Track Name: What Would You Do?
What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?
What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?
What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?
What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?


Well I’d swim all the seas, reinstate all the bees, yes I’d grow myself a tail,
Drink all the rum, jig through the clouds, hair wild in its gale,
Well I’d stew all the sadness to be all the gladness and serve it right back to the world
Admit to myself that we only live once and absolutely refuse to bail…


What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?
What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?
What would you do oh, what would you do yeah...
What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?


What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?
What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?
What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?


What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?
What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?
What would you do oh, What would you do yeah...
What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?
Track Name: Hyper
As I look through the sunset, tonight…
I wonder what I want to write….


I’ve got chords a growing,
Melodies a rippling now,
Excitement gushes through my veins,
With the best of the past detained
I can’t wait to see what future remains
And I can’t wait to fall in love oh
I can’t wait to feel the pain!


Oh oh oh oh


Sing it loud, sing it proud
Show the world what you’re all about
You have full capabilities now
To be all you want to be now
Choose to win, don’t expect to lose
Give your wild nut grin and
Shake off those shabby shoes


Sing it loud, sing it proud
Show the world what you’re all about
You have full capabilities now
To be all you want to be now
Choose to win, don’t expect to lose
Give your wild nut grin and
Shake off those stupid blues, stupid blues stupid blue yeah!


Don’t know why but I feel it coming
Don’t know why but I feel it coming
Like a train thundering,
Rumbling a rumbling a rumbling
I hope you feel it coming,
I hope you feel it coming to you
I hope you feel it coming
I hope you feel it coming to you!!!!
Track Name: Rumdaddies
Let my heart grow wide
Let my love grow tall
Cos it’s all too beautiful
Yes it’s all too full
Of the wonder we just don’t see
Self obsessed with frustrated pity
So let go, oh let go…


So let our hearts grow wide
Let our love grow tall
Cos it’s too beautiful
Yes it’s all too full
Of the wonder we need to set free
Self obsessed with frustrated pity
So let go, oh let go…


Rum Daddies, rumjig it right up,
Rum Mummies, shake your feathers with us
Rum Sisters, shake your titties till dusk
Rum Brothers, yeah
Track Name: Into The Wild
Wind whip across my gentle face and show me that I and nothing in this place
Hill, show me who’s the wisest and the most beautiful that can be
Sky, remind that there is such a thing as purity
Sun deliver me from everything into nothing, for feeling free


Only nature tells the truth…
We’re all so messed up, corrupt and confused
Ripped out from our simple roots, perplexed in a closing noose
Oh we’re all cowards from the truth, but I don’t wanna lie no more
No I ain’t gonna lie no more


In your eyes
I see a new line of horizon,
It’s pulling me through this selfless parody
Synchronized with desires that I can’t stop fighting
I try to quit and just try to be


You can try to run, but when the time comes,
You can try to run, but when the time comes,
You can try to run, but when the time comes,
There’s nowhere to hide


That’s it, thats it, cos I’m quit this careless shit
Cos I ain’t gonna keep hiding, or seeking with no reason
Justification that can lead you anyway you want to stray,
So lets jump stoke the funk, shimmy and free yeh


In your eyes I see a new line of horizon
It’s pulling me through this selfless parody
Synchronized with desires that I can’t stop fighting
I try to quit and just try to be

You can try to run, but when the time comes,
You can try to run, but when the time comes,
You can try to run, but when the time comes,
There’s nowhere to hide

In your eyes I see a new line of horizon
It’s pulling me through this selfless parody
Synchronized with desires that I can’t stop fighting
I try to quit and just try to be


You can try to run, but when the time comes,
You can try to run, but when the time comes,
You can try to run, but when the time comes,
There’s nowhere to hide
Track Name: Oceans
Oceans you can throw me high into the sky
Oceans you can throw me high into the sky
But I’ll always come down, in raindrops of profound joy

Oceans you can throw me high into the sky
Oceans you can throw me high into the sky
But I’ll always come down, in raindrops of profound joy

Now there’s a sad story I have to tell, in this life it’s easier on the negative to dwell
The media pump our minds with all the evil done but I’m so sick of thinking we’re all wrong
So what about all the love and smiles that swapped every second of the day, by everyone, everyone?

This is what we should be dwelling on so come on

Let’s celebrate this fact –ohoh
Get together baby, dance and act
Love is what makes the world go round –ohoh
Love is what makes the world go round -yeah
Love is what makes the world go round, around around

Cos there’s too much to love and there’s too much to learn,
Fire in our eyes, prime energy to burn
Too much to discover, too much to admire
Relations to be told and stories to unfold
We’re all so lucky, to have it all!

So come on!
Let’s celebrate this fact –ohoh
Get together baby, dance and act
Love is what makes the world go round –ohoh
Love is what makes the world go round- yeah
Love is what makes the world go round, around around
Love is what makes, the world go round
Love is what makes, the world go round
Love is what makes, the world go round

Oceans you can throw me high into the sky
Oceans you can throw me high into the sky
But I’ll always come down, in raindrops of profound joy

Oceans you can throw me high into the sky
Oceans you can throw me high into the sky
But I’ll always come down, in raindrops of profound joy
Track Name: Misguided Beauty
A look of lost child eyes
Green, open for any surprise
Misguided beauty doesn't know what he's worth
Yet he's heavily quilted since birth

No one seems to have told him the price of himself
Yet he believes he's saturated oh saturated in a dark, dark spell, spell

Baby please believe me when I say
I didn't want to leave, I didn't want to leave
But I just couldn't stay la I just couldn't stay
Baby please believe when I say
I didn't want to leave but I Just couldn't stay....

Majestic times seem to entwine my life's path
trying to ease the hard fact
That I miss you, I miss you I miss you I miss you

Baby please believe me when I say
I didn't want to leave, I didn't want to leave
But I just couldn't stay la I just couldn't stay
Baby please believe when I say
I didn't want to leave but I Just couldn't stay....

Baby baby Believe me when I say
I didn't want to leave, I didn't want to leave
But I just couldn't stay la I just couldn't stay
Baby please believe when I say
I didn't want to leave but I Just couldn't stay....
Track Name: Dimensions
Sometimes I feel a thousand miles from anyone
A hostage to my own dimension
Don’t know if I wanna break out into reality beyond

I dance about, at ease with myself
Don’t know what I’m doing but what I am

No face, no body
A clear cloud that controls my mind
Don’t know what I’m doing, trapped in this cage
What makes you ugly? What makes you kind?
The only thing I can think of is perception of the mind
What makes you ugly? What makes you kind?
The only thing I can think of is perception of the mind

Perception of the mind
Perception, illusions, deceptions, solution, perception illusion- of the mind

On the understanding, on the understanding that it’s all for the good times
On the understanding, on the understanding that it’s all for the good times
In your mind, in your mind

Rumjigger jiggy
In your mind…
Track Name: Ego Bow Down
To yield the spiel amongst the mindless fields
I grasp an understanding so profound
To swim through the imagination, wide and proud
To see through these junkie clouds

Cos consciousness is nothing more, no more than consciousness is now
This is just pouring from the endless jug of metaphor

Look deep inside yourself, but don’t think
Expel the petty gloats and ignore
The fat and filthy status of your ego bow down

Cos you can just be, yes you can just be happy as you are
You can just be swimming, dancing and laughing, oh happy as you are
And Ella said, Ella Said

I’ve got plenty of nothing and nothing is plenty for me
I’ve got plenty of nothing and nothing is plenty for me
I’ve got plenty of nothing and nothing is plenty for me
I’ve got plenty of nothing and nothing is plenty for me

Inside out doubt to reality
Cause to combine the signs to realise
Doubt is a just a clout of the of the ego bow down…
Inside out doubt to reality
Cause to combine the signs to realise
Doubt is a just a clout of the of the ego bow down…

Inside out doubt to reality
Cause to combine the signs to realise
Doubt is a just a clout of the of the ego bow down…
Inside out doubt to reality
Cause to combine the signs to realise
Doubt is a just a clout of the of the ego bow down…

I’ve got plenty of nothing and nothing is plenty for me
I’ve got plenty of nothing and nothing is plenty for me
I’ve got plenty of nothing and nothing is plenty for me
I’ve got plenty of nothing and nothing is plenty for me
Track Name: One Life
I read in the news the other day
A guy of head corporate way
Blew himself up because he's isolated through millionaire status and so...
Apparently there's a 10 million square mile
2 mile thick brown cloud of man-made pollutants
Hovering above Asia suppressing sunlight...

Caused by western society...

Corruption, mass production, lack of mind expansion
Will all blow up in your face cause we can't consume your waste
So how can you smile, while you weave, this regardless fate..?

One life, one life, we abuse
One life

Why didn't we care from the first place?
We're the lucky ones who just a pan stuff our face
We're all caught up in this frenzied pace
Others living gracefully with what they can
No greed, no development, just life, just life

Wouldn't be nice to be certain once in while?
Wouldn't it be nice to understand their smiles?
Wouldn't it be nice to really know what's going on?

Wouldn't be nice to be certain once in while?
Wouldn't it be nice to understand their smiles?
Wouldn't it be nice to really know what's going on?

Why didn't we care from the first place?
We're the lucky ones who just a pan stuff our face
We're all caught up in this frenzied pace
Others living gracefully with what they can
No greed, no development, just life, just life

Passion grace and fire, greeting your desire
Passion grace and fire, greeting your desire
Passion grace and fire, greeting your desire...
Track Name: Yellow Coward
There’s a speculation I can see
A quantum side of fantasy
And ecstasy should grab my sides
Yet I prefer to pity the time

Skinhead beauty in my face
Yet all I can reply is my disgrace
Part fractures of green smear
I don’t know it yet but I need you near…

Physical attraction like mindless disfractions…
Oh, red tongue of yellow coward
Raptured reasons for endless want of

Skinhead beauty in my face
Yet all I can reply is my disgrace
Part fractures of green smear
I don’t know it yet but I need you… I need you near
Oh I yeah need need you near
Oh I need you near.

Skinhead beauty in my face
Yet all I can reply is my disgrace
Part fractures of green smear
I don’t know it yet but I need you… I need you near
Oh I yeah need need you near
Oh I need you near
Track Name: Rumgadge
Why do people look at me in a funny way?
I’m a normal person at the end of the day
No different from all the rest
Yet they all point laugh and jest
Is it the colour of my skin or am I too fat or too thin?

Don’t look at me and say
You’re ugly so go away
Cos all I need is a friend to take my heart and make amends amends
To take my heart and make amends

Look past the colour of my skin
Take the time to look right in
You never know what you find, you might like and
If you don’t then take a fucken hike
Don’t just stand and make me feel small
Push and push and push until I fall
I don’t like that, like that at all

Don’t look at me and say
You’re ugly so go away
Cos all I need is a friend to take my heart and make amends amends
To take my heart and make amends

Take your time, listen to what I have to say
Think about it, choose to obey
Yes ok I may not be perfect
But isn’t good friendship worth it?
Oh aren’t you glad you made the sacrifice
Found under it all I’m actually nice, nice, nice, nice

A little bit cou cou but alright?!

Don’t look at me and say
You’re ugly so go away
Cos all I need is a friend to take my heart and make amends amends
To take my heart and make amends
