Oh now won't you recline with me some time You can see how the royalty are falling behind And only the wild ones need apply There's an opening here if you want to get down til you die And if the moon is dismembering the sky Or the sun is revealing what the night left behind When you decide that it's my time You can book out my bedroom for the rest of your life
2.
Baby baby do you wanna get down with me And feel the earth move beneath your dirty feet Lady lady did you ever feel more replete Than when i filled your mind with the filthiest of speech I want what everyone wants Honey honey do you like it when i touch you there Where your halo meets the colour of your hair Woman woman do you want to try something new Where we invent a new shade of extraordinary blue I want what everyone wants When i was a boy I longed to carve my name into something so divine Your fahrenheit A way to launch my head into the twilight With arms wide I'll float forever wondering how you could be mine A fault line And now you lay beside me i can not describe Lovers licking faces in a feeding frenzy - a silver screen fantasy is never the enemy, When a bodyslam a day is what the doctor ordered, just a criminal conversation with predatory eyes, a tongue worming its wicked way round a maze of unknowns with a hellish howl that's rattling the core of your bones, oh lord i'm telling you that violence is never the way, and it's all the rage, it's all the rage, it's all the rage, it's all the rage

You'll always see me with my flag unfurled Cos I'm a mercenary from another world I've got a clipboard here with thermal sights And I sleep with my eyes open wide all night Looking for a home? Then come and talk to me Sparkling teeth and sparkling eyes I'm on your side, that's guaranteed Tell me now my friend, just what can you afford If you sell your organs, skin and bones You could set your sights on so much more I've got some flash new wheels and a head for heights And the thought of sleeping keeps me up all night If you see me in my cheap black suit You'll know the clock is ticking and it ticks for you Looking for a home? Then come and talk to me Sparkling teeth and sparkling eyes I'm on your side, that's guaranteed Tell me now my friend, just what can you afford If you sell your organs, skin and bones You could set your sights on so much more

I'm a tired old man of war And i forgot what i'm fighting for But i wave my arms in rage And destroy what comes my way But as i raise my bloodshot eyes To the torn and stormy sky It's a foregone conclusion That they'll forget me when i'm gone Decimate to accumulate Accumulate and disintegrate As i rest my scarred old head On the ground that forms my bed And the other troops storm by With their banner held up high Not a single one can see What has now become clear to me: That a belief embracing war Is no belief worth fighting for Decimate to accumulate Accumulate and disintegrate It's only ever on the outside that they are not like you
5.
Will you ever put your name to something new Or simply sail the circus you were born into Cos I have been wrong and I have been right But I have seen all the ways that you lie And would I be sad if you were to die? Well it's not the first emotion that springs to mind All around the siren sound is summoning us to see The sentimental shipwreck of the land we used to be So put your hand in my hand and I'll twist it behind your back And walk you to the border post and we can see how you feel about that Don't look now, he's spouting deathbed politics A hissing ninny trying to save his dignity You are a dog You are a rat It's not fair on beasts to compare like that Your job is to say what's troubling your mind All that we hear is somebody else's lines All around the siren sound is summoning us to see The sentimental shipwreck of the land we used to be So put your hand in my hand and I'll twist it behind your back And walk you to the border post and we can see how you feel about that Please report anything auspicious to a member of staff

When i met you at the front door you were smiling, you were laughing. With the lights on you were something, when they died down you were nothing Were you cold As the talk swung off the hinges you were speaking in a language that you picked up from a cartoon where the hero was a cretin. Were you cold It's an age thing, this dissembling, this pretending that you're stupid In the real world, when you're writing, you're a poet, you're a cupid When you're cold Is it truly so debasing to embrace who you really are now When you're back home with the lights low do you ever sink so far down Were you cold There's a fine line with my patience and you're walking like a dead man I should take you to the basement and reveal the secret when the door slams Were you cold When I left you you were bleeding, you were shaking, you were crying As the door swung off the hinges you were thinking you were dying

I was already up and already dressed With a gun in my hand and a little distressed That time of the morning's better left to the wolves Slinking back to the den with a bellyful Cos i cant see you any more after today Been forced to play my hand this time And after it i'll be blown away A whisky and water to steady the nerves A kiss while you slept that i didnt deserve A last look around and a note on the door Saying 'don't try to find me i am no more' Cos i cant see you any more after today A man that i know has got to go And when he's gone i'll be blown away There's cold in the dark and cold in my bones There's cold in my eyes and my heart and i bring cold home I've killed men before but only in the dark With a list of good reasons and a chequebook spark And never in the knowledge that each shot true Was a knife in the back of my life with you Cos i cant see you any more after today Been forced to pay my hand this time And after it i'll be blown away Cos i cant see you any more after today A man that i know has got to go And when he's gone i'll be blown away There's cold in the dark and cold in my bones There's cold in my eyes and my heart and i bring cold home

A friend told me he wanted to get high And i could see no reason not to try We smoked the world and drank the raging seas And every whisp and drop washed over me I want to walk beside you today You are my friend tonight and always A friend told me he longed to float back home And i could see no reason not to go We packed our bags and picked up our guitars And slunk like foxes past the darkened bars I want to walk beside you today You are my friend tonight and always And i want you to know That you're on my mind I'll never stand down I'm by your side I can try and i can fly And i can crash back down But just this time you're on my mind And i never left the ground Just one hour, a spiral tower Of bleak and wasted time And at the peak a molten heap Of everything that's mine I want to walk beside you today You are my friend tonight and always And i want you to know That you're on my mind I'll never stand down I'm by your side

Underground 07:35
I got the tube into the office today I usually take the bus or walk all the way But i'm going underground I'd hoped to God that it was dark as the night That i could creep around, be hidden from sight A lost soul underground Oh won't you ride with me My four letter friend come on Oh shine a light on me My four letter friend come on The night's eternal and the days are a dream Your pallid countenance is barely ever seen A sad soul underground A clipper, jerry can, some kindling and wine Is all we need to make this shitty world fine A bonfire underground Oh won't you ride with me My four letter friend come on Oh shine a light on me My four letter friend come on
10.
I feel better when i'm awake but i am lost without you I feel better when i'm awake and i feel down There's a feeling when i'm asleep that i am nought without you There's a feeling when i'm asleep that's too far down. We all fall down It's a slow fall But we all fall down And when i clamour it's all for love and not for lust or fancy And when i clamour it's all for love but all falls down But when i'm sleeping i stay as silent as a stone, i'm empty And when i'm sleeping i hold my tongue and all falls down We all fall down All fall down It's a slow fall But we all fall down
