Track Name: Winning
Moon like a silver medallion swinging
Riding on a snow white stallion singing
Of everything I’ve ever done or seen
Everything I’ve ever done or seen
Room like an old black 45 spinning
Ain’t it good to know you’re alive and winning
Even if you’re basically alone
Even if you find yourself alone
Just walking around with a white moustache
In a friend of a friend’s house
Hardly a hint of the aftermath
Don’t ever wipe that smile off your mouth

Fell in love with it in summer
Feeling like the night was day
Fools are staying for the winter
Trying to keep the wolves at bay

Suger-coated shell with the heartbreak filling
Buying what we sell we can all make a killing
Money never knows where it’s been
Money never knows it’s history
Room like a star-spangled galaxy spinning
Ain’t it good to know you’re alive and willing
Even if you’re basically a clone
Even if you find that you’re a clone
Just walking around with a white moustache
In a friend of a friend’s house
Hardly a hint of the aftermath
Don’t ever wipe that smile off your mouth

Fell in love with it in summer
Feeling like the night was day
Fools are staying for the winter
Trying to keep the wolves at bay
Track Name: Droids
Silicone clone Mrs Jones by the swimming pool
Tanning in an energy field
Watching as she turns and picks a pink pineapple
And everything is perfectly unreal
Something in my chest, it flutters like a humming bird
Hanging in a baby blue sky
Expecting the return of all I understood
Is like waiting for fake flowers to die

When our memories are 1’s and 0’s
Still we swim in secret coves
And the laboured hearts
That they said were ours
Are the ones we share
With these friends of ours
These friends of ours

Staring through the dome at things we’ll never know
They warned us we would never go far
And this yearning to escape they say is just a phase
So baby, que sera sera
Spending another night alone polishing Mrs Jones
And swallowing the baby blue pills
Planets still revolve but none of us grow old
They’re just giving us more time to kill

When our memories are 1’s and 0’s
Still we swim in secret coves
And the laboured hearts
That they said were ours
Are the ones we share
With these friends of ours
These friends of ours
Track Name: Inside
When I met you girl
I could tell there was a lot
Now I know there’s so many things
That you wanted to keep
I began to recognise a shadow deep
And I know that it will always be

When I met you girl
I only wanted to get
Now I know there’s so much love
You would never let
I’ve seen a light that burns
With the blackest flame
And I know that I will never be

Endorfins won’t quell this pain
But the writing on the wall
Could make it easier to take
Hotel, motel, bed and breakfast on the shore
And you said you’d never seen
An English summer so raw

My girl now I’ve seen everything
And I know the way a mood can swing
These waves are turning into foam
And the crying of seagulls will lead you home

Endorfins won’t quell this pain
But the writing on the wall
Could make it easier to take
Hotel, motel, bed and breakfast on the shore
And you said you’d never seen
An English summer so raw
Track Name: Minefield
Let’s shave our heads
And hide behind a beard
Let’s make a bad decision
Let’s get the wrong idea
Let’s start a new religion
For all the fallen idols
Let’s get a terrible tattoo
That’s barely recognisable
We’ll lay our cards on the table
For all the world to see
What have we left to fear
We are our own worst enemies
Now let’s go to church
In a stolen car
Overdose on love
With a swollen heart

I know you find it so confusing
I feel exactly the same way
We plot a course across this minefield of dreams
At least that’s how it seems to me

Let’s join a movement
That aims to have no aims
We just cross our fingers
And forget our names
Let’s start a love affair
With someone that we cannot stand
Let’s mess with fates temptation
Let’s bite the feeding hand
We’ll leave the planet below
Spinning like a catherine wheel
In a rusty space shuttle
With a thousand frozen meals
Now let’s go to church
In a burning vehicle
‘Cos even if it hurts
Doesn’t mean it isn’t a miracle

I know you find it so confusing
I feel exactly the same way
We plot a course across this minefield of dreams
At least that’s how it seems to me
