Track Name: Whadyawanna
Whadyawanna do with your life , boy?
Sing
If you're happy
Dance till you die
A ring of roses
for my love
A single tear
for joy.
Yeah
go tell the wizard
Someone needs a Brain
Strayed from the path
Just for a laugh
Again
Somebody told me a story
Of diamonds on the road
I told it to my friend
He said
I can't pay the toll
Track Name: Like A Hole In The Head
Like A Hole In The Head - (For Anne)

And let the light shine through
There's nothing else you can do

OOOooooHHHhhhMMMmmmmmmm.......

If you be needing me
Like i been needing you
Then baby we'll make it through

CHR:
Like a hole in the head
Sometimes i wish i were dead
Life can be cruel
Is a golden rule

And let the light shine through
There's nothing else you can do
Just let your light shine through

Another friend died today
And I got so much to say
That I am struck
...dumb

Gonna hunt down God
And put him on the hob
And cook him
'till he's done

Now your love lingers on
In this peculiar song
Where nothing is quite like it seems
Could be a dream
We're all in a fantasy
Scarred by reality
Scared of a whisper
Not a scream
Scared of a whisper
...Not a scream

Track Name: All The FUSES Have Blown
DEMO
"All the FUSES Have Blown"
Written and recorded in 2002
Taken from the 2010 album
"The Return of Baron Solemacher"

It's a,
Scarey big world out there
And there's
Plenty of Wolves and Bears
Animals are we all
God help us
Should civilization fall

We're so, Secure with all we own
What if,
All the Fuses had blown
Tescos looted and bare
No more
Petrol to get us there

CHR:
Got no, Rhythm. But i got a swing
That says a lot of things
Got no, Wisdom. But i got a grin
To keep it all in...

Telling time by the sun
Wait for Harvest to come
Precious seed to be sown
Simple need to be known
Simple Needs to be Known
Coz All the Fuses have blown

Tell me
How do we plan to survive
No more
Rules to keep us alive
Anarchy won for all
There's no
Government left to fall

It's every man for himself
Gotta feed the family
Somehow, Someway
We'll make it to the next day
And every night we'll pray
How could we have been so Blind
How could we have been so Blind
How could we have been So Blind?
It was there all along
At the end of the song
When we all get along, and sing
When We All Get Along and Sing!

It's a...
Scarey big world out there
And there's
Plenty of Wolves and Bears
Animals are we all
God help us
Should Civilization fall
Should Civilization fall
Should Civilization
... fall

Strawb/AKOO STIK 2002
Track Name: No More of That
Verses all written by Strawb
Chorus adapted from "No More of That" by SLF

Gimmee this, Gimmee that
Gimmee this, Gimmee that
Gimmee this, Gimmee that
Gimmee this, Gimmee that...

"Rock Stars think they're Preachers
and the Preachers think they're Rock Stars
Yet they only bark and bray
coz they all have Nothing to say

Hollywood is full of guns
And they wonder why? we all want some
And they always shoot to kill
To give the audience a thrill

The Revolution's on Pay Per View
Radiating through PS2
Monitored at our Own Request
And the Pizza's Free with an Acid Test

President U.K.
Is there any More
To Say...
...per-shaw!

Matrix Monkeys one and all
Deaf and dumb we blindly fall
Upon our knees and Pray
We'll win the Lottery one day

Read the papers watch the news
The world has got Millenium Blues
And the temperature is rising high
How many more must die?
To feed the lies...

Why Did You Lie To Us?
Why Did You Lie To Us?

Eden, Paradise, Heaven on Earth
Can you afford what a Soul is worth?
Many have thought they could
For the Greater good

How Precious is each breath you take
How delicate the Love we make
Open up your eyes
Face up to the Lies
This World is Paradise for All
Wake up to The Call
This World is Paradise for All
Wake up to The Call"

chr:
"OH! We want no more of That
You Can't sweep us under the matt
I said we want no more of That!"
