Red Turned White

Original and similar lyrics
My bride and groom spent the lonely season figuring life out so imagine the change when the smoke it filled the air yeah and when the north reflected southern lights in the eyes of the deep where red turned white you got the wrong attitude. to be lude to stop and stare You got me crawling through hoops on your roof to a death song and darling you forgot to tell me i was gonna grow my hair wrong and when the north reflected southern lights in the eyes of the deep where red turned white you got the wrong idea if you're leaping off the edge of this world.

Jesus Nitelite

EVE 6 "Eve 6"
Your eyes shine bright like a Jesus nitelite I'd like to touch your positive vibes Indifferent eyes won't give me the time May I help put aside your moral fiber You're dressed in white my face is white I'd like to be a colorful sight to see I'm only here in a background Here on the ground lays my head I sleep and then I wake make sounds and go to bed and wake again The time is right but I feel all wrong It wastes away until it's gone The time is right but I feel all wrong It fades away and now you're gone You're walking by I'm standing by Behind the light I'm standing by By and by

Sensitive New Age Guy

JOHN GRANT "Pale Green Ghosts"
Take Picasso, Otto Dix and some Salvador Dali, Accompanied by Wagner, plus some Public Enemy. She isn't any of these things, and she would never want to be. She's a special kind of thing made from a secret recipe. He had a deeper understanding of the state that we are in. She didn't run away and hide; she stayed right through the bitter end. He demanded our attention, and we tried to do our best. She was taking us to school, but most of us would fail the test. [Chorus] She's just a sensitive new age guy. You came to the wrong place if you came to see her cry. If you have the guts, then please look deep into her painted eyes. You could be a better human she just wants to see you try. He always played the good cop to her fabulosity. Where she had been they had to replace light bulbs constantly 'Cause she could only always be the brightest in the room. She had a special way of preaching glamour mixed with doom. With just a simple quip she'd wipe that smirk right off your face And replace it with a smile while demonstrating latex grace. And with time I saw him less and less. I don't know where he went, But it was I who ran away to some far foreign speaking place. [Chorus x3] She's just a sensitive new age guy. You came to the wrong place if you came to see her cry. If you have the guts, then please look deep into her painted eyes. You could be a better human she just wants to see you try.

Lone Justice

ANTHRAX "Spreading The Disease"
There's two kinds, of people in the world The outlaws, and the lawmen that prevail The bounty hunter's job is on the wrong side of the law Intentions, of the truth and nothing more Burn'em, clear the streets as he rides into the town Cause the nameless one's gonna have some fun He's gonna bring an outlaw down Wasted, it's over quick he's nailed 'em three for three Then he with his squint-eyed grin and stubbled chin He rides through history The jury, in his mind the choices weigh The trials, if you're gulity you're his prey No judgement otherwise can change the lust That's in his eyes The sentence, will be carried out in stride No name, like a shadow on a moonless night Real game, He'll be there to uphold Justice, law and order And you'll pay, the highest fee When the gunslinger takes his piece The money, it's the price you have to pay When he calls, drop your eyes and look away The man has taken life to balance scales of wrong and right Existence, each day a moral fight.

The Geographic North Pole

Laurie Anderson "The Ugly One With The Jewels"
The summer of 1974 was brutally hot in New York and I kept thinking about how nice and icy it must be at the North Pole. And then I though, “Wait a second, why not go?” You know, like in cartoons where they hang going to the North Pole on their door knobs and they just take off. So I spent a couple of weeks preparing for the trip, getting a hatchet, a huge backpack, maps, knives, sleeping bags, lures and a three month supply of Banic, a versatile high-protein paste that can be made into flat bread, biscuits or cereal. Now I had decided to hitch hike and one day I just walked out onto Austin Street, weighing down seventy pounds of gear, and stuck out my thumb. â€' Going North? I asked the driver as I struggled into a station wagon. After I got out of New York, most of the rides were trucks until I reached the Hudson Bay and began to hitch in small male planes. The pilots were usually guys who'd gone to Canada to avoid the draft or else embittered Vietnam vets who never wanted to go home again. Either way they always wanted to show off a few of their stunts. We'd go swooping along the rivers doing loop do loops and baby ###080152. And they'd drop me off at an airstrip. “There'll be another plane by here couple of weeks; see ya; good luck.” I never did make it all the way to the geographic pole; it turned out to be a restricted area and no one was allowed to fly in or even over it. I did get within a few miles of the magnetic pole though. So it wasn't really that disappointing. I entertained myself in the evenings, cooking or smoking, and watching the blazing light of the huge Canadian sunsets as they turned the lake into fire. Later I lay on by back, looking up at the Northern lights and imagining there'd been a nuclear holocaust and that I was the only human being left in all of North America and what would I do then. And then, when these lights went out, I stretched out on the ground, watching the stars as they turned around and their enormous silent ###080318. I finally decided to turn back because of my hatchet. I'd been chopping some wood and the hatchet flew out of my hand on the upswing. And I did what you should never do when this happens: I looked up to see where it had gone and it came down â€' fffooo â€' just missing my head and I thought, “My God! I could be working around here with a hatchet embedded in my skull and I'm ten miles from the airstrip. And nobody in the whole world knows where I am.” Daddy Daddy, it was just like you said Now that the living outnumber the dead Where I come from it's a long thin thread Across an ocean. Down a river of red Now that the living outnumber the dead Speak my language

Another One In The Dark

THE WALLFLOWERS "The Wallflowers"
We took 'em high, we took 'em straight up the hill, They wanted it all, we gave 'em such a fill. In their parades we stole every thrill And in their games we made every kill. We took them hard, we took them up against the wall. In their loss we never let them fall In their flames we sailed up to the moon In their rains we slayed dry like a fire would. So the bottom of my fears Is that the girl might just disappear, But that'll be the death of me, The day she's just a memory Well she turned out the lights When she opened the whites of my eyes Another one in the dark Broken hearted mama Just another one in the dark. When we rolled, rolled on like a big drum, We went to the top just above everyone, They wanted to win, tie us up with a string, and steal everything. We took 'em skin on skin, we laid 'em down in the ring. So I swear, we're a pair, Like loneliness and a prayer, And you know I may still believe, You may still need me. Well, she turned out the lights When she opened the whites of my eyes Another one in the dark Broken from the start Just another one in the dark. And in their nights we made out with a loud scream, And in their sleep we howled inside every dream, So if you're trying to break me, Come on why don't you shake me, Right out of my tree, The one that you made me, me Well, she sang out of tune, When she shot down the moon, As I saw my all freeze, Down onto my knees, Where I was hit at the hip, Between the cup and the lip, As I was struck down under With lightning and thunder, As she cut all the strings That I'd tied to her wings Leaving me in the dark, We stood just feet apart, But she never seen me at all.
