Mumford and Sons - Roll away your stone

Posted by Pelgrim on 4th January 2011

Roll away your stone, I’ll roll away mine
Together we can see what we will find
Don’t leave me alone at this time,
For I’m afraid of what I will discover inside

Cause you told me that I would find a hole,
Within the fragile substance of my soul
And I have filled this void with things unreal,
And all the while my character it steals

Darkness is a harsh term don’t you think?
And yet it dominates the things I see

It seems that all my bridges have been burned,
But you say that’s exactly how this grace thing works
It’s not the long walk home that will change this heart,
But the welcome I receive with the restart

Darkness is a harsh term don’t you think?
And yet it dominates the things I see
Darkness is a harsh term don’t you think?
And yet it dominates the things I’ve seen

Stars hide your fires,
These here are my desires
And I will give them up to you this time around
And so, I’ll be found with my stake stuck in this ground
Marking the territory of this newly impassioned soul

hide your fires,
These here are my desires
And I won’t give them up to you this time around
And so, I’ll be found with my stake stuck in this ground
Marking the territory of this newly impassioned soul

But you, you’ve gone too far this time
You have neither reason nor rhyme
With which to take this soul that is so rightfully mine

Michael Aaron - this is my soul

Posted by Pelgrim on 9th September 2010

I’m falling, I’m calling, less and less give a damn
Dont ask, dont tell, but I’m in hell
Time slips like mercury, rise and fall with the day
No way, not now, I don’t know how To be
moments, to be right here
To be, oh, to be
Oh, to be

Take time, take pain - don’ t distill anything
Too much, too far, could leave a scar
Follow my path, blur the lens, dim the lights
I trip, I fall, I’d surrender all
To be moments, (not an abstract)
to be right here (into nothing I know)
To say this is my soul

The dust I will become (this is my soul)
The pull of a dying sun (this is my soul)
The fear of letting go of all that I know
This is my soul this is my soul

No distance, no conscience, no metaphors tucked away
I’m played out, laid out, I’ve run aground
Its only the loneliness keeps the prisoner from sleep
In my heart, in my head, the skin I would shed
To be moments, (not an abstract)
to be right here (into nothing I know)
To say this is my soul

The dust I will become (this is my soul)
The pull of a dying sun (this is my soul)
The fear of letting go of all that I know
This is my soul
The pulsing in the blood (this is my soul)
The desert and the flood (this is my soul)
The hope I cant let go
This is my soul, this is my soul
This is my soul

Operation Spirit

Posted by Pelgrim on 2nd November 2006

“Operation Spirit (The Tyranny Of Tradition)” - live

Heard a lot of talk about the ocean
Heard a lot of talk about the sea
Heard a lot of talk about a lot of things
Never meant that much to me

Heard a lot of talk about my spirit
Heard a lot of talk about my soul
But I decided that anxiety and pain
Were better friends
So I let it go

Did you let it go?
Let’s get it back
Let’s get it back together

Heard a lot of talk about this Jesus
A man of love, and a man of strength
But what a man was two thousand years ago
means nothing at all to me today

He could have been telling me about my
higher self
But he only lives inside my prayer
So what he was may have been beautiful
But the pain is right now
And right here

Let it go!
Let it go!
Let it go, my friend
And let’s get it back
Let’s get it back together

Fish - Vigil in a wilderness of mirrors

Posted by admin on 14th April 2006

Listen to me just hear me out, if I could have your attention
just quieten down for a voice in the crowd.
I get so confused I don’t understand
I know you feel the same way you’ve always wanted to say
but you don’t get the chance, just a voice in the crowd.

I don’t know the score anymore; it’s not clear anymore
I can’t tell right from wrong anymore; I just don’t understand.
I was sitting here thinking of exchanging a new world for old
like changing channels on the tv, or the dirt we stand in to gold.

When I was young, my father told me just the bad guys die
at the time just a little white lie
it was one of the first but it hurt me the most
and the truth stung like tears in my eye
that even the good guys must die
there’s no reasoning no crimes and I never knew why
even now it still makes me cry.

If there’s somebody up there could they throw me down a line
just a little helping hand just a little understanding
just some answers to the questions that surround me now.
If there’s somebody up there could they throw me down a line
just a little guiding light to tell wrong from right
just some answers to the questions that I’m asking you
I keep a vigil in a wilderness of mirrors
where nothing here is ever what it seems
you stand so close but you never understand it
for all that we see is not what it seems, am I blind?

And you sit there and talk revolution
but can you tell me just who’s in command?
when you tell me the forces we are fighting
then I’ll gladly join and make plans
but for now only our t-shirts cry freedom
and our voices are gagged by our greed
our minds are harnessed by knowledge
by the hill and the will to succeed
and if that’s not what you believe
would you let me know I’m not standing alone
that I’m not just a voice in the crowd

If there’s somebody up there could they throw me down a line
just a little helping hand just a little understanding
just a little understanding to the questions that I’m asking you
If there’s somebody up there could they throw me down a line
just a little guiding light to tell wrong from right
just some answers to the questions that I’m asking you
I’ll keep a vigil in a wilderness of mirrors
where nothing here is ever what it seems
I’m scared to shout in case I draw attention from the powers
that preside over our minds and our lives
when they find what I want is the deadliest weapon, that is truth
Day by day it’s getting louder
and day by day it’s getting stronger
but when I can’t scream no more and I need reassurance,
I listen to the crowd.

(And the boy stood, and stared at the hill. And the hill stared back)
