Hair on the Arms And Legs

See him digging; see him weeding
Every single day of the year
Coffee at eleven; four thirty; tea
His security is built on routine

But inside his mind, there's a lot
Going on
Planning the world but it just don't
Do no good

I say; "What's the use?"
Population; starvation; his mind keeps
Working hard
Ending wars, changing laws and all
Of them locked away

I say; "What's the use?"
Population; starvation; his mind keeps
Working hard
Ending wars, changing laws and all
Of them locked away

In cessation, repetition funeral for
An age of decay
Meditation; deep frustration
Caused our hairy friend to die

Here lies a man
Who failed to escape
Filled his small head with the worries
That plague the world

I say; "What's the use?"

 

Happy the Man

Happy the man - he lives a simple life
He doesn't have much - it doesn't worry him
Where you go - when?
Yeah, yeah, yeah, nowhere

Like a nun with a gun - I'm wonderful fun
Laughing all through - just watching you
Seems a very stupid game...
But I don't care

Happy the man - he doesn't buzz around
Nothing he wants - any more than anything
Where you go - when?
Yeah, yeah, yeah, nowhere

Like a fool in a pool - I'm incredibly cool
With a grin on my chin - I'm certain to win
Someone says he's Jesus Christ - but I don't care

He is a good man...

 

Harlequin

Came the night a mist dissolved the trees
And in the broken light colours fly, fading by.
Pale and cold as figures fill the glade
Grey is the web they spin, on and on, and on and on.
Through the flame still summer lingers on
Though her pictures soon shatter.

All, always the same.
But there appears in the shades of dawning,
Though your eyes are dim,
All of the pieces in the sky.

There was once a harvest in this land.
Reap from the turquoise sky, harlequin, harlequin,
Dancing round, three children fill the glade,
Theirs was the laughter in the winding stream, and in between.
Close your talk, the picture fades again
From the flames in the firelight.

All, always the same,
But there appears in the shades of dawning,
Though your eyes are dim,
All of the pieces in the sky.

All, all is not lost,
And light appears in the shades of dawning
When your eyes can see
Order the pieces, put them back, put them back.

 

Harold the Barrel

News:

A well-known Bognor restaurant-owner disappeared
Early this morning.
Last seen in a mouse-brown overcoat,
Suitably camouflaged,
They saw him catch a train.

Man-in-the-street:

"Father of three its disgusting"
"Such a horrible thing to do"
Harold the Barrel cut off his toes and he served them all for tea
"Can't go far", "He can't go far".
"Hasn't got a leg to stand on"
"He can't go far".

Man-on-the-spot:

I'm standing in a doorway on the main square
Tension is mounting
There's a restless crowd of angry people

Man-on-the-council:

"More than we've ever seen.
- Had to tighten up security"

Over to the scene at the town hall
The Lord Mayor's ready to speak

Lord Mayor:

"Man of suspicion, you can't last long, the British Public
Is on our side"

British Public:

"Can't last long", "You can't last long".
"Said you couldn't trust him, his brother was just the same"
"You can't last long".

Harold:

If I was many miles from here,
I'd be sailing in an open boat on the sea
Instead I'm on this window ledge,
With the whole world below
Up at the window
Look at the window...

Mr.Plod:
"We can help you"

Plod's Chorus:
"We can help you"

Mr. Plod:
"We're all your friends, if you come on down
And talk to us son"

Harold:
You must be joking
Take a running jump

The crowd was getting stronger and our Harold
Getting weaker;
Forwards, backwards, swaying side to side
Fearing the very worst
They called his mother to the sight
Upon the ledge beside him
His mother made a last request.

67-yr-old Mrs Barrel:
"Come off the ledge if your father were alive he'd be very,
Very, very upset.
"Just can't jump, you just can't jump"
"Your shirt's all dirty, there's a man here from
The B.B.C."
"You just can't jump"

Mr. Plod:
"We can help you"

Plod's Chorus:
"We can help you"

Mr. Plod:
"We're all your friends, if you come on down
And talk to us Harry"

Harold:
You must be joking.
Take a running jump......

 

Healthaze

No cloud, a sleepy calm,
Sunbaked earth that's cooled by gentle breeze,
And trees with rustling leaves,
Only endless days without a care,
Nothing must be done.

Silent as a day can be,
Far-off sounds of others on their chosen run
As they do all those things they feel give life some meaning,
Even if they're dull.

Time to stop this dreaming, must rejoin the real world
As revealed by orange lights and a smokey atmosphere.
The trees and I are shaken by the same winds but whereas
The trees will lose their withered leaves,
I just can't seem to let them loose.
And they can't refresh me those hot winds of the south.
Feel like an alien, a stranger in an alien place.

Now the light is fading fast,
Chances slip away, a time will come to pass
When there'll be none,
Then addicted to a perfumed poison,
Betrayed by its aftertaste,
We shall lose the wonder and find nothing in return.
Many are the substitutes but they're powerless on their own.

Beware the fisherman who's casting out his line
Into a dried up river bed,
But don't try to tell him 'cos he won't believe you.
Throw some bread to the ducks instead, it's easier that way.
Feel like an alien, a stranger in an alien place

 

Hearts on Fire

In life there are those decisions
Which direction you should take
It's only later that you realize
All those simple mistakes you make
I don't like being alone
Don't wanna be by myself
But since you've gone that's all I can think oF
I can't think of nothing else

Oh, I said I'm sorry, soon I give it up
You know I'm sorry, soon I give it up
You know I'm sorry, soon I give it up
Cos my heart's on fire
My heart's on fire

Woh can you take me there
Oh, come back and take me there
Cos I need to be with you
Be there with you

Yes there is no denying
Our love is not untrue
I know I've lied so many times before
But deep down there's only you
I need you here by my side
Together our love could grow
But first you have to believe that I want you
More than you'll ever know

Woh, I said I'm sorry and I give it up (give it up)
You know I'm sorry, soon I give it up (give it up)
You know I'm sorry, soon I give it up (give it up)
Cos my heart's on fire
My heart's on fire

Woh can you take me there
Oh, come back and take me there
Cos I need to be with you
Be there with you

(give it up, give it up, give it up...)

With it we take our chances
What will be will be
But I don't care what the people may think
Just as long as you're here with me
Don't like being alone
Don't wanna be by myself
And since you've gone, well that's all I can think of
I can't think of nothing else

Woh, I said I'm sorry and I give it up (give it up)
You know I'm sorry soon I give it up (give it up)
You know I'm sorry soon I give it up
Cos my heart's on fire
My heart's on fire

Woh can you take me there
Oh, come back and take me there
Cos I need to be with you
Be there with you
You, be there with you

Hearts on fire
Hearts on fire
Hearts on fire
My heart's on fire
Hearts on fire, hearts on fire...

 

Here Comes the Supernatural Anaesthetist

Exhausted by all this conjecture, our hero gets the chance in a lifetime to meet his hero: death. death is wearing a light disguise, he made the outfit himself.
He calls it the "supernatura
Esthetist." Death likes meeting people and wants to travel.
Death approaches rael with his special cannister, releases a puff, and appears to walk away content into the wall.

Here comes the supernatural anaesthetist.
If he wants you to snuff it,
All he has to do is puff it
- He's such a fine dancer.

 

Hey!

I'll tell you the story
Of how my life ran
Well; at first it was easy; but it finished
so hard.

Hey! You started me going.
Hey! I was so happy
Hey! You started me going inside me
I need your love right now!

Promises broken; the things I believed in
You were so nice; girl
And I couldn't see through it.

Hey! You ended my hapiness
Hey! You needed my love
Hey! You ruined the world I was planning
Hey! You left it all too late

Hey! It's all over now
Hey! You want to apologise
Hey! Well look at me ; hundreds of pieces
Why did you lead me on?

Hey! You want to apologise
Hey! Well look at me; hundreds of pieces

 

Hidden in the World of Dawn

Pastel colours bring the sky to life
Cleanse the night with a breath of dawn
Silence broken when a baby cries
Piercing the mist that cloaks the cool
Outside

The streets are beginning to moan
Gently now
Daylight lays on the ground
Dew drops trickle down leaves
Gently now
Soaking the pathway of the father's
Motions

Windows opening as the postman calls
Letters to smell; letters to burn
Daily papers through the hole in the door
Sex and news fill the wisdom of a million
Minds

Time is a measure of strength
Quickly now
Speed is the cause of decay
Traffic is humble to fall
On your knees
Pushing and pulling the tired
Little men in their cars

Wake up! Your conscience is calling!
Reality begins at nine
Wake up! Think what you're missing
Hidden in the world of dawn

Rest your body with soothing sleep
Dream of the hours you left behind
Listen carefully for the break of day
The twilight's near, silence brings the
Fantasy here

Silhouettes mingle with sky
Backed with smog
Ripples of morning flow by
The quietness flavours the glow
Breathe it in
Imagine the bliss that is glazing the warm face agleam

Wake up! Your conscience is calling!
Reality begins at nine
Wake up! Think what you're missing
Hidden in the world of dawn.

 

Hold on My Heart

Hold on my heart
Just hold on to that feeling
We both know we've been here before
We both know what can happen

Hold on my heart
Cos I'm looking over your shoulder
Ooh please don't rush in this time
Don't show her how you feel

Hold on my heart
Throw me a lifeline
I'll keep a place for you
Somewhere deep inside

So hold on my heart
Please tell her to be patient
Cos there has never been a time
That I wanted something more

If I can recall this feeling
And I know there's a chance
Oh I will be there
Yes I will be there
Be there for you
Whenever you want me to
Whenever you call oh I will be there
Yes I will be there

Hold on my heart
Don't let her see you crying
No matter where I go
She'll always be with me

So hold on my heart
Just hold on to that feeling
We both know we've been here before
We both know what can happen
So hold on my heart...
