​15 Steps

This song is by The Stranglers and appears on the album Giants (2012).

There's a house on a hill
You can hear it still
Contemplation
There's a table, a chair
And a room that is spare
Isolation
The topics discussed
Include dust
To the state of the nation
And the people in there
Trade in joy or disrepair
Satisfaction

And there are 15 steps to Heaven
Eddie Cochran got it wrong
And if you so lend me your soul
You'll feel the shake, rattle and roll before too long

There's a time and a place
And the thrill of the chase
Deconstruction
You could let your guard down
But it won't bring around
Supplication
And it seems days on end
Till the sight of friend
In conversation
But if things get you down
It's a short ride to town
For libation

Nothing ever seems to hurry
There is no Greenwich mean time there
And with the setting of the sun
Strange if anything gets done
But we don't care

May the night be my ear
Voices whisper in your ear
Apparition
But when the wind blows
And the old timbers glow
Superstition
But there's no finer place
To zone in and embrace
The seclusion
It's as sharp as a knife
And the rest of your life
Is an illusion

And nothing ever seems to hurry
There is no Greenwich mean time there
And with the setting of the sun
It's strange if anything gets done
But we don't care

'Cause there are 15 steps to Heaven
Old Eddie Cochran got it wrong
And if you so lend me your soul
You'll feel the shake, rattle and roll before too long
