Katzenjammer

Land of Confusion

I must have dreamed a thousand dreams
Been haunted by a million screams
But I can hear the marching feet
They're moving into the street
 
Now, did you read the news today?
They say the danger's gone away
Well, I can see the fire's still alight
Burning into the night
 
Too many men, too many people
Giving to many problems
And not much love to go around
Can't you see this is a land of confusion?
 
This is the world we live in
And these are the hands we're given
Use them and let's start trying
To make this a place worth living in
 
Oh, Superman, where are you now
When everything's gone wrong somehow?
The men of steel, the men of power
Are losing control by the hour
 
This is the time, this is the place
So we look for the future
There's not much love to go around
Tell me why this is a land of confusion
 
This is the world we live in
And these are the hands we're given
Use them and let's start trying
To make this a place worth living in
 
(This is the world we live in
And these are the hands we're given
Use them and let's start trying
To make this a place worth living in)
 
I remember long ago
Oh, I remember long ago
When the sun was shining
 

A Kiss Before You Go

Welcome to the crossroads
The centre of your life
A shrink has got your money
And the devil’s got your wife
 
Welcome to the crossroads
The crowded tv show
You form your lips forever
Into a kiss before you go
 

Mother Superior

In the clockwork, in the clockwork,
time is never at ease
A frantic sensation is hammering
nails in your spine
Multiple fractions and
muscle contractions will tear
your mind into shreds, cutting your threads
Do you regret you were born?
 
Take my hands into yours,
dance my senses away
Take my hands into yours,
before mother superior’s home
 
Monsieur, monsieur you look like
the saint in my dreams
Igniting the flame and carving
my name next to yours
This urban decline is
leaving its sign round my neck
Pulling the noose, tells me I’ll lose
There’s nothing to save
 
Take my hands into yours,
dance my senses away
Take my hands into yours,
before mother superior’s home
 
I’m sober, I’m sober, but I wish I was not
A gentle diversion or
a touch of divine I could use
The curtains are closed,
but I still feel exposed to the world
Wishing away somewhere astray
Are you still listening?
 
Take my hands into yours,
dance my senses away
Take my hands into yours,
before mother superior’s home
 

To the Sea

The wind is a-whipping through the open door
Speaking of the sea and the rolling waves
Maybe there's a ship at the bottom now
Or struggling on the surface with a cry for help
Wish I could forget and let the years go by
Wish I could escape from my dreams of you
 
Twenty years ago, it was a howling storm
As the voice of a God from a great beyond
I was standing on the shore as the sky grew dark
With a hand on a Bible and a hand on my heart
Wish I could forget and let the years go by
Wish I could escape from my dreams of you
 
Because all I have left is the voice of the wind
Blowing through the doors of our house
 
The sun was drying up the rain in our sky
Shining gold in our sails and our hearts standing by
Remember what they're singing on their way to the sea:
'Goodbye, fare thee well, goodbye for me'
Wish I could forget and let the years go by
Wish I could escape from my dreams of you
 
Empty were the coffins and the house where we lived
As the grave that I dug by our place on the beach
How I wish the water could be poured out of the sea
So I could go and get you back ashore with me
Wish I could forget and let the years go by
Wish I could escape from my dreams of you
 
Because all I have left is the voice of the wind
Blowing through the door...
Because all I have left is the voice of the wind
Blowing through the door... (one more time!)
All I have left is the voice of the wind
Blowing through the doors... of our house
 

God's Great Dust Storm

Hold my head
Hold my faith
Hold my eyes to the sky.
When my scythe has, has me cut in
God’s great, great dust storm.
 
Take my sins
Wash them clean
Pour a drink on my bones
And watch them, watch them burn in
God’s great, great dust storm
 
I’ll be your gimp
Whipped through the skin
In the hour that you come
There are greedy crows in
God’s great, great dust storm
 
I walked the line
In my best black suit
Through fields in sweet quiet mourn
Please let the faithful come forth in
God’s great, great dust
God’s great, great dust
God’s great, great dust storm
 

I Will Dance (When I Walk Away)

In our cold and empty house
I've lingered now for far too long
I vainly held the rosary
to pray you'd stay with me a while
But nothing seems to keep me here
the way it used to do before
This time it's me that's leaving you
I'll never turn around
 
'Cause when the laughter's gone
I know I must be moving on
 
And I will dance when I walk away
Oh-oh, I'm gonna sing, I won't beg or pray
I will dance when I walk away
Oh-oh, I'm gonna sing, I won't beg or pray
 
No more
 
I'm standing at the crossroads now
the fields of opportunity
I'm ready to go anywhere
I'm full of hope and full of fear
And bridges back have all been burned
and freedom has been duly earned
I'll remember why I've gone
remember where I'm coming from
 
Oh, when the laughter's gone
Oo-oo, I know I must be moving on
 
And I will dance when I walk away
Oh-oh, I'm gonna sing, I won't beg or pray
I will dance when I walk away
Oh-oh, I'm gonna sing, I won't beg or pray
 
And now I leave my mask with you
(The part) The part I played I never knew
(Tonight) Tonight, you´re alone
 
And I will dance when I walk away
Oh, I'm gonna sing, I won't beg or pray
I will dance when I walk away
Oh, I'm gonna sing, I won't beg or pray
 
And I will dance when I walk away
Oh, I'm gonna sing, I won't beg or pray
I will dance when I walk away
Oh, I'm gonna sing, I won't beg or pray
 
(I will dance when I walk away)
(Oh, I'm gonna sing, I won't beg or pray) Oh, no no no no no no
No, I will dance when I walk away
Oh, I'm gonna sing, I won't beg or pray
 
No more
No more, oh no no no
Oh, this is not a home for me
Oooo
