A Funk Odyssey

Feel so good
Little L
You give me something
Corner of the earth
Love foolosophy
Stop don't panic
Black crow
Main vein
Twenty zero one
Picture of my life

 

::Feel so good::

Feels good
I'm stranded on a spaceship hideaway
And something makes me think I'm here to stay
I'm so happy where I am

Feels good
I've journeyed to the other atmosphere
And every breath I take just makes it clear
I'm holding heaven in my hands
It's automatic baby and it feels so good

Feels good
These extra-sensory sensations
Are causing me some complications
Electrostatic information

Feels good
I'm playing with a pleasure trafficker
Arriving soon intergalactica
I'm holding heaven in my hands
It's automatic baby and it feels good

Feels good
Feels so good


::Little L::

There you were freaking out,
Trying to get your head around the fact that me and you and love is 
dead
See how I'm trippin out
'cos you can't decide what you really want from me

Why does it have to be like this?
I can never tell
You make me love you, love you baby
With a Little L

There you were shouting out
Cranking up your altercations, getting upset in your desperation
Screaming and hollering
How could this love become so paper thin?

You're playing so hard to get
You're making me sweat just to hold your attention
I can't give you nothing more
If you ain't givin' nothing to me

So you make me love you, love you baby


::You give me something::

When I met you, you were so unique
Had a little thing I'd love to keep
Every movement carried so much mystique
I knew right then I'd carry on, to you I knew my heart belonged
You, you give me something
Something that nobody else can give
See my heart, has started thumpin'
You're the one I truly know I dig

Like the sunbeams from a perfect summer's day
Heaven only seems a step away
When I'm with you, I just celebrate
I'm hoping my message gets through
There's never been someone like you

I had nobody, on you I would lean
Cos you got these little things that
I know I've never seen

You, you give me something
Something that nobody else has got
And this love, that I've been wanting
Oh baby's turning out too fast to stop

You, you give me something
Something that nobody else can give
See my heart has started thumpin'
You're the one I truly know I dig


::Corner of the earth::

Little darlin' don't you see the sun is shining
just for you, only today
If you hurry you can get a ray on you, come with me, just to play
Like every humming bird and bumblebee
Every sunflower, cloud and every tree
I feel so much a part of this
Nature's got me high and it's beautiful
I'm with this deep eternal universe
From death until rebirth

This corner of the earth is like me in many ways
I can sit for hours here and watch the emerald feathers play
On the face of this I'm blessed
When the sunlight comes for free
I know this corner of the earth it smiles at me
So inspired of that there's nothing left to do or say
Think I'll dream, 'til the stars shine


The wind it whispers and the clouds don't seem to care
And I know inside, that it's all mine
It's the chorus of the breakin' dawn
The mist that comes before the sun is born
To a hazy afternoon in May
Nature's got me high and it's so beautiful
I'm with this deep eternal universe from death until rebirth

chorus
You know that this corner of the earth is like me in many ways
I can sit for hours here and watch the emerald feathers play
On the face of it I'm blessed
When the sunlight comes for free
I know this corner of the earth it smiles at me x5

This corner of the earth, is like me in many ways
I can sit for hours here and watch the emerald feathers play
When the sunlight comes for free
I know the corner of this earth it smiles at me


::Love foolosophy::

My nerves are jangling with these sweet sensations
Baby Baby, looks like a superstar
I'd like a promise of love and patience
What am I to do? How am I to know?
Who you are

She shimmers like a California sunset
Honey, honey glitters but theres no gold
She carries sweetly infectious magic formulas
I'm so delirious, is she that serious?
Is she bringing me on, I've been waiting so long


And this love, Fool, osophy is killing
Previous illusions that
I had in my mind about you
Seems so true, all the lies you're telling
Tragically compelling and
My love it means nothing to you
So maybe I'm still a love Fool

I don't want to be a love Fool
I don't want the world I want you
But don't let me be your love Fool

::Stop don't panic::

My head's under pressure baby
Life's the same
It's a suicidal incubator that's killing my brain
There must be some sonic infiltrator making the strain
See I'm a high-pressure operator
In case the same

Stop don't panic, it's just a thing I do
Its not so tragic, nothing to hold on to
I'm like a tiger in a cage so I'm afraid
How do I stop this crazy rage
I'm not so cool about my own route
I'm gonna hit my switch and fly through

Stop, don't panic, it's just a thing I do
Its not, so tragic, nothing to hang on to
Stop don't panic, it's just a thing I do
It's not so tragic, nothing to hang on to
Something I hang on to

It's just a thing I do
Nothing to hang on to
Stop, It's just a thing I do
Nothing to hang on to
It's just a thing I do
Nothing to hang on to


::Black crow::

He sees the stormy anger of the world
And wants no part of it at all
And as the weeping leaves of Autumn curl
He feels the savage winter call
See far below the dust of conflict settles on the hill
Where there was no escape before
And as he spreads his wings and soars up to another level
He brings the icy prophecies of war

Black crow, black crow, tell me where you really go
When you fly into the sunset, high in evening sky,
Black crow, black crow, tell me what you really know
Will we flourish in this hurricane, or will we fall and die?

While children lose their souls and so much more
To ragged armies of the field
A vicious fanfare cries appeasing hungry savages
To trigger that their fate is surely sealed
I wonder if that black crow sleeps as day beckons the night
Or if he even sleeps at all
I wonder what he thinks of all the human traffic passing far below
That's sturggled on the road for so, so long


::Main vein::

What are you going to do to make me hate me
I can't see how you can this time
A fistful of lies and a verbal decimation
It's so sad but keep on trying
I got no chains or fancy aspirations
But I've still got a losing streak
I don't need praise or instand admiration
It takes more than you to make me weak

What are you going to do to stop me this time baby
You being trying to funk around my mind lately

Well I'm getting so sick and tired of
Hearing about it
Like I'm not the man and I don't exist
You wanna know about this and you wanna
Know things about me
But what you're saying always has a vicious poison twist

Why do you do it to me
Why do you do it to me
You're messing with my mind

I'm breaking out, I'm breaking out
I'm flying higher than a pig in space
And they've been so blind, they've been so blind

I was born in '69
Amd I'm telling the world
But they don't wanna know about me
No no no

I wanted just to do my thing
I wanted just to make my life
Have that swing and Ooo feel so good
But all they wanna do is mess with my mind


::Twenty zero one::

2001 - Where do I belong
I got my mind but I don't know where my head has gone

2001 - Baby where you been
It's pornographic, Internet, traffic on the screen

2001 - She's just a maniac
It's not for me but my baby really needs a crack

2001 - Don't want the sex to stop
I took a pill now it's killing me to keep it up

2001 - I know what's goin' on
You wanna take my soul and change it for another one

2001 - Those liquid crystal eyes, they really suit you honey
Let me get them in your size

2001 - By 2032 you can be me, and with a little luck
I can be you

2001 - Let me bless you son
Help you believe with my semi-automatic gun


::Picture of my life::

I never had a dream that I could follow through
Only tears left to stain, dry my eyes once again
I don't know who I am, or what I'm gonna do
Been so long I've been hopelessly confused
This can never really end, its infinitely sad
Can someone tell me when
Something good became so bad
So if you have a cure
To me would you please send
A picture of my life
With a letter telling how
it should really be instead

The precipice is there
But will I ever dare
Throw myself in the sky, so at last I can die
See I've become a man
Who holds nothing too dear
Who will mind if I just disappear
This can never really end, it's infinitely sad
Can someone tell me when
Something good became so bad
So if you have a cure
To me would you please send
A picture of my life
With a letter telling how
it should really be instead
