Track Name: I Believe In Dinosaurs
I believe, I believe, I believe in dinosaurs
Just like all good kids do
Archaeopteryx, Iguanodon, Tyrannosaurs…
And don’t forget the Pterodactyl

I believe, I believe, I believe in dinosaurs
Just like all good kids do
I believe in astronomy, sociology and more
But they’re not as fun as

What you find, what you find
When you go digging in the rock face
What you find, what you find

I believe, I believe, I believe in dinosaurs
I believe, I believe, I believe in dinosaurs

What do you find, when you go digging in the rock face for what they left behind
What do you find, when you go digging in the rock face to see what they left behind

I believe, I believe, I believe in dinosaurs
And all the things they teach us
Don’t grow too big, and don’t get hit by meteors
Or you’ll become extinct too

No love no love for the haters
They know nothing about the Cretaceous
It’s plain to see, it’s obvious to you and me,
They’re the ancestors of alligators

What you find, what you find
When you go digging in the rock face
What you find, what you find

I believe, I believe, I believe in dinosaurs
I believe, I believe, I believe in dinosaurs

What do you find, when you go digging in the rock face for what they left behind
What do you find, when you go digging in the rock face to see what they left behind

And I don’t believe in aliens, in witchcraft or in sorcery
I’ve got no time for the Loch Ness monster, the pope of scientology
And I don’t believe in the yeti or aromatherapy
But I believe in dinosaurs
Track Name: If I Can Be Wrong, Maybe I Can Be Young
Can't you see I wanted something more, than this dirty score
I was given anything I should hope for
So why do I feel taken fro a metaphor of failure
Loser on an overdose of ideas, wading through the comatose
A sea of apathetic machinery
And all I needed, all I need was time

But I remember being foolish, I said things as I saw them
And I never took nothing from no-one
Now my youth is disappearing, I take more than I'm given
But I'm fighting all the way on the run

If I can be wrong, maybe I can be young
Maybe I can be strong, maybe my mistakes can be undone
If I can be wrong, maybe I can be young
Maybe I can be strong, maybe my mistakes can be undone

Can't you see I've always had an ugly side, like we all do
It's something that we shouldn't hide, we must fight it, trap it in the open not just token resistance
Caught between immovable angels, irresistable mountains
I was taught just how to climb them, but there's always a down side
And all I needed, all I need was time

But I remember being foolish, I said things as I saw them
And I never took nothing from no-one
Now my youth is disappearing, I take more than I'm given
But I'm fighting all the way on the run

If I can be wrong, maybe I can be young
Maybe I can be strong, maybe my mistakes can be undone
If I can be wrong, maybe I can be young
Maybe I can be strong, maybe my mistakes can be undone
