Massive Attack – Risingson lyrics
Rising Son
(Vowles, Del naja, Marshall, Reed, Seeger)

Robert Del Naja ("3D")
I seen you go down to a cold mirror.
It was never clearer in my era so,
.. You lick a shine upon your forehead or,
Check it by the signs in the corridor.
You light my ways through the club maze.
We would struggle through the dub daze.

I see myself in there upon my lover,
It's how you go down to the men's room sink.
Sad we talk of how madmen think.
I see myself in there upon my lover,
I don't know her from another miss.
I don't know you from another.
See me run now you're gone... Dream on.

Grant Marshall ("Daddy G")
Why you want to take me to this party and breathe?
I'm dying to leave.
Every time we grind we know we severed lines.
Where have all those flowers gone?
Long time passing..
Why you keep me testing, keep me tasking?
You keep on asking.

Toy-like people make me boy-like.
Toy-like people make me boy-like.
They're invisible, when the trip it flips.
They get physical, way below my lips.
And everything you got hoi-polloi like.
Now you're lost and you're lethal.
And now's about the time you gotta leave all,
.. These good people.
.. Dream on

Nicer than the bird up in the tree top.
Cheaper than the chip inside my lap top.
All the variations you could do with me.
Nicer than the girl up in a mind you free.

Daddy G
Automatic crystal remote control,
.. They come to move your soul.

You're gonna fade into the background.
Like a better smoke'll bring you back round.
Like a man slide inside you my dear,
.. Your cheap beer's filled with crocodile tears.
See 'em run now you're gone.
.. Dream on

Toy-like people make me boy-like.
Toy-like people make me boy-like.

I found a reason.
I found a reason.

Dream on ~ Dream on ~ Dream on
