Track Name: Gravity
Well I had a dream last night
There was no gravity
Well I had a dream last night
Nothing holding me – down
Gravity – holding me
Gravity – holding me

Went to see my analyst
To try to figure the facts
She says you get no free advice
Life’s like that you see
With no gravity – holding me
Gravity – holding me

Well I had a dream last night
There was no gravity
Well I had a dream last night
Nothing holding me
Nothing holding us
There your life entrusts

Gravity – holding you
Gravity – holding us
Track Name: My Machine
Please don’t lean
ON my machine
Keep it clean
And tidy
It cost me money
It cost me time
It cost me all of the best years of my mind
Please don’t lean
On my machine
Don’t lean

I’ve got reason To believe
I’ll get my money back
From this metallic thief
Don’t lean on my machine
While I get it back

Took it from the widows
The orphans need
Took it from the roses
Took it from the weed
In far flung fields
Where poppies grow
Red like blood
Then white like snow
For my machine
Don’t lean on my machine

Spin the wheel
Make a deal
Raise the stakes
That’s all it takes
Can’t miss me
I’m the tallest one
I’m in your sky
O my
Come and have a wheel on my big wheel
Come and make a deal
Spin another wheel
If you want to stay healthy
While I get wealthy
You can watch
Keep your hands off

Please don’t lean
On my machine
Keep it clean and tidy

that was a nice house
that was a nice car

It cost me money
It cost me time
It cost me all of the best years of my mind

Please don’t lean
On my machine
(He was a family man) don’t lean
There’s a good chap Just stand back
Where’s your?……………………………………………
Please don’t lean on my machine (repeat)
Track Name: Small Town
Am I doing alright
To settle down
In a small town

I don't want to leave the city
& make me blue
thinking of the pity
of doing it like you
you know you don't care now
what it is that I do
you're a fashion designer
I see the labelling
you do

"I don't want to leave the city"
you say
"It would make me blue"
if I ever left the city
until I make
a million or two
million or two
in a small town next to a big town
just a small town
next to a big town
doing alright yes
I suppose
will I point
at the emperor's new clothes
I don't want to leave the city
its good for me
to run with the rat race
to break free
who knows

million yes a million
million or two
just a million
million or so
just a million
million should know
million or two
just a million million or two
Track Name: Universe In You
There's a universe in you
You're so honest and so true
You're so vibrant and so fresh
You're the one I love the best
The best

We didn't meet by accident
We didn't meet at all
Showed you into paradise
Showed me to the wall
No sense at all
If you let me down
Let me down easy now
If you let me go don' cause me no sorrow
Believe it or not
A man wounds easily
If you love him today
Love him tomorrow
Cause you're in everything he sees
You're in everything he hears
You're in everything he trusts
And to lose you is too much
Universe of trust
You know that I love you
Know my love is true
Know this love is fresh
From the Eastside to the west

You're the one I love the best
You're the one I love the best
Track Name: Parallel Universe
Cause you didn't meet by accident
You didn't meet at all

Showed him into paradise
Then you showed him to the wall
Made no sense of it at all

And you know that I love you
and you know my love is true
And you know this love is fresh
From the eastside to the west

You're the one I love the best
You're the one I love the best

The Universe in you
A universe in you

There's a universe in you
Universe in
Track Name: Life Out There
Found it on a rock buried in the ice
say it holds a record of some kind of life
even if the experts don't agree
I tell you this
this much for free
there's life out there
oh yeah
life out there

I tell you what I'm about to do
I'm going to find another way to break thru yeah
I'm going to ride upon the crest of a wave of popularity I'm going to make a speech
about life out there
life out there
giddy up

and I can tell you about the 'nam
and I can tell you 'bout a global plan
everybody's going to take a little code
I wouldn't palm it off
I'd just do what I was told if I were you

found it on a rock..................
Track Name: Civilised Animals
Upmarket hotel
standing in the hall
for civilised animals
going up the wall
with business conferences
to settle nothing at all
but the carpet is thick and soft
for the vacation crawl

I'd like to stand around in here
dim the lights
I'd like to make it clear
we don't have the right
to take this land
god given land
to take this land
with an iron hand

upmarket hotel
plastic home
for civilised animals
that hunt
on the phone
me I've been so broke
I no longer care all
I know is that its cold in there

they take this land
god given land
they take this land
with an iron hand
Track Name: Two Degrees
MacDonnell Douglas DC 10-30
ZKNZP
1979 Low flying
Low flying
and all the crew
and all the passengers
kind of lost their lives
0049
Greenwich meantime

Two degrees is not far wrong now
two degrees out and she'll be right
two degrees out is not far wrong now
two degrees out and the country's sinking
so they had an investigation
orchestrated a "litany of lies"
and they blamed it on the captain
with the perfect record, why?
when we know he didn't change the flight path
he wasn't told of the deviation
programmed into the computer
they didn't pass on the information

two degrees out is not far wrong now
two degrees out and she'll be right
two degrees out
is not far wrong now
two degrees out
give or take away
all their lives

big mountain
in the flight path
only high ground
continent of ice
if it was just one in a million
why did they have to cover up with lies
and on the day that they buried the captain
that they blamed fro the polar crash
somebody broke into his office
maybe stole a few vital facts

two degrees out is not far wrong now
two degrees out and she'll be right
two degrees out if not far wrong now
two degrees out
two degrees out
there's corruption in high places
government airlines
system abuse
who will guard the guardians
when they own the legal process too

two degrees out is not far wrong now
two degrees out and the country's changed
two degrees out what a huge disaster
two degrees out who's naming names

Track Name: Pascal's Song
The heart has a reason
Reason doesn't know
and if you've got a reason
for telling me
that's so
then I got a reason
to know that it is true
the heart has a reason
the reason it is you
man is just a reed
he's very weak indeed
but he's a thinking reed
he's a thinking reed
and his heart has a reason
that reason doesn't know
and I got a reason
for believing that's so
Track Name: Heart of a Child
Now I see you
Now I don't
You're not here
You're over there

Heart of a child
Heart of a child

Heart of a child

(That's) what you've got

Never lose
Heart

I forgive you
If you've wronged me
I forgive you
Everything
I just want you
To be happy
Won't you be
Happy
For me

Even if you find
Somebody else

Even if you walk out on me
I am still happy

If you keep
Your beautiful heart

Heart of a child
Is just so strong
Heart of a child
Can do no wrong
Heart of a child
Forgives
Forgets
Heart of a child
And no regret
Got no regrets

I'm so happy
For the times we've had
Don't be blue
Somebody loves you

He made the mountains
He made the trees
He made you
And he made me
And everything
That you go through
Just remember, my love
Don't be blue
You've got the heart of a child

Heart of a child
Heart of a child

And I love you
I love you

Heart of a child
That's all you need

Heart of a child

Heart of a child
Heart of a child
Track Name: Quality Community Care
They closed down cherry farm
where did their patients go
its anybody's guess except the five of whom I know

Quality community care
Quality community care
Quality community
Quality community
Quality community care

they were given their own house
they bought themselves a car
one stayed home with cleaning disease
four hooned 'round all hours

Quality community care.....................

So he cleaned and cleaned and cleaned
and then he cleaned some more
he couldn't clean the cigarette burns out of the carpet on the floor

Quality community care

SO he burned the house right down
He burned it to the floor
he burned the house right out until the house it was not more

Quality community care
Track Name: Sticks and Stones
it really doesn't matter what's happening to you

it really doesn't matter
matter at all

its just your reaction
to what's happening to you
that's the only thing
that matters at all

sticks and stones
can break my bones
sticks and stones
but it doesn't matter at all
Track Name: Love Is
Love is not a feeling
In love we are believing
Something greater than the world and bigger than yourself
Love it isn't changing
Forever rearranging
Love is set apart
An ever fixed mark
Not just a spark
That's meant to die
It is a fire
Build it higher

The heart it has a reason
Reason doesn't know

The heart can come alive in the midst of all your sorrow Love can fill you up when you give it all away
You get it in the first place it isn't there to stay
o no
It can move
And if you wait
And pray
You'll get it back someday
Bigger than your happiness
And bigger than your sorrow
Bigger than the past
Bigger than tomorrow
Nothing in the world
can make it fade away
Its bigger than the night
bigger than the light of day
Reap what you sow
forget forgive
You've got today
And yesterday
Has got nowhere to go
Nowhere to go
Track Name: Make Room
There is a time
(for) everything

There is provision
Everywhere

There is a sun
There is moon

Every race
Make room

So many nations
In the midst of war
Tell me people
What are we fighting for

We can sing songs
Instead of make bombs

Everybody
Living on

Make room

USA USSR

Gone are the days
Of the unified super power

Send all your acorns
Send all your flowers

When I reflect

Could be
Final hour
Unless we make room
Make room

There is a time
(for) everything
There is provision
Everyone

There is a sun
There is moon
Every race
Every creed

Every human
Living need
Make room
