Track Name: Heaven on the Ground
it seems my friends that all of my strength here
has gathered up and left me
all my heroes are hanging thin
they have burned
and turned forward to face me

all of these ends
seem to have little will little will to know thee
they have little skin to show
what they have earned
a chorus to awaken me

thought i’d seen heaven on the ground
and it seemed so far
it seemed so far below me
and it seemed so far
it seemed so far below me

old friend
i had so many things i wish i’d told you
so many brothers are calling in
what they had learned
before you went away from me
you went away from me

thought you’d seen heaven on the ground
and it seemed so far
it seemed so far below me
and it seemed so far
it seemed so far below me
Track Name: Lushington Hall
the servants you know are in song i don’t believe it
the brothers are christian boys don’t you believe it
because all of their games are of killing and pride
and you you’re helpless

the prefects were hanging beneath ready to beat me
they must have woken again i was hoping to leave
i know i’m on show i was caving again
must i stand here feeling foolish

fear was running down my leg and i wanted to kill him
the song was far from me and i got a stare
i know god is good he did nothing for me
except sit by the door and bury me in weakness

sorry days again
i got a letter from you….
Track Name: Trouble on the Railway
there’s a line on my shoulder
i don’t mind if you’d like to stare
‘cause i heard there’s trouble on the railway
and i don’t mind if you’re walking with him

there’s a song by my window
brought along by the trouble in you
for i know that all things were hurting
and i don’t mind if you’re talking to him

because you are strong i wish you had hope
to settle down
because you belong you keep your eyes open
for something

don’t you, don’t you want to bring your curtains down
don’t you don’t you want to burn it all

because you believe all of your systems
are caving
because of your grief nothing is sacred
it’s over

these words are not mine
these words are not mine now

looking at some thing
you’re kicking it over
all assistance its all a clover
think i know you and your courts are changing
all your records need rearranging
think i know you and your head is reeling
all assistance it seemed so right
Track Name: Fresh One
shuffle on in you better watch your mouth
i’ve got a feeling i’ve lost control
man needs a suit you better work it out
he’s got a feeling he’s lost control

here comes a fresh one
there’s no need to be afraid
i found it harder to listen
harder to run, but i got away,
‘cause you were hanging round today
you were hanging round

scuttle on home you better roll with it
i’m kind of worried i’m growing old
man needs a drink you better fetch his kit
he’s kind of worried he’s growing old

what if I gave it all up
what if I changed my name again
i found it harder to listen
harder to run, but i got away
‘cause you were hanging round today
you were hanging round

so when the time comes for killing
would you throw me a line
would you sit by the walls we made
and when the time calls for giving would you toss me aside
let the glories of your song remain

they will remain
they will remain
they will remain
Track Name: Mood In The Bunker
well i’ve got weary legs now
these heavy days are taking hold
switch the firelight
don’t try to lay me down
‘cause i need to pray
‘cause i need to pray for better days now

well I’ve got better rosa
these welcome winds will bring me home
trade the lamplight
don’t try to turn me down
‘cause i need to pray
‘cause i need to pray for better days now
i have your word

‘cause you found hope in god
and you found a way to stand
but i know these words were never mine
these things are mine
Track Name: Welcome Throw
hey there crispy older man
do you see anything that worries you
there’s an abscess but no scripture in your hand
not a bloody rag to cover you
said you need a ticket
‘cause you’re not on show
but the ticket man said he’s got to go

to find my disease
and test this carnival rain
it’s shifting through me again
though it’s been a fine time
to be with you
won’t you correct this frame

and it seemed to me as I fell down today
that I swallowed
i swallowed this thing alone
and it came to me through all you heavy days
that you wanted
you wanted to be alone

hey there do you see the younger man
would you share the things that came to you
there’s a recess but no anger in his hand
not a dirty man to comfort you
said you need forgiveness
it’s a welcome throw
but the ticket man says he’s got to know

where i’ve been called
and through what changes i’ve run
through indiscretions i’ve come
though it’s been a long time since i’ve seen you
won’t you come end this one

and it seemed to me as i fell down today
that i swallowed
i swallowed this thing alone
and it came to me through all you heavy days
that you wanted
you wanted to be alone
Track Name: A Drum
because i like the place where the river’s brown
and the season’s kind to the weatherman
and the sunny days won’t break a record
and i wouldn’t want to leave this town
though i didn’t need the fever that you bring

so call inside i will make you see
that better sense is coming by
though the cast is full i’m ready to fall out
there’s resistance in the roadhouse
though distance was the reason that you bring

cast off your hand me downs
cause i’ve been told
no you’re never gonna get on your feet again
no your never gonna get on your feet again

i’ve been i’ve been
where your thoughts were holy
i’ve seen the common rain
I’ve known i’ve known
bitterness between you
but you found hope again
cast off your hand me downs
cause you’ve been told
no your never gonna get on your feet again
no your never gonna get on your feet again
Track Name: Real Prince
mr holden came by head again tonight
i was dreaming of a change of heart
dreaming of your bitter things
and the violence in my blood
thinking of your frilly things tomorrow

i know i’ve said that all of this will pass
that all your treats have been too sunny

walked down by the mainline to see what you had grown
beside your bed you found the night one
wrapped up in candle light
and the language you had known
wrapped up and fitted by the bright one

i know i’ve said that all of this will pass
that all your treats have been too sunny

but then i found a new one and i lost my load
outside your head i began
i felt a bit lonely and i wanted to go
nothing is here

i’ve got i’ve got to know
i’ve got i’ve got to know
i’ve got…

but then i found a new one and i lost my load
outside your head i began
i felt a bit lonely and i wanted to go
nothing is here

i’ve got i’ve got to know
i’ve got i’ve got to know
i’ve got…
Track Name: Devil On My Shoulder
don’t make a liar of me
don’t listen well ‘cause you were always on my knee
don’t sing all you can
all you receive is lying open on my hand

and there’s little inspiration
no room to fight
but i wanted to be there this time

‘cause i’ve got the devil on my shoulder
and there’s fire in my eyes
whose head will be heavy this time
as i’m swinging down with the misfits
and through greater glories now

all this all this is good
all you believed and all you never understood
you can know
all your pretense
and all your never letting go

and there’s little inspiration
no room to fight
but i wanted to be there this time

‘cause i’ve got the devil on my shoulder
and there’s fire in my eyes
whose head will be heavy this time
as i’m swinging down with the misfits
and through greater glories now

old man would look at my look at my
these days would look at my look at my
these days would look at my look at my whole life
and there’s something between
and its alright there’s something in between

old man when you kissed her
she didn’t seem to mind
and all of your horses tried
Track Name: Another Trial
there’s a dull pain deep in my head again
a splinter of wisdom between
the sheets the days and his holiness
it’s all on oh it’s all gone
thankfully when i took the floor
there was nothing underneath
but the system is here and it’s loaded
with the cost of empty grief
i saw it on your sleeve

oh the time
oh if you have time
time to sing and play
oh i wish it was good

the invitation comes with a bullet head
and lashings of another belief
the priest his god and his fatherland
you lost it oh you lost it well
sand dunes and pinafores
cast out on the rail
but the reason arrived and it’s costly
with your friends on the rise
I left it all behind

oh the time
if you have you have time
time to sing and play
i wish it was good

believe me when my head is in the clouds
believe me when my hands are weaker now
believe me when each song is another trial
believe me….

oh the time
if you have you have time
time to sing and play
i wish it was good
Track Name: Send My Love To Those Who Deserve It
the words i have tonight are nothing new
i’ve got a fever in my blood that keeps me warm
though the house is crowded there’s laughter here
but it’s much too close to feel at home

i had called to see what song you liked
what you’d like to hear before you go
but it’s quiet now and the laughter’s gone
and suddenly i feel alone

oh the halfside of my city sings
and the lord he took my strength from me
i guess i found the candle left her
and i thought i would come for thee

i would like to see you in the storm
and god he tore your hand from me
i’m lying open and my head is running free
i’ve got to know i’ve got to shoulder this one

the words i chose again are often used
for talk of trouble and all that came today
i’m so weighted down
by the thoughts that all you couldn’t say

when the autumn classes come to fight
i’ll hold back the tears that i have grown
‘cause this terrible thing is not moving on
and suddenly i feel alone

the halflight of my city brings
all of the colours that you left me
i guess i found another place down
and i thought i would come for free

i would like to see you in the trees
i’d call a forest to let you catch one
i’m lying open and my head is running free
i’ve got to know i’ve got to shoulder this one
i’ve got to know i’ve got to shoulder this one
