Yeah, I found nowhere It got to know me Let me sleep all day Spend the money I haven't felt my legs Since the summer And I don't call my friends Forgot their numbers VIP 223 I had my chances Or did they have me Now stay up nights Watch TV I'm country sad I'm a ballad man I'm on a comeback roll Yeah, I'm a blizzard And in my motor home Sweat on my pillow all night VIP 223 I've had my chances And they had me Now stay up nights Watch TV I'm country sad I'm a ballad man VIP 223 I've had my chances And they had me Now stay up nights Watch TV I'm country sad I'm a ballad man I feel no ? Cos I'm a ballad man I talk to the girls Cos I'm a ballad man Yeah, I? Cos I'm a ballad man Yeah, I sure? Cos I'm a ballad man

It's automatic (It's automatic) I need to unload (Need to unload) Under the pressure (Under the pressure) Gone middle of the road (Middle of the road) Fall into fashion (Fall into fashion) Fall out again (Fall out again) We stick together (We stick together) Cos it never ends (It never ends) Here comes a low (I'm a boy and you're a girl) Here comes a high (The only ones in the world) Here comes everything (You and me we'll work it out) Here it comes You, me, we'll work it out Here comes tomorrow (Here comes tomorrow) One, two, three episodes (Three episodes) We stick together (We stick together) Gone middle of the road (Middle of the road) Cos that's entertainment (That's entertainment) It's the sound of the wheel (Sound of the wheel) It rolls on forever (Roll, roll forever) Yeah you know how it feels (Know how it feels) Here comes a low (I'm a boy and you're a girl) Here comes a high (The only ones in the world) Here comes everything (Like monkeys out in space) Here it comes (We are members of the human race) Here comes a low (I'm a boy and you're a girl) Here comes a high (The only ones in the world) Here comes everything (You and me we'll work it out) Here it comes You, me, we'll work it out It's automatic (It's automatic) I need to unload (Need to unload) Under the pressure (Under the pressure) Gone middle of the road (Middle of the road) Here comes a low (I'm a boy and you're a girl) Here comes a high (The only ones in the world) Here comes everything (Like monkeys in outer space) Here it comes (We are members of the human race) Here comes a low (I'm a boy and you're a girl) Here comes a high (The only ones in the world) Here comes everything (You and me we'll work it out) Here it comes You, me, we'll work it out

5: On Your Own

Holy man tiptoed his way across the Ganges The sound of magic music in his ears Videoed by a bus load of tourists Shiny shellsuits on, and drinking lemonade. Now, I've got a funny feeling which I bought mail order From a man in a tee-pee, California. He said he once was the great game show performer Then he blew all his money away, Blew it all away. So take me home, don't leave me alone I'm not that good, but I'm not that bad No psycho killer, hooligan geurilla I dream to riot, oh you should try it R. E. Perot, get gold card soul My joy of life is on a roll And we'll all be the same in the end Cos then you're on your own Then you're on your own Well, we all go happy day glow in the disco The sound of magic music in our brains Someone stumbles to the bathroom with the horrors Says Lord, give me time, for I've jumped into space I'm in outer space. So take me home, don't leave me alone I'm not that good, but I'm not that bad No psycho killer, hooligan geurilla I dream to riot, oh you should try it R. E. Perot, get gold card soul My joy of life is on a roll And we'll all be the same in the end Cos then you're on your own Then you're on your own So take me home, don't leave me alone I'm not that good, but I'm not that bad No psycho killer, hooligan guerilla I dream to riot, oh you should try it R. E. Perot, get gold card soul My joy of life is on a roll And we'll all be the same in the end Cos then you're on your own Then you're on your own

6: Theme From Retro

This song is instrumental. There are no words.

7: You're So Great

Sad, drunk, and poorly Sleeping really late Sad, drunk, and poorly Not feeling so great Wandering lost in a town full of frowns Sad, drunk, and poorly Dogs digging up the ground And I feel the light In the night and in the day And I feel the light When the sky's just mud and grey And I feel the light When you tell me it's OK Cos you're so great, and I love you DT and coffee Helps to start the day DT and coffee Shaking all the way City's alive and, surprise, so am I Tea, tea and coffee Get no sleep today And I feel the light In the night and in the day And I feel the light When the sky's just mud and grey And I feel the light When you tell me it's OK Cos you're so great, and I love you

8: Death Of A Party

The death of the party Came as no surprise Why did we bother? Should have stayed away Another night And I thought Well, well Go to another party and hang myself Gently on the shelf The death of the teenager Standing on his own Why did he bother? Should have slept alone Another night And I thought Well, well Go to another party and hang myself Gently on the shelf Another night And I thought Well, well Go to another party and hang myself Gently on the shelf

9: Chinese Bombs

He makes an inner arm block Then kicks from behind The lights, they go off But he can fight blind Cos he got the touch And he won't live long He comes from Hong Kong Where justice is done Chinese bombs, millions jump Chairman's junk, USA Won't somebody, won't somebody Sink the place Got a call to go to Soho The dragon said go Let everyone know That you got the touch You come from Hong Kong Where justice is done Where people are strong But you won't live long Chinese bombs, millions jump Chairman's junk, USA Bruce Lee come, save the day Bruce Lee come the Chinese way

10: I'm Just A Killer For Your Love

I heard a man who had no lungs He took me in and made me lunch Told me how I'd lost a friend He smiled at me - that was the end And I said, I'm just a killer for your love I'm just a killer for your love I'm just a killer for your love I'm just a killer for your love Cut my hair off in the road I tear my coat off, drop my load Wipe my hands on the grass Cos now I know nothing will last And I said, I'm just a killer for your love I'm just a killer for your love I'm just a killer for your love I'm just a killer for your love

11: Look Inside America

Good morning, lethargy Drink Pepsi - it's good for energy The bath's on, smoke in the bedroom Sore throat, and on my neck a nasty bruise And where it came from Well I don't know But we played last night - it was a good show Got the play-out on a second rate chat show A nationwide deal, so we gotta go Jeff from the Company says it'll be alright Got an ad on KROQ And there's an in-store tonight Well I build things up Then I let them go Got to get time share on the radio Look inside America She's alright, she's alright Sitting out in the distance But I'm not trying to make her mine Looking for America With its kookie nights And suicides TV says its alright Cos everybody's hung up On something or other Stepping off in twenty So the driver says I should sleep tonight But I think I'll watch videos instead Annie Hall leaves New York in the end Press rewind and Woody gets her back again And the whole world could have passed through me But I don't know that it means much to me Look inside America She's alright, she's alright Sitting out in the distance But I'm not trying to make her mine I'm looking for America With its kookie nights And suicides TV says its alright Cos everybody's strung out On something or other And the whole world could have passed through me But I don't know that it means much to me

12: Strange News from Another Star

All I want to be Is washed out by the sea No Death Star over me Won't give me any peace All I want is light relief Put the crazies on the street Give them guns and feed them meat They'll shoot the Death Star down Dig a hole and put it down A thousand miles underground They say it's no game There's strange news from another star I'm lost, I'm lost There's strange news from another star Give me all your stuff Until I can't get up Watch the whole world freeze Counting tin cans in our sleep Submarines are diving deep And don't believe in me And don't believe in me All I've ever done is tame Will you love me all the same Will you love me though it's always the same They say it's no game There's strange news from another star I'm lost, I'm lost There's strange news from another star From another star From another star From another star

13: Movin' On

At the music heist I met the gourmet man With aluminum lungs Sucks out all he can He sees the whole world go flip In a stunt bug style Cos he's a parasite With a cellulite pile Well he can smile Cos this is the music Movin' on, we're movin' on Hey, this is the music Movin' on, we're movin' on Sticky eyes and sticky bones You get no time on your own You get a dose and a ghost You get it coast to coast Now you dye your hair black Get Satan tattooed on your back You pierce yourself with a Coke can And rub yourself with fake tan Now you're in the band Cos this is the music Movin' on, we're movin' on Hey, this is the music Movin' on, we're movin' on No matter how low There's always further to go When you're movin' on, you're movin' on No matter how low There's always somewhere to go Movin on, we're movin' on Won't be long before we're gone Hey, this is the music Movin' on, we're movin' on Yeah, this is the music Movin' on, we're movin' on No matter how low Theres always further to go Movin' on, you're movin' on No matter how low There's always further to go

14: Essex Dogs

I remember thinking murder in the car Watching dogs somersault through sprinklers on tiny lawns I remember the graffiti We are your children coming in with spray cans of paint I remember the sunsets and the plains of cement And the way the night just seemed to turn the colour of orangeade In this town, cellular phones are hot with teens In this town, we all go to terminal pubs It helps us sweat out those angry bits of life From this town, the English army grind their teeth into glass You know you'll get a kicking tonight The smell of puke and piss The smell of puke and piss on your stilettos Here comes that panic attack My heart stops... and then it starts Give me a drink I'll drink your round I take you round the pole It's cold up here (I see the universe waiting by a minibus) You'll catch the flu Or you'll catch the city Either way, you'll catch the flu Or you'll catch the city
