01. LET GO

You say it’s complicated and I say it’s ok
Your mind is constipated but you can’t deny what you haven’t tried
Hard work is over rated but you just don’t know it to let it flow

Let it go, take it easy, go slow, loose your mind
Come enjoy the ride

You say I am unambitious but I don’t need no stress
The will that drive the system will churn you up, you live intense
The world is madly driven
Changing gears is your decision

Let it go, take it easy, go slow, loose your mind
Come enjoy the ride

Take a look around you there is beauty everywhere
People waste their lives away in fear
Take a look around you people living just to work
Relax, kick back, stop trading precious years
Let go, look around you, go slow, loose your mind
Let go, look around, let it flow through your life

Lyrics Alex Cunningham, Jon Muecke, Andrew Muecke

02. BAD HAIR DAY

I went down to the cinema and sitting behind my seat
Were some screaming teens throwing snacks at me as I tried to look at the screen
I see red, I see red all through the movie

Then I left the cinema and I went to go shopping
At the checkout line was a nasty fight and it spilled all over to me
I see red, I see red, I’m going to lose it

Oh, it’s all good for the innocent
When there’s no one left to blame
With those bad hair day attitudes
They just blow me away

And then I walked past some people engaged in gossip
From magazines with celebrities and their broken dreams and their fantasies
And they’re jacked off, the people are judge and jury
And the hangman hangs

Oh, it’s all good for the innocent
When there’s no one left to blame
With those bad hair day attitudes
They just blow me away

I can’t stand here all alone
With this red exploding song
Someone help me!

Ah, I am feeling kinda tense right now, the heat is rising
Where is my pressure valve?
Oh-oh, I feel like an exploding doormat

Oh, it’s all good for the innocent
When there’s no one left to blame
With those bad hair day attitudes
They just blow me away

Ah, just breathe, three deep breaths now
You must be calm
In every day, in every way my life is getting better and better and better and better
I am my own teacher, I am my own guru

Lyrics Alex Cunningham, Jon Muecke, Andrew Muecke

03. HOOKS

Out of your arms, I miss you
I’m caught on your reel, cos it feels so real
You pull the line, call in your cast
I’m your first catch, middle & last

When I’m away, I want to be in your day
And in another place, it’s you I’m thinking of, …your face

Even if I’m not there, the hooks are all attached
I could up & cut the line, yet, home to you I’d fly
It’s if you love them, then set them free
So flying like a bird, I’m set to you & me

When I’m away, I want to be in your day
And in another place, it’s you I’m thinking of, …your face

Out of your arms, I miss you
I’m caught on your reel
Cos it feels so reel
You pull the line
I am forever caught on you reel because it feels so real

When I’m away, I want to be in your day
And in another place, it’s you I’m thinking of, …your face

Lyrics Jon Muecke

04. NO MONEY

Got no money in my pocket
Can’t seem to get what I want when I really want it

I went to a party
I lost my best friend then I finally found her
Velcroed to my boyfriend

Got no money in my pocket
Lost its flavour, lost its flavour
Change in place, change in pace
Blow out this club, cause I’m going to go out and have a good time on my own

I’m going to go wild
I’m going to go crazy

I left the party
Dancing to downtown
I fell into the wrong crowd
Got smashed, trashed and la-la-la-loud

Got no money, in my pocket
I’ll get what I want and I want more of what I’m getting now

Felt like flying, flying high
Got this feeling its dynamite
Went past the line
Got explosive, manic time
Cops are called
Helped down
Guns and tasers had me phase-ed
Arrested toxic texted, slammed in a cell

Bigger bender than intended!

Why did I ever I go out?
Why did I leave the house?
Tell me why

Shoulda known better
Its happened too many times
Repeating over and over
I always pay the price, I don’t learn

Got no money in my pocket….

Lyrics Alex Cunningham, Jon Muecke, Andrew Muecke

05. FADING AWAY

My memories of you are fading away
My memories of you are fading away
But my love won’t die, my love won’t die for you

I don’t hear your name much spoken these days
The pictures of you are fading away
But my love won’t die, my love won’t die for you

We cried
And we laughed so much and I never had something so beautiful
And you can’t hold on to something so beautiful

And life moves on, time moves on
I keep watching everything change

My memories of you are fading away
My memories of you are fading away
But my love won’t die, my love won’t die with you

The friends that we shared have drifted away
The person I was is changing each day
But my love won’t die, my love won’t die for you

We had it all
We had our time back then
And the love we shared
Allowed our spirits free

We had it all
If we could have our time again
I would tell you just how much you mean to me

My memories of you are wasting away
My visions of you are fading away
But my love won’t die, love won’t die for you

06. DON”T GET ME WRONG

Don’t get me wrong, if I don’t act to the letter
Don’t get me wrong cos I am right this time

Don’t get me wrong
If at times I can come home late
Don’t get me wrong
If at times lately I forget to communicate

Because it’s you I want
And it’s you I need

Why do you try to control the truth?
When we both should be able to share our views
Do you feel threatened by open expression?
Of all the sides of me

It’s true, think it through
Cos you’ve got yours and I have mine too
Yes it’s true, all points of view
Don’t let you fears stop seeing us through

Because it is you I want
And it’s you I need
And it’s you I want
And it’s you I need

Lyrics Alex Cunningham, Jon Muecke, Andrew Muecke

07. TAKE ME HIGHER

Wouldn’t know, couldn’t tell
That you would find me alone
Wanting me to stay each and every day
Come stay with me, please stay

Feeling lost, all alone
Then you found me, here
There was music playing loud
I was lonely in the crowd, you swayed with me
Come stay

We made love by the moonlight
And you brought me to my knees

You came and gave me pleasure
You come and filled my senses
You’ve taken me
You touched me deep
You take me higher

I feel like flowing in oceans
With the waves crashing on me
And you know that I’d bend over backwards
Just to see you flying free

You came and gave me pleasure
You come and filled my senses
You’ve taken me
You set me free
You take me higher

You came and gave me pleasure
You come and filled my senses
You’ve taken me
You touched me deep
You take me higher

Lyrics Alex Cunningham, Jon Muecke, Andrew Muecke

08. YOU

You got me running round in circles, outside squares
You drive me crazy, make me hazy, send me mad
You!

You talk of love and then dance in the summer rain
You got me tied up and down, cos you

Don’t you know you got me on the move and on the run
You’ve got me crying

You got me running round in circles, outside squares
You drive me crazy, make me hazy, send me mad
You got me running round in circles, outside squares
You drive me crazy, make me hazy
Break it down now!

Even though that I am on the run
Don’t you know that I really want you?
Even though that I am on the run
Don’t you know that I really need you?

You change mind and your tune then strike a chord
You got me tied up and down cos you!

You’ve got me lying and you’ve my crying, you’ve got me flying, you’ve got me falling in love

Hold me near
Hold me dear
Hold me close

Cos I need your touch and feel
I feel your heart more and more
And when I do I thank you
For you feel so near

Kiss me please
Our lips are speaking
Kiss me now

10. LIES

When I close my eyes, I saw you
As I woke I felt your smile
It made life oh so much better
Was glad you had come my way

Now I look in those eyes I see your pain
Hiding the dark inside
Can’t believe that we share something so special
For just a moment time stood still

You lie, you lie

You made and you broke the rules
Spun me around and played me for a fool
Those games that you played
I’ll turn and walk away

You lie you lie, you said you were mine
You lie you lie, you wasted my time

You must be joking
When you tell me that I have it wrong
What an honest chap eh?
You had me pulled and pushed and strung along
You say you are working late
You say you’ve got no breaks
How can you be trusted?
Well you just got good and busted

You lie you lie, you said you were mine
You lie you lie, you wasted my time

Liar, liar, such a trier
Liar, liar, lie

You lie, you lied, you lied to me!

Watch me walk out the door!

11. GREAT BIG WORLD

Come on baby, let’s talk this over
Hey it’s a great world, it’s a great big world
Hey it’s a great world, it’s a great big world

Loving has got me, feeling
Loving has got me, questioning
Loving has got me, weeping
You’ve got me hanging on

You know I ‘ve been searching for divine
In this great big world for, peace of mind

All the time, I am hearing, this and that
All the problems that I, seem to have

You know I’ve been hearing innuendo
You know darling it takes two to tango

I won’t believe you when you say we can’t work it out
I won’t believe you now you won’t work it out

Hey it’s a great big world

Loving has got me disillusioned
Loving has got me, hanging on

I won’t believe you when you say we can’t work it out
I won’t believe you now you won’t work it out

La, la, la

I can’t believe you when you say we can’t work it out
I can’t believe you now you won’t work it out

Hey it’s a great big world
Let’s sit down and work it out

Extra: BEST OFF MOVING ON (Documentary)

I’m trapped in a jam, not the sweet sounds of my dwelling
Busy streets & strange sheep parading
Detours brought me here, hope they can take me away
To a road I know, where the birds sit on the telegraph poles
More red lights than blue sky
When you look out the window something hits your eye

All I hope is the way this road is going to take me home
Like a stranger in a foreign place, I’ll be best off moving on

The trees are too few, too few & far between
Concrete jungle paved a paddock once I used to know
Picture pastures, gum nut babies in the trees
Laugh kookaburra, laugh kookaburra, all your friends see the joke

The sun sets over the plains, not in between the shadows of the city lights
Crickets sing a tune of night, all I see is dogs-a-honking & traffic-a-barking
Fast lanes occupy a part of everyone, I think I’ll try & slow drive my way home

I’ll take this left turn, past the bridge, well maybe right
On the horizon line I see a sign of better things to come
Setting-a-changing, homesteads nestled in the valley
Miles to go but I’ll need it all, just to get my mind back on the right track

See my soul feels much better, not one minute after leaving it all
Set my sights on the comforts to which I have come to know

Cool lemonade sitting on the verandah
Red dust clouds rise above a sunset sky
Fields of green lie beside an open forest
Peoples’ warmth can change a blue day back into bright
Well, I’ve just got to find the place & I’ll know I’ll be alright

Extra: NEAR (Single)

Hold me near, hold me dear, hold me close, chosen one
Cause I need your touch & feel, I feel your heart touch mine

And when I do, I thank you, for you feel so near
Kiss me please, our lips speaking, so kiss me now, I feel your power

As I feel you touch my heart, I need your love more & more
You are my love, I love your love, for you feel so near
I love you, love you true, I want you, want you true

Cause I need your touch & feel, I feel your heart touch mine
And when I do, I thank you, for you feel so near

As I feel you touch my heart, I need your love more & more
You are my love, I love your love, for you feel so near

Extra: ALONE (Single)

Wouldn’t know, couldn’t tell that you would find me
Feeling lost, all alone, then you found me here
Exciting my day, no, not alone
Hand to hold, holding you only & you
Wanting me only too, it’s something new, something true
It’s you that I want

Like a child new to school, you’d sit down with me & then
You’d smile my way, I’d want to play, each & every day
Please be this way

I wouldn’t know, you’d come to fill my senses
Couldn’t tell you’d teach my lessons
On loving life & living love, it’s you that I want

It’s you & me, we’ll walk & talk, sing & shout, dance all about

It’s you, I wouldn’t know, you’d come & fill my senses
Couldn’t tell you’d teach me lessons
On loving life & living love, it’s you

We’ll make love under the stars, join Venus with Mars
It’s you & I’m not alone, no, not alone

Lyrics Jon Muecke
