Miss Death

 

Miss Death I know you’re watching me

Miss Death I feel you’re close

Miss Death I feel your cold bad breath

Miss Death Miss Death Miss Death

 

Miss Death I’ve heard about your loneliness

Miss Death you’ve heard about mine

tonight I’ll take your cold pale hand

Miss Death Miss Death Miss Death

 

Miss Death, I salute your beauty

I’m a soldier of life

but tonight I’ll be a partisan

tonight you’ll be my wife

 

 

 

Blood

 

I’ve been wearing your crown

like a piece of jewellery

and I’ve been speaking your tongue

without sense or meaning

I can’t blame you for thinking

a good boat for me is one that is sinking

 

but give me a cup of the blood of the Lord

and I will drink it up, I will drink it up

give me a piece of the flesh of the Lord

and I will eat it up, I will eat it up

 

all these corners whisper

and all these walls have eyes

all your stones are weightless

and all your smiles unkind

 

but give me a cup of the blood of the Lord

and I will drink it up, I will drink it up

give me a piece of the flesh of the Lord

and I will eat it up, I will eat it up

 

give me a cup of the blood of the Lord

and I will drink it up, I will drink it up

give me a piece of the flesh of the Lord

and I will eat it up, I will eat it up

 

all these corners whisper

and all these walls have eyes

all your stones are weightless

and all your smiles unkind

 

but give me a cup of the blood of the Lord

and I will drink it up, I will drink it up

give me a piece of the flesh of the Lord

and I will eat it up, I will eat it up

 

give me a cup of the blood of the Lord

and I will drink it up, I will drink it up

give me a piece of the flesh of the Lord

and I will eat it up, I will eat it up

 

I can’t blame you for thinking

a good boat for me is one that is sinking....

 

 

 

 

 

Sister

 

I've seen, seen your face

on an old photograph

but I've never heard your voice

but I've heard we'll meet in the end
on streets of gold

and though I walk alone

I fear no evil on my road

and though I walk alone 

I fear no evil on my road

'cause I know you're watching over me

from somewhere above

these are your brother's eyes looking at you

and I'll look forever more, forever more

yeah I'll look forever more, forever more

 

and now, I'm all alone here

I'm in the dark room once again

and now, I'm all alone here

I'm in the dark room once again

but I remember that even a little spark, it beats the dark

yes I remember that even a little spark, it beats the dark

oh, just remember that even a little spark, it beats the dark

 

sister, don't you recognize 
these are your brother's eyes looking at you

Glowing in the Dark

 

love can wait
it's all you need they plead
but I want more
I want to rise up so bright
and shower the world below
in a shimmering light

the ladder is tall
each step is small
but I'm closer now than ever before
and soon, yeah very soon we'll be home

life can wait
stay unborn
climb back up to the heavens above
they will welcome us
my sweetest friend

and soon, we'll be glowing in the dark
we'll be glowing in the dark
we'll be glowing in the dark

life can wait
stay unborn
climb back up to heavens above
they will welcome us
my sweetest friend

and soon, we'll be glowing in the dark
we'll be glowing in the dark
we'll be glowing in the dark
in the dark
we'll be glowing in the dark
we'll be glowing in the dark
we'll be glowing in the dark
we’ll be glowing in the dark

 

 

 

A Ship

 

I’ve got a ship

that’s waiting in the harbour

I’ve got a life

that is waiting on a ship

I’m on the clock

and I’m always ticking forward

on board that ship

I’m never ticking bored

 

I’ve got to go, I’ve got to got to go go

I’ve got to go, I’ve got to got to go

say goodbye and whisper me a kiss

 

I’m on a ship that’s always facing midnight

I’m in a crew that is always passing through

I’m on a ship that’s always facing midnight

I’m in a crew that is always passing through

 

 

I’ve got to go, I’ve got to got to go go

I’ve got to go, I’ve got to got to go

say goodbye and whisper me a kiss

 

I’ve got to go, I’ve got to got to go go

I’ve got to go, I’ve got to got to go

say goodbye and whisper me a kiss

 

I’ve got to go, I’ve got to got to go go

I’ve got to go, I’ve got to got to go

say goodbye and whisper me a kiss

 

I’ve got to go, I’ve got to got to go go

I’ve got to go, I’ve got to got to go

say goodbye and whisper me a kiss

 

 

In Your World

I ain’t no good

I’ll eat of all your trees

and all of your fruit

we’ll this greedy little smile

will be worth your while

a shadow of your doubt

in your world I’ll always be

the fool who let you down

to some stranger, maybe

let’s see what I’m worth

I gave all my possessions

for all your confessions

yeah

at least that’s what I’m told

well, our youth is fleeting

let’s get on with this meeting

a shadow of your doubt

in your world I’ll always be

the fool who let you down

Muddy Stream

 

heaven is just a little dream

a seed in my heart

a muddy stream

feet of the ground

and yet so proud

your heart in hell

head in the clouds

 

you’re just a thief

a little scheme

a seed in my heart

a roaring stream

hell this beautiful girl

a naked spread

on the unmade bed

 

heaven is just a little dream

a seed in my heart

a muddy stream

 

 

Ode to War

 

you see honey

I really love you

you see honey

I really do

you see honey

I really need you

you see honey

I really do

well I love so much

that I will go

to war for you

to war for you

 

and when I get back

I’ll build you a house, dear

when I get back

I’ll build you a house

with a pretty little white fence

 

you see honey

I really love you

you see honey

I really do

well I love so much

that I will go

through hell for you

through hell for you

 

and when I get back

I’ll build you a house, dear

when I get back

I’ll build you a home

and when I get back

I’ll build you a house, dear

when I get back

I’ll build you a home

with a pretty little white fence, dear

 

 

 

The Highlands

 

when you tried to leave

your smile was almost kind

forever bound in sleep

forever deaf and blind

 

and though you are not here

and your body is long gone

your spirit wanders on

and from your bed a rose has grown

 

I’ll look for you in the meadows

I’ll look for you in the wind that blows

I’ll look for you in the highlands

I’ll look for you

 

and when my time has come

and I’m yearning to come home

I’ll meet you in between

all the stars I should have seen

 

I’ll look for you in the meadows

I’ll look for you in the wind that blows

I’ll look for you in the highlands

I’ll look for you

 

I’ll look for you in the meadows

I’ll look for you in the wind that blows

I’ll look for you in the highlands

I’ll look for you

 

 

 

Sleep

 

take my hand and I will lead you on

make you do something completely wrong

take you to a place you’ve never seen

show you things only seen in dreams

 

tell me are you foolish when you fall

say that love is greatest of ‘em all

and when love withers and it dies

do you sink your hands in where it lies

 

tell me am I handsome in your dreams

give in to all your little schemes

take you to places never seen

show you things never seen in dreams

 

never mind the hours when in sleep

never mind the fences when in flight

when you wither and you die

I’ll sink my hands where you lie

 

take my hand and I will lead you on

make you do something completely wrong

take you to a place you’ve never seen

show you things only seen in dreams
