Track Name: Great Big Old World
bones by the road in the sun
that’s what we are, what we are
and all these mistakes we have made
will wash away, wash away

great big old world, great big old world
and it doesn’t stop for anyone

broke like a spoke in a wheel
what goes around comes around
and all we think is so real
is it ever there, is it ever there

great big old world, great big old world
and it doesn’t stop for anyone

someone said, watch your head
you could loose it round here
someone said

bones by the road in the sun
that’s what we are, what we are
burning up like a star
here and gone, here and gone

great big old world, great big old world
and it doesn’t stop for anyone
Track Name: Fortune
she wraps her arms around you
comes on like a friend
you love her cause she’s beautiful
and she promises you everything

I don’t want to let her get too close to me
I don’t want to let her get a hold of me

she sits on a bubble
she only wears one shoe
flicks a finger in your eye
smiles and scatters you

I don’t want to let her get too close to me
I don’t want to let her get a hold of me

there’s nothing that she doesn’t dare
nothing she won’t do
there’s nothing that she doesn’t dare
nothing she won’t do

she has my number
and I know she’ll use it one day soon
snap me like a rubber band
send me sailing to the moon

I don’t want to let her get too close to me
I don’t want to let her get a hold of me
I don’t want to let her get the better of me

there’s nothing that she doesn’t dare
nothing she won’t do
there’s nothing that she doesn’t dare
nothing she won’t do x 3
Track Name: Dust Bunnies
I’ve got a pocket full of dust bunnies
my imagination is hard to please
walking barefoot on a cold stone floor
remember when I saw you last and what you wore

living in a snow dome town
shake it up and turn it all upside down
It’s pretty I confess
I keep an eye on your stars out of habit I guess

I don’t pretend to know why
how what or where it all begins and ends
It begins and ends, it begins and ends.

there’s a movie running through my head
what we could’ve would’ve should’ve said
every empire returns to sand
Napoleon and Caesar walking hand in hand

I don’t pretend to know why
how what or where it all begins and ends
It begins and ends, it begins and ends.

I don’t pretend to know why
I don’t pretend to know why, how what or where it all begins and ends
It begins and ends, it begins and ends
Track Name: No Roses Grow On A Sailor's Grave
what is going on round here?
the sea is high
tonight
i hope this boat
won’t let me down
i think about you all the time

no roses grow on a sailor’s grave

land ahoy! a part of me
wants to turn around
i’d loose the tattoos if i could
only settle down

no roses grow on a sailor’s grave

we could be strong
and i want to come along with you
but if you just want to spin the wheel
to keep me hanging on
i may as well be gone

i’m just riding out the storm
40,000 leagues away
i’d carry your books
carry your anchor
just to see you smile

no roses grow on a sailor’s grave
Track Name: Out Of The Mud
i’m cutting the strings one by one
i’m letting go I’m slowly coming undone
i’ve opened the gates
welcomed the flood
i’m making a lover out of the mud

no master to please no need for the whip
no reason to hide away I’ve jumped the ship
bread for your body
wine for your blood
i’m making a lover out of the mud

i’m taking my time about it
no need to rush about it

i lay you a while out in the sun
a little touch here and there I’m nearly done
that’s all I have
i hope it’s enough
i’m making a lover out of the mud
Track Name: Eat A Peach
i eat a peach
at the foot of your grave
monsieur gainsbourg
and it drips down like honey
on you in the afterworld

do do do, do do do do do do do x2

le temps de l’amour
j’suis d’accord
c’est maintenant ou jamais
aujord’hui nous sommes ici vivant
qui sait, qui sait
demain

do do do, do do do do do do do



je bois du vin
a votre vie
je chante une chanson pour vous
heure d’aller
la fin du jour
le soleil a disparu
Track Name: Dog House
i get so lonely
out here on my own
i get so lonely baby
can I come back home?

let me out of the dog house baby
set me free
let me out of the dog house baby
throw me the key

maybe I went too far
maybe I just didn’t think
and maybe maybe maybe baby
all these maybes lead me to drink

let me out of the dog house baby
set me free
let me out of the dog house baby
throw me the key

whistle

streets are empty
my pockets are too
and no matter which road I take
all of them are leading to you

let me out of the dog house baby
set me free
let me out of the dog house baby
throw me the key

let me out of the dog house baby
throw me the key
