KING CRIMSON lyrics - THRAK

One Time

Original and similar lyrics
one eye goes laughing, one eye goes crying through the trials and trying of one life one hand is tied, one step gets behind in one breath we're dying i've been waiting for the sun to come up waiting for the showers to stop waiting for the penny to drop one time and i've been standing in a cloud of plans standing on the shifting sands hoping for an open hand one time

Words Don't Come Easy

Hollies "Romany"
(Jennings) Standing in the shadow Of a Spanish lady Second hand bargain With a song so sad And a rose in her hand Was crying Lonely rooms in back of bars Bright lights and sitting out in the stars There was room to write a poem But the words don't come easy They're hung on frozen lips standing there While the world's anticipating love And the words don't come easy Lady laughs a laughing tear and says All we really need today Is the sun in our life The sun in our life Money was only mean to buy time No money left over Made the street to show that the door was open Out in the silence of the angry crowd Only the beggars crying aloud Not a precious thing was spoken But the words don't come easy They're hung on frozen lips standing there While the world's anticipating love And the words don't come easy Lady laughs a laughing tear and says All we really need today Is the sun in our life The sun in our life

Hallowed Be Thy Name

JOAN BAEZ "Very Early Joan"
I'm waiting in my cold cell when the bell begins to chime Reflecting on my past life and it doesn't have much time 'Cause at 5 o'clock they take me to the gallows pole The sands of time for me are running low When the priest comes to read me the last rites I take a look through the bars at the last sights Of a world that has gone very wrong for me Can it be theres some sort of error Hard to stop the surmounting terror Is it really the end not some crazy dream Somebody please tell me that I'm dreaming It's not so easy to stop from screaming But words escape me when I try to speak Tears they flow but why am I crying After all I am not afraid of dying Don't believe that there is never an end As the guards march me out to the courtyard Someone calls from a cell God be with you If theres a God then why has he let me die? As I walk all my life drifts before me And though the end is near I'm not sorry Catch my soul 'cause it's willing to fly away Mark my words please believe my soul lives on Please don't worry now that I have gone I've gone beyond to see the truth When you know that your time is close at hand Maybe then you'll begin to understand Life down there is just a strange illusion.

Theme From Mahogany

DIANA ROSS
* Do you know where you're going to? Do you like the things that life is showing you? Where are you going to? Do you know? Do you get what you're hoping for? When you look behind you there's no open door What are you hoping for? Do you know? Once we were standing still in time Chasing the fantasies That filled our minds You know how I loved you But my spirit was free Laughing at the questions That you once asked of me Chorus: * Do you know...? Now looking back at all we've planned We let so many dreams Just slip through our hands Why must we wait so long Before we'll see How sad the answers To those questions can be? Chorus: * Do you know...?

For You

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN "Disc: 1"
Princess cards she sends me with her regards Barroom eyes shine vacancy, to see her you gotta look hard Wounded deep in battle, I stand stuffed like some soldier undaunted To her Cheshire smile. I'll stand on file, she's all I ever wanted But you let your blue walls get in the way of these facts Honey, get your carpetbaggers off my back You wouldn't even give me time to cover my tracks You said Here's your mirror and your ball and jacks But they're not what I came for, and I'm sure you see that too I came for you, for you, I came for you, but you did not need my urgency I came for you, for you, I came for you, but your life was one long emergency And your cloud line urges me, and my electric surges free Crawl into my ambulance, your pulse is getting weak Reveal yourself all now to me girl while you've got the strength to speak 'Cause they're waiting for you at Bellevue with their oxygen masks But I could give it all to you now if only you could ask And don't call for your surgeon even he says it's too late It's not your lungs this time, it's your heart that holds your fate Don't give me money, honey, I don't want it back You and your pony face and your union jack Well take your local joker and teach him how to act I swear I was never that way even when I really cracked Didn't you think I knew that you were born with the power of a locomotive Able tomleap tall buildings in a single bound And your Chelsea suicide with no apparent motive You could laugh and cry in a single sound And your strength is devastating in the face of all these odds Remember how I kept you waiting when it was my turn to be the god You were not quite half so proud when I found you broken on the beach Remember how I poured salt on your tongue and hung just out of reach And the band they played the homecoming theme as I caressed your cheek They ragged, jagged melody she still clings to me like a leach But that medal you wore on your chest always got in the way Like a little girl with a traphy so soft to buy her way We were both hitchhikers but you had your ear tuned to the roar Of some metal-tempered engine on an alien, distant shore So you, left to find a better reason than the one we were living for And it's not that nursery mouth I came back for It's not the way you're stretched out on the floor 'Cause I've broken all your windows and I've rammed through all your doors And who am I to ask you to lick my sores And you should know that's true I came for you, for you, I came for you, but you did not need my urgency I came for you, for you, I came for you, but your life was one long emergency And your cloud line urges me, and my electric surges free

Carry Me

Hangnail "Facing Changes"
I'll step aside this time around. Open ears await a still and quiet voice. Not with the timing that I have. Ready to make any change required of me. When I cant see where this uncharted life of mine is going, all I ask is carry me. And when I cant see past the cloudy skies that are looming up ahead, hold my hand and carry me. Here with the world surrounding me, enduring everyday is more than I can do. I lack the patience that it takes, so I am standing on the promise made to me.
