Track Name: Magic Number
Magic Number

Run, Run, Running like a rodent,
Run, Running like a rat on a wheel,
Running like a rabbit `til you`re frozen in the headlights
Of a future that is coming that you don't want to see.
Saturday Night - Were all glued to the screen.
Saturday Night - Is when our dreams can come true.
Saturday Night - The Wheel is starting to spin
It never stops at You.

Magic and Mystery, - What`s the Magic Number ?

Red Letter don't get any better when it`s last orders on a final demand.
Situation needs are desperation for a lifeline to pull us out of this Hole.
And be the end - of all My worries and woes.
And be the end - of all My heartache and pain.
And be the end - of My Depression and doubt.
And put me high on a plane.

Magic and Mystery, - What`s the Magic Number ?

Alright jack cut me sum slack,
if you buy me a drink and I`ll buy you one back.
It isn`t Very Funny When I don't have any money
To have a dozen commercials tell me what I lack.
I`m a lucky winner - I got text on my phone.
I`m a lucky winner - I got Mail.
I`m a lucky winner - It just came through my door.
Everything`s going my way.

Magic and Mystery, - What`s the Magic Number ?

Bright light in the sky tonight, Spaceship or Satellite.
Damn right I`m gonna fly my kite.
Looking for a lucky lucky lightning strike.
And be the end - of all My worries and woes.
And be the end - of all My heartache and pain.
And be the end - of My Depression and doubt.
And put me high on a plane.

Magic and Mystery, - What`s the Magic Number ?

When I get it all, all the walls will fall,
The seas will part and be gone.
All the mountains I climbed now so far behind,
Out on the plains and move on.
Princes and Dames will all know my name,
The papers will shame any sin.
But if I wanna go and be Star of the show
I still got to know……..
What`s the Magic Number ?
Track Name: Billy
Billy


Billy although your head hurts and your busted heart’s turned blue.
Your brain flew out of the window back in 1972.
Smells don’t seem the same no more since Momma sacked the cook,
And all your favorite menus locked in Fanny Craddock’s book.


How you hated Mondays and those four same days to come.
When man machine refused to laugh except for something done.
Cheese and onion pasties start to push out from your ears.
Suits came round to close you down and rule your future years.


Smoulder in your armchair before the sacred screen,
Where fashion conscious families show you how to keep so clean.
With hands as soft as petals and teeth as white as snow,
Pushing for an answer but be sure to wash and go.


Billy’s pushing 50 now his kids have grown away,
His wife sleeps on the outside and her weight has gone astray.
Does the candle start to flicker? Has the sparkle lost it’s shine?
Billy seems to think so as he dangles from the line.
Track Name: Poundland
Welcome to the future now it’s here for all to see
You should be proud to be a part of this great society.
Where all your needs are catered for
And nothing bars the way
You can have your heart’s desire
If you’ve got the cash to pay.
So you’re working hard and saving and
Boy you’d better be quick
Cos the goalposts keep on moving
Like a carrot on a stick.
To drive a fatter wedge into the great social divide
Pathetic few go soaring up and the rest get left behind.

In the land of milk and honey you’ll get bugger all for free,
Stranded down in poundland with 99p.
Sinking on an island in an ever rising sea,
Stranded down in poundland with 99p.

There’s taxes on your wages,
Taxes on your home
Taxed for using energy
And talking on the phone.
There’s duty on your fuel
Then there’s tax upon your car
Now they’re watching from their satellites
You won’t get very far.
But taxing home improvements is too taxing for my mind
They’ll tax your scenic country view although that you are blind.
So where does all the money go in this almighty scam ?
A larger house, another jag, a nice retirement plan.

I search for some salvation in the dark economy
Sellin me Craic in poundland for 99p
But who’s the real villans in this daylight robbery ?
Caught shoplifting in poundland with 99p.

You’ll never beat inflation
No matter how you try
By the time you save to reach your goal
The price is twice as high.
When you’re better off on benefits
Then where’s your reason why ?
Stay on the never never now
Until the day you die.
There’s nothing great in Britain now
Our nation is a joke
The good old days are long since gone,
No Glory, No Hope.
“Climb the ladder to success”
The whip that drives me on
But when I finally reached the top
Cess was bloody gone.

Bow to the purveyors of the sin of usury.
Banking on the interest on my 99p.
The case for my defence when you deduct the lawyer’s fee.
Of 99 per cent of my 99p.
The only real solution is to win the lottery.
But I can’t afford a ticket with my 99p.
I guess the price of freedom is still too high for me.
Stranded down in poundland with 99p.
Track Name: Why do I care?
Why Do I Care

Why do I bother going out every weekend playing the same thing ?
Why do I try to do something different when everybody wants more of the same ?
Why do I worry that my next song has gotta be as good as the last one ?
When no one’s really listening anyway.
We gain experience for every day we walk this earth.
So why after 40 odd years am I still never paid just what I’m worth ?
Oh stop complaining and just get on with the show.
I’m not complaining oh No No NO !

Why do I care ? Why do I care ? Why do I care ? At All.

I could sing Laa Laa La La La Laa, All night long in every song.
Sing Laa Laa La La La Laa, and know that everyone would sing along.
So Sing Laa Laa La La La Laa, Laa Laa La La La Laa Laa Laa Laa,
Laa Laa La La La Laa, Laa Laa La La La Laa Laa Fucking Laaaa.

Now you’re standing with your back to me talking about what you just watched on TV, we’re just a Juke Box in your mind.
You’re as keen to purchase our CDs as you are to contract HIV but you’d still buy half as much for twice the price.
Your sadly short attention span is dwindling like the Incredible Shrinking Man. Can’t keep your focus for one whole song.
You’ll be sorry when I’m gone and there’s nothing more for you to ignore.
Just turn the radio on.

And Sing Laa Laa La La La Laa, Laa Laa La La La Laa Laa Laa Laa,
Laa Laa La La La Laa, Laa Laa Laaaa.

Why do I care ? Why do I care ? Why do I care ? At All.

So now it’s late and every sinew and every muscle aches,
I’m contemplating what I’ve done.
Go back home and rack my brains, sit in my chair tear out my hair,
Wondering where it is I’m going wrong.
So I stay up late and concentrate practice ‘til my fingers ache,
Body and mind and heart and soul.
Another night another town so seldom up so often down.
Hey Man ! That’s Rock and Roll.

Why do I care ? Why do I care ? Why do I care ? At All.
Why do I care ? Why do I care ? Why do I care ? I don’t know.

Well just for you here’s what I’ll do I’ll answer my own Question.
The reason lies inside of me and my own satisfaction.
I guess if you wanna be true to something be true to yourself.
What I sing won’t change a thing.
Makes no difference what I say.
But thank you for your patience anyway.
Track Name: Many Times
Many Times


Many times have I rode this road,
Many times had to bear this load.

Many times in my wandering,
I’ve seen pain and suffering.


Chorus
Many dreams have passed me by.
Many tears have been in my eye.

Many times had to start anew.
Find the strength to pull me through.


Many times have I turned away,
Many times have I gone astray.

Many times had to sing my song,
when all the world and my life seemed wrong.


Chorus


Many songs have I sung for you.
Many smiles have I shared with you.

Many memories along the lane.
Making us feel the same.


Chorus


Many times have I been the clown.
Many people have put me down.

Many things of which I can be proud.
Give me the voice to sing out loud.


Chorus


Many times have I felt despair.
Many times found someone who cared.

Many times have I been and gone.
Many times have I carried on.
Track Name: Leader
Leader

Mirror Mirror on the wall whose the greatest liar of all ?
The leader of the Party.
Mirror Mirror on the wall who`d stab your back to reach their goal ? The leader of the Party.

In the cut-throat world of politics gonna find the kind of shit that sticks,
Is the Nation blind to all the tricks ? Or too stupid to care ?
Society then pays the price of the dabbling in every vice,
Hey you don`t reach the top by being nice.
It`s losers who play fair. Yeah, losers who play fair.

Mirror Mirror on the wall who`d sell us out to save their soul ?
The leader of the Party.
Mirror Mirror on the wall whose skeleton closet`s getting really full ? The leader of the Party.

We the Public do not get the chance
To stop `em lining their pockets at our expense,
So help to build the electric fence around the Lords affairs.
Sell our assets one by one, Industry and service Gone,
Police and Army serve the Man to keep us in our place.
Yeah, Keep us in our place.

World Leaders and their wives, leading luxurious lives.
Sending their kids to a private school,
Playing the game to their own set of rules.
I don`t need a National Health,
I`m a Private Healthcare man myself.
I don`t care for charity.
I didn`t get rich by giving it away.

Mirror Mirror on the wall Who’ll serve their needs before us all ?
The leader of the Party.
Mirror Mirror on the wall who`d serve us better on the dole ?
The leader of the Party.

Out of this deceitful shower whose the hungriest for POWER ?
Above all else whose greed will tower ? Without conscience or shame.
Down and Down the Nation`s run, The big boy`s basking in the sun,
Misappropriating Funds in someone else`s name.
Yeah, Let them take the blame.

Leader Leader you greedy feeder on the blood of common folk.
Leader Leader you seedy deeder, take the piss and it`s no joke.
Leader Leader you needy breeder and your band of ne`er do wells.
Leader Leader may your God speed Ya !
Hope Ya Flaming Burn in HELL !
Track Name: Game of No Rules
Game with no rules


Where in the world are you going? To some far distant land?
To feel for yourself the heat and the taste of the sand.
It’s hotter than hell here and looks just the same.
Can you tell me who’s winning? Who’s in charge of this game with no rules?

Three children play in the back of a burnt out new car.
By the look on their faces it looks like they’ve driven too far.
One lost his brother, they all lost their schools
Can you tell me who’s winning? Who’s in charge of this game with no rules?

The brave news reporter steps up to the front of the lens.
There from the back of the screen a picture it sends.
There’s a yank in a tank who’s crushing a taxi,
Breaking a man and his tools. It’s a game of no rules.

The man who is tied to the chair with the pain in his eyes,
Cos the rules of Geneva Convention no longer applies.
Beaten and spat on and kicked in the jewels,
Tortured by wires and treated like fools.
In the game of no rules.

Where in the world are you going? To some far distant land?
Led by the lies made up by the men in command.
The good fight for freedom or a battle for fuel?
Can you tell me who’s winning? Who’s in charge of this game with no rules?

Morning has broken the checkpoint is blind to its fate,
As the suicide bombers strap on their payloads of hate.
Man’s blind indifference as Bogle once wrote
Rings true once again and it sticks in the throat and it’s cruel.
In the game with no rules.
Track Name: Sit down by Your side
Sit Down by Your Side


Like to sit down by your side,
 Like to get to know you see what goes on in your mind, I`d
 Talk and laugh together we can put the world behind us.
 Like to look into your eyes,
Spend some time right by your side,
I`m dazzled by your beauty and your spirit drives me wild.


Like to sit down by your side,
 You know I`m just the same as you this breed of Humankind.
 Go the whole world over just to see what we can find
 Like to close the gap between us,
Strengthen up our every weakness,
Open up all of the doors and let out what`s inside.


Like to sit down by your side,
 Light a great big bonfire we can burn our pain and strife on,
 Drink a glass of friendship and smoke a pipe of life, Ahh,
 Like to make contact with you,
Like to get my message through,
And I won`t give up trying for the dream I have inside.


I spend my whole life looking - Looking for a place
Looking for a space to fit in - Searching for a face


Won`t you sit down by my side,
 Talk of things in common we can share what we both know, Oh,
 Put aside all of our fears and let our feelings show, Oh,
 Sit and watch the flowers grow,
Soak up the sun`s golden glow,
And make our garden Eden now until the end of Time.
Track Name: Q, No Definite Answer?
Q, No Definite Answer ?


You can kill all the white men, Kill all the blacks,
You can wipe out all the rich and the religious maniacs.
You can kill the politicians, murder the police,
Assassinate the generals in the name of world peace.

If it makes you happy, If it make your life seem more worthwhile,
If it makes a forty hour week pass twice as fast or knock ten pence off a pint,
If it gets all those bloody homeless from out of my shop door,
And makes the streets and parks a safer place for kids to play once more…
Maybe I`ll buy that.

The greatest minds on Earth rack their brains,
Looking for the clues to help explain,
How to bring it under control when Chaos spreads like cancer ?
Gaze into your crystal ball……….
No definite answer ?


You can storm the gates of heaven in a big black limousine,
You can take Adolf for a round of golf or smoke crack with the Queen.
You can sing the songs of freedom `til we all go blue in the face,
Push all the panic buttons and just wipe out the Human Race.

If it stops injustice, if it takes the sting out the tail of life,
If it could ever make hatred obsolete and snobbery as common as shite.
If it could take away the suffering, take away the pain,
Take away the barriers and let us live again…..
I could be a part of it.

All the computers in the world cannot decode,
Mechanichal thinking capacity OVERLOAD !
Flitting through the data banks like a Whirling Dervish dancer.
Consistently drawing blanks………
No definite answer ?

Competition is essential. Well somebody`s gotta win.
Failure is inevitable. Somebody`s gota lose.

Resistance is Useless we all gotta go with the flow,
When ambition and obsession are the only words we know.
And as the turning tide of conciousness to the planes of higher thought,
To discoveries as yet unmade and battles yet to be fought.

All the stars and constellations fill my eyes,
FREAK hallucinations mezmerize.
Coded in your astral chart, the rising sign of cancer,
Get Mystic Meg to sort it out………
No definite answer ?

So tell me…..
What`s our purpose ? No definite answer ?
Who`ll win the Rat Race ? No definite answer ?
No, Who`ll win the Space Race ? No definite answer ?
No who`ll win the Human Race ? No definite answer ?
And How can we fix it ? No definite answer ?
Or is it too late to fix it ? No definite answer ?
What do we look for ? No definite answer ?
Ahh Have we a Future ? No definite answer ?
No definite answer ? No definite answer ?
No definite answer ? No definite answer ?
No definite answer ? No definite answer ?
No definite answer ? No definite answer ?
No definite answer ? No definite answer ?
No definite answer ?……………………….
Track Name: Zaps
ZAPS

Time just like a river keeps on rolling,
Like a restless breeze it keeps on blowing.
Somewhere in my mind never knowing,
Feelings in my heart never showing.
Better take those chances when those chances come.
One day you might just wake to find them gone.

The sun up in the sky keeps on sinking,
We just pass the time by simply drinking.
Life passes us by without us blinking,
All the things we did without thinking.
Better take those chances when those chances come.
One day you might just wake to find them gone.

Somewhere out in space might be a better place wher no-one dies,
Right now let`s make the best of what we`ve got.
Cos Life goes on despite us you know it don`t really require us,
To be Ready, Steady, Already or Not.

Losing all the things we take for granted,
Never reap the seeds that we had planted.
Forget all the plans we implemented,
The future like your headstone is cemented.
Better take those chances when those chances come.
One day you might just wake to find them gone.

Somewhere out in space might be a better place wher no-one dies,
Right now let`s make the best of what we`ve got.
Cos Life goes on despite us you know it don`t really require us,
To be Ready, Steady, Already or Not.
I see your eyes are shining, I see your sun is Shining,
I see your sun go down on me.
But you know that`s the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me.
Track Name: Dead End Corner
Dead End Corner

I’m a Pilot in a Race for the Future,
Every Day Never Knowing what the Odds are
It’s a Matter of Life and Death
That’s All that I got Left

Go Go Go Ace Speeder
Live Your Life Death Cheater
Sa Tis Fy Your Hunger
Down On Dead End Corner

My only will - To Win.
I won`t take second best.
My only need is speed.
Ahead of all the rest.

Go Go Go Ace Speeder
Live Your Dream Space Dreamer.
You`ll get what You wanna
Down On Dead End Corner

Cruising out beyond the speed of sound.
Hearing nothing but the rush of the ground.
My Body focused on the pulsing in my veins,
On the dials of the cockpit of my brain.

Go! Go! GO! Ace Speeder! Go! Go! GO! Ace Speeder! X2

I used to lead a quiet life, Children and a wife.
Had to leave it all behind for the race that`s in my mind.
There is no time to think of what has gone before.
Acceleration is pushing you to push it even more. More. MORE!

Alright fire me up!
I`m going nova and I just can`t stop!
On a path that I know is so Spiritual.
I`m only ever Real when I`m Virtual.

Go! Go! GO! Ace Speeder! Go! Go! GO! Ace Speeder! X2
Go! Go! GO! Dead End Corner! Go! Go! GO! Dead End Corner! X2
