James English Beefcake

I wish I could create myself

A cool machine designed to help

Not always hurting

Just plug me in and do the rounds

Impress your friends

Save yourself pounds

I’ll not be wanting

I wish that things could be that way

But every dog must have its say

The orchestra’s tuning

I understand your suffering

I felt the same sting in my heart

That’s why I’m singing

Drifting away as lovers do

Heads you win and tails I lose

Nothing to say

much less to do

Unhappy me unhappy you

I know you want it all to end

Transform a love into a friend

Magicians can do

Gut feelings come

Gut feelings go

Like rivers we have no control

They just keep flowing

Yeah, I wish I could create myself

A cool machine or someone else

A lot less knowing

Drifting away as lovers do

Heads you win

And tails I lose

Nothing to say

Much less to do

Unhappy me

Unhappy you

Love can heal

And love can sting

Heads you lose

And tails I win

Unhappy me

Unhappy you

Nothing to say

And much less to do

There’s nothing to say

I get in the way

Unable to break obsession

There’s nothing to say

I get in the way

Still unable to break obsession

James Honest Joe

Honest joe

Screws the lamb

Indian call

Indian plan

Weight of gold

You’re a gay

Catch your life

Catch your life

Messerschmidt

You’re a ghoul

Hurricane, hurricane

Novatol, novaciane

Dexadrin, dexadrin, opium

It’s the way way you break down all your food

It’s the way you comb your hair

It’s the way you wear the tie so crooked

The way you have that smile that smells of despair

It’s the way you like to satisfy

The way you set the smile

The way you crawled into my life and stayed there for a while

It’s the way you like to lick your paws

The way you screw the bolts

The way you groom your friends and neighbours

The way you get a cause

Novacaine, makes us smile

Novacaine, no one can

I know where

It’s a gun

It’s a dream of a christian marytrdom

Move your way

Do your spin

Get a dish, get a dish and spin

Totempole, it’s my goal

I don’t care where you’re gonna take it from

James Porcupine

Knock, knock, knock, my house is always open

Why shield myself with quills and feints and lies?

I can put on quite a show, but inside I’m broken

Porcupine, porcupine

Here it comes again

Here it comes again

Here it comes again

Please don’t stop, you’ll get past my defenses

My body armor’s plated all the time

I got away with it once, but I soon became addicted

Porcupine, porcupine

At the edge of the world

Leave my things by the door

I surrender control

Diving into the fall

At the edge of the world

Leave my things by the door

I surrender control

Diving into the fall

Here it comes again

Here it comes again

Here it comes again

On my back, the weight of my offenses

You’re a skunk and I’m a porcupine

Our weaponry’s evolved from heightened senses

Porcupine, porcupine

At the edge of the world

Leave my things by the door

I surrender control

Diving into the fall

At the edge of the world

Leave my things by the door

I surrender control

Diving into the fall

Here it comes again

Here it comes again

Here it comes again

James Fairground

Why is it always, when I open my mouth

I clash with whatever you do

When we dance together your rhythm and tempo

Cuts through my quick step and tune

You cry, I, I, can’t take anymore

But you can’t find the bloody door

Oh you might think we’re free

‘Til we slip back into memory

We’re joined by a purpose that will not release us

‘Til we have come to some terms

Some love and acceptance, not hate and repentance

These skills are things to be learned

You cry, I, I, can’t take anymore

But you can’t find the bloody door

Oh you might think we’re free

‘Til we slip back into memory

I love you so

I’m stuck, can’t you let go

Let’s try again

This time we will be friends

I cannot change

All my tracks have been laid

Playin’ the game

It’s just, it’s just a memory

Lost in memory

Here’s to memory

James Of Monsters & Heroes & Men

Stray cats with fish heads, feeding their litters

Feral kids fight over rats, tailed from gutters

Bookie mouth brokers, rotten fruit sellers

Pickpockets, ghost through the crowd

He climbs onto boxes by market stall traders

Toothless and gray haired, thousand yard stare

He had a vision which broke the receiver

Receiving transmission, surface to air

Either way, I’m in awe of you

Either way, we’ll survive

Conjuring devils, angels and demons

Only the children see shape to his tone

Laughing and crying, his song fell upon us

We buried his treasure along with his bones

Arms held aloft, away to the sky

Innocent witness, he testified

Drained of his purpose, he falls off the quayside

Absorbed by the ocean, rolled by the tide

Either way, I’m in awe of you

Either way, we’ll survive

Either way, I’m in awe of you

Either way, we’ll survive, we’ll survive

Under the power lines which crackle and sparkle

Under the freeway, now, mostly rubble

The hungry still gather to fill up with stories

Of monsters and heroes and men

Under the stars, which prick us and call us

Connect us to hope that perfection’s within

Is here on the ground, we’re reckless and hopeless

Damned by the slip of a pen

Rambling poets, manic with vision

We are the drivers, yet we feel driven

Moths in the moonlight, fooled by a flashlight

Caught in a jam jar, gasping for air

Rambling poets, manic with vision

We are the drivers, yet we feel driven

Moths in the moonlight, fooled by a flashlight

Caught in a jam jar, gasping for air

Rambling poets, manic with vision

We are the drivers, yet we feel driven

Moths in the moonlight, fooled by a flashlight

Caught in a jam jar, gasping for air

Rambling poets, manic with vision

We are the drivers, yet we feel driven

Moths in the moonlight, fooled by a flashlight

Caught in a jam jar, gasping for air

Either way, I’m in awe of you

Either way, we’ll survive, we’ll survive

James Gaudi

God’s dead

This state is torture

Find me shade

And bring me water

Holding on

I’m thirsty for your sage

Back at the ranch

I just got slaughtered

Too many shoves

Too many orders

Better come out

Holding on to faith

Let the sun begin to shine through your night

Let the light reveal disguise in your life

Let the sun begin to shine through your night

Let the light reveal disguise in your life

Work kills

It’s killing me slowly

And what is the point in being so holy?

Who do you love?

Who do you love above all?

If you want to live some life

Get slaughtered

They’d sell their sons and daughters

Who do you love?

Who do you love above all?

How can we fail

Less we really want to

Under the spell of some local voodoo curse

We can change our fate

Let the sun begin to shine through your night

Let the light reveal disguise in your life

Let the sun begin to shine through your night

Let the light reveal disguise in your life

Let the sun begin to shine through your night

Let the light reveal disguise in your life

Let the sun begin to shine through your night

Let the light reveal disguise in your life

James Semaphore

I may as well try semaphore

As words no longer work

This fool’s feeling cornered

And he acted like a jerk

He’d tell you he was sorry

If that made good the hurt

It’s too late now for sorry

It’s too late now for words

We survive despite our desire to stray

Hell to pay, thought you knew my desires

It’s innate, it’s not going away

I hope you’re not going away

It’s a question of convenience

How pain, with time, will fade

Surrendered to acceptance

Dark night gives way to day

It was meant to be a gesture

That mark across your face

It’s too late now for sorry

It’s too late now for grace

We survive despite our desire to stray

Hell to pay, thought you knew my desires

It’s innate, it’s not going away

Hell to pay, thought you knew

Hell to pay, thought you knew

Thought you knew, thought you knew

James P.S.

You’re a weapon of devotion

Keep the faithful entertained

You’re a lover of attention

Found a way to pawn the soul

Disposition may be fetching

But the world moves on and leaves you far behind

I hear you, I hear you, whispering such gorgeous stories

I see you, I see you, trying to break free

You liar, you liar, you can’t live the dreams you’re spinning

You liar, love to be deceived

You’re falling, you’re falling, falling from your god-like distance

You’re fashion, just fashion, fashion doesn’t keep

You’re sour, so sour, all is hope and trust is misplaced

You’re sour, now you are alone

Walking on fire, feel the way the world’s inclining

Walking on fire, hate to deceive

Walking on fire, now the world will keep its distance

Walking on fire, you rather than me

My son says, dear father, what did you do when the world turned over

Keep spinning, keep spinning, send us off to sleep

You liar, you liar, all your words are just dust in moonshine

You liar, love to be deceived

Walking on fire, found a place away from humans

Walking on fire, hate to deceive

Walking on fire, now the world will keep its distance

Walking on fire, you rather than me

James Just Like Fred Astaire

Doctor, what is happening to me?

Palpitations, my mind’s diseased

Even my vision is impaired

I’m losing my hair

‘Cause when I hold her in my arms

I feel like Fred Astaire

Lovesick, my temperature’s high

Just met a girl who believes we can fly

I’m a bull, not a bear

I’m a millionaire

‘Cause when I hold her in my arms

I feel like Fred Astaire

I believe in happiness

I believe in love

I believe she fell to earth

From somewhere high above

I believe in Hollywood

Don’t believe that love must bring despair

‘Cause when I hold her in my arms

I feel like Fred Astaire

You say love is just a disease

A plague for the naive

These days, no-one believes

Meteors may strike the earth

Nations live and die

I’m the boy who got the girl

And now we’re gonna fly

We can cross the race divide

Bridge a gap that wasn’t really there

‘Cause when I hold her in my arms

I feel like Fred Astaire

I’m gonna hold her in my arms

Just like Fred Astaire

I’m gonna hold her in these charms

Like Fred Astaire

(My goodness, the water’s rising)

Like Fred Astaire

(My goodness, the water’s rising)

Like Fred Astaire

James Basic Brian

Dream, dreams floating down again

Surround your mind

Soft cloud, take me around again

On your rain

My dreams tell me everything

Surprise around

Call out your name

I need help again

Folow love’s brigade

What you was, said is sure

Running on the seventh floor

Do it all, let it slide

Breathe yourself goodbye

See it all through the wall

Living outside again

Need a long way to go

Said you

Our escape

I died, when you fall again

Safe arms at last

I love feeling small again

All around, satisfied
