KING CRIMSON lyrics - Lizard

Happy Family

Original and similar lyrics
Happy family, one hand clap, four went by and none come back. Brother Judas, ash and sack, swallowed aphrodisiac. Rufus, Silas, Jonah too sang, We'll blow our own canoes, Poked a finger in the zoo, punctured all the ballyhoo Whipped the world and beat the clock, wound up with their share of stock. Silver Rolls from golden rock, shaken by a knock, knock, knock. Happy family, wave that grin, what goes round must surely spin; Cheesecake, mousetrap, Grip-Pipe-Thynne cried out, We're not Rin Tin Tin. Uncle Rufus grew his nose, threw away his circus clothes Cousin Silas grew a beard, drew another flask of weird Nasty Jonah grew a wife, Judas drew his pruning knife. Happy family one hand clap, four went on but none came back Happy family, pale applause, each to his revolving doors. Silas searching, Rufus neat, Jonah caustic, Jude so sweet. Let their sergeant mirror spin if we lose the barbers win; Happy family one hand clap, four went on but none came back

Thoughts Before Me

AMBER PACIFIC "Fading Days"
So why should I take your hand when you can't promise happy endings? It's starting to get old That story yet untold Reflect before we walk into What we already know Won't be so easy Looking back at high school drama Didn't try to fix what we thought were problems Done with writing empty letters Is there no other way? Staring at your reflection every day Can make or break my heart away When you won't listen to what's hard for me to say Those tear stained eyes can make me feel so sad And once again we're further away from what we never had So why should I take your hand when you can't promise happy endings? Just run away with so much left to share It's just not enough When we're so much more than friends We're much too young to throw away our cares There's no sense in regretting what's been said in our yesterdays We can't take back what's done But we can look ahead And I would walk so much further just to know what I'm doing here And there's no end to what I'd give to know just what you meant when you said How can I feel alive when we can't help but break our backs just to survive? Is this another time we can't control our lives? Those tear stained eyes can make me feel so sad And once again we're further away from what we never had So why should I take your hand when you can't promise happy endings? Just run away with so much left to share It's just not enough When we're so much more than friends We're much too young to throw away our cares How can I feel alive when we can't help but break our backs just to survive? Is this another time we can't control our lives? Those tear stained eyes can make me feel so sad And once again we're further away from what we never had So why should I take your hand when you can't promise happy endings? Just run away with so much left to share It's just not enough When we're so much more than friends We're much too young to throw away our cares

This Ain't Living

G. Love And Special Sauce "G Love And Special Sauce"
This town's so hype it's got soul As a Philly cat I'm with the roll And the swing of my things How they work like clockwork Tick tock tick tock Times aways lurking in your head Got to go to work and get fed That man didn't eat but he goes to sleep Gets up at dawn not to see the sunrise But because it's too damn cold outside Underneath the bridge they pump the city's bilge Into the alley they sweetp the city's filth The flowers wilt the flowers wilt Don't tell me about no game Cause that is a man And his family Revolution family Look at the family Dig the family They're living the wrong way Can't get nothing Don't get nothing all they wanted was Something like a job -- mercy mercy But its robbed -- mercy mercy And there's so many street side Beggars and disabled veterans Glass-eyed and peddling Drunk and just meddling So you conclude it's their fault They like the street they must like the asphalt But that is man woman and children The system has stalled shelter's home That's not what I call it I call it bad health Some say help themselves Yo if you you gots it Everyone hundred people a dollar in change Everyone hundred people a dollar in change This ain't living This ain't living Oh no You know it's rough, had enough fo holding a Cup full of spare change The doctor diagnosed me as a Dome full of bad brains So, toe to toe with employers Cause they're telling me no Hooked on prescription drugs So I stay broke, I'd run away But you can't run away from Yourself or your health so I deal with the cards that I'm dealt Tweet-a -leet- leet This morning bird sounding sweet Though I sleep on the streets I have a feeling I'm free From society's hand picked hypocrisy Mercy mercy don't give a damn for me Mercy mercy now what am I going to eat Peek through the windows of the restaurant Peple eating caviar fifth bucks on lunch A hand-me-down meal Full of god kows what Put it away in my gut Quick and then I wonder Why I'm sick, brick for brick I know the city like my hand print Just a pit in the gutter Of a skid-row ditch But I'll survive the pain Let me know I'm alive But I still feel that This ain't living Check my beat dig they rhythm Me belly full but me hungry so I fill it Once I start gaining taxes start taking Cause the governments perfected funk faking Breaking me down striking me down What goes around comes around but I keep rising seeing through the lies and The surprise comes when I see myself The music I felt I'm on This ain't living This ain't living Oh no

The Leveller

Inkubus Sukkubus
He comes as a darkened knight Upon the raging storm And as an angel of love he reaps the harvest corn He comes as a leveller to make one and all the same His song on the western wind to deliver us from pain Take his hand For only he'll lead you on to the promised hand He is the only true friend of the poor Can you not see that only he can ever set you free He is the only true friend of the poor And all the kings and the queens and the generals Dread the gaze of his eyes But to the sick and the cold and the starving He's a blessing in disguise For his sweet kiss brings release And they shall suffer no more So they don't fear when he comes A-knock-knock-knocking on the door

Doberman Pharaoh

CRADLE OF FILTH "Damnation And A Day"
To and fro, through freeze and thaws From zenith to nadir The universal tug of war Saw lines drawn in the sands appear Divisions of a promised land And Hell for those that dwelt Beneath a Pharaoh's granite hand Where death wed something else Millennia swam passed Since the covened Ark Ran aground on Ararat... But anew, tempered shadows grew Out of Midian, strewing fear Over verdant lawns, the resurgent storms Led a desert son to sear From the palace orchard I espied... (Where swooning trees and moonless beams vied For the painted eye of the royal bride Whose gliding curves were deified) ...beyond Her grace where love would die Wretched destiny arrive Back and forth the prophet came Riddled with a tongue of plagues That would render might Egypt lame If the rage of God stayed unassuaged... I listened with a heavy heart But unveiled to the threats This Hebrew in a jackal's mask Would dredge into effect Thenceforth the Nile reddened s if Set stretched His hand To beset the damned And bruised with flies The skies grew leadened But these miracles, feared Were all but reared By nature, whose law alone Stood that revered This hysteria passed, but still the mark Of Yahveh burned on in the dark One final time, on the steps to the shrine Of Thoth, I twined with fate Let my people go Still my word is no Then Death shall be the deciding plague Since the crimes divine I left behind I'd warred with every tribe that plied In holy vestament, but with time Bored sore of clawing what was mine I laid my bones and made my throne With a view to paradise Thenceforth the heavens deafened As if great beasts Were unleashed to feast on man And with carrion span Michael was weaponed To descend with scorn A dark reform Through Pi-Ramses Skinning mine and Her firstborn Thus suspiria passed each sacred mark Of Yahveh, bleeding in the dark With nauseous dawn, a cry, forlorn Unified from plazas deep The prophet's curse Far worse had worked To wrest the war in me from sleep Drowned in light, a downward light Bathed the snaking exodus Through the wilderness As the Aeons crept Impressed with fresh bloodlust

Under Southern Skies

Nikki Webster
Music by Damien Halloran Verse 1: There's a peace in our hearts and a hope in our hands, We're the family of children; we come from many different lands. Our time is just beginning; our race is yet to run, But if you will take us with you, then we have already won. Chorus: Under the southern skies, Together in this land, Every voice in celebration, A family hand in hand! Under the southern skies, As one we rise, And turn our eyes to see All the wonder of the future In a world of harmony. Verse 2: There's a great spirit rising from the desert to the sea. As it sweeps across this southern land it calls to you and me: We're the dreamers and the dreaming; we're the face of things yet to come. Every child can be a hero if our world can live as one. Chorus: Under the southern skies, Together in this land, Every voice in celebration, A family hand in hand! Under the southern skies, As one we rise, And turn our eyes to see All the wonder of the future In a world of harmony. (Repeat)
