Track Name: Breakdown
Breakdown

Don’t want to wait
Don’t want to sit down all day
But when it’s fate
I’m not in any hurry
I have a choice just like you have no money
When I’m away you think I’m acting funny

It’s like a breakdown for you
Just wait for the call but I don’t know how to fix it all
Breakdown for you
And will it go

What did I say to make you turn round on me?
I’ll take it back – just tell you that I’m sorry
Make up the truth like it is just a story
Though I’m no use – your words that flow straight through me

It’s like a breakdown for you
Just wait for the call but I don’t know how to fix it all
Breakdown for you
And will it go

It’s like a breakdown for you
Just wait for the call but I don’t know how to fix it all
Breakdown for you
And will it go
Track Name: Only For Yourself
Only For Yourself

Take a walk to clear your head
From hearing over what you said
Time would make you justify
And if only for yourself you question why

People tell you what to do
They have no right to bother you
And the take exception when you sigh
And if only for yourself you question why

And so you try to find a place to hide
And if only for yourself you question why

Going nowhere on your own
Never notice where you’re going
Expectations are too high
And if only for yourself you question why
And if only for yourself you question why
Track Name: Obvious
OBVIOUS


If you want to stay or go I don’t really mind
If you can’t decide today if you’ll be fine
But if your heart was aching I wouldn’t miss a thing
‘Cause you are in the grooves of the records that I spin


If I was a song I’d be too obvious
Like starting with a riff, ending in a double chorus
But if my heart was breaking would you feel a thing
Like the notes of songs I know I can’t really sing


If you want to go or stay I don’t really mind
If you can’t decide today if you’ll be fine
But if your heart was breaking you would hold the key
And maybe realise it’s you and it is me
Track Name: Figure It Out
Figure it out

Billy was a loser who needed money, never got what he deserved
Tried to sell his soul on ebay but the devil wouldn’t meet the reserve
Stumbles home at night after 15 whiskeys and chips with his doner pizza
Drops half the food in the gutter for the rats and the gulls to feed on


He’ll figure it out someday he’ll figure it out
He says he gonna win someday
He’s gonna fix it


Sometimes on the bus he’ll sit next to strangers even though there’s plenty seats
He spouts his opinions on politics, Prince William and Suarez Teeth
He points out the sights through the steamed up windows telling her what he’s done there
Then the stranger stands up and talks to him and says you know I don’t even care


He’ll figure it out someday he’ll figure it out
He says he gonna win someday
He’s gonna fix it
Track Name: Give It Back
Give It Back

As far as I could see all my friends and me
We’d all been done again though we never even wanted it
Some sunny afternoon still seeing last nights moon
Oh please don’t go away but it never listened anyway

Come on back me up
Don’t I deserve that much
You shout at me again
So I just give it back
I just give it back

Honey I’m too small to climb higher walls
I’d fall off and hit the ground with a crash crash crashing sound
The bus to Aberdeen takes me through those hills I see
To the town full of girlfriends but it’s coming to an end

Come on back me up
Don’t I deserve that much
You shout at me again
So I just give it back
I just give it back

Bright lampshade in the corner
And I’m tired of washing up
So I just pull the plug
Track Name: Good Vibes
Good Vibes

I've been getting those good vibrations
Good vibrations now that you're gone
Good vibrations those sounds from my heart
Flowing through my veins (repeat)

For all my mild elations this surely is the one
And though I talk a lot I know I can't be wrong
For all my weeks frustrations I've been so undone
You know I'll stand my ground even if I've none

I've been getting those good vibrations
Good vibrations now that you're gone
Good vibrations those sounds from my heart
Flowing through my veins (repeat)

You say my concentration is bound to let me down
I say that's not the reason it's living in this town
I'm going to make some changes I'm getting out tomorrow
Then I look into your eyes they seem to show no sorrow

Good vibrations good vibrations(this surely is the one)
Good vibrations good vibrations(I know I can't be wrong)
Good vibrations good vibrations(I'm getting out tomorrow)
Good vibrations good vibrations(They seem to show no sorrow)
Track Name: Crisps And Irn Bru
Crisps And Irn Bru

You eat salad at lunchtime,
everyday the same
You dream about chips and mars bars
But know you must stay thin

Cause skinny’s good that’s what they say
Your clothes don’t fit but that’s Ok
You don’t need crisps and irn bru
She don’t need him but he needs you

You’re at the gym every evening
Watch the calories burn
You think you’ve got a beer belly
Beneath your toned, flat tum

Cause skinny’s good that’s what they say
Your clothes don’t fit but that’s OK
You don’t need crisps and irn bru
She don’t need him but he needs you

Sometimes you walk slowly and then you run away before you think about things
Sometimes you ask questions but then you don’t listen,
be sure that you’re never in

And he hopes you are happy
Now you’re a size six
But he wants the old you back
But it’s too late to fix
Track Name: Dog And Cat
Dog and Cat

I just want to stand outside and girl I never want to hide
You just want to stay in doors
Promise me you’ll give me more
Tell me what you wanna do, tell me what you wanna do
I want you to

Don’t forget to ask me why all your dreams may reach the sky
Hang around for long enough
You’ll be strong and I’ll be tough
Tell me what you wanna do, tell me what you wanna do
I want you to

Well, lately I’ve discovered that you’re a dog and I’m a cat
That still doesn’t bother me
Cause you’re the one I wanna see
Tell me what you wanna do, tell me what you wanna do
I want you to
Track Name: Where I'm From
Where I’m From

My time is precious now, I’ve not got long
I’m nearer the finish line than from the front
And when I’m away, away, away from home
My thoughts take me back to where I’m from

Taking the easy way to get things done
Leaving the harder things to get some sun
It’s taken a while, a while, I know it’s wrong
But my thoughts take me back to where I’m from

Leaving the door ajar to get some air
Hoping the rain won’t come to leave me spare
I’m never alone, alone and I don’t care
But thoughts take me back to where…
Track Name: Open Door
Open Door

I know where it lies, I know where you’re heading for
Through the open door
Thinking of a time, when it comes just turn around
Speak what’s on your mind

The sun gets in your eyes
And blinds you from the lies
Tell me, I’m not sure
What you’re fighting for

Thinking I would change when I said I’d turn away
Knowing you would stay
If I had given up, didn’t try to understand
Tried to form a plan

The sun gets in your eyes
And blinds you from the lies
Tell me, I’m not sure
What you’re fighting for

The sun gets in your eyes
And blinds you from the lies
Tell me, I’m not sure
What you’re fighting for
Track Name: Can't Help It
Can’t Help It

Sometimes you get so down
but you never tell me
And sometimes when I’m around
It’s as if you’re trying not to see me
And you know this feeling’s not the one you really want
You say that it’s not your fault
Cause you can’t help it

I don’t mind your stories
Just try and keep them simple
I don’t care if you’ve got spots on your face
Or hair growing from your dimples
And you know this feeling’s not the one you really want
You say that it’s not your fault
Cause you can’t help it

It’s much too late you’re out of time
you’ve gone too far
A little hate may wear you out before you start

And you know this feeling’s not the one you really want
You say that it’s not your fault
Cause you can’t help it
Track Name: When The Summer Comes Around
When The Summer Comes Around

I spent years swapping spit with St. Lucifer singing the words to his blues
He says nobody love me or at least nobody says
In exultant rays of gratitude my once was lost was found
But I guess you had to be there when the summer comes around

I spent Lent spinning tales with St. Pol Pot telling the truth to his lies
He says nobody loves me or at least nobody tries
Saw that his halo wasn’t glowing and it wasn’t even round
But I guess you had to be there when the summer comes around

It’s all for kicks, it’s all for kicks

I spent Christmas in the sun with St. J Stalin juggling his pigs at his fez
He says nobody loves me or at least nobody says
And when the fun was drained from politics they red-painted the town
But I guess you had to be there when the summer comes around

Well I guess you had to be there when the summer comes around
