ELTON JOHN lyrics - Madman Across The Water

Indian Sunset

Original and similar lyrics
As I awoke this evening with the smell of wood smoke clinging Like a gentle cobweb hanging upon a painted teepee Oh I went to see my chieftain with my warlance and my woman For he told us that the yellow moon would very soon be leaving This I can't believe I said, I can't believe our warlord's dead Oh he would not leave the chosen ones to the buzzards and the soldiers guns Oh great father of the Iroquois ever since I was young I've read the writing of the smoke and breast fed on the sound of drums I've learned to hurl the tomahawk and ride a painted pony wild To run the gauntlet of the Sioux, to make a chieftain's daughter mine And now you ask that I should watch The red man's race be slowly crushed What kind of words are these to hear From Yellow Dog whom white man fears I take only what is mine Lord, my pony, my squaw, and my child I can't stay to see you die along with my tribe's pride I go to search for the yellow moon and the fathers of our sons Where the red sun sinks in the hills of gold and the healing waters run Trampling down the prairie rose leaving hoof tracks in the sand Those who wish to follow me I welcome with my hands I heard from passing renegades Geronimo was dead He'd been laying down his weapons when they filled him full of lead Now there seems no reason why I should carry on In this land that once was my land I can't find a home It's lonely and it's quiet and the horse soldiers are coming And I think it's time I strung my bow and ceased my senseless running For soon I'll find the yellow moon along with my loved ones Where the buffaloes graze in clover fields without the sound of guns And the red sun sinks at last into the hills of gold And peace to this young warrior comes with a bullet hole

Cycles To Gehenna

AESOP ROCK "Skelethon"
Baseheads locally approach all spark plugs Total disregard for a dying man's shark jump Post-meridian pretty tungsten attracts any once-pale horse painted gunmetal black Face masking, hard-shelled ebony propeller hat Clubmans, gloved rakes grappling the clutch span Tuck go the steel toe, metal gate spreading For the dead-alive that rented parking space 37 2000 out the weekly under "Cycles to Gehenna" gets him floating over 20 buses Fireproof and festive Corners like a two-tired tiger so a too-tired rider can accumulate a few excited fibers to assign Knows no zen in the art of maintenance Only as the orchestrated patron saint of changing lanes baby Here is how a great escape goes when you can't take your dead friends names out your phone Eyes and teeth, new moon on a scale that defies belief Outside what our fundamental sciences teach, every other mighty lion asleep Gangway - mine eyes, mine teeth [x3] The man-ape translates glam thru the visor Goes in water lilies Am-scrays Giger, and man-ray Crammed in a one-player campaign Blinker like a hallowed bonfire over Samhain Span where the praying hands mandate Bars an extension of the arms They're mutating instead of being farmed Tonight beneath a marmalade Venus Haunted mowers chewing every glowing yard of mud between us Going Ford, Jag, Datsun, Corvette, Lotus All cones you can slalom when your Zorlac's focused Via mechanical Dartmoor Frankensteined poorly And sanctioned by a New Yank Yorkee Who knew that any moment he could lose it to the decoupaged suicide flooring And still he keep his fuel tank portly, the 30 odd year old gears thank charlie The scarf thank Mom's new hobby, kssssht! copy Eyes and teeth, new moon on a scale that defies belief Outside what our fundamental sciences teach, every other mighty lion asleep Gangway - mine eyes, mine teeth [x3] It was less an act of hubris More a lonely hearts club at the helm of a magic bullet Away on a relentless bid for rarefied inertia Rattletrap forks married to the patchy terra firma Ursa Minor getting warmer I crowbar into the pecking order The dreck between the whores and Betty Ford-ers Hug a double yellow spine Knobby rubber like a rat on a rope Those little fuckers run on passion alone This is the product of a D.I.Y. inadequate home Grabbing a cabin in the-fuck-outta-dodge Actin' a savage in the shadows of Rome Traffic amassed against insufferable odds Fashioning gallows out of plastic and bone I got the motordrome walls of death splintering under me All-city galvanized bikes white knuckling Bright light, tunnel kings tuck in the devil P.S. I wrote this on a self destructing memo

Little Boy Soldiers

THE JAM "Setting Sons"
Its funny how you never knew what my name was, Our only contact was a form for the election. These days I find that you don't listen, These days I find that we're out of touch, These days I find that I'm too busy, So why the attention now you want my assistance - What have you done for me. You've gone and got yourself in trouble, No you want me to help you out. These days I find that I can't be bothered, These days I find that its all too much, To pick up a gun and shoot a stranger, But I've got no choice so here I come - war games. I'm up on the hills, playing little boy soldiers, Reconnaissance duty up at 5:30. Shoot shoot shoot and kill the natives, You're one of us and we love you for that. Think of honour, Queen and country, You're a blessed son of the British Empire, God's on our side and so is Washington. Come out on the hills with the little boy soldiers. Come on outside - I'll sing you a lullaby, Or tell a tale of how goodness prevailed. We ruled the world - we killed and robbed, The fucking lot - but we don't feel bad. It was done beneath the flag of democracy, You'll believe and I do - yes I do - yes I do - yes I do - These days I find that I can't be bothered, To argue withthem well what's the point, Better to take your shots and drop down dead, then they send you home in a pine overcoat With a letter to your mum Saying find enclosed one son - one medal and a note - to say he won.

It was done beneathe the flag of democracy, You'll believe - and I do, yes I do - yes I do - Yes I do - These days I find that I can't be bothered, To argue with them - well, what's the point? Better to take your shots and drop down dead, then they send you home in a pine overcoat. With a letter to your mum Saying 'find enclosed one son, one medal' - and a note to say he won.

Moon Was Yellow

FRANK SINATRA "Sinatra 80th-All The Best"
The moon was yellow, and the night was young. A smile brought us together, and I was wond'ring whether We'd meet again someday. The moon was yellow, and a song was sung. That vocal inspiration gave me the inclination To give my heart away. Here we are! Is our romance to continue? Will it be my luck to win you. May I look that far? Ah! My love is Ah, my love is yellow and the night is young.
