Track Name: Love Princess
I recall the day I came to stay in my beloved Ehime.
There wasn't much I could say to express my confusion
At least in Japanese anyway.

I was struck by the smell of the staff-room and the dog-like procedure involved
when I went to the bathroom. It was a struggle back then.

But now I`ve learned to use the toilet,
And now after failing niikyu I can speak nihongo, or whatever they call it.
Now I can ask a girl for her phone number
And after 12 long months I'm pretty bloody good at ikebana.

Repeat Opening verse*

When I arrived in my town, they said there's a super(market)
down the road, and it's not too far,
It took two hours by train and another hour by car.
I made a nice group of friends in my town,
They were a very friendly bunch,
But they didn't get let out of the old peoples home, that much.

But now I've made friends my own age,
And now I can read a menu, well at least the first page.
And now I understand that people don't mean to be dicks,
When they say with a patronizing smile, that I'm good with chopsticks.

I have grown to love the love princess,
I just wish I had a little more success with the opposite sex,
or if I was gay then with the same sex.
Track Name: Concerned with You
If I punched myself every time I dreamt about us, well then I`d be dead. It`s funny you should mention that subject, the thought of punching you instead, get out of my head.

I don`t know how many times I`ve told you.
Is it the sound of no that you don`t quite understand.
I don`t know, well actually, I think so.

Oh it's hard. Oh it's quite hard when your on your own and it makes me sad when I`m on my own.

I cried myself to sleep last night, cause you turned me down on my birthday night. All the boys were there and I watched them stare with glee.

It was a particularly bad time to be me. Not a very pleasant time you`ll agree. A particularly bad time to be me.

I cried myself to sleep last night, the bouncer turned me down on an oldies night. A forty minute queue, the passport wouldn't do, and that was it as far as I was concerned with you. Now what can I do? Why don't you come back home with me and let's make a minor mistake. It's true what they say, a little bit of bad luck in your love life can educate.
Track Name: Hot Water Hills
Any colour you want, any style you want is there, it`s there for you. Even if you want red, even if you want blue. Pink, yellow or emerald green, the colours of your favourite team are waiting there for you. Running up hills to find a better view. Up past the park and the animal zoo, lions tigers and queens and kings, past a pair of arching swings waiting there for you. I can see your face from here, sometimes
when the weather`s clear. I can hear my heart up here. It goes badabababadam. There are ghosts around here. Don`t worry. Don`t be scared. Cause not long ago, they were much like you, and even now they`re much the same, taking shelter from the rain, waiting for the view. And I can see your face from here, sometimes before you disappear.
Track Name: True Romantics
Hope won't pull me through. Who can help the state of things? Who's more cruel? Maybe it's sad, but it's true. Every time I'm thinking it's you. On the outside looking in, we both know, every time I'm thinking it`s cold. Why would you feel so sad and lonely? We both know. Give it to me. Why won't you give it to me? True romantics on the floor. It's easy to loose hope. Even easier to get depressed but I will never let you go. No I'll never let you go.
Track Name: Guilt
What's the point in keeping cool when I know you're treating me like a fool?
You come in drunk and stay out late creeping in hoping I'm not awake.
For proof I don't care when I can see there's ...

Guilt crawling all over your face now.
Guilt, crawling all over your face now.

Our friend's must feel compromised not knowing whether to reveal your lies. It's hard to cover up your tracks when you leave so many there's no way back.

For proof I don't care when I can see there's ...

Guilt crawling all over your face now.
Guilt crawling all over your face now.

Tell me there's no bead of sweat crawling down your lower back. And you can start to crawl up through the hole I watched your dig for you(rself).
Track Name: Whales Can Sing
Whales can sing and so can my mother
Dolphins can bleed and so can my lover
Lions can roar and so can her father
Shortly before I propose to his daughter

A fisherman stands before the red water
A dolphin can smile and so can his daughter
Did you know that these things can talk to each other?
A knife in the neck and lambs to the slaughter

A baby feels safe in the arms of its mother
A heartbeat can stop at the cries of another
A dolphin will smile in the depths of red water
While a fisherman sings in the bar ladida ladida

A lover can lead you to far places
A dolphin can swim and be gone with no traces
Did you ever take a walk down to that corner?
You might be surprised at what you discover in the cove.
Track Name: London 2009
ne plus one equals two. That's one less than me, The King and you. Something's gotta give. I just want to live a simple life with the minimum of fuss. It would be nice if it was the two of us. One plus one equals two. Maths is not my strong point but I know that much is true. Something's gotta give. I just want to live a simple life with the minimum of fuss. It would be nice if it was the both of us. That would be nice. That would be cool. I had a great idea last night in bed. Go and fetch a sword then come with me instead. Now that's a great idea - smart and chrystal clear. The best I've had in years. Wouldn't you agree that that's a great idea. Such a great idea. A fucking great idea.

Great ideas can make you famous.
Great ideas can make you rich.
But why would you waste your time on that when you can blow your mind on this?
Great ideas can make you nervous.
Great ideas can make you blush.
If The King knows a great idea from a good one then he'll leave the rest to us.
Great ideas can end in tears.
Track Name: Superstar of the Surrounding Area
When we first started I was excited about having sex
I never realized that a relationship could make me so depressed.

We've had our problems from the start, which I've tried my best to solve, but my life revolves around me and around me it will revolve. I'm a superstar in the surrounding area.

When we first started I was excited about touching your breasts, but I never realized that companionship could make me so depressed. I thought I loved you but I never loved you I only made love to you. But I never loved you more then on the day that I dumped you.

We've had our problems from the start, which I've tried my best to solve, but my life revolves around me and around me it will revolve. I'm a superstar in the surrounding area.

The world is a bad place.
I'm pretty sure it's true.
Don't try to tell me any different
I've heard it all before from you.

And my heart is a sad place.
I've never been inside.
But I can feel it throbbing
When I'm by your side.
Track Name: Ice Age
The ice age is coming
Cold shouldering
Are you read for some ignoring?
Cause I'm still the master ...

Call me someone in love with you
And I won't know what you mean
I'm the person who comes to you
Whenever I'm run down and in need

The ice age is coming
What will you do?
I won't be there back with you
Cause I'm still the master ...

Call me someone in love with you
And I won't know what you mean
I'm the person who comes to you
Whenever I'm run down and in need

With your hair long you could pass for my ex
And with me quite drunk you could pass any test
Track Name: Rooftops
Rooftops

I awoke on Sunday morning, felt a change inside of me.
I looked out my bedroom window, mist as far as I could see.

You're all in my presence. I'm glad you could be.
I learnt a new lesson; She's in love with me.

So go shout it from the rooftops.
Go shout it to the sea.
Go shout it from the rooftops.
She's in love with me.

Smoke rises from chimneyed houses
Three or four in every street
I've got some news for my neighbour,
Don't feel I can be discreet.

You're all in my presence. I'm glad you could be.
I learnt a new lesson; She's in love with me

And I feel a little wonder
Oh, I feel a little wonder
Track Name: People are Different
Stay with me until it's over,
Wait a while and lay your head upon my shoulder.
What a shame we're not here for longer,
What a shame.
Rest with me until it's over.
It will all blow over when we're a little bit older.

People are different but that's what makes us all the same.
Some people have bad points but that's what makes us all the same.
Oh but there's one - She's not quite the same though.
Oh but there's someone and she is on a different plane.

People are fighting all the time.
It's the adult way but it shows your age.
Oh but there's one - She's not quite the same though.
Oh but there's someone and she is on a different plane.

I'm going to make them.
I'm going to keep them.
I don't want to lose them.
I'm going to sew them and then I'm going to reap them.
Oh but there's one - She's not quite the same though.
Oh but there's someone and she is on a different plane.
Track Name: Katsudon
It feels nice when you're lying in my bed but it feels strange in my head. It feels good when cook me katsudon. It tastes real nice but it makes me contemplate my life and your life.

It feels good when you're watching dvds. All that romantic comedy, it's not quite me. But it feels good when you cook me katsudon. It tastes real nice but it makes me contemplate my life and your life.
