Track Name: Shock to the System
Stop whatever you think you're doin',
the world's gone insane,
there's a new war brewin';
Nothing feels right when there's so much wrong
and you can't save the world with a rock n' roll song,
I got a normal life,
a job and a wife,
a nice shiny car on a white paved drive

(Sound the sirens, fire the pistons)
Shock the system, shock the system

Bored of staring at the same four walls,
Have to come runnin' when the man calls;
Trapped like a rat in a lucid dream
and nothing comes out when I try to scream,
I'm stuck in a race I never signed up for,
I chose last place to avoid the uproar

(Sound the sirens, fire the pistons)
Shock the system, shock the system
Track Name: Overnight Disaster
Oh no i'm stranded again,
I'm stuck outside in the rain,
I'm bleeding cash from my veins now;
I just found out no-one cares,
This fucking world isn't fair,
It don't applaud, it just stares out

I don't need to know all the reasons for why i'm here,
Read all about it,
I'm the fuck-up of the year

Yeah, I want my time,
Yeah, in the spotlight,
Overnight

It fell apart overnight,
Disaster sounded too right,
The bark was bad, but the bite kills;
Reality is a bitch,
We all just wanna get rich,
So we can pay for some cheap thrills

I don't need to know all the reasons for why i'm here,
Read all about it,
I'm the fuck-up of the year

Yeah, I want my time,
Yeah, in the spotlight

Little lost girl in a one-hit show
Little lost girl in a fucking hole
Oh no!

Yeah, I want my time,
Yeah, in the spotlight,
Overnight

Aldi saved our house
Track Name: Have You Seen the Light?
The wind has changed,
The sun's on my face,
and I am free;
Made my own luck,
Escaped the book,
They can't catch me

They all cried "have you seen the light?"
Must've slept through, I was up all night,
They all cried "have you seen the light?"
I saw it and ignored it and I still don't know if I was right

Worship idols?
You ain't disciples,
Roam like a beast;
Don't be too late,
Reject the faith,
Smell the coffee

They all cried "have you seen the light?"
Must've slept through, I was up all night,
They all cried "have you seen the light?"
I saw it and ignored it and I still don't know if I was right
Track Name: Get on it
Whiskey stain on my brand new jeans,
And you know just what it means,
and I feel just like i'm dead,
That doesn't matter,
You've gotta

Get, get on it,
baby right now,
Get, get on it,
Alright

If you can't hear me, read my lips,
We're all deaf 'til the music hits,
We're all skint 'til payday,
That doesn't matter, You've gotta find a way to

Get, get on it,
baby right now,
Get, get on it,
Alright

You can't hide
Track Name: The Plastic People
Here they come,
Lookin' clean,
Got their pictures in magazines,
But I know;

Raise your mobile phones,
You can take my picture and look at it at home,
Raise your mobile phones

The plastic people will lead us,
There will be catfights out on the streets,
and they'll dumb us down and defeat us,
It don't make no sense to me

Setting trends,
Forming scenes,
Picked by suited men for TV,
But I know;

Raise your mobile phones,
You can take my picture and look at it at home,
Raise your mobile phones

The plastic people will lead us,
There will be catfights out on the streets,
and they'll dumb us down and defeat us,
It don't make no sense to me

I need to see through this dead-end charade,
If Jesus existed i'd sit and i'd pray,
I've got one problem that i'd like to say,
I speak my confessions and go up in flames

Call me the joker, the drinker, the fool,
But they are the fire and you are the fuel

Raise your mobile phones,
You can take my picture and look at it at home,
Raise your mobile phones

The plastic people will lead us,
There will be catfights out on the streets,
and they'll dumb us down and defeat us,
It don't make no sense to me
Track Name: Deja Voodoo
Voodoo, have I been here before?
Black brew and smoke stained walls,
Doctor, administer the cure,
Wrap that medicine in a ball;
The curse, Legba's legacy,
The first to take your soul,
Doctor, pass that remedy,
Possessed, regress, reset

Want my, need my, love my deja life

Zombies, you're all living on your knees,
Wake the dead,
Doctor, where's the magic gone?
Voodoo voices,
headless head;
The spell, has been broken,
The smell of blood and weed,
Doctor, his eyes are smoking,
Possessed, regress, he said...

Want my, need my, love my deja life

Which doctor can bring me the cure?
Track Name: You Took My Rock n' Roll
Blurred lines, white lies,
Let's play pretend,
Another shot at happiness;
Twist those words until they fit;
There's nothing wrong with ignorance,
You've made a living out of it,
So why do we have to try?

Yeah (You took my rock n' roll),
Yeah (Now give back what you stole)

You rose quicker, I ain't bitter,
Maybe you're just better;
I know I can't win 'em all;
There's nothing here that's stopping me from trying,
Apart from my own fear of flying,
I'm gonna cut the ties

Yeah (You took my rock n' roll),
Yeah (Now give back what you stole)
Track Name: Follow the Leader
Am I under control?
Or under her spell?
This act is gettin' old,
I need to tell somebody to save me,
I'm tied down like my dreams,
My purpose, my passion, my fires gone cold

Follow the leader, you know you need her,
She's gonna leave you high and dry;
Follow the leader, don't let her bleed ya,
She's gonna leave you there to die

I'm stuck under her thumb,
She pushes down,
I'm sneaking in at midnight, scared to make a sound;
When did the power switch?
The angel became a bitch,
Don't fight back, don't argue,
Just do what you're told

Follow the leader, you know you need her,
She's gonna leave you high and dry;
Follow the leader, don't let her bleed ya,
She's gonna leave you there to die
Track Name: El Moli
The neon lights make a man feel invited,
I asked their girls to dance,
My lust was unrequited;
What am I doing here?
I can't afford the trouble,
How come nobody told me,
You only get what you pay for

El Moli

The drink is damn expensive,
At least the girls are cheap,
Unless you want an extra,
'Cos then the rates get steep;
What am I doing here?
I can't afford the trouble,
How come nobody told me,
You only get what you pay for

El Moli

If you're expecting flesh boy,
You're outta luck,
You're in El Moli where it's sixty Euro's for a fuck;
Open the door please,
This ain't my scene,
I gotta wash myself 'til i'm clean
Track Name: Livin' in the City
Stuck in a rut,
Yeah it's my tough luck,
But everywhere I go is the same;
Lines of blank faces in the same old places,
Here I am, here I go again

But you've gotta get through,
Gotta get through,
Paint your face and smile,
Go along with the ruse

You wanna wake up,
Without your make up

That grass ain't greener on the other side,
I gotta quit it, and I admit it,
I'm too sick to waste it

I know, I know you're living in a wasteland,
I know, I know it's true,
I know, I know you're livin' in the city,
With a million others just like you,
So find something new, but never let go

Your souls are standing still,
You've abused free will,
Your brains should be condemned;
We're giving you a choice,
You can make some noise,
Or join the flock with them

But you've gotta get through,
Gotta get through,
Paint your face and smile,
Go along with the ruse

You wanna wake up,
Without your make up

That grass ain't greener on the other side,
I gotta quit it, and I admit it,
I'm too sick to waste it

I know, I know you're living in a wasteland,
I know, I know it's true,
I know, I know you're livin' in the city,
With a million others just like you,
So find something new, but never let go

Walking through the town,
the sights can bring you down,
and make you weak;
Behind the cookie-cutter streets,
You'll find another scene,
A gutter-streak;
I know you, and I know that you'd like it too,
If only you would take a little time,
Give it a try,
And then you'd change your mind

I know, I know you're living in a wasteland,
I know, I know it's true,
I know, I know you're livin' in the city,
With a million others just like you,
So find something new, but never let go
Track Name: Horns & Heels
I thought that this was my time to shine,
It turns out i'm just asinine,
I'm chauvenistic, not realistic,
But I gotta try;

You've got no love affair around here, around here

You don't listen to what I say,
I'm just here to fucking play

So take off your dress,
And all of the rest, but leave those horns and heels,
Horns and heels;
When i'm done i'll take my coat and run

Think twice about rejecting me,
'Cos i'm your beer-goggle fantasy,
Don't try and hide it,
i know you're excited when you look at me

You've got no love affair around here, around here

You don't listen to what I say,
I'm just here to fucking play

So take off your dress,
And all of the rest, but leave those horns and heels,
Horns and heels;
When i'm done i'll take my coat and run

Hey, i want it (Want it),
Do you feel it? (Feel it),
Can you hear it? (Buildin')
Oh God

So take off your dress,
And all of the rest, but leave those horns and heels,
Horns and heels;
When i'm done i'll take my coat and run
