Jason Waste Lyrics

Artist : SWAY
Album : The Signature LP
Hi my name is Jason and I'm not gay

{People are so damn crazy up in Jason's world}

People call me a waste man, 'cause I haven't got a job (what a knob)

{He don't wanna get out of bed}

Bed, up, make tea, shower, eat,
Paste, wee, change, go, make teas,
Alarm, snooze back to sleep

All of my little brothers, always call me a waste man
{Waste man, waste man}
Because I'm 27, and I'm living down in the basement
{Waste man}
I'm so complacent, so I will stay here
They're banging on my door, but I won't chase 'em
Cause I'm so lazy, the last few days I
Haven't seen daylight, haven't shaved
And they can say what they like, they just hate me
Cause I never let 'em have a go on my PlayStation (piss off)

They said I'm fat I need to go to the gym
I don't wanna be fat, I wanna be slim
Did a minute on the treadmill went for a swim
Little kids jumped out soon as I jumped in
Now I'm in the changing room

Hi my name is Jason and I'm not gay
I'm looking at your thing but it's not what you think
I'm think to myself why is mine not as big
So I think dirty thoughts so I can get it bigger
Beyonce, look at me now I'm a killer
I said I'm not gay go away stop wishing
I just wanted a bit of stiff competition

{Erm, sorry Jason}
What, what do you want?
{We've just had a complaint}
Piss off
{From a very valued client}
I said piss off
{Sadly resulting in us revoking your membership}
Shut up I don't care
This is a crap gym
{Well, mate, just leave, please}
It doesn't work, how do I know it works
I'm still fat, why am I still fat
{Just go, please}
It's a shit gym
Sod off

I got a baby mum and a lovely little son
Lovely boy but his is mum is very very dumb
I was very very drunk, I told her lot of secrets
Very very drunk, I told her not to keep it
Anyway she had it, sorry had him, Darren
His grandmother Karen, wanted to call him Gavin
But I didn't have it, I was working at Maplin
Gavin was my manager and I wanted to slap him
'Cause he wanted to sack me, 'cause I wanted to stab him
'Cause my girl liked him and she wanted to shag him
He's a bit bigger, but I know I could have him
As a matter of fact he kinda looks like Darren
I still got sacked and this is how it happened

Some Nigerian guy called Tunde
Who told me to call him Thomas for short
Walked into the store, said he wanted to talk
At first I wasn't sure, but because he was nice, to me
And he kinda showed me his nine
He brought a lot of stuff and he told me to swine
But this is a woman's car
{Shut up it's for my wife)
He would come in like every fortnight
And buy the same iPod 4 times
Apparently he was doing the same thing with Tariq
Who told the police my name when it happened (It was Jason)

{Hello Jason}
What?
{We're from the Metropolitan Police fraud department)
Police!
{We'd like ask you a few...}
Oink oink!
{Excuse me?}
Oink, you're a pig
{Excuse me?!}
Listen go away man, I don't wanna get arrested
I wanna rest, I wanna sleep
{Look, you're coming with me}
All my little brothers smoke weed
{Oh my goodness}
Come and arrest them, or they'll do murder

Bed
I can sleep till the world ends
And I ain't in a rush for a girlfriend
All I ever do is fail them
'Cause all I ever do is tell them the true
If you're fat you're fat, bitch, ain't nothing wrong with that
Don't switch I'm, just telling you a fact
Do you think you're thin?
{Well no}
Well then
{I hate you!}
I abuse most of them
I think that's how I lose most of them
I don't want to get too close to them
After what happened to Elton in school
Elton was cool
But he had a girlfriend that didn't want to do things he wanted to
Do
{I said no!}
She said no but he went ahead and felt her
{Get off me!}
I think he's just coming out of Feltham

My last girl was a wannabe WAG
{Hi!}
Who went everywhere in a cab
I told her I'm rich
She took me to Harrod
And picked up this Gucci worth a grand
I went quiet like words from my gran
'Cause that's too much to spend on a slag
I mean that's too much to spend on a bag
As soon as we got to the till, I ran
{Where you going?!}

Then my mobile rang
{'Ello? }
It was my first love, Ann
{Hi Jason}
She said she split up with her man
{He's gone}
And she's in need of a bang
{Come round}
I said I'll be on a bus in a minute
She said "you better not bust in a minute"
I got prang and rushed to the chemist
Excuse me, have you got anything for men that ejaculate premature?
{Oh yes}
He took me to the back of the store
He gave me a spray, what's this for?
{Put a little on the top just before}

Got to her house, clock says 4
She's worn out, I'm wanting more
'Cause she's sore she went down south
And I think she's saying she can't feel her mouth
Oi, Anna, speak loud
Are you saying you can't feel your mouth?
{Mm mm mm!}
Are you saying where is this mouse?
What, you want me to take your couch?
Look if you want to kiss me, out
That's when she kicked me, ouch
I think she's trying to kick me out
Just tell me if you wanna get me out
I'm gone

Pray 4 Kaya Lyrics

Artist : SWAY
Album : The Signature LP
As far as girls go she was my best friend, I go to pick her up but she ain't dressed yet.
I told her that I've cancelled so she ain't prepped yet.
Just so I could surprise you,
Never forget get.
Three days before it happened, we're in the West End.
We're bout to catch a movie, after we just eat.
See we would talk for hours, it's like we just met.
We had a thing before, but now we're just friends.
I told her everything,
She showed me everything,
She told me anything,
I would give anything.
Just to see her smile at me, or just to see her smile at least,
Wake up from her sleep and I expect to see her whine at me.
Because I wasn't there, to tell her not to go into that car that day,
And end up on the road, where that car would crash, but she never lost her soul.
She's in a coma hanging on but she don't wanna go, cause she's a star out here, and yeah she's on a role.
Everybody's praying for her, she ain't on her own.
I just wish that I coulda called her on the phone that day and caused her not to go that day,
And I just wanna know why god would make them, when he knew that he would take 'em young.
Four girls, one died on the scene, her name was patience.
And the rest of them were patient, had everybody pacing up and down the hospital hallways, praying and saying god don't you take them please.

I don't wanna leave, but they won't let me stay.
I wish I had the powers, to take the pain away.
Wipe away the tears, and take the rain away.
Wanna be together forever so I get down and pray.
I don't wanna leave, but they won't let me stay.
I wish I had the powers, to take the pain away.
Wipe away the tears, and take the rain away.
Wanna be together forever so I get down and pray.

The next day, a second girl passes away and her face is pasted all over the myspaces to make it worse.
I didn't know her, but I know her name was D-Crystal.
I know your family miss you, and I can't say the words
To describe this whole scenario, how to say it hurts, is an understatement.
Yeah I'm trying to pray but will the prayers work.
Because we prayed for puff, but god still took him.
But I'm a keep on praying, cause gods still looking.

And Kaya's still sleeping, I wanna wake her up.
But gods still peeping he wants to take her up.
One of the few girls I know that really ain't corrupt,
She called her self the queen of clubs, I call her the queen of hearts.
Tryna reassure her friends, but deep inside my heart would brace.
Don't wanna ask her sister questions or look into her fathers face.
Because I knew there could be news that would be hard to take.
After days of hanging on, sadly Kaya past away.

I don't wanna leave, but they won't let me stay.
I wish I had the powers, to take the pain away.
Wipe away the tears, and take the rain away.
Wanna be together forever so I get down and pray.
I don't wanna leave, but they won't let me stay.
I wish I had the powers, to take the pain away.
Wipe away the tears, and take the rain away.
Wanna be together forever so I get down and pray.

If you got a bit of fire in you, listen.
That means you've got a bit of Kaya in you.
You need to use it to search for something for something higher in you.
And you need to realise there's something higher then you.
If you aim for the stars, they'll start admiring you.
And life's to short to live without the fighter in you.
Prayer moves mountains, so hold up your hands.
Prayer can change your life, but not gods plans.

So I don't wanna leave, but they won't let me stay.
I wish I had the powers, to take the pain away.
Wipe away the tears, and take the rain away.
Wanna be together forever so I get down and pray.

Cause I don't wanna leave, but they won't let me stay.
I really wanna breath but any day could be the day.
When it's your time to go, it's your time to go.
So live your life like you know,
Get on your knees and pray.

Taxi Lyrics

Artist : SWAY
Album : The Signature LP
Sexy girls all around let's get together to the dj sounds
I love the girls in this crazy town, drinks and other things going down

Don't do drugs, drugs are bad. that's the talk from moms and dad.
Like they never done drugs b4.I done a couple now I'm on the floor
Somebody please hospital, where's my friends I think I lost em all
I'm effed. I think I'm gonna leave.
Don't drink and drive speed kills, just spent my last money on speed pills
Walked into the loo saw 3 girls. I forgot my glasses I can't read well
I'm messed, I think I'm gonna leave.

I'm lean. I'm drunk. please don't try take me for no punk
If you try take me for a punk, u will learn the meaning of (come again) [x2]
Somebody get me a taxi. somebody get me a cab.
Somebody get me a taxi. I wanna go home, I got work in the morning

Sexy girls all around let's get together to the dj sounds
I love the girls in this crazy town, drinks and other things going down

They say age is nothing a number but I think that that's pretty dumb
Because if age is nothing but a number how come I couldn't get into the club
When I was sixteen, they showed no love.
When I was 18 they still didn't like me
Now I'm 21, still show no love, unless I show them some I.d
Now I'm in the club and the whole scene's lively
Plus going home with a girl, quite likely
And I don't give a toss about the VIP
Cause the best part is going on inside me
Sound at the baseline so excite me
I get so hyped everybody wanna fight me
One last drink will go down nicely
Then I'll leave if I could find my keys.

I'm lean. I'm drunk. please don't try take me for no punk
If you try take me for a punk, u will learn the meaning of (come again) [x2]
Somebody get me a taxi. somebody get me a cab.
Somebody get me a taxi. I wanna go home, I got work in the morning

Sexy girls all around let's get together to the dj sounds
I love the girls in this crazy town, drinks and other things going down

I'm lean. I'm drunk. please don't try take me for no punk
If you try take me for a punk, u will learn the meaning of (come again) [x2]
Somebody get me a taxi (sexy girls all around let's get together to the dj sounds
I love the girls in this crazy town, drinks and other things going down). somebody get me a cab.
Somebody get me a taxi. (sexy girls all around let's get together to the dj sounds
I love the girls in this crazy town, drinks and other things going down) I wanna go home, I got work in the morning.

My Kind Of Girl Lyrics

Artist : SWAY
Album : The Signature LP
Say you're my kind of girl
Because you're very lovely, because you're very holy
Place no one above you
You're the one that hynoptize me
Got me feeling iray
I think about you all day

She got an African mum, an African dad
But they never let her out
They want her to be bad
They tell her to go to classes
And straight after classes, they tell her to be back

Cause if her daddy ever catches us, it's gonna be a wrap
And I ain't talking about what I'm doing on the track

They want her with a lawyer or anyone who has a suit
Like a doctor, or diplomat, and it's true

Say you're my kind of girl
Because you're very lovely, because you're very holy
Place no one above you
You're the one that hynoptize me
Got me feeling iray
I think about you all day

Level Up Lyrics

Artist : SWAY
Album : The Deliverance
We level up, up, up, up, we level up
Yeah, we level up
We gonna climb up the levels, go harder
Like splash every time we go past
I'll never loose the game, I'm gonna last
So let's start, we level up

All over the radio and back up in the raves again
We got the crowd on the wave like it's a stadium
Call me the weather man it's about to be a break weekend
I'm on the cloud, let's make it rain again
Yeah, we level up
Life's but nothing, shirts and dressed looking saucy
Living in our minuses, cause life begins at 40 level up
Call me Bond, James Bond
How I maintain, I tell them winter stays on
My brain racing like I'm trying to win the gold for Britain, yes!
I'm an one track man, let's go the distance
We're only stopping when we pose for pictures
And now we move so wavy, we get motion sickness

Yeah, we level up
We gonna climb up the levels, go harder
Like splash every time we go past
I'll never loose the game, I'm gonna last
So let's start, we level up

Feeling like a just won the lotto
Pop a bottle and I make them say A
Like I'm your dentist
Keys to the sweet, you can call me Alan Sugar
Well we're firing tonight, and I might need an apprentice
Reunion, old school and uni friends
It's your excuse to act like hooligans
Bend and break the rules again
Parties just getting started at 2 am
Waking up at noon next to
Who are you again?

Looking in the mirror and I feel like I'm famous
I got that glimmer in my eye like I ain't afraid of danger
Today could be the day that everything changes
I'm trying to move up to the hills where idols become neighbors
One moment, your whole world rearranges
You feeling like you graduating Oxford or Cambridge
Forever roll the dice and have it looking like Vegas
You win some you loose some, but only winners take risks

I start getting calls I've been waiting on for ages
Phone starts popping and I'm gossiping with strangers
In and out a lot and I'm out getting wasted
All of these flashing lights popping out in places
Always forgetting names, especially with neighbors
Names ladies
What's your name again
My house, like talk
Wake up in the tea, saying touch me I'm famous
Hey stranger, where you been? Long time no see
Time to level up
I'm in the game, play to win
Another round on me

Yeah, we level up
We gonna climb up the levels, go harder
Like splash every time we go past
I'll never loose the game, I'm gonna last
So let's start, we level up

Still Speedin' Lyrics

Artist : SWAY
Album : The Deliverance
Walk right in, walk right in
Walk right in, walk right in
Walk right in, walk right in
Walk right in

Still speedin'

I was telling everybody up your speed
That was a couple of years ago
And now I'm reving up for deliverance
Switching up gears, got a couple of years to go
(Super swah!)
Here we go! as soon as you hear that, go!
Liverpool to portsmouth, yeah,
That chorus got the crowd screaming

Ooooh oh, ooooh oh!
Ooooh oh, ooooh oh!
I got the people screaming
Ooooh oh, ooooh oh!
Ooooh oh, ooooh oh!
(Still speedin')

Click, click, hear the strap
Seat belt derek's back!
Time to blow like dynamo
No more disappearing act,
I know you miss me, I miss you too!
Sometimes that's what a mist will do
Like taio I was cruising
Now it's time to take my steering back
One of the best to ever do it
(They say!)
A testament to this game
(They say!)
And even in the wind I never blew it
(They say!)
I swayed but kept in my lane
They call me fleetwood mac
I'm a with a mac with a fleet
Still getting royalties
No spoiler but I spoil me!
I got the crowd screaming

Ooooh oh, ooooh oh!
Ooooh oh, ooooh oh!
I got the people screaming
Ooooh oh, ooooh oh!
Ooooh oh, ooooh oh!
Still speeding!
Ooooh oh, ooooh oh!
Ooooh oh, ooooh oh!
Ooooh oh, ooooh oh!
Make some noise!

Still speedin'

See the way I'm riding
Cameras can flash
Pretty lady by my side
Lewis hamilton of rap!
(Sway, sway!)
Foot down, moving mammoth on the track
And I don't need no gps
To see my manor on the map!
Still representing my flag
And I've been all over the world, I've done that
And I've got the whole crowd raising the roof
I'm nigel mansell so better take of hats!
Sticks to the flats, turn the bass up max
People in the rave better raise your hands
Let me hear you make some noise!

Take my love!

They try to give me a ticket
But I ripped it like a raffle
Tell them people I am mr. dereck safro
I'm still speeding!
Pedal to the metal on a level I ain't gonna settle
For anything less than gold I ain't gonna meddle around about
And up down and tryna build since I was like a kid
But never had the lego
Running through the fields and the medals of ally pali
And now I'm a hill, geppetto was able to make a fake boy real!
I can definitely make a real boy hard as steel!
I ain't gonna stop until I do a couple of millions
I gave them my demo, now it's time to deal again!
I'm back up on the bill again
I'm fresh from the bank,
Bob's your uncle!
Mines uncle phil again
Because I've got the will power and the potential
And I got the credentials
All of the essentials when it gets stressful
My bp rises but I'm never gonna stop
Unless I need to get petrol!
(Swah!)
Still speedin'

Don't Walk Away Eileen Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : The Inhuman Condition
Don't walk away Eileen!
I've been living for you since the age of seventeen
Don't walk away Eileen!
You've been telling lies and now it's time to come clean

Hey! You come around and I
Hey! You come around and I
Hey! You come around and I can't keep time
Hey! You turn around and I
Hey! You turn around and I
Hey! You turn around and I'm left behind

Eileen says I'm a boy, not a man
Crying on the corner with my head and my hands
I called her name and she ran
Slipping through my fingers like a fist full of sand

Hey! You come around and I
Hey! You come around and I
Hey! You come around and I lose my head
Hey! You turn around and I
Hey! You turn around and I
Hey! You turn around and I'm left for dead

And she reads my mind when I'm sleeping
And she always arrives when I'm leaving
Yeah, she's blocking out the sun it seems
You're a pacifist with a gun, Eileen

Hey! You come around and I
Hey! You come around and I
Hey! You come around and I can't keep time
Hey! You turn around and I
Hey! You turn around and I
Hey! You turn around and I'm left behind

Hey! You come around and I
Hey! You come around and I
Hey! You come around and I lose my head
Hey! You turn around and I
Hey! You turn around and I
Hey! You turn around and I'm left for dead

Don't walk away Eileen!
Don't walk away Eileen!
Don't walk away Eileen!

Brother Down Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : The Inhuman Condition
One life to live but we're doing it wrong
You see, got my brother down cause it's nothing to me
Everyone's saying that it's wrong to cheat
But there's no other way to get my life on easy street

Someone else telling you what you're living for
Been knocking you down, now you're looking for more
The only sound you hear is a closing door
Been looking for peace but they're bringing you war
Rich man's crying cause his money's time
And poor man's smiling cause he knows he ain't blind
There's a man over there says he's tougher than me
But i got eyes that can see through fantasy

I think my life is passing me by
I think my life is passing me by

Take it all back cause it don't mean nothing
If you give it away and you're looking for something back
Wake up every morning when there's nothing there
No reason to die but no reason to care

Someone else telling you what you're living for
Been knocking you down now you're looking for more
The only sound you hear is a closing door
Been looking for peace but they're bringing you war
One life to live but we're doing it wrong
You see, got my brother down cause it's nothing to me
Rich man's crying cause his money's time
Poor man's smiling cause he knows he ain't blind

I think my life is passing me by
I think my life is passing me by

Album : The Inhuman Condition
Oh the Milky Way has gone a little sour
The leaves dried and the flower fell away
I've been sitting, I've been waiting for a sign
Inhuman beings taking up all of my time
Want to leave but I've got to stay
And I'm wondering more everyday
Montreal to Hong Kong
Where have all the good people gone?
Traffic jam but I'm on the shoulder
Took ten cops to pull me over
Bangkok to Babylon
Where have all the good people gone?
I haven't met a friend in a long long while
They don't check my head but they check my style
The modern world is a cold cold world
And all I meet are cold cold girls
Wanna leave but I got to stay
And I'm wondering more every day
Montreal to Hong Kong
Where have all the good people gone?
Traffic jam but I'm on the shoulder
Took ten cops to pull me over
Bangkok to Babylon
Where have all the good people gone?
And it's always the same
We all just turn away
We are stealing from ourselves
We are feeding off ourselves
But we were born in the flames
We need a cool breeze and a summer rain
We are stealing from ourselves
We are feeding off ourselves
Oh the Milky Way has gone a little sour
The leaves dried and the flower fell away
Want to leave but I've got to stay
And I'm wondering more everyday
Montreal to Hong Kong
Where have all the good people gone?
Traffic jam but I'm on the shoulder
Took ten cops to pull me over
Bangkok to Babylon
Where have all the good people gone?
Time's up and we're running long
Where have all the good people gone?

When Everything Was Alright Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : The Inhuman Condition
There goes my mind
There goes my mind
And it's the same mistake I've made so many times
that my own mother thinks I'm blind
You can't be true
You can't be true
And I'm spendin' all my money making sure
that things are going right for you

Startin' all over to the time when everything was alright
When everything was alright
To the time when everything was alright
To the time when everything was alright

You got no love
You got no love
And don't come cryin' home, girl
when you realize that you ain't got no love
I'm comin' down, I'm comin' down
And I'm paranoid of everything
Yeah, girl you got me livin' underground

Startin' all over to the time when everything was alright
When everything was alright
To the time when everything was alright
To the time when everything was alright

My jaundice went away in 1997
They said your liver's fine now
but you're never goin' to heaven
cause of what you done
cause of what you done,
I said listen son, it's cause of what you done!
Yeah!

Startin' all over back then when everything was alright
When everything was alright
When everything was alright
To the time when everything was alright
To the time when everything was alright

This Is How I Live Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : The Inhuman Condition
Met a girl on a farm we started carrying on, late at night she
said honey - won't you stay? I said baby that just ain't the
way I live Uh Huh!

I had this girl in the south she said you got a big mouth, and
that ain't right Well I'm no saint, but I ain't bad I'm too busy
baby just loving the life I have Oh Yeah!

And I'd stay but I got to move on I ride the wind and I'm gone

Oh, I'm ready to go I got 19 women on my mind I got 6 lives
left 'cause I've already died 3 times but I'm fine

I heard a knock at the door It was a quarter to four I heard
fee fi fo, fo-fo-fum I'm young, dumb and ready to come alive
My My!

And I'd stay but I got to move on I ride the wind and I'm gone
Oh, this is how I live Oh, I got nothing to give

I took a seat at the bar You know I wouldn't be far Some
people came and then they went But I ain't leaving till my
money is spent Oh No!

And I'd stay but I gotta move on
I ride the wind and I'm gone I ride the wind and I'm gone

And I'd stay but I gotta move on
I ride the wind and I'm gone I ride the wind and I'm gone
Oh yeh! yeh! yeh!
I ride the wind and I'm gone I ride the wind and I'm gooooone
No way! Mother fucker!

Hard Road Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : We Were Born In A Flame
Feel, feel it grow
In your mind, in your mind
Life is how you live it
Through time, through time

And there's no desert sun that is hot enough to feed your fire
We shipwreck like fools only to become the ocean's choir
And the sun dies until it's reborn
But there's no road that ain't a hard road to travel on

Got lost on the way, but you found the road again
Stay true to your friends, 'cause they'll save you in the end

There must be something in the air, in the air
Some kind of answer to my prayers, to my prayers
Some kind of answer to my prayers
Been dying since the day I was born
'Cause there's no road that ain't a hard road to travel on

I have a vision in my mind of a life that I've left behind
Yeah, can't you see that lost souls can't swim
You know you'll sink, but you still jump in
And it's alright to get caught stealing back what you've lost
Yeah, don't you know that lost souls can't swim
You beat them back, but they drag you in
And I can't say that I am sorry for all my many sins

And you try to find the love that'll see you through your darkest days
And her soft brown hair is as long as a Canadian highway
And the sun dies until it's reborn
But there's no road that ain't a hard road to travel on

Been dying since the day I was born
'Cause there's no road that ain't a hard road to travel on

There must be something in the air, in the air
(repeat)

Where Have All The Good People Gone Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : We Were Born In A Flame
Oh the Milky Way has gone a little sour
The leaves dried and the flower fell away
I've been sitting, I've been waiting for a sign
Inhuman beings taking up all of my time
Want to leave but I've got to stay
And I'm wondering more everyday
Montreal to Hong Kong
Where have all the good people gone?
Traffic jam but I'm on the shoulder
Took ten cops to pull me over
Bangkok to Babylon
Where have all the good people gone?
I haven't met a friend in a long long while
They don't check my head but they check my style
The modern world is a cold cold world
And all I meet are cold cold girls
Wanna leave but I got to stay
And I'm wondering more every day
Montreal to Hong Kong
Where have all the good people gone?
Traffic jam but I'm on the shoulder
Took ten cops to pull me over
Bangkok to Babylon
Where have all the good people gone?
And it's always the same
We all just turn away
We are stealing from ourselves
We are feeding off ourselves
But we were born in the flames
We need a cool breeze and a summer rain
We are stealing from ourselves
We are feeding off ourselves
Oh the Milky Way has gone a little sour
The leaves dried and the flower fell away
Want to leave but I've got to stay
And I'm wondering more everyday
Montreal to Hong Kong
Where have all the good people gone?
Traffic jam but I'm on the shoulder
Took ten cops to pull me over
Bangkok to Babylon
Where have all the good people gone?
Time's up and we're running long
Where have all the good people gone?

Brother Down Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : We Were Born In A Flame
One life to live but we're doing it wrong
You see, got my brother down cause it's nothing to me
Everyone's saying that it's wrong to cheat
But there's no other way to get my life on easy street

Someone else telling you what you're living for
Been knocking you down, now you're looking for more
The only sound you hear is a closing door
Been looking for peace but they're bringing you war
Rich man's crying cause his money's time
And poor man's smiling cause he knows he ain't blind
There's a man over there says he's tougher than me
But i got eyes that can see through fantasy

I think my life is passing me by
I think my life is passing me by

Take it all back cause it don't mean nothing
If you give it away and you're looking for something back
Wake up every morning when there's nothing there
No reason to die but no reason to care

Someone else telling you what you're living for
Been knocking you down now you're looking for more
The only sound you hear is a closing door
Been looking for peace but they're bringing you war
One life to live but we're doing it wrong
You see, got my brother down cause it's nothing to me
Rich man's crying cause his money's time
Poor man's smiling cause he knows he ain't blind

I think my life is passing me by
I think my life is passing me by

Higher Learning Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : We Were Born In A Flame
I found myself on the road to Confusion
A dull mind and a weak constitution
I gave a ride to a medicine man
He had a glass eye and white light in his hand

Now
I wanna run through the green green grass
Shine a light on the shadows of the past
I wanna feel like a Siamese twin
Mass appeal with a solitude spin

Oh now oh now he stopped my world turning
Oh now oh now this is a higher learning
Oh and I bet that you don't even think about it
Do you now boy?

When they tell us that we couldn't live without it
Climbed up to the mountain snow,

And in the valley we was laid so low
We will rise like a phoenix from the ashes

Oh now Oh now this is a higher learning
Oh now Oh now my eyes are burning

Come to the light! Come to the light!
Put your mind in the hands of the medicine man
Time is a slippery fish now
Drink deep let your memory slip down
He says were living underground,
We've been asleep in a memory, dreaming
The spell was broken by the sound
The cut is deep but the wound is healing
We will rise like a Phoenix from the ashes
I will rise like a Phoenix from the ashes
He says he speaks to the monsoon rain
Drink deep and you'll feel no pain
I came to on a desolate avenue
My legs were weak but my mind full of fortitude

[Chorus]

Dead End Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : We Were Born In A Flame
Oh what's wrong with me
Said oh what's wrong with me
I know what I don't wanna be
A dead end on the family tree

And I just lost my virginity
To a girl who won't remember me at all
Took her out on a shopping spree
Happiness never happened for free

Could it be that I imagined things
I'm just sad instead of heartbroken
She came home but she's leaving again
She's coming back but she won't say when

[Chorus]

And I don't sing songs anymore
I don't feel young anymore
And it's hard to conceal
That these tears that I cry are for real
Any more

My pop said I should be like him
My mom says I can live with them
I had to ask my little brother to lend
Me change for the bus 'til I see him again

I'm getting drunk every day of the week
My ship sunk but it had no leak
A fortune teller on Bishop street
She read my hand and the future is bleak

I'm tired of sitting upon the fence
I've got no self confidence
Why don't I have a circle of friends
I'm so square they don't even pretend

[Chorus]

Don't give in
You can never let them win
But I get cold
I get cold
Every night, night, night,
Without a prayer in my heart, heart, heart

Oh what's wrong with me
Said oh Lord what's wrong with me
I know what I don't wanna be
A dead end on the family tree

And the train for my salvation
Is departing from the station
She don't feel like conversation
So I'm talking to myself
I got nobody else
I got my bottle of booze and my stale cigarettes
Down from the shelf

[Chorus]

Taj Mahal Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : We Were Born In A Flame
I'm Shah Jahan you're Taj Mahal
Do you remember that night at the Minah Bazaar
You were meant to be mine
You were meant to be mine

I saw fourteen children
In your lovely brown eyes
To be King and Queen
Was just a disguise
You were meant to be mine
You were meant to be mine

Keep on keep on keep on singing baby
Keep on keep on keep on singing baby
Keep on keep on keep on singing baby
Keep on keep on singing
Taj Mahal

Sitting with you on the banks of the Ganges
Stealing a kiss on the streets of Bombay
Caressing your hair like the wind through the palm trees
I never dreamed that anyone could take you away

Keep on keep on keep on singing baby
Keep on keep on keep on singing baby
Keep on keep on keep on singing baby
Keep on keep on singing
Taj Mahal

I'm building a beautiful statue
To make sure that no one forgets you
Yeah I'm building a beautiful statue
To make sure that no one forgets you
Yeah I'll make sure that no one forgets you
I'll make sure that no one forgets you
I'll make sure that no one forgets you
I'll make sure that no one forgets you
Taj Mahal Taj Mahal
Taj Mahal Taj Mahal

Every Part Of Me Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : We Were Born In A Flame
We
We were always on the run
From that old witch up the street
In the days when I was young

Ride
Ride our bikes on into town
For some hockey cards and whatever trouble may be found

I can never bring them back
But those days remain inside the very heart of me
My memories are white and black
But the song's the same
It plays in every part of me

Down
Down was only a direction
And sad
Sad was only on TV
And I had faith and I had protection

I can never bring them back
But those days remain inside the very heart of me
My memories are white and black
But the song's the same
It plays in every part of me

I still look back
The summer sun shining
A light was always shining on me
I was gone with the feel of her lips
On my very first kiss
And it seems so long since I left it all behind
In the back of my mind, in the back of my mind

Choking on cigarettes in the park
Chasing my old dog around the yard
Hanging out on the street until dark
And then it's time to go home

I can never bring them back
But those days remain inside the very heart of me
My memories are white and black
But the song's the same
It plays in every part of me
Snow was always falling down
And the sound remains inside the very heart of me
My mother waving from the porch
And the sight of it still plays in every part of me

I still look back
The summer sun shining
A light was always shining on me
I was gone with the feel of her lips
On my very first kiss
And it seems so long since I left it all behind
In the back of my mind, in the back of my mind

I still look back
The summer sun shining
A light was always shining on me
I was gone with the feel of her lips
On my very first kiss
And it seems so long since I left it all behind
In the back of my mind, in the back of my mind

The Canadian Dream Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : We Were Born In A Flame
I went out on the street today
The Canadian Dream was as far away as it's ever been
As it's ever been

S.O.C.I.A.L.I.S.M. is here to stay
S.O.C.I.A.L.I.S.M. is the only way

Frozen land, frozen minds
Frozen hands and frozen time

'Cause everything moves real slow when it's forty below
Everything moves real slow when it's forty below
Yeah, everything moves real slow when it's forty below
When it's forty below

S.O.C.I.A.L.I.S.M. is here to stay
S.O.C.I.A.L.I.S.M. is the only way

Rarefied Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : We Were Born In A Flame
The air tonight is rarefied
It's all I need, the air I breathe

You're buring all my bridges baby
Set your sights as low as they can go

You take up all my time little woman
You take up all my time
(My dreams tonight are sancifed)
You say your sun don't shine little honey,
You want a piece of mine
(They're all I need, they fill my sleep
The air is thin up here little darling,
The air is thin up here
But I won't shed no tears little sister
I won't shed no tears

you say you won't be a friend of mine
But you can't be my lover cause you take up all my time, yeah

The clock says five a.m. little honey
The clock says five a.m.
And you're just coming in little sister,
You're just coming in

Baby you got me on the run
But I'm just having too much fun
I feel your eyes each time we meet

Yea, you got me on the run
You got me hiding from the sun
You look so cold I get a chill

Baby baby you're so cruel
You got me breaking all the rules
You got me breaking all the rules

Don't Walk Away Eileen Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : We Were Born In A Flame
Don't walk away Eileen!
I've been living for you since the age of seventeen
Don't walk away Eileen!
You've been telling lies and now it's time to come clean

Hey! You come around and I
Hey! You come around and I
Hey! You come around and I can't keep time
Hey! You turn around and I
Hey! You turn around and I
Hey! You turn around and I'm left behind

Eileen says I'm a boy, not a man
Crying on the corner with my head and my hands
I called her name and she ran
Slipping through my fingers like a fist full of sand

Hey! You come around and I
Hey! You come around and I
Hey! You come around and I lose my head
Hey! You turn around and I
Hey! You turn around and I
Hey! You turn around and I'm left for dead

And she reads my mind when I'm sleeping
And she always arrives when I'm leaving
Yeah, she's blocking out the sun it seems
You're a pacifist with a gun, Eileen

Hey! You come around and I
Hey! You come around and I
Hey! You come around and I can't keep time
Hey! You turn around and I
Hey! You turn around and I
Hey! You turn around and I'm left behind

Hey! You come around and I
Hey! You come around and I
Hey! You come around and I lose my head
Hey! You turn around and I
Hey! You turn around and I
Hey! You turn around and I'm left for dead

Don't walk away Eileen!
Don't walk away Eileen!
Don't walk away Eileen!

No Sleep Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : We Were Born In A Flame
No sleep
I haven't slept for a week
And I'm cold
Yeah I'm so cold
She's right
I should do something with my life
But I'm old, I'm old I'm getting old

Those eyes
She said they don't recognize me
Those lips
They're never calling my name

It feels so heavy
It feels so heavy, heavy
I'm waiting for a saturday
I'm waiting for a saturday
And I'm too young to be old

Une fille jolie
Passait tout près de moi
Elle arrêtait le temps
Au coin de Sainte-Catherine et Saint-Laurent

It feels so heavy
It feels so heavy, heavy
I'm waiting for a saturday
I'm waiting for a saturday
And I'm too young to be old

Elle me regardait
Et elle souriait
Elle m'a fait penser à rien en ce moment
Mais comme le vent elle s'en allait
Et moi j'suis réveillé
Ouais moi j'suis reveillé

It feels so heavy
It feels so heavy, heavy
I'm waiting for a saturday
I'm waiting for a saturday
And I'm too young to be old

This Wreck Of A Life Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : We Were Born In A Flame
You know that bad luck will eat you up
When's it gonna end?
I twisted everything I could
Out of words
In real life my colours never blend

When I was a boy I said to myself
That I'd never lean on anyone else
Oh, but I was wrong
Yeah I was wrong
And my mother took me by the hands and then
Oh, oh how I prayed
That the good Lord would come and take me away
From this mess of a life that I'm in
And I fell to my knees oh and I cried
As the lightning rose up from the earth to the sky
In this wreck of a life that I'm in
In this mess of a life that I'm in

Come on you got a lot to give
A lot to live for
And hope it all gets better
You twisted everything you can out of anything
I know it's gonna get better

And I'm so sick and tired of lying around
We're all waiting for someone to light up this town
Oh, it won't be long
It won't be long
And I know I should have left town but I stayed

Oh how I prayed
That the good Lord would come and take me away
From this mess of a life that I'm in
And I fell to my knees oh and I cried
As the lightning rose up from the earth to the sky
In this wreck of a life that I'm in
In this mess of a life that I'm in

Oh and it feels like I'm writing a book and I can't get inspired
Sometimes
It seems that I'm breathing in smoke and my lungs are so tired
Oh well
I'll just sleep it all off and then hope that it don't get me fired
And I'm asking you please

Oh oh how I prayed
That the good Lord would come and take me away
From this mess of a life that I'm in
And I fell to my knees oh and I cried
As the lightning rose up from the earth to the sky
In this wreck of a life that I'm in
And oh how I prayed
That the good Lord would come and take me away
From this mess of a life that I'm in
And I fell to my knees oh and I cried
As the lightning rose up from the earth to the sky

In this wreck of a life that I'm in
In this mess of a life that I'm in
In this wreck of a life that I'm in
In this wreck of a life that I'm in
In this mess of a life that I'm in
In this mess of a life that I'm in'

Shine, slide over me
‘Cause I need to feel your sun again
Climb over me
All you needed was a friend
I will shoulder you
‘Cause I'm older now, and I'll see it through
Bring it on down bring it on down
Bring it on down bring it on down
Bring it on down

Paranoia Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : We Were Born In A Flame
She was blessed with a knack for giving bad advice
He's got five thumbs on his left hand five more on his right
Well the mom left home with the super market clerk but
his dad was only jealouse cause the kid had work
And the boy stays home all day 'cause of paranoia

He's got kung fu grooves that can never be imitated
She's got a fashion queen walk and she wears her blue jeans faded
He's got moves with the puck that we've never ever seen
And his girlfriends 22 and he's just 17
And she's gives advice that'll ease your paranoia

And we all need someone to save our souls
'Cause the next time could be mine, could be yours
'Cause the next time could be mine, could be yours
'Cause the next time could be mine, could be yours
'Cause the next time could be mine, could be yours

The Gate Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : Chemical City
Over land, I traveled time and space and quicksand
And for sixty days I knew no other road

And through the maelstrom, which turned in time with the kick drum
I was swallowed and twisted and spit out on a coast
And in this place there stands a gate that leads to the heart of the city
And I've spent seven years and a sea of fears in this broken mirror of a city
Listen to the streets there's a heartbeat missing in the city
Sweet sunlight, I can see it in my mind's eye
Yeah I remember feeling alright
And I saw black clouds and Turin shrouds and it smelled of a faded empire
It's all concrete and steel, we're asleep at the wheel, and the mayor's just a gun for hire
Listen to the streets there's a heartbeat missing in the city
Listen to the sound there's a time bomb ticking in the city

I've heard the song the morning sings
Outside the gate is everything
Let in the light! Let in the light!
Streetwalker said to me she has no need for history
She has the key she has the key
Sweet sunlight, I can see it in my mind's eye
Let in the light! Let in the light!

Waking up from a dream where I was the stone and you were the stream
Chemical City isn't all that you need but it's all that you're getting and they've hidden the key

Listen to the streets there's a heartbeat missing in the city
Listen to the sound there's a time bomb ticking in the city

Let in the light, let in the light
I said this place is an unnatural disaster
And I'm a visitor here so I asked her:
Where are the trees, where are the trees?
And she said free yourself from history
That is the key! That is the key!
Sweet sunlight, I can see it in my mind's eye
I see the light! I see the light!

The gate is gone now, you better run [x4]

Can you feel it? There's a heartbeat missing in the city
Yeah there's a heartbeat missing in the city
Where all the fat-cats are hissing at your pity
There's a heartbeat missing
The gate is gone so you better run,
You better run run run run...
You better run run run run...
You better run!

Bridge To Nowhere Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : Chemical City
Another day breaks and the last one's gone
You dig deep just to carry on
Your debt's paid off but it don't feel gone
So you slip out the back and you're moving on

I can never figure out how to make a case
That this don't amount to a fall from grace
She wants to know can I replace
This tired wool with satin lace

She says you're on a bridge to nowhere and you're gettin' there fast
Put it in the past, put it in the past
If this is a race then I hope you come last
You're on a bridge to nowhere and you're gettin' there fast

Pressure builds till it breaks the dome
You can build a house you can't build a home
And it's a fool who believes love is bred in the bone
And there're no guarantees that you won't get stoned
Yeah, I'm a fool who believed love is bred in the bone
And there're no guarantees that I won't get stoned

Says you're on a bridge to nowhere and you're gettin' there fast
Put it in the past, put it in the past
If this is a race then I hope you come last
You're on a bridge to nowhere and you're gettin' there fast

I don't know where it leads, oh no
All I know is that I don't wanna breathe this chemical breeze no more

So another day breaks and the last one's gone
You dig deep just to carry on
Your debt's paid off but it don't feel gone
So you slip out the back and you're moving on

Says you're on a bridge to nowhere and you're gettin' there fast
Put it in the past, put it in the past
If this is a race then I hope you come last
You're on a bridge to nowhere and you're gettin' there fast

With A Bullet Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : Chemical City
Our love is dark thoughts as it is bright lights
It's the sound of a teardrop falling down from a great height
So don't let go, let waters flow

And babe you have nothing to fear for
This is as real as the rain
My love for you is as deep as a coalmine

You move like moonshine straight to my head
This is a storyline we write from the same bed
You had for sale a holy grail

And babe you have nothing to fear for
This is as real as the rain
My love for you is as deep as a coalmine

And our love is dark thoughts as it is bright lights
And it's the sound of a teardrop falling down from a great height

And babe you have nothing to fear for
This is as real as the rain
My love for you is as deep as a coalmine
No, babe you have nothing to fear for
This is as real as the rain
My love for you is as deep as a coalmine

If you were marked with a bullet
I'd jump in front of it
I'd rather die for love than die for the want of it
Forever alive, forever forward
I have no use at all for any more words

I'll take on all of your sorrows for mine my dear, till the days run clear, until they start to shine, coming through your window, head on your pillow, the sight is honey for my mind girl and I've been digging, ever deeper, this love gets easier the more it's sung to, the more it rings true, the more I find the breath to help sing with these miner's lungs...

Mind Flood Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : Chemical City
When it comes calling, will you heed the call?
When it gets heavy now, will you let it fall?
And as the loon cries it opens minds
The stream reflects these Northern climes
Through these days we walk the line
Sixteen dollars and a couple of dimes

There've been a number of times
Took a step back, couldn't read the signs
Cross the plains till they start to climb
Down to the valley where the river winds
Sing it for me, sing it for me
When the water comes down, get yourself up high...

Grey skies, the waters rise
Mind flood's gonna break the bank
Will it wash us away now? Will it wash us away now?
Blue skies, the river dries
A light goes out before your eyes
Till the break of day now, till the break of day now

Sing it for me, sing it for me
When the water comes down, get yourself up high...
Goin' down to the river now, mind flood's got my head in the gutter
Will it wash us all away?
You come to with a shiver now,
Flash back eighth grade with a stutter
Will it wash us all away?

If love is a cult we are all believers
Cruel, passionate underachievers
Fools lashing out at the dreamers
Kiss the enemy and kill the redeemer
We are indeed a dying breed
We are the people of the sky
So when the river floods and you're made from mud
Get yourself up high....

Sing it for me, sing it for me
When the water comes down, get yourself up high...
Goin' down to the river now, mind flood's got my head in the gutter
Will it wash us all away?
You come to with a shiver now,
Flash back eighth grade with a stutter
Will it wash it all away?
Goin' down to the river now, mind flood's got my head in the gutter
Will it wash us all away?
Whoa, come and wash it all away, all away...
Get yourself up high...

The wolf's eyes have found their prize
And you have found your place in it all....

Uprising Down Under Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : Chemical City
You feel the weight of the weight on your shoulders
Cuz everyday gets shorter and colder
And hand in hand we walk through leather fire
The mountains bleed red as the sun gets higher

All the things that you are I provide
'Til your footprint is swept away by the tide
I can wait for awhile I don't mind
Yeah I can wait for awhile cuz I got time

Wish you was less of a way his
With it were more of the way you could be
And you could put your faith in me for a while
In the end I hope you're free cuz I'll be out of style

All the things that you are I provide
'Til your footprint is swept away by the tide
And I can wait for awhile I don't mind
Yeah I can wait for awhile I got time (I got time)

Whoever said you can't be saved by a song
Whoever said that is stringing you along
We're all afraid to be dead and gone
This will live on it will live on it will live on

And all the things that you are I provide
Til your footprint is swept away by the tide
And I can wait for awhile I don't mind
Yeah I can wait for awhile I got time

And all the things you're looking for I hope you'll find
Before your footprint is swept away by the tide
And I can wait for awhile I don't mind
Yeah I can wait for awhile I got time
And I can wait for awhile I don't mind
Yeah I can wait for awhile I got time (I got time)

Mystified, Heavy Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : Chemical City
Ooh, it's got me mystified, heavy now
Deep down to my soul
You try to keep the wheel steady now
Easy as she goes
I can hear on the wind a tale that needs to be told again
The horizon bends at either end and the sea can't tell a foe from a friend

I know it was only a dream
As delicate as a dragonfly wing

I was never satisfied with any life 'til she called my name
The air on the high ground was rarefied, every day the same
And old fears were always near but when we set sail they disappeared
There are those who fear the deep but the world don't wait when your faith won't leap

And I know it was only a dream
As delicate as a dragonfly wing

Then we watched as the Southern Cross led the sailors home, constellation borne
We set sail in a heavy gale and to the sea many of us thrown
And there were times when my courage failed but I never bowed to the storm
Whatever path you choose to walk, in the end, you walk alone

Ooh, it's got me mystified heavy now
Tongue-tied to the anchor chain
You try to keep your hand steady now
But it slips again
And landfall surprised us all and she broke on the rocks like a china doll
You can hear the siren call for the last dance at Poseidon's Ball

I know it was only a dream
As delicate a dragonfly wing
I hope it was only a dream
As delicate as a dragonfly wing

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : Chemical City
He was born in a small town
And he was given every reason to stay
Hallelujah, Mississippi, postcard living no sign of decay
Till Vietnam moved next door, then Hallelujah was off to war
In the dream he couldn't finish the deed
He didn't smoke any weed so why leave?

Going where I can't be found
And I won't be coming 'round

His father Tom said you better sign on
You'd better take up your gun and fight
I got nothing against them Viet Cong
What did they do wrong and why am I right?

He's on his way to Thunder Bay
Crossed the border late at night
And it was high stakes until he saw the Great Lakes
And he felt the cold wind bite

Going where I can't be found
And I won't be coming 'round
No, I'm an American on the Canadian Shield
And I'm putting down roots in your frozen fields
It gets cold but you feel so good to be a stranger in a town and you're understood

Missing his home, he would wake up in a cold sweat
And pick up the phone and hope that Tom found a way to forget
He's been teaching at the high school, learning the game
In Thunder Bay we're all the same
He's one of us, he has our trust
But there's no going back once the line is crossed

I'm an American on the Canadian Shield
And I'm putting down roots in your frozen fields
It gets cold but you feel so good to be a stranger in a town and you're understood

You can't ask what you're asking me to do
And I hope you understand when I refuse
I'm going North with my point of view
And I'm never gonna think the same as you
And I'm where I can't be found
And I won't be coming 'round
No, I'm an American on the Canadian Shield
And I'm putting down roots in your frozen fields
It gets cold but you feel so good to be a stranger in a town and you're understood

The Bootleg Saint Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : Chemical City
Come make your complaint to the Bootleg Saint
He's been gone, keepin' on, keepin' on for your freedom
Black boots, brown skin he has chemical roots
He's taking back the city one sinner at a time

He'll sacrifice if you pay the price

He remembers a time when everything was alright
We had water from wine, the streets were alive
Then old Captain Industry who sold his soul at Wounded Knee
Bought himself a little property
The Saint had found his enemy

He'll sacrifice if you pay the price

The laws might sleep, but they never die
Lions for sheep - an eye for an eye

He wears a ring with the brand of a three-legged dog
His rose-coloured glasses cut through the fog

The laws might sleep but they never die
Lions for sheep, an eye for an eye

He came down on a storm cloud hard as the Amazon rain
Took him on, took him on and on
And you can pay your respects in the form of a cheque
He's taking back the city one sinner at a time
He'll sacrifice if you pay the price

The laws might sleep but they never die
Lions for sheep, an eye for an eye
The Bootleg Saint, well he walks the line
Between an everyman hero and a waste of time

The Resistance Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : Chemical City
We are descendants of the free
We are the soldiers of the Cause
We shouted out the same decree
To hold the truth above the law

Those were the nights to remember
Now they're the nights to forget
We sang from May to September and we danced
While the city slept

I was born a restless soul
I never did what I was told
That old fire rages on
I hope it burns after I'm gone

I'm getting tired of the same old thing
It only takes one soul to make a change
It takes two young hearts to make it beat again
Three long nights and you're on the mend
Living, loving, swinging, ducking
We might fail but we have to try
I poked my finger in the public eye

Those were the nights to remember
Now they're the nights to forget
We sang from May to September and we danced
While the city slept

We are the only chance
This is our resistance
And if we fail then we all know
How it goes, it goes
How it goes, it goes

I navigate the mines we lay
And I'm comin' home but not today
I fought my way through the hungry mob
The Mayor and his henchmen on the job
We faced-off like it was High Noon,
We both let fly and our aim was true
Yeah!

Those were the nights to remember
Now they're the nights to forget
We sang from May to September and we danced
While the city slept
Those were the nights to remember
Now they're the nights to forget
We sang from May to September and we danced
While the city slept

So even if you can't see it
You can still believe in it
It's easier if you lose all the things that prevent you from seeing it
In the evening sun when the Earth and sky are one
We all come undone and remember where we came from

So even if you can't see it
You can still believe in it
It's easier if you lose all the things that prevent you from seeing it
In the evening sun when the Earth and sky are one
We all come undone and remember where we came from

A Stone Would Cry Out Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : Chemical City
The cinematic after effects of alcohol
Have led me to believe
That there's nothing more beautiful
Than a face as it starts to fade
From your memory, what had once been clear as the day
Obscured by the shade

And I was always the thorn to your rose

A long string of disappointing days
Led me to concede that I'd been losing sleep
And I'm tired and frayed at the seams
And things are changing in me
It's been two hard months since I could call you my own
It cuts to the bone
Is there anything that I can do when I've been turned into stone

But I was always the thorn to your rose
Some doors are better left closed

You move like a rolling wave
One that don't fade when it's gone
Beyond a doubt it gets so hard that a stone would cry out

I know there's a lesson in here
But it's so hard to find
I've been searching my mind
A little pearl of wisdom for the later years
When the thread of this life starts to unwind
I never had to fight for my love
But that's over I know
It's just how it goes
I never had to fight for my love
But that's over I know
It's just how it goes

And you move like a rolling wave
One that don't fade when it's gone
Beyond a doubt it gets so hard, it gets so hard
That a stone would cry out
Some doors are better left closed

Some say this place makes it hard to hold your head up
Some days this face makes me feel like I've been set up

Love At The End Of The World Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : Love At The End Of The World
This is love at the end of the world
You don't need diamonds and you don't need pearls
Water boils on the seven seas
Rivers of blood and she's setting me free
And you're still near me, baby

Smoke rising from an open field
Don't you know that the threat is real
From the top of Mount Kilimanjaro
You look around but you don't see snow
The heat is rising, baby

This is love at the end of the world
There's still love
At the end of the world

Two wars and a revolution
Got me praying for absolution
There's blood on these hands, baby
Preacher saying that the end is nigh
Standing on a soapbox a hundred feet high
You're still by my side, baby

Light fades, becomes shade
You're holding on but you're slipping away
Till I can't feel you anymore

This is love at the end of the world
There's still love
At the end of the world

Red lips, alabaster hands
Ooh girl, what you do to a man
The heat is rising, baby
You don't think, you just follow the herd
And you don't need bullets for a war of words, now
They want what we've got, baby

Light fades, becomes shade
You're holding on but you're slipping away
Till I can't feel you anymore

This is love at the end of the world
There's still love
At the end of the world

This is love at the end of the world
There's still love
At the end of the world

Stripmall Religion Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : Love At The End Of The World
I see nothing at all
But I hear that I'm caught in the crossfire, oh
And fear keeping me low, low to the ground
And it's clear that what I don't know is pulling me down

And all this stripmall religion
Is making me a belligerent man
In spite of tv confessions
Well, I still do the best I can

What goes on in the shadows will come into light
And what was wrong with your mind can it made to be right
So keep a watchful eye on your neighbor tonight
Keep a watchful eye on your neighbor tonight

'Cause all this stripmall religion
Is making me a belligerent man
Eleventh hour decisions
Were lacking in precision

We're the orphans of the storm
It was one for the ages
In my dreams we are all reborn
On the unwritten pages

You go your way and I'll go mine
I'll see you somewhere down the line
You go your way and I'll go mine

Now there's bloodshed in my hometown
And there was bloodshed
There were kids shot down
There were kids shot down, oh

And all this stripmall religion
Is making me a belligerent man
In spite of tv confessions
Well I still do the best I can

Yeah, your stripmall religion
Is making me a belligerent man
Eleventh hour decisions
Were lacking in precision

Ooh, and it makes me uneasy now
You know it makes me uneasy
I said it makes me uneasy now
You know it makes me uneasy, uneasy

You go your way and I'll go mine
I'll see you somewhere down the line
You go your way and I'll go mine
I'll see you somewhere down the line

Oh Maria Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : Love At The End Of The World
You could never compromise
I could never satisfy you at all
Always thought you had gentle eyes
Then you've had me institutionalized (twice before)

Before I was a young man
Now look at me, I'm just younger than old
The years don't seem to touch you
It makes me wonder what you sold

Oh my Maria
I'll never change you, I know, I know
I need to see you
That never changes, oh no

You lived on the seventh floor
It was far from heaven but it meant more
You said things that were hard to ignore
My conversation makes you bored

You always hated wedding bells
You'd go out riding with the Hell's and say
Life is for the taking
Life is for the taking

Oh my Maria
I'll never change you, I know, I know
I need to see you
That never changes, oh no

So how's it going to be, Maria?
Will it be you and me? Or will it be
Five more years of counting my tears?
Five more years of living in fear?

I beg for my supper at night
If this is love then it don't feel right
And my heart's burning out of control
They gave her five, but she's out on parole

Hey hey hey
This girl is leading me astray

Saw a photograph of you today
Your eyes look tired, but you haven't aged
And now I see that you made the front page
Married for the money and you blew him away

Oh Maria, when you were doing time
You only had five words on your mind
Life is for the taking
Life is for the taking

Oh my Maria
I'll never change you, I know, I know
I need to see you
That never changes, oh no

Oh my Maria
I'll never change you, I know, I know
I need to see you
That never changes, oh no

I beg for my supper at night
If this is love then it don't feel right
And my heart's burning out of control
They gave her five, but she's out on parole

Hey hey hey
This girl is leading me astray
Listen what I say
This girl is leading me astray

Lions Of The Kalahari Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : Love At The End Of The World
When I die won't you please feed me
To the lions of the Kalahari
I don't care if they eat my bones
'Cause I know I won't be going home

Oh, it's never far away from me
Oh, it's never far away from me

Rubber on dust as the wheels go 'round
I had never heard a sweeter sound
Till the day that I heard my baby cry
These things I shall carry until I die

Oh, she's never far away from me
Oh, she's never far away from me

The rains came heavy and we closed our eyes
And listened to the song pouring from the skies
Two miles from the border as the eagle flies
But the desert is the same on the other side

The leaves on Mt. Royal turn from green to gold
And crimson as the autumn light takes hold
October's here, I'm another year old
There'll be more telling 'fore my story is told

Oh, when I die won't you please feed me
To the lions of the Kalahari
(I don't care) I don't care if they eat my bones
'Cause I know I won't be going home

Oh, it's never far away from me
Oh, it's never far away from me

Oh, she's never far away from me
Oh, she's never far away from me

Oh, it's never far away from me
Oh, I'm never far away from you

Fixed To Ruin Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : Love At The End Of The World
I'm fixed to ruin
You're fixed on me
We could change positions, honey
With no guarantee

Sundown in a southern town
Then it came the rain
I saw you in a different light
You saw me just the same

She can dance like she got no bones
I forget
I'm all alone

My wicked ways
They might be here to stay
You've been turning my head 'round, baby
With the things you say and the tricks you're playing

What I'd do for you
Sends me off the rails
End up in the jailhouse, baby
For a night with you under a moon so pale

Southeastern blowing
From dusk till the dawn
Honey, where I'm going
Oh the streets are mean and the guns are drawn

She can dance like she got no bones
I forget
I'm all alone

(Ooh) I'd give it up for you
(Ooh) If you want me to

I been a lonely man but you're bringin' me back
Oh you're bringin' me back now
I been a lonely man but you're bringin' me back
Oh you're bringin' me back now

And what I learn from you
Is that history's just things we do
Oh what I learn from you
Is that history is just the things we do

(Ooh)

I'm fixed to ruin
You're fixed on me
We can change positions, baby
With no guarantee

It's gonna be alright now honey
Make no mistake, now
There ain't no amount of money
Could ever take my place

She can dance like she got no bones
I forget
I'm all alone

She can dance like she got no bones
I forget
I'm all alone

(Ooh)

Them Kids Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : Love At The End Of The World
No one feels more alone that the children of a dying breed
You never feel at home when you're just another mouth to feed
I wanna live in geological time
Because I'm still in my biological prime

If nobody listens, then who's gonna hear?
If nobody listens, will we disappear?

You flip a man a quarter playing songs on his guitar
You're on a street corner, feeling like a patron of the arts
And now the kids don't know how to dance to rock and roll
I said the kids don't know how to dance to rock and roll

If nobody listens, then who's gonna hear?
If nobody listens, will we disappear?

I just don't understand why the kids don't know how to dance to rock and roll
I said the kids don't know how to dance to rock and roll
They're always on the phone and they always gotta have control
And now the kids don't know how to dance to rock and roll

The golden years are under attack
(We're taking them back, we're taking them back)
The golden years are under attack
(We're taking them back, we're taking them back)

Looking for an original voice
But the beaten path leaves little choice
The melody that you thought you found
Reveals that she's been sleeping around

We were apostles, they were the high priests
We lived the hustle, the keepers of the backbeat
We're under pressure to reconcile
Our point of view with contemporary style

It used to be that the kids were the ones who knew how to get off
It was a yell from the swamp, now it's only coming out as a cough
I can't sell my songs so I'm gonna have to give 'em away
I can't sell myself since my hair started turning to grey

If nobody listens, then who's gonna hear?
If nobody listens, will we disappear?

I just don't understand why the kids don't know how to dance to rock and roll
I said the kids don't know how to dance to rock and roll
The high priests are calling all disciples back to the fold
Because the kids don't know how to dance to rock and roll

Words & Fire Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : Love At The End Of The World
These words don't come easy
They spit from my lips
But then we never had it easy
It slipped from our fingertips

When we met, you laughed at me
And stole my last cigarette
Said you wanted to share a past with me
That tomorrow's the day to forget
And you said,

"Just give me a reason to carry on
To carry on
Just give me a reason to carry on
To carry on"

Now I've come unhinged
I'm the door in a frame
Well I'm never quite closed
But I ain't open to change

So my knuckles are bruised
From knocking on wood
Well, it's a trick that I've used
Perhaps more than I should
And I said,

"Just give me a reason to carry on
To carry on
Just give me a reason to carry on
To carry on"

'Cause a heart is just a heart
It can break and fall apart
It can bleed and stop and start
'Cause a heart is just a heart

Ooh
Ooh
Ooh

Mix your words with fire
I'll let them burn me down
Let them ring in the air
Like the bells of an old mining town

Just give me a reason to carry on
To carry on
Just give me a reason to carry on
To carry on

Just give me a reason to carry on
To carry on
Just give me a reason to carry on
To carry on

Just give me a reason to carry on
To carry on
Just give me a reason to carry on
To carry on

Just give me a reason to carry on
To carry on
I just want a reason to carry on
To carry on

Sundance Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : Love At The End Of The World
I've been dragged from the deep
Out of my restless slumber
And told to fight to keep
My world from going under

And time won't stop when the land is torn apart
If you want to run, it's too late
And with the guns came the sound of thunder

And even the Sundance Kid would find it hard
To shoot his way out of this hole I'm in
Yeah, even the Sundance Kid would find it hard
To shoot his way out of this hole I'm in

And there are no straight lines
In any human designs
We live the same lives
In different times

And I thank the supreme being
For giving me my eyes
And the days that I had for living
And now I'm laughing
'Cause I can't find tears to cry

And even the Sundance Kid would find it hard
To shoot his way out of this hole I'm in
Yeah, even the Sundance Kid would find it hard
To shoot his way out of this hole I'm in

You can rise above yourself
But never the times that you live in
You can escape from your chains
But never the days that you're given

No, I never robbed a bank
In an Andean town
And I have no one to thank
For any happiness that I have found

And guns blaze
They burn as bright as the sun
Any eye can see that there are many
But in the end, well, it only takes one

And even the Sundance Kid would find it hard
To shoot his way out of this hole I'm in
Yeah, even the Sundance Kid would find it hard
To shoot his way out of this hole I'm in

Up Sister Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : Love At The End Of The World
I've been sold down the river
And I've been told that Jesus delivers
But don't believe everything that you bleed
It may mean nothing to you but it means something to me

I got sidetracked and rearranged
And like a leper, I've been estranged
And drawn to fame like a moth to a flame
Living hand to mouth, but I'm hoping for change

I've been drowning in the Queen's tears
I've been staring at a square face in the mirror for years
She feels like water and she tastes like wind
And her fire burns hotter when the night rolls in

You've been a saint, I've been a sinner
You're a fat cat, I'm getting thinner
I'm having trouble telling wrong from right
These slippery handshakes that keep me awake at night

Oh, I think you've seen me before
Yeah, you had your eyes on mine 'cause your grass don't grow
This ain't a song, it's a call to arms
There's a gathering storm, better sound the alarm

I've been drowning in the Queen's tears
I've been staring at a square face in the mirror for years
She feels like water and she tastes like wind
And her fire burns hotter when the night rolls in

None of your friends ever know what to say
'Cause what you wish for tomorrow, you could have today
None of your friends ever know what to say
'Cause what you wish for tomorrow, you could have today

Up sister, keep your head on
Living in the past but the past is gone
Up sister, can you hear?
That the future is here, the future is here now

Up sister, keep your head on
Living in the past but the past is gone
Up sister, come clean
It's a slippery slope and you're the avalanche queen

None of your friends ever know what to say
'Cause what you wish for tomorrow, you could have today
None of your friends ever know what to say
'Cause what you wish for tomorrow, you could have today

End Of The Empire Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : Love At The End Of The World
Witness the end of the empire, the Romans of our time
Start little fires, then they get too high
You fan the flames and they still remain
Long after you lose desire

Then a breakdown turns to a heart attack
And it's far too late, you'll never bring it back
You can take what you want from me
But you better believe that I can see you

Watch the sun set on the empire
One last round as it goes down
Start a little fire in your best attire
You can blame the gin for the mess you're in
Take a pension and retire

Then a breakdown turns into a heart attack
And it's far too late, you'll never bring it back
You can take what you want from me
But you better believe that I can see you

You can run but you can't hide
From that feeling buried deep inside
Let's forget if only for tonight
Hold you lover and your secrets tight

We're all wasted
You know the end, I can taste it
I'm walking away this time
I'm leaving it all behind

Breakdown turns into a heart attack
And it's far too late, you'll never bring it back
You can take what you want from me
But you better believe that I can see you

Stick to the facts 'cause the facts don't lie
Stick to your guns when the bullets fly
Stick to the wall when the light sweeps by
Stick in the mud over one in the eye

One part breaks it was made defective
The wheel don't turn 'cause it's all connected
Six feet down being resurrected
Heart says yes but your body rejects it

You can take what you want from me
But you better believe that I can see you
You can take what you want from me
But you better believe that I can see you

You can run but you can't hide
From that feeling buried deep inside
Let's forget if only for tonight
Hold you lover and your secrets tight

We're all wasted
You know the end, I can taste it
I'm walking away this time
I'm leaving it all behind

I'm walking away this time
I'm leaving it all behind
For you

The Pilgrim Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : Love At The End Of The World
I'm a pilgrim like you
I was only passing through
You'll never know my name
You'll never walk in my shoes

I've been no use to my friends
I've been no use to myself
Now I'm looking for proof
That I ain't someone else

I was too afraid to read the newspaper
Working in the basement of a skyscraper
That's why I roll and you'll never know my name
Oh no

I'm not here to feel the bones of some forgotten saint
I know who I am and I know who you ain't
Spent fifteen days in solitary confinement
Digging a hole in the wall
There's no escape, they said you need realignment
Now you're praying for help but they don't hear you call

I was too afraid to read the newspaper
Working in the basement of a skyscraper
That's why I roll and you'll never know my name
Oh no

Destination, I don't care
I know I'll get there when I'm there
There's only one thing on my mind
I've got more troubles than a diamond's got shine

My shoes have kicked up dust from here to somewhere else
Is this wanderlust or running from myself?
My neck was in the noose, but now I've been cut loose
And put out to graze in delicate pastures
Now I'm waiting for someone to put me to use

I hope it's clear as crystal
That the man with the pistol
Is calling all the shots these days
Now I'll be on my way, oh

The self-fulfilling prophets
They been lining their pockets
And telling me that it's alright
But I just don't buy it, oh no

Destination, I don't care
I know I'll get there when I'm there
There's only one thing on my mind
I've got more troubles than a diamond's got shine

Destination, I don't care
I know I'll get there when I'm there
There's only one thing on my mind
I've got more troubles than a diamond's got shine

Walking The Dead Lyrics

Artist : SAM ROBERTS
Album : Love At The End Of The World
You only miss it when it's long gone
You only hear it when it's our song
These are the echoes of the dreamtime
This is a message from another life
This is a haunting of your own mind
These are the echoes of the dreamtime
You only miss it when it's long gone

I've been waking the dead
I've been leaning on tradition
Trying to make amends with the dead
Prayer candles that I burn at both ends
Missed opportunities we won't share again

I recognized in the touch of a friend
That I am closer to the place I began
And so far from where I want it to end

You only miss it when it's long gone
You only hear it when it's our song
Keep looking up, 'cause it's a long way down
Keep looking up, 'cause it's a long way down

And now I'm walking with the dead
An apparition trying to get ahead
Bleed some pressure from this hole in my heavy head

And there was high water everywhere
Back teeth are swimming and I wished I cared
My teeth are swimming and I wish that I cared

You only miss it when it's long gone
You only hear it when it's our song
Keep looking up, 'cause it's a long way down
Keep looking up, 'cause it's a long way down

And I feel like making a confession
Or running for the door
If we could heal a little bit of this broken pride
We might survive

These are the echoes of the dreamtime
This is a message from another life
This is a haunting of your own mind
These are the echoes of the dreamtime
