Cruelty of Gravity CD Lyrics

Flying Over You                                                                                                                  listen

 Told me you were born to fly
                And that’s just what you did
                          The night I told you what I really wanna’ do
Words were chosen hastily
             They really didn’t really mean a thing
                         I guess I said enough to set me free

                                                                           I’ll go flying
                                                                                                   Flying over you

The only love I’ll ever show
       And the only love I’ll ever know
              Is the few notes I squeeze out before I die

So know someone, somewhere, somehow
           Cared enough to say something
                    Look up in the night and hear me sing

                                                              I’ll go flying               (we’ll start a whole new story)
                                                                   Flying over you          ( I’ll find a brand new glory)

                                                             I’ll go flying                 (unchained from my obsession)
                                                                 Flying over you          (I’ll see a true reflection)


Sometimes it feels like everything and everyone is wrong
I’ve got to get away, try to find a place where I belong

                                                               I’ll go flying                (the shape of things to come)
                                                                Flying over you        (the shape is everyone)   

                                                              I’ll go flying                 (unchained from my obsession)
                                                               Flying over you          (I’ll see a true reflection)   

                                                            I’ll go flying               (we’ll start a whole new story)
                                                               Flying over you          ( I’ll find a brand new glory)


Norma McCall                                                                      listen

it was just another regulation
Saturday night at the Gas Station
We were hangin’ out
and the lights were shinin’ down
they were better when the night went on

Somebody said there was a party downtown
so we hopped in a car and left very quick
we got there and it was really goin’ on, I know

Lights and colors flashin’ all around
and I found someone there that I really liked
she said, “hey” I said, “Hello”
and then when seeped up into the mellow of another pretty evening        

We got back almost three years later
and i can’t really remember much at all

Please  I said why don’t you call
she said, “My name is Norma McCall”

Call me Norma McCall
Call me Norma McCall
Won’t you Call me Norma McCall
so I can remember what we were doing that night

Call me Norma McCall
won’t you Call me Norma McCall
won’t you Call me Norma McCall
so i can remember what we were doing  that felt so right

wish i had you here right now so i could remember everything again

Call me Norma McCall, won’t you Call me Norma McCall
so i can remember what we were doing that night that felt so right
won’t you Call me Norma McCall
Call me Norma McCall

Say It Like You Said It                                                                                           listen

why don’t you say it like you said it
when you, you used to really seem to mean it, when you
you talked to me so sweet and low

how long can i just keep explainin that this
that you and me, well we been rainin ‘ on it
The word that comes down every day

    Why do you say you love me lightly ?
    Why don’t you say it right tonight ?
    Why don’t you leave ?

what time was it when i was wakin’ up
you never seemed to be a taken by it
You used to tell me it would be all right

And now its not like that at all its like you
you got to prove yourself in power and you,
you rape and skate on every day

        Why don’t you
        Why don’t you 
            Say It Like You Said It Before

why don’t you tell me what you told me
when you used to really kinda mean it
and i sat so long just listening



the space between is gettin wider
and i can’t see any satisfaction comin
i cant see any smiles or tappin’ in the sounds you make

    wasn’t it fun , wasn’t it right ,
    didn’t it last through most every night
    wasn’t it real ? if just for a while
    why can’t we get it back
    i can’t forget it

        Why don’t you say it like you said it before

why don’t you do it like you did it when we
first had fun inside the minute
now these days just seem to drag out

you say its me but i don’t think so
I think, ithink you look at me much different. And I ,
i think you wanted something more than i could ever be

    wasnt it fun, back in the day
    when you were love with me
    don’t go away
     wans’t it nice , being together
    all together never again


Why don’t you say it like you said it before .




 

It’s Waiting Patiently Outside                                                                             listen

i love you,
but i don't know who you are
and I don't know where you came from
I've never really even seen you

I see all the shadows that you leave
They're everywhere around
and they kinda’ make me happy

i love you,  I can't dance , My mind won't let me

     So If you're running in the dawn
     and you can't find another pawn
     We gotta’ get it on right now

I love you, though I've never seen you and I want you so bad

     By the window where the light shines
     All alone in the dark
     Thats the only thing that I can live for right now

I love you, I can't dance , my mind won't let me

     out from the farest reaches of space
     Into a little place
     She's in a PERMANENT MANHATTAN

    By the window where the light shines
     All alone in the dark
     That’s the only thing that I can live for right now

i love you but I've never seen you, who are you ?

You're a face I can't place
distant .  Mountains Trees and Sun
but I'm in love with the one
That I've never seen
 It's waiting patiently outside,  I’ve never seen
 It's waiting somewhere down the road
 A place where you never go,         Outside, outside
 Outside your mind, Out where life is good and fine
                 you might find an answer

The Other Side

Roll me over before its morning
Never thought I’d be leaving tomorrow
Gotta get up and go , I’ve got to get away

Where are all of the old things I left here
If you sold them its all for the better
Just give me a smile and I’ll be on my way

    Cause I’ve done everything
    But I’ve done it all backwards and wrong
    Still I know it’ll be alright on the other side

They showed me photos of Reindeers crossing
Giant boats all stuck in the Ice Age
There’s a promise of new days commin’
Not far away

If you knew what it meant to me darling
You’d be commin along for the ride noow
You’d be packin your bags and we’d be on our way

    Cause I’ve done everything
    But I’ve done it all backwards and wrong
    Still I know it’ll be alright on the other side

The other side is calling out my name
The other side , you’ll see its all the same
If you could only see , just what its done for me
You’d know it’ll be all right on the other side






 

All in ALL

racing home to be alone
the way i want it all to be
there’s only room enough in here for me

i like it lonely
i like it quiet and i need time to write this book

    all in all , love is still all you need
    all in all ,  I don’t need anything
    
unlock the door and make some food
god im in another mood
theres only room enough in here for me

i don’t know anything
i don’t know anyone
please don’t disturb my harvest moon

    all in all , love is still all you need
    all in all ,  I don’t need anything

        I’m a light in a hall,   yes. I‘m always on
        And waiting patiently

I think about it all
And how I misssed out on things
That made the changing hard to come

and then you’re running around
you’ve got no time to sit down
there’s only room enough in here for me

     all in all , love is still all you need
    fortunately , I don’t need anything

    Im happy hereby myself laughing at the world  as it falls into the sun
                         and crying when i see you holding hands


Another Creature (born to ruin Rock’n’Roll)                                            listen

Saw you standing up on the stairs
Seems I’m watching you for years and years and years

But I just seen you , for the very first time
Your melted eyes capsize,  I think they melted mine

    I gotta go wherever you go
    And I wanna see the sun in your eyes Start the grow

Now I got you on my mind
Every day it seems I try so hard to find
A way to see you , a way to win
 Something I could finally make my life begin

    I gotta go wherever you go
    I wanna find the path that you lead through the snow
    Through the lightning and the writing on the wall

Thought I knew you , what did I know ?
Thought we had a thing or too to roll the dough
Now Its over , just barely began
Am I gonna run down this old road again

    I gotta go wherever you go
    And I wanna be around for every single show
    Every show , in the rain and snow

Thought I knew you,  what did I know
Another creature born to ruin rock’n’roll
You crawl on your belly through boneless street
The cities are ruined and theres no place left to eat
    I gotta go wherever you go
    And I wanna be there when your feelings start to show

They’ll start to show someday
 

Selling my Ass

did times get tough
or did i just get lazy
tired of draggin myself to work
you’re not gonna sleep now sellin dreamlife pound for pound
cause i have found a way to make it mine

I’m Sellin MY Ass
out on the boulevard tonight
I’m Sellin my Ass
it my be pretty but it don’t seem right
I’m givin’ it all
to the family of man

and i try my best to be the
boy you want me to be now

Did you go away
or was I just walkin the wrong way
That you left me standin alone
Gets so hard out here to find your way

I’m Sellin my ass
out on the Boulevard tonight
I;m sellin my ass
It may be funny but it don’t seem right
I’m giving it all
for the money that I really need
Im sellin my ass

you might find it just too tough and head back home
but i will never bet it wrong

I;m Sellin my Ass
Out on the boulevard tonight
Im sellin my ass
t may be funny but it don’t seem right

If you ever find a way back home
Im up all night and standin alone



 

Cruel Shades of Blue

tell me why it always rains
when you're thinking of the past
sky darkens stillness reigns  
and you can't seem to make it pass

Fools like us never seem
to find the things we need
always pacing endlessly
on a stark deserted beach

cruel shades of blue

night harbors images
of danger coming near
mysteriously
its the peace that we most fear

in cruel shades of blue

lullibies by an ocean side
and there they are again
making plans for the end of time
and our terrible descents

Oh night of dawning man
like the clockwork of the sea
bring tears and memories
of really being free

in Cruel Shades of Blue


 

Start Over Again

I’m driving round the streets like I can’t find myself
I’m lookin hard but all I found’s another shelf
Far from my home

So if you see me and you wanna’ help me now
You gotta get me out, I gotta leave somehow
Far from my home

You tell me everything is getting better better
It seems that I could never feel much worse about it
Far from my home

So if you see me and you wanna help me out
Please gimmie ticket to another place where I can
Start over again

Start Over Again

    When the light finds you sleeping
    And your eyes start to open again
    See the world in a whole new way
    You got to start over again

Start All Over Again

    When the light’s shining bright
    And its shining in your eyes
    First thing you see is a shiny face
You gotta start all over again

Nothing is gonna keep us from beginning to live
We’re gonna climb out of this little box
We’re gonna start all over again

 

Gotta Get out

i tried all my best to say
just what i wanna say
but over its time you see
i just gotta get out

im tired of your mysteries
ive tried all your histories
now its all over me
and i just gotta get out

ive seen all the things that keep you
happy on the ground
ive hung from your rafters
with only one thing on my mind

you don’t have much to say
your laughing at me today
well keep up your laughing cause
i just gotta get out

you honor your fantasy
by stealing a piece of me
you think you know everything
i know i gotta get out

im leaving it all for you to figure out
I picked up some clues from your practiced little pout
off the ground
i hope it comes true

im not sitting here all alone
im not waiting for you to phone
im not giving you anymore
cause i just gotta get out

not cleaning your saxophone
not washing your monkey bones
not clocking you in today
cause i just gotta get out

im leaving it all for you to figure out
I picked up some clues from your practiced little pout
Now its just time for me to get away
Start over some place , very far away


im hoping it all comes true
im hopping it all comes true for you
i hoping it all knocks down your door

Cause I just gotta get
    I just gotta get
    I just gotta get out.


 

Does It Really Matter ?

did you ever have a day
simply pass away
you talked to no one at all

sweatin’ on the street
Burnin ‘ body heat
You talked to no one at all

I’ve been doin this for a while now now
Keepin quiet all about my break down

did you ever have a night
nothin seemed quite right
you couldn’t sleep much at all

Creakin of the door
Footsteps on the floor
And there was noone at all

    Ive been thinking planing
    reading fantasizing
    trying to find a place where life is wonderful

Does it really matter  ?    
 
        I could die in my sleep tonight
        Never knowing I’d been alive           
                  1000 children have died today
    
Does it really matter ?


You been cryin on the phone
about your guitar tone
will you  ever be a star

You got a new tatoo
It says to screw you too
I guess you feel like you’ve been screwed


    Ive been thinking planing
    reading fantasizing
    trying to find a place where life is wonderful

Then this beast comes out from behind the couch
And says

Does it really matter again and again
Does it really matter

Relax, its not some God-Particle experiment gone haywire.  Its new music by the unsung hero of Hollywood,  Abraham Cloud.   And  I have to ask myself why I can’t get  the song. “Norma McCall”  out of my head.   Somehow, this eccentric Howard Hughes type recluse,  has actually written a hit song.  “Norma McCall” seems to be playing at every underground party in town and now its due to hit I-Tunes .  I guess the rules really have changed in the music biz, cause its been along time since extremely talented fringe artists like this could even get arrested. There's a Milkman waiting in the sky with new cheese for a hungry generation .......
