Ronny Lyrics
Ronny there sucks the sun up
Fires the sugar-gun
Yeah, his random needs are something
Understand: He is not as we are
Made of salt, in the shape of birds, how he shimmers
There he sits by the waterline
Cement and jewels and his crimson robes of splendor
Days have passed without incident
Down the pyramids there is nothing else to see

And you know what they say: Nothing real's ever lost
Throw thing away every night hereafter...

Coiling up in his dressing gown
With his broken teeth and the dirty water in the kitchen
What it is: He is paralyzed
He is sanctified by the god of nails and splinters,
Certainly knows his way around at this murder scene
(Hid the bloody shovels in the outhouse)
Chastity and insomnia are a lousy mix
His nights are long

And you know what they say: Nothing real's ever lost
Throw the thing away every night hereafter

And so we say farewell
He's doing fine now
He's a piece of work
What else can you say now?
The water's deep
The water's blue and his young wife is smiling
The sun is warm
His crimes are paid for
(Or you would think so)

Sea Theory Lyrics
Did you ever get an invitation?
A little window to another life?
Got so many tales
A lot of ales and rotten rails
Terrible discussions with the wife
Clawing at the arse-end of the evening
Watch me as I play their rotten game
I get my cods out by the dustbin of the gods
Stand there till the sun comes out again

I got a sea theory, gonna bore my friends
Sea theory, still pushing it
Sea theory, gonna act it out
Sea theory, haven't tested it

Spend a long time frowning at the sandwich
Wearily I bring it into play
Mona's bright: makes that shit looks so every night
Everything's enormous once again
Washed up with the seaweed and syringes
Tide comes in and then goes out again
It's so very foul and unbelievable banal
Underneath the boardwalk in the rain

I got a sea theory, gonna blow your mind
Sea theory, can't defend it
Sea theory, it's a piece of work
Sea theory, gonna make your teeth ache

Sea theory in the disco
One of many theories of the sea
Everybody's songs are neverending till they're gone
Carve a little pleasure out of me
Gonna get my dinner from the chip shop
Now I have to eat it on the hoof
Everybody sighs and everybody multiplies
No one cares too much about the truth

Got a sea theory, it's a pack of lies

Waterbaby Lyrics
He prays for understanding
He's on a fucking mission
Hasn't got a field to land in
Hasn't got a pot to piss in

Greedy for some huge connection
Not gonna live forever
Never tell him he can't have it
Now he wants it more than ever

Stacked urges, novel vices
Night of the soul, etcetera
These dubious devices
Are now his raison d'etre

I watch him by the river
He's like a reed in Autumn
Not ready to deliver
Not ready yet for the post-mortem

My little waterbaby
Stands in a field of ruins, says:
"When do we fly again?"
No word for what he's doing
My hungry little savage
Bright as a burning building
Turns on himself again
Nothing he loves is worth pursuing

Better untried than found defective
Better unhinged than unselective
Better messed up than compromised
Better ignored than not emphasized
Better lie low than get infected
Better rot down than be dissected
Better bound up than paralyzed
Better the devil you recognize

Better untried than found defective
Better unhinged than unselective
Better messed up than compromised
Better ignored than not emphasized
Better lie low than get infected
Better rot down than be dissected
Better bound up than paralyzed
Better the devil you recognize

Creature of wind and weather
Caged in a cheap museum
Dust coats the eagle's feathers
It'll break your heart to see them

He has the right to bear it
And still he fears to show it
What kind of eye to see it
What kind of heart to know it?

My little waterbaby
Stands in a field of ruins, says:
"When do we fly again?"
No word for what he's doing
My howling little monster
Bright as a burning building
Turns on himself again
Nothing he loves is worth pursuing

The Strongest Wind That Blows Lyrics
I start to know the strongest wind that blows
The thing that until now I only read about
New structure eating up the old
The process we all have this nameless dread about

Cold shoals
Their bloodless arms enfold
The earthen engines moan
Corruption, the feast out in the cold
Everybody leaves this dance alone

Lashed up, clinging to a thing
The nights are drawing in, that there's no doubt about
Wild rapture: the old familiar code
This brute reflex is nothing much to shout about

Pegged out, pulling down the stone
Botched, brave and alone
Fierce lustre blistering the soul
Mourning for those I will never know

Stake out, cops inside a van
To test a theory that the world is credible
My brains boiling in a pan
Tests have shown they prove to be inedible

Own up
The terrifying trees
Will shake the leaves around
Dumbstruck
Starts at every sound
Everybody needs somebody now

Load The Boat Lyrics
Load the boat up
Load the boat up
Load the boat up
Load the boat up

Isn't there anyone not amazed
That there's still fish to fry
Hats to try
And not everybody's crazed

In order to ratchet up this and that
You got a plot to write every night
Did they never tell you that?
You gotta keep on rowing
You gotta feast on crumbs
But when the lights are glowing
And the landfall comes

You gotta load the boat up
You gotta load the boat up
You gotta load the boat up
You gotta load the boat up

Not that there's anything much to blame
Still, you must wonder why
Every time
The dead all look the same
We do a lot of things
All the time
We can be pragmatists, animists,
Something along those lines

You put the nose to windward
You gotta inch it round
You gotta hope for nothing
But if it stops pissing down

You gotta load the boat up
You gotta load the boat up
You gotta load the boat up
You gotta load the boat up

Back there in '85, that whole scene
They said there were rainy days on the way
Just thought they were being mean

You have a right to your attitude
Still you just have to say
That old way
Was effective if fairly crude

You gotta try and not swallow
You gotta not inhale
You gotta keep on going
And if the crop don't fail

You gotta load the boat up
You gotta load the boat up
You gotta load the boat up
You gotta load the boat up

You gotta load the boat up
You gotta load the boat up
You gotta load the boat up
You gotta load the boat up

You gotta watch for shallows
You gotta not look down
You're chasing death already
Every day is gravy now

You gotta load the boat up
You gotta load the boat up
You gotta load the boat up
You gotta load the boat up

[repeat to fade out]

Troublemeat Lyrics
It's a wild thing, a brittle thing
Some know it as the instrument of yearning
It knows you will capitulate
You're beeswax and the forest fires are burning
You can have a lot mates
Break a lot of plates
Make it to the end in one piece but it's still a mystery
It's not some mighty vision
It's more a dirty polaroid of history
This thing has claws and poison spores
This is a dirty bomb that blows off all the doors
It's what they call the troublemeat
The troublemeat

It's a no-large-potato-thing
But all your good sense cannot hold a candle
It's another pissing contest
'Tween the Devil and the nice guy in the sandals
You wanna say it's on the blink, put it in the sink
Take it to the landfill then go home and take a shower
It leaves its greasy tidemark
In a place your cleaning products cannot scour
This bitch got wheels
It mass appeals
And you will surely not remember how it feels
That's why they it's called the troublemeat
The troublemeat

It's an unprepossessive thing
A livid boil upon the arse of reason
It fucks with me perpetually
The filthy little monkey in its season
You can file away your teeth
Get up on the heath
Howling in the pouring rain and find out who will listen
I don't like to admit it
I sometimes think I live just for this frission
It licks its lips, swivels its hips
You think it's elegant but it's as cheap as chips
This lousy thing called troublemeat
The troublemeat

Reason With The Beast Lyrics
Don't wanna do this but he gets you there
(Gotta reason with the beast)
He makes a rats nest from your pretty hair
(Gotta reason with the beast)
Try to deny him but he stands his ground
He's a pitbull that you can't impound
Comes the monster in his season
And he won't calm down
(You got to reason with the beast)
Gotta reason with the beast

He makes you listen to his shriveled mind
(Gotta reason with the beast)
His reason's flaw is often hard to find
(Gotta reason with the beast)
The agapanthus wreathed around his brow
His yellow teeth gnaw into all your vows
He rips the buttons from your clean white blouse
(Just have to reason with the beast)
Gotta reason with the beast

Bonehead Lyrics
My father's father was
the wisest man I ever knew,
60 years of education
7 years of school.
Farming kept his body strong,
at night, the only books he owned
kept his mind sharp as a tack,
The Family Bible and The Farmer's Almanac.

When to plant,
when to harvest,
how you reep just what you sow.
When to look for rain and who to turn to when it don't.
There was a plan for early frost
salvation for the lost,
words to live and die by, front to back,
The Family Bible and The Farmer's Almanac.

One came from his mother,
handed down the day she died.
The co-op sent the other
every year at Christmastime.
He knew the seasons by the day,
knew Paul and Peter by first name;
He could answer any question he was asked
with The Family Bible and The Farmer's Almanac.

When to plant,
when to harvest,
how you reep just what you sow.
When to look for rain and who to turn to when it don't.
There was a plan for early frost
salvation for the lost,
words to live and die by, front to back,
The Family Bible and The Farmer's Almanac.

He knew the way to get
through this life to the next,
while other spoke of faith
he found it fast.
In The Family Bible and The Farmer's Almanac.
The Family Bible and The Farmer's Almanac.

Voiled Karletus Lyrics
The blight parade, that trite brigade
Were the vandals from the scandal in the motorcade
The industry, it's plain to see
Had to wangle all the angles for the press charade
The rest we see, interestingly
In the drizzle with a chisel and a pessary
The ones that stayed, the ones that strayed
All made a beeline for the felines in the company

I got Voiled Karletus! Voiled Karletus!
Voiled Karletus! Voiled Karletus!

The righteous goons, check out their runes
As they caper with a taper to some acid tunes
The actor boys, the tractor boys
The wizards and the lizards in the harvest moon
The savage toys the lord employs
Make 'em snivel as they swivel like an anglepoise
The bright dragoons, their cheap festoons
Apostles with the fossils and the scraping noise

They got Voiled Karletus! Voiled Karletus!
Voiled Karletus! Voiled Karletus!

It seems the crimes are always mine
I excoriate the horror but it feels divine
I like that scene in submarines
All the jackals in their shackles with the limpet mines
The lactic queen is so serene
See her nuzzle at the muzzle of an M16
She's fierce and fine, so many spines
She's got the hatchet and the ratchet
And the victor's spleen

She got Voiled Karletus! Voiled Karletus!
Voiled Karletus! Voiled Karletus!

The fat and dumb to this have come
An historic paregoric, now we all feel numb
The shifty deals that time reveals
Show a raked accumulation, wanna get me some
The slimy spiels, one sometimes feels
Are a nation's lubrication for its squeaky wheels
That upturned bum, those bony gums
Don't tussle with the muscle of the poison eels

Got Voiled Karletus! Voiled Karletus!
Voiled Karletus! Voiled Karletus!

Saul don't have it, just believe it
(Chimps in exile can't receive it)
Clench don't got it
Quite surprising, he bought all our merchandising
Delia has done the cooking
(No one ugly gets a look in)
Got two sizes, huge and man-size
Calvin Klein has bought the franchise

Saul don't have it, just believe it
(Chimps in exile can't receive it)
Clench don't got it
Quite surprising, he bought all our merchandising
Delia has done the cooking
(No one ugly gets a look in)
Got two sizes, huge and man-size
Calvin Klein has bought the franchise

Saul don't have it, just believe it
(Chimps in exile can't receive it)
Clench don't got it
Quite surprising, he bought all our merchandising
Delia has done the cooking
(No one ugly gets a look in)
Got two sizes, huge and man-size
Calvin Klein has bought the franchise
