Brilliantine Mortality

Albert's Eyes
The emotion in a stomach acid
Is equal to the depth of Albert's eyes
And all of the equations that were mastered
Belong to average ordinary life
Yeah I know, it's so natural
Yeah I know, I've been here before
But only if I ask you
And maybe not at all
When you look down and see that you were playing
Upon the greatest oceanic truth
Yeah I mostly understand what you were saying
And after all there's quite a lot of proof
But only if I ask you
And maybe not at all
Its getting colder in Alaska
But round here its getting warm

Chords

Apologies to Insect Life
Oh Fyodor, you are the most attractive man
Oh Fyodor, you are the most attractive man I know
Your Russian heart is strong and has been bleeding for too long
Oh molasses, it's like bad acid
It's getting nasty, she knows
Gymnastic whores down on all fours with septic pores and fucked-up bores
I would like to give you more molasses
Oh Molasses, its like bad acid
It's getting nasty, she knows
She knows
Apologies to insect life
What I did was not very nice
From them to her, to me to you,
Sometimes you know it goes right through, my love

Be Gone
Be gone, be gone
Be gone your olden ways be gone
Don't be afraid of anyone
Like seasons just move on
Aorta, liver, ventricles
And other winter vehicles
From indigo to crystaline
You've one more chance
So get it right
Oh Floreal!
Oh guillotine!
Oh Floreal!
I love your iridescent sheen
As it reflects you and reflects me
Oh don't believe
All of your golden memories
They're little more than make believe
So listen carefully
Agonic lines, ascendecies
And amatory tendences
From here to heart arrhythmias
Oh don't you know we're not like this
Oh Floreal!
Oh guillotine!
Oh Floreal!
I love your iridescent sheen
As it reflects you and reflects me
Oh Floreal!
Oh guillotine!
Oh Floreal!
I love your iridescent sheen
As it reflects you and reflects me

Blackout
Welcoming the cool rain in of the astounding dawn
Watch the birds hovering over Narrow Moor
In deeper lines of deeper sleep, into the tumuli
All the pretty machineries under the sky
For you have drunk all your beer
Go drown your empty selves
For then you will have lost it all the last of this island
As you blackout
Lookout again my love
So bring it down, let it fall, to a drizzling bliss
Then we'll hyperventilate in the old forest
Then I will see all those things
Things that cannot be seen
For you have drunk all your beer
Go drown your empty selves
For then you will have lost it all
The last of this island
Where I'll be (x7)
As you blackout
Lookout again, my love, again, my love

You blackout again
And again, my love (x6)

Chords

Carrion
Carry on inside of your heart
Under the brine you won't notice the dark
Can stone and steel and horses heels
Ever explain the way you feel?
From Scapa Flow to Rotherhithe,
I felt the lapping of an ebbing tide
Oh the heavy water how it enfolds
The salt, the spray, the gorgeous undertow
Always, always, always the sea
Brilliantine mortality
So irrigate your heart until you know you're complete
And you're draped in kelp, below by 8,000 feet
My soul, she cried, I thought you'd died
Amid fumes of formaldehyde
You have been gone for so long
I felt the lapping of an ebbing tide
I felt the lapping of an ebbing tide
Oh the heavy water how it enfolds
The salt, the spray, the gorgeous undertow
Always, always, always the sea
Brilliantine mortality
When this Corpus Christic isle became a land of ocean blue
Again, she cried, you turned my eye,
At mentions of, no matter why,
And in the end, an August sun,
And one by one we blew
Until the devil screamed in the evermore
And in the open graves we saw
Oh the heavy water how it enfolds
The salt, the spray, the gorgeous undertow
Always, always, always the sea
Brilliantine mortality
Oh the heavy water how it enfolds
The salt, the spray, the gorgeous undertow
Always, always, always the sea
Brilliantine mortality

Childhood Memories
Jesus the weather was so good today
But I believe a change is on the way
And a little electricity won't hurt
And no a little electricity won't hurt
Especially when we're all out of gas
And coal and oil, and steel and cash
But a little electricity wont hurt
And no a little electricity won't hurt
And your politeness it could kill
And it's more than likely that it will
First it was getting better now it's getting worser
And then it's getting wetter, now the ice age is complete
So everybody go...
God help us if the radiation leaks
God help us if nobody knows for weeks
But a little electricity won't hurt
And no a little electricity won't hurt
And your politeness it could kill
And it's more than likely that it will
First it was getting better now it's getting worser
And it's getting wetter better call the hearse-a!
And can we move a little faster and go a little further
Move a little faster
Go and everybody go home
And everybody go that
And everybody go this way
And everybody go that way
Everybody go
And we go, and we go, and we go...
A little childhood memory

Don't you want to be a bird?
Don't you want be a bird?
Don't you want see me fly?
Don't you want to even try now?
Don't you want to even try?

Don't you want be a bird?
Don't you want see me fly?
Don't you want to even try now?
Don't you want to even try?

Cos the world is full of sickness
Together we can fix it

Whatever we can think of
Everybody be a bird
Don't you want to be a cow?
Don't you want to be that now?
Make your own milk and drink it

Cos the world is full of sickness
Together we can fix it
Don't you want to be my girl?
Don't you want to be my girl?
Live together in a picture
Be whatever we can think of
Don't you want be a bird?
Don't you want see me fly?
Don't you want to even try now?
Don't you want to even try?

Everybody be a bird
Everybody be a bird
Everybody be a bird
Everybody be a bird
Everybody be a bird
Bird (x6)


Favours in the Beetroot Fields
Who's a little Caesar taking all the world
Who's a little Caesar breaking all the records
Who's a little Caesar
Who's a little Caesar
Who's a little Caesar taking all the world
The universe is a record of everything you say and do
Who's a little Caesar
Who's a little Caesar
The universe is a record of everything you say and do
The north island isle is a mighty good isle
The north island isle is a mighty good isle
The north island isle
North island isle
North island isle

Fear of Drowning
Jesus fucking Christ, oh god no!
From the moment that you realise
Most of this ain't real
To the moment that you decide
Shall we go out tonight
And we'll swim from these island shores
Till there's a fear of drowning
A little fear of drowning
A little fear of drowning
I think that I can see ya,
And I would give my eyes to see ya
Oh little England
Tonight I'll swim
From my favourite island shores
And how long has it been
Since you have seen so beautifully
(So beautifully)
All the money in the world
Won't help you now
The only way is down
But you know from way out here
There is a little fear
A little
fear of drowning
A little fear of drowning
A little fear of drowning
Oh little England
Tonight I'll swim
From my favourite island shores
And how long has it been
How long has it been
And how long has it been
Since you have seen so beautifully
Oh little England
Tonight I'll swim
From my favourite island shores
And how long has it been
Since you have seen so beautifully

Good, Good Boys
The aged boys and the deceased
Are asking now for their reprise
They're building things with wood and wire
See them now before they expire
Gotta listen
You know you've really gotta listen
Gotta listen
You know you've really gotta listen
We need some good good boys
Some reliable boys
Need some good good boys
We need some good good boys
Some reliable boys
Need some good good boys
They're working now with brick or bale
But on the diatonic scale
Between harmony and discord
There is a place so come aboard
You gotta listen
All you've gotta do is listen
You gotta listen
All you've got to do is listen
We need some good good boys,
Some reliable boys
Need some good good boys
We need some good good boys
Some reliable boys
Need some good good boys
We need some good good boys
Some reliable boys
Need some good good boys
Some reliable boys
We need some good good boys
Some reliable boys
Need some good good boys
Some reliable boys
We need some good good boys
Reliable boys

Chords

It Ended On An Oily Stage
Everything you said was true
Everything you did was you
Everything it started with the
Ended on an oily stage where
I wrote elegiac stanzas for you
I hope and pray that they come true
He found God in a parking lot
And you did not
I, I headed for the coastalry
Regions of mine
To see what I'd find
But I do understand why they're looking at you
As if you ever really cared
All across the Eastern board
Languages were being lost
You look so elegantly bored now
Totally at ease with it all yeah
Whilst you were drunk you let it all slip
I hope and pray that it's OK
He found God in a Wiltshire Field
Whilst you did not
I, I headed for the coastalry
Regions of mine
To see what I'd find
But I do understand why they're looking at you
As if you ever really cared
He found God in a Wiltshire Field
And you did not
I, I headed for the coastalry
Regions of mine
To see what I'd find

Lately
Lately you seem like another language
Are you in trouble, are you in trouble again?
And you know how they say
The past is a foreign country
How can we go there
How can we go where we once went?
Have I been standing here for so long
Nature's found a way of telling you that it was going wrong
So which way do I go to get out of here
Avoiding land mines, and all the other stuff round here
Replacing Hercules with the heroic sounds of Formby
Remove the tunic's touch, stood aside from the putch
Stood aside from history
Have I been standing here for so long
Nature's found a way of telling you that it was going wrong
Across the Kategaat, maybe Outer Java
Oh did you wonder if these days we'll stay true
All through the years, all through the dead scenes
All through the memories, across the memories, melodies, melodies
Have I been standing here for so long

Nature's found a way of telling you that it was going wrong

 

 

Do you like my megalithic rock?
Do you like my prehistoric rock?
Do you like my teutonic rock?
Do you like my priapic rock?
Do you like my neolithic rock?
Do you like my messianic rock?
Do you like my megalithic?
Do you like my megalithic rock?
Do you like my neolithic rock?
Do you like my priapic rock?
Do you like my teutonic rock?
Do you like my megalithic?
Do you like my megalithic rocK?

The Lonely
Since I found out that all of this
Is nothing more than emptiness
Filled with impermanence
A guided tour of your deepest fears
Designed to help your vision clear
We'll depart from here
And then the strangest feeling drifted over me
Oh we'll begin where you give in now baby dear
Are thou misunderstood?
I'll drink all day and play by night
Upon my Casio electric piano
Till in the darkness I see lights
But not candelabra
But things from other stars
Just like Liberace
I will return to haunt you with peculiar piano riffs
So take it back, back to the start
Rip out your lily-livered hearts
And hand them over in a vacum-sealed jar
I say I will not take half a risk
I will not walk half deceased
I believe bravery exists
And the strangest feeling drifted over me
Are thou misunderstood?
I'll drink all day and play by night
Upon my Casio electric piano
Till in the darkness I see lights
But not candelabra
But things from other stars
I'll drink all day and play by night
Upon my casio electric piano
Till in the darkness I see lights
But not candelabra
But things from other stars

A Lovely Day Tomorrow
We've been away for so long now
Found out life's coming back somehow
Over Bohemia and Moravia
We came from very far away
And while we kept on saying
In our contaminated paradise
It'll be a lovely day tomorrow
It'll be a lovely day tomorrow
It'll be a lovely day tomorrow
It'll be a lovely death tomorrow
To find a beginning in an end
And halt the devil's Mercedes Benz
Suspended in sidereal space
With a vacuum sound of horror
And while we kept on dancing
In our contaminated paradise
It'll be a lovely day tomorrow
It'll be a lovely day tomorrow
It'll be a lovely day tomorrow
It'll be a lovely death tomorrow
And while we kept on drinking
And then the air goes quiet

Chords

Moley and Me
The fins and the curves
They don't make them like that anymore
So we went out for a walk
Where we have always loved
Those dells and guns
Where they cannoned off everything
In the factory yards
Just two weasals
We were born without hearts
And they don't treat us so well anymore
Even though we know it's all there
No, they don't treat us so well anymore, anymore
We would spend our time
Moley and me
Killing everybody
We would spend our time
Killing everybody
Greywater mudflats
Filled us with ants in his heels
Close your eyes and disappear
Can you hear a noise?
This is a noise we could easily stop
An echo of diesel train
Grey overcast days
But now we're digging for bones in the mire
In the mire
We would spend our time
Moley and me
Killing everybody
We would spend our time
Killing everybody
We would spend our time
Moley and me
Killing everybody

We would spend our time
Killing everybody

We would spend our time
Killing everybody
Spend our time

Killing everybody (x5)

Chords

No Red Indian
In a place where no one knows
I secede whilst next door low and behold
A girl is waiting pleasantly placing
Animals through my hair and hers
I have no complaints to restrain me
The ship has gone to places far gone
She will follow, elegant strides
Forget-me-nots, thunder in my guts
You are the custodian of your own stomach
And all that's in it
Colonic irrigation, dear,
Followed by sex and beer
I am there while you are here
I am no Indian you are no fairy
This place will be a mess in a day
So why not go our separate ways?
I am no red Indian

Remember Me
Do you worry about your health
Do you watch it slowly change
And when you listen to yourself,
Does it feel like somebody else?
And did you notice when you began to disappear?
Was it slowly at first
Until there's nobody really there?
Increment by increment
Increment by increment
Increment by increment
Oh remember me
Oh remember me
Will you remember me?
Oh remember me
Oh remember me
Will you remember me?
Did half of you pass away
Oh what about the other half
Oh what about the other half -
Whatever!
We're all part of the same old fucking regime
With someone taking it out whilst you were putting it in and in
Increment by increment
Increment by increment
Oh let me be your instrument!
Oh remember me
Oh remember me
Will you remember me?
Oh remember me
Oh remember me
Will you remember me?
Oh remember me
Oh remember me
Will you remember me?
And from the here and now unto eternity
Will you remember me?

Chords

Salty Water
And would you care if you fell in?
And would your best friends follow you?
All out to sea, oh silence ye
Your salty water's hard to swallow
Yeah I know, Yeah I know
When all your greatest hopes
Were all bound up in ropes
All bound up in ropes
Shall we leave the bodies in the Peak District
Under rattles and twigs and where Honey said
Hope that we can go there soon
I hope that we can go there soon
I hope that we can go back soon
And if you float you are in trouble
And if you don't then so long
All out to see, to silence ye
Whose holy water's hard to swallow
Yeah I know, Yeah we know
When all my greatest hopes
Were all bound up in ropes
Were all bound up in ropes
When all my greatest hopes
Were all bound up in ropes
Were all bound up in ropes
And ceremoniously destroyed
When all my greatest hopes
Were all bound up in ropes
All bound up in ropes
We'll leave our bodies in the Peak District
Under rattles and twigs and maybe holly sticks
All bound up in ropes
And ceremoniously destroyed
One by one by you

Chords

The Smallest Church in Sussex
I would often go there
To the tiny church there
The smallest church in Sussex
Though it once was larger
How the rill may rest there
Down through the mist there
Toward the Seven Sisters
Toward those white cliffs there
I would often stay there
In the tiny yard there
I have been so glad here
Looking forward to the past here
But now you are alone
None of this matters at all

Something Wicked
Where the ancient oak leaf clusters grew
The deaths head hawk moth flew
Something wicked this way comes
The swallow is depicted there along your fuselage
And something wicked this way comes
I'm not waiting for you
I'm not waiting for you
I'm not waiting for you
It's breaking up, it's getting far away
I used to know what I wanted to say
Please remove your field grey coveralls
Your works of nature are unnatural,
Are unnatural, are unnatural
Well the lake was clear as crystal
The best tea I ever had
And something wicked this way comes
It starts with love for foliage and ends in camouflage
And something wicked this way comes
I'm not waiting for you
I'm not waiting for you
I'm not waiting for you
It's breaking up, it's getting far away
I used to know what I wanted to say.
Please remove your field grey coveralls
Your works of nature are unnatural
It's breaking up, it's getting far away
I used to know what I wanted to say.
Please remove your field grey coveralls
Are unnatural, are unnatural
Are unnatural, are unnatural
I'm not waiting for you
I'm not waiting for you

Chords

Strange Communication
Well I don't even remember the fall
And I don't even remember at all
And you'll probably never see me again
Such a strange communication
Such a strange communication
Where the air and heaven knows what else collides
Where the air and heaven knows what else collides
What else collides

Chords

Spirit of St Louis
Come all of ye, sing Louis, Louis
Come all of ye sing Louis, Louis
And do you know his name was Lindy
He flew the spirit of St. Louis
We'll raise the spirit of St.Louis
If all of ye'd sing Louis, Louis
Come all of ye sing
Come all of ye sing
Come all of ye ah sing Louis, Louis
There's a little trouble in the starboard wing
And a number of stuka's are coming in
Are just coming in
Oh Louis, Louis
Hey Louis, Louis
Hey Louis, Louis
Yeah Louis, Louis
Oh Louis, Louis, Louis, Louis, Louis
Louis, Louis, Louis, Louis, Louis
Louis, Louis, Louis, Louis, Louis
Louis, Louis

When I Go Out
When I go outside these days
Almost everything seems strange
There are things I'd like to say
But they get swallowed on the way
Oh these are the things that I have seen
Whilst trying to love to love the cold
Oh these are the things that I have seen
Whilst trying to love to love this cold
Cold wings and cold feet
Frozen by the snow and sleet
Tiny wings and tiny feet
Frozen by the snow and sleet

A Wooden Horse
When wooden horses were in use
I would have built one
And left it for you
But I wanted to know
I just wanted to know
How much are you?
How much are you?
How much are you?
How much are you?
I just wanted to know
I just wanted to know
Oh bring it in and let us see it
Oh let us see it
Oh bring it in and let us see it
Oh let us see it
Oh bring it in
And let us see it
A token heir means nowt in the hills
Not when I'm ready,
Yeah I'm ready to kill
I just wanted to know
I just wanted to know
Oh bring it in and let us see it
Oh let us see it
Oh bring it in and let us see it
Oh let us see it
Oh bring it in
Yeah bring it in
Oh bring it in and let us see it
Yeah let us see it
So bring it in and let us see it
Let us see it
Oh bring it in
