Larry Norman – A Dangerous Place To Be lyrics

I saw you with your suitcase
And your guitar in your hand
And your blue suede shoes were pointing
Toward the promised land

Some men are ruined by failure
Some by their success
Some men are ruined by the wiles of a
Wicked woman in a low-cut dress

Those heading for destruction are blind and they cannot
See
And where they're gonna wake up is a dangerous place to
Be

You will have to choose over and over
Or you'll sing the blues over and over
Are you gonna lose over and over
Or change the way you live

Instrumental passage

Falling down the scarlet staircase
Comes jubal's last band
They can't see the cross cause they're too busy
Listening
To the clapping of one hand

I'll be waiting in armageddon
When the lawyers come around
I'll be praying for the strength of samson
To pull the courtroom down

Don't let anybody tell you that your soul is already
Free
'Cause you'll die and where you'll wake up is a
Dangerous place to be

You will have to choose over and over
Or you'll sing the blues over and over
Are you gonna lose over and over
Or change the way you live

Like the chief of sinners among absolute beginners
Busy dying the daily death
Falling down in lonliness but I rose up in peacefulness
And now I'm living from breath to breath

Instrumental

Well I am only human
Everybody knows my sin
They bring it up in conversation
Again and again

I may have had a broken spirit
But I was trying to do my best
And the ones who refuse to forgive me should just stone
Me
So I can get some rest

You've got to learn to believe what you cannot see
Or where you're gonna wake up is a dangerous place to
Be

You will have to choose over and over
Or you'll sing the blues over and over
Are you gonna lose over and over
Or change the way you live

Does He have to die over and over
Be crucified over and over
Will you live the lies over and over
Or change the way you live

Looking for direction waiting for a sign
Standing still on the road I was on
I keep coming to the crossroads and sometimes there's
No warning saying
This way to babylon

Instrumental passage and travail

I'm looking for a sign to follow and a road to travel
On
Until I get a clear direction I'm stranded on babylon
I'm looking for a sing to follow and a road to travel
On
Until I get a clear direction I'm stranded in babylon
