Candelabra 06:59
I caught him half out the door Lookin' halfway to dead Like the evenin' before He had it back in his head So he told me once more 'Bout his lady, and said: "She's after goin' downtown For to find her a man For to foolin' around So I'm after hatchin' a plan For to put in the ground Both them two if I can" Same old song sung again Wheels 'round & 'round like a cylinder spins We headed back in the bar A familiar tune Could be heard from afar Loaded by the light of the moon To the sound of guitars We sang Revolver Gun Blues Same old song sung again Wheels 'round & 'round like that cylinder spins
Regret lies surrounding Our previous meeting However so touching The moment was fleeting And though it left stoking An ember still burning Tonight I am leaving And won't be returning
Three stones in the wishing well Three stones from the mountain where I cast my spell And now I see evil Four spokes on the spinning wheel And there ain't no way of telling you the way I feel Because now I see evil In my eyes, in my eyes Five bones from the seven crypts Nine thrones in the throne-room of the thirteen kings And now I see evil Blood spurting out of every seam And there ain't no way of waking from this endless dream Of hell - I see evil In my eyes, in my eyes

Gently, gently Go a little slower Careful with your load there How much can you shoulder? Quickly, quickly Come a little faster Pay heed to your lady Bow down to your master Whoever makes the rules Hides within a citadel Whoever pays the minstrels Hears the songs they wrote themselves Whoever holds this bridle Holds it tight and very well Onward, onward Almost at the castle And then when I get there Was it worth the hassle? Ponder, ponder Are my labours over? Or is my lot in life to Forever play the fool? However far I've wandered However far I fell Whatever price is offered There's nothing left to sell Whoever holds this bridle Has become increasingly harder to tell


An album on the occasion of Chapeau's 20th year; with the first four tracks being comprised of new material, and the latter four tracks being reinterpretations of previous recordings.

Two decades on and even the most ardent skeptic must surely now concede that bad music remains the only good noise.
