Grateful Dead - Throwing Stones Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Picture a bright blue ball just spinning, spinning free
  • Dizzy with eternity.
  • Paint it with a skin of sky, brush in some clouds and sea
  • Call it home for you and me.
  • A peaceful place or so it looks from space
  • A closer look reveals the human race.
  • Full of hope, full of grace, is the human face.
  • But afraid, we may our home to waste.
  • Theres a fear down here we cant forget hasnt got a name just yet
  • Always awake, always around singing ashes to ashes all fall down.
  • Now watch as the ball revolves and the nighttime calls
  • And again the hunt begins and again the bloodwind calls
  • By and by again, the morning sun will rise
  • But the darkness never goes from some mens eyes.
  • It strolls the sidewalks and it rolls the streets
  • Stalking turf, dividing up meat.
  • Nightmare spook, piece of heat, you and me, you and me.
  • Click, flashblade in ghetto night. rudies looking for a fight.
  • Rat cat alley roll them bones. need that cash to feed that jones
  • And the politicians throwing stones
  • Singing ashes, ashes all fall down.
  • Commissars and pin-striped bosses role the dice
  • Any way they fall guess who gets to pay the price.
  • Money green or proletarian gray, selling guns instead of food today.
  • So the kids they dance, they shake their bones
  • While the politicians throwing stones
  • Singing ashes, ashes all fall down.
  • Heartless powers try to tell us what to think
  • If the spirits sleeping, then the flesh is ink.
  • Historys page, it is thusly carved in stone
  • The futures here, we are it, we are on our own.
  • If the game is lost then were all the same
  • No one left to place or take the blame.
  • We will leave this place an empty stone
  • Or this shinning ball of blue we can call our home
  • So the kids they dance, they shake their bones
  • While the politicians are throwing stones
  • Singing ashes, ashes all fall down.
  • Shipping powders back and forth
  • Singing black goes south while white comes north
  • And the whole world full of petty wars
  • Singing I got mine and you got yours.
  • And the current fashions set the pace.
  • Lose your step, fall out of grace.
  • And the radical he rant and rage, singing someone got to turn the page
  • And the rich man in his summer home,
  • Singing just leave well enough alone
  • But his pants are down, his covers blown
  • And the politicians are throwing stones
  • So the kids they dance they shake their bones
  • Cause its all too clear were on our own
  • Picture a bright blue ball just spinning, spinning free
  • Its dizzying, the possibilities. ashes, ashes all fall down.
