Track Name: Waterfall
When faces surround you and seem to see through you
Show everything, show everything
Just try to forget them they’ll go if you let them
Don’t know anything, don’t know anything

Just blow through the static it’s all automatic
You’re thinking too much, you’re thinking too much
And don’t concentrate let the force of it claim you
Are you feeling enough, are you feeling enough?

As Sarasvati plays, the smoke lifts from the haze
I listen for her call from down the waterfall
Her silver melodies are rising on the steam
I listen to her call from down the waterfall

Jab lowg tumhare pas ho nazarshanass
Dekane do unhey, dekane do unhey
Bus bhool jao ke koi dekhta hai
Jesay tumhaien kuch yad nahinhai

Bus sab phook do har ek ruut key silsiley ko
Aur ziada mat socho, aur ziada mat socho
Ab ghor mat khar must ho iis jharney ki dhara mein bekhar
Aur mat soch ehsaas kar, aur mat soch ehsaas kar

As Sarasvati plays, the smoke lifts from the haze
I listen for her call from down the waterfall
Her silver melodies are rising on the steam
I listen to her call from down the waterfall
Track Name: Afterglow
In the morning the unforgiving sunlight tears the night apart
Then in the evening, a day of living later, you’re bruised and battlescarred

When the truth hits you, she softens the blow
And you still fall down like you always did, but she never lets you hit the floor...

The world melts down into my pillow
I’m wading into the Afterglow

The seed that I’ve sown, now it has grown and it curls its vines around me
The flowers bloom, their thick perfume intoxifies me

But she breathes new oxygen
And the mouth to mouth sends us flying south to where the weather’s warm for sure

The world melts down into my pillow
I’m wading into the Afterglow
Track Name: Temporary
She’s panic buying,
walking down the aisle that she feels identified in
It’s number seven,
where the colour smears into photographs of heaven

Don’t raise your voice if you’re talking to me
We’re only Temporary

She plays the numbers,
seconds hiss away until a day is just a flicker
Her goddess slumbers,
waiting in her dream until the memory is quicker

Don’t raise your hands it’s easy can’t you see
We’re only temporary
Track Name: Gloria
I remember that kiss, It was a moment of pure bliss
My stomach went tight, My head set alight, And I thought “hey what’s this?”
I remember your arms, And a few other bodyparts,
And I knew I’d make sure, That nothing of yours, Would go unexplored

And I sang...
“I don’t need no food, Just give me Gloria
And I don’t need no music, When I’m with her”

I remember your dad, Cos he had a skinhead
And he had a tattoo, That the years had turned blue, It said “don’t fuck with me”

I remember your house, In the yard was a kitchen sink
And your mum would make tea, And Benson’s for three, And tip me the wink

And I sang...
“I don’t need no food, Just give me Gloria
And I don’t need no music, When I’m with her”

I remember your kiss punch, Cos you nearly brought back my lunch
But the most painful part, Was I knew that you’d hate me for evermore

But I think of you still, In fact you’re actually in my will
I leave you my car, It’s been pretty far, And it doesn’t like hills

And I sing...
“I don’t need no food, Just give me Gloria
And I don’t need no music, When I’m with her”
Track Name: Loveproof
They live in a lighthouse
Where they keep each other safe and warm
And wait the night out
Til the morning crashes on the shore

She finds the deepest grooves
that cannot be resisted
But you can’t force a man to listen

Loveproof

He says he loves her
And he knows he’ll mean it some day soon
The stars above her
couldn’t make her feel any smaller

So she will write a song where
they can live together
She’ll weave a tangled tune
to bind forever

Loveproof

You can’t lead him
Track Name: Surrender
Blind, blind, I’m throwing punches in the dark
Blind, blind, I’m throwing punches in the dark
You launch a heart attack, And my defense is blown apart

You found the secret I can’t keep
You found my weakness underneath
I surrender

Run, run, a rivers running out your mouth,
Run, run, a river runs right out your mouth,
You love to push me in, Just so that you can fish me out

You found the secret I can’t keep
You found my weakness underneath
I surrender

Please, please, there must be something I can say
Please, please, there must be something I can say
You sting me tenderly, Then take the antidote away
Track Name: Rescue Song
From a sinking ship
From an evil scientist
From a shaking lip
I will save you

From a burning car
From a dream that haunts you
From another’s charm
I will save you

From a love grown cold
From the endless road you’re on
From ever growing old
I will save you

I will rescue you
Or I’ll do my best to
Track Name: The Weather Machine
It’s high noon at the Last Chance Saloon
Second home to racketeers
Where magic man sells his masterplan
He’s a global pioneer

He says “Villains roam towards our homes
And they’ll burn away the clouds,
But my new invention, my weather engine
Is already eastward bound”

Terraform the desert into paradise
With our weather machine
We’ll perform the necessary sacrifice
With our weather machine

So the giant device spewing liquid ice
Is flown to foreign lands
Where the locals curse their forever thirst
And the neverending sands

But the rain falls hot with a kilowatt
Of the magic man’s bloodlust
And funny little rivers form
Black ribbons in the dust

Terraform the desert into paradise
With our weather machine
We’ll perform the necessary sacrifice
With our weather machine

Spinning words at the hungry herds
He’s twisting a new truth
It’s the magic man and his faithful gang
Dreaming of eternal youth

He says “Villains roam towards our homes
And they’ll burn away the clouds
But worry not cos I wrote the plot
And I know how it turns out”
Track Name: What's Left For You?
On a train, the landscape is a rush-a grey,
And tears are streaming down the window pain,
I contemplate nothing

Old man sits down and faces me,
He’s got a smile, I think it’s aimed at me,
He says “I know your problem,”

“If music’s for dancing,
And magic’s for the spellbound,
And love is for lovers,
What’s left for you?”

I ask “What the hell’s that supposed to mean?”
He says “Listen man, you’re the door now here’s the key,
Just open up and you’re free,”

“You wonder why you never understand,
And everybody seems to have their masterplans,
But you don’t know nothing”

“If music’s for dancing,
And magic’s for the spellbound,
And love is for lovers,
What’s left for you?”

But his words they seemed like mockery,
And nobody’s allowed to teach me,
nobody can teach me nothing.
