Funky Squaredance
Phoenix Lyrics


Hopeful days and stormy nights
I ain't got much to win, not much to lose
Under the burden of my loneliness
It feels so hard to win, so hard to lose
I won't enjoy my collection of stamps
When I'm six feet under the ground

Lonely streets and dusty roads
Lord it's a long way to go back home
Under the burden of your heart of stone
You shrug your shoulders as I decompose
Please keep a eye on those red haired boys
Someday they'll play drum with my shinbones
Now your chewing-gum on my coffin
Take me where I long to be

I can't believe that you want me to wear
The evening tails that will fit my corpse
I don't need a tuxedo
There's no bouncer in the after world
I only just left my dying bed and
Your making curtains out of my shroud
Don't you dig my grave with some excavator
Use a blood stained sword and a snow-white horse, please

A last ride in the city's hearse
Few miles away from heaven above
A few more minutes 'till they bury me
A few more weeks 'till worms lick my bones
I won't enjoy my collection of stamps
When I'm five feet under the ground
Stormy days and lonely nights
Lord it's a long way to go back home

dave rumbear

Kev Gimenez

one of the greatest songs i've heard in a long long time

Marc-Antoine GENGE

Dans ce titre il y a tout. Ce titre et même tout l’album est étlétique. On part du Punk au Punk Rock, du Rock au rock Californien, du Hard Rock au Heavy Metal...Bref pour dire que je suis depuis 50 ans un inconditionnelle de ces lettres de noblesses. Autrement dit PHOENIX a le respect de tout. Un Grand Groupe avant-gardiste dans les grandes ligne. MERCI PHOENIX

Starkiller

Oakshield

Warper
