Time’s got no hold on me  You’ve got no hold on me  They’ve got no hold on me  I’ve got no hold on me  Hold on  Hold on  Hold on, me  I’ve got no hold on you  They’ve got no hold you  You’ve got no hold on you  Time’s got no hold on you  Hold on  Hold on, you  Hold on  Hold on  Hold on, me
2.
Backup all your memories  Put them in a hole  Hide them somewhere safely  So you never lose your soul  Draw the curtains tightly  Don't let the summer in  It all adds up to something  You can't start to begin
3.
It's hard to do what you want to do  Treefella...  It's hard to do what you want to do  Are you listening?  Can you hear me?  There's no place that I would rather be  Than sitting up here in my tree  Broken branches  Building bridges  I've been waiting here impatiently  For you to join me up in my tree  So...  Throw out your goods  Come to the woods  & find yourself a tree  & climb up to the top with me  Oooh weee, I'm up in a tree...  Are you listening?  Can you hear me?  It's nothing like I thought it would be  So I'm hiding up here in my tree  Chop my head off  Count the rings  & let me know just how old I am  Cos lately I feel like an old man  You can chop me up  Cut me down  But I'll be back again  My roots are strong  I stand alone  No time for foolish friends  My wooden heart  Is strong as oak  No medium density  So this is where I'll be  In my tree...
4.
C  O  W  A  R  D  That is what I'll always be  C  O  W  A  R  D  Yeah you know me...
5.
Shaking like a Leaf  Treading paper thin  Softly spoken words  A symptomatic grin  I won’t let you go...
6.
If you fear the fall & fail my friend  You can pick yourself back up again  If the world & weight have worn you down  Don't fool around  Dust yourself down  & start over  If you wake & wonder what went wrong  You can listen to your favourite song  Makes you feel the world can't bring you down  So don't fool around  Dust yourself down  & start over

Little Fish
8.
I’ve got a strange old feelin’  That I’m not meant to be here
9.
Birdspotter  I can see  Way up in the  Big tall tree  A little bird & he's singing just for me  Singing out  A lonely song  A timeless melody  Birdspotter  I can hear  A sudden sound in the bushes  Oh so near  It's a little bird & he's singing just for me  Singing out  A lonely song  A timeless melody  Birdspotter  I can see  Way up in the  Big tall tree  A little bird & he's singing just for me  Singing out  A lonely song  A timeless melody

You are the one  Bright as the sun  Alienated point of view  You lost the plot  & time forgot  To bring me back closer to you  But it's okay, Honey  Yeah, it's alright  I'm just going out my mind...  Spend my days  Doubled glazed  Insulated hide-away  A sticky end  For you my friend  Take us back to better days  But it's okay, Honey  Yeah, it's alright  I'm just going out my mind...
11.
The king is dead  Long live the bastard  The king is dead  Long live the king  Long live the bastard  Long live the king  They blew him up...
12.
Sometimes it's hard  Sometimes it's tough  Sometimes what you need is never enough  Sometimes there's fear  Sometimes there's love  So breathe slow  Just let it go, my love  Breathe slow  Tonight  Sometimes we give  Sometimes we take  Sometimes everything that you feel is fake  Sometimes we're high  Sometimes we're low  So breathe slow  Just let it go, my love  Breathe slow  Just let it go, my love  Breathe slow  Tonight...
13.
Wait, For it...  Weightlessness...  The people here on earth they are all waiting  & me I just sit staring into space  The lost souls in their rocketships still orbiting the moon  Don't you get your hopes up  They wont be home anytime soon  The wait goes...  On & On & On & On & On...  On & On & On & On & On...  Waiting here for weightlessness  Waiting here for weightlessness
14.
Hello Alien Sun
15.
Shutdown Turn the clocks back You’ve got a lot to answer for
16.
Sometimes, I  Want to  Run & Hide  Run & Hide  Sometimes, I  Want to  Run & Hide  Run & Hide  Away  From you...  Sometimes, I  Get a...  Little bit lost  Little bit lost  So, I  Want to  Run & Hide  Run & Hide  Away from everything that I see  Away from me...

about

“Pop! Goes the People” was originally written and recorded in 2008, although a ‘condensed version’ of the album did not see the light of day until much later, in 2012. (Due to reasons I won’t bore folks with) 

This year sees its ten year anniversary, so I decided to pull the old ten track version, restore it to its former sixteen track glory and have the whole album remastered. For me it’s been given a new lease of life and I’ve enjoyed rediscovering these songs, which serve as an audio-diary of a time in my life that I won’t soon forget.
