Lyrics

Niagara

I’ve got holes in my hands,
But I’m scooping out water as fast as I can.
I’ve got stones in my shoes,
And if I’m gonna drown then I’m gonna take you.

No matter where I stick my oar
The water’s thick with mud,
We’re going nowhere.
No matter how hard I row
I’m always going backwards,
Never forwards at all.

I may as well be in a barrel headed for the falls.

I’ve got holes in my hands,
But I’m scooping out water as fast as I can.
I’ve got stones in my shoes,
And if I’m gonna drown then I’m gonna take you.

No matter which fork I choose,
If it’s left I’m gonna lose,
If it’s right I’m gonna lose.
No Matter how hard I row
I’m always going backwards,
Never forwards no.

I’ll cannonball straight off the edge of this waterfall.

Collars are for dogs

Lay me down.
Wet my brow.
Tie my hands unto the bed and draw a cross upon my head.
I’m possessed.

Is a prayer really the cure?

There’s something you should tell the priest:
This book doesn’t have a hold on me.
I just wish I could dream.
Is this poison, or spirits teasing me?
I just wish I could dream.
Is this poison?

Lay me down.
Wet my brow.
Tie my hands unto the bed and draw a cross upon my head.
I’m possessed.

Incidents And Happenings

This investigation takes me to a scene that I never wanted to see:
Bodies strewn across the set akin to Romeo and Juliet.
Behind the curtain the audience are ignorant
Of the incidents and happenings
Ill informed
and scoffing and grunting like pigs.
Howling like wolves.
Leering like lions on call.
Jeering and baying for blood,
Of which they’ll get more than their share.

Open the curtain,
Show them your profession.

A spec of blood on your shoe just as dry as the blood on the boards which you tread.
Look up and hope that it fell from the beams,
Or kneel down to tie your shoes instead?

Ill informed
And scoffing and grunting like pigs.

Moonlit Walks And Silver Bullets

This moon will be the end of me;
This transformation is taking its toll.
its pulsing undeneath my skin
and honestly i thought I was ok,
but I keep turning again and again.
You really done a number on me.
Your bite just scratched the surface,
then sunk deep into my veins
after you pulled your teeth away.

I’m saved. I’m saved.
No the clouds are just covering the rays.
I’m doomed. I’m doomed.

I can smell you from a mile away.

There’s a throbbing inside my head that only tears of the dying can quell,
And when the dying can smell their own fear
They’ve already lost a limb to the teeth in my grin.

I’ll cook you with the heat of my fowl breath.

A wolf is a wolf when raised by a wolf.

I can smell you from a mile away.

Check

Stop. Think it through.
Make your opponent think that he is smarter than you,
Whilst also making him think that you think you’re smarter than him,
and stronger and faster than him, when actually you are but you’ve got to convince him that you’re bluffing.
Next step: Reel him in.
You’ve got to get in right under his skin,
You’ve got to make him sweat,
You’ve got to chase his king.

It’s check breathe it in.

Step 3: his back is turned.
Honour is a gift that’s bought it’s not earned.
Hit him where you can, when you can,
If the opportunity arises abandon the plan and just plain cheat.
Last step: This is war
Give him the gift of a trojan horse
with a gravestone inside for each one of his pawns.

It’s check breathe it in.

You’ve got my queen but I’ve got your king.

Focus.
Breathe in.
It’s check.
Your move.

Take what you want just don’t take it from me.
