Track Name: Sister Anne
A beaten up old gate in red cracked paint
Distant lights that flicker out to Sea
Windswept promenades, adorning old postcards
Birdsong braying dogs and bumble bees
We're winding up old clocks and dusting shelves
Edmund stumps up cash to pay the bills
The sisterhood is thriving, with new recruits arriving day by day
In a steady stream - it's a dream

Let Sister Anne draw her conclusions
Just air the vestry mow the lawn
It's the norm, don't let anybody tell you otherwise

Pebbles from the beach on window sills
Sip yesterday's communion wine until
Sunsets quite amazing, the chapel cats are lazing
They've been chasing little squeakers under pews - pay them their dues

Let Sister Anne draw her conclusions
Just air the vestry mow the lawn
It's the norm, don't let anybody tell you otherwise

As the congregation rises
A collective breath is drawn
Coffee mornings, jumble sales
And for some the search goes on
As the voices lift as one
So the lost are slowly drawn
To Edmund's awnings
They're adorning summer lawns

Let Sister Anne cast her aspersions
Just air the vestry mow the lawn
It's the norm, don't let anybody tell you otherwise
Just be wise
Track Name: Dusk Bird
Trade blows with a foregone conclusion
As the sunlight strangles the dust
Laid low with forgotten believers
There a cloud hung heavy with rust

Someone's singing that the grass is much greener
But the sapphire's still hidden in husk
Day is breaking like a tide on the sullen
But the birds still gather at dusk
Birds still gather at dusk

Rain blows on intrepid illusions
As a red glow filters the trust
Ghost crows still in silver collusion
On a lost road claiming the just

Someone's singing that the grass is much greener
But the sapphire's still hidden in husk
Day is breaking like a tide on the sullen
But the birds still gather at dusk
Birds still gather at dusk

Someone's singing that the grass is much greener
But the sapphire's still hidden in husk
Day is breaking like a tide on the sullen
But the birds still gather at dusk
Birds still gather at dusk
Birds still gather at dusk
Birds still gather at dusk
