Track Name: Labyrinthine
When I disappear, now, from the labyrinth's insides,
to float in the atmosphere of the divine - if you can, wear a smile.
Bury me with ease, pennies on both eyes.
Put roses in a vase, and spilt milk in a vile.

And when hell's internal,
(beyond the wall's a gray sky every which way you look),
you'll never foresee it being simple - when was it ever?
You're not alone in this child, we've all been lost in a labyrinthine.

No-one gets out alive, but, there's two sides to this.
Footsteps in the sand are like the grains in an hourglass -
here today, gone tomorrow,
here today, gone tomorrow,

They consummate on to the other side of time.
Then things are not quite what they were before.
You'll never be nailed to this.
Journey round the centre of a maze, and you'll make it through.

In a collateral,
(better than a cuban necktie any which way you're looking).
I've never foreseen it being simple - when is it ever?
I know just how you feel, you twist and turn in a labyrinthine.

No-one gets out alive, but, there's two sides to this.
Footsteps in the sand are like the grains in an hourglass -

Here today, gone tomorrow.
You'll be nearing an exit, then it's right in front of you.
Here and now, just know what's approaching.
Track Name: Sister Mary
Rain is falling on the cobblestone.
London doesn't burn it drowns.
In cups of tea and prayer,
rain will go and come another day.

Jack the ripper's at the corner store,
purchasing a new switchblade to match the shade of his eyes.
Oh, what a stupid world.

Sister Mary - praying in the cemetery.
Father Michael - paying for the peep show.

Noddy's off in Toy Land, with the boy's in berry blue.
Golly's wrapped in white sheets,
soothing bad dreams of black days and nights.

Have I mentioned it's a strange world?
Have I mentioned it's a conundrum?
Ewe, march to the beat of your drum.
Claim your grass and say it's baa-baa-beautiful.

Sister Mary - praying in the cemetery.
Father Michael - paying for the peep show.

Beautiful, strange, world.
Beautiful, strange, world.
