UNTITLED #1
you say you're like a tree, or a bus stop
with your hands by your side
lets say you're like a field of tulips
cheap gold flowers in the sky
if the cavalry comes, is it really no suprise?
count the calory cops, i'm allowing alibis
 
drag the shine off your stool, and leave me, it's raining outside
count your life like that strange and different, i dont want lullabies
paralysed on parade and ready to drop, you know,
amazed and a mess, you may just stop me and go
 
(well he said he was a vegetarian, well there's animals in water)

here come the calory cops, is it really no suprise?
and if the cavalry comes i'm allowing alibis

count your life like some strange and different, go one word at a time
can't you hear the bells ringing?
get your hands off my sky
in a place where the words all just fall apart
with the sound of a stutter, a mutter in your heart

da da da da...

clock the spokes off your wheels, its safer just to ride
put your heart in the back, i've not once seen you smile

you say you're like a tree, or a bus stop...


FROM YOUR FAVOURITE SKY
do you dare,
take a breath?
do you dream of a tragic death?
i know you do

do you wail, do you weep?
do you sing yourself to sleep,
you delicate flower

and so what is love?
and who am i?
to dare to pull the stars from your favourite sky

you were born
forth from joy
you're every girl and boy
you know you are, you know you are

and you dress,
like a dame
and you burn on a catholic flame
by the hours, by the hours

and so what is love?
and who am i?
to dare to pull the stars from your favourite sky

you possess, s'avoir faire
put cheap bleach on your hair
you know you do
you know you do

do you dare,
take a breath?
do you dream of a tragic death?
you delicate flower

and so what is love?
and who am i?
to dare to pull the stars from your favourite sky

and so what is love?
and who am i?
to dare to pull the stars from your favourite sky

from your favourite sky


LIFE IN A DAY
life, in a day
fleet of foot
full of grace
love, mercy miles
freedom bought you, such a filthy child

life, in a day
life in a day

stick your jokes, your hoax in a box
chew the chains, loose the locks
lease your mind and find a better rate
if freedom feels, like a first mistake

life, in a day
life in a day

life, in a day
see you hoof, and move your feet of clay
let it go you know, or let it break
if freedom feels, like a first mistake

life, in a day
life in a day

(you got your education)
(you got your education)
(you got your education)
(you got your education)
(you got your education)


HERE FOR THE WORLD

and all you've got in it

i've nothing missing
i've got you all here

we're here for the world
and all you've got in it

you're here for the world
for the world
you're here for the world
and all they've got in it


A STRANGE ARRANGEMENT OF COLOUR 
a strange arrangement of colours,
you found your feet where you put her

i'm after you, you're after me
the things that we say, the things that we see

we've got to be reminded
where did you go?
and what did you see, when you were there?
what did you leave? leave? leave? leave?

the light that is reflected,
the times that you rejected

you're after me, I'm after you,
the things that we say
the things that we do
we've got to be good looking

where did you go?
and what did you see, when you were there?
what did you leave? leave? leave? leave?

a lie that is rejected,
a time that we reflected

i'm after you, you're after me
the things that we say, the things that we see

we've got to be reminded
where did you go?
and what did you see, when you were there?
what did you leave? leave? leave? leave?

a strange arrangement of colour


CUCKOO
you stand like a rock, on top of the mountain
run like a river, fall like a fountain
the grass still is growing, the wind still is blowing, about you

reels like a strain, drinks like a scholar
drown in this town, you can feel for one dollar
since when were you bitten, where were you smitten

cuckoo
cuckoo
cuckoo
cuckoo

looks like a date, but seems like your brother
seems like your father, your sister, your mother
threw out in chains, wildhood and childhood, cuckoo

drinks like a rogue, looks like no other
looks like a dream, one youll discover
seems like its bitten, whence were you smitten, cuckoo

cuckoo
cuckoo
cuckoo
cuckoo

looks like a saint, drinks like a scholar
dreams in this town you can buy for one dollar
whence were you smitten, where were you bitten, cuckoo

wrench like a chain, looks like no other
your father, your mother, your sister, your brother
have all since long gone, all since long gone

cuckoo
cuckoo
cuckoo
cuckoo

stand like a rock
you stand like a rock
cuckoo
cuckoo


MERMAIDS
does it feel like religion,
does it crush your old ideas?
well fold me in paper
i've got some here

and show me the warrant
to which i will attest
put me in handcuffs, or give it a rest

the light through the windows
cast doubt on the mermaids
and they sing at the bottom of the sea

you've run out of business
in light of what you want
you've come wielding plastic
and gone straight to the front
you've rejigged and counted,
its amounted, not to much
i'll give you my credence, if thats not enough

the light through he window
casts down on the mermaids
and they sink to the bottom of the sea

you're reading the letters that no-one ever wrote
i'm moving through something
i travel in hope
so read me the warrant, to which i will attest
put me in handcuffs, or give it a rest

the light through he window
casts doubt on the mermaids
and they sing at the bottom of the sea


PROOF
hey, could you stand another drink?
i'm better when I don't think,
seems to get me through

say, d'you wanna spin another line,
like we had a good time?
not that I need proof

swell, we're living in a hotel
someone's ringing my bell
in a room without a view

hey, heard you read another book,
should I take another look?
who am I, without you?

hey, could you stand another drink
i'm better when I don't think
seems to get me through

say d'you wanna spin another line,
like we had a good time?
not that I need proof

swell, we're living in a hotel
someone's ringing my bell,
in a room without a view

hey, heard you read another book,
should I take another look?
who am I without you?

la la la la lala la la...

 

SOLD AS SEEN
you know the place where faces fit
i've heard they've got a name for it
lets go back to the sandy shores
the velvet skies are ours once more

we're fake, for real
our minds are steel
our eyes are green
we're sold as seen

i heard you joined the main parade
a hero dressed in ticker-tape
and go if all the worlds a trick
i'll take the sky and measure it
so leave your favourite photograph
the only thing you had that lasts
and go back to the sandy shores
the velvet skies are ours once more

there all for real
there is no deal
theyre sold as seen

you know the place where faces fit
i've heard they've got a name for it
lets go back to the sandy shores
the velvet skies are yours once more

you're fake, for real
your minds are steel
your eyes are green
you're sold as seen

sold as seen

we're fake, for real
our minds are steel
our eyes are green
we're sold as seen

sold as seen

sold as seen

 

NOT A REASONABLE MAN
you're not having this, and i'm not having that
i'm not a reasonable man, i've come for it back

let 'em all in, don't you know that i love a crowd
but i won't get the jokes, 'cos the laughters too loud

i never was slight, or silent with you
for one hour of delight, in the gathering gloom
i've no reservations, i've got no room
for these souvenirs, to bring back for you

let 'em all in, don't you know that i love a crowd
but they won't get the jokes, 'cos the laughters too loud

and i'm not the man you think i am at all
i was learning to walk, and starting to crawl

i've no reservations, i've got no room
for these souvenirs, to bring back to you

and you're not having this, and i'm not having that
i'm not a reasonable man, i've come for it back



3 FEET TALL
3 feet tall,
with a head like a bowling ball
can't get up from where you fall
d'you bring this back to me?

whats it for?
stood in the clothes that you once wore
stood up from the night before
d'you drink and never leave?

take my hand across the sand, and lead me out to sea
heaven sent the money we spent, give it back to me

loneliness,
its got your name and your new address
when it walks in the place is a mess,
and it drinks and never leaves

whats it for?
stood in the clothes that you once wore
stood up from the night before
do you dream and never sleep?

heaven sent the money we spent, give it back to me
take my hand across the sand and lead me out to sea

take my hand across the sand and lead me out to sea
heaven sent the money we spent, give it back to me

fortune favours
money takers
get a sound and see
sounds 'strumental
fashion central, give it back to me



THE SAME DEEP WATER AS ME
swim out to the ocean
drown your thoughts out at sea
and dip your hands in the water
same deep water as me

you've been watching for cloudburst
you've been praying for rain
drench your soul in the water
cleanse your heart of the stain
cleanse your heart of the stain

the river of love
flows deep through the night
rolls you in with the waves
drags you out with the tides

swim out to the ocean
and drown our thoughts out at sea
dipped your hands in the water
the same deep water as me
the same deep water as me
