The Elephant 03:48
These flats ain't pretty But I bet they cost a lot Now their surroundings have been replaced Soon they'll be easy walking distance from the northern line Red brick Riverside I can see the power station And written on the side: "I am browsable, I'm intimate, I'm a real place for real people I am browsable, I'm intimate" But I'm having second thoughts... So I call up the elephant and ask: "Do you like your new neighbours? Are they friendly? Do they keep you up at night? Perhaps they should."

WALK OUT 01:56
Walk out of the city till you see fields I wonder how far the sea is in this direction? Keep to a straight line And it's not so difficult Making a movement A step at a time Starting spontaneous Drawing a radius Certainly beats Going round in circles Step by step see the gradients Between train stations Smell the air get fresher The pressure of city life Soon dissipates Walk into the night And start tallying stars If you walk 'til the morning That noise is the birds That you're hearing for the first time And it's not so difficult Making a movement A step at a time Starting spontaneous Drawing a radius Certainly beats Going round in circles If you believe what you hear and don't try prove it wrong You'll think leaving the city has never been done If you believe what you hear and don't try prove it wrong You'll think leaving the city has never been done

Old Lady 04:05
It's dark It's dark and I want it It's dark It's dark and I need it Old lady In your castle Did you know I was down here? Well I'm down here.

If you want to be smaller The city is your friend You don't have to be noticed Right here Standing over water I am overcome But nothing lasts forever Nothing, nothing It's falling down It's not unique Just like everything else It's falling down I am a divider The border at my feet From one world to another Dots and dashes Through me, through me Unfathomable monster Hopelessly ingrained But nothing lasts forever Nothing, nothing It's falling down It's not unique Just like everything else It's falling down London bridge is falling down Falling down Falling down London bridge is falling down My fair lady
