Ballad Of A Crystal Man Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Walk along and talk along and live your lives quite freely
But leave our children with their toys of peppermint and candy
For seagull, I don't want your wings, I don't want your freedom in a lie

Your thoughts they are of harlequin, your speeches of quicksilver
I read your faces like a poem, kaleidoscope of hate words
For seagull, I don't want your wings, I don't want your freedom in a lie

On the quilted battlefields of soldiers dazzling, made of toy tin
The big bomb like a child's hand could sweep them dead just so to win
For seagull, I don't want your wings, I don't want your freedom in a lie

As you fill your glasses with the wine of murdered Negroes
Thinking not of beauty that spreads like morning sun glow
Seagull, I don't want your wings, I don't want your freedom in a lie

I pray your dreams of vivid screams of children dying slowly
And as you polish up your guns, your real self, be reflecting
For seagull, I don't want your wings, I don't want your freedom in a lie

Vietnam, your latest game, you're playing with your blackest queen
Damn your souls and curse your grins, I stand here with a fading dream
For seagull, I don't want your wings, I don't want your freedom in a lie
