stars


Someone told me we're made of stars
outside there's a million bars
you walked in through my door
just as I could take no more

a sea of stars overhead
drowning in the tears of dead
Can't help wondering where you are?
bet you can't get there by car

take my hand and walk with me
on the boulevard of tainted dreams
let the anger free my soul
pray for lost ones neath the tombstone hole

pyramids point the way
as the people kneel and pray
a silent prayer as a soul departs
back to where it all starts

breathe out and breathe in
it's a game no one wins
even stars have to expire
yeah, right back into the fire

Someone told me we're made of stars
outside there's a million bars
you walked in through my door
just as I could take no more

the devils in the detail

well my baby came down the mountain
said she'd washed her sins
in a misty fountain
cleansed her very soul
god knows what she's
brought back from the hole

now eddie was sick of 9 till 5's
said man it's enough!
gonna get out of here alive
traded labour for a desk
now he's drowning
in a political mess

chorus#
it's all gone retail
the devils in the detail
it's all falling down
like a tumbleweed town
everything is for sale
the devils in the detail

sad eyed sarah struck gold
married for the love of money
he was rich but man was he old
every night she waited and prayed
seems like forever
waiting to get paid

so many struggle with being alone
it's like a curse
and turns your heart to stone
it's fantasy and sham
we all can live by bread alone
cos no one gives a tinkers damn


chorus#
it's all gone retail
the devils in the detail
it's all falling down
like a tumbleweed town
everything is for sale
the devils in the detail
