"Statues" as written by and Jack Bruce....
when you look at this stony face,
tell me what do you see?
do you still see me,
then you see this parasite?
when you look at these dead eyes, dried up and colorless
the eyes off the motherless
enjoy no company

in the gallery of my mind
lost in the sands of time
the shadows and sounds that remind
the statues of the past
roll deep, tonight

when you look at this old soul
is he trapped in the teeth of his tear
too far gone to hear his heart still beating
when you dream about your lovers laugh,
is he able to smile?
it might take him a while
I'm sorry, if he doesn't like it too much

in the gallery of my mind
lost in the sands of time
the shadows and sounds that remind
the statues of the past
roll deep, tonight

when you love these broken bones
can you feel them mend?
don't care to pretend, but i slept with an angel
when you kiss these hard lower lips
when you kiss these heart-murmur lips
the only time they're warm
is just the day i was born

in the gallery of my mind
lost in the sands of time
the shadows and sounds that remind
the statues of the past
roll deep, tonight

    General Commenti think this is it:


    it might take him a while

    when you love these broken bones

    when you kiss these heart-murmur lips
    the only time they're warm
    is just the day i was born

    General CommentI think it's about getting your heart broken
    Or a lost love or something
    Either way this song is amazing and Mook is my favorite band
