Track Name: Too Much Long Time
Too much to sing for one song,
Too much to sing for one song.
Too much to sing for one song,
Be singing for a long long time.

Too much to do for one life,
Too much to do for one life,
Too much to do for one life,
Gonna be here a long long time.

And it's a long time coming
It's a long time gone,
It's a long time singing
On my long time song,
It's a long time walking
It's a long time running,
It's a long long long long
Long time coming...

Too much to learn for one head
Too much to learn for one head
Too much to learn for one head
Gonna be in school a long long time.

Too much information,
Too much information,
Too much information,
Be parsing it a long long time.

And it's a long time coming... (etc)
Track Name: Drinking On My Own Again
Drinking on my own again,
Drinking on my own again.
Met a girl few months ago,
But now she doesn't want to know
I'm drinking on my own again.

Drinking on my own again,
Drinking on my own again.
Met a girl on Sunday,
But she threw me out on Monday,
Now I'm drinking on my own again.

Drinking on my own again,
Drinking on my own again.
I met a friend indeed,
Bought a little bag of weed,
Now I'm smoking on my own again.

Smoking on my own again,
Smoking on my own again.
Didn't meet no-one,
But I'm having lots of fun,
I'm smoking on my own again.

Drinking on my own again,
Drinking on my own again.
I guess I've no excuse,
I'm just addicted to the juice,
And I'm drinking...
On my own...
Again.
Track Name: Bless Your Heart
Fleeting meeting, texted greeting,
Each reply sets my heart beating
Knowing flowing, to and froing
And who knows where this is going

Still you woke,
you woke in me a part
I thought had died babe,
Bless your heart...

Late night dances, taking chances
Warnings, no great romances
Prize fixed eyes, in the skies,
A star exploded in your eyes.

Still you woke... (etc)
Track Name: Too Many People
Been a lost soul ever since I was born
All I know how to do is to weep and mourn
Nothing to weep for, nothing to mourn for
Nothing to live for, nothing to die for

Too many people, not enough soul to go around
Too many people, not enough soul...

Here's a lost soul, out on the streets,
All he knows how to do is to beg so he can eat
Used to know more but they won't let him use it
Out there on the streets is he going to lose it?

Too many people...

You can sell your body
You can sell your mind
If you find a buyer
Whose got the time
But don't sell your soul...
Track Name: Fuck And Argue
You were the most irresistable object
The immovable force in me ever knew
Short-skirted rich bitch,
Cold-hearted predator
Sad, that's what attracted me to you

But all we ever did was fuck and argue
Most ill-suited couple anybody knew
All we ever did was fuck and argue
You said you loved me and I said I loved you

But you stopped loving me when I stopped arguing
Took about two years until you knew
Meanwhile it got just physical
And I was so depressed
It was so damn lonely then, loving you,

When all we ever did was fuck and not argue
I tried to talk but it didn't interest you
All we ever did was fuck and not argue
Till the night you said you loved me still
But we were through...

Oooh, how could those things both me true
Dicky down down down
Oooh, it was only one of the two
Dicky down down down.
Track Name: You Can't Lose
If it's a game, why don't you play it
Feels the same, why don't you say it
Such a shame, you feel the way you do
You take no blame and no-one touches you

You can't lose what you never had
You can't choose your mum and dad,
Talking about me, talking about you
But you don't listen, you never do
What you want to do.
Oooh, well I'm going to...

Run away, never coming back,
That's what I say, when everything turns black,
Well what a shame, you feel the way you do,
You take no blame, no-one touches you...

You can't lose etc...
Track Name: Clean Your Fridge
You could be my woman
Honey I could be your man
But if you don't clean those dishes
I ain't going near that pan,
I'll take you for a ride,
Anywhere you wish
Take you home,
I'll clean your fridge.

Cause they call me Mr Clean, babe,
Cleaning is my game.
Let me have that sponge
I'll get it shining white again,
I'll take you for a ride...

If your fridge is getting moldy
You know that ain't right at all
Pretty soon you'll have no way
Of keeping your food fresh and cool,
I'll take you for a ride...
Track Name: Got My Modem Working
Modem working, modem working,
Modem working but it just don't work on you
Ba-be-ba-be-boo-de-bah etc.
Boo-hoo.

Going to dial my connection baby, log into my ISP
Dial my connection, log into my ISP
Wanna see if any female has left any email for me

I got a helpdesk woman giving me advice
Helpdesk woman, give me some advice
Talking about the interrupt conflict on my null device,
(Didn't understand a word...)

Geek out...
Telnet window, tell me what to do
Telnet window. Tell me what to do.
Going to tell that telnet window
I've got something I would rather tell you.

About my modem...
Modem working,
Modem working but... (etc)
Track Name: L'Echarpe Perdu
Don't want to hassle you, know you are busy,
Have little time for the mundane and petty,
But I left a blue and grey scarf at your place
I was hoping it might be returned by your grace

I don't want to call while I feel you would rather
I didn't. And all of the things that in some other
World I might have pursued for your sake I abjure.
I'd still really like that scarf back though...

Oooh, ooh ooh oooh, a la recherche de l'echarpe perdu
Oooh, ooh ooh oooh, a la recherche de l'echarpe perdu

Sent you these verses by SMS message,
A medium we're still defining by usage,
Reflecting that if you had not thought before
I'm a weirdo, you'd be thinking that now.

Oh have the damn scarf, my ex gave it to me,
I am not over her yet though I should be,
I'll meet somebody who'll make me forget
About old blue grey scarves and the love therein trapped...

Chorus
Track Name: Together Again
My life is like a race between the alcohol and nicotine
To see which of the two will be the one that kills me
Wasted dreams and broken hearts, drawn out endings and false starts
Pretending there is still a part which still fulfils me

Then I met you late one night, your smile shone with blinding light
And I'm still dazzled by the sight of what you showed me
If it's not too late for me to live less self-destructively
Turn myself around and be the man I should be

You make me want to be together again
Like I used to be, before I slipped and fell to pieces
You make me want to be together again
Like I used to be, long ago

I know it's not fair on you to pick you out as someone who
Could stop these stupid things I do with just a smile.
I know I'm just some guy you met one night and you don't know me yet
And maybe we'll never get together in the end, still...

You make me want to be together... (etc)
Track Name: Freezeframe Shutters
When the freezeframe shutters come crashing down,
And the stars all shine in the frozen ground,
And the ice shot through me just drips away,
And the drips disappear through the cracks in the clay

Now I'm lost without hope in the forest of dreams,
And my whole bag of tricks just came apart at the seams,
And I think that I can make it but I don't know why,
And I shake my fist at the mote in my eye.
Track Name: Storm's Over
Storm's over, rain gone.
Storm's over, rain gone.
Storm's over now.
I'm on my way home.

Raging storm is over,
Wind has ceased to moan,
The rain has stopped, the penny's dropped
And I'm on my way home,
All rain gone.
Storm's over now.
On my way home.

I feel the summer coming.
I feel it in my bones.
Feel that summer coming
On my way home.
All rain gone.
Storm's over now.
On my way home.
