Wanted On Voyage Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Blame It On Me

The garden was blessed by the Gods of me and you
We headed west for to find ourselves some truth, ooh
What you waiting for?
What you waiting for?

We counted all our reasons, excuses that we made
We found ourselves some treasure, and threw it all away
What you waiting for?
No, What you waiting for?
What you waiting for?
No, What you waiting for?

When I dance alone, and the sun's beating down,
Blame it on me
When I lose control and the veil's overused,
Blame it on me
What you waiting for?
No, What you waiting for?

Caught in the tide of blossom, caught in the carnival
Your confidence forgotten, I see the gypsies rule
What you waiting for?
No, What you waiting for?
What you waiting for?
No, What you waiting for?

When I dance alone, and the sun's beating down,
Blame it on me
When I lose control and the veil's overused,
Blame it on me
What you waiting for?
No, What you waiting for?
What you waiting for?
No, What you waiting for?

When I dance alone, and the sun's beating down,
Blame it on me
When I lose control and the veil's overused,
Blame it on me
When I dance alone, I know I'll go
Blame it on me ooh
When I'll lose control, I know I'll go
Blame it on me ooh

What you waiting for?
No, What you waiting for?
What you waiting for?
No, What you waiting for?

Budapest

My house in Budapest
My, my hidden treasure chest,
Golden grand piano
My beautiful Castillo

You
Ooh, you
Ooh, I'd leave it all

My acres of a land
That I've achieved
It may be hard for you to,
Stop and believe

But for you
Ooh, you
Ooh, I'd leave it all

Ooh, for you
Ooh, you
Ooh, I'd leave it all

Give me one good reason
Why I should never make a change
Baby if you hold me
Then all of this will go away

My many artifacts
The list goes on
If you just say the words
I I'll up and run

To you
Ooh, you
Ooh, I'd leave it all

Ooh, to you
Ooh, you
Ooh, I'd leave it all

Give me one good reason
Why I should never make a change
Baby if you hold me
Then all of this will go away

Give me one good reason
Why I should never make a change
Baby if you hold me
Then all of this will go away

My friends and family
They don't understand
They fear they'll lose so much
If you take my hand

But, for you
Ooh, you
Ooh, I'd lose it all

Ooh, for you
Ooh, you
Ooh, I'd lose it all.

Give me one good reason
Why I should never make a change
Baby if you hold me
Then all of this will go away

Give me one good reason
Why I should never make a change
Baby if you hold me
Then all of this will go away

My house in Budapest
My, my hidden treasure chest,
Golden grand piano
My beautiful Castillo

You
Ooh, you
Ooh, I'd leave it all.

Ooh, for you
Ooh, you
Ooh, I'd leave it all

Cassy O'

Cassy's got a new plan
Gotta get herself away
Well, I'd better act quick
Yeah, I'd better change my ways

Oh, maybe I'm wasting
Maybe I'm chasing time
Oh, come on, let's face it
I'm only ever lost in mine

Well, I got my tracing paper
So that I could trace my clock
And the bastard face kept changing
And the hands, they wouldn't stop

I was ripping out the battery
I received myself a shock
And to add insult to injury
I could still hear tick & tock

[Hook]
CASSY O'
CASSY O'
Please don't leave
CASSY O'
CASSY O'
Please don't leave

Cassy's got a new plan
Gotta give herself a break
And I try, I try, I try
For heaven's sake

Well, I traveled to Australia
And I traveled there by train
This something might sound strange to you
But on the way I gained a day

And I wrote to tell my family
And I wrote to tell my friends
I arrived home, it was lost again
And this torture never ends

[Hook]

Inspector, fix me, my Cassy O's burnt out
We're losing memories that I can't replace
She says she's tired of me running in circles
She says it's time that we took a break

[Hook]

Barcelona

Barcelona,
I still long to hold her once more, oh,
My boots of leather,
From Europe
I gather you know, know,

Every time you have to go
Shut my eyes and you know
I'll be lying right by your side
In Barcelona

A native man sang in a foreign tongue,
I still ache to know the song that he sung,
Barcelona

Every time you have to go
Shut my eyes and you know
I'll be lying right by your side
In Barcelona

Every time you have to go
Shut my eyes and you know
I'll be lying right by your side
In Barcelona
Barcelona
Barcelona

Every time you have to go
I shut my mind and you know
I'll be lying right by your side
In Barcelona

Listen To The Man

I feel your head resting heavy on your single bed
I want to hear all about it
Get it all of your chest, oh
I feel the tears and you're not alone, oh
When I hold you, well I won't let go, oh

Why should we care for what they're selling us anyway?
We're so young, girl, and you know, whoa

You don't have to be there, babe
You don't have to be scared, babe
You don't need a plan of what you wanna do
Won't you listen to the man that's loving you

Your world keeps spinning and you can't jump off
But I will catch you if you fall
I can't tell you enough
I hate to hear that you're feeling low
I hate to hear that you won't come home

Why should we care for what they're selling us anyway?
We're so young, girl, and you know, whoa

You don't have to be there, babe
You don't have to be scared, babe
You don't need a plan of what you wanna do
Won't you listen to the man that's loving you, whoa, whoa, whoa.

Easy, easy and a one, two, three, oh
Easy, breezy if you come with me, oh
Easy, easy and a one, two, three, four, five, six, seven eight, nine, nine, nine, nine.

You don't have to be there, babe
You don't have to be scared, babe
You don't need a plan of what you wanna do
Won't you listen to the man that's loving you, whoa.

You don't have to be there, babe
You don't have to be scared, babe
You don't need a plan of what you wanna do
Won't you listen to the man that's loving you, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

Leaving It Up To You

I walk past the bleak walls of an architect's UN-imagination
Returning to the venue where we held that very first conversation
To see you again, to be your friend, to hold you in my mind

And I arrived there early and as always you swanned in much later
As if nothing had ever changed, you nod at me and order your double mixer
To see you again, to be your friend, to hold you in my mind

Leaving it up, leaving it up, leaving it up
Leaving it up to you
Leaving it up, leaving it up, leaving it up
Leaving it up to you

And I've been told your new playmate's successful and he's handsome and he's charming
It's a damn good job he isn't here or I may have wind up harming your darling
To see you again, to be your friend, to hold you in my mind

Leaving it up, leaving it up, leaving it up
Leaving it up to you
Leaving it up, leaving it up, leaving it up
Leaving it up to you
Leaving it up, leaving it up, leaving it up
Leaving it up to you
Leaving it up, leaving it up, leaving it up
Leaving it up to you

We laughing and we joking like we always, always used to
Too rudely interrupted by your half-with of a boyfriend who tries to call you
To see you again, to be your friend, to hold you in his mind

Leaving it up, leaving it up, leaving it up
Leaving it up to you
Leaving it up, leaving it up, leaving it up
Leaving it up to you
Leaving it up, leaving it up, leaving it up
Leaving it up to you
Leaving it up, leaving it up, leaving it up
Leaving it up to you
Leaving it up, leaving it up, leaving it up
Leaving it up to you

Did You Hear The Rain?

Did you hear the thunder?
Or the rain?
Means I'm coming home again
Means I'm coming home my friend

Did you steal my name?
Oh, you Jack of all trades
You're the master of none
Oh, the race has begun
I was born a champion
I was born to jump and run

Did you hear the rain?
Oh, the rain?
You can try & run & hide
Tearing at the chain
Oh, Lucifer's inside

Did your siblings tell you
I was wasting up your time
Oh, now you're wasting mine
You put me back in line
And I'm counting every link
And I guess you think that's fine

Did you hear the rain?
Oh, the rain?
You can try & run & hide
Tearing at the chain
Oh, Lucifer's inside

Oh, did I send a shiver
Down your spine?
Well I do it all the time
It's a little trick of mine
Did I make you shake your knees
Did I make him spill his wine
Lord, I'm spreading like disease
Lord, I'm all up in your mind
Oh, Lucifer's inside
Lucifer's inside

Did you hear the rain?
Oh, the rain?
You can try & run & hide
Tearing at the chain
Means I'm coming home again
Means I'm coming home my friend
Oh, Lucifer's inside
Oh, Lucifer's inside
Oh, Lucifer's inside.

Drawing Board

I'll fill your pillow case up with snakes,
The man eating kind,
Though you call yourself a women,
I doubt it they would mind
Oh mind,
Oh mind,

There's just one problem with my plan,
you spend your nights with another man
Oh you don't rest your head in mine no more
I've gotta take my plug back to the drawing board
Oh my, oh
Oh, my
Oh, my, my

Oh lady,
I'm a heart ache,
I'm a desperate plan in hands,
Oh, I'm a blue-print in the sand,
Oh my

You mentioned taking a holiday and I recalled you couldn't swim
So I booked us scuba diving off the North coast of Belgium
Oh my,
Oh my,

And I drew an image in my head,
Of you sinking just like led
But I never found you washed up on the shore,
I've gotta take my plug back to the drawing board
Oh my, oh
Oh, oh, my
Oh, my, my

Oh lately,
I'm a heart ache,
I'm a desperate plan in hands
Oh I'm a blueprint in the sand
Oh my

Oh, I'm the one you seldom came to see
Oh, I was hidden,
Oh, I've been busy working on my scheme,
Oh, to teach you how to hurt

You said you needed a haircut
I recommended Mr Todd
Of all the men in this big bad world
He's perfect for the job
Oh my, oh
Oh, oh, my
Oh, my, my,

Oh lately,
I'm a heart ache,
I'm a desperate plan in hands
Oh I'm a blueprint in the sand

Oh lately,
I'm a heart ache,
I'm a desperate plan in hands
Oh I'm a blueprint in the sand

Oh lately,
I'm a heart ache,
and I haven't seen you since
So now I'm praying that your mince all mine

Stand By Your Gun

I wouldn't recommend what I have done
No the prophets pointed out where I went wrong
Singing, go figure our true desires
My darling, stand by your gun

See we don't need,
No nothing more,
We're quite attached to the forty-four,
Take a chance,
Take your words,
We fall down, we go there, we go anywhere,

My mistakes lit like embers on your tongue
In the foreground, you're still busy getting young,
Singing, go figure our true desires,
My darling, stand by your gun

See we don't need,
No nothing more,
We're quite attached to the forty-four,
Take a chance,
Take your words,
We fall down, we go there, we go anywhere singing

Go figure our true desires,
My darling, stand by your gun

See we don't need,
No nothing more,
We're quite attached to the forty-four,
Take a chance,
Take your words,
We fall down, we go there, we go anywhere

Waste your time, on lessons learned,
How long will you go? will you go? will you go? and
Waste your time, on lessons learned,
How long will you go? will you go? will you go? and
Waste your time, on lessons learned,
How long will you go? will you go? will you go? and
Waste your time, on lessons learned,
How long will you go? will you go? will you go? and

Breakaway

He won't tell her what is going on
He won't tell her what is going on
Well try'o try o, lie'o lie o
He won't tell her what is going on
You may think that he's a demolition expert
When he's finished with your self-esteem
It may be true we all need knockig down a few
Come find shelter or your shelter with me, with me
Breakaway
She don't like to disturb the peace
Became attached to the weak at least
She's got, diamonds to show for it
That tree of gold for it
She don't like to disturb the peace
You may think that he's a master of disguise
You lost your dignity you compromised
It may be true we all need knocking down a few
Come find shelter oh your shelter with me, with me
Breakaway oh, Breakaway oh, Breakaway oh, Breakaway oh
Breakaway oh, Breakaway oh, Breakaway oh, Breakaway oh
Breakaway oh, Breakaway oh,
Breakaway oh, Breakaway oh,
You may think that he's a demolition expert
When he's finished with your self-esteem
It may be true we all need knocking down a few
Come find shelter oh your shelter with me, with me
Breakaway, Breakaway

Over The Creek

I may love you in the morning
Like today, you'll never know
Step this way, I find the garden
Like today, you'll never know

Well you may claim that you found me
Like today, you'll never know
Like today, you'll never know

Well nonetheless,
I must confess,
That I'm the mess that has been left to save you

Your situation must be dire
Your situation must be over the creek
Haunted we speak
But I can't of left you, I still haven't met you

Well I may fall into your dance
Like today, I'd never know
We may meet with awkward hearts
Like today, I'd never know
Oh like today, I'd never know

Well nonetheless I must confess, that I'm the mess that
Has been left
Well nonetheless I must confess I'm the mess that
Has been left to save you
My situation must be dire
My situation must be over the creek
And haunted we speak, and I can't of left you
I still haven't met you

If ever said too much
Hear my last spoken words
And if I never said enough
Well bleed my last spoken words
Well bleed my last spoken words

Oh nonetheless I must confess that I'm the mess
That has been left
Well nonetheless I must confess that I'm the mess that
Has been left to save you
Our situations must be dire
Our situation must be over the creek
Haunted we speak, over the creek
Haunted we speak
I can't of left you
I still haven't met you

Spectacular Rival

Violence in the air,
Cut those stares,
We're just window shopping
Won't you dance with me?
I'm gonna knock you down,
Have you after hours

Till many sugar dips,
you'll get licked,
beautiful punchbag,
I'm gonna lay you down,
Just call me Mr. Ground.

Ohhhhhhh,

I'm not that kind of man in the day,
Won't you hold me steady spectacular rival?
And i've had medicine
Though you're not my friend,
I'll love you 'till the end

Either way,
Heaven's got a place for me
Your majesty,
Why you got it in for me?

Either way,
Heaven's got a place for me
Your majesty,
Why you got it in for me?

Either way,
Heaven's got a place for me
Your majesty,
Why you got it in for me?

Either way,
Heaven's got a place for me
Your majesty,
Why you got it in for me?

Song 6

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

The modern office building's are chasing the sun
and the wind is racing after the day
And everybody's chasing a beauty they don't have
and I'm, woah I'm, I'm chasing you

The raindrops keep falling, searching for a home
My televisions gasping for air
And everybody's searching, searching for a reason
and I'm, woah I'm, searching for you

We are only dreaming and I'm dreaming only of you
We are only dreaming and I'm dreaming only of you

The militant commuters come waiting for the train,
in the longest Bavarian night
And everybody's waiting, waiting for the sunrise
And I'm, woah I'm, waiting for you

We are only dreaming and I'm dreaming only of you [x4]

It's Just My Skin

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

There's a lock on my cupboard door,
That I can only reach once inside,
And I often sit and wonder who designed,
Such a perfect place for me to hide

It's just my name,
It's just my skin,
Holding a boulder,
Can you swim?
Oh as we fall,
Through the water,
You find a piece within,
And you know it's just your skin

Well I was never lonely 'till the day that I was born,
Since that day I masquerade in a skin that I have worn,
With at least three separate individual minds,
When long John returns he'll give a scream,
and what he finds

Is just my name,
Is just my skin,
Holding a boulder,
Can you swim?
Oh as we fall,
Through the water,
You find a piece within,
And you know it's just your

Black dog, black dog, that I'll never know,
Oh black dog haunts you mind, your world, your soul,
Oh black dog, black dog, can't you see I am fine?
Oh black dog, black dog, you're no plague of mine.

It's just my name,
It's just my skin,
Holding a boulder,
Can you swim?
It's just my name,
Oh, it's just my skin,
Holding a boulder,
Can you swim?
Oh as we fall,
Through the water,
You find a piece within,
And you know it's just your skin.

Da Vinci Riot Police

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

Country boys and city girls
Travelling to a foreign world, world
Oh, Da Vinci riot police
Cold War preacher on your street alone, alone

It started when your mother was young,
In every song your father sung
He'd take it and he'd make it your own

Any other road yet to run
So bind your heart in, back with love
Carry on, carry on
Many other roads yet to run
So bind your heart in, back with love
Carry on, carry on

Call your friends and pack your bags
To the brim, now we're nomads, mad.
European sonic boom, electric chapel - book a room, a room

It started when your mother was young,
With every song your father sung
He'd take it and he'd make it your own

Many other roads yet to run
So bind your heart in, back with love
Carry on, carry on
Many other roads yet to run
So bind your heart in, back with love
Carry on, carry on

It started when your mother was young,
With every song your father sung
He'd take it and he'd make it your own

Many other roads yet to run
So bind your heart in, back with love
Carry on, carry on
Many other roads yet to run
So bind your heart in, back with love
Carry on, carry on

Blind Man In Amsterdam

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

I saw a blind man in Amsterdam with a box around his neck
and the music box kept singing on and the song I won't forget

it went boomdidi boomdidi boom boom boom boodum boodum boo bum
boomdidi boomdidi boom boom boom boodum boodum boooodum

Well 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 walk past the man so fast
the audience kept moving on ignoring the cast
I found 50 heavy currencies and dropped it in his tin
he said "When your adventure ends your next one will begin"
When this adventure ends your next one will begin

With a boomdidi boomdidi boom boom boom boodum boodum boo bum
boomdidi boomdidi boom boom boom boodum boodum boooodum

You'll find a blind man in Amsterdam with a box around his neck
and the music box keeps singing on and the song you won't forget
the song you won't forget

With a boomdidi boomdidi boom boom boom boodum boodum boo bum
boomdidi boomdidi boom boom boom boodum boodum boooodum
boomdidi boomdidi boom boom boom boodum boodum boo bum
boomdidi boomdidi boom boom boom boodum boodum boooodum
boomdidi boomdidi boom boom boom boodum boodum boo bum
boomdidi boomdidi boom boom boom boodum boodum boooodum
