Wholly humble heart Every man must have his castle, and feel a hand caress his nape Everybody needs a good friend, to give their secrets too I too am no exception, I too need to be loved I too desire a good friend, hopefully that is you There is no time to kiss a statue, someone who purely looks the part One who transcends onto another Wholly humble heart Wholly humble heart Wholly humble heart I share a friend who is a gay boy, she tells me he is full of love Let Malcolm too be no acceptation, I wish him someone to love For it takes a while to rekindle, no matter how many you manage to fool For the first bite makes the deepest teethmarks, those wounds take a pretty long time to heel There is no time to kiss a statue, someone who purely looks the part One who transcends onto another Wholly humble heart Wholly humble heart Wholly humble heart

There comes a time There comes a time, when nerves they have enough There comes a time, when this life should be thine They scratch and tear, at every part of me I shall resign? there comes a time? Place both these hands, in pure loneliness Im not afraid, for it’s all that I have known To be and fly, toward safe insane Give me my reigns, I shall resign There comes a time, when no more leaves can fall We must walk forth, fo meet the fatal night We must be there, I shall be there Im walking now, there comes a time The tears are gone, the pain is over now Leave this here carcass t which the way he’d like My soul is mine, not torn to shreds I have my reigns, there comes a time

Look down 03:03
Look down look down Look down look down Speak loud speak loud Look down look down Speak loud speak loud And clear! At school he was about six feet seven long He was a target where kids fired their sarcasm And his ankles were so thin he could hardly walk And he sure had a beautiful face and his butt knew how to talk Yes the art guy was the closest friend he had Still he manipulated him like a kid with a badge A red white and blue badge Look down look down Speak loud speak loud Look down look down Speak loud speak loud And clear! These colours are the colours of his state Which show a tendency that lead towards his fate The red portrays the blood spilled on his gown And the blue is for the water where he drowned The white portrays the third question of conscience Oh Mr Neitzche and his philosophies can wait Actions speak louder than words Actions speak louder than words Actions speak louder than words Actions speak louder than words Look down look down Speak loud speak loud Look down look down Speak loud speak loud And clear!

Running Water Some other time Mr crime Go fill your pockets with your slime You’re in the nick till eighty nine See you round, in a decades time For my destinations a horizontal line Watch the running come down from a thundery cloud Watch the running come down from a thundery cloud But I’m glad that it’s manslaughter not murder why they put you away And I hope those rusty bars don’t block the view because it’s all the view you’ve got Watch the running come down from a thundery cloud Watch the running come down from a thundery cloud You robbed a garage with a gun The old man heart attacked and died you run It was a replica Roy cooked up in his room Well I hope the grapevine’s spinning me a yarn For guns like that shouldn’t do guys any harm Watch the running come down from a thundery cloud Watch the running come down from a thundery cloud But I’m glad that it’s manslaughter not murder why they put you away And I hope those rusty bars don’t block the view because it’s all the view you’ve got Watch the running come down from a thundery cloud Watch the running come down from a thundery cloud

Candle in the middle Should your mood be decrepit or your manner insane If your father he hit you or your dog become lame When the walls are all cold with no presence to share Place a candle in the middle sit by yourself Yes a candle in the middle is a problem shared Should your speed become slow with your grasp a caress If the problems they grow to a way beyond beware When you're desolate daunted or derry boat blue Place a candle in the middle think hollow flame Buy a bottle of pop smoke a sweet cigarette Yes a candle in the middle is a problem shared Written Autumn 1984, An alternative Country & Western poem in 3/4 timing. Apparently, according to the editor of USA music magazine No Depression, this is the first time that the phrase 'Alt Country' was termed.

about

A rare live performance in Berlin 1990
The band was very happy then and in a really good zone
We were like a family and the music was second nature
Well worth downloading for the archives
