Black Brick Road Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level
1. The Greymem (4:45)
Such a dark cold way and it enters through your breathing every day
What a dark old way to stay the same
As it enters through your breathing,
Close your eyes and feel them turn it grey

Oh, heart of gold
Spring time life and laughter born, now you wander there alone
Down that way where life is a bad place, life is a sad place, always.

Such a dark cold way and it enters through your breathing everyday
What a dark old way to stay the same
As it enters through your breathing,
Close your eyes and feel them turn it grey

Oh, heart of stone
Nights were there for you alone, now the greymen linger long
And the nights are cold and hard and days are slipping away paced, Moving on always.
2. Making Evenings (4:22)
Making Evenings


Where is the color of my evening deep red
Lost in the middle of the morning rays, he said
Heading for the heart of a different sun
Hopeful and high and set to get one, now she's gone

Dark park moon balloon, he said

Where is the light of my nighttime sky
Left in the morning without a goodbye
Heading for the heart of a different sun
Just in case she fails to get one, now he's gone

Dark park moon balloon, he said
Dark park moon balloon, it's bad
3. Black Brick Road (4:01)
Black Brick Road


I met a blackbird flying south tonight, I looked into her eyes tonight
I saw her wings were getting tired, still looking for the light
There is evil on the way, it will come with break of day
I heard her say before she turned and flew away
But for a moment there alone I could find my way back home

How it hurts still there when she comes to show
She's always near down the black brick road

I watched her heading for the southern skies when she lost her wings and died
But then I saw her flying higher when I looked into her eyes
There is evil on the way, I heard the blackbird say
It will reach us by the coming of the day
But for a moment there alone I was heading back for home

How it hurts still there when she comes to show
She's always near down the black brick road
4. Dystopia (3:48)
Dystopia


Do you know just how long it takes to get burned
Just how long it takes you know you will learn, to get burned
Do you know what it takes just to burn for a while
And then to put on a smile, cause it burns to play with fire

Sick of it all I am burning always

Do you know which wave to take when it aches
And just how long it takes to get down from that wave when it breaks
Do you know just how long it takes to get burned
For sure you will learn how it burns

Sick of it all I am burning always
5. The Organ (4:41)
The Organ


I can see you walk with sorrow, I can see it in your eyes
And I know you fear this moment like me, I can see it in your smile

And no longer bids the morning to go with the thunder
I can see you're lost and falling, I can see you're all alone

I can see you walk with sorrow my dove and sorrow walks alone
6. A Trip with the Moon (3:56)
A Trip With The Moon


If I was a moon then would I be missed
If I slept through the night just for a change
Or kept in a cauldron where I could never ask why
Wouldn't it be strange, it's hard to say

If you were a moon I know you would be shining bright
To light up the night, I know you would
When I would just stay behind with my thoughts for a while
Like all dreamers do, I know I'll figure it out soon

I could go further, I could be only with a sudden tune
I could go further but I could be never if it wasn't for you

If I was a moon then I would be mystified
And light up the sky, you know I could
But I would just stay away with my thoughts for a while
Like all dreamers do, you know I'll figure it out soon

I could go further, I could be only with a sudden tune
I could go further but I could be never if it wasn't for you
7. Sister Sinister (4:11)
Sister Sinister


A place so scarlet in a well, tide is creeping up so tell
Stories of her golden time, night coming and the stars
Listen to her voice again, sister sinister will say

Sister sinister will say how you're doing there today
And by the way, how are you doing there

Lady lust in all her prom flying closer to the sun
Closing up into my mind wonder what she's gonna find
Looking at her face again, sister sinister will play

Sister sinister will say how you're doing there today
And by the way, how are you doing there
8. Rainy Day Away (4:44)
Rainy Day Away


Should we come to sail for the mellow and grey
Would it bring us comfort say, just a rainy day away
I've got a little something on my mind
A little line of evening rhyme, a boogie bubble refrain again

Come let's dream some, come take a ride in my dream machine
Let's make a funny one, let's take a ride in my dream machine

Should we come to stray in this nightmare play
I would like to ask you if I may dream today away
And for about a year we'd loose this fear
Of old men going nowhere near the grey to play the game

Come let's dream some, come take a ride in my dream machine
Let's make a funny one, let's take a ride in my dream machine
And when the dream is done, it's time to have another one
9. Crazyman (4:41)
Crazyman


Darkness and chaos unleashed, stiring the sleep of the beast
I've got this wonderful plan to conquer the demon
Then I'll be the one in command

To keep you away they kept you insane
Oh, they kept you insane

A wakening mind set on fire, flames getting higher and higher
I've got a wonderful goal, to conquer the demon
Then I'll be the one in control

To keep you in play they kept you insane
Oh, they kept you insane
