Track Name: Hideaway (Karen O cover)
Hideaway
Well they'll seat us in the sun
By the way
Know you've always been the one

You'll ask your reasons why
What once was yours is mine
My baby's gone

Ride away
Gonna take me from my man
By the way
No they'll never understand

We'll have a bit of fun
Watching everyone pass us by

You'll ask your reason why
What once was yours is mine
My baby's gone

Hideaway
Well they'll seat us in the sun
By the way
Know you've always been the one

You'll ask your reasons why
What once was yours is mine
My baby's gone
Track Name: Folk On (piano version)
The walls outside are sweating dew,
bags of wry smiles are what we have.
We’re stuck inside, we’ve got
We’ve gotta get out of this place,
We must raise the roof
We will grab these days

Town trains look like toys
that might be your pride and joy
The river creeps on your way
Gently shuffling pigs on parade

There is a home
where nothing hurts,
twelve-string hearts chime,
and trumpeter girls,
they lead the path.
Don’t know where it’s at
sure it’s not here
so folks let’s go far, come on

Chances are you hear the whistle
Chances are you will not even listen
It dawned on me, it’s plain to
see that it’s grown by leaps and bounds
Folk on, catch your wave
Please don’t you be late

Town trains look like toys
that might be your pride and joy
The river creeps on your way
Gently shuffling pigs on parade

There is a home
where nothing hurts,
twelve-string hearts chime,
and trumpeter girls,
they lead the path.
Don’t know where it’s at
sure it’s not here
so folks let’s go further ‘n’ worry only about things that matter
... about things that matter
Track Name: Iron Hand (Dire Straits cover)
With all the clarity of dream
The sky so blue, the grass so green
The rank and file and the navy blue
The deep and strong, the straight and true

The blue line they got the given sign
The belts and boots marched forward in time
The wood and the leather the club and shield
Swept like a wave across the battlefield

Now with all the clarity of dream
The blood so red, the grass so green
The gleam of spur on the chestnut flank
The cavalry did burst upon the ranks

Oh the iron will and the iron hand
In England's green and pleasant land
No music for the shameful scene
That night they said it had even shocked the queen

Well alas we've seen it all before
Knights in armour, days of yore
The same old fears and the same old crimes
We haven't changed since ancient times
Track Name: My Fondly Fahrenheit (Video Edit)
You can be these tides you don’t trust
In the morning, after
the changing of the guards
and all the laughter

He can be these hands, moon and milk,
just right before you
hold aloft the trophy
Let’s murmur softly:

We can be carefully laid out, paralyzed,
above the sea
And you, you bursting into flames,
be our juggler slumped over the waves

You can be our midfielder, yes you can
(Slumped over the waves)
You play the game the right way, yes you do
(Slumped over the rules)

You can be these books you can’t read
In the evening, after
the animals awake
and the fences fracture

She can be queen, phone operator,
in a foreign language
only you can speak,
my sleeping driver

We can be carefully laid out, paralyzed,
above the sea
And you, you bursting into flames,
be our juggler slumped over the waves

You can be our midfielder, yes you can
(Slumped over the waves)
You play the game the right way, yes you do
(Slumped over the rules)
