You'll be curled up like a cat won't you You'll be howling like a dog won't you You'll be running with the wolves don't you You'll be howling for your pack won't you Changes I'll be dancing on a moving carpet won't I I come crashing from the sky don't I I throw my glasses to the sea oh I Now I'm dancing with my eyes raised high Changes

Gotta get back to the deep So still so blue Where the spirits creep No light cuts through Gotta get back to the deep Where I feel safe You can turn your searchlights on And never see another face Gotta get back to the deep so still so blue Where an ancient city sleeps No sound cuts through Siren screams i'm tied to the mast Wondering how long I can last Hear your voice calling me Gotta get back to the deep So still so blue Where a spanish anchor lies At rest near an ageing tomb Siren screams i'm tied to the mast Wondering how long I can last Hear your voice calling me Hear your voice calling me Another time under the sea Where a spanish anchor lies at rest near an ancient tomb where a rusty shipwreck creaks No one can get through

Cool observations and warm conversations Words that bubble and flow Familia faces and exotic places Where most of us will never go Darkened byways and neon highways Shimmer in the asphalt heat The lights are glaring and the music's blaring Down here on Gabriel Street

How many times do I have to tell you It's far better to give than receive Turning up empty handed Is more than just a flaw in your genes In a trickle of friends and acquaintances Consuming and drowning this fight Not being good with this confrontation thing Has kept me well dressed, polite and always on time And hey We're dancing round the table once again Helpless hopeless friends You disappeared right in front of me an accassion I'll never forget Its not something you can schedule Or something you plan to regret The magic, the lady the well oiled routine Beauty has left the stage The husky past keeps whispering, whispering And hey We're dancing round the table once again Helpless hopeless friends And hey We're moving round this world at such a pace Helpless hopeless And hey We're dancing round the table once again Helpless hopeless friends

Railway tracks River of steel Working hard hoping time will heal Always wanting not that much Never thought I'd loose your gentle touch Why fight for what is yours Loosing battles on distant shores Man strives while empires fall No wonder it happens to us all My river wont stop till it reaches the sea Some find it hard to set the other man free My love not over Get up talk it over My cup over flowing No way of ever knowing Why part why steal? My heart needs time to heal My river wont stop till it reaches the sea Some find it hard to set the other man free Railway tracks River of steel Working hard hoping time will heal Always wanting not that much Never thought I'd loose your gentle touch

Spoke to me in russian It didnt make much sense You gave us rouples When we asked for pounds and pence Downed another vodka Sitting on your electric fence Covered us in concrete Then you tied the knot Waved us goodbye and let the anchor drop Fell down to the bottom Now you gotta get back to the top Looking like picasso But you forgot to frown Eating shark fin soup Down in china town You filled me up with helium And then you shot me down Covered us in concrete Then you tied the knot Straightened up your bow tie and let the anchor drop Fell down to the bottom Now you gotta get back to the top I'm chasing bullets With your fishing net i'm falling down Through your alphabet You're mixing chillie With my herbal cigarettes Covered us in concrete Then you tied the knot Straightened up your bow tie and let the anchor drop Fell down to the bottom Now you gotta get back to the top

Living out in space on the far side of the sun I have a radioactive face of liquid hydrogen So hard at the centre heavy with these fumes Surrounded by sixteen firey moons They can keep me company I'm half a million miles away from you It's a leap of faith when you stand at the edge It's a leap of faith fly from the ledge How can you trust in what you do And what you do not know You can call me Jupiter you can call me zuess I'm the greek king of a god forsaken universe I know that gallileo wished that he could fly I know that youre watching the lightning in my sky Can you keep me company I'm half a billion miles away from you It's a leap of faith when you stand at the edge It's a leap of faith fly from the ledge How can you trust in what you do And what you do not know I know that youre watching the lightning in my sky Can you keep me company I'm half a billion miles away from you It's a leap of faith when you stand at the edge It's a leap of faith fly from the ledge How can you trust in what you do And what you do not know

100 miles from saturday night Spent the evening on my own Wind on the shutters as the tom cats fight Over scraps and bones When I'm in my cloudy room Staring at the crescent moon Thats when I gotta get a message to you Help me I'm loosing my confidence What I do Seems of no consequence Catch me I'm falling Falling at your feet When I'm reaching my destination Looking for my inspiration Thats when I gotta get a message to you

Scare Me 02:57
Scare me When you close your eyes Tear me North east south and west Run and hide You're floating through the air So fast Light footsteps hardly touch Nothing can hold you here Hear me Lying so still on this dirty floor Spare me Trampling bullets through a kitchen door Youre drifting out to sea So fast Now there's only the sun and me Nothing can hold you here Suffer in silence Cant make no sense of it Feel angels breath on the back of my neck Suffer in silence Can't make no sense of it You scare me Scare me half to death

Carousel 03:59
I'm up and I'm down Going round and around What a feeling I'm holding on tight Screaming out in the night What a feeling We've done all we can Stood in the queue and paid the man My head starts spinning This world keeps moving around I look in your eyes My feet can't stay on the ground Takes me to another land Takes my heart Listen to the band Oh I'm under your spell Step right up to this carousel My head starts spinning This world keeps moving around I look in your eyes My feet can't stay on the ground We've done all we can Stood in the queue and paid the man I'm up and I'm down Going round and around What a feeling I'm holding on tight Screaming out in the night What a feeling My head starts spinning This world keeps moving around I look in your eyes My feet can't stay on the ground
