Track Name: High John
I got a present
From an American friend
It was a candle
With the picture of a king
He said, "Put it by your bedside,
Light it at the right time,
Boy, you won't regret it."

And I say
Oh my my
Oh my my
I feel like High John the Conqueror's bringing me strength

I was worried
Felt she was ready to move
She was unsure of me
I had nothing to lose
I felt his hand through the fire
Take me away
Put me into her heart
Now all she can say is

Oh my my
Oh my my
I feel like High John the Conqueror's bringing me strength

John over John over John over John over John ...
Track Name: Blasted
Row row Jackaroe likes to get out and go
To the valley when the sun beats down
Down down down so the water won't drown him
Down down down on his northern town
Down down down where the shadows retreat
And with his hands held out he's closing his eyes
There's a broken mirror reflecting the sun that beats
Down down down on his northern town

Now come
Up up up where the memory's taking me
Out of the dark the music is raising me
Up up up
The music is saving me
Up up up above the burning ground

Shine down
Shine down
Shine down
Track Name: I Got Your Number
I got your number
Can I call you tonight
When the city's sleeping and the streets are quiet outside
I got your number
I hope you don't mind
Talking to me for a little while
'Cause I get so lonely I could die
When even the moon's cut off by the clouds in the sky

When the clouds burst open and the light comes in
See the old ship sail again
When the clouds burst open and the light comes in

Tell me
How how how do you do that magic
Who who who was it taught it to you
Why why why do you put it on me
Why why why am I the one that you choose
Track Name: Keep Coming Up
Hear the way the cold wind moans
Makes the room sound like there's ghosts
And like a ghost I lie here waiting
As if there's nothing else to do
As if my life's already through
I lie here listening to the wind

And she said, "I won't be calling again."
So I go outside
My mind just runs
I wish I was high as that lucky old sun
'Cause when it goes down
It keeps coming up

I'm a bird
I'm a bird
I'm a pretty little bird
But I've been grounded for so long
That I've forgotten how to sing
I forgot how to work my wings
So now I live like other men

And she said, "I won't be calling again."
So I go outside
My mind just runs
I wish I was high as that lucky old sun
'Cause when it goes down
It keeps coming up
It goes down
But it keeps coming up
It keeps coming up
Track Name: Same Old Satellite
In my life
So many things I try to hide
But I like
When I look up in the sky
See the same old satellite

Did you cry
When we said goodbye
I know I could reach you
But I'm too afraid to try

It's still the same
Still the same old satellite
Always the same
The same old satellite
It's still the same
The same old satellite
Always the same
The same old satellite
Track Name: Night Line
Night line engine
Carry me home
To the place where I belong
But do I belong there
Does that matter anyway

Night line engine
Don't break down
Or I might just turn around and walk away

Was it a dream
Was it the scars on her knees
Was it her eyes
That made it so hard to leave
Was it the lamplight shining
As we said goodbye
And I touched her for the very last time
While across the street
The laundry machines
Keep spinning till it all comes clean
And I'm trying to not come apart at the seams
As she covers her face
And turns her body away from me

I thought that I could keep it all straight in my mind
I thought that I could live in two worlds at the same time

But that was just my imagination
Running away with me
Guess it was just my imagination
Running away
Track Name: Black Lagoon
I tried to save her but the dog bit me too
Strange times man
Strange times
Now I'm going through some horrible changes
My body breaks
My heart explodes in five points of light

Now I'm sleeping in the black lagoon
I'm sleeping in the black lagoon

Don't speak
Don't wake me
Let the spirits in the night come and take me
Rattle into my veins
Let them shake me
Out of this life
Take my emotions away

Does she think of me
Does my woman remember
As she looks out of the window
Looks out in the fog
She's in the kitchen eating last night's dinner
Scrapes the meat off
And throws the bones to the dog

While I'm swimming in the black lagoon
I'm swimming in the black lagoon
Track Name: Staying Alive
The sound of the birds
And the big machines
Comes alive in the morning sun
But I don't mind anymore
I don't mind anymore
I've still got the rings in a wooden box
They never quite fit anyhow
But I don't mind anymore
I don't mind anymore

Well if I seem distant
If I've been out of touch
I'm a leaf on the water
I ain't doing much these days
I'm just staying alive
She'll be fine
Probably meet someone
I heard she moved out
Over the ocean
I'm just staying alive
I'm just staying alive

I can still see her dress and the hot air baloon
Seems so far from me now
But if she asks you how I've been doing
Tell her I'm staying alive
Took too long for us to understand
That most of what we had was gone
Now I'm just staying alive
I'm just staying alive
I'm just staying alive
