Roky Erickson – Anthem (I Promise) lyrics

I promise, I promise
My green and blue eyes to you from
I promise, I promise
My green and blue eyes to you from

For you I cool the streets with the wind at night
In the day I beat the sun with the cobblestones
And cool the wind of the Nile at night
The earth I fill with diamonds plus light
To say they never, never bite

I promise, I promise
My green and blue eyes to you from
I promise, I promise
My green and blue eyes to you from

With you God chose me his wife
Lucifer and the mother of witches
In marriage they unite
My gremlins color purple left and light
To say they never, never bite

I promise, I promise
My green and blue eyes to you from
I promise, I promise
My green and blue eyes to you from
I promise, I promise
My green and blue eyes to you from
I promise, I promise
My green and blue eyes to you from

May 9th, 1976
Satan's came to earth view May 9th
Gremlins have pictures
Of the anniversary of Christ
The square root of zero
Something smaller than zero
Which keeps getting smaller
Keep you out of sight and soul

I promise, I promise
My green and blue eyes to you from
I promise, I promise
My green and blue eyes to you
I promise, I promise
My green and blue eyes to you from
I promise, I promise
My green and blue eyes to you from
I promise
