COVER UP

Cover Up by Dark Company, from the album Can of Worms.

COVER UP
Sitting on my hands like a creature on the floor
Spitting at the angels playing round the door
Prison of delusion in the heartland of the sane
News unscrews my mind TV wars are just a game

Believe it, don’t believe
Believe it, don’t believe
Believe it, don’t believe
What they say that you should see
Believe it, don’t believe
Believe it, don’t believe
Believe it, don’t believe
What they say that you should see

Holding up my face like a moonlit candystick
Watching all the crawlies pulling at their lips
Happy house of “Should Be”, home of games and rhymes
Lots of little people who mustn’t be told why

Believe it, don’t believe
Believe it, don’t believe
Believe it, don’t believe
What they say that you should see
Believe it, don’t believe
Believe it, don’t believe
Believe it, don’t believe
What they say that you should see

Playing on my body like a fleshy mandolin
Picking at the melody of a slower sin
Rain showers of the sweet talk, greasy lakes of words
Did you speak? Was it you?
Who was it that you heard?

Believe it, don’t believe
Believe it, don’t believe
Believe it, don’t believe
What they say that you should see
Believe it, don’t believe
Believe it, don’t believe
Believe it, don’t believe
What they say that you should see

Fun Facts:

  • Cover Up is a song that was largely written by Pete and Jeff to start with.
  • Rowena played some delightful flute on this song in its early days and we kept that sound on the synthesizers and transfered some of her part to the guitar.
  • It is part of a group of songs that include Last Train to Heaven and Golden Eye from the Rage in Heaven album, White Bird on Ivory from Ghost of the Art, and Simple Love from Can of Worms.
  • All five songs were created when George was trying in vain to rescue his girlfriend of the time from the slippery slope of alcoholism.
  • The five songs mentioned above were all created around the same bank of sounds on the Yamaha TG33.
  • It was some time later that George created all the guitar parts.
  • Pete would sit on his hands and blow raspberries to illustrate what he meant by the angels he describes in the verses, which meant everybody else either needed to dive for cover or use a towel, which made it both comical and alarming.
  • The chords for this song are mostly ||: Dm – F – G – Cmaj7 :||
