Track Name: Stay Out of London
Stay out of London, London is cruel
she will engulf you like a fog.
Be with your parents, parents are cool.
Read the papers, walk the dog.

Much to be said for everyday life.
These days everybody wants
to be a celebrity in strife.
Just because, just because...

...you see their pictures everywhere,
it don't amount to nothing.
They won't airbrush all your cares
away my darling.

Take this moment to remember
all the love in this room.

The phantom menace menaced you good.
Now you're a walking parakeet,
repeating the buzz words you love best.
Words that make the world sound sweet.

Evil intentions ruling your mind,
you coud be famous for fuck all.
Leaving the real world behind.
Leaving the countryside and all...

...the uneccessary noise
making you feel dizzy.
Me and the boys are back in town
listening to Thin Lizzy.

Take this time to remember
all the love in this room.

Bringing it all back home.
Track Name: So Sweet and Blue
So many years that you've been broken
In your eyes the pain's unspoken
sweet and blue like you've awoken
to a world brand new.

To see you in the summer sunshine
all old friends together again
never in my dreams have I been
happier than here.

Now i've no clue to what you've been through
I'll admit I barely knew you
when i see your eyes so sweet and blue
I know it's true.

I'll dream about this day for years now
all that's mundane disappears now
I won't complain or shed no tears
for all those little things.

For even if I hardly see you
Fears and years they will not change you
or your eyes so sweet and blue
so sweet and blue.

So sweet and blue.
Track Name: Now That You're Gone
Grey machines they make me tired.
Gotta be strong now that you're gone.
Sell by dates have long expired.
Gotta be strong now that you're gone.

We were happy back then.
Make her happy again.
Gotta be strong now that you're gone.

Breakfast time I miss your make-up.
Gotta be strong now that you're gone.
Christmas time's no time to break-up.
Gotta be strong now that you're gone.

We were happy back then.
Make her happy again.
Gotta be strong now that you're gone.

Gotta be strong now that you're gone.
Track Name: Neutral Place
If the crowd is wrong I still have to be true.
This is my disease I wouldn't wish it on you.
Only be true to you.
That is all you can do.

Silent nights, uncomfortable days
keep me bang to rights and stuck in your ways.
I'm thinking it's leaving time.
I'm leaving this place of mine behind.

It's all so beige, so bland and obscure.
Now i'm deranged and there isn't a cure.
I'm all for saving face.
But what a fucking waste of time.
Track Name: Frank's Incensed
So true
everything's moving to fast.
It's long gone before it has past
and your door is a jar.
Everyone's leaving
and nobody's sure where they are.

Don't fret.
We will be here til the end.
And when you're not sure
don't forget that I am your best friend
and everyone loves you.
You know you can always depend

on that to see you through.
Don't keep it all inside.

By now
we're older than we can explain.
And everything's going insane
and your brain is in shreds.
And try as I may I don't think I can say
what you needed to hear from a friend.

Just realize this isn't the end.
Track Name: Brighten my Life
Someone's coming over
that means a lot to me.
I don't know what to do
we'll have to wait and see
just what we see.

Reason's coming closer.
It's been a long, long time
since i've known what to do.
I'm always last in line.
I don't know why.

Brighten my life.
Make it right.
Show me what I have left inside.

There's no-one here to get me
so I just get myself.
And people just help themselves
and I got no-one else
since I got you.

But the reason's getting closer.
I think I found a way
to love you all my days.
It's all I seem to say since I let you...

Brighten my life,
make it right.
Show me what I have left inside.
Track Name: The Man's a Freak
Because the man's a freak
there's no pity.
His mind was always weak,
never pretty.

His kind are rarely true.
Never meant to find a girl like you.

Because the man's a freak
he's not healthy.
Eats only twice a week
to stay wealthy.

His lips are turning blue.
Never meant to kiss a girl like you.

Beacause the man's a freak
he's my brother.
We only ever speak
with each other.

We weep together too
Never gonna keep a girl like you.
Track Name: Hayfever Horror
Don't blame me if I hate your music,
I don't hate your sorry soul.
Easy listening, easy does it.
Easy living's all I know.

I'm razzled, dazzled,
seasick as a dove.
My love watches from above.

Don't raise your expectations too high
I will only let you down.
The effort's often too much too soon.
I won't always be around.

I'm careless, hairless,
yellow to the bone.
My love won't leave me alone.

This hayfever is killing me now.
It's the main thing on my mind.
Nothing much to worry about,
maybe just the passing time.

I'm sneezing, wheezing,
yellow and alone.
My love's never coming home.

Never coming home.
Track Name: Purest Essence
Put on my self-evasing smile
and watch the sun come down in style
and then i'll ruin it for you.

When Sunday loving
leaves a trail of disaster
in it's wake.

You know it's time to reassess
all important facts of life.
When we see you at your best
this is your purest essence.

These Sunday morning shadows
messing with my eyes they make me doubt
that all I see today is true.

My mind is missing now
i'm kissing only memories
of you.

You know it's time to reassess
all important facts of life.
When I get them off my chest
i'll be my purest essence yet.

You know it's time to reassess
all important facts of life.
When I get them off my chest
i'll be my purest essence

I think it's time to reassess
all important facts of life.
There's this one thing yu don't mess with
that's your purest essene.
Track Name: Until She Cries Again
We could always tell where she was
even though she never found
another way to hide those lies.

I always thought that she was mine
even though she left behind
all the others that just hadn't tried.

I always said,
This could make it harder to be friends
until she cries again.

Now we don't know where she will go
she just wants to be alone
and I don't want to try today.

Leave her to think about her crimes
and all the other times
when no one seemed inclined that way.

I used to say,
This could make it harder to be friends
until she cries again.

She now remembers the days
when she never used to try
and I would always interfere.

Somehow we knew that she could smile
but we waited for a while
before we let her smile in here.

Now she always sais,
This could make it harder to be friends
until she cries again.
Track Name: The Exploding Boy
No'one ever notices me.
I'm not the kind of person anyone sees.
I sit in shadows in the morning sun.
I don't like any thing or anyone.

I let you feel good about yourself.
I know this malady's no good for my health.
I wish there was another one like me.
Then we'd be happy in this misery

without you all saying it's just a phase
everyone goes through.
It should pass someday.
I hope that's true.

My only friend's are going away.
They let me come around the other day.
They told me that I wasn't looking so great
and then nobody had nothing to say.

So I left early and I went for a stroll
down by the railway and the Hollywood Bowl.
The sky was orange and the wind it did blow
and I felt guilty of the things I know but never show.

Every night I go
into a deep, deep sleep.
And I dream I know
everyone I meet.

Every morning I reload
Every evening I explode.
Track Name: You Never Know
If this wasn't love I don't know what love is.
If this wasn't real then I don't know what is.
It's crazy all the small things you miss.
Ranting and raving and craving the warmth of your kiss.

If it wasn't me then it had to be you.
You just couldn't see things the way that I do.
It's crazy but I guess it's true.
You never know someone as well as you think that you do.
Track Name: Through the Trees
Through the trees is the sun
and every wink makes me think of you.
When you were here and we were
young enough to make it seem true.

In a field full of flowers
where we made love in-between the showers.
And now I wonder do you still remember
do you still smile for hours and hours?

As I move through the light
every ray makes me bright and new.
It all takes me back to some way that I used to feel.

When we walked through the dawn
if only to prolong the night.
But now I wonder do you still remember
Do you still smile?
Do you sleep alright?

Celebrating your love
isn't always enough anymore.
I need to see your smile
to love you like I used to do before.
Track Name: Weird Clearing
Barely had this morning gone
when she was done up on her way.
No long goodbyes or fare-thee-wells,
her smiling eyes would never tell
me where her smile would stray.

I saw her leave I watched her go
I even followed through the snow.
But soon her footprints disappeared
into a clearing really weird
I knew not where to go.

The winter sun was failing fast
I knew that I may never last.
I fell asleep inside a tree
and dreamed that she had come for me
until that night had passed.

As I awoke into the light
the snow had melted over-night.
Track Name: Chasing the Motherload
Perhaps i'll work to win a promotion in a laboratory.
I will invent a new kind of lotion, killing all allergy.
I'll buy a car and a new horizon; something to aim it at.
I'll be the man someone relies on, can you imagine that?

Perhaps you and me will try
to be free for a day without complication.
And then you and I will die.
And the car gathered rust in the rain.

Perhaps i'll follow you through the forest holding on to yur hand.
I can not care and to be honest I can not understand.
Why we are leaving our life behind us only to go and hide.
I kind of know no one will find us over the other side.

Perhaps it will not be long
before we walk away in the wrong direction.
I won't know where we went wrong.
But i'll know what we had, had gone.

We should be chasing the motherload.
We shouldn't be let down.

Perhaps I will never grow old and lose my virginity.
I'll never forget all that i'm told or the thrill of discovery.
And all my dreams they will be out there waiting ahead of me.
I'll never know fear, loss or despair.

This negativity that is reality quietly killing me.

We should be chasing the motherload.
We shouldn't be let down.
Track Name: Got No Money
Got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money Got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money Got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money Got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money Got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money Got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money Got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money Got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money Got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money Got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money Got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money Got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money Got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money Got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money Got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money now I got no money, etc.
