mp3s, lyrics, info: www.jpjones.net

some men choose a life
of steadier things
one man takes a wife
another one wings
mamma don't you weep for me
i'm lonely but i shall be free
one man lives in strife
another man sings
taken by surprise
my angel redeems
the aching in my eyes
waking up in my dreams
to an echoing despair
to a promise in the air
i shall weave a prayer
without any seams

on a long blue train
blowing through the darkness
with a destiny like thunder
in the rain

the shuttle splits the dark
the pattern descends
places in my heart
faces i've been
flash across the glass
from the future to the past
till all are free at last
to inherit the wind
all my brothers behind bars
every babe in the womb
husband of the stars
bride of the moon
homeless or betrayed
holy or depraved
from the cradle to the grave
are laid on the loom

(chorus)

exiled for the crime
of stealing the ring
from the architects of time
scholar and king
o and the tyin of the strands
and the shiftin of the sands
and the dancing of my hands
on whispering strings
come ye ghosts of heaven and hell
explode in my blood
goddess of the bell
dagger and dove
each one rides with me
from the city to the sea
on a wheel of mystery
engines of love

(chorus)

rejected now or received
my vision will shout
with my heart upon my sleeve
shattering doubt
and the tattoos that it took
on the flesh of the living book
no one overlooked
nothing left out
and in the cycles of rebirth
pulse of the drum
heart beating of the earth
song of the sun
every nation on the stage
every turning of the page
every passion of the age
calling to come

(chorus)

father of my song
river of light
carry me along
into the night
and the poets gone before
sisters on the shore
all of this and more
burning and bright
and my love mamma shall be
bold to all women and men
and no one shall shame or
scold the child again
and the story shall be told
of the wedding of the flesh and soul
and the rose it shall unfold
forever amen

on a long blue train...
