Track Name: Animals
By the lion enclosure, I wanna expose ya
I wanna get closer, before your life will be over
Just remember that it’s

It’s in na-na-nee-na-na
It’s in na-na-nee-na-na…

It’s inevitable, one day they’ll have us up against the wall
It’s inevitable, one day the animals reject their names

They’ve had enough today
They wanna live with their own names
They’re on the streets today

By the elephant enclosure, they’re ferocious and older
They’re angry and they remember, all the days of your slaughter
Just remember that it’s!

It’s in na-na-nee-na-na
It’s in na-na-nee-na-na…

It’s inevitable, one day they’ll have us up against the wall
It’s inevitable, one day the animals reject their names

They’ve had enough today
They wanna live with their own names
They’re on the streets today
Track Name: Lighthouses
I know what you’re here for
The wisdom of the traveller in blazing sunsets
But you won’t find it here no
You won’t find it now if you don’t know what it is yet

And I’ll tell you how, I’ll tell you how to live
Without fear of the past or the future
And I’ll tell you now, I’ll tell you now
To live without scars is to paint with water

And I will be your friend, and I will take my time
Tell you all the things that you shouldn’t have to hide
And I will be your friend, and I will take my time

I can see by the lighthouse
All of the regrets and the scars that are mine
I can see by the lighthouse
Out across the sea, for what feels like the last time
I can see by the lighthouse
To live without scars is to paint with water
I can see by the lighthouse
Hold onto your regrets, they’re what make us who we are

The sex that I paid for
Sometimes you have to cross the line to know where it is now
And the scars that I made myself
Sometimes you have to draw a map if nobody else will

And I’ll tell you how, I’ll tell you how to live
Take your youth and please never waste it
‘Cos all I have to offer you now are my scars, and the view across the Atlantic

And I will be your friend, and I will take my time
Tell you all the things that you shouldn’t have to hide
And I will be your friend, and I will take my time

I can see by the lighthouse
All of the regrets and the scars that are mine
I can see by the lighthouse
Out across the sea, for what feels like the last time
I can see by the lighthouse
To live without scars is to paint with water
I can see by the lighthouse
Hold onto your regrets, and the crazy times we’ve had
Track Name: The Tsunami, The Tank And The Barcode
I went on a voyage, in search of some credibility
But all I found was the greasy underbelly of the global economy
They send out their hired guns, lay a trail for the middle class
But I see through this, to all the future tourists in Iraq

I don’t believe a thing you say
I don’t believe it

The tsunami, the tank and the barcode
Forget everything you’ve been told
We were always on our own
The tsunami, the tank and the barcode
They left you in the cold
We were always on our own

This is for all the corporate campfires, where we sit around and sing Jack Johnson
And the arrogant wankers, who come home with genuine Thai Coca-cola clothes on

All your tourist dollars go back home
All your tourist dollars go back home
All your tourist dollars go back home
All your tourist dollars go home

[ Chorus ]

I’m a tourist with blood on my shoulders
I’m a tourist with blood on my shoulders

Your tsunami dollars go back home
They’re mismanaged by governments that you know
Your tsunami dollars go back home
So all you tourists, why don’t you go home?

[ Chorus ]

I’m a tourist with blood on my shoulders, can you take it can you fake it and I told you so
I’m a tourist with blood on my shoulders, can you take it can you fake it and I told you so
I’m a tourist with blood on my shoulders, can you take it can you fake it and I told you so
I’m a tourist with blood on my shoulders

[ Chorus ]
Track Name: Shark In A Goldfish Bowl
I don’t care what you say, I don’t care what you say
I don’t care if you just swim swim away
I don’t care what you say, I don’t care what you say

I’m a shark in a goldfish bowl
I get the same views
And I don’t know what to do
I’m a shark in a goldfish bowl
I get the same views
But I’m coming on back for this one now
I’m a shark in a goldfish bowl
I get the same views
And I don’t know what to do
I’m a shark in a goldfish bowl
And I hate all those views, all those backward views

I don’t care what you say, I don’t care what you say
I don’t care if you just swim swim away
I don’t care what you say, I don’t care what you say

I’m a shark in a goldfish bowl
I get the same views
And I don’t know what to do
I’m a shark in a goldfish bowl
I get the same views
But I’m coming on back for this one now
I’m a shark in a goldfish bowl
I get the same views
And I don’t know what to do
I’m a shark in a goldfish bowl
And I hate all those views, all those backward views

And I will burn this goldfish bowl down
I will burn this goldfish bowl down
I will burn this goldfish bowl down goldfish bowl down
Track Name: JLo Is A Rich Materialist Bitch And Represents The Block In No Way Whatsoever
Yo yo yo
Yo yo yo yo yo
Aw yiiih
One time, one time
She’s all that, she’s all that
Yo yo yo yo yo
Two time, two time
Yo yo yo yo yo yo
J-LO, rhymes with GHETTO
Eight-time, eight-time
Seventeen time, seventeen time?
Yo yo yo
Aw yiiih
Come on, break it down

I wish I could tell you, just how I feel
But the only thing I can think to say is this

I wish you would clean the streets just for a little bit,
I wish you would clean the toilets for a little bit,
I wish you would clean the offices for a little bit,
And then you’d know what the block was like

I wish that you would shut up for a change and stop telling everyone how rich you are, you’re just a poor girl, nobody loved you
She’s just a poor girl, from a poor family
I don’t believe a word, I don’t believe a word
I don’t believe a word

J-Lo is a
J-Lo is a
J-Lo is a rich materialist bitch
She represents the block in no way at all
Track Name: The Future's What You Want It To Be
In the future, nobody is older
In the future, everybody always looks young
In the future, everybody’s hot forever
In the future, everybody’s song gets sung

Tell me why, nothing ever turns out like we write, in space age or sci-fi
Tell me why, we all think it’s gonna be fine

We could like in a world where people take video with their eyes
But we might find that we would never have the time
To be free, to be free
The future’s what you want it to be
The future’s what you want it to be

In the future, our energy comes from water
In the future, everybody lives on the moon
In the future, there’s shiny robots that cure cancer
But I don’t think, the future’s any time too soon

Tell me why, nothing ever turns out like we write, it’s the future but not quite
There’s no dolphins who travel through time

We could like in a world where people take video with their eyes
But we might find that we would never have the time
To be free, to be free
The future’s what you want it to be
The future’s what you want it to be

Take your science and technology, is that what you want it to be
Superstition and plastic surgery, is that what you want it to be
Success at any cost, or do you want to live a life with balance
Time accepts no apologies

The future’s what you want it to be
The future’s what you want it to be
Track Name: One Last Parting Shot
This is a story about personal failure
I don’t mean to deceive you
But I’ve been working all this time, now it’s hard to believe ya
So it’s time for me to leave you
Years go by, years go by
Nothing happens, surrounded by zombies that don’t ask why
Years go by, years go by
So what’s the point of being a thorn in their side

What if it all just took too long?
And everything you needed was gone
And everything you said was always powerless and meaningless and all the time, you lost your life

So, what did you find? Wasting all the days wishing you could rewind
I think you’re beautiful and kind, but I never belonged on all those drunken nights
Well, you know that I’ll be fine, I’ll leave you watching all the waves I’ll leave behind
You know that time, has to be cruel to be kind
If you believe that I think you’ll be surprised

So how long, must someone hold on, you gave me nothing so bring it on!
I’ve watched you climbing, claiming your success – drowning in your excess
Days go by, days go by
I’ve got a chance, to stop the clock, to stop the rot and get something done
Days go by, days go by
I tried to show you all the difference between happiness and blind fun

But what if it all just took too long?
And everything you needed was gone
And everything you said was always powerless and meaningless
And everything you said was always wrong
And you cursed the very place that you’re from
But I’ve got a chance this time, and I’m breaking out I’ll take it now and I might just get to live my life

So, what did you find? Wasting all the days wishing you could rewind
I think you’re beautiful and kind, but I never belonged on all those drunken nights
Well, you know that I’ll be fine, I’ll leave you watching all the waves I’ll leave behind
You know that time, has to be cruel to be kind
If you believe that I think you’ll be surprised
