Level your fretting. I won't be forgetting the flush of your face
When I lifted you level to me and a wattle tree framed your body.
In whispers welling with the dope of a new Spring
You said "Kill me a dynasty or our love won't mean a thing..."
A bullet for a diamond ring.
A favour promised
A promise delivered and more to you -
It's only a war I'll be back to your shore before you know it I'm gone,
Then I'll cover you body.
And if you have to go please go lightly,
Keep it to a foxtrot whether he's a fox or not.
Keep it cold, keep all your heat for me -
I'll be needing it for when I'm cold you see?
Let your children remind you of me
Whether by another or by the ghost in me in you -
There goes my baby.
I would think of you and a palmtree would cover your body.
You - in love and war we are bound by a law,
it goes to you and then to yours to recover my body.
She bound me up and hugged me
'O how the mother loves thee'
She covered my body
In a ragged flag and bloody -
O not on your life.

    "Well it's my very little wonder and it's one that I will keep,
    But you can take it with you if it helps you when you're trying to sleep...

    Young ladies of means will say "I am, I am, I am, I am, I am",..."
  • Song in the Key of Chance
    "In the chest of a dealer hammers and smelts a foul charge,?
    Of a rank Summer Saturday here, drunk on domestic beer,?
    the burnt English girls bray like mares, the men leer like snakes...?
    O there's no faith in this article baby, no truth and no lie lie lie lie,?..."
  • Sunstroke House
    "O fraudulent mirror, O rank rainbow toad,
    I'd break apart too, if I knowed what you knowed,
    I'd fall from the wall, I'd leap from the road,
    You take cover in the clover, you don't shoulder the load...."
  • There Is No Such Place
    "There is no such place, o yes I have seen it too
    Just a little different from how you do,
    A river winding blue among the dunes and a marble bed
    A sun that doesn't set but settles...."
  • Brundisium
    "They married, a dandy and a back alley tough,
    on the foreshore while kids in the needling rough,
    stayed low, in, and laid till they'd had enough
    of the somersaulting hot roll of revolting September...."
  • Maroondah Resevoir
    "To be,
    A bee, a moth.
    Four wings spread for the soft last touch
    Of glory sun,..."
