Track Name: Alice In Wonderland Syndrome
Alice In Wonderland Syndrome

A face at the end of my bed,
Looking at me it thinks I’m dead,
I’m trying to monopolise,
Every time I close my eyes.

Arms crossed I see the door,
Ten times what it was before,
Legs apart I sink into the ground,
Vermillion light seems to wrapped around.

I’m not dead…
…I am dreaming.

Fairground mirrors on the floor,
Distant objects I’ve never seen before,
All I’ll add to my wonderland,
Is a rabbit in a hat on my massive hand.

I’m not dead…
…I am dreaming.
Track Name: Thumper
Thumper

Jump out of your body,
Be a live wire,
Because now I wouldn’t piss on you,
Even if you were on fire.
This time last week,
You were my knight in shining armour,
Now I see you’re a freak,
You swallowed by pride,
And shit on my karma…

But the train’s coming, the brain’s humming,
I don’t care, no I don’t care if you,
Jump… Jump Thumper!
The train’s coming, the brain is humming,
I don’t care if you jump now,
Jump Thumper!

Now I might regret shouting,
About your little outing,
I’m sorry poured, I’m sorry I squealed,
You must be doubting,
Every single little thing I ever told you,
Is it all true?
Don’t be stupid, I am not that cool…
Track Name: Return Of The Dead Eyes
Return Of The Dead Eyes

I said I would not come back here again,
September would be the last time I came,
I said I would not come back if it’s all the same,
Now December’s looming I cannot refrain.

So here I am back here again,
Here I am, here I am, here I am.

I wonder how the bridge bridges the water,
I wonder how the angels bide their time,
I wonder how to satisfy my eternal disorder,
I wonder why days come more often than nights.

Well here I am, back here again,
Here I am, here I am, here I am.


If I didn’t need I wouldn’t be asking for a friend,
Where ever they may be it does not need to be the end,
If I cannot breathe my breath grows like cancer on the inside,
But on the outside it’s just the return of the dead eyes.

Here I am the return of the dead eyes.
Track Name: Vivid Dreams
Vivid Dreams

Vivid dreams, vivid dreams,
Why do I bolt for the door,
When reality’s not what it seems?
Tell them you’re not home tonight,
Been having one of your vivid dreams.

Vivid dreams, Vivid Dreams,
Take surrealism into your head,
And make it seem how reality feels.
Tell them you’re not home tonight,
Been having one of your vivid dreams.

Well I smell blood and I smell fear,
See everyone waking up in tears,
Not really in danger.
Tell them it’s OK tonight been having one of your vivid dreams.
Well I feel life and I smell death,
Please tell me I’m sleeping now,
Or this could be my saviour.
Tell them it’s OK tonight , tell them you’re having one of your vivid dreams.

Vivid dreams, vivid dreams,
It’s like I thought to myself extremely supreme
And tell them you’re not home tonight,
Having a real scream dream,
Vivid dreams, vivid dreams.
Track Name: Pull The Ladder Up, Jack
Pull The Ladder Up, Jack

Go hell for leather when I wind you up,
It’s not like it’s forever just sign your prenuptial,
Agreement – that sees me through,
Oh what an achievement,
That is me and you .

JACK – Each to their own,
SMACK – Look for number one,
CRACK – Pull the ladder up, pull the ladder up.


Spend some time with your friends ‘cos I’m moving on,
End times, friend times, they don’t last long.

JACK – Each to their own,
SMACK – Look for number one,
CRACK – Pull the ladder up, pull the ladder up.

I never thought we’d go this far,
I never thought we’d do this well,
Never guess we’d reach that start
Never knew we’d go to Hell.
Track Name: T. Dan
T. Dan

T. Dan, T. Dan,
Tears down to the river,
Tears down the white lines,
Of the Central Motorway,
Swan’s houses made of concreate,
Glass houses connect by short subway.

Progress, progress,
Don’t digress by way of heritage,
Means to and end by word of mouth,
This progression is paramount.

We are, we are to your fascination,
A humble crastination, an out dated way of life,
We are, we are to you imagination,
A source of constant frustration,
And we’ve messed up our lives.

But my life is my life,
And your life is your’s,
For all your floors,
We’re still on your side.

T. Dan, T. Dan,
If you come to opposition,
And what builds up then crumbles and falls,
T. Dan is a man,
Who can talk himself out of a room with four walls
(And fifteen floors).

We are, we are to your fascination,
A humble crastination, an out dated way of life,
We are, we are to you imagination,
A source of constant frustration,
And we’ve messed up our lives.

But my life is my life,
And your life is your’s,
For all your floors,
We’re still on your side.
Track Name: Ignore The Monsters
Ignore The Monsters

Get the little people out of my head,
You should hear what they just said to me,
No I don’t expect you to understand,
What it’s like in Martin Land,
But I’m not mad,
Well, it’s not bad.


Matter to me?
Attracted to me?
‘Cos you’re pretty?
Well, we’ll see.

Ignore the monsters, Ignore the nightmares,
Forget the faces, don’t join the wasters,
You’re with me now,
You’re with me now, ha ha!


Matter to me?
Attracted to me?
‘Cos you’re pretty?
Track Name: Throw
Throw

I’m hoisting a flag but it keeps on letting me down,
Back to the panic attack which keeps on coming around,
Don’t you think it’s stupid when two people are thinking the same thing,
(Throw me a rope and reel me in)
In many ways, I miss you.
(Throw me a rope and reel me in)

Well I know I’m glorious,
And I know I’m treacherous,
But I know that I will go far.
I know I’m senseless,
And sometimes ridiculous,
But you have to throw yourself far away,
Up, up and away!


Nineteen year old boys laugh at me in the corner of my eye,
(Throw me a rope and reel me in)
In many ways, I miss you but I don’t miss your lies.
(Throw me a rope and reel me in)

I know that you lied.
I can see it through your disguise.


Well I know I’m glorious,
And I know I’m treacherous,
But I know that I will go far.
I know I’m senseless,
And sometimes ridiculous,
But you have to throw yourself far away.

Don’t you miss me and those cosy little days?
Don’t you miss me and my wicked little ways?

Take me home now I think I’ve said too much,
Take me home now I think I’m a little drunk.
Take me home now I think I’ve said too much,
Take me, take me, I think I’m a little drunk.
Track Name: Pretty OK
Pretty OK

The ground’s gone to my head,
My left is my right instead,
I used to wake up in flowers,
I used to walk on air…
Yeah.

I imagined you to be so pretty,
In your own little way,
I think that you’re so pretty,
You’re pretty OK.

Well I’m, I’m alright,
Yeah I’m still OK,
I’m doing just fine,
With you out of my way.

So long - I can’t do the math,
I’m so lucky for what I have.
My life seems so indestructible,
Is that a bad thing to say?
Well I thing you’re so fuck-able,
You’re pretty OK.

Well I’m, I’m alright,
Yeah I’m still OK,
I’m doing just fine,
With you out of my way.
Track Name: Little Epiphanies
Little Epiphanies

The hens have stopped laying and the cows are lying down,
Well I stopped praying when nothing came around.
Hold that thought,
Hold it up for all to see.
Hold that thought,
Until you believe.
Hold that thought,
Hold it up for all to see.
Hold that thought,
You’re having an epiphany.


Now the motor’s stopped running and I’m burning my bridges fast,
Never thought of anything so cunning as building my bridges to last.
Hold that thought,
Hold it up for all to see.
Hold that thought,
Until you believe.
Hold that thought,
Hold it up for all to see.

Having an epiphany, an epiphany.
Hold that thought now,
Hold it tight; hold it for all to see your epiphany.
Having and epiphany now Honey, having an epiphany, an epiphany.


Holding court in my road is not down my street,
You can’t consign me to the statutes or history.

Hold that thought,
Hold it up for all to see.
Hold that thought,
Until you believe.
Hold that thought,
Hold it up for all to see.

Having an epiphany, an epiphany.
Hold that thought now,
Hold it tight; hold it for all to see your epiphany.
Having and epiphany now Honey, having an epiphany, an epiphany.
