This Side of Paradise

paradise-340x340

This Side of Paradise

On this side of Paradise
One feels the tenderness of the evening breeze along the shore
Calm and giving, the microscopic pebbles of sand caress the candid feet of the aimless wanderers –
Who by day roam the beaches charmed by the perplexities of their own subconscious realities
Only by night do they seek actual gratification by means of gross carnal affinity
Satisfying the need to rid themselves of their bestial tendencies; meanwhile, declining the possibilities of obtaining any possible form of spiritual propinquity

It is on this side of Paradise where dreams are imagined
Though they fail to become reality because of the sequestered innovation that lies locked away within the confines of the mind
Only at the darkest hour of night may it appear,
For in order to dream one must be sleeping

Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now

the-smiths

Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now

I was happy in the haze of a drunken hour
but heaven knows I’m miserable now
I was looking for a job, and then I found a job
and heaven knows I’m miserable now

In my life
why do I give valuable time
to people who don’t care if I live or die

Two lovers entwined pass me by
and heaven knows I’m miserable now
I was looking for a job, and then I found a job
and heaven knows I’m miserable now

In my life
why do I give valuable time
to people who don’t care if I live or die

What she asked of me at the end of the day
Caligula would have blushed
“You’ve been the house too long” she said
and I naturally fled

In my life
why do I smile
at people who I’d much rather kick in the eye

I was happy in the haze of a drunken hour
but heaven knows I’m miserable now
“You’ve been the house too long” she said
and I naturally fled

In my life
why do I give valuable time
to people who don’t care if I live or die

Wish You Were Here – Pink Floyd

pink floyd psych

Wish You Were Here

So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell,
blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?
And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?
How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We’re just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found? The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

Written by Roger Waters
Performed by Pink Floyd

Glittery Gold

greed art

Glittery Gold

Glittery, glittery gold
Tarnishing yellow, rapidly old
Light as a feather, panting from the mold
Open the door and let it all unfold

A weary query; it’s dark and scary
Tarry and carry the balls of fire that beam glaring and starry
Harry and Mary soon wish to be married
Forever together, their love glistens all the toils they’ve tarried

Wishing thinking
Leads the minds to sinking
Drinking and eating,
Savoring the moments that are fleeting

Precious silver stones
Are all that our hearts have ever owned
Happiness ought not to be loaned
And truthfulness never bemoaned

There is a Light That Never Goes Out

1992 There Is A Light That Never Goes Out

A classic song taken from The Smiths’ 1986 album The Queen is Dead.

There Is A Light That Never Goes Out

Take me out tonight
Where there’s music and there’s people
Who are young and alive
Driving in your car
I never never want to go home
Because I haven’t got one anymore

Take me out tonight
Because I want to see people
And I want to see life
Driving in your car
Oh please don’t drop me home
Because it’s not my home, it’s their home
And I’m welcome no more

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes in to us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well the pleasure, the privilege is mine

Take me out tonight
Take me anywhere, I don’t care
I don’t care, I don’t care
And in the darkened underpass
I thought Oh God, my chance has come at last
But then a strange fear gripped me
And I just couldn’t ask

Take me out tonight
Oh take me anywhere, I don’t care
I don’t care, I don’t care
Driving in your car
I never never want to go home
Because I haven’t got one
No, I haven’t got one

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes in to us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well the pleasure, the privilege is mine

Oh, there is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out

Lovers of the World Unite

vintage 2

Won’t you love me in some kind of way
Don’t just see me without hearing what I have to say
Look at the stars burning bright and hard
They illuminate the night within your heart and absolve the scars

Lovers of the world unite!
Do away with the fear of the world
If they keep on with the hate
It’ll be fine, for the travesties of their despair awaits

But convert them with the blossoming flowers
So that they may laugh like babies
And spray them with the crystallized love of the morning hours
Turning their frowns into the flaunting smiles of the crazies

When the day comes, and the lovers are free
We’ll all take over this wretched world and rid it of it’s horrors
Yes, we’ll take it over – with peace and love – giving the world a chance to see
The beauty of love and it’s eternal supremacy

Lovers of the world unite!
It isn’t your home anymore, nor is it my home
The world is now ours and a home to us all
Do away with lies and deceit! What good has it shown?

There’s nothing left of the evil we’ve sown
But emptiness and pain in a world without gain
The time has come for us to change the way we live
To do away with hate and greed, and begin to love and give!

Transcient

trasncient

Transcient

That moment of magic
In which you hear the music of the earth
Being played to the precious instant of living
You’ve been rewarded by the heavens above
To have lived is a temporal memory
That transcends into an eminent reality
