Track Name: Outlaw
Get me out of this place
Anywhere you wanna go
Pack me in a suitcase
And fly me to Mexico
Running from the rat race
On a long holiday
Head into the heatwave

You’ve got it, you’ve got it
You’ve got it for sure
But you won’t have for long
Unless it’s nailed to the floor
They’re gunning, they’re gunning
They’re gunning for you
Cos the rules don’t apply
When you’re outside the law

Get me out of this place
Anywhere you wanna go
Pack me in a suitcase
And fly me to Mexico
Running from the rat race
On a long holiday
Head into the heatwave

If this world wasn’t so disjointed
I could see I could stay with you there
But the faces look so disappointed
Oh the day will not come, when I don’t have to run

You’ve got it, you’ve got it
You’ve got it for sure
But you won’t have for long
Unless it’s nailed to the floor
They’re gunning, they’re gunning
They’re gunning for you
Cos the rules don’t apply
When you’re outside the law

Get me out of this place
Anywhere you wanna go
Pack me in a suitcase
And fly me to Mexico
Running from the rat race
On a long holiday
Head into the heatwave
Track Name: Eating With Chopstick

Eating with chopstick makes me feel so good
Eating with chopstick makes me feel alright yeah

Eating with chopstick makes me feel so good
Eating with chopstick makes me feel alright yeah
Eating with chopstick makes me feel so good
Eating with chopstick makes me feel alright yeah
Track Name: You Won't Find A Girlfriend On The Dancefloor
Hot seat, the sweat is all around you (moving bodies)
Can’t breathe, the atmosphere is suffocating (all the while)
They seek, looking for the next arrival
But you can’t do it, no.
No, no, no.

Hot feet, treading like true survivors (straight to it)
On heat, looking for a small advantage (all the while)
You peek, Feeling like the poor relation
Cos you can’t do it, no.
No, no, no.

Oh I know you won’t find a girlfriend on the dancefloor
You can’t do it, can’t do it, no.
But every Friday night that’s what you are here for
And you can’t do it, can’t do it, no.

No more
No more
No more

Those kids, they can’t question your commitment (can’t do it)
Your hope, stamina and resilience (which undermine)
Good sense, for all your best intentions….
You can’t do it, no
No, no, no.

Oh I know you won’t find a girlfriend on the dancefloor
You can’t do it, can’t do it, no.
But every Friday night that’s what you are here for
And you can’t do it, can’t do it, no.

No more
No more
No more

Oh I know you won’t find a girlfriend on the dancefloor
You can’t do it, can’t do it, no.
But every Friday night that’s what you are here for
And you can’t do it, can’t do it, no.

No more
No more
No more

Oh I know you won’t find your girl on the dancefloor
Track Name: Bowler Hat
Instrumental
Track Name: Meet Crazy Dave
So you’re gonna meet crazy Dave
He’ll be your friend from cradle to grave
And he will drink you under the table
Spin you ‘round ‘til you’re not stable

So you wanna meet crazy Dave?
Give your liver a wave
You’re gonna walk from the Bell to the working man’s club
To the Oddies then back again.

Oh you know he’s just an ordinary guy
And his children are the apple of his eye
He’s just a sucker for the simple things in life
And who’d complain or deny? Not I…

So you’re gonna meet crazy Dave
He knows not how to behave
He’s a metrosexual lover of life
With a tongue that’s like a knife

So you wanna meet crazy Dave
If he’s horny then you’re not safe
So lock up your sons and daughters my friend
And warn your wife to stay away

Oh you know he’s just an ordinary guy
And his children are the apple of his eye
He’s just a sucker for the simple things in life
And who’d complain or deny? Not I…

So you’re gonna meet crazy Dave
Then you’re gonna have to meet his mates
They’re a mercenary vagabond bunch
Of beggars and party slaves

So you really wanna meet the man?
Are you sure you wanna meet the man?
So you really wanna meet the man?
Are you brave enough to meet the man?
Track Name: On a Sunday Morning
Sunday morning
Cold wind blowing outside
All the new generation
Get their fix of exercise

The big kids are doing alright
cos they still think it's Saturday night
On a Sunday morning
On a Sunday morning

Superfood for breakfast
Dried fruit cereal bars
All the new generation
are tying bikes to the roof of their cars

While the big kids are feeling alright
cos they're still living Saturday night
On a Sunday morning
On a Sunday morning

Sunday morning big kids count up the bottles and cans
In a well oiled ritual held in honour of the brother man
The new generation they all think it's a little bit sad
La la la la la la, la la la la la la. Look out.

Twenty miles is painless
Half is a piece of cake
Celebrate with a cocktail
Of low fat protein shakes

The big kids are doing alright
cos they still think it's Saturday night
On a Sunday morning
On a Sunday morning

La la la la la la, la la la la la la. Look out.
Track Name: Brother Find the Peace (that you yearn for)
Things that you said
things that you said
Stuck in my head
Stuck in my head

Brother I hope you find the peace that you yearn for
Brother I hope you find the peace that you yearn for
Brother I hope you find the peace that you yearn for
Brother I hope you find the peace that you yearn for

A man has not a friend
Without a soul with which to share
A house is not a home
without a soul existing there

This brother has no peace
because he'll chase the rainbows end
This brother has no peace
Because he'll chase his only friend

The warmth of your bed
Warmth of your bed
Your heart feels like lead
heart feels like lead

All you want's a bit of peace of mind
Brother don't you know
All the lost hours you put into it
and there's nothing to show
and boy right now it feels
like it's starting to go

Things that you said
things that you said
Stuck in my head
Stuck in my head

Brother I hope you find the peace that you yearn for
Brother I hope you find the peace that you yearn for
Brother I hope you find the peace that you yearn for
Brother I hope you find the peace that you yearn for

A man has not a friend
Without a soul with which to share
A house is not a home
without a soul existing there

This brother has no peace
because he'll chase the rainbows end
This brother has no peace
Because he'll chase his only friend
Track Name: Freak Show
If you see me looking at you
And the devil is in my eye honey
It’s not what it seems
It’s not what it seems

If you catch me checking you over
Whenever you walk on by honey
That’s not what I mean
That’s not what I mean

Because you lift me up
And then you knock me out
Oh I’m a slave to my feelings
That’s what it’s all about
And it’s driving me crazy
So help me out
Oh honey I’m a freakshow
Oh honey I’m a freakshow

If you find me playing the clown
Whenever you’re around
It’s not what it seems
It’s not what it seems

If it’s like I’m making you laugh
By putting others down honey
That’s not really me
That’s not really me

I can’t help myself
You knock me out
Oh I’m a slave to my feelings
That’s what it’s all about
And it’s driving me crazy
So help me out
Oh honey I’m a freakshow
Oh honey I’m a freakshow

If you find me hanging around
When I should be somewhere else
That’s not what it seems
It’s not what it seems

And one too many coincidences
Make you doubt yourself honey
That’s not what I mean
That’s not what I mean

It’s just you lift me up
And then you knock me out
Oh I’m a slave to my feelings
That’s what it’s all about
And it’s driving me crazy
So help me out
Oh honey I’m a freakshow
Oh honey I’m a freakshow
Track Name: Perfect Lullaby
Just Perfect

I was just 4 or 3
3 or 4
I had just the perfect name that I could be
I can do my own thing (It was perfect)

It's my proper thing
forever and ever
It's my proper thing
I like my name

Perfect oh.
It's my proper thing
Forever and ever
Just Perfect

Just forever and ever
The forever and ever

I was just 4 or 3
3 or 4
I had just the perfect name that I could be
I can do my own thing (It was perfect)

It's my proper thing
forever and ever
It's my proper thing
I like my name

My name it's just perfect oh
It's my proper thing
Forever and ever
Just perfect

Being me
Being me

Just perfect.
