Forgotten Band Planet
The Telescopes



Time of indifference and
Time just time
Sometimes everything would be fine if
Only for time

Sleeping don't you wake me
Please just let me float this dream's
The best I've ever had

It's raining down and down
Just let it rain away
Don't bother me with rain
And other misery

Tomorrow and forever
Let me sleep today
Turn off the winding clock
And let me drift away


This gun is loaded

Fellate the barrel
Suck bullets crazy
Out on the corner
Nobody hears?
Nobody cares?
(Scream! Scream! Scream!)

And when it hurts, it hurts, it feels
I fall, she screams
And when I think, I think, it seems
I fall, she screams
I fall, she screams

To the big big house
To the very small rooms
Ah ha ha- you're living in ruin
I wanna tell you a story?
I think I'll start again
You should hear my story?
I think I'll start again


I fall,
She screams
I fall
She screams

Well, I can really "freak" with that
You really "zero" me out
(all dead pretentiousness)
Ah ha! ha!
This Gun Is Loaded
I'm feeling bored...
This gun is loaded
ah ha! ha

I fall,
She screams
I fall,
She screams


The open window
Haunts the cradle
Kill the crow
Black eyed demons thru this broken pain of glass
Rush the body
A'comin' thru the rye


Crowns of thorns upon your head
Your jesus- hey! hey!
Crowns of thorns upon my head
My jesus- hey! hey!

Turn around
Turn around
Endless fear
Colliding thru the open air

(repeat chorus)

And you can have my
Oil seed rape
As you burn in the corn
As you float out the window

Oil seed rape
Oil seed rape

(repeat chorus)

Yellow miles of miles on miles
The haunting smell of opium
Gliding on a breath
The cradle's empty and the crow lies dead


Sick and intervening as she's hiding from the shrill and piercing laughter, satisftaction guaranteed for all who care to taste the blade, the blade of laughtered steel the blade that wounds upon your naked skin and as she breathes her lasting...
.....please don't lay me out in red

Forest deep and thickening bear witness to this illing sin, of silence only shattering to retrieve the footsteps in your mall of heather stained final breath, your mark is made upon your... hallowed... sickness, tortured soul of torment, aching sores and blistered wasted on your furniture of roses
.....please don't lay me out in red

And when I'm dead and lingering inside perverted memories that scream the taste of violence tastes only of the cobwebs spun upon your shell of haunting don't forget the eyes of redness spill the veins that burst with ecstasy purveying thoughts of misery
.....please don't lay me out at all

(Note, there are more tracks, but these are the only lyrics....)

All things ever by Stephen Lawrie



Revelations comin' and comin',
Glad it's too late for me to pray (again)
Till the morning sun can save me,
Till the warmth of my sins can't touch me now (and again)

A touch whenever bring sometimes...
A touch there never could define...

Oh realisations come to nothing
More than all you've ever heard before (again)
Surrender still abused me,
Universed me, you can't confuse me now (and again)

(repeat chorus)

High On Fire
Release your sails, arise, forever, sanctify yourself once more
How it seems and so much clearer, seeing you thru your own eyes...

High On Fire...
High On Fire...
Higher and Higher...
Higher and Higher...
Higher and High'r...
Higher and High'r...
Ahhh ahhhh...

Like an ocean wave we fly, like dragonflies we loose our wings,
Everyday's a sea of wishes, always swimming on the shore...

(repeat chorus)

You Set My Soul
For heaven's sake... may come to you...
All for goodness sake, forever disgracin you...
"I think I'm alive... well, d'you think it's alright?
I'm seeing it thru... welcomin to you"

You... You set my soul...
You... You set my soul...

Well do y'need some help?
"Don't answer this. How can I explain?"
How can I reply? I can't explain...
You don't waste any time... especially mine...
You may never be sure... to find a cure for you...

(repeat chorus)

Thrown away, returned, became your sunflower,
Only growin up to your cloudin eyes...
Some kind of welcome in you is like a rush right off my face;
I would not climb too far from here

You can feel so sure...
Eventually no more...
You can't feel much at all...
A memory... a spaceship left behind

What a great day for your warm smile,
It's a shameful tragic lie
Some kind of happiness is all we need to make ourselves worthwhile
What a great day for your life

(repeat chorus)

The Presence Of Your Grace
Supposin we're all wished right out of space
S'alright... we float on by...
but as we fall we bathe... In ultra-violet rays
Suppose it's heaven that we're falling from...

(or) Your Grace...
Your Grace...
We're fallin from the presence of your grace...

No reason why we pass we slip away
To grow a fresher taste of sun...
And glide and glide...
In the air is a breeze and the sooner you breathe,
Should this be heaven...

(or) Your Grace...
Your Grace...
We're fallin from the presence of your grace...
Fallin from the pleasure of your.........

It could never be true now,
Never believin somehow
All your beliefs now,
ohhh... you're believin now...
And don't get used to thinkin it's alright
Alright... (anymore...)
Alright... (anymore...)
It's alright any... more...
In a long while,
You'll hardly complain (maybe)
ohhh... it's all that you can be
And don't expect anything amaaazin
And don't get used to thinkin it's alright...

You are part of the sky, fly away away away,
Don't you need to feel the ground you cannot see?
Everywhere in everything is something new to know, to feel
Every part of the sky, beneath, there's angels at your feet

aaaah-aaaah... and my eyes can't fail my mind...
Flying away...

You are waves on the sea, crashing down and down on me
Don't you need to reach the sky you cannot feel?
Sometimes when, you never smile, you always notice what you feel
Every wave on the sea, I couldn't drown you should I please

(repeat chorus)

Snowdrop... your complaining heart beats me too hard...
It may take too much more than enough sometimes...
I see the stars are somewhere in your smile...

I keep trying your pain...
I'm sick for your love...
I keep trying your pain...
I'm sick for your love...

What if I said... yeah...

By the time you come alive, we're comin straight between your eyes
I thought I saw I... swear... I... thought... you tired on me
You stretch my strength, my hopelessness from me...

(repeat chorus)

Ocean Drive
When your tired illusions shine their rays, they glow inside
Feel them rise, they open up and floatin up they rise...
Are you...

Ready now to sleep,
You don't have to close your eyes to dream,
You've never lived before,
See the light pass thru your eyes this Ocean Drive...

Safe inside, a shell is always safer than it feels
But here we lie, and freedom doesn't seem the same again...

(repeat chorus)

Please Tell Mother
You lift and you dive....
My oh my... you should not levitate me
You should not waste a sigh for me
You may never catch your breath and you may breathe less out of me
And may you almost touch the warmth that you provide in me

ahhh-ha... ahhh-ha... ahhh ha...
ahhh-ha... ahhh-ha... ahhh-ha-ah...
Please tell mother this...

I'm surfacing to you...
It just reminds me of what I'm living for
We move like children think sometimes
And the way it feels today will be the way it feels for always
Just like falling backwards to the wind

(repeat chorus)

To The Shore
Washed me down,
Just slipped a day or so
Watered me down,
Led all this safety, gently, to my eyes...
To my eyes...
For the good of my own health I may go blind...
They always see, they always take me...
To the shore... to the shore...
Just for a while
Is turning into days just like it will
When all a-while
It's turning from surrender to surprise...
Into my eyes...
For the good of my own health I may go blind...
They always see, they always take me...
wishing to find...
When we are drifting to the shore...
To the shore... to the shore...
