Water under the bridge An eye for an eye a tooth for a tooth The tears that we cry in search of the truth Lies upon lies continue the fight Two wrongs never made a right But after all it’s just water under the bridge You’re no more a fisherman than I the jack of trades Said the cardsharp to the dealer as he dealt the ace of spades No use being on the right side of a one way track No use traveling first class if the train ain’t coming back But after all it’s just water under the bridge There was a woman I nearly knew Wouldn’t waste a word where a I whine would do She ran out of victims to consume Got tired of the tantrums, got up , left the room But after all it’s just water under the bridge

Don’t believe it Man came over here walked round the city Gonna give us plenty of work, good oportunity All you got to do is vote for me boy Give the party the power Put your cross by my name This could be your finest hour I don’t believe it I don’t believe it I don’t believe it Anymore Lady came over here all dressed in blue Got to have faith in me boys, I know exactly what to do Can we believe her will she decieve us God only knows The stika burnt the star the torch will burn the rose I don’t believe it I don’t believe it I don’t believe it Anymore Man came over here said give us the tools You know we did just that but they changed all the rules Where do we go from here are you to blind to see Yea we got a garden now with a serpant wrapped round the tree I don’t believe it I don’t believe it I don’t believe it Anymore

Crocodile Tears Don’t you wake up in the night To find that I have gone away Why not wait ‘til morning light See things in the light of day I know the score You don’t want me anymore Anyway Don’t disturb your pretty sleep To find what I have done Don’t you keep counting sheep Until the morning comes I know the score You don’t need me anymore From now on Don’t you cry your crocodile tears It’s what you wanted anyway I’m so tired of inventing alabies Every time I need to stay away Don’t deny the sandman's call He may not come again Giant oaks of beauty grow From small acorns of pain I know the score You don’t love me anymore That’s okay

The best out in me I may be right I maybe wrong Sometimes I’m weak,but then sometimes I’m strong After living so long There’s times I still don’t see But I know while I’ve got you There’s not much I can’t do You bring the best out in me When the world don’t seem a friend When every day the rainmaker sends When solitude once more accends To fill the spaces in my mind So I’ll let you take control Of my senses and my soul You bring the best out in me You could have been anything you wanted But you chose to be my friend Fickle fate stands at the gate I’ve no bridges left to defend There’s some you win,some you lose Sometimes I laugh but I’m not amused These dreams I have I do not choose They just trip me from behind I may be stubborn as a mule I might be crazy but I ain’t a fool You bring the best out in me

Girls with their clothes on Girls with their clothes on Girls with their clothes on A pretty dress a tee shirt and jeans Their favourite coat coming apart at the seems Hey fella’s do you know what I mean Girls with their clothes on When I get so lucky it’s like champagne and ice When I walk in the forest cool water sreal nice When I run on the mountains where II can feel free There’s nothing I like better for my company Girls with their clothes on Girls with their clothes on A pretty dress a tee shirt and jeans Their favourite coat coming apart at the seems Hey fella’s do you know what I mean Girls with their clothes on My friends and I buy the daily news It keeps us informed and it keeps us amused H scandal, the lies, the hypocracy From front page to back it’s just pornography Girls with their clothes on Girls with their clothes on A pretty dress a tee shirt and jeans Their favourite coat coming apart at the seems Hey fella’s do you know what I mean Girls with their clothes on When I was a little child I went to school Where I met all the artists and I met all the fools There’s one thing I learned at my mama’s knee Manners cost nothing and good friends come free

barby & ken 04:45
Barbie and Ken Barbie’s online to Ken again My Daddy just gawps at TV Brother fights virtual wars in his head No one has time for me They pacify me with candy and toys But really they bring no joy All I ever wanted was a friend Barbie’s online to Ken again I’m out of here as soon as I’m grown This maybe a house but it ain’t no home It may have a table, it may have a chair Whilst Dad slobs out , Mom cybers upstairs And it ain’t fair on a boy of ten Barbie’s online to Ken again The windows are open but there ain’t no air I wonder if they even notice or care House is full of stagnant souls Drowning in a cesspool of fantasy roles Reality committed suicide Took with him the virgin bride She never did get her fill of men Barbie’s online to Ken again When I grow up I’ll live in a place Where people talk to each other face to face I’ll play with my kids in my own backyard There’ll be no falsehoods or charade I’ll teach them how to use a paper and pen Barbie’s online to Ken again There’s hamburger joint down our street But we’ve never been there as a family We survive on a diet of Coke and fries The occasional pizza on the side We don’t eat nothing that falls from a tree Still it stops the gap where our feelings should be The stove ain’t been lit since I don’t know when Barbie’s online to Ken again When I come of age, I’ll be a man I’m gonna find me a piece of land Water and nurture Gods good seed Won’t eat nothing processed in a factory Leave these morons in their own stench Barbie’s online to Ken again

Charity returns You gave to me all of your guilt You gave to me all of your fears Twisted the knife right up to the hilt You gave to me reason for tears You gave me a life to endure You gave me a life on my own You gave me the pain to walk out the door You gave me your acid tongued tone Now in my awakening Your gifts are plain to see Tokens of contempt,heartbreak of misery Take back your shackles and chains Take back your toys of control Take back your weapons there just bloody and stained Leave me with whats left of my soul

rats 03:00
Rats Rats! They fought the dogs and killed the cats, Made their nests in Sunday hats, Lay the bait, prime the trap Yea! We've got rats There's a valley over yonder, Where the air is fresh and clean Wide open country A developers dream   Rats! They fought the dogs and killed the cats, Made their nests in Sunday hats, Lay the bait, prime the trap Man we got Rats  Promise milk and honey ,give them bread and jam for Sunday tea We could waste it in a decade If we build up a good head of steam Rats! They fought the dogs and killed the cats, Made their nests in Sunday hats, Lay the bait, prime the trap Yea! We've got rats Rats!

so serious 02:40
So Serious I hear what people are saying,don’t you The’re not sure of the game you’re playing But it keeps them amused You just stand there and you think you turn them on It’s at your expense that keeps them having fun ‘cause your so serious baby you’re so serious I see the look on their faces, don’t you They just can’t wait for the spaces to stop laughing at you You talk all night but you don’t say one thing They’re so embarrassed ‘cause you’re really not the thing cause your so serious baby you’re so serious cause your so serious baby you’re so serious I feel polite rejection, don’t you They think you made the wrong connection That’s why they’re confused May be you’d be better off doing something else Not going to tell you, you’ll have to find it for yourself cause your so serious baby you’re so serious cause your so serious baby you’re so serious

can't do it 04:19
Can’t do it for you anymore There you go again stealing all my lines Why don’t you investigate your own mind You may find you have a soul Look inside yourself and you may see There’s somebody else there to set free But only you can open the door I can’t do it for you anymore I could write a book ,I could write a song Don’t take me so very long Just about the time it will take to get over you So before you go before you leave There’s one thing I’d like you to believe I’m still in love with you anyway But I can’t do it for you anymore I don’t mind the burden I don’t mind the wait And I understand when you hesitate ‘cause I’ve bee down that road before But it’s not fair when you turn me on When I respond you just turn and run Maybe that’s part of the game I can’t do it for you anymore
15.
tell me 05:36
Tell me I’m your friend No need for you to worry You can leave it up to me No need to be sorry No Apologies You can use my shoulder little girl You can hold me tight You can tell me all of your problems In the middle of the night You can tell me it’s over You can say it’s the end You can tell me anything you want Tell me I’m your friend No need to be fearful I’ll be at your side No need for teardrops Dry those pretty eyes No need to deceive you I have no use for lies To many complications Creating alibi's No need to impress you By clever things I’d say If I was acting You’d see through the masquerade

give myself a good talking to I`m gonna give myself a good talking to I won`t know me when I´m through Beat myself black and blue Give mysef a good talking to Shake myself awake again Question myself, tax my brain never going to be the same again Shake myself awake again I`ll be special, so unique The word`s an oyester at my feet I`ll be flying high on cloud nine When I sit myself down and give me a little piece of my mind Slap my face get myself straight I`ll be the number one candidate Be someone to whom I can relate Slap myself and get myself straight Ain`t gonna be nobody`s fool The worlds a crown, I`m the jewl I`m the exception to the rule Top of the class and I ain`t gonna be nobody`s fool

Everyone cut down They’ve taken her away We had no time to know her Now every single day Just seems a little colder Should we throw the towel in now The gauntlet to the ground The fight goes on until all have gone Everyone cut down Corrupted by their ways We had no time to show her They’ll abuse as their own Until they have outgrown her Clutching straws I’ll swim upstream To reach dry land or drown The fight goes on until all have gone Everyone cut down Everyone cut down my friends Everyone cut down The fight goes on until all have gone Everyone cut down Amputate the past Severe every memory Now the die is cast The end is elementary I will give it all I’ve got They won’t give a dam The fight goes on until all have gone Everyone cut down Starve her with their grace Feed her with lies Everything's consumed Through children's eyes I maybe wrong I still have that right The fight goes on until all have gone Everyone cut down
