Track Name: The Likes Of You Again
Here's to you, I sing for my daddy-o
As I lay him down to sleep
It's been so long, since I lost my daddy-o
Hope he's watchin' over me

Wednesday night is mornin' now
As I'm walkin' in the rain
The birds are screaming in my ear
Drivin' me insane

Half the clouds are empty
So the sun burst through the sky
The puddles show reflection
Of a face about to die

Just around the corner,
I was goin' round the bend
I ran into a staggerin' fool
Who said he knew my name

He poured himself a whiskey
And his face began to glow
Two men without an answer
Like a dog without a bone

Bringin' in the new year
As the bells began to ring
Fats is in the corner, she's just about to sing
Time to get another, before the final shout
You should have heard them roarin'
When they dragged the bugger out
And we'll never see the likes of you again

Jimbo came from slummin' town
A cold and dreary place
To summerland he found himself
The sun shun on his face

Met a girl called Minnie Pearl
Swore she'd always be his girl
Happy ever after, till the tide ran out again

Pour me all your sorrows
And I'll drink till you are dry
I'll love you in the mornin'
Christ, I'll love ya till you die

I'll never leave so never grieve
I'll be back before ya know
But Jimbo fell into a well
And never rambled home

Carried all his troubles in an unforgivin' bag
Back and forth through painted brick

The colours all seemed bland
I've traveled all these years, he said
To only get this far, so he crossed the street
Found a seat, his home is now a bar

And we'll never see the likes of you again
No we'll never see the likes of you again

There must be more to life, than this poxie life
All the agro, all the pain

So he disappeared into his final beer
But the glass was empty, once again, again, again

Woke up in an awful state
Dreamt I was at Peter's Gate
Beggin' for his mercy
And the crimes that were at hand

He told me he was much amused
To see this life I had abused
Best be on your way, but have a swig before you go

So I'm bringing in the New Year
As the bells began to ring
Fat's in the corner, she's just about to sing
Time to get another, before the final shout
You should have heard them roarin'
When they dragged the bugger out

And we'll never see the likes of you again
No we'll never see the likes of you again
No we'll never see the likes of you a
Track Name: Swagger
Don't know where I'm goin',
Don't know where I'm goin', yeah

Don't know where I'm goin',
Don't know where I'm goin', yeah
Track Name: Requiem For A Dying Song
THERE’S A GOVERNMENT WHIP
CRACKED ACROSS YOUR BACK
WHERE THE ORDER OF THE DAY
IS DON’T LISTEN ATTACK
SEE THE BLOOD RUN DOWN
IN YOUR BUSHWHACKED TOWN
REVOLUTION IS THE GIMMICK
OF A JOKERLESS CLOWN
ANOTHER VOLLEY’S JUST THE AMMO
FOR THE TAXMAN’S GUN

TALK, DON’T TALK IF YOU’VE NOTHIN’ TO SAY
WALK, DON’T WALK IF YOUR FEET DON’T KNOW THE WAY

Chorus
IN REQUIEM FOR A DYING SONG
HEAR THE SHIMMY AND THE SHAKE
FROM A FUTILE WAR
WITH THE SUN THAT LIGHTS THE DAY
BRINGS THE DARKNESS AND THE PRIZE
OF ANOTHER GREAT SHAME
BUT WITH YOU MY LOVE, WITH YOU MY LOVE
WITH YOU I WILL RETURN
IN REQUIEM FOR A DYING SONG

GRAB THE BARREL BY THE FACE
SHOOT THE ORDER, RELEASE
SHOVE THE BULLET IN YOUR POCKET
TURN AWAY AND RETREAT
SEE THE TERROR IN THE EYE
OF A BLOODSHOT CHILD
WITH ONLY RUBBLE IN HIS BELLY
AND THE PROMISE OF LIES
OPERATION LIBERATION, TELL ME YOU CAN DECIDE

TALK, DON’T TALK IF YOU’VE NOTHIN’ TO SAY
WALK, DON’T WALK IF YOUR FEET DON’T KNOW THE WAY

Chorus

AGONY FROM EVERY CORNER
ON EVERY STREET
IGNITE THEIR LOSS OF SELF
WITH THEIR BITTERNESS… EXPLODE… EXPLODE
Track Name: Man With No Country
PICTURE AN ENDING BEFORE IT’S BEGUN
THE ART OF FORGIVENESS IS NOT WHAT WE’RE TAUGHT
REEK OF THE HAVOC ALREADY MADE
THE CRADLE WAS DAMAGED, DUG BY THE GRAVE
WHERE YOU LIE IN THE SIN, FOR MORTAL’S THE SOUL
FORGIVE ME THIS FATHER BEFORE I GO COLD
FROM BURDEN OF GRIEF AND ALL I REGRET
SPARE ME THE CONSCIENCE BEFORE I FORGET

Chorus
FOR ONCE IN THIS LIFE
I BETTER DO SOMETHING RIGHT
BUT I’M CAUGHT IN A WORLD THAT WON’T STOP BURNIN’
THAT WON’T STOP BURNIN’

JUMP THROUGH THE ARMS WITH A MINDLESS DESIRE
HAND IN YOUR POCKET, BURNT BY THE FIRE
COLD AS THE STONE YOU THREW AT THE WALL
BLOOD NEVER BOILS TILL THE PRESSURE IS HIGH
WITH DESPISE OF THE FEAR THAT FESTERS THE GROWTH
THE TRUTH ALWAYS BECKONS
DON’T LOSE WHAT YOU STOLE

Chorus
FOR ONCE IN THIS LIFE
I BETTER DO SOMETHING RIGHT
DON’T BURY THE VOICE THAT’S NOT YET SPOKEN
I’LL CHALLENGE THE FLAMES
TILL THIS MAN WITH NO COUNTRY REMAINS
STILL CAUGHT IN A WORLD THAT WON’T STOP BURNIN’

RIGHT OR WRONG, THIS IS WHERE I BELONG
I’VE ALWAYS BELONGED
IF THE TRUTH BE KNOWN, THERE’S NO PLACE LEFT TO GO
NO PLACE I CAN GO

BUT THERE IS A LIGHT
THERE’S STILL A SPARK
THERE IS NO PLACE IN THIS ROOM FOR THE DARK
SO SCATTER THE BONES THAT’S LEFT OF THE OLD
FOR DUST ONLY SETTLES WHEN BORED
SETTLES WHEN BORED

Chorus
Track Name: Every Dog Has Its Day
Well I've drunk to drown, on every ocean I've been
Lake Tanganyika, where the crocodiles swim
Halifax, Nova Scotia to Van Diemen's land
Well I drank with the Sultan, down the Suez Canal

Cause Every Dog Has Its Day
Like every woman, she gets her own way
And if there's a ship that sails tonight
I'll captain that too, just to be there with you

Well there was old Jerry Rooney, who was mad as a mule
Spillblood Maloney had a head like one too
That night on the bridge, with my shovel in hand
Well he threatened to kill me, for sure he picked the wrong man

Cause Every Dog Has Its Day
Like every woman, she gets her own way
And if there's a ship that sails tonight
I'll captain that too, just to be there with you

Well there was mutiny in Lagos, aboard the mean ship Skondi
Ten or twelve days in prison, till the bastards set me free
McCloskey you're free

Cause Every Dog Has Its Day
Like every woman, she gets her own way
And if there's a ship that sails tonight
I'll captain that too, just to be there with you

Now I love the sea and she wants me back
So I leave this ol' harbor, with the wind at my back
Goodbye mother Theresa, I hope the kids settle down
I must head for the Chinas, pray to God I don't drown

For Every Dog Has Its Day
Like every woman, she gets her own way
And if there's a ship that sails tonight
I'll captain that too

Cause Every Dog Has Its Day
Like every woman, she gets her own way
And if there's a ship that sails tonight
I'll captain that too, just to be there with you
Track Name: These Exiled Years
It's four in the mornin'
Battered and numb
A loaded room, an empty gun
I whistle a tune, I heard years before
The clock started tickin'
Where did the time go
I danced to the mornin'
She called out my name
The wind was a howlin'
And down came the rain
Her arms they caressed me
Sweet was her brow
She opened my eyes
To banish the doubt
Wash me down in all of your joy
But don't drag me through this again

I've heard all your sad songs I can hear
It's in with the whiskey and out with the gin
I've heard all your sad songs I can hear
It's another day older
In These Exiled Years

The dew on the ground
Blankets the face
Cold was the night
Gone her embrace
For your land of the free
Now prisons me
To rot in this jail
Of lost liberty

Wash me down in all of your joy
But don't drag me through this again

I've heard all your sad songs I can hear
It's in with the whiskey and out with the gin
I've heard all your sad songs I can hear
It's another day older
In These Exiled Years

Walk away, watch me as I wave
One foot here, but sure the other's in the grave
Walk away, walk away

I've heard all your sad songs I can hear
It's in with the whiskey and out with the gin
I've heard all your sad songs I can hear
It's another day older
In These Exiled Years
Track Name: Drunken Lullabies
Must it take a life for hateful eyes
To glisten once again
Five hundred years like Gelignite
Have blown us all to hell
What savior rests while on his cross we die
Forgotten freedom burns
Has the Shepard led his lambs astray
to the bigot and the gun

Must it take a life for hateful eyes
To glisten once again
Cause we find ourselves in the same old mess
Singin' drunken lullabies

I watch and stare as Rosin`s eyes
Turn a darker shade of red
And the bullet with this sniper lie
In their bloody gutless cell
Must we starve on crumbs from long ago
Through these bars of men made steel
Is it a great or little thing we fought
Knelt the conscience blessed to kill

Must it take a life for hateful eyes
To glisten once again
Cause we find ourselves in the same old mess
Singin' drunken lullabies

Ah, but maybe it`s the way you were taught
Or maybe it`s the way we fought
But a smile never grins without tears to begin
For each kiss is a cry we all lost
Though there is nothing left to gain
But for the banshee that stole the grave
Cause we find ourselves in the same old mess
Singin' drunken lullabies

I sit in and dwell on faces past
Like memories seem to fade
No colour left but black and white
And soon will all turn grey
But may these shadows rise to walk again
With lessons truly learnt
When the blossom flowers in each our hearts
Shall beat a new found flame

Must it take a life for hateful eyes
To glisten once again
Cause we find ourselves in the same old mess
Singin' drunken lullabies
Cause we find ourselves in the same old mess
Singin' drunken lullabies
Singin' drunken lullabies
Track Name: You Won't Make A Fool Out Of Me
WRITE THESE WORDS FOR A LOST INSPIRATION
AIN’T THAT A BARREL FULL OF LAUGHS
WORK YOUR ARSE OFF TO PUT CRUMBS ON THE TABLE
BUT THEY FALL HUNGRY ON YOUR LAP
WHATEVER BECAME OF THE SEED
THAT ONCE GREW IN YOUR HAND
AND THE DIRT WHERE YOUR FINGERS DID BLEED
HAS ALL RUSHED TO YOUR HEAD

Chorus
BUT YOU WON’T
NO, NO, NO YOU WON’T
YOU WON’T MAKE A FOOL OUT OF ME

PURSE STRINGS BREAK, THE’RE NOT MADE OF ELASTIC
AND I’M NO PUPPET ON YOUR SHELF
YOU WON’T SING WHEN THIS SINGER IS SONGLESS
I’M NOT A NOTCH ON YOUR FAT BELT
FOR GREEN IS THE HEART OF YOUR GREED
THAT MUCH I CAN TELL
YOU MAY THINK YOU’RE THE CAPTAIN OF ME
BUT I’M YOUR COFFIN SHIP FROM HELL

Chorus

SO I’LL DRAG THESE BONES ACROSS THE EARTH
WITH THE DEAD I’LL NEVER SLEEP
WHERE I’LL HAUNT YOU FOR A THOUSAND YEARS
WITHOUT BREATH YOU’LL NEVER BREATHE
FOR AN EMPTY SHELL YOUR GRAVE WILL FILL
ALAS FOR EVERMORE

Chorus

BITE THE HAND THAT FED YOU FROM NOTHING
GET THAT MONKEY OFF YOUR BACK
EMPTY LIVES BRING FALSE CELEBRATIONS
THAT’S NOT MY MEANING OF SUCCESS
FOR GREEN IS THE HEART OF YOUR GREED
THAT MUCH I CAN TELL

Chorus
Track Name: (No More) Paddy's Lament
THE HEAVENS ROARED, AND O’ THE HEAVENS ROARED
AND THE DROWNING OF A NATION COMMENCED
BUT NOW NO WAVE IMPEDES OR FLOWS
WITH THE TEARS OF YOUNG PADDY’S LAMENTS

WIPE THE BLOOD FROM YOUR LIP
WITH THE FLESH OF YOUR HAND
THERE’S NO THORN IN THE SIDE LEFT TO GROW
SO LET’S CHERISH THE NAMES THAT WERE LOST FOR OUR AGE
WITH THE RUIN NOW THE SUFFER MUST GO
WHERE TRADITIONS THEY BLEND, LIVES A HOME ON THE MEND
THE GRASS GLISTENS NOW FOR ALL SIDES
SO LET’S SEVER THE SHAME
WE HAVE COME TO RECLAIM WITH THE WATER’S RETREAT
FEEL THE SHORE

WHEN THE RED ROSE PALED
LAY A THOUSAND GRAVES MANY MORE
THOUGH THEIR GHOSTS STILL HAUNT
FOR THE DAY WE’VE COME TO LIVE FOR

Chorus
DON’T LOOK BACK FOR WHAT’S DEAD NOW IS SAVED
THE EXILED ARE HOME WHERE THEIR SOULS WERE KEPT SAFE
TAKE ME BACK ON THE CREST OF A WAVE
NO MORE TEARS FOR YOUNG PADDY’S LAMENT
NO MORE TEARS, NO MORE PADDY’S LAMENT

RIP THE GRIEF FROM ITS’ HEART
THERE’S NO SORROW TONIGHT
FOR NOW ONCE BANISHED DREAMS SLEEP DIVINE
WHERE THE SILENCE YOU HEAR IS THE PROSPER WE SHARE
THE ONLY BLADE IS A RAZOR SHARP SMILE

STILL A CHURCH BELL RINGS
TO COLLECT THE SINS THAT STILL ROAM
BUT THE ONLY THING LOST IS THE PAIN
WHEN NOTHING WAS MORE

Chorus

GRAB THE LEAF OF THE BRANCH
FROM THE TREE IN ITS’ GROUND
WHERE THESE ROOTS CLAIM THE EARTH MANY TOILED
TO A LAND THAT NOW STANDS
UNDER NO ONES’ COMMAND
AND HER BEAUTY LET NO MAN DESTROY
SO REMEMBER THE GUN
AND THE DAMAGE IT’S DONE
THE LAST DROP HAS BEEN SPILT
FOR YOU AND I
LET THERE BE NO DESPAIR
FOR THE GLOOM WE ONCE SHARED
BRUSH THE TEAR FROM THE EYE THAT STILL SHINES

WHEN THE RED ROSE PALED
LAY A THOUSAND GRAVES MANY MORE
THOUGH THEIR GHOSTS STILL HAUNT
FOR THE DAY WE’VE COME TO LIVE FOR

Chorus
Track Name: Us Of Lesser Gods
THERE’S A BREEZE THAT’S BLOWIN’ IN FROM THE LAND
INSTEAD OF SALT AIR ALL WE BREATHE IN IS SAND
CRIPPLED THE CLOUD THAT ONCE BROUGHT THE RAIN
GOOD JOB NOW WE’LL NEVER SEE OUR COASTS AGAIN

Chorus
BUT THOSE OF US, THOSE OF US
US OF LESSER GODS
WON’T EAT TILL WE’RE HUNGRY
WON’T DRINK TILL WE’RE PARCHED
BUT THOSE OF US, THOSE OF US
WHO FORGET WHERE WE’RE FROM
CREATE NOW THIS HELL WHERE NO DEVIL COULD SPAWN
TAKE ME BACK, TAKE ME BACK
TO THE WAY LIFE USED TO BE

A WHISPER’S NOW SAYIN’
WHAT WORDS USED TO SPEAK
STARVE MUST THE CHILD, HUNGRY SEX ON TV
FOR NO ACT OF CONTRITION
WILL PARDON THE SOUL
THE DAMAGE NOW GLISTENS
SEE HOW IT GLOWS

Chorus

YESTERDAY IS BETTER THAN IT IS TODAY
AND TODAY WILL BE BETTER THAN TOMORROW THEY SAY
WE DON’T WANT WHAT YOU KNOW
BUT WE KNOW WHAT WE WANT
THAT’S LIVE AND LET LIVE
WE’RE ALL DIFFERENT THAT COUNTS

Chorus

DARK IS THE SHALLOW MAN
PROUD WITHOUT PRIDE
WORNOUT COMES THE WELCOME
FROM A TRUTH THAT NEVER LIES
WEEP NOW FOR THE TEAR
COLD ON THE FACE
SO COME DOWN FROM YOUR HEAVEN LORD
LET ME SHOW YOU HELL ON EARTH
TAKE ME BACK
TO THE WAY LIFE’S NEVER BEEN
Track Name: The Sun Never Shines (On Closed Doors)
I saw her there from afar
Her hair grey charcoal
Takes a drag from her tar
I kissed her a smile
But her blood red shot eye
Said the son never shines on closed doors

It's been eight long years since I saw
The woman who's labored
Since the day I was born
These wrinkles now face
To that cold dark damp place
Where the son never shines on closed doors

She said the son never shines on closed doors
I open to find only hurricanes blow
Take me away back to the green fields of May
Because the son never shines on closed doors

Death comes like a thief in the night
To steal while you sleep
The soul's flickering light
Well maybe it's then
She said, I'll see you again
Because the son never shines on closed doors

She said the son never shines on closed doors
I open to find only hurricanes blow
Take me away back to the green fields of May
Because the son never shines on closed doors

And we all go the same way home
Yeah we all go the same way home
Track Name: Float
DRANK AWAY THE REST OF THE DAY
WONDER WHAT MY LIVER’D SAY
DRINK, THAT’S ALL YOU CAN
BLACKEND DAYS WITH THEIR BIGGER GALES
BLOW IN YOUR PARLOR TO DISCUSS THE DAY
LISTEN, THAT’S ALL YOU CAN

Chorus
AH BUT DON’T, NO DON’T SINK THE BOAT
THAT YOU BUILT, YOU BUILT TO KEEP AFLOAT

SICK AND TIRED OF WHAT TO SAY
NO ONE LISTENS ANYWAY
SING, THAT’S ALL YOU CAN
RAMBLIN’ YEARS OF LOUSY LUCK
YOU MISS THE SMELL OF BURNIN’ TURF
DREAM, THAT’S ALL YOU CAN

Chorus

SINGLED OUT FOR WHO YOU ARE
IT TAKES ALL TYPES TO JUDGE A MAN
FEEL, THAT’S ALL YOU CAN
FILTHY SUITS WITH BIGOT EARS
HIDE BEHIND THEIR OWN WORST FEARS
LIVE, THAT’S ALL YOU CAN
IT’S ALL YOU CAN
IT’S ALL YOU CAN… DO

NO MATTER WHERE I PUT MY HEAD
I’LL WAKE UP FEELIN’ SOUND AGAIN
BREATHE, IT’S ALL YOU CAN
TOMORROW SMELLS OF LESS DECAY
THE FLOWERS GREET THIS BLOOMIN’ FRAY
BE THANKFUL, THAT’S ALL YOU CAN

Chorus

A RIPE OLD AGE
THAT’S WHAT I AM
A RIPE OLD AGE
JUST DOIN’ THE BEST I CAN
Track Name: Tobacco Island
[Chorus]
All to hell we must sail
For the Shores of sweet Barbados
Where the sugar cane grows taller
Than the god we once believed in
Till the butcher and his crown
Raped the land we used to sleep in
Now tommorow chimes of ghostly crimes
That haunt Tobacco Island

'Twas 1659 forgotten now for sure
They dragged us from our homeland
With the musket and their gun
Cromwell and his roundheads
Battered all we know
Shackled hopes of freedom
We're now but stolen goods
Darken the horizon
Blackened from the sun
This rotten cage of Bridgetown
Is where I now belong

[Chorus]

Red leg down a peg
Blistered burns the soul
The floggings they're a plenty
But reasons there are none
Our backs belong to landlords
Where branded is there name
Paid for with ten shillings
Cheap labor never breaks
The silver moon is shinin'
Cools the copper blood
Where the livin' meet the dead
And together dance as one

[Chorus]

Agony, will you cleanse this misery?
For it's never again i'll breathe
The air of home
From this sandy edge
The rolling sea breaks my revenge
With each whisper a thousand waves
I hear roar
I'm coming home

Dark is the horizon
Blackened by the sun
This rotten cage of Bridgetown
Is where I now belong

[Chorus]
Track Name: Rebels Of The Sacred Heart
Now I’m aimin' for heaven
But probably wind up down in hell
Where upon this alter I will hang my guilt ridden head
But it’s time I’ll take before I begin
Three sheets to the wind, Three sheets to the wind
Rebels are we, though heavy our hearts shall always be
Ah, no ball or chain no prison shall keep
We’re the rebels of the sacred heart
I said no ball or chain no prison shall keep
We’re the rebels of the sacred heart

Terrified of the open road
Yeah, where it leads ya never know
But rest assured he’ll be on you back
Yeah, the Holy Ghost through his tongues in black
As the band dog howls and the young girl cries
The blessed virgin in her proud dad’s eye
The albatross hangin' round your neck
Is the cross you bare for your sins he bleeds
Rebels are we, though heavy our hearts shall always be
Ah, no ball or chain no prison shall keep
We’re the rebels of the sacred heart

Genuflect all you refugees who fled the land
Now on guilt you kneel
And say a prayer for those left behind
From beyond the pale to the Northern sky
So you saved your shillins and your last six pence
Cause in God’s name they built a barbed wire fence
Be glad you sailed for a better day
But don`t forget there’ll be hell to pay
Rebels are we, though heavy our hearts shall always be
Ah, no ball or chain no prison shall keep
We’re the rebels of the sacred heart
I said no ball or chain no prison shall keep
We’re the rebels of the sacred heart

Reserrection no protection all things life must be
Ah no ball or chain no prison shall keep
We’re the rebels of the sacred heart

Now bless me father for I have sinned
But it’s the same old story again and again and again
Ah well, such is the bread of an everyday life
From mornin' to noon to this shadowless-night
Rebels are we, though heavy our hearts shall always be
Ah, no ball or chain no prison shall keep
We’re the rebels of the sacred heart
I said no ball or chain no prison shall keep
We’re the rebels of the sacred heart
Track Name: Devil's Dance Floor
Her breath began to speak
As she stood right in front of me
The colour of her eyes
Were the colour of insanity
Crushed beneath her wave
Like a ship, I could not reach her shore
We're all just dancers on the Devil's Dance Floor

Well swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, a little more next to me
Swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, on the Devil's Dance Floor

Pressed against her face
I could feel her insecurity
Her mother'd been a drunk
And her father was obscurity
But nothin' ever came
From a life that was a simple one
So pull yourself together girl
And have a little fun

Well she took me by the hand
I could see she was a fiery one
Her legs ran all the way
Up to heaven and past Avalon
Tell me somethin' girl, what it is you have in store
She said come with me now
On the Devil's Dance Floor

Well swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, a little more next to me
Swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, on the Devil's Dance Floor
Swing a little more, on the Devil's Dance Floor

Well swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, a little more next to me
Swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, on the Devil's Dance Floor

The apple now is sweet
Oh much sweeter than it ought to be
Another little bite
I don't think there is much hope for me
The sweat beneath her brow
Travels all the way
An' headin' south
This bleedin' heart's cryin'
Cause there's no way out

Well swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, a little more next to me
Swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, on the Devil's Dance Floor

Well swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, a little more next to me
Swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, on the Devil's Dance Floor
Swing a little more, on the Devil's Dance Floor
Swing a little more, on the Devil's
Track Name: If I Ever Leave This World Alive
If I ever leave this world alive
I'll thank for all the things you did in my life
If I ever leave this world alive
I'll come back down and sit beside your
feet tonight
Wherever I am you'll always be
More than just a memory
If I ever leave this world alive

If I ever leave this world alive
I'll take on all the sadness
That I left behind
If I ever leave this world alive
The madness that you feel will soon subside
So in a word don't shed a tear
I'll be here when it all gets weird
If I ever leave this world alive

So when in doubt just call my name
Just before you go insane
If I ever leave this world
Hey I may never leave this world
But if I ever leave this world alive

She says I'm okay; I'm alright,
Though you have gone from my life
You said that it would,
Now everything should be all right

She says I'm okay; I'm alright,
Though you have gone from my life
You said that it would,
Now everything should be all right
Yeah should be alright
Track Name: Salty Dog
I'll wait for you till I turn blue
There's nothin' more a man can do
Don't get your bollocks in a twist
Settle down, don't take a fit
Ya drank with demons straight form Hell
They almost nearly won as well
Ya wiped the floor with victory
Then puked until you fell asleep

Blackened was the banshee's wail
These boot will never fill her jail
So you crawled into an empty boat
For the Gulf of Mexico
Till Cortez came an' when so did you
From the ashes charred and blue
Smellin' like a Salty Dog
Back from Hell where you belong

Anarchy, the scourge of every sea
The Antichrist aboard a rig
With us your cutthroat thieves
The ship went down we all near drowned
Ya stood there on the deck
Till the Spanish came and flogged yer arse
And dragged you from the wreck

They threw a rope around yer neck
To watch you dance the jig of death
Then left ya for the starvin' crows
Hoverin' like hungry whores
One flew down plucked out yer eye
The other he had in his sights
Ya snarled at him, said leave me be
I need the bugger so I can see
Track Name: The Lightning Storm
THIS LONELY EXISTENCE PAVES THE WAY
FOR THE HEART OF HEARTS MUST BEAT BE BRAVE
WHILE THIS QUIET LIGHTNING STORM
WRECKS THE HARVEST GOLD WE TRY TO SOW

AND SO IT BEGINS
THE WAY THE BLOOD STILL DANCES
BENEATH THE SKIN
AS THE MESSENGER FROM HELL SAYS
‘WE’RE BOUND TO WIN’
AS THE DAYS THEY COME, BUT THE YEARS THEY GO
SO TAKE CARE OF YOUR FREEDOM
THEY’LL NEVER KNOW

I SIT ON THE WING FOR A BLACKBIRD’S SONG
TO TELL ME WHERE AND WHEN THIS ALL WENT WRONG
THERE’S NO RESOLUTION WITHOUT REMORSE
WITH IGNORANCE BLISS DEFEND
‘LET’S STAY THE COURSE’

PUNCTURE THE SKIN
AND SEE ITS’ BLOOD RUN COLD
ON DESERT SAND
COME HEAR THE MEN FROM MOTHERS
WITH CHILDLESS HANDS
AS THE DAYS THEY COME, BUT THE YEARS THEY GO
SO TAKE CARE OF YOUR FREEDOM
THEY’LL NEVER KNOW
TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOUR FREEDOM
THEY’LL NEVER KNOW

TAKE WHAT YOU GIVE
UNTIL THERE’S NOTHING LEFT
BUT FOREVER LIVE
AND NIGHT DESCENDS ON SHADOWS WITHOUT THEIR KILL
AS THE DAYS THEY COME, BUT THE YEARS THEY GO
SO TAKE CARE OF YOUR FREEDOM
THEY’LL NEVER KNOW
YEAH TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOUR FREEDOM
THEY’LL NEVER KNOW
BUT THE DAYS THEY COME, BUT THE YEARS THEY GO
SO TAKE CARE OF YOUR FREEDOM
THEY’LL NEVER KNOW
Track Name: What's Left Of The Flag
His eyes they closed
and his last breath spoke
he had seen all to be seen
a life once full
now an empty vase
wilt the blossoms
on his early grave

walk away me boys
walk away me boys
and by morning we'll be free
wipe that golden tear
from your mother dear
and raise what's left
of the flag for me
then the rosary beads
count them 1 2 3
fell apart as they hit the floor
in a garb of black
we must pay respect
to the color we were born to mourn
walk away me boys
walk away me boys
and by morning we'll be free
wipe that golden tear
from your mother dear
and raise what's left
of the flag for me

In its place grew
an angry festered wound
full of hatered and remorse
where I pick and scratch
till the blood it matched
silent rage that now fills my lungs
for there are many ways
to kill a man they say
with bayonet, axe or sword
but son a bullet fired
from a shapeless guise
just put the shell of a Thompson gun

walk away me boy
walk away me boys
and by morning we'll be free
wipe that golden tear
from your mother dear
and raise what's left
of the flag for me

from the east out to the western shore
where many men and many more will fall
but no angel flies with me tonight
though freedom reigns on all
and curse the name for which
we slaved our days
so every men chose Kingdom Come
But sure as night turns day
it's the passion play
oh my god
what have they done
with madman's rage
well they dug our graves
but the dead rise again you fools

walk away me boy
walk away me boys
and by morning we'll be free
wipe that golden tear
from your mother dear
and raise what's left
of the flag for me

walk away me boy
walk away me boys
and by morning we'll be free
wipe that golden tear
from your mother dear
and raise what's left
of the flag for me
Track Name: The Wrong Company
Well I fell into prison
At about a quarter to three
Where I found in my cell
A glass waitin' for me
So I filled what was empty
And I pulled up a stool
But he stood in the corner
The Ol' Devil wouldn't move
He said you drink when you're lonely
No I drink when I want
He said you'll never be sober
Sure why would I want that?
I only drink to be merry
But unfortunately...
I'm in the wrong prison cell
And the wrong company
Track Name: The Story So Far
YOU ALWAYS HAD WHAT YOU WANTED
SO LEAVE IT BEHIND
AND IF THE GLASS ISN’T BROKEN
THEN THE FUTURE’S NOT BLIND
ALL THAT YOU KNOW
MEANS NOTHING TO YOU
BUT IT’S THE LOSS OF CONTROL
THAT SHATTERS THE TRUTH

Chorus
‘CAUSE THE STORY SO FAR
IS ALREADY HERE
WE’VE MADE IT THIS FAR
THROUGH THE DAGGERED EDGE SPEARS
BUT LIFE CUTS TO PIECES
TILL THE WOUNDS HOLD NO SECRETS
MAKES IT ALL WHO YOU ARE

LOVE CRAVES SELF DESTRUCTION
IT’S A BLIZZARD IN HAND
YOU LAY YOUR CARDS ON THE TABLE
BUT YOU’RE NOT IN COMMAND
SO BURN WITH THE FIRE
YOU SO EAGERLY LIT
WATCH THE FLAMES FLICKER HIGHER
SAY I DON’T CARE ABOUT ME

Chorus
‘CAUSE THE STORY SO FAR
IS ALREADY HERE
WE’VE MADE IT THIS FAR
THROUGH THE DAGGERED EDGE SPEARS
BUT LIFE CUTS TO PIECES
TILL THE WOUNDS HOLD NO SECRETS
MAKES IT ALL WHO YOU ARE
MAKES IT ALL WHO YOU ARE
MAKES IT ALL WHO YOU ARE
MAKES IT ALL WHO YOU ARE

THOUGH IT’S BITTER THE PILL
THAT YOU SWALLOW TO FEEL
I DON’T CARE WHAT I LOST
I JUST THANK GOD I’M ALIVE
Track Name: The Seven Deadly Sins
Sail away where no ball and chain
Can keep us from the roarin' waves
Together undivided but forever we'll be free
So sail away aboard our rig
The moon is full and so are we
We're seven drunken pirates
We're the seven deadly sins

So the years rolled by and several died
And left us somewhat reelin'
Johnny strummed his Tommy gun
Left blastin' through the ceiling
So what became of rebels
Who sang for you and me?
Grapplin' with their demons
In the seach for liberty

Suffers who suffer all
Can swim upon the desert
Where avarice have ravaged all
In spite of good intentions
Don't fill your mouth with gluttony
For pride will surely swell
But nothing's unforgiven in the four corners of hell

Sail away where no ball and chain
Can keep us from the roarin' waves
Together undivided but forever we'll be free
So sail away aboard our rig
The moon is full and so are we
We're seven drunken pirates
We're the seven deadly sins
We're seven drunken pirates
We're the seven deadly sins

Envy and its evill twin
It crepy in bed with slander
Idiots they gave advice
But sloth it gave no answer
Anger kills the human soul
With butter tales of lust
While pavlov's Dogs keep chewin'
On the legs they never trust

Sail away where no ball and chain
Can keep us from the roarin' waves
Together undivided but forever we'll be free
So sail away aboard our rig
The moon is full and so are we
We're seven drunken pirates
We're the seven deadly sins
We're seven drunken pirates
We're the seven deadly sins

But It's the only life we'll know
Blagards to the bome
So don't wreck yourself
Take an honest grip
For there's more tales beyond the shore

Ah the years rolled by and several died
And left us somewhat reelin'
In and out came crawlin' out
And spewed upon the ceiling
So what became of rebels"
That sang for you and me
Grapplin; with their demons
In the seach for liberty

Sail away where no ball and chain
Can keep us from the roarin' waves
Together undivided but forever we'll be free
So sail away aboard our rig
The moon is full and so are we
We're seven drunken pirates
We're the seven deadly sins

Sail away where no ball and chain
Can keep us from the roarin' waves
Together undivided but forever we'll be free
So sail away aboard our rig
The moon is full and so are we
We're seven drunken pirates
We're the seven deadly sins
We're seven drunken pirates
We're the seven deadly sins
We're seven drunken pirates
We're the seven deadly sins
