Track Name: Ashes to ashes
Do you remember a guy that's been in such an early song?
I've heard a rumour from Ground Control, oh no, don't say it's true
They got a message from the Action Man,
I'm happy, hope you're happy too
I've loved all I've needed love, sordid details following

The shrieking of nothing is killing me,
just pictures of Jap girls in synthesis
And I ain't got no money and I ain't got no hair
But I'm hoping to kick but the planet is glowing

ASHES TO ASHES, FUNK TO FUNKY,
WE KNOW MAJOR TOM’S A JUNKY
STRUNG OUT IN HEAVEN’S HIGH,
HITTING AN ALL TIME LOW

Time and again I tell myself, I'll stay clean tonight
But the little green wheels are following me, oh no, not again
I'm stuck with a valuable friend, I'm happy, hope you're happy too
One flash of light but no smoking pistol

I've never done good things, I've never done bad things
I never did anything out of the blue
I want an axe to brake the ice, I want to come down right now

CHORUS

My mama said to get things done,
you'd better not mess with Major Tom
My mama said to get things done,
you'd better not mess with Major Tom
My mama said to get things done,
you'd better not mess with Major Tom
My mama said to get things done,
you'd better not mess with Major Tom
Track Name: Legata a un granello di sabbia
Mi vuoi lasciare, e tu vuoi fuggire,
ma sola al buio tu poi mi chiamerai

Ti voglio cullare, cullare, posandoti su un'onda del mare, del mare
Legandoti a un granello di sabbia,
così tu nella nebbia più fuggir non potrai
E accanto a me tu resterai ai iai iai iai

Ti voglio tenere, tenere, legata con un raggio di sole, di sole
Così col suo calore la nebbia svanirà
E il tuo cuore riscaldarsi potrà,
e mai più freddo sentirai

Ma tu, tu fuggirai e nella notte ti perderai
e sola, sola, sola nel buio mi chiamerai... ai iai iai iai

(Verse 1)

Così col suo calore la nebbia svanirà
E il tuo cuore riscaldarsi potrà,
e mai più freddo sentirai

Ti voglio cullare, cullare, posandoti su un'onda del mare, del mare
Legandoti a un granello di sabbia,
così tu nella nebbia più fuggir non potrai
E accanto a me tu resterai ai iai iai iai
Track Name: Magnesia
Di lo que te ocurre, vamos di lo que te aburre
es magnesia quien te ha dicho que nos van a separar
tú no te preocupes, yo seré quien te acurruque
quien te compre las estrellas, quien te bese bajo el mar

Y si alguien te dijera que lo nuestro se ha acabado
que no queda ni el resquicio del precioso amor robado
que magnesia lo ha escondido, que magnesia lo ha guardado
en un mundo de recuerdos, en un mundo de pasado

Y no quiero que tú pienses que lo nuestro es diferente
lo que quiero es dejarte un abrazo para siempre
un suspiro, una mirada, un saludo, una palabra
un adiós, una sonrisa un final, hasta la vista

y no quiero que tú pienses que lo nuestro es diferente
lo que quiero es dejarte un abrazo para siempre
un suspiro, una mirada, un saludo, una palabra
Ahhhhh...
Track Name: Swinging London
I read your manifestoes and your strange religious tracts
You took me to your library and kissed me in the stacks

PLANET CRASH, THE WORLD GOES NOVA,
SUN EXPLODES, ALL GOES BLACK
YOU WENT OFF SWINGING LONDON
AND FORGOT TO COME BACK

You couldn't grok my racecar but you dug the roadside blur
You weren't into my airplane but you loved the whirling world

(CHORUS x 2)
Track Name: Soldier girl
I found my
she’s so far
she makes my head

I FOUND MY SOLDIER GIRL
SHE’S SO FAR AWAY
SHE MAKES MY HEAD SPIN AROUND

I FOUND MY SOLDIER GIRL
SHE’S SO FAR AWAY
SHE MAKES MY HEAD SPIN AROUND
(x2)
Track Name: Slow
Well, you know it's up to you, sugar think what we could do
Can I have a question,
I'll make you smile, smile, smile, smile, smile

Sugar sugar you're up to my lips, licking over everything I miss
And I got no reason,
just a slow, slow, slow, slow, suck

Feeling bad, feeling good, feeling like I never could
Lick, lick, lick and suck, suck, suck,
I want it slow, slow, slow, slow

Sugar sugar you're up to my lips, place my head upon your hips
And I got no reason,
you make me smile, smile, smile, smile

Well what the hell, we're all the same,
you got what I need, so don't play no games
Sugar think what we could do,
I'll make you smile, smile, smile, smile through

You got the rush I don't feel no shame,
on top of me you know while I don't know your name
And we got no reason,
just a slow, slow, slow, slow, suck
Track Name: You can hide your love forever
He has a picture of her underneath the poster
So he knows that she, she is there, even though she is not
And the tapes were a way to her heart
She’s something he can hold on to, something good and hopeful.

I'll never get to kiss her fingers, I'll never get to hold her coat
I'll never get to turn the light off or sleep with her or even

And she makes up friends in literature,
she lived in France and Scotland
And she paints herself, a picture of what he'd look like now
Her cigarettes, her cold, cold hands, and a short dark hair
And she still loves you, don't you know? No, you never did know.

She thinks it would be better to see him through his letters
The music that he makes her, she knows it’s all about her.

AND YOU, YOU CAN HIDE,
YOU CAN HIDE YOUR LOVE FOREVER
YOU CAN HIDE, YOU CAN HIDE,
YOU CAN HIDE YOUR LOVE FOREVER (3)

I think that it is better to say oh how i loved her
Something good and strong, you can hold on forever

And one more time in the night I could remember your face (2)

(CHORUS)
Track Name: Amanecer
Caminando al amanecer
He visto al mundo nacer
La luna esconderse las nubes pasar
El despertar de una flor que está sedienta de sol

Entre ramas se filtra su luz
Va dando vida y color
Todo despierta la niebla se va
El árbol vuelve a crecer, la golondrina a volar

Pa pa pa pa pa pa papapaaaa
Pa pa pa pa pa papaaaaaa

Yo soy el campo, tú eres el sol
Me das la luz y el calor, siempre estarás junto a mí
Yo soy el campo, tú eres el sol
Me das la luz y el calor, siempre estarás junto a mí

Pa pa pa pa pa pa papapaaaa
Pa pa pa pa pa papaaaaaa
Yo soy el campo, tú eres el sol
Me das la luz y el calor, siempre estarás junto a mí
Track Name: Sheena is a punk rocker
Well they are all hopped up and ready to go, they’re ready to go now
they've got their surfboards and they’re going to the discotheque a go go

but she just couldn't stay, she had to break away
well, new york city really has it all, oh yeah, oh yeah

SHEENA IS A PUNK ROCKER, SHEENA IS A PUNK ROCKER,
SHEENA IS A PUNK ROCKER NOW
SHEENA IS A PUNK ROCKER, SHEENA IS A PUNK ROCKER,
SHEENA IS A PUNK ROCKER NOW

Well she's a punk, punk, a punk rocker - punk, punk, a punk rocker
punk, punk, a punk rocker - punk, punk, a punk rocker
Track Name: Estuve enamorado
Estuve enamorado de ti,
estuve enamorado de ti
pero ya no siento nada,
ni me inquieta tu mirada como ayer.

Estuve enamorado de ti,
estuve enamorado de ti
pero ya no siento nada,
ni me inquietan tus palabras como ayer.

Y PENSAR QUE UN DÍA TE QUISE
COMO A NADIE YO HE QUERIDO JAMÁS.
Y PENSAR QUE SIEMPRE TE DIJE
QUE POR NADA TE PODRÍA DEJAR.

Estuve enamorado de ti,
estuve enamorado de ti
pero quiero ser sincero,
de verdad que, que no te quiero como ayer.

Y PENSAR QUE UN DÍA TE QUISE
COMO A NADIE YO HE QUERIDO JAMÁS.
Y PENSAR QUE SIEMPRE TE DIJE
QUE POR NADA TE PODRÍA DEJAR.

Estuve enamorado de ti.
Track Name: Manic Monday
Six o'clock already, I was just in the middle of a dream
I was kissing Valentino by a crystal blue Italian stream
But I can't be late, 'cos then I guess I just won't get paid
These are the days when you wish your bed was already made

IT’S JUST ANOTHER MANIC MONDAY, OH-OH-OH
I WISH IT WAS SUNDAY, OH-OH-OH
'COS THAT’S MY FUN-DAY, OH-OH-OH
MY I DON’T HAVE TO RUN-DAY (*)
IT’S JUST ANOTHER MANIC MONDAY

Have to catch an early train, have to be to work by nine
And if I had an aeroplane, I still couldn't make it on time
'Cos it takes me so long just to figure out what I’m gonna wear
Blame it on the train, but the boss is already there

(CHORUS)

All of the nights, why did my lover have to pick last night to get down (last night last night)
Doesn't it matter that I have to feed the both of us,
employments down
He tells me in his bedroom voice
C'mon honey, let’s go make some noise
Time it goes so fast when you're having fun
Track Name: It's the end of the world as we know it (and I feel fine)
That's great, it starts with an earthquake,
birds and snakes, an aeroplane - Lenny Bruce is not afraid.

Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn,
world serves its own needs, don’t misserve your own needs.
Feed it up a knock, speed, grunt no, strength no.
Ladder structure clatter with fear of height, down height.

Wire in a fire represent the seven games
in a government for hire and a combat site

Left her wasn't coming in a hurry with the furies
breathing down-your-neck.
Team by team reporters baffled, trump, tethered crop.
Look at that low plane! Fine then.

Uh oh, overflow, population, common group, but it'll do.
Save yourself, serve yourself.
World serves its own needs, listen to your heart bleed.
Tell me with the rapture in the reverent (and the) right-right.
You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright light, feeling-pretty-psyched.

It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine

Six o'clock - TV hour. Don't get caught in foreign tower.
Slash and burn, return, listen to yourself churn.
Lock him in uniform and book burning, blood letting.
Every motive escalate. Automotive incinerate.
Light a candle, light a motive. Step down, step down.
Watch a heel crush, crush. Uh oh, this means
No fear - cavalier. Renegade and steer clear!
A tournament, a tournament, a tournament of lies.
Offer me solutions, offer me alternatives and I de-cli-ne

(CHORUS)
I feel fine
(CHORUS)

The other night I tripped a nice continental drift divide.
Mount Saint Edelite. Leonard Bernstein.
Leonid Brezhnev, Lenny Bruce and Lester Bangs.
Birthday-party, cheesecake, jelly bean, boom!
You symbiotic, patriotic, slam, but neck, right?... Right.

(CHORUS) (x5)
