I Want You To Know
To Top


Did you think that you had it all worked out
But then they changed their minds
You're left with the feeling that you've been left out
Without a thought for who you left behind

Well there's a tried and tested potion that I know
Go out and get loaded go and give it a go
I want you to know, yeah I want you to know

Were all of your cards marked in advance
As they threw them on the table
There's no such thing as a second chance
Look at Auntie George and Uncle Mabel

Well there's a tried and tested
Potion that they know
Sat down with arms folded they
Don't wanna know

So did you think that you had it all worked out
But then they changed their minds
You're left with the feeling that you've been left out
Without a thought for who you left behind

Well there's a tried and tested
Notion that they know
Now you're feeling loaded
You've got nowhere to go

I want you to know
I want you to know
I want you to know
I want you to know
I want you to know
Yeah I want you to know
Yeah I want you to know
Yeah I want you to know
Yeah I want you to know
Yeah



Blinded By The Sun
To Top


How would you feel if I was to
Kneel right down at your feet
Right now is the way it's going to
Be from now until forever
Let's have less of getting clever with me

Who would you blame for blowing
The flame right out
Is it me, there is no doubt
I can do what I want to do from now until forever
Let's have less of getting clever with me

You're wasting your time and my time as well
La la la living a lie I guess that time will tell
You're making excuses for the things you've never done
You're walking in circles blinded by the sun,
Blinded by the sun

Who would you blame for blowing
The flame right out
Is it me, there is no doubt
I can do what I want to do from now until forever
Let's have less of getting clever with me

You're wasting your time and my time as well
La la la living a lie I guess that time will tell
You're making excuses for the things you've never done
Walking in circles blinded by the sun,
Blinded by the sun

I don't mean to sound unkind to you
You'll just have to go and find something else to do
And don't ask me what went wrong,
The list goes on and on
And on
The list goes on and on and on
The list goes on and on



Suicide Drive
To Top


Please may I leave the table
I don't think that I'll be able
To swallow your family values again today
Because a giant squid
He stole my wife and kid
Full story and pix
Ten pence off your Weetabix, yeah, yeah

Sometimes this world just drives you crazy, lately
Yeah and the smoke gets in your eyes
Run the exhaust back inside
Close the windows and take a ride
I've got a place to go
There's nowhere to hide on Suicide Drive

Drive as fast as you can
I speed therefore I am
And no one can tell me better when I'm high
But the earth's full of holes
And outer space is closed
It's mine and I'll wash it
As fast as I like while I've got it yeah

Sometimes this world just drives you crazy, lately
Yeah and the smoke gets in your eyes
Run the exhaust back inside
Close the windows and take a ride
I've got a place to go
There's nowhere to hide on Suicide Drive

Mile after mile,
Superdupermegahyperchocablocka-aisles
Where do we go from here

Sometimes this world just drives you crazy, lately
Yeah and the smoke gets in your eyes
Run the exhaust back inside
Close the windows and take a ride
I've got a place to go
Nowhere to hide on Suicide Drive




The Boy In The Picture
To Top


I asked the boy in the picture what could he see
He said it's been twenty long years
But you still look like me

If you find somebody that you need
Go ahead and tell her, show her what you mean
And soon you'll find love is blind and free
If you see Sally or Smokey say hello for me
Tell them I hope they're happy
Working the beach, just out of reach, but free

I asked the boy in the picture
how's your brother been
He said he's doing just fine now but
He's still a little too thin

If you find somebody that you need
Go ahead and tell her, show her what you mean
And soon you'll find love is blind and free
If you see Sally or Smokey say hello for me
Tell them I hope they're happy
Working the beach, just out of reach, but free

And then the boy in the picture he asked me
Got any tips where do I go wrong and
Who am I going to be



Love Is The Law
To Top


We lived in a dogfish egg case, you could barely call it home
Sorry little lot no roof on top but the fish left us alone
Try a little more said the girl next door it's time to roam

Mad Lizzy Crumbs blind cobblers thumbs were a sight to behold
She was a rum old slapper and we always
Tried to get her pants off when she phoned
Left her cap by the sink it's not what you think
Oh take me home


Now we know where we are going baby
We can lay back and enjoy the ride
Take in the sights and drown in our senses
Love is the law so take me deep inside

Strap on Sally chased us down the alley
We feared for our behinds
Oasis was a shop with shoes so hot
They were sure to blow your mind
Running so fast I can taste the past
Oh take me home

These waters run deep it's clear my little one
Blue velvet star sky not a sound
The light in your eyes the smile on your ruby lips
Tells me my lost soul is found

Now we know where we are going baby
We can lay back and enjoy the ride
Take in the sights and drown in our senses
Love is the law so take me deep inside



Happiness Is Eggshaped
To Top


Happiness is egg-shaped
And love's a circle with no end
It's only four o'clock in the morning
And you're still driving me around the bend

I'll tell you something, I'll tell you true
I've got a letter to send to you

It's twenty feet tall and it's sprayed on a wall
I'm gonna post it from a fifth floor window
Yeah, yeah, crash it right down on your car
I don't know maybe then that'll teach you
Not to kiss the sky too hard

I'll tell you something, I'll tell you true
I've got a letter to send to you
You're too busy dreaming, so what am I going to do?

Got to get you right off of my back
'Cause you're no fun girl
My whole world's turning black
'Cause you're no fun girl

I know there's two sides to every story
You can keep your kiss of death
'Cause I choose glory, yeah

Happiness is egg-shaped
And love's a circle with no end
It's only four o'clock in the morning
And you're still driving me around the bend

I'll tell you something, I'll tell you true
Got a letter to send to you
You're too busy dreaming, so what am I going to do?

Got to get you right off of my back
'Cause you're no fun girl
My whole world's turning black
'Cause you're no fun girl

I know there's two sides to every story
You can keep your kiss of death
'Cause I choose glory, yeah



Love Me And Leave Me
To Top


Don't believe in Jesus
Don't believe in Jah
Don't believe in the wars
We fight just to prove how real we are

I believe in lovers, I believe in friends
I believe in heaven here on earth
'Til the, the beginning ends

Love me and leave me
Love me and leave me
Love me and leave me
Leave me to love

Don't you ever tell me it came from above
Just love me and leave me
Leave me to love

I believe in heroes, I believe in stars
I believe that we'll meet one day,
Say hello in some astral bar

I believe in brothers
I know you know who you are
Here's to those who bore us and
Made us what we are



Round The Universe
To Top


Did I step down from a spaceship
That was orbiting your earth?
Shining like a star above
You way down in the dirt

Won't you take me to your leader,
Won't you show me round the sights?
I don't think I've landed here before
But then again I might

Because your face looks so familiar
But your eyes have lost their shine

I can take you round the universe
In a hot wired police car
We can ram-raid Mars and Jupiter
And drive right through a star
There's one thing you can do for me
Hear me now my friend
Tell me, tell me, tell me why
All good things must come to an end?

Did I crash land in your conscience?
Did I rain on your parade?
Am I your alien abduction nightmare?
Won't you be my slave?

Is there anybody in there?
Hey there earthling get the phone
Your virtual reality's a house it's not a home

Well a truth as strange as fiction is
Right there in your eyes



1999
To Top


She likes to rise early in the morning
She does her best to blow the cobwebs away
And if it's still light maybe she'll skip breakfast
And hope that someone can throw a little stardust her way, yeah

Crossing the room the day after the night before nightmare
Pink blue eyes drink in the aftermath
The world's her oyster anything she chooses
This little girl doesn't know where her shoes is, yeah

Sixteen sweet Chablis sham kisses
Seventeen nothing's whispered in her ear
Eighteen attempts on her best pair of knickers
1999 was a hell of a year

She likes to rise early in the morning
She does her best to blow the cobwebs away
And if it's still light maybe she'll skip breakfast
And hope that someone can throw a little stardust her way, yeah

That must have been a night to remember
Shame she forgot



Standing On Your Head
To Top


He's falling down a staircase
he don't know just how to stop
He's forty flights from bottom and sixty from the top
He's a man on a mission as brave as he's sane
A lonely life's ambition got a sieve for a brain
You won't miss your water 'til your well runs dry

You can't taste the truth
when you're drinking a lie
It's a long hard road but we've
got to make it through
So tell me, tell me, tell me what
in the world are we gonna do ?

So don't dig yourself any deeper
The only color that I see is red
My life will be so much sweeter
When I'm standing, tall on your head

And when you reach the bottom when
you hit my killing floor
I'll be there to greet you
and show you to the door
It's a bright sunny day, not a cloud in the sky
So say your prayers one last time
Cause today's the day you die



Hello
To Top


I know the wind and the rain and the lightning
And the thunder's filled my brain
Have I changed ? I'm asking you

All I know is the sun and it's shining
Way above my cloud so high it can't be found
We all look around

For the times we left behind
Oh well never mind, I'll take you there tomorrow
And I'm sorry if I seem to always vent my spleen
It's not the path I choose to follow
So hello

And I hope you're still my friend
I think I'm on the mend
And you know I don't mean to offend
I wish we all could fly

All I know is the sun and it's shining
Way above my cloud
So high it can't be found
