White Light White Heat

"An enjoyable album, highly recommended for those who want to return to those fine C-86 days of the June Brides and Brilliant Corners."

Track Name: Breakout!
Listen
There's a breakout here tonight
So if you want in
Tap three times on the pipes.
The prison hasn't been built that can hold you
So no matter what they told you
You're gonna be just fine

Breakout!
Tonight's the night
We're going to scale these walls and drop the other side
A silhouette in the spotlight
Breakout!
You got it right
We're gonna tunnel under floors until we see daylight
And life burns in our eyes, in our eyes

There's a rumble in the wings
A stifled spirit sings
On the inside you get a lot of time to think
But all you think about is getting out
Far away from here

Breakout!
Tonight's the night
We're going to scale these walls and drop the other side
A silhouette in the spotlight
Breakout!
You got it right
We're gonna tunnel under floors until we see daylight
And life burns in our eyes, in our eyes

Listen
The world is changing fast
Don't miss it
Cause you won't get the time back

Breakout!
Tonight's the night
We're going to scale these walls and drop the other side
A silhouette in the spotlight
Breakout!
You got it right
We're gonna tunnel under floors until we see daylight
And life burns in our eyes, in our eyes
Track Name: Our Girl Is Gone
Help! Our girl has gone
Went to school on her bike but she never arrived
Where's she gone?
She left us a note, just said she couldn't cope
Where's she gone?

Find her!
Find her and bring her back home
Find her!
Find her and bring her back home

Please, our girl has gone
She's not street wise or wild
She's just an innocent child on her own
She's had problems before
We just didn't realise she was so low

Find her!
Find her and bring her back home
We're not angry
Just Find her and bring her back home


They've found her!
They've found her! They're bringing her home!
They've found her!
They've found her! They're bringing her home!
They've found her!
They've found her! They're bringing her home!
They've found her!
They've found her!
They've found her!
Track Name: Slow Cooked
I don't look at my bank account
I won't brook getting that stressed out
Why dwell on pain
That I can't change?

Slow cooked girl seeks slow cooked guy
For wasting time and running wild
Take my heart, it's ready now
Been waiting so long to come out

Don't wear a watch around my hand
If I'm late that's your too bad
I'm in no rush
Slow cooked

Slow cooked girl seeks slow cooked guy
For wasting time and running wild
Take my heart, it's ready now
Been waiting so long to come out

I've been cooking up something so long
Put a fork in me darling, I'm done
I'm a slow cooked girl
Take my heart
I'm a slow cooked girl
Slow cooked girl
Track Name: What Are You Celebrating?
What are you celebrating?
What are you celebrating?
The country's in a mess
But did you see her dress
What are you celebrating?

What are you celebrating?
What are you celebrating?
The future's looking bleak
But isn't he so sweet
What are you celebrating?

When I think about these times
An anxious feeling swells up inside
What are you celebrating?
What are you celebrating?

You camped out overnight
To get a good view
They moved along the homeless
To make more room
There's a newspaper cutout, a flag to wave
They took a little break from peddling fear and hate
And just who is paying for this farce
While schools and hospitals are on their arse
Why, the general public baby, you and me
For some things there is a magic money tree
When the cry goes out 'God save the Queen'
What are you celebrating?
Track Name: Foreign Ways
Far from home, I never strayed
But in my soul lie foreign ways

I should be just like a native
But I'm dissimilated

I'm a stranger in this land that made me
Though I've worked so hard to belong
And I learned to speak the language
But at night I dream in my own tongue

Local born but ill-attuned
And everyone calls me coocoo

I should be just like a native
But I'm dissimilated

I'm a stranger in this land that made me
Though I've worked so hard to belong
And I learned to speak the language
But at night I dream in my own tongue

I'm a stranger in this land that made me
But I can't leave now
'Cos I've got so many reasons to stay here
This is my town

I’ve got foreign ways
They say I've got foreign ways
Track Name: I Can't Go Outside
10.29 on a Saturday night
And I’m coming alive
I am buzzing to see you
Dressed to the nines
Got my hair piled high
Got my dancing shoes tied
And I can't wait to meet you

But as I walk to the door
There’s a quaking in my thoughts
I feel the beat of my heart
Beating up my mind

I hesitate, what will I say?
Coz I can’t go outside
I can’t close my eyes
No, I can’t go outside
It's too late for tonight
So if it’s all the same
I’ll hold my breath and wait
I’ll hang on for another day

Shaking the weight
I head down to the place
I bite my lip and I sigh
But I just have to see you
Waiting to brace
I fix a smile on my face
Get a grip on myself
As I’m dying to see you

But as I walk to the floor
Counting my foot steps as I roll
I take a deep breath in
It’s all that’s left to do

I hesitate, what will I say?
Coz I can’t go outside
I can’t close my eyes
No, I can’t go outside
I won’t sleep tonight
So if it’s all the same
I’ll hold my breath and wait
I’ll hang on for another day
Track Name: Almost Falling In Love
I didn't want to spy
When I was recruited
I was stupid
Didn't know it was an interview

Now that the end is nigh
I wanna see what happens
Though it's madness
'We're not in Kansas anymore'

Whoa whoa whoa
I'm almost falling in love

I know that you won't change
There's something in your brain
That's twisted
But in your eyes there's something true

Things will never be the same
This is my final case
And no matter what happens
I will follow you

Whoa whoa whoa
I'm almost falling in love
Track Name: Hurry On Home
When I finally reached you
I knew that I had found
Someone to dance about
Someone to make me shout out

My pounding heartbeat tells me
I’ve got someone to hold me up
Someone who builds me up,
Someone who lifts me up

Hurry on home
Hurry on home to me
Hurry on home
Hurry on home

With every passing minute
I’ve got someone to stand beside
Someone to lie beside
Someone who makes me smile

I wanna tell the mountains
I’ve got someone who makes me run
Someone who makes me jump
There’s nothing I’m hiding from

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
There’s so much I wanna say
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Darling don’t make me wait

Hurry on home
Hurry on home to me
Hurry on home
Hurry on home
Track Name: No Mystery
Do you see in me
All the little clues to how I feel
For you tenderly
How I feel for you is no mystery

Do you hear my thumping heart
My mouth go dry, my voice drop
Kiss my cheek and it feels hot
And I feel myself burning up

Do you see in me
All the little clues to how I feel
For you passionately
How I feel for you is no mystery

Do you see my eagerness
To pay you favours and compliments
Like your faithful teacher's pet
You smile at me and ruffle my hair

Do you see in me
All the little clues to how I feel
For you passionately
How I feel for you is no mystery

It's no mystery
I'm not that hard to read
I know you know it's true
I've got it bad for you!
Track Name: Ted Wedding
There was a girl, and she liked Teds
She did not care what people said
And there was one boy with slicked back hair
Who loved her so, and he asked her square
'Do you wanna have a Ted wedding?'
She laughed like a drain and said 'yeah!'

So she told her folks she was engaged
And how she hoped her dear old dad would give her away
But the Old Man, he blew a fuse
Said 'you marry this boy, I'll disown you
If there's gonna be a Ted wedding
Well me and your mum won't be there'

Well the day arrived and in defiance our heroes wed
When who should come but dad and mum in shiny new threads
Turned up jeans and duffle coats and thick crepe shoes
And they all made nice and danced all night with old friends and new
It was a Ted wedding, and everyone there was a Ted!
Track Name: (I Wanna Go) Out
Been asleep since I got out of bed
Feeling like the walking dead
When I speak I don't recognise my voice
All I do is work and collapse
The hours are long and the pay is bad
All I want is to make a little noise

I wanna go out
Out where the music is loud

Don't wanna be sitting at home
Fall asleep with the TV on
Feeling life is slipping out of reach
Right now I'm climbing the walls
I'm dangerously bored
And if I don't have some fun
I'm going to scream

I wanna go out
Out where the music is loud

Once I was out every night
But loneliness grows like a vine
And before you know
You're on your own screaming to be out

I wanna go out
Out where the music is loud
I wanna go out
Out where there's love to be found
Track Name: I Like You In Blue
There you are
The girl that I knew
The one who blew me apart
Your sway when you move
The wave in you hair
Your face when you smile
I like you in blue

Here you are
Good times I recall
Times I hold in my heart
You started a band
You starred in my tale
Your parting words
I like you in blue

In reverie I sometimes ponder
Will we just become a moment
Lost in a sea of confusion
How far and wide is that damn ocean?
Who whoa who am I trying to fool
Words spin in an endless loop
Tell me should I just cut loose
I’m counting down the days till I’m with you

I like you in blue

(It's that thing when you're with someone
and you love them and they know it
and they love you and you know it
but it's a party and you're both talking to other people,
and you're laughing and shining
and you look across the room and catch each other's eyes
because that is your person)
Track Name: Into The Wild
The first time you looked at me it felt like the first time
Someone really saw me in my life
The first time you spoke to me it felt like the first time
I was really talking in my life

On the extinction list I knew no others of my kind
Until I saw you for the first time

The first time you confided in me I could tell I was hearing
Words that you were speaking for the first time
And each time you smiled at me I could swear I was flying
And my tender heart it filled with pride

On the extinction list I knew no others of my kind
Until I saw you for the first time

The last time I held you it felt like the first time
I didn't apprehend it was goodbye
And as you walked away from me for what was the last time
I knew I'd love you until I die

On the extinction list our habitat declined
Still, I'm glad you got your wish
And were let back into the wild
