"Waterhole (Expresso Bongo)"

"Waterhole (Expresso Bongo)"


When the taxis gather in mock Solemnity
Funeral hearses court the death of virginity
Was it paradise lost or paradise found?
Did we gain respect or were we holding ground?
You had found true love, or so you believed
And the wideboys tattooed your hearts upon their sleeves
So when you think it's time to go
When you think it's time to go
Don't be surprised, the heroes never show

And the patter merchants selling false impressions
Tipping eyes at the waitress with American expressions
Tie angels to the bar with sweet Martini's and their charms
They're lying on every word and every arm
They're turning down their noses to the best lines
And the cheap wines

And the wideboys
They wear their lovebites for their crimes

"Whatever Is Wrong With You"

"Whatever Is Wrong With You"


We need to talk..
About the way you've been behaving
We need to talk..
About the Christmas lights in your clothes
We need to talk..
About the stranger in the kitchen
We need to talk..
About the scissors and the silver foil
I thank God..
You're so fabulously..
Odd

Whatever is wrong with you?
Whatever is wrong with you?
Whatever is wrong with you?
Is so right for me

We need to talk..
About the wedding cake, and the wet suit
We need to talk..
About the policeman down the hall
You're truly strange
But it wouldn't do for us all to be the same

Whatever is wrong with you?
Whatever is wrong with you?
Whatever is wrong with you?
Is so right for me
Just right for me

"When I Meet God"

"When I Meet God"


And if the bottle's no solution
Why does it feel so warm
And if that girl is no solution
Why did she feel so warm
And if to feel is no solution
Why do I feel
Why do I feel so tired
Why do I feel so broken
Why do I feel so outside
Why do I seem so blind
I'm so sick of feeling
It's ruined my life
If living rough is no solution
Why does it ease my mind
If looking back is no solution
Why are we all
Nothing but children
Children inside

Why do the Gods
Sit back and watch
So many lost
What kind of mother
Leaves a child in the traffic
Turning tricks in the dark
What kind of God?

I crawled around inside myself
It was a long way down
It was a mine and it was mine
And in the darkness
I saw a perfect mirror
Floating in space

When I meet God
I'm going to ask her
What makes her cry
What makes her laugh
Is she just stars and indigo gas
Does she know why
Love has no end
But it's dark-angel friend
Tearing women and men
Slowly apart

Stain
Don't do that
Scream
Don't do that
Fail
Never do that
Never do that
I want to go out
Don't do that
I want an adventure
Just stay..
I want
Just stay in
I want to make love

And if the bottle's no solution
Why does it feel so warm
And if looking back is no solution
Why are we all just children inside
And if to feel is no solution
Why does the whole damn world feel so broken
So outside and out-of-sorts

A perfect mirror
Floating in space
Waves and numbers
But oh, such beautiful numbers
And oh, such waves..

"White Feather"

"White Feather"


When I hit the streets back in '81
Found a heart in the gutter and a poet's crown
I felt barbed wire kisses and icicle tears
Where have I been for all these years?
I saw political intrigue, political lies
Gonna wipe those smiles of self-satisfaction from their eyes

I will wear your white feather
I will carry your white flag
I will swear I have no nation
But I'm proud to own my heart
I will wear your white feather
I will carry your white flag
I will swear I have no nation
But I'm proud to own my heart
My heart, this is my heart

We don't need no uniforms, we have no disguise
Divided we stand, together we'll rise

We will wear your white feather
We will carry your white flag
We will swear we have no nations
But we're proud to own our hearts
We will wear your white feather
We will carry your white flag
We will swear we have no nations
But we're proud to own our hearts
These are our hearts
These are our hearts
You can't take away our hearts
You can't steal our hearts away
I can't walk away
No more

"White Russian"

"White Russian"


Where do we go from here?
Where do we go from here, where do we go from here
Where do we go from here, where do we go from here
They boarded up the synagogues, Uzis on a street corner
You can't take a photograph of Uzis on a street corner
The DJ resigned today they wouldn't let him have his say
Surface scratched where the needles play, Uzis on a street corner

Where do we go from here

Terror in Rue de St. Denis, murder on the periphery
Someone else in someone else's pocket
Christ knows I don't know how to stop it
Poppies at the cenotaph, the cynics can't afford to laugh
I heard in on the telegraph there's Uzis on a street corner

Where do we go from here, where do we go from here

The more I see, the more I hear, the more I find fewer answers
I close my mind, I shout it out but you know it's getting harder
To calm down, to reason out, to come to terms with what it's all about
I'm uptight, can't sleep at night, I can't pretend everything's all right
My ideals, my sanity, they seem to be deserting me
But to stand up and fight I know we have six million reasons

They're burning down the synagogues, Uzis on a street corner
The heralds of the holocaust, Uzis on a street corner
The silence never louder than now, how quickly we forgot our vows
This resurrection we can't allow, Uzis on a street corner

Where do we go from here, where do we go from here

We buy fresh bagels from the corner store
Where swastikas are spat from aerosols
I sit in the bar sipping iced White Russian
Trying to score but nobody's pushing
And everyone looks at everyone's faces
Searching for signs and praying for traces of a conscience in residence
Are we sitting on a barbed wire fence
Racing the clouds home, racing the clouds home

We place our faith in human rights
In the paper wars that tie the red tape tight
I know that I would rather be out of this conspiracy
In the gulags and internment camps frozen faces in nameless ranks
I know that they would rather be standing here besides me
Racing the clouds home, racing the clouds home

You can shut your eyes, you can hide it away it's gonna come back another day
Racing the clouds home, are we racing the clouds home
Racing the clouds home

"Woke Up"

"Woke Up"


Woke up in a city that doesn't sleep
Full of rain
You woke me up

Woke up in a city down by the sea
Like a dream
You woke me up

I woke up in a city full of snow
And history and beauty and Christmas-lights and cold
With angels that come when all is lost
In golden light at dead of night
They take you home
And I woke up
I woke up

Woke up in a city that doesn't sleep
You woke me up, You woke me up, You woke me up

And I woke up in a city by the sea
You woke me up, You woke me up, You woke me up

You woke me up

I woke up in a city full of rain
The world had stopped
I woke up to feel no pain
Day from night
Anti-gravity and light
It's so clear, just what I'm doing here

The blinding obvious is what you showed to me.

"Wrapped Up In Time"

"Wrapped Up In Time"


Things come wrapped up in time
Like the past in a present
Or the perfect line in a song

They take their time
And when they're gone
They take their time with them

And you can't have them back
Because the time for them has gone
And their time has gone with them

The time for them has gone.

There's an echo of them
An echo of the time they were wrapped in
Sweet or bitter in the memory
But an echo is all, all I can reach now

An echo of you
An echo of you
An echo of you in your time

Still echoing
Like a star in the sky
Like a star in the sky above me

And the story of it's life
Told backwards down this rod of light
But at it's beginning..
Long extinct.

"You Don't Need Anyone"

"You Don't Need Anyone"


I saw you there last night
In the latest place
You were taking in the scenery
Hungry for a new face
Seems what I said to you
Didn't change your mind
You could open your eyes, realise
You don't need anyone
Who's always on the phone
You don't need anyone
Who won't leave you alone
You don't need anyone
Who'd want you to cut him a key
You don't need anyone

Out on the streets today
In the clothes you bought
And your glossy picture pages
Full of other people's thoughts
Will you just wander along
Live your life this way
'Till some magazine shows you what to do

You don't need anyone
Who's always on the phone
You don't need anyone
Who won't leave you alone
To fill up the holes in your life
To tell you what you're needing
And make you do what you don't like

You don't need anyone
To show you where to go
And turn you into somebody
You wouldn't even want to know
You don't need anyone
As far as I can see
You don't need anyone
But Me

"You're Gone"

"You're Gone"


You're gone. As suddenly as you came to me
Like nightfall followed dawn without a day between
You're gone and suddenly I can't see
I'm in the shadow of you
I'm in the shadow of you
I can see you in my minds rose-tinted eye..
Somewhere you're drifting by
Your heels rolling sparks on the lucky street

While here am I, left behind
Stunned and blind
But I can see you from here
I can see you so clear

You are the light
You are the light
You have the day
I have the night
But we have the early hours together

You're gone, and heaven cries.
A thunderstorm breaks from the northern sky
Chasing you back to the daily grind

You're gone. And where am I?
A haunted life
The ghost of your laughter
The half-empty glass
The half-empty glass

And I wait
'til midnight tolls
Two souls almost touching in the dark
I'll be allright

You are the light
You are the light
You have the day
I have the night
But we have the early hours
We have the early hours
We have the early hours together
