Golden Bird
As I gaze in the dreaming sky
Where the golden bird must fly
A benificent moon above
Pouring rays of love

At the peak of the Thinking Mountain
Speaks the cloud named Marion I
Never let your love's fire die
And the golden bird shall fly

I Choose To Do It Slow
I choose to do it slow
There's nothing inside of me telling me no
So I choose to do it slow

I ride on a river of light
We glide in a stream of shimmering light
I am a glow worm
With a true vibration

I am tracing radiation

♪   ♪   ♩   ♩     ♩
And I glow, glow, glow

I am tracing radiation
And I glow, glow, glow

I wanna light the world
I wanna see you grow

I choose to do it slow
I choose to do it slow
There's nothing inside of me telling me no

Never doubt me I will erase my files
I will never permit you to set my dials
Believe me I will erase my files

Streets Went Dark
Sneezing in Greggs with zero grace
With a scowling copied-from-The-Mousepack face
Swaggering timid white narrow-bubble bugger
All they'll ever give him is a funeral for a mugger

But he built me a hole when the streets went dark
As the tanks and the queues ripped the grass from the park
Killed f'me squirrels and he stole f'me grain
Lullabied me about the greedy man's pain

Love Is The Diamond In Your Soul
We need the hiss & the crackle of minds who’ll dream
Singing you love is the diamond in your soul
Let me be the one who will soothe your horror
Singing you love is the diamond in your soul

Fury
Banderoga lugo missember faranah

Underneath the train tracks by the 5 Arch Way
I crept into a tunnel hacked from the clay
Nobody looked to find me there and nobody ever did
This is the hole in which from greedy humans I hid

After 3 weeks in my hidey-hole the sickness began
And it was most unwelcome
My lungs filled up with jelly and razor blades
The toxins inside me caused astonishing and beautiful visual disturbances
I saw a universe of river slime
Everything was moving
Giant orange molecules vibrating
Tiny green galaxies oscillating
Crowds of ecstatics washed away by angry water

Then came a settling freshness
And cracklin' electric vocalised announcements:

Banderoga lugo missember faranah
Faranah versuga versuga hozar
Lazer mandereela who effa da nah

You've Been Injected With A Tracking Device
You stole my motor man and that ain't nice
You scared my family now you're paying the price
Do you think they found you with the shake of a dice?
Oh no you've been injected with a tracking device

You've been injected with a tracking device
You've been injected with a tracking device
That's what you get man when your heart's full of ice
You've been injected with a tracking device

Before I knew you I was calm as a cat
Now I've got to sleep with a baseball bat
But I'm laughing now locked in the dark in my flat
Cos I'm always gonna know where my enemy's at

Chemicals
I am put into the rock, I am left

Pushed into slits in the ground
A half a mile down
They made a cage on a rope
They made a cage on a rope for me
Now I'm living in soil

Salamander me cracking up black rocks
With a lung o' bloody dust and a molten spine
The heat in these cracks is torment

Tack tack tack tack
Where there is no teaching
Where there is no air

Pink pain in the top of my brain
Itchy chains and a shimmering blob which represents musics unmade

When my chemicals go wrong I slide into a catatonic stillness
When my chemicals go wrong I lie down on the floor

Cruel Water
Never leave here never go
Never leave me here is home

Cruel water cruel and cold
Cruel water uncontrolled
Cruel water carries all
Cruel wall

Never leave here never go
In the sundown we lie low

Cruel water cruel and cold
Cruel water uncontrolled
Cruel water carries all

Cassettes
I played cassettes
To people in a drunken room

I played cassettes
To vomiting rebels who clattered about like skeletons back from the underworld

I played cassettes
To people with a love for all the poisons
Howling necking and licking and spitting on the floor

I played cassettes
To medicine women and medicine men juggling cigarettes and pills and shaking their broken limbs to the joy of the quivering and lonely snake-eyed boys

I'm a chemical woman and I play cassettes by the muddy and mighty river

I played cassettes
To stumbling luvved-up monks who swaggered and swayed in the gentle early freshening fog

I played cassettes
To craggy old buggers with limps and curses hammering crutches four to the floor

I'm a chemical woman and I play cassettes by the muddy and mighty river

The Evil Bull
Oh no! A volcano has erupted in my mansion

♩     ♪     ♪ ♪ ♩
Woosh goes the lava, all over my father
And it all slips down with ticklish vengeance
It is hot and it is sticky, it is horrible and runny
And the thick black smoke spews up in the air

Through this dimness a spectre emerges,
It's a great big bull with a horrible head
And it's eyes bug out and it's lips is curled
With 2 metal horns and high-heeled shoes

♩   ♩   ♩   ♪ ♪   ♩   ♩
Yin yin yin enter your PIN

He emits the awful belch of wrath
He emerges from the ground and he begins to shriek
He is big and brassy with golden legs
I must fight this devil before he steals my eggs

There is uproar in my mind and there is uproar in my lounge
My seventeen babies begin to howl
Then he beckons to me and he bids me hark
Oh he's horrible, demonic, as he starts to spit he says:

I am the bull of death. Have I got a prize for you Sir!

Well, I couldn't resist. I clunked him with my shovel
That caused one thing, i.e. trouble!
It didn't make him sweat and it never made him whistle
Why, he merely tittered and began to sing, he went:

Then I wrestled with him. I wrestled him, I say
I stuck the boot in and he stuck his hoof in
My, how I struggled 'gainst his talons of destruction
And then the brute said:

Come with me to Paris
come with me to Paris
come with me to Paris
Come with me to Paris!

Off, then I trekked, into the hell-hole
Looking like a leopard and feeling kind of dreamy
I got to Paris, I had a look about,
I watched the telly, I ate some jelly
I listened to the rumble in my big fat belly
I donned my bonnet, I lit up my pipe
Now I was the bull so I began to hum, I went:

We're Gonna Spend The Night At Bill Masheen
Yellow temple sleeping guarded by green
We're gonna spend the night at Bill Masheen
It's the sweetest place that you've ever been
We're gonna spend the night at Bill Masheen

This peaceful night will always haunt your dreams
We're gonna spend the night at Bill Masheen
Old men, babies, thirtysomethings and teens
They're gonna spend the night at Bill Masheen

And she knows our dreams

Feel the wind and rest forget where you've been
Come on and spend the night at Bill Masheen
To love this graceful place is in your genes
You're gonna spend the night at Bill Masheen

We're the children of this whirlpool dream
We're gonna spend the night at Bill Masheen
Just surrender and your mind is clean
We're gonna spend the night at Bill Masheen

And she knows our dreams

We're never gonna leave
You're never gonna leave

Drunk and Running Around the Town
It's a mental thing yes but I am not sick
I just feel the need to explore the city very quick
I drink and I run through the late night streets
I heat the concrete with my scurrying and jet-propelled feet
I love the street lights, the cars and the dark, dark shops
I love the sweat in my hair as I run away from the cops
The authorities can't catch me because I run like the wolf very quickly

Drunk and running around the town

I've split this city into separate sections
I suppose you want to know how I make my selection of changes in direction
I'm like a dog in a zoo sniffing too much choice
My route through the city is decided by a little voice
When I'm out there and running I'm not connected to the world
I've got to move fast and I've got to move random
Maps are just shapes and colours and I can't understand them
The authorities can't catch me because I run like the wolf very quickly

Drunk and running around the town

I squeeze through gaps where I don't quite fit
Into underground car parks when I haven't got a permit
I might caress a statue or kiss a car
Or lie down and try hard to focus on the Dog Star
I gaze up at the office blocks gleaming and glistening
Then I creep into the sewers and I sit there listening
I am a highly intoxicated urban explorer
I'm a human no more I belong to the fauna and flora
Hey! You could drink and run through the city
We'll move as a family as an assembly of Mach 3 worker bees
Meet me on the streets and we'll run through the dark
We'll move in logical patterns and when we see the moon we'll all bark
The authorities will never catch us
Because we drink and we run and move faster than the night bus

Drunk and running around the town

Militant Commuter
I'm a militant commuter
I love my little computer
It enables me to socialise
I who never looked into anyone's eyes
I'm a laptop protester and a secret investor
I love queueing up at the Apple Store
Where happiness glistens through a glass door

I'm a militant commuter and I love my little computer
It's got kittens and mockery ineptitude and shockery
I post rebellious crockery
Look at my rebellious crockery

Though insects attempt to prevent me from getting to the coalface
I will be first at the coalface

Suddenly sunlight streams in through the train windows
The passengers all wake up and the passengers glow
The woman sitting across from me is reading 'Bartleby' by Herman Melville

She puts the book in her case and looks straight into my face
She stands and she speaks and I listen carefully

She says
When doors are closing
When pieces of the moon are dropping from the sky
We listen to a loud and serious voice say 'Maths is a lie!’

Though insects attempt to prevent me from getting to the coalface
I will be first at the coalface

Jacky Stop Overpop
Gimme that bacon boy
Load 'Miser-Jack' boy

Jacky stop overpop. in a beastworld

He will gun down anything vital
He will behead them lepidopters
One more herd of swan gone
One more herd of swan gone
He will murder them pests tonight

Jacky stop overpop. in a beastworld

Prevent scandalous gunfire
Jacky netted equals freedom for fauna
Unplug naughty Charlton
Put him in cell block number 9

Jacky stop overpop. in a beastworld
