The Magic Whip Lyrics

Post by sara-m-a » 26 Mar 2015, 19:01

Can we try and collect the lyrics?

This isn't perfect, and I'm uncertain of a few little bits, but here's a stab at it:

My Terracotta Heart
In the bright rays
We got in summertime
Seem like a breath of fresh air
Back in the summertime
When we were more like brothers
But that was years ago
So if it doesn’t seem like we (broke up???)

Running out of heart today
Running out of open road to you (I think it does say open road)
And I know you are a ??? any day (added the any)

Is something broke inside you?
At the moment I’m lost and feeling that I don’t know
If I’m losing you again

And tomorrow we fly
Over the Java sea
And my younger man
Will be there with me
‘Cos they remind me of swimming
Out too far one day
Then the cold was gone
But I didn’t care anyway

I was running out of heart that day
Was running out of open road to you
Then I know I am ??? (the hell he sings here??)
Is something broke inside me?
‘Cos at the moment I’m lost
And feel that I don’t know
If I’m losing you again

‘Cos I’m running out of heart here
Just sitting out constant doubt in my head
But I don’t know why it is

Swimming out the tide’s in
My Terracotta Heart breaking
I don't know if I'm losing you
If I'm losing you again

Lonesome Street


[Verse 1]
What do you got?
Mass produced in somewhere hot
You'll have to go on the Underground
To get things done here
And then you have
[?] service done
This is a place to come to, or, well, it was
I know a hot spot
Crossing on the guillotine

[Chorus]
And if you have nobody left to rely on
I'll hold you in my arms and let you drift
It's got to be that time again
And you, you will be over soon again

[Verse 2]
So get yourself up, get past [?] on your way
There's nothing to be ashamed of
Taking off again
The 514 to East Grinstead
You've set me off
[?]
And talking types will let us down
Talk, talk on your arse all night
You wanna be there

[Bridge]
Step inside the tarmac ride
To the land that time forgot
Oh, we're just gonna go there
Cracks inside the tarmac ride
To the land that crime forgot, oh no

[Outro]
And if you have nobody left to rely on
I'll hold you in my arms and let you drift
Going down to Lonesome Street
Going down to Lonesome Street
Lonesome Street
Going down to Lonesome Street
Lonesome Street
Going down to Lonesome Street
Lonesome Street

These are from the net, if someone with fine ear can fix them, please let me know to edit the posts

Go Out

[Intro]
Uh, uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh,
Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh

[Verse 1]
I'm gettin' sad alone, dancing with myself
Greedy go-getter goal, the luxury of stealth
I'm seedy on the whole, dancing with myself
I get into my bed, I do it to myself

[Chorus]
To the local, to the lo-o-o, I go out
To the local, by myself
To the local

[Verse 2]
I did it to my head, there's nothing to be addressed now
There's nothing to get up about, cause we do it all the time
The shepherd is undone, she done it all again
I get ready to go, the greed go-getter con

[Chorus 2]
He going to the local oohh
He going to the local oohh
He going to the lo-o-cal oohh
He going to the lo-o-cal oohh

[Verse 3]
To many western men, it's a problem left undone
Imperious the sign, the papers of luxury
A greedy go-getter in the skybox, she run alone
She get ready to go, she does it with herself

She does it with herself
She does it with herself
She does it on her own
She does it on her own

Uh, uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh
uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh

I think the phrase "magic whip" is in the line after that.

Ok english is not my first language, but I tried... mind helping me fill in the gaps??

I thought I was a spaceman

I thought I was a spaceman
digging out my heart
in some distant sand dune
in a car park

???
The places where we live
people like me to keep the demons in
but we never succeeded, we never succeeded
In fact we failed

I thought I was a spaceman
digging out my heart
in some distant sand dune
in a car park

by the empty harbour
??
?? happy valley
???

I thought I found my black box
Washed upon the shore
on a ???
??? for

?? friedly?
but that was not true at all
I walked into a pub and I raised hell
??
Always and always the same
But the ghosting writing?
And let it be You again

I thought I was a spaceman
digging out my heart
in some distant sand dune
in hyde park

Graham

I thought I was a spaceman
Digging out my heart
in some distant sand dune
You again

Digging out my heart
in some distant sand dune

You again

You again

You again

Actually listening to the live version of Go Out there, I think it might me "I'm seedy in the hall," but I truly wish it was this:

sounds more like "I'm seedy in the hall"

also...
"too many western men, top *shirt button left undone"

*he sings this live
I can't wear that, stupid rain hat

Have to say I'm quite intrigued as to the significance of 'seven' in the lyrics of New World Towers.
