You ain’t got no space in your mind For all this entertainment You just raise your face to the skies In wonder and amazement But you know everything isn’t right And you carry on just taking Have you misplaced those feelings inside Now all you want to do is break it down And you try so hard But you’re breaking fast And the shaking starts Reach through the haze Restart an open fire Your heart is open wide And the flame inside it burns on embers But these days it seems You’re only marking time You’re half-way passed the line And you and I will pay no matter Now you ain’t got no space in your life For all these new arrangements And you can take the lows with the highs Without rolling on the pavement But you push everything to one side And you carry on creating While you've still got that glint in your eye Now all you want to do is break it down And you try so hard But you’re breaking fast And the shaking starts Reach through the haze Restart an open fire Your heart is open wide And the flame inside it burns on embers But these days it seems You’re only marking time You’re half-way passed the line And you and I will pay no matter Reach through the haze Restart an open fire Your heart is open wide And the flame inside it burns on embers But these days it seems You’re only marking time You’re half-way passed the line And you and I will pay no matter And you try so hard But you’re breaking fast And the shaking starts

Boudicca 05:44
Boudicca my darling You’ve come back just in time to save the world The men are old and senile And not fit to run their fingers through your curls If only they’d been smarter And kept their grubby little hands All to them selves If only they’d been kinder The torch you carried for them Would have shined much brighter But I’m happy with things now Everything’s great again We’re reaching for the clouds While they’re all there just still scrabbling around I’m happy with things now everything’s great again we’re reaching for the clouds While they’re all there just still scrabbling around And tossing up for crowns Boudicca my Boudicca I know beneath the rage your heart is true Boudicca my Boudicca They never should have laid their tiny hands upon you And it’s time to pay for the crimes of yesterday and all tomorrows Cause they’ve been making hay on the bones of your despair and all your sorrows. Oh well. But I’m happy with things now Oh everything’s great again We’re reaching for the clouds While they’re all there just still scrabbling around And tossing up for crowns Oh they could have been so much better than that Just like the olden days When they called a spade a spade Or something so much worse Oh and now it’s time to get them back Oh it’s time for them to pay for the crimes that they have done. Of if only they’d been kinder than that Kept their hands all to themselves And left you well alone But they just didn’t want to give it back They just didn’t want to share They keep scrabbling around But Boudicca your coming back To take back what is yours And we’ll be reaching for the clouds Oh Boudicca they had it all But pride it comes before a fall. You’re still just tossing up for crowns

It's OK 04:39
I never got to shake his hand Or ask if he wants to come and see my band That man inspired me almost as much as my father When we were kids we used to sing along The world was sold but the night was young Now all those dreams they seem so much farther away Look at me I'm scared of my own shadow 5am and the street lights are down Look at me Am I vain am I shallow We all just need a little attention some time (don’t we) Look at me I'm in pain I'm a sad-o Working hard for this pension of mine Look at me Am I lame am I fallow I miss you so much but I don't know why But these days - it's OK - for boys to cry The battle's lost but your war is won Striding high with your 12-string slung The brightest star that burns like fire as it drives us along You rode the waves for so very long A different face and a different song As I relive them they all seem so much clearer today Look at me I'm scared of my own shadow 5am and the street lights are down Look at me Am I vain am I shallow We all just need a little attention some time (don’t we) Look at me I'm in pain I'm a sad-o Working hard for this pension of mine Look at me Am I lame am I fallow I miss you so much but I don't know why But these days - it's OK - for boys to cry With your hands on the trigger of your 12-string gun The battle lost but your soul lives on As they’re lining their pockets with your fateful song There’s one more star in the sky but we will never know Why you left us so soon Why you left us in awe Why the words rattle deep in your savaged jaw It’s so endless and senseless and it cuts so much deeper Why do we crawl on our hands and knees and lick our wounds eager To please you and tease you and suck up your pain Like a man on a mission on an empty train It’s ok to stare blindly while we look to the sky Because these days - it’s ok - for boys - to cry

Angerland 05:27
Britannia my Britannia All my life you’ve been a home to me But you’re getting oh so much angrier I feel anger building up in me And your people your angry people They go marching to the same old beat They say they want their country back They wanna live in some kind of English dream Gotta rescue all those perishing souls Their minds are being controlled The dirty little internet trolls Just won’t go back in their holes Britannia oh poor Britannia You’re so broken and all alone While you’re people, you’re angry people Spread their bitterness on their mobile phones They thought they’d get their country back They thought they’d take back, take back control They won’t listen to rhyme or reason You know they will not, just will not be told Gonna rescue all the perishing souls Their minds are being controlled The dirty little internet trolls Just won’t go back in their holes They thought they’d build a new Jerusalem in this great unpleasant land But Jerusalem has turned to Jericho as the walls they come a tumbling down They thought they’d got their country back, they thought they’d taken back control We’ve got the same old puppet masters and the same old lies are being told ‘Cause this ain’t my land This ain’t your land This is Angerland For the whole wide world to see ‘Cause this ain’t my land This ain’t your land This is Angerland And that’s how it’s gonna be We gotta rescue all those perishing souls Their minds are being controlled The dirty little internet trolls Just won’t go back in their holes

Oh So Sad 04:44
There’s no more cigarettes No beer soaked floors in pubs Nowhere to air your gripes Or hang with mates in clubs No feckless Friday nights No Saturday regrets we’re All just staying home And running up more debts it’s It’s all so sad No streetlights light the way No milk-float morning hum just Early morning tea And early evening humdrum There’s no more bitter end To keep us anchored rightly so We’re all unravelling But wrapped up far too tightly oh It’s all so sad There’s no more cigarettes No beer soaked floors in pubs Nowhere to air your gripes Or hang with mates in clubs No feckless Friday nights No Saturday regrets we’re All just staying home And running up more debts

Daughter 04:04
People change I should know My first born Has set the tone I’ve come in from the wild I'm out of deep water I’m settled and proud That you are my daughter In subtle ways As you’ve grown You have changed To what you’re now To woman from child To mother from daughter Your place in the crowd In a room full of laughter  So feel safe Your heart is tied to mine My eyes and arms will open wide And these things I will show you Like peace is a state of mind And shelter’s a shoulder My pride and hopes‘ll override Like a breeze skips ‘cross the water For you are my daughter You keep me sane When battle worn If left to face The world alone I’ve come in from the wild I'm out of deep water I’m settled and proud That you are my daughter So feel safe Your heart is tied to mine My eyes and arms will open wide And these things I will show you Like peace is a state of mind And shelter’s a shoulder My pride and hopes‘ll override Like a breeze skips ‘cross the water So feel safe Your heart is tied to mine My eyes and arms will open wide And these things I will show you Like peace is a state of mind And shelter’s a shoulder My pride and hopes‘ll override Like a breeze skips ‘cross the water For you are my daughter Just want to keep you safe - safe from harm

Whale 05:09
He's the greatest mammal That the world has ever seen The most massive animal That there's ever been Should be in the deep deep ocean The deep deep ocean The deep deep ocean Should be in the deep blue sea Should be in the deep blue sea But he's swimming up the channel Like a Russian submarine He's lurking in the shallows What can it mean Should be in the deep deep ocean The deep deep ocean The deep deep ocean But you've eaten all the fishes You've bleached the coral reefs And you've heated up the ocean And you've poised the whole sea Should be in the deep deep ocean The deep deep ocean The deep deep ocean Should be in the deep deep ocean The deep deep ocean The deep deep ocean Should be in the deep blue sea Should be in the deep blue sea But he's swimming in the plastic beads It's such a calamity It's a one way mission Like a kamikaze Ruined the whole ocean Now he's dying on the beach Should be in the deep deep ocean The deep deep ocean The deep deep ocean But you've eaten all the fishes You've bleached the coral reefs You've heated up the ocean You've poised the whole sea You really should be in the deep deep ocean The deep deep ocean The deep deep ocean You really should be in the deep deep ocean The deep deep ocean The deep deep ocean You really should be in the deep deep ocean The deep deep ocean The deep deep ocean You really should be in the deep deep deep ocean The deep deep ocean The deep deep ocean You should be in the deep blue sea You should be in the deep blue sea You should be in the deep blue sea

I understand you’re waiting still But that won’t bring them back I get the way you feel But times are changing so They will always be forever in your mind Ever spins the wheel You hold everything, hold everything That’s precious still You want everything, want everything You always will Endlessly Effortlessly Ever spins the wheel Lay awake and feel the fear So restless and hollow I get your pain is real And time is moving so slow They will always be forever in their time Ever spins the wheel You hold everything, hold everything That’s precious still You want everything, want everything You always will Endlessly Effortlessly Ever spins the wheel When all hope is lost And bones have turned to dust The ones you loved the most Just pictures on your phone There’s no one left at home You’ve still got time to go And time is overgrown And still Ever spins the wheel You hold everything, hold everything That’s precious still You want everything, want everything You always will You hold everything, hold everything That’s precious still You want everything, want everything You always will Endlessly Effortlessly Ever spins the wheel

Heading south oh just the three of us Melancholy mood but the band plays on Through the garden of old England In winters garb you know a New Years dawning Ever south down to the sea Where the sun don’t shine and their ain’t no cool breeze Thought I’d see your friendly faces there But you weren’t there The pews were bare Just mum and dad in the cold sea air He used to know the name of trees. Play the songs the way he pleased That’s why we loved him unlike all those other mercenaries Incandescent melodies he was part of the family That’s why he loved us more than all the other bands in which he’d been All the bands Hatching all their plans Bands oh bands in tribal little gangs Trying to play their songs With boxing gloves upon their hands And the master stands alone You in the shadows playing like a metronome And scratch old scratch playing with a match got a fire on his head he’s got petrol in a can is he doing it for real is it all part of the act He used to know the name of trees He’d play the songs the way he pleased That’s why we loved him more than all those other mercenaries Incandescent melodies Was part of the family That’s why we loved him Now the songs have been all sung The new days been and now it’s gone Into history How much a mortal man’s life Is over in the blinking of an eye What poetry Till the creature came upon your door Took your love and came back for more Showed no mercy But the Guru said the spirit lives And I saw your face and I knew it did Such certainty Used to know the name of trees Played the songs the way he pleased Incandescent melodies That’s why we loved him more than all those other mercenaries (break) That’s why we loved him

Gone 03:22
Gone gone No one to belong to Nothing to cling on to Nothing but gone gone Gone gone No one to be sung to Nothing for the young who Have nothing but gone When did we lose our way When did we turn the page Our generation has failed Unless we can be strong soon So lock me in a cage And decry all the rage We can’t expect to be saved So we might as well be gone too Gone gone No one to belong to Nothing to cling on to Nothing but gone gone Gone gone No one to be sung to Nothing for the young who Have nothing but gone Micro plastics in space Politics in disgrace Leaders lie to save face But they won’t save what’s dying Ask me why I’m ashamed When a child knows the way We can beat this they say But we must be strong too Gone gone No one to belong to Nothing to cling on to Nothing but gone gone Gone gone No one to be sung to Nothing for the young who Have nothing but gone
