... the SEPTEMBER CLUES soundtrack
     LYRICS and CREDITS


Most of the music used for the September Clues soundtrack are songs I wrote for my live project/and 5-piece band, "The Social Service". Our stage set-up can be pretty hairy - at times complete with circus-acrobatics !

SLIMEBOX (a tribute to Frank Zappa)

(sampled choir)
I am the slime from your video
Oozin along on your living room floor

I am the slime from your video
Cant stop the slime, people, look at me go

Goes by
As life goes by
I never hurry

JAHMAN

When the writingís on the wall
When the writingís on the wall
You draw a line across your mind
When the writingís on the wall
You turn around to see if Iím still around
When the writingís on the wall
You see the world spinning round

For tonight Iíll pray
For tonight Iíll pray

When the writingís on the wall

The writingís on the wall
The writingís on the wall
No oh no oh Jah no no

When the writingís on the wall


TIME OUT

íGood morning Sir, itís nine thirty,
Time for you to save the planet !í

Look at me, Iím down by law
Look at we, Weíre down by law
You have no right to tell me
Time isnít running out
You have no right to tell me
Time isnít running out

Look at me, Iím down by law

Look at we, Weíre down by law
You have no right to tell me
Time isnít running out
You have no right to tell me
Time isnít running out


WONDERFOOL WORLD

(Latest news from the Milano stock exchange)
Itís a wonderfool, wonderfool world, wonderfool world!


GRAY

What will you do when the work is done
When youíve finished everything
All the chores, all the things you never want to do
What will you do when the work is done, where will you go?
What will you do when the work is done?Ö

Iíll be sailing
To the island of the monkey and the spring
Iíll be sailing
Looking for the island of the spring

What will you do when the work is done?
What will you doÖwhen the work is done?

Iíll be sailing
Well you know I miss my naking of my dream
Iíll be sailing
Running after plastic monies on the reef

Let go, Let go

Where will you go when the work is done ?
I wonder...


SEVEN SEAS (a Eurythmics tribute)

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree
Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree
Travelled the world and the seven seas
Everybodyís looking for something
Looking for something
Sweet dreams are made of this

Coz I Ė Iíll never disagree
And you - youíll never see
Travelled the world and the seven seas
Everybodyís looking for something

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree
Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree
Travelled the world and the seven seas
Everybodyís looking for something
Looking - for something...


WOMB

When the stars will start to shine
Weíll be moving in the womb
When the stars will start to shine
Weíll be moving in the womb
What Iím telling you Ė what Iím telling you
What Iím telling you Ė what Iím telling you
Is the truth

What Iím telling you Ė what Iím telling you Ė what Iím telling you
Weíll be moving in the womb
When the stars will start to shine
Weíll be moving in the womb
What Iím telling you Ė what Iím telling youĖ what Iím telling you


DREAMS

All these funny dreams I do
Like swimming in the air
Or maybe
Riding on a gentle storm
While I just donít seem to care
If I should ever fall
If I should ever fall
I just donít seem to care

All these funny dreams I do
Like swimming in the air
Riding on a gentle storm
While I just donít seem to care
If I should ever fall

I FALL DOWN
IíM FALLING DOWN
I FALL DOWN
IíM FALLING DOWN

Funny how those scary dreams
They seem to make me laugh
I store the pictures of my mind
With all the cheesy photographs

I FALL DOWN
IíM FALLING DOWN
I FALL DOWN
IíM FALLING DOWN



THE SOCIAL SERVICE

I've been under a steady storm of enquiries regarding the September Clues music and my (currently idle) band - a great morale booster in these tough days for struggling musicians... So now I've finally found the time to put together and remix a 17-track album: It should at least save me from further laments from my old Norwegian buddy in Rome (a former vitriolic music critic) who was getting petulant : "Simon, I'm getting raving mad at having to upload your damn videos on my PC to play that terrific soundtrack! I want it in my car - now!" To be perfectly honest, my Norwegian friend isn't the only soul impatient with me: the "Social Service" band members are twisting my arms to get back touring on a regular basis - and take a break with my world-saving efforts... It's going to happen, folks, it's going to happen - start booking the band NOW!



THE BAND
