Track Name: Able Hands
i want to say i fear the wind
you saw hope
the feeling’s real
the feeling’s old
past your skin
burnt out
wasted
on your way
sinking
slowly
call my name

though I knew you were to fall
take this will I see you burning bright
‘cause you and me
we were able to
able to laugh
spring came
grew wings again and left no hope

i won’t be alone
you won’t be alone
i will share your wishes and voice
with other able hands

fallen frames
yyour face is gone
i stay in
stifled home
it’s been erased
this your load
forced out
empty
cause to run
sinking
only float for fun
and though I knew you’d fight them all
take this will I see you burning bright
‘cause you and me

we were able to
able to laugh
spring came
grew wings again and left no hope

i won’t be the same
i won’t be the same
i will share your laughter and your joy
with other able hands
Track Name: Fitzroy Strongman
feeling slim feeling old
cause these words i haven’t sold
set it out
say it clean and these bitter bitter leaves
are blowing in
bringing down this pretty useless town
it’s a useless town

don’t want to try
don’t want to listen now
i’d like to change you
i’d like to change you but lift you higher

cause there’s no
higher ground
there’s too much trouble here
i wish these days would leave this town
and I have brittle bones
i wear my shallow grin
and spread my wickedness around

quarter leg a quart of mace
is a measure of my taste
a taste of sin
a taste of ill and these bitter bitter pills
are flowing in
this is all
these relations on my wall
they’re on my floor

don’t want to turn
don’t want to turn on you
i’d like to break him
i’d like to break him but treat his bride

but there’s no
higher ground
there’s too much trouble here
i wish these days would leave this town
and i have brittle bones
i wear my shallow grin
and spread my wickedness around
Track Name: 40 Days
sisters moving down
closing up the alleyways
sing songs and saying i am wholesale
sisters in the boardroom
checking out the chimney sweep
laying carpet down and giving up hope

it’s sort of lonely
it’s what remains
saddle up and bring your sorry stains
licking up the seaside
this couch was wrong and I’ve been
holding on

forty days now
what’s in store
sisters on your pillow
Track Name: Done With Everything
sister knows
time to bring the widows down again
oh what a weekend
i was feeling a little strange
a little dim
i walked out i walked out
now i’m done with everything
now i’m done with everything

second row
i guess i got it wrong again
no-one here
seems to notice the empty light
the sorry din
i shot through i shot through
now i’m done with everything
now i’m done with everything

oh let them follow
time to put the hymn book down again
oh this hollow
cause now i’m naked and too aware
i stretched out i stretched out
now i’m done with everything
now i’m done with everything
now i’m done with everything
Track Name: What A Lovely War
fetch your hat and burn it all
christmas neighbor won’t bite
it’s morning, it’s morning rain
lift the scent of these shells again

skirt in and fill this race
empty stockings are laid and
spring voices and all this hair
will be sinking and sin was there

and when will you run
and have your day
and have your day
and when will you run
and have your day
and have your day
the season the season is gone again is gone again

coarse eyes and filthy robes
fortune making me cold and
low senses with rusty frames
will be sinking and sun remains

sore eyes and long to reign
i’ve a locket on sale
license falls and you’ll be fine
but the sorrow just trails behind

and when will you run
and have your day
and have your day
and when will you run
and have your day
and have your day
the season, the season is gone again, it’s gone again
Track Name: Song In Uniform
wanted to leave
wanted to leave the city
jesus was standiing far behind
never never felt nothing, nothing but out of place
the walls crying christmas in the line

wanted to believe
wanted to believe the country
‘cause there i’m told that yes those people would
wanted to serve but only to serve myself
‘cause then i’m told that christmas wasn’t good

and i see that you were arranging
now that your family’s in the clear
should i let her be
should i send a rose
now the liquors in his hands again

christmas is over
now the blankets go home
i was angry, i was angry
christmas was choking and i need to be home
i was loaded, i was loaded
Track Name: Excuse Boots
yesterday’s gone it’s turned to white
now i can’t be sure
i will wait here till the hammer comes around
they stole your door
you left your window clear for rain
i will sink back fall over again

they could never give in
he knows now he knows he can win
i will call out
sickness comes again

i never called in sick now
i never felt engaged
i never knew that the moon was ready to take me in
so bring your highway, high way today

tuesday’s changed It’s turned to black
now I’m empty here
i will roll in
voices over you
they cursed your name
they turned you over and round again
i will sink back want to run him through

they could never give in
he knows now he knows he can win
i will call out
sickness comes again

i never called in sick now
i never felt engaged
i never knew that the moon was ready to take me in
so bring your highs today
bring your sorrows today
bring your night
i hope it comes around
Track Name: Meals
the highlight was wrong
the highlight was dead and gone
too many crowns makes his head feel low
too many soldiers on his back
too many needles makes veins explode
and i know he’s not coming back

we could be strong and misbehave
i might be wiser than you
coming when the race was run
these hands of mine are torn
and he knows this now
he knows this now

we could be strong
we could be brave
we could make everything seem ok
find this night
find a light
find a place to colour in the sky
the sun is raining again
and I won’t waste these hands of mine
who knows when this time
who knows when this time

the headlights were down
the headlights were down and round me
too many coffees pulls his head to the wall
too many stories under me
too many voices now i’ll silence them all
and you’ll be there taping up my knee

we could be strong
we could be brave
we could make everything seem ok
find this night
find a light
find a place to colour in the sky
the sun is raining again
and I won’t waste these hands of mine
who knows when this time
who knows when this time
we could be strong
Track Name: God In The Corner Store
man needs colour to change his name
gentle breeze collided softly in his ear
breath of god all over
in this time we went away
tenderness come hold in the storm

man likes to take to feel his chains
man likes to take time to view his pain
and in between fully felt the lie low
for between never saw the sky move

fend off this nighttime there’s a storm we have to clear
lay down your empty cup and wait
choose a day that won’t compete and a day will disappear
choose a cup that won’t be left in line

fortune may complain
fortune may complain

my little lady my god in the corner store
lay down make a bed where the child from the woman can sleep
my little campsong breathes fire on the welcome sign
take this harmony home

fortune may complain
fortune may complain
Track Name: Wedding Day
there’s blood on the toilet seat and heaven is coming down to hold me
there’s spit on the bathroom floor and i guess i should remove these clothes now
and try to sleep

cause you got a way
the way it turned on your wedding day
cause I was coming down
with fear in my heart i was coming down
so don’t mind me
don’t mind anyone
the plans you’ve made well they’ve turned cold
cause what you need is in my hair tonight
and i know yes i won’t let it

fall down
beneath you
something is wrong
i got a fresh one I got a new one
i’d like to wrap it round your head
i got a lowdown I gt a romance
i’d like to bust your weary legs
cause i noticed
and i won’t lose sight of this one

i know it’s late but i can still hear them fucking in the other room
my skin is pale and cold and all of my head is now on sale to you
you yes lonely sleep

cause you got a way
the way it turned on your wedding day

cause i was laying in
oh lord you know i was laying in
so don’t mind me
don’t mind anyone
the plans you’ve made well they’ve turned cold
cause what you need is in my hair tonight
and i know yes i won’t let it

fall down
beneath you
something is wrong
i got a fresh one i got a new one
i’d like to wrap it round your head
i got a lowdown i got a romance
i’d like to bust your weary legs
cause i noticed
and i won’t lose sight of this one

for the last one
won’t you notice me
on your wedding day
don’t you want to give me anything
Track Name: Send/Phone
i know your voice is thin
know your head is low
shaking underneath
it’s not your day
fear is closing
fear is brighter now
holding others arms
he’s gone his way
whatever changes
now may you find your door
we were closing we were seated down
restless little hands
we were caving in
we were falling round
take his little head in mine
fear is gone
let the ground swallow him whole
take these little tears now
overcome
for son you could never have sold

caught in between
and his head is by the door
saw oregano and fear is right
curled up in between
by these photos on the floor
tearing down the seem and burning on
so many changes
now may they find their door
we were gathered round
see our faces fall
into him again
calling from within
Track Name: Messiah
the messiah’s come and gone
he’s left half a dozen flags to stake his claim
maybe i should jump start, singing the national anthem

lie belly up in the sun
blistering out like a bottle of beer
i need a slow dive into the country to calm my nerves

i’m only dancing on the roof tops
thinking about what i’ve got to do
maybe i’ll get drunk and change the world some other day

this is a great great divide
this is a great great divide
this is a great great divide
and there was nothing in between

the musicians have left the building
Oh god i’ll never meet them now
i wanted them to sign my chest and wish me a happy christmas

oh well there’s next time
tonight i’m gonna cut off my hand
let the blood it curls down put a smile on the face of my friend

i’m only dancing on the roof tops
thinking about what i’ve got to do
maybe i’ll get drunk and change the world some other day

this is a great great divide
this is a great great divide
this is a great great divide
and there was nothing in between
and there was nothing in between
