Eagle in the dark
Feathers in the pages.
Monkeys in my heart
Are rattling their cages.

Found a way to blue
And another ghost to follow
Said "it's only up to you"
And that's the hardest pill to swallow.

Mmmmmhmmmmmhhhmmm

You never get to choose
You live on what they sent you
And you know they're gonna use
The things you love against you

One foot in the grave
One foot in the shower
There's never time to save
You're paying by the hour

And that's just the way it goes
Falling awake
And that's just the way it goes

Slipping through the bars
Aware of the danger
Of riding in the cars
Taking candy from strangers

And it's never out of hand
Never out of pocket
I'm supersonic man
Do you wanna buy a rocket?

And that's just the way it goes
Falling awake, falling awake
Oh and that's just the way it goes
Falling awake, falling awake

Eagle in the dark
Feathers in the pages
Monkeys in my heart
Are rattling their cages
I could learn to play the game
Learn to run the hustle
If I only had the brains
The money or the muscle

Hey, I don't really get the sense behind that song...maybe thats because English is not my native language ;-) Can anyone help me on some of these phrases? Thanx!
Don't sweat it. There are more interesting things to spend your time on. Trust me.

I agree. That's an interesting turn of phrase. Is there a medical term for that condition? :wink:

This will draw fire from the PC RP crowd, but what a freaking P*ssy. Whimper whimper snivel. He's okay in that Tears for Fears cover that he does, but this is nauseating.
smooth! I like it!
Honkies in my heart? Hey, how about Gerbils up my butt ... He is trying to do a Donovan singing Atlantis, but his boat sank. Here, take some candy from THIS stranger! :beat: :beat: :beat: :beat: :beat: :beat: :beat: :beat: :beat: :beat: :beat: :beat: :skull: :skull: :skull: :skull: :skull: :skull: :skull: :moon: :moon: :moon: :moon: :moon:
Pretty much sucks out loud. Boring and dull
He's falling awake, but it put me to sleep.
I wasn't paying attention to the lyrics,just to the voice and minimal arrangement.It works for me. And Don't Dream It's Over to follow.........Sublime
This is more a page from a sketchbook than an actual song...almost like he happened to record his noodling trying to figure out the song...then said "awe fuck it, that's the best I'm gonna do" ...pretty poor.
Ah, yes, another quivering, sensitive, muted, oh so precious voice singing about monkeys in his heart. Right. How many Sufjans do we really need?
This is ... not so good. :yawn: :snooty:
go gary!! love ya ;)
my question is: are monkeys in one's heart a good or bad thing. i can see this one from both sides...

what movie is this from?
When I'm in the right mood, I like Gary Jules a lot. Not sure what mood I'm in today for this one.

Falling awake? You sure about that Jules?
sounded a bit like Sufjan for a while Quite cool
:sleep:
Immediate impression was "Lesbian Seagull" from an old Beavis and Butthead episode :sorry:
