TOM WAITS lyrics

Underground

Original and similar lyrics
Rattle big black bones in the danger zone there's a rumblin' groan down below there's a big dark town it's a place I've found there's a world going on Underground they're alive, they're awake while the rest of the world is asleep below the mine shaft roads it will all unfold there's a world going on Underground all the roots hang down swing from town to town they are marching around down under your boots all the trucks unload beyond the gopher holes there's a world going on Underground

Beethoven

ALPHAVILLE "Prostitute"
there's a tremor in the city but it looks all quiet there is something awful brewing but there ain't riots beethoven you can read between the lines that there must be more you're alarmed but you don't know what you're waiting for beethoven beethoven, the boots are back in town when ignorance and fear are closing mouths and ears the skins are on their way when it gets dark in europe it's just a state of mind, the blind leading the blind beethoven there's a scrawling on a tombstone judenschweine raus once again the racial fury is burning down the house beethoven there's a bleeding yellow man lying in the streets but there isn't anybody doing anything beethoven, the boots are back in town when ignorance and fear are closing mouths and ears the skins are on their way when it gets dark in europe it's just a state of mind, the blind leading the blind and one grey day shall rise the flood no dikes will stem the heavy tides when cold pierced feathered bodies scream they fall as if the monstrous scythe of clouds had smashed them from the sky the scattered squadron of mankind stabs right into the churned up ether of long forgotten birdless flights beethoven, the boots are back in town the demons of the past will be replaced at last there are smarter ones to stay, how can you stay away from the order of disgrace, how can you close your eyes beethoven, the boots are back....

Invoke The Machine

AVANTASIA "The Mystery Of Time"
[Tobias Sammet:] Home to the land of the living Roused by a sound I confide And what am I to cast my tired eyes upon Where was I when the clock had been alive? [Ronnie Atkins:] I see marvel right in front of me There's a man, who's got tomorrow in his hands Don't you see what you are meant to be Outside your cloud-cuckoo-land [Tobias Sammet:] Time won't wait for those who stay behind To wait for time In this tangible realms hesitation's a crime [Chorus] In the Night: A secret mysterious dream Dead of night, while the town lies asleep We invoke the machine [Ronnie Atkins:] Those dreams that you Hummed to yourself once How far will you reach out To make them come true Will you turn around To shirk from duty Or force the pace While it's all up to you [Tobias Sammet:] A giant leap is to be made now I'm struck with awe We're gonna heed the inner call My heart beat quicken I behold the god-machine I can't help but write history As my glance wanders To the far off end in the sky Far off end end in the sky Hissing and screaming, almost alive In the night My life came apart at the seams Dead of the night, let's run up the wheel We invoke the machine In the Night A secret mysterious dream Dead of night, the town lies asleep, whoa We invoke the machine In the night Those in hiding are waiting for me Dead of night, let's run up the wheel We invoke the machine

Awake

ASIA "Aura"
(Adapted from 'The Rubaiyat' of Omar Khayyam) The dawning of a brand new day The waking of the whispers say: That sleeping heavens will return In deepest night the secret learned And from these walls this city lies The past will be our future The journey will be over, Awake! I saw the writing on the wall The story of our birth then fall Within their tombs of holy stone The scrolls of life, one man alone So if we try, we can live and learn The sands will pull you under Don't let them pull you under Awake! I travelled to a foreign land Through stormy seas and burning sand Led by the stars the ancient stream The call of treasures yet unseen So if we climb to the rocks of kings Together we'll discover The source of all our wonder Awake! Someday we're going to go back to the stars And find the answer, who we really are A traveller through the lonely mists of time Creation from the sky The dawning of a brand new day The waking of the whispers say: That sleeping heavens will return In deepest night the secret learned From these walls this city lies The past will be our future The journey will be over Awake! Someday we're going to go back to the stars And find the answer who we really are A traveller through the lonely mists of time Creation from the sky Someday we're going to back to the stars And find the answer who we really are If we try, we can live and learn Together we'll discover The source of all our wonder Awake! We saw the writing We read the story Awake!

Charlemagne's Home Town

JAMES MCMURTRY "Childish Things"
I've got it all to myself now Crack the window just a hair Dark and close, the way I like it Black tobacco chokes the air I keep to myself, I lack the language I measure out my life with coffee grounds The trees are the color of ashes In Charlemagne's home town I said I didn't fear the distance As if I'd ever been that tough I can hear your voice across the water But that's nowhere near enough Won't you fly across that ocean Take a train on down Because the night's growing lonesome In Charlemagne's home town The fortune teller told me nothing That I wouldn't have found out on my own She read my palm and she took my money She looked at me with eyes of stone She said the odds are long and stacked against us Still we try because we must To keep from leaving our senses Long forgotten in the dust Like the bones of some saint Beneath a church floor Who must have died for lack of light The color snapshots I sent you All came out in black and white There's a lonely child on a snow white pony On a carousel in the market place He sits on that horse and he looks right through me A shadow falls across his face What will I do when my glass is empty What will I do when it all comes down What will I do when it comes to nothing In Charlemagne's home town
