about

Digitally remastered from analogue recordings of the full Orphans repertoire done by songwriter/founder member Ross Buncle after the band broke up. The idea was to provide a better quality recording of each of the Orphans' songs than were ever made during the band's short life.

These recordings were entitled "Orphans Revisited" and comprised Disc 2 of the original double Orphans album, "Exposed". Every effort has been made to stay true to the sound and spirit of the band, and to retain a dynamic live feel, right down to using the same MXR distortion pedal to attain the Orphans' guitar sound, and referencing Max Kittler's original drumming beat for beat, fill for fill.

lyrics

SWEET SUICIDE

Tonight I lay awake in my room
Hear you callin', wait I'm comin'
See a light through the gloom
Hear you callin', wait I'm comin'
Gonna stop the long climb
Hear you callin', wait I'm comin'
Suicide sublime

Gonna stop the pain
Wash it away in crimson rain
Tonight I'll be at your side
Tonight I face sweet suicide
Well all right

Tonight, I'll be with you tonight
Tonight, tonight tonight tonight

Sound of bells 'cross an endless sea
Hear you callin', wait I'm comin'
For whom they toll?
They toll for me
Hear you callin', wait I'm comin'
Gonna run with the ocean tide
Hear you callin', wait I'm comin'
Let the sunset be my guide
Hear you callin', wait I'm comin'

Gonna stop the pain
Wash it away in crimson rain
Tonight I'll be at your side
Tonight I face sweet suicide
Well all right

Tonight, I'll be with you tonight
Tonight, tonight tonight tonight
