Cosmic Egg Lyrics

The following are the lyrics for all the songs featured on Wolfmother’s second album, Cosmic Egg. All lyrics transcribed by André Pusey from the official booklet. Tracks are arranged according to the deluxe edition of the album.

1. California Queen

Slipped off into the slipstream
She’s looking for the summer dream
Came down from the mountain
To find another machine

Running down all the byways
Listen to all that she says
Couldn’t see very far
Find out all that you are

My California Queen

Fully air-reconditioned
Self-made man machine
With a homemade hydroponic
Wait to find out what it means

My California queen

Standing in front of the rainbow
Could you tell me where do all the people go?
Rising from the mystic haze
Standing in front of all creation

With all their mystic ways
They seem to control the days
Somebody got to get behind it
To find out all that it means

My California queen
Oh tell me what it means
My California queen

Standing in front of the rainbow
Could you tell me where do all the people go?
Rising from the mystic haze
Standing in front of all creation

2. New Moon Rising

And the fields are turning
And the temperature’s a-rising
I see the factories are burning
When the wheels keep a-turning

Well I’ve seen that you’ve grown now
With the horses you ride
Gonna have your say now
See the new moon rising

Oh, she don’t mind
She got the time
I see the new moon rising

Oh, she don’t mind
She got the time
I see the new moon rising

See the small town boy now
From a small town family
He’s got to find his way now
Gotta find himself a woman

Well he’s scared of the people
He don’t wanna be the whipping boy
Well the time has come now
Gotta hit that highway

Oh, she don’t mind
She got the time
I see the new moon rising

Oh, she don’t mind
She got the time
I see the new moon rising

See the new moon rising
When the tides are turning
She got the look of knowing
She got the feelings of showing

With all that love now
I see the fields are turning
I see the new moon rising
I see the new moon rising

Oh, she don’t mind
She got the time
I see the new moon rising

Oh, she don’t mind
She got the time
I see the new moon rising

3. White Feather

You wanted love
You wanted love but it’s not what she was thinking of
You step to the left
You step to the left on your dancing feet now
Dancing feet
I can’t compete now with your dancing feet now

Somebody gotta try to get to know now
Somebody gotta try to say it’s alright now
Say it’s alright now

Dancing feet
I can’t compete now with your dancing feet now
Some people stare, they can’t compare
When you’re not over here you’re there
You see Coco, she say oh no
Another boy would like to know

Somebody gotta try to get to know now
Somebody gotta try to say it’s alright now
Say it’s alright now

She’s got the white feather
To get you through the night
She’s got the white feather
To make it feel alright

Dancing feet

Somebody gotta try to get to know now
Somebody gotta try to say it’s alright now
Say it’s alright now

4. Sundial

In time you will find
Many things found in the ordinary
Could it be what you see
Many things are extraordinary

Every time when I look at you
Well I seem to find another thing behind the story
Every time when I look at you
Well I seem to find another dream behind the glory

And now it seems no time at all
The sundial wonders
How could you see nothing at all
The sundial wonders on

Took a walk in the park
Walking all around in the after hour
Sometimes keep it light
To take away all of your love and power

Every time when I look into
Well I seem to find another thing behind the story
Every time when she looks into
Well I seem to find another dream behind the glory

And now it seems no time at all
The sundial wonders
How could you see nothing at all
The sundial wonders on

And now it seems no time at all
The sundial wonders on

5. In the Morning

When you wake up in the morning and look into her eyes
And everything you’re dreaming of is far beyond the skies
I believe we’re going out into the open void
Far across the sky, never wondering why

Oh, my little girl
Look into the other side and you’ll find the time

Everybody’s got a story, everybody’s got their own
Do you feel any better when you find you’re not alone?
As you lay on down and look into the sun
And you see somebody that reminds you of where you’re coming from

Oh, my little girl
Look into the other side and you’ll find you’ve begun

Never have I felt like this before
Though sometimes well I’ve seen an opening door
Just like a stone until it’s thrown
Listen to the tone where the truth can make itself known

Said the sun to the mountainside
You will never find out ’til you try
All their words cut like a knife
You’re gonna have to stand up sometime

Wondering how did it all ever turn out this way
Even those who stand so tall can no longer say
Anytime you’ve fallen down, anytime you’re far away
May you never need to justify everybody’s got their own way

Oh
Look into the other side and you’ll find you’ve begun

Never have I felt like this before
Though sometimes well I’ve seen an opening door
And everywhere you look when you look into the book
Well I can’t believe that you’ve never been here before

Said the sun to the mountainside
You will never find out ’til you try
And all their words cut like a knife
You’re gonna have to stand up sometime

6. 10,000 Feet

They came from ten-thousand feet
On a possibility street
It was the law of the land
Turned castles into the sand

Well it’s only kingdoms a-turning
Well I’ve got to find out some learning
Even the people so small
Wanna see the tyrant a-fall, oh yeah

You could be what you see anytime, this time
Could it be what you see you could be, in time

Your love
My love
Our love
In time

Your love
My love
Our love
In time

It was the law of the law
Turned castles into the sand
Somehow the machine prevailed
Another tyrant’s tale

It’s only kingdoms a-turning
Watching the factories burning
Even the mountain so tall
Will see the tyrant fall, oh yeah

Anytime you could see what you be, in time
Could it be everything that you see, is fine

Your love
My love
Our love
In time

Your love
My love
Our love
Yeah, in time

Take the time to see the other things in life
Are all around you never get the time
To see all this about me anyway
Your love, my love, will stand in time always

7. Cosmic Egg

Walking through the gallery of light
Say hello to all those wayward eyes
Light up and cast your fears away

Look into what you have learned
How does it feel to have yearned?
The gift that she gave was given to be given away

Tell me all of your good reasons
Tell me every word you say
I’ve given you all of the seasons
Running through the night and day

I’m going out of my mind since I’ve seen you
Tell me how I’ve got to live this way

I take a look around this town
People get up but they don’t get down
Standing on the edge of nowhere

Tell me all of your good reasons
Tell me every word you say
I’ve given you all of the seasons
Running through the night and day

I’m going out of my mind since I’ve seen you
Tell me how I’ve got to live this way

8. Far Away

Don’t you ever
Get together
When you’re far away
When you’re far away

The nights are long
Well it’s something that you’ve never seen
But it’s hard to say
And it’s hard to say

Don’t listen to the words they say
They could take it or leave it anyway
Just let it go another day, oh

And I believe that love is gonna last forever
And it’s all within my mind
And it’s all within my mind

And I believe that love is gonna last forever
And it’s all within my mind
And it’s all within my mind

Step down from the mountainside
Well I see that you’re doing fine
When you’re far away
When you’re far away

Well you tell me that you’re coming down
Well it’s good to see you back around
But it’s hard to say
I was far away

Don’t listen to the words they say
They could never believe you anyway
Just let it go another day, oh

And I believe that love is gonna last forever
And it’s all within my mind
And it’s all within my mind

And I believe that love is gonna last forever
And it’s all within my mind
And it’s all within my mind

And I believe that love is gonna last forever
And it’s all within my mind
And it’s all within my mind

And I believe that love is gonna last forever
And it’s all within my mind
And it’s all within my mind

Can you believe that love is gonna last forever?
And it’s all within my mind
And it’s all within my mind

9. Cosmonaut

Young girl
Can you tell me what you’re looking for?
Down this
Never-ending highway

Wipe your
Your tears away
Listen
Hear what I say

Sitting here with nothing on my mind
Could you possibly afford the time?
Are we looking for the only cosmonaut?
The only cosmonaut

Young girl
Can you tell me where do you go?
Delirious
Only way that you know

Sitting here with nothing on my mind
Could you possibly afford the time?
Are we looking for the only cosmonaut?
The only cosmonaut
The only cosmonaut
The only cosmonaut

We travelled far off into space
No longer part of any race
All wordly pleasures left behind
No longer part of our own kind

The only cosmonaut
The only cosmonaut
The only cosmonaut
The only cosmonaut

10. Pilgrim

Hey there gypsy, walk without a sound
See those people try to put you down
She’s got wisdom inside her hand

For no good reason, never could be found
With all the people living in this town
Searching for wisdom inside the sand

She’s got hands that go inside my mind
She’s got hands that go inside my mind
This time I think I’m feeling fine

Somehow they seem, seem to get around
Giving the message from the underground
She’s got that wisdom inside her hand

She’s got hands that go inside my mind
She’s got hands that go inside my mind
I think I’m feeling fine

With the thoughts that you have or that you find
It can confuse you some of the time
It’s like you’re chasing smoke into the night
Somebody’s changing to the call of the wild

She’s got hands that go inside my mind
This time I think I’m feeling fine

11. Eyes Open

Sister can you tell me
What you’ve been waiting for
All along did you see
Someone wanting more?

And all elaborate plans you’ve made all fall away
Fall away

Anytime you wonder
You wonder where to begin
All along did you see
Something more within?

And now the time has come to take what is yours
What is yours

Somehow, somewhere
Somehow, somewhere
Take your opinions and go

And all elaborate plans and desert nights are far away
Far away

Somehow, somewhere
Somehow, somewhere
These are the things they can never take away
Take away

And I’ve been looking for so long
And now my eyes are open

And I’ve been looking for so long
And now my eyes are open

And I’ve been looking for so long
And now my eyes are open

And I’ve been looking for so long
And now my eyes are open

And all elaborate plans are written in the hands we have
Oh

12. Back Round

Hey, I’m coming home right now
Can you tell me if the people need to let alone, right now

I’m coming home
It’s been too long
Since the light was gone
I’m coming home, yeah

Coming alive, coming alive just to see you
Realise it’s all in front of you
Realise it’s all you ever know
Realise it’s all you ever do

Oh, I’m coming back around
Oh, it won’t be long

It looks like someone has been
In here before
They left here thinking they could
Still have it all

The tickets sold and the man got rich
With a seven-year itch
But all those involved fell over
In their own ditch

They like eyes to see on parallels
Seeing all things as similar
For those who deny chance
Have their chance denied

Oh, I’m coming back around
Oh, it won’t be long

13. In the Castle

Would you like to walk into the kingdoms of the sun?
We could walk into the fields and see where it begun
She could be the answer to your everything
She could take you anywhere that you have never been

Stagger alone
Into the crowd
Could not define

She’s sitting down
Beneath the crowd
Drinking my wine

All alone
The answer to everything
All alone
It’s another way out
I’m only looking for a way out
And I’ve been looking for a way out

Would you like to walk into the kingdoms of the sun?
We could walk into the fields and see where it begun
She could be the answer to your everything
She could take you anywhere that you have never been

Stagger alone
Into the crowd
Could not define

She’s sitting down
Beneath the crowd
Drinking my wine

All alone
It’s another way out
All alone
It’s another way out
And I’ve been looking for a way out
And I’ve been looking for a way out

Would you like to go into the Kingdoms of the sun?

14. Caroline

I can remember
I can remember a time of beginning to relate
To who you are
Who you really are, never look back ’cause we’ve come so far

There’s a place
I can never return, so I decide to let it burn
Far away
Is where I’d rather be than to see that look upon your face

Our love is all around here
She goes away just to be near

Caroline
Tell me why you wanna leave this way
Caroline
Tell me where you gonna go this time
‘Cause all we are
Is all we are and now it’s up to you

Caroline
We’ll find a place that makes you feel a part
Well it gets you high
And makes you feel the possibility

And who you really are
Who you really are, never look back ’cause we’ve come so far
There’s a place
I can never return, and from here you’ll start to learn

Our love is all around here
She goes away just to be near

Caroline
Tell me why you wanna leave this way
Caroline
Tell me where you gonna go tonight
‘Cause all we are
Is all we are and there’s no reason why
‘Cause all we are
Is all we are

Don’t let it go to waste
Don’t you let it go to waste
Don’t you ever go away

15. Phoenix

Illumination inside of you
Simplicity is in all we do
Like a landslide falling beneath you
Look to the future is all we can do

Like a phoenix rising in the sky
We will run into the morning light

Highly recommended by someone
With an inclination to enjoy
Misinterpret such a simple life
With one eye to satisfy

Like a phoenix rising in the sky
We will run into the morning light

Like a phoenix rising in the sky
We will run into the morning light

Like a phoenix rising in the sky
We will run into the morning light

16. Violence of the Sun

Look into the sky
Never wondered why
The violence of the sun

See all the little games of
Think they all fall apart
What they have become

Could you see another way?
I don’t need to say
Well I’ve seen another way
And I need to explain

Look into her eyes
See it’s a coloured sky
What we have become

All the little children
Playing the game of life
The violence of the sun

Well I’ve seen your other way
Out of everything I say
Well I’ve seen another way
When I look into your eyes I see your heart

May you never believe me
Well I woke up and tried to see me

Well you gotta know
What you gonna say

    Digital Cameras are great and I believe everyone should own one.
    There are many shops that sell cameras but only a few shops selling camera with
    a low price after discount. One of the best features is the
    LCD screen.

    Along with that scope of your neighbors canot. You should be done by general contractors who have knowledge of local costs, and you feel satisfied when they go along.
