SO BE IT The Lyrics


SOMETHING WORTH FIGHTING FOR (J.O`Neill)

Is your number high on a concrete wall With an intercom that cries Is your family lost in scattering Thirty storeys high I will be free I`m meant to be I will be free Do you wait for luck in your letterbox And the joy that it will bring Do you wait for moments of charity A letter from a King I will be free I`m meant to be I will be free In the end that`s something worth fighting for In the end that`s something worth fighting for And you pray for sun in a frozen wind And you make your bed on the street And you keep your spirit awake And you mix your blood with the beat I will be free I`m meant to be I will be free In the end that`s something worth fighting for In the end that`s something worth fighting for In the end that`s something worth fighting for In the end that`s something worth fighting for And you pray for sun in a frozen wind And you make your bed on the street And you keep your spirit awake And you mix your blood with the beat I will be free I`m meant to be I will be free In the end that`s something worth fighting for In the end that`s something worth fighting for In the end that`s something worth fighting for In the end that`s something worth fighting for

KILLING FOR GOD (J.O`Neill)

Recite your verse till you`re a good boy These precious words will bring you nothing but joy Don`t talk to strangers they`ll trick you with noise And please don`t kill for me Stick out your tongue to prove you`re not a liar Dance till you numb and can`t stand in the fire Puncture your skin with thorns of barbed wire But please don`t kill for me Killing for God We`ve been falling on swords We`ve been eating the fruit from your tree Killing for God We`ve been drinking your blood We`ve been torching the ones that disagree Well that`s what you see That`s what you see File down your bullets and sharpen your knives Torture your prisoners into Paradise Take all your soldiers to prayers at midnight But please don`t kill for me Killing for God We`ve been falling on swords We`ve been eating the fruit from your tree Killing for God We`ve been drinking your blood We`ve been torching the ones that disagree Well that`s what you see That`s what you see That`s what you see Recite your verses till you`re a good liar These precious words will take you higher and higher Listen to strangers and those you admire And please don`t kill for me Don`t kill for me Kill for me Kill for me Don`t kill for me

27 (J.O`Neill)

He`s just a boy A death conscious boy And he knows that he`s a star But hates attention Now he finds it very strange Now he finds it`s all a game Now he finds this life`s Not worth a mention He`s hard enough to fight Fighting the need Fighting the system He`s soft enough to cry Breaking his heart For those who listen She`s just a girl A death conscious girl And she knows that she`s a star But hates attention Now she finds it very strange Now she finds it`s all a game Now she finds this life`s Not worth a mention She`s hard enough to fight Fighting the need Fighting the system She`s soft enough to cry Crying for help For those who listen Say it for me Do it for me Do it today Do what you do Do it for real Say what you feel Tell it to me Sell it to me Do it for me What do you do? What do you need? What do you say? What do you care? What do you feel? What do you feel? Feel They`re hard enough to fight Fighting the need Fighting the system They`re soft enough to break Breaking their hearts For those who listen He`s just a boy A death conscious boy

I WOKE UP (J.O`Neill)

You can get fooled into Being a fool I was a natural I was the King of solitude From my fortress I would rule Never believing Never surrendering Then I Woke up From this Despair It`s never easy child There`s not a switch inside Then I Woke up And you Were there Thaught me the things you knew Thaught me to feel it too Oohhh Oohhh Oohhh I`ve never told you What I feel We learn to be hard inside To keep it all closed up And you Never told me Are you real?

NUMBER ONE FRIEND (J.O`Neill)

The cats in the Moulin crew Trawl the Couscous Cafes Looking for a neck to chew And hideaway Well that`s where I found you Lippy and trashy C`mon little Betty Blue What do you say `Cause I would love to be Your Guardian Angel Yes I would love to be Your number one friend Uh huh huh In the windmills of Pigalle We raised our voices Moi et toi special This love disease We looked for bohemia And found high prices C`mon mon petit godesse Come dance with me `Cause I would love to be Your Guardian Angel Yes I would love to be Your very close friend `Cause I would love to be Your Guardian Angel Yes I would love to be Your number one friend `Cause I I lost you in the night Lost that fatal magic We didn`t even have a fight You melted away The cats in the Moulin crew Trawl the Couscous Cafes Looking for a neck to chew On another day `Cause I would love to be Your Guardian Angel Yes I would love to be Your very close friend `CauseI would love to be Your Guardian Angel Yes I would love to be Your number one friend Uh huh huh Uh huh huh

FLYING (J.O`Neill)

Here we are again Floating on the rain Into the dark Into the dark Where you are Turning in the wind A miracle of tin Into the sun Into the sun Where you are We`re flying Flying Kings of all we see As high as we can be Over the land Over the land To where you are Heavier than air With tickets to get there Over the sea Over the sea To where you are We`re flying Flying Flying Flying Flying Flying ...

HELLO STRANGER (J.O`Neill)

Hello stranger How`s it going? Do you feel ok? Any regrets? In the morning? It`s too late anyway So cut it out Cut it out I feel empty I feel fulfilled I feel good and bad Something happened But did it matter And will it make us sad So cut it out Cut it out Is it normal To be so restless Is it such a crime To be always looking forward Instead of behind William Shakespeare Had his nose pierced For his one true love And William Burroughs Had a nice lunch And took a lot of stuff So cut it out Cut it out Is it foolish To be so restless Is it such a crime To be always looking forward Instead of behind Hello stranger In the morning Here`s your Golden Star I leave your doorway I leave you dreaming I leave you where you are So cut it out Cut it out Shut it out Cut it out Cut it out Shut it out

HENRY`S BLACK SHADOW (J.O`Neill)

Henry`s black shadow dances for you Yellow stars against a rush of blue Oh man He takes you further than he think you can Cause Henry can Cause Henry can Flying in space above the crowd Shooting off his six guns at the clouds Oh man He takes you further than he think you can Cause Henry can Can be a psycho saint and wide-o Burn your magic biro canvassman Flying in space above the crowd Flying to a place he`s not allowed Oh man He takes you further than he think you can Cause Henry can Cause Henry can Cause Henry can He`s coming round the bend He`s coming to an end You wont believe your eyes Henry`s black shadow dances for you Yellow stars against a rush of blue Oh man He takes you further than he think you can Cause Henry can Cause Henry can Cause Henry can Cause Henry can Cause Henry can Cause Henry can

WILD MOUNTAIN THYME (The McPeake Family)

Oh the summertime is coming And the trees are sweetly bloomin` And the wild mountain thyme Rolls around the purple heather Will you go lassie go And we`ll all go together To pluck wild mountain thyme All around the bloomin heather Will you go lassie go I will build my love a tower Near yon clear crystal fountain Aye and on it I will pile All the flowers of the mountain Will you go lassie go And we`ll all go together To pluck wild mountain thyme All around the bloomin heather Will you go lassie go If my true love She was gone I would surely find another As the wild mountain thyme Rolls around the purple heather Will you go lassie go And we`ll all go together To pluck wild mountain thyme All around the bloomin heather Will you go lassie go And we`ll all go together To pluck wild mountain thyme All around the bloomin heather Will you go lassie go And we`ll all go together To pluck wild mountain thyme All around the bloomin heather Will you go lassie go And we`ll all go together To pluck wild mountain thyme All around the bloomin heather Will you go lassie go

LISTEN (J.O`Neill)

Are you listening? Jennifer is crying Crying in Di Maggios Accusing him of lying Lying in his teeth You`re treating me like shit And you`re Rubbing my nose in it You`re treating me like I was A thousand miles away David uses reason Reason and psychology Embarrassed by her treason Her emotional display You`re treating me to it And you`re Wrapping yourself around it You`re treating me like I was The sole cause of your pain And all I can do Is listen All I can say Is listen All that I do Is listen Listen Sadie screams into the mask A scream of pain a scream of rage A scream of forty thousand blows The scream that every mother knows At last the scream is gone And prayers are broken on her tongue The sound of crying brings her peace And Ecstasy And all I can do Is listen All I can say Is listen All I can do Is listen Listen I`ll just sit here With my glass To the wall Capturing the sound Your insect voice Write it down Write it down Write it down And all I can do Is listen All I can say Is listen All that I do Is listen Listen And all I can do Is listen All I can say Is listen And all I can do Is listen

ABOUT THE SEA (J.O`Neill)

You know we`re always On the edge of it Melting castles As the sea comes in So be a rover Enjoy the dance of it And be a dancer In your day Sing to me When the rain is falling And the blues is getting in Sail to me While the world is quarelling And the water from my eyes Bleeds salt into the sea In amazement At the strenght of it I can hardly Turn away And when I travel Along the edge of it I hear your voice And you say Sing to me When the rain is falling And the blues is getting in Sail to me While the world is quarelling And the water from my eyes Bleeds salt into the sea I`m in your arms I`m in your hands I`m in your wave I`m on a roll Let me escape I`ll give you Anything you want I see your eyes I see you rise I see you fall I see you fall You know we`re always On the edge of it Oil and water Love and oxygen So be a lover Be a lover `till The big blue breaker Breaks over you Sing to me When the rain is falling And the blues is getting in Sail to me While the world is quarelling And the water from my eyes Bleeds salt into the sea Salt into the sea Salt into the sea Salt into the sea Salt into the sea Salt into the sea

I BELIEVE IN YOU (J.O`Neill)

I believe in Salvador Dali And Beatrice Dalle I believe in Alex the kid and Sam Gopal A world of bicycle chains Lost antennae And Islands of din On the edge of a pin I believe in humans and aliens Ken and Barbie dolls I believe in Jesus and Buddha And Niagara Falls Waves of love Painted queens Lost illusions And primrose And cobalt And words that ring true I believe in you I believe in you I believe in you I believe in you Waves of love Painted queens lost illusions And diamonds And ether And words that ring true I believe in you I believe in you I believe in you I believe in you Yes you know it`s true Well I believe in you I believe I believe I believe In you Yeah I believe I believe I believe In you
