Discotheque
Heaven...heaven
You want heaven
Heaven in your heart

Heaven...heaven
You want heaven
Heaven in your heart

Heaven in your heart

Heaven...heaven
You want heaven
The sun, the moon, and the stars

Heaven...heaven...heaven...

Slave to the wet nurse
Never give her hers
Slave to the creature
The great teacher
Slave to the now
Slave to sound
Slave to the homes
Say baby home bottom

Slave to time
Slave to dime
Slave to chocolate
Slave to the apocalypse
Slave to talking
Slave to bow
Slave to the one
And a make at home gun

Slave with religion
Slave with recession
Slave to get out
Or go fishing
Slave to the brother
Slave to the wife
Slave to the polish
And the polacks

Slave to heather
I'll slave to honey
Slave to the things
You can't buy with money
Slave to truth
Slave to tooth
Slave to the ground
On your sweet youth

Slave to momentum
Moving on a fake talk
Eat your bitter
Like it on momento
Slave to sugar
Slave to sweetness
Slave to...
Incompleteness

Slave to the suck and
Flow of the tide
Slave to the mouth
Open wide
Slave to coke
I slave to cola
Slave to the heavy burden
Tree cola

Slave to religion
I'll slave to rome
Slave to the daughter
Returning home
Slave to friday
Slave to sunday
Slave to swallow
All of monday

Slave to the back
To welcome in the bones
Slave to the whispers
And moans
Slave to the rhythm
Losing control
Slave to wine
Wanting it all...

Do You Feel Loved
Take these hands they're good for nothing
You know these hands never worked a day
Take these boots they're going nowhere
You know these boots don't want to stray

You got my head filled with songs
You got my shoelaces undone
Take my shirt, go on take it off me
You can tear it up
If you can tie me down

Do you feel loved
Do you feel loved
Do you feel loved
Do you feel loved

Take the colours of my imagination
Take the scent hanging in the air
Take this tangle of a conversation
And turn it into your own prayer

With my fingers as you want them
With my nails under your hide
With my teeth at your back
And my tongue to tell you the sweetest lies

Do you feel loved
Do you feel loved
Do you feel loved
And it looks like the sun
But it feels like the rain

Love's a bully pushing and shoving
In the belly of a woman
Heavy rhythm taking over
To stick together
A man and a woman
Stick together
Man and woman
Stick together...

And I feel loved
Do you feel loved
Do you feel loved
And it looks like the sun
But it feels like the rain
And there's heat in the sun
To see us through the rain

Do you feel loved
Do you feel loved
Do you feel...
Do you feel...back to top
Mofo
Looking for to save my save my soul
Looking in the places where no flowers grow
Looking for to fill that God shaped hole
Mother...mother sucking rock and roll (mother...)

Holy dunc, spacejunk coming in for the splash
(been around the back...been around the front)
White dopes on punk staring into the flash
(been around the back...been around the front)
Looking for the baby jesus under the trash
(been around the back...been around the front)

Mother...mother sucking rock and roll (mother...)
Mother [scat singing] rock and roll (mother...)

Mother...mother...mother...
Mother...mother...mother...

Mother...am I still your son
You know I've waited for so long to hear you say so
Mother...you left and made me someone
Now I'm still a child, no one tells me no

Looking for a sound that's going to drown out the world
(been around the back...been around the front)
Looking for the father of my two little girls
(been around the back...been around the front)
Got the swing got the sway got my straw in lemonade
(been around the back...been around the front)
Still looking for the face I had before the world was made
(been around the back...been around the front)

Mother...mother sucking rock and roll (mother...)
Bubble popping sugar dropping rock and roll (mother...)
Mother...mother suck, yeah, fuck yeah (mother...)

Mother...mother...mother...
Mother...mother...mother...

Soothe me mother
Move me father
Fool me brother
Woo me sister
Soothe me mother
Rule me father
Show me mother
Show me mother
Show me mother
Show me mother
Show me mother

If God Will Send His Angels
Nobody else here baby
No one here to blame
No one to point the finger
It's just you and me and the rain

Nobody made you do it
No one put words in your mouth
Nobody here taking orders
When love took a train heading south

It's the blind leading the blond
It's the stuff, it's the stuff of country songs

Hey if God will send his angels
And if God will send a sign
And if God will send his angels
Would everything be alright

God has got his phone off the hook, babe
Would he even pick up if he could
It's been a while since we saw that child
Hanging 'round this neighbourhood
You see his mother dealing in a doorway
See father christmas with a begging bowl
Jesus sister's eyes are a blister
The high street never looked so low

It's the blind leading the blond
It's the cops collecting for the cons
So where is the hope and where is the faith
And the love...what's that you say to me
Does love...light up your christmas tree
The next minute you're blowing a fuse
And the cartoon network turns into the news

If God will send his angels
And if God will send a sign
And if God will send his angels
Where do we go
Where do we go

Jesus never let me down
You know jesus used to show me the score
Then they put jesus in show business
Now it's hard to get in the door

It's the stuff, it's the stuff of country songs
But I guess it was something to go on

If God will send his angels
I sure could use them here right now
Well if God would send his angels

I don't want to lie
(where do we go)
I don't want to have a feel for the song
And I want to love, and i...
(where do we go)
And I want to feel aloneback to top
Staring At The Sun
Summer stretching on the grass
Summer dresses pass
In the shade of a willow tree
Creeps a crawling over me

Over me and over you
Stuck together with god's glue
It's going to get stickier too
It's been a long hot summer
Let's get under cover
Don't try too hard to think
Don't think at all

I'm not the only one
Staring at the sun
Afraid of what you'd find
If you took a look inside

I'm not just deaf and dumb
Staring at the sun
Not the only one
Who's happy to go blind

There's an insect in your ear
If you scratch it won't disappear
It's going to itch and burn and sting
You want to see what the scratching brings

Waves that leave me out of reach
Breaking on your back like a beach
Will we ever live in peace
'cause those that can't do
Often have to
And those that can't do
Often have to preach

Intransigence is all around
Military still in town
Armour plated suits and ties
Daddy just won't say goodbye

Referee won't blow the whistle
God is good but will he listen
I'm nearly great
But there's something missing
I left it in the duty free
But you never really belonged to me

You're not the only one
Staring at the sun
Afraid of what you'd find
If you stepped back inside

I'm not sucking on my thumb
I'm staring at the sun
Not the only one
Who's happy to go blind

You're not the only one
Staring at the sun
Afraid of what you'd find
If you stepped back inside

I'm not sucking on my thumb
I'm staring at the sun
Not the only one
Who's happy to go blind

Sun... I'm not the only one
Who's happy to go blind...back to top
Last Night On Earth
She feels the ground is giving way
But she thinks we're better off that way
The more you take the less you feel
The less you know the more you believe
The more you have the more it takes today

You got to give it away
(you got to give it away)
You got to give it away
(you got to give it away)
You got to give it away
(you got to give it away)

She knows just what she's worth
She's living like it's the last night on earth
The last night on earth

She's not waiting on a saviour to come
She's at the bus-stop with news of the world and the sun
Sun, here it comes
She's not waiting for anyone

You got to give it away
(you got to give it away)
You got to give it away
(you got to give it away)
You got to give it away
(you got to give it away)

She don't care what it's worth
But she's living like it's the last night on earth
The last night on earth



Slipping away
(would you believe in something
Would you believe in someone)

Slip slide
She lets me
Slipping away

(would you believe in something
Would you believe in someone)

The world turns
And we get dizzy
Slipping away

(would you believe in something
Would you believe in someone)


She's living, living next week now
You know she's going to pay it back somehow
She hasn't been to bed in a week
She'll be dead soon then she'll sleep

You got to give it away
(you got to give it away)
You got to give it away
(you got to give it away)
You got to give it away
(you got to give it away)

She already knows it hurts
She's living like it's the last night on earth
The last night on earth
Last night on earth
Last night...back to top
Gone
You get to feel so guilty
Got so much for so little
Then you find that feeling
Just won't go away

You're holding on to every little thing so tightly
'til there's nothing left for you anyway

Goodbye...
You can keep this suit of lights
I'll be up with the sun
I'm not coming down
I'm not coming down
I'm not coming down

You wanted to get somewhere so badly
You had to lose yourself along the way
You change your name, well that's okay, it's necessary
And what you leave behind you don't miss anyway

Goodbye...
You can keep this suit of lights
I'll be up with the sun
I'm not coming down
I'm not coming down
I'm not coming down

'cause I'm already gone
Felt that way all along
Closer to you every day
I didn't want it that much anyway

You're taking steps that make you feel dizzy
Then you learn to like the way it feels
You hurt yourself you hurt your lover
Then you discover
What you thought was freedom is just greed

Goodbye...
And it's emotional
Good night...
I'll be up with the sun
You're still holding on
I'm not coming down
I'm not coming down
I'm not coming down

Miami
Weather 'round here chopping and changing
Surgery in the air
Print shirts and southern accents
Cigars and big hair
We got the wheels, petrol is cheap
We only went there for a week
Got the sun got the sand
Got the batteries in the handycam...

Her eyes all swimming pool blue
Dumb bells on a diving board
Baby's always attracted to the things she's afraid of
Big girl with the sweet tooth
Watches the skinny girl in the photo shoot
Freshmen squeaky clean
She tastes of chlorine
Miami, my mammy

Love the movies...love to walk those movie sets
Get to shoot someone in the foot
Get to smoke some cigarettes
No big deal we know the score
Just back from the video store
Got the car and the car chase
What's he got inside the case
I want a close up of that face
Here comes the car chase

Miami, my mammy
Miami

I bought two new suits...miami
Pink and blue...miami
I took a picture of you...my mammy
Getting hot in a photo booth...miami
I said you looked like a madonna
You said...maybe...
Said I want to have your baby...baby
We could make something beautiful
Something that wouldn't be a problem
We could make something beautiful
Something that wouldn't be a problem
At least not in...miami

You know some places are like your auntie
But there's no place like
Miami, my mammy

If You Wear That Velvet Dress
Tonight the moon is playing tricks again
I'm feeling sea sick again
The whole world could just dissolve
Into a glass of water

I've been good 'cause I know you don't want me to
Do you really want me to be blue as you
It's her daylight that gets me through

We've been here before
Last time you scratched at my door
The moon was naked and cold
I was like a two year old
Who just wanted more

If you wear that velvet dress
If you wear that velvet dress

Tonight the moon has drawn it's curtains
It's a private show
No one else going to know
I'm wanting

Sunlight, sunlight fills my room
It's sharp and it's clear
But nothing at all like the moon

It's okay, the struggle for things not to say
I never listened to you anyway
And I got my own hands to pray

But if you wear that velvet dress
But if you wear that velvet dress

Tonight the moon is a mirrorball
Light flickers from across the hall
Who'll catch the star when it falls

If you wear that velvet dressback to top
Please
So you never knew love
Until you'd crossed the line of grace
And you never felt wanted
'til you had someone slap your face
And you never felt alive
Until you'd almost wasted away

You had to win
You couldn't just pass
The smartest ass
At the top of the class
Your flying colors
Your family tree
And all your lessons in history

Please...please...please...
Get up off your knees, now
Please...please...please...
Leave it out...

So you never knew
How low you'd stoop to make that call
And you never knew
What was on the ground until they made you crawl
So you never knew
That the heaven you keep, you stole

Your catholic blues
Your convent shoes
Your stick-on tattoos
Now they're making the news
Your holy war
Your northern star
Your sermon on the mount
From the boot of your car

Please...please...please...
Get up off your knees, now
Please...please...please...
Leave it out

'cause love is big
And love is tough
But love is not
What you're thinking of

September
Streets capsizing
Spilling over
And down the drain
Shards of glass
Splinters like rain
But you could only feel
Your own pain

October
Talk getting nowhere
November
December
Remember
Are we just starting again

Please...please...please...
Get up off your knees, now
Please...

'cause love is big
Is bigger than us
But love is not
What you're thinking of

It's what lovers deal
It's what lovers steal
You know I've found it hard to receive

'cause you my love
I could never believeback to top
Wake Up Dead Man
Jesus, jesus help me
I'm alone in this world
And a fucked up world it is too
Tell me, tell me the story
The one about eternity
And the way it's all gonna be

Wake up, wake up dead man
Wake up, wake up dead man

Jesus, I'm waiting here boss
I know you're looking out for us
But maybe your hands aren't free
Your father, he made the world in seven
He's in charge of heaven
Will you put in a word for me

Wake up, wake up dead man
Wake up, wake up dead man

Listen to your words they'll tell you what to do
Listen over the rhythm that's confusing you
Listen to the reed in the saxophone
Listen over the hum of the radio
Listen over sounds of blades in rotation
Listen through the traffic and circulation
Listen as hope and peace try to rhyme
Listen over marching bands playing out their time

Wake up, wake up dead man
Wake up, wake up dead man

Jesus, were you just around the corner
Did you think to try and warn her
Or are you working on something new
If there's an order in all of this disorder
Is it like a tape recorder
Can we rewind it just once more

Wake up, wake up dead man
Wake up, wake up dead man
Wake up, wake up dead manback to top
