about

Nowhere To Go, Nothing To Do is the home of the alien chickens that go moo. You've never heard them? Well, Down on the Farm...

"At night when the stars come out, and I ask myself
"what is this all about?" As I gaze upon the Milky Way, and I sing to myself
"hey-oh, maybe right across the galaxy there's another farm with another me where the chickens go moo"

Track Name: Deal with the Devil
Deal with the Devil

When I were younger, still sweet in the head
I believed everything, that people said
To make it to the top in the world today
To make it to the top in any way hey!

I don’t know but I’ve been told,
To make it in this world you’ve got to sell your soul 
And I don’t know but people say
A deal with the devil is the only way

Well now I’m older, I got a head of grey
I’m a little bit wiser, to what people say
To make it to the top in the world today
To make it to the top in any way, hey!

I don’t know but I’ve been told,
To make it in this world you’ve got to sell your soul 
And I don’t know but people say
A deal with the devil is the only way

And I don’t know, I don’t know - hey now!
‘Cos I don’t wanna sell my soul,
I’m happy chasing rainbows for a pot of gold,
A deal with the devil ‘aint for me,
Happy letting life just be what it be

(repeat)

‘Cos I don’t want, to sell my soul hey now no no!
Track Name: Friends
Friends

Where would we be without our friends, in the end?
Where would we be without our mates? I’m telling you it wouldn’t be great
And I just want to be with my friends every day and every night

Where would we be without our friends, in the end?
Where would we be without our mates? I’m telling you it wouldn’t be great
And I just want to be with my friends every day and every night
Hanging with my friends makes me feel alright

Friends will help in times of need, share your joy when you succeed,
Give you hope when you don’t believe, friends will always stick around
Friends will never let you down that’s not true they’ll let you down
But they’ll always stick around even when they let you down (down, down down down)

Friends will help in times of need, share your joy when you succeed,
Give you hope when you do not believe, friends will always stick around
Friends will never let you down, that’s not true they’ll let you down
But they’ll always stick around, even when they let you down (down, down down down)

I just wanna be with my friends, and I just wanna be with my friends
And I just wanna be with my friends, hanging with my friends tonight
Track Name: Sitting in the Sun
Sitting in the Sun

Sitting in the sun, on another perfect day
Feeling the warmth of the afternoon just slip away
And I’d like to be, a blade of grass,
Swaying in the breeze, and if anyone should ask, I’ll tell them I’m just
Sitting in the sun, sitting in the sun
Sitting in the sun, sitting in the sun

Sitting in the sun, and I’m as happy as I can be
I got no worries, there ‘aint nothing bothering me
And I’d like to be a tall and stately tree
Reaching up into the sky, and if anyone should ask why,
I’ll tell them I’m just sitting in the sun, sitting in the sun

Sitting in the sun, it doesn’t get much better than this
Hanging out with Mother Nature in total bliss
And I’d like to be a river rolling down into the roaring sea
So that everyone around can see that I’m just
Sitting in the sun, sitting in the sun
And if rain should fall, (if rain should fall)
On this perfect day, (if rain should fall)
It make me smile more, (this perfect day)
Because a rainbow is on the way hey hey
Sitting in the sun, oh yeah (repeat to fade)
Track Name: Looking for God
Looking for God

I’ve been walking this path the most of my life
It’s two steps forward and one step back but that’s alright
And where it’ll go, I don’t really know
But I just met a wise man along the road, and he said if you're

Looking for god, take a look in your heart, when you’re
Searching for answers there’s no better place to start, there’s not a
Book that can tell you a thing you don’t already know, not a
Person around you can show you the way you should go

So I thanked the man kindly and I went on my way, as I walked down the
Path I could remember the words that he said
These things that I seek, I may never find, while I’m still looking
Outwards and not looking deep inside
Looking deep in side, yeah now

When you’re looking for god, take a look in your heart, when you’re
Searching for answers there’s no better place to start, there’s not a
Book that can tell you a thing you don’t already know, not a
Person around you can show you the way you should go
Oh the way to go oh yeah
Track Name: Down on the Farm
Down on the Farm

I’m just sitting on my farm, aint doing anybody any harm
Just sitting on my farm doing no one no harm
The cows in the field go moo, ‘cos that’s precisely what they’re supposed to do
And the chickens go cluck, pigs roll around in muck, down on the farm

At the end of the valley there’s a sea where I can see as far as I can see,
You just gotta believe me, there a sea where I can see as far as I can see,
Down on the farm

At night when the stars come out and I ask myself
What is this all about? as I gaze upon the milky way
And I say to myself hey ho, maybe right across the galaxy there’s another farm
With another me, where the chickens go moo,
‘cos that’s precisely what these alien chickens do and the pigs go

Cluck cluck cluckety cluck cluck cluck and the cows they roll around in muck
And I’m as happy as an alien cow in muck, down on my farm, I can’t believe my luck and I sing Hey oh, sing hey oh, hey hey hey, hey ohhhh and I sing
Hey oh, sing hey oh, sing hey hey hey, hey ohhhh down on the farm

I’m just sitting on me farm, ‘aint doing anybody any harm , down on the farm
Track Name: Shining Through
Shining Through

Woke up this morning, the sun was shining bright
Looked at my calendar and it was snowy white
So I looked for my notebook, with my to-do list
Well I couldn’t find it, well it wont be missed

I’ve got nowhere to be
I’ve got nothing to do
Well life is so easy when I take a step back
and let my soul come shining through

(repeat)

So I looked out the window, at the clouds passing by
Made pretty pictures, with my third eye
Took a walk in the garden, stopped to smell the flowers
Listened to the grass grow, for hours and hours

I’ve got nowhere to be (he’s got nowhere to be)
I’ve got nothing to do (he’s got nothing to do)
Well life is so easy when I take a step back
and let my soul come shining through

(repeat)

Well life is so easy when I take a step back
and let my soul come shining through

(repeat twice)
Track Name: (When it all Goes) My Way
(When it all Goes) My Way

One minute I’m up, the next I am down
And most of the time I just spin round and round
But when I’m song well I’m really on fire
I fell my passion, I feel my desire

What can I tell you about,
The way that this all came about
I don’t know what to say,
When it all goes my way

Sometimes it feel like I’m getting nowhere
At other times it feels like I’m already there
The path that I’m on well it feels so long
One foot after the other, I carry on strong

What can I tell you about,
The way that this all came about
I don’t know what to say,
When it all goes my way
Hey, hey today all goes my way, hey every day

What can I tell you about,
The way that this all came about
I don’t know what to say,
When it all goes my way
I don’t know what to say,
When it all goes my way
Track Name: Breathe
Breathe

Don’t worry about tomorrow, it’ll be what it will be and breathe
Don’t dwell on yesterday the past has gone why can’t you see and breathe
Take a moment from your day and just breathe
Let your worries slip away and breathe

Breathe and breathe yeah breathe

Take a moment from your day and just breathe
Let your worries slip away and breathe
Breathe, and breathe, yeah breathe

No mater what you’re doing, in your mind you can be free, and breathe
No matter where you are, close your eyes and let yourself dream, and breathe

Take a moment from your day and just breathe
Let your worries slip away and breathe
Breathe, and breathe, yeah breathe

And breathe, yeah breathe
Track Name: When Your Eyes Shine
WhenYour Eyes Shine

I see you in the corner of my sight, looks like the light, has caught you just right
You feel me looking and you raise your eyes, staring into mine, that’s when your eyes shine

Looks like somebody turned on the light just behind your eyes
I know I’l see that smile tonight, when I close my eyes, what a nice surprise

A pair of smiles rise in parallel, and I don’t want to break
This magical spell

We could be trapped here now for all time, as our gaze entwine
That’s when your eyes shine

Looks like somebody turned on the light just behind your eyes
I know I’l see that smile tonight, when I close my eyes
Track Name: I Can Fly
I Can Fly

You make me feel like I’m alright
You share your love and I come alive
You keep my hopes and dreams inspired
Where you’re around make me feel I can spread my wings and I can fly
Yes I can fly

When there is darkness you bring light
When I can’t see you are my sight
When I feel weak you show your might
When you’re around make me feel I can spread my wings and I can fly
Yes I can fly

Your stories make me laugh and cry
When we get talking well we’re up all night
You share your life you let me share mine
When you’re around make me feel I can spread my wings and I can fly
Yes I can fly
So very high
Into the sky

You make me feel like I’m alright
