I'm still gathering my thoughts and plans, but I wanted to post these lyrics. They have always spoken to me. I still imagine flying through the morning sky when I hear this song. Then I wonder about giving hang gliding a try...

I wonder...

Icarus: Borne On Wings of Steel

Early in the morning sunlight
Soaring on the wings of dawn
Here I'll live and die with my wings in the sky
And I won't come down no more


Higher than a bird I'm flying
Crimson skies of ice and fire
Borne on wings of steel I have so much to feel
And I won't come down no more


Sail on, sail on, I will rise each day to meet the dawn
So high, so high, I've climbed the mountains of the sky
Without my wings you know I'd surely die
I found my freedom flyin' high
I've climbed the mountains of the sky



Floating on a cloud of amber
Searching for the rainbow's end
Earth so far below me,
I'm here alone, free
I can't come down no more.



I'm working on a full post about last night but while you're waiting here are the lyrics from one of the songs Sylvan played.

In a vaporous world - an appearance so bright
where the people are blurred and hard to visualise
In inscrutable lands with asynchronous time
we are living alone and still dehumanised

In invisible realms just sporadically clear
see us huddled in peace so inconspicuously
In a region of mind where comparisons fail
we are leading our lives ...

Different faces on the other side in our artificial paradise
In a world full of fates and illusions - do you see them?

Through emotional states - with a mask made of ice
Where the bridges yet fade and where the tears have dried
Here the values have changed with the light, actually pale
Here we're leading our life ...

Different faces on the other side in our artificial paradise
In a world full of fates and illusions do we see them?

Here – you can believe me! – yeah, here the world is made of gold with
promises so bright Here it is so easy and here we just forget ourselves
that´s why we feel alright ... Here – we can´t deny it! – yeah, here we
close our eyes and keep the distance day and night Here – why should we
hide it? – yes, here we can enjoy the time and rather feel alright ...
Here we`ll keep our secrets – yeah, here`s the land of milk and honey
where the spirits fly Here – without a regret – yes here we drink our
souls and though we flee we feel alright ...

Suddenly for a short glimpse of time – did you realise?
Full of life – so sincere!
Suddenly from the glance and the warmth in those eyes
And the answer was so clear
Faces within a cold, they rise - Breaking the envelopes of ice
See how the silhouettes of life finally fade ...

Evacuate identities until we leave us incognito
Without pain but gradually we vanish in insensitivity
Naturalised narcotic dreams they supersede us numb and restless
Paralysed cosmetic queens within a surgical and stiff parade

Like jigsaw pieces try in vain to release our face, but we hide the
trace to please - with an apathy - the wish to increase isolation
in an irritating clean and an oh so gracious anonymity!
So there are no surprises in a space full of lies too cold - just erase
the hope to fight hypocritical ideas, to release the feelings we need
to escape our fucking precious anonymity!

What do we keep in our heads? What do we need in our minds?
Will we succeed and regret or will we become dumb and blind?

Emphasise eventually our superficial generation
Affluent society may - without doubts - tend to neglect their force
Decadence, mistrust and pride begin to drown our civilisation
But human on the other side and rather individual, indeed

Like jigsaw pieces try in vain to release our face, but we hide the
trace to please - with an apathy - the wish to increase isolation
in an irritating clean and an oh so gracious anonymity!
So there are no surprises in a space full of lies too cold -
just erase the hope to fight hypocritical ideas, to release the feelings
we need to escape our fucking precious anonymity!

What do we keep in our heads? What do we need in our minds?
Will we succeed and regret or will we become dumb and blind?

Do we see them? Do we see the other side?
Do we see them? Do we know what we deny?

I can't wait for the morning sun
As I stand with the sea
And the ocean she understands
Just the man I could be.

I met him in a pub one night
In a crowd of Well-to-do's
He had a claudagh (sp?)on each finger
And a shamrock on each shoe.
And when he said Top o' the Mornin'
My heart was filled with dread.
Well he said his name was Danny Boy
So I shot him in the head.

Raise up a cheer and lift your pints
and hold them way up high.
And sing a song of tragedy beneath the irish sky.
From the glen the pipes are calling,
But he never will reply.
For I buried Danny Boy beneath
the fields of Athenry.

Tu-ra-lu
Tu-ra-lu
Tu-ra-lay
Tu-ra-Lay
I thought I might drop him in Gallway Bay.
Tu-ra-lu
Tu-ra-lu
Tu-ra-lye
Tu-ra-Lye
Well I buried Danny Boy beneath
the fields of Athenry.

Well the guarda, they fell upon me
And they took away my gun.
And a hush fell o'er the crowd
When they saw what I had done.
Said the guardah, "God forgive me,
For I'm sure in hell to burn."
Then he shot poor Danny once again
To make sure he won't return.

Chorus

Well, some call me a hero
And some call me a fiend.
But they still sing his sad ol' song
While drinking beer dyed toxic green.
But my sentence, it was commuted.
It seems I'm off scott free.
Well, I think I'll have another pint
And wait for Michael Flatly.

Whatever is Wrong With You?

We need to talk..
about the way you've been behaving
We need to talk..
about the Christmas lights in your clothes
We need to talk..
about the stranger in the kitchen
We need to talk..
about the scissors and the silver foil
I thank God..
You're so fabulously..
Odd

Whatever is wrong with you
Whatever is wrong with you
Whatever is wrong with you
Is so right for me

We need to talk..
about the wedding cake, and the wet suit
We need to talk..
about the policeman down the hall
You're truly strange
But it wouldn't do for us all to be the same

Whatever is wrong with you
Whatever is wrong with you
Whatever is wrong with you
Is so right for me
Just right for me

Today is the beautiful [livejournal.com profile] hollyqueen's birthday! I hope you have a great day, my love! Here's a song that makes me think of you:

How can you be
Like a sky stretched out before me
And the world is turning your way
Even darkness is better this way

Can it be true
That it all comes rushing from you
When my resistance is gone
And there's nothing that I can lean on

You are the wind at my back
You give what I lack
You're the jewel in my hand
You're like rain on dry land

You're the focus the beam
You're realities dream
You're the blue in my black
You're the wind at my back

All of the above
I'II have the lot for my love
And as we're becoming somehow
As we're changing the future to now

I just want to live
In the place that you have to give
I'll let the heat beat me down
Until the water comes down

You are the wind at my back
You give what I lack
You're the jewel in my hand
You're like rain on dry land

Yon're the focus the beam
You're realities dream
You're the blue in my black
You're the wind at my back

You are the wind at my back
You give what I lack
You're the jewel in my hand
You're like rain on dry land

And my soul has been kissed
Just because you exist
You're the dream that's a fact
You're the wind at my back

You're the wish that I make
You're the prize I might take
You're the gold that is free
You're the groom on one knee

You're the focus the beam
You're realities dream
You're the blue in my black
You're the wind at my back

If paradise is half as nice as heaven that you take me to
Who needs paradise I'd rather have you.
They say paradise is up in the stars
But I needn't sigh because it's so far
'Cos I know it's worth a heaven on earth
For me where you are.

A look from your eyes, a touch of your hand
And I seem to fly to some other land
When you are around my heart always pounds
Just like a brass band.

If paradise is half as nice as heaven that you take me to
Who needs paradise I'd rather have you
Oh yes I'd rather have you.

If paradise is half as nice as heaven that you take me to
Who needs paradise I'd rather have you
Oh yes I'd rather have you.

They say paradise is up in the stars
But I needn't sigh because it's so far
'Cos I know it's worth a heaven on earth
To me where you are.

A look from your eyes a touch of your hand
And I seem to fly to some other land

When I Win

Apr. 3rd, 2007 03:42 pm
There's a house on a hill,
A great big spankin' beautiful house,
With a view to kill,
Out the back, there's a pool,
A turquoise liquid paradise, man that water's cool!
But do I live there? Do I live there? Do I live there? No, you do!

But when I win, you're gonna have to let me in!
And I'm bringin' all my friends, we're gonna have some fun,
When I win, you're gonna have to let me in,
We're singin' and dancin', We're stayin' until we see the sun!

A brand new car goes flyin' past,
One sexy set of wheels, that Maserati's fast!
The touch of steel, the smell of leather,
Hear the turbo squeal, squeal and whine with pleasure,
Do I drive that machine? Am I behind that wheel? Am I in that car? No, you are!

But when I win, you're gonna have to let me in!
And I'm throwin' out your Kenny G, I'm blastin' Eminem!
When I win, you're gonna have to let me in,
I'm crankin' up the stereo, I'm never slowin' down ever again!

A trendy club, so exclusive,
Prada and Gucci, models so elusive,
Red velvet rope security,
They're letting all the rich folk in,
Everyone but me,
But do I care? Do I care? Do I care? Yes I do!!!!

But when I win! They're gonna have to let me in!
And I'm wearin' what I want, I won't be dressed in black...
When I win, they're gonna have to let me in!
In my t-shirt, jeans, and yellow wellies, that'll be some mighty craic!

Now there's a boat, no it's a yacht,
Got a helicopter pad, it's huge, it's worth ... a lot!
Pretty girls, in bikinis,
Suckin' down beluga caviar, sippin' on martinis.
It's not me, no it's not me, it's not me... But it sure as hell will be!

'Cause when I win, they're gonna have to let me in!
I'm bringin' Guinness by the case, we're gonna have some fun,
When I win, they're gonna have to let me in,
We're drinkin' whiskey from the bottle and we're stayin!
We're drinkin' whiskey from the bottle and we're stayin, we're stayin
We're stayin' until we see the sun.

Dead Again

Mar. 14th, 2007 02:33 pm
First to admit I'm a doomed droog addict
And I always will be. Hey man, don't follow me
No excuse for drug abuse
Said these lines a thousand times
Don't want to live atrial fib from neurosis, cerosis.

Please make me smile if you learn from my trial
Baby I'll pay the price. Maybe saving your life for ya
I can't state the point enough
The pickup's easy, the put down's rough
Up the nose or tap a vein no one else but you to blame

I can't believe I died last night Oh God I'm dead again
I can't believe I died last night I'm fucking dead again

Chemical joy turning thee paranoid
Recently buried deep greenwood cermetery
I had no pulse last time I checked
I'd trade my life for self respect
There are some things worse than death

I can't believe I died last night Oh God I'm dead again
I can't believe I died last night I'm fucking dead again
Twenty-twenty-twenty four hours to go I wanna be sedated
Nothin' to do and no where to go-o-oh I wanna be sedated
Just get me to the airport put me on a plane
Hurry hurry hurry before I go insane
I can't control my fingers I can't control my brain
Oh no no no no no
Twenty-twenty-twenty four hours to go....
Just put me in a wheelchair and put me on a plane
Hurry hurry hurry before I go insane
I can't control my fingers I can't control my brain
Oh no no no no no
Twenty-twenty-twenty four hours to go I wanna be sedated
Nothin' to do and no where to go-o-o I wanna be sedated
Just put me in a wheelchair get me to the show
Hurry hurry hurry before I go loco
I can't control my fingers I can't control my toes
Oh no no no no no
Twenty-twenty-twenty four hours to go...
Just put me in a wheelchair...
Ba-ba-bamp-ba ba-ba-ba-bamp-ba I wanna be sedated
Ba-ba-bamp-ba ba-ba-ba-bamp-ba I wanna be sedated
Ba-ba-bamp-ba ba-ba-ba-bamp-ba I wanna be sedated
Ba-ba-bamp-ba ba-ba-ba-bamp-ba I wanna be sedated
You're made of my river baby
You're made of my sin

And i cant tell where your lust ends
And where your love begins

I didn't want to hurt you baby
I didn't want to hurt you
I didn't want to hurt you
But you're pretty when you cry

And the moon gives me permission
And I enter through her eyes

She's losing her virginity and all her will to compromise

I didn't want to hurt you baby
I didn't want to hurt you
I didn't want to hurt you
But you're pretty when you cry

I didn't want to fuck you baby
I didn't want to fuck you
I didn't want to fuck you
But you're pretty when you're mine

I didn't really love you baby
I didn't really love you
I didn't really love you
But I'm pretty when I lie

You hurt me baby
I hurt you baby

If you knew how much I love you, you would run away
But when I treat you bad it always makes you want to stay

I didn't want to hurt you baby
I didn't want to hurt you baby
How can you do this to me now?
