01. Stuck On The Puzzle (Intro)

I’m not the kind of fool
Who’s gonna sit and sing to you
About stars, girl

But last night I looked up into
The dark half of the blue
And they’d gone backwards…

02. Hiding Tonight

Tomorrow I’ll be quicker
I’ll stare into the strobe light flicker
And afloat I’ll stay
But I’m quite alright hiding today

Tomorrow I’ll be faster
I’ll catch what I’ve been chasing after
And have time to play
I’m quite alright hiding today

And I will play the coconut shy
And win a prize even if it’s rigged
I won’t know when to stop
And you can leave off my lid, and I won’t even lose my fizz
I’ll be the polkadots tie
I’ll know the way back, if you know the way
But if you are, I’m quite alright, hiding today

Tomorrow I’ll be stronger, running colourful
No longer just in black and white
And I’m quite alright hiding tonight

And I will have a game on the coconut shy
And win a prize even if it’s rigged
I won’t know when to stop
And you can leave off my lid, and i won’t even lose my fizz
I’ll be the polkadots tie

I’ll probably swim through a few lagoons
I’ll have a spring in my step
And I’ll get there soon
To sing you a happy tune, tomorrow

And you better bring a change of clothes
So we can sail our laughing pianos along a beam of light
But I’m quite alright
Hiding tonight

03. Glass In The Park

There’s glass in the park
Darling, I can’t help but keep making appointments
To sweep beneath the climbing frame

If the sun’s in your eyes,
I’ll tighten your blindfold, baby
Don’t worry your foot won’t get cut
Strut carelessly

And when you say that you need me tonight
I can’t keep my feelings in disguise
The white parts of my eyeballs illuminate

And I’ll wait for you
As if I’m waiting for a stone to stop
I’ve heard them talking
About how I’m gonna put you off

There’s glass in the park
And now that I’m up off my knees
I’ve picked up the speed
To jump your palaces

And I shoot through the night
And suddenly all those once lost concoctions froth
And chase the day away

When you say that you need me tonight
I can’t keep my feelings in disguise
The white part of my eyeballs illuminate

And I’ll wait for you
As if I’m waiting for the stone to stop
I’ve heard them talking
About how I’m gonna put you off

You tell me, « how can I put you off when you’re a matter of urgency? »
I’ve got a million things that I need to do, but they’re all secondary
Make sure you’re not followed
Meet me by the Death Balloon

Paraselene woman, I’m your man on the moon
And like a grain of diamond dust, you float
And my devotion’s outer crust’ cracks

04. It’s Hard To Get Around The Wind

It’s like you’re trying to get to heaven in a hurry
And the queue was shorter than you thought it would be
And the doorman says, « you need to get a wristband »

You’ve got to lift between the pitfalls
But you’re looking like you’re low on energy
Did you get out and walk to ensure you’d miss the quicksand?

Looking for a new place to begin
Feeling like it’s hard to understand
But as long as you still keep pepperin’ the pill
You’ll find a way to spit it out, again
And even when you know the way it’s gonna blow
It’s hard to get around the wind.

Stretching out the neck on your evening
Trying to even out some deficit
But it’s saber tooth multi-ball confusion
And you can shriek until you’re hollow
Or whisper it the other way
Trying to save the youth without putting your shoes on

Looking for a new place to begin
Feeling like it’s hard to understand
But as long as you still keep pepperin’ the pill
You’ll find a way to spit it out, again
And even when you know the way it’s gonna blow
It’s hard to get around the wind.

I can hear you through my window
But I’m never quite sure who is who
But they want the world on a dessert spoon
It always sounds like they’re fightin’
Or as if that’s what they’re about to do
It might not hurt now but it’s going to hurt soon

05. Stuck On The Puzzle

I’m not the kind of fool
Who’s gonna sit and sing to you,
About stars, girl.

But last night I looked up into
The dark half of the blue,
And they’d gone backwards.

Something in your magnetism
Must have pissed them off,
Forcing them to get an early night.

I have been searching from
The bottom to the top
For such a sight
As the one I caught when I saw your

Fingers dimming in the lights
Like your used to being told that you’re trouble
And I spent all night
Stuck on the puzzle

Nobody I asked
Knew how he came to be the one
To whom you surrendered

Any man who wasn’t led away
Into the other room
Stood pretending

That something in your magnetism
Hadn’t just made him drop
Whoever’s hand it was that he was holding.

I have been searching from
The bottom to the top
For such a sight
As the one I caught when I saw your

Fingers dimming in the lights
Like your used to being told that you’re trouble
And I spent all night
Stuck on the puzzle

I tried to swim to the side
But my feet got caught in the middle
And I thought I’d seen the light
But oh no.

I was just stuck on the puzzle
Stuck on the puzzle.

06. Piledriver Waltz

I etched the face of a stopwatch
On the back of a raindrop
And did a swap for the sand in an hourglass

I heard an unhappy ending
It sort of sounds like you’re leaving
I heard the piledriver waltz
It woke me up this morning

You look like you’ve been for breakfast at the Heartbreak Hotel
And sat in the back booth by the pamphlets and the literature on how to lose
Your waitress was miserable and so was your food
If you’re gonna try and walk on water make sure you wear your comfortable shoes

Mysteries flashing amber go green when you answer but the red on the rest of the questionnaire never changes

I heard the news that you’re planning
To shoot me out of a cannon
I heard the piledriver waltz it woke me up this morning

You look like you’ve been for breakfast at the Heartbreak Hotel
And sat in the back booth by the pamphlets and the literature on how to lose
Your waitress was miserable and so was your food
If you’re gonna try and walk on water make sure you wear your comfortable shoes
