Track Name: A holiday in the sun
The phenylenalene will make you feel good
Not to mention the theobromine
Its not quite as intense as caffeine.
..and then of course theres the magnesium
most important for calming you down
it always gives a smile for a frown

fair trade chocolate is good for your soul
no need to feel like a guilty asshole
playing the slaves, first time history
no need to live their life on their knees

Its about time the west gives it back
Fair Trade chocolate will pick up the slack
its good for them and its good for you too
who knows you just might be buying them shoes

or a holiday in the sun
Track Name: Invisible Orchestra
I love having you around the place like a tin of paints
It aint what you think, I could be gone in a blink
and you'll be singing bye bye bye bye
I won't wait till later, I want you now now now
Im waiting just to see your face
It could be any day now

If this happiness were a third entity
I would bottle it and sell it to the world
I was writing the next line
when you texted me and now i'll never know what it says
If it doesn't come to me soon ill just have to make your text the chorus
instead
it said -
I saw you conducting an Invisable Orchestra as you were
pacing up and down in your room
i thought you must've had a crystal ball or a
camera with a telescopic zoom

In your minds eye you saw the night I should be having
One that would have made Amedeus envious in his grave
with so many machines at my fingertips
so many songs to capture and save
You're me connection to the outside world
the collective unconscious, the spiritual world
when I can't reach into me

..and all i know is, it was Fun in the Sun
and you looked good with nothing on

If you tell me the chorus
I will write you the song
and in time time time time
I'm sure that we will both learn to play along
in time time time time

I love having you around the place
I'm waiting just to see your face
I love having you around the place
I'm waiting just to see your face
I love having you around the place
I'm waiting just to see your face
Track Name: The Fight for Our Lives (for Vita)
no words just feelings
Track Name: My body's heavy while her soul's in flight
Alone
alone
alone again

Alone again like I was
My body's heavy while her soul's in flight
Track Name: Invisible Orchestra (Acoustic version)
I love having you around the place (like a tin of paint?)
It aint what you think, I could be gone in a blink
and you'll be singing bye bye bye bye
I won't wait till later, I want you now now now
Im waiting just to see your face
It could be any day now

Track Name: The Contract
The contract (written by A.H.Benthe)

Well, hey there A& R
you looking for some clay to mold
well, you could sign anyone
but the real test is the road

Hey mr record company executive, lets talk shop
you've got some acts you have to drop
When you made your cash the market was open wide
but now things are getting cluttered and its time for you to
swallow your pride

Its time to admt we do as much for you as you do for us
and we need a few things, you know, like radio and a touring bus
Now the more that you promote us, the more we will sell for you

The fatter cats
the fatter the cats
the fatter the fat cats get
the fatter the fat cats get
the fatter the fat cats get
the more milk for new cash-cows

But you'll have to read our contract
between the lines
...
because when you put it simply
the words are all just lies
...
so you sign, on our terms
your blood on the dotted line
you can take notes
and well take our time

Radio, video, our artistic control
leave us alone when it comes to that which is our own
your part is getting us booked on the highest bill
you'll smell the money when you listen and get the chills

period forever
territory the world
exclusive licence - for the term (until the stock is sold)
feeling game today my friend
together till the bitter end
lots of fax's for you to send
