Poison in the Well

Tell me what's gone wrong
I tilt my head there, under the faucet
But when I turn it on
Dry as paper
Call the neighbors
Who's to blame for what's going on?
In the dark without a clue
I'm just the same as you
 
Oh, they tell us there's poison in the well
That someone's been a bit untidy
And there's been a small spill
Not a lot, no, just a drop
But there you are mistaken, you know you are
 
I wonder just how long
They knew our well was poisoned
But they let us just drink on
 
Oh, they tell us there's poison in the well
That someone's been a bit untidy
That there's been a small spill
And all that it amounts to is a tear in a salted sea
That someone's been a bit untidy
They'll have it cleaned up in a week
 
But the week is over
Now it's growing into years since I was told that
I should be calm
There's nothing to fear here
But I drank that water for years
My wife and my children!
 
So tell me, where to now
If your fight for a bearable life can be fought
And lost in your backyard?
 
Oh, don't tell us there's poison in the well
That someone's been a bit untidy
That there's been a small spill
And all that it amounts to is a tear in a salted sea
That someone's been a bit untidy
They'll have it cleaned up in a week

There She Goes my Beautiful World

The wintergreen, the juniper
The cornflower and the chicory
All the words you said to me
Still vibrating in the air
The elm, the ash and the linden tree
The dark and deep, enchanted sea
The trembling moon and the stars unfurled
There she goes, my beautiful world
 
There she goes, my beautiful world
There she goes, my beautiful world
There she goes, my beautiful world
There she goes again
 
John Wilmot penned his poetry
Riddled with the pox
Nabokov wrote on index cards
At a lectern, in his socks
St. John of the Cross did his best stuff
Imprisoned in a box
And Johnny Thunders was half alive
When he wrote Chinese Rocks
 
Well, me, I'm lying here, with nothing in my ears
Me, I'm lying here, with nothing in my ears
Me, I'm lying here, for what seems years
I'm just lying on my bed with nothing in my head
 
Send that stuff on down to me
Send that stuff on down to me
Send that stuff on down to me
Send that stuff on down to me
 
There she goes, my beautiful world
There she goes, my beautiful world
There she goes, my beautiful world
There she goes again
 
Karl Marx squeezed his carbuncles
While writing Das Kapital
And Gauguin, he buggered off, man
And went all tropical
While Philip Larkin stuck it out
In a library in Hull
And Dylan Thomas died drunk in
St. Vincent's hospital
 
I will kneel at your feet
I will lie at your door
I will rock you to sleep
I will roll on the floor
And I'll ask for nothing
Nothing in this life
I'll ask for nothing
Give me everlasting life
 
I just want to move the world
I just want to move the world
I just want to move the world
I just want to move
 
There she goes, my beautiful world
There she goes, my beautiful world
There she goes, my beautiful world
There she goes again
 
So if you got a trumpet, get on your feet
Brother, and blow it
If you've got a field, that don't yield
Well get up and hoe it
I look at you and you look at me and
Deep in our hearts know it
That you weren't much of a muse
But then I weren't much of a poet
 
I will be your slave, I will peel you grapes
Up on your pedestal with your ivory and apes
With your book of ideas with your alchemy
O come on send that stuff on down to me
 
Send that stuff on down to me
Send that stuff on down to me
Send that stuff on down to me
Send that stuff on down to me
Send it all around the world
Cause here she comes, my beautiful girl
 
There she goes, my beautiful world
There she goes, my beautiful world
There she goes, my beautiful world
There she goes again
 

Ghosts Of Cable Street

England, 1936.
The grip of the Sabbath day
In London town the only sound
Is a whisper in an alleyway
Men put on their gloves and boots
Have a smoke before they go
From the west there is a warning of
A wind about to blow

Like Caesar marching to the East
Marches Mosley with his men
Dressed in their clothes of deepest black
Like a gathering hurricane
This is the British Union
With its flag of black and red
A flag that casts a shadow in
Berlin and in Madrid

[chorus:]
Listen to the sound of marching feet
And the voices of the ghosts of Cable Street
Fists and stones and batons and the gun
With courage we shall beat those blackshirts down

So mile by mile they come on down
To a place called Cable Street
And other men are waiting there
Preparations are complete
Mosley comes so close
They now can see his outstretched arm
A hand raised up that way
Never took the future in its palm

[chorus]

The battle broke as the fists and the batons fell
Through the barricades came the sound of the wounded yells
Jack Spot burst through with a chair leg made of lead
Brought down a crashing blow on Mosley's head

And so we learn from history generations have to fight
And those who crave for mastery
Must be faced down on sight
And if that means by words, by fists
By stones or by the gun
Remember those who stood up for
Their daughters and their sons

[chorus](2x)

What I Wouldn't Give

It's hard enough to find the words to say
It's hard to find a way to be okay
A mother's love can never be replaced
But what I wouldn't give for one more day
 
And I
I would give my eyes if I could see you one last time
And I
I would give my arms if I could hold you into mine
And I
I would give my lungs if I could feel your air inside
Oh, and I
I would take your place so you could stay the rest of mine
There's nothing I wouldn't give for time
 
I think about your smile ear to ear
I'll miss you more with every single year
But you made us promise no more tears
Still what I wouldn't give to have you here
 
Oh, and I
I would give my voice if I could hear you one last time
And I
I would give my all to feel your heartbeat next to mine
And I
I would give my soul if I could ever change God's mind
Oh, and I
I would take your place so you could stay the rest of mine
There's nothing I wouldn't give for time
 
And I
Know you're here with me, forever standing by my side
And I
I can feel your love every time I close my eyes
And I
Know there's no more pain and you won't ever have to fight
I know you're here watching over me
'Cause you're the angel in my life
And I know that I will see you in time
I know that I will see you in time
 

Electric Pornography

So sweet.. so deadly..
Electric Pornography...

It’s dark and sweating hot,
It’s easy to give what you’ve got,

This den is a sea of skin,
Turned on for the pleasures of sin,

Oh my God, it’s filthy and dirty,
Bass vibrates and fucks it into me,
One more dance and I’m gonna cum,
Baby’s getting wet and coming undone,

(Electric..)
I see the devil in your eyes,
(Pornography..)
I hear desire in your lies,
Let yourself go,
It’s easy,
Purse your lips and blow,
Be sleazy,

Get down and get undressed,
Your sexuality unrepressed,

Sweat drips down your heaving chest,
We dance to the slap of flesh on flesh,

...it’s filthy and dirty,
...fuck it into me,
...I’m gonna cum!
Baby's getting wet and coming undone,

Let's break it down!

Corruption,
Sin,
Filth,
Lets get undressed,

Yeah..
(Electric)
I see the devil in your eyes,
(Pornography..)
I hear desire in your lies,
Let yourself go,
It’s easy,
Purse your lips and blow,
Be sleazy,

(2x)
Take it away,
Take it away,

(2x)
This is my fantasy,
Electric Pornography,

(I’ll take the world and spin it for you,
Just let your world in my dimension)
