Upon The Hill 

Time it unfolds slowly
like my lovers hair so clean and gentle
she spills saw dust on the floor and I cant ignore, I cant ignore
the patterns that she makes with her feet

Read the line’s on her face,they lead me to her lips

like the patterns on the floor show me her hips
and the man outside the door
like the footsteps in the hall
mean nothing to us but soft falling drips

The pines they were dug up we called them fowl
outside the window I see my child
playing with the splinters that fell upon the land, upon the land
and the seeds I gave her growing in her hand,

Time here unwinds slowly
and the sun is often shaded
my lover sold her name to a simple time, a simple time
and she gave her heart away but I give her mine

i walk upon the barricades
to keep myself near constant danger
my lady hums a tune and hangs upon the beam,
an old snake charm to help him dream,
for my youngest lying in the manger

how can I keep this all so fair
with the riders falling so close to our door
the flies they swarm across the trees, but in the breeze
I see the sunrise fall upon the leaves

I hear the birds I hear my mother speak
with old words so soft and gentle
when I die oh when I die, like my brother, like my brother
in-between my father and my mother

In the Bleak Midwinter

In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long ago.

Angels and archangels may have gathered there,
Cherubim and seraphim thronged the air;
But his mother only, in her maiden bliss,
Worshiped the beloved with a kiss.

What can I give him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
What I can I give him: give my heart.

In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long ago, long ago.

Dead and Done

Heaven is a place where people die pretty
Stars don’t lie and there’s cash in the kitty
Running from the rocks, there’s water for the lips
To ease your mouth and bathe your fist

There’s no need for trouble when the road’s all down
The body’s out of work cause the minds in town
The circus has been twice already
My throwing arm is good and my heart is steady

I’m dead and done by the heat of the sun
and I’ll rest my hat in an Autumn field
and I’ll hang my hat in an Autumn field
In an Autumn field

Tell my momma not to worry
The food is sweet and the weather’s been sunny
and I’m well known round a-bout
The local pick pocket it a lay-about

Tell my daddy oh there’s no need for washing
They do it in your sleep when you’re not watching
I’ve already had the neighbors here
Johnny Cash came about and we split a beer

I’m dead and done by the heat of the sun
and I’ll rest my hat in an Autumn field
and I’ll hang my hat in an Autumn field
In an Autumn field

The girls up here sure look swell
They sing like birds, I hear it’s nothing like hell
The local priest says there’s no need for cheatin’
The local wags call it meetin’ and a-greetin’

I’m dead and done by the heat of the sun
and I’ll rest my hat in an Autumn field
and I’ll hang my hat in an Autumn field

Left to Lie

I’m afraid to die
I’m nearly old
I’m almost young
Or so I’m told

They say, time is a healer
Faith is death
Or left to die
I won’t put a strain on another broken chain
0r so I lie, so I lie

 I’m floading down
Like a long lost dream
My savier flew from
His stitched up scene

And I’m afraid to die
I’m nearly old
I’m almost young
Or so I’m told

They say, I would be better
Far from here, and left alone
But now my luck isn’t cheaper
My faith I’ll buy traffic drones
‘Cause I’m still alone
Nowhere to go

I’m floading down
Like a long lost dream
My savier flew from
His stitched up scene

My friends they cry
Will be the first to die
I’m far, far to scared to asking why

‘Cause I’m afraid to die
I’m nearly old
I’m almost young
Or so I’m told

 The Borough Mill

Chained to a Wounded Gun again,
Firing Blood on Blood,
Lost among the empty spills,
With a hound of hell in love

A Saviour on the Picket Line,
Souls do crack and tears will roll,
The Odious Sweat of the Borough Mill,
So this time will take its toll

Far Away, Far Away,
To have the tide and turn

Far Away, Far Away,
To rush the day and learn,
To rush the day and learn

As Edna plays the serenade,
Faded to a black and tan,
The coal draws black on chimney spires,
For all those working men

She Lost her love on old red brick,
Spitting up iron lungs,
She’s chained to a wounded gun again,
And her Boys were oh so young

Far Away, Far Away,
To have the tide and turn

Far Away, Far Away,
To rush the day and learn,
To rush the day and learn

Dancers Dance Into The Night

Dancers dance into the night,
So fair across the street,
There feet dont gather dust,
There bringing the light

This place leaves the sirens on,
It takes off all its clothes,
Its foaming from the mouth,
I wish you would come

You don’t know where I’m going,
Where the rivers are flowing,
Your world is your lie

You don’t know what I’m saying,
Or the games that you’re playing,
Your world is your lie

The same old fight in this place,
The same old ground in my place,
The same old sounds fill this place of my town

A stairway takes you past the morning,
To places that we meet,
Showing the winter rust,
My heart is in mourning

A ruptured fence that holds me in,
Which means were bound to fleet,
A god for the un-just,
My favourite sin

You don’t know where I’m going,
Where the rivers are flowing,
Your world is your lie

You don’t know what I’m saying,
Or the games that you’re playing,
Your world is your lie

The same old fight in this place,
The same old ground in my place,
The same old sounds fill this place of my town.

Being a Mockingbird

The night it rests like a hammerblow and breaks the morning it brings,
The mad men are down on the crypt floor sleeping through there favours and sins,
I trained myself to be hardened and greet the bird like the day,
I soared to greet lusty gamblings and drenched myself in the dusk where they lay,

 I exchanged the dark for the darkness and hung the belt from the wing,
So the traitors may part with there malice but ill remember everything,
I stood up and danced round the heckles and planted the leaf from the book,
I admit I love my romances the blackbird, the wren, the rook,

 The church house wont harbour the coffins but the docks they wittle there ships,
To the pleasure the feast and the memory and the soar of kissing her lips,
I gave up myself to the dawning, of the morning bird in first flight,
I thought I ran the road of the pauper,

I lost it all in the night, I lost it all in the night

The Rattle and Roll

I scream for peace from the clutches of the street
Now who do you think that you’re saving?
from the gust of glow my heart will flow
But my love is like the raven

No bitter past could try to unmask
The true four words you’ve been saying
The brithis class will devide your tasks
But my love is like the raven

So gather your boys and hold on
This ain’t the place to be harmed
Ohh no no no no

So gather your boys and hold on
This ain’t the place to be harmed
Ohh no no no no

For it’s the rattle and roll, coming over.

If the hands that strive and the darkest lie
Could write down the words their exchanging
Then my ring neck may bring the death
But my love is still the raven

 No bitter fling could force you to begin
The true four lie you’ve been craving
But they stand as ghost on the wit drum coast
And fly just like the raven

 So gather your boys and hold on
This ain’t the place to be harmed
Ohh no no no no

So gather your boys and hold on
This ain’t the place to be harmed
Ohh no no no no

For it’s the rattle and roll, coming over
For it’s the rattle and roll

Who Have You Been Loving

When the world holds out his flag, the sun will fall across the plain
I will hold out my hands and take the blame
And when the weather falls to cold, and the frost ravages the lanes
I will bow down my head in shame

Who have you been loving ? Who have you been loving ?
Who have you been loving ? Who have you been loving ?

If someone is unheard then its gonna be me
For the tears that taint your heart, your so happy to be free
But if your no better now, then you’ve ever been
You owe me an apology

Before the dusk falls to dark, I have you banished from my mind
I just need a moments rest to make you mine
And when the critter view is gone, with our last drawn line
Beyond the rusted sin of gloat you had you time

Who have you been loving ? Who have you been loving ?
Who have you been loving ? Who have you been loving ?

If someone is unheard then its gonna be me
For the tears that taint your heart, your so happy to be free
But if your no better now, then you’ve ever been
You owe me an apology, you owe me an apology

Two years old

I lost my english soul,
Pulling out the corpse,
Sheltering in the Trenches again,
crying for a lose,
I let my arms down,
walked away in a trance,
there’s parts of me layed out,
all over France

So I took my last waltz,
Got caught up in the wire,
wrote a letter for my love,
as I head from the fire,
an old soldier carried me,
way to the coast, bathe my wounds in the sea,
im in the hands of a ghost, I’m in the hands of a ghost

Their boats came on in,
I tried to run away,
I got taken half by the throat,
in the burning light of day
set down with the iron punch,
so broken and alone,
left my blood on the beach for the tide to take me home
these wounds that I shed inside,
two years old

So my girl she gave up,
she had taken me for dead,
she had forgot all her promises and everything she said,
living in the darkest dream,
I rose up in the cold
these wounds that I have outside,
are two years old,
these wounds that I have outside,
are two years old,
two years old

Living in the past,
living by the mile I toke the same walk down,
as I did as a child,
the flags flew for a man,
unaware of the fate no one saw me walk down, on my very last parade,
so thoughts turn to dust,
as I headed for the mound,
I strayed up the part, waiting for the count,
living in the darkest dream so broken and all alone

These pain that I have inside is two years old
these scars that I have inside are more than two years old
these pain that I have inside is two years old
these scars that I have inside are more than two years old
is more than two years(x5)

My darling Bell

If I fell to my knees and turned my head away would you hide from me,
Would you hide from me, when that day comes by would you hide from me.

If I turned the steeples black and feasted on your day
Would you come for me, would you come for me
Would you rise up and sink the hand that watches me.

When I try to keep the ghost that’s burning through my day,
and the smoke that stains the street won’t keep her scent away
Will you cry for me, would you cry for me.

Because down beneath all troubled men
Cowers a lonely man with the world upon his back and his courage in his hand
So won’t you comfort me, won’t you comfort me,
Will you please come back soon and comfort me.

I’ve been wondering in and out of all this troubled painted red,
Fire rages from my feet leaving blazing sorrow burnt out on the street.

I’m drunk with pines again Im drunk with bitter rage
And frightened of the fall but wrapped up in its gaze.

Oh my love, oh my love, you’re my darling Bell,
You’re my darling Bell, my darling Bell, babe.

When the world becomes to close for me to see from the inside,
when I’m wrapped in cryptic chains will see through all there lies
And won’t you speak for me, won’t you lay down your words and speak for me.

When my riches turn to rags and I’m dead from time to time
Can I rest my weary head can I swing upon the vine
That you hold for me, that you hold, that you hold that you hold for me.

I’ve been wondering in and out of all this troubled painted red,
Fire rages from my feet leaving blazing sorrow burnt out on the street.

I’m drunk with pines again I’m drunk with bitter rage
And frightened of the fall but wrapped up in its gaze,

Oh my love, oh my love, you’re my darling Bell,
you’re my darling Bell, my darling Bell, babe.

Cold Cold Loving

Laid out on the rug like the old dead dawn,
And it separates the darkness that blindly masquerades you in the fog.
The strikes on the lines and the clutter it brings,
Just as long as my words they fall soft on your delicate wings.

Maybe somewhere down the line, you’ll have your place in time.
Maybe somewhere down the line we can have our place in time.

And its cold cold loving that shatters my heart, it shatters my heart.
But its old old loving that keeps my heart, it keeps my heart.

Oh it keeps my heart, but it breaks my heart,
It keeps my heart, breaks my heart.

A bound radio that dampens your sound,
And it brings hell to the manic and forces his sails to the ground.

So when the voters share there thoughts with the heads of the table,
Just as long as the night shows to you I’m willing and able.

Maybe somewhere down the line, you’ll have your place in time.
Maybe somewhere down the line we can have our place in time.

And its cold cold loving that shatters my heart, it shatters my heart.
But its old old loving that keeps my heart, it keeps my heart.

Oh it keeps my heart, bu it breaks my heart,
It keeps my heart, breaks my heart.

 Let Me Sign

She was standing there by the broken tree
Her hands were all twisted she was pointing at me
I was damned by the light coming out of her eyes
She spoke with a voice that disrupted the sky
She said ‘ Come on over to the bitter shade,
I will wrap you in my arms and you’ll know you’ve been saved’
Let me sign, let me sign, can’t fight the devil so just let me sign.

I was out for a drink in a Soho bar
The air was smoked out liked a cheap cigar
She rose out of her seat like a painted ghost
She was the woman that I wanted the most
As she reached for my arm I gave her my hand
I said ‘Lay me down easy let me understand’
Let me sign, let sign, can’t fight the devil so just let me sign.

As I walked through the door she was still in my head
As I entered the room she was laid there in bed
She reached out for me all twisted in black
I was on my way down, never coming back
let me sign, let me sign, can’t fight the devil so just let me sign
let me sign, let me sign, can’t fight the devil so just let me sign.
