Track Name: Halo Of Stars
Life is amazing! Just look at what we’ve got
Life is spectacular - only one shot

My world is heavenly, cause I know who we are
Living in harmony under a halo of stars
Stars

Blue and gold
The sky and the sun
Circles of friends and I won't lose the one
Our lives are heaven sent
We know who we are
Under my halo of stars

Stars Stars Stars Stars

Our lives are heaven sent - we know who we are
Shining celestial under the halo of stars

Stars stars stars stars

Life is amazing! Just look at what we’ve got
Life is spectacular- only one shot

My world is heavenly, cause I know who we are
Living in harmony under a halo of stars

Stars Stars Stars Stars
Track Name: Breakthrough
’ve got one dream
Just one hope
And I’ll be the first to laugh
If it all becomes a joke
If I get a life
I’d be free
If I didn’t have this deep desire
Burning up in me

I’ll break through x 4

It takes years
It might take me years

In my dreams
There are castles in the air
I’ll build them to the skies
If I can get my share
In this life
I know that nothing’s for free
But I’ve always had this deep desire
Burning up in me

I’ll break through x 4

It takes years

I’ll break through x 4
Track Name: Raise The Roof
Get Up, Stand Up, Rise Up, and Raise The Roof
Get Up, Stand Up, Rise Up, and Raise The Roof
Get Up, Stand Up, Rise Up, and Raise The Roof
Get Up, Stand Up, Rise Up, Raise The Roof

I Can Feel The Winds Of Change A Blowing
When You Walk In The Room
My Heart Starts A Jumping
Jumping, Going Boom Boom Boom

Armageddon Time,
Its Far Too Late To Save My Soul
You Took My Breath Away
Not The Only Thing You Stole
I Used To Have A Heart
A Heart That Was Mine All Mine
Now It Rattles Like A Stun Gun
Blowing Empty Shells Across The Thin Red Line

Take It, Make It, Break It, Don’t Fake It
If Love Is Sleeping Wake It
Make Your Cake And Bake It

Sing Hallelujah
Sing The Song
Tell The Truth, Aint that the truth
Praise Creation
Sing Along
It’s time to move,
Let’s Raise The Roof

(Whining Solo)
Let’s Raise The Roof
Hey Hey Hey
Raise The Roof
No Time Like Now -
Raise The Roof Hm Hm
No More Lies
Raise The Roof
Aint That the Truth
Raise The Roof
Track Name: Hide & Seek
You’ll never find me
I’m playing hide and seek
You’ll never find me
I’m playing hide and seek

I’m in the city and everything's so chic
Lying undercover, too drunk to speak
You’ll never see me hiding in the trunk
Laying low, breathing slow, ready for the funk

Wait for the city to close its eyes and go to sleep
Let’s count to ten now
Let’s get invisible
And worry bout the wheres and the whens
All over again
Let’s get invisible
And worry bout the wheres and the whens
Now and then


Refrain:

You hide behind the curtains
You put a gun to my head
But think about the mess you’ll leave
When I’m lying down there dead

It raps against my temple
Leaves grooves upon my skin
It's a hair trigger roulette wheel
Are you out or are you in?
And hey...
Is this really real? x 4

Refrain:

So Continentale!
Dancing cheek to cheek
One in a million
A love unique
I'd like to take take a secret look
Cause your x-ray eyes leave me weak

But you’ll never find me
I’m playing hide and seek
You’ll never find me
I’m playing hide and seek

You’re think you’re cool
But I can see just who you are
You're a crack in the clouds
In a saucerful of stars
Track Name: Chalk Marks In The Rain
Time is graffiti scrawled on a wall
Marks leave their traces on us all
Washing away leaving their stains
Wraps itself around us and runs down the drain
Like chalk marks in the rain

I knew that it was coming from the day that I was born
Heard it in the rhythm ‘cause my heartbeats torn
Might have been a hurricane – the eye of the storm
Might have been the sound of the rustling corn
Now it’s gone like chalk marks in the rain
Like chalk marks in the rain

Break
Sixty seconds to the crash and burn
Sixty seconds and it’s gone
One small sound that decays and dies
Time… (descant of voices)
One moment in time that we forgot to count…
One moment in time that we forgot
Gone like chalk marks in the rain

It’s deep in the night and no-one’s asleep
I bump and grind in my winding-sheet
Cat’s on the rampage, scratching in heat
Tattoos on the retina, beating retreat
Like chalk marks in the rain
chalk marks in the rain
chalk marks in the rain
chalk marks in the rain

Like chalk marks in the rain
Track Name: Immortals
If World War Three is on the way there’s nowhere we can hide
La la las and pillow dark won’t help to stem the tide
So we try cling to something that nothing bad can change:
That we lived our little lifetimes through a bright and golden age

And love will hear my beating heart

We are like marble
We are like granite
We are like air
Like the sphere of a planet
Like the arc of a rainbow rising up to the sky
We are immortal and immortals never die.

And in this last cold day of winter at the keening of the knives
I give thanks to love and nature for keeping us alive
I don’t know where we’re headed before my soul takes flight
So let’s smash the walls of darkness down and step into the light…


And love will heal my breaking heart


We are like diamonds
The core of the sun
Like the stars in the heavens
We are second to none
The arc of a rainbow rising up to the sky
We are immortal and immortals never die.
Track Name: Here Is Where The Heart Is
I’ve walked Picasso’s gardens
Found his sketches on a stone
Taking tea with BB
The two of them alone
Now you’re here with me
And here is where the heart is

I’ve watched electric storms
Kiss the shoreline of the sea
Shimmering and shining
Bright diamondly
Now you’re here with me
Cause Here is where the heart is

I could travel to the moon and back
Never find what I’ve been longing for
Throw my arms around the world
Never find what I’ve been looking for
Cause it’s here at my door
The mirage i’ve been reaching for
Now your here with me
And Here is where the heart is

I’ve wined and dined with princes
Pretenders to the throne
But fairytales and poetry
Are better home grown
And when you’re here with me
Here is where the heart is

Just stay here with me
Where my heart will always be
Where the heart is
Here is where the heart is

I’ve walked Picasso’s footsteps
Found his sketches on a stone
Taking tea with you
The two of us alone
You’re here with me
And here is where the heart is
Track Name: Eighteen Shots
Eighteen shots ring out across the estuary dawn
The white horse runs unbridled ‘cross the sands
The devil fills the night with his moonshine breath
And your precious time runs quickly through the fingers of his hands
Now you’re barefoot in the park
Hiding in the shadows and the doorways
Now you’re helpless in the dark
Lost between the devil and the highway

Take me home to the straggling river
Where the curlews call and the reed beds shiver
As bitter cold as a New York whore
Abandon me to my destiny
On that heron-priested shore

Send me some token that my hope may live
Or that my easeless thoughts may sleep and rest
Send me some honey to make sweet my hive
That in my passions I may hope the best
Send me nor this, send me nor that to ever increase my store
But swear though think’st 'I love thee', and no more

Take me home to the straggling river
Where the oysters sprawl in the salt-bed shimmer
As bitter cold as a New York whore
Abandon me to my destiny
On that heron-priested shore

Eighteen shots ring out across the estuary dawn
The white horse runs unbridled ‘cross the sands
The devil deals the deck with a hand of death
To the funeral march of a Chapel band

Now you’re barefoot in the park
Hiding in the shadows and the doorways
Now you’re helpless in the dark
Lost between the devil and the highway

Take me home to the straggling river
Where the redshanks trawl as the seasons wither
As bitter cold as a New York whore
Abandon me to Eternity
On that heron-priested shore
Track Name: Bumping Into Clouds
It took a little time
Just a second or two
i knew that you’d be mine
Cause my heart chose you
The heavens kind of opened
With a bolt from the blue
Now all i ever think about is you

Bumping into clouds

Stumbling into rainbows
Crashing into snow
You left me without nowhere
Nowhere to go
Now I’m bumping into clouds
Black, black coffee
Stirring up trouble
Stickier than toffee (Molasses and Toffee)

The climate is changing
Gonna bump in the night
The ice caps are melting at the very sight of you
You’re hot, hot, hot!
On a cold cold night
And our love is still smouldering in the morning light

Bumping into clouds
I’m Bumping into clouds
Bumping into clouds
Here we go
Just Bumping into clouds

Bumping into clouds
Running into rain
Watching my lonely days
Running down the drain
Bumping into clouds
Boom Boom Crash!
Jump into the deep end
For a bigger splash

Now everywhere i go I stumble and fall
Bumping into clouds hitting that wall
Boom boom thunder crashing all about my head
Boom boom lightning flashing in and out of bed
Bumping into clouds

I’m bumping into clouds
Running into rain
Watching my lonely days
Running down the drain
The climate is changing
Bump in the night
The ice caps are melting at the very sight of you
You’re hot, hot, hot!
On a cold cold night
And our love is still smouldering in the morning light

Now I’m bumping into clouds
Drinking black, black coffee
Stirring up trouble
Stickier than toffee

Bumping into clouds
Track Name: Crush Hour
Stuck in a jam, don’t know where to turn
Head out to the highway, there’s rubber to burn
Shifting gears, but I can’t move on
Radio’s stuck on the same old song

Crush Hour x 4

This old truck is battered and worn
I was lost in love but now I’m reborn
Back on track I’ve found the plot
Stake my claim in your parking lot

Where love’s concerned I’ve got a lot to learn
Your Car Crash Man is waiting his turn

Crush Hour x 4

Driving’s neat, your kisses are sweet
Got me maniac driving down a wrong way street
I look into the mirror and I can’t quite see
If it’s rain on the pane or your tears on me

My brain is numb from pushing these wheels
My heartbeat pumps as the Dunlop squeals
But my lonely bunk in the back of the truck
Is an empty nest cos I’m all out of luck

Where love’s concerned I’ve got a lot to learn
Your Car Crash Man is waiting his turn

Crush Hour x 4

Stuck in a jam, don’t know where to turn
Head out to the highway, there’s rubber to burn
Shifting gears, but I can’t move on
Radio’s stuck on the same old song
Where love’s concerned I’ve got a lot to learn
Your Car Crash Man is waiting his turn

Crush Hour
Track Name: Breathless
Breathless
With every beat of my heart
Every moment apart
You leave me breathless
Breathless,
Breathless

Remember my kiss
Long after I’m gone
And though silence is bliss
Remember my song
And when darkness descends
And stars pierce the night
I’ll always be there
In the shadows and light

Remember our dreams
The worlds that we drew
The sum of our lives
The me, and the you
Remember the sights
Remember the sounds
Remember the lost
Remember the found

Remember the still
Remember the noise
Tumbling words
Scattering toys
Remember the fool
Remember the boy
Remember the tears
Remember the joy

Remember it all
When we run out of time
Walking the walk
Climbing the climb
And should memory fade
Like black holes in the sky
I’ll always be there
At the back of your mind

You leave me breathless
Breathless
With every beat of my heart
Every moment apart
You leave me breathless
Breathless,
Breathless
Breathless
Track Name: Hold On
I was greener back in those early days
But you set my soul on fire
Your touch ravaged my existence
With so much more than your desire

I cannot think about a future
Where you and I divide
I'll keep you close, close to my heart
Close by my side

So hold on to me
Don't ever let me go

The passion that burns in the core of me
Melts the ice in your stony heart
And sometimes, I get to thinking
That the only way to live with you is to tear this love apart

I warned you from the outset of this wild and crazy show
That our time will run like rivers
Unless we stop the flow

So hold on to me
Don't ever let me go
So hold on to me
Don't you ever let me go

So hold on to me
Don't ever let me go

I gaze out at the fragile balance our world
The yin and the yang
There can be no day without the darkest night
It’s all part of nature's plan

And even now, as I run my fingers through your burning sands
And watch it trickle through my calloused hands
Now those fire rage through the rain kissed leaves in the forests of the light
That last kiss might be the final touch
Unless we change the wrongs to right

So hold on to me...
Track Name: Absolution
Well, it’s Good Time Girls in the dead of night looking for mass destruction
Sailor boys on a weekend haul, looking for instruction
Downhome kids with Backstreet minds covered in confusion
For a dollar a crime they’ll wait in line looking for absolution

See the girl with blue sky eyes she's starting up a revolution
She bruised my soul with storm-cloud lies and a jack-knife contribution
I’m hospitalised with heartbreak sighs and a thirty day contusion
Let me in you Preacher Man - I need some absolution

So wake me, Shake me, shake that girl with the red dress on
Here come’s Johnny down the stony road, looking for absolution

It’s a wake me, shake me, we all need absolution
Wake me, shake me, absolution
Wake me, shake me, I’m looking for absolution
Wake me, shake me, absolution

So wake me, Shake me, shake that girl with the red dress on
Here come’s Johnny down the stony road, looking for absolution
So wake me, Shake me, shake that girl with the red dress on
Here come’s Johnny down the stony road, looking for absolution

Absolution
Absolution
Let me us in you Preacher Man - we ALL need absolution
Track Name: One to One
Let’s have a one to one
Let’s talk this out
Let’s have a one to one
Let’s scream and shout
Let’s have a one to one
Negotiate
Get on the right side baby
Don’t hesitate
Well have a tete a tete tonight

Let’s draw the party lines
It’s time to talk
Let’s have some summit time
It’s time to squawk
This ain’t no game of chess
It’s more like snap
There’s even even odds that
Someone will crack
So you bring the whip
And I’ll watch your back

So let’s have a one to one
Let’s Camelot
Let’s square the circle (babe)
Rewrite the plot
Let’s have an Agincourt
Draw up some plans
But let’s not fight tonight
Let’s just shake hands x2

Pull down the sheets
Roll down the blinds
Pull up the covers babe
What’s on your mind
Let’s turn the lights down low
It’s you and me

For all the times you stirred my heart
With unconditional love
I owe you
For all the crimes of loyalty
When push comes to shove
I owe you

It’s you I owe
I didn’t need to bribe you to get you on my side
No nasty little secrets
I might let slip and slide
How can I repay you?
The doors are open wide/ecocide
There’s no way you are getting off this ride…
Track Name: Lost In Space
Take aim and fire
We’re through
A little light reflected by the moon
Until the tide goes out, yeah
Forever and ever, yeah
I know we know there’s so much more to lose, hmm
Than the pretty shine upon our shoes
I know we know there’s so much more to lose, hmm
Than the pretty shine upon our shoes

There’s no time to pray now
Where to find a way now
Say goodbye, oh no
It’s too soon for us to go
The last chance
It’s too soon for us to go
The final show
So much I need to know
So much more I need to know
Lost In Space like a speck of dust
Black holes and cumulus

Chorus:
Lost In Space like a speck of dust
Black holes and cumulus
Such a difficult choice for you
Is this really what you want to do?

Take aim and fire
We’re through
A little light reflected by the moon
And when the light expires, yeah
And the aura fades, yeah
And when the light expires, yeah
And the aura fades, yeah

We’ll all be
Lost In Space like a speck of dust
Black holes and cumulus
Such a difficult choice for you
Is it really what you want to do?
Track Name: Destruction
Prologue: As the clock ticks, slowly counting down inevitable moments,
convergent souls crash toward their destinies in the silent drowning city,
lives will change forever as the sun rises on this bright new day of destruction…

Mist in the streets, middle of the road
Broken Ovation lightens the load
Hitch hike, motor bike
Seeds I sowed
Drowning in salt
The debt I owed
Trails of destruction
Middle of the road x2
Destruction
Trails of destruction
Middle of the road x2
Destruction

Red lights showing, must’ve been blind
Slow motion mayhem rolling behind
Hitch hike
Motor bike
Rows I hoed
Down in the flood
A deadly code
Trails of destruction
Middle of the road x2
Destruction
Trails of destruction
Middle of the road x2
Destruction

Solo:

Crashing at The Crucifix
Brief encounter
Dummy and the Big Girl talking about her
Hitch hike
Motor bike
Roads I rode
Drowning in caffiene
Breaking the code
Stitching the shroud
Leaving a trail of destruction x 3
Destruction
Track Name: One Voice
One voice wiill make us stronger
One choice theres a better way
One voice wiill make us stronger
One choice a better way

Jaw Jaw better than war war
Jaw Jaw
No War War

You pays your money and you takes your choice
Change the rules - kill the voice
People power will win this time
There’s light at the end of the party line

You pays your money and you choose your toys
Up the ante - quench the noise
People power will seal the crime
There’s time at the end of the party line

Trumpet Majors, currying favours,
Placing bets with a billion dollar wager
Finger on the button red for danger
Who the hell is gonna be our saviour?
Track Name: One More Summer Of Love
Northern stars tattooed on my fingers
In the summer of 69
On a Berlin train with the echo of the Ghetto
Pounding in the raging Rhine

It was all much closer than I ever dreamed of
Yet further than I dared to think
Twenty Five Years from there to here
In the land of Grey and Pink…

Now it's a grey old day in 88
There are bombs on the Greyhounds and the Chevrolets
Down along the Devil's Way
As we ride the rails to God knows where

One more Summer of Love
One more Summer Of Love
Fear and pheromones ruled the air,
One more Summer of Love

I had a brother when i was young
He was a mystery to me
We never got along and now he’s gone
That was all he ever gave to me
I don’t miss him all that much.
We only shared an hour or two
It’s hard to miss what you never had
When you’re coal house black and blue

One more Summer of Love
Give me one more Summer of Love

There was another brother lost to me
The one I have yet to meet
He came between the boy and the man I am
One minute old and he beat a retreat
I’ve only just begun wondering how and when

One more Summer of Love
One more Summer Of Love
Tears and amphetamines ruled the head,
Give me one more Summer of Love

Would we have ever got along
There in the summer sun
Would he have turned my destiny?
Who would have won?

Then the willow arrows cut me down
Cut me like a field of corn
The cars roared into the silent town
Leaving me re-born
Cowboys and Indians

One more Summer of Love
One more Summer Of Love
Storms and hurricanes fanned the flames
Give me one more Summer of Love

One more Summer of Love
One more Summer Of Love
Childhood memories fuelled the fire,
One more Summer Of Love

One more Summer of Love
One more Summer Of Love
Fear and terror reigning down,
It’s just one more Summer of Love...
Track Name: Hungry Tonight
Give me the key
Give me the bunch
The carnivores are ravenous
Plotting their lunch
The bones and the gristle
Add to the crunch
The animals are hungry tonight

Key in the slot
Tumblers are falling
The Dik Diks are scared
The hyenas are calling
There are bells and whistles
As the dead come crawling
The animals are hungry tonight

I don’t need excuses to crack another bottle
They’re lined up in the rack in a sequence of strength
I’m celebrating corpses on Popocatépetl
Just about as high as I’m ever going to get

Knock on my door any time at all
The keys are on the table in the corner of the hall
I’ve passed out in the kitchen
So just take it all
The animals are hungry tonight

So, Open the cages
Open the gates
Open your eyes,
Start spinning those plates
You want some more?
You’ll have to wait
The animals are hungry tonight
Caught in the crossfire
Mown down in blood
The prisoners are restless
Trapped in the flood
There’s fingers round my ankles deep in the mud
The animals are hungry tonight
Track Name: Mean Girl
I woke up in a bad place
In another man’s shoes
Just leave me to simmer here
I can handle the blues
You could have just abandoned me
Staring at the stars
But you had to settle ancient scores
And leave those battle scars
Mean girl x 7

Scaling Ivory towers
For songs you’ll never sing
The devil's in the decaff
As the pas de deux begins
A funeral march of memories
Five fiery rings
Mean girl, yeah

Keening through the water
Someone queered my deal
Tomorrows never show their hand
They conceal the reveal
You spun me on a dime
You led me down a rut
You tangled me in knots
There were ties to cut
Mean girl x 7

You could always make me turn my head
But there were lies in every word you said
Having Fun…
You could have just left me
Staring at the stars
But you had to settle scores with me
And leave those battle scars
Mean Girl
You could always make me turn my head
But there were lies in every word you said
Having Fun? Having fun…
Erasing every little thing we’ve done since the day we first met
Lowering the stakes with every last bet
Mean girl

It’s always ‘me, me, me, me’
Always you you you
Always one one one
Never two two two x 2

Mean girl
You’re such a mean girl
Do you know what I mean girl
Hey Hey

Nananana
Nananana
Nananana
Nananana x3
Mean girl
Track Name: Shine
There were cats on the crossbar and lights in the night
There was music in the mist as we took to flight
There were cops in the shrubbery taking our names
There were stars in our eyes and the world was in flames

Shine

There were locks on the door and frost on the lawn
And we watched as the moonlight died in the dawn
The herons flew, the camomile brewed
The doves in the rafters billed and cooed

Shine

There were stars on the steps with anonymous names
There were pornographic knights who played their games
There were painters and poets and indelible dreams
There were swastikas carved in the castle beams
There were flags in the hallway covered in toads
Chickens in the basement, chickens on the road
You and me on overload
And Jakob preened and Jakob crowed

Shine

I don’t care if it’s wet or fine
As long as you’re mine, all I wanna do is shine

There was Escher at the baker, Anton in the Baarn
Queenie in a headscarf to keep her from harm
There was Pushkin and Pulin and Vietnam tears
There was M-biotic mayhem and TB fears
There were picnics in the poppies, Emperors in the grass
Bubbles on the doorstep, futures in the past
Smokes in the Oaks and swings in the Ash
Cous-cous in the Kosmos – life was a gas!

Shine
Track Name: Deja Voodoo
Needles and pins
Needles…

I hear a pin drop in the dead of our night
You can crawl out of bed but don’t turn on the light
So why don't you crawl out of bed - it’s close to midnight
And I'm playing with the dolls tonight

I’ve been here before
There’s nothing that’s new
i’ve been here before
You’re just one of the few
Now it’s all down to me
Cause I’m so over you
Needles and pins
Deja Voodoo

Needles and pins

Ten silent steps
As you head for oblivion
Count in reverse
As you glide cross the floor
Ticking of clocks
Antemeridian
Whisper the curse
As you beg me for more

I’ve been here before
There’s nothing that’s new
i’ve been here before
You’re just one of the few
Now it’s all down to me
Cause I’m so over you
Needles and pins
Deja Voodoo

I’ve been here before
There’s nothing that’s new
i’ve been here before
You’re just one of the few
Now it’s all down to me
Cause I’m so over you
Needles and pins
Deja Voodoo
Track Name: Wheel Of Fortune
There’s light at the end of the tunnel
Sure looks like the dawn of a bright new day
But it sounds like a freight train out of control 
On a one-way track, and it’s heading this way
Riding The Wheels Of Fortune

Windows are dark around town tonight
As the bartender trickles the gold
There’s a spring in my step as I stumble and fall
And the gutter receives my soul
Under The Wheels Of Fortune

Catching your breath
Take one little moment
All you have left is time
Get your head clear
Of the Reasons and Rhymes

The windows are dark
As starless as midnight
Colder than ice
Colder than clay.
They’re closing the bar,
They’re closing the town
Lovers in limbo reaching for anyone
Pushing the edges of breaking day.

Going round and round and round and round and round and round and round
On the Wheels Of Fortune

There’s a light at the end of the tunnel
And great is the joy in my heart
There's an arrow of birds in the moonlight
Splitting the seasons apart
As they fly from The Wheels Of Fortune

There’s a light at the end of the tunnel
Sure looks like the dawn of a bright new day
But it rolls like a freight train out of control 
On a one-way track, and it’s heading our way
Riding The Wheels Of Fortune
Riding The Wheels Of Fortune
Riding The Wheels Of Fortune

Going round and round and round and round and round and round and round
