Track Name: Rabbits
Rabbits

rabbits....crawling across my ceiling
rabbits...falling from the skies
rabbits...hiding in the dustbins
rabbits...plotting my demise

and they are singing 'la la la la la la'

rabbits.. .chase me through the city
rabbits... crawl through my window
rabbits...tie me to a big tree
rabbits ...will not let me go

and they are singing 'la la la la la '

rabbits...gather round me laughing
rabbits...with sticks poking me
rabbits...squirt shampoo in my eyes
rabbits...claim their victory

and they are singing...
Track Name: Something around a.....
Something Around A...

we set sail on the seas of imagination
Captain William Dread at the helm
we never reach our destination
he changes course at the least distraction
he ragales us with tales
of his adventures wild
but in so much detail
our attention starts to slide

another line?
have another line...

he took us to his base
said his treasures were to share
although they left a bitter taste
no going back once we'd been there

another line?
have another line...

set sail on the seas of confusion...
Track Name: Let's make a bomb
"Would Inspector Sands please report to the operations room immediately"
Track Name: Rats Vs Squirrels (War in Finsbury Park)
Rats vs Squirrels

V1.
Well it started, as these things often do,
Neighbours squabbling over a piece of land
But it soon escalated from a local dispute
Became totally out of hand
Two sets of furry faces
Furiously facing off
Over an overfilled bin
Prepared to fight tooth and claw
For the treasures held within

V2.
The Rats had discovered it whilst foraging
In the still of the previous night
But when they returned they were
Set upon by Squirrels
In the dawn's cold light
When the Squirrels' propaganda machine kicked in
As it always does in this sort of situation
The rights and wrongs
And whys and wherefores
Flew out of the window
In favour of image manipulation

The Rats and Squirrels have gone to war
In Finsbury Park
In Finsbury Park
The Rats and Squirrels have gone to war
In Finsbury Park
In Finsbury Park

V3.
It didn't take long for the word to spread
Through all the woodland folk
Opinions became quite polarised
(Though some thought it all a joke)
The rats were slow to cotton on
Believing they had right on their side
And surely natural justice would prevail
But then they heard the cries...

Rats are stupid
Rats live in drains
There's millions of them
They'll eat your babies
Rats are vicious
They all look the same
Rats spread disease
No one is safe

V4.
The Rats had traditionally kept themselves to themselves
And this had spread ignorance and fear
As all the animals gradually
Fell in line with the Squirrels
The outcome became
Depressingly clear

And I will overlook your war crimes
As they way you nibble those nuts is so cute
And I'll forgive all your atrocities
Because I love your big fluffy tails
And I'll ignore the wholesale slaughter
Because I love the way you hop through the grass
And I will hold you as a hero
As you've destroyed the menace at last

(Now your my saviour)
Track Name: Inner Sun
My Grandad is a punk rocker
he sits around all day
grumbling about someone called Margaret
and how her children are to blame for everything
Track Name: Acid Carousel
Acid Carousel

Cling to the horse
Acid Carousel
Dazzled by the lights
No way to get off

now my mind is made up
And i have to get down
But we're moving too fast
And the world spins around
and around
and around
and around
and around...
Track Name: Oh, Apollo!
Oh Apollo!
he left in the night and he took all the light
Oh Apollo!
he left in the night and he took all the light
Oh Apollo!
heleft in the night and he took all the light
Now we ain't got a Sun
How the crops gonna grow?

Oh Helius!
well he went too
Oh Helius!
he went too
Oh Helius!
he went too!
'we're sick of it all'
said the note in the hall
'you took us for granted, now it's up to you'
