01. Rise Up

Check the shape of your eyes
You're taking too much
And loosen your smile
You're pushing too hard
You're lost for words
For what it's worth
The years ache on
You get the face you deserve

Time will heal these scars
I don't need your help
The melody's choked
Stuck in a swollen throat
Self-medicated and over-served
The tell-tale signs
You make your fate when you

Rise up, rise up
And make yourself well
Rise up, rise up
And make yourself well

Scream yourself awake
Snap out of the trance
Feeling clumsy watching others dance
And draining away
A tangle of nerves
Kick out of your way
And learn to

Rise up, rise up
And make yourself well

Rise up, rise up
And make yourself well

Rise up, rise up
And make yourself well

Rise up, rise up
And make yourself well

Check the shape of your eyes
Check the shape of your eyes
Check the shape of your eyes
Check the shape of your eyes

Rise up, rise up
And make yourself well

Rise up, rise up
And make yourself well

Rise up, rise up
And make yourself well

Rise up, rise up
And make yourself well

Rise up, rise up
Rise up, rise up
Rise up, rise up
Rise up, rise up


02. Die Like A Motherfucker

Ex-consumer
Drowned my computer
Caught the fucker talking back to me
Cut to the chase
Bury the waste
Disposable is the key

When you live like a fucker
You die like a motherfucker
Live like a fucker
You die like a motherfucker
Live like a fucker
You die like a motherfucker
Die motherfucker
Die motherfucker die

Bored to distraction
With your comedy action
I wish you'd get up and leave
Out of my face
And into the shit
Long may you rot in peace

When you live like a fucker
You die like a motherfucker
Live like a fucker
You die like a motherfucker
Live like a fucker
You die like a motherfucker
Die motherfucker
Die motherfucker die

Atomised
Itemised
And super-sized to death
Short attention spawn
The curtains drawn
A generation takes it's last breath

When you live like a fucker
You die like a motherfucker
Live like a fucker
You die like a motherfucker
Live like a fucker
You die like a motherfucker
Die motherfucker
Die motherfucker die

Live like a fucker
You die like a motherfucker
Live like a fucker
You die like a motherfucker
Live like a fucker
You die like a motherfucker
Die motherfucker
Die motherfucker die

Die motherfucker die


03. Perish The Thought

I could sleep for days
Given half the chance
But I'm not in dreamland now
Reality avalanche
In a way
I'm in waste-management
I cover shit up, cover shit up
Pretend it never happened

It could be worse
I could be you
It could be worse
I could be you
But I perish the thought

No idea is natural
We're born, we age, we die trying
Slowly rotting beneath the surface
Waiting to burst with rage

It could be worse
I could be you
It could be worse
I could be you
It could be worse
I could be you
It could be worse
I could be you
But I perish the thought

And I perish
I perish
The thought

And I perish
I perish
The thought

It could be worse
I could be you
It could be worse
I could be you
It could be worse
I could be you
It could be worse
I could be you

I could be you
I could be you
I could be you
I could be you


04. Here Be Monsters

For fuck sake help me
Because I need a friend to get me through this
With no regrets
And God I know there's no pity from the city
And I know that pity's never been pretty

So I aim low
And I hit my sights
I go ballistic even though it's not right
I'll take you with me
To make me feel alright about myself

Here be monsters
Here be monsters
Here be monsters
Here be monsters

You came along
Because I need someone to get me through this
Not just anyone
Someone who knows
The confusion ahead
When God is now here and God is nowhere

Here be monsters
Here be monsters
Here be monsters
Here be monsters

So here we are
All things must come to an end
Can you enlighten me? Tell me what to expect?
Because I'm lost, alone and afraid of the future

Here be monsters
Here be monsters
Here be monsters
Here be monsters

Here be monsters
Here be monsters
Here be monsters
Here be monsters


05. So Called Life

We all want cheap happiness now
Easily placated like sheep and cows

We do what we're told
And we buy what we're sold

In this so called life
There should be so much more
In this so called life
Oh, we're better than this
This so called life

Is it only the dumb who are safe in this world?
The ones quite content to roam with the herd

And do what they're told
And buy what they're sold

In this so called life
There should be so much more
In this so called life
Oh, we're better than this
This so called life

'Cos we do what we're told
And buy what we're sold

In this so called life
There should be so much more
In this so called life
Oh, we're better than this
This so called life

There should be so much more
In this so called life
Oh, we're better than
Oh, we're better than
Oh, we're better than this


06. Panic!

Another government off the hook
Another programme off the books
Pass the buck
And leave us fucked
Distant and helpless
Story of our lives
White collar crime

Another government off the hook
Lamb-like slaughter
Adrenaline makes it taste better
Pass the buck
And leave us fucked
Distant and helpless
Story of our lives

Panic! Panic! Panic! Panic!
White collar crime

This is progress
Don't look down
Pass the buck
And leave us fucked
Distant and helpless
Story of our lives

Panic! Panic! Panic! Panic!
White collar crime


07. Polar Bear

I'm a polar bear
A polar bear in a zoo
Pace back and forth
Pace back and forth

I'm a polar bear
Polar bear in a zoo
Pace back and forth
Pace back and forth

Stuck in this cage
Stuck here with you
Pace back and forth
Pace back and forth

Stuck in this cage
Stuck here with you
Creep up on me
I'll creep up on you

And here we are
Stuck here with you
Creep up on me
Creep up on me

And here we are
I'm stuck here with you
You fence me in
I'll turn on you.


08. Rock You Monkeys

I want the high life
I want bananas
I want a brother and sister in Havana
I wanna get laid by the C.I.A.
I'm on my way to the U.S.A.

I want a green card
I want freedom
Take me to your leader 'cos I wanna meet him
My people are cold
My country is old
But my drugs are cool
And the prices are good so

Rock you monkeys
Rock you monkeys
Rock you monkeys
Now get your things and go
Away

I want cocaine by the barrel
I trade it for oil and top camel
Life's a gas
Life's a bitch
Fucked in the ass by a pinko snitch

So rock you monkeys
Rock you monkeys
Rock you monkeys
Now get your things and go

Rock you monkeys
Rock you monkeys
Rock you monkeys
Now get your things and go

Now I'm the president
And I like it
A fully fledged bible black-belt tyrant
The F.B.I. the C.I.A.
Oh, fuck me, fuck me U.S.A.

Rock you monkeys
Rock you monkeys
Rock you monkeys
Now get your things and go

Rock you monkeys
Rock you monkeys
Rock you monkeys
Now get your things and go

Now get your things and go
Now get your things and go
Now get your things and go


09. Dead

We, we used to be friends
We used to give a shit about each other
That was then
This is today

You, you took my love
You took all of my trust
You took my drugs
It wasn't enough

Back in the day we thought we suffered
We didn't know each other well enough
To guess how this would end
Both confused and both unknowing where we're both going
Now you're back
I thought you were dead
Dead, dead, dead

Friends, who fuckin' needs 'em?
They only let you down
They take your time
They bleed you dry

Back in the day we thought we suffered
We didn't know each other well enough
To guess how this would end
Both confused and both unknowing where we're both going
Now you're back
I thought you were dead
Dead, dead, dead

You, you sold me out
You sold me out
You sold me out

Back in the day we thought we suffered
We didn't know each other well enough
To guess how this would end
Both confused and both unknowing where we're both going
Now you're back
I thought you were dead
Dead, dead, dead

Dead, dead, dead, dead


10. Long Distance

I like cold mornings
They keep me sharp
Forget the rain
Forget the car
And leave behind all communication

All the pieces
In front of me
I have this place
All to myself
I'm not asking much
Just a little space for my head

I start today, I drive the other way
I start today, I drive the other way
I start today, I drive the other way
I start today, I drive the other way

A simple lake
Dirt tracks for days
I'm breathing clean
My eyes feel bathed
I've hit the wall too many times now

I start today, I drive the other way
I start today, I drive the other way
I start today, I drive the other way
I start today, I drive the other way

I start today
I start today
I start today
I start today

I start today, I drive the other way
(and if it makes you happy, it doesn't make me sorry)
I start today, I drive the other way
(and if it makes you happy, it doesn't make me sorry)
I start today, I drive the other way
(and if it makes you happy, it doesn't make me sorry)
I start today, I drive the other way
(and if it makes you happy)


11. This Ship Is Sinking

This ship is sinking
And I'm gonna go with it
Straight to the bottom
I'll push it back up

This ship is sinking
And it's taking me with it
Straight to the bottom
Where we belong

This ship is sinking
This ship is sinking
This ship is sinking
Sinking

My heart is broken
And you did it
It took you five minutes
And I died in an instant

And now
I'm going straight to hell
With a shipwrecked mind
And keelhauled as well
Yeah!

This ship is sinking
This ship is sinking
This ship is sinking
Sinking

The ocean's wide
And you dropped me in it
Now I need a bottle of wine to get me through this
And now
I'm going straight to hell
I'll probably see you there

This ship is sinking
This ship is sinking
This ship is sinking
Sinking


12. Save The Sermon

So helpless
So hopeless
Don't care less
Oh, what's it to you?

Your lost cause
Your project
My faith has left
Just let it slide

It's a ride, save the sermon
It's a ride, save the sermon

Our paths they
Don't cross much
You in your corner
I in mine

I like this
Space and distance
Don't waste your time
'cos I cherish mine
I cherish mine

It's a ride, save the sermon
It's a ride, save the sermon
It's a ride, save the sermon

It's a ride

It's a ride, save the sermon
It's a ride, save the sermon
It's a ride, save the sermon
It's a ride, it's a ride
It's a ride, it's a ride
It's a ride


13. Last One To Heaven's A Loser

Last one to Heaven's a loser
Last one to Heaven's a loser
Last one to Heaven's a loser
Last one to Heaven's a loser

I'm damned for what I said
And the way I said it
I didn't think it through
And I don't think I meant it
Is it me that bothers you?
And will we live to regret this?
Too much air is lost already

Last one to Heaven's a loser
Last one to Heaven's a loser
Last one to Heaven's a loser
Last one to Heaven's a loser

Now you've fallen on hard times
You're ripped and torn like many
At the scene of all your crimes
You're guilty and they're plenty
Now you never leave the house
Unless you're really desperate
One last ticket to God knows where

Last one to Heaven's a loser
Last one to Heaven's a loser
Last one to Heaven's a loser
Last one to Heaven's a loser

Last one to Heaven's a loser
Last one to Heaven's a loser
Last one to Heaven's a loser
Last one to Heaven's a loser
