The Dream Goes On forever

A million old soldiers will fade away
But a dream goes on forever
I’m left standing here, I’ve got nothing to say
All is silent within my dream

A thousand true loves will live and die
But a dream lives on forever
The days and the years will go streaking by
But the time has stopped in my dream

We all have our everyday hopes and fears
And you’ll find no exception in me
But that doesn’t get me through a sea of tears
Over life’s biggest tragedy

You’re so long ago and so far away
But my dream lives on forever
I guess I believe that I’ll see you one day
For without it there is no dream

You’re so far away and so long ago
But my dream goes on forever
And how much I loved you you’ll never know
'Til you join me within my dream


#1623

*Never thought about tomorrow
Seemed like a long time to come
How could I be so blind, baby
Not to see you were the one

I let ya slip on from me baby
I let ya walk on by,
Shoulda loved, you told me
I refused to love, I let it die

Musta got lost, musta got lost, musta got lost
Somewhere down the line
Musta got lost, musta got lost
Give away the day you were mine*


#1624

*When I was younger I saw my daddy cry
And curse at the wind.
He broke his own heart and I watched
As he tried to reassemble it.

And my momma swore
That she would never let herself forget.
And that was the day that I promised
I’d never sing of love if it does not exist.

Maybe I know somewhere deep in my soul
That love never lasts.
And we’ve got to find other ways to make it alone.
Or keep a straight face.

And I’ve always lived like this
Keeping a comfortable distance.
And up until now I have sworn to myself
That I’m content with loneliness.

Because none of it was ever worth the risk.

*I was a rebel from the day i left school
Grew my hair long and broke all the rules
I’d sit and listen to my records all day
With big ambitions of where i could play

My parents taught me what life was about
So i grew up the type they warned me about
They said my friends were just an unruly mob
And i should get a haircut and get a real job

Get a haircut and get a real job
Clean your act up and don’t be a slob
Get it together like your big brother bob
Why don’t you get a haircut and get a real job*

I just posted this elsewhere so it is current now…

Moxy Fruvous
I Love My Boss

He can’t stand a loss
He’s always cross
His name is Ross… my [boss]
I love my boss
I love my boss
He isn’t full of fluff and gloss
He gives me work and many chores to do
My model, like Ben Cartwright to Hoss
And though he pays me minimum wage
It’s all I deserve at this stage
Some union hack said I should ask for more
I answered with suitable rage
I love my boss
I love my boss
I love my boss
I love my boss
One day I came to work too late
I’d had a Früvous luncheon date
My boss he summoned me to speak with him
I sweated, awaiting my fate
He said “you’re done!”
He chased me two blocks with a gun
But my dear boss let me apologize
In hindsite, there wasn’t a gun.
(Mike)
He’s going out now with my sister
They go real heavy on the sauce
I’d like to tell him watch out mister
But he’s the boss
My friends they say that I am clinging
Ask why I’m carrying this cross
Who knows what club-med will be bringing
From dear old boss
(spoken by Jian)
Examples
(All)
Bosses through the ages prove
They’re the ones who make it move
Bewitched would have an empty plate
If it weren’t for Larry Tate
Clark Kent reached the highest height
With the help of Perry White
And if we may be retrograde
Speak the name Reuben Kincaid
(Jian)
Now the other workers all say “Wow!”
When I roll over and I shake a paw
My boss is my brother-in-law
(All)
I love my boss
I love my boss
I love my boss
I love my boss

Jonathan Edwards:

*Sunshine go away today
I don’t feel much like dancin
Some mans gone he’s tried to run my life
I don’t know what he’s askin
Well he tells me I’d better get in line
I can’t hear what he’s sayin
When I grow up I’m gonna make it mine
These ain’t dues I’ve been payin

Well how much does it cost
I’ll buy it
The time is all we’ve lost
I’ll try it
He can’t even run his own life
I’ll damned if he’ll run mine…(sunshine)

Sunshine go away today
I don’t feel much like dancin
Some man’s gone he’s tried to run my life
I don’t know what he’s askin

Working starts to make me wonder
Where fruits of what I do are goin
He says in love and war all is fair
But he’s got cards he ain’t showin

Well how much does it cost
I’ll buy it
The time is all we’ve lost
I’ll try it
He can’t even run his own life
I’ll damned if he’ll run mine…(sunshine)

Sunshine come on back another day
I promise you i’ll be singin
This whole world she’s gonna turn around
Brand new bells will be ringin*


#1628

*Well I’m takin’ my time, I’m just movin’ on
You’ll forget about me after I’ve been gone
And I take what I find, I don’t want no more
It’s just outside of your front door.

It’s been such a long time. It’s been such a long time.*


#1629

*In a place you only dream of, where your soul is always free
silver stages, golden curtains, filled my head plain as could be
As a rainbow grew around the sun, all my stars above, who died
Came from somewhere beyond the scene you see
These lovely people played just for me

Now if I let you see this place where stories all ring true
Will you let me past your face to see what’s really you
It’s not for me I ask this question as though I were a king
For you have to love, believe and feel
Before the burst of tambourines take you there

Green grass and high tides forever
Castles of stone, soul and glory
Lost faces say we adore you
As kings and queens bow and play for you

Those who don’t believe me, find your souls and set them free
Those who do, believe and know that time will be your key
Time and time again I’ve thanked them for a peace of mind
That helped me find myself amongst the music and the rhyme
That enchants you there*


#1630

*look at you all
See the love there that’s sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
I look at the floor
And I see it needs sweeping
Still my guitar gently weeps

I don’t know why nobody told you
How to unfold your love
I don’t know how someone controlled you
They bought and so-old you

I look at the world
And I notice it’s turning
While my guitar gently weeps
(With) every mistake
We must surely be learning
Still my guitar gently weeps
Yeah

I don’t know how you were diverted
You were perverted too
I don’t know how you were inverted
No-one alerted you

I look at you all
See the love there that’s sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
Look at you all
Still my guitar gently wee-ee-eeps*


#1631

Dear Mr. Fantasy play us a tune
Something to make us all happy
Do anything, take us out of this gloom
Sing a song, play guitar, make it snappy

You are the one who can make us all laugh
But doing that you break out in tears
Please don’t be sad if it was a straight mind you had
We wouldn’t have known you all these years

Dear Mr. Fantasy play us a tune
Something to make us all happy
Do anything, take us out of this gloom
Sing a song, play guitar, make it snappy
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah…

oil remove shred and tear radiation vapor
it’s the fear so unclear man in motion going nowhere
in our homes stuck in the face spread the dirt to populace
yellow journal yellow journal set the pace feel the rage
manifestations of a sort so insidious off the point
simple solution never confusion sport a gun kill a cop
crazy world of weary thought so receive me had enough
lock me up lock me up
rot and assimilate so hot to annihilate
deviation tonic mess prolonged existence innocence
is he who speaks isn’t weak wheelchair virtue so to speak
bubonic plague the truth of aids immunity avoid decay
in the trench of pestilence the bible screams announce your faith
mutterings of death to bring suffocate a newborn thing
degradation of an age venereal it’s all sensation
protect design the moral plan infallible as propaganda
completely black with no steps back
hot to assimilate we’ll rot or annihilate
agony profusely stains the inner thinking of the brain
accusations clanking chains experiments with the groans of pain
all prefer no one blames the terror in an animal’s screams
in cages our future - the answers insane

You walk into the room
With your pencil in your hand
You see somebody naked
And you say, “Who is that man ?”
You try so hard
But you don’t understand
Just what you’ll say
When you get home.

Because something is happening here
But you don’t know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones ?

You raise up your head
And you ask, “Is this where it is ?”
And somebody points to you and says
“It’s his”
And you says, “What’s mine ?”
And somebody else says, “Where what is ?”
And you say, “Oh my God
Am I here all alone ?”

But something is happening here
But you don’t know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones ?

You hand in your ticket
And you go watch the geek
Who immediately walks up to you
When he hears you speak
And says, “How does it feel
To be such a freak ?”
And you say, “Impossible”
As he hands you a bone.

And something is happening here
But you don’t know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones ?

You have many contacts
Among the lumberjacks
To get you facts
When someone attacks your imagination
But nobody has any respect
Anyway they already expect you
To all give a check
To tax-deductible charity organizations.
You’ve been with the professors
And they’ve all liked your looks
With great lawyers you have
Discussed lepers and crooks
You’ve been through all of
F. Scott Fitzgerald’s books
You’re very well read
It’s well known.

But something is happening here
And you don’t know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones ?

Well, the sword swallower, he comes up to you
And then he kneels
He crosses himself
And then he clicks his high heels
And without further notice
He asks you how it feels
And he says, “Here is your throat back
Thanks for the loan”.

And you know something is happening
But you don’t know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones ?

Now you see this one-eyed midget
Shouting the word “NOW”
And you say, “For what reason ?”
And he says, “How ?”
And you say, “What does this mean ?”
And he screams back, “You’re a cow
Give me some milk
Or else go home”.

Because something is happening
But you don’t know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones ?

Well, you walk into the room
Like a camel and then you frown
You put your eyes in your pocket
And your nose on the ground
There ought to be a law
Against you comin’ around
You should be made
To wear earphones.

Does something is happening
And you don’t know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones ?

Well, I don’t know why I came here tonight
I got the feeling that something ain’t right
I’m so scared in case I fall off my chair,
And I’m wondering how I’ll get down those stairs

Clowns to left of me, jokers to the right,
Here I am, stuck in the middle with you

Yes, I’m stuck in the middle with you,
And I’m wondering what it is I should do
It’s so hard to keep this smile from my face,
Losing control, and I’m all over the place

Clowns to left of me, jokers to the right,
Here I am, stuck in the middle with you

Well, you started off with nothing,
And you’re proud that you’re a self-made man
And your friends they all come crawling,
Slap you on the back and say,
Please, please

Trying to make some sense of it all,
But I can see it makes no sense at all
Is it cool to go to sleep on the floor?
'Cause I don’t think that I can take anymore

Clowns to left of me, jokers to the right,
Here I am, stuck in the middle with you

And you started off with nothing,
And you’re proud that you’re a self-made man
And your friends they all come crawling,
Slap you on the back and say,
Please, please.

Yeah, I don’t know why I came here tonight
I got the feeling that something ain’t right
I’m so scared in case I fall off my chair,
And I’m wondering how I’ll get down those stairs

Clowns to left of me, jokers to the right,
Here I am, stuck in the middle with you
Yes, I’m stuck in the middle with you
Stuck in the middle with you
Here I am, stuck in the middle with you

Well, I’ve got to run to keep from hiding
And I’m bound to keep on riding
And I’ve got one more silver dollar
But I’m not gonna let them catch me, no
Not gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider

And I don’t own the clothes I’m wearing
And the road goes on forever
And I’ve got one more silver dollar
But I’m not gonna let them catch me, no
Not gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider

And I’ve gone by the point of caring
Some old bed I’ll soon be sharing
And I’ve got one more silver dollar

But I’m not gonna let 'em catch me, no
Not gonna let them catch the midnight rider
No I’m not gonna let 'em catch me, no
Not gonna let them catch the midnight rider
No, I’m not gonna let 'em catch me, no
I’m not gonna let them catch the midnight rider
But I’m not gonna let 'em catch me, no
Not gonna let them catch the midnight rider…

I would give a thousand pelts
to sleep with Pocohantas

Hot Town Summer In The City
Back Of My Neck Getting Dirt And Gritty
Been Down, Isn’t It A Pity
Doesn’t Seem To Be A Shadow In The City
All Around People Looking Half Dead
Walking On The Sidewalk Hotter Than A Match Head

But At Night It’s A Different World
Go Out And Find A Girl
Come On, Come On And Dance All Night
Despite The Heat It Will Be Alright
And Babe, Don’t You Know It’s A Pity
The Days Can’t Be Like The Night
In The Summer In The City
In The Summer In The City

Cool Town, Evening In The City
Dressed So Fine And Looking So Pretty
Cool Cat Lookin For A Kitty
Gonna Look In Every Corner Of The City
Till I’M Weezin Like A Bus Stop
Running Up The Stairs Gonna Meet Ya On The Roof Top

But At Night It’s A Different World
Go Out And Find A Girl
Come On, Come On Lets Dance All Night
Despite The Heat It Will Be Alright
And Babe, Don’t You Know It’s A Pity
The Days Can’t Be Like The Night
In The Summer In The City
In The Summer In The City

I hear the train a comin’
It’s rolling round the bend
And I ain’t seen the sunshine since I don’t know when,
I’m stuck in Folsom prison, and time keeps draggin’ on
But that train keeps a rollin’ on down to San Antone…
When I was just a baby my mama told me. Son,
Always be a good boy, don’t ever play with guns.
But I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die
When I hear that whistle blowing, I hang my head and cry…

I bet there’s rich folks eating in a fancy dining car
They’re probably drinkin’ coffee and smoking big cigars.
Well I know I had it coming, I know I can’t be free
But those people keep a movin’
And that’s what tortures me…

Well if they freed me from this prison,
If that railroad train was mine
I bet I’d move it on a little farther down the line
Far from Folsom prison, that’s where I want to stay
And I’d let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away…
