Track Name: Intervention
Get me out, Give me a chance, I need to get me out
Give me a pass I need to get me out, given a chance,
I need to get me out, give me a chance
And now I need to learn, I’ve made a mistake and now I need to learn I’ll do what you say, I’m now a different man, this time it’s for real, I said I need to learn, I’ll do as you ask
It’s time to give it up, give me a chance I said I’ll cut it out, I’ve had it with this, I’ve got to clean it up,
The time is for change, I need to waken up, before it’s too late

Pre chorus :
Here come the mourners, here come the blood fish
Here come the cleaners here comes the homebrew
Here come the stewards


EXIT! (give me a choice I need an)
Track Name: Meathoney
Hanging from a nail, yeah it’s gonna go wrong, everybody take to the fields
Grow yourself corn and gorge till the dawn, then shoot some shit on the breeze

Look at me I swing from the trees and no-one rules my roost
Hard as leather through the weather, here I stand accused

Let’s roll the dice with the clockwork mice, there’s lessons to be learned
Hand in hand we walk through sand, and time is something earned

Look at me I stand in the sea and nothing steals my wave
Quick as silver, ride the river, all souls can be saved

Goodnight, sweet darling, I’ll hail a penny farthing
Fetch me, my jacket, let’s trip the light fantastic
Hold on, I’m kidding, I wouldn’t waste that shilling
Your face, in stitches, just like the witches
Track Name: Chippie
I’ve been looking around trying to find a way,
Gotta find a reason to change into a new groove
This has gone on too long, I’m ready for a change
Open up the hole, I’m gonna bleed a big bruise

If you get my meaning, well here’s to you

Everybody says I’ve got a chippie,
Lurking in the shadows and hissing at the masses
I was like you once, without addiction
All you need to do is get into the practice

I’m gonna save it for later!
When we ask for the waiter!
Take your time with the order!
Here’s a tip for the future!
Track Name: Liquorice
Got the shakes and the sweat is pouring, it’s just another morning, I’ll drag myself from one hell to the rear
Red eyes don’t look at me, my guilt is plain to see
Another day of running from the fear

While the kids grow up I’ll tell no lies
You’re gonna turn into what you despise
All downhill from here, so crack another beer
There’s no time for disguise!

Yeah! Yeah!

I feel so disgusting, what the hell is in my body
This once was pure but now I’m not so sure
Adrenalin you died in battle, fighting with the bovine cattle
When will you learn to guard against the fool

When the kids grow up I might come clean
Take advice from the horror that I’ve seen
It’s no picnic, and now I’m feeling sick
Some things are meant to be
Track Name: Priory
And so the saying goes, that good things come from patience
Tomorrow is a day without horizon
Walking toward the new sun rising

Tonight it’s gonna hurt, it’s unfair, it’s a torture
One foot goes in front of the other
Distance travelled ends up further

I’ll try to work it out, on my own, through the evening
Encouraged by a new dawn waking slowly
The hard road’s long and often lonely

All it means to me, is the chance, to start over
Maybe this time I’ll beat the bastard
Maybe this time I’ll heal faster
Track Name: JSA
Good luck you’re gonna need it,
Someday you won’t believe it,
Another form to fill out
Another stage to walk out

A pittance paid fortnightly
A giro paid directly
Your history in writing
Your hands are tied

Got to get you onto the streets

Please Sir I’ve paid my credits
My children need a medic
I need some crisis funding
A man can’t get by on nothing

Another Monday morning
Today you withdraw nothing
Oh well a shrapnel payment
A shameful haul
Track Name: Imago
Think about all of the different things that you want to be
Looking out over the landscape (or rainbow) there, where you used to dream
Come along, time is a precious thing, that you should protect
Show the world, you’re taking a stand, and that’s nothing to regret

Wake me up from the middle of my slumber
I can’t fix all the problems from my bed
Anytime I don’t remember details
You’ll find them hidden in the words I said

All along, get on the beaten track, there’s a route to ride
I believe, given a second chance, I can make it right
Me and you, sharing the cost, so we make it through the night
Nevermind, take me again, I’m yours every single time

There it goes again.
Track Name: The Heebie Jeebies
I’ve got the fusion warming up the movement
I’ve got detention holding back recruitment
I’ve got chills they’re spilling on the pavement
I’ve got the sweats I’m suffering enslavement

My hands shake with the terror of the being
I’ve gone insane I’ve lost the faculty of reason
A quick fix is all I need to feel normal
The heebie jeebies make a man feel abnormal

It’s just one of these things, before you know it you’ve got a monkey on yer back and a worm in your soul.

Sweet nectar, honey drip delicious
My best friend, he’s wicked and malicious
Track Name: Sum Totality
Diving in the coral forget about your morals
You’re the kind of guy who can rest on his laurels
Heavy damage, heavy dining tonight

Sleeping with the snapper, forget about the laughter
Keep it going kid and one day you’ll be a martyr
Heavy damage, heavy dining tonight

Looking for the answer to silence all the dancers
Cut them all down with the poison backward glances
Heavy damage, heavy dining tonight

All results are the same (every single morning)
I’ve been driven insane (always without warning)
Can we step on the brakes (slow down for the market)
Now I’m riddled with debt (we take direct debit)


Can we call it even, I’m not the one for thieving
We can strike a deal, a different reason to believe in
Heavy damage, heavy dining tonight
Roll around the corner, another fallen mourner
Take a break friend, you can lean against my shoulder
Heavy damage, Heavy dining tonight
