Track Name: Tramontana
all done and dusted now it's time to get lost
for them singers and sailors, agents and tailors
where the green eyed she-devils
pouring whiskey in pitchers
this is all going downhill
and it goes pretty fast
run boys run

stammer a hail mary on the slide down the slope

run boys run

if you need a last prayer now it's time to have your say

for the sun smells like blood
and the river it washes
the bodies down to the sea
stuck in the mud
in a war we can't win
the scent of decay
is the perfume to stay
on our mind 'til we die


the weeks feel like years
but there's always an end
to that track you stagger down
with a bottle in each hand
it's god on our side
and the devil on our back
as we linger on down highstreet
with a rope around our neck
run boys run

stammer a hail mary on the slide down the slope

run boys run

if you need a last prayer now it's time to have your say

the blistering sun makes the blood all trickle away
tramontana will tell them how this all gone so terribly wrong
if you sit on the bank of that muddy old river
you might hear him humming this song

and it goes

run boys run ....
Track Name: Good Friday
would you take me on a journey
through your crooked mind
that might give me some enlightment
for i suppose that i've been blind

i still think there are excuses
maybe something that i missed
when we built our little castle
on a toyground out of sand
on that rocky road to fame when things got slightly
out of hand

yes I've seen it all a-coming
just before it hit the fan
ignored all of the warnings
when those dark clouds disappeared
diving head on into trouble
in a most unpleasant year
in a most unpleasant year

should have known the crop we earned
after years of sweat and toil
those few shiny nuggets
that we scraped out of the soil

they'd be gone just before sunrise
leaving just a bitter taste
of disappointment endless fights
and a hundred broken dreams
half a lifetime we did waste

yes I've seen it all a-coming
I'm not angry anymore
I'm happy that your greediness
did help to close the door
helped to close the door

I'm not angry anymore...
