Track Name: For The Millionth Time
For The Millionth Time

For the millionth time will you stop exaggerating
For the millionth time will you please stop telling me lies
Since I met you
I have let you rule my life
Cos when you lie you really lie

I can't stand any more of your lies across the table
I can't take any more of your smiles when you know what you've done
I'm not hard done by
But I've not come by one like you
Cos when you cry you really cry.

And now's the time to put things right I know I must
And I will try to put things straight and at all cost

For the millionth time will you stop exaggerating
I won't say it again cos it really winds me up

Let's forget it
Let's just let it die a death

Cos when you lie you really lie
Track Name: No Stone Unturned
No Stone Unturned

Dragging my heels cos I'm tired of walking
You know how it feels when you ain't stopped talking too
Am I getting through?

Looking for space in a vacant corner
Fill it with traces of hurt I'm warning you
Am I getting through?

Hanging around on high street corners
Making sure I have left
No stone unturned

Telling you tales of the unexpected
Breathing in life to the much neglected true
Am I getting through?

I'm hanging around on high street corners
Making sure I have left
No stone unturned

Looking through a blinkered eye
Was the only way of getting by
Now I see it's just a sham
I don't like it but it's how I am
So maybe I'm on the lookout again for something I've never been
And maybe I feel the need to explain something that I've never seen

One day I'll find you and you'll smile at me
And then I'll know that you're feeling happy too
Am I getting through?

'Til then I'll be on high street corners
Making sure I have left no stone
Until then I'll be on high street corners
Making sure I have left
No stone unturned.
Track Name: I Can't Stand Mirrors(And I'm Scared Of Heights)
I Can't Stand Mirrors (And I'm Scared Of Heights)

The girl said "Boy, take a long, hard look at yourself"
The girl said "Boy, now this might not be too good for your health"
The girl said "Boy, tell me what you're doin' down on the floor"
The girl said "Boy, well you know this ain't enough, I want more"

Somehow to the boy this just didn't seem right
He said "I can't stand mirrors and I'm scared of heights"

The boy said "Girl, come on now I'm gonna take you with me"
The boy said "Girl, my reflection ain't all you're gonna see"
The boy said "Girl, we don't have to do it here on the floor"
The boy said "Girl, you know I just can't get enough, I want more"
"I'm gonna give you somethin' so wrong, it's so right"
She said "I can't stand mirrors and I'm scared of heights"
Track Name: Wish Away The Moon
Wish Away The Moon

By the time it takes to seize hold
Of the early morning breeze she'll rise
A moment come and gone 
Until the setting of the sun is in her eyes
Wish away the moon 
Take a chance and pretty soon you'll fall

Waiting for the sound
Of the footsteps on the ground she cries
And while the clock alarm
Does it's rise and shining harm she nearly dies
Wish away the moon
Take a chance and pretty soon 

She just keeps her eyes on
The beautiful horizon he'll
Kiss away her tears
But there's a price to pay and here's the deal
Just wish away the moon
Take a chance and pretty soon you'll fall
Track Name: Probably Normal
Probably Normal

When everything's normal and everything's fine
I can look into your eyes you can look into mine
But when everything's crazy and everything's bad
I can't even remember the fun that we had

When it feels like a long night even during the day
And the feeling of not right wont go away
And I'm breaking my own heart, nothing else I can do
All I need is a head start to get closer to you

Is it me or did the world just seem to change?
Is it you or did I hurt myself again?

I'm probably normal when I close my eyes
I'm probably normal when I hear your sighs
I'm probably normal when I tell those lies

Is it me or did the world just seem to change?
Is it you or I hurt myself again?

I'm probably normal when I close my eyes
I'm probably normal when I hear your sighs
I'm probably normal when I tell those lies
Track Name: Girl From The Neck Down
Girl From The Neck Down

I don't believe in no tearful goodbyes
I'll get along cos I've never been shy
Say what you want but just don't ask me why

And don't get too attached, I've got a plan
I think less like a girl, more like a man

This girl from the next town's
A girl from the neck down
I do like, I do, like I do

Wont take me long to get you on my side
I'll prove you wrong, take it all in my stride
Make sure you enter with eyes open wide

You met your match and got your fingers burned
I made it clear and now I think you've learned

This girl from etc....

------Break-------

Playing it cool, see it's harder to do
Don't try to fool me I'm smarter than you
You're one of the many not one of the few

I'll teach you what it's like to never win
You can take me out but I won't let you in
Track Name: Got Any Mantras?
Got Any Mantras?

At the foot of the hill there's an ashram gate
Where you can be still in an altered state
And chattering monkeys make their way to your side
You want to be a Flower Child
The smell of that incense drives you wild

Got Any Mantras?
Got Any Mantras?
Got Any Mantras?-Yeah!

Your body's a temple, your mind's the key
Your eyes are the windows through which you see
Your soul is the caged white dove that wants to be free
You want to know if God forgives
But you don't even know where Jesus lives

Got Any Mantras?
Got Any Mantras?
Got Any Mantras? Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!

The road to enlightenment is long
So take only what is sent along
Don't litter the cosmic highway-keep it with you
And as you find you start to soar angelic
Take another piece of psychedelic
Track Name: Big Screen
Big Screen

Tomorrow may not be the day
You'll hear me say let's fly away
But I hope it is

A better life is far behind
These narrow streets and cobbled minds
Well I hope it is

Why does this self defense seem like attack?
How many paces forward take me back- again?

I've been looking at the Big Screen all my life
While they're looking at the Big Screen every night
I've been looking at the Big Screen all my life
I've been looking at the Big Screen.

Tomorrow night the boys go out
To large it up and lark about
Like they always do

The girls reserve their right to sup
Like men they pale then throw it up
Cos they wanted to

Many's the time I've watched this play unfold
Many's the time I've thought they should be told- again

I've been looking at the Big Screen all my life
While they're looking at the Big Screen every night
I've been looking at the Big Screen all my life
I've been looking at the Big Screen.
Track Name: Look Back And Laugh
Look Back And Laugh

Mama told me it'll be alright and things will go my way
Mama told me I would sail through life, I wouldn't have to waste a day
I thought of mama and I took her advice
Taking it for granted things would turn out right
I looked after no one else but number one
I honestly thought in many years to come
I'm gonna look back and laugh at what I just done

Took me a while to realise that things weren't going right
He wasn't my style but I met this boy and then I took him home every night
I thought of mama and I took her advice
Taking it for granted things would turn out nice
I looked after no one else but number one
I honestly thought in many years to come
I'm gonna look back and laugh at what I just done

I never realised the sun don't always shine
And I never realised that livin' was a crime
But I do now and I don't like what I see....I don't like it!

Now I'm a lot older and I lost that boy cos he wouldn't put up with me
I wish I'd been told a long time ago and so to save all this misery
I think of mama and I'll take her advice
Taking it for granted things will turn out nice
I look after no one else but number one
I honestly thought in many years to come
I'm gonna look back and laugh at what I just done.
Track Name: I Can't Stop The Rain
I Can't Stop The Rain

I used to be a victim, I'm not anymore
I learned to leave it all far behind
The weight upon my shoulders has gone
But there's more on my mind

I used to sit and think about what I'd never be
And hate myself for doing it wrong
But now I've woken up to just how pointless
It's been for so long

And I can't stop the rain
I can't stop the rain
You know it's useless to complain
I know I'll never stop the rain

-Break-

I gathered all my hang ups and put them away
And left them all alone with my youth
The only thing I need at the end of the day is the truth

And I can't stop the rain
I can't stop the rain
You know it's useless to complain
I know I'll never stop
I'll never stop
I'm never gonna stop the rain.....
Track Name: It's Not Your Heartbreak
It's Not Your Heartbreak

You say you understand- but it's not your heartbreak
You say you'll lend a hand - is that for mine or for your sake?

I wish for a day you could feel the same way as I do
And then you would know why I can't let you go
And the look on your face makes me cry like a baby

You say you tell the truth- but I know you're lying
I've given up on you- so why do I keep on trying?

I've been meaning to say that I can't get away from this mood
And try as I might I just can't sleep at night
And this vague paranoia is all I got for ya!
Track Name: Got My Eyes On The Prize
Got My Eyes On The Prize

Got my eyes on the prize and it's you
Got my eyes on the prize and it's you

How do I begin to say how I feel
Now we have to kiss goodbye?
Staring at the road ahead is unreal
I'll be low while you get high

How do I pretend that I'll be alright
Knowing that I never will?
Make this living end my only respite
From the loneliness I feel

Since you went away and caught your freedom flight
And I've been left alone at night
All I got to do is say

I'll die before I find another you
I'll die before I find another you
I'll die before I find another you
But in the meantime....

Got my eyes on the prize and it's you
Got my eyes on the prize and it's you

When do all the good times come back again?
I just cant believe they're dead
Looking out for signs, the where and the when
Blame it on the things I said

Tell me that you don't have any regrets
Tell me that you're not unsure
Tell me you don't find it hard to forget
I'm not the one you're living for

Since you went away and caught your freedom flight
And I've been left alone at night
All I got to do is say

I'll die before I find another you
I'll die before I find another you
I'll die before I find another you
But in the meantime....
