KEVIN COYNE LYRICS - ALBUM: Mansion of Dreams w. the Achim Goettert group - 1993

Vision, Part 1 (Kevin Coyne/Achim Goettert)

Rivers of blood I've walked in miles and miles and miles

Looking everywhere for someone to smile

I keep searching and looking for a home

I'm a dope without any home

But I keep looking

Yes I keep looking (x3)

Yes I keep looking and looking (repeat) (x4)

I keep looking

Gonna tell you what's on my mind

Flying angels, the holy kind

My feet don't even scrape the ground

I'm looking and looking in the lost and found

The lost and found (repeat) (x4)

Keep looking (x3) for higher ground (repeat)

I want to hear that angel sound

Keep looking for higher ground

I want to hear that angel sound

I keep looking and one day I'll find that precious thing called peace of mind

I keep hoping, I keep running, I keep hoping, I keep running

There's no fun in always running (x9)

There's no fun in always running (x4)

I can hear the big thing coming

There's no fun in always running

I can hear the big thing coming

There's no fun in always running

There's no fun (x4)


Shake Before Using (Kevin Coyne/Achim Goettert)

Picking up, picking up the money from the money tree

Grasping out, reaching out a good life for you and me

Digging deep, digging deep into the well of pain and loneliness

Money machine has got me, I'm in a terrible mess

Picking up apples from the tree of happiness

All lights have faded, I guess I'm undressed

Digging in front of the world (x7)

Picking from the tree of happiness

Looking out for perfect bliss

Sometimes I'm in quite a mess

Looking out for perfect bliss

Looking for the tree of happiness

Of happiness (x3)

Searching something (x3)

Looking for the tree of happiness (x4)


Ballad for Kevin (Kevin Coyne/Achim Goettert)

You look for Paradise

You look for sea of perfect blue

And heaven in her eye

The mind wanderer has wandered from the shore

Can't find a puzzle, can't find it no more

He looks in your eyes and guess what he finds

The doors are open (x2)

He keeps on searching, this could be the time

Keeps on searching for perfect peace of mind

The doors are open (x2)

I was wondering which way to go

Has anybody listened to this crazy song?

I've been singing it all my life song

It goes round and round, no-one knows what's in my head

Sometimes it looks as if I should be dead

Doors are closed (x3)

And it's dark in here

The doors are closed and it's dark in here

Does anybody listen? You can see me spinning round

Little fat man on a high tide and he's singing down

Looking for an opening but the doors are closed (x2)

Doors are closed, I've locked them myself

Yes the doors are closed, I've locked them myself

Nobody to blame but myself (x2)

The doors are closed (repeat)

And there's nobody to blame but myself, I put myself upon this big high shelf, I put myself right up there on top of the rock, looking down at the sand and the boiling sea and all the energy was dying inside and the doors were closed, I closed the doors, I closed the doors myself


Hard Ride (Kevin Coyne/Achim Goettert)

Nothing to say (x4)

It's a hard road, a hard road

It will get you in the end

Mama's scream teeth (x2)

Big shiny head, Mama's scream teeth

Big green teeth, please, please

Mama's scream teeth (x3)

Big shiny head, please, please

Spotty dress, spotty dress, in a mess (x3)

I can see right up your dress

Lies are lies, alibis

No more lies (x2)

Lies are lies and alibis

No more lies (x2)

No lies

Mama's scream teeth (x2)

Big shiny head, Mama's scream teeth

Mama's green teeth (x2)

Big shiny head, green teeth

I can see your mouth (x2)

Mama's scream teeth (x2)

Big shiny head, you're screaming right now

Mama's scream teeth (x2)

Big shiny head, I can hear you screaming now

Tie my arms, tie my fingers (x3)

Tie my arms

Tie me up and bound (x4)

Mama's scream teeth, Mama

Hard Ride (encore) (Kevin Coyne/Achim Goettert - 1993) (MANSION OF DREAMS)

It was a mean upset but I feel better now

Mean upset but I feel better now

It was a mean upset but I feel better now (x2)

Feel better now (x2)

There's a spring in my feet, I'm jumping all around (x2)

Spring in my feet, I'm jumping all around

Spring in my feet, spring in my feet

I was feeling kind of weary but I feel better now (x3)

I feel better now (x2)

Feeling kind of weary but I feel better now (x4)

I feel better

Jive and jive and jump, I'm a jumping being (x3)

I'm jumping


Hard Blue Part 1 (Kevin Coyne/Achim Goettert)

You're sleeping now just like a lamb

You've drawn the curtains, folded up your hands

I watch the flowers as they creep up the window

As they creep, as they creep

Under my pillow (x3)

You're sleeping, sugar wouldn't melt in your mouth, neither would butter

You're sleeping now, the toes curled up at the end

I watch the flowers as they grow up the window

The leaves, they crawl

Under my pillow (x3)

You've taken all my money, that's why you're smiling now

Although you're sleeping now, there's all in your head and stomach

I watch the flowers as they grow up the window

And the leaves they crawl

Under my pillow (x3)


Echooos Part 1 (Kevin Coyne/Achim Goettert)

I was born one night about twelve o'clock

I came to this world playing cool guitar

Papa sticked around striking out his chest

He said that little boy looks a mess

He's crazy, crazy, quite crazy, quite crazy

Mama mama mama, where are you now?

Mama mama mama mama, where are you now?

I need some help, I need some somehow

Mama mama mama mama, where are you now?

Crazy, crazy, boy is crazy

There's a big star up high for me (x2)

Silver balloons, dangling down high over clouds, those sparkle of a cloud

Balloons dangling down

He's crazy, what's he talking about? (x2)

He's crazy (x2)

I don't mind, he's crazy, I don't mind


Echooos Part 2 (Kevin Coyne/Achim Goettert)

A letter from Hell on pieces of pink paper (x2)

No stamp on it and no adress (x4)

A letter from Hell on pieces of pink paper (x2)

I got a letter from Hell and when I opened it I got a shock

There was no adress to write back to

A letter from Hell (x2)

Somebody's monkeying around with my mind (x6)

A letter from Hell on pink paper

A letter from Hell

A letter from Hell on pieces of pink paper, no adress

No-one to to write back to

This must be Hell, not so bad really, it's a bit dark, it's okay


Ein Muhistein im Kopf Herum (Kevin Coyne/Achim Goettert)

I lost, I lost the rythm, I lost, I lost the rhyme (x2)

I lost it but I want it back (x2)

??

I lost it but I want it back

I lost, I lost the rythm, I lost, I lost the rhyme (x4)

I lost, I lost the rythm, I lost, I lost the rhyme (x4)

I lost the rhyme (x3)

I want it back (repeat)

Grab it back

I want it back (repeat)

Gonna grab it back

I want to know if you know my Jesus

I want to know if you know his name

Anybody here know my Jesus

You got to get some good religion (x3)

You got to get some good religion (x3)

Any Day, Any Way (Kevin Coyne/Achim Goettert)

I'm in Heaven and everybody's there

Dancing, jumping, jumping around, dancing right on the air

Ooh ooh ooh everybody's having fun (x2)

There's a party up there, they're dancing on air

You can see them scream and swear

You can see them every night

They're gonna put out the light

Ooh ooh ooh having fun, (x3)

Having a party up there

Ooh ooh ooh having fun, (x3)

Having a party up there

Anyday-Anyway (Encore) (Kevin Coyne/Achim Goettert - 1999) OPERA FOR SYD

Here we go once again, a little ?? with nothing my friend, we're going to dance, we're going to sing, we're going to go like birds on wing, some of us will go up, some of us will go down, some of us will go up, some of us will go down, what will you do David? You'll go up. Alright!

You go down (repeat)

Last night, I let my bones grow loose

I went up and down like a crazy moose

I said "You go down", you said "No, I'll go down", you said "You go down", I said "No, I'll go down", you said "You go down", you said "I'll go down", I said "You go down", you said "I'll go down"

Last night, I had a beautiful dream

Oh do you know last night, last night, I had a beautiful dream

I was, I was moving on up

I was flying higher higher higher than I ever done before

Oh last night I had a beautiful dream

Yes last night, I had a beautiful dream

I was going up into the blue

I was hand in hand with you

I was going up into the blue

I was hand in hand with you

Going up (repeat)


Hard Blue Part 2 (Kevin Coyne/Achim Goettert)

Ah happy again! Like a little bird. Up and down and in the ?? and back again. But now I feel good and happy, free in the air. I can fly anywhere.

Somebody told me something boring today

They said all your pain is just gone away

But I don't what, no I don't want that

I need my stress and strain

Ah ah

Somebody told me today that Heaven is right here

I said I don't want it, I'm not finished with the pain

I'm a little confused but I feel I'm right

I can wait for ever in the end

Somebody told me Heaven's right here

Just open your arms, it's right here

But I'm not sure that I want it, not sure that I need it

I prefer my stress and strain


Vision, Part 2 (Kevin Coyne/Achim Goettert)

Wheels go full circle, ??

Slightly happy, slighlty glowing

A happy little man

I can see it's easy and now it's not so hard

When you're over fifty, you play the big trump card

I feel good (x5)

?? houses, houses of repute, ill repute

I worried, I worried a million times and more to boot

But there's something on my mind right now

I feel like dancing

Oh I feel good (x5)

Oh you feel good, I feel good


Jumping (encore) (Kevin Coyne/Achim Goettert)

Sweet bells ringing always singing in my lonely head (x2)

People talking, footsteps walking, am I alive or dead?

Sweet bells singing, voices singing in my lonely head

Sweet voices singing, voices ringing in my lonely head

Sweet voices singing, joy bells ringing in my lonely head

Alleluia, Alleluia, am I alive or dead?

Sweet voices, sweet voices in my lonely head

Sweet voices, sweet voices, don't go away (x2)

My lonely head

Yes there's sweet voices singing and joy bells ringing in my lonely head (x2)

Sweet voices singing, joy bells ringing, am I alive or am I dead?

Sweet voices singing, joy bells ringing

Voices in my head (x3)
