‘The Grand Slambovians’ Lyrics

THE TRANS-SLAMBOVIAN BI-POLAR EXPRESS

I had a dream last night and it held me in its arms

I rode a train of light and it kept me safe from harm

It whispered, “Oh my love, oh my child, oh my dream

I will give you the light if you just give me the means”

On the Trans-Slambovian Bi-Polar Express

And then that train rolled on into the fears I know too well

To where my demons fly, yeah it rode right into hell

And then that light shone out and that whistle blew

And that great voice cried out, “Hey I’ve come for you!”

Get on the Trans-Slambovian Bi-Polar Express

We’re on the Trans-Slambovian Bi-Polar Express

Some great love shot right through me

Untangled all those fears

It acted like it always knew me

It said, “Oh my child I’m always here”

And then I awoke into this world that we live in

It all seemed a joke, and its logic wearing thin

So I said, “Hey come back, let’s make it end and let’s begin

And if you help me out I will help you in”

On the Trans-Slambovian Bi-Polar Express

We’re on a Trans-Slambovian Bi-Polar Express

Get on the Trans-Slambovian Bi-Polar Express

We’re on a Trans-Slambovian Bi-Polar Express

Get on the Trans-Slambovian Bi-Polar Express

 

VERY HAPPY NOW

I’m very happy now

I don’t know what has made it so

I’m very happy now

And while I am I think I’ll go

I wish the best for you

I wish the same for who you choose

I know you’re not for me

Was easier for you to see

That’s right!

I’m very happy now

I’m finally free of trying to try

To make our love work out

For making truth out of a lie

I know you’re not for me

Was easier for you to see

Was blinded by the hope

I thought I saw you saw in me

That’s right!

I’m very happy now

I haven’t felt this way in years

I’m very happy now

This moment’s just not right for tears

So if you see me cry

It’s kinda like the rain you see

There really is no why

There’s not a bit of pain in me

Oh no!

Let’s go!

LOST HIGHWAY

Woke up this morning, hit the high water mark

of being tired of living in the fog and in the dark

I didn’t go to work, I couldn’t handle the jive

I gotta find better reasons for staying alive

Aahooooo

Aahooooo

Aahooooo

Aahooooo

Gonna gas up the Caddy, gonna hit the high road

I’m gonna get outta’ town ‘for my conscience explodes

I’m gonna find the lost highway, I know it’s out there somewhere

And get back to the garden on two fins and a prayer

Aahooooo

Aahooooo

Aahooooo

Aahooooo

Gonna drive back to Eden, gonna straighten things out

Gonna find out what causes all the fear and the doubt

I’m gonna visit that angel with the big flaming sword

Pay the price of admission and then go see the Lord

Aahooooo

Aahooooo

Tell him that I’m sorry I’m the one to blame and

I’ll put it right, yeah I’ll put it right

Get us off the grid and get us reconnected to the love and the light

Love and the light

Aahooooo

Yeah I’ll be your Adam if you’ll be my Eve

We’ll erase all the pages that caused God’s heart to grieve

We’ll forgive that serpent, it was us took the bite

And rewrite the story about how we get it right

Jump in the Caddy drive up to the stars

Go and find out what Spring is like on Jupiter and Mars

Aahooooo

Aahooooo

Aahooooo

Aahooooo

Aahooooo

On the lost highway

Aahooooo

Aahooooo

Aahooooo

Aahooooo

Aahooooo

THE INVISIBLE

Well I’m so happy you are here with me

Yeah I’m so happy you are here with me

Whenever I feel afraid I close my eyes and pray

And I enter the invisible with you

Well once upon a time we were alone

Even in our minds we were alone

Then we faced all our fears, we drowned in our own tears

And we entered the invisible again

This world’s a lonely place

We made it such a lonely place

This world’s a lonely place

We made it such a lonely place

It’s not the only place there is just one and only place that’s true

And it’s here with you

This world’s a lonely place

We made it such a lonely place

This world’s a lonely place

We made it such a lonely place

It’s not the only place there is just one and only place that’s true

Yeah it’s here with you

I’m so happy you are here with me

Yeah I’m so happy you are here with me

Whenever I feel afraid I close my eyes and pray

And I enter the invisible with you

Yes, I enter the invisible with you

I just enter the invisible with you

WHO IS THIS GIRL

So many layers and concept conveyers

And players who say things I don’t understand

Walls and illusions and so much confusion

Emotions and oceans that drowned all my plans

And who is this girl, I don’t know right now,

But I love her, I love her, I love her I do

Yeah who is this girl, I don’t know right now,

But I’m thinking of her in all that I do

Our heads always bouncing, our hearts always pouncing

Protecting, attacking what we don’t reveal

But we are connected past walls we’ve erected

And armies that keep out the things that we feel

And who is this girl, I don’t know right now

But I love her, I love her, I love her I do

Yeah who is this girl, I don’t know right now

But I’m thinking of her in all that I do

Yeah Yeah

Yeah Yeah

Yeah

Yeah Yeah

Yeah Yeah

Someday we’ll find it, ’cause love will remind it

To let down defenses and breathe in the air

And we will remember a kind of September

That’s filled with the things of which we really care

And who is this girl, I don’t know right now

But I love her I love her I love her I do

Yeah who is this girl, I don’t know right now

But I’m thinking of her I think that she’s you

Yeah Yeah

Yeah Yeah

Yeah

Yeah Yeah

Yeah Yeah…

ALL THE DEAD LITTLE PEOPLE

All the dead little people

Do they go upstairs

If they did their best

If they said their prayers

And when they go

Can they see us

Do they even care

Help to guide our way

Keep us from despair

They’re floating along to a spooky song

In the moonlight, it’s okay

But so much is wrong and we know it’s wrong

Can we change it today

Okay

Okay

Floating along to a spooky song

In the moonlight, it’s okay

But so much is wrong and we know it’s wrong

Can we change it today

Okay

Okay

All the dead little people

Can I make it plain

Though we’re all quite strange

One thing’s still the same

We need love, until we find it

Everything’s in pain

‘Til we get that right

Things get so deranged

And we’re floating along to a spooky song

In the moonlight, it’s okay

But so much is wrong and we know it’s wrong

And we can we change it today

It’s okay

It’s okay

All the dead little people

Do they go upstairs

If they did their best

If they said their prayers?

WINDMILLS

When I was young I called your name

Across the moors, across the plains

And we would sit and have some tea

We talked of things we hoped to see

To keep our newborn country free

From things that hold the dreamers down

We spoke of windmills in the night

Against the black and starry sky

And all the people skated by

La la la

The weight of greed came crashing down

Affecting all in every town

It somehow was our price to pay

The criminals were given bail

while all the victims went to jail

Was this the way to shift the power

We dreamed of windmills in the night

Against the black and starry sky

And all the people skated by

Religions terrorized the world

The biggest countries let unfurl

Their sneaky ways to take control

The ‘isms of another time

That never let a natural rhyme

Or reason guide us to those dreams

I dreamed of windmills in the night

Against the black and starry sky

And all the people skated by into another world

The coldest winter on the land

Our newborn country had a plan

To make these worries float away

We built some windmills in the night

Against the dark and hopeless sky

As we the people skated by

Into a brand new world of light

UP ABOVE MY HEAD

Oh I’ve seen a million patterns that I don’t understand

A million visions for the child of man

Up above my head

In dreams you’re always seeing things just out of control

You want to fly upon the wings of your soul

Up above my head

And I’ve seen the wind-tail lashes, lighting flashes, morning changing its hue

For you

‘Cause up where the birds are flying, clouds are crying, everything becomes new

For you

And I’ve seen the red-tailed lashes, finger flashes, people fading from view

For you

‘Cause up where the birds are flying, clouds are crying, everything becomes new

For you

Oh I’ve seen a million patterns that I can’t understand

A million visions for the child of man

Up above my head

Up above my head

Up above my head

Up above my head

RAVENOUS WAYS

When we were small, heard the call of warmth and love

We saw that face in our sky way up above

Yeah we had such ravenous ways for everything

And when we opened our mouths we all could sing

So turn on your ravenous ways

Turn on your ravenous ways

Join the show

Fan your all-consuming flames

Fan your all-consuming flames

Help them grow

Yeah we’re gonna aim for the sky, we don’t aim low

And when we let this thing fly, the world will know

We’ve turned on our ravenous ways

Turned on our ravenous ways

(That’s right)

Yeah we had such ravenous ways for everything

And when we opened our mouths we all could sing

So turn on your ravenous ways

Turn on your ravenous ways

Turn on your ravenous ways

Join the show

Fan your all-consuming flames

Fan your all-consuming flames

Help them grow

Yeah we’re gonna aim for the sky, we don’t aim low

And when we let this thing fly, the world will know

We’ve turned on our ravenous ways

We’ve turned on our ravenous ways

We’ve turned on our ravenous ways

We’ve turned on our ravenous ways

(That’s right)

When we were small, heard the call of warmth and love

NORTHERN SEA

I sailed away from the northern shoreline

Out to the Northern Sea

I sailed away to a world before time

t’see what I should be

Do you think about me my m’lady?

Do you think about me?

Do you think about me my m’lady?

Do you think about me?

I sailed away on the lonely ocean

Just the wind and me

I sailed away till I had the notion

You and I should be

If you think about me m’lady

’Cause I think about you yes I do

and I dream about you m’lady

Do you dream about me

Spirit of God moved across the water

Back when the will was free

Said to that sea “don’t ya think we ought

be all we can be?”

If you’ll think about me m’lady

I will think about you yes I will

and I will dream about you m’lady

if you dream about me

and they danced all night

and their heat brought light

and the light brought day

and the day brought sight

and the things they saw

made them say alright

and all things were born

on that wondrous night.

When I return I will be a new man

new as a man can be

When I return can I be your true man

if you’ll think about me

If you think about me m’lady

’cause I think about you yes I do

and I dream about you m’lady

do you dream about me

If you think about me m’lady

’cause I think about you yes I do

and I dream about you m’lady

do you dream about me

Do you think about me my m’lady?

Do you think about me?
