about

2007 Album, originally included a cover of Randy Newman's 'Short People' which cannot be included on this site. At the time I think I was getting into Piano playing a lot more, so this album is a bit lighter on the guitar work, (although there are still some nice bits, just fewer solos). My favourite song is 'I'm Coming Home'.

Track Name: I'm Happy
The Sun is shining in the sky
Lifting the mood that's no lie
Taking a weight off my shoulders again
Haven't felt like this since I don't know when
You can keep the acid comments and sheath the fangs
It's just the way that my face hangs
'Cos you wouldn't know it but I'm happy again
Stay the hell away from me 'cos I'm happy
Stay the hell away from me

There's a chemical imbalance in my Brain
Don't know the reason but don't complain
I'm feeling pretty manic if truth be told
It makes a change from feeling sad and old
If I could put it in a bottle I'd make a mint
For now it doesn't matter if I'm skint
You wouldn't know it but I'm happy again
Stay the hell away from me 'cos I'm happy
Stay the hell away from me

Don't bring my mood down

Don't bring my mood down
I don't want you hanging around
I don't wanna go right off the rails
Barking like a Dog that's got two tails
I don't wanna let this fade away
I don't wanna jinx this so I say
Get the hell get the hell away from me
You're bringing me down can't you see?
Get the hell away from me 'cos I'm happy
Track Name: Three Missing Words
I have driven you home tonight through the pouring rain
Your hair and eyes were shining bright like you were seventeen again
You and I know there were things unsaid
As the wheels of my car turned
But I can't bring myself to say those three missing words

You turned to me as if to speak but the words died on your lips
Instead you made as if to reach for my face with your fingertips
And you and I stole a farewell kiss as the engine gently purred
I couldn't bring myself to say those three missing words

They's be so easy to say to a woman like you
But there's too much at stake
And I can't take them back, even if I wanted to

So I'm looking at your coffee cup with the slightest trace of lipstick
Thinking words can really screw you up like a two bit fairground mystic
As you and I spend this night apart inside our separate worlds
I wonder if I'll ever say those three missing words
Track Name: The Unkindest Cut Of All
God only knows I tried, all my love was unconfined
Boundaries ill-defined and now I'm all alone
No-one learns from good advice
Thinking better is thinking twice
Keeping it short and so concise will cut you to the bone
It will cut you to the bone, the unkindest cut of all

Ever so full of pride, kidding myself I tried
I was the one who cried and now I'm all alone
Standing proud I took a fall
Thought I was someone now I'm small
Now I need someone to call
Been cut right to the bone
It will cut you to the bone, the unkindest cut of all

You can bandage an open wound, its obvious all too soon
To everyone in the room that you are all alone
Take it as read from me my friend
Having a good time it will end
Love is a spiral twist and tends to cut you to the bone
It will cut you to the bone, the unkindest cut of all
Track Name: Take the Train
She's not the prettiest woman in my life
But I'm a lone and lonely with no fun in sight
Looking for some loving and some Turkish Delight
She is available for me tonight
All there is between us is 40 miles of wire and Steel
It won't take much to make her feel the way I feel

You won't call it love and I won't cause you pain
So come on baby take the train
You won't call it love and I won't cause you pain
So come on baby take the train

There's nothing wrong with her that I can tell
But not a chance of falling under her spell
With no good looks that she can trade or sell
There's one thing that she does so well
All there is between us is some railway track and gravel
It won't take much to convince this girl to travel

You won't call it love and I won't cause you pain
So come on baby take the train
You won't call it love and I won't cause you pain
So come on baby take the train

I won't cause you pain so take the train
I won't cause you pain so come on baby take the train
Take the train

You won't call it love and I won't cause you pain
So come on baby take the train
You won't call it love and I won't cause you pain
So come on baby take the train

Don't need no woman trouble at this time
Just need a honey-child to treat me fine
And if the cards fall tonight she'll be mine
All it takes is a ticket and a railroad line

If you won't call it love and I won't cause you pain
So come on baby take the train
You won't call it love and I won't cause you pain
So come on baby take the train
Take the train, come on now
Track Name: You Could Fly
Don't you sometimes wish that you could fly?
Just push out your tongue and taste the sky
It beats all those dreams of falling down the stairs
Or running through streets in your underwear
Don't you sometimes wish you could really fly?

I wake in the morning I'm so confused
i don't know where I've been my body's bruised
Suddenly my heart skips a beat
That sweet dream's just come back to me.
Don't you sometimes wish you could really fly?

If I could I would fly to be with you
I would circle your house to show what I could do
I would persuade you that you could do it too
Then we'd fly away together with the sky in reach forever
Track Name: I'm Coming Home
Yesterday I wrote a letter to my family
I can't post it 'cos I'm far out at sea
I put it in a bottle and cast it to the waves
In case I end up in a watery grave

This ship has been becalmed on an ocean that is wide
There's no going forward with only current and tide
But when our sails feel the breath of a South wind blow
I tell you, I'm coming home

We're killing time together carving trinkets we can sell
From a piece of driftwood and a Sea-Turtle's shell
The Captain has a squeeze-box and a thousand Sailors songs
To keep our spirits up we all sing along

This ship has been becalmed on an ocean that is wide
There's no going forward with only current and tide
But when our sails feel the breath of a South wind blow
I tell you, I'm coming home
I tell you, I'm coming home, coming home.

I've seen the flying fishes fly
From the ocean to the open sky
Were I they I'd fly away and leave this ship behind.

Occasional breezes rattle rope and flutter flag
Lifting up our hopes and our spirits that sag
We raise a sail and we're under way again
We make a couple of knots toward the Spanish Main

This ship has been becalmed on an ocean that is wide
There's no going forward with only current and tide
But when our sails feel the breath of a South wind blow
I tell you, I'm coming home
Track Name: Teflon Kid
Don't matter what you saw
They're all vagabonds and whores
Known as the press corps
Executive privilige

They've seen it all on vid
But he can keep it hid
A can of worms with a lid
They call him the 'Teflon Kid'

A walk between the raindrops
Weathers storms out of tea-cups
Owns the courts and owns the cops
Don't matter what he did

Keep a clean reputation
All across the nation
Whatever the occasion
They call him the 'Teflon Kid'

Call him the Teflon Kid

Where you think you're going?
You got no way of knowing
The rumours keep on growing
Bet there's never a slip or skid

Everything deniable
Watertight reliable
Nothing ever Triable
They call him the Teflon Kid

Call him the Teflon Kid
Teflon, Teflon, Teflon, Teflon
Track Name: Drunk On Lensfield Road
I got nothing in my pockets but holes and fluff
Staggering round these streets cos I had enough
Like some burned out no-good Grifter when they called my bluff
Making my way back to you

This time of the night (or morning) there's nothing to do
Not a Taxi to be seen, couldn't pay him a Penny or a Sou
I take a leak beside a fence, cos I got to
Praying you'll tell me when I get home that we're not through

Taking it slow...
Just another drunk on Lensfield Road
One foot in front of the other and I'll get home
Somehow...

I remember laying on my back but not how I fell down
Face up to the pouring rain, Jesus took pity I didn't drown
I made it to my feet 'fore the cops came round
(Their place 'aint so far from here)

Made my way past store fronts and stone faced walls
And angry looking guys who didn't seem to have the balls
To turn over this drunken bum who didn't have nothing at all
Nothing at all worth taking - not even his dignity

Taking it slow...
Just another drunk on Lensfield Road
One foot in front of the other and I'll get home
I'll get home...I'll get home somehow
Track Name: Second Amendment
(Spoken) There are 296 Million people living in America and more than 220 Million Guns. In 1997 there were 10,369 gun related murders. Fathers, Mothers, Sisters, Brothers. Many Americans opposed the Brady Bill gun legislation on the grounds that they did not think they should have to wait 5 working days for approval to buy an assault rifle or a handgun....

God Bless America
Land of the free
God help anyone
Try to take my gun from me

I can have a machine gun
Says so in the constitution
As approved by Thomas Jefferson
If he could I know he would

God Bless America
God Bless America
God Bless America
Land that I love
Stand beside her and guide her
With the light of the stars above

(Spoken) Thomas Jefferson wrote in 1785 'Gun use gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball and others of that nature are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks.'
A lot of Americans go along with that. It kind of explains a few things

I can have a handgun
Says so in the constitution
As approved by Thomas Jefferson
If he could I know he would

From the mountains
To the prairies
To the ocean white with foam
God Bless America
With gun and ammo in every home

God Bless America
God Bless America
God Bless America

God Bless America
Land of the free
Free to load to aim and fire
In the name of Liberty

Huh!

God Bless America
God Bless America
God Bless America
God Bless America
Track Name: Conspiracy Theory
We are the men who sit in darkened rooms
Behind closed doors in cigar smoke and gloom
Call us 'the Illuminati', call us the 'New World Order'

We are the men behind all world events
Controlling your daily life and government
What we decree gets done or lives get shorter

Ah! We changed the weather, you'll notice it soon
We faked the Mona Lisa and landings on the moon
We got rid of Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe
We got a secret zoo with Dinosaurs, a Unicorn and a Dodo

We are rich and strong and silent types
Avoiding publicity like a Vampire the light
(There's a few of those round here, a Werewolf and a Yeti)

Oh Aliens are on the Earth but you'd never know
They've got Glen Miller and Elvis and they're stealin' the show
They got Amy Johnson, Flight 51, nylons and beer a-plenty

Oh we rigg elections with relative ease
Kick-starting earthquakes and mad cow disease
We kept Jack the Ripper out of jail a few times
We got the Holy Grail somewhere round here...
...Stained with the blood of Christ

Oh we love David Icke, cos he's really one of us
A Prince of misdirection always making a fuss
Cos truth is stranger than fiction that's what you don't perceive
You're all just little puppets - WE will tell you what to believe
