Road to Joy Lyrics

The sun came up with no conclusion
Flowers sleeping in their beds
This city's cemetery's humming
I’m wide-awake, it’s morning

I have my drugs, I have my woman
They keep away my loneliness
My parents have they have their religion
But sleep in separate houses

I read the body count out of the paper
And now it’s written all over my face
No one ever plans to sleep out in the gutter
Sometimes that’s just the most comfortable place

So I’m drinking, breathing, writing, singing
Everyday I'm on the clock
My mind races with all my longings
But cant keep up with what I got

I hope I don’t sound too ungrateful
What history gave modern man
A telephone to talk to strangers
Machine guns and a camera lens

So when you’re asked to fight a war that’s over nothing
It’s best to join the side that’s gonna win
And no one’s sure how all of this got started
But we’re gonna make them goddam certain how its gonna end
Oh ya we will, oh ya we will!

Well I could have been a famous singer
If I had someone else’s voice
But failure’s always sounded better
Lets fuck it up boys, make some noise!

The sun came up with no conclusion
Flowers sleeping in their beds
This city's cemetery's humming
I’m wide-awake, it’s morning

Heroes Quotes

Invisible Man: I told you not to follow me.
Peter: I need help. You live up here?
Invisible Man: You're not a fast learner, eh, mate?
Peter: I took care of a man who owned this building. His name was Charles Deveaux.
Invisible Man: Never heard of him.
Peter: You don't think that's strange? I worked here. The place where you live and keep your birds.
Invisible Man: I don't keep anything. I let 'em out once a day, they come back. Sounds like free will to me.
Peter: I need to learn how to control this. Like you do.
Invisible Man: What are you talking about? It can't be controlled.
Peter: There has to be some way. If, if I don't, New York explodes. Okay? I explode.
Invisible Man: An exploding man, where'd you get that idea?
Peter: My dreams. This place. I found you for a reason. I think you're the one that has to teach me how to stop this.
Invisible Man: There's no such thing. No teaching. No Sunday school for the special. What I can do, you can't learn. You wake up in the morning, it's there. If you've got thin soup, then that's your supper. Sorry, mate, that's the way it is.
Peter: I'm trying not to die. There's got to be something you can do.
Invisible Man: I can kill you myself right now. Solve your exploding problem here. Maybe that's why you dreamt me. Don't bother looking for me. You won't find me here again.

Or is the truth that you do not have the strength or cunning to hide from destiny? That the world is not small, you are.
