Track Name: Neighbours Talk
Winner of the 2016 Ship and Anchor Song Writing Contest

lyrics
He stabbed the ground with a cold kitchen blade
Knealt in the fields amongst the bales of hay
A will to be heard a power undisturbed
We think the neighbours might talk

Mother sighed and sipped at her gin
Saw the mounds of attention headlines brought in
Listen close son listen well
All our neighbours can go straight to (Hell!)

(Chorus)
This God damn home it spins too fast
Knocking down what’s in its path
Of my opinion we can stop
This slab of blood, this lazy rock

So we dressed our best held our heads up high
Never shed a tear you must never let them see you cry
Say it’s pride, your will to be heard
These skeletons surround me, they tell me I’m absurd

(Chorus)
This God damn home it spins too fast
Knocking down what’s in its path
Of my opinion we can stop
This God damn home it spins too fast
Knocking down what’s in its path
And I don’t care if the neighbours talk
No I don’t care if the neighbours talk

(Instrumental)

Well it has no brakes no credence here
Runs on gas and it runs on fear
Unhinge the ground and open wide
Let us all climb deep inside

(Chorus)
This God damn home it spins too fast
Knocking down what’s in its path
Of my opinion we can stop
This God damn home it spins too fast
Knocking down what’s in its path
And I don’t care if the neighbours talk
No I don’t care if the neighbours talk
I don’t care if the neighbours talk (Repeat many times)
Track Name: McHollis & Holmes
ere at McHollis and Holmes
We found a crow frozen at the base of the tower
It’s wings spread out like someone you might know
From Sunday school or the man above your kitchen table

I showed the father saw my hands diseased
Sin and sickness burried in the breeze
That carried the bids spirit far from me

(Chorus)
Say your graces show your fears
The things they’ll teach you all for years
In the morning find the sheep
Pray to the Lord your soul to keep

Here at McHollis and Holmes
We found each other like fools in the basement
Our hands stretched out like morning mass
An attempt to cleanse one another

The pastor saw through the dim old bulbs
Boxed my ears and he cursed me out
Child save yourself with these simple words

(Chorus)
Say your graces show your fears
The things we’ll teach you all for years
Clean your sins and bare your soul
From down below

Say your graces show your fears
Hide your wicked soul for years
In the morning find the sheep
Pray the Lord your soul to keep

Say your graces show your fears
The things we’ll teach you all for years
Clean your sins and bare your soul
From down below

In the morning find the sheep
Pray the Lord your soul to keep
Clean your sins and bare your soul
Here at McHollis and Holmes
