Diana The Moon

What do you think about him, working man
Best friend doesn't know him, he's toasting you
Still haven't met the live friend, discoman
Didn't get counselling today, in the rain

Reaching out for my hand, my nowhereman
Where'd your devils go to, passing call
Give a look through (the) keyhole, well I can't tell
Dare to get quiet, at the handle

How hip is Venus, she was a star then
How hip is Venus, hip is Venus?

 

Magnet Force

Life seems to speed up every day
What if you can't take the pace
The subject rolls down his face,
In Eden, there'll be sport in the
Garden of Eden for milk that he didn't spill,
They blame him even still

I'm yours, what's mine is yours
Yours my life is yours

Faith he asks for more than he gets
Out in his Sunday best,
Riding the wave of a crest
Corners cutting corners for jammy dodgers,
His hand's never out of the till,
He's always footing the bill,

I'm yours, what's mine is yours
Yours my life is yours

Don't exert your magnet force,
Wasted upon me, magnet force
Not into your pedigree
Magnet force,
Wasted upon me, magnet force
Magnets don't work on me

Life seems to speed up every day
What if you can't take the pace
The rats in their fucking rat race escape
He's the artist planning escape
The dreamer when he's asleep
The little boy who will mess up the sheets

But I'm yours -- not me

 

Mackerel Sky High

It don't matter
My horse torn in tatters
Who are you trying to be?
I said it's not looking upward
You kicked me in the gutter
Do I owe you an apology?

'Cause now I got this middle reeking in my veins
And now I got the only friend who whispers great and argues men
And now I got this middle keeping me in check
Of who he said he don't keep getting well

Why don't you love me just the same?
You never called my name
Oh why don't you hate me just the same?
You never called my name

It won't matter
My horse torn in tatters
Who are you trying to keep?

Did you ever see sky, mackerel high?
Did you ever see sky, mackerel high?
Now I got this middle keeping me in check
Of who he said he don't keep getting well

 

Subside

You must not be listening
There's still toilet slogans
But I can't hear the accent
'Cos there's no difference
And what kind of soap then
Cleans guilty conscience
Put up for to long with all your nonsense -

We're anchored in ice just formed as we subside,
And rancour rises up alright -
You must not be listening
'Cos you're too stubborn
Where's left to annex
And have designs on
I hope it's somewhere
Somewhere really barren,
And your streams don't flow there
And has no religion

But anchored in ice just formed as we subside,
And rancour rises up alright

 

Daktari

Instrumental

 

Stigmata Errata

I'm not one to be outdone
I'm ten feet from your house
Why can't you stand where I'll see you
I'm not a pawn for anyone
'Cos I hate all that stuff
Why can't you be where you can be you
And stop fooling around -
I'm trying to listen to that sound
Why can't you read me like you used to

You're stigmata errata
Goodnight Sam, I've put everyone to bed
Hello Sam, I've put everyone to bed

 

How To Have More Fun

Sometimes you're unreal
Telling me how I feel
When I'm turned up way too loud
You say that I'm too proud
Ever felt like chucking it all?
I'll venture down the hall
But something's holding me
I think I could head butt a tree

Eyes down for a full house
Three throws is all you're allowed
But now I got a new friend
She tells me everything,
But how to have more fun

 

Where's My Pony?

With satchel and candle in my hand
It makes me try again
Nothing's untoward
Why can't you

I've seen it all before
this river takes it's course
And it will flow again
But nothing's untoward
Just out of fuel

We're sated again my friend
Sated again, but lost
Sated again my friend
Am I the only one to see that?

This faraway place not your face
That I will see again
Halter and harness sores
I need more!
We travelled round a bit
Just for kicks
We shall go again
When nothing's untoward
But I'm unsure

 

Bruise

When my body awakes up
Can we make up
I want you back
Cause I need someone
Just to practice on
I don't get that much
And now it's alright
Feeling downright
Take solace in his punishment
We'll turn a new leaf
And get some relief
Don't look, don't touch

And I got hurt
I was your crutch
You lean on everything
Don't know about you
But I'm not tired of
(To) the circle and it's spin

In a firing line you don't sit and moan
Electricity won't spark when it's cold
These peaks we climb
Stand everything I own
What I own, what I own

 

Scarper

In social indecision, was it all worth while?
Political division, live on the word of mouth

We're crying and savouring, the writing's on the right
Build the build a big light, build the building fight

Words cannot fail these eyes running over
And words hurt me not, though you're sorry, don't be

Barely got the time to even try
Barely got the time I'm so tired

Barely got the time, barely got the time
Barely got the time to even try
Barely got the time we're so tired

 

Secret Saviour

Jesus just can't work this way
Let's put it back again
When will you come down?

I got to think this through
So my heart feels true
When will you come down?

Everybody's talking now about a secret saviour
Eyes down looking around for another leader

-- more --

 

Merry Hell

I understand you got the job
I understand you chose to follow
Into the desert and if 2 an' 2 reach five
We'll have caught a fish to fry

Take me to war, take me to war

Wheels turn and bridges burn
It's Jimmy's brand of Che Guevara
His letters home tell regulation Bob Hope jokes
But the air is too thick to smoke

Take me to war, take me to war

Haven't got no words to say,
For Jimmy's brand was shot today
Must be a dream
And if 1 and 1 reach three
We'll be back in time for tea
Take me to your war and bury me in war
