Lyrics

Mr Mischief

Written By: Ed Bentley


Mr Mischief's back with the same old attack. Mr Mischief's come with the same old gun.

He jumps over trees, he brings you down, flies the sees where he drills the ground. He'll bring you down. When he finally sees what he's doing to please only kills, it brings you down - Mr Mischief's back with the same old attach.

Life tastes so good today, you must stop bringing us down into the unknown
... We're finding a home.

Golden Slumbers

Written By: Ed Bentley

Policeman moved on the beggar from the bench, an old man in chains, he say:

"I can't shut my eyes at night".

He used to watch for the pennies from the ledge. Always the same, he'd say:

"I can't shut my eyes tonight, no one believes when you say 'no one believes' - though I've shown you the reason why if you listen you'll notice me, if you listen you'll see renewed signs of life. If you listen you'll notice me".

She said that silver is hollowest of all - all over sold - now she flies off the walls again. If it's less she will tell him, though it hurts, it's one and the same and she can't shut her eyes at night...

"I can't shut my eyes at night, none believes when you say 'no one believes', though I've shown you the reason why if you listen you'll notice me, if you listen you'll see renewed signs of life. If you listen you'll notice me"

No more golden slumbers.

Goldrush

Written By: Ed Bentley

This town's left me weak, I feel stripped of powers and strapped in seat - I'm going on a goldrush.

This town's let me down, it's fallen asleep, it seems stuck in the ground - so I'm going on a goldrush.

I just want to learn, I just want to love, but no no she said cheat it, beat it. I just want to leave, I just want to breath new music into these ears, but no cos this town's left me weak, I feel stripped of powers and strapped in seat - I'm going on a goldrush.

This town's let me down, I've fallen asleep, I feel stuck in the ground - so I'm going on a goldrush and I'll dance alone, dance alone.
