THE SICK ROSE

 

O Rose thou art sick

The invisible worm

That flies in the night 

In the howling storm 

 

Has found out thy bed 

Of crimson joy

And his dark secret love 

Does thy life destroy

 

 

 

FIGURE OUT (SPIRIT OF LIES)

 

Flowers in the window

Kisses in the rain

the loneliness

the spirit of lies

has showed me the way

 

you’ve showed me light of the city

you’ve accounted stars in the sky

bright night’s

a looking over I

freedom in the space

 

oh, yeah…

she knows that I need her

she knows that I need her

to figure out

 

you’ve showed me light of the city

you’ve accounted stars in the sky

bright night’s

a looking over I

freedom in the space

oh, yeah…

she knows that, i need her

she knows that, i need her

 

show me the lights

look over 

I was waiting for love

spirit of lies

lost in the sky

she´s waiting for

waiting for love

spirit of lies

I was waiting for love

spirit of lies

lost in the sky

THE ANGEL

 

i dreamt a dream! what can  it mean?

and that i was a maiden queen

guarded by an angel mild

witless woe, was ne’er beguil’d

 

and i wept both night and day

and he wip’d my tears away

and i wept both day and night

 

and hid from him my hearts delight

so he took his wings and fled

 

soon my angel came again

i was arm’d, he came in vain

he came in vain

 

then the morn blush’d rosy red

i dried my tear & arm’d my fears

with ten thousand shields and spears

 

and hid from him my hearts delight

so he took his wings and fled

soon my angel came again

i was arm’d, he came in vain

he came in vain

 

soon my angel came again

i was arm’d, he came in vain

for the time of youth was fled

and grey hairs

soon my angel were on my head

soon my angel

were on my head

 

 

 

POISON TREE

 

I was angry with my friend

I told my wrath, my wrath did end

I was angry with my foe

I told it not, my wrath did grow

 

And I watered it in fears

Night and morning with my tears

And I sunned it with smiles

And with soft deceitful wiles

And I sunned it with smiles

And with soft deceitful wiles

deceitful wiles

 

And it grew both day and night

Till it bore an apple bright

And my foe beheld it shine

And he knew that it was mine

 

And into my garden stole

When the night had veiled the pole

In the morning glad I see

My foe outstretched beneath the tree 

In the morning glad I see

My foe outstretched beneath the tree

And I sunned it with smiles

And with soft deceitful wiles

 

In my garden stole

The poison tree

 

 

 

MISS LIE

 

25 years in her life

it was not enough

to show her all the truth

Wondering all the things

that she once did

and how much 

she wanna do

 

Sarah told a lot of lies

and made her life a big joke, yeah

Sarah told a lot of lies

and made her life a big joke, yeah

 

Always looking for another way

to hide from reality

trying to get some sense from the world 

but her way 

is no O.K. for me

 

Sarah keeps on breaking the rules

and makes her life a big joke, yeah

Sarah told a lot of lies

and made her life a big joke, yeah

 

Nothing else really matters

when you talk to miss lie…

nothing else really matters

A LITTLE GIRL LOST

 

Children of the future age

Reading this indignant page

Know that in a former time

Love! Sweet love was thought a crime

 

In the age of gold

Free from winters cold

Youth and maiden bright

To the holy light

Naked in the sunny beams delight

 

Once a youthful pair

Fill´d with softest care

Met in garden bright

Where the holy light

Had just removed the curtains of the night

 

There in rising day

On the grass they play

Parents were afar

Strangers came not near

And the maiden soon forgot her fear

 

Children of the future age

Reading this indignant page

Know that in a former time

Love! Sweet love was thought a crime

 

Tired with kisses sweet

They agree to meet

When the silent sleep

Waves o´er heavens deep

And the weary tires wanderers weep

 

To her father white

Came the maiden bright

But his loving look

Like the holy book

All her tender limbs with terror shook

 

Met in garden bright

Where the holy light

Had just removed the curtains of the night

 

Ona! Pale and weak

To thy father speak

O the trembling fear

O the dismal care

That shakes the blossoms of my hoary hair

 

Children of the future age

Reading this indignant page

Know that in a former time

Love! Sweet love was thought a crime

 

 

 

BRIGHT MAGIC

 

Coming home back

from a long night

Once again the world is his room

 

The needle invites

to a flight

the magic powder bright as the moon

 

Now that he’s

feeling all right

everything around is so cool

 

Morning light comes

as a bride

Reflecting on the empty spoon

 

And she is so far away

he just can’t take it no more

he needs a reason so bad

to carry on ‘til the end

 

 

 

QUEEN OF HEARTS

 

Don’t make mistakes

Don’t break the rules

They’re secret loosers

Don’t listen to fools

 

The price is cheap

The prize is great

And we can play together

 

Stalk the cards

‘cause we need to win

all over the world you know

the game has just begun

 

Hey man, don’t waste your time 

try to keep yourself alive

so take your cards and start to play

‘cause some feelings are blind

 

Don’t make mistakes

Don’t break the rules

They’re secret loosers

Don’t listen to fools

 

The price is cheap

The prize is great

And we can play together

 

Nobody is gonna defeat us

‘Cause I’m giving the cards

 

 

 

THE FLY

 

little fly

thy summers play

my thoughtless hand

has brush’d away

 

am not i

a fly like three

or art not thou

thou a man like me

 

for i dance

and drink & sing

till some blind hand

shall brush my wing

 

if thought is life

and strengh & breath

and the want

of thought is death

 

then am i

a happy fly

then am i

a happy fly

if i live

or if i die

 

then am i

a happy fly

if i live

or if i die

 

 

 

THE LITTLE VAGABOND

 

Dear mother, dear mother, the church is cold

But the ale-house is healthy and pleasant and warm

Besides I can tell where I am used well

Such usage in Heaven will never do well

 

But if at the church they would give us some ale

And a pleasant fire our souls to regale

We'd sing and we'd pray all the live-long day

Nor ever once wish from the church to stray

 

And God, like a father rejoicing to see

His children as pleasant and happy as he,

Would have no more quarrel with the Devil or the barrel,

But kiss him, and give him both drink and apparel

 

Then the parson might preach, and drink, and sing

And we'd be as happy as birds in the spring

And modest Dame Lurch, who is always at church

Would not have bandy children, nor fasting, nor birch

 

And God, like a father rejoicing to see

His children as pleasant and happy as he

Would have no more quarrel with the Devil or the barrel

But kiss him, and give him both drink and apparel
