Track Name: The Monk Jumps Over The Wall
I can't remember when I saw you last
The days and months move so fast
Trying to walk straight down a crooked road
Trying to turn plastic into gold
It's been a long time since I've seen you, man
I'm sorry if I've been so hard
I thought somehow you didn't care
It's good to see you smile again
It's been a long time since I've seen you, man
Track Name: Assembly Of The Unrepresented
Lonesome word, calls out to me
Saying 'come home soon, there's no need to cry
Anymore, it is done, all your troubles are gone
Be at peace'.
And we must heed, the chant of the streets
From the roofs of the world
We howl down this plea
We reserve the right, to love our lives
To learn and work
To fight with our minds
Track Name: Tell Her You Want Her
You could be lonely and stay in your room
Or you could get off it and make her your own
You could give in, let pride take your chance away
Or keep your head quiet and let your heart have it's say
Let love have it's day
And you must use language that makes your love sigh
Makes her wonder why
But can you be cool when she looks in your eye?
Tell her you want her
Track Name: Where Is My head?
Where is my head?
Why do I think like I think?
Where is my head?
Why do I what I do
To me?
What are these thoughts?
Do people think like I do?
What is my cause?
What do I rally around?
Down from the North
Betrayed by Governments for centuries now
Who take our music and football
Who pat us on the head and compliment us on our humour
Where are the sounds?
Mogwai and Dj Scud both both do it for me
Where are my friends?
Sice and Tim and Bobby Boo..
Track Name: Ein Hoff Le
Hold me, heal me with your mouth
It's the one thing worth me getting up for
Here with you is my favourite place
Tell me things are not so bad
That outside we still stand together
Undivided, we will never fall
Show me the magic of your secrets
Warm me with your sweet embrace
Burn me with your love
Track Name: Hermit Versus The World
As I watch her getting dressed
You know, I can't believe
It's another day and I have survived
She can't take me anywhere
You know, I can't behave
It's another way of being alive
And I've left the phone of the hook
It's plain to see
This is not the way it's meant to be
For you and me
I've got that pain again
Where it hurts to smile
Even though I've got my Hildy beside
And she's looking for the why, the cause that makes me sad
"It's too beautiful to stay inside"
Track Name: Running Off The Ground
I am gone so many days
On my back, feeling caged
Though I've lost so many hours
Still I wait, wait to be saved
Because I have to
Because I want to
I have seen too many dawns
Crawl across the skyline grey
Chasing shapes across the walls
In my head, standing tall
Because I have to
Because I want to
It's easy when you know how, g.
Running off the ground
Restless, like a Northern wind
Wanderlust, still sights unseen
I have seen so many strange, wonderful things in my time
Because I had to
because I wanted to
I have spent too many days, to keep count
Stoned out my head
And though I've made so many friends
I have lost some that I've loved
Because I had to
Because I want to
Because I need to
Because I have to
It's easy when you know how
Running off the ground
Track Name: Ruben
Fools in the government they can't agree
Nailed to their reasoning like a birdhouse to a tree
Salazar lying on the Silver Dollar floor
Sleeping policemen need to rewrite their story once more
And we never talk about the things that matter most
Girl in the kitchen, she's pouring rain
I'm in the Blue Room singing songs of catholic pain
Fix is in at the Lord Mayor's show
Amphetamine dealer says 'Everyone must go, go, go"
And we never talk about the things that matter most
There's something I must tell you, I really have to tell you
But I can't, it's the shadow
That lies between thought and cat (between me and you)
What I'm saying, is I've been trying to be strong
It's been so long
And we never talk about the things that matter most
Track Name: Go With Yourself
Go, babe
Nothing's going to change if you don't find the world you don't know
So go now
How you ever going to be what you want
If you don't go now?
"You'll have to leave if you don't pull your weight"
But I never listened
A world of my own
I lived there alone
And took what I'd found
And kept it quiet
"Hey, son
You never have to leave, I didn't mean those things
That I said to you"
It's ok, I'll call you in the week when I have settled in
Don't worry about me
And it was scary, that first night alone
'Though I was almost nineteen
It felt so unreal
It felt like home
Go, babe
No-one's ever going to tell you what to do
Now you're on your own
So go now
The only who suffers is going to be you
If you don't go now
And pretty soon, I grew to love the place
'Though it was cold in winter
Huskisson Street, Liverpool 8
Open my door and step inside
Go, babe
Track Name: Gold Lift
Check your facts
Pay your tax
Above the poor
Below the law
Can't tell the difference 'tween the truth and a lie
It's not hard to read between the lines
Blame the rent
On immigrant
We get screwed if we stay or we leave
They won't be happy 'til we pay for the air that we breathe
Listen to that loathsome dogwhistle blow
Listen to that loathsome dogwhistle blow

It doesn't represent me.
