Skyclad - Skyclad Lyrics

  • I'll sing to you of days departed,
  • Times when men proud and stouthearted carved their names on history's bloody
  • Page,
  • The corpse of chivalry long dead
  • Is turning in his loamy bed indignant at your new 'enlightened' age
  • White-collared knights at boardroom tables dream their own financial fables,
  • Fight to make their incomes larger--mounted on their 'credit charges.'
  • Held within the safety of this mundane existence--
  • Facing endless grey Mondays of dull nine to fives,
  • We all climb the social ladder with a dogged persistence,
  • Forging chains we shall carry for the rest of our lives.
  • We cannot see through clothes may maketh man they cannot give us shelter--
  • On this mortal helter-skelter if our loyalties are torn,
  • Between the values we believe in and the egos we are feeding--
  • We stand all together ***** as the day we were born.
  • And so cast off the lies that are our lives and find the truth within.
  • SKYCLAD--the veil has lifted,
  • SKYCLAD--now I see through,
  • SKYCLAD--your mask of illusion,
  • SKYCLAD--to the fake that is you.
  • Financial wizards read their spells from filofaxes
  • Concrete hells of their own making pass for Avalon.
  • These men self-made by shrewd investing spend their weekends child-molesting,
  • Lost in 'green-belt' dreams they do no wrong.
  • Your mortgage payment rocket--
  • Like your blood pressure rising,
  • Executive stresses are the dragons you fight.
  • In your Armani armour you are practically shining,
  • So have no code of honour--you must always be right.
  • Just give me a simple life--my tastes are not demanding,
  • And whatever life may hand me I'll accept it with good grace;
  • For I'm just a simple lad with few ideas about my station,
  • So ale and song will apt suffice to keep me in my place.
  • How can you know the cost of everything yet never see its worth?
  • If you think because you've paid the piper you should call the tune--
  • Well think again my friend life is a gain of chance,
  • By Fate's command we win or lose,
  • But still retain the right to choose
  • If we should stumble on--or shed our cares and dance
  • SKYCLAD--the veil has lifted,
  • SKYCLAD--no I see through,
  • SKYCLAD--your mask of illusion,
  • SKYCLAD--to the fake that is you.
  • You charge each other for the time and breath it takes to say 'good morning,'
  • But the truth is slowly dawning--things are getting out of hand,
  • We all pursue our shattered dreams along the roads to our own ruin--
  • Watch our empires sink and wash away like castles made of sand.
  • And so cast off the lies that are your lives and find the truth within
