Track Name: Liar Liar
I am a liar I give the truth scope,
Embellishing here, a little whopper there,
A life woven with pulp fiction,
A rich tapestry of fabrication,

Don’t feed me lies,
You can’t handle the truth
Just look me in the eyes,
You can’t handle the truth
Lie one more time I’ll chop it off at the root
Ok - your bum looks big in that.

Sometimes lying is better than the truth,
Depends upon what you what you want to hear,
Do you enjoy being miserable?
We all tell porkies,

Don’t feed me lies,
You can’t handle the truth
Just look me in the eyes,
You can’t handle the truth
Lie one more time I’ll chop it off at the root
Ok - I’ve a problem with you being gay.

Don’t feed me lies,
You can’t handle the truth
Just look me in the eyes,
You can’t handle the truth
Lie one more time I’ll chop it off at the root
Ok - I want to tie you up and do unspeakable things.

Just feed me lies,
I can’t handle the truth
Don’t look me in the eyes,
I can’t handle the truth
Lie one more time as long as it doesn’t hurt you
Ok - It seems I am i love with..
Track Name: Angel
I can see an Angel, looking over me,
But she doesn’t think I’ve seen her,
She is very lovely, beautiful perhaps,
But she’s not very good looking,

It’s inside she’s beautiful,
She shines inside

I can see and Angel looking over me,
But she doesn’t think I’ve seen her,
Unobtrusively watching everything I do,
It seems to fascinate her,
Smiling when I’m glad,
Frowning when I’m sad,
She empathises with me.
Track Name: H.I.L.
Can’t believe it’s so crazy, crazy,
Before this nothing fazed me, it’s amazing,

You make me fly, don’t know why,
But I’m hopelessly in love with you,
And your smile, in a while,
I will find myself just melting away,
Anyday, I would stay, just to swim into those wonderful eyes,
Swear no lie, you hypnotise me,
I am hopelessly in love with you

It’s so crazy, crazy,
You make me feel I can do almost anything at all,
And when you’re gone I feel so low and apathetic,
Until I think of you, I think of you all the time,
Is that pathetic.

You might tell me that, all I talk is nonsense,
But just get your facts right, it’s just 90%,
Leaves a meaningful 10 for you, 10 out of 10 for you

Only you, make me free,
I can’t see my way forward without,
You and I, side by side,
This is frightening but wonderful too,
Make me fly, don’t ask why,
I am hopelessly in love you,
And your smile, you hypnotise me,
I am hopelessly in love with you.
Track Name: Graceful Rabbits
No I can’t be, anything like him,
The man of your dreams,
But I could pretend to be somebody else,
It wouldn’t last, although for a short while,
We would go dancing, converse through the night,
You’d give me the world’s most gorgeous high,
Then I’d be cut down,
You’d find a new buddy, and I would just die,

If you’d have told me I would be here,
I’d have laughed out loud,
And called you a clown,

For being so silly,
Now what should I do?
You took me for a ride,
Now I am lost, nothing to you, you apathise me.

If you’d have told me I would be here,
I’d have laughed out loud,
And how can this be, that this thing that, makes you feel so complete,
Can bring so much pain, and leave you so empty,
No, no, no, oh yes,
I cannot live without you,
Don’t want to see you at all,
Make me feel so small,
You make me so big,

Running salt water, deputy daughter,
Rabbits on high, jumping to die with graceful splendour,
You see nothing makes sense, not anymore,
Please not anymore,

And if you could tell me,
That I could be there,
I’d move heaven and Earth,
And if you could tell me,
That you care,
Just a little,
That would be fine,
I just need to see you,
That’s why I cannot.
Track Name: Altered State Of Mind
Are we too intelligent to view our stark reality through eyes so unsoftened and minds of clearest thought?
Be it T.V. or nicotine, alcohol or heroin,
Chocolate, calming love bundled chocolate,

I’m in an altered state of mind,
So if you’d be so kind,
Turn down the lights, turn down the lights on reality,
Turn down the lights, turn down the lights,
There’s really nothing with me this way,

Like comfortable worn in shoes that slip on easy,
Life could be pleasant for any lazy man,
But will you be so satisfied when waking up it’s clear,
Reality sits in the basket of wasted dreams,

I’m in an altered state of mind,
So if you’d be so kind,
Turn down the lights, turn down the lights on reality,
Turn down the lights, turn down the lights,
There’s really nothing with me this way,
I like it this way, let’s go out and play,
I could do this all day.
Track Name: I'd Have Her
I’ll tell you a story of a boy that went to sea,
To escape from his own longing, for a girl he couldn’t see,
So jealous, so hungry, so sad this tale don’t end happily,
Far at sea in his bottle, he whispers silently to the sea,

I’d have her, if she’d let me,
But I know I’d let her down,
I’d try to, so gently,
Forget this pain and turn the ship around.

Running away live for today, pillaging dating and general play,
A pirates life for me but it’s no dash comedy,
Divine intervention of course would be the only salvation,
But the boy is atheist no remorse,

You’ll find him floating down the river dressed in black,
He don’t know where he’s going, but he won’t be coming back.
Track Name: Billy
There she is in a crowded bar, he wanders over because he doesn’t care,
No worries,
Disarms her with his smile, a few teeth missing but she don’t really care,
She’s not fussy,
And so they chat they drink, they’re drunk,
He tells her he’s a serial scientist,
On a mission,

He lives in fantasy it’s far less painful there,
His mind protects him he don’t care,
No ties, no baggage, no responsibility,
And no-one to ease his misery,

She tells him she dances, erotic arabian belly style,
Makes him smile,
She asks him questions, it’s a tool she’s not interested,
In his answers,

Such shallow sophistication,
No complication,

they live in fantasy, it’s far less painful there,
Their minds protect them they don’t care
No ties, no baggage, no responsibility,
No-one to ease their misery,

He says he’s a pilot, testing all the lastest in designs,
She says she’s an actress, should see her in her party dress,
He tells her that he’s loaded, just likes to dress down when he’s in town,
She is a princess, waiting for a toad to kiss her,
He is the King of all you see...

But they choose not to reveal, what they carry will steal the life from the other,
Slowly (Aquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome).
Track Name: 15
I was 15 and at the top of my game,
Then I discovered boys and Benson & Hedges,
If I could turn the clocks back would I do the same?
Would I? Could I?

But I was 15,
And at the top of my game
Then I discovered boys and Benson & Hedges,
If I could turn the clocks back would I do the same?
Would I? Should I? Could I?
There’s no question,
I was 15 and at the top of my game,
But I discovered boys and Benson & Hedges,
But I was 15..
Track Name: Fairies
I see fairies, they come to me,
Talking, dancing, giving me chances to be,
Yes I see them with my own eyes, see them with my own eyes,
Hear them with my ears,

Fairy, fairy, quite contrary,
Will you help me with much more than teeth,
Help me make my life complete,
Pretty please..

People tell me it’s O.K. I’m special,
But are they helping, who is real in the this world?
Yes I hear them but I;m sure they’re lying,
Watch them just looking and spying,
Tokens, but nobody’s trying,

Fairy, fairy, quite contrary,
Will you help me with much more than teeth,
Help me make my life complete,
Help to get me back onto my feet,

I see fairies

Yes I see them with my own eyes, I see them with my own eyes
I see them with my own eyes, I see them I hear them I feel them,
But I can’t touch them,
Those fairies, those fairies,
They tease me.
Track Name: Lying In The Grass
You make me happy.
Track Name: Lack Of Restraint
I’m wrestling with my mind, which fantasy I should indulge in,
I’ve got to wake up sometime, but not today,
Just give me time and spaces,
Give me false hope, I’ll take it,

I’ve done it again, why can’t I show a little touch of restraint,
It’s not much to ask intentions start high, until I touch you,
So where do we go from here?

The voice of reason appears to be senseless,
The choice is mono - it’s down to my weakness,
Just give time and space, give me false signs I’ll take them

I’ve done it again, why can’t I show a little touch of restraint,
It’s not much to ask intentions start high, until I touch you,
So where do we go from here?
With nothing to say or do.

Just give me rhyme and reason, I’ll justify this treason.
