**********************************************

1: Honey Skin.
.....................
Honey skin, eyes'o'green, prettiest face I ever seen,
I like th' way th' sun lights up y'r hair,
aw I love y' girl,
don't let them tell y' I don't care.


Here's some words that I swear is true,
I live for th' times that I'm with you,
y'r my deliverance, all that life could mean,
I only need y'r kissin'
to prove that I ain't just a dream.

I hope y' stay with me awhile,
I need th' mornin' of y'r sleepy smile,
y'r sparklin' eyes wake up th' day for me,
ain't no other lover babe makes me feel so easily.

I hope you'l stay but I know you'l leave,
I ain't th' kind t' fuss'n'grieve,
I live for th' here'n'now & when it's through,
I'll kiss y' goodbye girl, do th' things I have t' do.

hey babe, hold y' tight,
dance in th' mornin', dance in th' night,
hey babe, hold y' tight,
dance in th' mornin', dance in th' night.

----------------------------------------------
2: Black Silk Dress.
............................
Hey pretty lady in th' black silk dress,
I wanna taste of your caress,
hey pretty lady with th' black dress on,
dance up here 'fore th' night-time's gone,

gone,
too far gone,
gone,
too far gone.

hey pretty lady with th' night-time sighs,
d' sky's in disguise in diss guy's eyes,
hey pretty lady come fly with me,
this man's waitin' t' set you free,

set you free,
set you free,
set you free,
set you free.

----------------------------------------------
3: Gilded Lily.
.......................
You've taken all you can from me,
this crystal tear is all remains,
an empty shell discarded now,
you can have that as well, it's no use to me now.

you snared me with a false impression,
gilded Lily stole my soul,
turned to morbid fascination,
still I couldn't break away,
mesmerised by your intentions,
my thoughts in disarray.

You knew exactly what you were doing,
you played me like a steel guitar,
spun me out in y'r webs of fever,
until at last,
you drained my soul-blood dry.

you snared me with a false impression,
gilded Lily stole my soul,
turned to morbid fascination,
still I couldn't break away,
mesmerised by your intentions,
my thoughts in disarray.

When I met you th' summer sun was
fading in th' autumn breeze,
trapped inside y'r growing winter
y'r vampire touch brings frozen death to me

you snared me with a false impression,
gilded Lily stole my soul,
turned to morbid fascination,
still I couldn't break away,
mesmerised by your intentions,
my thoughts in disarray.

----------------------------------------------
4: Ticket out of Dizneyland.
..................................
Give me y'r money baby,
give me y'r gold,
give me th' cities burnin',
burnin' bright t' keep away th' mould,
gimme, gimme stocks'n'shares,
gimme air-conditioned airs,
I don't want no worldly cares,
I just wanna ticket out'o'dizneyland.

Duckburg's down an alleyway,
Futureland's just over th' next hill,
ol' Scrooge is playin' "el Dorado',
Mickey Mouse is terminally ill,
I've got to formulate a plan,
organise a ticket outa dizneyland.

Everybody's wearin' white gloves,
everybody's bein' NICE,
everybody's stealin' from th' poor
& tryin' t' say it ain't a vice,
if y' gotta pay t' see th' band,
give me a ticket out'o'dizneyland,
organise a ticket out'o'dizneyland,
buy me a ticket out'o'dizneyland,
no I don't wanna live in dizneyland,
I ain't got th' time t' live in dizneyland.

----------------------------------------------
5: Ain't it a Shame.
............................
Do you remember
th' way things used to be,
th' world was there for th' takin',
to be taken by you&me,
but now things seem so different,
I guess we changed a lot,
we chased too many rainbows,
now we've lost all those we caught

& ain't it a shame,
ain't it a cryin' shame,
somewhere along th' line
we lost our way,
& neither me nor you's t' blame,
things will never be,
no things will never be th' same again.

We could hold onto th' past
& try to pretend
, but it would only hurt us more
when we finally reached th' end,
we should say goodbye now,
admit that it's all over,
set eachother free again
& keep our memories of eachother

& ain't it a shame,
ain't it a cryin' shame,
somewhere along th' line
we lost our way,
& neither me nor you's t' blame,
things will never be,
no things will never be th' same again.


----------------------------------------------
6: Ode to th' Dudes
(who own their own nukes).
.................................................
They won't let us live on th' beaches,
they won't let us live in th' trees,
th' bastards just lock us in stables
& sell one another th' keys.

I was born t' this planet,
alive & unarmed,
I was thrown into structures
more easily farmed,
with doctors & lawyers
& labourers & sheep
& cattle & businessmen,
all in a heap.

On th' planet I'm born on
th' bastards'l tell ya
that slavery's banned
whilst they package & sell ya,
they won't let us live
on th' beaches & trees,
while they breakfast at "Maxim's"
& brunch in Los Angeles
(that's Concorde for ya)

They won't let us live on th' beaches,
they won't let us live in th' trees,
they won't let us work out our own lives,
they won't fuckin' leave us in PEACE.

----------------------------------------------
7:Demon Street.
...................
I had me th' prettiest lover,
prettiest lover in th' land,
ah but she was th' girl of another
& I could not win her hand,

but she would've been my woman,
I'd've growed her up so sweet,
but all I had t' offer her
was a house on Demon Street.

Oh when we was layin' together,
oh, it felt like she was mine,
but she was only lyin'
when we treated us so fine.

So I threw my hat down on th' floor
& I left her there with him,
I said "I'm not about t' waste my life
on someone elses whim".

ah but she was th' prettiest lover,
& I still love her so true
& I guess this hurt that's twistin' me
ain't nothin' 'specially new,

But then I think back & remember,
how something in me died,
how somethin' went forever
when I found out she had lied,
true love ain't built on lies,
I ain't got no time for lies.

I had me th' prettiest lover,
prettiest lover in th' land,
ah but she was th' girl of another
& I could not win her hand,
but she would've been my woman,
I'd've growed her up so sweet,
but all I had t' offer her
was a house on Demon Street.

----------------------------------------------
8: About You.
.................
I
can't really tell you
what th' time is,
not without givin' away
too much of it
& I
don't even know
just what th' hell is goin' on 'round here,
so tell me why should I care about you,
in your loneliness & isolation,
where you,
live with your pre-thought out
conclusions, illusions,
about me
& about th' way that I am feeling,
about you,
about you,
about you,
th' way I'm feeling about you.

----------------------------------------------
9: It's Not Fair.
...................
It's not fair, it's not right,
I need you baby, here with me tonight,
today, so all alone,
I can't put my arms around you,
can't even reach you on th' 'phone,

because you're gone, gone away,
I couldn't find th' words t' keep you,
couldn't do th' things t' make you stay.

I'm like death, numbed & depressed,
I thought you'd seen th' real me,
seen that I wasn't at my best.

It's you I love, you that I crave,
without you I'm a vampire
in th' sun without a grave.

I'm burned, I've learned,
that loving you is my forever,
even though th' tide has turned,

I'll live, I'll just be dead,
on th' inside I'm a zombie
without a heart I'll use my head,

you were th' first, in oh-so long,
to make me hurt like love like innocence,
I'll love you in my song,
to make me hurt like love like innocence,
I'll love you in my song,
to make me hurt like love like innocence,
I'll love you in my song.

-----------------------------------------
10: Hard Hard Woman.
...........................
I travelled 16 miles bare-foot,
'cross shards'o'razor stone,
th' sun beat down on my head
& on my neck, but I still went on,
I reached your place 'round nightfall,
bloody & burned & beat,
I fell through th' door,
gibberin' mess on th' floor,
ya yelled "get out & wipe y'r feet

you're a hard, hard woman baby,
hardest woman any man dream of,
y' got so many rules & regulations,
no excuse I've got is ever good enough.

Well I only get t' see ya twice a week,
when y'r folks are out on th' town,
& then I blow my dough on hush money
('cause y'r kid sister's always around)
& y'r daddy's german shepherd's
always tryin' t' bite me on th' crotch,
but y' know that it's true,
after one night with you
I can't feel it all that much.

Yeah, you're a hard, hard woman baby,
hardest woman any man dream of,
y' got so many rules & regulations,
no excuse I've got is ever good enough.

Well I don't know if you'l change y'r ways,
once y'v knocked me int' line,
I just know, by th' time I go,
I ALWAYS feel so fine,
& one day I ain't gonna leave at all,
I'll just tell y'r folks t' screw,
'cause there ain't no-one in th' world,
in th' whole wide world babe,
loves me bad as you

Yeah, you're a hard, hard woman baby,
hardest woman any man dream of,
y' got so many rules & regulations,
no excuse I've got is ever good enough.

Yeah, you're a hard, hard woman baby,
hardest woman any man dream of,
y' got so many rules & regulations,
no excuse I've got is ever good enough.

-----------------------------------------
11: Slaves,
Replacement Technology
& th' Neutron Bomb.
.................................................
Promises through th' ages,
Utopia to come,
keep on workin' for us,
we'll let you have some,

soon we'll have machinery
on which you can resign,
androids that build androids,
that fish, farm, build & mine

& all th' populations,
in every place, in every land,
will never have t' work again,
will never have t' stand

At least that's what they tell ya,
those bastards on th' hills,
th' ones that own th' shelters,
th' ones with light-that-kills

So they keep on sayin',
"Utopia for everyone,
keep on doin' our dirty work,
diggin' up th' sun"

but now they've got their "Clean Bombs",
that kill but don't hurt steel,
& once they've got those robots,
that light's th' last you'l feel

Because you're at "Ground Zero",
& that's just where you'l lay,
'cause in givin' them y'r skills & labour,
y'r handin' y'r lives away

& when th' Earth's been sterilized,
& th' radiation fades away,
they'l come back out t' th' sunlight,
& give THEIR kids th' new day,

Don't call me too presumptuous,
at least not to my face,
'cause from where THEY see it BABY,
it's called "Winning the Human Race"

So keep on toiling as they
for that techno-breakthrough bait,
they've held their forts for centuries,
Millenium can wait,
Millenium can wait,
Millenium can wait,
Millenium can wait.

----------------------------------------------
12: Midnight Alibis.
........................
What do you want from me,
what do you need from me,
have I got anything you want,
or is it just sympathy?

Can you take anymore from me,
without terminating me,
make me carry your cross just so that
you can crucify me.

You twisted my mind
with your words like steel,
splintered my soul,
rolled me 'round like a wheel,
you washed out my brain
with your salt-water lies,
you cornered th' market
in midnight alibis,

alibis, alibis,
your midnight alibis,
alibis, alibis,
your midnight alibis

Waves of cynicism
pour through your witicisms,
drown all your troubles
in an ocean of criticism

It all seems so pointless,
th' things ya do & say,
like calling me back
just t' chase me away

You twisted my mind
with your words like steel,
splintered my soul,
rolled me 'round like a wheel,
you washed out my brain
with your salt-water lies,
you cornered th' market
in midnight alibis,

alibis, alibis,
your midnight alibis,
alibis, alibis,
your midnight alibis

Now I'm tearing down
all th' lies & facades,
I won't play no more Harlequin,
no more charades
forget all your promises,
you know they're all lies,
bury them all
with your midnight alibis,

alibis, alibis,
your midnight alibis,
alibis, alibis,
your midnight alibis.

---------------------------------------------
13: Love Song 612.
......................
I've tried a thousand times
to write a song for you,
but I could never seem to find
th' perfect words,
I never realised
how hard that it would be
to put love like ours
into lyrics & chords.

Every time I've tried
to put my love on paper,
it seems to lose it's way
inside my mind
& though it sounds blase,
all that I'm really tryin' to say
is that words can't hope
t' match this love I've found

I've tried a thousand times
to write a song for you, but I could never seem to find
th' perfect words,
I never realised
how hard that it would be
to put love like ours
into lyrics & chords.

& though it sounds blase,
all that I'm really tryin' to say
is that words can't hope t' match
this love I've found

---------------------------------------------

Hope you dig th' prose,
party hard or go home.
