The lyrics for the 2001 album "Welcome to Earth". Take it away!

 

Ragnarok & Roll (words by Pod, music by Psi Phi)

Look at all the terror on the face of all the people in the hall
Make the clock run backwards or there won't be anybody left at all

Terrified the planets are in line
Terrified they're running out of time

Oh no - its Ragnarok & Roll
Its coming down to eat your soul
Oh no - its Ragnarok & Roll
Its come to take away your soul

Ring the bell for one last time and drain your glass and then put out the light
When the clock rolls over pull the shutters down and wish us all goodnight

Sit and watch the planes fall out the sky
Curl up tight and kiss your ass goodbye

Oh no - its Ragnarok & Roll
Its coming down to eat your soul
Oh no - its Ragnarok & Roll
Its come to take away your soul

 

 
 

Science Fiction (words by Pod, music by Psi Phi)
Albert and Nils see what Nature reveals
While God rolls the bones, plays some tricks of his own
Wherever they look He slips things in to see
They can't even make their delusions agree

Werner and Paul made some sense of it all
The web that they weave made God laugh up his sleeve
The rule that they found was all too bizarre
When they know where they're going - they don't know where they are

If it didn't shock you - if it didn't shock you
You didn't understand
If it didn't shock you - if it didn't shock you
You didn't understand

Nothing lies like proof
Nothing strange as truth
Like science fiction
There's no certainty like probability
Like science fiction

Nothing is real
 

 
 
 

I Don't Want No-one Else! (words and music by Pod)

The day seeps in - like the water creeping into my shoe
The light congeals - and every step's a little further from you

But don't worry babe, I'm gonna be OK
I've got a sweetheart kiss to keep me warm all day from you
Don't worry baby I'll be good as gold
I'm alright cos I got you in my soul
You better believe me baby you've been told

I don't want no-one else - I'd rather be
Be all by myself
I don't want no-one else
Now I've got you I don't need no-one else

The day creeps in - like I'll be creeping in your front door soon
The night subsides - and every step's a little closer to you

But don't worry baby I've been feeling fine
I've been so far away but I've been there in my mind with you
Don't worry babe, I'm coming right on home
I'm gonna stay with you there where I can get you alone
You better believe it baby you've been told

I don't want no-one else - I'd rather be
Be all by myself
I don't want no-one else
Now I've got you
I don't need no-one else


 

 
 
 

Looking-glass War (words and music by Pod)

Counting out pieces of fate on the living-room table
Trying somehow to exchange them for something more stable
One casualty more in the looking-glass war
You stayed till the last
You were tied to the mast
And as your ship sank you bravely saluted the flag

Swaggering round with a satisfied look on your face
You suddenly looked up and found yourself in a strange place
You had to retreat to avoid a defeat
You were caught at the pass
And you died on your ass
Now the best you can do is to bury your dead and move on

Cos its all gone wrong - by now you were supposed to be rolling along
And you stayed too long
You stared into space with that grin on your face
And the whole human race has moved on

Now the bits of your puzzle are scattered all over the floor
Opportunity knocked - you were waiting behind the wrong door
So give us a smile as you crawl the last mile
Its no place for fools
And remember the rules -
You can't win, you can't draw, and you'll never get out of the game

Cos its all gone wrong - by now you were supposed to be rolling along
And you stayed too long
You stared into space with that grin on your face
And the whole human race has moved on


 

 

 

Another Lovesong  (words and music by Pod)

It's a sad cold world
Under my window, in the dark outside
There's a voice in me
Fighting the silence of a lonely night

There's a name inside my head - crying for freedom
A song made of the things we said
Burning my heart

But
I won't sing another lovesong till you're back with me
No
I won't sing another lovesong till you're back with me

I'll send my thoughts out there
Follow your shadow to the place you hide
There's a place for us
Over the skyline in a better time

There's a name inside my head - crying for freedom
A song made of the things we said
Burning my heart

But
I won't sing another lovesong till you're back with me
No
I won't sing another lovesong till you're back with me
 

 
 
 

Forever and a Day (words by Andy , music by Psi Phi)

Can you feel the heartache - can you feel it tearing us apart
I want to feel you by my side tonight
Is the fire still burning - let me in to show you how I feel
I want to feel you in my arms all night

One kiss and I feel your heartbeat
One smile and I know you still love me
One look and I know you need me
One touch and I know we'll be this way
Forever and a day

From the day we started I knew that we were meant to be
Now you've become a part of me for life
I really need you by me - when I drift you're there to guide me home
You're the breeze that carries me along the road

One kiss and I feel your heartbeat
One smile and I know you still love me
One look and I know you need me
One touch and I know we'll be this way
Forever and a day
 

 
 
 

Dark Day (words by Pod, music by Psi Phi)

You will know - when it is time (to watch the sky)
You will know - in your mind (you wonder why)

Strangest feelings - go to pieces
Midday twilight - colours fade to grey

Dark falls on an August day
You feel the fear coming on
Reason is torn away
As the dragon bites at the sun

Now it's time - now it's time (the hour has come)
Now it's time - dark is here, the sun has gone

 

 
 
 

Right Place, Wrong Time (words by Rob , music by Psi Phi)

I don't want to lose you, don't want to hear what you're going to say
And I would spend my lifetime wishing your words away

This is not my life - this isn't how its supposed to be
I was so blind

If I only had the eyes to see - right place, wrong time
Just to see what's right in front of me - right place, wrong time

Through my tears I see you, but then they wash away
At night I dream of you, but then I wake
Now I can't try, but I can pray
You won't believe in me, and you won't stay

Now the rain's my friend and the night it seems so long
But was I wrong

If I only had the eyes to see - right place, wrong time
Just to see what's right in front of me - right place, wrong time

Where are you tonight? If you ask, I'm not alright
Now the memories fade - do you even think of me at all?

Can I say that I've been loved - will I feel so loved again?
You were my friend

If I only had the eyes to see - right place, wrong time
Just to see what's right in front of me - right place, wrong time


 

 
 
 

Where Did The Good Times Go (words and music by Pod)

Remember the time when you were sweet sixteen
Making your love to your teenage dream

Now you look back and it seems so strange
Now you look back and you re-arrange
Look back now its not so bad
Thinking of everything you never had

Johnny goes out in the night - pretty maids all in a row
Something inside says you can't have everything
Where did the good times go?
Johnny goes out in the night - see pretty maids all in a row
You're a thief in the night but you can't have everything
Where did the good times go?

Now you think you've found what the whole thing's for
Got the house and the Jag and the two-point-four

But the wife walked out and the kids won't write
And you parked the car in the house last night
Try and you try but it won't come right
And you blame yourself- and you're too damn right

Johnny goes out in the night - pretty maids all in a row
Something inside says you can't have everything
Where did the good times go?
Johnny goes out in the night - see pretty maids all in a row
You're a thief in the night but you can't have everything
Where did the good times go?

Johnny goes out in the night - see pretty maids all in a row
You can take what you like but you can't keep anything
Where did the good times go?
