Track Name: Bad Acolyte
on my birthday he walked in
with a dozen following
seemed like such a good omen

followed him from town to town
handed pamphlets hung around
blessed some kids unless they drowned

nothing's going to happen unless you want it to now

on the cross he shook and sighed
was no thunder flashing lights
well my problems multiplied

nothing's going to happen unless you want it to now

on the seventh day he rose
shook some dust out of his clothes
i was desperate i suppose
Track Name: Audrey Horne
black corridors and chequered floors
a pause, a body sinking
The blackest hair, her shoulders bare
a stare, or just not blinking
turning my face back to the wall
(but she keeps looking at me)

watchin tv, watchin twin peaks
makin myself some coffee
she used to call, then not at all
stalling horizontally
just wrapped in plastic on the beach
she isn’t looking at me

could I go walk up to her
and give her a great big kiss
should I walk up to her
no I am thinking I will give it a miss

cocaine and meals on wheels, eighteen wheels
flesh world weekly
danoz direct, Hilton perez
family ties, dad’s army
give yourself a present every day
let yourself curl up and blow away

could I walk up to her
and give her a great big kiss
should I walk up to her
no I am thinking I should give it a miss

could I walk up to her
would it be so amiss
could I walk up to her
it’s at the bottom of the list

cos every time I think that I’m gonna get straight
every time I think I’m gonna walk away
I’m pissing in the wind, man
I’m drunk in the rain
