skinny jean

you got knee high boots to hide focaccia fruit • you better think twice about the soy milk drink babe • you got a patent handbag and solid state rags • you wont think twice about the bill will you baby • should i be the one to say that you don't need it • skinny jean crushed a kenyan roast bean • raoul devours another organic buffet • they're so preservative free to keep their smokescreen • should i be the one to say that you don't need that • style guide never would proclaim that you don't need it • they say you like it sundried tell me is that right • they say you like it sundried tell me is that right • skinny jean loves brazilian roast beans • raoul wood fires a tandoori pizza today • special filter gonna keep them both out of harms way • should I be the one to say that you don't need that • too tired to survive the day a brew might fix it • skinny Jean we'll all die sometime • they say you like it sundried tell me am I right again

turtle's head

if I had no friends I'd have no one to ridicule • so goes the tale of the resident fool • if i clear my space I could clear it to be with you • backhanded claims of a resolute • if i call an end to the trouble I'm sinking in • maybe a sign for a crime or sin • i'll love my girl when she comes home • i'll love my boys when they get home • with friends like that who needs enemies • if i make no sense I'll be nearer to fitting in • spreading the wisdom by accident • if i call you out that'll bring it all to an end • token resolve of a dissident • when you pull me in that'll settle the residue • maybe a sign for a crime or a sin • i'll love my girl when she comes home • i'll love my boys when they get home • with friends like that who needs enemies

pick you up

when you are set to throw in your hand • when you are far from home • when what you believe is buried in your hands • when you feel outgrown • i'll be the one to pick you up again • when you decide you've had enough of it • i'll be the one • i'll be the one • when your speech is slow • when your eyes are closed • when you feel betrayed • when your heart is frayed • when your feet are cold • when your sights are low • i'll be the one to pick you up again • when you decide you've had enough of it • i'll be the one • i'll be the one

d.a.f

holding out for a signal to come • solution found should appease everyone • religion hides from developing proof • believers try to encourage the truth  • cascading down golden rays above • cascading down life from far beyond • may reveal the silence they deny • sound and sight end suspicion and fear • distant light took so long to appear • fey black eyes mystified everyone • cascading down golden rays above • cascading down life from far beyond • may reveal the silence they deny • but they keep filling up, keep filling up my eyes • but they keep filling up, keep filling up my eyes

boing boing

there's nothing to say but she came and then she went through • her cardamom powder sneeze raised the old hotel roof • there's nothing to play so we swam into the rockpool • habits are breaking me so we broke thru to the other side • original cyber freak waved in through the sun roof • double allergic wheeze spoiled the phantom flow through • neighbourhood of disease paved the way to fondue • habits are breaking me so we broke through to the other side • we broke through to the other side • we broke through to the other side • it was meant to be

give

i keep looking back for clues • they're all mine • i keep pulling back from truths  • they're all mine to give • all mine to give • all mine to give • all mine to give • lies to relieve and soothe • they're all mine • i would brake the holy rules for you  • they're all mine to give • you've got your brakes on • i should run a mile from you  • you're all mine to give

oipic

far may you run from what you know • sermons homespun before the show • one superjudge that brings a change in taste • the new seasons king with a brand new face • the old seasons bloom seemed to run its race • and we standby for your word  • truth and intent will lose the day • music's revenge to pave the way • play favourites with a view to changing taste • the new seasons king with a brand new face • the old seasons bloom seemed to run its race • and we standby for your word

living type

and you'll be there to break my fall • to reassure my doubts and faults • and all your fables will ring true • they are the lies you lean on too • there's love on your breath • i'd better not say • about the blood on your hands • you hold the future in your hands • and sullen eyes soothe and command • a graceful mouth your deadly tool • too bad the truth has fallen through • there's love on your breath • i'd better not say • about the blood on your hands • the incarnation of a christ • manipulation • there's love on your breath • i'd better not say • about the blood on your hands • the cross on your head • what does that say • about the blood on your hands

jc

jesus christ, what name do you go by now • for time is passing with the wind blows new decrees • canned for life your used by date is faded • and followers of you now watch TV • what could I do • and tonight your dress is looking shaded • the colours don't seem to captivate • count the loss I see your moving on now • pressures off no more people to drag you down • what could I do • on my own I stand naked • jesus christ, don't look at me that way

glimpse

tell me when does your justice start • what you say and what I see they are miles apart • now I'm as guilty as any man or woman I declare • of apathy and selfish greed and self interested affairs • now why must we accept these things when after all • they're only handed down • tell me when does your mercy begin • what you say and what I see • looks like its come to an end

take me in

sea uprising takes me in • the crimes I'm fighting break my skin • sea uprising takes me in • i don't know • i don't know • you might have to take me in • you might have to break me in • these rules and systems are losing ground • what I believe in is breaking down • this blind direction is lost and found • i don't know • how far to go • you might have to take me in • you might have to break me in

(return of) the electric horseman

in my head inside my dreams • under my hand as no one's seen • bent to the will of the others • strange kind of day to discover • that all seasons fail and recover • don't tie the hands of your brother • all seasons fail and recover • home ground relief from a name • feather to breathe and remain • in your climb to be unique • why don't you see you have all turned out the same  • now all seasons fail and recover • don't tie the hands of your brother • how do I decide where to go If I don't know who to bring • share secrets with the wine and the wind • all seasons fail and recover • don't tie the hands • all seasons fail and recover • don't tie the hands • don't tie their hands • don't tie their hands • in your climb to be unique • why don't you see you have all turned out the same
