Lizard

Original and similar lyrics
A:Prince Rupert Awakes Farewell the temple master's bells His kiosk and his black worm seed Courtship solely of his word With Eden guaranteed. For now Prince Rupert's tears of glass Make saffron sabbath eyelids bleed Scar the sacred tablet of wax On which the Lizards feed. Wake your reason's hollow vote Wear your blizzard season coat Burn a bridge and burn a boat Stake a Lizard by the throat. Go Polonius or kneel The reapers name their harvest dawn All your tarnished devil's spoons Will rust beneath our corn. Now bears Prince Rupert's garden roam Across his rain tree shaded lawn Lizard bones become the clay- And there a Swan is born Wake your reasons' hollow vote Wear your blizzard season coat Burn a bridge and burn a boat Stake a Lizard by the throat. Gone soon Piepowder's moss-weed court Round which upholstered Lizards sold Visions to their leaden flock Of rainbows' ends and gold. Now tales Prince Rupert's peacock brings Of walls and trumpets thousand fold Prophets chained for burning masks And reels of dream unrolled . . . B:Bolero - the Peacock's Tale (Instrumental) C:The Battle of Glass Tears Night enfolds her cloak of holes Around the river meadow. Old moon-light stalks by broken ploughs Hides spokeless wheels in shadow. Sentries lean on thorn wood spears Blow on their hands, stare eastwards. Burnt with dream and taut with fear Dawn's misty shawl upon them. Three hills apart great armies stir Spit oat and curse as day breaks. Forming lines of horse and steel By even yards march forward. D:Big Top (Instrumental)

Across The Rainbow Bridge

Ayreon
And now - This Rainbow Bridge. An iridescent span of tears. So fragile, and yet, so strong. Will it support your mortal shells? Or will you fall into the fiery... brine... below? KNIGHT: I hark back to olden days To her and her magic ways Two souls in harmony In an endless sea The cruel wings of destiny Carried you away from me And left a heart unstilled That never will be filled ROMAN WARRIOR: Beyond these Stygian skies Our fortress lies! ALL: Across the rainbow bridge! ROMAN WARRIOR: We'll span the sea of tears And conquer all our fears... inside KNIGHT: I'd sacrifice my very life To have you at my side Like a dream, I see your face Through the misty haze We were one amid the stars And time never healed my scars Deep inside, the sadness burns I must return! ALL: Beyond these Stygian skies Our fortress lies! Across the rainbow bridge! We'll span the sea of tears And conquer all our fears! Forsake this mourning field And drop your shield! Across the rainbow bridge! Run to the other side Where all our dreams abide! HIPPIE: Scarlet, Crimson, Rosy red I must be dead Or stoned out of my head NATIVE AMERICAN GIRL: Hoooooooooh! HIPPE: Orange, Yellow, Tangerine The acid queen In a psychedelic scene NATIVE AMERICAN GIRL: Hoooooooooh! HIPPE: Ochre, Chestnut, Chocolate brown I'm upside down On a cosmic eiderdown NATIVE AMERICAN GIRL: Hoooooooooh! HIPPE: Ivory, Milky, Chalky white The stars ignite I vanish in the light... that burns so bright! Step forward, step forward! Beyond lies your goal: The Electric Castle! The past is gone! Do you wish to lapse in limbo forever? No no no! Be resolute! There are trials ahead. And rewards for those who strive. Hah! The surreal search endures.... ROMAN KNIGHT: Run, run! The past is gone, it cannot be undone! Run run! The future is here, our fate is drawing near! Run run! Run run! Run run! The past is gone, it cannot be undone! Run run! Run run! Run run! The future is here, our fate is drawing near! Run run! Run run! ALL: Beyond these Stygian skies Our fortress lies! Across the rainbow bridge! We'll span the sea of tears And conquer all our fears! Forsake this mourning field And drop your shield! Across the rainbow bridge! Run to the other side Where all our dreams (abide) EGYPTIAN WOMAN: Aaaaaayyyyyyeh!

The Man Who Wrote Danny Boy

JOE JACKSON "Night Music"
It happened one night At three in the morning The devil appeared in my studio room And he said I'm your pal And I'll make you a deal Blow away your struggle And I'll take your soul for a toy After rubbing my eyes I looked all around me At the half-finished drivel I'd worked on for days And I told him my dream Was to live for all time In some perfect refrain Like the man who wrote Danny Boy And I said if you're real, then I'll ask you a question While most of us turn into ashes or dust Just you and that other guy go on forever But who writes the history And who do I trust? He gave me a wink And he said it was funny How mortals would pour all their blood, sweat and tears Onto tape, onto paper Or into the air To be lost and forgotten Outside of his kind employ Then I thought I could hear a great sound in the distance Of whiskey-soaked singing And laughter and cheers And they're saying, that song could bring tears to a glass eye So pass me the papers, I'll sign them in blood And the smell of the brimstone was turned into greasepaint And the roar of the crowd like the furies of hell And I hear the applause and I hear the bells ringing And the sound of a woman's voice from the next room Saying come to me now Come lay down beside me Whatever you're doing you're too gone to see You can't hold onto shadows, no more than to years So be glad for the pleasures We're young enough to enjoy So maybe I'm drunk Or maybe a liar Or maybe we're all living inside a dream You can say what you like When I'm gone, then you'll see I'll be down in the dark Down underground With Shakespeare and Bach And the man who wrote Danny Boy

Trapped In The Wake Of A Dream

MUDVAYNE "The End Of All Things To Come"
Do I deserve these beatings Hating me, well then, Cut, cut the noose and let me fall away... I'm, growing weak and tired of you and your little shoving games fucking... pushing me. You pulled the trigger, trapped in, the wake, of your Dream You're all killers. Always fucking pushing me; insulting me; I've overcome; I have found the strength of gods in me. Crushing All unwilling; This is so unstoppable. Hard as nails, hook that holds, reach down and find the strength of many in you. My sanctuary... calling my name, so I run through... to the light, weeping through a cloud. Darkened, by a tainted dream, of me, being pummeled by the tide, crushing, killing me But I can't wake up, trapped in, the wake of a Dream You're all killers. Always fucking pushing me; insulting me; I've overcome; I have found the strength of gods in me. Crushing All unwilling; This is so unstoppable. Hard as nails, hook that holds, reach down and find the strength of many in you. Call it; call a truce. I'm believing in it more and more. Comfort; purge the truth, I'll belive it. I'm so weak and sore, shadowed Hide and seek, but you never looked. I wait behind the door call out; bite the hand that is feeding... Compassion no more. I hope I never wake up. Dream-sewing, filters, distort reality of what is mine through light this mind awakens I draw the line from then and now, awake and dreaming, forgotten past future becomes mine. Throw the chains, all away, take control, of your life. Powers known, this is my... Throw the chains, all away, take control, of your life. Powers known, this is my... Dream You're all killers. Always fucking pushing me; insulting me; I've overcome; I have found the strength of gods in me. Crushing All unwilling; This is so unstoppable. Hard as nails, hook that holds, reach down and find the strength of many in you.

The First Man On Earth

Ayreon "Dream Sequencer"
10. The First Man On Earth 'It is 50000 B.C. The world is almost empty; nature is still untouched by man. Off in the distance, a clan of ape-like creatures gather near a cliff side. But I am the first to stand. I must be...' [Neil Morse, Mark McCrite] In fields of green, vast as the oceans Is this a dream, is it evermore? A million years, fast as a notion I stand alone here on the silent shore I'm after prey in the fields Shelter in a cave from the cold and lonely nights And now it all seems so real Warming at the fireside beneath the pale moonlight This is the dawn of time I am the first to stand Looking through the eyes of the primal man This is the dawn of time Witnessing the birth I am the first man on earth The skies of blue reach to the heavens They go on and on forevermore No avenues, no city sidewalks Planet Mars is but ancient lore This place has all that I need No computers glowing screens, no industrial machines Somehow it all seems surreal Memories of days gone by, a slowly fading scene No one here to blame me No one here to hurt So much space here to occupy my mind I can breathe the breath of virgin land The firefly at nighttime The sounds of nothing known And I belong here like I never have before The wandering child returning home When twilight falls, red is the sunset Planets appear across the colored sky No prison walls, no war, no bloodshed Hard to believe this new world will die I wish that I could stay for a while In the dream world that the sequencer creates And though it all seems so real Now I fear the time is gone, I feel its heavy weight Hold on to this moment in time Savor a life how it used to be Hold on to the world in its prime Breathe in the air, feel the energy 

Save The Children

JOEY BADA$$ "B4.Da.$$"
[Verse 1:] It's all a hidden history, and mysteries I see vividly, hysteria Cause misery on the interior Shit gets more scarier, I'm never in fear Just a little inferior in some areas But I share, wisdom with Sumerian's Somewhere we in the place Peace means harmony, not war and armory But fuck that, cock your gun back This survival of the fittest Some cats get boxed in where they litter These niggas don't beez in the trap, they like beez in the track Get smoked out and I ain't talkin' bout what you toke out You toked out for really thinkin' that this shit is a silly dream When actually reality ain't what it really seem And I ain't actin' on the scene, nigga's scream The actions ain't screened, just well-schemed I'm tryna' have wealth for my well-being By eighteen, pockets healthy green What the fuck is twelve beams? I need the cake and cream The stakes is high like fiends off a dream Jet streaming having cuisine With the best season since the vet season Carry a vest, you know the reason I'm in Chi-raq and I'm getting blown like the breezes The chicken strip teasers Thighs, legs and the breast part is the cleavage She even lick it down to the bone marrow She in love but I ain't got a bow and arrow I'm known to jack the booty like I'm Sparrow [Bridge:] They ain't tryna' see me in the battle The lines is too narrow They couldn't even outshine my shadow They don't want the beef nigga, let alone the cattle They just living out the saddle, so sad though [Hook - Sample:] Black in public, black democrats Black educator, black entertainer Black, black businessman, black people are rumbling Save the chil [repeated] [Verse 2:] Okay, they sleeping on the crack, they overdose Overdose on high fructose, rolling toast till I'm over-throat And over-slowed, I been speakin' over tones Low but keep them L's high, legends live long And we gon' be forever, this for the Era They tried to tell us we too deep in the flow The mo' the better, the mo' clever, et cetara, whatever Why do they sweat us? Dead us, they just met us, but they won't forget us They don't know better than the worst case I be headed for first place Purchase they position cause' they worship oppositions But I to had no pot to piss in, and so spot on in this instant And they still ain't got my decision, I won't stand under no man Except my high supplier, he got the fire, I got the lighter I hit the spliff and this what I'm spittin' Like it's gas liquids that I'm drippin', pimpin' [Hook - Sample]
