Simple Minds

20th Century Promised Land – Simple Minds

Stories came like the wind
Joining every bridge in the wind
Ringing out footsteps
Calling out stell-heels
I give voice
I give breath
Count out evenings and stars
How fast can these things move on
Taking roots back to yourself
And the reason for fear was moving on
And on
Some time
Great times
Troubled time
Fire for the times
Ringing out footsteps
Calling out steel-heels

Promised land
Great times in commotion
Here come every day
It only lasts an hour
Unhappy the land that has no heroes
No! Unhappy the land that needs heroes

And the reason for fear was moving on
The speed of light was moving on
Don’t cry
Tears are only wasted waters
Some say God her only loves the proud
Be damned on luck
But not dishearted
Nothing to prove
And nothing to present
I give voice
I give breath
Catching winds in my hand
My hand

Some times
Great times
Catching wind in my hand
My hand
Some times
Great times
Troubled times
Fire for the times
Ringing out footsteps
Calling out steel-heels

Promised land
Great times in commotion
Here comes every dat
It only lasts an hour
Unhappy the land that has no heroes
No! Unhappy the land that needs heroes

I’ll call you out
I’ll scream you out
And I don’t care if you’re afraid
When city sounds invade the air

Catch the wind in their hands
Promised land
Catch the wind in their hands
Promised lands
Promised lands
Promised lands
Great times in commotion

Naked Eye – Simple Minds

You can come inside
Come into the Naked Eye
My only world falls in again
I see your face fall in again
It’s so dark
I don’t know your name
It’s so dark
And I don’t know your name

Only mirrors lie only mirrors lie now
Only mirrors lie only mirrors lie now
Through the needle’s eye
Through the needle’s eye now
Only mirrors lie
Lie lie

You can come inside
Come into the naked eye
Naked
Naked

I feel so high
Going up on the wall
And you’re down below me
Look all around look all around now
Look all around look all around now

Only mirrors lie only mirrors lie now
Only mirrors lie only mirrors lie now
Through the needle’s eye
Through the needle’s eye now
Only mirrors lie
Lie lie

You can come inside
Come into the naked eye
Naked
Naked

Just wanted a special view
Just me and you
Just just just the two of us
Just two of us
Going up on the wall
Up on the wall
Going up on the wall
Up on the wall
Naked Eye Naked Eye

What do you see
And what’s there to learn
Reading your books
Third diagram
Someone’s in the room down below
Someone someone
Someone below
Insects
Cherries
To the cherries
On the wall
Spider

Kaleidoscope – Simple Minds

See
What so you see
Tell us the things
That circulate round you
Scars
Deep as an ocean
I’ve got some things
I’d like to show you
Friends of mine
Who ask to stay
Well you can turn around
And walk

All things lie in hope
Focusing through
Your human kaleidoscope
One man has a dream
Tells it to me
And I call it fiction
Friends of mine
Who ask to stay
Well they can turn around
And walk
Walk walk
Walk away


Chimes
Rhythms to me
Someone else waits
Behind the curtain
Image
Leave them to me
Destructive virgin
Behind the curtain
Friends of mine
Who ask to stay
You can turn around and
Walk walk walk
Walk walk walk away
Walk walk
Walk away
Walk walk
Walk away
Walk
Walk away
Walk walk away
Away away away

Garden Of Hate – Simple Minds

Oh I only had enough of you
Oh I did not ask for nothing else
But you’ve gone and found a one-way out
I stand here by myself
Oh I see a man he’s got a broken arm
I don’t know if I care
Follow him into the garden of hate
Everybody’s going to be there
It’s been some time since I last saw you
Can somebody here please tell me why
So many things I just don’t understand
No matter how I try
A girl I know got quite cut up one night
I don’t know if I care
She was in my garden of hate
So many others are there

Garden of hate
Ha Haha garden of hate
Garden of hate
Ha haha garden of hate

Simple Minds – Factory

In passage of time
To a cigarette burn
In the book that I read
To the sentence I learn
Up and down
Going round
Going round ’till we drown again
I’m gonna set myself up
I’m gonna up to the top
Up to the top
To the top
I’m going down to the ground
Going round
Till we drown
Going round till we drown again

Factory
Imitation of life
Factory
We all go out to lunch
A certain raion we know
Has left us unaware
Someone else has taken leave
Someone who did care
Elevators just don’t crash
The answer lies within
Elevators Elevators
Answer lies within

To the glittering prize
To the fool in the sky
I’ve got a jewel in my eye
I’m going up
Coming down
Going round
Till we drown
Going round till we drown again

To the centre of the man
Because he had a plan
He had a plan to escape
But now we’ve got it on tape
Going up
Coming down
Going around
Going round till we drown again

Factory
Imitation of life
Factory
We all go out to lunch
A certain raion we know
Has left us unaware
Someone else has taken leave
Someone who did care
Elevators just don’t crash
The answer lies within
Elevators Elevators
Answer lies within

Factory
Going out to lunch
Factory
Going out to lunch

Simple Minds – East At Easter

We go walking, hand in hand
All across the land it’s East At Easter
People walking hand in hand
When ships are moving south it will be East at Easter
We will rock you, rock you little child
We will rock you, rock you little child
All across the land it’s East At Easter
All across the land it’s East At Easter
Things will lighten up the sky, East At Easter
Things will lighten up the sky, East At Easter
We’ll go walking hand in hand
‘Cause all across the land it will be East At Easter
Ah, we will rock you, rock you little child
We will rock you, rock you little child
All across the land it’s East At Easter
When ships go moving south it will be East At Easter

They’re gonna lighten up the sky
They’re gonna lighten up the sky
They’re gonna lighten up the sky
East At Easter

Ah, we’ll go walking hand in hand
We’ll go walking hand in hand, yes
We will rock you, rock you little child
We will rock you, rock you
Rock you little child
They’re gonna lighten up the sky
When they lighten up the sky it will be East At Easter
We will rock you, rock you, rock you

C, Moon Cry Like A Baby – Simple Minds

Cry cry cry
Cry like a baby
“C” Moon “C” Moon
So where do you go, up hi under low
The devil I know said, something is missing
Outside it’s hot, the first of July
And a look in your eye said, something is missing

Midnight, she cried like a baby
“C” Moon “C” Moon “C” Moon
Cry like a baby
Can this be something we can’t understand
Could it be the girl can’t understand

Where will we go, up hi under low
When the devil I know say, something is missing
Sweet angels sing, about the fast place of things
But our children sing, love will conquer anything

Midnight she cried like a baby
“C” Moon “C” Moon “C” Moon
Cry like a baby
Could it be we can’t understand
Can it be we can…

Cry, cry, cry, cry like a baby
Midnight cry like a whisper
Scream like a baby
Could this be something we can’t understand
Cry like a baby
