Track Name: The Deer's Cry
Feel it all around you boy
It never stops
It’s even in your dreams
Everyone around you wants
A little drop
A taste of the libertines

Pour myself another one
I think I’ll have it all
Never gonna live my life
With my back against the wall

The deers are crying
Tears are rollin’ down their face
Get my cup boy fill it up
A toast to the human race

Fear is risin’
It’s risin’ up all over the place
Close your eyes but you just can’t hide
It’s yours and my disgrace

Settle down
Find your own place in a lonely town
Feel your crown
Falling to the ground

Fancy cars
Filling up space in the lonely hearts
Watchin’ stars
Wavin’ their guitars

The deers are crying
Tears are rollin’ down their face
Get my cup boy fill it up
A toast to the human race

Fear is risin’
It’s risin’ up all over the place
Close your eyes but you just can’t hide
It’s yours and my disgrace
Track Name: Checkmate
You’ve got a lot of nerve
You’re gettin’ braver
You’re walkin’ round here like the chosen one

You’ll get what you deserve
You’re not my saviour
My time is comin then I’m on the run

Well it’s alright
They tell you
Everyone’s the same
But I don’t wanna be a pawn in no-one’s game

It’s not so simple see
It’s gettin’ stranger
I look around me I don’t know no-one

Ain’t got no family tree
Our line’s in danger
We’re all just runnin’ to the kingdom come

But it’s alright
They tell you
Everyone’s the same
But I don’t wanna be a pawn in no-one’s game

Checkmate, checkmate, checkmate, checkmate…
Track Name: Mario (You Brought All The Computers)
I’ll count to forty-nine
And then I’ll seek
All these friends of mine
Hiding in our street
When the darkness comes
We’ll just keep on playing

You were the ruination
Of my world
Mario
You brought all the computers
Track Name: Tea-Time Song
Onions, gravy, mashed potatoes and chicken for tea
Eat it up, it keeps you goin’ all night
Set the table, do the dishes it’s all part you see
Drink your coffee, wash it down it’s so nice

Oh, mmmm, so good
Oh, oh , oh, mmmm, mmmm, it’s so nice

Sometimes we go out to dinner, we live for the scene
All dressed up, you know she’s lookin’ so fine
Think that I could eat the whole of her, she tastes so sweet
Sometimes find it hard believin’ she’s mine

Oh, mmmm, so good
Oh, oh , oh, mmmm mmmm she’s so fine

Oh, mmmm so good
Oh, oh , oh, mmmm, mmmm, she’s so fine
She’s so fine
She’s so fine
She’s so fine
Give it to me girl

Oh, mmmm, so good
Oh, oh , oh, mmmm, mmmm, she’s so fine
Track Name: Watch The Rain
Slow down

Take it easy now

You’ve come a long way now rest for a while

You’ll soon be gone



Keep your head down

It’ll all work out

That’s what they say but I don’t know

Anymore



Watch the rain fall down

Leave its lovelorn stain on the ground

It’ll soon elope

On a ray of hope

Never found



Sunshine

You gotta tow the line

Just hold your tongue we’re almost through

Then you’re gone



These are hard times

Get it through your mind

I never knew the dark could be so blue



I watch the rain fall down

Leave its lovelorn stain on the ground

It’ll soon elope

On a ray of hope

Never found



Dark clouds

On the wind a comin’

Shelter me

From the storm



And watch the rain fall down

Leave its lovelorn stain on the ground

It’ll soon elope

On a ray of hope



Feel my pain pour out

Weave a lonely road in the sound

I could ease my hurt

And return to dirt

Never found
Track Name: Often Wonder
I often wonder
Where I come from
What makes me feel this way
What if how come

All of these feelings
They plague my mind
They roll around, around till
I’m out of time

Oh they pull me in
Put me down
Lift me up and
Push me round
Wipe this smile from my face
Disappear without a trace

If I was older
Would I be wise
Enough to see the love that
Comes shining from your eyes

It’s elementary
Or so I’m told
You can’t fill up the heart if
The man ain’t got no soul

Oh they pull me in
Put me down
Lift me up and
Push me round
Wipe this smile from my face
Disappear without a trace

Oooh I often wonder
Oooh I often wonder
Oooooooooooooh
Oooh I often wonder
Track Name: All I Need
Simple life for me

It’s all I need

It’s all I need
Track Name: Julie-Anne
All of the people that are hangin’ around

Layin’ your pound on my dreams

Gotta tell you that you’re weighin’ me down

Can’t you hear my screams



Got to feelin’ like a sinkin’ stone

Got no place in the world

Got to feelin’ like I’m all alone

If you see my girl



Won’t you tell her I love her

Tell my baby I need her

If you see my Julie-Anne

Won’t you tell her I love her

Tell my baby I need her

Won’t you tell her I’m blue and

I need her hand

All of the feelings that are drivin’ me mad

Been drivin’ me mad for years

Lost everything that I ever had

Realised my fears



Gotta get up off my knees somehow

Get us back in the world

Gotta make my lady hear my vow

If you see my girl



Won’t you tell her I love her

Tell my baby I need her

If you see my Julie-Anne

Won’t you tell her I love her

Tell my baby I need her

Won’t you tell her I’m blue and

I need her hand
Track Name: The Old Timer
So I met an old timer

Gave me things that I need you know

Even my part in this ugly show

Never met a soul kinder

Took a part of him every day

Opened his heart and I heard him say



I’ve learned some things

Turned wood and pulled strings

But that’s not all I am

If I done wrong

I didn’t mean harm

I was a gentle man



Tell me something old timer

Do you feel the same now as then

Give me the key so my mind won’t bend

Take your love as you find her

Give her everything that you can

It’s never a part you will understand



So I met an old timer

Gave me things that I need you know
Track Name: Do You Believe?
And so it started here

She sat upon me

And said I’m yours to tame

Oh brother have no fear

She whispered softly

And so began her game



You are all I want she said

You are all I want she said



I move my mouth to speak

But there is only

The rattle of my lungs

As out of night she creeps

To set upon me

And steal away my tongue



You are all I want she said

You are all I want she said



Do you believe

In what you see

You don’t see me

But you believe

Well tell me brother what does that mean
Track Name: The Glue
Fall apart on my own

I’m pullin’ pieces of puzzles

From my mind

Feel like letting go

Then you throw me a life-line

But why, oh I don’t know

Feel like letting go



Lost my heart you see

Cut my hair and split my tree

Took all the broken parts of you

And I fixed them with The Glue
