Dancing Barefoot

She is benediction She is addicted to me She is the root connection and She is connecting with me
Here I go and I don't know why I float so ceaselessly Could it be she's taking over me?

Makes me come on like some heroine
She is sublimation She is the essence of being She is concentrating on He, who is chosen by she Here I go and I don't know why I float so ceaselessly Could it be she's taking over me? I'm dancing barefoot Heading for a spin Some strange music draws me in Makes me come on like some heroine



So You Want To Be (A Rock N Roll Star)




Hymn

When I am troubled in the night he comes to comfort me. He wills me through the darkness And the empty child is free to take his hand His sacred heart the heart that breaks the dawn. Amen. And when I think I've had my fill he fills up again.



Revenge

I feel upset. Let's do some celebrating. Come on honey, don't hesitate now. Needed you, you withdrew, I was so forsaken. Ah, but now the tables have turned, my move. I believe I'll be taking my revenge. Sweet revenge. I thought you were some perfect read-out. Some d-digital delay had obscured And phased my view of the wicked hand you played. Ah, the sands and hands of time have run out, run out, ah you better face it. Ah, this thing's run amok, this luck I do know how to replace it with revenge. Oh, sweet revenge. I gave you a wristwatch, baby. You wouldn't even give me the time of day. You want to know what makes me tick. Now it's me that's got precious little to say. For the ghosts of our love have dried have died. There's no use faking it. Ah, the spirits gonna close in on you tonight. High time I was taking my revenge. Sweet revenge. Revenge. Revenge. All the gold and silver couldn't measure up my love for you It's so immaterial I don't wait around for you Nobody gets anything Nobody gets nothing No don't leave me no space in your little boat You ain't gonna need No you ain't gonna need no little boat You are living on my time my dear Revenge Sweet revenge Sweet sweet revenge



Citizen Ship

I was nothing It didn't matter to me Ah, there were tanks all over my city There was war outside the windows And children in the streets throwing rocks at tanks Ain't got a passport Ain't got my real name Ain't got a chance, sport, at fortune and fame And I walk these endless streets, won't you give me a lift A lift. A lift. On your citizen ship They were rioting in Chicago, movement in LA Sixty-eight it broke up the Yardbirds We were broke as well Took it underground, MC borderline, up against the wall The wall. The wall Show your papers, boy Citizen ship we got memories Stateless, they got shame Cast adrift from the citizen ship Lifeline denied, exiled this castaway Blind alley in New York City, in a foreign embrace If you're hungry you're not too particular about what you'll taste Men in uniform gave me vinegar, spoon of misery But what the hell, I fell, I fell It doesn't matter to me Citizen ship we got mem'ries Citizen ship, we got pain Cast adrift from the citizen ship Lifeline denied, exiled this castaway I was caught like a moth with its wings outta sync Cut the chord. Overboard. Just a refugee Lady liberty, lend a hand to me, I've been cast adrift. Adrift, adrift, adrift, adrift, adrift, adrift On the citizen ship we got memories Citizen ship, we got pain Lose your grip on the citizen ship You're cast, you're cast away On the citizen ship you got memory Citizen ship you got pain Citizen ship you got identity A name, a name, a name... What's your name, son? What's your name...? What's your name? Nothing. I got nothing [ ] Jersey Give me your tired, your poor Give me your huddled masses Your wartorn [ ] Give me your wartorn and your [ ] Lift up your [ ] unto me Ah, mythology



Seven Ways Of Going

I've got seven ways of going, seven wheres to be, Seven sweet disguises, seven ways of serving Thee. Lord, I do extol Thee, for Thou has lifted me. Woke me up and shook me out of mine iniquity. Oh, I was undulating in the lewd impostered night. Steeped in a dream to rend the seams to redeem the rock of right. Swept through the seas of Galilee and the Seven Hills of Rome. Seven sins were wrung from the sight of me, Lo I turned my neck toward home. Ah, I opened up my arms to You, and we spun from life to life, 'Til you loosened me and let me go toward the everlasting light. In this big step I am taking seven seizures for the true. I got seven ways of going, seven ways of serving You. As I move through seven levels As I move upon the slate As I declare to you The number of my moves As I speculate the eighth Seeking love without exception A light upon the swarm Seeking love without exception A saint in any form.



Broken Flag

Nodding tho the lamp's lit low, nod for passers underground. To and fro she's darning, and the land is weeping red and pale. Weeping yarn from Algiers. Weeping yarn from Algiers. Weaving tho the eyes are pale, what will rend will also mend. The sifting cloth is binding, and the dream she weaves will never end. For we're marching toward Algiers. For we're marching toward Algiers. Lullaby tho baby's gone. Lullaby a broken song. Oh, the cradle was our call. When it rocked we carried on. And we marched on toward Algiers. For we're marching toward Algiers We're still marching for Algiers. Marching, marching for Algiers. Not to hail a barren sky. Sifting cloth is weeping red. The mourning veil is waving high a field of stars and tears we've shed. In the sky a broken flag, children wave and raise their arms. We'll be gone but they'll go on and on and on and on and on.
