Life On Earth – Lyrics

LIFE ON EARTH
(Ken Murdoch)
Lead vocal Ken Murdoch

Life on Earth
Life on Earth
Why do we act like animals, animals

I think when I lie in my bed
All the people I knew who are now dead
What did they need who can they see
Conclusions that find now rolling into the ground
My watch doesn’t tell me my name
My CDs are still the same
I don’t give a damn if I’m friends with the man
Who once told me I’d never be as famous as I am

CHORUS

Life on Earth
Life on Earth
Why do we act like animals, animals

A man stands alone at his well
He is wealthy as far as he can tell
He doesn’t know a 3D screen
He doesn’t know a fashion scene
A girl sits as someone colours her nails
She thinks of all the money she’s made
She passes by the shoeless guy
And wonders why the country doesn’t clean the street
Where her friends she meets

How can we take more from you
And then we can turn away too
Why do we act like animals
How can we fight and then sleep
Take more than we possibly need
And then we act like animals, animals

I AM GOD
(Ken Murdoch)
Lead vocal Ken Murdoch

Give me credit when it’s due
You found me but I found you
You uncovered more to me
Exactly what I let you see
I’ll become your sacred dream
I can make you want to scream
Question purpose all you want
Just give me your faith and blood

I Am God

From the deserts of Naim
To the Hindu temple of Anga Wat
They call my name let Kingdom come
As far as David’s Jerusalem
THEY CRIED Clondalkin Paper Mills
Desire of the everlasting hills
They question motive from above
Give me all your faith and blood

I Am God

Screaming Turks 1664
I heard the cries of the Persian war
Mugabe’s prayers to St Gabriel
They beg of me not to go to hell
But I am one despite your race
You don’t know me don’t know my face
Question outcomes all you want
Just give me your faith and blood

I Am God

IS IT JUST A DREAM
(Ken Murdoch)
Lead vocal Ken Murdoch

The sound of love it calls to me from a heart that has no story
It draws me to its pain and though I scream in vain
I know I’ll never need another reason to be here except to drown in its danger
It feels just like a dream

Calmly as I climb the stairs, her voice it seems to carry
I’m tearing at her dress, I carry no regrets,
I’m only taking orders as the blood joins with my sweat
I cast my eyes out to the window

From the time that I saw you, it was all that I could do
The only way we’d be together,
Pieces fell in place
It was the smallest price to pay to make sure you’d never go.

As I feel my senses start to close
I know I’d do it all again to keep you from seeing through me
You never looked at me, a joke was all you’d see
I tried to make you hear, you traded love for fear
You screamed to let me go
I love you more than you will ever know
And then I took your life, fell on the knife
And at last we’d be together
No longer in a dream
No longer in a dream
Can it feel now just a dream.

A ROOM FULL OF ANGELS
Ken Murdoch/Michael Tortoni
Vocals Joey Amenta & Ken Murdoch

When you’re roaming the dark and you’re drunk from before
And you rattle your brain
and your feet touch the floor
And you feel a cold breath on
the nape of your neck
That’ll be me
CHORUS
In a room full of angels
surrounded by strangers
Who won’t let go, and I’ll always watch over
In a room full of angels
When you hit the ground running
and your path is unclear
And your baggage seems heavy
and the sun disappears
And you feel a cold hand
to carry you on
That’ll be me
REPEAT CHORUS X 2
In a room full of angels
In a room full of angels

I can carry you home,
In a room full of angels
I can weather the storm
In a room full of angels
and everything
seems to be braver again

THE FATAL SHORE
(Ken Murdoch)
Lead vocal Ken Murdoch

CHORUS:
This is my country, this is my life,
These are my children, that is my wife
I offer you friendship, here is my hand
Take it or leave it I don’t understand
why you just can’t be happy you only want more
This is my homeland, My Fatal Shore

“Can I get more coffee” was the last free thing I said
The sun on the sails like weight on a scales turned everything dangerously red
I imagined my life if I’d only passed by, I was late but I lingered instead
I opened the door and sat down like before a thousand times in my head
You were there waiting for your perfect crime
Well rehearsed, I am certain ‘cause you took your time
But all I could think of was the train that I missed, the time that I took my first lover’s kiss
Anything that would cancel what you had in store
To take me away from My Fatal Shore

REPEAT CHORUS

The clock on the wall, the people who stalled, the moment I’d fall, how you savoured it all
I remember a car that I saw broken and stripped, thinking of it made me loosen my grip
And all I remember is your wailing call. I had to do something but nothing at all
The music was playing a song that I knew, I started to sing, I sang it to you
This seemed to confuse you, you started to laugh, you drew back your shirtsleeves and removed you scarf
And somewhere at dusk in a faraway land, children were playing and clasping their hands,
It all feels so peaceful, the lightning it screams, the next thing that happened it seemed like a dream

You were calm, you seemed happy, you called someone’s name,
You stared at the darkness and nobody came
A shot rang out as it entered your brain and everything seemed to be normal again
I thought of your heaven and smiled to above
You can scream all you want but you’ll never find love.

REMEDY
(Joey Amenta)
Lead Vocal Joey Amenta

I can see where my future lies in front of me
Now I know, won’t you hold me close just once more

CHORUS
Cos I need a remedy for you
I need a remedy
My heart needs a remedy for love
Find me a remedy

I let go of all the things that glitter ain’t always gold
Now I see it’s in the melody
It’s in the melody

REPEAT CHORUS

I see the light, my heart shining bright for you
You and me were meant to be running free

Oh a remedy, oh a remedy
My heart needs a remedy
Somebody find me a remedy

Cos I need a remedy for you
Find me a remedy
You know my heart needs a remedy for love
Find me a remedy

Find me a remedy for you
Find me a remedy
I need a remedy for love
Somebody find me, somebody find me,
Somebody find me, Somebody find me
Oh a remedy
Oh a remedy
Oh a remedy
I need a remedy
Find me a remedy.

ON THE LAST DAYS OF OUR LIVES
(Ken Murdoch)
Lead vocal Ken Murdoch

Think of a time you remember
All of the fears you surrendered
Days when you thought were never ending
You were my only one then
Walking without your eyes open
Waiting to climb without hoping
Dealing with dreams and still coping
Who would have thought it could end

CHORUS:
So kiss me and hold me
Lay down beside me
Never will it seem so cold again
On the last days of our lives
You know we can’t make it
Soon we can forsake it
Who ever thought there’d be an ending
On the last days of our lives

Watching the sky fall around you
Everything black that was once blue
Just when thought I could love you
Of, what a fool I have been

REPEAT CHORUS

BLOOD
(Ken Murdoch)
Lead vocal Ken Murdoch

We’ve been to heaven and we’ve be to hell and back
And we’ve seen them all come and we’ve stuck together through
Hard times and laughter, we were a total disaster
But blood is not thicker at all
But blood is not thicker at all

We’ve had our world wars and
We’ve had our moments too precious to write off on
Papers and newsprint
You were my best friend and I’ll never lose you cause
Blood is not thicker at all
Blood is not thicker at all

I always love you and time cannot change that
I gave you my whole life you gave me such pleasure
Whoever said that bloods not thicker than water
Blood is not thicker at all
Blood is not thicker at all

MAGIC
(Ken Murdoch)
Lead vocal Ken Murdoch

With our common love of history, ironically it seems to me
Like Salim and Anarkali our love was meant to be
The Greek gods sound like you and me
Fighting for eternity
With stormy passion and desire
My love burns with desire

CHORUS:
Our kind of love is magic, magic
Bordering on Tragic, Tragic
You look the other way when everybody says

You can be my hero, hero
Then you fall to zero, zero
And then bounce up again
And then we start again

Like Superman and kryptonite
My heart is gone, it’s in your sight
You fly away with me, like it was meant to be

Like Romeo and Juliet
We give as good as we can get
The poison in our eyes
Makes us stronger to survive

CHORUS

SIR BOB
(Ken Murdoch/Michael Tortoni)
Lead vocal Michael Tortoni

I think back to the occupy movement, on one level what did it achieve?
I think back to the occupy movement, it was a big success on that fateful eve

The fact that there was no agenda, nobody could say that’s what they wanted,
That was brilliant, we say no! What do you say no about?

CHORUS
Sir Bob said fuck off, everything just fuck off,
That’s what Sir Bob said, that’s what Sir Bob said

REPEAT CHORUS

I think back to the occupy movement, on one level what did it achieve
I think back to the occupy movement, it was a big success on that fateful eve
The fact that there was no agenda, nobody could say what they wanted
That was brilliant, we say no! What do you say no about?

REPEAT CHORUS x 2

I think back to the occupy movement, on one level what did it achieve
I think back to the occupy movement, it was a big success on that fateful eve
It confounded people and they parked their tents,
They said no to the lot
It’s just not working, Give peace a chance.

REPEAT CHORUS x 2

SCREAM
(Ken Murdoch/Joey Amenta)
Lead vocal Joey Amenta

Did you think that you’d be free
Did you think that you’d follow me
Was it love or was it money
I thought you were my friend
Your evil never ends and
Greed lives in your soul

The hatred in your head will
Eat you up inside
The evil that you do
Will come back to haunt you

You make me want to scream
All I do is scream
You make me want to scream,
All I do is scream

Doesn’t matter what you say
The words you spin are lies
You’re rotten to the core and it’s you that I despise
You think you are so clever
And now I wish I’d never set eyes on you

You make me want to scream

I’LL DISSAPEAR
(Murdoch/Matilda/Amenta)
Vocals Joey Amenta & Ken Murdoch

This is so hard to say but I’ve just got to leave
Because this loves not true, I’m so sorry
I don’t want to break somebody’s heart, This is not right

CHORUS:
I’ll go my dear, I’ll disappear
Just know, just know, I’m so sorry

I find it hard all the way
But my heart it won’t say what you wish it would
Threes a place in my soul
And I just can’t let go
If only I could

REPEAT CHORUS

You might understand maybe someday
I’ll hold your hand, but I just can’t stay
