THE ART OF NOISE Lyrics

by Cee-lo

Hey now here we go let's start the show
Those that know me call me 'Lo
But you can call me The Soul Machine
Watch, see what I mean?

Four million flavors of the southern soul flower
But the power that you get from the heart of a human being
Only the mind is mechanic the dynamic happens
When the divine starts to intervene

Have mercy if I seem to be heavy
I don't mean to be heavy but come let me say this last thing
'Cause the beginning and the ending and the mis assumption
Just make the most of it in between

It's like I'm standing on my tippy-toes
To touch a star
Trying to catch joy in a glass jar and yes by far
I'm so much further than they are

Turn the radio on, let the music play
If I could I'd dance my life away
And if you can't seem to find any words to say
Make a joyful noise, fifth around it's another day

Hey now, when you see me you would know that you saw me
Because he always got on his game and his good shoes
Difficult to stop creating can't wait
'Cause they came to see God, then Green tell 'em the good news

Isn't it ironic how it feels so good?
But I was only just singing the blues
I wouldn't open my mouth about it at all
If I thought that I was only just singing the fool

Have mercy if I seem to be heavy
I don't mean to be heavy, maybe 'Lo you should lighten up
I really would if I could but I really don't think
That anybody shell out enough

And I really think true
Wealth is home and happiness and health
A little cash and you'll need nothing else
And as far as me being good, I can't help myself

Turn the radio on, let the music play
If I could I'd dance my life away
And if you can't seem to find any words to say
Make a joyful noise, fifth around it's another day

So when you really, really need you some soul
I mean dead serious damn near 'bout to die 'bout some
Don't be too proud to turn your radio way up loud
Close your eyes and have fun

I used to feel like God was gonna call me too soon
The reason why I had to have my son
And every time I've ever opened my mouth
And said something 'bout living was to earn my ones

Have mercy if I seem to be heavy
I don't mean to be heavy, wait I'm almost done
And God can truly work a miracle
Look at me isn't it obvious that I'm one?

And I sing because I'm happy
And I sing because I'm free
And this my own little thing, yes, I agree
But don't you want your kids to grow up to be just like me?

Turn the radio on, let the music play
If I could I'd dance my life away
And if you can't seem to find any words to say
Make a joyful noise, fifth around it's another day

Y me gusta tanto cuando se pega pega
Y me guaya guaya
Y se pega pega
Cuando le sueltan el dembow

So before leavin', yo it's a wise man I'm repeatin'
Two wrongs don't make a right, I believe in it makes a even

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony
