about

Rough Terrain were a popular Devon band of the late 80s playing a set of mostly their own songs with a few covers at many bars and theatres.

Exit Stage Deaf was the tour name on the posters that Rough Terrain would put up before a show.

This album was recorded in two lumps - the first five songs were recorded at Howell Road, Haldon Road and The Riverside Club in Exeter in the summer of 1987 and the last four were recorded at Daylight Recording Studios, Honiton in the summer of 1988.

Track Name: Same Old Road Again
SAME OLD ROAD AGAIN
Now I know it’s hard
The struggle and pain
You just get up on your feet
And you’re in trouble again
Now I know it’s hard
You don’t have to tell me
But when you say: “Let’s play it again!”
Just what do you mean?
There’s that look in your eyes
I think you’re telling me lies

And we’re walking back down that same old road again
We will come to the same old end
The time has come to be moving on
It’s safe to say that it’s over and done

Nothing is easy
Nothing in this world
Should make us change our minds
And get together again
We made a good sound
Ideas were found
But it seems we all move
In different ways
Look into the eyes
Deceitfully wise

And we’re walking back down that same old road again
We will come to the same old end
The time has come to be moving on
It’s safe to say that it’s over and done

And we’re walking back down that same old road again
We will come to the same old end
The time has come to be moving on
It’s safe to say that it’s over and done

Track Name: The Warning
THE WARNING
The world’s going crazy but what can we do
Confusion and madness all around you
Read the signs, heed the warning

Enemy aircraft darken the sky
Sirens are screaming “We’re all going to die!”
Read the signs, heed the warning

A world that’s in trouble is no place to be
So come from the heavens, come set us free
Read the signs, heed the warning

Track Name: Down at the Elephant Fayre
DOWN AT THE ELEPHANT FAYRE
It’s the summertime and you know what that means
Better get your tent and your sleeping bag
You better get out your thumb and stand by the side of the road
You better get yourself ready for another crazy time
Down at the Elephant Fayre

Put your hip clothes on and see who’s going too
You better suss that lift or they’ll be hitching too
Try to find out who’s playing, not that you really care
Better get yourself ready for another crazy time
Down at the Elephant Fayre
Down at the Elephant Fayre

There’s milk and honey of a different kind
There’s fun and laughs, enough to blow your mind
Anything you could need you will surely find
Better get yourself ready for another crazy time
Down at the Elephant Fayre
Down at the Elephant Fayre
Down at the Elephant Fayre
Down at the Elephant Fayre
Down at the Elephant Fayre

Track Name: Starlight Dream
STARLIGHT DREAM
Obscured by a light in the corner of an eye
Awakening from a dream held in the sky
Stars shine bright, galactic night
Pathways to other worlds
Moving through the spacelanes tonight
The star chasers

A shaft of light stretches dawn across the sky
Breezes like fond memories now blow
A cosmic flight on wings so light
Through patterns, colours, lives
Loving it and hoping for some more
The dream makers

Track Name: Won't You Come Around My Way
WON’T YOU COME AROUND MY WAY
Well I’ve come around here and I ain’t doing much
Just paying a visit to keep in touch
After a while I try the upstairs flat
There’s nothing to say when we’ve run out of chat

Well I knock on the door of this guy I hardly know
And he greets me
I stay for a while then I’m wanting to go
But this other guy’s got something on his knee
What could that be…?!

Won’t you come around my way
Won’t you come around my way
Won’t you come around my way
Won’t you come around my way

There’s four of us here, we’re not saying a word
One’s looking out of the window
We’re sitting around and we can hear the sounds
Of music on the stereo
And rustling…

Won’t you come around my way
Won’t you come around my way
Won’t you come around my way
Won’t you come around my way

Won’t you come around my way
Won’t you come around my way
Won’t you come around my way
Won’t you come around my way
Won’t you come around my way
Won’t you come around my way
Won’t you come around my way
Won’t you come around my way

I hear a click and I see a spark so I turn around
In the centre of a cloud of smoke
I see a man with a big grin on his face
And who can blame him

Won’t you come around my way
Won’t you come around my way
Won’t you come around my way
Won’t you come around my way

Track Name: Two Timer
TWO TIMER
Low down dirty mean double crosser
Slow down, make you scream, call a copper
I want to give you a warning about a woman that I know
Just when you think she’s yours you won’t be the only one
She’ll play you around, she’ll move around
She’ll lay you down

Two timer two timer two timer two timer
Two timer two timer two timer
She’ll lay you low

I had her for a while
Was a very short while
I had her, made me smile
Was a very broad smile
But then I found about this other guy
And he found out about me
She’ll play you around, she’ll move around
She’ll lay you down

Two timer two timer two timer two timer
Two timer two timer two timer
She’ll lay you low

Black eye, don’t know why, howling on the sidewalk
Scream, shout, sort it out, come and have a good talk
It’s time to decide on what we must do
And I think that I will be leaving you
You play me around, you move around
You lay me down

Two timer two timer two timer two timer
Two timer two timer two timer
She’ll lay you low
