Track Name: tunnel/light
Having examined your sanity
You’re not as stable as you should be
You meditate, then you drink too much
You’d like to pray, but you buy more stuff
But don’t you worry, the future’s bright
There is a tunnel, there is a light
No don’t you worry, the future’s bright
There is a tunnel, there is a light

Having examined your general state
I have concluded that it’s not great
You don’t eat fruit, you don’t exercise
That baby face with the old man eyes?
But don’t you worry, the future’s bright
There is a tunnel, there is a light
No don’t you worry, the future’s bright
There is a tunnel, there is a light

Having examined your wellbeing
I have discovered you’re made of string
The only thing that you don’t do wrong
Is play your banjo and sing your song
So don’t you worry, the future’s bright
There is a tunnel, there is a light
No don’t you worry, the future’s bright
There is a tunnel, there is a light
Track Name: chainsaw
In the face of so much beauty, how could I be so entranced
By a Bosch AKE 40-19-S chainsaw with a 15” blade?
It cuts through wood like butter, it could easily remove a limb
It is equally at home with utility or with exacting swift revenge

The simple thrill of an electric drill was the top of the slippery slope
I thought you couldn’t have more fun than with a nail gun ‘til I got my chainsaw home
At first it seemed a few small branches would satisfy my craving
But where once I gazed on a woodland view there’s just a wasteland of wood shavings

Then with Mother Nature vanquished and a revved-up, mighty Bosch
I set off to find my enemies to re-calculate their loss
They say all men can be rapists, but I think it’s worse than that
Inside every little boy there lurks a chainsaw maniac
Track Name: boys toys
This ingenious stainless steel harness
The most seducing action ever seen at this price point
Gives you the perfect slide and grip reel seat
Guaranteed satisfaction, products you can rely on

Boys, will be boys

Self-lubricating, zippered for extra safety
Rubberised chin strap, customer demonstrations
Pocket sized tackle, extendable shaft
Fabulous whippy action, comes with protective cover

Boys, will be boys
And their toys, will make you moan
Boys, will be boys
And their toys, will drive you mad
Boys, will be boys
And their toys, will make you scream
Boys, will be boys
And their toys, will drive you crazy
Track Name: the girl with your name
She shared your name
Both about 19 as beautiful as we could be
We’re here and it’s now and beyond it there’s nothing to see
Or ever going to be
The girl with your name
Can’t take her eyes from mine, I can’t wipe the smile from my face
No coyness or guile when you both know you’re in the same place
Last night I dreamt I fell in love
Just so… unbelievably, undeniably, indescribably…
Last night I dreamt I fell in love

The girl with your name
We’ve just fallen in headfirst, caught-out at some family do
Kids pointing and teasing is OK ‘cause they look like you
And we cannot hide what’s true
The girl with your name
When we sneak-in a touch, nothing much, just brushing-up
No word for the static, no word for the rush
We just feel it, can’t say it, and here in this new love we trust.
Last night I dreamt I fell in love

And dreaming’s OK
As I lie awake right next to you
I’ve seen it to dream it
Felt it to feel it
Known it to know it’s true

Last night I dreamt I fell in love (unbelievably, taken hold of me)
Last night I dreamt I fell in love (indescribably, deep inside of me)
Last night I dreamt I fell
Last night I dreamt I fell in
Last night I dreamt I fell in love
Track Name: jezebel
Well I’ve seen how they look at her
And I know what they call her
Jezebel, oh my Jezebel
She looks so fair to me
I’ll make her care for me

She gave me J-E
Never E-Z
Add another E
Never let me B-E-L
She gave me Hell
Jezebel, oh my Jezebel
Jezebel, oh my Jezebel

Now I know what’s good for me
That’s the last time I’ll ever be
A fool for such devilry
Had my fill of Jezebelery
Track Name: pilot
There’s an element of fantasy in what I say
(He’s telling you lies)
Nothing ever seemed impossible until this day
(He can’t make the grade, my friend)
I was the pilot of a helicopter, high in the sky
(He thinks he is God)
There was a cliff with man hanging over the side
(A dangerous cliff, my friend)

Hold tight, ain’t nothing but a tiny tree
Standing between you and eternity

Now the wind was blowing a terrible storm from hell
(He was sore afraid)
All the lights they were flickering on the instrument panel
(He’s losing control, my friend)
I was thinking that the rotor blades might hit the rock
(Crash, bang, big, prang)
That’s when I noticed that the man, he was snagged by his frock
(A delicate shade of pink)

Hold tight, ain’t nothing but a tiny dress
Keep you from the bottom of a deep crevasse

I was lowering the harness from the ratchet pin
(The hero is come)
When the man in the frock looked up and cracked a grin
(He will not be saved, by you)
He let’s go of that tree and like small pink bean
(Come to me, gravity)
He went hurtling down the side of the ravine
(I fear he is doomed this time)

Hold tight, ain’t nothing but an angels breath
Standing between you and certain death

Now it’s a matter of conjecture if pink man survived
(Your best may not be enough)
As I was searching for a meaning in his suicide
(Watch out for the rocks)
I hit the cliff with a bang, the rotors buckled and bent
(You can’t even save yourself)
Then the helicopter followed pink-dress man’s descent
(This is the end)

Don’t cry, everybody is going to die
