01. Bland Street Bloom

As the dove rains
As the dove rains

There's no ambition, told from vision
Pre-recorded maze of wisdom
Bland Street Bloom, a moronic feeling

No ambition, plague of pidgeons
Twisted up in your maze of wisdom
Shake-up, make-up, fake-up
Think you need some healing

No ambition
Same old wrong millenium scorn
Maze of wisdom
Bland Street Bloom, a moronic feeling

Pretty little birds all singing in the street
Few trees left, bare and shivering
In this hollow bitter street

No ambition, told from vision
Pre-recorded maze of wisdom

Bland Street Bloom
Bland Street Bloom
Bland Street Bloom
Bland Street Bloom
Bland Street Bloom

As the dove rains blood
As the dove rains blood
As the dove rains blood
As the dove rains blood

A world of wonders
Man-made mechanical thunders
A world of wonders
Man-made mechanical thunders

Like stuffing a turkey
Gutless, hollow
Man-made premeditated hole
Like a rock that doesn't roll
You are the rock that doesn't roll
Like a rock that doesn't roll
You are the rock that doesn't roll

Empty coal into the fruit bowl
Become a machine
Just one of the people
Welcome to the middle road
Your soul has now been scrolled

No backbone, just torn and thrown
Into the show you go
No backbone, just malignant groans
Of what and where and now

Of what and when and how of what
Don't count on nothing being free
Because when you're in the concrete sea
Not you or me in between

I can't stand them, I can't stand this
About as much fun as drinking a pint of piss
Can't wear that and you can't smoke this
Bitter as a cold brew
Bitter as a cold brew pint of piss

A world of wonders
Man-made mechanical thunders
A world of wonders
Man-made mechanical thunders

As the dove rains blood over the streets
Man-made mechanical thunders

I think I've seen this thing
Too many times before
Mediocrity has never been a way of life
I've been inspired by seeing all this strife

Bland Street Bloom
Bland Street Bloom
Bland Street Bloom
Bland Street Bloom

Bland Street Bloom
Bland Street Bloom
Bland Street Bloom
Bland Street Bloom

I can't stand them, I can't stand this
About as much fun as drinking a pint of piss
Can't wear that and you can't smoke this
Bitter as a cold brew
Bitter as a cold brew pint of piss


02. Flogging The Horses

Flogging the horses
Report in the office
Camels walking free
Drinking honey tea.

Flogging the horses
Report in the office
Camels walking free
While they're drinking honey tea

Let's encourage
The freedom of speech
Then kill it with a bullet
Down on its knees

Rampant remains, shattered in disdain
Your work is gone, the trauma lives on
Rampant remains, shattered in disdain
Your work is done, the trauma lives on

Let chickens escape
Their torturous fate
Let the eagles fly in the wild
Let knowledge be learnt
From the chosen child (jesus)
Wait for something wild

You talk of the sane, so show is the way
This world is ours to feed
But then you open the door and
Everyone hits the floor
Why should these people bleed?

No sign of the boots
To free and to loot, all they can see
We travelled so far, we travelled so far
Boots on the loose, goose in a noose

Why all this envy and hate?
Shape me a tooth, to replace like a spoof
Still it looks real all the same
Still it looks real all the same

Let apes roam free
Let people be (Let people be)
What they are and are
Nine to to five ain't the same in the wild
Nine to to five ain't the same in the wild
Nine to to five ain't the same in the wild

Let apes roam free
Let people be (Let people be)
What they are and are
Nine to to five ain't the same in the wild
Nine to to five ain't the same in the wild
Nine to to five ain't the same in the wild

Washed up crows and unwashed clothes
The mile isn't done 'til you run through the hum
Empty shoes drowned by those fools
All together, bitter weather
It's the same as ever
It's the same as ever, when is never?

(Pecking, pecking)
This week we weep
Then back asleep we fall
Into the same old shoe
Into the same old shoes
You fall into the same old shoe
You fall into the same old shoe


03. Way Beyond The Fond Old River

You will never really know until
You've learnt to lead
Never understand until
You've sown the seed
You can gather information with
The will to read
But you'll never really know until
Youve sown the seed

We live and learn to fly away
Travel through the clouds to fly away
Thought to save as blessins somedays learnt
When tables turn and bridges soon then burn
While the moral mans making trees
From the gathered leaves
We gather round the fire and smoke to sea
For you will never know where some ideas can lead
You will never know until you've sown the seed, the sea

Way beyond the fond old river
(way beyond the fond old river)
Paint is bled to form the shiver
Shiver
(Shiver shiver shiver)
While the metal gathers moss
(While the metal gathers moss)
And you standing on the gloss, well

We seem to only really know of
These ways to feed
Microwave our meals the oranges
We peel
You can know the station by the sign
You read
But you'll never really know until
You've learnt to lead

We live and learn to fly away
Travel through the clouds to find your way
Thought to save as blessins somedays learnt
When thunder turns can blossom soon, be earned?
While the feral mans making trees
From the gathered leaves
We gathered round the fire and smoked the sea
For you will never know where some ideas can lead
You will never know until youve sown the seed

Way beyond the fond old river
(Way beyond the fond old river)
Paint is bled to form the shiver
Shiver
(Shiver shiver shiver)
While the metal gathers moss
(While the metal gathers moss)
And you standing on the gloss, well

We had, we had admired to fly away
We had, we had admired to fly away
Again
We had we had admired the flight to
Far away again
Now those lakes are stains
Drained and gone
The leaves they float and somedays
They do turn

Within that hole under sea
Way past the shell
Now you can see
Beyond those trees
And tears could be ridden
Ignore the din of pained paper clones
Though


04. Summer Rain

Well, I built you up
To be something that you were not
Something too good, something bright
Something too perfect, too right
Goodnight, now you're running out of Sight
Goodnight, say it once again

I built you up to be something you were not
Someone too good, too perfect
Too right, goodnight
Now these tears are out of sight
But once again you bring the summer rain
It hurts much less this way
You always, you always seem to say
You always seem to say
Then bring the summer rain

Feels like we're not meant to be two
But when I'm with you it feels like just
You and me (in a happy tree)
The waves of love around our beings
The energy, the summer rain
Well it didn't seem to smile on us those days
Now it seemed to smile on us those days

Distances make worlds so small

I built you up to be something you were not
Someone too good, too perfect
Too right, goodnight
Now these tears are out of sight
But once again you bring the summer rain
It hurts much less this way
You always, you always seem to say
You always seem to say
Then bring the summer rain

Like a friend, like a friend in a new
Lover (like a friend)
Like a friend, where's the friend in my
New lover (like a friend)
Like a friend in my new lover, my
Love grown fond of you

But I know there ain't a damn thing I can do
Everyday I've thought of you
Everyday, everyday, everyday I call
Then we try to walk but then we fall
Every step I seem to take and go
Without you it's just an empty wall

Like a friend, like a friend in a new
Lover (like a friend)
Like a friend, where's the friend in my
New lover (like a friend)
Like a friend in my new lover, my
Love grown fond of you

But I know there ain't a damn thing I can do
Everyday I've thought of you
Everyday, everyday, everyday I call
Then we try to walk but then we fall
Every step I seem to take and go
Without you it's just an empty wall

Feels like we're not meant to be two
But when I'm with you it feels like just
You and me (in a happy tree)
The waves of love around our beings
The energy, the summer rain
Well it didn't seem to smile on us those days
Now it seemed to smile on us those days


05. In This Light

When all the hail seems far away
In my sight
Like it won't ever rain here
In this light, in this light

Let me sit right by your side
In this light
Let me sit right there, sail
As the water lays under our sky

When all the hail seems so far away
In my sight
Just like it won't ever rain here

Let me sit right by your side
In this light
Just let me sit right there
Alone... on my own

In this light we sail
As the water lays under our sky

Let me sit right by your side
In this light
Let me sit right there, sail
As the water lays under our sky, sail
As the water lays under our sky


06. Sanguine Seas Of Bigotry

Sanguine seas of bigotry
Death in squandering fog
A feast for the king of serpents
The malice in the smog

He's wicked he's mad
Blood rag clad under his suit
This malice in the air
The stench of trembling boots

The wicked wind it whistles and gabbles in the rain
You hear the cried from the graveyard
The wicked wind it whistles and gabbles in the rain
You hear the cries from the graveyard
Then hide and wait for rain

The hideous days of malice
Sanguine cement torn sea
Tell me how to listen
Then tell me how to be

The Malice in this fog
Flaming desert smog
Law of the sod
This place is getting hotter
This place is getting hotter

Growing every day
Less for you and me
Sanguine seas of bigotry
Sowing misery
The tide has risen over me
Sanguine seas of bigotry
Run run run away
Try to swim and float away
Sanguine seas of bigotry
Wake up in the sea
Not the place you want to be
Sanguine seas of bigotry

What happened to the ones that came through?
What happened to the ones that came through?
Did they find a place to be?

Growing every day
Less for you and me
Sanguine seas of bigotry
Sowing misery
The tide has risen over thee
Sanguine seas of bigotry

It's always about the bigger clout
You've got to always heed your guard
So if you've got the short amount
Then I'll see you by the bar

Sanguine seas of bigotry
What happened to the ones who came through?
What happened to the ones who came through?
(You hear the cries from the graveyard)
The wicked wind whistles and gabbles in the rain
(You hear the cries from the graveyard)
You hear the cries from the graveyard
Then hide and wait for rain

The wicked wind it whistles and gabbles in the rain
You hear the cries from the graveyard
The wicked wind it whistles and gabbles in the rain
You hear the cries from the graveyard


07. Mermaid Slur

Is this the desperate mile?
Are the seagulls hungry still?
Did the pond run out of water?
Turn into a motorway?
Did the forest see itself slaughtered
And modelled into decay?

Did the kitten pur?
Did the mermaid slur?
I can't see a wind of wind of a way
We wonder then thunder
Winding road old cold abode
Under mountain snow and howling skies
Where it is grey but to survive
First you must be alive

Pinch your skin and look within
Find a thought and a fish finger
Baked beans upon your plate
It's gotten late again
Why did the wilderness weep tonight?
Do you know the way out?
Do you know the way out?


08. When The Moment's Gone

I heard your voice today
It echoed through my mind
I cant stand the thought of losing you
I'm so dumb these days are gerring so confused

I wish I could have the chance
To be with you lady again
Can't find the words I cant find the words
(Happiness lies without you)
Just know happiness
Lays with you and the birds
You and the birds
The birds, the birds
Singing on a summers morning

Why are you so far
So far away
So far
So far away?
Now the moments gone
The moments gone

Took so long to find you then you
Fly away again

(I heard your voice today)
I heard your voice today (it was on my)
It was on my answering machine
I played it back again and again (and I regret)
And I regret not listening more clearly
When I was drinking
Oh, the words you said
With a daintly little whisper
(With a dainty whisper)
With a dainty whisper, whisper

Sinking in you shand
I saw my heart still weeping
For your lure

You are the clover I have warmed
To the blossom always growing in your heart
Now I think I love you
I think I love you

Why are you so far so far away?
So far so far away
Now the moments gone
The moments gone
The moments gone
The moments gone

Look at the callendar
How long til I see her?
I got to plan
To see you in that distant land
Try to live
I want you to be here
You opened up so much
I wanted to come up and hug you

But your five thousand miles away
Up in the sky to have to fly away
From here, here the gravy smear

From here here the gravy smear
Just say whenever
Want to be with you now lady out of this
Gray climate
Too true
So take a look into the mirror
Shiver shiver vagabond!
Take a look at the state of the?
The beast in front of me now
How could you desire a beast like me?
A beast like me

So far away I can not take it
Feel alright? Feel alright? Feel alright?
I wanna try to walk out of
There's no ground beneath my feet now
Feel alright? Feel alright? Do you feel alright?
As we sail in through this dream of summer love?


09. Part Of The Friction

Yes, no, yes, no, maybe, no
All you're going to hear
In this world that rocks and rolls
Something mistaken
A dream taken from magazine fiction

I fear and so I turn
Wake up now listen
Nothing's like it should be
Well, now I've got a taste
Well now I've got a part of the friction

(Something I) Something I missed out on
Something I must have missed out on
Something I must have missed out on

As we fall astray
Trying to live through your games
This ride takes another turn
You can turn the bluest skies to grey

It's a new day, no much to talk about
Must be walking over a dead sea by now
It's a new day, wipe a small business out
They fall to faint and dry the paint, died

Watching still we find TV open
Middle-aged skin growing older
Becoming aware
Listen to the ones
Who make sense of the freak train
Dive then let me drive

Try to make them challenge you
Lights are falling
Death of a day, deader than day
Victory? Victory? Victory?
Death of a dead day
I fear and so I turn
I'm out here, one little piece of meat
Well now I've got a taste
It was nothing like I imagined it to be
We've decayed with fear
We can't see past the beer

As we fall astray
Trying to live through your games
This ride takes another turn
You say that you are here to stay
You can turn the bluest skies to grey

Well, if it isn't another vulturistc man
Feasting on the carrion
Through all sincerity and serenity
And goodwill
Is lost in a spin with you
When all you seem to do is count on others
Getting less than you
That's your aim, that's your game

You are all the same
You are all the same
You are all the same
You are all the same
You are all the same
You are all the same
Playing the game
Playing the game
Playing your games

So far you've taken away so we fall
See through the mountain of lies as we fall

Something I missed out on
Something I must have missed out on
Something I must have missed out on

As we fall astray
Trying to live through your games
This ride takes another turn
You can turn the bluest skies to grey


10. Where Do We Fall?

A question never left me through our days
Buried it all inside for this man you know
Who wanted it all then
And now this film is ending
The credits pass, this story's done
I'm still searching
Keeping it all away from you
I'm not so sure that
This silence will speak (anymore)

Left falling down again
'Cause this feeling wasn't there
But I leave it all
To estrange me from this place I've come to know

My palace of dreams, our fresh water streams
We ventured together, we ventured apart
A lake of love rain from above
I want to feel your zeal (To feel your zeal)
What shall I do? Be strong like you?
What's right, what's wrong, what's going on?

A question never left me through those days
But when it tasted stale
Everything really looked greener
Over the other side
Cause I was just clinging onto a moment past
That we could no longer sustain
I kept it all away from you
I'm not so sure that
This silence will speak (anymore)

Left falling down again
'Cause this feeling wasn't there
But I leave it all
To estrange me from this place I've come to know

Take my hand, my love, my dame
We could walk through the cranky lanes
But I lay and I sway in my submarine
On top of the world in a plastic ashtray
Well where do we go, and where do we fall?
Someone needs something and something needs all


11. Another Sinking Ship

Liars
Shape my frown
I see through you words
Stone done like a hound
Liars
Faceless clowns
I see through your herds
All swimming to the shore

Picaroon you come so soon
You've taken all I had
My tolerance echausted
Pain a picture only using

Lying to the faces that make you
A less lonesome man
Picturing a way of life where fear
And hate could not appear
Can it be? This life to lead
Well nothing seems to clear

What are we doing here?
Swamped in fear
What are we doing here?
Fear
Brings death. brings fear
What are we doing here?

Five thousand more lies are laying in the mist
Not suitably equipped
Lesson of the day you grey betray
Lesson of the day lesson of the day
Of the day
You only betray you only betray
Lesson of the day
You only betray you only betray

Was it a so called man
With a so cold plan
Well I don't want to be another
Television lamb, television lamb
Television lamb

Fear (brings death brings fear)
What are we doing here?
Swamped in fear
What are we doing here?
Fear
Brings us death and then that makes
More fear
Is this how its mean to be for you and me?

Lying to my face again you never
Found yourself

Something telling me that
Things may have gone too far
Warning the next hell ball
In your quagmire

Fear of the fear of the fear of the
Fear of the fear of the fear of the
Fear of the fear of the fear of the fear
Picturing the ship you sank
Try to make me walk the plank

Picaroon you come so soon
You've taken all I had
My tolerence now exhausted
Paint a picture only using

Lying to the faces that make you
A less lonesome man
Picturing a way of life where fear and
Hate could not appear
Can it be? This life to lead well
Nothing seems too clear

What are we doing here?
Swamped in fear
What are we doing here?
Fear
Brings us death and then makes
More fear
Is this how it's meant to be?


12. As The Earth Spins Round

I can't make out any roads
When everything's just spinning round
Round and round
Quick stop and think above those clouds
Swim in the sea you believe cowards tranquility

Everything I seemed to see was grey dumb unfused
Well it's raining now can you feel
The tears of now? Now? Now? Weeping now?
You wanna say why youre waking in a well for?
Best look up soon before it all freezes over

Why are we wondering?
Why are we wondering?
Why are we slaughtering?
Why are we wondering?
Why are we wondering?
Who is the alien?

Well it's hard to row when the boat
Is stuck and it is snowing
And I cant make out any roads
When everythings just spinning round

I can see you there
In the nothing snow
Well it's all dark now

I can't make out any roads
When everything just spinning round
Round and round
Quick stop and think above the cloud
Swim in the sea you believe towards tranquility

Everything I see was grey dumb unfused
Well its raining now I can feel the tears of now
Now venting passion and emotion
Keeps us spinning round
And when that is gone its a grey numb song

Why are we wondering?
Why are we wondering?
Why are we slaughtering?
Why are we wondering?
Why are we wondering?
Who is the alien?

I can see you there
In the nothing snow
Well it's all dark now
But I looked into your eyes
And I saw all wasnt right
You were chasing
You were chasing painted dreams

They sow snow
They don't want you to wake up
What? What?
Whatever!
Waking up the same fold don't grow
It's the same as before the same as before
As the earth spins round
Were all wailing on the ground
What for?

They turn the page so
They turn the page so (why?)
I turn the page so
They turn the page so (why?)

You turn the page so
I turn the page so
You turn the page so
I turn the page so

You turn the page so
They turn the page so
You turn the page so
They turn the page so
