Track Name: So Easy
It’s so easy to forget
how you made a mess of it.
You didn’t want it all the bad
you set fire to what you had,
it’s so easy.
so easy.

You figured what the fuck
didn’t you baby.
You had it all worked out
what to wear, how it would be so easy.

So easy to pretend
that it would never happen again.
So Easy.

You held all the cards
didn’t you baby.
You took it all for a ride
sitting pretty, making it look so easy.
Track Name: Bottle (Magoo Mix)
Happy kinda

This is meant to be a song of joy for you.

Motorcycles, wind up toys
cowboy hats and polaroids.

This is meant to be a song of joy for you.

Lost your bottle, couldn’t think of what to say
lost your bottle, that’s ok.
Lost your bottle, couldn’t think of what to say
lost your bottle

Happy kinda
Track Name: Faces in a Passing Car
I carry my friends around with me
not that my shoulders are so wide.
More in the things they say and see
I am the sum of everyone.
I am a concertina doll
like the books and records on the wall.
Some are dark and some are light
some are here and some are gone.

Faces in a passing car
Faces in a passing car

You said I was talking in my sleep
right on through the night.
They’re all there in my dreams
like a midnight choir.
I can hear them in my ear
like a radio.
Some are loud and clear
some are awful quiet
some are here and some are gone.

Faces in a passing car
Faces in a passing car
Track Name: Falling Up
You show me, how it could
whenever I tumble in turmoil, you catch me.
I want to be that for you.

I’m falling up above the ground
I’m in the trees when you’re around.

Keep me connected like a kite.
reel me into you every night.
I want to be that for you.

I’m falling up above the ground
I’m in the trees when you’re around.
the world looks so much better.

You show me how it could be.
I’m falling up, I’m in the clouds,
I’m with the birds when you’re around
the world looks so much better.

I’m falling up above the ground
I’m in the trees when you’re around.
the world looks so much better.
Track Name: Like a Train
Like a train would a track, like a spy would a clue.
Like an itch would a scratch, I am missing you.

Like a drum would a beat, like a lock would a key
Like a cowboy would a horse, like a sailor would the sea.

I am missing you
missing you,
so I’ll go missing too.

Like a circus would a clown a boxer would a ring.
Like a lion would a roar like a puppet would a string

I am missing you
missing you,
so I’ll go missing too.

Like a song would a melody, like one and one would two.
Like the birds would the bees, I am missing you

I am missing you
missing you,
so I’ll go missing too.
Track Name: Broken
There’s a hole in this and a crack in that
some of the pages are torn and stuck together.

When it all seems broken, maybe it always was
When it all seems broken, maybe it always was
it’s just the way it feels today.

When the colours run, faded in the sun
and nothing is how you remember.

When it all seems broken, maybe it always was
it’s just the way it feels today.
When it all seems broken, maybe it always was
it’s just the way it feels today.

When it comes undone
and the voices whisper run
run run baby run.

When the lines are crossed, rhyme and reason lost
the wheels spin but nothing is turning.

When it all seems broken, maybe it always was
When it all seems broken, maybe it always was
it’s just the way it feels today.
Maybe it always was
Track Name: Dog With Wings
He's on the fly,
dog with wings.
Track Name: Sonnet For a Fool
Music sounds better when I watch you dance.
I’m not sure what to do with hands.

God looks after fools I should know.

Much as I try, much as I try, I will stumble.
If I could fly, if I could fly, surely I would.

God looks after fools I should know.
Track Name: Sing a Song
Sing a Song, full of minor chords.
some people say minor chords are sad.
I don’t really mind.

Got a lot of love, got a lot of love for you,
want to give you what I can
give you what and then some.

Come along, come along and see.

Tossed around deep inside the belly of a whale
is this the measure of a man
what I mean is never mind.

Come along, come along and see.

So take a walk around, we’re sure you’ll love the place
there’s room to find yourself
we hope you’ll stay a while.

Come along, come along and see.
Track Name: Frying Pan's Theology
Scene: On Monaro.

Dramatis Personae
Shock-headed blackfellow,

Boy, (on a pony).

Snowflakes are falling
gentle and slow.

Youngster says, "Frying Pan, 
What makes it snow?"

Frying Pan confident makes the reply,

"Shake 'im big flour bag
 up in the sky"

"What when there's miles of it surely you brag.

Who is there strong enough to 
shake such a bag?"

"What parson tellin' you,
Ole Mr Dodd,

Tell you in Sunday School?

Big pfeller God.

Him drive 'im bullock dray,
 then thunder go;

Him shake 'im flour bag,
 tumble down snow"
Track Name: The Long Way Around
The long way around.
Take the long way around.
Such a very long way.
