I Stay Clear I stay clear of demons in the mind I stay dear to the lemons in your heart All that gold that is waiting in the mines I guess we’ll try Some other time I stay clear of questions unanswered I stay dear to answers unremembered Close to Newport, far from the Nile I guess we can Try some other time In the plot when did you decide To move away? When I longed to tell you this All your love that you decided to waste away When I longed to tell you this I stay clear of players in the game I stay dear to doing all the same Only marbled by columns of time Only marbled by columns of time Only marbled by columns of time

Raes When all the ballons on your grave Have gone flat and empty When all the flowers on your stone Are gone dead and sorry Say, what time does the rain dry When rays don’t come out of the sunshine? When all the strings on your shoes Have gone all thin and dirty When all the skin on your bones Has gone dry and flappy Say, what time does the rain dry When rays don’t come out of the sunshine? When all the children that you raised Have gone old and tipsy When all the boys that you’ve known Forgot about you baby Now there’s a place where face to face You reap all that you saw In the maze of man and grace You have to leave all that you grow Say, what time does the rain dry When rays don’t come out of the sunshine?

In The Midnight Sun Waking up every morning yet I can’t describe The feeling that is running when the sleeper dies Understated conversations with the simplest of illusions You take all the shame, a train of thought As light as the day shining in the midnight sun She knew all the crimes of every gun She knew all the lines of all of your songs Right at this moment I couldn’t say If the clouds are disappearing or shining In the midnight sun
4.
Deepest Waters Can’t believe it was a cheap ride Or is it just a masquerade Talking deep into the sunrise Far away from barricades Coming around and coming about Looking around all safe and sound Sailing in deepest waters A zebra with no stripes, a ship with no mast I couldn’t look at it any other way Suzy says that I’m hungry For more love that I can show Sister say are you sorry For all the things that you adore Coming around and coming about Looking around all safe and sound Sailing in deepest waters A zebra with no stripes, a ship with no mast I couldn’t look at it any other way
5.
Feline Eye Feline eye, holy ghost Mystic child, take it slow Lack of time, lack of stores Lack of mind, a lack of soul My time of dying came a week early I could not resist the pain and the glory Hey sister, are you ready? They tell me “you’re the kind of guy who lost all the space, gained all the time” They curse at your name, spit on your grave Then tell their friends to do all the same Questions asked, mellow tone Plug the jack into your soul

As The Suntanned Share A Toast And with the grace of a drape over her shoulder Falling like water on some unnamed mountain And with the grace of a bird on a branch While all hell breaks over the bench And with the honours given to weary students Who flattened their backs for some knowledge and orders And with the patterns of the waves over the sea Moving in rhythm, moving in melodies And with the patience of a long-time guard Who watched the door for years but without a doubt One day you’ll show up, walking the endless aisles Enter the room where the lightbulbs have all died I could watch you talk but couldn’t hear your voice Now there’s no option but not to have a choice And with the grace of the tired whale That reaches the surface for a last inhale And with the experience of a turtle on a coast Waiting to die as the suntanned share a toast As the suntanned share a toast

Improbable Lover Of all the ex-lovers You’ve got to take the cup I tried every means to make you smile or blush No reason to be angry Or shout at the sun Improbable lover, can you read a palm? Is there anything good coming undone? How sad can it be, you’re still on the run But I’m still a stranger To your believers Why cry baby? Why cry baby? Of all the ex-lovers You’ve got to take the cup I tried every means to make you smile or blush No reason to be angry Or shout at the sun But I’m still a stranger To your believers I’m still a stranger to your believers I’m still a stranger to your believers

Tough Times In Real Towns Quiet! Can the leaves grow? I said silence! Now baby don’t go The bass low and the treble high The bass low and the treble high It’s tough times in real towns I might never leave you For there’s no space in my mind To ever undo you The bass low and the treble high The bass low and the treble high

Righteous Endeavours I don’t need a woman to be my side For in a second I will get over Don’t need two lefts to make a single right For in a minute I will go in circles Is it now or is it never In this righteous endeavour Perhaps I need a little time to know I don’t need a woman to be my side For in a second I will get over her Don’t need two lefts to make a single right For in a minute I will go in circles I don’t need no music to get me around For in a second it will be over
