Track Name: Jesus Give Me Back My Life
A rumbling plane and distant carsare all that move beneath the stars.
I push my windows open wide to breathe the air.
It's cool outside I don't wanna die or anything.
But Jesus ... give me back my life. A naked fall. A thunder storm.
No television in my room.
I used to drive a motor car.
I used to wear a uniform. I don't wanna fight with anyone.
But Jesus give me back my life. All the world is getting younger.
All the world is tied.
All the world is getting stronger.
All the world is singing songs like: Na na na na na na. Na na na na na na. This is how they do it. Through the wall a baby criesfor innocence in dangerous times.
Odessa to Sebastopol, the animals are in control. I don't wanna buy a cemetery.
But Jesus ... give me back my life.
Track Name: Dream Wedding
Outside on the front lawn
in a cold wind with the big crowd.
The staircase needs cleaning
and the ground full of life.
A small child in a silk dress
with a bell I just gave her
I think it was Leila
but I never saw her face

Waking up. See the clock.
Dream had stopped.
And now we've blown it all away.

Entrance through a small crowd.
I think they're applauding.
I can't quite see the girl's face
but I know that she is.

For a moment I saw the marquee
getting wind blown in the garden.
In a house I've never lived in
and a place I've never seen.

Waking up. See the clock.
Dream had stopped.
And now we've blown it all away.

Outside on the front lawn
in a cold wind in the night.
Small child in a silk dress
I never saw her face.
Entrance through a small crowd.
I think they're clapping me.
For a moment I saw the marquee.
From the moment that I saw your face.

Dream wedding.
La la la la la, la la la la la,
la la la la la, la la la la la.
Track Name: Protection
Pulling on the clothes that never really fit.
Hoping she can get away with it ... Protection.
Standing on the pavement climbing into cars.
Hoping the face reflects the heart ... Protection.
All right now ... All right now
There's not a moment that I'm not protective of you.

Groping in the darkness, reaching for your shoes.
Nobody cares for a child with your connections.
Talking with the crew she's eager to impress.
Selling us a line in emptiness.
You're tired little girl.
All right now ... All right now
There's not a moment that I'm not protective of you.
There's not a moment that I'm not affected by you.

Riding on a wave you juvenile crime.
I wonder if you can get off on time
or whether you'd want to.
Where did you get that bruise on your face.
You must have come home in a terrible state ... Protection.
All right now ... All right now.
There's not a moment that I'm not protective of you.
There's not a moment that I'm not affected by you.
Track Name: Big Man Buddha
I was surprised when you arrived
and addressed me as your son.
You and me had a red pot tea.
It was instantaneous.
I know we're all expandable but I like to feel secure.
The way you see eternity.
Well I feel like dying.

When you explained possessions equal pain.
When you explained how we all go back again.

Once the dream has gone I called you on the telephone.
Once the dream has gone I opened up my eyes.
Oh, I'll never measure up to you.
Oh, I'll never be a Lama, too.
Big Man ... big man

When you cast the spirits out you must know that native tongue.
I've never known an exorcist till you came this morning.
When I observed your way of life I feel I'm getting warm.
The way you talk, the way you think ... so understated.
When you explained possessions equal pain.
When you explained how we all go back again.

Once the dream has gone I called you on the telephone.
Once the dream has gone I opened up my eyes.
Oh, I'll never measure up to you.
Oh, I'll never be a Lama, too.
Big Man ... big man
Track Name: Buffalo heart
Buffalo hearts are breaking in two.
Stuff all the banks and money that's due.
I'll take you to Rome on my Harley D.
They'll never catch up on time.
Buffalo girl don't tickle my chin.

I was on another planet.
It's time to laugh about it.
I was on another planet.
Save me.

There's lots of juice in the bottle.
The kids in the sack.
All we got fire in our belly.
There'll be no holding back.
It's just a short intermission,
a temporary fault.
There's only one thing wrong:
No justice in this world.
Another campside. Another campside.

Find out the things that bother you most.
Scrape up your life and spread it on toast.
I'll take you to Rome on my Harley D.
They'll never catch up this time.
Buffalo girl don't tickle my chain.

I was on another planet.
I found I couldn't stand it.
I was on another planet.
Save me.

There's lots of juice in the bottle.
The kids in the sack.
All we got fire in our belly.
There'll be no holding back.
It's just a short intermission,
a temporary fault.
There's only one thing wrong:
No justice in this world.

Another campside, another broken home
Another campside, another child that won't go back to school.
Track Name: Stream Of Unconscious
You took my life but I still love you
You dragged me down but I wanted you me to.
You shooked me hard but I stuck like glue.

You stick to lies that you know the best.
Six pairs of hands on a dead man's chest.
Don't wanna die till I know the rest.

I gave you words but you wanted more.
I never knew what you were fighting for.
I never thought that you'd slam that door.

Baby we've been through so much together.
It'll be all right.
Why can't you take it anymore?
Baby we've been through so much together.
Tell me it'll all right.
Why can't you take it anymore?

Dream a lot ... dream of the future.
Dream a lot ... dream of the past.
Dream a lot ... stream of unconscious ...
Track Name: You Never Cross The Same River Twice
Everytime those doors blow open
and I feel that restless ocean.
And I'm here without my clothes on exposed to the world.

I was open to persuasion on a number of occasions.
It was a simple situation of loneliness and desire.

From the moment that you listened.
Then you noticed something's missing.
You can make a good decision and you know it won't be wrong.

I was kicking. I was screaming.
I was hoping. I was dreaming.
But my life had lost its meaning.
But the living must go on.

Turn back the clock `cos I'm in your hands.
Turn back the clock. I think you understand.
Turn back the clock. I want you to come home.

Sooner or later my princess will come.
Sooner or later my princess will come.
Turn back the clock `cos I'm in your hands.
Turn back the clock. I think you understand.
Turn back the clock. I want you to come home.
Track Name: Magic Moon
When the magic moon can impress me still
and fill me with wonder and kindness.
As a primitive man I can appreciate
the virtual meaning of darkness.
Now you're gone and I can't live without your manner.

Wake me up when you're strong enough
and put your clothes back on.
We'll go searching for stars and I can wind you up
and I can wind you up.

When the summer sun looses up my bones
and I stare like a child in the ocean.
There's a natural sea out there for me.
I make sure that I keep my eyes open.
Moving waves and up the same whole world over.

Wake me up when you're strong enough
and put your clothes back on.
We'll go searching for stars and you can wind me up
and you can wind me up.

You must run and you must fall
but we'll go on forever.

When the man comes up and he shows me his body.
I said: Promise me that you won't change your mind.
Oh now he's gone
and we can live without complaining.

Wake me up when you're strong enough
and put your clothes back on.
We'll go searching for stars and you can wind me up
and you can wind me up.

You must run and you must fall
but we'll go on forever.
Track Name: No Strings
Oh, you love me and I know it.
You trust me and you show it.
Oh, no matter where you are.

Oh you left me, I was crying.
I never gave up trying.
Oh, no matter where you are.
You're the girl, you're the girl with no strings.

Oh, you love me and you show it.
You trust me and I know it.
Oh, No matter where you are.
You're the girl, you're the girl with no strings.

Oh shit. You gotta pay for it.
You gotta take your chances.
You're the girl, you're the girl with no strings.

There's nothing will tie you down.
Girl with no strings.
Track Name: Goldrush Town
This time it's just a goldrush town.
Oh these sored red eyes have seen the Wall come down.
A place of fear is a sense of loss.
All the thanks have gone and the power' switched off.

Young girl sleeps in the hifi-store.
She's got a cardboard house on a concrete floor.
Cameras flash in the baritone sax
and the busker smiles.
It's just a tourist trap.

It's a meeting point between east and west,
between a refugee and a hotel guest
It's the meeting point it's like a station here.
No wonder I'm impatient.
Some people who call me crazy or simply sentimental.
You better believe your eyes,
just look out through window.

It's just a goldrush town.
It's just a goldrush town.
It's just a goldrush town.
Berlin.
Track Name: Here And Now
A Berkoff play on a television.
A goatee beard.
She's ginger haired.
An English Seine, a pair of jeans, a lite that steams.
A smell of fire, I'm sure there's something burning.

Hang around me. Hang around me. Hang around me.
Here & now.

A steam of thought runs through my head in technicolor.
I took the Train to Valladolid with engines at both ends.
The woman knew I couldn't speak her language,
but she talked to me.
She'd stating facts, the crowd reacts, a raging bull.

Hang around me. Hang around me. Hang around me.
Here & now.

I'm tired, I'm tired, I'm tired, I'm tired,
I'm tired in quick succession.

A screaming man says the engine's on.
The rumour might be worthless.
The electricity is absolutely. absolutely free!

Hang around me. Hang around me. Hang around me.
Here & now.
