Track Name: Unstable Picnic
There’s something in the walls
Someone in the boards
Crawling through the holes
Watching through the doors
The sun is cured
The moon is dead
And you can hear what the voice said

There’s something in the walls
Someone in the boards
Crawling through the holes
Watching through the doors
There is no tomorrow
There’s a single moment left inside
Track Name: I Thought I'd Walked In Shit But It Was A Child's Mitten
Feet on bone
Feet on skin
Feet on history rotting

The rain burns and falls for days
Washes away
Those made useless by their own aims

Feet on trade
Feet on kings
Feet on history repeating

The rain burns and falls for days
Washes away
Those made useless by their own aims

Clouds die
Like the hearts
Of those who ate away at what could have been
Ate away at you and me
Track Name: John Travolta Looks Like An Action Man Who's Been Put In A Microwave
Where will you be
Where will you be when
Where will you be when it all falls down

How will you feel
How will you feel when
How will you feel when it all falls down

What will you see
What will you see when
What will you see when it’s all gone

The threat they pose
Will only be seen by history

Stories never told
Ripped from time
Creating narratives
Quiet now
Pixelated frames
Of lost images
Of lost times
Of lost lives
Track Name: You Can't Come In My Kayak
Pace wastelands
Pace the nothing left behind
Eaten by time
Eaten
Left behind
In time
Nothing remains
Everyone pays

Pace wastelands
Pace the nothing left behind
Eaten by time
Eaten
We ate it all
Watched cities fall
Kicking debris
That used to be

Now we remain in these times
Painted across every sky
Based on hate
Now long dead
We see what we used to see
Track Name: Doom & Gloom & Dio Room
Eating ourselves with the methods
We use to consume
Loosing ourselves in the ways
We choose to find
Burning ourselves
To stay warm

Killing ourselves with excuses
We find to carry on
Cutting throats to get ahead
In the race to find
Who can freeze first
When the winter comes

When the winter comes
When the winter
When the winter comes
When the winter
Track Name: I Haven't Had Crumpets In Ages And Now I Can Dance Really Well
The mechanics that allow
Our every move
Held together with glue
And vague rules
Seen from a distance
Melt away
So easily

Melt into hands
Melt into minds
Twin our existence

Down here we see
Individuality
Forming one whole
Of nothing
Everyone of us
Washed away
By final rains

Melt into hands
Melt into minds
Twin our existence
Track Name: Too Jittery For Magic
Anticipation lost
Anticipation left to grey
A congregation lost
A congregation left to find their own way

I’m just an animal
Trying to lose myself
In everything that moves
A photocopy if someone else

I’m just an animal
Trying to stop making sense
Trying to grab a hold
Of anything

Definite no longer define
Lines no longer straight
Every stop sign ignored
Definite no longer define
Lines no longer straight
Complexities litter every turn

No brakes left
No rules to break
Track Name: The Turtle Is In The Handbag
All of our finest moments never written down
Lost to dust
Lost to dust
Under our feet
We’re lost too

We killed off
All the useless things we used to do
We killed off
All the useless things that kept our spirits free
All the things that kept us off our knees
All those useless things

All of our finest moments never written down
Lost to dust
Lost to dust
Under our feet
We’re lost too

We killed off
All the danger that we used to feel
We killed off
All discomforts that kept our spirits true
All the scars that marked what we’ve been through
Made us useless

All of our finest moments never written down
Lost to dust
Lost to dust
Under our feet
We’re lost too
Track Name: Are You Telling Me Ipswich Has No Fun Points?
Easily consumed
It’s over
Easily disposed
It’s over
Easily thrown away
We’re left with what?

Easily maintained
It’s over
Easily destroyed
It’s over
Easily covered up
We’re left with what?

Through the greed of a privileged few
Through a need for everything to be new
For the comfort of the privileged few
Fuck the privileged few

It’s over
It’s over
It’s over
It’s over
Track Name: The Only Good Wham Is A Wham Bar
No words written
When the book is lost
No time left
When the food is gone

The clock always moves
Until time runs dry

No one left to find
Evidence
Nowhere left
When the map is left behind

The clock always moves
Until time runs dry

No dismantling
Left to complete
Systems all sold
Ideas complete
No production line
No one left to dare
No one left to change
No one left to care
Track Name: The Sat-Nav Keeps Saying Cock Ring Road
With tiny increments
We march into the mouth of death
Plastic paradise
Naturally selected
Piled over
Filled in
Take the future
RIp it up
Take our future

Fuck corporations
Fuck their exclusions
Taken everything that’s good
Fuck corporations
Fuck benefits equations
Fuck the governments agents
Psychopathic every one
Fuck corporations
Track Name: I Opened A Beer With A Bible
Safety blinds us all
Comfort blinds us all

Left the door wide
For the power to seep through
Into the very floor
That keeps this house
We all share from falling down

Safety blinds us all
Comfort blinds us all
Track Name: I Want To Get A Chicken And Call It Shawn Michaels
Eat ourselves under the weight
That we threw away
Again and again
On and on

We’ll rot in this dead world
Blind to the simplest mask
Chinese whispers from the top down
Fooled

Fed into our homes for generations

Blind to the simplest mask
Chinese whispers from the top down
Fooled by a pyramid scheme
Track Name: I Thought I'd Come Up With Something But I Think I May Have Just Written Mongaloid By Devo
There’s something in the air
Something of humanity lost
There’s something dead in us all
We transfer outside ourselves
Outside ourselves

They lead the way with broken headlights
Into darkness

There’s something inside us all
Running to our own downfall
In love with self sabotage
We transfer all blame
Outside ourselves

They lead the way with broken headlights
Into darkness

Losing subtleties
With every generation
Every passing day
So much more to pay
For past generations
No best option left
For our generation
Now we watch it fall
We fucked it all
We fucked it all
