Track Name: What Do You Do For Encores?
Night falls down
On a station town
And the truth has been delayed
Here I go
Following dead stars the wrong way home
Space junk sky
Life is a series of long goodbyes

Chorus

Tell me that it's hopeless
Say you couldn't care less
Don't say that it's over
Trying hard to hold on
Guessing where I went wrong
What do you do for encores?

World's apart
My foolish heart
Won't believe what people say
And that's just you
Singing a sad song to get you through
And that's just me
Playing a love song in the wrong key

Repeat Chorus
Track Name: Just Like An Aeroplane
Tell that joke again
Think I'll go insane
You're so beautiful
But you're not in my tree
Just like an aeroplane
You're up and down again
But where you're going to
I guess you just couldn't know
Say what you mean-everything is nothing without you
Should I retreat?
When it's all wrapped up in circles for me

Chorus

Was there ever a way the starts shone without you?
Was there ever a day that i could forget you?

Just like an aeroplane
You're up and down again
Too high to feel the pain
And you're not in my tree
You fall apart in rain
You wish the world away
Hey I'm so dutiful
Can't find the words to explain

Say what you mean everything is nothing without you
Should I retreat?
When it's all wrapped up in circles for me

Repeat Chorus

You let me know that I'm on a different planet to you
You yeah I know
Cos you let me know I'm on a different planet
Yeah I know-I'm on a different planet to you


(Words & Music Simon Parker)
Track Name: There Is Nowhere Left To Go But Down
Hey now, there is nowhere left to go but down yeah
But I am always looking for the stars
A place for broken hearts
And you can catch me on a perfect day break
Where sunshine burns the sky and makes the world ache
I am always searching for a clue
Where words will fit the tune

Life was, just something else to waste 'til it got too late
Now every day's the last i fall apart wake up at the start
And wonder if I'm out of time
It's midnight and there is nowhere left to go but down yeah
You will always be there on my mind
Another world to find

(Words & Music Simon Parker)
Track Name: Seahorses
Breathing fire again
Emergency reported too late
The nights are drawing in
For once it's not the boy who's to blame
But this is not the time
To tell me that you've got to go
So I close my eyes and wait
The surface of the world slips away

Chorus

All this talking I heard through paper walls
All the times when I wait for you to call
But we both know it's time for us to go
To sea again

Breathing fire and flame
Trying to keep up with the game
Yeah that joke is wearing thin
The one where I just sit here and wait
But this is not the end
I've come to far to depend
On maybe maybe not's
Picking up those hints that you drop

Repeat Chorus

All your plans, they don't improve me at all


(Words & Music Simon Parker)
Track Name: Fireboy
A part of you wants to be be free
That part of you is leaving me
I never knew just how I'd feel
But now I burn for you when I dream

Chorus

Ooooh, always on fire
Ooooh, always desire

You're moving on you shine like a star
I've always been so mild at heart
You were the flame to light up my life
But now i burn come rain or shine

Repeat Chorus

Tear away my self defence
I don't believe in co-incidence
But I feel like I am burning when I'm with you, when I'm with you

I never knew just what to say
Now this Fireboy, is bringing away

I never knew...


(Words & Music Simon Parker)
Track Name: Silver Key
If you're talking to yourself
Wish that you were someone else
That's how i feel today

If your lucks out with the tide
And you've got no place to hide
Don't throw away the silver key

If you're talking to yourself...

(Words & Music Simon Parker)
Track Name: Island
Wake with the sun in my eyes
Late once again, no surprise
You say i disappear until the coast is clear
On an island

Ran from the race rest assured
Made my escape washed ashore
So I disappeared until the coast was clear
I'm an island

Chorus

I used to think that the world was listening to me
And as it span it revolved around me, and my dreams
But now I'm not so sure

Wake with the sun in my eyes
Planned my escape my demise
And it's just like solitaire cos no one else is there
On an island

Repeat Chorus

You can't remain an island
You cannot face the future on your own...on your own

You're on your own


(Words & Music Simon Parker)
Track Name: Banana Skins
I used to think that when you smiled
I got high, but I cried and cried
Cos you could never save my life

i used to think that banana skins could get me high
So I tried and tried
But they would never change my life
No they could never change my life

I used to think I was being tailed
When i got high i wondered why
Shadows used to rule my life

But now i find I don't think so much
I'm out of touch with all that stuff
Knowing I could never win
I'm giving up and giving in

I used to think that when you smiled I got high
But i cried and cried cos you could never save my life

And now i find i don't think so much
I'm out of touch with all that stuff
Knowing i could never win
i'm slipping on banana skins


(Words & Music Simon Parker)
Track Name: King Of The Sun
There's a part of me that always wants to talk on the phone
But there's a side to me that really wants to be left alone

Lost in a maze fade away...

There's a memory of summer's hiding out with my friends
But now there's mystery cos no one told us friendships could end

All through this lifetime
Year after year
Lost in a maze fade away

Chorus

When you're King of the sun
You share the world with no one
And if I try will I make it next time?
Can I be King of the sun?

Repeat Chorus


(Words & Music Simon Parker)
Track Name: The Haunted Dancefloor
It's true what they say
Time will slip away
And you cant bring it back
It's always there in your mind

Chorus

You can go where you want
But you can never go back
And old hopes they don't die
They just end up living on their own

You live the next thing
Hold on to your dream
'Til one day it's all gone
Wake up it;s time for you to move

You can go where you want
But you can never go back
And old Punks they don't die
They just end up dancing on their own

You can go where you want...


(Words & Music Simon Parker)
