Track Name: Into the Wild
I'm disconnecting, turning back and descending
To see the world from a new point of view.
With no one to call one, no one to help me,
I won't even know how to get hold of you.
When I need the answers to the difficult questions,
Maybe I should have written them down,
But if I'm resourceful, and if I'm tenacious,
Maybe I'll learn to find my way 'round.

I am going on walkabout, I don't know if I'll ever get home.
I am going on walkabout, with no provisions, all on my own.

Into the wild, with nothing but the will to survive.
Into the wild, with no one here to keep me alive.

Living our lives with the things we rely on,
Things we rely on can suddenly break.
Now I'll see who I am, I'll see what I'm made of,
See if I've really got what it takes
To go out in the open, in the face of some danger,
Laying it all out there on the line
Without any humans, though I think that they're out there,
If only someone would give me a sign.

I am going on walkabout, I don't know if I'll ever get home.
I am going on walkabout, with no provisions, all on my own.

Into the wild, with nothing but the will to survive.
Into the wild, with no one here to keep me alive.
Into the wild, with nothing but the will to survive.
Into the wild, with no one here to keep me alive.

I am going on walkabout, I don't know if I'll ever get home.
I am going on walkabout, with no provisions, all on my own.

Into the wild, with nothing but the will to survive.
Into the wild, with no one here to keep me alive.
Into the wild, with nothing but the will to survive.
Into the wild, with no one here to keep me alive.
Into the wild...
Into the wild...
Track Name: Lose My Mind
In my darkest days I would dream of the sea
With the light on the sand and you next to me
But if I cross this ocean and I pray that I do
It is gonna take me farther and farther from you

We fell in love on a tropical beach, but London suits me fine.
If nothing else were to happen to me, this is where I’d want to lose my mind…
Where I’d want to lose my mind.

It is not for the country it is not for the queen,
I’ve just got to get back to the heart of the scene.
Those days we had were like nothing on earth,
And I couldn’t even tell you what the memories are worth

We fell in love on a tropical beach, but London suits me fine.
If nothing else were to happen to me, this is where I’d want to lose my mind.
We fell in love on a tropical beach, but London suits me fine.
If nothing else were to happen to me, this is where I’d want to lose my mind.

And now we are a thousand miles apart,
And those days we had are all long gone.
And now we are a thousand miles apart,
And I want to let you know that I’m moving on.

We fell in love on a tropical beach, but London suits me fine.
If nothing else were to happen to me, this is where I’d want to lose my mind.
We fell in love on a tropical beach, but London suits me fine.
If nothing else were to happen to me, this is where I’d want to lose my mind.
I’m gonna lose my mind.
Track Name: Angelina
Stop, stop looking for sympathy
And clouding your judgment in ecstasy
When she starts selling her fantasy
She’ll make the world stand still

But this is such a discrepancy
Last night was nothing but memories
When she starts selling her fantasy
She'll make all time stand still-and you paid

Cause you feel so alive
Cause you feel so alive, alive again
But it’s all in your head
Cause it’s only pretend

Angelina, don’t believe her it will only bring you down
Angelina, don’t believe, don’t believe a word don’t believe a sound

So stop, stop looking for sympathy
And clouding your judgment in ecstasy
When she starts selling her fantasy
She’ll make the world stand still-and you paid

Cause you feel so alive
Cause you feel so alive, alive again
But it’s all in your head
Cause it’s only pretend

Angelina, don’t believe her it will only bring you down
Angelina, don’t believe, don’t believe a word don’t believe a sound
Angelina, don’t believe her it will only bring you down
Angelina, don’t believe, don’t believe a word don’t believe a . . .

Cause you feel so alive
Cause you feel so alive, alive again
But it’s all in your head
Cause it’s only pretend

Angelina . . . if you want heaven she'll take you there
Angelina . . . stop, stop bringing him down, stop bringing him down
Angelina . . . she'll make you feel so alive, make you feel so alive
Angelina . . . if you want heaven she'll take you there
Take you there
Track Name: God Save the King
Desperate times are approaching
Beatlemania’s come undone
Ziggy has fled to Hamburg
And Sammy has purchased his guns

Blue Hawaii is over now
And disco is at our front door
All the kids in the streets have gone
To the club out on 54th

In their polyester shirts
And their Travolta suits and ties
They’re taking all we hold sacred
And they're hanging it out to die

Ring the bells, tell the people
His majesty has fallen
And the torch will be passing
100 punks are calling

The Heads are at CBGB’s
In the UK it’s Strummer and Jones
Then there is Mr. Rotten out
With a few dozen of his punk clones

Blue Hawaii is over now
And disco is at our front door
All the kids in the streets are gone
And they’re dancing at ‘54

And on a Memphis summer
Crying ‘God save the King’
In mourning the death of rock n ‘roll
A thousand of them all sing

Ring the bells, tell the people
His majesty has fallen
And the torch will be passing
100 punks are calling

He’s fallen down, he’s fallen down
His majesty has fallen
He’s fallen down, he’s fallen down
Off the Graceland throne

But they’re crying out, they’re crying out ‘God Save the King’
They’re crying out, they’re crying out ‘God Save the King’
They’re crying out, they’re crying out ‘God Save the King’
They’re crying out, they’re crying out ‘Go kill the disco Queen’
Yeah

Oh they’re crying out, they’re crying out ‘God Save the King’
They’re crying out, they’re crying out ‘God Save the King’
