Track Name: Auntie Histamene
She's My Auntie Histamene
Track Name: Black is Black
You say that you will
Then you say you might
Your head is dim
But your tongue it is bright

Black is black
White is white
If it gets any blacker
Then you got to see the light

I like your heaven
I even like your hell
I like everything you do to me
You do that oh so well

When you like me it’s an angel
When you hate me you’re so kind
Your demons set my soul on fire
You really blew my mind

Black is black
White is white
If it gets any blacker
Then you got to see the light

Oh your kisses are so sweet
You kiss is on my mind
You hit me with your kisses and
My love for you is blind

Oh Kiss me in the alley
Or kiss me every night
Your lipstick stain upon my face
And I can only smile

Black is black
White is white
If it gets any blacker
Then you got to see the light
Track Name: Hide Out In This House
You know I really can’t admire a man, that never does a thing
You're playing all those records but, you didn't hear us sing.
I’m tired of whispering, and being as quiet as a mouse
and all you're ever going to do, is hide out in this house

in this house. This house

You hide away in this house, you never step out or do a thing.
You’re blind and deaf and you will never hear the church bells ring
But I’m tired of whispering, and being as quiet as a mouse
and all you're ever going to do, is hide out in this house

in this house. In this house
pop your head out

I was tired of the pretence of pacifying you
You never do anything new, seems you don’t wanna do what you really wanna do
I’m tired of whispering, and being as quiet as a mouse
and all you're ever going to do, is hide out in this house
Track Name: I See and End
You See a Beginning,
I See an End!
Track Name: It's Strange What Sound Can Do
It's Strange What Sound Can Do
It's Strange What Sound Can Do
Track Name: Pilled Up!
He’s a Pilled Up, Drunken, Drugged Up Freak!
He’s a Pilled Up, Drunken, Drugged Up Freak!

He got lost in a bottle,
He used to fly a plane.
He’s got lots of money,
in a a great big packet.
So we need to steal his jacket
And get all his cash
But he got lost in a bottle
Lost in a bottle

He’s a Pilled Up, Drunken, Drugged Up Freak!
He’s a Pilled Up, Drunken, Drugged Up Freak!

He got lost in a bottle.
He’s gone on a killing spree
He’s on the verge of madness
Lost in a bottle
Don't make eye contact
with him on the street
Because he's lost in a bottle,
He’s on the verge of madness

He’s a Pilled Up, Drunken, Drugged Up Freak!
He’s a Pilled Up, Drunken, Drugged Up Freak!

He wasn’t raised up
He was dragged up
He’s a Pilled Up, Drunken, Drugged Up Freak!
He got lost in a bottle.
Crashed at full throttle
He’s a Pilled Up, Drunken, Drugged Up Freak!
He’s a Pilled Up, Drunken, Drugged Up Freak!
Track Name: Spontaneous Baby
Spontaneous Baby
I wanna walk you home.
Spontaneous Baby
you shouldn’t be alone.
Spontaneous baby
it’s gonna be fine
Show me yours
I’ll show you mine
Track Name: The Spirit in Your Face
Your body is built for sin
Darling where have you been
You used to be so good
But a change has taken place
To the spirit in your face
Yes the spirit in your face

While I have been away
You went to another place
And now a change has taken place
to the spirit in your face
Yes the spirit in your face

There is a sadness in us all.
We’re just staring at the wall.
You are standing in the hall
unaware of it all.
But a change has taken place
To the spirit in your face
Yes a change has taken place
To the spirit in your face
Track Name: Wedding Bells and Rice
Write our names with pride
wedding bells and rice
Write our names with pride
wedding bells and rice

Oh faithful one, you are so nice,
I love you wedding bells and rice
Write your name alongside mine
Throwaway your old one, and use mine

Write our names with pride
wedding bells and rice

Honeymoon at the hotel
Oh, Switch out the light
Take your clothes off beneath the moonlight
wedding bells and rice

Write our names with pride
wedding bells and rice
Write our names with pride
wedding bells and rice

The Beach boys and the sunshine
Everything is just fine
Strip out of our clothes
You are mine tonight
I love you wedding bells and rice
I love you wedding bells and rice
I love you wedding bells and rice
I love you wedding bells and rice

Take hold of my hand
I'm flying as high as a kite
No more a party of one
I am wrong - you are right!
I love you wedding bills and rice
I love you wedding bells and rice

Carve our names with pride
wedding bells and rice

Write our names with pride
wedding bells and rice

Write our names with pride...

wedding bells and rice…
