HARRISBURG

W - Moginie/Kevans
The empire burns
The umpire's not laughing
The president's resented,
The ambassadors's a night club
You cannot get it out

It's stuff you cannot taste or see
It's stuff you cannot smell
It's stuff that's twenty times as hot
As the hottest stuff in hell

Harrisburg oh Harrisburg
The plant is melting down
The people out in Harrisburg
Are getting out of town
And when this stuff gets in
You cannot get it out

The company said it would not blow
The government said it might
Harrisburg oh Harrisburg
I wonder who is right

Who can leave it behind, the curtains are drawn
There's something I must say to you
You cannot get it out

HEAD OVER HEELS

W - Hirst/Rotsey/Moginie
I'm head over heels You know how it feels to be in love
I'm head over heels Holding back the chills of love
I think I like the sound we're chasing
I'm giving it all and you're reciprocating

I'm head over heels Turning back the wheels of love
We're stealing the show
You're stealing my money and love
You're all the same you part-time lovers

When it starts to rain
You're hiding under covers

It just don't add up This summer fever
She turns the truth and I don't believe her
Stories flying, love is dying
In the end I can't understand her lying

I'm head over heels in love
I think I like the sound we're chasing

HELPS ME HELPS YOU

W - Hirst/Moginie
Look at all the toys I got
Look at all the things I need
Look at all the toys I got
Look at all the mouths I feed

Have I got a wonderful deal for you
What belongs to me belongs to you
I understand what you're going through
I know the point to push you to

My policy helps me helps you
Generosity helps me helps you
Conspiracy helps me helps you
Put your trust in me I'll help you too

Look at all the things I've done
Look at all the rights I wrong
The means will justify the end
For you to save and me to spend

'Cos I've got a great idea you see
What belongs to me belongs to me
I know just what you wanna do
I know how I can get there too

Hypocrisy helps me helps you
Democracy helps me helps you
Ideology helps me helps you
Put your trust in me
I'll help your through

HERCULES

W - Moginie/Garrett/Hirst
My life is a valuable thing
I want to keep it that way
I won't cry

My life's such a valuable thing
Some things don't fade away
I don't mind
We give the best we can give
We won't forget we can't forgive
Keep us radioactive free

Strike a bell in Hiroshima park
You know that we can't see in the dark
We try & try & we try...

Who waits for the planes to come
When everybody's got you on the run
South Pacific carry on

It seems to me that what we're saying
Nobody wants to talk about
This is no time to be wondering why

I do the best I can do
The human jungle and the global zoo
I'll find my way it's a very special world

Why wait for the planes to come
When everybody's got us on the run
South Pacific carry on

Here comes the Hercules
Here comes the submarines
Sinking South Pacific dreams
