I can’t shake this sadness I can’t shake this fear Roaming the streets is madness I wish this pain would disappear Enemy shots ring out Enemy shots ring out Enemy shots Just another rout! Remember when this land was green Remember when these skies were blue Remember when language was not obscene I wish I could talk... Just talk to you Enemy shots ring out Enemy shots ring out Enemy shots Just another rout! Where will you be without your video Where will you be without your guide Who said this would be any easier It’s just another place for you to hide Just another place for you to hide You’re just another face After the glow After the glow After the glow The world is waiting The world is waiting

Searching for love in the afternoon Every street becomes a mirror And every face I see that day Reminds me of someone Far away And the illusion is mine At the rising Of the New York moon Caught between primeval moons The park is dancing to a solid groove Flyboys fly and women sing Of lullabies and dreams on the wing The illusion is cast At the rising Of the New York moon Fear and hope Gliding side by side (Eclipse) Primeval moon Fills the African sky The rhythms are deep and holy African man Sees the New York moon African man Sees Eclipse African man African man Sees Eclipse

Having heaved myself From somewhere on high Not nearly high enough On more than enough rope... I am smoking Resigned to smoking Resigned to aerial Tin pan alley music of spoons Tootle of horns I am poised I am kneeling down Down Down Down (The poet) Mark this: here is a creature Only found in the woods at night Curled up round crawling roots That have found their way Above ground Twisting ruined fingers Round a ruined stone Here is a creature Would break our hearts like twigs (Sans love Sans potions) Wind me up And I totter Talking about myself Crying for mercy The best of everything Watched by the wind Wheeling One eyed One eyed One eyed (I am whirled away Like a sinister empty hat and coat)
5.
Stop it just stop it Leave me alone You think I want you I don’t You think you’ll hurt me You won’t Nobody touches me I’m not like that Not like anyone Nobody touches me I’m not like that Not like anyone Keep out and keep off Don’t get too close to me Save me if you want to That’s your affair Worry if I’m alive I just don’t care That doesn’t matter It’s all the same to me Things are like that When you live this way When you live this way
6.
A world away a life begins Becoming a victim of gun barrel minds A world away I harden my heart Becoming a victim of grim headlines The world is full pianos No one knows the song For those who cry for a lifetime For those who never belong A world away I open my heart And listen to children singing their lives A world away the searching goes on But no one is hearing the music of time The world is full of pianos No one knows the song For those who cry for a lifetime For those who never belong
