Track list

1. So what about me, Pt. 1


Lyrics

So what about me?
So what about me?

2. Falling


Lyrics

There's a circle of fire
On the mountainside
and deep within the flames
you'll surely try to hide

As you search for your dreams
but no dreams are to be found
You've climbed far too high
to climb back down again

Chorus

Who will stop you falling now
when I'm not around
Who will stop you falling now
and hitting the ground
Who will sopt you falling now

....it won't be me, oh well it won't be me
....no, no it won't be me!

Fill your chalice with fire
come let it overflow
Drink the wine of wisdom
and your knowledge will surely grow?
As you search for yourself
There's a silent sound
as you fall from grace
and race back to the ground
and fall back to the ground!

Chorus
Damn, damn, damn, damn

There's a circle of fire
on the mountainside
and deep within those flames
you'll surely try to hide, you'll surely try to hide.

3. A Kind of Love Song (Vampire Version)


Lyrics

Verse:
I don't want to see another day with you, ever again
I don't ever want to see another dawn rise ever again together, yeah.

Chorus:
I declare my love like blood lust
I declare my love like blood life lust

M8/1:
The sunshine burns our skin.

Verse:
I don't ever want to sleep another night without you again
Never sleep and never sleep, at night and be with you, only you
I want to see the deep dusk arising and coming alive, yes coming alive!

Chorus:
I declare my love like blood lust
I declare my love life lust
I declare ...my love, like blood, like a lust for life!

M8/2:
The sunshine burns the skin...
And the sunshine still burns our skin

Verse:
I don't really want to see another day, like this today
I don't ever want to see another sunrise, rise like today!
I want to see the deep dusk arising, and coming alive, yes coming alive!!

Chorus: as above

4. Run out of Bad Luck

The story in the link below served as the inspiration for what occurred and is a possible interpretation of this major historical event:
The Burning of the Library of Alexandria


Lyrics

A very long, long time ago
You opened up your gates of your hell
and let loose your dogs of war upon us

To change the world
and make us follow you
just you, your kind
you took all our words
our books, of hidden locked up wisdom

Chorus

Surely, yes, your great black star
shining bright will fall
As our sun will rise again
On a new beautiful, glorious new day
Today!
I believe
Come what may
I believe...
We will take you down
Back down to the ground
We will come to take you down
With the crashing sound of drums,
we've come to take you down
We will take you down...
Once and forever!
-----
So now that the fighting followed
Now all we have is little else..
But nothing to remember

Where was the key?
The famous words
and the very things that changed
All things in time

Books, tablets, words
The ancient place
Where are those words?
All the words in the whole wide world!

Chorus

Once and Forever!!

5. Beach Song, Pt. 1

Photograph by Andrea Wade for song 'Beach Song, Pt. 1' from album titled 	Pumpkin Soup on which there is shown a sandy beach with wooden wave breakers

Lyrics

You'll find me on the beach
You'll find me looking west
With my lovers in the east
You'll find me on the beach
With my ashes on the sand, with the ashes on the sand!

6. Southern Smile


Lyrics

Ripping a hole through the Mississippi moon
Driving to the river in the middle of June
Say Mother, I'm going crazy if you think this is fine, yeah
She said, come on in and taste a bit of gypsy wine
A girl like you should know better she said
Or do you wear cotton inside your head?
You know you think he's lazy do you think that's all, yeah
He gives you two little children and he thinks you should call him god

I see the lies behind your southern smile, southern smile
I see the lies behind your southern smile, southern smile

Contrary to opinion in this ever changing world
We still have to take everything that's hurled
A Mother holding baby every rainy day, yeah
Oh, he promises you everything
But takes everything away

Ripping a whole through the Mississippi moon
Driving to the river in the middle of June
Say Mother, I'm going crazy if you think this is fine, yeah
She said come on in and taste a bit of gypsy wine

Chorus

So what about me?
God God God God

7. No Matter


Lyrics

Once I just found the one
That I was waiting for
Worth every moment
All that I give and more
Locked every broken soul
Won't let our love begin
Open every door but she won't
Let my poor heart in

Chorus:

No Matter where you go
You're always on my mind
No matter where you are
I never leave you behind
You expecting me with everything
That I try and do
It don't matter where you go
Cos I'll never give up on you

Now I've only one way out
And I feel so sure
You could understand my love
and I give much more
Unlock this broken soul
And let our love begin
Open up the door won't you
Let my poor hear in

Chorus

Unlock this broken sou
Let our love, let our love, let our love begin

Chorus

8. Living in Fear


Lyrics

It's Burning in my head
And I don't know how to cool down
Feel like I'm melting away
As the fear gets bigger and I start to drown

You see I, I'm sinking down
Because it's so hard to laugh into your face
I try to put out this fire
And push you away from today!

Chorus:
I guess that we're living in fear
I guess that we're living in fear

-----

It seems to come from deep inside
and hit me like an avalanche
It's a fear I must learn to ride
and keep locked in the closed dorrs of my mind

So if you take me in the end
Well today will be my main concern
It's not so easy for you my friend
and the price you will pay will be many more years
without me

Chorus

We'll all have to see your face one day!

9. Beach Song, Pt. 2

10. Brother of Mine


Lyrics

Aftermath of the past
You arrive from the future
You laugh at our cars on four wheels
But yes as we push boats through the water

You take me away
and leave me stranded
and strange at times
With a message to tell
Of what to do and what not ever to do

Chorus:

Come take me away
You come to take me away
Take me to your leader
Who's so far away

You saved me from the river
as you paint walk through my head
Yes you saved me from the river
as you paint and walk through my head

-----

Visits from another place
A message a word just an idea
A helping head and a possessed kind of word
Right in my ear
And places of vision with hope
Decision and care

Chorus:

I give this song to you
As a 'Valorous Deed' indeed!

11. The Keeping


Lyrics

The Keeping of what we share
and what is still to share
Knowing that we care
I always will be there

Holding on to what we give
It's within us to believe
In the things we know
About all that makes us grow

Chorus:

Believe in the Keeping
Yes, believe in the Keeping
Believe in the Keeping
of the love and things we shared

-----

The distance apart
A life sometimes apart
Will never break us free
From what we need to be

The Keeping of the special place
That can never be understood
And understanding this
Will be the grace and fullness of our embrace

Chorus

The Keeping of what we create
Will help us to be
The Keeping of what we create!

Lyrics

You'll find me on the beach
You'll find me looking west

With the ashes on the sand!

I see the lies behind your smile

So what about me?
