Sympathy Love & Religion Have Taught Me Fear

 

Sympathy

To consider and pity others, Is a skill Iíve found hard to obtain? Iíve walked down the path of respect, To understand your pain. Locked myself away and turned out the lights, Being used so many times before, Climbing the walls of anger in my room, To contain;   the Fear;    inside my head. Risk entering the light in the dark times, Are People withholding shame? Just to fall into a big black hole, And then reach for sympathy again. Locked myself away and turned out the lights, Being used so many times before, Climbing the walls of anger in my room, To contain;   the Fear;    inside my head. Locked myself away and turned out the lights, Being used so many times before, Climbing the walls of anger in my room, To contain;   the Fear;    inside my head.

 

Love

You canít lift the weight of Love, The strongman said; Fear it, the weight will hold you down, You canít escape from the shackles of Love, A cell man said; Fear it, cause it will hold your Heart. Take your Heart and tear it apart. You canít escape the grounds of Love, Said the Lion; Fear it chasing you down. You canít afford the price of Love, The Banker said; Fear the interest rate going sky high, Fear it taking your Heart and tearing it apart.   Love is when youíre lost, Love is when youíve been rejected and left alone. Love is when youíre cross,   When the telephone donít ring no-one wants to talk to you. And I canít wait to see her face, To touch her skin, once again. Love is all alone, May be I should pick up the phone. Love is when youíre lost, Love is when youíve been rejected and left alone.  Love is when youíre cross, When the telephone donít ring no-one wants to talk to you. No! you canít lift the weight of Love. Or escape the grounds of Love. The Lions hunting you it will track you down. And the interest rate is too high. I just want to try. And I canít wait to see her face, To touch her skin, Hold her body once again. And I canít wait to feel her face, In my hands, Once again, once again. To smell her, To touch her skin, Hold her body next to mine.Love has taught me Fear.

 

Religion

What religion are you? And does it matter what I think about or what I do? Do you truly believe? Is someone teaching you the things that only I will fear?What religion are you? Christian, Muslim, Hindu or a Jew? Do our Godís share the same view? About the treatment you give to your fellow man. HATE! Is all the rage! RAGE! Something talked about in War. WAR! A difference of faith! FAITH! Fear what youíre fighting for. What religion are you? And did you come here to impress me with your views? Has your Father explained why? There is no-one left in your Family anymore? HATE! Is all the rage! RAGE! Something talked about in War. WAR! A difference of faith! FAITH! Fear what youíre fighting for. Is Religion being used by a privileged few? To fuel a War.  Could it be used by you and me? To love each other as it was meant to be. God save our chosen ways, cause I donít want to believe this anymore. What religion are you? Christian, Muslim, Hindu or a Jew? Do you feel like I do? That some pricks are creating all this shit out there. HATE! Is all the rage! RAGE! Something talked about in War. WAR! A difference of faith! FAITH! Fear what youíre fighting for. HATE! Is all the rage! RAGE! Something talked about in War. WAR! A difference of faith! FAITH! Fear what youíre fighting for.

 

Fear

When the evening comes, the lights go out;  I am here on my own. I turn my head too, lie against the wall as all the ghosts come out. My fear is everyone's fear; my fears are loose. I walk into a spiders web, I am afraid to turn around. A statue I become to think, about what has gone wrong; I can feel her eyes on me. My fear is everyone's fear; my fears are loose. But the one thing I fear most in life is failure. I try so hard not to be like my piers. To loose respect in the face of uncertainty is not calming. To fail is to loose life's blood running through my veins. Me failure; don't come to me. I will drown in your tears. The sympathy I've given, Love that I have received, Religion misgiven. All have taught me fear, All have taught me fear. But the one thing I fear most in life is failure. I try so hard not to be like my piers. To loose respect in the face of uncertainty is not calming. To fail is to loose life's blood running through my veins.

 

Thanks very much

Thanks very much for looking away, Thanks very much for leaving me today, Thanks very much for giving me so much soul, Thanks very much for saying the things you meant not to say, And the World looks better for me today, I lost a nightmare I lost a Ghost which hung over me, So thanks very, King much, but I win this time. Thanks very much for telling me half of the truth most of the time, Thanks very much I donít love you anymore, Thanks very much I appreciate that youíre gone, Thanks very much for looking away, And the World looks better for me today, I lost a nightmare I lost a Ghost which hung over me, So thanks very, fucking much, but I win this time.

 

Sympathy love & Religion have taught me fear

Sympathy where you been, Iíve been waiting for you, though the cold wind blows through your hair, and love where you been, Iíve been waiting for you, and your face lights the room as I see you, Religion where you been, Iíve been talking to  myself again, Through the long days behind I though of you, Fear  where you been, because I needed you, As a friend and I have waited for a friend, Now the time has come when I have waited for too long, And the Sea has turned green for me I must be strong, Carry on through the changing times turn my soul to see, one of lifeís comforts in front of me that I may never feel.

 

Hooker

Can you treat me kindly? For the service that I give to you, Will take a part of me and forever stay with you. For I am a humble woman and you a stronger man, Could take my secrets from me, with one strike of your hand. Can you treat me kindly? For a service that I give to you, Will take my soul from me and leave it with you. Cause I am a Hooker! For you to come and see, Hookers are easy to friend, Leave your inhibitions and I will sooth you mind. I wonder why, you come for me, your wife should never find, why does all this happen? In the backseat of her mind. When she tries so hard, to please you! Can you treat me kindly? For the service that I give to you, Will take a part of me and forever stay with you. For I am a humble woman and you a stronger man, Could take my secrets from me, with one strike of your hand. I wonder why, you, come for me, your wife should never find, why does all this happen? In the backseat of her mind. When she tries so hard to please you! To please you, Ohh to please you! To please you!

 

Iím on my own again

Canít understand all this pain Iím in, the talk of you is under my skin again, Iím on my side with the pain, tell me youíre here to stay. Iím on my own here again, the stories Iíve read keep me half insane, the book I wrote the night about you, all this text tells my soul, that she walked out on me. Canít understand all this pain Iím in, the talk of you is with all my friends. I tell the wharf about the pain, He tells me youíll come back again, The stories Iíve read keep me half insane, The book I wrote tells about all the pain, she walked out on me again, Iím on my own here again, The truth it never ends, She walked out on me, Iím on my own again, The truth it never ends, The truth it never ends.

 

Addict

Picture the Addict in my head, and show it to someone else, look at the Addict in my soul, Help me to find more love, Drink donít tame the Addict in my head, Buy it for someone else, Drugs canít tame the Addict in my soul, Sell them to find me more love. Friends donít tame the Addict in my head, Tell them to find someone else, Family donít tame the Addict in my soul, Tell them to find me more love, Drink donít tame the Addict in my head, Buy it for someone else, Drugs donít tame the Addict in my soul, Sell them to find me more love. Cause Iím an addict, addicted to your love. Cause Iím an addict, an addict for your soul, Cause Iím an addict, addicted to your love. Cause Iím an addict, I just canít get enough of your love, Cause Iím an addict, I just canít get enough of your love, Cause Iím an addict, I just canít get enough of your love.

 

I see stars tonight

Every time I look into your eyes, I see that stars are burning bright in Auburn skies, Every time I see your face in front of me, Ohh, I can tell that youíre my destiny, And Iím waiting for tomorrow, You are coming home to me, Sunshine high above the ocean, I see stars tonight on me, Every time I fall into your open arms, All the world is turning please donít set me free, Now youíre here I feel so self assured, Ohh, I canít help myself from touching stars, And Iím waiting for tomorrow, you are coming home to me, Sunshine high above the ocean, I see stars tonight on me, and Iím waiting for tomorrow, you are coming home to me, Sunshine high above the ocean, I see stars tonight on me.

 

Plastic ships

A plastic ship fell down here from heaven yesterday, I donít know why. A mother tried to save her boy from catching it again, I donít know why. Falling from the trees, playing in the breeze, save your soul it needs you. Sending down through endless seeds, catch a phrase, I donít know why. My father saw my fate today; think he might have prayed I donít know why. Falling from grace is easy if you please, but save your soul it needs you, a plastic ship fell down here from a little boy today, I donít know why. A mother tried to tell her boy itís only a toy let it go, I donít know why. All of my needs are saying to me, Save your soul please, Canít think why. Settle down through ancient roads and memories, I donít know. Dragonfly sells cookies, floating round my head, I donít know why. And Iím falling from this space, But save my soul it needs you. Save your soul from heaven, save your soul, It needs you. Save your soul from heaven, save your soul, It needs you. A little boy fell from heaven today. I donít know why

Honey well is mine

The Fence is the same, De-JA-vu she said, This place Iíve seen before, So guess whatís next, The Gardens grown over, There is a key to be found, Open the door to find, A Waterfall and a lake nearby, The Sea, the Moon, the sunshine, Will awaken you to find, That the Lakes are filled with Moonshine And the Honey well, is mine. The trees covered the place  we had gone there quite a lot, We stood over there, In that Honey well of mine, So take me to the lake and Iíll find, The key to love which opens my mind, Swim in the Moons light donít be blind, And the Honey well,  is mine. And the trees will bend to show you, The blessedness of your life, Rein on you through this place of mine, And the breeze will blow you to me, The love you know youíll find, And the Honey well  is mine The Sea, The Moon, The Sunshine, Will awaken you to find, That the Lakes are filled with Moonshine, And the Honey well, Ooh- is mine. So take me to the lake and Iíll find, The key to love which opens my mind, Swim in the Moons light donít be blind, And the Honey well, Ooh- is mine.
