Track Name: The Monkey Jamboree
The Monkey Jamboree
The monkey jamboree, it’s there for you and me
It’s swinging in the trees, it’s singing in the breeze
It’s everything you need, so let’s see what you can see . . .
Track Name: Alphabetically Possibly
I catch the reason when the feeling is high
And I still believe in all the weight of this lie
I taste the waters when I’m deep in the blue
And I’m counting senses when there’s pictures to move
Yeah you know, ‘cause this feeling is mine . . .

There’s a lapse of reason but then it’s back to the wall
I’m one step ahead of all your whispers and moans
I’m never tired of waiting for this ceiling to speak
And I’m sent in all directions so this widow will peak again . . .

It’s nothing that you can’t show
Or any way the wind blows
And if you think you don’t know
It’s monkey . . .

One should be going but this drama’s so good
And this whole world window’s just so misunderstood
Now the tracks are bleeding and so the crimson turned red
And it’s one and two and three and four and so . . .




It’s nothing that you can’t show
Or any way the wind blows
And if you think you don’t know
It’s monkey . . .

When I think about it there must be higher love
But then I got misplaced and now it’s just not enough
And did you see me and did you feel me
Shake the ghosts from inside
Just when you think it’s over there’s this train you can ride . . .
Track Name: Complexity
Just another day, lost it in a heartbeat
And each and every has to feel the pain
It’s just another way, you’re like a jigsaw to be broken
A million pieces and they’re all the same
Everything’s overdrive, seems like you can’t decide
Well I can’t help feel that I told you so . . .

I want to drown in your complexity
And find a way to make your enemy
You’re always lifted by that look of surprise
So when it takes you up enjoy the ride
‘cause when you come back down it’ll shake you to the bone
There’s nothing like taking you over and over and . . .

It’s just another face, at one without emotion
And old enough to make your own mistakes
You’re lost without a trace, it’s just too easy to disown you
But who’ll be there when the empire breaks
Earth, fire and water sign, blessed by your own design
Is it holy water with a different taste ?
Everything’s overdrive, and if you can’t decide
When you “monkey, monkey” gonna take your place . . .

I want to drown in your complexity
And find a way to make your enemy
You’re always lifted by that look of surprise
So when it takes you up enjoy the ride
‘cause when you come back down it’ll shake you to the bone
There’s nothing like taking you over and over and . . . down !

I want to drown in your complexity
And find a way to make your enemy
You’re always lifted by that look of surprise
So when it takes you up enjoy the ride
‘cause when you come back down it’ll break you to the bone
There’s nothing like taking you over and over and over and over and . . .
Track Name: Stereochrome
There’s always something that you can’t divide
Like all the pieces that you left behind
It’s not the rhythm that you can’t relate
It’s more the passion and the twist of faith
You’re only happy when you feel the pain
There’s no “sorry” or “I’ll take the blame”
It’s just you see it, you need it, you leave it when you’ve set it in stone . . .

And now it’s almost invisible
That’s why you show me
But now there’s something you need to know
It’s not my defiance and I don’t fear your silence
It’s only if only you’d know . . .

Do you remember how we used to talk
Now you just wouldn’t entertain the thought
There’s no mystery in the mystify
The who, the what, the where, the when and the why
Is it more than you can bend and break ?
It seems like it’s always your turn to take
But did you see it and need it and leave it when you’ve set it in stone . . .

And now it’s almost invisible
That’s why you show me
But now there’s something you need to know
It’s not my defiance and I don’t fear your silence
It’s only if only you’d know . . .

There’s no sense in your ability
There’s no end to your fragility
There’s no feeling when you break the fall
There’s no meaning in the thrill of it all
You need the pressure just to make your point
And then you see it, you need it, you feel it so you leave it
But you feed, you bleed it and you leave it like it’s stereochrome . . .

Come on and show me
Because there’s something I need to know
It’s not my defiance and I don’t fear your silence
It’s only, it’s only, it’s only if only you’d know . . .
Track Name: Magic Hour
Is it what you find, lying in your bed at night
Is it broken inside or just that emotional ride
It’s never over, there’s only tired and an endless in-flight
Holds you when you’re never there, that’s when you realise . . .

That it’s only the moment, it’s only the moment
It’s only the moment that you know
And it’s only the moment, if only the moment
And it’s only the moment that gets you home . . .

Are you chased by the ghosts that you’re leaving behind
Or lost in the rhythm that plays in your mind
I never ever want to feel this cold
It’s just too easy to hold you, is that what they told you is the perfect disguise
So that’s how you hide . . .

When it’s only the moment, it’s only the moment
It’s only the moment that you know
And it’s only the moment, and if only the moment
And if only the moment would get you home . . .


It’s not like you’re there to decide, it’s only the road that I drive
Reasons come, reasons go, there’s always something you can’t let go of
And it’s there in your eyes
This is your magic hour . . .
Track Name: Tomorrow...
And if I had to tell myself
It’s only raw emotion, and just the need to make you second best
And if I had my chance again
There’s only lost and lonely, and only likes to make you second guess
And if I’ve lost my innocence
You’ve not told me, you won’t show me the end . . .

Another word not to mention
Another need for attention
Another fall into pieces
Another heart not so broken
Another closure to open
Tomorrow’s already ended . . .

So I can’t call myself a friend
I’d suffer for your silence when I only want to see you dance again
And I don’t mean to condescend
But ‘m always left to wonder that it should be 3 not 4 just like I said
And if it’s not my inner sense
You’ve not told me, you don’t know me, you won’t show me the end . . .


Another word not to mention
Another need for attention
Another fall into pieces
Another heart not so broken
Another closure to open
Another fault in the system
Another dream not intended
Tomorrow’s already ended . . .

So it’s not just confidence, or the need to make amends
It just keeps on going round
And now there’s all this self regret
Will you forgive but not regret
You’re so far up that you won’t come down . . .

Another word not to mention
Another need for attention
Another fall into pieces
Another heart not so broken
Another closure to open
Tomorrow’s already ended . . .

And it just keeps going round and round and round . . .
Track Name: A Life Shy Of Perfection
I think it’s time to say
That it’s over now, take it all, take this path away
Would it hurt you if you had to prey ?
It’s just I find it hard to try, I’m old enough to leave this world behind
It’s my horizon, I’ve heard you say, I’ve lost my horizon
But you know that I can’t let go
It’s cold enough to let the cold winds blow . . .

I know it’s time to say
Feel it all when you chase the tide, a waterfall that lets your heart decide
I thought I’d never let it slip away
Let you find, let it take your mind, I’m old enough to leave this world behind
It’s my horizon, I’ve let you go, but I’ve lost my horizon
What you need isn’t what you know
Just take your time and leave it drifting slow . . .

Does it matter if you walk away ?
It’s just a flight on a cold dark night
Just take the pieces that were left in spite
It’s just I’m staring at the walls again
The only things that are left behind
The broken pieces of a heartfelt mind
It’s my horizon, I’d let you stay but I’ve lost my horizon
I let you go when the cold winds blow
I try to breath but then the heart said . . . no
Track Name: Chasing The Ghost
Do you dream to make it happen ?
Or do we take the road to somewhere we don’t know ?
It’s more than just a ritual when the difference is the same
Not good enough to hold you but good enough to blame
And did you promise not to promise ?
And does it take your breath to hang on every word ?
Well it’s hard enough for anyone when there’s nothing left to say
But I still can’t find the memory since you took my ghosts away
Your pictures in the frame
‘cause you’re the very reason why the dogs out in the rain. . .

There’s a space between the heavens
That goes deeper than the paths we never go
And there’s a peace of mind to be refined
When there’s magic in the spell
But I won’t tell you the story, it isn’t mine to tell
And everything’s fine, most of the time, everything’s fine
And if I fall in love with anyone, I’d rather it were you
You see I’m old enough and cold enough to let these feelings through
Your pictures out the frame
‘cause you’re the one who went and left the cake out in the rain . . .
I think you know the way to go . . .
When you’ve lost the things that you couldn’t find
And you feel like a number that has just resigned
To break the mould or break the fall, I’ve lost the pieces that made this wall
I’m lost for words when I take this stage
A blinding light on an empty page
To pass the time or pass the blame, the only words that you hear them say
Everything’s over and that’s what you’re told to believe
Hold on, hold on, hold on . . .

Well it got so cruel that it’s not that kind
So I chased the lamb just one more time
And drive the road, there’s hearts to break
It’s a little piece of heaven and a big mistake
It’s not the words that were left unsaid
That’s missing the monkey that’s in my head
It’s the things I do that you don’t know
That stops the heart from beating slow
Everyone’s older, is that what you want to believe ?
Hold on, hold on, hold on . . .

So everything gets broken and nothing stays the same
The closure that was open is just the memory of a name
And the words we left unspoken were in the palm of your hands
You listen but you don’t understand . . .

You can try to hide the purpose and you can try to find the songs
Well you can pass the time to make the reasons rhyme
But is it right to write the wrongs ?
The old man asked the angel but there’s a million things to say
If you believe it all then you can face the fall and then tomorrow is yesterday
And now I’m living it all again, it’s like I’m living it all again
You just had to know to let the feelings go
That’s why I’m living it all again . . .

And in the end, your only friend
Well that’s the only ghost you’ve left behind . . .
