End of Time

Its clear by now that the whole foundation’s crumbling
And the closer it gets, the sharper the axe, the wilder the swing
Storms all over the world
Seawater getting higher
Airplanes crashing and burning
Pope predicting a riot

Maybe you’ll make it to the moon
There’s a rocket just for you
Taking off amongst the ruins
Just go forth and multiply
Kiss your ass, wave it goodbye
I’ll see you at the end of time

I need some way to just cut into this atmosphere
But when it’s cutting up rough you’ve got to take that stuff, you’ve got to show no fear
Storms all over the world
Seawater getting higher
Airplanes crashing and burning
Pope predicting a riot

Forever’s in free fall
Love letters unrecalled
You burned them all

Dangerous Friend

I’ve tried to leave you time and time again
My dangerous friend
Guess you’ll be with me to the bitter end
My dangerous friend
Cos you won’t take no for an answer
No you won’t take no for an answer
And when my head is tired and my feet are lame
My dangerous friend wants to keep on playing yeah
Wants to keep on playing

Seen all the wicked things that you can do
My dangerous friend
Always seem to wind up defending you
My dangerous friend
Cos you won’t take no for an answer
No you won’t take no for an answer
And when my head is tired and my feet are lame
My dangerous friend wants to keep on playing yeah
Wants to keep on playing

Ms Supercool

Oh won’t you come on in
We can live in sin
Ah look at the state I’m in
Only you can end my suffering
I’m low on the social scale
I lie on a bed of nails
A hole in the heart of Wales
Can you see my vapour trail?

I’m looking for you
Ms Supercool
Where are you to?

We met through a mutual friend
Had sex in a little tent
You said goodbye, that’s what you meant
Our beginning was our end
I tried to resume my life
But now I was sanctified
The Earth was not for my kind
Excuse me while I kiss the sky

I’m looking for you
Ms Supercool
Where are you to?

Helpless Love

There’s a land
And it’s not so far away
I can smell the gas
Drifting down the motorway
Baby’s started growing up
Suckling on helpless, helpless love
Baby’s started growing up
Suckling on helpless, helpless love

The changing man
Become a china doll
The setting sun
Become another black hole
AIDS victims going up
Nurses offering helpless, helpless love
AIDS victims going up
Nurses offering helpless, helpless love

Losing my Self-Control

I felt so sure that you’d show up, even at last orders
It hit me hard when I found out just what the score was
I raised a beer glass to my lips
Somehow it shattered in my grip
And now the looks all turn so cold
Am I losing myself, losing myself, losing myself, losing my self-control?

I cant remember getting back, my head was racing
I didn’t know the man in the mirror I was facing
You never answered when I rang
I just left that phone to hang

Am I losing myself, losing myself, losing myself, losing my self-control?

We had a contract and I thought that it was understood
My trust is shattered now, I close my eyes, but it’s no good

Take any route to rid myself of this frustration
But every action that I make, it’s just the same sensation
And when I get my senses back
I’m going to still be on the rack
Why do I torture myself? I don’t know
Am I losing myself, losing myself, losing myself, losing my self-control?

Who Do You Love?

Got a pain in my head that won’t go away
I’m tired of waiting for your love status to change
The future is you and I
Message me now, I will reply

Bring it on
Who do you love?

I’m sat in your car singing to la
Got your girlfriends wondering where you are
The future is crystal clear
Your past is a sham, your present is here

Bring it on
Who do you love?

Come Home Soon

Oh beautiful, come home soon
You’ve drawn the line, you’ve crossed the moon
You know there’s nothing left to prove
So beautiful, come home soon
I’ve heard the cry of lonely toms
The howling wolf, the old lion
I know the words to every tune
It’s beautiful, come home soon

Your Hell is my Heaven

I love you so much it hurts
I love you so much it doesn’t work
I know you need time on your own
But I can’t leave you alone

There’s something about you
I panic without you
I’m wishing my life away
24/7
Your hell is my heaven

I’ll email you songs at work
And when you come home you can wear my shirt
And if you take off for the moon
I’ll be following soon

Butterflies and blue horizons
Symphonies and starry skies
All the universe is in your eyes

The Moment’s Gone

I’ve been down on the bush telegraph
I’ve been following your shining path
I want to know all that you know
I want to see all that you see
I want to be all that you are now

But I keep replaying that day on the beach
Your hips swaying and still out of reach
I want to know all that you know
I want to see all that you see
I want to be all that you are now

But the moment’s gone
Just like a summer song
And I can’t stop the turning of the world
Yeah the moment’s gone
I got the moment wrong
And I can’t even start to call you girl

I’ve been staring at your photograph
I’m half drunk on your permanent laugh
I want to know all that you know
I want to see all that you see
I want to be all that you are now

What a stupid thing to do
Plan my future without you

Love Was Not Enough

I still recall Amazing Grace playing
As a quarter million streamed across a field
Rumours of a new world coming
Turning like a wheel within a wheel

But love, love, love
Love was not enough
No love, love, love
Was never enough

I saw you in the soul tent dancing
And I knew my ship was coming in that day
Promise of a long hot summer
Turned to lies and misadventure on the way

And love, love, love
Love was not enough
No love, love, love
Was never enough
