Track Name: Blue Pool
Blue Pool
© 2007 Neil Porter

Well I’m packing up the wagon
Time to do some camping by the sea
It’s ninety ks to Paradise
Ninety ks from nowhere you and me

Well we’re heading up to Bermie
We’ll find a beach that isn’t far away
The water temp’s been falling
You couldn’t get this man in there, no way

Blue Pool
Warmer than the ocean
Blue Pool
Quite the place to be
Blue Pool
Poetry in motion
Blue Pool
Hangin’ in the sun sounds fine to me
Fine to me
Fine to me
Blue Pool

INSTRUMENTAL

Blue Pool
Warmer than the ocean
Blue Pool
Quite the place to be
Blue Pool
Poetry in motion
Blue Pool
Hangin’ in the sun sounds fine to me Fine to me
Fine to me
Blue Pool

We’re hangin’ around the harbour
Fishing boats they loiter in the bay
Moto Guzzi mayhem
80 years and clearly here to stay

Gelato by the seaside
Get to taste the ones you want for free
Talk of Rome and Vespas
Just about as cool as you can be
Track Name: Boozer Blues
Well it’s half past four and I’m all alone
I’ve got a head full of turkey and half a bone
It’s got me stuffed what happened last night
But by the look of my face it was a damn good fight

I’m sad - and I’m sorry
I’m bad - I’m a worry
Just let me lay down on the floor
And I swear to you - I wont drink no more

I’m sit’n pick’n gravel out’a my knees
I’m as sick as a dog and my dog’s got fleas
My mouth smells like a cocky’s cage
That’s the last time I go out and rage

I’m sad - and I’m sorry
I’m bad - I’m a worry
Just let me lay down on the floor
And I swear to you - I wont drink no more

There’s a strange sort of ringin’ in my ears
And the air I’m passin’ smells like beer
Gotta get it together and get some food
Because I think I’m sufferin’ the Boozer Blues

Track Name: Cold Black Heart
Cold Black Heart
©2014 Neil Porter

You've got your evil eyes
You tear my world apart
I've had my nights of sighs
I don't know where to start

Don't want your evil eyes
Don't want your cold black heart
Don't want your web of lies
Don't want your cold black heart

You're on the other side
No need to get in line
You take me for a ride
Not gonna work this time

Don't want your evil eyes
Don't want your cold black heart
Don't want your web of lies
Don't want your cold black heart

Give to the rich, take from the poor
Don’t want you hangin’ round
One day I’ll see them put you
Down in the cold cold ground

Don't want your evil eyes
Don't want your cold black heart
Don't want your web of lies
Don't want your cold black heart

You wouldn't be here now
Without your web of lies
You wouldn't be here now
Without your web of lies
Track Name: DIY Salvation
DIY Salvation E

I fix my eyes on
The far horizon
What I see’s not good
It frightens me

Myself, I’ll get through
My children might too
After them, so grim
The chances slim

Counter futility
Take responsibility
Do not rely
On those in charge

Don’t rely
On the guys
At the top

Don’t depend
They won’t defend
Your children

Rhetoric and conjecture
Will not protect you
You must take action
now

Don’t trust the powers
In final hours
They’ll throw your children
Overboard

Don’t depend
They won’t defend
The earth

Pie in the sky
To rely on
The top

You pray to Gods
That’s just bad odds
There’s no-one there to
Fix things up

Don’t trust the churches
Don’t trust the nations
They’re all corrupted
Corporations

Don’t depend
They won’t defend
Your future

Watch their behaviour
They’re not your saviour
You’re collateral

Take up the clear view
You’ll see it’s just you
Can give your grandchildren
a chance

You are the answer
To stop earth’s cancer
You must think how
You must act now

It’s not funny
They just want your money
You don’t count

Pie in the sky
To rely
On the top

Don’t be a sucker
They don’t give a fuck a
‘Bout you !

Track Name: I'm Out There Somewhere
I’M OUT THERE SOMEWHERE (lyrics Peter Reid ©2011)

I AM OUT THERE SOMEWHERE
JUST NEED TO FIND A PLACE WHERE I CAN FIND OUT WHO I AM

THERE’S A PLACE SOMEWHERE, I CAN FIND OUT WHO I AM
SORT IT OUT ALL BY MYSELF, FIND MY PROMISED LAND
THERE’S A PLACE SOMEWHERE, I CAN FIND OUT WHO I AM

DRIVING UP THE PRINCE’S HIGHWAY
NOT SURE WHERE I’M GOIN
LOOKIN FOR A PLACE TO CHILL
FIND AN OFFSHORE BLOWIN
THERE’S A PLACE SOMEWHERE, I CAN FIND OUT WHO I AM

HAD A MORTGAGE, HAD A JOB
HAD A WEDDING RING
I FOUND OUT THE HARD WAY
THAT WASN’T REALLY HER THING
THERE’S A PLACE SOMEWHEREI CAN FIND OUT WHO I AM

I’VE GOT MY DOG, GOT MY DRUMS
GOT MY SURFBOARD YEH
GOIN TO FIND MYSELF A PLACE
A LONG LONG WAY FROM HER
THERE’S A PLACE SOMEWHERE, I CAN FIND OUT WHO I AM

SOMEWHERE UP THAT HIGHWAY
THERE’S A PLACE JUST RIGHT
RIDE THE WAVES THROUGH THE DAY
PLAY MUSIC THROUGH THE NIGHT

THERE’S A PLACE SOMEWHERE I CAN FIND OUT WHO I AM
SORT IT OUT ALL BY MYSELF
FIND MY PROMISED LAND
Track Name: Lifeline w Sasha Dee
LIFELINE
(©2010 Gus Washbourne)

Don’t just stand there, throw me a lifeline
Your love’s like quicksand suckin’ me down
Don’t just stand there, throw me a lifeline
Put me back where I was before love came to town

I been a Iot of places with a Iot of nice guys like you
But no one sucks my blood like you do
I can’t even have a beer on my own
Without you having a whinge and a moan

Don ‘t just stand there throw me a lifeline
I can feel my life force slippin’ away
Don’t just stand there, throw me a lifeline
Give me one good reason why I should stay

You sit in your chair like you don ‘t really care, abusing
That’s something I don’t find very amusing
I know I’m not perfect but I tried really hard for you
But that didn’t work and I don’t know what to do

Please let me go let me out of your life
I can’t be your lover and I won’t be your wife
We just fight together and we’re happy apart
Let me go from here and make a new start

Sex ain’t the solution it feels like prostitution to me
If your gonna give your love you’ve got to give it for free
It‘s a lifetime commitment not a casual thing I need
So darlin’ let me go don ‘t make me bleed

Don’t just stand there, throw me a lifeline
I can feel my life force slippin’ away

REPEAT x2

Track Name: Mad Hatter - 2010
Mad Hatter
©2010 Neil Porter

I’ve been watching how you wear your skin
I’ve been checking out the state you’re in
I’ve been waiting ‘til you drop your guard
Looking out for the Queen of Hearts

Mad Hatter – Tea Party
Mad Hatter – Tea Party

I’ve been waiting for the coin to drop
I’ve been waiting for the fun to stop
I’ve been thinking there’s no end to this
Watch you swim in your ignorant bliss

Mad Hatter – Tea Party
Mad Hatter – Tea Party

“Rite me a sine” and show me the way
My Cheshire smile might give the game away

I’ve been watching as you drain your glass
I’ve been waiting for this phase to pass
Can’t believe that you can look so cool
Hanging out with all those tea party fools?

Mad Hatter – Tea Party
Mad Hatter – Tea Party
Track Name: No Relief In Sight - 2010
No Relief In Sight
©2010 Neil Porter

There’s a hole in the roof
Where the rain gets in
Can’t get to sleep at night
A hole in my heart
Where the pain gets in
And there’s no relief in sight
He’s got a hole in his heart
And there’s no relief in sight
A hole in his heart
And there’s no relief in sight

The ground’s been shaking
Things are not the same
Mama this can’t be right
The earth’s been quaking
Might do it again
Mama please put this right
He’s got a hole in his heart
And there’s no relief in sight
A hole in his heart
And there’s no relief in sight

You get used to the high life
Ride high in the saddle
And you have a good time
Middle of the lake
Without any paddle
Just have a good time

Hold that rhythm
Hold it tight
Don’t turn it off
Til the time is right
Don’t stop shaking
Shake it right
Shake it, shake it
All through the night
He’s got a hole in his heart
And there’s no relief in sight
A hole in his heart
And there’s no relief in sight

Never believed in Heaven
Didn’t believe a lot
Never did notice
The warning sign
Didn’t hear the warning shot
He’s got a hole in his heart
And there’s no relief in sight
A hole in his heart
And there’s no relief in sight

You get used to the high life
Ride high in the saddle
And you have a good time
Middle of the lake
Without any paddle
Just have a good time

Afficianados may notice that I'm using regular chords here for a change - that's why I included them :)

It came out of nothing
Wasn’t something you said
No kind of a warning
There’s no voice in my head
I’m out here and stranded
It’s a quandary I’m in
Feeling disbanded
Tied up and branded

I’ve got no illusions
Got no axe to grind
I’m full of confusion
Of the worrying kind

Fishing for compliments
Never know where to look
Got a line in the water
But no bait on the hook
I’m out here and stranded
It’s a quandary I’m in
Feeling disbanded
Tied up and branded

I’ve got no illusions
Got no axe to grind
I’m full of confusion
Of the worrying kind

Need to change the equation
Need to pick at the lock
Too much time on my hands
While I run down the clock
I’m out here and stranded
It’s a quandary I’m in
Feeling disbanded
Tied up and branded

I’ve got no illusions
Got no axe to grind
I’m full of confusion
Of the worrying kind

SHY AND RETIRING
Raymond Toms © 2012

All of my life, I’ve been Shy and Retiring
Always looked smart, never let my hair down
At parties you’d find me, locked in the bathroom
To the girls, I was just a sad clown
CHORUS (harmonies)
Shy and Retiring, not getting ahead
Shy and Retiring, alone in my bed

I started a job, and I wore my best suit
I’d abide by the rules, always waiting in line
I watched as the others, got ahead of the queue
And they all seemed, to get on just fine

Shy and Retiring, not getting ahead
Shy and Retiring, alone in my bed

Soon the bullies moved on, and no one was left there
Who knew how to do things, make sure it was done.
The bosses they noticed, that ‘Shy and Retiring’
Was better, than guys who had gone

Shy and Retiring, not getting ahead
Shy and Retiring, alone in my bed

Shy and Retiring? I’ve finished ahead
Shy and Retiring? My wife in my bed
Shy and Retiring? Don’t care about cash
Shy and Retiring? Got a pension to stash
Track Name: Snake Oil
Snake Oil
©2016 Neil Porter

Mean Mr Mustard
Got his foot in the door
I don’t understand
What you opened it for
Drop your guard
And he’ll walk right in
Oozing that snake oil
On everything

Chorus:
Snake oil, snake oil
Come and get your snake oil
And you’ll stay alive
Til a hundred and ten
Snake oil, snake oil
Buy my fine snake oil
Gonna make you richer
Than you’ve ever been

Mass hypnosis
Wild tirade
He’s got all the skills
Of the snake oil trade
Big on slogans
Small on hands
Gonna make America
Snake again

Snake oil, snake oil
Come and get your snake oil
And you’ll stay alive
Til a hundred and ten
Snake oil, snake oil
Buy my fine snake oil
Gonna make you richer
Than you’ve ever been

Money on the counter
He’ll give us all a case
Snake oil man
In a snake oil race
Drop your guard
And he’ll walk right in
Oozing that snake oil
On everything

Snake oil, snake oil
Come and get your snake oil
And you’ll stay alive
Til a hundred and ten
Snake oil, snake oil
Buy my fine snake oil
Gonna make you richer
Than you’ve ever been

Gonna make you richer
Gonna make you richer
Gonna make you richer
Than you’ve ever been
Snake oil, snake oil
Gonna make you richer
Than you’ve ever been
Track Name: South Coast Dreamtime
SUNRISE AT SALTWATER, A SCENE TOO GOOD TO MISS
SWELL ROLLS IN FROM A THOUSAND MILES, MET BY AN OFFSHORE KISS
DRIFT ON UP TO LENNARD’S, PAMBULA RIVERMOUTH
FIVE FOOT AT THE BAR, DREAMTIME WAY DOWN SOUTH

BUNGA UP TO CUTTAGEE, GOT IT TO OURSELVES
JUST A POD OF DOLPHINS, PLAYING IN THE SWELL
DALMENY STRIP AND CONGO, MORUYA BREAKWALL RIGHTS
PINK ROCKS GOING OFF, CLOUDLESS STARRY NIGHTS

WAVES THE STUFF OF LEGEND
LIKE PAMBULA RIVERMOUTH
EMPTY BREAKS THAT PROMISE
DREAM TIME WAY DOWN SOUTH
DREAM TIME WAY DOWN SOUTH.

GUILLOTINES AND NO-TOES, SUNNY DAWN DELIGHT
DRIFT ON UP TO WAIRO BEACH, DOLPHIN POINT TONIGHT
FLAT ROCK ON A BIG SWELL, WE’LL GO TO PILGRIM’S FOR LUNCH
HEAD IN TO GREEN ISLAND, SNIFFIN OUT A HUNCH

AUSSIE PIPE AT SUMMERCLOUD, PAY YOUR TAXES TO THE BROS
SANDON POINT END OF THE LINE, THAT’S AS FAR AS THE SOUTH COAST GOES
SO TURN THE VAN AROUND, AND HEAD BACK DOWN THE LINE
TOO MUCH IS NEVER ENOUGH, YOU’RE TALKING SOUTH COAST DREAMTIME
Track Name: Take Me To Heart
Take Me To Heart
© 2009 Neil Porter

Take me to heart
Just don't take me for granted
Tear me apart
But don't leave me that way
Where do we start
Now that it's over
Take me to heart

When we first met
You got just what you wanted
Time and again
You got your own way
Where do we start
Now that it's over
Take me to heart

Stop me if I've said
Something that doesn't need saying
Stop me if I've said
Something wrong
Tell me if this
Is just some kind of game you're playing
And I'll be gone

SOLOS

Stop me if I've said
Something that doesn't need saying
Stop me if I've said
Something wrong
Tell me if this
Is just some kind of game you're playing
And I'll be gone

Got this thing in my head
That you'll set me free
was it something I said
I just can't let it be
Where do we start
Now that it's over
Take me to heart

Hope you have some regrets
When you walk out that door
But I'll get back my heart
Pick myself off the floor
Where do we start
Now that it's over
Take me to heart

Stop me if I've said
Something that doesn't need saying
Stop me if I've said
Something wrong
Tell me if this
Is just some kind of game you're playing
Track Name: Technology
TECHNOLOGY
©2010 Gus Washbourne

I’m a downtrodden father who’s just been conned
By his daughter once again
I bought her the phone she had to have
To keep in contact with her friends
Then she insisted that it had to have Bluetooth and a hands free kit
A 2 meg camera and the internet and a whole lot of other shit

Chorus
Technology be the death of me
I’m telling you
Technology be the death of me
Ain’t it true
I can’t even tum my laptop on
without doin’ somethin’wrong
I erased my disk and I.wasn’t pissed
and I only had one bong

I bought myself a GPS to get from A to B
It’s full of maps and it talks to you so you don’t
get lost you see
They say it Works from satellites now that’s
A bit of fun
I’m the only man in history to drive up my own bum

Chorus

I acquired for my house a new flat screen HD tv set
They say the bloody picture is the best you’ll ever get
The Blueray player has a hard drive recorder
But that’s not where I’m at
It only means you can record 300 hours of crap

Chorus

TELL ME HONEY
©2000 McDougal, Wisener, Reid

OH TELL ME WHERE DJA GET THE MONEY HONEY
WHERE DJA GET THE CASH?
WHO’S YOUR SECRET LOVER BABY?
WHERE’S YOUR SECRET STASH?
TELL ME HONEY
OH TELL ME BOUT THOSE FANCY THINGS
I’M ONLY JUST ABOVE THE BREAD LINE
AND YOU’RE WEARING FANCY SHOES AND RINGS

I GIVE YOU ALL I EARN, I DON’T GET NOTHIN’ BACK
INFORM ME NOW OR YOU CAN START TO PACK
TELL ME HONEY ETC

I CAN’T AFFORD A SIX PACK
YOU’RE DRINKING STOLLI ON ICE
YOU’RE EATIN CAVIAR AND OYSTERS WHILE I SUBSIST ON RICE
TELL ME HONEY ETC

I’M ONLY JUST ABOVE THE BREAD LINE
AND YOU’RE WEARING FANCY SHOES
YOU’RE WEARING FANCY SHOES
YOU’RE WEARING FANCY SHOES AND RINGS
Track Name: The Crystal Room
THE CRYSTAL ROOM
©2010 Peter Reid

Big swell is looming large
Out the back ready to charge
Sittin’ waiting for the set
Taking off just like a jet

Hopin’ that the wave curls over
If it does, four leaf clover
Lookin for that barrel shape
In the tube, hydraulic escape

Take the drop go super fast
Super sucky, it’s a blast
Go like crazy, go for broke
Here it comes the ultimate stoke

Overhead it looks like glass
Underneath its sucking past
Line it up, aim for the light
Get the angle totally right

Get inside
The Barrel ride
The Crystal Room

It’s a blast
Super fast
The Crystal Room

Sucking sound
All around
The Crystal Room

Out with the spit
This is it
The Crystal Room

Things Must Change
© Neil Porter 2007

You’ve got your hoodie up
The cone of silence down
Your buds are in your ears
Don’t want to turn around
Things have to change
Things just have to change

You’re staying out all night
I don’t know who you’re seeing
Get home and want a fight
You think I’ve got no feelings?
Things have to change
Things just have to change

This just can’t go on
Don’t know what’s gone wrong
But I want us to talk about it
You’ve got me seeing red
I don’t know what I said
But we’ve just got to talk about it
This just can’t go on
And I don’t know what I’ve done wrong
But I want us to talk about it
Talk about it

It’s not so long ago
We used to be best friends
There was no toe to toe
There were no rifts to mend
Things have to change
Things just have to change

Things can’t go on this way
You know what I’m saying
Another week like this
And I’m not staying
Things have to change
Things just have to change

This just can’t go on
Don’t know what’s gone wrong
But I want us to talk about it
You’ve got me seeing red
I don’t know what I said
But we’ve just got to talk about it
This just can’t go on
And I don’t know what I’ve done wrong
But I want us to talk about it
We’ve just got to talk about it

If things don’t pick up soon
I don’t know what I’ll do
You mean so much to me
I thought I meant the same to you
I just don’t understand
The way you make me feel
I can’t take it anymore
Things just have to change

Track Name: Wood You Like Chips With That?
©2010 Peter Reid/Neil Porter

There’s protest in the forest
Two different points of view you
see
One on the side of nature
One on the economy
There are those that see the
forests
As revenue, that’s that
There’s those that see the trees as
crucial habitat

Some people protest
They know just what it’s worth
They put their bodies on the line
To save the lungs of the universe
They know their grandkids
Need the forests and the trees
Koalas in the treetops
Let’s protect the air we breathe

What do we want?
When do we want it?
Hands off our future
We want it now
What do we want? When do we
want it?
Do it now!

SOLO x 2 verses (16 bars)

What do we want?
When do we want it?
Hands off our future
We want it now
What do we want? When do we
want it?
Do it now!

We can’t all join the protest
But we can back the people who
were there
We can help to pay the fines
We can show them that we care
The forests are for everyone
They belong to us all
The trees hold our future
Let’s not see them fall

There’s protest in the forest
Two different points of view you
see
One on the side of nature
One on the economy
There are those that see the
forests
As revenue, that’s that
There’s those that see the trees as
crucial habitat

What do we want?
When do we want it?
Hands off our future
We want it now
What do we want? When do we
want it?
Do it now!
