Track Name: Up in this Tower
Up In This Tower
written by Halfblind Henry

Honey why d´ya hide
hide away from me
Honey why d´ya hide
hide away from me
What happened to the time
When you seemed close to me

What's the name of this game
this game we play to lose
What's the name of this game
this game we play to lose
It's impossible to move
no matter which way we choose

Honey I´m alone
dying slowly by degrees
Honey I´m alone
dying slowly by degrees
heart and soul are locked
and I have lost the keys

Up in this tower
I feel closer to the sky
But all the time I wonder why
what's been going down
since I got high
made me feel so low

What am I doing on this stage
Always missings my cues
What am I doing on this stage
Playing a part I didn't choose
Groping my way
whistling the blindfold blues

Honey can´t you talk
can´t you talk to me
Honey can´t you talk
can´t you talk to me
Honey I´m confused
by life´s simplicity
Track Name: Last Night I Heard the Devil Crying
Last Night I Heard The Devil Crying

Lyrics by Halfblind Henry

Last night I heard the devil crying
He seemed overwhelmed with grief
Me and my broken heart just stood there sighing
And I thought of you as such a lousy thief

No-one here will take me to the dances
They all look twice as mad as me
So I'll stand up and take my chances
In the waiting room it’s hard to find good company

It's funny how the morning breeze tries to sweep away
the silent sadness of the dawn
The tall and open window helps me greet the day
like the last proud flower on a drying lawn

I still recall the day I saw you smiling
though I don't remember much of what you said
Your laughing eyes were so beguiling
I felt like I was rising from the dead

Now I'm making plans just to keep my mind from reeling
But there is no place left but the open sea
I put my trust in that hole in the ceiling
as I watch the devil spill his tea

They came and gave me a white jacket
Then they helped me put it on
They said "Calm down, don't you start no racket.
We are here to help you, son."
Track Name: What There Is
What There Is

lyrics by Halfblind Henry

I’m trying to make out what there is
between you and me
but it's like measuring the distance
between the shore and the sea

I guess that you don’t need me
to be your change of fate
I’m sure you can do without
my solemn rhymes of love and hate

Now that everything has stopped
there are no more ties that bind
we could start all over
leave the past behind
but there’s something that stays on my mind


And who am I to think
I could tell you what to do
We both know there ain't a lot
that I can do for you

I guess that you don’t need me
to claim that I'm the one you need
Another bold pretender
waiting for his mighty deed

Now that everything has stopped
there are no more ties that bind
we could start all over
leave the past behind
but there’s something that stays on my mind



I've always been a stranger
to you or to anyone
never knowing where to stay
never knowing when to run

Now that everything has stopped
there are no more ties that bind
we could start all over
leave the past behind
but there’s something that stays on my mind
Track Name: Demolition Blues
Demolition Blues

lyrics by Halfblind Henry

I got them blues in a bundle
and I can't untie the knot
Big Mama I've got to ramble
leave behind everything I got

It's into trouble I will stumble
any way I turn
Every road I walk will crumble
Every bridge I cross will burn

It's demolition time
the wreckers are standing at the door
It's demoliton time
Evrery time I look up, Mama, something's gone that was there before


Makes me wanna start a riot
each time I turn on the radio blues
drives me mad and I can’t deny it
when I get my fair share of the news

I got them blues in a bottle
and I'll drink till I had my fill
The old machine is gonna rattle
this ain't the time for keeping still

It's demolition time
Can you hear them knocking on the wall?
It's demolition time
That ain't the wind a-whisperin, Mama, that's the hissing of the wrecking ball


I got them blues in my pockets
they help me telling high from low
The drills ain't shaking in their sockets
That's something you might want to know

Call it fate or call it wonder
when there's one star left to wish upon
Whatever's drifting in from over yonder
there's no time to go back to where you started from

It's demolition time
looks like the golden days are through
It's demoliton time
Ain't no use in talking, Mama, everything is said and it's all true
