Stay Outta The Woods Old Poppa Joe, Knew way more than anyone would ever wanna know Lived his life on the land, With a far-away look in his eyes and dirty hands And on the day that he passed, He stuttered out the words that it turned out would be his last He said, "Kid, Stay outta the woods, stay outta the woods, stay outta the woods, They're not for you." Sweet Lucy Claire, Always gave off the impression she was only half there Wore long sleeves in the sun And dated a load of guys but never really seemed to find the one But when she did find a mate They'd always suggest, "How bout a picnic for a date?" And she'd reply with a glare "OK sure, but Stay outta the woods, stay outta the woods stay outta the woods There's something there..." Kids in the town Have a million different stories bout the shit that goes down As strange smells, shapes and lights Have been known to be seen around these parts at night It's like the spirit of the trees Casts its spell across this whole community And now the one thing you'll understand, look Stay outta the woods, stay outta the woods, stay outta the woods It's out of hand Stay Outta the Woods

As machines read the diaries we don't know we're writing Alone on the beach of each digital island There's some can't forget what the rest can't remember A boat made of glass on an ocean of answers The hive mind's eye in a triangle Falls like a drug from the sky, seem to find ourselves Paying for all our free time Like the sun didn't shine but I'm Just not sure that letting the cat out the bag worked It looks kind of faint like the ghost of an advert And our boss in a box needs an upgrade of shoutware Like as if the future was ever about fair or Moving on, we'd be eating the Curtains, is that what you want? No, it isn't. Now Get your clown costume back on, Drink it down like a bomb They're only your eyes, love, you don't have to use em The man in the sky would say, it's confusing And the battle goes on for as long as we're losing Balancing conviction out with prostitution The dice of days keep on rolling till Every last rainbow turns grey, it's a monster we All wait for Santa to slay But our hopes are betrayed.

T.L.D.R 03:33
Well I really don't mean What it looks like I mean Though I know it might seem like that If you just looked at the screen But I really don't feel How you'd have thought that I feel And I only just realized Now I'm stuck in between In this age of information Instant miscommunication Can be so goddam frustrating To the more inclined to intimate interpretation All of these frozen moments Holding on Waiting for a response Have had their context stolen Spluttered out by a robotic tongue CHORUS Half my whole communication Is intoned And dictated by a system Of unknowns But a sentence loses all its soul in the sent box When what's then got's shown I'll be hammering the keyboard tryin to delete What I already wrote CHORUS T.L.D.R.

Sad Socks 04:00
Set their precedents With popes and presidents It seems self evident The dreams that tether them are Burning away, turning to day Parading dazed to fade Ah sad socks the truth hurts bad Tell your stories in a plastic bag The rat-like regimen Of traps with treasure in And crap re-editing Of maps and medicine The end of the start, pen to the heart Friend in the dark of everything Ah sad socks it all went wrong Got yourself wondering where you've gone.

Supermoon 02:58
Days and days and days we get to wait in, Shaved, betrayed, afraid and out of patience, We the subjectees of this abduction, Watched as our species was experimented on Wake up and shake yer cage Coz you know there's a supermoon tonight And we must all escape While there's still a chance I'd rather fight a fox, Than to remain in this nightmare all my life, And its got to the point where its Just too much to stand, ----An if we can get out, Then maybe we can find somewhere To get back underground And finally relax So now as one we crash Headlong into the walls until We look around to find Our prisons all lie smashed---- Down the corridor the windows open, Out into the night, our eyes awoken, Far from home but none the less surviving, Lab rabbits buzzin on the taste of freedom Over the next few weeks, The threat of danger was always in our minds, Hanging there like a cloud Waiting to rain misery, But in the end the realization it dawned on us in time, That we were alone,except for the grass and the trees. ----And those born after this Will never know what foxes are And much less scientists Like neither ever were Oh but once in a while Whenever there's a supermoon, Our descendants may well feel something in them stir----

Adidas Tears 02:58
Migration needs an 'im' these day I'm allowed, you're not Human traffic only goes one way They line 'em up along the docks Some arrive from Nestle Land Or Coca-Cola Bay And they come over here With their Adidas tears They're like, "Can we come in?" We're like, "No fuckin way!" So there's obviously an argument They say their hands are tied And if you'd ever been to Googletown You wouldn't question as to why The Reebok family And Mrs Microsoft Had to leave their whole lives And their culture behind For the streets paved with gold That are blatantly not At the border there's a truck held up With 20 Nikeees in the back All the way from ProctoGamblia Where the world's still flat And employment grows on trees But has to be sold off To afford the parades That they have every day Celebrating the fact That they're everyone's boss And then the aliens land And turn around and do you know what? As far as they're concerned We're a galactic laughing stock The only customer here's the shop.

You People 02:54
My inner misanthrope is putting on a show If I was in control You and everyone you know would be the first to go Alas it's not to be ,so still you're bugging me I'd like to say to the rest of humanity You people are all insane A runaway god damn train You've only yourselves to blame For the state this world's in Yeah I'll say it again You people are so messed up I'm here going, "What the fuck?" You act like you want things shit I'm disowning the lot of you, godammit, that's it! You boring bunch of cunts with all your bombs and guns And fake expressions on Blathering in acronyms and fucking emoticons If I could have my way I'd send you all to space You don't deserve this world Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls You are all insane A runaway god damn train You've only yourselves to blame For the state this world's in Yeah I'll say it again You people are so messed up I'm here going, "What the fuck?" You act like you want things shit I'm disowning the lot of you, godammit, that's it!

You'll be alright, lad You'll be a light that,shines on all you meet Connects with and completes I know the world's fucked But this is all just,a dangerous mirage No-one's really in charge An by the fruit you'll know the tree A symmetry of centuries We see what we believe ourselves to be Mostly So take it easy Don't let the drama drain your inner peace Stick with the ones who give you energy And if the situation sucks then leave We're taught to carry weight that isn't ours And innocently give our power But every person is a universe And one's blessing is another's curse Yeah most are lost here And they do not hear the music of the stars Since fear deafened their hearts I wish you wonders, May you go on to learn to love the rain And grow strong from your pain To satisfy these appetites for apoplectic archetypes That crack pipe filled with Kryptonite Called being in the right And on the darkest of nights Here in the shadow of death there is life May you always be gifted with the sight To see the rainbow between black and white And I'm no role model, god what a joke!, But I'll be here for you if you need owt May you know all on this earth as your tribe, And what it is to truly be alive.......
