Track Name: Not Half / No End
Up on the hill, it's so easy there
In a way that it's not so easy anyplace else
Up on the hill
You can look but you won't see me there
I'm letting it burn,
I'm letting it burn on the plain

Just like the first cigarette of the day
Just like the first cigarette of the day
Just like the first cigarette of the day
I'm letting it burn on the plain

Towards:

Not half / no end, not half / no end

Up on the hill, I can't speak the language anymore
And there are names and faces that I can't recall
Lost in a fog and I can't see anything at all
Why don't you paint me a picture,
I'll hang it on the wall

Between the road and the wall there's a ditch
Between the road and the wall there's a ditch
Between the road and the wall there's a ditch
Look around you might see me there

But it's:

Not half / no end, not half / no end
Track Name: I Know I've Got A Lot To Learn
Lately I find I can get by on so little
I'm trying to do it good, like you say:
"Get out and see some people"
And sometimes that good, sometimes that works
But even when it does, I still know

I know I've got a lot to learn

Something was borrowed and never returned
Something was offered but it was never served
And I heard what you said, but I didn't know what it meant
When you said it to me
You said:
"A gift is not a gift if its never given away."

I know I've got a lot to learn
Track Name: (Theme For A) Blue Rider
I'm a blue rider now

I want to ride the blue blue range

I bleed all alone for you
On the plain, on the plain

I bleed all alone for you
On the plain, on the plain

I'm a blue rider now
Track Name: Natural Way
Everything came true
Everything came true
Everything came true in it's natural way.

What else is there to do?
What else is there to do?
What else is there to do but go outside and walk around.

I can't keep doing the same things
I can't keep doing the same things
I can't keep doing the same things that I used to do.
Track Name: Path Of Desire
Let it be known, let it be known:
A river that flows against itself is unfree

Let it be known, let it be known:
What every crimes requires is a decent getaway

So I jumped the fence and I clipped the wires
I took a ride,
I made a deal to leave it all behind

Running free, running wild
I followed the path,
The Path of Desire

Let it be known, let it be known,
Further than I could throw a stone
Further than the shore
Further than I've ever known

Fast and slow, come and go with me
Black and blue, I want to linger in you longer

But do you know what that's like?
To step into that fire?
And follow the path,
The Path of Desire

I jumped the fence, I clipped the wire
I followed the path
The Path Of Desire
Track Name: I Want To Have A Good Time
I want to have a good time
Yes I'm sure
I want to have a good time
But I don't know what a good time is anymore

I want to have a good time
I don't want to just hang around
I want to have a good time and I don't care if its right or wrong

In the blue light of the morning,
In the blue light of the morning,
Although I couldn't see it at the time
Although I couldn't see it at the time
I was living in a good time
I was having a good time

And I want to have a good time
Track Name: Slow Decay
Why am I always running out of what I need?
Of what I need?
Of what I need?

Why must plenty be followed by austerity?
So much less, so much less

I'm a camera that's fixed to measure
The signs of slow decay
Empty centre, nothing's left
Whatever's been earned has already been spent
Sell another pound of your own flesh
The only way to pay the debt

Everybody else is where they already are
Far away, far away

And Everybody else sings someone else's song
Sing along, sing along

I'm leaning on the windowsill,
I'm staring at the day
Without a word to say
I'm a medication
I'm penicillin
I'm coca-cola, cortisone or Thorazine

I'm the candle, I'm the flame
That burns in the strangest way:
Without a wick,
Without a match
Burning out on the plain
