lost gems: lyricals

here are the lyrics to two jams we never got to record. oh well. i like the words though so i’m sharing them. - matty king

BURN: Ring the bells. Pull water from the well. You bring the pain and I’ll burn down hell. I was just biding my time until I could burn you out. Knew what I had to do. No hesitating, no doubt. Burn Burn Burn! The fires burn tonight. By a blood red moon can you see the light? I can see the light! I can see the light! No more leg irons or whips on my back. No more sorrow. I took care of that. Now like all this smoke that hangs in the air I’ll just twist away and disappear. Burn Burn Burn! The fires burn tonight. By a blood red moon can you see the light? I can see the light! I can see the light!

SAILOR’S GIRL: Every sail on the horizon sends my heart a flutter with the thought that you’re coming home. But then my heart sinks to the bottom when I see the colors are not your own. Down by the water the sea grows restless. Down by the water I wait for you. Down by the water my eyes grow weary. Down by the water I dream of you. I’ll always be your fair haired girl. You’ll always be my bright eyed boy. Until the end of days I’ll hope that we’ll meet again on this shore. Down by the water the sea grows restless. Down by the water I wait for you. Down by the water my eyes grow weary. Down by the water I dream of you.

HOT DAMN: I was born a tiger, I howl with desire, and I thirst for mountains. Homeward bound ships full of swaying hips swagger on the sea. Oh hot damn! Let’s do it again. Let’s get higher than we ever been. Oh hot damn! Let’s do it again. It’s time for a resurrection. The lights they hum while the angels slum and the joint rolls on a wave. Hands on the bow, shake it on down, and never ever let go. Oh hot damn! Let’s do it again. Let’s get higher than we ever been. Oh hot damn! Let’s do it again. It’s time for a resurrection. Hot damn! Hot damn! Hot damn! Hot damn!

HAIL HAIL: Switch me on, one thousand fold. Heat me up, never let me get cold. The match and the moth. Sin and salvation. White heat sweats out serpent’s poison. Hail! Hail! Rock and Roll! Who stole the soul? Who stole the show? Hail! Hail! Rock and Roll! Who stole the soul? Who stole the show? The blood and the dirt. Death rattle and roll. Rattle me ecstatic and make me whole. Let the light fall down on my face. Rise me up and take me to that place. Hail! Hail! Rock and Roll! Who stole the soul? Who stole the show? Hail! Hail! Rock and Roll! Testify Pedro! I want to believe…

KENTUCKY: Folks round here ain’t got much money and I’m just trying to get ahead. The timbers fallen. The coal’s stripped. Yeah. Live off the land just like my grandpappy. Plant a crop in the ground. Live off the land just like my pappy. Natural as hell. I plant one for the government, one for the thieves, and then I get one just for me. Bluegrass. Green hills. Best stay out of my hollow. I got copperheads and guns. You should know that I’ll do what needs to be done. I plant one for the government, one for the thieves, and then I get one just for me. Bluegrass. Green hills. Kentucky.

GOODIS: Day hits like pavement. Night hangs like a hush. Shoot the piano player but leave me alone. The moon’s in the gutter and I’m getting stoned. Turn down the lights. My eyes are sore. You’re quite a sight. I do adore. Shoot the piano player but leave me alone. The moon’s in the gutter and I’m getting stoned. Swing low chariot, come down easy! Swing low chariot, come down…

SAILOR’S GRAVE: The hull’s cracked wide. Swollen skies rain through. I float in the drink and think of you. Rocked in the cradle of the deep. Rocked in the cradle of the deep. Rocked in the cradle of the deep. A sailor’s grave for me. I pray to get home. Leave this madness behind. I’ll crawl in your arms and never leave your side. Rocked in the cradle of the deep. Rocked in the cradle of the deep. Rocked in the cradle of the deep. A sailor’s grave for me. Black waves wash me under. Dark deep fills my lungs.
