      I know it’s probably been done but what are your favourites, mine are as follows:


      And when the dawn begins to creep
      Sunlight finds you in a heap
      And how you wish that you could sleep
      Forget the lies that you’ve been told
      You think you’re settin’ free your soul
      But you’re really gettin’ old
      You’ve dreamt of divin’ in the sea
      Your outstretched arms in front of me
      And how you wished that you could breathe
      In the grip of ecstasy
      When the shadows follow me
      And the night won’t set me free
      You wish someone could love you less
      Longing for that one caress
      I see you sink under Duress
      And when you wanna kill it dead
      You let it throttle you instead


      You look like you’ve been losin’ sleep
      Said a stranger on a train
      I fixed him with an ice cold stare and said
      I’ve been havin’ those dreams again
      In one dream there’s this girl I love
      And we dance every wakin’ breath
      And in the other they’ve thrown me in a cell
      And they’re tryin’ me for her death
      I’m only young and young in love
      As I hold that girl today
      But I’m old and tired and in the cell
      And I’ve nigh on withered away
      Y’see my baby’ gone away too long
      And I’m chokin’ back the tears
      Disheveled star in a burnt out bar
      And I’m talkin’ in my drink
      She promised me the world and more
      How could she do this to me?
      And now mine’s tumblin’ down around
      But at least my eyes can see
      And those stars in the sky are for me

      So as this fagged-out tinsel town
      Waves so-long to the sun
      I lay here calmly on my bed
      And the trigger of my gun
      And should that no good woman show up
      Dancin’ from a dream
      I’ll squeeze it twice and not think twice
      And relish every scream



      I was born on a close street down a hill
      The trees that line the street
      Could sense the winter change
      They felt the chill
      They ducked and dived
      And so we knew that they were alive
      Until the year the silver rain came down
      The trees turned mauve
      And so did my hands
      Oh, and the sound . . .
      There was no sound and I’m freezing in the sun
      Nobody cares to hide the dopeheads and the suicides
      ‘Cause everyone freezes in the sun
      And it’s fallin’ away
      I kicked around with Harry
      Who lived near Salisbury Plain
      He worked on the cathedral there every now and again
      He worked with stone, carved with stone
      Odd jobs on the telephone
      One sunny day he was sent to the Houses of Parliament
      chipping’ away at the gargoyles
      Under the blistering sun
      He carved out “Maggie Sucks” on the backs of every one
      And so in five-hundred years
      There’s gonna be some history here
      After it all subsides in the sun

      And it’s fallin’ away
      And I don’t wanna know
      I’m glad I don’t know
      What’s draggin’ it under

      Another day, another loon
      A new pied piper calls the tune
      So blow it up, watch it explode
      Noah’s ark on overload
      Wrestle with the results and throw ’em round the ring
      Everybody knows there ain’t no rules in wrestling
      (everybody knows there ain’t no rules)
      The referee’s a dupe
      Who only old ladies and children believe
      I’m getting up now to leave
      I’ll go back to that street someday
      The air’s better there anyway
      Though the trees are still gonna freeze in the sun

      And it’s fallin’ away
      And I don’t wanna know
      I’m glad I don’t know
      What’s draggin’ it under

      What about you guys?
