Track Name: Anyway (Acoustic)
Anyway

Come on make it easy on yourself
If you’d only ask for help
Anyway you need to
Anyway you ought to try it
Behind the outside of within
We could start it all again
Anyway you need to
Anyway is all

Surprise, surprise said the King to the Queen
He’d been flicking through the papers but he couldn’t be seen
And his better half said
You could make it instead
If you followed all the pictures with a brain in your head

Back in the jungle when the lights came on
She was staring at the monkeys when the people had gone
And that phone don’t ring
You could call it a waste
And every day she swears she’s getting out of the place

Ahh….etc
Anyway you need to
Anyway you ought to try it
Anyway is all it takes
To make me think I’m something I can’t be
Anyway means everything to me
Behind the outside lies a secret that’s impossible to take
Suppose it’s only what you make it
No one else can change it

Anyway you need to
Anyway you ought to try it
Behind the outside of within
We could start it all again

Anyway you need to (repeat etc)
Track Name: Strange Attraction (Acoustic)
Strange Attraction

Dying to please you to tempt you and tease you
They’re everything you’ll never be
Dead on the cover you need them to suffer
So you can vicariously
Strange how they move so in tune to our moods
And they’re making sure everyone knows
Better informed now we see how they’re naked
Beneath all their fabulous clothes
And I…..

Some strange attraction the latest addiction
Love me for all that I am
A twisted disease and it brings no relief
And no one at all understands
But they can…

Blaming intrusion they scream for seclusion
Now they have all that they need
The limelight provided, defined then divided
And killed of the best of the breed
Viewed from afar it’ll seem so bizarre
The screams for attention and love
Emotional retards, propped up by bastards
Who milk them for all that it’s worth
And too much is never enough

Some strange attraction the latest addiction
Love me for all that I am
A twisted disease and it brings no release
And no one at all understands
But they can…..

A shifting of focus
The players, the jokers
The musical high kings and queens
The Gods of our time
Clearly out of their minds
When it ain’t quite the way that they dreamed
Still they dream

Some strange attraction the latest addiction
Love me for all that I am
A twisted disease and there is no release
‘Cos theres no one at all understands
But they can…
