Track Name: Weird Kids
Weird Kids

Music by Reckoning, lyrics Seamus.

You must be new,
I do not think that I have seen you here before.
Let me give you some advice before they kick you out the door.
You're gonna meet some weird kids tonight.
You're gonna meet some weird kids tonight.
But it's alright, you'll do fine,
Just keep your butt in line.
Weird kids tonight...

Look up at the sky,
Can you see any stars?
Of course you can't,
You can't see stars in seedy old bars.
You're gonna meet some weird kids tonight.
You're gonna meet some weird kids tonight.
But it's alright, you'll do fine,
Just keep your butt in line.
Weird kids tonight...

Oh my God!
I cannot believe my eyes!
Oh my God,
I cannot believe my eyes!
It's all too big,
It's all too heavy,
It's all too weird for me,
Too fucked up for me.
It's all too big,
It's all too heavy,
It's all too strange for brain,
Weird kids, kids, kids!

(I feel nothing but love but you're all a bunch of really weird kids.)
Track Name: I Am Stone
I Am Stone

Music by Reckoning (words Seamus)

I said goodbye to the sun.
I said goodbye to the ones who are young,
And then I grew old overnight.

I smashed my face on the floor.
I didn't feel a thing so I smashed it some more,
And then I grew old overnight.

'Cos I need a reason to live.
But I have died.
I am stone.

The mob are coming, they're going to get me,
Saying "Hey boy, you're gonna be swinging from the Dead Tree".
So I hid in that church.
I saw you kneeling, I think you were praying.
I crept a little closer to hear what you were saying,
And then I grew old overnight...
Track Name: Armadillo
Armadillo

Music by Reckoning (words Seamus)

You can do what you like.
You can dress yourself up.
Backwards fairy-boy on a bike,
It'll never, ever be enough.

Armadillo tonight,
Armadillo tonight,
No, Dear Mother, I am not alright,
I'm making love to my pillow tonight.

You can do what you can,
Choo-choo train on the track.
You can kinda sorta hold her hand,
But she'll never, ever hold it back.
Track Name: Skylab
Skylab

Music by Reckoning (words Seamus)

It feels like water on your skin.
It feels like heaven when you sin.
It feels like screaming out for more,
When she's already heading for the door.

It feels like sugar,
It feels like pain,
It feels like sex,
And it's screaming at me.

It feels like winter.
It feels like rain.
It feels like death,
And you'd better believe...

It feels like dying in his arms.
It feels like an endless sea,
Like an endless white car.

It feels like love, love love love,
Bitter-sweet love, sugar sweet love.
But I don;t care what you call it...

Just give it to me.

Oh feathered bird, how can you sing,
When I am having such a terrible spring?
Oh feathered bird, how can you fly,
When I am having such a terrible life?
Track Name: Gravity
Gravity

Music by Reckoning (words Seamus)

Underneath the apple tree,
My grandmother lies.
While we make jokes about gravity,
She gives me plastic eyes.

On the floor of a room in a party house,
Cry on the shoulder of your best friend.
Wake up tomorrow, uncomfortable, on a couch.
I fall in love again.

Underneath that apple tree,
I see through plastic eyes.
And I want it all - need everything,
My body is alive.
My body is alive - and it rules my mind.

Underneath the apple tree,
My grandmother dies - she dies,
While I hang around to eat the fruit.
My body is alive.
