Track Name: She Walks Away
A blank face and eyes
Lazy indifference
You’d be surprised
At her level of malcontent
Averting her gaze
Is her only self-defence
I wonder why
It all seems so commonsense

She bites her lip
Stares into space
Looks down
Then turns away
I don’t know why

Some other day
It might have been different
Some other time
She might have been quite content
To have me there
By her side
To share
To watch her smile
But I don’t care
I don’t care

I don’t know
What I could change
For her
It’s all the same
She walks away
Track Name: Eastern Variations
Instrumental
Track Name: Distortion Is Beautiful
It’s not your house
It’s just your heart
Come let me see
Let me see
Let me see

You know one day
You will be free
There’s no helping them
Do as you please
‘Cause everyone
Everyone
Must be free

He loves me
Keep a light head
Keep a light head
Track Name: Keep Your Feet On The Ground
If you want to keep the bloat away
Keep your feet on the ground
Don’t let your legs sway

Torn pages from magazines
Neurotic women
making public scenes

You know you ain’t got a lot
You’d better stock up now
And hope it lasts

A world of temptations
A party wardrobe
A coterie of friends is a heavy load

Ask yourself what Jesus would do
If he was here right now
Looking at you

It don’t matter what you want
That blonde on your couch
She ain’t gonna last

Broken teeth and a bad attitude
It ain’t what you are
It’s the path you choose

My head’s bursting
My tongue explodes
As they crank up the power on my electrodes

It don’t matter what they want
You’d better call it green
And flog it fast

Calves going from birth to burger
Gulp it down
Go a little bit further

Clean lines in digital heaven
Multi-coloured dazzle
Just a flash in the pan

You know it ain’t what I want
You can keep the kid
I’ll take the car!

Burning Zeros don’t fix the past
Got a Buddha on my back
And my arse up a mast

A wooden gator with a great gait
Juggling fish, a dog
And a birthday cake

You know it ain’t what you got
You’d better pawn the lot
And forget the past

Anything’d be better than this
But if it can’t be changed
Then I couldn’t care less

It ain’t enough I lost that feeling
Now it’s single-digit inflation
My head is reeling

You know it ain’t what I want
You’d better cut me loose

What’s a guy to do?
What’s a guy to do?
What’s a guy to do?
What’s a guy to do?
What’s a guy to do?
Track Name: Eternally
You know I’ll always be there
Be there night and day
I’ll always be behind you
Watching what you do and say
Everything I do is for you
Don’t ever think I’ll go away

You know I’m not lying
When I say
This love of mine for you is true
You know there’s no denying it
My words to you
This love of mine for you is true

There’s no tomorrow
When I gaze into your eyes
My loneliness, my sorrow
Fade into the sky
There won’t ever be another
You’re never gonna leave my side

You know I’m not lying
When I say
This love of mine for you is true
You know there’s no denying it
My words to you
This love of mine for you is true

They’re coming for me
I hear the men at the door
With you here right beside me
Nothing’s ever felt so sure
Helicopters and sirens
It don’t matter any more
Track Name: Segue
¡Que hermosa es Usted!
Sí, eres mi corazón
Te amo con ternura
Y viene un ventarrón

¡Sí, le hace la barba!
Te quiero con frenesí
¿Por que eres tan esquiva?
¡Oh lárguese de aquí!
¡Lárguese de aquí!
¡Anda!

Nunca te he engañado
Sí, el chico es guanajo
Mucho ruido y pocas nueces
Le falta un tornillo
Habla hasta por los codos
Le falta un tornillo
Sí, un tornillo
Le falta un tornillo
Track Name: Morning Curtain
When the light comes through the curtain
She turns and sees that look in his eye
What’s left when faith is gone
And love just feels like a lie?

But now those days have gone
Resentment’s all she feels deep inside

She lays back and stares at the wall
And thinks about how her life just floats by
Light shines on the cracks in the wall
The torn curtain shows a glimpse of the sky
Track Name: The Open Road
Instrumental
Track Name: Satori At The Picture Show
Satori hit me at the picture show
Reading credits from the back row
You spend your life looking for someone
When all you want is fun

There are days I forget my name
Can’t show my feelings or I’ll go insane
I get a feeling things move too slow
I just wanna go

Know what I mean?
You know what I mean
Know what I mean?
You know what I mean

So she ain’t exactly Sheryl Crow
Can’t afford to be fussy though
To give her up would be a crying shame
Thing’s wouldn’t be the same

Life’s as classy as a rugby scrum
And the people are just as dumb
She’s done more drugs than I want to know
But in the dark it don’t show

Know what I mean?
You know what I mean
Know what I mean?
You know what I mean

Throw your street cred down the drain
It ain’t dizzy or insane
I’ll probably end up a drunken bum
But it won’t matter to anyone

Know what I mean?
You know what I mean
Know what I mean?
You know what I mean

Know what I mean?
You know what I mean
Know what I mean?
You know what I mean
Track Name: Say What You Want
You can say just what you want
But it don’t matter to me
Preaching double standards
You’re just too blind to see

You can’t see the light of day
But you carry on as if you do anyway
Telling me what to think and say
As if you think I’m gonna play

You think with a suit and smile
You’ll do just fine
Walk the walk and make the talk
And signify
You step on people all down the line
Think you’ll reach the promised land with your lying?
It ain’t gonna help you
When you’re dying


You can say just what you want
But it don’t matter to me
Preaching double standards
You’re just too blind to see

So you went to the right school
Read all the right books
Take as much care with your thoughts
As with your looks

Put me under the microscope
Try to treat me like a joke
Poke around for anomalies
Because I don’t
fit
Have to watch what I say
Or you’ll get frantic
For you it’s third millennium blandness
Android head expansion
Mass-consumer abandon
Forty-five channels is what you want
When forty just won’t do

You can say just what you want
But it don’t matter to me
Preaching double standards
You’re just too blind to see
Just too blind to see

You think we’re all here to be bought and sold
Treated like dirt when we grow old
Brushed aside and trampled on
And taxed till we die

You can say just what you want
But it don’t matter to me
Preaching double standards
You’re just too blind to see

You can say just what you want
It don’t matter to me
Preaching double standards
You’re too blind to see
Too blind to see
Too blind to see
Too blind to see
Track Name: The Vinyl Hunter
He roams all over town
Tracking slabs of vinyl down
When he’s hunting don’t cross his path
You don’t want to deal with the aftermath

He’s a vinyl hunter
Always out to make a find
He’s a vinyl hunter
Normal folk think he’s out of his mind

He was married a year ago
Till she said she liked Barry Manilow

He didn’t really need her
Didn’t cry when she was gone
Didn’t even miss her
Now he’s got more time with his stereo

It’s not enough that he’s already got
Twenty thousand or more
It’s a dirty addiction
That’s eating him to the core
He’s gotta have more!
He’s gotta have more!
He’s gotta have more!
And more and more!
And more and more!

When you see him get out of his way
You really don’t want to make his day
He roams all over town
Tracking slabs of vinyl down
Track Name: Medved
V gozdu je vse mirno. Sonce blesti, ptici pojejo in reka teče tiho. Pri reki gleda rjav medved ribico. Medved je lačen ampak nima možnosti pojesti ribice. Zakaj? Zato ker je bil on sam plen lovca s puško.

Ko se je medved zbudil, je videl okoli sebe majhno kletko. V kletki je bilo možno narediti pet korakov naprej in pet korakov nazaj. Medved je bil ujetnik v živalskem vrtu.

Po mnogo letih so uradniki v živalskem vrtu sklenili, da izpustijo medveda. Medved je bil zopet v gozdu, kjer je vse mirno. Sonce je blestelo, ptici so peli in reka je tekla.

In kaj se potem naredil medved?

On je stopil pet korakov naprej in pet korakov nazaj.
