Us and them

Us and Them
And after all we’re only ordinary men
Me, and you
God only knows it’s not what we would choose to do
Forward he cried from the rear
and the front rank died
And the General sat, as the lines on the map
moved from side to side
Black and Blue
And who knows which is which and who is who
Up and Down
And in the end it’s only round and round and round
Haven’t you heard it’s a battle of words
the poster bearer cried
Listen son, said the man with the gun
There’s room for you inside
Down and Out
It can’t be helped but there’s a lot of it about
With, without
And who’ll deny that’s what the fightings all about
Get out of the way, it’s a busy day
And I’ve got things on my mind
For want of the price of tea and a slice
The old man died

…Pink Floyd “Us and them”

Where’s my love

Endless fields of emptiness in my dark and wounded heart
Where is my love?

The freezing moment when you turned your head and waved goodbye
Where is my love?

Even all the biggest storms can’t take my pain away
Where is my love?

Noisy happy people crossing streets from side to side
Where is my love?

I gave you everything I could but you want the stars
Where is my love?

Endless fields of emptiness in my dark and wounded heart
Where is my love?

Even all the biggest storms can’t take my pain away
Where is my love?

Noisy happy people crossing streets from side to side
Where is my love?

Blackfield “Where is my Love”

1000 People

A thousand people yell
They’re shouting my name
But I want to die in this moment
I want to die

And a thousand people smile
They’re smiling at me
But I want to die in this moment
I want to die

No way to understand
Why I’ve become the way I am

When the sky is filled with stars
I find a place inside my heart

Some people can take a blow
And they won’t ever drop
But I want to die in this moment
I want to die

She will tell me she loves me
That she won’t ever stop
But I want to die in this moment
I want to die

The coldness in my soul
And I reach out for her to hold

And then I watch her close her eyes
It’s only me that needs to cry

And if I stay with you
Do you believe that I’ll pull through?

No way to understand
Why I’ve become the way I am

When the sky is filled with stars
I find a place inside my heart
And then I watch her close her eyes
It’s only me that needs to cry

A thousand people yell
They’re shouting my name
But I want to die in this moment
I want to die

…Blackfield “1000 people”

Nicole

find me the captain
tell him i want to know
just who is steering and who’s merely holding on
and when the next wave is the last wave
i’ll drag him downwards to the engine room
and never let go
oh Nicole
from the moment we met we let it get out of control
the universal dance
the black romance of running prey
the slowing down
the giving in
the final give away
i cry for mercy
you stare back blankly
i want to jump but if you’re pushing me
i’ll hold on tightly…

…Gravenhurst “Nicole”

Blackholes in the sand

in the small hours i realise what i have done
in the small hours i realise what i have done
i held the hand that threw the stone that killed the bird that woke the city
i held the hand that threw the stone that killed the bird that woke the city and
i could not feel the flower in my hand i could not feel the cracks beneath my feet and black holes in the sand

…Gravenhurst “Black Holes In The Sand”

Eyes Wide Open

Here it comes, here comes another day
Another decision on the way
Well here it comes, here comes a covered display
of preferences to make
Well here it comes, here comes a knock on the door
Open it for an opportunity
Well here it comes, here comes another day
for memories to be made

Eyes wide open
Eyes wide open all the time

‘n there it was, it was a perfect take
and were you asleep or awake
There it was, it was a perfect time
to speak your mind
‘n there it was, it was a chance of a lifetime
It flew right by and what did you do?
Well there it was, it was another day
for memories to be made

Eyes wide open
Eyes wide open all the time
I’ve got my eyes wide open
Eyes wide open all the time
Because you never know
what you might see…

…King Crimson “Eyes Wide Open”
