Track Name: UNTITLED
NOTHING EVER HAPPENS ON THIS STUPID LITTLE ROCK
IF I COULD FIND SOMETHING THAT MATTERS IT WOULD REALLY TURN ME ON
SO I'M TRYING TO BUILD SOMETHING OUT OF RANDOM BITS OF SONGS
IF I CAN MAKE A WORLD THAT MATTERS THAT WOULD MEAN THAT I AM GOD

(and I like the thought of being god for a little while)
Track Name: ppurgatory
I can hear Oscar sleeping
Somewhere in the dark a spot on the carpet's breathing
There he lies
Looking like the poster boy for foetal alcohol syndrome

Breath it out
But don't push me

Julian - i know he's around here somewhere
I haven't seen him since he cleared out my sock drawer
He'll get laid on the strength of this story

Breath it out
But don't push me
This time I don't care how many
of you that I take with me

The truth is I could kill all of you motherfuckers
But I don't want to see your face when I get to hell
Track Name: How do you know there's a vegan at your dinner party?
I get it
You don't have to tell me all about social occasions and cultural traditions and the economy
and I get it
Your guilt is outweighed by the joy that you get from that carved up carcass on your plate

But don't act like the way I eat imposes on your life
And if you feel bad maybe that's between you, your fork and your knife

So, how do you know there's a vegan at your dinner party?

They'll answer questions about it politely until some asshole throws a shit-fit about how they're not going to get enough protein and 'why should I feel bad about eating meat when our ancestors have done it for generations and, anyway, animals eat other animals, that's just nature and, besides, if you're so concerned about killing animals, then how come you don't care about all those plants you've killed, you hypocrite?'

You see, I don't think I'm better than you just because I stay away from meat, but at least I've got the decency to shut the fuck up about it while you're eating.

Track Name: Gin and Tonic for the Soul
You've got to be stoic in the face of your own inherent evil
and tell yourself that's what punk rocks really about
You've got to show compassion to the psychopaths and pricks and selfish fucks
and tell yourself that that's what being good's really about

You've got to be who you are even when who you are is a shithead (maybe I'm not sure about this one)

You've got to keep on writing even when you don't seem to write anything good
Because sooner or later you'll write a song that's OK
You've got to keep on gigging even though you're sure that nobody understands your art
Because sooner or later somebody might (and then you can be friends)

You've got to practice what you preach and preach what you're too scared to practice
and then just keep practicing and eventually you'll get better
and do your best to stop fantasising about shooting yourself in the groin and bleeding to death on your couch
Because you share that couch with four other people (who, honestly, probably don't want to see you suffer)

And sometimes you have to write these lame, twee, cheesy little pep-talks into songs
because that whole sarcastic, sardonic, post-modern, ironic, pseudo-intellectual, hungover day-to-day of getting older leads you nowhere
except outside of your skull

AND YOU DON'T DESERVE TO DIE
AT LEAST NOT YET
YOU HAVEN'T EARNED THE RIGHT
SO SERIOUSLY, CHARLIE

don't kill yourself
