Track Name: Acoustic Addiction
May night, it’s a shindig
Blundstones, and no bigwigs
Strucky said “I need a show”
Two weeks, ready to go
Two weeks, ready to go

Gez’s bar, it’s a big thing
Fire-pit’s, and bingeing
Pint night, AJ and crash
Hear it for miles, oh what a bash
For miles, oh what a bash

The word is out, they came in droves
Gerry’s bar at the end of the road
Came to drink, cheer and fun
Joint was a pumpin, acoustic addiction

Next day, its legend
Grape talk, and sledging
Big yarns, shrowded in grog
Big sip, hair of the dog
Big sip, hair of the dog
Big sip, hair of the
Track Name: Tell Me Lady
Tell me lady, what I got to do
Tell me lady, what I got to do
Don’t like trouble, between me and you

Cap in hand, down on my knee
Cap in hand, down on my knee
Sorry baby, forgive me please

Oh I can’t, plead more now
Can’t say, more now
Oh baby forgive me please
Oh I can’t take it back now
It’s a fact now
Ooh baby forgive me please

Your my lady, I need you back
Your my lady, need you back
Your my lady, I need you back
Let’s start again, let’s get you back
Track Name: Kinda Hazy
Oh hey, feelin kinda hazy
Oh hey, things got crazy
Bottles and bodies, all over the place
Should have seen rooster, off his face
Rock and Dave, went pretty hard
Scotty did the starfish, what a card

Big night boys, gave it a crack
Empties and ashtrays, kingdom and back
Mullets, singlets, flannel and cords
Good time boys, yeah

Oh hey, feelin kinda lazy
Oh hey, things got crazy
Oh hey, I’m feelin kinda hazy
Oh hey, things got crazy, Oh hey
Track Name: Mad Time
It’s been a long time, rose days
Such a long time, since we played
Oh I fear, fearing, mad time

Remember, those days, want return
Remember, blue days, all that I’ve learn’t
Oh I fear, fearing, mad time

Blue sky, spring air
Laugh time, we shared
Oh I fear, fearing, mad time
Oh I fear, fearing, mad time
Oh I fear, fearing, mad time
Track Name: Outback Show
Burning fire, edge of road
Sunset red, sky it glows
Outback state, lost in time
Endless sky, silent rhyme

And I strode
To the outback show

Dusty Thongs, lips feel dry
Sunburnt skin, NG fried
Distant sounds, draws me too
Brings me in, just like glue
Track Name: Fair Go
From the time we’re a tacker, shaped in a mould
Carved our heritage, customs of old
Here in this southern land, a giant melting pot
We take with a grain of salt, gullible were not

Grinning like a shot fox, they dangle the cash
Buying votes it’s all about, promises to trash
Spoon fed the yabber, the polly’s of the day
Laugh at election time, santa’s come out to play

Fair go, fair go, fair go, oh oh

Raising more moolah, find a new tax
Please politicians and bureaucrats
Enough of the verbal, enough on our plate
Freedom is living, without red-tape
Track Name: Spinning Top
The world is going around, we’re all in the frame,
Keeps getting faster until the top begins to lean

We’re falling, falling, falling

Pushed into the game, with strings inside our brains
Strapped in tight, racing wheel, robots all the same

Crack of dawn we race, to pillar and post and back,
Run round like headless chooks, it’s time and space we lack,
Standing at the port, this spinning top’s a trap,
We run, we can’t jump out, there’s no turning back, oh no

We’re riding in the big top, backs against the wall
Spinning in circles, faster until we fall
Track Name: You Love Me Too
Shooting across the cosmos, to be there with you
Speeding through the vortex, to share my life with you
Feel it in my heart, you love me too

Join me on the coaster ride, a journey for two
Take my hand, it’s time to fly, you’ll love the view
Feel it in my heart, you love me too

I’ve got that feeling, you love me too
I’ve got that feeling, you love me too
Feel it in my heart, you’ll say “I do”
Track Name: Hangover Blues
Woke up in the arvo, might have overslept,
Got a bit carried away last night, memories kinda messed
Certainly like a beer or two, never asked why
Wonder why we numb our brains, wonder why we fly
Why, Why, Why, Why, Why? These Hangover blues

Don’t call me a wowser, don’t get me wrong
Been known to have a drink or three
Sometimes I stay too long
These hangover blues
Why, Why, Why, Why, Why? These Hangover blues

Ooh my head is pounding, Geez I’m feeling crap
Want to, want to, stay in bed, I really, really, need, a nap
These hangover blues
Bye, Bye, Bye, Bye, Bye, These Hangover blues
Track Name: Trance Like Beat
Sun is going down, the moon light’s up the street
Feel my blood is pumping, pulse the beat
Night owls are moving, big smoke they come
When they find their place of trance, work is done

Groove will hypnotise you, trance like beat
Blues will take you higher, tap of your feet

Darkness in the city, coldness all around
Inside the groove house, warmth is found
Forget about your troubles, leave’m at the door
Family of the blues house, packed the floor
Track Name: Think I'm Dreamin
Yee-eee-ah, think I’m dreaming,
Yee-eee-ah, think I’m dreaming

Soaring like an eagle, dreaming I can fly
Feeling I can spread my wings,
Soaring mountain high
Yee-eee-ah, think I’m dreaming

Jungle’s made of concrete
Walls instead of trees,
Ditched my wings, carbon jet
Dreaming baby please

Looked into the jungle, see those hungry eyes,
Can’t catch me, got my jet, dreaming I can fly
Yee-eee-ah , think I’m dreaming,
Yee-eee-ah, think I’m dreaming
Track Name: Sliding Doors
Looking for the secret, oh where to go
Keep on, keep on trying, sliding doors
Can’t go back, and I can’t go forth,
Looking at the sides
Must be an exit, place to hide

What a ride, I’m alive, What a ride, I’m alive

Breaking down the mortar, brick by brick
Chipping away, and it seems too slow,
makes me sick
See the light, shining through, across the floor
See the handle on that door, sliding door

Ooh sliding doors
Open, sliding doors
Ooh sliding doors
Open, sliding doors
