DARK ANGEL (For real ... the ghost of shadows past) The Universe weaves the net I dance on -- the dance of life. The Universe weaves the net I dance on -- the dance of life. Three angels, "Nemesis, "Love" and "Sting" -- burned my soul. So ... time to dust my intuition ... Love is blue, love is grief and love is ... The Universe weaves the net I dance on -- the dance of life. The Universe weaves the net I dance on -- the dance of life. Lust and power, the lady rides my many headed beast. And dreaming the dark, the magician sets his hawk into my sky. The Universe weaves the net I dance on -- the dance of life. The Universe weaves the net I dance on -- the dance of life. "Fear Not ... Fear Not" "What is not real never was"..."What is not real never was" "And never will it be"..."And never will it be." Three demons, "Nemesis, "Love" and "Sting" -- froze my soul. So ... time to trust my inner voices ... Love is grey love is free and love is ... The Universe weaves the net I dance on -- the dance of life. The Universe weaves the net I dance on -- the dance of life. The Universe weaves the net I dance on -- the dance of life... ("You are holding up my head ... so I can breathe") Lyrics by Jayl and Landa ©
THE SLINGS “To be or not to be?” The question @ the heart of me, The beauties & the curses & the deadliest of skies. The slings & arrows fly, I choose another day to die… ‘Cos everybody here says “Hi!” Merchants of Desire & the Guests Masters of the Vision & the Quests Paragons of Virtue & the Ruck Dance a Tango with Lady Luck Juno in the tempest scorned … He couldn’t say he hadn’t been warned. Grand Dukes, Princes & Czars … History unwritten in scars. Hades, Erebus & Styx … built the bloody wells with bricks. Nuit – Our lady of the Star … Well I think that she’s come real far… Yeah I think she’s come far! Walls of superstition cannot hide the apparition, In conditions, during missions he occasionally drops by. Ragism & Tagism are busy watching out for him… ‘Cos everybody here says “Hi!” Prophets of Reality & Rhyme Guardians of Purgatory & Time You ran away from me, I knew you weren’t no missionary, But something of a visionary, or nothing in between. Where are you bleeding from? It’s oozing from another song… ‘And everybody here says “Hi!” His roar is bigger than his bite, but you know he’ll put you out of sight! Orpheus – his head is in the stream … He’s screamin’ loud he’s been cut clean! The Sirens are a-wailing in the dell … I can hear them all the way from hell! Fanatic opposition torn … Everyone must be reborn. Kin – Red Night of the Realm … Well I think he gonna make a great film…Yeah a really great film! LadyTree, we got so dreadful low, and even little children know! Lived the summer fantasy with Queen of Sensuality, and Maiden of Vitality - the one that got away, She works enchanted wood … where everyone is feelin’ good And everybody there says “Hi!” I owe you one life and a lake ... Yours to drink and yours to take For all belonged to all except thieves … Pilfering their moments from chiefs. At the Temple of the sun she glides … and he’s no longer on the slide. The rustle of the lovers in the breeze … hanging in the air, unfreezed. Love the lucky lady in the car … Well I think she’s gonna go far…Yeah she’s gonna go far! ‘Cos she really is a Star! “Hey Phantom of the irony and shame. are you ready? Shall we play the next game?” Lyrics by Jayl De Lara ©
DELIVERED Murky morn a-clockin’ I’m awoken by a shockin’… It’s the postman he’s a knockin’… Knockin’ on my chamber door! He’s a giver and a quiver and he makes me fuckin’ shiver… With a sliver he delivers a letter from the war. Tear it open read it fast, try to take the icy blast… Writing from the past ‘o’ the stream beyond the door. I suck it in and burn the toast, I can’t believe it’s from a ghost… Who loved the most from up the coast … On some Plutonian shore. CH: Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely way, Singing “All goin’ back”… delivery, delivery… Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely back, yeah, La la la da da … delivery delivery, yeah. Eternal moon. A charm bar. Thrillarolla. Apart. Take her far down, make a sound … Never know – can’t get back, even as a maniac… Even swalla like a boa like a goa on a cello … ghetto…ghetto in the meadow … Feeling like a song – “Ah better now la la la love?” Everybody feels the same way every day … All heart, getcha’ start, make love, play it hard. CH: Oh roll it, roll it, roll it, roll it back, yeah, Is it all going back? … delivery, delivery… Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely back, Got it all in the bag … delivery, delivery. Wandering, wandering, delivery, delivery, oooh somebody, yeah! Oooooh yeah! … Coming soon … the storm of storms, the violent icy blue, he warns. Smoking souls and smiting fates, trickery in the dark awaits. CH: Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely day, yeah, Let it all send back … delivery, yeah delivery… Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely back, yeah, Keep it all in the bag … delivery, yeah delivery… Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely back, yeah, Take it all in the bag … delivery, yeah yeah… Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely back, yeah, Take it all in the bag … delivery, yeah delivery, say delivery, delivery, delivery….Delivery, delivery, delivery…. Nevermore! by Jayl De Lara & Andy Wood ©
EVENLODE Five to five - exhilarating, cool spring drive, I tell you friend it’s motivating, great to be alive, The sun is setting right across the Western hills, Ferocious red a glowin’ ‘bove the spires and mills, Been reelin’ and ruckin’ … our feet on fire, Coiled like leads - you know we’re real hot wires. Waiting at the crossroads where the four winds blowed… Across the roamin’ fields to the Evenlode. Dreamin’ of the lady - delicious like a flower, Dying to reveal to her the secret of the hour, Knew that she would kill me - murder with a kiss, Pay the price and smile through ferocity and bliss, A capsule - still would stand all time like amber traps a fly, Unmoving and unfeeling with the eons rushing by, Cast in rock - a million years, before the dawn of road… But way behind the birth of the Evenlode. Climbed a dusty tower with a clock upon its face, Right up to the top - with a rivelino grace, Stood there with a leaning stance – thrilled about the chase, Glimpse of bliss & harmony, a twist in it’s embrace, Mesmerized and energized – right at the same time, Tried to catch a breathe, hold a second so sublime. Looking at this stunning view when suddenly time slowed… In the twilight valley of the Evenlode. Destiny is calling us - feel it in the nerves, Biting like a crocodile - it pricks and jabs and swerves, Recognise the feelin’ but cannot find its place, Beginning or the ending of the supersonic race? Perhaps it doesn’t matter after all is said and done, You have to learn to walk the walk, the essence is the fun. Me - I love the winter sun and love it when it’s snowed… Especially on the rocky road to Evenlode. Lyrics by Jayl De Lara ©
