Track Name: Levitate Me Judith
If you know what the truth is
Why don’t you levitate me Judith?
Let your knowledge pour over me

Hey you’re the mind expander
Let’s get drunk on my veranda
While you write all this shit down for me

‘Cause the only truth I’ve found girl
Is that if you make a promise in this world
There’s a good chance a heart will break
And a missile’s still a missile even if it’s fired by mistake

You know I love all these secrets
Hanging out and if the key fits
Change the locks ‘cause I know where we’re gonna be

Way up in our ivory towers
Summoning all our magic powers
To ruminate upon the nature of our lethargy

So if you’ve seen what the truth is
Why don’t you levitate me Judith?
Let your knowledge pour over me

Hey you’re the mind expander
Let’s get drunk on my veranda
You know you’ve got to write this down for me

‘Cause the only truth I’ve found girl
Is that if you make a promise in this world
It’s hard not to break a heart
And a missile’s still a missile even if it’s painted up with stars
Track Name: Evangeline
Ten long years ago we held
A service for our king
On the east edge of the garden
Where the sunlight tumbles in
And I remember the smile on your face
And the colours that you wore
On the last day of school
When we asked what it was really for

As the mysteries of summer
Came and moved behind the Bell
I could see the shape of home and
Feel its gentle morning spell
And when I walk our secret path
Between the chapel and the Cross
I think of all the dreams we had
And the friends that I lost

Come on, Evangeline

Oh your eyes
All the boys would sing about your eyes, about your eyes
Oh your skin
Your golden skin reminds me of the trouble you got me in

Come on, Evangeline
Track Name: The Last Word On The Sunshine Girls
The stars upon your ceiling gathered from science museums
Where you can hide your true feelings from those
Who wish to see them
And though the self is an illusion
Make the best of the confusion
And don’t think of it as another season gone
'Cause we all need something to believe in son

That’s the beauty of rail travel
It gives me the chance to unravel
Every thought I’ve accumulated
Be it simple or complicated
But it all it comes back to another world
Where we have the last word on the sunshine girls

And David says:
Isolate your demons and bring them through
‘Cause I’m a healer and you
Used to say this is the song I’d choose
To be playing when I see her
And all these memories are stirred
By the very words

The stars upon your ceiling gathered from science museums
Where you can hide your true feelings from those
Who wish to see them
And though the self is an illusion
Make the best of the confusion
And don’t think of it as another season gone
'Cause we all need something to believe in son

In their cars and on the beach
Did you coin that new phrase for out of reach?
So silently we take down the flags
Kick them around until they’re dirty rags
And every time I’m lying on your bed I try
To picture those stars in a desert sky
Somewhere off in another world
Where we have the last word on the sunshine girls

And David says:
Isolate your demons and bring them through
‘Cause I’m a healer and you
Used to say this is the song I’d choose
To be playing when I see her
And all these memories are stirred
By some lonely words
Track Name: Korea
I saw Korea in your Spanish eyes
And secret pathways that you’d hoped to disguise
You’re an artist you like to philosophise
About roller coasters, articulate their lows and highs

Ever since you told me about the moon in the sky
And that thing it does to us every once in a while
I’ve been searching on and off for an explanation
Thought about losing myself to education
Hey girl, where you going so fast?
You know I only wanted to try and win you back

I saw a blue hand falling slow across your face
And you dreamed a long dream of a different time and place
We discussed these things and savoured their taste
Days wasted away, looking for some elegance and grace

Ever since you told me about the birth of love
And the repercussions below and above
I’ve been searching on and off for things that ring true
Like a 40 yard pass and when I look at you
Hey girl, where you going so fast?
You know I only wanted to try and win you back
Track Name: Dust Of Stars
Sing out loud your fragile heart is
Nothing more than the dust of stars it’s
Held together and put in place
By atomic structures from outer space

And as I search for a valid reason
For poor performance in another season
I calm myself with the knowledge that
We stand alone and knock ourselves flat

So come on put your hands together
Cassette tapes don’t last forever
Shout it clear so they can hear your voices
We are the dust of stars and our choice is

To live our lives all filled with wonder
And not let hatred drag us under
‘Cause hope is a magnet and I was drawn to it
If there’s something good don’t let them undo it

And it’s here

Sing out loud your fragile heart is
Nothing more than the dust of stars it’s
Held together and put in place
By atomic structures from outer space

Lost in pinball I’m judging angles
Wondering if my freedom’s entangled
With every inch of everything
All that’s without and all that’s within

So come on put those hands together
Cassette tapes don’t last forever
Shout it clear so they can hear our voices
We are the dust of stars and our choice is

To live our lives all filled with wonder
And not let hatred drag us under
‘Cause hope is a magnet and I was drawn to it
If there’s something good don’t let them undo it

And I know it’s here
Track Name: Hey Moon
Hey moon better take down your hood
There’s a few boys that need your light

Oh, she’s an old boat
Crewed by the broken likes of me
And my drunken company
We’ve got a little gold and we’d like a little more
So rub your dirty palms
And cover those filthy arms
We’re sailing far from this shore

So hey moon better take down your hood
There’s a few boys that need your light
Hey moon better take down your hood
There’s a few boys on the seas tonight

Oh sailing, to see what we can see
We’re no captains of industry but ragged martyrs three
On a wave and a hope and a cursed pull of rope
With a retch and a roll and a bottle in the hole
We have all we need
Work means nought to me
And career is slavery

So hey moon better take down your hood
There’s a few boys that need your light
Hey moon better take down your hood
There’s a few of your boys on the seas tonight
Track Name: Pinball
Get this pinball out your system
We had chances but we missed them
Chances to bring this to an end

I’ve been thinking about tomorrow
It’s not like me but I thought I’d borrow
Borrow some backbone from a friend

And I’ve been thinking about religion
Holy orders and papal schism
Like the schisms that split our scene in two

And I’ve been thinking about your sister
God it’s so long since I kissed her
I love the way she lifts the weight off you
