Head Of The Nail

from Catch A Cloud by Edward Rogers

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Catch A Cloud, Edward Rogers' eighth solo album, comes in a cool gatefold case. It is a soul-searching, stripped-down personal statement, a trippy swirl of music and ideas, observations of what was going on around him at the time, which influenced both the music and the lyrics of the songs.

lyrics

WALKING AROUND IN A HAZE
IN A MOMENT OF DISBELIEF
DISABLED BY RETURNING SORROW
JUST PROLONGS – ALL THE GRIEF

TURN OFF THE SOUNDS OF ROBERT WYATT
CAN’T BE KNOWN AS HIS THIEF
THIS MOMENT ONLY REWARDS SILENCE
WHICH AT BEST – A MOMENTARY RELIEF 

CALL BACK REMINDERS FROM MY PAST
FOR THAT ONE MISTAKE I WAS SO MISCAST
STUPID ENOUGH TO PULL TWO JOKERS FROM A PACK
REPAY THE PRICE – THERE’S NO WAY BACK

AS THE HEAD OF A NAIL
DRIVES DEEPER IN MY BRAIN
EVERY SECOND A LIFETIME
CAN’T GET BACK AGAIN
AS THE SORE GETS MORE INFLAMED
CAN’T HIDE AWAY FROM MY SHAME
I’M THE ONE WHO BARES THE BLAME

A PERMANENT MEMORY TO KEEP ME IN LINE
NEVER DO TANGO OR DRINK TOO MUCH WINE
GIVEN THE WARNING – NEVER SAW THE SIGN
RECEIVED THE BAD CARD, TOO LATE TO DECLINE
 
NO USE LOOKING BACK, JUST MOVING AHEAD
STILL HOLD MEMORIES OF THE BLOOD I BLED
I’M TO BLAME FOR THE HELL I SPREAD
TOO MANY SECONDS LOST, I NOW DREAD

AS THE HEAD OF A NAIL
DRIVES DEEPER IN MY BRAIN
EVERY SECOND A LIFETIME
WON’T SEE IT AGAIN
AS THE SORE GETS MORE INFLAMED
I’M THE ONE WHO BARES THE BLAM
NOT TO DRAIN AWAY MY SHAME

CAPTURED N CONTAINED IN THESE FOUR WALLS
TIME LOCKED – IN DISBELIEF
DROWNING IN RETURNING SORROW
ABSORBS ALL MY HIDDEN GRIEF
 
AS THE HEAD OF A NAIL
DRIVES DEEPER IN MY BRAIN
EVERY SECOND A LIFETIME
WON’T SEE IT AGAIN
AS THE SORE GETS MORE INFLAMED
I’M THE ONE WHO BARES THE BLAM
NOT TO DRAIN AWAY MY SHAME
NOT TO HIDE AWAY MY SHAME
