    Standard Lyrics Popyrics

    "Is That All There Is?"

    I remember when i was a girl
    Our house caught on fire
    And i'll never forget the look on my father's face
    As he gathered me in his arms
    And raced to the burning building out on the pavement
    And I stood there shivering
    And watched the whole world go up in flames
    And when it was all over
    I said to myself
    " Is that all there is to a fire ? "
    Is that all there is?

    Is that all there is?
    If that's all there is, my friends, then let's keep dancing
    Let's break out the booze and have a ball
    If that's all there is

    And when I was twelve years old
    My daddy took me to the circus
    The greatest show on earth
    And there were clowns
    And elephants
    Dancing bears,
    And a beautiful lady in pink tights flew high above our heads

    And as I sat there watching
    I had the feeling that something was missing
    I don't know what
    But when it was all over
    I said to myself
    " Is that all there is to the circus ? "

    Is that all there is?
    If that's all there is, my friends, then let's keep dancing
    Let's break out the booze and have a ball
    If that's all there is

    And then I fell in love
    With the most wonderful boy in the world
    We'd take long walks down by the river
    Or just sit for hours gazing into each other's eyes
    We were so very much in love

    And then one day
    He went away
    And i thought i'd die
    But I didn't
    And when I didn't
    I said to myself
    " Is that all there is to love ? "

    Is that all there is?
    If that's all there is, my friends, then let's keep

    I know what you must be saying to yourselves
    If that's the way she feels about it
    Then why doesn't she just end it all
    Oh no. not me. i'm not ready for the final disappointment
    'Cause I know just as well as i'm standing here talking to you
    That when that final moment comes
    And i'm breathing my last breath
    I know what I'll be saying to myself
    " Is that all there is ? "

    Is that all there is?
    If that's all there is, my friends, then let's keep dancing
    Let's break out the booze and have a ball
    If that's all there is

    (PJ Harvey & John Parish, aber eigentlich ein Cover von Peggy Lee)
    wir leben auf dem grund eines ozeanes aus luft

    Darkness at the break of noon
    Shadows even the silver spoon
    The handmade blade, the child's balloon
    Eclipses both the sun and moon
    To understand you know too soon
    There is no sense in trying.

    Pointed threats, they bluff with scorn
    Suicide remarks are torn
    From the fool's gold mouthpiece
    The hollow horn plays wasted words
    Proves to warn
    That he not busy being born
    Is busy dying.

    Temptation's page flies out the door
    You follow, find yourself at war
    Watch waterfalls of pity roar
    You feel to moan but unlike before
    You discover
    That you'd just be
    One more person crying.

    So don't fear if you hear
    A foreign sound to your ear
    It's alright, Ma, I'm only sighing.

    As some warn victory, some downfall
    Private reasons great or small
    Can be seen in the eyes of those that call
    To make all that should be killed to crawl
    While others say don't hate nothing at all
    Except hatred.

    Disillusioned words like bullets bark
    As human gods aim for their mark
    Made everything from toy guns that spark
    To flesh-colored Christs that glow in the dark
    It's easy to see without looking too far
    That not much
    Is really sacred.

    While preachers preach of evil fates
    Teachers teach that knowledge waits
    Can lead to hundred-dollar plates
    Goodness hides behind its gates
    But even the president of the United States
    Sometimes must have
    To stand naked.

    An' though the rules of the road have been lodged
    It's only people's games that you got to dodge
    And it's alright, Ma, I can make it.

    Advertising signs that con you
    Into thinking you're the one
    That can do what's never been done
    That can win what's never been won
    Meantime life outside goes on
    All around you.

    You lose yourself, you reappear
    You suddenly find you got nothing to fear
    Alone you stand with nobody near
    When a trembling distant voice, unclear
    Startles your sleeping ears to hear
    That somebody thinks
    They really found you.

    A question in your nerves is lit
    Yet you know there is no answer fit to satisfy
    Insure you not to quit
    To keep it in your mind and not fergit
    That it is not he or she or them or it
    That you belong to.

    Although the masters make the rules
    For the wise men and the fools
    I got nothing, Ma, to live up to.

    For them that must obey authority
    That they do not respect in any degree
    Who despise their jobs, their destinies
    Speak jealously of them that are free
    Cultivate their flowers to be
    Nothing more than something
    They invest in.

    While some on principles baptized
    To strict party platform ties
    Social clubs in drag disguise
    Outsiders they can freely criticize
    Tell nothing except who to idolize
    And then say God bless him.

    While one who sings with his tongue on fire
    Gargles in the rat race choir
    Bent out of shape from society's pliers
    Cares not to come up any higher
    But rather get you down in the hole
    That he's in.

    But I mean no harm nor put fault
    On anyone that lives in a vault
    But it's alright, Ma, if I can't please him.

    Old lady judges watch people in pairs
    Limited in sex, they dare
    To push fake morals, insult and stare
    While money doesn't talk, it swears
    Obscenity, who really cares
    Propaganda, all is phony.

    While them that defend what they cannot see
    With a killer's pride, security
    It blows the minds most bitterly
    For them that think death's honesty
    Won't fall upon them naturally
    Life sometimes
    Must get lonely.

    My eyes collide head-on with stuffed graveyards
    False gods, I scuff
    At pettiness which plays so rough
    Walk upside-down inside handcuffs
    Kick my legs to crash it off
    Say okay, I have had enough
    What else can you show me?

    And if my thought-dreams could be seen
    They'd probably put my head in a guillotine
    But it's alright, Ma, it's life, and life only.
    When we are inhuman we're one with the birds

    the mountain goats, 'half dead'

    it was raining outside, so I cleaned house today.
    spent half of the morning throwing old things away.
    try not to get caught up,
    try to think like a machine.
    focus in on the task, try not to think about what it means.
    can't get you out of my head.
    lost without you,
    half dead.

    took my spot at the window, looked out at the road.
    dots and dashes of traffic, like a messaging code
    of whole boxes of memories wrapped up at the curb,
    I sang songs to myself that didn't have any words.
    can't get you out of my head.
    lost without you,
    half dead.

    stole out to the backyard late last night.
    pine trees frozen in the silvery moonlight,
    rising like giants from the cold earth.
    what are the years we gave each other ever gonna be worth?
    can't get you out of my head.
    lost without you,
    half dead.
    When we are inhuman we're one with the birds

    Ride the blue wind high and free
    Shell lead you down through misery
    Leave you low, come time to go
    Alone and low as low can be

    If I had a nickel Id find a game
    If I won a dollar Id make it rain
    If it rained an ocean Id drink it dry
    And lay me down dissatisfied

    Legs to walk and thoughts to fly
    Eyes to laugh and lips to cry
    A restless tongue to classify
    All born to grow and grown to die

    So tell my baby I said so long
    Tell my mother I did no wrong
    Tell my brother to watch his own
    And tell my friends to mourn me none

    Im chained upon the face of time
    Feelin full of foolish rhyme
    There aint no dark till something shines
    Im bound to leave this dark behind

    Ride the blue wind high and free
    Shell lead you down through misery
    Leave you low, come time to go
    Alone and low as low can be

    Oh, Di
    They've gone and left me for her other way.
    Each every time I think the wheel around,
    It's gone.

    I've got a reason for heading home
    It's not serene,
    It don't make sense to me.
    I've got the four eyes blooming under half of my bed
    Seems to tingle as the razor ball it cover and claw
    I see it shine.
    I see it stare.
    Holding heart
    In my hand.
    Take the master morgue and make her have him sitting offside
    Let the glory boy of Mr. Henry have it on rye.

    Pass us some normal meat
    Keep us insane.
    Bores who take away
    Feel it.
    The habits survive
    But old of his hand
    Guised in moment he
    Teeny hate.

    Oh, Di
    You should've known you could have rested on me.
    Each every time I kept the real alive
    You took me for the drive to feel the feat
    And it's hard.
    wenn ich liege geht's!

    Oh you silly old man
    You silly old man
    You're making a fool of yourself
    So get off the stage
    You silly old man
    In your misguided trousers
    With your mascara and your Fender guitar
    And you think your can rouse us
    But the song that you just sang
    It sounds exactly like the last one
    And the next one
    I bet you it will sound
    Like this one
    Downstage, and offstage
    Don't you feel all run in?
    And you wonder when they will take it away
    This is your final fling
    But then applause ran high
    But for the patience of the ones behind you
    As a verse drags on like a month drags on
    It's very short but it seems very long
    And the song that you just sang
    It sounds exactly like the last one
    And the next one
    I bet you it will sound
    Like this one
    So get off the stage
    Oh, get off the stage
    And when you get down off of the stage
    Please stay off the stage, Ol
    Get off the stage
    Oh, get off the stage
    And when we've had our money back
    Then I'd like your back in plaster
    Oh I know that you say
    How age has no meaning
    Oh but here is your audience now
    And they're screaming
    Get off the stage
    Oh, get off the stage
    ZCuz I've given you enough of my time
    And the money that wasn't even mine (have you seen the silvery [screen])
    Oh get off the stage...
    For whom the bell tolls
    The paint, my love, gets you going like
    You wanna be got for the next world's scene

    Last boat, stand in a river
    Muddy river, high over level
    Hawk flying is fooling his folly
    Gas hurricanes spray over Heaven
    Weeping willow is bawling the light
    On fire.

    Humans running for cover,
    Wishing for life, gripping the light
    House lift up, trees lift up
    Cars intersect in the middle of the sky.
    O time before, no pull, no gravity on the ground
    Givin' up - it's over
    The world's weight is over the limit

    Our bodies are exploding
    As the sky spills through our mouths.
    All the blue blood is flowing
    The cities, its contents have been ripped out.
    The world is gone.
    Did you know it would last this long?
    You made it to the dark, now you're gone.
    You are gone.

    Great waves
    Frozen in a secret space
    A great big place,
    Dark-spilling universe.

    'malted milk'
    robert johnson

    i keep drinkin' malted milk, tryin' to drive my blues away
    i keep drinkin' malted milk, tryin' to drive my blues away
    baby, you just as welcome to my lovin' as the flowers is in may

    malted milk, malted milk keep rushin' to my head
    malted milk, malted milk keep rushin' to my head
    and i have a funny, funny feelin' and i'm talkin' all out my head

    baby, fix me one more drink and hug your daddy one more time
    baby, fix me one more drink and hug your daddy one more time
    keep stirrin' in my malted milk, mama, until i changed my mind

    my doorknob keeps on turnin', it must be spooks around my bed
    my doorknob keeps on turnin', must be spooks around my bed
    i have a warm, old feelin' and the hair risin' on my head
    When we are inhuman we're one with the birds
