The Up

I cant stand to watch the six oclock news
Its enough to give an average, sensitive person the blues.
Cant get it up
I dont know about commercial appeal
But what you put in your head
Just cant help affect how you feel
So lets keep it up
Prophets of doom try to capture you
They get around like the asian flu,
But they cant get me
Because I go for the up

Im on the up side
I look for the up (that down just aint my style)
I go for the up
Im hooked on the up
Im on the upswing (I got my sights set high)
I go for the up

Whats the point of standing out in the rain,
Whats the sense of looking down,
It just gives your shoulders a pain
Cant get it up
Its a self-fulfilling prophecy
If you look for the worst then thats just
What it turns out to be
So keep looking up
The fickle finger just may point your way
It touches someone different every day,
But it cant touch me
Because I go for the up

And everybodys yelling at me to get back in line,
And they say Im crazy,
But still they have their sessions of deep depressions,
But it cant get me
Because I go for the up

 

The Very Last Time

Sometimes I wonder if Im still alive
How much abuse can someone stand and survive
How long Ive waited for this day to arrive
When I wont be a fool no more

Nobody knows how you push me around
Nobody sees how you treat me like Im your clown
I never made a sound

Its the very last time you will get on my case
Its the very last time cause
I wont be a fool no more
Its the very last time you will step on my face
Its the very last time cause
I wont be a fool no more

I still remember the look in your eyes
Just a reflection of the things you despise
But sooner or later Ive got to get wise
And I wont be a fool no more

Nobody sees how you treat me like dirt
Nobody knows just how badly a man can hurt
Youve got a lesson to learn

I can still feel the sting of your words
But I wont cry no matter how much it hurts
My head may go crazy, my heart it may burst
But I wont be a fool no more
No I wont be a fool no more

 

The Wheel

Some people say lifes like a merry-go-round
I think its more like a ferris wheel
cause sometimes youre up, sometimes youre down
Sometimes you just dont know what to feel

And just when you think youve got the game figured out
And you say youve had enough
The mysterious mad man with his hand on the lever
Dont seem to never ever want to let you off

You cant get off this wheel of karma
You cant stop the hands of time

Now I have a friend, I might have a few
Sometimes I think they just dont care
But I think sometimes they think the same thing of me, yeah
You might say weve got a problem there

You know we all got this habit
We like to talk too much
And that always tends to slow you down
But we never change direction
We just keep going round and round and round and round

And let me off this wheel of karma
Let me stop the hands of time

Seems like Ive been around so many places
And I must have learned a lot of things
And although I aint yet come up with a so-called answer
At least I think I finally learned how to sing

And theres just a few things I aint got sorted out
Sometimes they make my brain get sore
Like if kids were left of all devices
Would they ever come up with a thing like war

Let us off this wheel of karma
Let us stop the hands of time

 

There Goes My Inspiration

They say pain can bring out the artists best
But since youve been gone, I just cant care less
Common sense doesnt realize
It can hurt so bad
Everyday I sit in my garret staring at the floor
But my heart isnt in it anymore

There goes my inspiration
My reason for creation
There goes my inspiration
I felt it fly away when you said goodbye

Me and gaugin used to party down
I was hung in the louvre, I was renoirs pal
Vincent van gogh used to joke with me
Now they dont come round
Its all over town that the masters lost his touch
Im so lost I can hardly hold a brush

And now my palette is a sorry mix of grey and brown
And all the other art lovers stay away
cause Im bringing them down

Now I wander the left bank every day
Searching for my muse in sad cafes
Peddle my oils to the galleries
But they turn me down
Everybody says Im a master of technique
But the style and the sentiment is weak

 

Todd Rundgrens Utopia

I never was bothered by bad dreams
They never made me afraid
But then I never did dream I'd wake up
And find me in the freak parade.

I guess I had to find out the hard way
I shouldn't have been so proud
'Cause here I'm the main attraction
Of every giggle in the crowd.

So I gotta
Take my place in the freak parade
See my face in the freak parade.
In a world full of freaks
You can creep, you can crawl
But the world's biggest freak
Is the one with no balls.

You know you shouldn't poke fun at strangers
Or pity their case at all
'Cause there are lots of friends and lovers
That take it kind of personal.

You might appreciate our position
Don't laugh at our freaky ways
You might find yourself tomorrow
Marching in the freak parade.

You better
Take your place in the freak parade
See your face in the freak parade
Get of the sidewalk!

"Freedom Fighters"

Tucked away in the darkest cupboard of your heart
There's a feeling you can't let out
In a way you are just a soldier of the mind
You are marching, what are you marching about?

On your mark, now get set
Get back on your feet
We ain't down yet
You know we will get it
So don't you forget
That the world rolls on.

Your reward will come
It's just a question of how and when
Look around, everyone is wondering where it's at
Do you wonder, or do you know?

Clap your hands! Raise your voice
Some people will hide
They can't stand the noise
But we're freedom fighters
And we've got no choice.

In a way you are just a soldier of the mind
But the world rolls on.
Your reward will come

And the truth will come and the change will come
It's just a question of how and when
I can't believe my eyes.

"The Ikon"

Following the evolutionary acquisition of telepathic abilities, men discover themselves to be mankind and joyfully begin to adjust their thinking along these lines. As is not uncommon in
historic events, the more eloquent gather, in this case to unravel the snarl of a formerly physically oriented world. Out of the pomp, circumstance and unrestrained excitement of the event,
there is one lasting result: There remains the shining form of humanity's highest aspirations, molded in thought and more powerful and alive than any material world force. The Ikon.

On a day like no other
In a time unique, in a place divine
Keep your eye on the Ikon
Shining in the light of eternal mind.

I went to sleep a blind man
But when I awoke I saw
The legions of the lonely
See their faces, hear them call.

See how they hang on
Each one in a world of his own design
Listen to the Ikon
Ringing in the sound of eternal mind.

And the music plays forever
And it captures every ear
And the sound of barriers crashing down
Is the sweet harmony you hear.

Still, be still
To strong, so be still
Much too long, come down
Be still, look around
Listen here, be still
Hear the sound, be still.

Still we are here
We are still
Will we sing sweet
Sing we will
Still we are here
We are still
Nil is a fear all is nil
Still we are here we are still
Spill it let go let it spill.

The question comes to mind
About what should be done
And how much of the old will die
That the new may be begun
But you don't have to be afraid
Of being alone with nowhere to run.

You don't have to be afraid
To look yourself in the eye
You don't have to be afraid not to lie.

Someone knows who you are
Someone watches over you
Someone knows how you feel
And someone feels the same.

So you don't have to be afraid
Never fear, for you are living in eternal mind

For those who still recoil
For those who fear the pain
Of peering o'er the edge of
A new and different plane.

You don't have to be afraid
Whenever you go you come back again
So you don't have to be afraid
We live and we die
You don't have to be afraid to know why

 

Too Much Water

Too much, its too much, too much
Got too much water under the bridge
Got too much, too much, got too much
Got too much water under the bridge

I got to think of something, think of something
I got to think of something
We got to hang together, we got to hang together
We got to hang together, or hang separately

Maybe we got time to burn
I got a yen to hear myself talk
But I dont want to make that kind of history
Put your hand on the rock
And maybe youve got nothing left to learn
You put me in a state of shock
But do you want to make that kind of history
Put your hand on the rock
And let it all run out
You know why we got to hang together

Number one aint always number one
Instant karmas always coming back
And I dont want to make that kind of history
Put your hand on the rock
Tell ya mamma natures on the run
Bad karmas running in the back
But do we want to make that kind of history
Put your hand on the rock
And let it all run out
You know why we got to get together

We got no more time to burn
We got to crawl before we can walk
So if you wanna make a new kind of history
Put your hand on the rock
And I got a few things Id like to learn
I get tired of hearing myself squawk
And I wanna make a new kind of history
Put your hand on the rock
And let it all run out
You know why we got to hang together

 

Trapped

Brother john saw visions of god
So they put him in chains
For acting too odd
As the crowd shouted, "off with his head"
The priest said, "have mercy
Lets burn him instead"

Trapped
Trapped in a world that he never made

I woke up with my head on the floor
In a windowless cell
A room full of doors
I got lost, now Im so far behind
Took so much advice
Forgot my own mind

Trapped
Trapped in a world that I never made

We cant be slowed down by a big bunch of lip
And nobody cares about your paranoid trip
You know death and the devil sure got it easy today
Souls come so cheap some people give theirs away
Youve got to break out, youve got to prove youre alive
What makes you think that the weak survive

And if you dont have the stomach
For all this radical crap
Then have the guts to stand for something
Or youre gonna be trapped

Trapped
Trapped in a world that you never made

 

Trivia

When you hit your note
It's like you had no choice
I can't resist distraction's web
When you use that voice
On a crowded stage
I play soliloquy
I'm at the center of the earth
When you gaze on me

The familiar ring of the native drums
Sometimes I hardly recognize it
Inspiration comes
With the tip of my mind
Holding back the sea
I have no choice but to prevail
When you gaze on me

I've got the ghost of a new machine
Where I can find reality routine
Every time you fix your gaze on me

When you gaze on me
I feel a ring of fire
When you gaze on me
And I lose all desire
Fix your heart on me
I'll show you what I've memorized
Fix your gaze on me
I need to see your eyes [Uh - good God!]

Out in the cold the assassin waits
Armored by love no sword can penetrate
Every time you fix your heart on me
I'm a new machine
Where I can find reality routine
Every time you fix your gaze on me

"Monument"

I got the message in my mailbox
Nobody goes to church no more
They're closing down your little altar
They've locked the sanctuary door

Don't fight it
Who can say that you didn't try
Don't fight it
Old soldiers never die

Where will I go to leave my offering
To think about how life's so queer
And listen to the little choir
The sermon I don't care to hear

Don't fight it
Who can say that it's not the end
Don't fight it
And if we don't meet again
I know somewhere a monument
Stands in the name of our love
Somewhere are monuments
Standing in the name of our love

I've seen such strange times
Seems like lifetimes
Sometimes good and sometimes bad
And I don't see how it could
Have been much different
Everybody gave the best they had

 

Umbrella Man

When the sun just refuses to shine on through
And its cats and doggies all over you
You need some protection so what do you do
See the umbrella man
Go and see the umbrella man
When its raining - umbrella man, umbrella man

You can see him when its sunny, when the rain comes down
You ought to find a corner where hes always found
A reflection in a puddle, just turn around
To see the umbrella man
Go and see the umbrella man
When its raining - umbrella man, umbrella man

There are some things in life on which you can depend
Dont try to guess when itll rain again
You dont have to worry cause youve got a friend
Come see the umbrella man
I will be your umbrella man
When its raining - umbrella man

Go and see the umbrella man
Dont forget the umbrella man
When its raining - umbrella man
I will be your umbrella man, umbrella man

 

Up

I can't stand to watch the six o'clock news
It's enough to give an average sensitive person the blues
I can't get it up
I don't know about commercial appeal
But what you put in your head just can't help affect how you feel
So let's keep it up

Prophets of doom try to capture you
They get around like the Asian flu
But they can't get me

chorus:
Because I go for the up (I'm on the up side)
I look for the up (That down just ain't my style)
I go for the up
I'm hooked on the up (I'm on the upswing)
I look for the up (I got my sights set high)
I go for the up

What's the point of standing out in the rain
What's the sense in looking down it just gives your shoulders a pain
I can't get it up
It's a self-fulfilling prophesy
If you look for the worst, then that's just what it turns out to be
So keep looking up

The fickle finger just may point your way
It touches someone different every day
But it can't touch me

chorus

And everybody's yelling at me to get back into line
And they say I'm crazy
But still they have their sessions
Of deep depressions
But it can't get me
