Lyrics

Sunday
04:46
Nothing remains
We could run when the rain slows
Look for the cars or signs of life
Where the heat goes

Look for the drifters
We should crawl under the bracken
Look for the shafts of light on the road
Where the heat goes

Everything has changed

For in truth
It's the beginning of nothing
And nothing has changed
Everything has changed

For in truth
It's the beginning of an end
And nothing has changed
Everything has changed

In your fear
Of what we have become
Take to the fire
Now we must burn
All that we are
Rise together
Through these clouds
As on wings

(In your fear
Seek only peace
In your fear
Seek only love
In your fear
Seek only peace
In your fear
Seek only love
In your fear
In your fear
As on wings)

This is the trip
And this is the business we take
This is our number, all my trials
Lord, will be remembered

Everything has changed
Cactus
02:55
Sitting here wishing on a cement floor
Just wishing that I had just something you wore
I put it on when I go lonely
Will you take off your dress and send it to me

I miss your kissing and I miss your head
And a letter in your writing doesn't mean you're not dead
Just run outside in the desert heat
Make your dress all wet and send it to me

I miss your soup and I miss your bread
And a letter in your writing doesn't mean you're not dead
So spill your breakfast and drip your wine
Just wear that dress when you're dying

D - A - V - I - D

Sitting here wishing on a cement floor
Just wishing that I had just something you wore
Bloody your hands on a cactus tree
Wipe it on your dress and send it to me

Sitting here wishing on a cement floor
Just wishing that I had just something you wore
Slip Away
06:05
Oogie waits for just another day
Drags his bones to see the Yankees play
Bones Boy talks and flickers gray
They slip away

Once a time they nearly might have been
Bones and Oogie on a silver screen
No one knew what they could do
Except for me and you
They slip away
They slip away

Don't forget to keep your head warm
Twinkle, twinkle Uncle Floyd
Watching all the world and war torn
How I wonder where you are

Sailing over Coney Island
Twinkle, twinkle Uncle Floyd
We were dumb, but you were fun, boy
How I wonder where you are

Oogie knew there's never ever time
Some of us will always stay behind
Down in space it's always 1982
The joke we always knew
What's the matter with you
Come on, let's go
Slip away

Don't forget to keep your head warm
Twinkle, twinkle Uncle Floyd
Watching all the world and war torn
How I wonder where you are

Sailing over Coney Island
Twinkle, twinkle Uncle Floyd
We were dumb, but you were fun, boy
How I wonder where you are
Slow Burn
04:41
Here shall we live in this terrible town
Where the price for our eyes
Shall squeeze them tight like a fist
And the walls shall have eyes
And the doors shall have ears
But we'll dance in the dark
And they'll play with our lives

Like a slow burn
Leading us on and on and on
Like a slow burn
Turning us 'round and 'round and 'round
But who are we
So small in times such as these
Slow burn
Slow burn

These are the days, these are the strangest of all
These are the nights, these are the darkest to fall
But who knows, echoes in tenement halls
Who knows, though the years snare them all

Like a slow burn
Leading us on and on and on
Like a slow burn
Twirling us 'round and 'round and upside down
There's fear overhead
There's fear overground
Slow burn
Slow burn

Like a slow burn
Leading us on and on and on
Like a slow burn
Turning us 'round and 'round and 'round
And here are we
At the center of it all
Slow burn
Slow burn
Slow burn
Afraid
03:28
I wish I was smarter
I got so lost on the shore
I wish I was taller
Things really matter to me

But I put my face in tomorrow
I believe we're not alone
I believe in The Beatles
I believe my little soul has grown

And I'm still so afraid
Yes, I'm still so afraid
Yeah, I'm still so afraid
On my own
On my own

What made my life so wonderful
What made me feel so bad
I used to wake up the ocean
I used to walk on clouds

If I put faith in medication
If I can smile a crooked smile
If I can talk on television
If I can walk an empty mile

Then I won't feel afraid
No, I won't feel afraid
I won't be, be afraid
Anymore
Anymore
And then I just won't be afraid
Anymore
And then I just won't be afraid
I've Been Waiting for You
03:00
Also available on:
I've been looking for a woman
To save my life
Not to beg or to borrow

A woman with the feeling
Of losing once or twice
Who knows how it could be, be tomorrow

I've been waiting for you
And you've been coming to me
For such a long time now
For such a long time now

A woman with the feeling
Of losing once or twice
Who knows how it could be, be tomorrow

I've been waiting for you
And you've been coming to me
For such a long time now
For such a long time now
For such a long time now
For such a long time now
I Would Be Your Slave
05:14
Walking in the snowy stream
Let me understand
Drifting down a silent path
Stumbling over land
Open up your heart to me
Show me who you are
And I would be your slave

Do you sleep in quietude
Do you walk in peace
Do you laugh out loud at me
No one else is free
Open up your heart to me
Show me all you are
And I would be your slave

I don't sit and wait
I don't give a damn
I don't see the point at all
No footprints in the sand

I bet you laugh out loud at me
A chance to strike me down
Give me peace of mind at last
Show me all you are
Open up your heart to me
I will be your slave

I don't sit around and wait
I don't give a damn
I don't see the point at all
No footprints in the sand

I will give you all my love
Nothing else is free
Open up your heart to me
I would be your slave
I Took a Trip on a Gemini Spaceship
04:07
I took a trip on a Gemini spacecraft
And I thought about you
I passed through the shadow of Jupiter
And I thought about you
I shot my spacegun
And boy, I really felt blue

Two or three flying saucers
Parked under the stars
The winding stream
Moon shining down
On some little town
And with each beam
The same old dream

I took a trip on a Gemini spacecraft
And I thought about you
I shot my spacegun
And I thought about you
I pulled down my sun visor
Boy, I really felt blue

You jumped into your Gemini
I jumped into mine
We'll orbit the moon
For just one time
Tomorrow night
Tomorrow night
Will you hold hands
With me in the moonlight

I took a trip in a Gemini spacecraft
And I thought about you
I shot my spacegun
And I thought about you
I took, I took a walk in space
Boy, I really felt blue

Well, I peeked through the crack
And I looked way back
The stardust trail
Leading back to you
What did I do
What could I do
Yes what did I do

Well
I thought about you
I thought about you
Took a trip on a Gemini spacecraft
Thought about you
5:15 The Angels Have Gone
05:02
5:15
I'm changing trains
This little town let me down
This foreign rain brings me down
5:15
Train overdue
Angels have gone
No ticket
I'm jumping tracks
I'm changing time

We never talk anymore
Forever I will adore only you

5:15
All of my life
Angels have gone
I'm changing trains
Angels like them thin on the ground
All of my life
All legs and wings
Swings turn the eyes
5:15
Train overdue
Angels have gone

We never talk anymore
Forever I will adore only you
Cold station all of my life
Forever I fear, forever
Everyone Says 'Hi'
03:58
Said you took a big trip
They said you moved away
Happened oh so quietly
They say

Should've took a picture
Something I could keep
Buy a little frame
Something cheap
For you

Everyone says 'Hi'

Said you sailed a big ship
Said you sailed away
Didn't know the right thing
To say

I'd love to get a letter
Like to know what's what
Hope the weather's good
And it's not too hot
For you

Everyone says 'Hi'
Everyone says 'Hi'
Everyone says

Don't stay in a sad place
Where they don't care how you are

Everyone says 'Hi'

If the money is lousy
You can always come home
We can do the old things
We can do all the bad things
If the food gets you leery
You can always phone
We could do all the good things
We could do it, we could do it
we could do it
Don't stay in a bad place
Where they don't care how you are

Everyone says 'Hi'
Everyone says 'Hi'
Everyone says 'Hi'
And the girl next door
And the guy upstairs
Everyone says 'Hi'
And your mum and dad
Everyone says 'Hi'
And your big fat dog
Everyone says 'Hi'
Everyone says 'Hi'
A Better Future
04:11
Please, don't tear this world asunder
Please, take back this fear we're under
I demand a better future
Or I might just stop wanting you
I might just stop wanting you

Please, make sure we get tomorrow
All this pain, all this sorrow
I demand a better future
Or I might just stop needing you
I might just stop needing you

Give my children sunny smiles
Give them warm and cloudless skies
I demand a better future
Or I might just stop loving you
Loving you, loving you

When you talk
We talk too
When you walk
We walk too

From factory to field
How many tears must fall
Down there below
Nothing is moving

I might just stop wanting you
I might just stop needing you
I might just stop loving you

I demand a better future
I demand a better future
I demand a better future
For I might just stop loving you
Loving you, loving you

I demand a better future
I demand a better future
I demand a better future
Or I might just stop loving you
Loving you, loving you

I demand a better future
Heathen (The Rays)
04:17
Steel on the skyline
Sky made of glass
Made for a real world
All things must pass

Waiting for something
Looking for someone
Is there no reason
Have I stared too long

You say you'll leave me

And when the sun is low
And the rays high
I can see it now
I can feel it die
