Track Name: Rocketing
Stars like cars
Follow me home
In the universe
Supa silver curse
Rocketing down
Hitting on everyone that's just
Hanging around
We will be melting in the sun
We are hypnotised
By luminous skies
Penetrate my hands
No-one understands
Rocketing down
Hitting on everyone that's just
Hanging around
We will be melting in the sun
There are things i've seen
That turn my eyes lime green
I want to lie all night
in your arms tonight
Rocketing down
Hitting on everyone that's just
Hanging around
We will be melting in the sun
Track Name: Delight
On my own holiday
keeping you far away
I never know where I am
Honey fingers
Strawberry jam
I've got many things to do
To keep my occupied until two
I'm living on treacle
Sticky sugar charged stew
Got my sweet toffee delight
Lick my fingers It's alright
And with cat feet
You're delicate and on the fence
My vacation to the edge
Doesn't make much sense
n my mind's holiday
I know all the words to say
But I never know who I am
Exactly two flights round the bend
I've got many things to do
To keep my occupied until two
I'm living on treacle
Sticky sugar charged stew
Got my sweet toffee delight
When It's over
You can scrape me off the wall
Supa nova
Go through the back door down the hall
And with cat feet
Go creeping on the roof tonight
Keeping distant
You'll escape on the next flight
On my own holiday
On my own holiday
I never know where I am
Honey fingers strawberry jam
I'm living on treacle
Sticky sugar charged stew
Got my sweet toffee delight
Lick my fingers It's alright
Track Name: Fall
You slip by wonder why
Shaking and fall
To be apart and never stop
To see me at all
Fall
Fall
You take me down your overground
Lost in my lost gravity
And when I've found my place to drown
Lie down in sweet harmony
I have flown far from home
There's not anymore
And If I fall will I take it all
Standing up tall
Or crawl
Crawl
You take me down your overground
Lost in my lost gravity
And when I've found my place to drown
Lie down in sweet harmony
Oh fall
Oh fall
Oh fall
You could try wave goodbye
With a small claw
And in my face still hold your grace
Don't look at the floor
Whore
Whore
You take me down your overground
Lost in my lost gravity
And when I've found my place to drown
Lie down in sweet harmony
I Fall
Fall
Track Name: Squirm
Spin me round
Push me over
You pick me up
Squash my finger
I can see you through those glasses
They look pathetic
Take them off please

Squirm
You make me squirm (you make me squirm)
I get shivers when I watch you mince (a-ha)
How could someone make me feel so sick
Squirm
You make me squirm (you make my squirm)
I fall over when I'm in the street (What'chu talkin' 'bout, Willis?)
Always someone standing on my feet

You're one of those who pretends to laugh
Just so It looks like you're having fun
Watch me put you back in your box
I'll squash you down so you fit

Squirm
You make me squirm (you make me squirm)
I get shivers when I watch you mince (a-ha)
How could someone make me feel so sick
Squirm
You make me squirm (you make my squirm)
I fall over when I'm in the street (What'chu talkin' 'bout, Willis?)
Always someone standing on my feet

What'chu talkin' 'bout, Willis?

Squirm
You make me squirm (you make me squirm)
I get shivers when I watch you mince (a-ha)
How could someone make me feel so sick
Squirm
You make me squirm (you make my squirm)
I fall over when I'm in the street (What'chu talkin' 'bout, Willis?)
Always someone standing on my feet
Track Name: Submarine
How you could never remember
That shining day in December
Lightning sliced through the horizon
Submarine collide on the big screen
Siren in tidal wave big dream
Time tunnel got me in strife it seems

Can you remember?
Can you remember?
Can you remember?
Watch the feathers fly
I'm in a dream boat
It's all underwater
I'm in a dream boat
It's all under water
I'm in a dream boat
It's all underwater

Take my boat and turn It right over
On It's belly
Roll it like dough and
Let the comet dust
Sprinkle in your eyes
Luna landscape up on the big screen
Dunaway with Faye in a big scream
Drop a rocket down on the building

Can you remember?
Can you remember?
Can you remember?
Watch the feathers fly
I'm in a dream boat
It's all underwater
I'm in a dream boat
It's all under water
I'm in a dream boat
It's all underwater

And you know
Without that scary thing
I'd be mess
I'd be just paper mache
In a B-Grade love nest
Submarine
Submarine
Submarine
Submarine
Submarine
Submarine
Can you remember?
Track Name: Mirage
Ah ah

You're lost
Here today
Away
Mirage
Sand your eyes are
Metal grey
Hey

Ah ah

Two moons
To follow
I say
You are going
The wrong way
Sleep insane
Hey

Ah ah

You saw
Giant waves
Of sand
Melt burning mountains
It's so real/surreal
Playing handstand

Ah ah

You're lost
Here today
Away
Mirage
Sand your eyes are
Metal grey
Hey

Ah ah
