Among The Dead And To Live Like This

Musik von Elton John/Text von Bernie Taupin

geschrieben für das Broadway Musical "Lestat"/ bislang unveröffentlicht

Just look at you, who do you think you are
To flaunt our laws with your rash ways
To mock our rules with disregard

Your presence here is poison in our veins
Your human traits sour our belief
Your arrogance should be your shame

In your Spanish leather boots, silver buttons on your vest
Gold embroidery down your britches, diamond broach upon your chest

We move on the devil's darkest
You shun your forms of godliness
What you parade among the living
We harbor sullen world of death

Just look at me, well I say look at you
You hog these walls like half-starved rats
A filthy cowering vermin crew

Where is it written, who said to live like this
Show me the face of such a fool
Who trade this gift for shit and piss

What's to fear on hallowed ground
Cold stone angels bound to good
A crucifix is nothing more, just a dead man on two bits of wood

Your self-imposed archaic ways are simply lies to bind your will
Above this wreched trip to live in shine forms of light that cannot kill

chorus:
Trust in me, there is no need
If you want to live like this and not believe
The night holds more than darkness and the stars
Don't fear the world out there because of who you are
So come with me and you will see there is no need to live like this
No need

You act so bold as if you have the right
To challenge us, this ancient ___ one you are to this cursed life

I bring you proof, you've seen it with your eyes
I've danced within the church of God, seen opera sung and still survived

From one who drank his mother's blood, a quest to be some harlequin
I see the words dry in your mouth, it seems your hold is wearing thin

Beware the smoonth-tongued libertine, he'll share with you his grand demise
His logic crumbling like a corpse, no god amongst who rules your lies

chorus:
Trust in me, there is no need
For anyone to live like this and not believe
The night holds more than darkness and the stars
Don't fear the world out there because of who you are
So come with me and you will see there is no need to live like this
No need
