Track Name: And Yet The World Turns
Maude: Zoos are full, prisons are overflowing. Ah, my! How the world still dearly loves a cage.

Never had a dark thought
Never felt a love rot
I just work the nine to five
That's all I do, and I'm alive

And I never really dreamed of too much more

Never seen a sad face
Or thought much about the human race
I just punch out and punch in
And I'd do it all again

And I never really dreamed of too much more

And yet the world turns
Though your soul, it burns
You long to end these bitter wars
And get the rich to feed the poor

But I guess I never thought like that before

Never wanted to run away
From all the bills I have to pay
I do my best to please the man
Who signs my checks and ties my hands

And I guess I never thought of too much more

Never had to fight
Or stand up for my own rights
I guess I'm no protected class
And I'm fine with kissing ass

And I'm not real keen on doing too much more

And yet the world turns
Though your soul, it burns
You long to end these bitter wars
And get the rich to feed the poor

But I guess I never thought like that before
No I never really dreamed of too much more
No I never really dreamed of too much more
And I guess I never thought like that before
Track Name: A.O.
I can feel your thoughts
You go to the same place
Head and heart of have-nots
Fate brought me your crying face

Strange dreams and telepathy
I don't know where
Where I would be

I'm in your head
You're in my heart
I don't think I know where to start
Track Name: Deathstar
All I want is to evade you
But somehow I'm drawn to the dark side

Every time life seems to fade
You force me back for one more try

You came on looking like a starman
But then you burned completely black

Felt you were my only hope and
Now all that love I can't get back

No more love
No more war
No more love
No more war
No more war
No more war
No more love
No more love
No more stars
No more wars
No more stars
No more wars

The trouble is, people get too attached
to each other, things drag on...
...scenes, tears.
Everything gets so maudlin.
I think people should always behave
as though they were between planes.
Very sound, Mr. Flannagan.
It's basic.
He who loves and runs away,
lives to love another day.

- from Love In The Afternoon
Track Name: Summer Lover
You've got a good thing going
Someone there to hold you tight
All the sparks and stars are showing
And they'll even treat you right

Then one day a wave comes crashing
You see the dark you thought had died
You look around and you start asking
Convince yourself it was a lie

Find another summer lover
One to rest your dreams upon
Til one day, you discover
The days to live your dreams are gone

Looking back, you realize
It was only in your mind
The damage done, love has died
If you had only been more kind

If you had only been more kind

Find another summer lover
One to rest your dreams upon
Til one day, you discover
The days to live your dreams are gone

Maybe one day in your quest
If they forgive what you have been
They can overlook the rest
And find your crazy heart again
Track Name: Revolution
Til the war came
We didn't know we wanted a revolution
We didn't know about a solution

Mr. Goldman
I'm not asking for a contribution
We didn't know about a solution

Instead of shaking Wall Street hands
How about we lift up our fellow man?
How about that, Mr. Goldman?

It could be time now
To live for the weak
Before we lay our flowers at their feet

Til the war came
We didn't know we wanted a revolution
We didn't know about a solution

Instead of shaking Wall Street hands
How about we lift our fellow man?
How about that, Mr. Goldman?

Instead of shaking Wall Street hands
How about we lift our fellow man?
How about that, Mr. Goldman?

How about that, Mr. Goldman?
Track Name: In A Country Song
Here comes that old flame
And I'm feeling just the same
Look at me now
Moving on, I don't know how

I've changed the name
I've changed the tune
But it's still the same song about you

I've got a band now
And we roll from town to town
We break lots of hearts
But it's still mine that's split apart

I've changed my name
I've changed the tune
But it's still the same song about you

You can't hide your love for me
You know that would be wrong
Just like I can't hide my love
In a country song

You can't hide your love for me
You know that would be wrong
Just like I can't hide my love
In a country song
Track Name: Crazy
You can say he's crazy
And you've every right to
But I know that he adores me
And I won't put my love away for you

Oh you can call it in
But that won't change what's within
My love and I

Oh you can put him away
But I'll wait every day
For my guy
Track Name: All I Want
Harold: Maude, do you pray?
Maude: Pray, no. I communicate.
Harold: With God?
Maude: With life!


Life, let it be
Love, let it see

You make a change
Don't feel the pain

You said you wanted to believe
And that you wanted me to be

All I want's a reason why
Love keeps passing me on by
Track Name: Metal Guru
Metal Guru is it you
Metal Guru is it you
Sitting there in your armour plated chair

Metal Guru is it true
Metal Guru is it true
All alone without a telephone

Metal Guru could it be
You're gonna bring my baby to me
She'll be wild you know
A rock'n'roll child

Metal Guru has it been
Just like a silver-studded sabre-tooth dream
I'll be clean you know
Pollution machine
