Track Name: And Round Again
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…
Track Name: Equity
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…

Track Name: Big Sleep
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
Track Name: Race The Dogs
Race The Dogs

Ragged trouser
Flat-cap thinker
Pot of tea [tee]total drinker

Earth and salt
Philosophy
Nothing’s ever guaranteed

That everything
Will work out fine
Keep it cool, trip the line

Nervous eyes
What comes next?

News junkie
Keeps abreast
Always online, knows how to invest

When the facts change
Does your mind?
Are your brains washed? Have you been fried?

Are your brains washed?
Have you been fried?

Race the dogs
Seconds out
Rebel rebel rebel
Twist and shout

Wise cracker
Go lucky
Mirror mirror, shop shop shop

Bling bling
What a flash sod
What a lot of great big wristwatch

Mickey taker
A real smart aleck
Like’s a laugh, he’s Jack the lad


Are his brains washed?
Has he been fried?

Race the dogs
Seconds out
Rebel rebel rebel
Twist and shout

Life’s what you make it
You are what you eat
You paint your own picture
You keep your own beat
You can use or abuse it
Play trick or play treat
But life’s what you make it, baby
You keep your own beat

Ragged trouser
Flat-cap thinker
Pot of tea [tee]total drinker

Earth and salt
Philosophy
Nothing’s ever guaranteed

Never had a bad word to say
Worked real hard and then passed away
Love unconditional

Race the dogs
Seconds out
Rebel rebel rebel
Twist and shout

Track Name: Oh Yeah
Oh yeah

And you… run through my veins
And I... want you again
This longing makes me ache

And you... are inside my head
And I… I want you in bed
Desire… it makes me shake

And you, you keep me awake
You keep me up, you keep me up all night

I get wasted on your perfume
Tangled in your hair
Pulled apart by your hungry heart
Oblivion
Oh yeah
Uh huh
That’s right
Oh yeah

And you… haunt my dreams
Yeah you, you turn me obscene
For want, I almost break

And you, you keep me awake
You keep me up, up all night

I get wasted on your perfume…

And you… are my temptation
Yeah you… sweet sensation
Desire, makes me shake

And you, you keep me awake
You keep me up, up all night

I get wasted on your perfume…

Track Name: Light A Candle
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…
Track Name: Hey!
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
Track Name: Jigsaw
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..
Track Name: Orange Light
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…
Track Name: Crossroads
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
Track Name: Fall
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
