Track Name: Daryl Waller - The Sword
your sword of conditional love
withdrawn and thrust at will
or sheathed in a paupers scabbard
pretending it can't kill

I'd happily walk into your blade
i'd smile as it came near
but beginners luck has failed me
your sword is now a spear
Track Name: Daryl Waller - If I were Dead #1
if i were dead
would you still play in the sea
kick up the autumn leaves
space out on the bed
if i were dead

if i were dead
would you still walk in the lanes
watch sparrow clouds
under skies cherry red
if i were dead

if i were dead
would you still put your feet on the dash
dance at the weddings
wet another childs head
if i were dead

if i were dead
would you still hear my voice in your skull
would life be exciting
or would it be dull
if i were dead
Track Name: Daryl Waller - The King of Spain
The king of Spain never knew my name...
Track Name: Daryl Waller - Shoad (4-track version)
i saw the sick sign in the sky
quietly turning red
your forced hand
my force was planned

give me a shoad
without the ice
and sly glance to the left

let me follow your instructions
let you instruct my followings

give me flat and warm kindness
sleepily and creepily
goodnight my love
goodnight my love
Track Name: Daryl Waller - Varroa Destroyer #1
I'm a bee infested with parasites
too tired to use ultra violet light
I'll fight the mites with all my might
i'll fight them off with all my might
and make my way home to you

I'm a sort warm seat for the poet to write
too comfortable a place to set the world alight
i know he lied, he lied, he lied, he lied
i know he lied, he lied, he lied, he lied
i know he lied
he lied.. to me and you

I'm an arm and leg of mosquito bites
too stupid and lazy to net up my nights
i lie in the dark and rearrange the lines
i lie in the dark and rearrange the times
that we were together and in love

i'm a trunk of a tree that has been split
more jealous of the grass than I care to admit
i see you stretch for miles right over the hill
i see you stretch for miles and it makes me feel ill
and my roots, my dry roots
keep me here
Track Name: Stephen O'Callaghan - Father Iceberg #2

slow down with your pitch fork: you don't run when i chase you, why won't you run?
Track Name: Stephen O'Callaghan - Join the Gym
pretty lady
show me the way!
handsome man
show me the way!

read no books
fine just lame
no point in voting
they're all the same

Come to town
buy something new
spend the money
card slice right through
life is the best
life is a pain
goodnight and god bless

join the gym
you'll fit in
join the gym
mirrors not sin
join the gym
join the gym
join the gym

I feel so bad about feeling so good
Track Name: Stephen O'Callaghan - Southpaw
i'm the southpaw
i'm the southpaw

get a grip
loosen time
feel the shame
of who to blame
take me back
to the edge
of feeling good
and utter rage

i'm the southpaw
i'm the southpaw

now here you stand
to show me how
to milk the udder
of a scared cow
if my company
unnerves you so
take a left turn
and let it go

i'm the southpaw
i'm the southpaw
Track Name: Stephen O'Callaghan - Tourguide
I'm taking some time to work on my social skills.
taking some time, but i've got no time to kill

He ignored the enemy
He ignored the enemy
My tour guide ignored the enemy
He ignored the enemy

He was fat
so fat
Track Name: Stephen O'Callaghan - Varroa Destroyer #2
if only, if only
the bumblebee fights
i were not infested with parasite mites
now i feel so alone and ever so lonely
what a mess i am in
if only, only

I'm a bee infested with parasite mites
too exhausted to fly to the northern lights
(S/O adjustment - never got the chance to see the northern lights)

I'm a warm soft seat for the poet to write
too comfortable a place to set anything right

I'm an arm and a leg of mosquito bites
too stupid and lazy to net up my nights

i'm a tree with trunk that has never been split
more jealous of the grass than I care to admit
