Track Name: Grandaddy
don't forget
what your granddaddy said
he said hey little man
wont you listen well (but)

you got to make friends
along the way

but don't say
but don't say a word
remember what I tell ya

take a girl
across the islands
find a place
that you can
call your home
build a house
make some kids
still remember
to listen well

well my granddaddy said you better stay out of trouble
you better listen my friend or we'll be making it double
yeah 'cause life is so hard
so stay out of the gutter

I give you all the tools to help you in your struggle
Track Name: Seven
the seven (world) wonders got the seven year itch
Seb said to Misha come I'll make you rich
('cause I'm) renting the rooms at the Seven Hotel in Paris

we'll line up the fuses, check the timers and bores
surround ourselves with some gargantuan whores
and whistle the night away.

keep the gear in your jacket, keep them in awe
check out the suitcase ain't empty
keep an eye on the door
hold your gold in your coat until we can walk away.

so just hand me the stick and I'll poke out your eyes
who forgot that revolver strapped to her thigh
break down shake down on the way

Seven days quiet as quiet can be
the hotel is restless, (oh) when will they leave
but they're both lying dead on their personal road to Damascus.

it's a dumdumdumdum
it's a seven year itch
if you're holding too tight then
you'll never get rich.
Two pairs of broken hands they just can't shake (on) it
Track Name: White Breaking Waves
There is a place I don't like to be found
White breaking waves, no one around
I wanna tell you darling why oh why
I left everything when I was young
and my dreams were in tomorrow
I gazed, I turned
Something, something I learned

Cause I like to be alone at the sea
Hoping to find some peace in my mind
Don't know what I'd do if I did
Hoping to find some peace in my mind

My old man likes his bottle too much
What a mess that he made, and the women he touched
and there was no love to be found, and that's why I left
everything when I was young
and my dreams were in tomorrow
I gazed, I turned

Something, something I learned
Cause I like to be alone at the sea
Hoping to find some peace in my mind
Don't know what I'd do if I did
Hoping to find some peace in my mind
Track Name: Mr. Politician
Well I've been told about the things you say
Preachin' with the finger that blames
Saying what they wanna hear to boost your fame
playin with the fear of the masses,
promising them mountains of gold
Shameless ignorance will count as a blessing
Mr politician it's election day

Visiting a late night show
and someone tries to disagree
Just ignore him and use your personality
Saying that the're trying to hurt you
Victim of the values of old
Give me you're vote and i'll make 'em listen
Mr politician it's election day
Mr politician it's election day

And then you rise until the top this day
and you can buil an empire in your own way
changing al the laws change society
changing perceptions of reality

And then you break the promises of yesterday
screw the people that gave their faith
Cause you've got it made, the politicians game
Hoping that the people wil forget
All the lies that you have sold
When history repeats every four years
Mr politician it's election day
Mr politician it's election day
Track Name: Life Without Parole
ladies and gentlemen of the jury
so glad you could make it here today
to cast out your verdict on the accused
Michael G Clarke and Sharon N Keller

The reason
The unlawful mushy love stuff and fornication out of wedlock

and what say you?

Guilty

Life without parole
May god have mercy on your souls

Well the verdict has been cast
It's time to make amends
Let their crimes come to an end
In matrimony's cell

Life without parole
May god have mercy on your souls
Track Name: The Long Road
As I long for the time
I haven't thought of lately well
turn out to be alright in my way
We didn't know that today
would come soon as we said
our last real goodbye

Factory lanes and playgrounds of steel
Ageing trees break through concrete
I didn't know we were welcome on this side of this town
But I know I'll walk the long road
Yeah I know I'll walk the long road

People will come, people will go
Good or bad I wouldn't know
But I remember them all with a smile

Factory lanes and playgrounds of steel
Ageing trees break through concrete
I didn't know we were welcome on this side of this town
But I know I'll walk the long road home
But I know I'll walk the long road home
Track Name: Club Seal
Well if you go wack a seal
Hit him real good
Hit him on the back
With a great big piece of wood
Well if you go wack a seal
Hit him real good
Hit him on the back
And wear his coat for good.

(verse 1)

I had a friend, a bloke called Jed
A bear of a man with a swollen head
Who loved to swing a club and hit home runs
He used to swing a 4 by 2
But found out that just wouldn't do
When it came to killing little pups.

(He said)
Don't shoot 'em 'cause it leaves a hole
Club 'em that's more rock and roll
Plus it's up and personal....not quick
Pick the young ones they're all white
Spread their brains across the ice
and together we'll become fat stinking rich

Sneak up behind them, they can't hear
Jed said "hey They've got no ears",
just two tiny holes aside their head
Swing hard and follow through
The cracking sound just means you're through
But that doesn't guarantee ya that they're dead

You see the first crack leaves him in shock
And his eyes fills up with bloodied snot
He wonder if his mommy's coming back
See the first hit doesn't do too much
It's the second that's the lovin' touch
A third one just makes everything go black

get that fur off, cut 'em quick
We're gonna slit that bitch from arse to tit.
Just so some cunt keeps a little warm
Some leathery whore will pay big bucks
To cover herself and not give a fuck that
Some baby seal just bought the farm

I looked for the club where the seals go dancing
looking for a little romancing,
put on my orca suit and cruised the bar
But the barman said there's no one here
I thought about my friend Jed the bear,
And figured we may have gone too far

yiiiihaaaaa

here we go!
