I Am One

(Alternate (2000/01/07 rant) title/lyrics for I Am One)

 

Alt. Lyrics

across the ages we speak
dying breath and out of reach
we reach for more than we have
two vocal cords
two loud guitars
we reach for more than we have

we speak the dream
we are the screams
forever forever forever

on norse gods we ride
across the waves across the tides
into the ethers we speak this dream we ask for forgiveness
for all the trespasses we incur in the name of rock and roll
rock and roll

shhhhhhhhhhh

into your ears we creep
at night when you sleep
like a vampire going home
we must drill inside this chrome dome

do-do-do, do-do-do, do-do-do, do-do-do, do-do-do

yes, we are with you when you're sleeping
we know when you've been good
and we especially know when you've been bad

into the mouths we ring
into the ears we sing
a gangster on heavy chariots fire
give up the name of jim morrison
ow!
what would jim do?

we are the dream
we speak thusly
we are the mean machines
we are the machines of god

  Normal Lyrics

i am one as you are three
try to find a messiah in your trinity
your city to burn
your city to burn
try to look for something in your city to burn
you'll burn
am i as i seem?
i'm down
down, so down

time is right for a guiding light
try to turn to reasons in your bitter life
your city to burn
your city to burn
try to look for something
in your city to burn, you'll burn

see you, don't you just want to?
see you, i am one
see you, don't you just want to?
see you

see you, don't you just want to?
see you, i am one
see you, don't you just want to?
see you, i am one
