Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – The World Has Gone Insane lyrics

JEKYLL
The world has gone insane!
And parasites are eating at my brain!
And nothing is the way it was before!
A pack o’ wolves is howling at my door!
I’m living in a non-stop nightmare!
Dead men’s dreams!
Filled with screaming pain!
Hurling me to mad extremes
In a world that’s gone insane!

The world has lost its head!
And every evil hour is filled with dread!
I’m floating on a lake – But upside down!
And when I try to breathe, I start to drown!
I cannot speak
As nameless ghosts and faceless ghouls
Bid me join the dead!
No one tells these gruesome fools
That the world has lost its head!

Fiendish creatures leave their graves to taunt me!
Old friends risen from the dead to haunt me!
God forsaken images that daunt me
Drowning in an endless flood of blood!

The world has lost its mind!
And everywhere I turn, I fear I’ll find
Some nightmare even worse than those I see!
Satanic demons closing in on me!
How can it be
That even though they see my plight,
Everyone is blind!
Night is day and day is night
In a world that’s lost its mind!
The world has gone berserk!
And hiding in the murk, new monsters lurk!
I see a sea of snakes upon the floor!
I see the reaper grinning at my door!
I scream in silence!

Bad is good and good is bad!
Sacred if profane!
And it’s wiser to be mad…

HYDE
In a world that’s gone insane!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – The Wedding Reception lyrics

JEKYLL
Mrs. Jekyll, may I have this dance?

LISA
Dr. Jekyll, you may have every dance.

UTTERSON
Henry, what is it?

JEKYLL
Don’t make a fuss… terrible pain… get me out of here… need to breathe.

UTTERSON
Oh, my God!

JEKYLL
Oh, God, what now?
Oh God, not now!
Help me somehow!
Please take the pain away!

Feel it fill me!
This will kill me!
Please, God, will me
Somehow to fight, I pray!

Oh, God, help me!
God have mercy!
Don’t let her see!
Not on our wedding day!

LISA
Henry?

HYDE
There is no Henry!… Only Hyde!

STRIDE
Look at this monster, Lisa!

HYDE
And what would you have done with her, Stride?
Put her in one of your Camden Town w****houses and rented her out a shilling a time?

STRIDE
D*** you, Jekyll – enough!

HYDE
Enough, indeed! End-of-game!
We seem to be married, my love!
Ready for our bridal bed, are you?

UTTERSON
Henry, stay back! Don’t touch her! I beg you – stop! Stop now!

LISA
Henry! Oh God Henry …
Henry, it’s me! If this is you, show me!

UTTERSON
Lisa, no! Stay back!
SIR DANVERS
No! Stop him!

HYDE
Stay! Or she dies!

LISA
Henry, I know you don’t want to hurt me! I know you can hear me… Let me go…
Henry, please… For us… Let me go… please…

JEKYLL
Do it, John. I beg you. Set me free.

I can’t, Henry!

JEKYLL
We promised, remember?

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – The Girls Of The Night lyrics

NELLIE
We’re the pleasures of the nighttime that fade at dawn,
Selling treasures of the nighttime til night is gone.
And then when the party’s over, everybody’s gone away,
We stare at an empty day – what is there to do or say?
Nighttime is where we live,
Night is when we give everything we have to give.
Most lovers can rejoice, we don’t have a choice,
We just know we have to give.
That’s why the day can never be bright
For the girls of the night.

LUCY
Somehow I know there’s a someday that’s just for me.
Everybody has a someday – so why not me?

NELLIE
Lucy, do you really need to fill your heart with empty dreams?
You’ll always be what you are – stop chasing that distant star!

BOTH
Nighttime is where we live,
Night is when we give everything we have to give.
Most lovers can rejoice, we don’t have a choice,
We just know we have to give.
That’s why the day can never be bright
For the girls of the night.

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – The Engagement Party lyrics

[SIR DANVERS]
My dear Simon
You’re so gracious
To wish Lisa and Henry both well

[STRIDE]
Dear Sir Danvers
As you know, Sir
I wish Lisa the sun and the moon
But I have to confess that I wish Henry Jekyll in hell!

[UTTERSON]
(spoken) Henry, at last. What could possibly be more important than your own engagement party?

[JEKYLL]
John, I am close to a breakthrough discovery!
Something spectacular, something sublime!
Finally, a light in the darkness has come to me!
Now it is only a matter of time!

[DR HASTIE LANYON]
Henry Jekyll, you’re a devil
You have robbed us of London’s most lovely girl

[MR RICHARD ENFIELD]
I could turn to drink when I stop to think
Lisa’s marrying a doctor instead of an earl

[BOTH]
Poor girl!

[STRIDE ]
Doctor Jekyll, may I be the first to wish
You and your bride-to-be
Peace and prosperity?

[JEKYLL]
Mr. Stride, it’s most civil of you
To say that, as you do
With such patent sincerity!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – Take Me As I Am lyrics

[JEKYLL]
Sometimes I see
Past the horizon
Sure of my way
Where I am going
But where’s the prize
I have my eyes on?
Where?
There is just no knowing!

And when despair
Tears me in two
Who can I turn to but you?
You know who I am
Take me as I am

[LISA]
Look in my eyes
Who do you see there?
Someone you know
Or just a stranger?
If you are wise
You will see me there
Love is the only danger

Love meaning me
Love meaning you
We’ll make our one dream come true
You know who I am
Take me as I am

[JEKYLL & LISA]
Though fate won’t always do
What we desire
Still we can set
The world on fire!

Give me your hand
Give me your heart

[JEKYLL]
Swear to me we’ll never part
You know who I am

[LISA]
You know who I am

[JEKYLL]
This is who I am

[LISA]
This is who I am

[JEKYLL & LISA]
Take me as I am

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – Sympathy, Tenderness lyrics

LUCY
Sympathy, tenderness,
Warm as the summer
Offer me their embrace.
Friendliness, gentleness,
Strangers to my life –
They are there in his face.

Goodness and sweetness
And kindness
Abound in this place.

I am in love with
The things that I see in his face.
It’s a memory I know, time
Will never erase!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – Streak Of Madness lyrics

JEKYLL
September 14th. 5:00 am. This is a strange, new, sweet sensation.
I am younger. lighter, happier in body and soul – twice as alive and tenfold more wicked – which intoxicates and delights me like wine – adding fearful new hardships to my desperate battle for success.
September 20th. 10:50 am. The experiments are now in their second week. The transformations are beyond imagining. Unspeakable nightmares besiege my senses. The most racking pains, and a horror of the spirit that exceeds all dreams of death.

September 25th. 8:00 pm. I have radically altered the balance of the formula, to contain and overcome the powerful and darker forces at work inside me. I am aware of my peril, and the need to control Hyde’s evil influence, which disappears within me like a stain of breath upon a mirror. He has found the perfect hiding place…

What streak of madness lies inside of me?
What is the truth my fears conceal?
What evil force makes Edward Hyde of me?
What darker side of me does this reveal?

Am I the man that I appear to be?
Or am I someone I don’t know?
Is there some monster drawing near to me?
Becoming clear to see?
Will what I fear to be be so?
What is this strange obsession
That’s tearing me apart?
Some strange deranged expression
Of what’s in my heart?
This is a deadly game I have to win!
This is a fight I dare not lose!
I have an adversary steeped in sin
Who wages war within
In ways I can’t begin to use…

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – Transformation lyrics

JEKYLL
September 13th. 11:56 pm. I have started this alone… and I must finish it alone.
There is no longer a choice… I know that I must use myself as the subject of the experiment.
No, there is no choice!
I must put aside the fears I feel inside
There’s no place to hide.
So it comes to this
One last final chance that only I can take
Now everything I’ve fought for is at stake!

Like a warning light, glimmering in red,
Like crimson bloodshed, shimmering in red,
Beautiful and strange,
See the colours change before my eyes!
See how they dance and they sparkle
Like diamonds at night …
Leading out of the darkness and into the light!

11:58 pm. Consumed 10 centiliters of Formula HJ 7. Salty, bitter taste. Stings the tongue.
Warm in the gullet. Heat spreading strongly through my veins. A slight feeling of euphoria.
Light-headedness. No noticeable behavioral differences.

I must be wise,
I must try to a***yze each change in me,
Everything I see.
How will it be?
Will I see the world through different eyes?

Now the die is cast – nothing left to do,
Time alone can prove my theories true.
Show the world …

My God! – What’s this?

Something is happening – I can’t explain –
Something inside me, a breathtaking pain,
Devours and consumes me
And drives me insane!
Suddenly – uncontrolled –
Something is taking hold
Suddenly – agony –
Filling me – killing me!
Suddenly – out of breath –
What is this – is this death?

Suddenly – look at me!
Can it be?
Who is this creature that I see?!

HYDE
Free!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – This Is The Moment lyrics

[JEKYLL]
This the moment
This is the day
When I send all my doubts
And demons on their way
Every endeavor I have made ever
Is coming into play
Is here and now today

This is the moment
This is the time
When the momentum and the moment
Are in rhyme
Give me this moment
This precious chance
I’ll gather up my past
And make some sense at last

This is the moment
When all I’ve done
All of the dreaming
Scheming and screaming
Become one
This is the day
See it sparkle and shine
When all I’ve lived for
Becomes mine

For all these years
I’ve faced the world alone
And now the time has come
To prove to them I made it
On my own

This is the moment
My final test
Destiny beckoned
I never reckoned second best
I won’t look down
I must not fall
This is the moment
The sweetest moment
Of them all

This is the moment
Damn all the odds
This day or never
I’ll sit forever with the gods
When I look back
I will always recall
Moment for moment
This was the moment
The greatest moment
Of them all

Papa Roach – Born For Greatness lyrics

[Verse 1]
I am a man at war,
And I am fighting for
All of the broken people,
All of the people thrown overboard.
They always tried to shame us,
But they don’t speak the language.
No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless,
We were born for greatness.

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, somebody sound the alarm,
Oh, a fire was set in the dark.
Oh, it’s time that you know,
No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless,
We were born for greatness.

[Chorus]
It doesn’t matter if the world has gone mad,
If we just hold on, if we just hold on, yeah,
The sky is falling and the world has gone mad,
And we sing our songs, and we just hold on, yeah.
So if you’re running, stop running,
One life, one chance, start living.
Sing it louder just to let the world know,
No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless,
We were born for greatness.

[Post-Chorus]
We’re not nameless, we’re not faceless,
We were born for greatness.
We’re not nameless, we’re not faceless,
We were born for greatness.

[Verse 2]
They say that I’m reckless,
Because I’m relentless.
They spit on my face, and curse on my name,
They’re taking my life in vengeance.
Yeah, you can try and blame us,
And try to take what’s sacred,
But we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless,
We were born for greatness.

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, somebody sound the alarm,
Oh, a fire was set in the dark.
Oh, it’s time that you know,
No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless,
We were born for greatness.

[Chorus]
It doesn’t matter if the world has gone mad,
If we just hold on, if we just hold on, yeah,
The sky is falling and the world has gone mad,
And we sing our songs, and we just hold on, yeah.
So if you’re running, stop running,
One life, one chance, start living.
Sing it louder just to let the world know,
No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless,
We were born for greatness.

[Post-Chorus]
We’re not nameless, we’re not faceless,
We were born for greatness.
We’re not nameless, we’re not faceless,
We were born for greatness.

[Hook]
Somebody sound the alarm,
It’s time that you know.

It doesn’t matter if the world has gone mad,
If we just hold on, if we just hold on, yeah,
Sing it louder just to let the world know.

[Bridge]
No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless,
We were born for greatness!
No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless,
We were born for greatness!
No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless,
We were born for greatness!

[Outro]
We were born for greatness.
No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless,
We were born for greatness!

Another aimless day
[Amos]
Another useless night
[Candy]
I want peroxide hair
[Amos]
I want neon light
[Candy]
I’ve got a new life waiting, I can’t wait to begin it
[Candy & Amos]
The thing that gets me down with being young in this town
Is there’s no future in it
[Candy]
I want a fine perfume,
[Amos]
I want a blue Corvette
[Candy]
If there’s a slower death than living here and now
[Amos]
They haven’t found it yet
[Candy]
I need a man that knows, what I am really worth
[Amos]
Well I don’t give a damn about life after death
[Candy & Amos]
But I gotta get some proof that there’s a life after birth

[Chorus]
[Candy]
Tire tracks and broken hearts, that’s all were leaving behind
It doesn’t matter what we’re losing
It only matters what we’re going to find

Tire tracks and broken hearts. Lets get away from the past
So many ways to stay hungry baby, so many ways to go fast

[Verse 2]
[Candy]
I want a push up bra, I want some satin sheets
[Amos]
Oh give me some real rich food, I want some succulent treats
[Candy]

[Candy & Amos]
That I don’t wanna spend another minute alone

Tire tracks and broken hearts, that’s all were leaving behind
It doesn’t matter what we’re losing
It only matters what were going to find

[Verse 3]
[Candy]
Those good girl never know what they’re missing
But us bad girl almost always do
[Amos]
And what were missing most are the real good times

We were born going faster than the limits allow
I want em bad and I want em now
We were born going faster than the limits allow

[Chorus]
Tire tracks and broken hearts. Lets get away from the past
So many ways to stay hungry baby, so many ways to go fast

Tire tracks and broken hearts, that’s all were leaving behind
It doesn’t matter what we’re losing
It only matters what were going to find

Andrew Lloyd Webber – Whistle Down The Wind – The Vaults Of Heaven lyrics

[Full congregation]
The Keys to the vaults of heaven
May be buried somewhere in a prayer
The Keys to the vaults of heaven
May be heavy or lighter than air

Open up the vaults
Open up the vaults
We’ve got to find the keys

The nights have been growing darker
They’re darker now than sin
We’ll open the vaults of heaven
The treasures are there within

[Solo]
The keys to the vaults of heaven
May be seen in a pure child’s eyes
The keys to the vaults of heaven
May be heard in our desperate cries

[Solo & Children]
Open up the vaults
Open up the vaults
We’ve got to find the keys

The nights have been growing darker
Even darker now than sin
We’ll open the vaults of heaven
The glories are there within

[The Children]
One sweet day when the whole worlds ready
We’ll awake to a glorious sight

[Swallow & Children]
Our saviour returns to guide us
We’ll be gratefully blinded by light

[Full congregation]
We’ve got to find the keys
We’ve got to find the keys
To open up the vaults
The nights have been growing darker
So much darker now than sin
We’ll open the vaults of heaven
And the answers are there, within.

We’ve got to find the keys
We’ve got to find the keys
To open up the vaults
The nights have been growing darker
So much darker now than sin
We’ll open the vaults of heaven
And the answers are there, within.

[spoken]
“Our saviour will once again walk amongst us. He will return my friends. We
Have his promise. And those who fail to recognise him will burn in a fiery
Hell. Those who do see his glory will never be weak, nor sick, nor hungry, nor
Lonely again. No more pain, no more loss, no more sorrow”

This was a safe haven,
Now it’s gone, dangers on it’s way

Evil can spread out,
Like a stain, and darken all the day

Boundaries wont protect you,
Locks and bolts won’t work the way they should

For the sake of all the children,
Track it down, boot it out for good

They say he killed and killed,
No mercy, no remorse, no shame

They say he’ll strike again,
No fear and no hope and no end

This was a safe haven,
Bring it back make it that again

Andrew Lloyd Webber – Whistle Down The Wind – Off Ramp Exit To Paradise lyrics

[Candy]
Somebody told me there’s an off ramp exit to paradise
Only time will tell if there’s an off ramp exit to paradise
Going anywhere has gotta be heaven, just staying here has got to be hell
I’m getting out of this joint, I’ll be strong and alone
No regrets maybe one, maybe two or three
If I had it to do over again, I’d do it to him before he did it to me
If I had it to do over again, I’d do it to them before they did it to me
Somebody told me there’s an off ramp exit to paradise
If I had it to do over again, I’d do it to him before he did it to me

Andrew Lloyd Webber – Whistle Down The Wind – Wrestle With The Devil lyrics

[Earl]
You gotta be prepared to wrestle
Wrestle with the devil in a heartbeat
Before the moment is past
[Townspeople]
You gotta be prepared, you gotta be prepared
To wrestle with the devil in a heartbeat
Or it could be your very last
[Snake Preacher]

(Spoken)
And the Lord said “They shall take up serpents”, And those who believe will be saved. And those whose faith is weak will perish with the devil. Test your faith! Put your life in the hands of the Lord. Who amongst you will take up serpents?

You all know about the Devil, don’t ya, brethren, I bet he’s got you scared
Cause you can feel it in your hearts and bones, he’s in this very town
And he wants your souls now, you gotta be prepared
[Townspeople]
You gotta be prepared
[Snake Preacher]
You gotta be prepared, to wrestle with the devil in a heartbeat
Before the moment is past
You all know about the Devil, don’t ya, don’t ya
You don’t think that you’ll be spared
He’s gonna tempt you with a life of sin, tease you with his flashing grin
But we’ve got the lord here, (oh yes) we’ve got the truth now (oh yes)
Yes you’ve got the mighty, (oh yes) you’ve got to be prepared
[Townspeople]
No matter what you do, he’s coming after you
So wrestle with the devil till you break him
Until he’s gone from your head
You gotta face the test
[Snake Preacher]
The devil doesn’t rest
[Townspeople]
So wrestle with the devil till you take him, until he’s finally, cold and dead
[Snake Preacher]
He’s there in the reflections on the river skimming by
He’s there in the clouds as they blacken the sky
He’s there in your bedroom, He can crawl into your dreams
[Person 1]
He’s anything he want’s to be, but he’s never what he seems
[Person 2]
He’s there in the foreboding, you feel in your bones
[Person 3]
He’s there in the graveyard, chipping names on the stones
[Townspeople]
He’s there in your memories, turning good times into bad
He’s there in the future, that you wish you never had

No matter what you do, he’s coming after you
So wrestle with the devil till you break him
Until he’s gone from your head

You gotta be a success, the devil doesn’t rest
So wrestle with the devil till you break him
Until he’s finally cold and dead
[Snake Preacher]
You’ll see him in the movies, brother thinking about sex and guzzling gin
You’ll see him in the courthouse sister trying to make legal every horrible sin
You’ll see him in the churches brother, acting like he loves the lord above
You’ll see him in your families Sister! Better take a look at who you love
[Candy]
You all know about the Devil, don’t ya, don’t ya
You all know, he’s lying in wait
He’s lying in more ways than one, every time he uses you
Breaks a promise, and breaks your heart
And that’s why love turns to hate
Are you gonna save me Amos? One more chance to save my life
Show me that you care
Don’t you think it’s time that you grew up, such a gullible, stupid girl
A little Angel? a little tramp
Your secrets out and I don’t care
[Amos]
I swear I didn’t tell, I’d rather go to hell
I made a vow, you know I’d never break it
I’d never lie at all to you
[Candy]
How many goddam vows, have you taken up to now
Have you kept a single one? oh forget it
Your pathetic, and that’s the only truth

How can you be so blind? Didn’t anybody know?
The Devils been here all the time, he’s waiting
Playing, hide and seek
He’s up in Swallow’s barn, he’s dangerous and armed
He’s got a gun, he’s not afraid to use it
The killer is strong and you are all so weak
[Sheriff]
It’s time that this was over
[A Local]
Nerves are raw
[Townspeople]
Hearts begin to pound
[Sheriff]
Bring him in, hunt him down
[Sheriff & Townspeople]
A little bit of slaughter is justified to bring us back our town

Drown out all the rain
Light a patch of darkness
Treacherous and scary

Howl at the stars
Whisper when you’re sleeping

Send a flare up in the sky
Try to burn a torch
And try to build a bonfire

So whistle down the wind
For I have always been right there

Howl at the stars
Whisper when you’re sleeping

So whistle down the wind
For I have always been right there

Andrew Lloyd Webber – Whistle Down The Wind – When Children Rule The World lyrics

We’ve got to keep this secret, we gotta do this right
If we don’t screw up we could save his life
Then this could be the night, When children rule the world
This could be the night, the night, when children rule the world

Doves and kings and shepherds and wisemen came together,
Followed the star
They all gathered down in a manger, they came from so very far

Were glad it’s clear, our saviour is here
He’s gonna guard each boy and girl
No hunger or thirst, the last will be first
The night that children rule the world,
When children rule the world, tonight, when children rule the world

All our greatest wishes are granted, let us sing, let innocence reign
All our prayers are finally answered, blessed and free of all pain

Towers of fire, rise ever higher
Magical flags will be unfurled
To Jesus our god, the young are the strong
The night that children rule the world
When children rule the world, tonight, when children rule the world

Towers of fire, rise ever higher
Magical flags will be unfurled
To Jesus our god, the young are the strong
The night that children rule the world

When children rule the world, tonight, when children rule the world
When children rule the world, tonight, when children rule the world

Andrew Lloyd Webber – Whistle Down The Wind – Try Not To Be Afraid lyrics

[The Man]
Try not to be afraid, so many things can happen
Nothings ever quite as bad as it might appear
I’ll give you all I got, You know I can protect you
And try and stop you shedding even one more single tear

[Swallow]
Shelter from the storms

[The Man]
Refuge from the world outside

[Swallow]
Safety from the dangers

[The Man]
Escape from all the disappointments that time has passed

[Swallow & The Man]
Healing of the wounds, the banishing of nightmares

[The Man]
An end to endless tortured nights untroubled sleep at last

[The Man & Swallow]
This is the vow I’ve made, I’ll see it all come true now
And all you have to do for me, Try not to be afraid

[The Man]
I swear I’ll be with you, this promise that I’ve made you

[The Man & Swallow]
You will always be with me

[The Man]
Think of every thing you’ve got, try not to be afraid

[Swallow]
Try not to be afraid

[The Man & Swallow]
Try not to be afraid

Killing Grace – Crown Of Thorns lyrics

The ghost inside my home won’t leave me alone
Haunting every room
I can’t stop missing you
The words I never said
Laying in my bed it’s time to tell the truth
I can’t stop wanting you
I hear your melody deep inside of me
Nothing means more to me than you
If I could see your face again
If I could change everything
If we could be a family again
But all my life I’ve had to be strong, had to carry on
Had to hurt you and you’re not the only one
All my life I’ve cursed to be born, forced to be torn
Now I wear this crown of thorns
Wear this crown of thorns

All these memories come flooding back into me
You need to know the truth
I can’t stop missing you
Surrounded in this crowd my silence screams so loud
There’s nothing I can do, I can’t stop loving you
I hear your melody buried deep inside of me
Nothing means more to me than you

If I could see your face again
If I could change everything
If we could be together once again

(Repeat chorus)

When I walked away, I lost everything
I loved you like nothing else
No one hurts me like myself
I can’t breathe in, I can’t breathe out
I can’t breathe in, can you save me from myself?

(Repeat chorus)

Papa Roach – Crooked Teeth lyrics

[Verse 1]
Locked up in my hurricane head,
Bloody knuckles paint the whole place red.
Straightjacket, straight tie me to the bed,
[?]
All alone in a room full of misfits,
Cold blooded, cold hearted on a hit list,
Paranoid, struggling, I gotta kick this.

[Pre-Chorus]
Everybody’s looking at me, staring at me,
Everybody’s looking at me.

[Chorus]
Terrified, paralyzed,
Something’s got a hold on me.
Let me go, I can’t speak,
I’m choking on my crooked teeth.
Wake me up if I sleep,
Cause I’m haunted by my dreams.
Crying out, but I can’t speak,
Cause I’m choking on my, choking on my,
Crooked teeth,
My crooked teeth.

[Verse 2]
Caved in, hyperventilating,
Cutting way too close to my skin.
I feel the Devil trying to creep back in,
I feel the Devil trying to creep back in!
I’m possessed by the every day stress,
Flash back and I’m trying to forget.
Bloody hell, bloody knife, bloody mess.

[Chorus]
Terrified, paralyzed,
Something’s got a hold on me.
Let me go, I can’t speak,
I’m choking on my crooked teeth.
Wake me up if I sleep,
Cause I’m haunted by my dreams.
Crying out, but I can’t speak,
Cause I’m choking on my, choking on my,
Crooked teeth,
My crooked teeth.

[Bridge]
Everybody’s looking at me, staring at me,
Everybody’s looking at me.
Everybody’s looking at me, staring at me,
Everybody’s looking at me.

[Outro]
Terrified, paralyzed,
Something’s got a hold on me.
Let me go, I can’t speak,
I’m choking on my crooked teeth.
Wake me up if I sleep,
Cause I’m haunted by my dreams.
Crying out, but I can’t speak,
Cause I’m choking on my, choking on my,
Crooked teeth,
My crooked teeth.

[Chorus]
She went away
She went away
Woe is me!
Woe is me!
She went away
She went away
Woe is me!
Woe is me!

Adam Melchor – Brook Revisited lyrics

Have you ever seen someone with dreamcatchers for teeth
Islands in their eyes and fire in their speech
Hair grown like the willow tree and water runnin’ in their name
And so how could you blame

A river born is water that was meant to move
How could I catch water that ran through my youth
Everyday I wonder what you turned into and what you became

Are you the very same
Are you the very same

Brook who told me I’m the one who’s leavin’
I was in the kitchen, and my heart was bleedin’
Oh, i never knew if it was ok to feel it
Oh, I suppose I should know

The past is void,and all the future’s too
And neither will make sense just as they never do
Julie called me up and when she asked me if I heard the news

I knew that it was true
I knew that it was true

When Brook told me Drew’s the one you’re leavin’
I was in the kitchen, and my heart was bleedin’
Oh, I never knew if it was okay to feel it
Oh, I suppose, I should know

The loudest prayers are silent in the way they move
The greatest secrets ever found are in my youth

We’re all just a couple kids with dreamcatchers for teeth
Islands in our eyes and fire in our speech
Tryin’ to find some freedom from the troubled streams of form

That’s why i feel it all
That’s why i feel it all

When I told brook you’re the one I needed
I was in the kitchen while my heart was bleedin’
Oh I never knew if it was okay to feel it
Oh, I should know
I should know you leave, you turn me to see my
Body’s just a monument the spirit bleeds in
Drawn in like the river, drawn in like the brook and
Oh, I should know, I should know

You’re never comin’ back
You’re never comin’ back
You’re never comin’ back
You’re never comin’ back

Climbing Trees – Amber lyrics

[Verse 1]
There was amber in the dusty earth
You revealed it
Found poetry in meaning there
It was gleaming
And how much, if I count it up
Did I really need?

[Chorus]
Well, you think you know the feeling
But you really don’t
How many more times
I must be getting old
Well, you think you know the feeling
But you really don’t
And I think I know the place
But I don’t wanna go

[Verse 2]
A welcome contribution made
A reminder
That sometimes it is hard to find
But it’s worth it
If there’s amber, we have to claw it out
‘Cos we need it

[Chorus]
Well, you think you know the feeling
But you really don’t
How many more times
I must be getting old
Well, you think you know the feeling
But you really don’t
And I think I know the place
But I don’t wanna go

[Instrumental]

[Bridge]
‘Cos this is not the night
And this is not the night

[Final Chorus]
Well, you think you know the feeling
But you really don’t
How many more times
I must be getting old
Well, you think you know the feeling
But you really don’t
And I think I know the place
But I don’t wanna go

Is there time enough
To call it off?
Is there time enough
To call it off?
Is there time enough
To call it off?
‘Cos this is not the night
And this is not the night

Climbing Trees – Aloisi lyrics

[Verse 1]
I don’t ask to hold your hand
You slip yours into mine
Silently, we walk along
We stumble home at night
And it’s so dark along these streets
Since they took out the street lights
You get scared so easily
That you give me half a fright

[Verse 2]
Turn the landing light on
Turn the heating on full
I know we don’t really need it, darling
But we don’t wanna catch a chill
I head into the kitchen
And pour a couple of glasses of wine
Cos I know whose arms you’ll be in tonight
And I know the answer is mine

[Chorus]
Oh, shut my eyes
Shut my eyes
Shut my eyes, I’m dreaming
Shut my eyes
Shut my eyes
Shut my eyes, I’m dreaming

[Verse 3]
Sunlight streams into my eyes
It always brings me to
I didn’t mean to wake you, darling
But I can’t keep my eyes off of you
And when you leave
I will walk you out the door
Cos I know it won’t be long until
You come back into the warm

[Chorus]
Oh, shut my eyes
Shut my eyes
Shut my eyes, I’m dreaming
Shut my eyes
Shut my eyes
Shut my eyes, I’m dreaming

[Instrumental]

[Final Chorus]
Oh, shut my eyes
Shut my eyes
Shut my eyes, I’m dreaming
Shut my eyes, shut my eyes
Oh, when I shut my eyes
I’m dreaming

Climbing Trees – Happen lyrics

[Verse]
So lay down
Gently my dear
Try not to worry
Anytime soon
The trust
The trust in your eyes
Went with the summer
So sleep with your lies

[Chorus]
We lost ourselves a long time ago
Still we try, still we fall
Make me believe there’s something left please
Something good
That something could
Happen

[Verse]
So lay down
Gently my dear
Try not to worry
Anytime soon
The trust
The trust in your eyes
Went with the summer
So sleep with your lies

[Chorus]
We lost ourselves a long time ago
Still we try, still we fall
Make me believe there’s something left please
Something good
That something could
Happen

[Instrumental]

[Final Chorus]
We lost ourselves a long time ago
Still we try, still we fall
Make me believe there’s something left please
Something good
That something could…

Climbing Trees – Graves lyrics

[Verse 1]
I’m sleeping around in a Ghost Town
I’m moving about for the hell of it
Who do you love in a Ghost Town?
Where some of us slip away
And some of us don’t

[Verse 2]
I’m fucking about in a Ghost Town
I’m moving around for the sake of it
Who can you love in a Ghost Town?
Where some of us rise again
And some of us don’t

[Chorus]
Tell me a story
The story of a man who got away
Tell me a story
The story of a man who got away

[Verse 3]
Settling down in a Ghost Town
I’m digging holes for the little ones
Who needs more than a Ghost Town?
Where some of us live asleep
And some of us don’t

[Chorus]
Tell me a story
The story of a man who got away
Tell me a story
The story of a man who got away

[Instrumental]

[Final Chorus]
Tell me a story
The story of a man who got away
Tell me a story
The story of a man who got away
Tell me a story
The story of a man who got away
Tell me a story…

Climbing Trees – Gone To Sea lyrics

[Verse 1]
We gather on the shore
To part without remorse
Gone to find abroad
What can’t be found at home

Say goodbye to all the boys
Say goodbye to all the boys

[Bridge]
Goodbye, for the last time
Goodbye, for the last time

[Chorus]
Gone, gone, gone
They’re gone to sea
Gone, gone, gone
They’re gone to sea
Now they’re gone
They’re gone to sea
And they’re gone
Without me

[Verse 2]
When strong winds prevail
The town’s heart will set sail
For those who are left behind
We fight hard not to cry
We stumble from that port
We’re desperate to make sure
We base our lives around
Those who stay firmly on the ground

Say goodbye to all the boys
Say goodbye to all the boys

[Bridge]
Goodbye, for the last time
Goodbye, for the last time

[Chorus]
Gone, gone, gone
They’re gone to sea
Gone, gone, gone
They’re gone to sea
Now they’re gone
They’re gone to sea
And they’re gone
Without me

[Instrumental]

[Bridge]
Goodbye, for the last time
Goodbye, for the last time
