Track Name: Lighthouses LIVE at Sunshine single launch, Bar Medusa, Wellington
I know what you're here for
The wisdom of the traveller in blazing sunsets
But you won't find it here no
You won't find it now if you don't know what it is yet

And I'll tell you how, I'll tell you how to live
Without fear of the past or the future
And I'll tell you now, I'll tell you now
To live without scars is to paint with water

And I will be your friend, and I will take my time
Tell you all the things that you shouldn't have to hide
And I will be your friend, and I will take my time

I can see by the lighthouse
All of the regrets and the scars that are mine
I can see by the lighthouse
Out across the sea, for what feels like the last time
I can see by the lighthouse
To live without scars is to paint with water
I can see by the lighthouse
Hold onto your regrets, they're what make us who we are

The sex that I paid for
Sometimes you have to cross the line to know where it is now
And the scars that I made myself
Sometimes you have to draw a map if nobody else will

And I'll tell you how, I'll tell you how to live
Take your youth and please never waste it
'Cos all I have to offer you now are my scars, and the view across the Atlantic

And I will be your friend, and I will take my time
Tell you all the things that you shouldn't have to hide
And I will be your friend, and I will take my time

I can see by the lighthouse
All of the regrets and the scars that are mine
I can see by the lighthouse
Out across the sea, for what feels like the last time
I can see by the lighthouse
To live without scars is to paint with water
I can see by the lighthouse
Hold onto your regrets, and the crazy times we've had
Track Name: When Robots Cure Cancer, We'll Talk LIVE at Sunshine single launch, Bar Medusa, Wellington
Welcome to the future
There's less astronauts than I thought there would be
Surrounded by computers
It's hardly heaven but at least it's not Soylent Green

I'm in love with the Hadron Collider
Geeks in search of the universe
But neither gods nor particles will do anything for the kids of the Third World

I want it all, and I want it all, and I want it
I'm waiting for the Rapture
Spirit adaptors, and velociraptors
Somehow I don't think the future's what we though it was

When robots cure cancer, then we'll talk
When England's not afraid of the poor

I will not be afraid, no I will not be swayed
I will not bee ashamed, to call the demon by its name

A wise woman once said to me, there is no fate but what we make
So until there's T-1000s in oncology, I'll still be here, I'll still be awake

When I look around, when I look around I don't see a meritocracy
Just mediocrity
And it's a shame, it's a shame, it's a shame
That everything regal isn't strictly illegal

I want it all, and I want it all, and I want it
I'm waiting for the Rapture
Spirit adaptors, and velociraptors
Somehow I don't think the future's what we though it was

When robots cure cancer, then we'll talk
When America's not afraid of dinosaurs

I will not be afraid, no I will not be swayed
I will not bee ashamed, to call the demon by its name
Track Name: Animals LIVE at Sunshine single launch, Bar Medusa, Wellington
By the lion enclosure, I wanna expose ya
I wanna get closer, before your life will be over
Just remember that it's

It's in na-na-nee-na-na
It's in na-na-nee-na-na...

It's inevitable, one day they'll have us up against the wall
It's inevitable, one day the animals reject their names

They've had enough today
They wanna live with their own names
They're on the streets today

By the elephant enclosure, they're ferocious and older
They're angry and they remember, all the days of your slaughter
Just remember that it's!

It's in na-na-nee-na-na
It's in na-na-nee-na-na...

It's inevitable, one day they'll have us up against the wall
It's inevitable, one day the animals reject their names

They've had enough today
They wanna live with their own names
They're on the streets today
Track Name: The Hype Of Yesteryear LIVE at Sunshine single lauch, Bar Medusa, Wellington
The world’s just a corporate freak show, I make my way to the exit
But every day they find another way to push it in my face, make me accept it

I’m not awake now, I’m just living in the past

And I sail away on it now, the hype of yesteryear
And I live my life by it now, all those forgotten years

The world’s just a boring freak show, I make my way to the exit
But every day they find another way to push it in my face so I never forget it

I’m not awake now, I’m just living in the past

And I sail away on it now, the hype of yesteryear
And I live my life by it now, all those forgotten years

Harry Potter fucking Katie Price
Teenage vampire films for all your life
You sell more product if you lie, you get an Oscar if you die
Oh oh, well these are the laws of hype

The junk of today is forgotten tomorrow
This is the hype of yesteryear
Track Name: Don't Call Me Baby (Madison Avenue cover) LIVE at Sunshine single launch, Bar Medusa, Wellington
You and me, we have an opportunity
And we could make it something really cool
But you, you think I'm not that kind of girl
I'm here to tell you baby, I know how to rock your world

Don't think that I'm not strong
I'm the one to take you on
Don't underestimate me boy
I'll make you sorry you were born
You don't know me
The way you really should
You sure misunderstood

Don't call me baby
You got some nerve, and baby that'll never do
You know I don't belong t o you
It's time you knew I'm not your baby
I belong to me, so
Don't call me baby

Behind my smile is my IQ
I must admit, this does not sit, with the likes of you
You're really sweet
Mmm, you're really nice
But didn't mama ever tell you not to play with fire?

Don't think that I'm not strong
I'm the one to take you on
Don't underestimate me boy
I'll make you sorry you were born
You don't know me
The way you really should
You sure misunderstood

Don't call me baby
You got some nerve, and baby that'll never do
You know I don't belong t o you
It's time you knew I'm not your baby
I belong to me, so
Don't call me baby
Track Name: Shark In A Goldfish Bowl LIVE at Sunshine single launch, Bar Medusa, Wellington
I don't care what you say, I don't care what you say
I don't care if you just swim swim away
I don't care what you say, I don't care what you say

I'm a shark in a goldfish bowl
I get the same views
And I don't know what to do
I'm a shark in a goldfish bowl
I get the same views
But I'm coming on back for this one now
I'm a shark in a goldfish bowl
I get the same views
And I don't know what to do
I'm a shark in a goldfish bowl
And I hate all those views, all those backward views

I don't care what you say, I don't care what you say
I don't care if you just swim swim away
I don't care what you say, I don't care what you say

I'm a shark in a goldfish bowl
I get the same views
And I don't know what to do
I'm a shark in a goldfish bowl
I get the same views
But I'm coming on back for this one now
I'm a shark in a goldfish bowl
I get the same views
And I don't know what to do
I'm a shark in a goldfish bowl
And I hate all those views, all those backward views

And I will burn this goldfish bowl down
I will burn this goldfish bowl down
I will burn this goldfish bowl down goldfish bowl down
Track Name: The Future LIVE at Sunshine single launch, Bar Medusa, Wellington
In the future, nobody is older
In the future, everybody always looks young
In the future, everybody's hot forever
In the future, everybody's song gets sung

Tell me why, nothing ever turns out like we write, in space age or sci-fi
Tell me why, we all think it's gonna be fine

We could like in a world where people take video with their eyes
But we might find that we would never have the time
To be free, to be free
The future's what you want it to be
The future's what you want it to be

In the future, our energy comes from water
In the future, everybody lives on the moon
In the future, there's shiny robots that cure cancer
But I don't think, the future's any time too soon

Tell me why, nothing ever turns out like we write, it's the future but not quite
There's no dolphins who travel through time

We could like in a world where people take video with their eyes
But we might find that we would never have the time
To be free, to be free
The future's what you want it to be
The future's what you want it to be

Take your science and technology, is that what you want it to be
Superstition and plastic surgery, is that what you want it to be
Success at any cost, or do you want to live a life with balance
Time accepts no apologies

The future's what you want it to be
The future's what you want it to be
Track Name: Lighten Up, No Thanks LIVE at Sunshine single launch
Have you ever had a hundred thoughts in a second?
Are you living life the way you'd reckoned?
You walk around with that smile on your face
I want to say that your bubble is a hollow sham

Lighten up, no thanks
Lighten up, no thanks
You say I think too much, well you don't fucking think enough
I'm happy as I am, so lighten up no thanks

Have you ever had a hundred thoughts in second?
I don't think so
Are you living life the way you'd reckoned?
Someone would have told you so
And you've still got that stupid smile on your face
I wanna say that your bubble is a hollow sham

Lighten up, no thanks
I'll tell you where to go
Lighten up, no thanks
I don't think so
You say I think too much, well you don't fucking think enough
I'm happy as I am, so lighten up no thanks

You're the happiness fascists, you're telling people what to think
But what the hell would you know, you're no good at being a cynic
And I shouldn't have to tell you all the things that I'm aware about
I'm living life, because I know the things I really care about
One more time!
One more time
One more time, lighten up no thanks
Track Name: Boy With X-Ray Eyes LIVE at Sunshine single launch, Bar Medusa, Wellington
I’m the boy with x-ray eyes
You won’t believe what I’ve seen, in your mind
And wherever you’ve been
Despite what you say I’ve seen behind the face you put on today

What you wanted is not what you needed
You saw what they offered, and you told them to keep it
What you wanted is not what you needed
All you needed was some time

I will be there, to save you from the waves, and take back all the things you heard the monsters say
I will be there, each and every day

Look into the kraken’s eyes, she said
Tell me what do you see?
I see it’s mind, and wherever it’s been
There’s nothing you can say to save society from it’s early grave

What you wanted is not what you needed
I saw what they offered, and I told them they could keep it
What you wanted is not what you needed
All you needed was some time

I will be there, to save you from the waves
And take back all the things you heard the monsters say
I will be there, each and every day
And I’ll give you hope and time so you don’t have to pray
I will be there, and I’ll see you when the waves
Crash down on all the things you thought you had to say
I will be there, each and every day
Track Name: Sunshine LIVE at Sunshine single launch, Bar Medusa, Wellington
I was born between the horizon
And the sky, with no-one to tell me why
She said, if we're unacceptable anywhere
We're unacceptable everywhere
So she ran, she ran, she ran anywhere

The tallest buildings in the world will give us all shadows that we need to waste our days
And the asteroid had nothing on your war on terror-dactyls when you take the sun away

Whoah-oh-oh, oh-oh, oh oh-oh
Whoah-oh-oh, oh-oh, oh oh-oh

And I'll spend my life chasing the sunshine
And I'll spend my time defending the last of the sky

I can't deny that I've got no answer
For the jaded communities, airfix democracies
While we're trying to grow crops 8 miles high
She said, if we're unacceptable anywhere
We're unacceptable everywhere
So she ran, she ran, she ran and she jumped from

The tallest buildings in the world will give us all shadows that we need to waste our days
And the asteroid had nothing on your war on terror-dactyls when you take the sun away

Whoah-oh-oh, oh-oh, oh oh-oh
Whoah-oh-oh, oh-oh, oh oh-oh

And I'll spend my life chasing the sunshine
And I'll spend my time defending the last of the sky
And I'll spend my time defending the last of the sky

Take the sun away, and we'll die inside
Take the sun away
Track Name: I Believe In Dinosaurs LIVE at Sunshine single launch, Bar Medusa, Wellington
I believe, I believe, I believe in dinosaurs
Just like all good kids do
Archaeopteryx, Iguanodon, Tyrannosaurs…
And don’t forget the Pterodactyl

I believe, I believe, I believe in dinosaurs
Just like all good kids do
I believe in astronomy, sociology and more
But they’re not as fun as

What you find, what you find
When you digging in the rock face
What you find, what you find

I believe, I believe, I believe in dinosaurs
I believe, I believe, I believe in dinosaurs

What do you find, when you go digging in the rock face for what they left behind
What do you find, when you go digging in the rock face to see what they left behind

I believe, I believe, I believe in dinosaurs
And all the things they teach us
Don’t grow too big, and don’t get hit by meteors
Or you’ll become extinct too

No love no love for the haters
They know nothing about the Cretaceous
It’s plain to see, it’s obvious to you and me,
They’re the ancestors of alligators

What you find, what you find
When you digging in the rock face
What you find, what you find

I believe, I believe, I believe in dinosaurs
I believe, I believe, I believe in dinosaurs

What do you find, when you go digging in the rock face for what they left behind
What do you find, when you go digging in the rock face to see what they left behind

And I don’t believe in aliens, in witchcraft or in sorcery
I’ve got no time for the Loch Ness monster, the pope of scientology
And I don’t believe in the yeti or aromatherapy
But I believe in dinosaurs
