[Canzoni di ieri] The Veils / Nux Vomica



The Veils - Nux Vomica (2006)


What say you, Lord
For the olive boys down in the house of corrections
As they try for love and any form of ascension

Am I on the right train headed in the wrong direction

What say you, Lord
What say you, Lord



Am I living wrong

Do you see a long road with no one on it
And the right of men that you learnt only to forget
You see my sad wife and my high margin of profit
But you don't care at all
You don't care
At all



What say you, Lord

Now that they're breeding all our animals insane
And the remedy is growing harder to obtain
There's a white horse running wild through the switch-cane
I can hear him now
And I feel him



'Til Kingdom come

Caught in this frenzy of elimination
Such an irreparable disintegration
My body's twitching with a ready expectation
For Kingdom come
My Kingdom
Come



What say you, Lord

Why is the truth of this so hard to unveil?
Though it's true I never knew what this would entail
From the hands of Christ to the heads of the Daily Mail
I'll see you all
And I'll raise you



Now what say you, all

I wonder when the light is brought up for sale
With the weight of love and the grace of the Baleen Whale
Will the severed Heads of State be at all curtailed
Will they be here at all -
Will they be dead and gone?



What say you Lord

Of the serpent-taled, forbidden fish of the harbours
And the ready-men, defiant drinkers and charmers
All lost and summoning the face of their fathers
Can you see thm now?
I can see 'em



What say you, all

Do I believe it if I do not want it
Do I lie alone and keeps my cold hands off it
Honey, it ain't hard to loose your grip in the midst of all of this
But it ain't far to fall
It's not far at all




Da NUX VOMICA (Rough Trade 2006)
