THE DAY THE RAIN CAME DOWN

(I remember) trains and boats and planes
and people from the past
A - G - A - G

always making promises you know things that'll never last
A - G - A - G

and fever broke when the storms took hold
and morale was at an all time low
A - G - A - G

and you were staying up 'till dawn reading Crowley and Allan Poe
A - G - A - G

and I was thinking back to the time when I was nine and
you were ten
Fmaj - Fmaj7 - G(Em) - G(Em)

you had a magic set that turned me into you then I said
Fmaj7 - Fmaj7 - G(em) - G(Em)

(I remember) trains and boats and planes
and people from the past
always making promises you know things that'll never last
and fever broke when the storms took hold
and morale was at an all time low
and you were staying up 'till dawn reading Crowley and Allan Poe
and I was thinking back to the time when I was nine and
you were ten
you had a magic set that turned me into you then I said
hey the day the rain came down that's the day you weren't around
I was lost in the woods one time and the sky was losing light
I was brave and sixteen then I thought well hell I'll stay all night
I took the sun from the sky and held it in my arms for a souvenir
the sound of ringing bells awoke me as the dawn was drawing near
and you were standing there casting spells like they grow on trees
I've seen it all
and for your next trick maybe you could tell me who said
hey the day the rain came down

SCARLET SERVANTS

If I wanted what was yours
then I would surely want what's mine
you take it all the time and then
something blows up and my head's
full of ideas like a cloak of evil
or the message unclear like a
courtroom jester when the king says
the waiters wait in heir rooms
the chauffers dancing doom
the waiters wait in their rooms
the prophets forecast gloom
and the stars are out tonight
no one knows don't let them know
and the sky is filled with light and then
the night exploded yeah somethin's
happening here like a sky of thunder
and a message unclear like a blown-
out candle when the daylight draws near


I DON'T KNOW WICH WAY TO TURN

I don't know which way to turn
all the lessons I have learned are
meaningless because I'm free to
deceive all who believed I deliver
best when I'm deprived of all the
things I need that's just me can't
you see that I despis integrity
and if it hurts to be so sure and
if you're not as sure then surely
you should change your point of view
and if I was to say let's change then
we would change today because change
is just a phase we all go through
when I'm up there on the stage I just hide my eyes and pray that
soon enough the show will end
why do I go through this hell
each time I question myself but
next night I'm up there again
its the same as real life I want to
end that as well and if it's wrong
then it's right to me because I can see
the goodness in the things you're
going to do it's not a case of what is
right or wrong it's just as long as
you can see what we were having to do

BLACK SHIP IN THE HARBOUR

I was a pauper
I was second class
I was a moment
that quickly passed
I was a gambler gambled on you
rain shone and the sun poured through
wind whistled a whispered word it was true
the world is a stage that revolves around you
how are you feeling
on this broken day
where are you heading
I heard you lost your way
how is your mind is it still confused
has anyone told you you're being used
you're fighting a battle that you're going to lose
the world was a stage that revolved around you
I said to the blazing moon
I want to be what I want to be
you said that your aim in life
was o break through and be free
you bought me a diamond
what's that for
I stole you some money
because I thought you were poor
yes I was a gambler gambled on you
rain shone and the sun poured through
wind whistled a whispered word it was true
want something for nothing lady that's you


CASPIAN SEE

I will not stop until I've
got everything that I need
somesay it's honesty
but I believe it's only greed
and if you listen to what
I'm saying everyday
it must be honesty
but I'm not that sure anyway
take a look around
what are we coming to
we can stop it now
I do not think that we will
a new son [sun?]will arise
and I will be there to see
a sleeping signal shoots off
bright fire awakens me
a moonlit castle slips
and I know that isn't real
to be a fantasy
is hardly what I'd term ideal
you've got it wong
you see but do you want to see
move in closer now
do you believe in reality
I stand alone and my
only task is to succeed
somesay I've heard all that but
you aint heard that from me
and if I'm what you want then
come and take this call
for we can stop ll that
we are all one after all
take a look around
what are we coming to
we can stop it now
do we really want to
