Going Down Blues    
       


Talk to me white lady
Read for me those cards
Tell me about my future
Am I going to go to far

She said no oh
You're going down

She said boy the devil knows you
He's your only friend
He's standing at the gates now
And he's waiting for the end

She said no oh
You're going down

She said first I see the tower
Then I see the star
The I see the hanged man
And he's drinking in the bar

Oh, you're going down

 
   
Chinese Whispers  
         


Lady please unlock your door
Let them know I've come ashore
my water's sour
Worms are bread
sleepless nights in sleepless beds
she said baby stay with me

I'm the deep sea darkness far and wide
Sexually not satisfied
She said baby take me now
Here I come
And I'm walking on water
Towards the shore

I've played chess with Davy Jones
He stripped me to my skin and bones
She said baby I'll save you
And I'm walking on water
Towards the shore

Here I come
And I'm walking on water
Towards your door

 
   
  Broken  
         


Can you hear her
Can you hear her
In the wasteland
In the wasteland
Hear her calling
Calling to you
From the wasteland
From the wasteland

She feels broken
Broken
Because she can't see the forest for the trees

So send a letter
Say you love her
Say you need her
In the wasteland
Can she hear you
Hear you calling
From the wasteland
From the wasteland

You feel broken
Broken
Because you can't see the forest for the trees
Words were spoken
Now love feels broken
Because you can't seem to tell her what she needs
She feels broken
Broken
And you can't seem to calm the stormy seas
She feels broken
Broken
Because she can't see the forest for the trees

 
   
  A Line in the Sand  
         


Tell me what would you do
If I told you the truth
And I took you by the hand
To see the dust swirl in pools
And a dark desert cool
In an empty wasted land

Tell me what would you do
If this happened to you
Would it help you now
To understand
There's a line in the sand, a line in the sand
It'll keep you from the promised land
It's just a line in the sand

And what would you say
If I told you today
That your mother won't hold your hand anymore
She's broken and tired
She's inflamed with desire
To turn her head and walk away
From the line in the sand, the line in the sand
It'll keep you from the promised land
It's just a line in the sand
It's gonna keep you from the promised land

The refineries burn
And your mother she turns
To watch you stumble into the night
She's run out of tears
Have you run out of fear
Or is your candle still burning bright
You've crossed the line in the sand, the line in the sand
It's gonna keep you from the promised land
It's just a line in the sand

 
   
  Morocco  
       


Oh she's my lady
Oh, she's been my lover
Now she's hiding, hiding undercover
They're going to tell her
She's got to meet her brother
For the honour, the honour of the other

I want to help her
I want to hide her
I want to love her,
But first I've got to find her
She's been hiding,
Hiding undercover
From the honour, the honour of the other

I want to tell her
Baby please don't go
Don't you go back to Morocco

She's a goddess,
Oh she's been a lier
See the witch hunt
The flames are getting higher
All the secrets we tried so hard to cover
Have been discovered, discovered by the other
I want to tell her
Baby please don't go
I've got to tell her
Baby please don't go
I want to tell her
Baby please don't go
Don't you go back to Morocco

She's a goddess,
Oh she's been a lier
See the witch hunt
The flames are getting higher
All the secrets we tried so hard to cover
Have been discovered, discovered by the other
I want to tell her

I want to tell her
Baby please don't go
I've got to tell her
Baby please don't go
I want to tell her
Baby please don't go
Don't you go back to Morocco

Oh she's my lady
Oh, she's been my lover
Now she's hiding, hiding undercover
He's going to kill her
It's going to be her brother
For the honour, the honour of the other
I want to tell her
Baby please don't go
Baby please don't go back to Morocco

 
   
  Black Snake Blues  
         


In the dying, dying wind
Hear the Black Snake sing the blues
In the dying, dying wind
Hear the Black Snake sing the blues
All the saints will fall into sin
And there's nothing you can do

If the devil gives no pardon
Is my waiting all in vain
If the devil gives no pardon
Is my waiting all in vain
If the Black Snake takes my soul
Does the story stay the same

Could you please bathe me down in the river
And please try to save my soul
Could you bathe me down in the river
And please try to save my soul
Is that Black Snake takes my soul
Do you feel the river running cold

Save me please st. Peter
Keep me from the fire
Walk me into heaven
And let me hear the choir

Because I've cried my tears sweet Jesus
And I've fallen into shame
I have cried my tears sweetJesus
And I've fallen into shame
Now the Black Snake has my soul
And the story stays the same

     
  The Rosary  
 
     


I knew a boy once who needed shelter
She put her arms around him
She couldn't help it
Will the rosary swing for me tonight

Do you see that garden
Those heavy roses
There 're all the secrets baby I never told you
Will the rosary swing for me tonight

Will the rosary swing for me tonight
And she said I think so
(c'm on and swing away)

Do you see that garden
Those heavy roses
There are all the secrets darling I should have told you
Will the rosary swing for me tonight

Will the rosary swing for me tonight
And she said I think so
(c'm on and swing away)

Go placidly emits the haste
and live your life filled with grace
The rosary will swing for me
The rosary will swing for me tonight
And she said I will always love you

     
  Baby's Come Undone  
       


It's a guilty listless life
Filled with constant strife
Dancing on a knife
Baby's come undone

All she ever tried
Has always been denied
She's always been outside
Baby's come undone

She's looking for the truth
But al she ever knew
Were faces in the rain
Faces in the rain

I want to see
Sunlight in her hair
She says ...
Baby's come undone

They say ...
Practise what you preach
But it's always out of reach
Look above beneath
Try to find the soul

Those seven deadly sins
Are constantly within
Try again begin
To find the soul
I want to see sunlight in her hair
he says ...
Baby's come undone

   
  Closure  
       


Sentimental, foolish friend
Where's your bucket of gold
Where's the riches
Tell me where's the fame
And where's the angel you sold

You've fallen down
Fallen down
Fallen down
Angel
Turnin' to ground
You've fallen down
Fallen down
Fallen down
Angel

I tried to tell you
I tried in vain
But you turned away from the past
Your sordid lies
They tried to hypnotise
But now they're coming down fast

I waited here
So patiently
But now this highway must end
The winds have changed
My house is rearranged
And I've forgotten my friend

You've fallen down
Fallen down
Fallen down
Angel
Turnin' to ground
You've fallen down
Fallen down
Fallen down
Angel

If you see me somewhere
Have some sympathy and taste
May all your colors fade to black
I'm never coming back

Angel
You've fallen down
Fallen down
Fallen down
Turnin' to ground
Angel

   
  Invocation  
       


Colours falling under
Falling under slowly
Fading into darkness
Fading into night
Colours falling under
I need your sex now
I need your sex now
I'm looking for the light

Disparate for pleasure
Undermined pathways
Looking for a signpost
Leading to the right

Looking for a signpost
The undercurrent takes me
Leading me to darkness fading out of sight
So this is my
My invocation
So this is my
My invocation

Panic plays a purpose
Purpose turns to reason
Reasons for becoming slowly graining sight
Decision at the signpost
I need your sex now
I need your sex now
I'm fading from the light

So this is my
My invocation
So this is my
My invocation

   
  I want you  
         


I'm waiting here
I wait alone
These separate lives
These separate homes
It's leading me down, leading me down

It's not the same
Without you here
Can't stand the pain
Can't stand the tears
They're leading me down, leading me down

I want you, I want you

Those Angel eyes
They saw me fall
I paid the price
I paid it all
leading me down, leading me down

I want you, I want you

I'm waiting here
I wait alone
These separate lives
These separate homes
It's leading me down, leading me down

It's not the same
Without you here
Can't stand the pain
Can't stand the tears
They're leading me down, leading me down

I want you, I want you
