* Sneeze Theme
Instrumental

Ying And Yang Telephone
you always give me lots of time
keep me hanging on a Chinese party line (it's black and white I know)
it's just a ying and yang telephone

you always tell me right from wrong (tell me right from wrong)
doesn't matter how long I stayed on (it's a panda bear I know)
it's just a ying and yang telephone (telling me to stay home)

Trouble In School
all my friends ask me
"why are you so bad?"
was it the way you were brought up
did you have trouble in school

don't give me no *#@!ed psychology
no hand me down ideology
it's just the way I am
I didn't have trouble in school

didn't do my homework
does it mean that I am slow
just throwing spit balls from the back of the room
was all I needed to know

I didn't have trouble in school
trouble in school

school wasn't vital
to a huge success
my great point average takes a dive
when I tried my best

I didn't have trouble in school
trouble in school
trouble in school

Two Kates
Kate, you're a good friend to Kate
my good friends two Kates
they'll be coming all around
surprising everyone in town

Kate, remind me to remain
just good friends with Kate
I won't be coming back down
just surprising everyone at the Lowne.

So give me high five baby
look at Tim and isn't he great
so give me high five baby
we're concerned about you
and everything that we've been through
will keep us all smiling, maybe a hug or two

with Kate, you're a good friend to Kate
we were born on the same date
holding hands and singing big red songs
we've got a baby sitter let's have fun

with Kate, my good friends two Kates
they'll be catching the train at eight
they'll be coming all around
surprising everyone in town
they'll be coming all around
surprising everyone in town

About Two Kates:
Written about two Lemonheads fans from Melbourne called Kate and Kate.

There He Is
There he is, he don't know
how I felt a long time ago

it was dark all around
I lit a match to find my path
then I burned it down

there he is but he don't know
how Iíve bled from head to toe
there's no feeling left in here
just look at him there he is
just look at him there he is

Commencing December
Remember pretending waited for someone
at last year's Christmas party,

hey buddy you can't plan it
these things happen and I don't understand it
you told me your name but I just don't remember
you got a new girlfriend commencing December

you told me that love is something you lack
you can't look under L in your filofax
you won't find it there
you won't find it there

you heard her brother then started to blush
cause I went that way when I first had a crush
you told me your name but I just don't remember
you got a new girlfriend commencing December

Janey was, Janey was, you left me all alone
pretended we were talking, my friends waited for the phone
Janey was, Janey was, you left me all alone
couldn't get a cab that night, so I had snow-shoe home

Shaky Ground
Hey Jim how you doing, do you need someone else,
well actually Jemimah I'd prefer to be by myself,
sometimes it helps to have someone else along,
but if my girlfriend sees us she'll come to the conclusion it's wrong.

Does this mean we're on shaky ground
I'm happy when you're around
but let's not put our friendship at bay
I love you in a different way.

Paradise and catastrophe they go side by side,
then you should tell your baby if you've got nothing to hide,
when I want to see you I take Jersey for a walk,
what's with all the secrecy if all we ever do is talk.

Does this mean we're on shaky ground
I'm happy when you're around
but let's not put our friendship at bay
I love you in a different way

Does this mean we're on shaky ground
I'm happy when you're around
but let's not put our friendship at bay
I love you in a different way

shaky ground
I'm happy when you're around
but let's not put our friendship at bay
I love you in a different way

About Shaky Ground:
Evan Dando was falsely given credit for writing Shaky Ground.

Doomed To Visit Disneyland
Doomed to visit Disneyland
buy a house, have a car and a wife
doomed to visit Disneyland
every single day of my life
another day, it's just another day
it's just a couple of days ago
and I'm doomed to visit Disneyland
double shoot and there ain't no doubt
double shoot in Disneyland
would just be swell and the only way out
another day, it's just another day
it's just a couple of days ago
it's just the same
we're all doomed

Back Down
(?) looks good, I was seeing you (?)
back down, back down again
my head took a turn for the worst
how am I to cope with that
walked out of the room in the dark
back down, Iíll back down again
before the deep end of sleep
before the deep dark past
send me home again
(?) looks fine and silky
back down, back down again
turn my head and look at the race
it's along over there
if we beg what happened to her
back down, I'll back down again
don't look just don't look
just don't look down there

Donít Go (Girlie)
when I said don't go girlie
I didn't mean go away
I want you back I need you here
for another day

I got so much time just hanging around
if you've got something, give it
I'm not holding your hand another minute

don't go girlie on me
don't go girlie on me

when I said stay with me girlie
I didn't mean stay away
I want you back, I need you here
for another day
i got so much time just hanging around
if you've got something, give it
I'm not holding your hand another minute

don't go girlie on me
don't go queer

Demand
logo name in a sweepstakes packet (you demanded it)
gold plated, chocolate coated, use maracas (you demanded it)
well worn cream corn torn leather jacket (you demanded it)
last song, side two, scratch in the middle (you dem/it)

Ripped Jeans
now I think maybe my hair's too long
little bit too hot when summer comes along
like Joey and Marky and Tommy and DD

ripped jeans ripped jeans ripped jeans
back in the cupboard sick of the scene
ripped jeans ripped jeans ripped jeans
back in the cupboard sick of the scene

you are the cutest girl there'll ever be
I get a bunch full when I think about your knees
like Blacky and Joey and Marky and DD

ripped jeans ripped jeans ripped jeans
back in the cupboard sick of the scene
ripped jeans ripped jeans ripped jeans
back in the cupboard sick of the scene

ripped jeans right now

(ĎCause Youíre So) Sweet
baby I need your love
and thatís no generalisation
cause when you smiled at me
I feel a groovy vibration
and when I hold your hand
well that's my sugar intake
cause you're so sweet

honey I've got this hunch
that I'll know you for a long time
and at lunch well I knew
I needed nothing in my coffee

cause when I held your hand
well that's my sugar intake
cause you're so sweet

sweeter than candy (sweeter sweeter)
sweeter than wine (sweeter sweeter)
and the sweetest girl be so sweeterly mine

sweeter than candy (sweeter sweeter)
sweeter than wine (sweeter sweeter)
and the sweetest girl be so secretly mine

sweeter than candy (sweeter sweeter)
sweeter than wine (sweeter sweeter)
and the sweetest girl is so sweet and she's mine

and I've got a lot of (?)

Winter Won Out
now it's time to change my mind, change to sad
and get to know a feeling gone worse to sad
and walk a different way home everyday (yeah yeah)
and how should I know how to behave

winter won't make me any colder than I already am
winter won't make me any colder than I already am (na na na na na now)
winter won't make me any colder than I already am (na na na na na now)
winter won't make me any colder than I already am

Pedal
snuck away from the Anzac parade
got sick of looking at medals
later upstairs behind mum's back
hit my pedal
when she left I wanted more
said i'd put her name plus one on the door
climbed on stage through pins and needles
hit my pedal

Accident Prone
when we go out together
I wish I was alone
and I wish that I had never
gone into accident zone

accident prone
we're an accident zone
accident prone
we're an accident zone

well accidents will happen
just like Elvis said
but not like the other Elvis
we'll both end up dead

accident zone
we're an accident zone
accident prone
we're an accident zone

well I'm taking care of business
just like PTO
and I'll keep my distance
stay away from accident zone
accident zone, keep you on your toes

Satan
On the surface she's pretty nice
but underneath she's Satan
mum and dad won't have her back at the house
cause she ate Skip, our Alsatian

doctor Jeckyl and Mr Hyde
you know she'll keep them waiting
cause on the surface she's pretty nice
but underneath she's Satan

Autumnal Eyes
Autumnal eyes
look at me through your disguise
as the feelings grow you just don't know
autumnal eyes
kept in the dark, just been told lies
and you're fairly young, almost sublime

autumnal eyes
autumnal eyes

head long dive into darkness
one slip up and it's back to square one
gone a little crazy when you've just begun

autumnal eyes
they disappear cut down to size
you keep first prize, makes you realise, what you just won't show
your autumnal eyes
you cross the room, you feel your way it'll be ok
you can see in the dark with just a little spark

autumnal eyes

Did You Know??
Autumnal Eyes appears on the Godstar compilation album September, played live by Godstar in September 1993.

Baby Asleep
baby asleep, must not be woken tonight
a one deep sleep for you, so you'll get high
no need to turn the music down
i know my love with you and I'll get high
baby asleep must not be woken tonight
one deep sleep for you and we'll all get high
Did You Know??
Leticia and Marti from 120 Mins have written a Spanish version of Baby Asleep. It is called Beibi Pelķ. It appears on The Maybe Moving In EP. You can view the lyrics

Monday Night At Mars With Zero People
I can see one in the corner, I'm reaching out for it
multipling like mushrooms, I gotta keep my grip
'cause it's Monday night at mars with zero people
hello zero, I see your pieces state of rest (?)
? lock up ? like a really good game of chess (?)
'cause it's Monday night at mars with zero people
I'm getting chased by the big banana
sick of airline orange juice
you are so far gone on me
I'll rocket ship to get to you
'cause it's Monday night at mars with zero people
Monday night at mars with zero people
now thereís named four stars in the sky
after the Beatles, John, Paul, George and Ringo
lalala lalala la la laaa...

Goodbye Vinyl
goodbye vinyl
I hope to see you round
goodbye vinyl
I hope to see you round
goodbye vinyl
I hope to see you round
goodbye vinyl
I hope to see you round

* Darth Vader Helmet
Darth Vader helmet
tickets to fun land
meeting down at a quarter to three
a fantasy hotline and a disco ball
couldn't be more appealing
would you want to ask for anything more
red jump suit and bleached blonde hair
I must have been drifting for years
chocolate flowers
waiting at the front door
it's getting really crowded down the front
got the wennies
warming in the oven
couldn't be more appealing
would you want to ask for anything more
got a glimpse zipping up the bodybag
must have been drifting for years
how long will this go on
probably one minute and forty one cause it's bad

* Dadís Trailer
I've got a wide long fender
I've got a tail light failure
I'm waving at my dad because I see a red back spider
but dad just says nothing cause he thinks we're saying hi
in dad's trailer (dad's trailer)
I've got a wide long fender
I've got a tail light failure
until they make the movie cause I dreamt about the trailer
but Gary thinks he as my dad would be a huge failure
in dad's trailer (dad's trailer)
my dad's the original swervedriver (uh huh)
and I should know cause I'm a survivor (oh yeah)
About Dad's Trailer:
A true story about one day when Nic was getting a lift with his dad back to his home town. Riding in the trailer, Nic saw a red back spider. He was waving at his dad and his dad was waving back.

* Create Your Friends
create your friends
make them mysteries
take them out of nowhere
twist and bend
it doesn't matter
they can sleep in your head

I delved into my past
I made a mess
one time at last
and when you know
you will be out there
when you're sitting pretty create your friends

create your friends
make enough history
with silver and shine through the night
twist and bend
it doesn't matter
they're asleep in your head

* Better Days
you've been away too long
I've been away too fast
I had a short retire
but it's the road at last

I've seen better nights than this
and slept through better days
and if I try to jump off this cloud
I'll end up in a haze

* Photo Finish
flash flash it goes so fast
there's only one person that's ever gonna catch you
you told me it's a lie but there's not much in it
it's gonna have to be a photo finish

* Iím Upset Enough (Parts 1 & 2)
I walked the isle, without my bride
and now I walk these streets, without my pride
Iím upset enough
and now you say, you stole me stuff
my super 8, superfuzz bigmuff
Iím upset enough
without it, Iím just like anyone
say you took, show my how much
Iím upset enough
Iím upset enough
Iím upset enough

* Could Run Or Walk
another reason why you kept me hanging on is that to say
like the way you're undecided when you're not the (?) today
if I could run or walk it makes no difference if you talk
I could run or walk it makes no difference if you talk
no matter what (?) carry on feeling fine
some days you have to remind her
that didn't make it obvious Ďcause Iíd lost the time
I could run or walk it makes no difference if you talk

* Lolly Land
I'll have five of these
some strawberry cream, milk bottles of tea
all in a little white bag
just dive right in, save the gumball till last
walking hand in hand with you to lolly land
walking hand in hand with you to lolly land
to lolly land, to lolly land
I'll have five of these
some strawberry cream, milk bottles of tea
all in a little white bag
just dive right in, save the gumball till last
walking hand in hand with you to lolly land

* You Put Me Where I Am Today
every word I ever said
was caught between my teeth
donít push me to the answer now
if I'd blush any harder I'd bleed
the reason you raid was ran against the grain
finish your thought sort of looked so (?) again
itís a shame the things I do
just donít mean nothing
but you could lock me up indoors
and go outside and play
donít push me for the answer now
you put me where I am today

* Climbing Vulture Street
vulture street
trying to work it all out
I heard that song again today
you know I think that it (?)
but I still wouldn't put it on a compilation tape
made one for love, lust and lemonjuice
it's funny but I think that song came true
so here's something to ease your mind
and I picked it up just in time for me

* Evil Star
(?) on the evil star
sacrifice won't get far
(?) *@#! off
silence mortal coil
oh the pain

* R
ah, ah, ah, ah

* Sheís Got A Boyfriend
There she is with another guy
I can still recall a time, she was mine
don't even count as a memory
it's so fresh in my mind, it's not right
what can I do except to pretend
pretend that I don't care
when (?) brings me up, brings me down
she's got a boyfriend now
drinking coffee, chocolate on your nose
while I stay home
but it hurts to believe her
cause I really need her
but I only deceive her
but it's called a payback
I was too laid back
not just having a late snack
she's got a boyfriend now
drinking coffee, chocolate on your nose
while I stay home
Did You Know??
Sneeze were meant to play with Evan Dando at the Annandale Hotel (Sydney) in January 1999, but didn't show/cancelled at the last minute because Evan missed his plane. They reckoned they couldn't go on without him. The pub was packed with people hanging to see Evan. There was a sign on the footpath outside saying "Evan Dando will not be appearing" and everyone inside was wondering what was going on.

* Pins And Needles
I've got a secret fuzzy love for you
and if that ain't bad enough
I think, I think, I think I love you
I wanna stick it to you with my bigmuff

I love you and I hope that you love me too
I love you

cause everyday is a perfect day
since the day that I met you

I love you
but I get tingles, pins and needles
I get tingles, pins and needles

* Dice
come on Jim now
let's roll the dice
Tommy two tone's in town
I was there last right
Jimmy don't you lose my number

* Cold Cold Morning
I'll make my way out
drop a tear on the welcome mat
I won't be coming back round here
say goodbye to Wayne for me
he's been a good friend all these years
tell him he was right the radio don't bleed

cold cold morning looking at the stars in the rain
cold cold morning, feeling pain
what's the big deal
how can you show your face round here

* (Youíre So) Patient
looked around and kept you waiting
when you're so patient
disapproval but you never blame me
cause you're so patient with me

whoah whoah you're so (you're so) patient with me

* Nevermind
nevermind, cause you never do
feeling kind, except to you
Sydney Harbour Schmoozefest
with Mudhoney with money
Barnyard Backboard Boys are crawling
they think it's kinda funny

nevermind, cause you never do
feeling kind, except to you (except to you)
refries

* Explain Deep December
guessing from the very beginning
and maybe I could try
carved your name into the tree
did you ever go to see
biting hard against the grain
against my best intentions
looking for another way out
can I open up your letterbox and take away your pension
no was your answer
as you crawled to close the door
did you trip or simply stumble
will you ever smile again
it took some time to sink in
into my melting mind
you reached across, unlatched the door
it opened just in time
plain as day, explain to me
it might even make some sense
carved your name into a tree
deep December eighty three

* Strawbreeze
well we can't use tapes forever
some day we should get a real band
but it sure does make it a lot easier
we don't have that much gear, then again
hope it rains when we play
so there's smithering and no expectations
just a bunch of all our friends
past and future, who just dropped in
so we can't use tapes forever
what would happen if they all ran out
could we have the confidence
to strum unaccompanied
who should we follow
and should we take the lead
and then again it seems so simple,
but I just love playing along
clutching at straws
barely playing along
this band is called Strawbreeze
it's just me and Tom
Did You Know??
Strawbreeze was written and recorded by Nic in the same day. Since then, it has only ever been played once, at the Beaches in Newcastle on March 15th 2002.
