Alpha

Endless time, an endless sign
The alphabet will cease to rhyme
Empty rooms where fate assumes
A narrative can be consumed
Other fates will be revealed
Evidence is signed and sealed
Elegance, in endless time
Poise and grace becomes sublime

Checking out, and what's implied
After all, you think you lied
Endless choice and endless dreams
Are they just beyond your means?
Undefined, not undermined
Pay the toll or stay behind
Endless dreams and endless schemes
We all prefer to play those scenes

My LCA (Little Box of Magic)

You made me look at the world with different eyes
Tall electric pylons, planes in the sky
Little box of magic in my hand
Little box of magic sees the world

Tunnels, fields and signs everywhere
Faces, lights, reflections in the air
Little box of magic in my hand
Little box of magic sees the world

Little box of magic in my hand
Little box of magic sees the world
Colours, magic colours, paint the world
Colours, magic colours, paint the world

Cosmology for Beginners

Marqueed marsupials, in frenzied ambivalence
Defacing their megaliths and freezing their assets
Starting resolutions, firing their humanities
Being extra careful with fractured reality
Bonding their uni-bombs, fishing for condoms
Skating on thin rice, breaking your pardon
Hanging with the insteps, barking at the wrong sea
Writhing from the pressure, coughing in the right tree

Radioed signals
Fire-hosed carpetbaggers

Filling in crossroads and drinking the ambulance
Sticky backed plastic in blue piece of evidence
Shopping for haloes, looting the carpets
Sacking your Romans and hissing your targets

Crazy evolutionaries dampen ancillaries
Enigmatic beehives, tenting your Hillarys
Leafless and railing the urge to persist
Bending the meaning and writing a list
Fail-safe departments impeding the cause
Writing instructions and looking for flaws
Grasping for meaning, trailing the senses
Enlightened descriptions for putting up fences

Not certain, entirely, If this work is all your own
Not quite sure, entirely, If it's your or just a loan
Keep thinking, what's missing? Your senses overblown
Keep trying, to enlighten. To make your feelings known

Cosmology for beginners
Radioed signals
Fire-hosed carpetbaggers
Deep fried shag
Maintenance republic
Scatter headed babble

They Are

They are articulate
They are here
They are working on the schedule for next year
They are so talented
They are awake
They are an expert and a pioneer
They are unusual
They are in love
They are detailed and appealing
They are trusted
They are playing
They are often caught stealing

They are good
They are back
They are "bad boys" again
They are doing well
They are the one
They are a law unto themselves

They are delicate
They are sexy
They are all Irish charm
They're extraterrestrial
They are a fool
They're a quite delightful character
They are our smallest doll
They are a Belgian
They are only 18" long
They are a dog
They are second from right
They are lying on her bed

They are good
They are back
They are "bad boys" again
They are doing well
They are the one
They are a law unto themselves

Option paralysis

Balance risk against potential
Create your own special pet
Innovative professionals
Adept at removing history
A worthwhile use of public funds
More opaque than other text
Why not switch, choose me now
A personal plan to suit your needs

Our new crisis
Is it conscience or control?
One step in development
A natural extension of choice

Training at all experience levels
Missing from the launchpad floor
Lets make it better together
It's best for you in this phase of life
A maximum degree of flexibility
Trading below intrinsic value
Abstract reasons and solutions
5 per cent less on all your calls

Our new crisis
Is it conscience or control?
One step in development
A natural extension of choice

Wallpaper

Take a look at the work, a minute ship, carved from gold
A scene from the last supper
Set in the eye of a needle
The artist himself is left confused
A steady hand and a fascination with ants

Shrink The World; Micro Hip
Streets ahead, love at first sight

Splinters of wood, complete with doorways, windows, tables, chairs, TVs
Fly hair paintbrush
A powerful hand, a meditation technique
Refreshingly clear, of complex matter and abstract ideas

Shrink The World; Micro Hip
Streets ahead, love at first sight

It's a painstaking battle
To keep still
To keep alive
To keep consciousness
To keep slowed down
To be blown away
By little things
Causing bigger impacts

Shrink The World; Micro Hip
Streets ahead, love at first sight

Raining Down

I can hear you say
I can hear you clearly
It's raining down in my head

Everything you say
Everything you're thinking
It's raining down in my head

Standing in the rain
I can hear thinking

Pylons

(Instrumental)
