Track Name: This Side Spirit
Learned by one
Passed to another
But we can't stop checking ideas
Don't be fooled by correlation
Learned by one
Passed to another
But we can't stop checking ideas
Don't be fooled by correlation
If we haven't considered all of the variables
Learned by one
Passed to another
But we can't stop checking ideas
Don't be fooled by correlation
Just cos it suits you doesn't make it correct

There's no need to be terrified of living and not knowing
Track Name: Skateboard Girl
She came from Manchester but sounded like a southerner
And moved into Muswell Hill
When your folks decided they were broke
It must have been a bitter pill

Skateboard giiiiiirl
All the things you did for me
More than dirty laundry
Skateboard giiiiiirl
Brought me into this world

At first you became a nurse
Took the old man on an African adventure
Doing single mums favours
Those packets of Quavers
Will never be a nutritional breakfast
Track Name: FSB
90% approval rating
Scaring the shit out of their citizens
Gets no complaints from their constituents
Militiamen populating the government
Effectively dealt with all of their dissidents
Evident dangers of supporting the opposition
So there is no chance of ever losing power
Look out for ourselves, charging for kilowatt hours

They used to speak of diversified industry
But oil and gas can't fund you endlessly
If journalists aren't careful with column fillers
Immunity is given to contract killers
Training received from the state security
Secret agreements circumvent the electorate
If you disagree you must hate the motherland
Corruption as standard
Castles built in the sand
Track Name: Cannonball Bernie
Strong and stable, steady and able
Bernie's feet are firmly under the table
He made a conscious decision not to take a position of power
Cos he couldn't trust himself for even an hour
Everybody wants a minute
Just a quick question
A sudden congestion before you finish
When we all clock off we want to get our rocks off
Well, he's no different from you

Flying through life like a cannonball
Has he ever thought what it's like on the other side
Through life like a cannonball
If the winds change his direction's the same

Generation X had come to expect
That things would get better than the previous year
Work on his house at the weekend
Match of the Day and then Top Gear
His dad always told him straighten up and fly right
But he don't know what to do now his parent are gone
He said "I've had the same feeling every day of my life
And now I'm being told that it's wrong"

Flying through life like a cannonball
Has he ever thought what it's like on the other side
Through life like a cannonball
If the winds change his direction's the same
Track Name: Je Suis Un Poisson
I've walked every road
Watch the sun cross the sky
I'll share any load
Never say goodbye
The writing on the wall
Je suis un poisson
J'aime les fleurs
I've walked every road
Watch the sun cross the sky
I'll share any load
Just never say goodbye
I'm sure that one day
I'll miss being here
With insects and trees
I'll wait patiently
Track Name: Heat Death
Calm down, the more you move the more you lose
Your light will be fading soon

After all the heat will be released
In the end the universe will be at peace

Don't fear the heat death
Take comfort in the entropy
Track Name: You Changed My World
A million shattered pieces perfectly reformed
Something to protect from the static
I never guessed I'd have to make this journey
A hundred miles the desert stretched beneath me
Before it finally made way for something fertile
With each new step the thaw creeps further


Climbing on the slanted staircase
Where the keycard keeps a secret beneath it
Fresh, clean and replenished
See if it's been moved when you're out of the room
A trumpet plays in the street
Avoiding defecation, missing a beat
A neat town turning upside down
Rooftop terraces where the pigeons drown a dream
Of refugees rejected seven times a second
And sucking the smug sense of satisfaction and a subtle reaction
Every hundred metres take a rest
From walking further and further
Past the city limits
Past the witty cynics
Wait a minute in the latin quarter
Bought a beret, hooray
Won't protect from the rain
Sensible ladies
100 greatest hits of the 80s
Maybe sentimental, reach a better level
Staring off the edge of the bed
A miniature kingdom
Waiting for the girl
You changed my world
You changed my world
Track Name: Today I'm Skipping Work
Won't you sing a song for me
One that we can sing 'til the end
Sing it about bonhomie
And fraternity with your friends
They might let you down sometimes
But it's okay
Tides will turn and wee can learn
To laugh another day

Won't you make some food for me
A sandwich filled with ham and cheese
My mouth is open wide
Waiting for some tasty treats
If the rumbling in my belly
Starts to grow
It could cause catastrophe
1883, Krakatoa

Today I'm skipping work
I missed the turn-off and kept going
My head is full of half-baked plans
The world is bigger
Than a TV screen can show me
I want to t see it all first-hand

Now I'm watching Tottenham
And they might just win a game
It's a question that hinges upon
The goals of Harry Kane
Sometimes they play badly
But mostly they play nice
But mostly isn't good enough
There is no second prize (except for TV money)

As the sun goes down
Opportunities drift away
None of my intentions thrive
When I procrastinate
The work of today
Must now wait until tomorrow
The evening is for drinking
And anything that may follow

Today I'm skipping work
I missed the turn-off and kept going
My head is full of half-baked plans
The world is bigger
Than a TV screen can show me
I want to t see it all first-hand
Track Name: Keizoku Wa Chikara Nari
Think of these words when you feel like giving up
Failure is success that just hasn't happened yet
You're learning clues every time you're slipping up
An impossible leap in 100 little steps
