Lyrics

Cox Is Pooped

Cox is pooped and wiping the sleep from his eyes/there’s a note on the fridge and a face at the window pane/drops his pen and climbing the stairs to his bed/there’s a drip from the tap and the face just stares ahead

The dinosaurs are feeding off my brain/and I can feel the pain/of every word/stuck inside my head

Drops the night, tossing and turning in bed/there’s a patch on the wall and the face still ghostly stares

The dinosaurs are feeding off my brain/and I can feel the pain/of every word/stuck inside my head/every word/stuck inside my head/every word/stuck inside my head

Cox is shot and wiping the sleep from his eyes/there’s a note on the fridge and a face at the window pane

The dinosaurs are feeding off my brain/and I can feel the pain/of every word/stuck inside my head/every word/stuck inside my head/every word/stuck inside my head

Heather Makes Her Face

Heather makes her face at the window/it’s late and she’s wondering/what they’ll say/when they hear

Heather shuts her eyes/and smiles/it’s for the good times/but, hey, nothing lasts

It’s alright/it’s alright/it’s alright/round here/destiny’s calling/and I hear

Heather turns her face/and sighs/it’s for the last time/hey, nothing lasts

It’s alright/it’s alright/it’s alright/round here/destiny’s calling/and I hear

It’s alright/it’s alright/round here/it’s alright/it’s alright/round here

She smiles/and waves/goodbye

Silver Gown and Golden Vest

Before you go down partly dressed/in silver gown and golden vest/ before you leave in painted hair/and high heel shoes and ‘Who’s to care’/be sure you’ve locked the door on Davy Jones/sitting there gagged and all alone

We’ll shave our heads and live off milk/we’ll speak our sins and scent our silks

We are the ones who know/you reap only what you sow/we take the night and day/make it bright and play

Before you go down partly dressed/in silver gown and golden vest/ before you leave in painted hair/and high heel shoes and ‘Who’s to care’/be sure you’ve locked the door on Davy Jones/sitting there gagged and all alone

We’ll shave our heads and live off milk/we’ll shave our brows and show our dicks

We are the ones who know/you reap only what you sow/we take the night and day/make it bright and play

Be what you want to be/see what you want to see/be what you want to be

Noonday Sun

Picture me on an empty hill/all my friends are gone and I’m looking on/fields of gold and green in the emerald sheen/noonday sun

Picture me in an empty chair/all my friends are gone and I’m looking on/children fresh and fair, summer glory/noonday sun

Aglow with fire I will cross the sky/in the name of song find my friend will come/like the only child speaking words of/noonday sun

Dripped in blood like the promised one/in the name of song you my friend will come/I will bless the child speaking words of/noonday sun

No, don’t ask me where I’m from/no, don’t ask me where I’m from

Take the light and pass it on/no, don’t ask me where I’m from/no, don’t ask me where I’m from/take the light and pass it on/take the light and pass it on

Lovers for The Weak

Take the sun from my hand

Take the sun from my hand/lovers will forsake you, understand/lovers will forsake you, understand/take the sun from my hand

I’m the morning dew, the blades of grass/the flies warming in the sun/I’m the spider’s web, it’s silvered thread/the face of everyone/I’m the domed blue sky above your head/I’m the bright disc of the sun/I’m the galaxies, the stars and/nebulae

Take the sea from my hand

Take the sea from my hand/lovers will forsake you, understand/lovers will forsake you, understand/take the sea from my hand

I’m the grain of sand, the flake of foam/the spray carried on the wind/I’m the turtle’s eye, the seagull’s cry/the song of every child/I’m the domed blue sky above your head/I’m the bright disc of the sun/I’m the galaxies, the stars and/nebulae

Lovers for the weak of faith/lovers for the weak of faith/lovers for the weak/of faith

Fiddle and The Cheshire Cat

You were out and at the shops/and I was in my chair/I heard a tapping at the window pane/’Kettles on, won’t you come inside,’/I said, and must have dozed awhile/she tiptoed out/left behind her hat/how strange/how strange

High/see the morning sky/take this heart of mine from sleep/high/shine among the morning light/wake this heart of mine from sleep/high

You were out and at the shops/and I was in my chair/I heard a tapping at the cellar door/’Kettles on, won’t you come inside,’/I said, and must have dozed awhile/she tiptoed out/left behind her hat/how strange/how strange


High/see the morning sky/take this heart of mine from sleep/high/shine among the morning light/wake this heart of mine from sleep/high

You know we love to keep you here/right here, right by our side/you know we hate to see you go/Fiddle to the Cheshire Cat/said, ‘Careful where and what you’re at.’/then tiptoed out/left behind her hat/how strange/how strange

High/see the morning sky/take this heart of mine from sleep/high/shine among the morning light/wake this heart of mine from sleep/high

High

We’ll walk down to the park/it’s a lovely summer’s day/a couple of lovers/and a child we call, Faye.

We’ll sing till the sun sets/then dance in the street/a couple of lovers/from the backstreets

It’s a lovely summer’s day/we’ll walk to the stream/the fish can blow bubbles/for Faye, you and me

We’ll sing till the sun sets/then dance in the street/a couple of lovers/from the backstreets

We’ll sing till the sun sets/then dance in the street/a couple of lovers/from the backstreets

Change

I love the way you change your mind/a brand new groovy look each time/a boy, a girl or both is fine/I love the way you change your mind

Red high heel shoes/gold rollerblades/silver platform boots/a cowboy hat/a pirate’s patch/a feather boa, too

I love the way you change your mind/a brand new groovy look each time/a boy, a girl or both is fine/I love the way you change your mind

White lace-up boots/pink Oxford bags/a sequined green tube/a sailor’s cap/a rubber bat/a feather earing, too

I love the way you change your mind/a brand new groovy look each time/a boy, a girl or both is fine/I love the way you change your mind

I love the way you change your mind/I love the way you sparkle bright/I love the way you make blush/and smile

I love the way you change your mind/a brand new groovy look each time/a boy, a girl or both is fine/I love the way you change your mind

I love the way you change your mind

Delicious

You’re delicious, loved by all/you make men and women fall/sleep all day and play all night/you’re delicious

You don’t need to talk/you don’t need to care/you don’t need to say your prayers/all you need is there

Sleep all day and play all night/you’re delicious, loved by all

Count your money day and night/count your money night and day/keep your secrets to yourself/hide your truth away

Sleep all day and play all night/you’re delicious, loved by all

Jagged Lines

Time creeps up the sand/while the shadows ‘cross the land/a cart-horse pulls his weary way/home

Hands move round the clock/the dew dries on the dock/the slowest, the green moss on the/wall

Jagged lines cut through my mind/a song I can’t recall/jagged lines cut through my mind/a song I can’t ignore/this faded photograph/of mine and yours

Time creeps up the sand/while the wind blows ‘cross the land/a cart-horse pulls his weary way/home

Hands move round the clock/the tide sweeps up the rock/the slowest, the green moss on the/wall

Jagged lines cut through my mind/a song I can’t recall/jagged lines cut through my mind/a song I can’t ignore/lost faces, black and white/of mine and yours

Carol and Jones

Here lie the bones of Carol and Jones/they played it too long in the sun/here by the sign by the old country line/they waited too long in the sun

Hear what you wish for and hear what you seek/you might just achieve what you want/hear what you wish for and hear what you feel/the beast will draw you in

The lark bravely flies in the sunset skies/the tree sheds its leaves in the dark/the wind blows the dust, the gate turns to rust/and row after row the crosses grow

Hear what you wish for and hear what you seek/you might just achieve what you want/hear what you wish for and hear what you feel/the beast will draw you in

The drum slowly beats for tired marching feet/the pipe blows its mournful tune/the wind blows the dust, the gate turns to rust/and row after row the crosses grow

Hear what you wish for and hear what you seek/you might just achieve what you want/hear what you wish for and hear what you feel/the beast will draw you in

Here lie the bones of Carol and Jones/they played it too long in the sun/here by the sign by the old country line/they waited too long in the sun

Something Queer

Way he’s looking now, don’t know who/told him what to wear and how to do/but spends all day now in yellow

With one green eye, I don’t know who/told him what to say to me and you/but spends all day now in yellow

Perhaps they gave him something queer/perhaps they gave him something to sing us back to you/in yellow

Perhaps they gave him something queer/perhaps they gave him something to sing us back to you/in yellow

Perhaps they gave him something queer/perhaps they gave him something to sing us back to you/in yellow
