Do Not Forget Old Friends

Do not forget old friends
you knew long before I met you
the times I know nothing about
being someone
who lives by himself
and only visits you on a raid

Shadow

Shadow, take me down
Shadow, take me down with you
 
For the last time
For the last time
For the last time
For the last time
 
You're in the water
I'm standing on the shore
Still thinking that I hear your voice
 
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
 
For the last time
For the last time
For the last time
For the last time
 
At night I'm driving in your car
Pretending that we'll leave this town
We're watching all the street lights fade
And now you're just a stranger's dream
I took your picture from the frame
And now you're nothing like you seem
Your shadow fell like last night's rain
 
For the last time
For the last time
For the last time
For the last time
 

Still With Me

You tell me that our relationship could not last
Impregnated with arguements and our past
You made my words like the fangs of a snake
I gave all, and all you did freely take
 
So now in my cell I serve my longing time
Longing for those moments with you, sublime
Your fears got the best of you and fled away
To the ignorance and simplicity of yesterday
 
I pray so you may never know of forgotten hurt
Nor the ease of the deep burial in damp dirt
The hate I have had for you is eased by love's quell
It leaves a complex story of love to tell
 
No moment has passed by without a reminder
Another little memory in our love's binder
But tears fall many in hurt and joy each
Both the pit inside, and the sweetness of the peach
 
Now we probably will never touch each other
For the moments we had there will be not another
All that I have left of you is locked in my heart
There it remains still though we are apart
 
When I die and go on and sail the endless sea
I hope our love we had in life is still with me
 

The Cruel Wars

A recruiting sergeant came our way
From an inn near town at the close of day
He said 'My Johnny you're a fine young man
Would you like to march along behind a military band
With a scarlet coat and a fine cocked hat
And a musket at your shoulder,'
The shilling he took and he kissed the book
Oh poor Johnny what'll happen to ya?

The recruiting sergeant marched away
From the Inn near town at the break of day
Johnny came too with half a ring
He was off to be a soldier to go fighting for the King
In a far off war in a far off land
To face the foreign soldier
But how will you fare when there's lead in the air
Oh poor Johnny what'll happen to ya?

Well the sun rose high on a barren land
Where the thin red line made a military stand
There was sling shot, chain shot, grape shot too
Swords and bayonets thrusting through
Poor Johnny fell but the day was won
And the King is grateful to ya
But your soldiering's done and they're sending you home
Oh poor Johnny what'll happen to ya?

They said he was a hero and not to grieve
For the two ruined legs and the empty sleeves
They took him home and they set him down
With a military pension and a medal from the crown
But you haven't an arm, you haven't a leg
The enemy nearly slew ya
You'll have to go out on the streets to beg
Oh poor Johnny what'll happen to ya?

A recruiting sergeant came our way
From the inn near town at the close of day
He said my Johnny you're a fine young man
Would you like to march along behind a military band
With a scarlet coat and a fine cocked hat
And a musket at your shoulder
The shilling he took and he kissed the book
Oh poor Johnny what will happen to ya?

O Polly love, O Polly, the route has now begun
And we must go a-marching to the beating of a drum
Come dress yourself all in your best and come along with me
I'll take you to the cruel wars in High Germany

O Harry, dearest Harry, mind well what I do say
My feet they are so tender and I cannot march away
Besides, my dearest Harry, I am with child by thee
Not fitted for the cruel wars in High Germany

I'll buy you a horse, my love, and on it you shall ride
And all of my delight shall be walking at your side
We'll stop at every alehouse and drink when we are dry
Be true to one another, get married by and by

O cursed be the cruel wars, that ever they should rise
And out of marry England, press many a man likewise
They took her Harry from her, likewise her brothers three
And sent them to the cruel wars in High Germany

Let Them Burn (Parody of Let It Go from Frozen)

The volcano glows red and everyone's dead
Not a body to be seen
A nation of ash and cinders
And it looks like I'm the queen
The flames keep roaring like the furnace that's inside
Couldn't keep it in,
Hell only knows I've tried
 
Don't let them in,
Don't let them see,
Be the good girl
You always have to be,
Conceal, don't feel, don't let them learn,
Well now they've learned!
 
Let them burn, let them burn!
They're no longer my concern!
Let them burn, let them burn!
Time to show the world
It's my turn!
I won't care, how they're going to scream!
Let the fire rage on.
Flames never seemed to bother me.
 
It's funny how this inferno makes everything look bright
And the fear that once controlled me, set everything alight!
It's time to see what I can do,
To test the limits and break through.
No right, no wrong, when it's only me!
So I'm free!
Let them burn, let them burn!
See my fire across the sky!
Let them burn, let them burn!
Like a rocket I can fly!
I won't care, how they're going to scream!
Let the fire rage on.
 
My power surges through the air and all around.
My soul's the engine that will burn this world down to the ground!
And one move sparks ignition of my vengeful wrath!
I'm never going back, the future's all I have!
Let them burn, let them burn!
Raining down Armageddon,
Let them burn, let them burn!
Their precious world is gone!
I won't care, how they're going to scream!
Let the fire rage on.
Flames never seemed to bother me.
