"Berlin Chair" as written by Tim Adrian Rogers, Andy Kent and Mark Tunaley....
If half of what I'm saying, of what I'm saying is true
Will you rub my head, make it all shiny and new?
And you drag my coat tails, drag my coat tails down
And I'll be the only cold assed king around.
If you wait I'll give all my aches to you.
Take the chance, to ignore what you're going through?
My cold hand is there for you to take
(If you leave, can I fall down)
I'm your Berlin chair, won't you lean on me 'til I break.

I'll ignore each golden, dragging kiss you can give.
On the blankest face that you ever had to forgive.
If you see my failings, see my failings through.
I'm the re-run that you'll always force yourself to sit through.

If you wait I'll give all my aches to you.
Take the chance, to ignore what you're going through?
My cold hand is there for you to take
(If you leave, can I fall down)
I'm your Berlin chair, won't you lean on me 'til I break.

Well you're too late. You're too late.
You're too late.

    General CommentThe Berlin Chair was a sculpture Tim saw at the National Gallery in Canberra. It was a stiff, very fragile looking chair, that you could quite conceivably "lean on" til it broke.

    General Commentcheck out the live version of this on the bonus disc to convicts featuring Kev from Jeb if you like either band. I just love the way it explodes when he says "true"
