Track Name: Losing My Mind
My mind, speaks a thousand words
It shoots from the hip and it hurts
Keeps me awake like a curse
I toss and turn and hate my mind

My mind, wants to crucify me.
Kick back and watch me bleed.
I take a pill to get my relief.
It's the only way I know to unwind,
Oh I can't believe -

It feels like I'm Losing My Mind
Feels like I'm Losing My Mind
My mind, my psychiatrist said:
"It doesn't feel at home in your head
Better learn to get some rest
You're only gonna make yourself worse"

I sing 'cos it keeps things simple
A language of signs and symbols
I analyse each scar and wrinkle
Anything to keep myself blind
Otherwise I find -

It feels like I'm Losing My Mind
Feels like I'm Losing My Mind

My mind, filled with fantasy
I drown in my lust and my greed.
The world the way I want it to be
I don't believe I'm one of a kind
There must be someone like me -
It feels like I'm Losing My Mind
Feels like I'm Losing My Mind.
Track Name: Propaganda
I know this ground beneath me
Is slipping away
I hear the message you're preaching
I try to escape

Oh forgive me, if I'm not myself
Oh forgive me, if I don't want your help

From experts and preachers,
From textbooks and teachers.
It's all propaganda
From tabloids and talkshows,
From billboards to god knows
It's just propaganda.

There's no time to count the civilian
There's work to be done.
For until these billions are trillions
Then war will go on.

Oh forgive me, if I deviate.
Oh forgive me, if I try to escape

The close up, the soundbite
The replay, the gunfight
It's all propaganda.
The tax cuts and think tanks,
The loopholes, the world bank..
Oh take a look around ya
It's all propaganda

Oh forgive me if I deviate
Oh forgive me if I try to escape

Away from this propaganda of
Illusion, confusion, delusion, intrusion
It's all propaganda.
From New York to Beijing
If we lose then they win.
From Big Macs to weight loss
From junkies to Kate Moss
From catwalks to blue jeans
From sweatshops to Gucci.
Oh take a look around ya It's all Propaganda.
Track Name: The Nightshift
Your working day now complete
The world outside falls asleep, a cradle to the cold
This situation tonight, I'm here, you're there
It's not right, to have and not to hold

The Nighshift lay before me
The Nightshift make me stay away

Just know that I would love to be, with you
But I can't do right now you see
There's nowhere I would rather be, than with you

An invitation to spend
The evening out with my friends I regretfully decline
The chance to lay down beside
My baby for the night I had to let slip by

The Nighshift lay before me
The Nightshift make me stay away

Just know that I would love to be, with you
But I can't do right now you see
There's nowhere I would rather be, than with you

I look around, I can't come down
When there's so much to be done
So understand, it's who I am
The Nightshift is what I've become

Just know that I would love to be, with you
I can't do right now you see
There's nowhere I would rather be, than with you

When your down remember this
Close your eyes, make a wish cos it's my alibi
When your lost remember this
Close your eyes and picture this
Sleep tonight, sleep tonight.
Track Name: Pretty Girl
I was ready to leave
Until I saw you walk through
And now you're looking at me
Like I've been looking at you

Take a look around you
You stand out a mile
There'd be no-one here without you
And so I ask myself why?

You're such a pretty girl
That's such a pretty dress
So what's a pretty girl doing in a place like this?
Cold hearts and cocaine smiles
Are all that's here inside
So what's a pretty girl doing in a place like this?

The room could burn to the ground
For all that anyone cares
That's why it's hard to believe
Someone like you is standing there

Take a look around you
There's nothing to see
There'd be no-one here without you
Are you lonesome tonight?

You're such a pretty girl
That's such a pretty dress
So what's a pretty girl doing in a place like this?
Where lovers, friends and fans
Are measured out in grams.
What's a pretty girl doing in a place like this?

To me it almost seems absurd
Of all the rooms in all the world

Oh I wonder what brought you here
You're such a pretty girl
Did daddy buy that dress?
What's a pretty girl doing in a place like this?
Track Name: Stolen Love Song
I gotta tell you a secret,
Don't know where to begin.
Swore I wouldn't repeat it
But I just can't keep it in

See late last night this girl I know
She brought herself round to my home
Said "we've been friends and that's OK,
Gonna make that situation change"

Gotta tell you a secret
I don't know where to begin
Swore I wouldn't repeat it
But I just can't keep it in

So there we were just her and I
Making love and drinking wine.
And it was good almost divine
But I had this voice in the back of my mind
You see this girl I know her man
This man doesn't know his girl
And it breaks my heart to be the one to tell
This girl is your girl
Yes your girl wanna be my girl

I gotta tell you a secret
I can't keep it inside
See this girl of yours I can't get her of my mind
Knowing what you know now
Don't you think you're better off without her?
Your girl wanna be my girl
Yes, our girl wanna be my girl
I don't wanna fight but your girl wanna be my girl
So let go, your girl wanna be mine.
Track Name: Stone Cold
You sell yourself 'cause other people do
You've seen their smiles, now you want the same things too

Your secret's safe, you make sure it's locked inside
A secret place that no-one but you can find

Stone cold and silent, no word from above
Stone cold you're beautiful but so hard to love

In need of proof your world spins silently
The search for truth you said it's inside of me

Stone cold and silent, no word from above
Stone cold you're beautiful but so hard to love

Lay down your arms, show me your scars
I'm not here to criticise, I'm here if you want me
Turn on the lights, lift up the night
It's time to reconcile or stay this way forever

The house we built, you've made a cheap hotel
You've sold your soul and now you want mine as well
Be careful what gets out, you don't know who's about
Maybe we should whisper

Stone cold and silent, no word from above
Stone cold you're beautiful but so hard to love

There's so much here worth fighting for, we're all the same
There's no-one here worth hiding from, we're all the same
Track Name: One Day You'll Love The Things You Hate
You wash your hands just like a surgeon
You wash away what gets too near
One more kiss without affection
Don't run too far from here

One day you'll love it, one day you'll love it,
One day you'll love the things you hate
One day you love it, one day you'll love it
Until that day

A dreamer dreams, that's just his nature
The whole of life inside one day
Who needs love without adventure
So don't keep me far away

One day you'll love it, one day you'll love it
One day you'll love the things you hate
One day you love it, one day you'll love it
Until that day

You wait,
Until that day

The moment stops and lasts forever,
There's no more songs inside your head
You've crucified yourselves together
Now your blood will speak instead

One day you'll love it, one day you'll love it
One day you'll love the things you hate
One day you love it, one day you'll love it
Until that day

You wait,
Until that day.

I hear what you say
I don't believe it
I know what you say
I don't believe it, I don't believe it, I don't believe it.
Track Name: Godless
I try to tear myself away
I'm gripped by the news
I've heard it said in times of war
The first to die is the truth

I'm damned if I know the answer
I need one today
I'm damned if I know the answer
So Godless I wait.

Shame upon the wounded soul
Who finds his voice in the guns
Shame on you who use this fear
A plague upon your sons

I'm damned if I know the answer
I need one today
I'm damned if I know the answer
So Godless I wait

I try to tear myself away
I'm gripped by the news.
The lines are drawn, the wars go on
Christian, Muslim and Jew

I'm damned if I know the answer
We need one today
I'm damned if I know the answer
So Godless we wait

I'm damned if I, damned if I, damned if I know
I'm damned if I, damned if I, damned if I know
Track Name: Settle Down
I think I'll settle down
I'm getting tired of all this running round.
My body says it time
It's time I find myself a quiet life.

But I step outside like a newborn child, & I wanna play.
Oh I've tried to be good and I wish that I could.
But sometimes it don't work that way.

All I keep thinking about is "what I'll be missing?"
I turn around when I hear a new sound, I can't settle down.

It's time to take account
Assess my assets, maybe go without
Tighten up the strings
Look for pleasure in the simple things

So I close my eyes but it gets inside, no matter what I do
Oh your touch feels right but please don't tell my wife
Lets keep this just between me & you

All I keep thinking about is "what I'll be missing?"
I turn around when I hear a new sound, I can't settle down.

I've pissed my time against a wall & look at me now
What have I got, nothing at all
Just memories and please don't those from me

All I keep thinking about is "what I'll be missing"
I turn around when I hear a new sound, I can't settle down.
Track Name: Let The Good Times Come My Way
My mind dreams of a distant land
My new reality of sun, sex and sand.
All the sweet sensations & high expectations
On my knees I pray
Let the good times come my way

This cold breeze brings me thoughts of escape
To palm trees and hot summer days
From the Good Vibrations to the Seven Nations
Let the music play
Let the good times come my way

Blue skies, I'm dreaming that I'm sleeping under
Blue skies, my night becomes my day
Blue skies, I know that someday I will be under
Blue skies, let the good times come my way

It's all I'm thinking of
It's all I want to see
It's all I'm hoping for
Let the good times come for me
Track Name: The Madness Of Crowds
The shopkeeper closed up
A town turned it's nose up
He never cried when his mother died, they say

Began with a rumour
And spread like a tumour
His choice of song, it gave the game away

It's only rock ˜n' roll, it's never gonna change the world
And I'm tired of this town
Another hero dies, the cheers are drowning out the cries
I look around at the madness of crowds

A shopkeeper moved on,
The high street improved on
But fingers point, and heads begin to nod
A town grows suspicious, the gossip malicious,
For no-one here's above the law of God.

It's only kiss ˜n' tell,
I hear the Chinese whisper well,
But I'm tired of this town,
Another hero dies, the cheers are drowning out the cries,
I look around at the madness...

I believe you'd like for me to be the same as you
'Cause don't you know that life would be so easy
But you see I don't believe the things they say to me
To me it's just madness gone mad

The story just plays on, McCarthy to Salem,
You're Communist or just a witch by day.
Now let's keep a vigil and watch each individual,
For signs that they may deviate or stray

It's only rock 'n' roll, it's never gonna change the world
And I'm tired of this town.
Another hero dies, the cheers are drowning out the cries,
I look around at the madness of crowds.
