Burning Sky

Original and similar lyrics
How are things in your little world? I hope they're going well, and you are too Do you still see the same old crowd? The ones who used to meet every Friday I'm really sorry that I can't be there But work comes first, I'm sure you'll understand Things are really taking off for me Business is thriving, and I'm showing a profit And in any case it wouldn't be the same 'Cause we've all grown up, and we've got our lives And the values that we had once upon a time Seem stupid now, 'cause the rent must be paid And some bonds severed, and others made Now I don't want you to get me wrong Ideals are fine when you are young And I must admit we had a laugh But that's all it was and ever will be 'Cause the burning sky keeps burning bright And as long as it does (and it always will) There's no time for dreams when commerce calls And the taxman's shouting, 'cause he wants his dough And the wheels of finance won't begin to slow And it's only us realists who are gonna come through 'Cause there's only one power higher than that of truth And that's the burning sky Oh and by the way I must tell you Before I sign off, that I've got a meeting next week With the head of a big corporate I can't disclose who, but I'm sure you'll know it And the burning sky keeps burning bright And it won't turn off till it's had enough It's the greedy bastard who won't give up And you're just a dreamer if you don't realize And the sooner you do will be the better for you Then we'll all be happy, and we'll all be wise And all bow down to the burning sky Then we'll all be happy, and we'll all be wise And together we will live beneath the burning sky

Hurting And Shoving (She Should Have Let Me Sleep)

Glassjaw "Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Silence"
When I get back Pre-break of dawn hear the ring it's me live from a pay phone talking in the rain. Things pan out exactly as i say they will. Will I be less happy when I get back? Two hand in one glove as if we were poor. The hard up make the soup from stones like the poor before them did before. You say the waiting could crush your heart. But it's nothing new to me have you crave me so desperately but I know how when you need me you bleed for me, though now I'm gone you fill my shoes with new fans. Always and forever we are apart and may she see she'd be free rejoicing in distance if she only let me sleep. Will things make less happy when I get back? Absence makes the heart grow still. Abuse the hunt; confuse the kill. I know, I know. Make the dead feel deader deader. Make the dead sleep nights with a razor waiting. Kill the prey. I'll hold my child's head underwater. If it's a boy, I was joking if it's a daughter, I'll say I did what I did because I had to... And if you find my kid later tell her I laughed too. We just might work out fine because I love you enough to let you give the pain that I want ...And when you do I just might fuck you enough to love you. Once upon my night stand lied letters piled in columns postmarked Middle Island out east in the country of Solemn.

Always Will

WYNONNA JUDD "The Other Side"
If time is a train rollin' down the track Every minute is a box car that don't come back Take a look around you, it's all gonna change Whatever you see ain't never gonna stay the same Except for the rain and the wind in the trees And the way I feel about you and me [Chorus] And the way I feel when I'm with you Is like the roll of the ocean And the calm and quiet of the moon And when you hold me time stands still It always has and you know it always will Out on the horizon the sun is goin' down It ain't gone, it's just on its way around Just like your love I see it every day In the things you do and the things you say You touch my hand and I feel the thrill I always have and I always will [Repeat Chorus Twice] You know it always will You know it always will

Easter

DREAM THEATER "Cover Songs"
[With Steve Hogarth on vocals and Steve Rothery on guitar, ] [both from Marillion. ] - ( Uncovered show at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, London - 1/31/95) - Steve Hogarth and John Helmer (Marillion - from the album Season's End ) A ghost of a mist was on the field The grey and the Green together The noise of a distant farm machine Out of the first light came A tattered necklace of hedge and trees On the southern side of the hill Betrays where the border runs between Where Mary Dunoon's boy fell Easter here again A time for the Blind to see Easter Surely now can all of your hearts be free Out of the port of Liverpool Bound for the North of Ireland The wash of the spray and horsetail waves The roll of the sea below And Easter here again A time for the Blind to see Easter Surely now can all of your hearts be free What will you do? Make a stone of your Heart? Will you set things right When you tear them apart? Will you sleep at night With the Plough and the Stars alight? What will you do? With the wire and the gun? That'll set things right When it's said and done? Will you sleep at night? Is there so much love to hide?
