Rising Sun Lyrics

by George Harrison

On the street of villains taken for a ride
You can have the devil as a guide
And crippled by the boundaries, programmed into guilt
'Til your nervous system starts to tilt

And in the room of mirrors you can see for miles
But everything that's there is in disguise
Every word you've uttered and every thought you've had
Is all inside your file, the good and the bad

But in the rising sun
You can feel your life begin
Universe at play inside your DNA
And you're a billion years old today

Oh the rising sun
And the place it's coming from
Is inside of you and now your payment's overdue
Oh the rising sun, oh the rising sun

On the avenue of sinners I have been employed
Working there 'til I was near destroyed
I was almost a statistic inside a doctor's case
When I heard the messenger from the inner space

He was sending me a signal that so for long I had ignored
But he held on to my umbilical cord
Until the ghost of memory trapped in my body, mind
Came out of hiding to become alive

And in the rising sun
You can hear your life begin
And it's here and there, nowhere and everywhere
Though it's atmosphere is rare

Oh the rising sun
And the place that it's coming from
Is inside of me and now I feel it constantly
Oh the rising sun, oh the rising sun

But in the rising sun
You can feel your life begin
Universe at play inside your DNA
You're a billion years old today

Oh the rising sun
And the place it's coming from
Is inside of you and your payment's overdue
Oh the rising sun, oh the rising sun, oh the rising sun
