Track Name: Anna
'Anna' Lyrics by Conrad Williams:

With Anna in my mind i set my sights on the town
shes the girl that i now care about
she's shown me everything i needed
she's entered my life and enriched it

Anna, Anna, Anna, Anna

now Anna's gone and i don't know why
she's left we've said our goodbyes
there's water in my eye and its blurring the picture
through the haze i believe i can see her

Anna, Anna, Anna, Anna
Track Name: B Sting
'B Sting' lyrics by Conrad Williams:

Verse 1:
B sting, like it, hold it cos you like it
Hold it cos you like the way,
it hurts to be yourself, you wait for someone else,
But hold it till you get away

Bee sting and it hurts, humming as you walk the
Line each day.
It hurts to be yourself, you wait for someone else,
But hope that it don't get away.

Chorus 1:
B sting lighter
Has her waiting,
burn it brighter
Trust in her

Verse 2:
its harder when you get it so you better start calling
Oooooooo
its harder when you get it so you better start calling
B sting, like it, hold it cos you like it
Hold it cos you like the way,
it hurts to be yourself, you wait for someone else,
But hold it till you get away.

Chorus 2:
B sting lighter
Has her waiting, ooo
burn it brighter
Trust in her

Verse 3:
its harder when you get it so you better start calling
Oooooo
its harder when you get it so you better start calling

Bridge:
How does she know she doesnt cos she likes it.
How does she like it. How does she hum it when you get like B.
How does she know. she does it cos she likes it.
How does she like it. How does she hum it when you get like B.

Chorus 3:
B sting lighter
Has her waiting
B sting lighter
Trust in her

Verse 3:
its harder when you get it so you better start calling
its harder when you get it so you better start calling

i’ve been a loner when the B stings lighter
i’ve been a loner when the love starts falling
I’ve been a loner when the light starts fading
its harder when you get it so you better start calling
Track Name: Marina
"Marina" Lyrics by Conrad Williams:

Marina will you marry me
I whipped up a storm in you
I sailed all over you
Marina will you marry me

I fought the beast and won
brought back a golden stone
just to be your favourite one
i placed it with the others at the foot of your throne
carved up a mountain side
stood aloft the top and roared and cried
to gain some of your attention
show you a little of my affection

Marina will you marry me
i whipped up a storm in you
i sailed all over you
Marina will you marry me

She is tempted by the fire
caught up in that steely mind
he looks up at the moon and smiles
captured by those emerald eyes
ooo oo oo oooooo

Thieves snuck in and played my heart
overtures, quartets the made
they left no stone unturned
subtlety was not their game
inside out refreshed ready to go again
like a blank slate wiped clean
the heart has forgotten
inside out refreshed ready to go again
like a blank slate wiped clean the heart has forgotten

So Marina will you marry me
i whipped up a storm in you
i sailed all over you
Marina will you marry me
Track Name: October
'October' Lyrics:

One afternoon in october,
the phone rang in my room.
You had left your life was over,
the dream faded and soon.
I left to make you a cup of tea,
cake for you my love, but none for me.
There you were still as can be,
in your calmness in your sleep.

In your slippers lined with fur,
But you felt cold to her.

Goodnight sweetheart to you from us,
a goodnight and a grave wthout much fuss.

The flowers have died has it been so long
Since i cried and cried through your sad song

Goodnight sweetheart to you from us,
a goodnight and a grave without much fuss.

Now you've gone to that place where we may go,
when we've had enough of life below.
That place where maybe it all began,
that place they call heaven.

Goodnight sweetheart to you from us,
a goodnight and a grave without much fuss.
Goodnight sweetheart to you from us,
a goodnight and a grave without much fuss.
Track Name: Honey
'Honey' Lyrics by Conrad Williams:

Honey she gets like, honey loves forth, she gets in and under me
don’t stay all your love for me
don’t stay your love for your attitude

Honey love forth, now get in n under don’t fall, hop on n under me.
Honey don’t stay your love for ,

The calmness is getting me
The calmness is getting to meee
When i fall, i see you right beside me following,
The calmness is gonna find
Its gonna find a way to beee
With us all, i’ll see you right beside me following.

Least when i fall, this colour, its a racing around inside of me
Least when i fall, this colour, its a danger roughin’ and there’s trouble to be
When i fall, this colour, have to lay this soul down when you get to me
Least when i fall, there’s colour, but there’s a danger when we’re calling

Honey honey honey honey honey honey honey
V2

Honey she gets like,honey loves forth, she gets in n under me
Honey don’t stay all your love for me
don’t stay your love for your attitude

Honey love forth, now get in n under don’t fall, now hop on n under me.
Honey don’t stay your love for,
don’t stay your love for sure

Prechorus 1
The calmness is getting me
The calmness is getting to meee
When i fall, i see you right beside me following,
The calmness is gonna find
Its gonna find a way to beee
With us all, i’ll see you right beside me following.

Least when i fall, this colour, its a racin around inside of me
Least when i fall, this colour, its a danger roughin’ and there’s trouble to be
When i fall, this colour, have to lay this soul down when you get to me
Least when i fall, there’s colour, but there’s a danger when we’re calling

Honey honey honey honey honey honey honey

Track Name: Hyperspace Junkie
'Hyperspace Junkie' lyrics by Conrad Williams:

Last contact with mission control, Now the radio has gone.
We’re moving in to position now, The count down has begun.
Muted mics and lights down dim, We’ve switched all shields on.
We’re gearing up for hyperdrive, And the phasers locked to stun.

falling through heaven through this vacuum here in space
Did I really find an angel is that star dust on her face
When I look at her she could have fallen from space into the clouds
But the smile on her face is frozen is this a hyperspace junkie that I’ve found

Coasting over enemy lines, All we can see are stars,
The radar’s set to pick up mines, we’re wondering where the enemy are.
We’re scanning the scene but nothings there, The silence is oh so sharp,
As they look on the crew get scared, And then a ship comes from the dark.

Falling through heaven through this vacuum here in space.
Did I really find an angel is that star dust on her face.
When I look at her she could have fallen from space into the clouds.
But the smile on her face is frozen is this a hyperspace junkie that I’ve found.

Is this a hyperspace junki, that I;ve found
Is this a hyperspace junki, that I;ve found

Ship draws in with lights down low, We’re wondering whats gone wrong,
Who’s on board nobody knows Where have all the crew gone.
I step on to check it out my men watching over me,
Space suit and helmet now my phasers locked to kill.

Ships run down I radio back there’s no-one left alive,
Leaving now I’m making tracks and then figure catches my eye.
I’ve captured one of the crew and I’ve brought her back on board,
Fallen in love and she has too its hyperspace junki that I’ve caught .

Falling through heaven through this vacuum here in space,
Did I really find an angel is that star dust on her face.
When I look at her she could have fallen from space into the clouds,
But the smile on her face is frozen is this a hyperspace junkie that I’ve found.

Is this a hyperspace junki that I;ve found
Is this a hyperspace junki that I’ve found
This is a hyperspace junkie that I’ve found
Track Name: Spell
'Spell' lyrics by Conrad Williams:

A pat on the back he spun around
Got a mouthful and one in the eye, Another in the other.
As he went down,
a hand to his face to wipe it dry, no protection or cover.
clothes sticking to his skin,
he arched his back over to make a shelter for his kin
He tilts his head to one side,
to cast a shadow on the water in his eyes

I'd be there when he fell, they’d done nothing wrong
They thought they could cast a spell, they’d done nothing wrong
They thought it was possible
They thought they could rise up out of that house.

They’d been waiting for some love from you
Waiting for some answers for the questions that were planted
Hoping it would come soon
Keeping on expecting everything perfected
oh their hopes down low
to leave a light on, or forget it all
but they’d waited too long
and in the end that light it turned off

I'd be there when he fell, they’d done nothing wrong
They thought they could cast a spell, they’d done nothing wrong
They thought it was possible
They thought they could rise up out of that house.

One day they found a wishing well
and each they cast that spell
and one by one they fell
and with it they ended that living hell

One day they found a wishing well
and each they cast that spell
and one by one they fell
they thought they could rise up out of that house
Track Name: Genie
'Genie' lyrics by Conrad Williams:

It starts with an emotion,
A tearing of a peaceful sky
Thunder coming crashing in n
Carving up the silence of the night
Destroying what is beautiful
To watch as creation is defaced
Smash a diamond on the floor
Watch as the pieces race away

Cos Lichtenstein said its fine, you fall in love this time,
even if she says she don’t like you
But you’ll pay with something more, than just your cell phone call
When you ask her if she’d hold you too
So Beware of a crime scene, with the teeth, dripping with lust
Those shiny silver molten drops of love
She enjoys the crisis as she quickens the pace
But afterwards she leaves you in that stranded place
afterwards she leaves you in that stranded place
afterwards she leaves you in that stranded place
afterwards she leaves you in that stranded place

Lichtenstein said its fine,
you go ahead and fall in love this time, tho she don’t like you
you’ll pay with something more, than just your cell phone call,
When you ask her if she’d hold you too cos,

It starts with an emotion,
A tearing of a peaceful sky
Thunder coming crashing in n
Carving up the silence of the night
Destroying what is beautiful
To watch as creation is defaced
Smash a diamond on the floor
Watch as the pieces race away

I won’t follow, I won’t get like thee.
I won’t be blinded, By your beauty.
I won’t stoop low, I won’t go that way.
I won’t be blinded, by your jealousy.
I won’t join you in the crime scene, with teeth, dripping with lust
Those shiny silver molten drops of love
She’ll enjoy the crisis when she quickens its pace
But afterwards she leaves you in that stranded place
afterwards she leaves you in that stranded place
Track Name: You've Got A Hold Of Me
"You've Got a Hold of Me" lyrics by Conrad Williams:

You pass me by and i hear you say
Whats with this kid today
Well i’ve been saying all along
I’ve been saying all along
Wont you hear me saying it out from above
Won’t you hear me calling on up with my love
cos i’ve been saying all along
I’ve been saying all along
Saying out with you name
Saying it out with shame
Cos i’ve been saying all along
I like your words
I’d like them even more if they were real
I listened an i believed
But its a case of cat got your tongue
And you ‘ve got a hold of me

You pass me by and i hear you say
Whats with this kid today
Well i’ve been saying all along
I’ve been saying all along
Won’t you hear me saying it out now
Don’t you hear me shouting it out loud
cos i’ve been saying all along
I’ve been saying all along
Saying out with you name
Saying it out with shame
Cos i’ve been saying all along
I like your words
I’d like them even more if they were real
I listened an i believed
But its a case of cat got your tongue
And you‘ve got a hold of me

But its a case of cat got your tongue
And you‘ve got a hold of me
you take it out n beat it up, my heart
then you put it back all careful
retract your wings then open up
just why do you make me spin so
put some of that love in my cup
just who is it that you care for
whoever shows you the rough
you pretend that you care for
but i believe that you care for me
oh i believe you care for me
i believe you care for me
i believe you care for me
