Whisper A Prayer For The Dying

Original and similar lyrics
I hear the sound of distant thunder, echo all around, I see the tragedy of young ones lying on the ground, I see the fathers' sons and daughters, I hear the mothers crying, Nothing left for me to do, but, whisper a prayer for the dying. Oh, a prayer for the dying. The suffocating heat of jungles, and burning desert sands, Where everything reminds you, you're a stranger in a strange land. The soothing words of politicians, those bodyguards of lies, While guardian angels waste their time and every mother cries. Oh, a prayer for the dying, dying, dying. Machine gun, battle cry, you pray to God when the bullets fly, The bombs fall like black rain, an' all your dreams take you home again, Nothing but bad dreams. You can't read, you can't write, You're so scared, you can't sleep at night You try to carry the heavy load, Walking down Armageddon road. Oh, Armageddon road. I hear the sound of distant thunder, echo all around, I see the tragedy of young ones lying on the ground, I see the fathers' sons and daughters, I hear the mothers crying, Nothing left for me to do, but, whisper a prayer for the dying. Oh, a prayer for the dying, dying. Oh, a prayer for the dying, baby, baby. Oh, a prayer for the dying, dying, Whisper a prayer for the dying. You can't run, you can't hide, You can't show what you feel inside. You're going crazy, going insane, You know you'll never be the same again, no, no. Whisper a prayer for the dying, dying, dying, dying, dying, no, no. Armageddon road, Armageddon road, I'm walking down Armageddon road.

Lost And Saved

Juliana Hatfield "Hey Babe"
I know exactly where we stand You're on your feet and I'm in quicksand I can't help myself, I need a hand Just when I think I'm dead He turns up just in time for bed I thank my lucky stars again I sold my soul for rock and roll I never ever get a kiss But now I bought it back and gave it away For another night like this I found a way to use my head I go over and over every word you said Look how I can make something out of nothing Say a prayer for the dying and the lost, ooh When he said he loved me he was Lying but he had his fingers crossed It's ok he's not to blame Let him have his toys I know how to play that game And I know that he's a beautiful boy I'll take him any day But I won't wait around and I won't pray Cos in my heart of hearts I have been saved Say a prayer for the dying and the lost, ooh When he said he loved me he was Lying but he had his fingers crossed

Crestfallen

ANATHEMA "All Faith Is Lost"
I cry a tear of hate but it is lost in helplessness. The darkness eats away at the very embers of my soul For the deepest love I have has dissolved before my eyes. My sorrow is bleak, I beg for deliverance. Lord, in your mercy, hear my prayer. All emotion is consumed by an inner silence. All grief is unassuaged by disconsolate tears. I want for nothing, I live for nothing. I am waiting to die, but I am afraid dying. Lord, in your mercy, hear my prayer. Crestfallen emotion. Wallowing in guilt trying and drowning forevermore. Falling deeper into fear. My inner self is now a sleeper of stone.

Womankind

ANNIE LENNOX "Songs Of Mass Destruction"
One more time for the womankind This is for the womankind Check it out Ooh baby's got precious eyes And when he smiles the sun comes shinin' To make the day seem like each cloud contains a silver linin' I would be so happy If he belonged with me forever But I know it's not to be It's not part of my destination I wish I had a lover who could turn this water into wine I wish I had a lover who could give me love at any time Wish I had so many things And all my wishes would come true It's got me thinkin' that I want to get too close to you Hear my prayer I'm tired of waitin ' Hear my prayer Give it a chance Hear my prayer I'm clearly statin' I need to change this circumstance You could be the best damn thing That hasnt happened yet to me You could be the best thing To come into my mythology We could have the kinda dream they call a great affinity Want to turn it into something like reality Hold me now I'm tired of waitin' Hold me now 1'm askin' you Hold me now No more anticipatin' Why won't you come to my rescue? Ooh babys got precious eyes And when he smiles The sun comes blastin' I wish that feellin' of contentment Would be everlasting I would be so happy To give him all my dedication I would be so happy But its only my imagination Ooh... This is for the womankind Ooh... Singin' for the womankiho Ooh... Thats right for the womankind Ooh... How many doors must I go through These constant dreams that I pursue I can see possibilities in you Yea here we go again Is this too good to be true? I had this thing galled love Still don't know what it is Maybe i've had enough Oh save me please All my wants are becoming needs Tell me what you feel Stripped bare for you to see Yea every desire go through the fire This is what I give of me If I could just be free Baby won't you rescue me? Baby won't you rescue me? Every desire go through the fire Lay me down I wanna be Under your skin

Whisper A Prayer To The Moon

Eleanor McEvoy "What's Following Me?"
(Eleanor McEvoy) In case of loving unreturned Unrequited fingers burn Don't you blame yourself at all There is no blame,there is no crime This madness happens all the time No one there to break your fall I understand how hard it's been I've been there too and I have seen What running after love can do That feeling deep down in your soul That searing,empty,gaping hole Has dug a hole in my life too My darling,my darling So crazy,so charming It's just that it happened too soon But I send you my wishes My hugs and my kisses And whisper a prayer to the moon In case you've lost your faith in life In case you cannot sleep at night Be certain this will take it's toll I recognise those waves of pain I've known them time and time again And would not wish them on a soul Repeat CHORUS In cases lying by your door A life is packed to go once more There was no intent to deceive Please bear no grudge,just bear your soul It's hardly bearable to go And barely possible to leave My sweet tempered angel I wish I were able To heal all the hurt with a tune And if I had the powers I would give you the stars The sun and the light of the moon Repeat CHORUS Repaet CHORUS I whisper a prayer I whisper a prayer I whisper a prayer to the moon I whisper a prayer I whisper a prayer I whisper a prayer to the moon

Fugue 1 More Is More

JOE JACKSON "Heaven Hell"
Let it rain, let it rain Let it rain, let it pour We'll have one for the road, put the bolt on the door Let it rain cats and dogs Let it rain rats and snakes But just bring us more grog And another red steak Let it rain, let it hail Let it rain frogs and toads Butt just bring us some ale, we'll have ten for the road Let it blow, let it roar Let it rain bats from Hell Wipe their arses and pluck 'em, we'll eat them as well (Did you hear about Clyde who are ribs 'til he died At a sign that said 'All You Can Eat For Ten Bob' When the doctors were done pumping out his insides He went back the next morning to finish the job) Let the skies turn to black Let it rain kangaroos But just give us tobacco and tucker and booze So who cares about Heaven Or burning beneath When we're all busy digging our graves with our teeth (Did you hear about Matt who fell into a vat Well they say that he drowned but it took him a week And they say that it wasn't as strange as all that When you think that he kept getting out for a leak) Let it rain, let it flood Let 'em load up the Ark Bring us buckets of blood while they sink in the dark Give 'em two vegetarians And two of the poor And two of the tossers who say less is more
