Track Name: Get A Grip Upon Yourself
Get a grip upon yourself

Get a grip upon yourself those fashion fucks will fill you in and leave you.
Get a grip upon yourself they’ll fill you full of smoke and then they’ll bleed you.
Get a grip upon yourself, you step out on the street better keep your feet or someone’s gonna crush you.
Get a grip upon yourself ‘cos someone else is always right above you.

Get a grip upon yourself you fell between two stools and now they own you.
Get a grip upon yourself they only wanna build you up to stone you.
Get a grip upon yourself they’ll all come bearing gifts then they’ll rip y’all to bits, that’s what they’ve come to.
Get a grip upon yourself they took more than they ever needed from you.

Get a grip upon yourself those bullet-headed boys will never know you.
Get a grip upon yourself the buttons on your clothes will overthrow you.
Get a grip upon yourself you’re outta toys to throw and the worst thing’s we all know just what you’re up to.
Get a grip upon yourself if it’s never dawned on you it’s just about to.

Who loves you? Who loves you, who loves you, who’s gonna love you?
Get a grip upon yourself. Get a grip upon yourself.
Who loves you? Who loves you, who loves you, who’s gonna love you?
Get a grip upon yourself. Get a grip upon yourself.
Track Name: Everything is Strange
Everything is Strange

Everything is strange. Not in frame. And nothing feels the same.
Got you on my mind. Waste of time. And now I’m far behind.

Every acre that I had that I was made to yield.
Oh I torched every blade of grass before I left the field.
I’m living on a garbage heap there’s nothing I won’t sell.
All the perfume in the world could never hide the smell.

Everything has changed. Out of range. And I can’t find my way.
Things that used to work, kissed the dirt. And now it’s all just her.

Fathers chase out dictators their sons will soon receive.
Oh and mothers mourn the ghosts their daughters can’t be made to grieve.
We can’t avoid the blow-by-blow it’s in our eyes and ears.
Suffocating everything inside that we hold dear.

Everything is strange.

I can’t taste a victory and I can’t smell defeat.
I’m sitting in the car with flames licking ‘round my feet.
There was a time I had the chance to become new for you.
Someone shoved it in a bag and off the bridge it flew.

Everything is strange.
Track Name: Amazing Grace
Amazing Grace

I’m flying over buildings baby with the bats on a Sydney night.
I’m putting in my mouthguard honey and my gloves for a title fight.
Oh oh oh I’m lying down with gamblers and getting up with a poker face.
If I can get my act together then I’m hoping for Amazing Grace.

It’s hard to stand up straight in her room with the bodies underneath the rug.
I swear she’s got a reputation as a taxidermist of lost love.
Oh oh oh I swear I’m being poisoned but the doctors can’t find a trace.
If I’m gonna get my drink spiked honey then I hope it’s by Amazing Grace.

She spends her time in trenches with her fists so tightly clenched it's a wonder she can find the time.
Some say she’s stand-offish and be careful she’ll demolish you if you’re fool enough to speak your mind.

Now they’re lining up the street, just to greet.
With the banners and flags in their hands, marching bands.
And somehow everything turned around, and she’s in a crown.
Waving to the crowds as drives past on her way.
Track Name: How Come You Only Call Me When You're Getting High?
How come you only call me when you're getting high?

How come you only call me when you're getting high?
As a kite. As a kite.
Strung out on Oxycontin and what we did last night.
It was the last time, yeah, the last time. Oh the last time. Yeah the last time.

And it's gone, yeah it's getting gone. Yeah it's gone, oh it's getting gone. And it's gone. Gone, gone, gone, gone.

I've cut my hair and now I want you out of my life. Exit stage right. Turn off the light.
All of my friend's tell me I gotta find someone nice.
Somebody who's right. Treats me nice. Somebody who's right. Mmmm treats me nice.

And it's gone, yeah it's getting gone. And it's gone, oh it's getting gone. And it's gone. Gone, gone, gone, gone.
And it's wrong. But it's better wrong. And it's wrong. But it's better wrong. And it's wrong. Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong.

And it's gone, yeah it's getting gone. Yeah it's gone, oh it's getting gone. And it's gone. Gone, gone, gone, gone.

Now I've been drinking and all that I want is to die. Or see you smile. Yeah, see you smile.
I'm down at the bar but I could be at your place in five.
And we can get high. Can we get high? We can get high. Can we can get high?

And it's gone, yeah it's getting gone. And it's gone, oh it's getting gone. And it's gone. Gone, gone, gone, gone.
And it's wrong. But it's better wrong. And it's wrong. But it's better wrong. And it's wrong. Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong.

How come you only call me when you're getting high?
Track Name: I'm The One (Who'll Never Leave You)
I’m the One (Who’ll Never Leave You)

When you walked into the room. I was thinking of some body else’s face.
Now I’m burst like a balloon. And I’m standing, wondering, staring into space.

Oh I’m the one who’ll never leave you. Give me any chance to see you.
Telling every stranger on the road.
I’ve got nothing left to hide now. Only one more thing inside now.
Then you’ll know ‘bout all there is to know.

Everybody leaves too soon. Oh but you arrived too late just for a change.
Now my world is all in ruins. And my friends are helping me forget your name.

I’m the one who’s holding onto faces that I know it’s wrong to.
Gotta find some way to let it go.
There’s no time to mess around now. Spin the wheel or pick a vowel now.
Only way I’m ever gonna know.

There's a place too dark for night. In its streets you give me morning.
When the world has lost its sight we can see without warning.

Oh I’m the one who’ll never leave you. Give me any chance to see you.
Telling every stranger on the road.
I’ve got nothing left to hide now. Only one more thing inside now.
Then you’ll know ‘bout all there is to know.

I’m the one who’ll never leave you. Mmmm
Maybe I should learn to let it go?
There’s no time to mess around now. Spill the beans or take a vow now.
Only one way I’m every gonna know.
Track Name: Pot of Gold
Pot of Gold

You think you’re over them and the damage they’ve done.
Turn on the radio and they visit you in song.
I went searching for a pot of gold. I went searching for a pot of gold.

You rolled me up and you smoked my skin.
Every single nerve cell bears your mark within.
I went searching for a pot of gold. I went searching for a pot of gold.

Put your neck up on the line. When the blade comes you’ll be fine.
Just have nothing on your mind and leave nothing behind.
And don’t expect a sign.

What makes someone do such foolish things?
Chasing something so hard no matter what it brings.
I went searching for a pot of gold. I went searching for a pot of gold.

Put your neck up on the line. When the blade comes you’ll be fine.
Just have nothing on your mind and leave nothing behind.
And don’t expect a sign.

You think you’re over them and the damage they’ve done.
Turn on the radio and they visit you in song.
I went searching for a pot of gold. Got lost searching for a pot of gold.
Track Name: Single Twin
Single Twin

I wanna feel the blood to my head. The space in between the quick and the dead. Uh huh.
I wanna feel the rush and the fear. The bittersweet taste of something so near. Uh huh.
But I feel sometimes like a single twin, no one’s gonna know me like you once did.

Oh and it’s just like I dreamed, to benchwarm in your team. But I know there’s thousands more who’d take my place.
And if the third time’s a charm how come you’re not in my arms? And I’m just squeezing lemons like the rest?

Choices we make well they say such a lot, mine are out screaming from some mountain top. Uh huh.
And picking between the good and the bad is like choosing the least leaky lifeboat I have. Uh huh.

And sure, I want you back. But there’s something that I lack. And I just can’t seem to ever say it to your face.
And so hell proceeds to freeze with the whole world on its knees. In the time we coulda taken it all back.

I want to feel the air in my lungs, stinging my sides the further I run. Uh huh.
I can’t escape the bed that I’ve made it’s like sleeping above the fresh dirt of my grave. Uh huh.
But I feel sometimes like a single twin, knowing there’s a hole that something’s gotta fill in. Uh huh.

And like a fly in a jar I can see things as they are. But no chance to make a difference to my fate.
Oh hi-de-hi, I watch the rescue ship sail by. But it’s fine I’ve grown accustomed to my wreck.
Track Name: Shanie Love
Shanie Love

Drinking so much Cola that my teeth feel like they’re wearing fur coats.
Sleeping in your clothes is fine just keep it to yourself, so close.
And doing time down in the mines is all that you deserve sometimes.

If I could make you just forget every single misplaced step.
I feel sure you would change your mind and stay.

Shanie Love I want to tell you what I’m thinking but the buzzing in my head won’t let me be.
And every day I want to show you that I’m sinking as the ice melts underneath my frozen feet.

I don’t mind being tranquilised as long as there’s somewhere to go.
Pour me in the backseat and I’ll tell you what you need to know.
And sometimes all you’re wanted for is just to even up the score.

Standing in the wilderness, tiny daggers on your dress, who gets lost when they make their getaway?

Shanie Love I want to tell you what I’m thinking but the buzzing in my head won’t let me be.
And every day I want to show you that I’m sinking as the ice melts underneath my frozen feet.
Shanie Love let’s both be thankful for small mercies, if we’re born to drown then we’re not gonna hang.
Just be wary of the friends who say they’re faithful and then draw their knives and make you walk the plank.

I don’t wanna rescue you, shoot me down if I try to.

Why burn down a house of cards when you can be caught off your guard and one breathe can blow it all away?

Shanie Love I want to tell you what I’m thinking but the buzzing in my head won’t let me be.
And every day I want to show you that I’m sinking as the ice melts underneath my frozen feet.
Shanie Love let’s both be thankful for small mercies, if we’re born to drown then we’re not gonna hang.
Just be wary of the friends who say they’re faithful and then draw their knives and make you walk the plank.
Track Name: New Friends
New Friends

I wanna meet some new friends.
With old memories 'cos I can't start again.
Want some new faces and new names.
But I'm way too tired for old stories to explain.
So we'll sit around in bars.
Shooting shit and drinking jars.
But I'll find myself a whole new coterie.

I drove three states in two days.
Just to turn around and go back home again.
Slept in the car on my way.
Dreamed that I went under some suburban train.
Somewhere somebody you see.
Oh is breaking up with me.
And I've come too far not to pass the test.

Let's make a quick getaway.
When everybody has their faces turned.
I wanna lose my place.
And find that i've got nowhere to return.
Living in two worlds at once.
Tried my best but like a dunce.
I just couldn’t play both parts and so I failed.
Track Name: Batman and Robin in Reverse
Batman and Robin in Reverse

Stepping on rakes just for a change.
Looking for a break to come.
You rode by on your pushbike, chewing on your gum.

People say I’m not very bright.
And I’ll not amount to much.
Don’t bother me, not lately, ‘cos they ain’t got your touch.

Don’t let them say every thing we have is gonna burst.
Oh and you and I we’re not working we’re Batman and Robin in reverse.

Jesus H Christ. Unlucky guy.
No one that he could trust.
If only he knew someone like you, it wouldn’t have been such a bust.

Don’t let them say every thing we have is gonna burst.
Oh and you and I we’re not working we’re Batman and Robin in reverse.

I can’t recall life before her.
It’s all covered up with dust.
She’s in my mind, untouched by time and that’s never gonna rust.
Track Name: Mess You Up Good
Mess You Up Good

Your biggest dream in life is to make sense of it. See something you like and take a piece of it.
Cut up someone’s heart to see the way it works inside baby.
Feels like I’m at the wrong table on my wedding night. Sat right next to the cousin with the overbite.
Things have had a habit of turning out for me lately.

Oh they mess you up good. And no amount of flame’s gonna burn that wood.
You gotta speak in tongues just to be understood.
And leaving’s what is needed if you only could.

You only like songs on Grey’s Anatomy. And I’m the one living in a fantasy?
I was once someone who lived their life for you daily.
I’ve been living in a house full of opera stars. But I’m the biggest prima donna of all by far.
Oh I know that it’s over, don’t need a song from some fat lady.

Oh they mess you up good. And no amount of flame’s gonna burn that wood.
You gotta speak in tongues just to be understood.
And leaving’s what is needed if you only could.

Oh they mess you up good. And nothing makes a difference even when it should.
I took a long walk around your neighbourhood.
I couldn’t make sense any place I stood.
