George Fox lyrics


Original and similar lyrics
There's a strange new breed, a kind of homebrew Their apathy, curdles They gotta be there see that, do their darling chit chat, climb up your own pedestal What's happened to them over there? It's safe down here What's up with that hole up there? It's too far away to see There's a strange new breed, a kind of homebrew It could be you or me I know I sit next to him on the bus His tie firmly in place, his destination secure Down his tunnel through his tunnel in his bubble with his bible in his bubble, with his bible, in his bubble, What's gonna give? Do we have to shake you? When will your nine to five be broken open? What's gonna give? When will you listen to those who've seen this cycle before? '45 wasn't that long ago '45 wasn't that long ago

A Long Way Down From Stephanie

AL STEWART "Bed-Sitter Images"
Maid, truly I see Now it must be a long way down And with love's burnt shore Must all dalliance hither Crumble and wither Oh strange, Methought it strange Thou couldst deprive me of my crown Thou cast upon me as linden bears fruit of bitter strain And I would go forsooth to the dragon's tooth If thus a chance were gained To resurrect that part of your wanton heart To whose grave my own is chained And hold, ere thou dost go Were not thy moments gilded too? And in honesty didst thou not measure for measure Countenance pleasure? Cold wert thou so cold Lest thy mind be frozen too And will not spring be reborn But might the sun for the frost here That all be not lost herein And I would rather, zounds It were hell's own hounds Whose foul breath upon my face Did portent my doom Than to bear the gloom Of a world stripped of thy grace And so in truth I know Yes it will be a long way down And if go thou must Ere we should meet accidental Prithee be gentle And though distant now Perchance the hand of time may soothe And though lost at six If I should live to be seven I might forget Stephanie

Dress Rehearsal Rag

LEONARD COHEN "Songs Of Love And Hate"
Four o'clock in the afternoon and I didn't feel like very much. I said to myself, 'Where are you golden boy, where is your famous golden touch' I thought you knew where all of the elephants lie down, I thought you were the crown prince of all the wheels in Ivory Town. Just take a look at your body now, there's nothing much to save and a bitter voice in the mirror cries, 'Hey, Prince, you need a shave.' Now if you can manage to get your trembling fingers to behave, why don't you try unwrapping a stainless steel razor blade That's right, it's come to this, yes it's come to this, and wasn't it a long way down, wasn't it a strange way down There's no hot water and the cold is running thin. Well, what do you expect from the kind of places you've been living in Don't drink from that cup, it's all caked and cracked along the rim. That's not the electric light, my friend, that is your vision growing dim. Cover up your face with soap, there, now you're Santa Claus. And you've got a gift for anyone who will give you his applause. I thought you were a racing man, ah, but you couldn't take the pace. That's a funeral in the mirror and it's stopping at your face. That's right, it's come to this, yes it's come to this, and wasn't it a long way down, ah wasn't it a strange way down Once there was a path and a girl with chestnut hair, and you passed the summers picking all of the berries that grew there; there were times she was a woman, oh, there were times she was just a child, and you held her in the shadows where the raspberries grow wild. And you climbed the twilight mountains and you sang about the view, and everywhere that you wandered love seemed to go along with you. That's a hard one to remember, yes it makes you clench your fist. And then the veins stand out like highways, all along your wrist. And yes it's come to this, it's come to this, and wasn't it a long way down, wasn't it a strange way down You can still find a job, go out and talk to a friend. On the back of every magazine there are those coupons you can send. Why don't you join the Rosicrucians, they can give you back your hope, you can find your love with diagrams on a plain brown envelope. But you've used up all your coupons except the one that seems to be written on your wrist along with several thousand dreams. Now Santa Claus comes forward, that's a razor in his mit; and he puts on his dark glasses and he shows you where to hit; and then the cameras pan, the stand in stunt man, dress rehearsal rag, it's just the dress rehearsal rag, you know this dress rehearsal rag, it's just a dress rehearsal rag.

We Trusted You

[Chorus:] We trusted you, we put out a helping hand Only in return, we get a stabbing in the back [x2] I paid a visit to a man who was pretty crazy Cooled off in the shade, we were feelin' lazy Trouble starts coming , nothing can phase me When tomorrow looks very hazy Took us for granted, let's start here Friendship over, so very clear Then what is fair, is gonna be fair Fuck're over [Chorus] It's time to weed out the weak, do away with their lives I see it so clear now, through my open eyes Stood by your side, you put a knife in my back Never ever thought it'd be you who would do me like that But we live and we learn, or so it's said One thing about you, I can't wait till you're dead The mistakes I've made won't happen again Keep my enemies closer than I keep my friends It's got me fucked up, I just can't let it go Will we ever be the same? Well my answer is no Think about your death every goddamn day Wanna know what I think? This is what I must say I say we line 'em all up, then we gun 'em all down Then we all celebrate when they all hit the ground Don't wake up now, it's gonna be too late Don't give me that shit about cleanin' the slate You've been at it too long, all your life that I've checked Now your time's almost up with a noose on your neck Smile in my face, better watch your back Two-faced motherfucker gets both jaws cracked [chorus] [instrumental] If you don't stand for nothing I can't really stand behind you Who knew you withdrew your point of view I lost mine, you cry and whine all the time And I cant stand aside or anywhere near you I'd get in check, you're a wreck, no respect, In effect you elect me to fuckin' hate you I'll break you down on the ground, I've found You're a clown, I'm around, you want war? I'll take you Stand aside, take a ride, I won't try, you're a lie, my lyrical lesson will teach you So take a stand if you can, my man, go where I stand, I'll hold my hand But in the real world you get squashed and then stung Get hit bitch, slit, aw then you get hung in a fantasy all day long, it must be so fun being so fucking dumb [chorus]

Mary Says

Lee Hom Wang
How long has it been since i held you near? How long will it be till i have you right here? You say that hurts i cant disagree But how can i hold on to someone who's leaving me? And mary says she's gonna be ok She tells me things are getting busiet these days (She tells me things will be much easier someday) And mary says she's gonna be alright You know how much i miss her in my life (You know how much i'm missing her deep inside) Goodbye yesterday i see my dreams walking away And Mary looks just like she did before Except she dont, she dont love me anymore I could shake your hand or I could kiss you goodbyes But i just might break down looking in you brown eyes So what happens next Do i listen to my mind or heart? I dont know where to start feeling again...


SUZANNE VEGA "Solitude Standing"
You come from far away With pictures in your eyes Of coffeeshops and morning streets In the blue and silent sunrise But night is the cathedral Where we recognized the sign We strangers know each other now As part of the whole design Oh, hold me like a baby That will not fall asleep Curl me up inside you And let me hear you through the heat You are the jester of this courtyard With a smile like a girl's Distracted by the women With the dimples and the curls By the pretty and the mischievous By the timid and the blessed By the blowing skirts of ladies Who promise to gather you to their breast Oh, hold me like a baby... You have hands of raining water And that earring in your ear The wisdom on your face Denies the number of your years With the fingers of the potter And the laughing tale of the fool The arranger of disorder With your strange and simple rules Yes now I've met me another spinner Of strange and gauzy threads With a long and slender body And a bump upon the head Oh, hold me like a baby... With a long and slender body And the sweetest softest hands And we'll blow away forever soon And go on to different lands And please do not ever look for me But with me you will stay And you will hear yourself in song Blowing by one day Oh, hold me like a baby...
