Track Name: Love's Off The Hook
Always talking back you are,
Always taken back you are,
Always look immaculate to me.

Hallways filled with movie art,
Stills of third-rate astronauts,
Stuck up on the wall with plasticine,
Yeah, stuck up on the wall with blue plasticine.

Love’s off the hook for you,
Love’s off the hook for you.

Goats up trees and tambourines,
And me sat down stuck in between this,
‘til somebody tells ya what it means,
Can somebody please tell me what it means?

I went down to the subway,
To try to get in that way,
But I don’t like being underground,
With all those people around.

Love’s off the hook for you,
Love’s off the hook for you,

And in the night time and,
When it’s the right time and,
It’ll be a lifeline for two.

And in the night time and,
When it’s the right time and,
I’ll spend my lifetime with you.

Love’s off the hook for you,
Love’s off the hook for you,
Love’s off the hook for you,
Love’s off the hook for you.

And that’s enough.
Track Name: The Whiskey
It goes, it goes, it goes…

Such a gloomy day,
I think the sun is hung-over,
Looks like all the clouds can party.

Tripping myself up so much,
Can’t help but fall over,
Always getting in my own way.

If it wasn’t for the whiskey with my eggs,
I’d have no reason rising from my bed,
If it wasn’t for the whiskey following my breath,
I might... stop living... in my head.

Such a moody face for only one year older,
Look at all the clowns in my way,
Rolling through the years like they’re old newspaper,
Hoping for some sort of delay.

If it wasn’t for the whiskey with my toast,
I could see the things that matter to me most,
If it wasn’t for the whiskey fallin’ down my throat,
Every man’s castle needs a moat, (x3)

It goes, it goes, it goes…

Such a roomy place for one so introverted,
Look at all the clones in my way,
Your father died too young so,
He couldn’t’ ‘ve heard it…
But the idea of him is proud anyway.

If it wasn’t for the whiskey glass and ice
Believe me it could’ve been any other vice,
If it wasn’t for the whiskey picking all my fights,
I wouldn’t see the darkness in the light,
I wouldn’t see the darkness in the light,
No, I wouldn’t see the darkness in the light.
Track Name: The Champion Spy's Happy Ransom Day
They said it couldn’t be done,
They said he was-ah over the hill,
They said he was-ah flogging a dead horse well,
Now we’re all, under his spell.

Goes by the name of “The Champion Spy”,
20-20s of an eagle and eye,
Between you and me, he’s a hell of a guy,
Sooner or later boy that man’s gonna die but…

Not for all the tea in China,
Not for all the sun in Spain,
Not for all the glamour of the Hollywood Hills would I,
Give up the game.

Wish I was older and I knew,
Just what it is I want from you,
Wish I’d been bolder from the start,
Now it’s done gone fall apart.

He’s the string to everyone’s bow,
He’s in a much higher league though,
You wouldn’t know it, it’s not gonna show,
Sooner or later man that boy’s gonna grow but.

Not for all the sleaze in Vegas,
Not for all the pains of fame,
Not for all it’s glamour and it’s follies and thrills would I,
Give up the game.

Oh no...

You sold your soul and you’re the only one who knows,
You sold your soul and you’re the only one who knows

They said "We're not much for fun”,
Here comes the bus though you’d better get on it,
Don’t wait for no one,
Sooner or later girl you’re gonna run it but

Happy Ransom Day!
Happy Ransom Day!
Track Name: 51st State
Here’s to thinking outside of the box,
Here’s to constructing the debate,
Here’s to pulling up all of the socks,
Here’s to the 51st state.

The State of thought, with no last resort,
With a house of colour other than white,
The fate of the world in the hands of people,
Not in the arms that we send out to fight.

Here’s to thinking inside of the lines
Here’s to destruction of all of the hate,
Here’s to thinking we don’t know it all
Here’s to the 51st state.

The State that could live outside of the court,
With a moral basis from a thought-out source,
The fate of the world in the hands of a few,
Of course not, of course not, of course.

The State of thought, with no last resort,
With a house of colour other than white,
The fate of the world in the hands of people,
Not in the arms that we send out to fight.
Track Name: Feel The Temperature Rising
I’m too self-conscious and I’m conscious of the fact,
I’m facing my fears, by showing them my back,
And the emperor’s getting cold.

All the smoke and mirrors,
Generated from within us,
And the emperor’s getting cold,
And the emperor’s getting cold,
And the emperor’s getting cold.

You’re the emperor, so watch your temper,
Feel the temperature rising,
After what you did, it’s not surprising,
They made mincemeat outta you.

Get the creativity before the overdose,
He’s slipping again, oh no you don’t,
We’ve money invested, we’re banking on you,
We own your ass, we thought you knew!?

Hello friend or foe,
Hello friend or foe,
Hello friend or foe,
Hello friend or foe.

All the trees are withered,
Just in time for winter,
Huddle together for warmth,
Huddle together for warmth,
And the globe is warm.

You’re the emperor, so watch your temper,
Feel the temperature rising,
After what you did, it’s not surprising,
They made mincemeat outta you.

Hello friend or foe,
Hello friend or foe,
Hello friend or foe,
Hello friend or foe.
Track Name: A-Negative
I cut myself again,
A-negative response from within,
Soapy waters to wash away my skin,
Wear long t-shirts to hide away my sins.
Track Name: Cry Wolf
Banality of thought,
Clichés all around,
I’ve read it before, (Dude, you gotta read this)
Ideas used to the ground…

I could follow it through, (Go on man, just do it)
You could shout at me more, (Hey, you even listening to me?)
I could make it all up, (And then right, you'll never guess what happened)
Like I’ve done times before.

I could even cry wolf,
Let it in from the door,
Or I could just fight on,
But my tears will still pour…

I could wallow in self-pity, (Why's this happening to me...)
Self indulge ‘til I fall, (Better make it a double)
Vomit up a thought or two,
Or not fight on at all… (Ah, I give up)

I could even cry wolf,
Let it in from the door,
Or I could just fight on,
But my tears will still pour…

Or… I could just sleep,
Let the night clean me up,
Let dreams take me places,
Where half-full is the cup…

…and in the morning I’ll rise,
Like the sun does each day,
No need to feel low again,
Because it will be okay.
Track Name: World Made Of Water [rock mix]
I feel like a droplet of oil in a world made of water,
Not mixing with people the way that you seemingly oughta,
A chaotic mind in a world that rewards only order,
Yes I feel like a droplet of oil in a world made of water.

Well, I feel I could drop out of college late in the Autumn,
Go back to the ranch with my parents if they haven’t forgotten me,
Go back to the bar that I used to go back to so often,
‘Cos I feel like a droplet of oil in a world made of water.

And I feel so out of touch.
And I feel so darn unloved,
When this world, just isn’t enough,
For me, when enough is enough.

So I feel like a droplet of oil in a world made of water,
Not mixing with folks the way that you seemingly oughta be,
Wasting my time, every dollar and dime every quarter,
Yes I feel like a droplet of oil in a world made of water.

And I feel so out of touch.
And I feel so down on love,
When this world, just isn’t enough,
For me, when enough is enough.

I feel like I’m going mad,
And it feels like it’s already happened to me,
Can’t seem to find my way back,
From the madness that’s riddled inside of me.
Track Name: If You Say
If you say,
That I don’t have to cry,
Then I’ll stay dry.

If you say,
The Dodo wasn’t meant to fly,
I’ll say ok.

But if you say,
He’s better than me,
I think you’ll lie.

If you say,
I’m safe in your arms,
I won’t hide away.

If you say,
That you don’t need a God,
There’s no need to pray.

But if you say,
He’s better than me,
I think you’re right.
Track Name: Pandora
Oh Pandora, let me open it for ya,
Oh I’m so unhappy, it’s like euphoria,
Your reputation, oh don’t go before ya,
And your expectation is, that I’ll just ignore ya,

Well if you like, go to LA,
When’s your flight? Don’t wanna tell me eh?
Well I’ve gotta warn ya, that I won’t be here when,
You sit in California at the weekend.

‘Cos I’m flying off, right off the handle,
And I’m flipping off, just to cause a scandal,
Oh how big of me, I’m the rhymin’ vandal,
Oh if you think so much of me,
Then go and just light a candle.

Well if you like, go to LA,
When’s your flight? Don’t wanna tell me eh?
Well I’ve gotta warn ya, that I won’t be here when,
You sit in California at the weekend.

When we’re old, nothing left to say,
You’ll ask how’s the wife?
And she’ll be okay…
I won’t last the night,
And I’ll just fade away.

I think you’re right, go to LA,
When’s your flight? Don’t wanna tell me eh?
Well I’ve gotta warn ya, that I won’t be here when,
You sit in California at the weekend.
Track Name: One Big F
Denial makes it all better,
When I’m feeling under the weather,
A skeleton key for unlocking happiness for me,
As long as I’m alright Jack,
As long as I’m alright Jack.

I’ll get ‘round to it whenever,
Celebrate apathy together,
Feeling all kinds of pleasure,
mmmbaby you and I can go forever.

Yawnin’ in the morning Orange juice and watch the news,
Yawnin’ in the morning Orange juice and watch the news,
Yawnin’ in the morning Orange juice and watch the news,
Yawnin’ in the morning Orange juice and watch the news.

One Big F, One Big F

"You’re so out of tune with your attitude,
And you’re so damn rude in the afternoons,
You’re talking to yourself again Stu,
Still think the whole world’s against you?"

Your smile makes it all better,
When I’m feelin’ under the weather,
So far from me, the possibilities,
Something like that,
Something really like that.

It all leads to one big failure,
It all leads to one big failure,
It all leads to one big failure,
Ah yes it does…
