Standing by the Everyman digging the rigging on my sail Rain fell through sounds of harpsichords to the spell of Fairy tales The heath was hung in magic mists, enchanted dripping glades I'll taste the tastes until my mind drifts from this scene And fades In the night time Crystals sparkle in the grass, I polish them with thought On my lash, there in my eye, a star of light is caught Fortunes told in grains of sand, here I am is all I know Candy stuck in children's hair everywhere I go In the night time Gypsy is the clown of love I paint his face a smile Anyone we ever make we always make in style Yeah, strange young girls with radar screens and hands as Quick as hate I won't just now, later on maybe, and even then I'll wait In the night time Standing by the Everyman digging the rigging on my sail Rain fell through sounds of harpsichords to the spell of Fairy tales The heath was hung in magic mists, enchanted dripping glades I'll taste the tastes until my mind drifts from this scene And fades In the night time

The falling leaves drift by my window The falling leaves of red and gold I see your lips the summer kisses The sunburned hands I used to hold Since you went away the days grow long And soon I'll hear old winter's song But I'll miss you most of all my darling When autumn leaves start to fall

Angie 04:25
Angie, Angie When will those dark clouds all disappear Angie, Angie Where will it lead us from here With no lovin' in our souls And no money in our coats You can't say we're satisfied Angie, Angie You can't say we never tried Angie, you're beautiful But ain't it time we say goodbye Angie, I still love you Remember all those nights we cried All the dreams were held so close Seemed to all go up in smoke Let me whisper in your ear Angie, Angie Where will it lead us from here Oh, Angie, don't you weep Oh your kisses still taste sweet I hate that sadness in your eyes But Angie Angie Ain't it time we said goodbye With no lovin' in our souls And no money in our coats You can't say we're satisfied Angie, I still love you baby Everywhere I look I see your eyes There ain't a woman that comes close to you Come on baby dry your eyes Angie, Angie ain't good to be alive Angie, Angie, we can't say we never tried

It's Saturday night, it feels like a Sunday in some ways If you had any sense, you'd maybe go away for a few days Be that as it may, you can only say you are lonely You are but a young girl working your way through the phonies Cafe on, milk gone, such a sad light and fading. Yourself you touch, but not too much. You hear it's degrading. The flowers on your stockings wilting away in the midnight The book you are reading is someone's opinion of moonlight Your skin is so white, you'd like maybe to go to bed soon Just closing your eyes if you're to rise up before noon High heels, car wheels, all the losers are groovin' Your dream, strange scene, images are movin' Your friends they are making a pop star or two every evening You know that scene backwards, they can't see the patterns they're weaving Your friends they're all models but you soon got over that one You sit in your one room a little brought down in London Cafe on, milk gone, such a sad light and fading. Yourself you touch, but not too much. You hear it's degrading. It's Saturday night, it feels like a Sunday in some ways If you had any sense, you'd maybe go away for a few days Be that as it may, you can only say you are lonely You are but a young girl working your way through the phonies.

For No One 02:18
our day breaks, your mind aches You find that all the words of kindness linger on When she no longer needs you She wakes up, she makes up She takes her time and doesn't feel she has to hurry She no longer needs you And in her eyes you see nothing No sign of love behind the tears Cried for no one A love that should have lasted years! You want her, you need her And yet you don't believe her when she says her love is dead You think she needs you And in her eyes you see nothing No sign of love behind the tears Cried for no one A love that should have lasted years! You stay home, she goes out She says that long ago she knew someone but now he's gone She doesn't need him Your day breaks, your mind aches There will be times when all the things she said will fill your head You won't forget her

Nobody feels any pain Tonight as I stand inside the rain Ev'rybody knows That Baby's got new clothes But lately I see her ribbons and her bows Have fallen from her curls She takes just like a woman, yes, she does She makes love just like a woman, yes, she does And she aches just like a woman But she breaks just like a little girl Queen Mary She's my friend Yes, I believe I'll go see her again Nobody has to guess That Baby can't be blessed Till she sees finally that she's like all the rest With her fog, her amphetamine and her pearls She takes just like a woman, yes She makes love just like a woman, yes, she does And she aches just like a woman But she breaks just like a little girl It was raining from the first And I was dying there of thirst So I came in here And your long-time curse hurts But what's worse Is this pain in here I can't stay in here Ain't it clear that I just can't fit Yes, I believe it's time for us to quit But when we meet again Introduced as friends Please don't let on that you knew me when I was hungry and it was your world Ah, you take just like a woman, You make love just like a woman, And you ache just like a woman But you break just like a little girl

Quicksand 04:30
I'm closer to the Golden Dawn Immersed in Crowley's uniform Of imagery I'm living in a silent film Portraying Himmler's sacred realm Of dream reality I'm frightened by the total goal Drawing to the ragged hole And I ain't got the power anymore No, I ain't got the power anymore I'm the twisted name on Garbo's eyes Living proof of Churchill's lies, I'm destiny I'm torn between the light and dark Where others see their targets, divine symmetry Should I kiss the viper's fang? Or herald loud the death of Man I'm sinking in the quicksand of my thought And I ain't got the power anymore Don't believe in yourself, don't deceive with belief Knowledge comes with death's release Aah-aah, aah-aah, aah-aah, aah-aah I'm not a prophet or a stone-age man Just a mortal with the potential of a superman I'm living on I'm tethered to the logic of Homo Sapien Can't take my eyes from the great salvation Of bullshit faith If I don't explain what you ought to know You can tell me all about it on the next Bardo I'm sinking in the quicksand of my thought And I ain't got the power anymore Don't believe in yourself, don't deceive with belief Knowledge comes with death's release Aah-aah, aah-aah, aah-aah, aah-aah Don't believe in yourself, don't deceive with belief Knowledge comes with death's release Aah-aah, aah-aah, aah-aah, aah-aah

The summer had inhaled and held its breath too long The winter looked the same, as if it never had gone And through an open window where no curtain hung I saw you I saw you Comin' back to me One begins to read between the pages of a book The shape of sleepy music, and suddenly you're hooked Through the rain upon the trees, the kisses on the run I saw you I saw you Comin' back to me You came to stay and live my way Scatter my love like leaves in the wind You always say you won't go away But I know what it always has been It always has been A transparent dream beneath an occasional sigh Most of the time I just let it go by Now I wish it hadn't begun I saw you, I saw you Comin' back to me Strolling the hills overlooking the shore I realized I've been there before The shadow in the mist could have been anyone I saw you I saw you Comin' back to me

So they told the tale of the golden sun And the shining girl who lived within So pretty I'll go now I know now Just where to find her So the story goes we wore the clothes To make it all seem possible The hope it was All gone now So long now But not forgotten We tried so hard to make it come true A perfect dream, sun bouncing, sky blue Pop down the years, still shining on you Translucent songs that made the world new Those summer days, your sweet perfume Just filled the air with magic A symphony So bright now All light now They watched us dancing. A slip of time, a ray of sun A floating song of a perfect world And endless love How softly How sadly Young hearts were broken We tried so hard to make it come true A perfect dream, sun bouncing, sky blue Pop down the years, still shining on you Translucent songs that made our love new
