So Easy 03:37
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.

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

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

Falling Up 03:56
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.

Like a Train 03:34
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.

Broken 03:18
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

He's on the fly, dog with wings.

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.

Sing a Song 03:34
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.

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"

The long way around. Take the long way around. Such a very long way.
