"Ghosts" - Horslips

I lived alone without you
Shadows on my wall
Ghosts in my looking glass
Voices in the hall
At first I didn’t understand
I had nothing left to sell
And although I played with fire
My life was cold as hell.
My life was cold as hell.

There came a knocking on my door
The landlord dressed in black
He said "pack your bags and move on out
We don't ever want you back "
And who was I to question
The logic of his schemes
They proved there can be hope
Wherever there are dreams.
Wherever there are dreams.

Mine was just a foolish heart
Couldn't fake a smile
Thought I'd find deliverance
Down another mile
And I remember being in love
So long ago it seems
The love that drives me ever on
Is the love I find in dreams.
Is the love I find in dreams.

"The Wrath of the Rain" - Horslips

Ragged and rough in those sepia pages
tear streaked and fearful, alone,
they were caught in the flash of the curious camera
a number, a name, do you know where they've gone?

They came with the faces of innocents
and they left with the bodies of men.
They were out on the run,
they were fleeing the wrath of the rain.

Deadbeat and drifting, they scrambled ashore
and they ran from the spell of the sea
and they looked to the past and drank to the future
and knew in their hearts it was never to be.

Some of them came from the stony lands
and some from the paths of the plain;
but every man was fleeing the wrath of the rain
They were out on the run,
they were fleeing the wrath of the rain.

Where have they gone to, those faded faces,
those fierce moustachioed men?
The women and boys and their tattered belongings,
what has become of the loss and the pain?

I see them today on the streets of the city,
we nod to each other again;
and I stand in their doorways to shelter
awhile from the rain

"RIDE TO HELL" - Horslips

You'll find him hard to recognise,
Cos he won't dress in black.
He wears a suit of gold lame.
With velvet front and back.
But he can touch your trembling heart,
Can touch your very soul:
He'll take you with him when he leaves,
He'll make your dreams turn old.

Some people say that he's a fiend,
A devil in disguise,
He'll promise love and happiness
Bright lights before your eyes,
And still you know you can't refuse,
No matter what you think.
You just got to taste the glamour
Ovations as you sink.

Ride your nightmare,
On your ride to hell,
Ride your nightmare,
On your ride.

He alone can read the signs
And he can read them well,
But where he gets his power,
There's no one here can tell.
So if you're out alone at night,
Be sure to take a friend
Cos it gets awful lonely,
In a world that never ends.

He’s sure to come a calling
When the shades of night are drawn
a twisted blackthorn in his hand,
He’ll linger until dawn.
You wish to stay forever young,
But only he knows how,
It’s his blessing, it’s his curse,
And it’s your decision now………

  • I'll scream for you in whispers, because I always hated being too loud.

She don't know that
I'll be on my way
So very soon
She don't know that
The way that I'll be raised
Ain't nothing cool
Unexpected strike
Was made one winter night

I'm Due In June
Tell her I'll be fine
Please don't give me time
It's for me to choose
And if they call me on a silver cloud asking how I got here
I'll tell I'm just feeling proud to even get to stop here
Some never get the chance to choose when they should even exist at all

Don't make me.. live
Don't make me..

!Mayday - Due In June

I didn't know you would listen
I didn't know what I was saying before
Now you're walking in that door with a mission
I hope your mind changes some more

I wanna feel what it’s like to attempt to be fly
Fall hard and crash down
I wanna know what it’s like to get up and realize
That you never once backed down
I wanna smile like you
Cry like you
Die like you will
But not before I’m born
Please let me live

I know this life will be no bed of roses
That’s fine I’ll dig through that dirt anyway
And if I do fight hard for both of us
I'm sure we can see brighter days
Hey

I wanna feel what it’s like to attempt to be fly
Fall hard and crash down
I wanna know what it’s like to get up and realize
That you never once backed down
I wanna smile like you
Cry like you
Die like you will
But not before I’m born
Please let me live

Mayday! - June

Uh-oh, they know around the world
Whoa-oh, the secret is unfurled
And now, they know around the world
Uh-oh

We know, we saw the print-out say
We know, they tried to make us stay
And now, we won't go away
Uh-oh

And they told us
That they sold us
But we brought them down!

Bang! The mouse explodes!
Bang! The mouse explodes!
Bang! Bang! The mouse explodes!
Tonight
All right
It's out of sight

I step right off the edge, let the blood rush to my head
I'm going down to where the lucky ones have bled
I lift the veil up to reveal a fascination
And if you crave it then you know that you are injured

And I'm holding on
And I'm holding on

For what you do to me, oh, baby, there's no measure
I've taken everything, now I want to give it
I left the lights on so you stumble in devotion
So easy, so easy, it's left unspoken

And I'm holding on
And I'm holding on
And I'm holding on
And I'm holding on

I've come to realize you're the only thing I want
I'm falling all the way in
I'm falling all the way in
I've come to realize you're the only thing I want

Everything you do, I'm right there
Please wake me from this nightmare
You can't seem to see me but I'm right here
Transparent, in the night air
Afraid to walk in the light
And so I stay here and try to watch you at night
Try to hold dear everything in our life
If I had more time I would've made you my wife
But I, never seen it comin it was so fast
Tried to hold on, but I couldn't last
As I laid dying, everything flashed
All our hopes and dreams are now passed
I'm still beside you, but you can't see
I know you want it back, but it can't be
I'm afraid the darkness now has me
Just try to live on and be happy


Baby I will see you again
Just know that I love you
Always thinking of you
Ever since you went away
Not much left to live for
Close my eyes and wish for
Just to have you one more day
Nothin' is the same now
All I feel is pain now
I will never be the same
Always have the same frown
All I do is break down
Every time I hear your name


Sometimes it would water my eyes
When you stare off into space and cry
For a second I feel so alive
But the it, sets in that I'm nothin besides
A ghost, my God is empty I wish I was set free
Afraid to leave, she will forget me
I scream in vain
I speak her name
It's so hard when I see her in pain
There's nothin I can do to comfort her
And death itself couldn't take my love for her
Nothin is left for judgement that must occur
And everything else is becoming such a blur
Fading away and everything turns dark
Goin away to a place so far
Leaving you now, we must be apart
But I'll go on livin in your heart

I go crazy
When I look in your eyes
I still go crazy
No, my heart just can't hide
That old feeling inside
Way deep down inside
Oh, Baby
You know when I look in your eyes
I go crazy

I feel this is the beginning
The beginning through the end
There’s nothing left to fear now
So watch me close as once again you

Burn me alive
Set me on fire
And watch me die
Burn me alive
Watch me resurrect
Right before your eyes

I feel the pressure is building in me
My stomach is sick, it’s getting harder to breathe
I hear the screaming, I feel the disease
There’s blood in the air, and there is death on the breeze

Will you come with me?
Will you stand with me?
Would you follow me?
Would you believe with me?
Tell me you’ll bleed with me
Tell me you’ll die with me

I’ll tear you apart
I’ll feed off your heart
I wanna see your bodies grinding just for me
I’m just what you need, the perfect disease
Don’t you wanna turn the beauty into the beast?

Endorphins start to swell now
As I step up to my throne
I feel the monster caged inside of me
Screaming through my bones
I wanna see you start to sweat now
I wanna see you lose your minds
I wanna feel you all from deep within
Swayin’ back and forth all night

Hold my hand
Ooh, baby, it’s a long way down to the bottom of the river
Hold my hand,
Ooh, baby, it’s a long way down, a long way down

The wolves will chase you by the pale moonlight
(Drunk and driven by a devil’s hunger)
Drive your son like a railroad spike
(Into the water, let it pull him under)
Don’t you lift him, let him drown alive
(The good Lord speaks like a rolling thunder)
Let that fever make the water rise
(And let the river run dry)

I'm waking up to ash and dust
I wipe my brow and I sweat my rust
I'm breathing in the chemicals
I'm breaking in, shaping up, then checking out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse
Whoa

I raise my flags, don my clothes
It's a revolution, I suppose
We're painted red to fit right in
Whoa

I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive
Whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive

All systems go, sun hasn't died
Deep in my bones, straight from inside
