Track Name: Monopoly
Two weeks in the aftershock
I'll never love another though
You saved my life
I know I'm losing out
It's just another sacrifice
So roll the dice
So soon comes the afternoon
I sat here drinking up the moon
Love was just holding on
To something precious , sacred
Til we died
One more time

(Chorus)
Ooh we take what we can get
Turn lovers for regret
It's just like playing Monopoly
Ooh we shake it all apart
Cry murder in the dark
It's just like playing Monopoly

So you stay damaged goods
But I still know the game
And all it's bitter truths
We hang in public slaughter
Horses running to the water
So soon comes the afternoon
We sat here drinking up the moon
Love was just holding on
Til someone , something better came along
Now you're gone

(Chorus)
Ooh we take what we can get
Turn lovers for regret
It's just like playing Monopoly
Ooh we shake it all apart
Cry murder in the dark
It's just like playing Monopoly



And I don't wanna steal your crown away
And I don't wanna steal your crown away…

(Chorus)
Ooh we take what we can get
Turn lovers for regret
It's just like playing Monopoly
Ooh we shake it all apart
Cry murder in the dark
It's just like playing Monopoly



Steal your crown away……..
Track Name: Love In England
The big bells chime as you ride the tube alone
I can't stop thinking that I left you on your own
In the city you can meet Jack the ripper
Or fall in love with the beauty and the litter
Ah ah ah

(Chorus)
Oh woh woh
Love In England
Oh woh woh
Love In England

Desperation If only you could feel it
Your body's numb and your mind is trying to kill it
Come on come on honey
I want to take you back
To the lizard Queen and the bars
I want to jack
Ah ah ah

(Chorus)
Oh woh woh
Love In England (don't get lost in the city tonight)
Oh woh woh
Love In England (don't get lost in the city tonight)
If you go now will I love you less (don't go walking)
Where you are now I can only guess
Ah ah ah
Oh woh woh
Love In England

The frost
The stain
The neon rain
The push
The shove
The hand in glove
The girl who lost her way back home
The boy you met at the Hippodrome

The big bells chime as you ride the tube alone
(I got lost and I payed the price)
I can't stop thinking that I left you on your own
(I got lost and I payed the price)
In the city you can meet Jack the ripper
Or fall in love with the beauty and the litter

(Chorus)
Oh woh woh
Love In England (don't get lost in the city tonight)
Oh woh woh
Love In England (don't get lost in the city tonight)
If you go now will I love you less (don't go walking)
Where you are now I can only guess
Ah ah ah
Oh woh woh
Love In England
Track Name: West Of Mars
Standing on the shoulder
Of an eagle in the golden sun
Riding on the canyon of the lonely
We become as one
You were lost in fantasies
The dreams that never came to be
By the time the sand falls through
You were me and I was you

(Chorus)
And we all got to be somebody
And we all got to need somebody
And we all got to lose somebody

Standing on the shoulder
Of the eagle and the hourglass
Shining on the shoreline of the bitterness
Becomes the past
You were drowned in ecstasy
The dreams you lost and gave to me
By the time the sky falls blue
You are me and I am you

(Chorus)
And we all got to be somebody (west of Mars)
And we all got to need somebody (west of Mars)
And we all got to leave somebody (west of Mars)
Oh oh oh oh oh oh

You told me that the angels are out of reach now
You sat me in the church of the devils playground
You told me that the angels are out of reach now
You sat me in the church of the devils playground
I caught on

(Chorus)
And we all got to be somebody
And we all got to need somebody
And we all got to leave somebody
And we all got to be somebody (west of Mars)
And we all got to need somebody (west of Mars)
And we all got to lose somebody (west of Mars)

I got this feeling I'm gonna stay
Nothing left to lose I'd say
Sombre boots can't walk the moon
Golden dawns forgotten soon
I got a supernova on my back
Not much of this but I got a lot of that
Keep your divisions
Throw them on the pyre
I took a trip the planet of fire

West of Mars
West of Mars
West of Mars
Track Name: Enchained
The distant lover's song
Has played on through tonight
We carved a narrow path
A prisoner from the light
And with my empty kiss
That's forgotten you
With one hand on your gun
I asked you not to do
But you did it

(Chorus)
Ooh you've got me enchained
Don't know where I should go
And you've got me enchained
Don't know why but I love you so
I love you so

The house of wax has bled
And melted on the floor
The shattered picture frames
The children of the war
I didn't say a word
Your car drove off in the snow
How can our endless shame
Have anywhere left to go
But you did it

(Chorus)
Ooh you've got me enchained
Don't know where I should go
And you've got me enchained
Don't know why but I love you so
I love you so
Oh Oh

(For we'll never go down)
And if the ghosts come marching home
(For we'll never drown)
I'll love you maybe
(for we'll never go down)
The candle burns just a flicker baby
(For we'll never drown)
And if I ever loved you was it just as much
You hurt so much

(Chorus)
Ooh you've got me enchained
Don't know where I should go
And you've got me enchained
Don't know why but I love you so
I love you so
