FROMRUSHHOURWITHLOVE

No Android dreamt of Victoria 
Or tube station allergens 
Just allergic to the 20th century 
But hating every morning 
Shouting out but nobody hears 
She said she loved someone 
But it didn't begin 
So each morning - I'm calling 
From the rush hour with love 
From the rush hour with love 
From the rush hour with love 
Stop sleeping, stop sleeping 
I came back as an insect 
But in another space and time 
I could love and share and feel my feet in the sand 
Stuck down the back of the Westway 
Time check 8.15 
He said he loved someone 
But he didn't love him 
So each morning - I'm calling 
From the rush hour with love (get up wake up) 
From the rush hour with love (gonna get gonna get gone) 
From the rush hour with love (get up - stop) 
Stop sleeping (sleeping) stop sleeping (sleeping) 
From the rush hour with love 
From the rush hour with love (gonna get gonna get gone) 
From the rush hour with love (get up wake up) 
(Get up) 
Stop sleeping (sleeping) stop sleeping (sleeping)

FADINGOFTHEMAN 

Ice cold, Heart stone 
You want fresh meat, But I won't eat it 
You can't touch me, Your insides ugly 
It's a slap in the face, But you gave it away 
You give in to fame 
Then, you found yourself high 
And you're gonna feel low 
And you find yourself colder than the winter 
Can't bare to be alone 
Faded man 
Ice cold, Bare bones 
You take flesh and you take asprin, 
Glad I faked it, coz now its ended 
Coz you found yourself high, Now you're going below 
When your throat becomes dry, And you wanna go home 
Faded man 
But the airports are closed, And your credit card knows 
Your honesty's left back on the runway 
Screaming for the phone, It's the fading of a man 
Like a slap in the face, But you gave it away 
You gave in to fame 
Then, you found yourself high 
And you're gonna feel low 
And you find yourself colder than the winter 
Melting like the snow 
Faded man 
And you find yourself high, Now your going below 
And your faces are changing like the seasons 
Breaking like a bone 
It's the fading of a man


TRYEVERYTHING 

Jimmy came down from the northwest  
Said there's a couple of things 
I wanna get off my chest 
Like eat some food you're looking like a ghost 
And how come you always hurt 
The ones that you love most 
I've pulled myself together, It tore us apart 
I've been on the M1 for most of the night 

You're born and then you live, then you die 
You get one try and I've tried everything 
A cannon's loose you were telling the truth 
And I lied - caught offside - so don't say anything 

And Jimmy said words I hadn't heard before 
Like licentiousness and what about getting a job 
But the blood in your body as you're coming down 
It stings like the cold wind, That blows round your friends 

You're born and then you live, then you die 
You get one try and I've tried everything 
A cannon's loose you were telling the truth 
And I lied - caught offside - so don't say anything 

Like a moon soaked summer night 
On a rainy Westbourne Park day 
We're together we're apart 
Hell I'm crazy, I'm wrong and you're right 

You're born and then you live, then you die 
You get one try and I've tried everything 
A cannon's loose you were telling the truth 
And I lied - caught offside - so don't say anything 

You're born and then you live, then you die 
You get one try and I've tried everything 
A cannon's loose you were telling the truth 
And I lied - caught offside - so don't say anything 
Just try everything just try everything

LUXURYCAGE 

Future you, Future me 
You make the whole damn day feel longer 
It's taking me over, It makes me feel older 
Creature you, Creature me 
I shed my coat, But it turned winter 
Just look at the weather 
It's raining forever 

But I could stay, Stay in this luxury cage 
Wouldn't that be great 
I don't think so (I don't think so) 
Yeah I could stay, Stay in this sparkling fake 
Stay in this beautiful masquerade 
I don't think so (I don't think so) 
Future you, Future me 
I shut myself out from the world now 
The sounds getting so loud 
You're making me spin round 

But I could stay, Stay in this luxury cage 
Wouldn't that be great 
I don't think so (I don't think so) 
Yeah I could stay, Stay in this sparkling fake 
Stay in this beautiful waste of space 
I don't think so (I don't think so) 
Future you, Future me 
I guess I'll have to set my sights higher 
I'm too near a liar, It makes my feel tired 

But I could stay, Stay in this luxury cage 
Wouldn't that be great 
I don't think so (I don't think so) 
Yeah I could stay, Stay in this sparkling fake 
Stay in this beautiful waste of space 
I don't think so (I don't think so)

FASTERFASTER 

My skin creeps 
I'd like to sleep 
World get up without me 
Another day that I'll hate 
And it takes so long 
And the people come 
And it's every freezing morning 
Sometimes they never come at all 
Just sitting here with shoes and perfume 
Make up and the mirror 

Just give it up, Let me out 
Out of here, Faster don't stop 
Get me out, Out of here 
Faster faster 
My feet on fire 
Yeah he's a liar 
Playing judge and jury 
I'll just pretend he's someone else 
And the phone can ring and I won't begin now 
To say that I'm not your baby 
I kind of wished I never was 
Not stayin' here 
With you the rent the red bills 
And the tears 

Just give it up, Let me out 
Out of here, Faster don't stop 
Get me out, Out of here 
Faster faster 
Faster faster 
Faster faster

NOTHINGSFEELINGNEW 

Everything that I ever found 
I'm switching over to a low tar brand 
Got cable video with surround sound 
I lie in bed and watch the world go round 
Got CNN baby 
Got ISDN baby 

Everything is useless 
Everything is stupid 
Nothing's feeling new 
Everything is useless 
Everybody's clueless 
Nothing's feeling new 
 

Got Sherman filters and Virgin Peps 
Got mini disc and virtual pets yeah 
Fizzy drinks are gonna rot your brain 
Got Patrick Cox mules and Donna Karan 
I got the wide screen Star Wars Trilogy 
Got belly rings and flings and Hard Candy 
That's Urban Decay baby 
Got Space NK oh baby 

Everything is useless 
Everything is stupid 
Nothing's feeling new 
Everything is useless 
Everybody's clueless 
Nothing's feeling new

MILLENIUM

Everybody's talking about a new beginning 
A new place to drink in, a fast new boyfriend 
A new science for a brand new century 
A message to the future electronic holiday 

Let the clock roll 
So let the clock (the world is outside) 
Roll (stars in the sky) 
The clock hits midnight 
Devil's hitting midnight 
We hit midnight 

New Year everything's gone quiet 
Everybody's talking about a new space station 
Your teeth falling out in the radiation 
All your insurance and all your air miles 
In gigantic computer millennium violence 
Let the clock roll 

So let the clock (the word is out now) 
Roll (the sky's falling down) 
The clock hits midnight 
Devil's hitting midnight 
We hit midnight 
We hit midnight 

New Year everything's gone quiet 
Everybody suddenly thinks it's underground 
To get into bands that split up in the 60's 
Burn up the software learn that guitar 
And get on the radio in America - yeah! 

The clock hits midnight 
Devil's hitting midnight 
We hit midnight 

New year everything's gone quiet 
Clock hits midnight 
Devil's hitting midnight 
Rip it up midnight 
New Year everything's gone quiet

PRETTYGIRLHATE 

She said she'd lie for you, She said she'd die for you 
She said she'd fly in the sky, Said she'd cry for you 
She said she's proud of you, And that she loves you too 
Put on a show coz she knows, What you're going thru 
She says I'm looking rough, I'm on a diet and stuff 
And now it's all gone wrong, Oh she knows that it's tough 
She says she'll do what she can, Coz she's my No.1 fan 
Take advice don't fight, What he told her last night 
Do you wanna know about us, She's got pretty girl hate 
Funny how a so called friend, Delete everything she said 
Apologies they come too late, She tells pretty girl lies 
Every single time, She's got pretty girl hate 
But then she changed her tune, In just one afternoon 
Hates my guts won't stop, 'Till I'm out the room 
She let the rumours fly, She's got a devious mind 
Attitude bitter fruit, And an evil eye 
It's not a part of my life, She's got pretty girl hate 
Funny how a so called friend, Delete everything she said 
Apologies they come too late, She tells pretty girl lies 
Black and white, All the time 
You do everything in spite, Your jealousy 
Is deep inside, Pretty girl 
It's not a part of my life, Do you wanna know about it 
She's got pretty girl hate, Funny how a so called friend 
Delete everything she said, Apologies they come too late 
She tells pretty girl lies, Black and white 
All the time, You do everything in spite 
Your jealousy, Is deep inside, She's got pretty girl hate 
Every single time, Every single night 
Every single time, She's got pretty girl

KUNGFUMOVIES

Kowloon gardens, Was some where a short cut through 
Til I met you, Now we're lying on your bed 
Watching Kung Fu movies 
There are no days or nights, Just you and me and Bruce Lee 
We shout we fight, We chase the night 
But we disagree,  

Kung Fu movies, Kung Fu movies 
Kung Fu movies, Kung Fu 

Shaolin and fu sang yang, Seng li - all the time 
Dragon master deadly Venoms five, Hong Kong style 

Kung Fu movies, Kung Fu movies, 
Kung Fu movies, Kung Fu 

I frustrate you, Complicate you, I'll hit and hurt you 
It's Hang Seng baby 
Coz one of these days when I make money 
I'll blow away these Kowloon gardens 
And you and Kung Fu 
You and Kung Fu, You and Kung Fu 
You and Kung Fu 

I'll blow away these Kowloon gardens and 
Kung Fu movies, Kung Fu movies 
Kung Fu movies, Kung Fu 

Ngo jah che hi sickfan, gung hoi fat choy gowlong 
Ngo tung kwilo a ma va, leung kar m hoi ta

PUBPUSHER 

On Heavenly Sunday as he touches your insides 
He said the last thing on my mind was to cheat on you 
Go down Queensway as you start another fight 
You know it spoils my appetite you're a selfish boy 
Just sit and wonder as your dreams go up in smoke 
You're stealing cars and selling dope 
Now you've sold your soul 
And I'm hanging out with Mortal Combat 2 
And Haagen-Daaz and early Cure 
How I miss you so 
Pub pusher onlookers 
Call for pizza there's a pub pusher on the ground 
Pub pusher born loser 
Call the doctor there's a pub pusher on the ground 
Pub pusher tried to kill ya 
Call the cops there's a pub pusher on the ground 
On his back there's a pub pusher on the ground 
Give blood there's a pub pusher on the ground 
Pub pusher call the preacher 
They don't believe there's a pub pusher on the ground 
Pub pusher 
Pub pusher 
Pub pusher 
Pub pusher
