Track Name: Poor Boy
Reading your book, I can't put it down: all you achieved despite your sickness.
Your sombre tones, your pure melody, share my pensive melancholy.

Feeling low, fear I'll fall if I follow you down there.
Poor Boy I know how the disconnection can grow.

Simple and short: I don't think I could ever write so eloquently.
The moon and the stars, the see and the sky: do you see them now you can fly?

'Been feeling low but I will not fall if I follow you down there.
Poor Boy I find your sweet songs give me fleeting piece of mind.
Track Name: Secondary Now
Born from burning vanity, playing on your insanity.
Drawing in the voyeurs who've gone and made you their fantasy.

All the sound is secondary now.
As they queue and scheme to show you how they want you, love.

Folded arms and gritted smiles and it's over all too soon.
Emptier than the room is full, hide my eyes and flee the cold.

All the sound is secondary now.
As they queue and dream to show you how they want you, love.

Oh, if in doubt I'll hear you out.
Track Name: Unlike You
So close to being a real crime, you hope the next days fly by.
Mourning your dreams of the big time, lost in the blink of an eye.
No way of seeing it coming, it's hard to know what we can say
to counter your to-ing and fro-ing. I can't help but thinking

it's Unlike You.

A number that's ever occurring, to often for coincidence.
Clouding the mind with obsession, clocking your every move.
In dates and in times and in stories, anxiously, constantly dwell.
On fears that someday in the future, you just might be proving.

It's Unlike You.
Track Name: One of Them
She's got a way of walking,
and it's got all the women here talking.
Is she one of them, 'cause she sure ain't like one of us?

Red curly hair to her shoulder,
d-dirty one and not a day older.
Dressed to kill, all it takes to thrill one of us.
One of us.

Takes a special immaculate feeling, just a feeling, yeah
to create such a powerful dream, can't stop me dreaming, no.
Takes a side not all of us can muster, hot and flustered I
wonder what it'd be like to take home one of them, one of them.

Shopping for food in Appleland (www.appleland.co.jp/),
and my mind's not quite on the task at hand,
'cause I seen her smile in the bakery aisle buying bread.
Just as she's reaching for Hovis,
'can't help my eyes wander down to her pelvis
Waaa curse my brain 'cause it's moved again from my head, oh no. (Oh, Oh, No!)

Takes a special immaculate feeling, just a feeling, yeah,
to create such a powerful dream, can't stop me dreaming, no.
Takes a side not all of us can muster, hot and flustered I
wonder what it'd be like to take home one of them, one of them.

(One of them) x 4
She's got a way of walking (One of Them) x 2
She's got a, she's got a, aaaaooooo.
