antony and the johnsons lyrics


Her eyes are underneath the ground
I have heard the crying sound
Noone can stop you now
Her eyes are basking in the sun
Noone knows why she did the things she done
Ocean, swallow me now
In the garden, with my mother, I stole a flower
With my mother, in her power, I stole a flower
I saw six eyes glistening in my womb
I felt you calling me in the gloom
Rest assured your love is pure
In the garden, with my mother, I stole a flower
With my mother, in her power, I chose a flower


Epilepsy is dancing
She’s the Christ now departing
And I’m finding my rhythm
As I twist in the snow
The metal burned in me
Down the brain of my river
That fire was searching
For a waterway home
I cry “Glitter is Love!”
My eyes pinned inside
with green jewels
Hanging like Christmas stars
from a golden Vein
As I came to a screaming
Hold me while I’m dreaming
For my fingers are curling
And I cannot breathe
Then I cried in the kitchen
How I’d seen your ghost witching
As a soldering blue line
between my eyes
I cry “Glitter is Love!”
My eyes
Pinned inside
Sea Green jewels
Hanging like Christmas stars
from a Golden Vein
Cut me in quadrants
leave me in the corner
Ooh now it’s passing
Oon now I’m dancing


One dove
You’re the one I’ve been waiting for
Through the darkfall
The nightmares the lonely nights
I was born
A curling fox in a hole
Hiding from danger
Scared to be alone
One dove
To bring me some peace
In starlight you came from the other side
To offer me mercy
One dove
I’m the one you’ve been waiting for
From your skin I am born again
I wasn’t born yesterday
You were old and hurt
I was longing to be free
I see things you were too tired
That you were too scared to see
One dove
To bring me some peace
In starlight you came from the other side
To offer me mercy


Kiss my name
Mama in the afterglow
When the grass is green with grow
And my tears have turned to snow
I’m only a child
Born upon a grave
Dancing through the stations
Calling out my name
Oh Mama Kiss my name
I am trying to be sane
I’m trying to kiss my friends
And when broken, make amends
Kiss my name, the curtains white
The turtle doves embroider light
As I lie, murdered in ground
The rain compacting sodden sound
Of songs I sang the years before
When it was time to rain
Upon the coal that I became


let I
shy cry
under the light
let I
cry sight
a child at night
I can
have courage
to receive your love
I can
step steps
Follow my blind
my self
the secret grows
my own
agony goes
I was born to adore you
As a baby in the blind
I was born to represent you
To carry your head into the sun
To carve you face into the back of the sun


I need another place
will there be peace?
I need another world
this one’s nearly gone
Still have too many dreams
Never seen the light
I need another world
a place where I can go
I’m gonna miss the sea
I’m gonna miss the snow
I’m gonna miss the bees
I’ll miss the things that grow
I’m gonna miss the trees
I’m gonna miss the sun
I’ll miss the animals
Gonna miss you all
I need another place
Will there be peace?
I need another world
This ones nearly gone
I’m gonna miss the birds
Singing all their songs
I’m gonna miss the wind
Been kissing me so long


There was no light
Only the white night
First born when the sun
Screamed her eyes open
Daylight in the fields
Daylight mountains
Fire kisses the floor
Of the lakes and makes shadows
Now I cry for daylight
Daylight and the sun
Now I cry for daylight
daylight everyone
Daylight in my heart
Daylight in the trees
Daylight kissing everything
She can see
ooh your dream
Here on the water
Warm the sand
The seagulls calling
Kissed by kindness
You gave me this
Your fire becomes a kiss


oh Aeon
my baby boy
oh Aeon will take care of me
all the stars, your eyes
raining just for me
oh Aeon will set me free
oh Aeon
my baby boy
oh Aeon will repair me
oh his heart enjoyed
restores eyes alloyed
carry me through the olden void
oh Aeon
his arms are warm
oh Aeon was never born
Aeon’s eyes forlorn
he contains the storm
he’s the pasture of my dawn
ooh Aeon
my baby boy
oh Aeon will take care of me
hold my father
for it is myself
without him I wouldn’t exist
ooh Aeon
love my father
for my father is myself
hold that man
in your tender clutch
hold that man I love so much


Oh I love the coal
I love the way you’re waiting
I love your kind patience
I told you this day would come
Did you think I’d leave you here
How long can dust wait?
Ask the moon
But ask him soon!


When I’m floating in the water
And Your eyes are lilies all around
When I’m lying sweetly in my bed
The sun plays crystal with my eyes
Then I stop
My body stops crying for home
My limbs stop weeping for home
When I’m peeping in a parlor of trees
And the leaves are winking all around
“I’m home,” my heart sobs in my veins
But brains they play the softest games
Fingers kiss the string
Mouth taste the blade
of Everglade
