Some wise men knew it from the start provoke their nature to compete Emotions running out of bleach but yet the tribe is safe and sound The distance is becoming so profound while abstinence is what they teach They fold their hands, starting to frown so afraid of what's about to come
I hear your voice a-calling so far away it's hard to stand these days And reason's gone while I got stuck in this sad place All my thoughts made of perfumed haze It's never been easy, now I can tell I screwed it all when my mind got lost in the purple skies And the essence of love turned into fantasy that wisdom can't be retrieved just when you leave me hangin' on the wire Feel like a fool, but there is no use to hide my thoughts need to be purified I lost myself, becoming such a disgrace Can't find the time to rest my head And I'm becoming slave to all my strange desire You were like my sunlight babe, please don't take that away from me Guess I won't get along without your soothing smile Just one little favor, this will be all I ask of you to forget all my woes and lay with you in a blazing light I've been creeping and crawling through these nights My brain and eyes been washed away from time while I came down a long way, a long way to this Went through all the years so full of pain
She's been awake for seven days and nights Torn is her shadow on the ceiling She got trapped in the lair of that demon and it took her too long just to believe it She tied herself to his rotten heart didn't sense that he'd cause her heart to bleed before he took his heavy toll on her fragile mind Would never stop to mistreat her Then no matter what she did, would be deceit just to herself A blurry vision's pouring down to her, how to escape from this living in hell It was in vain and all to regret how that lady in rags fell for the devil in disguise Back in her daze so full of love and of laughter she had been paralyzed While she needs to get away from him since she grew so very tired of it Having seen her friends getting soaked in her misery Needs to leave them all behind And a sweet memory sustained she'll keep it trembling in insanity May find a cure for this, but one day depends on what she'll decide In a blue dream I've seen her fleeing from him but then she might just slip away and fall into a deep and narcotic sleep Might never wake up again All the hellhounds sing her name: "Oh Mary" Now look at all that you could have had and you're still haunted by his hollow embrace You may be consumed by fear Out of the blue right into the black you may be swallowed by fear
Thirsty Moon 05:39
A woman beneath this thirsty moon she's been my vision of delight Her pictures spinning through my head to set a fire through the night But what am I supposed to do about it these restless waters running dry Stared at this scene, not knowing what it means until she slowly faded out of sight All the words were dropping out of line It feels so lonely all the time getting lost within our dream She said there ain't much to worry about and if I do then I should wonder why Need to get rid of all my naive foolishness see that to love it still means to fight Though it all feels so forlorn now The myth that I came to repent is waiting just to be reborn and together we'll be once again I bet I'll meet you in the end Bound to this selfish old moon whose wailing winds won't lead me to my bride When all the pain's been washed away by silent rain I know we'll end up all our strife and may love again
You've been lurkin' on the outside Seen you hangin' around until it grew too cold for you So desperately you tried to get inside and so hard you wanted to break through While it wraps you up in its entire darkness I know it's goin' to blacken all your virgin-white soul So watch out But don't get lost in isolation I see you drew a pretty odd fate Guess you've been meant to lose all your purpose in this profanity Some day might fall down to your knees and pray But why do you pray now when there's nobody who's ever goin' to help you out of this mess Hey please don't let it all go astray Now take this chance my wingless butterfly for one last time you'll need to try to kiss the stars and hit the sky You ain't got much left to sacrifice I've seen the sungod's smile upon you Yeah you might be a morning star though sooner or later you'll need to wake up my friend and realize just who you are Their thoughts won't bend, your words collide I hope one day they will obtain insight I always knew you'd be just fine my babe We're gonna meet on the other side
Ever since I've been around their foolish rites been dragging me down Had to abandon my roots to be relieved for a while They groom this valley of sadness where rivers flow to the lake of tears I've walked the path of destitution till the point where I couldn't make it anymore No, I can't go on I've seen this distant world gazing through the clouds Ask you to tell me what this is all about I rode my wooden horse through the crimson night Creatures of heaven, once they have crossed my mind but soon they vanished, my passage has been denied Said I was too far out, a crazy child And I've been roaming everywhere on my quest just to find some relief While that key to happiness can't be found not here nor anywhere Seen love's great mystery revolving all around Want you to take me in your arms Salvation will be found Salvation will be found, the answer is hidden on the inside And I've been roaming everywhere on my quest just to find some relief While that key to happiness can't be found not here nor anywhere Guess I can't be spared from all the things that I've known And they keep on telling me there's so much more that I´ll have to bear I've seen you stumbling backwards and losing your faith but maybe you found a glimpse of comfort in oblivion Seems I had to take the hard way to remain seeking for as long as I'll walk this ground And I've been shivering silently, forced to leave this temple of infancy with all the answers locked down deep inside of me, waiting for release Then someday I might realize that there'll be no saviour, no angel of destiny and maybe once might be satisfied or I'll be wandering endlessly I've lend these broken wings to carry me on through the raging depths of infinity right unto the day I'll die and then return to where it all began And when they come to bury me, I'll be seeing it through Will all my bitterness fade away if I'll be honest to myself Salvation will be found, the answer's locked within ourselves
Goin' down to George's where you've just been to see if you've been boogie-in' ah you know what I mean My left leg's draggin', my right leg's limp, my head's so wavy and I can't feel it I got to see you baby, you'll be alright I wanna boogie baby, boogie tonight Well old George's boogie-in' He's been a-boogie-in' with you I wanna boogie with you baby I wanna boogie all night long ----------------------------------------------- new lines by Peters I need to move on and shake off that dusty broom I really need to see you to end my blues ----------------------------------------------- I wanna see you baby and we'll be alright I only want to boogie, boogie tonight ----------------------------------------------- new verses by Peters I've seen you coming through the mist with eyes that shine like amethysts You've been resting at the shores of bliss, but you've never been kissed I say you've never been kissed by the way I do Now watch out babe 'cause here I'm coming, my head and heart in a restless humming No I can't stand still until I'll make it through to you and sweet love is what I'll do to you We'll be raving every night and day on our way through the wilderness It has been so long, I've been craving for your kiss
Up to the mystic mountain through mud and black mist I'll ride Travel through my mind's eye to reveal their lies But I can't see, no I can't see the light I beg all the seers to carry me While this old world dies right before your eyes But you refuse to see it Refuse to hear her cries But I can't see, no I can't see the light I beg all the seers to carry me back to life I can't you see the light Gotta open up my mind's eye Well I can't see the light While you don't want to

"Back To Life" was actually the very first song that I wrote for SBE, while "Singata" was the very first jam but a song that we already played in Terraplane. This version of "Back To Life" was part of the Planet Fuzz webzine sampler "Cowbells & Cobwebs" in 2010 and recorded by Richard Behrens at his brandnew Big Snuff Studio at that time in Berlin.
