Song Halo Of Flies – Skyclad

Posted on by sensei

A fool to crucify or to put upon a pedestal.
Only dead fish float with the stream –
Compared with you I seem like an extra-terrestrial.

I’m not your Robin Hood or Peter Pan,
I won’t play Jesus Christ – Santa Claus.
I’ll never pass for a superman –
I’m just an effect trying to find a cause.

Tell me who am I, what am I and why am I here.

Is it because I’m flesh and blood
That creature comforts feel so good?
I give my body all it needs –
It sleeps and eats and shits and breeds.

And if I keep my feelings stum,
Hard luck – bibo ergo sum.
Just trying to do the best I can
Is a giant leap for this small man.

All you needed was somebody with a dream,
A fool to crucify or to put upon a pedestal.
Only dead fish float with the stream –
Compared with you I seem like an extra-terrestrial.

You say that life is a miracle –
I don’t believe one word.
Forgive me for being so cynical –
From down here you all look absurd.

So are you happy now we all feel the same?
Martyrs to the cause – boredom level nearing terminal.
You’re afraid to go against the grain,
Next to you I feel like a shining intellectual.

James T. Kirk – Albert Einstein,
Sitting safe aboard the Enterprise.
If you’re out there send me a sign –
I need somebody to sympathise with.

Tell me who am I, what am I and why am I here.

Must I succumb to every urge –
First feast and fast (then binge and purge).
My spirit’s strong – my flesh is weak,
I laugh and cry and scream and speak.

And sometimes when i feel confused,
I walk a path I did not choose.
Watch my life on video –
A private homemade horror show.

All you needed was somebody with a dream,
A fool to crucify or to put upon a pedestal.
Only dead fish float with the stream –
