Lyrics

Ready To Go
Are we having a power cut?
Are your lights still on? (Are your lights still on?)
Let’s head to the power station
Find out what’s really going on (I'd like to know)

Keep watching the horizon but it don’t come
Keep holding back the idle tears of want
They say you’re not ready to go

Tearing your heart right out
They just say we’ll let you know (We'll let you know)
And was it an accident?
The way they served you up whole (They served you whole)

Keep watching the horizon but it don’t come
Keep holding back the idle tears of want
They say you’re not ready to go

TOP

Leave It Alone
Say you made it top of your class
Well somebody had to finish last
If you think that you are better than them
I don’t think that you’ve learnt anything

If your heart isn’t in it man maybe you should go
I don’t know what the future holds any more
But I can’t leave it alone

You pointed to an apogee
We began to dream those golden dreams
Now you’re gone but we won’t bottle it up
Drink your poison but it’s not enough

Started up - we’re in motion now and we can’t let go
I don’t know what the future holds any more
But I can’t leave it alone

If your heart isn’t in it man maybe you should go
I don’t know what the future holds any more
But I can’t leave it alone

The Chemicals
I detect a bump in the road up ahead
Maybe I turned right when I should have turned left
If there’s a stumbling block then I’ll fall over it every single time
I see a girl with a pretty face
She’s another chance to make a mistake
You’d think I’d have enough of the chances we take
But I fall for it again

I’ve got a funny feeling about this
I’m set alight by your poisonous kiss, girl - uh-oh
I’ve got a funny feeling about this
Step away from those memories and give in to this
Surely just a moments bliss

The chemicals, they rot your brain and they drive you wild
They’re everywhere I seem to turn
I want them all

I’ve got a tingling feeling in my spine
Oh Lord I’d like to believe that that feeling was mine
But deep down, we know, how far from divine
Is the end of every line
Some will shirk for fear the road less travelled is rough
Others suffer, searching for a deeper cut
Believing that the pain that they are feeling is love
For them the morning’s tough

I’ve got a funny feeling about this
Another night and we know that we’re taking a risk
I’ve got a funny feeling about this
“Step away from that ledge boy, give me a kiss”
She knew that I would fall for it

The chemicals, they rot your brain and they drive you wild
They’re everywhere I seem to turn
I want them all

Mess We're In
With your permission I will walk away now
I’ve seen too much to make me stay
I’m growing tired of the games you play girl
You stayed the same but the rules have changed

We were young and we were foolish
Made mistakes like anyone would
I’m your lap-dog, struck by cupid
Under your spell, I could not see it

You owe money over both sides of town
I see that trouble’s coming - it’s tracking you down
Used your beauty like a work of art
But you can’t see that it’s falling apart

You went too far now there’s no turning back
Your façade is crumbling starting to crack
How’d it get to be so serious?
Can’t you see... what a mess we’re in?

We were young and we were foolish
Now we’re older - no excuses
Tried to tell you - you won’t listen
Can I leave with, your permission?

You went too far now there’s no turning back
Your façade is crumbling starting to crack
How’d it get to be so serious?
Can’t you see... what a mess we’re in?

You always thought I would be there for you
But this is crazy baby that’s why we’re through
How’d it get to be so serious?
Can’t you see...?

Poison Apple
Old summer days seem to fade
Hanging outside in the rain
With an old photograph of my friend
Who passed away long ago
And now it’s far too late
To bring him back again
The way I always dreamt
Well I’m sorry baby, I’m not cut out for this

Dip the apple in the brew
Let the sleeping death seep right through
My mind’s not right now
Makes me hunger for a bite
All of the secrets they will be kept
I’ve got no loose lips I just refused to repent
In this old fashioned world
We don’t care who gets hurt

How could I be so naive
I gave myself away
So now they’ll punish me
As my body starts to change
I know I’ll never run again
The cracks they’ll start to show
My mind it starts to slow
Well I’m sorry baby, I’m not cut out for this

Dip the apple in the brew
Let the sleeping death seep right through
My mind’s not right now
Makes me hunger for a bite
All of the secrets they will be kept
I’ve got no loose lips I just refused to repent
In this old fashioned world
We don’t care who gets hurt

Well I'm sorry baby, I’m not cut out for this
I’ve been trying hard but lately
It all seems so poisonous

Dip the apple in the brew
Let the sleeping death seep right through
My mind’s not right now
Makes me hunger for a bite
All of the secrets they will be kept
I’ve got no loose lips I just refused to repent
In this old fashioned world
We don’t care who gets hurt

Stowaways
There'll be a light outside
My window one day
And if they've come to take me away
I'll ask them to find some space
So the two of us can stow aboard
And leave for a better place

It's getting hard to bear
You're reading it every day
Everybody's talking about the end of the world
Just like it's yesterday's news
And there's nothing we can do about it at all
So we run away

And we will stow away upon the first ship out of here
We'll float into outer space, yeah we'll disappear
And the world seems very small now from the window
Of this vessel and we don't know where they're taking us

You're having second thoughts
I can read it in your eyes
Don't be fooled by the government
When they buy another landslide victory
All they want to do is bleed the planet dry
And the rich ones will survive
Surprise, surprise

And we will stow away upon the first ship out of here
We'll float into outer space, yeah we'll disappear
And the world seems very small now from the window
Of this vessel and we don't know where they're taking us at all

And we will stow away upon the first ship out of here
We'll float into outer space, yeah we'll disappear
And the world seems very small now from the window
Of this vessel and we don't know where they're taking us at all

Fragile Creatures
Open your eyes
And you will see it all for the first time
We all come out into a blinding light
It's no surprise we cry

It really matters what I say to her this time
But no strong words will come to mind
Don't wanna rock your boat no Momma
So we don't and we say

Bye-bye
But we don't know why
Given up trying to work out what is on your mind
Oh no-no-no we just can't decide

We don't emerge full formed
Our heads are too large
From the very start
We're fragile creatures

Everybody's trying to put ideas in your head
Well I'm just say here playing devil's advocate

Bye-bye
But we don't know why
Given up trying to work out what is on your mind
Oh no-no-no we just can't decide
Oh no, we just can't decide

We don't emerge full formed
Our heads are too large
From the very start
We're fragile creatures

TOP

Into The Night
There is a world outside your door and it's waiting
So why don't you just step outside
There is a heart inside your chest and it's beating
So what have you been waiting for
Why don't you open up that door

I would if I could
But this big old heart of mine has been sucked out dry
I thought I liked the taste but now I have lost my appetite
Please can we escape into the night?

So I'll go from bar to bar where I'll be drinking
So I don't have to think at all
and a solitary soul will always end up sinking

You'll drown with that frown
And this big old heart of mine has been sucked out dry
I thought I liked the taste but now I have lost my appetite
Please can we escape into the night?

You're not fighting for survival
The city's not that cruel
Look in the eyes of your rival and see that
You're not so different after all

I would if I could
I would if I could
But this big old heart of mine has been sucked out dry
I thought I liked the taste but now I have lost my appetite
Please can we escape into the night?

You Don't Get It
He lives alone beyond the suburbs in a fantasy home
He wakes at five they gave him money but they've stolen his life
He sits alone in his office on his company throne
He eyes the phone but he knows there's no one to call
He chairs the board but he still don't get it (still don't get it)

You still don't get it at all, one life and you've lived it all

He walks the walk but he hasn't an original thought
Aims for the top but sometimes it's just not in your blood
Unsatisfied by the endless routine of your life?
It's not success if you're living a life you'll regret
We're not impressed that you still don't get it (still don't get it)

You still don't get it at all, one life and you've lived it all
Still don't get it at all, who are you living for?

I gave my heart and soul for the love of rock'n'roll I thought that you should know
I gave my heart and soul for the love of rock'n'roll I thought that you should know
I gave my heart and soul for the love of rock'n'roll the love of rock'n'roll

Body In The Boot
I've been waiting for you here
Ever since you disappeared
Sitting in my room so dark
Watching dust settle upon every thing that I've got

Are you a body in some boot?
Is this a magic trick, is it just a ruse?
I sought but never found the truth
Within those lies you span a web for me and you
But it couldn't last

Well I must confess baby I was real surprised
When I saw you a live
Don't lie, you thought I was dead as well

There's no world for you and I
and now I know the reason why
I pricked a rose, got fingers full of thorns
And though it hurts like hell I always wanted more
Then it's over in a flash
Nothing through the looking glass

When I saw you at the airport I was real surprised
To see you alive
Don't lie, you thought I was dead as well
Don't lie, you wanted me dead as well
If you'd had the chance

Living in a fantasy, trapped in a dream
Don't apologise for it I've got nothing else
So I keep you alive
This lie, without it I'm dead inside
This lie, without it I'm dead inside
And now you know the truth

One Bit At A Time
Listen up my friend I don't even understand it
That picture in your head it's never quite as they say
Dried up memories they seem to taunt me every day
Is it a symptom or disease of the comeback trail?

I've become tradition: a man from yesterday
Walking down the street with my once familiar face
This is how it goes, this is how it goes
One bit at a time, one bit at a time
One bit at a time, one bit at a time

You wear the same clothes as you did when you were much younger
Pulling on your boots each day cos you still got the hunger
Didn't look the other way, don't say I didn’t see you suffer
Just a memory and it starts to fade again

I've become tradition: a man from yesterday
Walking down the street with my once familiar face
This is how it goes, this is how it goes
One bit at a time, one bit at a time
One bit at a time, one bit at a time

They say you didn't suffer long
Must say that doesn’t comfort none
You're gone and that's just how it goes

I've become tradition: a man from yesterday
Walking down the street with my once familiar face
This is how it goes, this is how it goes
One bit at a time, one bit at a time
One bit at a time, one bit at a time

Grace
Grace, where you going now?
If you walk out that door I'll just follow you out
Because we've got a lot to talk about
We just might as well get to it now
But Grace says, “What's going on?”
“Who are these people here? They don't belong”
Yes we've known for a while that some thing's wrong
When you don't recognise your child
But you know the words to the songs you used to know

Soft and slow, that's how we go
We live each moment how that moment must go
We can't work it out if there's nothing to know
We can't help you out if there's nowhere to go
When I lose my mind I hope it don't go... so... slow

Grace, she don't know me now
When she tries to talk the words don't come out
Every once in a while she'll recognise me
Feels like in those moments she's alive

TOP

Almost Home
I've been hoping I have that it all won't end soon
I've been watching the skies desperately
There's a chance we might make it
Better prepare for the worst
Times they are changing
Together we'll prove our worth

Keep a hold of me, please don't let me go
No more worrying almost home

All the steps you must take to keep away from harm
All of the smiles that you fake
They make me love you a little more
I've been hoping soon they will leave you alone
I've been dreaming and tomorrow never comes

Keep a hold of me, please don't let me go
No more worrying almost home

Keep a hold of me please don't let me go
No more worrying almost home (keep a hold of me, keep a hold of me)
Please don't let me go, almost home

Number 7 (When Love Is Not Enough)
Baby you and I can't seem to get it right
Tried so hard to be everything you need
Things ain't working out well you seem to have your doubts
This is not the life for me, too much uncertainty
When love is not enough, time's have been tough
But you can't get away... can't get away
I've been thinking you know something's been missing
You seem so far away getting further every day
Shadows from the past seem to cast us in the dark
And there's no light to see so what's it going to be?

When love is not enough, time's have been tough
Can't shake the feeling, that I should be leaving
When love is not enough, time's have been tough
But you can't get away... can't get away
When love is not enough, time's have been tough
Can't shake the feeling, that I should be leaving
When love is not enough, time's have been tough
But you can't get away... can't get away
