Track Name: Mercy
Man I’m feeling really strung out, I’m climbing the walls
I think she’s really going to kill me she’s had no sleep at all
The way she's looking at me it really wouldn’t be a surprise
I think she’s going to do it this time and she’d be justified

I’m going to keep out of the kitchen, lock away the knives
I’m running out of reasons for her to want me alive

And I think it’d be a mercy and no sacrifice
Give a little bit of mercy get some peace in her life
And I think it’d be a mercy and no sacrifice
Give a little bit of mercy get a little peace in her life

A little bit of medication, a little taste for tonight
This time with a little dedication and a little bit of vice
I’m feeling like a hero but I’m a pain in the arse
She should be kicking in the windows sticking my head through the glass

I never measure when I’m taking, I take what I touch
I’ll take whatever she can give me even if she gives me too much

And I think it’d be a mercy and no sacrifice
Give a little bit of mercy get some peace in her life
And I think it’d be a mercy and no sacrifice
Give a little bit of mercy get a little peace in her life

Oh when she looks at me now
There’s a murderous intention but it isn't freaking me out
I’ll never need to worry that I’m everybody’s fool
Never need to feel guilty about the times I’ve been cruel

She’ll kill me

And I’ll get a little mercy
A little mercy
I won’t ever feel better if I get a little mercy
A little mercy
Track Name: Tonya Harding
I know I'm not like you
Nobody ever wanted me at the first sight of me
No-one chased after me
And looked in my eyes saw the fire they'd kindled inside

They always followed the shining stars
That pin-lighted your eyes
Left standing in embers I watched them pass
And with a hot, hot light burned their backs

If they could feel anything, could feel anything
Wishing never meant that they would
If they could feel any pain but longing for you again
Wishing never meant that they would

Although I'm not like you
It may be just as equally true
I want the same things as you
I don't shine with a power that's mine on a whim

The magic light makes them flutter near
That certain something that's drawing them under your spell
While me and all of the others here
Fade and disappear

If they could see anything, but you anything
Wishing never meant that they would
And all the others here didn't disappear
Wishing never meant that they would

Your light
Is drowning me out
So burn out
And give me a million chances to shine

I want everything
Give me everything
Wishing never meant that they would
I would do anything
If they'd give me everything
Wishing never meant that they should

But I wish that they would
How I wish that they would
And I wish that they would
How I wish that they would, wish that they would
Track Name: Don't Cry
Don’t look at me with those anguished eyes
It’s not so bad that you have to cry
Sure things are heading through the outhouse door
But there’s paper plenty and water for
To wash it all away

You breathe out with a shudder and a sigh
But still it isn’t time to cry
So the horse has gone and the stable door is broke
But there’s still decent thoughts in the eyes of some folk
So let it lay

Don’t cry
Don’t cry

You ask so many questions but you don’t ask why
I’ll slap you if you really want to cry
Or stick the TV on to “Inconceivable” or “Up”
Or the news for how today’s all messed up
But that’s not the way

Don’t cry
Don’t cry

Don’t cry
Don’t cry

Don’t cry
Don’t cry
Don’t cry
Don’t cry
Track Name: Drinking In The Fast Lane
I was drinking in the fast lane
Ran out of curses I could say
I couldn't drive the way I wanted
Too many piggies in my way

I passed a hundred miles of road kill
Badgers, bunnies, birds and deer
And some they looked like they were sleeping
And some it really wasn't clear

I was speeding in a snow storm
Through everybody crawling scared
I was running to a different clock
While proper charlies sniffed and stared

I was crashing in the same car
That I thought I'd written off
When you're hanging from the ceiling
You never know how far you'll drop

We were kissing on the slip road
I don't believe she cared for me
She pushed the button on my seat belt
She wouldn't set her body free
Track Name: Somewhen
The day I understand you
Somewhen, it’s coming
I will understand you
Somewhen, somewhere, somehow

And on that day you’ll be an open book
I’ll read you from cover to cover
Applaud your literary endeavour
And I will keep on reading - until

The day I understand you
Somewhen, it’s coming
I will understand you
Somewhen, somewhere, somehow

And on that day I’ll know where you’re at
I’ll know it all without being clever
Nod my head and say, yeah, whatever
I will open up my inner eye - until

The day I understand you
Somewhen, it’s coming
I will understand you
Somewhen, somewhere, somehow

But it might take a little while
It might take all of December
Or more years than we have together
I’ll be hanging on your every word - until

The day I understand you
Somewhen, it’s coming
I will understand you
Somewhen, somewhere, somehow

The day I understand you
Somewhen, it’s coming
I will understand you
Somewhen, somewhere, somehow

And on that day I’ll be by your side
No matter where, how or whenever
Right here or in the forever
I’ll find you on your little cloud
With your beautiful wings
And the promise of a thousand things
Somewhen
Track Name: Here Comes The Flood
Hey hey where have you been
Should've been looking at your screen
Have you seen the weather? Can you see?
The wind is blowing through the trees
Sounds like the breaking seas
Can you feel the weather? Can you feel?

Would I tell you? Would I warn you
When the waters broke free?

I have seen the trees fall down
How I wish the wind died down
Can you tell me whether we'll sink or swim?
I heard a preacher man today
“Here comes the end” he say
“Here comes the water to wash away your sin”.

Would I tell you? Would I warn you
When the prophet said to me
“Here comes The Flood”?

Children whimper through their tears
“Daddy we all float down here!
Save me from the weather
Keep me from the clown”
Papers point to put the blame
Weathermen hang their heads in shame
Well did you ever believe in what they said?

Would I tell you? Would I warn you
Would you be listening to me?
Here comes The Flood

When you've just dried out from the last
You were beginning to feel OK
And you'd got down from your Ark
Now you're losing two by two
The dreams you thought came true
Here comes IT
Here comes The Flood
Here comes The Flood
Here it comes
Track Name: Go To Sleep
Somewhere over the rainclouds you’ll go
Any dream that you dream you won’t know
That’s why Eva and Judy were wrong
Nothing’s left for the storm to take you from

Go to sleep and you’re gone
No red shoes to bring you home

Waiting for your eyes to close
For the spark to be gone I suppose
Like the Scarecrow without any straw
You’ve nothing to hold it together for

Go to sleep and you’re gone
Oh when will this restlessness be done?

Are you looking out?
I am by your side
Are you holding on?
I won’t sleep tonight
Clouds won’t leave your eyes
Nothing left inside
I am by your side
I won’t sleep tonight

Go to sleep, go to sleep
Go to sleep, go to sleep

Somewhere over the rainclouds you’ll go
Who’ll be singing this song when you go?
Not the Lion without any roar
And just who is the Tin Man crying for

Go to sleep and you’re gone
No more singer, no more song
Go to sleep and you’re gone
No red shoes will bring you home
Track Name: Shame
What’s it all about now?
I heard an old man say
They don’t make things like they used to
It all gets thrown away
You give all you’ve got
They’re wanting more
Give them what they want
Or your arse hits the door
You want to, you try to
But never make it stick
It’s a shame
Things will never be the same

What’s it all about now?
I heard a young girl say
It might not be the things you’re used to
But you’ll never fade away
So you give all you’ve got
But they’re wanting more
Give all you’ve got
Or your arse hits the door
So you break it back down
And try it again
It’s a shame
Things will never be the same

What’s it all about now?
What’s that I hear you say?
It’s not like the things you’re used to
Nothing goes your way
You give all you’ve got
They’re wanting more
Give them what they want
Or your arse hits the door
It’s one or it’s two or it’s three or it’s four
I’m not sure
Things will ever be the same
