Beasts that are round make no sound There are so many all over the world You are with me beneath the sea Turned completely upside down These are non-business days We are living for Slow down Then you feel non-business days From hereon out It’s inimical To you and I But so what? It’s a miracle we got this far yeah Beasts that are round make no sound There are many all over the world

00's Romance 02:48
We’re on a planet unknown I tell you now it implodes It’s all I can do to deal with getting up Safely in our zone And noting all are alone It was true it was doomed It was doomed it was doomed it was doomed And every love I’ve known Is every love that’s over before it’s begun Do you know? Yes you know oh I know that you know yes you know We could talk all night long What’s right now soon could be wrong I need to be sure it’s something we both want to do Oh I do oh I do oh I do oh I do oh I do And here is the parent and child We stumbled in time Using the same lines Smiling the same smiles It’s better not to be told OK to be on your own A swipe to the face To unlock an embrace A fleeting glance is enough A mystery stays untouched Another long lonely winter walk home And when you’re drunk and you’re high You’re screaming out to the sky “I don’t need anyone at all!” Now in the cold light of day Spirits have all flown away Do you want me, do I want you? Oh I do yes I do oh I do yes I do yes I do

Shoe Shop 01:01
Shoe shop shoe shop shoe shop Shoe shop shoe shop Shoe shop shoe shop shoe shop Shoe shop shoe shop It was over there A palace of footwear Passed through a thousand stores And ended up nowhere Shoe shop shoe shop shoe shop Shoe shop shoe shop Shoe shop shoe shop shoe shop Shoe shop shoe shop Tiptoed up the stairs I hoped they wouldn’t see Silence and secrecy Belief and non-belief I am not right I am not left I read the government typeset Cha cha cha (Keep on walking) Stepping on toes at the Shoe shop shoe shop shoe shop Shoe shop shoe shop Shoe shop shoe shop shoe shop Shoe shop shoe shop Shoe shop shoe shop shoe shop Shoe shop shoe shop Shoe shop shoe shop shoe shop Shoe shop shoe shoe shop Every time I go to the shoe shop I can’t get a size to fit

I fly by night, rush by day A crumbling little city To move to miles away When we unpack we say it’s for the last time One by one all my heirlooms go missing They say you rot if you decide to settle John flipped a house for more money He still ended up poor and distressed Sometimes he rents hotel rooms for a month One day he hopes to have his own store Why do we stay here? Why do we stay here? Mover mover mover The grass is always greener Why do we stay here? Why do we stay here? Pack your bags Go on a trip We’ll go off the map Why are you always escaping? What are you escaping from? Ten thousand nomads who roam can fit All their belongings in a bag Mover mover mover Mover mover mover Mover mover mover Mover mover mover Mover mover mover Mover mover mover There is a place where the grass is that much greener Mover mover mover Mover mover mover Mover mover mover Mover mover mover Mover mover mover Mover mover mover Tell me where is a place where the grass is much greener? Why are you always escaping? What are you escaping from? Ten thousand nomads who roam can fit All their belongings in a bag I’ll go and live in the mountains I’ll go and live in an apartment block We will get so excited To make something out of nothing

They let some kids out in 1944 A Swiss hotel then sent away to farms And outside the window The organ would play Everything comes to an end someday No hills, no trees, no birds, no flowers No hills, no trees, no birds, no flowers And outside the window Where the boy sat all day It was outside the window The organ would play Everything comes to an end Everything changes some day And every December promises a new May And outside the window And outside the window And outside the window The organ played

Lead a horse to water Take it to the stream When you need a motor Live inside a dream Do you think the night’s the right time To conjure up some plans for a while? I’m sure you really mean to But you have to really want to If a house needs building I get my tools prepared Pile the bricks and mortar Wipe away cobwebs And when I start a new day I recreate your home From whores view to pool view Nobody knows the fate of their bones Lead a horse to water Take it to the stream When you need a motor Live inside a dream Sky darkens and you tie up the rope Settle down for the night Lead a horse to water Take it to the stream

Once alone out walking I looked up to the trees The songbirds were all gathered And taking turns to speak Soon I heard many tales Of demons in their lair A jackdaw came swooping in His words hung in the air “What is not deserving The seagull ‘pon the land Daffodils in a warm field Hide the moths that turned to man Why does all the love we have Fade and fade again? Why is all our happiness Blown away like sand?”
