Please Somebody (free) 04:10
Please Somebody Sleeping I’ve crashed out Think I’ve had too much to drink Think so I don’t know Can’t remember you know As all I can see is the table I’m below Lying horizontal four eyes in my head Headache a’ throbbing how I wish I was dead Please please somebody tell me my name Looking at people They look so strange from down here 3 heads and 4 legs and 20 bottles of beer Look at them all standing on my dirty old hat When’s morning a’ coming It’s far away I hope Need to rest a little longer Feel like siesting pope But I tell you there is slow resurrection for thee For thee For me Music loud music Etching at my brain Laughter so much laughter Again and again Please please somebody tell me my name
Sensible Shoes When I go to the gates of hell Gonna ring that old black bell and tell Lucifer all is well up here in Heaven Tell him he can join our team We could use someone like him This time he is not allowed to scream This time he’ll behave Take all your polished colours for Your sensible shoes Like the story of the philosopher Who was wondering over a glass of water? He wondered if it was really there Or maybe it was not Some say they think he died of natural causes Some say they think he died simply of thirst Gonna sleep for a good few months After all of these spiritual stunts Forgive me if I seem blunt but here are some facts Throw away securities and all of those skeleton keys And trying to please people not so real
Fingers And Face (free) 04:23
Fingers And Face What can I say to make this world okay? What can I play to make a clearer day? Sleep content with all love intent Remember we once were warriors Feel it in feel it in Feel it in the feet first Concentrate concentrate Fingers and face Fingers and face This is the deeper dream for certain now Night is really light busy being born Tattered old canvas is dripping down Remember we once were warriors Feel it in feel it in Feel it in the feet first Concentrate concentrate Fingers and face x3 Wonder becomes one Word personifies now This is the end of wait Waiting dances and kiss chances Time feels this Time Fingers and face x4
Fairy Dance 03:39
Chosen 04:22
Chosen Seen you in a bus station We looked into each others eye’s didn’t say anything Though we realised we both know the way it is The way it is Chosen we are all ready saved We are Chosen we are already saved We are chosen we are all ready saved We are chosen we are already saved By how she prays By how she praises phrases Her thought I implore the ignorant To contradict all the old schools I choose to ignore the institutions For the way it is So when it comes to pass and we are divided I am looking out to see where fear might hide I can tell you now I am decided Count me in lord
Cushingtown 02:35
Cushingtown Going downtown foolin’ around Pacing down the street to see who I might meet There’s a girl I know but she turns away Met her at a party but I forget her name. Her name? Don’t you get it too? I don’t know Walk into a bar and I pull up a stool The barman is wearing shades and he’s looking cool I ask him for a drink but he say’s you’re not getting served I asked him what the problem is he Say’s it’s my hair, my hair the problem is my hair I don’t know Into tower records checkin out some discs Had a difficult conversation with a girl eating crisps She’s all right though that I can tell But the stink of pickled onion Well I just can’t stand that smell that smell Don’t you get it too? I don’t know
Jesus Sweat 04:30
Jesus Sweat Hey girl now you are wearing the right dress for me But like a pinned flower on a curtain You match them up and no they don’t fit Patience papers the walls of my station All I have for company is Jesus sweat on my body Why do you haunt me now? I thought I dealt with you somehow Lady Grey is here again Tempting me with her friendship Hey girl now don’t take offence Proud I rest on this holy fence Contain to remain true Sending these vows I carry on now Truth hurts when it falls It drops down and breaks to pieces I love it altogether until all The pain ceases Toss and turn in my head I’m home again alone I said Why lust for 5 minutes when you can Love for 5 months or 5 years or 5 eternities Magical mystical universal Wonderful beautiful True love finding its other half Its other face other vehicle
Kissing Stars (free) 04:22
Kissing Stars Reaching out turn over a stone Haven’t passed anyone on this road Look for a sign to follow me on Seen no soldiers now with ammunition Join me kissing stars Join me I am kissing stars I am Then a fleet of fresh air washes my veins And a company of thoughts remains Pockets of promised seeds in their places Reveal the secrets of our ancient races Then I bargain for tomorrow When all of these tissues once hollow Shall clear away histories scars I can see us all kissing stars
