Here comes Satan, prince of the power of the air,
He's gonna make you a law unto yourself, gonna build a bird's nest in your hair.
He's gonna deaden your conscience 'til you worship the work of your own hands,
You'll be serving strangers in a strange, forsaken land.

Hi NC, where you been?

They said it was the land of milk and honey
Now they say it's the land of money
Who ever thought they could ever make that stick
It's unbelievable you can get this rich this quick

(Hi JB; have been, and until tomorrow still am, in beautiful northern California. It's 7.30am here and already warm and sunny, so I'm off out to make the most of my last day. I'll try to bring some sun back with me!)

[You lucky, lucky........It's a balmy 14° here - lots of sun, it's heat we need! Enjoy the time you have left and safe return.]

The buyin' power of the proletariat's gone down
Money's gettin' shallow and weak

And the National Bank at a profit sells road maps for the soul
To the old folks home and the college

I'm gonna have to go to college

Twenty years of schoolin'
And they put you on the day shift
Look out kid
They keep it all hid

Meet me at the bottom, don't lag behind
Bring me my boots and shoes
You can hang back or fight your best on the front line
Sing a little bit of these workingman's blues

Yes, and I'll go last
Then time will tell just who has fell
And who's been left behind
When you go your way and I go mine

But I'll see you in the sky above
In the tall grass, in the ones I love
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go

Babyshambler says:
Yeah, today has been a sad ol' lonesome day
I'm just sittin' here thinking
With my mind a million miles away

(Happy Birthday Bob. Another year rolled around!)

As I travel down life's pathway,
Know not what the years may hold.
As I ponder, hopes grow fonder,
Precious memories flood my soul

(And happy birthday to this thread too - one year old today! Another winner from KO73.)

You know the song in my heart
In the turning of twilight
In the shadows of moonlight
You can show me a new place to start

Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, in the beginning
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, long time ago.

He saw an animal as smooth as glass
Slithering his way through the grass
Saw him dissappear by a tree near a lake .....

Two by two, they step in the dark

Well, they're living in a happy harmony
Tweedle-dee Dum and Tweedle-dee Dee
They're one day older and a dollar short
They've got a parade permit and a police escort

Babyshambler says:
Though neither of them are to be what they claim
If you're lookin' to get silly
You better go back to from where you came
Because the cops don't need you
And man they expect the same

Johnny Bee says:
I'm just average, common too
I'm just like him, the same as you
I'm everybody's brother and son
I ain't different than anyone
It ain't no use a-talking to me
It's just the same as talking to you.

Posted on 26 May 2012 08:53:19 BDT
ain't talkin', just walkin'
through the world mysterious and vague
heart burnin', still yearnin'
walkin' through the cities of plague

well the whole world is filled with speculation
the whole wide world which people say is round,
they will tear your mind away from contemplation
they will jump on your misfortune when you're down

(god bless you Nocheese for the shout out - I continue to use this thread as a an i (dylan) ching - randomly selcting a page and a posting, and then living that day by the precepts of the great Bob - er..I don't really but its tempting)

nocheese says:
Feel bad this morning, ain't got no home.
No use in worrying, 'cause the world gone wrong,
I can't be good no more, once like I did before.
I can't be good, baby,
Honey, because the world's gone wrong.

(Interesting idea KO, who knows where that could lead..)

Johnny Bee says:
I've seen love go by my door
It's never been this close before
Never been so easy or so slow
I've been shooting in the dark too long
When something not right it's wrong
Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go.

People disagreeing everywhere you look
Makes you wanna stop and read a book.
Why only yesterday I saw somebody on the street
That was really shook.
But this ol' river keeps on rollin' though
No matter what gets in the way and which way the wind does blow
And as long as it does I'll just sit here
And watch the river flow.

Rabbit runnin' down across the road
Underneath the bridge where the water flowed through

The bridge that you travel on goes to the Babylon girl
With the rose in her hair

Suddenly I turned around and she was standin' there
With silver bracelets on her wrists and flowers in her hair.
She walked up to me so gracefully and took my crown of thorns.
"Come in," she said,
"I'll give you shelter from the storm."
