Accordian to Mao

Cummings/Stephen - "We All Make Mistakes" b-side

China's as far
As anyone can go
I'm impatient to get to China
You know problems of individuals
Fading away
It's happening in China today

  Let a hundred flowers bloom
  That sends me over the moon
  Sitting in a room
  The ?????? player plays a tune

Players get lost in an endless chinese smile
My friend at the Yangtse River's mouth
Take her to see hospitals and factories
Reunited they must allow me

  Let a hundred flowers bloom
  That sends me over the moon
  Sitting in a room
  The ?????? player plays a tune

Accordian to Mao
I'm a better person now
Accordian to Mao
Everyone's gone
Accordian to Mao
I'm a better person bow
Accordian to Mao

China's as far
As anyone can go
I'm impatient to get to China
You know problems of individuals
Fading away
It's happening in China today

Accordian to Mao
I'm a better person now
Accordian to Mao
Everyone's gone
Accordian to Mao
I'm a better person bow
Accordian to Mao
Hardly Working

Cummings/Stephen - "Backstabbers" b-side

It's hardly working
Just turn it over expectantly
I can't
I can't
I can't even get angry

Start again
Do it again
Once more with feeling
Start again
Do it again
Once more with feeling

  Hardly working ooh
  Hardly working, hardly working at all
  Hardly working ooh
  Hardly working, hardly working at all

Hit the deck
Batten all the hatches down tight
Rock the floor
Rock the floor
We're staying in tonight

Start again
Do it again
Once more with feeling
Start again
Do it again
Once more with feeling

  Hardly working ooh
  Hardly working, hardly working at all
  Hardly working ooh
  Hardly working, hardly working at all

It's hardly working
Just turn it over expectantly
I can't
I can't
I can't even get angry

Start again
Do it again
Once more with feeling
Start again
Do it again
Once more with feeling

  Hardly working ooh
  Hardly working, hardly working at all
  Hardly working ooh
  Hardly working, hardly working at all
Much Too Much

Cummings/Stephen - "Gymnasium" b-side, re-worked slow version of "We All Make Mistakes"

Make mistakes
Yeah I guess
All the time
And especially when it comes to you

Of all the girls I met
You take the cake
Refuse to admit
You've made a mistake
Shouldn't sweep me off my feet
If you can't stand the heat
No I don't want to meet your mother

Girl you're much too much
You know you're quite a number of fine fellows
Take me some place I don't know
You're just so so
There's no place left to go

  Don't put on the brakes
  We all make mistakes
  Don't put on the brakes
  We all make mistakes
  Don't put on the brakes
  We all make mistakes
  Don't put on the brakes
  We all make mistakes

Memories of long ago
Come filtering back
Like rubble rash and burn
You're so abstract
I said no-one's entitled to
Anymore of you
Than you want them to

  Don't put on the brakes
  We all make mistakes
  Don't put on the brakes
  We all make mistakes
  Don't put on the brakes
  We all make mistakes
  Don't put on the brakes
  We all make mistakes
When In Rome

Coleman/Leigh - "Gymnasium" b-side

When in Spain
For reasons I can't explain
I remain enjoying a brew
Please endure
My fondness for fundador
You know how a fundador
Can lead to a few
It's just that when in Rome
I do like the romans do

If perchance
I'm singing farewell to France
And romance
Drops in from the blue
Cherchez l'amour
I beg of you
Please endure
My making a brief detour
With somebody new
It's just that when in Rome
I do like the romans do

And if in Italy
I lie to you prettily
Don't think of me bitterly
You know that I'm true
It's just that when in Rome
I get that old yearn in Rome
And naturally when in Rome
I do like the romans do

And if I lie happily
Best wishes from Napoli
Don't cable me snappily
And tell me we're through
It's just that when in Rome
And once again in Rome
It's just that when in Rome
I do like the Romans do

It's just that when in rome
In somebody's den in Rome
Well pussycat when in rome I do like the romans
Forget the signs or the omens
When in rome I do
Do
Like the romans do
Look Again Lovers

"Another Kick In The Head" b-side




What Am I Going To Do

Cummings/Peter Crosbie

I do my best
To give out the impression
We were goin' places

There was some destination
Some perfect oasis
Sky was full of coloured lights
Somewhere maybe Mexico
Across all borders we go

  What am I going to do
  Now that I've got you
  What am I going to do
  Now that I've got you

How sweet it was
With tenderness I've lived
This is a confession
You know everything
Well I was not wise
I was not wise or worldly
And then the rains came
Big big droplets fell from the sky
Now and then I cry

  What am I going to do
  Now that I've got you
  What am I going to do
  Now that I've got you

  What am I going to do
  Now that I've got you
  What am I going to do 
 (To do, To do, To do)
 (To do, To do, To do)
  Now that I've got you

I was not wise
I was not wise so or worldly
And then the rains came
Big big droplets fell from the sky
Now and then I cry

  What am I going to do
  Now that I've got you
  What am going to do
  Now that I've got you, you

  What am I going to do
  Now that I've got you
  What am I going to do
  Now that I've got you, you, you
Not Afraid

"What Am I Going To Do?" b-side




Written In The Wind

Cummings/Talbot - Family Affair b-side

When I am alone
It's so inviting
To try to capture
The mood you put me in
But I never can
So I'm giving in
To a whisper
And it's written in the wind

Do I have to come right out and say it
Something's missing 
When you're not around
There's a dreadful sound
The miracle of each breath
Shines within
I'm in love again
And it's written in the wind

  A whisper
  It's written in the wind
  Only you
  Can put me in that mood again

When I'm with you
The magic of each touch
Makes me realise
You're an adventure and ?such?
It's a bit frightening
I'm in love again
And it's a whisper
Written in the wind

  A whisper
  Yeah written in the wind
  Only you
  Can put me in that mood again

  A whisper
  That's written in the wind
  Only you
  Can put me in that mood again

When I am alone
It's so inviting
To try to capture
The mood you put me in
But I never can
So I'm giving in
To a whisper
And it's written in the wind
The Things That I Have Done Wrong

Cummings/Andrew Pendlebury - Love Is Crucial... b-side




Watch This Movie For Me

Andrew Pendlebury/Cummings - from Andrew Pendlebury's "Between The Horizon and the Dockyard"

Drink up your wine
It'll make you big and strong
Sure I've been misrepresented
Stayed about here ?overlong?
This year, last year
Years ago
It all becomes confused in my memory
I'm tired and lost
Too much greed and murder
Not every ????? has a gun or a blackjack
Just a wisecrack
I open my mouth
The lies just pop out
I recognise this movie and ?I've become ????????
If you don't like it leave
This film is a novelty

Won't you watch this movie for me
Watch this movie for me

?girl????????
A blue hour on the esplanade
Some hung up above the water
Between the horizon and the dockyard
Not everyone's rich
Not everyone's miserable at all
Once I was curious
I'm not curious anymore
No beginning no ending
This film's just a lot of in between
No fast forward on to sleep
Watch the screen
This actress
A pretty sphinx
A slight smile
A decay
We're just tiny specks out in the milky way
This film has no certainty

And so won't you
Watch this movie for me
Won't you watch this movie for me
Wherever I Go Goodwill And Happiness Follows Me

Cummings/Shane O'Mara - two recorded versions of this song exist. Stephen's version appears on his "When Day Is Done" single. Rebeccas Empire released their version of the song on their 1994 "Atomic Electric" single.

The slightest look will set me up to thinking
I thought if you separate you'd feel great
Well it's hard to explain
To acknowledge the pain
When you're crying in the shower

The dumbest songs on the radio make me cry
Might be Dusty Springfield
Might be Me and Mrs Jones
Might even be Paul Simon singing Hearts And Bones
On a Fender Rhodes

 Wherever I go goodwill and happiness follows me
 Wherever I go goodwill and happiness follows me
 But I told you that before
 As I walked out that door
 Out of breath and so weary

Well call it temporary insanity
You could say that I'm just full of shit
No matter what anybody said
I really thought that this one was gonna be it

Tell me what is that that you are drinking
Gee it looks good I might have one too
You see those girls, those goddamn girls
Love so unpredictable and there's nothing you can do

 Wherever I go goodwill and happiness follows me
 Wherever I go goodwill and happiness follows me
 But I told you that before
 As I walked out that door
 Out of breath and so weary
Three Dead Passengers

Cummings/Dave Graney - three recorded versions of this song exist. The Stephen/Dave duet version appears on the "Keep The Ball Rolling" and "September 13" singles. Another Stephen/Dave version appears on "Totally Wireless: The Triple J Acoustic Sessions". Dave also recorded the song with his band The Coral Snakes on his album "Night Of The Wolverine".

Three dead passengers
A stolen second hand Ford
Outside of Keith near the border
Wrapped around a tree
Thrown across the road
Tyres spinning like a ferris wheel at the Easter show
The papers said
You couldn't tell who was driving
No one had a licence
They're all wearing gloves
Wraparound mirror shades
Three dead passengers
In a stolen second hand Ford

Yeah like one was wearing white flared trousers
And a red and green checked Miller shirt
They were last seen makin' to drag a Holden at the lights
Laughing like fools
As they reversed into the night
Three dead passengers
In a stolen second hand Ford

Three dead passengers
In a stolen second hand Ford

Somebody said
He called everybody "sport"
Yeah smoked cigars
And he kept to himself
Photo of Johnny Famechon
Stuck right there in his wallet
Three dead passengers
In a stolen second hand Ford

She lived in a shed
Behind her parents house
She collected model guillotines
There's a picture of Serge Gainsbourg
On her wall
Three dead passengers
In a stolen second hand Ford
Bite Your Lip

Cummings/Dave Graney - "Keep The Ball Rolling" b-side

I walked underneath the moon
The shadows had a sense of foreboding gloom
But the air
I knew that I'd be home soon
I'm happy to be here with you
I'm still learning stuff everyday
And if it pleases you then it pleases me
But if you're doing it just to please me
Then it won't please me in quite the same way

When you look me in the eye
You look like you might cry
Bite your lip don't cry

Out of curiosity
Cursed with a photographic memory
I know where I was at what time and just who was with me
If I'm not sweltering in the sun
I'm looking out the window at everyone
As they parade through the park
Walking down to the railway station

Do we really have to fight
And let's just enjoy the night
Everything changes everyday, when times are bad
Make mine a double, okay
Teacher I Need You

Elton John/Bernie Taupin - used in "The Heartbreak Kid" soundtrack

Sitting in a classroom
Trying to look intelligent
In case the teacher looked at me
She was long and she was lean
She's a teenage dream
That lady means the whole world to me

It's a natural achievement
Conquering my homework
With her image pounding in my brain
She's an inspiration for my graduation
And she helps to keep the classroom sane

Chorus:
Oh teacher I need you
Like a little child
You got something in you to drive a schoolboy wild
You give me education
In the lovesick blues
Help me get straight come out and say
Teacher I, teacher I, teacher I need you

I have to write a letter
Tell her about my feelings
Just to let her know the scene
Focus my attention
On some further education
In connection with the birdies and the bees

So I'm sitting in the classroom
Looking like a zombie
I'm waiting for the bell to ring
I've got John Wayne stances
I've got Errol Flynn advances
And it doesn't mean a doggone thing
Whatever Love Is

Cummings/Robert Goodge

It was clear from the start
We wanted it to happen
My hands were shaking
I noticed a little smile cross your face
The wheels turn
Come to me we will find a way
To put our love in some better place

(Whatever love is)
You gotta feel it
(Whatever love is)
You gotta respect it
You know that...

Chorus:
My heart's open
My heart's an open house for you
Whatever love is
Whatever my love means for you

Love's not always good to us
But love's always welcome at my door
Gotta forgive and forget
What's left if love is gone
The lights went up
Not a dry eye in the house
Oh that sexy sound
Love goes on and on and on

(Whatever love is)
Just nourish it
(Whatever love is)
Just cherish it
Because...

Chorus

(Whatever love is)
You gotta nurture it
(Whatever love is)
You gotta be devoted to it
(Whatever love is)
You gotta move with it
(Whatever love is)
You gotta feel it
You know...

Chorus
Waiting For You To Come

Cummings/Newman/Robert Goodge - from "Rollercoaster"

Cars moving, waiting in vain
Wind shakes the calm and the rain came
Clouds of tears
?Wit's bleak?
Radio static buzzing in between
If I push will you return to me
You animate my curiosity
You're a star that became a hurricane
Who'll be the one to blame if the rain came

Chorus:
Waiting for you to come
(I'm still waiting)
Waiting for you to run
(I'm still waiting)
You're caressing someone
And I'm waiting for you to come
(I'm still waiting, I'm still waiting)

A murmur of anger
You are a pretty burning star
?Got you now, understand it all?
You set me up for a mighty fall
Push ignition, drive me hard
Your will I'd shake
When I catch you off guard
Can't believe my ears
Lies that spring from your lips
Just enough to keep me hanging from your fingertips

Chorus
Whisper Me Nothing

Bennie/Giarusso - from "September 13/White Noise" single




Slowly Going To Pieces

Cummings/Robert Goodge - from "Puppet Pauper Pirate Poet Pawn and King"

I'll be lucky if I can find
Time to stretch my legs once a day
The most that I'll get out of this love
Is fret and pain
And tears and worry
And I think I'm so immune
But when you walk into the room

  I'm slowly
  I'm slowly
  Slowly going to pieces

There'll be trouble I can see that
Misunderstanding between me and you
And I think you won't show up
Suddenly you do
And I think I'm so immune
But when you walk into the room

The only way
To burst the bubble
Is to go through all this trouble
The way up is the way down
When you're stuck on this crazy merry-go-round
Since I set eyes on her 
I'll be lucky if I don't suffer
The most that I'll get out of this love
Is pain and tears of worry

Slowly going to pieces...
Somewhere

- from "Puppet Pauper Pirate Poet Pawn and King"

  Somewhere, somewhere
  Somewhere, somewhere
  Somewhere, somewhere
  Somewhere, somewhere

Somewhere I don't know
Somewhere I'll find it
Someday I'll come in from the cold outside
You'll never know how hard I've tried
Somewhere I don't where
I won't be confined
I'm the loving kind
My love hasn't dried up inside

I was in a dream
And when I was dreaming
Somewhere between wrong and right
My body soared to such a height
I was seeing things in the right light
Seeing things gave me such a fright
And the wind carried me like a paper kite

I've been doing whatever agrees
I've been doing as I please
I've been living beyond prayer
I've been too tired to care

I've been catching some rays
I've been in such a daze
I shook my fist at the sky
I've been asking why
I've been singing in a shrill key
Please please please
Protect me
I'm cold, I'm tired and I'm uneasy
Waiting For A Train

Harry Vanda/George Young - from "PPPPP&K"

Wonder why it's getting cold at night
I must be getting old
Looks like I'm going to have to wait a while
What the hell I'm bored
What's that there on the railway line
Looks like my old brown shoe
It ain't mine mister, how's that for laughs
Not even how do you do

Wonder what's cooking at the house tonight
Stew and beans
Tune that station turn that dial
Have another dream
Ain't it stupid how people stare
Not even how do you do
What's that mister, nah nah nah
I'm just the same as you

  Running down the mainline
  Shaking off the pain
  Waiting for a bright time
  Waiting for a train
  Running down the mainline
  Shaking off the pain
  Waiting for a bright time
  Waiting for a train

Who's that guy I've seen his face before
Where or when
Must be another face from Suzie's bar
It was different then
Ain't no way I can fix this up
I've really lost the place
What's that mister yeah yeah
I hope they fix your face
One she says you don't make
Two she said you don't care
Three she said she's unhappy
Four that you're never there
Five she give you the option
Six you sink and you drown
Seven
Well what's your reason?

  Running down the mainline
  Shaking off the pain
  Waiting for a bright time
  Waiting for a train
  Running down the mainline
  Shaking off the pain
  Waiting for a bright time
  Waiting for a train
Nowhere To Run

Brian Holland/Lamont Dozier/Eddie Holland - performed by Stephen on "The Crossing" soundtrack

Nowhere to run to, baby, nowhere to hide
Got nowhere to run to, baby, nowhere to hide

It's not love I'm running from
It's the heartbreak I know will come
'Cause I know you're no good for me
But you've become a part of me
Everywhere I go, your face I see
Every step I take you take with me

Nowhere to run to, baby, nowhere to hide
Got nowhere to run to, baby, nowhere to hide
I know you're no good for me
But free of you I'll never be, no

Each night as I sleep
Into my heart you creep
I wake up feeling sorry I met you
Hoping soon that I'll forget you
When I look in the mirror to comb my hair
I see your face just a-smilin' there

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide from you baby
Got nowhere to run to, baby, nowhere to hide
I know you're no good for me
But you've become a part of me

How can I fight a love that shouldn't be
When it's so deep, so deep, deep inside of me
My love reaches so high I can't get over it
It's so wide I can't get around it, no

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide from you baby
Just can't get away from you baby, no matter how I try

I know you're no good for me
But free of you I'll never be

Nowhere to run to, baby, nowhere to hide
Got nowhere to run to, baby, nowhere to hide...
From St Kilda to Kings Cross

Paul Kelly - performed by Cummings/Chris Abrahams on "Moon Over Melbourne" compilation

From St Kilda to Kings Cross is thirteen hours on a bus
I pressed my face against the glass and watched the white lines rushing past
And all around me felt like all inside me
And my body left me and my soul went running

Have you ever seen Kings Cross when the rain is falling soft?
I came in on the evening bus, from Oxford Street I cut across
And if the rain don't fall too hard everything shines just like a postcard
Everything goes on just the same
Fair-weather friends are the hungriest friends
I keep my mouth well shut, I cross their open hands

I want to see the sun go down from St Kilda Esplanade
Where the beach needs reconstruction, where the palm trees have it hard
I'd give you all of Sydney Harbour (all that land, all that water)
For that one sweet promenade
Piece By Piece

Shane O'Mara/Cummings - from 1994 Rebeccas Empire single "Atomic Electric"

The phones were out of order
And your wishes didn't all come true
And you just had to see him
Just for a little while
Had to see your sideways smile

A drop of water splashed against my face
In the middle of the night
No moon shone through my window
No boatman run me to the other shore
And no lover held me tightly

 Piece by piece
 The story takes shape
 Hour to hour lost in cloudscape
 Piece by piece
 To keep the record straight
 My emotions are upside down
 And they just radiate, they radiate

It's a curious feeling
Bringing it all back inside
Writing your letters
Or walking to the post office door
I changed my mind a dozen times or more

 Piece by piece
 The story takes shape
 Hour to hour lost in cloudscape
 Piece by piece
 To keep the record straight
 My emotions are upside down
 And they just radiate, they radiate

 They're radiating through the door
 They're radiating through the floor
 They're radiating through the door
 Uh oh

And the people next door
Sang another tune happy birthday
In the middle of the night
It made me lonely for you
And nothing else would do

 Piece by piece
 The story takes shape
 Hour to hour lost in cloudscape
 Piece by piece
 To keep the record straight
 My emotions are upside down
 And they just radiate, well...
Unfair

Cummings - from "Sometimes" single

Listen to the hum
At the other end of the telephone
I tried your number
Your friend said you were not home
So I took a walk
Just to cool things out a bit
I thought we'd talk later
I didn't know that this was it

It's unfair, unfair
It's unfair, unfair
It's unfair

Friday afternoon
And the rain's bucketing down
The railway station
Is crowded with people they've all got a frown
On their faces
And the wind it chilled me to the bone
I tried your number
Your friend said that still were not at home

It's been a hellish week
There's no sign of it fading away
I gotta to be more careful
About all the dumb things that I say
I know what I should say
And I know what I should do
I know more often
I should tell her that I love her
Here Comes

Melanie Oxley/Chris Abrahams - original version from their 1992 album "Welcome to Violet". Stephen's version appears on the "Sometimes" single.

Here comes happiness
Like you've never seen it before
Here comes loveliness
Like you've never felt it before
And here comes hopefulness
Like you've never seen it before
And here comes the end of things
Like they had no beginning at all
Why Me

Dave Graney - from "Taken by Surprise" single

I came home last night this morning
Somehow
I came home last night this morning
Somehow
I don't notice anybody or anything
Or have a longing to
I tried to get to sleep
I went out walking ?????

Well I looked in the mirror
All kinds of different ways
Well I pulled up my pants
I screwed up my face
I try to catch myself, catch myself unawares
Why me, why me, oh baby why me

Well I looked around my room
I pushed over my closet
I looked under my bed just for the hell of it
I emptied my pockets
It's not that I'm frightened
It's just that I'm wondering why
Why me, why me, oh baby why me

I thought I'd met everybody I was goin' to
And I was kinda glad
I thought I'd met everybody I was goin' to
I was kinda glad
I wasn't looking for anybody or anything
Why me, why me, oh baby why me
Happiness

Sean Sennett/Cummings - from Crush76's album "(she said pop)"

Chords:
  Verse: Eb major 7/C# maj7
  Change: G#7 F#7 Amaj7

It's raining
Your whole world has gone
The man on the radio
Said "it's over, son"
She moves like summer
With her hair let down
She's gone to live where the clocks are all wrong

One more moment
To fill our hearts
With strength and happiness
Through the faces of people we love
We see the world as it is

She's got credit cards
No need for cash
She's got a rich boyfriend
Who said he knows she's coming back
You and I will remember this
We'll move on
And we'll count our photographs

In you mini skirts
With that little dog
Don't wipe the lipstick off my face
I want to leave it there
You and I will remember this
We'll move on
And go and count our photographs

The man on the radio said "it's over"
The man on the radio said "it's over"
The man on the radio said it was over
I Felt Light

Escapist outtake - lyrics supplied by Stephen

the room was dark
and the lamp beside the bed
it threw an orange glow
around inside the room,
and I wouldn't have told you this once
but I want you to know
that I'll endeavour
to be true forever
yeah and I'm bathed in the light
and it comes from the sky
from out of the blue
yeah and it grew

and I felt light
new and bright
love's purest power
I felt light
new and bright
I felt whole
down in my soul

buzzing round
in my thoughts
with a thousand ideas, yeah
all this stuff
every evening
you'll be smiling up at me
even when
the path gets rough
and you told me you'd look after me
in this sleepy house and pulled a face
you emitted a low cry when I promised
that I'd even watch Melrose Place
Undecided

originally performed by Masters Apprentices - performed by Stephen on "RRRewind in the Chapel"




Come Down

Originally performed by The Church on the album "Magician Among The Spirits". Stephen performs this song on "RRRewind In The Chapel". This transcription by Paul Crick is taken from the Church web site.

You should decide what you want to believe in
How can I describe what I'm receiving
It's like the marquee says, "One Night At The Stage"
You want to live forever but you don't want to age

I just can't help wondering
It's such a waste of time

The life-buoy in the life-boat he was a sailor
You could not describe him, oh the words would just fail you
And Justine's laced up tight in her shoes
You're gonna get it whatever you choose

I just can't help wondering
It's such a waste of time

That's the blues man
That's the big town
That's the rebound
That's the comedown

As high as a mountain as fast as a first (?)
Lying beside a fountain dying of thirst
And the marquee says, "One Night At The Stage"
Wait 'til I let this soul out of it's cage

And I just can't help wondering
It's such a waste of time

That's the blues man
That's the big town
That's the rebound
That's the comedown

(Quiet section)
That's a weird trick (?)
That's a bad hit
That's the rebound
That's the comedown
She Sees Herself In Dreams

Cummings/Bill McDonald - recorded during Spiritual Bum sessions

She'd like to be in another body
And when she is
She says what's happened to me
She has no money
And she, she has no time
Her eyes are burning jewels of light
Her lips are red red wine

She sees herself in dreams
As sweet as she can bear
She sees herself in dreams
Floating on air

She's in a carriage stuck at a railway station 
And she wonders if she'll reach her destination
She's crossing a bridge and it breaks under her
She gets into a car but she doesn't know, she doesn't know
How to drive

She sees herself in dreams
As sweet as she can bear
She sees herself in dreams
Floating on air

She sees herself in dreams
Where she belongs
She sees herself in dreams
Singing this song
She sees herself in dreams
Running from some place
She sees herself in dreams
Circling a strange space

She gets into a car
But she doesn't know how to drive
She's running down an endless corridor
She feels so alive

She sees herself in dreams
As sweet as she can bear
She sees herself in dreams
Floating on air

She sees herself in dreams
Running from some place
She sees herself in dreams
Circling a strange space
She sees herself in dreams
And the dreams are getting duller
She sees herself in dreams
Of intense colour
There Are Words For The Things I Want To Say

Cummings/Bill McDonald - recorded during Spiritual Bum sessions

There are words for the things
I want to say
There are words for the things
I want to say

Things you didn't even know you knew
Till you were asked
We play games like children
Excited at the idea of a party
We play games like children
Excited at the idea of a party
We flirt
Outrageously
The songs we sang
Were vulgar and ?silly?

Why am I so restless
Why do I have this feeling in my blood
Why am I so restless
Why do I have this feeling in my blood
Why do I feel like I am
Just wading through the mud

We don't like to take responsibility
When things go wrong
We don't like to take responsibility
When things go wrong
We're all looking
For somebody to follow
Imaginary lines crossing the earth
??????????

There are words for the things I want to say
There are words for the things I want to say
There are words for the things I want to say
There are words
There are words
There are words

One Sweet Day

?Stephen Cummings? - Firecracker outtake

Sometimes you got to wonder
If we're all part of the same human race
Peoples heads are fuelled with hate
People walking around with a long face
Got enough problems in your life
Well I've got enough in mine
Our circuits are overloaded
With self obsession and time

 Some sweet day
 Things'll change for the better
 Some sweet day
 Some sweet day
 Things'll change for the better
 Some sweet day

We all know the way the world works
Yeah we all know that
We know the world sucks
And we do it
We do it just out of habit
Some people got all the money
Others they don't have none
But I got a ?hard on? for the world
That keeps me forever young

 Some sweet day
 Things'll change for the better
 Some sweet day
 Some sweet day
 Things'll change for the better
 Some sweet day

Some sweet day yeah
Some sweet day yeah
Some sweet day
Things'll change for the better
Some sweet day
Gonna take a deep breath
Let it slide
Some sweet
Some sweet day
