Anyone (lyrics)

April 12, 2010

Here are the lyrics for an old song, possibly soon to be revisited in our next recordings…

Anyone

As far as love is concerned,
blood will always win
over petty pleasures of the flesh
and a Devil’s lust for skin.

Words are footsteps on the moon;
written in our bones,
but fast-flowing rivers leave no
sharp-edged stones.

If you ever needed anyone,
I’ll be there just as soon
as I’ve finished what I’m doing.

I’d like to call you up,
but I know you’re very busy,
and I’d like to see you more,
but I don’t want to drag you with me.

Isabella, sleep with Angelo
and save me from my grave,
I’ve still got some of that fire left;
there’s still enough of me left to save.

From Russia with Love Lyrics…

December 30, 2009

This song is written about the Russian spy who died a couple of years ago now, Alexander Litvinyenko. He was poisoned with polonium-210 after meeting two KGB agents at a restaurant in London’s Soho. They both denied any involvement, as did Putin.

He accused many Government figures of corruption and assasination, and, after repeated warnings, he was murdered. His last words were:

“You may succeed in silencing one man but the howl of protest from around the world will reverberate, Mr Putin, in your ears for the rest of your life. May God forgive you for what you have done, not only to me but to beloved Russia and its people”

Death-spray chokes my lungs

Locks up my tongue

Can’t cage the secrets sung

With chemicals I can barely pronounce

I’m ready to announce

The truth is ready to pounce

And I gave up reading the news

Many years ago

I read toilet walls now

They tell me everything I need to know

I died with my family near

And men with flashbulbs and notepads

Found out I was here

Observe me where I lay

I turn my head away

To hear my little boy say

‘I painted Daddy a picture Mum

But why is he so sleepy?’

And I prayed for him and I prayed for everyone

So this is what you get

For opening your mouth

Little wonder so many choose to obey

You have said very little

For someone with so much to say

So this is what you get

For opening your mouth

Little wonder so many choose to obey

You have said very little

For someone with so much to say

In your conscience I will stay

In sleepless nights

You will pay

And next time my name is said

A Raven will tread

Upon your head

And peck out your eyes

Drag you up into the skies

To me where I’ll sit there and grin

And ask why did you bring him here?

With his record he’ll never get in.

Some Lyrics…

October 9, 2009

Now then, some of you have been asking us for the lyrics to our free track give away ‘”9 Pieces Of Silk“. So we decided we’d not only post up those lyrics but we’d also included the lyrics of 2 songs which will feature on our forthcoming debut EP “The Only Way To Travel” due to be released on 360 degree music on December 1st. We’re very much looking forward to our launch party at Puregroove on 1st. See you there.

Until then, you’d better get learning the words so you can all sing along like you wrote it!

9 Pieces Of Silk


I’ve got nine pieces of silk
And a black and white armband
I’ve got shoes made out of stone
And a silver rabbit in my hand
Today

All the men have been shot down
And the women are taking over
I’ve got the passion of New Eve
Peering over my shoulder
Today

I said i loved your body
What more could you possibly want from me?
I came to all your parties
I came to them all

My mother reads the cards
In a caravan on Brighton pier
My father ran away
But I did not shed a tear until
Today

My garden is full of holes
Where my Granddad tried to bury himself
My sister sits at home
Drinking to good health
Today

I said I loved your body
What more could you possible want from me?
I came to all your parties
I came to them all




Jumbo Jet

I’ve sat on an Alp as if it were my throne
But I can’t describe the feeling I get
Staring out the window of a jumbo jet
It’s all so real

I’ve stood in the dead sea like a miser’s bath
But if there’s a better feeling I’ve not felt it yet
Staring out the window of a jumbo jet
It’s all so real

Take me back to my home
Please say it’s raining there

I’m Icarus, I’m Gulliver
But I can’t describe the feeling I get
Staring out the window of a jumbo jet
It’s all so real

Quilted beige and candy floss
If there’s a better feeling I’ve not felt it yet
Staring out the window of a jumbo jet
It’s all so real

Take me back to my home
Please say it’s raining there
Take me back to my home
Please say it’s raining there

I feel a languishment
But that’s all it is
I can’t describe the feeling i get
Staring out the window of a jumbo jet

Take me back to my home
Please say it’s raining there
Take me back to my home
Please say it’s raining there
Take me back to my home
Please say it’s raining there
Take me back to my home
Please say it’s raining there





Clown and Out Blues

Do you want to know
How I came to be this way?
Why my pint glass is empty
Why I’ve been here all day?
Why my face has grown long
Why I sway on my chair?
Why there’s holes in my soles
Why there’s grey in my hair?

I was a child’s entertainer
Once upon a time
I made people laugh
Once upon a time
A long time ago

I don’t work no more
I’ve signed on the dole
Kids nowadays
Would rather play on their games consoles
Because a flower that squirts
And a man in big shoes
Must seem pretty lame
Compared to Tekken 2

I was a child’s entertainer
Once upon a time
I made people laugh
Once upon a time
A long time ago

My last custard pie
Has long since been thrown
My face-paint and make-up
Are now the only things I own
Because when your down and out
It’s nice to be able to say
That a smile
Is just a brush-stroke away

I was a child’s entertainer
Once upon a time
I made people laugh
Once upon a time
A long time ago
