Track Name: Cremate Me
Well I grew up with the understanding,
That I'd grow up to be like a man,
Have my drinks on Friday down the pub,
But I'd never seem to get drunk,
Drive a van with honest hands,
Wave to other drivers and they'd wave right back.
Cremate me
Cremate me
Cremate me
Cremate me
Poetry and local government,
Slurring songs and falling down,
I scratch your front door paint off with my keys,
As I attempt to let myself in,
Fast asleep the TV's on,
Woken up by Bob The Builder,
Can we fix it? No we can't.
(solo : Mackey, harmony : Jordan)
Cremate me
Cremate me
Cremate me
Cremate me
Track Name: At The Bottle Bank
You pulled up slightly after 3,
I saw your car pull in, I saw you smile at me,
You had about 16 boxes so you'd be here for a while,
So I ditched the cheap beer bottles and checked the labels on my wine,
So you'd think that I was rich.
She said "that was some party!"
"Hey, it's a pity we didn't meet yesterday, you could've invited me?"
Of all the things to say you dick, you've blown this for sure,
But no, she laughed.
And I checked her ass returning to get more,
Trying not to get caught out.
She looked at me and then looked back at the boxes,
Already a ton of empties there although the bins were far from full,
I thought we'd share a moment and 'tut' the savages in this town,
"Why would they bring their stuff here to just leave it on the ground?"
I don't know.
(solo: Jordan)
16 boxes later and the place is chocka now,
I'm boxed-in on all sides now like some alcoholic's jail,
You fiddled with your mobile, all eye contact gone,
Didn't hear it start but now your engine was on,
With a screech I noticed things I hadn't before,
Like the sick smell of your ashtray and to think I wanted more,
Oh no.
Track Name: Gypsy Bride
The trouble with inventing is that you have to keep ideas and innovate where others will not go.
I've spent my whole life at this, and all I ask for you not to spill you inkwell on my brand new plans.
I've got other options you know! She's out there waiting where it's snowing, her dressing is flowing, her horse is very cold.

Don't blame me, I've only just Qualified, and I had lots of stuff to do before you ever waked back through that door.
If you say that again, I'll make her my gypsy bride,
yes I'll be tapping asses right and left and you can say goodbye to your inheritance.

I'm on to a good one here as long as I can keep my focus, don't push it or get in any fights.
If you could just stay outside? don't want to have to move you bridle, feed your mammal or any other horse.
Oh yes this could be the one that makes me!
Then I'll just have to write my memoirs, pay my bookie and bolt the stable door.

Don't blame me, I've only just Qualified, and I had lots of stuff to do before you ever waked back through that door.
If you say that again, I'll make her my gypsy bride,
yes I'll be tapping asses right and left and you can say goodbye to your inheritance.
(Solo: Moorkens)
Track Name: You'll Never See A Dinosaur
From before I entered the hall,
I was struck down with your curse,
And just like the rest of the class,
I was looking for the truth,
Come graduation I sought a job on a dig,
A viking village making way for a retail park.
You can win the lottery,
Or you can see the Earth from space,
You can listen to a lion's roar,
But you'll never see a dinosaur.
I got my first real chance on a dig in Germany,
There had been a fossil find, 80,000,000 years BC,
It felt like the beginning of my mesozoic dream,
But every bone we found destroyed a part of me.
You can win the lottery,
Or you can see the Earth from space,
You can listen to a lion's roar,
But you'll never see a dinosaur.
You can win the lottery,
Or you can see the Earth from space,
You can study them for ever more,
But you'll never see a dinosaur.
(solos : Jordan, Mackey)
It doesn't matter how many times you've watched Jurassic Park,
Or if you know what happened to the Brontosaurus.
You can win the lottery,
Or you can see the Earth from space,
You can listen to a lion's roar,
But you'll never see a dinosaur.
You can win the lottery,
Or you can see the Earth from space,
You can study them for ever more,
But you'll never see a dinosaur.
Woah, woah, woah.
Track Name: My New Thing
I've had enough and I'm opting out,
And I'm not going to live in a wood,
So I've brought a guest for dinner,
"So set an extra place at the table darling will you?"

This is gonna be my new thing baby,
So don't go bothering the law,
This is gonna be my new thing baby.

"So who's that and what's he doing here?
I've only peeled enough for two,
You've dragged your muddy feet all over the house",
"Oh jesus that's the least of your problems now".

This is gonna be my new thing baby,
He won't be going home at all,
This is gonna be my new thing baby.

So don't go bothering the law.

This is gonna be my new thing baby,
Track Name: Stepmaster
You've been working on the stepmaster.
You've finally found an exercise you like.
What it's given you, if nothing else,
is you've finally got a place to park your bike.
Track Name: Friend
I know I complain about our friendship all the time,
And I know some of that is my fault and some of it is mine,
You're a broken record I'm afraid will wreck my deck,
But our song's on that album so I'll show it some respect.

You will always be my friend.

We've been to places that i never thought we'd go,
We got so drunk that I can hardly remember the weezer show,
We tried to share our biscuits with the London indie kids,
Disrespecting royals and photographing what we did.

You will always be my friend.

Solo : Jordan

So now I'm dealing with this the only way I know,
I've seen art help you before although nothing quite this bad,
So I give you a simple message wrapped up in a simple line,
I will always be your friend and you will always be mine.

You will always be my friend.
Track Name: Rotund Iberian
So you make fun of my size
I was born in foreign climes
Sidle right up to your side
do you got a fiver fella?

The way that I walk
The way that I talk
The cards where I cheat
The food that I eat
It's all going back

Solo : Darby

Craving paella and fights
I'll re-write the rules of Shithead guys
Corco was right the whole time
I'll never see that fiver, will I?

The way that I talk
The way that I walk
The cards where I cheat
The food that I eat
It's all going back
Track Name: September's New Mound
It’s always September before you cop on.
The season is done before that.
Another term quaking, the dead of the night.
Running to Tuck or the rats.

Each time a door opens you pray for a face.
But its generally him on his rounds.
If Charlie is snoring he might get a dig.
Though, 'Echoes' and 'Ordinary World'?

You ask me why songs never mention you now,
Even though I have fuel all around.
I'd throw one together, but I want it to count
For more than Septembers new Mound.
Track Name: You Looked Like An Alien
The man walked right in,
With his mouth agape,
Barely able to lift his feet off the floor,

The polyester gown,
And the terrible skin,
With allergies galore.

And you looked like an alien

But he wasn't the exception,
And when i heard him asking questions
I thought what have we done,

Looking for a solution,
A way out of the pollution,
Like he had no choice.

And you looked like an alien
Track Name: Lovely Pork
I've got a god damn wife who won't eat meat, nothing with a face, not even with a frown.
I've got a god damn mother who can't do wheat, though in her defence she's got the solutions down.
I've got god damn kid who's fussy as fuck, most everything he gets ends up on a wall.
I've got a sweet toothed dad who could lose a foot, which in fairness would increase the chance of a fall.

These dietary travails, I wished they'd go away.
Just eat the lovely pork.

(Solo : Jordan)

I've got a god damn drummer who can't eat shit because his stomach just cannot cope with it.
I've got god damn a bassist who's just like me.
I wish he was part of my family.

These dietary travails, I wished they'd go away.
Just eat the lovely pork.
Track Name: Maybe Means Maybe
Maybe means maybe,
Maybe means maybe,
No means no,
Maybe means maybe,

Sorry means sorry,
Maybe means maybe,
You’re in trouble,

Don't want to leave you on your own,
Not squeezing blood out of that stone,
You either do or you don’t, yeah.

Maybe means maybe,
Maybe means maybe,
No means no.
