Track Name: Candle-blind (Live)
LYRICS

Fingers stained like old tattoos
Of every word I scored for you
Bright of eye and dark of wing
Blacker than a mourning ring

Candle-blind and broken-minded
Breathing just to be reminded

(Breathing just to be reminded)

Faking for a living thing
Shadows of my carrion king
Pick the screaming bones of me
Clean this criminal debris

Candle-blind and broken-minded
Breathing just to be reminded

(Breathing just to be reminded)

Go on and stare, I won’t even look behind
It’s not fair to keep you guessing
The way that you’re obsessing
It’s so unkind

The way that you decide me; the way your tiny mind defines me
I am finer than the world you’re dying in

Candle-blind and broken-minded
Breathing just to be reminded
Breathing just to be reminded
Breathing just to be reminded

Track Name: Mr Jones (Fear of Falling) [Live]
LYRICS

How on earth did you get to me?
Me, the devotee of Newton’s Theory
I believe that what goes up must ultimately return
And so for safety reasons
Oh I prefer to keep my feelings
Firmly pinned to terra firma now
Oh I’m afraid of heights
‘Cos I’m afraid of falling
Oooh-whoa! I’m afraid of falling

Well I took a walk outside
To clear my head
Forgot myself completely
And danced for the stars instead - yeah
The air was cool
There was a mist rolling in from the south
Fair took me by surprise
Like a peppermint in my mouth
Oh you do this to me and
I can’t believe it
My heart is fifty feet above the ground
Now I’m gonna have to retrieve it
Oh Mr. Jones, ooh what have you done?
Oooh-whoa! What have you done?

So I’m up here in the stratosphere
Floating upside down
And now that I’m gliding
I can move without a sound
Oh it’s a beautiful view
‘Cos all I can see when I look up is you
And no one moves through those fluffy clouds
The way that you do
Oh it’s a regular, bona fide, medical enigma
I’m afraid of heights so
What the Hell am I doing up here with ya?
Oh Mr. Jones, don’t you leave me alone
Oooh-whoa! Don’t you leave me alone.

You were quite unexpected
Not what the doctor directed
But I should have you
At least three times a day
Oh I don’t need a sweetener for ya
Don’t want water to help me swallow
I can take you straight into the vein
I don’t know if I’m still or I’m standing
I can’t tell if I’m breathing or drowning
Oh I feel like I’m swimming underground
Oh Mr. Jones, let’s just take this on home
Oooh-whoa! Let’s just take this on home

Track Name: Once Bitten, Twice Shy (Live)
LYRICS

If you ever, ever change your mind
Oh then darling, you will not find
My heart is so easy, easy to fall
Under your spell
Oh, well, well, well, well, well, well, well

Once bitten, twice shy
Ah now c'mon and look me in the eye
And tell me you love me
Come on now, tell me you love me
And I will show you a lie
I will show you a lie
Because you...oh you are the cheatin’ kind

I'm not looking for the answer
I'm not wasting my time
I'm just waiting, waiting for your wings
To scratch the eyes out of the sky
Oh nothing is right
When nothing is wrong
So why do we fight
Just to get along?

Once bitten, twice shy
Ah now c'mon and look me in the eye
And tell me you love me
Come on now, tell me you love me
And I will show you a lie
I will show you a lie
Because you...oh you are the cheatin’ kind

You take a breath
Every time I exhale
Ah we're so out of synch
In a beautiful Hell
So come on and meet me at the crossroads
And I'll drive you round the bend
Cos you ain't never, no you ain’t never
No you ain’t never coming back here again

Once bitten, twice shy
Ah now c'mon and look me in the eye
And tell me you love me
Come on now, tell me you love me
And I will show you a lie
I will show you a lie
Because you...oh you are the cheatin’ kind

You, you don’t mean nothin’ to me
No, oh you don't even move me
And brother I know you been shakin’ me down
Ah but you don’t own me
Oh no, you don’t, oh you don’t control me
And I, oh I, I don’t want you around, no

Once bitten, twice shy
Ah now c'mon and look me in the eye
And tell me you love me
Come on now, tell me you love me
And I will show you a lie
I will show you a lie
Because you...oh you, you, you, you, you are the cheatin’ kind

Ah yeah, you are the cheatin’ kind
Yeah you’re the cheatin’ kind

You are the cheatin’ kind
