Transfixus Sed Non Mortuus

Here I Stand, Pierced and Transfixed

This video made me sad, but also brings a lot of what I consider reality to light. Not bad for a cartoon!

I don’t know what you smoke
or what countries you’ve been to,
if you speak any other languages other than your own.
I’d like to meet you.

I don’t know if you drive,
if you love the ground beneath you.
I don’t know if you write letters
or you panic on the phone.
I’d like to call you all the same if you want to.
I am game.

I don’t know if you can swim
If the sea is any draw for you
If your better in the morning or when the sun goes down
I’d like to call you.

I don’t know if you can dance.
If the thought ever occurred you.
If you eat what you’ve been given
or you push it ’round the plate.
I’d like to cook for you all the same.
I would want to.
I am game.

If you walk my way,
I could keep my head.
We could creep away in the dark
or maybe not.
We could chew it down anyway.

I don’t know if you read novels
or the magazines.
If you love the hand or feet.
I assume that your heart’s been bruised.
I’d like to know.

You don’t know if I can draw at all
or what records I am into.
If I sleep in a spoon
or really at all.
Or maybe you would do
Or maybe you would do

If you walk my way,
I will keep my head.
We feel our way through the dark.
Though I don’t know you,
I think that i will do.
I don’t fall easy at all,
yeah, at all
at all…
at all…
at all…

If you walk my way,
I will keep my head.
We feel our way through the dark.
Though I don’t know you,
I think that i will do.
I don’t fall easy at all.

Eight years old
with a flour sack cape tied all around his neck
He climbed up on the garage,
he’s figurin what the heck
Screwed his courage up so tight,
that the whole thing come unwound.
He got a runnin start and bless his heart,
he headed for the ground.

Well he’s one of those who knows
that life is just a leap of faith.
Spread your arms and hold your breath
and always trust your cape.

Now he’s all grown up
with a flour sack cape tied all around his dreams.
And he’s full of piss and vinegar,
and he’s bustin’ at the seams.
So he licked his finger and checked the wind,
its gonna be do or die
He wasnt scared of nothin, boys,
he was pretty sure he could fly.

Well he’s one of those who knows
that life is just a leap of faith.
Spread your arms and hold your breath
and always trust your cape.

Now he’s old and gray
with a flour sack cape tied all around his head.
And hes still jumpin off the garage
and will be ’til hes dead.
All these years the people said,
“He’s actin like a kid.”
He did not know
he could not fly, so he did.

Well he’s one of those who knows
that life is just a leap of faith.
Spread your arms and hold your breath
and always trust your cape.
Yeah, he’s one of those who knows
that life is just a leap of faith.
Spread your arms and hold your breath
and always trust your cape.
Spread your arms and hold your breath
and always trust your cape.

Oh whoa oh oh whoa
What makes a man do the things
that a man does to be
the very thing he perceives
would capture your heart?
Capture your heart…

What does it feel like inside?
Does it hurt you at night?
Or does it keep you alive,
and set you on fire?
on fire…
I would give anything
for the touch of your skin.
Yes, I would burn here for years
up in desire.
desire…

Uh huh huh huh
Uh huh huh huh

What makes a woman believe
in a man such as me?
Unworthy to sit
at your foot or your crown?
I can only let you down.
Oh whoa oh oh whoa
Oh whoa oh oh whoa
I can only let you down.
Oh whoa oh oh whoa
Oh whoa oh oh whoa

What does it feel like inside?
Does it hurt you at night?
Or does it keep you alive
and set you on fire?
on fire…
I would give anything
for the touch of your skin.
Yes, I would burn here for years
up in desire.
desire…

Uh huh huh huh
Uh huh huh huh

And some men spend their lives
chasing the accolades of pride.
But that just never crossed my mind;
you were always on my mind.

Ooohhh

What does it feel like inside?
Does it hurt you at night?
Or does it keep you alive,
and set you on fire?
on fire…
I would give anything
for the touch of your skin.
Yes, I would burn here for years
up in desire.
desire…
Uh huh huh huh
Uh huh huh huh
Uh huh huh huh
Desire.
desire…
Uh huh huh huh
Uh huh huh huh
Uh huh huh huh
Uh huh huh huh
Uh huh huh huh

Whenever I taste
honey from your lips,
it’s a moment of purpose
only you can give.

Whatever I hear,
whatever I may see,
whatever my cause, dear,
I know you believe.

‘Cause you’re beautiful my love,
when I close my eyes.
And you’re beautiful my love,
under heaven’s skies.

If ever you think
careless is the night,
I’ll comfort you with silence
till the morning light.
Wherever you turn,
wherever you may roam,
wherever you conquer,
I’ll always be your home.

‘Cause you’re beautiful my love,
when I close my eyes.
Yeah, you’re beautiful my love,
under heaven’s skies.

And you fly me
through your skies
of harmony.
And you lay me down
with words of honesty.

Yeah, you’re beautiful
You’re beautiful, yeah,
here with me.
You’re beautiful, my love
when I close my eyes.
Yeah, you’re beautiful, my love
under heaven’s skies.

Yeah, you’re beautiful, my love.
Yeah, you’re beautiful, my love.
Yeah, you’re beautiful, my love.

Yeah, you’re beautiful, my love.
Yeah, you’re beautiful, my love.
Yeah, you’re beautiful, my love.

Yeah, you’re beautiful, my love.
Yeah, you’re beautiful, my love.
Yeah, you’re beautiful, my love.

Yeah, you’re beautiful, my love.
Yeah, you’re beautiful, my love
under heaven’s skies.

I love the sound of the harp in this rendition of ‘The Parting Glass.’ It reminds of a ancient bardic tradition that swept the British Isles many years ago. The song lends itself well to Robin Williamson’s interpretation with the beautiful articles.

There’s a little girl and her name is Mary Mack
Make no mistake, she’s the girl I’m gonna tack
A lot of other fellas, they would get up on her track.
but I’m thinking that they’ll have to get up early.

Mary Mack’s father’s makin’ Mary Mack marry me.
My father’s makin’ me marry Mary Mack.
I’m goin’ to marry Mary for my Mary to take care of me.
We’ll all be making merry when I marry Mary Mack!

Well this little lass, she has a lot of class.
She’s got a lot of brass and her father thinks I’m gas,
and I’d be a silly ass for to let the matter pass.
Her father thinks she suits me fairly.

Mary Mack’s father’s makin’ Mary Mack marry me.
My father’s makin’ me marry Mary Mack.
I’m goin’ to marry Mary for my Mary to take care of me.
We’ll all be feelin’ merry when I marry Mary Mack!

Mary and her mother go an awful lot together.
In fact, you hardly ever see the one without the other.
And the people wonder whether if its Mary or her mother
or both of them together that I’m courting.

Mary Mack’s father’s makin’ Mary Mack marry me.
My father’s makin’ me marry Mary Mack.
I’m goin’ to marry Mary for my Mary to take care of me.
We’ll all be feelin’ merry when I marry Mary Mack!

The wedding’s on Wednesday and everything’s arranged
Soon her name will change to mine, unless her mind is changed
And in makin’ the arrangements, I’m just about deranged
Marriage is an awful undertaking!

Mary Mack’s father’s makin’ Mary Mack marry me.
My father’s makin’ me marry Mary Mack.
I’m goin’ to marry Mary for my Mary to take care of me.
We’ll all be feelin’ merry when I marry Mary Mack!

It’s sure to be a grand affair and grander than the fair.
There’s gonna be a coach and pair for every pair that’s there.
We’ll dine upon the finest fare; I’m sure to get my share.
If I don’t, well I’ll be very much mistaken!

Mary Mack’s father’s makin’ Mary Mack marry me.
My father’s makin’ me marry Mary Mack.
I’m goin’ to marry Mary for my Mary to take care of me.
We’ll all be feelin’ merry when I marry Mary Mack!

Mary Mack’s father’s makin’ Mary Mack marry me.
My father’s makin’ me marry Mary Mack.
I’m goin’ to marry Mary for my Mary to take care of me.
