There is a myth that great artists operate in seclusion. Hogwash. One need look no further than to the ten songs of Antony and the Johnsons' new album, I Am A Bird Now, to realize this is an utter fallacy. To be sure, with his androgynous features, the singularly named Antony is an original. Have you ever heard a voice like this, imbued with the transcendental emotion of the blues, yet deployed with an unadorned simplicity reminiscent of medieval music practice, and graced with a top note of childlike wonder? Or songs that blur distinctions of gender and identity, yet which still summon up such powerful feelings: longing, love, lust, loss? No. Because Antony is one-of-a-kind. But he is certainly not alone.

I Am A Bird Now, the second full-length from this extraordinary New York artist and his cohorts, features contributions from both Antony's peers (Rufus Wainwright, Devendra Banhardt) and heroes (Lou Reed, Boy George). Their involvement reflects both their admiration for Antony, and his unique place in the contemporary arts community. "Everyone's presence on the record shows them at their most unique, making a special contribution that is specific to them," says Antony. He arranged each one with painstaking precision, like a director creating an extended tableau on stage.

"Bringing other people in makes me feel less lonely," adds Antony. "I was making the album intuitively, the way I felt it wanted to be made. A lot of these people helped inspire this record."

As a youngster in California, Antony was smitten by the beguiling image of Boy George on Culture Club's 1982 debut album Kissing To Be Clever. "George was really the first reflection I saw of myself in the world," he explains. "I saw him and thought, 'Okay, that's what we do when we're like this: We become singers.'" Twenty two years later, Antony found himself sitting at a piano, recording the haunting "You Are My Sister" with his icon. "When he was in the studio, I just felt this big, long circle connecting in my spirit."

Another one of Antony's champions, Lou Reed, introduces the soulful "Fistful of Love," an intoxication concoction that mixes Muscle Shoals soul with an almost heroic sense of masochism. In 2003, Reed asked Antony to reinterpret "Perfect Day" for his album The Raven. Subsequently, the former Velvet Underground front man invited Antony to perform as part of the small ensemble on his American and European tours; he even gave Antony a solo turn on the VU classic "Candy Says," an homage to another one of Antony's inspirations, Warhol superstar Candy Darling.

Fitting, then, that the image adorning the cover of I Am A Bird Now is Peter Hujar's striking 1974 photograph "Candy Darling On Her Deathbed." In Hujar's black and white images of underground figures like Darling and Divine, Antony found another early touchstone. "There's no sense of voyeurism in his portraits," explains the singer. "They show an inside perspective. And that's something I'm interested in: being empathic, not voyeuristic."

When Antony moved to New York in 1990, he came in search of a community where he could feel like an insider. He instigated the avant garde cabaret ensemble Blacklips, renown for their regular performances at the Pyramid Club, in New York's then vibrant East Village. Initially, he modeled himself on Isabella Rossellini in Blue Velvet, and the bald drag queen pictured on the sleeve of Soft Cell's 1982 single "Torch." "I got that record when I was 11 years old, and thought, 'That's going to be me one day.' And I have pictures of me at the Pyramid, with a shaved head, in a slip, and holding a cigarette, singing love songs."

Since that arrival, Antony has gradually come into his own, winning accolades for his performances everywhere from Joe's Pub and Germany's Biennale Bonn, to a turn in Steve Buscemi's independent film Animal Factory. Yet I Am A Bird Now is a great leap forward from Antony and the Johnsons eponymous 2000 debut album (reissued last year by Secretly Canadian) and the 2001 single "I Fell In Love With A Dead Boy." "In a weird way, this album is much more personal," he admits. As he shed many of his archetypal influences, Antony dared to reveal even more of himself to the listener. "I Am A Bird Now feels more intimate. In making it, I tried to bring everything ó how it was recorded, how it was performed ó extremely close, so it felt seductive, like it was right in your ear."

Some musicians hide behind personas, or the words of others, or fine-tuned video imagery. Antony, as otherworldly as he may look and sound, is not afraid of letting audiences see his true self, however vulnerable. "Opening myself up to the work, and to the world, is my passion," he concludes. "That is the great risk, and the great boon, of doing this: There is that rare experience the performer gets to enjoy, which, in a way, is like having your spirit witnessed by people. And, sometimes, appreciated. Perhaps people will see it and relate, or identify themselves in it." And thus the community that has nurtured Antony, up to and through the creation of I Am A Bird Now (and beyond), continues to flourish and grow.

Twilight

Twilight
I fall in the Harbor
Twilight
I fall in the hills
But here in the city
That never sleeps
I can fall
Through one's fingers

When the swan
Flies to heaven
Soaring through
The utmost fear
There's a feeling
That lingers in the afterwards
Will you ever return
Will you ever return
Will you ever return

Twilight
Twilight
Twilight

Twilight
I sit at all tables
With my candles
And angels besides
And I shall wait forever
As the day turns to night
Swallowed in the shadows that glow
Swallowed in the shadows that glow
Swallowed in the shadows that glow

When I sought out a light
And I knew darkness swallowed
I beseech, come to me
All alone, come to me

Twilight

*** Thanx a lot to Cynthia for this one ***

Cripple and the Starfish

Mr. Muscle forcing bursting
Stingy thingy into little me, me, me
But just "ripple" said the cripple
As my jaw dropped to the ground
Smile smile

It's true I always wanted love to be
Hurtful
And it's true I always wanted love to be
Filled with pain
And bruises

Yes, so Cripple-Pig was happy
Screamed " I just completely love you!
And there's no rhyme or reason
I'm changing like the seasons
Watch! I'll even cut off my finger
It will grow back like a Starfish!
It will grow back like a Starfish!
It will grow back like a Starfish!"

Mr. Muscle, gazing boredly
And he checking time did punch me
And I sighed and bleeded like a windfall
Happy bleedy, happy bruisy

I am very happy
So please hit me
I am very very happy
So please hurt me

I am very happy
So please hit me
I am very very happy
So come on hurt me

I'll grow back like a Starfish
I'll grow back like a Starfish
I'll grow back like a Starfish
I'll grow back like a Starfish

I'll grow back like a Starfish
I'll grow back like a Starfish
I'll grow back like a Starfish
I'll grow back like a Starfish
Like a Starfish...

Hitler in my Heart

As I search for a piece of kindness
And I find Hitler in my heart

And he is whispering
"As sure as love will spring
From the Well of Blood in Vain, oh Jew!
The Well of Blood in Vain!"

And I fell into a deeper precipice
With mouths of rapists
Jaws dropped down
Jaws dropped down
Jaws dropped

Don't punish me
For wanting your love inside of me
Don't punish me
For wanting your love inside of me

And I find Hitler in my heart
From the corpses flowers grow

And I find Hitler in my heart
From the corpses flowers grow

And I find Hitler in my heart
From the corpses flowers grow
Flowers grow
From the corpses flowers grow
Flowers grow

*** Thanx a lot to Cynthia for this one ***

The Atrocities

God visits all lost souls
To survey the damage
We noticed a bonfire
Burning in his eyes

He whispered
"It's the atrocities of your story
Of your story"

God visits all lost souls
To survey the damage
And holding his bleeding heart
A tear comes to his eye
He whispered
It's the atrocities of History
Of History
Of...

The he falls to the floor
For there's many more tears on the sunrise
And now we must eat those tears
Now we must eat our fill
Of the Atrocities
The Atrocities
The Atrocities
The Atrocities

*** Thanx a lot to Cynthia for this one ***

River of Sorrow

There is a black river
It passes by my window
And late at night
All dolled up like Christ
I walk the water
Between the piers

Singing
Oh
River of sorrow
River of time, river
River of sorrow
Don't swallow this time

For we all know the baby has expired
Long ago she was pulled from the mire
And no precious liar or well-wisher
Can return the love that was stolen

Oh
River of sorrow
River of time, river
River of sorrow
Don't swallow this time

Can you see the light
At the end of the dark passageway
Take me wit you towards this light
Into the darkness passing over the faces in the river
Hear me!
I'm whispering in your ear!

Oh
River of sorrow
Oh, river of time
River of sorrow
Don't swallow this time

Oh
River of sorrow
Oh, river of time
River of sorrow
Don't swallow this time

*** Thanx a lot to Cynthia for this one ***

Rapture

Rapture...

Eyes are falling
Lips are falling
Hair is falling to the ground
Slowly, softly
Falling, falling
Down in silence to the ground
All the world is falling, falling
All the blue
From me and you
Teardrops falling to the ground
Teardrops
I'm talkin' 'bout your teardrops

For instance
Oh my mama
She's been falling
Falling down for quite some time
And oh my papa
He's been falling
Falling down for quite some time
Oh my friends
I've watched them falling
Falling softly to the ground
Like the leaves
The Leaves are falling
Down in silence to the ground

Is this the rapture
Is this the rapture
Why don't you tell me
Is this the rapture
Is this the rapture
Our father who art in heaven
For the kingdom, the power, the glory, yours
Now and forever

Deeper than Love

My heart is broken
Here in the cup of my hands
From between cracked fingers
Old blood spills

I had to move on, baby
For when I tasted my own tears
They were too sweet
And I knew that I had come to close

And I have tried to shine in the darkness
Entertaining vanities in vain

Fall deeper
Fall deeper

My heart is broken
Here in the cup of my hands
From between cracked fingers
Old blood spills

I had to move on, baby
For when I tasted my own tears
They were too sweet
And I knew that I had come to close

And I have tried to shine in the darkness
Entertaining vanities in vain
But now won't you come with me
As I open my eyes

And hold on
Hold on
And let go
Let go
Let the virus live a life
Hold on
And hold on
And let go
Let go
And fall deeper
Even than love
Even than love
Hold on
And fall deeper
Even than love
Even than love
Even than love...

*** Thanx a lot to Cynthia for this one ***

Divine

Good-Bye, baby
Baby, good-bye
Divine, oh Divine
Falling like a picture of time

Oh he was the Mother of America
He was my self-determined guru
Myself, I hold your big fat heart in my hands

And I hold your burning heart in my hands
A supernova
A flame on fire
Shining in the darkness

Did someone mention a rapture
Well I turn to think of you
Who walked the way with so much pain
Who holds the mirror up to fools

And I'll murder the ingrates
Who stand in our way!
And I'll swallow shit, laughing
On my bed of hay!

And I hold your burning heart in my hands
And I hold your burning heart in my hands
A supernova
A flame on fire
Shining in the darkness

Divine
Divine

A supernova
A flame on fire
Shining in the darkness

*** Thanx a lot to Cynthia for this one ***

Blue Angel

Blue angel

It's the memory of your warmth
That keeps me alive
When I'm burning
And my world's closing in

Oh I'm on fire
Oh I'm on fire

I hold on to a wheel of burning fear

Oh I'm on fire
Oh I'm on fire

And then the sky is falling in
And I see your eyes

Hiding in the shadows
Hiding in the flames

Oh I'm on fire
Oh I'm on fire
I'm on fire...

It's the memory of your warmth
That keeps me alive
When I'm burning
And my world's closing in

Oh I'm on fire
Oh I'm on fire
I'm on fire

When I feel like I am dying
And soon I shall expire

I'm on fire
Oh I'm on fire
I'm on fire
Why is that
That I feel like I'm on fire

Blue angel

*** Thanx a lot to Cynthia for this one ***

I'm a bird now

Hope There's Someone

Hope there's someone
Who'll take care of me
When I die, will I go

Hope there's someone
Who'll set my heart free
Nice to hold when I'm tired

There's a ghost on the horizon
When I go to bed
How can I fall asleep at night
How will I rest my head

Oh I'm scared of the middle place
Between light and nowhere
I don't want to be the one
Left in there, left in there

There's a man on the horizon
Wish that I'd go to bed
If I fall to his feet tonight
Will allow rest my head

So here's hoping I will not drown
Or paralyze in light
And godsend I don't want to go
To the seal's watershed

Hope there's someone
Who'll take care of me
When I die, Will I go

Hope there's someone
Who'll set my heart free
Nice to hold when I'm tired

My Lady Story

My lady story
My lady story

My lady story
Is one of annihilation
My lady story
Is one of breast amputation

My lady story
My lady story

I'm a hole in love
I'm a bride on fire
I am twisted
Into a starve of wire

My lady story
My lady story

Lie in road for you
And I've been your slave
My womb's an ocean full of
Grief and rage

My lady story
My lady story
My lady story
My lady story

And still you're coaxing me
To come on out and live
Well I'm a crippled dog
I've got nothing to give

My lady story
My lady story
My lady story
My lady story

I'm so broken babe
But I want to see
Some shining eye
Some of my beauty
My lostest beauty
My lostest beauty

For Today I Am A Boy*

Man is the Baby

Yearning for more than a blue day
I enter your new life for me
Burning for the true day
I welcome your new life for me
Forgive me, Let live me
Set my spirit free
Losing, it comes in a cold wave
Of guilt and shame all over me
Child has arrived in the darkness
The hollow triumph of a tree
Forgive me, Let live me
Kiss my falling knee
Forgive me, Let live me
Bless my destiny
Forgive me, Let live me
Set my spirit free
Weakness sown, Overgrown
Man is the baby

You Are My Sister

You are my sister, we were born
So innocent, so full of need
There were times we were friends but times I was so cruel
Each night I'd ask for you to watch me as I sleep
I was so afraid of the night
You seemed to move through the places that I feared
You lived inside my world so softly
Protected only by the kindness of your nature
You are my sister
And I love you
May all of your dreams come true
We felt so differently then
So similar over the years
The way we laugh the way we experience pain
So many memories
But there's nothing left to gain from remembering
Faces and worlds that no one else will ever know
You are my sister
And I love you
May all of your dreams come true
I want this for you
They're gonna come true (gonna come true)

What Can I Do

( Featuring Rufus Wainwright )

What can I do
When the bird's got to die
What can I do
When she's too weak to fly
What can I do
When she's calling my name
She's crying
Mama, Help me to live
What can I do

Fistful of Love

( Featuring Lou Reed )

I was lying in my bed last night staring
At a ceiling full of stars
When it suddenly hit me
I just have to let you know how I feel
We live together in a photograph of time
I look into your eyes
And the seas open up to me
I tell you I love you
And I always will
And I know you can't tell me
I know you can't tell me

So I'm left to pick up
The hints, the little symbols of your devotion
So I'm left to pick up
The hints, the little symbols of your devotion

And I feel your fists
And I know it's out of love
And I feel the whip
And I know it's out of love
And I feel your burning eyes burning holes
Straight through my heart
It's out of love
It's out of love

I accept and I collect upon my body
The memories of your devotion
I accept and I collect upon by body
The memories of your devotion

And I feel your fists
And I know it's out of love
And I feel the whip
And I know it's out of love
And I feel your burning eyes burning holes
Straight through my heart
It's out of love, ooh hoo
It's out of love

Give me a little bit serious love
Give me a little full love
Be full of love

Fists, fists, fists full of love...

Spiralling

( Featuring Devendra Banhart )

Well and I can and I die
I can, I die

Well and I'm freezing
I'm freezing

Well it's a sly curse
A sly curse

Well and I'm spiralling
I'm spiralling

In my broken hearted game
I've got all my fives
I've got all my ones to choose from
My cave, waiting for you
Waiting for you

I'm ravage like a dog and beat
I'm gone, gone
In Carthusian Red I get cut along
I am, I'm undone
I am undone

Where go, where now
Can't stand
If I can, can die
I'm freezing
Sly curse
I'm spiralling

In my cruel life God poisoned
I was born, born
Not a girl and not a jewel
I am, I am some son
I am some bum

Where go, where now
Can't stand
If I can, can die
I'm freezing
Sly curse
I'm spiralling
Spiralling [x4]

Held Red Rook [x6]

* Carthusian Red is a monastery of the particularly austere Carthusian monastic order. Red Rook is a reference, I think, to the old Parker Brothers card game, Rook; most decks featured a picture of a bird on the front, and different sets of decks were colored, some red. 'I've got all my fives' because it makes since in context of the Rook: a five is the lowest scoring card in the game.

Free at last

( North american Slaves Spiritual Chant Gospel )

Julia Yasuda :

Way down yonder in the graveyard walk
I thank God I'm free at last
Me and my Jesus going to meet and talk
I thank God I'm free at last

On my knees when the light pass'd by
I thank God I'm free at last
Tho't my soul would rise and fly
I thank God I'm free at last

Some of these mornings, bright and fair
I thank God I'm free at last
Goin' meet my Jesus
In the middle of the air
I thank God I'm free at last

The Crying Light

*** Thanx a lot to www.antonyandthejohnsons.net for these lyrics ***

Her eyes are underneath the ground

Her eyes are underneath the ground
I have heard the crying sound

No one can stop you now
No one can stop you now

Her eyes are basking in the sun
No one knows why she did the things sheís done

Ocean, swallow me now
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
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

Epilepsy is dancing
Sheís the Christ now departing
And Iím finding my rhythm
As I twist in the snow

All the metal burned in me
Down the brain of my river
That fire was searching
For a waterway home

I cry ďglitter is love!Ē
My eyes pinned inside
With green jewels
Hanging like Christmas stars
From a golden vein

As I came to a screaming
Hold me while Iím dreaming
For my fingers are curling
And I cannot breathe

Then I cried in the kitchen
How Iíd seen your ghost witching
As a soldering blue line
Between my eyes

I cry ďglitter is love!Ē
My eyes
Pinned inside
Sea green jewels
Hanging like Christmas stars
From a golden vein

Cut me in quadrants
Leave me in the corner
Oh now itís passing
Oh now Iím dancing

One dove

One dove
Youíre the one Iíve been waiting for
Through the dark fall
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
Iím the one youíve been waiting for
From your skin I am born again
I wasnít 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

Kiss my name
Mama in the afterglow
When the grass is green with grow
And my tears have turned to snow

Iím 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
Iím 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

The crying light

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
Inside
My self
The secret grows
My own
Shelter
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

Another World

I need another place
Will there be peace
I need another world
This oneís nearly gone

Still have too many dreams
Never seen the light
I need another world
A place where I can go

Iím gonna miss the sea
Iím gonna miss the snow
Iím gonna miss the bees
Iíll miss the things that grow

Iím gonna miss the trees
Iím gonna miss the sun
Iíll miss the animals
Gonna miss you all

I need another place
Will there be peace
I need another world
This ones nearly gone

Iím gonna miss the birds
Singing all their songs
Iím gonna miss the wind
Been kissing me so long

Another world
Another world
Another world

Daylight and the sun

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

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

Daylight in my heart
Daylight in the trees
Daylight kissing everything
She can see

Oh your dream
Here on the water
Warm the sand
The seagulls calling
Kissed by kindness
Kissed by kindness
Kissed by kindness
Kissed by kindness

Oh your dream
Here on the water
Warm the sand
The seagulls calling
Kissed by kindness
Kissed by kindness
Kissed by kindness
Kissed by kindness

You gave me this
Your fire becomes a kiss
You gave me this
Your fire becomes a kiss...

Aeon

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

Aeonís eyes forlorn
He contains the storm
Heís the pasture of my dawn

Oh aeon
My baby boy
Oh aeon will take care of me

Hold my father
For it is myself
Without him I wouldnít exist

Oh aeon
Love my father
For my father is myself

Hold that man
In your tender clutch
Hold that man I love so much

Dust and water

Oh I love the coal
I love the way youíre waiting
I love your kind patience

I told you this day would come
Did you think Iíd leave you here
Forever

How long can dust wait
Ask the moon
But ask him soon

Everglade

When Iím floating in the water
And your eyes are lilies all around
When Iím 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 Iím peeping in a parlour of trees
And the leaves are winking all around
ďIím home,Ē my heart sobs in my veins
But brains they play the softest games

Fingers kiss the string
Mouth taste the blade
Of everglade


Swanlights

Everything is new

Every everything
Everything is new
Every everything
Everything is new
Every everything
Everything is new

I cried everything
Everything is new
I cried everything
Everything is new
Every everything
Everything is new

The Great White Ocean

Swim with me my mama when I die
In the ocean of death I will cry
If I am not with my family
You could be my friend eternally

Swim with me my Sister when I die
In the great white ocean we must try
Try to find a way that we can see
See each others faces in the sea

Swim with me my Brother when I die
I don't ever want to say good-bye
If you do go first or if it's me
Oh my darling brother, swim with me

Swim to me my Father when I die
Please remember Father, we must try
Try not to forget our family
Oh my darling Father, rescue me

Ghost

Ghost! Ghost!
Leap from my heart
And find your way

Chase the river
Chase the sunlight
Do not stay

Open yawns the sky before
Dance toward a light so gay
Do not waste a thought behind you
Don't pity this useless clay

Snake! Snake!
Shed your skin
And go away

Leave behind your shadow's memory
Leave me, this is your day

I'm in Love

I've been touched, I've been touched
And it's too much, it's too much

I'm in the ocean, in the sea
The red choral caressing me

You need only say the word
I'll kiss you like a hummingbird

I've been touched, I've been touched
And it's too much, it's too much
I'm feeling something

I've been walking for a long time
I never did commit no crime

And all my dreams, they all came true
The day I lay my head on you

The day that you cracked open and died
Ten black boys flew free from inside

And you need only say the word
Gonna kiss you like a hummingbird

I don't know where I'm going so
I'm gonna lay down in the snow

And I feel touched, I feel touched
Ten black boys flew free from inside
And it's too much, it's too much

I'm in the ocean, in the sea
The red choral caressing me
It's only you

Swanlights

Oh I'm living
It's a golden thing
It means everything

I'm gifted
By your grace
It's the Swanlights
In the water
On that shining face

Oh it's such a mystery to me
Oh it's such a mystery to me

What I have seen
Faces in my dreams
Oh the Swanlights
The Swanlights

When I close my eyes
And dream Swans come
When in love I lean
On the Swanlight song

Oh it's such a mystery to me
Oh it's such a mystery to me

I'm dancing with their necks
Dancing neck to neck

The Spirit Was Gone

The spirit was gone from her body
Forever had always been inside
That shell had always been intertwined
And now were disintwined
It's hard to understand

The spirit was gone from her body
Forever had always been inside
That shell had always been intertwined
And now were disintwined
It's hard to understand, oh

The spirit was gone
The spirit was gone
The spirit was gone
The spirit was gone
The spirit was gone
The spirit was gone
The spirit was gone
And now were disintwined
It's hard to understand

Thank You For Your Love

Oh thank you for your love
Thank you for your love
When all was falling in the seizure of pain
Oh thank you for your love

Oh thank you for your love
Oh thank you for your love
When I was lost in the dark darkness
Oh thank you for your love

I want to thank you, oh
I want to thank you, oh
I want to thank you, oh
I want to thank you, oh

Thank you, thank you

Oh thank you for your love
Oh thank you for your love
When my mind was broken into a thousand pieces
Oh thank you for your love

I want to thank you, oh
I want to thank you, oh
I want to thank you, oh
I want to thank you, oh

Thank you, thank you
I thank youÖ

Salt Silver Oxygen

The flying horse carries me across the sky
Triumvirate swallows make our breath
Can we grow a sun
A water run
The Great White Water?
Every slum an ox inside it
Sweet crevice for miniature flies?

Dancing with her casket
Christ becomes wife
The easy dust is dancing, too
It splits the waterside in two

Elect the Salt Mother
For She's a Selective Christ

Punch her ghost!
For shore she'll sigh
And watch the window gifts rise

Christinaís Farm

I got kissed by a turtle dove
Upon a cold Paris manger
I was waking up to my love
First moment dawning danger

Everything was new
Every sock and shoe
My face and your face
Tenderly renewed
Tenderly renewed

I awoke to find a whiteness inside
Everything did shine, slyly, from each body
Halos from within, diamonds the year in
As we crossed to where the virgin mary
Moves over the fields
Here and there, she kneels
Sighing sweet relief upon the prairie

Everything was new
Every sock and shoe
My face and your face tenderly renewed

As the rich winds blow
Kiss each flamingo
Tussle reckless trains
Of the wild white horses

And at night the owl
Streaks the field and howls
She seizes a kitten
Stops wind aghast to hear them shudder

Everything was new
Every sock and shoe
My face and your face tenderly renewed

Tenderly renew
Tenderly renew
Tenderly renew
Tenderly renew

Everything was new
Every sock and shoe
My face and your face tenderly renewed

Tenderly renew
Tenderly renew
Tenderly renew
Tenderly renew...

Afraid

( Nico Cover / Live )

Cease to know or to tell
Or to feel or to be your own
Cease to know or to tell
Or to feel or to be your own

Have someone else's will as your own
Have someone else's will as your own

You are beautiful and you are alone
You are beautiful and you are alone

Often the ardorless and plain
Reward your grace
Often the ardorless and plain
Reward your grace

Confuse your hunger capture the fake
Confuse your hunger capture the fake

Banish the faceless reward your grace
Banish the faceless reward your grace

Cease to know or to tell
Or to feel or to be your own
Cease to know or to tell

As Tears Go By

( Live cover / m. jagger/k. richards )

It is the evening of the day
I sit and watch the children play
Smiling faces I can see
But it's not for me
I sit and watch
As tears go by

My riches canít buy everything
I want to hear the children sing
All I hear is the sound
Of rain falling on the ground
I sit and watch
As tears go by

It is the evening of the day
I sit and watch the children play
Doiní things I used to do
They think are new
I sit and watch
As tears go by

Beautiful Boyz

( Cocorosie - Noah's Ark LP )

Antony :
Those, those beautiful boys
Those, those beautiful boys

Cocorosie :
Born illegitimately
To a whore, most likely
He became an orphan
Oh what a lovely orphan he was
Sent to the reformatory
Ten years old, was his first glory
Got caught stealing from a nun
Now his love story had begun

Thirty years he spent wandering
A devil's child with dove wings
He went to prison
In every country he set foot in
Oh how he loved prison
How awfully lovely was prison

Antony :
All those beautiful boys
Pimps and queens and criminal queers
All those beautiful boys
Tattoos of ships and tattoos of tears

Cocorosie :
His greatest love was executed
The pure romance was undisputed
Angelic hoodlums and holy ones
Angelic hoodlums and holy ones

Antony :
All those beautiful boys
Pimps and queens and criminal queers
All those beautiful boys
Tattoos of ships and tattoos of tears

All those beautiful boys
Pimps and queens and criminal queers
All those beautiful boys
Tattoos of ships and tattoos of tears

All those beautiful boys
Beautiful boys...
All those beautiful boys
Beautiful boys...

Those beautiful boys...

Blind

( Hercules & love affair LP )

As a child I knew
That the stars could only get brighter
And we would get closer
Get closer

As a child I knew
That the stars could only get brighter
That we could get closer
Leaving this darkness behind

Now that I'm older
The stars should lie upon my face
When I found myself alone
Find myself alone

Now that I'm older
The stars should lie upon my face
But when I find myself alone
I feel like I am blind

Feel it
Feel it
Feel it
Feel it
Like I am blind

I wish the stars could shine now
For they are closer, they are near
But they will not present my present
They will not present my present

I wish the light could shine now
For it is closer, it is near
But it will not present my present
And it makes my past and future painfully clear

To hear you now
To see you now
I can look outside myself
I must examine my breath
And look inside

To see you now
To hear you now
I can look outside myself
I must examine my breath
And look inside
Because I feel blind
Because I feel blind

I feel it
I feel it
I feel it
I feel it
Like I am blind
The movie will
And feel it
Oh I feel it
Oh feel it...

Candy says

( Live / Lou Reed Cover )

Candy says
I've come to hate my body
And all that it requires
In this world

Candy says
I'd like to know completely
What others so discretely
Talk about

I'm gonna watch the blue birds fly
Over my shoulder
I'm gonna watch them pass me by
Maybe when I'm older

What do you think I'd see
If I could walk away from me

Candy says
I hate the quiet places
That cause the smallest taste
Of what will be

Candy says
I hate the big decisions
That cause endless revisions
In my mind

I'm gonna watch the blue birds fly
Over my shoulder
I'm gonna watch them pass me by
Maybe when I'm older

What do you think I'd see
If I could walk away from me

Child Of God

I know a man who curses his brother
I know a man who lives for no other
Always chasing after money
Thinks a poor man is funny
It's hard, it's hard to believe he's a child of God

I know a woman who steals from her mother
That same woman she gets drunk from one day to another
Kicks her kids out in the street
There's another man under their father's sheets
I find it hard, I find it hard, I find it hard
It's hard to believe she's a child of God

I know some people who go to church on sunday
These same people, they wear a sheet on monday
Talk about justice being free
They're watching lynchings so easily
I find it hard, I find it hard, I find it hard
It's hard to believe these are children of God

I find it hard to believe right now
These people call themselves children of God

Crackagen

( Another World EP )

Poor me
Little rivers from my hands
Pool at the bottom of the stairs
My face
Oh the cities in my eyes
Doves in the sky
Oh the crackagen

The rain water came from father's eyes
He was made of stone
Glorious
Now watch as the curtain came down
And wet the hungry rabbits
Flooding the land

My heart
Oh the twist of cruel cotton
To bring me free
Dry eyes
By the sun the waters rise
Dirt will crack again
Dirt will crack again

Del suo veloce volo

( With Franco Battiato from the album Fleurs 2 )

E chissŗ dove sarai amico
Ripensandoti ti rivedo in me
La visione che avevi dellíamore
La tua ironia, e chissŗ dove sarai

Spesso da ragazzi passavamo insieme
Sere inutili e fu in un giorno di
Festa per gioco lo so, io lo so
Lessi nella tua mano, vidi sulla mano
La tua fine...

E cosž oggi, dalla mia memoria,
Scelgo il meglio della vita
E del suo veloce volo
Che finisce come, sempre accade,
Troppo presto

Qualcosa un poí di te
Mi Ť rimasto dentro
Indimenticabile per gioco
Lo so io lo so
Lessi nella tua mano,
Vidi sulla mano
La tua fine...

Dirt will crack again

( Live song )

For me
Little rivers from my hands
Pool at the bottom of the stairs

My face
Oh, the cities in my eyes
Doves in the sky

Oh, the crack again

The rainwater
Came from father's eyes
He was made of stone

Glorious
Watch as the curtain came down
And wet the hungry rabbits
Flooding the land

My heart
Oh, the twist of cruel cold turn
To wring me free
Dry eyes by the subtle waters' rise

Dirt will crack again
Dirt will crack again

Dream About Who You Are

( Live, Rathaus Jazzfest, Wien. 8th July 2005 )

Dream about who you are

Hold on to who you are

Shake it up for who you want to be

Easy

( Hercules & love affair LP )

We all share the light
It is so freely ours
I pray my friend
Sun comes down easy
Sun comes down easy

I am not a fisherman
But I do know the sea
I say to him
Waves come down easy
Waves come down easy
Waves come down easy
Waves come down easy

The clouds that hang above
They nourish, they feed
I pray my friend
Rain comes down easy
Rain comes down easy

There is a rhythm
She plays her drums her songs
This night will come
This day will end
We must go easy
We must go easy
We must go easy
We must go easy

Walk, walk slowly
Don't run
There is nowhere to get to
Walk, walk slowly
No ???
Stay with your family

Walk, walk slowly
Don't run
There is nowhere to get to
Walk, walk slowly
No ???
Stay with your family

Walk, walk slowly
Don't run
There is nowhere to get to
Walk, walk slowly
No ???
Stay with your family

Walk, walk slowly
Don't run
There is nowhere to get to
Walk, walk slowly
No ???
Stay with your family

This day she gives us
It is a gift
Honor your family

This day she gives us
It is a gift
Honor your family

This day she gives us
It is a gift
Honor your family

Find the rhythm of your love

I live my life on the line between darkness
And borderlined angels hold me and whisper my self loathing
Great force of everlast rumbles like churning mountains

Behind the gores of mother's eye
Behind the gores of mother's eye
Behind the gores of mother's eye

Now my ocean's, my inner lake's, lost in too much water
Close my eyes to see I'm blinded by the salt more
And i'm unable, lost my body, whispers from my past
Cobra opens up a storm looks the two-bit in the eye
What mother, what mother, what mother am I?

Kiss of a child in a bonfire
Kiss of a maggot in a sea of pigs
Kiss of a child with a maggot in his voice

My love unvailed your kindness, hold me, forever rest
Find the rhythm of your love for me
Find the rhythm of your love for me
Find the rhythm of your love

Find the rhythm of your love for me
Find the rhythm of your love for me
Find the rhythm of your love for me
Find the rhythm of your love for me

*** Thanx a lot to Jared for this one ***

Fistful of Love

( The Lake EP  )

I was lying in my bed last night
Staring at a ceiling full of stars
When it suddenly hit me
I just have to let you know how I feel

We live together in a photograph of time
I look into your eyes
And the seas open up to me
I tell you I love you
And I always will

And I know that you can't tell me
And I know that you can't tell me

So I'm left to pick up
The hints, the little symbols of your devotion
So I'm left to pick up
The hints, the little symbols of your devotion

I feel your fists
And I know it's out of love
And I feel the whip
And I know it's out of love
I feel your burning eyes burning holes
Straight through my heart

It's out of love
It's out of love

I accept and I collect upon my body
The memories of your devotion

I accept and I collect upon my body
The memories of your devotion

I feel your fists
And I know it's out of love
And I feel the whip
And I know it's out of love
I feel your burning eyes burning holes
Straight through my heart

It's out of love
It's out of love...

Forest of love

( You are my sister EP )

I'm a girl
Five years old
God don't take my boy
Give him back
My brother
Murderer or beauty

Don't send him to the slaughter house
Don't send him into water snakes
He needs from the forest
The forest of love

I will live
He can live
Maybe we can be there
Forest is good
Home inside
Safest, warmest bed

Birds drinking
From the stream
Hardened smell of grow
Trees all alive
And will cry
Washed by songs entirely

Don't send him to the ocean cold
Don't send him to the water afraid
He needs from the forest
The forest of love

I'm in the forest of love
I'm in there, the forest of love
Oh the here and now
Oh my brother

Forgiveness

( Elisa feat. Antony )

Iím lost and scared to live this life
I thought Iíd always be strong
This rage this dark side I donít want to feel
Lays there, lays there, lays there

There on the bottom inside
Looking lost like a child
But I know that youíre mine
We only need

Forgiveness
Our key to the world
Forgiveness
Iím frightened to deserve
Forgiveness
All that we need
Itís forgiveness
I am not sure I know

It was the love untaught
Trapped in your mind
So empty with me
A silent stone that struck my heart
While I looked for a sign, a sign

You felt the pain
You felt the fear
But you chose not to see
Made it your destiny
Is it time for

Forgiveness
For we have paid
Forgiveness
Is our key to the world
Forgiveness
For the love untaught
Itís forgiveness
Iíll be waiting for

Oh only you
Forgiveness
For we have paid
Forgiveness
Is our key to the world
Forgiveness
For the love untaught
Forgiveness Iíll be waiting for

Frankenstein

( Hope there's someone EP / Live )

I am falling into a chasm
I'm falling with you in my arms
No wait, these are your arms
Your arms of love that I'm falling into
Is this a vision of love?

When I was a young boy
Mama said, "You better watch out for the fall."
But now that I'm a grown woman
And I know, I know, I know
I can see the cold
I can see the cold to the place where he is born

Come on baby, let's fall, fall into the chasm
With me, fall into love
Cos I know that the vision, it will never shatter
For as long as i hold onto you in these cold arms

There's something in these eyes too close for comfort
But now that I'm a grown woman
And I know, I know, I know, I know
I know the call to the place where it's born
You can see these arms are big and strong now baby
Well I'll prove to you these arms can hold you tight

It's cold, leave baby, it's cold, it's time
This is a vision of love and i'm freezing
I'm falling into cold, come on let's go

Hope Mountain

( Another World EP )

Hope Mountain
Is the place where
The girl first dawned her face

For the crowd
That was gathered
Outside her dark white cave

And then scores of
Soaring eagles
Lift her to the breaking day

We are waiting
And we're watching
The waters as they sigh
Hope Mountain
Is the place where
The people come to cry
She was born
Like a diamond
Out of the mountainside
She treasures our
Brokenness
And will raise us from the tide
We laid there
Gently resting
On the golden green
In the falls
Of the foxes
The hungry and relieved
It's time to
Take a wild flight
And let things start again
It's time
To produce what's right
And start to make amends

Look
Look in the water
Look who it is
It's just Jesus
This time she's a girl
This time she's a girl

How god moved at twilight

( Michael Cashmore "The Snow Abides" feat. Antony )

And God in whose wings
I hoped simple flowers
Oil spread upon the face
Of a wooden moon
The loss
Unreal, empty
The seat the seal
White sheets unbloodied
Proof of touchless dawn
Picked at sunlight
Snow, longing, love and stones
And slip as your dark eyes
Eclipsed me all
You smiled, the pool is empty
Pale form of joy
Without you there's no morning dawn
No arise, no rose lies
Beyond the smudged sky of your eyes
But lilies hide
Like snow fading oceans
Sealife dazzling with tiny lights
As the river is the sea
And is no more
Whilst clouds drift by
While flowers die
God I heard them say is love
I dreamed your eyes reflect my blood

I Defy

( Joan As Police Woman ft. Antony on Real Life LP, 2006 )

I defy I love your way
How could it be different
I defy I love your way
(well) how could it be different

Now I'm kissing the real you
Now I'm kissing the real you

Will I get through my dark day
Can you hear me
Can you hear me

Ooh oh ooh oh ooh oh ooh oh
How could it be different

I see the stars around your face
They never seem to hurt at all
The stars around your face
They never seem to hurt at all

Now I'm missing the real you
Now I'm missing the real you

Well, I got through my dark day
Did you fear me
Did you fear for me

Ooh oh ooh oh ooh oh ooh oh
How could it be different

I don't want to see my baby fall
It's the dawn I feel becoming ever after
This is my matter, dear

I defy I love your way
How could it be different
I defy, I love your way
How could it be different

Well I got to know you today
And I adore you
I adore you

Oh now I'm loving you
Oh now I'm loving you
How could it be different

Oh now I'm loving you
Oh now I'm loving you
How could it be different

Idumea

( With Current 93 )

And am I born to die?
And lay this body down?
And as my trembling spirits fly
Into a world unknown

A Land of deeper shade
Unpierced by human thought
The dreary region of the dead
Where all things are forgot

Soon as from earth I go
What shall become of me?
Eternal happiness or woe
Must then my fortune be

Waked by the trumpet`s sound
I from my grave shall rise
And see the judge with glory crowned
And see the flaming skies

I fell in love with a dead boy

I find you with red tears in your eyes
I ask you what is your name
You offer no reply
Should I call a doctor
Before I fear you might be dead
But I just lay down beside you
And held your hand

I fell in love with you
Now you're my one, only one
'Cause all my life I've been so blue
But in that moment you fulfilled me

Now I'll tell all my friends
I fell in love with a dead boy
Now I'll tell my family
I wish you could have met him

Now I write letters to Australia
Now I throw bottles out to sea
I whisper the secret in the ground
No one's gonna take you away from me

I fell in love with a dead boy
Oh, such a beautiful boy
I fell in love with a dead boy
Oh, such a beautiful boy

Oh, such a beautiful boy
I'm asking
Are you a boy or a girl
Are you a boy or are you a girl
Are you a boy or are you a girl

Are you a boy
Are you a girl
Are you a boy
Are you a girl
Are you a boy
Are you a girl

*** Thanx a lot to Dexter & Myah for this one ***

If It Be Your Will

( Leonard Cohen Tribute )

If it be your will
That I speak no more
And my voice be still
As it was before

I will speak no more
I shall abide until
I am spoken for
If it be your will

If it be your will
That a voice be true
From the broken hill
I will sing to you
From this broken hill
All your praises they shall ring
If it be your will
To let me sing

From this broken hill
All your praises they shall ring
If it be your will
To let me sing

If it be your will
If there is a choice
Let the rivers fill
Let the hills rejoice
Let your mercy spill
On all these burning hearts in hell
If it be your will
To make us well

And draw us near
And bind us tight
All your children here
In their rags of light
In our rags of light
All dressed to kill
And end this night
If it be your will
And end this night
If it be your will

If it be your will
If it be your will
If it be your will...

Imagine

(John Lennon cover / Thank Your For Your Love EP)

I imagine there's no Heaven
It was easy when I tried
No hell below me
Above me only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

I imagine there's no countries
It wasn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join me
And the world will live as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
Now I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

I Was Young When I Left Home

( Bob Dylan Cover / With Bryce Dessner on "Dark Was The Night" LP )

I was young when i left home
And I been out a-ramblin' round
And I never wrote a letter to my home
To my home, Lord
Lord, to my home
And I never wrote a letter to my home

It was just the other day
I was bringing home my pay
When I met an old friend I used to know
Said, "Your mother is dead and gone
And your sisters all gone wrong
And your daddy needs you home right away"

Not a shirt on my back
Not a penny on my name
But I can't go home this way
This way, lord
Lord, this way
And I can't go home this way

If you miss the train I'm on
Count the days I'm gone
You will hear that whistle blow hundred miles
Hundred miles, honey baby, Lord, Lord, Lord
And you'll hear that whistle blow hundred miles

And I'm playin' on a track, ma'd come an' woop me back
On them trusses down by Ol' Jim McKay's
When I pay the debt I own to the commissary store
I will pawn my watch and chain and go home
Go home, Lord, Lord, Lord
I will pawn my watch and chain and go home

Used to tell my ma sometimes
When I see them riding blind
Gonna make me a home out in the wind
In the wind, Lord
Lord, in the wind
Make me a home out in the wind

I don't like it in the wind
I go back home again
But I can't go home this way
This way, Lord
Lord, this way
And I can go home this way

I was young when I left home
And I been out rambling round
And I never wrote a letter to my home
To my home, Lord, Lord, Lord
And I never wrote a letter to my home

Just one star

( Hope there's someone EP )

I am just one star caught in a shine
My friends, my mama loves me, but it's not enough
I wanted to be more, more than i could bare
I am just one star born of grace and soon to die
But if i can just learn how to love then i could live
My honey, my little baby, my honey

*** Thanx a lot to Jared for this one ***

Knockin' on heaven's door

( Bob Dylan Cover / I'm not there OST )

Mama, take this badge off of me
I can't use it anymore.
It's gettin' dark, much too dark to see
I feel like I'm knocking on heaven's door

Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door

Mama, put my guns in the ground
I can't shoot them anymore
That long black cloud is comin' down
I feel I'm knockin' on heaven's door

Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door

Mama, wipe the blood from my face
I'm sick and tired of the war
Don't know if it's night or if it's the sun rising high
Scared of knockin' on heaven's door

Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door

Landslide

(Fleetwood Mac cover)

I took my love, I took it down
I climbed a mountain and I turned around
And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills
'Til the landslide brought me down
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Oh mirror in the sky
What is love
Can the child within my heart rise above
Can I sail through the changing ocean tides
Can I handle the seasons of my life

Well, I've been afraid of changing
'Cause I built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I'm getting older, too

Well, I've been afraid of changing
'Cause I built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I'm getting older, too
And I'm getting older, too

Oh take my love, take it down

Love Letters

( Ketty Lester Cover / Behold The Lamb Of God Demos / 1995 )

Love letters straight from your heart
Keep us so near while apart
I'm not alone in the night
When I can have all the love you write

I memorize every line
And I kiss the name that you sign
And, darling, then I read again right from the start
Love letters straight from your heart

Love Will Come To Be

( Behold The Lamb Of God Demos / 1995 )

When I had nothing left to give is when I started giving
When I had no one left to love is when I started loving
When I had nothing left to feel is when I started feeling
For the first time
For the first time

Listen, listen, listen to me
Love will come to be

Ask the stars in heaven

Lowlands Low

( Traditional / Bryan Ferry Feat. Antony )

Our packet is the island lass
Low lands lowlands lowlands low
There's a laddie howlin' at the main topmast
Low lands lowlands lowlands low
The old man he's from Barbados
Low lands lowlands lowlands low
He's got the name of Hammer Toes
Low lands lowlands lowlands low
He gives is us bread as hard as brass
Low lands lowlands lowlands low
Our junk's as salt as a bailer's arse
Low lands lowlands lowlands low

The monkey's raised in a soldier's clothes
Low lands lowlands lowlands low
Now, where he got 'em from, no one knows
Low lands lowlands lowlands low
We'll haul 'em high and let 'em dry
Low lands lowlands lowlands low
We'll trice 'em up into the sky
Low lands lowlands lowlands low
It's up aloft that yard must go
Low lands lowlands lowlands low
Up aloft from down below
Low lands lowlands lowlands low

Lowlands, me boys, and up she goes
Low lands lowlands lowlands low
Get changed, me boys, for your shore-going clothes
Low lands lowlands lowlands low
Low lands lowlands lowlands low
Low lands lowlands lowlands low
Low lands lowlands lowlands low
Low lands lowlands lowlands low

My juvenile

( BjŲrk Featuring Antony )

Down the corridor
I send warmth, I send warmth
Down the staircase
I send warmth, I send warmth

Thank you for again
To get to be able
To send warmth, to send warmth
Perhaps I set you too free, too fast, too young

But the intentions were pure
But the intentions were pure

My juvenile
My juvenile
My juvenile

I truly say
You are my biggest love
I clumsily tried to
Free you from me
One last embrace
To tie a sacred ribbon

This is an offer to better the last let-go
This is an offer to better the last let-go
This is an offer to better the last let-go

The intentions were pure

My juvenile (my juvenile)
My juvenile (my juvenile)
My juvenile (my juvenile)

My Lord, My Love

(Thank You For Your Love EP)

The crippled cry, gone astray
In the park or on the lawn
My lord, my love
Take care of those you're dreaming of

My sister put it right
My mind, lock me down at night
My lord, my love
Take care of the ones you say you love

When we were children in the hay
We felt your eyes were upon us
My lord, my love
Help me to remember

My sister put it right
My mind, lock me down at night
My lord, my love
Take care of the ones you say you love

My fear is to put it right
My mind, donít lock me down at night
My lord, my love
Take care of the ones you say you love

Mysteries of Love

( Lyrics by David Lynch, Music by Angelo Badalamenti / Live )

Sometimes
A wind blows
And you and I
Float
In love
And kiss forever
In a darkness
And the mysteries of love
Come clear
And dance
In light
In you
In me
And show
That we
Are Love

Sometimes
A wind blows
And you and I
Float
In love
And kiss forever
In a darkness
And the mysteries of love
Come clear
And dance
In light
In you
In me
And show
That we
Are Love

Old Whore's Diet

( Duet with Rufus Wainwright )

An old whore's diet
Gets me going in the morning
Ain't nothing like it
Gets me going in the morning

To say I love you
Gets me going where I want to
Oh, gets me going
Oh, gets me going in the morning

An old whore's diet
Gets me going in the morning
Ain't nothing like it
Gets me going in the morning

To say I love you
Gets me going where I want to
Oh, gets me going
Oh, gets me going in the morning

Hell, either here or Hell will do
Either here or Hell will employ you
Suicidal assistance
An old whore's diet

One More Try

( My Robot Friend ft. Antony - Dial Zero, 2006 )

I wanna make another start but you never try
I let you get inside my heart but you just pass me by
I scream and fight just to let you know
And every night I dream Iíll go
But all I ever seem to do is break down and cry

If you wanna give it one more try
I will always answer when you call
Iíll never learn to say goodbye
At all, at all, at all

Every single thing you promise is another lie
But I donít ever want to know so I don't ask you why
You look the part but you let me down
And from the start you just messed around
But something inside my heart wonít let it die

If you wanna give it one more try
I will always answer when you call
Iíll never learn to say goodbye
At all, at all, at all

If you wanna give it one more try
I will always answer when you call
Iíll never learn to say goodbye
At all, at all, at all

*** Thanx a lot to Billy & O for this one ***

Paddy's Gone

My wrists hurt
My heart's empty
Paddy's gone
For a long time

Loved that man
Scared without him
Paddy's gone
For a long time

My wrists hurt
My heart's empty
Paddy's gone
For a long time

Loved that man
Scared without him
Paddy's gone
For a long time

My wrists hurt
My heart's empty
Paddy's gone
For a long time

Loved that man
Scared without him
Paddy's gone

Perfect day

( Lou Reed Cover )

Just a perfect day
Drink sangria in the park
Then later, when it gets dark
We go home

Just a perfect day,
Feed animals in the zoo
Then later, a movie, too
And then home

Oh itís such a perfect day
Iím glad I spent it with you
Oh such a perfect day
You just keep me hanging on
You just keep me hanging on

Just a perfect day
Problems all left alone
Weekenders on our own
Itís such fun

Just a perfect day
You made me forget myself
I thought I was someone else
Someone good

Oh itís such a perfect day
Iím glad I spent it with you
Oh such a perfect day
You just keep me hanging on
You just keep me hanging on

Youíre going to reap just what you sow
Youíre going to reap just what you sow
Youíre going to reap just what you sow
Youíre going to reap just what you sow

Poorest Ear

( You are my sister EP )

Lain all dry
My saddest day
Hung till Poole, when worn, ran away
It came cold, feels so good
Treats my soldier for I should
And I cry, they laugh
My soldier's dead
Took all people poor instead

And I cry, they laugh
My soldier's dead
Took off, be born a boy instead
Poorest, poorest ear
Alone for so many years
Slightest chance of falling grace
But so long till you'll be found

Poorest, poorest ear

Pressing On

(Bob Dylan cover / Thank Your For Your Love EP)

Well, I'm pressing on
Yes, I'm pressing on
Well, I'm pressing on
Until the higher calling of my Lord

Well, I'm pressing on
Yes, I'm pressing on
Well, I'm pressing on
Until the higher calling of my Lord

Many try to stop me
Shake me up in my mind
Say, "Prove to me that He is Lord
Show me a sign"
What kind of sign they need
When it all comes from within
When what's lost has been found
What's to come has already been

Well, I'm pressing on
Yes, I'm pressing on
Well, I'm pressing on
Until the higher calling of my Lord

Well, I'm pressing on
Yes, I'm pressing on
Well, I'm pressing on
Until the higher calling of my Lord

Shake the dust off of your feet
Don't look back
Nothing can hold you down
Nothing that you lack
Temptation's not an easy thing
Adam given the devil reign
Because he sinned, I got no choice
It run in my vein

Well, I'm pressing on
Yes, I'm pressing on
Well, I'm pressing on
Until the higher calling of my Lord

Well, I'm pressing on
Yes, I'm pressing on
Well, I'm pressing on
Until the higher calling of my Lord

Well, I'm pressing on
Yes, I'm pressing on
I'm pressing on, I'm pressing on, I'm pressing on
Well, I'm pressing on
Until the higher calling of my Lord

Raise Me Up

( Hercules & love affair LP )

My secret love
Keeps me awake at night
My secret love of the man
My secret fight

They took you down
Then took your face down
Then fucked you over and around
You kissed the ground

Oh raise me up
I forgot to dance your name
Oh raise me up
I'll never dance again

You're the one
I waited for your return
I slept with rocks
I slept with stones
Stone was my home

Energy
Life danced right out of me
When my father busted you free
He also killed me

Oh raise me up
To dance upon your head
Oh raise me up
To dance in the holes of your head

Oh raise me up
To dance in the cavities of your eyes
Oh raise me up
To dance in the cavities of your eyes
Oh raise me up
To dance in the cavities of your eyes

You belong, yes you belong
You belong, yes you belong
You belong, yes you belong...

Shake that devil

( Another World EP )

That dog had his way with me
Shake that dog out of the tree
That dog had his way with me
Shake that dog out of the tree

Shake that dog right out of me
That dog, that dog
That dog had his way with me
Shake that dog out of the tree
Shake that dog right out of me
That dog, that dog

That bird came at me with a knife
Told me she wanted my life
Shake that bird out of the tree
So that everyone can see
Shake that bird right of me
That bird, that bird

So that everyone can see
Shake that bird right out of me

That pig made me feel so bad
Shake that pig out of the bush
Now let's give that pig a push
Shake that pig right out of me

Shake that pig out of the bush
Now let's give that pig a push
Shake that pig right out of me

That dog, that dog

Sing for me

( Another World EP )

Mama's lying on the rotten ground
There under the tree
There were the stars in her eyes
And Goldfingers in her hair

And I climbed over the garden wall
Found her swelling in the well
Pulled her out onto the grass
And laid Curlies to her face
To her face, to her face, to her face, to her face

My mama's going to be gone soon
Saw her fall like a fountain of dust
She used to play me around the corner
She chased me to my soft, soft bed
Soft, soft bed, soft, soft bed, soft, soft bed, soft, soft bed

Soft black stars

( I fell in love with a dead boy EP )

Little children snuggle under soft black stars
And if you look into their eyes soft black stars
Deliver them from the book and the letter and the word
And let them read the silence bathed in soft black stars
Let them trace the raindrops under soft black stars
Let them follow whispers and scare away the night
Let them kiss the featherbreath of soft black stars
And let them ride their horses licked by the wind and the snow
And tip-toe into twilight where we all one day will go
Caressed with tenderness and with no fear at all
Their faces shining river gold brushed by soft black stars
And angels' wings shall soothe their cares
And all the birds shall sing at dawn
Blessed and wet with joy
You and i will meet one day
Under the night sky lit by soft black stars

*** Thanx a lot to Brendan & Wendy for this one ***

So Young

( The Ronettes / Live )

I have a boyfriend, he says i'm his only one
We want to get married, but we're so young
So young, can't marry him, no
They say our is love is just a teenage affection
But no one knows our heart direction
So young, can't marry no one, no one, no one
I, I, I, I'm so young, so young
I, I, I'm so young, can't marry no one, no one, no one
Gotta go now, cry myself to sleep
This lovin baby who chants blessed to keep
So young and I can't marry no one, no one, no one
No, no, no, no, no one, no one, no one, no

*** Thanx a lot to Jared for this one ***

Strange fruit

( Live / Billie Holiday Cover )

Southern trees bear strange fruit
Blood on the leaves and blood at the root
Pastoral scene of the gallant south
The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth
Scent of magnolias, sweet and fresh
Then the sudden smell of burning flesh

Here is fruit for the crows to pluck
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck
For the sun to rot, for the trees to drop
Here is a strange and bitter crop

Here is a strange and bitter crop
Here is a strange and bitter crop

Tears tears tears

( Whose are these 7Ē Vinyl )

Tears, tears falling in line
Tears, tears follow the times
Follow the times' trail
Through the mountains to my grave
Where my mom and dad can see me

Tears, tears for the line
Tears, tears giving me time
Now I must let it go
Maybe I could learn to snow
When mamma rain started to grow

Tearz For Animals

( Duet with Cocorosie)

Do you have love for human-kind
Do you have love for human-kind
Do you have love for human-kind

Poison heart oh I tried to swallow
Pistols, night shears, ghost and gallows
Oh you fell as you climbed like a staircase

Wore me down
Wore me down
Wore me down

Solemn seething my old man
Left me breathing black and blue and tan
Hide the feeling youíll be feeling
When the day turns forever into night

Hope for healing if youíre willing
Do you have love for human-kind
(x4)

Orphan girl
Child sing along
Stop the slaughter of our daughters
Poison in the water.

Heart strings broken
Wearily tuned to the moon
Bastard widows bourne the wound
Nameless, faceless black-eyed soul
Slave to sorrow, find your way home

Hope for healing if youíre willing
Hope for healing if youíre willing
Hope for healing if youíre willing

Do you have love for human-kind
Hope for healing if youíre willing
Do you have love for human-kind
Hope for healing if youíre willing

The dull flame of desire

( BjŲrk Featuring Antony )

BjŲrk :
I love your eyes, my dear
Their splendid, sparkling fire

Antony :
When suddenly you raise them so
To cast a swift embracing glance

BjŲrk :
Like lightning flashing in the sky
But there's a charm that is greater still

Antony :
When my love's eyes are lowered
When all is fired by passion's kiss

BjŲrk :
And through the downcast lashes
I see the dull flame of desire

Antony :
And through the downcast lashes
I see the dull flame of desire

BjŲrk :
I love your eyes, my dear
Their splendid, sparkling fire
When suddenly you raise them so
To cast a swift embracing glance

Like lightning flashing in the sky
But there's a charm that is greater still
When my love's eyes are lowered
When all is fired by passion's kiss

And through the downcast lashes
I see the dull flame of desire
And through the downcast lashes
I see the dull flame of desire

Antony :
Dull flame

BjŲrk :
I see the dull flame of desire

Antony :

I see the dull flame

BjŲrk :
I see the dull flame

Antony :
I love your eyes, my dear
Their splendid, sparkling fire
When suddenly you raise them so
To cast a swift embracing glance

Like lightning flashing in the sky
But there's a charm that is greater still
When my love's eyes are lowered
When all is fired by passion's kiss

And through the downcast lashes
I see the dull flame of desire
Through the downcast lashes
I see the dull flame of desire

Antony :
Dull flame

The great ocean of time

( Song for Prada )

Swim with me my mama when I dive in the ocean of death
I will cry if I am not with my family
You could be my friend eternally

Swim with me my sister when I dive in the great white ocean
We must try, try to find a way that we can see
See each others faces in the sea

Swim with me my sister when I dive in the great white ocean
We must try, try to find a way that we can see
See each others faces in the sea

*** Thanx a lot to Berten for this one ***

The guests

( Leonard Cohen / Live )

One by one, the guests arrive
The guests are coming through
The open-hearted many
The broken-hearted few

No one knows where the night is going
No one knows why the wine is flowing
Oh love i need you
I need you
I need you
I need you
Oh . . . I need you now

And those who dance, begin to dance
Those who weep begin
And "welcome, welcome" cries a voice
"let all my guests come in."

No one knows where the night is going
No one knows why the wine is flowing
Oh love i need you
I need you
I need you
I need you
Oh . . . I need you now

And all go stumbling through that house
In lonely secrecy
Saying "do reveal yourself"
Or "why has thou forsaken me?"

No one knows where the night is going
No one knows why the wine is flowing
Oh love i need you
I need you
I need you
I need you
Oh . . . I need you now

All at once the torches flare
The inner door flies open
One by one they enter there
In every style of passion

No one knows where the night is going
No one knows why the wine is flowing
Oh love i need you
I need you
I need you
I need you
Oh . . . I need you now

And here they take their sweet repast
While house and grounds dissolve
And one by one the guests are cast
Beyond the garden wall

No one knows where the night is going
No one knows why the wine is flowing
Oh love i need you
I need you
I need you
I need you
Oh . . . I need you now

Those who dance, begin to dance
Those who weep begin
And those who earnestly are lost
Are lost and lost again

No one knows where the night is going
No one knows why the wine is flowing
Oh love i need you
I need you
I need you
I need you
Oh . . . I need you now

One by the guests arrive
The guests are coming through
The broken-hearted many
The open-hearted few

No one knows where the night is going
No one knows why the wine is flowing
Oh love i need you
I need you
I need you
I need you
Oh . . . I need you now

The Horror Has Gone

( The Lake EP )

The horror has gone, it's become the darkness
The horror has gone, it's become the darkness
The horror has gone, the horror has gone

The fear in my heart has gone forever after
The fear in my heart has gone forever after
The fear has gone, fear has gone

I killed a fish, but I found my baby
I lost my bird and I know it seems crazy
But now I feel we were one
Now I feel we were one, now I feel we were one

The horror has gone, it's become the darkness
The horror has gone, it's become the darkness
The horror has gone, the horror has gone

Horror, the horror, it's gone
The horror, the horror is gone
The horror is gone

*** Thanx a lot to Jared for this one ***

The Lake

( The Lake EP / Edgar Allen Poe )

In youth's spring, it was my lot
To haunt of the wide earth a spot
To which I could not love the less
So lovely was the loneliness
Of a wild lake, with black rock bound
And the tall trees that towered around

But when the night had thrown her pall
Upon that spot as upon all
And the wind would pass me by
In its stilly melody

My infant spirit would awake
To the terror of the lone lake
My infant spirit would awake
To the terror of the lone lake

Yet that terror was not fright
But a tremulous delight
And a feeling undefined
Springing from a darkened mind
Death was in that poisoned wave
And in its gulf a fitting grave
For him who thence could solace bring
To his dark imagining
Whose wildering thought could even make
An Eden of that dim lake

But when the night had thrown her pall
Upon that spot as upon all
And the wind would pass me by
In its stilly melody

My infant spirit would awake
To the terror of the lone lake
My infant spirit would awake
To the terror of the lone lake

Springing from a darkened mind
So lovely was the loneliness
In youth's spring, it was my lot
In its stilly melody
An Eden of that dim lake
An Eden of that dim lake
Lone, lone, lonely...

The snow abides

( Michael Cashmore "The Snow Abides" feat. Antony )

Through the towering streets
Grey flecked with the sun
I am fallen and tumble
Endomed in snow glass orbed Alice eyes
America is dreaming of a restless autumn
Snow abides
When I saw you
My heart arose

Royal black and blue I am not lost
Yet little star
In the doorway I catch a sign
Shuddering still
Oh there is too much, there is too much
And can I
And I cannot, cannot...
Snow abides
When I saw you
My heart arose - ecstatic butterfly
Slipping away
Waving goodbye
Leaving quick silvered fire
In pools on your way

When I exit and I recall your eyes
Leaden depth and dark
Hinting at space
Oh the richness
Too much of everything
And unborn uncreate

To be unborn, to be unborn
To be unborn, to be unborn

Like an angel fallen whilst I saw your eyes
Leaking lights
Follow the clouds drifting like comets
Ten twenty years, where will you sleep?
You move for the sun lie down in blossom
But a body can scarcely hold in
And man may not bear
The gold form angelic
I heard someone whisper
As you ran by me
Waving goodbye

Time will

( Hercules & love affair LP )

Don't lie to me
Don't make it up
Don't snake it up
Don't snake it up
My friend

Stay with me
Lay with me
Be true to me
Be true to me my love

I cannot ???
I cannot ???
I cannot fall ???
My heart it will not stand a ?

I cannot ???
I cannot ???
I cannot fall ???
My heart it will not stand a ?

Now I'm young
I got nothing to lose
I'm gonna follow
I'm following my muse

You're the older one
You're older by now
You're one got some
You're one got some to prove

I cannot ???
Well it's only me now
I cannot change you but time will
My heart it will not stand still
No it will not stand still

Oh it's all in me
Oh it's all in me now
I cannot change you but time will
My heart it will not stand still
No it will not stand still, no

I cannot hold a half a life
I cannot be a half a wife
I cannot hold a half a life
I cannot be a half a wife

I cannot hold a half a life
I cannot be a half a wife
I cannot hold a half a life
I cannot be a half a wife...

Virgin Mary

Joseph he was a macho man
I tried to make him understand
Even I am a human being -
Not some kind of virginal machine

That night we walked in through the door
He told me he was cold and tired
Then he pushed me to the floor
And once again our love expired

But I'm not gonna cry
I'm gonna bite my tongue and try
To dream of immaculate conception

Angels in the sky taught me how to fly
They sing about immaculate conception

No no no no no
No no no no no no
No no no no no
No no no no no no

He screamed: You name's Mary, mild and demure
From your thighs a baby I'll procure

Your name's Mary, mild and demure
From your thighs a baby I'll procure

Your name's Mary, mild and demure
From your thighs a baby I'll procure

Your name's Mary, mild and demure
From your thighs a baby I'll procure

Immaculate conception
All I wanna do is fly away from you
I just wanna get away from you

Now my Joseph was asleep
I decided to take flight
I called a man with donkey
And fled with my baby into the dark night

I said my name's Mary, mild and demure
From my thighs a baby God's procured

I said my name's Mary, mild and demure
From my thighs a baby God's procured

And I heard him on the horizon: MARY!
And I felt him in my parlour: Mary
And I swore I saw him in the leaves
And I swore I saw him in the leaves

*** Thanx a lot to Sonia for this one ***

Where is my power

( Epilepsy is dancing EP )

Where is my power
Is it in the air around me
Is it in my mind
Where is that love that surrounds me

How can I harness all my goodness
And unleash upon the world
Where is my power
I'll take it in the time allowed me

Where is my power
Is it in my mind
How can I harness all my goodness
And unleash it upon the world
I'll take it in the time allowed me

Whose are these

( Whose are these 7Ē Vinyl )

Whose are these
They are not mine
They must come from some other time
Some other place, long ago
I watched the water drawn from snow

These eyes that wince
Not at my face
They grasp memories I dare not trace

These eyes they cry
Songs I don't know
And yet their tune so copious flow

I stole them from your daughter
I stole them from your mother
These hands of the lost child
Their dreams remain defiled
Their dreams remain defiled

You Are The Treasure

(Thank You For Your Love EP)

You are the treasure
You are the dream
You are the one I've been waiting for

You are forever
You are my friend
You are a river of milk to me

You are the treasure
You are the dream
You are the one I've been waiting for

You are forever
You are my friend
You are a river of milk to me

You are the treasure
You are the dream
You are the one I've been waiting for

You are forever
You are my friend
You are a river of milk to me

You are forever
You are my friend
You are a river of milk to me
 

You Belong

( Hercules & love affair LP )

The lights they call me
Call me to your side
The lights they blind me
They take my sight

Will you restore me
Grace my senses again
The lights they blind me
Soon he descends

You belong to him tonight
There is nothing I can do
You belong to him tonight
There is nothing I can do
You belong to him tonight
There is nothing I can do

With words unspoken
The truth is revealed
Gates fly open
You chance to be healed

How he adores you
Will I be with you my friend
The lights they blind me
Soon he descends

You belong to him tonight
There is nothing I can do
You belong to him tonight
There is nothing I can do

You Stand Above Me

You stand above me
Promising death
I lie alone on my side
Bled slippers at my side
While eternity cycles wildly inside me
You stand above me
Promising death
Promising death while I lie alone on my side
Bled slippers at my side
While eternity cycles wildly inside me

Your eyes close

( Michael Cashmore "The Snow Abides" feat. Antony )

Your eyes close to me by fog
And I awake and arise
As the light in your eyes
Whose heavy lids close on me
My world, my life
They close on me
And I am not
No longer
They open
And I spring up their wish
Like a field of flowers
You close your eyes and I die
You close your eyes and I die
Whilst others in sleep follow lambs
I look at my hands
And count the sun making another scar across my sky
And I close my eyes
