Track Name: Monkey Tree (New Song, 2016 - Indie / Alternative Music)
So you think that you’ve got to be at the top of the monkey tree
Have a go ‘cause it ain’t that tough if you’re lies get big enough
You shouldn’t tell me anything that’s not the truth
I might not like you anymore

So you lie and you lie and you keep on lying to me
What a lie, what a lie
I can tell when you lie so I say
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Itch my chin

Do you think that you’ll ever be a bigger man or better than me?
If you make up all this stuff, I don’t care you can go get stuffed
You thought that you could get away with everything
I didn’t like you anyway

So you lie and you lie and you keep on lying to me
What a lie, what a lie
I can tell when you lie so I say
Why’d you lie?
Big fat liar

Solo

You’ll just get caught out in the end
And find it’s something you regret
I think that it is time ‘cause you have crossed the line
Are you a liar or a friend?

So you think that you’re gonna be at the top of the monkey tree
If you make up all this stuff and your lies get big enough
You thought that you could get away with everything
I didn’t like you anyway

So you lie and you lie and you keep on lying to me
What a lie, what a lie
I can tell when you lie so I say
Yeah you lie and you lie and you keep on lying to me
What a lie, what a lie
I can tell when you lie so I say
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm
Chinny chin
Why’d you lie?
Track Name: Robot In The Sky (New Song, 2016 - Indie / Alternative Music)
Flying backwards through the air
Feel the wind rush through my hair
Gazing up into the sky
Small reflection in my eye

I don’t care just where I’m going wrong
Wave my arms and sing a happy song

Swinging round from tree to tree
I’m so happy I can’t see
I’m a robot in the sky
Till I fall then no one flies

Chorus

Solo

Chorus
Track Name: The Great Divide (New Song, 2016 - Indie / Alternative Music)
I fall down, scrape my knee
Jump straight back to my feet
I will find the strength to carry on
I have to make you see
Just what you mean to me
I will brighten up your dullest day

When you cry I’ll wipe away your tears
Hold you long into the night
If you fall, you’ll fall into my arms
I will help you cross the great divide
The great divide

Lamp like glow of your smile
Gaze on it for a while
You set my heart on fire when you arrive

Chorus

If you’re looking for a friend
I’ll stick with you till the end
I will be there at your side
Help you cross the great divide
The great divide

Ooh
Track Name: One Day (New Song, 2016 - Indie / Alternative Music)
One day I’m going to go away
And take an extended holiday
But I never seem to find the time
I always have to stay behind but I know
One day I’m going to go away

One day I’m going to sail a ship
Into the sea and let it drift
With my compass that is pointing south
Maybe it’s because my name is Ralph I’m Ralph Mouth
One day I’m going to take a trip

Instrumental

One day I’m going to jump a train
And take it all the way to Spain
Where the oranges are always free
Step out in the sun and get a nice red sun burn
One day I’m going to go away
Track Name: All Roads Will Leave Me To You (New Song, 2016 - Indie / Alternative Music)
All roads will lead me to you
To turn into dust and out of view
And when it comes I swear I won’t be scared
I won’t be scared
These roads are winding and new
I’ll follow them wholly and true
I’d love to take them everywhere they go
To where they go

It’s the way I’m feeling lately
It’s just the way I’m feeling lately
It’s the way I’m feeling lately
Down, down, down, down, down

I hear the word coming through
Kick out the old here’s the new
To have the truth and hold it in our hands
Then it began

Chorus

Looking to the light
Searching for a dream
Flashed across my eyes
Started making sense to me

All roads will lead me to you
All roads will lead me to you
All roads will lead me to you
All roads will lead me to you
Track Name: For Your Love (New Song, 2016 - Indie / Alternative Music)
Woke up this morning
Looked to the sunrise
Time’s like a freight train
Passes so quickly
It would be simple
It would be easy
If you would give me your love

Sat at the table
Thinking things over
Nothing is the same
Everything’s changing
I would be ok
I would be alright
If you would give me your love

For your love, for your love
For your love, for your love
Your love, your love

Tears in your minds eye
Makes things distorted
Climbed to a great height
Now we are falling
Things would be ok
Things would be just fine
If you would give me your love

Chorus

Instrumental

Chorus x 2
Track Name: Drunken Swagger Stomp (New Song, 2016 - Indie / Alternative Music)
Something’s getting up my nose and make me sneeze
Sometimes everyone’s so very hard to please
Do that drunken swagger stomp
Sing that little song and we’ll all dance

People realise we’re just like flies
People realise we’ll live and die

I can see you don’t look that happy when you’re down
I can be anything you want that’s not around
Do that drunken swagger stomp
Try to right the wrong it’s your best chance

People realise we’re just like flies
People realise we’ll live and die

Instrumental

Do that drunken swagger stomp
Try to right the wrong it’s your best chance

People realise we’re just like flies
People realise we’ll live and die

So live for
Just live for
Yeah live for
Just live for love
Track Name: Why Do We Have To Grow Old? (New Song, 2016 - Indie / Alternative Music)
Long ago I don’t know when
You was Dracula I was Tarzan
I saw you all come to life
In this world you’re all around me
I have been told the man upstairs knows all
This hurts so bad
So I think he should tell me

Why do we have to grow old?
Why do we have to leave home?
It shouldn’t have to be this way
I’m hoping that we’ll meet again

Dreams float like clouds in the sky
Tried to touch them they were too high
I have been told
The man upstairs knows all
This hurts so bad
So I think he should tell me

Why do we have to grow old?
Why do we have to leave home?
It shouldn’t have to be this way
I’m hoping that we’ll meet again

Instrumental

Why do we have to grow old?
Why do we have to leave home?
It shouldn’t have to be this way
I’m hoping that we’ll meet again
Track Name: All The Things That You Do (New Song, 2016 - Indie / Alternative Music)
I want to go to a little place in the middle of the world
Where everybody looks at me the way that you do
And when I’m caught in your clear blue eyes I’m in another place
I’m humbled by your grace and all the things that you do

When we met I was a stray
But you showed me that there was another way
Now our footsteps always rhyme
Our lives became entwined
I guess it was a sign

Chorus

Late at night when I’m asleep
You will come to me invading all my dreams
When I wake you’re by my side
It makes me want to smile
‘Cause I’m so glad you’re mine

Chorus

Instrumental

Chorus
Track Name: Summer Twilight (New Song, 2016 - Indie / Alternative Music)
Something’s gone and changed
It’s not like yesterday
I won’t be the one to take the blame
Ran away from work
My job was like a curse
Jumped into my car and hit reverse

Now the nights are drawing in and it is getting colder
But the memory remains
Of the summertime when we just sat round being lazy
I wish we had another day

Where did it go wrong?
I blinked and it was gone
Left me with this summer twilight song
Time to rearrange
It’s abstract and it’s strange
Put another picture in the frame

Now the nights are drawing in and it is getting colder
But the memory remains
Of the summertime when we just sat round being lazy
I wish we had another day

Solo

Now the nights are drawing in and it is getting colder
But the memory remains
Of the summertime when we just sat round being lazy
I wish we had another day
Just a day
Oh a day
Yeah a day
Track Name: Trip (New Song, 2016 - Indie / Alternative Music)
What a waste, what a waste, what a waste of time
How we spend, how we spend, how we spend our lives
Get a house, buy a dog, tell the kids not to fight
Now you got, now you got, now you got it made
But you’re still, but you’re still, but you’re still afraid
Watch the clock as the seconds tick away

There’s just one problem
It’s not my trip
There’s just one problem baby

Can you hear, can you hear, can you hear that sound
As the kids, as the kids, as the kids freak out
Hit the switch, pull the cord and we’re going down

There’s just one problem
It’s not my trip
There’s just one problem baby
There’s just one problem
It’s not my trip
There’s just one problem baby

Solo

There’s just one problem
It’s not my trip
There’s just one problem baby
There’s just one problem
It’s not my trip
There’s just one problem baby
Track Name: Slipping Away
You CHASE THE DRAGON but you can’t keep up with it
It’s out of reach even if you jump for it
You’ve got a lot of friends
Fair weather friends
You spend your whole time chasing after it
Until you see that your life’s turned into SHIT
You wasted all your time
All your PRECIOUS TIME

I’ll see you after the war
I heard they AMPUTED your SOUL
Your SHELLSHOCKED bones say it all
You woke up late in the day
And found your life SLIPPING AWAY
You lose a little piece everyday
You’ve got to stop SLIPPING AWAY

You grew up DREAMING of CELEBRITY
You wound up WORKING in a FACTORY
It didn’t go to plan
So what’s your BLOODY plan?
To drown yourself in a pool of self pity
As wide and vast as the oceans and the sea
It’ll claim your soul
Claim your WRETCHED SOUL

But if you LIVE THROUGH THE WAR
I hope you find that you can grow
A little seed placed in your soul
You’ve got to see through them all
To stop your life SLIPPING AWAY
You lose a little piece everyday
You’ve got to stop SLIPPING AWAY

Instrumental

But if you LIVE THROUGH THE WAR
I hope you find that you can grow
A little seed placed in your soul
You’ve got to see through it all
To stop your life SLIPPING AWAY
You lose a little piece everyday
You’ve got to stop SLIPPING AWAY
You’ve got to stop SLIPPING AWAY
Track Name: It's Hard When You Hate Yourself (New Song, 2016 - Indie / Alternative Music)
Yes it is hard when you hate yourself
Oh yes it’s hard when you hate yourself
Oh yes it’s hard when you hate yourself so hard
But you are far from the shallow crowd
Yes you are far from the shallow crowd
Yes you are far from the shallow crowd so far

Now you’re locked up indoors
Wrestling with your thoughts
If you submit to them
Grumble that you’re bored

And it is hard when you hate yourself
Oh yes it’s hard when you hate yourself
Oh yes it’s hard when you hate yourself so hard
But it is good not to be a sheep
Oh yes it’s good not to be a sheep
Oh yes it’s good not to be a sheep so good

Now you’re locked up indoors
Wrestling with your thoughts
If you submit to them
Grumble that you’re bored

Solo

Oh darling, say you’ll never drop me
They gave me such a rotten deal
Oh darling please don’t say I bore you
This is what I feel

Won’t let this world get one over me
Won’t let this world get one over me
Won’t let this world get one over me no way
But it is hard when you hate yourself
Yes it is hard when you hate yourself
‘Cause it is hard when you hate yourself so hard
La la la la la la la la
Track Name: I Don't Need A Guiding Light (New Song, 2016 - Indie / Alternative Music)
I don’t need a guiding light to help me through the day
I don’t need a guiding light to help me find a way

So you think you’ve got it bad
Have I got news for you
There’s always someone else
Who is crawling up the walls
Trying to catch their breath
Trying to find the words

They don’t need a guiding light to help them through the day
They don’t need a guiding light to help them find a way

Instrumental

Got my back against the wall
For sticking my neck out
Trying to get heard
Guess you’ll follow me here soon
Stick your neck out too
Follow every word

We don’t need a guiding light to help us through the day
We don’t need a guiding light to help us find a way
We don’t need a guiding light to help us through the day
We don’t need a guiding light to help us find a way
Track Name: Overgrown Monkeys (New Song, 2016 - Indie / Alternative Music)
I know that I am not all of the things I thought
I would once grow up to be
Sat as the Earth spins round watching the sun go down
Then I just laugh at the moon
I’m gonna keep with the coloured light even though I am losing sight
There are still things I’m dying to say
Following it round the garden excuse me I beg your pardon
The words just flow right out of my mouth

This is this is this is the time to tell
A tale a tale a tale about people
Overdeveloped by 30 million years
We’re overgrown monkeys

This is who I am and you can’t change it but I can
And don’t you doubt it, and don’t you doubt it
Follow me today we’ll all go out and wreck our brains
I hope you like it, I hope you like it

I’ve been surveying you watching you change your hue
On the veranda at night
Show me a way to go because I do not know
What I’m supposed to do now
I’d like to float in your golden light being a part of you tonight
Your colours shine but refuse to fade
Following you round the garden excuse me I beg your pardon
The words just won’t come out of my mouth

Bridge

Chorus

Do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Ba, Ba-I-a
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Ba, Ba-I-a
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Track Name: Lose Myself (New Song, 2016 - Indie / Alternative Music)
If you hold back then you can’t be free
If you go forth might get lost at sea
But don’t get lost in this purgatory
This wicked world it is driving me

I just can’t help when I lose myself
Why can’t I just keep my cool?
I just can’t help when I lose my head
Why can’t I just be like you?

So we set sail at the crack of dawn
When you looked back well it all was gone
But have no fear ‘cause it won’t be long
Till you are free from your world weary song

Chorus

I can’t remember my name
Maybe it’s ‘cause I have lost my way
If I appear at your door
The years will fall
Years will fall
Years will fall away

Chorus

Solo

Chorus
Track Name: There's No Such Thing As Forever (New Song, 2016 - Indie / Alternative Music)
Well I can’t keep waiting forever
As the day turns into the night
And the candles drawing me closer
It’s burning and flickering so bright

But I won’t take no for an answer
And I won’t be pushed to the side
‘Cause there’s no such thing as forever
I’ve waited and I can’t wait no more

I’ve got to find a key to the door
I’m tired of waiting in for you to call
I’ve got to find a way to your heart

Well I won’t keep living forever
Got to get myself into gear
‘Cause the sands of time they are shifting
And I’m drifting into another year

I’ve got to find a key to the door
I’m tired of waiting in for you to call
I’ve got to find a way to your heart
There’s no such thing as forever

Instrumental

I can’t take no more
I’ve got to find a key to the door
I’m tired of waiting in for you to call
I’ve got to find a way to your heart
There’s no such thing as forever
There’s no such thing as forever
Track Name: Spinning Round The Sun (New Song, 2016 - Indie / Alternative Music)
This fear that runs your life
Won’t stand the test of time
For you were always free
So stand your ground don’t flee

I’m loving every day in every single way
I love it as the time shifts slowly
Everyday’s a gift as precious as a stone
Spinning round the sun
Spinning round the sun

If you could find the words
Your voice might just be heard
And you will make me proud
You start to sing out loud

I’m loving every day in every single way
I love it as the time shifts slowly
Everyday’s a gift as precious as a stone
Spinning round the sun
Spinning round the sun

Solo

All these things that you have seen
Captured in a memory
See the future up ahead
In it you are everywhere

I’m loving every day in every single way
I love it as the time shifts slowly
Everyday’s a gift as precious as a stone
Spinning round the sun
Spinning round the sun
So if you love your days you’ve got to find a way
To share them with your one and only
Everyday’s a gift as precious as a stone
Spinning round the sun
Spinning round the sun

Spinning round the sun
Spinning round the sun
Spinning round the sun
Spinning round the sun
Track Name: Give Up The Blue Sky (New Song, 2016 - Indie / Alternative Music)
When you’re born to the world
You’re a clean sheet of paper
You are yet to have sinned
But the world’s gonna make you

People the lines on the map they divide us
It poisons your mind like a virus
We’ve got to make amends

Or we can just give up the blue sky
Give up the blue sky
Give up the blue sky
Give up the blue sky

As the dust comes to rest
It will all become clearer
And for those of us left
There’ll be nothing to fear

People I don’t need to see to believe it
We’ve all got to give to receive it
Go tell it to your friends

Or we can just give up the blue sky
Give up the blue sky
Give up the blue sky
Give up the blue sky

Solo

People it’s time to awake from your slumber
Before we find out we’ve gone under
Let’s bring this to an end

Or we can just give up the blue sky
Give up the blue sky
Give up the blue sky
Track Name: How We Tried (New Song, 2016 - Indie / Alternative Music)
I thought you superficial and vacuous inside
I only want to help you and heaven knows I’ve tried
Must I forever wander the desert that’s so dry
And stretches out forever in your mind

But I won’t lie
I won’t lie

The deeper that I’m going the darker that it gets
To pull you from the fire would be to make it correct
I always will remember the look that filled your eyes
I thought that I could help you if I tried

But I won’t cry
I won’t cry
No I won’t cry
I won’t cry

If I extract the stigma from the tale
This apple might taste better
And though I know good sense will not prevail
I’ll remember you like you want me to

And how we tried
How we tried
Yes, how we tried
How we tried
