Non-LP Lyrics


Tomorrow Ends Today

I have watched the world go past
But forever never lasts
So I must change, so I must change
I could sit all day and dream
But I know that it would mean
So much to miss, so much to miss

La la la la la la la

I look at you and then I understand
The way the world is
Or should I say
The way it should be

As tomorrow ends today
In a funny kind of way
My head is spinning with you

As I look into your eyes
Theres so much that they imply
Theres so much more, theres so much more
Ive a thousand things to do
Every one of them to you
I surely will, I surely will

I look at you and then I understand
The way the world is
Or should I say
The way it should be

As tomorrow ends today
In a funny kind of way
My head is spinning with you

Crystal Crescent

I endeavour to struggle at the
I remember another day and realise what love means
I look at myself again how I can't stop the
.....I can't tell you

[Chorus]
I guess I'm following, I'm following,
I'm following my heart
Oh yes I'm following, I'm following, I'm following
My heart to what I've found
That's where souls lie in ... paradise?

I'm enchanted with ... but will it be relinquished
I'm entranced with .... your kiss
I look at my world again how I now realise what
That only love will set you free
Here I go again

Repeat chorus

Velocity Girl

Here she comes again
With vodka in her veins
Peen playing with a spike
She couldn't get it right

Splendour in silver dress
Velocity possessed
The world was hers again
It fell apart again

I don't need anyone to hurt me
No, not anyone at all
`Cause my so-called friends have left me
And I don't care at all

Leave me alone
Leave me alone
Leave me alone

Split Wide Open

I know I hurt you
I know I'm cruel
I know you're hung on me
So I cut your heart
And spit it at you

You cry because I abuse you
One day I know I'll lose
You'll claw out my eyes
And leave me screaming

I've got you split wide open over me
I've got you split wide open over me
I've got you split wide open over me
Oh yeah

If I could tell you
Just how I feel
You wouldn't walk away
With a stick in my throat ...
I choke, I scream
I cut and I can't say
And that I really care about you
I just scream and shout
And curse you

All messed up I've slashed
I've cut I've scared you
Split wide open over me
Oh yeah

You got nowhere to hide
I bury you alive
I hurt you
I hurt you
I love you down inside

I've got you split wide open over me
I've got you split wide open over me

Big Man and The Scream EP

Full Strength Fortified Dub

In every hick town in Caledonia
Across this pseudo nation
You can see the most fucked up scum
that was shat into creation
Where a blue McKewan's lager top equals
no imagination
You're hunbelievable
You're hunbelievable

The mystery of Scottish sport
Is why we hate the English so.
I love the English very much
As long as they don't fuckin beat us
in the European nations cup
"You ain't gonna win no more"

Sittin' and waiting for the inevitable shot out
that never comes
Sittin and waiting for the inevitable shot out
that never fuckin comes.

Electric Soup Dub

In every hick town in Caledonia
Across this pseudo nation
You can see the most fucked up scum
that was shat into creation
Where a blue McKewan's lager top equals
no imagination

You're hunbelievable
You're hunbelievable

What do they do with all the confiscated bevy,
The polis?
Buckets and bags of it?
Give it to the jakies? Nah.
Drink it themselves? Mibbe.
Give it back to the retailers
so they can sell it all back to us over again
The cunts (echo)
You're hunbelievable
You're hunbelievable

The mystery of Scottish sport
Is why we hate the English so.
I love the English very much
As long as they don't fuckin beat us
in the European nations cup
You're hunbelievable
You're hunbelievable

Sitting outside Wembley in '79,
Jock punks in London, massive carry out
Talking to a guy in an ice cream van
So drunk for weeks and we're goin
Way past the point of wantin tickets.
It would be horrendous now if someone
was to hand you a fuckin ticket

You'd have to leave all the bevy
outside the grounds by the polis dump bins
No fuckin way!
Ten minutes into the fuckin game
We'd be climbing up the walls to get out.
Fuc-kin hell.
Remember the banner
"Alcoholism beats communism",
Well it beats the fuck out of football as well.

Think you're a success
Your psyche's a mess
Your economy is in distress

Sittin and waiting for the inevitable shot out
that never comes
Sittin and waiting for the inevitable shot out
that never fuckin comes.

A Jake Supreme

In Scotland we flatter the English
By giving victories over them a significance
They don't fuckin merit.
If it was such a big deal to defeat the English
Other countries wouldnae get so fuckin bored doin it.

In every hick town in Caledonia
Across this pseudo nation
You can see the most fucked up scum

Your psyche's a mess
Your economy is in distress

You're gonna cry, cry, cry

You have the right not to be killed
Murder is a crime
Unless it is done by a policeman

Know your rights, know your rights
Know your rights, know your rights
Know your rights, know your rights

You have the right to party
Provided you don't mind some
Investigation, humiliation

As long as you ain't dumb enough to try it

These are your rights

Know your rights (repeat to end)

Star EP

Jesus

In a world full of strangers
I've been looking for a friend
I see people get things even
I see loneliness and pain
I've been dying, I've been crying
Lord you know I've been trying
But it's all wrong

[Chorus]
Jesus, come back here
Jesus, come back here
Jesus, come back here
Jesus, come back here

My head is strange and messy
My spirit's cold and dark
I feel just like an outlaw
I've been burning out my star
I've been dying, I've been crying
Lord you know I've been trying
And it's all wrong

Chorus

How Does It Feel To Belong

I'm fading into black
I'm slipping through the cracks in me
My head is full of holes
My thoughts are scattered on the breeze

My life is full of dirt
It tastes just like a curse on me
You cut me to the bone
I got bad love I got dead dreams

Your strange disease messing with my head
You'll be the death of me
You're the living end
I'm filthy and diseased
'Cause like I die, I live in slow motion
I'm scattered on the breeze
The sickly people's heads cracked open

Your strange disease messing with my head
You'll be the death of me
You're the living end

How does it feel to belong (6x)

Accelerator EP

When the Kingdom comes

The mood sinks after sun
The night time kills the day
Women got the power
Living free, you gotta pay

Yeah, choose good or evil baby
Catch us and i'll burn away

You better run, run, run
You better run, run, run
You better run, run, run
When the kingdom comes

Some good seeds
With bad blood bleed
But that's the way it goes
My head is a place
Where chaos reigns
I find peace in soul

The world is sick
People don't mix now
Cans replace the land

You better run, run, run
You better run, run, run
You better run, run, run
When the kingdom comes

Time after time
You're throwing pearls at swine
You burn a little piece of your soul
But to many people
Don't quit the needle
When a kid comes to know
Alright

The mood sinks after sun
The night time kills the day
Women got the power
Living free you've gotta pay

You better run, run, run
You better run, run, run
You better run, run, run
When the kingdom comes

Watch out now

You better run, run, run
You better run, run, run
You better run, run, run
When the kingdom comes

Here it comes now

(Marriot/Lane)

When people ask me what love's all about
There's one thing I can say
Some people believe just what I'm putting down
Understand your troubles away

[Chorus]
You got to do this thing we're feeling
You got to know just what I'm meaning
You gotta believe just what I'm handing
Understanding, understanding

Yeah, alright alright
Hey hey
You see I love this life I lead
And I wanna love it with you
But people you don't understand
Just what I'm putting down
There's no more I can do

Chorus

Just don't lose it
Come on children, I wanna hear you one more time

You can talk to me baby
Tell me what's on your mind
With a little understanding

Rays of the Rising Sun - Denise Johnson

Out of darkness came forth a blinding light
Bizzing(?) in the sky like a burning flame
We got on our knees, we began to pray

[Chorus]
We worship you
We pray to you
Oh we praise you
Look into the rays of the rising sun
Here they come, one by one
Look into the rays of the rising sun
Here they come, one by one
Look into the rays
The rays
Salvation has come
We have found the one we can trust upon (?)
Bringing peace and love (?)
That caresses me, sets my spirit free
