And Round Again And past mistakes are now second hand Experience and grains of sand That slipped through fingers and fell to earth Revealing light and much of worth Now in this landscape of red and green New mornings dance upon the screen, Foresight comes then fades from view All this is meshed with thoughts of you And people talk of poetry As if it’s somewhere else Foreign theatre We’re too impressed It drags us round, and round again And people talk of poetry As if it’s somewhere else Let’s escape; take a seaside walk Far from the numbers, where we can talk Ban spectators, shut out the sound Keep it close and go to ground Check the muse for the going rate Muddle through this middle-eight Say what we must; must have our say Thoughts get tangled; words get in the way And people talk… And past mistakes are now second hand Experience and grains of sand That slipped through fingers and fell to earth Revealing light and much of worth Now in this landscape of red and green New mornings dance upon the screen Foresight comes then fades from view All this is meshed with thoughts of you And people talk…

Equity It’s a fine line It’s a fine line, baby It’s a fine line This is your equity Your tolling bell A fine line Crossed Cut And dry The deal. It’s a real deal And the sun comes up and shines, again And the stars and the moon light up the dark And the crow returns, it always knows And so it goes, and so it goes This is your equity Your question Marked A bargain closed And done This is your equity Your river Running dry No rhyme or reason No reason why And the sun comes up and shines, again… Your equity Your fine line Your tolling bell Your question Marked No rhyme no reason No reason rhymes This is your equity This is your fine line And the sun comes up and shines, again…

Big Sleep With a sideways glance She asked my name Hey! What do you say to that? Taken by surprise Bewitched by her eyes Curiosity Curiosity kills cats And as the evening went by We laughed just to hide The mind plays The cruelest of jokes But a bond was made After the final charade We turned left And moved out into coats One more dream One more dream One more dream In this big sleep And all through the night Under the moonlight Just like agents We traded clues And all we could see We were caught, caught to be free And then we swapped Everything we knew One more dream… And like a well-rehearsed band We arrived at a plan But dived And started to keep From the route that we’d laid A root must have strayed Into one more dream In this big sleep One more dream… River runs River deep Blood red Moonlight Curiosity Silver We dressed up We traded clues In this big sleep River runs River deep Blood red Silver and blood

Light A Candle Light a candle; ring a bell Consult the numbers; cast a spell Say a prayer and make believe That something else will bring us peace Blank the mirror; avoid the self Seek redemption off the shelf Abdicate. Escape. And waste away on opiates Scape the goat Stone the crows Fleece the sheep And turn blind eye… Spread the cards; worry the beads Divine the water; read the leaves Call the pardoner; pour some wine Seek indulgence; buy some time Absolve the guilt with ritual scam Wipe the slate. Clean. Shazam! Confess the wrong and it’ll be OK To do it all again another day Are we stupid? Are we dumb? Are we evil? Why are we numb… to all the pain and suffering? Scape the goat Stone the crows Fleece the sheep And make out that no one knows Chase the silver, chase the gold Corrupt the young, forget the old Divide and rule, pull apart Insult the truth and go breaking hearts Acts of kindness bear no cost A little love helps heal the loss So spare a thought and spare some time For those caught in the firing line Are we stupid? Are we dumb? Are we evil? Why are we numb… to all the pain and suffering? Scape the goat Stone the crows Fleece the sheep And make out that no one knows…

Hey! Hey! What’s going on? Everyone’s singing the same old song If we don’t wise up we’re all doomed And rock ‘n’ roll will be gone by June And rock ‘n’ roll will be gone What do we want? Happiness is a discount store We shop to plug the gap Razor wire comfort Save the church and flag Mercy is an absentee And its cold outside in the pouring rain And its cold outside in the pouring rain Hey! What’s going on? What do we want? Where are we going? What have we done? Where are we going? What have we done? Hey! What’s going on? Sail across the water Walk a thousand miles or more Scarecrows sowing seeds of fear Paper shuts the door May you feel the love you’re given And may you give the love you feel May you feel the love you’re given And may you give the love you feel May you feel the love you’re given

Jigsaw It’s been right here and now I see it in other’s eyes I often hear it called aloud, amid distant cries Easily missed, easily found It pours just like rain and splashes up from the ground Stream of consciousness runs through the head Peeling off masks, unpicking threads It came so close, that nothing else mattered It fell into place and the cover just shattered It’s all a great big jigsaw event.. I picked up the pieces that lay on the ground Put them together, and smiled at what I had found Could I believe it? Believe it or not The answers I’d sought, I’d already got In the palm of my hand It’s all a great big jigsaw event.. The runaround, the ebb and flow People come, people go You bump into some and bounce back again Or hang with others; it’s a means to an end Of finding some space upon this merry-go-round Among the beggars and poets, the kings and the clowns Amid the fear and the loathing, the sex and the greed The having and holding, the hunger and need It’s all a great big jigsaw event..

Orange Light Orange light, blue meaning City beats a numb feeling Commercial break, desire We can’t wait; we get wired The daily grind, the soap mixture Beggars in the street, what a picture! We’ve poisoned air and water Look at the state we’re in In this palace of false gods We spell our own fate A stopwatch has pinned us To a sell-by date We’ve corrupted foundations Created divide In the wake of our fruitless And fearful drive Up go the prices To finance cutting costs The sick and poor get beaten Headlines front the loss Loss is all that matters To the other side a gain From trading in the floating And working on the game With calculator smile Sleight of hand and take Pinstripe All confident fake In this palace of false gods… The daily grind, the soap mixture Beggars in the street, what a picture! We’ve poisoned air and water Look at the state we’re in In this palace of false gods…

Crossroads We’re all heading for the crossroads The Devil’s hanging there We’re all on our own with no way back home Are you happy getting scared? We’re all chasing down tomorrow We wear our dreams away We hunger after romance And consume another day We’re all heading for the crossroads The Devil’s hanging there We stand in line to run down time Like sheep we stop and stare The winds of war are blowing Bankers rub their hands The girls are naked and they dance Of the jewelry you beware We’re all on our own, no way back home We’re all on our own, no way back home We stand in line to run down time We’re on our own, no way back home We’re all heading for the crossroads They serve firewater there They talk in tongues the whole nightlong And wear funky wide-eyed stares We’ll be wearing next to nothing With teeth all pearly white Under neon lights a go-go We’ll be dancing through the night We’re on our own, no way back home We’re on our own, no way back home We stand in line to run down time We’re on our own, no way back home We’re all chasing down tomorrow We wear our dreams away We hunger after romance And consume another day We’re all heading for the crossroads The Devil’s hanging there We stand in line to run down time Like sheep we stop and stare We’re on our own, no way back home We’re on our own, no way back home We stand in line to run down time We’re on our own, no way back home

Fall Heaven’s in you and your wings from above Your eyes shine light; I’m falling in love With your lips that speak, your lips that kiss You’ve a hold like magic, a touch that is bliss Here I go, again Falling in love And here I go Falling in love Heaven’s in you and the gift that you bear You radiate peace; perfume the air The spell you cast wards off fear; Problems fade, troubles disappear Here I go, again Falling in love And here I go Falling in love Heaven’s in you and the song that you sing You call forth truth with the love that you bring In your embrace, my heart’s wrapped; I’m stoned, honey trapped Here I go, again Falling in love And here I go Falling in love
