EMERALD CITY 
Back in the city again
Like a fish caught on a thread
Tumble and twist all the night
Too much in my head

Playing it over and over
Goddamn ache in my shoulder
Finally sleep takes the wheel
But then the story just gets wilder

August heat settled in
Breaking my will, I stay in
Drowning in wet head and din
Back in the city again

Brew up some tea, give me energy
Something to cure this lethargy
And dreams that keep roping me 
Back to the city again

Suddenly waking at night
Before even the first light
Is this the right way to go?
How long can we live in this limbo 

All of this energy 
I need to move and let it run free
Instead of turning my days inside out

Mmm
Back in the city again
Like a fish caught on a thread 
Tumble and twist all the night
Too much in my head

Playing it over and over
Goddamn ache in my shoulder
Finally sleep takes the wheel
But then the story just gets wilder

I won’t let this pull me under
I won’t let you pull me under
Like Dorothy on the run
Like Dorothy on the run

All of this energy 
I need to move and let it run free
Instead of turning my days inside out

I won’t let this pull me under
I won’t let you pull me under
Like Dorothy on the run
Like Dorothy on the run

August heat settled in
Breaking my will, I stay in
Drowning in wet head and din
Back in the city again

Brew up some tea, give me energy

Something to cure this lethargy

And dreams that keep roping me Back to the city again

 

ALL THE PRETTY SCENERY

It’s so easy now to wake up and distract your dissatisfaction in all the noise and calculations geared to render you mad with indignation

What of your imagination? 

The space you welcome the day in with 
Would you surrender up so easily if I come around saying I’m gonna steal all of your scenery?
All the pretty scenery 
All the pretty scenery

What are you paying attention to
What’d you give your best to hours to
If your head was a garden what would it grow?

Do you tend or do you take salvation?
Some booze, remove, get you some adulation
Work of merit, importance or fun, something’s got you on the run from your own thing
Do you lack or have you got your own thing?

All the pretty scenery

Could we tune into a good news station?
Overdue some kinda vacation
Looking for a positive permutation

Here it comes now our destination gaining on us all
so beautiful it’s devastating 

Here it comes now our destination gaining on us all
so beautiful it’s devastating

Here it comes now our destination gaining on us all
so beautiful it’s devastating

All the pretty scenery
All the pretty scenery 

DREAMING 
I’ve been dreaming and it’s all taking shape in my mind
Blue water and sunshine
I was hoping that a real good time would be 
Just ahead for you and me
I’ve been dreaming and it’s all taking shape in my mindDrumming with your fingers
Table-top rhythms 
You said I could write 
What would I say to brighten 

Up the light in her eyes? 
Who designed this anyhow? 

I’ve been dreaming and it’s all taking shape in my mind
Got to get your eye in lineI was hoping

that a really good time would be 
Just ahead for you and me 
Just ahead for you and me 
Just ahead for you and me 

Just ahead for you and me

Just ahead for you and me

HEY HEY 
We had a good chat this A.M.
I’d been a bit down overnight 
My man made a good call 
Damn you know his brains are dynamite
Hey Hey, I got the ticket alright 
Hey Hey … alright 

Sounds of the trucks and cars keep
Rolling their way into my notebook
Turn that trouble upside-down
Now you see how pretty it looks

Hey Hey, I got the ticket alright 
Hey Hey … alright
Hey Hey … alright 

I know I can do more
Just gotta keep my mind on the job
Pay less heed to the noise outside 
Or in my head

Oh yeah my lover
Don’t you even think of it
Or waste another precious second of your time on that half-wit

Hey Hey, I got the ticket alright 
Hey Hey … alright
Hey Hey, I got the ticket alright 
Hey Hey … alright
Hey Hey … alright

WEATHERBIRDS 
We’re back, your weather birds
Sun chasers, rain makers
We’re back, your weather birds
Here to tell you all about this time around 
 The first time we met him 
I thought he was just some loud grotty rock’n’roller livin’ on
It’s funny how we can get each other so very wrong

We’re back, your weather birds
Sun chasers, rain makers
We’re back, your weather birds
Here to tell you all about this time around

I got a letter from this bright young thing at home 
She gets so very hard on herself 

Oh it’s funny how the real battle is the one we have with ourselves We’re back, your weather birds

Sun chasers, rain makers

We’re back, your weather birds

Here to tell you all about this time around

Walking down Main Street on my own

I felt a wave of something rush through my mind

Accepting all that’s been and who I’ve become 

No-one else can know or take away what

you have found It’s time to come home 

Yeah we’re strong, but won’t you please look after us some

Yeah we’re strong, but won’t you please look after us some

 

GENTLE STEED
My gentle steed, let me dress your head
My dear friend, lets ride out there
Where we can see the distances

She’ll stop if I start to fall
She’ll stop if I start to fall
My gentle steed

Who knows where this path will lead
I grip the reigns hard but tenderly 
The new wind in our hair 

She keeps her head up graceful and tall
She keeps her head up graceful and tall

My galant steed
My galant steed

SPIDER
A spider came in, so there must be rain coming soon
The kiss of a breeze, kicks up the leaves, in it’s wake 
If you want to return to my side, anytime
I’ll be here, it’s true, just so long as you are kind

Like summer rain
And a welcome change
Like summer when it rains
It’s a welcome change

OUT BEYOND
Out beyond where the sun knows no time 
Out beyond where the sun knows no time 

There is no sound
That’s quiet enough to hear
There is no heartbeat
But you find you are here 

Out beyond where the sun knows no time 
Out beyond where the sun knows no time 

Aloneness makes no sense anymore
Unity doesn’t need to be found

There is no sound
That’s quiet enough to hear
There is no heartbeat

But you find you are here 

Out beyond where the sun knows no time 
Out beyond where the sun knows no time 

THE SCREW UPS (PT. I)        
And the screw ups, the wandering wanderers
One day it hits and the spell is cured
One day we find a way to give
The way to unwind
All that builds up in our minds
It’s a chance to rejoice
It’s a chance to find

The shape of what’s hopeless, the form of the unfound
Dream, like you’re unbound
And live, while you’re around

The shape of what’s hopeless, the form of the unfound
Dream, like you’re unbound
And live, while you’re around

DAYDREAM (PT. II)
Daydream, myself back across the sea
So far, yet I feel you so near
Daydream, myself back across the sea
So far, yet I feel you so near to me

’Til then I’ll be, ’til then I’ll be in my..
Daydream, myself back across the sea
So far, yet I feel you so near
Daydream, myself back across the sea
So far, yet I feel you so near 

Daydream, myself back across the sea
So far, yet I feel you so near
