School Girl Dreams of Nirvana

School girl dreams of nirvana
Minor player major drama
Respect and care sympathia
All living things know pain and fear

Dharma action or deed
Blowing out the fire of greed
The best things in life are free
Nirvana is an energy

Enlightenment sentient being
Messages appear on the screen
Nirvana the state of being free
Union with the supreme yeah

School girl dreams of nirvana
Make believe

Different gender different class
I saw you thru the looking glass
Tinman the lion and the scarecrow
Dorothy’s a long way from home

Endless corridors CCTV
Declare a state of emergency
Angry faces dirty looks
Examination tenterhooks

Razorwire security
Blowing out the blaze of apathy
Impish grin heaven can wait
Blowing out the candle of hate

The golden rule
The purpose of school
We do as you say
Not what you do

School girl dreams of nirvana
Make believe

 

15

I’ll meet you on Saturday
I’ll see you on Saturday

15 went to bed at dawn
Sat in the dark too long
Body piercing went wrong
Didn’t ask to be born

15 slam the bedroom door
Families at war
Play the music loud
To shut out the row

When I was 15
Forever 15
One world one vision one dream
I heard the cry of freedom
When I was 15

Forever 15
Floating out on mainstream
I heard the cry of freedom

I’ll meet you on Saturday
I’ll see you on Saturday

15 want the world to see
Cannot wait to break free
Moving on to forget
Old enough to regret

15 please don’t stand in my way
I’m living for today
All the world is a stage
I’m just acting my age

When I was 15
Forever 15
One world one vision one dream
I heard the cry of freedom
When I was 15

Just like a bird in a cage
I flew into a rage
Now I’m coming of age

Imminent and strange
Aware that great change
Was only moments away

 

A64 Red Bus Café

Start those engines
No one lives forever
Nothings gonna last
We know where we’re going
And we gotta there fast

Road rage hold on tight
Faster than the speed of light
An oasis half way to paradise
2, 3, 4

Older gents in sandals and socks
Festival fans they are ready to rock
Blind watchmaker taking stock
Step inside and beat the clock

Park and ride working up an appetite
Take a fork a spoon and a knife
Come and taste all the delights

A64 Red Bus Café

All day breakfasts one menu
Patiently they wait for you
Moving fast in the queue
Their only desire is serving you

The council tried to close it down
They said it spoiled the look of town

Cheesy not greasy

Scooter clubs rugby teams
Motorbikes and limousines
Football fans chasing dreams
Nothing is as it seems

Families on their way to the coast
Scrambled eggs and beans on toast
Hope you try before I get old
Choose the things that you like the most

No need to rush or push
All this fuss for a double decker bus
With marmalade wheels

A64 Red Bus Café

 

Sticky Black Tarmac

You’ve heard it all before
But every time it’s new
The story of a dreamer
In the last chance saloon

Siege of Ennis Shamrock club
Dig for pearls in the mud
Bow your head to the great and good

Sticky black tarmac
New beginnings make me happy

Moving on from town to town
A falling tree makes no sound
Meet that girl settle down
A band of gold she wraps around

And what’s it all for
This search for great truth
You won’t find the answers
On the tomb of doomed youth
What does it mean to know something
If you don’t know what to do

Hold her hand, cut the cake
Cos it took so long to bake
Her heart is yours to break
Don’t you make that mistake

Brand new suit for your wedding day
Fix that tie and don’t be late
Don’t you let her slip away

Tie the knot share a name
Chase the sun and play the game
Set out to make a nation great again

New beginnings make me happy

Trouble and strife
Husband and wife
Partners for life
May you both be filled with light

Filled with light

 

I Will Love You

I will love you until the end of time
It shall not wither on the vine
Tears of laughter tears of pain
Loving memories cried again

Thank you for all that you gave
Thank you for all that you shared
Sacrifices you made
Loves greatest gift never fades

I will love you until the end of time
It shall not wither on the vine
Tears of laughter tears of pain
Loving memories cried again

Thank you for all your advice
Thank you for the look in your eyes
Deaths dark veil heart of life
Hope never rolls on a dice

I will love you
Till the day I die

I will love you
Till the oceans run dry

I will love you
Money can’t buy

I will love you
What is already mine

 

Monica

Listens to the radio and her feet just can’t keep still

Monica qu’est que c’est
From all she knew she ran away
Where do you want to go today

Racing through the matinee
Kissed the boy then hide away
Happiness is lazy

Monica economy
Only work sets you free
In what language do you dream

Monica Jimmy Choo
Lonely catwalk avenues
Productivity improves
Ugly Betty’s revenues

Monica so far from home
Monica from an EU zone
Monica works on her own

Monica and Montague live on Clifton Avenue
Importing birthday suits tailor made for you

Monica minimum wage
All the world is a stage
Pushing and a shoring
She give you all her loving

Monica agency
Work in fashion industry
Dispatch from Taiwan
Snapshot of Gok Wan

Overtime is a perk
Arcadian Captain Kirk
Where 15,000 people used to work

Monica
Gets subsidised meals
Monica
Supress how she really feels
Listens to the radio and her feet just can’t keep still

Disposition sunny
She’s charming she’s funny
Spending all her money
In the land of milk and honey

 

Monica gets paid for her time
Is reaching her prime
Eastern Europeans have to pay for their crime

Monica Hudson Road carrying a heavy load
Slow Motion Head Explodes Coat Hangers Depeche Mode

Monica qu’est que c’est
Live to fight another day
Breaking down the barriers
That stand in her way

 

Russian Doll

Matryoshka dolls are we
Open up and set us free
When you observe us
We come to be

Songs from a dolls house
Once upon a time
In the land of make believe

Toy soldiers play dead
Persnickety easily led
Rocking horse and Big Ted
Watch you sleeping in your bed

Step inside the gallery
Your paintings on the wall

Russian doll
There’s my sisters and my mother
Russian doll
We are the image of each other
Russian doll
We fit inside of one another
Russian doll
We all dance to the tune of the grand composer

Step into my nursery
You children of the fall
Ragdoll clown adversary
All creatures great and small

Sonya Rostova
Natasha Rostova

Identical in uniform
We don’t disguise our shape and form
Different flavours different size
Come and play lets improvise

Money box the penny drops
Take me with you to the shops
Leapfrog jumps and bunny hops
The noise around us never stops

I’m a Russian doll
I’m gonna give you my love

 

Common Room Queen

Common room queen
In a rock ‘n’ roll dream
Goes to a place where they
Can’t hear her scream
Her life’s a geek tragedy

Say what you like she won’t care
Living on a wing and a prayer
Take a look try not to stare
At the girl with auburn hair

Don’t cry for me geek tragedy

Riots not diets she won’t stay quiet
Banging the drums crashing the hi hats
Out of the loop won’t jump through the hoop
I heard on the grapevine she won’t join the group

How she astounds in unflattering gowns
Dancing around to beautiful sounds
They say she’s a geek and she’ll never be chic
I wonder what we’d say if we ever did speak

Common room queen
In a rock ‘n’ roll dream
Before you point a finger
Make sure your hands are clean

Don’t cry for me geek tragedy

 

Lighten up Morrissey

Please don’t be miserable please don’t be sad
The things that you lost you never had
Maybe it won’t turn out to be quite so bad
Remind me of the things that make me glad

Who needs a doomsayer when the bus is late
There’s no need to meet me at the cemetery gates
And growing up is only a phase
There aint no such thing as always

Lighten up Morrissey

So don’t be gloomy if the people stare
They stagger around they’re worse for wear
You act like you just don’t really care
Waving those flowers in the air

Lighten up Morrissey
Burn bright but stay light
Stay light burn bright

Hand in glove or mannequin
Just like a puppet on a string
Tails you lose and heads you win
Heaven knows she’s missing him

Lighten up Morrissey
Burn bright but stay light

 

Shaggy and Scooby

Staying in all summer

Creature from the lagoon
Chasing me from room to room
My legs are running but I don’t move
Hope the others get here soon

If I get lost along the way
In the maze with the waifs and strays
If I am like them who will be like me
Staying in watching Shaggy and Scooby Doo

If your boat don’t come in
Swim out to it
Staying in all summer

Monsters from outer space
Swept up in the latest craze
Unmask the villain reveal the fate
Get prepared to be amazed

If I get lost along the way
Technicolor world starts to fade
If I am like them who will be like me
Staying in watching Shaggy and Scooby Doo

If your boat don’t come in
Swim out to it
Staying in all summer

Haunted houses pleasure rides
Count Dracula and his bride
Have got to hide from morning light
Supernatural delight

If I get lost along the way
Irrational fears make me afraid
If I am like them who will be like me
Staying in watching Shaggy and Scooby Doo

The truth is strange but it’s still true
At the end of nowhere I wait for you.

The Forever Alones

Grace under pressure began the discourse
A crying potato on the valentine’s board
Forever alones
The forever alones

We shared our laughter
We shed our tears
We grew up together
In the formative years

We like the Beatles we like the Stones
We are so retro we like what we know
To the movies or maybe a show
To have a great time wherever we go

Karmen is our style guru
Feline beauty purring through
And here is Lucy right on cue
May the Fawce be with you

Katherine Tolkien miracle
She don’t do hysterical
Never been known to be cynical
A busy bee waxing lyrical

Forever alones
The forever alones

Jen got charisma Jen got finesse
A good natured girl a booming business
Beckie and Fionnuala have flown from the nest
In pursuit of happiness
Moaning Evelina beautiful dreamer
Is a damsel in distress

Runescape John and his avatar
He’s our fake boyfriend in the blue oyster bar
Megan and Nicole are Venus and mars
And I’m laying in bed looking up at the stars

AÍslinn plays guitar like Jimmy Page
Ain’t no new technology that she cannot break
Won’t answer the door when opportunity knocks
Don’t need a lover when you got an Xbox

Forever alones
The forever alones

No need to say farewell
Before we go our separate ways
We are the Frones
Forever alones
Until our dying day.

Tomorrow Never Knows
(Lennon/McCartney)

Turn off your mind, relax and float down stream
It is not dying, it is not dying

Lay down all thoughts, surrender to the void
It is shining, it is shining

Yet you may see the meaning of within
It is being, it is being

Love is all and love is everyone
It is knowing, it is knowing

And ignorance and hate mourn the dead
It is believing, it is believing

But listen to the colour of your dreams
It is not leaving, it is not leaving

So play the game existence to the end
Of the beginning, of the beginning
