SCOTT WALKER – The Cockfighter

Tilt is the twelfth studio album by the American/English solo artist Scott Walker, released on 8 May 1995 and reached number 27 on the UK albums chart. No singles were released from the album. It was Walker’s first studio album in eleven years.

Walker composed the songs for the album between 1991 and 1992 except “Manhattan”, which was written in 1987, and the final song “Rosary”, which was composed in 1993. The album was recorded at RAK Studios and Townhouse Studios in the UK and its release had been expected as early as 1992[10] but was not completed until 1995. The album is the first installment of a “trilogy” that went on to include The Drift (2006) and Bish Bosch (2012).

IT’S A BEAUTIFUL NIGHT
FROM HERE TO THOSE STARS

feathers on the sides
Of my fingers

IT’S A BEAUTIFUL NIGHT
FROM HERE TO THOSE
TREMBLING STARS

and the feathers so
Fresh
And the nerves so
Fresh

Do you swear
The breastbone
Was bare

I saw it
And made my
Escape

Do you have
Any doubt
That he slept
In that bed

I can only repeat
I never saw
Him

Better listen
Before you fly
All over your
Man

Better listen
Before I spill
You in

if you could
Turn on your
Side

move your touch
To that hip

Easy noweasy now

it’s a beautiful
Night

Garcia
A cigarette
For the
Prisoner

THAT RIBBON CRACK
LIKE THIS ONE AND
THIS ONE CRACK LIKE
THOSE OVER THERE AND
THOSE OVER THERE CRACK
LIKE THESE TWO

BRINGING THOSE STRUTTERS
BRINGING THOSE STRUTTERS

AND THAT ONE CRACKS
LIKE THESE DO AND
THESE DO JUST LIKE
THIS OVER HERE AND
THIS OVER HERE

And out on the rim

All the calcium planets
Growing in
The darkness
All over the
Body
The flapping body

clickety click
Clickety
Click

I have a greenlight
For fifty thousand

It was the month of
July
We had more in or
Going out

You were responsible
For rolling stock

I acn only repeat
I never saw him
In bed

Do you know what
Happened to most
Of the children

She opened the
Tent
To tame a morset
Of air

before the sun

came up
