Track Name: Looking Inside My House
Been looking in my kitchen, among the pots and the pans.
Been lurking in the larder among the bags and cans.
Been snaking down the pipes and sitting by the stove.
Pull out this drawer, that drawer, pull out this drawer that drawer.

Looking inside my house. Been opening the windows up.
Looking inside my house. Been opening all the doors.

Down in my basement through the cupboard where the vacuum & brushes are stored under the stairs.
Been tapping on the taps, going down through the drain, in the shower and the bath, into the kitchen again.

Looking inside my house. Been opening the windows up.
Looking inside my house. Been opening all the doors.

Turn right at the wardrobe, turn left at the chair. Crawling up the walls, across the ceiling and the floor.
I went up to the attic in that triangular space where the rafters meet the gutters and the insulation is placed.

Looking inside my house. Been opening the windows up.
Looking inside my house. Been opening all the doors.

Now I'm closing the curtains, I'm turning off the light.
I put down my book and I'm gonna sleep tonight.

Looking inside my house. Been opening the windows up.
Looking inside my house. Been opening all the doors.
Track Name: Eyes in the Back of My Head
Eyes in the back of my, eyes in the back of my, eyes in the back of my head.

When it gets dark and the lights go on in the house, fireflies flitting all around.
Insects start singing, twitching and rubbing, them moths keep hitting the glass.
They thought I wasn’t quite human, they thought I should be kept in a cage but you know there’s nothing wrong with me.
When I’m looking, I’m looking both ways.

Eyes in the back of my head... I see what you said and I see what you want to say. I see what you've done and I see what you've got to come.

I might never get rich, I might just get washed out with the tide.
Most people they leave no big impression, what they did was like leaving a scratch mark in the sand.
I’m sitting by the river watching fish jump up in the heat, minding my own business like I do.
I can hear them in the distance, all squabbling and fighting. They really ain’t got a clue.

Eyes in the back of my, eyes in the back of my, eyes in the back of my head...
Track Name: Just Like It Never Was
Just like it never was.
The things I remember are not like they were.
As if it was never here at all.
It passes and still I don’t quite recall.
Just like it never was. Just like it never was...

It passes and still I don't quite recall.
Just like it never was...

Edinburgh castle lit up on a hill, then on to the evening train.
The light of the Sage reflects on the Tyne then the wink of the London eye.

Just like it never was...
You could find something good.
Track Name: Unwrap
What my mother did, what my father did, what my country did, education did, what my friends did, what religion did, what TV did, what you did.

Back to the bronze age, and the iron age. Mesopotamia & Sumeria. To the yellow river, to the Nile. We take a ride…

We get to go back, it's time to unwrap...

Back to the bronze age, and the iron age. Mesopotamia & Sumeria. To the yellow river, to the Nile. We take a ride…

We get to go back, its time to unwrap...

Protozoa. Metazoa... Mesopotamia & Sumeria. To the yellow river, to the Nile. We take a ride…

We get to go back, it's time to unwrap...

What my mother did, what my father did, what my country did, education did, what my friends did, what religion did, what tv did, What you did.

Now its not too late for me to separate, as I accumulate all of the past. All of history building up in me until it weighs me down, weighs me down.

We get to go back, its time to unwrap...
Track Name: Hidden Lives of Pain
Then I dug so low, never yes and always no, need to climb out of this hole.
Tell me shut my mouth, I’ve nothing good to say and nowhere I want to go.
I might lie down in the road, cars roll over me and you know I wouldn’t care.

Hidden lives of pain, the way it plays with my brain. This is all that I feel, this is all that I know...

They say you can’t be lost if you’ve no destination so I’ll just see where I go.
There were promises and hopes of what could come to me but they never seemed to show.
How can I complain standing next to you, when I know what you’ve been through.
Everything that was your life, that you depended on, all you loved was blown away.

Hidden lives of pain, the way it plays with my brain.
This is all that I feel, this is all that I know...
Track Name: Freaky Thing From The Moon
Have you seen it yet?
I can see you breathe, breathing out your heat.
No one in the streets, the bars have emptied out.
Everyone going home, dare not leave your house...

Oh my God, get indoors...

Are you really there, did I just invent?
Not just represent, not just some abstract.
Sneaking through the trees, forest in the night.
Tell me what you are, am I safe tonight?

I don’t know what you are, I don’t know your intent...
Everyone going home, dare not leave your house...

Oh my God, get indoors, don't leave the house, take care, you don't know what's out there...
It's a freaky thing from the moon.

Don’t know what you are, don’t know your intent...

Sneaking through the trees, forest in the night,
Tell me what you are, am I safe tonight?
Everyone going home, dare not leave the house...

Freaky thing from the moon, got no body shape...
I don’t know what you are, I don’t know your intent...

Oh my God, get indoors, don't leave the house, take care...
Track Name: Steeplejack
Steeplejack. Tower top. Big drop. No root, no root, no root.
Just hanging in the air, can’t you see me there.

Big big biggy biggy big big high high high...

Just hanging in the air, just hanging in the air. Tower top. Big drop. No root, no root. Just hanging in the air, can’t you see me there.

Big big biggy biggy big big high high high...

What I love to do. Oh I love the blue. What I love to do.

Big big biggy biggy big big high high high...

In my chair hanging there, my anchor in the brick. Watch the cradle rise to meet the steeplejack.
High high high...

Big big biggy biggy big big high high high...
Track Name: The Beluga Whale
I was feeling so low and ghosts had come to haunt me. They'd followed me there, they’re my long lived impressions.
On the coldest of days when the sun barely rises, you must travel all day through the white, blue and grey.

Welcome to The Beluga Whale, hotel in the Arctic.
How can I help? Do you need a hand? Your room is ready.

I was feeling so low and ghosts had come to haunt me. They followed me there, they’re my long lived impressions.

Welcome to The Beluga Whale, hotel in the Arctic.
The logo it glows far away in the snow.
Your room is ready.

On the coldest of days...

Welcome to The Beluga Whale, hotel in the Arctic.
The logo it glows far away in the snow.
Do you need a hand? How can I help?

On the coldest of days when the sun barely rises, you must travel all day through the white, blue and grey.
Track Name: Mozart & Mesmer
Circles go round.
The staircase goes down through a hole in the ground.
Under the city to the core of the sound.
Circles go round, circles go round.
No fear. No fear. No, no worries here...

Breathe deep. Breathe. Give it a rest, give it a rest.
Sound go round, drift into the sound...

We are going up a hill and you climb up to the top and you climb up onto the number one perfect cloud.
No fear. No fear. No, no worries here...
Sound go round, drift into the sound, sound go round.

You're feeling deep and you're feeling high. You’re feeling calm and you're safe and warm.
Breathe, breathe deep.
It all moves really, really slow.
No fear. No fear. No, no worries here...

Now your cloud's coming down to land on the ground. It's time to wake up...you're about to wake up.

Now that you're here, well, you've seen how it looks. It's time to wake up...
Track Name: Winter Light (You Wanted Love)
You wanted love but it don’t come free,
I’ve never seen it grow on trees.
You've got to catch it before it’s ripe and all the wasps and fruit flies bite.
Apples, damsons raining down, rolling onto the grassy ground.

You wanted love but it don’t come free.
Not even a guarantee.
There's no guarantee, there's no guarantee.
I've never seen it grown on trees.

You press a button the action stops.
It starts in capitals, ends in dots.
All the sentences you had lost, pouring from your mouth like a fountain spout.

There's no guarantee, there's no guarantee.

Rain and drizzle and water drops,
Roll down your nose into your socks.

You wanted love but it don’t come free,
I’ve never seen it grown on trees.
You wanted love but it don't come free,
Not even a guarantee.
You wanted love but it don’t come free,
I’ve never seen it grown on trees.

You press a button and the action stops. It starts in capitals, ends in dots. All the sentences you had lost pouring from your mouth like a fountain spout.

You wanted love but it don’t come free,
I’ve never seen it grow on trees.
You wanted love but it don’t come free.
You wanted love but it don’t come free.
I’ve never seen it grow on trees.
Not even a guarantee. There's no guarantee...
Track Name: What I Want To Believe
In my time I’ve thought all kinds, imagined I’m this or I’m that.
At one time I thought that I knew it all but the next day the bubble has popped.

What I want to believe, can I make it all be?
If I say you are there, will you then gain a life of your own?

doo doo da doo da doo...

In my time I’ve thought all kinds, imagined I’m this or I’m that.

What I want to believe, can I make it all be?
If I say you are there, will you then gain a life of your own?

doo doo da doo da doo...

I thought that it worked a particular way, then see it all is reversed.

What I want to believe, can I make it all be?
If I say you are there, will you then gain a life of your own?

doo doo da doo da doo...
