Track Name: How Do You Do?
How Do You Do?

A punctured lung the job's all done it's time to go
The jury's out the plug's pulled out but I don't know
A thunder clap ran up my back from out the blue
The Doc was shocked the Angels mocked as I pulled through

I say how do you do? I say how do you do?
I say how do you do? I say how do you do?

It's time for tears for forty years were stole from me
A time machine a faulty dream is all I see
Baby food ran up that tube to keep me here
The cathode ray just beeped away but no one's near

No chance of recognition what's before my eyes?
The shapes are most appealing but what are all these cries?


I'm feeling strong I can't go on for I've returned
I'll run up to the sky so blue you'll watch me burn
Your name into the cloudy plume that's up so high
A heaven's stain that is your name so God knows why
Track Name: I'm More Alive
I’m More Alive

I've seen your home, I've seen your drive, I'll preach to you I'm more alive
I've watched your face, grin beaming wide, but I am sure, I'm more alive

Polished car polished face, lip sucked into place
Tommy Gun stand up straight, put that food back on your plate
You didn't know that you were born, watching me let out a yawn
Hampstead Heaths are looking clean, a Barclay's Bank would be obscene
That wolf is following me, why did you give him my key?

No need to blow my house down, he'll chew me up and spit me out

I've seen your home, I've seen your drive, I'll preach to you I'm more alive
I've watched your face, grin beaming wide, but I am sure, I'm more alive
Track Name: The Cherry Sun And The Cold, Blue Moon
The Cherry Sun And The Cold Blue Moon

The time has come for me to be there,
heard the clock strike down my spine for her


Take me teach me make me happy,
need me strip me leave some hope for me

Cos I feel and I grab and I steel them back,
the cherry sun the cold blue moon
Throws her waves and she’s gone too soon


The sound of thunder echoes ‘round me,
the Heavens poor their holy love down me
Track Name: A Finaly Tuned Machine
A Finely Tuned Machine


She's finely tuned machine and I'm an engineer, a pioneer with no excuse
She's a high snowy peak and I'm a mountaineer, avoiding fear is no use


She's a finely tuned machine and I just don't know?
She's a finely tuned machine
And I just don't know how she works?


It's been a hard day today and she slips off my boots, warm tender hands on me
And I open my heart and I hand her the noose, my foolish tongue ran free
Track Name: Snow In The Shadow
Snow In The Shadow


Like snow in the shadow, clinging on just trying to be
Only wanting to be, only wanting to be
My faith is in trouble, I need some proof to be shown to me
Only wanting to see, only wanting to see

Who's wrong who is right? Does the day really hate the night?
Only wanting to be, only wanting to be

But if we live for number one, how can a Father love his Son
The sea can't breathe without the moon, these strings are dead without a tune

Tear drops on my pillow, coming from the warmth of love
I hope you can see, what you mean to me
Who's wrong who is right? Does the day really hate the night?
Only wanting to be, only wanting to be
Track Name: I Don't Care
I Don’t Care

Tell me all that you’re thinking, head’s numb brain cells are sinking
Straight down into an inky hole, gotta go

Street lights showing the way home, black girl singing her ring tone
Ears ring an uncomfortable tune

Now I’m there, she rings back

I don’t care

Home grown, straight from my soul
lay down into your home
I'll sleep on your nice clean floor, by your door

Sunlight batters my eyelids, rush back all that I did
Memories won’t let me relax

Now I’m there, she rings back
Track Name: The Leprechaun
The Leprechaun

I let it go and now I know I saw them show their thoughts to me
Children of the wooded realm they’re coming down, the race I used to be

I keep seeing out of the corner of my eyes,
my dream, my life’s gaining speed
So tell me that you saw some Leprechauns on the shore
They’re sensitive they’re subtle not too much trouble
trouble trouble for me

Crazy days and lazy days their little ways just made me smile
A little love a little charm the funny farm beckons for a while
Track Name: She's Ice, She's Fire
She’s Ice, She’s Fire


She's ice she's fire, a mortal desire,
a blade through the greyness a snapping of wire
A multitude of sins, energy in motion, in multiples of ten,
she's the love I'll come home to
she's the love I'll come home to
Yeah! Na na na na na na


It's all gone she said, sprawled across my bed
The bad dream is over, her demon has fled
Raising our glasses spirits overhead
Over the rooftops this is what she said,
this is what she said
Track Name: A Thousand Monks
A Thousand Monks

I can’t comprehend why the Angels would send such a beautiful thing to me
A thousand Monks are punching me drunk and I hope somehow that they will fail

‘Cos I love the taste of the human race

Won in a flash all records were smashed, across the line in plenty of time
When I close my eyes.

I don’t need a pill or that stuff you distil or your Woman to bounce on my knee
I’ve made up my mind and there’s plenty of time for her world to manifest me
Track Name: I Can't Let Them See Us Smiling
I Can't Let Them See Us Smiling

I can’t let them see us smiling they’ve got eyes all around
But one day I’ll be brave enough just wait and see
I’ll show them how life is meant to be

A speck of dust floating out in space, chromosomes just falling into place
Don’t think just do, the Tiger’s out the cage, otherwise we’d never turn the page
Otherwise we’d never turn the page


I can’t let them see us smiling they’ve got eyes all around
But one day I’ll be brave enough just wait and see
I’ll show them how life is meant to be



Your arms your hair your legs the list goes on, the motive’s right the morals are so wrong
Take a breath I’m running out of air, but the child inside he doesn’t even care
The child inside he doesn’t even care
