Lyrics: 

You
You walk on past
Your lips cut a smile on your face
Your scalding face
To the cage, to the cage
She was a beauty in a cage
Too, too high a price
To drink rotting wine from your hands
Your fearful hands
Get me to a doctor's I've been told
Someone's back in town
The chips are down
I just cut and blackout
I'm under Japanese influence
And my honour's at stake

The weather's grim ice on the cages
Me I'm Robin Hood and I puff on my cigarette
Panthers are steaming, stalking, screaming

If you don't stay tonight
I will take that plane tonight
I've nothing to lose
Nothing to gain
I'll kiss you in the rain
Kiss you in the rain
Kiss you in the rain
In the rain
Get me to the doctor

Get me off the streets (get some protection)
Get me on my feet (get some direction)
Hot air gets me into a blackout
Oh, get me off the streets
Get some protection
Oh get me on my feet
While the streets block off
Getting some skin exposure
To the blackout
Get me on my feet
Get me off the streets (get some protection)

Lyrics: 

The sons of the silent age
Stand on platforms blank looks and no books
Sit in back rows of city limits
Lay in bed coming and going on easy terms
The sons of the silent age
Pace their rooms like a cell's dimensions
Rise for a year or two then make war
Search through their one inch thoughts
Then decide it couldn't be done

chorus:
Baby I'll never let you go
All I see is all I know
Let's take another way down
(sons of sound and sons of sound)

Baby I'll never let you down
I can't stand another sound
Let's find another way in
(sons of sound and sons of sound)

The sons of the silent age
Listen to tracks by Sam Therapy and King Dice
The sons of the silent age
Pick up in bars but cry only once
The sons of the silent age
Make love only once but dream and dream
Don't walk just glide in and out of life
They never die just go to sleep one day

chorus:

Lyrics: 

I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing will drive them away
We can beat them just for one day
We can be Heroes just for one day

And you, you can be mean
And I, I’ll drink all the time
‘Cause we’re lovers and that is a fact
Yes we’re lovers and that is that

Though nothing will keep us together
We could steal time just for one day
We can be Heroes for ever and ever
What d’you say?

I, I wish you could swim
Like the dolphins, like dolphins can swim
Though nothing, nothing will keep us together
We can beat them for ever and ever
Oh we can be Heroes just for one day

I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing will drive them away
We can be Heroes just for one day
We can be us just for one day

I, I remember
Standing by the wall
The guns shot above our heads
And we kissed as though nothing could fall
And the shame was on the other side
Oh we can beat them for ever and ever
Then we can be Heroes just for one day

We can be Heroes
We can be Heroes
We can be Heroes
Just for one day
We can be Heroes

We’re nothing and nothing will help us
Maybe we’re lying then you better not stay
But we could be safer just for one day.

Lyrics: 

Joe the lion
Went to the bar
A couple of drinks
On the house and he said,
"Tell you who you are if you nail me to my car"
Boy
Thanks for hesitating
This is the kiss off
Boy
Thanks for hesitating
You'll never know the real story
Just a couple of dreams
You get up and sleep
You can buy God

It's Monday
You slither down the greasy pipe
So far so good no one saw you
Hobble over any freeway
You will be like your dreams tonight
You get up and sleep
You get up and sleep
Joe the lion
Made of iron

Joe the lion
Went to the bar
A couple of drinks
On the house
and he was
a fortuneteller he said
Nail me to my car
And I'll tell you who you are
Joe the lion YEAH YEAH
Went to the bar YEAH YEAH

A couple of dreams and he was
A fortuneteller he said
Nail me to my car tell you who you are

You get up and sleep
The wind blows on your cheek
The day laughs in your face
Guess you'll buy a gun
You'll buy it secondhand

You get up and sleep
Joe the lion made of iron
