Track Name: A Sad Affair
A second look was all it took
The monster was let off the hook
Lightning struck the silent bell
And rang throughout the citadel
A pleasureseeker seeking out
Tribes familiar to her memory
The ancient sirens singing out
Loud above the silence

All I want is a room tonight
All I can do is assume tonight that tonight’s the night
All I have is a room tonight
A sad affair that has to end so soon tonight

The traitor bled as traitors bleed
Heading for the coliseum
Once a good man gives up good
There’s nothing left can save him
When the answer came in prayer
The hotel and the waiter paid
The lies lay papered across the cracks
Precarious as a minefield.

The foxes lay across the way
Tampering with the chickenwire
And all the while a vixen played
Catch ball with memory
A sad affair by all accounts
Left nothing but the hollowed out
Skin of something that
May not be worth keeping.
Track Name: Wonderful Products
Your hair should be short and straight
Your uniform must pass approval
Your fingerprints will be taken
Your identity is our security

And the reasons you exist
Are to buy our WONDERFUL PRODUCTS
And the reasons you exist
Are to pay our repressive taxes


And the reasons you persist
Are because you’ve not had retraining
And the reasons you persist
Are due to your Aggressive daydreams

GET AWAY FROM THE CAR
GET AWAY FROM THE CAR
GET AWAY FROM THE CAR
GET AWAY FROM THE CAR

Your thoughts are not your own
Your reasons aren’t good reasons
Your ideas no longer have privacy
Your identity is our security

And the reasons you exist
Are to buy our WONDERFUL PRODUCTS
And the reasons you exist
Are to pay our repressive taxes

And the reasons you persist
Are because you’ve not had retraining
And the reasons you persist
Are due to your Aggressive daydreams

GET AWAY FROM THE CAR
GET AWAY FROM THE CAR
GET AWAY FROM THE CAR
GET AWAY FROM THE CAR
Track Name: Big Pink Ship
Sitting on a beach
Lying in the sun
Waiting for all the badgers to come
Have an ice cream
Have a cool dip
Look over there it’s a Big Pink Ship
Track Name: Sympathy for a Drowned World
The floods have come
The rivers are deep
From Reykjavik to Adelaide
The waters’ at your feet
Track Name: Mariachi of the Mersey
My heart is like a hollowed boat
It needs a crew of skill
And though my love may barely float
I do not wish you ill

My heart is like a hollowed boat
It needs a careful steer
A captain who can hold his note
And sing in Neptune’s ear
Track Name: Sea Thing
Burn my human feet
With the sand beneath
Break my naked skin
With oxygen
Pierce my mortal eyes
With sunlight
If it’s one of your goals
Please take my soul

However long the days
Or however dark your art
However cruel your ways
You will not have my heart
