Worm

Written By: David Hess

Worm

They’re saying the same thing that I said
Another nightmare, bomb scare said in jest

But she’s so right .....

Wipe the blood stain from the lens
Lucky me? or dead is best?

He’s so right,
And she’s alright .....

Keep coming back, I know you want to
I’m like a weight inside your head
Nobody twists and turns like I do
I am the worm inside you

Get it yourself, Cos we can’t help you anymore
Bye, Bye, Fly, Fight, Forget it all

He’s so right,
And she’s alright .....

Keep coming back, I know you want to
I’m like a weight inside your head
Nobody twists and turns like I do
I am the worm inside you …

Wanted

Written By: Catherine Seton

Wanted

I've got nothing
And there's no way I can go back
She was a friend to me
She was free and I turned my back to please you

But now that's not enough
I know that's not enough

If she's not, not what you wanted
I'm not what I seem
I'll never be what you wanted
Not so wrong to be with me

I know nothing
Will explain this all to me
Where did I go wrong
Thinking about the why, when, how, but

Now you've fucked it up
I know you fucked it up

Cause she's not, not what you wanted
She's not what she seems
I'll never be what you wanted
Not so bad to be with me

(I can't wait like you can)
You can just sit back, slow down
(I can't wait like you can)
You can just sit back, slow down


Cause she's not, not what you wanted
She's not what she seems
I'll never be what you wanted
Not so bad to be with me
If I'm not, not what you wanted
Just sit back slow down
I'll never be what you wanted,
Just sit back, slow down.



I can't wait in hope you'll save me
If I'm not enough
I can't wait in hope you'll save me
Now you've fucked it up.

Waking up the Dead

Written By: David Hess

Waking up the dead

Pssssst. Wakey wakey!

You tie me down but not that way
You'll take me down but not the same way
They beat me down but not today
They beat me down in new inventive ways


Much better to die on your feet
Thank lying in your beds
A public nuisance now that I can't sleep
I'm waking up the dead

You hold me down but not that way
You hold me down but not the same way
They keep me down in different ways
They'll get me down again, but not today

Much better to die on your feet
Thank lying in your beds
A public nuisance now that I can't sleep
I'm waking up the dead

Now you agree with all you see
On you're big screen fact machine
Keep agreeing, with all you've seen
On your lean, mean, fact machine

Well alright I can see what you're trying to do
And it's a wonder that I noticed that with all we're going through
It's a case, keep it simple, keep you're eyes on the mission
I can try to stay awake, I don't wanna miss it again


Much better to die on your feet
Thank lying in your beds
A public nuisance now that I can't sleep
I'm waking up the dead

Lights, camera Action!
Lights, camera Action!)

Mr Sun

Written By: David Hess; Catherine Seton; Damian Murphy

Mr Sun

I woke
Feeling worse today
But it’s a fine line
It could have gone either way
I can’t imagine why
You came here
So smooth, with such a temper
I ask myself
What’s the payoff?
It’s such a fine line

I reach
For the cord
It’s unwinding
The room is spinning slow
Shaking
Outside of my detention
I see your world
Fade in mourning

Even though I never cry
This may all end up in tears ….

Out of the corner of my eye
Golden knives cut through the morning
The smell of stale regret and cigarettes will find me
(on a) hiding to nothing new
Mr Sun shines through

But I can’t imagine why
This may all end up in tears
But you’ll continue shining on

So if we switched positions
I’d rise to meet you like a storm
And in these bleak conditions
You’ll still be shining on and on

Shining on and on and on
Shining on ….

But I can’t imagine why

The Angel and the Urn

Written By: Catherine Seton; David Hess; Damian Murphy

The angel and the urn

Four o’clock she waits alone
As the buses come and go
She never watches television
Just the same home movie
Singing Happy Birthday darling

Changing seasons paint the yard
A flower dries in a fading card
Covered mirrors hang the walls
Shrouding histories untold
Of echoes fading from the halls
Happy Birthday darling

Another day
Another anniversary
Another winding trail in the wood between the worlds
Where god’s speed is the falling of a leaf
Carried by a breeze that moves between us all
In this moment I am

By your side
Tracing starry faces
As the sky rolls by
Home time never mattered
When you cry, I
Gather all the memories
Dry your eyes and see
I’m standing by your side

INSTR

In this moment I am

By your side
Tracing starry faces
As the sky rolls by
Home time never mattered
When you cry, I
Gather all the memories
Dry your eyes and see
I’m standing by your side

Sky rolls by,
I’m here by your side
Dry your eyes,
I’m standing by your side
