SOMETHING ILK


1) Come Over

Speed up, you're right behind
You go slow you take your time
But anymore it won't be so free
Anymore it won't be so easy
Big bass a temper a bee
Why shake, shake at your feet
Let it kick what they can't defeat
You'll hear me

I'm over here (x4)
Come over here (x4)
Come over

Too slow, how to get you to move
You got a hoop you won't need to jump though
Stuff you want me to wear and I'll wear it just for you
Any day soon, until the day
Give me a moment, it won't take you long
To make it clear enough

I'm over here (x4)
Come over here (x4)
Come over

Any day soon, until the day
Give me a moment, it won't take me so long
And any day soon, until the day
Give me a moment, it won't take me so long, ha!

Make you feel light, now there's the money
And bend your knees right  rra ta ta (x5)


2) Trade Secret

If you go, will you promise not to tell them all
And if you go, you have to swear you won't reveal it all
If you go, will you promise not to tell them all
If you go, you've such a lovely voice, I love it
Will you promise not to tell them all

That's the price you pay
That's the price you pay
No longer want to stay, you want to get away
That's the price you pay

If you stay, you can keep the things you learned today
You've to promise not to give me away
And if you stay, you can keep the things I give you
Just to promise not to breath a word
But if you go, you're such a lovely face both of them
You've to promise not to tell them all
And if you go, I'll never give my trade secrets away
Swear you won't reveal it all

That's the price you pay
That's the price you pay
No longer want to stay, you want to get away
That's the price you pay

If you go, will you promise not to tell them all
And if you go, you have to swear you won't reveal a word
But if you go, you've such a lovely bum, I Iove it
Will you promise not to tell them all
And if you stay, I'll never give my trade secrets away
Swear you won't reveal it all

That's the price you pay
That's the price you pay
No longer want to stay, you want to get away
That's the price you pay



3) Cold Man's Nightmare

It's a cold man's nightmare to be warm, where she lays
And he's to go through fire to make sure that's where he stays
I'm thinking of you

It's a cold man's fever to be loved in return
For every warm embrace he acquires the taste of getting burned
Don't let it go, even if I said to

I'm always thinking of you (x4)

It's a warm girls nightmare to have you by her side
For every look you give her sends a chill right down her spine
Oh what will I do, I couldn't stop if I had to

I'm always thinking of you (x4)
Oh it hurts sometimes to have you so alive and kicking inside

Na na na etc...
I'm easily blind, happiness is all mine
No don't let me go, even if I said so

I'm always thinking of you (x4)
Oh it hurts sometimes to have you so alive and kicking inside


Na na na etc...


4) Clean and Neat

I'm clean and neat, I'm ready to eat
I'm like a pure white cotton sheet, hanging out, to dry
I'm sour, sweet, high heeled feet
Going to push it on and ready for a treat, oh my
Worth a try

Could be time to pay, you've wasted the day away
And I'm too lazy, won't you delay
Work no pay, maybe you're right without you're lie
I'm going away
Yet you're gone all nice, put your best foot forward
But how long it's been there, it feels like it ain't going away
For the longest day

You're game it's lame, your rules are getting tame
You're put on another reel, the outcome is the same once again
Let's pretend
And days, days don't mean a thing
And when you ditch it in a diary, if a diary for a brain, but this day
You're slipping away

Could be time to pay, you've wasted the day away
And I'm too lazy, won't you delay
Work no pay, maybe you're right without you're lie
I'm going away
Yet you're gone all nice, put your best foot forward
But how long it's been there, it feels like it ain't going away
For the longest day

Oh, do do do etc...


5) Hammerhead

You have the same stubbornness as hammerhead
Don't need to get into it
When every which way is wrong and every right is your own
And everything is either black or white
But even I know the in-betweens and outs
My lowly brain can comprehend
That if it's easy you want you don't go looking for love
It will complicate you in the end

I may be hollow but I've had my fill
Of idle love I wasn't afraid to spill
And in the morning when I'm hollower still
There won't be any room for us

I have the same stubbornness as my rival
Wouldn't even compromise
When it was too even Steven didn't want to be eating
Such a big piece of the humble pie
It was a hard, hard lesson to learn then
But I won't go do that again
No if it's easy I want I won't go dishing out love
Like it's something I've got plenty of

I may be hollow but I've had my fill
Of idle love I wasn't afraid to spill
And in the morning when I'm hollower still
There won't be any room for us

I have the same attitude as my mother
And I think I'll see it out alone
It may be sweet to share a bed but when you're fucking with my head
Stopping pit is now a no go zone
I want to love you but it got too much
You have to build it out of stronger stuff
We might have something but it's not enough and there isn't any room for us


6) Old Man Rain

Old man rain and windy weather they won't mar your way
Old man rain is out to dinner with his lady may

Room enough for every season
Room enough for me
Room enough for everybody
Room enough for me
Rum rum rum rum ready run run away
Rum rum rum rum ready run run away


Room enough for everybody
Room enough for me
Room enough for every season
Rum rum rum rum ready run run away
Rum rum rum rum ready run run away

When you see your family courting with a hurricane
Whistle down to old man rain he'll bring them home again

Room enough for every season
Room enough for me
Room enough for every season
Room enough for me
Rum rum rum rum ready run run away
Rum rum rum rum ready run run away

Room enough for every season
Room enough for me
Room enough for every season
Room enough for me
Rum rum rum rum ready run run away
Rum rum rum rum ready run run away



7) Swing It

Didn't you know me, didn't I swing from tree to tree in your arms
And you'd show me, that swinging was the only way to your heart

So we'd swing it, to you and I
If what's the point of climbing when swinging gets you by
We'd swing it, me and you
I'd sooner hang around than walk the ground
So this will do

Didn't you share me, with every breed of monkey that sniffed about your feet
Would you blame me, well put a plate before me what can I do but eat

So we'd swing it, to you and I
If what's the point of climbing when swinging gets you by
We'd swing it, me and you
I'd sooner hang around than walk the ground

And we'd hang our glory for all to see
And everyone who notices knows it's all about territory

Didn't you know me, didn't I swing from tree to tree in your arms
And you'd show me, that swinging was the only way to your heart
And we'd hang our glory for all to see
And everyone who notices knows it's all about territory

Hooo etc...



8) Yak Yak

I want to listen, but you're all the time
Going ya yak yakking ying
When you should be quiet
You pull me over when I cross the line
But who'll come to pull you in when you take a bite

Oh, ah mwah! etc...

Oh won't you hear me, I'm of steady mind
Two arms to hold my own frame when you're out at night
I don't care who you are just make me ripe
Give me a long back to bare the weight of life

No wonder you go under
No wonder you go under

Only lonely men will act this way
Only lonely women then won't run away
Who would be lonely in this day and age
Only lonely men are like this way
Only lonely women then won't run away
Who would be lonely in this day and age
Who would be lonely


And here we are, and here we'll stay
And here we are, and here we'll stay
Oh, no wonder you go under
Oh, no wonder you go under
No wonder you go under

Oh, ah mwah! etc...



9) Go Make It

I'm not getting anywhere, it's all falling apart
I've figured out an ending but I'm nowhere near the start
And maybe I could get away, and disconnect the line
And they'd run a ring around themselves
Slowly loose their minds
What about the attitude, the one that got you here
It came straight for fear, straight for fear

Go and make it (x3), go and make it out
And make it, make it loud and go and get it, get it out
Go and make it (x4), out of here (x2)


I didn't think of anything, so I doodled on the page
I had families of oddities, but none of them could save me
What about the good idea, the one you had last year
It came through here and disappeared

Go and make it (x3), go and make it out
And make it, make it loud and go and get it, get it out
Go and make it (x4), out of here (x2)


They can teach you anything, could teach you how to fly
You wouldn't need an aeroplane, they'd drop you from that height
What about the other girl, didn't she do well
Well she can go straight to hell

Go and make it (x3), go and make it out
And make it, make it loud and go and get it, get it out
Go and make it (x4), out of here (x2)
Go and make it (x3), go and make it out
And make it, make it loud and go and get it, get it out
Go and make it (x3), go and make it out
You make it out, you make it out of here (x2)



10) Sugar

Uncut no blue pencil
Flawless and unguarded
Here it is, warm and pure and raw lines
No true meaning, no insight, no allusions
Here it is, raw and pure and humble

No more sugar on the page, no more serenade

Your words go unspoken
Cruel hearts go unbroken
But here it is, no glam or glitz
But who cares, you're not out there
No-one has any bearing
But here it is, cold and dumb and dead

No more sugar on the page
No more serenade (x2), (mmmm's)
No more sugar on the page
No more serenade, (mmmm's)



11) Holy Moly

I'm all eager to get started
Don't want to leave it
All undone though
One of these days my ego
Is going to steal you away

Holy moly, take me on please
I'm not one of these trained hounds though
I want to lead my own way
I'm just another stray

I'm all right, he's all right, we're all fine, we're all ok
Pay your pay, night and day, lead in vain, lean on the old train
I'm a loose train now (x2)

Tomorrow is in motion
I feel it rise and fall again now
When I dive he'll receive me
But I have a long haul to go

I'm all right, he's all right, we're all fine, we're all ok
Pay your pay, night and day, lead in vain, lean on the old train
I'm a loose train now (x2)
Sky! Sky!

I'm all eager to get started
Don't want to leave it, unsaid now
When I dive he'll receive me
But I have a long haul to go

I'm all right, he's all right, we're all fine, we're all ok
Pay your pay, night and day, lead in vain, lean on the old train
I'm a loose train now (x3)
I'm on a loose train now
Sky! Sky!


12) Save Button

You should save things, we should save things
But I don't, I lose things, I lose things
I lost the whole thing in one go
When it could have been saved but I let it go
It was my heart drive, it won't obey me
Takes that information, fills my memory
It churns out non-sense when I reload
I have to decode every single sentence

I don't pour whisky down my neck at night
I don't go binging on the weekend, pass out on the floor
I take good care of you, but you like to attack
By coagulating everything before handing at back

We should save things but I don't, I break things, I break things
I broke my baby, my newest baby
When I could have saved it all but I let it go
It was a major and it started slow
It had a rhythm that could make you move in ways you didn't know
It had this wall of string and a lingering feeling
But it's all gone thanks to yours truly

I don't pour whisky down my neck at night
I don't go binging on the weekend, pass out on the floor
I take good care of you, but you like to attack
By coagulating everything before handing at back

You take a chainsaw and drive it centreline
Straight through my insides when I lose my mind
I'm changing over to a Mac, if you don't give my files back
And it better be intact or it's scrapheap for you

You you you etc...


13) About Time

Been thrown out of my own head
I don't belong anymore
Who's been at it again
Who's been at it again
At it again

They say they made a monster who bore seven deadly sins
But they didn't understand

It's about time, I untie my binds
I'm growing up to the sun
And I'll come back when I'm done

I'll find a brand new language that won't give me away
Could be foul mouthed all day long

It's about time, I untie my binds
They'll flourish while I fade

It's about time, I untie my binds
I'm growing up to the sun
And I'll come back when I'm done
When I'm done

They'll flourish while I fade

Good riddance anyway
I'm, I'm getting bored of this place
It's about time (x4)


14) Mine For Keeps

Very few have hit the mark
And fewer still made the radar
I didn't need what they offered
And there's nothing hear, to be proud of
It's possible, I hear them
And it's probable, I didn't listen
And there's nothing hear, to be proud of
But your eyes open
Easy come, easy go

You started something I never had to question before
You started changing my mind when I was always so sure
I've starting wondering what happens if I let you in more
Should you, should you say it's mine for keeps

You should you have left with your airs and graces
And you shouldn't leave them or they'd be wasted
'cos there's nothing here to be proud of
But your eyes open
Easy come, easy go

You started something I never had to question before
You started changing my mind when I was always so sure
I've starting wondering what happens if I let you in more
Should you, should you say it's mine for keeps

Something new
You started something I never had to question before
You started changing my mind when I was always so sure
I've starting wondering what happens if I let you in more
I've started changing my mind when I was always so sure
I wouldn't mind (x8)


- Honk (Hidden Track)
  
Old and numb
And I've just begun
When they hold my tounge
For the world I've spun

Into the known
In two rowed
Oh! (x2)

Eat my word
Am I aiming low
Does the whole word know
And the whole world knows

Into my own
Into fro
Into the known
Into rowed
Oh! (x5)
Ooooh! etc...

Oh!
