Track Name: Records in the Basement
She went into the basement and she went through all the records
And dug through broken boxes as she wobbled on the floorboards
The purr of furry foxes harmonising with the singers
The dust got in her eyelids and the splinters in her fingers

She found no-one listening
In time she'd hear whispering

In time, no-one's listening
Tonight no-one knows

Say goodbye to inhibitions and so long to superstitions
Spoke the records in the basement and the sleeves upon the table
She heard them sing in Cantonese, she heard them sing in Japanese
She listened to the singers with splinters in her fingers

Outside no-one listened in
Tonight only pound signs in their eyes

Do they realise?
Will they realise?

Outside no-one listened in
Tonight only pound signs in their eyes
Is she saying her goodbyes?
No-one knows
Track Name: Chumps Like Smee
Sometimes when she looks down she sees fireworks
Sprouting like her mother's household plants
Sometimes when she looks down she sees fireworks
Yes she does

Sometimes when she looks up she sees pirates
Not the violent kind, but chumps like Smee
Sometimes when she looks up she sees pirates
Yes she does

I wonder if she'll wake up and remember

Sometimes when she looks down she sees fireworks
Track Name: Vuvuzela Venezuela
Luminous paw prints pepper the sky on the horizon
Washed up on the shore, the evening sand began to whiten

The sea was Copper Sulphate blue, the records she'd been sifting through were spinning
The disco-ball was spherical, her moves were slightly chemical and tipsy

Oh yes a twist-necked turtle found his way from Venezuela
She greeted his arrival with a parp on her purple Vuvuzela

The grass was Nickel Sulphate green, the records she'd been dreaming in were spinning
The disco-ball was spherical her grooves were slightly comical and giddy

She was the last girl dancing in the midnight rain
She turned Canada into Spain like it was nothing
But she didn't mean it

She found the missing moon rocks with Leo Sayer's Fortune Teller
Hidden in her school socks, she divvied them out amongst her friends

They boshed the stones to charge their bones, then hummed in teenage dulcet tones in tandem
They danced in adolescent glee to a brand new Free Swim EP.
How random.

She was the last girl dancing in the midnight rain
She turned Singapore into Spain like it was nothing
But she didn't mean it

Singapore, Canada in her brain
Singapore, Canada or was it Spain?
Singapore, Canada what's in a name?
Singapore, Canada OK!

She was the last girl dancing in the midnight rain
She turned Lebanon into Spain like it was nothing
But she didn't mean it

She was the last girl dancing in the midnight rain
She turned Uruguay into Spain like it was nothing
But she didn't mean it
Track Name: No More Tunnels
She needs to get herself a little piece of the action
She needs to see for herself what goes on
Cause no-one really knows what goes on

She seems to be part of a chemical reaction
Starts to see for herself what goes where
Cause no-one really knows who goes there

She likes it

She needs to get herself a little piece of the action
She needs to see for herself what goes on
Cause no-one really knows what goes on

She seems to be part of a serious distraction
Starts to see for herself in her sleep
All the things she never thought she'd see

And she likes it
Track Name: The Snooze Function
A touch on the shoulder, a cup by the bed
Is she awake or somewhere else instead?
Staring through her feet at vague memories
Melodies

The strangest of nights, dreaming in lights
She'd seen the seasons, the beacons, the skies
She'd sung solutions - gold melodies
Memories

She'd seen a Panda and watched as she climbed
She'd seen a man with two hands by her sides
She'd seen a bromance - gold mysteries
And now she believes in mysteries

Out in the ether, in space
She fell in love then all over the place
Solutions - those old melodies
She believes

Show her the love songs and the lies
Play her the music and all it's goodbyes
Sing the solution, her own melody
(and now she believes)
Show her the love songs and the lies
Show her the lost souls and all their goodbyes

Sing the solution - it's your own melody
