„There’s a day to deny and a day to decry
and a day for the man the wind at his heels!“

—  Mike Scott

"The Man With The Wind At His Heels" · Video at YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yWrkveqkkQk
Book of Lightning (2007)
Контексте: There’s a day to ride thumb on a thunderhead
There’s a day to make fantasy real
There’s a day to deny and a day to decry
and a day for the man the wind at his heels!

„He did a forty-two minute
cosmic rise in future shocks“

—  Mike Scott

"The Return of Jimi Hendrix"
Dream Harder (1993)
Контексте: He did a forty-two minute
cosmic rise in future shocks
Star Spangled Banner
in the back of CBGB's He stopped every clock in New York state
and every heart that heard him
and time itself was beaten and confused
and fell lamb-like under the spell of his
fabulous flashing fingers He played an encore at the Bitter End
a heartburst Little Wing
even the waiters cried
and then we fell outside
and in the dusty dawn of Bleeker street
a sweet rain fell
and Jimi died.

his stratocaster caused the mighty Empire State

„It's about a person who has a spectacular, meteor-like rise, but burns out or dies young.“

—  Mike Scott

As quoted in in Uncut (July 2008) http://www.uncut.co.uk/the-waterboys/the-making-of-the-waterboys-the-whole-of-the-moon-feature
Контексте: I recorded "…Moon" on my own with a drum machine, then brought musicians in as they were needed. It's about a person who has a spectacular, meteor-like rise, but burns out or dies young. Though the song ain't about him, the nearest equivalent would be Hendrix. Adding a list of all the things the hero/heroine saw raised the emotional temperature. The final chorus now had an extra fatefulness. To express this I inserted "you came like a comet, blazing your trail", then a "comet", a firework sample from a BBC sound effects record. That sweetly collided with Anthony's sax solo, so that it sounds as if the sax erupts from the comet itself. Magic like that just happens. … The Beatles' "Penny Lane" influenced the trumpet break — the sudden injection of super-fresh, bright and clear horns, a sound of optimism and clarity. Bowie's "Fame" inspired the final descending vocal, thought up and sung by Karl. I wanted the whole thing to sound like a carnival.

„But she is in the shadows,
the ocean and the sand
She is everywhere and noplace,
Her church not made with hands“

—  Mike Scott

"Church Not Made With Hands"
A Pagan Place (1984)
Контексте: She is everywhere and noplace
Like a breath or like a wind
she moves among men
They would seek to hold her as a prize
But she is in the shadows,
the ocean and the sand
She is everywhere and noplace,
Her church not made with handsUncontained by man.

Like a breath or like a wind“

"Ain't No Words for the Things I'm Feeling"
Universal Hall (2003)
Контексте: Ain't no words for the things I'm feeling
ain't no tongue can tell
no name for the song my soul's revealing
and all is very well…

„He was young and black and beautiful
big eyed, perfect skin an'
he played my guitar like a lightning storm“

—  Mike Scott

"The Return of Jimi Hendrix"
Dream Harder (1993)
Контексте: He was young and black and beautiful
big eyed, perfect skin an'
he played my guitar like a lightning storm
like twirlin' feathers in the wind
he could make it sound like the end of the world
a fire, the flick of a knife
he could squeeze it slow and masterful
like the hand that brought the world to life

You saw the whole of the moon.

with lifted head

„I sacrifice my power on the altar of your love
that it may be born again on another world.“

—  Mike Scott

"Universal Hall" (co-written with Steve Wickham)
Universal Hall (2003)
Контексте: I sacrifice my power on the altar of your love
that it may be born again on another world.
Come friend, let us climb the winding flights of stairs
through the narrow door into the chamber bare
a single candle burns as we seat ourselves
words take form in our minds and repeat themselves :
"My beloved and I are one…"

„You're trying to make sense
of something that you just don't see“

—  Mike Scott

"This Is The Sea"
This Is the Sea (1985)
Контексте: You're trying to make sense
of something that you just don't see
You're trying to make sense now
and you know you once held the key
But that was the river
this is the sea.

„I saw the crescent
You saw the whole of the moon.“
