Track Name: Fake News
Fake News

I know this town, like the back of my hand
Stereo sound, when there's no one around
Sounds like the violins playing music from the stars
Breathing in the diesel fumes of the buses and the cars

The merry-go-round, everyone talks nobody listens
The words on a bus, not always gold even though they glisten
I got a bone to pick with my radiologist
He said you've broken it though I thought it just a twist

The sun like a laser, burning my feet just stepping on the pavement
Stuns like a taser, climate change is just an overstatement
Burn it down, Blow a fuse, Bust it up, It’s Fake News

Time was, a reptile brain would only be found in a beast
Cold blooded, reclining on rocks, seeking out the heat
There's lizards in charge, the rumours were sane,
They're everywhere, crawling through our brains
They're all impostors, they're all insane, they're taking us down they feel no shame

The sun like a laser, burning my feet just stepping on the pavement
Stuns like a taser, climate change is just an overstatement
Burn it down, Blow a fuse, Bust it up, It’s Fake News
Track Name: The E=mc² Song
E=mc²

Been fighting an equation, quadratic in formation all night
Can't get it all to balance, can't get it all to come out right

x and y, coming over way too high
Getting in the way of pi
Making me cry
That Nobel prize, shrinking right before my eyes
Turning into see-through lies
Making me sigh

E equals MC squared, why didn't I think of that
A peer review of my papers
Grow a beard, wear a Homburg hat
Fame and adulation, doors open wherever I go
My picture in all of the papers
Just because of the things that I know

The truth is all revealing
I can see just where I'm at
Relatively speaking
There's a void underneath my hat

The numbers don't add up
My calculators gone on the blink
If you follow all my workings
You realise I'm thicker than I think

Science and me were never really meant to be
I love it but I just don't see
How to work that key
It's beautiful and elegant, it helps if you're intelligent
If your youth was not mis-spent
That's just not me

E equals MC squared, why didn't I think of that
A peer review of my papers
Grow a beard, wear a Homburg hat
Fame and adulation, doors open wherever I go
My picture in all of the papers
Just because of the things that I know

The truth is all revealing
I can see just where I'm at
Relatively speaking
There's a void underneath my hat
Track Name: I Don't Trust You
I don't want your smartphone, I don't want your apps
I don't want your monthly payments, that ain't where it's at
I don't want to control my home wherever I am at
I just want to be left alone just leave me where I'm sat
A thousand years of evolution a thousand years of pain
A hundred hours of unlimited data a hundred hours of shame
You got me where you want me my phone is getting slow
Did you do that to exploit me how was I supposed to know
Now I don't trust you

Take me where the wild things grow
Take me where the winds will blow
Down to the waters edge
Deep in the wilderness
Take me where no human hand has done some awful deal
Take me to the outer edge, show me something real
My mind is getting restless, I'm so tired of bought and sold
Do we only have true meaning if a price is on our soul
Now I don't trust you
Track Name: This Road Leads To Heaven
This road leads to heaven
That road leads to hell
The other road leads to nowhere
As far as I can tell
Leave behind your worries
Leave behind your cares
Climb on board this brief excursion
Be born again, a full conversion
Who knows where it will lead
Who knows where it will end
One things sure we've never been here before
I hope that we don't come again

Lies and outright deception
The truth gone up in flames
The the only truth now is money
But the money's just not the same
Leave behind your squeamish conscience
Leave behind your qualms
Take this pill you'll feel elation
Express your righteous indignation
Who knows where it will lead
Who knows where it will end
One things sure we've never been here before
And I hope that we don't come again

When I was a boy, the flags were hung out, for the empire
The greatest thing was god and queen and the gunfire
But all I see is a trail of misery
The smell of cordite, the shame of our history
One things for sure we shouldn't have done that before
At least we're too weak to do it again
