Track Name: Falling Down Your Stairs
There was such a sweet smile on my face
I lay in my bed there and dreamt
I was dreaming of someone
and into my room she crept
she was just pushing a stare
that woke me up with such a fright
she started singing to me
and she could sing it the whole fucking night
while I bled like...........

I'm falling down
I'm falling down your stairs

I was sliding down her legs
they were long and all milky white
just as i realized they were standing above my wife
she said "darling don't you know that I don't even care"
she stood their laughing at me at the top of the fucking stairs
while I bled like.......

I'm falling down
I'm falling down your stairs

all things must have an end
and mine was too close to reach
I looking for someone
or something that I could teach
she said "Darling don't you know I'm always gonna be there"
she stood there laughing at me
from the top of the fucking stairs
while I bled like.......

I'm falling down
I'm falling down your stairs
Track Name: Easy Lover
Don't know myself lately darling
or these pale shaking hands
I'm curled up like a mess on the floor
but I still feel like a man

reaching out for my easy lover
she's my very best friend
but now she's gone

I find now that when my pulse aches
I take all trivial things
yes I try to chase them right out
in hope you walk back in
but I'm pointing a finger at myself
and a gun where you don't stand

reaching our for my easy lover
she's my very best friend
but now she's gone

well I'll be better soon
then I won't need you
Track Name: Frozen Sand
The graffiti'd harbour walls wait for water to flow through
to wash off the words I wrote there for you
My bones as dry as the sand teased by these ocean waves
kicking over castles I was building for days.

Don't wait til the summer's gone and the sky's a darker blue
tears will freeze on my face as I wait for you.

As sure as night the waves rose up as the sun broke through
I was looking for a sign that was you.
I gave in like a drunken whore and prayed to get washed away
I woke up without you in the very same place.

Don't wail till the summer's gone and the sky's a darker blue
tears will freezed on my face as I wait for you.

My baby shed her skin it lays there on the ground
still she makes not a sound
my brain's been crumblin'
and it's shouting at me now
still I laugh like a clown

Don't wail till the summer's gone and the sky's a darker blue
tears will freezed on my face as I wait for you.
The tears will freeze on my face as I wait for you
Track Name: Stolen Angels
I'm gonna steal the angels from under your nose
the shoulders they look over won't be like what they have known
where once they floated down through your garden in the spring
now they can't stay beautiful, the blackness swallows everything
so I'm gonna steal the angels from under your nose
pack them in a 40 foot and send them all back down that road

where every worn out mother with a belly full of hunger should know
that all the good and bad in the earth where we will one day follow

They're all heading south now while we float up away
I'm going to the promised land darling it's written on your face
oh sisters please don't hold me I'm a proud and solemn man
I'll turn your day to night time and burn your little house til it's sand

where every worn out mother with a belly full of hunger should know
that all the good and bad in the earth where we will one day follow

where every worn out mother with a belly full of hunger should know
that all the good and bad in the earth where we will one day follow
where every worn out mother with a belly full of hunger should know
that all the good and bad in the earth where we will one day follow
Track Name: Devastating Ways
Falling asleep on my stool
drooling and wasted waiting up all night for you
I won't let this light burn blue
the way that it shines can bring out the worst in you
so I'll beat out the same tired tune
the neighbours will complain
but I'm not really sure about who.

Oh my devastating ways
I have overstated my case
that I speak the truth
when I have only shaken it loose

Come back I have no excuse
you can take all the credit
cos I've used up any that I was due
down tools and bring on that curse
that holds out it's arms
to protect me from something much worse
and the sunsets were always in view
on the bed where we lay while I fed off
what was left of you.

Oh my devastating ways
I have overstated my case
that I speak the truth
when I have only shaken it loose

Oh my devastating ways
I have overstated my case
that I speak the truth
when I have only shaken it loose
shaken it loose
shaken it loose
shaken you loose
Track Name: Rumble of Rosary
I was drifting through, it was no concern to you , I felt the rumble of a rosary. My father knealt there weekping while I just took a beating at the bottom of the family tree. There was too much thinking and I could not help for drinking so I swalloed up a gin colour see. I took too big a biter from my last Dublin night and now's all repeating on me.

If I know where I was going then I might not make it through
sat here facing the wall in a room with a view

I got such a fright I was blinded by the the light that the pills were helping me see. No people wait in line while I'm covered in pine stealing all ther light on my. I was sucess I was in my favourite dress and I was clean from head to toe for my family and my friends well all that now depends cos half of them I don't even know.

If I know where I was going then I might not make it through
sat here facing the wall in a room with a view
Track Name: Pylons, Purples and Pinks
So many beautiful women in this town
til I come around
Their kids jump on the trampoline
falling through a summer breeze as it holds 'em down

Well I'm telling you the last piece of truth
You'll never grow up just enough to understand

The pylons, purples and pinks are disappearing behind the clouds.
It leaves this town in silence, the sound effects of violence can still be heard. I think there's gonna be a scene. When I break it won't be clean shall I eave

Well I'm telling you the last piece of truth
You'll never grow up just enough to understand
You'll never grow up just enough to be a man

So many beautiful women leave this town when I come around....
Track Name: Graveyard Lounge
I woke up to look like a wreck
Fingernails were stuck in my neck
I came home and how my wife wept
When I said
“I’ll leave now in search of a crisis”
Fell in love with somebody’s vices
I don’t know why I shouted her down

And dragged her out here,
Somewhere far from this town
But there’s no such place as the graveyard lounge

I let go of my mother’s hand when the last thing
I was was a man
Watch me now I’ll move the truth around

I’ll drag it out here somewhere far from this town
But there’s no such place as the graveyard lounge

If you decide I’m not worth the trouble
I’ll come back more alive than before

I’ll drag you out here somewhere far from this town
But there’s no such place as the graveyard lounge
No there’s no such place as the graveyard lounge……………….
Track Name: Midnight In Brazil
When it's 4 in the morning and it's midnight in Brazil
The warm air round her body is what holds her there still
while I lie awake on a bed, I would otherwise just freeze
if not for the warm embrace that I know never leaves

I could be your bad seed, the worst thing you could know
let me be your misery
put me out now when you go
I could be your bad seed baby

She will never get through that door she's tapping at
I could be her coward baby's not so certain of that
while I've got some secrets to keep
baby you don't wanna know
put your fingers in your ears now darling
1,2,3, here I go

I could be your bad seed, the worst thing you could know
let me be your misery
put me out now when you go
I could be your bad seed, the worst thing you could know
let me be your misery
put me out now when you go
Track Name: The Road Rarely Runs Out Of Signs
oh mother please fill my cup in the morning
I feel I'm the leak in your water tank
though the things that you do keep my blood still flowing
yeah it flows and it flows but gives you no thanks

and why should I think of the bad times we're having
there was a time when I thought, there's not much at all
and it hurts me to see you out there wingwalking
cos I'm stuck here at home and I can barely even crawl

for the moonlight on a winter's morning
brightens up even my, my most darkened times
and through muddied windows and windscreen wipers
that road it rarely runs out of signs
that road it rarely runs out of signs
that road it rarely runs out of signs

this fever I got feels like murder tonight
I will tighten my belt sir though I'll almost choke
and I must try not to think that I've seen the light
I'd only use all it's power to light my last smoke

for the moonlight on a winter's morning
brightens up even my, my most darkened times
and through muddied windows and windscreen wipers
that road it rarely runs out of signs
that road it rarely runs out of signs
that road it rarely runs out of signs

for the moonlight on a winter's morning
brightens up even my, my most darkened times
and through muddied windows and windscreen wipers
that road it rarely runs out of signs
that road it rarely runs out of signs
that road it rarely runs out of signs
that road it rarely runs out of signs
