Track Name: The Tide
Everybody’s talking ‘bout it like it’s a sin,
Take me down, take me down, where a man begins
Fighting on the street, automatic crime
And I’d love to take a runner
Ain’t no little banner gonna pin me down
I got a free thinking mind and a wall of sound
Everybody’s looking at me like I’m a fool
But the love keeps hitting me higher

And if we cut this falling wire
Drink this water it’s drier
I’m gonna set your eyes on fire
We’re gonna burn this town on down, down.
Down.

Everybody eyes you off coz you got the look
And the folks in your hometown won’t even know
Riding on the wave of a public storm
And I’d love to get my gun out
And every little body’s got a place they go
Somewhere in the back of every mind you know
Everytime you bite my little backbone grows
And it gets a little harder

And if the love keeps hitting me higher
Through the trap-door comes desire
You’re the burglar I’m the buyer
In a fortunate disguise
And if we cut this falling wire
Drink this water it’s drier
I’m gonna set your eyes on fire
We’re gonna burn this town on down, down.

You’re no bigger than any other man
With your swollen sense of pride
I will bide my time, I will stand in line
As we just sit back and we wait
For the turning of the tide.

And if the love keeps hitting me higher
Through the trap-door comes desire
You’re the burglar I’m the buyer
An unfortunate disguise
And if we cut this falling wire
Drink this water it’s dryer
I’m gonna set your eyes on fire
We’re gonna burn this town on down, down.
Track Name: Bark'n
I don’t like the, way you think that
You know my name so you know everything about me
You got limbs so, use your own ones
You’re not a charity, you can think for yourself

My fingers, they’re my fingers
They’re my fingers my hard bone and my nails
Go fight your, own battle
I’m not you cup of tea

Now all of the calls serve only to show
You’re not listening to me
Find me out on the road dead tired and alone but
You’re barking down the wrong tree

You can’t use it, time to lose
Oh butter-fingers your fingers slipping from mine
Greetings from the, other side of
The big room where you’re looking, looking to find

My body, it’s my body
It’s my body it’s not your morning snack
I’m running, you’re smiling
Until you find that I’m not coming back

Now all of the calls serve only to show
That you’re not listening to me
Find me out on the road dead tired and alone but
You’re barking down the wrong tree

Maybe you’re falling down
Baby you’re on your own
This time you’ve pushed too hard
I’m not your, I’m not you crutch
Now it’s a long way down
You’ve only got yourself to blame
You’ve had a lovely night
Well two can play
The break, break, breaking game

Brothers of the world
Unite and take my hand
Don’t believe a word
They don’t understand
It’s time to break our lines
It’s time to make a stand
You don’t gotta be
Somebody’s tool you’re not a slave

My body, it’s my body
It’s my body it’s not your morning snack
I’m running, you’re smiling
Until you find that I’m not coming back

All of the calls serve only to show
That you’re not listening to me
Find me out on the road dead tired and alone but
You’re barking down the wrong
You’re barking down the wrong
You’re barking down the wrong
Barking down the wrong tree
Track Name: Mrs Simmons
Mrs Simmons didn’t know
How to fix her plumbing so she
Called me up to get me around
To help her with her problem
Her sink it had overflowed
The pipes had become blocked at the bottom
She asked me if I wanted tea, but said
Well no, I haven’t got none

Her hair was orange like the colour of peaches
Her eyes they sparkled in the midday sun
Oh Mrs Simmons I am under your spell
A new beginning in my life had begun

Me and Mrs Simmons danced in the moon light
Her dress was a shimmer of the deepest green
Oh Mrs Simmons, I think I love you
When I’m with you it’s like I’m living a dream

Her hair was orange like the colour of peaches
Her eyes they sparkled in the midday sun
Oh Mrs Simmons I am under your spell
A new beginning in my life had begun

But she said that we took it too far
Perhaps we could just be friends
Then she introduced me to her daughter
And I fell in love with Miss Simmons instead

Her hair was orange like the colour of peaches
Her eyes they sparkled in the midday sun
Oh Miss Simmons I am under your spell
A new beginning in my life had begun

Her hair was orange like the colour of peaches
Her eyes they sparkled in the midday sun
Oh Miss Simmons I am under your spell
A new beginning in my life had begun
Track Name: Let's Stick Together
Well I find you now with your head held down
And you’re now sure where to go
Gotta find a little peace of mind, gotta make the time
To just sit back let it flow
And the whole damn world’s spinning faster and faster
People lose control
Little boy you gotta find a way to make some space
Medicine for the soul

What say, let’s stick together
What say, let’s be best friends
I know, you been in trouble,
But I think I can understand

No one knows what the future be
But the present now is clear to me
It’s time for you to see
You’ve got a friend in me

Some people pledge that you’re on the ledge
And I’m inclined to agree
I think it’s time for you to settle down, find a patch of ground
Or a bed where you can sleep
You gotta confess, you’re a mess, and your ass in the grass and you’re
Jetting round the world
You gotta explain, all the pain
Little boy I’m gonna help

What say, let’s stick together
What say, let’s be best friends
I know, you been in trouble,
But I think I can understand

No one knows what the future be
But the present now is clear to me
It’s time for you to see
You’ve got a friend

What say, let’s stick together babe
What say, let’s be best friends
I know, you been in trouble,
But I think I can understand

No one knows what the future be
But the present now is clear to me
And now I know you need to see
You’ve got a really, really good friend in me
We’ll fight our mutual enemies
Together like good friends tend to be
It’s time for you to see
You got a really, really, really good friend
Track Name: The Astronaut
Satellites and Meteors, best friends of the Astronaut
When no-one else will guide me on my way
Dead and gone without a trace, just a man alone in space
A man in space alone with naught but shame

I can’t lie I am ashamed
So much easier to run from pain
Cut my cord and drift away
Make my lonely escape in outer space

Explorer of great things to be, there’s no reporting back from me
A million miles is not too far away
Broken hearts and untold lies, things are the things I leave behind
The universe is far too small a place

I can’t lie I am ashamed
So much easier to run from pain
Cut my cord and drift away
Make my lonely escape in outer space

Oh no astronaut
Lost on the way, drifting off course
Drifting away, of course
Come in astronaut
Pick up the phone, answer the call

I can’t lie I am ashamed
So much easier to run from pain
Cut my cord and drift away
Make my lonely escape in outer space
Track Name: Six Little Blessings
This one goes out to the forest
This one goes out to the sea
The one goes out to the mountain
Big enough to block out all our dreams

If I ever made a mess
If I ever caused a scene
It’s my problem I confess
But I can never, never set you free

This one goes out to the wedding
The union of two kindred silent souls
You will be the one that I will marry
Or better yet the one I’ll come to know

Well if I ever made you think
Well that wasn’t my intent
But it was you that drove me to drink
Just wasn’t sure really what that meant

I say just say what you mean
So you’re not saying anything
I’ve run out of faith it seems
Still you’re not saying anything, yeah

This one goes out to the children
Bury us beneath the house and run
Tell them of the family fortune
Why their father’s strung out in the sun

They will never ask me why
They will never really care
They won’t look me in the eye
But by god I know they’ll stare
And I will have to change my name
And I will have to change my face
This one goes out to you my love
And the whole damn human race
