Track Name: Memento Mori
Fighting for milk, breaking bread,
I'm swinging with the Grateful Dead.
Dancing with the devil a church bell rings,
Won't you listen to the mourners sing?

Memento Mori, Memento Mori

Newspaper ink has stained your tongue,
Whilst calling for us to grab our guns.
Will you know what you're for,
As Old Father Time's rap-tatting at your door?

Memento Mori, Memento Mori.
Well, at least when I am dead, I'll be free.
Memento Mori.

Love the sinner, hate the sin,
You've got me mixed-and-a-muddled with my long lost twin.
He may use my blue eyes to see,
But, that kid's wrapped up in some debauchery,
Not me.

Memento Mori.

So, So Calamity Jones,
"Beware the Ides of March", the oracle moaned.
Brother, we've still got time,
To break some hearts and change some minds.

Memento Mori, Memento Mori.
Well, at least when I am dead, I'll be free.
Memento Mori.

My mother told me;
"Don't you stay out late tonight".
Because my body's shaking
As we dance in the moonlight.

Memento Mori, Memento Mori...
Roll on, Roll on.
Track Name: Goodbye, Artless Green
Goodbye, Artless Green you stayed too long.
I met you in a book, man and I gave you to a song.
The drums were getting louder and the mercury got low,
Say; "Goodbye, Artless Green",
I'm the car you didn't see at the end of the road.

Regret nothing more than the words you lack.
And, remove all the penance from the new blister pack.
I'll drop you at the entrance of the old Aral Sea,
Say; "Goodbye, Artless Green",
I'm the light you didn't see in that crudely painted scene.

Well, keep hold my jejune soul.
I'm not letting go, no more,
Letting go, no more, letting go...
My jejune soul.

Tearing through the stars on Rosetta's tail.
Boy, you fell asleep there, but no one could tell.
From the Atlas mountains i can just hear your call.
Reply, Artless Green;
"Goodbye to thee. Farewell and so long".

Well, keep hold my jejune soul.
I'm not letting go, no more,
Letting go, no more, letting go...
My jejune soul.

Well, keep hold my jejune soul.
I'm not letting go, no more,
Letting go, no more, letting go...
