Track Name: Southampton Tennis Club
Tell me have you ever been
Confused by history unseen ?
Friendship, envy, pain and love
Takes me back to that tennis club

Close your eyes
Count to ten
Remember something
From back then

The past is a dangerous place
Confusion with time and space

Tell me have you ever seen
A benefit to reminiscing ?
Admiration, sex and fun
Brings me back to that tennis club

Close your eyes
Count to ten
Remember something
From back then
Open your eyes
Count to three
Formative years
At the beach

The past is a dangerous place
Confusion with time and space

Uptown, downtown, your town, mine
Sweet and sour and sublime
Peace and hurt, regret – enough
To burn down that tennis club

Leave it alone…
Track Name: Action Determined By Moment
It starts with a word, it ends with a gun
Begins with a walk, concludes with a run
Genocide starts with the spoken word
One that most people claim to never have heard

It starts so small but ends up so big
Standing room only at this killer gig
It always starts with a colourful ad
Propaganda poster signifies things will go bad

Dare to believe
Presume to perceive
Stand up while others just leave
Bystander, upstander – which will you be ?


Dare to believe
Presume to perceive
Stand up while others just leave
Bystander, upstander – which will you be ?
Track Name: Head In The Clouds
One day I’ll only make time for those with positivity
In time I’ll finally decide to cut the others and be free

I never see you but I really want to
When we get together it’s like we’re apart never
I really need to make more time to talk to you
When we see each other we don’t talk to no others

My mind tells me to decline all responsibility
For giving in to the cardinal sin of accepting negativity

I never see you but I really want to
When we get together it’s like we’re apart never
I know you see through myths that don’t quite ring true
When we get together don’t waste a moment ever
Track Name: Life Flows
When you were born I knew I could die
The answer to the age old question “why ?”
Might seem empty, might seem insane
Good enough reason for my brain

You’re flowing into my body

I wonder where the river flows in this journey we call life
I wonder if the love we know continues to go to the ones we leave behind

The second I saw you I knew I was born
No you tell me there’s no reason to mourn
It all continues – but not like they say
More than one truth, more than one way

You’re flowing into my psyche

I wonder where the river flows in this journey we call life
I wonder if the love we know continues to go to the ones we leave behind
Track Name: I Was There But It Wasn't Me
Born out of it, take several hits, trying to live, wonder what’s with ?
Pie in the sky, landscape goes by, only just try, saying goodbye
Feeling quite numb, sometimes quite dumb, no rule of thumb, life on the run

Sitting at the table but I couldn’t eat
Staring at the pages not able to read
Hooked up to oxygen I couldn’t breathe
I was there but it wasn’t me

Heading west, caring less, just confess, don’t know best,
No sleep, couldn’t eat, cold feet, empty seat
Can’t go home, have to roam, please don’t phone, no comfort zone
Dissonant tone, destination unknown, Feeling alone with broken bones

Sitting at the table but I couldn’t eat
Staring at the pages not able to read
Hooked up to oxygen I couldn’t breathe
I was there but it wasn’t me
Track Name: Turbulence
Love is loud, so we shout, but we know what it’s about
Silence kills, quicker than pills, it nils the thrills
Things are right, on this flight, but once in a while
We hit turbulence but come through with a smile

If I said I didn’t make mistakes I would be lying (but you know I’m really trying)
If I told you I was never wrong that would be lying (But I’m telling you I’m trying)

So few breaks, many mistakes and lots of retakes
But we clean up messes, turn the stresses to successes
Things are great on this plane, we’re on the same page
So when the turbulence hits we focus on the good bits


If I said I didn’t make mistakes I would be lying (but you know I’m really trying)
If I told you I was never wrong that would be lying (But I’m telling you I’m trying)
If I said I didn’t mess things up once in a while (I’d be lying)
But sometimes life gets to you somehow (but I’m trying)

Stop looking for the perfect relationship
Cause I’m here to tell you it don’t exist
Scream and shout, put it about, but hold on tight
To the one you love, it’s a bumpy flight

If I said you didn’t make mistakes I would be lying (but I can see that you are trying)
If I told you you were never wrong that would be lying (But I know that you’re trying)
Track Name: Unconscious Accomplice
Your soul knows

An evolution of my thoughts
from conversations had
A revolution from the inside
somewhat tequila-led

I didn’t ask for you but then you came through
And now I can’t imagine my life without you

A Combination of events
and personality
A Reflection of the self
Can make us free

I didn’t know you until you came through
And now I wouldn’t want my life without you

Your soul knows

Bygones – be gone
Spirituality if you don’t believe in God
When they’re gone – be strong
A new religion in the form of a song

An evolution of my thoughts
A combination of events
A Rejection of the self
It can never end
Track Name: Heart On My Sleeve
What you see is what you get
Life’s too short for faking it
Heart on sleeve, danger zone – love me
Or leave me alone, leave me alone

Never leave anything left unsaid
Might say too much, but until I’m dead
I’ll go big or I’ll go home
Leave me alone, leave me alone

I’m the one who hugs you hello
Leave nothing to chance cause I told you so
Heart on sleeve, that’s how I roll – love me
Or leave me alone, leave me alone

Oh, this is how it is
This is who I am
Too late to change it now
And I don’t want to

Spend too long trying to change things about ourselves that we can’t change because nature made us that way
Then we beat ourselves up again and again over these things we can’t change because nurture made us that way, made us that way

What you see is what you get
Life’s too short for faking it
Heart on sleeve, danger zone – love me
Or leave me alone, leave me alone
Track Name: At Time Of Crisis
You’ll see, in time
Different places and faces but like minds
In time…

In the fullness of life
Several contexts and reflexes but like minds
In time…
Track Name: Oblivious
Living in this messed up world,
what else can one do ?
But thank goodness for you, thank goodness for you,
thank goodness for you and thank goodness for you

She calls others entitled but then asks “what about me ?”
The hockey dad living vicariously
A parent who’s mad because their kid has a cold
or sometimes has nightmares or doesn’t do what he’s told
Feel sorry for themselves because they have it so tough
Oblivious to others who’ve had more than enough
I really like lots of these people, you see
But their lack of understanding really gets to me

Living in this messed up world,
what else can I do ?
But thank goodness for you, thank goodness for you,
and thank goodness for you and thank goodness for you

A colleague complains about her incompetent maid
Another one about how little he’s paid
If your marriage is so bad then why don’t you act ?
Always upset but willing to go back
Passive-aggressive in-law shows off for fun
But fails our children one by one
I really like some of these people, you see
But their lack of sensitivity can get to me

Living in this messed up world,
Where the 98 is ruled by the 2
Thank goodness for you, and thank goodness for you,
and thank goodness for you and thank goodness for you
Living in this fucked up world,
what else can we do ?
But thank the gods for you, thank god for you,
thank mother nature for you, thank the universe for you
