gods' gift Heaven's Scent

a child was born in this world today, not one of us could turn her away oh so lovely - Pandora
she was a gift to Epimetheus the brother of Prometheus made by Zeus
and Hephaistos to punish every one of us - for stealing the red
flower power - oh, Pandora

although her face was beauteous the other side from hideous still she was perfidious, inquisitive and curious, demi-god Pandora
fate was written on a star the night she unleashed spite by opening the box and we're still going through,
moral de-tox, now there's anarchy in the co.uk

hope - please forgive me when i lose you
and- quickly catch me when i stumble
hope - free my heart because i've read that
when fear splits apart revealing love then the paper tigers & false
dragon fly away

now i believe in miracles, divinitory oracles , rune stones,
wishing-bones, you couldn't call me cinical - or skeptical, oh no no
cards and coins lie on my bed spread, i've never been a renegade despite
what all the teachers said - but institutional manacles corode my soul - yeah, they erode my soul

hope - please forgive me when i lose you
and- please excuse me when i stumble
now - let us quickly kiss and make up our bed

hope was born in the world today, pestilence and rage were blown away by the west wind - Zephyrus
in the dimmest light shadows loom so large, dark clouds of fear roll over the sunrise and obscure the way
things are - ah, but we have the Star of

Hope - please forgive me when i lose you
and- safely catch me when i stumble
now - let us quickly kiss and make up our bed

Fun @ First

well aint it a funny thing, the devil's come to play now my angel's gone away
and aint it a typical thing, he's always time for me be it nightfall or day oh
he's slipped a familiar ring onto these idle hands of mine so i will do his bidding
and he's made me head of marketing i'm getting people buying real estate in old church buildings

i think it's an indicative thing, that i'm moving stock and shares every time that the phone rings
it's not that i'm a lazy thing but i only get up to get down in the evening
it's now a slightly worrying thing that i used to do coke now coke does me
ah but while i bring the dollar in, the man is moving me higher up and off the tree

"this is the way" he says, "no greater pleasure than this can be found
don't question" he says

"we gotta down-size the water-ways to let the money flow
all the media players, and modern soothsayers invite us in
to the church of Dionysus where the populace are welcomed every hour
just you down-size the water-ways and let the money flow"

well aint it a funny thing now i'm covering up my bases by assuming lots of faces
it's feeling an uncomfortable thing that to be seen in the right places is bringing shame upon my races
and though i'm no. 1 on the scene i'm looking kinda lean, i'm shaking with caffeine
my lifestyles becoming obscene damaging my spleen coz i can't stay clean in machine

"this is the hell" angel said, "when i go away and you've hit the town"
i remember she said

"you better unfreeze the water-way and let the river flow
oh beware and to take care when on the waterfall the icicles appear
though the populace are beckoned to the cult of Dionysus every hour
try to unfreeze the water-way and let the river flow (again)"

aint it a funny thing - now i'm seeing skyscrapers higher than the chapel steeple spires
we can't be sure of anything i'm thinking heaven on the tv 's an inferno of fires
it aint no funny thing now i'm treated like a thief coz i hold my own belief
i'd rather hear somebody sing than them shouting in the street and knocking out some poor boys teeth

"this is the way" she said, "when i go away and you've hit the town
this is the way" angel said, "no greater pleasure than this can be found"
iris she said

"i'm gonna unfreeze the water-way and let the river flow
and i'll beware to take care when on the waterfall the icicles appear
when the populace are beckoned to the cult of Dionysus every hour
i'll try to unfreeze the water-way and let the river flow
unfreeze the water-way and let the river flow

aint it a funny thing though you've money for your dues you're still singing 'bout yer blues"
