Instrumental


My Star (Brown/Ibrahim)
To Top


Space exploration for nuclear stations
Nasa corrupters jewelled abductors
Space exploration excursion to the stars
On a military mission
On a military journey to Mars

I'll see you in my star
I'll see you in my star
I'll see you in my star
I'll see you in my star
I'll see you in my star
I'll see you in my star

Solar system bases the new world order
Lust for space dust forming galaxy borders
Never seeking new life only planning war
Sending satellites to new heights
Satellites to destroy it all

I'll see you in my star
I'll see you in my star
I'll see you in my star

Space exploration for nuclear stations
Nasa corrupters jewelled abductors
Space exploration excursion to the stars
On a military mission
On a military journey to Mars

To boldly go where no man has ever been before
Astronauts the new conquistadors

See you in my star
I'll see you in my star
I'll see you in my star
I'll see you in my star
See you in my star
I'll see you in my star
I'll see you in my star
I'll see you in my star



Can't See Me (Brown/Mounfield)
To Top


Down by the river side
I waited there for you
Take you back in time
You're in suspension
Hey I caught you
You cannot hide
It's all inside, easy
She knows you can't see me

Yes Mr Miser
Mr, Mr Mystery she's saying to me
Saying he can't see you
He can't free you
He can't be you
He just wanna be you
He needs a dealer
As a healer

I-I-I've seen that expression on your face
I-I-I could have sent you to that place
Expression can't see me

Yes I'm reminded of those days
Take you back in time
It's all inside
Here comes a reason to my rhyme
The man used to fly
He used to fly easy
But now he can't see me

I know mine
Mine know me
I can sail upon your sea
I can sail upon your sea so easy
She knows you can't see me

I-I-I've seen that expression on your face
I-I-I could have sent you to that place
I know you can't see me

I know you can't see me

I-I-I've seen that expression on your face
I-I-I could have sent you to that place
Expression can't see me



Ice Cold Cube (Brown/Ibrahim)
To Top


Brother fire I got to verse with you
I just ran into this ice cold cube
Thought it's ways could freeze me out
So I left him melting there no doubt hey

I suggest you think again my friend
Love is a circle with no end
A message given heaven sent
I've seen you cause your own descent yeah

I smell a fox all alone at night
Ten thousand footsteps out of sight
I turned your darkness into light
Get down, she'll blind you
Get down, she'll hypnotise you
She'll see clean right inside your plan
And turn to say that ain't no man

Sister fire, I feel your glow
Walk on true cause they don't know
Sister ice I felt your chill
It must have been a bitter pill yeah

I smell a fox all alone at night
Ten thousand footsteps out of sight
I turned your darkness into light
Get down, she'll blind you
Get down, she'll hypnotise you
She'll see clean right inside your plan
And turn to say that ain't no man



Sunshine (Brown)
To Top


The sun yes
The size of a beach ball
The earth shall be the size of a sweet, sweet pea
Let it be, as it goes, blow your nose

Yeah, yeah, yeah I hear you, I hear you calling
Electric lightning lights the night until the morning
I caught you stalling on me every day, no way

I-I

It's the moon yes
That turns the tides
On the ocean bed a starfish starts to slide
Into the sand, the way it planned, right on time

I can see the sunshine in the rain
It's all be done before
That's what she says
I can see you got the
Sunshine in the rain

I-I

I can see the sunshine in the rain
It's all be done before
That's what she says
I can see you got the
Sunshine in the rain

Sunshine in the rain
It's all be done before
That's what she says
I can see you got the
Sunshine in the rain




Lions (Brown)
To Top


I'm alone in the country
Took a walk in the country
All alone in the country yeah yeah yeah

Blade of grass in the country
Sour mash in the country
All the cash in the country yeah yeah yeah

There are no lions in England
There are no lions in England
There are no lions in England no no no

There are no lions in England
There are no lions in England
There are no lions in England no no no

I'll call your home
Then you start delivering
Taking my time then you start your quibbling
Now I know you're meddling, you're still back pedaling
I should have quit you a long long
A long long time ago

There are no lions in England
There are no lions in England
There are no lions in England no, no, no

There are no lions in England
There are no lions in England
There are no lions in England no, no, no

(Instrumental)
No no no lions... in England

No no no lions
No no no lions
No more lions
No more lions, no more in England

There are no lions in England
There are no lions in England no, no, no

There are no lions in England

There are no lions in England no, no, no

There are no lions in England
There are no lions in England
There are no lions in England no, no, no

No, no, no
No, no, no
No, no, no, no, no....



Corpses In Their Mouths (Brown/Ibrahim)
To Top


You tell lies
When the truth will do
You are the social chameleon
What on earth we gonna do with you
Slip your neck into a rope
Show me a smile
You'd run a mile
Then you're free
So where's the goal
Where's the style
You want the dough Got dead sea scrolls for you
And your woman too

She's got corpses in her mouth
Still she's holding hands with you
It's cut like crystal chandeliers
I'll shine like diamonds in her ears

She smokes crack
It's off the beaten track
You are the social chameleon
Yes you change to suit the people around you
It's like the waves that hit the shore
You cannot stand the force of law
Look man, I know it from your nature
Hit the deck, ask the creator
Got dead sea scrolls for you
And your women too

She's got corpses in her mouth
Still she's holding hands with you
It's cut like crystal chandeliers
I'll shine like diamonds in her ears

She's got corpses in her mouth
Still she's holding hands with you
It's cut like crystal chandeliers
I'll shine like diamonds in her ears

She's got corpses in her mouth



What Happened To Ya Part 1 (Brown/Ippinson/Maddix/Ibrahim)
To Top


Full of decision laden with choice
Cast in a picture that is better than most
And while you work on your big master plan
The pawn's around you we're not part of the plan

Extended visions, distorted dreams
All based on image, it's not all that it seems
You'll walk on water if they told you they like
There's just one problem, you just missed the tide

What happened to ya
Did you change your mind
What happened to ya
We were one of a kind
Did you bury your face
Like an ostrich
You can't seem to hold on
You can't seem to get it on, get it on, get it on

Cast iron illusions, feelings locked in a safe
I saw you running to your own secret place
So very trusting of those people around
A new safe haven is the place that you've found

Extended visions distorted dreams
All based on image, it's not all that it seems
You'll walk on water if they told you they like
There's just one problem, you've just missed the tide

What happened to ya
Did you change your mind
What happened to ya
We were one of a kind
Did you bury your face
Like an ostrich
You can't seem to hold on
You can't seem to get it on, get it on, get it on

We were one of a kind

Did you bury your face
Like an ostrich
You can't seem to hold on
You can't seem to get it on, get it on, get it on



What Happened To Ya Part 2 (Brown/Ippinson/Maddix/Ibrahim)
To Top


What happened to ya
Did you change your mind
What happened to ya
We were one of a kind
Did you bury your face
Like an ostrich
You can't seem to hold on
You can't seem to get it on, get it on, get it on

What happened to ya
Did you change your mind

What happened to ya
Did you change your mind

What happened to ya
We were one of a kind
Did you bury your face
Like an ostrich
You can't seem to hold on
You can't seem to get it on, get it on, get it on

Did you change your mind
What happened to ya
We were one of a kind
Did you bury your face

What happened to ya
What happened to ya



Nah Nah (Ippinson)
To Top


Fed up of excuses
There's nothing more to say
Sands of your patience have surely drained away
Backed into a corner built of my design
Peer into the future entwined is yours and mine
I know this can't go on if things remain the same
Drastic changes needed it's driving me insane

Nah nah nah nah nah

Although we realise it I hope it's not too late
Begging all the pardons please don't lock the gate
A spider's web was woven, full of much deceit
I know you are exhausted, too much to repeat
I know this can't go on if things remain the same
The words have failed me there's nothing more to say

Nah nah nah nah nah

Talking about a real thing

I'm too embarrassed to look you in the eye
You stuck your neck out, gosh, at least a thousand times
There's no more courage just to ask the reason why
Why, oh why?

Talking about a real thing
Talking about a real thing

Nah nah nah nah nah



Deep Pile Dreams (Brown)
To Top


I've seen you, you've never seen yourself
That's what you pay your shrink for
You're mean, you thinking of no one but yourself
What do you think all the love's for?

I only ever wanted the one with the flag
But all you ever wanted was a sixty-dollar-bag
And a cheap limousine for your deep pile dream
On the highway

Shut your mouth and bend down low
Sit back and watch the flowers grow
Yeah, people change but it was never a game
Go wash your face and your hands 'cos we all look the same

I only ever wanted the one with the flag
But all you ever wanted was a sixty-dollar-bag
And a cheap limousine for your deep pile dream
On the highway

See no hear no, so why do you go and speak so
Talking pouring scorn on the bone
I closed the door on your cold breath wish
You went and gave your tongue to a devil on a dish

I only ever wanted the one with the flag
But all you ever wanted was a sixty-dollar-bag
And a cheap limousine for your deep pile dream
On the highway

I only ever wanted the one with the flag
But all you ever wanted was a sixty-dollar-bag
And a cheap limousine for your deep pile dream
On the highway
