MUTINEERS

  • 1. Back In The World (3:57)

    Every day when I open my eyes now
    It feels like a Saturday
    Taking down from the shelf
    All the parts of myself
    That I packed away
    If it’s Love lifts us up from the dark
    Is it God by another name
    Who’s to say how it goes
    All I know is
    I’m back in the world again
    Like the lift of a curse
    Got a whole different person
    Inside my head
    No more trudging around
    Stony eyed through the town
    Like the living dead
    If it’s Love put the joy in my heart
    Is it God by another name
    Who’s to say how it goes
    All I know is
    I’m back in the world again
    Back in the world again
    It’s the only way to be
    It’s the only way to be
    I’m naked like a tree
    It’s the only way to be
    I’m naked like a tree
    It’s the only way to be
    Less than sand on the beach
    Staring into the reaches of Space and Time
    I’m singing out words
    But the voice that I hear
    It seems barely mine
    If it’s Love put the song in my heart
    Is it God by another name
    Who’s to say how it goes
    All I know is
    I’m back in the world again
    Who’s to say how it goes
    All I know is
    I’m back in the world again
    Back in the world again

    It’s the only way to be
    It’s the only way to be
    I’m naked like a tree
    It’s the only way to be
    I’m naked like a tree
    It’s the only way to be

    Every day when I open my eyes
    Yeah yeah
    Every day when I open my eyes
    Yeah yeah
  • 2. As The Crow Flies (4:13)

    A part of me pre
    A part of me post
    A part of me present
    One part of me ghost
    A part of me wants to run
    One part of me flowing
    One part stopping dead
    One part of me knowing
    It’s all in my head
    Sometimes when I’m open wide
    A part of me tries to hide
    Take all of me once
    Take all of me twice
    A love with no limit
    Is worth any price
    Not far to the good stuff
    As the crow flies
    A part of me earth
    A part of me sky
    One part of me sober
    One part of me high
    One part of me quiet
    One part of me bold
    A part of me dying
    For the truth to be told
    In all of my time before
    Never wanted something more
    Take all of me once
    Take all of me twice
    Take all of me stupid
    Take all of me wise
    Not far to the good stuff
    As the crow flies
    Not far to the good stuff
    As the crow flies

    Baby take me wise
    Like the old crow flies
    Baby take me wise
    Like the old crow flies
    Baby take me wise
    Like the old crow flies
    Baby take me wise
  • 3. Mutineers (5:02)

    You know the way it is
    These thoughts are mutineers
    Trying to shake the monkey off my back
    So beat the island drum
    And steady as she come
    And all the stores are closing for the lack
    To drink the damn place dry
    Only plan of attack
    And Babe

    The early warning signs
    All lit up in my mind
    It’s true you know
    Some things weren’t meant to be
    Until your secret’s out
    It’s your worst enemy

    And Babe

  • 4. Beautiful Agony (4:05)

    I felt something snap
    Looked up and you were gone
    Clean through the gap somewhere
    That I can’t get to
    Love vandalising me
    With beautiful agony
    Love vandalising me
    With beautiful agony
    Batten hatches
    Full survival mode
    A word that
    Catches in my throat
    Short Pause
    And then the full force
    Knocks me sideways
    Love vandalising me
    With beautiful agony
    Love vandalising me
    With beautiful agony
    Once upon a time
    It wasn’t like this
    Love was mine
    So what the hell
    Is after happening here
    I’m stepping out
    Into the roar
    Trying to hear that voice

    Saying Hey
    Don’t worry
    It’s alright
    Don’t worry
    Ah now Dave
    Don’t worry

    Love vandalising me

    Baby say it isn’t true
    You were never there
    It wasn’t you
    It’s more than I can do
    To try and keep it shiny new
    The gap just opens up
    Between the words we like to use
    And the thing that’s seen
    Seen through your eyes now darling
    In blue distances calling
    Like the birds of the high arctic
    And you don’t have to make the move
    No there ain’t nothing left to prove
    Accept the plain unvarnished truth
    It’s a part of you you can’t remove
    Like a love that’s been
    There ain’t no answers darling
    Just blue distances calling
    Like the birds of the high arctic
    They’re calling

  • 10. Girl Like You (5:19)

    Shaking off the morning dew
    No I never met a girl like you
    Trying to see the land as it lies
    Is like driving with the sun in my eyes
    Not a thought in my head what to do
    Cos I never met a girl like you
    Clear in your head when you’re setting those sights
    Fear in your bed when the loneliness bites
    Try to get rid we’ll be hitting those heights
    I’m working on it
    I’m working on it
    I’m working on it
    I’m working on it
    I’m working on it
    Yeah working on it
    Someone left the door ajar
    Now I’ve no idea who you are
    Not a thought in my head what to do
    Cos I never met a girl like you
    Clear in your head when you’re setting those sights
    Fear in your bed when the loneliness bites
    Try to get rid we’ll be hitting those heights

    I’m working on it

    I’m trying to get along with my brother
    But my brother is so hard to know
    I don’t want no soul to suffer
    But it’s not an easy line to toe
    So I’m working on it
    Ah working on it

    Don’t know what you are to me
    Don’t know where I want to be
    Don’t know what you are to me
    Don’t know where I want to be
  • 11. Gulls (4:55)

    This land belongs to the gulls
    And the gulls to their cry
    And their cry to the wind
    And the wind belongs to no-one
    The wind belongs to no-one
    I gave my breath to the song
    To the song, wasn’t mine
    Neither of ship nor of sea
    Neither of glass nor of wine
    Leaving this ghost of a road
    I’m climbing hand over hand
    Toward that pinprick of light

    Toward the seed that God sowed
    Toward the seed that God sowed
    Toward the seed that God sowed
    Toward the seed that God sowed

    Oh Baby
    Try to recognise it in my mind
    Try to stamp it out before it happens
    Yeah I try to recognise it in my mind
    Try to stamp it out

    The writing’s on, the writing’s on
    The writing’s on the wall
    The writing’s on, the writing’s on
    The writing’s on the wall x 4

    This land belongs to the gulls
    And the gulls to their cry
    And their cry to the wind
    And their cry to the wind
    And their cry to the wind
