Track Name: Stash
Roads through trees the culture, not money vulture
Runs into one another
Smiling faces greet the races of entertaining creed
Give them what they need, they feed we feed
Carrying a story free
Give them what they need, they feed we feed

Eithaf da, eithaf da, rwyn teimlo'n eithaf da
Eithaf da, eithaf da, rwyn teimlo'n eithaf da
Teulu mawr, ydy hyn a'r fordd, bywyd hawdd
Arddechog
Eithaf da, eithaf da, rwyn teimlo'n eithaf da

Roads bleed into one another
Laces to the places for the traveller
Stare into the engine, into the sky
Not the proper job, not the treadmill guy
Carrying a story free
Give them what they need, they feed we feed

Eithaf da, eithaf da, rwyn teimlo'n eithaf da
Eithaf da, eithaf da, rwyn teimlo'n eithaf da
Teulu mawr, ydy hyn a'r fordd, bywyd hawdd
Arddechog
Eithaf da, eithaf da, rwyn teimlo'n eithaf da

What a party is this my friend
We hope it never ends
The others here before us, the dancing it descends
What a party is this my friend
We hope it never ends
The others here before us, the dancing it descends

Eithaf da, eithaf da, rwyn teimlo'n eithaf da
Eithaf da, eithaf da, rwyn teimlo'n eithaf da
Teulu mawr, ydy hyn a'r fordd, bywyd hawdd
Arddechog
Eithaf da, eithaf da, rwyn teimlo'n eithaf da
Track Name: Keep Ya Feet Still
Dream te drive me cuddy hyem / dream to ride my horse home
Bonny lasses by me side / pretty girls by my side
Toastin' dear friends near and far
Dance te my delight
All through the night
Divent drive me bonny dreams away Geordie lad
Aye keep ya feet still

Keep ya feet still Geordie hinny
We'll be happy through tha neet
Giv us that bit comfort
Keep ya feet still Geordie lad
All through the night
Divent drive me bonny dreams away

Wi a dad from Geordie's byuts / With a kick from George's boots
Wi dunsh his fyut did mek / With a hit from his foot
A canny dream he cowped me creeks / during a pleasant dream he knocked my feet
Wi gliffs a wes awake / With a fright I was awakened
All through the night
Divent drive me bonny dreams away Geordie lad
Keep ya feet still

Had ya pesch no Geordie hinny / Hold your mouth George my friend
Keep frem yakkin through tha neet / Stop talking through the night
Give us that bit comfort
Had ya gob now Geordie lad / Please restrain your verbal utterances
All through the night
Divvent drive me bonny dreams away
Track Name: Shri
If you've never had a broken heart
I'd tell you but I don't know where to start
You're looking down the barrel of a gun
Who shoots you only when you think you've won
If you've never ever been in love before
I'd tell you but I'd open up the door
They treat you like they think you're really cool
You end up feeling like a broken fool

Hold tight, got my happy head on tonight
Mine's the universe in a perfect verse
Then we're laughing like the lovers do
Contain us, restrain us, we're troubadours to the core
Confound us and hound us, we are falling
Straight back down to the earth into the sound

If you're looking for the love in fellow man
Maybe you think it's gone down the pan
But don't you think when all is said and done
We're spinning like an eight ball 'round the sun
So dance my friend we may not have too long
Love it now for it may well be gone
Looking for the answers from above
Don't look now you know it must be love
Track Name: Why
Ponioi se / He was carried away
Zanio se / He was caught up
U svoj visok nam / In his own higher world
Što on lujbi sultaniju / Because he loves the wife of the sultan
Sultan zulejhu / Sultan Zulejhu
Kaži zulko / Let's say zulko
Kaži dušo / Let's say soul
Šta sam tebi ja / What am I to you
Ti si zulko / You are zulko
Alem žarko sunče / Precious stone the burning sun
Što nam si ja / That lights us up
Track Name: Flying Dragon
Chase me to the bridge
With your flaming torches
Igor get the flaming torches
Speak your monologue
With your evil cackling
Throw me to the dogs

Since you've gone I'm crying constantly
My tears are falling, dripping down like rain
If by chance I could capture your heart in a rapture
Twiddle my moustache, fall into my arms

you will have me howling at the moon
Clip on my lead I am your goon
I'll change by drinking tinctures of Beelzebub
Give me your vampire love
Hear me howling shackled in my tower
Just like the lightning you're my power
Come throw my switch again
And charge my dynamo
You set my bulbs aglow

Shield me with your cape
You know your eyes are glowing
Don't you know your fangs are showing
Tie me to the track
And when the train is coming I'll twiddle my moustache
