I've been around And I'll tell you no lies I've seen better places I've seen bluer skies But now I'm here And I'm stuck for a while I'll say the right things I'll wear a false smile But oh, when I think of it I live in my head when I dream of it All that I want is a simple thing Its to fly away home Across the sea Is the land of my dreams I'll cross the Atlantic My good friends to see And when at last I return to those shores The gloom will be lifted Of this I am sure

The lamb dies No one ever cries Everybody's looking For a lionheart The weak cry "Cos strength aint on thier side They know that they must suffer For the lionhearts The good guys never win Always pummeled in A shining smile is no match For a clenched fist The rat race Is never won by rats They always meet a cat With a lionheart And now the meek they cry They know it was a lie And all they will inherit Is a fat lip And outdepthed I stand and witness this Alone abused and wrecked By the lionhearts

She got eyes that smoulder brightly Like embers in a fire Diamonds on her fingers A little wiggle in her walk She looks good enough to eat But too dangerous to talk to She got five stars She looks sassy on the cat walk Where shes full of feline grace Has a funny little half frown That she wears apon her face Though her ears are dripping silver She's as cultered as a pearl She got five stars Not one Two Three Four But five stars She has a photogenic nose That she flares when she's annoyed But that very rarely happens 'Cos she's friends with all the boys She makes love only with the camera And she never lose her poise She got five stars She gives intimate exclusives To glossy magazines She's seen all the hottest nightclubs In one thousand dollar jeans She would love to make a movie She says life aint what it seems

Colour supplementary Life is elementary Everyday's a holiday Lived in a special way But I've heard of a mob Of working class yobs Who wont behave that way They send Postcards from the last resort Where the heat is on And time is short Wishing that you Were there With their backs against the wall Looking for signs of the fall Wishing it was you And not them They could live in ideal homes Spend all their weekends in Rome But they prefer to live in slums Wasting time with drinking chums The're basically lazy And politically crazy But they prefer To live that way Our lifestyle is just simply devine It's just like the movies Occasional lapses of taste Our only crime God we're so groovy We've always been a little ahead of our time Ahead of our time

She was such a pretty thing In her younger days Hair as red as a corn field ablaze Eyes fierce and untamed She'd give us her good advice She'd say wrap up in the cold You got your health you got all that you need Just help the children and the old She'd give her last penny As poor as she was And when she died on a cold winters night I felt my heart turn to dust So this song is for you Claire Wherever you are I think you knew that I loved you so well Lord I miss you so much

Chopper roars to his oldest friend He says Captain Smirnoff Please save my weekend The Captain's silent On this occasion So many times He'd saved Chopppers bacon Failing to plan Is planning to fail Pressure makes diamonds Or coal if you fail So dont you fail The pressure's on The deal is done Going over the line Chopper pleads For a little time But friends are short When the goings tough So he packs his bags And goes on the run Chopper smiles At the golden one He says Daddy's home To his only son A warm embrace And a silent word Has Chopper learned Only love is golden

The shallow end of the genepool That was aquip and a half My love is soaring like seagulls I'll ignore your cruel laugh I got no axe here to grind I'm gonna make you mine I'll have to work on your mind But I'm gonna make you mine You say you feel like an angler The one who landed the tyre I say it's vicious but witty And it just ignites my fire I am resigned in this matter I face a constant rebuff And though you challenge my confidence My resolve will be enough

I got myself all upset now "Cos I just seen the show Concerned another innocent child Murdered by the cartel Putting dollars first Tell me why, then In this The greatest country on earth Tell me why,then The people have to suffer The children and their mothers And down on the subway We see another homeless guy Blankly staring And begging for pennies The people just ignore him And hurry right on by

Thinking about Love Thinking about love Thinking about love Anf thinking about you Well now I went out to the grocery store I thought I saw you through that open door But it turned out to be a girl That I once knew She is mighty fine its true But she'll only ever be half the woman of you And it got me thinking about love and all it means I went up to the north east coast That's the place that it rains the most Like a fool i did not take me no coat Pretty soon I was wet to the skin But the thought of you made me warm again Just the same next time I'm gonna take me an umbrella
