Track Name: Nuke
Before you try to criticise someone
Try to understand where they're coming from
Before you make a fool of yourself
Take a step back, take a look at yourself x2

What are hoping to achieve?
Make me fall down to my knees?
Make me cry out in pain?
Well I won't do that, oh what a shame

I'm not gonna be just like you
I'm not gonna do what you tell me to
I'm gonna be my own free man
I won't change for you, can't you understand?

Before you try to criticise someone
Try to understand where they're coming from
Before you make a fool of yourself
Take a step back, take a look at yourself x4
Track Name: Stand Up, My Friends
They poison our minds and steal our thoughts,
We are theirs and there's nought we can do
So sit back, relax, pull up a seat
We'll just have to sit this thing through

Fight for your rights, stand up my friends
You gotta help yourself to be free
Fight for you rights, make oppression end
And claim your own liberty

Laissez faire and graces and airs,
And thinking you're above it all
Gets you nowhere - we all stand as one
And together we stay or we fall

Fight for your rights, stand up my friends
You gotta help yourself to be free
Fight for you rights, make oppression end
And claim your own liberty x2
Track Name: Interior Semiotics
All these crowds of hipsters are just too entertaining
With their badly-composed faux-polaroid daydreams
When your efforts are dull and ideas cliché
Art school aspirations couldn't be further away

When your cry for help's just a Facebook post
And with those spelling mistakes it reads more like a bad joke
You've a superficial boyfriend, and you're afraid to admit it
But you only feel close to him when you're touching his...
Track Name: You Got The Love (Candi Staton cover)
Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air
God knows, I can count on you
Sometimes I feel like saying "Lord, I just don't care"
You've got the love I need to see me through

Sometimes I feel the water's just too rough
And things go wrong, no matter what I do
Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air
But you've got the love I need to see me through

You've got the love
You've got the love, oh
You've got the love

You've got the love
You've got the love
Oh you...
Track Name: Barbarism Begins At Home (The Smiths cover)
Unruly boys, who will not grow up must be taken in hand
And unruly girls, who will not settle down, they must be taken in hand

A crack on the head, is what you get for not asking
And a crack on the head, is what you get for asking

Unruly boys, who will not grow up must be taken in hand
And unruly girls, who will not settle down, they must be taken in hand

A crack on the head, is what you get for not asking
And a crack on the head, is what you get for asking

And a crack on the head, is what you get for not asking
And a crack on the head, is what you get for asking
A crack on the head, is what you must get, why? Because of who you are
A crack on the head, is what you will get, why? Because of what you are
A crack on the head, because of, the things you said
Things you said, the things you did

Oh, unruly girls, who will not grow, must be taken in hand
Unruly boys, who will not grow, must be taken in hand

La la la la, la la la, ohhh
Ohh, ohh
La la la la, la la la, ohhh
Ohh, ohh
Track Name: Girls And Boys (Blur cover)
Streets like a jungle,
So call the police
Following the herds down to Greece,
On holiday
Love in the 90's
Is paranoid
On sunny beaches
Take your chances,

Looking for

Girls who want boys
Who like boys to be girls
Who do girls like their boys
Who do boys like their girls
Always should be someone,
You really love

Avoiding all work
Cause "there's none available"
Just like battery thinkers
Count your thoughts, on
ONE TWO THREE FOUR!
Five fingers!
Nothing is wasted,
Only reproduced
You get nasty blisters
"Du bist sehr schön"
But we haven't been introduced

Girls who want boys
Who like boys to be girls
Who do girls like their boys
Who do boys like their girls
Always should be someone,
You really love x2

Aah ah aah ah ah aah
Ahh ah aah ah aah

Looking for

Girls who want boys
Who like boys to be girls
Who do girls like their boys
Who do boys like their girls
Always should be someone,
You really love x4

Aah ah aah ah ah aah
Ahh ah aah ah aah x2
Track Name: Launchpad McQuack (Sex Bob-Omb cover)
*We are Sex Bob-Omb. One two three four*

I, can't be sure
But I think I heard you, crawl through the door
You, didn't say a word
And I think you tried to go to bed but instead, you went to floor

You'd been out partying with the other boys again,
Telling them "No, we are only friends"
Making out and making noise

Oh stop pretending, that this isn't really ending
And I will stop resenting you, when you stop resenting me,
Oh oh oh!

I, waited up late
Maybe, a little bit too late
Till you, you finally came in
Where do I end, and where do you begin?

You'd been out drinking with guys I've never met
Drinking beer and smoking cigarettes
Killing brain cells and killing me

Oh stop pretending, that this isn't really ending
And I will stop resenting you, when you stop resenting me,
Why don't you stop pretending, that this game is never ending,
And I will stop resenting you, when you stop resenting
Stop resenting
Stop resenting me
Track Name: I'm A Believer (The Monkees cover)
I thought love was only true in fairy tales
Meant for someone else but not for me

Oh love was out to get me
That's the way it seemed
Disappointment haunted all my dreams

And then I saw her face
Now I'm a believer
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
I'm in love,
I'm a believer, I couldn't leave her if I tried

I thought love was more or less a given thing
It seemed the more I gave, the less I got
Oh what's the use in trying? All you get is pain
When I needed sunshine I got rain

And then I saw her face
Now I'm a believer
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
I'm in love,
I'm a believer, I couldn't leave her if I tried

And then I saw her face
Now I'm a believer
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
Said I'm a believerbelieverbelieverbeliever, oh I'm a believer
Said I'm a believerbelieverbelieverbeliever, oh I'm a believer
Oh I'm a believer
Oh I'm a believer
Said I'm a believer
Oh I'm a believer
Said I'm a believer
Track Name: Sheila (Jamie T cover)
Sheila goes out with her mate Stella
And gets poured all over her fella
Cause she says "Man he ain't no better,
Than the next man kicking up a fuss"
Drunk, she stumbles down by the river
Screams, calling London
None of us heard her coming,
I guess the carpet weren't rolled out

Her lingo went from the Cockney to the Gringo
And any time she sing a song the other girls they sing along
And tell all the fellas the lady is single
It's a fickle way to tickle on my young man's tipple
She's out there doing what she like, any day, more like the night
She drowned drunk sorrows that she stole, bought, borrowed
She didn't like thugs, but at the same time she understood,
That fellas will be fellas till the end of time

And Jack had a gang that he called The Many Grams
He was known as Smack Jack, the Cracker Man
Life dealt him some shit hands,
But the boys got them back now
And Jay went the same way as Mickey and Dan, dependent men upon heroin
And man Lisa had a baby with Sam,
And now Jack's on his own man
So well done Jack, glug down that cider
You're right, "She's a slut" and you "never fucking liked her"
Not like what, he stopped so shocked,
Cause it turns out the last dance killed the pied piper
Tough little big man, friends with your daughters
Only cause they drive him to pick up all his quarters
A brawler, lager lout brawler, crawl on the floor
Think they're free but they ain't near the border
Too young, gunned down by your hellfire corner,
Always did a favour but never took an order
Behave young scallywag, a fine young gal I had
Gladragged up but only ever getting fag hags
Hung on his shoulder, cheap price shop tag
Slag better understand he came for the glamour
Oh this sounds original, superficial the issue
For one dear Jack, thirty-five doppelgangers

Sheila goes out with her mate Stella
And gets poured all over her fella
Cause she says "Man he ain't no better,
Than the next man kicking up a fuss"
Drunk, she stumbles down by the river
Screams, calling London
None of us heard her coming,
I guess the carpet weren't rolled out

Well I've just got one more story about the girl Georgina,
I've never seen a worse clean young mess
Under stress at best, but she's pleased to see you
With love, God bless, we lay her body to rest
Now it all dear started with daddy's alcoholic,
Lightweight and drinking down and numbing his brain
And the doctor said he couldn't get the heart dear started
Now beat up, drugged up she's feeling the strain
She says "I'm in a rut, what the fuck am I supposed to do?"
Suck it out, start start keep running through
True, but you try it ain't easy to do,
She's been buckle-belt beaten from the fight like a brat
Dunno where she's going, but she knows where she's at,
So Georgie, it's time to chain-react
But the truth is you know she'll probably fall back,
Tears stream down her face, she scream away
"When I fall, no-one catch me
I'm so lonely, I'll overdose slowly
Get scared, I'll scream and shout"
But you know it won't matter she'll be passing out

I said giggidybiggedyup just another day
Another sad story this tradegy
Paramedics announced death at 10:30
Rip it up, kick it, to split up the views

Sheila goes out with her mate Stella
And gets poured all over her fella
Cause she says "Man he ain't no better,
Than the next man kicking up a fuss"
Drunk, she stumbles down by the river
Screams, calling London
None of us heard her coming,
I guess the carpet weren't rolled
Sheila goes out with her mate Stella
And gets poured all over her fella
Cause she says "Man he ain't no better,
Than the next man kicking up a fuss"
Drunk, she stumbles down by the river
Screams, calling London
None of us heard her coming,
I guess the carpet weren't rolled out
