Track Name: Dansette Plays the Blues (extended version)
Feeling a bit like Joe Chip
Not so young and not so hip
Can’t quite nail down the feeling
Layers of the mask start peeling
Its all over for me and you
Time is fragmenting
What am I gonna do?
Its all over
All over for me and you

Born in the Brixton sun
The moon under water runs
Deep in me like Animal Farm
All are equal but some do more harm
Down on Electric Avenue
A Dansette plays the Blues

Deep in me like Animal Farm
The moon under water runs
All are equal but some do more harm
Down on Electric Avenue
A Dansette plays, plays the Blues

I can almost touch this girl
She cannot hear me
I am from another time
I scream my warning
And try to draw the line

In the other worldly place
I draw lines in the dust with my mind
I leave the notes that I hope she will find
I leave the notes
That I hope she will find
Look before its too late
Pause for a second
Won’t you wait
I said, “Pause for a second, wait”
Track Name: Seen The Roses
Have you seen the roses
Now you are dead
Have you the seen the roses
Time to see them when you’re dead
Seen the roses in my head
I’ve got an irregular head
That’s what I said
Have you seen the roses in my head?
I can’t stop thinking of a love so true
You made a impression on me
I drew a picture of you
Now I can’t stop thinking
Of a love that's true.

I am easy to talk about
I’ve got a very irregular head
Have you seen the roses
Seen the roses when your’e dead

I could write a letter
There’s a whole lot of colours
In my head
Have you seen roses?

You made a impression on me
I drew a picture of you
Now I can’t stop thinking
Of a love that's true.

Can you help me with my life
I am looking for someone to be my wife
Can you help me with my mind
I am going crazy, I am going blind
Track Name: eLIXIR
My girl friend after sunrise
Just dry skin and bone
I shouldn't have stayed alive
Should have spent the night alone
You may have your own opinion
Time changes me but can I change time?
Maybe the chance has gone
Looking for a reason I can't find
Another stale cigarette 
Another message I can't forget
I gravitate between euphoria and insanity
Don't waste the cUBIK
I make this explicit
One life, one chance, one shot
Or a half life wasteland that time forgot

The most powerful eLIXIR
Efficacious in every case
Increases your desire
Holds your hair place
Tunes out your worries
Calms your fears
Lifts up your Mojo
Makes black dogs disappear
Most advanced product of its kind
Stops reality
Makes you time blind
May contain traces of amphetamine
To mess with your mind
Track Name: Wake UP to uBIK _ Mick the money man
I don’t know how they lost him
But they lost him
An entirely new and different taste treat
That’s waking up the world
Wake up to uBIK and be wild
Wild new uBIK salad dressing
That’s waking up the world
Wake up to uBIK
And be wild

I,m on top of the world with you
Can this be true,
If I could read your mind
What would I understand
What would I find

Mick, Mick the money man
Slaves of lunar understand
Some say he's insane
A perfect lunatic
Yet there is money in his madness
Other Worldly Mick

Silent and impressive
All electric hired limousine
It's electrifying and terrifying
The energy you're supplying
If I could read your mind
Would I understand what I would find
You can change the future
I cannot remember the past
Within revolutions of the spheres
Merely seconds or maybe years
The truth will come to us at last
I will try to make each brick fit,
Though, It's scope is beyond my wit
Track Name: Shadows
Look into shadows and what do you see
See all those pictures coming right back at me.

This glimpse behind the veil
Into insignificance all will pale
Slaves forever in a dark night
Relentless toil is our plight
This cannot be 
Our future or history
If there is not hope
If there is not love
How could we ever cope
With destiny scattered from above
Just a few words, ups a daisy
Nice and slow
There we go 
Happy Slapper if you need to know
You are wanted in Zurich for stealing futures
Poscred on dollars for front end loaders
Swindlers and bulldozers
Aliases as long as your arm
Big man with little charm
On Lunar otherwise known as Mick
Metal Mick a raving lunatic
Selling worthless mining leases
Hey Man cut the expletives
Are you never ashamed
Is it that easy to off load the blame
