Weighted down by possessions
Weighted down by the gun
Waited down by the river for you to come

My darling, you're darning my action
Of when three months, I was gone
But whose socks were you darning, darling
While I been gone so long?

Weighted down by possessions
Weighted down by the gun
Waited down by the river for you to come

A best friend to your ear of true said I was guilty of sin
Said my being gone was the best thing for you
But the truth, it all comes through for me and my kin
It wasn't the best thing for me but was the best for him

Weighted down by decision
Weighted down by the gun
Waited down by the river for you to come

Weighted down by possessions
Weighted down by the gun
Waited down by the river for you to come

While I sat there wondering, you thought that eyes were hid
And I had the honor of watching everything you did
So now I come with words of pain to bring you news of life
If you can't find your woman, don't take another's wife

Waiting down by possessions
Waiting down with a gun
Waiting down by the river for you to come

Skip Spence.

It's some relief
to find the possible in store;
beyond belief,
in overtime, I'm overboard...
uncharted waters, full fathom five,
the future's rising, it's just arrived.

It's not the same
as I imagined it would be
but there's no blame
if every life's imaginary.

And if I get quite what I deserve
that'll end the sentence, the time I've served
a full stop to the sentence...

When it's all done you willed the person you've become
in serious fun it's as you were that you become
and so it's done.

I saw the future
or so I said...
How strange they seem,
the lives I've never led,
thinking ahead.

I'm ready to come home...

So head on,
headlong,
headstrong.

I'm ready to go...

Beaucoup de mes amis sont venus des nuages
Avec soleil et pluie comme simples bagages
Ils ont fait la saison des amitiés sincères
La plus belle saison des quatre de la terre

Ils ont cette douceur des plus beaux paysages
Et la fidélité des oiseaux de passage
Dans leur coeur est gravée une infinie tendresse
Mais parfois dans leurs yeux se glisse la tristesse

Alors, ils viennent se chauffer chez moi
Et toi aussi tu viendras..

When the king of twilight shows me
I will take ten steps to see
Forty leaves I pay to freedom
For a chance to be free
For a chance to be free
"All the iron turned to rust;
All the proud men turned to dust
And so all things, time will mend
So this song will end"

I want you to know
He's not coming back
Look into my mouth
I'm not coming back

So knives out
Cut him up
Squash his head
Put him in the pot

^ That was just the aperitif....these are my favourite lyrics of the last year or so

"Remember a time when you thought that you mattered,
Believed in the school song, die for your country - a country that cared for you
All in it together?
If it ever was more than a lie or some naive romantic notion
Well, it's all shattered now
It's all shattered now

Why is nothing ever true?
Why is nothing ever true?
Why is nothing ever true?
Why is nothing ever true?

Well do you remember a time when you thought you belonged to something more than you?
A country that cared for you
A national anthem you could sing without feeling used or ashamed
You poor sods have only yourselves to blame
On your knees, peasant
You're living for the New King
You're living for the New King
You're living for the New King"

....call me an old cynic, but I think Mr Hogarth has our country's current plight summed up perfectly here!
"...and the man in the mirror has sad eyes."

There coming over Charaton Bridge
Look do you see the man who is poor
but rich.

What do you wish; and where do you go;
who are you; where are you from:
Will you tell me your name?
Rest awhile; call me your friend.
Please stay with me I'd like to help.

"All the iron turned to rust;
All the proud men turned to dust
And so all things, time will mend
So this song will end"

Are you such a dreamer,
To put the world to rights?
I'll stay home forever,
Where two and two always makes a five

I'll lay down the tracks,
Sandbag and hide,
January has April showers,
And two and two always makes a five

It's the Devil's way now,
There is no way out,
You can scream and you can shout,
It is too late now...

A jigsaw falling into place
So there is nothing to explain
You eye each other as you pass
She looks back and you look back
Not just once
And not just twice
Wish away your nightmare
Wish away the nightmare
You got the light you can feel it on your back
You got the light you can feel it on your back

Your Jigsaw falling into place.

''Spotcheck Billy got down on his hands and knees
He said "Hey mama, hey let me check your oil all right?"
She said "No, no honey, not tonight.
Come back Monday, come back Tuesday, and then I might"

I said Juanita, my sweet Jaunita, what are you up to?
My Juanita
I said Jaunita, my sweet chiquita, what are you up to?
My Juanita

Don't want nobody who won't dive for dimes
Don't want no speedballs 'cause I might die trying
Throw me a line, throw me a line
'Cause there's a fat man in the bathtub with the blues
I hear you moan, I hear you moan, I hear you moan

Billy got so sad, dejected, put on his hat and start to run
Runnin' down the street yelling at the top of his lungs
"All I want in this life of mine is some good clean fun"
"All I want in this life and time is some hit and run"

I said Juanita, my sweet Jaunita, what are you up to?
My Jaunita
I said Jaunita, my sweet chiquita, what are you up to?
My Juanita

Put my money in your meter baby so it won't run down
But you caught me in the squeeze play on the cheesy side of town
Throw me a dime, throw me a line
'Cause there's a fat man in the bathtub with the blues
I hear you moan, I hear you moan, I hear you moan ''
'Arse, Feck, Drink. Girls..' Father Jack Hackett, Craggy Island.
