and How you suffered for your Sanity.

By: Patrap, 12:46 AM GMT on February 29, 2012



Starry, starry night.
Paint your palette blue and grey,
Look out on a summer's day,
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul.
Shadows on the hills,
Sketch the trees and the daffodils,
Catch the breeze and the winter chills,
In colors on the snowy linen land.

Now I understand what you tried to say to me,
How you suffered for your sanity,
How you tried to set them free.
They would not listen, they did not know how.
Perhaps they'll listen now.

Starry, starry night.
Flaming flowers that brightly blaze,
Swirling clouds in violet haze,
Reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue.
Colors changing hue, morning field of amber grain,
Weathered faces lined in pain,
Are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand.

Now I understand what you tried to say to me,
How you suffered for your sanity,
How you tried to set them free.
They would not listen, they did not know how.
Perhaps they'll listen now.

For they could not love you,
But still your love was true.
And when no hope was left in sight
On that starry, starry night,
You took your life, as lovers often do.
But I could have told you, Vincent,
This world was never meant for one
As beautiful as you.

Starry, starry night.
Portraits hung in empty halls,
Frameless head on nameless walls,
With eyes that watch the world and can't forget.
Like the strangers that you've met,
The ragged men in the ragged clothes,
The silver thorn of bloody rose,
Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow.

Now I think I know what you tried to say to me,
How you suffered for your sanity,
How you tried to set them free.
They would not listen, they're not listening still.
Perhaps they never will...





(Great Spirit come - Great Spirit come)
Who has chased away the moonbeams?
Who has pulled a blanket across the sky?
Who will sing in celebration
Throughout this land that's bound to die?
Oh - that's bound to die

(Great Spirit come - Great Spirit come)
Who will put an end to all this sadness?
Who hears the Earth that cries beneath the burning rain?
All truth reduced to piles of greed and madness
The accident remains the same
It remains the same

(Great Spirit come - Great Spirit come)
Robbery and evil and the stealing
From the body and the mind for the healing
Of the spirit and the pride and the will of the land
(Grace and courage, honesty and love)
There's evil, there's evil, there's evil going on

(Great Spirit come - Great Spirit come)
I love my brother - I must share the seed
That falls through fortune at my feet
The fate of nations and of all their needs
Lies trapped inside these hearts of greed

(Great Spirit come - Great Spirit come)
Great Spirit come - come on, come on
(Great Spirit come - Great Spirit come)
(Grace and courage, honesty and love)
Great Spirit come - come on, come on
It's the will of the land
(Great Spirit - Great Spirit)
The will of the land
We'll sing in celebration --












Oh ohhhhh, oh yeah
Ah ahhhhh, oh yeah

And your city will fall
And your corn won't grow
To the silence from the temple
Hear the truth explode
It is written in the dust
It is whispered in the wind
From the wisdom of the fathers
Where the word begins

Ah ahhhhh, oh yeah
Oh ohhhhh, oh yeah

In the kingdom of gold
And the stolen chance
You can join the celebration
See the children dance
And the bells will ring
And the crowds will roar
And the sand in the glass
Can pour no more

Yallah, yallah, yallah, yallah,
Yallah, yallah, yallah, yallah

Oh ohhhhh, oh yeah
Oh ohhhhh, oh yeah

The rivers will freeze
And the hosts descend
Thru the fires and the storms
To the bitter end
And the treasures and the gifts
And the words and truths
Will be cast to the heavens
With Oomrah fruit

Ah ahhhhh, oh yeah
Oh ohhhhh, oh yeah

And your city will fall
And your corn won't grow
To the silence from the temple
Hear the truth explode
It is written in the dust
It is whispered in the wind
From the wisdom of the fathers
Where the word begins







One day you'll look to see I've gone
For tomorrow may rain, so I'll follow the sun.
Some day you'll know I was the one
But tomorrow may rain, so I'll follow the sun.
And now the time has come
And so my love I must go.
And though I lose a friend,
In the end you will know, oooh.
One day you'll find that I have gone
But tomorrow may rain, so I'll follow the sun.
Yes, tomorrow may rain, so I'll follow the sun.
And now the time has come
And so my love I must go.
And though I lose a friend,
In the end you will know, oooh.
One day you'll find that I have gone
But tomorrow may rain, so I'll follow the sun.














In my time of dying, want nobody to mourn
All I want for you to do is take my body home

Well, well, well, so I can die easy (X2)

Jesus, gonna make up my dyin' bed.
Meet me, Jesus, meet me. Meet me in the middle of the air
If my wings should fail me, Lord. Please meet me with another pair

Well, well, well, so I can die easy (X2)

Jesus, gonna make up.. somebody, somebody...
Jesus gonna make up... Jesus gonna make you my dyin' bed

Oh, Saint Peter, at the gates of heaven... Won't you let me in
I never did no harm. I never did no wrong

Oh, Gabriel, let me blow your horn. Let me blow your horn
Oh, I never did, did no harm.

I've only been this young once. I never thought I'd do anybody no wrong
No, not once.

Oh, I did somebody some good. Somebody some good...
Oh, did somebody some good. I must have did somebody some good...
Oh, I believe I did

I see the smiling faces
I know I must have left some traces

And I see them in the streets
And I see them in the field
And I hear them shouting under my feet
And I know it's got to be real
Oh, Lord, deliver me
All the wrong I've done
You can deliver me, Lord
I only wanted to have some fun.

Hear the angels marchin', hear the' marchin', hear them marchin',
hear them marchin', the' marchin'

Oh my Jesus... (repeat)

Oh, don't you make it my dyin', dyin', dyin'...cough

(Studio Chatter: "That's gonna be the one 'asn't it?"
"Come have a listen, then. "
Oh yes, thank you.")

Out On The Tiles

By: Patrap, 5:10 PM GMT on February 10, 2012

As I walk down the highway all I do is sing this song
And a train that passes my way helps the rythm move along.
There is no doubt about the words are clear
The voice is strong is oh so strong.

I'm just a simple guy and I live from day to day.
A ray of sunshine melts the clouds and blows my blues away
There's nothing more that I can say but on a day like today
I pass the time away and walk a quiet mile with you.

All I need from you is all your love
All you got to give to me is all your love
All I need from you is all your love
All you got to give to me is all your love.
Oooh yeah ooh yeah ooh yeah oh yeah.

I'm so glad I'm living and gonna tell the world I am
I got me a fine woman and she says that I'm her man
One thing that I know for sure gonna give her all the loving
Like nobody nobody nobody nobody can.

Standing in the noonday sun trying to flag a ride
People come and people go come see my rider right by my side
It's a total disgrace, they set the pace it must be a race
And the best thing I can do is run.
