Track Name: Part of the Problem
Part of the problem

I came in from the east
just followin' the jobs
My only loyalty's
my children's hungry mouths

I work twelve hours a day
and six on Sundays
and I'm still waitin' for my free house

If you're not part of the problem
you gotta be part of the solution
and you know what that solution's gonna be
The school of hard luck
has taught you sweet nothin'
You got your foot in the door
now you're slammin' it shut on me

People over here
stop you fishin' in the river
They seem to think it's wrong
if you eat the fish

They don't like the way I look
when I'm walkin' down their street
I wish they'd just leave me in peace

CHORUS

Angles, Saxons
Romans and Normans
Huguenots, Irish,
Jamaicans, Indians

They're all quite different
but they've got one thing in common
They hate us just because they got here first

CHORUS

My wife was shot dead
by a twelve-year-old boy
So what do I care
which side he was on?

I just try live my life
keep my head down, do my best
not to look into the eyes of anyone

CHORUS
Track Name: Chain smokin' Jane
Chain-smokin' Jane

You bin peepin' through the keyhole
causin' a commotion
You bin rockin' the boat
'n' you bin drinkin' the ocean
Always walkin' home alone list'nin'
to the inner voices bitchin'
You're complainin' 'bout the state of things
smashin' ev'ry plate in the kitchen
gettin' ev'rybody's head in a mess
because ev'rything to you is a test

You're evil – pure evil
You're nothin' but a pain
Chain-smokin' Jane

Seen ya leanin' on the window sill cryin'
with a fist fulla pills you're not dyin'
an' you prob'ly never will
Standin' out in the rain chain-smokin'
throw your butts in the drain
playin' games but I ain't jokin'
'cause you're goin' insane

CHORUS

You got the eyes of Laura Mars
you're getting' into a stranger's car
you've gone too far
and they're gonna run you outa the town
because you're turnin' the milk sour
with your tape goin' round takin' names
I shouldn't have to explain

CHORUS

You're playin' a dangerous game
(chain-smokin' Jane)
to get your face in the frame
(chain-smokin' Jane)
you left your hand in the flame
you're takin' pleasure from pain
you know you're sendin' all your brothers
and your sisters and your friends insane

CHORUS

Saw you stirrin' it up stir it up
girl in your broken cup
you're lookin' fine but inside
you know you're all washed up
it's just a matter of time
before somebody's gonna catch you up
catch a train chain-smokin' Jane

CHORUS

You better take the next train
(chain-smokin' Jane)
and never come back again
(chain-smokin' Jane)
you'll find fortune and fame
or you'll find someone to blame
chain-smokin' Jane.
Track Name: TV DNA
T.V.D.N.A.

I wake up in the mornin’ I feel like a saint
I’d like to teach the world to paint but I ain’t got the paint
I wanna telephone the party that never stops
and get smashed out of my head on coke-o-pops

‘cause I’m a beer-swillin’ football genius
and I’m comin’ to your town
I’m a serial-killin’ Jesus - drivin’ around

‘Signs of intelligent life on Mars’
(they say they’ve got cable and it’s better than ours)
‘Local man sees the face of God - in the middle of a cheese cob’

Just got the letter I’ve been waitin’ for
it says I’ve been selected for a free prize draw
There’s a zingy tang of citrus in my guts today
I went to see the spin-doctor - he said I was feelin’ great

‘cause I’m a coke-sniffin’ lynch-mob journalist
and you need to know this
I’m a red old-fashioned ‘phone-box - stinkin’ o’ piss

I’m a James Dean look-alike - ridin’ on a motorbike
doin’ what the fuck I like - smokin’ Lucky Strike
and I’m drinkin’ TNT - you better not mess with me

The nation buys a crate and sits and waits with baited breath
for famine, war, pestilence and famous breasts
sex and death live on the net for a buck
there’s thirty-seven porn channels - all of ‘em suck

‘cause I’m a gun-totin’ robot master-race
and I don’t like your face
I’m a baby-stealing gypsy - an escaped mental case

I’m a champagne starlet lying on the carpet
passed out, pissed up, pewking up scarlet
the last thing that I see - is some fat guy takin’ pictures of me.
Track Name: Clone Town Blues
Clone Town Blues

Misguided information
Misleading get out clause
Requests and frustration
misspelt on subway walls
Ignore all the warnings
Fail to heed the news
I woke up this morning
With a bout of clone town blues

Chain stores and petrol prices
save me the time
I can't afford to visit your town
but it's probably just the same as mine

Sponsored imposition
Beware the outstretched hand
A no-win competition
to sell out to a global brand

Passerby friction
Fashion sense despair
Unexplained addiction
to loose fit leisurewear
Chorus

Weekly Monday morning hating
Freedom bid farewell
Downbeats on street corners waiting
sandwiches in hand

Lifts to hell – Lifts to hell –

Radio phone in
I was just about to ring
A live debate on cloning
with an ad for Burger King
Too late to call in favours
Escape remains unplayed
Not by nosy neighbours
and the been there done that brigade

Chorus x2
Probably just the same as mine x4
Track Name: Trash
Trash?

You say I’m trash
but I’m forced to disagree
It’s just the trashy things
you’ve done to me

You say I’m washed up
Well, maybe
but it’s only since
you washed your hands of me

I shot my dog
the day you left me
because his eyes
reminded me of you
I burned our love letters
on the fire
that I started
in the middle of your room

It just takes whiskey
to make a man out of a mouse
It’ll take an army
to drive me from this house

It’ll take more than the court
to make me pay your child support
and more than one bullet
to keep me from your door

‘Cause if I find you
I’m goin’ to kill you
And if that’s trash well then I’m trash
but ask yourself what for?

CHORUS
Track Name: Drinking with Mr D
Well I have lead an evil life as you know
I've packed my suitcase and my trunk
I call any old port in a storm my home
And the cold ground that's my bunk

I Know you don't like me drinking all alone
You told me so
But I Wasn't listening
I was drunk

Oh no love
I would not drink alone love
I've been drinking with the Devil

I gave my ex-wife a hard time when I was with her
And I still do it now from force of habit

Iv never caught a glance of a chance of something better
But if I did I guess I'd grab it

So here's to good friends
And better times
I've had my share
Now I've found the Level

Oh no love
I would not drink alone love
I've been drinking with the Devil

Some sweet day I might fall in love
Lets say with you
Just for examples sake

I'd gladly decline the bitter fruits of the vine
And a fine peach I would take


So here's to good friends
And better times
I've had my share
Now I've found the Level

Oh no love
I would not drink alone love
I've been drinking with the Devil

All of these pipe dreams
All my mis-guided schemes
Mis-laid plans of mice and men

I understand a helping hand
Is within reach
But not for me
That's why I'm reaching for the bottle once again

So here's to good friends
And better times
I've had my share
Now I've found the Level

Oh no love
I would not drink alone love
I've been drinking with the Devil

Oh no love
I would not drink alone love
I've been drinking with the Devil
Track Name: Why can't i choose my love?
Why cant I choose my love?
Why must I have you?
When your the worst person in the world for me! World for me!
When your the worst person in the world for me! World for me!

Your politics are dodgy
And your sense of humours funny
You don't even want me
So why must I want you so much honey?

Why cant I choose my love?
Why cant I get to pick the right one?
How do I work this trick?
It wasn't you I set my sights on.

Why cant I choose my love?
Why must I have you?
When your the worst person in the world for me! World for me!
When your the worst person in the world for me! World for me!

Why cant I choose my love?
Why am I always stuck with you?
In my head instead of you
In my bed

I never come out of my stories
With any credit at all
I don't even come out with you
You treat me awful and I keep coming back for more

I don't believe it
But its true

The stars above and the heavens above
The moon above and the lord above
Look down and shrug

Why cant I choose my Love?

The stars above and the heavens above
The moon above and the lord above
Look down and shrug

Why cant I choose my Love?

Why cant I choose my love?
Why must I have you?
When your the worst person in the world for me! World for me!
When your the worst person in the world for me! World for me!

Why cant I choose my Love?
Why cant I choose my Love?
Why cant I choose my Love?
