Track Name: A Simpler Time
Time to start this work again
Moving out to see the end
Back in time to way back then
A simpler time for me my friend

Playing football in the park
Kicking round till it was dark
Some nights were long and boring
We didn't have much to do

Want to go back
I need to go back
I want to go back
I need to go back
Want to go back
I need to go back
I want to go back
I need to go back

Going to call you up
Plug in the phone
Leave you a note if you’re not home
Ancient world of telephones
These simple times
Have come and gone

Going to call you up
Plug in the phone
Leave you a note if you’re not home
These simple times
Have come and gone

Did school reports with my mind
Jeeves the butler hadn't got online
Handwritten letters
Shows that someone really cares

Last survivor from the analogue age
No digital needs to make my day
Or be an information source
For the CIA

Want to go back
I need to go back
I want to go back
I need to go back
Want to go back
I need to go back
I want to go back
I need to go back

Going to call you up
Plug in the phone
Leave you a note if you’re not home
Ancient world of telephones
These simple times
Have come and gone

Going to call you up
Plug in the phone
Leave you a note if you’re not home
Ancient world of telephones
These simple times
Have come and gone

The big bang in black or white
On the council air tonight
The satellite didn't control
The transfer market overload

Flying into the unknown
Word of mouth or a salesman's drone
Singing high and singing low
No levelling out from an auto tone

Going to call you up
Plug in the phone
Leave you a note if you’re not home
Ancient world of telephones
These simple times
Have come and gone

Going to call you up
Plug in the phone
Leave you a note if you’re not home
These simple times
Have come and gone
Track Name: The Curse of the Broken Metal Sword (56K Modems)
What's the secret, we never know
Sailing round with a zombie on tow
The clown bombed the cafe
Must be a Templar conspiracy

Conspiracy
Conspiracy
Conspiracy

The curse of the broken metal Sword
Has totally overtaken me
I'll be sent to the asylum
Where an evil genius waits for me

Fight around the world
Historical mysteries
Play football in Japan
Celery, celery

Plymouth won the Euro Cup
After five glorious seasons
More addictive than drugs
It's hard to manage your life

One more match
One more game
Complete the checkpoint and then hit save

One more match
One more game
Complete the checkpoint and then hit save

We don't work, we don't work
Playing games all day
We don't work, it's OK
I live on Monkey Island everyday

I don't work, I don't work
Playing games all day
I don't work, it's OK
I live on Monkey Island everyday

The ref will never catch me
William Wallace plotted Stirling
Teutonic Knights are solid
Until a bowman fires away

The old west was barbaric
Riding round old Mexico
Going to solve this origami
Arrest a man on Rodeo

Driving round the city
Listening to the radio
Time to pull out the Uzi and
Wait for the police to show

Is the robot who controls my mind
Playing two characters inside
Hooked up to a brainwashing machine
In a virtual reality dream

One more match
One more game
Complete the checkpoint and then hit save

One more match
One more game
Complete the checkpoint and then hit save

We don't work, we don't work
Playing games all day
We don't work, it's OK
I live on Monkey Island everyday

I don't work, I don't work
Playing games all day
I don't work, it's OK
I live on Monkey Island everyday

Just one more match
Just one more game
Complete the checkpoint and then hit save

Addiction with anger
It will never change

We don't work, we don't work
Playing games all day
We don't work, it's OK
I live on Monkey Island everyday

I don't work, I don't work
Playing games all day
I don't work, it's OK
I live on Monkey Island everyday
Track Name: Digital Virus
Darkness coming
There's a darkness coming
There's a darkness coming and
It's eating my mind

Darkness coming
There's a darkness coming
There's a darkness coming and
It's eating my mind

If you’re reading this you’re infected
The virus has got through
Not a Trojan horse or spyware
Antiseptic won't cure you

Mass media support it
Like the lies they sell to you
The once busy streets lie empty
As the landlines fall through

Darkness coming
There's a darkness coming
There's a darkness coming and
It's eating my mind

Darkness coming
There's a darkness coming
There's a darkness coming and
It's eating my mind

This anti-social illness
Is now being carried round
From Southern Californian loneliness
To the palm of your hand

BMI's and laziness
The world ends in bedroom walls
Nature's been rejected but
Wind power will save us all

Darkness coming
There's a darkness coming
There's a darkness coming and
It's eating my mind

Darkness coming
There's a darkness coming
There's a darkness coming and
It's eating my mind
Track Name: Red Eyes and Drawn Blinds
Angry online gaming
Is a fun thing to do
You’re a noob and I just pwned you but
There's things I cannot do

Like hold a normal conversation
Look a human in the eye
The closest thing I've ever done
Is get to level sixty nine

A little white box
With an LCD screen
Planned obsolescence
In a paranoid dream

A little white box
With an LCD screen
Planned obsolescence
In a paranoid dream

Cables and connections
Tie together my life
Maybe one day
I'll get to go outside
Outside

Maybe one day I will go outside and
Roam with all the animals but
I probably won't because that's quite dangerous
Aww I just got an email on my phone
So I better go and check that
Ahh I need to play some games
Download some apps
Check my social skillz
So I’ll BRB playa

It's a wonder to always see things fall
Than work how you wanted it
I'm the Maine man in Oregon now
One percent and I love it

Innovation is moving so fast
It's hard to keep up with anything
Knowledge transfer isn't meant to last
Computer teachers isolate everything

A little white box
With an LCD screen
Planned obsolescence
In a paranoid dream

A little white box
With an LCD screen
Planned obsolescence
In a paranoid dream

Cables and connections
Tie together my life
Maybe one day
I'll get to go outside
Outside

I remember the red eye days
That the fields didn't provide
I can now buy love
With extra shoes on the side

A shake of the hand
As you walk out the door
Your pockets have grown big
But your social skills
Are still in instant messaging

LOL
BRB
WTF
You’re leaving me

LOL
BRB
WTF
You’re leaving me

LOL
BRB
WTF
You’re leaving me

LOL
BRB
WTF
You’re leaving me

Cables and connections
Tie together my life
Maybe one day
I'll get to go outside
Outside

Let’s look at Deirdre's profile
She was in the news today
Rolling her car
It almost fell into the bay

Is she back on it
Or did she hang her head in shame
Plug in the computer
It's only clicks away

Online networking
Is that what we call it?
Twenty years ago
People would abhor it

Breaking into a house
Look at photo albums
Reading your diaries
Tracking your position

In the search for love
Changing world
With half turned off

Send and receive
In the search for love
Changing world
With half turned off

Channels are growing
Conversation has closed
Mouse clicks and keyboards
Make the only noise

Remember the days
When importing was hard
Couldn't buy rare CD's
Or send custom cards

Businesses prosper across the globe
Worldwide client base connected at home
It's easier to find things
Get wiki knowledge

A search engine
Can now be your personal guide
From folding shirts
To living life

It's not all bad
I must be wrong
Information is king
No need to fill out forms

Music distribution is
Not the artist's foil
We can pay for fans and
Sell out Singapore

When an angry nerd
Loves a girl
He'll do anything to find her
Like setting up a global network and
Getting everyone to try it
Millions join his search by
Registering on his website
Spreading the virus but they don't know
The target hasn't subsided
As they continue life and fight it

Send and receive
In the search for love
Changing world
With half turned off

Track Name: A Cynical Mind
Faceless cowards and keyboard warriors
We can't escape you, news travels too fast
Insomnia nightmare, no sleep tonight
Pop-up banners know about my life

A generation of anti-socials
Typing text from a foot away
Medical experts selling us drugs
While Government agents monitor play

Conspiracy theories look over my shoulder
A cynical mind tonight
Conspiracy theories look over my shoulder
A cynical mind tonight

When is stalking normal?
When does privacy occur?
These are the questions
Never asked in the online world

The prince has left us money
From a foreign land
All you need is bank details and
A couple hundred grand

Conspiracy theories look over my shoulder
A cynical mind tonight
Conspiracy theories look over my shoulder
A cynical mind tonight

Wireless children are marketing nodes
Propaganda sent through their telephones
Easy parenting applications
Don't need to be supervised

A cynical mind

A cynical mind

A cynical mind

A cynical mind

A cynical mind

A cynical mind

A cynical mind

A cynical mind

Wire me out, I've given up
Connect me to my doom
An angry head is making me ill
Everyone has followed suit

A cynical mind

A cynical mind

A cynical mind

A cynical mind

Connected mind

Connected mind

Connected mind

Connected mind

Wire me out, I've given up
Connect me to my doom
An angry head is making me ill
Everyone has followed suit

Conspiracy theories look over my shoulder
A cynical mind tonight
Conspiracy theories look over my shoulder

Track Name: Deirdre Van Garcia Berg
D, D, D, D
D, D, D, D
Deirdre Van Garcia Berg

Ten boyfriends in school wasn't enough
Fighting in the playground cause she's so tough
Slapping up teachers in the peaceful zone
Running away from a broken home

Everyone knows a girl called
Deirdre Van Garcia Berg

D, D, D, D
D, D, D, D

Drinking cheap cider on a bench in the park
Love affairs in bushes with dicks in the dark
Roaring down the village and breaking the phone
One of those can never be alone

Everyone knows a mink called
Deirdre Van Garcia Berg

Attention in dark rooms, that's what you want
All need's a golden eight hour love
She likes men in airports with mobile phones
Spending all their money on designer clothes

Everyone knows a will seeker called
Deirdre Van Garcia Berg

The eyes of another you can't resist
Everyone needs to know you exist
The past, present, future will always show
That woman with the name that we all know

That's the last words about
Deirdre Van Garcia Berg
Track Name: Information Overload (WTF)
Information is king
That's what they say
Twenty four hour news everyday

That wasn't enough
Now I want more
The personal life of a media hoor

I'll send them messages
So they can see
How funny and opinionated I can be

I want to know everything
I want to know everything about you
Information overload
This monster breaks through

I want to know everything
I want to know everything about you
Information overload
This monster breaks through

It can't be healthy to fill your mind
With pointless information coming from each side
My temples hurt and my pulse is racing
This data process is taking place in
The sanity of my brain has gone
Nothing new can be spoke upon
It's time to kill this evil virus
All I want is perfect silence

I don't know anything
I don't know anything about you
I don't know anything
I don't know anything about you
I'm the weird one but the monster's killed you
Track Name: Gradual Freedom
The time has come to reset ourselves
A nation turning from hate itself
This cultural cancer is going to die
But the ashes spread out will always fly

A brainwashed child will never change
Brought up in life to love to hate
A sad reflection of a boring past
No answers to guilt just a hollow mask, and

Justice can't be done
When society is run
With an ignorance
Not seen by those
So young
You’re so young

Data protection, it's all been said
Left a trail behind when I'm dead
It's great to be alone now
In the past with a clear head

Full of life, my eyes awake
Walking outside with breath to take
Black and white streets await me
Discoveries are new, and

Justice can't be done
When society is run
With an ignorance
Not seen by those
So young
You’re so young

A single mind
A stubborn type
An old man moaning about the modern life

Be yourself, it’s always best
Slay the monster, let it kill the rest
We're here for you
We're here for you

Be yourself, it’s always best
Slay the monster, let it kill the rest
We're here for you
We're here for you

Be yourself, it’s always best
Slay the monster, let it kill the rest
We're here for you
We're here for you
Track Name: The Music Artist
I'm up all night on this dark wooden desk
Academia deemed me a sorry mess
7am my head lights up the sky
The moon's knocked down as my fingers learn to fly

Cutting down words is the hardest thing to do
The pen and paper won't judge you
Broadcasting thoughts on an idiot's journal
Is not the smartest thing to do

Retiring your mind when the project's done
Dreams of nine to five in a brain-dead slum
The lifecycle of my soul is a happy one

My head's clear now
The power's gone
It's time to turn the computer off
The sea, the sand, the grass, the forest
Is where you'll find me now
Is where you'll find me now

The music artist is an isolated soul
The world around him is not his home
Craving attention has no style
He doesn't care what you think or if he's not worthwhile

Record stores close across the land
The fruit of death has fallen down
Producers of dance are laughing
Mr Al Go Rhythm sorts music out

But he always wins the long fight
Even though he wasn't alright
Appreciated only
When his guitar strings made no sound

My head's clear now
The power's gone
It's time to turn the computer off
The sea, the sand, the grass, the forest
Is where you'll find me now
Is where you'll find me now

My head's clear now
The power's gone
It's time to turn the computer off
The sea, the sand, the grass, the forest
Is where you'll find me now
Is where you'll find me now

The music artist is the biggest hypocrite I know
