Track Name: Radio Unfriendly
Here it is
The best we can do

You won't like it
You won't like it

You get what you want
Always knew you would

You won't like it
You won't like it

Make your demands
Claim you have power

But we don't sing for you (won't like it)
No we won't sing for you (won't like it)

The noise that we make
Will keep you from your sleep

You won't like it
You won't like it

Make your demands
Claim you have power
Rail against the world
Speak your empty mind

But we don't sing for you (won't like it)
No we won't sing for you (won't like it)
We don't sing for you (won't like it)
No we won't sing for you
Track Name: Harder to Believe
It's getting harder to believe
Saying the words will make it true
There's not much left for us to do
But to throw the towel in

Mercy, have mercy please
Release your stranglehold of me
Your grip is so tight I cannot breathe
I'm trying to give in

Let me out
I've paid my bail
I want to go home
I'm not afraid to be alone (no not anymore)

It's getting harder to stop myself
There's options everywhere
It's my fault it's too much to bear
But I can't take any more

Have we stuck it out long enough
To convince us to commit?
How much longer til we admit
That we can't take any more?

Let me out
I've paid my bail
I want to go home
I'm not afraid to be alone

Let me out
I've paid my bail
I want to go home
I'm not afraid to be alone (no not anymore)
Track Name: Fluorescent Lights Will Steal Your Soul
This is no way to make a living
This is no kind of life at all
Feeling like you're so much older
Than you really are

Making lists for the future
It's a detailed escape plan
Getting paid to be held captive
What the hell went wrong?

I must lose myself
On the way out of the house
I don't know who I am
When I'm working

Fluorescent lights will drive you crazy
It's possible they steal your soul
Leaves a gaping hole inside you
That you can never fill

If you think the future will be much better
I wouldn't want to let you down
Work is how the world defines you
That will never change

I must lose myself
On the way out of the house
I don't know who I am
When I'm working

I must lose myself
On the way out of the house
I don't know who I am
When I'm working
Track Name: Misogyny
A pretty face
An active mind
Make no mistake
You will be mine

I'm watching you
Behind a veil

Misogyny...

I'm proud of you
And what you've achieved
But understand
You're nothing without me

Misogyny...

Let's get married
And build a home
We'll have three children
To call our own

And I will define you
I will define you
I will define you
I will define you

Misogyny...

Let's get married
And build a home
We'll have three children
To call our own

And I will define you
I will define you
Track Name: Boil the Blood
Smash and grab economy
I want more equality
Twenty-first century democracy

I take what's mine, I take what's yours
The end result doesn't need a cause
Twenty-first century hypocrisy

Just as long as it boils the blood
Who cares what's in your way?
Just as long as it's a laugh
Who cares if it's okay?

Smash and grab equality
I want more democracy
Twenty-first century economy

I take what's mine, I take what's yours
The end result doesn't need a cause
Twenty-first century hypocrisy

Just as long as it boils the blood
Who cares what's in your way?
Just as long as it's a laugh
Who cares if it's okay?
Track Name: Short Song
You're better than all I have
I've wanted you
Out of the dark
Newly discovered
What I always knew

You're alright
I think that you're okay
You go with me

And if I needed someone
I guess you'd do
I've been thinking of no-one else
No-one like you

It's taken so long to reach you
And now I'm here
So high above my expectations
But it is clear

You're alright
I think that you're okay
You go with me

And if I needed someone
I guess you'd do
I've been thinking of no-one else
No-one like you
