Don't Know

I'm feeling kinda nervous - I jumped right outta my skin
I've always liked my booze - But I'm looking kinda thin

And I don't - No I don't know, know what to do

I like to feel quite restless - I'm living in a hole
Whom I trying to kid - Deliver my evil soul

I say i don't - No, no I don't know, know what to do

Underground, overboard - Watch your back, ask your lord
Desperation takes a hold- Cause I'm left feeling empty and cold

I don't - You know I don't, don't know what to do

I look real bad around you - Who we trying to fool
Everything is ending - But we still try to look so cool

I don't - No I don't know, know what to do (3x)



Eye For An Eye

Well the worlds turning black and you've got no hope
And everybody's running cos they've got to go
What you gonna do when your time runs out
You'd better do it now while there's people about.

An eye for an eye
A tooth for a tooth
Everybody's waiting for my next move
Turn the other cheek and you get shot down
Never mind the love in the last hateful town

The fires have started and the skies turned black
The world is angry and that's a fact
Just carry on with your head in the sand
Judgement day well the final command

Chorus

The fires have started and the skies turned black
The world is angry and that's a fact
Just carry on with your head in the sand
Judgement day well the final command

Chorus

 


Head Driven Sinner

Well whatís the difference between right and wrong?
When the wrong is right and the right is wrong
But who so ever should call my name
Escape the business escape the pain
Hanging around here does a me no good
Well without a reason if I could
Never listen to a word I say
So Iíll go it alone and youíll go your own way

Head driven sinner - Well youíre a head driven sinner
Youíre a head driven sinner but I like your style
Well youíre a head driven sinner and I like your style
Youíre a head driven sinner - Youíre a head driven sinner
Youíre a head driven sinner but I like your style
Youíre a head driven sinner and I like your style

Been waiting for the planets to align
Been waiting for a wondrous sign
Is it the end or do you begin
Whom I trust, accepted in him
Hanging around here does me no good
Without a reason if I could
Never listen to a word I say
So go it alone and go your own way

Head driven sinner - Youíre a head driven sinner
Youíre a head driven sinner and I like your style
Well youíre a head driven sinner but I like your style
Youíre a head driven sinner - Youíre a head driven sinner
Youíre a head driven sinner but I like your style
Youíre a head driven sinner and I like your style

Well whatís the difference between right and wrong?
When the wrong is right and the right is wrong
But who should I let call my name
Escape the business escape the pain
Hanging around here does a me no good
Well without a reason if I could
Never listen to a word I say
So go it alone and go your own way

Head driven sinner - Youíre a head driven sinner
Youíre a head driven sinner but I like your style
Well youíre a head driven sinner but I like your style
Youíre a head driven sinner - Youíre a head driven sinner
Youíre a head driven sinner but I like your style
Youíre a head driven sinner but I like your style



Hypnosis

 When you're under the spell and you cant break free
And nothing ever seems like reality
You're mind is bound and you're in their hands
Feeling like a stranger in a foreign land.

The chain that swings is the vital clue
You push it aside but it always breaks through
Feel the power and take the strain
Poison or the pleasure of panic and pain.

You sit in the chair you tie down the cords
forever in debt to the word of the lord
You know who's the master the curse of us all
The one with the power who's trying to store

Read the page of the treasured race
The state of the future speaks face to face
Grin and bear it buddy someone's got a way
To never collect or ever be repaid

My Dream

Well, really doesnít matter anymore
No, really doesnít matter anymore
Iíve fallen in love with a girl that doesnít exist
A girl of my imagination, a girl Iíve never kissed
Iíve seen her in the streets in the waterfields green
But I canít seem to make her reappear from my dream

Well, really doesnít matter anymore
No, it really doesnít matter anymore
Iím stuck in this trap, looks like Iím here to stay
Looks like Iíll never be free, well you mean it was meant to be this way
Well pretty pretty darling Iíll make it up to you
But Iím still in love with that old girl dressed in blue

Well, really doesnít matter anymore
No, it really doesnít matter anymore
Iíve fallen in love with a girl that doesnít exist
A girl of my imagination, a girl Iíve never kissed
Iíve seen her in the streets in a world that feels green
But I canít seem to make her reappear from my dream


Leap The Frog

Well are you going to the frog party?
Where you can jump and hop about
You gotta scream into action but don't get distracted
Or you'll get a kick in the mouth

Oh everybody wants to play
But when the things do go wrong you just sing my song
The frogs they will go away
Oh when you leap the frog you've got to jump real high
Cos if you don't it will jump on you
Oh when you leap the frog you've got to jump real high
And if you do you'll be a frog too

Now don't be a tadpole with no legs don't sit in a sperm bank
You gotta jump in the middle and then play the frogs fiddle
Or you'll get your teeth knocked out

Oh everybody wants to play
But when the things do go wrong you just sing my song
The frogs they wont go away
Oh when you leap the frog you've got to jump real high
Cos if you don't it will jump on you
Oh when you leap the frog you've got to jump real high
And if you do you'll be a frog too

Now well I was once a school frog
Taking one step at a time
Oh please don't be last you gotta stomp fast
or you'll gonna lose your mind

Oh everybody wants to play
But when the things do go wrong you just sing my song
The frogs they wont go away
Oh when you leap the frog you've got to jump real high
Cos if you don't it will jump on you
Oh when you leap the frog you've got to jump real high
And if you do you'll be a frog too


Mystery Man


Sits away from the crowd-Living in his head
Very rarely makes a sound- Heīs the living dead 
No one knows what he thinks what he eats what he drinks
Everybody thinks they know about the sham

chorus:

Donīt underestimate the minds of others
I feel the mystery man

Jealousy rules the crowd-Honesty pulls the crowd
Opposite sometimes mix-Normal ones arms wonīt twist 
Stretch he clock feel the wine anarchy is in my mind
Everybody thinks they know about the sham

chorus

guitar solo

Jealousy rules the crowd-Honesty pulls the crowd
Opposite sometimes mix-Normal ones arms wonīt twist 
Stretch he clock feel the wine anarchy is in my mind
Everybody thinks they know about the sham

chorus

Why are you so worried-Why are you so square
I like sitting in a tangled mess- Within my darkened lare
Every dog has its day-But mine is yet to come 
Until that day i'll keep on yearning-Until my work has done
Until that day i'll keep on yearning-Until my work has done

chorus

Sits alone from the crowd-Living in his head
Very rarely makes a sound- Heīs the living dead 
No one knows what he thinks what he eats what he drinks
Everybody thinks they know about the sham

chorus (3x)


Nightmare

Don't get caught in a nightmare baby
Don't get caught in a vacuum
Don't get caught in a nightmare baby
Don't go in a squalid room
If you're thinking of shutting it up
Don't do it on a dark winters night
If you see a green sleeved man
Don't start spoiling with his red light.

You're in a nightmare you cant get out
You don't know what's happening or what it's about
You're in a nightmare you cant get out
You don't know what's happening or what it's about

You're in a nightmare- You're in a nightmare
You're in a nightmare - You better beware

Horrible faces they turn with a glear
In an acid dream well everything comes clear
You want to wake up but you're inquisitive
Round the corner in your dreams will you live
The dogs speak in tongues that are habit at your mouth
Your thoughts seem to happen in a dark dingy house.

Chorus

The table moves across the room in silence
And nightmares are about a poetic licence
You can cut your own head off yeah anything goes
Round the corner in your dreams and mind your toes *
The sleepwalkers when woken up are caused heart attacks
There's nothing but a nightmare when he's got an axe.

Alt. *When the guillotine comes down mind your toes


Pass It On

Don't keep tellin' me that I'm wrong
I don't need your advice all along
The road thatīs straight and narrow
Get off my back, can't you see i'm low

You just can't seem to see my problem i just keep passin' it on.

Well i'm just tired of being the fool
No more breakin' the golden rule
For one, and not the other
Don't boss me about, you ain't my mother

You just can't seem to see my problem, i just keep passin' it on.

Well i'm just tired of being the fool
No more breakin' the golden rule
For one, and not the other
Don't boss me about, 'cause you ain't my mother

You just can't seem to see my problem, i just keep passin' it on
You just can't seem to see my problem, i just keep passin' it on
You just can't seem to see my problem, i just keep passin' it on


Psyclops Carnival

Fill me with suspicion cos the devils in my head
The stench of rotting flesh -The covers on my bed

Rock the psyclops carnival and the demons burn inside
Rock the boat and the sea will swallow, swallow all his pride. yeah


Haven't got much anguish cos you're whizzing round my mind
Take me back to your place there's nothing left to find.

Rock the psyclops carnival and the demons burn inside
Rock the boat 
and the sea will swallow, swallow all his pride. yeah

The ghost train meets at Bridgwater fuelled by an empty heart
Prayers of the burnt are evil and the feast begins to start
There's only one way to escape this discerning cause
Why don't you look in the mirror instead of a faked applause

Rock the psyclops carnival and the demons burn inside
Rock the boat and
and the sea will swallow, swallow all his pride. yeah

Fill me with suspicion cos the devils in my head
The stench of rotting flesh -The covers on my bed


Rock the psyclops carnival and the demons burn inside
Rock the boat and
and the sea will swallow, swallow all his pride. yeah


Rockjet

Simple isometric archtopped curve
You've had it your way now go and learn
Sit beneath the tin shed on Tuesday afternoon
Quiet cool sophisticated ,happy little tunes.

Rockjet is coming coming to get you
Go and cry to H now the Rockjets on the moon. x2

Well you've had it your way I've noticed that
Eating, sleeping, drinking. You're getting fat
I hope you're happy now you're threats have passed
Wipe that grin from off your face cos you just didn't last.

Chorus

Well now you've seen the Rockjet go home and criticise
I don't really mind if no hurt is in your eyes
I just feel better as if the pegging level
Rockjet is a mean machine i love to have it all.

Chorus x2

Rockjet ,Rockjet rockjet's on the moon.


Rules For Fools

The horoscope rules is a book for fools - Donít read into it too much 
Cause if you do your life will change and youíll be out of touch 
The future is something we must not know of when, when we do 
Start acting accordingly but somethingís are never true 

The horoscope rules - The horoscope rules 
The horoscope rules is a book for fools 
Why donít you tell me the truth and donít break the horoscope rules
 
The horoscope rules is a book for fools - Donít read into it too much 
Cause if you do your life will change and youíll be out of touch 
And when we look into to the stars you canít see your destiny 
And when the world is swirling around, you will start to see
 
The horoscope rules - The horoscope rules 
The horoscope rules is a book for fools 
Why donít you tell me the truth and donít break the horoscope rules


Satisfied

Oh to hell with rebellion
To hell with confusion
Cause I just can't be bothered
To stick around
Stuff your wisdom - Keep your pride
I just hope that you are satisfied

You never ever climax
Cause you're never ever there
Oh you don't even look good
That's why everybody stares
Call that guts for you they died
I just hope that you are satisfied

To hell with the system
Oh to say yuck
I don't need subscriptions
And I don't need any luck
Keep your fear put your love aside
I just hope that you are satisfied
Stuff your wisdom - Keep your pride
I just hope that you are satisfied


The Source

Well it's just wont do and it goes nowhere
And you're all so thick you just don't care
Never seen such Lunatics just standing there getting hit.

You're flogging a dead horse
You're flashing you're last quart
So let's take it back
Let's take it back
Let's take it back to the source

Well I know some about who stomp around
Let's do something that won't make you frown
Lunatics who lounge around
Are more mysterious when they get down

Chorus

Well we just want to stay on track
Don't want to lose that vital fact
We just want to stay on board
Don't get bitten by a devils sword

Lead break

Well it's not much but new to you
If no one tries everyone will lose
If you start to criticise
Remember cats just nine lives

Chorus

bass riff

Chorus


Three's A Crowd


Pull the chain a bit tighter but not too tight to kill
Don't you know it's dangerous playing the way you feel
Crack the egg and look inside if that's what you want to see
Seeds are sown round quickly and that's what's garage disease

cos twos company three's a crowd
I can't stand it when she's around x2

Please walk the tightrope but don't don't you fall
I've got all my emotions in one pocket and all
I've got my provisions at the bottom of the ship
Don't you think it's time for another midnight trip

Chorus

Just try to see it as a square tiled floor
if there's room for the reptile then there's got to be more
If you can't well take my spirit, then forget my soul
Jump in the grave that's been dug for you before you get too old.

Chorus


Time To Think

Why do you keep on chasing me?
Why wonít you let me alone?
Stumbling in from peak to peak
Your feelings have been sown

Oh well I just need time to work things out
I just need time to think
Now I know Iím out of control
Wonít you give me another drink?
I just need time to work things out
I just need time to think
Donít you let me sink?

What the hell gives you the right to look at me that way?
What makes you so perfect?
Thereís nothing left to say

Oh well I just need time to work things out
I just need time to think
Now I know Iím out of control
Wonít you give me another drink?
I just need time to work things out
I just need time to think
Donít you let me sink?

Why do you keep on chasing me?
Why wonít you let me alone?
Stumbling in from peak to peak
Your feelings have been sown

Oh well I just need time to work things out
I just need time to think
Now I know Iím out of control
Wonít you give me another drink?
I just need time to work things out
I just need time to think
Donít you let me sink?


Torment

See the planets craving for lust behind the wall
Take another helping until you've got it all
I could tell you things that might make you cry
Black lagoon with twisted features red snakes that lie
Make sure your covers are around you late at night
What the hell would you do faced with a pink traffic light


Torment what is meant for
For the torn out wretched heart that was born to feel more
Torment what you gonna do
Do to those that didn't want, to want to go through blue


S
ee the hazy sunshine bordering a little stream
Steadily rising, you'd better join the team
Mysteriously placed. faced with a rubber stone.
Watch the mist go by now, the wound is sewn
Alcohol is my drug although I could take more
Phasing around me electric jetted whore.


Torment what is meant for
For the torn out wretched heart that was born to feel more
Torment what you gonna do
Do to those that didn't want, to want to go through blue


S
ee the hazy sunshine bordering a little stream
Steadily rising, you'd better join the team

Watch the mist go by now, the wound is sewn

Phasing around me electric jetted whore.


Torment what is meant for
For the torn out wretched heart that was born to feel more
Torment what you gonna do
Do to those that didn't want, to want to go through blue


Uncle Sam

With another special thanx to Roy Williams

Well, you've got lots of tanks and guns with attaching strings
We've got silver pistols swords lots of boats and things
Get your big fat boots on boys, GI uniforms
Shiny buttons and para boots, I don't wanna them tattered and torn

chorus

Hey YOU! -- Who me?
Well, I'm not Uncle Sam

Well, get your big fat boots on boys, GI uniforms
Shiny buttons and para boots, don't wanna them tattered and torn
Across the see we're going', visiting' our friends
We are in the army now, and sure are on the mend

chorus

Hup, two, hup two three, four. (aaarrgghh )

You Did Nothing

You did nothing - Nothing at all
Turned my mind into a lunatic hall
Oh youīre nothing - Nothing at all
The only thing left to do is fall
You just don't wanna live
You just don't wanna wanna wanna give at all

You did nothing - Nothing at all
You sent my money into a spinning whirl
Oh youīre nothing - Nothing at all
What makes you think youīre the girl
You just don't wanna live
You just don't wanna wanna wanna give at all

You did nothing - Nothing at all
You waterlogged my mind in a drowning pool
Youīre nothing - Nothing, at all
I blew you out when you were at school
You just don't wanna wanna live
You just don't wanna wanna wanna give at all

No you did nothing - Nothing at all
Corroded all my senses just to be so cold
Youīre nothing - Nothing at all
You really think youīre so beautiful
You just don't wanna wanna live
You just don't wanna wanna wanna give at all


Worse and Worse

Give me a little water - Give me a little sun
Sit back and watch me flourish
Watch me overcome
All the battles in our lives- All the anger in our earth
Won't somebody help me take some hate out of this world

Everybody is a bit to blame
They say that it has always been the same
But I think it's getting worse

Give me a little shelter- Give him a little too
I could do with a little help-Instead of writ to sue
I don't mind variation - I don't mind ups or downs
But all we ever get is kicked down to the ground

Everybody is a bit to blame
They say that it has always been the same
But I think it's getting worse


Give me a little water - Give me a little sun
Sit back and watch me flourish
Watch me overcome
All the battles in our lives- All the anger in our earth
Won't somebody help me take some hate out of this world

Everybody is a bit to blame
They say that it has always been the same
But I think it's getting worse
But I think it's getting worse
But I think it's getting worse
But I think it's getting worse
Worse worse worse worse...
