REMEDY (demo July 14)

you've lived more than 9 lives everybody knows
gunfire and survival
that's just how it goes sometimes
I think of the day I kissed you in New York
Shambles all around me
Hell well she found me
But you
You made me see
Though all's gone wrong
There might be a remedy
I passed you by like a ship that night
I didn't know
If I'd see the sun again before I get old
But I sang and I smiled
You moved at a million miles
Like you always do
There I was drowning in blue
But you
You made me see
Though all's gone wrong
There might be a remedy
Don't know how long sorrow's been my friend
It fused to me like it might never end
Just one look at you is like fireworks and truth
And I feel like something's gonna change.

THE DEAL (demo - October 2016)

Would've taken your tarnished love
Over being apprentice then master in clutching on
When the typhoon hits my ribs
Would've taken your lazy looks
Over this assault
On forgiveness, forever
Farmland stretching out

In the corner of my old eye
Shot of fear
That shade of blue that started it all
A wagon I can't steer
Crows lined down the lane
Have nests far more faulty
And they fight for their survival
They know just who's their rival

And oh rings of 16 diamonds
You'll find a new home
In those arms
Oh the things that I can't hide from
Like in my silver days
I'll still be in the shade

That wasn't the deal
Just as I was clearing
the soil from this sun ray
(Now I must survive)
That wasn't the deal
Forged in St Peters
Born in ancient ruins
(Now I must survive)

Would have gone for a little break
Didn't have to sever
I'm a late bloomer Burned the rumours
Got on the straight too late
Would have swallowed a little stray
Could have bounced right back
Now it's a full on attack
Who finds love in that?
 

VICTORY KIDS

VICTORY KIDS

(J. Elliott/E. Gryner)

He sees the city burn
Melted-down illegal turns
Biker vigils and blackened boys
He’s still making a bit of noise for

Victory kids and their weekend wars
Madness comin through the floor
It’s trickery he’s seen it all before
Train wrecks nobody can ignore
He lets them go
The legend lying low

Club lights up everyone!
Let’s get this freak reunion done
Then paint our eyes dark for McQueen
When it gets hard to be human beings

Oh those Victory kids and their weekend wars
There’s life in them yet but oh what for
It’s trickery he’s seen it at the door
Train wrecks on the Dance Cave floor
He lets them go
the legend lying low
He’s already gone for gold
The legend lying low

Where did the future go?
Everyone wants an android soul

Here comes the end of joy
He’s still making a bit of noise for…

BOY [work in progress]

You're so far away / And sometimes afraid / All the knives they throw / In you I see gold / There in your eyes / So what they'll wait a while / You're spinning for miles and miles / Boy don't despair / The world waits out there / From the moment you came it's always been out of order / Dn't break what can't bend / Do what you can boy.

SWEET NOTHING

Look at me I got a bullet in my heart
And in your hand is where the other five are


What do you think I’d do
Drive to the well to wish for you
Oh no
‘Cause you gave me sweet nothing


Hey surprise I’ve healed after all this time
No more pretending and praying for affection’s sign


What do you think I’d do
Cry to myself cause it never came true
Oh no
You gave me sweet nothing
You gave me sweet nothing
You gave me sweet nothing


How can I feel something
When you took my time
I wasted all my energy on you
I don’t think about you
Like my heart once told me to
Cause nothing’s all you gave me as I recall


[solo]


What do you think I’d do
Drive to the well to wish for you
What do you think I’d do
Cry to myself cause it never came true


Oh no
‘Cause you gave me sweet nothing
You gave me sweet nothing
You gave me sweet nothing…
