Politicians aren't the People I meet

Politicians aren't the People I meet

Politicians aren’t the People I meet exhibits yet another slight change in Devine Lies ever emerging style and is probably their most accessible and lyrical to date. A mixture of songs about diverse topics ranging from scathing Political Comment to plaintive love (or perhaps lust!), Politicians aren’t the People I meet really is an album to listen and enjoy.

Who could not agree with the words and sentiment of the title track, Politicians aren’t the People I meet. Sharp comment indeed, as indeed is Save it for Yourself. These gems rub shoulders with tracks such as I Want You, a song about lust, pure and simple.

Song Lyrics:

I Want To Have It Easy

I Want To Have It Easy
Black Days Forever night Crossroads of doubt Grey tones Defied by light Logic’s last rout

Why is it all so tough I want to have it easy You can’t get enough I want to have it easy I want to have you easy

Loves lost Final days Who says you can’t Have it all ways Loves no Singular affair Hiding in Its twilight lair I want to have it easy I want to have you easy

Scene’s set Final stand Plateau of chance Weapons drawn Trenches spanned Final dance

Why is it all so tough I want to have it easy You can’t get enough I want to have it easy I want to have you easy

Sounds Like Heaven

Sounds Like Heaven
Picture your lips Kissing mine Sounds like heaven Picture our hands Entwined Sounds like heaven

All we’ll need to get by Is make sure Love’s on our side Sounds like heaven

Picture a day Alone at Last Sounds like heaven Picture a night Unsurpassed Sounds like heaven

All we’ll need to get by Is make sure Love’s on our side Sounds like heaven

Hold my hand Keep it tight Hold my hand Think of tonight We won’t let them Shake our joy No matter what tricks They employ

Picture a night Of passion and charm Sounds like heaven Picture the dawn Waking in my arms Sounds like heaven

All we’ll need to get by Is make sure Love’s on our side Sounds like heaven

Dreams

Dreams
Wheels crunch loud On gravel stones Bailey runs From Ginger’s moans Jackie’s dress Clings so tight Nothing to hide That hideous sight Mosaic tiles Under broken feet Romeo looks down Hardly discreet Catching rats That’s Mephy’s job Catching crabs Makes people throb

I don’t want to share Dreams They’re mine I don’t have any spare

Threadbare cushions On broken chairs Dog chuckles But no one cares My friend arrives He’s totally bare Barcelona Was his affair Always thought Just my fault Revenge is sweet With a pinch of salt Doors flap madly On a desert beach Windows cracked Hard to reach

Dreams I don’t want to share Dreams They’re mine I don’t have any spare

Seize the Day

Seize the Day
A jeweled head Clasped in your hand A rapier Resting on the stand Grab the light Seize the day

White sails Against a backdrop so blue Forced by winds To world’s new Grab the night Seize the day

Pounding surf Rocks betray As the tiny boats Pull away

What lies beyond The distant shore Paradise Or the final encore

Best intentions Can be easily swayed With the promise Money conveys Grab the light Seize the day

Stoop so low Buy in slaves Increase your profit Conscience doesn’t pay Grab the night Seize the day

Pounding surf Two worlds collide Greedy minds You cannot hide

What lies beyond The swirling surf Paradise Or scorched earth

I Want You

I Want You
I see the Sun See the sun On your face It reminds me I want you

I see the stars Stars reflection In your eyes They remind me I want you

I dream everyday Your lithe body Your gentle way I need To live that dream I don’t know If my scheming Can come true Maybe I imagined I want you

I think of how close How close We came Memories remind me I want you

Passion to see To see what you Thought of me Passion reminds me I want you

I dream everyday Your lithe body Your gentle way I need To live that dream I don’t know If my scheming Can come true Maybe I imagined I want you

Politicians aren't the People I meet

Politicians aren't the People I meet
Walking Through shady streets Wondering Who I’ll meet Luck’s been Out of late Probably Someone I hate Who knows What’s in store Gordon Brown or Some old whore Would you Know who was who Easy Gordon will make you spew

Been down on my luck Been down in the streets Politicians aren’t The people I meet

Wake me When the nightmares gone Leave me Until the break of dawn

Went down To the park To see if my Bad luck would last Had a drink With soapy Joe Resident since The last snow I asked him If all was clear He told me Don’t get too near Yesterday When he awoke He found Mandelson Stealing from his cloak

Been down on my luck Been down in the streets Politicians aren’t The people I meet

Wake me When the nightmares gone Leave me Until the break of dawn

Had to Try on impulse Somewhere Somewhere else The Underground Was my only chance To meet someone In a sweet ambience I passed the buskers On my way down To the Platform Into town At last I thought My lucks is in Sitting there Was Idi Amin

Been down on my luck Been down in the streets Politicians aren’t The people I meet

Thank god I’m still sane Never want to see A politician again

Prying Minds

Prying Minds
Seems Seems like a story Seems To good to be true Seems Like I love you Seems Like you love me too

If only we could Get away sometime Far from people’s Prying minds

Try Try to remember Try To think back when We Were both young We Were just friends

If only we could Get away sometime Far from people’s Prying minds

Time Time just fly’s by Time Slips through our hands We’re Just getting older We’ve Got to make some plans

If only we could Get away sometime Far from people’s Prying minds

Life’s Life’s full of decisions Life Ours to compromise Enough Of doing the right thing Let’s leave Don’t apologize

If only we could Get away sometime Far from people’s Prying minds

Sanctimony

Sanctimony
The small boy’s in pain His mother’s gone He can’t explain World’s gone mad Protection’s not a game It’s a shame

The World’s gone mad The World’s so sad Protection’s not a game Who’s to blame It’s a shame It’s a shame

Wasted away Sickly every day Refused every test Told through ignorance she be blessed No protection No birth control Catholic Church You need to search your soul

Her Husband went first Their sanctimony Ensured his curse World’s gone mad The World’s so sad Protection’s not a game It’s a shame

The World’s gone mad The World’s so sad Protection’s not a game Who’s to blame It’s a shame It’s a shame

Please come back

Please come back
What have I done Now you’ve cut and run Never meant to hurt you Never meant to spun you

Please come back Try and forget Please come back You’ll have no regrets

Just a moment of madness Cause of so much sadness I should never have been tempted How foolishly I acted

Please come back Try and forget Please come back You’ll have no regrets

I know I said it before But this time I mean it even more I’ll never cheat again Tie me up with a ball and chain

Please come back Try and forget Please come back You’ll have no regrets

Justine

Justine
Hollow eyes Sunken in her face Bedraggled clothing Could have been lace Once had dreams Ambition to live Everything’s gone She can’t forgive

Justine You only see the world today Justine Could have come with me far away

Your Life Has been so cruel Always had to Obey the rules You had a chance To break away Turned it down Decided to stay

Justine You only see the world today Justine Could have come with me to Mandalay

The girl I loved She’s long gone Worn away Haggard withdrawn Had to marry Had to have kids Didn’t argue Now you barely exist

Justine You only see the world today Justine Should have swum with me in Montego Bay

Plastic Cheese

Plastic Cheese
You think Westlife sound like Mozart You think Spice Girls are cool You think Harry Potters by Shakespeare You think Einstein’s a fool

Ten GCSE’s And a Labour Degree What are you aiming to be

You’re just like Plastic Cheese Give me Cheddar Plastic Cheese

You’re just like Plastic Cheese Give me Roquefort Plastic Cheese

You think Mandela plays for Chelsea You think Big Brother’s for real You think Hello’s essential reading You think Gucci’s a steal

Ten GCSE’s And a Labour Degree What are you aiming to be

You’re just like Plastic Cheese Give me Cheddar Plastic Cheese

You’re just like Plastic Cheese Give me Roquefort Plastic Cheese

Morticians Friend

Morticians Friend
Watch her Eyes Watch her smile She seems so cool See her move See her scheme She’s no fool Wooed him with her charms Putty in her evil arms Ruthless till the end Gracie the Morticians friend

She won’t rest She won’t wait Sets all the trends People starve People die Caviar for her friends Knew he was past his prime Vain with little time Ruthless till the end Gracie the Morticians friend

Gucci Bag Gucci hat Ferragmo shoes She spends more On one trip Her subjects just cue Grabbed her a Private Jet Go Shopping with her favorite pet Ruthless till the end Gracie the Morticians friend

Keep him lean Keep him keen Like some sick old dog Used her sons Used her youth Covered him like a fog 40 years between them both Told him he looks young on Oath Ruthless till the end Gracie the Morticians friend
