GAY NINJA

THE ROAD

Time is all that's truly free; raised on a Ridge, under a Eucalypt tree.  
I've never left there; not that I didn't care; more like I didn't dare...
And I'm still born about every second day (I'm stillborn).

But I sleep late...

Two-score years for one man; could be a bold plan; Could be a drag, man.
Thinking that the road might take my hand; and lead me forward.
But I'd rather go there after; maybe never...

See the present feed the future with the past;
When it's all digested, there'll be nothing more to ask.  
I can sleep on the road. I can lay on the road. I can pass on the road.
I can be what I was; I can be what I should have been.
I can be what you wanted.

    BASS SOLO 

The only future I can ever see, is a fibro roof under a eucalypt tree.
Don't wanna' leave there, don't wanna' be here, ain't goin' nowhere.
Swap this road for a railway line...

Carry 'Fleagle' home from school...
'Chuckaluck', 'Sammy'; spend the summer in a rip-down pool

Sit in my mini-chair...
Don't wanna leave there.

 

 

TURN AROUND

Turn around, turn around
See the ash fall in wrong places

Turn around, turn around
Watch me stand in darkened spaces

Turn around, turn around
Touch these rapidly changing faces

Turn around, turn around
Stop and turn back to this door

I don't remember your face in that writing on the wall
I don't remember your blood, and the things I did before

Turn around, turn around     And your stars will all seem brighter
Turn around, turn around     I'll reach out and pull you tighter
Turn around, Turn Around    Like an insect to a spider
Turn around, turn Around     Stop and walk back to this door

I don't remember your face in that writing on the wall
I don't remember your blood, as it splashed upon the floor

Turn turn around      We can weigh your sin on a feather
Turn turn around      We can rest in peace forever
Turn turn around      We can lay like buried treasure
Turn turn around      Walk back to this fucking door

SOLO

I don't remember your face in that writing on the wall
I don't remember your blood, as it splashed upon the floor


Turn turn around                    Come and get what's yours; come and get what's yours
Turn around Turn around        You can believe; Don't make me grieve
Turn turn around                    Don't you dare deny what cannot die
Turn around Turn around        (spoken) Please turn around


SOLO

 

 

TIME SHARE

The old man is good for credit; your credit's good enough for 'Benz.
I'll service you on Monday, and on Thursday we'll be friends.
Your God-given arse can be mine; leased by time; with no daily grind to tend.


Husband's lost in action; do you love him as I need you.
That marriage is a full-time gig, yeah.  Let me pet your inner shrew
Don't call me a slut, 'cause my budget is shot and my abs are cut, and my eyes are baby blue.

(Abs - breathe out...)

                                           SOLO

Breathe in. Now let's begin. And that's the end.

Don't want to sound mercenary but a time share's a mutual take opportunity
Come buy you some time, and we'll both do a line; I'll throw in a day for free.                                       
Yeah pay me to please, with guarantees, and you will find a convenient friend in me.

 

 

AUGUST DAY


Your heart was mine; a velvet time; the roots of a waking dream 
An August day, I turned away; cut to another scene
The catcher's mitt is on the lawn; it's time for goodbye again 

A ring of stones, an open fire; we sat by a timeless stream     
We laughed in love; An August day, as blue as I'd ever seen
Now the lawn's cut and trimmed; a canvas of empty green          
Now the sun goes to sleep; and August is night again              

(Why do you cry)
Why do you cry, why do I cry, why do we cry, while the stones still stand 

(You still dance)
You still dance by the pull of the stone, still cool on my shaking hand

(Why do you cry)
Why do you cry, why do I cry, why do we cry, while the circle stands    

(You still dance)
While the moss and the memory live, the time an unbroken strand

SOLO

BRIDGE


(Why do you cry)
Why did you laugh, why did I laugh, why did we laugh at the joy of youth

(You still dance)
For the smell of your warm, honey breath, was the circle of simple truth

(Why do you cry)
Why did you laugh, why did I laugh, why did we laugh on the Avebury Green

(You still dance)
At the joy of the life we had left, and the truths which we hadn't seen

SOLO

 

 

Not For Me To Say

It's only rain will come and wash away the way we choose to stay
I'd cut myself again, but I'm not sure I want to get the blame

It's not for me to say - how long can this love stay
Only pain can make your day.

Come spend some time with us, and you can see what patience means to fuss
And if you'd like a smoke, I'll give you what I can although I'm broke

It's not for me to say - how long can this love stay
Only truth can make your day.

   SOLO

The time is now to say the myth of love is slipping out of luck
You took a drink with me, and I could see you didn't give a fuck

It's not for me to say - how long can this love stay
Only lies can make your day

It's not for me to say - how long can this love stay
It's time for me to walk away.

 

 

Would A Letter Be Better

All the way
I made it from yesterday
I made a bad turn
Tomorrow I'll burn

I'm screaming at the top of my voice
But you don't seem to have no choice

Would a letter be better than a shoe-box filled with dust


Funny thing
To wake to another dream
To wake up at all
Just hoping you'd call

I'm screaming at the top of my voice
But you don't seem to have no choice

Would a letter be better than a shoe-box filled with dust


-- GUITAR SOLO --

Hospital park
A tent and a light for the dark
I waited for you
Forever for you

I'm screaming at the top of my voice
But you don't seem to have no choice

Would a letter be better than a shoe-box filled with dust


my choice; my voice

 

 

ミサイル

音速の壁を越えやって来た

今ここで起こってる事を知る為に
多くの悲しみや
多くの不幸せ
いらないものばかり欲しがっている

心の中に孤独を誰もが抱えてる
誰だって一人きりで存在してる訳じゃない

雑踏の中で強く生きる小さな花が教えてくれた。

見上げれば果てしない空
見下ろせば強い大地
誰だって一人きりじゃ存在なんて意味ないよ。

僕らの夢乗せて月までも星までも飛んでくミサイルだ
僕らの悲しみを音速の向こう側へと運んでくれ  もっと

僕らの夢乗せて月までも星までも飛んでくミサイルだ
タイムリミットなんて無い限りなく果てしなく
ミサイルに乗って行こうよ  もっと
 
 
 

Sitting on the Fence

Hammond and guitars
Munga Beans in bars
Headstones underground
The Hitmen at the Roxy

See you with your claws
My heart inside your jaws
Looking kind of foxy

And I'm sitting on the fence
And I'm taking no offence
But you're being so defense-ively
Lonely

Leather on my sleeves
Leather on your jeans
A rabbit and a snake
My eyes light out to touch you

A thousand subtle lies
A world of smoke and thighs
Looking like you want me

And I'm sitting on the fence
And I'm taking no offence
But you're being so defense-ively
Lonely


GUITAR SOLO


Okay to make a move
You never break your groove
I'm probably full of shit
The Tribesmen do the Roxy

Face inside the light
I'll be with you tonight
Making love by proxy

And I'm sitting on the fence
And I'm taking no offence
But you're being so defense-ively
Lonely

And I'm sitting on the fence
And I'm taking no offence
But you're being so defense-ively
Lonely   Lonely   I'm lonely   So lonely
