Track Name: The Present Perfect
The Present Perfect

I sometimes see you
Hanging round
I'm thinking: Helen Love-
Girl About Town

You're like a pop song
A sugar rush
A blunt instrument
My brain is mush

It strikes like lightening to hear you sing
Oh my darling you're the sweetest thing
The present perfect is all I wanna know
All I wanna know

I'm counting days now
That we're apart
Your band plays covers
Like A Fearless Heart

Say you love me
Say you do
Your fearless love imparts
A fearless heart

It strikes like lightening to hear you sing
Oh my darling you're the sweetest thing
The present perfect is all I wanna know
All I wanna know
Track Name: Magazine
Magazine

I'll change my handle and get a different name
I want a scandal, I wish I had no shame
I saw you in the street, chaffing with the wheat
Those guys are getting beat next time

Go back to your magazine, find me a dream

I'm riding the wave of this stupid song
It came out all at once, half wrong
-But half right-
Tina Turner off, Van Morrison
Who'll be there for you after I am gone?

Go back to your magazine, find me a dream
Track Name: Best Man Speech
Best Man Speech

My brother finally moved out of home
Now his old bedroom is like Wonka's own
His girlfriend doesn't know this sweet tooth
And this song is gonna tell her the truth

O – O – Olivia
Should he affect a gait
O – O – Olivia
Or an accent set him straight

This town has changed that we used to roam in
And you'll never know the bittersweet gloam in
Suburban pinks and blues in the sky
And I'll never know the sadness in a country goodbye

O – O – Olivia
Keep him on his toes
O – O – Olivia
Steady as she goes

When I return to the town where we started
I can't help but feel I'm the grateful departed
Now I know we share this feeling too
Me and my brother who finally moved

O – O – Olivia
It can't remain unsaid
O – O – Olivia
I'm glad that you'll be wed
Track Name: Disc Jockey Blues
Disc Jockey Blues

This is the last one that I will spin
Cupid's sugar needles are puncturing my skin

This is the last one that I will spin
Will you join me for a dance?
Are you gonna take the horse to France?

All of the girls are all lined up
Like soldiers they wait for me to take aim
It's a frottage industry
My bullet's tipped with glee
If the world would let me be, I could hide and never see:

The rivers of piss
(The hits never miss)
Rivers of piss
(The hits never miss)

I like the way you work it: no dignity!
Feremones castrate
My eardrums resonate

After the last one I will sleep
I'm tired and you're dreaming
Your voicemail just goes “beep”.
Track Name: The Kids In The Band
The Kids In The Band

Girl used to climb on the altar at mass
Dance for the priest, lift her dress, shake her ass

Now the kid's in the band


Oh where do we go?
And how are we supposed to know?

Take me street light UFO
Life moves fast, people move slow


Now the kid's in the band

Track Name: It Must Be Thursday, Here Comes Ruby
It Must Be Thursday, Here Comes Ruby

In the beginning there was me
A blinking, naked abductee
I stood behind my parents' couch
When my legs tired of the crouch

I spied on parties fueled by bath tub gin
Patrick Nagel wet dreams for the win

It must be Thursday, here comes Ruby
It must be Thursday, here she comes now

I'm gonna live amongst the ants
Wear a red cape and bzou dance
If those ants don't watch their step
They'll rue the day that they transgressed

Please don't wake me, slip under my hood
I leaned myself against the Rubywood

It must be Thursday, here comes Ruby
It must be Thursday, here she comes now

Dreaming is a holiday
Saragossa ponderosa
Track Name: No Rock'n'Roll Dreams (In Empty Beds)
No Rock And Roll Dreams(In Empty Beds)

Oh no, I just can't go
I've got a date with my pillow
I'm catching zeds
I'm baking breads
No rock and roll dreams in empty beds

Sick of waiting in line and going single file
I'm sick of racing social rats, they give you the Weil's
I don't give a shit about your audio files
I'll be dreaming, sweetness, and that's per hour miles

Oh no, I just can't go
I've got a date with my pillow
I'm catching zeds
I'm baking breads
No rock and roll dreams in empty beds

You say staying in is going out of style
I've been around the block and it was a square mile
You won't see me swinging like a lily of the Nile
There's a book of turning leaves down the end of the aisle

Oh no, I just can't go
I've got a date with my pillow
I'm catching zeds
I'm baking breads
No rock and roll dreams in empty beds

You might see me out every once in a while
Ripping up the dancefloors of the Emerald Isle
And whenever I'm not it isn't my black bile
I'm dreaming on my pillow at the top of the pile

Oh no, I just can't go
I've got a date with my pillow
I'm catching zeds
I'm baking breads
No rock and roll dreams in empty beds
No rock and roll dreams in empty bed
They're only dreams, Heisenberg said
The only dreams are in your head
Track Name: Sophomore Evil
Sophomore Evil

Oh, twin moons attending their dull vigil
Hospital goons are sanitised with gargle
Disinfecting spoons
Doting on tycoons

OOHH!

When you're in, you're in for life (Sophomore Evil)
Don't look back like old Lott's wife (No don't you look back on)
It makes me sad, it makes me sick (Sophomore Evil)
My salt lick was just Old Nick

Graduate from Sophomore Evil
Separate the culprit from the pulpit
The dancer from the dance
J Fun from his pants

( floating here above the world, shell that held no pearl )

OOHH!

When you're in, you're in for life (Sophomore Evil)
Don't look back like old Lott's wife
It makes me sad, it makes me sick (Sophomore Evil)
My salt lick was just Old Nick

Two elephants fall off a cliff
Tundish!
Track Name: The First Book Of Lessons
The First Book Of Lessons

I am an upturned umberella, gathering rain
I am the clock (tick, tock)
I am the crock of shit at the end of the rainbow

Trick, trick, it's a trick of light
Dancing in my burning eyes
Maybe I'll take a one way flight,
Settle down and eulogise

I am an open vessel, show me the way
I am the clock (tick, tock)
I was at knock the day the sky went flamenco

Trick, trick, it's a trick of light
Dancing in my burning eyes
Maybe I'll take a one way flight,
Settle down and eulogise
Track Name: Almost Two
Almost Two

Oh my God it's almost two and we have slept the morning through
I haven't had a dream in years that stayed with me when sleeping cleared

How the hell did this happen to me?
Singing roll on a quarter to three
You came along and turned me upside down
And broke the comfort in a frown

I was never an ascetic, never been so sympathetic
Nor was I ever concerned with how much love I had earned

How the hell did this happen to me?
Singing roll on a quarter to three
You came along and turned me upside down
And broke the comfort in a frown

I think we need a bigger boat to keep the both our heads afloat
I'm playing Noah in the garden, two by two, begging no pardons

How the hell did this happen to me?
Singing roll on a quarter to three
You came along and turned me upside down
And broke the comfort in a frown

Your love is all I need
Track Name: Do The Worm
Do The Worm

Come with me to a notary, put this in a letter;
The respect of my coterie
My potential, was presidential

If I could murder a shameless kiss I'd use my fists
Ignorance is a curse, a little knowledge is worse

And you're wriggling, wriggling like a worm on a hook you're wriggling

Who will babysit the city while we're out getting drunk?
Who will keep our gardens pretty and dance the mazurka?

She said oh baby I love you but sometimes life is so so hard

And you're wriggling, wriggling, like a worm on a hook you're wriggling

Heads of cabbage in prams yeah
World Cup babies wielding digital cameras
Who will weep for me and keep me in the style that I know?
Oh where will I go?

Wriggling, wriggling, like a worm on a hook you're wriggling
Track Name: Superman Song
Sung by Dave Green


Superman Song

Don't put a clock on me
Don't want no third degree
Don't want no ABC
Superman hangs with the plebs
I am a killer bee
I am the cedar tree
I've got the repartee
Superman Hangs with the plebs
I've got the master key
Don't pay no docking fee
I aint a worker bee
Superman hangs with the plebs
Track Name: Learning Chinese
Learning Chinese

I'll take my punk rock records off the shelf
(Down, down, down, off the shelf)
I'm so decadent when I do it myself
(Decca decca dent D. I . Y. )
There's a hole in my pocket
I've got the disease
I tell you now baby I'm learning chinese

I'd go down to the crossroads and sell my soul
(Dancing at the crossroads)
If I thought it might pay a little more than the dole
(Thought it wouldn't be a pain in the hole)
There's something going on
I've got the disease
I tell you now baby I'm learning chinese

So long, you were wrong

I'll save my time, save my health
(Save my time, save my time)
Spend it on nothing, keep it stealth
(Keep it stealth, save my health)
There's a hole in my pocket
I've got the disease
I tell you now, baby, I'm learning chinese
Track Name: Waiting On The Sun To Rise
Waiting On The Sun To Rise

Waiting isn't easy
Vader black and queasy
All I know
Clinging with a fist
Knuckles white, in a demon tryst
I can wait

I don't want to tell you goodbye
I'm waiting on the sun to rise

Friendship is molasses
Sticky like the past is
A tiny isle
We're bound around our wrists
To hoist the sun
I played the jingoist
Turned the screws

I don't want to tell you goodbye
I'm waiting on the sun to rise
