Track Name: Calamity Jane
Comfortable in her nine-to-five freedom
She must be wicked to deserve such pain
Drunk and lurching like some fallen angel and she’ll
Watch the lights go down again.
There’s no warning just a new lie to mainline to hardline.

She turns the pages and she still feels ageless but now
That thing don’t get to her that way no more.
The Doctors got her, it’s on all the papers and they
Turn it round just like they did before.
There’s no warning just a new lie to mainline to hardline.

Comfortable in your nine-to-five freedom
We must be wicked to deserve such pain.
The Doctors got us, it’s on all the papers and they
Turn it round just like they did before.
Track Name: Be Cool
Well, have you got the fear brother; here brother; can’t stand the glare brother,
Come on with me. Step away from the light.

And I’m not talking to your soul sister, never kissed you, can’t say I ever missed you,
Come on with me, ‘cause I’m going all night.

And the way that I’m feeling tonight, I got the feeling everything is alright, come on and be cool.
So come on, come on, come on, hey man, be cool.

And I’m not working for The Man brother, scam brother, don’t bite the hand brother
Come on with me ‘cause I’m just like you.

And I’m not hitting on your little sister, never kissed her, thinks she’s an A-lister,
Come on with me, ‘cause I’m going there too.

And the way that I’m feeling tonight, it’s like I’m cracking on dynamite. Come on and be cool.
So come on, come on, come on, hey man, be cool.

Well I don’t pay no union dues, sing the blues, I can solve the Rubik’s cube, baby come on with me, Let me blow your mind.

Example: did you hear the thing man and far man and yeah but yeah but nah man and come on with me. Well baby don’t be unkind.

And the way that I’m feeling tonight, it’s like I might not baby maybe I might, come on and be cool.
So come on, come on, come on, hey man, be cool.

Well, I’ve been talking some to God on my iPod and you know He said Sodom come on with me. Let me show you the light.

I quickly skipped on to the next song with Jim Morrison, he said come on son I’ll break it on through to the other side.

And the way that I’m feeling tonight, it’s like I’m cracking on dynamite. Come on and be cool.
So come on, come on, come on, hey man be cool.
Track Name: Pagan Games
Well, I’ve been walking with a gypsy and a clown
The gypsy gave me whiskey and the clown brought me down.
I’ve been painting pictures on a jigsaw puzzle moon
The clouds are making faces at the morning come too soon.
I can see the dolphins dive beneath the ocean waves
Life goes on the fire
Pagan Games. You can’t stop Pagan Games. You won’t stop pagan fire. Oh, Oh

Well, I’ve been walking in the forming morning dew
My body’s on a mission as my thoughts return to you.
I’ve been catching colours in a goblet made of gold
And when the great creator made you girl he went and broke the mould.
I can see you dance before me like a naked flame
Life goes on the fire
Pagan Games. You can’t stop Pagan Games. You won’t stop pagan fire. Oh, Oh

Well, I’ve been walking with a pixie and a thief
The pixie turned her trick and made my hope into belief.
I’ve been painting pictures on a jigsaw puzzle moon
And when the great creator made me girl he went and burnt the spoon.
I can taste you on my lips and smell you in the rain
Life goes on the fire
Pagan Games. You can’t stop Pagan Games. You won’t stop pagan fire. Oh, Oh
Track Name: Lazy Hiatus
Tell me have you ever thrown a dream away
Ever say that you’d go, you knew that you’d stay
Have you ever thrown a stone at a sign
That they said was the truth, you knew they were lying
Have you ever lived in a time that you just can’t stand?

Here I go again here I go again
Won’t you come along won’t you come along
Where the grass is so green and the shadows are long
The Byrds sing a sweet sweet song on the radio

Lazy Hiatus baby. That’s where you’ll find my soul.

Tell me have you ever seen the funny side
Ever laughed like a crazy thalidomide baby
Who ponders alone in a gin-soaked sac
Of an underage mother addicted to crack
But she beats all the odds, cleans up her act
And joins a travelling show.

Here I go again here I go again
Won’t you come along won’t you come along
Where the grass is so green and the shadows are long
The birds sing a sweet sweet song on the radio

Lazy Hiatus baby. That’s where you’ll find my soul.

Tell me have you ever blown a candle out
Ever sat all alone in a room by yourself
Ever tried comb your hair to the right hand side
Continue to comb it a million times
But at the end of the day it just won’t stay the way you want it to

Here I go again here I go again
Won’t you come along won’t you come along
Where the grass is so green and the shadows are long
The birds sing a sweet sweet song on the radio

Lazy Hiatus baby. That’s where you’ll find my soul.
Track Name: Alleluya Pinwizzer
Nobody’s been talking about the things that you’ve been saying ‘cause you don’t say a thing.
You’re always there for me baby like a morning cup of coffee and I do my thing.
One – Two – Three, I pull the trigger and everything else is a breeze.
One drop, two drops, three drops, I’m down on my knees.
I’m singing only you can save me, only you.

Early in this morning I was ringing in the music from the other side of town.
I was feeling San Francisco 1969 as the sun went down.
One-Two-Three, you pull the trigger and everything else is a breeze
But I can’t help thinking that things are not as bad as they’re meant to seem.
I’m singing only you can save me, only you.
Track Name: Seamus O'Marley
Well, roll up another one, I’m fading fast
We’re far from the crowd and it’s far from the last
Pass me another one I want to know
How far we can go.

And we’re flying and we’re gone
And we all can sing along
‘Cos you know that what we’re doing can be wrong.

There’s a glow on your face and a haze in the air
There’s a look in your eye like you’re already there.
Keep the light burning and pass it to me
You’re where I want to be.

And we’re flying and we’re gone
And we all can sing along
‘Cos you know that what we’re doing can’t be wrong.

Well the songs are all sung and the crowd’s gone away
And it’s almost the start of another new day
I can’t think of a better way to see the day in
Than to see it in with a grin.

And we’re flying and we’re gone
And we all can sing along
‘Cos you know that what we’re doing cunt be wrong.
Track Name: Lollywater Money
Good morning coffee you warm soul
Sun cut shapes on my old lino
Makes me wonder why I feel so old
Old is me

Clip the ticket and punch the card
No-one said it would be this hard
Digging holes in my own backyard
Mining for dreams

And all I see is Lollywater Money come rolling free
Won’t you come to me
Lollywater Money come rolling on
Come on and take me home

There’s a woman I thought I knew
Turns out she was just another chance I blew
Love gone cold and hard like old forgotten glue
That’s you.

CHORUS

Evenings now are so cold and still
But my thoughts are racing, tumbling still
Around the empty space I’m using for a head
Am I dead? Or is this living?

CHORUS
Track Name: Tomorrow Comes
I left home, how did I feel?
I had to take it somewhere, I was ready to steal away
And go looking for a good time
Where tomorrow comes and yesterday is a goodbye.

When all your strings are severed and done
Trust your car to take you to a place in the sun
And go looking for the good life
Where tomorrow comes and yesterday is a goodbye.

Change will wait til the end of the road
Haul out, friends come and help you to carry your load
To get you looking at some Should Time
Where tomorrow comes and yesterday is a good time.

Get up, get out, get in the way
Up downtown and ready to face the day
You got to pay for the good times
But tomorrow comes, you turn your soul to the sunshine
Track Name: Summer Baby
See. See my baby. Summer baby. Summer babe.

Champagne sunsets later in the day running down my back like lemonade
Greens are changing, girls are ranging wine drops on my face
And I feel summer’s on the way.

I feel flowers blooming in my head
I up upon the cold and stoned him dead
Howling at the sunrise I ain’t going to compromise this vibe
I feel Summer’s on the rise.

See. See my baby. Summer baby. Summer babe.
Trampoline into the sun ‘cause life’s too short to not have fun
Stop for gasoline and gum
And try to catch the drift we’re on. Try to count the trips we’re on.
Try to catch the drift.

O. M. G. you make me L.O.L.
The sunset looks just like you cast a spell.
Room is warming moon disarming wine drops on your face
And I feel Summer’s on the way.

CHORUS
Track Name: Night Road Out
What’s to become of me?
Thought is no crystal ball.
Somebody said we’re all going down
I want a hand in my own fall.

Taking the night road out of the city,
Back to the hills where I belong.

Three pillars hold me here.
No where I want to be
If you had said how things were going to turn
I wouldn’t change my mind.

Taking the night road out of the city,
Back to the hills where I belong.

There is a picture of you and me.
Cut out of code and on computer screens.
Just so the Woman can say what we are worth
As if there’s nowhere she has never been.

Taking the night road out of the city,
Back to the hills where I belong.
