Track Name: The Vile Maxim
THE VILE MAXIM. THE MASTERS OF MANKIND. THE ONES WHO’VE HOARDED. THE ONES OUR LIVES DEVISED. ADAM SMITH DESCRIBES IT IN THE WEALTH OF ALL NATIONS. IT IS THE PRIMARY FOCUS ALL FOR THEM NOTHING FOR US. THAT WAS WAY BACK IN SEVENTEEN SEVENTY SIX. WHO SAYS OLD DOGS CANNOT LEARN NEW TRICKS? WHO DRAWS THE SHORT STRAWS WHEN PICKING UP STICKS? YOU AND I. YOU AND I. THE VILE MAXIM. THE MASTERS OF MANKIND. THE ONES WHO’VE HOARDED. THE ONES OUR LIVES DEVISED. HOW HARD TO ERASE THIS IMPOSSIBLE EQUATION. IF ONLY TO DEBASE. THESE LONG STANDING FOUNDATIONS WE NEED A FIX. EMPLOY SOME MONEY RESTRICTIONS. IF THERE’S A POVERTY LINE WHERE IS THE LINE OF WEALTH? GIVE SURPLUS BACK TO THE POPULATION CUZ THAT’S WHERE IT’S NEEDED.
Track Name: Spike My Drink But Don't Take My Kidneys
WHEN I GO OUT ALWAYS LOOKING FOR A CHEAP NIGHT. TURNED MY BACK ON MY BEER HOPING TO GET SPIKED. YEAH I’M A TAKER NOT A GIVER, DROP THAT PILL LEAVE ME WITH MY LIVER. IT’S NOT A CAUSE FOR A DEBATE, WAKING UP MINUS MY PROSTATE, DON’T MIND A ROWIE IT’S NOT LIKE I’M TEMPTING FATE. SPIKE MY DRINK BUT DON’T TAKE MY KIDNEYS. PLEASE SPIKE MY DRINK. THE LAST THING I WANT IS TO WAKE UP IN A TUB OF ICE WHERE IS MY GUT. THAT DRINK MIGHT’VE BEEN A BAD DECISION I DON’T RECALL HAVING THIS INCISION. I’M FEELING DRAINED PAIN PERSISTING, BORN WITH 2 KIDNEYS NOW ONE IS MISSING, THEY TOOK MY TONGUE MAN NO MORE FRENCH KISSING. SPIKE MY DRINK BUT DON’T TAKE MY KIDNEYS. PLEASE SPIKE MY DRINK.
Track Name: Bottles Warm
GRAB ME A BEER I NEED TO THINK THINGS OVER. I’VE NEVER BEEN GOOD AT DOING ANYTHING SOBER. AND IF I ONLY HAVE ENOUGH CASH FOR ONE MORE, I’LL CRACK IT NOW BUT I’LL WAIT UNTIL THE BOTTLE’S WARM. SO IT’S COME TO THIS. ALL THESE YEARS OF HIT AND MISS, STILL PLAYING SHOWS, STILL GETTING PAID IN PISS. NOW WITH MY ONE LAST WISH. I CLOSE MY EYES, I CLENCH MY FIST I SMASH SOCIETY’S SOBRIETY INTO A MILLION BITS. SICK OF WAKING UP, ALL FUCKED UP, NEVER KNOWING WHERE I AM, ALWAYS FEELING SICK, ALWAYS STINKING LIKE SHIT, WHY DO I DO THIS? AND IF I COULD, I’D GIVE IT ALL UP TOMORROW BUT I KINDA LIKE MY LIFE THE WAY IT IS. SO IT’S COME TO THIS, ALL THESE YEARS OF HIT AND MISS
STILL PLAYING SHOWS, STILL GETTING PAID IN PISS. AND WITH MY ONE LAST DRINK, I GRASP MY BOTTLE DON’T STOP TO THINK THAT LIFE’S A GAMBLE IN A RIGGED GAME OF RUSSIAN ROULETTE. CLICK! CLICK! CLICK! I CHECK MYSELF OUT OF REHAB AND STRAIGHT INTO MY DEALER’S HOUSE. I LEFT ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS EARLY, TO GET TO HAPPY HOUR, BEFORE THEY KICK THE PUNKS OUT! SO KEEP DRINKING, MY FRIENDS THEY SAY IT’S BETTER FOR OUR FAILING ECONOMY. AND KEEP SMILING, I KNOW IT’S HARD WHEN YOU’RE PAYING TAX ON WHAT THEY SHOULD BE GIVING YOU FOR FREE. OR ON PRESCRIPTION, NOW MY ADDICTIONS ARE GETTING TO THE POINT WHERE THEY’RE BECOMING RIDICULOUS. SO IT’S COME TO THIS. I’VE BEEN THINKING I’VE BEEN DRINKING I DON’T MIND, I DON’T MIND BOTTLES WARM. I DON’T MIND BOTTLES WARM.
Track Name: I Have A Sex Addiction
I WILL GIVE YOU MY SAFE WORD, TREAT ME LIKE A PIECE OF DIRT, BRING ME A WORLD OF HURT THEN YOU CAN SQUIRT ON MY FACE. IT DONT MATTER HOW I GET MYSELF OFF YOU GO FIRST IT’S COOL THAT’S BULLSHIT I DON’T CARE ABOUT LETS GO TO MY PLACE. I GET ERECTIONS EATING FOOD ANYTHING GETS ME IN THE MOOD MY APPETITE GROWS LARGER AND IT’LL NEVER EVER CEASE. SLIGHT BREEZES TURN ME ON OR RUBBING ON MY BOXER SHORTS I’VE GOT A CONSTANT ERRECTION CRIPPLED WITH THIS DISEASE. I HAVE A SEX ADDICTION. A CURSED MENTAL CONDITION. I HAVE A SEX ADDICTION AHH AHH. I HAVE A SEX ADDICTION. TOTAL DOMINATION. I HAVE A SEX ADDICTION AH AHH. IF I CAN’T GET A LOAD AWAY CAN’T FIND A SLUT OR A FATTIE THEN I’LL WANK MY DAY AWAY WHEN SHOOTING BLANKS MY JOB IS DONE. I HUMP PILLOWS AND TEDDY BEARS AND SOMETIMES BUNCHED UP CARPET SQUARES IF I COULD MAKE YOU MY BREAD N BUTTER THEN I’D RELISH IN THE CRUMBS. WHAT’S THIS A GLORY HOLE? THEY SAY ANY PORT IN A STORM FOR ME IT’S GROWING MORE INCLEMENT EVERY PASSING DAY. IT’S GOT SO BAD WHEN NO ONES AROUND YEAH IT’S REALLY GOT THAT BAD, I CALL MY DOG, DROP MY STRIDES TO LICK VEGEMITE OF MY KNOB. I HAVE A SEX ADDICTION. AFTER MY FIRST TIME I NEVER FELT THE SAME. IS IT HEREDITARY? ARE MY PARENTS TO BLAME? OR SOCIETY? SHOULD I BE ASHAMED? EXCUSE ME WHILE I GET MYSELF OFF! OH YEAH THIS IS TOTALLY HYPOTHETICAL. I HAVE A SEX ADDICTION. A CURSED MENTAL CONDITION. I HAVE A SEX ADDICTION.
Track Name: IV Phones
NOTICE HEADS BURIED. THERE GOES THE TRAIN YOU’D NEVER KNOW. HANDCUFFED TO TECHNOLOGY. BREAK THE SHACKLES LOOK UP START LIVING. CRAVING SOCIAL ADDICTION. WE BECOME DISCONNECTED. LIKES ENSURE DEEP SLEEP AT NIGHT. WAKE UP MATE WAKE UP AND SEE. AND I KNOW WHERE I STAND MY LIFE’S WORTH LIVING. AND I KNOW I CAN’T TAKE MUCH MORE OF THIS. LIVE LIFE NOT THROUGH CELL PHONES. ENSLAVED SHOT TO THE VEIN. GROUP CHATS ON MESSENGER. YOUR DINNER’S MY NEWS FEED. POST SELFIES ON INSTAGRAM. GOTTA FILM FUCKING EVERYTHING. NO FISTS PHONES STEAL THE SHOW. I GUESS THERE’S TOO MUCH PORN TO WATCH. GOT NO MORE DATA GOT NO MORE DATA LEFT. AND I KNOW WHERE I STAND MY LIFE’S WORTH LIVING. AND I KNOW I CAN’T TAKE MUCH MORE OF THIS. LIVE LIFE NOT THROUGH CELL PHONES. IV PHONES FOR A SICK DEGENERATION. IV PHONES FOR A SICK DEGENERATION.
Track Name: I Can See The Way You Look At My Mum
I CAN SEE THE WAY YOU LOOK AT MY MUM AND WE ARE THE SAME, AM I YOUR SON? WE CAN STILL BE MATES, STOP FONDLING YOUR GROIN AT MY GATES. WHEN THE MILKMAN COMES AROUND SHE’S ALWAYS IN HER DRESSING GOWN AND YOUR FACE LOOKS QUITE FAMILIAR WHEN I LOOK INTO THE MIRROR. ARE WE RELATED WAS IT YOU WHO INSEMINATED ME IN HER VAGINA IS IT COOL TO CALL YOU DAD? I CAN SEE THE WAY YOU LOOK AT MY MUM AND WE ARE THE SAME, AM I YOUR SON? WHEN WE GET THE GARDENS DONE, SHE’S ALWAYS TANNING IN THE SUN, IS IT MY PARANOIA OR IS IT MUM IS THE LAWN MOWER?. NO MORE RAKING UP THE LEAVES, NO POCKET MONEY FOR ME NOW IT SEEMS THAT WE NEED LANDSCAPING DONE EVERY FUCKING WEEK. THE PIZZA DELIVERY GUY SHARES MY PHYSIQUE, HAIR, TEETH AND EYES, AND I REALLY WANNA REQUEST TO TAKE A DNA TEST. I CAN SEE THE WAY YOU LOOK AT MY MUM AND WE ARE THE SAME, AM I YOUR SON? IT’S 6:30, MY DINNER’S NOT DONE, THE SCHOOL BUS IS HERE BUT WHERE’S MY LUNCH? ITS SO OBVIOUS TO EVERYONE SO PLEASE STOP FUCKING MY MUM.
Track Name: Solid As Is Hollow
FRED SHOWED US THE WAY WITH HIS COMPASSIONATE DISPLAY HE WAS A MAN MORE SOLID THAN HIS NAME EVER PORTRAYED. AN INTRIGUING AND AMBITIOUS PLIGHT HE NEVER GAVE UP THE FIGHT THE WORLD HE STRIVED TO CHANGE HIS FOUNDATIONS POURED AND LAID. HOLLOW WHOA. A DEVOTEE TO HELPING MANKIND AN OPTHAMOLOGIST HELPING WITH POOR SIGHT. IN ABORIGINAL COMMUNITIES HELPING THOSE WHO COULD NOT SEE OR AFFORD PROPER TREATMENT LIKE THOSE ONES WHOSE LIVES ARE MADE. NO MATTER A LOWER CLASS OR KING EVERYBODY’S IRIS SCREAMS OUT WITHIN THESE POORER COMMUNITIES VOICES PROCLAIMED. HE WAS AWARDED AUSTRALIAN OF THE YEAR DESPITE BEING FROM DUNEDIN. HIS LENS FACTORIES IN NEPAL ENSURED THEY WERE REPLACED. COULD WE EVER GIVE LIKE FRED HOLLOWS? CAN WE STRIVE TO LIVE LIKE FRED HOLLOWS? I DON’T KNOW. CAN WE STRIVE TO LIVE LIKE FRED HOLLOWS? COULD WE EVER GIVE? WE CAN ONLY HOPE.
Track Name: I've Had Islamabad Day
I DON’T LIKE RELIGIOUS EXTREMISTS I CAN SEE CATHOLIC TERRORISTS. POKING AT ISLAMIC HORNETS NESTS WHY DON’T YOU ALL GIVE IT A REST THEY’RE ALL JUST STUPID RELIGIONS. IS ISLAMABAD, I’VE HAD ISLAMABAD DAY. DON’T BLOW ME UP JUST BLOW ME. I DON’T CARE WHAT YOU ALL BELIEVE IN. DIFFERENT BELIEFS DON’T EQUATE TO SIN. FABLES FALL FROM SIMILAR ORIGINS. VIOLENCE IS NO CURE TO KILL ISN’T CONSEQUENT. IS ISLAMABAD, I’VE HAD ISLAMABAD DAY. DON’T BLOW ME UP JUST BLOW ME.
Track Name: Borderline
COMMON SENSE BEGS THE QUESTION. THERE’S NO THOUGHT TO CONSEQUENCE. AS WE SCREAM OUR IGNORANCE. INSIGNIFICANCE. MAGNIFIED BY BITTERNESS. INDIFFERENCE. TO A WORLD WE ALL SHOULD LOVE BUT ALL DESPISE. OVERRUN BY HATE. THEY’RE RUNNING FOR THEIR LIVES THERE’S NO SURPRISE THE NEW LIFE THAT THEY SEEK IS SO HARD TO FIND. THERE’S A QUEUE FOR FREEDOM. HOW MUCH LONGER CAN THEY CLING TO FALSE HOPE AT THE BORDERLINE?
THEIR ANGUISH NURTURED BY CORRUPTION. FED LIES! ALL PATHS TO FREEDOM FLAT DENIED. BUT THEY’LL KEEP SEARCHING TILL THEY LOSE ALL SENSE OF THEIR DIRECTION WITH ONLY US TO FIGHT THEIR CAUSE THEIR VISAS BLOCKED OR JUST IGNORED. WITH NOWHERE ELSE TO GO. WITH DIRTY POLITICS ON SHOW THEIR FAMILIES LEFT TO SUFFER DAY BY DAY AND BLOW BY BLOW. THE STIGMA STICKS LIKE MUD THE MEMORIES THAT FLOOD ARE STAINED WITH BLOOD AND NOW THERE’S NO PLACE LEFT FOR THEM TO CALL THEIR OWN. THE CIRLCE ENDS WHERE IT BEGINS.
Track Name: Lost The Plot
HE’S LOST THE PLOT AND THERE’S NOTHING WE CAN DO ABOUT IT. HE’S LOST THE PLOT HE’S LOST THE PLOT. HE LOVES THE BOOZE HE LOVES THE SHOTS BUT DON’T TELL HIM HE’S HAD ENOUGH IT’S ALL FORGOTTEN ON THE NEXT DAY. WHEN HE HITS THE PISS YOU DUNNO IF HE WILL END THE DAY NAKED HIRE A CHOPPER TAKE A TAB DO SOMETHING SPONTANEOUS. HE’S LOST THE PLOT AND THERE’S NOTHING WE CAN DO ABOUT IT. HE’S LOST THE PLOT HE’S LOST THE PLOT AND THERE’S NOTHING WE CAN DO. THE USE OF SARCASM FOR MOST OF US A JOKE FRIENDLY PISS TAKE. 3 OUT OF 5 TIMES MISTAKEN ENDING IN A MINOR SPRAY. DONT GET ME WRONG WHEN THERE’S TROUBLE ON THE FIRST ONE TO STAND TALL. HE GETS MIXED UP SOMETIMES HIS HEART’S ALWAYS IN THE RIGHT PLACE. SING IT. HE’S LOST THE PLOT AND THERE’S NOTHING WE CAN DO ABOUT IT. HE’S LOST THE PLOT HE’S LOST THE PLOT AND THERE’S NOTHING WE CAN DO.
Track Name: David & Goliath
THERE’S A DAVID A GOLIATH A COWARDLY BROTHER SAUL. DON’T RELY ON DESTINY CUZ NOTHING’S SET IN STONE. A STORM THE LIGHTNING STRIKES AND IT’S ALWAYS BEEN THAT WAY. SOMEONE WILL TAKE HIS PLACE. SOMEONE WILL TAKE HER PLACE. SOMEONE WILL TAKE THEIR PLACE. SOMEONE WILL TAKE THIS PLACE. ALWAYS SUCCEEDED THE GIANTS FALL TOPPLE THE TYRANT ONLY TO BE REPLACED BY MORE. AM I MAKING ANY SENSE? CAN I MAKE A DIFFERENCE? THESE SENSELESS SENSIBILITIES SEEM OUT OF CONTEXT. THE TIME IS NIGH. THE TIME IS RIGHT. DON’T WAIT FOR THE NEXT GENERATION DON’T FALTER OR PRETEND. THERE’S A DAVID A GOLIATH A COWARDLY BROTHER SAUL. DON’T RELY ON DESTINY CUZ NOTHING’S SET IN STONE. A STORM THE LIGHTNING STRIKES AND IT’S ALWAYS BEEN THAT WAY. SOMEONE WILL TAKE HIS PLACE. SOMEONE WILL TAKE HER PLACE. SOMEONE WILL TAKE THEIR PLACE. SOMEONE WILL TAKE THIS PLACE.
