Fall from grace, the second album from Philip Peters, dip's into early 1970s top 40 as well as his own post punk roots. The result is an album that flows from song to song like a vintage FM radio show. Classic yet totally new!



The first track, “Tell me you love me”, samples a rare recording from the turn of the century official seance used to contact Houdini in the afterlife. The result is beautiful and strange. The next track, “Where is your man”, is a mischievous plea to a would be bride. “She's an actress”, questions a woman’s ability to mislead you but also your own desire to know if she is being truthful. The album is pleasant and flowing with words conveying an attitude of darkness.

Track Name: Tell me you love me
i need a séance, some kind of nuance to get in touch with you, to just get threw
i'm becoming a conjurer, some kind of astronomer evocating you, i believe its true
is there some kind of medium, an equilibrium to cary me on threw, take me to you

strange dreams come to life
i hear your voce in the night
i feel your presence surrounding me
as if there's life after life

so tell me you love me
so tell me you love me
so tell me you love me now

love was a burden, you were quick to unload and never hold again
stars light up the sky, in the corner of my eye i see you again
is there some kind of medium, an equilibrium to cary me on threw, take me to you
Track Name: Where is your man
I may not be the wight man for you but I can be Mr. Right right now.
so why be noble when mr rights not even around

why be so virtuous as if you've been betrothed
don't you wonder where he goes when he goes

open the door i'm not gona cause you any pain
i just want to practice with you for your wedding day

why contemplate tomorrow it works out some how
lets just think about right now

on and on you wait for him to call
on your own how long can you go on

where is your man
where is your man
if his so right for you i don't under stand
tell me honey where's your man

I may not be the wight man for you but I can be Mr. Right right now.
so why be noble when mr rights not even around

why be so virtuous as if you've been betrothed
don't you wonder where he goes when he goes

on and on you wait for him to call
on your own how long can you go on

where is your man
where is your man
where is your man
off to claim another hand
Track Name: Actress
she enters the scene
more lovely each time
and you just want to keep her safe from this crime

but she takes it in stride
so graceful and kind
and its hard to believe she's just reading her lines.

but what really lies
behind those sweet eyes

when she can't go on
and she cry cry cry's
don't you re-a-lize
she an actress


and when staying with me
became not quite so that easy
she suffered in silence never out loud

but she takes it in stride
so graceful and kind
i truly in aware she's one of a kind

but what really hides
behind all the lies
Track Name: Here with you
in a dingy room, on a freezing night, with a lamp that needs a shade
in a strange city, thats all new to me, and a lack of conviction for the plans we made
going over my options tonight, can i leave with out starting a fight, or maybe i'll just slip away

and don't i miss home
you know i should have never started to rome
if i could leave tonight
i know that everything would be all rite

and i hope i never see this place again

still i want to be here
still i want to be here
still i want to be here with you


but lets face it i can't live like this
and i probably wont be that missed
you'll find some one els to keep you amused

after everything that we've been threw
after everything it comes down to
i'm the one thats really been abused


and no its not nice but guess what
i know you don't what me to but
no ones gana tell me what to do


but it all ends today
i never should have let you drag me away
and if i leave tonight
i could be back home by morning light
Track Name: Have you no mercy
Hanging round with you, is teaching me a thing or two and i don't want to go around with you
hanging round like this, hoping just to get a kiss and thinking that i don't need all of this

olivia- why you wana do me like you do?
olivia- why do you make me rase my voce, get up and shout at you?

have you no mercy
have you no mercy
have you no mercy on me
have you no mercy on me

i can't brake away, something brings me back each day and i can't ever brake away from you
something in that smile, something in that face and eyes , something thats a woman and a child

olivia- no about of patience is enough
olivia- what ever happened to you in the past that makes you act so tough?

have you no mercy
have you no mercy
have you no mercy on me
have you no mercy on me


i want to tell ya that i love ya and i miss ya alot
but every time i try to tell ya i get you don't give what you got
i want to hold you in my arms and make you change your ways tonight
but you don't listen and it makes me feel i'm losing my mind
i have to sneak up from behind you just to say good night
now tell me how's that rite now tell hows that rite?
Track Name: Another failed attempt
riding the wave of happiness
feeling the rush of your successes

in just a few hours
and you had achieved super powers
now its gone and only a person remains

a few days together far away from home
looking thew windows at things you can't own

but now all the nights are getting so long
racking your brain for what you did wrong
rethinking each word, replaying that song

clearly you blow it
and thats all there seems to be to it
how could you have gotten is all so wrong ?

I know you feel like you been had
I know you feel like you bin had
another failed attempt at happiness
another failed attempt at happiness
Track Name: Fall from grace
Looking back I want to try again
One more time I need to try again?
Roll the tape back I know what, i need to do.
You and me why don't we try again?


Every time I see your face
Makes me want to fall from grace.

But there's no turning back now
And now is no time to cry
But now I know exactly what I - should say to you
And all I needs a little time

Remember when you used to try and hold me
and all the times used to have to scold me
i want to see you looking , like I remember you
like I remember the things you told me


Come on now I want to see you shine
I want to see you looking like you used to
One more time I want to see you shine


Every time I see your face
Makes me want to fall from grace.


But there's no turning back now
And now is no time to cry
And there's no way to tell you what I need to
But if I could you know I'd try

Every time I see your face
Makes me want to fall from grace.
Track Name: Nocturnal promises
spiraling down with the new morning light on the wall
chasing the shadows that used to be friends you could call

walking on the black carpet again
turning into that person again
trying to get something out of this night
a euphoric recall of delight

nocturnal promises can't hold you thew the night
and that fixation only fads in morning light
another victim and you try to carry on
nocturnal promises don't last for very long

Laying a foundation down with just a touch of silicone.
Caressing upper eyelids with a penetrating cleansing foam.
Hydrating every inch of flesh with an expensive try-sodium.
Inspecting her complexion now in different lights and different tones.

She looks into the mirror searching for a glimpse of something real.
She looks into the mirror longing for something she can feel.

every thing is closing up so fast
no ones got the cash
good times coming back

there's hardly anybody on the street
lots of people losing sleep
but good times coming back

its not gonna be to long from now
salivations on the prowl
good times coming back

no more going on about the past
how things don't never last
good times coming back
