Stopping The World

Something has fallen over me
Everything has changed
I heard the distant voices
They'd come to rearrange me

Nothing perceived
Is really as it is
The world is a lie
More beautiful than herself

My eyes have been closed too long
I remember this
This is where I belong

Too much is possible
When everything is transient
How can we limit ourselves
Waiting for something better

My eyes have been closed too long
I remember this
This is where I belong

We're stopping, we're stopping
We're stopping, we're stopping
We're stopping the world
And baby all of this
Is meant for you and me
We're stopping, we're stopping
We're stopping, we're stopping
We're stopping the world
And it's real, it's so real

Here she comes
And she shines like the sun
And she says we'll soon be there
And the change and the transience
Is stopping the world
It's so real
Stopping the world
And it's so real
We're stopping the world
It's so real
We're stopping the world
The world, the world, the world
The world, the world

 

Oceanic Feeling

She is somewhere in darkness
She is hidden from eyes
Waiting for the words
Watching for the signs
She is walking in fire
Cleansing her mind
Seeking out new worlds
She knows what she could find

It's a world full of meaning
It's a beautiful revelation
It's the oceanic feeling
It's a crazed imagination

Staring into water
Looking for the truth
Climbing on mountains
Closer to the ageing truth
She is captured by the moonlight
She is hypnotised
She is driven by visions
And all will be realised
She is climbing up seven steps
To the temple of Solomon
Crying to the people
Take the road
That I have travelled on

It's a world full of meaning
Free my soul It's a beautiful revelation
Free my soul
It's the oceanic feeling
Free my soul
It a crazed imagination
Free my soul

Now her sight is straight
And her mind is clear
And it feels so alive
When the gates are so near
Ah the gates are so near
The gates are near

Now the great mysteries
And the riddle of the Sphinx
Will all be revealed
To the man who thinks
Who thinks as a child
Without the stains of birth
Born into sleep
On senseless earth

It's a world full of meaning
Free my soul It's a beautiful revelation
Free my soul
It's the oceanic feeling
Free my soul
It's a crazed imagination
Free my soul

 

Millionaire Hero

I don't believe
Anyone is to blame
I think your eyes only see
What you want them to see
As the rain falls slow
And light on your hair
I don't believe
That we are to blame
Time is our enemy
Not easily slain
Let me paint you in tears
In your discontent

I don't want to be another
Millionaire hero
I don't want to be another
Millionaire hero
Oh God I love this day
Oh God I love this day

I don't believe in politics
It shuns my understanding
Politics is a compromise
I don't need to compromise
I don't need to compromise
I don't need to compromise

I don't want to be another
Millionaire hero
I don't want to be another
Millionaire hero
Oh God I love this day
Oh God I love this day
I'll be so lonely without you
I'll be so lonely without you
And I will be without you
I will be without you
This love is an abyss
Deep inside of me
I fall
You're in everything I do
I don't explain this love
I remain true to you
True to me, true to you

 

Don't Make Me Breath You In

Strange words you say
Mad thoughts you think
I will only follow
My own way

Don't make me breathe you in
I don't want to be your friend
I don't like the way you use me
Don't make me breathe you in

I see you turning circles
Endlessly spinning 'round
Your head is drunk with delusion
Your senses tightly bound
And you may never know
Who I really am
I have to leave you here
I have to get away

Don't make me breathe you in
I don't want to be your friend
I don't like the way you use me
Don't make me breathe you in

There's a fire inside of me
You know I did not light it
If I dare to speak of it
I know you'll burn me for it
Bathe me in innocence again
For one more time I want to be
Beside you to begin again
And you would believe me

Don't make me breathe you in
I don't want to be your friend
I don't like the way you use me
Don't make me breathe you in
Don't make me breathe you in
I don't want to be your friend
I don't like the way to use me
Don't make me breathe you in
Just let me breathe

 

Love And Possession

Once again sleepless and empty
Once again under the spell
On my knees before the throne
Of magic night, oh she knows me well
Dressed in black, a dancing ballerina
My mind, your stage, do what you will
Take me as your prisoner
I will surely love you still

Woman, is it so easy?
Devil beats a victory drum
I am searching for a place
Where I can see you and I
For who we really are

What is it that I know
When all I know
And want to know is you
Oh beauty, you hide so much beneath
I could find anything in you
How should I see the rain wet streets
Feel this cold?
Understand I cannot stay or run
When you come to me and paint my day
In all the perfect colours of the sun

Woman, is it so easy
Devil beats a victory drum
I am searching for a place
Where I can see you and I
For who we really are

If I should ask to be set free
Would you loose these chains,
Break your spell?
Would it hurt me when you leave
To be torn apart
Mindless, heartless,
Blind and still alive?

I will find it, I will find it
I will spend some time alone
The sacred place is deep within
It's somewhere you can't go
All I need is time
All I need is time
All I need is time
All I want is you
All I need is you
All I want is to be with you
All I need is time with you

 

Upside Down

Sad that we so innocently
Mastermind a plan
That teaches us indifference
To what we don't understand
The great child existence
So easily forgets
Everything that she's done wrong
We are the silhouettes,
The consequence and the miracle
Of two million years of reasoning

Wait a while won't you please
We've got a system
To deal with your grieving
You might as well believe
It'll be all right in the morning
Some of us are secretly
Becoming diplomats
And tortoise politicians
In our black benevolent hats
As if to say, as if to say
It's all over
Is it too late for us to change?

Someone turns me upside down
Someone turns me upside down
It isn't me I'm thinking of
It isn't me I'm thinking of
Yeah, it's only love

We say that God and Green
Protest songs and rebirth
Are in and out of fashion
As if fashion created the earth
And the light through the window
Is a sign to be heeded
You don't need to buy no foreign
Magazines to read it
I am me, I am whole, I am one
Is it too late for us to change?

Someone turns me upside down
Someone turns me upside down
It isn't me I'm thinking of
It isn't me I'm thinking of

 

Out Of Mind

Is there any more to men
That hearts and bones
More to his journey
Than desire to be home
More to his loving
Than his love of love returned
Get your things together
This city will be burned

Who is the teacher
The lighthouse for the lost
If I listened to the preachers
They would hang me on a cross
From the western beaches
See the end to the misery
Sail out to meet the morning
On the far side of the sea

I wonder could I make it through
If I planned it just like you
Let the heart go cold as stone
And don't worry about the soul
Maybe the higher states of consciousness
Are other states of weariness
So I lay down and sleep a while
Wake up and the living will be fine

Got to wake up dreaming
Got to keep things out of mind
Believe that I'm not failing
Though I know that I have tried
Inside I'm screaming
Inside I'm crying
Inside I'm dying
Is the spirit truly mine?

 

Still Only One

I was tired of being mad
I was waiting for the sun
I was waiting for a change
I never saw it come
But I have seen the inescapable meaning
Through the old and twisted glass
Oh the feeling carried me far
In the evening, into the past

There is still only one
There is still only one

I cannot lie to myself
I feel this strange phenomenon
Is more than I can cheat
I feel it, I feel it coming on

There is still only one
There is still only one

This is the I
This is the I
This is the clear
And endless deep
Follow me

Like a sadness, now it comes
Creeping 'round when I should leave
Throwing this yellow light on me
That looks as old as I feel
And I feel the arms of ancient history
Reach for me, embrace and protect me
And I feel this strange phenomenon
Is so much more than I can cheat

There is still only one
There is still only one
There is still only one
There is still only one
Only one, only one
And I feel like I'll be there

 

Hunger For The Beautiful

Straight out, I know your song
I know what you're saying
And I believe you
Yes I believe you
It's all right, I'm on your side
This is our time
And I understand you
I understand you

My life is my sphere
The voice that you hear is only I
With nowhere to run
With nowhere to run
Falling in love
Falling in love all over again
All over again

We walk in Autumn's temple
Her church of gold and crystal air
Her beauty makes me small
It touches me inside
It touches you inside
I know you feel it too
By these invisible lines
That tie me to you

I know you're out there in the rain
Everything else is like a dream
Come inside into my head my love
Purify my streams
Be the other side of me
Till we come back again
With a hunger for the beautiful
Held tightly with my eyes
The secrets tumble through
There is no dying
Only an end to your words
There is no, there is no dying
Only an end, only an end
To your words
Words are just
Just a place
A place to hide
A place to hide
I say this now to you
I say this now to you
I write this down for you
I write this down for you

 

Mercy

My eyes are begging me for mercy
Birds are singing through the night
Something's wrong with the mother
Tired of suffering, tired of fight
And the stillness is uneasy
Full moon counting the minutes
As it moves across my window
Over the mad men that begin it

Early Spring and the smell of morning
Was all we needed to feel good
I remember there was nothing
Beyond the graveyard and Dean's wood
Nothing, nothing

Snow underfoot, down at the millrace
Frozen over
Throwing stones to break the ice
And crack the evening quiet
Sounds across the valley
One side to the other
And then home

My eyes are begging me for mercy
Birds are singing through the night
Something's wrong with the mother
Tired of suffering, tired of fight
And the stillness is uneasy
Full moon counting the minutes
As it moves across my window
Over the mad men that begin it
They begin it
They begin it all
Taking it away from me
Taking it away from me
Taking it away

 

Among Madmen

I am alone again at last
Not that I don't love you
Because I do
But I am among madmen
And you have not yet flown

This has been before me
This struggle to be as water
And flow in torrents
Or gently glaze
The sweetened ground

My will to seep
Through every chink
To penetrate the shells of men
Seems to smother
Underneath this haze
Of fate and love

I have begun to dance this song
I have turned into myself
Shooting arrows into moments
The reason must not fade
Nor the answer escape me
I am a dangerous place to be
While you love me this way

Where does the moment lie?
Where does the moment lie?
The waiting has me scared
Waiting among madmen
Waiting among madmen
Waiting among madmen
