Lyrics to Rarities
(The Cassettes)

This page contains the lyrics to the first two Supernaturals cassette EPs. Unless otherwise stated, all songs are either J.McColl and/or a combination of band members. (Actually, I don't know why I bothered putting these up, since most people have never even heard the songs!)

Her Majesty is just another version of Stammer

Dylan's Day Off
Let's play to the blessed man
I hope that he's at home,
You and me falling apart
If we can get his blessing%? Put our teams back out on the park
Before you start accusing
Backstabbing and abusing
Lets set the record straight from the start,
Like you said to Susan
Things got too confusing
You're a subject close to my heart
My heart [x2]
You know you're a subject close to my heart [Repeat] Hope springs eternal
Please come out together/again Maybe we can go for a walk
Blessed are the meek who can stay in bed all week but
You and me have got to just talk
Before you start accusing
Backstabbing and abusing
Lets set the record straight from the start,
Like you said to Susan
Things got too confusing
You're a subject close to my heart
My heart [x2]
You know you're a subject close to my heart
[Repeat]
I'm your saviour
But bad behaviour
Could make me want to
Hope springs eternal
So come out your kennel
Can make me play to the whistle?
You really make be bristle
Hey, to the whistle
I'm cursing you under my breath
You're bad, you're irritating
You're so deliberating
But I like you nonetheless
Before you start accusing
Backstabbing and abusing
Lets set the record straight from the start
Like you said to Susan
Things got too confusing
You're a subject close to my heart
My heart [x2]
You know you're a subject close to my heart
[Repeat x2]

NATM
You're gonna need somebody else
To be your dog
That hates themselves
They'll dig it yet %? Lose all respect treat like sh*t
To tear off the strip
I can't get off on you [x2]
You're gonna scrape the barrel again
But where can you go?
You have no friends
Here comes the shovel But I won't be there
To beat on the dog
You are the spare/in despair? I can't get off on you [x2]
The less said the better [x4]
I can't get off on you


St. Paul
St. Paul was a king and a bishop
All his friends were second class
What he did was second rate,
And all he touched it turned to slate
St. Peter was the king of London
In his hand he holds a bribe
Waiting for the freight train coming
The days are getting cold and I'm sure getting old
I used to think that love was a million miles away,
When it got so close I knew that I'd get to you some day
You're love is like a rock you know,
It washes on my shore
And when I want it less I find it
Coming back for more
Judas was a great deceiver
In his heart he holds a grudge
Waiting for the freight train coming
He thinks he can beat it down
Pontious Pilot standing watching in his mind he has no doubt
What he did was worth the trouble,
He just had to see it out
The days are getting cold and I'm sure getting old
I used to think that love was a million miles away,
When it got so close I knew that I'd get to you some day
You're love is like a rock you know
It washes on my shore
And when I want it less I find it
Coming back for more
I'm knocking on your door,
Lying on your floor
Coming back for more
[Chorus]

Korpsecatcher
[Ah x4]
I saw how you picture me
You know it shelters the heart of me
Sonny, I wrote this poor song about you,
Sonny, I'll have to do it without you
I never worked it out
What you were all about
You're always took the mick
You cut me to the quip
(Such a waste) x4
Took some flowers to your door
But your folks they don't live there any more
Sonny, I wrote this poor song about you,
Sonny, I'll have to do it without you
I never worked it out
What you were all about
You're always took the mick
You cut me to the quip
(Such a waste) x4
It's a law unto yourself
So unpredictable,
He's staring belief
As he kicks us in the teeth
Sonny, I wrote this poor song about you,
Sonny, I'll have to do it without you
I never worked it out
What you were all about
You're always took the mick
You cut me to the quip
(Such a waste) x4

Beach Ball
I've been passed over so many times
I don't care that much about it
You get used to being left behind,
You get used to doing without it
I was born in September too
Does that mean I'm cut out for you?
The winter dance must play its part,
But life is full of so many false starts
And even if this is our guess
I'll still enjoy myself
I'll try to be objective and just say oh what the hell
They're like a flock of sheep
With their heads up each other's arses
You should stick to your own beliefs
Its only yourself that matters
I was born in September too
Does that mean I'm cut out for you?
The winter dance must play its part,
But life is full of so many false starts
And even if this is our guess
I'll still enjoy myself
I'll try to be objective and just say oh what the hell
[Repeat] [Outro]
(Ba ba ba)
I've got no expectations
I've got no aspirations
I've got no explanations
I've got no aspirations.

Thanks Alex
The queen has got her horses
The king is bored with life
The prince thinks he is useful
But he's just a parasite
This whole world is beyond my grasp,
I thought I was first 'til I came in last
The bishop's in the bushes
Playing with the friend
Someone swore on Question Time
And they guillotined his head
This whole world is beyond my grasp,
I thought I was first 'til I came in last
Ooh.
This world means nothing to me
They say that I am bothered
I've been lying through my teeth
Lying through my teeth [x3]
You get to the top of the stairs
You know the snakes will come and get you there
Climb to the top of the ladder
They'll push you down before you get far.
This whole world is beyond my grasp,
I though I was first 'til I came in last
Ooh.
This world means nothing to me
They say that I am bothered
I've been lying through my teeth
Lying through my teeth [x7]

Day Before Yesterday's Man is much longer than the album version, and has a few different lines at the end.

Dark Star
Bitter and twisted I want to just crucify you
You're just a parody of someone that I once knew
Fallen from a dark star
It's someone for me,
It's just like a leapyear(%?) with light years between
Build me a spaceship and get me to there
I'm biting off my fingernails, I'm pulling out my hair
Throw caution to the wind when there isn't even a breeze
If I stay here with you then I'm gonna get your disease
Fallen from a dark star
It's someone for me,
It's just like there's breathing with light years between
Build me a spaceship and get me to there
I'm biting off my fingernails, I'm pulling out my hair
[Instrumental] [Sighing]

Ragamuffin
Waking up to the sound, of church bells ringing
When Sunday comes along I suffer for my drinking
I play your favorite song
But I can't hear you singing
'Cause ever since you've gone
Life's not been worth living
Is there anyone
That still wants you?
Is there anyone
That still needs you?
(I don't know x4) I'm like a vagabond
In these clothes I'm wearing
They are all old and torn
I've given up on caring
I watch you're favorite film
But I can't hear you talking
'Cause ever since you've gone
My minds been sleepwalking
Is there anyone
That still wants you?
Is there anyone
That still needs you?
(I don't know x4)
[Instrumental] [Chorus]
I don't know

Bipod-X
I called you up from nowhere
With my final 50 pence
You used to be my girl
You used to make such sense
Fell out of the cradle
And got myself a life
And put some space between us
And put you to the sword
Guiding star you were last month's flavor
But now you're
In the graveyard with all the rest,
Were you rejected or did you deserve it?
Is that a dead weight round your neck?
Lost in disillusion,
You held me in your sway
Then you became transparent
And your halo slipped away
Guiding star you were last month's flavor
But now you're
In the graveyard with all the rest,
Were you rejected or did you deserve it?
Is that a dead weight round your neck?
[Repeat]
[Do do do do]


Bird Has Flown
Your love's like a meal
That you stick in your arm
My love's like a phonecall
That has gone on too long
Your love makes you thirsty,
Makes you hungry when I'm gone
My love is so lazy
It's so tired
It will not go on
Yes I hope you prove me wrong
Cause I think this bird has flown,
And it's time that we moved on
Yes I hope you prove me wrong
'Cause the good old days are gone,
And it's time that we were alone
Your love's like a painting that I hang in my room
My love's so distant it could be on the moon
Your love's like a photo,
It's stuck in the past
My love is so pointless
It's so useless
It will not burst
Yes I hope you prove me wrong
Cause I think this bird has flown,
And it's time that we moved on
Yes I hope you prove me wrong
Cause the good old days are gone,
And it's time that we were alone
Bor better or for worse
For richer or for poorer
This star %?
Cause things aren't getting better they're getting worse
Paper over all the cracks
Overlook the essential facts
The good old days are coming back
[Chorus x2]

Large Dung Beetle is similar to the album version.

Ballad of Dweez
I was this toy we had built
'Cause you to me mean zilch
The grass is greener
The grass is greener
Over there
I've been spared
I've been spared
I want to wash my hair
I went to change you for this spare
The grass is greener
The grass is greener
Over there
I've been spared
I've been spared
[Repeat]

Curtains.
To fill the void
I turn to booze
When I'm throwing up I think of you
So naive right from the start
I should have known
You've got an armor-plated heart
I lost the will to comb my hair
You're not my hair
There's no-one there
I'm in the dark
My card's been marked
I should have known
You've got an armor-plated heart
Just when I thought I'd found somebody who would iron all my shirts
You decided that you were gonna throw a spanner in the works
You made me walk along the plank
You made me draw another blank
I've broken down
There's no spare parts
I should have known
You've got an armor-plated heart
Just when I thought I'd found somebody who would iron all my shirts
You decided that you're gonna throw a spanner in the works
You've got an armor-plated heart.
