Blind Man Morris
written by: Jak Locke

version 2:
from Already Fading On Some Horizon (February 5th 2003) (2:17)
Through the devil night the air blew cold to fill the gap where the blind man stole
A mercenary thief was he, claiming his gold most jealously
Blind Man Morris with his head in his arms, relying on his effervescent charms

The queen and the actress had met before, standing in the jamb of irony’s door
She was is sitting on the blind man’s leg, leaves him there to sit and moan and panhandle and beg
Blind Man Morris on the side of the road trying to decipher the actress’s code

Queen Maureen with her hand on her hip exalting the pride of her sinking ship
Blind man watchin the queen from the pier, says “I got a life jacket, it’s stayin right here”
The actress, in her coat of gold in the devil night where the air blows cold
To fill the gap where the blind man stole, yeah, in the devil night, the air blows cold cold cold cold cold

version 1:
from Here, We Rock (December 21st 2001) (2:05)
Through the devil night the air blew cold to fill the gap where the blind man stole
A mercenary thief was he, claiming his gold most jealously
And sweet Queen Maureen in her plastic cape demanding sweet nothings from a hollow shape
Blind Man Morris with his head in his arms, relying on his effervescent charms

The queen and the actress had met before, standing in the jamb of irony’s door
Actress is sitting on the blind man’s leg, leaves him there to panhandle and beg
Unknowingly she opens the door just enough to keep him coming back for more
Blind Man Morris on the side of the road trying to decipher the actress’s code

Queen Maureen with her hand on her hip exalting the pride of her sinking ship
Blind man watchin the queen from the pier, says “I got a life jacket and it’s stayin right here”
The actress, in her coat of gold in the devil night where the air blows cold
To fill the gap where the blind man stole, in the devil night, the air blew cold cold
