Track Name: DOG hUNT
DOG HUNT

dogs hunting in the dark tonight - i couldn’t get to sleep to give me peace of mind - dog hunt

head heavy and my eyes are dim - can’t get to sleep it’s either me or him - can’t seem to keep him from my mind - thoughts trip quickly as my time unwinds - talk to myself to keep me sane - holes up in the roof - dogs are on my tail

rainbow’s chasing me i got the gold – sunlight flickers, click, the shutter’s closed – i claw at time falling down its hole - always crawling back to where i was before - my knees are grinding into gravel floor – chains dripping blood – scraping through to bone

dulled mind inside a twister wind – i drink the poison that comes beaconing – it spills on out as i am breathing in - choking me up to where he’s got me pinned - i gasp for breath but then again begin – to suddenly remember - all i thought forgotten

shark swimming in a salty soup – he dives down deep he takes you too – should i think to sink or should i swim – heat bleaching you above the sun again – water pouring down comes seeping in - sun peeling skin - like flesh is stripped from bone

head long into a heavy wind – what blows me in is at my back again - water rising up above the rim - river over flowing love from some holy hymn - i feel the pain of unsung stinging sin – he’s got me going under before even going in

broke window ripping straight through time - lost minutes missed the passing train – saints (go) marching hear them coming in – drumsticks always breaking where they’re wearing thin - i stumble in the dark too tired to sleep - my lungs are filled with lead - there’s trouble where i breathe
Track Name: haven't got a penny for my pocket
my love 4U for ever will b true
Track Name: so many ways 2fit within inside their infrastructura
so many many way to fit within inside this infrastructure x2

when i was a little young boy i thought that everything worked out like that, and now that i get older i miss the way things used to be when i was younger but now am older so it doesn’t matter anyways • i remember things like that

so many many way to fit within inside this infrastructure x2

somebody once told me that up is right and wrong is left and all these things made me think that this must be what life is all about, but now i’m having my doubts • i’m having my doubts

so many many way to fit within inside this infrastructure x1

when i was a little child my daddy sat me down onto his knee he said son, he said son you’re gonna be the light above the moon, that shines down for me it’s all i got(to) keep going on, can’t you see
can’t you be who i want to be, like me, can’t i just let it go

so many many way to fit within inside this infrastructure x4
Track Name: my great wild life
MY WILD LIFE

wild life - taking all my time
wildly expecting - reason from rhyme

wild life - dependant on memory
god’s speed adjusting to all that keeps changing

wild life wild life wild life

wild life living for answers
planning yer chances clean fight 'til the e nd

wild life divorced from the forces
that govern and give some semblance to things

wild life wild life wild life
Track Name: jESUS CHRISt
JESUSCHRIST HOW’D YA GET 2 BE SO ALMIGHTY

jesus christ - how’d ya get to be so almighty
jesus christ - how’d ya get to being something you didn’t suppose you'd be

you walked UP ON the water - what was the deal on that - my mother said the tides rolling in - my father said don’t even begin - it’s not worth thinking about that

got a message in a bottle - thrown out on to the sea - so i need someone to walk upon the water - to fetch my soul for me

jesus christ well i really really love ya - but i need to know just what yer all about
tell me about your fame - what’s your history - how d'U get yourself mixed up with all of that crap - that bullshit all sounds made up

jesus christ - how’d ya get to be so almighty
jesus christ - how’d ya get to being something you didn’t suppose you'd be
Track Name: susana
SUSANA

susana susana
i hardly got to know ya
i really wanted to
susana i bet you meant to get to know me too

susana bring you back again – back again
susana is it only fear - that makes me feel - i need to be your friend

susana susana
i saw you were not moving
to where the blessed do
susana god bless us both just for being you

susana i’m moving back to you - back to you
susana i’m moving back to be - the lonely soul - i always am
Track Name: way down low
i'll meet you at the bottom of the river
i'll meet you on the sunny side of shore
i'll meet you in the well in the cold cellar
i'll meet you as a beggar meets the floor
i'll meet you way down low
Track Name: flying high UPo'er you
i'm flying high UPo'er you

flying so high up over hell
i’m flying i kiss but never tell
i’m flying i’m flying high up over you

we’re crawling, crawling from the hate
we’re stalling, falling as we weigh
wondering if it’s really just too late to turn
i only gotta wait for you

I’M flying high up over midnight
looking down on all you little bright lights
look to where the light gets shined
half past then, according to design
don’t you think it’s about time, don’t you think it’s a bout time
that we shine, that we shine

flying so high up over hell
i’m flying i kiss but never tell
i’m flying i’m flying high up over you
Track Name: tick tick goes the clock
tick tick goes the clock
drip drip goes the
sickening sweet smell
of syrup dripping
bang bang goes the boots of someone
line dancing with nancy sinatra

bark bark goes the stripping of a tree of its dignity
broom broom is so obviously the sound of someone sweeping

cough cough goes the man still too weak to open up until death is at his door

pound pound goes the dollar down long live our - queen
squeak squeak goes the door mouse with hinges too weak to reap the rapeseed

dong dong is the the sound of the gong ringing in the china dinner time

hint hint is the impotent suggestion what was the question
sigh sigh goes the end of another day again in relief
