Lyrics

Jigsaw Puzzle (Elvenking)

Take a look at the new rules of this game
Wicked laughters are feeding their fame
Hearing the cries from the empty shells
Unmoved they seem

Hungry for turmoil and wedges
Ivy-clad so that we can't see
One peace at a time they steal
Collecting memories

Notch up another victory
Upon our shoulders and true beliefs
With wheedling words they reign
So sweet is our decay

Raise your voice
Aim as high as they can't see
Now you can say:
"Speak your last word,
speak your last word!"

Born in the garden of overgrown madness
We still search what remains of our lives
Scattered pieces for their jigsaw puzzle
Swapping destinies

Whencesoever they derive their powers
Where all hopes are misled and repressed
Vowing to break from the hardest chains
Tearless they seem

Prophets of doom
Playing god, how does it feel?
The fate of Sky and Earth
Awaits their sentence too

Shattered we are
Sold and bought in the Merchants' fair
Beneath hard flesh it burns
Beware of our hate!

Sweet Mary (Equalizer)


It was a year of eighteen hundred and seventy six in J8 when I first met my Mary quite contrary to what my mother did say.she was a mountain girl come to Spanish town, I was only there for a while. But when I think back on all the love we shared, I just can't but help to smile. We spent one whole long year together, and at the end, I had to go. By my Mary's side I wept and cried, I've never been laid so low. She said boy when you first met me, you were as green as a mango tree but now you are a man go back to your land but first listen carefully...

You can smoke two pounds of Cali herb by yourself and try to stand on your head. No matter how high you get you'll never forget the wonder of Mary's bed.

Now my Mary's sweet smell was in my nose and vision it robbed me blind. And as I crossed the sea it occurred to me that I had left myself behind. She was my natural mystic sweet sugar plum. I still ask why did I go. They say your first love is your hardest love and I'd have to say that's so. And it's a day in another day and a way in another way, had a family once but they're gone. And it don't strike me as weird that there's gray in my beard but the words still linger on...

You can smoke two pounds of Cali herb by yourself and try to stand on your head. No matter how high you get you'll never forget the wonder of Mary's bed.


Now there's nothing for me left here except some broken dreams, disappointments, I've had a few. There's this place I know where the mangos grow and there's just one thing left to do. I'll go back to my Mary's bed, plant a kiss on her head and pretend that time just stood still. Then I can live out my life like it should have been and the rest will be what it will.

So I went back to the bar where we first met, asked the bartender where could she be. And as he poured me a beer he said last year she left this world peacefully. And every man in the bar looked at me. He said old man don't you see, we were all touched by Mary just like you now she lives on in our memories. And we all can...

Smoke two pounds of Cali herb by ourselves and try to stand on our head. No matter how high we get we'll never forget the wonder of Mary's bed. And we can run 200 miles through a ganja field until all we see is red. And we can shout it out we're still thinking about the wonders of Mary's bed. And so we sing jumble around sweet Mary, you know we all have to move along you never know what you've got in this cruel world until you realize it's gone.

Land Of The Navajo (Old And In The Way)

Oh the wind blows cold
On the trail of the buffalo
Oh the wind blows cold
In the land of the Navajo
In the land of the Navajo

A hundred miles from nowhere out on the desert sand
One Eyed Jack the trader hold some turquoise in his hand
By his side sat Running Elk his longtime Indian friend
He vowed that he would stay by Jack until the bitter end

Jack had gambled everything he owned to leave this wondering life
He might have had a happy home and a tender loving wife
But his hunger was for trading trapper's furs for turquoise stones
Anything that the Indians had Jack wanted for his own

Said Jack to Running Elk I'll gamble all my precious stones
Before I leave my body here among these bleaching bones
Though now my time is drawing near and I'm filled with dark regrets
My spirit longs to journey as the sun begins to set

We raped and killed we stole your land
We rule with guns and knives add whiskey to your waters
While we stole away your wives
said Running Elk what's done is done you white men rule this land
so lay the cards face up and play your last broken hearted hand

* Refrain

When your dealing cards with death the joker's wild the ace is high
Jack bet the Mississippi River running Elk raised him the sky
Jack saw him with the sun and room and upped him with the stars
Running Elk bet the Rocky Mountains Jupiter and Mars

The sun was sinking in the west when Jack draw the ace of spades
Running Elk just rolled his eyes and smiled and passed away
Jack picked up his turquoise stones and cast them to the sky
He stared into the setting sun and made the mournful cry

* Refrain

Rainbow (South Border)


Fallin' out, fallin' in
Nothings sure in this world, no no
Breaking down, breaking in
Never knowing what lies ahead
We can really never tell it all, no no

Say goodbye, say hello
To a lover or friend
Sometimes we could never understand
Why some things begin with just love
We can never have it all
No no no ohh

But oh, can't you see
That no matter what happens
Life goes on and on
And so baby just smile
Cause I'm always around you
And I'll make you see
How beautiful life is
For you and me

Take a little time baby
See the butterfly's colors
Listen to the birds
That were sent to sing
For me and you
Can you feel me?
This is such a wonderful place to me

Even if there is pain now
Everything will be alright
For as long as the world still turns
There will be night and day
Can you hear me?
Yhere's a rainbow always
After the rain

Hittin' high, hittin' low
Win or lose, you should go
Yeah yeah
Getting warm, getting cold
Weather can be so good or bad
But baby, this is life so don't get mad
No no no

Cause ohhh
Can't you see
That no matter what happens
Life goes on and on
And so, baby, just smile
Cause I'm always around you
And I'll make you see
How beautiful life is
For you and me

Take a little time, baby
See the butterfly's colors
Listen to the birds
That were sent to sing
For me and you
Can you feel me?
This is such a wonderful place to me

Even if there is pain now
Everything will be alright
For as long as the world still turns
There will be night and day
Can you hear me ?
There's a rainbow always
After the rain

Life's full of challenges
Not all the time
We get what we want
But don't despair, my dear
You'll take it each trial
And you'll make it through the storm
Cause youre strong
My faith in you is clear
So I say once again
This world's beautiful
Let us celebrate life
That is so beautiful
So beautiful...

Take a little time, baby
See the butterfly's colors
Listen to the birds that were sent
To sing for me and you
Can you feel me?
This is such a wonderful place to me

Even if there is pain now
Everything will be alright
For as long as the world still turns
There will be night and day
Can you hear me?
There's a rainbow always
After the rain

I Believe (Shadow Gallery)

Long ago a living story
Walked the whole world phrophesying
Told of days when the hand of God
Pulls away from the world
All hell starts breaking out
I see it clear
It pounds the cold into your life
It turns to gray what's black and white
I've torn their mask off
I can see them
What a bloody mess
That's our world!
My father's final moments
And I was there to catch his last breath
He spoke so eloquently
Said
Listen boy the way it goes is soley
Up to you and you alone
To live your life in strength that's been passed on
Blood to blood.
So we come to a crossroad
I'm not sinking - do you see me?
I am standing where the strong of heart
Meet the wicked bad
Murals painted in the dungeons
Were the dreams that caused transforming
I am coming back to life again
Life again
A power's lifting me I journey to the light
Many secrets passed before my eyes
It's just a matter of time 'til new horizons will unfold
Tearing down the walls between us
Resurrect this poisoned world
Fore the hopes and dreams of all the land are blown into the sky
There are things worth more than money
You got to learn to hold them high
I believe - I believe
I've seen what comes of greed and money
I feel a growing call for action
We need changes now like never before
Never in this world
The more I think about it
I know a woman whoh just might set the course for me
Cause I believe
I believe in what she says
Sometimes this world is simply
Trembling - crumbling
Coming time to banish it for evermore
Evermore
The time for final judgement's close at hand
Four horsemen mount on high
Wake up in the morning to the sound of children dying
The latest technology mesmerize them
Love strong enough that it can pull you from the fire now
What about you?
What about you?
I am alive!
It's just a matter of time 'til new horizons will unfold
Tearing down the walls between us
Resurrect this poisoned world
Fore the hopes and dreams of all the land are blown into the sky
There are things worth more than money
You got to learn to hold them high
I believe - I believe

London Pride (Noel Coward)

London Pride has been handed down to us.
London Pride is a flower that's free.
London Pride means our own dear town to us,
And our pride it for ever will be.
Woa, Liza,
See the coster barrows,
Vegetable marrows
And the fruit piled high.
Woa, Liza,
Little London sparrows,
Covent Garden Market where the costers cry.
Cockney feet
Mark the beat of history.
Every street
Pins a memory down.
Nothing ever can quite replace
The grace of London Town.

INTERLUDE
There's a little city flower every spring unfailing
Growing in the crevices by some London railing,
Though it has a Latin name, in town and country-side
We in England call it London Pride.

London Pride has been handed down to us.
London Pride is a flower that's free.
London Pride means our own dear town to us,
And our pride it for ever will be.
Hey, lady,
When the day is dawning
See the policeman yawning
On his lonely beat.
** lady,
Mayfair in the morning,
Hear your footsteps echo in the empty street.
Early rain
And the pavement's glistening.
All Park Lane
In a shimmering gown.
Nothing ever could break or harm
The charm of London Town.

INTERLUDE
In our city darkened now, street and square and crescent,
We can feel our living past in our shadowed present,
Ghosts beside our starlit Thames
Who lived and loved and died
Keep throughout the ages London Pride.

London Pride has been handed down to us.
London Pride is a flower that's free.
London Pride means our own dear town to us,
And our pride it for ever will be.
Grey city
Stubbornly implanted,
Taken so for granted
For a thousand years.
Stay, city,
Smokily enchanted,
Cradle of our memories and hopes and fears.
Every Blitz
Your resistance
Toughening,
From the Ritz
To the Anchor and Crown,
Nothing ever could override
The pride of London Town.

Montana (Venus Hum)

Panic start it's 8o'clock 28
Mach 10 to get to the school on time
Throw a dress on over my head
Jump in my freedom ride
Fill me up with sound
The world sings with me a million smiles an hour
I can see me dancing on my radio
I can hear you singing in the blades of grass
Yellow dandelions on my way to school
Big Beautiful Sky!

Panic start it's just enough, a little, too late
Park calls!
I'll not go to school today
Throw a bright pink dress over my red head
Go to Saint Mary's Lake
Fill me up with sound
The world sings with me a million smiles an hour
I can see me dancing on my radio
I can hear you singing in the blades of grass
Yellow dandelions on my way to school
Big Beautiful Sky!

Wasted & Ready (Ben Kweller)

Force field Super sheild A, A
Junior high love affair is ok
Jump on the big wagon because I'm So Cal
I'm big in every way
I'm running as fast as I can

She goes above and beyond her call of duty
She is a slut but her ex thinks it's **y
** reminders her of eating spaghetti
I'm running as fast as I can
I'm running as fast as I can, yeah

If you wanna move it so
Why dont you make it go
Prove to everybody that doesn't understand
All the nights, all the fights
You are outta sight
Some say more with their hands
I'm running as fast as I can

She goes above and beyond her call of duty
She is a slut but her ex thinks it's **y
** reminders her of eating spaghetti
I'm running as fast as I can
I'm running as fast as I rawk!

Why am I dealing with this feeling?
I'm maxed out like a credit card
I'll continue to be, my worst enemy
It's easy but it seems so hard
You're near but you seem so far...seems so far

She goes above and beyond her call of duty
She is a slut but her ex thinks it's **y
** reminders her of eating spaghetti
I am wasted and I am ready
I am ready
I am ready
I am ready

I'm running as fast as I can
I'm running as fast as I can, can
I'm running as fast as I can
I'm running as faaaast
As I can.

Jupiter Island (Porcupine Tree)

Jupiter Island is full of pleasures
Glowing gardens holding hidden treasures
Luminous flowers of yellows and greens
Glittering petals that have to be seen
Here's your chance don't let it pass you by
Take my hand and we'll fly

Jupiter Island is surrounded by oceans
Majestic ballerinas with graceful motions
Magenta forests on a crimson sea
The electric clouds ar as vivid as can be
Scarlet moons in a domino sky
Take my hand and we'll fly

Come on let's fly to Jupiter Island
Just take my hand and we'll fly

Jupiter Island is full of mountains
Ruby rivers and sapphire fountains
Chessboard lawns bible black and white
The pink and blue trees are incredibly bright
An orange sunset painted on the sky
Take my hand and we'll fly

Jupiter Island is full of people
But you can't see them unless you want to
Lying in the hay on a hot sunny day
Everyone's happy so no-one's**
Laughter from the children dances way on high Take my
hand and we'll fly

Jupiter Island is full of meadows
Fertile pastures for growing rainbows
Illuminated portraits from strange orchestrations
Lost in a collage of its own creations
Never a chance to wave goodbye
Take my hand and we'll fly

Joy (Against Me!)

All's quiet, except for this song.
So maybe while I'm not together I can feel like I'm not alone.
And somewhere off in the distance, rapidly advancing, is an onslaught of sorts.
Young sirens wail with a skewed sense of glory.
And the lions in the cages roar at the memory of flight.

And there's a joy, a joy in all I can see.
A joy, in every possibility.

And all around this is a great, great feeling.
American rockets red-glared our most
disgusting triumph.
And in passing I am asked "Do you believe in a God?",
I shrug off the answer and continue to get high in this terror of no explanation.
I am looking for a faith.
My panic is an only reason.

And there's a joy, a joy in all I can see.
A joy, in every possibility.
