Track Name: Creatures of the night
oh man now we're in trouble, the sun has come along, and it's come to burst the bubble. and i know you know we're all lost, yes we are. but 5 o'clock's early so lets dance until we fall off.

don't you know we're here all night. and what have i got to say to make you know that it's alright. we're all creatures of the night, and i'd say that i'd stop but you no, you no...

I aint gona stop until i get that funky feeling.

when i can hear the bass my feet keep steppin.
and if its gona be a while, lie to me.
i've gone far too long for an early night.
looks like the morning is gona have to wait for me.

when i can hear the bass my feet keep steppin.
and im not gona be going home on my own
so dont give up on me baby, we can let go til the next afternoon.
Track Name: Daily grime
I don't wana be a slave to the wage, they push you down, shove you around in this rat race.
I don't wana say the same thing today, i feel o.k, like suffocation on a good day.
I don't wana be around when you pick it, settle down, you got your own one way ticket.
Long as you got money filling up your back pocket, feeling fine, strapped to the daily grime.

You wana be in a postion of power, take a tip from the top, lay em off on the hour, you got to...
move on up, move on up. It takes a stiff upper lip, not to break down. Fake loyalty just don't cut it, your life don't mean nothing.
Long as you got money filling up your back pocket, feeling fine, strapped to the daily grime.

I don't wana be a slave to the wage,
they push you down, shove around in this rat race, and.
If this is life, then i don't wana, be apart so.
Take me out, string me up and shoot me down.

You want money, you think money makes the world go round, but it aint money.
Track Name: Nightmares
I don't remember, anything just the, constant reminder of these painful things, and i know...that we've got to get out of here, this town is bringing us down.

When you can't leave, and this place leaves you crying, your guts are full of hate but you can't stop smiling. waking up early just to earn your way, now you can't understand all the things that your buying.

I know yeh, another sleepless night, nightmare. this is crazy to me. i know yeh, another chance to make it right, nightmare. this is crazy to me.

I have lost the will to, reside here, under, the tree of life where the fruit runs bare, and i know...we've got to get away from here, this town is dragging us down.

When you can't sleep, your mind won't let you shut down, eyes are open but your dead from the neck down. searching all day try'na find a way, because i find it hard to settle when my head is trying to leave without me.

Now i can't feel, anything, i am, numb to the pain that this place does bring, and i know...we could just run away from here. but this place has dragged us all down.

And now i can't sit still my fingers keep tapping at the window, i swear i'm out there, but i can't seem to face the people. intoxicated, that way that i tend to find the feeling, hard to say it, a harder thing to kick the habit.
Track Name: Procrastination station
I don't know where the hell to go. need somebody o tell me what i already know. things are moving to slow. and it's impossible to ever really know, how and why and where we're meant to go. lets just live our lives and grow.

I bet your...waiting, waiting. for a little inspiration. waiting, procrastinating.

Nothing ever works out right and i'm, pretty sure it rained all night cos i, don't feel good, can you feel it too.
nothing ever works out good and i'm, pretty sure it always should cos i, don't feel good, can you feel it too.

I don't know what the hell to do, is it alright if i sit down here and talk to you. cos man i'm lost. and im not quite sure if we'll ever really know. how and why and where we're meant to go, lets just live our lives and grow.

you know it will work out right.

you must feel it too.
cos it's all for you yeh.
all the things i say i'll do.
Track Name: Old friend of mine
Old friend of mine, voice of a pop star, pretty face, mind for the future. she had a lot to give man, a lot get's better, i feel a little time would'a let her. travel in american, come take your heart away. white lies from a white book. so don't come around here with a smart suit jacket, if i don't listen won't learn, can't have it.

Old friend of mine. well if i don't listen wont learn.

See now she wakes up, with a ring on her finger, baby on her lap and a man down beside her. her friends thought wait. your doing this early. you got years til your thirty! i knew it was too late, you got the forms filled out, now your names in the paper. another medal in the cabinet. for better or worse, part of the family

Take me back, to the day, when we were.
Take me back, please, to the day, when we were good.

So take a look a bit further, find some faith in yourself, there's a prayer house in my home town, if i felt it could help it could be found. i don't wana confide, don't need a new lesson, don't wana let it out, we all get down. i heard a lot better, i heard a lot worse.
can you feel it.
