Ethereal Counterbalance
One

INSIDE OUT
Round & round like a sub-machine
I felt mixed-up when I shouldn't have been
Head went spinning like a roundabout
Back-to-front and inside-out

Now I'm feeling mighty fine
All I Needed was a sign.....
TIME & TIDE WILL TELL IN SILENT MOTION
HOW ALL THINGS THAT DWELL UNITE & BLEND
ALL HARMONY & ORDER OUT OF CHAOS FORMED
NO LIMITS & NO BORDERS
NO BEGINNING(S) & NO END(S)

Life is like a spinning wheel
All depends on how you feel
How d'you feel, how d'you feel?
Like a roundabout?
Back-to-front & inside-out?

ROOTS
My roots are in the countryside
of England in the summertime
of England in the summertime

Bungalows like dentures in the mouth of town
scream "Hi de hi" to sweet decay
"Goodbye" to fields and woods and streams
I'm not afraid to say they are learning how to crawl
Another mile of urban sprawl and getting nearer,
and nearer everyday

TYRANNY OF DISTANCE
The tyranny of distance is conquered in my car
You came at my insistence & now we've come too far
To turn back now (No, there ain't no turning back)

The tyranny of distance had me eating meat
Took all my resistance left me feeling beat
Knocked me off my feet

And there ain't no turning back
No there ain't no turning back now
Let's go home, let's go home babe
Nowhere is too far

SUNNY SPELL
Are you going to leave me here to rust?
To spontaneously combust?
I thought I could trust you
It really does just go to show
Ooh, but I KNOW you, you are my sunny spell
You ARE, you ARE, don't I know you? Yes! !
Shine on, shine on me

HOLY SMOKE
I won't be your diplomat
Tell you this when I mean that
Coz I ain't feeling none too well
Reputation shot to hell
I'm fucked and phased and over-ripe
Like the video of my life's been wiped

But it's alright now I'm on my feet
And I can hear and feel the beat
I breathe the air and feel the light
And here tonight I KNOW I'm right

AT THE OASIS
From the early morning mist there came a muffled sound
Something that the sun had kissed before it reached the ground
At the oasis

But the hour was yet too dark for me to rightly see
Although the flame was dimly sparked it seemed to beckon me
Towards the oasis

But a noise came from behind me and I turned around
Another light there, someone else there must have heard the sound
At the oasis At the oasis
We are at the oasis

KIND MIND
I'm your painted picture
Hear me call your name
Fit this painted picture
In your tainted frame

Surround me, leave yourself behind
But know me, know my kind

Saw your face delighted
By a passing car
Now slanting bars are righted
Tell me where you are

Surround me, let your thoughts unwind
But know me, know my mind
Swing your painted lanterns
I see your distant light
I can see your lanterns
Coming through the night

Surround me, tell me what you find
But know me, know my kind mind

DOCTOR'S POND
While you are on the green you are helpless
In the churchyard you are already gone
From the wreck you are drawn like a magnet
To the depths of Doctor's Pond
Doctor's Pond, Doctor's Pond, yeah

And the things that are gone forever
May be waiting in the valley of time
Nothing is, nothing is gone forever
If it's not on the surface then it's
Buried underneath the slime

Go ahead, go ahead, go ahead, go ahead and dredge it
Don't be afraid of the things that are gone
If your door of perception won't stay open (I tell ya') then WEDGE IT
And you will find all the things you've lost in Doctor's Pond
Yeah, go ahead, go ahead, go ahead, go ahead and dredge it
