The penny drops

Another day goes by we'll never see again
Gone in the blink of a wasted eye and down the drain
It's all up to you, you're building this hell
With each fresh excuse to water at the well

Hasn't the penny dropped? 
Isn't it time you stopped
Dousing this dancing flame
Staining your family name
Swallow all the blame and start again 

Pound notes for the moths, you smell like rotting fruit
Swallow hard upon the truth, pick another route
Nobody else heaped the spirit on your breath
Playing overtime toward an early death

Hasn't the penny dropped? 
Isn't it time you stopped
Dousing this dancing flame
Staining your family name
Swallow all the blame and start again 

Fills me full of doubt, no alternative, no easy way out
Fills me full of doubt......and it's wearing me out.

Summon up the rage be angry with yourself
Find a quiet spot at the back of the shelf
Fill the holes with words and write them all down
And maybe you could turn this wagon round

Chorus

Heavy weather girl

Down in the pit where the memories stain
and the good times don't come cheap
A ship load of positive economy
came to pull you to your feet

Lost in a field where the melodies hide,
sat the catcher with no voice
Fingerpicking heart and a golden tone, 
shone the light of choice

Stood like a duke from a painting
The pearls fell off like hope
You'd been staring down the wrong end of the telescope

Standing tall, a mushroom cloud, with a halo on and an angel by your side
We all need a heavy weather girl to help hold back the tide

Back down the line came a fork in time
when the dice rolled down the drain
Instead of crying out you buried your head
Till good reason broke the chain

Bridge

Chorus

Sat in a trance at the temple
With the truth around your feet
You put the car in reverse and backed down the dead end street

Chorus

In search of the deep

Across the room she bats her lids to seal the deal
Pierces the shell of my private hell made out of steel
She reigns sublime, she's airbrushed dirt
But it's too late, she's too damn pert
She wants it, she gets it, she takes it anyway....

She's so shallow I really shouldn't stay
So callow I should walk away
But my hands are bound

She takes the lead, offers some speed but I decline
I just assumed she'd have a point of view but she don't shone
No one's home though she looks alert
If life's a gas then she's inert
She wants it, she gets it, she takes it anyway.....

Chorus

No other lover hit the mark that she had made
She had the bones and i applauded her parade
There's nothing in this beauty's head 
so alive And yet stone dead
She wants it, she gets it, she takes it anyway....

Chorus

Knocking on the door of the deaf

Been coming apart at the edges
My vulgar tongue was loose
I burnt my hands on fiery dreams
And over-cooked the goose
I was high and aloof on a North London roof
Been coming apart at the edges
But now I'm drinking in the truth 

Been coming apart at the edges
Each word I wrote felt cheap
I couldn't let go the thunderbolt
And my mind refused to sleep
I was high and aloof on a North London roof
Been coming apart at the edges
But now I'm drinking in the truth 

Been coming apart at the edges
My soul was wafer thin
I forgot to let the drawbridge down
and the palace walls fell in
I was high and aloof on a North London roof
Been coming apart at the edges
But now I'm drinking in the truth 

I wasted precious time
knocking on the door of the deaf
