Weight of the World

Hey, little wise man, you've got the sweetest notion
(Ooh, the sweetest thing)
Just once in a lifetime, you need a helping hand
(Ooh, a helping hand)
 
You keep it wrapped up inside
It's like a lethal potion
(Gonna find it soul-destroying)
 
Whoa, don't take it any further now, baby
Whoa, won't lead you anywhere
Whoa, it's pushin' and a-hurtin' you, baby
Whoa, I'll say a little prayer
 
No other wise man could take the hurt like you do
(Ooh, the pain like you)
You're putting on brave face
But it gets to you somehow
(Ooh, gets through somehow)
 
You hold your head in your hands
And the weight of the world on your shoulders
(Come and pour your heart out to me)
 
Whoa, don't take it any further now, baby
Whoa, won't lead you anywhere
Whoa, it's pushin' and a-hurtin' you, baby
Whoa, I'll say a little prayer
 
You keeped it wrapped up inside
It's like a lethal potion
(Gonna find it soul-destroying)
 
Whoa, don't take it any further now, baby
Whoa, won't lead you anywhere
Whoa, it's pushin' and a-hurtin' you, baby
Whoa, I'll say a little prayer
 
Whoa, don't take it any further now, baby
Whoa, won't lead you anywhere
Whoa, it's pushin' and a-hurtin' you, baby
Whoa, I'll say a little prayer  
 
Whoa, don't take it any further now, baby
Whoa, won't lead you anywhere
Whoa, it's pushin' and a-hurtin' you, baby
 

Heart of Stone

I cry for your heart of stone
I'm gonna wait until you come home
Why am I all alone?
I'm as good as dead, yeah
 
Ooh, I lost my sense of passion and direction
To protect myself from hurting and despair
Listen to my heart, my soul is aching
Fool or saint? 
'Cause you went and left me and you so upset me
 
I can't believe that you would ever find it easy
To walk away as if you'd never really cared
Did you expect that I'd give in and beg for mercy
Out in the gutter? Out in the gutter?
 
I cry for your heart of stone
I'm gonna wait until you come home
Why am I all alone?
I'm as good as dead, yeah
 
Ooh, I look back on the first night with affection
And if you had a heart, you'd remember too
The way we used to run around like little children
Fool or saint? 
My mother told me you'd be no good for me
 
I cry for your heart of stone
I'm gonna wait until you come home
Why am I all alone?
I'm as good as dead, yeah
 
Listen to my heart, my soul is aching
Out in the gutter
I've got to break that heart of stone
 
I cry for your heart of stone
I'm gonna wait until you come home
Why am I all alone?
I'm as good as dead, yeah
 
I cry for your heart of stone
I'm gonna wait until you come home
Why am I all alone?
I'm as good as dead, yeah  
 
I cry for your heart of stone
I'm gonna wait until you come home
Why am I all alone?
I'm as good as dead, yeah  
 

Yahoo!

Better that the devil should not be called
If you wanna wed the devil's daughter
I pray to the Lord on high to set you free
Better you decide to cut him loose
Than to ride on the cunning line
I pray to the Lord on high to rescue me
 
No one should go through hard times
No one should live in sorrow
Gotta face the darker sky
Gotta lift your head up high
 
Yahoo! Ahh
Higher, higher, higher
Yahoo! Ahh
Find your way unto the Lord, ahh
Higher, higher, higher
Yahoo! Ahh
Find your way unto the Lord
 
To run where the devil would fear to tread
Gotta put your money where your heart is
(I pray to the Lord on high to set you free)
Whether you decide to trade your soul
For a little of the devil's gold
I pray to the Lord on high to rescue me
 
No one should feel so low down
And give in to sweet temptation
Gotta lift your head up high
Gotta face the darker skies
 
Yahoo! Ahh
Higher, higher, higher
Yahoo! Ahh
Find your way unto the Lord, ahh
Higher, higher, higher
Yahoo! Ahh
Find your way unto the Lord
 
(Yahoo! Ahh)
(Higher, higher, higher)

(Find your way unto the Lord)
 
When you look around and find yourself
Between the devil and deep blue sea
(I pray to the Lord on high to set you free)
If there's trouble on your mind when you sleep at night
Would you come and put your trust in me?
(I pray to the Lord on high to rescue me)
 
No one should go through hard times
No one should live in sorrow
Gotta face the darker sky
Gotta lift your head up high
 
Yahoo! Ahh

Hallowed Ground

Everybody's intent on killing someone
The streets are closed and there's a kid on the run
The bullets scream out from gun to gun
Everybody's intent on being someone
 
The cold and darkness of the criminal dawn
Wrapped in blankets, gotta keep themselves warm
A child in the arms of a teenage mum
Who will be there, who will be 
The next victim of the criminal dawn?
 
Old friends meet on the edge of town
Sharing conversation, hoping things'll soon get better
While the children meet, got the world at their feet
Not knowing what's around the corner
Are we living for an uncertain future?
 
Down by the corner sits a broken man
Lives by the bottle, swears never again
Lost his money on the dogs and gin
Looks for his supper in garbage can
 
The kids hang around by the old school ground
Right by the river where the body was found
Throwing stones on hallowed ground
Who will be there, who will be 
The next victim of the criminal dawn?
 
Old friends meet on the edge of town
Sharing conversation, hoping things'll soon get better
While the children meet, got the world at their feet
Not knowing what's around the corner
Are we living for an uncertain future?
Can you hear them calling?
 
In the cold and darkness of the criminal dawn
Wrapped in blankets, gotta keep ourselves warm
A child in the arms of a teenage mum
Who will be there, who will be 
The last victim of the criminal dawn?
 
Old friends meet on the edge of town
Sharing conversation, hoping things'll soon get better
While the children meet, got the world at their feet
Not knowing what's around the corner
Are we living for an uncertain future?
 
Old friends meet on the edge of town
Sharing conversation, hoping things'll soon get better
While the children meet, got the world at their feet
Not knowing what's around the corner
Are we living for an uncertain future?
 

Brother and Sister

(Rocket)
 
When I was young
I would scream blue murder
Till I had my own way
Run from the family
Tell of a story to spite my elders
 
Round and round, 
The boy in the garden of lies and science fiction
 
Brother and sister and father of mine
Keep us together and keep us in line
A lot we depend on, a lot we can do
Send love to mother, I'll be good to you
 
To pollute the mind of a minor
The only escape from the rigours of life
Pretend we're a family and try to believe 
In the virtues of truth
 
Round and round, caught up in a tangle of lies 
And deception
 
Brother and sister and father of mine
Keep us together and keep us in line
A lot we depend on, a lot we can do
Send love to mother, I'll be good to you
 
(Round and round, round and round)  
(Round and round, round and round)  
(Round and round, round and round)  
(Round and round, round and round)    
 
Brother and sister and father of mine
Keep us together and keep us in line
A lot we depend on, a lot we can do
Send love to mother, I'll be good to you
 
Brother and sister and father of mine
Keep us together and keep us in line
A lot we depend on, a lot we can do
Send love to mother, I'll be good to you
 
But still we're going round, the boy in the garden of lies
 
Brother and sister and father of mine
Keep us together and keep us in line
A lot we depend on, a lot we can do
Send love to mother, I'll be good to you
 
Brother and sister and father of mine
Keep us together and keep us in line
A lot we depend on, a lot we can do
Send love to mother, I'll be good to you
 

La Gloria

Oh, Suzi, you're shaking your red hair
Disco diva y flamenco chico
You know the eyes'll all be fixing on you tonight
La bonita a la vista de un marinero
 
The men in the 'casa de rosa'
They have a penchant for living
She'll be dancing till the coca wears off tonight
Who's a bad girl tonight?
 
Tonight she'll be having fun
The likes of which we'll never know
Tonight she'll be having fun
See her go (see her go)
 
Whoa, estamos en la gloria
 
Suzi, you're shaking your red dress
Viva tango to revive the bull
(Viva tango to revive the bull)
She'll be dancing, she'll be clicking her heels tonight
If you see her estrellita, she'll make you king for a day
 
Olé to the cabaretera
She'll sing all your troubles away
Looking down the barrel of a loaded gun
Pata tendida!
Si no la bandida
She go rat-tat-tat-ta
 
¡Ariba, ariba, ariba andale!
Kiss all them working-day blues away
Till the light of day
 
Estamos en la gloria
Whoa, estamos en la gloria
 
(Estamos en la gloria)
Whoa, estamos en la gloria  
La gloria
La gloria
 

Siren Song

Ever faithful, I endure
To listen for the sound of the siren song
Ragged whispers of imprisoned sisters
Cutting through real life, drawing me nearer
 
The colour of the pure in soul
Like water shall fill the cloudless sky
 
Try to feel the splendour of it all
Embrace the honesty of nightfall
Try to feel the anguish of it all
Wrap yourself up
In every facet of emotion
 
Hearts that cry diamond tears
Spirits that walk for a thousand years
Hear them calling on that darkest morning
Pulling me under, my thoughts disappear
 
The colour of the pure in soul
Like water shall fill the cloudless sky
 
Try to feel the splendour of it all
Embrace the honesty of nightfall
Try to feel the anguish of it all
Wrap yourself up
In every facet of emotion
 
The colour (the colour) of the pure in soul
Like water (like water) shall fill the cloudless sky
 
Try to feel the splendour of it all
Embrace the honesty of nightfall
Try to feel the anguish of it all
Wrap yourself up
In every facet of emotion
 
(Try to feel the splendour of it all)
(Embrace the honesty of nightfall)
 
Can you feel love?
Can you feel joy?
Can you feel pain?
 
(Try to feel the splendour of it all)
Gotta feel love
(Embrace the honesty of nightfall)
 

Joan

(Never taste it)
 
Power generation
You live up your life and it feels like fire
Suspended in animation
A trick of the light and it drives you higher
 
Blind vision, blind faith
You really can be sold
If you dare to disagree
 
It's just not within the scheme of things
To give up your life so easily
That's not the way you're meant to be
What a waste of time and energy
(Live your life)  
It's just not within the scheme of things 
To give up your life so easily
(I'll be there)
Easily
 
Psychic celebration
Look up in the stars and see Venus rising
Rapture, (rapture) fascination
You live for the night and your own desire
 
Blind vision, blind faith
You really can't rely
On what they tell you for effect
 
(Live your life)    
It's not just within the scheme of things
To give up your life so easily
(I do care)  
That's not the way you're meant to be
What a waste of time and energy
 
(Live your life)  
It's just not within the scheme of things
To give up your life so easily
(I'll be there)  
That's not the way you're meant to be
What a waste of time and energy, energy
 
Blind vision, blind faith
You really can be sold
If you dare to disagree  
 
(Live your life)    
It's not just within the scheme of things
To give up your life so easily
(I do care)  
That's not the way you're meant to be
What a waste of time and energy
 
(Live your life)  
It's just not within the scheme of things
To give up your life so easily
(I'll be there)  
That's not the way you're meant to be
What a waste of time and energy
 
(Live your life)    
It's not just within the scheme of things
To give up your life so easily
(I do care)  
That's not the way you're meant to be
What a waste of time and energy
 
(Live your life)  
It's just not within the scheme of things
To give up your life so easily
(I'll be there)  
That's not the way you're meant to be
What a waste of time and energy, energy
(Live your life)  
Energy, easy, easy, easy, energy
(I do care)
(Live your life)
(I'll be there)
 
Energy, energy, energy
 

Breath of Life

Never had a point of view
'cause my mind was always 
someone else's mind.
 
I never had to tell a lie
'cause I left the choices up to them.
Don't know why, but I did.
 
Oh, I want life,
life wants me
to breathe in its love.
 
Take me, I'm yours.
Now I'm comin' up for air.
I'm gonna live my time
for the rest of my life.
Then I'll be comin' back for more.
 
I never had to call the tune
'cause I always drifted 
with the tide of the moon.
(Ah, la luna, my love, my love)
 
I would go out every night
looking for someone to treat me right.
Not a chance, (chance) not a hope (hope)
in this world (world, world).
 
Oh, I want life,
life wants me
to breathe in its love.
 
Take me, I'm yours.
Now I'm comin' up for air.
I'm gonna live my time
for the rest of my life.
Then I'll be comin' back for more, ooh.
 
Take me, I'm yours.
Now I'm comin' up for air.
I'm gonna live my time
for the rest of my life.
Then I'll be comin' back for more.
