BLOOD AND RAIN: THE SINGLES The Lyrics


PAINTED MOON (J.O`Neill/The Silencers)

Walking home in the rain Blood runs cold in my veins News from a distant shore Blues like never before The moon is new The moon is full The moon is blue The moon is cruel Painted moon Coming to the rescue Angels from another world Love is here to stay So the angels say Running to the rescue Angels flying up above Phantoms in the bay While the natives pray To the painted moon I wash my face and get dressed Time cuts into my wrist So who invents our dreams The hands that hold the machine The moon is new The moon is full The moon is blue The moon is cruel Painted moon Coming to the rescue Angels from another world Love is here to stay So the angels say Running to the rescue Angels flying up above Phantoms in the bay While the natives pray To the painted moon Painted moon Painted moon Ooooh Painted moon Coming to the rescue Angels from another world Love is here to stay So the angels say Running to the rescue Angels flying up above Phantoms in the bay While the natives pray To the painted moon Painted moon Painted moon Painted moon Ooooh Painted moon Painted moon

I CAN`T CRY (J.O`Neill/The Silencers)

I need attention it`s long overdue There may be nothing anyone can do So I sit here insane on the floor And I make up my mind who to kill And just to hone this desperation I think I`ve caught a chill I need attention but no one wants to hear A tiny heartbeat filling me with fear Oh it`s a matter of life or death But I wish it wasn`t up to me So no soft words please save your breath Because I haven`t got the energy Save your tears for this life inside I can`t cry I can`t cry she said I need affection it`s becoming an emergency A lonely passion is all that`s left for me Oh spare me the "Straight from the heart" God knows who`s to blame We will spill this innocent blood Because it hasn`t got a name Say your prayers for this life inside I can`t cry I can`t cry she said Cry Cry I`m learning reason I`m learning patience And I know what I`m made of It`s just a case of another switch off I could spit in the face of love I can`t cry I can`t cry she said Cry Cry Please cry Cry Please cry

I SEE RED (J.O`Neill/The Silencers)

The TV`s on in the blues soft room A twist of lemon in the mouth of the moon The intercom cracks with vitriol I`ve just been talking to a voice in the wall I`ve got these pills and they keep me sane I had a job now I feel no pain Then I wake up from a dream and I`m still dreaming and it`s total silence But I`m still screaming You say that God`s got a narrow mind You say that Heaven is a home for the blind You think you`re clever being cruel this way I`m so scared I might get carried away Away I`ve got these pills and they keep me sane I had a job now I feel no pain Then I wake up from a dream and I`m still dreaming and it`s total silence But I`m still screaming When I see you I see Red I see Red And what do I do I see Red Red Red You feed me poison but I`m still alive You give me money but I`m still deprived And in return for all my love all my love You give me sex and prayers and molotovs I`ve got these dreams and they keep me sane I`ve got my friends and we think the same Then I wake up from a dream and I`m still dreaming and it`s total silence But I`m still screaming When I see you I see Red I see Red And what do I do I see Red Red Red When I see you I see Red I see Red And what do I do I see Red Red Red When I see you I see Red I see Red And what do I do I see Red Red Red

ANSWER ME (J.O`Neill/The Silencers)

Won`t you answer me Said the exile Is there a message for me? Now I feel so far away Will you Walk through the moonlight shadow Sing to a God of love Fight someone else`s battles And lie in a shady grove Shady grove Won`t you answer me Said the soul singer There`s a murmur in here Sound thunders on the wall Will You Walk through the moonlight shadow Sing to a God of love Fight someone else`s battles And lie in a shady grove Shady grove Answer me answer me Speak to me Oh brother won`t you talk to me Whisper to me I said oooh Won`t you answer me Said the coal miner It`s dark down here And gas creeps through the walls Will you Walk through the moonlight shadow Sing to a God of love Fight someone else`s battles And lie in a shady grove Shady grove Walk through the moonlight shadow Sing to a God of love Fight someone else`s battles And lie in a shady grove Shady grove Walk through the moonlight shadow Sing to a God of love Fight someone else`s battles And lie in a shady grove Shady grove Walk through the moonlight shadow Sing to a God of love Fight someone else`s battles And lie in a shady grove Shady grove Walk through the moonlight shadow Sing to a God of love Fight someone else`s battles And lie in a shady grove Shady grove

SCOTTISH RAIN (J.O`Neill/The Silencers)

We dive into a dark doorway Hiding from the clouds of grey Oh babe I don`t mind it at all We stay close to one another Laughing as we watch the waterfall Rain Scottish Rain Rain Scottish Rain Rain Scottish Rain I can feel your pulse beat so strong Feel you warm and feel you young Oh babe Like children once again We stay close to one another Captives of the Scottish Rain Rain Scottish Rain Rain Scottish Rain Rain Scottish Rain Hope it don`t rain all day Rain Scottish Rain Rain Scottish Rain Rain Scottish Rain We stay close to one another Captives of the Natives of the Scottish Rain Radioactive Rain Radioactive Rain

RAZOR BLADES OF LOVE (J.O`Neill/The Silencers)

There is a chill wind blowing outside My window pane is wet with tears from the sky And my record player answers me A crying song for a fool like me The midnight bell is striking twelve Hymns of love ring out for someone else A choir of children sing innocently A crying song for a fool like me The razor blades of love The razor blades of love I stare at the empty screen I`ve nothing left to say I cut up magazine headlines And toss my rhymes away Razor blades of love The razor blades of love The everglades of love Of Love Of Love Razor blades of love Razor blades of love And the TV is on and the curtain are drawn oh my And the wallpaper faces look down in scorn oh my Well I`ll keep my sense of humour And I`ll laugh about it all some day But I`m lonely again And left with a pain That`ll never go away Hey! Razor blades of love Razor blades of love Razor blades of love Of Love Love

I CAN FEEL IT (J.O`Neill)

There`s a murmur in the air And I can`t hear it There`s a magic atmosphere Oh yes you know it`s true There`s a love that`s everywhere And I can feel it I can feel it On a day like today You can wish yourself away There`s nothing to do but I feel blessed When everything`s in the right place And the sun shines in your face You feel like the King of Happiness Oh yes Yes yes yes I got a feeling I got a feeling There`s a murmur in the air And I can`t hear it There`s a magic atmosphere Oh yes you know it`s true There`s a love that`s everywhere And I can feel it I can feel it You came out of the scene You came out of the colour scheme You`ve taken my hand and made me smile So now`s the second of the hour Now`s the rush of the phantom power You`ve taken this boy high as a mile Oh yes Yes yes I get a feeling I get a feeling There`s a murmur in the air And I can`t hear it There`s a magic atmosphere Oh yes you know it`s true There`s a love that`s everywhere And I can feel it I can feel it I get a feeling I get a feeling There`s a murmur in the air And I can`t hear it There`s a magic atmosphere Oh yes you know it`s true There`s a love that`s everywhere And I can feel it I can feel it And I can feel it I can feel it Can you feel it

CELLARS OF DREAMS (J.O`Neill)

Hold me in the dark Wrap me in your skin In the arms of free fall We ride Darker than the night Darker than the womb Holding us like children inside There`s no mercy God is just a man There`s no mercy Love is in command Hold me till I`m silent Hold me till I scream Lovers in a cellar of dreams Imprisoned by these walls In these arms of steel In a world of colours I cry Soldiers of the night Following the stars To a bright oasis We fly There`s no mercy God is just a man There`s no mercy Love is in command Hold me till I`m silent Hold me till I scream Lovers in a cellar of dreams Lovers in a cellar of dreams

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
