01. A Legacy

Music by Hogarth, Kelly, Mosley, Rothery, Trewavas
Lyrics by Helmer
When I leave you
I will leave you
Things that might not help you
Things that might
Problems that I never solved
Dreams to keep you up at night

As I leave you
I will leave you
Things that stick for ever
Things that slide
Mysteries I swallowed whole

Happiness I couldn't share
I will leave you
Promises I never kept
I will leave you
Stories that I never told
Principles betrayed or sold

Love I tried to spread too wide
I will leave you
Muscles you can grow in hate
I will leave you
Summer darkness
Winter light
Young mans shame and
Old mans pride

When I leave you
I will hate to leave you
That's the heat that grows
With growing old

So never let me leave you
Never let me leave you
Cold


02. Deserve

Music by Hogarth, Kelly, Mosley, Rothery, Trewavas
Lyrics by Hogarth
They got money, they got sun
They look like they're havin' fun
Don't it seem it's so unfair
They know something you don't know
They've got a better place to go
They're thin and rich and they don't care

We get the dreams that we deserve
The magazines that we deserve
Page one and three that we deserve

The joy and the pain that we deserve
The sun and the rain that we deserve
The material gain that we deserve
We get what we deserve

They got tension, they got stress
They got their lives in the press
The whole world stares as they undress
Sold their friends to get ahead
They do therapy instead
They've got demons in their bed

We get the toys that we deserve
The quiet and the noise that we deserve
The girls and the boys that we deserve

We get what we want if we really want it
We get what we want if we're really honest
You know what you are
You know what you want
You know what you deserve

We get the seas that we deserve
The flowers and the trees that we deserve
The spores on the breeze that we deserve

We get what we want if we really want it
We get what we want if we're really honest
You know what you are
You know what you want
You know what you deserve
You deserve
We get what we deserve
We deserve


03. Go!

Music by Hogarth, Kelly, Mosley, Rothery, Trewavas
Lyrics by Hogarth
Turn your life upside down
Take a car into town
Wait until the world's asleep
And tear it up and never stop again

Take a train to the sea
Stay up all night ..and be
It only takes a fraction of a second
To turn your life upside down

Take a train to the sea
Be anyone you want to be
A little spark of light inside your mind
Safe and sound off the ground upside down

Wide awake on the edge of the world


04. Rich

Music by Hogarth, Kelly, Mosley, Rothery, Trewavas
Lyrics by Hogarth
Reality is something that you rise above
We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are
Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run
The fearful fall foul of fate as often as the reckless

You don't need money to be rich anyhow
Spending yourself is what it's all about

No tears
No lies
No pain
No doubt
No darkness
No confusion
No loneliness, despair
No more, no more
It's all illusion

If you have made mistakes
There's always another chance for you
You can start over again at any moment
Any little time you choose

Talk about failure
To fall is not to fail
Failure isn't about falling down
Failure is staying down

Energy makes energy anyhow
Spend yourself and get rich right now

No tears
No lies
No pain
No doubt
No darkness
No confusion
No loneliness, despair
No way, no how
It's all illusion

Reality is something that you rise above
We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are
There's always another chance for you
You can start over again
Start over again
Over again
Any little time you choose
Get rich right now


05. Enlightened

Music by Hogarth, Kelly, Mosley, Rothery, Trewavas
Lyrics by Hogarth
Viva Brasil, Viva Vida

Bound up in this energy ball again
Laughing and bouncin' off the magic
Rollin' under like a surfboard in a wave
Washin' me up ...I want to do it again

Entwined in her arms
Spinning around and submarine beneath the deep of her
Climbing the forks of the lightning
Building a rod for my back it's all right, it's all right

Dreamin' a dream that only the sleepless know
Chilling the afternoon in "Viva Vida"
Watchin' the sun slide down the avenue
So real...

I feel...
Dizzy to fever with this love
The blues and the greys are waved away inside a day with her
Riding the forks of the lightning
Feeling the sparks along my back it's all right, it's all right

I thought I was born to take and to damage
But I'm giving and healing and feeling
Ultramarine and ultra-serene
Climbing the forks of the lightning
She told me today it'll be okay it's all right, it's all right

I'm a submarine in this ocean


06. Built-In Bastard Radar

Music by Hogarth, Kelly, Mosley, Rothery, Trewavas
Lyrics by Helmer
Best of three, the angel said
As daylight burst behind his head
Jacob all night wrestling with his angel

Then out into the boul' St. Mich
He cruises in a new Corniche
Now doesn't God stand up for B-A-S-T-A-R-D-S

Baby you can't lose it
You'd be mad to choose it
Don't you know he was born to do you down
You can't cheat your fate girl
Check the time and date girl
Don't you know he was born to do you down

But guys who show how much they care
Try hard to please and get nowhere
You know that every girl round here got built-in bastard radar

Baby you can't lose it
You'd be mad to choose it
Don't you know he was born to do you down

'Cause what will be will always be
Though stinging kills the honey bee
You know that every girl on Earth's got built in bastard radar

I'm singing "one-two" in the mike
You know I'm testing
I'm singing "Death where is thy sting?"
It's only resting

And thank God every woman knows
It's piss and wind and fancy clothes
That make a man a man
Thank God for built-in bastard radar


07. Tumble Down The Years

Music by Hogarth, Kelly, Mosley, Rothery, Trewavas
Lyrics by Hogarth, Helmer
She took my hand and said "Let's go together"
"You and me against the world"
And so we stuck it out through still and stormy weather
And so we tumbled down the years
I took her hand and said "Let's go together"
Just you and me against the world

Let's go together
Stay together
We'll tumble down the years
And we'll come to find the key behind it all

We never stopped to see if we were still in step
We never checked each other's eyes
To see who lived in there behind them
And down the years we disappeared

Let's go together
Say no together
We'll tumble down the years
Let's try together
Let's lie together
We'll tumble down the years

And though we never found the key behind it all
I think we came to know the meaning of the fall

Let's go together
We said "forever"
You and me against the world
Hold on together
And damn the river
We'll tumble down the years
We'll tumble down the years
We'll tumble down the years


08. Interior Lulu

Music by Hogarth, Kelly, Mosley, Rothery, Trewavas
Lyrics by Helmer, Hogarth
As you lie there on your bed
Beneath the face of Louise Brooks
With your makeup and your teddy bear
And your C.S. Lewis books
Bad seed
You're a bad seed

You're a decadent in chrysalis
Waiting sleepily to emerge
When you'll visit every seedy need
Of your random obsessive urge

All the ruses that you use
All the food that you refuse
All the dust and tired air that feeds Interior Lulus
All the poisoned attitudes
And the lust for the unknown
And the second best that devils use
To make this world their own
Interior Lulu
Interior Lulu

Every rainy day by e-mail
As you lie there on your bed
Another virtual page arrives
There will be times when you remember me
Of the chapters you'll be writing
As the voices echo in your head
In the book called wasted lives
As you read Henry and Anais

All the lost weekends and booze
All the finger-and-thumb screws
All the sleepless worn out blues that bruise Interior Lulus
Interior Lulu
Interior Lulu

Use the anger
Paint a picture of it
Throw the colours
Use the pain, use the pain

Scream back a brand new emotion
As it runs across the skin
Fire across paper
Burn and curl, burn and curl

You thought you couldn't feel like this
But it's happening again and you're waking up in pain
Tattooed in that private place
Microsoft and tears
Intimately pierced

Discovering and remembering
You felt like this somewhere before
Stirrin' up the bed of the river
Somewhere you don't like to go

You wrote this down so many times
But you get up anyway and you write it down again
You've bored us all to death with this
Well who you gonna tell
When you've nothing left to sell

She says she's lonely
She says she knows me
But she's a one-way street

She told me what I already know

"If you can carry it out you can take it away
If you can carry it out you can take it away
If you can buy it, it can be bought
If you can buy it, it can be stolen
If you can break it
It's already broken"

Lately, I can stand to hear other people talking
So many empty conversations
What a waste of lips

Lately I can stand to stand on Primrose Hill
Look down upon the city
A heart pumping the roads

In our racing stripes
We rejoice at being "connected"
Without touching
Thank god for the internet

We stare at our screens
All our lives
What a waste of eyes
'Till the electrical storm blows our fuses
And we gaze, dumbfounded, at the rain

All the trust and tired care
Left to rust and go nowhere
All this gold beneath my skin
Sparklin' like sin somewhere within
In so deep
In so deep that
I can't sleep for these interior Lu lu lu lu lus


09. House

Music by Hogarth, Kelly, Mosley, Rothery, Trewavas
Lyrics by Hogarth
This house aches
I whistle it's tune
After so much noise
Freedom is silence

Half the house is missing
Taken half of me with it
I had imagined this
Hurting in a different way
Hurting in a different way

I still have the hi-fi
Quiet at all volumes
As my dull thoughts
Echo viscous and slow like the tolling of some great bell under water

When she cries she cuts me
And when she smiles I wanna die
Afraid of knowing myself
Our eyes stare out while we hide inside

Looking at it, not seeing it
Looking at it, not seeing it

The open windows
Let in the spring air today
And the birds sing their thankfully happy, brainless song
But the silence here finds a way to stay
Some kind of explosion
God, if you hear me
Throw me a line or strike me down
Do you refuse even to accuse
C'mon, do your worst
But lift this curse

Built this house on solid ground
But now it's crumbling tumbling down
Will nobody here even cry out for help?
As it slowly collapses into itself

Looking at it, not seeing it
Looking at it, not seeing it

Hanging on to this pain
It's no good
It's no good

But we try again

We try again
