SOMETHING SENDS ME TO SLEEP

The times you spent there
I thought you weren't coming back
They moved those stones
I don't know how
I saw what Ezekiel saw
They said 'are you?'
I said 'I might'
We know it's wrong but
But hell it's right

I told you so I think you knew
Just what it is we're coming to
I told you so believe me now
You cannot see what I can see
I let you down but you're
Getting me higher and higher
It's hard to take but you're
Three hundred years old today
By the time you've traced me

I'll be miles away
I think you know why
I'm not staying here
I told you so

In the green light of your schemes
Something sends me to sleep
I don't know what it is
I don't know what it is

You should be watching me
I've been asleep for years
It's just that we preserve
It's no big deal you know
I couldn't help realizing
That the French are rising
There'll be an uprising
On the skies' horizon


TRAILS OF COLOUR DISSOLVE

I know a man and his friend
and I know them well
I think they're kind of strange
but it's hard to tell
They've got a box full of secrets
that they're giving away
I received a tape
and I heard it play

[Chorus]
Trails of colour dissolve
in your mind
The gates of evil
the paths we find
You're so self assured
it's just a game you play
And we're not gonna do a thing that they say

Kind of strange
kind of crazy
kind of out of touch
Into something that's nothing
if nothing's that much
Oh if nothing's that much
to you
Why try to hide
the things that are true
Wouldn't it be
fair to say
That you're not gonna do a thing that they say
I know a man and his friend
and I know them well
I think they're kind of strange
but it's hard to tell

[Chorus]

DISMANTLED KING IS OFF THE THRONE

I was feeling desperate
unable to decide
Between a life of misery
or awful suicide
Then it came to rest by me
like a cross that's hard to bear
Put death in my hands
and I will play with it for sure

[Chorus]
Dismantled king is off the throne
there's nothing left
If you stand on your head too long
then you'll just run out of breath
You're trying hard
but that's too bad
Because your voice is always sad

I was feeling out of touch
unable to control
My mind was like a theatre
It was playing ten different roles
And I believed all the locked-up people
held the key to the world
A land of heads in chained-in boxes
just trying to be heard

[Chorus]


PENELOPE TREE

Am C
I didn't want the world to know
That sunlight bathed the golden glow
Em Am
Loneliness is like a disease
Triggers off my sense of unease
I was lonely until I found the reason
Em Am C
the reason was
Em D C
me...
Em
Oh, Penelope Tree
Why don't you just enter the night
why don't you just do what you like
Loneliness and all that heartache
That's something I just can't take
You've got your head on back to front
that's easy, so easy for me...
Oh that's easy for me...
You know that's easy for me...
Oh, Penelope Tree
Hey tell me why are you so scared
It's like the beginning go there
Gold mine trash seeks brave dark warrior
What are we doing
Why are we here
Why must we die?
Oh no no no, that's easy, so easy for me...

You're trying to fool somebody, but you end up fooling yourself
You're reading from "The book of the dead"* but you don't know what it's about
I listened to you now maybe you'll listen to me
You're trying much to hard to make your world seem like a dream

You're stepping out of something
"Yeah, I'm stepping out of line"
Well stop making a movie of it
"Oh that's just my style"

Stop sitting around and thinking
Ain't gonna do no good
I tought your poetry
Wasn't saying what it should

You're stepping out of something
Sunlight Bathed the Golden Glow
Stop making a movie of it
Stop tellin' the things I know
Stop sitting around and thinking
You're gonna do no good
I tought your poetry was sometimes good

*A reference to the book of the dead of the ancient Egypt. In the "Strange Idols Pattern and Other Short Stories" version, he sings "You read from a season in hell", a reference to the french poet Arthur Rimbaud.


CRYSTALL BALL

I could be doing something new
Young fresh and exciting
name an eccentric thing you won't do
And so you wanted to be free
don't we all
What's past America
are we so scared we can't see

[Chorus]
And then you said that I had it all
Saw through your crystal ball
And saw me in depth
like I'd never seen myself before
You seemed to think that
there still was more
But it's that crystal ball
It knows me too well
and I don't know myself at all

Suppose someone said to you
your life's through
Or you've just got one more chance left to live
Which would you choose
You'd run to your mother to help you decide
We might as well all just stay in our rooms until we die

[Chorus]

FORTUNE

And nothing seems to matter
when I'm on your side
I'm breaking my heart
then you lost your pride

If it all gets too much
there's things you can do
to end it all now
or see it all through

And tell me no stories
There's things to be said
To escape with a fortune
your blood'll be spared

And wisdom is your virtue
I heard them all scream
Led away to their own fates
Believe in your dreams

Maybe I'm lame, I fight for what's right
Contradictions,on the day of your voice
I need you,
oh, and those ghastly terms, a special fear
and it's me and a friend left in a room
just me and a friend
(out of this place now! or else we're never gonna get out of here)
Just left in a room,
that's all
