Four Firemen

Four firemen scrambled aboard their engine
and raced five miles,
blue and amber lights flashing
Emergency call from the army
But a surprise...
was waiting when they got there
The bathroom of the sergeant's mess
was covered with water (covered with water)
Their orders were to mop it up
and put it in order (put it in order)

The friends of the army fire brigade
came out in sympathy
We didn't join to mop the floors
or right the IMP...
[coughing]
They still had to do their jobs
and throw the book at you
You can't believe it's true

On questioned why they refused to do it,
they each replied,
"This is how I see it."
The first one to answer was Henry
"I could work." The others felt the same way
They all agreed it wasn't fair
We shouldn't be made to (shouldn't be made to)
It really is the principle
We should remain true to (should remain true to)

They fought through two world wars, you see,
with hand and tooth and fist
Now William said he'd never stand
for treatment such as this...
They still had to lose their jobs
and now they've been suspended
(The story isn't ended) The story isn't ended

 

Fourpenny Bus Ride

In...an age...when peeeeeople say,..."I...can't face...another day."

A fourpenny bus ride can take
One hour away
Out of his life
'Cause Johnny's a worker;
He works from nine to five
And home to the wife

From his boring day
He is far away...

The same little bus ride
Provides him with a way
To face his day
From Tooting to Chiswick,
His mind is free to roam
Far from his home

In the land of smiles
He rides for miles and miles...

He looks out the window
And dreams of days in the past
He knew wouldn't last
The standing conductor is there,
Asks him for his fare
And gives him a stare

Millions every day
Have to get away...

So take a fourpenny bus ride to where
People don't stare
Or get in your hair
There' a million and one things to be
When you learn how
To be free

Living day to day,
Each must find his way

 

Fragile

If blood will flow when flesh and steel are one
Drying in the color of the evening sun
Tomorrow's rain will wash the stains away
But something in our minds will always stay

Perhaps this final act was meant
To clinch a lifetime's argument
That nothing comes from violence
And nothing ever could
For all those born beneath an angry star
Lest we forget how fragile we are

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star like tears from a star
On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are
How fragile we are

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star like tears from a star
On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are
How fragile we are

 

Frame Of Mind

Oh, let us adore him
We need his sacrifice
Oh, let us adore him
We need all he has
We need him to help
We need all he has
We need our God, we know
Won't someone help me?
We need our God
We need our God, we know
Won't someone help me?
We need our God, we know
Won't someone help me?
Let me reach for him
for we are his
Oh, please let me hold him
He wept for his kingdom

[At this point the vocals become unclear and impossible to decipher. This lasts for a few minutes.]

Oh, let us adore him
We need his sacrifice
We need all he has, o God
Let him heal us

 

Friends

I likes to eat my friends
And make no bones about it
I likes to eat my friends
I couldn't do without it
Ain't a man or poet, friend
I know just how you'll taste
Your limbs go sliding down my throat
And never go to waste

Your death of course, will sadden me
Until I grok your essence
I know your life was not in vain
When digestion is commencing
Consider this a celebration
And the deepest pact of friends
And I hope that you will dine on me
When I come to an end

Even friends may come to you
With a new found revelation
But think of it as life renewed
And not their termination
"To know you is to eat you,"
Should be the code of lovers
Death brings the highest act of love
Preserved for one another

People say that what you are
Is only what you eat
And my friends become a part of me
Oh it's then that life's complete
To know you is to eat you
The act of love supreme
Each one of us inside himself
Can appetise the dream

 

Funny Friend And Me

In the quiet time of evening
When the stars assume their patterns
And the day has made his journey
And we wondered just what happened
To the life we knew before the world changed
When not a thing I held was true
But you were kind to me
And you reminded me...
That the world is not my playground
There are other things that matter
And when a simple needs protecting
My illusions all would shatter
But you stayed in my corner
The only world I knew was upside down
And now the world and me, I know you carry me

You see the patterns in the big sky
Those constellations look like you and I
Just like the patterns in the big sky
We could be lost we could refuse to try
But we made it through in the dark night
Would those lucky guys turn out to be
But that unusual blend of my funny friend and me

I'm not as clever as I thought I was
I'm not the boy I used to be because
You showed me something different
You showed me something pure
I always seemed so certain but I was really never sure
But you stayed and you called my name
When others would have walked out on a lousy game
And you could've made it through
But my funny friend and me

You see the patterns in the big sky
Those constellations look like you and I
That tiny planet and a bigger guy
I don't know whether I should laugh or cry

Just like the patterns in the big sky
We'll be together 'til the end is nigh
Don't know the answer or the reason why
We'll stick together till the day we die

If I had to do this all a second time
I won't complain or make a fuss
When the angels sing
Like that unlikely blend
Of those two funny friends
That's us.....

 

Gabriels Message

The Angel Gabriel from heaven came
His wings as drifted snow, his eyes as flames
"Oh hail" has said he to Holy Maiden Mary

Stand up for your right
Get up, stand up
Don't give up the fight
Get up, stand up
Stand up for your right
Get up, stand up
Don't give up the fight

Preacherman don't tell me, heaven is under the earth
I know, you don't know, what life is really worth
If all that glitters was gold
Heard the story which never been told
Now you see the light
So get up for your rights

Get up stand up
Sit up for your right
Get up stand up
Don't give up the fight
Get up stand up
Stand up for your right
Get up stand up
Don't give up the fight

Well people say: a great God will come from the sky
Take away everything
And make everybody feel high
If you know what life is worth
You will look to yours on earth
And now you see the light
Stand up for your rights

Get up, stand up
Get up, stand up
Stand up for your right
Stand up for your right
Get up, stand up
Get up, stand up
Don't give up the fight
People don't people done
Get up, stand up
Stand up for your right (sit Up)
Get up, stand up
Don't give up the fight

I'm sick and tired of
The same of shame of thing
Die and go to heaven in Jesus' name
Cause we know and we understand
That a mighty God is a livin man
Be so clear for sometime
But you cannot fool all the people all the time
Now you see the light
So get up for your rights

Get up stand up
Get up stand up
Stand up for your rights
Stand up for your rights
Get up stand up
Get up stand up

Ghost Story

I watch the Western sky
The sun is sinking
The geese are flying South
It sets me thinking

I did not miss you much
I did not suffer
What did not kill me
Just made me tougher

I feel the winter come
His icy sinews,
Now in the firelight
The case continues

Another night in court
The same old trial
The same old questions asked
The same denial

The shadows close me round
Like jury members
I look for answers in
The fire's embers

Why was I missing then
That whole December?
I give my usual line,
I don't remember

Another winter comes
His icy fingers creep
Into these bones of mine
These memories never sleep
And all these differences
A cloak I borrow
We kept our distances
Why should it follow
I must have loved you?

What is the force that binds the stars?
I wore this mask to hide my scars
What is the power that pulls the tide?
Never could find a place to hide

What moves the Earth around the sun?
What could I do but run and run and run?
Afraid to love, afraid to fail
A mast without a sail

The moon's a fingernail
And slowly sinking
Another day begins
And now I'm thinking

That this indifference
Was my invention
When everything I did
Sought your attention

You were my compass star
You were my measure
You were a pirate's map
Of buried treasure

If this was all correct
The last thing I'd expect
The prosecution rests
It's time that I confess
I must have loved you
I must have loved you

 

Heaven Never Seemed So Far Away

Good friends and I'm a stranger
So hard to circulate
Crowded streets, I see no faces
No place for a changing soul
Like a ship on an angry ocean
Ferris wheel that spins too fast
For a dog, snarling in a corner
Heaven never seemed so far away

Maybe the game is someone else's
Too tired to play along
Go on your way takin' chances
Your way is yours alone
For an artist in a hungry basement
Or a rain on a lonely man
Or a kid, fightin' with his father
Heaven never seemed so far away

Good friends and I'm a stranger
So hard to circulate
Crowded streets, I see no faces
No place for a changing soul
Like a ship on an angry ocean
Ferris wheel that spins too fast
For a dog, snarling in a corner
Heaven never seemed so far away
