Heartbeat failing, and I'm falling into the sky
I take my leave, leaving you to grieve...
Carry me out on the street On your shoulders sweep me off my feet Game my name as if I were The One, second coming of the almighty son Take my name, and spread it around tell everyone of who you've found I promise that I'll spread the love on the wings of the fabled white dove look up high and you will see <chorus> A man who takes his spin too literally A boy who craves anonymity And here we are left to find A legend in his own mind Come inside and you will meet All the shakers who own Wall Street Money talks and we listen close Greed is the language that is spoken most What is good for everyone The top 1% will share that now A crippling debt, a high demand And the money flows up just like sand Look up high and you will find <chorus> Holding the Flag there way up high Stained with blood and oil from far across the tides We're all left to enjoy the blame While our sons and daughters fight in his stained name Look up high and you will see <chorus>
Lady in a Cage so sure of her surroundings
Be very afraid, stay away from the shadows deep in my brain
Peace, my brother...
Never thought I'd smile so much just when my boys smiled at me just the way they look like me, a smile so much like mine my heart swells with love and pride as they put their hands in mine there a happiness so deep inside when we walk side by side and as you grow up I feel that I grow too its ok that I grow old just as long as we have you... You are the sun and moon, you are the rain and shine that makes my garden grow you are the rising warm wind that takes me so high up in the sky showing me a life I'd never have seen otherwise every day brings a new surprise a new tooth or a new dance style for every bump, bruise for every frown we'll do our best to turn them upside down and soon when you go to school you'll bring stories and score the winning goal tears of heartbreak, the joy of that first kiss, every detail we dont want to miss the day will come when you walk in the door with the girl who will help build a home you'll want to start yourselves a brand new life, mom & dad she's gonna be my wife your mom & I will sit and smile, wistful tears in our eyes thinking back on how you've grown, and the joyful years gone by a realization of how the sand has fallen through the hourglass with the sound of grandkids running and laughing, this melancholy will pass <chorus> there will come a day when my last breath will slowly fade away and I'll proudly leave my place here to you...
