A Century Ends Complete Album

Shine





I can see it in your eyes

what I know in my heart is true

that our love it has faded

like the summer run through

so we'll walk down the shoreline

one last time together

feel the wind blow our wanderin' hearts

like a feather

but who knows what's waiting

in the wings of time

dry your eyes

we gotta go where we can shine



Don't be hiding in sorrow

or clinging to the past

with your beauty so precious

and the season so fast

no matter how cold the horizon appear

or how far the first night

when I held you near

you gotta rise from these ashes

like a bird of flame

step out of the shadow

we've gotta go where we can shine



For all that we struggle

for all we pretend

it don't come down to nothing

except love in the end

and ours is a road

that is strewn with goodbyes

but as it unfolds

as it all unwinds

remember your soul is the one thing

you can't compromise

take my hand

we're gonna go where we can shine

we're gonna go where we can shine

we're gonna go where we can shine



(and look, and look)

Through the windows of midnight

moonfoam and silver





A Century Ends

cast your eyes into the distance

try to focus on it all

find a spirit of resistance

instead of pride before the fall

forge some opposition

from disparate strands

it ain't the prettiest position

as a century ends



unstable situation

faces made of wax

streams of melting glass

sheets of butchered facts

the roar of the machine

hooded hearts and jewelled hands

and anger spilling out like gasoline

as a century ends



everything I seen, everything that I heard,

ain't even the tip of the iceberg

fire down memory lane

so pass me my rose tinted glasses again



through a fog of contradiction

out to the lake of tears

see society admiring its own reflection

chase a light that shines and disappears

careful what you say 'cos reality offends

just sit back and let your soul decay

as a century ends



and its easy to get weary

as you fight to get it done

‘gainst a popular theory

that it's over 'fore it's even begun

strain the limit of compassion

tend a wound that never mends

and honesty still out of fashion

as a century ends





Debauchery

Drunken ferry boat woman

swayin' on your sea

if I turn on the gasfire

by the rain rattled window

won't you sail over to me



The hail storm tumbles

the rail line rumbles

you move in the porch with me

on an overcast day

the pale winter city

an afternoon's debauchery



Your blouse your skirt

I'll undo them so gentle

with beautiful care

I'm a lonely man

with five bottles of wine

I'd like you to share



The hail storm tumbles

the rail line rumbles

you move through the doors with me

on an overcast day

the pale winter city

an afternoon's debauchery



Orange street light

afternoon becomes night

you drink your wine from a mug

there's cats at the backdoor

the snow is two inches

you roll down your tights on the rug



The hail storm tumbles

the rail line rumbles

you lie on the floor with me

come closer my love

I'm badly in need

of an afternoon's debauchery





Let The Truth Sting

The hour is out of joint

black sun has risen

and the river of words

is flowing on through

the cages of tradition

and they're handing out emptiness

we'll take it cos it's given

free with this plastic innocence

and these standards of living



Questions lighted questions

burnin' holes into my head

hanging like shadows o'er the sun

staring out like the eyes of the dead

and sometimes my soul flickers

when the wind of change blows cold

over the mire of repetition

down the corridors of rigmarole



What I say, what I think

what I put down in ink

I'm only trying to find a way to understand

and I mean no harm

I'm just searching for calm

in the storm of mankind



Do you find it there

in the sea of faces

that drowns you everyday

or in the silence and rubble and empty spaces

where children and rottweilers play

is it buried in the praise

given so cheap

with a meaningless movement of the jaws

in the looking glass

that flatters you

or in the rattle of hollow applause



Blind circle, moon and sun body willing, mind undone

one pain ending while another begins

lies, ruin disease

into wounds like these

let the truth sting



From the hub to the limit

through the urban hollows

out into the poles of the extreme

to echo through the numbness

of these godless minutes

in the shadow of delusion's regime



And here watching the night

as it opens like a flower

and the day starts to rust

feeling time pound

like a silent hammer

on this empire of dust

and I'm thinking bout the bullet

and the TV screen, the dollar, and the clenched fist

and if we're searching for peace

how come we still believe

in hatred as the catalyst



Oh through the borderline

in front and behind

one pain ending

while another begin

lies, ruin disease

into wounds like these

let the truth sing

yeah

let the truth



And I feel it from the pit of my stomach

into the ditch of my mind

inside the chambers of my heart

as I stare half blind

at these walls of cardboard

at this space that I've rented

at your beauty that is crumbling

though you try so hard to prevent it



On and on

body willing, mind undone

one pain ending while another begins

lies, ruin, disease

into wounds like these

let the truth sting

let the truth sting

let the truth sting





Gathering Dust

I got no reason

but that I must

maybe I feel

like I’ve been gathering dust

I must leave this harbour for the sea

I'm too young to settle down and make a home

but I don't know where I'm wanting to be

I just know I have to be there alone



stole my time, all my time

stole my time for you



pale winter sun

is beatin' the ground

why'm I throwin' away

the best thing that I’ve found

my young heart's in tatters and I’m sure

that it will be a long time healing

it's so hard to see what I’m doing this for

when loneliness is all that I’m feeling



stole my time, all my time

spend my time for you



now the wind it is blowing

blowing leaves from the trees

I’ve got no use knowing

that with time it will ease

I don't know where I'm going

hope I get there soon

cos my soul is hollow

as the sorrowful moon

na na na na...



now the wind it is blowing

blowing leaves from the trees

I’ve got no use knowing

that with time it will ease

I don't know where I'm going

hope I get there soon

cos my soul is hollow

as the sorrowful moon

na na na na...



the night is raining on my weary head

taking me back



see the sun spread its wings of gold

as the dawn unfurls

hear the song that the moon sings

to the darkened world

feel the fire lighting

in the bitter cold

see the light that shines

through the windows of your soul





Wisdom

time no good

wisdom no good

patience no good

to me anymore



now night has fallen on the stair

some things you do you can never repair

seems I'm always pretending

things aren't there when they are



and the leaves are nearly off the trees

and the traffic's thick past yellow windows

and I'm lost inside the frozen headlights

thinking of you



time no good

wisdom no good

patience no good

to me anymore



and the trees are looking like bones

and the afternoon's filled with storm and rain

I'm staring out of this metal train

thinking of you



and the trees are looking like bones

and the afternoon's filled with storm and rain

and I’m tangled up in memory's thorns

no way through



time no good

wisdom no good

patience no good

to me anymore



trees like bones, yellow windows

memories, thorns, oh and you



time no good

wisdom no good

patience no good

to me anymore





Lead Me Upstairs

I care little for my body she said

I couldn't care less about my soul

and as she led me upstairs in whispers

my whole summer turned cold



I'll lead you upstairs

I'll lead you upstairs

If you've got no worries

then I've got no cares

I'll lead you upstairs



I told her people had been talking

about how dark she was inside

she said my hopes are buried in the soil

deep in the earth outside

and with one twist of the world

she brought me to her side

she asked me for the truth one time

and I all I did was lie



I'll lead you upstairs

I'll lead you upstairs

If you've got no worries

then I've got no cares

I'll lead you upstairs





Living Room

my good friends speak

like they did last year

last night's just a blur

through a head full of beer

my good friends speak

like they did last year

and last year's just a blur

through a head full of beer



where's your wisdom

put that broken bottle down

let the wind in your sails

take you out of this town so sad



I think I'm dying

and if life's just a living room

then I'm in the hall and I'm glad

and if life's just a living room

then I'm in the hall and I'm glad

Oh I'm glad, I'm glad, I'm glad



now the dawn it has broke

still the night don't clear

memories falling in the mornin' rain

I'm up too close, to see it clear

and last year's just a blur

through a head full of beer



and where's your wisdom

put that broken bottle down

let the wind in your sails

take you out of this town so sad



I think I'm dying

and if life's just a living room

then I'm in the hall and I'm glad

and if life's just a living room

then I'm in the hall and I'm glad

Oh I'm glad, I'm glad, I'm glad





Birds Without Wings

wishing that something would happen

a change in this place

'cos I'm tearing off the fancy wrapping

find an empty package



take for a while

your trumpet from your lip

loosen your hold loosen your grip

on your old ways

that have fallen out of step

in a changing time

hoist a new flag

hoist a new flag



angry sun burn down

judging us all

guilty of neglect and disrespect

and thinking small



and death by boredom

and death by greed

if we can't stop taking

more than we need



but across the fractured landscape

I see the same things

tired ideas

birds without wings



birds without wings

birds without wings



and these are just thoughts

of lack lustre times

I've no interest

in excuses you can find



like you've had a hard day

now you're too tired to care

now you're too tired to care

you've had a hard day



well across the fractured landscape

I see the same things

tired ideas broken values

many with the notion

that to share is to lose

a hollow people bound by a lack

of imagination and too much looking back

without the courage to give a new thing a chance

grounded by this ignorance



(and the cat comes)

We're just,

birds without wings

birds without wings

birds without wings





It's All Over

In the bitter violent night

the stars wear sour grins

in the vastness of the black sky

I’m cradled in your arms

unbridled by alarm

'cos I know the end is nigh



It's all over bar the shoutin'

one things for sure

its all over now

its all over now



confusion wanders in

strides the evening like a king

chaos and turmoil prevail

bedlam reigns, hope is drowned

ah but strangely we settle down

resigned to the sinking ship on which we sail



It's all over bar the shoutin'

one things for sure

its all over now

its all over now



our love's just smithereens

too much beer in my head

another night is getting late

I don't know which way to go

there's just this long white road

and I can't think straight

no I can't think straight



It's all over bar the shoutin'

one things for sure

its all over now

its all over now
