So can anyone decipher any of the lyrics so far?

Concrete:

-------------------------------------------------------------
------------ in the concrete jungle, there's a concrete wildness
Lookin for love ------------------
Lookin' for love, but love ain't lookin' for me

Surrender ---------------------------------
Searching for a ----- ----- woman ---------

Looking for an AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHAA (random shouting)
Concrete

Then comes the solo and I can't make out anything after that.

Any help would be appreciated, with all the new stuff. I will try and work out some more later on.

This is what I think it is:

I walk alone like a concrete lion in the concrete wilderness
Somewhere deep in the concrete jungle lives a concrete lioness

Searching for a sweet lady woman who'll show a/her little body

Nailed it, well done.

I still think that fourth line might be 'Love ain't looking for me'. Can't tell though.

Concrete

I walk alone like a concrete lion in a concrete wilderness.
Somewhere deep in the concrete jungle is a concrete lioness.

Looking for love. Let me see what there's to see.
Looking for love, but love doesn't look for me.

Tonight I'm whining to people: they don't even look to me.
Searching for a sweet lady woman to share her little body.
Looking for a lioness.

Carry around like a concrete tiger ............... concrete tigress
......................... concrete ...................... concrete .................

Looking for love ................................................................
Looking for love ................................................................

Tonight I'm whining to people: they don't even look to me.
Searching for a sweet lady woman to share her little body.
Looking for a lioness.

So greedy (?) by whining to people: they don't even look to me.
Searching for a sweet lady woman to share her little body.
Looking for a lioness.

I think the first line of Cannonball is "Sitting down all alone in the dark"

Nope, you haven't missed any.

Can't Believe It's Not Love We're Makin'

Baby it’s been fun, though I am disgusted of what I have found
Can’t you see you hit me like a ----
---- cycle of love
Now it’s just a swirling down ----
The temperatures ---- long ago
I cannot get it up, oooh

Can't believe it's not love we're makin'
I’m dying, I’m shaking
Can't believe it's not love we're makin'
---- you and me ----
----
I couldn’t believe a second ----

---- where we made it
---- ----
---- that you cannot fight
---- irresistible ----
That’s the way we do it
I also think ----

Can't believe it's not love we're makin'
I’m sorry, I’m shaking
Can't believe it's not love we're makin'
---- you and me ----
----
I couldn’t believe a second ----

Can't believe it's not love we're makin'
You said you loved me but you was faking
Can't believe it's not love we're makin'
Can't believe it's not love we're makin'
Oooh, yeah, oooh

In a recent interview I listened to, Dan mentions a new song called 'Sutton Hoo', described as a work in progress for 8 years, a long prog-rock epic where you'll have to buy an extra hard drive just to fit it on.

He also describes the story behind the song, and also the story behind Nothing's Gonna Stop Us.

Anyway, have a listen...

About 6:45 onwards.

Pat Pong

Looking for something to do

Was when I, first saw you

Well I heard about the beautiful lady boys
But nature couldn't make up her mind
-------------------------
Was all that I felt from behind

----------------- pretend

Buy myself some company, buy myself a friend
-------------------------

Can anyone else finish it off?

Why would they re title Can't Believe It's Not Love We're Making to Out Of This World when it's not mentioned in the lyrics, strange, but amazing song though. :)

According to Frankie the title is "Can't Believe It's Not Love We're Making (Out Of This World)" and "Concrete Lion" (not "Concrete") but he said some of the titles may change though.

He also stated that Nothing's Gonna Stop Us might be released as a single.

For Concrete, the bit before the chorus, could it be:

Surrounded by millions of people, hopin' they're not after me.
Searching for a sweet lady woman to share a little body.

Yes, I think you are right.

I have to correct what I wrote. The chorus of Concrete may say:

"Tonight I'm whining to people: they won't give love to me.
Searching for a sweet lady woman to share her little body.
Looking for a lioness."

If you look at this video at 3:13 you can clearly hear that he is singing "Surrounded" and "millions of people", not "tonight I'm whining to the people" ;)
