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

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

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
4.
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
5.
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

I Don't Care 03:31
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
7.
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
8.
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
9.
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

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
