Roll Up And Shine
why don't you take a look in my mouth
why don't you take a look at yourself
so why don't you take a look around
so why don't we take a look inside
roll out the shock parade
free falling from a stage
performance and cocktails
roll up and shine
I hang the devil from a circus wire
face up seats four in love spittin fire
so why don't you take a look around
so why don't we take a look inside
it's time to live it's time to love
it's time to do what's afraid of
it's time to breathe time to relieve
it's time to shine
so why don't you take a look around
so why don't we take a look inside
roll out the shock parade
free falling from a stage
performance and cocktails
roll up and shine
bring on your shock parade
freaks falling from the stage
performance and cocktails
roll up and shineback to top
The Bartender And The Thief
when you think about it he's watching
every word you say hey dazed and when
he's sussed you out he calls her up and out
she comes and hustles us
the bartender and the thief are lovers
steal what they need like sisters and
brothers
met in a church a night to remember
robbing the graves of bodies
dismembered
he watched the lesbian talk she kissed and
groped but mostly talked in lust crushed
he couldn't make the call his eyes were
gripped on licking tongues enough's enough
failed for once
long digging gone fishing love
drinking
the bartender and the thief are lovers
steal what they need like sisters and
brothers
met in a church a night to remember
robbing the graves of bodies
dismembered
saved what they stole to meet at the alter
place where they first set eyes on each
other
flew to the sun to start life all over
set up a bar and robbed all the localsback to top
Hurry Up And Wait
we wait to wake to get a ride in the rain
buy a ticket they can check we can claim
so we don't spend what's our own for a
seat a place to stop a green light a red
cross they run around naked doing old
things like the ones before
wait for a break so you can take a little
something that'll make your next break
come along a little quicker than the one
before wait for an answer spy a sweet
dancer as she walks from the door of the
hall wish you waited for your wedding
vows so hurry up and wait
but what's worth waiting for?
we wait to get warm the car starts from
cold stall to make a first move magazines
made the rules to make us lose wait for
your dream man the house you could both
plan the car in the sales ad the wet dream
with the man you wished that you had
a watched pot never boils sugars seconds
to dissolve see your appetite lost foods
relevance is lost inside
so hurry up and wait
but what's worth waiting for?
so join the queue me and you
wait in line it takes our
time to be satisfiedback to top
Pick A Part That's New
I've never been here before
Didn't know where to go
Never met you before
I've never been to your home
That smells not unknown
Foot steps made of stone
Walking feels familiar
You can do all the things that
Youlike to do
All around underground pick a part
That's new
You can do all the things that
You like to do
All around upside down pick a part
That's new
People drinking on their own
Push buttons on the phone
Was I here once before
Is that my voice on the phone
That last drink on my own
Did I ever leave at all
Confusions familiar
So what's new to youback to top
Just Looking
There's things I want
There's things I think I want
There's things I've had
There's things I wanna have
Do I want the dreams
The ones we're forced to see
Do I want the perfect wife
The word perfect ain't quite right
Shopping every day
Take it back the next break
They say the more you fly the more you
Risk your life
I'm just looking I'm not buying
I'm just looking keeps me smiling
A house I seen another coulda' been
You drenched my head and said what I said
You said that life is what you make of it
Yet most of us just fake
I'm just looking, I'm not buying
I'm just looking, keeps me smilingback to top
Half The Lies You Tell Ain't True
You could lick or chew tongue in style
Tonight champagne drag queen suit pinstripe
Outta line it's time to try how blisters
On your feet blisters up your spine
If I could choose from two
I'd mime to be a smile
But when you rely on a lie that's true
And no one believes in the things you do
'cause half of the lies you tell ain't
True I'm gonna find out I'm gonna find a
Piece of you
You could pick and lose diesel dreams for
Crime I should win and choose colours
Undersize a naked fake that's a face that
Fits
For two sex brings out the spies hanging
From your feet hollywood star style but
When you rely on a lie that's true
No one believes in the things you do
'cause half of the lies you tell
Ain't true
I'm gonna find out, I'm gonna find a piece
Of youback to top
I Wouldn't Believe Your Radio
Travelling through
A tunnel under sea
You never know if it cracks in half
You're never ever gonaa see me
But you can have it all if you like
You can have it all if you like and
You can pay for it the rest of your
Life...life
I wouldn't believe your wireless radio
If I had myself a flying giraffe
You'd have one in a box with a window
But you can have it all if you like
You can have it all if you like
And you can pay for it the rest of your
Life...life
Life in the summer's on it's back
You'd have to agree that that's the crack
So take what you want I'm not comin'
Backback to top
T-Shirt Sun Tan
He was walking 'round to you one said
French afternoon so he called in to a shop
For two he brought himself an ice drink a
Totally tropical nice drink then he saw
What he thought was you in a room he
Tought about goin' over but you were
Always much older abd your sex dressed
Breasts impressed too he'd really like to
Get it together before the twelve of never
So he's coming over it's when all the
Phases come around
The clothes you wear the sex and love
It's enough for the time outta touch out of
Luck he always liked them older so that his
Top lip touched on her shoulder
Lionized undisguisedkill for you like to
Show you his teeshirt suntan like to show
You his minute head stand then a gun spun
Open from you to me to me to youback to top
Is Yesterday,Tomorrow,Today?
It's another way to get through the day
Picking up ripped cigarette boxes hoping that one remains
Yellow lucky day suck deep and bathe
For the next ten minutes spent coughing on the pleasures craved
Write down all the things that you'd like to say
Write down all the things that you'd like to change
Write down all the places you'd like to stay
Write down anything that you want

Is yesterday, tomorrow, today?
Is nothing gonna change the way?

Crack rock top wall
Let the ash to fall
Left alone to wait
I've never looked at things
I've liked only things I hate
You're not the first today
You're not the softest face

Was there any that your liked,
Was there any that you did'nt fake?

Write down all the things that youd like to be
Write down all the things that you dont believe
Write down all the places you'd like to see
Write down anything that you want

Is yesterday tomorrow today?
Is nothing gonna change the way?

Because everything that you
And the things that you like to do
And all of the things that are
Come back again
Come back again
Come back again
Come back again
Come back again

Is yesterday, tomorrow, today?back to top
A Minute Longer
They're calling out
Come on lets go
But I'm miles away
To a year before
Laughs from a glass
Drank to the past
On the old green seat
Like velvet to the hand
Think I'd like to stay a minute longer
Would you like to stay a minute longer?
Last one for some
Sick from the rum
I play golf on the carpet with someone
Crash back to date
Few things I hate
But I'd rather us live
In the present dayback to top
She Takes Her Clothes Off
She's got another fantasy
She lives in flat number twenty three
Picked first prize for carnival queen
And now she takes her clothes off
Collects the covers off her magazines
She longs to be another teenage dream
The problem is she's turning forty three
She still takes her clothes off
She got the nick name porta bubble joan
They found her dead dead as nails at home
And she said I'm gonna be another marilyn
Bleach my hair and get real thin
And everybody's gonna wanna dance with me
She loved to have her little fantasies
She longed to be the wife of jimmy dean
But jimmys head sits in jimmys knees
She loves to take her clothes off
Police are looking around at twenty three
They found her hanging from her swollen
Feet they saw her dance last in woolworth
Street
She loved to take her clothes off
She got the nick name porta bubble joan
They found her dead dead as nails at home
And she said I'm gonna be another marilyn
Bleach my hair and get real thin
And everybody's gonna wanna dance with me
Everybody wants to be the carnival queen
Everybody wants to be the carnival
King or queen
We all read the books
She takes her clothes off one by one
Off againback to top
Plastic California
Looks like blackpool
Outta date
Some love some hate
It's all your competition
It's not my occupation true
But it's what you do
Some love some hate
I like pink architecture
Flip back my red strip deck chair
Prove we got nothing to prove
Gin stroke amnesia problems
Overhearing talk of hollywood
We wish we could ya should
Some love some hate
It's a beautiful place for nature
And all the beautiful people make it true
But you look good as you
Some love some hate
Makes me feel great
I feel new d'ya feel new ha ha
Well I'm pleased to meet youback to top
I Stopped To Fill My Car Up
I stopped to fill my car up
The car felt good that day
I didn't know where I was going
But it felt good for a change
A five and a pocket full of silver
I paid the lady no change
And then it started to piss down
I started driving again
And then I looked up
And looked in the mirror behind me
A man round forty in the back seat
Must have stepped in when I was empty
So why's he sat there just waiting
Likely to smash my face in
He had a bag full of money
He said just drive me away
I didn't know where I was going
Yet it felt good to be strange
And still I look up
And look in the mirror behind me
Curiosity is over
He stepped down from the car
He pulled a gun from his jacket
Said I was going to die
It gives me so much satisfaction
To watch you beg and cry
Well I just made up this story
To get your attention makes me smile
I never looked up or looked
In the mirror behind meback to top
