PHOENIX
[Music:  "Horses", Tori Amos]

I got me a Phoenix
to fly in
to fly in
they say that the demons
have gone there
so I got me a Phoenix
to fly in
to fly in
as long as your army
keeps perfectly still

and maybe Iīll find me a sister
a twister
and maybe together
weīll make mother well
so I got me a Phoenix
to fly in
to fly in
as long as your army
keeps perfectly still

you taught me to fight them
and kill them
and hate them
and you said we'd beat them
but we never could
so we fly out to fight them
you said we were all right then
but Dad gave his life
and mine was empty then

off with Condor Joe
trying to find a way
isn't that Berg Katze?
come on, Hakase
don't yell at me
counting the minutes
one two three
the Cataroller's rolling
itīs easy like
one
two
three

and if there is a way to fight them
I will fight them
but will you let me go where I need to be?
I'd ask, but I don't know
except that you said so
and promises broken
donīt mend easily
