Under A Blood Red Sky

 

 

Gloria

I try to sing this song
I, I try to stand up
But I can't find my feet

I try
I try to speak up
But only in You
I'm complete

Gloria
In the dominae
Gloria
Exultate
Gloria
Gloria
Oh, Lord, loosen my lips

I try to sing this song
I, I try to get in
But I can't find the door

The door is open
You're standing here
You let me in

Gloria
In the dominae
Gloria
Exultate
Oh, Lord, if I had anything
Anything at all

I'd give it to You
I'd give it to You

11 O'Clock Tick Tock

 

It's cold outside
It gets so hot in here
And the boys and girls collide
To the music in my ear

Hear the children crying
And I know it's time to go
I hear the children crying
Take me home

A painted face
And I know we haven't long
We thought that we had the answers
It was the questions we had wrong

Hear the children crying
And I know it's time to go
I hear the children crying
Take me home

Sad song, sad song
Sad song, sad song

La lah la lah...La lah la lah...La lah lah...
La lah la lah...La lah la lah...La lah lah...
La lah la lah...La lah la lah...La lah lah...
La lah la lah...La lah la lah...La lah lah...

Sad song, sad song
Sad song, sad song

Call out your name
Call out in shame
Call out your name
Call out
You better call out
Call, call, call out

I Will Follow

 

I was on the outside, when you said
You said you needed me
I was looking at myself, I was blind
I could not see

A boy tries hard to be a man

His mother takes him by his hand
If he stops to think he starts to cry
Oh why?

If you walkaway, walkaway
I walkaway, walkaway-I will follow

I was on the inside
When they pulled the four walls down
You looked through the window, I was lost
I am found

If you walkaway, walkaway
I walkaway, walkaway-I will follow

(Your eyes make a circle
I see you when I go in there)

If you walkaway, walkaway
I walkaway, walkaway-I will follow

I will follow
I will follow

Party Girl

 

I know a girl, a girl called Party
Party Girl
I know she wants more than a party
Party Girl
And she won't tell me her name
Oh no, not me

I know a boy, a boy called Trash
Trash Can
I know he does all that he can
Wham Bam
And she won't tell me his name
Oh no, not me

(Guitar hero?)

When I was three, I thought the world
     revolved around me
I was wrong
And so I sing along
And if you dance, then dance with me

I know a girl, a girl called Party
Party Girl
I know she wants more than a party
Party Girl
I know a boy, a boy called Trampoline
You know what I mean

I think I know what he wants
I think I know what he wants
I think I know what you want
I think I know what you want
I think I know what you want
I think I know what you want
I think I know what he wants

Sunday Bloody Sunday

 

I can't believe the news today
I can't close my eyes and make it go away
How long,
How long must we sing
     this song?
How long? Tonight we can be as one
Broken bottles under children's feet
Bodies strewn across a dead end street
But I won't heed the battle call
It puts my back up, puts my back up
     against the wall

Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday

And the battle's just begun
There's many lost, but tell me
     who has won?
The trenches dug within our hearts
And mother's children brothers,
     sisters torn apart

Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday

How long,
How long must we sing
     this song?
How long? Tonight we can be as one
Tonight, tonight

Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday

Wipe the tears from your eyes
Wipe your tears away
Wipe your bloodshot eyes

Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday

And it's true we are inmune
When fact is fiction and TV is
     reality
And today the millions cry

We eat and drink while tomorrow they die
The real battle just begun
To claim the victory Jesus won
On a Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday

The Electric Co.

 

Boy
Stupid boy
Don't sit at the table
Until you are able to toy
Toy, Broken toy

Shout and shout
You're inside out

If you don't know, electric co.
If you don't know, electric co.

Red, running red
You play for real
The toy could fill
Hole in your head

You shout and shout
You're spoon fed

If you don't know the electric co.
If you don't know
Electric co.

If you don't know the electric co.
If you don't know the electric co.
If you don't know the electric co.

New Year's Day

 

All is quiet on New Year's Day
A world in white gets underway
And I want to be with you
Be with you night and day
Nothing changes on New Year's Day
I will be with you again
I will be with you again

Under a blood-red sky
A crowd has gathered in black and white
Arms entwined, the chosen few
Newspapers say, it says it's true it's true
And we can break through
Though torn in two we can be one
I will begin again, I will begin again
Oh and maybe the time is right
Oh maybe tonight
I will be with you again
I will be with you again

And so we are told this is the golden age
And gold is the reason for the wars we wage
Though I want to be with you
To be with you night and day
Nothing changes on New Year's Day

"40"

 

I waited patiently for the Lord
He inclined and heard my cry
He brought me up out of the pit
Out of the miry clay

I will sing
Sting a new song
I will sing
Sting a new song

How long
To sing this song?
How long
To sing this song?

How long, how long
How long, how long
To sing this song?

Well he set my feet upon a rock
And made my footsteps firm
Many will see
Many will see and hear

I will sing
Sting a new song
I will sing
Sting a new song

How long
To sing this song?
How long
To sing this song?
