GREAT LAKE SWIMMERS lyrics - Great Lake Swimmers

Moving Pictures Silent Films

Original and similar lyrics
Oh wake me please when this is over Oh when the ice is melted away And the hunger returns I will feel the same but older And I'll be twice the man that I thought I was Where have you been? And what have you done? I've been under the ground Reading prayers from this old book I found Under the ground Saving it up And spending it all On moving pictures Silent films Moving pictures Silent films Oh is this the dream I've been saving? Oh where the heart beats slower and slower To almost nothing Almost nothing Almost nothing I took care for longer (?) At least something beautiful Out there in the spotlight But turned around softly Turned around squinting It's all they heard was headlights (?) And then the truth The truth was unbearable Oh and iminent Bearing down on these two shadowed animals Called painting a dotted line Called painting a dotted line Where have you been? And what have you done? I've been under the ground Reading prayers from this old book I found Under the ground Saving it up And spending it all On moving pictures Silent films Moving pictures Silent films

Intro Portal To Your Phobias

Benediction
I looked within myself and I turned Many laddered mental maze burnt Forever is the time that I walked along Sufferance in silence is my syndrome Take my path - Never last In ruthless pain - I'll always reign Silent sound - Stalking ground Cemetery run - I bow to none Dominating pray is my will A homicidal urgeance to kill Slash and stab the bitches of witchery Deafening the screams of their agony Take my path - Never last In ruthless pain - I'll always reign Silent sound - Stalking ground Cemetery run - I bow to none In my theatre of madness Lone player on the stage Woebegotten my audience Momentary respite is taken from my rage Shuddering in ecstasy At the brutal crimes I've done Your so blind you perfect fool I bow to none Open wounds in arrogant bliss Skillfully remove Innards in a vulgar heap And finally the womb Touch the flesh, desecrate the skin Wading in the gore Like a vulture I feed upon This sacrificial whore Their living bodies leave me so vexed Copulation joyous dead sex Morbid absorbtion in fantasy My auspicious orgasm parody Took my path - Did not last In ruthless pain - I always reigned Silent sound - Stalking ground Cemetery run - I bow to none

I Bow To None

Benediction
I looked within myself and I turned Many laddered mental maze burnt Forever is the time that I walked along Sufferance in silence is my syndrome Take my path - Never last In ruthless pain - I'll always reign Silent sound - Stalking ground Cemetery run - I bow to none Dominating pray is my will A homicidal urgeance to kill Slash and stab the bitches of witchery Deafening the screams of their agony Take my path - Never last In ruthless pain - I'll always reign Silent sound - Stalking ground Cemetery run - I bow to none In my theatre of madness Lone player on the stage Woebegotten my audience Momentary respite is taken from my rage Shuddering in ecstasy At the brutal crimes I've done Your so blind you perfect fool I bow to none Open wounds in arrogant bliss Skillfully remove Innards in a vulgar heap And finally the womb Touch the flesh, desecrate the skin Wading in the gore Like a vulture I feed upon This sacrificial whore Their living bodies leave me so vexed Copulation joyous dead sex Morbid absorbtion in fantasy My auspicious orgasm parody Took my path - Did not last In ruthless pain - I always reigned Silent sound - Stalking ground Cemetery run - I bow to none

Enough To Be On Your Way

JAMES TAYLOR "Hourglass"
So the sun shines on his funeral just the same as on a birth, the way it shines on everything that happens here on Earth. It rolls across the western sky and back into the sea and spends the day's last rays upon this fucked-up family, so long old pal. The last time I saw Alice, she was leaving Santa Fe with a bunch of round-eyed Buddhists in a killer Chevrolet. Said they turned her out of Texas, yeah, she burned them down back home, now she's wild with expectation on the edge of the unknown. Singing oh, it's enough to be on your way, it's enough just to cover ground, it's enough to be moving on. Home, build it behind your eyes, carry it in your heart, safe among your own. They brought her back on a Friday night, same day I was born. We sent her up the smokestack, yes, and back into the storm. She blew up over the San Juan Mountains, she spent herself at last. The threat of heavy weather, that was what she knew best. Oh, it's enough to be on your way, it's enough to cover ground, it's enough to be moving on. Home, build it behind your eyes, carry it in your heart, safe among your own. It woke me up on a Sunday, an hour before the sun. It had me watching the headlights out on highway 591. Till I stepped into my trousers, till I pulled my big boots on, I walked out on the Mesa and I stumbled on this song Oh, it's enough to be on your way, it's enough just to cover ground, it's enough to be moving on. Home, build it behind your eyes, carry it in your heart, safe among your own. So long, old gal.
