THE PEEL SESSIONS - BBC archives The Lyrics



V2 (S. O`Néill)

I`ve got a june-bug crawlin` It dears to come It really dears to come She could say no No No Really tryin` tryin` to say no Yes some easy trouble It is a one way dream Maybe I Said no No No And I`ve need Plague for a partial Called Captain Fear to come As a rag-doll changed yours It doesn`t know Know Know

LETTUCE (S. O`Néill)

So who`s the kind of fool When he comes Makes your eyes Fill like glass All around on the table You open like Lettuce Gonna take some I`m gonna take some When I get it I can`t get no sleep I can`t breath But it makes me feel Better I`m electric I`m charged I`m floored And now I`m getting higher Gonna take some I`m gonna take some When I get it Gonna take some I`m gonna take some Gonna take some I`m gonna take some When I get it

BLINDSPOT (S. O`Néill / R. O`Gormain)

Light a candle In your heart Watch it burn down Silently Try to recollect Your thoughts and fears As the flame dies They`re all to clear The Cavalry Bells say you will Say you will When there`s no strenght Left in you No more time now For hopeless dreams Bleary eyes raise And start to fall To the sound Of tomorrow The Cavalry Bells say you will Say you will On a freefall From innocence Subliminal wispers Crowd your room Forever haunted by Your own despair Your hopes evaporate Into thin air The Cavalry Bells say you will Say you will When the day comes Still no one`s here So what`s the easy way To carry on Always reaching out For something else But in the smokescreen You`re lost again and again and again and again The Cavalry Bells say you will Say you will

CAN`T STOP (S. O`Néill / R. O`Gormain)

I`ve had a masochistic kiss of death Of discontent wall to wall A hoodlum shrine for nothing more That went beyond the steel and call I can`t stop falling I can`t stop falling But I was keen to do the perfect Not what Angels do discriminate Against black and white I`m alright And isn`t it time Your socks pulled up I can`t stop falling I can`t stop falling It`s like some voyeuristic tradition Of naked hate More and more A feeble kind of subtlety That`s lost beneath veeners of shocks I can`t stop falling I can`t stop falling I can`t stop falling I can`t stop falling I can`t stop falling I can`t stop falling I can`t stop

TIGHTLIPPED (C. McLaughlin)

Gradually the lights have gone out Steadily a fantasy unfurls Purposely the seeds of doubt Are being shown by a faceless world Perpetrating verbiage Gullible minds accept This is blanket coverage Blots out all that it rejects Can you See through The silence and the boldface lies Can you See through The silence and the boldface lies Quietly swept under the mat J. P. remains thightlipped Everyone can turn their backs Facts are being twisted and skipped Can you See through The silence and the boldface lies Can you See through The silence and the boldface lies All will point condemning fingers All will play the liberal card But the stench of lies will linger In your own backyard Can you See through The silence and the boldface lies Can you See through The silence and the boldface lie

CIRCUSVILLE (S. O`Néill)

You think I should show some respect I`d rather tear down all I can wreck `Cause I can see it in your eyes I can see it in your eyes It`s dangerous to show you respect Poison is all that you`ve spread Are you proud of the bigots you`ve bred Don`t think for me Don`t think for me While you wallow in your nice clean bed Does your family kiss you goodbye Are those crocodile tears in your eyes Don`t look for me Don`t look for me When it`s the last time they kiss you bye bye You think I should show some respect I`d rather tear down all I can wreck `Cause I can see it in your eyes I can see it in your eyes It`s dangerous to show you respect Poison is all that you`ve spread Are you proud of those bigots you`ve bred Don`t think for me Don`t think for me While you wallow in your nice clean bed

CHEAPSKATES (S. O`Néill)

As the day flickers And tastes of June Not a soul stares At a virgin moon And double breasted A pretty serious dude Commits an iceberg To hum those blues A hungry face Without a sound Listens the rhythms That are going down

MOUTH CRAZY (S. O`Néill)

Hinklestein`s inside his cabinet Outside stinks of fish and crèpe suzette Shut that crazy mouth Shut that crazy mouth Hinklestein`s inside his cabinet Only fierce girls mix with father John They`re pushing up the daisies in the sun Shut that crazy mouth Shut that crazy mouth He never used to talk to anyone Hinklestein`s adrift on uisce fhior That perfume sucker baby`s swamed with tears Shut that crazy mouth Shut that crazy mouth Hinklestein`s adrift on uisce fhior Barracuda bites on wagging tongues It makes your adolescence start up wrong Shut that crazy mouth Shut that crazy mouth It`s just the tool you used on everyone Hinklestein`s around Hinklestein`s around Hinklestein`s around Hinklestein`s around Hinklestein`s around Hinklestein`s around Hinklestein`s around Wow
