The Lazarus Heart
He looked beneath his shirt today There was a wound in his flesh so deep and wide From the wound a lovely flower grew From somewhere deep inside He turned around to face his mother To show her the wound in his breast that burned like a brand But the sword that cut him open Was the sword in his mother's hand Every day another miracle Only death will tear us apart To sacrifice a life for yours I'd be the blood of the Lazarus heart The blood of the Lazarus heart Though the sword was his protection The wound itself would give him power The power to remake himself at the time of his darkest hour She said the wound would give him courage and pain The kind of pain that you can't hide From the wound a lovely flower grew From somewhere deep inside Every day another miracle Only death will keep us apart To sacrifice a life for yours I'd be the blood of the Lazarus heart The blood of the Lazarus heart Birds on the roof of my mother's house I've no stones that chase them away Birds on the roof of my mother's house Will sit on my roof someday They fly at the window, they fly at the door Where does she get the strength to fight them anymore She counts all her children as a shield against the rain Lifts her eyes to the sky like a flower to the rain Every day another miracle Only death will keep us apart To sacrifice a life for yours I'd be the blood of the Lazarus heart The blood of the Lazarus heart Be Still My Beating Heart
Be still my beating heart It would be better to be cool It's not time to be open just yet A lesson once learned is so hard to forget Be still my beating heart Or I'll be taken for a fool It's not healthy to run at this pace The blood runs so red to my face I've been to every single book I know To soothe the thoughts that plague me so I sink like a stone that's been thrown in the ocean My logic has drowned in a sea of emotion Stop before you start Be still my beating heart Be still my beating heart You must learn to stand your ground It's not healthy to run at this pace The blood runs so red to my face I've been to every single book I know To soothe the thoughts that plague me so Stop before you start Be still my beating heart Never to be wrong Never to make promises that break It's like singing in the wind Or writing on the surface of a lake And I wriggle like a fish caught on dry land Struggle to avoid any help at hand I sink like a stone that's been thrown in the ocean My logic has drowned in a sea of emotion Stop before you start Be still my beating heart Englishman In New York
I don't drink coffee I take tea my dear I like my toast done on the side And you can hear it in my accent when I talk I'm an Englishman in New York See me walking down Fifth Avenue A walking cane here at my side I take it everywhere I walk I'm an Englishman in New York I'm an alien I'm a legal alien I'm an Englishman in New York I'm an alien I'm a legal alien I'm an Englishman in New York If "manners maketh man" as someone said Then he's the hero of the day It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile Be yourself no matter what they say I'm an alien I'm a legal alien I'm an Englishman in New York I'm an alien I'm a legal alien I'm an Englishman in New York Modesty, propriety can lead to notoriety You could end up as the only one Gentleness, sobriety are rare in this society At night a candle's brighter than the sun Takes more than combat gear to make a man Takes more than license for a gun Confront your enemies, avoid them when you can A gentleman will walk but never run If "manners maketh man" as someone said Then he's the hero of the day It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile Be yourself no matter what they say I'm an alien I'm a legal alien I'm an Englishman in New York I'm an alien I'm a legal alien I'm an Englishman in New York History Will Teach Us Nothing
If we seek solace in the prisons of the distant past Security in human systems we're told will always always last Emotions are the sail and blind faith is the mast Without the breath of real freedom we're getting nowhere fast If God is dead and an actor plays his part His words of fear will find a place in your heart Without the voice of reason every faith is its own curse Without freedom from the past things can only get worse Sooner or later just like the world first day Sooner or later we learn to throw the past away Sooner or later just like the world first day Sooner or later we learn to throw the past away Sooner or later we learn to throw the past away History will teach us nothing History will teach us nothing Our written history is a catalogue of crime The sordid and the powerful, the architects of time The mother of invention, the oppression of the mild The constant fear of scarcity, aggression as its child Sooner or later Sooner or later Sooner or later Sooner or later Convince an enemy, convince him that he's wrong Is to win a bloodless battle where victory is long A simple act of faith In reason over might To blow up his children will only prove him right History will teach us nothing Sooner or later just like the world first day Sooner or later we learn to throw the past away Sooner or later just like the world first day Sooner or later we learn to throw the past away Sooner or later we learn to throw the past away History will teach us nothing History will teach us nothing Know your human rights Be what you come here for Know your human rights Be what you come here for Know your human rights Be what you come here for Know your human rights Be what you come here for They Dance Alone (Cueca Solo)
Why are these women here dancing on their own? Why is there this sadness in their eyes? Why are the soldiers here Their faces fixed like stone? I can't see what it is they despise They're dancing with the missing They're dancing with the dead They dance with the invisible ones Their anguish is unsaid They're dancing with their fathers They're dancing with their sons They're dancing with their husbands They dance alone They dance alone It's the only form of protest they're allowed I've seen their silent faces scream so loud If they were to speak these words they'd go missing too Another woman on the torture table what else can they do They're dancing with the missing They're dancing with the dead They dance with the invisible ones Their anguish is unsaid They're dancing with their fathers They're dancing with their sons They're dancing with their husbands They dance alone They dance alone One day we'll dance on their graves One day we'll sing our freedom One day we'll laugh in our joy And we'll dance One day we'll dance on their graves One day we'll sing our freedom One day we'll laugh in our joy And we'll dance Ellas danzan con los desaparecidos Ellas danzan con los muertos Ellas danzan con amores invisibles Ellas danzan con silenciosa angustia Danzan con sus padres Danzan con sus hijos Danzan con sus esposos Ellas danzan solas Danzan solas Hey Mr. Pinochet You've sown a bitter crop It's foreign money that supports you One day the money's going to stop No wages for your torturers No budget for your guns Can you think of your own mother Dancin' with her invisible son They're dancing with the missing They're dancing with the dead They dance with the invisible ones Their anguish is unsaid They're dancing with their fathers They're dancing with their sons They're dancing with their husbands They dance alone They dance alone Fragile
If blood will flow when flesh and steel are one Drying in the colour of the evening sun Tomorrow's rain will wash the stains away But something in our minds will always stay Perhaps this final act was meant To clinch a lifetime's argument That nothing comes from violence and nothing ever could For all those born beneath an angry star Lest we forget how fragile we are On and on the rain will fall Like tears from a star like tears from a star On and on the rain will say How fragile we are how fragile we are On and on the rain will fall Like tears from a star like tears from a star On and on the rain will say How fragile we are how fragile we are How fragile we are how fragile we are We'll Be Together
I see me with you and all the things you do Keep turning round and round in my mind Forget the weather we should always be together And any other thought is unkind To have you with me I would swim the seven seas To have you as my guide and my light My love is a flame that burns in your name We'll be together We'll be together tonight We'll be together, yeah We'll be together, yeah We'll be together, yeah I see you with me and all I want to be Is dancing here with you in my arms Forget the weather we should always be together I'll always be a slave to your charms To have you with me I would swim the seven seas To have you as the guide in my life My love is a flame that burns in your name We'll be together We'll be together We'll be together, yeah We'll be together, yeah We'll be together, yeah Call me baby. You can call me anything you want Call me baby Call me Just call me We'll be together, yeah We'll be together, yeah I see you with me and baby makes three I see me with you and all the things we do Forget the weather we should always be together I need you as my guide and my light My love is the flame that burns in your name We'll be together We'll be together tonight Straight To My Heart
Well in a hundred years from now They will attempt to tell us how A scientific means to bliss Will supercede the human kiss A sub atomic chain Will maybe galvanize the brain A biochemic trance Will eliminate romance But why ever should we care When there are arrows in the air Formed by lovers' ancient art That go straight to my heart A future sugar coated pill Would give our lovers time to kill I think they're working far too much For the redundancy of touch But what will make me yours Are a million deadly spores Formed by lovers' ancient art That go straight to my heart Come into my door Be the light of my life Come into my door You'll never have to sweep the floor Come into my door Be the light of my life Come into my door Come and be my wife I'll be true. To no one but you If it's a future world we fear We have tomorrow's seeds right here For you can hold them in your hand Or let them fall into the sand But if our love is pure The only thing of which we're sure Then you can play your part And go straight to my heart If I should seek immunity And love you with impunity Then the only thing to do Is for me to pledge myself to you But they only dealt one card So for me it is not hard You're the bright star in my chart You go straight to my heart Come into my door Be the light of my life Come into my door You'll never have to sweep the floor Come into my door Be the light of my life Come into my door Come and be my wife I'll be true. To no one but you Rock Steady
Saw an ad in the newspaper that caught my eye I said to my baby this sounds like the ticket for you and I It said volunteers wanted for a very special trip To commune with Mother Nature on a big wooden ship We took a taxi to the river in case any places were free There was an old guy with a beard And every kind of creature as far as the eye could see This old guy was the boss, he said, "I won't tell you no lie But there's more to this journey than is apparent to the eye" He said he'd heard God's message on the radio It was going to rain forever and he'd told him to go "I'll protect you all don't worry I'll be father to you all I'll save two of every animal, no matter how small But I'll need some assistants to look after the zoo I can't see nobody better so you'll just have to do" I said, "Just tell me something before it's too late and we're gone I mean just how safe is this boat we'll be on?" "It's Rock steady Rock steady Rock steady Rock steady Rock steady Rock steady Rock steady Rock steady" It rained for forty days and forty long nights I'd never seen rain like it and it looked like our old friend Was being proved right We had no time to worry though there was just too much to do Between the signified monkey and the kangaroo We had to wash all the animals we had to feed them too We were merely human slaves in a big floating zoo She said, "Hey baby I don't mean to be flip But it seems this old man is on some power trip" I said, "No, no sugar you must be wrong I mean look at the size of this boat we're on. We're as safe as houses, as safe as mother's milk He's as cool as November and as smooth as China silk He's God's best friend, he's got a seat on the board And life may be tough but we're sailing with the lord." Rock steady Rock steady Rock steady Rock steady Rock steady Rock steady Rock steady Rock steady Woke up this morning and something had changed Like a room in my house had just been rearranged She said, "It's stopped raining and I know the guy's kind But if we stay here much longer I'm gonna lose my mind." So we said we had a mission for his favorite dove To see if there was any mercy from this great God above So to find dry land, away the white bird flew We didn't need no country just a rock would do When the dove came back to us he threw down a twig It was manna from heaven and meant we could blow this gig "But the rock's too small," he said, "can't you see?" I said, "It's just perfect for her, it's perfect for me." Rock steady Rock steady Rock steady Rock steady Rock steady Rock steady Rock steady Rock steady Rock steady Rock steady Rock steady Rock steady Sister Moon
Sister moon will be my guide In your blue blue shadows I would hide All good people asleep tonight I'm all by myself in your silver light I would gaze at your face the whole night through I'd go out of my mind, but for you Lying in a mother's arms The primal root of a woman's charms I'm a stranger to the sun My eyes are too weak How cold is a heart When it's warmth that he seeks? You watch every night, you don't care what I do I'd go out of my mind, but for you I'd go out of my mind, but for you My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun My hunger for her explains everything I've done To howl at the moon the whole night through And they really don't care if I do I'd go out of my mind, but for you Sister Moon Little Wing
Well, she's walking through the clouds with a circus mind that's running wild. Butterflies and zebras and moonbeams and fairy tales, That's all she ever thinks about... Riding the wind. When I'm sad she comes to me with a thousand smiles she gives to me free It's alright, she says, it's alright, Take anything you want from me, anything, Fly on, little wing
