Fix Your Gaze

When you hit your note
It's like you had no choice
I can't resist distraction's web
When you use that voice
On a crowded stage
I play soliloquy
I'm at the center of the earth
When you gaze on me

The familiar ring of the native drums
Sometimes I hardly recognize it
Inspiration comes
With the tip of my mind
Holding back the sea
I have no choice but to prevail
When you gaze on me

I've got the ghost of a new machine
Where I can find reality routine
Every time you fix your gaze on me

When you gaze on me
I feel a ring of fire
When you gaze on me
And I lose all desire
Fix your heart on me
I'll show you what I've memorized
Fix your gaze on me
I need to see your eyes [Uh - good God!]

Out in the cold the assassin waits
Armored by love no sword can penetrate
Every time you fix your heart on me
I'm a new machine
Where I can find reality routine
Every time you fix your gaze on me


I got the message in my mailbox
Nobody goes to church no more
They're closing down your little altar
They've locked the sanctuary door

Don't fight it
Who can say that you didn't try
Don't fight it
Old soldiers never die

Where will I go to leave my offering
To think about how life's so queer
And listen to the little choir
The sermon I don't care to hear

Don't fight it
Who can say that it's not the end
Don't fight it
And if we don't meet again
I know somewhere a monument
Stands in the name of our love
Somewhere are monuments
Standing in the name of our love

I've seen such strange times
Seems like lifetimes
Sometimes good and sometimes bad
And I don't see how it could
Have been much different
Everybody gave the best they had
