BECAUSE YOU LOVE ME BLIND FAITH
Because you love me
It doesnít make everything alright
It doesnít make everything alright
Because you want me
It doesnít make everything alright

Cos itís alright to kick me when Iím down
Push me around
Spit upon the ground that I walk on
But all Iím saying
You know I love you donít you
You know I canít live without you
But I donít know at all
I donít know at all
Iíve heard this all before
I wonít take this any more

Because youíre sorry
It doesnít make everything alright
It doesnít make everything alright
So believe me
It wonít make everything alright

Is it alright to kick me when Iím down
Push me around
Spit upon the ground that I walk on
But all Iím saying
You know I love you donít you
You know I canít live without you
But I donít know at all
I donít know at all
Iíve heard this all before
I wonít take this anymore

Well, all Iím saying
You know I love you donít you
You know I canít live without you
But I donít know at all
I donít know at all
Iíve heard this all before
I canít take this anymore
Touch the Virgin Mary
Say another rosary
Follow in the Lenten procession
Cleanse yourself with confession
Have another novena
In the month of November
Open your eyes and see

Light a penny candle
Light a faithful candle
Light a faithful candle
Light a hopeless candle
And see through our blind faith

Have another vigil
As an act of good will
Pray to a statue
That's covered in gold
Pray for our forgiveness
Pray for our souls
Open your eyes and see

BRING DOWN THE BEAST PLACEHOLDER
This man is bigger than me
But only physically
This man could break me in two
If he wanted to
This man I smarter than I
But only I know why

(chorus)

Just one smile from you
Can bring down that beast
Bring down that beast
Bring down that beast
This man is louder than me
Only verbally
This man's more threatening than me
To frighten me
This man is braver than me
But only I know why

(repeat chorus)

This man's more powerful than I
But only for a while
This man's a brazen show-off
And a mental dwarf
This man could break me six
Just for fun

CALL ME BLUE CLUMP OF TREES
What a great world we all live in
Even better, what a time to be here
So break a leg now,
To all the world's biggest stage
Too many actors living in high tents(?)

Call me blue
Call me blue again
Call me blue
Call me blue

Sold your soul now(?)
Too much bathroom music
It turns your brain to sludge
When you watch too much
On the TV, on the radio
Turn it up now, cause that don't turn it off no
We need cotton beards(?) we need shout tears(?)
Don't press on tune ya(?)

Chorus
How can I say just how I feel
Do you not know, is this not real dear
One thing I know, there's blood in a stone

Imagine a weight inside my chest
If you should go that weight would crush my bones dear
What makes it worse is that this really hurts

Like a clump of trees
Don't cut me down
Evergreen
Sometimes blue
Evergreen
Sometimes blue
And you can not see the wood for a clump of trees
Trees, trees
But do do do(?)

Like a star when it falls its light lingers on
Just like my heart just a little more slowly
From the sea, to the roof, to the trees
It's burning time once more
And more and more times
Must the trees fall down
To leave my heart linger on

Like a clump of trees
Don't cut me down
Evergreen
Sometimes blue
Evergreen
Sometimes blue
And you can not see the wood for a clump of trees
Like a clump of trees
Don't cut me down
Evergreen
Sometimes blue
Evergreen
Sometimes blue
And you can not see
Can not see
Can not see the wood for a clump of trees

COMEDY IS OVER, THE COTTON PICKERS
I tried hard to reach you
I tried hard to understand
Where I was going wrong
I tried too hard
All the days I made you laugh
I thought I was halfways there
Now it seems that halfways
Is no where

The comedy is over
The curtains are down
I will no longer
Be seen
To be playing the clown
A smile is a frown upside down

Now Iíve learned that laughter
Will never be enough
*To bring happiness you need to be sad (less) ?? savless??
Which is one thing that you can never be
Look how you used me to make you happy

(chorus)

This clown doesnít feel like joking
This clown isnít very funny
This clown will have one last laugh

<Laughing>
<Clapping>

The comedy is over
The curtains are down
I will no longer
Be seen to be playing the clown
A smile is a frown
Iím not playing the clown, a smile is a frown
Upside down

(repeat)
There are lovers
There are mothers
There are winners
There are weepers
And there are saviours
And there are sinners, dreamers, doers, talkers, leaders
There are times when I feel

That we are all cotton pickers
We are all cotton pickers
We are all [???] wishers
We are all cotton pickers

There are monsters
There are monarchs
There are fiends
There are beggars
There are believers
There are hoaxers, hustlers, hagglers, paupers, taunters
There are times when I feel

And we all crave, we all cave in
And we all lust and we all flirt
And we all love, we all get hurt
For we are creatures, creatures of craze
Creatures, creatures of craze

And we all preach and we all dream
And we all observe and we all cry and we all scream
And we all try hard and we all despair

And we all mourn, we scorn and we sneer
And we all cheat and we scoff and we swear and we all lie

And we all strive, we thrive, deprive and some survive

Why do we keep all our fears inside

*Do we know where to go when we do reply???!!
*Do or die have you ever been???!!
Curious

What is love?
Is it real?
Or is it just a dream?
What is love?

Why are we ashamed to say whatís on our minds
Have you ever been curious
Why do we make a mess of things time and time again
Have you ever been curious
Why do we spend our lives loving what we hate
Iíve always been curious
And when we die do we go to the great big party in the sky
Iíve always been
Curious

If you like you can smoke a cigarette
You can put some funny paint on it

You can drive a fast car, stroll in the park(?), kick a ball

If you like you can do the foxtrot
You can pull the walls, dive, jump or twist
Don't ever think you're different

If you like you can be an actor
You can write a poem, drop a bomb, shoot an animal
Don't ever think you're different

If you like you can think in colors
You can white elephant, dark horse, black sheep

You can try to get it out of you

Everything that I have, you gave it to me
Everything that I am, you made me

Hey, hey, hey
You know I saw something today that made me stop and think
It was two youngsters snogging at the bus stop who couldnít get enough
So I stopped at the petrol station
And got some cheap flowers and a bar of Cadburyís dairymilk
This is my way of saying,
Well its about time I started thinking of someone else
Take, take, take taking me for what I can
Take, take, take taking you for what I am

Cos everything that I have you gave it to me
Everything that I am you made me
Everything that I need youíll give it to me
Oh yes you will
I know you will

Hey, hey, hey
You know having seen what I saw today
Reminded me of how we used to be
I thought the more you got to know somebody, eh, the less you had to say
And if I never give you credit itís because Iím too busy taking it for myself
But I realised now that thereís something far bigger and more important than me
Take, take, taking you for granted I,
Take, take, taking you for what I can

(chorus)

I owe you not one
But 1000 times and two
For what you do and a three
For believing in me
Forever more

Everything that I have you gave it to me
Everything that I am, you made me
Everything that I need, youíll give it tome
Oh yes you will
Oh yes you will

FREAK OUT PLACEHOLDER
When they gonna drop the big one
It's gonna be sooner than you think
Don't be a drag, be a scalliwag
Go out and get a new haircut

Freak out, honey
Freak out

Don't take a bite from forbidden fruit
All is not fair in love and war
Take your hand from your trousers
Taught to be a boy, not a man, get a haircut

Freak out, honey
Freak out

Time to be a weirdo
Go on be a devil
Wow! Baby, that's cool! Groovy! Far out!
Dig a big hole and jump in

Freak out, honey
Freak out

Woo hoo hoo hoo hoo ha ha ha ha ha
Woo hoo hoo hoo hoo ha ha ha ha ha

Had a free ticket(?)
Jeanie got snagged
Wear a loud shirt
Got a clap on the back
Dream about the beach boy
You can be a holiday
Lots of sun, fun
And a ______

Freak out, honey
Freak out

You can have you cake and eat it
Serve yourself to me on a plate
Learn from the past (?)
And not your _______
Go on your own
You have to blow your own jumper(?)

Freak out, honey

HAY WHEN THE SUN SHINES HERE COME THE GOOD TIMES
When I grow up I want to be an airline pilot
When I get old I want to be an airplane pilot
Yes, you can share that dream
If you can make it seem
Like ice in the springtime, a merry-go-round going round the wrong way

Hay when the sun shines
Hay when the sun shines
Hay when the sun shines
Hay when the sun, sun shines

Now it's all politics
Yes, it's all lunatics
Nice people, nice suits and ties
Filling us with wonderful lies
Listen son, I know you know what's good
So vote for me as all good boys would
Can't you see I promise you the world
And now you only get to see it

(Chorus)

Why should I want to leave here
Give me just one good reason
I can almost count on fingers
All the young people left here
I'm off to find fame and fortune
And a handful of self-respect too
So I follow in the footsteps
To the pace of prodigal son

(Chorus)
Ooooooo!
Ooooooo!
Ooooooo!
Itís been a long time since rock and roll
It all sounds good but itís filled with holes
Itís been a long time since the seventies
Nowadays everyoneís taking themselves too seriously
So if you believe than make believe
Then you can make yourself believe in me

Here come the good times
Here come the good times
Here come the good times
For a change
For a change

Itís been a long time since Iíve heard you laugh
Itís been a long time since Iíve seen you smile
Itís been a long time since our wide-eyed dreams
The closer we get to them the less they mean
It takes a long time for the scars to heal
Why wonít you tell me how you feel

(chorus)

Wooooooooo!
Wooooooooo!
Wooooooooo!
Where have all the good times gone
Where have they all gone
Itís good to see you laugh again
Itís good to see you smile again
Itís good to see you laughing one more time

Cos here come the good times
Here come the good times
Here come the good times
For a change
It makes a nice change
Itís good to see you
Itís good to see you smile
Itís good to see you laugh
Itís good to see you talk
Itís good to see you laugh
Itís good to see you smiling one more time

For a change for a change

If I scream at you will you scream at me back
Can you not trust me or where I've been

I Lyrics
I AM AFRAID I AM THE GREATEST
I am afraid of the dark
I am afraid of the day
I am afraid to walk outside
And of what people say

I am afraid to drink too much
Because of what I might do
I am afraid to speak my mind
And of being ridiculed

It's not that I'm not strong
It's just that I'm not strong enough for you
It's not that I'm not brave
It's just that I'm not brave enough for you

I am afraid to be unloved
I am afraid to be forsaken
I am afraid of doing wrong
And to never be forgiven

I am afraid that you will find
I'm not the man you think I am
I am afraid to be on my own
And of the unknown

(chorus)

Ever since I
Was a small child
I can not sleep at night
Without the light on

I am afraid to laugh out loud
Or to stand out of the crowd
I am scared of loving you
I am scared to lose you

I am afraid to lose control
I am afraid of growing old
I am afraid to die
But it's something I must do

It's not that I'm not strong
It's just that I'm not strong enough for you
It's not that I'm not brave
It's just that I'm not brave enough for two
Whatever happened to good music? You know in the days that you could feel it?
It was almost sexual, sending shivers up your spine. This, I believe is
because songwriters were not restricted by the small music dictatorship which
now exists. Let's hope the future holds something better than the present and
let's leave the past alone. The music business is incapable of bringing music
to the future, as it sits just waiting to pounce on any third rate trend,
milking it to death, once again putting money where the music is not. I only
wish I was born before all the great ideas were used. While I struggle to
working around this, the most annoying thing is watching others succeed
through stealing them. I could have been a legend in my own time; I could
have sold a lot of records; I could have enjoyed it as well. I could have
been a lot of things. One thing that I know I am and will always be: I am the
greatest.

I bumped into this bloke the other day we used to know in school. We didn't
say 'hello' because he had his hair slicked ______ and I had all mine shaved
off. He was always a bit of a clown. He used to be a hard man, but he did
his homework, because he knew that one day he'd be going places. I knew I
should have asked him there and then 'was he happy now that he'd finally got
there?' He goes to bed thinking of ways to fiddle ten more pounds on his
expenses. Me? I go to bed thinking of all the reasons why I am the greatest.

We always use other people as the mirror in which we judge ourselves. So, we
are constantly changing to meet their expectations. Maybe we've forgotten the
meaning of the word 'individual.' It's as if everything we do or think is
valued for its conformity. Anything fresh or original is hacked down and
always brought down to size. You don't even think for yourself, as a life
that is led for you is some kind of problem. You wouldn't recognize a new
idea if it spat in your face and screamed out hairy name(?). Who am I to
talk? Who the hell do I think I am? I am the greatest.

Welcome to the wonderful world of show business. The dark and dank place
rarely lit by the harsh light of reality. I look around and I see the big
monolith(?) rock stars with opinions on everything and answers to nothing.
Burnt out old men with money to burn. Bandwagons full of bands with
sycophantic fans with no lives of their own. A place where image is king and
music is a poorer relation that I can relate to. I am the greatest.

I am the greatest.

I am!

When I said that I need you

To get what I so richly deserve

When I said
When I told you that you were my best friend
I lied

When I said
When I swore that I won't hurt you
I lied

To get Ö to get what I so richly deserved

Because I
I even lied to myself
The truth is so often dull and uninspired
Dull and uninspired

I sit back and I make it all up
I sit back and I make it all up in my make-believe chair

I'm the only one that gets hurt
I'm the only one that gets hurt
I'm the only one that gets hurt

When I said, when I said
When I said, when I found
I don't love you anymore
I lied, I lied, I lied
I adore you

When I said, when I need you
I want you, I'll stay with you
In sickness and health, for richer or poorer
I lied, I lied, I lied, I lied
And I will lie again

So when I say, when I say,
When I say, when I say
I put you before even life itself
I lied, I lied, I lied
For I am still alive

To get what I
To get what I so richly deserve

Because I
I even lied to myself

I'LL ALWAYS BE GRATEFUL I THINK I'M GOING MAD
Nine long months you've spent thinking of me
And all the following years
Spent between the laughter and tears
Self-denial you've gave, to good to shout it out loud
There's a second law, but blood is thicker than skin

I'll always be grateful
I'll always be grateful
I'll always be grateful
For you

And the man's done his best with those old-fashioned ways
And I know you've tried hard, I can see it in your face
If I had of known then what I could have known now
I hate to patronize and even more I hate to criticize

Chorus

I must be painfully dull to do what I have done
By not showing love to those people that I love
But, still you accept what I've done proving time and time again
That someday I realize, but by then it's all too late

Chorus
And I'll never be hateful
Today I woke up, I sometimes do that
I switch on the tv, I sometimes do that too
I watch wars, drugs and sex, deaths
Winter olympics, jobless, homeless, lonely
Wealth statistics
Soaps filled with pipe dreams
This is the way life seems
Enjoyment or punishment?

I think I'm going mad
I think I'm going mad
I think I'm going mad
Mad, mad, mad

Mad, mad, mad

Tonight I'll go to bed, I sometimes do that
I'll toss and I'll turn see I sometimes do that too
I'll think of all the things I've seen that make
Me feel ashamed to be white or even human
The poorhouse and funfairs, the unaware
Millionaires
The penniless still despair, the well aware turn to prayer
And it all ends up in a nightmare

I think I'm going mad

What gives you the right to stick your hands in my pocket
I worked hard for my things, you just can't take them
You, you, you, you, you, you, you, you call like an animal from the pack
And I never, ever said it was fair and I can't see the point in talking to you

I want to kill something
I want to kill something
I want to kill something
I want to kill something

I didn't ask you here, this weight that I'm feeling
But two wrongs might make this right, revenge is fleeting

And contempt springs to mind when I think of what used to mine

So come on now, lift your head
Of you're going to weather the storm
Youíd better wrap yourself up warm, warm

And you have disapproving thoughts about other men

Babe, what do I have to do
There's got to be a way to impress you
Fast cars, fast holidays, fast lights
Is that what you want
You can't see further than your next ambition
You're a mental acrobat with ____ addiction

Take me to the love quarry
Take me to the love quarry

Cutie pie
I can call you that
Can't I,
Now that we're lovers
Piling on the agony
Playing violins to unfinished symphonies

Take me to the love quarry
Take me to the love quarry
Why don't you take, take, take me to the love quarry
Why don't you take, take, take me to the love quarry

MAKE ME PROUD MANSTRONG
You stay in
(Night after night)
Youíre a prisoner in your own home
(Night after night)
You know it feels to be lonely
(Night after night)
All you have to hold onto is your memories
(Night after night)

But tonight
Take my hand
Tonight
Take my hand
And dance with me
Hold me
And make me proud

You go home
Night after night
You know how to feel sorry for yourself
(Night after night)
You crawl into bed on your own
(Night after night)
All you have to look forward to is your dreams
(Night after night)

(chorus)

Donít you understand?
(Youíre beautiful)
Why canít you believe?
(Youíre beautiful)
Put on your new frock
(Youíre beautiful)
And some soft makeup
(Youíre beautiful)

And tonight
Take my hand
Tonight
Take my hand

Oh dance with me
Promise me
Youíll make me proud
Youíll make me proud
Youíll make me proud
Donít turn around
Afraid of what you'll find
Now that I'm older
Still afraid to look over my shoulder
Creeping out from all four corners
Hitting you without a warning
Not knowing what they're doing
Not caring who they're hurting

(chorus)

Outside it's manstrong
Outside it's evil
Outside it's manstrong
Outside it's ego
And the girl's afraid to walk home
On the dark streets all alone
Wishing you were almost blind
Afraid of evil minds
So you get a taxi home
Thinking now you're all alone
But in the front sits a freak
Itís a different freak
And in the back sits you but youíre too weak

(repeat chorus)

And the fear engulfs us
Like a plague it's getting worse
All sorts of gadgetry
Locks and bolts designed to keep us safe
And the evil outside, keeps us all inside
In our comfortable surroundings
Really we are fucking hiding

(chorus)

Outside it's manstrong
Outside it's evil
Outside it's manstrong
Outside it's ego
Outside it's manstrong
Outside it's evil
Outside it's manstrong
Outside it's evil

MARRY ME MY LITTLE LIGHTHOUSE
It looks a bit funny
When i look back at things
But it must have looked hilarious
When you planned it with your friends
That time you hooked me in
From the corner of your eyes
Men surround you like flies
Hook line and sunk with your lies
Meeting you
Was like a breath of fresh air
Until you started smoking
And I ended up the butt of your jokes

(chorus)

Marry me Ö
As I've said
Youíve cheekbones designed by an architect
And your figure of porcelain
Ready to crumble in my hands
Oh won't you marry me
I can be what you want me to be
But you said, hey! hold on -
Itís just a joke
And now please don't bother me
Meeting you
Was like a breath of fresh air
Until you started smoking
And I ended up the butt of your jokes

(chorus)

Marry me Ö
Meeting you
Was like a breath of fresh air
Until you started smoking
And I ended up the butt of your jokes
And you ended up the butt of your jokes
You give me inspiration
You give me love
My little lighthouse
And the brilliant things that you do
I think I could like you

Yes, we could walk for awhile
Or simple talk for awhile
We could watch a video show
Or catch a picture show, don't you know
We could shower, put on a change of clothes
And go where everyone goes
We could stay in,
Get a cheap bottle of wine and dine

Chorus


We could go where the wind blows o'er your hair
As it blows, watch it show the sky, the sky is much darker now
But you wouldn't like that, no, you wouldn't like that
And if I could see out, I wouldn't have to shout
There's no need to pout

Chorus

We could take a weekend away
Do holiday things, get drunk and fall down
And don't ask for reasons you hold
Got a heart made of gold get things done as they're told
So let me tell you now there's no silver line
There's those that don't want to see
And the story so far rings like a shotgun in your hand

Now that I'm sick
Will I ever feel well again
Now that I'm getting old
Will I ever retain my youth
Now that I'm angry
Will I ever be able to forgive again
Now that I feel threatened
Will I ever be able to live without fear

You know that I doubt it

You know that I doubt it

Now that I'm weak
Will I ever be able to stand up by myself
Now that I'm stupid
Will I ever be able to kill this mockingbird
Now that I'm hungry
Will I ever be able to afford to feed myself
Now that I'm poor
Can I ever live like those

Now that we care
Can we find in our hearts
To give to those, those who have not
Are we greedy, do we know it
And do we really care
Now that I'm angry, angry, angry
Now that I'm sick, now that I'm sick
Now that I'm sick, sick, sick

PATRON SAINT OF MEDIOCRITY, THE PICTURE A HOUSE
I'm not unique or some kind of freak
I'm not anarchic, I'm not afraid to speak
I'm not a work of art, or a terminal scar
I'm not a star, I don't care who you are
I'm not a leader of men, anybody's friend
Anybody's friend
I'm not a godsend, I'm not a omniscient
I'm not insane, I'm not inhumane
I'm merely what you see

(chorus)

I am the patron saint of
Patron saint of

Patron saint of
Mediocrity

I'm nobody's fool, yet I won't ridicule you
I'm not self-righteous, I'm not always wrong
I'm not somebody that anyone relies on
I'm not a shoulder that anybody cries on
I'm not a coward or stand out in the crowd
I don't stand out in the crowd
I'm not the crŤme de la crŤme or the salt of the earth
I won't bore you to tears or crack you up laughing
I am merely what you see

I'm not Jesus Christ or the fallen angel
I'm not trustworthy, I'm not a liar

Picture a house
With hanging baskets
On a quiet little street
On the corner where the lamp shows
A beautiful garden
And perfect cut lawns
All the young people play hide and
But inside thereís a monster
Who makes demands
He sais ďdo what I want - not what I say.Ē
And everyone lives in fear
Will the man responsible
Will the man responsible
Take a bow.

SLIPPING AWAY SHE KEEPS ME HUMBLE
I once had everything my heart desired
I was always looking forward
I once knew everything there was to know
I was the only one who thought so
I once was everything a man should be
Tall, red, rich and handsome

I had morality, Mr personality
Give my guidance to anyone who'd take it
Love of the year, captain of my class
Crew member of the month
I'd hit the headlines
Heads I'd win; Tails, I'd lose
Guess what? Tails won.

(chorus)

I once loved everything in everyone
I grew up quick when things went wrong
I once dreamt live was a bed of roses
Until I lay down in a bed of thorns
I once thought the world would bow down at my feet
I would just sit back and let things happen

Then I woke up in a blinding flash of light
And out of nowhere I saw this faint figure
Quite clearly pointing it's finger
And then I heard a voice say "My son,
This world is for the taking but only if you want it bad enough."
I said. "My god, I have tried!"

(chorus)

I had promise, ate with a silver spoon, fed from a silver plate
I had dedication, I had respect, I was God's gift to mankind
I had a head full of dreams, I believed in things
Now, I've got a pocket full of nothing, I keep on losing it

(chorus)
Im nervous around you
I am what you are
I am mad about you
I am what you are
So near and far away
From what you want

I am what you are
Iím there when you call me
I am who you know
I follow your shadow
I am what you see
I am what I think you want me to be
I am what you are
So near and far away

She keeps me down
She keeps me humble
She keeps me down, down, down
She keeps me humble

She keeps me from
Losing my head
Keeping my edge
She keeps me down
Down in the ground
Im not uptight when sheís not around
She keeps me down

Iím nervous around you
I am what you are
I am mad about you
I am what you are
So near and far away
From what you need
*I am both in soul ?
Body and soul
With no guarantees
Of her loving me
I wish she could try
Or just leave me be
I am what you are
So near and far away

(chorus)

She keeps me from losing my head
Keeping my edge
She puts me down, down in the crowd
Iím not uptight
When sheís not around
She keeps me down

(chorus)

She keeps me from losing my head
Keeping my edge
She keeps me down
Down in the ground
Iím not uptight when sheís not around

SHIVERS UP MY SPINE SMALL TALK
And the smell of the flowers
And the sweet cool air
Makes me feel like thinking
There must he somebody up there
And the sound of the sea
And the way it frightens me
And the howling wind
Steeped in mystery

(chorus)

It sends shivers, shivers,
Up my spine. up my spine
And the fear of silence,
I keep on hearing things.
And the fear of getting too high,
I feel like jumping off,
And the fear of darkness,
I keep on seeing things.
And the things i can't see, see, see
Scares the living daylights out of me

(repeat chorus)

But the one thing that gets me every time
Hardest to conceive
Is when you see, see, see, see
What man can be
Seeing is believing, hearing is frightening
Man, man, man, man and the evil within
Stupidity, inhumanity, ignorance and cruelty

And the smell of the flowers
And the way they are withering
And the one thing that frightens me
Is hearing
Is seeing

SPINSTER STONE THE CROWS
You live like a spinster
Hide yourself away
Youíre far too beautiful
To hide yourself away
You donít have to be 17
To be on the cover of a magazine
*Let your soul opening ??
*Left destroy you ??

Come out come out come out and show yourself
Come out come out come out and show yourself

Youíve nothing to prove
You have nothing to lose
You canít set yourself
You canít set yourself free
Free

You live like a spinster
Hide your love away
Youíre far too beautiful
To hide your love away
You have to have faith enough in yourself
And learn that if you continue to hide
Your feelings inside theyíll just destroy you

Set yourself free
Free

This is such flash(?)
I could sound like Mellancamp(?)
Wouldn't that be nice

Stone all the crows
Stone all the hacks
Stone all the stars
Why don't you stone, stone me

Ihave no heart
I have no song
You can always trust on a star
To make things go wrong

Stone all the crows
Stone all the stars
Stone all the hacks
Why don't you stone, stone me

I'm told what to do
I'm good looking, dumb and tall

Stone all the stars
Why don't you stone, stone me
Why don't you stone, stone me, me, me, me, me, me

TAKE IT EASY ON ME TALKING
Why do you treat me so cruel
Take it easy on me
Take it easy on me
Why must you always disapprove
Take it easy on me
Take it easy on me
What have I ever done to you
Take it easy on me
Take it easy on me

For if you keep on pushing me
I'll lose my grip on reality
If you treat me delicately
I will last forever
So put me up on your pedestal
All you have to do is love me, baby

Don't make me look like a fool
Take it easy on me
Take it easy on me
Don't build me up then knock me down
Take it easy on me
Take it easy on me
Don't think I don't know you get around
Take it easy on me
Take it easy on me

Oh what have you got that I have loved
What can they give you that I can not
Do the blinkers from your eyes
See through their disguise
If you get warned(?) and abused
You'll be back to me
Won't you baby

Once again you will promise that you
You will always wear kid gloves
You will promise me that you
You will give me the whole world
You will promise me that you
You will treat me like you should

Don't build me up then knock me down
Take it easy on me
Make it easy on yourself
Don't think I don't know you get around
Take it easy on me
Make it easy on yourself
Don't make me look like your clown
Take it easy on me
Make it easy on yourself

Take it Ö take it easy
I don't believe you
I can't understand you
Take it easy on me
Make it easy on yourself

Take it Ö take it easy
How can I believe you this time
Why should this time be any different than the others
Take it easy on me
Make it easy on yourself

Take it Ö take it easy
So go on then
Crawl back to the others and see if they will have you
Take it easy on me
Make it easy on yourself

Take it Ö take it easy
For the first time in my life
I feel like Ö really good
Take it easy on me
Make it easy on yourself

Take it Ö take it easy
Go on then, on your bike
Good Luck to you.
Take it easy on me
Make it easy on yourself

Mind you don't fall
Donít tell me
I don't want to know
So please don't tell me,
I can't stand it.
All your views on
How life's supposed to be
Chalk and talk
Topped with hypocrisy
Why, why, why, do we try
Why, why, why
Must we insist on

Talking for the sake of talking
Being nice for the sake of being nice
Living for the sake of living
Uptight for the sake of
Nice to see you and me
Get along so wonderfully

Donít tell me
I don't want to know
So please don't tell me
I can't stand it.
Shouting over everyone
No one's hearing anything
Talk, talk, big mouth
Get the last word in
Why, why, why do we try
Why, why, why
Do we insist on

Here we go again
Talking round in circles
Here we go again
Talking a thin line
You and I prove the
Square peg theory
Goes to show
The shape of things to come

And wonder do you
Think that I

Loved you

You know I love you
For the next ten minutes at least
Why can't we get married
And then let the boredom set in

Violent love, violent love, violent love, violent love

Now you've hit her
But you didn't mean to hit to hard
At least not the first time
Or the second or the third of the fourth time

Violent love, violent love, violent love, violent love

Another quick one in the hand
Later I can give to my wife
When I get home
I'm sure she's waiting up there

Violent love, violent love, violent love, violent love

WhyÖ. Me?
WhyÖ. Me?

This is a cruel and ruthless world
This is our world
This everyone for themselves where bigger dogs eat smaller dogs over lunch
Where thereís always someone younger, cheaper and better than you
Itís a game
In order to survive you must play
To succeed you must cheat
If you do you do not have the right to feel hard done by
If you donít youíll spend the rest of your life wondering why
Why me?

Why me indeed..
I ordered everything that my eyes could see
But you donít see the pitfalls and youíre blinded by greed
I ordered things I could never afford
But I got much more than I bargained for

If I hadnít gone too far
If I didnít want to much
If I hadnít pushed too hard
Things could have been different for me

(repeat chorus)

Sometimes our expectations are far too high
And we lead ourselves to believe that that love should be indestructible
When in fact love is the one thing that can completely destroy us
We think we deserve to get more out than were willing to put in
We demand honesty, openness and loyalty
Which is more than we can bear live up to
So when love falls apart we feel that weíre the only person in the world
this have ever happened to
Why me indeed?

I took a chance and died in your arms
When you took me in and you smothered me with your charms
I bit off more than I could possibly chew
And Iíd eaten my fill and was devoured by you

(chorus)

(repeat chorus)

We cannot bear to admit defeat
We cannot take the pain
We are prepared to take the risks
And bask in the glory of our own success
We are not prepared to wallow in the depths of our inadequacies
So we look for someone else to blame
Why me indeed..

I took a chance and died in your arms
When you took me in and you smothered me with your charms
I bit off more than I could possibly chew
When Iíd eaten my fill, I was devoured by you

YOU'LL CRY WHEN I DIE YOU'RE TOO YOUNG
Heaven knows you try hard
Hell makes us think you do
Buying all the right things
At all the right times, you know
Heaven gives up openness
Hell takes it back from you
Caring and sharing at
All the right times, you see

You'll cry when I die
Ask yourself why, why, why, why

Heaven knows life goes on
Hell knows for how long
Heaven knows as long as
You don't let hell interfere
You wish you had done this
You wish you had done that
Going through your brain
Constantly leading you to shame

You just can't go through life
Life is a piece of cold stone
Because even a stone can be
Crushed by a heavy blow
Right through your heart
When you're least expecting it
Don't let them go without
Letting them know how you feel
How you feel

You're too young
You're just too young
To be hateful
You're too young

You can be like me
You can be like me
You can be like me
And everybody

For I am too old
But I am too old
To be graceful
I am too old
To be wishful
Playful, youthful, sinful, harmful, useful, boastful
I am too old to understand the reason why

But when I grow, grow, grow, grow, grow, grow
I can be like you
I wanna be like you
I wanna be like you!
I am too old and you are too young... young
