Track Name: The Line That We're Walking
The line that we’re walking
Is not always smooth
Not always clear
How to stick with its groove
We’re finding our balance
Keeping in time
Tripping on treasure
We’ll make it play fine
Tripping on treasure
We’ll make it play fine

Just gotta do what we just gotta do
Do what we do what we do what we do
Just gotta do what we just gotta do
Do what we do wap wap wap wap be doo

So much is said
Yet unspoken
Sparks come to life
Pipe-dreams are smoking
Wafts weave from lapels
Lest we forget
What ‘s breathed out
Gets caught in our net
What ‘s breathed out
Gets caught in our net










Craziness lies
Either side of our line
Pedestrian right
Patinas the shine
Sudden death on the left
Suicidal implosion
Heeding signs
Tho it’s hard to be certain
We’re heeding the signs
Tho it’s hard to be certain

Just gotta do what we just gotta do
Do what we do what we do what we do
Just gotta do what we just gotta do
Do what we do wap wap wap wap be doo

When the line that we’re walking
Inclines to a blade
Watch closely
Ignore the pain
If we fall either side
There’ll be no getting up
So spread out our arms
Entrust
Spread out our arms
Entrust

And if we fall
We fall
And if we fall
We fall
And it’s an end
To it all



Protecting and serving
The best that we can
Insurrecting and swerving
From when we began
The misunderstood
Are forgiven their misdeeds
The truth is just that
Nobody mind-reads
The truth is just that
Nobody mind-reads

Reality sliced
One’s own reflective
Trick-mirror vision
A particular perspective
It’s why even when
We’re doing our utmost
Parallel minds meet
At alternate end posts
Parallel minds meet
At alternate end posts
Parallel minds meet
At alternate end posts

Just gotta do what we just gotta do
Do what we do what we do what we do
Just gotta do what we just gotta do
Do what we do wap wap wap wap be doo
Be do wap be doooo
We doooooooooo
Track Name: Seasonal Disorder
A seasonal affection’s
Disordered me today
I am sleazily dischordant
And affected in my ways
The order of the seasons
Affects me, when I say
I’m gonna lose myself today

I’m gonna lose myself today
I’m gonna lose myself today

Gonna dip in the fountains
To amplify the rays
I’m gonna lie in the fountains
And amplify the rays
I’m gonna die in the fountains
Overdosing on the rays
I’m gonna lose myself today
I’m gonna lose myself today

Strip off inhibition
And burn away the blues
Stripped of inhibitions
I can burn away the blues
Stripping exhibition
Burning the blues
I’m gonna lose
I’m gonna lose
I’m gonna lose myself today

I’m gonna lose myself today
I’m gonna lose myself today

Gonna dip in the fountains
And amplify the rays
I’ll streak across the bear-pit
And amplify their gaze
I’ll strip my inhibitions
And teach you how to play
I’m gonna lose myself today
I’m gonna lose myself today

Meet me in the fountains
Amplify me when I play
Lose me in the fountains
And drink me when I say
I’m gonna lose myself today
I’m gonna lose myself today
I’m gonna lose myself today
I’m gonna lose myself today
I’m gonna lose myself today
Track Name: The Sun Is Up
The sun is up
And heaven’s in the sky
I could eat you for my breakfast
You know the reason why
The sun is up
And heaven’s in my eye
You’re my lunch and supper
My peachy apple-pie

The sun is up
And heaven’s in the sky
The sun is up
And heaven’s in my eye

Today’s the day I’ve waited for
Tomorrow’s just for fun
Yesterday has gone before
And the playing’s just begun
Today’s the day I’ve waited for
Tomorrow might be fun
Yesterday has gone and
Now I’m singing in the sun

I’ve been wading through treacle,
Lost in the mire,
Sailing on a slow boat,
Unbalanced on the high wire.
I’ve been caught in the doldrums,
Stuck in reverse.
Cut the nose off my face
Just to be perverse.

But my day has dawned
And tomorrow will run and run
Yesterday has gone
And the playing’s just begun
Today’s the day I’ve waited for
Tomorrow could be fun
Yesterday has gone and
Now I’m singing in the sun

The moon will rise
And heaven I will spy
I’ll find you in the starlight
You’re my reason why
The moon will rise
And in heaven I will lie
Let’s skip the light fandango
Turn cartwheels in the sky

The moon will rise
And heaven I will spy
The moon will rise
And in heaven I will lie

Tonight’s the night I’ve waited for
Tomorrow’s yesterday
A tiny taste of what’s in store
This moment can stay
Tonight’s the night I’ve waited for
The moon is in our eyes
A tiny taste of what’s in store
Turn cartwheels in the sky

The sun is up
And heaven’s in the sky
The sun is up
And heaven’s in my eye
Track Name: Nite Lite
Oh! what a beautiful moon
Bright hemisphere
Bathed in swathes
Of high-lit cloud

Rapt in a billowing scarf
Thrown across the sky
Entertained by stars
Pin-pricked and perfect
The chill brings the best out
In the dark
And the light
Of the night

Oh! what a beautiful moon
Bright hemisphere
Bathed in swathes
Of high-lit cloud

Brilliant, dissected disc
Pock-marked and perfect
Splendidly reposed
In a celestial deck-chair
Watching the world sail by
Beneath its heaven
The half-lit
Half-lit night-flit glory

Oh! what a beautiful moon
Bright hemisphere
Bathed in swathes
Of high-lit cloud

Caught up, and bound in our orbit
Its pulling and pushing
The light and the dark
Of the night and the day
Circuitous distance extending
The pushing and pulling
Of billions of years
Gradually fades away
And tides will turn no more
The ebbing and flowing
Under the half-bright sky-light
A-swing and a-sway

Oh! what a beautiful moon
Bright hemisphere
Bathed in swathes
Of high-lit cloud

Rapt in a billowing scarf
Thrown across the sky
Entertained by stars
Pin pricked, perfect.
Brilliant, dissected disc
Pock-marked, perfect

Oh! what a beautiful moon
Bright hemisphere
Bathed in swathes
Of high-lit cloud
Oh! what a beautiful moon
Bright hemisphere
Bathed in swathes…
Track Name: The Death and Life of Sally McGuire
On a bench by the river
The stragglers lurch out of tune
Early morning condensation
Soaking her party shoes
It's a tale, of a time
One for whom fate had marooned
Not gilded and mirrored but cut into pieces
A life that ended too soon

A river, a city
The waves lap the shoreline
In pretty much regular time
In the wind I stand on the bridge looking down
As the river runs by

Alone with the flickering shadow below
Holds her collar; I ask her the time
I say “it’s late” as the watch slips from my wrist
Into the currents and turns into ice

And she sang and she danced
And she sang and she danced
And she sang and she danced
And she sang and she danced

A young girl runs home from the quarry
To a new dress that’s hanging outside
From the life she chipped out of the island
To the mist on the horizon line

There’s a boat in the bay
It’s been circling all day
And releasing a cloud
I’ve been floating away
From the shells on the beach
That I left to collect
And my breathing is shallow
and broken and weak

As I sink down and down
To the river where I waited
Appears, out of reach

And then catching the watch
And then answering fine
To the girl on the bridge
Who was lost before time…..

And she sang and she danced
And she sang and she danced
And she sang and she danced
And she sang and she danced
And she sang and she danced
And she sang and she danced
And she sang and she danced
And she sang and she danced
Track Name: Life on a Stage
I feel like I'm playing myself
In a play about me again
I'm watching a bad actor
Mess up my part again
Missing his queues and fluffing his lines
Paying his dues and taking his time
I'm falling apart again

What's it all doing to my mental health
It's like it's all happening to somebody else
I push it away coz I've not really dealt with it all

A fission of mind and body and me
The audience cheering me on can't you see
I was found now I'm lost
And I’m bound Oh the cost
To you. To me
What is happening to me?

Treading the boards with splintered feet
The stuttering words the burning heat
The lime light shining down on me
But I am him and he is me

The score is out of key
The audience is me
I'm singing out of tune
I echo round the room
A packed house for my last night
Of a show that must go on despite
The cast are all out of sorts
There's booing from the stalls
For god's sake just drop the curtain
We don't want an ovation
See you take a bow
To the one
who loves you now?

It seems like I'm living my life on a stage
It seems like I'm living my life on a stage
It seems like I'm living my life on a stage
It seems like I'm living my life on a stage
It seems like I'm loving my life on a stage
It seems like I'm loving my life on a stage
It seems like I'm loving my life on a stage
It seems like I'm loving my life, my life on a stage
Track Name: I Don't Dream About You Anymore
I don’t dream about you anymore
You don’t seep into my sleep no more
All my thoughts of you had disappeared
Till I wrote this song for you
This is the song I wrote for you

I used to dream about you every night.
You seeped into my sleep till it was light
My thoughts were plagued by you
I couldn’t forget
My God, I used to long for you
This is the song I wrote for you
This is the song I wrote for you

But that was then
And this is now
Things have changed
I wonder how
I’m not destroyed. I’m not destroyed
It’s only made me stronger
It’s only made me stronger

I dreamed about you every night
You seeped into my sleep till light
Then I found a place
I found a different place
I found a different place and time
I made my way and moved away from you
This is the song I wrote for you
This is the song I wrote for you

So that was then
And this is now
Things have changed
I wonder how
I’m not destroyed
I’m not destroyed.
You’ve only made me stronger
You’ve only made me stronger

I’m not destroyed
I’m not destroyed
You’ve only made me stronger
You’ve only made me strong
Track Name: Fraying
Twisting dreams unravel the seams
Of the cloth binding esteem
In a tangled-up mind and lives living within
The pierced heart and the tattooed on skin
With knitted needles of stories and coiled up woes
Of the finding and losing and hiding of treasured troves

So I’m fraying, a little
it seems
Some unravelling just at the seams
So I’m fraying, a little
it seems
Some unravelling just at the seams

Flattened waves remove shade
From the deep harbouring cave
Where there’s hopeless potential
To caress the core and essential
Shell of a person
Who was and who is
Turning tides to the rise of the lost emphasis
To caress the core and essential
Shell of a person
Who was and who is
Fraying

Fraying the seams
Of the ravelled up dreams
Is just what it seems
And I’m fraying
A little

Banging heads rattle brains
Already shattered and shamed
By a compulsive invective
A self-punching reflective
That skews and derides and smacks
At the pride and blatantly stamps on the facts
A self-punching reflective
Compulsive invective.

At the moment it seems
At the moment it seems
At the moment it seems
At the moment it seems
At the moment it seems
At the moment it seems
At the moment it seems
Track Name: Red River
Come to me
Lying naked in the snow
Come, tear out my heart
rip though my bones
And then just go

Blood steams forth
Melts a river as it flows
An expression of life, leaving me
Last traces taint the…

Snow stained red
Heart poured out
Left for dead
Time’s run out
Snow stained red
Heart poured out
Left for dead
Time’s run out

White corpse lying,
Naked in the snow.
Ribs splintered, soul shattered
The cold wind blows
Last breath breathed out
Nobody will know
You killed what you came for
Shed your footsteps in the…

Snow stained red
Heart poured out
Left for dead
Time’s run out
Snow stained red
Heart poured out
Left for dead
Time’s run out

You took my heart
Shook my heart
I let you shake me
I couldn’t take it anymore
You stoked my heart
Broke my heart
I let you break me
And then take me in the…

Snow stained red
Heart poured out
Left for dead
Time’s run out
Snow stained red
Heart poured out
Left for dead
Time’s run out

Snow stained red
Heart poured out
You left me for dead
Let my light burn out
Snow stained red
Heart poured out
Left for dead
Time’s run out
Snow stained red
Heart poured out
You left me for dead
Let my light burn out
Track Name: Horizontal Fall
Lighting my last fag off a house fire
I breathe, and I wonder why
As the flames flicker brightly beside me
Alive, but never so high

Why do I linger and wonder?
Do I care about any at all?
Someone once said, as I listened
‘My life is a horizontal fall’
So why do I linger and wonder?
Do I care too much is all?
Someone once said, as I listened
‘My life is a horizontal fall’
‘My life is a horizontal fall’

Things happen, and I kinda let them
Time passes and people move on
I need to tread lightly, yet boldly
Make my move before chances are gone

As I walk away from the house fire
I turn, and I wonder how
All the the times in my life that have lead here
Mean that all that's important is now
All the the times in my life that have lead here
Mean that all that's important is now
Mean that all that's important is now
All the the times in my life that have lead here
Mean that all that's important is now
Track Name: Lost and Bewildered
The lost
And bewildered
Where to begin?
The homeless
The hopeless
Not programmed to win
Left handed
Foreign
Subject to fits
A stutterer
A mutterer
Those losing their wits

‘We really don’t like you
You’re different
You’re weird
You threaten
The mind-set
With which we were reared
We really don’t like you
You’re ugly
You’re queer
You’ll dance
On our tombstones
When our end is near’

The awkward
The lonely
Wayward peaceniks
Runt of the litter
Rebels
Yearning a fix
Creative
Eccentric
Quite possibly mad
The loony
And the loopy
And the frequently sad

All the miscreant souls
In the world
We salute you
Fight for your rights
And believe
In what you do
Fight for your freedom
Your art and your life
Believe in your beauty
And be the zeitgeist

Off-colour
Off-culture
Pushed to the side
Do the radical deviants
Deserve a rough ride?
Artistic
Autistic
Not willing to bend
To the whip hand
Cos we know
We’re free in the end

All the miscreant souls
In the world
We salute you
Fight for your rights
And believe
In what you do
Fight for your freedom
Your art and your life
Believe in your beauty
And be the zeitgeist
Fight for your freedom
Fight for your life
Believe in the beauty
And be the zeitgeist
Track Name: Turning Inside Out of Myself
Turning inside
Out of myself
And tumbling
Over and over and over
Up and out
Of a flow
That I'll make
And then I will follow
Found and lost
Again
A life long
Taken
Though not long enough
Yet
To know
Or care
Or to care enough
Above and beyond
The short and the song
Of it all
Or not at all
In fact
Or fantasy
And I remember the time
As a child
When I stretched time
I speeded and slowed down
All at once
When I breathed under water
And when I looked and looked and looked
And faces changed
Transformed people
Into something else
A fleeting taste of magic
That I conjured
Upside down
Inside out
Channelling
The might and the maybe...
