Track Name: Animal Man
Take a look out the window
You see a brown fence
You see a labrador lying there
Sleeping by a park bench

I know
I know
I know it, I know
I know
I know
I know it, I know
I know
I know
I know it, I know
I know
I know
I know it

oooohhhhh yeeeeeeeaaaaahhhh
oooohhhhh yeeeeeeeaaaaahhhh
oooohhhhh yeeeeeeeaaaaahhhh
oooohhhhh yeeeeeeeaaaaahhhh

Take a look out the window
Looks like a film set
Or you're in some kind of dream
Look at all those people

I know
I know
I know it, I know
I know
I know
I know it, I know
I know
I know
I know it, I know
I know
I know
I know it

oooohhhhh yeeeeeeeaaaaahhhh
oooohhhhh yeeeeeeeaaaaahhhh
oooohhhhh yeeeeeeeaaaaahhhh
oooohhhhh yeeeeeeeaaaaahhhh

He's an animal man
Mr. Animal Man
Won't you hold my hand, Mr. Animal Man?

And I know
I know
I know (Oh No)
I know
I know
I know, I know

I know
I know
I know (Oh No)
I know
I know
I know
Oh god do I know!
Track Name: I Ran
I wrote
And wrote
And still I wrote
But I couldn't scrape the barrel

I went to bed
And had a dream
But I couldn't remember a thing

And all day long I walked around and nothing came to me
So I sat down on a stone and I stared out into the sea

Horses, horses, a heard of wild horses
All thundering through the ocean
Honey, honey, honey, honey
Honey bee sat down on my knee


And all day long I walked around and nothing came to me
So I sat down on a rock and stared out into the sea

All day long I walked around and nothing came to me
So I sat down on a rock and stared out into the sea
Track Name: On An Island
The moon has risen in the sky
The tide pulls tight across a rocky break

The boat is nodding on the waves
It sleeps all day under the tall oak tree

Stand by the ocean
Stand by the ocean watching the stars

Sinking sands and foreign lands I saw a hand
Reach through the foggy haze

Fringing the marshes and rivers, beaches and willows
Summer inside a belt of trees

Stand by the ocean
Stand by the ocean watching the stars

Far-stretched light, sun coming up
Melting white against the night

The moon has risen in the sky
The tide pulls tight across a rocky break

The boat is nodding on the waves
It sleeps all day under the tall oak tree

Stand by the ocean
Stand by the ocean watching the stars
Track Name: Rice
A hanging, folded star
sellotaped to a morning sky

I stood there watching for a while
And it was good

When I don't know who I am
And I don't know where you are
Every space is a sun trap
And all the shadows disappear

I stood there watching for a while
And it was good
A field of flowers stretching over
The hill
Track Name: Racehorse
Racehorse
Didn't you notice
That all of your friends
Had given it up?

You don't
Have to push so hard
Because it is over
And there's nothing left

You can always stop

Race horse
I thought I heard
A clap of thunder
rolling over

You can
Yeah, you can run so fast
That I can't keep up with you
And there's nothing that I can do
About it

You can always stop
Track Name: Mr Natural
"HEY MR. BIG SHOT
WON'T YOU SLOW DOWN?"

"I CAN'T SLOW DOWN
IT'LL WASTE MY TIME."

"HEY MR. BIG SHOT
YOU'LL RUN ME DOWN"

"I CAN'T STOP FOR YOU
OR NO-ONE ELSE"

And all I did is watch
The moon

"HEY MR. NATURAL
WON'T YOU SIT DOWN?"

"I CAN'T SIT DOWN
I'VE GOT SOME PLACE TO BE"


"HEY MR. NATURAL
YOU'RE RUNNING AWAY"

"I KNOW BUT IT'S JUST SO HARD
TO STAY"

And all I did is watch
The moon and the stars
All I did is watch
The clouds and the sun and the eternal comic light

I want to be free
To do as I please

"HEY MR. OCEAN
WON'T YOU COOL RIGHT DOWN?"

"MY BODY IS FULL OF
OIL AND PLASTIC AND DEATH"

"HEY MR. OCEAN
YOU'RE NOT VERY WELL"


"I KNOW AND I HAVEN'T GOT
MUCH TIME LEFT"

And all I did is watch
The moon and the stars
All I did is watch
The clouds and the sun and the eternal comic light

I want to be free
To do as I please
I want to be free
To be as I am am
I want to be free
I want to be free
I want to be free
To be as I am
Track Name: Wanderer
You are a wandering man
You wander here,
You wander there
You wander all over the place
But you're always the same
Person you have been

You have a wandering mind
It wanders to the left
And it wanders right out of the sky
But I don't mind,
You're quite a nice guy

Patiently
Waiting to help your friends

You are a violent storm
You rip and you turn and you
Tear right through the day
But you're always the same
Person you have been

You have the straight approach
Methodical, practical, considered
You never delay
In getting things done
Straight away

Patiently
Waiting to help your friends
Celebrate
All your days with me

Celebrate
Celebrate
Waste away
Nothing to say
Don't get up
Don't get up
Stay in bed
Inside your head
Don't stop
Thinking about
Thinking about
All of your friends
it never ends
All of the things
You wish you had done
A kind of man (you wish you were)
A wandering man
