The Scarecrow Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level James Joyce
1. Twisted Mind (6:12)
One of a kind they say
They've never seen before
Investigate the aberration
Disorder in the core

I never tried to hide away
Or tried to keep your pace
You walked me to the slaughter
With a smile upon your face

From the cradle to the madhouse
A twisted mind
There's no way out of this hell
For twisted mind

There's no way out
There's no way out

You come to see the healer
So don't you be afraid
They call me tranqualizer
I'm here to isolate

We paint in black and white and you're
The dirty in between
Monstosity of nature
A virulent disease

From the cradle to the madhouse
A twisted mind
There's no way out of this hell
For twisted mind

There's no way out
There's no way out

Can't you see - can't you see
That you are not like anyone
You never see
Through anyone else's eyes
Who am I to certify
The sanity of twisted mind
The victim of perception
A twisted mind

Misprizing - Chastising
Subhuman fragmentizing
Sensation - Aberration
Repulsive - Tantalizing

Misprizing - Chastising
Subhuman fragmentizing
Sensation - Aberration
Repulsive - Tantalizing

From the cradle to the madhouse
A twisted mind
There's no way out of this hell
For twisted mind

There's no way out
There's no way out

From the cradle to the madhouse
A twisted mind
There's no way out of this hell
For twisted mind

There's no way out
There's no way out

There's no way out
There's no way out

There's no way out
There's no way out
2. The Scarecrow (11:14)
I'm just a loser in the game of love
I'm just an stray boy in the shade
And how I wish to know what love is like
To find someone to contemplate

There's a voice and a million answers
To the questions I don't ask
A demon I've got to contain
When I'm walking through the fen
Getting Deep into the black
Whispers I can't restrain - Don't give in

Rise to fame - time will come
Make your claim - time has come
For the crow to fly away

So you're an angel meant to walk down here
And you believe it's all divine
And you don't play by all those tempo**l rules
You watch the world begin to die, alright

When the lamb's been torn to pieces
I've been crashing from the sky
Fallen to care for the prey
They put a spoke right in your wheel
I'm the one to dare the weak
To push you all over the pain - you give in, oh

Rise to fame - time will come
Make your claim - time has come
For the crow to fly away

I close my eyes and I see what's coming my way, oh yeah
He's got treasure in his eyes that he's gonna turn to clay

Hmm oh, I'm a stranger
I'm a changer, and I'm danger - maybe

Fallen angel waiting for the prey
The devil has come to take a maimed away
Penetration of the twisted mind
The evil is out for the weak and blind
I can feel it in your voice
Ever so sweet - No
Do I really have a choice? No, no, no!

Oh, you burn your feet on unholy ground
You roam the barren wicked plains abound
In evil eyes and evil speak
Abound in all you evil freaks
When you say it's all divine
And meant to be, yeah - Woah

What about your flesh and blood
And defiers like me

Their evil eyes are looking down on you
And those who don't are losing sight of you
Face the rage to chase away
The specter of disgrace and shame
Whithered roses dying on the ledge
A withered dreamer standing on the edge
You dream of love, wake up to pain
You're better off to join in my game

Then she'll be better off to cry contrite tears
One day she'll wonder why she had to let you disappear
Oh dear

Rise to fame - Your time has come
Time will come - To take the sun
Make your claim - You're drawn to the sound
Time has come - You're leaving ground
Rise to fame - The flight of the crow
Time will come - Cross the line
Time has come - For the crow to fly away

It's a flight to hell
Can you hear the bell
The devil has come
To take your soul away
A flight to hell - alright

I'm a stranger
I'm a changer
And I'm a danger - maybe
Fallen angel waiting for the prey
3. Shelter From The Rain (6:11)
Like a wheel I keep on turning
Straight ahead, it's got me burning
The melody - the dignity
Something is speaking to me
Night is cold and my soul is battered
Not afraid for the first no what I realize
We coincide I'll never belong to the tribe

And a sun is calling me to this ship of fools

Been dying for a sign
when faith is beyond the line
When you find your love on wasted grounds
You're taking to the sound
It's Shelter From The Rain

No return from the way I've chosen
Cast away - chasing rainbows
condemn the lie
How could I make God believe I am blind?

We create by intuition
Call it fate - the tongue of angels in our soul
Feel it resound and carry you over the grind

All that's left is a song Giving Shelter From The Rain

Been dying for a sign,
when faith is beyond the line
When you find your love on wasted grounds
I'm taking to the sound
It's Shelter From The Rain

It's a dark and stormy night
Ain't it funny what it takes
To read the sign?
But I am always there
I am the footprints to your right
Man overlooks when running high
Young and blind

In your darkest lonely nights
Heed a voice to take you higher
Take you higher

As you stumble through the ruins
Let the spirit take you higher
And a song

Oh, and a song
I can hear a song
Oh, and the soul
I can hear a song

Been dying for a sign
when faith is beyond the line
When you find your love on wasted grounds
I'm taking to the sound
It's Shelter From The Rain

Been dying for a sign
when faith is beyond the line
When you find your love on wasted grounds
I'm taking to the sound
It's Shelter From The Rain
4. Carry Me Over (3:54)
Never been told my prayers would be answered
Wherever I go, I see you around
Never been told that something that beautiful
Would bring me up to let me down

Waiting up on the roof
Waiting up in the rain
Just to catch a glimpse of your face

Even when you're around
Still I'm out of sight, out of sound
In your world I'm out of place

Carry me over
Carry me over
Carry me over now
Carry me over
Carry me over
Carry me over now

You're like a ghost that I can't let go
You follow every step that I take
Never thought someone could be too close to you
Now across the street is miles away

And now I might as well
Be the man on the moon
I am watching but you don't seem aware

But I won't be around
I'll be out of sight, out of sound
Someone's gonna wait, somewhere

Carry me over
Carry me over
Carry me over now
Carry me over
Carry me over
Carry me over now

Carry me over
Carry me over
Carry me over now

Carry me over
Carry me over
Carry me over now
Somebody carry me over
Carry me over
Carry me over now

Carry me over
Carry me over
Carry me over now

Carry me over now
5. What Kind Of Love (4:57)
A dream of dwelling inside,
alone we come and alone we go.
And who am I to know what I feel?
Sympathy that's tearing me apart?
Attrachtion of the distance to heart of affinity?

What if love will leave your heart an open sore
And I can't reveal what even I don't know?
The love you feel you waste away on me.
What kind of love would let us bleed away?
No kind of love would make us bleed away.

If only you could be
the one to take a look inside.
I feel so incomplete.
A broken man in need of mother love.
I'm suffering in silence
And no one wants to see
And only god is watching as a bleed
a star above - my matching piece

What if love will leave your heart an open sore
And I can't reveal what even I don't know
The love you feel you waste away on me
What kind of love would let us bleed away
No kind of love would make us bleed away

Feel - that's all you gotta do
And it will heal you
Feel the pain to lead you home to peace of mind
Dwell inside
Feel - that's all you gotta do
And it will heal the wound
Feel the pain be a song for peace of mind
Dwell inside
6. Another Angel Down (5:42)
I am the master of the game
that s made a fool you
I m watching from the highest tower
You got the aura to enchant them - and a symphony
And I have got the power

You better taste - they call it life: my special area
I m breeding winners over there
Ain't it a sin to turn your back
on what you re given
It s time to take your share

God left me for dead - I've been turning my head
Away from the living - the time has come
To gamble for gain - To tear down the gate
And see what s inside

We rock the ball
Been smashed to the ground
Arose from devotion
To take a look and see what is inside
Sight of the crown: Another angel down
We rock the ball
I m facing my pain
With a rage and a symphony
Driven by the wounds I cannot hide
Rise above the crowd: another angel down

We ll see a black hole will be left up in the starry sky
We gotta mourn another angel
If I am just a light descending to caducity
It s still so far away

There s no tomorrow
I don t remember yesterday
I m just living for tonight
And all the love I m not gonna waste no more
I won t spit what s divine

They left you for dead - turning your head
Away form the living - from flesh and blood
You've got the draw and desire to claw
For fortune and fame

We rock the ball
Been smashed to the ground
Arose from devotion
To take a look and see what is inside
Sight of the crown: Another angel down
We rock the ball
I m facing my pain
With a rage and a symphony
Driven by the wounds I cannot hide
Rise above the crowd: another angel down
7. The Toy Master (6:22)
Don't you be afraid
Come and step inside and take a look around
I'm your holy grail in your candy store
To save you from the profound
They use to dream in only black and white
Can't you hear them scream drowning in the tide

Out in the cold I see water frozen in their eyes
What a sorry sight
I am willing to believe they would pay for a smile

I'm the master of toys
and all you girls and boys
are welcome to my wonderland
I'm the angel of joy
and I'm here to paint the void
Welcome to my world
to my dream factory

Say hello to the gentleman with the paint
The deeper you're in the blue
the sweeter the sound of your plaint
If only I had a heart it would brake - Oh, sure
And I wonder how much more they can take

Out in the cold I see water frozen in their eyes
What a sorry sight
I am willing to believe they would pay for a smile

I'm the master of toys
and all you girls and boys
are welcome to my wonderland
I'm the angel of joy
and I'm here to paint the void
Welcome to my world
I'm dealing in pain and little Novocaine
Welcome to my world, to my toy factory

No more struggle of the classes
No more struggle of the masses
On their knees - conformity

They are ready for a hero
They are flying at zero
It's their turn
to crash and burn

No more struggle of the classes
No more struggle of the masses
On their knees - conformity

They are ready for a hero
They are flying at zero
It's their turn
to crash and burn

Master of yer toys
All you girls and boys
are welcome to my wonderland
The angel of yer joy
And I'm here to paint the void
Welcome to my world
I've come to bring your pain
And a little Novocaine
Welcome to my world
8. Devil In The Belfry (4:41)
I dropped off in the shadows
the lead of tragedy
I open my eyes - blind by the spotlight
And what do I see?

Pushed by ambition
you've been granted admission
to the hall of acclaim
She denied you affection
Now listen the whole world
is screaming your name

I will forget her, but I won't forgive
The curtain has fallen
Behold the messiah

Riding high
The devil on the crest
For all the world to see - forevermore
I am I - the devil in the belfry
I'll be glorified - forevermore

Is it a sin to learn to be able
to live without love?
And is it a sin to put love under will
and control from above?

Devil in my fingers - pleasure at my feet
Mind out of sight
The shadow I'll cast shall darken her world
And ghost her at night

With each song you'll die a little for me
It won't leave a scar
Cause I've drawn the curtain

Riding high
The devil on the crest
For all the world to see - forevermore
I am I - the devil in the belfry
I'll be glorified - forevermore

Into the opera like moths to a flame
Spellbind their senses to follow the hero

Riding high
The devil on the crest
For all the world to see - forevermore
I am I - the devil in the belfry
I'll be glorified - forevermore
9. Cry Just A Little (5:14)
A heart out of affection, a night at the masquerade
You won some and you're lonesome
As the spotlight fades
Going forth pretending destination is at hand
When she's crying just a little just for me

I've seen them set off to the promised land
Escaping from the hurtings
They don't understand
a sense of satisfaction
On account of pristine tears
She's crying just a little more just like you

Why don't you cry, cry a little over me?
Why don't you lie?
Can't you tell me that I am hard to deny?
Can't she see what I am going through?
Cry just a little for me
Oh girl, a little for me

Afraid to give away waht you keep inside
There's a ghost in your mirror
Every lonesome night
And those nights are getting colder
And your heart is a frozen wound
Don't you wonder who'll be there when you awake

Why don't you cry, cry a little over me?
Why don't you lie?
Can't you tell me that I am hard to deny?
Can't she see what I am going through?
Cry just a little for me
Oh girl, a little for me

Why don't you cry, cry a little over me?
Why don't you lie?
Can't you tell me that I am, hard to deny?
Can't she see what I am going through?
Cry just a little for me
Oh cry, a little for me
10. I Don't Believe In Your Love (5:32)
No one around to hear your cries
No one there to even realize you grit your teeth
What are you afraid to lose when you're left alone
I'm the one to make you anything you wanna be

Never broke the silence
Never broke the ice
No more waiting
I gotta wipe her off my mind
Loving her is dying
Loving her is pain
Babylon I'm coming
Ready for the fray

I don't believe in your love
Tread on this bed of roses
I don't believe in your love
Don't give a fuck for roses

Don't give a damn for roses - no, no, no

You've been standing on the edge
Lost between agony and ecstasy
Take your share boy straightaway
It's all heavensent
She won't care:
They call their love divine, but it's all evil

Loving you was bleeding
So I had to break away
Darkness stretching out its hand
To save me from your sway
Cause loving you was wasting
Loving you was pain
Now angel of temptation
Open up the gate

I don't believe in your love
Tread on this bed of roses
I don't believe in your love
Don't give a fuck for roses

Loving you was bleeding
So I had to break away
Darkness stretching out its hand
To save me from your sway
Cause loving you was wasting
Loving you was pain
Now angel of temptation
Open up the gate
Cause loving you was wasting

I don't believe in your love
Tread on this bed of roses
I don't believe in your love
Don't give a fuck for roses
11. Lost In Space (3:52)
Another star
has fallen without a sound
Another spark
has burned out in the cold

Another door
to barrens standing open

And who is there
to tell me not to give and not to go

How could I know? how could I know?
That I'll get lost in space to roam forever

How could I know? how could I see?
feeling like lost in space to roam forever

I'm crawling down
The doorway to the badlands
And kicking down

Are you heard: it's to the black
and all the damage
fading in the oblivion mirror
When the demons
are calling me, their dragging me away

How could I know?, how could I know?
That I'll get lost in space to roam forever

How could I know?, how could I see?
feeling like lost in space to roam forever

Lost in space
lost in time
Lost in space
Lost in Time
Lost in Space

How could I know, how could i know
How could I know, How could I know
That I'll get lost in space to roam for ever

How could I now, how could I see
feeling like lost in space to roam forever

Forever
