London band Belleruche is made up of Kathrin deBoer (vocals), Ricky Fabulous (guitar) and DJ Modest (decks); the band was formed after Ricky and Modest, who played bizarre turntable and guitar sets in London bars, bumped in to Kathrin in the market one day; she did some singing over a cup of tea with the pair and Belleruche was born. The trio’s distinctive sound is a self-styled brand of handmade hip hop blues soul: think Sarah Vaughan, Django Reinhardt and Cut Chemist stuck in a lift with Russian beer and a sampler.

A creative, hardworking and driven band right from the off, Belleruche initially released a handful of extremely limited 7” records on their own Hippoflex label, including the ‘Four Songs EP’. These individually numbered 45’s (with hand-printed sleeves) quickly sold out in independent record stores and attracted a cult following in the UK and Europe, having been hand-distributed by the band members.

In 2007 Belleruche signed to Tru Thoughts and their debut album ‘Turntable Soul Music’ was released in July of that year to fantastic reactions from fans and the media alike, garnering admiring reviews both at home and abroad and becoming the fastest-selling debut album in the label’s history. ‘Turntable Soul Music’ comprises songs inspired by rum induced nights, many of which were written in train carriages, dubious minicabs and pub backrooms around the UK. The songs on the album have been forged and reworked in the band’s electrifying live shows, from Belleruche’s initial weekly residency in the Salmon and Compass in Angel, London, to gigs all over the World. Influenced by the likes of DJ Vadim to Nina Simone to Hendrix, ‘Turntable Soul Music’ is a weird sonic trawl through a dusty basement full of the best records you’ve never heard of, whilst a voice you can’t quite pin down sings hooks you can’t forget.

2007 also saw Belleruche supporting the legendary Fat Freddys Drop on tour in Australia and at London’s Hammersmith Apollo; and – never a band in danger of gathering any moss – they spent the remainder of that year taking their alluring live set on a series of dates around Europe and beyond. The final single, and one of the biggest hits from “Turntable Soul Music” was Northern Girls, which came out in March 2008 (and has more recently been synced to a worldwide Mercedes Benz TV advert, sparking a huge surge in sales and recognition). Belleruche then played a range of 2008 festival dates at home and abroad, including Glastonbury and the Montreux Jazz Festival, where they struck up an impromptu onstage jam with The Raconteurs and Vampire Weekend – reportedly one of the highlights of the festival.

Their star started to rise even higher with the release of the highly-anticipated sophomore album “The Express” in October 2008. The first single “Anything You Want (Not That)” was awarded the coveted Single Of The Week spot on iTunes and the album hit No. 1 in the iTunes electronic album chart. With major daytime radio support including Nemone on BBC 6Music, Belleruche’s second, more bluesy album delighted the old faithful while also bringing them to the wider world’s attention and garnering many new fans. One such new convert to the Belleruche magic was Mark Lamarr, who brought them in for a live Maida Vale session for his God’s Jukebox show, then on BBC Radio 2.

The “Liberty EP” came out in March 2010, previewing material from album number three and showcasing yet another evolution in the Belleruche sound. It sold out and had to be re-pressed within two weeks.

The full fruits of their labours were then revealed with the release of the ‘270 Stories’ album in October 2010; an acclaimed concoction of playful basslines, honeycomb vocal harmonies and tight song structures, the album harnessed the chaotic charm and beautifully dishevelled energy of their music for a powerful result. The lead single, “Clockwatching” (backed with an unusual, dubby electronic cover of the Beat’s “Mirror In The Bathroom”) caught the world’s attention, gaining a host of major radio play in the UK and beyond, including Huey Morgan (BBC 6Music), John Kennedy (XFM), Ross Allen (Ministry Of Sound) and more, and the highly creative promo was picked as Video of the Week on the 6Music lunchtime show. Testament to their ever-growing and diversifying fanbase, Belleruche found themselves in high demand, performing live sessions on shows including Craig Charles’ Funk and Soul Show on 6Music and BBC Radio 4’s Clive Anderson-presented ‘Loose Ends’ magazine programme. The second single, “Fuzz Face”, won Steve Lamacq’s Rebel Playlist on BBC 6Music, and received heavy support across the network’s daytime programmes. Belleruche spent the last quarter of 2010 touring the album around the UK, France and North America; they then headed out to Australia in early 2011, hopped back over to the US for a triumphant stint at SXSW, and hurtled straight into more dates in Europe and another comprehensive tour of the UK, which saw them headline London’s Koko to a packed house.

With album number four (‘Rollerchain’, released in May 2012), Belleruche brought a tougher, contemporary pop sound exploring new influences and playing new instruments to exercise the strong and elastic dynamics between the trio. First single “Stormbird” received 60,000 YouTube views in just a few weeks, showing an ever-present anticipation for the new music.

Turntable Soul Music

Northern Girls

Keep on telling you
Keep trying to get through
That big old head
Seems to be wasted breath

What more can I say
I'm not in love with you
Let it go let it go
And I'll be kind to you

I tried the simple things
Didn't return your calls
I was busy every day
Never any time at all

But you needed a bigger clue
I got town 'cause I didn't want to hurt you
But you keep pushing, keep pushing me away

You keep on hounding me
Keep on finding me
You keep on trying me
I can't get away

You keep on hounding me
Keep on finding me
You keep on trying me
I can't get away

Tried to be a friend
Wasn't out to offend
Well I love being with you
Suppose that why you got confused

I thought that we made it clear
I was never to change my mind
You've become so precious dear
But you've got to leave this behind

One day I hope you find
Someone who loves you too
So you'll let me be
And you'll forget you've ever had

A bruised and broken heart
That can't forgive and can't forget
Driving us both spare and mad
Well you're driving me away

You keep on hounding me
Keep on finding me
You keep on trying me
I can't get away

You keep on hounding me
Keep on finding me
You keep on trying me
I can't get away

Keep trying to get closer
Keep trying to get a hold of
Keep on trying, you're driving me away
Keep trying to get closer
Keep trying to get a hold of
Keep on trying, you're driving me away
Oh you're driving me away

You keep on hounding me
Keep on finding me
You keep on trying me
I can't get away

You keep on hounding me
Keep on finding me
You keep on trying me
I can't get away

Keep trying to get closer
Keep trying to get a hold of
Keep on trying
You're driving me away

Keep trying to get closer
Keep trying to get a hold of
Keep on trying
You're driving me away
Oh, you're driving me away

Bump

Something's up with you
I don't know what it is
You've not always been open
But now you're closing in
You keep me guessing
You keep me hanging
I can't kick what you said
Is it what you really want

Never thought I'd be one to sit and be wishing
Never thought I'd be one to sit and be hoping

How'd you get your hold on me
You pull me in and turn me out
How'd you get your hold on me
Took what you could and cleaned me out

How'd you get your hold on me
It's time to run, time to get out
How'd you get your hold on me
You get no more I found you out

There's something about you
I could not ignore
Too easy to forgive
So you thought I was asking for more
You keep me trying
You keep me running
I can't work out your head
I'm never gonna get it

Never thought I'd be one to sit and be wishing
Never thought I'd be one to sit and be hoping

How'd you get your hold on me
You pull me in and turn me out
How'd you get your hold on me
Took what you could and cleaned me out

How'd you get your hold on me
It's time to run, time to get out
How'd you get your hold on me
You get no more I found you out

I could never work you out
So much has been left unsaid
No choice but to walk away
Hard to do when you can't forget

You keep me guessing
You keep me hanging
I tried to shut you out
But you keep on, you keep on

Never thought I'd be one to sit and be wishing
Never thought I'd be one to sit and be hoping

How'd you get your hold on me
You pull me in and turn me out
How'd you get your hold on me
Took what you could and cleaned me out

How'd you get your hold on me
You'll get no more I found you out
Hey how'd you get your hold on me
You'll get no more I found you out

You'll get no more I found you out
Oh took what you could and cleaned me out

How'd you get your,
How'd you get your hold on me
You turn me in and pull me out
You turn me in and pull me out

Reflection

I know you have wasted time
Thinking about her
But here, everybody is standing
Standing beside you
Now don't you worry
'Cause I'm one of them too
My love I have for you
Is strong and is just for you

So take my hand
In this crowded room
Take me anywhere you deem beautiful

It's so easy so simple so beautiful
It's so easy so simple so beautiful
It's so easy so simple so beautiful

So let me, let me guide you
'Cause there's just one thing
I would like to do
I just want to make you happy
I just want to make you happy

So let me, let me guide you
Oh 'cause there's just one thing
I would like to do
I just want to make you happy
I just want to make you happy

It's so easy so simple so beautiful
It's so easy so simple so beautiful
It's so easy so simple so beautiful
It's so easy so simple so beautiful

Minor swing

Lessons to be learnt but who's going to teach
Who's writing the rules, well I decree
A day of tragedy when love is lost
When a friend, when a friend is pissed off

Misunderstandings are so unfair
Psychoanalyse me please oh my friend
Let's begin, let confusion unravel around me

And, and if I give the pieces together
The way they make sense to me I'll do my best
But I can use only what I've seen from where I've been
And the lives that have lived before me
Who's going to look, who's going to cheek
No one can really say 'cause they're all dead
But we can try and only try to live with integrity

So come and see it from
Come and see it from
Come and see it from here

So come and see it from
Come and see it from
Come and see it from here and

Whatever you seek
Which book you may read
Which planet you seek
Script you write and forces you fight

Whatever you seek
Which book you may read
Which planet you seek

Oh no there's will and there's fate
Or random explosions everyday
Or is the world an orchestrated play
Or a clock, tick-tock, a clock work game
Us being the cogs and the product is time
Questions to evolve with the answers to find
Like what the hell, what the hell are we doing here anyhow

Yeah a gift it is to have everything
To fill our lines with happiness and what we desire
But only if you want it, only if you need it
Only if you brave it, only if you seek it
So be kind 'cause there's a piece of me in you
I'll be kind 'cause there's a piece of you in me
A piece of everyone somewhere elsewhere lesser and greater

So come and see it from
Come and see it from
Come and see it from here

So come and see it from
Come and see it from
Come and see it from here and

Whatever you seek
Which book you may read
Which planet you seek
Script you write and forces you fight

Whatever you seek
Which book you may read
Which planet you seek
Oh let's begin tonight

Whatever you seek
Which book you may read
Which planet you seek
Script you write and forces you fight

Whatever you seek
Which book you may read
Which planet you seek

Oh no there's will and there's fate
Or random explosions everyday
Or is the world an orchestrated play
Or a clock, tick-tock, a clock work game
Us being the cogs and the product is time
Questions to evolve with the answers to find
Like what the hell, what the hell are we doing here anyhow
What are we doing here

Balance

Well I hear you've got problems
Just like everybody else
Seems like you're building mountains
And always making the little things swell

Now did you ever think there could be a better way
Or maybe it's time for you to make a charge
Strip it all back look in each direction
Loose the bags, it may just take you to an easier place

Well now you couldn’t be more different
To a very good friend of mine
Always telling me you've got to take the rough
With the smooth and never failing to remind me of this

Whenever, whenever, I'm down
You got to take the rough with the smooth
Yeah you got to take the rough with the smooth
Oh you got to take the rough with the smooth
Yeah you've got to take the rough with the smooth
Rough with the smooth
You got to take the rough with the smooth
Yeah hey hey hey
With the smooth

Well I hear you've got problems
Just like everybody else
Seems like you're building mountains
And always making the little things swell

Well you couldn’t be more different
To a very good friend of mine
Always telling me you've got to take the rough
With the smooth and never failing to remind me of this

Whenever, whenever, I'm down
You got to take the rough with the smooth
Yeah you got to take the rough with the smooth
Yeah you got to take the rough with the smooth
Yeah you've got to take the rough with the smooth
Rough with the smooth
You got to take the rough with the smooth
Yeah hey hey hey

You got to take the rough with the smooth
You got to take the rough with the smooth
You got to take the rough with the smooth
You got to take the rough

Bird mess

Don't care, won't go nowhere
I'll stay home
And make a little mess

Two hearts colliding
Well it's doomed
You're gonna get yourself in a mess
Hopes and expectations leave you
Ever so confused
Go your way and I'll go mine
So we'll never ever have to cross

Once upon a time I'd say
Rest your feet and weary head
Close your eyes and make yourself warm in my bed

Once upon a time I'd say
Rest your feet and weary head
Close your eyes and make yourself warm in my bed

Well I won't listen
I won't even take your call
No I won't listen
I won't even take your calls

Don't care, won't go nowhere
I'll stay home
And make a little mess

Two hearts colliding
Well it's doomed
You're gonna get yourself in a mess
Hopes and expectations leave you
Ever so confused
Go your way and I'll go mine
And we'll never ever have to cross

Once upon a time I'd say
Rest your feet and weary head
Close your eyes and make yourself warm in my bed

Once upon a time I'd say
Rest your feet and weary head
Close your eyes and make yourself warm in my bed

Well I won't listen
I won't even take your call
No I won't listen
I won't even take your calls

Warm in my bed
Once upon a time I'd say
Rest your feet and weary head
Close your eyes and make yourself warm in my bed

Once upon a time I'd say
Rest your feet and weary head
Close your eyes and make yourself warm in my bed

13:6;35

So listen to it
You've got to make it fit
And if you mess it up
You've got to start

All over all over again
Oh again
Once more
Once more and again

So try to give it up
And listen hard to your heart
And smile at me
Make it short, make it sweet

Well you may complain about your destiny
Not giving you the cards you would like to see
Well you may complain about your destiny
Not giving you the cards you would like to see

So give it up
And you may see
All the gold stars in your skies
Give it up
And you may feel
Tiny little kisses from me

Oh don't be late
Make it quick
I tell you now
I won't wait

Make it up
As we go along
Make it short
But most of all
Most of all make it sweet

So break my heart
As you break it down
And I loose my thought
And we loose motion

Alice

Come again
I didn't catch what you said
Come again
I didn't clock what you meant
I think I'm earning a subtle aversion to you
Someone must be looking after me
Making it so very easy to forget about you
Walk right past look right through and not feel a thing
Well I suppose it's got to happen when someone is too cool

And I know all the tricks are in the book
You aught to leave them there you don't get a second look
Keep your cool now don't you be warming up
Leave me messages short and sweet asking if I'd like to meet
Just like the first time
Well the first time that we met
Got the golden treatment
Couldn't get you out of my head
But I remember oh so clear
There's good reason that you're not there

Oh 'cause I'm over it
Yeah feeling remarkably fine
I'm over it
Yeah feeling remarkably fine
I'm over it
Yeah feeling so fine
I'm over it
Yeah feeling remarkably
Feeling so fine

Oh boy you better be joking or do you think I'm mad
That I would ever contemplate, ever coming back
To hear it all again and watch your wandering whims
Your eyes never convinced me that you could be my man
So remember, don't be getting close over here
I'll help you with your coat
I see the glimmer, I see the hope, I see your pride
Let me introduce you to mine

Oh 'cause I'm over it
Yeah feeling remarkably fine
I'm over it
Yeah feeling remarkably fine
I'm over it
Oh feeling
I'm over it
Yeah feeling remarkably
Feeling so fine

'Cause I'm over it
Yeah feeling remarkably fine
I'm over it
Yeah feeling remarkably fine
I'm over it
Yeah feeling, feeling so fine
I'm over it
Feeling, feeling so fine
Feeling so, Oh feeling so fine

The Itch

No I don't think you understand
What I'm looking for, what I yearn for
What I say, who I am and what I stand for
No, no, no

I will not agree, just to keep your peace
Hope you won't agree just to stay with me
It can't be any other way

Even if you
Even if you shift me to the east
Raise me to the north
And drown me in the south
What's left to explore

Don't deny me
I've got your number
I know where you live
Don't refuse me
I know what you need
And just how much to give
Shall I give you what I think you need
Will you let me rack up what I feel
Is good for you, what is good for you
What is good for you

No I'm not asking for
Your undivided twenty four
I need much more than that
Such is the necessity I give more just to receive
But it's the respect I've go to feel
I can't compromise this need
Same as my desire to feel

Even if you
Even if you shift me to the east
Raise me to the north
And drown me in the south
What's left to explore

Don't deny me
I've got your number
I know where you live
Don't refuse me
I know what you need
And just how much to give
Shall I give you what I think you need
Will you let me rack up what I feel
Is good for you, what is good for you
What is good for you

No I don't think you understand
I couldn't talk to you for a week
Out of disappointment and sadness you let me down
And I yearn for you still
Just miss you around

Don't deny me
I've got your number
I know where you live
Don't refuse me
I know what you need
And just how much to give
Shall I give you what I think you need
Will you let me rack up what I feel
Is good for you, what is good for you
What is good for you

Don't deny me
Don't refuse me
Shall I give you what I think you need
Will you let me rack up what I feel

Satisfy the purpose you've got to find
Satisfy the purpose you've got to find
Satisfy the purpose you've got to find
Satisfy the purpose you clarified

It'll come

May as well turn around
It doesn't really matter which way you go
Backstep for surefooling
Sidestep for perspective
Oh but be sure, yes be sure
Rest assured, oh be sure
That it will come to you

You've got to flow with the vibe
Flow with the stream
Choose if you must but
Choose fearlessly

Oh it will come to you
If you take some time
And stay true to you

Oh it will come to you
If you take some time
And stay true

Oh it will come to you
If you take some time
And stay true to you

Oh it will come to you
If you take some time
And stay true

Sit back and relax
And let it happen naturally
No use in forcing then fighting
And making and breaking and using forcefully
'Cause you may be rowing your boat upstream
And find yourself up someone else's creek
Lost time wasted sweat and tears
No one has so many years
Weather you do, oh weather you don't
So what if you're a mess
'Cause everyone
Everyone's been there

Oh it will come to you
If you take some time
And stay true to you

Oh it will come to you
If you take some time
And stay true to you

Oh it will come
It will come to you
Oh it will come to you
If you take some time
And stay true

Oh it will come to you
If you take some time
And stay true to you

Oh it will come to you
Take some time
Take some time
If you stay true to you
If you stay true to you
If you stay true to you
It will come to you
Take some time, take some time

Bought + Sold

I kick myself everyday
For falling in love with you
Looking back I saw so green
I never thought that love could ever be so cruel

Well be that what it may
You know it's not that hard to say
You may be the new Mr Wonder
But you're going to need a friend when you get there

So don't play that stupid game with me honey
Let me find out for myself
That you've got something going on
Something not with somebody else

And don't play that stupid game with me honey
Let me find out for myself
That you've got something going on
Something not with somebody else

I used to care to know what you were thinking
Used to care to know what was on your mind
I used to see you in my future
Somewhere close or close by

I heard it all before
You just want to be free
Well if that's the case don't becoming here
And asking sweet with me
Don't be coming here now
And ??? sweet with me
Don't be coming here now

The Express

Anything You Want (Not That)

Tried to deny I had a weakness for you
Tried to hide I did the best I could do
But you weren't to be convinced or fooled
In no time I couldn't get enough of you

We spent some time doing one thing or another
Never really mattered as long as we were together
I was impressed your tricks worked a treat
Realised too late I shouldn't tell you how I feel

Well I feel for you
I went and fell for you
Well I feel for you
I went and fell for you

Forgive the doe eyed relentless attention
If it's on I'm on and there's no more use in pretending
Close to the chase it's clear you've had fun playing
Some liberties well you've surely been taking

Now you blew me away with your quick turn around
Clocked a reaction I was least expecting
Realised too late if I wanted to keep you
I'll have to be good at treating you mean

Well I feel for you
I went and fell for you
Well I feel for you
I went and fell for you
Oh

I can't deny we had something good
Never see it coming when it coming when it turns on you
Before I knew it I was in too deep, what can I say
Something's just ain't meant to be there

This is trouble and ain't going nowhere
Good riddens to you if that's how you play it
It stops right here I'm throwing you back in
This is a story where no one ever wins

Well I feel for you
I went and fell for you
Well I feel for you
I went and fell for you

Well I feel for you
I went and fell for you
Well I feel for you
I went and fell for you
Yes I did
I went and fell for you
Yes I did
I went and fell for you

Backyard

Give me the strength
To carry through
Give me the breath
To do what I got to do

Give me the strength
To carry through
Give me the breath
To do what I got to do

I understand that the world is bigger
Than I ever thought possible
I recognize my action knock on you
Even if I've never met you
I don't have to see you to know you exist
I don't have to meet you to feel your suffering
Want to make a difference don't know where to start
Well it ain't in oblivion
You're not at the bottom
You're not at the top
You're just part of something bigger than all of us
Collectively we choose, what

Give me the strength
To carry through
Give me the breath
To do what I got to do

Give me the strength
To carry through
Give me the breath
To do what I got to do

There comes a time when all the lights are on
When the time is right to start things off
That's time that you're got to get along
Bare down, bare down
There are times that I can't quite explain
Why it works and why it can't be the same
How it's going to be, the future's not clear to me
And we're stuck in this like everybody else
Trying to find away that doesn't step on toes
I'm happy to get along minding my own
Head down, head down

Give me the strength
To carry through
Give me the breath
To do what I got to do

Give me the strength
To carry through
Give me the breath
To do what I got to do

Oh give me the strength
To carry through
Give me the breath
To do what I got to do

Oh give me the strength
To carry through
Give me the breath
To do what I got to do

Idea Three

Take a little piece now
And save a little for laters
If you come back in time
There might be more for the taking
Bite only what you can chew
Take only what you can use
There's plenty to go around if we don't abuse
Revine the soul by letting go
The weighty heart and heavy conscience
Release the woes of a troubled world
And give them one by one their fair dealing

Take a little time to give a little more
Take a little time to know a little more
Save some time to understand

Take a little time to give a little more
Take a little time to know a little more
Save some time to understand

Oh take a little time to give a little more
Take a little time to know a little more
Save some time to understand

Oh take a little time to give a little more
Take a little time to know a little more
Save some time to understand

It's a heavy burden to bare
If it's knowledge and wisdom we're wasting
To allow a people to fall forsaken
It's a heavy load to shift
What matters now we begin
And don't take to long with the mending and the fixing
So many souls are aching
Too many hearts have been breaking
Forgive the fools that were mistaken
No one ever did find a good use for regret

Take a little time to give a little more
Take a little time to know a little more
Save some time to understand

Take a little time to give a little more
Take a little time to know a little more
Save some time to understand

Oh take a little time to give a little more
Take a little time to know a little more
Save some time to understand

Oh take a little time to give a little more
Take a little time to know a little more
Save some time to understand

????

Revine the soul by letting go
Release the woes of a troubled world
Forgive the fools that were mistaken
No one ever did find a good use for regret

Take a little time to give a little more
Take a little time to know a little more
Save some time to understand

Take a little time to give a little more
Take a little time to know a little more
Save some time to understand

Oh take a little time to give a little more
Take a little time to know a little more
Save some time to understand

Take a little time to give a little more
Take a little time to know a little more
Save some time to understand

So give a little
Take a little now
Give a little
Take a little now

Give a little
Take a little now
Give a little
Take a little now

Goose blues

There are times when I'm alone
I think of you and I need to calm down
There are times when I see you
I want to tell you that you got to come around

There are things that you possess
I can't resist and could never turn now
There are things that you affect
I never dreamt could ever be found

There's a fire in my soul yeah
Because of you now why don't come around
There's a fire in my soul yeah
Because of you now you ought to come around
Oh come around
Why don't you come around
Oh come around

This here place deep in my heart
Well it won't change no matter where you go
This here place deep in my heart
Is just for you and I know that it will grow

Out of seas of uncertainty
You can come here and I will keep you warm
In times that you are lost
You can come here and I will keep you warm

There's a fire in my soul yeah
Because of you now why don't come around
There's a fire in my soul yeah
Because of you now you ought to come around, come around
Oh come around
Why don't you come around
Oh come around

I can't give what you can buy
But I can give you all I call my own
This comfort, this ease, this state of mind
Ain't nothing we can hold

I can't give what you can buy
But I can give you all I call my own
This comfort, this ease, this state of mind
Ain't nothing we can hold

Like 4 the hard way

Come now and dare to be straight with me
I'll share I might even be straight with you
Go on now, shed some skin
So I can get a good look in
And I'll find out what makes you tick
All it's here
Cause you're here and I'm here
And I feel this is where it's gonna get most interesting

Won't you tell me something
Tell me, tell me something true
Won't you tell me something
Tell me, tell me something true

Won't you tell me something
Tell me something true
Won't you tell me something

I know you've got your secrets
Well I've got some too
No need to tell me everything
I'd also like to keep a few
Too sweet to be shy now
Since we've broken down down
Everything that can be broke, oh
Is your story getting old
Well, we've been spending some time
And what a lovely time it's been

Won't you tell me something
Tell me, tell me something true
Won't you tell me something
Oh tell me something true

Won't you tell me something
Tell me something true
Won't you tell me something
Tell me, tell me something true

I'm not sure what you want from me
Nor what I want from you
Some tales I can't quite believe
Even though I'd like to
Sea stories you've been spinning free
You got my curiosity down someone else’s memory lane
Oh a little bit too strange
Well, we've been spending some time
And what a lovely time it's been

Won't you tell me something
Tell me, tell me something true
Won't you tell me something
Tell me something true

Won't you tell me something
I'd like to hear something
Won't you tell me something
Cause I'd like to get to know you

Rumble strip

I do regret we've been there
I find it hard to remember
My heads doing a good job
Of erasing unwanted memory
Try not to regret a thing

Oh so be bold and be brave and be strong
And learn from all that goes down when it goes wrong
Be bold and be brave and move on

Sweet child make your own
You know it's better that way
Wait for your free ride
Well someone's always got to pay

Sweet child make your own
You know it's better that way
Wait for your free ride
Well someone's always got to pay

Bend it to the positive most of the time
It feels far away too deep under
When I'm bored of it and aching for a change
Biding my time for brand new adventure

Just like my first pair of boots I bought in Boston
Had to change my walk when I got them
Found out some boots aren't just make for walking
'Cause these were made for stomping

Sweet child make your own
You know it's better that way
Wait for your free ride
Well someone's always got to pay

Sweet child make your own
You know it's better that way
Wait for your free ride
Well someone's always got to pay

I do regret we've been there
I find it hard to remember
My heads doing a good job
Of erasing unwanted memory
Try not to regret a thing

Oh so be bold and be brave and be strong
And learn from all that goes down when it goes wrong
Be bold and be brave and be strong and move on

Sweet child make your own
You know it's better that way
Wait for your free ride
Well someone's always got to pay

Sweet child make your own
You know it's better that way
Wait for your free ride
Well someone's always got to pay

How many times

Being nice never got you anywhere
Being sweet got you in troubles there
Being nice no never got you very far
You cop it sweet now get on play your part

Sweet memory can't help you grow
Unless you want to live in the past
And live in what you know
You know the rules where'd they ever get you
Someone's gonna push until they get a rise out of you

So come out and say it
This ain't the way you wanted to play it
When your frustration flies over your eyes
And you see your girl with another guy

How many times are you going to live this through
He ain't gonna change, he doesn't deserve you
If you're gonna try well it's got to come true
Pick up all your strength and we'll be waiting here for you

If you're got your doubts, think a year down the line
If you think it's bad now, well baby give it time
He seems to squeeze, all the love out of you
I'm scared he ain't gonna leave nothing left for you

So come out and say it
This ain't the way you wanted to play it
When your frustration flies over your eyes
And you see your boy with another girl

Oh being nice never got you anywhere
Being sweet got you in troubles there
Oh being nice no never got you very far
You cop it sweet now get on play your part

So come out and say it
This ain't the way you wanted to play it
When your frustration flies over your eyes
And you see your boy with another girl

Oh did it take you
Did it take you by surprise
Did it take you
Did it take you
Did it take you by surprise

Scratch my soul

I’m not giving up on you
I'm giving up on us
'Cause I'm so damn lonely again
And you're so out of touch

Is it not obvious
Not clear enough
That this won't do
This waiting on you

I know you want to be, but you ain't
I know you'd like to be, but you can't
I know you would do, but you don't
So tell me where it leaves me
It leaves me without you

You say you don't understand
And say we will be fine
Deny we got a problem on our hands
But none the less apologise
But before you do, come and understand why

I know you want to be, but you ain't
I know you'd like to be, but you can't
I know you would do, but you don't
So tell me where it leaves me
It leaves me without you
Oh without you

You may be something to so many
And say you want to be everything to me
I've been calling out to you
But you don't hear

And now my hands are tied
And I cry at the thought of losing you
But I'm lonely with or without you

I know you want to be, but you ain't
I know you'd like to be, but you can't
I know you would do, but you don't
So tell me where it leaves me
Oh yeah
I know you want to be, but you ain't
I know you'd like to be, but you can't
I know you would do, but you don't
So tell me where it leaves me
Oh yeah tell me where it leaves me
Oh well tell me where it leaves me
It leaves me without you

Late train

Just got to give it time
And then it gets easier
Like the truth
Always making things clearer

Well you got to give it time
And then it gets easier
Like the truth
When it comes to you
Always making things clearer

Boy you can't stop her from running
If she's not ready to settle
If she's not ready to settle down

If she doesn't want to keep you
Let her go there's no use in
There's no use in waiting around
Come now well, come pick up forgive her
She wasn't out to hurt you
Just wasn't meant to be this time

Well you got to give it time
And it's gonna get easier
Like the truth
Always making things clearer

Well you got to give it time
And it's gonna get easier
Like the truth
When it comes to you
Always making things clearer

I don't have any answers
If you're looking at me for them
There are some things that can't be defined
Let it alone try to release her
It's a waste of time to be bitter
I'll distract you for now if that helps you out

My friend you're never alone
We've all been and we've all seen it
There isn't a soul that can't understand

Well you got to give it time
And then it gets easier
Like the truth
Always making things clearer

Well you got to give it time
And it's gonna get easier
Like the truth
When it comes to you
Always making things clearer

Come now pick up forgive her
She wasn't out to hurt you
Just wasn't meant to be this time round

Quit now or you'll drive herself crazy
Torture your poor heart over
The should've could've maybe's racing through your mind

Harsh words from one friend to another
They're just meant to keep you together
And keep your heart out of the lost and found

Well you got to give it time
And it's gonna get easier
When the truth, when it comes to you
Always making things clearer

Well you got to give it time
And it's gonna get easier
Oh like the truth, when it comes to you
Always making things clearer
Like the truth, when it comes to you
Always making things true
When it comes to you
Always making things true
When it comes to you
Always making things clearer
Always making things clearer

You're listening to the worlds

I shy from the loudest voice
The serpent I avoid
Choose to fight a battle rare

It doesn't mean that I am bad
It doesn't mean that I am scared
It's just not worth the breath

I speak my mind when I'm at home
Censor when I'm not alone
Choose who I am open to

It doesn't mean that I am closed
It doesn't mean I've given up on hope
It's just not worth the breath

I hear when I must defend
When you've got naught to prove
I'll wait and listen to your view

It doesn't mean we must agree
It doesn't mean that you know me
It's just where it begins

We live in a time of change
Breathe in what remains
Left from worlds before

It doesn't mean we should destroy
Carry on mistakes ignored
It's just all too short

I cry when I can't express
This feeling of torment
When I can't get through to you

I do because I care
I do out of despair
Wish you could understand

I'm low when I get it wrong
When dreams have been shot down
When I reveal things I don't want to see

It doesn't mean I'm in denial
It doesn't mean I want to hide
But there's too much to bare

Fuzz Face

Would you mind if I just dropped by
Said a little hello and gave you some attention
Could I drop by unannounced
Let myself in, would it be so surprising

Or too forward too brash too bold
Too rash head strain too sneaky
Just say the word if it's all too much
I might listen to you, but you better saw it sweetly

If you do well you're damned if you don't
Said if you do well you're damned if you don't
Said if you do well you're damned if you don't
Said if you do well you're damned if you don't

Without a game it's oh so simple
Without a game I wouldn't want to
Without a game it's not surprising
Without a game I couldn't have you

Would you mind if I took a little liberty
Switched it up, dodged the bullet coming back at me
Sometimes I may be a little reckless
Throw reason out and let it go to my head

I love the glow of your little green dragon
It makes you do things you'd not imagined
Not contemplate the sweet indecency
Before we lose the moment we're in

If you do well you're damned if you don't
Said if you do well you're damned if you don't
Said if you do well you're damned if you don't
Said if you do well you're damned if you don't

If you do well you're damned if you don't
Said if you do well, you're damned if you don't
Said if you do well you're damned if you don't
Said if you do well you're damned if you don't

Without a game it's oh so simple
Without a game I wouldn't want to
Without a game it's not surprising
Without a game I couldn't have you

I'm of a conviction I will live once
So I ask myself now why the hell not
Far from hedonistic extravagance
Explain till I'm blue, any of this making sense

If you get it wrong, misunderstand me
I dare you to try and call me anything
Happens regardless, I couldn't care
Well I couldn't even care less, if you call me shameless

Without a game it's oh so simple
Without a game I wouldn't want to
Without a game it's not surprising
Without a game I couldn't have you

Without a game it's oh so simple
Without a game I wouldn't want to
Without a game it's not surprising
Without a game I couldn't have you

Tired Robot

Well I don't want to try in vain if you made up your mind
I can't say that mine will change
We'll have to agree to disagree on certain circumstance
In this unfortunate situation we find ourselves in

By now it must be clear that I'm sorry I confuse matters now and then
I just can't stand the sight of you hurting, over hurting again and again

Some times I feel like I'm not worth a thing
Too sensitive I don't know how else to be
Feel close to you and that's where I'd like to stay
You make me feel that it's not a good thing

Not worth a thing, not worth a
Not worth a thing
Not worth a

Chances are relief must prevail, are you not aching for some kind of reprieve
Or have you a heart grown so weary it fails you and you can not feel
Well I can assure you somehow sometimes this will be over eventually
Then you can sit back and question the hows and whens till your hearts content and you'll see

Some times I feel like I'm not worth a thing
Too sensitive I don't know how else to be
Feel close to you and that's where I'd like to stay
You make me feel that it's not a good thing

Not worth a thing, not worth a
Not worth a thing
Not worth a

And I thought you'd care to be friends as I'm not impressed by ultimatums
If I don't give in give you all you want you'll leave giving me the impression it will be permanently
So am I wrong to think am I right you'll do your best to reconcile
Am I wrong to think am I right you'll do your best to try
Am I wrong to think am I right the end is here now in sight
And am I wrong to think am I right one of our wishes will be denied

Some times I feel like I'm not worth a thing
Too sensitive I don't know how else to be
Feel close to you and that's where I'd like to stay
You make me feel that it's not a good thing

Not worth a thing, not worth a
Not worth a thing
Not worth a

Bobby

The stupid things
That come out of your mouth
I should know
What you're trying to say
Whatever it is you mean

In your roundabout way
I'll read between the lines
To keep up with you
Hell, I don't care
I'll never mind
You've made me smile
Since you crashed into my life
Took me out of my space
And my everyday

If your heaven and earth falls
Or my universe fails
At the end of the day
If the lights turn out
It won't matter at all
At the end of the day

I'm sorry I'm afraid
Apologies only complicate
I'll try to talk to you do the best I can to help you
Understand where I'm coming from
It's about time, here's the place
We'll walk the line, it'll make or break
What about time, here's the space
We'll walk the line, it will make or break

If your heaven and earth falls
Or my universe fails
At the end of the day
If the lights turn out
It won't matter at all
At the end of the day

If your heaven and earth falls
Or my universe fails
At the end of the day
If the lights turn out
It won't matter at all
At the end of the day

If your heaven and earth falls
Or my universe fails
At the end of the day
If the lights turn out
It won't matter at all
At the end of the day

If your heaven and earth falls
Or my universe fails
At the end of the day
If the lights turn out
It won't matter at all
At the end of the day

3 Amp Fuse

I need
To find an answer
‘Cause I'm still
Asking the same questions

As I did a year ago, have I not learnt a thing
Anything at all, shed some light because I'm drowning
Just a clue will do before I make the same mistake again
Do I have to wipe the slate clean and start off, start over and over again

It's late, much too late now
Let fate have this way out
How long must I wait for
A way out or last call

And I need
Some kind of relief
To quench this incessant insanity

Start again and finish off what I first started
Draw a line and keep head above water and swim
Where to go I just don't know just do not look down
Scale the heights and try to come out unscathed at the other side

It's late, much too late now
Let fate have this way out
How long must I wait for
A way out or last call

Hanging on by the teeth I'll figure it out some day
Any clue will do I'll find it one of these days
Here we go again, still not far from where I began
Chances are I won't retreat on regret when I am looking back

It's late, much too late now
Let fate have this way out
How long must I wait for
A way out or last call

It's late, much too late now
Let fate have this way out
How long must I wait for
A way out or last call

Cat In A Dog Suit

I'm missing a part of you
Like it's a part of me
The piece you wanted back so desperately

You know it would have been nice
To have a little more time
To catch my breath

Instead you cleaned me out,
You said it was for my own good
You should know I understand the meaning of over

Then you tell me to read between the lines
Afraid of what I'll find
You either held me too tight or held me down

Then you tell me to read between the lines
There might be things you need to find
Would you ever think to put it to right

And I wish to clarify
The particular night
It all turned sour and you lost your head

Come enter Mr Hyde
You flipped right out of my mind
Side swiped, where the hell did that come from

Ever thought you could confide
It'd been brewing for sometime
Talk it out, instead you preferred to shock and awe

Then you tell me to read between the lines
Afraid of what I'll find
You either held me too tight or held me down

Then you tell me to read between the lines
There might be things you need to find
Would you ever think to put it to right

Well I wish I could remind
Myself of the first time
Three strikes I was out a long time ago

Now there's nothing more to see
And nothing left to feel
Nothing more I can do for you

Seems obvious to me
There's something else that runs too deep
A part of you don't let anyone in to see

Then you tell me to read between the lines
Afraid of what I'll find
You either held me too tight or held me down

Then you tell me to read between the lines
There might be things you need to find
Would you ever think to put it to right

Then you tell me to read between the lines
Afraid of what I'll find
You either held me too tight or held me down

Then you tell me to read between the lines
There might be things you need to find
Would you ever think to put it to right

You Me Us Them

I had not predicted and who could have known
The outcomes not favourable, it has been shown
Can I appeal on compassionate grounds

Now the horse has bolted so to speak
Then there's us then there's them
Then there's you then there's me
This situation was never destined for simplicity

Why do I have to ignore your kiss
I've never kissed anybody like this
You brush your shoulder
And I feel it all over, it's all over

I don't want to have to pretend
This lover comes to me first as a friend
Not meant to be or even happen

Believe me I can see where you all are coming from
Any chance you can undo all the work that you've done
On this involuntary rare kind collision

This could not be described as pleasurable
Cupids arrow missed you and hit me with two
Clemency pl ease for these tears are hot and plentiful

Why do I have to ignore your kiss
I've never kissed anybody like this
You brush your shoulder
And I feel it all over, it's all over

I don't want to have to pretend
This lover comes to me first as a friend
Not meant to be or even happen

The situation is so unpleasantly cruel
The distance I am assumed to respect is for whom
Do I really have to wait for the another lifetime

For now the casualty looks likely to be me
Spare the others how noble it would see
I am so damned fond of this incarnation

Why do I have to ignore your kiss
I've never kissed anybody like this
You brush your shoulder
And I feel it all over, it's all over

I don't want to have to pretend
This lover comes to me first as a friend
Not meant to be or even happen

I don't want to have to pretend
This lover comes to me first as a friend
Not meant to be or even happen

Shudder & Cry

It's a crying shame
It's a crying shame
It's a crying shame
It's a crying shame

He wants for nothing
That's all he got
Some big fat nothing
Then he went and lost the lot

He says in life it's certain
That you must die
It will catch you up and bring you down
Bring you down by surprise

Hear him shudder, hear him cry
Hear him holler, late into the night

It's a crying shame
It's a crying shame
It's a crying shame
It's a crying shame

I see said the blind man as his blood returned to red
Bottle kept his memory, years slapped at his face
Reminded him not of who he was but who he was not
Then regret kept him blinded to the man that he truly was

Hear him shudder, hear him cry
Hear him holler, late into the night

It's a crying shame
It's a crying shame
It's a crying shame
It's a crying shame

The day he died a smile stretched across his face
Sober eyes lost the yearning and let him rest at ease
His soul found the lost man and returned him home to peace
Lost years but at the end pure release

Hear him shudder, hear him cry
Hear him holler, late into the night

It's a crying shame
It's a crying shame
It's a crying shame
It's a crying shame

Hear him shudder, hear him cry
Hear him shudder, hear him cry
Hear him shudder, hear him cry
Hear him shudder, hear him cry...

Clockwatching

Seems like the little things are slowly bringing you down
Pushing past your limits, I can see you reaching meltdown
How'd you flip into a habit of aching for anybody’s praise
Why'd you want to take it on and hear what a stranger has to say

Put them back in the backseat
Your dues have long been paid
Too many times, too many times, too many times

Put them back in the backseat
Your dues have long been paid
Too many times, too many times, too many times

Put them back in the backseat
Your dues have long been paid
Too many times, too many times, too many times

Put them back in the backseat
Your dues have long been paid
Too many times, too many times, too many times

Seems to me you pushed through and forgot the fact you need to feed your soul
That you can't hear the words you said to me so many times before
That you pulled me out of black holes, helped me level and carry on my own
Hadn't thought it true of you do as I say not I have done

Put them back in the backseat
Your dues have long been paid
Too many times, too many times, too many times

Put them back in the backseat
Your dues have long been paid
Too many times, too many times, too many times

Put them back in the backseat
Your dues have long been paid
Too many times, too many times, too many times

Put them back in the backseat
Your dues have long been paid
Too many times, too many times, too many times

Did you take it on the chin
Did you bite your tongue hard
Did you hold back when
You were meant to dive in

Did you think it a waste of time
Lie and say it's all just fine
Did you keep it to yourself
And turn a blind eye to help

Tell me when you lost your heart
Gave up said it's too hard
Lost your place and get replaced
Were you shunted back into line
When did you loose your trust in us
In the people that do love
You just the way you are
Now rise up boy you fell too fat

Put them back in the backseat
Your dues have long been paid
Too many times, too many times, too many times

Put them back in the backseat
Your dues have long been paid
Too many times, too many times, too many times...

Ginger Wine

Maybe we can leave it all
Leave every bother at the shore
Come man the deck and warm your soul
Night is cool up here

Listen to the radio
Hear the tunes that coax the soul
As she hums and takes us to
Another shore unknown

Salty winds that kiss my lips
Ginger wine upon I sip
Watch the moon wake the stars
Take us to sunrise

I'm the stranger one can trust
Story ever safe in us
Tune into the radio
Another line we cross

Listen to the radio
Hear the tunes that coax the soul
As she hums and takes us to
Another shore unknown

Listen to the radio
Hear the tunes that coax the soul
As she hums and takes us to
Another shore unknown

Listen to the radio
Listen to the radio
Listen to the radio
Another line we cross

Gold Rush

If I must then I will let it be known
Divulge with pleasure then I'll have to run it home
Why it bothers me so much, I don’t ever want to believe
If the evidence is out there what blinds us not to see

Credit to you it's hard to see through smoke screen
I recommend you question motives that spin the wheel of business and greed
To accept leave unchallenged the majority rule
Subscription to denial weekly is it forgivable

If we ignore the urgency
Somewhere gone wrong it's scaring me
The evidence disturbs the peace
If it's not too late then we better start trying

If we ignore the urgency
Somewhere gone wrong it's scaring me
The evidence disturbs the peace
If it's not too late then we better start trying

I think it's time to redefine the powers
Push to override decline immunity disposed upon the giant
Expose the dire situation with the practical the rational
Forge questions to the corporations authorizing the unethical extortionate
Dishonourable exorbitant ‘cause there's got to come a time to contemplate deliberate the facts
Burn them back from the chaff, makes no sense to siphon
Take consume extract monopolize without giving something back

If we ignore the urgency
Somewhere gone wrong it's scaring me
The evidence disturbs the peace
If it's not too late then we better start trying

If we ignore the urgency
Somewhere gone wrong it's scaring me
The evidence disturbs the peace
If it's not too late then we better start trying

Since the utopian existence we imagined as a child
Drifted further far away as we got holder and wise
Brought you down broke your back thread bare burnt out
May I coax you to consider to remember that
The end of the day words are consequence
And the end of the day you do have consequence
We have a powerful vernacular I want to make it audible
Notable, legible, accessible and louder now

If we ignore the urgency
Somewhere gone wrong it's scaring me
The evidence disturbs the peace
If it's not too late then we better start trying

If we ignore the urgency
Somewhere gone wrong it's scaring me
The evidence disturbs the peace
If it's not too late then we better start trying

If we ignore the urgency
Somewhere gone wrong it's scaring me
If we ignore the urgency
Somewhere gone wrong it's scaring me

If we ignore the urgency
Somewhere gone wrong it's scaring me
If we ignore the urgency
Somewhere gone wrong it's scaring me

If we ignore the urgency
Somewhere gone wrong it's scaring me
If we ignore the urgency
Somewhere gone wrong it's scaring me

Churro

Ever, no
I would not ever say
Forever, no
I could not ever say
Forever
I'd be more inclined to say
Never
Would I be forgiven if I did

Ever, no
I would not ever say
Forever, no
I could not ever say
Forever
I'd be more inclined to say
Never
Would I be forgiven if I did
If I did...

Rollerchain

Stormbird

Cascading mental tsunami
Scattering remnants left by the last one
Burned in memory sacred fucked up
Pages that can not be torn out
Wires tangled wrong impression
Ending in confused eruption
Secret triumph consolation
Heart tries to stop instead she lights up
Instead she lights up
Instead she lights up
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Troubled prelude at a standstill
Crestfallen regretfully downcast
As the rain falls dark clouds brewing
Winds are bringing calm before the storm
Quickens the imagination
Future without total destruction
Secret triumph consolation
Restores calm halcyon in your arms
Halcyon in your arms
Halcyon in your arms

Secret triumph consolation
Restores calm halcyon in your arms
Incandescent electrifying heart
Tries to stop instead she lights up
Secret triumph consolation
Restores calm, halcyon in your arms
Incandescent electrifying
Heart tries to stop instead she lights up
Instead she lights up
Instead she lights up
Instead she lights up
Instead she lights up
Instead she lights up
Instead she lights up

Wasted Time

Wasted all my time on you
I got given the facts but didn't have a clue
Wasted all my time on you
Seems I could not give what I needed to

Inspire you I'm out of luck
I never stopped loving you
I thought you knew that thought you knew
I wasted all my time on you

How didn't you know
How couldn't you know
Why couldn't you figure
Oh that all I wanted
All I needed
Was in you

Crash and burn was that our way
Or so it seemed at the end of the day
It's too late to hesitate
You couldn't be arsed so we went our separate ways
It's just what you do so simple to say
But so hard to take
I find it hard to understand
I fail to see how we passed on our chance
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
How didn't you know
How couldn't you know
Why couldn't you figure
Oh that all I wanted
All I needed
Was in you

Should not be so easy to walk away
It's about all I can
It's about all I can take
Time passes and it's all too late
There's time I wish I could wish away all this
I could wish away our fall from grace

How didn't you know
How couldn't you know
Why couldn't you figure
Oh all I wanted
All I needed
Was in you

Should not be so easy to walk away
It's about all I can
It's about all I can take
Time passes and it's all too late
There's time I wish I could wish away all this
I could wish away our fall from grace

Get more

It's all a bit of harmless fun taking it out on everyone
Sad and unfortunate struck first
I see you're proud of being so damn clever
But really you should know better
Consider them your entertainment

What is it worth, what will it take
What you will
What you will, you're on the make
Humiliation is an expensive game
Justify yourself, get off on the other
Prove yourself right, wrong or other
Well aren't you just the righteous charming little one
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
It's all a bit of harmless fun taking it out on everyone
Sad and unfortunate struck first
I see you're proud of being so damn clever
But really you should know better
Consider them your entertainment

So fortunate yet so bored, so damned
So damned spoiled to the core
Out on this one, I'll call you on it
Rise to this one
Just a healthy dose of pretension
This is not really a conversation
I'd like to tie it up and give the cat your tongue

It's all a bit of harmless fun taking it out on everyone
Sad and unfortunate struck first
I see you're proud of being so damn clever
But really you should know better
Consider them your entertainment

Oh it's all a bit of harmless fun taking it out on everyone
Sad and unfortunate struck first
Oh I, I see you're proud of being so damn clever
But really you should know better
Consider your entertainment
Oh and I

16 Minutes

I can't take more in
Why are we fighting
If we've gone so wrong
Why do I still want it

If we could go back
Mend what we broke
If there's a way out
Where do I have to go

To tell you everything
I'd tell you everything
Everything
I'd tell you everything
Everything
I'd tell you everything

I've asked a million times
Tried to explain
I wonder sometimes
If you knew me anyway
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
If we could go back
Mend what we broke
If there's a way out
Where do I have to go

To tell you everything
I'd tell you everything
Everything
I'd tell you everything

If all you need is love
Did we not have enough
So complicated
By all the small stuff

If we could go back
Mend what we broke
If there's a way out
Where do I have to go

To tell you everything
I'd tell you everything
Everything
I'd tell you everything

Everything
If all you need is love
I'd tell you everything
Did we not have enough
Everything
So complicated
I'd tell you everything
By all the small stuff
Everything

If all you need is love
I'd tell you everything
Did we not have enough
Everything
So complicated
I'd tell you everything
By all the small stuff

Reach For The Bottle

Can't see the wood from the trees
When you reach for the bottle
Yeah, you reach the bottle

No answers and you can not hear
When you reach for the bottle
Yeah, you reach the bottle

No, you won't find no home in here
When you reach for the bottle
Yeah, you reach for the bottle
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
You won't live but die in tears
When you reach for the bottle
Yeah, you reach for the bottle

And you bring me to my knees
I'm here but you can't see
Some days we need some help
No shame in reaching out

Good grief man take a look around
I fear your soul's trouble
Yeah, your soul's in trouble

Man take a good look at yourself
Before you reach for the bottle
Yeah, you take to the bottle

Won't find no answers in there
When you get yourself in trouble
When you find yourself in trouble

Only see your shoes down there
At the bottom of the bottle
When you're done with the bottle

And you bring me to my knees
I'm here but you can't see
Some days we need some help
No shame in reaching out

I got the same love and I got same fears
I need a wise man to follow
Yeah, a wise man to follow

Your promises shoot away on the breeze
So I'm living cold and hollow
Yeah, I'm living cold and hollow

Puts the fear and grief into my soul
When you reach for the bottle
Yeah, you reach for the bottle

I won't live but die in tears
When I'm living the bottle
And you reach for the bottle

Well you bring me down to my knees
When you reach for the bottle
Yeah, you reach for the bottle

You won't find no home in here
When you reach for the bottle
Just a whole lot of sorrow

Can't make you choose between it and me
When you reach for the bottle
Yeah, you reach for the bottle

Ain't a choice if it's not crystal clear
When you reach for the bottle
Just a whole lot of sorrow

And you bring me to my knees
I'm here but you can't see
Some days we need some help
No shame in reaching out

Passenger Side

How am I supposed to know
How am I meant to show

Sneaky sabotage
Underhanded love
Keeps me awake at night
Keeps me in flight

Sneaky sabotage
Underhanded love
Keeps me awake
Sneaky sabotage
Underhanded love
Keeps me awake at night
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Sneaky sabotage
Underhanded love
Keeps me awake

How am I supposed to know
How am I meant to show

A wasted love on a blinded heart
One who aches for more
Makes for a lonesome love

A wasted love for a blinded heart
For one who thinks for one

What a wasted love for a blinded heart
One will ache for more
What a wasted love on a blinded heart
Makes for a lonesome love

How am I supposed to know
How am I meant to show

How much I wanted
How much I wanted you
How much I wanted
How much I loved you

Des oubliettes hasten to forget
A lighter heart takes flight
Bewitch a peaceful night
Des oubliettes hasten to forget
Leaves me at peace at night

How am I supposed to know
How am I meant to show
How am I supposed to know
How am I meant to show

Afan

I want something but I just don't know what it is
Too much to take in I'd rather be a sleep and
Come on let's get away let's get a place where the mountains meet the sea
High time and maybe you'll fall in love with me
I'd like to be somewhere where I can't count the stars at night
You could build our house and I'd be your faithful assistant
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
You can have it if you want it
We can make it if we want to
We can take it if we want it
You can have me if you want me

I need something right now, can you tell me what it is
You bring me such joy and love I can't quite believe it
It's crystal clear to me it's not hard to reason when you look at me
Daylight to candle light, well I'm so in love with you

I'd like to be somewhere where I can't count the stars at night
You could build our house and I'd be your faithful assistant

Well you can have it if you want it
We can make it if we want to
We can take it if we want to
You can have me if you want me

You can have it if you want it
We can make it if we want to
We can take it if we want to
You can have me if you want me

You can have it if you want it
We can make it if we want to
We can take it if we want to
You can have me if you want me

Cloverleaf

No doubts are left and nothing is dealt
Conclusions are drawn no attention to what's gone
Judgements snapped conversation closed
It's open and shut leaves nothing but
Borrowed insults cite wisdom of friends
The words on your breath feel cold unknown and foreign
Explanations crash for driving me spare illuminate room and clear the air

Closing the book chapter is read
Last blow comes as good as it gets
Lesson learnt hearts will repair

Closing the book chapter is read
Last blow comes as good as it gets
Lesson learnt hearts will repair

Some how you confess deception convinced deceived yourself
It wasn't only you who you fooled
Turned to a tit for tat descends into a matter not for facts
You sure fooled me too

If instincts guide was yours right all along
Now why'd you ignore ghosts of past love kept you warm
Now out of the day it passes away when tenderness has been all but spent
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Closing the book chapter is read
Last blow comes as good as it gets
Lesson learnt hearts will repair

Closing the book chapter is read
Last blow comes as good as it gets
Lesson learnt hearts will repair

Oh, oh, oh, in time
Oh, oh, oh, in time
Oh, oh, oh, in time
Oh, oh, oh, in time

Under Fire

I may not believe you or treat your worlds as gold
I may try to deceive you baby for treating me so cold
I rarely have a question they'd require me to care
And I can't bear to hear excuses they've been driving me so spare

Now I can take that I didn't mean what you meant to me
I can't take that it didn't mean a thing
But you can't take it back, can't switch it up on me
Keep it to yourself and let me be

No room for second guessing your either in or you're out
Why am I wasting precious time while you can't make up your mind
If you can't see what you had if you can't see what you've got
I got no sympathy if you can only see it when it's gone

Now I can take that I didn't mean what you meant to me
I can take that it didn't mean a thing
But you can't take it back, can't switch it up on me
Keep it to yourself and let me be
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Some silly little letters full of guilt that beg reprieve
So very analogue and thoughtful but you had your chance with me
It appears you've missed the boat she's off to sail the seven seas
She calls herself gracious under fire not your opportunity

Now I can take that I didn't mean what you meant to me
I can take that it didn't mean a thing
But you can't take it back can't switch it up on me
Keep in to yourself and let me be

Now I can take that I didn't mean what you meant to me
I can take that it didn't mean a thing
But you can't take it back can't switch it up on me
Keep in to yourself and let me be

Henbane

Some stories will never be forgotten
They'll chase you round your carelessness
Switching up till memory can't be trusted
Shadows dance through your consciousness
You got to

You got to deal with it
You got to deal with it
You got to deal with it
You got to deal with it

Switching characters oh so many
Re-inventions are so plenty
Don't recognise yourself from time to time
Question nothing without reason or rhyme
You got to

You got to deal with it
You got to deal with it
You got to deal with it
You got to deal with it

Now bring them out bring them one by one
In one straight line bring them one by one
It's up to the wall take them one by one
In one straight line bring them one by one

It's times like these you need your friends
Battles are far easier shared
Than sat on driving yourself crazy
Or we'll be casualties in the end
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
You got to deal with it
You got to deal with it
You got to deal with it
You got to deal with it

Now bring them out bring them one by one
In one straight line bring them one by one
It's up to the wall take them one by one
In one straight line bring them one by one
You got to deal with it

Limelight

Limelight blind sight caught you fight or flight
Round thirty two to fifty minutes awaits the next fool
Limelight wrong or right what will you choose
Time to shine show your wares and your attitude

It's all you got
It's all you wanted
It's all you got
It's all you wanted

Train crash addict get your picture on the front page
Ingenious manufacture and a five page exposé
Babe in the woods time to write a book
Rack up a line of nothingness a scent of insignificance
Draws you in numbs your soul are you willing to trade
Your time for greenbacks that won't ever come to warm you
Got you jumping hoops the more you get the more you need
The more you want the less you care, the less you are able to feel
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
It's all you got
It's all you wanted
It's all you got
It's all you wanted

It's all you got
It's all you wanted
It's all you got
It's all you wanted

It's a battle choose your battle something got to give
Make for the trenches before you lose it all and give in
Wear your heart on your sleeve leave it out to dry
Who would have known how good it feels to leave your neck on the line

It's all you got
It's all you wanted
It's all you got
It's all you wanted

It's all you got
It's all you wanted
It's all you got
It's all you wanted

Song For Bill

Who knows how who knows when
It's a long time to be waiting
Who knows how and who knows when
It's a long time to be dreaming

Who knows how and who knows when
It's a long time to be dreaming
Who knows how and who knows when
It's a long time

Well I found your right, and I found your wrong
Got a temper to accommodate
Well you found my right, and you found my wrong
Got a temper to temper
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
And who knows how and who knows when
It's a long time to be waiting
And who and who knows how and who knows when
It's a long time to be waiting
And who

And if there is an answer, an answer to hand
Surprise me, surprise me, oh
We're due another crash about now, about now

And who knows when
Who knows how and who knows when
You got a lot on your mind
And who knows then

Who knows how and who knows then
You got a lot on your mind
Who knows then

Such a simple thing be straight with me
'Cause you're oh so bad and hiding how you feel
And your eyes run away but the sorrow stays
There's only so much I can handle

So who knows how and who knows when
It's a long time to be dreaming
And who, and who knows how and who knows when
You got a lot on your mind
So who knows then
Who knows how and who knows when
You got a lot on your mind
So who knows then

Longer Days, Longer Nights

Longer days, longer nights when the day draws you away
What I feel doesn't make any sense as the order of the day calls
Fear dissipates first light on your skin and you wake and the new race begins
Light of lessons from yesterday illuminate or sting
Bare and build on what yesterday was good enough to bring
And I'm curious to know how far it will go and how far it can take us

Longer days, longer nights when the day draws you away
When every fibre aches for you to come home
And it's not that I fear I don't I fear to be alone
I just revel and reveal that you too call this home
Never really far away you know I feel it
I feel you, I can be anywhere and your arms come out of nowhere
They keep me warm, they keep me company, your arms well they keep me strong
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Longer days, longer nights when the day slips away
The one you didn't want to end and memory begins to play
Inside your mind, it's the little things that make us
We never thought would matter or accumulate you and I
And pleasures we can look back upon
Well I don't care if I drown don't care what is to come

Non Albums Tracks

Don't let them push you around

She was just a little difficult
A little bit strange
Trying to understand
Blend, be the same
As the rest of the girls in the park
She pretends she shields her heart
Against the slaying of young girls such tender hearts

She said
Don't let them push you around

From there she learnt less and less
Confused by the words that had been spent
She was spinning she lost control
Only saved when she hit the ground
Until this day she hears the dizzy words
She'll never forget

She said
Don't let them push you around

From here she learnt all that she could
Realised it was not just her way but her fate
Head high she deserved this life
Stand tall and walk with pride
That she'll do more than just survive
With her own strong mind

Toxic

( Britney Spears cover / Recorded live for Arte )

Too high
Can't come down
It's in the air
And it's all around
Can you feel me now

With a taste of your lips
I'm on a ride
You're toxic
I'm slipping under
With a taste of poison paradise
I'm addicted to you
Don't you know that you're toxic
And I love what you do
Don't you know that you're toxic
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
It's getting late
To give you up
I took a sip
From my devil's cup
Slowly it's taking over me

I can't escape
And I can't wait
I need a hit
Baby, give me it
You're dangerous
I'm loving it

Too high
Can't come down
It's in the air
And it's all around
Can you feel me now

With a taste of your lips
I'm on a ride
You're toxic
I'm slipping under
With a taste of poison paradise
I'm addicted to you
Don't you know that you're toxic
And I love what you do
Don't you know that you're toxic

Intoxicate me now
With your lovin' now
I think I'm ready now
I think I'm ready now

Intoxicate me now
With your lovin' now
I think I'm ready now
I think I'm ready now

Intoxicate me now
With your lovin' now
I think I'm ready now
I think I'm ready now

Intoxicate me now
With your lovin' now
I think I'm ready now
I think I'm ready now
