Track Name: Another World
We say no to the status quo
they can't tell us what to do
don't wanna be them wanna be us
figured that out being stuck in school

can't keep up or keep our mouths shut
today's trends are just not cool
watch them come watch them go
watch them change to something new

We say no to the status quo
they can't tell us what to do
don't wanna be them wanna be us
figured that out being stuck in school

It's another world x 4

It's another world
much like our own
it's not the one that we call home
it's another world
on another plane
we watch it change we stay the same

can't keep up or keep our mouths shut
today's trends are just not cool
watch them come watch them go
watch them change to something new

It's another world x 3

It's another world
much like our own
it's not the one that we call home
it's another world
on another plane
we watch it change we stay the same
Track Name: Spinnin' Wheels
Sometimes when I'm throwing up
I think I should start growing up
get smart re start
avoid the things that slow me up

I've worked hard I've been around
the things I've got seem to weigh me down
more than enough so much stuff
that won't matter when I'm in the ground

you work so hard for a place to stay
then all you want is to get away
same all song we all seem to play
spinning wheels but never getting away

burns like radiation
can't take no vacation
we all mix a quick fix
choose our medications

we're so used to losing
being used and using
shit faced straight laced
whatever road you're choosing

work so hard for a place to stay
then all you want is to get away
same all song we all seem to play
spinning wheels but nothing seems to change

Sometimes when I'm throwing up
I think I should start growing up
get smart re start
avoid the things that slow me up

I've worked hard I've been around
the things I've got seem to weigh me down
more than enough so much stuff
that won't matter when I'm in the ground

you work so hard for a place to stay
then all you want is to get away
same all song we all seem to play
spinning wheels but never getting away

you work so hard for a place to stay
then all you want is to get away
same all song we all seem to play
spinning wheels but never getting away
Track Name: Issues
Funny things you'll find
swimming in your mind
when you take the time
for a look inside

it's not by choice
but this voice
won't let you be
it's just a thought
something you bought
with no guarantee

Like a magazine
you don't want to read
it tells you what you need
without a filter screen

there is nowhere
under it's glare
you want to be
there is no way
no one can say
what the next thing will be

are you listening
to the crazy things
that are leaking in
screaming from within
are you listening
to the crazy things
that are leaking in
screaming from within
Track Name: Get Up And Groan
Stranded with nothing to prove
everybody's gotta make their move
every day is a bridge you gotta cross
every win is someone else's loss

and the walls of the stalls are closing in
the grind on your mind ain't giving in
nature's cruel it will run it's course
when every day's the cart and your the horse

groaning in the morning
groaning in the evening
groaning when you get home
groaning when your leaving
groaning in the day time
groaning in the night
moaning and a groaning
trying to get it right

No choice but to run the race
so much dirt kicked up in your face
freedom isn't free make no mistake
your'e tied to the ride and there's no escape

groaning in the morning
groaning in the evening
groaning when you get home
groaning when your leaving
groaning in the day time
groaning in the night
moaning and a groaning
trying to get it right
Track Name: Jerk At Work
Busted having a jerk at work

here's a story about a man
an incident within the can
he was giving himself a hand
now they call him sticky Stan

sat down he was ready to rock
but there was something he forgot to lock
and then someone forgot to knock
and a scream was heard through the office block

busted having a jerk at work x 4

Stan thought he was pretty shady
but he didn't expect the cleaning lady
old sticky Stan Mcgravy
recruiting semen for the porcelain navy

turned out to be quite a joke
a near heart attack instead of a stroke
a cautionary tale for horny blokes
and a few good laughs for the office folks

busted having a jerk at work x 4

Poor old sticky Stan
was giving himself a hand
poor old sticky Stan
got busted in the can
the cleaning lady ran
and the shit hit the fan

he was
Busted having a jerk at work
Track Name: Stand Up Stand Out
Living hard and living fast
they like to tell you it won't last
they will never be like you
they don't like anything you do

They tell you that you'll never win
because you really don't fit in
everywhere you go you live in sin
if it's somewhere that they've never been

Stand Up Stand Out x 2

They'll laugh about you in the halls
they'll write about you on the walls
because they haven't got the balls
to make their own fucking calls
Track Name: Prairie Dog Blues
He's got a case of the prairie dog blues
trapped in a race that he better not lose
he's under pressure and he can't unwind
a close encounter of the turd kind

walk don't run hang in there son
prairie dog blues
fight the force stay the course
prairie dog blues

walking a tight rope inch by inch
stopped at a red light buttocks in a clinch
every block seems to stretch for miles
he'll make it home if fortune smiles

he's touching cloth he cant turn off
the prairie dog blues
stomach pains stubborn stains
prairie dog blues
he's got to go that's for sure
prairie dog blues
walk don't run it's no fun
prairie dog blues

prairie dog blues x 3
Track Name: Marked Up
It doesn't matter not to him
long as the money keeps rolling in
your'e there he doesn't care
doesn't get it he's just too square

he's up front a total cunt
all that you got is all that he wants
taking all that's yours
money in the bank money for whores

he knows that it's all just a bit too much
harassment is the way that he keeps in touch
not as easy for you as it is for him
he's holding the deck
and your hand is looking pretty grim

It doesn't matter not to him
long as the money keeps rolling in
your'e there he doesn't care
doesn't get it he's just too square

he's up front a total cunt
all that you got is all that he wants
taking all that's yours
money in the bank money for whores

he knows that it's all just a bit too much
harassment is the way that he keeps in touch
not as easy for you as it is for him
he's holding the deck
and your hand is looking pretty grim
Track Name: Pressure's On
Pressure's on you're in a crunch
and it sucks it sucks a bunch
more than a feeling more than a hunch
they're out there waiting to eat you for lunch

no time to sweat it you're gonna get it
right now
no time to sweat it you're gonna get it

It was on for them in the past
you pushed them hard you pushed them them fast
thought you had control but it didn't last
they're still kicking kicking your ass

no time to sweat it you're gonna get it
right now
no time to sweat it you're gonna get it

The Pressures on x 6
Track Name: Pickle In Your Butt
Everybody knows you've got a pickle in your butt
a pickle in your butt a pickle in your butt
Everybody knows you've got a pickle in your butt
a pickle in your butt a pickle in your butt

Walking around with the green in the brown - hey

Everybody knows you've got a pickle in your butt
a pickle in your butt a pickle in your butt
Everybody knows you've got a pickle in your butt
a pickle in your butt a pickle in your butt

It's winding you up it's wearing you down
it's making you ill what a shitty dill - hey

Pickle in your x 4
butt
hole
Track Name: Something For Nothing
Ever found something
and thought it was nothing
but now it means so much more?
it keeps you from crying
about living and dying
and gets your ass out the door

must have found something
something for nothing
something worth living for
cause nothing but something
could just be the one thing
to help you find something more

something for nothing
that's what we need
something for nothing
satisfaction guaranteed
Track Name: No Return
You crossed the line
now face the facts
you burned a bridge
you can't go back
you thought you had
something to prove
you made your choice
you made your move

There's no return x 3
What did you learn

You played the game
you called the shot
there's nothing left
a vacant lot
you thought you had
nothing to lose
I wouldn't want to be
standing in your shoes

There's no return x 3
What did you learn

gone - you can't get it back
wrong - wrong side of the tracks
lost - in a new reality
tossed - into uncertainty

There's no return x 3
What did you learn
