Track Name: Godamnesia
TWO IN A WELL-LINED CAVE COME TO LIFE
IN THE WORLDWIDE WEB
TIME CANNOT EVER BE ALLOWED TO RIPEN
IN THE WOMB LOVE LEFT A TRACE
AND WE’RE ALL CHASING IT AGAIN

BLIND I FIND THE COLOURS THAT I LIKE
YOU CANNOT CHOOSE YOUR HEART
CANNOT FIGHT YOUR DARK SIDE
AS IT’S FIRING ARROWS THROUGH YOUR ARMOUR
AS THOUGH IT WAS MADE OF PAPER AND JELLY
I’M A BLUE MOON GIRL

TRIED MY HAND AT MANAGING A STORM
YOU CANNOT FAKE A SONG
BIGGER PLAN IN THE SKY
AS IT’S SHOOTING STARS
INTO MY DEEPEST WISHING WELL
MADE OF QUAVERS AND FEATHERS
I’M A BLUE MOON GIRL
Track Name: Inspector
POPPIES IN THE FIELD SAID DON’T CRY
POPPIES IN THE FIELD SAID DADDY DON’T LIE

PART OF THE WALL IS CHIPPED
GOD IS TELLING ME SOMETHING
PART OF THE SKY IS LIT
GOD IS TELLING ME SOMETHING

I WANT A FAKE GUN
I WANNA FEEL LIKE I’VE BEEN WON ON A RIDE
I WANT TO GET CHILLS
I WANNA LASSO MY OWN THRILLS
I WANNA PEEL OFF LAYERS AND SIZZLE

POPPIES IN THE FIELD SAID DON’T SIGH
POPPIES IN THE FIELD SAID DADDY DON’T LIE

GOODBYE CHARLIE
INSPECTOR HAS EVOLVED BEYOND THE HERD
Track Name: Blur
SIGHED OFF THE EDGE OF A PHRASE
THAT I’D BEEN HOLDING ONTO ALL MY LIFE
IT CAME AROUND AND BIT ME IN THE ARSE
AND I FOUND GOD
IN THE MIDDLE OF LONGING FOR ANOTHER ‘NOW’
THIS PLAYFUL DOG CAME AROUND AND
LICKED MY FACE RIGHT OUT OF THIS CLOUD
I FOUND GOD. I FELL UP

BLUR INTO KNOWING WHO YOU’RE LIVING
BLUR INTO SEEING WHAT YOU’RE WEAVING IN
BLUR INTO EVERYTHING YOU’RE FEELING
BLUR INTO BRINGING EVERY SEASON IN

SPIED INTO MOTIVES I THOUGHT WERE PURE INTENTIONS
ALL OF MY LIFE AND I FOUND ANOTHER VOICE INSIDE MY HEAD
RIGHT AND WRONG WAS AN IDEA POURED DOWN MY THROAT
AND IT MADE ME NEAR-CHOKE ON LIFE WHEN IT WAS WINTER
TIL I FELL INTO THE DARK AND I FOUND GOD

WHO WOULD’VE KNOWN? WHO’D HAVE EVEN GUESSED IT SO?
WHO WOULD’VE KNOWN? BRIGADOON IS BOUND TO BRING YOU SORROW
CLINGING TO THE TIDE (THE EVIL EYE MUST DIE)
Track Name: Kamikaze Karma
BY THE BUBBLE BATH I CALIBRATE
THE STRENGTH OF THEIR VENOMOUS BITE
WITH MY BLURRY EYES I VOUCH FOR CIRCLES
IN THIS THING CALLED LIFE
I CAN NEVER PLAIN DETECT OR
WITH MY SHARPEST INSTRUMENT FIND
ANY SORT OF TRUTH THAT DOESN’T
CRACK AND BURN AT THE FIRST LIGHT

LIAR LIAR CAN’T YOU SEE
YOUR PANTS ON FIRE HERE WITH ME
LIAR LIAR CAN’T YOU TELL
THE BODY’S WHERE YOU GO TO HELL
IT’S A FUN FACT TO MAKE FRIENDS WITH
AND DON’T YOU FORGET OUR SUNPACT
EFFECTIVE FROM WHEN YOUR
DNA HIT THE GROUND AND BECAME GOD

KAMIKAZE KARMA ON MY BACK
EVERYTHING’S IN PAIN FROM TOO MUCH SLACK
KAMIKAZE KARMA ON MY BACK
Track Name: The Fall
DIDN’T I BELONG BY BITTER PILLS
I FORGOT ALL THAT I HAVE LEARNT
MY HEAD OOZES OUT OF ME
COME OUT OF A FIRE MY SPECIAL TREAT
I HAVE FRIENDS THAT I APPEAL TO
FOR SWEET MELODIES

DIDN’T I CONDONE MY SINNER’S DESIRE
FORGAVE SHADOWS OF A LIFE
I CAN’T EVEN REMEMBER
PEOPLE HANG THEIR HEAD WITH HEAVY GRIEF
MY HAND THERE INVISIBLE
ON THEIR CROWN LIKE A FLOWER

BOUNCE BACK, FALL BACK
Track Name: Rapture
BLAZE RIGHT INTO THE ARMS OF LIFE
ACROSS HER FEATHERED WINGS
GAZE LONG INTO HER DARK EYES
AND THEY WILL STARE BACK AT YOU
NOTHING LEFT TO DO BUT GIVE IN TOO SOON
IKARUS KNEW HE DIED FOR RAPTURE

OWL WORDS ON THE STAVE
SHAKE JUST LIKE A PARTICLE
SWAY JUST LIKE A WAVE
I’M CHARMED LIKE A SERPENT SERVANT
THAT HAS GIVEN IN
ITS MIND AND ITS WAY OF BEING TO THE VOID
I’M LOOSE LIKE A FIRE
I’M FINALLY FREE TO TAKE ORDERS
FROM NONE IN THE NIGHT

STAY FLOATING ON A VAGUE CLOUD ARM
ACROSS A TRICKSTER SKY
SPACE LONGING TO DEVOUR
EVERY ONE OF YOUR TIMELY PLANS
NOTHING LEFT TO DO BUT GIVE IN TOO SOON
IKARUS KNEW HE DIED FOR RAPTURE!
Track Name: Sound Tripper
FOUND BY A HUMAN ORDER OF A SOUNDCARD
THAT COMES WITH LAUGHING POWDER
WOUND UP A NEVERENDING WELL OF
CYBER SOUND-CHARDS AND FIREPOWER

DREAMCATCHER, RAINMAKER, SORCERER, DICTATOR
SOUNDMAKER, DREAMWEAVER, HEALER AND OWL
TRAILING DRESSES OF A FAIRY EMPRESS TRIPPING ON A LEAF
DREAMCATCHER, RAINMAKER, SORCERER, DICTATOR
SOUNDMAKER, DREAMWEAVER, HEALER AND OWL
TRAILING DRESSES OF A FAIRY EMPRESS TRIPPING ON
AN AUTUMN LEAF CHILD (WINTER IN AN HOURGLASS)

WINTER AT THE END COMING AGAIN
WRINKLES AT THE END ARE WINKING AGAIN
Track Name: Blows & Arrows
BLUE, IT LASHES OUT AFTER DARK
IN FULL BLOOM IT CARVES OUT A PRETTY SCAR
BLUE, BRUISED INTO LIFE

PUNCHES FALL I SEE THEM HIT THIS SKIN
I TELL NO STORY ‘BOUT THE STATE I’M IN

BLUE, IT LASHES OUT AFTER DARK
IN FULL VIEW IT PULLS TIL YOU BREAK APART
BLUE, LURED INTO LIFE

A CRACK IN THE DOOR INTO MY ROOM WHERE I STAND
BEND MY BOW BACK AND LET THE ARROW FLY
INTO MY HEART LIKE A HUNTER IN TRANCE
BEND MY BOW BACK AND LET THE ARROW FLY
IN THE DOOR INTO MY ROOM WHERE I STAND
BEND MY BOW BACK AND LET THE ARROW SPY
INTO MY HEART LIKE A HUNTER IN TRANCE
Track Name: Telephiles
TAKEN TO A SHOW WHERE I LAY FLAT CRYING
TAKEN TO A SHOW WHERE I WAS WEAK CARRYING A BURDEN
TAKEN TO A SHOW WHERE I COULD DRAW THE CURTAIN
TAKEN BY SURPRISE WHEN I KNEW IT WAS ALL PRETEND

LOVE NEST BREAKS DOWN WHEN THE WINDS HIT
THEY MAKE THE WORLD GO ROUND

BREAKING LIKE A WAVE UPON A ROCKY SHORE
BREAKING LIKE A MIRROR THAT CAN TAKE ITSELF NO MORE
FALLING LIKE A LEAF THAT NEVER HAD TO THINK ‘FALL’
BROKE INTO A SMILE WHEN I KNEW IT WAS ALL PRETEND

TELLING A WHITE LIE MADE ‘EM INTO YELLOW BELLY PILES
TELLING A WHITE LIE MADE ‘EM INTO LAZY TELEPHILES
Track Name: Seeing Stars
STARS ARE ON FIRE!

CANNOT PUT MY FEET UP
DOESN’T SEEM A GOOD FIT
CANNOT PUT MY FEET UP
KARMA’S PINNING ME DOWN

WHAT IF I SAID NOTHING MEANS ANYTHING?

BYE BYE BYE BIRD ON A WIRE
WAITING FOR A BITE-SIZED CLOUD
Track Name: Voodoo Tube
SUN BLINDNESS HELPS US STEP BACK
FROM KINDNESS THAT BITES TOO HARD
SUN BLINDNESS HELPS US STEP BACK
FROM NICENESS THAT STICKS LIKE MUD

SUN YOU SHINE ON EVERYONE NO CHOOSING
NO TRAGIC GLUE CAN STICK TO YOU
WHATS IN A HOLLOW VOODOO TUBE?

SUN BLINDNESS HELPS US STEP BACK
FROM KINDNESS THAT TRIES TOO HARD

BUT SETH FLIES DOWN THE PATH OF THE NOW
IN A BEAUTY PARLOUR SIGHS A PARALYSED MARILYN
STUCK IN A STAGE BOW
Track Name: The Wanderer
THOUGHT THAT I MIGHT FIND
A STABLE BRANCH TO LAND ON
BUT I’M MADE FOR FLYING
HAVEN’T GOT THE FEET
TO CLUTCH ONTO A RESTING PLACE
I’M ON A WILD GOOSE CHASE

PINNED MY HOPES ON VANISHING LANDS
THOUGHT I COULD BE CAUGHT LIKE
SMOKE WITH TWO HANDS, ALIVE
I’M A WANDERER ON THE EDGES OF A PLAN
FEATHERS DROPPING OFF ONE BY ONE

THOUGHT THAT I MIGHT FIND
A STABLE HOME TO GO TO
BUT I’M MADE FOR TRAVELING
HAVEN’T FOUND A WAY TO KEEP MY
FLUID COLOURED WINGS
FROM CHANGING EACH DAY

BLUE TILES RUN ALL OVER MY EYELIDS
IT’S FUN, BUTTERFLIES ARE MY PLUS ONE
BLUE TILES RUN ALL OVER MY BACKYARD
IT’S FUN, RUN AROUND IN THE WARM SUN
