Track Name: Pyramintro
La la la la la

... and down to D, oh-oh
and down to C.

When nothing is that fun anymore
And everything's like a chore
You'd better thank your lucky stars every day
'Cos you're lucky to be where you are

What a load of crap! What a load of crap!
Well lucky stars they do not exist
and on them - oh - I would not wish
I hope to my Nan every day that I will get through.

You can't get through
You can't get through
You can't get through
No you can't get through.
Track Name: Puzzle
One
Two
Three

You fit together like a puzzle
You fit together like a puzzle
And there's one bit that don't quite fit
Its got my name written all over it

You fit together like a puzzle
You fit together like a puzzle
And there's one bit that don't quite fit
Its got my name written all over it

I fit together like a puzzle
I fit together like a puzzle
And there's one bit that don't quite fit
Its got my name written all over it

Track Name: We're All Doomed
Oh sometimes I forget that I'm doomed
Oh sometimes I forget that I'm doomed
I wake up and daydream, yeah
To forget I'm doomed
I wake up and rush around, yeah
To forget I'm doomed

Two three four GO!

Me and John look at the stars
And it hurts our heads and breaks our hearts, yeah
Me and John look at the stars
And it hurts our heads and breaks our hearts, yeah
We are dots always remember
We are dots always remember
This will make you happy happy
This will make you happy happy, oh

We wake up and daydream, yeah
To forget we're doomed
We wake up and rush around, yeah
To forget we're doomed
There is nothing more certain in anyone's life, you know

We wake up and daydream, yeah
To forget we're doomed
We wake up and rush around, yeah
To forget we're doomed
There is nothing more certain in anyone's life, you know

GO!

Me and John look at the stars
And it hurts our heads and breaks our hearts, yeah
Me and John look at the stars
And it hurts our heads and breaks our hearts, yeah
We are dots always remember
We are dots always remember
This will make you happy happy
This will make you happy happy, oh!
Track Name: Sea Shanty
Blossom's on the apple trees again
I don't mind, I don't mind
Left mine behind and I planted it when I was nine
I don't mind

And the rapeseed
It grows longer every time
Every time when I go home
And it scares me how quickly time does go

And I know someday I'll wake up
I'll wake and you'll be gone
My Mum and Dad too
Whatever will I do?
I know that I'll be...

A lovely apple tree
I don't mind, I don't mind!
Yes a lovely apple tree
I don't mind, I don't mind!

Blossom falls and turns to dust and mud
I don't mind, I don't mind
Creatures there they crawl amongst my hair
I don't mind, I don't mind

And the rapeseed
It grows longer every time
Every time when I go home
And it scares me how quickly time does go

And I know someday I'll wake up
I'll wake and you'll be gone
My Mum and Dad too
Whatever will I do?
I know that I'll be...

A lovely apple tree
I don't mind, I don't mind!
Yes a lovely apple tree
I don't mind, I don't mind!
Track Name: Perception Is A Funny Thing
Perception is a funny thing
It make you think you're really good when you're really quite shit
Perception is a funny thing
It make you think you're really shit when you're really quite good

And it all depends on where you stand
On the inside or outside of the band
And you think that you see clearly
But there's smudges on your glasses and you can't see

Oh no, oh can't you see?
Oh can't you see?

We're overrated! No no, we're underrated!
It depends on your view, you see.

We're underrated in our opinion! No no, you're overrated in our opinion!
It depends on your view, you see.

I hate nightclubs and the flase eyelashes
The boring music and the Topshop dresses
The fashion victims that pretend to be
Something other than themselves.

We'll never know what we really look like
And we'll never know what we really sound like
The lamppost is taller than the hill
All depending on whereabouts you stand.
Track Name: Turn To Grey
Tired and disappointed
Its been so very long
And I can't even try
And I don't know why
I'm filled with disappointment

Lullabies are not comforting
Focusing so much on going to sleep makes you awake
This theory applies to everything
Ignore our problems
We'll turn to sleep
We'll turn to grey

Turn to grey
We'll turn to grey
Turn to grey
We'll turn to grey

Tired and disappointed
Its been so very long
And I can't even try
And I don't know why
I'm filled with disappointment

Tired and disappointed
Its been so very long
And I can't even try
And I don't know why
Its the been the same for years.
Track Name: Sherlock Holmes Is Better Than You
I have a forgettable face
And this comes in handy sometimes

I know you feel sorry for me
But I'm not as predictable as I seem
Not like you, Mr-Cup-Of-Tea, Mr-Radio-Times
Mr-Same-Set-Of-Friends-That- You've-Had-Since-You-Were-Five

You live in your Victorian world
Well I'm here, I'm now, and I think about tomorrow
You just sit there in that chair
La la la...

Woman's Own is a source of fact and fun
And Tracy Barlow kicks arse (she does, you know)

I know you feel sorry for me
But I'm not as predictable as I seem
Not like you, Mr-Cup-Of-Tea, Mr-Radio-Times
Mr-Same-Set-Of-Friends-That- You've-Had-Since-You-Were-Five

You live in your Victorian world
Well I'm here, I'm now, and I think about tomorrow
You just sit there in that chair
La la la...

Conan Doyle would like me better than you
Because I'm nice, and because I believe in fairies
Not like you, la la la... you don't believe in anything, la la la...

Me and Holmes are better than you
We've got real important things we have to do
And you don't compare to Sherlock Holmes
And don't you compare me to that girl

Me and Holmes are better than you
We've got real important things we have to do
And you don't compare to Sherlock Holmes
And don't you compare me to that girl
Track Name: Where Nobody Knows Your Name
Where has all the fun gone?
Long time passing
Where has all the fun gone?
Long time passing
Its blowing in the wind, my friend

I am seriously bored now
The chimneys are crushing me
I can't leave the house now
Hiding under the covers now

I am seriously bored now
The chimneys are choking me
I can't leave the house now
The news is too sad now

Where has all the fun gone?
Long time passing
Where has all the fun gone?
Long time passing
Its blowing in the wind, my friend

I am seriously bored now
The chimneys are crushing me
I can't leave the house now
The news is too sad now

I am seriously bored now
The chimneys are crushing me
I can't leave the house now
When I walk home from work now
I can hardly breath now

Why can't life be like that film?
Track Name: Celebrate Ourselves
I'm jealous of those people
Who are better at things than me
I stabbed my friend in the hand
Because she could write her name before me

And I'm, I'm not
No I'm, I'm not
No I'm not jealous of everyone, no I am not
I'm not jealous of everyone, no I am not
Some people aren't better than me and I know this 'cos I can see
Some people aren't better than me and I know this 'cos I can see...

All the websites for the needy today
'Fessing all their sins to everyone, today
I had an abortion today... I baked a cake today... I walked the dog today...

I'm jealous of those people, who are a success by the age of twenty one
You know, the kind of people who are class at getting things done

Well I'm, I'm not
No I'm, I'm not
No I'm not jealous of everyone, no I am not
I'm not jealous of everyone, no I am not
Some people aren't better than me and I know this 'cos I can see
Some people aren't better than me and I know this 'cos I can see...

All the websites for the talentless today
'Fessing all their sins to everyone, today

Celebrate ourselves
let's celebrate ourselves
let's celebrate ourselves
let's celebrate ourselves
Track Name: I Wish I Was A Robot
Well I left at the right time
Only had five minutes to spare
And I'm driving down the road
In my brightly polished car
Without you

So its goodbye
Goodbye
La la la

You don't love me
You make me ugly
And oh oh!

So I decided to live alone
And I'll never get hassle again
Well I wish I was a robot
Then I wouldn't love you like I do

So its goodbye
Goodbye
La la la

You don't love me
You make me ugly
Oh oh!
I annoy you
and I bore you
You think I'm crazy
and I am over you!
