Storm The Gates Of Heaven

[laughter]
Oh!
Hello!

Have^ you ever thought^ as the hearse goes by
That^ you may be the next to die?
They wrap you in a big white sheet
And then they burry you eight feet deep*
And then
Your casket^ begins to leak!
Ah ha!*

The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out
The worms play pinochle on your snout
Your liver^ turns a slimy green
And pus runs out like big whipped^ cream
Your eyeballs, they turn to cherry red*
And that's what you look^ like^ when you are dead

Storm the gates of heaven
Hold your head up high
Storm the gates of heaven
Look God right in the eye
Storm the gates of heaven
If anyone could do it, I could!
Storm the gates of heaven
And ask God "Who's gonna pay for the blood?"
Who's gonna pay for the blood?

Trials and tribulations
Oppressed and made ashamed
Life for land, death for kingdom
You've just changed your name
False prophets in their armour
Destruction at their feet
Onward Christian soldiers,
Marching to the beat
Marching to the beat
Beat

Storm the gates of heaven
The church of Man is lost
Storm the gates of heaven
Gonna take it to the Boss
Storm the gates of heaven
Twisted 'round and 'round and 'round
Storm the gates of heaven,
Children of the Lamb
Children of the Lamb

Traveling tabernacles
Armed with spears and guns
Power of persuasion
Run, you heathen ,run
Bound in false conversion
Mourning night and day
Carcass of the jackel
On your knees and pray
On your knees and pray

Storm the gates of heaven
Knocking at your door
Storm the gates of heaven
The truth and nothing more
Storm the gates of heaven
How my heart has cried
Storm the gates of heaven
And I'll meet you in the sweet by and by
In the sweet by and by

I was there at the Inquisition
I was there at the witchcraft trials
I was there when they murdered Montezuma
And they destroyed the Aztec empire
Using God's name to murder
and to steal other people's land
Using His name to persecute
And take away the freedom of Man
And take away the freedom of Man

Storm the gates of heaven
Raise your heads up high
Storm the gates of heaven
Look God right in the eye
If anyone could do it, I could, you could!
We could storm the gates of heaven
and ask God, "Who's gonna pay for the blood?"
Who's gonna pay for the blood?
Who's gonna pay for the blood?

 

Straight to My Heart

Well in a hundred years from now
They will attempt to tell us how
A scientific means to bliss
Will supersede the human kiss

A sub atomic chain
Will maybe galvanize the brain
A biochemic trance
Will eliminate romance

But why ever should we care
When there are arrows in the air
Formed by lovers' ancient art
That go straight to my heart

A future sugar coated pill
Would give our lovers time to kill
I think they're working far too much
For the redundancy of touch

But what will make me yours
Are a million deadly spores
Formed by lovers' ancient art
That go straight to my heart

Come into my door
Be the light of my life
Come into my door

You'll never have to sweep the floor
Come into my door
Be the light of my life
Come into my door
Come and be my wife
I'll be true
To no one but you

If it's a future world we fear
We have tomorrow's seeds right here
For you can hold them in your hand
Or let them fall into the sand

But if our love is pure
The only thing of which we're sure
Then you can play your part
And go straight to my heart

If I should seek immunity
And love you with impunity
Then the only thing to do
Is for me to pledge myself to you

But they only dealt one card
So for me it is not hard
You're the bright star in my chart
You go straight to my heart

Come into my door
Be the light of my life
Come into my door
You'll never have to sweep the floor
Come into my door
Be the light of my life
Come into my door
Come and be my wife
I'll be true
To no one but you

 

Strange Fruit

Southern trees bear a strange fruit,
Blood on the leaves and blood at the root
Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze
Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees.
Pastoral scene of the gallant South
Bulging eyes and the twisted mouth
Scent of magnolia sweet and fresh
And the sudden smell of burning flesh.
Here is the fruit for the crows to pluck
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck
For the sun to rot, for the trees to drop
Here is a strange and bitter crop

 

Strange Things Happen

Strange things happen to a man on the road
Strange things happen to a man who's alone
Doesn't matter where you come from
Doesn't matter where you wanna go
Doesn't matter if you're on your way home
Doesn't matter who you know
Strange things happen to a man on the road
Strange things happen to a man who's alone

Back home you gotta solid life
That life don't mean a thing out here
Back home you gotta loving wife
She can't hear you calling out here

Strange things happen
Strange things happen
Strange things happen that you never heard about at home

Doesn't matter where you come from
Doesn't matter where you wanna go
Doesn't matter if you're on your way home
Doesn't matter who you know
Strange things happen to a man on the road
Strange things happen to a man who's alone

Strange things happen
Strange things happen
Strange things happen that they never told about at home

 

Sun Came Bursting Through My Cloud

One dreary day,
Sad and gloomy grey,
Cold wind blew the north sign on the rooftop weather vane
The sky was overcast
Moving mighty fast,
When at the very moment I expected falling rain,

Sun came bursting through my cloud,
Breaking daylight through the misty shroud
You came walking out from in the crowd

As I caught your gaze
A golden summer haze
Seemed to force a clearing in the shadow of the storm
Standing face to face,
All the crowded space
Became a dark horizon 'round the breaking of the dawn

Sun came bursting through my cloud,
Breaking daylight through the misty shroud
You came walking out from in the crowd
To the sunlight from the shade
You were clearing in the winter pane,
Making shelter from the coming rain

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
Doo...
Doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo
Doo, doo, doo doo

Sun came bursting through my cloud,
Breaking daylight through the misty shroud
You came walking out from in the crowd
To the sunlight from the shade
You were clearing in the winter pane,
Making shelter from the coming rain
Doo, doo, doo doo
Doo, doo, doo doo
Sun come bursting through my cloud
Doo, doo, doo doo

 

Take Me To The Sunshine

I've been working too hard at the office all year
I've been saving all my days for a break
And I've got to get away with my baby for a time
If it's just for my sanity's sake

Nothing but work and never to play
Make Jack a dull boy or so they say
And nothing in the world gonna make me stay
I've just got to get away for a day

Oh the smog in the city is clogging up my head
And the noise of the traffic and the poison lead
Too many people I must confess
I'm looking for the cure of terminal stress

Take me to the sunshine
Take me to the sun

It's a perfect paradise and it ain't no trick
You can walk, you can run, play golf 'til you're sick
Swim all day, you can dance all night
You can ever fall in love if you're feeling right

The surf will roar and the birds will sing
And the warm wind sighs as you practice your swing
And the cares of the world will fade away as you
Watch the sun setting on a golden bay

They say that modern man needs to find himself
And what's bad for his spirit is bad for his health
And when the world's used up and there's nowhere else
You'll realize Mother Nature is the Commonwealth

Take me to the sunshine
Take me to the sun
Take me to the sun

Take me to the sunshine
Take me to the sun
Take me to the sun

I've been working too hard at the office all year
I've been saving all my days for a break
And I've got to get away with my baby for a time
If it's for my sanity's sake

 

Tea In The Sahara

My sisters and I
Have this wish before we die
And it may sound strange
As if our minds are deranged
Please don't ask us why
Beneath the sheltering sky
We have this strange obsession
You have the means in your possession

We want our tea in the Sahara with you
We want our tea in the Sahara with you

The young man agreed
He would satisfy their need
So they danced for his pleasure
With a joy you could not measure
They would wait for him here
The same place every year
Beneath the sheltering sky
Across the desert he would fly

Tea in the Sahara with you
Tea in the Sahara with you

The sky turned to black
Would he ever come back?
They would climb a high dune
They would pray to the moon
But he'd never return
So the sisters would burn
As their eyes searched the land
With their cups full of sand

Tea in the Sahara with you
Tea in the Sahara with you
Tea in the Sahara with you
Tea in the Sahara with you

 

The Book Of My Life

Let me watch by the fire and remember my days
And it may be a trick of the firelight
But the flickering pages that trouble my sight
Is a book I'm afraid to write

It's the book of my days, it's the book of my life
And it's cut like a fruit on the blade of a knife
And it's all there to see as the section reveals
There's some sorrow in every life

If it reads like a puzzle, a wandering maze
Then I won't understand 'til the end of my days
I'm still forced to remember,
Remember the words of my life

There are promises broken and promises kept
Angry words that were spoken, when I should have wept
There's a chapter of secrets, and words to confess
If I lose everything that I possess
There's a chapter on loss and a ghost who won't die
There's a chapter on love where the ink's never dry
There are sentences served in a prison I built out of lies.

Though the pages are numbered
I can't see where they lead
For the end is a mystery no-one can read
In the book of my life

There's a chapter on fathers a chapter on sons
There are pages of conflicts that nobody won
And the battles you lost and your bitter defeat,
There's a page where we fail to meet

There are tales of good fortune that couldn't be planned
There's a chapter on god that I don't understand
There's a promise of Heaven and Hell but I'm damned if I see

Though the pages are numbered
I can't see where they lead
For the end is a mystery no-one can read
In the book of my life

Now the daylight's returning
And if one sentence is true
All these pages are burning
And all that's left is you

Though the pages are numbered
I can't see where they lead
For the end is a mystery no-one can read
In the book of my life

 

The Change

No one can say
where love will go
the change

Don't know if I
Am here or there
Don't even really
Know my name

Am I holding on
Am I holding on
Will it always
Be the way

And the lips that kiss
Can also kill
The change

The touch of love
Can take your soul
The change

I walk through walls
I am the gun

 

The Fool

The butterfly dances overhead
And the dark lights up my lips
I'm steppin' right off the edge
Can you take on the fool?
Trancin' round a field of joy
I change from girl to boy
Can you deliver fun from cruel?
Could you laugh at truth with a fool?
Can you deliver fun from cruel?
Could you laugh at truth with a fool?

I got no name and
I got no race and
I got no mind to
Tie down with you
I'd give you all my
Sidekick flowers but
You can't have me, no
I am the fool

{You trust me too strong to refuse} (?)
Sweet fool, what's to loose?
You could begin at the end if you choose
The mad hold hands with the fool
Sunlight fills the everywhere
As we step right off the edge
Could you wear the world as your jewel,
Or could you shine it on as a fool?
Could you wear the world as your jewel,
Or could you shine it on as a fool?

You want teasin' and
You want freedom and
You want pleasin' to
Be taught in school
You need playthings and
Everyday things but
You can't have me, no
I am the fool

I got no name and
I got no race and
I got no mind to
Tie down with you
I'd give you all my
Sidekick flowers but
You can't have me, no
I am the fool

You want teasin' and
You want freedom and
You want pleasin' to
Be taught in school
You need playthings and
Everyday things but
You can't have me, no
You are the fool
