Track Name: Whisky Disko

Let's go to the Whisky Disko
Tourists take your camera
To the Whisky Disko

The password's boots to the Whisky Disko
It doesn't feel like home in San Francisco
Princes Street and the Falkirk bingo
Fish and chips and doric lingo

There's a seventies room at the Whisky Disko
Sticky floor and a three legged bar stool
The taps are aff on a summer's day
The beer garden's full in the holidays

May Day

Seventies room at the Whisky Disko
Sticky floor and a three legged bar stool

There's a boxing match at the Whisky Disko
Local rivals, Sunday hero
The world is small, ideas are big
Written on the back of a beer-mat swig

Track Name: Art or Crime
Cheating on a sports field
Or fiddling company accounts
Cash in hand for a covers band
Who didn't need to play pop

Is this art or crime?
On the walls of this city
Is this art or crime?
Hot colours getting busy

Is this art or crime?
Chemicals on the concrete
Is this art or crime?
Recorded by CCTV

Karaoke talent shows
Revolving foes
With dreams of grandeur and gold
Lyric sheets not written to a beat
Sold for currency gains

Is this art or crime?
On the walls of this city
Is this art or crime?
Hot colours getting busy

Is this art or crime?
When it's all about likes
Is this art or crime?
When money rules the mind

What happened to this growing number
Who expect to show and wonder
Fast tracked to the top
Recycled till the sales stop

Is this art or crime?
Is this art or crime?
Is this art or crime?
Is this art or crime?

Is this the art of crime?

Track Name: 10K
Too many years of sitting around
You should walk your dog or he'll get sad

Starving yourself it doesn't work
The burn on your legs until your knee jerks

My lungs are on fire
My mind gives up

I'd rather cover this land
In a monster truck

The pressure is on to the finish line
Hills and rivers affect my time

This is not one for the record books
But for life and death and all good looks

I'm getting really bored for the hundredth time
People stare from their cars at the hill climb

Fight
Till you close your eyes
Run
Till you ruin your thighs
Live
Till you see the light
That's life
That's life

Fight
Till you close your eyes
Run
Till you ruin your thighs
Live
Till you see the light
That's life
That's life

Every addiction of the positive kind
Alternative thighs for a healthy mind

Endorphin's flow right to my brain
Eat like the man who ate for fame

Weight goes on and off and
Off and on

Tabs and protein powder
Help you run-on

Water and electrics
Bring out the crowd

From viral markets
On the internet cloud

Chips and connections store the data
Distance, speed and time

Fight
Till you close your eyes
Run
Till you ruin your thighs
Live
Till you see the light
That's life
That's life

Fight
Till you close your eyes
Run
Till you ruin your thighs
Live
Till you see the light
That's life
That's life

Looking for some ladies
Who move their feet
An extra pair of fists
Give it all you got
Like reality stars
On the soap box

Let's live life, bring on the night
Let's live life, get the drinks on ice

Track Name: Alternative Clown
A new alternative comedian
A failed radio star
Edinburgh is calling
The educated fill the bars
From students to old timers
Where the world ends
Standing up for glory
Reputation always on the mend

It's you against the world
Laughing at our souls
It's you against the world
Laughing at our souls
It's you against the world
Laughing at our souls
It's you against the world
Laughing at our souls

Offence is OK
When everyone's in your sights
Street plays on summer days
Everyone seems alright
One to one thousand
Who knows what we'll get tonight
A TV face adds numbers
Unknowns add a surprise delight

It's you against the world
Laughing at our souls
It's you against the world
Laughing at our souls
It's you against the world
Laughing at our souls
It's you against the world
Laughing at our souls

His dark materials
Ban him from the stage
Nobody laughs
When there's morals to pay
There's always Mr Kay
Who likes scones and tax returns
Misunderstood genius
Never seen past the norms

It's you against the world
Laughing at our souls
It's you against the world
Laughing at our souls
It's you against the world
Laughing at our souls
It's you against the world
Laughing at our souls
Track Name: Invisible Lines
I've been around a fair bit
Seen poverty and greed
We have the resources
To make the former leave

From Blackpool Beach
To Tenerife
The Brits
Come out to play

Beggars on the train line
Tourist tax machine time

Beggars on the train line
Tourist tax machine time

Invisible lines
Different lives
Drawn by people
Like you and I

It's the same
All around the world
Rather praise the rich
Than help the poor

How can people be so different
Only a few miles apart
Things that appeal to everyone
Is that really art?

Familiar buildings with big lights
With chain stores underneath
New shanties and no schools
In the land of hopes and dreams

Don't lose your vision
Your style
Your fire
Your people

Your vision
Your style
Your fire
Your people

Your vision
Your style
Your fire
Your people

Your vision
Your style
Your fire
Your people

Beggars on the train line
Tourist tax machine time

Beggars on the train line
Tourist tax machine time

Invisible lines
Different lives
Drawn by people
Like you and I

It's the same
All around the world
Rather praise the rich
Than help the poor

In flight magazines
Are all that they seem
You can't travel anywhere
Without a new thing

A nation state inspires the wanting
Across a waking world
With imaginative infomercials
Where all have little wrongs

Beggars on the train line
Tourist tax machine time

Beggars on the train line
Tourist tax machine time

Invisible lines
Different lives
Drawn by people
Like you and I

It's the same
All around the world
Rather praise the rich
Than help the poor
Track Name: Sober Backwoods Poet
I'm just a sober backwoods poet
On a Bükfürdő slide
My Dog is eating Roshni
Bees use coupons on their hive

Red belly, yellow necks
Barbecuing household objects
Babies climbing trees while their
Mums buy hockey helmets

Pigeons break-dance as the Lion laughs at them
He's thinking of the time he did cheese experiments
Brushing your teeth in a department store
Selling maps to jazz clubs on the kitchen floor

Oooooohhhhhh Aaaaaahhhhhh
Oooooohhhhhh Aaaaaahhhhhh
Oooooohhhhhh Aaaaaahhhhhh
Oooooohhhhhh Aaaaaahhhhhh

I don't know what the man says
He runs around with a chicken on his head
I don't really know how to sing the blues
With sunglasses on and a can of vodka mule
Track Name: Feel Loon did a Wildpoepen

Hey girl, excuse me, I'll get freaky, on this bottle girl
Tonight we get what we want, I'm the drink daddy
This DJ might love me, but baby your frontin'
The way Mr shakes, I know you can feel me
This track is deluxe, cause I'm the bonus dealer
I can't promise tomorrow, on a wild meltdown
Your the sexy secret, drop for my money
Planet play, dammit, my world is my city
Rock the nasty night, your the queen of my story
Party Room, Party Room
Dance through my veins
Grab the good lover, I'm hotter on ice
Everybody, everybody
Ima, oh, somebody, go
Ha-ha Ha-ha Ha-ha Ha-ha Ha-ha Ha-ha Ha-ha Ha-ha

The only reality in this world
Is a place where no phone signal exists
It is here you will find your inner peace
You will see the world like you have never before
Your view will be bigger than any widescreen
The insignificance of mass culture will escape you
Your soul will connect in a natural way
You will open your mouth instead of your thumb
