Track Name: Just A Ride
Something went wrong at the diamond mine
You didn’t see it coming but I think you’ll be fine
We’ll all be better off if you give it some time
It wont take to long to find a common ground
 
Start at the beginning and you’ll be alright
One step at a time try not to get uptight
This is the way that it has always been
Our lives are guided by a hand unseen
 
This is just a ride
A choice between two eyes
 
When you’re on the Titanic why not go to the bar?
The Earth revolves around a dying star
Life is short and life is long
It all depends on where you judge it from
 
Aliens, zombies, movie stars
We’re all dust in the end no matter who you are
This is the way that is has always been
We’re tiny cogs in the infite machine
 
The eyes of love and the eyes of fear
There’s no need to worry because nothing is real
 
Its just a ride remember
Track Name: The Good Wife
I’ll play you favourite song
The one about the rainbows from the first E.P
I know you  like to hear it when your falling asleep
When you fall asleep
 
Close your eyes
Its just the wind blowing the leaves around
I know your mind wonders when you hear that sound
But its just the leaves outside
 
I’ll download your TV show
It doesn’t come out until Monday you know
Your so impatient for the next episode
But you gotta let it go
 
Go to sleep
Im going to play some music then I’ll be right in
When the morning comes I’ll be by your side
I’ll be by your side
Track Name: Rubbish Radio
Everyone will avert their eyes
The revolution will be televised
On closed circuit cameras
So no one even notices
The population is anaesthetized
Too scared to go outside
Chewing paracetamol
Still feeling pretty miserable

Sometimes it feels like we’re going off the rails
Like a rabid dog that’s chewing on it’s tail
Sometimes it feels like everything’s for sale
And it makes me wonder… Where do we go from here?

Everybody in their best disguise
Nobody wonders if we’re hypnotized
If there’s magicians in the theatre
Our leaders are all criminals
Believing they’re invisible
Try not to go insane

Sometimes it feels like we’re running out of time
Burn a candle to light the way
But everyone is blind
Sometimes I fear for the future of mankind
And its makes me wonder.. Where do we go from here?

Too tired to realize
They keep you hungry for another prize
And dancing to the radio
That rubbish on the radio
That music it’s got no soul
The DJs talking to you like you’re three
years old
When you listen to the radio
That rubbish on the radio

Sometimes it feels we’re all losing our mind
Living life at such a pace
that we’ve all been left behind
Sometimes it feels we’re evolving in rewind
And it makes me wonder…Where do we go from here?
Track Name: You Can Burn All The Flowers (You Can't Stop The Spring)
We live in dangerous times
Self awareness of the digital mind
Will it turn on it's creator
Or will it be our saviour
Upload ourselves and travel into space

You can burn all of the flowers
But you can’t stop the spring

We live in dangerous times
A generation with its secrets in the cloud
And I’m glad I’m a little older
And I got to grow up slow
BMX and skateboards and no data stored on Facebook
A Playboy magazine hidden in the dirt down by the trees
And no one stopped to wonder about the exponential
nature of technology

You can burn all of the flowers
But you can’t stop the spring
Burn all the flowers
You can't stop the spring
Track Name: It's A Thing Called Supply And Demand
Mama why they throwing out food?
Mama why they throwing out food?
It’s a thing called supply and demand
If there’s too much supply then the price goes down

Mama why they throwing out food?
Mama why they throwing out food?
The shareholders need their shares to go up
That’s just the rules of the game and they don’t think about us

Mama why they throwing out food?
Mama why they throwing out food?

Im just a child don’t understand economics
But whatever happened to being good to one another?
I’m just a child but I work seven days a week
But through virtue of my birthplace I aint got nothing to eat

Mama why they throwing out food?
Mama why they throwing out food?
It’s a thing called the use by date
And if the use by date expires then the food goes bad

Mama how can food be bad?
Mama how can food be bad?
If the produce doesn’t look quite right
Then the shops cannot sell it so they throw it out

Mama why they throwing out food?
Mama why they throwing out food?

Im just a child don’t understand economics
But whatever happened to being good to one another?
I’m just a child but I work seven days a week
But through virtue of my birthplace I aint got nothing to eat
Track Name: Medicine
Take your medicine
Take your medicine
Take your medicine
Empty your pockets
 
Go to bed again
Go to bed again
Go to bed again
Empty your pockets
 
You can trade all your time
For silver and gold
And they’ll let you get ahead
If you do what your told
 
Take your medicine
Take your medicine
Take your medicine
Empty your pockets
 
Go to bed again
Go to bed again
Go to bed again
Empty your pockets
 
You can trade all your time
For silver and gold
And they’ll let you get ahead
If you do what your told
 
Trade all your time
For silver and gold
And they’ll let you get ahead
If you do what your told
But there’s a fine line
Between freezing and cold
And you might not notice
Till you’re chilled to the bone
 
I got my medicine everything’s all right.
