Track Name: Every Child In Heaven
The sun has drawn the colour from her glory
Now she stands a mute and a cripple by his side
And the son hangs from the tree and Mary’s broken
There’s no love or compassion in this house, in this house

And when the family prays
Father begs for money
And when the family prays
Mother begs for more
Family prays, sister wants avenging
Every child in heaven cries in shame

A choir of joy and freedom sings his praises
Then America swings in and buys them out
And the new God can be found on every network
So bow down sister and give out, and give out

Now I’m just a memory
A face in a photograph
Taken for granted
Taken for an idiot
You said you loved me
But love me, you never loved me
That was all treachery you tricked me
Oh you tricked me

A knock that shattered silence
I took back the breath of violence
Put my novel on the table
And I walked towards the door
Strangers incognito
Stared wide eyed through my window
With their false smiles of assurance
I screamed and yelled “no more”

God bless America

Every child in heaven cries in shame
Track Name: June In The Water
We walked down together
By the dirty river
She kissed me and I touched her
And I pushed her in the water
She laughed she drowned
Now I hang around the town
I hang around the town

And I miss her
How I miss her
June is in the water
June is in the… water
And she’s going down

Now I watch the girls
Flirting in precinct
They don’t look (decent)
I cut my hair
And held hands with April
She laughed she drowned
Now I hang around the town
I hang around the town

June is in the water
Sometimes I miss her

Sometimes I think about the river
June is dead now
“What you gonna do now boy?”
Floating in the water
No other girl will be the same
Will ever be the same
“What you gonna do now?”
Will ever be the same
“What you gonna do now?”
Will ever be the same
“What you gonna do?”

Oh June
Track Name: Difficult
He looked down
Saw the world at his feet
But the pretty girls
Are not for him

And they said less about love
Because that’s difficult
Don’t take these things on
They’re far too difficult

The torch burns bright for her

Then he wept hard
For the years without meaning
And his thin wrecked frame
Had all cracked in
Then he stood back
From accents and manners
And the beautiful would laugh at him

Don’t take these things on
They’re far too difficult
Track Name: A Safe Place To Hide
Friendships come
And then off they walk away
It’s a wonderful morning
To have cried all day
You spoke too high
And your voice grew tighter
But your humour hits girl
Like a pure street fighter

At times like those
You bring me down
You’re about as funny
As a punch drunk clown

I need a safe place
A safe place to hide
I want a strong love
So I can come inside
And your love girl
Is the warmest place to hide
I want a safe place to hide

I want a safe place
I want a safe house

I want a place
Where I can hide away
I want a place girl
Where I can hide away
Track Name: All I Need Is Change
In strong hours of seclusion
Love never sold me
Sold me that sentence
It seldom sells inspiration

Because I want and I desire this
Give me that feeling
And I promise you this honey
I won’t use that word emotion

But if you break my heart, then I'll break your spine
‘Cos if you don't have the patience girl, then I don't have the time

And I'm so sick of all this pain you're putting me through

In tall letters I have written, “all I need is change”
In tall letters I have written, “all I need is change”

How I loved to watch you sleeping
Kiss and turn girl
But please don't ever turn away

Because you scratch away dead words
And I keep on playing love songs
And remember how I touched you?
I can't find that touch these days
Track Name: Dance The House Down
Welcome to boys town
The sweet stench of murder
Red meat and alcohol
Gun smoke and blood

View from a window
Green fields and factories
Fish served on Fridays
And rivers that burn

Be in love girl
Be in love boy
Then it’s hands to the rifle
Leave the carefree
Leave the careless
And dance this house down

Welcome to boys town
The sweet stench of murder
Red meat and alcohol
Gun smoke and blood

Newspaper stories
“Girl raped on steel spike”
File under fiction
That never happens here
Track Name: The Grim English Joke
The country moves on down
To another second series
For the righteous
And the wretched
And the women with diseases
Drink truly awful cocktails
Throwing smiles
Against the walls

"Sophistication"
Dear God, how they want it
And if you want to be cruel,
Then ask them to spell it…

The dumb lads and lasses
Of the thick working classes
Are left with the misery
Of the grim English joke.

In the dull public houses
They talk about the great mistake
Of Pig sweat and cigarettes
Scum-scratching lives

Meanwhile, back at home…

Julie cleans the ornaments
They’re gifts from her mother
It's all she has left to admire
The bastard husband's gone
And Anne-Louise is crying…..
Track Name: Red Star Blue Heart
The man with the world at his fingertips
Is found preaching in a city street
He says "take the weight from my shoulders"
The breath's stale and the back is bent
He says ,"this is my advice;
you should take the money from the rich mans hand"

He wore a red star
She has a blue heart
He wore a red star
She has a blue heart

And you can love it to death
In the casual way
She said "the world is up for a change"
Love it to death
In the casual way
Red star, blue heart

The man who sings songs about victory
Would dismiss the wind from angels wings
And ignore the truth from suffering
The breath's stale and the back is bent
He says "I'm so tired of holding sins for the devil and his children"

Now you can take offence at stupid words
From the head of an ignorant man who works
Breaks his soul to keep some man fat
And won't speak out for a better world

Red Star
Blue Heart
Track Name: At Home With The Walls
She says Sunday Is the best of the week
Cooks animal with vegetable
A triumph of stupidity
He reads the lies he’ll later speak
A plan and simple man is Mr Wall

At home with the walls
The Tv does the talking
At home with the walls
The foundations are cracking
Because its;
Meat course
Sweet course
A plan and simple man is Mr Wall

He says Friday is the best of the week
Hates the Asian, blames the Jew
It’s the beginning of the end
If they move into his street
A plan and simple man is Mr Wall

They say this time is the worse there has been
They say change cannot be radical
And a world of Walls agree

Don't be heard and don’t be seen
At home with the Walls
