Sweethome Under White Clouds

Sweethome under white clouds A picture on the wall, it says it all I had a dream long time ago, imaginary Like water, I had no colour Running free, eternal beauty And heaven, it was on earth The promised land of milk and honey And I see it now The pain it lasts and all […]

Come To Daddy

[Live versions of the song often began with “If it wasn’t for your mammy or your daddy you wouldn’t be here tonight”] This day, this day seems so long This day, this day goes so slow Like every other day Day in, day out so boring I don’t know, know what to do I have […]

Moments And Mine (Despite Straight Lines)

If I knock on your door will you come out on the street? And ‘ll show you the sun in the sky “Hey, with your prick in your hand you won’t get very far” Said this big fat yellow man But it all seems so confusing, I don’t know which way to turn So I […]

Revenge

Shouting/Crying, things I’d care not to talk about Closing in/I’m closing in, shut down Still I have the memory in my head Vivid/Clear Thinking about the things I’ve said Telling me it’s not me Say I say why? No reason but my own Well, call it now, answer the questions i’m asking myself God, they […]

Twenty Tens (I’ve Been Smoking All Night)

Hey, hey, we’re all alone Can I ask you a question? Come answer some Or is it you lack personality? Can I state my case in case you mind? Or how about what do you think about what I think about? Could it, or is it so, in a conversation? Do you really want to […]
