01. Daylight Goes To Town

Lyrics by Mogg/Moore
I remember you when you was me
Oh what a beautiful sight
You'd cool it up or you'd cool it down
From some dizzy, dizzy height

I can still hear that rolling sound
Like a diesel in my head
Sometimes I wake and I think of you now
Forgetting that you're dead

I was born on a rolling train
Running when I hit the ground
I watch these wheels turning now
Nothing here, nothing left
Watching the daylight fade away
Watching the daylight go to town

This hotel room's like the wild, wild west
And there's strangers moving underground
I still have your photograph
It picks me up when I'm feeling down

Pull up a chair and you pour me one
Let's kick back and let it roll
There's nothing here and there's nothing left
But watching the daylight go to town

We'd get swept up caught up in a fight
You just couldn't let it go
I watch these wheels turning now
Nothing here, nothing left
Watching the daylight fade away
Watching the daylight go to town

Don't you fade away

[Solo]

Well I guess I'm walking right back home
Got to set this all down
Pull up a chair and you pour me two
Cos there's nothing here, nothing left
But watching the daylight turn around
Watching the daylight go to town
Watching this world spin around
Watching the daylight go to town


02. Black Cold Coffee

Lyrics by Mogg/Moore
Captain Midnight and Captain Cruise
Out on the ocean like a storm of bad news
It took three monkeys in a plastic mac
To fit inside a paper sack

And they're cooking up an alibi
Cooking up some steam
Out in the madness
Somewhere in Orleans
They had a plan, they had a plot
Beggars and blues was all they got

Black cold coffee
Black Irish soup
Cold on a silver spoon
She's dancing through hoops

Baby's wishing on a wishing well
She's moving up and ringing her bell
Can't fly to heaven on a Persian rug
So put some coins in the old sailor mug

They travelled up together
From the coast
East of Aldgate
Silently like ghosts
They had a scam, they had a scheme
For drunks and bums counting beans

Black cold coffee
Black Irish soup
Cold on a silver spoon
She's dancing through hoops

[Solo]

Black cold coffee
Black Irish soup
Cold on a silver spoon
She's dancing through hoops


03. The Wild One

Lyrics by Mogg/Moore
We was going through a lifetime
I had a banshee on my back
We was down in Corpus Christie now
Picking up the slack
Now I was wondering where the wild boys
Had started off and gone
This memory's jamming buttons
Stuck on some old song

And if you get this message
Leave a sign or make a call
Mohammed's left his calling card
And it's written on the wall

Looking for the wild one, wild one
Looking for the wild one,
Looking for the wild one,
Looking for the wild one

She was gone in twenty seconds
Right before my eyes
No more honey kisses
No more long goodbyes
And I feel like pink nevada
Or cooler shade of blue
Mother earth is closer now
Walk me out in the morning dew

And if you get this message
Leave a sign or make a call
Mohammed's left his calling card
And it's written on the wall

Looking for the wild one, wild one
Looking for the wild one,
Looking for the wild one,
Looking for the wild one
Looking for the

[Solo]

Sometimes I stop breathing
Just to feel reborn
And it feels like rolling thunder
Blowing through the corn
Through my back pages
I can see the change
There's a storm a'coming now
Coming through the rain

[Solo]

And I'm out here drifitng
A million miles alone
Floating in a spaceship somewhere
Falling like a stone,
Falling like a stone

Still looking for the wild one,
Yeah yeah


04. Give It Up

Lyrics by Mogg/Way/Moore
Well here's the good news
And here's the bad
It could hurt you darling
It could make you happy or sad

Ooh here she comes now!

It was a radio
Playing on the running board
With a Hey someone singing
My Sweet Lord
She was calling now
Come on in, let's get free
Where we go doesn't matter
If you just love me

Cos falling down,
Time after time
Falling into the sea
Standing up's tough enough,
Tough enough for me

Give it up, give it up
It's raining stones
Give it up darling, rattling bones
Give it up, give it up
It's called fate
Give it up darling
Lift off this weight

I've laid down in the gutter
Looking up at the stars
Washed by the rain
And these passing cars
I wanna feel something
And it's called happy again
I'm gonna leave this town,
Change my name
Won't be back again

Cos falling down,
Time after time
Falling into the sea
Cos standing up's tough enough,
Tough enough for me

Give it up, give it up
It's raining stones
Give it up darling, rattling bones
Give it up, give it up
It's called fate
Give it up darling
Lift off this weight

[Solo]

Give it up, give it up
It's raining stones
Give it up darling, rattling bones
Give it up, give it up
It's called fate
Give it up darling
Lift off this weight

Give it up, give it up
It's raining stones
Give it up darling, rattling bones
Give it up, give it up
It's called fate
Give it up darling
Lift off this weight

Give it up, give it up
It's not too late
Give it up darling, rattling bones
Give it up, give it up
Don't let go
Give it up darling
Lift off this weight


05. Call Me

Lyrics by Mogg/Moore
She looked for truth inside a bottle of rain
Posted an ad then changed her name
On a roller coaster that just couldn't be caught
She left one note at the hotel last resort

And it said
Call me, don't let me down
Walk me on the water
Don't let me drown - no.
Call me, don't let me down
Walk me on the water
Don't let me drown,
Don't let me drown

Well the precious friends and their special needs
They're like a cancer that just feeds and feeds
Saddle up and let's get out of here
You don't need one more to shed one more tear
You couldn't make a stand now
You couldn't get it right
I only got this message now
Late, late last night

Call me, don't let me down
Walk me on the water
Don't let me drown - no.
Call me, don't let me down
Walk me on the water
Don't let me drown,
Don't let me drown

Call me

[Solo]

Call me, don't let me down
Walk me on the water
Don't let me drown - no.
Call me, don't let me down
Walk me on the water
Don't let me drown,
Don't let me drown


06. Slipping Away

Lyrics by Mogg/Moore
All the world knows
Yet none know well
To shun the heaven
That lead men to this hell

If all the stars
Disappear and die
And I am looking at an empty sky
Oh I'll be damned
Back behind the sun
This kind of love
Can't be bought or won.

And when every second counts
When the minutes
Turn a night into a day
Because the closer you get
The further you slip away
Because the closer you get
The further love slip on away

When the summer rain came
Well it kissed our feet
And a magic moon lay down on our street
Oh love and death
It's like war and peace
One single outreach
On this empty beach
Cos you're damned if you do
And you're damned if you don't
Want her to stay oh hey, hey
Because the closer you get
The further you slip away
Cos the closer you get
The further love slip on away,
Slipped away
Ooh na na na na na na, na na na na na na
Slipping away, slipping away

These plastic bags and these crushed up cans
This twisted wreck on some foreign land
Better hold close what you hold so dear
Cos the vanishing point is coming oh so near
All this world knows
Yet none know well
To shun this heaven
That lead men to this hell
The closer you get
The further you slip away
I said now, the closer you get
The further love slips away, slips away, slips away
The closer you get, the further you slip on away
Cos the closer you get, the further love slips onaway,
Slipping away


07. The Spark That Is Us

Lyrics by Mogg/Bonham/Moore/Raymond
One more time said the Lady Jane
Walk on in the fire
Chinese whispers ringing now
Step into the mire
I've been strung out to dry
Blowing in the gale
My name's been left hanging,
Hanging on your nail
All the misfits
Are flying like a kite
All of my friends
Have come to see the fight
Oh oh, the spark that is us
This love has never gone away
Oh oh, the spark that is us
I hold a moment every single day

I can hear the choirboys singing
And it's falling on my ears
I can hear the trumpets playing
Running down the years
Don't ask me how the world looks
How it looks tonight
I'm gonna be leaving babe
Outta here and outta sight

I've been laying down
Coming off the rails
I've been chasing shadows
Playing happy trails

Whoa oh oh, the spark that is us
This love has never gone away
Whoa oh oh, the spark that is us
I hold a moment every single day

[Solo]

Whoa oh oh, the spark that is us
This love has never gone away
Whoa oh oh, the spark that is us
I hold a moment every single day

Whoa oh oh, the spark that is us
This love has never gone away
Whoa oh oh, the spark that is us
I hold a moment every single day


08. Sympathy

Lyrics by Raymond
So you've seen the sunrise on the Nile
Solved the mystery of the Mona Lisa's smile
You proclaim your innocence
What you're saying
Makes no sense to me at all

So you help the needy and the sick
Heard confessions from a lunatic
My eyes are growing dim
Ghost shadows closing in
Around me now

And there ain't no sympathy at all
Just a sea of angry faces
Staring at me
There ain't no sympathy at all
I gotta find someone
To make me happy

So you've scattered roses at Versailles
Wiped a teardrop from an old man's eye
Seeing you in such distress
I'm afraid I must confess
That boys don't cry

And there ain't no sympathy at all
Just a sea of angry faces
Staring at me
There ain't no sympathy at all
I gotta find someone
To make me happy

[Solo]

And there ain't no sympathy at all
Just a sea of angry faces
Staring at me
There ain't no sympathy at all
I gotta find someone,
Gotta find someone,
Gotta find someone


09. Mr. Freeze

Lyrics by Mogg/Moore
Hey now
This year I've been feeling kinda weary
Oh, next year I may not come back at all
Sometimes I hear the angels singing
Or I can hear my mother's call

Give me a cadillac for a carriage
And you'll hear my name
Whispering through the trees
You can call me Mr. Black
You can call me Mr. Grey
Or you can call me simply,
Call me Mr. Freeze

And tonight I'm feeling kinda beautiful
Tonight I'm feeling kinda warm
And there's a touch of humour
In everything I see
Oh there's a touch of scorn

Give me a Mercedes for my baggage
And hear my name on the breeze
You can all me Mr. Black
You can all me Mr. Green
Or you can call me simply,
Call me Mr. Freeze

If you please. Mr. Freeze

[Solo]

Give me a cadillac for a carriage
And you'll hear my name
Whispering through the trees
You can call me Mr. Black
You can call me Mr. Grey
Or you can call me simply,
Call me Mr. Freeze

Give me a Mercedes for my baggage
And hear my name on the breeze
You can all me Mr. Black
You can all me Mr. Green
Or you can call me simply,
Call me Mr. Freeze

If you please


10. Jelloman

Lyrics by Mogg/Moore
Hey yeah yeah
Give up that booze
And take out the trash
Give up the night life
And stop smoking that hash
Give up the good sex
It's a heart attack
Surrender life
Wrap it up in a sack

All dressed up in the king's new clothes
Climbing up the monkey's nose
Standing out like a stiff on parade
You're overworked and underpaid

Jello man, jello man
Got you on the run
Jello man, jello man
Blocking out the sun
Jello man, jello man
Beating on his drum
Jello man, jello man
Got you on the run yeah

Stop all the traffic
Put this time on hold
Stop all the press
Cos it's been bought and sold
Stop the revolution
There's nothing left to fight
Will the last man standing
Turn out the light

Standing out with the freaks in the cold
Sucking down on a Virginia gold
The cabaret's all dressed for the kill
They'll stiff you now and give you the bill

Jello man, jello man
Got you on the run
Jello man, jello man
Blocking out the sun
Jello man, jello man
Beating on his drum
Jello man, jello man
Got you on the run yeah

[Solo]

Jello man, jello man
Got you on the run
Jello man, jello man
Blocking out the sun
Jello man, jello man
Beating on his drum
Jello man, jello man
Got you on the run yeah

Jello Man


11. Baby Blue

Lyrics by Mogg/Moore
Bet you never thought that time would go so fast
Bet you never thought a memory would last
Is it wrapped up in boxes with your old fashioned crazies
Packed all away with life's scars and grazes

Hey baby blue
I still remember you,
Still remember you
In my life
Hey baby blue
Where you running now,
Where you running now
In your own life

Going round and round and round
In my little world
Going round and round and round
In my little world

Everytime I saw your face
There was magic in the air
I see a sunny San Francisco morning
Baby you meet me there
Sometimes I'm left wondering
Sometimes it makes me so blue
Let me take you down to Mexico
Cos I'm still in love with you

Everytime I get to thinking, thinking of you
Under a sweet corrella, does it burn you too
And if sometimes I wonder when,
When sleep don't come at night
I still move and I groove and I jump and shout
Oh God I'm still in for the fight

Hey baby blue
I still remember you
Don't leave the world behind
Leave the world,
Leave the world behind

[Solo]

Going round and round and round
In my little world
Going round and round and round
In my little world

Hey baby blue
I still remember you,
Still remember you
In my life
Hey baby blue
Where you running now,
Where you running now
In your own life


12. Swallow

Lyrics by Mogg/Bonham/Moore
If sometimes I could make you happy
If sometimes you're feeling small
The truth is mine just to do what I wanna do
This love is mine just to say what I wanna say

Out on this lonely road
Cold coffee and a cigarette
Making a long distance call
I'm on some losing bet

We're not going down
We're not gonna take it baby
We're not going down
Anyway you want it
We're not going down
We just got to be together now
And if you're feeling hollow
Hey, hey now swallow

And if your love's been lost and forsaken
If you've been left passed up and broken too
The choice is yours just to be where you wanna be
And the truth is yours just to see what you wanna see

Out on this lonely road
Where the black top never ends
We're racing up the hills
But we're losing it on the bends

We're not going down
We're not gonna take it baby
We're not going down
Anyway you want it
We're not going down
We just got to be together now
And if you're feeling hollow
Hey, hey now swallow

[Solo]

We're not going down
We've gotta be there together babe
We're not going down
Anyway you want it now
We're not going down
We've gotta be there
We've just gotta be together babe
And just your crazy ways
Oh there's not an ordinary day
Oh no
