Fallen Dreams And Angels

1. The Third World In The U.K.

Tijuana brass on a sunny day
It’s only one hours drive from LA
Crying on the doorstep of the UK
Screaming to the world let me in or can you let me out?

A burning car in a cul de sac
Jeering youths like a Zulu war
It’s OK as long as we stay in a pack
Tearing up a carriage on a railroad track
We carry the flag and the tools of the trade
You can’t buy these they’re mostly home made
VW badges torn out as souvenirs
Gonna shrink them put them on a stick outside my door
Oh wonderful world

There’s well known politician
In a doorway sitting with an out stretched hand
Thought he had a dream for the nation
But tried too hard to be king of this land
He was gonna plug their lives back in
With a single stroke of his hand
Rap trap rat race now they throw it in your face
Hey buddy can you spare us a dime?

So have your head and join the masses
Don’t know why but it’s the thing to do
And if one brave soul stands up to be counted
Then we can all stand up and be counted too
Anger dripping onto your cheek
How can the human race be so weak?
Metropolis economy laughing at monogamy
All ending in tears
And one big bang

I’ve had too much to drink
I’ve had too much to smoke
Now reality just a pantomime distorted into one big haze
Comatose and blinded
I’ll get round to doing something one of these days

2. Dune

Will you ever understand what it is I do?
Is music in your soul or did it leave you long ago?
It’s a long way but some day
I’ll find you and give you
Dune you’re in my soul but I won’t let you win
Dune you can never move just slowly blow away
Oh and Dune don’t you ever learn
To see things in another way?
I will conquer you but I sink in the sand to start again

Do those madrigals still haunt you?
Did they crumble fade and die?
Remember how they taught you and you never reasoned why
It’s a long way but some day
I’ll find you and give you

Dune you’re in my soul but I won’t let you win
Dune you can never move just slowly blow away
Oh and Dune don’t you ever learn
To see things in another way?
I will conquer you but I sink in the sand to start again

Dune you’re in my soul but I won’t let you win
Dune you can never move just slowly blow away
Oh and Dune don’t you ever learn
To see things in another way?
I will conquer you but
I sink in the sand to start again

3. Sister Bluebird

Sister bluebird with eyes so full of hope
Of what the world might hold if you could always hope
Some rays of sunshine throw some light upon your floor
And you sit and you watch in fear
But you can’t wait too long here
For the shadows of the night to fade
And the moon reflects in your eyes

With these hands I’ll help you never give up the fight
With these hands I’ll make your soul dance through the night
With these hands I’ll help your troubles disappear
With these hands I’ll carry you far away from here

Sister bluebird with eyes so full of hope
Of what the world might hold if you could always cope
Some rays of sunshine throw some light upon your world
Some sense of danger lurks at the doorway of your mind
Of your mind

With these hands I’ll help you never give up the fight
With these hands I’ll make your soul dance through the night
With these hands I’ll help your troubles disappear
With these hands I’ll carry you far away from here

Sister sister bluebird

4. Fallen Dreams And Angels

The cold in her eyes as she walks the hungry mile
The fear in her eyes small girl tears thinking of her hometown
Take my hand and as you close your eyes
And if we ever get back to the real world
I wont let the shadows near you

And I climb the mountain I stumbled in the valleys
And if you should ever lose your strength
Be brave my little angel
’cause I’m never gonna leave you
To fallen dreams and angels
I’ll hold your head so close to me
Let all those years of frustration
Come flooding out and take what you need from me
’cause I’m never gonna leave you
For fallen dreams and angels

And I climb the mountain I stumbled in the valleys
And if you should ever lose your strength
Be brave my little angel
’cause I’m never gonna leave you
For fallen dreams and angels

I’ll hold your hand gonna take you home
