Leadbelt

I suppose that innocence could hold you back
But I'll be sad when I get older
Like a body, you'll float to the top
With all the ageing on your shoulders

So climb that ladder slowly
'Cause I don't want to reach the top right now
Tie that leadbelt around your waist and mine
We'll do fine just hanging around for a while

Sometimes things just work out someway
Always things just work out this way
Sometimes things just work out someway
This way things just work out sometimes

Sometimes things just work out sometimes

 

Seeing Stars

I saw a star
It unleashed all the madness
Brought about all my sadness
I'd travel far to see it again

Can we still be here
Just the two of us alone
Can we still stay
And watch the others come undone

I can feel my nights
Are getting colder
I've got to lose
This chip on my shoulder

I saw a star
And I'd travel far to see it again

I saw a star, I saw a star

 

Each To Their Own

I could walk with you for days
And still not get any further down this road
The way I act sometimes
Reminds me of the way I don't want to be

I could talk to you for days
Of all the different ways to get what you want
But that would all mean nothing
Because you'll always want for something

So please shout me down
'Cause I don't know it all

I could talk to you for days
And tell you things that no one else knows
I'd leave no stone unturned
The bottom line when the candle burns out

So don't shout me down
When I don't show it all

Dog

Take me in and keep me warm
Roll me over, call me yours
Just be there in the morning

You don't need me on a leash
I'll come back each time you need me
I'll be there in the morning
I'll be there in the morning

Walk me around
Walk on me, I'll still come back to you
When you call, I'll take a backseat anytime

If we in the movies you'd make feel
Like I'm the star of every scene
And it would be the best part
That I'd ever played

But I drop by just to watch you act
'Cause every action just attracts me onto you,
Please don't underestimate that when I see you
The things you make me say

I don't want to sleep outside
Sleep all day and sleep at night
I wanna play someone
When you say something
You make feel like someone
You make feel like someone
You make feel like someone
I wanna feel like someone

Walk me around
Walk on me, I'll still come back to you
When you call, I'll take the backseat anytime
Just walk me around
Walk on me, I'll still come back to you
When you call, I'll take the backseat anytime

 

Clowns Hands

I see things inside the puddles no-one else sees
Got they don't got glasses like me, glasses like me

I saw white hands with no bodies float down the hall
When I was small
They can't get me, they can't me

So now I'm caught ___ a personal _____
___________________
Now I know it's safe to be a dreamer
I'm safe from all the nightmares now
She's taken all the bad dreams out

Seen the crazy

Stung by the bees, drowned in the seas
All of the dreams

Worry about things, but it won't get me

 

Poke My Side

Before this draft blows back on me
I'm starting to fade out,
I wanna know if I'm as good as I feel
Keep one eye open for me, I'm feeling the fear
Just poke my side and make me laugh 'til I scream

Just make me think of something good...
Cos I'm thinking all the wrong thing and not what I should
So keeps your eyes open for me...
And poke my side and make me laugh 'til I scream

Before this draught blows back on me
I'm starting to fade out,
I wanna know if I'm as young as I feel
Keep one eye open for me, I'm feeling the fear
Just poke my side and make me laugh 'til I scream

 

Send That Monkey To Mars

Take back your protein pills
Cause I didn't think that time shoved so quick
And your not like him, no
You're not like anyone
Cardboard cut-out, carbon copied
Tiny speck on my memory

Damn you all, damn you all
I don't care

 

Fond Memories Of New York

Imagine dusty old roads and all McDonalds with middle-age waitresses
Coffee black as the oil that falls off ___ trailers at a truck stop
Watching the sunrise, looking into your eyes
Watching our dreams, as they go by

I pictured all of the things that Tom and Frankie told me about the ___
Wanna see for myself now, but I'm afraid it's gonna be a let down
Watching the sunrise, looking into your eyes
Watching the cars as, they go by

If I could have it my own way we'd be shining brighter than the headlights
All the billboards on Broadway would be saying we'll always be together
Watching the sunrise, looking into your eyes
Watching our dreams, as they go by

 

The Bits (That Float Around When You Close Your Eyes)

There's no one yet to disappear
So there's some degree of maybe
Had a couple of smokes
I turned off the lights
And watched the bits that float around when I close my eyes

And you know the way things happen
They just come and go, then gone

There'll be bits you don't like
Some we won't see
But can I be the bits that you see?
Can I be the bits that you see?

Can I be the bits that you just wanna see?
