Track Name: The Fall Of Great Britain
THE FALL OF GREAT BRITAIN

'The Philistines be upon thee!'

This is a warning to you all
This is the story of the fall
Of Great Britain
This is the story of the blow
Not yet smitten

The wearer of the suit of the cloth of gold
Stood upon the bank and watched the battle unfold
Ran amongst the ranks like the heroes of old
Mystified the mind of his famous foe
The wearer of the suit of the cloth of gold

This is a warning to you all
This is the story of the fall
Of Great Britain
This is the story of the foe
Not yet beaten

'The Philistines be upon thee!'

The wearer of the suit of the cloth of gold
Saw history in the rolling of the passing clouds
relished the risk and laughed out loud
The wearer of the suit of the cloth of gold
Felt his Fate unfold

'Give me one good plug!'

This is a warning to you all
This is the story of the blow
Not yet smitten
This is the story of the foe
not yet beaten

The wearer of the suit of the cloth of gold
In iridescent livery
An effervescent reverie
Near robbed him of his sanity
The wearer of the suit of the cloth of gold
Felt his mind unfold

'My antediluvian nemesis!' he cried
Track Name: Coming Forth By Day
COMING FORTH BY DAY

Boys and girls come out to play
What once was has passed away
Coming forth by day
Coming forth by day
The final seal is broken
We're coming forth by day

Horus rides the morning wave
The dawning morning newly made
Coming forth by day
Coming forth by day
The green hills are coming
Coming forth by day

Leave your cities and leave your towns
We're heading for the fairground

All the fallen angels sing
‘Lucifer, our Cuckoo King!'
Coming forth by day
Coming forth by day
They're putting on their colours
And coming forth by day

And the world is changing in our wake
The old foundations surely shake
Leave your cities and leave your towns
We're heading for the fairground

Mary won't you dance with me?
What once was will no more be
Coming forth by day
Coming forth by day
The green hills are coming
Coming forth by day
Track Name: I-Super Real
I-SUPER REAL

Sitting on a hill
On a fine fine day
When I feel a winter chill
Embrace me
Then the mist comes down
And the world turns grey
And your cold cold breath
Intoxicates me
You're so alive you're so real
You're so alive you're so real

Is that ice in your eye?
Or just a tear?
And is it love that you feel?
Or is it fear?
You're too alive you're too real
You're too alive you're too real

I'm the only dog I need
In this two team town
'Cos I'm feeling super real
Invigorated
I'm so alive I'm so real
I'm so alive I'm so real

Got to power down
Get my washing done
'Cos I need a clean sheet
Mister laundry day
I'm the only dog I need
On this fine fine day
'Cos I'm feeling super real
Intoxicated
I'm too alive I'm too real
I'm too alive I'm too real

Then the mist comes down
And the world turns grey
And the cold cold breath
Invigorates me
And I'm feeling super real
As the snow comes down
'Cos this two-team town
Now awaits me

I Super Real
Track Name: Stone Tumbling Stream
STONE TUMBLING STREAM

They say my ways are wicked
They say walk straight talk true
But the straightest way seems crooked
So I make my own true crooked way

Stone tumbling stream they call me
'Cos nothing stands in my way
Stone stumbling stream just watch me
Give me time and the mountains tumble to the sea

Who fills the hills with laughter?
Stone Tumbling Stream!
Who's there the morning after?
Stone Tumbling Stream!

Stone tumbling stream refresh me
Come tumbling down on me
Stone tumbling stream possess me
Fill my soul and make me whole again

Stone tumbling stream they call me
'Cos nothing stands in my way
Stone stumbling stream just watch me
Give me time and the mountains tumble to the sea

Who makes the tough guys tremble?
Stone Tumbling Stream!
Who's pure and free and humble?
Stone Tumbling Stream!

They say my ways are wicked
They say walk straight talk true
But the straightest way seems crooked
So I make my own true crooked way

Stone tumbling stream refresh me
Come tumbling down on me
Stone tumbling stream possess me
Fill my soul and make me whole again

Who's there for young and old now?
Stone Tumbling Stream!
Who fills the fleece with gold now?
Stone Tumbling Stream!
Stone tumbling stream they call me
'Cos nothing stands in my way
Track Name: It'll Be Night Soon
IT'LL BE NIGHT SOON

It'll be night soon
It'll be night soon
It'll be night soon

It'll be night soon
You can forget the day
And the messed up games
They make you play
It'll be night soon
You'll feel better then
Under the big old moon
Your lonesome friend

And as the living stars
Look down on you
They see the ugly things
You're made to do
They'll tell you
'This old world isn't what it seems'
It's a shadow play
Built on dreams

You say you seek enlightenment
While I seek the dark of night
For deep in the heart of darkness
I see all that goes on in the light

It'll be night soon
It'll be night soon
It'll be night soon

The messed up things
They make you do
Will break your heart
You know it's true
By the living stars
We will not fail
By the living stars
We will prevail

It'll be night soon
It'll be night soon
It'll be night soon
Track Name: Lucybel
LUCYBEL

Lucybel
Lucybel
It's Christmas time
And I'm bound away
Bound away
I'm bound away
And It's Christmas time
Lucybel

It's Christmas time
And I see you shining in the sky
Christmas time
And I'm bound for glory in the sky

Turned away
We were turned away
No room for us
At Christmas time

Christmas bells
Yes they toll for me now Lucybel
Christmas bells
Yes they're pealing for me now Lucybel

And you're my star
My Christmas star
And I see you shining
Lucybel

It's Christmas time
And I see you shining in the sky
Christmas time
Yes we're bound for glory in the sky

It's Christmas time

And all the stars are blazing in heaven above
But none shine as bright as you Lucybel my love

Lucybel
Track Name: The Moon's Lost Light
THE MOON'S LOST LIGHT

There's not a man alive
Could hurt Big Dan
But it only took a pretty girl
To take his hand
And he fell
Fell in love
Yes he finally fell
Fell in love
The big lug

Well he searched this land
For a year and a day
But he couldn't find the pretty girl
Who ran away
So he fell

Into his cups
Yes he finally fell
Into his cups
It was just his bad luck

And he cried
'Sadder than the Moon's lost light
Is the passing of your face from my sight
And if I might look upon your face in my death
I would gladly yield my last breath!'

Big Dan drank
Like an old sperm whale
Until the day came
He turned up his tail
And he fell
From this world
Yes he finally fell
From this world
All for a girl

You see
Sadder than the Moon's lost light
Was the passing of her face from his sight

There's not a man alive
Could hurt Big Dan
Track Name: Black Comic Book
BLACK COMIC BOOK

Deep in my heart
There's a black comic book
And all the pages are the same
Won't you come and take a look

At my black comic book
At my black my black comic book

Well the action flies awesome
From the depths of the ocean
And the hero's washed up dead
And then reborn bad

In my black black comic book
In my black in my black comic book

Yeah lying in the gutter of my heart
Tyre-torn and stained
The tattered remains of the day
Of swift victory revealed

And when I dream at night
Black realms unfold
My love’s delight untold
Her dress all black with mould

Heart of darkness
Love bedoomed
And the shadows rise rampant
As the heroine's saviour swoons

In my black my black comic book
In my black black comic book

The blood of a hero
Lies splattered on the ground
And it's as black as the shadows
Of the stooges standing round

In my black in my black comic book
Yeah in my black black comic book
Track Name: Strangely Lucid (alternate mix)
STRANGELY LUCID

Strange
Strangely Lucid
Strangely Lucid
Strangely Lucid

Laying in a field
Staring at the sky
Remembering things
That are making me cry
Watching the clouds roll by
Remembering why

Strangely Lucid
Strange
Strangely Lucid

When we dream now
We go back to that city
Back to who we really are
And so our memories unfog
Time is proved mutable
Elastic
For those who learn to swim
As it were
Who are not swept along
In Time's current

How does it feel
To remember?
How does it feel
To forget?
How does it feel
To remember?
How does it feel?

Track Name: Green Rocky Road
GREEN ROCKY ROAD
(by Len Chandler / Robert Kaufman)

Happy is the wise man
And happy is the wicked man
But woe to the one
With a soul in embryo

It's a green rocky road

Mary running to the wall
Don't you stumble don't you fall
Don't you holler don't you shout
And when you hear me sing
Come running out

Green rocky road

When I go up to Manchester
They've got no carpet on the floor
Got no carpet on the floor
When I go up to Manchester

It's a green rocky road
Green rocky road

Bluebird in the sky
He don't work
He just flies
If he ever touches the ground
I swear he'll die
Bluebird flying in the sky

It's a green rocky road
Green rocky road

Tell me who do you love
Who do you love
Love
Track Name: Necessity (unheard mix)
NECESSITY

She rises like the Sun
She rises like the Sun

She rides thunderclouds
She rides thunderclouds

Necessity
Necessity
Necessity
She may be Necessity

She rises like the Sun
She rises like the Sun

Necessity
I call her Necessity
Necessity
She may be Necessity

She rides thunderclouds
She rides thunderclouds

Necessity
She may be Necessity
Necessity
I call her Necessity
