King's X Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. The World Around Me (2:57)
One morning walking down the street
Where nobody walks nobody can hear I
started listening to a sound so clear To the
world around me. I started to laugh But a
grin took its place And my heart beat louder
Like it never did before I saw things that I
never did before in this world around me I
can't resist I couldn't see how this could be
an accident I can't resist I wanna see more
See the world all around-ah Incredible
scene I had to believe I saw a difference to
the way I see The Mystery said come and
see The world around me See the world all
around-ah...
2. Prisoner (4:14)
The looks are - The smile is a lie The clock
drags on - The smoke is in your eyes You
know the blame is someone's But you don't
quite know who In your mind - If it could
only be different In your heart - If only you
could run away from it Prisoner, prisoner
Choosing death for life (if you coud only
say) Prisoner, prisoner Smiling executioner
(you are a prisoner) If money - If love was
in your life Ifs run out - Gotta realize it's
time Confusion Delusion Alive in destitu-
tion In your mind If it could only be
different in your heart If only you could
run away from it Prisoner, prisoner
Choosing death for life (if you could only
say) Prisoner, prisoner Smiling executioner
(you are a prisoner)
3. The Big Picture (5:02)
She's got everything I need and more to live
my life Never ever thought to think of
never survive The circle has been broken it's
always been this way The Big Picture I
wanna see I know you're listening so let it
be Golden Rules and Sunday Schools It was
my way A rock-n-roll, a spiritual Give me
any day, yeah The final chapter the
morning after blowing in the wind Taking
away the other day where time stands us
still
4. Lost in Germany (4:52)
Moving in a bus too close for comfort
Listening to all the gibberish around me
Wanda! How much longer can I stand it
Looking for a phone I cannot find Ohh
woest me Like a politician in disguise You
know I had to look you in the eyes and
smile While I crawled another mile in
Germany, lost in Germany Swimming in an
ocean of your feelings Counting every
moment go one by one Laughing to keep
from crying out in anger Praying that I can
make it through this night Oh woest me It
was like a never ending week But I learned
to turn the other cheek and smile While I
ran for one more mile in Germanym lost in
Germany Shooting at a target that eludes
me Hammering on a nail that ust won't go
in Biting on a tongue that wants to speak
out Searching for a light that I can shine
Oh woest me But now I have crossed that
borderline And I wonder if I'll ever find
your hand 'Cause I did not understand in
Germany, lost in Germany
5. Chariot Song (5:22)
If I could only have one thing, give me the
loving (loving is nothing to doubt) A shot
to the left and I fall down, cover (la, la, la,
la, la, la, la, la me) me I hear the music
again all around Are you going my wa-ay
Who can I talk to without a sound Out of
the planet comes Gretchen with faith, hope
and love Never the dull of a moment, ever
to ever be true (ever forever be true) Touch-
ing the sky just to hold it maybe (la, la, la,
la, la, la, la, la blue) it won't be so blue I
hear the music again all around Are you
going my wa-ay Who can I talk to without
a sound Out of the planet comes Gretchen
with Give me a not a little bot of love without
measure now and ever on to you Let me
hear the beat to make my heart beat strong
(make it beat stronger) Swing down sweet
chariot stop (come on) let me ride To take a
look at what I'm looking ooh (what I'm
looking after) Alittle spark something to
analyze analyze analyze Ah-ah Uh-ah (yeah)
ah (whoa-ut-oh) ah ) and the choir sings)
dowahdiddydiddy(as they walk down the
aisle) dumdiddydoo Let me hear the beat to
make my heart beat strong (make it beat
stronger) Swing down street chariot stop
(come on) let me ride To take a look at
what I'm looking ooh (what I'm looking
after) Alittle spark something to analyze
analyze analyze If I could only have one
thing, give me the loving (loving is nothing
to doubt) A shot to the left and I fall down,
cover (la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la me) me Ever
to ever be true touching the sky just to
hold it I hear the music again all around
Are you going my wa-ay Who can I talk to
without a sound Out of the planet comes
Gretchen with not a little bit, love
without measure Now and Ever on to you
Give me not a little bit, love without
measure Now and Ever on to you I hear
the music again all around Are you going
my wa-ay Who can I talk to without a
sound guess that's it
6. Ooh Song (4:00)
It's not so simple anymore Sometimes it
can't be done but then there is wisdom To
fix a broken door, and throw away the key
Reject what doesn't matter Ooh... It's not
so hard anymore Sometimes it can be done,
if there is wisdom The house will shake the
more Hang-on if you dream cause every-
thing matters Ooh...
7. Not Just for the Dead (4:46)
I find it hard some days to remember I find
it hard some days to forget and some days I
give everything within me And some days I
don't give a bit Will it be? It will absolutely
be Can you see? With the eyes that God
gave me Are you free? From the chains that
fall on me Well it's not just something deep
inside my head It's not just for the dead
Walking in a smog that's all around me
and thru it somehow life lives too Before I
let it all just overwhelm me I think of
something good in you Will it be? It will
absolutely be Can you see? With the eyes
that God gave me Are you free? From the
chains that fall on me Well it's not just
something deep inside my head It's not just
for the dead Will it be? It will absolutely be
Can you see? With the eyes that God gave
me Are you free? From the chains that fall
off me Well it's not just something deep
inside my head It's not just for the dead
Dead Dead Dead Dead ("wolfe! wolfe!")
8. What I Know About Love (5:39)
From a simple word, to a simple phrase
Communication, and forgiving all The poet
with a way to see And a time to say it all I
would have never known what I know
about love Love... If not for this... if not
for you... If not for me... If not for truth
But I work so hard, just to keep This
treasure chest of trash I would never have
known what I know about love Love...
9. Black Flag (4:01)
A year in the hole had taken its toll When I
took a good look at me And what a surprise
the scope of my eyes could only see black
And I remember someone who was taking
them two by two and lately I'd become the
one who'd have laughed at you too! There
was a Black Flag on my morning There was
a Black Flag on my day There was a Black
Flag on everything around and I was
walking backwards again I walked in the
day, my usual way, looking through a 2 X 4
It colored my view, I couldn't see you Or
maybe I just wouldn't And I remember the
time when the sunlight fell on my head And
lately I'd become a member of the walking
dead There was a Black Flag on my
morning There was a Black Flag on my day
There was a Black Flag on everything
arouond and I was walking backwards again
And I know that I was wrong. It was up to
me if I wanted to see And I remember the
day when I saw the mask on my face And I
knew that it was time to put the thing in its
place I'd put the Black Flag on my morning
I'd put the Black Flag on my day I'd put
the Black Flag on everything around And I
was walking backwards again And I know
that I was wrong
10. Dream in My Life (4:58)
I'm walking in a foreign winter breeze
Don't think of home too much, it may just
being me to my knees And I'm watching
people playing in a place they call their
home And I can't remember when I ever
felt so all alone So far from home If I have a
dream in my life I dream I'm with you If I
have a dream in my life for you When I was
young I knew just what I'd do And so much
more than that has come in sharing life
with you And I take another step in the
direction I must go And I feel the truth
inside me it's the one thing that I know I
know, I know If I have a dream in my life I
dream it with you If I have a dream in my
life I dream it will all fit together with you I
know this is the way it has to be But it
doesn't make it easier I can't just pay a fee
That will make pain go away So I accept it
for another day Our hope is deeper than the
pain we often feel So we take these steps
together as the hurt begins to heal And we
know it is for real So we accept it for
another day And suddenly I don't have to
run I see the place where dreams and life
become one And our paths run together
trailing off in the sun Yes I have a dream in
my life I dream it with you Yes I have a
dream in my life And you dream it too Yes
I have a dream in my life We both feel
it's true
11. Silent Wind (4:33)
What did you say there my sister my
brother you talking to me? What denomi-
nation? The whole thing seems crazy to me
Don't know. I sometimes wonder if we're
walking down the same line Must go. I'm
sorry to say that while you talk I keep my
eye on the time And when we pray Do we
listen to the Silent Wind? And if you pray
Do we listen for the Silent Wind? What did
you say? Well the truth is just what it
simply is. Maybe I'm lazy or maybe I never
was a conversation whiz Don't know But
can we pull down the walls for just a
momemnt or twoMust go. And maybe look
beyond ourselves to see whatever is true
And when we pray Do we listen to the
Silent Wind? And if we pray Will we listen
for the Sient Wind? And when we pray Is
our hand against the Silent Wind? And if
we pray Will we breathe in the Silent
Wind?
