about

"A Lemmy/Bowie double tribute from the Swervedriver man. Motörhead's Hell's Angel hymn morphs into a Cold War Berlin paranoiac blues, while the Dame's 1999 single is eerily retro-Bowiefied" MOJO

Track Name: Iron Horse/Born To Lose
He rides the road that don't have no end
An open highway without any bends
Tramp and his stallion alone in a dream
Proud in his colours as the chromium gleams

On Iron Horse he flies
On Iron Horse he'll gladly die
Iron Horse his wife
Iron Horse his life

He lives his life he's living it fast
You don't try to hide when the dice have been cast
He rides the whirlwind that cuts to the bone
Loaded forever, ferociously stoned

On Iron Horse he flies
On Iron Horse he'll gladly die
Iron Horse his wife
Iron Horse his life

One day one day, they'll go for the sun
And together they'll slide on the eternal run
Wasted forever on speed, bikes and booze
We're all Tramp and the brothers
And we're all born to lose
Track Name: Thursday's Child
All of my life I've tried so hard
Doing my best with what I had
Nothing much happened all the same

Something about me stood apart
A whisper of hope that seemed to fail
Maybe I'm born right out of my time
Breaking my life in two

Throw me tomorrow
Now that I've really got a chance
Throw me tomorrow
Everything's falling into place
Throw me tomorrow
Seeing my past to let it go
Throw me tomorrow
Only for you I don't regret
That I was Thursday's child

Monday Tuesday Wednesday born I was

Sometimes I cried my heart to sleep
Shuffling days and lonesome nights
Sometimes my courage fell to my feet

Lucky old sun is in my sky
Nothing prepared me for your smile
Lighting the darkness of my soul
Innocence in your arms

Monday Tuesday Wednesday born I was
Thursday's Child
