Lyrics

Give It Up Brother

I fell in love I won't repeat her name
And threw it away trying to play her at her favourite game

She tore me up and she left me for dead
I needed her love like a hole in the head
But never the less I confess I'd do it all again

I’m telling you now, give it up brother give it up brother. You hear what I'm saying
I'm telling you now give it up brother give it up brother I'll say it again
I'm telling you now give it up brother, give it up brother, you hear what I'm saying
I'm telling you now give it up brother, give it up brother,
you’re playing a dangerous game

You know her hair late at night looks like a red sunrise
You got to give more than you got to keep her satisfied

She dresses in black from her head to her toes, and when she's alone no one knows here she goes, but she’ll give enough of her love to make your head explode

I’m telling you now, give it up brother give it up brother. You hear what I'm saying
I'm telling you now give it up brother give it up brother I'll say it again
I'm telling you now give it up brother, give it up brother, you hear what I'm saying
I'm telling you now give it up brother, give it up brother,
you’re playing a dangerous game

How Animal Are You

Gasoline Jean yeah she knows what I mean,
She blows cigarette smoke through my tambourine
Always seeks boys who are dirty and mean
But she’s never found one who’s quite so keen.

But I keep a- looking, I keep a- looking, looking for that soul behind her eyes.
And I keep a- looking, I keep a- looking, a vicious little thing is all I find

So boy, how animal, how animal are you?
So boy, how animal, how animal are you?

Propane Jane spent a year on the game,
She got married and changed her name.
Now she lives alone, say’s ‘their all the same’,
‘They could never keep up’ and that’s the shame.

But I keep a- looking, I keep a- looking, looking for that soul behind her eyes.
And I keep a- looking, I keep a- looking, a vicious little thing is all I find

So boy, how animal, how animal are you?
So boy, how animal, how animal are you?
So boy, how animal, how animal are you?
So boy, how animal, how animal are you?

Well if what you seek is who you are then baby you’re a sure-fire superstar,
Spending your time in your jaguar,
You’re a hundred Mile-an-hour Avatar.

So boy, how animal, how animal are you?
So boy, how animal, how animal are you?
So boy, how animal, how animal are you?
So boy, how animal, how animal are you?

Railway Road

I was raised near the tracks in a lonely part of town
And I worked on the line until they closed the station down
And I watched as the streets filled with the ghosts of poor men’s dreams
And I held on to hope that one day I'd finally leave

Oh this world can be deceiving, there's no change from day to day
When there's nothing to believe in hope slips away

So come on baby, believe me when I say to you that lately. Girl I've been so low
And I can't face it, I've been waiting for the day that someone takes me far away from Railway Road

All the years that I fought just to gain control
Of this life that I've bought for the price of my own soul

Oh this world can be deceiving, there's no change from day to day
When there's nothing to believe in hope slips away

So come on baby, believe me when I say to you that lately. Girl I've been so low
And I can't face it, I've been waiting for the day that someone takes me far away from Railway Road

The Kids Feel Underrated

Fairhurst/Menguy

Tears fall in the bathroom, and the cartoons play too loud.
She calls up her sister, said “I’ve missed you, will you help me out?”
This is not what I wanted, I didn’t flaunt it for sure
I’ve been looking for redemption, the devils henchman are at the door

I’ve been chasing rainbows, police in plain clothes, give up your cash for gold.
Ive found a quick solution, you talk pollution, how could you be so bold?

And the demoralisation to work for a nation run by thieves and fools
And we’re taught to surrender our class and gender in the office built schools
This is not what I wanted, I didn’t flaunt it for sure
I’ve been looking for redemption, the devils henchman are at the door

I’ve been chasing rainbows, police in plain clothes, give up your cash for gold.
I’ve found a quick solution, you talk pollution, how could you be so bold?
And the Kids Feel Underrated, aggravated by a life they lead
And I wish you would see it then you’d believe it for your heart would bleed.

The Truth Will Be Found

Oh you might be the child of Satan or you might be the son of God,
You might be a revelation, written in the fog
One of these days, its gonna come a round

You might be a politician or you might be a mother’s son,
You might just stand there wishing that you owned a Gun.
One of these days, its gonna come around
Oh one of these days the truth will be found

You might be a great dictator or you might be on the run,
You might be a money maker retiring in the Sun
One of these days, its gonna come around
Oh one of these days the truth will be found

Oh you might be the child of Satan or you might be the son of God,
You might be a revelation, written in the fog
One of these days, its gonna come a round

To Catch A Fading Light

Tell me why, why your feeling low
Maybe I can help you
And If it's true, that you can't let go
Maybe I ought to know

I should of tried to make you see
That you were on my mind
Forever chasing who we used to be
To Catch a fading light

Time goes by, and the cold winds blow
People change like the seasons
But in my heart you remain the same
No mother where I go

I was trying hard to be the one you need
But I couldn't get it rite
It ain't as easy as it used to be
To Catch a fading light
