Silverscreen

“The words in this song come from a myth that I was taught as a child.  And the muse goes simply like this: When you die, you don't go to heaven.  Right away that is.  You go to a screening.  A screening of your life, and everyone in heaven is there to watch with you.  Sounds alright so far, right?  Well here is the rub: They only show the bad things you did on planet earth...hence the line...the gates of heaven open and there is me...on the silverscreen.  I hope they did good editing!”

-Jesca Hoop

Stolen crown
pillow down
all tangled in my hair
evening gown
the lights downtown
all dangle in the air

the gates of heaven open
and there is me
on the silverscreen
i hope they did good editing

bell and beau
buck and doe
a love of tender age
jill and joe
dosy do
a tragedy on stage

the gates of heaven open
and there is me
on the silverscreen
i hope they did good editing

bye bye baby bye bye
hello to my beautiful mind
bye bye

crystal ball
padded walls
a bright blue t.v. glare
a moth to light is as lost as i’m found
far down cellar stair

the gates of heaven open
and there is me
on the silverscreen
i hope they did good editing
bye bye baby bye bye

Havoc In Heaven

Red ribbon on which we ride
carry us over horizon as the sun setting
night
puts on a phantom cloak
sing violet light and evoke
the protection that violet emotes

fasten your focus on your sole
cause is your fruit and flowers
on
red ribbon
swift justice comes
delivery white bone demon

ohhh ohhh
begun the havoc in heaven

deep deep deep in the green sea
there is a weapon for me
a pin that is fixing the sea
a pillar gold shiny
and if I can pull it free
the cudgel is coming with me

Fasten heave ho
pillar of gold
runs through the deepest darkest stone
cudgel undone weighing one ton
begun the havoc in heaven

ohhh ohhh begun the havoc in heaven

don’t believe your eyes
when the maiden does arrive
you fool
she is the enemy
do not trust the guise of a woman old and wise
for truly she is the white bone demon

Dance makaku’s (monkeys) round the fire
warrior drums
banshee cryers
call to them visions of her piar
fulled by the demons throne
we shall subdue her to bone
and ashes to ashes her home

fasten your focus on your sole
cause is your fruit and flowers home
and in one blow
I smite down my foe
and ashes to ashes welcome home

ohhh ohhh begun the havoc in heaven

Seed of Wonder

Once my love stood still like a stagnant well for so long, you could hear
the song of spiders - strumming fibers
calling her to the web
my river sits in ebb
the little ones lean over - laughter echoes
bounce down the dark until it hits the floor
singin come on baby come on child - call your flo
like a seed of wonder - faith of mustard
o yeah, wo yeah

all is dark - all of the light is vanished it is gone
like something large
hovering high has covered up the sun
and something quiets the silken ringing
something breaks the strum...
a wish has finally come

ah oh ah no ah - all i want is to be writing
to be writing

once that wish did land
like a star in my hand - it burned and it burned and it burrowed in
soar through the source searching - hammer and ping
and tapped my virgin spring - and prime the vein with milk of mother
and wet my river bed
pearls strung up on silk thread - the starry one - beams a light
he’s working under - diggin through the dark gatherin particles
findin everything you ever wished for in your soul like a seed of wonder faith of mustard
ah no ah no ahhhno

finally that tapped spring come runnin like a river
my song it came - ahh eeeyeah ohoo noooay
right away i went writin i went writin
right away i was hummin i was hummin
right away i was singin i was singin
right away i was lovin - and goes something like...
light...
i haven’t always been under such a blue - only you
have seen such stormin in my life

Big Fish

Lyrics taken from jescahoop.com

I made up my mind I'm leavin this town
I'm leavin this town
You won't find me look around
After twenty years of carvin my name in the wet cement
Hand your head down and lament
You won't find me look around.
Baby boy, baby boy don't follow me.
I'm a seed, I'm a seed, I'm a seed from a dandelion wish
With intent to be big fish
In the sea in the sea in the sea
Baby boy, baby boy set me free
Don't sabatoge don't hide away my key.
I'm a lark inside a cage
And the world is but a stage
For to sing for to sing for to sing.

Life Within A Life

Lyrics taken from jescahoop.com

The come and they go-my woes and my joy-I know getting attached to that temporal toil is...is...is...is ignorant they ebb and they flo-my frowns and my smiles-I know getting attached to that miracle mile is...is...is...is ignorant state of bliss-tell me are you happiness-somethings gone terrible wrong if you are the other than this-turn out the sun-all of your golden days are gone-I'm going higher one day is your favorite song. Observe and then note-the flux in your power-your efficience in spinnin your hour to hour is...is...is significant. Deserve and then don't your bouquet of flowers-the universal candy is bitter-sweet-salty-and sour get ...get...get...get used to it! state of bliss-tell me are you happiness-somethings gone terribly wrong if you are other than this. Go get your gun-no need in leavin the safety on-there's a world better than this one is your favorite song. They come-sure as they go-yeah they come-sure as they go. Lifewithinalife-ahhhh-has ended and begun-yeahh-again my tune is sung-oh yeah-we sail into the sun-light and brightest night-dark and dismal day-has ended and begun-in out and in of one-we sail into the sun.

Fix-it Men

you got to keep them fix-it men fed you get
you got to keep them buttered and breaded
you got to keep them sweet
sweet things said
no love at the door they won't come no more.

my oh my
my pipes is dry
what I'm gonna do with dry pipes
forlorn it's early morn
what i'm gonna do with dry pipes

i call my man but he won't stand
cause all i paid him was a bag of sand
now baby what I'm gonna do with dry pipes
oh boy
now what i'm gonna do with dry pipes

you got to keep them fix-it men fed you get
you got to keep them buttered and breaded
you got to keep them sweet
sweet things said
no love at the door they won't come no more.

no fun my car won't run
what about the car that won't run
work work gotta get to work
what about the car that won't run

I call my man but he won't stand
cause all i paid him was to shake my hand
now baby what about the car that won't run
now what about the car that won't run.

you got to keep them fix-it men fed you get
you got to keep them buttered and breaded
you got to keep them sweet
sweet things said
no love at the door they won't come no more.

Ush da doo doot...

roof roof got a leaky roof
what i'm gonna do 'bout that roof
drip drop the rain won't stop
what i'm gonna do 'bout that roof

I call my man but he won't stand
cause nothin's sizzlin in the frying pan
frying pan

you got to keep them fix it men fed better get it
got to keep them buttered and breaded
you got to keep them sweet
sweet things said
no love at the door they won't come no more
no love at the door they won't come no more
no love at the door they won't come no more.
