Starcadian – Chinatown


Lyrics

Wind on the move
A loving embrace
As we walk down old Chinatown
Looked in your eyes
And studied your face
As my world came tumbling down

With half a truth and smiling scars
You know you know there’s more to you and me and us girl
So you’ll never be the same no matter where you are

And we go and we go
Sometimes high sometimes low
Making choices we’ll always regret
But I’ll always remember the cold Chinatown night we had

A memory of pavement and skin
Under light of the digital skies
A cigarette indelible sin
And I can’t get you out of my mind

With half a truth and smiling scars
You know you know there’s more to you and me and us girl
So you’ll never be the same no matter where you are

And we go and we go
Sometimes high sometimes low
Making choices we’ll always regret
But I’ll always remember the cold Chinatown night we had

Wait for the harrowing hour
You’ll see what could’ve been ours
You won’t forget about me
Sure as the sun and the sea

And we go and we go
Sometimes high sometimes low
Making choices we’ll always regret
But I’ll always remember the cold Chinatown night we had

And we go and we go
Sometimes high sometimes low
Making choices we’ll always regret
But I’ll always remember the cold Chinatown night we had

[Lyrics to Chinatown by Starcadian]



Jack trammell – Critical Mass



From one of those late 80’s, early 90’s underrated bands….
Ladies and Gentlemen… here’s James.

“That’s ok! We’re ensured.”


Sunshine (Adagio in D minor)


Thanks to MA for pointing this one. 😉



 

“Tobacco Island”

[Chorus]
All to hell we must sail
For the Shores of sweet Barbados
Where the sugar cane grows taller
Than the god we once believed in
Till the butcher and his crown
Raped the land we used to sleep in
Now tommorow chimes of ghostly crimes
That haunt Tobacco Island

‘Twas 1659 forgotten now for sure
They dragged us from our homeland
With the musket and their gun
Cromwell and his roundheads
Battered all we know
Shackled hopes of freedom
We’re now but stolen goods
Darken the horizon
Blackened from the sun
This rotten cage of Bridgetown
Is where I now belong

[Chorus]

Red leg down a peg
Blistered burns the soul
The floggings they’re a plenty
But reasons there are none
Our backs belong to landlords
Where branded is there name
Paid for with ten shillings
Cheap labor never breaks
The silver moon is shinin’
Cools the copper blood
Where the livin’ meet the dead
And together dance as one

[Chorus]

Agony, will you cleanse this misery?
For it’s never again i’ll breathe
The air of home
From this sandy edge
The rolling sea breaks my revenge
With each whisper a thousand waves
I hear roar
I’m coming home

Dark is the horizon
Blackened by the sun
This rotten cage of Bridgetown
Is where I now belong

[Chorus]



“Devil’s Dance Floor”

 

Her breath began to speak 
As she stood right in front of me 
The colour of her eyes 
Were the colour of insanity 
Crushed beneath her wave 
Like a ship, I could not reach her shore 
We’re all just dancers on the Devil’s Dance Floor

Well swing a little more, little more o’er the merry-o 
Swing a little more, a little more next to me 
Swing a little more, little more o’er the merry-o 
Swing a little more, on the Devil’s Dance Floor

Pressed against her face 
I could feel her insecurity 
Her mother’d been a drunk 
And her father was obscurity 
But nothin’ ever came 
From a life that was a simple one 
So pull yourself together girl 
And have a little fun

Well she took me by the hand 
I could see she was a fiery one 
Her legs ran all the way 
Up to heaven and past Avalon 
Tell me somethin’ girl, what it is you have in store 
She said come with me now 
On the Devil’s Dance Floor

Well swing a little more, little more o’er the merry-o 
Swing a little more, a little more next to me 
Swing a little more, little more o’er the merry-o 
Swing a little more, on the Devil’s Dance Floor
Swing a little more, on the Devil’s Dance Floor

Well swing a little more, little more o’er the merry-o 
Swing a little more, a little more next to me 
Swing a little more, little more o’er the merry-o 
Swing a little more, on the Devil’s Dance Floor

The apple now is sweet 
Oh much sweeter than it ought to be 
Another little bite 
I don’t think there is much hope for me 
The sweat beneath her brow 
Travels all the way 
An’ headin’ south 
This bleedin’ heart’s cryin’ 
Cause there’s no way out

Well swing a little more, little more o’er the merry-o 
Swing a little more, a little more next to me 
Swing a little more, little more o’er the merry-o 
Swing a little more, on the Devil’s Dance Floor

Well swing a little more, little more o’er the merry-o 
Swing a little more, a little more next to me 
Swing a little more, little more o’er the merry-o 
Swing a little more, on the Devil’s Dance Floor
Swing a little more, on the Devil’s Dance Floor
Swing a little more, on the Devil’s Dance Floor
