"War On Drugs"

"War On Drugs"



She likes to sleep with the radio on
So she can dream of her favorite song
The one that no one has ever sung since she was small

She'll never know that she made it up
She had a soul and we ate it up
Thrown away like a paper cup
The music falls

The only flaw in her detailed plan
Is where she wins back the love of her man
Everyone knows that he's never coming back

He took her heart and she took his name
He couldn't stand taking all the blame
He left her only with guilt and shame and then she cracked

Won't it be dull when we rid ourselves
Of all these demons haunting us
To keep us company

In the dream I refuse to have
She falls asleep in a lukewarm bath
We're left to deal with the aftermath again

On behalf of humanity
I will fight for your sanity
How profound such profanity can be

Won't it be dull when we rid ourselves
Of all these demons haunting us
To keep us company

Won't it be odd to be happy like we
Always thought we're supposed to feel
But never seem to be

Near where I live there's a viaduct
Where people jump when they're out of luck
Raining down on the cars and trucks below

They've put a net there to catch their fall
Like it'll stop anyone at all
What they don't know is when nature calls, you go

They say that Jesus and mental health
Are just for those who can help themselves
But what good is that when you live in hell on earth?

From the very fear that makes you want to die
Is just the same as what keeps you alive
It's way more trouble than some suicide is worth

Won't it be dull when we rid ourselves
Of all these demons haunting us
To keep us company

Won't it be odd to be happy like we
Always thought we're supposed to feel
But never seem to be

Hard to admit I fought the war on drugs
My hands were tied and the phone was bugged
Another died and the world just shrugged it off

"Watching The Northern Lights"

"Watching The Northern Lights"



Floating like a dream cloud above the lake
Drifting in and out of sight
Forty miles above us
Watching the Northern Lights

Watching the Northern Lights
Watching the Northern Lights
Watching the Northern Lights

In the true northern darkness
Far from the sleeping towns
We lay there in silence
Young and free, half asleep, spellbound

We were watching the Northern Lights
Watching the Northern Lights
Watching the Northern Lights

In my mind after all this time
The memory is still clear
All I find I leave behind
The song is my souvenir

Watching the Northern Lights
Watching the Northern Lights
Watching the Northern Lights
Watching the Northern Lights

"What A Good Boy"

"What A Good Boy"


When I was born, they looked at me and said
what a good boy, what a smart boy, what a strong boy.
And when you were born, they looked at you and said,
what a good girl, what a smart girl, what a pretty girl.

We've got these chains that hang around our necks,
people want to strangle us with them before we take our first breath.
Afraid of change, afraid of staying the same,
when temptation calls, we just look away.

[Chorus]
This name is the hairshirt I wear,
and this hairshirt is woven from your brown hair.
This song is the cross that I bear,
bear it with me, bear with me, bear with me,
be with me tonight,
I know that it isn't right, but be with me tonight.

I go to school, I write exams,
if I pass, if I fail, if I drop out,
does anyone give a damn?
And if they do, they'll soon forget 'cause it won't take much for me
to show my life ain't over yet.
I wake up scared, I wake up strange.
I wake up wondering if anything in my life is ever going to change.
I wake up scared, I wake up strange
and everything around me stays the same.

[Chorus]

I couldn't tell you that I was wrong,
chickened out, grabbed a pen and paper, sat down and I wrote this song.
I couldn't tell you that you were right,
so instead I looked in the mirror,
watched TV, laid awake all night.

We've got these chains, hang 'round our necks,
people want to strangle us with them before we take our first breath.
Afraid of change, afraid of staying the same when temptation calls ...

[Chorus]

When I was born, they looked at me and said;
What a good boy, what a smart boy, what a strong boy.
And when you were born, they looked at you and said;
what a good girl, what a smart girl, what a pretty girl, hey

"What A Wild Tune"

"What A Wild Tune"



Last night I heard the wolves,
last night I heard the wolves,
last night I heard the wolves,
they were howling at the moon,
howling at the moon,
howling at the moon.
What a wild tune, they were howling at the moon.

Last night I heard the breeze,
last night I heard the breeze,
last night I heard the breeze it was singing through the trees.

Then I heard some frogs,
then I heard some frogs,
then I heard some frogs they were croaking on a logs.

There's music in the air,
there's music in the air,
there's music in the air,
and the air is everywhere.

Last night I heard the wolves,
last night I heard the wolves,
last night I heard the wolves, they were howling at the moon.
Howling at the moon,
howling at the moon.
What a wild tune, they were howling at the moon.

"When I Fall"

"When I Fall"


I look straight in the window, try not to look below
Pretend I'm not up here, try counting sheep
But the sheep seem to shower off this office tower
Nine-point-eight straight down I can't stop my knees

[Chorus]
I wish I could fly
From this building
From this wall
And if I should try
Would you catch me if I fall?

My hands clench the squeegee, my secular rosary
Hang on to your wallet, hang on to your rings
Can't look below me, or something might throw me
Curse at the windstorms that October brings

I look in the boardroom; a modern pharaoh's tomb
I'd gladly swap places, if they care to dive
They're lined up at the window, peer down into limbo
They're frightened of jumping, in case they survive

I wish I could step from this scaffold
Onto soft green pastures, shopping malls, or bed
With my family and my pastor and my grandfather who's Dead

Look straight in the mirror, watch it come clearer
I look like a painter, behind all the grease
But paintings creating, and I'm just erasing
A crystal-clear canvas is my masterpiece

[Chorus]

"When You Dream"

"When You Dream"



With life just begun, my sleeping new son
has eyes that roll back in his head
They flutter and dart, he slows down his heart
and pictures a world past his bed
It's hard to believe
As I watch you breathe
Your mind drifts and weaves

When you dream,
what do you dream about?
When you dream,
what do you dream about?
Do you dream about
music or mathematics
or planets too far for the eye?
Do you dream about
Jesus or quantum mechanics
or angels who sing lullabies?

His fontanelle pulses with lives that he's lived
With memories he'll learn to ignore
And when it is closed, he already knows
he's forgotten all he knew before
But when sleep sets in
history begins
But the future will win

When you dream,
what do you dream about?
When you dream,
what do you dream about?
Are they colour or black and white,
Yiddish or English
or languages not yet conceived?
Are they silent or boisterous?
Do you hear noises just
loud enough to be perceived?
Do you hear Del Shannon's "Runaway" playing
on transistor radio waves?
With so little experience,
your mind not yet cognizant
Are you wise beyond your few days?
When you dream,
what do you dream about?
When you dream,
what do you dream about?

"Who Knew?"

"Who Knew?"



I could have changed my mind, but tried to change you
What do I have to do, what do I have to do?
I should have seen it coming, should have seen it through
What do I have to do, what do I have to do?

Who knew, did you have a clue?
That we'd be the ones to stand in the sun
Who knew, what we could do?
Carved out our names, close to the flame

I tried to land, I tried my hand at something new
What do I have to do, what do I have to do?
I'd rather turn away than sit and wait my turn
Will you return, will you return?

Who knew, a lot to prove
Without a doubt, dig our way out
Who knew, never talked it through
Remember the day, parting ways

How did I get enrolled?
Played my part, played along
With it all, all to lose
Here I stand, by you

Who knew, the best we could do
Let out the door, nothin' said nothin' more
Who knew, left with no clue
We were the ones to stand in the sun (We were the ones)
We were the ones to stand in the sun (We were the ones)
We were the ones to stand in the sun

"Who Needs Sleep?"

"Who Needs Sleep?"


Now I lay me down not to sleep
I just get tangled in the sheets
I swim in sweat three inches deep
I just lay back and claim defeat

Chapter read and lesson learned
I turned the lights off while she burned
So while she's three hundred degrees
I throw the sheets off and I freeze

Lids down, I count sheep
I count heartbeats
The only thing that counts is
that I won't sleep
I countdown, I look around

Who needs sleep?
well you're never gonna get it
Who needs sleep?
tell me what's that for
Who needs sleep?
be happy with what you're getting
There's a guy who's been awake
since the Second World War

My hands are locked up tight in fists
My mind is racing, filled with lists
of things to do and things I've done
Another sleepless night's begun

Lids down, I count sheep
I count heartbeats
The only thing that counts is
that I won't sleep
I countdown, I look around

Who needs sleep?
well you're never gonna get it
Who needs sleep?
tell me what's that for
Who needs sleep?
be happy with what you're getting
There's a guy who's been awake
since the Second World War

Who needs sleep?
well you're never gonna get it
Who needs sleep?
tell me what's that for
Who needs sleep?
be happy with what you're getting
There's a guy who's been awake
since the Second World War

There's so much joy in life,
so many pleasures all around
But the pleasure of insomnia
is one I've never found
With all life has to offer,
there's so much to be enjoyed
But the pleasures of insomnia
are ones I can't avoid

Lids down, I count sheep
I count heartbeats
The only thing that counts is
that I won't sleep
I countdown, I look around

Hala Hala Hala

Who needs sleep?
well you're never gonna get it
Who needs sleep?
tell me what's that for
Who needs sleep?
be happy with what you're getting
There's a guy who's been awake
since the Second World War

[Repeat]

"Wind It Up"

"Wind It Up"



Stop, drop and roll and I will tell you where I'm coming from
You've done a lot of yelling pointed at my eardrum
I'll offer all of me that you can lay your eyes on
I'll get right back to you once I get my disguise on

Hearts on fire, you'll learn
End up with heartburn

Wind me up, my dear
Had it up to here
Wind it up

I can't believe that you'd believe that I would fake it
Wait - unless you count the things I said when we were naked
Run, run away from everything we'd ever hoped for
I can't believe that this is what people elope for

Throw your sticks and stones
Throw your mobile phone

Wind me up, my dear
Had it up to here
Wind it up

If you are leaving then I wish you luck
I hope someone can make your heart warm
I was a baby when I learned to suck
But you have raised it to an art form

Yes I'm out of line
But you're out of your mind

Wind me up, my dear
Had it up to here
Wind me up, my dear
Had it up to here
Wind it up

"Wishing"

"Wishing"



I wish I could speak with my dog
I wish I could speak with my dog
I wish I could speak with my dog
Cause right now it's just a monologue

I wish I could walk on a cloud
I wish I could walk on a cloud
I wish I could walk on a cloud
I sure wish could walkin' was aloud

I wish every wish would come true
I wish every wish would come true
I wish every wish would come true
Cause it sure feels good when they do
