Track Name: Damp Pastes Of Tobacco
... And you said

Please don't change, don't whore yourself out
it makes me feel sick, to the chest
when I see you hanging out
with other girls, that are not me
coz you just moved on so fucking easily

But girl you've got to understand
that this all ended nothing like I planned
and I'm just moving on with my life
Picking up from before I met you
I may have looked strong, but i was breaking down
so how dare you condemn me

But I guess now that's all in the past
After I did everything you asked
It looks like nice guys finish last
And all those memories we had
hanging out at the jetty with your Dad
I guess you just don't understand
How much you piss me off

But I guess now that's all in the past
After I did everything you asked
It looks like nice guys finish last
And now we've lost everything we had
But I'm actually really fucking glad
That I can get on with my life

And just like the spiteful Honey-Bee
You stalk and sting your prey
You thought you landed perfect
but now you're the one in pain
and after all those years and months
I'll never be the same
So go fuck yourself coz you're the one to blame
Track Name: Happy Now?
Am I happy now that i can work
this simple dead end job
and I'll enjoy it while it lasts
Or my time will go too fast
No longer will I try to impress
Jealous friends who always try to
Measure themselves to me
With meaningless degrees

[Chorus]
I don't wanna reach my potential
I'll wind up claiming I'm special
I'll end up in denial
Realize I've lost my smile

If Daddy gives up on his knees
You'll Inherit this families legacy
And there'll be no time to smile and laugh (ha ha ha)
Gaining fathers love's been tough (Too Tough)

I know we had different goals back then
You'll treat me as a rival, friend
Do you think you did better than I?
Because you're living this fucked up lie

[Chorus]

Stop worrying, stop buying
Stop worrying, start trying

Stop worrying, stop buying
The bullshit that they say
stop worrying, start trying
to do things your own way
Track Name: Highs And Lows
...Coz I'm not in a bad place I'm just drunk
Everyone's smashed and the place is trashed
A guy who passed out just sculled a beer
Please get me THE FUCK out of here

Coz i miss civilization and i miss my iPod
I can't wait, to start my security job
Got a medical test on Friday, i'm screwed
A Coffee costs five bucks, how rude
A coffee cost five bucks (A coffee cost five bucks?)

... but at least i still have

[CHORUS]
The nurga, the export, the leading bitches on
The durries, the goon, half the alcohol is gone
Quokkas to do my science with me
Mid Year Rotto is the place to be

The nurga, the export, the leading bitches on
The durries the goon, half the alcohol is gone
The guy next to me just sculled a beer
How did i even end up here?

Woo!

Last night had its high's and lows
Some guy and i we became bros
Tonight has it's lows and highs
Tucker max will be my demise

I've found myself stranded
Twen'ty ks out to sea
So where the fucks the ferry? Coz
Mid Year Rotto will be the death of me
(the death of Me)

Fuck Yeah!
Well at least I still have...

[Chorus]

HOW DID I END UP HERE?

NURGA, EXPORT, LEADING BITCHES ON
DURRIES GOON, ALCOHOL IS GONE
QUOKKAS TO DO, MY SCIENCE WITH ME
MID YEAR ROTTO IS THE PLACE TO BE

NURGA, EXPORT, LEADING BITCHES ON
DURRIES GOON, ALCOHOL IS GONE
THE GUY NEXT TO ME, SCULLED A BEER
HOW DID I EVEN END UP HERE?
Track Name: Reading In A Ribhouse
We've gone too far to turn back now
And you don't want to stand by
But thanks to generations of war
We Made Too Many Bombs, trying to save their lives

And Nothing is as it seems
We've been treated, as machines
And even if you think you've done no wrong
There's been corn in your soft drink all along

And that money that you've spent on your coke
Does little to stop, the farmers going broke
While the government cuts, deals to keep it low
It's all fair game and the consumer doesn't know

But scrutinizing a label, won't save a life
Make friends with a farmer, and his wife
Try reading in a rib-house, maybe you will find
It's only up to you

Scrutinizing a label, won't save a life
Make friends with a farmer, and his wife
Try reading in a rib-house, maybe you will find
It's only up to you, to educate your mind

It's only up to you (to educate your mind)

Educate your mind
Track Name: Blew It
Yeah I've been broken
And I've been a man in need
She could be my potion
But my conscience says it's greed

You can't let a bro down
Even if he's let you down before
But when she's across the ocean
She won't want him anymore

I Hope that you don't have a clue
The shit that she wants me to do
While you're sitting on the phone
Watching foxtel alone

What would you do?
And how would you do it?
Would you say you followed through?
Or would you say that you blew it?
Yeah what would you do?

So put yourself, in my place
Your mates girl's all up in your face
Showing you her underwear made of lace
This chick is a-ddicted to bass

[x2]
Yeah what would you do?
And how would you do it?
would you say you followed through?
or would you say that you blew it?

Yeah What Would you do?
Track Name: Wilson (Parking By The River)
I'll be the first one to admit
That everything just turned to shit
When you, decided that you'd had enough of me

But when you were on the same boat
Struggling to stay afloat
Well i guess, a future must have been hard to see

And I've turned into a fucking monster
Working through a six day roster
Doing everything to show no pain
Doing anything to keep me sane

And though it all ended on a sour note
I'm most haunted by this direct quote
"I'll always be here for you, no matter what"
Well thanks a lot, you fucking forgot!

And so i parked my car in a quiet spot
Down by the river, across from a vacant lot
And it was Just you and me
And an awkward cameo from Paul Haselbee
You said you just wanted to friends
But i still wanted more
Because they say that possessions nine tenths of the law
And you were with me, but you were never really mine
I guess that i never really did toe the line

I didn't plan for this, but i'll be fine
Because all wounds heal in time

But the transition period, oh it's living hell!
Knowing that i'll never wake up to your hairs sweet scented smell

No longer having a companion by your side
feeling like Tom Hanks (TOM, HANKS)
When Wilson was taken by the tide

And when i said you meant nothing to me, i lied
This is no longer an issue of pride
After such a long and bumpy ride
Please don't forget how hard i tried
