NEVERMORE LYRICS

1. Optimist Or Pessimist


chaos, the rule of the game
spinning as optimist fades
confusion becomed law
eclipsing hope, the pessimist said

if you want to change the world, forget it
the future's not in our hands
if you want to change the world, forget it
the pigs already set in

freedom has bee stripped away
change it the corrosion fades
slowly we turn
as the pessimist sets these pointed words

if you want to change the world, forget it
the future's n ot in our hands
if you want to change the world, forget it
the pigs already set in

the optimist understands why the world's gone down the drain
the pessimist never bends, constricting thoughts in vain
from the pessimist's point of view there's nothing we can do
as I paint this picture gray and taste the pain
I'll play the optimist

The only world I know is the world I cling to
It's a world that I'd want to save
optimist or pessimist, what am I suppose to be

if you want to change the world, forget it
the future's n ot in our hands
if you want to change the world, forget it
the pigs already set in

the optimist understands why the world's gone down the drain
the pessimist never bends, constricting thoughts in vain
from the pessimist's point of view there's nothing we can do
as I paint this picture gray and taste the pain
I'll play the optimist


2. Matricide


Hear our Mother crying in silent tears
For she can't speak, she only cries She cries to me
Draw the final curtain, for senseless thoughts
And senseless hands have shaped the future
Is it not what you thought would come?
Or maybe people no longer care for Mother Earth
Earth Mother is screaming, we can't live without her
No time left for dreaming here, she knows Have we forgot our future?
Earth Mother, life giver, we can't live without her
So foolish, men who say they don't care
They'll be gone anyway
Feel our
Mother nurture, for we are the children
Suckling at her breasts she gives us life, she give us all we need
What do we give in return for life we take from her?
Oh, forgive us Mother, forgive us
For we know what we do We've blistered and burned you
Our kind may soon be through, we've raped you Earth Mother is screaming,
we can't live without her
No time left for dreaming here, she knows
Have we forgot our future?
Earth Mother, life giver, we can't live without her
So foolish, men who say they don't care
They'll be gone anyway Earth Mother is screaming,
we can't live without her No time left for dreaming here, she knows
Have we forgot our future?
Earth Mother, life giver, we can't live without her
So foolish, men who say they don't care
They'll be gone anyway
Think of our little ones,
for whom the world has just begun....


3. In Memory


Do you remember the time gone
Do you remember tears like golden streaks across the sky
Do you remember, do you believe it's all been said and done
Or is it just beginning, ripping, freezing me
Do you remember the time gone
Or is too painful for you
Do you remember days spent in the sun, the times we shared
It's crystal clear to me, in memory
Maybe I've gone too far, on one of my turns
But no one can take away what I've already learned
Memory lives in shadow, nevermore will I blame
And I swear 'til the end of my days I'll not forget one moment
Burn out the time, burn out the tears, forget who's to blame
Hold out your hand and see through the years
You're just a foolish mortal man
Maybe I've known too long just how abstract we all live
And I've seen how futile anger scars all that we believe
Burn out the time, burn out the tears, forget who's to blame
Hold out your hand and see through the years
You're just a foolish mortal man
And when there's nothing more left to dream
And nowhere left to wander
The memories will be there for you
To give you peace of mind
Maybe I've gone too far, on one of my turns
But no one can take away what I've already learned
Memory lives in shadow, nevermore will I blame
And I swear 'til the end of my life I can't forgive your pain
Burn out the time, burn out the tears, forget who's to blame
Hold out your hand and see through the years
You're just a foolish mortal man
And when there's nothing more left to dream
And nowhere left to wander
The memories will be there for you
To give you peace of mind
And when there's nothing more left to gain
And no risks left worth taking
The memories will be true to you...
In memory, in memory...
Memory is alive


4. Silent Hedges / Double Dare


[Words: P. Murphy, music: David Bowie]

Following the silent hedges
Needing some other kind of madness
Looking into purple eyes
Sadness at the corners
Works of art with a minimum of steel

Pure sensation
The beautiful down grade
Going to hell again
Going to hell again

Self confidence leaks
From a thousand wounds
Faults of civilization
Burning the private paradise of dreams
Minus hands of the electric clock
Clock [3x]

What happens when the intoxication of success has evaporated?

Pure sensation
The beautiful down grade
Going to hell again
Going to hell again
Again [3x]


5. The Sorrowed Man


Take me away to the quiet place
Where the doors of perception open wide
Smiling faces greet me there
Loved and lost, lost inside
Take me away to the netherworld
Where we dance in the waves, the universe shines
The place that holds my beautiful dream
When I awake, I look to the sky and
Pray that I will live forever
The sorrow man will not be me
Today I'll change my life forever
For what I've seen must surely be
Fly me away on the wings of a dove
To the temple of knowledge we can fly
Smiling inside, peace so clear
One with the all, one within mind
Fly me away to a better world
Where there's no more war and can be no shame
The place that holds the great mystery
When I awake, I look to the sky and
Pray that I will live forever
The sorrow man will not be me
Today I'll change my life forever
For what I've seen must surely be
Here I am, body and soul
Flesh and blood, on this stage I play my role
No, there's no time left for gazing at the sky
No, there's no time left, kiss the wind goodbye and
Pray that I will live forever
The sorrow man will not be me
Today I'll change my life forever
For what I've seen must surely be
In the eyes of the sorrowed man...
