Track Name: Beautiful
Well I don't care about size
Because I think that you've got beautiful eyes
And I know that you're a little bit strange
But I don't think that I even care
Because you're beautiful the way that you are
Yes you're beautiful the way that you are

You think that you don't fit in
It's not hard if you swim
Just put your act together and shake your fins

Well even though I think that my sight could use improving
As far as I'm concerned you're mighty good looking

Hey now you're a beautiful fish
And if I could have just one wish
Then I'd want that we could get on
You're a big fish in a very small pond

I don't care about diet
Fish food? Well I guess I could try it
Underwater is where you belong
But underwater you can't hear my songs

You think that you don't fit in
It's not hard if you swim
Just put your act together and shake your fins

Well I don't suppose you feel like joining me on dry land
So I guess I'll have to join you down there under the sand

Hey now you're a beautiful fish
And if I could have just one wish
Then I'd want that we could get on
You're a big fish in a very small pond

You think that you don't fit in
It's not hard if you swim
Just put your act together and shake your fins

Well if we're going to make this work then you have to understand
That I'm a little bit uncomfortable when my socks are damp

You're beautiful the way that you are
Yes you're beautiful the way that you are
Track Name: The Clouds
You feel the Earth descend below your feet
You've left the ground
Above the birds, above the planes
You're with the other clouds

A peaceful solitude
You've never felt quite so alone
A gentle breeze will blow you
As you drift around the globe

You drift around the globe



Feel your body fill with air and light
You're weightless now
Through the empty skies you drift
With all the other clouds

Though you lose the friends you had
Whilst you were on the ground
You've found yourself a family
Forever now a cloud

Forever now a cloud
Track Name: Scientific
Well if I'm honest with you,
I don't know what I'm doing!
And I just found myself here
And it's all out of control!
And I'm a little bit scared
'Cause I don't know what I'm doing!
And I don't know what to do,
So I just go with the flow.

Well it feels ELECTRICAL
Weird and CHEMICAL
The attraction's MAGNETIC
And I'm so PHOTOGENIC

Yes it feels ELECTRICAL
Weird and CHEMICAL
Attraction's MAGNETIC
And you're so PHOTOGENIC

When I first set eyes on her, across the laboratory,
I knew something was different about this girl.
Could it have been her third arm?
Or perhaps the green eyes on the back of her head...?
I don't know!
But as we stayed up late at night discussing enzymes
And shared test tube after test tube of the finest Champagne
I knew that this weird love was meant to be.

Well if I'm honest with you,
It feels kind of crazy.
And I just found myself here,
Now I'm gaining control!
And I'm a little bit scared
'Cause I don't know what I'm doing!
And I don't know what to do,
I really want to let go.

But if I'm honest with you
I think I kind of like it
And now I've found myself here
But it starts to feel weird
And I'm a little bit scared
I think I really like it
And I don't know what to do
But I don't want to let go

Well she's so ELECTRICAL
Weird and CHEMICAL
A little bit UNETHICAL
But so damn MAGICAL

Yes, ELECTRICAL
Weird and CHEMICAL
She's so MAGNETIC
And oh so PHOTOGENIC

Well after dating for several months she took me to meet her parents
And MY GOD! You should have seen my face!
Her father was a little ball of proto-jelly
And her mother was pond slime.
But the vast wonders of evolution reduced me to tears!
That such disgusting components could create such beauty…
My God! What have I done?

Well if I'm honest with you
I think I kind of like it!
And I just found myself here
Now I'm gaining control.
And I'm a little bit scared
'Cause I don't know what I'm doing.
And I don't know what to do,
So I just go with the flow.

Well it feels ELECTRICAL
Weird and CHEMICAL
The attraction's MAGNETIC
And I'm so PHOTOGENIC

Yes it feels ELECTRICAL
Weird and CHEMICAL
Attraction's MAGNETIC
And you're so PHOTOGENIC

Oooh!
Track Name: Graham
I have a friend who's a crocodile
His name is Graham and he makes me smile
He's a friend to all the girls and boys
He just ate all the girls and boys…
Well, Graham, man, that's not so cool
These boys and girls they gotta go to school!
Okay I guess that's true
They can't go if Graham eats the school…

You can't keep eating your problems
That's not very smart
Graham, man, you're looking hungry
You're eying up my guitar

My friend Graham has an appetite
The likes of which will keep you up at night
He's a very hungry crocodile
You'd better beware when you see him smile
Graham, man, are you having fun?
Okay, he just ate the drums…
Just as well we have a spare.

You can't keep eating your problems,
You've got to let it go.
Graham, man, you're looking hungry
Don't eat the piano!

I know a guy who's a crocodile-
My friend-
A good friend-
My BEST FRIEND is a crocodile
His name is Graham and he makes me smile
He's an influence in my daily life-
Graham, no!
Track Name: Long Way Home
Well you're out on the town and you're having a blast
And now it's time to go home
But you've missed the last bus and it's getting late
And you don't want to walk it alone
So you ask your mates if they're getting a taxi
Or is anyone fit to drive?
"Sorry pal, I'm staying at Mike's."
"And we're all going to Hive!"

So pull up your boot straps, put on a warm hat,
Grab your coat, scarf and go.
Don't forget to fake a smile as you turn to your friends
And say: "Right, that's me. I'm off home!"

Well it's a long way home at 2am
When you're on you're own and you're cold
So put your hand in your pocket and bite the bullet
It's about time you hit the road

You're almost halfway there and you're getting hungry
It's a good thing the chippy's in sight
But the lights are off and the shutter's are shut
So no chips for you tonight
You hear some footsteps behind you and look over your shoulder
There's a man that you don't know
He could be a madman or a psycho or worse
So you sprint the rest of your way home

Well it's a long way home at 2am
When you're on you're own and you're cold
So put your hand in your pocket and bite the bullet
It's about time you hit the road

Well you're finally home and you're lying in bed
Thinking all about your 'wonderful' night
But before you doze off you get a random thought
That something here isn't quite right
But you're tired and weary, so it's not a big issue
It'll sort itself out on it's own
Put your head on the pillow and shut your eyes
Then…

Wait a minute, where's my phone!?

Well it's a long way home at 2am
When you're on you're own and you're cold
So put your hand in your pocket and bite the bullet
It's about time you hit the road
