Track Name: Lover Cover Girl
Strange face on the magezine
Forcing me to buy her
I dragged my willing body
I wanted then to own her

Into the paper shop
Into the paper shop
My hands are sweating ice
My lover cover girl

Her features leapt out from the page
Something like a dragon
Licked at my eyes with her eyes
I gave a ghost some money

Out on the street I look
Out on the street I look
Her face in full colour
My lover cover girl

I took her home to my room
Lock my door shut me off
I felt so anxious caught a glimpse
Mummy's coming up the stairs

Under the bed she goes
Under the bed she goes
No one must ever know
My lover cover girl
Track Name: Coloured Paper
Paint your door
Green red and purple
If you see me
Take me home
I dont think
Of even numbers
My life is one of

Coloured paper
All around

Your youngest sister
She wont realise
Her fate
Daub her in
A strange mixture
Never mess around
With the colours that breathe
When they move

Coloured paper
Over me

Your breakfast circuit
Lap it up
And move it down
Paint your hallway
Captain Scarlet
Montage features
On the moon

Coloured paper
In my room
Track Name: Occupational Hazards
The jobless social scientist
Playing on his own instinct
Throws up a six again
Meditating medicine man
Discovers houses in his head
For Kicks
Career opportunist
Finds a way
To cheat
And makes no bones
To cheat
And makes no bones at all

Observant ice cream eater
Licks off a parking meter
Kicks off his shoes and sighs
They walk away chattering to themselves
Oh give me back my only chance
To win
And save him from
The over eager crowds
The latent patient waiting
Throws back his head
And laughs it off

About the brave undaunted
French chef who's leading lobsters
Into pots where they sceam
And moan
Railway guard is bored
Takes a chance
And loses again
Prima donna park keeper
His community chest
Is bared with scars
Track Name: Double Dutch
Dutchman is watching
From the corner of his eye
It's not that I mind so much
It's the gun he's waving high
Try not to look too good
When you go to Amsterdam
Check your wallet
Forge your passport
Backs against the wall
Day or night

Over in Holland
It's so strange
The ladies
Will make ours look tame
Over in Holland
It's so strange

It's the language
That will throw you
To the nearest dyke
Like a lion tamer
Holding up his chair
So thier claws
Dont rip you apart
Please dont get involved
Or put your head in thier mouths
You'll be turned into a cheese

Over in Holland
It's so strange
The ladies
Will make ours look tame
Over in Holland
Its so strange

Naked light flicks on my face
Awakes me from a dream
Flickering images cross my pillow
Memory comes clean
I turn and see
The long black hair
Cascading down my spine
I bark and snap
But she wont move
Is she dead or alive
Save my life

Over in Holland
It's so strange
The ladies
Will make ours look tame
Over in Holland
It's so strange

Mention Germans
And you'll be directed to THe Hague
A Flemish facade surrounds thier lives
Visions turning vague
Prostitutes and drud rings
In the Kirkstraat Boxing Fair
Sell thier wares
And sell thier mothers
Everlasting heart

Over in Holland
It's so strange
The ladies
Will make ours look tame
Over in Holland
It's so strange
