Schwa Lyrics

1983....(A Merman I Should Turn To Be)

Lyricist: Jimi Hendrix
Vocalist: Ed McGee
Hooray I awake from yesterday
Alive but the war is here to stay
So my love Katherina and me
Decide to take our last walk through the noise to the sea
Not to die but to be reborn
Away from lands so battered and torn


Oh say can you see it's really such a mess
Every inch of earth is a fighting nest
Giant pencil lipstick tube shaped things
continue to rain and cause screamin' pain
and the Artic stains from silver blue to bloody red
As our feet finds the sand and the sea....

Is straight ahead....Straight up ahead

Well it's too bad that our friends
Ah can't be with us today
well it's too bad
the machine that we built
Would never save us that's what they say,
that's why they ain't comin' with us today
and they also said it's impossible
For man to live and breathe under water
Forever was a main complaint today
And they also threw this in my face, 
they said uh
Anyway you know good and well 
It would be beyond the will of god
And the grace of the king, grace of the king, Yeah!

So my darling and i make love in the sand
To salute the last moment ever on dry land
Our machine has done his work played this part well
Without a scratch on our body and we bid it farewell
Starfish and giant foams greet us with a smile
Before our heads go under we take our last look at the killing noise.

Way off the outta style
The out of style, out of style
