The Flesh Failures (Let the Sunshine In)

April 11, 2015

Music: Galt MacDermot

Lyrics: James Rado, Gerome Ragni, William Shakespeare

We starve-look at one another, short of breath,
Walking proudly in our winter coats.
Wearing smells from laboratories,
Facing a dying nation of moving paper fantasy,
List’ning for the new-told lies,
With supreme visions of lonely tunes.

Somewhere, inside something there is a rush of
Greatness. Who knows what stands in front of
Our lives? I fashion my future on films in space.
Silence tells me secretly
Everything,
Everything.

Manchester, England, England
Manchester, England, England (Eyes, look your last,)
Across the Atlantic Sea (arms, take your last embrace)
And I’m a genius, genius (and lips, oh you, the doors)
I believe (of breath)
in God
(seal with a)
And I believe that God
(righteous kiss,)
believes  (seal with a righteous kiss)
in Claude
That’s me, (The rest is silence,)
that’s me, that’s me
(The rest is silence, the rest is silence.)

We starve-look at one another, short of breath,
Walking proudly in our winter coats.
Wearing smells from laboratories,
Facing a dying nation of moving paper fantasy,
List’ning for the new-told lies
With supreme visions of lonely tunes.

Singing our space songs on a spider web sitar,
Life is around you and in you.
Answer for Timothy Leary, dearie.

Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
