Track Name: Dreams
I wrote a song about the time your skin was turned inside out,
Didn't stop to wonder what the hell it was about,

No one cares about your dreams.

I'm sure it was wonderful, I'm sure it blew your mind,
But you're pausing and umming and awwing, I'm trying to be kind,

But no one cares about your dreams,
Do you know what I mean.

No one cares about your dreams.
Track Name: Still Metal
On a Sunday night, iron my shirt, my Dream Theatre tie,
I need to be in bed by 10,
On the road a 6, a breakfast mug in my Mercedes fist,
I got to meet some dicks by 9.

The bullet belt is gone, and the jacket's gone,
Still Metal,
Still Metal.

Drive by the skateboard shop,
I tats while they were in cots,
I reach down turn up the volume on my stereo, hear it!

The bullet belt is gone, and the jacket's gone,
Still Metal,
I'm Still Metal,
Mosh pit posers come and go, come and go
Still Metal,
We're Still Metal,

Mosh pit posers come and go,

Yeah, the bullet belt is gone, and the jacket's gone,
Still Metal,
We're Still Metal,
Mosh pit posers come and go, come and go
We're Still Metal,
We're Still Metal,
Track Name: Superbugs
The time is up doc, it's almost here,
You've been sitting back dishing out drugs now,
It's your biggest fear,
We're sick of coughing up and playing by you're rules,
If you looked at me as much as your watch you'd think so too!

Simple bugs are starting to evolve,
Super bugs are going to attack,

How much longer, can we dodge the flames,
And how much longer, can they dodge the blame,
A million in your pocket, a million in the ground,
This is Dark Ages shit that we're talking about,

Simple bugs are starting to evolve,
Super bugs are going to attack,
Simple bugs are learning to evolve,
Superbugs ATTACK!

I'm not ready to die.
I'm not ready to die.

Simple bugs are starting to evolve,
Super bugs are going to attack,
Simple bugs are learning to evolve,
Superbugs ATTACK!
Track Name: New Stuff
Take the new stuff from your shelf baby,
And put it into my arms,
The sun is here and it's warm outside yea,
Just what I need right now,
Yay yay yay yo dance with me baby o,
Dance through the plastic and dance through the paper,
From you shelf to my hands,
From my hands to my shelf.

NEW - Shiny new stuff
NEW - I want new stuff
NEW - Lovely new stuff
New Stuff, New Stuff, New Stuff, New Stuff.

I heard about a man who won a prize now,
A lifetime supply of love,
Oh no no no what could be worse baby,
We'd never have to shop again.

NEW - Shiny new stuff
NEW - I want new stuff
NEW - Lovely new stuff
New Stuff, New Stuff, New Stuff, New Stuff.
Track Name: Metal Memory
Just when you think it's getting better you are wrong,
Rules get made up as they go along,
It's the rich that own the media, the law (thanks Queensryche ;-)
Spit it out and watch it eaten my the poor,

You think the Church gives a shit about your rules,
"You can get fucked, try to tell us what to do",
"Here's a eulogy I tossed off over brunch",
"Heard a million times by the bastards in the room"
Come on people we can tell them what to do.

My metal memory is playing riffs on me,
I've been in war before,
My metal memory is playing riffs on me,
I've been in war before.

The club stays open while the robots apply,
Nothing changes and you wonder why.
I've been in war before.
Track Name: The Road
Cross the road,
Cross the road,
Now it's safe to cross the road.
Track Name: Stayin' In
Landlord falling off the long finger,
The rats have all packed and gone,
Next door where they can get dinner,
They know which side their bread us buttered on.

Looks like I'm staying in tonight.

Phone bill needs a payin',
And the car won't feed itself,
Hot water bottles in the TV room,
And nothing on the beer shelf,

Looks like I'm staying in tonight,
This could be the story of my life

Looks like I'm staying in tonight,
This could be the story of my life

Stealing wood from the forest,
Screening all my phone calls,
Sellotaping shut the petrol tank,
And glueing shut the windows,

Looks like I'm not going out tonight,
Looks like I'm stayin' in tonight,
Again.
Track Name: New Hendrix
As I lay in the bath and you played some blues,
Recorded on a dictaphone in '72,
And the one thing I realised as I lay pinning over you,
Is that I am no different from,
An old guy waiting on a brand new Hendrix tune.

A hot summers day, a day on the green,
There must be some more footage that I haven't seen,
And the one thing I realised as was searching on you tube,
Is that I am no different from,
An old guy waiting on a brand new Hendrix tune.

Well I'll never see a dinosaur,
And I'll never talk to you,
And I'll never take that photograph,
Of the things we'd yet to do,
And just like a loved one,
That has gone from us too soon,
Oh I am that old guy,
And I'm waiting on a brand new Hendrix tune.
Track Name: Hey You
Spring. It seems so nice,
It's getting warm and it's getting bright,
Then. If you're lucky,
You'll get to feel the summer's heat.

Hey!
I'm still here with you,
I guess that mean I love you, love you,
And Hey!
You're still here with me,
I guess that means you love me, love me.

We talked a lot and put it off,
Then we made some lunch,
The soup was good,
But now we know,
Soup is better tomorrow.

Hey!
I'm still here with you,
I guess that mean I love you, love you,
And Hey!
You're still here with me,
I guess that means you love me, love me.

HEY!
YOU!

Hey!
I'm still here with you,
I guess that mean I love you, love you,
And Hey!
You're still here with me,
I guess that means you love me, love me.

Pull me in,
Hold me tight,
Like I'm your secret lover.
Track Name: Cam Lovers
First gig in a while,
I need to practice hard,
I need to feel under pressure,
You know it worked a charm.

Cam lovers everywhere,
Wave your bits like you just don't care.

Not for me but "whatever",
Who am I to judge?
We're not really any different,
Don't want to practice alone.

Cam lovers everywhere,
Wave your dicks like you just don't care,
Cam lovers everywhere,
Waving dicks like they just don't care.

Cam lovers everywhere,
Wave your dicks like you just don't care,
Cam lovers everywhere,
They got no need for underwear,
Cam lovers everywhere,
Helping rockers to prepare,
Cam lovers everywhere,
Oh yea.
Track Name: Pressure City
Feels like I'm turning into a monster,
Veins are thick with poison slowing me down,
Feels like my guts are solidifying,
A cement ball baby cries inside,

Must be a lack of communication, (thanks Ratt :-)
From my body to my brain, my head and my mind,
My gas is considered a dangerous weapon,
Lethal to within a deadly mile,

In pressure city,
You can't drive around, you can't drive around,
In pressure city,
It's all around, it's all around,
In pressure city,
You can't drive around, you can't drive around,
In pressure city,
There's no way out, there's no way out.

Seeing stars,
I hear noises,
Help,
Help.
No more, no more, no more, no more

In pressure city,
You can't drive around, you can't drive around,
In pressure city,
It's all around, it's all around,
In pressure city,
You can't drive around, you can't drive around,
In pressure city,
Don't come in here, don't come in here,
In pressure city,
You can't drive around, you can't drive around,
In pressure city,
There's no way out, there's no way out,
In pressure city,
You can't drive around, you can't drive around,
In pressure city,
Don't come in here, don't come in here.
