Haunting, intelligent singer-songwriter.

RIGHTEOUS

You can see everyday in a starving child’s eyes You can see it in Parliament in the politicians lies You can see it in the violence of a drunken weekend night And you can see it in the streets in the past stains of a fight You can see it…

THE PRICE OF PEACE

The rigging of elections The buying of power The innocent civilians Taking refuge and cower Bombing of cities, children, schools Collateral damage Cook the books, keep them smooth Deformities of birth Biological spores Chernobyl Selling tickets for tourists We’ve got religion We’ve got New World Order Tradition of suspicion Genocide…

DEMONS AND ANGELS

Are we simply products of their time? Corruption, politics, organised crime It comes as no surprise the game is rigged The poor get poorer and the rich stay rich Irony of technology makes us talk even less War is peace, freedom slavery, ignorance is strength Demons and angels, just different…

PANDEMONIUM

Bullets, tanks, strategies, plans These are the glories of war Boy’s toys, panic noise What are we fighting for? Bombs, limbs, mines, lessons Follow your orders, don’t you dare ask questions LEFT RIGHT RIGHT LEFT RIGHT LEFT The name of peace, the good, the bad, the dead It’s pandemonium Grenades,…

MEDIA MACHINE

Did it creep up slowly? Like cancer upon our nation Or has it always been Dripping acid through our stations? When did we become so callous, cruel, uncaring? There are no hero’s left Only gladiatorial spectating Just like cattle, people standing, staring, filming The violence on the little screen Uploading…

FOREIGN LANDS

Turn blind eye to genocide, there’s no oil in the ground You can fill the skies with you hate & lies and the power of your machines But if push comes to shove, would you throw this world into war? The ramblings of an old man’s foolish pride and nothing…

FEAR THE FEAR

They took away all my toys Stopped a boy being a boy All the bats in belfry had flown away They think their helping me With diagrams of ‘BUN’ theory But apparently, I’m off fishing again Quick! I can feel her lying in wait And it’s time to self-medicate A…

The Eye of Hell  

Everyone knows the game is rigged Snake oil and a powered wig Mistletoe’s deadly as the Devil’s fresh fig And the Eye of Hell never sleeps High streets are catacombs’ Online transactions have killed their soul Egg timers of ash inside a dust bowl And the Eye of Hell never…

LIFE’S RICH PAGEANT — PART II

Young man you’ve come of age Go out and earn an honest wage Forget all the lies they taught you They aren’t no good for nothing in the real world They won’t answer your questions They won’t make any sense It’s all about the dollars, the cents, the pounds, the…

LIFE’S RICH PAGEANT — PART I 

Cold air, bright light, scream as you fight for life Lungs fill, first breath, Genesis once more the test Maybe the spoon will be silver, for the majority it’s probably not Maybe an accident of birth, survival of what you’ve got And it’s part of life’s rich pageant Some lies…

Black Rain

You once believed in creation But then you discovered science Do you feel earth’s frustration? A wet nurse for our violence Well if this Government were a product Then selling it would be illegal And if God was down among us By now he would be using the needle And…

San La Muertre

Long duster, black as tar Some say the Devil is her brother With rosemary beads always held in hand And a scroll in the other A collector of the departing Walks this earth relentlessly Your guide along the path The method of our madness The scrolls are signed and sealed…

Rose Coloured Glasses

There’s a crack in the sink, the plasters peeling free These passing years, dull like cold coffee Time’s moving fast and you’re chasing shadows She is fickle, she is shallow There’s always a question left to answer Upon an idle palm the devil dances faster Keep looking back but not…

The Outside In

Stepping backwards I have seen the bigger picture Perceptions distorted A trick of smoke and mirrors I miss Christine I miss my sister I miss my friend You had no right to take her And the medication their feeding me Appears to be wearing thin Now I been shown the…

My Father

Is it me? Or am I just growing older? Or is the world outside growing slowly colder? We drink and waste So many years But there’s always tomorrow so who really cares? You bite your lip Tolerate everyone else But come to that, you never cared much for yourself Why…

Method in our madness

Beware of the lunatics Off the beaten path Finally got a hose to my car But by now I had run out ofgas Then I saw a stranger’s hand Then I saw a stranger’s hand And a voice that lead me to a promised land Metallic taste like a greasy…

Let he without sin  

Cheese chess pieces on a chopping board Egg timer for a head There is a ship and an ocean inside a bottle A gramophone on the bed Sunset kisses on the mushroom cloud Pale pink pigs in flight Laying in a hammock of banana skin Boxes frying sunny side Smoking…

Brother’s Keeper

With a ladder of human backbones The Devil climb’s from outside his wall He is picking limbs from the trees That grow in the garden of Hell It is full down inside Among the flames and the unworthy The gates are slowly closing And the dead will walk the earth…

I Want Out

What turns down the colour? What makes the panic attack? Who draws the daggers? When you turn your back I feel like an actor In some second-rate scripted part I feel like a gambler In a game rigged before the start Well I will sit underneath my lemon tree Whilst…

An Enemy of The State

The right is getting strongerIt is thinning out on the leftThe rich are getting richerThe working man is squeezed to death I have seen the monkeyAnd the man in his bright blue hat The car bombs on TVThe suicide attacks 2 minutes of hate a day The Ministry of Truth…
