Black Like Sunday Lyrics

(14)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. Black Like Sunday (3:31)
he bites many people, he gives no one rest
i'm growing weary of cleaning up his mess
big brother's watching, and everybody sees
it's way too heavy, it brings me to my knees

the dog is on the loose,
he always brings me down
black like sunday,
always hanging round

he looks like your brother, he looks just like you
i feel the pressure, he's got me feeling blue
he roars like a lion, he's foaming at the mouth
and if he gets you cornered, he'll never let you out

the dog is on the loose,
he always brings me down
black like sunday,
always hanging round
2. Rock Pile (3:31)
all us rockers keep pushing on
we rise then we fall
no one stays on top forever
what goes up must go down

some folk say it's all in vain
this madness, rock n roll
sometimes i wonder why i'm here
a song only lasts for so long

i don't want to be another statistic in a pile of rock
i just want to be a star, i just want to be on top
there's only one place that i'd rather be
is where there's love, joy, and peace

there's a beat inside our brains, the rhythm is alive
if you're smart and stay insane
you'll stand the test of time

rock pile, it's just a rock pile
3. Danger Zone (3:23)
mom says she don't understand, says i'm such a problem child
i'm always getting into trouble, i hurt her all the time
but i don't know who i am, sometimes i don't understand
we get in a lot of fights, then i'm on the road again

i'm a man and i'm a boy
and i want to be happy
but my life is not a toy
somebody help me
i'm livng in the danger zone

dad's always on my case, says he wants me to be a man
but he treats me just like a child, and still wants to hold my hand
he has plans for my future, but i have other dreams
and we can't get together, with arguing

i'm a man and i'm a boy
and i want to be happy
but my life is not a toy
somebody help me
i'm livng in the danger zone
4. Working Man (3:49)
Stuck in a rut working nine to five
punch the clock proving he's a alive
he's a working man getting nowhere

he's got a wife, he's got a cat
god only knows where they're at
he's a lonely man, frustrated

tired of life, working five days a week
the weekend is his only treat
then his money's gone, it's monday

living his life gets him down
once a year vacation comes around
two weeks gone, time flies

man was cursed from his birth
it's a common truth yeah
guess it was always meant to be
the curse he wants reversed
5. Dreams (2:53)
my dream is to be a lover
i don't mean sex in a can
my dream is to be a brother
not the kind that separates man

dreams do come true, yeah
dreams do come true, yeah

my dream is to see changes
in the heart of man
i want to see salvation
to anyone who can

dreams do come true, yeah
dreams do come true, yeah
dream on
6. Finished (4:08)
you caught my eye, couldn't take them off of you
and i knew that you felt the same way too

finished before it started
one look then we parted

i couldn't speak, i felt one with you
i was afraid, what else could i do

love is patient and kind
bears and believes all things
some say its blind
but i can't see a thing

finished before it started
one look then we parted
7. Screamer (4:21)
at night they come while you dream
in between the wake and sleep
then you feel paralyzed
and soon you end up screaming

no no no

sometimes the voices are so clear
the fear just grips your soul
you see but there's nothing there
you know you're not alone, not alone

oh no no

had a dream the other night, didn't go away
over and over again
make the dreams go away, will they ever end
over and over again

you wake, the feeling is relief
then it comes, vibrations so strange
and then oh no, you realize
you've woken up inside your dream

no no no

had a dream the other night, didn't go away
over and over again
make the dreams go away, will they ever end
over and over again
8. Bad Luck (3:26)
here's a little story, it is frightening
or just a fantasy
just a little boy, he is different
different than you on me

the serpent is rising
growing stronger every day
you will see him in the future
you may have seen him today

666 seven years bad luck
you won't buy or sell without his mark

there is more to the story
it can be read
in a book called revelation
guess one day we'll see
9. Down (4:26)
woke up
hot texas morning
shades up and take a pee
the weather...
that empty feeling
that comes from way down inside

feeling down again

it's raining
depression hits me
mixed up, the sky's all gray
the phone rings
i don't feel like talking
some things
i can't explain

feeling down again

feeling low, no one home, living life
feeling cold, growing old in the night

feeling down again

woke up
hot texas morning
shades up
turn on the tv
the weather and that empty feeling
that comes from way down inside
10. Won't Turn Back (2:36)
somewhere in my mind i won't forget
it's hard to erase the bad times from my mind
so much that i've done now i regret
and there is no replacement for time

it's foolishness when i repeat an act
when before it only got me burned
with help it's not hard to turn away
but lessons can be hard to learn

i won't turn back
i won't turn back oh no oh no

if i want to change then i must stop what i'm doing
it's hard to desire the things that i despise
i'm learning to take those ninety degree turns
it's all about how i can change my life

i won't turn back
i won't turn back oh no oh no
11. Two (2:48)
two words
love, hate
where are you
you know who you are
two words
love, hate

touch me
truly
where are you
you know who you are
so i'm asking you
so far

don't know where to look anymore, i can't find you
don't know where to look anymore, where are you

where are you
you know who you are
so i'm asking you
so far

two words
love, hate
12. You're the Only One (3:42)
you took me to the top
you took me from the cold
you took me from myself
you broke my heart of stone

do whatever you want
do whatever you need
do whatever you like
do whatever you please

cause you're the only one that can do this to me
you're the only one who can make me crazy
my head is spinning i'm going wild
oh yeah

you are my fantasy, and my reality
you always come around, after you bring me down

do whatever you want
do whatever you need
do whatever you like
do whatever you please

cause you're the only one that can do this to me
you're the only one who can make me crazy
my head is spinning i'm going wild
oh yeah
13. Johnny (11:36)
Johnny cut his hair, now he looks like a punk
with buttons pinned all over his clothes
he got all the albums by the B-52
sometimes he's a one man show

went to NYC to join the crowd
identity was what he need
trouble was, that everybody looked the same
purpose was a total defeat

when there's nothing new, we look for the old
and everybody catches on yeah
all we want to be, is part of the crowd
whether it's right or wrong

what's the use of being yourself
when it seems that no one cares
and if you're a clone of someone else
there is nothing left to compare

when there's nothing new, we look for the old
and everybody catches on yeah
all we want to be, is part of the crowd
whether it's right or wrong
14. Save Us (2:15)
save us from war pigs, atomic bomb
mass destruction, fallen one
from deception, from the lies
mind pollution, from mankind

na na, hey hey

save us from history repeating itself
from religion, from this hell
from the powers that oppress
north and south, east and west

na na, hey hey

need a little loving, open arms
and forgiving, free from harm

na na, hey hey
