The Ocean Blue - Assorted Songs


Cerulean

 

Beneath the Rythm and Sound

 

 
The Ocean Blue

 

 

Ballerina out of Control

Her world came crashing down
And all that it contained
A million pieces of dreams
Coming apart at the seams

But she twists and she whirls
Dismissing it aa away,
Wasn't quite the same as it was Yesterday

Her night begins the day
Why think when we can play
"I find it so hard to find,
A certain dress of that kind"

As she twists and she whirls
And she dances it all away,
The problems persist, they won't Go away
She twists and she whirls
Dancing it all away,

Would rather see the night
Than the reason of the day
I find it so hard to find
Any reason to this kind


Cerulean

Blue skies come down on me
White clouds are now in view,
it rained forty days you know
it rained fory nights you know
Blue skies came down on me.
Be careful what you say
You said that yesterday,
Tell me something new
It's always, always you
Blue skies come down on me
Gray clouds are far away,
I sought it for days on days
I sought it six weeks or so
But blue skies came down on me.
Be careful what you say
You said that yesterday,
Tell me something new
It's always ocean blue
Blue skies come down on me
White clouds are now in view
and you should see the view
and you should see the view
Blue skies


Mercury

Quietly, almost elusively
Almost invisibly,
I found that I
for a moment
Had slipped away.
Ripped in two, then pasted back again,
Then crumpled up inside,
Then tossed aside
you know that
It feels so bad.
oh Mercury
oh Mercury
Happened once, then it
happened twice,
Then it happened thrice,
And now a fourth?
You know that?
Quietly, almost elusively
Almost invisibly,
I found that I
for a moment
Had slipped away.
oh Mercury


The Planetarium Scene

A better place we go to
Without a trace we will leave
A new face we will see
A warm embrace we will receive
Those in front of me
Those among the world
Far away
A better world we go to
Those in time, time times two
Stars above, stars below
And what is man?


Crash

Your lovely daydreams
from the back of youth
You metamorphosed
and then off they flew
Remember me,
when you fall
remember me,
when you
Crash
Your soon tomorrow
in front of you
Holds lovely daydreams
from the background
view
Remember me, when
you fall
remember me, when
you
Crash
Your soon tomorrow
in front of you
You metamorphosed
and then off you flew
Remember me,
when you fall
remember me,
when you
Crash


Sublime

Another radical dream
becomes a long
lost friend
Beneath the rhythm
and sound
lies another meaning
And if you ask me today
to say just what
I'm thinking
You might flee my reply
and run upwards and
run downwards
It was so sublime
This entangled
up dream
still plays on illusion
Trying hard to escape
more jangled delusion
And if you ask me today
and you wonder why
It's not just what
you think
it grows outward
and it holds you
It's so sublime
This American dream
becomes elusive
if you're ready or not
it may reach out and
grab you
And if you ask me today
and you ponder life
you might flee its reply
and run upwards
and run downwards
It was so so so ba ba ba lime m.


Between Something And Nothing

Words that form a sentence
Words that form a phrase
In a poem or a letter
Could not convey the meaning
Of what this man has done
In a painting
On canvas
As the colors fading
They dictate my mood
Can you see me
Are you near me
I find myself on canvas
I find myself on stage
Can you see me
Are you near me
And I long to know you're real
And I long for you to be part of me
I long to know you're real
And I long for you to be a part of me
In the fading twilight
I sit and stare at her
In all her beauty
Her beauty
You know I have to wonder
Why all great men must die
And leave their treasure
They leave their treasure


Vanity Fair

Walking strolling down
Down the gallery of memory
Pictures painted there
And it hangs on the wall
Calling out to me
Down the corridor to the left
Pilgrim walk away
Just walk away
Pilgrim beware of Vanity Fair
Pilgrim beware
Window shopping now
Window shopping down at Vanity Fair
Shall we go inside
Go inside and look around
Would you like to buy
The Red Man kindly asks me
Pilgrim walk away
Just walk away
Pilgrim beware of Vanity Fair
Pilgrim beware
Singing, calling out
Echoes of the truth somewhere
A sea of sinking souls
They can't really understand
Vain, it's calling vain
Watch them take another drink again
Pilgrim walk away
Just walk away
Pilgrim beware of Vanity Fair
Pilgrim beware
