Well, hey, how's tricks man?
Think I've seen you before
Blank blank to that

You looked a lot older
You been working out
What's wrong with that?

Well he came back and he
Came a-marching in
Shot shot to that

You found a good reason
Well, do it for the money
What's wrong with that?

Control your bad side
Into battle we go down
Hold the line
You'll survive
Dead wrong

So please stop talking and
Start puckering up
My ears are blank

It's a special occasion
So do it for the money
Can't go wrong with that

Explode or capsize
But find my going
If you're down
Toe the line
You'll survive

. . .



I been lost and now I found my way
Take me down and safe
Show me the way

Take me places that I want to stay
Here's to today
Here's to today

I been knocked but now I'm on my feet
Caught a lineup
Whenever I get in your steep

Take me places that I know from sleep
Let me sleep
Let me sleep

Hey now
I'm fadin' out
Keep the light on
Turn it up

Hey now
I'm fallin' down, down
Keep the light on
Turn it up

I don't care to live for friends, you say
Cost a fortune
Then they go and leave anyway

Wake me tenderly and leave me to lay
Let me sleep
Let me sleep

Hey now
And fade out
Keep the light on
Turn it up

Hey now
And fall down, down
Keep the light on
Turn it up

Here's to today
Here's to today
Here's to today

. . .



Hello

Come in and get yourself something to drink
And tell me something I don't know about you
I'll tell you something 'bout me

Does it feel right
Like penetrating insight
Or blinded by the cuckoo with the hiccups
It's tricky to decide

I think I'm coming round, I'm seeing through the smoke
I think I'm coming round, I'm feeling signs of hope
Some water, some whiskey, some cigarettes or dope
I think I'm coming round, can you help me up to cope?

(Ooh, yeah yeah)
(Ooh, yeah yeah)
(Ooh, yeah yeah)
(Ooh, yeah yeah)

We're trapped in
Undergoing modernist sins
The probe cannot be driven through the kneecap
The kneecap will prevail here

So keep trying, prevent yourself from crying
You're shaking hyperventilated mish-mash
Made entirely out of bones

I think I'm coming round, I'm seeing through the smoke
I think I'm coming round, I'm feeling signs of hope
Some water, some whiskey, some cigarettes or dope
I think I'm coming round, can you help me up to cope?

I've been thinking one thing but doing something else in a daze, yeah
I'm trying to keep from getting uptight
I'm trying to keep from getting uptight

I've been thinking one thing but doing something else in a daze, yeah
I'm trying to keep from getting uptight
I'm trying to keep from getting uptight

The peace pipe
Is flying round the bat's head
The hippies will be camping out tonight (Kum bye ah, my lord)
Singing Hari Kari (Adikhari)

And right now it's cooking up a storm now
It's intravenous terror en masse
Your spaceship has arrived (please get in)

I've been thinking one thing but doing something else in a daze, yeah
I'm trying to keep from getting uptight
I'm trying to keep from getting uptight

I've been thinking one thing but doing something else in a daze, yeah
I'm trying to keep from getting uptight
I'm trying to keep from getting uptight

I've been thinking one thing but doing something else in a daze, yeah
I'm trying to keep from getting uptight

The first words that came could've been more inspired
You must be hungry or tired or frozen
So put up your feet, throw some coal on the fire
And weave us a tale of delight

So we sit in our gun and we wait for our turn
We'll be waiting all of the night
So we sit in our gun and we wait for our turn
We'll be waiting all of our lives

We're all to blame
We hide away
Let's take the sand from this bottomless pit
It's hell to pay
So run away
Destroy on command all who came and then quit

It's been carefully planned by the ones you won't see
Send out the monkeys, they come out of the bushes
To piss in the punch and then smash up the decks
It's your party, we're all obliged

So we sit in our gun and we wait for our turn
I think you hurt him, there's blood on the floor
So we sit in our gun, can I ask what you're on?
If you made it there's hope for us all

We're all to blame
We hide away
Let's take the sand from this bottomless pit
There's hell to pay
So run away
Destroy on command all who came and then quit
You're all the same
So hide away

. . .



Red old eyes, now where you from
You catch me every day
Colours hide not even song
It's all been washed away

Sun stop going down
Come out again
Stop fading out
Awake again

Sun stop going down
Stop going down

Blues old face, you finally come around
And talking in your sleep
Buried secrets and fiery showdowns
Lost days inbetween

It's all the same
Let it go before it gets too late
Don't play our game

Sun stop going down
Come out again
Stop fading out
Awake again

Sun stop going down
Stop going down

Sun is going down
Come out again
Don't feel so proud
Get straight again

Sun stop going down
Stop going down

It's all the same
Let it go before it gets too late
Don't play our game

Sun stop going down
Come out again
Stop fading out
Awake again

Sun stop going down
Stop going down

Sun is going down
Come out again
Don't feel so proud
Get straight again

Sun stop going down
Stop going down

Sun stop going down
Come out again
Stop fading out
Awake again

Sun stop going down
Stop going down

Sun is going down
Come out again
Don't feel so proud
Get straight again

Sun stop going down

. . .



Bust up
No trust
Getting along
Best get clean, get on

She's gone
I'm gone
Ruff stuff
Something's wrong
Best get clean, get on

I'm spending all her money
On the best that I can buy

So I'm locked up
Trussed up
Shackles on
Best get clean for her

Jittery soup
Stuffed turkey
Cold cop
Best get clean for her

I'm hot and feeling funny
I'm sweating to get dry

Darling (come back!)
I've given up fags and drugs now baby
Darling (come back!)
I've had enough of the ruff stuff, baby
Darling (come back!)
Been hangin' round in smack bogs, baby
Darling (come back!)
I've given up fags and drugs now baby

Leave your fever, breather
Get off
Get off
Get on

Feeling weak
Downbeat two weeks of two
Need help for her

I'm sick with paranoia
It's the most that I can do

Hot meal
Warm bath
On my feet
Got it beat for you

Take a look
Early nights
Good books
Cook and clean for you

So go and call your mother
'Cause she's been using too

Darling (come back!)
I've given up fags and drugs now baby
Darling (come back!)
I've had enough of the ruff stuff, baby
Darling (come back!)
Been hangin' round in smack bogs, baby
Darling (come back!)

. . .



Do you ever stop and wonder
Where you'd be without her?

You listened, you listened, you listened
To what she said to you

The sound of sounds ain't lightning

The whisper, the promise, the solace
Of where you're lead to
Yeah

The sound of sounds ain't lightning
Yeah, yeah

The sound of sounds ain't lightning

Have you forgotten who you are?
(Have you forgotten who you are?)
Have you forgotten who you are?
(Have you forgotten who you are?)

Could you ever stop and wonder
Could you live without her?

The sound of sounds ain't lightning
Yeah, yeah

The sound of sounds ain't lightning
Yeah

The sound of sounds ain't lightning
Yeah, yeah
(The sound of sounds ain't lightning)

From the bed to the car
Let us stick to you now and then
Move on, move on

Out of school, into home
Let us swallow you whole
Or just hold on, hold on

We were close
Army dub
Not as quick as you run, you run
You run, you run

Brand new shirt
Knackered shoes
Coffee made, office blues
And then run on, run on

Well, who's gonna take it like this?
No way
You are, you are
You are, you are, you are

Who's gonna take it like this?
No way
You are, you are
You are, you are, you are

The one-armed man
The one-armed man
The one-armed man

The one-armed man
The one-armed man
The one-armed man

Who's gonna take it like this?
No way
Who's gonna take it like this?
No way

From the bed, in the car
Let us shower your heart
And then move on, move on

It's the one fatal flaw
Let us swallow you all, you all
You all, you all

We were close
Army dub
Not as quick as you run, you run
You run, you run

Who's gonna take it like this?
No way
Who's gonna take it like this?
No way
I said, you are, you are
You are, you are, you are

Who's gonna take it like this?
No way
I said, you are, you are
You are, you are, you are

(Who's gonna take it like this?
No way
Who's gonna take it like this?
No way
Who's gonna take it like this?
No way)

You are, you are

Chinese symbols on his robe
Never gonna match up with that smile
He's wearing mostly black and gold
It's been twelve days
The longest for a while

He's been fortunate
He can't tell a lie
Redheads, blondes, brunettes
They all fall for his lines

He's been king now for so long
His days are numbered
Times have changed, so move along
The dream is over

Draped across Egyptian linen
Even Cleopatra casts an eye
A gossamer see-through zipped up tracksuit
Champagne bottle, ten o'clock on fire

He's been fortunate
He cannot deny
Jacuzzi baronet
With soap suds in his eyes

He's been king now for so long
His days are numbered
Times have changed, so move along
The dream is over

He's been king now for so long
His days are numbered
Times have changed, so move along
The dream is over

We've been waiting for so long

. . .



We'll return to the ocean
Ride the tide again
Taste the water, jump right in
And try to swim

So ping one down
Let it sink
Sink on down
Like heavy metal

We should take off the lotion
Let the sun shine in
Admire the holes with shaded eyes
And fry again

And ping one down
Let it sink
Sink on down
Like heavy metal

Ping one down
Let it sink
Don't ponce around
Like poor old men

Colour clean
This sterile scene
Move as we please
No use in complaining

Purify now
Saints alive
We're all deprived
Be careful what you're saying

We've been on a safari
Just collecting skin
Head to toe in camouflage
But high again

So ping one down
And let it sink
Sink on down
Like heavy metal

Colour clean
This sterile scene
Move as we please
No use in complaining

Purify now
Saints alive
We're all deprived
Be careful what you're saying

Careful what you're saying

. . .



Nightfall follows the day
You fight with me
Fill me with patience
I was so brave once
You rescued me
Got in my way

A thousand times
Dumbfounded lies
In tidy lines
Let blood flood the town

Thoughts that dwell
On how we fell
That time will tell
A bedside story of

We've heard it before
Unsettled sleep
When will it all stop?
I hear a pin drop
You've answered me
Loud and clear

So know your fate
The time and date
We escalate
We fall on holy ground

Thoughts that dwell
On how we fell
That time will tell
A bedside story of

I'm here
Leave me to wait near
You recognise me
Get in my way, dear
The price to pay, dear
You'll recognise me
I'll be laying

Where your golden light
Where your golden light

A thousand times
In tidy lines
Let blood flood the town

Thoughts that dwell
On how we fell
That time will tell

. . .



Come and fight back
Need some help here
Bail us out
In up to our necks
Drenching never stops
Fish us out

There's a light there to steer it
A fear that is peeling
And soaking us up
Into a slow-motion freezer
Division is leaving
Everything stops

It's overexposure
Stop running off on me
It's overexposure
Stop running off

Come and fight back
Need some help here
Bail us out
In up to our necks
Drenching never stops
Fish us out

Did you forget what you came in for?
Still shaking the rain off
Fresh from the storm

So we saved up the good stuff
And scrapped for the liferaft
Pistols at dawn

It's overexposed
And only tits and teeth remain
It's overexposed
Keep your filthy hands off

Come and fight back
Need some help here
Bail us out
Had it up to here
Drenching never stops
Fish us out

Come and fight back
Need some help here
Bail us out
Had it up to here
Drenching never stops
Fish us out

Come and fight back
Need some help here
Bail us out
In up to our necks
Drenching never stops
Fish us out

Come and fight back
Need some help here
Bail us out
Had it up to here
Drenching never stops
Fish us out

Fish us out
Fish us out
Fish us out
Fish us out

And so we ride on
The ballad of nice and easy
Young and carefree

We're coming along
The ballad of nice and easy
Young and carefree

Two of these kids grew up on the same street
And though some folks blow it, there's no smoke in their eyes
They're tying their dreams with doubled up laces
Falling, free falling, tangled up 'til they die

And so we ride on
The ballad of nice and easy
Young and carefree

We're coming along
The ballad of nice and easy
Young and carefree

'Cause everyone knows they'll get their hands dirty
Ripping at seams and smoking hot knives
But sooner or later there's an end to this candle
We'll burn it at both ends and switch on the lights

And so we ride on
The ballad of nice and easy
Young and carefree

We're coming along
The ballad of nice and easy
Young and carefree

And so we ride on
The ballad of nice and easy
Young and carefree

We're coming along
The ballad of nice and easy
