1. ROCKIN' ROCKS

Who'd you say is you?

Where'd you say you hide your proof?

You're swollen like a lexicon

If you hurry we'll be home real soon

 

If you meet me in the morning, gonna make my day

The sky will fall and the planets swoon,

Feel like tomorrow coming up too soon

 

Gonna bend and shake it loose

Use whatever gets you through

You're swollen like a lexicon

If you hurry we'll be home real soon

 

Happy memories I remember

Home spun remedies for stormy weather

Juggling scissors in the afternoon

Picking up signs from across the room

 

If you live your life like a castaway in the hold neatly tucked away

2. (BABY I'VE GOT YOU) ON MY MIND

HAUG

MIDDLETON

Baby I've got you on my mind, honey you won't ever know

How much I need you by my side, promise you won't ever go

I won't take no from you this time

Baby I've got you on my mind

 

'Cause honey I've got to show (I won't wait for another day)

Just what I can do (My heart died when you loosed the chains)

Because I think I know (I won't wait for another day)

What you are going through (My heart died when you loosed the chains)

I hope you feel it the way I feel it, I hope you feel it the way I feel it too.

 

So if I had this all my way, honey you won't ever know

I'd be there through every night and day, promise you won't ever go

I won't hold back from you this time

Baby I've got you on my mind

There's a truth begging to be told as the blues grab and take a hold

To continue like this only acts as a force for no good

 

I just want to say that I miss you and I've felt pitiful since you've been gone

I'm just trying to say I need something I can lean against

So I'm gonna steady myself on a reliable friend

 

There's a weight dragging through my days that I spend trying to fill the space

That's been there since the day that we parted and made our goodbyes

There's a truth begging to be told as the blues grab and take a hold

And I just can't believe when I wake up that you could be gone

3. SINCE YOU'VE BEEN GONE

I got to keep moving to stay warm 'cause I'm freezing in this room

And if I prove no good here I'll skip to where I should

It's only an imaginary vigil that we keep

You salvage what you need I'll take the love you leave

 

I love your way

I can't explain

What made me change

 

I'm wading in deeper ever deeper as I go

I drown the whole idea as I drift away from you

It's only and imaginary vigil that we keep

You salvage what you need I'll take the love you leave

 

And as the memory gathers dust, buried in its crust

Are the remains of what we've done and the seeds of what we just begun

The tapping of the rain beats a corrugated drum

And the city glow well it pulses on to the city hum

Until the day is done

4. LOVE YOUR WAY

Sunsets over the beaches from now on

Each day looking for new ways to go on

 

Maybe I should drop by maybe I should have called

Maybe I should have followed you and beat down your door

Maybe it's gonna be breaking you every time you fall

But to shower you with pity will do you no good at all

 

Slow burn watching the world turn from my arms

New way of measuring each day until it's gone

 

Sunrise building a reprise in my heart

Regret tight around my chest plays its part

 

Watching the sunset over the beaches

5. SUNSETS

If I invite danger

It might just do some good for me

Slack jawed little stranger

Slip and shuffle on your feet

If I set a trap

I'll raise suspicion and keep eyes on me

I'll just keep kicking at the cracks

'Til it all falls in on me

 

Big fat payback bleeding like a smokestack

I'm running

We got a dud pump speed bump burning like a fuel dump

I'm coming

Don't panic

 

So come and join my collective

Every man and woman for themselves

I never felt so well protected

Just hanging up here on the shelf

There's no way I'm turning back

I'm tired of sailing on the same old seas

I'll just keep kicking at the cracks

'Til it all falls in on me

Take a run for the money

Give you something to show

Now we're almost ready and away I go

So go cat go

7. STUMBLIN'

COLLINS

I got to feeling low for making light of whatever you said

The pain went straight to my head chopping me up turning me to morose

You've got a thing or two coming soon so I'll get out of your way

Beat blue, blackened and bruised chopping it up at the end of the day

 

You better step back and see the mess that you left

Won't you tell it to somebody who cares

I'm stumblin' all the way 'cause its not such a beautiful day

 

You stopped to see the show but don't believe everything that you read

The pain's still there in my head pulling me close now that I'm here alone

Don't stop because of me you'll never know just how long you'd have stayed

So sleep through the slackening screws cutting me loose at the end of the day

 

It's not such a beautiful day

But I'll stumble through all the same

The bright lights are fading away

It's not such a beautiful day

Your gentle pace it provides a rhythm for the unwashed few of us

Lock and loaded past is a prison for the crimes of the universe

Do you have the information to decide whether you really care

C'mon you know that it's hard to complain about the way you live

 

So please don't let it roll right by you

Just think if the same thing happened to you

Would you be happy to walk in my shoes

 

I'm already tired of your chronic compassion fatigue

The final turd in the dungheap of every post modern disease

Are you in the situation to decide whater you really care

It's hard to believe you'd look me in the eye and turn away again

8. ROLL RIGHT BY YOU

Despite the miseries

And the lessons learned from history

The pattern still repeats

Never to surrender don't you ever repeat

 

How far have we really come?

Until the ones who are leading us

Make peace their resolution tonight

Make peace your resolution tonight

 

There's an arms race to be run

Building bigger better dagger headed bombs

So let's drink to the daughters and sons

Never to return to their mother's arms

 

For every battle lost and won are these the ones that we offer up?

9. HOW FAR HAVE WE REALLY COME?

FANNING

10. POCKETS

By now you know that I never arrived

I was too tired to move

I was gonna invent an elaborate excuse

But I'm tired of them too

 

Little pockets of air in the atmosphere

Make it easy to breathe

So farewell to unpleasant scenes

I want you to stay, stay, stay

 

The blinding flash of circling stars

Left relatively shallow scars

You played your faux renaissance card

To starry eyes and wild applause

 

It's not your destination

So something, something better happen

COGHILL

11. A SONG CALLED EVERYTHING

How many more times will you say that you love me

How many more times will you wake up beside me

You think that you told me what I'd like to hear

But I think you should tell me how you really feel

 

I'll be your pawn, I'll be your king

I'll bear your scorn, I'll wear your ring

Our feet won't hardly touch the ground

We'll float away without a sound

You want to reach out and touch my hands

You promise you'll do everything, everything, everything you can

 

Now how does it feel that I strung you along

You're bound to try to conceal that maybe you had it wrong

There's too many true feelings you've had to contain

When you wake up tomorrow will you still feel the same

Based on the Chinese tale of warrior Yi and the Ten Suns, this 2D flash piece becomes a backing for the Brisbane-based band, Powderfinger’s, song, ‘Sunsets’. Liquid Animation created the complete animation after being briefed on the Ten Suns concept. We designed the characters and sets, planned the story, completed storyboards and an animatic before animating the full clip in 2D flash.

 

‘Sunsets’ reached number 11 on the Australian ARIA charts in 2004.
