The Captain

"Well I don’t have as many friends because
I’m not as pretty as I was
I’ve kicked myself at times because I’ve lied
So I will have to learn to stand my ground
I’ll tell ‘em I won’t be around
I’ll move on over to your town and hide

And you be the Captain
And I’ll be no-one
And you can carry me away if you want to
And you can lay low
Just like your father and if
I tread upon your feet you just say so
‘Cos you’re The Captain

We’re All Gonna Die Someday

"We’re all gonna die someday lord
We’re all gonna die someday
Mama’s on pills daddy’s over the hill
But we’re all gonna die someday
Well it hurts down here on Earth lord
It hurts down here on Earth
It hurts down here cause we’re running out of beer
But we’re all gonna die someday

We’re all gonna die someday lord
We’re all gonna die someday
Mama’s on pills daddy’s over the hill
But we’re all gonna die someday

Well all of my friends are stonned lord
All of my friends are stonned
Janie got stonned cause she couldn’t get boned
But we’re all gonna die someday

We’re all gonna die someday lord
We’re all gonna die someday
Mama’s on pills daddy’s over the hill
But we’re all gonna die someday

Well they can all kiss my ass lord
They can all kiss my ass
If they want to kiss my ass well they better make it fast
‘Cos...

Nullarbor Song

When the fire burns out here
It’s brighter than the city lights
Warmer than a heart of gold
And dingo’s howl just to break the
silence

The sun comes up just to break the cold
Last night I woke
With the stars looking back at me
Swallowing the sky
I felt no anger

A Million Tears

Take my hand
Break my stride
Make me smile
For everytime I’ve cried

Hold my heart
In the palm of your hand
Don’t listen to it breakin’
Just listen to the band

Do you wanna ride in my car
Its parked out on the street
Or just stay with me a while
Before I fall asleep
Take these tears
Wash your skin
I’m havin’ trouble breathin’
Since you walked in

My hands are tied
My head is reelin’
My eyes have cried
A million tears
From wishin’ you were here

All my life
I’ve welcomed pain
I’ve made up more excuses
To bring it back again

Now I’m here
And I’ll drink to the shame
I’ll drink to the madness
That made me this way

These Pines

"These pines are not the ones that i’m used to
They won’t carry me home when I cry
Am I too far gone to recover
Or can I turn if I try
Should I trade my soul for another
Should I stay and pretend that I’m happy
Like so many times before

Yeah these pines
Are not mine
They don’t smell so sweet
like the ones in my mind
And I search the needles
‘Til I run out of time
But I don’t see you in These Pines.

Di I stumble or falter my words
When I’m saying everything is all right
I’m not one to release my depression
But these trees bring it out every night
Well i don’t talk ‘cos I’m trying to listen
To the wind take me home through these leaves
But it’s quiet and don’t hear nothing
Cos the wind doesn’t blow through these trees
"
