Happiness is the Road

Dreamy Street      

I had this dream. That monkey inside o'me.
Gone skulkin away.
Leavin' me seeing.. Being.

Seeing
Being

Drinking lemon tea
And feeling free
Chilling in the sunshine
On this dreamy street

This Train is My Life     

This train is my life
Speeding through the night
We have been to these places
For barely a moment

Wide awake
Sometimes sleeping
Sometimes watching
Sometimes dreaming

Through stroby stations
Too fast to know their names
Too fast to know if we came or will come again

Sleeping towns joined together        
By the steel of the rails
Parallel lines
Parallel lives

You and I
We're movie-rich  
We're reflected in the window
The dark night's black mirror glass
Distant lights from the wrong side of the tracks

Christmas lights
Go by in the houses
Anonymous windows
Anonymous rooms of
Anonymous souls

So take my hand
Squeeze it tight
Make some light
In the darkness
I'm glad you came on this trip
Don't lose your grip
Don't lose your grip
This train is my life
This train is my life

Travel with me
And we'll see..

Essence     

'Tell you what I want
Essence
'Tell you what I need
Essence
What I'm looking for
Essence

Sit in silence close your eyes, feel the magic everywhere inside you
Fingers toes head heart and soul, connected deep to every living thing
Not just the taste, the touch, the smell
Or the face you know so well
Not the 400 word description
The book, the film, the faithful depiction  
Get out of here
Get out while you can
Choose life, strive for essence

Choose life, Choose living
Choose life, Choose living
Go digging, Go digging
Go digging, Go digging
Go digging for essence
for Essence
for Essence

Sit in silence and watch the sky
Feel the magic deep inside you
Every woman and every man
Turn off your mind and you'll understand

Sit in silence and watch the sky yeah
Feel the energy inside outside

Aint one damn thing means a thing in this life
til you get close to Essence, til you try
Every man and woman listen to me, hey
Live in the moment or you'll never be free

Essence
Essence
Essence.

Choose life, Choose essence.

wrapped Up in Time     

Things come wrapped up in time
Like the past in a present
Or the perfect line in a song

They take their time
And when they're gone
They take their time with them

And you can't have them back
Because the time for them has gone
And their time has gone with them

The time for them has gone.

There's an echo of them
An echo of  the time they were wrapped in
Sweet or bitter in the memory
But an echo is all, all I can reach now

An echo of you
An echo of you
An echo of you in your time

Still echoing
Like a star in the sky
Like a star in the sky above me

And the story of it's life
Told backwards down this rod of light
But at it's beginning..
Long extinct.

Nothing Fills the Hole     

I wanted it til I got it
I wanted it til I got it
Believed in it til I saw it
I needed it til I had it
I guess I live to regret it
I dreamed of it til I got it
Believed in it til I saw it
I needed it til I had it
I wanted it til I got it
I wanted it til I got it
I wanted it til I got it
Believed in it til I saw it
I needed it til I had it
Then I wanted something else

I wanted to be free
I didn't last a week
There aint no pleasing me
That's how it's gonna be

Nothing fills the hole
Nothing fills the hole
Nothing fills the hole

Woke Up     

Woke up in a city that doesn’t sleep
Full of rain
You woke me up

Woke up in a city down by the sea
Like a dream
You woke me up

I woke up in a city full of snow
And history and beauty and Christmas-lights and cold
With angels that come when all is lost
In golden light at dead of night
They take you home
And I woke up
I woke up

Woke up in a city that doesn’t sleep
You woke me up, You woke me up, You woke me up

And I woke up in a city by the sea
You woke me up, You woke me up, You woke me up

You woke me up

I woke up in a city full of rain
The world had stopped
I woke up to feel no pain
Day from night
Anti-gravity and light
It’s so clear, just what I’m doing here

The blinding obvious is what you showed to me.

Trap the Spark     

The love that pounds your heart through your chest every night  
Until the bed jumps beneath you and scares you white

Trap the spark and hold it there
You can't. You can't
Goose-bumps that don't fade away
They can't remain

I've opened the box and I've touched the treasures of the earth
They're buried on the island far away
And I'm here in England with the map burning my pocket
Dreaming of diamonds..
Such a blinding secret to bear.

Trap the spark and hold it there
You can't . You can't.
Goose-bumps that don't fade away
They can't remain
Hold the perfect moment
Pin the cloud to the sky
Grab the spark and hold it
You can TRY..

I've looked into a million laughing unhappinesses
In every bar and on the TV
But I know the real thing
I can remember
I can almost tell you how it is

Trap the spark and hold it there
You can't. You can't
Goosebumps that don't fade away
They can't remain
Photograph a feeling
Pin the cloud to the sky
Trap the spark and hold it
You can try

Trap the spark and hold it there
Grab the spark and hold it there.

A State of Mind     

He looked down from the airplane
A crack in the clouds opened up he saw a garden of Eden
An island in the sea
Starin at the birth of creation  
The earth and the people living, growing, naturally
A state of mind..

He came down from the sky
Into the noise of a million lives    
A garden of Eden                                   
Was it all a dream?
We came a long, long, way with each other
We’re goin nowhere til we see we’re only
Sisters and brothers

A state of mind
A state of mind is a contagious thing
Spread it around you never know what the future brings..

Ready to sow?
You ready to grow?
Reap what you sow.
You ready to know?

A state of mind is a contagious thing
Spread it around - you never know what the future brings..
A state of mind
A state of mind

Happiness is the Road     

The greatest blessing that we have
Is the dawn of each new day
A chance to finish what we started
And made a mess of yesterday
As day comes out of night
A chance to get it right
A chance to start again
A chance to get it right

The people here
Full of love and comfortable in themselves
Not scared to let go
No fear round here

I met this man
In Utrecht Netherlands
He was a doctor of the body and the soul
He said to me:
Man, there's a book you have to read.
I feel your pain. It makes me cry
But these tears are yours - not mine.

You're focussing on all of your bad yesterdays
The worry lines are getting deeper every day
And deep inside you
No surprise - there's a crisis!
You might have been to blame
But you can't go on this way
Must I watch and pray?

While you torture yourself with what's behind ya
Torture yourself with what awaits ya
Draggin' that guilt and regret inside ya
Anxious of the goals that always evade ya

Your mind will find a way to be unkind to you somehow
But all we really have is happening to us right now

HAPPINESS IS THE ROAD

And each baby..
A human sunrise
Each baby - a human sunrise..

Look around you
Feel your soul inside you
Look inside you
Feel the life course through you
The life that's giving In every thing that's living
The plants and the trees
The birds and the bees
And apes like you and me

HAPPINESS IS THE ROAD

You're a slave to your mind
But you are not your mind
You are not your pain
Say it again
You are not your pain
Say it again
You are not your pain

Happiness aint at the end of the road
Happiness aint at the end of the road
Happiness IS the road
The road

HAPPINESS IS THE ROAD

Thunder Fly     

The little corn flies are messing with my nerve endings
Just like you
My little corn fly
She comes with the sunlight and the perfect summer days
And she never stays
Just like you
My corn fly

The little corn flies are messing with my nerve endings
Just like you
My little corn fly
Into my clothes and under my picture frames
Before it rains
Just like you
My little thunder fly

Ooh
She comes with the sunlight and the perfect summer days
She comes with the sunlight and the perfect summer days
Ooh

She belongs in the great outdoors
Kickin off her shoes in a field of corn
Even though she's only very small
She'll leave you in no doubt at all

The little corn flies are messing with my happy endings
The little corn flies are messing with my happy endings
The little corn flies are messing with my..
The little corn flies are messing with my..

And I feel her in the sweat at the back of my neck
I feel her in the sweat in the back of my neck
Feel her in the sweat in the back of my neck

Ooh

She belongs in the great outdoors
Kickin off her shoes in a field of corn
When the winter rains bring you down
Thunderin' around you
She'll take you where she found you
In sunshine..
Sunshine
Sunshine

the Man from the Planet Marzipan     

I am the man from the planet Marzipan
Good to see you
My eyes are screwed up tight, unaccustomed to the light
And all my arms and all my legs are much too long
Much too long

My head is in a state, unaccustomed to the weight
I wear this mild expression, I'm an alien to aggression
Music only does me in my skins so thin

There’s so much that I can’t take in
There’s so much that I can’t take in
There's so much that I daren't take in

Can you feel through my skin to me?
Can you feel through my skin to me?

Throw a tarpaulin over me
I look like a rotary washing line
I am the face of 2069
I have trouble with my breathing
My net-curtain lungs
And the thoughtlessness of other people's careless tongues

The air's so thin
Oh my skin
The air's so thin
Oh my skin

I am the man from the planet Marzipan
My eyes are screwed up tight, unaccustomed to the light
I wear this mild expression, I'm an alien to aggression

The air's so thin
Oh my skin
Oh my skin..

I'm so close..
I'm so close to a breakdown
A constant crisis in the heart

What the hell is going on here?
Earth creatures. Amazing, beautiful and mad.
Monkeys trying to be stars
Monkeys carrying their Gods around
Lies and murder in the name of heaven
Seen it all before in the kindergartens of the Universe
It would be quaint if it wasn't so damned scary

I can’t listen and I can’t watch
I can see inside the machine
I can see the join! I can see the join.

Can you feel through my skin to me?
Can you see through my skin?
It's all here in my skin, you see
It's all here in my skin,
Here in my skin!

If you really look
It's a nursery book.

Asylum Satellite #1     

It said in the paper that 90% of the universe went missing this morning
Tonight I lost 90% of what was left..

They send us up here to get us out of the way
We worry, and they don't like what we say
Seems obvious to us what's right and what is wrong
But it seems that our opinions don't belong

La la la

So we're all up here together on Asylum Satellite 1
We're looking down together from Asylum Satellite 1

I can remember, back in '22
They changed the law - came knocking on the door
In that same moment, the broadband seemed to go..
Phones all dead. Gone dizzy in the head..

La la la

Next thing y'know
They put us on a transport to the stars
So we're orbitting the earth together
And, right now, slightly to the left of Mars
It's all so clear
We can see the madness perfectly from here.

Whatever is Wrong WitH You     

We need to talk.. about the way you've been behaving
We need to talk.. about the christmas lights in your clothes
We need to talk.. about the stranger in the kitchen
We need to talk.. about the scissors and the silver foil
I thank God..
You're so fabulously..
Odd

Whatever is wrong with you
Whatever is wrong with you
Whatever is wrong with you
Is so right for me
So right for me

We need to talk.. about the wedding cake, and the wet-suit
We need to talk.. about the policeman down the hall
You're truly strange
But it wouldn't do for us all to be the same

Whatever is wrong with you
Whatever is wrong with you
Whatever is wrong with you
Is so right for me
Just right for me

Whatever is wrong with you
Whatever is wrong with you
Whatever is wrong with you
Is so right for me
So right

Whatever is wrong with you
Is so right for me.

Especially True     

 I gazed upon you from the bleachers
A creature so foreign to me
With the stars and the stripes wrapped around you
Well how could I know there was England below?
I gazed upon you and I wondered
Cheerleader with hair of red flame
But that was first glance - I saw only the dance
And the distance from New York to Yorkshire

Truth's always stranger than fiction
And here it's especially true
Here in the home of Miss USA
What's a wide-eyed English boy going to do?

I never knew much about baseball
But I was quick with the US cliché
The crowd gave a roar and I don't know what for
The Major League rules get me so confused

Truth's always stranger than fiction
The cheerleader showed me around
You with the heart of the USA
And me with the spite of a small English town

Central Park after dark, is safe these days
Depending on the game you play..

America. House of Blues
What do you know?
Gimme the news.

America. Shock and awe.
Not any more.

America I'm ready for you
Tell me what to do
Tell me what to do
Tell me what to do.

Throw Me Out     

In our house
Two’s a crowd
You threw me out
Of my own life
You seem want to be a friend

In our house
Two’s a crowd
No more trouble
No more strife
You seem to be at your wits end
I tore apart my oldest friend

How my heart jumped
And may head thumped
As this hard earth
Came up and bumped
As I was dumped

And you threw me out
And you threw me out

Stood at the boundary
Without a clue
Unrequired
Losing you..
Testing your patience
Every day
Opening drawers
Getting in the way
 
And making a mess
While you’re trying to clean
I guess that’s my function..
Know what I mean..

Throw me out
Don’t worry babe
I’m recyclable
I’ll biodegrade
I’ll biodegrade

I’m recyclable
I’m recyclable

Older Than Me     

She's older than me
I don't care about them talking
Why can't they see
I've got all that I need

All the pretty young things
Seem suddenly boring
When I look in her eyes
All the world is behind

Every line on her on her face
Is a place and a memory
When our fingers touch
All the years fall away

Mistakes that she made
Hard lessons she carries
And still she's prepared
To tell me she'll stay

She's older than me
She's shown me a heaven
And we're gonna be
Over the hill
And far away
Far away
Far away

Half the World     

When you’re driving through the city
I hope all your lights are green
And the boy you choose to live with
Well, I hope he’s never mean

When you stop a while to think
I hope your thoughts don’t drag you down
When you’ve had too much to drink
I hope the room don’t spin around

You’re a girl half the world could fall in love with

Doo doo doo..

I hope you never get insomnia
And all your dreams are sweet
And that everybody smiles at you
When they see you on the street

I hope you think about me sometimes
But not enough to cause you pain
And someday that we can say we’re friends again

You’re a girl half the world could fall in love with
You’re a girl half the world could fall in love
Could fall in love with

Doo doo doo..

You’re a girl half the world could fall in love with
Half the world could fall in love
You’re a girl half the world could fall in love with

Real Tears for Sale     


Such a pretty girl - the anger didn't hide it  ..did it?
You shaved you head, pulled a face
Dressed yourself up without grace
It didn't hide a lifetime's damage
It didn't hide a lifetime's fears

Against your better judgement
'Put your whole self up for sale
The horror show when you were young
We couldn't wait to hear about it

But even whores don't kiss with tongues
Nonetheless I do believe you cried real tears

Real tears for sale!
Real tears for sale
Real tears for sale
Real tears, real tears for sale!

The wrong side of a lifetime's drinking
Is where it seems I'm coming from
I took my demons by the hand
Bent them, twisted them until they scanned and rhymed
And I took your love and all the hurt inside
Laid it out on the market stall
Agony at a knock-down price
"Reduced to clear!" is what I  cried

The wrong side of a lifetime's wishful thinking
Drove me here to pills and ale
Come and listen, come and listen to my tale

Come and get it. Come and get it.

Real tears for sale
Real tears for sale
Real tears for sale
Real tears for sale

All the hurt, All the secrets, All the damage, All the shame,
All the dirty cuts and bruises, All the rage, All the rage
All the rage.
Boo hoo.
