Somewhere But Yesterday – Jonny Had Another Face

Jonny had another face
That he kept behind the door
He steps in one by one
Cannot take no more
He woke in an ancient plain
God had sold him out
Delayed by an inner space
In a room he can’t get out

The harpies are singing
A blue baby’s screaming
That monster at the back
Said hey mate
Gonna carve you up for lunch

I’d like to thank you one and all
For a pleasant journey
I’d like to thank you on and on
For a winning journey

It wasn’t my intention
How could I go back
It wasn’t my invention
A stab in the back
Don’t you think I know that

Jonny had another face tut tut
Jonny had another face
Just to even up the score
He was pulled by premonitions
But he wasn’t really sure
He woke to an ancient plain
To a field of carnivores feeding
Delayed by an inner space
Like a room with many ceilings

The harpies are feeding
The furies are screaming
That monster at the back
Said too late
Just carved you up for lunch

I’d like to thank you one and all
For a pleasant journey
I’d like to thank you on and on
For a winning journey

Don’t you know we can mesmerise
Atishoo you all fall down
Ring a roses a game you like
We wish you would all fall down
In and out for that second time
That Watchtower it must fall down
So pay the price for your thoughtless crime
To teach you it all falls down

In the mirror it’s plainly seen
An alien energy in my dreams

Now the fool has become a clown
That Watchtower has broken down
Round and round you go in a daze
Just spinning and falling down

In the mirror it’s plainly seen
An alien entity dreaming with me

He was the Lord’s gentle warrior
He has a sword in his hand
He brings you life for tomorrow
Then buys it back on demand
come all the sweet little children
Join in the feast of the lamb
Answer the call to the righteous
Glory and on oh should they be damned

So you think you hold the truth
He who knows of Eden
But you don’t know what to do
Seasons pass you by
In a hundred years of life or more
You’ll find out you’ve never been there at all

Now that you feel your body moving
How can you laugh how can you cry
Now that you think you’re up and moving
Riding high into the sky

Now that you feel your body moving
How can you laugh how can you cry
Now that you think you’re up and moving
Running back to pie in the sky

Now you land in quick sand
It’s inside you overides you now

The moon had got another face
As angels come and go
The wind that blows can blow you away
Jonny…. haha!

I can see you face to face
Crawling round your Eden
It’s full of your disgrace
Calling on your Eden
In your mind you can’t escape
Falling from your Eden
Gone back to save your face
Die then in your Eden
