Mouth On Fire Lyrics


There the bones do sleep
And there the soul is soul
And there the Gods do weep
When the angels fall
But here the thoughts won't keep
And here the blood runs cold
And here the grave is deep
And the devil calls
Brought my heart to feed, but my mouth was fire
Brought the earth my seed, but it would not flower
Where the jeweled stream? Where the eased desire?
In some fool's dream? In the ending hour?
I brought my voice, just noise to poor old silence
A clanging toy, a clanging toy, empty strident
I brought my eyes, in utter ruin sightless
The tears I cried, the tears I cried still so frightened
Brought my heart to feed, but my mouth was fire
Brought the earth my seed, but it would not flower
Where the jeweled stream? Where the eased desire?
In some fool's dream? In the ending hour?
Where the silver streets? Where the blossoming?

Where sounds so sweet? Where songs of spring?
Where words for things? Where golden memories?
Where quiet seas? Where certainty?
Where all might cease
The talk, the want, the posturing?
Brought my heart to feed, but my mouth was fire
Brought the earth my seed, but it would not flower
Where the jeweled stream? Where the eased desire?
In some fool's dream? In the ending hour?
Where poetry?
Where mystic harmonies?
Where love that frees?
Where security?
Where sympathy?
Where tranquility?
Where rest in peace?
In the dream or in the fire?
Mouth on fire
Mouth on fire

Duncan Scott Sheik (born November 18, 1969) is an American singer-songwriter. Born in Montclair, New Jersey, Sheik's upbringing was split between his parents' home in South Carolina and that of his grandparents in New Jersey. His grandmother, a piano graduate of The Juilliard School, taught him to play the piano and encouraged his musical development. He graduated from Phillips Academy in 1988, after which he studied semiotics at Brown University.

Sheik began his professional musical career playing for other acts, including Liz And Liza (with Lisa Loeb and Liz Mitchell), and played on His Boy Elroy's 1993 album. Through connections from fellow Brown alum Tracee Ellis Ross, Sheik's music gained the attention of executives at Atlantic Records. Duncan Sheik's eponymous debut album for Atlantic spawned the 1996 hit single "Barely Breathing" in the US, which remained on the charts for 55 straight weeks. In 1998, he was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for "Barely Breathing."

In addition to his work as a solo artist, he collaborates with the poet and writer Steven Sater. Together, they have written an album of art-pop songs, ''Phantom Moon'', a Broadway musical, ''Spring Awakening'', and the score for the film ''A Home at the End of the World''. They are currently working on a new musical based on the story of "The Emperior and the Nightingale", which will have its workshop premiere in 2007 at the La Jolla Playhouse.

As of 2009, Whisper House is the sixth studio album recorded by Duncan Sheik, released in the United States on January. The album is Sheik's first for the RCA Victor label, as well as his first in the wake of success from composing music for the Tony award-winning musical Spring Awakening.
