Kishi Bashi - Carry On Phenomenon Lyrics




What a beautiful life away
Naked from all the Apollonians
For their radiance shines on and on
And on and on and on...

When endowed with promises
Majestic with all the stallions
But the fateful truth burns on and on
And on and on and on...

When in doubt you made me stay
Connected in with the beyond and on
Like when the radio plays on and on
And on and on and on...

So the earth would dry of song if I sang you one
Carry on! Carry on Phenomenon
So you got the best of me so amazingly
Carry on! Carry on Phenomenon and on and on...

Oh the way that you waved to me
It awakened me in shock and awe
During the reigning age of Solomon and on
And on and on and on...

My nefarious state of mind
Illuminate in every song
For your serenade plays on and on
And on and on and on...

So the earth would dry of song if I sang you one
Carry on! Carry on Phenomenon
So you got the best of me so amazingly
Carry on! Carry on Phenomenon and on and on...

So the earth would dry of song if I sang you one
Carry on! Carry on Phenomenon
So you got the best of me so amazingly
Carry on! Carry on Phenomenon
So the earth would dry of song if I sang you one
Carry on! Carry on Phenomenon
So you got the best of me so amazingly
Carry on! Carry on Phenomenon and on

Kishi Bashi Carry On Phenomenon Comments
  1. L. M.

    A top ten fav musicians of all time!

  2. Zhara umNikko

    ELO The Next Generation? A whif of Alan Parsons Project in there? A smidgeon of ABWH? Magnificently complex and carefully crafted Prog. Carry On, indeed.

  3. Zoe Polyakov

    I’m in love with this song.

  4. ballaballapo

    SUPERTRAMP VIBES!

  5. Iggy Jiggy

    The beauty of this song literally makes me cry, like at the part in anticipation of and when he says "carry on" I just lose it. Like his angelic voice is speaking right to me.

  6. romas krivickas

    yess......thank you kishi, you are in space......lucky star

  7. Kevin Phillips

    I get such a strong, almost overwhelming 1971-1977 Genesis vibe from this (Nursery Cryme / Selling England by the Pound - Trick of the Tail / Wind and the Wuthering)

    that said, it's definitely not a ripoff and it has its own creative merits, which I applaud. Overall very impressed with Mr. Ishibashi

  8. brennan eaton

    Ok why is there a picture of me for the video.... wonder where they found that.

    Carry on! Carry on Phenomenon and on and on...

  10. Gigas0101

    Whenever I try to remember this song's lyrics, it turns into I Ran by Flock of Seagulls. Throws me off like crazy!

  11. J Shaukat

    this song was playing when i realized everything was different

  12. Armin Sebran

    Wonderful balance between the ELO syths and the spoken poem. Elements of Phillip Glass (soft rhythmic bass lines).

  13. SincerelyV

    This song is easily the best on the whole album. The album gives me ELO vibes.

    Dale Blevens III

    saaaaaaame!

    Zhara umNikko

    And perhaps a touch of Alan Parsons...... some others..... Moody Blues at their more complex? hmmm...

    ι μια όμορφη ζωή μακριά, γυμνός από όλα τα Apollonians 
    για την λάμψη τους λάμπει και για 
    όταν προικισμένο με υποσχέσεις, μαγευτικό με όλες τις επιβήτορες 
    αλλά η μοιραία αλήθεια καίει και την 

    Σε περίπτωση αμφιβολίας θα με έκανε να μείνετε συνδεδεμένοι με το υπερπέραν και την 
    όπως όταν το ραδιόφωνο παίζει και επάνω 

    Έτσι, η γη θα στεγνώσει από το τραγούδι, αν μπορώ να σας τραγούδησε ένα 
    Συνεχίστε! Συνεχίστε φαινόμενο! 
    έτσι ώστε να έχεις το καλύτερο από μένα τόσο εκπληκτικά 
    Συνεχίστε! Συνεχίστε φαινόμενο και επάνω και επάνω ... 

    Ω, ο τρόπος που κουνούσε για μένα, μου ξύπνησε σε κατάσταση σοκ και δέος 
    κατά τη διάρκεια του βασιλεύοντας ηλικία του Σολομώντα και επάνω και επάνω 
    φαύλους κατάσταση του μυαλού μου ανάβουν σε κάθε τραγούδι 
    για σερενάτα σας παίζει και στις ... 

    Έτσι, η γη θα στεγνώσει από το τραγούδι, αν μπορώ να σας τραγούδησε ένα, 
    Συνεχίστε! Συνεχίστε φαινόμενο! 
    έτσι ώστε να έχεις το καλύτερο από μένα τόσο εκπληκτικά 
    Συνεχίστε! Συνεχίστε φαινόμενο και επάνω και επάνω ...

  25. MrPepenemo

  26. Bram Boeshoe
