lyrics

Rode the grey dog to the left coast
Seventy hours on a desperate coach
To bury me old man, slay the ghost
Of a native homeland vagabond

Feeling that cold familiar dread
Heeding that voice that still presents
To speak for me again, pretend
Derelict vagabond

I lurk in the shadow
The murky grey matter
So I say, why bother?
It’ll only get harder

Watching my years go to waste
Wishing this fear would just go away
Awash in existential angst
Dangerously indifferent

Two mad hounds fight to the death
Whoever gets fed'll never relent
Whatever gets made'll ever be spent
Eccentric vagabond

So love one another
Be good to your mother
Remember your father
Forget all the drama
Be kind to your brothers
Sister and the others
For to be a man-pleaser
Always neater and cleaner

I lurk in the shadow
The murky grey matter
So again I say, why bother?
It’ll only get harder

Better make your mind up, sister
Better make your mind up, boy
Better make your mind up, mister
You're the double-minded man

Better make your mind up, sister
Better make your mind up, boy
Better make your mind up, mister
You're the double-minded man

The double-minded man
Is unstable in all his ways
He folds up like a cheap suit
At the first sign of adversity
Adversity

Better make your mind up, sister
Better make your mind up, boy
Better make your mind up, mister
You're the double-minded man

Better make your mind up, sister
You were never meant to be a wind-up toy
Better make your mind up, mister
You're the double-minded man

The double-minded man
Is unstable in all his ways
He folds up like a cheap suit
At the first sign of adversity
Adversity

The double-minded man
Is unstable in all his ways
He folds up like a cheap suit
At the first sign of adversity
Adversity
Adversity
Adversity

Repent, oh man
So lackadaisical
The ship has run aground
So little traction to turn this thing around

Repent, oh man
Self-loathing leave behind
The joy of being wrong
Rediscover the right
Ebenezer Scrooge’s visitation in the night

Repent, oh man
The Lord is closing in
Purify your heart, double-minded soul
Humble thyself, He shall lift you up
Repent, my friend
My friend …
