1. The Silver Surfer (Music: Tim Hunter, Lyrics: Thierry Sportouche) I’m the Ocean gypsy, I’m the Silver surfer, in the clouds I’m the earthly gypsy Alone in a vessel, with my dog I go across the world, and through time I don’t care about your borders or colours You’re just a human to my eyes I travel through the skies Drinking at the Milky Way Eating a Mars Chocolate bar On a moonlight drive Let's swim to the moon You’ll feel good good vibrations When you’ll see Venus Waiting for your love Waiting for your love Waiting for your love Look what they have done to our blue planet! Look what they have done to our earth! I’m the Ocean gypsy, I’m the Silver surfer, in the clouds I’m the earthly gypsy Alone in a vessel, with my dog I go across the world, and through time I don’t care about your borders or colours You’re just a human to my eyes

2. Dreamland (Rock Power) (Music: Tim Hunter, Lyrics: Thierry Sportouche) J’ai vu la Grosse Pomme Dévorer des hommes, Par tempéraments Sur les bords de la Tamise Il est toujours de mise De grossir l’unemployment Les dames d’Amsterdam Ne « rollent » plus les quidams Sur le mur de Berlin Ne planent plus de refrain L.A. et Frisco Se shootent à la techno Tokyo exhume son vieux kimono A Paris, on râpe toujours des tuyaux Brûlez guitares, brisez pianos Je rockerai avec mon sang, je rockerai avec mes os Baillonnez, taisez ! Je rockerai media vocce ! Chantez, hurlez ! Rock’n roll is here to stay !

Unfollow You, Unfollow Me (Lyrics and Music: Tim Hunter) Unfollow You, Unfollow Me Yes, We’re parting company Unfollow You, Unfollow Me I don’t like your Facebook posts Your Facebook Boasts Tell Me why your news is fake Give me a break Unfollow You, Unfollow Me Yes, We’re parting company Unfollow You, Unfollow Me Unfollow You: Don’t like your rants Unfollow Me: Yes, We’re parting company Don’t like your angst Unfollow You, Unfollow Me

4. Concrete Heart (Music: Tim Hunter, Lyrics: Thierry Sportouche) Sometimes out of the swell Emerges someone’s call Or even helpless hands Quickly gulped by the crowd I’m looking for tenderness in Concrete Hearts I’m looking for tenderness in broken hearts Alone on my cloud I’d like to forget a biting cold growing in my heart I’m looking for tenderness in Concrete Hearts I’m looking for tenderness in broken hearts I’m looking for tenderness in Concrete Hearts I’m looking for tenderness in broken hearts Où es-tu dans cette foule ? Où es-tu dans cette houle ? Parmi ces noyés sans âge, Je cherche ton image.

5. The Last Blade Of English Grass (Lyrics and Music: Tim Hunter) They came into the cities And the cities they did fill And into the countryside they overspilled Chorus: Well we did nothing about it We seemed to lack the will But for The Last Blade Of English grass Tears are gonna spill The Last Blade Of English grass Tears are gonna spill We’re The Guardians of the English garden We’re The Guardians of the English garden They concreted the greenbelt Into the earth they drilled They told it was ok And they are telling us that still Chorus We will fight your sniggers And your country haters With our rakes and our seed sowers We will fight your diggers And your excavators With our rakes and our lawn mowers Otherwise people will say: Why didn’t you do something about it? Why didn’t you do something about it? Something to save it For The Last Blade Of English Grass Why didn’t you do something to save it? Why didn’t you do something to save it?

6. Never Say Never My Friend (Lyrics and Music: Tim Hunter) Jamais dire jamais, Jamais dire jamais, There’s no compromise So it’s no surprise To find we’re getting nowhere fast With all these lies Procrastination, won’t save the nation It won’t save us from devastation You can never say never my friend It’s not the end You can never say never Jamais dire jamais, Jamais dire jamais, You know sometimes We all change our minds Otherwise we find the Blind leading the Blind Oversimplification Of the situation Could lead to excommunication You can never say never my friend You can never say never my friend You can never say never my friend Jamais, Jamais

9. The King of Sun (Music: Tim Hunter; Lyrics: Thierry Sportouche and Tim Hunter) The lonely one, The King Of Sun The lonely one The lonely One brought us Sun His chariot he’d always ride And till the day was gone He made sure Icarus won't fly The lonely One, the King of Sun The lonely One, brought us all life on earth But at sunset the King did not shine His Crimson rays he would hide For this was his darkest time For the King searched for a bride He could not go on alone for he needed someone,he couldn't stop weeping and pour us his rain, and pour us his pain

10. Ys the lost city of Brittany (Music and Lyrics: Tim Hunter) Ys the lost city of Brittany Ys the lost city of Brittany The Fortress of Mystery Swallowed into the sea When the tide is low, some of the towers of Ys can be seen And Bells from its temples can be heard Ys was the most beautiful city in the world, With great white palaces and temples to the old gods. I remember many moons ago We spent some time in Saint Malo Talking bout the Celtic legends Drinking Calvados I thought those days would never end Ys the lost city of Brittany Ys the lost city of Brittany The Fortress of Mystery Swallowed into the sea In my dreams we returned to Brittany and we saw something rising from the sea, from the sea [Sea God] I am the Sea God risen from the Ocean Waves! I am the Sea God risen from the Ocean Waves! The Sea God told us how he wanted us to be happy, To join him in the city beneath the sea – you and me. Ys the lost city of Brittany Ys the lost city of Brittany The Fortress of Mystery Swallowed into the sea

11. The Interrogation (Music and Lyrics: Tim Hunter) We always come for you at night And wake you up with blinding lights. Our faces never smile There are no witnesses, no trials. You’re wiped out, vaporised And your existence is denied. Then it’s Room 101, comrade If you survive. But the lucky ones always die. It was your daughter who betrayed you She was listening at the keyhole. You were talking in your sleep And she told the patrols. You’re a stain that’s gotta be wiped clean A flaw in the machine. In Room 101 comrade, No one can hear you scream. Do you know what I mean? It was only a matter of time Before we found out your crime We’re always watching you Should you step out of line. We’ll torture you until your mind Is just a hollow, empty shell. We’ll crush you and torment you Really put you through hell. You’ll confess to everything And you’ll betray everyone. Then you’ll be ready for Room101. Room 101. This is an updated version of a song written in 1976, which was broadcast on BBC Radio Leicester in 1977.
