KARMA BOMB 04:34
well..you never know what's waitin' around the corner waitin' to trip you up, taggin' along for the ride and you never can tell who'll be there to back you up standing in your corner when the chips are down how come it's all hanging over me like a parasol sheltering me from the sun now I never meant you any harm and I'm still beguiled by your charm how I long to be wrapped in your arms.. forever karma comes a walkin', and karma comes a'talkin' karma comes a chalkin' one up for me oh karma comes a rockin', karma comes a knockin' karma comes a sockin' one for me karma bomb...karma bomb Oh you never know what's hiding in the closet skeletons in the cupboard who's the rat on the sinkin' ship ? sheltered in a cloud of cotton wool with your head up a place where the sun don't shine no I never expected the unexpected that was now and this is then like a rabbit in the headlights...bewildered karma does the walkin', and karma does the talkin' karma is a chalkin' one up for me Karma is a comin', karma is a hummin' karma is a bummin' a ride with me karma bomb...karma bomb cast your spell..on a rainy day down a wishing well you throw it all away now who can tell, and who's to say so I'll paint it all with gold leaf and chase the indigo..away now if I'm a cloud, you are a puff of smoke as we mingle till we become as one as we float across an obsidian sky above the ocean of tears we cried gently we meld...and become, one and the same CHORUS outro etc

I open the curtains & see my reflection frown at me the sun's behind a dark old cloud so I crawl on back into bed take a look around I can see there's something missing every sight & every sound I want it to be just like the very first time won't you help me find my way...into the zone help me to get through the day...into the zone take me to that magic place...into the.. I been missing your laughter been craving the comfort of your love so here I am wasted I'm totally shit-faced once again oh heaven knows.. so it goes barking at the moon looking for some magic under the table away with the fairies .. having a party in my head heading into.. heading into the zone there's a party in my head..into the zone having a party in my head..into the zone there's a party in my head..into the.. won't you help me find my way help me to get through the day take me to that magic place there's a party in my head having a party in my head

SANDCASTLES 06:45
been fighting a feeling, it won't go away been wrestling my demons been searching for meaning on a bright summers day I been lost in a dreamland, on a porcelain bus there's no time for hindsight to forgive & forget is a must been watching sandcastles.. wash away been watching that blue blue blue sky fade to grey I been drinking from a glass half full I been swimming in a paddling pool been watching sandcastles.. wash away I been walking dark alleys been crawling through quicksand I been marching in circles riding bareback on turtles going nowhere fast I'm wandering through a junkyard praying it can only get better playing cat & mouse on a sunkissed day with you & I'm wrapped up in wonder at the beauty of it all oh.. & if my eyes don't deceive me I took them off the ball been watching sandcastles.. wash away been watching that blue blue blue sky fade to grey been swimming up a waterfall kicking around a concrete ball watching sandcastles.. wash away tell me all about the magic world that you come from into my silver dreams someone threw a karma bomb why do my feelings get in the way of a good time like watching sandcastles.. wash away

there's a man in the attic nobody's ever seen all day all night at the window keepin' an eye on everything now he's supposed to be in charge make sure everythin's alright but as far as I can tell the job he's doin' is shite ohh...the man in the attic what would I say, what would I do ? if I came face to face with him I got a question or two why don't ya come downstairs ? and show yourself there seems to be a few things you've overlooked that need sorting out I don't believe in Santa Claus fairytales & miracles I just believe in the here & now there ain't no man upstairs ! so come on & smell the roses so good to be alive right here under our noses you just have to open your eyes ah.. you got to be jokin' oh.. you're pullin' my leg I don't believe the claptrap that the big book says ohh... the man in the attic nobody's ever seen him never answers his door now I'm gonna take my chances & have a bet each way that there ain't no big white pearly gates & there ain't no better place no reunion with my loved ones no angels up in the clouds & no man upstairs I don't believe in Santa Claus fairytales & miracles I just believe in the here & now there ain't no man upstairs ! now the man in the attic, the man upstairs I think he was invented to allay all our earthly fears a wild hallucination, a bit of wishful thinkin' created by some crazy old monk who musta been drinkin' the man in the attic...

AH-OH 04:07
Just when it all looks rosy & the icing's on the cake here comes that clap of thunder with the lightning in it's wake never give up keep fighting for the things you believe in don't bow down, don't suck it up to the powers that be when the bottom falls out of your world just when you thought it was all plain sailing when the passion flies out the window wooh ooh.... Some people live in a bubble the center of the universe floating around in a dream world the best of the worst love has it's own sweet instinct that finds it's way to the heart like an insect finds it's way to the flower with a will you can't tear apart when the bottom falls out of your world just when you thought it was all plain sailing when the passion flies out the window wooh ooh.... Sometimes there is no answers just let it...let it all go stop asking so many dang questions just go with the flow never give up keep fighting for the things you believe in don't bow down, don't suck it up to the powers that be Ah oh...ah oh ah oh etc.... here we go again

yeah I been watchin' him spew his insanity from his golden pulpit hypnotized by the sound of his own ranting voice his hairpiece flapping in the wind offering the poor nothing but catchphrases and venomous vitriol and rancid glimmers of hope ohoh oh oh mister meglamaniac floating away on a sea of your own bile and every time he opens his mouth total nonsense dribbles out now don't believe a word he says oh heaven help the gutless wonder so say so long to the gutless wonder as he spouts his endless lies bye bye bye bye say goodbye to the gutless wonder explosive words of dynamite from the lips of a conman a narcissistic delusional proto-fascist clown he's completely void of grace and bankrupt of soul they wanna put a lunatic in charge of the asylum say so long to the gutless wonder and say goodbye to the voice of hate and fear and every time he opens his mouth total nonsense dribbles out now don't believe a word he says oh heaven help the gutless wonder so say so long to the gutless wonder as he spouts his endless lies bye bye bye bye say goodbye to the gutless wonder

CREME BRULEE 04:28
8 egg yolks, 50 grams castor sugar 1 vanilla pod, 600 ml of whipping cream & most importantly.. preheat the oven to 180˚ now put the cream & vanilla pod in the pan heat it up to scolding point making sure that it does not boil remove the vanilla pod & set it aside whipping up a special treat whipping up something sweet I'm feeling under the weather need a sugar hit to feel better we're on our way... Creme Brulee beat the egg yolks with the castor sugar when it's light & fluffy stir in the warm cream now place the mixture in a bowl over a pan of simmering water on a gentle heat..stirring all the time now pour the custard into an ovenproof serving dish place it in a roasting pan half filled with hot water and bake for 12 minutes to create a good skin on top refrigerate overnight.. next day to finish the brulees sprinkle with castor sugar & place under a blazing hot grill the sugar will melt & caramalize allow to cool before serving the top should be hard & crackly oh oh oh ... Creme Brulee & look, if by any chance the mixture is still a bit runny put it back in the oven & cook for a further 5 minutes remove it from the oven, serve at room temperature or chilled...it's really up to you so if you're feeling...I don't know.. dejected.. sad.. lonely got noone special in your life, I highly recommend making yourself.. a Creme Brulee doesn't get much better... I tell ya !
