Track Name: Kid King Kong
Guess who's back
The Monkey's home again
Sky turns black
and the Jungle groans again
I hack hack hack
through Nature's Own again
Between the cracks
into the Nietzsche zone again
Just got back to take control again

Monkey See, Donkey Don't

Don't look now
but the Monkey's whole again
I'm on the prowl
so here we go again.
Hounds wont howl
and the cock wont crow again
when I'm around
get inside your hole again
I just came down
to take control again

Monkey See, Donkey Don't

She puts her red dress on,
but not when I'm around.
The beat goes on,
will you be my baby now.
The good die young in the jungles all around.
I'm ten feet long and I'm not your Lady now.
I'm Kid King Kong and I don't mean maybe.
What a Monkey see, donkey don't.

All the Zoo Music Girls they go
and all the Pinheads they go
and all the Preverse Cowgirls they go
and all the Zoo Music Girls they go

Crack my back
on the roley pole again
Don't come back
with your sack of woe again
I'm P.C. Mac
and I'm on the go
I got one Big Mac
and a Diet Coke again
The Goat pokes crack
and The Beast is Whole again
So whack my sack,
don't make me blow again.

Fishbone Town,
the stink is on again.
Fish Don't Drown,
just float alone again
Where's my crown?
show me to my throne again
Just got found
in the Nietzsche zone again
Can't stop now
I'm on a roll again

Monkey See, Donkey Don't

She puts her red dress on,
but not when I'm around.
The beat goes on,
will you be my baby now.
The good die young in the jungles all around.
I'm ten feet long and I'm not your Lady now.
I'm Kid King Kong and I don't mean maybe.
What a Monkey see, donkey don't.

All the Zoo Music Girls they go
and all The Pinheads they go
and all the Seaweed Creatures they go
and all the Zoo Music Girls they go
Track Name: Where The Water Tastes Like Wine
In Time,
for such a long long time,
I'd been down.
But now I'm feelin' fine.
Cloud Nine
where the water tastes like wine.
Your problems
well none of them are mine.

Snakes don't die,
it's just the skin that's peeling.
Please don't cry,
I've lost that lovin' feeling.

Been 'round,
I been everywhere man.
I'm old and tired,
but too young to settle down.

Snakes don't die,
it's just the skin that's peeling.
Please don't cry,
I've lost that lovin' feeling.

Meanwhile,
I've moved across the sky in aeroplanes.
But in time,
it all ends in Time.

Snakes don't die,
it's just the skin that's peeling.
Please don't cry,
I've lost that lovin' feeling.
Track Name: Voodoo Talking
What do you say when your Love is gone?
Certain things make you feel so (...)
That's what you say when your Love is gone.
Certain things'll make you feel so (…)
And that's what you say when your Love is gone.

That's what you say when your Love is strong
Certain things all make you feel so (…)
That's what you say when your Love is strong

It wasn't you it was the Voodoo talking.
It's not you, it's me.
I took a wrong turn down this road I'm walking,
it turned into a dead-end street.

That's what you say when your Love goes wrong
Certain things'll make you feel so (…)
and that's what you say when your Love goes wrong.

Spent my whole Life being on probation.
Was I ever really here at all?
Just a dry run for hibernation?
No-one really cares at all.

That's what you say when your Love is gone
Certain things all make you feel so (…)
That's what you say when your Love is gone.
That's what you say when your Love is gone.
Your Love is gone
Your Love is gone
Your Love is gone
Love is gone.
Track Name: Widow's Peak
We don't speak
if we don't need to.
So we don't speak anymore.

We don't move
more than we have to.
So we don't get around much anymore.

But when I close my eyes
I picture you by my side
with your head upon my shoulder
whispering lullabyes.

Widow's Peak
is where I found you.
Underneath a dirty Autumn sky
Widow's Peak
is where I left you
in a heap, alone to die.

And when I close my eyes
and try and picture you by my side.
Now you're laying there before me
and I'm whispering your goodbyes.

Widow's Peak
I should have never let you go
Now I can't sleep
I can't speak
and I can't cry.

Widow's Peak
is where I lost you.
Widow's Peak
is where I let you go.
Now we don't speak
cos we don't need to.
So we don't speak anymore.
Track Name: Snowstorms in Hawaii
Alone at night
I feel the world at hand
Breathing in and out
as by command.
I fall in Love
but in Love I can't stand.
My heart, my lungs, my spleen
don't understand.

That they can fly away
That they can fly away

Alone at night
I feel the world inside me.
Close my eyes
and think of snowstorms in Hawaii.
She's all white
a rosebud
smashed inside me.
Her face, her hands, her heart
all history behind me.

They can fly away
yeah they can fly away.

They say you have the strongest hold
with open hands
but I just can't understand
why everything I try to keep just flies away

Fly away fly away
Fly away
Lie awake
Track Name: Misty Light
Misty light in silent faces,
a memory of you,
and your laugh
I loved at the start.

But in the end the circumstances
that led me to you,
were the ones that would tear us apart.

In the moment
your eyes open
and in that moment on.
In the morning
words are spoken
that come out all wrong.

Misty light in a silent place
in memory of you
where your shadow
wont leave me alone.
That delightful smile upon your face
that bled me from you
with a whispered prayer
to your bones.

In the moment
your eyes opened
and in that moment on.
In the morning
words are spoken
that come out all wrong.
Track Name: Invisible You
It feels like a hundred million miles away,
it could be a hundred million more.
Not one among us knows for certain,
or just how the curtain falls.

But when I close my eyes
all that I can see is You

In that ineffable moment
when you leave and you feel your body melt,
be sure that in that very moment,
you'll know exactly how it felt.

And then I close my eyes
and all that I can see is You.
When I look up here in the light,
dancing with Invisible You.

Up there in the light
Invisible You
so sure of yourself
and just what to do.

A click of your heels,
and heads will drop.
All-Knowing and feeling
just when to stop.
