Live version (Electric Bear)

This song
This song is about the questions we ask
When everything is really really down
When you start turning round
Putting your hands together
And staring at the sky
This is a song
It's gonna be a single that's coming out in November
And this is a song called
Credo


Here we go

I watch the TV every night
I stay awake by satellite
I hope and pray that the nightmares
Stay away today

An oily shroud on a coral reef
There's a black cloud hanging over me
When I hit on the remote
The programme stays the same

Credo

Credo

An assegai slick with sweat and blood
A shotgun barks at a rabid dog
A shallow grave hugs a highway
Beneath a bleaching sun

A mother screams and a baby cries
The memory gone before the blood has dried
A needle pricks the conscience
To help it fade away

C'mon

It don't mean nothing
It don't mean nothing
It don't mean nothing
It don't mean nothing to me

A tattered tramp tacks a windy wynd
To close a crowded circle and a brazier's light
A man becomes a mountain
In the falling snow

When cancer sucks a young girl's breast
A company chains a young man's soul
When the coal dust stole
My granddad's breath away
One day

It don't mean nothing to me

The more you scream the less you hear
Or that's how it used to be
But I just can't tell the difference
Any more these days

The open lips of an altar boy
A planet spins in a silent void
The options are ever fewer
On the ground these days

Thank you

So how are ya?

Yeah

There's something special about comin' home
I wish this one was the last one
But it's the last UK gig of this year
And what better place to come to
A new year's soirée

And to be honest
I'm gonna be more than happy to see the back of this bloody year
It's been
It's been quite a test actually boys and girls
It's um
What was it Emai Kaizen started
Tits out for the boys eh?
You shoulda come earlier on and you coulda got the backstage pass
