Track Name: Papa Don't Preach No More
My father's dark shadow lies over these hills
screaming like a baby and he's standing there still
my son my beloved let this be the last time
your troubles mix like blood deep in with mine
I'm weak on my back and all I can see is the birds in the sky
their hunger's pointing at me

Papa don't preach no more
papa don't preach no more
papa don't preach no more

My daughters told me secrets I don't want to know
of the filthy fucking nights when they laid their bodies low
my mother left town chased out in a rage
I was kicking in her belly at a very young age

Papa don't preach no more
papa don't preach no more
papa don't preach no more
papa don't preach no more
Track Name: Your Lover's Bed
You wait up all night
to watch it dawn on her skin
and you're so tired
the gaps won't fill in
the morning's dark tide
you kick and you bite
as the silence pulls out
of this perfect night

nothing's too much to fathom
black soil from a hole
thrown sadly to the coffin
with trimmings of gold
fill the sky with a beauty
this song can't bring
lord empties your glasses
and fills you with sin

oh she said, you're not who you think you are
who do you think you are
In your lover's bed

hey wo hey wo

When your parting's past
nothing you thought was wrong
is really gonna matter
cos you're selfish and gone
you scream and you shout
"Lord I'm not with your lover
just burn down the ceiling on the rooms up above

oh she said, you're not who you think you are
who do you think you are
in your lover's bed

hey wo hey wo
