Track Name: In My Laboratory
IN MY LABORATORY
================
Part1
G7/B C F E x3
G7/B C Bb A(flat5) Bb
In my laboratory
10,000 purple Moonbears dance for me
Ghengis Khan is coming round for tea
To my laboratory

In my laboratory
There is nowhere else I'd rather be
Than going at Perception with a skeleton key
In my laboratory

Part2
Cm Am Cm Am
Gm Em Gm Em /F F#
This is the science of Music!

Part1
G7/B C F E x3
G7/B C Bb A(flat5) Bb
In this laboratory
A red herring can become a revolutionary
There's a pathetic fallacy
Hanging in this laboratory

In my laboratory
I feel awash with my own mortality
For an eagle the size of Tennessee
There's always the laboratory

Cm Am Cm Am
Gm Em Gm Em /F F#
This is the science of Music!

Part1
G7/B C F E x3
G7/B C Bb A(flat5) Bb
In this Laboratory
We could find a cure for narcolepsy
I could lobotomise a monastery
I could magnetise a dromedary
I could do anything

Track Name: Yes That's Right We're Stealing Your Soul
YES THAT'S RIGHT WE'RE STEALING YOUR SOUL
========================================
Part 1
G#m G G#m
E B Eb
Yes, That's Right, I'm stealing you soul
But you were letting it go to waste
Voleurism, voyerism, brains have dried out
To see is to steal

Part 2
E G#m Bb G#m
E G#m Bb A
And you look at lovers with jealousy
Because you've got no other friends
Except me and...

Part 1
G#m G G#m
E B Eb
Yes, That's Right, I'm stealing you soul
But you were pissing it down the drain
Your blood has congealed, you won't make a good meal
But your butchery will be complete

Part 2
E G#m Bb G#m
E G#m Bb A
And you look at others with jealousy
Because you've got no brothers
Except me and...

Part 1
G#m G G#m
E B Eb

Part 2
E G#m Bb G#m
E G#m Bb A
And you look at brothers with jealousy
Because you've got no lovers
Except yourself and...

G#m G G#m
Yes, That's Right, I'm stealing you soul
Yes, That's Right, I'm stealing you soul
Yes, That's Right, I'm stealing you soul
Yes, That's Right, I'm stealing you soul

Track Name: Happy Clappy/Doom Jazz
HAPPY CLAPPY/DOOM JAZZ
=======================

Em G C Bm7 D
Bad juju on the rise
Feels like Crawley's pissing in my eyes
Doom Jazz was a blast but you know it moved to fast (for me)
Now I'm John Dalton at the traffic lights

G Cadd9 A Cadd9
I'm no shiny shiny
Happy clappy
Hippy dippy
Namby pamby
Child of love
I'm no idealistic
Martyr to pursuit of truth
Protecting what is right

A C G Eb C Ab
Given the choice I'd rather not fight
Given the choie I'll be reaching for the light

Em G C Bm7 D
Walk in front of trains
I'm tying anvils round my legs and
That's why I'll learn to drive
In the hope that cars will stop me walking back to you

(c) Richard Lomax 2012
Track Name: Spike
SPIKE
=====

Don't be mad with me Spike
If you knew what I was really like
You'd know I'm just messing around
Thinking about that smile

Em G Em G
C Em G F# F Em
Am D C G
Though I may play the clown
I don't want to pay you out
If I go pushing you down
Or calling you names in the playground
You should know that
It's just symptomatic of a little boy crush
Though I'll never ever admit it
I'll just be messing around
Thinking about that smile

Don't be mad with me Spike
If you knew what I was really like
You'd know I'm just messing around
Thinking about that smile

Em G Em G
C Em G F# F Em
Am D C G
Hell I just don't understand it
It's instinct not effort you know
If I go pulling your pigtails
It's just for reaction and so
Oh, don't tell your folks it
We'll just try and coax it
Tease it and draw it on out
And we'll be messing around
Thinking about that smile

Don't be mad with me
Don't be mad with me Spike
If you knew what I was really like
You'd know I'm just messing around
Thinking about that smile

Don't be mad with me
Don't be mad with me Spike
If you really want me on my bike
I'll go but know that I'll be
Messing around
Thinking about that smile

Track Name: Conversations With You When You're Not There
CONVERSATIONS WITH YOU WHEN YOU'RE NOT THERE
==============================================
Gm D Gm D
C#m C E E7
(with capo:
Dm A Dm A
G#m G B B7)
B: Esprit d'Escalier is haunting me
G: A ghost of incoherency
B: We can only agree to disagree to agree
G: Just another 3a.m. Story
B: It seems so clear in my head
G: It's all fine til you speak
G: Then it gets mixed up
B: I know I sound abrupt
G: You're like a car alarm
B: That's my offensive charm

D Daug F A
G Bb D
(A Aaug C E
D F A)
This is how my body tells my brain that I'm in love
Conversations with you when you're not there
And so my brain screams back "My body, you're in love!"
Conversations with you when you're not there

G: My feelings for you are round the 80% mark
B: At best 20, mostly 10
G: I try to express it in words, it's just a mess
B: It happens time and time again
G: I have it all worked out...
B: ...while I'm not around
B: We're not made of plans
G: I don't understand
B: But on the other hand
G: We're like Rock and Sand

This is how my body tells my brain that I'm in love
Conversations with you when you're not there
And so my brain screams back "My body, you're in love!"
Conversations with you when you're not there

F#m Bm7 G A
(C#m F#m7 D E)
This is how my body tells my brain that I'm in love
Conversations with you when you're not there
And so my brain screams back "My body, you're in love!"
Conversations with you when you're not there
And so my brain screams back "My body, you're in love!"
Conversations with you when you're not there
I'd rather have conversations with you
When you're not there
You're not there
You're not there
You're not...

Track Name: Where Did I Sleep Last Night?
WHERE DID I SLEEP LAST NIGHT?
============================
Time & Money - you can't have both
Time & Money - you can't have both
Time & Money - you can't have both
With my Key around my neck
With my Key around my neck
With my Key tell me
Where Did I Sleep Last Night?

Em G C Bm7 (and widdle to Bb on bass)
These are Exciting Times
Billed as suburban crimes
And the back of his hands
No longer look familiar

It's like party tricks to retired magicians
Like symphonies to dulled musicians
Medicine for elderly physicians

C Em/Bb B7 Em
Time & Money - you can't have both
Time & Money - you can't have both
Time & Money - you can't have both
B7
With my Key around my neck
With my Key around my neck
With my Key tell me
Where Did I Sleep Last Night?

Em G C Bm7 (and widdle to Bb on bass)
Disequalibrium
This anger helps me sleep
Do what you have to do
Without resorting to silence

Write another Love Song to your daddy
Write another Love Song to Jesus
Write a Suicide Note to the DSS

C Em/Bb B7 Em
Time & Money - you can't have both
Time & Money - you can't have both
Time & Money - you can't have both
B7
With my Key around my neck
With my Key around my neck
With my Key tell me
Where Did I Sleep Last Night?

Track Name: My Finest Hour
MY FINEST HOUR
==============
E G#m G B
The line
Twixt beast and man
Has never been so blurrily defined
As when stout and red wine
are mix'd

E G#m/D# Dflat5 C#7
C Em Em E
Can you read my memory
For the 12th of February?

A C#m
F#m G# F#m G# F#m G# C#m
It's not my finest hour
Pretty far from my finest hour
It will stay Not my finest hour
Til my next Not finest hour
When will that be?

E G#m G B
I appear to have made
A Gentleman's Mess
It sounds like bad sex
And who wants to hear bad sex?
Not even them that's having it

E G#m/D# Dflat5 C#7
C Em Em E
Can you read my memory?
5th of June entry

A C#m
F#m G# F#m G# F#m G# C#m
It's not my finest hour
Pretty far from my finest hour
It will stay Not my finest hour
Til my next Not finest hour
When will that be?

It's not my finest hour
Pretty far from my finest hour
It will stay Not my finest hour
Til my next Not finest hour
When will that be?

Track Name: Nancy
NANCY
======
Bm E G
I awoke, a man obsessed
From a dream of a girl possessed
I arose and in my haste I forgot to get dressed
I got dressed and I left

From the house to the library
Where a maid behind a desk she stared at me
With one gigantic eyeball - hairy
She spoke, I awoke

A man obessessed by a dream
Of a girl possessed or so it seemed
I arose this time, I dressed and I left
And I marched right up to that library desk

I said "I want every book that you've got
About Nancy Moor-Scott"
Well where the maid had been she now was not
I spoke and awoke a man

Obssessed with a dream of a girl
Possessed by a possibly fictional world
He arose, got dressed and he came to me
At the library

Behind a desk? That's where I find myself
Though I'm positive, a minute ago I was somebody else
And now this man wants every book that I've got
About Nancy Moore-Scott

Had I undertaken some form of monomyth?
Is it Korsakov Syndrome or do I just not exist?
Had my one remaining marble twisted into a schist?
I began to choke and I awoke as I spoke

To a maid behind a desk at a library
I said "If it's not too personal a question, are you you and me me?"
And that hairy eyeball looked startled and said "Who else could we be?"
And I read her nametag and her nametag read 'Nancy'

Her name was Nancy
Her name was Nancy
Her name was Nancy
Her name was Nancy
It wasn't Nancy, it was Lil

Track Name: Blame In Campodia
BLAME IN CAMPODIA
=================

D Amaj7 A11
The Maverick says The Genius
He runs The Show
He runs The Show
But The Genius says The Socialite
He runs The Show
He runs The Show


But such a beautiful sound
Is made in the name
As The Socialite points to The Maverick
And places Campodian Blame

D Amaj7 A11
"This porridge scalds my mouth
I need something lukewarm
And the bed's too hard"
"So pour the porridge in the bed my friend"
The Maverick says
And The Genius would if he had time
But such a beautiful sound
Is made in the name
As The Socialite points to The Maverick
And places Campodian Blame

(c) Richard Lomax 2012
Track Name: Daemon
DAEMON
=======
A6 F#m F#m/G#
This is the tale of 2 daemons
And this is the tale of 2 friends
Everbody is wanting to know
When The Haunting's going to end

D A6
You and me we never stood a chance
You and me we never got that close
D Esus2 A6
But if I could have one birthday wish
It's that your daemon and mine could get it together
And our time may never come ever
But I wish your daemon and mine could get it together

A F#m F#m/G#
Your Green Eyed Monster
Inconvenient though she is
As much as she needs to feel the teeth pierce her skin
The Haunting believes that

D A6
You and me deserve much more than this
You and me we might have got that close
D Esus2 A6
But if I could have one birthday wish
It's that your daemon and mine could get it together
And our time may never come ever
But I wish your daemon and mine could get it together

B A6 Gmaj7 B
I have to lie to you
And our daemon's are used to that
But it tears me up personally
The Haunting rolls his eyes back into his head
White eyes for Green eyes, four White eyes, Green eyes
She said that

D A6
You and me we might just stand a chance
You and me we might have got that close
D Esus2 A6
But if I could have just one birthday wish
It's that your daemon and mine could get it together
And our time may never come ever
But I wish your daemon and mine could get it together
And our time will never come ever
But somewhere your daemon and mine - they will be together

Track Name: I'm Not West
I'M NOT WEST
===========
Everyone I know has problems but me
My auntie's cat is borderline bi-polar
He's got a disordered personality

G Gm Cadd9 Am
I'm Not West
I'm much more sensible than all the rest
I'm Not West

Everyone I know is doing swell but you
Your auntie's cat might have it's fair share of problems
But it's got no idea of what I have to go through

I'm so West
Much more a mess than all the rest
I'm so West

I'm Not West
I'm much more sensible than all the rest
I'm Not West
