lyrics

The ink dries off and the words left permanent
The sentiment applies, but our motives are wasted
Time took a back seat to the hands that pushed us away
As we settled for less than our values belied

Our feet worn and ragged, from all the miles beneath us
Our tongues torn and tattered, from all the fights we’ve had to have,
We never knew a limit, never drew ourselves a line,
But the minutes were our guidance, and our tears were lined with smiles

Cradled,
Arms held together like crayoned-in spider webs
Tangled,
Our skin seems to scream like a heart attack carnival

Take my hand, I’ll walk with you
I’ll make you forget all the things
You hate about yourself and I’ll
Start a million fights for you and make
You want my best ideas and take me home

So I’ll take a deep breath
And I’ll scream out your name
And I’ll dance around the room

And I’ll colour
In your laugh lines cos your smile has been dying
And I’ll make up
Histories for us in diaries we’ll never read
And the coastlines
That map your heart I’ll wander forever
But it’s freezing
In your own sadness when honesty takes over

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.
