In Trance As Mission

For just one moment in time
I hear the holy back beat
Events and casual affairs
Just what is moving on
And what is going on
In dream a dream a
Courage of dreams
In trance as mission
Trans-American
Moving on

For just one moment in time
I want to walk where it is
Sustain a stature in life
Here comes a new type of light
Just what is going on
What is moving on
Dream a dream a
Trance as you dream
In trance as mssion
Trans-American
Just what is going on
What is moving on

For just one moment in time
Just one moment in time
Dream a dream a
Courage of dreams
In trance as mission
Trans-American
Something crashing into my life

Something crashing against white rocks
No calm to my hand
Here comes my hand
City up on my mind
What is going on
You've got to move on
Dream a dream a
Courage of dreams
In trance as mission
Trans-American
Living lives out of dust
Dream a dream a
Living lives

Walk on in light
I want to walk
My hands are grabbing at air
I want to walk
Dream a dream a
Courage of dreams
In trance as mission
In trance in trance
Trans-American

Stand by the statue in fog
Events and casual affairs
I want to walk
Heat of the day
Heat of the day....

Sweat In Bullet

Airmobility
Dressability
Tranquil
You'll never meet again
Eyes small
Take another fine walk
Expose
Society can gain
Great face
White soul
Great place
Then say goodbye
You take a walk
Another fine walk
Mission
Motion

Rolling and tumbling
Ambition in motion
Rolloing and tumbling
She's sweating bullets
Grow in size
Grow in fame
Grow more
Take more
Uncontrollable
Unworkable

Airmobility
Dressability
Tranquil
You'll never meet again
Eyes small
Take another fine walk
Expose
Society can gain
Great face
White soul
Great place
Then say goodbye
You take a walk
Another fine walk
Mission
Motion

Rolling and tumbling
Ambition in motion
Rolloing and tumbling
She's sweating bullets
Grow in size
Grow in fame
Grow more
Take more
Uncontrollable
Unworkable

Airmobility
Dressability
C'est la vie
Inside
Your doing things
Making face
Making moves
You'll never do again
Great face
White soul
Great shame
Poison in your hand
Take a walk
Take another fine walk
Mission
Motion

Rolling and tumbling...

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

Boys From Brazil

Boys From Brazil
Champagne
Desert Shore
Celebrate
Memorize
Associate lips with the poor
Eyes of the world on you

Boys From Brazil
Champagne
Desert Shore

What can you say
About anything lost now
What can you say
About stolen things too
Anything Stolen
Something is lost now
What can you say
And how fast can things move

Boys from Brazil
Fortune of bird in flight
Tycoons and whirlwind
Brings a hush on lover's voice
Eyes of the world on you

Boys from Brazil
Champagne
Desert shore

Babies cannot manage
Lust and Ambition
Babies only speak and ingenious talk
Badies don't remember
Chance or up in shame
Badies cannot manage crocodiles

Boys from Brazil
Gentleman and adventure
Killing Hearts and gentle life
Spending money in capitals
Eyes of the world on you

Not just the boy that's crying wolf now
Someone else is screaming up at our door
Not just a body that's crying wolf now
Eyes of the world on you

Taking tracks back
Slip a while back
In forward moves
Boys taking tracks back
Slip a while
Forward moves forward moves
Slip a while

Love Song

In coats of many colour
Reptile man drop
Stay below it
Stay below it
Stay below it
Stay below it
Temperature drop

America's a boyfriend
Untouched by flesh of hand
Heartbeat under
Heartbeat under
Heartbeat under
Heartbeat under
Some promised land

Love song
Love song
Love song
Love song

On and on and

On and on and

Flesh of heart
Heart of steel
So well so well
I cut my hair
Paint my face
Break a finger
Tell a lie
So well so well

America's a boyfriend
Untouched by flesh of hand
Stay below it
Stay below
In glory days that come and go
Some promised land

Love song
Love song
Love song
Love song

And on and on and
On and on and
On and on and

Stay below
Shout below
Flesh of heart
Heart of steel
Flesh of heart
Heart of steel
Flesh of heart
Heart of steel
Flesh of heart
Heart of steel
Love song
Love song
Love song
And love song

Stay below
Shout below
In glory days that come and go
Stay below
Shout below
In glory days that come and go

Love song

On and on and
On and on and
On and on and
And on and on and

This Earth That You Walk Upon

What's your name
What's your nation
Sense of order
Sense of speed
Earth that you walk upon
Shakes his hand
Turns away
Turns his back and walks away
Earth that you walk upon
Earth that you walk upon

What's your name
What's your nation
Sense of order
Sense of speed

Earth that you walk upon
Passing on and on
Earth that you walk upon

Screaming edge of light
Shines so shines so hard
Earth that you walk upon
Turning on

Sons And Fascination

Summer rains are here
Savaged beauty life
Falling here from grace
Sister feeling call
Cruising land to land
No faith no creed no soul
Half a world away
Beauty sleeps in time
Sound and fury play

Ma son warm land semi-monde
Ma son warm land semi-monde

Cry because you're young
Governments and gifts
Hearts are in our mouths
Thank you for the voice
Thank you for the eyes
Thank you for the good times
Golden guns and cars
Styles and motorcades
In screaming beauty days

Ma son warm land semi-monde
Ma son warm land semi-monde

Only winds that twist
When white money calls
Falling here from grace
White-eye movement trust
Parades are leaving town
When boys of Venice call
In all stations trust
In all stations soul
Sons and fascination

Ma son warm lands semi-monde
Ma son warm lands semi-monde

Seeing Out The Angel

Voice leading to voices
Last song that the land sings
In colourful breathless emotional sea
Leaving us in this way

Seeing out the angel
From the shadow of a day
That stands alone and crying young
Singing fascination
For the twist in anxious days
That stand alone and crying young
See out the angels
For the rescue pools of life
That stand alone and crying young

Rescue by the first light
Receiving us with these tears
Feeling your gaze in the back of my eyes
Leaving worlds this way

In voice leading to voices
Last song that the land sings
In colourful breathless emotional sea
Leaving us this way

Seeing out the angels
Singing fascination...
