Ready To Go 02:48
Ready To Go Are we having a power cut? Are your lights still on? (Are your lights still on?) Let’s head to the power station Find out what’s really going on (I'd like to know) Keep watching the horizon but it don’t come Keep holding back the idle tears of want They say you’re not ready to go Tearing your heart right out They just say we’ll let you know (We'll let you know) And was it an accident? The way they served you up whole (They served you whole) Keep watching the horizon but it don’t come Keep holding back the idle tears of want They say you’re not ready to go

Leave It Alone Say you made it top of your class Well somebody had to finish last If you think that you are better than them I don’t think that you’ve learnt anything If your heart isn’t in it man maybe you should go I don’t know what the future holds any more But I can’t leave it alone You pointed to an apogee We began to dream those golden dreams Now you’re gone but we won’t bottle it up Drink your poison but it’s not enough Started up - we’re in motion now and we can’t let go I don’t know what the future holds any more But I can’t leave it alone If your heart isn’t in it man maybe you should go I don’t know what the future holds any more But I can’t leave it alone

The Chemicals I detect a bump in the road up ahead Maybe I turned right when I should have turned left If there’s a stumbling block then I’ll fall over it every single time I see a girl with a pretty face She’s another chance to make a mistake You’d think I’d have enough of the chances we take But I fall for it again I’ve got a funny feeling about this I’m set alight by your poisonous kiss, girl - uh-oh I’ve got a funny feeling about this Step away from those memories and give in to this Surely just a moments bliss The chemicals, they rot your brain and they drive you wild They’re everywhere I seem to turn I want them all I’ve got a tingling feeling in my spine Oh Lord I’d like to believe that that feeling was mine But deep down, we know, how far from divine Is the end of every line Some will shirk for fear the road less travelled is rough Others suffer, searching for a deeper cut Believing that the pain that they are feeling is love For them the morning’s tough I’ve got a funny feeling about this Another night and we know that we’re taking a risk I’ve got a funny feeling about this “Step away from that ledge boy, give me a kiss” She knew that I would fall for it The chemicals, they rot your brain and they drive you wild They’re everywhere I seem to turn I want them all

Mess We're In With your permission I will walk away now I’ve seen too much to make me stay I’m growing tired of the games you play girl You stayed the same but the rules have changed We were young and we were foolish Made mistakes like anyone would I’m your lap-dog, struck by cupid Under your spell, I could not see it You owe money over both sides of town I see that trouble’s coming - it’s tracking you down Used your beauty like a work of art But you can’t see that it’s falling apart You went too far now there’s no turning back Your façade is crumbling starting to crack How’d it get to be so serious? Can’t you see... what a mess we’re in? We were young and we were foolish Now we’re older - no excuses Tried to tell you - you won’t listen Can I leave with, your permission? You went too far now there’s no turning back Your façade is crumbling starting to crack How’d it get to be so serious? Can’t you see... what a mess we’re in? You always thought I would be there for you But this is crazy baby that’s why we’re through How’d it get to be so serious? Can’t you see...?

Poison Apple 03:58
Poison Apple Old summer days seem to fade Hanging outside in the rain With an old photograph of my friend Who passed away long ago And now it’s far too late To bring him back again The way I always dreamt Well I’m sorry baby, I’m not cut out for this Dip the apple in the brew Let the sleeping death seep right through My mind’s not right now Makes me hunger for a bite All of the secrets they will be kept I’ve got no loose lips I just refused to repent In this old fashioned world We don’t care who gets hurt How could I be so naive I gave myself away So now they’ll punish me As my body starts to change I know I’ll never run again The cracks they’ll start to show My mind it starts to slow Well I’m sorry baby, I’m not cut out for this Dip the apple in the brew Let the sleeping death seep right through My mind’s not right now Makes me hunger for a bite All of the secrets they will be kept I’ve got no loose lips I just refused to repent In this old fashioned world We don’t care who gets hurt Well I'm sorry baby, I’m not cut out for this I’ve been trying hard but lately It all seems so poisonous Dip the apple in the brew Let the sleeping death seep right through My mind’s not right now Makes me hunger for a bite All of the secrets they will be kept I’ve got no loose lips I just refused to repent In this old fashioned world We don’t care who gets hurt

Stowaways 03:34
Stowaways There'll be a light outside My window one day And if they've come to take me away I'll ask them to find some space So the two of us can stow aboard And leave for a better place It's getting hard to bear You're reading it every day Everybody's talking about the end of the world Just like it's yesterday's news And there's nothing we can do about it at all So we run away And we will stow away upon the first ship out of here We'll float into outer space, yeah we'll disappear And the world seems very small now from the window Of this vessel and we don't know where they're taking us You're having second thoughts I can read it in your eyes Don't be fooled by the government When they buy another landslide victory All they want to do is bleed the planet dry And the rich ones will survive Surprise, surprise And we will stow away upon the first ship out of here We'll float into outer space, yeah we'll disappear And the world seems very small now from the window Of this vessel and we don't know where they're taking us at all And we will stow away upon the first ship out of here We'll float into outer space, yeah we'll disappear And the world seems very small now from the window Of this vessel and we don't know where they're taking us at all

Fragile Creatures Open your eyes And you will see it all for the first time We all come out into a blinding light It's no surprise we cry It really matters what I say to her this time But no strong words will come to mind Don't wanna rock your boat no Momma So we don't and we say Bye-bye But we don't know why Given up trying to work out what is on your mind Oh no-no-no we just can't decide We don't emerge full formed Our heads are too large From the very start We're fragile creatures Everybody's trying to put ideas in your head Well I'm just say here playing devil's advocate Bye-bye But we don't know why Given up trying to work out what is on your mind Oh no-no-no we just can't decide Oh no, we just can't decide We don't emerge full formed Our heads are too large From the very start We're fragile creatures

Into The Night There is a world outside your door and it's waiting So why don't you just step outside There is a heart inside your chest and it's beating So what have you been waiting for Why don't you open up that door I would if I could But this big old heart of mine has been sucked out dry I thought I liked the taste but now I have lost my appetite Please can we escape into the night? So I'll go from bar to bar where I'll be drinking So I don't have to think at all and a solitary soul will always end up sinking You'll drown with that frown And this big old heart of mine has been sucked out dry I thought I liked the taste but now I have lost my appetite Please can we escape into the night? You're not fighting for survival The city's not that cruel Look in the eyes of your rival and see that You're not so different after all I would if I could I would if I could But this big old heart of mine has been sucked out dry I thought I liked the taste but now I have lost my appetite Please can we escape into the night?

You Don't Get It He lives alone beyond the suburbs in a fantasy home He wakes at five they gave him money but they've stolen his life He sits alone in his office on his company throne He eyes the phone but he knows there's no one to call He chairs the board but he still don't get it (still don't get it) You still don't get it at all, one life and you've lived it all He walks the walk but he hasn't an original thought Aims for the top but sometimes it's just not in your blood Unsatisfied by the endless routine of your life? It's not success if you're living a life you'll regret We're not impressed that you still don't get it (still don't get it) You still don't get it at all, one life and you've lived it all Still don't get it at all, who are you living for? I gave my heart and soul for the love of rock'n'roll I thought that you should know I gave my heart and soul for the love of rock'n'roll I thought that you should know I gave my heart and soul for the love of rock'n'roll the love of rock'n'roll

Body In The Boot I've been waiting for you here Ever since you disappeared Sitting in my room so dark Watching dust settle upon every thing that I've got Are you a body in some boot? Is this a magic trick, is it just a ruse? I sought but never found the truth Within those lies you span a web for me and you But it couldn't last Well I must confess baby I was real surprised When I saw you a live Don't lie, you thought I was dead as well There's no world for you and I and now I know the reason why I pricked a rose, got fingers full of thorns And though it hurts like hell I always wanted more Then it's over in a flash Nothing through the looking glass When I saw you at the airport I was real surprised To see you alive Don't lie, you thought I was dead as well Don't lie, you wanted me dead as well If you'd had the chance Living in a fantasy, trapped in a dream Don't apologise for it I've got nothing else So I keep you alive This lie, without it I'm dead inside This lie, without it I'm dead inside And now you know the truth

One Bit At A Time Listen up my friend I don't even understand it That picture in your head it's never quite as they say Dried up memories they seem to taunt me every day Is it a symptom or disease of the comeback trail? I've become tradition: a man from yesterday Walking down the street with my once familiar face This is how it goes, this is how it goes One bit at a time, one bit at a time One bit at a time, one bit at a time You wear the same clothes as you did when you were much younger Pulling on your boots each day cos you still got the hunger Didn't look the other way, don't say I didn’t see you suffer Just a memory and it starts to fade again I've become tradition: a man from yesterday Walking down the street with my once familiar face This is how it goes, this is how it goes One bit at a time, one bit at a time One bit at a time, one bit at a time They say you didn't suffer long Must say that doesn’t comfort none You're gone and that's just how it goes I've become tradition: a man from yesterday Walking down the street with my once familiar face This is how it goes, this is how it goes One bit at a time, one bit at a time One bit at a time, one bit at a time

Grace 04:14
Grace Grace, where you going now? If you walk out that door I'll just follow you out Because we've got a lot to talk about We just might as well get to it now But Grace says, “What's going on?” “Who are these people here? They don't belong” Yes we've known for a while that some thing's wrong When you don't recognise your child But you know the words to the songs you used to know Soft and slow, that's how we go We live each moment how that moment must go We can't work it out if there's nothing to know We can't help you out if there's nowhere to go When I lose my mind I hope it don't go... so... slow Grace, she don't know me now When she tries to talk the words don't come out Every once in a while she'll recognise me Feels like in those moments she's alive

Almost Home 03:16
Almost Home I've been hoping I have that it all won't end soon I've been watching the skies desperately There's a chance we might make it Better prepare for the worst Times they are changing Together we'll prove our worth Keep a hold of me, please don't let me go No more worrying almost home All the steps you must take to keep away from harm All of the smiles that you fake They make me love you a little more I've been hoping soon they will leave you alone I've been dreaming and tomorrow never comes Keep a hold of me, please don't let me go No more worrying almost home Keep a hold of me please don't let me go No more worrying almost home (keep a hold of me, keep a hold of me) Please don't let me go, almost home

Number 7 02:49
Number 7 (When Love Is Not Enough) Baby you and I can't seem to get it right Tried so hard to be everything you need Things ain't working out well you seem to have your doubts This is not the life for me, too much uncertainty When love is not enough, time's have been tough But you can't get away... can't get away I've been thinking you know something's been missing You seem so far away getting further every day Shadows from the past seem to cast us in the dark And there's no light to see so what's it going to be? When love is not enough, time's have been tough Can't shake the feeling, that I should be leaving When love is not enough, time's have been tough But you can't get away... can't get away When love is not enough, time's have been tough Can't shake the feeling, that I should be leaving When love is not enough, time's have been tough But you can't get away... can't get away
