Church of Second Chances

from by Bill Coleman

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Comes in a cardboard digipak with customised artwork. For a detailed explanation see the Youtube video here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=39Iqpvb6JV8

    The covers were made in batches of 1,000. When put together they spell out the title of the album - see the first picture above.

    Each digipak was then hand stenciled and completed with a manufactured CD and a set of paper slips which go together, jigsaw-like, to spell out the song lyrics, thank-yous and album credits.

    Also includes download of the album in your choice of 320k mp3, FLAC, or just about any other format you could possibly desire.

lyrics

You can read about the money,
And talk about the past.
Design your better motives,
And cheat them to the last,
But every message you could give them,
Is then poisoned by your recent chequered past.

We are counting out the money,
Evaluating shame,
We are trying to revise the dues,
The passions we berated,
We are locked out of your room,
We are banished to the coming gloom.

This is the last saloon for dancing,
This is the church of second chances,
It's alright.

When you realise the difference,
That you make on funeral day,
When you try to take your load off,
You are shocked and dismayed,
To find your credit is no good,
And you've been pawned of everything that you believed.

We are counting out the money,
Evaluating shame,
We are trying to revise the dues,
The passions we berated,
We are locked out of your room,
We are banished to the coming gloom.

This is the last saloon for dancing,
This is the church of second chances,
It's alright.

Help me to understand,
Help me lend my hands,
I am no good.
