North South East and West
Church Lyrics


A war's being waged and the world's just a stage (in this city)
The real estate's prime, the number plates rhyme (liquidity)
Wear a gun and be proud, but bare breasts aren't allowed (in this city)
Dream up a scam and then rake in the clams (liquidity)

(It's neither here nor there) It's neither here nor there
North and south and east and west
(It has to be somewhere) It oughta be somewhere
North and south and east and west
I take my payment, I catch my flight,
And don't wait up for me tonight
(And you might find me there) and you might find me there
North and south and east and west

Have a quick throw or host your own show (in this city)
To a wolf from a lamb for just half a gram (liquidity)
The face of today just a scalpel away
Restore your lost soul for two dollars plus toll (liquidity)

Backs are patted when calves are fatted (in this city)
The emperor's clothes are host for the proles (liquidity)
The guys with the brains are all bitter and vain (stupidity)
The guys with the luck got the bimbos and bucks (liquidity)
(Chorus)

A war's being waged and the world's just a stage
in this city
The real estate's prime, the number plates rhyme,
liquidity
Wear a gun and be proud, but bare breasts aren't allowed
in this city
Dream up a scam and then rake in the clams,
liquidity

It's neither here nor there, it's neither here nor there
North and south and east and west
It has to be somewhere, it oughta be somewhere
North and south and east and west

I take my payment, I catch my flight
And don't wait up for me tonight
And you may find me there, and you might find me there
North and south and east and west

Have a quick throw or host your own show
in this city
To a wolf from a lamb for just half a gram,
liquidity
The face of today just a scalpel away
Restore your lost soul for two dollars plus toll,
liquidity

Backs are patted when calves are fatted
in this city
The emperor's clothes are the best for the proles,
liquidity
The guys with brains are all bitter and vain,
stupidity
The guys with the luck got the bimbos and bucks,
liquidity

It's neither here nor there, it's neither here nor there
North and south and east and west
It has to be somewhere, it oughta be somewhere
North and south and east and west

I take my payment, I catch my flight
Don't wait up for me tonight
And you might find me there, and you might find me there
North and south and east and west

There is not a bad song on this entire album......right up there with The Cure's Disintegration..........

Joe Decker

I much prefer this ten times more!

Jeep Thang

and David & David 's Boomtown, all 3 are so underappreciated

Jason Williams

This is one of the best records ever recorded. I could literally listen to these guys interplay on guitar all fucking day long. So much from such great economy.

njholman79

Completely agree, it just fucking rocks. Must have listened to this song more than any other but the opening guitars still give me goosebumps.

Rob Sierra

This is a great album, everyone should have it

Tullfan

If The Church had one iconic song that best summed them up, this would be it for me. Great fusion of Steve Kilbey's effortless drawl and the superb jangly guitar all set against their trademark ethereal vibe. Great song. Great album.

Her Aeolian Harp

Perfect description. Yes!

Icarus Trinity

I forgot how truly amazing this album is...a masterpiece. Lost, North-South, Under the Milky Way, the damn thing is GREAT! I listened to this 1000s of times but lost it for a decade. Beautiful.

Chef Tips

One of the top best albums ever!
