The Chinese Mile

[Lyrics]

 

American Townland

American townland
Snow in Iceland
Russian farmland
And the sword of Islam
The state of new Israel
Remembers Belsen
Now there's sand for Palestine
And grass for Israel

Won't you settle down, stop fighting for your gods...
Oh, settle down, stop fighting for your gods.
They can't hear you now, not with the noise of your guns.

Once were towering steeples
Now there's a soaring eagle
A crescent moon and a rising sun
Our prayers ascending, but what good will they bring?
If all that's willin' is more and more killin'

Won't you settle down, stop fighting for your gods...
Oh, settle down, stop fighting for your gods.
They can't hear you now, not with the noise of your guns.

The mountains of Mourne
The county Cork I was born in
This dirty old town
Where the rain's always fallin'..
Our prayers ascending, but what good will they bring?
When all that's willin' is more and more killin'

 

I Am Your Man

I'll be your father or your knight of love divine.
I'll be your punishment and I will strip you in the cold moonshine.
I'll be your memory and quietly slip away.
I'll present you with all religion and give you a ring every day.

Cause I am your man.

I'll be unworthy when I lick between your lips.
A slave to show you cowardice, a bold pirate and captain of ships.
I'll be a crucifix when I nail myself to your skin.
I will beg forgiveness from God and gently cleanse your sins.

Cause I am your man,
(Your darling, sweet heart, dear.)

I'll be Lord Byron if you want to be naked and free.
I'll be Lord Jesus if your caught in a storm at sea.
I will bring you peace to rid your soul of fear.
I will bring you release if you are lost in a veil of tears.

Cause I am your man.

I will ask for nothing…
But a promise for eternity.
And a vow to grant me your body.
And a charge to rule your destiny.

That's all I gotta say…. La La La etc.
