Track Name: All The Rave
BLANK CANVAS
evol
Blank Canvas All I want to do is start Look what happens when you have a change of heart
Blank Canvas Opened up my eyes to see Nothing staring back at me.

Alright colour can cover grey But it won’t change when I walk away Yeah I’m starting again.
A new beginning.

Blank Canvas Full of possibilities Blank Canvas Watch me paint a masterpiece Blank Canvas
Lying in the Sunday sun Now my life has just begun.

Alright colour can cover grey But it won’t change when I walk away Yeah I’m starting again.
A new beginning.
Track Name: Suzy
SUZY
Suzy’s got black eyes in the middle of the night
Suzy don’t lose me
Suzy’s got the freedom to do what she likes.
Don’t you know that you control that?

We dance underneath different skies
you live in the still life.
How could I ever survive without my….

Suzy’s black eye’s bloom in the middle of the day
Suzy don’t lose me
And I’m wondering how I let her get away
Don’t you that you control that?

We dance underneath different skies
and you live in the still life.
How could I ever survive without my
Suzy – oh you’re leaving again.
Suzy – oh you’re leaving again?

Suzy don’t forget your sister.

Hey you’ve gone away
You leave again
Again
Don’t forget your sister
Track Name: No Reply
NO REPLY
I was walking fast through the park,
Four policemen passed,
I had to ask, ‘What is going on. Is there something wrong?’

But they turned their heads and walked on by
So I guess I got no reply.
Helicopters in the sky.

No reply
My my messages fly
Now I know what it’s like to get no reply.

I was on the top of a double decker bus
Looking over into empty office blocks
Where is everyone today?
Out to play

So I thought I’d check my phone and make sure you made it home.
But there’s nothing on display.

No reply
My my messages fly
Now I know what it’s like to get no reply.
I got no reply.
Track Name: Antony
ANTONY
Antony you are a dear friend to me.
I would like to marry thee.
Could you swing the other way?

Hey! Everybody here agrees,
Even if it’s only me
Could you swing the other way?

Antony take me to the Soho scene,
The sky’ll be lit up pink and green
And we’ll swing the other way.
Hey life it could be so gay in the old fashioned way
If you’d swing the other way.

We could meet in Scotland
You could wear your finest tartin
Underneath the rain.
The rain.
THE RAIN!
If only you would swing the other way.

I caught the plane
So I must refrain
I can’t deny
I’ll never be his bride
Track Name: Tom
TOM

Hey Hey You wanted to be with me! well this is what you get when you come a bit closer

Oh not so pretty now Oh come a little closer If you’re disappointed what did you expect?

Oh that’s cool Yeah we understand You’re not coming nearer It’s hard work being a man

Oh that’s cool Yeah we understand you (I understand you) You’re never coming nearer
It’s hard work being a man

If you’re disappointed What did you expect?

Track Name: Goodnight Catherine
GOODNIGHT CATHERINE
One driver to one car
That’s all you’ll ever see these days
Braking on the freeway.
Who do you think you are? Sitting in a metal shell
We can see your silent singing.

Goodnight Catherine ‘goodnight’
Sweet dreams
I won’t see you in the morning
I won’t see you,
You won’t be there
Because you had to be like that.

She left while he was there
He asked ‘is she still breathing?’
I said ‘I’ll double check’
And now he drives alone, Sitting in a metal shell
You can see the tears streaming

Goodnight Catherine ‘goodnight’
Sweet dreams
I won’t see you in the morning.
I won’t see you,
You won’t be there
Because you had to be like that
And who would want to be like that?

If your not sleeping
‘I’m just sleeping’
Are you dead?
‘No I’m not dead’
If you’re not sleeping I’ll presume that you are dead.
If you’re not sleeping…
‘I’m just sleeping in your head!’
Are you dead?

Oh I don’t know in the morning.
Who would want to be like that?
‘Please don’t let me be like that.’
Who would want to be like that?
Track Name: George and Judy
GEORGE AND JUDY
George is smoking roses, pulling poses
He feels so fine, feels so fine smoking
Everybody loves him
They want to touch him
He looks so fine, looks so fine posing.
Everybody wants to be
George or Judy.

Judy bought a motorbike
How she likes to ride, ride it round, round Rome.
Roman motorbikes.
They all love her.
They want to be her flying high,
Flying high Judy.
Yeah everybody wants to be George or Judy.

But George has had too many so he’s rendered invisible
Steps out to the road, yeah clambers to the middle.
Judy’s still flying fast through the night.
crash

Oh look at your lives.
This is what happens when they collide
This is what happens when luck and your lives
This is what happens when they collide
Goodbye.

Now we’re throwing roses on the posers
As they lie in wooden boxes
And no-one wants to see them let alone be them
Lying down ten foot underground
Nobody wants to be
George or Judy.
Track Name: Freddy
FREDDY
Freddy I’ve come to waste your time.
Not knowing it would be the end of mine.

He said I’m not the same boy that you thought you knew
I’ve changed quite a lot, from the model to the painter.

My memories are as pure as your skin.
But Freddy your soul rots within.

He said ‘I’m not the same boy that you thought you knew.
I’ve changed quite a lot since I sat for you.’
You’re not the same boy that brought me to life
Those eyes of azure blue hide a beast inside.

Oh look at him.
He looks so bored and lonely,
Not knowing this will change his life.

La did daaah Ba bi ba bat da scubila scat cat.
Track Name: Nothing
NOTHING
Rain falls on an empty alleyway.
She shudders as she shuts the door.
Takes a look around for the last time,
Thinking ‘what the hell did I come here for?’
I guess it doesn’t matter no more.

He’s nothing to her now.
He’s nothing. No.
He’s nothing to her now.

It’s hard to get this boat to sail
With the force of your lungs alone.
It’s hard to polish a pile of rubbish,
So why would you ever take one home?
I guess it doesn’t matter no more.

He’s nothing to her now
He’s nothing. Woah.
He’s nothing to her now.

Well I guess I won’t be seeing you for a while,
Since you did your little rain dance on the fire.
But now you know.
Now you know am I allowed to go?

He’s a loser he’s a bit fat loner
With the whole world looking up his skirt.
