Modern English

Modern English (sometimes New English as opposed to Middle English and Old English) is the form of the English language spoken since the Great Vowel Shift in England, completed in roughly 1550. more »

life in the gladhouse is never dull 
humdrum days still flying out the window 
it's wrought (wild) with overgrown people 

broken engagements and twisted faith 
growing up and then just growing older 
oh me, oh my 

an Easter parade for the innocent 
a fugitive's ? to pray for awhile 
oh me, oh my 
oh me, oh my 

my shadow gives me distance
and props me up against the wall
my shadow gives me distance
and sometimes he's not there at all

oh me, oh my 
oh me, oh my 
? 
? 
oh me, oh my 
oh me, oh my 

so let's all dance in time 
so let's all dance in time 
(life in the gladhouse is never dull) 
so let's all dance in time 
(life in the gladhouse is never dull) 
so let's all dance in time 
(life in the gladhouse is never dull) 
so let's all dance in time 
(life in the gladhouse is never dull)
