Suburban Blues

by Pan Astral

Karsten 01:11
a lover comes a lover goes a sun it burns a moon it glows so bright the light inside my head horizon line behind my bed of roses red and violets blue I miss our love and so do I I laughed out loud in afterglow you know my feet always cold as ice it melts upon my teeth her crooked smile rivals mona lease is up the landlord's dead he bought my car and drove it up to heaven wake up, daydreamer, break up with me Jesus Christ piercing through a flaming flower girl who knew mirror image of the universe reflecting off my landlord's her suburban blues are third world dreams her angel wings are blowing me to heaven wake up, daydreamer, break up with me
been seven months or maybe more since she's been living on the third floor he says hello, she says hello his cigarette falls on the floor covers it up with his boot toe she doesn't know, she doesn't know she's the one she cut her hair, she cut it close she got the sugar and the rainbows from head to toe, from head to toe he sees her come, he sees her go her every move is so unbearable she doesn't know, she doesn't know she's the one saturday night, she's all alone can't get nobody on the telephone she throws it down and hears a sound he cannot move, he knows the score was just about to knock upon her door he turns around and goes back down he's the one
carry me, Gulf of Mexico so far away from all I know marry me to the current flow the blue and green and Holy Ghost my shallow love, she come and go she sail the surface of my soul marry me, Gulf of Mexico I'll never leave you in a storm all eyes on the horizon way home, I am on my way a light may shine but never show a man may learn but never know carry me, Gulf of Mexico I trust in you to take me home way home, I am on my way
no, I will not let it go to come so far and just go home there's a room inside of a man where no one goes I dream of the day you're knocking upon that door I, somehow, some way, will find you no mountain high or valley low gonna keep this river from its shore oh, my love, how I will run into your open door I, somehow, some way, will find you there is no dowry, no white dress we'll take our vows in the darkness lifting the veil will be the first time that I see your face I, somehow, some way, will find you and I won't be long
when Summer comes, the river runs again I hear the music from the ice cream man I'm making sparks, I'm making brand new friends when Summer comes she's up in the forest, my bird in the chorus she's down in the ocean, my wave of emotion when Summer comes, we watch reruns once more we're walking barefoot to the corner store we fire work, we body surf the shore when Summer comes maybe I'm up to nothing maybe I'm late for something maybe I let the sun in maybe the Summer's coming
walk on air above the street Indian bones whispering I let go of myself moving slow in the heat setting sun, kiss my cheek through the frame of the street light in a mile high city oh, my girl, kiss me true let the moon follow suit let my heart be the fool free to be you and me we deserve the air we breathe we let go of the rule looking out, we can see a thousand miles to the sea build a fire, we are free come alive around the flame to the sound of a train we let go of ourselves
Animal 03:52
I am an animal behind a screen in a cubicle well behaved and controlled I am an animal on four wheels and a telephone circle in a rectangle I am an animal I am an animal, among your ones and zeros I'm infinitesimal I am an animal, I was not made to be alone I wait by the window
You Need 04:30
you say love is free how can that be? for you, I'd lay my body down all the boys you see resemble me but I'm the one you push around you treat me like your brother you need to be my lover in your one track mind you'll never find the means to give your love away where your heart may hide, I'll surely find and I know all the games you play you say love is blind but I see fine the little girl behind your eyes
Snowflake 04:26
who is on the wrong end of the gun? I think I've changed my opinion Hallelujah, everyone is a snowflake in the sun freedom, freedom, what have you become? dull your heart just to sharpen your tongue pull the trigger, now who's the one under the gun?
Sing For Me 03:01
sing for me with the air we breathe sing for me move the air dance for me on the ground beneath dance for me without care all I want is you to be free shine for me with the light I seek shine for me in the dark cry for me a saltwater sea cry for me fill the sea
Dance 03:49
dance, you wonderful thing, dance when you wake up, this will not have been a dream when you wake up, this will not be what it seemed
