Mission Sunset

Original and similar lyrics
I looked through your frame and watched death go by. I move towards her gaze to catch it by surprise. It's something new to try somewhere in the tides. When we catch our stride, then you can decide. Throw me your halo down the halls of doom. I'll lead the way through the combs of time. Show me your heaven down the halls of doom. I'll lead the way down the combs of time. Find our way. [Repeated] Now you know the way Now you know the way Now you know you're tied. I expect you to decide. Now you know you're tied. You can never turn away. Now you know you're tied. You can never turn around. You can never turn away. Now you know you're tied. I expect you to decide that you'll never turn away. It's like heaven in true time, like heaven. Now you know you're tied. You will never turn away. It's your it's your time. Scanning the horizon, trying to find our bed. Gliding on the ice, covered to our heads. Stranded under ice, trying to hold our breath. Scanning the horizon, covered to our heads. I watch the dead go by. I watch the dead get far. I watch the dead go by. I watch the dead get far, get far. Racing against the throes of time. Try to pretend you know your prize. Covered in smiles, the lights shine thick ahead. Hovering in the throes of time. Hard to resist, we know it's our time. Rest your eyes. Just rest your eyes.

How To Be A Carpenter

AESOP ROCK "Float"
So you want to be a carpenter, do you? Well it takes more than a hammer, boy, you're gonna need blueprints and a will to build, and... Straighten your cap! you look like you've been through a war. Wipe that grin off your mug, you got a sturdy frame? Sluggish posture just won't cut it. You're gonna need schooling, and, and, and take notes! And god if I catch you yawning again you're gonna regret ever asking for my help, And dammit you gotta hustle, this is a slacker-free zone And, where's my pencil? go get your hard-hat, here's a nickel, go get us a ruler and a saw and a drill and lots of graph paper... [Verse 1] Yo I used to have a rope ladder but tattered were the rungs, I strung it from the highest willow, trying to hug the sun. The seventh level buckled and I tumbled from the summit, Now I'm back to re-climb and this time light my cigarette from it. My stitchin division to vision warfares numb enough to soak suddenly in a bullet bath and skip stones in the morning as I, Lie in color phantom tantrum explicable, sit and pull the petals off wild flower patches, Magic happens! Behold, pity the lowlife parish. Doom City barracks left remorse coursed on a horse-drawn carriage by the torch of Polaris To the Badlands, where every bridge collapse right where the crowd stands, Where the witches are fireproof and every preacher's a madman. Frigid be the appleseed demeanor towards the bay where the landshark Parliament swims When they pause to polish they fins. The better brains will preach the village through the city square to the light, heavy and middle-weight integrate, Slept with sticks and stones in my pillowcase. Ooh my bomb's light simulator picks barnacles off the tugboat belly Left my spirit home in a shoebox in case I die. Got a rugged smoke-green halo floatin' inches off the swamp, Had that phase when the devil tree contacts a sparkle in my eye. Now step back from the reservoir and let the settlers drink, Salvage all priorities and iron out all kinks. My house ain't made of bricks and straw but never has it crumbled, Cuz I stitched the brain's rigidity with symmetry, Come visit me, It's fascinating. Now here's how its done, I'm only gonna show you once, So pay close attention, hear me now or hear me never, Glue your little eyes to the diagram, See the plywood, the nails, the glue? You work every inch, Your domain and you must treat it well. Keep it clean or it'll swallow you whole. Where's the T-square, hand me the pliers, now dammit, oh this will never do! You have to want the castle, Head Up, shoulders back! Be the materials, know your limits only to break your limits. Are you listening? God dammit boy, pay attention! Try it again. Little bit more juice this time. Try it again. Yeah a little bit more elbow grease this time. Try it again. Concentrate, a little more focus this time. You can kick and scream and yell but damn I'm only tryin' to help. Try it again. You're not doing it right, here now, yall watch. Try it again. Stop sulking, I'm the example, for real, Watch. Try it again. I'm bout to make it easy for you yall, just Watch. You can kick and scream and yell but damn I'm only tryin' to help. [Verse 2] [?] stinging the hunt The hunt dispatched a pack of wild dog silhouettes, All sulking by the skyline, focused with a bonus hunger pain, My sincere addiction imbalance stems from a vintage grimace slap to the mug of Ancestral branch camped on the vessels. Yes and I abide, the laws of the hidden desert survived, And every peasant presenteed it on the crescent less deprived. With the exception of pleasant finale binges on the great endangered interests of phantom brigades slaving to save that princess. I double the negative, to no avail, no promised benefits, just delegates peddling pairs of negatives, With magnified magnanimous appearance sandy sinners in opinion shut. Now what of the madness fragments? Stagnant. I oughta make a vision sing my twix cling to your pigeon wings, Vision militia indent benders, we've flooded Hell's kitchen sink, Walkin' eye civility simpleton citizen mixers to kiss the sky in unison Sinister city-blistered corporate rule-igans. All I really want's a nickel to feed my little pigs. [?] Big Dick three cheers to the product. Consumer populace feed but never dreamed of the process When a slanted advantage point sort of makeshift criminals date rape the hostage, Dream away the blame pain, yeah but it seeps through the cracks, And drips from the ceiling and smells the rich scent of my tracks. All I ever really wanted was a jungle, and a jungle I got, See it ain't the vision it's the plot that makes me stop. Try it again. I don't want to. Try it one more time. I'm not even interested anymore.

Sports Bar

LOCAL H "Ham Fisted"
Fucked up - drunk and stoned Every choice has a no Speech slurred - I called you again You're not even my friend I did it again Choked up - I gotta go every choice has a no I'm broke - I don't belong They're raping my favorite song And every time I wake up I feel sad I dream about the things I used to have And how did I get into this? - I'm tied to it Teased up - high hair disgust No sex - a natural distrust I don't care - you can't get through I dig hating you I did it again Drink it up - pissed off I'm a hack, you're a smoker's cough I'd like to fuck, but you're too dumb Gee, it's great being single and young And every time I try to talk to you I know there's something else you'd rather do And how did I get into this? - I'm tied to it And every time I wake up bruised I know that my brain's not in use And every time when things are great I don't know why I detonate I'm tied to it I did it again And every time I wake up bruised I know that my brain's not in use And every time when things are great I don't know why I detonate I'm tied to it

Tounge Tied

Jesus Jones "Perverse"
I'm trapped in words Held hostage by my friends Tripped up by meaning Taking a road just to get to it's end Tounge tied It's killing me I want to see things for the first time Show you things that are brighter, darker, sharper, softer But I'm struck dumb and dead Thoughts like paper over fire There's a hole in my world That makes me talk like a liar Over there I see a fist fight A woman in a care full of toys smokes a cigarette Conversations twist and turn I get the feeling I am learning more than ever before This is the first time Tounge tied It's killing me

Line 'Em Up

JAMES TAYLOR "Hourglass"
I remember Richard Nixon back in '74 and the final scene at the White House door and the staff lined up to say good-bye, tiny tear in his shifty little eye, he said, 'nobody knows me, nobody understands. These little people were good to me, oh I'm gonna shake some hands.' Somebody line 'em up, line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. Somebody line 'em up, line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. At that time my heart was all broke, I looked like ashes and smelled like smoke and I turned away from my loving kind, try to leave my body and live in my mind but it's much too much emotion to hold it in your hand. They've got waves out on the ocean, they're gonna wear away the land, Somebody line 'em up, line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. Want you to line 'em up, line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. Oh, I've seen corn in Kansas and I've seen picket fences and certain cowboy dances. I've gone lining up for shows, I've been safely placed in rows, sure I know how it goes. Another day goes by, little time machine, I'm raking my brain over what it might mean just to claim the time and to turn away, to make today today. Who waits for you, lonely tired old toad? It's your life laid out before you like the broken white line down the center of the road. Line 'em up line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. Line 'em up, line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. Yeah, big moon landing, people are standing up, smiles for the loved ones, they go walking on down the aisles. Each re-engages stepping into the sun, I watch them turn like pages one by one by one, Want you to line 'em up, line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. Line 'em up, line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. [Indecipherable French grunting]

Dance Of Death

IRON MAIDEN "Dance Of Death"
(Gers/Harris) Let me tell you a story to chill the bones About a thing that I saw One night wandering in the everglades I'd one drink but no more I was rambling, enjoying the bright moonlight Gazing up at the stars Not aware of a presence so near to me Watching my every move Feeling scared and I fell to my knees As something rushed me from the trees Took me to an unholy place And that is where I fell from grace Then they summoned me over to join in with them To the dance of the dead Into the circle of fire I followed them Into the middle I was led As if time had stopped still I was numb with fear But still I wanted to go And the blaze of the fire did no hurt upon me As I walked onto the coals And I felt I was in a trance And my spirit was lifted from me And if only someone had the chance To witness what happened to me And I danced and I pranced and I sang with them All had death in their eyes Lifeless figures they were undead all of them They had ascended from hell As I danced with the dead My free spirit was laughing and howling down at me Below my undead body Just danced the circle of dead Until the time came to reunite us both My spirit came back down to me I didn't know if I was alive or dead As the others all joined in with me By luck then a skirmish started And took the attention away from me When they took their gaze from me Was the moment that I fled I ran like hell faster than the wind But behind I did not glance One thing that I did not dare Was to look just straight ahead When you know that your time has come around You know you'll be prepared for it Say your last goodbyes to everyone Drink and say a prayer for it When you're lying in your sleep, when you're lying in your bed And you wake from your dreams to go dancing with the dead When you're lying in your sleep, when you're lying in your bed And you wake from your dreams to go dancing with the dead To this day I guess I'll never know Just why they let me go But I'll never go dancing no more 'Til I dance with the dead
