Track Name: Old Time Movie
OLD TIME MOVIE

I’m pickin’ a sparser line
I’m pickin’ up speed sometime
some time I change my mind
some times I slow it down
sometimes it comes around
I start to tear it down
try on for size my frown
rip it up and go to town

but I’m still here
where I should be
I will make it clear
It’s where I want to be

I’m here by your side
I’m here day and night
I’m here time and tide
I believe in you
I’ll always be your man
I’ll always hold your hand
I’ll warm you when your cold
we’ll watch it all unfold

while we’re still here
where we want to be

and I know just what to do
I saw it in an old time movie
All I got to do
Is be good to you

I’m thinking about a time
before the dawn of time
before you where mine
before I knew you
I could not think straight
I could not operate
I always took the bait
And wound up poisoned

But I’m still here
Where I should be

And I know just what to do
I saw it in an old time movie
all I got to do is be good
Track Name: Round the Bend
GOIN’ ROUND THE BEND

When your out on the road
and your feeling the weight of your load
and your wondering if it ever ends
Just remember my old friend
When your goin’ round the bend
it’s always best to stay on your own side

and life this far
has been strange and bizarre
full of darkness and light
you never know how it’s gonna go
and you’ll never know what you might find

when you went out of your way
and you still didn’t get paid
and your day has been one long detour
and you want to be back home
with the family and the known
your wife garden and verandah

well my friend my good mate just remember
life this far has been strange and bizarre
full of truth and lies
you never know
how it’s gonna go
and you’ll never know
what you might find
might be a gold mine
might be the scene of a crime
or just like before a long double unbroken line

when the world’s caving in
on your dreams and your head
and your carrying it all in your shoulders
just remember to breath
and just keep believing
it’ll be alright in the end
and if it’s not alright
it just means it’s not the end

life so far has been strange and bizarre
full of twists and turns
you never know how it’s gonna go
and you’ll never know what you might learn
and still those big wheels keep on turning
Track Name: Beneath the Surface
BENEATH THE SURFACE

Your watching the river
watching the tide
that’s when you discover
when suddenly you realize
just how blue the sky is
and you want to write it down
at least give it a try
because you want to tell about it
but it’s so hard to describe

and beneath the surface of all things
is where the next surface begins
luck it’s what you make it
it comes around
picking you up and putting you down

now I’m thinking about tomorrow
about a time
of pollen and ticking engines
and unrealized crimes
and how if you ever get a chance
if you ever manage to just cop a break
you know they’ll send somebody
to try and take it away

because beneath the surface of all things
is where the next surface begins
luck it’s what you make it
it comes and goes
picks you up and lay you low

and I’m in for the long ride
following that river
wherever it’s head
as long as I got all this music
flowing all round my head
and I’m an honest man
honest I am
I’m not a teacher a preacher
a poet a judge or a thief
Sometimes being nothing
is just sweet relief

because beneath the surface of all things
is where the next surface begins
luck it’s what you make it
the good the bad
but in here there is plenty of fun
there’s still plenty of fun
right here to be had
Track Name: Dinosaur Bones
DINOSAUR BONES

Dinosaur bones dinosaur bones
from back when the dinosaurs roamed
dinosaur bones dinosaur bones
from a long time ago
now all that’s left is bones

The sun was painted on the sky
the world was still spinning down to die
I was still happy to be alive
and still out on the road still traveling
The phallic city skyline falls behind
fades away as I head for the hills
that’s the place I get my fill
of air and space and mothers milk
the place I go to rest my bones

I see a man standing on a distant hill
in my mind I say his name is Bill
he cut his kids out of his will
and he’s always on the phone
always on the phone
on the day his children fell from grace
he wondered what he would do with all that space but it turned out ok
he just filled it up with bones
dinosaur bones dinosaur bones
and everybody loves dinosaur bones

you know I once had a bright idea
that I could see things really clear
if I just got up really near
turned out to be nonsense
like a lot of my bright ideas
totally nonsense

do you remember
all that time ago for sure
you were always playing
with those dinosaurs
you were always down by the creek swimming
or swinging from the trees
or just lying around on the lawn
with them dinosaur
that was a long time before
being a dinosaur was against the law
that’s why you don’t see them any more
because being a dinosaur is against the law
that’s why all that is left is bones
dinosaur bones dinosaur bones
and everybody loves dinosaur bones
Track Name: 78 Ford
78FORD

I got a brand new set of tyres
for my 78 Ford
got the keys in my hand
and I’m running for the door
I got a long drive
to see my baby tonight
I got money in the bank
I got a full tank
I’m listening to Hank
and I’m feeling alright
Alright gonna see my honey tonight
gonna make her feel alright
gonna keep the pressure on
till I see my home coming in sight

Had to come out west
just to get some work
there is nothing in the city
and it’s only getting worse
my baby cried when we said goodbye
and so did I
but that don’t matter
gonna see her tonight

And I got her wound up
and she’s runnin like never before
the miles and the hours
are spinnin under my wheels oh lord
sit tight darling I’m coming
I’ll see you way before dawn

The sun has gone down
got the pedal to the floor
this road is long and straight
you can hear my V8 roaring
nothings gonna slow me down tonight
gone see my darling
before the morning light

I work twelve hour shifts
for three long weeks
I don’t spend no money
just work, eat, sleep, repeat
I’m gonna treat my honey
to the time of her life
ya know I love her so much
one day gonna make her my wife



And I got her wound up
and she’s runnin like never before
my 78 Ford
the miles and the hours
are spinnin under my wheels oh lord
sit tight darling I’m coming
I’ll see you way before dawn

I met Marie when she was still at school
all my friends said man your such a fool
but I waited two years
for her to turn eighteen
and now my pretty baby is waiting for me

I just called her up on my telephone
said sit tight little darling
I’m on my way home
she said I’m ready I’m waitin I’m right here
she said I love you so much
I will know when your getting near

And I got her wound up
and she’s runnin like never before
the miles and the hours
are spinnin under my wheels oh lord
sit tight darling I’m covering ground
I’m coming around
I’ll see you way before dawn

I lost a bit of time
I got two ticket and all those road works
My eye’s are itchy, my skin is tired
and my back hurts
but I can see the glow of the city
in my mind I see my honey
ah she’s so pretty

I know my baby loves me
cause she told me so
I know that she’s waiting for me
there when I get home
I got money in the bank
I got enough in the tank
I’m still listenin to Hank
and the skies turning blue
woo hoo

I’m turning into my street
I can see my light on
and there in the window
I see my honey waving at me
Track Name: Mountain
MOUNTAIN

See that mountain over yonder
it’s not frightened
by the lightning and the thunder
it’s not trying to get no higher
it’s full of fire
and it’s worn down by the rain

See that river
rolling by
see how it reflects the sky
see the ripples
scatter the surface
see stillness return

Hear the roar
of the ocean
watch those boulders
turn to sand
listen careful
the tide is turning
and there are worlds in your hands

Feel the movement
hear the beat
hearts in motion
hearts we reach
all together all as one
it’s all over
before it’s even begun
Track Name: Note to Self
NOTE TO SELF

Ya better give it up
you better put it down
or it will kill you
all this anger
Ya better give it up
better put it away
put it down
quit it
leave it alone
you better know
or you better learn
that the world still turns
with or without you
the sun still burns
and this is your turn
so you better breathe
slow and deep
you better enjoy
your own company
yeah you better breathe
you better relax
cos most of the attacks
are only happening
in your own mind
so you better find the time
to know your mind
to seek and to find
and to be kind to yourself
and you better help
for the sake of helping
you better dig and keep delving into life
and you better cry when your old dog dies
cos it cuts like a knife
for a while but then you better smile
you better laugh you better be tough
or even better be gentle
you can be grateful you can be thankful
you can be thoughtful mindful joyful playful
you can be strong and you can sing along
with your own song for as long as you can
and you can lend a hand
its good to have a plan
its great to know how and when to change
its ok to be strange
its good to have a dream
and its good to see
the lightening and listen for the thunder
but its best to invest in wonder
Track Name: Lucky
LUCKY

I’m the hat on the end of the bed
I’m the wound that freely bled
I know that some day I’ll fall down dead
But till then

I’m the lucky one
Yeah that’s me

I’m the kid that didn’t look cool at school
I’m the guy who didn’t win the lottery or the pools
I’m a guy who didn’t read the rules
I’m just a guy who found the tools to use

and I found you
and your luck too
I’m the lucky one

I’m the king of all I survey
You can see me
I’m just swinging in from the trees
splishin splashin jumpin in the sand
honey baby I’m your everlovin man
you should stick with me

and we’ll stay lucky
‘cause we’re the lucky ones

I’m the hat on the end of the bed
I’m the light and the skin that was shed
I’m the guy who’s hair turned red
I’m a pirate with a new wooden leg

I got a new hook and a new eye patch
Yeah honey I’m quite a catch
You and me we could be the perfect match
Just think of the plans we’ll hatch
‘cause we’re the lucky ones
Track Name: Sheish M oney - State of confusion
STATE OF CONFUSION

I know my problems are meaningless
that don’t make them go away
can’t always get what you want
everything is illusion
but maybe everything is as it should be
even this state of confusion

Something’s there
and then its not
some things you get fair and square
and then they’re lost
no solution but maybe
everything is as it should be
even this state of confusion
Talk too much listen not enough
life gets tough princess
suck it up
and you might find
you reach the same conclusion
that everything is as it should be
even this state of confusion

The clear blue sky
of a perfect August day
becomes the night
and fades away
into dreams comes intrusion
but maybe everything is as it should be
even this state of confusion
maybe everything is as it should be
maybe everything is as it could be
but everything is as it is
even this state of confusion
