Gettin' High (Brown/Ibrahim)
To Top


I could have found you if I wanted
I wouldn't even have to try
Saved you if I longed to
You didn't wanna see me by

Getting high
Getting high

I could have you if I wanted
I wouldn't even have to try
Saved you if I longed to
You didn't wanna see me by

Gettin high
Gettin high

I could have found you if I wanted
I wouldn't even have to try
Saved you if I longed to
You didn't wanna see me by

Gettin high
Gettin high

I could astound you if I wanted
I wouldn't even have to try
Saved you if I longed to
You didn't wanna see me by

Gettin high
Gettin high



Love Like A Fountain (Brown)
To Top


I could climb every mountain
For your love is like a fountain

Let it shower down over me
Soak me to the bone
Pour all over me
Am I coming home yeah

I could climb every mountain
For your love is like a fountain

Let it shower down over me
Soak me to the bone yeah
Pour all over me
Am I coming home yeah

I could glide across the ocean
For you love rubs like a lotion

Shower down over me
Soak me to the bone
Pour all over me
Am I coming home yeah

Shower down over me
Am I coming home yeah

Pour all over me
Am I coming home yeah

No no no
Like a fountain

Your love is like a fountain



Free My Way (Brown)
To Top


Jingle jangle here's the jailer
Heaven's here right now on earth

Legal wrangle holy papers
You gotta know your worth

I'm gonna free my way
Be my way
Wonder can you see me laughing in this place
Gonna be my way
Free be my way
Wonder can you see me laughing in this place

Jingle jangle here's the jailer
Heaven's here right now on earth

I'm gonna free my way
Be my way
Wonder can you see me laughing in this place
Gonna be my way
Free be my way
Wonder can you see me laughing in this place

Thou shalt not bear false witness
Against thy neighbour
I was you neighbour
So now you're in danger



Set My Baby Free (Brown/Akinola)
To Top


Said he was a man
And what did he know
Spent his time living in a casino
You never know

Couldn't get away
Couldn't ever get it anyway
Couldn't ever level
Cause he's living like a devil, hey

Hey you ugly people
I want you to set my baby free
Hey people
Set my baby free

Came upon a man
In tune of his libido
Took another's wife
To help him get to sleep so
You never know

Couldn't get away
Couldn't ever get it anyway
Couldn't ever level
Cause he's living like a devil hey

When she turns to smile
And light up from inside
Walking miles
And you ain't got nobody by your side

Hey ugly people
I want you to set my baby free
Hey people
Set my baby free

When she turns to smile
And light up from inside
Walking miles
You ain't got nobody by your side

Hey ugly people
I want you to set my baby free
Hey people
Set my baby free

Set my baby free
Set my baby free



So Many Soldiers (Brown/McCracken/Wills)
To Top


Woke up so fresh this morning
Love to wake up to your heat
Smiles at traffic lights
I'm so selective with the company I keep

Some never gonna see the evening
Picking one too many fights
Hear a new born baby getting stronger
Through the freezing winter nights

Some never get to see the morning
Claiming darkness feeds there needs
Some are breathing under water
On a river in the reeds

Only so many soldiers come home
Only so many soldiers
So many soldiers

Woke up so fresh this morning
Love to wake up to your heat
Smiles at traffic lights
I'm so selective with the company I keep

So many soldiers come home
So many soldiers
So many soldiers come home

This road you walk
This path you tread
Sweet I shall see
And heaven fed

These avenues
And bridges far
These narrow streets
And these backyards to me

Only so many soldiers come home
So many soldiers
So many soldiers come home
Soldiers
Soldiers
Soldiers
Soldiers
Come home
Come home



Golden Gaze (Brown/Wolstencroft/Bennett/McCracken/Wills)
To Top


Through the haze and the smoke in the room
I caught your golden gaze
I knew these were better days

With the rays of the sun through the roof
I caught your golden gaze
Knew these were better days
Your golden gaze

Star spangled shades shade your eyes
But you could never hide your golden gaze
Your golden gaze

Red summers skies bright your smile
And never could hide your golden gaze
Your golden gaze
Your golden gaze
Your golden gaze
Your golden gaze

In the dawn of the morning rain
I caught your golden gaze
Your golden gaze

Through the haze and the smoke in the room
I caught your golden gaze
I knew these were better days
Your golden gaze

Your golden gaze

Your golden gaze



Dolphins Were Monkeys (Brown/McCracken/Wills)
To Top


I could be the next to see
That there'll be nobody there
If you feel excited
Throw your hands into the air

No one can judge you baby
Who don't live your life
I need the resistance held by
Your astrological sign

So now I'm caught in the middle
You're next to me
I swim with the fishes
Who come from the sea
The dolphins were monkeys
That didn't like the land
Should I be walking on the beach
Then I'd be holding your hand

I could be the next to see
That there'll be nobody there
If you feel excited
Throw your hands into the air

No one can judge you baby
Who don't live your life
I need the resistance held by
Your astrological sign

So now I'm caught in the middle
You're next to me
No one alive can lock the door of your dreams
Caught in the middle
You're next to me
I swim with the fishes
Who come from the sea
The dolphins were monkeys
That didn't like the land
Should I be walking on the beach
Then I'd be holding your hand

If you feel excited
Throw your hands into the air
If you feel excited
Throw your hands into the air
If you feel excited
Throw your hands into the air

No one can judge you baby
Who don't live your life
I need the resistance
Held by your astrological sign



Neptune (Brown/Richardson)
To Top


Ladies and gentlemen
On our left is Neptune
Wake up, you're going places
Without ever leaving a trace

This grace can help you wander
Wake up, you're going places
Without ever leaving a trace
The smile on a little child's face

Ladies and gentlemen
On our right we have mars
Wake up, you're going places
Without ever leaving a trace

This grace can help you wander
Wake up, you're going places
Without ever leaving a trace
The smile on a little child's face

Wake up your going places
Without ever leaving a trace
Wake up your going places

Ladies and gentlemen
On our left is Neptune



First World (Brown/Ibrahim)
To Top


Swansong over the rooftop
Call to the kid next door
Let it be proclaimed
In the wind and the rain
Gotta do that

Do you really think so
Do you really think so

Hope that the light of the first world
Won't dark the light of the third world
Wash the darkness from your eyes
It's time to let your nature rise
Roses in the garden
Hummingbirds and butterflies
Flutter by

Swansong over the rooftop
Call to the kid next door
Let it be proclaimed
In the wind and the rain
Gotta do that

Do you really think so
Do you really think so

Hope that the light of the first world
Won't dark the light of the third world
Wash the darkness from your eyes
It's time to let your nature rise
Roses in the garden
Hummingbirds and butterflies
Flutter by

Hope that the light of the first world
Won't dark the light of the third world
Wash the darkness from your eyes
It's time to let your nature rise
Roses in the garden
Hummingbirds and butterflies
Flutter by

Do you really think so
Do you really think so
Do you really think so
Do you really think so
Do you really think so
Do you really think so
Do you really think so
Do you really think so



Babasonicos (Brown/Tunon/Kebleris)
To Top


You weren't there that night
You didn't even get it right

You weren't there that day
I know you will never know
That the lady got no sole
She got no sole

You weren't there that night
You didn't even get it right

You weren't there that day
I know you will never know
That the lady got no sole
She got no sole

She got no sole
Got no sole yeah
