Natural History

To You:

The gods and the saints preserve you,
Cos nobody here deserves you,
I’m living my life in flashback,
Since I lost my card or cashback,
And I’ve gone to wrack and ruin,
Since I don’t know what you’re doing,
There’s no clear or present danger
That I see in any stranger.
Someone, somewhere said to me,
Will someone somewhere set me free,
Wont hurry up or harry me,
Will someone somewhere marry me
To you, to you, to you, to you.
The line on the screen has broken,
What once was asleep has woken,
I cover your face in make-up praying
You’ll one day wake up,
I’ve littered my life with magic,
Yet I’m neither dead nor tragic,
The gods and the saints preserve you
Cos nobody here deserves you.
Someone, somewhere said to me,
Will someone somewhere set me free,
From all that I’m supposed to be,
Will someone somewhere marry me
To you, to you, to you, to you.
Someone, somewhere said to me,
Wont someone somewhere marry me
Wont hurry up or harry me,
Will someone somewhere marry me
To you, to you, to you, to you.

Morning Rain

Unscrew your face from your laptop screen
See the people, the places in your magazines
They’re a big headed bunch, you know what I mean
Someone made them out of plasticine.
I’m the morning rain, it’s me again, I won’t go away
I’m the morning rain, it’s me again, I won’t go away.
Come down off your barbed wire fence
What you’re saying sounds stupid, it makes no sense
It may be used later in your defence
It may be used later as evidence for the
Morning rain, it’s me agian, I won’t go away
I’ the morning rain, it’s me again, I won’t go away.
Undo your head from the sink plug chain
Unscrew the cheap wine and drink like a drain
You may never want to waltz again
You may never want to walk away from
The morning rain, it’s me again, I won’t go away
I’m the morning rain, it’s me again, I won’t go away.
Pack your bags your room’s for let
They’re putting up the barricades
And laying off all bets
I’ve never seen so many people smoke
So many cigarettes
Pack your bags now your room’s for rent
I’m the morning rain, it’s me again, I won’t go away
I’m the morning rain, it’s me again, I won’t go away
I’m the morning rain, don’t you know my name,
Don’t you know my name
I’m the morning rain, don’t you know my name?

Twist

Twisted on destiny, fate and three wishes
We fuck and we fight, someone else does the dishes,
And meantime my memory reminisces and twists,
There was a time when we were filled with laughter,
Haplessly hoping happy ever after,
Did we string up a heart, let it swing from the rafters
And bleed.
There’s blood on your legs ,I love you
There’s blood on your legs, I love you
There’s blood on your legs, I love you
Evoke the rich tapestry of love and devotion,
Emote the sweet saccharine of all that devotion,
Forget all about that and fall in this ocean with me,
With me.
Twist, snap, I love you
Twist, snap, I love you
Twist, snap, I love you
Da da da…
There’s blood on your legs, I love you
There’s blood on your legs, I love you
There’s blood on your legs, I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you

86 TV's

Feel so straight, and look so slow
But just you wait 'til I get you home
I saw you laughing on a TV show
Didn't think you'd know, all colours lead to black
Say you cant let go, and then you're never coming back.
Watch yourself when you talk to me
Cuz I've got you and 86 TV's
And all those words that they made up for me
And what I thought they'd be
The radio's are red
They made a mess of me
So now I'm walking home instead.
Sweet like apples, I pulled you
Reminds me of the things we said we'd do
Now all those words that they made up for you
Could never pull you through
The greed and all the gain
They made a mess of you
And now you'll never be the same
I'd love to say I'd like to thank you all
But I have not the gaul, the wisdom or the guile
You walked into that ball
And then you disappeared in style.
On 86 TV's, On 86 TV's, On 86 TV's, On 86 TV's,

Bigger Wheels

Healers, dealer, skinflick traders, save my skin for
Later or else you won’t get free,
Your dim and dismal, loves gone rotten, grim and
Greedy and best forgotten, yet still you say to me
There are bigger wheels than this, wider skies of blue.
Hookers, lookers, pink skinned babies here’s a list
Of maybes I have saved for you
Your mad, appalling love and laughter,
Stuck here for ever after
Swimming all around you
There are bigger wheels than this, wider skies of blue.
There are bigger deals, there are bigger wheels
Than you get through.
Healers, dealer, skinflick traders, save my skin for
Later or else you won’t get free,
Your dim and dismal, loves gone rotten, grim and
Greedy and best forgotten, and yet still you say to me
There are bigger wheels than this, wider skies of blue.
There are bigger deals, there are bigger wheels
Than you get through.
Hookers, lookers, pink skinned babies here’s a list
Of maybes I have saved for you.

Storm Warning

Hell for leather, lathered, drunk, you’re soused,
You’re pissed, you’re sunk,
The juke box now is drunk, just along the way,.
I had a call last
Saturday to say I’d thrown
My friends away, reversed the charges
On them all,
I made a lot of calls.
Is there a storm coming or are we just another shower,
Is this a storm warning,
Has someone just cut the power, is there a storm coming
Or are we just another shower,
Is there a storm coming, coming, coming.
I would have kept you free from harm rang the bells or
Raised alarms, I would have kept
Them all at bay except I thought I heard you say,
You’re the leper boy you can’t come in
The monkey god is now you’re king, you’re out,
You’re in, you’re out,
You’re in, you’re out,
You’re in, you’re out.
Is there a storm coming or are we just another shower,
Is this a storm warning,
Has someone just cut the power, is there a storm coming
Or are we just another shower,
Is there a storm coming, coming, coming.

Dark Star

A dark star follows me tonight
Filled with horror and delight
She’s come to make another son
A brother for the other one, who’s gone
The black storm on the pillow there,
Is the colour of her hair
Held by some strange gravity are my dark star and me.
A dark star follows you tonight, you’re filled
With horror and delight
You’ve come to make another son,
A brother for the other one
I hold a picture of your face, in my memory in embrace
With you I find I can’t replace
My dark star.

Stop

You think you’re lovely, I know that you’re wrong.
God made me ugly, so don’t string me along.
Give me the good stuff, I’ll leave you the rest,
Send me the good stuff and I’ll put you to the test,
I’m going to
Stop messing around, cos what have you found
On the dirty ground.
You think I’m stupid and I know that you’re right,
Or else why would I lie here in this big hollow night.
Did god make it easy, so easy on you,
Were you sent here to please me, well it won’t
Ge tyou through, cos I’m going to
Stop messing around, cos what have I found
On the dirty ground.
You’re going to stop messing around, cos what
have you found on the dirty ground.
Are we going to stop, are we going to stop,
Are we going to stop?

Sunlight Hits The Snow

Are your hand sunsteady, ready to be free
Are you almost ready, to sit next to me
If I go to where the sunlight hits the snow
Cos everyone knows that we’re bored with letting go
Is your head unready, ready to believe
Do you feel unsteady, sit next to me
Should I go to where the sunlight hits the snow
Cos everyone knows that we’re bored with letting go.
Cos everyone knows that when the sunlight hits the snow
We shall go, I just get bored with letting you know.

No Fear Of Falling

Through my sleepless days I've found
That in my dreamless sleep I'm bound
To one night hear the sound of your calling
Do not stumble through tonight, have no fear of falling.
And if nobody got lost and if no-one pays the cost
The price of this you may surmise is ever after
You won't stumble through tonight drowning
In their laughter
You won't stumble through tonight drowning
In their laughter.
In these moments we awake,
Our heads clear of the mistakes
How we never hit the brakes or felt it stalling
Just don't stumble through tonight, have no fear of falling
Don't stumble through tonight, have nor fear of falling.

Because

She turns the blue ksy black, I put her on her back
Am I dying, she is lying next to me, she comes again
From the central reservations,
In the subways at the station
It is waiting, it is waiting to be free, to come to me.
From the devil came a daughter,
I was bathing in her waters
She was crying, she was lying over me, we come again.
She turns the blue sky black, she puts me on my back
Is it the night time, it’s a lifeline to the day,
It will come again.
Kill me before you die, kill me before you die,
Cos I love you, cos I love you, don’t let it go, it will come again.

I Am Kloot

Untitled #1

you say you're like a tree or a bus stop
with your hands by your side
lets say you're like a field of tulips
cheap gold flowers in the sky
if the cavalry comes, is it really no suprise
count the calory cops, i'm allowing alibis
drag the shine off your stool and leave me, its raining outside
catch your life through some strange indifference, i don�t want lullabies
paralysed on parade and ready to drop you know
amazed and a mess, you may just stop me and go
(well he said he was a vegetarian, all those animals in water)
here come the calory cops, is it really no suprise?
and if the cavalry comes i'm allowing alibis
count your life like some strange and different
go one word at a a time
can't you hear the bells ringing
get your hands off my sky
in a place where the words all just fall apart
with the sound of a stutter
a mutter in your heartclock the spokes off your wheels, its safer just to ride
put your heart in the back, i've not once seen you smile
you say you're like a tree, or a bus stop

From Your Favourite Sky

Do you dare
Take a breathe
Do you dream of a tragic death
I know you do
Do you wail
Do you weap
Do you sing yourself to sleep
You delicate flower
And so what is love?
And who am I
To dare to pull the stars from your favourite sky
You were born
Forth from joy
You're every girl and boy
You know you are, you know you are
And you dress
Like a dame
And you burn on a catholic flame
By the hours, by the hours
And so what is love?
And who am I?
To dare to pull the stars from your favourite sky
You possess
S'avoir faire
Put cheap bleach on your hair
You know you do, you know you do
Do you dare
Take a breath
Do you dream of a tragic death
You delicate flower
And so what is love?
And who am I?
To dare to pull the stars from your favourite sky
And so what is love?
And who am I?
To dare to pull the stars from your favourite sky
From your favourite sky

Life In A Day

Life in a day
Fleet of foot
Full of grace
Love, mercy miles
Freedom fortune, such a filthy child
Life in a day
Life in a day
Stick your jokes, your hoax in a box
Chew the chains, loose the locks
Lease your mind and find a better rate
If freedom feels like a first mistake
Life in a day
Life in a day
Life in a day
See you hoof and move your feet of clay
Let it go you know, or let it break
Freedom feels like a first mistake
Life in a day
Life in a day
(You got your education) x3

Strange Arrangement Of Colour

A strange arrangement of colours
You found your feet where you put her
I'm after you, you're after me
The things that we say, the things that we see
We've got to be reminded,
Where did you go?
And what did you see, when you were there?
What did you leave? leave? leave? leave?
The light that is reflected
The times that you rejected
Your after me, I'm after you,
The things that we say The things that we do
We've got to be good looking
Where did you go? And what did you see,
When you were there?What did you leave? leave? leave? leave?
A lie that is rejected
A time that we reflected
I'm after you, you're after me
The things that we say, the things that we see
We've got to be reminded,
Where did you go?And what did you see, when you were there?
What did you leave? leave? leave? leave?

Cukoo

You stand like a rock, on top of the mountain
Run like a river, fall like a fountain
The grass still is growing, the wind still is blowing, about you
Reels like a strain, drinks like a scholar
Drown in this town, you can feel for one dollar
Since when were you bitten, where were you smitten
Cuckoo
Cuckoo
Cuckoo
Cuckoo
Looks like a date, but seems like your brother
Seems like your father, your sister, your mother
Threw out in chains, wildhood and childhood, cuckoo
Drinks like a rogue, looks like no other
Looks like a dream, one you’ll discover
Seems like its bitten, whence were you smitten, cuckoo
Cuckoo
Cuckoo
Cuckoo
Cuckoo
Looks like a saint, drinks like a scholar
Dreams in this town you can buy for one dollar
Whence were you smitten, where were you bitten, cuckoo
Wrench like a chain(?), looks like no other
Your father, your mother, your sister, your brother
Have all since long gone, all since long gone
Cuckoo
Cuckoo
Cuckoo
Cuckoo
Stand like a rock
You stand like a rock
Cuckoo
Cuckoo

Mermaids

Does it feel like religion
Does it crush your old ideas?
Well fold me in paper
I've got some here
And show me the warrant
To which I will attest
put me in handcuffs
I'll give it a rest
The light through he windows
Casts doubt on the mermaids
And they sing at the bottom of the sea
You've run out of business
In light of what you want
You've come wielding plastic
And gone straight to the front
You've rejigged and counted,
it's a mountain not too much
I'll give you my credence
if that's not enough
The light through the window
Casts down on the mermaids
And they sink to the bottom of the sea
You're reading the letters
that no-one ever wrote
I'm moving through something
I travel in hope
So read me the warrant,
to which i will attest
Put me in handcuffs
ill give it a rest
The light through he window
Casts down on the mermaids

Proof

Hey, could you stand another drink
I'm better when I don't think
It seems to get me through
Say, d'you wanna spin another line
Like we had a good time
Not that I need proof
Swell, we're living in a hotel
And someones ringing my bell
In a room without a view
Hey, heard you read another book
Should I take another look
Who am I
Without you
ahhhoooo
ahhh
ahhoooo
ahhh
ahh
Hey, could you stand another drink?
I'm better when I don't think
It seems to get me through
Say, d'you wanna spin another line
Like we had a good time
Not that I need proof
Swell, we're living in a hotel
Someone's ringing my bell
In a room without a view
Hey, heard you read another book
Should I take another look?
Who am I
Without you
ahhhoooo
ahhh
ahhoooo
ahhh
ahh
lalalalalalalalala
lalalalalala...

Sold As Seen

You know the place where faces fit
I've heard they've got a name for it
Lets go back to the sandy shores
The velvet skies are ours once more
We're fake, for real
Our minds are steel
Our eyes are green
We're sold as seen
I heard you joined the main parade
A hero dressed in ticker-tape
And go if all the worlds a trick
I'll take the sky and measure it
So leave your favourite photograph
The only thing you had that lasts
And go back to the sandy shores
The velvet skies are ours once more
There all for real
There is no deal
They're sold as seen
You know the place where faces fit
I've heard they've got a name for it
Lets go back to the sandy shores
The velvet skies are yours once more
You're fake, for real
Your minds are steel
Your eyes are green
You're sold as seen
Sold as seen
We're fake, for real
Our minds are steel
Our eyes are green
We're sold as seen
Sold as seen

Not A Reasonable Man

you're not having this,
and i'm not having that
i'm not a reasonable man,
i've come for it back
let 'em all in,
don't you know that i love a crowd
but i won't get the jokes,
'cos the laughters too loud
i never was slight, or silent with you
for one hour of delight, in the gathering gloom
i've no reservations,
i've got no roomfor these souvenirs,
to bring back for you
let 'em all in,
don't you know that i love a crowd
but they won't get the jokes,
'cos the laughters too loud
and i'm not the man you think i am at all
i was learning to walk,
and starting to crawl
i've no reservations,
i've got no roomfor these souvenirs,
to bring back to you
and you're not having this,
and i'm not having that
i'm not a reasonable man,
i've come for it back

3 Feet Tall

3 feet tall
With a head like a bowling ball
Cant get up from where you fall
D'you bring this back to me?
What’s it for?
Stood in the clothes that you once wore
Stood up from the night before
D'you drink and never leave?
Take my hand across the sand and lead me out to sea
Heaven sent the money we spent, give it back to me
Loneliness
It's got your name and your new address
When it walks in the place is a mess
And it drinks and never leaves
What’s it for?
Stood in the clothes that you once wore
Stood up from the night before
Do you dream and never sleep?
Heaven sent the money we spent, give it back to me
Take my hand across the sand and lead me out to sea
Take my hand across the sand and lead me out to sea
Heaven sent the money we spent, give it back to me
Fortune favours
Money takers
Get a sound and see
Sounds demental
Fashion central
Give it back to me

The Same Deep Water As Me

Swim out to the ocean
Drown your thought out at sea
And dip your hands in the water
The same deep water as me
You've been watching for cloudbursts
You've been praying for rain
Drench your soul in the water
Cleanse your heart of the stain
Cleanse your heart of the stain
The river of love
Flows deep through the night
Rolls you in with the waves
Drags you out with the tides
Swim out to the ocean
And drown our thoughts out at sea
And dipped your hands in the water
The same deep water as me
The same deep water as me
