Galley

Ruler of all the castles you keep
Racing car driver lost in your sleep
Don't be afraid, it's only a dream
Don't be afraid, it's only a dream

. . .


Hughes

The Giant's dead, hoorah!
Call the captain today
No need to be alarmed
Everybody get stoned

We have his goddamn head
Hang him up from his hair
We'll make a skipping rope
Leave the rest for a snail

We'll take all his belongings
Clean them, sell them
His castle we will keep
We will sleep

(Free, free)
We're free to do what we want
We're free to say what we say
We're free to do what we want today, yeah

Our dreams have all come true
A life of ease to please our kids
When they come home from school
Jimmy, go out and play
Peace of mind is what you'll find today, today

It's too good to be true
Perhaps we join up the crew
The writings on the wall
Tell your friends free for all
We're glad our freedom's here
Hope that now it's all clear

We'll take all his belongings
Clean them, sell them
His castle we will keep
We will sleep

. . .


Galley-Jones

Some mad day my mind slips away
Bringing thoughts of yesterday
Ahh, Ahh, Ahh

Brown soil sifts through fingers of clay
Modeling thoughts of yesterday
Ahh, Ahh, Ahh
Ahh, Ahh

Love is dying, sighing, crying
After it's over
Looked despaired, she never cared
After it's over
Freedom lasting, love is passing
Now that it's over

Falling leaves, now Autumn is here
Covering memories of last year
Ahh, Ahh, Ahh

Birds fly rest cries life must go on
Future depending on
Ahh, Ahh, Ahh
Ahh, Ahh

Love is dying, sighing, crying
After it's over
Looked despaired, she never cared
After it's over
Freedom lasting, love is passing
Now that it's over

. . .


Hughes

Nancy Gray, I'm sorry
It just didn't go my way
Well I could, it's no good
One day they'll all realize
Until then, bye bye, so long
Someday they'll see where we both belong

Come what may
Nancy, Nancy Gray
I'll find a way
To sing once again, 'til then

Nancy Gray there's one place
I'd be where you are
Where you are, the place is
A place it is not too far
I know how, believe me
I've read in books and things, I've sought it out
I'm just scared to do it, it's wrong

How far is the rainbow and how far is the sky
How far, how far

Come what may
Nancy, Nancy Gray
I'll find a way
To sing once again, 'til then

. . .


Galley-Jones

Verily, Verily I say unto you
And you, and you, and you
A rhyme in time a verse or two
Will make my mind feel blue

Will alter all my life anew
And you, and you, and you
Will alter all my trivial thoughts
And give my mind a view

Verily, Verily I say unto you
And you, and you, and you
Verily, Verily I say unto you
And you, and you, and you

So faster, faster I will run
I'll run, and run, and run
From inteference from my mind
And you, and you, and you

Verily, Verily I say unto you
And you, and you, and you
Verily, Verily I say unto you
And you, and you, and you

So faster, faster I will run
I'll run, and run, and run
From inteference from my mind
And you, and you, and you

. . .


Galley-Jones

God, it's like a true Messiah
Less to do with no desire
How to damp the fire timber
Life is on a golden ember

The rain of fire must stop
Burning lightning salt

You ride a Christian crucifixion
That could be just bloody fiction
Vacillation, degradation
He's the God that proved the nation

The rain of fire must stop
Burning lightning salt

The scholar lips don't know what they're saying
The virgin nuns don't know what they're praying

Saying, praying
Saying, praying

Saying, praying
Saying, praying

. . .


Galley-Jones

I stand with open hand and mind
I stand upon the brink
Of greater things I hope I'll find
Maybe of another kind
I think

I stand with open hand and mind
My eyes can see no wrong
In you I'm being left behind
And will I ever could have be so blind
I think

It's my life, my only life
My life to do as I see fit to do with
It's my life, my only life
My life to do as I see fit to do with

I stand upon an empty plain
A thousand buildings fell and never rose again
I see my future embroidered on the rain
I think

It's my life, my only life
My life to do as I see fit to do with
It's my life, my only life
My life to do as I see fit to do with

It's my life, my only life
My life to do as I see fit to do with

. . .


Hughes

I think to myself; it's only a dream
But, God, the connection is real that brings me here
What did I do to deserve the place that I'm in
Did I sin?

It's so dark down here I can't see a thing
I'm so stiff, so numb, I can't feel a thing
My legs, my hands, my body is so cold
Am I old?

They laugh at each other and wallow about
In the slime of the depths of forgotten meaningless rhymes
Even the quiet of voices of people that heal
Think I'm real

Through shades of depths of madness I hear
The violence of the people that talk without fear
For they know that I've gone
They're glad that I'm not coming back
Am I black?

. . .


Galley-Jones

She dropped you
She flew away
You realize
There's only one way

Peer through tear rimmed slits in your head
Lie down, relax, think what you said
You 'gotta move across the bush
The rut by the dog
Turn on relief giving gas on the floor

She dropped you
She flew away
You realize
There's only one way

Feel a suffocation pulling you down
Silence so loud you can't hear a sound
Shadows, image bugging your mind
Lie down, relax, think what you'll find

She dropped you
She flew away
You realize
There's only one way

. . .


Hughes-Rowley

Under the fields, over the sky
Walking on air, if I could fly
Don't stop me, don't even try
As cause you're on the floor
I'm in the sky
I'm in the sky
I'm in the sky

Wings, carry me away
Wings, take me back to another day

Someone down there can't carry me
I'm laughing at you or laughing at me
You stand on your own, you think you are high
I've got the wings so I could get by
I could get by
I could get by

Wings, carry me away
Wings, take me to another day

There's nowhere that I haven't been
I've even been to see my Queen
They told me that she'd gone away
I hung around 'til Saturday

She came back to my surprise
That hung up look was in her eyes
I looked at her, she looked at me
The only place that we could be together
We could be together
Oh, we could be together
Be together

Wings, carry me away
Wings, take me back to another day
You know where I find it

You know where to catch a party
I think you're going, yeah
And this will be the final day, yeah
No wonder what you want you're goin', yeah

. . .


Galley-Hughes-Jones

Do you feel like putting everything off 'til tomorrow
Perhaps the time will quickly pass way
Your views will change and rearranged
You conscience living, find another day

Do you find your thoughts will make your mind grow stronger
Your memory lingers on in hope to find
Reflections of forgotten love
Was it true or of another kind

(Day) Another day
Sunshine's not a problem
Another day, our bad dreams are forgotten
Troubles rising through another day
Day... (We'll find our way)
Day... (We'll find our way)

Your views will change and rearranged
You conscience living, find another day

(Day) Another day, where sunshine is not a problem
(Day) Another day, our bad dreams are forgotten
Troubles rising through another day
(Day)

Troubles rising through another day
(Day)
Troubles rising through another day

. . .


Rowley

It's your smile, all the while
Keeps me dreaming of today
In your eyes, summer flies
Winter comes and slips away

In my grief filled with dreams
There's a face in a stream
And it seems to be mine

Send me no more letters
And perhaps I might feel better
If you make me no more promises today

Baby, send me no more sorrow
And perhaps I'll see tomorrow
Through a cloud of hazy sadness
All the way
Walk away
Walk away

You're the one who I depended on
To get me through another day
In my mind, all the time
There is nothing I can say
In the back of my mind
Ever faith on our side
And it seems to be fine

Send me no more letters
And perhaps I might feel better
If you make me no more promises today

Baby, send me no more sorrow
And perhaps I'll see tomorrow
Through a cloud of hazy sadness
All the way
Walk away
Walk away

Send me no more letters
And perhaps I might feel better
If you make me no more promises today

Baby, send me no more sorrow
And perhaps I'll see tomorrow
Through a cloud of hazy sadness
All the way
Walk away
Walk away

. . .


Galley

Ruler of all the castles you keep
Racing car driver lost in your sleep
Don't be afraid, it's only a dream
Don't be afraid, it's only a dream
