all Spacehog lyrics



In the meantime
And in the end we shall achieve in time
The thing they call divine
When all the stars will smile for me
When all is well and well is all for all
And forever after
Maybe in the meantime wait and see

CHORUS
We love the all the all of you
Our lands are green and skies are blue
When all in all we're just like you
We love the all of you

And when I cry for me I cry for you
With tears of holy joy
And did I ever say I'd never play
Or fly toward the sun
Maybe in the meantime, something's gone

CHORUS

Well that sounds fine so I'll see you sunshine
Give my love to the future of the humankind
Okay, okay, it's not okay.
While it's on my mind there's a girl that fits the crime
For a future love dream that I'm still to find
But in the meantime.

Spacehog
Well I'm standing on the launch pad
Looking at the stars.
I'm waiting for the countdown to begin
I'm not sure where I'm going
No, I've no way of knowing

CHORUS
But when the signal comes
It's 5, 4, 3, 2, 1!
Baby I'm a Spacehog
a Spacehog, a Spacehog, a Spacehog

Well now I see the moon
We got here oh so soon
The earth looks very different from up here
I'm picking up strange signals
I hope I'll be okay

Starside
Like when you fall from the sky
And see the world from the side
Love always gets in the way
Just like in Hutch and Starsky

I'd like to leave without a trace
Blow you all to outer space
See you later, now I'm gone
So long, I'll see you when I'm
Starside
Tell me when I'm home
Starside
Tell me when I'm home

See how we'll fall like a child
Watch them collide
Love always gets in the way
Just like in Hutch and Starsky

I'd like to leave without a trace
Press record and then erase
See you later, now I'm gone
So long, I'll see you when I'm
Starside
Tell me when I'm home
Starside
Tell me when I'm home
Tell me when I'm...homeback to top
Candyman
Oh hear my prayer you people please
Incline your tiny minds to me
It's time to kiss the candyman
It's high time you were here instead of
Fighting, I don't want to fight
But if by chance the cold wind blows I've
Got the drugs to keep it up
Well I know which way the money goes

Up and down the city road
In and out we reap and sow
Rewards I've lost and never known
Which way the money goes

CHORUS
Candyman, candyman, candyman
The candyman took it
Candyman, candyman, candyman
The money go round

So up and down the city roads
In and out we reap and sow
The rewards I've lost and never known
Which way the money grows

Money grows on money trees
Pay the price for liberties and then
All we've lost is all we need
To feed those wilting seedlings

There's more than stones and sticks at stake
If you pull a rope tight it will create
A tension like a brick will break
If thrown against the road

CHORUS

Now the air is stinking breath
Like those who piss on thirsty men
I'll raise my glass to all of them
In come the assholes who can smell the money
As they chase the blood and flesh as though they
Only ever had enough to keep their withered spirits up

There's more than stones and sticks at stake
If you pull a rope tight it will create
A tension like a brick will break
If thrown against the road

CHORUSback to top
Space is the place
Prelude to Space is the Place:
Good afternoon and welcome. Today we celebrate the songs of two of my head parishoners,
Royston and Antony Langdon. In this song, they deal candidly with themes of brotherly love and
homosexuality. Turn now to page number 372, Space is the Place.

SONG

And when you kiss your other lover
Well I will try to understand
And just because you're fucking him
It doesn't mean you don't love me
I do what you want, be what you want to be

CHORUS
Space is the place where I will go when I am all alone and
When nobody calls me on the phone and I am all alone and
I'm meditating in the zone, all alone and
Space is the place where I will go

And just because you kissed your brother
It doesn't mean to say you're gay
'Cause even when you're fucking him
It doesn't mean you don't love me
I do what you want, be what you want to be

CHORUSback to top
Never coming down Part 1
We are never coming down
I got up, can't get down
It's like when you get to
the start of the day
The start of the day go run run away

We're still never coming down
the hair of a dog in the face of a clown
like when you get to the start of a day
the start of a day go run run awayback to top
Cruel to be kind
Well I done my time in the jail of your mind
and I dug all I could toward the good of your kind
but they say it's better to be twisted black and blue
chopped down like an old wooden tree and planted new
than it is to spend a life time in the jail of your mind

CHORUS
But you don't have to be cruel to be kind
and you don't have to be a fool to be blind
and you don't have to be a down and out
to be down sometimes

Her dreams were full of dreams like leaves in the wind
that were scattered to the edges of the world and back again
Oh there's more to me than you can see from here my friends
here there are no why's so why do you pretend
I hear my critic laugh and he's my only friend

CHORUS

And now that I'm free from the jail of your mind
and I feel rather tied like a crying child
I wanted to be better than the rest
new kind of man, lot more than blood and flesh
but now I'm left on my own in the jail of my mind

CHORUSback to top
Shipwrecked
I wonder as I wandered
Do you wonder me?
I always sit, and think of you
And smile in memory

CHORUS
So if you raise a glass
To love you passed
Raise a glass to me
Cause I'm lonely as a sailor
Ship Wrecked on the sea

I always thought the captain's wife
she's the one for me
she may not be a painting
but she's the one for me

CHORUS

And as the stars fly by me
So the ocean binds me
And I'm as lonely as a sailor
Ship Wrecked on the seaback to top
Only a few
can't decide why all of my confidence
Is left high and dry all over and out
The truth should be known for all of it's consequence
Hangs in the balance and shadows my doubt

CHORUS
There's only a few like you
There's only one I to compromise
There's only a few who do
Big boys don't cry

So take me away from this loneliness
facing the shadows and hiding the lights
Truth should be known without which I'm all alone
Lost between this world and hiding from life

CHORUS

And when I get there I will find youback to top
The last dictator
I can't take the truth
From all the lies we've laid
I never caught that perfect light
Or saw those sunset rays
So burn the new age magazines
You preachers and the past
You widowed wives of instigators
I want to be the last

CHORUS
I am the last dictator
You saw the sun today
I am the last dictator
You wanted me this way

I can't take the truth
And all those other games
Like Caesar and hid Christians
The lions never waned
A clever turn of phrase
like 'Belsen was a gas'
I want to see my future first
I want be the last

CHORUSback to top
Never coming down Part 2
We are never coming down
I got up, can't get down
It's like when you get to
the start of the day
The start of the day go run run away

We're still never coming down
the hair of a dog in the face of a clown
like when you get to the start of a day
the start of a day go run run away

The moral of the story lies
Behind the holes that pass four eyes
Between the cracks in shallow lives
Let the candyman decide

And when you're older just remember
It's not so long since you was younger
Roll around and you're always high
Always look but you never find
Everybody in the world is bentback to top
Zeroes
Please excuse me
I meant no harm in being born
As world falls open wide
Like a wounded solider falls
Breaks backs in silence
Don't fall around me this time
Don't fall around me this time

My lost awakening
I've found the same as life before
When after another lonely wounded solider falls
like light fantastic
that falls upon my shoulder
fall
don't fall upon my shoulder

She gave me a call
So I gave her a smile
When I asked her for love
And what I should dial
She said 'Zero, zero, zero, zero, zero'

Please excuse me
I meant no harm in being born
As world falls open wide
Like a wounded solider falls
Breaks backs in silence
Don't fall around me this time
Don't fall around me this time

I gave her a car
So she gave me a smile
When I asked her for love
And what I should drive
She said 'Zero, zero, zero, zero, zero'back to top
To be a millionare.....was it likely
He shot his mother down
With a gun that he had found
He dragged her by the hair
And sat her in a chair

CHORUS
He knew that he was wrong
Now all his friends were gone
But Terry's only care
Was to be a millionaire

At school he played the fool
And on linoleum he ruled
The other children stared
But he would kick and pull their hair

CHORUS

Remember Terry's song
And your future won't be long
You can be happy where you are
Or as lonely as a star

Remember Terry's song
and your future will be long
You can be happpy where you are
or as lonely as a star

You can be happy where you are
Or as lonely as a star
But Terry's only care
Was To Be a Millionaireback to top
