we’re all talking about weather in America And the state of tv we’re washing in dirty water we never flaunt our assets or our business schemes Take 15 grams of Quinine with a bottle of Sal Volatile Smoke Chesterfield non-filters and then jump in the sea when Dr Suess is painting in the sky you might catch a glimpse if you raise your focus somewhat higher
2.
she talks to him long distance on the big red telephone She’s hoping she will plead with her to come home You’re no flower anymore Is this deadly nightshade or lily of the valley Don’t walk out so far downtown Hindley St I’ve always found it dangerous out there You’re no flower anymore you’re no flower.
3.
Delegate 05:08
Here come the bootmen and the rabbit clowns Don’t look them in the eye In this town called Delegate They’ll do you every time go and close the blinds and lock the doors those outsiders have thieving paws the flannel men and short boys Come marching into town you’ll fit right in with your miserable heart your flag tattooed to your chest all tight woe begone the people who have lost the most are the ones who hate the least The poor souls who have pawned their legs have got the cleanest feet you’ll fit right in with your miserable heart
4.
On the shortest day of the year The sun it goes early it comes at all Treasure it all The old men stay inside ,don’t leave their rooms they’ve got no entertainment they’ve stuff all to do on the shortest day of the year
5.
Is that your god Smacking heads on trade routes Smacking heads on Persian ground dervishes come swirling in, round and round there are Hollow men hiding mongst the rubble parks & caves the Red Cross issue fits and tin foil in a blue smoke haze there’s no light, no sun, no trees, but then this is how it feels just like you’re Stoned in Kabul Enter inside your neighbours mind And suffer him to know your self When Kustom conflicts with trucks and guns and mules and holiness Like you’re Stoned in Kabul
6.
You got a night lamp, a kero night lamp It shines through heartache it makes you feel numb North to the islands, The black islands It’s Mandated Territory for god sake Australia just look at the map Your nerves are shaky, you’re smoking chain style You start drinking early and keep going all day They’ll Doom you these black islands doom you Doom you if they can
7.
Chatter 03:11
Lets walk round in circles back to my house late at night At night Please don’t listen to a word they say making no sense don’t want to start a fight And the way they all talk the way they all chatter It’s a case of we don’t mind and they don’t matter at all
8.
Old Lovers 04:13
We’re not fruit to skin and toss away…. Your old lovers Never leave the room Count them two by two Long after you’re gone They’ll trouble you If you keep holding on

Treason 04:40
Place sacred words side by side Should you seek comfort, hide You’ll find your way eventually Come climb aboard sail with me The brave ones fled on a pea green boat Set fire to them, stone them, see if they’ll float We could avoid this catastrophe, If you come dream a little dream with me Has it all come to treason
11.
If desperate we’d call up the Navy of Slovenia The one boat flotilla could set us all free In the town square Sunday evening saw liberation screaming and matriarchs believing and old boys talking politics in pairs I feel like going away To the Flatlands..I think they’ve got it made
