Track Name: Dr Galapagos & I
Picture me and Dr Galapagos sitting by the edge of the bay,
We agree to let "bygones" be "bygones", doesn't mean we won't fight every day,
He owns every inch of these islands, and sometimes he's not too proud to say,
I tell him I just work here, but neither of us has enough of anything to pay,
We're in the same boat

That old rusty postbox
Only God knows how long it's stood
Seems emptier every day

*We've been selling our perspectives, but lately I can't even give mine away*
Sometimes, when we pause at our reflections, I wonder if he'll ask me to stay
*See, for enemies in our condition we've so much in common, why would we throw it all away?*
While the object of our affections sinks further and further beneath the waves

Ah, that old rusty postbox,
Though you'd think it never could,
Seems emptier every day

Still no answer
To my letter
Should I let her
Fade...
... away?

*
So you say you're feeling under the weather
Well, we're all under the sky
You're already feeling Winter in September
Don't let life pass you by
*

Maybe they just don't deliver
This far away
Maybe they don't deliver
Here at the end of the world

Here at The End Of The World (I've travelled so far)
Here at The End Of The World
Here at The End Of The World
Here at The End...

Still no answer
To my letter
Should I let her
Fade..?
Still no answer
To my letter
Should I let her
Fade..?

Maybe they just don't deliver
Here at The End Of The World

So you say you're feeling under the weather
Don't let life pass you by
Track Name: Lost In Translation
I have visions sometimes
Of less crowded skies
Where the sun I worship
Doesn't need a disguise
It just shines on
Endlessly

I have visions sometimes
Of less crowded skies
Where the sun I worship
Doesn't need a disguise
Where the rolling hills
Are moving still
Where the ripples of the waves
Show reflections of our better selves
Our better selves

I have visions sometimes
Oh, but can I trust my eyes?
When endlessly
They lie?

I have reasons sometimes
But can I trust my mind?
When endlessly
It hides?

I have feelings sometimes
But can I trust my heart?
When endlessly
It beats...
It beats me down?

I have tears, I have fears
I have tears, oh and an ocean to fill
Endlessly I...
Endlessly I...

D'you have visions sometimes?
D'you have visions sometimes?
D'you have visions sometimes?
D'you have visions sometimes?

Oh, endlessly.
Endlessly
Track Name: Maybe God Just Did Her Best With The Cards She Was Dealt (And We Should All Drink Much More Wine)
Sometimes you just sit and think
Sometimes you just sit
Sometimes you just sit and drink
and you ask yourself
"What Am I doing?
"Where Am I going?
"What does it all even mean?
"Where The Hell am I NOW?

IS IT TRUE WHAT GOES ROUND, ALWAYS COMES AROUND?
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
WHY DO I ALWAYS HEAR BETTER WHEN THERE'S NO SOUND?

Maybe we should...
Maybe if we could...
Maybe it's all been just a little
Misunderstood
Maybe she just did her best with the cards she was dealt
She just did her best with the cards she was dealt
Just did her best with the cards she was dealt
Did her best with the cards she was dealt

I'VE HEARD IT SAID WE'VE BEEN CURSED SINCE BIRTH
BUT MAYBE IT'S THE REVERSE AND WE'RE A GIFT FROM THE EARTH

This human tragedy
Maybe that's the beauty of it

So don't waste your time
Track Name: And So...
It was easy to sow
We sowed it easily
It was easy to show
We showed it easily

We should have known
We should have known
Better...
Better next time

It was easy to believe
We believed it easily
It was easy to dream
We dreamed it easily

We should have grown
We should have grown
Better...
Better next time

It was easy to break
It was easy to break
So we broke it easily
It was easy to fake
It was easy to fake
So we faked it easily

We should have made it home
We should have made it home
Better...
Better next time

But it was so hard
It was so hard
It was so hard
It was so hard

We broke it easily

Better next time

But it was so hard
It was so hard
It was so hard
It was so hard


We broke it easily
Track Name: Where Are They Now?
Lost in TV
'Cos they used to believe in it
Fostered their homes
Out of Ivory and gold
(they) Refused to grow old,
But for whiskey and blueberry
Held on to anything they found and barely made it out alive

But where are they now?
And how much did they pay?

Where are they now?
I'm freezing and hopeless
And...
Is it really such a surprise?
How much did they pay?
I'm subtle and humble now
I'm falling for all of your wiles

Mmmmm...

Lost in TV

Where are they now?

... and how much did they pay?
