Lyrics

What Da Live!?

Written By: Goold/Minogue/Kingman/Gardener-Kane

Whats the Use in Knowing,
Floating deep in the ocean,
Flying on the tip of a mountain,
Whats the use in trying again.

Boot the pc, Jar b4 noon
log on off, tune in tune out,
Beat on freakout
frank but short, reset the 505
Beat the method the phrase, jar b4 noon...noon...noon

Whats the Use in Knowing,
Floating deep in the ocean,
Flying on the tip of a mountain,
Whats the use in trying again.

Dinnertime keep not forgeting keepin it bangin, keepin it swingin, slammin's a much better description.
Ohh, this is Klannin with a Capital P
Keepin it swingin, slammin
keep not fogetting....
Banging!

Whats the Use in Knowing,
Floating deep in the ocean,
Flying on the tip of a mountain,
Whats the use in trying again.

Question

Written By: Goold/Kelly/Gardener-Kane/Harnath

Lookin Prime, Steppin out of date primate, demonstrate, dont be late to release tucked away in the back of your minds ability supervagility an compatability figurtively speakin an xample would ya like a sample a 3 dimensional mimeograph of our culture canacultural hipsway...aye

one day we'll find
true piece of mind
to satisfy the questions burnin in our mind
one day we'll find
true piece of mind
to satisfy .....the questions
one day we'll find (one day)
true piece of mind (one day)
to satisfy the questions

questions run deep from travelling n feelin revealing free wheelin sippin dajarlining unearth some redeaming dreaming accross home (Australia) a place to stay a pad of your own
finding some where to fit in
full blown cyclone like tracy whickham only more chilling
not pillin for the xtc of movement but improvement box building groovement bloods r runnin beats are a groovin runners r jumpin dance floor thumpin

one day we'll find
true piece of mind
to satisfy the questions burnin in our mind
(one day) one day we'll find
true piece of mind
to satisfy the questions in our mind

Minds eye perception one personable not unreasonable seaonable but able caring sharing
not scaring not 2 demanding or foxin to play love all for the match not a hatch but a mismatch, not that i've got a skankerin to scratch snatch, a realisation that baby maybe a fresh take and a better place in time will surely ease my mind and surely yours peace for love or money make the walls fall down and tear this tie that binds

(one day) one day we'll find
true piece of mind
to satisfy the questions burnin in our mind
one day we'll find (one day)
true piece of mind (one day)
to satisfy the questions

are you satisfied

are you satisfied
