Track Name: Good Sunday waves
We've been through too much for a normal afternoon
Piranha fish in skintight bowls could understand our gloom
What say we skip this place
Lest we waste another phrase

Bridge:
Here, you hold the kite
But take good care now, hold on tight

There were times when we should really be together
Times when chimes of confidence would echo by the night
But better than to be away
These times are here to stay
Now to cut through all the fright

Bridge:
Here, you hold the kite
But take good care now, hold on tight
If the clouds whip up a wind
Plant your feet, you'll be alright

Chorus:
Good Sunday waves
Everything a great man craves
Is in these arms of yours
And they say only

We could go and sit and we could talk for hours
Head out to the park and spark the stars among the flowers
See our family, talk to friends
Offer strangers both our hands
Hope to calm down, never knowing why
So why not trust me here
Come undone, forget your fears
Grab your dreams and make 'em fly

Bridge:
Here, you hold the kite
But take good care now, hold on tight
If the clouds whip up a wind
Plant your feet, you'll be alright

Chorus:
Good Sunday waves
Everything a great man craves
Is in these arms of yours
And they say only Jesus saves

Jesus says that you do too babe
Track Name: Thieves may steal her
The empty fields, no longer empty now
Unfold undaunted to the sun
My sweat returns to scourge me from the brow
Am I the feeling this has just begun

Would you be out here, in other ways
Just the way I'd get the gold to shine
Time has come, and in any case
I'll alter all to give you back what's mine

Chorus:
It's a hard life, take it the way it leaves
Sad and lonely, one and only
Thieves may steal her, hit and run
Try and live her, hit and run

These are the rural years, out in the open
Fences stretch to bind the borders home
Something retches so, inside me
Is the urge to run on by the gnome

Early morning cognac has a way of homing hard
Marihuana afternoons can make your mind fly by the shard

Chorus:
It's a hard life, take it the way it leaves
Sad and lonely, one and only
Thieves may steal her, hit and run
Try and live her, hit and run

Solo

Chorus:
It's a hard life, take it the way it leaves
Sad and lonely, one and only
Thieves may steal her, hit and run
Try and live her, hit and run
Track Name: Trace
Raise every freak who will murder for dirt
The word of our Lord, brothers, must be heard
You gave us freedom of one-station speech
And a very romantical death on the beach
Try to find quiet, seek to come away clean
Not only lean guys will prove to be mean

Chorus:
Home needs a range, have fire will bear
How to ban bad from within your own lair?
Silent and strange, strangeness and charm
'I love you so' and 'Where do I arm?'
We are a firebase in a state of alarm

Raise every voice for the bird that can't fly
But never to speak as murder goes by
People believe what they see on tv
I need to sleep, don't you Winfrey me

Chorus:
Home needs a range, have fire will bear
How to ban bad from within your own lair?
Silent and strange, strangeness and charm
'I love you so' and 'Where do I arm?'
We are a firebase in a state of alarm

Bridge:
Dontcha fool us, we was made with eyes to free
We rule us, if we only wish to be
Can't shake us, we is absolutely free
But I lie awake at nights, feel the faces I can't see
Need the places I won't be
Have my fire walk with me
Seek a bleeding trace of me
A trace of me

Keep me posted, but don't expect me
Track Name: Lie back hold tight
I was standing on the leading edge - caught the fire below
Ran into the bleeding wedge - it ain't there you know

I couldn't jump
And that's just as well, sweet tiger
Real as it seems, wider than hell, high as the Eiger

Now I'm freaking on the heady hedge - fly the fiery glow
Stumble over every pledge - I'm still here you know

I didn't ever run out on you - but I couldn't run home
And by the time I woke - I woke in Rome

I couldn't jump
And that's just as well, sweet tiger
Real as it seems, wider than hell, high as the Eiger

Chorus:
Lie back, hold tight - let me bring you here tonight
Hold on, all's well - baby I'm sure that I'll see you in hell
Hold on, well's well - baby I'll wait 'til we meet up in hell

If the people I meet are ever discrete
You won't know what hit you

When the heavenly fleet comes sailing to land
Baby I'll be there to take your sweet hand

I couldn't jump
And that's just as well, sweet tiger
Real as it seems, wider than hell, high as the Eiger

Chorus:
Lie back, hold tight - let me bring you here tonight
Hold on, all's well - baby I'm sure that I'll see you in hell
Hold on, well's well - baby I'll wait 'til we meet up in hell

I couldn't jump - just as well

Bridge

Chorus:
Lie back, hold tight - let me bring you here tonight
Hold on, all's well - baby I'm sure that I'll see you in hell
Hold on, well's well - baby I'll wait 'til we meet up in hell

I couldn't jump - just as well
Track Name: Siege
Sun grows on autumn leaves
On ale and high
I sit back and watch the breakers as the gulls fly by

I nod and find your look
Smouldering and sensual
A wanton look
But casual

Bridge:
If I need to run to you
Then this will not be real
I know the arguments can't
Change the way I feel
If I need to run to you
Then this will not be real
I know the arguments can't
Change the way I feel

Smile and you can take me home
But only if you speak
I'm weary of the weak
Not all roads lead to Rome

Take my hand and run me off
Frisk me from the fray
Don't let the pain inside
Last beyond today

Bridge:
If I need to run to you
Then this will not be real
I know the arguments can't
Change the way I feel
If I need to run to you
Then this will not be real
I know the arguments can't
Change the way I feel

Chorus:
Troy would prolly burn for you
Breech its own big walls
I'll burn it for me and wonder
Would you have the balls?

Solo

Bridge:
If I need to run to you
Then this will not be real
I know the arguments can't
Change the way I feel
If I need to run to you
Then this will not be real
I know the arguments can't
Change the way I feel

Chorus:
Troy would prolly burn for you
Breech its own big walls
I'll burn it for me and wonder
Would you have the balls?

Chorus:
Troy would prolly burn for you
Breech its own big walls
I'll burn it for me and wonder
Would you have the balls?
Track Name: Progress
There's guns in the desert
Loose heads in the sand
Bankers in calculus
Dotting the Strand

There is an aging smile
Coming to mind
Flat cowboy hats left
In tracks left behind

That mine's mine!
Dance, moddafokka!

There's a fresh ballot
In somebody's hand
Layers of pipeline
All over the land

Where the buck stops
There's a buck to be made
Give us not freedom
But teach us the trade

That mine's mine!
Dance, moddafokka!

This is when glory comes
Making pits with homemade bombs
All good virgins will wait up for you
But hang on, what's a girl get
When she gets like you?
And they're building an Ikea close to home

Solo

Progress is wonderful
Dance, moddafokka!
Track Name: Roquefort
Some tongue says it's a bell of dust over town
A French stench, a Dutch dusk, blue turned too brown
I've seen it from the Mediterranean, way up in the air
I thought the place had burned down, fell into despair
And one month later failed to notice the trees
Were clad the same shade, no longer aware
Can you believe I could not stop to stare?

Crowds of speeding vehicles and layers of slayersmoke
Are becoming more intensive, it might just be time we croaked
Spit our insides on the table, leave our children here to die
The Lord said: go and multiply - and Lord, we multiplied

I don't think Belgium's greatest poet ever really lied
It's time we turned the heat down if we don't want to get fried
Which might just be tough on Jekylls who are also Mr. Hyde
We have taken ourselves for a pretty long ride

They've got me cornered
Four green eyes in a cool grey kitchen
Their eyes are moving fast
Their fourteen lids keep twitching
I have to scratch my limbs
'Cause everywhere I'm itching
And they tell me I cause their disease to be
I wish they would only be friendlier to me

"Burn your cities and burn your farms
Your cars, your wives, your children
Send the whole place up in dazzling sparks, but
Try to save your own neck from cutting through itself

There'd be no end to the laughter above you
Around you the multitude of weirdos would astound you
Room to live and rooms to let
You'd hire them? You bet
Your life on your own cook-ups instead"

Our love of life forfeits our living for ourselves
We blame our helplessness and everybody else
We're bound and yet we claim we are the gods themselves
And lock ourselves away in private padded hells
Our dirt engulfs the globe and punishes the world
That let us run around on it, our petty flags unfurled
We should have been extinguished when our first flame curled
Track Name: Linda
In the cold of a broken morning
I hide at the break of day
Unspoken words of warning
Would keep the ghosts away
I flake when the ache comes swarming
I shake when I'm not around
It's like a Daedalus dawning:
something's wrong, but not yet found

I really love you, Linda, I really love you so
I really need you, Linda, how could I let you go?

To the sound of the leaving people
I cross a fractured night
Deep asleep I turn and tumble
Steerless bird in ragged flight
One wing on the brim of the chasm
I wrap around my love
Unaware, in an empty spasm
I fight with the white above

I really love you, Linda, I really love you so
I really need you, Linda, how could I let you go?

Chorus:
Linda, in her daily dress, barges in to bless
All she finds is hers to take
Trudgin' over there
Time to hide you anywhere
Meet the monster mornin' snake

You're a sun descending
Prone to twisted things
Shops of horrors pending
Righteous while you melt my wings
If you don't ditch the habit
And head home in your pram
How will I sleep another minute in
The heat of Amsterdam?

I really love you, Linda, I really love you so
I really need you, Linda, how could I let you go?

Chorus:
Linda, in her daily dress, barges in to bless
All she finds is hers to take
Trudgin' over there
Time to hide you anywhere
Meet the monster mornin' snake

Bridge:
It isn't hard to dig
It is so dumb to do
And so in every swig
I wish the worst to you
You've got the hardest coming
You pulled it down on you
Now hear the big dude strumming as I
Lay this down for you
You've got no right to amble
Into my daft domain
See, it is mine to roam and ramble
Through pleasure and in pain
You want to stay away
Get lost, you bleedin' bitch
Don't hit the danger switch
Screw off, you stupid cow
Don't want to know you anyhow
I can do without this
I don't need this shit
I'm where I want to be and hell
I like it

Chorus:
Linda, in her daily dress, barges in to bless
All she finds is hers to take
Trudgin' over there
Time to hide you anywhere
Meet the monster mornin' snake

Chorus:
Linda, in her daily dress, barges in to bless
All she finds is hers to take
Trudgin' over there
Time to hide you anywhere
Meet the monster mornin' snake

That's what you get
For your useless stress
One shot to the head
Nothing less.
Track Name: Easy days
If I'd remember
Just where I'd been today
With all that's sad and done
We might have things to say
'Cause I can see what you can see
And you can see what's left of me
Eye to eye there's things to free
That only we can see

Sense hides in cages
There it builds a fragile cast
Out in the cold it rages
Flashes by and hollers past
We all got these feet to walk
And it may be a long walk home
Feels so good to balk, babe
Then to carry on to roam

Chorus:
Oh, easy days ain't there for me
Easy ways ain't ever free
Easy rivers cry to flee
Easy days won't ever

Friends find the pages
If they read up right, they say
I never found the book
Who took the thing away?
If I have to walk these feet
I'd rather leave this empty street
Blunder through the faces of
Tall structures 'til we meet

In burning ember
Vows of ours will sway
It's been that way before
It's still that way today
That's the thing that's bugging me
I know we got these eyes to see
But I can't see through walls
And I can't be where I can't be

Chorus:
Oh, easy days ain't there for me
Easy ways ain't ever free
Easy rivers cry to flee
Easy days won't ever

Bridge:
All songs and dances
Well they just sing the same to me
Things we may yet do
Just to find the us in we
If I have to work these eyes
I'd like to do without the lies
Wade on through the water
I may find you here in me

Chorus:
Oh, easy days ain't there for me
Easy ways ain't ever free
Easy rivers cry to flee
Easy days won't ever

Chorus:
Oh, easy days ain't there for me
Easy ways ain't ever free
Easy rivers cry to flee
Easy days won't ever be
Track Name: Void
She blind girl said to me: 'I'd like to see what it's like to be you'
I said: 'Cover your eyes
Prepare yourself for a big surprise
I find myself in dying eyes
I lie awake in white night
That's how I need to be
You'd hate to see what it's like to be me
That's how I need to be
Wait 'til you see what it's like to be me
That's how I need to be
You don't wanna see what it's like to be me'

Chorus:
She blind girl took my hand, said
'Spare me the stand, but I'd take it for you
Even the words that I solemnly swear to speak
May not exactly be true
They may not be true
They may not be'

Now in the arms of her
I wake to be what it's like to be you
I find all your lies
All fall down in a blown reprise
I find myself in frying eyes
I holler out in white night
That's how to harm me, sir
That's what you do if you don't believe her
That's how to harm me, sir
Take good care to never leave her, and

Chorus:
She blind girl took my hand, said
'Spare me the stand, but I'd take it for you
Even the words that I solemnly swear to speak
May not exactly be true
They may not be true'

Chorus:
She blind girl took my hand, said
'Spare me the stand, but I'd take it for you
Even the words that I solemnly swear to speak
May not exactly be true
They may not be true

Now, in the arms of her I wake to be what it's like to be you

Solo
Track Name: Me
Raised in the land of the undead trying
a-lovin' alla da babes out frying
Alla tourist ta-ta-trainloads a-coming
All for the power of perfidious plumbing

Gaze at the hand of a bloodred prying
Lying alone, in a wet, in a death-defying
Headbed, Fred said the right thing
But he musn't have known he was talking 'bout ya

Bad thing, talking 'bout ya sad thing
Poor thing, pur sang a bitchen hiding

Stuck in the mud, a solidified flailform
Framed by the law of another man's norm
Faced with a fullblown fight with your me
All you can do is run to be free

Chorus:
Me - I've been down with ya babe
We've been all about the floor
See - I'm a clown, but maybe
I can make you cry for more

Nipped in the bud, a personified hailstorm
Trapped like a brat in a summercamp dorm
Who said the way out of here don't lie free?
It just is so hard to see

Bad thing, talking 'bout ya sad thing
Poor thing, pur sang a bitchen hiding

Game for the lame inflight reminder
Mole in a hole unlimited
Deathdrops do not come much kinder
Much less thus less weak and timid

Chorus:
Me - I've been down with ya babe
We've been all about the floor
See - I'm a clown, but maybe
I can make you cry for more

Solo

La la la la
Aaah aah

Chorus:
Me - I've been down with ya babe
We've been all about the floor
See - I'm a clown, but maybe
I can make you cry for more

If the fall can ever be
Save a stretch of sky for me
I will freefall down to you
Through the grey and the high-rise blue

Bad thing, talking 'bout ya sad thing
Poor thing, pur sang a bitchen hiding

Do not cry, do not try
In any way to follow me
Save your breath, be so sly
Leave me fly my Wounded Knee
Track Name: Damnation paint
Babe, let's never have Paris
Always a sad place to be
Cafés and bars, the occasional arts
And Atlanta by color tv

Now this is a bad place for romance
Manhood is out on a spree
Doesn't feel right for to dance
Knowing them gunning for me

Chorus:
The face of disaster is showing its nastier side to me now
And I will not give in
I struggle, then break
And give in
This is damnation paint

Babe, why have they made woman?
Could you just run that by me?
Is a joke, never mind
I know that they are
And that that is their reason to be

So if I'm gone tonight, don't come looking for me
Happen away by yourself
Be as you are, as you see
Don't you go worry 'bout me

Chorus:
The face of disaster is showing its nastier side to me now
And I will not give in
I struggle, then break
And give in
This is damnation paint

Solo

Damnation paint
