Ol' man river,
That ol' man river,
He mus' know sumpin'
But don't say nuthin'
He jus' keeps rollin'
He keeps on rollin' along.

But it don't snow here
It stays pretty green
I'm going to make a lot of money
Then I'm going to quit this crazy scene
Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on

Somebody's shouting
Up at a mountain
Only my own words return
Nobody's out there
It's a deception
When will I ever learn?
I'm alone here
With emptiness eagles and snow
Unfriendliness chilling my body
And whispering pictures of home

I lit a Fire with the love you left behind
It burned wild, and crept up the mountainside
I followed your ashes into outerspace...
I can't look out the window
I can't look at this place...
I can't look at the stars.

I fell into a burning ring of fire,
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher,
And it burns, burns, burns,
The ring of fire, the ring of fire.

It's not funny, my ass is on fire
Paraplegic, inhuman liar
Carve a smile on your face
Everything's great
Suffocate

But you know I'm a liar
'Cause when we kiss

At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet
And a freight train running through the middle of my head
Only you can cool my desire
I'm on fire

I've seen fire and I've seen rain,
I've seen rainy days that I thought would never end...

Baby's good to me, you know,
She's happy as can be, you know,
She said so.
I'm in love with her and I feel fine.

So good, so good, I got you

And I can't fight this feeling anymore,
I've forgotten what I started fighting for,
It's time to bring this ship into the shore,
And throw away the oars, forever.

The face that launched a thousand ships
Is sinking fast, that happens you know
The water gets below
Seems not very long ago
Lovelier she was than any that I know

There's a ship lies rigged and ready in the harbor
Tomorrow for old England she sails
Far away from your land of endless sunshine
To my land full of rainy skies and gales
And I shall be aboard that ship tomorrow
Though my heart is full of tears at this farewell

And from the shelter of my mind
Through the window of my eyes
I gaze beyond the rain-drenched streets
To England where my heart lies.

And the world is like an apple,
Whirling silently in space,
Like the circles that you find,
In the windmills of your mind.

We were waiting for the end of the world
Waiting for the end of the world
Waiting for the end of the world
Dear Lord, I sincerely hope you're coming
'Cause you really started something

Find a wheel, and it goes round, round, round,
As it skims along with a happy sound,
As it goes, along the ground, ground, ground,
'Till it leads you to the one you love!

In the circle of life
It's the wheel of fortune
It's the leap of faith
It's the band of hope
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the circle, the circle of life

There's no more coming back this way
The path is overgrown and strewn with thorns
They've torn the life-blood from your naked eyes
Cast aside to be forlorn

Come on home girl, he said with a smile
You don't have to love me and let's get high awhile
But try to understand
Try to understand
Try, try, try to understand
I'm a magic man

Baby's so high that she's skying,
Yes, she's flying, afraid to fall,
I'll tell you why baby's crying,
'Cause she's dying, aren't we all?

So, cantaloupe eyes come to me tonight,

My baby drove up in a brand new Cadillac
Yes she did!
My baby drove up in a brand new Cadillac
She said, "Hey, come here, Daddy!"
"I ain't never comin' back!"

Shut down by radio
Told boss man where to go
Turned off my brain control
That's the way I wanna rock 'n' roll

Video killed the radio star,
In my mind and in my car, we can't rewind, we've gone too far,
Pictures came and broke your heart,
Put all the blame on VTR.

By the dark of the moon - I planted
But there came an early snow
There's been a hoot-owl howling by my window now
For six nights in a row
She's coming for me I know
And on Wildfire we're both gonna go

And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
You shout and no one seems to hear
And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon

When you hear the sound of thunder, don’t you get too scared
Just grab your thunder buddy, and say these magic words:
F*** you, Thunder! You can s*** my d***
You can’t get me, Thunder, because you’re just God’s farts!

We belong to the light, we belong to the thunder
We belong to the sound of the words we've both fallen under
Whatever we deny or embrace for worse or for better
We belong, we belong, we belong together
