Track Name: No Tobacco, No Jesus!
A long time ago came a print in the dirt
made by a stranger but soon everybody heard
he laid down a home where the ground was smooth
then along came his friends and they all tried to prove

(Chorus)

No Tobacco, No Jesus. No Tobacco, No Jesus!

Well speeches were made say's we're put to the test
by the fervour of holy righteousness
the shaman called a talk, though it kinda surreal
so they said "hey wait, lets just make a deal!"

(Chorus x 2)

Well all through the savannah and all round the world
there's erosion of culture and destruction of homes
allegiances are made, well they might sell your soul
and throw it away to the power of Rome.

(Chorus to end)
Track Name: Back In The Real World
I spent the day upon a mountain
where I was cradled by a tree
the moors of lavender they brushed me
the mists they cleared and I could see

Then I joined apace the status race, a sneering gargoyle dressed in lace
on escalators, confiscators, money-takers, honey fakers and terminals full of haters, terminals full of haters
And I know
Yes I know

(Chorus)
I'm back in the real world
Back in the real, real word
Back in the real world
back in the real, real, real, wide world

Beware the fungi fellows' reach
a raptor rises on the breeze
Please am I worthy of a-teaching?
Is this a portrait or a tease?

Then I laid the cards down, paid a guardsman, inhaled a mix of hydrocarbons
On the street, where wheels are feet, the air's your enemy and a coke is your treat
The sky is your enemy and a coke is your treat
and I know, yes I know!

(Chorus)

I used to think the clouds had faces
lift my arms towards the storm
Oh carry me to sacred places
Where every rock has me reborn...

Now I count my money, have my say, stand on a platform, make my day!
Give the orders, know my place, achieve respect and win the race
Help the mighty, ignore the crimes, the firm has sent an alibi and my lover is an XR2i, Yes my lover is an XR2i, i i i i i i
and i know that I'll be happy when I die
yes I know that I'll be happy when I die...
and I know..
and I know that I've truly arrived..

I'm back in the real world
Back in the real, real word
Back in the real world
Back in the real, real, real, real, real, real, real, real, real world,
back in the real, real, real, wide world
Track Name: Feels Like Sunshine
Please be with me for ever more,
I don't want to close the door.
In the darkness, the air is still,
broken silence, like bird's song shrill.

(Chorus)
Feels like sunshine, tastes like sugar, sounds like thunder, 'cross the water,
the rain is washing my drowning sorrow,
the bell is tolling across the river.

A rainbow painted into the sky,
air like a tower, feel the spirits slide.
A scent of Autumn, smell of decay,
The Moon relfecting my final wave.

(Chorus)

High and dry, above, deep inside, to The Earth I sacrifice,
deep into the soil my spirit slides, to The Earth I sacrifice.

(Chorus x2)

The bell is tolling, tolling, tolling, tolling.
Track Name: Big Low Copper Moon
Under a big, low, copper moon I wanna kiss you, wanna kiss you, wanna kiss you
I've been gone, too long, I'm coming home soon and I've missed you and I've missed you and I've missed you.

Every night, I'm gone away, try to pass the time until the break of day
Back to you, I wanna swim
but the tide keeps rolling in

Under a big, low, copper moon I wanna kiss you, wanna kiss you, wanna kiss you
I've been gone, too long, I'm coming home soon and I've missed you and I've missed you and I've missed you.

In this bad old, crazy world
our hope is in the love between a boy and a girl,
'til the morning sun arise..
we might catch on fire!

Under a big, low, copper moon I wanna kiss you, wanna kiss you, wanna kiss you
I've been gone, too long, I'm coming home soon and I've missed you and I've missed you and I've missed you.

Under a big, low, copper moon I wanna kiss you, wanna kiss you, wanna kiss you
I've been gone, too long, I'm coming home soon and I've missed you and I've missed you and I've missed you.

Under a big, low, copper moon I wanna kiss you, wanna kiss you, wanna kiss you
I've been gone, too long, I'm coming home soon and I've missed you and I've missed you and I've missed you.

...and I've missed you and I've missed you and I've missed you
Track Name: The BlueYellows - Humankind (bonus)
Are you, have you ever been...
a member of the dreamer's dream?
A painter of an art unseen?
They said you are, they said you are,
they said you are, they said you are

Touching beauty and evil at the same time
touching beauty and evil at the same
touching beauty and evil at the same
beauty of a human kind.

Walking through this broken land,
so many hopes have run to sand,
so many crushed by the iron hand
they said you are, they said you are,
they said you are, they said you are.

Touching beauty and evil at the same time
touching beauty and evil at the same
touching beauty and evil at the same
beauty of a human kind.

Touching beauty and evil at the same time,
Touching beauty and evil at the same time
Touching beauty and evil at the same...... same time

Touching beauty and evil at the same time
touching beauty and evil at the same
touching beauty and evil at the same
beauty of a human kind.
