Track Name: I'm Dead
I have thoughts therefore I am but what's the meaning of this life?
Life itself is cyclical as sure as day turns into night
I'm no more important than a tree, a worm or even dirt
'Cause it's just dead stars forming all the particles that make the earth

Living seems so special when you're caught up in the patterns
You can pretend but in the end nothing really matters, when...

Chorus:
I'm dead, you're dead
He's dead, she's dead
And if we're dead then they're dead
Don't care what they said 'cause I'm dead

The universe is scary big and there's an awful lot of time
Travel at the speed of light and you could outlive humankind

But death must be a victory if life is how you win it
I have seen the future, babe, and none of us are in it because...

Chorus

Amy Winehouse and Monroe, Robert Johnson, Brian Jones
Che Guevara, Jimmy Dean on the cover of a magazine
Grace Kelly, Basquiat, Warhol, Michael Jackson, Shirley Temple
Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain, Miles Davis, John Coltrane
They had style now they're dead, Freddie Mercury gave good head
Hendrix and John Lennon too, Chrissy Amphlett we loved you
Eazy E had attitude, Elvis ate a lot of food
Einstein and Marx knew how to do it, let's get dead there's nothing to it
Dead
I'm dead

Chorus
Track Name: Ho, Ho, Ho!
This song ain't 'bout no gardening
No digging up soil, yo
That's not the intended meaning
When I be sayin' "Ho"

And I know what you're thinking
But you don't even know
'Cause I ain't talkin' 'bout ladies
When I be sayin' "Ho"

It's about that festive spirit
About this dude I know
Who was sent down from the heavens
To make us all say "Ho"

Chorus:
"Ho, ho, ho!" it's Santa, yo
Chilling at the north pole
In the ice and the snow
Jesus was his little bro
Every year they celebrate
Christmas eve, save the date
They do Coke and stay up late
To bring us presents, I can't wait

Santa Claus can get things done
Everybody knows he's number one
So damn fast it make you shiver
Say the word and he'll deliver
In a suped-up flying sleigh
That spans the world in just one day
Down the chimneys through the doors
Never once does Santa Claus
Pause 'cause god's his dad
Born before the Jesus fad
Big white beard just like his father
Don't believe me if you'd rather
Take as read that family tree
A shadier elm I've never seen
Who's Santa's mum? It's anyone's guess
It could be you, but I digress
It took Santa seven days
To build the earth and the suns rays
Santa used his super powers
Made the trees and all the flowers
He made me and he made you
Wrote a list about us too
It's all scientific fact
Nobody else could do all that
If asked "Do you believe in Santa?"
Best think twice about your answer
You may pay the greatest price
He decides who's naughty or nice
So bow down low and beg forgiveness
From our saviour father Xmas
Jingle bells and off he goes
Santa Claus says "Ho, ho, ho!"

Chorus
Track Name: Nasty Accident
You're gonna cause yourself a nasty accident motherfucker
You're gonna cause yourself a nasty accident motherfucker
A nasty accident you'll cause yourself
When you're driving down the street with no concern for your health
I said
You're gonna cause yourself a nasty accident motherfucker

You'd better find yourself a space to park the car motherfucker
You'd better find yourself a space to park the car motherfucker
You'd better find a space to park the car
Or you're gonna have to walk too fucking far
I said
You'd better find yourself a space to park the car motherfucker
Guitar!

You're gonna cause yourself a nasty accident motherfucker
You're gonna cause yourself a nasty accident motherfucker
A nasty accident you'll cause yourself
When you're driving down the street with no concern for your health
I said
You're gonna cause yourself a nasty accident motherfucker

Track Name: Meat Nightmares
Gorging on pork and beef
Meat nightmares in my sleep
Track Name: Time Is Thru
When you love somebody but your time is through

It's so hard to fight it so I write it
This feeling welling up inside, though I try to hide it
Keeps spilling out of me
So I need to vent, to end the torment
Of knowing all we dreamed of will never be
It hits with such gravity
I lose my clarity
And visions of the future are full of such uncertainty
I put all my heart into this ark we built together
And for it to fall apart is a dark storm to weather
As the rain floods in it cascades down my cheeks
This emotion, this devotion in a vessel full of leaks
But I must try not to cry
To rearrange the thoughts inside my mind
Caught with a bind
That now needs to uncoil and release me
From this inner turmoil that seems to defeat me
It takes time to process confusion and sadness
As the grounding of love crumbles and you tumble down
It takes time to climb back out of the hole
And realise some things in this life are sadly out of our control

When you love somebody but your time is through

It's been 3 days and I need you
To hug you
To feel you in my arms again
Just like it was back when
Your smile would set off my endorphins
Now when I see you my nerves need you
Like an addiction to your touch, your scent
My heart, my bones, my muscles and my tendons
All cling to you and ache for you
Begging you not to end it
There's memories and mysteries of where we'd go and who we'd be
They're locked inside of my body
It's painful now to set them free

When you love somebody but your time is through

From my bed the empty space on the shelf in my room
Reflects the sense of loss I feel whenever I think of you
Your things would nestle in that place on the shelf
But too soon they are gone
When inside I still feel love for you
It still goes through my head
So much stuff to work through
Before I write the next chapter and embrace something new
It's so hard to let go when our bond seemed so true
Thought I knew but you flew from my arms
What to do?
When you love somebody but your time is through
When you love somebody who can't give love back to you

When you love somebody but your time is through
Track Name: How Much Blood?
How much blood will there be?
When I died how much blood was there?
Would it drip from my eyes? from my veins?
How much blood is there when you come home from work?
How much blood will there be dripping out from me?
Spill my blood
Will I die?
How much blood?
How much blood?

How much blood could you get from a cat?
If you chopped off it's face, how much blood come from that?

How much blood would come out of your eye?
If you levered it out just to see what's inside

How much blood does a heart pump a day?
7,000 litres or so they say

How much blood in a big train crash with 37 dead and all covered in ash?

Blood is life
Blood is death
There's more blood where that blood came from
Not much point to this life
To this death
How much blood would you like to see spill from me?
I'll show you all my blood one day
Not today
That's my blood, not your blood and you can't have none
Blood!
Blood!

How much blood could you get from a stone?
None at all, I once tried it at home

How much blood would come out of a girl at that that time of the month?
Just a teaspoon I've heard

How much blood in a mosquito as you squash it dead as it's biting yo?

How much blood will there be when I died?
When I slit both my wrists in a suicide

Now I'm dead
I'm at peace
How much blood will I be needing?
Not much blood, I should think
No more blood is left inside me
All blood gone
No more life
I thank you
How much blood did I used to have?
I don't know
I don't care
All my blood gone now
Track Name: #yolt
I've got a problem with humanity
Everybody seems to be waiting for something that won't transpire
If you are living only for the end
I've got news for you, my friend
One life is all we have, then we expire
There is no supernatural entity looking down on you and me
Judging us on how we live our lives
It's up to you to judge yourself
Not the job of someone else
Look into your heart
Open your eyes

Chorus:
You only live twice in this world
Live twice in this world
Once in your body
Once in your mind as you die
You only live twice in this world
Live twice in this world
All the crucial moments
They will flash before your eyes

I could have made this song about yolo
One life is all you'll ever know
But maybe there is more to it than that
If you are doing only selfish deeds
Caring not for others needs
Deep down you must know that you're a rat
It's not a race
Don't be competitive
Demand less take
Supply more give
Find out for yourself what's wrong or right
When you look back upon your life
You'll hate yourself if you've caused strife
So be a source of happiness and light

Chorus
