about

On The Stoop Sydney, Australia

Don't be fooled. Just when you thought it was safe to feel charmed by the lilt of a melody and the gentle wit of the words On the Stoop impales your ears with the unexpected. Sometimes the music hurtles at you with such velocity that you have to fight the urge to duck, but always the warmth, good humour and zany imagination draws you in again. ... more

Track Name: The Invisible Man
You wanna meet me for a coffee
But that aint strong enough for me
You know I won't be drinking coffee
When you're sitting across from me
You got you're skeleton in the closet
You see him walking down the street
But don't give me a reason
Don't give me a reason
Just move your head and move your feet

And when you can see to the heavens
And when you can't see to the stars
You're not and angel or a devil
You got the smoke but not the fire
The devil doesn't need inviting
To come a-walking out of hell
You gotta keep him in the tomb
But like the elephant in the room

I'm the Invisible Man x 4
I said goddam
I got my balls in my hand
Hey hey
The come to take me away

They say in hell your is burning
They say redemption's in the stars
The evil doers get their medicine
The good one's get a golden star
That's why the sky is full of sparkles
For all the lessons learned
The angels flapping round in heaven
An all the evil sinners burned
And when you're tired of pretending
To be all warm and safe in bed
You take your chances with the city
Go out and paint the town red
And then you're hanging with the bent ones
And all the ones that missed the boat
You're not an angel or a vampire, you're not a demon or a ghost

You're the invisible man x4
I said goddam
I got my balls in my hand
Hey hey
The come to take me away
Track Name: Subway
Oh let us take a long vacation
My funny friend
My one and only love
Down to the subterranean station
Under the world
Under the world above
For down in the subway's where we'll spend our time
We'll work on creation as the trains go by..
And if they ask me what I'm thinking
I say of you, my one and only..

Come see the view it's so provoking
Come see the crowds, they flash before our eyes
But from that life we are eloping
We'll find a place, far from the endless cries
We'll let go of trouble as the days go by
And I'll promise to let go of my old ways, by and by
And if they ask me what I'm thinking
I say of you, my one and only love

I'm just thinking, dreaming of you....
Track Name: The Sun
Everyone's got memories
Something old to remind them
That they come from far away
Far beyond the sea
And mine is an empty horizon
Enfolding the afternoon sun going down
We watched and we saw as it sank into the sea
Now I'm wondering why the dreams I've been having are haunted
Why my sleep is a darkness that blackens out the sun
But the sun comes up all over the world
The sun comes up all over the world
The sun comes up all over the world
As the lights go down in Brooklyn

Now I'm wondering why the dreams I've been having are haunted
Why my sleep is a darkness that blackens out the sun
But the sun comes up all over the world
The sun comes up all over the world
The sun comes up all over the world
As the lights go down in Brooklyn
Track Name: The War Of Terror
We're spending by the billions
And dying by the millions
But the companies are making squillions
They're charging by the hour
In The War Of Terror
In The War Of Terror

We terrify the oceans
We terrify the birds
We terrify the trees
And terrify the world with words
In The War Of Terror
In The War Of Terror
In The War Of Terror x2

I'm terrified of walking sown the street
We terrify the kids to go to sleep
But the terror seems to come in many forms and many ways
I'm terrified of people that eat too much mayonaise
In the war of terror

We're terrified of Arabs but they're terrified of Jews
So we've got the world in handcuffs
We're tightening the screws in the war of terror
In The War Of Terror

And old man terror's got the whole world in his hands
He's banking on a comback with the merchants in the stands
In The War Of Terror
In The War Of Terror x 2

Consume all that you can remains the rule
And then complain about the rising cost of fuel
But the rich don't want to send their sons to war
Why send the rich when you can send the poor?
To The War of Terror x 4
