Track Name: The Flat Earth Society
It's abundantly clear, the world you're on,
It's spinning to fast, it's crazy,
And you know that I'm here,
But you're so gone,
Let's put our spacesuits on and...

We've got nothing to lose,
We've got nothing to prove,
Come have a cup tea and join the Flat Earth Society,

So let's jump off the world, and let it go,
Spinning away in space and land,
Where we will be free,
Just gravity,
To keep us just you and me and...

We've got nothing to lose,
We've got nothing to prove,
Let's have a cup of tea and join the Flat Earth Society,

We need another planet,
With just so much less panic,
Come down and let's just be,
With the Flat Earth Society,

Once you land on the ground,
You won't be found,
Nothing to hold you down and,
There are no hills to climb,
No obstacles,
No rat race to run around and...

We've got nothing to lose,
We've got nothing to prove,
Come have a cup of tea and join the Flat Earth Society...
Track Name: Yes the Spook She Loves You
Here it comes, the end of time,
Hear the bells begin to chime,
And yet, she loves you,
Yes the spook, she loves you,

Here it comes, the end of time,
Spinning out, you don't feel fine,
And yet, she loves you,
Yes the spook, she loves you,
Track Name: Happiness Comes in Waves
Happiness comes in waves,
It blows around the place,
Like waves...upon the shoreline,

Happiness comes in waves,
And when it does it saves,
Like waves...shivering down your spine,

Happiness comes in waves,
And settles on your face,
Love those waves...upon your face now,
Track Name: Pulling Out Hairs
I am the one you will see in the corner, tonight love, yes love,
Disconnected and flailing like wheat in a gale,
I am the one you will see at the back of the queue love, yes love,
Pulling out hairs and consistently chasing my tail,

I am the one you will see window shopping, tonight love, yes love,
One penny short, oh I'll never afford this sale,
I am the one you will see who is climbing the walls love, yes love,
Can't get a grip so I'll slip and I constantly fail,

I am the one you will see in the rain with no coat love, yes love,
The cats and the dogs will get me and I'm wet as a whale,

Can you see me? Can you see?
Can you see me? Can you see?
Track Name: September
When sweet comes the morning,
And your head is feeling low,
I will come a calling,
And I'll never let it go,

Like a rose escapes the thorns, I'll bring you home,

The rains come in September,
The summer is long gone,
We wait now for November,
It's cold the nights are long,

Like a rose escapes the thorns, I'll bring you home,

I've seen your light,
It's shining bright,
Open your window now and,
Banish the night,

The dust it floats in shadows,
Forget me nots in bloom,
Just listen when the wind blows,
I'll be there oh so soon,

Like a rose escapes the thorns, I'll bring you home,
Track Name: The Butterfly
Silence comes when you're alone,
And no-one can see in your eyes,
The love you feel is curled up inside,
Like autumn it waits for the rose,

And no-one can tell you what's wrong,
And no-one can tell you what's right,

Your hopes seem dashed, when you're alone,
September its wicked wind blows,
The butterfly waited so long,
Like autumn it waits for the rose,

And no-one can tell you what's wrong,
And no-one can tell you what's right,
Track Name: I'm Floating (the Beach Hut song)
Nothing here, nothing there,
Look around, do I care?
I'm floating, I'm floating,

There is sky, there is sand,
Hold my fingers, hold my hand,
I'm floating, I'm floating,

See the red, see the blue,
Come alive, I'm with you,
I'm floating, I'm floating,
Track Name: September Two
One half penny is all I can afford,
On a foggy morning we all end up bored like you,
In September too,

Like a crazy busker singing all of the blues,
We can't be funny, there's just too much to lose like you,
In September too,

I'm just here I'm waiting,
(Just like you)
I am hesitating,
(Just like you)
I am here, I'm waiting to see you be,

Oh I will remember this September and you,
Oh we can escape and then we won't be blue like you,
In September too

September too,
September too,
Track Name: Overheard Conversation
How fast exactly does a bullet go?
Does a bullet go?
Daddy tell me,

And so, I'll tell you what I don't know,
That's how to hold the whole world in my hand,

I'm always looking for the bright thing,
Yes the bright thing,
In your face,

And so, I'll tell you what I don't know,
That's how to hold the whole world in my hand,

How fast exactly does a bullet go?
Does a bullet go?
Well I don't know,

And so, I'll tell you what I don't know,
That's how to hold the whole world in my hand,

It's so fast I cannot see it with my eyes...
It's so fast I cannot see it with my eyes...
Track Name: My Mother's Eyes
Once there was a place,
A strange old face,
A strange old man,

I saw my mother's eyes,
She looked surprised,
Maybe I am,
That strange old man,
That was once young,
That was once young,

But now there is a place,
This same old face,

We are still young,
We are still young,

It's in your smile,
It's in your smile,

We are still young,
We are still young,
