Been Down 06:41
standing on the porch, a familiar house pretty sure i've been here before below a worn sorta knocka and a peep hole just to stop ya on a door that's all scratched up and scored i feel a niggle then a twitch as my hand makes a fist just one knock away my arm it sways an inkling that my knuckles have missed i've been down one or two times i’ll be down more i've been down one or two times i’ll be down more one or two times I bet there’ll be more i've been down one or two times i’ll be down more...times I fear more in store treat us mean through demon deeds keep us keen we've human needs... i'm at the bottom of stairs a buncha tables some chairs refrigerator open and bare and in the corner on the wall there shines a light from the hall the hall from as a kid i was scared but i’m no longer fraid of he now I’m afraid of me... feel damn worn right about now.. but still not out been worn down but i'll tell you now.. i'm not knocked down feel’n damn worn right about now.. but still not out been worn down but i'll tell you now.. i'm not knocked out..eww just need a lie down treat us mean we’'re human beings treat us fair we’re heathens just like you.... and if god don’t like it then he can bite me if the gods above don't like it then the same with the stand through the gristle and lies don’t frighten and flee...

oh i’d given up all hope at all.. I was just not sane i'm not just say’n it to make you feel small can’t bare to see you fall down on your knees cos something’s wrong with me so they may say oh that time heals all but i'm just not sure i'm just not sure just not sure they’ve ever felt this sore we all know who they cos they're far too short to fall so far... so mine the stars and traul the seas...

I caught you out sleepwalking in our park i'd seen you there before when it was dark you seemed to be so happy there amoung the trees still death shock went directly to my knees I watched your most disturbing fingers bend colourfast and creepy at their ends distinctly heard the crackling to life of a brass band your fingers summoned me like mother's hands... (stars just fall like grains of sand...) I dripped down to my knees and bent to crawl and followed as we vanished through thin walls i took you in and kept you hidden in my room piano in the corner as your tomb sip and breathe your vapour makes me ill the only thing to save me is my pill so should you find yourself sleepwalking in the dark please crack a branch or scream to stop my heart...

Medicine 04:11
i'm finding it hard to rest at night i just can't get to sleep and nightmares only scare away all my counted sheep my waking hours are drifting by days fade away and when i take the papers out can' t stand the front page avoid the front page so i chucked away the tv coz all the news is bad 37 different channels spewing out the same old crap like.. medicine... so i went to see the doctor cos they’re supposed to heal but all she said was take these tablets three times a day with meals medicine now i'm on... m.e.d.i.c.i.n.e so slip inside your capsule safe from all life's spills soon you will feel so much better when you're popping pills! oh m.e.d.i.c.i.n.e medicine... take your pills and you'll be fine

Starched white collars... If your look’n for the why the where-how and reasons this is not the time or the place or the season so swallow your pride these mouths need feed’n better join the long line in the search for meaning (you’ve given your life for no good reason they say it’s alright but they’re just teas’n!) You’ve done a hell alot of nuth’n you’ve gained a whole lot less your life needs rearrang’n your head’s a messy desk so go ahead and put off the scandal til tomorrow you’ve scuppered much more time than you could borrow in Starched white collars... So take a bow to your wage put your selflessness on display. your reasonless self-abase until the penny drops it’s ok I guess? When all the things you buy only make you iller live for your next pay with TV as filler you don’t have to be Julius Sumner Miller to know that time only runs backwards in a mirror (they say there’s no life...If there’s no meaning but there’s no time if there’s no being...) No handlebars and no brakes. You’ve given control away. The heady weight on your frame. Has stolen life’s course astray... starched white collars So if there’s no life there’s no meaning dry your fuck’n eyes cos this is not eden! Starched white collars...

I’d like to pick you pick part from part and read your d.n.a with tweezers i could make a start, sort out your wicked ways i'm fearless but could you care less? i'll shove my head in a bag if you'd only be glad i'll try it on tomorrow must i take all the blame for your pain and your sorrow? it’s true I like to stand around you'd ghasp at what i've seen... these punishments i hand them out you might call it obscene... it's my weakness, my weakness it's a racket of a battle for my sanity a lot of lost opportunities wanna bring things back round to how they used to b cos bob'n round in lonely seas is not for me the lord he's in the walls he's in the wires and the cables your lord who sees all he's in the cracks under your table your lord she stokes the fires, bends the law creates the fables our lord who rules our lives, turns us all blind and breeds hatred if you think you’ve felt about the worst that you could feel just stick around and see just how bad things could be for love of god... so... if you think god’s great put your feet at the gate it's time for your correction so why fuck’n wait if your game run him for election a simple act of fate is all it will take for resurrection it will just be so great for your faith to spread like an infection Supersize my soul...

Why? 06:19

like ghosts on the shoreline we shook you from your dreamtime you lead us to water and waited for us to leave this land that kept you sheltered from us for all this time now mortar and chrome leeds you to tow the line you wake every morning as if it's your last torturous history we live at large the children we stole from you costs us in souls we're counting their losses as we grow old so... shake the bone at us, shake the bone we've drowned you in sorrow as deep as any lake now white man's poison flows through your veins we breed upon these fatal shores thousand years yours the guilt of all our evil deeds from us it pours so keep shaking the bone at us shake the bone SHAKE!
