JEWEL lyrics - This Way

The New Wild West

Original and similar lyrics
You see the ghosts of the buffalo Moving both fierce and slow Like glittering prophesies On the edge of the horizon As you drive glittering highways And beaten-up by-ways That straddle and girdle A great and many-faced nation There are lambs in the ghettos Who worship their Gapettos Believing in, though never seeing The strings they think bind them So you write to our congressmen With bleeding pens Of the sorrow within And in return they just send Tickets to the latest Tom Hanks show [CHORUS:] Welcome to the new wild west Each man for himself A nation of civilized steeples And lonely people Welcome to the new wild west There are so many fractions And cue-card reactions It's hard to keep clear The possibilities here 'Cause there's no force to unite them Privilege has ruled for thousands of years Wars have been fought with bibles and tears Yet liberation can't deny the temptation And soon becomes the oppressor Show me a leader who's fit to lead Who don't sew his seed in anything Wounded enough to breed Because after all what fun is power If you can't act like a rock star [CHORUS] See me, I've been cruel I've been petty and unkind But I know my own mind And since it seems clear There's no one leading us here The only thing left it appears Is to task ourselves to be better each time Then those before us We'll be an army of theives Of self-freed slaves Of mild-mannered maids We'll fight with whispers and blades So get ready, a new day is dawning [CHORUS]

For being a wild unruling child A week my granny sent complaints to the juevenile Finally January 1st, the day I hated My granny flew away to Georgia I got reinslated Now I'm off, no more sun for a year of two No more get high no more lampin' with the crew (what could you do?) Nothin' so I lamped for about 20 months and a half Then I got amped (what?) I'm losing my mind, I can't take (what) All of this bullshit I'm about to break (Where?)

Dead Pan

AESOP ROCK
This be the dawning of the age of dead water Stitchin every b-boy fragment Somebody live enough to bust through the belly with a fist up This is a right now generation murdered by the fan base This is adored by the writers-Dead water With a still force activated No I'm not feelin alright Formed by the village of badness and bad karma Punched by the stagnant water gate threw the fickle back But by the window's still three nickels in a piggy bank Caught her with her head up funny stomach from the hunger pains Flashed automatic b-boy with big visions In a matchbox apartment adjacent a crooked starship Who better nation a million's the only remedy Nine dizzy planets with a bullet riding centerpiece Take Me Through The Gates I'm bout as sick of burning find the hottest slacker in a visionary costume Con artist kamikaze conduct Warm for a second to the minute he whored herself to disaster I recognize the cankers by the mechanical stagger As opposed to the skip of big brother bad slapper Theologies who need to keep the cookies caffeinated like a mad hatter that'll sleep now, ask after Calibrate the happy scale when he's soakin wet with a mouthful of dead ideas and see if it tipped zero Stripped ego, tall stories of broad glory I'll be god while you're still living life on a full 40 Or maybe I'll be gramacin, homes poor, broke and lonely Hidden by my billygoat beard and cardboard monstrosity I drink a bad glass of gumption Not bad meaning bad, but bad meaning disgusting Wildchild activater activate sludge enough to dungeon for a accolade and wild ones I committed wild murder, went through the city with a wild merger, woke up in a wildstyle burner Space case, boom box, hate tapes, no lemonade breaks (sweat), no cheddar in labor days Right now, I'm here to break a point of big system plus my screen I was never cursed in a russmeyer bixon Spit sob stories to confront my dick addictions Of the dirty basement at the graves of Salem witches Driving my stake through the face of painstaking business (checkmate) But I scream Misery (better breath take) Out of sleep, lifted up lobotomy, little Jackie paper and a magic dragon sack of dirty shrubbery I'll be the ugliest version of paranoia kingpin set in motion by the secondhand pressure Some get excited when the sun folds under Some get excited when the summer hits the pavement Some get excited when the bullet hits bone and a board I'll escape through the train yard and sleep till it's broken [same old] This be the settling of debt of warm water A mobile b-boy function Somebody mad enough to cut apart the curtain with a fist up This is the dagger in the 88 magnificent memorial This is the heater to a movement-dead water When I broke fifth and got sparks No I'm not feelin alright This be the windshear dodgin dead water Solitary b-boy wonder Somebody fresh enough to reinvent the court with a fist up This is the funky outline around a classic breakbeat This is an agitated moment-dead water With a burnt future, beaten, ugly No I'm not feelin' alright

The Winter Zephyr

Absu
One silver cloud collapsed below the glow of a harvest fullmoon. 'Cause we're here to make an oath and we'll raise our realm in a sky of maroon. Our stratosphere turned dark; however, the Western winds never stopped blowing. All deceiving religions fall, we'll gonna close our hands, and make our own way. Ignite the wroth flames - 3 fires to the sky Before the violence, We stand before the most, wild beast. We'll rape the peace. Once again, We summon you, To join us all! Standing upon the sand of the shores was a Queen, with a crown, of 13 stars. She worships the dragon above, which exalts impiety in that wild beast. Our father is here with us and we'll summon you to join us. If we're bonded by jewels and blood on our fists, then we hail you within kingdoms of mist. Gorias! (The silver sword of the moon) Finias! (The flaming lancet of the sun) The winter zephyr warps the power of Sessair

Mansfield

ELTON JOHN "Songs From The West Coast"
It's a case I guess of paradise lost Ten years back on the hands of the clock In that little house on Mansfield On your old block Sometimes the magic of the past is all we've got Just you and me at a crossroads then Ain't it funny how we were old friends Accidentally thrown together Did we intend To be the romantic novel you never want to end And it's the contact of the eye that meets across a crowded room And how I kind of wound up the lyrics to your tune You said, 'Funny but it feels like I've known you all my life And how it might feel to kiss you on the mouth tonight' In between the Star of David and the California moon The Santa Ana winds blew warm into your room We were crazy, wild and running Blind to the change to come In that little house on Mansfield We'd wake at the break of dawn In an Indian summer gone In the candlelight I can recall Your naked shadow looking ten feet tall Like a wild pony dancing Along the wall Off balance I found love the only place to fall
