Joe Louis
Home Sweet Home
15 Days (Demo)




Joe Louis
To Top


I've climbed the mountain
And I've pissed into the wind
Stood on the edge and spat over
With cheeks burned on the tip of the bone
Staggering home to a lover

Did your lazy good for nothing
Soldiers cast their cynical spell?
Are they yawning down below you
Smoking mouths in the circle of hell

Joe Joe Joe Louis
How does it feel to be
Joe Joe Joe
Open your beautiful blue eyes
Joe Louis

You are my darkness, my shelter,
My knowledge, my cradle and my sense
And though you may not always
Trail clouds of glory
One day I hope to know what it meant
To see you tower above me
Silver and grey against the blue
Instantly innocent, forever damned
Enjoy your days they’re precious and few

Joe Joe Joe Louis
How does it feel to be
Joe Joe Joe
Look at you beautiful
Tell us what you’re thinking Joe

Joe Joe Joe Louis
How does it feel to be
Joe Joe Joe
Open your beautiful blue eyes
Joe Louis

Take a deep breath
Open those eyes



Home Sweet Home
To Top


Shapes in the dark exchanging their currency
In the 21st century, you get no change
Sure-footed, walk and go, and a mouthful of hate
You could use a break
Take a look around your home
You deserve a little better
And the name on her letter was freak

In the streets you're walking, follow your ear
Like a long running argument you'll never win
Somewhere in the distance you'll run into him
Meanwhile down on the wrist, the watch says ten
A man in a black hat stands up and says
Heaven doesn't pray for those impaled
On thew horns of your kind of dilemma
Your Holy Grail

Wherever you wander, wherever you roam
I'll be the bright white light
Shining above the door for you
Your home sweet home

Dappled sunlight on a parkbench in June
Heavy weight in my belly we'd better go soon
I can't linger, can't feel my toes
Wide as Ishmael's will, there she blows
It's always later than you think
Life shorter everyday
We got time for one more drink
And do you have the means to play?
What do you say?

Wherever you wander, wherever you roam
I'll be the bright white light
Shining above the door for you
Your home sweet home



15 Days (Demo)
To Top


They wound on through the hills for 15 days
Suffering every fool that crossed their paths
On their way

I don't think they were looking
For diamonds, silver or gold
They were aiming for the pistols and the byrds
That flew above them in the heavy metal sky

They come down from the north
In their waterproof clothes
Nothing in their pockets but faith
That in the not too distant future
They'd be walking tall

You say it's alright now
But the weatherman says snow, hail and rain
That crown of thorns suits you, son
When can we all get another one
It's the least the gods can do
To help us all see this winter through Just like a rose should

Just like a rose should

Now come sun down start of week three
They'd reached the outskirts of town
They didn't need anybody to tell them
What was going down
No clowns

And bringing up the rear, fat fingers in the till
The country boy with thirty-three-point-three
Recurring nightmares
He's no partner in crime

You say it's all right now
But the sergeant thinks the situation stinks
That crown of thorns suits you, son
When can we all get another one
It's the least the gods can do
To help us all see this winter through

Just like a rose should

Just like a rose should

Looking down into the valley, the city below
Slept between the stars and the waxing moon
That hung above them
Beneath the wide arm of the sky

They didn't have what it took to be shallow,
Repetitive careerist fools
Couldn't re-package the brand and profiteer
Just grit their teeth
And remain sincere

You say it's alright now
But the chaplin says ready the grave
That crown of thorns suits you, son
When can we all get another one
It's the least the gods can do
To help us all see this winter through

Just like a rose should

Yeah, just like a rose

Keep us faithful until death
Calm in danger
Patient in suffering Merciful and brave
True to our king our colours and country
And if it be thy will enable us to win
Enable us to win
