Track Name: Don't Ask, Don't Get
If you don't ask
then you don't get
I don't know what else
you'd expect
from life
You could get
what you like

People always
tell me that
I don't understand
their lives
but I do
They lie
so do you

You're better sorry
than you are safe
Track Name: Disappoint
I haven't seen you
for so very long
My hands are so cold
My fingers down to the bone

Rooms are sterile
at least mine anyway
I'm gone tomorrow
but I'm here today

I can't be who
you want me to be

We'll fall again
We fall straight to the ground
No-one ever
notices a sound

I can't be who you want me to be
I can't believe who you choose to be

I can't be who you want me to be
I can't believe who you choose to be
I can't see whatever it is you see
I can't be who you want me to be
Track Name: Absynthe Makes The Heart Go Wander
There's a muscle bound foetus
hanging round your neck
And I know that he will beat us because
he knows how to make me sick
ADHDJ
plays all of your favourite songs
You'll try your best to dance along
before you know the night has gone
Fighting for the taste of
animals and vinegar
Panda eyes and endless sighs
while mayonnaise drips down your thigh

Plagiarised intelligence
it always makes perfect sense
I'll give it all up up for lent
we'll make the most of our weekend
Stand in the circle
We'll end all the hurting
Whisky and lemonade
the planets all begin to fade
Words mental refuse
I refuse to believe
that hearts were ever
meant to be worn on sleeves
And I find it hard to buy
that you know my name
Because I am just some guy
who's fearful of fame
Track Name: Blackout
I met a girl once
she told her name
I don't remember it
but it's all the same
I had had some alcohol
so we got to talking
Things were going pretty well
but then she started walking

I black out
I black out
I crack out
I bleed

I spent the next few weeks
trying to bump into her
Each day was so fruitless
that I started to get deterred
Then I saw her on the street
and we shared a smile
Next time I would see her
would take a fucking while

I black out
I black out
I bleed out
I crack out

But then one day
I wanted to get somewhere
So I started
to look everywhere
And then it came to me
The change was supposed to be in me
Oh yeah it came to me

I black out
I black out
I bleed out
I crack out

Do yourself a favour
always talk to strangers
Don't worry about danger
just always talk to strangers
Do yourself a favour
always talk to strangers
Don't worry about danger
just always talk to strangers
Track Name: I of the Storm
I want to feel safe
with you in my arms tonight
and I won't
let go
no I won't
let you go
Because you won't
ever come back

I left you in a state
of confused blind rage
but I won't
let you down
no I won't
let you down

And it feels like I can see my time
it feels like I can see my time
And it seems like I'm feeling fine
and it feels like I can see my time

I wanted some advice
on how to keep this alive
but I won't
let you down
no I won't let you down

And no I won't
let you down
Track Name: Wager
Well the Devil came along
and asked for my time
He turned to me and said
'Come along and play my game
I'll make it worth your while'
A decision I regret

Well I can't afford a car
and I'm going nowhere
I'm drowning in my sin
So I took him for his word
and then I bet my love
but I could not win

They always said
that you should not mess
with evil
You cannot exist
but I can't resist
your golden hand

Now I'm drunk and I'm afraid
and I've paid the price of pride
but it lingers overhead
Turn the taxing into simple
for the cost of my life
And you will tempt again
And you will tempt again
And you will tempt again
Track Name: Mr. Moriarty
Mr Moriarty
do you want to come and party
tonight?
We got spiced rum and cola
and with any luck
we will see a fight

I met your friend Regina
with a designer vagina
she's crazy
You know I kinda like her
but I couldn't ever handle her
I'm lazy

See all those guys
that are all wearing ties
they're important
But feel sympathy for them
because they are probably
impotent

You know I got a question
do I make a good impression?
I'm quiet
You said I've got a choice
I could choose to raise my voice
I'll try it

We're gonna have a party
We're gonna have a party
We're gonna have a party
and our house is gonna get wrecked
We're gonna have a party
We're gonna have a party
We're gonna have a party
We're gonna lose our deposit
Track Name: Lifeboat
Christians preach forgiveness
but they still have their own limits
You know, a prison's not a prison
without the sinners that live in it
The universe is irritating
and everything goes wrong
What else can you do
except cry or sing along?

So don't mind me
I'm just floating in the sea
Waiting for the lifeboat
to rescue me

Awarded a gold medal
for the courage you have shown
Step out into the street
to find that you are still unknown
The universe seems so unfair
and everything falls down
The only thing that's up to you
is to smile or to frown

So don't mind me
I'm just floating in the sea
Waiting for the lifeboat
to rescue me

You've always been so popular
but they all call you a tease
You don't mean nothing by it
you're just scared of the disease
The universe can be so cruel
and everyone is insane
Just remember that you don't
have to play their game

So don't mind me
I'm just floating in the sea
Waiting for the lifeboat
to rescue me
Track Name: A Decade Later
You'll wake up
at the crack of dawn
Get dressed and
put your tie on
You don't want to
go to school today
But you know that it's
the only way

Where did the time go?
Where did the time go?

You'll meet up
when the day comes to an end
Hang out with
all your new found friends
You'll grow up
and you'll get yourself a job
Find your place
in the office daily mob

Where did the time go?
Where did the time go?

Some will mate
and have themselves a kid
Make the same mistakes
their parents did
Some get married
while others will stay alone
Some won't make it
as far as leaving home

Where did the time go?
Where did the time go?
Where did the time go?
Where did the time go?
Track Name: Cheer Up
I just want you to be happy
I'm tired of seeing you so down
I know you've had a hard time lately
but there's no use in always moping around

While we sit and blame this little boulder
The planet isn't trying to fuck us around
Each day we are growing a little older
Aren't you worried that our time will run out?
Track Name: Well I Guess
Fall in a hole
Fall in a hole
Fall in a hole
with me
And we will
stay together
for eternity

It don't sit well
It don't sit well
It don't sit well
with me
but there is nothing
better
that I can see

Well I guess
we reside
in a well
Well I guess
you're beside
me now
Well I guess
you reside
down in hell
Well I guess
you're inside
me now

Show me your soul
Come on, show me your soul
Show your soul
to me
So that I can be the judge
of whether or not
it's worthy

I used to know
I used to know
how we were supposed
to be
But something changed
and now everything
feels dirty

Well I guess
we reside
in a well
Well I guess
you're beside
me now
Well I guess
you reside
down in hell
Well I guess
you're inside
me now
Track Name: Cars From The 70s
I drove cars that looked like
they came from the seventies
I saw hearts beating
inside the chests of my enemies

I've lost friends due to geographical
inconvenience
I've woke up mornings and thought to myself
'it makes no sense'

So when do we go?
When do we go home?
When do we know
that we are not alone?

I saw the future past and the present
it's all the same
We'll go to spaces and stay there
and give the place a name

We'll grow kids there and we'll
send them to school
It gets big there we'll decide it's
time to move

So when do we go?
When do we go home?
When do we know
that we are not alone?

I split my eyes open and left
the planet of sleep
I get so tired I forgot what's
not to be weak

I sink through the couch and
into the sea
Drive through deserts in cars
from the seventies

So when do we go?
When do we go home?
When do we know
that we are not alone?
When do we go?
When do we go home?
When do we know
that we are not alone?
