PROGRESS: 2010

Progress_(Take_That_album_-_cover_art)

THE FLOOD

Standing on the edge of forever

At the start of whatever

Shouting love at the world

Back then we were like cavemen

But we met the moon and the stars

Then we forgave them

We will meet you

Where the lights are

The defenders of the faith we are

When the thunder turns around

They’ll run so hard we’ll tear the ground away

You know no one dies

In these love drowned eyes

Through our love drowned eyes

We’ll watch you sleep tonight

Although no one understood

We were holding back the flood

Learning how to dance the rain

We were holding back the flood

They said we’d never dance again

Bleeding, but none of us leaving

Wash your mouth son

Or you’ll find yourself floating home

Here we come now

On the dark star

Seeing demons

Not what we are

Tiny minds and eager hands will try to strike but none will end today

There’s progress now

Where there once was none

Where there once was none

Then everything came along

Although no one understood

We were holding back the flood

Learning how to dance the rain

There was more of them than us

Now they’ll never dance again

Although no one understood

There was more of them than us

Learning how to dance the rain

We were holding back the flood

They said we’d never dance again

 

We will meet you

Where the lights are

The defenders of the faith we are

When the thunder turns around

They’ll run so hard we’ll tear the ground away

Although no one understood

There was more of them than us

Learning how to dance the rain

There was more of them than us

They said we’d never dance again

 

SOS

Save our souls we’re splitting atoms

Go tell Eve and go tell Adam

Liberate your sons and daughters

Some are gods and some are monsters

We’ll get a five minute warning for divine intervention

With the satellites falling prepare for ascension

 

Under mind control

We’ll be practising our politics

Defending all our policies

Preparing for apocalypse

Don’t let the hungry serpent see you no

No, no, no, no, no

 

She’ll let you fall asleep then eat you whole

It’s like a bullet to the head

It’s an SOS, it’s an SOS, oh yes, oh yes, it’s an SOS

It’s an SOS, it’s an SOS, like a bullet in the head, it’s an SOS

 

When the levee breaks

And Manhattan sinks

There won’t be water fit to drink

When the winter’s warm

And the summer’s cold

The poison stops you looking old

 

You’ll get a five second warning for divine and intervention

And the satellites are falling prepare for ascension

As the earth looks on

The odds or probability

Of losing all capacity

To function it’s hereditary

No antibiotic can save us now

No, no, no, no, no

We are the virus that we talk about

 

It’s like a bullet to the head

It’s an SOS, it’s an SOS, oh yes, oh yes, it’s an SOS

It’s an SOS, it’s an SOS, like a bullet in the head, it’s an SOS

It’s an SOS it’s an SOS, oh yes, oh yes, it’s an SOS

It’s an SOS, it’s an SOS, like a bullet in the head, it’s an SOS

 

Like a bullet in my head… Like a bullet in my head

It’s an SOS, it’s an SOS, oh yes, oh yes, it’s an SOS

It’s an SOS, it’s an SOS, like a bullet in the head, it’s an SOS

It’s an SOS it’s an SOS, oh yes, oh yes, it’s an SOS

It’s an SOS, it’s an SOS, like a bullet in the head, it’s an SOS

 

WAIT

Turning into cannibals and everything that she wants is made out of minerals

I don’t know what I done she only speaks in subliminals

The reception here is lousy and the service is minimal

(Oh no! )

I live with an Eskimo I

(Swallowed! ) cause we become mechanical and

(Hollow! ) I seem to make you miserable so take your tiny chemicals cause I need a miracle

(Free your soul to me)

Meet me on the corner cause the wall’s on fire

(Words can set us free)

Can you make it go away make it stop! Stop!

Wait! There’s something that I want to say

Something that we hid away

Something that I’d like to change

These words have never left a mouth

We never got to get it out

Communication not allowed

Somethings we don’t talk about

(On no! )

I’ve fallen off a pedestal and your selected memory is really quite incredible

(Tomorrow! )

When you get forgettable I’ll try being wonderful yet totally inedible

(Free your soul to me)

Meet you there in China cross the wall of fire

(Words can set us free)

Can you make it go away make it stop! Stop!

Wait! There’s something that I want to say

Something that we hid away

Something that I’d like to change

These words have never left a mouth

We never got to get it out

Communication not allowed

Somethings we don’t talk about

(Free your soul) Free your soul to me

(Words can set us free)

Can you make it go away make it stop! Stop!

Wait! There’s something that I want to say

Something that we hid away

Something that I’d like to change

These words have never left a mouth

We never got to get it out

Communication not allowed

Somethings we don’t talk about

Wait! There’s something that I want to say

Something that we hid away

Something that I’d like to change

These words have never left a mouth

We never got to get it out

Communication not allowed

Somethings we don’t talk about

 

KIDZ

Kings and Queens and Presidents

Ministers of Governments

Welcome to the future of your world

Through talking heads that took liberties

The monkeys learnt to build machines

They think they’ll get to heaven through the universe

 

They say nothing

Deny everything

And make counter accusations

My friends, my dear, my love, my God

There’ll be trouble when the kidz come out (come out)

There will be lots for them to talk about (about)

There’ll be trouble when the kidz come out

When the kidz come out, when the kidz come out

When the kidz come out

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey

What you looking at

Hey, hey, hey, hey

You want a bit of that

Hey, hey, hey, hey

There will be trouble when the kidz come out

When the kidz come out

Hey

Mirror, mirror on the wall

Who’s the fairest of them all?

The Good, the Bad, the Ugly or the Beautiful

Because it’s up hill and against the wind

With no-one there to let us in

Leave your thoughts and save yourself you fool

The daggers of science

Evolving into violence

We’re not sure where the fallout blows

But we all know ·

There’ll be trouble when the kidz come out (come out)

There will be lots for them to talk about (about)

There’ll be trouble when the kidz come out

When the kidz come out, when the kidz come out

When the kidz come out

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey

What you looking at

Hey, hey, hey, hey

You want a bit of that

Hey, hey, hey, hey

There will be trouble when the kidz come out

When the kidz come out

Hey

Out on the streets tonight

They’re making peace tonight

They’re making peace

La, la, la, la…

There’ll be trouble when the kidz come out

There will be lots for them to talk about

There’ll be trouble when the kidz come out

When the kidz come out, when the kidz come out

 

PRETTY THINGS

Down down let your crazy out

Boys go crazy over you

Grip like a new york window cleaner

Just staring at you

Youth don’t leave me, hair stay on me

God I love those hips

Oh memory don’t forsake me

Not like this

All those pretty things, don’t sweat the pretty things

So collectable, why not collect them all

Obviously cunningly, womanly

All those pretty things, god bless the pretty things

They’re still out there somewhere

Making men feel this way

At fallen broadway station

I see them every day, all day

 

Download a little meditation

It might pull you through

She blinded me with silence

Anchored here with you

All those pretty things, don’t sweat the pretty things

So collectable, why not collect them all

Obviously cunningly, womanly

All those pretty things, god bless the pretty things

All those pretty things, don’t sweat the pretty things

So collectable, why not collect them all

Obviously cunningly, womanly

All those pretty things, god bless the pretty things

Does she talk like ooh ooh ooh

Will it feel like ah ah ah

Does she tell you what she wants

Can you give her what she needs

Youth don’t leave me, hair stay on me, god I love those hips

Oh memory don’t forsake me, not like this

All those pretty things, don’t sweat the pretty things

So collectable, why not collect them all

Obviously cunningly, womanly

All those pretty things, god bless the pretty things

All those pretty things, don’t sweat the pretty things

So collectable, why not collect them all

Obviously cunningly, womanly

All those pretty things, god bless the pretty things

HAPPY NOW

I get the feeling that we are being lied to,

There’s a surge in my psychosis every turn of the screw

And I’m half awake in paisley print.

I can see the world clearly but I have to squint.

I am a supersonic specimen.

A minor miracle of medicine

I’m at the mercy of unwanted emotions.

Where nothing matters, beneath my thoughts

Beneath my thoughts is where it happens.

Super heavy elements, Embrace me

Super heavy elements, replace me

Was it a positive experiment?

To be indefinitely decadent

And they checked my pulse and it gave them hope

That there was no truth to what was wrote

Give me half as much but twice as fast today

Might slip away

I feel myself falling

I’m feeling happy now,

I feel myself falling

I’m feeling happy now

I feel myself falling

I’m feeling happy now

Feeling happy now

I’m at the back of the club and so afraid to speak

Cos I’m not like these people

And these people are not like me

Super heavy elements, upgrade me

Supersonic elements amaze me

Your opinion is irrelevant

I was built to be magnificent

And they checked my pulse and it gave them hope

That there was no truth to what was wrote

Give me half as much but twice as fast today

Might slip away

I feel myself falling

I’m feeling happy now,

I feel myself falling

I’m feeling happy now

I feel myself falling

I’m feeling happy now

Feeling happy now

I haven’t scratched the surface of my desire

In the world of dreams, I’m a frequent flyer

Super heavy elements, Embrace me

Super heavy elements,

I feel myself falling

I’m feeling happy now,

I feel myself falling

I’m feeling happy now,

I feel myself falling

I’m feeling happy now,

I’m feeling immortal

We’ll live forever now

We’ll live forever now

UNDERGROUND MACHINE

I, I’m just a piece of your pie chart

You’re in a room with a rock star

Only I play the good parts of a kind heart

The sky’s too low and the room’s too dark

But she just carries on

And I get her in but her friend gets turned away

But what can I say?

When the boy meets girl and the girl meets boy

And the boy thinks the girl’s all right

Get your head out the library

Get the courage of the cavalry

You might be good looking,

But you can’t sleep with yourself tonight

Oh what a beast, oh what a man

You’ve gotta get it while you can

Oh what a beast, oh what a man

Oh I, I wish that beggars were choosers

Unload my love like a looter

I need some gas and a kick start, for a good heart

The lightings cheap, and the room is cold

But she just carries on

And you’ll get no sleep

But you might be turned away

So what will you say?

 

When the boy meets girl and the girl meets boy

And the boy thinks the girl’s all right

Get your head out the library

Get the courage of the cavalry

You might be good looking,

But you can’t sleep with yourself tonight

Oh what a beast, oh what a man

You’ve gotta get it while you can

Oh what a beast, oh what a man

Oh what a beast, oh what a man

When the boy meets girl and the girl meets boy

And the boy thinks the girl’s all right

Get your head out the library

Get the courage of the cavalry

If you’re so good looking

Why don’t you sleep with yourself tonight?

Oh what a beast, oh what a man

You’ve gotta get it while you can

Oh what a beast, oh what a man

Oh what a beast, oh what a man

You’ve gotta get it while you can

You’ve gotta get it while you can

You’ve gotta get it while you can

Oh what a beast, oh what a man

WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME?

My greatest fear is we’re just wasting tears

Wasting several years, still being round here

My greatest fear is maybe you will notice

I’m not what you wanted after all these years

 

But I, I’ve got a very big hope for us

I’m gonna keep looking up for us

It’s been a difficult year

And I, I still wanna make love with you

So where do we go from here?

What do you want from me?

What do you want from me?

I, I still think I belong with you,

I still wanna belong to you

So what do you want from me

What do you want from me now?

Your greatest fear is we’re not getting wiser,

We’re not wise at all

It’s getting harder, harder to recover

From the night before, when you turn me on

But I, I like to think of us moving on

I like to think of us getting on

So answer me where do we go from here,

Where do we go?

Because I, I still wanna get old with you

I still want us to grow

What do you want from me?

What do you want from me?

I, I still think I’m in love with you

I still feel you’re the one

So what do you want from me,

What do you want from me now?

Has it crossed your mind we might already know?

If we only let it go?

Yeah I, I still wanna have sex with you

I still wanna go out with you

So what do you want from me?

What do you want from me?

I, I think some days we’re beautiful

I think some days we’re not

So what do you want from me?

What do you want from me now?

Let’s make it positive

What do you want from me?

What do you want from me now?

We’re making progress here, so where shall we go?

What do you want from me?

What do you want from me now?

AFFIRMATION

It’s just a fraction of time,

Until we move into reverse,

Can feel the pressure and all the minds,

And the whole Universe.

Is it a question of force,

And a physical law,

We’ve had this battle a thousand times,

Never been here before,

Never been here before.

Ain’t got the strength to fight anymore,

Got no desire to die anymore,

I need an affirmation

I want to see you again, again, again…

Ain’t’t got the strength to fight anymore,

Don’t even know what I’m fighting for

I need an affirmation

We’re at the end of the line

At the start of the race

I want to swim where the water falls

Off the edge of your face

I’m reaching out for the light

Past the silhoutte of you

In the cold reflection of time

Is a point of view

Can you see me like I see you

 

Ain’t got the strength to fight anymore

Got no desire to die anymore

I need an affirmation

I want to see you again, again, again…

Ain’t got the strength to fight anymore

Don’t even know what I’m fighting for

I need an affirmation

I wanna fill you with love

I wanna see you survive

Just a second to know yourself

For the rest of your life

We’re just a minute away

From the place that we wanna be

We’re not really falling apart; we’re just incomplete

We’re not really falling apart; we’re just incomplete

We’re just incomplete

We’re just incomplete

I need an affirmation

I need an affirmation

I wanna see you again, again, again, again, again

EIGHT LETTERS

We became the parade on the streets that we once cleaned,

Expendable soldiers smiling at anything

Raised on a feeling our lives will have meaning eventually

We were once the answer and then you discover

Your actually just one thing after another and

What was the question and why was the lesson so deafening.

 

This all that matters now

And that was all that happened anyhow

You can look back but don’t stare

Maybe I can love you out of there

And when I went away what I forgot to say was

All I have to say eight letter three words one meaning

And outside forces didn’t make it easy so I thought I’d go before you leave me

Self preservation was no explanation for anything

Oh but the truth is more than we’ll ever comprehend

I’ve just started to understand my friend

all of that distance cause I fell in love with the enemy

This all that matters now

And that was all that happened anyhow

You can look back but don’t stare

Maybe I can love you out of there

And when I went away what I forgot to say was all I had to say

eight letter three words one meaning x2

At last we meet on no man’s land just footprints in the sand

We meet on no man’s land at last

And when I went away what I forgot to say was all I had to say

eight letters three words one meaning x2

One meaning, just one meaning, one meaning

FLOWERBED

Darling please forgive me

I was sitting on the fence

I was slowly going out of my head

I did not hear a word that you said

I was enjoying myself sleeping in your flowerbed

If I could take your blows, If I could get pass go,

If I could find a way of fixing the things that I broke

Then I would, if I could

And I might understand how I ended up a man

And I might understand how I ended up a man

But the truth is hard to find

When it’s playing tricks with your mind

Darling please forgive me

I was hanging with my friends

I was slowly getting outta my head

I did not hear a word that you said

I was enjoying myself sleeping in your flowerbed

I was enjoying myself sleeping in your flowerbed
