JOSEPH ARTHUR lyrics - The Ballad Of Boogie Christ: Act 1

Famous Friends Along The Coast

Original and similar lyrics
You never knew your way back home You lost yourself and begin to drown Inside a cage With photographs and lights of glass And memories of when your style Was all the rage Working in the diamond mines The things you lost Down the line Come creeping back And when you try to get some sleep The spirit world has prepared Its attack You look in the mirror and see the eyes No one can keep you realize You are a ghost With famous friends along the coast You dissolve but somehow still Propose a toast To victory To wings that fly Through misery Swallowing your alibi To learning how not to try To figure out Who you'll be In the night Get yourself away from here It’s over now Get yourself away from here It’s over now Now you've been here once before You let the leper through the door And fell apart He gave to you self respect You were huge and then just a speck Of his heart Well, the darkness knew it's OK to be like that You got away And bought the shirt You disappeared into make believe So no one knew just how much You really hurt Now they want you to mop the floor To clean the blood that keeps on pouring From your head But everything just fades to black There ain't no map and everyone you meet is dead The crucifix, the hand grenade Only you know which one is gonna save you The dancin' bones and the faded bomb Somehow you must know you're gone And disappear Get yourself away from here It’s over now Get yourself away from here It’s over now Get yourself away from here It’s over now Get yourself away from here It’s over now Get yourself away from here It’s over now Get yourself away from here It’s over now Get yourself away from here

Ravens

All About Eve "Touched by Jesus"
Late last night, about a quarter to twelve In the middle of an awful storm I took fright at the terrible sight Of a raven flying into my room My blood ran cold, my heart stood still As I pulled the covers over my head A minute dragged by as I opened my eyes up To find her at the end of my bed Then she spoke in a devilish croak About herself being one of a score And I felt sick at the very idea Of dealing with nineteen more She said, look out your window I see a skyfull, I pull a rifle on them all. Pink sunrise in the wintry skies All warm on the wings of a dove She sinks and lands on the back of my hand And sings with the voice of love... Thoughts made flesh can be beautiful things As I am one of the same, Fed so well on the best of your dreams And the beauty found within But those black beasts that you see in the east Are scratching on the orchard floor At split, sweet fruits and the writhing worms That you keep behind the straining door Go to the cellar! I see the beasts and they're eating Feasting on it . Fill my head with small white flowers Help the sweetness heal the sour Draw on high religious power Free the ravens from the tower.

Cage The Songbird

ELTON JOHN "Blue Moves"
Sober in the morning light Things look so much different To how they looked last night A pale face pressed to an unmade bed Like flags of many nations flying high above her head The cellophane still on the flowers The telegram still in her hand As whispers circulate all day Their back-stage baby princess passed away And you can cage the songbird But you can't make her sing And you can trap the free bird But you'll have to clip her wings 'Cause she'll soar like a hawk when she flies But she'll dive like an eagle when she dies Promises of no more lies Fell flat upon an empty stage Before the audience arrived A return in time to the cheaper seats She never knew what lay beneath Just a dated handbill they found between the sheets Let down before the final curtain A shallow heart that left her cold She left in rouge upon the mirror A circled kiss to the faithful who'd miss her

Obscured

SMASHING PUMPKINS "Pisces Iscariot"
lost your head now you sleep on the floor what you said i don't want anymore through the haze make your eyes up to ache out in space days away through these eyes i rely on all i've seen obscured through these eyes looks like i'm home tonight left for dead as you sweep out the door things we said we don't mean anymore tear inside her like a fallen kite through these eyes i deny on all i see obscured through these eyes looks like i'm home tonight what you said made a mess of me what you said i don't want obscured

An Attempt To Tip The Scales

BRIGHT EYES
Did you expect it all to stop At the wave of your hand? Like the sun's just gonna drop If it's night you demand Well, in the dark we are just air So the house might dissolve But once we're gone, who's gonna care If we were ever here at all? Well, summer's gonna come It's gonna cloud our eyes again No need to focus When there's nothing that's worth seeing So we trade liquor for blood In an attempt to tip the scales I think you lost what you loved In that mess of details They seemed so important at the time But now you can't even recall Any of the names, faces, or lines It's more the feeling of it all Well, winter's gonna end I'm gonna clean these veins again So close to dying that I finally can start living

Die Laughing

THERAPY? "Troublegum"
Gimme something to breathe Give me a reason to live Close your eyes and see What you have inside I think I've gone insane I can't remember my own name I think I've gone insane And your friends just tell you lies Then you realize you gonna die anyway I think I've gone insane I can't remember my own name I think I've gone insane I can't remember my own name I think I've gone insane I can't remember my own name I think I've gone insane Lost in a world with no reality I'm frightened to move I'm frightened to speak And I would kill for a good nights sleep I'm feeling I'm feeling dead I think I've gone insane I can't remember my own name I think I've gone insane I can't remember my own name I think I've gone insane I can't remember my own name I think I've gone insane
