Copper fastens to your bloods The counterfit coins are dust The papers deadened your heart to the worthless sons and daughters you loved See you later, hey man, see you later Your cards falling down around you like dead birds and the masses holler at you, hey man, see you later Stay put for the let down Your dead are laughing in your face your skins a mottled tan Keep moving past the empty houses Keep your head way down See you later, hey man, see you later Your cards falling down around you like dead birds and the masses holler at you, hey man, see you later You burnt off our wings as you turned towards the grave the holler in your ear is you're done

Caught standing still at the drop If I run will this thing come and crush me Hold on, come talk to us But if I run I swear it doesn't mean I'm done When these lines are constantly redrawn How do I get my head above the water line Everyone does everything wrong Move into the light, love when dawn crawls over this dark night Until we scratch the constellations out Until we're crawling, harried and defended Until we're home There's not a hope in hell this thing can touch us Just watch me hold the lines Why is it a lie if it helps you survive? Underneath it all is a foundation of what you thought you knew and what you thought you owned I'll dive into the sun for you and steal the flames and paint a sun into this dark night

A dead kiss stolen from busted lips A last waltz stumbled on broken hips They force us into the overground where I live under the lamb Somehow they'll make a fist of this with little sense of grace and a twisted wit They'll force us out of the underground I'll live under the lamb Somehow they'll make a mess of this and kill shapes made out of sound Run into the carnival Feed offa the animals Can I repeat the dosage when the poisons start to sweat in the medicine? You leap into the comical Fall far down below into the mezzanine Somehow I'll still be majoring and I live under the lamb Can't even read this slow You can't sell me something I can't read

Grey lights flicker as I abandon this ship for burning land you lay under the amber leather and hide Oh, we know we are we are nothing but the sum parts of chemical and bones Oh, we know we are we are nothing but the remnants of stupid animals I span far overhead the sky is out of line Horizons thunder as I wipe blood from the cold cracks of my hands Cut out my tongue and toss it into the first mouth that can catch it and say something warm enough to fake our way through this land and cut out my tongue and toss it can't catch it and say...

My friends, I'm waiting for you to tell me off, for constantly correcting all the minor rites and liberties of mine, My love, I'm waiting for you to hold me up and dust me down for battles that I've yet to win, lose or throw Gotta lease a life, gotta a reckoning Take your second chance, take it on the chin Make a better life, make it on your own Let your medicine, take you over When you're ready, come down, home I stretch my arms out and catch the breeze my fingertips carve out a flight path, I rise too fast Oh my heart, this audio is out of time Can't slow my heart enough to count the beat over this drone My friends, I'm waiting for you to tell me off, for constantly correcting all the minor rites and liberties of mine, My love, I'm ready for you to stretch my wings and rise with me Above the scum below, above the scum below

Hold on to your life With all of your might Don't feed me to the lions Rub gold into my lines Caught a break at last a chance to resurrect rewards of men A double feature, killing fields of happiness for half your stance Buckle down the ships reward is over bound with hordes of love The forced approval overwhelms all your damned and dusted remains Failure to engage will see to our fate Desperate for shards of light Hopeless useless race But start to tear the fortress down and disregard the rules you've learnt We'll overwhelm with common sense and build a home thats meant for us We'll colour in the cornerstones in pastel shades or red and green We'll desecrate our world for fun and lose ourselves before we're born

Your smile saved me from falling in with the worst of my kind and your arrival has given me a lifeline for wonder and faith I see my self through your eyes For hope and joy I promise that i've got your back In my arms you disappear You're my infinite gift We see ourselves We see our selves It's love for the sake of love With wonder and joy I see myself through your eyes With hope and heart I promise that i've got your back We see ourselves We see ourselves as overwhelmed and self possessed with what We thought was wrong and right but in your eyes I see a different kind of light and i'm surprised how little anything else means to me You're better than anything else I could need

What to do with the middle of your life when the handle of the knife thats twisting in your backs got a jewel for your first, a jewel for your last If you're following the pattens then your following the waves of your blood How can you save them when you're already under fire I find it easier when i'm flailing around You did it to yourself 2nd place, not the same as 2nd last but you're happy in the middle, you can laugh it up alone, you can laugh alone, laugh alone, laugh alone It'll make it easier to take you down And there's no contesting for this throne, when you're following the patterns and you're following the waves of your blood How can you save them when you're already under fire I find it easier when i'm running around Save it - never Caught it - sever Load it - never Blooded - forever

Love, fall out of our clothes so that I might dress you again The map of this irishman is the wells of your skin and bone The covers off, the language is old We're cutting distance Where the lands fold when does a man come into his own? I threw the bones I found your clothes in the undergrowth I loaded the arms I took your hand and we disappeared These little creature's won't wait for us to receive them home Duch little damage, there's not a hint there was anything This little bird it's broken wings it's damaged voice it's only song is its avenue, Where are you little blue? We found you asleep in the undergrowth We took you home and we disappeared We learnt the words

Black mountains loom into my sightline as the cabin shakes in time The morning shards of light peek through the blinds The hostess walks away I won't know where to stand in the event of a pressure drop Somebody pull me out of these flames Somebody teach me how to float I spread my ashes across the skyline I deevolve and dive straight for the grave No-one comes out for me Somebody pull me out of these flames Somebody teach me how to float I whistle as we climb I sing as we float The cabins hanging upside down My fingers are cold My nails are frayed and scraping at the air and down, down, but I cant feel my thumbs We're floating away

Anamalyze our animal lives anamalyze our animal life Never say never told I was ashamed of the words words that I didn't know How to say no Living in lines and wasting our times Some of us were made for our lives Someones got something for the summons on your soul I can see, no I can't see the lines Million of pieces thrown to the mices I can see, no I can't see, i can see the line First steps are faltered and first words are lost Your last breath is doubted but your last words a must Circle up your lies and line 'em up to die Some of us can't see for the pennies on our eyes Most of us were made for our lives

Your valley drowns in dusted, open arms Money spills from a mouth with broken words The names are carved in sand and then they're tossed The hopes are tattered, enveloped in a rust Your guilt consumes til you soldered to your fate and all around you is a world that gathers dust Forced nostalgia will keep your cautious life in dividends and stipends til you die You want a crooked scene for all the easy prey That dastardly conviction is gonna kill you So sorry sorry but those awful things you've done will haunt you to the bottom of your landslide Each word left out leaves room for more lies Dead again I admit I was out of line A dilletante in drag and dye and as my mouth just spat it out I meant every word of the lie Lies devour light from the hearts of mankind I'm soooooooo sorry

If I carry you asleep over the pits of snakes and desperate constructions of joylessness in men will you wake up with magic in your heart and keep a tight hold? Oceans can sing to me as you dance your way through the shards of dust caught in strands of light that make you laugh endlessly and for me I've yet to see anything less than joy in you Hold tight little one Everyone does everything wrong As light bends through the sky a rainbow illuminates lives in time To see them at their best it makes it all worthwhile BUT PUT THE SCISSORS DOWN This thundercloud is full of heart attacks every time you reach for me

about

The Dudley Corporation Dublin, Ireland

The Dudley Corporation are Joss, Mark and Dudley.

Dublin gents with 4 LPs under their decaying belts.

In brief, they play short rock songs with wit, verve, romance and booksmarts.

Their shows are notoriously frenzied, visceral and exciting affairs with one song careering into another or stopping on a sixpence, as they say in football parlance.

They are quite old.
