TELLY SONG 
- Steffe Lewry

The telly's out or order
And we are getting bored-er
Making it without
The lord of control
Why hold me like you do
X-ray me till I'm blue
Do you not know
What you do to me
What you do to me

I need a fix of vision
It's my intimate decision
To live inside the fodder
Of electrical transmission
And when the late show ends
And I really need a friend
Where are you?
Where are you?

I'm too sad to live 
inside the ten o'clock news
Too old to build 
a castle in the air
But mad enough 
to know whats there
In the heads of politicans

Whatever your system
Whatever your knowledge
Whatever your state of mind

Whatever the government says
Whatever the teacher says
Whatever the police state tells you

There is;
No way No way No way
No way No way No way
No way No way No way
You can believe, 
it won't change a thing


JACQUES COUSTEAU LOVES ANCHOVIES

You get high 
with things you find 
at the bottom of the sea
You've got spacemen 
lifting off 
and losing gravity
Nothing wrong with using 
all your flash technology
Having raps with dolphins 
while you mange anchovies

TV wipes your brains out 
like the fishes in the sea
Radioactive sea monsters 
all grin at you and me
Watch out! Watch out! 
there's a monster about
wraps you up and p'rhaps 
you'd better 
watch out for your soul

Think we'll ever work it out 
or have we blown the time?
My friend says a spaceman's 
gonna sort him out just fine
Meanwhile if you're waiting 
just make sure 
your heart don't freeze
And Jacques Cousteau 
will tell you that 
he loves those anchovies.


FANTASY SHIFT

Smiling in the sunshine 
Drinking in the moonshine 
Riding silver life lines 
Flying in your own mind 

But there is truth 
in the middle of your fantasy
Can you do what you say, 
can I be what you dream
One quick shift, 
and we're caught in between
You could be me, I could be you

Planning for the future
Fashion seems to suit you
With a mood thats soft and mellow
And so much more will follow

But there is truth 
in the middle of your fantasy
Can you do what you say, 
can I be what you dream
One quick shift, 
and we're caught in between
You could be me, I could be you

You're taking your advantage
But don't take me for granted
If I go for simple pleasure
It's more than you can measure


THE MEGA NUMBER

If you fell in love 
Would your friends 
all think you stupid
If you fell in love 
Would they think 
you such a fool
If you fell in love 
Would they set 
you up as cupid
If you fell in love 
Would they say 
you'd lost your cool?

Maybe but 
Don't be afraid to love
Afraid to love
Don't be afraid to love
Afraid to love
Don't be afraid to love
Afraid to love

If you fell in love 
Do you think you'd 
drink less beer
If you fell in love 
You could overcome your fears
If you fell in love 
Would they think you're such a bore
If you fell in love 
Could you stop the third world war?

Maybe but That's a stranger love
A stranger love
That's a stranger love
A stranger love
That's a stranger love
A stranger love
That's a stranger love
A stranger love

Your head is full of thoughts 
but how many are yours
Running through your life 
and feeling so alone
Dashing into work 
got to be there on the dot
Don't make your mind 
take your order from the top
Then you read the papers 
fill you up with lies
Now you don't know 
if you're dead or alive
'All I need is one break 
to get me out of here'
Why not face the facts, 
its gonna last for years and years

Cos he never stops
He likes it too much
He's an easy touch
For that emotional crutch
You like it too much
You're an easy touch
For that emotional crutch

Somestimes I get scared 
of being so alone
Wish I'd never dared 
to roll away such a stone
Losing my direction 
don't know up from down
Be my one connection, 
would you stay with me
Sometimes I get the feeling 
I ought to pack it up
If you caught me kneeling 
would you think I was cracking up
Sometimes I get drunk, 
take away the pain
Come on like the devil, 
would you still love me?

Cos I never stop
I like it too much
I'm an easy touch
For that emotional crutch
You like it too much
You're an easy touch
For that emotional crutch 
ha ha ha ha ha ha ha


SO GLAD YOU'RE HERE

Things were looking 
pretty black
No going forward, 
no turning back
I couldn't see why 
this was happening to me
But then you turned around 
and smiled at me, 
and I'm 

So glad you're here
So glad you're here

I don't really expect 
you to stay with me
I really want to see 
you floating free
But there are times 
when I need your touch
I gotta tell you that 
I love you so much, 
and I'm 

So glad you're here
So glad you're here


SECRETS

There are no secrets, 
you either know it or you don't
Its right in front of your noses, 
you believe it or you don't
Follow your instincts, 
if that's what you want to do
But you gotta do something 
to get out of the zoo

Look at them
Searching for secrets
Look at them
Searching for a leader

I said there are no secrets, 
but you can hide it if you like
And you can pick your religion, 
but does there have to be a fight
Or you can take it all over, 
if thats what you want to do
But you gotta do something 
to get out of the zoo, 
to get out of the zoo, 
to get out of the zoo,
To get out!

Look at them
Searching for secrets
Look at them
Searching for a lover


THE MAN WHO SOLD THE WORLD 
- David Bowie

We passed upon the stair, 
we spoke of was and when
Although I wasnt there, 
he said I was his friend
Which came as some surprise 
I spoke into his eyes
I thought you died alone,
 a long long time ago

Oh no, not me
I never lost control
Youre face to face
With the man who sold the world

I laughed and shook his hand, 
and made my way back home
I searched for form and land, 
for years and years I roamed
I gazed a gazely stare 
at all the millions here
We must have died along, 
a long long time ago

Who knows? not me
We never lost control
Youre face to face
With the man who sold the world

Who knows? not me
We never lost control
Youre face to face
With the man who sold the world


WAYS TO BE FREE

You can be a chameleon
But you don't have to change
For any external reason
That will leave you too strange
Don't believe in the fashions
Or you might get yourself lost
With no commitments no passions
You could be counting the cost

When you're looking at me, I can see,
It's sometimes so hard to get free
hard to get free
hard to get free
hard to get free

With your heart full of hate
You'll see nothing but pain
Don't you know that it's fear
Thats got your spirit in chains
Hey, but when you're in love
There's no reason to worry
When you're in love
Never say sorry

When you're looking at me, I can see,
So many ways to be free
ways to be free
ways to be free
ways to be free

You've seen them strutting around
All those bullies and fascists
They drive you deep underground
And you don't know how to smash it
Cos you head's full of dope
And don't you know it don't suit you
It's only chemical hope
Thats turned yr back to the future

When you're looking at you, 
what can I do?
It's sometimes so hard to get through
hard to get through
hard to get through
hard to get through

Its so hard on your own
To find someone to trust
Don't let your heart turn to stone
Or your dreams turn to dust
Its hard to find a good friend
Not motivated by greed
But I believe in the end
You will find what you need

When I'm looking at you, 
I can believe it's true
That somehow we all will pull through
all will pull through
all will pull through
all will pull through
