about

'Rejects and Misfits' is a selection of songs and pieces that never had a place anywhere but seemed like they should belong somewhere. This is that place. It includes songs that were intended to appear on the never released 'Pathos and Exaltation (Part 2)', and some early rejects from the work currently in progress, 'Threes'.

Track Name: 25.12
Oh no, not again
I sit at my piano and try to stop weeping
It's Christmas again
The trees are all up and the tinsel is twinkling
But I see children out there who have never known Santa
And breathe fear as they pray to their god that their lives will get better

Let's all get drunk
I need a whisky to remind me I'm living
Drowned in plastic junk
And they say that the joy is all in the giving
But I see children out there who have never known Santa
And breathe fear as they pray to their god that their lives will get better

Give me my presents, the bigger the better
Moan to your kids it's the wrong kind of weather
Spend too much money, I know you'll feel better
Tell me your news in a round robin letter

Oh no, not again
I've decked the halls and I've killed all the holly
It's Christmas again
I'm tired of being told it's a time to be jolly
When I see children out there who have never known Santa
And breathe fear as they pray to their god that their lives will get better

Let's all get drunk
I pour a whisky but the bottle is empty
Drowned in plastic junk
An obscene display in a world that has plenty
When I see children out there who have never known Santa
And breathe fear as they pray to their god that their lives will get better
Track Name: C.D.M. - FO mix
How long since I met you?
You've been there all of my life
I can never forget you
You're my husband, and wife
And I need you now
Yes I need you now

You're the worst kind of lover
The kind I should hate
Tempting me like no other
I'm the fish to your bait, yeah
And I need you now
Yes I need you now

So take off your coat now
Want your taste on my lips
But I know where you're going...
Down on my hips

So I'm saying goodbye now
Thanks, but I'll pass
Knowing you'll never leave me
A lifetime on this perfect, farcical size 10 (right!)
And I need you now
Track Name: Lost
Help me to face my darkest fears
Hold me when I suppress my tears
Teach me to know and to understand
When I may never find the answers by your hand
Exorcise these ghosts, lest my soul obey another's path

I've lost my way
Lost my way

Why must I always feel this pain?
Why do you taunt and show disdain?
Cancel all these thoughtless games!
While rivers flow with tears denied 
Rock this boat, or run and hide?
Twist the blade and kill my grief
Rue the day you entered my life

I've lost my way
Lost my way

I've lost my way
Lost my way
Track Name: Ten Million Little Flowers
What do you think of the world now
As you lie beneath your scarlet blanket?
Ten million little flowers mark the empty place, ripped apart, laid waste

Intangible scar, locked in time
Intangible scar, locked in time

Did you cry, cry, cry for your mother
As the stench of bloodied mud, the stench of bloodied mud
Permeated your every breath?
And in this place, did God walk beside you as you held onto life
Only the tiniest thread between you and death?

1917

Did you cry, cry, cry for your mother 
As the stench of bloodied mud, the stench of bloodied mud...

Intangible scar, locked in time
Intangible scar, locked in time

1917
Track Name: Piano With Me
Remember pictures in silver frames
Forgotten faces, missing names
Then I see you playing piano
Never knew you played piano like me
Oh Daddy

Remember stories of the stage
And people laughing, you entertained
And they say you played piano
And your father played piano like you
Oh Daddy, play piano with me
Oh Daddy, play piano with me

Remember voices from the past
On dusty tape reels, built to last
But I never heard piano
Close my eyes to hear piano from you
Oh Daddy, play piano with me
Oh Daddy, play piano with me
Oh Daddy, play piano with me
Oh, play piano with me
Track Name: Mary
Can you feel his arms around you?
Do you see his love surround you?
When you close your eyes and see him smiling in the sun
Do you shed a tear for your precious son?

When you hear his voice, does it hurt you?
Will all sense of time desert you?
When your head is clear, do you see his face on a magazine
From another time, pictures never seen?

Oh Mary, I know I've never met you
Can't imagine the hell that you've been through
From a woman with a child of her own who just wants to thank you
Wouldn't be standing here at all if it wasn't for you
And the things that you do
So thank you, thank you Mary

If I was in your shoes
I'd selfishly hold him close to me
Thank god it's down to you
You recognise how we cherish him
In unfinished Sketches bury me
And his Morning Theft will carry me, oh Mary 
Track Name: If Your Heart Falls Silent
You feel kinda low now
Try to forgive the flame that once burned in your heart
You think how it's funny just trying to live
But life had you right from the start

Stuck in the middle
Your mind goes its own way while your life takes another
Piggy in the middle, you might say
You're pulled in all directions
Never have time to discover where your heart really lies
But deep down you know it, you're not being true

And who is this person called you?

And your heart lies nearly silent now
Beaten down by a life that you choose
Hang on, hang on
And don't let go
If you heart falls silent will anybody know
Or see it in your eyes?
You are dead inside
Extinguished by labours for all things material

Life can be a riddle taking you its own way
While you struggle against it
Always in the middle day by day
You plan your insurrection
Knowing full well that it leads to your untimely demise
But deep down you know it, you're not being true

And who is this person called you?

And your heart lies nearly silent now
Beaten down by a life that you choose
Hang on, hang on
And don't let go
If your heart falls silent will anybody know
Or see it in your eyes?
You are dead inside
Extinguished by labours for all things material

Bruised and broken in your mind
Life has passed you by 
And waved its last goodbye to tears that are hiding inside your soul

You feel kinda low now
Try to forgive the flame that once burned in your heart
You think how it's funny just wanting to live
But life had you right from the start
Right from the start
Track Name: Matthew
Small boy sitting in a crowded room
Friends all around him, but he's all alone
None of them can comprehend 
Or take his pain, or help him mend
But you know, Matthew, you will be OK in the end
If you fly to him

Fly to him, Matthew
Fly to him, Matthew
Fly to him, Matthew 

As long as dragonflies are seen to fly
Know that you will never, never need to cry
'Cause even though he's out of sight
He's watching you, yeah, day and night
And one day, Matthew, you will see him again
And you'll fly to him

Fly to him, Matthew
Fly to him, Matthew
Fly to him, Matthew 

Matthew, the voices you're hearing are not him
You think that he's calling, you're just trying to find him
Don't be afraid now you know that he's gone
He will live forever if you can move on
And your mother's eyes will find him in you
In you
Till you fly to him
Fly, Matthew

Fly to him, Matthew
Fly to him, Matthew
