I Cherish The Heartbreak More Than The Love That I Lost

I cherish the heartbreak more than the love that I lost
I treasure this heartache regardless of the hurt or the cost
Your dreams not my dream
They are candy coated kisses
Strictly for the birds
A reality that you couldn’t hope to hold sway

I cherish the heartbreak more than the love that I lost
A happy ever after well baby it just isn’t us
Keepsakes and souvenirs of trials and tribulations
Of crybabies and puppy love
I defend but contend that the worlds got enough.


We’re Supposed To Be In Love

With chemistry and cigarettes
I sought to soothe those dusty regrets
Of protocols from old school yards
And I wonder why is it always this hard

We’re supposed to be in love
We’re supposed to be in love
So how come we learnt so many different ways and means of breaking our hearts?

I lay my head beneath the soil
To sabotage to wreck and foil
Even resist under duress
Any shot at our happiness

We’re supposed to be in love
We’re supposed to be in love
We’re supposed to be in love
So how come we learnt so many different ways and means of breaking our hearts?

With body bruised and body bent
Our victories are so easily spent
On fumbled pride and lazy sentiment

We’re supposed to be in love
We’re supposed to be in love
We’re supposed to be in love
We’re supposed to be in love
So how come we learnt so many different ways and means of breaking our hearts?

We’re supposed to be in love
We’re supposed to be in love


When The Lights Go Out

I sat at your bedside
Fumbling in the sorrow
Holding onto your hand
My back against tomorrow
There’s a beauty in this
A privilege in parting I know

The years turned to days
The days turned to hours
Penitent in black
Pressing flesh amongst the flowers
I regret a lot and said a lot of things
I never thought I would say
But I think about her
I think about it everyday

Well the night was ours
We were swinging in the stars
When the lights went out
She was burning bright
When we said goodnight
When the lights went out
Oh honey when go out
Will I see you again?

Plucking out their heartstrings
Rattling their cages
Butter fingered lovers
Ripping out the pages
To the rules of the game
They’re never willing to play
But I think about her
I think about her everyday

Well the night was ours
We were swinging in the stars
When the lights went out
She was burning bright
When we said goodnight
When the lights went out
Oh honey when go out
Will I see you again?

We traced her steps across linoleum in kitten heels
And pressed our faces in the crush of velveteen and satin trim
She kept her faith on windowsills in plastic figurines
Dedicated to a life spent letting go go gone

Well the night was ours
We were swinging in the stars
When the lights went out
She was burning bright
When we said goodnight
When the lights went out
Oh honey when go out
Will I see you again?
Well the night was ours
We were swinging in the stars
When the lights went out
She was burning bright
Into the middle of the night
When the lights went out
Oh honey when go out
Will I see you again?
Will I see you again?
Will I see you again?


Armies Of Darkness

All of the fear
And frustration
And the sorrow
We employ

The misfortune of others
Of those others
We enjoy

Tell the armies of darkness
And the vampires
They have won
They made whores of our daughters
And victims of our sons

I can have no part in this
The black swollen part of this
No I don’t want no part of this
Do you?

You’re gonna get yours
And it’s coming
Unless we learn to
Forgive and forget

I will have no part of this
The black swollen part if this
I don’t want to be part of this
Do you?


This Time It’s Over

We were never gonna be the ones
To set the world alight
Eclipse the sun
But lover oh what have you done?
This time it’s over

There’s a shadow where your heart should be
A broken window to your sanity
But you know that you’re the one for me
This time it’s over

You gave me these fingers and feet of clay
They were never yours to give away
Why’s it always up to you?

Little things mean more to me
The briefest smile a joy to be
In the best seats at the A&E
This time it’s over

You know I’ll always be back for more
Even when my heart and hands are raw
Dragging myself across the kitchen floor
This time it’s over

You gave me these fingers and feet of clay
They were never yours to give away
Why’s it always up to you?

We were never gonna be the ones
To set the world alight
Eclipse the sun
Oh lover oh what have you done?
This time it’s over


Shame

Shame
Oh Shame
Unhealthy desires

Shame
Oh Shame
Fingers in fires

You’ve taken liberties
That re-define obscenity
Enough’s never enough

Shame
Oh so lame
Excuses I’m tired

Of the vanity
We value oh so carelessly
Enough’s never enough
Oh shame

Of the vanity
We value oh so careless
Loves never enough
Oh shame
Oh Shame
Oh Shame
It’s our shame
Shame
Oh oh Shame


Twist Of The Knife

A one way conversation
Of mindless sensation
Beauty’s never been so misunderstood
She wanted to be counted
Not labeled and pinned and mounted
She has done all that she thought that she could
By honing anonymity
With a savagery to make you cry
Twist of the knife
Twist of the knife
Twist of the knife

A coven of cold companions
All vying in their battalions
Picking at holes in their humility
Measuring perfect faces
Stranded behind glass cases
Acutely aware of their fragility
Cut silhouettes from shadows cast
By a second handed fantasy

Twist of the knife
Twist of the knife
Twist of the knife

She cradled her reflection
And she was in love

Twist of the knife
Twist of the knife
Twist of the knife

Twist of the knife
Twist of the knife
Twist of the knife
Twist of the knife


Veils

I have never fired a gun
Laid down my life for anyone
But I have never lost a son

From tenement and sink estate
Conscripts poster boys they wait
Swept up by the Queen and State

Were you there in the Chapel
Singing glory hallelu
Let common sense prevail
For they no not what they do

Lose the boy to make the man
See the world in jagged lands
Face down in the desert sands

Bang the drum and draw the veil
For Helmand and for Passchendaele
For Helmand and for Passchendaele

Pick a side if you want to
From the safety of your bed
Let the fingers be pointed
But let glory claim it’s dead

Were you there in the Chapel
Singing glory hallelu
Let common sense prevail
For they no not what they do
Pick a side if you want to
From the safety of your bed
Let the fingers be pointed
But let glory claim it’s dead

I have never fired a gun
Laid down my life for anyone
But I have never lost a son


A Misery Of Love

Attraction is submission
Whatever you like it’s an unwitting pact of attrition
There’s a price we will pay for this union
There’s a poverty of love

Did you get what you wanted?
If you could have seen what she could have been
But maybe you did
Oh to smother another lover
The duplicity of love

Unstuck then
Out of luck when
Compassion was unrecognisable

Mistaken
Forsaken
By love oh by someone who cares

Seroxat
Tramadol
Paroxatine
Ritalin stuff it in
Come one and come all
Romance was dead on arrival
Just a casualty of love

The blame oh the blame oh the blame
And the grieving
Are only partially more acceptable than the thought of you leaving
It’s the price that we paid for this union
We made a misery of love


What Am I Supposed To Do Without You Now?

Your face Iscariot
It’s taken all we’ve got
Who knows what fate allows
What am I supposed to do without you now?

We tore ourselves apart
To get back to the start
Lord knows what faith endows
What am I supposed to do without you now?

I am a stranger
I live day by
Watching you piece by piece
Fade away

Our love played by the rules
How could nature be so cruel?
Lord knows what faith endows
But what am I supposed to do without you now?
Lord knows what faith endows
But what am I supposed to do without you now?
What am I supposed to do without you now?
