The Verve - Noise Epic (2008) Track 7 from Forth
Pleading with Athos of the Rock In the ancient language which he spoke But I didn't even give a damn 'Cause all I wanted to do was just sit and have a toke Talk about the restless winds that were blowing in my mind That twisted all we grow as too thin And feelings I had which I couldn't describe And the places I'd come within And as Cro Magnon stood and life just began I'd turn my back on the wind, let it blow The righteous light that was guiding me still And the man with the Holy soul Impatience took a dim view of my words And let me down again I'm so dusty, cladden with all that world-weary stars and reverends
I've got your Mother Mary, God Life is empty I wanna find some peace today I said, Mother Mary, oh Life's so empty I need some peace today, oh oh today
Oh those twisted corridors of power In the ivory walls of hate Where the eagle flies so proudly And I just can't, just can't wait In the victim's mind, he's ready He is ready to exploit the weakness Of the century's greed and feebleness And the lies they whisper To his brothers and sisters
Please Jesus, oh I love you Won't you come and stay Mother Mary, I know life is empty I wanna find some peace today
Hannah hung around for the the rapture On the roam for forty years Of course no-one came, and you know I still live in fear I was waiting for the witnesses of seventy-two I was waiting for the world to fall apart, how about you?
If Husain could have waited Nava'i could have seen the stars in the sky 'Cause I've been waiting for you for fifty odd years I've been waiting for you through these hopes and these tears I was waiting for you, I'm a-waiting for you
There's thunder, in the sky
Why why why - did I let you down? Can I carry that cross for you? Can I carry that cross for you? Is there anything that I need to know? Did you let me down? Did you let me down? Why why why - did you let me down?
Did you think I wouldn't know Why why why - did you let me down?
I wanna sit right here, I'm gonna write you a letter I wanna sail, I wanna sail over the ocean I'm only Georgie Best and Muhammad Ali I don't just use my fists, yeah I use my feet They got spirit, I got spirit Oh mama mama mama it's like yellow earth What was it like for you when you was giving birth You got it in for you, I got it in for me I said, why you always jumping fences like Stevie Mc Queen? I got spirit, come feel it I got spirit, you can feel it He got spirit, we gotta feel it You got spirit, scream if you feel it
WAKE UP, WAKE UP, WAKE UP, WAKE UP, WAKE UP, WAKE UP, WAKE UP, WAKE UP, WAKE UP, WAKE UP
