Track Name: Blue Melody
a floating leaf finds rest on water
calm unrippled
a nostril's kiss on pollen lips
take a whiff of life alone
life alone

is this the smell of blue melody
another lavender goodbye
is this the way things are meant to be
gone in the twinkle of an eye

tiger prowling smells a flower
in the forest
hand and eye and hollow mouth
make no promise

this is the smell of blue melody
another lavender goodbye
is this the way things are meant to be
gone in the twinkle of an eye
Track Name: Genie's Song
a back room in Arcadia
they tied you to your potty chair
scratch and claw and paw and spit
no words or dreams in prison crib

but Genie got away
and Genie learnt to say

daddy blew his brains away
'cos daddy couldn't live in shame
a bunny rabbit learnt to walk
then words and dreams began to form

Genie got away
and Genie learnt to say
"I like hear music ice-cream truck"
how many side's a circle got

time went by and money lost
they hit you when you threw it up
held tongue in feral animal
still thinking on the inside in

but Genie's locked away
just like the early days
but Genie got away
and Genie learnt to say
Track Name: Venus and Mars
i came from Venus i came from Mars
i don't have a penis i have a mask
when i crash landed i couldn't see
i looked at people and they looked at me

what did they see
what did they fear

i learnt your language i learnt your rules
i like going drinking i like playing pool
chased some of your women oh they did chase me
what was i thinking living your dream

what did i see
what did i fear
what do you see
what you fear

i went to a party chewing on weeds
we laughed at them creatures proud misery
i spoke to the things that they couldn't see
little sea creatures up in the trees

what do you see
what do you fear
what do you see
what do you fear
Track Name: Pine Trees in Me
pine tree climbing my soul and my arm
no one sees
how did this happen how did that shell find me

go walking sometimes you don't know
where you'll go
where you going to

people fall into each other's arms
with burning ears
and still don't know

one thing now
before i dive into the sea
do you see the pine trees in me

iron lighthouse and a serpent of light
as balance slides
we held arms out wide carried water from high
in crab's old eyes

sea people leave the city behind
and let minds flow like tide
rabbits climb to a rising moon with burning ears
and still don't know

one thing now
before i dive into the sea
do you see the pine trees in me

pine tree climbing my soul and my arm
no one sees
how did this happen how did that shell find me

go walking sometimes you don't know
where you'll go
where you going to

people fall into each other's arms
with burning ears
and still don't know
Track Name: Words (on the Riverbank)
did you kill that man on the riverbank
did you kill that man
in the pouring rain on the riverbank
did you kill that man

'cos people they been talkin'
and people say your name
that you killed a man

i won't answer questions on the riverbank
i won't say no words
if you've got some evidence then drag me in
but i won't say no words

i know people they been talkin'
and people say my name
that i killed a man
Track Name: Back to Life
i found it hard to say goodbye
i was gone but now i'm back to life
i left a window open wide
i watched the sun go down
colours die

thunder river falling rain
a drop of sky a passing train
i left it all behind i came back to life
back to life back to life
mind was gone but now i'm right as rain
no lie

i found it hard to tell you why
i want to spread my wings and fly away
i left a piece of me in you
i watched the sun go down
colours die

thunder river falling rain
a drop of sky a passing train
i left it all behind i came back to life
back to life back to life
my mind was gone but now i'm right as rain

no

lie...
Track Name: Tiger Cub
twenty nine seafood fine
coconut shy at the fairground ride
knock 'em all down with the sun and smile
roller coaster ride i'm rising with the tide
rising with the tide screaming i'm in love with life yeah

wildness calm on my arm
love's a tiger cub looking cute as fuck
just you don't forget he'll kill you if you don't look out
cuddle scratch and bite feed him if you like
just you don't rely don't rely on love this life no

twenty nine seafood fine
love's a tiger cub looking cute as fuck
just you don't forget he'll kill you if you don't look out
cuddle scratch and bite feed him if you like
just you don't rely don't rely on love this life no
Track Name: Today
blind darkness swallows up the night
may we wait for the dawn it never comes
nor see the eyelids of the morn
in an armchair slip away

the past is wax
it melts away
hands are clasped
we're sandgrains today

by the fire the summers of a child
shadows fists and fathoms
close your eyes to the dawn it never comes
aching in the serum

the past is wax
it melts away
hands are clasped
we're sandgrains today
Track Name: Plum Wine
flower fire in the sky summer night
blossom's high and you're Ai and i smile

goodbye drink plum wine
a "kampai" for the last time

a happy time sometimes will make you cry
but not tonight we're just fire in the sky

goodbye drink plum wine
a "kampai" for the last time
goodbye drink plum wine
a "kampai" for the last time...
Track Name: Buddhas
five hundred and forty buddhas stand in the rain
tonight touch their heads tomorrow come back
see what it brings

the colours come falling just like rain from a tree
i stand out there laughing just the buddhas
you and me

the first time i saw you on a rooftop "ichi", "ni"...
i thought you were an iris where light flies
through flowers like a dream

the colours come falling just like rain from a tree
i stand out there laughing just the buddhas
you and me
Track Name: Roam
why you comin' to me
when i'm not ready for you
are you comin' to me
'cos you know i want you

guess i always felt owned
when all i want to do is roam
so i let go
but you were always there with me

one day i do hope
to make a home with you
guess we always felt owned
but you know i want you
Track Name: Pining Cats and Paper Trees
i never saw your paper tree
but know how much you meant to me
you do i know you do
you do i know you do

i'm wrong all the time about life
and you won't be mine tonight

well living's easy when you're free
but when i see you i can't see
what to do i know you do
you do i know you do

i'm wrong all the time about life
and you won't be mine tonight
are you having the time of your life
while a cat is pining tonight tonight
Track Name: Creatures
paint brush and a teacup talk
clown's face in a teardrop a world
ships sink 'cos a frog has jumped
and stars fall from the black above a world

draw me in 'cos dreams are real
reel me in we're creatures
we are seeing hearing things

"skinny chino", "vintage slim"
what the fuck is happening to the world
colours words in a galleon
bring life to a unicorn a world

draw me in 'cos dreams are real
reel me in we're creatures
we are seeing hearing things

how can we keep doing what we do
and how cannot people talk about it
when creatures roam does it mean that
they hate the stupid world
the creatures know
we're seeing we are searching
hearing things
Track Name: Unbroken are Hearts
vanilla you left on pillow you slept
now lipgloss on lips in winter so crisp

watch me not fall to pieces
watch me not fall apart
singing a song to witness
how unbroken are hearts

fall back to bed we know they expect
but off we will go i guess this is devotion

watch us not fall to pieces
watch us not fall apart
painting a picture witness
how unbroken we are

unbroken we are
lucky we are
unbroken we are
lucky we are

vanilla you left
we know they expect
i guess this is devotion
but off we will go now
