Lyrics

Does it all add up to nothing

Written By: James Grant

3.  Does it all add up to Nothing

Every tear that graced your eyes

Every prayer that fell into the skies

Each hello

Each goodbye

Does it all add up to Nothing

Every time your heart was crossed

Every little thing you lost

When you try to count the cost

Does it all add up to Nothing

Beseech the darkness

My love my love

Plead the paper stars that hang above

Maybe you will find a way tonight

Maybe love is just a sin of pride

 

A cardboard crown

A broken shoe

All the forces that abstracted you

Left someone I never knew

Does it all add up to Nothing

Does it all add up to Nothing

Beseech the darkness

My love my love

Plead the paper stars that hang above

Maybe you will find a way tonight

Maybe love is just a sin of pride

 

Maybe love is just a sin of pride

 

Who will raise their voice?

Written By: Donald Shaw

9. Who will raise their voice?

 

When the smoke clears

and the truth comes shining through.

I will watch the sparks fly

from deadlines overdue

make no mistake now

time will hunt them down

till the language of reason

runs them to (the) ground.

 

Who will raise their voice, as the cruel winds blow

and who will call a truce, and who can break our fall

whisper words of reason to those without a song

who will raise their voice, and carry us along.

 

Those images are everywhere, like sand in your hair

from the beaches of childhood they slip through my fingers they’re

like years of our lives, tormenting and cruel

will the world look that way again, silent and true?

 

So when the smoke clears

and the truth comes shining through

those prophecies they made

will crumble in two, like a dark horse riding, graceful through the night

you’re the language of reason

the language of life.

 

Singing in the dark

8 - Singing In The Dark

All your burned bum notes
Thistle in your throat
You_ve gone the distance
You hear them laugh
Skip along the path of least resistance

Wont break nobody’s heart
Singing in the dark
While no one listens
Wont break nobody’s heart
Singing in the dark
You need a witness
To your song

The crow on your shoulder
Looks down over the dead umbrellas
A smile on his face
‘There but for the grace of God go I’

Wont break nobody’s heart
Singing in the dark
While no one listens
Wont break nobody’s heart
Singing in the dark
You need a witness
To your song

All your still born songs
Never sung along
Kept in cages
Sing them all to me
Play your masterpiece
