Men Without Souls

from by The Stunning

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Nine tracks recorded live over two nights in An Taibhdhearc Theatre, Galway, Ireland in 1993. The Stunning's live performances are legendary and this captures the band at their peak. Featuring songs such as Tightrope Walker, Wish We Never Met, All out of Luck and Men without Souls that are not available on any of the band's studio albums. The sound quality and mixes are amazing and the band are beefed up with a full brass section. The capacity of the theatre is only around 200 people so this is as intimate as it gets. With fold-out booklet including lyrics, photos and album credits.

about

Written about the spate of paramilitary punishment shootings and beatings in the north of Ireland throughout the Troubles.

lyrics

I’M TIRED OF ALL THAT
I’M TIRED OF ALL THAT
I’M TIRED OF THE TALKS
ABOUT TALKS ABOUT TALKS
WHILE THE GUNS HAVE THEIR SAY

I’M SICK TO THE TEETH
YEAH I’M SICK TO THE TEETH
SOME MEN ARE SO ILL
THEY CAN BUTCHER AND KILL
FOR WHAT THEY BELIEVE

I CRIED WHEN I READ
THERE’S A BOY NEARLY DEAD
THEY SHOT HIM WITH HOLES
AND THEN BROKE A FEW BONES
AREN’T YOU TOUGH MEN

DO YOU DREAM IN YOUR SLEEP
DO YOU DREAM IN YOUR SLEEP
YOU LEFT HIM HALF DEAD
AND YOU WENT HOME TO BED
YOUR WIFE BRUSHED YOUR COAT
AND SHE MADE YOU SOME TOAST
CAN YOU HEAR HIM MOAN

MEN WITHOUT SOULS
MEN WITHOUT SOULS
THE WHOLE WORLD IS FILLED WITH THEM
DRAGGING THEIR FILTH WITH THEM
MADMEN WILL KILL FOR THEM
AND THEIR MOTHERS STILL FEEL FOR THEM
MEN WITHOUT SOULS
