The Way of the Muse by Paddy Garrigan and The Stroller Priests

Damn your eyes, I'd like to tell you some lies
about the troubles you think are your lot
Sometimes the pain we remember
is better than the lies we forgot
Lift your head and shake, if it were not for your sake
We should never have been here today
That's the way of the Muse, boy
– keep going 'till you get in her way

Young and small, he's no trouble at all
apart from all of his terror inside
Of God as he appears in the Bible
(as opposed to what he's like in real life)
Well, now the fear has gone, I'd like a Pantheon
so I can offer whatever is mine
That's the way of the Muse, boy – we'll all follow on in time

The cold was biting,
it's ever so exciting,
we played and sang 'till the dawn's early light
She sang in silence
with overtones of violence
about someone who had broken her heart
- she could have broken my heart all night

Open road help to carry my load,
let the river come and break my fall
Some say the moon will start talking,
others say he doesn't shut up at all
Open heart, I'd like to jump on her cart,
I will follow wherever she goes
That's the way of the Muse, boy
– stay lucky, so long, cheerio

Army, stoned freaks in the town centre and the universe blues are just some of what awaits the listener, set to a soundtrack grunge, rock’n’roll, mandolin dub and guitar heroics.
