1. Nothing:

Nothing
And nothing's where you're at
When you ain't got something
You'll never get it back
It's coming on like a drug
The universal power of one
But it don't mean nothing
If it all comes undone (uh-huh)

Fly away
If you fly away
You might die today
If you fly
Fly

Gimme some love
Gimme some skin
If we ain't got that then we ain't got much
And we ain't got nothing

Gimme some love
Gimme some skin
If we ain't got that then we ain't got much
And we ain't got nothing, nothing

You're left with nothing
And nothing's what you've got
When you ain't got no-one, no-one
You could have had the lot
And if it's over today
You'll never get that thing you had together, no way
You only get it once

Fly away
If you fly, If you fly

Gimme some love
Gimme some skin
If we ain't got that then we ain't got much
And we ain't got nothing

Gimme some love
Gimme some skin
If we ain't got that then we ain't got much
And we ain't got nothing, nothing

We ain't got nothing
A day's a number
Don't remember how you found it
You will never feel the same
And forever have to take
It for granted, don't remember our mistake

We ain't got nothing
A day's a number
Don't remember how you found it
You will never feel the same
And forever have to take
It for granted, don't remember our mistake

Gimme some love
So gimme some skin
If we ain't got that then we ain't got much
And we ain't got nothing, nothing

Gimme some love
So gimme some skin
If we ain't got that then we ain't got much
And we ain't got nothing, nothing

Gimme some love
So gimme some skin
If we ain't got that then we ain't got much
And we ain't got nothing, nothing

Gimme some love
So gimme some skin
If we ain't got that then we ain't got much
And we ain't got nothing, nothing




2. Something's Going On:

Somethings going on
I don't know what I did
But it worked out fine again

Got you in my song
It sounds like a hit
It's gonna be alright again

We're something to celebrate
The more you love, the more you hate
Who cares about us anyway?
Something's going on

Take some time to graduate
Take some time and don't be late
Who cares about us anyway?
Something's going on

Nothing's going right
This could go on all night
Gotta raise my game again

You're the same as me
I fit you perfectly
I'll never be the same again

We're something to celebrate
The more you love, the more you hate
Who cares about us anyway?
Something's going on

Take some time to graduate
Take some time and don't be late
Who cares about us anyway?
Something's going on

Oh,
I wanna stare at you
I wanna stare at you
I wanna stare at you all night

I wanna stare at you
I wanna stare at you
Wanna be wearing you all night
Yeah, something's going on!

We're something to celebrate
The more you love, the more you hate
Who cares about us anyway?
Something's going on

Take some time to graduate
Take some time and don't be late
Who cares about us anyway?
Something's going on

Come on!
Something's going on
Oh yeah
Something's going on




3. Six O'clock On A Tube Stop:

6 o'clock on a tube stop, waiting for a subway train
On my own, so alone, why does everybody look the same?
To the right there's a sign, telling me which way to go
To the left there's an old man shouting at the radio
The radioooo-oh

Get out, get out, get out, yeah

6 o'clock on a tube stop, waiting for a subway train
On my own, so alone, why does everybody look the same?
There's a man with a gold band, but he's got his eye on mine
There a bomb in a sports bag, could go off at any time - at any time!

When my knees don't work, I start to shake
I won't panic, I won't hesitate
It's alright, it's OK
The daylight is that way
We all go the same way

6 O'12 and I'm not well, gonna have a heart attack
Everyone is a bum, I'm gonna get my money back
Over there there's a square, talking to his telephone
Then he stares at my hair and suddenly I'm not alone, I'm not alone!

Get out, get out, get out yeah
Get out, get out, get out!

When my knees don't work, I start to shake
I won't panic, I won't hesitate
It's alright, it's OK
The daylight is that way
It's alright, it's OK

6 o'clock on a tube stop, waiting for a subway train




4. Going Down:

Suck it up, we're going down
30 seconds 'till we smash into the ground
The passengers have lost their smiles
Soon their bodies will be wreckage spread for miles

I'm in the shit, knee-deep in it, I know that this might hurt a bit
I leave my debts but no regrets - except I wish I'd took the train

Another day, another flight
There's not a chance of going down, but then we just might
So this is it, this is goodbye
And I feel like I'm gonna lose my mind

I'm in the shit, knee-deep in it, I know that this might hurt a bit
I leave my debts but no regrets - except I wish I'd took the train

Everybody has their day and I guess I'm just the same
But I'm going nowhere
Everybody has their day, never thought it would be this way
And I really don't care

I'm in the shit, knee-deep in it, I know that this might hurt a bit
I leave my debts but no regrets - except I wish I'd took the train

We're going down, we're out of sky
It sure helps if you can see the funny side
So this is over and out, this is goodbye
And I'm feeling like I'm gonna lose my mind

I try to reach her, but she's not there
But back home I hope she knows how much I care
I ease the seat back and start to pray
To the same God that puts bombs in cargo bays




5. Took It Away:

Five pretty boys for ten shitty years
Five girls next door, I'm up to my ears
I need a reaction, a new revolution
All over the country, 'cos they took it away

They took it away, it can't be impossible
They're playing the records that they play in hospital
Radio playlist for the terminally ill
You can't tell they're miming 'till you're over the hill

And it goes on (and on, and on, and on...)
And it goes on (and on, and on, and on...)

If you put it like that, you'll be dead some day
Set the record straight - they took it all away

They took it away, left us with nothing
Second-hand hits and million misses
Nobody means it, they're making up stories
You gotta blame someone, you can't blame the Tories

I blame myself, I want an easy life
Does it really matter, ain't worth no suicide
The bigger they come, the harder they fall
I'm kicking myself for wasting it all

And it goes on (and on, and on, and on...)
And it goes on (and on, and on, and on...)

If you put it like that, you'll be dead some day
Set the record straight - they took it all away

They took it away, left us with nothing

You suffer the pain of your fingers burning

And it goes on (and on, and on, and on...)
And it goes on (and on, and on, and on...)

If you put it like that, you'll be dead some day
Set the record straight - they took it all away




6. Starbucks:

She's over it, she cannot take no more yeah
Don't wanna quit but that's a pretty nice door yeah
I got a bed, it really cost a fortune
I go away and it's too big without you
You've got it good, you know how good we've got it
You've got it bad, you know how bad we've got it

I wouldn't swap it for a job in Starbucks
Wouldn't swap it for a job in Starbucks

Come on, you can have your own way
Come on, you can have your own say
So long, I'll miss him when he's gone
You don't know what it is, you don't know what it is yeah

He works on automatic
Mr. Clean but i doubt it
He's got to have his say
Who needs him anyway?

Don't get your kind of music
He lets the others choose it
He thinks you kids are freaks
He wants you on the streets

Come on, you can have your own way
Come on, you can have your own say
So long, I'll miss him when he's gone
You don't know what it is, you don't know what it is yeah

Come on, you can have your own way
Come on, you can have your own say
So long, I'll miss him when he's gone

You don't know what it does to me
You don't know what it means to me

I take it as far as it goes
(I don't wanna know what I know)
It's too late to talk about it
I ain't changing any of it
Don't listen to us

Don't want your job in Starbucks
Don't want your job in Starbucks
Don't want your job in Starbucks
Don't want your job in Starbucks

Come on, you can have your own way
Come on, you can have your own say
So long, you miss it when it's gone
You don't know what it is, you don't know what it is yeah




7. Springs:

Air on the streets, lights on the trees
Eight days a week, singer's disease
I wanna be where the sun meets the sky
I wanna be there, it's out of your mind
And I believe in the secrets you're keeping
I wanna piece of the air when I breathe in
I wanna be the gold underneath the stream
Having my moment, you know what I mean

Ooooh, it's a blue sky
And the headlights, and the headlines
It's a new day, for a new wave
It's a perfect moment, oh
I'm moving out, for a moment in The Springs

Out of my way, Berlin to L.A.
I wanna stay here and never go home again
I wanna be the grass underneath your feet
I wanna be the shops on your high street
And I believe in the secrets you're keeping
I wanna be your alarm when you sleep in
I wanna be the one you can be around
I wanna be the one who can make you proud

Ooooh, it's a blue sky
And the headlights, and the headlines
It's a new day, for a new wave
It's a perfect moment, oh
I'm moving out, for a moment in The Springs

Get a voice, don't get a doctor
That's your choice, no-one can stop you
I wanna be the one you can be around
I wanna be the one who can make you proud
Got a job, I don't got no pension
In it for love - money's too tight to mention
I wanna be in the rockin'est city
I wanna do what I want if it kills me
Have to say, your home's where you make it
It's OK, I know when you fake it
I wanna be the gum on your train seat
I wanna stand up and walk on my own feet
I wanna be the one you can be around
I wanna be the rock underneath your ground
I wanna be the one who can make you proud
I wanna be the one you can be around
I wanna be the one you can be around




8. Shut Yer Face:

So come out fighting, second's out
Who's the daddy? Well there's no doubt
Got one thing on your brain, you all act the same
But you're alright

'Cos you are from Venus and I am from Mars
You'd like your penis as big as your car
Not so good in the sack - so what, d'ya want your money back?!
Yeah, you're alright

It's just as far as you can go, without going back again
Yeah, you know I'm right so shut yer face
I bet you think you know the place
It's just as far as you can go, without going back again
Yeah, you know I'm right so shut yer face
You never listen anyway

It's the way that you're scratching your balls when you walk
You wait till I'm watching the football - and then you talk!
You're never wrong, so bring it on
'Cos you're alright
'Cos I are from Venus and you am from Mars
You buy me panties that don't match my bras
Why so long in the bathroom? Baby I have to
Then it's alright

It's just as far as you can go, without going back again
Yeah, you know I'm right so shut yer face
I bet you think you know the place
It's just as far as you can go, without going back again
Yeah, you know I'm right so shut yer face
You never listen anyway

Smacking you, whacking you, flat out attacking you
Beating you down with my words over you
You're too hot to handle - maybe you're mental
But you're alright

It's just as far as you can go, without going back again
Yeah, you know I'm right so shut yer face
I bet you think you know the place
It's just as far as you can go, without going back again
Yeah, you know I'm right so shut yer face
You never listen anyway




9. Pacific Ocean Blue:

It's OK to beat the living shit from the drum kit
It's OK to take what you don't have, if you want it

That's alright, that's your way
Water's cold, December, Del Ray
Through those eyes, made me cry
And the summer is forever
It's the endless summer

And it's not about your girlfriend
And it's not about your boyfriend
And I'm not about to lose it over you
Remember what I told ya
The night in California
And I'm all about Pacific Ocean Blue

It's OK to leave your jacket on in the ocean
It's OK to sing the saddest song, Vibrations

Thanks a lot, you can be
What you want, honestly
Magic days, golden nights
And the summer is forever
It's the endless summer

And it's not about your girlfriend
And it's not about your boyfriend
And I'm not about to lose it over you
Remember what I told ya
The night in California
And I'm all about Pacific Ocean Blue

I don't need no explanation
All I got is best intentions
I got fears, too much to mention

You're not there, when I'm scared, terrified
Jump right in, the water's fine




10. Distance:

We go the distance till there's nowhere left to go
It's complicated, don't you hate what you've become? Oh yeah!

Running out of luck
Trying to keep it punk
You can only let yourself down
Afraid of what you know
A square shape in a round hole
You know, it goes in tight,
Goes in tight

We go the distance till there's nowhere left to go
It's complicated, don't you hate what you've become?

You're running out of time
You're never going nowhere
The best is all behind you
You're spending your cash like a man with no hands
Keepin' it real like your favourite bands
If they don't try
Then we don't buy, we don't buy

It's the distance, it's the distance
It's the distance, the position between me and you
So stand up, so get up
So stand up, so get up

[SOLO!]

We go the distance till there's nowhere left to go
It's complicated, don't you hate what you've become? Oh yeah! Come on!

It's the distance, it's the distance
It's the distance, the position between me and you
So stand up, so get up
So stand up, so get up

It's the distance, it's the distance
It's the distance, the position between me and you
So stand up, so get up
So stand up, so get up
Yeah, come on!

We go the distance till there's nowhere left to go
It's complicated, don't you hate what you've become? Oh yeah! Come on!

So stand up, so get up
So stand up, so get up

Stand up




11. WDYCAI:

I'm so tired, I need sleep
I'm talking to my pillow case, what's wrong with me?
I make mistakes, but them's the breaks
I'm crying out for anyone to come and rescue me

Talk about a new wave (Whoa-oh, whoa-oh!)
Talk about a way to save the day (Whoa-oh, whoa-oh!)
Talk about a new world
Just not today

Hey there, why you look so sad?
What made you so mad that you can't
You can't get over it
Hey there, why you look so hurt?
You get what you deserve, you know, here we go
Why don't you cry about it?

Life's a bitch, and so am I
If you want it bad enough, there's lots of easy ways to die

Talk about a new wave (Whoa-oh, whoa-oh!)
Talk about a way to save the day (Whoa-oh, whoa-oh!)
Talk about a new world
Just not today

Hey there, why you look so sad?
What made you so mad that you can't
You can't get over it
Hey there, why you look so hurt?
You get what you deserve, you know, here we go
Why don't you cry about it?

Talk about a new wave (Whoa-oh, whoa-oh!)
Talk about a way to save the day (Whoa-oh, whoa-oh!)
Talk about a new world
Just not today

Hey there, why you look so sad?
What made you so mad that you can't
You can't get over it
Hey there, why you look so hurt?
You get what you deserve, you know, here we go

Why don't you, why can't you
So tough when no-one knows you
No homies, so lonely
Why don't you cry about it now?




12. Hi Fi Serious:

Right back at you, record three
Makes you wish that you were me
'Cos we got no job for life
Build 'em up like Frank Lloyd Wright
No two days turn out the same
Only sleeping on the plane
Not exactly Monkey days
C'mon, rock it up, from the back to the front, go!

So get your, so get your ears on
So get your, so get your ears on
'Cos I'm Hi-Fi, Hi-Fi
I'm serious, so come on

So get your, so get your ears on
So get your, so get your ears on
'Cos I'm Hi-Fi, Hi-Fi
I'm serious, bring it on!

Banshee wailing from my throat
Only dogs can hear the notes
Be myself to pay the bills
From L.A. to Skillmans Hill
We've done time for stealing shows
There ain't nothing we don't know
Plug us in and watch us go!

C'mon, rock it up, we're all about to jump from the back to the front, go!

So get your, so get your ears on
So get your, so get your ears on
'Cos I'm Hi-Fi, Hi-Fi
I'm serious, so come on

So get your, so get your ears on
So get your, so get your ears on
'Cos I'm Hi-Fi, Hi-Fi
I'm serious, bring it on!

Hot, like the desert sky
You're so cool on the inside
You hate being recognised
Going off on outside

Gotta get up, gotta get out, picking it up, gotta get up, gotta get out
Gotta get up, gotta get out, picking it up, gotta get up, gotta get out
Gotta get up, gotta get out, picking it up, gotta get up, gotta get out
Got a fever and I want to clear my lungs!

Coming round for one more go
Way too loud for radio
Mosh pit full of casualties
OAP's get in for free
Time to even out the score
Thought we'd done enough before
Now we're kicking down your door

Come on, rock it up, to the back
Measure twice, cut it once
Clear the room, we're barbequeing up for lunch!

So get your, so get your ears on
So get your, so get your ears on
'Cos I'm Hi-Fi, Hi-Fi
I'm serious, so come on

So get your, so get your ears on
So get your, so get your ears on
'Cos I'm Hi-Fi, Hi-Fi
I'm serious, bring it on!

So get your, so get your ears on
So get your, so get your ears on
'Cos I'm Hi-Fi, Hi-Fi
I'm serious, so come on

So get your, so get your ears on
So get your, so get your ears on
'Cos I'm Hi-Fi, Hi-Fi
I'm serious, bring it on!
