Track Name: HARD TURTLE
Hard turtle -
With such an arrogant shell.
Hard turtle -
And now I see you so well.
You can tell me what Freud would say,
You can tell me the statistics ev’ry which way,
You can quote me from the old and the new
But – where are you?

Think you know it all.
No one disagrees,
That’s your proof.
Long time ago -
Well, don’t you know? -
People stopped telling you
The truth.

Hard turtle -
With such an arrogant shell.
Hard turtle -
And now I see you so well.
You can tell me what Freud would say,
You can tell me the statistics ev’ry which way,
You can quote me from the old and the new
But – where are you?

Set adrift from the shore
In your sea of hand-picked
Sycophants.
Taken in the currents,
Stolen away
By pride
And ignorance.

Hard turtle -
With such an arrogant shell.
Hard turtle -
And now I see you so well.
You can tell me what Freud would say,
You can tell me the statistics ev’ry which way,
You can quote me from the old and the new
But – where are you?

Mirror, mirror on the wall -
Can you see yourself at all?
No reflection there it seems.
Do you know just what that means?

Hard turtle -
With such an arrogant shell.
Hard turtle -
And now I see you so well.
You can tell me what Freud would say,
You can tell me the statistics ev’ry which way,
You can quote me from the old and the new
But – where are you?

Hard turtle.
Track Name: GIVE US A GOAL
The onion bag is what we want.
The onion bag is what we need.
The onion bag is where it’s going -
Come on, lads, do the deed..and..

Give us a goal, give us a goal,
Think they can beat us? They gotta be told.
Keep up the pressure, they’re gonna fold.
Come on and give us a goal!
Give us a goal, give us a goal -
Screamer, flick or a bicycle kick.
Nutmeg the goalie, that’d be slick,
Come on and give us a goal!

Give us a goal, goal, goal, give us a goal.
Give us a goal! Give us a goal!

Come on fighters at the front
And all you besties at the back.
Come on mighties of the mid-field
Let’s put them on the rack..and..

Give us a goal, give us a goal,
Think they can beat us? They gotta be told.
Keep up the pressure, they’re gonna fold.
Come on and give us a goal!
Give us a goal, give us a goal -
Screamer, flick or a bicycle kick.
Nutmeg the goalie, that’d be slick,
Come on and give us.. a goal!
Track Name: ROUNDABOUT
Give me a space, why don't you give me a space?
Give me a space, why don't you give me a space?
Give me a space, come on and give me a space,
I just wanna go round.

But no, you're busy flying by owning the scene,
Or thinking you should, know what I mean?
High in the cab of your musty, cumbersome,
Rusty, chuggalong dream.
Ah, you made us all wait for you for just too long,
Caused a vast, abandoned queue,
Stifled a billion songs.

Give me a space, why don't you give me a space?
Give me a space, why don't you give me a space?
Give me a space, come on and give me a space,
I just wanna go round.

Got my car here, haven't I?
You can't drive it - you won't let me try.
It's a gift from my daddy.
My oh my, you prefer it in an exit
While the driver legs it away.

Give me a space, why don't you give me a space?
Give me a space, why don't you give me a space?
Give me a space, come on and give me a space,
I just wanna go round.

But no, you're busy flying by owning the scene,
Or thinking you should, know what I mean?
High in the cab of your musty, cumbersome,
Rusty, chuggalong dream.
Ah, you made us all wait for you for just too long,
Caused a vast, abandoned queue,
Stifled a billion songs.

Give me a space, why don't you give me a space?
Give me a space, why don't you give me a space?
Give me a space, come on and give me a space,
I just wanna go..

Out and round and round and out,
Out and round, roundabout -
Out and round and round and out,
Out and round, roundabout -
Out and round and round and out,
Out and round, roundabout -
Out and round and round and out,
Out and round, roundabout -

You made us all wait for you for just too long.

Give me a space, why don't you give me a space?
Give me a space, why don't you give me a space?
Give me a space, come on and give me a space,
I just wanna go..

Out and round and round and out,
Out and round, roundabout -
Out and round and round and out,
Out and round, roundabout -
Out and round and round and out,
Out and round, roundabout -
Out and round and round and out,
Out and round, roundabout -

You made us all wait for you for just too long.
Track Name: BLACK HOLE
You got a black hole in your heart,
Baby, a black hole.
You got a black hole in your heart,
Baby, a black hole.
And you can live with a hole in the heart
But you gotta let the surgeon do his work.
Let him in, let him begin.

Too afraid to feel love,
Too afraid to give,
Too afraid of the pain,
Too afraid to live.
Wish you knew in your heart
How very, very loved you are.
Wish you knew, right in here,
The love that really conquers ev'ry fear,
Yes it does.

You got a black hole in your heart,
Baby, a black hole.
You got a black hole in your heart,
Baby, a black hole.
And you can live with a hole in the heart
But you gotta let the surgeon do his work.
Let him in, let him begin.

Too afraid to feel love,
Too afraid to give,
Too afraid of the pain,
Too afraid to live.
Reach out and know in your heart
How very, very loved you are.
Reach out and feel, right in here,
The love that really conquers ev'ry fear.
Yes, it does.

If you turn your back, if you walk away,
The event horizon comes closer now
Each day.
Sucked in here, sucked in there,
Nothing much left -
You're gonna disappear..
No!

You got a black hole in your heart,
Baby, a black hole.
You got a black hole in your heart,
Baby, a black hole.
And you can live with a hole in the heart
But you gotta let the surgeon do his work.
Let him in, let him begin.

Too afraid to feel love,
Too afraid to give,
Too afraid of the pain -
Find the faith to live.
Track Name: SOMETHING
Something's living in my house.
Don't believe me then,
You'll see, you'll see.
Something's living in my house,
And it isn't me,
Oh it isn't me.
Spreading the snags around,
I'm nipped in the bud
On my home ground.
Damnosa hereditas!
Embogged, I'm clogged,
I'm on my ass.

Something's living in my house.
Don't believe me then,
You'll see, you'll see.
Something's living in my house,
And it isn't me,
Oh it isn't me.
Spanner in my works -
Spoke in my wheel,
Don't know where it lurks.
To kill it, that's my goal.
It's been teaching my washing machine
To rock 'n' roll.

It brings me down, (down, bringing me down),
It brings me down, (down, bringing me down).
Ah, ah, ah, ah.

Something's living in my head.
Don't believe me then,
You'll see, you'll see.
Something's living in my head,
And it isn't me,
Oh it isn't me.
Spreading the snags around,
I'm nipped in the bud,
On my home ground.
Damnosa hereditas!
Embogged, I'm clogged,
I'm on my ass.
Track Name: SPLASH
Is life dull and dreary?
Has the weather got you down?
Saw you sitting, bone-weary,
On the last bus to town.
It may seem a grey life
But colour will have its way -
Get ready to make a splash,
Get ready to make a splash,
Come on, get ready to make a splash,
Make a splash today.

Get ready for the splash-splash
Get ready for the splash-splash-splash,
Get ready for the splash-splash-splash-splash -
Make a splash today.

Stormy skies above us,
Puddles on the ground.
The little girl in the flowery wellingtons
Listens to the sound.
Wind in the trees, wild as you please -
Wellies will have their way!
Get ready to make a splash,
Get ready to make a splash,
Come on, get ready to make a splash,
Make a splash today.

Get ready for the splash-splash
Get ready for the splash-splash-splash,
Get ready for the splash-splash-splash-splash -
Make a splash today!
