Track Name: Run
It’s quiet here where nobody can see me
but all I want to do is be loud
So much is the same in a place that’s changed
year by year it’s worn down
So I head to the south to the city
where dreams are made
but nobody can see a little speck in a big parade

So we’d better Run
Don’t wanna be tied up to this town
Where the hell, where the hell, where the hell is your sense of adventure now?

Everywhere I go in this country
the system tells me to get a real job
cos that’s what you’ve got to do to keep doing what you love
It’s not up to you to decide what I’m capable of

Get in the van, get in the car
pack your bags cos we’re going anywhere as long as it’s far
Let’s take this trip, even though we might fall
If we don’t do this now we might never do this at all
Track Name: Teachers
My teachers always told me ‘You’ve got to have a backup plan’
Don’t worry honey I know the future like the back of my hand
You aint even heard me, no you aint seen nothing yet
I aint gonna get the job done sitting behind that desk

The only thing school taught me was what not to do
I could’ve conformed to your uniform
but I’ve got better things to do

I may not have made my mind up and I probably never will
At least I’m doing what the hell I want and yeah I’m happy still
Life’s this situation that’s always on the move
Sometimes I can’t keep up and feel like I’m going to lose

Dropping out of school was the best thing that I done
I never started learning til I started having fun
Dropping out of school was the best thing I could do
I never started learning til I started breaking rules

I don’t need your rules to tell me what’s wrong and what’s right
I just think and I’ve thunk and I think I turned out all right
Track Name: Remote
Her face is cluttered with headbands and glasses and metal and butterflies
She covers her natural self to make her look healthy with makeup and hair dyes
She says today I will be girly make my hair go curly cos it is the summertime
Looks in the mirror wishes she was thinner darling trust me you look fine

You need to stop reading those lying deceiving glossy magazines
Go out in the sun have fun while you’re still young listen to what music means
You need to stop reading those lying deceiving glossy magazines
Go out in the sun have fun while you’re still young listen to what music means

You boyfriend is not there love is in the air your friends are all you need
Turn off the damn telly get fire in your belly and dance dance please
Now come on honey if life is not funny then why’s everyone laughing
You are all stunning and I’ve got a cunning plan to make you happy

You’ve got a lot on your mind yeah I know so do I
but how will you reach your goals
if you just stay at home?
Pack it in let it go
Put down the remote
Take control
Track Name: Getting Old
Now that I’ve stopped growing I feel like I’m getting old
Life’s not about knowing or doing what you’ve been told
It’s about listening to other people learning new things everyday
So say what you really mean man and leave some time to play

Get off your lazy arse grandma no you’re not dying just yet
Put on your walking boots grandpa you’ve still got further to get
Get off your lazy bum mum you’ve still got a lot to do
Dad get off the playstation and put on your dancing shoes

You’re not as young as you used to be
and you’ve got a few lines on your face it seems
But still you look the bees knees to me embrace
You don’t have to be on your own you know
And I don’t think you need any help
Just a bit of good old laughter
And you can look after yourself
You’re not as sick as you think you are
And most of its all in your head
If you feel like you’re getting old you are
So get the hell out of bed

Everyone knows something you don’t know
So don’t claim to be wiser cos your older
As soon as you start going down that road
You’re just building your own boulder
Track Name: Crazy Woman
crazy woman.
how have you made me so weak
i am a fighter swept off my feet
i was prepared for defeat
but now i've found new strength
i've yet to reach my peak
each time i tried to give you a taste
you'd pretend to swallow it down
then spit it in my face
now i'm left without even a trace
of you ever wanting to change

so i sit back and ignore it
cos i'm just another crazy woman
and as soon as i'm happy and smiling
all is forgiven
but i've not forgotten

cos now every time october comes around
i feel sick inside
and yes my dear next year i fear valentines
it's gonna take a lot for me
to fully trust you again
you're not only my lover i thought
that you we're my best friend

don't get me wrong i could go on without you
but it would be hard and truth is i don't want to
you might not always be the best towards me
but i feel your love
more than i feel love from anybody

so i sit back and ignore it
cos i'm just another crazy woman
Track Name: Things That Make Us Different
One thing that makes us different
Is you like to hunt
Even though you’re already surviving
you’re just doing it for fun
I find you disgusting
Your thirst for blood astonishing
Does it make you feel dominant?

For the purpose of your greed, You breed, then you kill, yeah you kill,
does it hurt when it burns? Or do you not feel?
Well history is against us and traditions hardly on our side
But you’re a fool to think that you could ever stop us saving lives

burn burn burn
Track Name: Walls Come Crashing
If you’re trying to wear me down and tire me out
you’ve got another thing coming so look out
If you’re trying to wear me down and tire me out
you’ve got another think coming so you better look out

I’ll scream
Until the walls come crashing
Scream
Until the walls come crashing

Things could be worse but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be better
Someone please take the rocks from out of my back and replace them with feathers
Cos all that I see in this world is pressure upon pressure
There will always be people that we will all miss forever
Track Name: Dance
Dance.
there's too many pictures she don't know which one to be in
too many pages she don't know where to begin
although the story's got a start she end got the patients in her heart
to wait 'til the pages fall apart

so she's gonna dance dance dance
'til the sun comes up
until she falls down she aint looking for love

there's too many people she don't know who to rely on
too many shoulders she don't know which one to cry on
although she knows she's got her friends
she only met them this weekend
and they are all off their heads

she don't need no helping hand
she don't expect you to understand
she don't need no helping hand
you don't understand
just pass her another can
