The perception of Johnny Punter 08:37
Dick/Wilson
Just another nigger, a spooky piece of white trash 

Just another jewboy, spic, mick, yid, raghead motherfucker living on the planet

(USA version: Just another wake up, a hostage of a sunrise
Just another petrified, ashen faced motherfucker living on the planet )

Just before it kicks in

Just like a silver bullet
Take a good look at yourself in the mirror and tell me that it's worth it
Said it'll never happen, you said you'd never get caught out
You settled in a habit, so now you're Mr Fixit
Just another alien, living on the planet
Living on the planet, living on the planet
It's just one of those days when you know that something's gonna happen

Another betrayal, lose another friend
You know you never need them, on your own until the bitter end
Just another pick up, just another kill, someone else's daughter, someone else's girl
Living on the planet
We are in another world, Living on the planet we are, we are
And you know there's some days when you feel that something's gonna happen
This is one of those days which you know that something's gonna happen
And something's gonna happen

"Somedays you just wake up and you don't have any real sense of direction,
you just can't find the will to get up and go through with it all, your next allotted 24 hour slice of destiny.
There's just a bad vibe and rather than a world of opportunities,
it's full of threats and just too many negative variables.
I'd noticed these houses way up in the hills and I tried to imagine what it would have been
like living up there isolated from the world, every night watching the fires crawl slowly down the valley,
and knowing that one night it was gonna be your turn for the visit.
I tried to imagine what it would have been like hiding in a cellar with your family and the fear hoping
that when they do come, when the dogs don't bark, and the silence is around you,
you hope that they burn the whole house around your ears
and they don't discover you hiding in the cellar because you've got nowhere to go,
and you know that one day that something's gonna happen.
There's one day, just one day."

Just another village burning in the hills
I saw it on the TV, just another thrill
Someone else's problems, someone else's grief
Someone else's children, living on the planet
We are in another world living on the planet
We are in another world living on the planet, we are, we are

It's just one of those places that never exist till you've been there
It's just one of those things that you never will see till you wake up
And you know that somewhere there's somebody that's out there who thinks like you do
And you hope that today is the day that it's all gonna happen for you
And you know there's somedays when you feel that something's gonna happen
This is one of those days which you know that something's gonna happen

Goldfish & clowns 06:36
Dick/Wilson
There are vampires in the park Mawgojzeta 

But I only hear the sound of dancing bears
They're shooting stars in Warsaw Mawgojzeta
Mawgojzeta do you care?

Do you believe that anything that I could say would sort your life out?
What's the difference?
Could you trust anybody with your heart except yourself?
What's the difference?

Between sunsets and dawn, kings, queens and pawns, goldfish and clowns.
Between what's right and wrong can a love still grow strong
What's the difference?

There are werewolves in these streets Mawgojzeta
But you only hear me howling at the moon
There's betrayals in the Tarot Mawgojzeta is it me, or is it you?

Do you believe that everything I say is really true?
Well, what's the difference?
Don't you think everything's against us, that there's much too much to lose
Well, what's the difference?

Could you see everything I should have been and everything I could be
What's the difference, between sunsets and dawn, kings, queens and pawns, gold fish and clowns?
Between what's right and wrong can a love still grow strong
What's the difference?
What is the difference?

There are vampires in the park Mawgojzeta
But I only hear the sound of dancing bears
They're shooting stars in Warsaw Mawgojzeta, Mawgojzeta do you care?
I know you believe that everything will work out alright, what's the difference?
But is it a love or this a life I need?
That's the difference

Between sunsets and dawn, kings, queens and pawns
What's the difference?
Between goldfish and clowns can a love still be found
Well, what's the difference? What is the difference?
Between playing away and playing at home
Well, what's the difference? What is the difference?
What is the difference?
That's the difference, that's the difference that is between sunsets and dawns
Kings, queens and pawns, goldfish and clowns

Change of heart 03:41
Dick/Boult
Maybe it's you or maybe it's me, maybe it's just the weather 

I just can't decide I can't make up my mind
Tomorrow seems like forever

It's just a change of heart that's all it is
It's just a change of heart that's all it is
I'm just falling apart, as a matter of fact that is all it is
That's all it is, that's all it is. Just a change of heart
That's all it is

Maybe it's time, it's maybe too late, I just can't believe it's over
If you just walk away, turn your back on me now
Tomorrow will be forever

It's just a change of heart that's all it is
It's just a change of heart that's all it is
I'm just falling apart, as a matter of fact that is all it is
That's all it is, that's all it is. Just a change of heart
That's all it is

As the springtides shift the sands swelled by winter snow
And the summer green melts to autumn gold
I'm a man for every season but I live from day to day
Is that what you want? Is that all you want?
Is that all it is?

It's just a change of heart that's all it is
It's just a change of heart that's all it is
I'm just falling apart, as a matter of fact that is all it is
That's all it is, that's all it is. Just a change of heart
That's all it is

At the end of the day please let me stay you know we belong together
I'll promise you now as I promised you then
Tomorrow will be forever

What colour is God? 05:50
Dick/Wilson
I was thinking about thinking about thinking about thinking I was thinking.

Contemplating situations and the visions blew my mind.
In the gutter I was crawling as the shells just kept on falling all around me.

(Chorus): What colour is God? Why can't you tell me, can't you tell me?
What colour is God? Why can't you tell me, can't you tell me?
What colour is God? Why can't you tell me, can't you tell me?

As the library was burning and the pages kept on turning back in history.
As the doorways they were full of refugees and lonely people staring at me, they were asking of me.
What colour is God?
What colour is God?
What colour is God?

No matter what I say or do, it never looks like making any difference.
Don't keep on looking down at me as if I don't exist as if I'm not here
Don't focus all your anger and resentment that you have,
Don't blame it on me, don't blame it on me.

(Chorus):

Black brother in an open sports car pulled over by suspicious officer,
Uniform man got a nervous partner,
Weapon was pulled from a shoulder holster.
White jogger see the roadside gangsta,
Heart beat just a little bit faster,
Rasta man speaking in the island patois,
Gonna give you the righteous answer.

Why can't you tell me, can't you tell me?
What colour is God?

(Chorus):

No matter what I say or do it never looks like making any difference
Don't focus all your anger and resentment that you have
Don't blame it on me, don't blame it on me

(Chorus):

Please, please, please tell me.
Please, please, please tell me.
What colour is God?

Tara 05:12
Dick/Paterson
I want to be there in the morning, I want to wake up by your side 

If I can make it back I'll be there, if I can catch the early flight
I'll bring you dragon's teeth from silver beaches, shells from Africa
I'll give you China dolls and silken shawls, orchids for your hair
Treasures drowned in sunken galleons, jewels from desert caves when I get there

We'll see each other in the morning when the sun comes up
We'll see each other in the morning when the sun comes up
In the morning

I'll guard you from the monsters on the TV
From the pirates in the corners of your dreams
I'll keep you from the cold and safe from trolls, from the bad men while you play
I'll hunt for crocodiles and snakes with smiles I'll keep them
Far away from your innocence in all it's wonder

We'll see each other in the morning when the sun comes up
We'll see each other in the morning when the sun comes up
In the morning, in the morning, when the sun comes up

Jungle ride 07:34
Dick/Boult
"The car finally burned out around three.

The blue beacon of a silent patrol car threw new shadows into the street
turning the window into a flickering monitor screen.
I'd seen the kids torch the vehicle before I left on a nightly surfing run to a cybersex site in Chile.
It wasn't as if they were getting rid of prints, everyone knew it was them.
They didn't give a shit. They just wanted to see the flames, to throw a bit of light on a situation.
I looked up the hill at the spread of the estate.
The streetlights glowed like campfires of an army on the eve of battle
or fireflies trapped in the canopy of an immense jungle.
Jungle, young mental jungle
Here in the jungle, in the jungle"

Where men don't cry and husbands lie and you never have to justify a kickin'
When mates jump in to save your skin if a chib is ever pulled out in a square go

Jungle ride, jungle ride tell me when it's over
Jungle ride, jungle ride tell me when it ends
Oh here she comes round again, here she comes round again
Here she comes round again, here she comes, here she comes

"The glazed eyes of porcelain clowns stare skywards at clouds of goldfish madly circling
their own silent plastic worlds,
high above the children who stuff ping pong balls like pills in the mouths of slowly rotating heads.

"Intentions true as the arrow's flight
Wins a cuddly toy to while away an evening
Outside this ring of light he'll claim his prize
She'll sport lovebites just to prove to all he's been there."

Jungle ride, jungle ride tell me when it's over
Jungle ride, jungle ride tell me when it ends
Oh here she comes round again, here she comes round again
Here she comes round again, here she comes, here she comes.

"I crept along the edges of the parade, staying glued to the shadows
where the dogs slept uneasily on their chains under the caravans.
I followed the drums and the pulsing light until I came across a clearing
in the centre of which was the attraction.
And then I saw her, an angel in a chariot, her hair trailing behind her like the tail of a comet.
And I knew that she was mine. I knew that we were destined to leave this place together.
We didn't belong to this carnage and the knowledge of escape was the only thing keeping me sane
But for now I could only watch and wait for this was an arena I dare not enter"

"On the rim of the machine the animals had gathered
Big cats at a waterhole waiting on the weak and wounded to stagger into their territory
so they could exercise some violence and feed their starving reputations
No climbdown in this standoff with the world
They already know that they can never win the war but in this battle they're gonna do some damage
The pack will follow the stragglers into the dawn. Young mental jungle"

Jungle ride, jungle ride tell me when it's over
Jungle ride, jungle ride, tell me when it ends
Jungle ride, jungle ride, tell me when it ends
Here she comes round again, here she comes round again
Here she comes round again, here she comes, here she comes

Worm in a bottle 06:24
Dick/Boult
When you're down to the last skin

And the limelight splutters to darkness in the death of a Zippo
At the backstage door the last fan has long disappeared
With a plastic bag stuffed full of memories
If only you'd signed them, if only to testify, if only to recognise that he existed
That for a moment he stood there
Side by side in the gutter on the hard cold shoulder of destiny

You say never again this is the end and it's all gonna change you're determined this time.
Year after year you pretend it's for real and it's all gonna change you're determined this time
Well happy birthday to me

When you're the worm in the bottle
You're the last one to leave and there's nowhere to go to
And the minicab driver politely suggests you go home
If you could only remember, just where that's at
Just where you been, just where it went wrong
You'll eventually find it

You say never again this is the end and it's all gonna change you're determined this time
Year after year you pretend it's for real and it's all gonna change you're determined this time
Well happy birthday to me

"When you're down to the end line and they're writing you up and writing you off and it feels just like an obituary
You feel it's all over. You want to drive on down to the beach
And just keep on swimming. But you're still treading water"

You say never again this is the end and it's all gonna change you're determined this time
Year after year you pretend it's for real and it's all gonna change you're determined this time
Well happy birthday to me

Happy Birthday

Brother 52 06:03
Dick/Wilson
Doc: "Tattoo Shop"

Fish: "Hi Doc"
Doc: "Hey Fish, what are you doin'?"
Fish: "If you don't mind, we're gonna record this. Is that cool?"
Doc: "Oh that's cooler 'n hell. Hell yeah, 52's biggest dream man.
You know his biggest dream was, me and him go party with you."

On the trail of torn-out twisters, two angels on a mission came
Dust devils danced before them in the path of the hurricane.
On the road to Oklahoma, through the flatlands from L.A.
From the shadows in the valley, from a country where the lizards play.
While they drove they kept the radio on, why don't you singalong, singalong, singalong.

Tattoo, tattoo, tattoo, tattoo, tattoo, tattoo, tattoo, tattoo Brother 52
Tattoo, tattoo, tattoo, tattoo, tattoo, tattoo, tattoo, tattoo Brother 52
I don't think so.

A man stands behind his shadow, a man stands behind his words.
These men are together with family to defend their rights in another man's world.
Most people stood against them, most people disagreed
With the need for all those weapons in our safe, secure society.
Paint the words and the pictures on another man's skin
We are lover, warrior, magician kings.


Doc:"Fuckin' brilliant, man.
OK, here's what happened. 52 barred the door shut from the inside.
A gunfight started on the front porch. 52 shot back.
You know...they come into his home with it, so he's protecting himself.
The guy inside the house blew his brains out. Yeah, they made it look like he killed himself.
But, no one believes he would, 'cause he's not that kind of man.
That's all, I think, he wasn't afraid of death.
You know, he believed in something to die for, that's what he did."

Some say he had it coming, others say he was sole to blame
But who says they've got the rights if any at all to blow the brothers away.
A man got a right to wonder, a man got a right to dream,
Without looking over his shoulder to choose the manner of the life he leads.
One man's thoughts on another man's skin
We are lover, warrior, magician kings.

Doc: "What they have done, was they've come in and murdered him, for his bombs and his ammunition.
Just like that Waco Texas or any of these other things, over here in the United States.
Anybody that's stockpiling firearms and ammunitions is a threat to the government,
so the government wages war against us.
They tortured him, he went out but I'm sure he stood up like he was supposed to, you know?
They smashed all the rings shut on his fingers with a hammer.
It was all an orchestrated plan, man.
The more.. the closer I was getting to it.. to the truth,
the more they got everybody looking at me as being the guy that pulled the trigger.
And what they did when they killed 52, is they broke the whole family up.
That's exactly what they wanted to do.
They wanted to break all of us up."

Sunsets on empire 06:54
Dick/Wilson
And then it was over and we took our applause 

We passed the peace pipe and thought no more
About the scenes that were missing, about the lines we had crossed
And we smiled at each other and knew that the moment was lost

I let you snuff out the candles, I let you blow out the flame
And I knew that this time it would never be the same
The smiles you had wavered, tears welled in your eyes
And I looked and I knew that this magic it was only a sign
For Sunsets on Empire it was only a dream
I knew that it was broken when I heard you scream
I know you can't believe it. It meant nothing at all
And we looked at each other and we smiled and the moment was gone
Sunsets on Empire is this really the end
Sunsets on Empire left with a friend
Could have been a lover, could have been a wife
But when it comes right down to it all I want is a life
Just a life

You said it never mattered. You said it's just a thrill
You couldn't beat it. Another bitter pill
It never was a habit. A one off just for sure
You never really thought it out but I hoped that one time
That you'd come back for more

Sunsets on Empire that's where I am
Sunsets on Empire that's all we have
To face a new beginning when you're so close to the end
And you looked at me gently and smiled
Would you still be my friend?

You started to smile
Is this really the end?
Is this really the end?
Sunsets on Empire
The sun sets on Empire

Say it with flowers 04:15
Dick/Wilson/Bowness
We could talk for hours and we do about nothing 

And avoid talking about anything that could cause us problems
that we couldn't ignore, and have to talk about, to sort something out
We got to keep talking, keep talking

So we're talking, and that's something
I'm really happy that we're talking
It's sure to get us somewhere, make it better
And then we're sorted just as long as we keep talking
Everything's gonna be alright

I got secrets then you know that
You've got secrets I want to know about
But if you want to know what I know
That you know then, we got to start talking
Let's be honest. We can't ignore it. Keep talking

When I look into your eyes I don't know what to say to you
When I'm standing face to face, I don't know what to say to you
They said say it with flowers so I said it with flowers
I sent you short red roses, short red roses
Everything's gonna be alright

We've been talking for hours, so have we got somewhere?
Can we say it's all worked out, it's all ok?
Let's go to bed, I'm tired, to be honest
I just want to go to sleep, I'm tired
Let's talk about it in the morning, let's talk about it in the morning
To be honest, I'm tired
I'm tired
