"This Street, That Man, This Life" as written by and Michael Timmins....
This street holds its secrets like a cobra holds its kill
This street minds its business like a jailer minds his jail
That house there is haunted
That door's a portal to hell
This street holds its secrets very well

That man wears his skin like a dancer wears her veils
That man stalks his victims like a cancer stalks a cell
That man's soul has left him his heart's as deadly as a rusty nail
That man sheds his skin like a veil

Lord, you play a hard game, you know we follow every rule
Then you take the one thing we thought we'd never lose
All I ask is if she's with you please keep her warm and safe
And if it's in your power please purge the memory of this place

This life holds its secrets like a sea shell holds the sea,
Soft and distant calling like a fading memory
This life has its victories but its defeats tear so viciously
This life holds its secrets like the sea

    My InterpretationI don't know to what this song refers and maybe it is a comment on a mythical figure of evil (Satan etc). Or it could be about a daughter/sister/wife having been moved to a place of safety away from an abusive father/husband. In either case it has a powerful sombre and menacing tone.
