Versus Time

WIDER THAN WISDOM

Wider than wisdom, deeper than understanding
This is the story of a love that’s everlasting
It’s rising in the wilderness and it’s riding through the land
It’s creeping in your bed at night and coming in your hand
It’s storming through the atmosphere and spinning round inside
It’s tearing down your vanity and blowing out your mind
Wider than wisdom, deeper than understanding
This is the story of a love that’s everlasting
And it lasts forever and forever
It’s forming in the firmament and its falling from the skies
It’s pouring down your pretty face and its it’s dripping from your eyes
It’s blazing through the underworld and it’s flaming out with pride
It’s ripping through your innocence and burning you inside
And it lasts forever and forever

A KIND OF FAMILY

There’s violence in the streets – confusion in the air.
All the people that you meet gonna take you back down there
No matter what they say – They’re trying to take our dreams away
Ain’t nobody sane
There’s secrets in the sky – they’re written in the air.
There’s harmony of life in the good things that we share
A love for all humankind – our hearts are opened wide oh yeah
To psychedelic nightmares
Come into the comfort of a kind of family
Cradled in the beauty of the branches of the tree
Our love ain’t no mystery – love in a mystery
Ahh
We forget about the will of the world that we’ve left behind
We’re together in the power of a pure and perfect mind
And now that we live as one – it’s time for a long dark trip back home
Straight into the sun
Come into the comfort of a kind of family
Cradled in the beauty of the branches of the tree
Our love ain’t no mystery – love in a mystery
We are happy we are glad
For the good times we have had
We don’t wake up in the morning feeling bad…

BIG EYES

Soon we’ll be having the time of our lives (Big eyes)
Soon we’ll be having the time of our lives (Big eyes)
Soon they’ll be buzzing all over our hives (Big eyes)
Soon they’ll be buzzing all over our hives (Big eyes)
Mindful of hollow – sleepiness, sorrow will fade away
And love ever after will plead to be slaying the break of day
Soon they’ll be coming to take away all of our lives (Big eyes)
Soon they’ll be coming to take away all of our lives (Big eyes)
Mindful of hollow – sleepiness, sorrow will fade away
And love ever after will plead to be slaying the break of day

SIMPLE LIFE

Vagabonds with ragged wrists
Grit their teeth and clench their fists a long time
The rich be warned in gold adorned Spend their gilded lives in misery
Our leaders with quicksilver minds
Cannot escape from swimming in human slime
Idiots despite their hurt
Return back to the pain they cannot see
But I’m paying off my debt to society
And I like this simple feeling inside of me
There’s places that I know they want me to go
Cos they fill me with love and they burn out my loneliness
The witches fill the room with smoke
They’re burning all the books we wrote on sorrow
The women of the amethyst
Are tempting me with ecstasy and wine
Our sisters with their newborn babes
That will become their mother’s scourge tomorrow
Are calling out for their saviour cos
They think that they are running out of time
But I’m paying off my debt to society
And I like this simple feeling inside of me
There’s places that I know they want me to go
Cos they fill me with love and they burn out my loneliness
I Send the Beast away on his journey
Now all that mad confusion don’t come near me
And there’s places that I know they want me to go
Cos they fill me with love and they burn out my loneliness
And the things that they reveal are simple and real
A time for our heart, a time for our innocence
There’s time for our innocence
A time for our…

MORNING STAR
The sun’s a star so you know where you are
With me my love with me my love
The world’s on fire with all our desire
To be my love to me my love
Golden dawn at break of day
I look into the skies and say
Morning Star come my way
And I’ll be there with you one day
Hail to Thee
Bright as the mid morning star
Beautiful flame from afar
Lights up wherever you are
My love
Sweet angel of flame speak out your name
To me my love to me my love
You are the one I’ve only just begun
To see my love to see my love
Golden dawn at break of day
I look into your eyes and say
Morning Star come my way
And I’ll be there with you one day
Hail to Thee
Bright as the mid morning star
Beautiful flame from afar
Lights up wherever you are
My love
Hail!

WORLD OF CREATION

Go up to the World of Creation
Cut open the moon with your knife
This faith is our only foundation
Hail to the Lord of Life
The lovers are clothed in violet
Summoned before the veil
A vision of beauty triumphant
Hail to the Lord all hail
The end of the empire upon us
All shared in a kiss with our blood
We gave up our lives all for nothing
Hail to the Lord of Love

AURA OF ENDLESS FEAR

Little infant child
I loved you for a while
I never had much to say
I smoked it all away
For one more peaceful day
Smoked it all away
Gentle creatures meek and mild
Look upon this little child
Are we not the very same When everybody dies in pain?
Come I’ll hold you near
Kiss away your fear
For I was once just like you
A blind and wretched fool
Till I found out what was true
Yeah I was just like you
Gentle creatures meek and mild
Look upon this little child
Are we not the very same When everybody dies in pain?
Everybody dies in pain
Everybody

DO WHAT YOU DO

Lady of the lantern he may love you when it’s late
But when you come on over open up his zipper
Then you’ll find the Yorkshire Ripper
And all the little pretty birds are flying away
From the ripples he created in the water
When he threw you in the river
You don’t know why you do what you do
You don’t why you do what you do
Why you do what you do why you do what you do
If you have time then you may be inclined
To investigate the meaning of the murder
Of a woman in her prime
There’s murder dripping further down the ceilings and the walls
And he’s spinning around in a circle
In the centre of his empty crime
You don’t know why you do what you do
You don’t why you do what you do
Why you do what you do why you do what you do
There’s absolutely nothing you can do about the suffering
Of a lying mind and is any wonder
When they tell you that love is blind?
Cos when you question the agenda of a serial offender
He is liable to lie about the lives
Of all the lovers he has left behind
You don’t know why you do what you do
You don’t why you do what you do
Why you do what you do why you do what you do

LUCKY LADY

Who’s gonna be… Who’s gonna be…Who’s gonna be the lucky lady? Who’s gonna be… Who’s gonna be…Who’s gonna be that lucky lady tonight?
I’m living for pleasure but I’m living precariously For I have come to wonder is this all earth really has to offer me? Now I need a lover to hold me tight Or I may open up the window and make love to the night Who’s gonna be… Who’s gonna be…Who’s gonna be the lucky lady? Who’s gonna be… Who’s gonna be…Who’s gonna be that lucky lady tonight?
My beauty was broken – she was living in desperate times When she let that old madness take her from behind But if death and desire are one and the same I will murder my lover again and again and again and again
Who’s gonna be… Who’s gonna be…Who’s gonna be the lucky lady? Who’s gonna be… Who’s gonna be…Who’s gonna be the lucky lady tonight?

I BELIEVE

You could hang down from the rafters
You could pass out on the floor
You could feed me to the jackals
That are prowling around your door
You could cut yourself to ribbons
Lacerate me with your tongue
And complicate me with your kisses
Till I don’t know right from wrong
Cos I believe in life – I believe in you
I believe that all that you say is true
I’ll believe it all if you want me to
Cos I need your love like
Nobody nobody nobody nobody knows
You could drug yourself to stupor
Every single night and day
You could be your own abuser
And I won’t stand in your way
Cos I believe in life – I believe in you
I believe that all that you say is true
I’ll believe it all if you want me to
Cos I need your love like
Nobody nobody nobody nobody knows

ARE YOU STILL WAITING FOR ME?

How long did I love you?
How long did I comfort you? How long did I hear you?
How long was I near to you?
When you were fallen and disgraced
And all your plans were laid to waste When you were shaking with fear
And your life was unclear
Are you still waiting for me?
Are you still waiting for me?
How long will you need me?
How long will you plead for me?
When your bridge is burning down
And your name is slandered round When you are shamed in every town
And all your friends are in the ground
Are you still waiting for me?
Are you still waiting for me?
For me? For me?

THIS IS THE WORLD

This is the lamp outside your door
That casts those shadows on your floor
And it guides your way
It guides your way
This is the winding stair
That leads who knows where
And this is the sound of the rain
Hammering on your window pane
And this is your life’s delight
Somewhere in the night
And this is the world
This is the world
These are the rays of the golden dawn
Lost in longest lion’s yawn
And they guide our way
They guide our way
And this is your honey pride
Her mouth is opened wide
As she pleads to the day
Not to go away
And this is setting sun
It cannot be undone
And this is the world
This is the world

YOU WAIT A LONG TIME

How many wasted tears have drained from your eyes?
How painful years have you prayed to the skies?
When you see your ingredients lining up on the shelf
You will blame it on anyone in the world but yourself
You wait a long time
You wait a long time
For your lover
You wait a long time
You wait a long time
For your lover
When you walk through the Gates of Horn with mind that is calm
Those toothless old devil dogs can’t do you no harm
When all of your meaning has melted down in the heat of the sun
You’re living for nothing now that your mind is undone
You wait a long time
You wait a long time
For your lover
You wait a long time
You wait a long time
For your lover
To take you back home
To take you back home
