about

No point in beating about the bush, this is our inevitable reaction to a strange new world of Brexit, president-elect Trump, and the rise of the right throughout the West. Well what else would you expect from us?
This is the third in our series of EP's starting with 'Miles Checks Out' (October 2016), 'Bright Spark' (November 2016). More info on all our recordings, live dates etc at www.thedowlingpoole.com

Track Name: The Dowling Poole - Deep Breath
Deep Breath

Some called it reckless – They warned of consequences
Hard wired for helpless – Trapped by their own defences
Lets blame those ugly children
Wise words designed to make no sound at all

Where went those promises?
Who stole that book of dreams to come?
So flatline your senses now and turn
Before all the engines burn it all away.

The harder they come, the big and the tall
The deeper the bed to cushion their fall
2-3-4 Deep breath
United we stand, divided we fall
See the people cripple and crawl
2-3-4 Deep breath
Still you’ll get no satisfaction

We hide in smug superior
Then we light up the fires to fuel the cruel
Shame for the laissez-faire neglect
One more cog in a wheel of incompetence (to shield your eyes)

The harder they come, the big and the tall
The deeper the bed to cushion their fall
2-3-4 Deep breath
United we stand, divided we fall
See the people cripple and crawl
2-3-4 Deep breath
And I can’t get no satisfaction

And all they see glitter is gold for the fools
Like slaves to their own super-cool

The game is done, the wrong side won
There is no change of heart to come
No last reprise, no guarantees
You lost your voice when you disagreed
And all the rhetoric, that got you in a spin
Will take away the only pot you had to piss in
And when the tables turn, as far as you’re concerned
You’ll be the next in a line of weak they come to burn

All we listen for are bells to ring the changes
All we’re wishing for are better days to come (repeat)
Track Name: The Dowling Poole - A Kiss On the Ocean (live acoustic in Manchester)
A Kiss On The Ocean

You’re there each morning when I wake up
Each morning there’s a glow that only you could know
There is no other tonic for me, No other place I’d
Rather be than here with thee.
Above the ocean where we sing and dance (aah)
I kiss the water just to get one glance(aah)

CHORUS
Well, I never thought I’d love you as much as I do today-No way,
No, I never thought I’d love you as much as I do today-No way, Jose,
Well I never thought I’d see you as someone I could be,
You’ll see, you’ll set me free.

When you’re with me you’re always alone with me
You’re always home alone with me, your clone,
There is a picture of you, a view, a picture,
Have you ever seen the like before?
Behold this vision taking pride of place (aah)
A vivid reproduction of my face (aah)

REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: Paper, Scissors, Stone (live acoustic in Manchester)
Paper Stone Scissors

When did the chosen few then become a crowd
People forgive me I’m thinking out aloud
About all who are stolen as time marches by
How to decide who’s to live or to die

Back in a time when I couldn’t give a damn
Blissfully unaware of my fellow man
I would dream of the future and all I could be
Assuming that you’d all still be there with me

CHORUS
In the skies the dictator I despise will gun you down
Breeding chaos all around
Good die young, Is your work here never done
Now satisfied? There’s a tyrant in the sky
Boys and girls just soldier on – blissfully young

How does one make these decisions of a day
Are there accomplices to they have a say on
Who gets it or who has to sit this one out
Paper, stone scissors heads up its your shout

MIDDLE EIGHT

I saw the signs from a very young age
When they said that “they’re coming to take me away”
Oh so sinister the innocence of youth.
Paper Stone Scissors
