about

glimmermen Dublin, Ireland

"Glimmermen are a different sort of band. In a sea of Spector-like indie landfill fodder they wear their honesty & integrity on their black sleeves with a sound that goes straight to the heart. Glimmermen know exactly the sound they want to make & that's something we want to hear". Le Cool Magazine Dublin ... more

Track Name: Satellite People
Everything bleeds the same
and everything reads the same
and everything breathes the same
as it ever did before
Wise men have seen the monkeys on the moon
but I wasn't really sure if it was real or in a cartoon
Waves of slaves wash through my brain
and render me a big fat nothing shore
If I could just move my hand
If I could mange to stand
I'd tell them all to go to blazes ever more

Oooo Satellite People

Sun rises in the east sets in the west (background)

Walls are built, boys are killed blood stains my eyes
and the haves and the have nots and the wills and the will nots they carry out justice the same
I am alone in my head for an instant
but I can see the distance between these two points
If I could just move my hand
If I could mange to stand
I'd tell them all to go to blazes ever more

Satellite people in satellite towns
watching satellite stories and waiting around
Track Name: Good Man
Good Man

I was a good man
I never done nothing bad
I never fell down
I never fell down
I was a good man
I never done nothing bad
I was wrong yeah I was wrong
I was a good man
I never done nothing bad
I wasn't done and thy will be done

Oh yeah

I was a bad man
I never done nothing good
I never felt down
I never felt down
I was a bad man
I never done nothing good
Ah what's wrong? Ah whats wrong?
I wasa bad man I never done nothing bad
I wasn't done and thy will be done

Oh yeah

Stars burn out
but for now
Stars burn out
but for now

Some time hey if you're all alone
I hope you can remember
all of the love that you've shown
and the way that you were
and the way that you are

Stars burn out
but for now
stars burn out
but for now

Track Name: Travellin' man
Yeah they call me the travellin' man
I got a big hat that'll cover all this land
but I swear to god that every blade of grass is meant for you
Yeah they call me the gambling man
I been livin' my life livin hand to hand
I swear to god that every blade of grass is meant for you
Yeah and blades is something I know something about to you better believe it.

Yeah and in and out of the darkness you could say I developed this hardness
but I made amends and I'm breakin mens arms along the way
The trail I traveled was a bad trail the flush of youth soon became a shade of pale
but I made a promise that I'm bringin it on home to you
Yeah and blades is something I know something too
you better believe it
Track Name: I'll Be
There was a time
a time when everthing was new
a time when everything in the world
was lit by a light that shone from you
days were born days had died and the lines and the weight were borne by you
an eye for an eye, a truth for a truth and a broken foot for a shoe

I'll be, the sound of your wheel spin
I'll be, your sacred heart of gold
I'll be the colour of your lamp light
I'll be the grass beneath your head tonight

I stand and I watch by the world go I
at everyone that I have ever known as they fade and as they die
days were born days had died and the lines and weight were borne by you
an eye for an eye, a truth for a truth and a broken foot for a shoe

I'll be, the sound of your wheel spin
I'll be, your sacred heart of gold
I'll be the colour of your lamp light
I'll be the grass beneath your head tonight
