JOHN DENVER lyrics - Greatest Hits No. 3

The Gold And Beyond

Original and similar lyrics
This song was first released on the Greatest Hits Vol 3 album. It is the only album this song appears on. On a snow crystal morning Some place close to heaven On the side of a mountain In a race for the sun In a matter of moments The dream of a lifetime is won There's a fire in the heart And it feels like the hunger The spirit is burning Consumed by the flame To be one of the best Of the best in the world Is its name To be faster and farther Than anyone's ever before To be braver and stronger And truer and then even more To be all that you can be And all that you've ever longed for In the eyes of a mountain All people are equal In the eyes of all people Our souls can be seen In the course of our struggle We'll know what humanity means To be all that you can be And all that you've ever longed for We gather together To face one another We gather in silence And sing in the sun We gather in peace To go for the gold and beyond Words by John Denver, Music by John Denver and Lee Holdridge

The Fountain Of Lamneth

RUSH "A Farewell To Kings"
I. In the Valley I am born I am me I am new I am free Look at me I am young Sight unseen Life unsung My eyes have just been opened And they're open very wide Images around me Don't identify inside Just one blur I recognize The one that soothes and feeds My way of life is easy And as simple are my needs Yet my eyes are drawn toward The mountain in the east Fascinates and captivates Gives my heart no peace The mountain holds the sunrise In the prison of the night 'Til bursting forth from rocky chains The valley floods with light Living one long sunrise For to me all things are new I've never watched the sky grow pale Or strolled through fields of dew I do not know of dust to dust I live from breath to breath I live to climb that mountain To the Fountain of Lamneth II. Didacts and Narpets (and the shouting may not be perfect...) Stay! Go! Work! No! Learn! Live! Earn! Give! Stay or fight? What's right? Listen! III. No One At the Bridge Crying back to consciousness The coldness grips my skin The sky is pitching violently Drawn by shrieking winds Seaspray blurs my vision Waves roll by so fast Save my ship of freedom I'm lashed helpless to the mast Remembering when first I held The wheel in my own hands I took the helm so eagerly And sailed for distant lands But now the sea's too heavy And I just...I just don't understand Why must my crew desert me? When I need...I need a guiding hand... Call out for direction And there's no one there to steer Shout out for salvation But there's no one there to hear Cry out supplication For the maelstrom is near Scream out desperation But no one cares to hear IV. Panacea The whiteness of confusion Is unfolding from my mind I stare around in wonder Have I left my life behind? I catch the scent of ambergris And turn my head, surprised My gaze is caught and held and I Am helpless...mesmerized Panacea, liquid grace Oh let me touch your fragile face Enchantment falls around me And I know I cannot leave Here's a meaning for my life A shelter from the storm Pacify my troubles with Her body, soft and warm Naked in our unity A smile for every tear Gentle hands that promise me Comfort through the years Yet I know I must be gone Before the light of dawn Panacea, passion pure I can't resist your gentle lure My heart will lie beside you And my wandering body grieves V. Bacchus Plateau Another endless day Silhouettes of grey Another glass of wine Drink with eyes that shine To days without that chill at morning Nights time out of mind Chorus Draw another goblet From the cask of '43 Crimson misty memory Hazy glimpse of me Give me back my wonder I've something more to give I guess it doesn't matter There's not much more to live Another foggy dawn The mountain almost gone Another doubtful fear The road is not so clear My soul grows ever weary And the end is ever near Chorus VI. The Fountain Look! The mist is rising And the sun is peaking through See the steps grow lighter As I reach their final few Hear the dancing waters I must be drawing near Feel, my heart is pounding With embattled hope and fear Now, at last I fall before The Fountain of Lamneth I thought I would be singing But I'm tired...out of breath Many journeys end here But, the secret's told the same: Life is just a candle, and a dream Must give it flame The key, the end, the answer Stripped of their disguise Still it's all confusion And tears spring to my eyes Though I've reached a signpost It's really not the end Like Old Sol behind the mountain I'll be coming up again. I'm in motion I am still I am crying I am...still. I'm together I'm apart I'm forever At the start Still... I am.

The Dance

Count Raven
Silence in the air, people are nervous, everyone is in fear This is the day the earth stands still, the sinners they must beware All through history people have tried to solve its mystery And today you have, can you still tell me that you don't believe I don't believe my own eyes I see a door it's open to paradise I see a new star coming in the black sky And I know that I am never gonna die The earth it starts to tremble as it draws its final breath A bodily chain reaction just like a man when he's near death People running scared, something siniter's in the way It's not science fiction, this is the final day Cosmic laws they cease today This is the return to beginning of time And there is a new world coming out of Orions belt And the strangest presence I have never felt The signs been in the fields so long You wouldn't believe it, you couldn't receive it Talking of the Kingdom come You refuse to see it, best is to leave it It is right in front of your eyes Hatred increasing, nature is leaving Our course was locked in suicide since the foundation No more grief and tears The shock waves start to ease down as our senses coming to The preparation has begun for the old world and the new Imagine people from the past and the future in the same place The four horsemen, the four dimensions, the same space

The Ballad Of Hollis Brown

Entombed
Originally performed by Bob Dylan Hollis Brown He lived on the outside of town Hollis Brown He lived on the outside of town With his wife and five children And his cabin fallin' down You looked for work and money And you walked a rugged mile You looked for work and money And you walked a rugged mile Your children are so hungry That they don't know how to smile Your baby's eyes look crazy They're a-tuggin' at your sleeve Your baby's eyes look crazy They're a-tuggin' at your sleeve You walk the floor and wonder why With every breath you breathe The rats have got your flour Bad blood it got your mare The rats have got your flour Bad blood it got your mare If there's anyone that knows Is there anyone that cares? You prayed to the Lord above Oh please send you a friend You prayed to the Lord above Oh please send you a friend Your empty pockets tell yuh That you ain't a-got no friend Your babies are crying louder It's pounding on your brain Your babies are crying louder now It's pounding on your brain Your wife's screams are stabbin' you Like the dirty drivin' rain Your grass it is turning black There's no water in your well Your grass is turning black There's no water in your well You spent your last lone dollar On seven shotgun shells Way out in the wilderness A cold coyote calls Way out in the wilderness A cold coyote calls Your eyes fix on the shotgun That's hangin' on the wall Your brain is a-bleedin' And your legs can't seem to stand Your brain is a-bleedin' And your legs can't seem to stand Your eyes fix on the shotgun That you're holdin' in your hand There's seven breezes a-blowin' All around the cabin door There's seven breezes a-blowin' All around the cabin door Seven shots ring out Like the ocean's pounding roar There's seven people dead On a South Dakota farm There's seven people dead On a South Dakota farm Somewhere in the distance There's seven new people born

Sleep In Sanity

ANATHEMA "Serenades"
Undying odyssey..... a myriad of times The soul has seen Through eyes of heaven The imperium of earth Nothing left to perceive Help me to escape from this existence I yearn for an answer... can you help me ? I¹m drowning in a sea of abused visions and shattered dreams In somnolent illusion... I¹m paralysed Infinity distraction...... A pious human disorder Blind to passage of souls Conclusion from one remembrance Help me to escape..... Transfixed... I gaze through my window at a world lying under a shroud of frost. In a forlorn stupor I feel the burning of staring eyes, yet no-one is here. Detached from reality, in the knowing of dreams, we know the entity of ensuing agony waits to clasp us in its cold breast, in an empty room. We awake and it¹s true. I dreamt of the sun¹s demise, awoke to a bleak morning. In the emptiness I beheld face for the dead light is a foretelling of what will be..... I saw a soul drift from life, through death, and arrive at Elysian fields in welcoming song. Yet I stand in a dusk-filled room despondently watching the passing of a kindred spirit... and there is no song... just a delusion of silence.

[Verse 1: Joey Bada$$] And I guess it's my turn to shine The bright light I was starin' at turn lime And the green stuff turned to slime, and grime Everybody want to be your blood cousin When you're buzzing Fine, I give 'em my other line, another line Word to mother, I'm goosed up My two fucks Two cups, another dubiant entrée She fell in that Bombay, now she tumble dry lingerie Chardonnay nothing but the bottle of emotion But the love potion when it sprays And they just caught up in the days Let me show you how I feel these Jays The cheese stays high like Dr. J My flow is like land the boats, dock the planes He ain't do dope but cop the chains For more feens (morphines), some antidote to stop the pain Now my stream floods these streets They can't stop the rain All right I need them back To blast, to blast me out of sight Like a satellite Vibe all night A satellite [Verse 2: Chuck Strangers] I take a day off Let the trees take some weight off My mental's just a fact, Bannon's got the instrumental I keep niggas on their toes So you got creases in your Forces My verses they're important, yo your verses they are boring I am not of this Earth bro I'm a satellite that's bound to fight But we're down to light, 'n light the fuck up Vibe all night [Verse 3: Kirk Knight] As I roll the die Like my first drink was just the brink of a crooked eye But don't blame the ice for the I U KEL Oh God couldn't see past 'em If his name is puff pass, no derive Two dubs I got 40 on my hit list Just smoking drinks both the broken in-glass like old English Are you good bro? Is your eyes dilated from the kush 'n Nuvo? This new for the life Like a Nubian with the doobie cold eyes Better smell the coffee I'm a coughing That means I'm sick widdit, spit it out Kill it like airborne diseases Is this why the rap game is this easy? Like please eat your vegetables So I took a dose of the edible Ain't an overdose Already a rap monster fucking overload Hopping up on stepping stones So we making stepping stones Turn up that tichrome Be back to introduce This is Messiah and the eyes are hopeless Please open my divide eyes through the world flex This ship Don't this ship make my people wanna jump? No disrespect, that's my man full of pump Don't this ship Don't this ship Don't this ship To blast, to blast me out of sight like a satellite Don't this ship make my people wanna jump? No disrespect, that's my man full of pump Don't this ship Don't this ship Don't this ship make my people wanna jump? [Verse 4: Dessy Hinds] Syrup sounder Come and hear blunt-smoking philosopher Smoking with a joint to get you open like a chakra No time for the roster in this rap game Go lead the way, let them lead the way And niggas know where they need to play Freeing the ways to amplify the idealect So another with shot Since the project days Like I was iron with tech Kept the eye on the text Make 'em see my eye in the Lex Give her my blood sweat And I ain't injecting selecting the soul Cause my body and soul can't be re and stole Special with the flow to make Niagara fall It's over for the systematic rapper robotics Crashing my logic These niggas hooked on hooks and Hooked on Phonics Well hook don't phonics and the pocket get 'em hooked on chronic Cause pain conditions from the page conditions Racing like Sonic inhaling the tonic They couldn't grade my brain in a college Feens providing rockets for your mind like Jesus behind it So we had to squeeze in knowledge To pile it when the green sees wallet Anything to let the green seize wallet Taking forever and a century with sentence speeds Like a penitentiary to build cell blocks to block your memory Catch me on the enemy's territory Telling terrible story with a terror The Era ends with a good night story Don't this ship make my people wanna jump? No disrespect, that's my man full of pump Don't this ship Don't this ship Don't this ship make my people wanna jump?
