Lyrics: 

Eddie boy lit like paraffin spending two weeks in a crack house
Burns on his brain like Chernobyl.

Dean was seen with a two bag purchase
He was lying dead on his mother's bed
Someone to pray for, till I met you

Life is like a broken arrow, memory a swingin' door
I could be your great misfortune
I can make you happy every day of your life
Makin' my love like a shining star, takin' my love just a touch too far

Tessie turns tricks with a soul like ice cause love left holes
And four swell kids breaking her heart
I've got windows, I've seen much vice, I've touched down with vermin, cowardice, lice

And I say
Nobody cares what you do, please be yourself to death
I could be your great misfortune
But you'll never find a bet you'll never find a better man.
Making my love like a shining star
Taking my love just a touch too far.

Peter met Frank formed a dummy run gang
Worked heist or hit for 10 g's flat
Blew heads outta shape in the name of Trotsky, Sinn-Fein, Hitler cashdown
No hope heroes cover this page with debts in hell and fingers in blood
Poor little bodies all covered in scabs threw it all away
Another life in the grave
Another life in the grave

Life is like a broken arrow- memory a swingin' door
I could be your great misfortune-
Well I could make you happy every goddamn single day of your life

Making my love like a shining star
Like a shining star
Babe that's what you are
Like a shining star

Making my love like a shining star
Taking my love
Just a touch too far

Glass Spider

Lyrics: 

Up until one century ago there lived, in the Zi Duang provence of eastern country
A glass-like spider
Having devoured its prey it would drape the skeletons over its web, in weeks creating a macabre shrine of
remains
Its web was also unique in that it had many layers,
like floors of a building

At the top of this palace-like place, assembled with almost apparent care, were tiny, shining objects,
glass, beads, dew-drops.
One could almost call it an altar.
When the breeze blew thru this construction,
It produced sounds of wailing, crying.
Tiny wails, tiny cries.

The baby spiders would get scared and search frantically for their mother.
But the Glass Spider would have long gone, having known that the babies
would survive somehow on their own.
Oh- The Glass Spider had blue eyes almost like a human's.
They shed tears at the wintered turn of the centuries.

Don't you hear this wasted cry, Life is over you
(Mummy come back 'cause the water's all gone)
But you've seen who's in heaven. Is there anyone in hell?
(Mummy come back 'cause it's dark now)
Take care, take care.
(Mummy come back 'cause the water's all gone)
Somewhere she glows divine. Somewhere she wakes alone.
But you, you've promise in your lovin' eye. God it's dark now.

Jah Jah Jah Jah Jah
Jah Jah Jah Jah Jah

Gone, Gone the water's all gone
Mummy come back 'cause the water's all gone
Stay low on the ground. Fire can drive you, savage and afraid
Spitting on the dawn, come along before the animals awake
Gone, gone, the water's all gone
Mummy come back 'cause its dark now
Run, run, we've been moving all night, rivers to the left.
If your mother don't love you then the riverbed might
Gone, gone, the water's all gone
Mummy come back 'cause the water's all gone

Jah Jah Jah Jah Jah
Jah Jah Jah Jah Jah

Gone gone the water's all gone,
Mummy come back 'cause the water's all gone

Lyrics: 

Yeah Yeah Yeah
Yeah Yeah

You've arrived in the land of a thousand different names
Where the fabulous sons have crashed their planes in flames
Now tomorrow is back claiming redemption is on your heels
And a toothless past is asking you how it feels
And me my little red Corvette has driven by
My fair weather heart has fallen in
My rainy day girl is feeling down
And she tells me that the world is spinning round
I say the dream was all for you
You're nobody else
Tonight the Zeroes were singing for you

Yeah

Hi, can I walk you home again today,
Gotta get forgive and forget hey-hey
Something good is happening I don't know what it is,
Don't you know we're back on trial again today?
And it's breaking wine for you
Hell it's only 'cause you're true
Someone outtimed my heart
Stopping and preaching and letting love in
You are my moon, you are my sun
Heaven knows what you are
Tonight the Zeroes are singing for you

Yes they were,
Tonight the Zeroes were singing for you
Tonight the Zeroes were singing for you

Doesn't matter what you try to do
Doesn't matter what you try to do
Doesn't matter where you try to go
Doesn't matter who we really are

Lyrics: 

When I believed in nothing I called her name
Trapped in a high-dollar joint in someplace I called her name
And though my days are slipping by
And nights so cruel I thought I'd die
She danced her little dance till it made me cry
She was shakin' like this honey doing that

When I needed soul revival I called your name
When I was falling to pieces I screamed in pain

Your soothing hand that turned me round
A love so real swept over me
You danced your little dance till it make me cry
You were shakin' like this honey doing that

Never let me down She never let me down
Never let me down She never let me down

When all your faith is failing Call my name
When you've got nothing coming Call my name

I'll be strong for all it takes
I'll cover your head till the bad stuff breaks
I'll dance my little dance till it makes you smile
Shaking like this honey doing that

Never let you down I'll never let you down
I'll never let you down I'll never let you down

Lyrics: 

Photograph king, watches you go
Fashions may change, heaven knows, but you still leave a stain on me

Supplement queen, your colours may fade
Seasons may change, weather blows, but you still leave a mark

Wrong-negative fades - never the twain, reckless and tame

I like the beat of your drum
I like to look in your eyes
I like to look thru your things
I'd like to beat on your drum

I like the smell of your flesh
I like the dirt that you dish
I like the clothes that you wear
I'd like to beat on your drum

Disco brat - follow the pack
Watching you peel, heaven knows, prison can't hold all this greedy intention

Vanity's child- picture you now
Music may change hi-di-ho keen to follow your nose

Wrong-love out of tune
Sweet is the night, bright light destroys me

Chorus:
I like the beat of your drum
I like to look in your eyes
I like to look thru your things
I'd like to beat on your drum

I like the smell of your flesh
I like the dirt that you dish
I like the clothes that you wear
I'd like to beat on your drum

I'd like to beat on your drum
I'd like to beat on your drum
I like your face in the crowd
I'd like to beat on your drum

I'd like to beat on your drum
I'd like to beat on your drum
I'd like to blow on your horn
I'd like to beat on your drum
