JAMES TAYLOR lyrics - Hourglass

Up Er Mei

Original and similar lyrics
We were walking in paradise, never did notice. Blind in the Buddha land, looking for solace. We had been told of a place, far beyond this vale of tears. We could never have guessed, we were already blessed. There we were, where we are in the garden. Didn't we climb on up Er Mei, temple to temple? Yes and all and all along the way, the day was simple. Didn't we reach the top, didn't we gain our goal? Did we finally stop, surprised by the cold? We were walking in paradise, never did tumble. Blind in the Buddha land, looking for trouble. We had been told of a place far beyond this vale of tears. We could never have guessed, we were already blessed. There we were, where we are, in the garden, in the garden.

Movin' On

JOHN HIATT "The Open Road"
I'll see my mother again I know I see her everywhere I go Sometimes I see my father too Pourin' over blueprints that he drew He made his way with sweat and brains So I could ride this first class train Well, he didn't even know where to Only knew it wouldn't be long Always movin' on Sing a song about the big ship goin' down Grandma cried, Grandpa too Then we went to town to get some ice cream See a picture show Come back and take a swim in the lake's moon glow Well, I knew then there were no watery graves Just tears and laughter and moonlight on the waves Then the cryin' of the mornin' loon Pretty soon summers' gone Always movin' on My wife's mama lyin' in a dyin' bed They've anointed her with oils and some words are being said Somethin' about the soul bein' present eternally Does that mean I'll be seein' you , babe And will you be seein' me Twilight's dimmin' down another day Been some moments I didn't wanna let slip away As if they wouldn't, as if I could Stay in a place where time just stood Like wood and steel in a watery grave No tears no laughter, no moonlight on the waves Well there's no place like that, it's true Right here's where you and I belong Always movin' on Always movin' on

Tears For The Sheep

ATMOSPHERE "Lucy Ford: The Atmosphere EPs"
[Verse 1: Slug] A city of fools I wanna bash whoever's responsible for this incomprehensible lack of passion The sucker's been seduced down to the stick And the peasants fill their bellies with the poisons you omit I've come to seperate the heads and shoulders Of these tracin' paper soldiers That have been designated to take it over I'ma roll a couple of boulders off the cliff On the road below (look out below) 'Cause I don't know what I'ma hit (yo) I live by the word until I die by your sword Even when I'm dead my head will live inside your RCA cords I wait for the right time, but it resembled now-a-days Descended on the Earth to put an end to all your holidays The assassin covered in plain clothes Smothered the sunlight and set flame to your rainbows And then came the storm (and then came the storm) Bewildered those that didn't contemplate Fake disguised as the norm (as the norm) And when the smoke evaporated and the damage was assessed The casualities were counted as they looked upon the mess As they focused they eyes on the horizon, who'da guessed? All that stood atop the hill was number seven silhouette [Chorus: Slug] (And with this) head splitting tears, cement breaking weeping for these people walking in their sleep (these people walking in their sleep) My talk is not as cheap And my thoughts are not as deep As the day I woke up to discover I lost my sheep head splitting tears, cement breaking Leaping for these people walking in their sleep (these people walking in their sleep) My talk is not as cheap And my thoughts are not as deep As the day I woke up to discover I lost my sheep [Verse 2: Slug] They say a picture's worth a thousand words Well I beg a thousand pardons for each word I've used for personal gains But the letters that float through my head, demote my sentences Could never be contained by your simple picture frames For every intoxicated moment, I hate life I strive to balance my aura by dancing with the light And sometimes it's difficult to stay quiet I fight it, each time I find myself walking across your eyelids Wishin' the malnutrition, the imagination of yours Could see the truth you breathe through each one of your pores And now the days are drastic, the nights last forever Wanna tear this motherfucker up and put it back together I'd like to ask the cats that act like they my peers If you spent the energy I've spit, tryin' to count the tears One of these days you're gonna climb the tallest building of all Give a warning to those below and let the tears fall [Chorus: Slug] (And with the) all the head splitting tears, cement breaking weeping for these people walking in their sleep (these people walking in their sleep) My talk is not as cheap And my thoughts are not as deep As the day I woke up to discover I lost my sheep head splitting tears, cement breaking Leaping for these people walking in their sleep (these people walking in their sleep) My talk is not as cheap And my thoughts are not as deep As the day I woke up to discover I lost my sheep [Brief Singing: Some Female] (2X) Nobodies here 'cept my mirror on the wall [Verse 3: Slug] The damage...overseen by anyone that comprehends The anguish...felt only by the ones that invest The language...was primitive, the listener complex And everybody was trying to define success All the self-proclaimed prophets dressed up to look like poets Pretendin' to be martyrs that they're not You can learn all their names And engrave them on your brains Memories so you can spout them off the top (spout them off the top) Yo kill 'em all, and let God give 'em handcuffs The flood has begun, and no one has been paired up So I'ma take a second to beckon the downfall of your so called civilized nation (Yo yo yo yo yo) stop the sound now! (Cough)

Song For America

KANSAS "Song For America"
Virgin land of forest green, dark and stormy plains, here all life abounds Sunlit valley, mountain fields, unseen in the rain, here all life abounds No man rules this land, no human hand has soiled this paradise Waiting patiently, so much to see, so rich in Earth's delights Painted desert, sequined sky, stars that fill the night, here all life abounds Rivers flowing to the sea, sunshine pure and bright, here all life abounds No man rules this land, no human hand has soiled this paradise Waiting patiently, so much to see, so rich in Earth's delights So the maiden lies in waiting, for the sails to reach the shore Land of beauty and abundance, innocent, you opened wide your door Wanderers found the waiting treasure, full of gifts beyond their measure Milk and honey for our pleasure..... Across the sea there came a multitude, sailing ships upon the wave Filled with visions of Utopia, and the freedom that they crave Ravage, plunder, see no wonder, rape and kill and tear asunder Chop the forest, plow it under..... Highways scar the mountainsides, buildings to the sky, people all around Houses stand in endless rows, sea to shining sea, people all around So we rule this land, and here we stand upon our paradise, Dreaming of a place, our weary race is ready to arise

The Winds Of War

JEDI MIND TRICKS "The Psycho-Social, Chemical, Biological, And Electro-Magnetic Manipulation ..."
[the movie "Se7en"] "I'm setting the example, and what I've done in gonna be puzzled over And studied, and followed, forever." [Ikon"] Prepare for the verbal war The hologram advance, psychical form Manifesting universal mind into the lore Travelling lands, I stand on sands of chemical vibration The math, kings of light departed in wrath So where you gonna stand when the Elohi returns Seven great sages throughout the ages say you burn It's my turn to shine I redefine the crystalline-biological structures, implanted in your mind So I find the deaf, dumb and blind And bless 'em with science, and leave the blind ones behind Descending into big balls of mass, in the form of rain The Verbal Hologram brings pain So rearrange, disagreeable ways that brought you the darkness Take hold, and rip out your soul from your carcass And rise away like a sham The Verbal Hologram is the verbal avalanche One last chance to re-plan, and over-stand Before the Hologram sends your camp to Holy Land So ask your man, when he returns to where I sent him The plan was to kill God and reinvent Him Practicing Black Magical tactics like voodoo Attacking like the seven deadly warships of Nibiru [Chorus x3: sample of Masta Killa from "Triumph"] Give insight to the blind The dumb are mostly intrigued by the drum (intrigued by the drum) [Ikon:] I bring forth the mighty [? ], the powerful zapatra The darkening behind you, the biblical omega The Ashtar Command; I come to bring mortals the barathory gland So here I stand on the Four Corners of Stonehendge Travelling through portals, the [? ] of battles, the lord of the immortals The zeal of the seven, the rising of the demon The lost books of the Bible and forgotten books of Eden The heathens, who burn like [? ] Handed the Holy tablets, like Moses The blackening of roses, will send you to the edges of the land The emerald tablets of Thoth The Atlantean The hands of the mighty Lion of Judah Will throw you through the triangular portals of Bermuda Exploring the Hologramic aspects of consciousness For aliens truth devour, orthodox vs. running through fistic equations for power The shower of acid rain brings pain to the land You cannot kill what you cannot see The Verbal Hologram [Chorus x5]

Dear Moleskine

JAY ELECTRONICA
Have you ever ever ever been depressed so bad It was a struggle every day not to regret your past Feeling cursed like you never ever get your swag And you be speeding down the highway when your threshold pass When you cried all your tears out And one page of your diary can tell you what your year bout That's a lonely place My mama said son why such a lonely face Because the pressures (depression) on me Plus I feel like bill murray trapped in Punxsutawney Dr phil told me that I can sell crack or hit the army Look at where we live at Tell me you don't hear that Tell me you don't feel that Show me to the way out Tell me when pastor raphael gon' reveal that If not man I'm outta here I'm just a sleep walking robot that's outta gear I stick my nose out the water to the sky for air Lama sabachthani (translates to 'why have you forsaken me') Trying to see light but the devil trying to blind me The grim reaper walking with a shovel right behind me Trying to introduce me to the untimely unkindly Walk the line finely like johnny cash But I keep getting visits from the ghost of the past So I spark another l then I go to the pad.
