To hell with burgundy

Earthbound

WHO WANTS TO CHANGE THE WORLD?


Night after night in front of my TV
Start to lose sight of what goes on beyond the screen
Close all the curtains and turn out the lights
Can't even remember my wrong from my right

I used to protest, struggle and shout
Now I don't know what all the fuss is about
And all of you families locked in your houses
Safe and secure away upon the night
And all of you families locked in your houses
Can't even remember your wrong from your right

Give me a clue, show me a sign
Then I'll tell all my friends they're all doing fine
Who wants to change the world?
Who wants to change the world?
No need to worry about famine and wars
No need to worry about death 'til it's yours
No need to worry about famine and wars 'til they're yours
Who wants to change the world?

And from high on a hill you look down on the town
You can see all the lights but you can't hear a sound
And then one by one all the lights they go out
Makes you wonder what the world's all about

Who wants to change the world?


SOMEWHERE, ANYWHERE


You try so hard and people put you down
And you can't go on, no you can't go on
You wish you'd never been born, you'd never been born
And it's been too long, yeah it's been too long

Let me get somewhere
Let me get anywhere away from here

As the sun goes down
I will feel your heat
As you lie
Beside me

Let me get somewhere
Let me get anywhere away from here

If you dream of me
Your memory
I will be
Be thinking
You try so hard and people put you down
And you can't go on, no you can't go on
You wish you'd never been born, you'd never been born
And it's been too long, yeah it's been too long

Is this my time of life
Pick up the carving knife
I had the key to life
I locked myself out

Let me get somewhere
Let me get anywhere away from here


ON A SHIP


Like I woke on a ship in the middle of the ocean
Miles from the bed where I thought I was sleeping
And the ship was an old one and the knots were tied tightly
And the feeling did take me like some old friend in a dream
Long dead and unseen
But warm, all the same

And there's nowhere to go and you can't run away
Just the miles of the blue that bid you to stay
And your feet have grown into the planks on the deck
You don't care where you came from, you just want to know why
There's no more innocence
No more memories

Try to remember the place where the fire burns, try!
Try to remember, you try to remember
There's no more future
Where did our lives go?

There's nowhere to go and you can't run away
Just the miles of the blue that bid you to stay
And your feet have grown into the planks on the deck
You don't care where you came from, you just want to know why
You woke on a ship in the middle of the ocean
Miles from the bed where you thought you were sleeping
And the ship was an old one and the knots were tied tightly
And the feeling did take you like some old friend in a dream
Long dead and unseen
But warm, all the same

The sailor went to sea, sea, sea, sea
To see what he could see, see, see, see
But all that he could see, see, see, see
Was the bottom of the deep blue sea ...


THE RAZOR OF TRUTH


Tell the truth and put the devil to shame
All you want to tell me is your number and your name
When I say "Who are you?" I mean "What have you done?"
Tell me a story or we'll never be one

So cross my heart and start to die
Tell me a story, don't you lie
With the razor of truth we could slice up our lives
Spilling into the joy, so special, so sore, so unseen
So sweet from the lies

Tell the truth and put the devil to shame
All you want to tell me is your number and your name (What's your name?)
So show me your hands, I can read between the lines
What have you done here, when did you die?

With the razor of truth we can slice up our lives


FALLING


You watch me as I'm falling yet again
You know I am crying
I know you'll catch me in the end
For it's all or nothing, you never ask me why
We're just waiting for the dream to fade
That's no surprise

Will we make it, don't ask me where
Will we rise up together
Or will I see you there
For it's all or nothing, you never ask me why
We're just waiting for the dream to fade
And that's no surprise

Sometimes when I think it's a dream
I'm deciding every move
And I hope there'll be a moment
But I hope it's not too soon
When I see your television
And we'll never get away
And like flightless birds we can only watch the sky
And like flightless birds we can only watch the sky

You watch me as I'm falling yet again
You know I am crying
I know you'll catch me in the end
Oh, it's all or nothing, you never ask me why
We're just waiting for the dream to fade
That's no surprise
We're just waiting for the dream to fade...


GO


Well, a lot's gone down since you went away, baby
You're coming home to a man you donít know
Could not imagine that you would leave me cryin'
I shed so many tears, baby youíll ever know

I said go, go, go, go
Take your future in your hands
And donít let it show
Show, go, go
Take a hold of your future
You donít love me no more
You donít love me

Well, I just couldnít believe it when you walked out the door
Could not imagine that you would leave me so sore
I was so blind I could hardly move
I cried in the bathroom, baby sayin'
Please don't go

I never thought that Iíd ever feel so blue
I never thought that I'd ever lose youÖ

I said go, goÖ


MOTHER OF THE SEA

0 mother of the sea I come to you without cause
Though my heart is so low in her sky
Destiny is my fear
And happening is my thought
Should I wait, should I run, should I crawl?

0 mother of the sea
Do you guide, do I lead?
Is the spinning, oh certain, the wheel
0 maiden, your man
The creasing of their hands
As they touch, as they search, as they rise

0 mother of the sea
Do you guide, do I lead?
Is the spinning, oh certain, the wheel
0 maiden, your man
The creasing of their hands
As they touch, as they search, as they rise

0 mother of the sea
I come to you without cause
Though my heart is so low in her sky


EARTHBOUND

Earthbound feet, grazing on gravel
Skybound mind in treetop and travel
Can't seem to get on the glorious flight from the ground

The river swirls with smoke from the fire
Cleaner, cleanse and dash my desire
That's eating me, eating me as I'm blind

Oh, hope, you fickle hand
Oh, hope, you sunset land
When the sky cracks you tumble down
Can't ease me, can't ease the load

The mountain at which I served my toil
And the boulders grey that fed me whole
Can't escape this dagger's depth
Nor climb up to the sun

Oh, hope, you fickle hand
Oh, hope, you sunset land
When the sky cracks you tumble down
Can't ease me, can't ease the load


DANGEROUSLY LOOSE


Looked out of my window
The light was bright and the sky was blue
It was just another dream in heavenly hue

And last night with tears in our eyes
And broken glass beneath our feet
Splintered thorns burning bright, last night

And somebody said
You'd be my devil and you'd be my friend
Nobody else to answer to
I might put the blame on you

Can you tell the difference?
Lying in your bed, lying through your teeth
Bringing just another story
You're just another thief

And last night come stealing our senses
It's a trick of the light
Do you feel too much?
Do you feel all right?

And somebody said
You'd be my devil and you'd be my friend
Nobody else to answer to
I might put the blame on you
Dangerously loose


FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS


For whom does the bell toll?
It tolls for me
Send not for whom the be
It tolls for thee, it tolls for thee

Out across the land there
And down through the grey rocks and pines
You can see us anywhere
Awaiting on time, for all time

Taken by surprise again
You think you worked it out and then
You've got to start it all over
All over again

And in the sun and the warm wind
The snow will fall
You better not think for a moment
That you know it all

For whom does the bell toll?
It tolls for me
Send not for whom the bell tolls
It tolls for thee, it tolls for thee
