LETRAS

ALL ALONG THE WATCHTOWER

"There must be some kinda way out of here"
Said a joker to the thief
"There's too much confusion,
I can't get no relief.
Businessmen they, they drink my wine,
Ploughmen dig my earth
None will level on the line
Nobody of it is worth"

"No reason to get excited"
The thief he kindly spoke.
"There are many here among us
Who feel that life is but a joke.
But you and I we've been through that
And this is not our fate.
So let us not talk falsely now,
The hour's getting late"

All along the watchtower, 
Princess kept the view
While all the women came and went,
Barefoot servants too.
Outside in the cold distance
A wildcat did growl
Two riders were approaching
And the wind began to howl

BURNING OF THE MIDNIGHT LAMP

The morning is dead
and the day is too
there's nothing left here to greet me
but the velevet moon
all my loneliness
i have felt today
it's a little more than enough
to make a man throw himself away
i continue
to burn the midnight lamp 
alone
Now the smiling portrait of you
is stll hangin' on my frowning wall
but it really doesn't really doesn't bother me too much at all
it's just the, uh, ever falling dust 
that makes it so hard for me to see
that forgotten ear-ring laying on the floor
facing coldly toward the door
and i continue
to burn the midnight lamp
whoa, alone
Burn
yeah yeah
lonely lonely lonely
loneliness is such a, drag
So here i sit to face 
that same old fire place 
gettin' ready for the sam old explosion
goin' through my mind 
and soon enough time will tell
about the circus and the wishingwell
and someone who will by and sell for me
someone who will toll my bell 
and i continue to burn the same old lamp 
alone
Yeah, right now 
can you hear me callin' you so lonely 
gotta blow my mind 
yeah yeah
lonely lonely lonely
blow my mind
yeah

CROSSTOWN TRAFFIC

You jump in front of my car when you,
you know all the time that
Ninety miles an hour, girl, is the speed I drive
You tell me it's alright, you don't mind a little pain
You say you just want me to take you for a drive

You're just like crosstown traffic
So hard to get through to you
Crosstown traffic
I don't need to run over you
Crosstown traffic
All you do is slow me down
And I'm tryin' to get on the other side of town

I'm not the only soul who's accused of hit and run
Tire tracks all across your back
I can see you had your fun
But darlin' can't you see my signals turn from green to red
And with you I can see a traffic jam straight up ahead

You're just like crosstown traffic
So hard to get through to you
Crosstown traffic
I don't need to run over you
Crosstown traffic
All you do is slow me down
And I got better things on the other side of town 

RAINY DAY, DREAM AWAY

Cough, cough, sniff, sniff
hey man, take a look out the window 
and see what's happening
hey man, its rainin' its rainin' outside man
oh don't worry about that, brother
everything's gonna be everything
we'll get into something real nice, you know
why don't ya sit back and groove on a rainy day
Snif, yeah
sniff
yeah i see what you mean brother
maybe i can groove
Rainy day dream away
let the sun take a holiday
flowers bathe and uh
see the children play 
lay back and groove on a rainy day
well i can see a bunch of wet preachers, look at 'em on the run
the carnival trafic noise, it sinks
into the splashy hum
even the ducks can groove 
rain burdend in a park-side pool
and i'm leanin out my window sill
diggin' everything
and uh you too
Rainy day rain all day
ain't no use in gettin' up tonight
just let it groove its own way 
let it drain
your wories away
lay back and groove on a rainy day
lay back and dream on a rainy day

VOODOO CHILD (SLIGHT RETURN)

Well, i stand up next to a mountain 
and i chop it down with the edge of my hand 
yeah
well, i stand up next to a mountain 
and i chop it down with the edge of my hand 
well, i pick up all the pieces and make an island
might even raise a little sand

I want to say one more last thing
I didn't mean to take up all your sweet time

I said i didn't mean to take up all your sweet time 
i'll give it right back one of these days

Cause i'm a voodoo child voodoo child

I don't take no for an answer
Question no

  2. Con este disco impresionante, cerramos un año muy productivo de "La Rockarea". Nada menos que ¡76! entradas. Espero lo hayan disfrutado. Gracias a todos los que se tomaron la molestia de pasar por este sitio. Paz y bien y un muy feliz año nuevo. Que en el 2013 se despierten las conciencias y se reduzca la agresividad, la mezquindad y el dolor. Reciban un fuerte abrazo, la seguimos muy pronto si DIOS quiere.
