"Everything Flows"

See you get older every year
But you don't change
Or I don't notice you changing
I think about it every day
But only for a little while
And then a feeling

I'll never know which way to flow
Set a course that I don't know
I'll never know which way to flow
Set a course that I don't know

The wind's blowing in my face
Lately found it hard to keep the pace
And I'm looking for a place to go
But only for a little while
And then a feeling

I'll never know which way to flow
Set a course that I don't know
I'll never know which way to flow
Set a course that I don't know

"Primary Education"

You wanna turn your back on everything
You wanna turn your back on everyone
Well I try

You wanna turn your back on everything
You wanna turn your back on everyone
Well I try

Buh buh buhdaa...
Buh buh buhdaa...
Buh buh buhdaa...
Buh buh buhdaa...

"Critical Mass"

When I touched your skin
I felt your heart beating deep within
And I was sure
Everything was fine

You're in my heart
But it's the feeling that all fell apart
Think of me; but don't believe that I was wrong.

When I switched off my feeling is when I lost control
Couldn't say what I was needing -
Something I didn't know

I woke up in bed
A cold sweat running down my head
And I remembered something you had said:
(You Said) "Don't dream too long, 'cuz when you wake up everybody's gone."
Find someone else to sing another song.

When I switched off my feelings is when I lost control
Couldn't say what I was needing -
Something I didn't know
When I switched off my feeling is when I lost control
Couldn't say what I was needing -
Something I didn't know


"The Ballad Of John & Yoko" (Lennon/McCartney)

Standing in the dock at Southampton, trying to get to Holland Or France
The man in the mac said, "you've got to go back,"
you know they didn't even give us a chance

Christ!
You know it ain't easy, you know how hard it can be
The way things are going, they're gonna crucify me.

Finally made the plane into Paris, honeymooning down by the Seine.
Peter Brown called to say, "you can make it O.K.,
You can get married in Gibraltar near Spain."

Christ!
You know it ain't easy, you know how hard it can be
The way things are going, they're gonna crucify me.

Drove from Paris to the Amsterdam Hilton, talking in our beds for a week.
The newspeople said, "say what you doing in bed?"
I said "we're only trying to get us some peace."

Christ!
You know it ain't easy, you know how hard it can be
The way things are going, they're gonna crucify me.

Saving up your money for a rainy day,
Giving all your clothes to charity,
Last night the wife said,
"Oh boy, when you're dead you don't take nothing with your soul"
Think!

Made a lightning trip to Vienna, eating chocolate cake in a bag.
The newspapers said, "she's going to his head,"
They look like two Gurus in drag."

Christ!
You know it ain't easy, you know how hard it can be
The way things are going, they're gonna crucify me.

Caught the early plane back to London, fifty acorns tied in a sack.
The men from the press said, "we wish you success,
It's good to have the both of you back."

Christ!
You know it ain't easy, you know how hard it can be
The way things are going, they're gonna crucify me.
The way things are going, they're gonna crucify me.

"God Knows It's True"

Maybe I just got it wrong
Express the feelings in a song
I didn't mean that much to you
I'm given such a tainted view

I'm not bitter, you're still sweet
If I'm the bones, then you're the meat
I'd like to spend some time with you
Cause everything's got in a stew

God knows it's true, but I think that the devil knows it too.
God knows it's true, but I think that the devil knows it too.

God knows it's true, but I think that the devil knows it too.
God knows it's true, but I think that the devil knows it too.

Singing with a different band
Playing with a different hand
Somebody broke into my house
Stole the words out of my mouth

Baby said I've got it wrong
I sang the feelings in a song
And if they don't mean a thing to you
A lot you say is nothing new

God knows it's true, but I think that the devil knows it too.
God knows it's true, but I think that the devil knows it too.

God knows it's true, but I think that the devil knows it too.
God knows it's true, but I think that the devil knows it too.

"So Far Gone"

Could you be the one who wants to turn me into something new?
Could you be the one, the one who has to make life fun of you

So far gone
So far gone
I'd love to turn you on

Could you be the one, you always complicate my thoughts of you
Could you be the one, you always stop for me to drive right through

So far gone
So far gone
I'd love to turn you on

Understand my way,
I hope you will someday
I understand my way

Did you be the one that wants to turn me into something new
Did you be the one, you always complicate my thoughts of you

So far gone
So far gone
I'd love to turn you on

Understand my way,
I hope you will someday
I understand my way

So far gone
So far gone
I'd love to turn you on

"Don't Cry No Tears" (Neil Young)

Don't cry no tears around me
Don't cry no tears around me
Cause when all the water's gone the feeling lingers on
Oh true love ain't too hard to see
Don't cry no tears around me

Well I wonder who's with her tonight
And I wonder who's holding her tight
Cause when all the water's gone the feeling lingers on
Oh true love ain't too hard to see
Don't cry no tears around me

Cause when all the water's gone the feeling lingers on
Oh true love ain't too hard to see
Don't cry no tears around me
Don't cry no tears around me

"Free Again" (Alex Chilton)

Well I'm free again, to do what I wanna do
Free again, to sing my song again
Free again, to air my longing,
And to be out on my own again

Well I had me a girl, but she couldn't understand
Me and my ways, and my need to be around
Left her today, took my life in my hands
And now I'm free again

Well I'm free again, to do what I wanna do
Free again, to sing my song again
Free again, to air my longing,
And to be out on my own again

Well I made a mistake, and thought I could turnaround,
Thought I could take, a leash on my neck, around
Now I'm gonna make, my way to another
Til my feet are back on the ground

Yes I'm free again, to do what I wanna do
Free again, to sing my song again
Free again, to air my longing,
And to be out on my own again

Free again, to do what I wanna do
Free again, to sing my song again
Free again, to air my longing,
To be out on my own again

"Bad Seeds" (Beat Happening)

They keep us apart from the other kids
They try to keep us from each other

"We're no good" is what they say
But we just see this world in a different way

'Cause we're bad, bad seeds
Bad, bad, bad bad seeds
We're bad, bad seeds
Bad, bad

They make alot of rules
They tell alot of lies
If we don't wanna, we won't behave
And they can't make us, cause we can't be made

'Cause we're bad, bad seeds
Bad, bad, bad bad seeds
We're bad, bad seeds
Bad, bad

A new generation from the teenage nation
This time, let's do it right

We're bad, bad seeds
Bad, bad, bad bad seeds
We're bad, bad seeds
Bad, bad

We're bad, bad seeds
Bad, bad, bad bad seeds
We're bad
