On Our Big Fat Merry-Go-Round Lyrics

Call Me Blue

What a great world we all live in
Even better, what a time to be here
So break a leg now
Soon all the world will be a stage
Too many actors sitting on high chairs

Call me blue
Call me blue again
Call me blue
Call me blue

Sold your soul now
Too much bathroom music
It turns your brain to slush
When you watch too much
On the TV, on the radio
Turn it up now, cause that don't turn it off no
We need cotton pickers we need [?]
Don't press on too hard

(chorus)

I Want to Kill Something

What gives you the right to stick your hand in my pocket
I've worked hard for my things, you just can't take them
You, you, you, you, you, you, you, you cry like an animal from the pack
And I never, ever said it was fair and I can't see the point in talking to you

I want to kill something
I want to kill something
I want to kill something
I want to kill something

I didn't ask you here, this weight that I'm feeling
Two wrongs might make this right, revenge is fleeting
I call like an animal with an instinct
And contempt springs to mind when I think of what used to mine

(chorus X2)

I'll Always Be Grateful

Nine long months you've spent thinking of me
And all the following years
Spent between the laughter and tears
Self-denial you gave, too good to shout it out loud
There's a second love, but blood is thicker than skin

I'll always be grateful
I'll always be grateful
I'll always be grateful
For you

And the man's done his best with those old-fashioned ways
And I know you've tried hard, I can see it in your face
If I had of known then what I could have known now
I hate to patronize and even more I hate to criticize

(chorus)

I must be painfully dull to do what I have done
By not showing love to those people that I love
But, still you accept what I've done proving time and time again
That someday I realize, but by then it's all too late

(chorus)

And I'll never be hateful

My Little Lighthouse

You give me inspiration
You give me love
My little lighthouse
And the brilliant things that you do
I think I could like you

Yes, we could walk for awhile
Or simple talk for awhile
We could watch a video show
Or catch a picture show, don't you know
We could shower, put on a change of clothes
And go where everyone goes
We could stay in
Get a cheap bottle of wine and dine

(chorus)

We could go where the wind blows o'er your hair
As it blows, watch it show the sky, the sky is much darker now
But you wouldn't like that, no, you wouldn't like that
And if I could see out, I wouldn't have to shout
There's no need to pout

(chorus)

We could take a weekend away
Do holiday things, get drunk and fall down
And no aspirations you hold
No heart made of gold, tell things just as they're told
So let me tell you now there's no silver lining
There's those that don't want to see
And the story so far rings like a shotgun in your head

(chorus)

Watch Out You're Dead

Get get on up
Get get on down
I can see your face
It looks like mine
No need to paint your face white
No need for a suntan

Put your head on the tracks
Closer, closer, closer, closer, closer, closer, close
I can see the light
Steel on steel, steel on steel, steel on steel, steel on steel, steel on
steel, steel
Here comes the train, train, train, train
Watch out you're dead
Train, train, train, train
Watch out your dead
Train, train, train, train
Watch out you're dead

Get, get on up
Get, get back down again
I can see your church, it looks like mine
No need for a protest, what we need is a prospect

(chorus)

Don't Ever Think You're Different

If you like you can smoke a cigarette
You can put some funny paint on it
Don't ever think you're different

If you like you can fly a plane
You can drive a fast car, [?], kick a ball
Don't ever think you're different

If you like you can do a foxtrot
You can pull the walls, dive, jump or twist
Don't ever think you're different

If you like you can be an actor
You can write a poem, drop a bomb, shoot an animal
Don't ever think you're different

If you like you can think in colors
You can white elephant, dark horse, black sheep
Don't ever think you're different

You can try screaming at anything
You can try to get it out of you
Don't ever think you're different

Don't ever think you're different

Don't ever think you're different

That's Not The Truth

Down let it down
Make it all up
Now go home
You [?]
Tell those bigger lies
You tell too well
That's all that matters boys
The story 'll sell
If you believe what they're saying
You've read the profile
Read it again
'Cause they say so
It's not how many songs
It's how many scars
'Cause they say so
They've got it all wrong

That's not the truth
No, no, no,
That's not the truth
No, no, no,
And if you believe that that's the truth, the whole truth
Take it all down
Some stupid, bloody hypocrite is sitting on my shoulder

Now, [?]
Open your mouth
Before your heart
And fabricate
It's too late
You look the fool
No, not I
And just for one minute
If you could jump into your world
Now write a script, not a scroll
You're young not old
Now say so
Now you've got it made
Now you get paid and that's what matters
You've got it all wrong

That's not the truth
No, no, no,
That's not the truth
No, no, no,
And if you believe that's the truth, the whole truth
Then take it all down
Some stupid, poxy journalist is sitting on my shoulder

That's not the truth
No, no, no,
That's not the truth
No, no, no,
That's not the truth, truth, truth, truth, truth, truth

Love of the Eighties

Call in the bellringer
Call in the preacher
Call out the army
Call out the government warning

Love of the eighties
Love, love of the eighties

Call out the science man
And give him the poor hand
Call out the advertising campaign
And the media and the press, because

Love of the eighties
Love, love of the eighties

Violent Love

You know I love you
For the next ten minutes at least
Why can't we get married
Then let the boredom set in

Vi vi vi vi violent love
Vi vi vi vi violent love
Vi vi vi vi violent love
Violent love

Now you've hit her
But you didn't mean to hit too hard
At least not the first time
Or the second or the third of the fourth time

(chorus)

Another quick one in the hand
Later I can give to my wife
When I get home
I'm sure she's waiting up there

(chorus)

Love Quarry

Babe, you're driving me mad
If you drive any faster, I'm dead
I've bent over backwards, bent upside down
The bags under my eyes
Try to understand
You owe me that much

Take me to the love quarry
Take me to the love quarry

Babe, what do I have to do
There's got to be a way to impress you
Fast cars, fast holidays, fast lights
Is that what you want
You can't see further than your next ambition
You're a mental acrobat with [?] addiction

Take me to the love quarry
Take me to the love quarry

Cutie pie
I can call you that
Can't I
Now that we're lovers
Piling on the agony
Playing violins to unfinished symphonies

Take me to the love quarry
Take me to the love quarry
Why don't you take, take, take, take me to the love quarry
Why don't you take, take, take, take me to the love quarry

Clump Of Trees

How can I say just how I feel
Do you not know, or is this not real dear
One thing I know, there's blood in a stone

Imagine a weight inside my chest
If you should go that weight would crush my bones dear
And what makes it worse is that this really hurts

Like a clump of trees
Don't cut me down
Evergreen
Sometimes blue
Evergreen
Sometimes blue
And you can not see the wood for a clump of trees
Trees, trees
Bah do do do

Like a star when it falls its light lingers on
Just like my heart just a little more slowly
From the sea, to the roots, to the trees
It's burning time once more
And more and more times
Must the trees fall down
To leave my heart linger on

Like a clump of trees
Don't cut me down
Evergreen
Sometimes blue
Evergreen
Sometimes blue
When you can not see the wood for a clump of trees
Like a clump of trees
Don't cut me down
Evergreen
Sometimes blue
Evergreen
Sometimes blue
And you can not see
Can not see
Can not see the wood for a clump of trees

Stone the Crows

I've said before
This is such [?]
I could sound like Mel and Kim
Wouldn't that be nice

Stone the crows
Stone all the hacks
Stone the S.A.W.
Why don't you stone, stone me

I have no heart
I have no song
You can always trust on a S.A.W.
To make things go wrong

Stone the crows
Stone all the S.A.W.s
Stone all the hacks
Why don't you stone, stone me

I'm programmed to
I'm told what to do
I'm good looking, dumb and tall
Now I've got it all

Stone the crows
Stone all the hacks
Stone the S.A.W.
Why don't you stone, stone me
Why don't you stone, stone me, me, me, me, me, me

Hay When the Sun Shines

When I grow up I want to be an airline pilot
When I get old I want to be an airplane pilot
Yes, you can share that dream
If you can make it seem
Like ice in the springtime, a merry-go-round going round the wrong way

Hay when the sun shines
Hay when the sun shines
Hay when the sun shines
Hay when the sun, sun shines

Now it's all politics
Yes, it's all lunatics
Nice people, nice suits and ties
Filling us with wonderful lies
Listen son, I know you know what's good
So vote for me as all good boys would
Can't you see I promise you the world
And now you only get to see it

(chorus)

Why should I want to leave here
Give me just one good reason
I can almost count on fingers
All the young people left here
I'm off to find fame and fortune
And a handful of self-respect too
So I follow in the footsteps
To the pace of prodigal son

(chorus)

Freak Out

When they gonna drop the big one
It's gonna be sooner than you think
Don't be a drag, be a scalliwag
Go out and get a new haircut

Freak out, honey
Freak out

Don't take a bite from forbidden fruit
All is not fair in love and war
Take your hand from your trousers
Taught to be a boy, not a man, get a girlfriend

Freak out, honey
Freak out

Time to be a weirdo
Go on be a devil
Wow! Baby, that's cool! Groovy! Far out!
Dig a big hole and jump in

Freak out, honey
Freak out

Woo hoo hoo hoo hoo ha ha ha ha ha
Woo hoo hoo hoo hoo ha ha ha ha ha

Had a free ticket [?]
Jeanie got snagged
Wear a loud shirt
Got a clap on the back
Dream about the beach boy
You can be a holiday
Lots of sun, fun
And a [?]

Freak out, honey
Freak out

You can have you cake and eat it
Serve yourself to me on a plate
Learn from the past [?]
And not your [?]
Go on your own
You have to blow your own jumper [?]

Freak out, honey
Freak out
Freak out, freak out
