1. The days of Pearly Spencer

A tenement, a dirty street
Walked and worn by shoeless feet
Inside it's long and so complete
Watched by a shivering sun
Old eyes in a small child's face
Watching as the shadows race
Through walls and cracks and leave no trace
And daylight's brightness shuns

The days of Pearly Spencer
The race is almost run

Nose pressed hard on frosted glass
Gazing as the swollen mass
On concrete fields where grows no grass
Stumbles blindly on
Iron trees smother the air
But withering they stand and stare
Through eyes that neither know nor care
Where the grass is gone

The days of Pearly Spencer
The race is almost run

Pearly where's your milk white skin
What's that stubble on your chin
It's buried in the rot gut gin
You played and lost not won
You played a house that can't be beat
Now look your head's bowed in defeat
You walked too far along the street
Where only rats can run

The days of Pearly Spencer
The race is almost run

A tenement, a dirty street
Remember worn and shoeless feet
Remember how you stood to beat
The way your life had gone
So pearly don't you shed more tears
For those best forgotten years
Those tenements are memories
Of where you've risen from

The days of Pearly Spencer
The race is almost won

2. Take me down (the only way to ease my pain)

So many times I've wanted
To tell you how you make me feel inside
Too many days I've wasted
Torturing my soul with all those tears I've cried

You slowly bring me to despair
I try to run away and vanish in the air
But I still want you
For the rest of my life

Take me down, take me over
Break my heart in pieces till you drive me insane
Leave me on, now and forever
Play the game of love, the only way to ease my pain

All that I can hear from you
Are deadly words and never ending lie
Each day I try to break through
Broken promises flying to the sky

How could I trust you so blind?
I gave you everything, there's nothing left behind
But I still love you
For the rest of my time

Take me down, take me over
Break my heart in pieces till you drive me insane
Leave me on, now and forever
Play the game of love, the only way to ease my pain
