Track Name: Sailor Girl
sailor girl is all at sea. she says,
‘i’m looking for something real, something to set me free’.
what will it be. what will it be ?.

sailor girl is up and down. she says
‘i need an anchor to keep me in this town’.
what will it be. what will it be ?.

captain, my captain, what do you do when your dreams are sinking.
what do you hold on to?.
captain, my captain, what do you say when the boat is leaking.
what do you hold on to?.
what do you hold on to?.

sailor girl gives in and sighs. she says
‘is my head in the clouds, are there stars in my eyes?.
what will it be. what will it be ?.

captain, my captain, what do you do when your dreams are sinking.
what do you hold on to?.
captain, my captain, what do you say when the boat is leaking.
what do you hold on to?.
what do you hold on to?.
Track Name: Get Up & Fall Down
the man with the voices in his head said ‘be quiet, please be quiet’.
there’s mayhem in the attic
can you hear it there’s a riot. there’s a riot

and i see you and me in him
like puppets on a string, we dance and fall down,
we laugh and fall down,
get up and fall down.

he knows that life is just a hoop you have to jump through.
you have to jump through.
still he wonders as the whip comes down
does he have to? does he have to?

and i see you and me in him
like puppets on a string, we dance and fall down,
we laugh and fall down,
get up and fall down.

the man with a pocket full of stones
stood beside the running river.
he wishes he could just let go and enjoy the show
but he’s so tied up, he’s so tied up.

and i see you and me in him
like puppets on a string, we dance and fall down,
we laugh and fall down,
get up and fall down.
get up and fall down.
get up and fall down.
Track Name: Good Day
woke up late again, didn’t make the bed.
friend of mine came by, sun was in the sky, no reason to complain.

sat there for a while, that’s what I do best.
read a little more bukowski, ordinary madness is surely everywhere.

nothing broken or loss, it’s been a good day.
nothing broken or loss, it’s been a good day.

kicking out the jams, habits die hard.
we can only try, occasionally we fly, have you got somewhere to land?.

i don’t want to think too hard about it.
i don’t want to think too hard about it.

influential piano solo

nothing broken or loss, it’s been a good day.
nothing broken or loss, it’s been a good day.
nothing broken or loss, it’s been a good day.


nothing broken or loss, it’s been a good day.
nothing broken or loss, it’s been a good day.
Track Name: Fingers Crossed
everyday is a hurricane in the china shop.
looking down but seeing up.

everyday everest is small from a cloud above.
a highwire act, no net below.

fingers crossed, we find the ladders, skip on past the snakes
to the places we have what it takes.
we have what it takes

everyday it washes up at our feet again.
just as sure as a fridge will buzz

fingers crossed, we find the ladders, skip on past the snakes
to the places we have what it takes.
we have what it takes
Track Name: Diamond In The Mine
she’s a diamond in the mine.
she’s a beautiful scar.
if we could travel i think we’d go far.

she’s a circus girl.
she’s a shepherds delight.
i couldn’t love her anymore tonight.

all’s well in my tree, i’m not looking down.
when i fall will she catch me, is she with me now?.

she’s a mardi gras.
she’s a house of fun.
it’s awful quiet when she’s gone.

all’s well in my tree, i’m not looking down.
when i fall will she catch me, is she with me now?.
all’s well in my tree, i’m not looking down.
when i fall will she catch me, is she with me now?.
Track Name: Here Comes Your Ride
goodbye beautiful it’s time, the daisies are trampled.
it’s such a crime.
you looked so far ahead and left so much behind.
here comes your ride

i want to remember how we were
in those days of gold
when we shone like stars.
we were bright, we were bold.
here comes your ride

surely we will laugh again,
it’s too soon now, you’re all around me.
i waited so long, guess i’ll be here a little longer.
here comes your ride
