Track Name: Been Down
standing on the porch, a familiar house
pretty sure i've been here before
below a
worn sorta knocka and a peep hole just to stop ya
on a door that's all scratched up and scored
i feel a
niggle then a twitch as my hand makes a fist just one
knock away my arm it sways an
inkling that my knuckles have missed

i've been down
one or two times
i’ll be down more
i've been down
one or two times
i’ll be down more
one or two times
I bet there’ll be more
i've been down
one or two times
i’ll be down more...times
I fear more in store

treat us mean through
demon deeds
keep us keen
we've
human
needs...

i'm at the
bottom of stairs a buncha tables some chairs
refrigerator open and bare
and in
the corner on the wall there shines a
light from the hall the
hall from as a kid
i was scared but
i’m no longer fraid of he
now I’m afraid of me...

feel damn worn
right about now..
but still not out
been worn down
but i'll tell you now..
i'm not knocked down
feel’n damn worn
right about now..
but still not out
been worn down
but i'll tell you now..
i'm not knocked out..eww
just need a lie down

treat us mean we’'re
human beings
treat us fair we’re
heathens
just like you....

and if god don’t like it
then he can bite me
if the gods above don't like it
then the same with the
stand through the gristle and lies
don’t frighten and flee...
Track Name: Mine The Stars, Traul The Sea
oh
i’d given up all hope at all..
I was
just not sane
i'm not just say’n it to make you feel small
can’t bare to see you
fall down on your
knees cos something’s
wrong with me

so
they may
say oh that
time heals
all but i'm
just not sure i'm
just not sure
just not sure they’ve ever felt this sore
we
all know who they cos they're
far too short to fall so far...

so
mine the stars and
traul the seas...
Track Name: Schlafwandeln Im Stadtpark
I
caught you out sleepwalking in our park i'd
seen you there before when it was dark you
seemed to be so happy there amoung the trees still
death shock went directly to my knees
I
watched your most disturbing fingers bend
colourfast and creepy at their ends
distinctly heard the crackling to life of a brass band your
fingers summoned me like mother's hands...
(stars just fall like grains of sand...)
I
dripped down to my knees and bent to crawl and
followed as we vanished through thin walls i
took you in and kept you hidden in my room
piano in the corner as your tomb

sip and breathe your vapour makes me ill the
only thing to save me is my pill so
should you find yourself sleepwalking in the dark please
crack a branch or scream to stop my heart...
Track Name: Medicine
i'm
finding it hard to rest at night i
just can't get to sleep
and nightmares only scare away
all my counted sheep my
waking hours are drifting by
days fade away
and when i take the papers out can' t
stand the front page
avoid the front page
so i
chucked away the tv
coz all the news is bad
37 different channels
spewing out the same old crap
like..
medicine...
so i
went to see the doctor cos
they’re supposed to heal but
all she said was take these tablets
three times a day with meals
medicine
now i'm on...
m.e.d.i.c.i.n.e
so
slip inside your capsule
safe from all life's spills
soon you will feel so much better
when you're popping pills!
oh
m.e.d.i.c.i.n.e
medicine...
take your pills and you'll be fine
Track Name: Identity Thief
"I Stole...Your identity"
Track Name: C.E.O
I Started life as a bottom feeder
down on the lower rung
I soon got cosy with the pay man
and so up I sprung
When my career prospects had all
crawled to a stop
I stole a leaf from your rule book baby
I sucked the bosse’s c*#@ YEAH!

Now i’m the CEO...

I used to make your coffee I
used to be the one you ignored
but now I chair all the meetings
coz i'm the head of the board YEAH!

Now i’m the CEO...
I’m the CE fuck’n O!

Who gives a shit I’m at large hey not me
Money can quash any charge
gotta dispel all delusions matey
Be in no doubt who’s in charge

I’m the cats meow
One with all the know how
You can whinge and moan But
Don’t forget it’s you that I own YEAH!

I’m the CEO...
I’m the man of the mo-ment!
Track Name: Life Wipes The Smile Off Your Face
Life wipes the smile off your face
if you let it it will bring you down
don't let it pull you down now
Track Name: Starched White Collars
Starched white collars...

If your
look’n for the why the
where-how and reasons
this is not the time or the
place or the season so
swallow your pride these
mouths need feed’n better
join the long line in the
search for meaning

(you’ve
given your life for
no good reason they
say it’s alright but
they’re just teas’n!)

You’ve done a
hell alot of nuth’n you’ve
gained a whole lot less your
life needs rearrang’n your
head’s a messy desk so
go ahead and put off the
scandal til tomorrow you’ve
scuppered much more
time than you could borrow in

Starched white collars...

So
take a bow to your wage put your
selflessness on display. your
reasonless self-abase until the
penny drops it’s ok I guess?

When
all the things you buy only make you iller live
for your next pay with TV as filler you
don’t have to be Julius Sumner Miller to
know that time only runs backwards in a mirror

(they say there’s no life...If
there’s no meaning but
there’s no time if
there’s no being...)

No
handlebars and no brakes. You’ve
given control away. The
heady weight on your frame. Has
stolen life’s course astray...

starched white collars

So if
there’s no life
there’s no meaning
dry your fuck’n eyes cos
this is not eden!

Starched white collars...
Track Name: Supersize My Soul
I’d like to pick you pick
part from part and
read your d.n.a
with
tweezers i could
make a start, sort
out your wicked ways
i'm fearless
but could you care less?

i'll shove my head in a bag
if you'd only be glad
i'll
try it on tomorrow
must i take all the blame
for your pain and your sorrow?

it’s
true I like to stand around you'd
ghasp at what i've seen...
these
punishments i hand them out you
might call it obscene...
it's my weakness, my weakness

it's a racket of a battle for my sanity
a lot of lost opportunities
wanna
bring things back round to how they used to b cos
bob'n round in lonely seas is not for me

the
lord he's in the walls he's in the wires and the cables
your
lord who sees all he's in the cracks under your table
your
lord she stokes the fires, bends the law creates the fables
our
lord who rules our lives, turns us all blind and breeds hatred

if you think you’ve felt about the worst that you could feel
just stick around and see
just how bad things could be

for love of god...
so...
if you think god’s great
put your feet at the gate
it's time for your correction
so why fuck’n wait
if your game
run him for election

a simple act of fate
is all it will take for resurrection
it will just be so great
for your faith
to spread like an infection

Supersize my soul...
Track Name: Shake The Bone At Us
like
ghosts on the shoreline we
shook you from your dreamtime you
lead us to water and
waited for us to leave this
land that kept you
sheltered from us
for all this time now
mortar and chrome leeds you
to tow the line
you
wake every morning
as if it's your last
torturous history
we live at large the
children we stole from you
costs us in souls we're
counting their losses
as we grow old
so...
shake the bone at us, shake the bone
we've
drowned you in sorrow as
deep as any lake now
white man's poison
flows through your veins we
breed upon these fatal shores
thousand years yours the
guilt of all our evil deeds
from us it pours
so keep
shaking the bone at us
shake the bone
SHAKE!
