  • Short back and sides
    Dinner plate eyes blown wide
    Pigeon chested young man and brother
    Steps out of a tomb
    Of toxicity and ruin
    Spends his money on cheap wine
    Hold me, I'm only a moment away
    Hold me, I'm only a moment away
    The dogs on the street
    Sing your pains as the heat
    Saps the sweat from your skin

    The war is nearly done man
    Are you ready for the healing?
    Are you ready for the healing?

    Shaken by his surname
    Succinct
    Waiting in the wings, we watched
    Your face frozen like the hands of
    Clery's Clock, stopped
    The war is nearly done
    Are you ready for the healing?

    I'm Billy no mates
    Standing at the school gates
    I spy a poster for the French Foreign Legion
    Gonna join the ranks with my grandfather's blade
    With my beacon and my brush
    New tattoo and my limp
    Oh, Julianne, with your eyes of opals
    The heirs spat at you, just for being open
    A bastion of youth in a world that's
    Ripped right open
    Softly spoken Youth Brigade
    Hold me, I'm only a moment away
    Hold me, I'm only a moment away
    Hold me, I'm only a moment away
    The man on the street
    Lets the air at his feet
    Somebody dies, a child gets born

    The war is nearly done man
    Are you ready for the healing?
    Are you ready for the healing?

    (Hold me, I'm only a moment away)
    (Hold me, I'm only a moment away)
    (Hold me, I'm only a moment away)
    (Hold me, I'm only a moment away) Writer/s: David Keenan
