Unclear – Painting You

Sunday, October 30th, 2016

First recorded in 1994 for the short Film  ‘The Time it take to Light a Cigarette’

 

Pretty things wishful thoughts

I inhale it to forget it all

 

Un Un Unclear

 

little bits, eat more

make noise, turn back

 

Un Un Unclear clear clear

 

The connection is depressed

throw it in the fire

 

Un un unclear clear clear

 

everything is not everything is not

everything everything everything

 

Un un unclear clear clear

Good Bye Mr Blue Sky – Painting You

Thursday, October 27th, 2016

From the album ‘Opera afterwards & Nightsessions‘ rewritten 2016 ‘I think this was meant to be an environment song’.

 

Good day Mr Blue Sky

How are you, good ok

You see it’s like heroin

I kill you, I kill myself

and how are you mother earth

 

Bye bye bye bye

bye bye good bye

bye bye bye bye

bye bye good bye

 

I rape you I destroy you

I lie to you I hate you

Mister Blue Sky

Mother Earth

 

Like mist blowing over the sky

Your hands are tied but you don’t deserve to die

tell me why why why

Born to die

tell me why why why

Mister Blue Sky

 

Bye bye bye bye

bye bye good bye

bye bye bye bye

bye bye good bye

Trademark is Protected – Painting You

Friday, October 21st, 2016

From the Album ‘Opera afterwards

 

It always, turns to, sadness everything that I do

Spirit desert me and fly west

but the trademark still is protected, can not copy

all the Angels hold me now, while I cling to her holy grace

and I find there is no space

 

Shut up,  start this off, rewind

every line of dignity is enveloped in hope

but the trademark still is protected, do not copy

all the Angels hold me now, while I cling to her holy grace

and I find there is no space

 

oh  the trademark still is protected, do not copy f*** you

all the Angels hold me now, while I cling to her holy grace

and I find there is no space

Devil’s Door – Painting You

Thursday, October 20th, 2016

From the album ‘ Opera Afterwards

 

Long time ago

I tried, to tell the truth

but the words that I spoke

not a word was heard

shield the light from my face

shield the light from my face

 

The devil is knocking on your door

Which way will you turn for more

angel angel angel

 

Now you stand so tall

but your money does not count at all

your heading for a fall

nothing I can do at all

your on your knees

your garden is full of weed

I know you have to feed

but not your need

 

Shield the light from my face

shield the light from my face

 

The devil is knocking on your door

which way will you turn for more

the devil is knocking on your door

it is time to collect the debt

devil devil devil

 

 

Shield the light from my face

shield the light from my face

the devil is knocking on your door

Which way will you turn for more

the devil is knocking on your door

it is time to collect the debt

 

Angel

Midnight Star

Tuesday, September 27th, 2016

From the album ‘The Gospel according to Who‘ and ‘Night Sessions

Midnight Star

To know is not to ask

unless you are totally made of glass

Keep Turning, in the Sky

Midnight Star alright

 

The feast in the daylight it is achieving

the lives that we live there so deceiving

Keep Turning, in the Sky

Midnight Star alright

 

Keep Turning, in the Sky

Midnight Star alright

Your so high, your so high, I don’t know

I am so low, I am so low I don’t know

I am so low, I am so low God knows

got to go, got to go, got to go

 

Keep Turning, in the Sky

Midnight Star alright
