Track Name: Intro
Nerve Centre
Track Name: Right Said Dead
Verse 1:
Baby's gonna kill her
Got her finger on the trigger
Nobody has seen her since last night
Left the bar at twelve
She was told to go to hell
Was feeling real unwell
She started to cry

She can't stand you
We can't stand her
She can't stand her
We can't stand you

Everybody knows but nobody says
How that body ended up dead
She really likes Right Said Fred
They found her body but not her head

Verse 2:
Baby's lying low
In the January snow
Nobody can know
What she's done
The one thing that she'll say
If she's caught along the way
Is nothing's changed
Since she's gone.
Track Name: Shoot The Glass
Verse 1:
I know I can’t tell the truth
Can’t help that my tongue’s so loose
But I’m happy to lie
Just to have a good time with you
I can’t tell right from wrong
I’ll put snakes in your bed so I can get along
And I’ll turn off the light
So I’ll just hear you cry, it’s true

Don’t try to blame it all on me
I see things you can’t see
Don’t tell me how it’s supposed to be
I’ll take my chances and leave
Don’t worry about my frame of mind
It’s all still mine but this time
I will confess there’s not much left
But we’ll see

Verse 2:
I always enjoy nights like these
When I get your girl right down on her knees
She downed some shots
Gave all she got, you see
I know you can’t just let things be
Gonna take myself way down south to the sea
When I hear that bell
We’ll all raise hell, them and me.
Track Name: Bridezilla!
Verse 1:
Bridezilla knows what she wants
So quick, do it quick before she loses that thought
How many times have you heard Bridezilla say
"It's my, it's my, it's my big day!".


Verse 2:
Bridezilla knows what she wants done
If you don't do it feel the wrath of her poison tongue
Bridezilla does not need to say thank you
'Cause it's all about her and not about you.

Middle 8:
She can change her mind just at a whim
But will you sink or swim
The ice below your feet is very thin
Just one little crack and you're in.

Verse 3:
Bridezilla does no sleep at night
And she does not come with a warning light
We're all looking forward to the big day
When the Bridezilla bitch will go away.
Track Name: I Heard It All
Verse 1:
I'm doing what I can with the cards I been dealt
You know it didn't turn out quite like they said
Get well educated, get a good job
From what I can see I'm much worse off

I heard it all again to day
How I just pissed my life away
Yes I know exactly what you're trying to say
Listen up it doesn't work that way

Verse 2:
Don't talk to me as if I'm doing it wrong
The only thing wrong is time and money that's gone
I could have had a holiday or got a new car
This shitty bit of paper's not getting me to far

Middle 8:
It's not all lies
Same happened to a friend of mine
Happens all the time
But that's just modern life

Verse 3:
I'm doing what I can with the cards I've been dealt
Just trying to pay my bills and my rent
Get well educated, get a good job
The hole in my shoe says I'm much worse off
My empty stomach says I'm much worse off
My empty wallet says I'm much worse off.
Track Name: Brown
Verse 1:
Not quite ready to give up trying
When I do I'm closer to dying
I'll get old with the grace of a Rolling Stone
Maybe with you or maybe on my own

It took all the stars in the sky
To say "Man, wasting your time
Maybe you don't need it at all"
All the star turned to me and said
"Hey dude, maybe it was all in your head
Maybe you don't need it at all
Maybe you don't need it at all"

Verse 2:
I remember when we could have had it all
We'd keep going though one by one we'd fall
I'll get old with the grace of a crashing car
It won't be as pretty as a falling star
Track Name: The List Of Things I'd Do To Kim Kardashian Before I'd Follow Her On Twitter
Verse 1:
The awkward moment when Twitter suggests I follow Kim Kardashian
Nobody seems to know what she does or what she's done (except that video)
Beneath six inches of make up there's probably still a hot girl
But there's a list of things I'd do before I'd follow her.

The list of things I'd do to Kim Kardashian before I'd follow her on Twitter
The list of things I'd do to Kim Kardashian before I'd follow her on Twitter
The list of things I'd do to Kim Kardashian before I'd follow her on Twitter
The list of things I'd do to Kim Kardashian before I'd follow her on Twitter

Verse 2:
I'd take you for a walk in Cannon Hill Park, and have you home before dark
I'd take you for ice cream in that place in the Bullring
I'd listen to you talk and talk and talk
About your expensive things and your bullshit bling
Track Name: Karaoke Kings and Queens: Part 2
Verse 1:
Who's this girl by my side
At ten o'clock on a Thursday night
Tell each other how we feel
Who'd have thought that this could be me
And you, you're in the back of my mind
Left you there in Einstein's
Too many night looking like a fool
I'm still in a band so I'm still cool

Woah oh oh, to me
Nothing's as obscene
As our karaoke kings and queens
Woah oh oh, to me
Nothing's as obscene
As our karaoke kings and queens

Verse 2:
Friday morning I'm in work
I hate to say it seem like I've grown up
Said the usual things to her
I can handle the day 'cause my head don't hurt
The kings and queens are in the past
It's where they belong though I had a blast
We had fun when we joined in
It's time for some new kids to sing.
