Lanterns
Killing Joke Lyrics


Equinox sun. Summers of fun
No mortgage repayments to weigh my mind
And if it all fell through tomorrow
Put my pack on my back
And it's home where the lunatics roam
Faith, faith moved a mountain
Where the rivers are so clean
And the consciousness so green
And the luminous folk shine like
Lanterns of hope shine on
Lanterns of hope shine on
Lanterns of hope

Ribbons of wishes, tied to the trees
Hives full of honey, yield to the seed
And if it all fell through tomorrow
Put my pack on my back
And it's home where the lunatics roam
Faith, faith moved a mountain
Where the rivers are so clean
And the consciousness is so green
And the luminous folk shine like
Lanterns of hope shine on
Lanterns of hope shine on
Lanterns of hope shine on
Lanterns of hope

And if it all fell through tomorrow
Put my pack on my back
And it's home where the lunatics roam
Faith, faith moved a mountain
Where the rivers are so clean
And the consciousness is so green
And the luminous folk shine like
Lanterns of hope shine on
Lanterns of hope shine on
Lanterns of hope

Fire, fire light the lantern
When we drink from the streams
And we grow our own greens
And the fences have all been torn down

Lanterns of hope, shine on
Lanterns of hope, shine on
Lanterns of hope, shine on
Lanterns of hope, shine on
Lanterns of hope, shine on
Lanterns of hope, shine on
Lanterns of hope, shine on
Lanterns of hope, shine on

i dont understand why some people consider democracy a weak killing joke record, i love it and cant get enough of it!

Fat Man Jackson

Its badly mixed. But I agree, its a great album, just could have been "cleaner".

Ryan Broome

I agree it's got some great songs. Lanterns 👌

Simone SS

amazing song... I cannot explain why ....but this song really moves me....

Simone SS

All of your replies are quite right. 👍
I was talking musically, btw..
Even if I speak english and I can understand the lyrics ,there's a big difference.

Or hold a revolution for the future of all generations to come. Life is not meant to be wasted on corporate slavery where you get nothing after working yourself to the bone.

Phil Renaud

It speaks to someting you secretly desire........probably a desire to leave the rat race and live a simple life off the land in a cabin with a garden and a warm fire beside a lake or river. My guess.

The Quality of Mercy

I really dont care what people think Democracy is a great Killing Joke album imo :)

Slim Moses

Mystic Aura. Its maybe my favorite

Louise McGee

I met jaz one time during hard times and told him this was my favourite. The song kept me going and I got through those times. Lovely song....always
