Track Name: Beach (Take off your Clothes)
Beach (take off your clothes)

I’ve got no car and I’ve got no job
You’ll still find me in the parking lot
Cos I’ve got no cash and nowhere to be
And the sun is out and the sun is free
I don’t want diamonds and I don't want pearls
You better watch out cos here come the girls
and the girls want fire and the girls want ice
and if your real lucky yeah they’ll treat you nice
I’ve got no dollars and I’ve got no sense
I'm gonna kick of my shoes, gonna jump the fence

It’s alright we’re going to the beach
So take off your clothes.
It’s alright we’re going in deep
So take off your clothes
Baby take off your clothes
We’re going under.

I’m a waste I’m a waste of space
I’ll wipe that look right off your face
Cos time is money and I’ve got time
So if you look closer I’m doing alright
We might all drop dead in a day
Then what was life but a waiting game?
Cos I’ve got you and you’ve got me
And we live in the city and it’s by the sea
Track Name: Animatronic
Animatronic

They say that love should come easily
But when you come and see me you just sit and watch the TV
And when we’re in bed you’re playing on your phone
I read your facebook status and it says you’re all alone
But you’re not I’m here, hello can you hear me?
Or are you too distracted by playing on the Wii?
I heard of uploading data into space but
You’re a mess cos you left behind no trace

My head is spinning, can’t decipher the static
Is it real or just a tactic? When you smile it’s automatic
Cos you try so hard to disguise that you’re vacant
I’m being patient but there’s no-one in the attic
Or the cellar or the bathroom or even in the kitchen
Yeah this house is stately but it’s far from bitchin'
There’s no-one home but the TV's on
I’m really fucking lonely I just wanna get it on.

You’re so real
And you taste like red wine
But there’s nothing going on in your mind
You’re so real and your soft like peaches
But there’s something out of my reach
You're animatronic
I think you’re animatronic

Machines and robots can be really fit
And you come equipped with all the necessary bits
But inside you’re the tin Man and the scare-crow too
Your brain is dead and your heart's not true
I don’t wanna be controversial when I say
Dorothy’s pathetic and her crew is the same.
A cowardly lion? Where’s the imagination?
So have a lobotomy and a heart transplantation
Track Name: You're not a Ninja
You’re not a Ninja

Sneaking up behind me
Practicing karate
you’re living in a fantasy
Put down the knife you’re freaking me out
I’m all up for make believe
But I know your true identity
TMNT wannabe
Take off the mask you’re freaking me out

You’re not a ninja
That’s what I’m telling ya

Warding off danger
Go go Power Ranger
Things keep getting stranger
Take off the mask you’re freaking me out
Hiding behind trash cans
working on your secret plans
You’ve never even seen Japan
Put down the knife your freaking me out
Track Name: Silence
Silence

I’m the one you’re with
us against the world
I’m the one who hears your silence

When we made the choice
to follow this road through
did you know what that would mean for you

Cos we’ve been here before

Are you scared to drown
to swallow beads of air
buried in a crown of coral

When did speech balloons
become dark clouds of thought
trembling in the fear of sadness

Cos we’ve been here before

I’m the one your with
even when it’s cold
I’m the one who feels your silence

we are suffocated
our hearts and lungs deflated

I’m the one you’re with
us against the world
I’m the one who hears your silence
Track Name: W.A.
W.A.

W.A. we’re on our way down under
W.A. we’re on our way to the summer

Pack up your bags we’re going over
I wanna see you in the sun
I wanna see you in the sun
I've got to go, I got a new set of rules
don’t want to be nobody else
just want to find myself

W.A. we’re on our way down under
W.A. we’re on our way to the summer
W.A. I’m gonna wright you a postcard
W.A. come on and do it on the west side

Leave your life behind and start all over again
I don’t care what they say,
I’m gonna do it my own way
This days all we got, can’t see no future
I’ll take each one as it comes
I’ll be the one having fun
Track Name: Backseat
Backseat

It’s not a love bite
It’s just another nights work
and I’ve been working all the time
cos you don’t like me
And I like you even less
I think we’re heading for a mess

If you're in the backseat
everything’s alright
I’m in control
I’m holding on tight
but if you want to take me
down in style
I know you will honey
and you’ll do it with a smile

We are magnets
I’ll draw you in and hold you tight
and then we’ll turn around and fight
cos you’ve got love in your heart
But you’ve got pain in your veins
We’ve got each other on the brains

Take your aim and shoot
when you’re angry you’re so cute
Track Name: Inner Queen
Inner Queen

Ten inch heels, sequinned dress
four foot wig, my man's the best
Beauty spot, gucci bag
I like my man in drag
I like the guys in disguise
false lashes on his eyes
run mascara when he cries
I like a boy in a dress
he’s my damsel in distress
and I’m his princess
he’s always dressed to impress
he’s the best

When life is mean free your queen
your inner drag queen

Sparkling eyes and perfect lips
manly chest and skinny hips
wardrobe in a laundry bag
I like my man in drag
red, black or blonde put your long wig on
you turn me on you turn me on
red, black or blonde put your long wig on
you turn me on you turn me on

When life is mean free your queen
your inner drag queen

Ooh ooh ooh
my queenie queen where have you been?
I need you, I want you
ooh sha la la
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
sugar, spice, my paradise
I need you, I want you
ooh la la

Commute in rush hour
a job with no power
surrounded by grey
you survive each day
answering the phone
can’t wait ’til you get home
pour a pink martini
put on your bikini
Track Name: Icarus
Icarus

I’m on my way down
to the seaside
and as i fall through the sky
the clouds pass before my eyes
And I think it’s time
time to die

And all the memories i’ve got
they’ve got nothing on this moment
and all the things that I’m not
disappeared instantly
cos I’ve been breathing
but this is living

My heart sings
as my wings begin to burn
the swell it brings
this is a freedom you can’t earn
down below
I hear my father cry
‘Why?
Icarus, you aimed to high.’

My mama told me:
‘Pride comes before a fall’
My daddy told me:
‘Boy, you can have it all’
will they remember me now dad?
as the boy who drowned

I will never sail the world
and I will never kiss a girl
I won’t make my father proud
and I will never sing out loud
cos I’m the boy who touched the sun
I’m the boy who touched the sun
I’m the boy who touched the sun
Track Name: Give me your Teeshirt
Give me your Teeshirt

I’ve got nothing to wear
I woke up in the bathroom
with beer dried in my hair
It’s time to take a chance
cos I’ve got nothing on
except my underpants

Give me your teeshirt
I’ll wear it all day
Give me your teeshirt
My pain will go away
Give me your teeshirt
So i can go home
without getting in trouble
Give me your teeshirt
Give me your teeshirt

It’s starting to get cold
next time I swear I’ll do
exactly as I’m told
You said you had a dream
you woke up with no clothes
it’s easier than it seems
take it from somebody who knows

I will wash and iron it
or give you one of my own
cos i would rather die in it
than go home with nothing on

Give me your socks and trainers
give me your jeans why don’t ya
give me your sweater
I will love you forever
won't you give me your sunnies
and your pikachu onesie
won't you give me your teeshirt

Give me your teeshirt
Track Name: So Awkward
So Awkward

I can’t take you anywhere,
cos you’ll make a scene
I can’t make you understand
we're on the same team
I can't take the blues away
cos you like feeling sad
but when I walk out the door
why do I feel so bad

Nobody else understands
why I’m working so hard
I’m working so hard
but you’re so awkward

I can’t take away the pain,
cos you’ll call me a thief
I can’t meet you half way,
cos you always cross the line
even when we agree,
you always change your mind
cos you’re so awkward
you’re so awkward
you’re so awkward
you’re so awkward

I cant get to you
You don’t know me
I can't get the truth
you don’t see me

You're my addiction
without you i cant breathe
there's so much friction
it’s like a disease
sometimes I wish I
could kick the habit
but i might as well
rip out my heart and stab it
Track Name: Leave you behind
Leave you behind

One, two, three, four days
since you’ve been in this phase
something’s up just spit it out
something’s up just spit it out
One two three four five six seven eight
counting hours but you’re always home late
sitting outside your door I wait
but you just won’t cooperate

oh oh oh oh baby open up and tell me how you feel
oh oh oh oh what is it that i’m not getting?
oh oh oh oh baby please
before I leave you behind
along with my mind

One two three four or five
this aint the first we survived
please give me a sign, or more
show me what we’re fighting for
Six, seven, eight, nine, ten
I don’t want to let you go again
are we going to hide these scars
behind a sea of dying stars?

How can you say ‘it’s alright’ you think it’s alright baby
How can you say ‘it’s all good’ you think it’s all good honey
How can you say ‘it’s alright’ you think it’s alright now

Why can’t you say how you feel?
Track Name: Diamond Rings
Diamond Rings

I must confess that I’ve been treated like a princess
and I’ve been dressing to impress because I like it
I like expensive things like diamond rings and hi-tops
but cash don’t touch me in the same way as your fingers

We want it we need it we just cant get enough
We want it we need it we just cant get enough
but I don’t want your money honey
I just want your love
no I’m not being funny honey
I just want your love

Come on now baby wont you show me what’s inside you
I’ll hold you close and you can tell me all your secrets
I like those special things and presents that you buy me
but theres nothing can touch the flame you light inside me

I don’t want a dime just want a minute of your time
Track Name: Who am i?
Who am i?

It’s taken me a while to find out
who I wanna be when I grow up
I seem to have lost my identity
I left it somewhere back at university

Now I don’t want to be a space man
but nobody seems to understand
I don’t want to waste my life away
but I don’t know how to make it pay

Tell me who am i?

I used to believe life was an eternity
now I’ve become so aware of my mortality
I think that this means we’re all growing up
but now the days are weeks and the weeks are years

Now I don’t want to be a space man
but nobody seems to understand
I don’t want to waste my life away
but I don’t know how to make it pay

Tell me who am i?
