Starfish - incorrect Japanese lyrics Print E-mail
Tuesday, 09 October 2012

These were included in the Japanese release of Starfish. Quick calculation led my Mary a nun ... beautiful :)  Many thanks to Cathy for sending this in.

DESTINATION
Our insolence have no way
Of measuring this feeling
Can never cut below the floor 
Or penetrate the ceiling
In the space between our houses
Some bones have been discovered
And our percession lurches on
As if we have recovered
 
Draconian wind unforetold
One solar day
Suddenly your old
A little of a love
Just makes me cold
Makes destination start to unfold
 
Our documents are useless
A force beyond believing
They fought it seven years or so
I need it by this evening
 
In the space between our cities
A storm is slowly forming 
Something eating up our days
I feel it every morning
 
Destination, destination
 
It's not a religion
It's just a TV
Its just a way of making me speak
And distance and speed
Have left us too weak
My destination looks kind of bleak
 
I am a missile burnt out
Our beasts of have been mistreated
I'll tell you it's the only way
To get this road completed
In the space between our bodies
The air has grown small fingers
Just one carress
You're powerless
Like all the goddam singers
 
Destination
 
BLOOD MONEY
Lined with dollars
My insults
And you pay for everything in cold hard cash
They're making the fountain in cinder and ash
In the band
Blood money
In the sand 
Blood money
 
She's worth a ransom
He says do you accept my card
Or can I pay for it now in cold hard cash
I'm priceless
You're worthless
And it's not a bad match
And I know you'll understand
Blood money
There's such a big demand
For blood money
A hundred fifty grand 
Blood money
It's flowing under the land
Like blood money
 
He's worth the ransom
She says why can't you get hard
Because he pays for her now in cold hard cash
He made the front page
I'm gonna bring back the lash
They don't know you understand
This blood money
There's such a big demand
For blood money
Its' one hundred and fifty grand
Blood money
Flowing under the land
Like blood money
 
LOST
Sometimes I'm wondering under .... skies
I feel it's all beginning right before my eyes
I must go back
Resigning my love
Here she comes with penetrated stares
I don't know where but I wish I knew when
Quick calculation led my Mary a nun
 
Because we're lost
Because we're lost
Cold as the stars 
Feeling sparkle like frost
They are so lost
 
Follow her down to worship some god
He never speaks to me
I wonder if that's odd
Then he says you're never listening me
Live to see devagilation
Is your butter and your bread
It's an exquisite course
And it's lips are red
And it's chewed the piss out of me
 
But you are lost 
But you are lost
Now hang up
'Cause the lines are crossed
You are so lost
 
If you're alone and you're feeling' blue
Everyone in pleasure probably feels like that, too
I was just hoping
Don't believe I can do
Here she comes with her unforgiving way
Almost forever I've been drinking these dregs
It must be time to change our brew crued view
 
Before we're lost
Before we're lost
Look at the map
Add up the costs 
before we're lost
 
NORTH, SOUTH, EAST AND WEST
A war's being waged 
And the world's just a stage
In the city
The real estate's crime
And the number plates rhyme
Its critic
Wear a gun and be proud
But their dress aren't allowed
In the city
Dream of a scam
And then rage in the plans
They're critic
 
It's neither here nor there
North, south, and east and west
It has to be somewhere
North, south, and east and west
I take my payment
I catch my fly
And don't wait up for me tonight
You may find me there
North, south, and east and west
 
Have a big throw
Host your own show
In the city
To a wolf from a lamb
In just hop a plane
They're critic
The face of today
Just a scapel away
Restore your love sold
For two dollars plus tone
They're critic
 
Backs are padded
The cars are fadded
In the city
The emperor's clothed
Is the best for from the pros
They're critic
The guys with the brains 
Were all pictured in pain
It's too pretty
The guys with the love
With the bimbo and fucks
They're critic
 
SPARK
I'm saturated
Wet with tears
They spill so easily
In reflection
I see you again
I touch me
Suddenly
 
Fake faith real
'Cause it's here
It's where the air is clear
Where far off things can be quite near
No other paths are needed
Just as spark
 
I'm interested 
You've always been subject
That I could love her
Splendid hills
Are conquered mountains
Climbed on 
Ever turn back
 
Seige seeds grown
'Cause it's here
It's where the air is clear
Where far off things can be quite near
No other paths are needed
Just as sparks
 
ANTENNA
Why do you always run in the sand
That you're so well aware 
Of what's happened there
Right here in this room
You're discontent
You're just a why
There's a thousand tons
Racking in your ears tonight
You turn around and you call me a liar
Laugh today
All the fun life cannot find you she's dead
Have my way
It's the .... Sign and line to me
 
Nothing you say
You'll need that breath one day
Well, you're discontent
You just cold
You translate like a book
The fuse is all cooked
You eat humble pie and it tastes of the road
 
Lucky day
All the fine life cannot find you she said
That's the way
That's the thing I'm designed to be
You think you said
You'll need that breath one day
 
You're just an antenna
You're just a guage
You disturb my slumber
And round up the numbers 
And put them inside your head with a cage
 
Lucky day
Oh, the fine lights cannot find you she said
Make my day
And the sunlight will not blind you
Lucky day
Oh, the fine lights cannot find you
I may never pray
To the poetry that's behind you
 
REPTILE
Too dangerous, too cute
Too evil to let go
And you want to by the hand
Should've stopped this long ago
 
Go now you've been set free
Another month or so you'll be gorging on me 
You lie we smile
I see you slither away with your skinny new tail
Your flickering tounge
And you rattle and scare
Like a real reptile
 
How did you coil around ....
How could you ever know
How I loved your diamond eyes
But that was long ago
Go now you've been set free
Another month or so you'll be poisoning me
You lie we smile
I see you slither away with your skinny new tail
Your flickering tounge
And you rattle and scare
Like a real reptile
 
I should've believed you
She said we had to grow
She was the apple of my eye
It wasn't long ago
 
A NEW SEASON
Shaded crystal water
Bathed in by God's daughter
Sigh and whispers clear
A new season of this year
 
Says we gets to wall and column
Soak up the stars and sand and sun
It strange that water
Nature's been challenged
Saved by fire
Touched and fondled
 
Away stands the tower
In the distance
Days falls our home sun
All over the place
A new season
Chance may kill some of her lonliness
 
It's strange that water
Nature's been challenged
Saved by fire
Touched and fondled
 
Peaceful useful reunion
Is the priestess
Downfalls the real one
In some tophats
 
HOTEL WOMB
Volcano pierced air
Ashes block out the sun
Down in the lair
Where I met here there
With a prize for everyone
I paid eighty dollars for this wedding ring
I couldn't take it off if I tried
And the cactus sure tastes strange
The sweetness goes down inside
I dream I'm safe 
In my hotel womb
Soft and so main
It's a wonderful room
 
A certain village in the night
With the rain falling slow
As we go down stream to the Amozon River
Where the black waters flow
I said why are you people wearing those masks
I said can we be reckonciled
She said the mother of the stone
Has to roam the sky searching for her child
 
I dream I'm safe
In my hotel womb
Soft and so main
It's a wonderful room
I wish I'm at 
In my hotel womb
I sift threw a crack
To that wonderful room
 
Morning comes at last
And she's lying by my side
She's got the face of the widow 
That keeps following me
The father of my bride
I said why are those buildings swaying like trees
I say can't they stop for awhile
She said can't you hear the city lights
In  the nadir
Its just another .....
