About This Album

Lyrics

  • Planet Earth (Night Version)

    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, 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

    Look now, look all around, there's no sign of life
    Voices, another sound, can you hear me now?
    Is 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

  • 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

    Girls on film
    Girls on film
    Girls on film
    Girls on film

    Lipstick cherry all over the lens as she's falling
    And 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

    Girls on film (Two minutes later)
    Girls on film
    Girls on film (Got your picture)
    Girls on film

    Wider, baby, smiling, you've 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 'til I'm shooting a star

    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

  • I saw you at the air race yesterday
    April showers get out of my way
    Fear of flying no not me
    I'm never bothered what you say
    Someone's kid just lives for today
    Ain't your problem anyway

    Cause I've got my own way, I can find my own way, cause I've got my own way
    Cause I've got my own way, I can find my own way, cause I've got my own way

    Some kind of public figure what a pain
    Just puts another rattle in your brain
    Take another green but it's not the same
    Now you're on the sand lane everyday
    Dancing with the bulls in any old way
    Running like a fox to keep up with me

    Cause I've got my own way, I can find my own way, cause I've got my own way
    Cause I've got my own way, I can find my own way, cause I've got my own way

  • Dark in the city, night is a wire
    Steam in the subway, earth is a fire
    (Do dododo dododo dododo dododo doo doo)
    Woman, you want me, give me a sign
    And catch my breathing even closer behind
    (Do dododo dododo dododo dododo doo doo)

    In touch with the ground
    I'm on the hunt, I'm after you
    Smell like I sound, I'm lost in a crowd
    And I'm hungry like the wolf

    Straddle the line in discord and rhyme
    I'm on the hunt, I'm after you
    Mouth is alive with juices like wine
    And I'm hungry like the wolf

    Stalked in the forest, too close to hide
    I'll be upon you by the moonlight side
    (Do dododo dododo dododo dododo doo doo)
    High blood drumming on your skin, it's so tight
    You feel my heat, I'm just a moment behind
    (Do dododo dododo dododo dododo doo doo)

    In touch with the ground
    I'm on the hunt, I'm after you
    Scent and a sound, I'm lost and I'm found
    And I'm hungry like the wolf

    Strut on a line, it's discord and rhyme
    I howl and I whine, I'm after you
    Mouth is alive, all running inside
    And I'm hungry like the wolf

    Hungry like the wolf
    Hungry like the wolf
    Hungry like the wolf

    Burning the ground, I break from the crowd
    I'm on the hunt, I'm after you
    I smell like I sound, I'm lost and I'm found
    And I'm hungry like the wolf

    Strut on a line, it's discord and rhyme
    I'm on the hunt, I'm after you
    Mouth is alive with juices like wine
    And I'm hungry like the wolf

    Burning the ground, I break from the crowd
    I'm on the hunt, I'm after you
    Scent and a sound, I'm lost and I'm found
    And I'm hungry like the wolf

    Strut on a line, it's discord and rhyme
    I howl and I whine, I'm after you
    Mouth is alive, all running inside
    And I'm hungry like the wolf

    Strut on a line, it's discord and rhyme
    I howl and I whine, I'm after you
    Mouth is alive

  • Moving on the floor now, babe, you're a bird of paradise
    Cherry ice cream smile, I suppose it's very nice
    With a step to your left and a flick to the right
    You catch that mirror way out west
    You know you're something special, and you look like you're the best

    Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand
    Just like that river twisting through a dusty land
    And when she shines, she really shows you all she can
    Oh, Rio, Rio dance across the Rio Grande

    I've seen you on the beach and I've seen you on TV
    Two of a billion stars, it means so much to me
    Like a birthday or a pretty view
    But then, I'm sure that you know it's just for you

    Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand
    Just like that river twisting through a dusty land
    And when she shines, she really shows you all she can
    Oh, Rio, Rio dance across the Rio Grande

    Ha ha ha, ah ha ha

    Hey now, woo, look at that
    Did she nearly run you down?
    At the end of the drive, the lawmen arrive
    You make me feel alive, alive, alive
    I'll take my chance, 'cause luck is on my side or something
    I know what you're thinking, I'll tell you something, I know what you're thinking

    Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand
    Just like that river twists across a dusty land
    And when she shines, she really shows you all she can
    Oh, Rio, Rio dance across the Rio Grande

    Her name is Rio, she don't need to understand
    And I might find her if I'm looking like I can
    Oh Rio, Rio, hear them shout across the land
    From mountains in the north down to the Rio Grande

  • I've been now sauntering
    Out and down the path sometime
    Come on, it takes me nowhere, which I knew
    Faces everywhere pulling grins and signs in things
    Telling me not there, man, it's no go
    Don't go there boy

    I need a reason
    I can't think without one now
    Too much learning got to show
    Call it treason
    Maybe catch her, don't know how
    Too many things, too much to know

    Bring my timing in, seagulls gather on the wind
    Lady screaming, lady leave me out
    'Cause sometimes people stare
    Coming down, electric chair
    And steaming crowds they gather and they shout

    Don't know why this evil bothers me
    Take another chance boy, carry the fight
    You can take him if you're fast
    So why is he trying to follow me?
    Didn't I say if you're holding on
    You'd be laughing at the last
    How many reasons do they need?
    I get along fine with them friends of mine
    But you have to make a choice
    I might just believe this time
    You're singing out of tune but the beat's in time
    And it's us who makes the noise

    I'm talking for free, I can't stop myself
    It's a new religion
    I've something to see, I can't help myself
    It's a new religion

    Okay, my reasoning might be clouded by the sun
    But someone sees the departmental lie
    You know this peacetime jabbing fist in stabbing knife
    Only get one look before you die

    Don't know why this evil bothers me
    Take another chance boy, carry the fight
    You can take him if you're fast
    So why is he trying to follow me?
    Didn't I say if you're holding on
    You'd be laughing at the last
    How many reasons do they need?
    I get along fine with them friends of mine
    But you have to make a choice
    I might just believe this time
    You're singing out of tune but the beat's in time
    And it's us who makes the noise

    I'm talking for free, I can't stop myself
    It's a new religion
    I've something to see, I can't help myself
    It's a new religion

    Gotta take pay the saints 'n sinners
    In regulation hats 'n scarves 'n things
    Walking in formation down the lane
    They carry their cross, make a church bell ring
    Army majors pull a mean cool truth
    There lying in a swimming pool
    Searching for the undeniable truth that
    A man is just a fool

    Don't know why this evil bothers me
    Take another chance boy, carry the fight
    You can take him if you're fast
    So why is he trying to follow me?
    Didn't I say if you're holding on
    You'd be laughing at the last
    How many reasons do they need?
    I get along fine with them friends of mine
    But you have to make a choice
    I might just believe this time
    You're singing out of tune but the beat's in time
    And it's us who makes the noise

    I'm talking for free, I can't stop myself
    It's a new religion
    I've something to see, I can't help myself
    It's a new religion

  • Hold back the rain

    We're miles away from nowhere
    And the wind doesn't have a name
    So call it what you want to call it
    Still blows down the lane

    People tell me, I haven't changed at all
    But I don't feel the same
    And I bet you've had that feeling too
    You can't laugh all the time

    And if the fires burn out, there's only fire to blame
    (Hold back the rain)
    No time for worry 'cause we're on the roam again
    (Hold back the rain)
    The clouds all scatter and we ride the outside lane
    (Hold back the rain)
    Not on your own so help me please... hold back the rain

    So what if the words ain't rhyming
    Did you think that it's just a game
    I probably didn't even say that right
    And I really don't give a damn

    Okay go off and wander
    I'm guilty just the same
    Sometimes you're needed badly
    So please come back again

    And if the fires burn out, there's only fire to blame
    (Hold back the rain)
    No time for worry 'cause we're on the roam again
    (Hold back the rain)
    The clouds all scatter and we ride the outside lane
    (Hold back the rain)
    Not on your own so help me please... hold back the rain

    And if the stars burn out, there's only fire to blame
    (Hold back the rain)
    No time for worry 'cause we're on the roam again
    (Hold back the rain)
    The clouds all scatter and we ride the outside lane
    (Hold back the rain)
    Not on your own so help me please hold back the rain

    Hold back the rain...
    Hold back the rain...
    Hold back the rain...
    Hold back the rain...
    Hold back the rain...
    Hold back the rain...
    Hold back the rain

    And if the fires burn out, there's only fire to blame
    No time for worry 'cause we're on the roam again
    The clouds all scatter and we ride the outside lane
    Not on your own so help me please hold back the rain

    (Hold back the rain)
    And if the stars burn out, there's only fire to blame
    (Hold back the rain)
    No time for worry 'cause we're on the roam again
    (Hold back the rain)
    The clouds all scatter and we ride the outside lane
    (Hold back the rain)
    Not on your own so help me please hold back the rain
    Hold back the rain...
    Hold back the rain...
    Hold back the rain...
    Hold back the rain...
    Hold back the rain...
    Hold back the rain...
    Hold back the rain...

  • If I listen close, I can hear them singers, ho, oh, oh
    Voices in your body coming through on the radio

    Telegram force and ready
    I knew this was a big mistake
    There's a fine line drawing my senses together
    And I think it's about to break

    If I listen close, I can hear them singers, ho, oh, oh
    Voices in your body coming through on the radio

  • The-the-the-the-the reflex
    The reflex
    The reflex
    The reflex-fle-fle-fle-fle-flex

    You've gone too far this time
    And I'm dancing on the valentine
    I tell you somebody's fooling around
    With my chances on the danger line

    I'll cross that bridge when I find it
    Another day to make my stand, oh whoa
    High time is no time for deciding
    If I should find a helping hand, oh whoa

    Why don't you use it?
    Try not to bruise it
    Buy time, don't lose it

    Why----

    I'm on a ride
    Roundabout

    Why-y-y-y-y why why why-y-y (yeah)
    Why-y-y-y-y why why why-y-y (yeah)
    Why-y-y-y-y don't you use it?

    The reflex is a lonely child
    Who's waiting in the park
    The reflex is a door to
    Finding treasure in the dark

    And watching over lucky clover
    Isn't that bizarre?
    Every little thing the reflex does
    Leaves me answered with a question mark

    So why don't you use it?
    Try not to bruise it
    Buy time, don't lose it

    The reflex is a lonely child
    Who's waiting by the park
    The reflex is a door to
    Finding treasure in the dark

    And watching over lucky clover
    Isn't that bizarre?
    Every little thing the reflex does
    Leaves you answered with a question mark

    Oh, the reflex what a game
    He's hiding all the cards
    The reflex is in charge of
    Finding treasure in the dark

  • The wild boys are calling
    On their way back from the fire
    In august moon's surrender to
    A dust cloud on the rise
    Wild boys fallen far from glory
    Reckless and so hungered
    On the razors edge you trail
    Because there's murder by the roadside
    In a sore afraid new world

    They tried to break us
    Looks like they'll try again

    Wild boys never lose it
    Wild boys never chose this way
    Wild boys never close your eyes
    Wild boys always shine

    You got sirens for a welcome
    There's bloodstain for your pain
    And your telephone been ringing while
    You're dancing in the rain
    Wild boys wonder where is glory
    Where is all you angels
    Now the figureheads have fell
    And lovers war with arrows over
    Secrets they could tell

    They tried to tame you
    Looks like they'll try again

    Wild boys never lose it
    Wild boys never chose this way
    Wild boys never close your eyes
    Wild boys always shine

  • Shake up the picture the lizard mixture
    With your dance on the eventide
    You got me coming up with answers
    All of which I deny

    I said it again
    But could I please rephrase it
    Maybe I can catch a ride
    I couldn't really put it much plainer
    But I'll wait 'til you decide

    Send me your warning siren
    As if I could ever hide
    Last time La Luna
    I light my torch and wave it for the

    New moon on Monday
    And a fire dance through the night
    I stayed the cold day with a lonely satellite

    New moon on Monday
    And a fire dance through the night
    I stayed the cold day with a lonely satellite

    Breaking away with the best of both worlds
    A smile that you can't disguise
    And every minute I keep finding
    Clues that you leave behind

    Save me from these reminders
    As if I'd forget tonight
    This time La Luna
    I light my torch and wave it for the

    New moon on Monday
    And a fire dance through the night
    I stayed the cold day with a lonely satellite

    New moon on Monday
    And a fire dance through the night
    I stayed the cold day with a lonely satellite

    I light my torch and wave it for the
