Track Name: Bongdamongong
BondamongGong

Music by Reckoning (words Seamus)

Still alive,
Here in the dead of the night.
I have survived.
I'm back from the dead baby!
Back from the dead baby!

Still around,
New in this bloodthirsty town.
Underground.
I got that symbiotic sound boy,
That symbiotic sound baby.

Welcome to the Planet of Pure Light.
The Department hopes that you enjoyed your flight.
The Department hopes that you enjoy your stay,
But if you don't - well it doesn't matter anyway.

Time to BongdamongGong,
Time to clear my foggy head.
Time to BongdamongGong,
All the pretty flowers are dead, dead, dead.
Time to BongdamongGong,
The light was green but it turned red.
Time to BongdamongGong, BongdamongGong, BongdamongGong.

So shut up!
Yeah shut up!
Track Name: Come Back Susanne
Come Back Susanne

Music by Reckoning (words Seamus)

Come Back Susanne,
Spent three years in the wilderness but now I am free,
So come back to me.

I said
Come Back Susanne,
The Lord came down and touched my eyes and now I can see,
So come back to me,
Oh Susanne...

Lost in the wilderness,
Wild dogs and Satan at my heels,
I think of sweet Jesus and his cross,
And I know how he feels...

Lost in the wilderness,
I swim into the River of Death.
I beg forgiveness for my sins,
And then I draw my last breath...

For such is the punishment that you get,
When you forget how to love...
Track Name: Flying Saucer
Flying Saucer

Music by Reckoning (words Seamus)

A man with a house,
A man or a mouse?
Off the edge - it feels exactly the same.

A man with a face,
A rat in a race.
Off the edge - it feels exactly the same.

It feels exactly the same!

A man with a wife,
Or a man with a knife.
Off the edge - it feels exactly the same.

A man on bus,
Or a man on hearse.
Off the edge - it feels exactly the same.

It feels exactly the same!

Oh flying saucer won't you come and take me away?
Oh flying saucer won't you trip me through outer space?

Off the edge! Off the edge! The edge!

Oh flying saucer won't you trip me up through the stars?
Oh flying saucer could you drop me off on Mars?

Off the edge! Off the edge! The edge!

Flying saucer! Flying saucer!
Track Name: A Little White Fluffy Cloud
A Little White Fluffy Cloud

Music by Reckoning (words Seamus)

A girl is safe while walking the dog around here,
But I'm running away on a little white fluffy cloud.

A girl is warm while talking on the phone around here,
But I'm running away on a little white fluffy cloud.

I'm running away.

I'm running away on a little white fluffy cloud,
From people and places and faces and people and houses and cars

I'm running away on a little white fluffy cloud,
From people and places and faces to places like Venus and Mars.

I'm running away.
I'm running away.
I'm running away on a little white fluffy cloud.

Hoooaaaaaa-OoooooooAAAAAAOOOOOOOOOoooaaaaaoooh!!!
Track Name: Candle
Candle

Music by Reckoning (words Seamus)

Smash your life and put it on parade,
Up and down the streets of Adelaide.
Smash your television 'cos you're bored.
Spend your weekend lying on the floor.

And you ain't ever been saved.
And you ain't ever been me.
And as you're creeping away,
I wonder if you can see.

As you light the candle, you light the candle.
I go out of my way as you light the candle.

Just as there are four corners on my bed,
There are four sweet angels as my head.
Bless you Mathew, Mark, Luke and John.
Bless this bed that I am weeping on.

And you ain't ever been saved.
And you ain't ever been free.
And just as Elvis was a carpenter,
The world is waiting for me.

As you light the candle, you light the candle.
Immaculately concieved as you light the candle.

In the garden of Eden,
The shame, the tears are rolling down your face.
In the garden of Boredom,
The snake he sends you to another place.

As you light the candle, you light the candle.
I go out of my way as you light the candle.
