Mansun lyrics - Kleptomania

Harris

Original and similar lyrics
On my estate was a man with a flag in his yard And the country deluded him, he toed the establishment line Like a statue, Harris smiled Stood and smile Harris smiled Harris smiled Harris stares The world goes by He stood and died Harris smiles Harris died Lancaster bombers are rusting in sheds in our land While in Parliament square there's a man, a statue in bronze And the statue Harris stared Stood and stared Harris stares Harris stares Counts himself lucky he's English and says it with pride As he stares at the taxis and buses, fumes are inside his prison Where he'll sit for eternity trapped as a bigoted man

Revelation

JOE NICHOLS "Revelation"
Somewhere in Vietnam A nineteen year old soldier stumbled from a bar room He said I must be seeing things That bourbon hit me like a baseball bat In Belfast, Ireland a little lady dropped her shovel in her garden As she raced across her yard to ask her neighbor Mrs. Clancy "What was that?" In Memphis, Tennessee a teacher raised the window closest to the river And the children in her classroom swore they heard a choir singin' down the street In Washington, D.C. a private secretary's lips began to quiver And the President just put aside some papers and rose quickly to his feet I lay in a cheap motel in the arms of someone else's woman When a loud explosion rocked the room and turned the morning into night I jumped out of bed and ran into the street with hardly any clothes on And as the sky lit up my heart stood still and i could feel my face turn white All at once the clouds rolled back and there stood Jesus Christ in all his glory And I realized the saddest eyes I'd ever seen were lookin' straight at me I guess I was awakened by the penetrating sound of my own screaming It didn't take me long to stumble out of ben and fall down on my knees AS tears rolled down my face I cried, "Dear God I'm thankful I was only dreaming. If I never go to hell Lord its because you scared it out of me."

Song For Sharon

JONI MITCHELL "Hejira"
I went to Staten Island. To buy myself a mandolin And I saw the long white dress of love On a storefront mannequin Big boat chuggin' back with a belly full of cars... All for something lacy Some girl's going to see that dress And crave that day like crazy Little Indian kids on a bridge up in Canada They can balance and they can climb Like their fathers before them They'll walk the girders of the Manhattan skyline Shine your light on me Miss Liberty Because as soon as this ferry boat docks I'm headed to the church To play Bingo Fleece me with the gamblers' flocks I can keep my cool at poker But I'm a fool when love's at stake Because I can't conceal emotion What I'm feeling's always written on my face There's a gypsy down on Bleecker Street I went in to see her as a kind of joke And she lit a candle for my love luck And eighteen bucks went up in smoke Sharon, I left my man At a North Dakota junction And I came out to the Big Apple here To face the dream's malfunction Love's a repetitious danger You'd think I'd be accustomed to Well, I do accept the changes At least better than I used to do A woman I knew just drowned herself The well was deep and muddy She was just shaking off futility Or punishing somebody My friends were calling up all day yesterday All emotions and abstractions It seems we all live so close to that line And so far from satisfaction Dora says, Have children! Mama and Betsy say- Find yourself a charity. Help the needy and the crippled or put some time into Ecology. Well, there's a wide wide world of noble causes And lovely landscapes to discover But all I really want right now Is...find another lover When we were kids in Maidstone, Sharon I went to every wedding in that little town To see the tears and the kisses And the pretty lady in the white lace wedding gown And walking home on the railroad tracks Or swinging on the playground swing Love stimulated my illusions More than anything And when I went skating after Golden Reggie You know it was white lace I was chasing Chasing dreams Mama's nylons underneath my cowgirl jeans He showed me first you get the kisses And then you get the tears But the ceremony of the bells and lace Still veils this reckless fool here Now there are 29 skaters on Wolmann rink Circling in singles and in pairs In this vigorous anonymity A blank face at the window stares and stares and stares and stares And the power of reason And the flowers of deep feeling Seem to serve me Only to deceive me Sharon you've got a husband And a family and a farm I've got the apple of temptation And a diamond snake around my arm But you still have your music And I've still got my eyes on the land and the sky You sing for your friends and your family I'll walk green pastures by and by

Land Of Hope And Glory

AUSTRALIAN CRAWL "Between A Rock And A Hard Place"
From the clatter of Honky tonk To the quiet of the range Been thinkin bout silence golden Golden silence change Burning nights gets damper And only one moon was cool As the steam of danger rose From a ripple-less darkened pool Came to America stopped out in the west Ain't no shotgun rider alligator on my chest Hotbed of indifference seedbed of so-so It's push and shove - lord above what a way to go Don't say that you love me Just say you might You keep holding me To things you think are right Yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh Land of hope and glory Seen foreign soldiers Beachhead, army ducks Seen local farmers In their big red pick up trucks Seen drugstore cowboys Who could not find the range Seen fools in the city Who could do with a change Dined with bog business And I stood for the toast Shunned those screenplay writers In their big home on the coast Stood in catherdrals And breathed hard at the sight Heard rhetoric Do I need that stuff tonight

Where You At

JENNIFER HUDSON "I Remember Me"
You said when the storm came That you would be there with your umbrella to block the rain And you said you'd protect me from heartache, Pain, lies, loneliness, and misery You said you'll tear down the walls That were in the way. You promise things would be okay. And I stood there in the freezing cold And I waited for you but you never showed Where you at [x3] Boy you said you would be there for me Where you at [x6] Now you said you'll go to church stop slanging find a real job And go to work and you said you would stay out the streets spend more time with me take away my doubt and fears And fulfill my dreams you said you would be that shoulder for my eyes to cry on That you would be that one that I could depend on and I stood there in the freezing cold and I waited for ya but you never showed boy Where you at [5x] Boy you said you'd be there for me Where you at [x6] And those false promises is much like fake names You painted a picture for me but there was no frame You made my future look bright and I believed every word I went to sleep on the cloud and woke up in the dirt And now I'm without shelter and the wind is blowing You said you would be there for me boy when the tough got going Said if weapons formed you've stand in front of me When ever I felt trapped you said that you Would be the one to set me free Thought you were my hero but as it turned out you were no show Tell me where you at (where you at) You said you would be there for me Where you at [x3] And I can't see, see, see, see You said you'd be right there for me So I'm waiting on ya right here until you appear and Deliver [x3] deliver boy deliver [x3]
