to share where's the sign that we'd sent? On the sad wings of destiny we're kings without a throne if you believe in unity believe 'cause you're not alone sad wings of destiny the haunting thoughts of pain the world's a patient, majesty, but believe believe if you won't change your mind all will remain the same and soon we'll find a common end On the path of glory we searched the rainbow's end lives meant to share where's the sign that we'd sent? On the sad wings of destiny we're kings without a throne if you believe in unity believe 'cause you're not alone Sweet child of innocence are you drowning in your tears? the time has come for you my friend don't hide from evil made by our own hands let us try to fly again one day we will rise again on wings of hope to be free...

You Each Time

ANI DIFRANCO "Educated Guess"
There you were day after day Six feet Twenty feet Two feet away Right in my pocket singin me a song Makin my heart race all day long And we talked it out and we talked it down But your eyes were not listening And my ears were looking around For another song to sing But it was you each time It was you The answer to each moment must be yes And the question... can you live with that? Becomes the test So you weigh it against that aching in your chest And that secretly relentless emptiness And you talk it out and you talk it down But your eyes are not listening And my ears are running around Looking for another song to sing But it is you each time It is you So my heart finally broke It was so long bent And it broke in three places When it finally went It wanted only to say what it meant So it suffered every punishment Now it lives in a shack outside of town And only the wolves are out there listening And in her dreams they chase her down Their moonlit eyes are glistening And it is you each time It is you
