Track Name: Romantic Twit
I like your hair colour
You shine like no other
Heads turn when you walk in the room

I want to hold you
Discover the whole you
Sing songs to you looking in your eyes

I think it's romantic
But you think I'm a right twit
Trying everything I can to make you mine

I think it's romantic
But you think I'm a right twit
Trying everything I can to make you mine

(repeat)

Track Name: Tribes R Us
They segregate they categorise
controlling you under the guise
of loyalty misplaced and unwise
it's time to open your eyes

Divide us up
tribes are us
divide, make a cut
cos' tribes are us

Divide us up
tribes are us
divide, make a cut
cos' tribes are us

Are you an ABC1
there's a label for everyone
a socio-economic divide
defining what you should like

Divide us up
tribes are us
divide, make a cut
cos' tribes are us

Your borders are not what they seem
protecting you from the stream
of people all foreign and strange
you're afraid of difference and change

Divide us up
tribes are us
divide, make a cut
cos' tribes are us

ohhh tribes are us
ohhh tribes are us
ohhh tribes are us
ohhh tribes are us
Track Name: Black Cat Blues
A song about depression but sounds like background music from a Western movie.
lyrics
There's a black cat walkin' across the floor
and death comes knockin' at my door
there's nowhere to run there's nowhere to hide
it's clear my life is on a downward slide

Black cat walkin'
death comes knockin'
there's no use talking
it's time to go

There's a black cat stalking my deepest thoughts
ready to pounce on my many flaws
I can't be sure I'll do the right thing
all I know is I'm not goin' to win

Black cat walkin'
death comes knockin'
there's no use talking
it's time to go

Black cat walkin'
death comes knockin'
there's no use talking
it's time to go

There's a black cat walkin'
Black cat walkin'...
Track Name: Current Mood
I'm having an emotional flat-line
keeping out of everybody's way
lounging on the sofa
feeling like forever and a day

if I start to enjoy it
darkness punches through the grey
reminds me I'm no good
and keeps me keeping away

in my current mood
in my current mood
in my current mood
in my current mood

I'm lacking in concentration
I never found that before
was easy to be creative
don't do much of that any more

my brain still has ideas
artistic thoughts fill my head
but my emotional flat-line
got me feeling like the walking dead

in my current mood
in my current mood
in my current mood
in my current mood
Track Name: Falling
Now I don't know how I got here
never understood my fear
don't care if I live or die
as long as I get to say goodbye

Well I don't wanna leave you
still got things I want to do
but I am never satisfied
I doubt myself on the inside

I'm falling
falling
I'm falling
falling

Yes I've had it easy
always been too needy
tried to do the best I could
but most things I misunderstood

When I go do not despair
for I will always be there
in your head and in your heart
in your life I'm glad I played a little part


I'm falling
falling
I'm falling
falling

I'm falling
falling
I'm falling
falling

I'm falling
I'm falling
I'm falling
I'm falling
