JOSEPH ARTHUR lyrics - And The Thieves Are Gone

Anywhere With You

Original and similar lyrics
(Check) Belief is just a resident Of things you heard when the pain was clear You've been traveling in so far Only to find out your still nowhere near You're the creator of the gods And the whores of the Babylon Most just want your money But one or two will kill you for a song Singing to the drifter Singing to the banker and the maid Singing to the sling shots Singing to the diamond and theĀ ??? And the Thieves are gone And the thieves are gone And the thieves are gone I'm ready to go anywhere Anywhere with you And we sing this song over over With you my love Shouting at the fire engines Rolling down Jefferson at dawn Everyone corrupted And looking like there's nowhere to belong I see your eye's are spinning Swallowing the world the way it blooms The walls began to dance And your thoughts began appearing in balloons So when the strangers sugar coat servants at the seam As the beggars bleeding butchers betting back the bread the bank round you to bring And trucks with number flames roll undisturbed thru greenhill, so will I Your trying to nurse the sprit, but it's enough for most just to survive And their eye's are gone I'm ready to go anywhere Anywhere with you And we sing this song over over With you my love Someone needs an operator Someone else is broken on the road The one by loves it's self too much That never got around to explode Games and animators say We'll be forgiven and do time But there has always been an alligator Biting off the heads of those who shine Nothing here is real And nothing here holds any true weight Heading out of Troutville Bleeding hands reaching for the bank Pull me from the stream And I will fight like danger in the air And as you are driving by the accident Each review will start to stare I'm sending you a postcard I'm ready to go anywhere Anywhere with you As we sing this song over over With you my love I'm sending you a post card But I am nowhere And you are nowhere too Well I don't have a stamp So I'll just burn it if it's all the same to you It held no information Cause every word that's spoken is a lie For you were never born So there is no way you will ever die What's the use of feeling for someone That you made up in your mind You dream that you are lost And you imagine that there is a you to find But there just ain't nobody No savior, no heaven and no hell Just a load of broken junk You're looking for an idiot to sell Your life it doesn't work But you've resigned yourself to live it till the end The way you look so kind But no one seems to notice so you just pretend Then you get depressed I'm ready to go anywhere Any where with you As we sing this song over over With you my love Then you get depressed [?] So you find yourself a doctor and a pill To make the line more comfortable And make-believe your following your will

Killing Time

Clark Anne
Stumbling words and stuttering lips Make the sentence complete A death sentence complete Create hell our of hopelessness Confirm the failure of it all Falling and calling Falling and crawling A Stick in the ground scratches your name A scream in the darkness is searching Again and again Watching eyes wait for sadeness to rise True superstitions combine and thicken This poison that reaches my Soul This terror that blackens my Soul I must smile at your strategy And laugh at your plan And the execution of it all Like death itself love is rotting inside of me But there'll be no protection for you - you cannot hide me I am cold on a bed of ice But like seasons I know it will pass It will always return again though A Summer of love is a momentary and transient thing Winter will always return again.

If You Really Knew

Out Of Eden
What you don't know can lead you to the extremes Shunning help though you feel a need You fear to be caught limping and you lose your place And 'Leaning On The Everlasting Arms' is not your taste Maybe you've heard those stories, Laughed at what you saw on TV Or felt disgust as He was used as an excuse for bigotry But I've got to tell you, that's not what it's all about 'Cause the truth I know will turn you around Chorus If you really knew You would change your mind If you knew the God I know You would have the time If you take a chance, I know you will find Everything you need in love of another kind I, too, have been hurt by those who claimed to show the way It was crazy, their two faces like night and day But you don't stop believing 'cause you once been burned In everything, there's a lesson learned Man is imperfect, there is just One Perfect Soul So much more loving than than one that you've been shown, oh How long is it gonna take for you to realize? I wish that you would open your eyes Repeat Chorus Bridge I apologize to you, On behalf of the untrue Because the God I know would never do the things they do Mercy and compassion on the right and on the left Can you give anymore than your last breath? Oh, too hard to see, well put your mind aside And stop using fear to hide behind Chorus X2 Bridge 2 God's love is enough for you And it's waiting, if you only knew (Repeat) Bridge 2 till fade
