When pinheads attack

One of my all-time favorite songs

I may have posted this before, in which case, here it is again.

The Fat Lady Sings: Arclight
Hear the song:

shine like an arclight
sing like a bird might sing
when he was higher than heaven
higher than every other thing
some kind of arclight
sparks in the street
I know that you’ve no answers
all I need is for you to shine

shine like an arclight
like I want you to shine
I know that you’ve nobody
and I know that you’re not mine
but the light that you are
and the light you could be
is the only thing I want
the only light I can see

you don’t have to know the words
and you don’t have to know the rules

you just shine in the morning like the sun
burn like a candle in the night
shine like a book that’s never been read
burn like a saint who knows he’s right
shine like a shard of glass
on the forest ground
when you shine you know
you burn me down

well I don’t wear no chains
I’ve got no cross to bear
and I’m as free as the wind
I am as free as the air
I am as free as the old
I am as cold as the dawn
and I’m as lost as you are
you are my only law

you don’t have to know the words
and you don’t have to know the rules
and you never had to speak
you never had to speak, oh no, oh no, oh no
you never had to speak
you never had to speak, oh no, oh no, oh no

you just shine in the morning like the sun
burn like a candle in the night
shine like a book that’s never been read
burn like a saint who knows he’s right
shine like a shard of glass
on the forest ground
when you shine you know
you burn me

shine in the morning like the sun
burn like a candle in the night
shine like a book that’s never been read
burn like a saint who knows he’s right
shine like a shard of glass
on the forest ground
when you shine you know
you burn me down

down, down, down
you burn me down
