Track Name: ALL THIS
All This

Today,
all day,
all we are,
is what used to be.

And all,
always,
all we'll be,
is history.

All this,

You're all I want,

So,
maybe,
either way,
we'll see.

All this,

You're all I want,
You're all I wanted...
Track Name: DON'T STOP
Don't Stop

Don't stop, but take your time,
Come on you're coming up strong, keep in line,

There are long faces hanging on the wall today,
Don't stop, don't give it all away

You know it,
What you want,

Beyond these four walls are doors,
Beyond these four walls are doors and doors and doors and doors...
Track Name: GOOGLE SONG
Google Song

I wondered what was where and what I was doing here,
at night I googled up my name,
I watched my name roll down the page,
from 1000 different towns and places,
not one of me was the same.

There was a banker and some CEO, some writer on some radio,
a broker and a baker and a booker and some barrister too,
then my fears were growing active, these other me's were quite attractive, but one thing didn't ring true,

They don't have you,
You're what they don't have.

If I'm not remembered when I'm dead, at least I'm remembered when I'm here, I'm well remembered by you,
you don't forget me, not even nearly,
that's why I always want you here,
you remind me of the things I'm supposed to do.

Not some banker or some CEO or some writer on some radio,
a broker or a baker or a booker or some barrister too,
a cook, a consultant, cabinet maker, chiropractor,
a quarter back, quaker, carpenter or an accountant I concluded
it's fine, because it doesn't ring true,

They don't have you,
You're what they don't have,

You.....
Track Name: GONE COLD
Gone Cold

We've gone cold,
But this thing is on fire,
If we don't say so,
We're just little liars,
Cold,

We've gone cold, (cold)
We talk about the embers,
We're gonna fold, (fold)
If we don't remember,
Cold,
We've gone cold.

I wanna be,
I wanna be reminded,
Of what it was like,
But first we gotta find it,
Could take it in turn,
Could take it in time,

We've gone cold, (cold)
We talk about the embers, (the embers)
We're gonna fold, (fold)
If we don't remember, (remember)
Cold,
We've gone cold.

I'm shaking like I'm old,
You're shaking like a child
if we don't say so,
We're just little liars,
Take it in turn.....

We've gone cold
Track Name: GET ALONG BETTER
Get Along Better

I wanted to,
Shoot you in the process,
Kick you where the sun missed,

I wanted to, I wanted to,
Kick you out of my head,

With sticks and stones,
Bones and skin,
It groans,
It moans,
It breaks.

So Please,
We can get along better,
And I know,
We can just get along honey please,
Please,
'coz i la la la la la la love you a lot,
I la la la la la la la la la love you.

I wanted to,
I wanted to,
I couldn't kick you out of my head,

So Please......
Track Name: TANIA
Tania

If she was Tania,
She'd be a better Tania and she,
She doesn't mean to harm her,
She just wants something to believe,

In the dance hall car park,
She'll wax lyrically,
If she was Tania,
What a better Tania she'd be,

She watches Tania,
A much better Tania she'll be,
Didn't mean to alarm her,
But her and three friends agree....

If she was Tania
She'll be a better Tania you'll see
If she was Tania
She'll be a better Tania you'll see

And now that she is Tania......
She didn't mean to harm her.......
She didn't mean to harm her.......
Her three friends agree,
If they were Tanias,
They'd be better Tanias than she.....
Track Name: IMAGINATION
Imagination

Aglow on the ceiling,
is the neighbour's TV,
and I'm lying under it tonight,
going over, going over, going over in the light.

I was high on an air way,
holding me over,
the gap of an ocean in my mind,
holding me over, holding me over, from saying its over, in the light.

I still want a piece of,
your peaceful antidote,
holding me under here tonight,
holding me over, holding me over, from saying its over, in the light.

Imagination,
Imagination's fine,
We can hold on to what we like,
Imagination,
imagination's fine,
I'm holding on.
Track Name: OUT OF FASHION
Out of Fashion

Just walk away,
From all my bragging,
All my boasting and bragging telling people that you're mine,

I couldn't believe,
I couldn't believe it when I tried,
....that you were mine

We're out of fashion,
And what I feel is what I fear
I'll take it, take it...in style.
Track Name: MISS METABOLISM
Miss Metabolism (Lady Alien)

Miss metabolism,
With more muscle than me,
We were making sweet talk,
But she wanted to eat...

I cooked her TV dinners,
I cooked it on a beach,
We were going ah la la la la la la,
But she wanted to sleep...

Got tied up in pillows,
They pressed in my eyes,
Her body an anaconda,
Constrict my size.....

Lady alien,
Lady alien,

Take me to your big ship,
And bring me alive,
In a stadium of crazy aliens,
Alive....

Why won't you stay?
Lady alien......
Track Name: TURN
Turn

Turn gently,
There are velvet suds upon the breeze,
You're picked up and hurled free,
Just turn gently

Blown off your feet,
Blown off your street
Thrown up and onwards
Just rise

Turn gently,
There are velvet suds upon the breeze,
You're picked up and hurled free,
Just turn gently

I loved you here,
And I'll love you where
Where ever you can finally feel you found your feet

Turn gently,
There are velvet suds upon the breeze,
You're picked up and hurled free,
Just turn gently
