LAST PERFECT THING - A RETROSPECTIVE The Lyrics



CHAMBER OF HELLOS (K. Hunter / K. Herr)

Someone`s masquerading in the galleries today Beside the arch it is always following me It seems Confusion dance and echoes ringing loud So clear Vaging on these loops are filled with Empty dreams In a chamber of hellos In a chamber of hellos In a chamber of hellos In a chamber of Such familiar feelings Come and go Betraying Such familiar prayers said to the way And gone Someone`s masquerading in the galleries Leave no one Making all these moves when no one really Hears hallo In a chamber of hellos In a chamber of hellos In a chamber of hellos In a chamber of Hello hello hello In a chamber of In a chamber of In a chamber of hellos In a chamber of Hello hello Hello hello Hello hello Hello hello Hello

NEVER (K. Hunter / K. Herr)

Eternal day belongs in silence Silence days we sit and shelter Endlessly Possessively And when she talks her words keep falling When she fights with me She fights with me and him Not them And promises to darkened night club Or any edge to black Never promise for us haunted Or for stories Talk about Barron trains runout before me I lift my head for shining silver Silver beams Ravishing The voice of reason wanders in The house of beam there and I`ll go there Sleeping Dreaming Promises run endlessly They`re words to make believe And Christ is hanging everywhere And it always ends in Precious time Never works for no one Never works for no one Never works for no one No one ever No one ever No one ever No one ever Promises run endlessly They`re words to make believe And Christ is hanging everywhere And it always ends in Precious time Never works for no one Never works for no one Never works for no one No one ever No one ever No one ever No one ever No one ever No one ever No one ever No one ever

I`LL WAIT FOR YOU (K. Hunter)


LAST PERFECT THING (K. Hunter)

We could make cathedrals of shipyards Pay our penance in tattooes Never is a common place position Seventeen are the shades in the sky of cold Nebraska blue She can make the flowers smell like heanven We watch the box cars as they unload We were laughing Who`s the train was Mornings come Undone In the last perfect thing In the last perfect thing In the last perfect thing The bells ring Days change And I awake The last perfect thing We could steal the keys to the church Tell Virgina we were bored She can make the flowers smell like heaven We saw the fire on the field that night With a great and moving passion Evenings come Undone Make it seem like Make it seem like Make it seem like We were really there In the last perfect thing In the last perfect thing In the last perfect thing The bells ring Days change And I awake The last perfect thing In the last perfect thing In the last perfect thing In the last perfect thing The bells ring Days change And hide away The last perfect thing In the last perfect thing In the last perfect thing

SKILLS OF SUMMER (K. Hunter / K. Herr)

There`s an elevator here Pocket for the rain Taking all our hearts across this river And back again Making all our crosses clear of all our skeletons I can still remember when God was first you took on Sunday She said She said Burning candles all around her bed She said She said The end of May We will begin again It`s the skill of summer It`s the new parade In another season it`s the work of faith Between our harnesses And harmony It`s the skill of summer It`s the work of faith We can burn the billboards advertising lite our lies We can bury ourselves in each others eyes We can hide our hearts Hide our hopes and hide our dreams I can still remember when God was first you took on Sunday She said She said Burning candles all around her bed She said She said The end of May We will begin again It`s the skill of summer It`s the new parade In another season it`s the work of faith Between our harnesses And harmony It`s the skill of summer It`s the work of faith It`s the skill of summer It`s the new parade In another season it`s the work of faith Between our harnesses And harmony It`s the skill of summer It`s the work of faith It`s the skill of summer It`s the skill of summer It`s the skill of summer It`s the skill of summer

GOD ON OUR SIDE (B. Dylan)

My name it means nothing My age it means less The country I come from Is called Mid West I was raised and brought up there By Lords divide And that the land that I lived in Had God on it`s side The history books tell They tell so well The cavalry charging and the indians fell The cavalry charging and the indians died The country was young then With God on it`s side The country was young then With God on it`s side The Second World War Came to an end We forgave the Germans Then we were friends Though they murdered six million In ovens they fried The Germans now do Have God on their side The Germans now do Have God on their side I learnt to hate the Russians All through my whole life if another war comes It`s then we must fight To hate and to fear them To run and to hide And accept it all bravely With God on our side Accept it all bravely With God on our side Accept it all bravely With God on our side Accept it all bravely With God on our side Accept it all bravely God on our side Accept it all bravely God on our side No one God on our side No one God on our side

WHEN SHE WAS A GIRL (T. Chauncey / K. Hunter / K.Herr)

Do you remember the working girl She was a Heroin for me Kept herself in a violof water Evidentially She watched the boardwalk As the children came to play She wished for the years That she had rent away Outwardly Yes you knew Her When she was a girl And now she is no more Do you remember her flashing smile And the teeth she had behind You remember her memories But not her mind The fish market wines Always howl their cruel response They look for victims they can hang it on Outwardly Yes you knew Her When she was a girl But now she is no more I`ve seen the dream or two And I`ve watched the cars drive by the motorway You can make both pride and predjudice Your friend again You can make a king of anyone Outwardly Yes you knew Her When she was a girl But now she is no more

TWO PERSONS (K. Hunter / A. Rundblad)

I found the mattress Robert Frost called it quits on Sleep like a genious was all the sign said I lit titanes between the percale and the pillow We`re seeing the death Of our deathleed Two persons are too personal Two persons Two persons Two persons are too personal Two persons Two persons Somebody said "Hey man you`re watching all your money" "Now act your age" they said and I just said "I know" I ran out screaming and I smashed her water cooler Why be yourself if you`re not just doing what you`re told Two persons are too personal Two persons Two persons Two persons are too personal Two persons Two persons Between your buttons and your bell bottoms you`re beautiful You make me wish that I had learned how to fish I see surrender in your eyes like a velvet painting But even Jesus was betrayed by a kiss I cross my fingers cross my hands cross myself for luck My love leaves me alone she`s on the 5th floor I saw your darling and you don`t sound so wonderful When love comes knocking I just don`t get the door Two persons are too personal Two persons Two persons Two persons are too personal Two persons Two persons Two persons are too personal Two persons Two persons Two persons are too personal

FLOWERS (Wire Train)


DIVING (K. Hunter / Wire Train)

Her precious bones lay like the coral sen In visions of her broken memories The hallway and hotel just stare and breath The morning means Marie will take her leave And she goes diving She goes diving For shelter from out lyin` She goes diving She goes diving She goes diving For shelter from out lyin` She goes diving The anailbox and the maids on River street Remind her of the woman Girlishly The hallway and hotel just stare and breath The morning means Marie will take her leave And she goes diving Diving For shelter from out lyin` She goes diving Yeah well she goes diving She goes diving For shelter from out lyin` She goes diving Yeah well she goes diving Diving Diving She goes diving For shelter from out lyin` She goes diving Well the truth is hard to find When you read the tale of mine So you go to take a dive

SHE`S A VERY PRETTY THING (K. Hunter)

She put his ring to her finger She put her wrist to the blade She watches the clock now and wonders Just when Will she be Saved She wears his suit to the cleaners She wishes her tattooes would change She arranges herself on the canvas But who Will she get For the paint All along the bowline They sing her melody She`s a very pretty thing She will never be denied She`s a very pretty thing Her smile knows what the river knows And I don`t know why She keeps whispering Her phantom glory is fading She melts from the frescoes to floor The bread in a vault he`s been saving The wine He licks from the floor All along the bowline They sing her melody She`s a very pretty thing And she will never be denied She`s a very pretty thing Her smile knows what the river knows And I don`t know why She keeps whispering She`s a very pretty thing

COMPASSION (Wire Train) feat. The Waterboys

The captain served the city steems A matron sexual demons A viscious presidency kneels The end The end The end What about Compassion The river burns the river bends You look for enemies hide from friends You think you`re virtue to the fence The end The end The end What about Compassion Good idea of good is bent You better get yourself on the mend Of all the hatred that you`ve spent The end The end The end What about The best we think the word is fair I know you say that you don`t care What if there was no one there The end The end The end What about Compassion Yeah!
