DARK SENSATION

alone
heading home
four wheels attached to the fields of wonder

at night you race

almost close behind you
all the ?? tastes like cauliflowers (?)

a dark sensation
out here
I'm not supposed to be alone

all alone
in a car
four wheels attached to ???

then the familiar is almost behind you
that's when you see a dark sensation

? not supposed to be

DEAD PICTURES

and they took him to the river
just to show him where the accident happened
where they lost all of the children
never see their faces again

dead pictures sitting in my hand
never see their faces again
and it's...
doesn't anybody care about the young and the innocent
and why...?

and they took him to the places
where they had spent some time
and they asked him lots of questions
about what happened here
? times

doesn't anybody care about the young and the innocent
and why they're always...

dead pictures
floating in the mud
dead pictures

dead pictures
on the wall
never see his face again
and it's...
dead pictures floating in the water

doesn't anybody care about the young and the innocent
and why they're always...

SNAPPER AND THE OCEAN

snapper and the ocean
a million miles away
can't think of anything, anything today
but when you touch my hand
well I calm right down
start thinking bout the fish that spawn
and all the horses that ride(writhed?)

everybody's got a wild vein

must have been singing a song
waiting for the message
must've been singing a song
waiting for the message

when you touch my hand
well, I calm right down
start thinking of the fish that swim
and all the horses that ride

everybody's got a wild vein

snapper and the ocean
million miles away
can't think of anything, anything today
when you touch my hand
then I calm down
start thinking bout the fish that swim
and all the horses that ride

everybody's got a wild vein

WHAT ARE YOU THINKING

what are you thinking?
what are you doing?

what do you think about when you're alone
in your thoughts?

?
?
and you are sure to tell me where to get in

what are you thinking?
what are you doing?

my only ?
someone else's children
really(reading?) someone else's pervy mind (?)

what are you thinking?
what are you doing?

HOT SUN

in the fields in the hot sun
a pound of wisdom turns to dung

the fortress(tortures?) no survivors
stop the engine
I think it's time to run

how could you come here
with your ugly leather boots
waving a bible

. . .

in the fields in the hot sun
a pound of wisdom turns to dung

take the fortress and leave no survivors
stop the engine
I think it's time to run

how could you come here
with your ugly leather boots
?
?

in the fields in the hot sun
a pound of wisdom turns to dung
take the fortress and leave no survivors
stop the engine
I think it's time to run

in the fields in the hot sun
a pound of wisdom turns to dung
take the fortress and leave no survivors
stop the engine
I think it's time to run

I DON'T KNOW

I don't know if the world's gonna last that long
and I don't know if the world's gonna last that long

I don't know if the world's gonna last that long
and I don't know if the world's gonna last that long

I don't know if the world's gonna last that long
and I don't know if the world's gonna last that long

I don't know if the world's gonna last that long
and I don't know if the world's gonna last that long

COOL DRY SPOT

? the desires

yeah, how many times have I laid down with you
and thought about somewhere else

find some cool dry spot

and think about you
till the day is done

yeah cool dry spot

yeah, we go out and we stay in

yeah, how many times have I looked at you
and thought about someone else

I'm gonna jump on a train
I'm gonna sail the sea
find some cool dry spot
and sit in the sun and think about you
till the day is done

yeah, cool dry spot

RAIN

if rain's what you wanted, baby
then you can have it all
but the ?

it's ?
the edge of the plain
and ?

people survive
but flowers ?

yeah, moving round and round
your eyes moving round and round

if it's rain that
you've got it, baby
and the things you need are the worst of all
yeah, trawling in a sea of love
be careful what you catch

if it's rain that
you've got it baby
but the ? worse than ?
if it's rain that
you've got it baby
yeah, you ?
