Biting On Clouds

October 28, 2011

Turn to reason doors revolving
seasons bringing us together
pray to winter gone evolving
clouds controlled wrap round your shoulders

people function concepts forming
forcing us into equations
movements slowly windows falling
ghosts and fingers in the air

biting on clouds
when you get so high

image fades into the laughter
sensing lies that touch my face
turn to reason the equation
clouds are falling at my feet

biting on clouds
when you get so high
biting on clouds
when you touch the sky

She’s The Bad Guy

October 28, 2011

She’s got connections a rascal valiant
white charging gnomes in the dusted sphere
hoping for a nightmare sleeping in the sun
deserted angels a secret fear
she’s the bad guy

she knows no money a collector of love
a cheque on her soul sells security
looking for a lover looking for another
looking for someone she can have for free
she’s the bad guy

Little Mo

October 28, 2011

There’s no one in my orbit
no one to turn upon
so i just keep revolving
evolving till i’m gone
i needed some persuasion
i need someone to call
you say that loves no answer
when i say that love is all

you leave me at the mention
of the word you turn your back
you pick and choose your meanings
then you turn back to attack
you say you need a reason
a point now to it all
you say that loves no answer
when i say that love is all

i fall into your mirror
i fall into the dream
i throw away the meanings
i throw away the dream
what’s the point of asking
when you’ve never given all
you’d say that loves no answer
when i say that love is all


Cross Of Gold

October 28, 2011

Ain’t nothing when it drives your mind
ain’t it something when it’s hard to find
five lines when you shatter the glass
no time we were going too fast

no haze nothing to fear
slip broke there ain’t nothing here
start flying come on down
blue fire on the ground

they’re selling jesus on my tv
buying freedom with a credit card
submachine guns my salvation
nail me to a cross of gold

no point when you come in last
rip joint why’d you have to ask
radio talking much too loud
let go why’d you be so proud


Wyoming

October 28, 2011

Turn to reason doors revolving
seasons bringing us together
pray to winter gone evolving
clouds controlled wrapped round my shoulders

people function concepts forming
forcing us into equations
movements slowly windows falling
ghosts and fingers in the air

was it something that i said

image fades into the laughter
sensing lies that touch my face
turn to reason the equation
clouds are falling at my feet


In My Eyes

October 28, 2011

You try words are empty
you cry then forget me
you stand here beside me
you turn going right past me

i’ve been waiting through the night
i can’t find you in these eyes
i can’t see you in my eyes

culture here surrounds you
diamonds the price i pay
i fight to get inside you
i fall into your face again

i’ve been waiting through the night
i can’t find you in these eyes
i can’t see you in my eyes

i danced to your box
you moved here i’m lost
no room inside these walls
your kiss who are you calling now

i’ve been praying through the night
that i’d find you in these eyes
i can’t see you in my eyes


White Bread

October 28, 2011

Midnight train a rushing right through my mind
sirens scream is driving me right over the line
curbed and reflected flat against the wall
waiting for the man to make his call
i want to get away i want to go back home

somebodies bottle goes flying through the street
feeling something cold up against my feet
locked up and fondled throw away the key
there ain’t nothing left there ain’t nothing here for me
i just get this feeling i want to go home

find me an airplane find me a gun
take me back baby where i came from
back to the city out of the pain
where it’s easy to now to feel cool northern rain
i got to go back home


Bad Guy #2

October 28, 2011

She’s got connections a rascal valiant
white charging gnomes in the atmosphere
looking for a nightmare sleeping in the sun
crossed out intentions a secret fear
she’s the bad guy

she knows no money a collector of love
a check on her soul sells security
looking for a lover looking for another
looking for someone she can have for free
she’s the bad guy


Valentines Day

October 28, 2011

Blue shoes baby blues
come on honey we can”t  lose
scratch hands hold on tight
oh baby going down tonight
you promise to love me
but you give me your disease

long hair standing there
oh baby we don’t care
wet pants wheres your dress
oh baby what a mess
you promise to love me
you give me your disease

goodbyes baby cries
long hair no longer there
old news bedroom crawl
oh baby don’t work it all
you promised to love me
but you gave me your disease

new shoes new blues
come on baby we can’t lose
scratch hands hold on tight
oh baby going down tonight
i promise to love you
but i’ll give you my disease


Flags

October 28, 2011

I left my flags at home and i went to the party
with my teenage records and my long long hair
i was looking for reasons looking for freedom
there was someone in the room downstairs

doors open into cages
releasing human forms and chains
tied down to what we‘re facing
dragged down now to their dreams

who’s that knocking on my windows
who’s that knocking on my doors
who’s that coming through my windows
who’s that writing on my walls

turn towards another glory
thoughts embedded in our minds
in the street feet are moving
another dance another time

twisting round to see the corners
papers laying there on the floor
in the glass is reflected
all i want and i want more

who’s that knocking on my windows
who’s that knocking on my doors
who’s that crawling through my windows
who’s that writing on my walls

Mary’s Boy

October 28, 2011

I’m nothing special just a point of view
always happy to play with you
but now i think it’s time
i put away my toys
cause tonight i’m mary’s boy

She Rose Sunday

October 28, 2011

I saw her in the morning
she stepped out of the light
i loved her till the sun went down
she moved into the night
i touched her in the evening
the sun set in my eyes
i loved her for a moment
i fell into the sky

she rose sunday
she is now alive again
she rose sunday
alive she’s come again

i saw her in the morning
she came out of the night
i loved her in the evening
i stepped out in the night
she fell down beside me
we fell through the sun
i touched her for a moment
she touched me she was gone

and she rose sunday
she is now alive again
and she rose sunday
alive she cried again
