Track Name: Eleanoré
ELEANORE LYRICS

She steps quickly off the 68 bus
Sweeps her hair from her face
Kicks off the dust
The latch on the door is metal and rust

Stoops to pick up the post on the mat
Stares at the letter
Benjamin Franklin stares back
from North Carolina, in black

FROM FAITH, CAROLINA
TO LAVENDER HILL
WOMAN TO WOMAN
BOTH STANDING STILL

She runs quickly through the gap in the trees
Stops, takes aim and shoots,
Quickly reloads her Springfield
Her rifle is hard to conceal

Calm descends on the battlefield
Confederate soldiers move through the trees
To the west
Drops her gun to the ground
As she sees the boy
With the flag and the blood on his chest

FROM FAITH CAROLINA...

Two moments in history
The Atlantic between
Lost in the ashes
Of what might have been

FROM FAITH CAROLINA...
Track Name: All I Want
ALL I WANT LYRICS

I'm bored said the child
As she laid down her spoon
I'm bored said the child
As she frowned at the moon
I'm bored said the child
Let me out of this room
I'm so bored

I'm tired said the mother
As she lay down on her bed
I'm tired said the mother
As she put her hands to her head
I'm tired said the mother
And I heard just what you said
Cos I'm so tired

ALL I WANT – IS TO DO SOMETHING
ALL I WANT – IS TO GET A LITTLE PEACE
ALL I WANT – IS TO BE SOMEWHERE
ALL I WANT – IS TO BE RELEASED

I'm hungry said the man
As he flopped into his chair
I'm hungry said the man
As he ran his hand through his hair
I'm hungry said the man
Don't you even care
That I'm hungry !

ALL I WANT ....

Look out there said the child pointing at the sky
Look out there I see flying things waving me goodbye
Look out there said the Child as she asked the reason why
Living things must die and she began to cry
Look out there

ALL I WANT ....

I'm bored, I'm tired, I'm hungry
I'm bored, I'm tired, I'm hungry
I'm bored, I'm tired, I'm hungry
Look out there !
Track Name: Where Are You Now?
WHERE ARE YOU NOW LYRICS

Low is the sun in the sky
High is the moon in the heavens
Slow does the great oak grow
But far too fast does this life go

WHERE ARE YOU NOW?
WHERE ARE YOU NOW?

Green is my childish dream
Blue is my song for you
Red are the words I said
And black. black, black is the you I lack

WHERE ARE YOU...

Cold is the edge of the fold
Warm is the heart of this storm
Deep is my drifting sleep
Why did our paths collide

WHERE ARE YOU...
Track Name: Just Wasted
JUST WASTED LYRICS

Not dead – just wasted
It’s time – you faced it
Can’t even – get pasted
This joint – I can’t case it

I’M WASTED – OH SO WASTED
NOT DEAD – OO! JUST WASTED

Not dead – just wasted
It’s time – I had a facelift
Got a boyfriend – he’s a bassist
Don’t break my heart, I can’t replace it

I'M WASTED...


Got a car – you can’t race it
Got food – you can’t taste it
Got a call – you can’t trace it
Got a floor – you can’t pace it
Take a step – you can’t retrace it
See a face – you can’t place it
Got a shoe – you can’t lace it
Not dead – just wasted

I'M WASTED...

I know I still can get around
I know a pulse can still be found
I know I still can make this sound

Not dead – just wasted
Got a turkey – I can’t baste it
Got a rocket – it’s in my space-kit
Went to NASA – they defaced it

Not dead – just wasted
My inner self – can’t embrace it
My family – I disgraced it
This life – I misplaced it

I'M WASTED...
Track Name: Is It Me, Is It You?
I do not want a breakfast tray brought to my bed
I do not want a sprig of lavendar where I lay me head
I do not want some DJ playing a record in my name
No bathroom in the bedroom, it's too late to play that game

IS IT ME?
IS IT YOU?

Do not leave me flowers under the windscreen wiper of my car
Do not post me letters saying how sorry you are
Don't you call my phone again cos I'll ignore your call
How dare you lean a ladder up against my bedroom wall

IS IT ME?
IS IT YOU?

Pissing my name in the snow
Tickets to see Sheryl Crow
It's all I wanna do but without you
I'd rather be with a washing machine repair man - yeh yeh yeh!

IS IT ME?
IS IT YOU?
Track Name: Carol & Beryl
CAROL & BERYL LYRICS

(The verses are spoken and can sometimes change live so we've only given the first lines...)

This is the story of two lovely old ladies...


OH CAROL & BERYL
OH CAROL & BERYL

The weeks took on a rhythm as they do with good friends...

OH CAROL & BERYL ...

And people often pointed out how very lovely...

Everybody thought they were sisters
Everybody thought they were sisters
Everybody thought they were sisters
Everybody ...

OH CAROL & BERYL ...
Track Name: Downfall
DOWNFALL LYRICS

Rain's coming down, fields are flooding
Whatever you do - it isn't any use
River's rising, things washed away
All we can do is sit on the roof
(All we can do is sit on the roof)

Roads are closed - we can't get through
Though we try there is nothing we can do
Last December - six foot under
This time it's worse - we just sit on the roof
(we just sit on the roof)

DOWNFALL THE RAIN
DOWNFALL FOR US AGAIN

WATER, WATER ALL AROUND
AND THAT RAIN KEEPS FALLIN' DOWN
WATER, WATER ALL AROUND
AND THAT RAIN KEEPS FALLIN' DOWN
AND THAT RAIN KEEPS FALLIN' DOWN

They don't come to look at the water
They don't see what it's done to this place
Whatever they think now, whatever they say now
Whatever they do now it'll be too late

Last time - just the same
Took us months to get ourselves back here again
Now it's happening, happening all over
You wouldn't think there could be so much rain
(You would not think there could be so much rain)

DOWNFALL...
Track Name: Dr Dinosaur
DR DINOSAUR LYRICS

In a lab on a hill, in a lab coat the dinosaur stood
In the jars on the shelf were samples of rock, glass and wood
In one was the form of a human, a fully grown man
Let’s open it up an find out whatever we can

We'll start with the questions that bother us most in our minds
Use the clues on his body which he has left us behind
How did he live, and more, how did he die?
Was it violent or gentle, but overall why?

THE ANSWER'S VERY CLEAR
THE ANSWER IS RIGHT HERE
THERE FOR ALL THESE YEARS
HE DIED OF FEAR

It appears he sustained outward trauma from multiple force
His skin appears blackened, his hair is burnt, short and coarse
Of the many bones broken the one which is frighteningly clear
Is his skull it is shattered - see, here ear to ear

Any one of you care to hazard a guess to the cause?
The students looked worried. Not wanting to risk it they paused
'Til one eager candidate, Thomas Rex, lifted his arm
I'd heard about something, but thought it was all fake alarm

THE ANSWER’S...
Track Name: What Would Elvis Do?
WHAT WOULD ELVIS DO LYRICS

Well it's not that easy
To mend a broken heart
When it's cracked and black and blue
You told me we should part
Well baby - what would Elvis do?

I know you had those cheating eyes
I was blind to every clue
How could I know that they told lies
Well honey, what would Elvis do?
WHAT WOULD ELVIS DO?
WHAT WOULD ELVIS DO?

I have lost my eloquence
Think I'll go insane
These thorns twist in my chest
This pounding in my brain
Its not easy to shake you from my mind

Its like I've lost a blue suede shoe
WHAT WOULD ELVIS DO?
WHAT WOULD ELVIS DO?

Darlin', what would Elvis do?
If he lost his blue suede shoe?
What would Elvis do?
With a heart that's oh so blue ....
