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

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…

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

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

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

Winterlude 01:17

Often Wonder 03:55
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
8.
All I Need 02:26
Simple life for me It’s all I need It’s all I need
9.
Julie-Anne 04:07
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

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
11.
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
12.
The Glue 01:23
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
