Lyrics

Written In Water

Set out on a laughless day
Like a troupe of clowns
Peekin' out of a show man's car
Through cabbage town...
You feel a cold wind blow
Through your open mind
The end is about to start
So you shut it hard...
As the weather girl predicts:
Conducting the clouds with her stick
The day will be clear'n'funny
- Before it rains...

Written in water
Yeah, it's bound to disappear
Written in water
Down the crater of your ear

As long as the flavor lasts
In c-h-e-w-i-n-g gum
As long as we float around
This golf ball sun...
The light to replace the day
Is ten shades of gray
A kiss removes the skin
Shows you where you've been
Under the ultra-violet ray
A rule every fool obeys
Hold up your name in fire
- Before it rains...

Written in water
Yeah, it's bound to disappear
Written in water
Written on a wave of fear..
Written in water
Yeah, it's bound to disappear
Down-the-velvet-crater-of-your-ee-aa-rrr

Yeah, written in water
It's bound to disappear
Written in water
Written on a wave of fear
Written in water
It's bound to disappear
Down the velvet crater of your ear
Iiiiiiiiiiiihhjairr!... Written in water

You Do What I've Just Done

You hunt the smartest animal and that's the human being
You don't know how smart man is - smarter than he seems...
Their fathers groin that breeds'em, their mothers breast that feeds'em
Yeah, the do - Yeah, they do...

To be childish keeps you young, but to be treated like a child
Makes you old too soon - Haven't spent time with Jesus to know if that's true
Our fathers backs that leaves us, our mothers arms that needs us
Yeah, they do - Yeah, they do...

Keep that in mind next time that you do what I've just done
I no longer want to be a fireman
Keep that in mind next time that you do what I've just done
I no longer wanna be a fireman - and I know, I know you'll understand

You hunt the smartest animal - and that's the human being
You don't know how smart man is - smarter than he seems...
Their fathers groin that breeds'em, their mothers breast that feeds'em
Yeah, the do - Yeah, they do... Yeah, they do - Yeah, they do...

Keep that in mind next time that you do what I've just done
I no longer want to be a fireman
Keep that in mind next time that you do what I've just done
I no longer wanna be a fireman - and I know, I know you'll understand

You Filled My Head

No one taught me how to change my mind
I need one great voice that tells me that it's fine
I come from a small place of one evil, one true
And I know that silence destroys the truth in you
You filled my head with fear
You said the world was bad
And then you shook my ear
You said it was a fact
Everybody's haunted
By a past they hate...
I'm hearing echoes of the words you said

I'm surrounded by monsters and I repeat as I should
Fired up by a burning desire to be good
I hope that my troubles would die where they were
But a supernova of memories will occur
You filled my head with fear
You said the world was bad
And then you shook my ear
You said it was a fact
Everybody's haunted
By a past they hate...
I’m hearing echoes of the words you said
Yeah you filled my head….

Hey, I don't wanna look back now
Even in the worst of times
Hey, look at my shadow
It's the shadow of a child

You filled my head with fear
You said the world was bad
And then you shook my ear
You said it was a fact
Everybody's haunted
By a past they hate...
Nothing is important
Memory locked the gate
And if the door would open
Reveal a better place
Do I still have dreams
In this frozen state?
Everybody's haunted
By a past they hate...
I'm hearing echoes of the words you said
Yeah you filled my head…

You Wont Change

We're like two generals - tired of battling
We want to send our armies home
And all this time you've been my friend and saviour
So don't you think that I should know
You hide yourself to survive

You won't change and I won't change
The fire of love went up in flames
We both have eyes we both can see
There's no win in victory
You're coming through the open door
Against the rule , against the law

You brought the past to me - a trace of memories
The boy was happy , but the man is sad
We always hoped we'd stay alive and stupid
Never to be a "know it all" dead
That hides away to survive…

You won't change and I won't change
The fire of love went up in flames
We both have eyes – and both can see
That there's no win in victory
No hang-ups no signs of blows
You gave me directions now I don't know
You're coming through the open door
Against the rule against the law

Your Lips Are Sealed

Can't tell you in full
What a secret will do
In a world of fiction everything is true
And too much trouble
Won't be enough
To get to the place where the end had begun
Emotions are blind
Hey but now I'm fine…

You lay yourself down
On a track of lies
You know where that leads
You're looking for something
You've been trying to hide
But your lips are sealed

A soul's made of love
And love's made of time
So except for the end there's no limits for life
But when things go
And there's nowhere to cross
You forget the truth, and miss your train of thoughts
Emotions are blind
But now I'm fine…

You lay yourself down
On a track of lies
You know where that leads
You're looking for something
You've been trying to hide
But your lips are sealed
Lay yourself down
On a track of tears
That's how a secret ls

ZCMI

Say if you see a vicious lightning on the nighttime sky
There's no use checkin' the starmap or aski daddy why
And if you get me on the wire I'll give you this reply:
See I'm comin' higher'n'higher over chimneypot'n'spire
ZCMI Yeah! I'm that high flyin' guy
ZCMI And when the moon sails by
ZCMI I smile and wave goodbye
ZCMI

Beyond the end of space to the future and back
In search of solid ground to plant our flag
Yeah! We planned to build a base but the sky was too black
See I'm comin' higher'n'higher over chimneypot'n'spire
ZCMI Yeah! I'm that high flyin' guy
ZCMI And when the moon sails by
ZCMI I smile and wave goodbye
ZCMI
ZCMI Surrender or die!
ZCMI I'm that high flyin' guy
ZCMI Yeah! I smile and wave goodbye...
ZCMI When the moon sails by....
Yeah! I'm the ZCMI
