Lyrics for the album : BLACK MOON

Black Moon
(Keith Emerson/Greg Lake/Carl Palmer)

Every day I see a nwe cloud coming
There's one more hole in space
Every time I walk across the street
I feel the gas blowing in my face
We never learn even deserts burn
And all politicians lie
They don't do nothing till we reach high noon
Black moon

Ain't nobody gonna walk on water
When it falls like acid rain
Nobody gonna fake you out
Every poison stains
We're all struck here right in the middle
We never call the tune
If we don't get active we'll become immune
Black moon

In the night see the red sky burning
There's fire on the mountain
Oil slicks on the sea
The black moon is rising
How long will it be

you take a look around the world
The future never waits
We're skating on the thin ice
And we're in the hands of fate
What we need's a little redirection
To find our blue lagoon
You know it wouldn't come a moment too soon
Black moon

PAPER BLOOD


(Keith Emerson/Greg Lake/Carl Palmer)

Livin' on a razor's edge
Sharper than a knife
Surrender to the power of wedge
Keep running for your life
You don't need no periscope
You won't need second sight
It'll come at you so fast my friend
It's thank you and goodnight

CHORUS
Caught in the river
You can't stop the flood
That's the power of money, paper blood

Ambition flies on silver wings
Searching for a crown
King of kings, they pull the strings
Until they run you down
No matter what you've undergone
The measure of success
Is how much you can charge it on
American Express

CHORUS

You don't need to drive a car
And you don't need a house
And you don't need a guiding star
When living like a mouse
In the presidenttial suite
They'd rather see you burn
Ducking and diving just to make ends meet
To the point of no return

Affairs of the heart
(Greg Lake/Geoff Downes)

She looked at me across the room
Emerging from a silk cocoon
Alone beneath Venetian chandeliers
Against the moon her body rocks
Her eyes were cunning like a fox
The wings of passion fly on all frontiers

>From this fire there's no returning
No escape your heart is burning
Love becomes a lethal weapon
No one is too smart
In affairs of the heart

Now upon the bridge she waits
Dreaming of our tangled fates
Her face was like a ghost with eyes of jade
I fell just like a falling star
A victim of this coup d'etat
I could not see behind this masquerade

Be careful where you start
In affairs of the heart

Sometimes I think I'll never learn
Were all those promises in vain
Do the wings of fire still remain

All is fair in love and war
The tender draw the shortest straw
Like autumn leaves they vanish in the air
Is this the time we say goodbye
I call her room there's no reply
Tonight we end this fleeting love affair

From this fire there's no returning
No escape your heart is burning
Love becomes a lethal weapon
Sharper than a dart
In affairs of the heart

Romeo and juliet
(Prokofiev; Arr. by Keith Emerson)

---Instrumental---
Farwell to arms
(Keith Emerson/Greg Lake)

In this our life on earth
Another dawn we face
Is this the moment of truth
For the whole human race
Is that the last man down
Is that the last life laid to waste
We must find in our hearts
Each and every dream we've misplaced
Before heaven cries tears
On the mountains we climb

CHORUS
Farewell to arms
Rest in peace
May the reign of freedom be released
Farewell to arms
We just can't walk away
We're all sharing this earth at the end of the day

So when the cold winds bite
And when the mad dogs speak
However dark is your night
Just keep turning your cheek
Cause when the last shot's fired
It is then the world will be free
And still we are asking
Just how long it will be
Though we're blown by the crosswinds
We stand like a tree

CHORUS

Down this road we've wandered for so many years
With every step we take
We can tear down all frontiers, make no mistake

changing states
(Keith Emerson)

---Instrumental---

Burning Bridges
(Mark Mancina)

Miles away
The light in the distance looks miles away
Tired of resistance and turned away
Going back to the Holy land
Last night your anger was born again
Carry the torch in your heart
And your anger on the vine
Still buried in your pride

And when the morning sighs
And when the rains fall dry
Scarring the mountainside
They burn the bridges down
And when the laughter dies
Can't you see beyond the lines
Waving the last goodbye
Gonna burn these bridges down

Home again
Marching in circles, we're home again
Carry the torch in your heart
And your anger on the vine
Still buried in your pride
And when the morning sighs
And when the rains fall dry
Scarring the mountainside
They burn the bridges down
And when the laughter dies
Can't you see beyond the lines
Waving the last goodbye
Gonna burn these bridges down

Close to Home

(Keith Emerson)

---Instrumental---

Better Days
(Keith Emerson/Greg Lake)

I was walking on this station
I could see somebody lying on a chair
I went over to him
I said, hey man, what are you doing there
And have you got a smoke
I said you'd better come in out of the rain
Before you get yourself soaked

No one can feel inside
How deep the oceans, heartaches hide

CHORUS
So stand on me, I'll catch you falling
You can stand on me and I'll help you find a way
Stand on me, I can see our ship turning
Stand on me, we're sailing on the wind of better days

And they accuse you when you're over and out
Ulterior motives, that's what it's all about
It's just human nature, they try to make you flinch
But we're takin' the higher ground inch by inch
No one cal feel inside
How deep the oceans, heartaches hide

CHORUS

And if you tumble when the snowflakes fall
(This is a jungle, it's not a waterfall)
From where you're standing you can't get no change
They keep moving the target clean out of range

Foot Prints In the Snow
(Greg Lake)

First time when you looked at me
You tried to hide but I could see
A special beauty in your eyes
Passion flying like a spark
Like an arrow to the mark
I feel it sting my jealousy

Before you know there's footprints in the snow

Desire like a river flows
Where it comes from no one knows
Love just like a flower grows
And then God only knows
It comes down like guillotine

Now I feel the rain
of love torn by a hurricane
One night eclipsed the sun
How deep still waters run

How deep they go like footprints in the snow

Take my love into your brest
Commit my spirit to the test
You wwill see him like a knight
His armour gleams
We'll fly upon his angel's wings
Above the clouds in rainbow rings
We can sail a ship of dreams

CHORUS
If you will take my hand
We can cross this desert made of sand
We can break in through the ice
And feel the wind of paradise
We'll feel it blow our footprints in the snow

Anytime you feel alone
Just raise your hand, pick up the phone
Take in my number, there I'll be
If one day your stars won't shine
I will give you some of mine
Cause they could fall so easily

We both know there's footprints in the snow
