About This Album

Lyrics

  • CD1

  • Girls On Film

    [Intro]
    Sound of Camera shutters flickering

    [Verse 1]
    See them walking hand in hand across the bridge at midnight
    Heads turning as the lights flashing out it's so bright
    Then walk right out to the four-line track
    There's a camera rolling on her back, on her back
    And I sense the rhythm humming in a frenzy all the way down her spine

    [Chorus]
    Girls on film
    Girls on film
    Girls on film
    Girls on film

    [Verse 2]
    Lipstick cherry all over the lens as she's falling
    In miles of sharp blue water coming in where she lies
    The diving man's coming up for air
    Cause the crowd all love pulling dolly by the hair, by the hair
    And she wonders how she ever got here as she goes under again

    [Chorus]
    Girls on film (two minutes later)
    Girls on film
    Girls on film (got your picture)
    Girls on film

    [Verse 3]
    Wider baby smiling you just made a million
    Fuses pumping live heat twisting out on a wire
    Take one last glimpse into the night
    I'm touching close I'm holding bright, holding tight
    Give me shudders in a whisper take me up till I'm shooting a star

    [Chorus-Outro]
    Girls on film (she's more than a lady)
    Girls on film
    Girls on film (two minutes later)
    Girls on film
    Girls on film (see you together)
    Girls on film
    Girls on film (see you later)
    Girls on film
    Girls on film (what you doing)
    Girls on film...

  • Only came outside to watch the night fall with the rain
    I heard you making patterns rhyme
    Like some new romantic looking for the TV sound
    You'll see I'm right some other time

    Look now, look all around, there's no sign of life
    Voices, another sound, can you hear me now?
    This is Planet Earth, you're looking at Planet Earth
    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop this is Planet Earth

    My head is stuck on something precious
    Let me know if you're coming down to land
    Is there anybody out there trying to get through?
    My eyes are so cloudy I can't see you

    Look now, look all around, there's no sign of life
    Voices, another sound, can you hear me now?
    This is Planet Earth, you're looking at Planet Earth

    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
    This is Planet Earth
    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
    Calling Planet Earth
    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
    Looking at Planet Earth
    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
    This is Planet Earth

  • I never found out what made you leave
    And now the day is over, just an hour to go
    I tried to phone last night but you didn't answer
    Just left me ringing on the line

    Outside is there anyone out there, anyone else outside
    Outside love is there anyone out there, anyone else outside

    My face in the mirror shows the break in time
    A crack in the ocean which does not align
    I tried to sleep last night but I've caught your dreaming
    About days we used to wonder away

    Outside is there anyone out there, anyone else outside
    Outside love is there anyone out there, anyone else outside

    Look out of the window maybe you can call by my name
    Another night over babe another light comes on in vain

    I tried to phone last night but you never answered
    Just left me ringing in the air (outside)

    Is there anyone out there
    (anyone out there)

  • [Verse]
    Oh when your nine day feed is up and you've drained your loving cup
    Come stands reeling to the shore oh when the brave are coming out
    The dry fight and the dusty shout see you crawling on the floor
    And diamond stars shining glitter bright gorging your sanhedralites
    Words are falling to the floor glad stand pouring fruit trees
    And now they glisten on the waterline sing home you are at the shore
    I'm moving crissie pretty flowers in the shuttermaze
    Haul up all your petty desires leave them lying down they fall
    Wash away the rusty disease of your brown town days in our silver sea
    Leave it dying at the door feather yellow your time to leave
    Open out your arms and breathe

    [Outro]
    Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh to the shore now
    Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh to the shore now come on

  • [Verse 1]
    So soon
    Just after you've gone
    My senses sharpen
    But it always takes
    So damned long
    Before I feel how much
    My eyes have darkened

    [Chorus 1]
    Fear hangs a plane of gun smoke
    Drifting in our room
    So easy to disturb
    With a thought
    With a whisper
    With a careless memory

    [Verse 2]
    On the table
    Signs of love life scattered
    And the walls break
    We go crashing within
    It's not as though
    As though you really mattered
    But being close
    How could I let you go
    Without some feeling
    Some precious sympathy following

    [Chorus 1]

    [Verse 3]
    I walk out into the sun
    I try to find a new day
    But the whole place
    It just screams in my eyes
    Where are you now?
    Cause I don't want to meet you
    I think I'd die
    I think I'd laugh at you
    I think I'd cry
    What am I supposed to do
    Follow you?

    [Chorus 1]

  • [Verse 1]
    Standing on the edge of a quay
    Low lights flashing on the water for me
    Fogging my mind darkens my eyes
    Silently streaming for a distant sound
    Ripple river yellows
    Rising for a breath of breeding and drowns
    Stillness overcomes me in the night
    Listen to the rising water moan

    [Chorus]
    I'm waiting
    Waiting for the night bo-oh-oat
    I'm waiting
    Waiting for the night boat

    [Verse 2]
    Shudders all through me shudder away
    Echo me, echo me (echo me...)
    Am I alone or is the river alive
    'Cause it echos me, echos me, echos me

    [Chorus]
    I'm waiting
    Waiting for the night bo-oh-oat
    I'm waiting
    Waiting for the night boat

    Waiting
    Waiting for the night bo-oh-oat
    I'm waiting
    Waiting for the night boat
    Waiting for the night bo-oh-oat
    I'm waiting
    Waiting for the night boat

    [outro]
    I'm waiting for the night boat

  • [Verse 1]
    I've been in this grass here
    For the last ten hours
    My clothes are dirty
    But my mouth isn't dry
    How does it happen?
    Does it fly through the air?
    Woah I gave up asking days away
    I gave up asking days away

    [Chorus]
    And now I'm lying here
    Waiting for the sound of thunder
    Waiting for the sound of thunder

    [Verse 2]
    Here I am I'm a dotted line
    Cut in through corners
    Stick me through your door
    I'm the man who stepped off the path
    And I just lying here
    That's what I was made for

    [Verse 3]
    And now my eyes are closing
    But I still feel the land
    Leaning out for the touch of my hand
    The world spins so fast
    That I might fly off
    The world spins so fast
    That I might fly off
    The world spins so fast
    I might fly off

    [Outro]
    Waiting for the sound of thunder
    I'm waiting for the sound of thunder
    I'm waiting for the sound of thunder
    I'm waiting for the sound of thunder
    I'm waiting for the sound of thunder
    I'm waiting for the sound of thunder
    I'm waiting for the sound of thunder
    I'm waiting for the sound of thunder

  • [Verse 1]
    Friends of mine
    They said they were friends of mine
    Said they were passing time
    More like a waste of time

    Close the door
    I said close the door
    I've told you twice before
    What are you waiting for?

    [Chorus]
    Georgie Davis is coming out
    No more heroes we twist and shout
    Oh no, not me, I'm not too late
    And I know that I'm not taking anymore
    Rocky Picture has lost his gun
    Leave him out now he's having fun
    Oh no, not me, I'm not too late
    And I know that I'm not waiting anymore, hey, hey

    [Verse 2]
    Silly lies
    Don't have to advertise
    When will you realize?
    I'm sick of your alibis

    Running cold
    The water's running cold
    It's time that you were told
    I think you're growing old

    [Chorus]
    Georgie Davies is coming out
    No more heroes we twist and shout
    Oh no, not me, I'm not too late
    And I know that I'm not waiting anymore
    Rocky Picture has lost his gun
    Leave him out now he's having fun
    Oh no, not me, I'm not too late
    And I know that I'm not taking any more (hey, hey)

    [Bridge]
    I see you smile
    Pictures on the wall, they're all friends of mine
    See you standing 'round the back (friends of mine)
    Think yourself lucky

    [Verse 3]
    Friends of mine
    They said they were friends of mine
    They were just wasting time
    Out on the dotted line

    Oh, money's gone
    I've known it all along
    Why don't you say I'm wrong?
    Why don't they drop the bomb?

    [Chorus]
    'Cause Georgie Davies is coming out
    No more heroes we twist and shout
    Oh no, not me, I'm not too late
    And I know that I'm not waiting anymore
    Rocky Picture's thrown away his gun
    Leave him out now he's having fun
    Oh no, not me, I'm not too late
    And I know that I'm not taking any more

    [Outro]
    What you doing, friends of mine?
    Holding back now, friends of mine
    I've always heard you calling

  • [Instrumental]

  • There's a hole in the wall next to you
    Things with legs are crawling through
    The man is searching for the door and you run
    You're coming out, you're going down

    There's an all night party in room 7609
    La-la-la late bar, la la la la la la la la
    You can dance together all night, if you've got the time
    La-la-la late bar, la la la la la la la la

    The bodies move like flies on the wall
    You want to run but there's no space at all
    The dancers spinning in the mirror ball
    You're coming out, you're going 'round

    There's an all night party in room 7609
    La-la-la late bar, la la la la la la la la
    You can dance together all night, if you've got the time
    La-la-la late bar, la la la la la la la la

    Just come to the late bar
    Come, so fast
    Drink...
    I know what I'm talking about
    I know what I'm doing
    Ahh...

    There's an all night party in room 7609
    La-la-la late bar, la la la la la la la la
    You can dance together all night, if you've got the time
    La-la-la late bar, la la la la la la la la

  • [Verse 1]
    Didn't no one tell you
    Money is a game playing so hard to get now
    I don't even know your name

    [Chorus]
    (Khanada I'll get by) Don't play with me I've nothing to lose
    (Khanada I'll get by) Ain't no one's day is coming too soon
    (Khanada I'll get by) I don't believe in dragons or blue
    (Khanada I'll get by) I don't believe in nobody's rules

    [Verse 2]
    Heavy as the rain falls
    I might go outside just because you're with me
    Doesn't mean you're not the same

    [Chorus]
    (Khanada I'll get by) Don't play with me I've nothing to lose
    (Khanada I'll get by) Ain't no one's day is coming too soon
    (Khanada I'll get by) I don't believe in dragons or blue
    (Khanada I'll get by) I don't believe in nobody's rules

  • Fame, makes a man take things over
    Fame, lets him loose, and hard to swallow
    Fame, puts you there, when things are hollow
    Fame...

    Fame, it's not your brain, just a flame
    A funny tin to dip you insane
    Fame...

    Fame, what you like is in the Limo
    Fame, what you get is no tomorrow
    Fame, what you need you have to borrow
    Fame...

    Fame, "Nein! It's mine!" is just his line
    He's only trying to drive you to crime... (crime)
    Fame...

    Is it any wonder
    I'll reject you first
    Is it any wonder
    You're too cool to fool

    Fame
    Bully for you, chilly for me
    Got to get a rain check on... pain
    Fame...

    Fame (Rpt x23)
    What's your name?
    What a game...
    What a shame... What a shame...

  • Oh-oh-oh
    Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

    Why I see your face
    Moving in the aerospace
    White Light shining, we're all alone
    Scare of flying, cos here we come

    White light, homing in
    The speed of light, moving in
    Faster than light (the light)
    Faster than light (the light)
    Faster than light...
    Faster than light (the light)
    Faster than light (the light)
    Faster than light...

    Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
    You see ways by the door
    Pulling over years before
    White light shining bright, you're all alone
    Scare of flying, cos here we come

    White light, homing in
    The speed of light, moving in
    Faster than light (the light)
