Track Name: P.O.P. Music
WE DON’T MAKE ROCK MUSIC THIS IS P-O-P
Track Name: Good Start
I JUST HOPE WE NEVER MEET, TONIGHT THE LAWS OF TIME AND SPACE ARE ON MY SIDE FOR ONCE, WE’D HAVE OH, OH SO MUCH IN COMMON, BUT WE’D HAVE NOTHING TO TALK ABOUT. YOU MUST HAVE GOTTEN ME OFF TO A GOOD START. TELL ME A STORY FROM THE GOOD OLD DAYS, FUCK, I’D LOVE TO DO IT ALL AGAIN, UNTIL THE END OF TIME, HERE’S MY ONE PIECE OF ADVICE TO YOU: BUCKLE UP BECAUSE EVERYTHING STAYS THE SAME.
Track Name: Let's Go
I KNOW THAT WE JUST MET, I DON’T WANT TO REGRET NOT GAMBLING MY HEART ON THIS UNLIKELY BET. SHE GOT PRETTY BIG HAIR, SHE GOT PRETTY BROWN EYES, SHE LIKES A BIT OF EVERYTHING MUSIC-WISE. I WANNA GO, ANYWHERE YOU, GO, SOMEWHERE I DON’T KNOW, GO, GET A BURRITO, LET’S GO. SHE WANTS TO BE A TEACHER, SHE LIKES TO SMOKE THE SHEESHA, I ASKED HER IF SHE’D TEACH ME HOW TO SMOKE. I DON’T KNOW HOW I DO IT, WHEN I THINK OF ALL THE TIMES I BLEW IT, BUT NOT THIS TIME: SHE LAUGHED AND SAID “OK, LET’S GO, WHEREVER YOU WANNA GO”. LET’S GO ANYWHERE IF IT’S NEAR OR FAR, GO TOGETHER RIDING IN MY CAR, I GOT A FULL TANK AND A SHITTY LITTLE RADIO.
Track Name: Blake's 7
WAKE UP, CLEAR THE SLEEP FROM MY EYES, SECONDS PASS THEN I REALISE, IT’S SUNDAY MORNING: THE WORST TIME OF THE WEEK. EVERY SEVENTH BREAKFAST TIME, SOMETHING MAKES ME LOSE MY APPETITE, HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO SEE STUPID “CAMERA SHAKE” EXPLOSIONS? ARMIES OF TIN FOIL ROBOTS? IT’S SCI FI REPEATS ON THE BBC AND I CAN’T FIND THE REMOTE, DR WHO AND BLAKE’S 7 ARE ON TV AND I CAN’T FIND THE REMOTE, NOW THE SHITTY SPECIAL EFFECTS HAVE GONE AND DR WHO IS THE BEST THING THAT’S ON, I’M LIVING IN CONSTANT DISBELIEF AT HOW MUCH WE’D HAVE TO TALK ABOUT, BUT I DON’T KNOW IF WE’LL EVER FIND OUT, I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD SAY THAT SOME THINGS ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN TIME TRAVEL, DINOSAURS AND ROBOTS.
Track Name: I Heart U(SA)
WHEN I WENT TO THE USA, I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED I HAVE TO SAY, THERE WERENT AS MANY FAT PEOPLE AS I THOUGHT THAT THERE WOULD BE. WHEN WE MADE IT TO YOSEMITE, I WAS VERY LET DOWN, NATURALLY,WE THOUGHT WE SAW A BEAR BUT IT TURNED OUT TO BE A MAN. NO ONE SAID ‘I DIG YOUR ACCENT’, NO ONE FOUND ME FUNNY OR INTERESTING, THAT WAS ALRIGHT (THAT WAS OK), COS I WAS HANGING ROUND WITH YOU IN THE USA. WE DIDNT EVEN GAMBLE DOWN IN VEGAS, SAW HOLLYWOOD BUT NO ONE FAMOUS, MONTEREY WAS MISERABLE, THERE WASN’T MUCH TO DO, SO WE HIT THE ROAD. TOOK THE RENTAL DOWN PACIFIC COAST HIGHWAY,YOU DROVE IT YOUR WAY, I DROVE IT MY WAY, DROVE EACH OTHER INSANE, BUT IM SURE AS HELL WE’D DO IT ALL AGAIN. WHEN WE WENT TO SEE THE DODGERS, AND I PAID 20 DOLLARS FOR A BEER AND A TASTELESS HOT DOG, THAT WAS ALRIGHT (THAT WAS OK), COS I WAS SITTING NEXT TO YOU IN THE USA,REMEMBER WHEN IT RAINED AT THE ZOO IN SAN DIEGO? REMEMBER WHEN THE TRAM BROKE DOWN IN SAN FRANCISCO?THAT WAS ALRIGHT (THAT WAS OK),COS I WAS WALKING HOME WITH YOU IN THE US, ARGUING WITH YOU IN THE US, HANGING OUT WITH YOU IN THE USA
Track Name: Dammit, I Haven't Changed Again
BLACK OR WHITE, WRONG OR RIGHT, GOOD OR SHITE, I HAD IT ALL NAILED DOWN. DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME, STAY OUT OF MY MIND, YOU’LL NEVER GET INSIDE, I HAD IT ALL FIGURED OUT. TURNS OUT THAT I DON’T KNOW ANYTHING, I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO, I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO. BLACK OR WHITE, WRONG OR RIGHT, GOOD OR SHITE, I HAD IT ALL NAILED DOWN, STAY HERE OR START AGAIN, I’M NEVER FUCKING STARTING AGAIN.
Track Name: Journey Into Mystery
I JUST WANTED TO GET AWAY, LAY MY HEAD DOWN FOR A FEW DAYS, THE STONE MEN FROM SATURN WERE ON THEIR WAY. TRIED TO MAKE A QUICK ESCAPE, THEY WON’T MAKE DON BLAKE THEIR SLAVE, WHO GOES ON HOLIDAY TO NORWAY? SHOW ME THE FASTEST WAY, OUT OF THIS PLACE. FOUND SHELTER ON THE MOUNTAINSIDE, A GOOD PLACE FOR ME TO TRY TO HIDE, WHO LEFT THIS ANCIENT CANE INSIDE? IT WAS DARK AND I WAS ALL ALONE, THIS DANK CAVE HAS BECOME MY HOME, WHAT ELSE TO DO BUT POUND THE STONE?
Track Name: Underpants Collection
SICK OF GETTING INTO FIGHTS, TIRED OF DOING NOTHING RIGHT, I’M NOT GONNA SLEEP TONIGHT, BUT INSTEAD I THINK I MIGHT, RE-READ ALL MY MESSAGES AND SEND A SICKLY SWEET REPLY TO YOU. YOU SAY YOU’VE GOT A BROKEN HEART, SLIGHT DESPERATION ON MY PART, IT DOESN’T MEAN THAT YOU’RE NOT HOT, OR I DONT WANT THIS THING WE’VE GOT, IN FACT I THINK I LIKE YOU, I’M REALLY FUCKING LIKING YOU A LOT. SO LET’S GO ON A DATE OR STAY IN YOUR FLAT, FOOLS ARE GONNA TALK BUT I DON’T CARE ABOUT THAT, WE DON’T HAVE TO TALK ABOUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO TALK ABOUT ME, LETS HAVE FUN AND PRETEND WE’RE FINE, WHILE WE’RE YOUNG AND FREE AND STUPID, WE SHOULD HELP EACH OTHER OUT, COZ FUCKING VALENTINES AND CUPID, ARE FUCKING LAME WITHOUT A DOUBT, LET’S CALL IN SICK AND DRAW THE BLINDS AND GET SOME FUCKING BREAKFAST IN YOUR BED. SO MIX YOUR MILK WITH MY COCO POPS, MILKY MILKY COCO, MILKY MILKY RIGHT. WE DON’T HAVE TO TALK ABOUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO TALK ABOUT ME, LETS HAVE FUN AND PRETEND WE’RE FINE
EVERYTHING’S FINE, YOU’RE DOING FINE, I’M FEELING FINE, I THINK WE’RE FINE
Track Name: Warp Zones
NO GIRL, NO CASH, NO CAR, NO FLAT, NO GYM MEMBERSHIP, I CANT AFFORD A FUCKIN SIX PACK
NO SALSA, NO CRISPS, I GOT A CHAIR BUT NO TABLE, I MISSED THE END OF LOST BECAUSE THEY CUT MY FUCKING CABLE. EVERY NOW AND THEN, I GET OUTSIDE OF MY ROOM, I’LL GO TO A BAR AND MAYBE, TALK TO PEOPLE TOO, THAT GIRL, THAT SMILE, IT’S MAKING THIS WORTHWHILE, I’M WALKING TO HER TABLE, AND I’VE BEEN WALKING FOR MILES, I’M SWEATING AND I’M STUTTERING AND LAUGHING TOO MUCH, I THINK ONE OF MY PROBLEMS IS I OVER-THINK STUFF, I BET SHE THINKS THAT I’M ACTING CREEPY, I WISH I WAS AT HOME AND PLAYING DONKEY KONG COUNTRY. MY LIFE, ITS WASTING AWAY, I’M POURING, MY TIME DOWN THE DRAIN, I’M LONELY, AND BORED OH WOE IS ME, I’LL STAY HERE, I’LL BE JUST FINE, I’M LEAVING, MY PAST BEHIND, AND AIMING, MY CHAIR AT MY TV, COULD I BORROW YOUR FOUR-PLUG SOCKET EXTENSION? MY VIDEO GAMES REQUIRE URGENT ATTENTION, I DON’T EVER WANNA SPRING INTO ACTION, BEATING HIGH SCORES IS A GREAT DISTRACTION.
Track Name: Deathbed
IF I HAD MY TIME AGAIN, I’D MAKE BETTER FRIENDS, IMAGINE MYSELF READING ALL THE LETTERS THAT THEY’D SEND, COS I’D BE IN THE COUNTRY, LIVING IN THE TREES, COS I JUST DON’T LIKE PEOPLE AND I DON’T THINK THEY LIKE ME. AS I KEEP GETTING OLDER, MY SHOULDER KEEPS ON GETTING COLDER, AND I JUST WANT MY TIME AGAIN
Track Name: Fall Guy
IF HIGH SCHOOL’S A MINIATURE VERSION OF SOCIETY LIKE THEY SAY, THEN FUCK THIS I’M OUT, ‘CAUSE IF I HAVE TO SPEND TIME WITH THESE MORONS FOR ONE MORE DAY, I DON’T KNOW HOW I WILL RESIST TAKING MYSELF UP ONTO THE ROOF OF THE SCHOOL AND DIVING OFF LIKE AN OLYMPIAN WHO FORGOT ABOUT THE POOL, THE MORNING PAPERS WILL BE FILLED WITH NEWS OF THE AWFUL TRAGEDY, OF HOW YOUNG JOE DEPARTED THE MORTAL COIL AT THE YOUNG AGE OF 15, LEAVING HIS BRAIN LYING AROUND FOR ALL THE SCHOOL TO SEE. SERIOUSLY, I’D NEVER GO AND DO ANYTHING LIKE THAT, BUT IT’S GOOD TO VENT, BUT THINKING ABOUT IT, THE ROOF’S A GOOD PLACE TO GET SOME PEACE AND QUIET, SO UP I WENT, SO FAR MY PLAN TO AVOID HUMAN CONTACT WAS ALL GOING JUST FINE, ‘TIL THE CRASHING SOUND OF THE LESSON BELL TOOK ME BY SURPRISE, THE SLIPPY TILES UP ON THE ROOF GAVE UP THEIR HOLD ON ME, THE GROUND RUSHING TOWARDS MY FACE IS THE NEXT THING I SEE, A CRUNCH FOLLOWS A CRASH, EVERYTHING IS GOING BLACK
Track Name: The Ballad Of Bonnie Macfarlane
I’M BROKEN, AND I’M BLEEDING, IT’S A GOOD JOB THAT YOU DIDN’T LEAVE ME, I’M A, GOOD MAN WILL YOU BELIEVE IT? PUT YOUR HANDS UP WHERE I CAN SEE THEM, I DON’T THINK I COULD HAVE MADE IT MORE, OBVIOUS WHAT I CAME HERE FOR, TAKE THE BOUNTY, TAKE THE HORSE, TAKING LIVES WITHOUT REMORSE. LEAVE ME ALONE YOU SAY NO NO NO NO, TIMES ARE A CHANGING DOWN IN ARMADILLO, I’M GETTING CLOSE, AND BILL CAN’T RUN FOREVER, VIVA MEXICO! I’M WILLING AND I’M ABLE, TO STOP THE FLAMES IN THE STABLE, CUT MY FINGER OFF ON THE TABLE, AND YOU STILL SAY DO ME A FAVOUR, CAN YOU FIND MY HUSBAND, SAVE MY WIFE, I’D RATHER TAKE A CHANCE ON A MOONLIT RIDE, SKIN A WOLF IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT, COS THIS WILL FETCH A REAL GOOD PRICE. LEAVE ME ALONE YOU SAY NO NO NO NO, TIMES ARE A CHANGING DOWN BY LAKE DON JULIO, I’M GETTING CLOSE, AND BILL CAN’T RUN FOREVER, VIVA MEXICO!
Track Name: KGB
WOKE ME UP AROUND 3AM, HEARD A NOISE THEN IT CAME AGAIN, I WAS SCARED WHAT SHOULD I DO? PACK YOUR BAGS AND GET OUT DUDE (AND QUICKLY TOO), IT WAS A SECRET AGENT THAT DID THIS TO ME, I THINK HE WAS FROM THE KGB, I WAS SLEEPING, I WAS FINE, THEN THEY PLANTED IT IN MY MIND (NOW I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO) GRABBED MY BAGS AND HEADED OUT, I WASN’T SURE WHAT IT WAS ALL ABOUT, AS I LEFT I SAW TWO GUYS (THEY LOOKED LIKE SPIES), DRINKING VODKA THROUGH THEIR EYES (WHAT A SURPRISE)
Track Name: Heartbroken
OPEN UP MY GUT, I’M NOT SURE WHAT WILL COME OUT, BUT ONE THING I KNOW, IS YOU’RE THE ONLY ONE THAT I THINK ABOUT, I’M LOSING TRACK OF WHO I REALLY AM THESE DAYS, BUT WHEN I LOOK INTO YOUR EYES, I’VE GOT EVERYTHING STRAIGHT, I’M NOT QUITE SURE, I CAN BE WHO YOU WANT ME TO, “PUNCHING BAD GUYS” IS ALWAYS GETTING IN THE WAY OF ME AND YOU, RESPONSIBILITIES ARE OKAY WHEN THEY DON’T EAT, UP ALL YOUR TIME AND I’M GETTING THE FEELING, SOMEONE’S GONNA GET THEIR HEART BROKEN, AND IT PROBABLY WON’T BE YOU, BUT MAYBE THEY’LL KILL ME, MAYBE THEY’LL KILL YOU, OR BOTH, OPEN UP MY GUT, I’M NOT SURE WHAT WILL COME OUT, BUT ONE THING I KNOW, IS YOU’RE THE ONLY ONE I THINK ABOUT, ONE DAY I’M SURE, I’LL FIND OUT WHICH IS MY REAL FACE, I KNOW DEEP DOWN, I’LL FIND OUT THE HARD WAY, OBVIOUSLY, I REALLY WANT THIS TO WORK OUT, BUT IF YOU KNEW I SPEND ALL MY TIME, ALWAYS HANGING ABOUT, WITH A MAN WITH 4 ROBOT ARMS, A LIZARD IN A LAB COAT AND PURPLE PANTS, A CACKLING GOBLIN WHO’S MY BEST FRIEND’S DAD, A CONVICTED FELON WHO’S MADE OF SAND, AND THEY ALL WANT TO KILL ME, I’VE GOT A FEELING IT’D FREAK YOU OUT, SOMEONE’S GONNA GET THEIR HEART BROKEN, AND IT PROBABLY WON’T BE YOU, BUT MAYBE THEY’LL KILL ME, MAYBE THEY’LL KILL YOU, OR BOTH
