Track Name: Dunes Delirium
DUNES DELIRIUM - Dreamgirl and the Motorist
(c) and (p) Dreamgirl and the Motorist 1999

We're stuck in the Bermuda triangle
Lapses of time are no longer
It's been 2.40pm for a week now
And i don't think we'll be leaving here anytime soon
Three o'clock is no nearer to us than the sun
Disposable ideas in dots per inch
Lie dormant in screensaver mode
We are alone
We are alone

It is the year 2010 but we're still stuck in 1999
It is the year 2010 but we're still stuck in 1999

We are alone in the confines of this dreaded space
It sucked us in long ago and bound us never to escape
Lips close on clenched teeth and we're tortured by continuous playlists
Our ship floats in and out of time in centimetres only
Damn is it 3 o'clock yet?
It never is, never ever

It is the year 2010 but we're still stuck in 1999
It is the year 2010 but we're still stuck in 1999

Consumerism keeps the feet fixed in the same place
Let the legs wobble with anxiety
And the mind wander around on another plain
All for that routine of day to day familiarity that is so kindly given to us
Track Name: Sympathiser
SYMPATHISER (A night home in Manchester) -
Dreamgirl and the Motorist
(c) and (p) Dreamgirl and the Motorist 2004

I'm walking down the lane
It's so dark and silent
I know that I shouldn't go
But you say to me
"Please take me home,
I don't think I can make it alone"
"I can't make it alone"

This could be the stupidest thing
We've done in our lives
We may not make it out alive
But we've been taught to sympathise
So we'll just go on and on and on

We're walking down the lane
Looking at each other and both ways
You hold on tight as you say
"Don't be afraid, it will be alright.
I promise you that you'll make it home tonight"
"You'll make it home tonight"

This could be the stupidest thing
We've done in our lives
We may not make it out alive
But we've been taught to sympathise
So we'll just go on and on and on

We reach the end of the lane
Your keys open the door and it swings away
We look each other in the eye
We don't say a thing
And take her inside
She cries "Don't leave!"
As we run for our lives!
Back down the lane
Back from where we came

This could be the stupidest thing
We've done in our lives
We may not make it out alive
But we've been taught to sympathise
So we'll just go on and on and on
Track Name: Everywhere I Go
EVERYWHERE I GO - Dreamgirl and the Motorist
(c) and (p) Dreamgirl and the Motorist 2000

I'm trapped behind glass with you on the outside
I'm standing naked only to your eyes
I'm losing my breath my chest is tight
Won't you just whisper some words before leaving?

You're everywhere that I go
You're everywhere I go
Even with my eyes closed
So how do I escape?

A teenager I become whenever you're around
Watch me fumble with my words, I'm sinking
Dipped in shades of blue, your eyes shine like light
Won't you just whisper one word before leaving?

You're everywhere that I go
You're everywhere I go
Even with my eyes closed
So how do I escape?
Track Name: Crush Me
CRUSH ME - Dreamgirl and the Motorist
(c) and (p) Dreamgirl and the Motorist 2001

Step aside while I give all that is mine
You are everything I could ever want
Where's the signs?
They're all in my mind

YOU CRUSH ME..

Sent to keep me cynical
And avoiding rejection
Just one more thing
To add to my collection

YOU CRUSH ME...
Track Name: Frailty
FRAILTY - Dreamgirl and the Motorist
(c) and (p) Dreamgirl and the Motorist 2004

You look like death
Standing there on the edge
You with your sunken eyes
You with your thin thighs
You looked up at me
But didn't see what I could see
You on the edge
You on the edge

Frailty

It started in your mind
Now it drags you down all the time
Eyes are playing tricks
Making you feel sick
Still I see you walking everyday
Your body barely able to hold your frailty
You can no longer see
Your own frailty

Frailty

Take those magazines off the shelf
They're no good for the health
Put realism on TV
Not unreachable images of how we should be
Wake up and be responsible
For impressionable minds that you've moulded
And who've stopped eating to die

I wonder who you are
And if you've got anyone to tell you
You've gone too far
You can no longer see
Your own frailty

Frailty
Track Name: Ashamed
ASHAMED - Dreamgirl and the Motorist
(c) and (p) Dreamgirl and the Motorist 2006

You don't know
What it's like to struggle
Sitting in you house on the hill
Spoon fed your entire existence
How can you speak for anyone else?

Tax cuts for the rich
Penny-less for the poor
Turn away anyone that needs at all

You make me feel
ASHAMED

You and your new workplace relations
Suit none but people in high places
Spoon fed all of your new ideas
How can you run a whole country?

Tax cuts for the rich
Penny-less for the poor
Turn away anyone that needs at all

You make me feel
ASHAMED

You know that one day it will catch up with you
When your time is through
And we'll be there watching every little thing that you do
When you get what's coming to you
You'll be made to look at all the lives you've ruined
In your time of rule
So maybe you should turn things around soon
And help those less fortunate than you.

Tax cuts for the rich
Penny-less for the poor
Turn away anyone that needs at all

You make me feel
ASHAMED
Track Name: Don't Change
Don't Change - Dreamgirl and the Motorist
(c) and (p) Dreamgirl and the Motorist 2006

Don't you change
anything for me
So don't you change
anything for me

when we both go
we will walk away silent
paying last respects to a battle lost
but now we've both won

So don't you change
anything for me
So don't you change
anything for me, for me

We are the soldiers of hope
helping to free our wounded
so now it's (higher) time to be on our own
and wage an offence of our own

So don't you change
anything for me
So don't you change
anything for me


So don't you change
(higher) anything for me
So don't you change
anything for me, for me
Track Name: Close My Eyes So I Can See
CLOSE MY EYES SO I CAN SEE - Dreamgirl and the Motorist
(c) and (p) Dreamgirl and the Motorist 2005

I'm looking and searching but it isn't even here
I'm looking, it's not working...It isn't here

I don't know your name
But I really want to find out
I don't know your name
But I'm willing to find out
Give me your name
So I can say it out loud
I want to know your name
And I see you in the crowd

I'm looking and searching but it isn't even here
I'm looking, it's not working...You're still not here

I don't know your name
But I'm willing to find out
I don't know your name
But I really want to find out
Give me your name
So I can say it out loud
I want to know your name
And I see you in the crowd

And I'll see you today when I'm not looking
'Cause you're pointed out to me

I'll be in Sydney today and there you'll be
Standing next to me

I'll be driving my car today and there you'll be
At the lights beside me

I'll be in the supermarket today and there you'll be
In the line in front of me

I'll be in a gallery today and there you'll be
Looking at the same image as me

Looking at the same image as me

So when I stop looking, you will be there
So I close my eyes so I can see

So when I stop looking, you will be there
So I close my eyes so I can see
Track Name: Circus Animals
CIRCUS ANIMALS - Dreamgirl and the Motorist
(c) and (p) Dreamgirl and the Motorist 2005

This town has become so small
Not like we left it at all
Either it has changed or we have both grown
Beyond this place we called our home

Chorus
Come over here, come along for the ride
It's a circus up here
In this mind of mine

Everyday I can't show you how I feel
So how can we keep it real?
From the outside we seem worlds apart
But not when it comes to our hearts

Chorus
Come over here, come along for the ride
It's a circus up here
In this mind of mine
Of mine...in this mind of mine (repeat x3)

It's come to an end
We don't need to pretend
it's working
When it's not working
We can exist as friends
and be together to the end
If we want to
If we want to (x6)
And we do
And so we do
Track Name: So You Don't
SO YOU DON"T - Dreamgirl and the Motorist
(c) and (p) Dreamgirl and the Motorist 2006

You've worked it out now
You're just fine
You're doing much better
Than I could have done
You've worked it out now
You're just fine
You're doing much better
Than I could have done

So you don't need me to hurt you anymore
So you don't need me to hurt you anymore

You've worked it out now
You're just fine
You're doing much better
Than I could have done
You've worked it out now
You're just fine
And you get better with the
Passing of time

So you don't need me to hurt you anymore (x4)


So here are the ways that you can leave me
So here are days where we can part ways
So here are the ways that we can both live
One by one with only what we want to give

So you don't need me to hurt you anymore (x4)
