Track Name: Glum Buzzard (featuring Dusty Moonan)
I AM GLUM BUZZARD.
KING OF CLOUDS OVER HAPPY TOWN
OF REGAL DESCENT I ALWAYS LOOK DOWN
UPON THE PEASENTS OF HAPPY TOWN

MY CLOUD OF BLUE BLOOD
IS FULL OF PLENTY AND LOADED WITH FUDD
AINT THAT JUST THE WAY WITH BLUE BLOOD
I AM GLUM BUZZARD
THE CLOUDS ARE ALWAYS DARK ON YOUR SIDE OF TOWN WHEN IM AROUND
DONT TRUST EM
MORE GLUM THAN YOU CAN SHAKE A PLUM AT

SILVER CLOUDS ARE FOR PUSSY'S
Track Name: Sunday Drunk
WOKE UP SMILING
FEELING ALMOST HUMAN
SO LOOK OUT BELOW
SOMETHING IS WRONG HERE
BUT IM SURE THE SKY WILL SOON START MELTING AGAIN


CUZ EVERYTHING'S THE WRONG WAY ROUND
IM SUNDAY DRUNK IN THURSDAY TOWN
EVERYTHING IS UPSIDE DOWN
SUNDAY DRUNK IN THURSDAY TOWN


WOKE UP JOYFULL
FEELING ALMOST ABLE
BIRDS COUGHING BETTER
AS THE WORLD'S FULL OF COLOUR
BUT IM THE SURE THE CROWS WILL SOON START CIRCLING AGAIN


EVERYTHING'S THE WRONG WAY ROUND
IM SUNDAY DRUNK IN THURSDAY TOWN
EVERYTHING IS UPSIDE DOWN
SUNDAY DRUNK IN THURSDAY TOWN


I SOME TIMES FEEL I'VE ARRIVED AT THE WRONG LOCATION
STUCK AT THE AIRPORT AS THE TRAIN IT LEAVES THE STATION.

EVERYTHING'S THE WRONG WAY ROUND
IM SUNDAY DRUNK IN THURSDAY TOWN
EVERYTHING IS UPSIDE DOWN
SUNDAY DRUNK IN THURSDAY TOWN
Track Name: Wish
HEADED FOR THE CRISIS OF MY CREATION
LIVING ON THE PLANET DOOM DESTINATION
GONNA MAKE THE 13TH FLOOR ELEVATION
AGITATED BY MY OWN AGITATION
THOUSAND MILLION CIRCUITS
CLICKING IN MY BRAIN,
BUZZ, BUZZ, DING, DING,
THAT'S THINKING AGAIN

NO BREAKING FREE FROM MY IRRITATION
NO PEACE OF MY MIND OR PASSIVE SEDATION
NO HAPPY CHANGE OR RECUPERATION
ANGER AND RAGE IN PURE ESCALATION
THOUSAND MILLION CIRCUITS
CLICKING IN MY BRAIN,
BUZZ, BUZZ, DING, DING,
THAT'S THINKING AGAIN

I WISH I COULD TURN IT OFF I
WISH I COULD TURN IT OFF I

SICK OF SEEING TRUTH COS I'M SICK OF BEING SAD
IT DOESN'T REALLY MATTER WHAT I NEVER REALLY HAD
EVERY TIME I LOOK TO SEE THINGS ARE LOOKING BAD
IT DOESN'T MATTER ACTUALLY I THINK I'M GOING MAD
THOUSAND MILLION CIRCUITS
CLICKING IN MY BRAIN,
BUZZ, BUZZ, DING, DING,
THAT'S THINKING AGAIN
BUZZ, BUZZ, DING, DING,
I'M THINKING AGAIN
Track Name: Day After Day
WITH TALK OF PEACE AND THE JESUS RAP
A LOVING KISS AND A FATHERS STRAP
THEY STRAP ME DOWN AND HOLD ME BACK
TIE ME UP AND GIVE ME SLACK
WAVE THE FLAG AND LEAD ME ON
POINT THE WAY AND CALL ME SON
AND THEN THEY STAB ME IN THE BACK

SO WHEN WILL WE BE HAPPY
WHEN WILL WE BE FREE
WHEN WE NEVER SEEM TO REACH
THE PLACE WE'D LIKE TO BE

WITH TALK OF GREED THE MONEY GAME
IN FATHERS VOICE THEY CALL MY NAME
TO PLAY THE COW WHO MAKES THE CASH
THAT THEY THEN USE TO BUILD A STASH
TO PROVE A POINT THEY PUT YOU DOWN
CHANGE THE BLAME AND TWIST YOU ROUND
AS THEY STAB YOU IN THE BACK

SO WHEN WILL WE BE HAPPY
WHEN WILL WE BE FREE
WHEN WE NEVER SEEM TO REACH
THE PLACE WE'D LIKE TO BE
WE NEVER SEEM TO STAND
AND WE NEVER SEEM TO FALL
IN A MEDIOCRE MEDIUM WE CRAWL

AND DAY AFTER DAY
THEY TAKE MY DREAMS AWAY
SEND ME OFF TO PLAY IN THE DARK
AND DAY AFTER DAY
THEY TAKE MY DREAMS AWAY
AND THEN THEY STAB ME IN THE BACK

WITH TALK OF PEACE AND THE JESUS RAP
A LOVING KISS AND A FATHERS STRAP
THEY STRAP ME DOWN AND HOLD ME BACK
TIE ME UP AND GIVE ME SLACK
TO PROVE A POINT THEY PUT YOU DOWN
THEY CHANGE THE BLAME AND TWIST YOU ROUND
AS THEY THEY STAB US IN THE BACK

SO WHEN WILL WE BE HAPPY
WHEN WILL WE BE FREE
WHEN WE NEVER SEEM TO REACH
THE PLACE WE'D LIKE TO BE
WE NEVER SEEM TO STAND
AND WE NEVER SEEM TO FALL
IN A MEDIOCRE MEDIUM WE CRAWL
Track Name: Save Me
I BEEN SMOKING OFF THE CALORIES
DROPPING BREAD ON THE FLOOR
THROWING FLIES INTO A STREAM
AND LEAVING SIGNS ON THE DOOR

WENT DANCING AROUND
ON THE TIP OF A CLOUD
I BEEN FALLING OVER MY FEET
BEEN STRUGGLING TO THINK
WHEN I AINT HAD A DRINK
AND SPEAK TO PEOPLE I MEET

I BEEN TREKKING THROUGH HILLS AND FIELDS
WONDERING WHY MEMORIES LEAVE MARKS
LIVING IN BOOKS AND FILMS
AND STRUGGLING TO BRING MYSELF BACK

WENT HANGIN AROUND
IN THE WRONG CROWD
DIPPING MY TOE IN THE SEA
BEEN STRUGGLING TO FIND
FROM HERE ON THE SIDE
A FISH IN THE SEA FOR ME
AND WILL IT
SAVE ME
FROM MYSELF

I BEEN TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT THINGS MEAN
SITTING IN FRONT OF A PC SCREEN
LIVING IN A SMOKE FUELED DREAM
I BEEN TRYING HARD NOT TO BE SCENE

WENT DANCING AROUND
ON THE TIP OF A CLOUD
BEEN FALLING OVER MY FEET
I BEEN STRUGGLING TO THINK
WHEN I AINT HAD A DRINK
AND SPEAK TO PEOPLE I MEET
BEEN LOOKING UP HIGH
AT THE COOL GREY SKY
AND DANCING OUT IN THE RAIN
BEEN WANTING TO KNOW
WHATS UP OR BELOW
AS I CIRCLE ROUND THE DRAIN
AND WILL IT
SAVE ME
FROM MYSELF
Track Name: Sticks And Stones
STICKS AND STONES WILL BRAKE MY BONES
NAMES FOREVER HAUNT ME
DRAIN MY HEART REVERSE MY SMILE
TURN MY MIND UPON ME
VOCAL BEATINGS BRING US DOWN
CRAWL AROUND INSIDE US
UGLY WORDS FILLED WITH PAIN
MADE TO MAIM AND HARM US

TURN ME BITTER FILLED WITH HATE
MAKE ME CRUEL AND ANGRY
POLLUTE MY THOUGHTS CHANGE MY WAYS
TURN MYSELF UPON ME
PSYCHO WARFARE WARPS THE MIND
CRAWLING ROUND INSIDE US
TWISTED THOUGHTS DISTORT THE WORLD
LETS PUT IT ALL BEHIND US
LETS PUT IT ALL BEHIND US


THE BROKEN EGO YOU CANT SEE
THE PAIN OF INSECURITY
WEDNESDAY CHILD THAT CANT BREAK FREE
FROM THE BLOODY WOUNDS OF MISERY

STICKS AND STONES MAY BREAK MY BONES

(LETS PUT IT ALL BEHIND US NOW)
Track Name: Rain
HERE COMES THE CASCADE
THAT SLOW ROLLING THUNDER
HERE COMES THAT SHADOW
TO SLOWLY PULL YOU UNDER
THAT SINKING AGAIN
WHEN THAT CLOUD DESCENDS

AND THAT DARK CLOUD JUST WASHES OVER YOU
AND THAT DARK CLOUD JUST WASHES OVER
I JUST LET IT WASH OVER ME TOO
THAT DARK CLOUD JUST WASHES OVER YOU

HERE COMES THAT CLOUDBURST
THAT SADNESS IN BLOOM
THAT DIM CLOAK OF DARKNESS
THAT DEEP SHADE OF BLUE
THAT SINKING AGAIN
WHEN THAT CLOUD DESCENDS

AND THAT DARK CLOUD JUST WASHES OVER YOU
AND THAT DARK CLOUD JUST WASHES OVER
I JUST LET IT WASH OVER ME TOO
THAT DARK CLOUD JUST WASHES OVER YOU

SO WHERE YOU GONNA RUN
WHEN THE RAIN COMES
AND ITS BEATING DOWN LIKE A BIG DRUM

AND YOUR DARK CLOUD JUST WASHES OVER YOU
AND YOUR DARK CLOUD JUST WASHES OVER
I JUST LET IT WASH OVER ME TOO
AND THAT DARK CLOUD JUST WASHES OVER YOU
Track Name: Cracked
A CRACKED MIRROR REFLECTS
THE CRACKED FEATURES OF A CRACKED UP MAN
BEHIND CRACKED EYES LIES
THE CRACKED RELICS OF CRACKED UP PLANS
THE CRACKED SMILES ON CRACKED DAYS
THE CRACKED PATHS OF CRACKED WAYS

A CRACKET MIRROR REFLECTS
THE CRACKED PAST OF A CRACKED UP TIME
IN A CRACKED MEMORY
IS A CRACKED SHADOW OF A CRACKED UP PRIME
THE CRACKED SMILES ON CRACKED DAYS
THE CRACKED PATHS OF CRACKED WAYS
HOW FAR WILL YOU STRETCH BEFORE YOU CRACK
HOW LONG TIL THE LIGHTS FADE AND IT ALL TURNS BLACK
HOW FAR WILL YOU STRETCH BEFORE YOU CRACK

CRACKED ON THE SURFACE
AND CRACKED TO THE CORE
CRACKED LIKE A CUP
THATS BEEN CRACKED ON THE FLOOR

HOW FAR WILL YOU STRETCH BEFORE YOU CRACK
HOW LONG TIL THE LIGHTS FADE AND IT ALL TURNS BLACK
HOW FAR WILL YOU STRETCH BEFORE YOU CRACK
Track Name: Love On The Planet Doom
I'VE GOT A HUNGER FOR PASSION
I'VE GOT A HUNGER FOR LOVE
I'VE CRIED LIKE A BABY
I'VE CRIED FOR LOVE
I'M ONLY HUMAN
JUST FLESH AND BONE
FILLED WITH EMOTION
I CRY ALONE

LOVE ON THE PLANET IS A BATTLEFIELD
ON THE PLANET IS A BATTLEFIELD
ON THE PLANET IS A BATTLEFIELD
I'VE CRIED FOR LOVE

I'VE SEEN THE FUTURE
IT DONT LOOK GOOD
A CULTURE OR MURDER
FREEDOM WROTE IN BLOOD
LIFE'S NOT RESPECTED
WANT BEYOND THE NEED
LOVE IS NOT A QUESTION
ATTENTION BORN IN GREED

LOVE ON THE PLANET IS A BATTLEFIELD
ON THE PLANET IS A BATTLEFIELD
ON THE PLANET IS A BATTLEFIELD
I'VE CRIED FOR LOVE

LOVE ON THE PLANET IS A BATTLEFIELD
ON THE PLANET IS A BATTLEFIELD
ON THE PLANET IS A BATTLEFIELD
I'VE CRIED FOR LOVE
Track Name: Break The Seal
AS I RATTLE MY BRAINS FOR WORDS TO FIND
THE PAST APPEARS AND COMES TO MIND
DREAM I DREAM AGAIN
SHADOWS OF A BYE GONE DAY
TIDES OF HOPE WASHED AWAY
DREAM I DREAM AGAIN

AND THERE'S A GAP THAT MUST BE FILLED
AND THERE'S A PAIN THAT MUST BE KILLED
AND THERE'S A PURPOSE I MUST FIND
TO FILL THE EMPTYNESS WITHIN MY MIND

AS I WALK ALONE ON STRANGER STREET
SEARCH FOR HOPE THE CHANCE TO GREET
DREAM I DREAM AGAIN
ENDLESS DAYS, ENDLESS NIGHTS
ALL ALONE WITHOUT DELIGHTS
DREAM I DREAM AGAIN

AND THERE'S A GAP THAT MUST BE FILLED
AND THERE'S A PAIN THAT MUST BE KILLED
AND THERE'S A PURPOSE I MUST FIND
TO FILL THE EMPTYNESS WITHIN MY MIND

THE SAME OLD TRAIN KEEPS COMING IN
IT TAKES ME THERE AND HOME AGAIN
IT'S JUST THE SAME IT'S GROWING OLD
THE SAME OLD FUTURE GROWING COLD
WHERE IS THE DOOR I NEED TO OPEN
WHERE IS THE SEAL I NEED TO BREAK

AND THERE'S A GAP THAT MUST BE FILLED
AND THERE'S A PAIN THAT MUST BE KILLED
AND THERE'S A PURPOSE I MUST FIND
TO FILL THE EMPTYNESS WITHIN MY MIND
Track Name: Just Passing Through (featuring Stacey Bates)
BRAIN DEAD FAME HOUNDS
CLOGGING UP MY TELEVISION
INBRED ,INCESTICIOUS AND
THATS JUST THE POLITICIAN
THE SILENT VOICES ARE EASY TO DISMISS
DESTINY STEAMS HEADLONG TO THE ABYSS
AND I HAVE ALWAYS KNOWN MY PART
BABY I WAS DOOMED FROM THE START
SO DONT GET UP
IM JUST PASSING THROUGH
JUST WASTING TIME
HERE ON PLANET DOOM

HATE FILLED FEAR LEADERS
FILLING US WITH TERROR
MORE NINJA SMOKE BOMB
TO COVER UP THE ERROR
THE DREAM IS OVER AND ALL HOPE DEAD
THE OPTIMIST TOOK A BULLET TO THE HEAD
THOUGH I HAVE ALWAYS KNOWN MY PART
BABY I WAS DOOMED FROM THE START
SO DONT GET UP
IM JUST PASSING THROUGH
JUST WASTING TIME
HERE ON PLANET DOOM

WAR WHORE BANK SLAVES
AND ALL THE MONEY'S GONE
A QUICK AND EASY ANSWER
IS TO BUILT ANOTHER BOMB
FAITH SHE VANISHED DOWN THE DRAIN
THE RAPTURE IS ARRIVING ON THE TRAIN
BUT I HAVE ALWAYS KNOWN MY PART
BABY YOU WAS DOOMED FROM THE START
SO DONT GET UP
IM JUST PASSING THROUGH
JUST WASTING TIME
HERE ON PLANET DOOM
