1.
Get back, get on, get by Hoist by my own petard I can’t tell you if I’m struggling Because there’s been no change in that regard I’ve gone stupid from lack of experience I’m gridlocked from lack of time I cannot break the cycle I cannot cross the line I cannot break the cycle I cannot cross the line I cannot break the cycle I cannot escape the pyramid
2.
I am lonely I am small I'm graffiti on your garden wall I'm a misery I'm a bum But with you in my life I am the sun I'm Colossus of Rhodes Colossus of Rhodes Colossus of Rhodes because I've got you Well I hate it here It's a swizz I don't know who anyone is It's the ignorance It's the greed Having you on my side's all I need I'm Colossus of Rhodes Colossus of Rhodes Colossus of Rhodes because I've got you I get beat down You show me how to be Colossus of Rhodes Colossus of Rhodes I'm Colossus of Rhodes because I've got you
3.
There was a time I could look to the sea Back when the land sang kid's poetry to me Now, inland, there's bindweed around my fingers I should I could appreciate it, wish I could, but I cannot linger I'm too loaded with sensitivity to wires and electricity There was a time when there was quiet in the city A time before the hydroelectricity When the energy vibration was for the, for the fisherman For the knowers of the land, the turkey leg & wishbone Not to be appropriated by hippies Wires and electricity I'm not a child of nature I'm a classic modern failure But you are progression And you make me smaller
4.
I forgot my own past It was never meant to last So I looked to beyond pretty fast It's as bad as I feared You think I'm a little weird And now everything's gone wrong since I appeared Put this letter on my sweater Pronounce me an upsetter I work better from the outside looking in Put this letter on my sweater I don't know how that's meta But apparently your gesture says it all What you are so were we What we are you will be So ring the bell, down your tools, come for tea That's enough, OK you win Reputation's in the bin I'm surprised you don't consider that a sin
5.
WWF 01:14
My love life was like the WWF Tricky moments and awkward approaches to sex Very little contact or flesh or broad necks or oiled biceps But a lot of deceit So I didn’t know what to expect
6.
Paternoster 00:46
Paternoster I try not to feel an imposter At your behest We all face these kicks to the chest But life goes on We just have to learn when to step off and on
7.
My life The open wound I want to share everything with you, my love (And the internet too)
8.
Peckin Party 01:00
I must have played a thousand times But doing it alone never gets easier You're waiting for me to finish And I'm not exactly enjoying it either At this point we're all waiting For a single spot of blood To begin the peckin party
9.
My ship has sailed before me As I write line after line The task I’ll never master Is these words that sort of rhyme My heart was badly broken You mended it so fine It’s harder to write sad songs With a love like yours and mine Aspire to retire My dream is in the bin I’ll sing in peace as my release From madness setting in My grit is in an oyster My beer is in a glass What happened to the fashion of the working class moustache?
10.
Thames Boom 01:26
I don’t know what I’m alive for Clearly perfection is not what I strive for My defence is SNAFU But today is perfect with you At the Thames Boom

12.
Yossarian 01:14
If only you knew How to take responsibility too You’d issue some retraction And be culpable for your actions Why I am ashamed? The shame is all yours Yossarian
13.
When I broke the mirror in the hall It didn’t matter at all Because luck is not an issue When I can lay with you and kiss you You’re the reason I step outside Work a day job I despise Why I feed myself each night Why I didn’t take my life The music’s just something I do It’s all for you It’s all for you
14.
Smitten 00:28
I’m smitten Don’t have any money But I’m the richest man in Britain No shittin’
15.
Low tide’s edge You’re holding hands with me We feel each other’s pulse And the pulse of the sea This is the way I want to see out my days Morning sun across a mudflat Just us four You run as I hold your Mickey Mouse hat
16.
Mood Ring 01:14
Your mood ring is turning blue Even though you’re wishing it diamond As we listen to Neil Young We’re tired, warm and silent Everything is new to you But those records are truly amazing Saturday morning cartoons Have fallen by the wayside Your mood ring is turning blue Even though you’re wishing it diamond
