Track Name: See Me Bee
Floating down the river,
No life jacket to hold me,
Floating all the way to the sea,

See me bee, oh yeah,

Flying on a rocket,
No atmosphere to stop it,
There’s nothing in the way I can see,

See me bee, oh yeah,

Counting all the windows,
And walking all the pavements,
And seeing all the things I can see,

See me bee, oh yeah,
Track Name: Lucky Charms
It rained the day my mother died,
I took the washing off the line,
Just like every other time before,

And when I held her in my arms,
I thought of all those lucky charms,
And all the funny things that went before,

And ooh, how she sighed,
And ooh, some of us cried,

It rained the day my mother died,
I heard my brother sat and cried,
I’ve never seen him cry like that before,

And when I held her hand in mine,
I thought of all that fleeting time,
And wondrous things that never rhymed before,

And ooh, how she sighed,
And ooh, some of us cried,
Track Name: Bandoneon
And I’m just like a city by the sea,
With all the dreaming spires,
I’m changing constantly,

And I’m just like a railway in the sky,
With all its twisting curves,
I’ll never say goodbye,

So never go down to the sea without me,
Never say never, I’m glad you found me,
And when you collapse in a heap around me,
Here we are,

And I’m just like a piano in the sun,
With all those magic chords,
Just like a rabbit on the run,

So never go down to the sea without me,
Never say never, I’m glad you found me,
And when you collapse in a heap around me,
Here we are,
Track Name: Which Way the Wind Will Blow
There’s heaven in this goldfish bowl,
And dirty fingerprints they stain my soul,
Your stars are in a big black hole,
So let’s run our love up this flagpole, yeah, yeah,

Who knows how the wind will blow?

There’s places in my heart that burn,
And I wonder if I’ll ever learn?
There’s mysteries that you can’t discern,
So let’s give ourselves this one good turn, yeah, yeah,

Who knows how the wind will blow?

There’s things to see in this snow globe,
Your hand is there for me to hold,
We hug, we kiss and the disrobe,
Looks like our love has got some hope, yeah, yeah,

Who know how the wind will blow?

Let us see which way the wind will blow...
Track Name: There is no Planet B
Why can’t they see,
There’s no Planet B,
Right now?

No room will be,
Empty you see,
If your mind is full,

So take me to the world my lover,
So can it be we can discover,
So let it be we can recover,
Small things,

Why can’t they see,
There’s no Planet B,
Right now?

No room will be,
Empty you see,
If your mind is full,

So take me to the world my lover,
So can it be we can discover,
So let it be we can recover,
Small things,

Small things, small things,
Right now...
Track Name: The Ever Recurring Dis-Ease of Forgetfulness
Some time ago the world you know,
The world you know was falling on its knees,

Oh please,

Now some will say that it’s okay,
We’ve learnt so much, so much from history,

Oh please,

There’s generational amnesia,
There’s generational amnesia,

Some need to see the urgency,
The urgency we feel in our dis-ease,

Oh please,

Some of us don’t forget...
Track Name: Dirty World
And this is where my words will overflow,
I got nothing left to show, for my time,

And this is where my colours will all run,
And I will be undone,
It’s a sign,

It’s a sign of the dirty world we’re in,

And this is when your flags are on your sleeve,
And there’s nothing to retrieve,
When you’re blind,

And this is when your hands are always tied,
And there’s nothing left to hide,
It’s a sign,

It’s a sign of the dirty world we’re in,

I hope we can fix it all somehow, somehow,

And this is where the cables they will break,
A bad feeling I can’t shake,
In my mind,

And this is where we pull together now,
Try to fix it all somehow,
It’s a sign,

It’s a sign of the dirty world we’re in,
Track Name: Atomnesia Opus
We always do forget,
All those smallest of little things,
Atomnesia comes to call,
And we forget to live like kings,

I’ve seen it in all the places,
I’ve seen it in all the faces,
I’ve seen the world,
Seen it spinning round and round,

Blow a kiss to someone crazy,
Have a think and then just maybe,
Maybe we won’t forget,
The smallest of things,

We always do forget,
To take the littlest of time,
To tell all the ones we love,
We hope they are just fine,

I’ve seen it in all the places,
I’ve seen it in all the faces,
I’ve seen the world,
Seen it spinning round and round,

Blow a kiss to someone crazy,
Have a think and then just maybe,
Maybe we won’t forget,
The smallest of things,
Track Name: The Atom School
What did we learn from the atom school?
Don’t split the atom...
