Track Name: Given Half a Dance
Given Half a Dance lyrics by Andy Jackson

Crawl around on the ground, as if you're only one,
and having so much fun,
Stand tall against the wall, the rules number only two,
Basic nature and you,
Be brave, misbehave, the witching hour is three,
It's no catastrophe,
Brain aches from mistakes, that weren't there before,
What a fatal flaw,

Given half a dance so sooner or later,
We will routine the rest,
Given half a chance for worse or for better,
We always do our best,
Given half a dance so sooner or later,
We will routine the rest,
Given half a chance for worse or for better,
We always do our best,

ooooo, ooooo

We're alive so we strive, to stay up till five,
It's such a busy hive,
Hit the town, like a clown, with a full pack of six,
The usual dirty tricks,
Do a spin, that kinda thing, at least scoring a seven,
virtual heaven,
Beauty tries improvise, infinity toppled eight,
No more time to wait

Given half a dance so sooner or later,
We will routine the rest,
Given half a chance for worse or for better,
We always do our best,
Given half a dance so sooner or later,
We will routine the rest,
Given half a chance for worse or for better,
We always do our best,
Track Name: Where the Warp-zones Are
Where the Warp-zones Are lyrics by Andy Jackson

Just when I think i've got a handle on things to come,
A curve ball knocks me out in mid-flight,
Sifting through what remains of all i've done,
Make reality reunite,
Some plumber has plundered the secret caves,
No shadow of a coin left in sight,
As order is restored through a previous save,
The memory gets another rewrite,

I'm tripping, slipping, flipping, flailing around,
Swapping where the warp-zones,
I'm detailing, sailing, ailing, switching it round,
Plotting where the warp-zones,
Tripping, slipping, flipping, flailing around,
Swapping where the warp-zones,
I'm detailing, sailing, ailing, switching it round,
Plotting where the warp-zones are

There's a limit to the time I can spend in here,
All the enemies could re-spawn,
I'm tired of facing lessons repeatedly,
Star power up and I'm reborn,
But the next level likely has challenges,
Dangers for which I'm unprepared,
Blind to the disguise of the savages,
Facing fears as yet undeclared,

I'm tripping, slipping, flipping, flailing around,
Swapping where the warp-zones,
I'm detailing, sailing, ailing, switching it round,
Plotting where the warp-zones,
Tripping, slipping, flipping, flailing around,
Swapping where the warp-zones,
I'm detailing, sailing, ailing, switching it round,
Plotting where the warp-zones are
Track Name: Kiln
Kiln lyrics by Andy Jackson

Like hairy pottery,
Unglazed crockery,
Making a mockery of this clay industry,

I'm Developing cracks,
smooth me off and throw me in the kiln,
Apply sealing wax,
then pick me up and throw me in the kiln,
Grinding the axe,
smooth me off and throw me in the kiln,
Strap on the tax,
then pick me up and throw me in the kiln

Heat the rebel out of me,
Stamp social monopoly,
If we keep claiming to be free,
You'll need it notched up a degree

Developing cracks,
smooth me off and throw me in the kiln,
Apply sealing wax,
then pick me up and throw me in the kiln,
Grinding the axe,
smooth me off and throw me in the kiln,
Strap on the tax,
then pick me up and throw me in the kiln,
Track Name: My Bruised Ego
My Bruised Ego lyrics by Andy Jackson

I'm the ruler of my world, a land that can't be tamed,
Face off against resistance, someone must take the blame,
On un-sturdy foundations, my beds been built and made,
I'll construct my own struggle, dragging others into the game,
I'm not always right, it's hard to face that fact,
The maze fronts many corners, i'm not quickest to react,
I want to be special, but in most ways I'm the same,
The pain cause by desire, is stitched into my mane,

They're kicking me down, while i'm trying to get back up,
And that whimpering sound, is just my bruised ego
They're kicking me down, while i'm trying to get back up,
And that whimpering sound, is just my bruised ego
They're kicking me down, while i'm trying to get back up,
And that whimpering sound, is just my bruised ego

Some crocodile tears, for sympathy to find,
Lies across the eyeballs, render the truth blind,
Agenda's don't agree, no two minutes are the same,
Self respect gets scuppered, by ego's quest for fame

They're kicking me down, while i'm trying to get back up,
And that whimpering sound, is just my bruised ego
They're kicking me down, while i'm trying to get back up,
And that whimpering sound, is just my bruised ego
They're kicking me down, while i'm trying to get back up,
And that whimpering sound, is just my bruised ego
They're kicking me down, while i'm trying to get back up,
And that whimpering sound, is just my bruised ego
Track Name: Lucky Lampshade
Lucky Lampshade lyrics by Andy Jackson

Energy, roaming free, flitting from biology,
Connecting up the A to B, basic social circuitry,

Thinking free, the enemy, of the eccentric bourgeoisie,
By appointment of the referee, more illegal then ecstasy,

Worker bee, get working please, honey doesn't grow on trees,
They won't hear our tepid pleas, in their eyes we're the disease,

Harmony, for no money, soaking up vitamin d,
Danger to the economy, free needs no price guarantee,

E.S.P, E.S Please, break through with telepathy,
Hard to hide what you can't see, available on DVD,

Escapee, master key, hidden deep in the debris,
There's a way for you to be, invisible for all to see,

I strap on my lucky lampshade, to teach my ideas to behave,
Every time they start to shine out,
Track Name: Pondering
All weapons down,
Face the court of yourself,
And forgive everyone

All quarrels down,
What can be done

All metaphors down,
We work as one
as one

All calming down,
And pondering,
Such pondering,
Pondering,
Keep wondering,
Keep wondering,
Keep wondering
Track Name: 7 Billion
7 Billion lyrics by Andy Jackson

7 Billion people in the world, what percentage do you know?
There's a name with every woman, man, boy and girl,
Every one, a special show

7 Billion stories to be told, what percentage have you heard?
Keep your focus on the way you are involved,
In the theatre of the absurd

You must be brave, brave, brave, to go for what you really want
Or be a slave, slave, slave, to the ways of the chaos
You must be wise, wise, wise, and the live the way you really mean
Let the disguise, guise, guise, become a transparent screen

7 Billion thoughts occurring now, what percentage will be shared?
Imagination shows no signs of running out,
face our future unprepared

7 Billion chances to connect, what percentage will you find?
Obey the natural law of cause and effect,
the rest is just a state of mind

You must be brave, brave, brave, to go for what you really want
Or be a slave, slave, slave, to the ways of the chaos
You must be wise, wise, wise, and the live the way you really mean
Let the disguise, guise, guise, become a transparent screen
Track Name: Stump the Fee!
Stump the Fee! lyrics by Andy Jackson

Billions of years of ice and stone,
Countless lifeforms now used to power cars,
The World is our collected home,
Is it really wise to keep fracking her?
When the earth quakes, our structures break,
And countless loss devourers,
whose gonna pay? whose gonna pay?

They're looking to you,
Then they're looking to me,
And they're expecting us to stump the fee,
While they poison the sky,
And defile the sea,
They are turning to us to stump the fee,

So crash the false economy,
Pull public service funds to save some bacon,

Excess forestry, and fisheries,
Wasting what's been plundered,
For an industry, that stays blame free,
Whilst destroying our home,
How can we allow, the selling out,
Of all our natures wonder,
To a tiny few, it's a vicious screw,
That we won't stand for,

But they're looking at you,
Then they're looking at me,
And they're expecting us to stump the fee,
While they poison the sky,
And defile the sea,
They're still expecting us to stump the fee,

Still they're looking at you,
And they're looking at me,
Forcing us all to stump the fee,
For they're sloppy mistakes,
And inefficiency,
They are expecting us to stump the fee,
Track Name: Kids Play Games
Kids Play Games lyrics by Andy Jackson

Kicking castles in the sand, crying to get what we demand,
Blanked tents of nighttime land, play time never goes as planned,

Sibling war horns sounding, curfew being called,
Screams of fleshy slapping and pigtails being pulled,
Nostalgic reminders of youthful sweet revolt,
Financhalised desires bring it screeching to a halt,

Kids play games, we were once the same,
Kids play silly games
Kids play games, we were once the same,
Kids play silly games

Really what's the difference?
We're all still out to play,
The imagined existence,
Never really ever goes away,

Sail the grassy seas, on rafts of broken fence,
Build homes in the trees, as a last port of defence,
Scale sofa mountains, to save the princess fair,
And fight the evil demons that are not really there,

Kids play games, we were once the same,
Kids play silly games
Kids play games, we were once the same,
Kids play silly games

When playtimes over,
There's always time to rest,
Build the strength back up,
So we can go round again, again, again, again

Kids play games, we were once the same,
Kids play silly games
Kids play games, we were once the same,
Kids play silly games
Track Name: Equality
Who knows best? Tell me how,
Sit the test, Work it out,
Calculate, Or there abouts

Take the total of the things that you wish you had,
And divide it by the moments of which you're glad,
Multiply it by your dreams of reality,
Still the answer never equals equality

Add the questions that will yield you a healthy grow,
Then subtract a tiny fraction for what you know,
Set the instruments to our unique frequency,
Still the answers never equal equality

Halve the outcomes that clearly will never set,
Then collate against the problems you'll likely get,
Count the waves from a boat on the luna sea,
Still the answer never equals equality

Solve the riddles that are tangled into your soul,
Find a balance and then set it to cruise control,
Keep questioning the quivers in energy,
And the answers might just equal equality

Fight or flight, Wrong or right,
Choice to choice, Plough or plight

Take the total of the things that you wish you had,
And divide it by the moments of which you're glad,
Multiply it by your dreams of reality,
Still the answer never equals equality

Add the questions that will yield you a healthy grow,
Then subtract a tiny fraction for what you know,
Set the instruments to our unique frequency,
Still the answers never equal equality

Halve the outcomes that clearly will never set,
Then collate against the problems you'll likely get,
Count the waves from a boat on the luna sea,
Still the answer never equals equality

Solve the riddles that are tangled into your soul,
Find a balance and then set it to cruise control,
Keep questioning the quivers in energy,
And the answers might just equal equality
Track Name: Unbelievably Attractive
Unbelievably Attractive lyrics by Andy Jackson

You are attractive,
Your thoughts are attractive,
That's why you've attracted all that you do,
Be more proactive,
A positive perspective,
Is far less expensive in the long run,

You are the master, of your own disaster,
Your state of mind, determines what you'll find,
You're the creator, and the dictator,
Mental manipulator, a powerful mind,

Slowly, ease yourself in to it,
Come on you can do it,
Given time you will get through this,
Only, you can make the changes,
Avoid looming dangers,
The future's full of distant strangers

You are attracting,
Your thoughts are attracting,
You're just reacting like you didn't,
Be more adaptive,
Not so overreactive,
Your mind is expansive, more then you know

You are the master, of your own disaster,
Your state of mind, determines what you'll find,
You're the creator, and the dictator,
Mental manipulator, a powerful mind,

Slowly, ease yourself in to it,
Come on you can do it,
Given time you will get through this,
Only, you can make the changes,
Avoid looming dangers,
The future's full of distant strangers

Slowly, ease yourself in to it,
Come on you can do it,
Given time you will get through this,
Only, you can make the changes,
Avoid looming dangers,
The future's full of distant strangers

oooh, oooh, ooh, ooh,

Slowly, ease yourself in to it,
Come on you can do it,
Given time you will get through this,
Only, you can make the changes,
Avoid looming dangers,
The future's full of distant strangers

Slowly, ease yourself in to it,
Come on you can do it,
Given time you will get through this,
Only, you can make the changes,
Avoid looming dangers,
The future's full of distant strangers
Track Name: Everything is Okay (Live)
Everything is Okay lyrics by Andy Jackson

Everything is okay, so the headlines say,
Or am I just caught in a day dream,
Swimming in harmony, we're all rich and free,
And always willing to make the time,
Sharing our inner souls, our blood and pulse,
Working to make everyone feel fine,

As the google flies, over mountain tree top
Fear laced lullabies from the media non stop
Through my daydream eyes, could the headlines,
maybe one day say, Everything is okay

Lost in a day dream,
We have the capability, some humility,
To achieve anything to which we put our mind,

As the google flies, over mountain tree top,
Fear laced lullabies from the media non stop,
Through my daydream eyes, could the headlines,
Ever really say, Everything is okay

We all know deep down,
That we can work this all out,
And be what being is all about,
Stand our ground flexibly,
All self reflectively,
Just being human beings

And as the google flies, over mountain tree top,
The fear laced lullabies from the media non stop,
Much to my surprise, day dreams give way,
And everything is okay,
Everything is okay,
Everything is okay
