Boogie Down The Corridor

YOU CAN SEE WHERE THE LIGHTS ARE ON

YOU CAN SEE WHERE THE LIGHTS ARE OFF

SO YOU KNOW WHERE THE PEOPLE ARE

DO YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENS THERE?

 

THERE’S A CLOUD WITH A MAGNET ON

IT’S A GATE AND WE CALL IT MOON

IF YOU’RE IN TOO MUCH TOO SOON

THEN YOU MAY GET WORSE THAN GONE

 

LOOK NOW NOW LOOK YOU’RE STIFF

THERE’S A LOTTA WORK TO DO

ALL WHAT YOU’VE DONE AND SAID

WHAT’S BURIED IN YOUR HEAD

 

ONE DANCE YOU STILL CAN DO

IS ALONG A CORRIDOR

IF YOU CANNOT BREAK ON THROUGH

START TO COUNT ONE TWO THREE FOUR

 

  BOOGIE DOWN THE CORRIDOR   BOOGIE DOWN THE CORRIDOR…

Don't Blame The Weather

STOP LOOK AROUND THE CLOUDS ARE FORMING

WE ARE CHOSEN NOW

SOMETHING DOWN HERE NEEDS A REFINING

WE DON’T FEEL THE WOW

 

  PLEASE DON’T CRY

  NATURE HAS WORK TO DO

  THANK THE SKY

  WAITING TO BE WITH YOU

 

SUN WILL BE BACK AS SOON’S IT HAS TO

WE ARE CHOSEN NOW

DON'T BLAME THE WEATHER JUST AS THEY DO

THEY DON'T FEEL THE WOW

 

  PLEASE DON’T...

 

SCARED BY THE THUNDER AND THE LIGHTNING

WE ARE CHOSEN NOW

AND WHEN IT'S PASSED YOU'LL HEAR YOUR HEART SING

YES WE FEEL THE WOW

 

  PLEASE DON’T...

Evermore

BLOOD ON THE HIGHSTREET   ROW A BOAT

ONLY YOU CAN DO BUT SWIM OR FLOAT

SWIM TO THE HARBOR   THATS YOUR WIFE

FOOD IN THE CORNER   FUNNY LIFE

 

  THIS HOUSE IS NOT A HOME   THIS HOUSE IS NOT A HOME

  I FOUND OUT  

  EVERMORE   I WOULDN’T TAKE THIS ONE OUT  

  EVERMORE   I WOULDN’T TAKE THIS ONE OUT

 

POLARBEARS AND LITTLE BEARS

LONELY SNAKES   THE WOLF’S AWAKE

HOLD ON A SECOND

GRIZZLYBEARS AND LITTLE FISH

 

  THIS WORLD IS NOT A HOME   THIS WORLD IS NOT A HOME

  EVERMORE   I COULDN’T BRING THIS ONE OUT

  EVERMORE   I COULDN’T SORT THIS ONE OUT

Ghost Voice

KILL THE SCHOOL-RELIGION NOW

ARREST YOURSELF AND FEEL THE HOW

YOU DON'T REALLY HAVE TO KNOW

DO OPEN UP AND LET IT FLOW

 

SCIENCE TV RADIO LIE

WATCH THE SQUIRREL WATCH THE SKY

IN THE END WHAT REALLY STAYS?

SHUT YOUR EARS AND COUNT YOUR DAYS

 

  I HEAR A GHOST VOICE      I HEAR A GHOST VOICE

 

SUMMON UP THE ANGELS TWELVE

GATHER IN THE HOUSE OF LAW

MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO DO

SHUT YOUR MOUTH AND FIND YOUR WAY

 

  I HEAR...

 

    I’M GETTIN’ UP NOW

    I’M GETTIN’ DOWN

 

  I HEAR...

Porcupines

WHAT’S THE HUNG UP   WHAT’S THE CHARGE

ANYTHING FOR YOU

WHAT’S THE HICKUP   SMALL OR LARGE

ANYTHING FOR YOU

MISSING OLD DAYS   HORSES AND PRIDE

ANYTHING FOR YOU

WATCH THE X-RAYS   UFO’S GLIDE

ANYTHING FOR YOU

TOUGH TIMES   SOUR GRAPES

O WHAT A JOKE THIS IS

 

  I FOUND MYSELF IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET

  WHERE THE PORCUPINES SEEMED TO CLONE

  I WAS TOO OCCUPIED STANDING ON MY FEET

  WHEN MY HEAD GOT HIT BY A STONE

Sexy Bostok

DAYS ON EARTH AND NIGHTS IN SPACE

THE HEART OF DREAMS I TRACE

LISTENING TO THE SILENT WIND

YOU HAVE GIVEN ME THE TOUCH

SO STAY NOW PLEASE DONT GO

 

  SEXY BOSTOK   SEXY BOSTOK

That's Why I Hit You When I'm Wrong

ONCE THERE WERE HALOS   THE PLANET WAS ONE

BUT FAIRIES GOT BURIED   AS BUSINESS WAS RUN

LOOK AT ME JOKING   LOOK AT ME NOW

I DON'T TRY TO MAKE UP   THE FISH NOR THE CROW

 

  THAT'S WHY I HIT YOU WHEN I'M WRONG

  THAT'S WHY I HIT YOU WHEN I'M WRONG

 

    ONE BY ONE BEING HURT

    BY THE CROSSES THEY'D HAD TO CARRY

    AND BECOMING TWO AND TWO

    THEN THE FEAR SHOWS UP IN YOU

    LOVE IS POWERFUL AND RARE

    SO JUST DON'T STAND THERE AND STARE

 

GIVE ME YOUR VISIONS   GIVE ME YOUR SELF

DON'T HAND ME YOUR BRAINWORK                                             

THE BOOKS ON YOUR SHELF

AND JUST AS YOU'RE LIVING   THE TRUTH IS ALIVE

NOW LIGHTEN YOUR OWN TORCH   GET INSIDE AND DIVE

 

  THAT'S WHY I HIT YOU WHEN I'M RIGHT

  THAT'S WHY I HIT YOU WHEN I'M RIGHT

  THAT'S WHY I HIT YOU WHEN I'M WRONG

  THAT'S WHY I HIT YOU WHEN I'M WRONG

Touch The Sky

JILL HAS BECOME SOMEONE’S SECOND WIFE

SHE IS A PART OF HER NEW MAN’S LIFE

FINDING HERSELF ALONE ONE DAY

DID SHE EVER TRY TO

 

  TOUCH THE SKY   TOUCH THE SKY…

 

JOHN HAD A LIFE AND WAS MADE AN OFFER

STAND BY ME AND YOU’LL BE MUCH SAFER

SHE WAS YOUNG AND SO FULL OF HOPE

HE THOUGHT SHE COULD MAKE HIM

 

  TOUCH THE…

 

    JOHN HE HAS JOINED THE ELECTRICAL CIRCUITS

    HE NEVER PAID FOR INITIAL SUBSCRIPTION

    LOOK AT THE NEON LOOK AT THE BEAMS

    NOW HE CAN’T HIDE HE HAS LOST ALL HIS DREAMS

 

      THERE’S A SIGN   THERE’S A MARK

      THERE’S A SIGN   THERE’S A MARK

 

        IS THIS WHERE THE ANGELS PARK

        WHEN THE WINGS HAVE FALLEN OFF?

        IS HERE WHERE THE ANGELS SING

        TO RECALL HOW THEY ONCE DID SPARK?

Wrecks

SHIPS ALL SET SAIL AT THE BREAK OF THE DAWN

NEVER EVER TO RETURN

EVERYBODY KNEW   THEY WERE BLACK IN THEIR SOULS               

WHY WOULD THEY NEVER CARE TO LEARN ?

 

IT STARTED WITH A RUMOUR OF A WAR FAR AWAY

THIS IS NOT OUR BUSINESS PEOPLE THOUGHT

THEN CAME THE MESSAGE THE CHURCHBELLS RANG LOUD

O   HOW THE KING WOULD MAKE THEM PROUD

 

  EVERYBODY KNEW

  EVERYBODY KNEW IT WAS WRONG

  WHY COULDN'T ANYBODY STAND UP AND SAY   WRECKS ?

  THEY HAD BECOME WRECKS

 

BANNERS BEING MADE BY THE WOMEN IN THE TOWN

EVERYONE FORGOT THEY HAD A LIFE

SECOND TIME NOW ALL THE CHURCH BELLS CRIED DEATH !

BANNERS AND A BLOOD SIGN AND A KNIFE

 

    EVERYBODY KNEW

    EVERYBODY KNEW IT WAS WRONG

    THEY DIDN'T NEED NO SHIPS TO GET WRECKS

    THEY ALL HAD BECOME WRECKS
