lyrics

AND JUST LIKE THAT I AM YOUNG NO MORE
DEAD BEFORE THIRTY’S WHAT I SAID BEFORE
I SAID IT HALF IN JEST
AND HALF IN HOPE
NOW I’M ON THE KNIFE’S EDGE OF BEING OLD

SHOULD I STAY THE COURSE
AND KEEP ON THIS ROAD
I’M NOT FINISHED WITH THE WORK
AND IT’S YOUR FAULT IF YOU’RE BORED
BLOOD ON THE DOOR JAMB
EGYPTIAN LAMBSKIN
PHARAOH WAS A GOD
AND I’M THE KING OF LORDS

KNOTS AND CROSSES
WHAT’S ON OFFER
DRAW IT UP
LIKE A LEGAL CONTRACT
SIGN YOUR NAME ON THE DOTTED LINE
NOW PASS ME THE GLASS
BEFORE I CHANGE MY MIND

KNOTS AND CROSSES
NOUGHTS AND NILS
ADD TWO TO ANY SUM
AND IT’S ZERO STILL
KNOTS AND CROSSES
LILAC NYLONS
I DON’T CARE WHAT YOU HEARD
I WOULDN’T TRUST THAT GIRL

GAUZY LIGHTS IN THE AFTERNOON
TWO OR THREE DAYS SPENT IN THAT ROOM
I PUT A TOWEL ON THE FLOOR AND I CRASHED ON THE COUCH
AND I AWOKE TO THE SOUND OF BLACK SILK ROBE

WHIZZING ‘CROSS
WELL MOISTURIZED SKIN
HOW CAN IT BE SO QUIET AND SO LOUD
AT THE EXACT SAME TIME
I JUMPED UP AND ON INSTINCT
MADE A PASS FOR MY BLADE
AND BALLED UP MY FIST

I WON’T BE AFRAID TO ADMIT
THE ASTONISHING DRIP
AND THE ASTOUNDING FLIP
MADE IN ONE CLEAN SWEEP
RIGHT BEFORE MY EYES
AND ON THE DISCOUNT CARPET
