‘Spirogyra’ Song Lyrics

Pt 1 'Burn The Bridges' & 'St Radigund's'

 

“I’m including here the final version of all the lyrics for the ‘Spirogyra’ albums. Lyrics on some of the cd inserts may differ slightly from these – but that is because of mistakes, or because I have another preferred version that may not actually have been sung on the record. But for all future recordings of these songs these are the final versions I would want used and approved by me most recently”. (Martin April 2005)  (PS I haven’t corrected punctuation marks properly yet!)

All songs are words and music by Martin Cockerham except those marked with a *, in which case the writer is named.

 

Burn The Bridges

Turn Again Lane

 

Turn again Lane, go back you,  know she l-l-loved you

Go back, that girl’s in love with you

Turn again Lane, go back you,  know that you’re gonna need her

Go back go let her sun shine through

You know that girls in  love with you

You know that girls in love with

girls in  love with, girls in  love with you

 

Turn again lane go back you,  know that you’re gonna need her

Go back go let her sun shine through

You know that girl’s in love with you

You know that girls in love with

girls in  love with, girls in  love with you

 

Want you to say that you’ll give her all your love

And so much more, and so much more

Love in a way that a young man only can

With so much more and so much more and so much more

 

Turn again lane you twit you, don’t know what you missed you

Sure ought to get yourself a brain

Turn again lane, Turn again Lane, Turn Again lane

 

Knowing the way that she moves her sweater

Down in the deep sea south

She’s the kind of girl that’s got a lot to recommend her

She aint no common mouth

 

I want you to say that you’ll give her all your love

And so much more and so much more

Love in a way that a young man only can

With so much more and so much more and so much more

 

Out here there’s a lot that’s unexplored

My advice to you is go back home

 

“And if you are new here I must ask you sir

Do you happen to carry a gun

I discovered when young to trust no-one

And to learn from mistakes I had made

These are days of deceit and suspicion sir

You must not take offence if I say

That you look like a queer or a harbourer

Of ladies of latter decay

This part of the world is a dark one son

We live by the laws we have made

Though it’s true we may harm in mistake sometimes

We thank God for the lives we have saved

We thank God for the lives we have saved

So if you are new here I must ask you sir

Will you kindly go back where you came

I discovered when young to trust no-one

And to learn from mistakes I had made

And to learn from mistakes I had made”

 

Bring Me Back

 

The day glow, comes in your room

Those who remain will never feel the same

These feelings,  I have inside me

Try to deny me

I’m gonna wait on the years

 

Hearken to her song of life

Calling calling

Bring me back, I need you now

Help me, help me

Let me know I’m not alone

I love you

 

Tomorrow, who knows may find me?

Who knows the rolling wheel

The twist of fate on the line?

 

Hearken to her song of life

Calling, calling

Bring me back, I need you now

Help me, help me

Let me know I’m not alone

I love you

 

 

She’s The One  (I Got A Feeling)

 

I got a feeling

love’s gonna take me

love’s gonna make me, or break me in two

See in the distance

she’s started moving

I’ve started drooling

She’s gotta gotta gotta be

I can see what she’s doing to me

 

I’m hoping she comes today

Hoping she comes today

Now I know that, now I know that

now I know that, She’s the One

Now I know that, now I know that

now I know that, She’s the One

She’s the one, She’s the one

 

I gotta notion

Time now for action

she’s a distraction

I gotta make a move that’ll pay

or I’ll wind up regretting this day

 

I’m hoping she comes today

Hoping she comes today

Now I know that, now I know that

now I know that, She’s the One

 

I gotta feeling

love’s gonna take me

love’s gonna make me, or break me in two

I’m hoping she comes today

hoping she comes today

Now I know that, now I know that

now I know that, She’s the One

 

 

 

Nothing To Hide

 

Seeing as how

Darkness has changed to bright

You’ve nothing to hide

Why don’t you step into the light

No-one wants to deceive you or lead you

That’s alright

 

You’re rivals appear

The enemy is drawing near

And shadows of fear

Have brought out a rash on your ear

Seems they want your blood for their culture

Though it aint clear

 

Getta hold of the tow rope boy

You aint got an hour left to live Oh

Getta hold of yourself now boy

You aint got a reason to give for life

 

And me and John,

we thought we’d discovered a way

to tear down the walls

to hear all the people say

No-one wants to deceive you or lead you

That’s OK, that’s Ok, that’s all

 

Getta hold of the tow rope boy

You aint got an hour left to live Oh

Getta hold of yourself now boy

You aint got a reason to give for life

That’s alright, that’s alright, that’s alright

 

Where There’s A Will There’s A Way

 

Where there’s a will there’s a way

Where there’s a will there’s a way

There’s a way, there’s always a way

For where there’s a will there’s a way

Where there’s a road there’s a wheel

Where there’s a road there’s a wheel

There’s a wheel, there’s always a wheel

For where there’s a will there’s a way

 

Carving a valley, building a chalet by

Rivers and mountains, lacking in certainty

Trying to get happy

Trying to get part of the

Innermost circle

No time to turn around now

 

Where there is water there’s a craft

Where there is water there’s a craft

There’s a craft, there’s always a craft

For where there’s a will there’s a way

Where there is air there’s a plane

Where there is air there’s a plane

There’s a plane, there’s always a plane

For where there’s a will there’s a way

 

Carving a valley, building a chalet by

Rivers and mountains, lacking in certainty

Trying to get happy

Trying to get part of the

Innermost circle

No time to turn around now

There’s a way

There’s a way

We’ve got a long way to go

 

I Gotta Woman

 

I gotta woman, oh I’m so happy

Man it’s my heyday, I got a lady

I gotta woman, wo-wo-wo-woman

I never thought that love could be this way

I never thought that you could come my way

I gotta woman, wo-wo-wo-woman

 

I used to walk in the shadow

I used to walk in the rain

I used to think that my mind was insane

But then you took away all the pain

 

If it’s a showdown, you’re feeling low down

Don’t think you’ll find your personal heaven

Look for a woman, wo-wo-wo-woman

 

Counting The Cars

 

I’m counting the number of cars

Rolling into my life

Broken by alibis

Running from all those lies

Watching a number of dreams

Flowing away from me

Bum lifts from heavy loads

Burn wheels on southern roads

 

Feel the distance that I put between

Me and my childhood

Hang on to what remains

Leave trails of broken chains

High tail for Spanish Mains

 

Feeling I’m lost in my way

Too proud to lift my eyes and say

Life’s not the same as I

Thought that it might have been

 

Heard a lot of places such as these

I remember stories, pirates, the seas, the breeze

Bum lifts from heavy loads

Burn wheels on southern roads

 

We’re Going Over

 

Leicester Square Lady

You’ve had your heyday – blow!

Down in the distance, there’s a resistance – know!

You cannot see me, you cannot be me – so – go!

Over the valley coming a sudden snow

Shatter the evening, flowing the dream I owe

No point in lying, might as well say we’re through, we’re through

 

We’re going over, we’re going over, we’re going over

 

Leicester Square Lady

You’ve had your heyday – blow!

Down in the distance, there’s a resistance – know!

You cannot see me, you cannot be me – so – go!

 

We’re going Over, we’re going over

 

But you have seen where words have been

And though you’ve heard the wise men cry

It seems we’ve opened up the sky

 

Leicester Square Lady, you’ve had your heyday – go!

Often I think of all of the things we’d do

No point in lying, might as well say we’re through

We’re through

 

We’re going over, we’re going over, we’re going over

 

We are fighting a losing battle

No one is winning

No-one’s beginning

We are on the doorway of knowledge

Have we the wisdom, have we the wisdom?

We are looking for something that’s missing

Dark all around us

Darkness surrounding

We are fighting a losing battle

No one is winning

No-one’s beginning

We

 

Come out of the sky little mama

And let me see you smile

The sun is all around

The sun is all around

Come out of the sky little angel

And let me see you be

You are the one for me

You are the one for me

 

Mackerels & Fishes

 

Mackerels and fishes are swimming away

Squirrels are saving the fruits of decay

Green leaves are dying and turning to brown

Apples are falling to the ground

Winter’s creeping just round the corner

 

Nice Mrs Brockle is cleaning the grate

She’s looking worried, Tom is late

The rain on the window is pattering loud

Outside the wind begins to howl

Winter’s creeping just round the corner

Just round the corner

 

So darling good luck in

the winter that is coming upon us now

And in the years ahead

 

Defender Of The Faith

 

Bonnie Prince Charlie, our liege

We owe allegiance

Defender of the Faith

Pipers are calling

Onto the field of battle

Meet the redcoat foe

 

Our cause is just

To seek the crown

Who’ll stand between our rightful heir

By the grace of God

We stand or fall

Across the land we’ll meet the call

 

I’m a man with no future

With no past and no time

And I live for the war,

Lord I live for the war

I won’t be back no more

 

Bonnie Prince Charlie

Our liege we owe allegiance

Defender of the faith

Pipers are calling

Onto the field of battle

Meet the redcoat foe

 

Our cause is just

To seek the crown

Who’ll stand between our rightful heir

By the grace of God

We stand or fall

Across the land we’ll meet the call

 

I’m a man with no future

With no past and no time

And I live for the war,

Lord I live for the war

I won’t be back no more

 

 

Hey Lady

 

Hey lady, where you been so long?

Hey lady, where you don’t belong

The sun is in the sky

The tears are in your eye

And I see you, and you see me

 

Hey lady, what did I do wrong?

Hey maybe, did I try too strong?

You check your mate in fifteen moves

But you’re the one whose gonna lose

Cause I know you, and you know me

Come home

 

Hey lady, won’t you please confess

Hey lady, give me your address

The sun is in the sky

The tears are in your eye

And I see you and you see me

And I see you

Come home

 

Sing It Simple (Razzmatazz)

 

You lost your sense of rhythm

you said good-bye to the song

so long, so long.

You lost your sense of beauty

you said goodbye to the light

hello night – come on!

 

Shedoobeedoob – no melody

Shedoobeedoob – no rhythm

Shedoobeedoob – no music at all

 

And Sing it simple

And Sing it sad

And Sing it gentle

And Sing it glad

 

Shedoobeedoob – no melody

Shedoobeedoob – no rhythm

Shedoobeedoob – no music at all

 

You lost your sense of rhythm

you said good-bye to the song

so long, so long.

You lost your sense of beauty

you said goodbye to the light

hello night – come on!

 

And Sing it simple

And Sing it sad

And Sing it gentle

And Sing it glad

 

The Forest Of Dean

 

In The Forest of Dean

I first fell in love

And she showed me more than I’ve

ever seen, in the Forest of Dean

In The Valley of Wye

Looking up at Symond’s Yat

We first noticed the sky

Wondering, in the Valley of Wye

 

And every place I’ve ever been

Harbours her memories

And every face I’ve ever seen

Harbours her memories

 

In the Hills of Breconshire

We talked about our lives

As we walked the aged stone

Smiling, in the southern part of Wales

 

And every place I’ve ever been

Harbours her memories

And every face I’ve ever seen

Harbours her memories

 

But it’s OK you do not have to care

OK we’re really nearly there

Surround yourself with flowers dear

Forget about the hours dear

It’s OK today

 

A Northern Lament (Traveling)

 

Let me take you traveling

Let me take you riding along

On a steam train, it’s none stop to Manchester

Mighty station Victoria

The grey stone is standing so tall

As the old men, the railway men, locked in the past

Did you see that caravan? she said as we picked up some speed

Do people live there, or is it left by from the war?

Yes I said softly, but the flowers are all gone

His son must have moved south

It seems that he is now long gone

Look at that mine, so empty so bare

I think it’s a closure, the new gas is cheaper by far

And what of the men now that their jobs are not there

I cannot say Jenny but their ghost is haunting the air

 

Jenny I do not feel happy at all

The heart is not here, something is gone

It seems as to be that the soul of the north

Is floating away in the air

 

On the canal did you see those factories there

They once made an Empire, but now people buy from elsewhere

And as for the grey stone, the dark stone, the black stone

Once it was strong, but now it rolls over and over

 

She rested her head on my shoulder and started to sleep

As I gazed from the window out into the day

Jenny I do not feel happy at all

The heart is not here, something is gone

It seems as to be that the soul of the north

Is floating away in the air

 

Jerusalem

 

Days at ease with no telephone

Uncle Moustache on the coffee machine

I found a way into Jerusalem

I found a way into Jerusalem

 

Never been religious

Never been that way at all

But man you look beyond the city wall

I found a way into Jerusalem

I found a way into Jerusalem

 

 

I walked with Juicy to the Old Bazaar

Through the back streets

To the Mosque of Saint Omar

I found a way into Jerusalem

I found a way into Jerusalem

I found a way into Jerusalem

 

Heard a lot about the men who died

Now I understand the reason why they cried

I found a way into Jerusalem

I found a way into Jerusalem

I found a way into Jerusalem

I found a way into Jerusalem

 

 

Joe Somewhere (I Hear You’re Going Somewhere)

 

When I was a young man

they said you know a young man

should always keep his head out of the clouds

And head for sunny weather

to keep himself together

in case forever complicates his brain

I hear you’re really going somewhere Joe

I hear you’re really going somewhere Joe

 

And when I was a good man

so completely should man

there were no mistakes I could have made

Oh but fate she’s evil

oh she’s really evil

dealing double trouble, no-one’s safe

I hear you’re really going somewhere Joe

I hear you’re really going somewhere Joe

 

I haven’t got the luck it takes

You’ve got me wrong

it’s your mistake

So if when you’re coming down

You see in the late night film queue

Someone who looks like me – you’re wrong!

 

Though we all move on sir

Reasons there are none sir

I suppose that’s how it’s meant to be

Hey, nothing’s what it seems from far away

I hear you’re really going somewhere Joe

I hear you’re really going somewhere Joe

I hear you’re really going somewhere Joe

 

 

Burn The Bridges

 

Do not look on back

For the things we lack

Searching for a future in old memories

Looking for our destiny in histories

Burn The Bridges

Burn The Bridges

 

Those who have control

Never where you are

There’s such a lot of wisdom

That is stuck in books

But it’s economist and physicists

Who cook the books

Burn the Bridges

Burn the Bridges

 

Trust in facts that stay

That can’t be washed away

Like the light of day

Truth will always stay

Burn the Bridges

Burn the Bridges

 

Laughter is where you are

It is something that is more

Wisdom is where we’ll go

It is something that is sure

There is nothing that is pure

Who am I?

 

And every recipe you’ll ever see

Will say inside

A pinch of salt sir

I n this age of gross deception

Cynics rule

They’re on the surface

Truth will conquer

Love will surely win.

 

 

St Radigund’s

 

The Future Won’t Be Long

 

Do you mind a question? Please sir stay

What was life like in the olden days?

Long ago, ago, ago, ago before the war

 

“Contractors to Her Majesty’s Government we were

Dealers in honest trade, I

There were some mighty queer folk about

But most were honest workers and knew their place

I was a skilled craftsman, Mark You

The work was hard and the hours they were long

Ah , but there was a  maiden

And her name was Marjorie

 

Long black hair she had like a gypsy

And the prettiest smile I’ve ever seen

And I called her an angel

And I was right, she was

 

Then there was the war

The war”

 

Forging a pathway for freedom

Using resources we need them

Though our foes are human beings

We stand between them

And the life we do condone

 

Shipped out to Belgium to stop them

Plastered and shelled them

But lost ground

Bombs and rockets, V2’s over London city

And the world at their command

 

And back in Yeadon, Marjorie

Stood beneath a factory

I was assured she felt no pain

 

Withdrawn from Dunkirk in cruisers

Who cares says I, we’re all losers

No-one wins – both sides the victims of our nature

May the future learn

 

Back in Yeadon Marjorie

Died beneath the factory

A Messerschmitt her destiny

 

You who think the rest are wrong

And stand so tall and feel so strong

Please be sure that you yourselves are not mistaken

For the future won’t be long

 

Island

 

If you’re gonna be a mountain

Let me see you thrust your snows

In innocence through clouds of doubt

That try to keep your reason out

In these times of glaciated slaughter

 

If you’re gonna be a legend

Let it be a tale whose telling

Is a state of mind that’s dwelling

Far beyond the words dark capture

To fill the heart alone with rapture

In these days of circles

 

If your gonna be an island

I will be a sailing ship

Who like a speck at total distance

Looms beyond your headland breakers

Till the oceans mighty plunder

Bids me seek the gentler shelter

Of your inland waters

 

Have you never seen beyond the moon?

Don’t you know that we will be there soon?

Have you no eyes to see

That you are only me and we are only

Travellers upon a sea of time

Trying very hard to make it rhyme

 

 

Magical Mary

 

Magical Mary

She looks like a fairy

And waves her wand around

Points at an earthman and says Hallelujah

Just look at what I’ve found

At what I’ve found

 

Magical Mary

She shivers her timbers

And lays you on the ground

Strikes up a rhythm in fifty two tempo

And says hey man your found

Hey man you’re found

 

I gotta come with you

I gotta come with you

Got got to, got got to

I gotta come

 

Madrigal Mistress has seventy sisters

And every one’s the same

They come with assistance

To break your resistance

And man your brained

You’re like to wind up maimed

 

I gotta come with you

I gotta come with you

Got got to, got got to

I gotta come

 

Don’t ask me no questions

Don’t ask me no questions

I got to, got got to

I gotta come

 

Always the same, I don’t know how you do it

Just a game, no matter how you view it

Always the same

You’re gonna be alone, you’re gonna need someone

You’re gonna find it hard to get yourself a man

Whose gonna take your hand, or even understand

Just what you’re into.

 

Mr Brown, he thought he’d found salvation

Using words to try to calm the nation

What a shame

He didn’t have a notion how to use the lotion

Gotta spread it thin to give each one a portion

Gotta make it clear they’re gonna get a portion

So’s they’re happy

 

Always the same, you never seem to falter

Make a slip, you’ll have me at the altar

Never mind, it doesn’t matter much

Because you’ve got the touch

You’ve really got it made

You’re gonna make the grade

And you can try your hand

Another time around

That’s if you want to

 

Captains Log

 

Look at the ocean go rolling by slowly

We’re on the waves and it’s ever so lonely

How very strange that I think that there’s something wrong

 

Captain’s Log, the first of June

Have run into a bad monsoon

I’m 54, I’ve sailed before

This is not the sea, it’s war

 

Grab the rigging, man the sail

Secure the hatches start to bail

I do not think we will survive

I do not think we will survive

 

Cloud in the distance appeared like a mushroom

Then came the heat and the rage of the ocean

We’re going down and I don’t think I’d rather stay

 

Captain’s Log, the first of June

Have run into a bad monsoon

I’m 54, I’ve sailed before

This is not the sea, it’s war

 

And to those who caused the pain

I only hope you will remain

I’m going down with what was good

I wouldn’t stay if I could

 

Home In The World

 

Though I may whisper words

You don’t understand, understand

Though I’m in need of help

You can’t lend a hand, lend a hand

 

To be at home in the world

To be at home in the world

 

Though I may come and go

It is not from you that I flow

Wild though the world may be

It’s inside of me, inside of me

 

To be at home in the world

To be at home in the world

 

This is all that a man can need

Cannot you see

This is all that a man can need

Cannot you see

 

Though I may act unkind

I don’t mean to be, honestly

It’s just that it’s hard to see

The reality, reality

 

To be at home in the world

To be at home in the world

 

This is all that a man can need

Cannot you see

This is all that a man can need

Cannot you see

 

Don’t ask me to move away

I will never go

Don’t ask me to hide away

I will never leave

 

Cogwheels, Crutches & Cyanide

 

Holy John

Give me food

Tonight I am so hungry

Tonight my eyes are searching

For a way

 

Holy John

Give me shelter

Tonight I am so weary

Tonight my eyes are open wide

 

Well the first man was a juggler

And his skill was very great

But he said that he was leaving

He said he couldn’t wait

 

And the second came with jewels

That flickered on his hand

As he spoke about tomorrow

As if it were another land

 

But a lady caught between them

Said she should be free

But they just looked bewildered

And said yes, so should we

 

How on earth, yelled the author

Does the tale makes it’s sense

It’s alive with the truth,

But we must have the proof

How can we open the door

 

Well the next man had religion

It made him very proud

He said he’d found his inner bliss

He said it very loud

 

But a group of men surpassed him

With science skills and speed

They hurled down his conceptions

And dug up all his weeds

 

The lady she looked worried

She asked if this was wise

“Of course it is it’s logic

Brains and enterprise

 

How on earth, yelled the author

Does the tale makes it’s sense

It’s alive with the truth,

But we must have the proof

How can we open the door

 

Well the last man had no number

And didn’t say a word

He didn’t even answer them

When they said he was absurd

 

They made him sign a treaty

To give up all he owned

And searched his pockets anxiously

To see if he had gold

 

The lady was enchanted

And said they ought to see

So they charged her with subversion

And made her watch TV

 

I’m a man with no future

With no past and no time

And I live for the war

Lord I live for the war

I won’t be back no more

 

We are fighting a losing battle

No-one is winning

No-one’s beginning

 

We are looking for something that’s missing

Dark all around us

Darkness surrounding

 

We are on the doorway of knowledge

Have we the wisdom?

Have we the wisdom?

 

We are fighting a losing battle

No-one is winning

No-one’s beginning

 

Come over the hill little mama

And let me see you smile

You are the one for me

You are the one for me

 

Come out of the sky little angel

And let me see you be

You are the one for me

You are the one for me

 

Time Will Tell * (Julian Cusack)

 

If you don’t like lying in the sun

 you might as well not be here

What’s the point of always working

Shut your eyes and let the colours come

And block out all the black and white

And dirty grey and damp and dust

And dry rot in the roof

 

On the beach we lit a fire

A Frenchman gave us wine and whiskey

Out to sea the British navy

Keeps an eye on foreign shipping

To keep us safe from war

The hope of which is all

That keeps our soldiers sleeping through the night

 

If you don’t like lying in the sun

You might as well not be here

Let the sea come up and cover you

You will feel a new dimension

Like sleeping on a featherbed and dreaming of

a world in which you do not have to work

 

You suffer, you cry

You labour, you die

Things will change, Time Will Tell

Things will change, Time Will Tell

 

In the courtyard children play

In their lives, the sun is shining through

They’ll all be socialists, atheists

They’ll all be, scientists, humanists

Egalitarian, vegetarian, internationalists

 

They’ll all be mystics, they’ll all be gods

They’ll all be famous, they’ll all be sods

Things will change, Time Will Tell

Things will change, Time Will Tell

For what you want to be, you must try to be

You will all be free.

 

We Were A Happy Crew

 

Here on our road are gathered we

To see our lives unfolding

Though others stay

We pass away

Just as the tide goes rolling

 

This is a time of change

A parting of the ways

Though others stay

We pass away

Just as the tide goes rolling

 

And I’ll remember you

Beyond these hopes and these fears

That account for the years

Like the wind in the reeds I will miss you

 

And I will think of you

When the past comes along

To remind me what’s gone

Like the wind in the reeds I will miss you

 

Can we go back and start again?

Can we go back and start again

Can we begin where we came in

Came in

 

Some travellers passed

as we stopped for a moment in peace

With blood on their fingers

They spoke of a cloud in the East

 

And we were a happy crew, me and you

We were a happy crew, me and you

 

Speaking with words

we were sure that the truth had been banned

We’d buried the martyrs

and walked off to work on the land

 

And we were a happy crew, me and you

We were a happy crew, you and me

 

Some riders appeared from the sun

As it fell with a blaze

They passed like the wind

And were lost in the dust to the East

 

And we were a happy crew, me and you

We were a happy crew, you and me

 

Love Is A Funny Thing

 

I tried so hard

To keep our love alive

To keep you by my side

But the winter and my pride

Dissolved into the Spring

 

Oh love is a very funny thing

I’m sure you know

And though you lose someone

you keep your soul

 

The fresh unfaded green

Makes my heart to dream

And the April rain

Washes me clean again

Of the sorrows that held me down

 

Oh love is a very funny thing

It lingers on

And a part of me is always she

 

love is a very funny thing

It lingers on

And a part of me is always she

 

The Duke Of Beaufort

 

The Duke of Beaufort

Is not at home today

He’s very tired

He thought he’d go away

You wait for him,

Your eyes are on the door

You know no other way

 

The Duke of Beaufort

Is very kind to cats

Keeps them in his cellar

To help him catch his rats

He’s very noble

And his lineage is pure

But you, you’re a whore

 

The Duke of Splendour

Just wasn’t much amused

And nor were you

You knew you’d been abused

If you’d had help

You might have buggered up his fuse

But alone, you’re too confused

 

“He picked me up, I was on the street

He made it clear he would use me

My parents died, I was three years old

I had to make a living”

Close your eyes, close your eyes

 

“In a lot of ways, I’m close to him

Though he may seem to ignore it

I’m sure he cares,

At least, I think he does

It’s just he’s very busy”

Close your eyes, close your eyes

Here’s today says the ‘Telegraph’

It’s the world, it’s the world!

Gone away on a phonograph

Riding high, riding high

 

There’s a way says the Cenotaph

You will find, you will find

Gone in search of an Epitaph

Running wild, running wild

 

You saw them coming forward

Asking you to be kind

You couldn’t face their council

They were men full of greed

In your position nothing’s sacred

You have only the wine

 

You stand alone

But not alone in your loneliness

And yet there must be more

I can’t believe that all has been in vain

 

And if there is it’s

Be sure of friendship

As the hours grow long

Rest assured that this phase is passing

Give yourself a chance
