Track Name: A tap on the shoulder
I JUST GOT TAPPED ON THE SHOULDER,
SOMETHING TAPPED MY LEFT SHOULDER,
AND I'M SITTING IN MY LONELY ROOM,
YEAH I GOT TAPPED ON THE SHOULDER
SO I TURNED AND LOOKED RIGHT OVER
BUT THERE WAS ONLY ME IN THE ROOM.

COULD IT BE ME OR DODDIE OR THE BUTTON PUSHER,
WILL I EVER SEE THE FINGERS THAT DID TAP ON ME?
YEAH I GOT TAPPED ON THE SHOULDER,
SOMETHING TAPPED MY LEFT SHOULDER,
AND I'M SITTING IN MY LONELY ROOM.
THE SUN IS MELTING MY WINDOW IT IS SPRINGTIME AND THE SUN I
IS SHOWING ME THAT LIFE HAS NOW BEGUN
YEAH I GOT TAPPED ON THE SHOULDER,
A PROFOUND TAP TO THE SHOULDER
AND I'M SITTING WRITING TO YOU

I WILL TAP YOUR LEFT SHOULDER
WHEN I'M GONE AND LOOKING OVER, T
TA-AP LEFTEYE IN YOUR ROOM

YOU LOCKED ME OUT MY HOUSE, Y
YOU TAPPED ME ON THE SHOULDER,
YOU PUT MY BIKE INTO THE HOUSE,
YOU PUT THE SEAT UP ON MY BIKE,
YOU'VE BEEN MESSIN' WITH MY BIKE,
WRITE AND SMASH C.D,
YOU'RE CHANGING CHANNELS ON MY T.V.
Track Name: Moths
I HAD MOTHS IN MY BELLY BUT COULDN'T TELL WHY,
IT WOULD SOON BE MY TIME TO CRY
OR DIE INSIDE FOR A WHILE
A HEAD IN THE SAND TAKES NO COMMAND
THE THINGS I DONE I NEVER PLANNED
FINALLY
A HEAD IN THE SAND TAKES NO COMMAND
THE THINGS I DONE I NEVER PLAN
OH FINALLY MY FORTUNES COLLIDE
THEY'RE SET IN STONE
AND MY FATES ATTACK ME FROM BOTH SIDES
I'LL FINISH THIS STORY IF I SURVIVE
Track Name: Child of yesterday
SHE'S A CHILD OF YESTERDAY BUT HER TEARS STILL FALL TODAY MOTHER TELL THE CHILD OF TOMORROW TO LOVE
SHE'S A CHILD OF YESTERDAY BUT HER TEARS STILL FALL TODAY
DON'T TAKE IT TO THE GRAVE THE WICKED WORDS.
SHE SAID DON'T CRY YOU CAN GROW
BUT YOUR STILL THE SEEDS THEY SOW
DEEP INSIDE THOSE WICKED WORDS WON'T FADE

OH FATHER LOOKING UP FROM BELOW,
WHERE DID YOU GO? WHERE DID YOU GO?
OH MOTHER, BROTHERS FOLLOWING SLOW AND HE SEEN THE SHOW WE ALL SEEN THE SHOW OF LOVE

FREE THE CHILD OF YESTERDAY CAUSE HER TEARS STILL FALL TODAY YESTERDAYS GONE IT'S TOMORROW NOW WHAT CAN BE CHANGED DON'T CRY BELIE, DENY AND DIE INSIDE
JUST DON'T PASS YOUR SADNESS DOWN THE LINE

BACK, TOUCH ME IN THE PAST REACH BACK, TRY TO TOUCH ME
Track Name: Mr. Petals
MR. PETALS IT'S THE WINTERS END,
MR. PETALS COME ON ROUND AGAIN

IN MY MIRROR THERE WAS A MIRROR
AND IN THAT MIRROR I SAW HIS EYES
WHEN I TURNED TO ONE SIDE THEN BACK AGAIN
THERE WAS A FLOWERBED WITH FLOWERS OF ALL KINDS

SEE THE WAY SHE MOVES YOU CAN FEEL HER GROOVES
THE FLOWERS DIG THE MOVE OF THE FLOW
GROOVIN' THEY FOLLOW THE SUN AS THEY GO
ON AND AROUND, HE GOES ROUND AND AROUND

PLEASE TAKE THIS LESSON FROM THE MOTHER NATURE KIND
BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE AND THE WORLD HAS LEFT YOU BEHIND
PLEASE TAKE THIS LESSON FROM THE MOTHER NATURE KIND

MR PETALS SHINING EYES MR PETALS TELLS NO LIES

MR. PETALS IT'S THE WINTERS END
MR. PETALS COME ON ROUND AGAIN
Track Name: Riversong
SUMMERTIME IS FADING ONCE AGAIN IT'S MARKING TIME
STROLLING ON LEAVING OUR LIVES BEHIND
THIS IS NOT MY SEASON THIS IS NOT MY TIME
PLEASE FORGIVE ME IF I FLY

STANDING BY THE RIVER CATCHING FISHES EYES
THEY ALL LAUGH AS THE WATERS PASS THEM BY
OURS IS NOT TO REASON OURS IS NOT TO WHY
PLEASE FORGIVE ME IF I LIE
I HEAR THE SEASONS CALLING THE GEESE ARE IN THE SKY
MARKING OFF THE YEARS OF OUR LIVES
AND YOU CAN'T TAKE EXCESS BAGGAGE ON THIS FLIGHT

CRYING GHOSTLY CHILDREN STAND BY THE TREELINE
WAVING TRY TO BRING ME
YEAH THEY'RE WAVING TRYING TO BRING ME TO THEIR SIDE

RIVERS LIKE A MIRROR I CAN SEE SMALL SHAPES BEHIND
WHISPERING CHILDREN TELL ME OF THEIR PAST LIFE

ONCE WE REACH OUR SOFT LIFE ON THE OTHER SIDE
WE'LL DANCE LIKE WE ALWAYS HAVE INSIDE

THE SUN WAS LOW AND SETTING HE SEEMED HAPPY TO BE GONE DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME NOT GROOVIN WHEN I'M GONE

STANDING BY THE RIVER CATCHING FISHES EYES
THEY ALL LAUGH AS THE WATERS PASS THEM BY

Track Name: Godfrey Bartholomew
THE MADMAN AWOKE SO FULL OF LIFE
THE ONES THAT HE STOLE
WITH THE POINT OF A KNIFE

HE CAME MARCHING THROUGH THE FIELDS
GODFREY BARTHOLOMEW
IF YOU SEE HIM DON'T GO NEAR
HE'S AFTER SOMEONE NEW

HE'LL BE COMING OUT TODAY
WEARING HIS MADMANS HAT
HE'LL BE COMING OUT TO PLAY
AT CHOPPING YOU DOWN WITH AN AXE

BUT IT'S THE DISEASE IN HIS MIND
WHEN VOICES PASS BY HIS WINDOW
LISTENING ALL OF THE TIME TO VOICES FROM ABOVE

HE CARRIES A TWISTED HEAD
AN OWL WAS ONCE HIS FRIEND
BUILDING UP HIS HOPES ON A PREMATURE END

HE CAME MARCHING THROUGH THE FIELDS
GODFREY BARTHOLOMEW
AND WHEN THE SUN HAS CROSSED THE SKY
I THINK I'LL FOLLOW HIM TOO

HE'LL BE COMING OUT TODAY
WEARING HIS MADMANS HAT
HE'LL BE COMING OUT TO PLAY
AT CHOPPING YOU DOWN WITH AN AXE
SO LOOK OUT
