Midnight Wire

Oh, what
Do you know of drowning,
Of midnight wire?
I dunno what came over me
I come across a burnin' desire
Fidgeting through madness
spill the guilt
And ditch the blame
Dyin'
while I'm livin'
Rich or dyin'
On the stage

Who's that callin' from the
Midnight wire?
Who's that fallin' from the
Midnight wire?
Who's crawlin' from the
Burnt-out fire?
Save my soul
From the midnight wire

Oh, low
And riddled with need I feel the gain
Of crowded shootin' sky
while smoothin' the plain
To soothe my fire safe
Across the midnight wire
Oh,the low
The storms of night
May help
My soul

Who's that callin' from the
Midnight wire?
Who's that fallin' from the
Midnight wire?
(midno, midno)
Who's crawlin' from the
Burnt-out fire?
Save my soul
From the midnight wire

Oh, it used to be
I'd shatter up
And splinter
Through the frame
I'd look
Into the middle of
A rose bouquet
Waitin',wantin',
Livin' for the moment of release
Found myself
Caught on fire
Tried to jump the midnight wire

Who's that callin' from the
Midnight wire?
Who's that fallin' from the
Midnight wire?
(midno, no, no)
Who's crawlin' from the
Burnt-out fire?
Save my soul
From the midnight wire
(midno, no, no)
(Oh, no, no, no)

Wash of lies, let go
Spark of life, burnt out
How much long
I'll endure
Grow and measure
Of my calling
New song and tune
{?} are a waste
Leave you, rumble of my days
Oh,I'm afraid
So tired
chained to fear
Not sure
which one could
Make the cure
Oh, no
Cross the midnight wire
Rushin' up, rushin' up
Brushin' up, hushin' up
Pickin' up, mixin' up
Fixin' up, fixin' up
Duckin' the issue
Of the midnight wire

Who's that callin' from the
Midnight wire?
Who's that fallin' from the
Midnight wire?
Who's crawlin' from the
Burnt-out fire?
Save my soul
From the midnight wire
Who's that callin' from the
Midnight wire?
Who's that fallin' from the
Midnight wire?
Who's crawlin' from the
Burnt-out fire?
Save my soul
From the midnight wire

 

Moon Over Bourbon Street

There's a moon over Bourbon Street tonight
I see faces as they pass beneath the pale lamplight
I've no choice but to follow that call
The bright lights, the people, and the moon and all
I pray everyday to be strong
For I know what I do must be wrong
Oh you'll never see my shade or hear the sound of my feet
While there's a moon over Bourbon Street

It was many years ago that I became what I am
I was trapped in this life like an innocent lamb
Now I can never show my face at noon
And you'll only see me walking by the light of the moon
The brim of my hat hides the eye of a beast
I've the face of a sinner but the hands of a priest
Oh you'll never see my shade or hear the sound of my feet
While there's a moon over Bourbon Street

She walks everyday through the streets of New Orleans
She's innocent and young from a family of means
I have stood many times outside her window at night
To struggle with my instinct in the pale moonlight
How could I be this way when I pray to god above
I must love what I destroy and destroy the thing I love
Oh you'll never see my shade or hear the sound of my feet
While there's a moon over Bourbon Street

 

Moonlight

In the moonlight

When the shadows play

When the thought of what could happen

Takes your breath away

Sighs and whispers

Quiet laughter in the air

Unspoken invitations everywhere

In the moonlight

All the words you say

Make it relatively easy

To be swept away

In the half-light

Can we trust the way we feel

Can we be sure that anything is real?

Stars keep secrets as they wander in-discretely

And the echoes of a song go drifting by

We must be careful not to lose our way completely

Or the magic that we see (seek?) here

We can't be sure will be here

In the morning

With the moon away

And if in each other's arms

Is where we're meant to stay

In the love-light

When our eyes have grown accustomed to the daylight

We'll see what waits for us to share

For all the things we've dreamed of in the moonlight

Will be there

 

Moonshine

Floatin' in space
Driftin' through the stars
Waitin' and waitin'
For you to appear
Gracin' the sun
Playin' in the moonshine
Would be a pleasure
If you were here too
Come up and join me
Come up and see me
Leave all behind you
Start something new
Oooo...

There will be good times
Like the time before
When the earth was new
And all was me and you
There will be good times
Like the time before
When the earth was new
And all was me and you

We'll fly together
From Jupiter to Mars
Return old friends as we pass through the stars (the stars)
So much to see
So much to do
Nothing to lose
Just me and you
Oooo...

There will be good times
Like the time before
When the earth was new
And all was me and you
There will be good times
Like the time before
When the earth was new
And all was me and you

 

Morning

Naked, you are simple as one of your hands,
Smooth, earthy, small, transparent, round:
You have moon-lines, apple-pathways:
Naked, you are slender as a naked grain of wheat.

Naked, you are blue as a night in Cuba;
You have vines and stars in your hair;
Naked, you are spacious and yellow
As summer in a golden church.

Naked, you are tiny as one of your nails-
Curved, subtle, rosy, till the day is born
And you withdraw to the underground world,

As if down a long tunnel of clothing and of chores:
Your clear light dims, gets dressed - drops its leaves-
And becomes a naked hand again

 

Mr Normal

When I walk down the street you point your ugly finger at me
Then you turn to your friends and you laugh, "Hey, what can that be?"
Well it's none of your business what I'm all about
Why don't you watch where you're going and shut your mouth
Just like a robot, just like a sheep,
like a zombie: dead asleep,
just like a spider with not enough feet
Oh you're normal

Mr., Mr., Mr. Normal
Mr., Mr., Mr. Normal
Mr., Mr., Mr. Normal
Mr., Mr., Mr. Normal
Oh you're very - very normal

Well, it makes you feel big to put people who are different down
Well, you call me dirty names 'cause it makes you feel like a man
You think the world was made just for you
and it scares you to know that it's my world too
You think that you are superior and I am inferior
You're misinformed and plain ignorant
Oh, oh, aren't we normal?

Mr., Mr., Mr. Normal
Mr., Mr., Mr. Normal
Mr., Mr., Mr. Normal
Mr., Mr., Mr. Normal

You want everyone that you meet to be just like you
and when they ain't, you think you got the right to tell 'em what to do
Like a computer with rusty gears,
you've been programmed with lies and fear
You want an answer to your question,
but when you get it, you give rejection
'cause your mind has been infected
but you call that normal

Mr., Mr., Mr. Normal
Mr., Mr., Mr. Normal
Mr., Mr., Mr. Normal
Mr., Mr., Mr. Normal

Oh, you're normal
Oh, you're normal
Oh, you're normal

Hello, Mr. Normal
Good day, Mr. Normal

Little grey monsters with razor sharp teeth
Control junkies with machine trained eyes
You can tell who they are by the way they sneer
whenever one of us walks by
Antennaes on their heads; they're on the alert
They wanna write our names in the book of the dead;
define our morals; lay tracks for our feet
They wanna be in charge of what is in our heads
They bubble, they - hmmm... yeah, link
They sparkle, they bubble
They're gonna get us in a whole lot of trouble

 

Murder By Numbers

The very thought of you makes
My heart sing
Like an April breeze
On the wings of spring
And you appear in all your splendour
My one and only love

The shadows fall
And spread their mystic charms
In the hush of night
While you're in my arms
I feel your lips so warm and tender
My one and only love

The touch of your hand is like heaven
A heaven that I've never known
The blush on your cheek
Whenever I speak
Tells me that you are my own

You fill my eager heart with
Such desire
Every kiss you give
Sets my soul on fire
I give myself in sweet surrender
My one and only love

The blush on your cheek
Whenever I speak
Tells me that you are my own
You fill my eager heart with
Such desire
Every kiss you give
Sets my soul on fire
I give myself in sweet surrender
My one and only love

My one and only love

 

My 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 (*see below)
My illusions all would shatter
But you stayed in my corner
The only world I know 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 your funny friend and me

You see the patterns in the big sky
Those constellations look like you and I
That tiny planet in 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 till 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 that that unlikely blend
Are those two funny friends
That's us

 

My Old School

When I was young I was a fool
I was somebody else's tool
I was at the mercy of my so-called friends
You never saw a joke like me
I was as dumb as I could be

If I could go back to my school
I'd show 'em how I broke the rules
I'd show 'em all my wordly cool

One day I fell out of the pack
I felt like Yasser Arafat
It was a close shave but I skipped that trap
And now I've done some growing up
I ain't the same old buttercup

If I could go back to my school
I'd show 'em all my worldly cool

I never dared to take a chance
I never asked a girl to dance
And all my dreams were out of reach
And when the girls came out to play
I never had a thing to say
And all my dreams were out of reach
I never thought to disobey
Not like I always do today

If I could go back to my school
I'd show 'em all my worldly cool

 

My One And Only Love

The very thought of you makes my heart sing
Like an April breeze
On the wings of spring
And you appear in all your splendor
My one and only love

The shadows fall and spread their mystic charms
In the hush of night
While you're in my arms
I feel your lips so warm and tender
My one and only love

The touch of your hand is like heaven
A heaven that I've never known
The blush on your cheek whenever I speak
Tells me that you are my own
You fill my eager heart with such desire
Every kiss you give sets my soul on fire
I give myself in sweet surrender
My one and only love

The blush on your cheek whenever I speak
Tells me that you are my own
You fill my eagle heart with such desire
Every kiss you give sets my soul on fire
I give myself in sweet surrender
My one and only love
My one and only love
