JOHN DENVER lyrics - Aerie

Blow Up Your Tv

Original and similar lyrics
(Prine) She was a levelheaded dancer on the road to alcohol, I was just a soldier on my way to Montreal. Well, she pressed her chest against me about the time the jukebox broke. She gave me a peck on the back of the neck, and these are the words she spoke. Blow up your TV, throw away your paper, go to the country, build you a home. Plant a little garden, eat a lot of peaches, try and find Jesus on your own. I sat there at the table, and I acted real naive. Cause I knew that topless lady, she had something up her sleeve. She danced around the room awhile and she did the hoochy coo. Yeah, singing a song all night long, telling me what to do. Blow up your TV, throw away your paper, go to the country, build you a home. Plant a little garden, eat a lot of peaches, try and find Jesus on your own. Well, I was young and hungry, and about to leave that place. Just as I was going. she looked me in the face. I said 'You must know the answer,' she said 'No, but I'll give it a try.' To this day we've been living our way, here is the reason why. We blew up your TV, threw away your paper, went to the country, build us a home. Had a lot of children, fed 'em on peaches, they all found Jesus on their own.

AESOP ROCK "Appleseed"
[Aesop Rock:] Yo, I surf an axiom kicked in a center fold of ugly tenements Oh distribute sour inhalants regulate lobby developments Today summon the rug rat oblivious to what's delicate Tomorrow siphon imperfection out the fetus prior to selling it There is a brain in the thicket tap circle cupping the port to accord it Teeter thorn storm plunges more but conformers the pouring's half the entry Plated pearly gates a chanted axis with high gentry hinging our binging on Public picket fencing Squirming in terms in conditions of un-satisfact destiny magnet Where the ebony should of cracked shit ratio tragic Lose sight suit oh mavericks clash at futility pageants I post froze in a blaze at a grand combustion A leader's deception connection wiper with a barn responds his friend With an eye socket full of needles and a will to die for nothing And that's glory abide thy crass itinerary barely suitable for common slum cats And the lemmings will follow you to the blood bath All aboard that awful train through shames patch where I'd trade my window Seat for one pane of replacement stain glass, see I bow to the the gods of opacity I don't mind y'all looking in, it's just watching Sin City steam slips under my skin And I'm about half way to nausea, half way to contentment 2 halves post made a dance evoked a whole lot of resentment Build a pen around master dome patriarch close to four peters Woke to rope cubicles combines with combines suitably ingenious Let's soak my feet in lake infinity the time vibe strapped to dignity my Symmetries vivid image still can't mimic the victory comfort is a drug and I'm numb as fuck Yet some prefer the hum and others tend to suck the life out of the crux like One, two, three, four, and I'm a tug dummy hug the hungry pull the lever push the button Drink the garbage split the homage reap the harvest target everyone Beckon eyes idols that have a malleable colony till the fire ant dropped the Sweet leaf grief your dreams a needle in a needle stack claiming safety pin physics Baby tin blizzards collide while ole iron sides trust the rivets I'm sick of the picker the litter soaking the spot lit when I know they Know they owe all thanks to the end all Aesop Rock shit watch this Build me a home; build me a home of brick and wood and everything good With a front porch where I can jar fire flies by night And smoke stogs till the day meets twilight Build me a home, build me a home with a green grass hill with running a water In a backyard with a sandbox and a garden of foreign flowers Build me a home with a basement and an attic Where I can store remnants of the day I once slept in build me a home No skull is sacred in the races Locked in a pagan doctrine watching born again faces gamble up patience fail blatant Ochre and sienna war paintings stain plague community harking as wrapped It's overlooking out crops Give you one life to laugh at catalog bliss on The least common attachment ten seconds of glittering silence Pilot is flight redefine stagnant Most emotions host an entire lesson Congressional less one stone merely for the exceptional spectacle now Listen the pause heed tall falls the voidance of the suit dispersed Await a straightened arrows a perfect circle has been fastened to the Blimp side buy in my grin and clusters that's better than colony my own Fathers son is the holy ghost suck that theology I king for a day of Peasant for a pleasant life blood on the easel and my eagle eyelids Spots runaway pirates look I despise squatters with a, ohh, cry me a River a quarter how'd you afford that dog and sour dialogue I put my hook in the pond I put my worm In the hook I put my trust in the worm That he'd bring me something to cook I felt a tug on my line and I lugged a trash can On my pole with a note from the worm attached that Read, "Thanks for nothing asshole!

Never Gonna Be As Big As Jesus

I could move to Hollywood get my teeth capped I know I could be a big star on the silver screen just like James Dean I could be a star I could climb the corporate ladder buy, sell, and liquidate Maybe be just like the Beatles melodic, rocking heavyweights I could learn to sing and dance if I only had a chance I could be a big rock star I could be anything I wanted to I wanted to I could be anything but one thing's true Never gonna be as big as Jesus never gonna hold the world in my hand never gonna be as big as Jesus never gonna build a promised land but that's alright okay with me I could build a tower to heaven get on top and touch the sky I could write a million songs all designed to glorify I could be about as good good as any human could but that won't get me by I could be anything I wanted to I wanted to I could do anything but one thing's true Never gonna be as big as Jesus never gonna hold the world in my hand never gonna be as big as Jesus never gonna build a promised land but that's alright okay with me
