    It's a fragile thing, this life we lead
    if I think too much I can get overwhelmed
    by the grace, by which we live our lives
    with death over our shoulders
     
  2. I've seen it all
    There is no more to see

    You haven't seen elephants
    Kings or Peru

    I'm happy to say
    I had better to do

    What about China?
    Have you seen the Great Wall?

    All walls are great
    If the roof doesn't fall

    You've never been
    To Niagara Falls

    I have seen water
    It's water, that's all

    The Eiffel Tower
    The Empire State

    My pulse was as high
    On my very first date

    Looking outside my window
    All I see is grey
    I'm watching the clouds roll by everyday
    And we make a reservation
    You say you'll be on time
    I say I might be a little late
    Well I get it together and brush my teeth
    Comb my hair
    I stop to think I can see you there
    Checking the clock inside
    The room we call our own
    I see that I'm late best get going
    Hop on a local transit
    Spending all my change
    The snow may well thaw out but it goes right down the drain
    Here comes the rain
    You left me standing

    Weeping? And why? And why? Ah, 'tis faith you are lacking Hear me One fine day we'll notice A thread of smoke arising on the sea In the far horizon And then the ship appearing Then the trim white vessel Glides into the harbour Thunders forth her cannon See you? Now he is coming I do not go to meet him Not I I stay upon the brow of the hillock And wait there And wait for a long time But never weary of the long waiting From out the crowded city There is coming a man A little speck in the distance Climbing the hillock Can you guess who it is? And when he's reached the summit Can you guess what he'll say? He will call, "Butterfly" from the distance I, without answering Hold myself quietly concealed A bit to tease him and a bit So as not to die at our first meeting And then, a little troubled He will call, he will call "Dear baby wife of mine, Dear little orange blossom" The names he used to call me when he came here This will all come to pass as I tell you Banish your idle fears For he will return Return



    This aria is so full of hope and ultimately so sad.
    If you are not an opera lover.. Butterfly gives up hope and kills herself only minuets before her lover returns.

    Left by the lamp, right next to the bed, on a cartoon cat pad you scratched with a pen, "Everything is as it has always been. This never happened.
    Don't take it so bad it is nothing you did. It's just once something dies you can't make it live. You are a beautiful boy.
    You're a sweet little kid but I am a woman." So I laid back down and wrapped myself up in the sheet.
    And I must have looked like a ghost because something frightened me and since then I've been so good at vanishing.

    on the day the wall came down, we threw our lock onto the ground and raised a cry for freedom had arrived..
     
  7. I would like to leave this city
    This old town don't smell too pretty and
    I can feel the warning signs running around my mind
    And when I leave this island I'll book myself into a soul asylum
    'Cause I can feel the warning signs running around my mind
    So here I go, I'm still scratching around in the same old hole
    My body feels young but my mind is very old
    So what do you say?
    You can't give me the dreams that are mine anyway
    Half the world away, half the world away
    Half the world away
     
  8. First off, fuck your bitch and the clique you claim

    The smokestack spit
    Black soot into the sunny sky
    The load on the road
    Brings a tear to the Indian's eye
    The elephant won't forget
    What it's like inside its cage
    The ringmaster's telecaster
    Sings on an empty stage

    I used to wake and run with the moon
    I lived like a rake and a young man
    I covered my lovers with flowers and wounds
    My laughter the devil would frighten
    The sun would come up but beat me back down
    But every cruel day had its night fall
    I'd welcome the stars with wine and guitars
    Full of fire and forgetful

    Well my body was sharp and the dark air clean
    And outrage my joyful companion
    Whisperin' women, how sweet they did seem
    Kneeling for me to command them
    And time was like water but I was the sea
    And I'd never notice it passing
    Except for the turning of night into day
    And the turning of day into cursing

    Well you look at me know and don't think I don't know
    What all of yerr eyes are a saying
    Does he want to believe all these ravings and lies
    Its just tricks that his brains been a playing
    A lover of women he can't hardly stand
    He trembles he's bent and he's broken
    I've fallen it's true but I say unto you
    Hold your tongues until after I've spoken
    I was takin' my pride in the pleasures I'd known
    I laughed and thought I'd be forgiven
    But my laughter turned 'round eyes blazing and
    Said my friend, we're holdin' a wedding
    I buried my face but it spoke once again
    Its the night to the day we're a bindin'
    And now the dark air is like fire on my skin
    And even the moonlight is blinding

    I see a doorway in the haze
    And I'm tryin' to get to it
    The stars are peep holes in a wall
    But we can walk thru it
    The memory's still so real
    The memory's still so real
    I guess it's never really over
    Even when it's over
    I'm vibrating with love and light
    Pulsating with love and light
    In a world gone mad a world gone mad
    There must be something more than this

    Early one mornin' the sun was shinin'
    I was layin' in bed
    Wondrin' if she'd changed at all
    If her hair was still red
    Her folks they said our lives together
    Sure was gonna be rough
    They never did like
    Mama's homemade dress
    Papa's bank book wasn't big enough
    And I was standin' on the side of the road
    Rain fallin' on my shoes
    Heading out for the east coast
    Lord knows I've paid some dues
    Gettin' through
    Tangled up in blue
    She was married when we first met
    Soon to be divorced
    I helped her out of a jam I guess
    But I used a little too much force
    We drove that car as far as we could
    Abandoned it out west
    Split up on a dark sad night
    Both agreeing it was best
    She turned around to look at me
    As I was walkin' away
    I heard her say over my shoulder
    We'll meet again some day
    On the avenue
    Tangled up in blue
    I had a job in the great north woods
    Working as a cook for a spell
    But I never did like it all that much
    And one day the axe just fell
    So I drifted down to New Orleans
    Where I was looking for to be employed
    Workin' for a while on a fishin' boat
    Right outside of Delacroix
    But all the while I was alone
    The past was close behind
    I seen a lot of women
    But she never escaped my mind
    And I just grew
    Tangled up in blue
    She was workin' in a topless place
    And I stopped in for a beer
    I just kept lookin' at the side of her face
    In the spotlight so clear
    And later on as the crowd thinned out
    I's just about to do the same
    She was standing there in back of my chair
    Said to me, Don't I know your name?
    I muttered somethin' under my breath
    She studied the lines on my face
    I must admit I felt a little uneasy
    When she bent down to tie the laces
    Of my shoe
    Tangled up in blue
    She lit a burner on the stove
    And offered me a pipe
    I thought you'd never say hello, she said
    You look like the silent type
    Then she opened up a book of poems
    And handed it to me
    Written by an Italian poet
    From the thirteenth century
    And everyone of them words rang true
    And glowed like burnin' coal
    Pourin' off of every page
    Like it was written in my soul
    From me to you
    Tangled up in blue
    I lived with them on Montague Street
    In a basement down the stairs
    There was music in the caf├ęs at night
    And revolution in the air
    Then he started into dealing with slaves
    And something inside of him died
    She had to sell everything she owned
    And froze up inside
    And when finally the bottom fell out
    I became withdrawn
    The only thing I knew how to do
    Was to keep on keepin' on
    Like a bird that flew
    Tangled up in blue
    So now I'm goin' back again
    I got to get to her somehow
    All the people we used to know
    They're an illusion to me now
    Some are mathematicians
    Some are carpenters' wives
    Don't know how it all got started
    I don't know what they're doin' with their lives
    But me, I'm still on the road
    Headin' for another joint
    We always did feel the same
    We just saw it from a different point of view
    Tangled up in blue

    Doe hell yeah I got some red on my neck
    And you can bet good whiskey Irms as real as it gets
    She got a big white truck that waves a big rebel flag
    And the redneck nation that got her back
    I kill a couple of bucks and cook my own shine
    You know we wearing Grey all down <--- my bloodline
    I'm a legend in the woods that's where I stay
    A keep out sign hung up on my front gate
    I got a 22 rifle by the hog pens
    And yeah I spit without my dip in
    got some blood on my boots from a kill last year
    And a good long knife from the horns of that deer
    I'm a backward balla, the writings on the water
    You can find me pines getting drunk in my hauler
    I'm a redneck daughter that's the way of life
    I'm living good in the country and yeah it's feels right
     
  16. I am the storm and I am the wonder
    And the flashlights, nightmares
    And sudden explosions

    I don't know what more to ask for
    I was given just one wish

    It's about you and the sun
    A morning run
    The story of my maker
    What I have and what I ache for

    I've got a golden ear
    I cut and I spear
    What else is there?

    There are places I'll remember all my life, - though some have changed
    Some forever, not for better - some have gone and some remain
    All these places have their moments, with lovers and friends I still can recall, some are dead and some are living
    - - In my life, I've loved them all

    But of all these friends and lovers - There is no one compares with you
    And these memories lose their meaning - When I think of love as something new
    Though I know I'll never lose affection, For people and things that went before, I know I'll often stop and think about them
    - - In my life, I love you more

    Though I know I'll never lose affection - For people and things that went before
    I know I'll often stop and think about them
    - - In my life, I love you more (In my life-- I love you more)

    You're my discretional sin
    I feel you on me when I touch my skin
    You've got me hooked and you're reeling me in
    And I look in your eyes, I'm on the edge

    As you walk alone the night surrounds you like a shroud
    The dreams you had were once of love and being proud
    Misty horizons block your vision of the world
    But the raven's eyes will show you all you need to know

    The land you loved is now so barren and so cold
    The name of God rings out so high in your soul
    This time the masters will lead us by the sword
    And should we fail, then all prevails in Odin's court

    Leading us on, to the land of eternity
    Riding the cold, cold winds...

    ...of Valhalla

    The Kingdom of Odin is the Kingdom of Gods
    Where only souls of the brave may rest in peace
    But someone among them had the skill of deceit
    And raised the hand that would open the road to Hell


    When the winds of Valhalla run cold
    Be sure that the blood will start to flow
    When the winds of Valhalla run cold
    Valhalla

    The ring has been broken and a soul must be saved
    Among the bravest of men, who rides to Hell
    The longships are sailing and the chariots ride
    And yes the anger of Thor will serve you well

    When the winds of Valhalla run cold
    Be sure that the blood will start to flow
    When the winds of Valhalla run cold
    Valhalla

    Raise your hands
    Reach and Valhalla will save your soul
    Raise your eyes
    And Odin will lead us on

    They say that history repeats itself
    Upon the year of the seventh Century
    Well nobody knows no you never can tell
    So you'd better run now and hide away

    And in those frozen moments won
    From grief that creeps to wreath the sun
    In drapes enwove with deathshead wing
    *whispers*
    I thank God for the suffering.
