Selected Lyrics

The vast majority of Sylvian lyrics can be found at and slowfire. I'll generally only transcribe newly released songs that aren't up elsewhere (or ones that contain interesting background samples or vocals) and live versions of unreleased songs.

Selected Lyric

Anomaly At Taw Head

Track #06 - Died in the Wool // By: Words: David Sylvian

Not such a brutal man
But we couldn’t save him from himself
Gunslinger, rifle sights to the eye

Cold blooded, only a mother could love him
Time to concede defeat
Make for the other side
