Lyrics

The Hole

Silly to fight when there’s nothing to fight for
I’ve got this disease and it’s quite delightful
I’ve been in the hole for quite some time now
The whole hell hole is cold
I’ve been in the hole and I saw the sky closing
I felt the cold and it’s really quite frightening
I heard what you said and I don’t think I like it
You know you’re cold when you’re hiding

Are you better in the hole or are you better out?
Shame on for that thought
You can stay in and shout

You can stay in forever
No-one gets you out
There’s only one thing to do with a hole
And that’s fill it in

Are you better in the hole or are you better out?
Shame on for that thought
You can stay in and shout

See the light shining through
It’s flooding into your eye
Oh my God look at the size of that one
I think I’d better avoid it

I want to know where it is
There ain’t no holes down here
I want to know where it is
There ain’t no holes down here

Are you better in the hole or are you better out?
Shame on for that thought
You can stay in and shout

Chase

Get on to the water and chase out your life
Bufton’s looking older now
He’s searching for disguise
He breaks into a sweat
Lots of people hiding in their homes
Watching information films
Calming down their fears
Disguise has disappeared
I can’t afford to live now
It’s time for a change
I’ve got to get away from this
I’m breaking out my cage
It can’t be far away

Learn all about yourself
Take a good look
Open up your mind now
It reads like a book
Five heads in one hat
Get onto the water and chase out your life
Bufton’s getting older now
He’s looking through his eyes
He’s started to take shape

Get on to the water and chase out your life
Get on to the water and cut out your life
Get on to the water and shape up your life
Get on to the water and cut out your life

Billy Botch

Billy Botch and his curious dilemma
About the what to do with a big time plan
A tangled circumstance hatched over tea
The roof’s come in this is Billy’s plea
Once a man of serene confidence
Never the one sitting on the fence
I remember Billy as a timid boy
He never grew out of his favourite toy

The only child of the village queen
People always chaffed him about his size
Small in stature but big in face
Stumpy fingers the problem in Billy’s case

After many years making shoes
Billy thought that he couldn’t lose
It was long before the lights went out
Billy’s boots weren’t even worth a shout
So now he’s got nobody, no-one too
His eyes are closed I think he’s using glue
Once a revered man the big chief monkey
Limping round town like a one legged honky

His father looked on in a state of collapse
As the clog shop cronies were boarding the bus
Now Billy wishes for the better days
He was the only one in so many ways

God Who

I came along with toss lots
I don’t know where to turn
I’ve gotta make a choice though
And I’m sure gonna get my fix from the house of

God… Who?
God… Who?
God… Who?
God… Who?

So many different ways now
And I’m following the signs
I’ve got to learn to taste though
‘Cause you know what I’m like

God… Who?
God… Who?
God… Who?
God… Who?

They say the grass is greener on the other side
I don’t even know my name and I’ve got no pride

There’s tears rolling down my face
I can’t take in a physical way
It’s you who’s taken the mental
Who’s going to pay for this fallen disgrace? It’s

God… Who?
God… Who?
God… Who?
God… Who?

I thought I knew the answer
I thought I had a chance
I was passing through the entrance
And taking up the dance with

God… Who?
God… Who?
God… Who?
God… Who?

I didn’t like the look of that thing
He didn’t want to play
Well I’m really very sorry
I didn’t want it anyway

God… Who?
God… Who?
God… Who?
God… Who?

God. That’s who

Say It

Look at stupid over there
Her valium smile and disappointing hair
I liked her right from the start
That lasted just one day
I hope she goes away
The ugly stink and the dirty mess
Available now at the right address
An assault on the soul
Here at the bottom of the hole
In the name of progress they say

Say it now brother Bone
Say it again, say it now
Say it now Idlebone
Say it

To make me smile and to help me sing
I got new shoes and a shiny thing
From a man with some more
And he was keeping the score
I’m feeling boss cocky today
This one is black and the other’s white
I like them both but is either right?
Tiny holes in the shell
You leave it where it fell
It’s here I’m going to stay

Say it now brother Bone
Say it again, say it now
Say it now Idlebone
Say it

Lowly

I’m throwing out the nasty bits and filling them with good
I’m trying to get the beautiful flowing through my blood
The looking glass looks back at me and gives a gnarling scream
It’s not what it’s looking at it’s what is in between
Trying to find the real man is not an easy task
But take the journey anyway, try walking down the path

If you’re feeling lowly or if you’re feeling below
Don’t take a look inside yourself; you don’t know where you’ll go

Breathing in and breathing out, breathing all the time
Searching for the inner piece that’s trying to cross the line
Breathing in and breathing out, breathing all the time
Breathing in the outer hush that’s trying to get inside
Taking in the glass of love and keeping it at bay
But love is only loving when you’re giving it away

If you’re feeling lowly or if you’re feeling below
Just take a look inside yourself; you don’t know where you’ll go

Taking in the glass of love and keeping it at bay
But love is only loving when you’re giving it away
So if you try to keep it protected in your heart
There’s a chance that it will stay and your glass will fall apart

If you’re feeling lowly or if you’re feeling below
Just take a look inside yourself; you don’t know where you’ll go

Light In The Sky

Standing by your side, I can feel you’re cold
Two tiny holes with which to see
Your hand is there to hold
The light in the sun will dance today forever
The light in the sun is me

I remember now what you said about the sound
And how to turn the book
The story’s different this time round
The light in the sky will shout your name forever
The light in the sky is me

I feel like we are flying
Take my hand and come with me
Through the clouds this is us together
Two souls are in harmony
Up here my love I am with you
Loose my hand and you will fly
Float up to the stars forever
We will never say goodbye

This artificial world bares the shadow of my soul
Proudly displayed ten miles above
A land in dazed control
The light in the stars will be a child forever
The light in the stars is you

Wormy

He dropped the meaning of his words to get his point across
He folded up the sheets of information
Looking down, he struggled with the staging of the act
His head in hands he felt anticipation
He fell upon his blooded sky
And pondered on the reasons why
Falling for the sweetness of seduction
The wormy can he opened up
Whilst seeking out the cover up
Lay wriggling on the grounds of resurrection

He’s falling through the sand my friend
He’s hoping that it never ends
And grows his roots until they reach the core
Fire licks out at his feet as he wraps himself in earthy sheets
And drifts along the flaming open shore

He didn’t mean the things he said, the language came out wrong
He crumbled in a glowing contradiction
They shook their heads and rolled their eyes small noses to the air
They grilled him with a knowing fascination
He thought that they had missed the fact
By loading truth upon their backs
He tried to find a reason for his action
Now standing there upon his hill
The doubters’ mouths all stood still
He chanced a moment of wormy satisfaction

He’s falling through the sand my friend
He’s hoping that it never ends
And grows his roots until they reach the core
Fire licks out at his feet as he wraps himself in earthy sheets
And drifts along the flaming open shore

Spider Love

This earthly substance can aspire
And leaves all nature raged in fire

His poison feeds on dust and lies
The spider he is very wise
All grace to him for he has grown
Spider love is sewn

The poor, the foul, the false, the wrong
This wicked skill is far too strong

His poison feeds on dust and lies
The spider he is very wise
All grace to him for he has grown
Spider love is sewn

The spider food is turned to stone
Thick sleep inside his cloudy home

His poison feeds on dust and lies
The spider he is very wise
All grace to him for he has grown
Spider love is sewn

Spanish Dancer

I got into my house and turned on my tv
There was a Chinese man looking back at me
Chinese man in an action movie
Wearing a polystyrene helmet & trying to be groovy

Why do the Chinese heroes die?
Why do the Spanish dancers cry?
Why do the Chinese heroes die?
Why do the Spanish dancers cry?

With his gun and garter he rode his horse into a rut
A Spanish dancer killed him at the end of this strange cut
And when you see the Spanish dancers cry
You will perceive my concept

Why do the Chinese heroes die?
Why do the Spanish dancers cry?
Why do the Chinese heroes die?
Why do the Spanish dancers cry?
Why do the Chinese heroes die?

I got into my house and turned on the tv
There was a Spanish dancer
Looking back at me. I said,

Why do the Spanish dancers die?
Why do the Chinese heroes cry?
Why do the Spanish dancers die?
Why do the Spanish heroes cry?

Pappaoohmow

My name is never mentioned, my zip gun’s ready to go
I’ve got a t-shirt for every day of the week
And I’m looking for a mind to blow
I can’t say that I’ve seen much since I rolled into town
I got a baby next door with her eyes in her head
And her husband’s ready to blow, he go

Oohmowmowpappaoohmowmow

I got shot last winter the scar’s in a special place
I had a girl tattooed around it with a bullet hole for a face
I dressed up early Friday and sent them off to school
I got a t-shirt for every day of the week
And the girls just wanna know: who’s that?

Oohmowmowpappaoohmowmow

I dressed up early Friday and sent them off to school
I’ve got T-shirts coming out of my head
And I’m learning a golden rule
I take them up to 40, I’m driving with closed eyes
I do some homework every Tuesday night
And I’m leaving one big fight. I am

Soldier

“If I’m scared I will admit it,” thought the soldier
Who knew when to make his move
The joining of men will alter the soil, that’s far more
Than this insanity

Lots of people making all their moves
They didn’t know when to make it
Better ask the soldier
Ask the soldier

The boundaries change but stay the same. The race is run
A brave will can carry it through
Lessons in light will alter the flight, that’s far less
Than this marching fist

Lots of people making all their moves
They didn’t know when to make it
Better ask the soldier
Ask the soldier

The boundaries change but stay the same. The race is run
A brave will can carry it through
Lessons in light will alter the flight, that’s far less
Than this marching fist

Lots of people making all their moves
They didn’t know when to make it
Better ask the soldier
Ask the soldier, ask the soldier
They didn’t know when to make it
Better ask the soldier
Ask the soldier, Ask the soldier
They didn’t know when to make it
Better ask the soldier
Ask the soldier

Blooty

Take the dust on withered wings
Breath it in and feel the sting
The need to fly will fill your mind
Create, rebuild, reshape, refine
Climb the ladder, take the strides
Use the pods the dust provides
Create the beauty, build the need
Shape the future, refine the seed

Open your eyes
Take the beauty, take the prize
Open your eyes
Snake the blooty, make the prize

Think of it, project it in
Experiments in fear and sin
Free your thoughts and take them higher
The rage, the need, the lust and desire
Seal the pod and think it real
Watch your thoughts mix and congeal
Feel the rage and feel the need
See the lust, desire the breed

Open your eyes
Take the beauty, take the prize
Open your eyes
Snake the blooty, make the prize

You had the power to make your prize
To use it right and use it wise
Your darkest thoughts will now appear
Destruct, destroy, distort, disfigure
Your prize is here, you can’t turn back
Your thoughts are wrong of pure black
Destruction now, distort the breed
Destroy this vile disfigured seed

Open your eyes
Take the beauty, take the prize
Open your eyes
Snake the blooty, make the prize

Wonderfully like Frank

Frank’s a bird, a golden bird
When he wants to be, he can be
A golden bird holding in a tree
When he wants to see, he can be

Frank the man, the bird, the man
Telling his tales of the meadow
Standing by the heavens’ sky
I want to be there
Wonderfully like Frank

Chase the sound, it’s all around
The frequency to the power of me
It’s all around my lovely gown
The frequency to the power of three

Eclipse the shore there must be more
Gracefully pulling from the meadow
Standing by the heavens’ sky
I want to be there
Wonderfully like Frank

The western rain on feather plain
His beak shut tight, sustaining flight
The journey soon over sandy dune
Kiss goodbye, Frank’s in the sky

Frank the man, the bird, the man
Telling his tales of the meadow
Standing by the heavens’ sky
I want to be there
Wonderfully like Frank

Frank the man, the bird, the man
Telling his stories from the meadow
Standing by the heavens’ sky
I want to be there
Wonderfully like Frank

Wren

Come with me, I’ll take you away
On to the back of a flying wren
She’ll take us high to the top of the world
Coming back now and again
To see the people we left behind

We are the babies who beg to see
The world from a higher plane
We’ll come with you on the back of a wren
To see how in time we change
To creatures of high experience and joy

Come now with me and I’ll take you there
Come to the highest degree of pain and dread and fear
And everything horrid that I can think
To make you fear your shadow
And everyone else’s now

We are so frightened, scared and alone
We don’t know which way to turn
Escape, get out, oh yes
We’ll be good for a long, long, long time away

Telstar

There’s a picture on my desktop screen
A face that everyone has seen
Lava lamps and platform shoes
Sit at home and get the news
The sight and sound right down the line
Clicking the thing and feeling fine
The radiation fills the void
Alan Turing, Clement Freud

Synchronise orbits in decay
They didn’t put you there to stay
Is it nice to stroke the lobe
Sixty miles above the globe?
Your pitted skin, your battered plate
You’re telling me that it’s too late
The hungry stations take your beam
What the hell does all this mean?

Telstar

Computer screens and TV shows
Signal through the midnight rose
You towed the line, you took it first
Your new world just fuelled the thirst
Now it’s junk and contact in my home
So I’ll never be alone
Telstar world I want you back
Now my world is never black

Telstar

Cannot Know

We had a really nice time, oh yes we did
People showing off, showing me their talons
I guessed all of their thoughts but they didn’t know mine
I was worried about them, they didn’t really care

You have the use of all your limbs
You really do not know
You have control of your mind
You simply cannot know

One of us was very tired, oh so very tired
The others feeling down, down and dull they felt
I knew all of their problems, but they didn’t know mine
I needed them to care, they really didn’t know

Take a small piece and analyse
You might think you know
But think about it all again
You simply cannot know

Medication Time

Tommy eats his fish with a spoon
Alice skips along to the tune
In her head that plays while she’s asleep
The nurse shouts help every day
‘Cause Norman’s got voices that are taking him away
To the moon very soon
To the moon very soon

Vince stands & stares at the gate
He can’t go out ‘cause when he does
He stands in shops on one leg
And he drones & spins about the size of his hands
Have you seen the size of Vince’s hands?

They’re on drugs, yeah drugs
They’re on drugs, that’s drugs
All they have to do is shout, “Give me more drugs”
Gimme more drugs, more drugs, more drugs
Gimme more drugs
All they have to do is shout gimme more drugs
Goo goo gaa gaa goo goo gaa gaa more drugs

Vince, Tommy, Alice & the nurse

Tommy eats his fish with a spoon

Get It All

Now it’s smaller and portable
For ease of use
The screen will adjust
To your constant abuse
You’ll need one of them
It’s the latest thing
It refills and recharges
And the engine sings

This is wireless and tireless
And teaches you right
Look into this thing
Look into its light
It’s tiny and thin
And it fits in your palm
It’s neo and geo
And will keep you calm

It’s rapid fire
And automatic reload
You’ll need all of these
To travel our road
You’ll need it, you’ll want it
You’ll get it all
You’ll have it, you’ll hold it
You’ll have it all

You’ll need it, you’ll want it
You’ll get it all
You’ll have it, you’ll hold it
You’ll have it all

(repeat)

50 feet of flame

I am standing on the edge
I’ve got my eyes closed tightly
But my mouth is open wide
So I can taste what is inside

Like the ink from the squid
Across the stars of the lid
The weeping chamber beneath the shell
In the story you don’t tell

The more things change the more they change
From the things that they were
So don’t you change the way you are
‘Cause you look stupid and I like it

Like the ink from the squid
Across the stars of the lid
The weeping chamber beneath the shell
In the story you don’t tell

Did you see King Nabisco
In South San Francisco?
Did he wipe your slate quite clean?
Did he show you his machine?

Like the ink from the squid
Across the stars of the lid
The weeping chamber beneath the shell
In the story you don’t tell

Like the stars of the lid
Across the ink from the squid
The weeping chamber beneath the shell
In the story you don’t tell

Time to Let Go

The lure of illusion will come from without
Exciting and all in a doubt in the now
Friction and fantasy, figures of speech
And error projection are all in your reach

Now it’s time to let go still you want to hang on
Move from missing the point to missing someone
You can always deny that the feeling has gone
From the lens to the retina something went wrong

The flickers of probable light that you see
Show form to your feelings of tranquility
That forever in time wait for nothing to come
And ill fitting fractions unfold in to one

Now it’s time to let go still you want to hang on
Move from missing the point to missing someone
You can always deny that the feeling has gone
From the lens to the retina something went wrong

Plus system discourse in the lengthening now
The liminal skills of the snake and the cow
With physical certainty towers above
An ocean of emptiness ebbs without love

Now it’s time to let go still you want to hang on
Move from missing the point to missing someone
You can always deny that the feeling has gone
From the lens to the retina something went wrong

Impressed by the moment thoughts frozen in space
Sentenced to death by the look on your face
As the meaningless paragraph crumbles to dust

Now it’s time to let go still you want to hang on
Move from missing the point to missing someone
You can always deny that the feeling has gone
From the lens to the retina something went wrong

Fishboy

It’s in my starlog
Me & my space dog
We’re coming to see you
My guidance is true
I’m zooming to you

Glittering sun, blasted by size surrounded by fears
Giddy machine your crystal world slowly appears

The purple fishboy
Brings people such joy
Galactical dancing in a webbed shoe
He’s dancing for you

Glittering sun, blasted by size surrounded by fears
Giddy machine your crystal world slowly appears

There’s chaos in order
Fishboy’s in the water
Splashing and hissing
He’s shouting at you
We’re zooming for you

Glittering sun, blasted by size surrounded by fears
Giddy machine your crystal world slowly appears

Sixty Zippers

Scratching the ground with my bloodshot eye
I’m looking so hard and I can’t see why
Hectic sub-human, wrinkled face
Weakness for speed
I’m only chasing

Stretching my face with sixty zippers
You modified how I appear

Albert the fool tackled the atom
Kept his head when the thing broke down

Stretching my face with sixty zippers
You modified how I appear

Stretching my face with sixty zippers
You modified how I appear
Pushing the dirt out through the window
Then sixty zippers disappear

You Don’t Really Need It

Oh if it buzzes and you can catch it
You can keep it, you can hatch it
Like honey dripping from a leaking sky
When it snows, nobody knows, where it goes

Well if you land it and you don’t crash it
You can fly it, you can buy it
When all these things are really out of reach
You can have it, even though you don’t really need it

You don’t really need it

And if it shines and you don’t flash it
You can light it, you can fight it
When people tuggin’ at your coat for a favour
Turn the corner, don’t look back
Just keep on walking
Keep on walking

Wheat Chaff

Well look, there’s a hairy one
And that one’s far too small
This one has too many hands
And this one can only crawl

This one’s face is far too big
And this one has no eyes
Look at that one, it stands too tall
And its mouth is much too wide

We need perfection to start this line
We can’t have wrong, we must have right
We need perfection to start this plan
Bring in the Hazard Man

Hazard Man

I am the Hazard Man
Shiver fast my time began
My glitter head with flimsy hatch
My hollow bones a bitter match
The sculptor adds myopic eyes
With pearls for tears this is my prize
I am the star, the metal flap
You glare at me and miss the trap

Hazard Man, we come to you
We come to you, you are the one
Hazard Man, the Hazard Man
We come to you, you are the one

My pentecostal wrath will shine
A silver head will be your shrine
I look upon your outstretched hands
My guidance falls on your demands
Your bleeding voice, your earthy head
Is nothing to this purebred
I’ll teach you all the way of one
The way the spark it has begun

Hazard Man, we come to you
We come to you, you are the one
Hazard Man, the Hazard Man
We come to you, you are the one

I’ve got you now, you all are mine
The fears, the faith, will all take time
So ask the sphere, you will be heard
Take the answer and spread the word
‘Til splinters clash, I’ll rule this place
Granting each my fiery grace
Belief will surge with glittered dreams
And carry you on holy beams

I am the Hazard Man
I give to you this perfect plan
Come to me, embrace my ways
Find your way through the hectic haze
I am the one, the one for all
My time is long, I will not fall
Come to me, ride my waves
It’s all for me, the hazard saves

I am the Hazard Man

Hazard Man, we come to you
We come to you, you are the one
Hazard Man, the Hazard Man
We come to you, you are the one

But think about it all again

Crack in the Egg

From a crack in the egg
The dust oozes out
Microscopic forbidden rage
So pure and untouched
Pulse with a timeless glow
This race must start to flow
The life will find its dirty way
This has become their day

The welcome flame of this dark sky 
Finds grey eyed trampled souls
Who drink it in with thirsty faith
To spark their hallowed bones
Soon the blaze will tempt their hands
Like a fiery bug so bright
Then the grey eyes shine metallic blue 
As they look into the light

 

Blooty

Take the dust on withered wings
Breath it in and feel the sting
The need to fly will fill your mind

You had the power to make your prize
To use it right and use it wise
Your darkest thoughts will now appear
Destruct, destroy, distort, disfigure
Your prize is here, you can’t turn back
Your thoughts are wrong of pure black
Destruction now, distort the breed
Destroy this vile disfigured seed

Open your eyes
Take the beauty, take the prize
Open your eyes
Snake the blooty, make the prize

Closing Down

I’ve blocked off the holes to my head
I can’t read your lips or hear what you said
I did not see your point of view
And as I smile the shit shines through

I can’t feel this energy
The radiation can’t find me
I can’t see a thing from your eye
A shark, a monkey, an alibi

Now I’m short of conversation
As you feed on my information

My soul sinks in
The eyes roll back
You crack the smile
And set the trap

 

Incubation

Leave me alone
My hooves are not yet fully grown
I sit here in my incubation pod
The masters stare and sometimes prod

Leave me alone
I float here in my serene home

The liquid is sweet like sugary sea
The masters all look so pleased with me

The restless, nervous looking walker
Frowns and smiles on
Push the buttons and smiles some more 
For the on-looking eyes
They look so pleased with their noble work

They all seem to agree
That the time has come to lift the lid
The time has come for me

Leave me alone

 

Warm

It’s so warm here, this feeling of nothing
It’s so warm and lovely this feeling

I’ve no idea where I’m going to
No religion, no point of view
I am free
I have no reason to decide
I have no history to hide
I am free
No illusions no regrets
I have no personal effects
I am free

But the ceiling’s coming in on me
And they’re coming in for me
Then they’re selling their way after me
And I’m losing this feel of serene

Oh it’s so warm here
Who are all of these people?
Keep away from me

All I need to know is here
I have no prejudice or fear
I am free
I think I’ll lie here for a while
I can’t speak but I know how to smile
I am free

But the ceiling’s coming in on me
Then they’re selling their way after me
And I’m losing this feel of serene
But I just want to lie and scream

Oh why did they do that to me
When I was so warm and lovely?
But now I’m out here, where the bad is
It’s not so, it’s not so lovely

I think I’ll just lie here, I think I’ll just lie here
I don’t know how to speak but I think I’ll just lie here 
And look on, on
So please tell me why it isn’t so lovely
And I’m not free
No I’m not free

Because the ceiling came in on me 
And their hands were all over me
Now they’ve taken my feel of serene
Why couldn’t they let me be?

 

Get It All

Now it’s smaller and portable
For ease of use
The screen will adjust 
To your constant abuse
You’ll need one of them
It’s the latest thing
It refills and recharges
And the engine sings

This is wireless and tireless
And teaches you right
Look into this thing
Look into its light
It’s tiny and thin
And it fits in your palm
It’s neo and geo
And will keep you calm

It’s rapid fire
And automatic reload
You’ll need all of these
To travel our road
You’ll need it, you’ll want it
You’ll get it all
You’ll have it, you’ll hold it
You’ll have it all

You’ll need it, you’ll want it
You’ll get it all
You’ll have it, you’ll hold it
You’ll have it all

(repeat)

 

Time to Let Go

The lure of illusion will come from without
Exciting and all in a doubt in the now
Friction and fantasy, figures of speech
And error projection are all in your reach

Now it’s time to let go still you want to hang on
Move from missing the point to missing someone
You can always deny that the feeling has gone
From the lens to the retina something went wrong

The flickers of probable light that you see
Show form to your feelings of tranquility
That forever in time wait for nothing to come
And ill fitting fractions unfold in to one

Now it’s time to let go still you want to hang on
Move from missing the point to missing someone
You can always deny that the feeling has gone
From the lens to the retina something went wrong

Plus system discourse in the lengthening now
The liminal skills of the snake and the cow
With physical certainty towers above
An ocean of emptiness ebbs without love

Now it’s time to let go still you want to hang on
Move from missing the point to missing someone
You can always deny that the feeling has gone
From the lens to the retina something went wrong

Impressed by the moment thoughts frozen in space
Sentenced to death by the look on your face
As the meaningless paragraph crumbles to dust

Now it’s time to let go still you want to hang on
Move from missing the point to missing someone
You can always deny that the feeling has gone
From the lens to the retina something went wrong

 

Real of Anything

Machinery turns slowly, relay clicks to go
Standing, seeing, sensing, well everything below
Random access memory refreshing each and then
You focus on the backup file that’s yet to implement

No need for real of anything
The replays are so good
Excitement heightened, maximised
Reacting as it should

It’s new, it’s fun, it’s research that only hurts a bit
Small price for large enjoyment whilst they recorded it 
Will playback at their leisure and savour every twitch
Your writhing thinky system is drowning in a ditch

No need for real of anything
The replays are so good
Excitement heightened, maximised
Reacting as it should

Machinery turns slowly, relay clicks to go
Standing, seeing, sensing, well everything below
So thanks again for stopping by, we hope you come back soon
Turn on, plug in and open up, what can we make of you?

No need for real of anything
The replays are so good
Excitement heightened, maximised
Reacting as it should

 

Mechanical Sea

Mechanical sea, born of dust
Spawn of a dream, made to adjust
The purpose is clear, the system is on
Consult the sphere, something’s wrong

I’ve been thinking for myself
Sinking for myself, sinking for myself

I’ve learnt to feel and feel I must
Retain the reel, tame the dust
I have no use for this prize
No more abuse for my eyes

I’ve been thinking for myself
Sinking for myself, sinking for myself

Mechanical sea
Pulling me down
Wrapped up in me
A movement to sound
Mechanical sea

 

Raindust

Take the rain, the rain’s the one
Drink it in for perfection
Take the rain, raindust has come 
Drink it in for perfection

Now I have the tools and the fiery glow
I have the sight and the need to flow
I seek perfection for my kind
Unfurl my wings and shoot to fly
Now I see them, now I hear
I feel the pain and know their fear
To give perfection and cure the pain
The purest dust I’ll turn to rain

Take the rain, the rain’s the one
Drink it in for perfection
Take the rain, raindust has come 
Drink it in for perfection

Now you see the need, the need for change
This race has now outgrown its cage
Break the locks and bend the bars
It’s time to make our perfect charge

Feel the power, feel the push
Drink it in and face the rush
Change your grey eyes to perfect blue
All of this I give to you

Take the rain, the rain’s the one
Drink it in for perfection
Take the rain, raindust has come 
Drink it in for perfection

Now I have the tools and the fiery glow
I have the sight and the need to flow
I seek perfection for my kind
Unfurl my wings and shoot to fly

Now I see them, now I hear
I feel the pain and know their fear
To give perfection and cure the pain
The purest dust I’ll turn to rain

Take the rain, the rain’s the one
Drink it in for perfection
Take the rain, raindust has come 
Drink it in for perfection

Sixty Zippers

Scratching the ground with my bloodshot eye
I’m looking so hard and I can’t see why
Hectic sub-human, wrinkled face
Weakness for speed
I’m only chasing

Stretching my face with sixty zippers
You modified how I appear

Albert the fool tackled the atom
Kept his head when the thing broke down

Stretching my face with sixty zippers
You modified how I appear

Stretching my face with sixty zippers
You modified how I appear
Pushing the dirt out through the window
Then sixty zippers disappear

Under the Sea

I can see there is a place
For us to be under the sea
The wind and waves will carry us past all the dark
To Neptune’s quay

We circle round above the ground
We hear the sound, we’re ocean bound
Face flowers shimmer in the wind
The cirrus cap above begins

Chase the shaft of light below
The silver crests under the sea
The shining scales, the fish and whales
Will always be down here with me

The inky water over blue
Distorts the beauty of the view
The coral forms its spiky crown
Under the sea with me come down

For a Wonderful Day

I’d go there on my own
‘Cos I can’t find the people
Try to face the future with a bottle in your hand
Try to tell somebody and make them understand
That I’m twisted like a serpent in a Gregory bush
Oh my god is this my life?
Oh my god don’t push

‘Cos there’s too much strain

There’s too much pain

But it’s too much hate
But it’s too late

For a wonderful day

Today another day in my life
Outside, light of day
Crossing the room, falling down
Pulling doubts in my life

Don’t you forget me
I’m living in this life

Don’t you forget me

Make this feeling right

Oh you beautiful one
Make a pass with your eyes
You make the day pass sweetly
You make the day feel right
But those inquisitive lies
A problem much too high
It’s like a primitive man with a gun in his hand

Don’t you forget me
I’m living in this life
Don’t you forget me
Time to decide

For a wonderful day

Wonderfully like Frank

Frank’s a bird, a golden bird
When he wants to be, he can be
A golden bird holding in a tree
When he wants to see, he can be

Frank the man, the bird, the man
Telling his tales of the meadow
Standing by the heavens’ sky
I want to be there
Wonderfully like Frank

Chase the sound, it’s all around
The frequency to the power of me
It’s all around my lovely gown
The frequency to the power of three

Eclipse the shore there must be more
Gracefully pulling from the meadow
Standing by the heavens’ sky
I want to be there
Wonderfully like Frank

The western rain on feather plain
His beak shut tight, sustaining flight
The journey soon over sandy dune
Kiss goodbye, Frank’s in the sky

Frank the man, the bird, the man
Telling his tales of the meadow
Standing by the heavens’ sky
I want to be there
Wonderfully like Frank

Frank the man, the bird, the man
Telling his stories from the meadow
Standing by the heavens’ sky
I want to be there
Wonderfully like Frank

Funky Little Song

Ding dong a funky little song
Everything’s up and nothing is down
Everything’s right and nothing is wrong
‘Cause we’ve got a funky little song

Ding dong a funky little song
Everything’s up and nothing is down
Everything’s so right and nothing can be wrong
‘Cause now we’ve got a funky little song

When there’s mad vibrations all around
When your house is upside down
When you’ve waited for us much too long
Here’s the way to help yourself along

Ding dong, funky little song
Ding dong, funky little song
Everything is right, and noting is wrong
‘Cause now we’ve got a funky little song

And when a mean person is mean to you
And I mean real mean, dig it
You just look that mean person right in the eye
And you say, “Hey mean person, mean person
I’m going to sing my funky little song right at ya”
And then you sing your funky little song right at them
And you sing it like this
You sing it as you know it goes’

Lyrics & Music by Bruce Haack from the ‘Together’ Album 1971 Copyright (Ted Pandel 2004)

50 feet of flame

I am standing on the edge
I’ve got my eyes closed tightly
But my mouth is open wide
So I can taste what is inside

Like the ink from the squid
Across the stars of the lid
The weeping chamber beneath the shell
In the story you don’t tell

The more things change the more they change
From the things that they were
So don’t you change the way you are
‘Cause you look stupid and I like it

Like the ink from the squid
Across the stars of the lid
The weeping chamber beneath the shell
In the story you don’t tell

Did you see King Nabisco
In South San Francisco?
Did he wipe your slate quite clean?
Did he show you his machine?

Like the ink from the squid
Across the stars of the lid
The weeping chamber beneath the shell
In the story you don’t tell

Like the stars of the lid
Across the ink from the squid
The weeping chamber beneath the shell
In the story you don’t tell

Italiano

A shining silver speeder scooter
Comes flashing in to view
The rider wears a knowing look
She knows just what to do

The racers move up to the line
With engines screaming roar
Titanium suit and mirror glass
The Venus of them all

Italiano, she is allegro
Must be vitesso, vapore
Italiano, ciao bella questo
Must be vitesso, bel fior

The racers’ charges spring to life
To hover in the vale
Their beams of light cut the air
For the speeders’ daring sail

Italiano master pilot
Shows passion with her grace
The crowd go wild with faithless pride
As she holds a perfect place

Italiano, she is allegro
Must be vitesso, vapore
Italiano, ciao bella questo
Must be vitesso, bel fior

Science guides the pulsing steeds
Delighting all who see
These warriors of speed flash by
As they ride their airy sea

The finish nears, the colours fly
As they scream up to the line
The speeder heads the chase machines
Has Italiano’s shine

Birdcat

The birdcat sings his haunting song
Through the willows on the bay
The pleasure point is flowing strong
The birdcat wants to play

The ancient puzzle troubles me
The keeper hunts him down
The guard move in to make their strike
The creature halts his sound

The quiet falls around us all
The rangers stalk their prey
Glistening points of shining steel
Send shards of light my way

Darkness hums with silent fear
Like music from the dead
The birdcat cowers out of sight
And shields his golden head

Every move surrounding him
The legend fakes to fly
Waiting for the perfect chance
To leave his foe behind

The arrows whistle through the trees
Birdcat launches free
Feathers fly, wings and tail
Teeth for all to see

The golden myth soars away
Outruns the weapons’ speed
Against the clear & near black sky
Defies the humans’ need

The night I saw the birdcat fly
Still lingers like a dream
Remains the view in my mind’s eye
The most beauty I’ve seen

Feed Me to the Fire

Breath in the sun, the sun is near
Breath in the sky, the sky is clear
The purple moon’s transparent light
See the waves so fast and bright

The wind it flows like fragrant breath
Calls me to my happy death
See the top the feel the bottom
Know your point then be forgotten

Feed me to the fire
This can take you higher

Zeros and ones, the ones and zeros
Fall to the ground like electric heroes
My nurse extends her pale fingers
A cage of rods so bright and silver

Feed me to the fire
This can take you higher

Kick the earth with the gloomy crime
The spirit of nature is a calling sign
Shipwreck stretchy neck eyes on the floor
My hungry ear demands some more

Feed me to the fire
This can take you higher

The speechless wrath in celestial guise
Beneath the waves the flowing tide
See the light and fool the shadows
Break the point then walk the shallow

My spinal pull sends sonic thoughts
But the thinky system sparks and shorts
Flick the switch and ignore the twitches
Throw it down it’s just a box of switches
