Track Name: Psychosotic Twist
He dont want to be alone.
Sets down by the telephone.
Two steps, four behind.
What will it take to make you mine.

She's tricked out on a teenage crush.
She wants a man dont say too much.
Two steps, four behind.
What will it take to make him mine.

But you know, thats how the story goes.
But you know, thats how the story goes.

(Break)

Come on and do the psychosotic twist dance with me.
Come on baby do the psychosotic twist dance with me yeah.

Dance with me.
Come on and dance with me.
Wont you dance with me?
Come on and dance with me.
Yeah.

She come on like a rocket thrust.
Leave a man in a state of lust.
Two steps are far away.
Come back some other day.

But you know, thats just the way it goes.
But you know, Thats just the way it goes.

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah.

Two steps are far away,
Come back some other day.
Comeback some other day.
Come back some other day.
Come back some other day.
Track Name: Little Creatures
You know they're gonna find you out,
No matter where you run too.
They're crawling up your bedroom walls,
They're sitting right beside you.

Oooh, Oooh

No way you can stop them now,
Forget about the things you've heard.
Your feelings don't matter anymore,
The creatures are beside you.

No ones gonna hear you shout,
No ones gonna understand.
Your logic doesn't matter anymore,
Im sinking right beside you.

Oooh, Oooh.

Don't fight it anymore, Im floating right above your head.
Put your hand in mine, we'll go on spinning round, and spinning round.

Im sinking right beside you.
Track Name: Never Comes Always Too Soon
Everything that you said would come true in the end,
It came true.
Innocence in the rain is what you'd do,
So blue.
You were more than a vision in '85,
Alive.
Felt this cold heart beating for the very last time,
So fine, so fine.

Were the pictures of closeness predicting the end?
In the end.
Like a cross of emotion thats made to offend,
And up end.
I believed that the process was part of the plan,
Deus Ex Machina.
Like a labor of love lost trapped in the sand,
So sad. So sad.

Ready the time and make this work again, with you again.
Ready the battle plans for waking ends, were breaking ends.

Cause I don't want to know who you are.
And I don't want to feel anymore.

Clearing out the cobwebs on a Sunday afternoon.
Kicking off your leather boots and having tea for two.
Pretty girls in starlit curls are thinking up things to do.
Nothing else it matters much when you're barely twenty-two.

Walking down the sidewalk is a building on the left.
Sitting there with a skull in his hair is the boy with the purple pet.
He sat and cried cause Violet died and left him all alone.
She took the sad express for home when she was twenty-one.

Sandy was in love until he punched her in the eye.
Danny thought he had the time but the years just passed him by.
Beauty has a shelf life as the creature kids will tell.
Forever's still a long way off but the future's theirs to sell.

(Break)

Ivor finds a photograph from a time when he was free,
when he was free.
And the whole wide world was new.

He crumples up his last cigarette as he sits beside the fire, but he's not there.
He's nothing left to give.
All the shouting and the lashing out, and the begging for more and more.
Has left him cold and dry.
He's wishing for a time machine, back to heaven knows where or why?
Cause never comes way too soon.
Never comes always too soon.

End
Track Name: Fool From Above
Yeah you took it away.
Don't make it right.
You keep pushing away.
Just get it right this time and don't you walk away.

You keep pushing the thorn,
into the side of a reckless soul.
Your like a stone in the sun.
You keep kicking electric storms with no feet on the ground.

Im a fool for you and I can't stand myself.
No poetry or sophistry, witty repartee or drink, or picture postcard scenes of you and I walking the streets of Prague.
The cobblestones and Absinthe nights, the Autumn chill of '95, when I was still alive.

When you gonna come down?
When you gonna come down?
When you gonna come down?
When you gonna come down?

Im a fool for you and I can't help myself.
No poetry or sophistry, witty repartee or drink
Can wash you from my mind.

When you gonna come down?
Track Name: When Two is One Again
She was caught up in a dream again last night.
Caught between the earth and sky.
My dear love has been gone to many nights.
When will he come marching home.

Then two will be one again.
And you will be mine again.
Yes my sweetness will be home at last.
And my tears they will be done.
And I can rest.

Tethered to each other you and I.
I feel him there but cannot see.
I hear the guns and tremble every night.
Oh when will you come marching home.

Then two will be one again.
And you will be mine again.
Then my sweetness will be home at last.
And my tears will be no more.
And I can rest.
I can rest.

(Break)

Then two will be one again.
And you will be mine again.
Then my sweetness will be home at last.
And my tears will be no more.
And I can rest.
I can rest.
Track Name: The Ballad of Spacesailor Sam
He's waiting for orders to step outside the door.
A thousand suns come bursting open and nothings the same for him anymore.
Feeling queasy, he smiles and bumps against his head.
Nothings ever gonna be like the day it is today.

Somewhere on the sea.
He got a phone call now that just won't let him be.
Shot up into space.
He'd be the last man sent to save the human race.
What else could he say?
He packed his things and made his way for them.
The savior spaceboy king.
On the cover of every magazine.
It was quite a scene.

Waved out to the crowd.
Im gonna shoot across the sky today.
Tell old Major Tom that this time we'll get it right.
We'll be outa sight.

Sail on Sam!
