Magic Muscle

The muscle

I CAN TRAVEL ANYWHERE/FLY BROTHERS
Days majestial splendour, drawing to a close;
Smell a night-time nightmare, hot fear in your nose;
Faces crawling, walls are falling, astral spirit flows;
Paranoia prickles plunder, feel it strike my brain;
Sulphur fumes in rain, Fizzle crack & flame.

Body’s calling, I don’t care; I can travel anywhere,
Body’s calling I don’t care; I can travel anywhere,
Til I’m free, Yeah I’m free.
And I aint got no troubles, And I aint got no cares,
When I aint got my body, I can travel anywhere, anywhere,
I can travel anywhere, anywhere, I can travel anywhere, anywhere,
I’m free. I’m freeeee.

Here is orange, there is blue; Silken scarves to conquer you;
Bring me Satan on a silver tray, For I do not fear him anyway;
Conjure gaseous vertebrea, call it God, call it truth, call it love, love, love.

People ride on a common idea, that deep inside there’s nothing unreal
To face up to
Well maybe I’m just a’goin’ insane but the people I know are going to gain
Their freedom
All the time my mind is swimmin’, I just grin at uptight women,
When I’m feelin’ alright.
When I’m down there’s people I hate, coming on ‘sane’ and being so ‘straight’
“Go kill for your country”? Well I’d rather that IT died for ME !!

Fly brothers, there’s no need to stay on the ground;
Earthly matters can only be the sound…
Of dying… dying… I can hear you cry, I can watch you die.
Crying and Dying…. I can hear you cry, and can watch you die !!

We’re tired of being behind locked doors, it’s time the people learned to score
Some comfort;
Don’t think these are stupid ideas, they come from ancient histories,
They’re holy.
Colours pure before your eyes, melting faces turn to ice,
They’re waiting.
Locked behind the doors of time , and we have found the key,
Why are you hesitating??

Fly brothers, there’s no need to stay on the ground
Earthly matters can only be the sound
Of crying, dying… I can hear you cry, watch you die.
I said crying, dying… I can hear you cry, I can watch you die.
Fly brothers……… Fly

WOODCARVER MAN
On a hill, beneath a tree; I close my eyes, you’re here with me,
The wind picks up & I’m alone; I’m all mixed up, the dream is gone.

Chorus:
Woodcarver man, you are my friend (yes you are);
You carve your dreams, won’t you carve some for me.

The sun goes down, another day; the wind has blown the light away;
And night will bring the peaceful rain, And men who dream are sad again.

Chorus:

Darkness is here again, and the weather’s cold outside;
Memories are here again, to capture and control my mind.
Everywhere the shadows dance, and maybe there’s just a chance;
In one of these the answer lies, and tears will cease to cloud our eyes.

On a hill, beneath a tree; I close my eyes, you’re here with me,
The wind picks up & I’m alone; I’m all mixed up, the dream is gone.

Chorus:

HERE AND NOW
Maybe that you think I’m a fool, but I am still amazed by the ultra-cool;
Yes, I know we’re breaking all the rules, I know you’re still at school.
But there just might be a little thing you could do;
Coz I’m just like a blind man, stuck in a room with a view.
I know you’re very young, but in a year,
you may not be feeling the way you feel now.

So why wait a year, the moment is here
Here & now. Here & now.

Maybe that the rules are all wrong, but they still remain,
Are they all too strong for your feelings to overcome for very long?
Yez there just might be a little thing you could do;
But I’m just like a blind man knowing you’re so good lookin’.
Coz I know you’re very young, but in a year,
you may not be feeling the way you feel now.

So why wait a year? The moment is here.
Here & now. Here & now !!

LARGE TRANSIT VAN
I can think of many reasons why I could be lazy;
But I see of no good reason why I should be.
I’m a hard working man.

So I’m selling-out my serious side
I’m cashing-in my dues
I earned ‘em every godamned one,
Sure got taught the blues…. “The blues”.

Seeing out and looking in to why I’m going, where I’ve bin,
Tell me won’t ya, will it all begin again?
Begin again

Yeah, I know you’ve heard it all before, but what’s there left to say ?
Well just that we done our work, had our fun, now give us some pay;
We want our pay. (Alright.)

LONG HARD ROAD
It’s been a long hard road,
but now the tarmac’s melting in the heat of the sun.
Here comes the sun, the work is all done
Let’s have some fun, Here comes the sun.

I’ll be moving on soon
by the light of the stars & the moon
Let them shine on me, shine on you
and anyone who believes that it’s true

Yeah, I know, It’s been a long hard road,
but now the tarmac’s melting in the heat of the sun.
Here comes the sun, the work is all done
So let’s have some fun, Here comes the sun.

The magic

YOU BETTER SEE
I was walking, looking for you; you were asking if it were true.
You didn’t believe me then, baby;
You better look now, you better see.

You were walking, and I was looking for ya,
Now you’ve found THEIR way,
You know, we were waiting, you lost us; You lost us.
Won’t you look there baby, won’t you look there now.
What do you see now? What do you see, babe ?

So, the wind cries…… out to you. (You better see.)

*SPRING GREEN BLUES
Well I got to find myself my woman
Coz she keeps on driving me wild 
I said you know I gotta find me some woman
And ya know, ya know she’s driving me mad
Don’t you feel, don’t you fear it??
Oh, wow, it’s just like dying….
Yeah, that’s my fantasy child …..
You got feelin’s, yeah I got a feelin’ that your high….
I been takin’ a stride outside, I know that your feelin’ mighty high.

DESERT SANDS
Alone again. Ooh, Desert sands, find myself drifting,
‘Cross them desert sands. Ooooh orange, yellow, blue…. Blue skies.
It was written…..Written was the word “WHY”? …. In the sky….
*See my black skinned lady riding by
But she hasn’t taken the time to cry
Could you believe in what you see
If I could tell you that it’s me

Mmm, desert sands… oooh, I find myself driftin’
All ‘cross desert sands
Oooh orange, oooh yellow…oooh blue…Blue skies.
Find myself travellin’ ….mmmm, desert sands.

SCHOOLGIRL LOVE/FEEL IT FEAR IT
Tryin’ to tell the world I been mistreated;
Schoolgirl love is treating me unkind.
Rolled me up a little piece of heaven;
When she got home from school she blew my mind.
(Feel it, Fear it….Just got to feel, just got to fear …ad lib)
Feel it, (I’m feelin’ it) Steal it (I’m fearin’ it.)
*The first time that you chat me & you took me home, and I couldn’t see;
With your long red hair, and your cloak on top, I couldn’t see.
I couldn’t read, I couldn’t hear, I couldn’t see, I couldn’t breathe…
(You know I couldn’t see; You know I couldn’t feel; You know I couldn’t breathe; you know I couldn’t touch, you know I couldn’t bleed. I was gone.)
Coming on evening time, the sun was going down like a rhyme
I once read when I could see, when I could hear,  Come now dame, dame, dame, tell me your name? Well child.  But it’s a wild child; it’s just a child, now. You’re just a child. And it’s just voodoo, and it’s a child now; a hoodoo child. Voodoo… you got a child; got yourself a child now. Got a child, got myself a child here. A wild, wild, wild, wild child.
“And the dream is coming on. And you feel that your dream is coming on…….”
