The American

Here comes the shake
The speed-decade wake
I see you wake
Shake
Fit on those overalls
What do you know about this world anyway
I see a man
With an airfield plan
I caught a boy fall out of the sky
What do you know about this world anyway

Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Amer-American
In collective fame
Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Amer-American
Nassau club day
Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Amer-American
Across a curved earth
In collective fame
Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Amer-American
The eventful work-outs
Nassau club days
Here comes the flag
I'm walking in the black

Every time you tough this place
It feels like sin
Every time the handshake starts
The face draws thin
What do you know about this world anyway
Here comes the son
The american son
In here the son shines so bright
Eyes blind
What do you know about this world anyway

Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Amer-American
The eventful workouts
Nassau club days
Here comes the flag
Hand-shake
This world.....

20th Century Promised Land

Stories came like the wind
Joining every bridge in the wind
Ringing out footsteps
Calling out stell-heels
I give voice
I give breath
Count out evenings and stars
How fast can these things move on
Taking roots back to yourself
And the reason for fear was moving on
And on

Some time
Great times
Troubled time
Fire for the times
Ringing out footsteps
Calling out steel-heels

Promised land
Great times in commotion
Here come every day
It only lasts an hour
Unhappy the land that has no heroes
No! Unhappy the land that needs heroes

And the reason for fear was moving on
The speed of light was moving on
Don't cry
Tears are only wasted waters
Some say God her only loves the proud
Be damned on luck
But not dishearted
Nothing to prove
And nothing to present
I give voice
I give breath
Catching winds in my hand
My hand

Some times
Great times
Catching wind in my hand
My hand
Some times
Great times
Troubled times
Fire for the times
Ringing out footsteps
Calling out steel-heels

Promised land
Great times in commotion
Here comes every dat
It only lasts an hour
Unhappy the land that has no heroes
No! Unhappy the land that needs heroes

I'll call you out
I'll scream you out
And I don't care if you're afraid
When city sounds invade the air

Catch the wind in their hands
Promised land
Catch the wind in their hands
Promised lands
Promised lands
Promised lands
Great times in commotion

Wonderful In Young Life

Wonderful In Young Life
Two weeks in another town
Sending shivers along in the spine
Of your friends when they call
Here she comes
The wild wind blows
In rhythms of season
In young life and reasons
Deceiving and pleasing to some
Wild girls wild
In epic beauty wild
Surviving these changes
In paces and faces
In free wonder
Free wonder
Free wonder style

Wonderful
Little Egypt eyes
Wonderful
And the world can't wait
Wonderful
And the beat's white hot
Wonderful

Dream dream dream
It's the eighties youthful theme
Loving the city
A theme for great cities
And loved ones
And love
Memorize
A crowded swallow skies
Whatever the weather
The climate is perfect for
So young
And so young in life
An angel day
Angels coming your way
Screaming food fortune
And follow
And look at the memories
That are stuck in our eyes

Wonderful
Little Egypt eyes
Wonderful
And the world can't wait
Wonderful
Celebrate soul day
Wonderful

Wonderful In Young Life
Two weeks in another town
Sending shivers along in the spine
Of your friends when they call
Here she comes
The wild wind blows
In rhythms of season
In young life and reasons
Deceiving and pleasing to some
Wild girls wild
In epic beauty wild
Surviving these changes
In paces and faces
In free wonder
Free wonder
Free wonder style

Wonderful
Little Egypt eyes
Celebrating soul day
Wonderful
And the beat's white hot
Wonderful

God I'm singing memories
Hey I'm singing memories
Look I'm singing memories

Here she comes - wonderful

Careful In Career

Careful In Career
Take care
I take care
It's a shame
To go away
It's a shame to go away
It's a shame
To die already

Looking at you
Looking in through at me
Pouring X years of life
Pouring in ecstasy
Performance or ecstasy
I'm looking at you
Looking in through at me
I've come so far already
I've come so far already
So far
I've come so far

Careful In Career
Take care
I take care
I see the lodgers
They are walking
Hands over my eyes
I see you yawning
Shambling
Drugged up by the heat and so

Looking at you
Looking in through at me
Pouring X years of life
Pouring in ecstasy
In performance or in ecstasy
I'm looking at you
Looking in through at me
I've come so far already
I've come so far already

It's a shame
Looking at you
Looking in through at me
All in ecstasy
I've come so far already
All in ecstasy
I've come so far already
All in ecstasy
I've come so far already
I've come so far
I've come so far
It's a shame
It's a shame
Looking at you
Looking in through at me

Seventy Cities As Love Brings The Fall

He wants the world
Screams everything
Follows in love
Love brings the fall
She is a country
Feel for life
Follows in love
Love brings the fall

First tear forms in the right eye
This is the eye that's crying first
First tear forms in the right eye
This is the eye that's crying first

Going somewhere
Getting someplace
Going somewhere
Follows in love
Love brings the fall
Going somewhere
Getting someplace
Going somewhere
Follows in love
Love brings the fall
Going somewhere
Getting someplace
Going somewhere
Follows in love

Cities heavy
Moving breathing
Follows in love
Love brings the fall
The need to draw blood somehow
Follows in love
Love brings the fall
Breath is in
Breath is out
I'm not seeing anything
I see too much

When the otherside of midnight calls
Remind me I'm glad to be here
First tear forms in the right eye
This is the eye that's crying first

In seventy cities
In seventy cities
Oh no oh no oh no no no
Here it comes Here it comes
Here it comes
Oh no
