1983...(A Merman I Should Turn To Be)

Hurrah, I awake from yesterday
Alive, but the war is here to stay
So my love, Catherina and me,
decide to take our last walk through the noise to the sea
Not to die but to reborn,
away from lands so battered and torn
Forever, forever
Oh say, can you see itís really such a mess
Every inch of Earth is a fighting nest
Giant pencil and lipstick tube shaped things,
Continue to rain and cause screaming pain
And the arctic stains from silver blue to bloody red
as our feet find the sand,
and the sea is straight ahead, straight up ahead
Well itís too bad that our friends, canít be with us today
Well itís too bad
ĎThe machine, that we built,
would never save usí, thatís what they say
(Thatís why they ainít coming with us today)
And they also said ďitís impossible for a man to live and breathe under
water, foreverĒ,
was their main complaint
And they also threw this in my face, they said:
ďAnyway, you know good and well it would be beyond the will of God,
and the grace of the KingĒ (grace of the King)
(Yeah, yeah)
So my darling and I make love in the sand,
to salute the last moment ever on dry land
Our machine, it has done its work, played its part well
Without a scratch on our bodies and we bid it farewell
Starfish and giant foams greet us with a smile
Before our heads go under we take a last look at the killing noise
Of the out of style, the out of style, out of style(oooh)...

51st Anniversary

For fifty years theyíve been married
They canít wait for their fifty first 
To roll around, yeah, roll around.
For thirty years theyíve been married
And now theyíre old and happy
And they settle down, ha ha
Settle down, yeah.
For twenty years theyíve been married
And they did everything that could be done
You know, they have their fun.
And then you come along and talk about it:
ďSo you, you say you wanna be married, 
Iím gonna change your mind.
Oh, gotta change it.Ē
That was the good side baby
Here comes the best side.
For ten years theyíve been married
A thousand kids went around homeless
ĎCause their Mom was a louse
Daddyís down at the wiskey house.
That ainít all,
For three years theyíve been married
They donít get along so good,
Theyíre tired of each other.
You know how that goes, 
She got another lover.
Hah, same old thing.
So now youíre seventeen
You run around hanginí out
And having your fun
Life for you has just begun baby.
And then you come sayiní:
ďSo you, you say you wanna be married.
Oh, baby, tryiní to put me on a chain
Ainít that some shame?
You must be losiní your weak little mind.
I ainít ready to get married,
I ainít ready.
Iím gonna change your mind.
Ooh, look out baby.
Auh, I ainít ready to get tied down
I ainít ready, I ainít ready now
Let me live a little while longer
Let me live, let me live a little while longer
So I can finish talking,
Let me get back to my groooove . . .

All Along The Watchtower

"There must be some kind of way out of here,"
said the joker to the thief,
"There's too much confusion,
I can't get no relief.
Businessmen they drink my wine,
plowmen dig my earth
None of them along the line know what any of it is worth"
"No reason to get excited,"
the thief, he kindly spoke
"There are many here among us
who feel that life is but a joke
But you and I, we've been through that
and this is not our fate
So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late"
All along the watchtower
Princes kept the view
While all the women came and went
Barefoot servants, too
Outside in the cold distance
A wildcat did growl
Two riders were approaching
And the wind began to howl

Angel

Angel came down from heaven yesterday
She stayed with me just long enough to rescue me
And she told me a story yesterday,
about the sweet love between the moon and the deep blue sea
And then she spread her wings high over me
She said sheís gonna come back tomorrow 
And I said Ďfly on my sweet Angel,
fly on through the sky,
fly on my sweet Angel,
tomorrow Iím gonna be by your sideí
Sure enough this morning came unto me
Silver wings silhouetted against the childís sunrise
And my Angel she said unto me
Ďtoday is the day for you to rise,
take my hand,
youíre gonna be my man,
youíre gonna riseí
And then she took me high over younder (Lord)
And I said Ďfly on my sweet Angel,
fly on through the sky,
fly on my sweet Angel,
forever I will be by your sideí

Are You Experienced

If you can just get your mind together
uh-then come on across to me
We'll hold hands and then we'll
watch the sunrise
from the bottom of the sea
But first, are you experienced?
Uh-have you ever been experienced-uh?
Well, I have 
(Well) I know, I know, you'll probably scream and cry
that your little world won't let you go
But who in your measly little world, (-uh)
are you tryin' to prove to that you're
made out of gold and-uh, can't be sold
So-uh, are you experienced?
Have you ever been experienced? (-uh)
Well, I have
Uh, let me prove it to you,
yeah 
Trumpets and violins I can-uh, hear in the distance
I think they're callin' our name
Maybe now you can't hear them,
but you will, ha-ha, if you just
take hold of my hand
Ohhh, but are you experienced?
Have you ever been experienced? 
Not necessarily stoned, but
beautiful

Belly Button Window

Well, Iím up here in this womb
Iím looking all around (hmm, hmm, hmm)
Well, Iím looking out my Belly Button Window
And I see a whole lot of frowns
And Iím wondering if they donít want me around
What seems to be the fuss out there?
Just what seems to be the hang?
íCause you know if ya just donít want me this time around,
yeah Iíll be glad to go back to Spirit Land
And even take a longer rest, 
before Iím coming down the chute again
Man I sure remember the last time, baby,
they were still hawkiní about me then
So if you donít want me now,
make up your mind, where or when
If you donít want me now,
give or take, you only got two hundred days
íCause I ainít coming down this way too much more again
You know they got pills for ills and thrills and even spills,
but I think youíre just a little too late
So Iím coming down into this world, Daddy, 
regardless of love and hate
And Iím gonna sit up in your bed, Mama (huh),
and just a-grin right in your face
And then Iím gonna eat up all your choclates (huh),
and say ĎI hope Iím not too lateí
So if thereís any questions,
make up your mind
íCause you better give or take
questions in your mind
Give it a take,
you only got two hundred days
Way up into this womb,
looking all around
Sureís dark in here!
And Iím looking out my Belly Button Window
And I swear I see nothing but a lot of frowns
And Iím wondering if they want me around . . .

Bold As Love

Anger he smiles, towering in shiny metallic purple armour
Queen Jealousy, envy waits behind him
Her fiery green gown sneers at the grassy ground
Blue are the life-giving waters taken for granted,
they quietly understand
Once happy turquoise armies lay opposite ready,
but wonder why the fight is on
But theyíre all bold as love, yes, theyíre all bold as love
yeah, theyíre all bold as love
Just ask the Axis
My red is so confident that he flashes trophies of war and ribbons
of euphoria
Orange is young, full of daring,
but very unsteady for the first go round
My yellow in this case is not so mellow
In fact Iím trying tosay itís frightened like me
And all these emotions of mine keep holding me from, eh,
giving my life to a rainbow like you
Well Iím eh, yeah, Iím bold as love
Yeah, yeah
Well Iím bold, bold as love (hear me talking, girl)
Iím bold as love
Just ask the Axis (he knows everything)
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah

Burning Of The Midnight Lamp

The morning is dead and the day is too
Thereís nothing left here to lead me, but the velvet moon
All my loneliness I have felt today
Itís a little more than enough to make a man throw himself away
And I continue to burn the Midnight Lamp, alone
Now the smiling portrait of you
is still hanging on my frowning wall
It really doesnít, it really doesnít bother me too much at all
Itís just the eh ever falling dust that makes it so hard for me to see
That forgotten earring laying on the floor
Facing coldly towards the door
And I continue to burn the Midnight Lamp, all alone
Burn!
Yeah, yeah
Lonely, lonely, lonely
Loneliness is such a drag!
So here I sit to face that same old fireplace
Getting ready for the same old explosion
Going through my mind
And soon enough the time will tell
About the circus in the wishing well
And someone who will buy and sell for me
Someone who will toll my bell
And I continue to burn the same old lamp, alone
Yeah
Darling, can you hear me calling you?
So lonely
Gotto blow my mind
Yeah, yeah
Lonely, lonely . . .

Can You See Me

Can you see me, yeah, begging you on my knees?
Oh yeah, can you see me, baby?
Baby please donít leave, alright
If you can see me doing that
You can see in the future of a thousand years.

Castles Made Of Sand

Down the street you can hear her scream Ďyouíre a discraceí,
as she slams the door in his drunken face
And now he stands outside and all the neighbours start to gossip and drool
He cries Ďoh girl, you must be mad, what happened to the sweet
love you and me had?í
Against the door he leans and starts a scene, and his tears
fall and burn the garden green
And so castles made of sand fall in the sea, eventually
A little Indian brave,
who before he was ten played war games in the woods with his
Indian friends
And he built a dream that when he grew up he would be a
fearless warrior Indian Chief
Many moons passed and more the dream grew strong,
until tomorrow he would sing his first war song and fight his first battle
But something went wrong, surprise attack killed him in his sleep
that night
And so castles made of sand, melts into the sea, eventually
There was a young girl, whose heart was a frown
Ďcause she was crippled for life, and she couldnít speak a sound
And she wished and prayed she could stop living, so she decided to die
She drew her wheel chair to the edge of the shore,
and to her legs she smiled Ďyou wonít hurt me no moreí
But then a sight sheíd never seen made her jump and say,
ĎLook, a golden winged ship is passing my wayí
And it really didnít have to stop, it just kept on going
And so castles made of sand, slips into the sea, eventually

Come On

People talkin' but they just don't know,
What's in my heart, and why I love you so.
I love you baby like a miner loves gold. 
Come on sugar, let the good times roll.

So many people live in make believe,
They keep a lot a going up their sleeves.
But my love baby is no kind that folds.
Come On Baby, let the good times roll.
(Let the good times roll).

A love is nice if it's understood.
It's even nicer when you're feelin' good.

You just wanna bleed me,
So take out your dagger and cut me free, cut me free, cut me free,

You jump in front of my car when you, you know all the time that
ninety miles an hour, girl, is the speed I drive.
You tell me it's alright, you don't mind a little pain.
You say you just want me to take you for a ride. 
You're just like CROSSTOWN TRAFFIC, so hard to get through to you.
CROSSTOWN TRAFFIC, I don't need to run over you.

But a darlin', can't you see my signals turn from green to red
and with you I can see a traffic j am straight up ahead. 
You're just like CROSSTOWN TRAFFIC, so hard to get through to you.

He left home when he was seventeen.
The rest of the world he went on to see.
And everybody knows, boss,
A rolling stone gathers no moss.
Now youíd probably call him a tramp,
But it goes a little deeper than that
Heís a Highway Chile.
Yeah!
Now some people say
He had a girl that moaned.
Who messed around and did him pretty wrong.
They tell me it gotta hurt him bad.
Gotta made him feel pretty sad.
I couldnít say what went through his mind (not sure about the lirics!!!!)
Anyway, he left the world behind
And everybody knows the same old story
In another war you can loose your glory (not sure about the lirics!!!!)
Now you probably call him a tramp,
But I know it goes a little deeper than that
Heís a Highway Chile.
Walk on brother!
Yeah!
His old guitar slung across his back
His dusty boots is his Cadillac.
Flaminí hair just a-blowiní in the wind.
Ainít seen a bed in so long itís a sin.
Now you may call him a tramp,
But I know it goes a little deeper than that
Heís a Highway Chile.
Walk on brother!
Donít let no one stop you!
Highway Chile!
Yeah, yeah, yeah . . .
Highway Chile!
Rolliní stone!
Go on down the highway!
Highway Chile!
Yeah, yeah . . .

House Burning Down

Look at the sky turn a hell-fire red
Someoneís house is burning down down down down down down down . . .
Well, I asked my friend, ĎWhere is that black smoke coming from?í
He just coughed and changed the subject and said,
ĎOh well, I think it might snow some.í
So I left him sipping his tea,
And I jumped in my chariot and rode off to see 
Just why and who could it be this time.
Sisters and brothers, daddies, mothers standing round cryiní.
When I reached the scene the flames were making a gostly whine
So I stood on my horseís back
And I screamed without a crack
I said: ďOh baby why did you burn your brotherís house down?Ē
Look at the sky turn a hell-fire red, Lord
Someoneís house is burning down down down down
Look at the sky turn a hell-fire red, Lord
Someoneís house is burning down down down down down . . 
Well, someone stepped from the croud
He was nineteen miles high
He shouts, ďWeíre tired and disgusted,
So we paint red through the sky.Ē
I said, ďThe truth is straight ahead
So donít burn yourself instead
Try to learn instead of burn
Hear what I say.Ē
So I finally rode away
But Iíll never forget that day
íCause when I reached the valley
I looked down across the way
A giant boat from space landed with eerie grace
And came and taketh all the dead away.
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!
What do I say?
Look at the sky turn a hell-fire red, Lord
Someoneís house is burning down down down down
Look at the sky turn a hell-fire red, Lord
Someoneís house is burning down down down down
Look at the sky . . .

with a thousand smiles

It's alright, she says,

Take anything you want from me,

One Rainy Wish

Gold and rose, the color of the dream I had
Not too long ago.
Misty blue and lilac too,
Never to grow old.
There you were under the tree of song,
Sleeping so peacefully.
In your hand a flower played,
Waiting there for me.
I have never laid eyes on you,
Not before this timeless day.
But you woke and you smiled my name,
And you stole my heart away . . . stole my heart away.
Gold and rose, the color of the dream I had
Not too long ago.
Misty blue and lilac too,
Never to grow old.
Gold and rose, the color of the dream I had. 
Misty blue and lilac too.
Gold and rose, the color of the dream I had. 
Misty blue and lilac too.
Gold and rose, gold and rose, gold and rose . . .
Itís only a dream, but Iíd love to tell somebody about this dream.
The sky was filled with a thousand stars,
While the sun kissed the mountains blue.
And eleven moons played across the rainbows 
Above me and you.
Gold and rose, the color of the velvet walls that surrounds us.

The Wind Cries Mary

After all the jacks are in their boxes
and the clowns have all gone to bed
You can hear happiness staggering on down the street
footsteps dressed in red
And the wind whispers Mary 
A broom is drearily sweeping
up the broken pieces of yesterdays life
Somewhere a queen is weeping
Somewhere a king has no wife
And the wind, it cries Mary 
The traffic lights, they turn, uh, blue tomorrow
and shine their emptiness down on my bed
The tiny island sags down stream
'cause the life that lived is,
is dead
And the wind screams Mary 
Uh-will the wind ever remember
the names it has blow in the past?
And with this crutch, its old age, and its wisdom
it whispers no, this will be the last
And the wind cries Mary

the sun. Over.
You mean its the Earth? Over.
Positive. It is known to have some form of intelligent species. Over.
I think we should take a look.

Strange beautiful grass of green,
with your majestic silver seas
Your mysterious mountains I wish to see closer
May I land my kinky machine?

Your mysterious mountains I wish to see closer

And you'll

And once you take but all that
rubbish and hate and-
load it on my truck.
But donít make me work late-
I am your trashman-
And donít forget I also want
to live- not just survive-
I ainít your Black Slave- Just
because I just might try to
wash out your mind- Itís up to
your friend-
To get up off your rusty behind.
And please pass me the peace weed,
and take some heed-
Throw all that mixed up speed
away- All that dirt is gonna clog and
hurt- man you reach 100 years old in a day-

May I whisper in your ear...
Say something you ought to hear...
Lots of people so dear

Up From The Skies

I just want to talk to you
I wonít do you no harm
I just want to know about your different lives
on this here people farm
I heard some of you got your families
living in cages tall and cold
And some just stay there and dust away
past the age of old
Is this true?
Please let me talk to you
I just want to know about the rooms behind your minds
Do I see a vacuum there
Or am I going blind?
Or is it just the remains
from vibrations and echoes long ago
Things like ďLove the WorldĒ
and ďLet your fancy flowĒ
Is this true?
Please let me talk to you
Let me talk to you
I have lived here before 
the days of ice
And of course this is why 
Iím so concerned
And I come back to find
the stars misplaced 
And the smell of a world that has burned
The smell of a world that has burned
Yeah, well, maybe, maybe itís just a change of climate
Oh I can dig it, 
I can dig it baby
I just wanna see.
So where do I purchase my ticket?
Iíd just like to have a ringside seat
I wanna know about the new Mother Earth
I wanna hear and see everything
I wanna hear and see everything
I wanna hear and see everything . . .
Yeah!
Ah shucks,
If my daddy could see me now.

Voodoo Child
(Slight Return)

Well, I stand up next to a mountain
and I chop it down with the edge of my hand.
Well, I stand up next to a mountain,
chop it down with the edge of my hand.
Well, I pick up all the pieces and make an island,
might even raise just a little sand.
'Cause I'm a voodoo child,
Lord knows I'm a voodoo child, baby. 
I didn't mean to take up all your sweet time,
I'll give it right back to you one of these days.
I said I didn't mean to take up all your sweet time,
I'll give it right back one of these days.
And if I don't meet you no more in this world
then I'll, I'll meet you in the next one and don't be late, don't be late.
'Cause I'm a voodoo child, voodoo child,
Lord knows I'm a voodoo child, hey hey hey.
I'm a voodoo child, baby.

Wait Till Tomorrow

Well, Iím standing here freezing inside your golden garden
I got my ladder leaned up against your wall
Tonightís the night we plan to run away together
Come on Dolly Mae, thereís no time to stall
But now youíre telling me that ah . . .
I think we better wait till tomorrow
Oh, Dolly Mae, girl you must be insane
So unsure of yourself leaning from your unsure window pane.
Do I see a silhouette of somebody pointing something from a tree
CLICK BANG what a hang
Your daddy just shot poor me
And I hear you say, as I fade away
We donít have to wait till tomorrow
