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.

Be Cool 03:15
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.

Pagan Games 03:30
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

Lazy Hiatus 03:52
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.

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.

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.

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
8.
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

Summer Baby 04:38
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
10.
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.
