Lucifer's Friend Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Ride in the Sky (2:54)
Traveling this dark world, leaving light behind
Seeing things I shouldn't see
New eyes I got to find
Mars Venus and stars shaking
their heads at me
No more todays - tonight I'll be riding the sky

Hey world look out I'm coming
Friends pass me by and you saw me humming
Mars Venus and stars shaking
their heads at me
No more todays - tonight I'll be riding the sky
Tonight ride the sky, tonight ride the sky

The smile on his face turn me to stone
The words that he spoke
wouldn't leave me alone
Mars Venus and stars
shaking their heads at me
No more todays tonight I'll be riding the sky
Tonight ride the sky, tonight ride the sky,
Tonight ride the sky
Tonight ride the sky ...
2. Everybody's Clown (6:07)
I got to find a good time train
I know you say I'm looking pale as fever
All you want to do is groan
But now I say I'm glad you're on your own

The summer's been and gone again
I don't know where and I don't care where I'm going
You tried so hard to bring me down
But I'm not simply everybody's clown

Stop the world I need a little time right now
In my head I'm so confused
Busy little people in their big machine
Haven't got the time to feel abused

It's not that I'm the restless kind
But now I've go to satisfy my mind
I haven't got a thing to lose
And anyway I've got no time to choose

Summer's been and gone again
I don't know where
and I don't care where I'm going
When you see me at the break of dawn
Pull yourself together till I'm gone
Everybody's clown, everybody's clown
3. Keep Goin' (5:22)
I saw the horses go by in the snow
I heard the hounds in full cry long ago
I saw my face in a dream down below
I heard the prisoners scream: room for more

Keep going they're hot on your heels
The longer you rest now the harder it feels
Nobody will open the door
Even your friends won't know you no more

Slowly I open my eyes no one there
Breakfast in bed would be nice no one here
I can't be laid there today - throw me out
What would I do without pain, go with out

repeat
4. Toxic Shadows (6:57)
Blackness sliding everywhere
you took the train to come undaunted
Cause it can't be late
Toxic shadows in the air
you find your own with a compulsion
Now It's too late

Tell me how'd you'd like to be
Then I'd listen and thn I'd see
With nowhere left to go inside of you
Would you know what should be done lying, dying in the sun
Praying for the rising of the moon

I smell coal dust in your hair
You who bakes in A house of fire
with your feeling finger
Take my hard rock, put it there
Ooh babe just a little bit higher

repeat

Tell me you'd like to be
Then I'd listen and then I'd see
With no where left to go inside of you
Wouldn't you know what should be done
As you lay dying in the sun
The ragged crows close in the afternoon
5. Free Baby (5:26)
Hey baby -would you stop those stupid games
that you are playing
Hey baby is it lies or is it true
what they are saying
When you're on your own you play around
Set me free

Hey baby is it mine or someone else's bed
you're sleep tonight
Tell me baby, if it's someone else, make sure
that he will treat you right
When you're on your own you play around
Set me free

repeat
6. Baby You're a Liar (3:51)
Truly you're the sweetest thing
I have ever seen
You make me glean the crazy side of love
You're the one who can make me, shake me
Long before my time is due
Move it in the back and slide it from above
But I know a game or two you play
Baby, baby you're a liar and I fell for you
Baby
I couldn't get no higher
without seeing through you
Baby now you've gone away from me
it's all over, bar the crying

Now I've had the time to think about
where I went wrong
I know I'd run a mile to do it all once more
Spending lonely nights with someone
that I know I'll never love
Wishing things was like they were before
But I've gotten wiser to you babe
Baby I'm a liar and I fell I for you
Baby couldn't get no higher with you - no, no, no
Baby now you've gone away from me
it's all over, don't bother waiting
7. In the Time of a Job When Mammon was a Yippie (4:01)
In the time of Job when Joseph was a chippy
All the sons of Pharaoh's were kings
The word was passed around
that Mammon was a yippie
And papin had to learn a few things

First there was a light coming out
from Moses
And Abraham was playing the stooge
With pilot on the right and Mary and her roses
Had a reputation to lose

Oh my dozy rosie eyes
Screw me I'm a tuba
Free as a beanstalk
Coogan flipped for, get down on your knees and love,
and love the man

Mary said to Joe there ain't no play
that's easy
You want to see them fall for the tricks
All we got to do is let them take it easy
And make like he's working for kicks

When they know Job got up, the boss is in Ginea
Knew they had a fish on the hook
Went calling all the boys
And sold them the idea
To write the story down in a book

Oh my dozy rosie eyes
Screw me I'm a tuba
Free as a beanstalk
Coogan flipped for, get down on your knees and love,
and love the man

repeat
8. Lucifer's Friend (6:08)
Fear and fright since yesterday night
The little man knocked at my window
The hour he'd want but he had to run
But he'll be back again
Since yesterday night, I lived in fear of fright
I still hear his voice shouting
through the night

I asked Manny, I asked Sue don't know
what to do
Every hour I cry I don't want to die
Fear is in my brain
Since yesterday night, I lived in fear of fright
I still hear his voice shouting
through the night

Come take my hand I'm Lucifer's friend
Tonight is the end of your way

repeat

Come take my hand I'm Lucifer's friend
Tonight is the end of your way
Take me, take me away, you can have me,
you can take me, you can take me away?
