Track Name: Don't Freak Out
Don’t Freak Out!
Don’t Freak Out!
You thought you knew what it was all about…
And now you do so – Don’t Freak Out!

I am, a mix of flesh blood, feelings and emotions
Goddamn, can you believe what counts as news in this day and age?
Run the digits
Dial 9 for enhanced communication
We’ll broadcast…
Even if nothing changes…

Now you know – Don’t Freak Out!
Take it easy now – Don’t Freak Out!
You thought you knew what it was all about…
And now you do so – Don’t Freak Out!

That’s it. I quit, I’m not doing this anymore…
You can take your job and shovel it.
‘cos I can dig my own holes…
Silent ringing
Dial 4 if you don’t care no more
Still receiving
Once your fingers on the trigger don’t let it go…

Now you know – Don’t Freak Out!
Take it easy now – Don’t Freak Out!
You thought you knew what it was all about…
And now you do so – Don’t Freak Out!
Track Name: Just Can't Win
I’m metaphorically out on a limb
I know that realistically the chances are slim
But hot-damn right now we looking so fly
So come on wrinkles let’s go bag another bad guy…
‘sa long walk down the highway to freedom
It’s a little bit faster if you get a car
Driving past all the bugs and the road-kill
With the sneaking feeling you’ve left the oven on…

You can’t get it started – Cos you know it won’t stop
Don’t get it started – Cos you know it won’t stop
And you try, and you try, still you try, so you try…

But it seems some-days – You just can’t win
We move on, we grow strong, we live to fight another day
Sometimes you’re making music and you cannot give it away
But I’m not subject to the feelings of sadness
I keep doing the same things – Some might call it madness…
But it’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright, it’s okay…
Do I look like I’d be easily offended?
Well you can juris my diction and suck on my fiction
Any time of the night or day

You can’t get it started – Cos you know it won’t stop
Don’t get it started – Cos you know it won’t stop
And you try, and you try, still you try, so you try…
But it seems some-days – You just can’t win

So the world spins round – The gravity pins us down
It ain’t so easy to go falling off a planet
But some of the people that I’ve met in my time
Well I’m quite confident that they could manage it…
They don’t know how to use the three sea-shells?
Well what would you do, with the three sea-shells?
But of course it takes all sorts…
Broadly those who can and those who can’t handle it…

You can’t get it started – Cos you know it won’t stop
Don’t get it started – Cos you know it won’t stop
And you try, and you try, still you try, so you try…
But it seems some-days – You we just can’t win
Track Name: Catfish
If you cook the cat-fish, the cat-fish gone never be ready…
That’s how it is, and how it always must be
And you can be tall without standing on my shoulders
And you can be strong without the need for violence

Cook the Cat-Fish
Cook the Cat-Fish
Cook the Cat-Fish
Well you know I’d say anything if it gets a reaction

If you cook the cat-fish, the cat-fish gone never be ready
That’s how it is, and how it always must be
And sometimes the old man can see more from the bottom
Than the young man at the top of the tree

Cook the Cat-Fish
Cook the Cat-Fish
Cook the Cat-Fish
Well you know I’d say anything if it gets a reaction
Cook the Cat-Fish
Cook the Cat-Fish
Cook the Cat-Fish
What else you supposed to do with it?
Track Name: The Perils Of Time Travel
When you’re looking back, cut history a little slack…
‘cos the things you’re looking at…
They can seem a little different through the eyes of hindsight
The tick tock of the clock that won’t stop
But relax, we’ll turn the hands back
And maybe make one or two changes…

There’s something wrong with the here and now
The here and now’s not the here and now
There’s something wrong with the here and now
The here and now’s not the here and now

No need to get all ethical
When you’re dealing in hypotheticals
Justified by the simple reason
Time-travel ain’t never gonna happen…
But ain’t ya seen the TV?
One day it’ll be easy…
And when it is, I’ll tell you this…
If there’s no rules there’ll be a disaster…

There’s something wrong with the here and now
The here and now’s not the here and now
There’s something wrong with the here and now
The here and now’s not the here and now

But if we went forward, instead of back
Then the things we’d be looking at
Would be unseen as they haven’t happened
I don’t wanna bring nothin’ back
Maybe memorise some sporting facts…
Those who won and those who scored
But goddamn I want a hover-board!!

You can’t travel in time…
Thank-you Einstein…
