Track Name: Dance With Me
Wake up, wake up, oh won't you wake up
Rise up, rise up, oh won't you rise up
Stand up, stand up, oh won't you stand up
And get up, get up, oh won't you get up

Wake up, wake up to the sirens
Rise up, rise up and break the silence
Stand up, stand up to the tyranny
And get up, get up
Oh won't you get up and dance with me

(chorus)
Dance with me
We'll start a little anarchy

Wake up, wake up, oh won't you wake up
Rise up, rise up, oh won't you rise up
Stand up, stand up, oh won't you stand up
And get up, get up, oh won't you get up

Wake up, wake up from your apathy
And rise up, rise up from mediocrity
And stand up, stand up, embrace the infamy
And get up, get up
Oh won't you get up and dance with me

Wake up, wake up, oh won't you wake up
Rise up, rise up, oh won't you rise up
Stand up, stand up, oh won't you stand up
And get up, get up, get up, get up

Wake up, wake up to the sirens
Rise up, rise up and break the silence
Stand up, stand up to the tyranny
And get up, get up
Oh won't you get up and dance with me
Track Name: A Kind of Love
Summer's here, the skies are clear
And I love it here, yes, I do
There we were, hearts unsure
On Shaftsbury Avenue

You held me
Oh you held me

(chorus)
I see the sunshine in your eyes
It's in the way you hold me oh so tight
A kind of love I never felt before
Oh please don't ever, ever let me go
Oh please don't ever leave me here alone
A kind of love I never felt before

Find a way to embrace
Two lovers on the run
Take me back to the place
You said to me I'm the one

You said to me

God, give us salvation
We did him wrong
We did him wrong
We'll take our redemption
And prove them wrong
We'll prove them wrong
Track Name: Late Night Request
Oh sorrow, won't you flow out?
These tired veins have dried
This tired soul has burnt out
Collect her
Bring her back here next to me
Cos I need her now
I need her touch so desperately

So go now
Don't come till the night is done
And I will wait for you
Yeah I will wait for you

Oh distance, why won't you disappear?
This electric love
Is so tiring and so dear
Collect her
Bring her back here next to me
Cos I need her now
Yeah I need her now

So go now
Don't come till the night is done
And I will wait for you
Yeah I will wait for you

Oh won't you come like before?
Oh won't you get on down?
Yeah you know
Oh won't you stay a while?

Oh sorrow, won't you flow out?
These tired veins have dried
This tired soul has burnt out
Collect her
Bring her back here next to me
Cos I need her now
Yeah I need her now
Track Name: Class 'A' Love Affair 2007
What I'd do just to take you in
You know I'll take you
Somewhere deep within
You know I'd die for you
Yeah I'd die for you

Close my eyes
But I can't escape this feeling
Your voice is so gentle and appealing

(chorus)
This fire takes me higher
A bit of desire
That I just can't deny
Oh won't you come a little bit closer
And be mine?

Heavenly
You draw my puckered lips
So slowly
Yeah you smother me within

(chorus)
And say you'll be mine
For all time
We're gonna take it slower
And last a little bit longer

I tried to listen
Yeah, I tried to reason
But this feeling just won't go away
You draw me in so close
You burn my skin
But still I turn to you all night and day

Turn my back, I can't
Stop resisting
Can't deny this love
Everlasting
Light this love
Divine constellation
Mind my heart
This twisted attraction
Taste your sweet release
On my fingers
Rest my soul but leave me so breathless
God, forgive
But please don't deny this
So come on, shine on
Shine all your love upon us
Track Name: Flower Show Riots
Step inside, don't be shy
Blow your mind, see the flowers in the sunshine
You know it could be so fine
Oh yeah it'll be just fine

Chelsea girls with their curls
Dolly birds in their herds
And their miniskirts
You know those things never hurt
Oh yeah they never ever hurt

(chorus)
Welcome to the flower show
Yeah it'll be riot
Don't touch a thing
And it will be just fine
Welcome to the flower show
Yeah it'll be a blast
The pollen breeze in your eyes

Girls and boys with their toys
Little versions of their daddies' precious Rolls-Royce
If you haven't one, it doesn't matter
But you know you really ought to

So come on in, take it in
See the colours and the flowers of the universe
Just remember where you saw it first
Oh yeah you saw it here first

And I know you think you're high society
But you aren't, honey
Track Name: The Great Decay
(chorus)
Well you turn when I talk
Run when I walk
Rise when I fall
Burn when I shiver
Smile when I frown
Go when I come around
Yeah you twist when I shout
In when I'm out
There when I'm here
Why do I bother?
Laugh when I'm done
Whine when I make a sound

It's Sunday, no, it's Monday
Yeah it's bloody every day
You've got me wanting out the door
It's something, no, it's nothing
Well it's everything you believe
You know I've heard it all before

When I'm near you
When I need you
Yeah that's when you're furthest away
What would it take to make you stay?
There's someone, no, there's no one
Well it seems like everyone
Got to see you yesterday

Yeah it's Sunday, no, it's Monday
Yeah it's every day
You've got me wanting out the door
Yeah it's something, no, it's nothing
Yeah it's everything
You know I've heard it all before
Track Name: Flow
Months and months and months I wonder
Will this soul be damned forever
How's your day? It could be better
If you'd care to fix another

Burn the bitch, and let it simmer
Watch it glisten, watch it shimmer
Feel the magic flow a river
Wash away the cold and shiver
Months and months and months I wonder
Will this soul be damned to suffer
Fumes of this addiction linger
Every breath, it takes you further down
Go down

(chorus)
So turn your back on your soul
And push it through your veins
Your back on the world
And take away the pain
But it won't go away
No, it won't go away

Months and months and months I wonder
Will this soul be damned forever
How's your day? It could be better
If you'd care to fix another
Months and months and months I wonder
Will this soul be damned to suffer
Fumes of this addiction linger
Every breath, it takes you further down
Go down
Track Name: Siti in the City
She's out with her friends
Oh she's out with her men
At the disco
And she's got seven missed calls
Her frantic mom's trying to reach her
Cos her little boy's got a bump
All he needs is his mom

But she's not there
No, she's never there

(chorus)
Oh Siti
Please believe me
This isn't ordinary
Siti in the city
It's such a pity

All those cigarettes
All those drinks in bed
Oh you're putting words in his head
Oh his little head is fraught with confusion
Can't tell the wrong from the right
And the day from the night
Cos you're never in sight

You say you care
But you really don't care

Oh Siti, please believe me
This isn't ordinary
Oh won't you listen and please go on home?
Oh Siti, please believe me
This isn't ordinary
Your baby needs you now, please go on home
Track Name: Miss Kensington / Outro
There's something about you I adore
Cos you are the one that I keep wanting more and more

(chorus)
Hopelessly, endlessly, honestly
Hopelessly, endlessly, possibly
So come on, please tell me your name again

The hours that I spent in your eyes
This feeling in my pants, I just can't disguise, oh my

No, I won't forget again
Cos you were my only friend

(Between us)
