Ambulance

I ain't got
Nothing to be scared of,
No I ain't got
Nothing to be scared of
No I ain't got
Anything to be scared of
'Cos I love you

I was born out of love
It's the only way to come into this world
I know I'm not all there
But I'm getting, getting, getting there
If you let me live my life
I'll stay with you to the end
And I know, lord
I'm nearly there
I want to tell you this

I ain't got
Nothing to be scared of, no
No I ain't got
Nothing to be scared of, no
No I ain't got
Anything to be scared
Cause I love you

I ain't got
Nothing to be scared of
No ain't got
Nothing to be scared of [x2]

Out of Time

Where's the love song?
To set us free
Too many people down
Everything turning the wrong way around
And I don't know what love will be
But if we start dreaming now
Lord knows we'll never leave the clouds

[CHORUS:]
And you've been so busy lately
that you haven't found the time
To open up your mind
And watch the world spinning gently out of time

Feel the sunshine on your face
It's in a computer now
Gone to the future, way out in space

[REPEAT CHORUS (x2)]

Tell me I'm not dreaming but are we out of time?
(We're) out of time

Out of time [x4]

Crazy Beat

Crazy beat crazy beat yeah yeah
Crazy beat crazy beat yeah yeah
Crazy beat crazy beat yeah yeah
Crazy beat crazy beat yeah yeah

You got to get it together
You're shooting at me
You're just a teenage industry
Why are the C.I.A. having fun
They think you're clever 'cos you've blown up your lungs

But I love to hear that crazy beat (yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah)
Gets the people dancing on their feet (yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah)
And I love to hear the paradise
I love my brothers on a Saturday night yeah

Crazy beat crazy beat yeah yea [repeat]
Break up

I'm on my mobile and I'm talking to the president
I got to get him for the money I've spent
Trying to get him to party with me
And even offered him ecstasy

But I love to hear that crazy beat (yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah)
Gets the people dancing on their feet (yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah)
And I love to hear the paradise
I love my sister and I love her tonight

Crazy beat crazy beat yeah yea

Crazy beat crazy beat yeah yeah
Break up...It's a beat

And I love to hear the paradise
I love my brothers on a Saturday night

Gets the people dancing on their feet (yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah)
And I love to hear the paradise
I love that feeling and I love her tonight

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Good Song

Waiting, I got no town to hide in
The country's got a hold of my soul
TV's dead and there ain't no war in my head
And you seem very beautiful to me

Sleeping but my works not done
I could be lying on an atom bomb
I'll take care
Cause I know you'll be there
You seem very beautiful to me

It is the rest of your life keeps a rolling and rolling
Picture in my pocket looks like you
It is the rest of your life keeps a rolling, rolling, rolling along

On the Way to the Club

On my way to the club
I fell down a hole
All the people there
Said you come alone
And I, I just want to be, darling with you
The music's made that way
My eyes aren't blue
There's nothing I can do

So I stayed in the club
Just rewarding myself
Happiness could turn into something else
And I just wanna be, darling with you
The music's made that way
My eyes aren't blue, there's nothing I can do

Brothers and Sisters

Brothers and sisters
Rebuild your lives
We're all drug takers
Give us something tonight

A cartoon in a ketamine
Jelly mixed with margarine
White doves from the war machine
Every body movin
Cocaine is for murderers
Codeine for the jurors
Caffeine been through all of us
All the people horny
Crackwhores back in town again
Eggships sniffing benelyn
Burning all the oil again
Smoking makes you holy
Textin abbreviates the brain
Aspirin takes away the pain
Rock on, everyone the same
That's the way it is

Brothers and sisters
Rebuild your lives
We're all drug takers
Give us something tonight

Rohypnol like a chloroform
Sugar from the day you are born
Washed out like a dinosaur
Really don't believe it.
Sticky sniffing superglue
sulphates keep you in a zoo
Monkeys turning into you
Everybody horney
Acid good up on the moors
Gimpo stops you getting bored
Beta's busy making laws
Procaine stops you screaming
Librium for anxiety
Drinking it our society
That's the way it is
that's the way it is even when we're pissed

Caravan

Caravan's lost
In the sun and the dust
No-one loves you
When you are lost
Yeah I'm a clown
Pulling my world down
I believe I was strong
But you are the one
And when it comes, you'll feel the weight of it,
The weight of it
The day will come when you'll get away from it,
Away from it

Sometimes everything is easy
Sometimes everything is easy
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la

I try to quit
But my heart won't buy it
I got family
The caravan comes back for me

And when it comes you'll feel the weight of it,
The weight of it
And the day will come when you'll get away from it
Away from it

Sometimes everything is easy
Sometimes everything is easy
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la (repeat)

We’ve Got a File on You

We got a file on you
We got a file on you
We got a file on you
We got a ... on you

We got a file on you
We got a file on you
We got a file on you
We got a ... on you

Moroccan Peoples Revolutionary Bowls Club

The trees are spinning oxygen
They're the rockets we should fear
If we go and let them off then we will disappear
Then we will disappear, surely we will disappear

The road is hot and dusty
The desert needs a beer
But if we go and blow it up then we will disappear
Then we will disappear, surely we will disappear
If we go and blow it up then we will disappear
We will disappear surely
We will disappear [x4]
We will disappear

Sweet Song

What am I to do
Someone here is really not happy
Put myself on a line
It seems I never got through to you
So I wean myself off slowly

I'm a darkened soul
My streets all pop music and gold
Our lives are on TV
You switch off and try to sleep
People get so lonely

I believe I believe I believe
Everything's out to sea
I believe I believe I believe I believe
That is the way it should be
I hope you feel the same

Everyone is dying
Stop crying now here comes the sun
I didn't mean to hurt you no no no
It takes time to see what you have done
So I wean myself off slowly

I believe I believe I believe
Love is the only one
I deceive I deceive I deceive I deceive
Cos' I'm not that strong
Hope you feel the same

And now it seems that we're falling apart
But I hope I see the good in you come back again
I just believed in you

Jets

Jets are like comets at sunset
Jets are like comets at sunset
Jets are like comets at sunset
Jets are like comets at sunset
Jets are like comets at sunset
Jets are like comets at sunset
Jets are like comets at sunset
Jets are like comets at sunset
Jets are like comets at sunset
Jets are like comets
Jets are like comets

Gene by Gene

I got a brain in left hand drive
I don't asleep other side
I ride a bullet like I'm Steve McQueen
Each town I intervene
A gram of keef and the barn is jumping
It's alright we got time
Got a radio hit in mind
Can't see am I blind

Every night and day (I'll never forget)
In the U.S.A....I DELETE MYSELF

Got to know you gene by gene
You're my jellybean
Get out the shower
And I'm force 15
I'm dead I'm clean
Fatboy and the barn is jumping
It's alright it's just tight

GOT to GET into A better Business
DEEP down Happiness

Every night and day (I'll never forget)
In the U.S.A.... I delete myself

I delete myself
I delete myself
I delete myself
I delete myself
I delete myself
I delete myself
I delete myself
I delete myself

Battery in Your Leg

This is a ballad for the good times
So put a battery in your leg
Put a rock beat over anything
Get it stuck there in your head
You can be with me

I got nothing to rely on
I've broken every bone
Everybody's stop believing
But you know you're not alone
You can be with me

This is a ballad for the good times
And all the dignity we had
Don't get het up on the evil things
You ain't coming back
You can be with me
If you want to be
You can be with me....
