Track Name: Jukebox (Stuck In The Swing)
There's a story in all of you
Sometimes one too many
First and last, we dug up the past
Helped ourselves to plenty

Remembered how far
The curtain's up, stage is ours

You can say things are alright
Keep dancing around ourselves
Twisting bodies, twisted facts
Keep dancing around

Never say the same thing twice
That's your only mistake
You never said the same thing twice
Could this be any more fake?

This Earth's like a son
We'll choose the next one

You can say things are alright
Keep dancing around ourselves
Twisting bodies, twisted facts
Yeah things are alright

Stood in the corner waiting for a leader
Backs are turned and we're ready to feed
Stuck in the swing, I like what I see here
You've got what I know I don't need
Yeah we're stood in the corner waiting for a leader
Backs are turned and we're ready to feed
Stuck in the swing, I like what I see here
You've got what I know I don't need

You can say things are alright
Keep dancing around ourselves
Twisting bodies, twisted facts
Help me up off the ground
Twisting bodies, twisted facts
Help me up off the ground
Help me up off the ground?
Track Name: Giving Up The New
There's no goal, none at all
I'll only catch you if you start to fall
In control, in control, out of control
If no-one's here it's 'cos they're all at home

Everything to say and everything to do
Taking up the old
Giving up the new

Spends her time like a parasite
Living her life with a hypocrite
Always be wrong if I say that you're right
Accelerate towards the afterlife

Everything to say and everything to do
Taking up the old
Giving up the new

Leaving all our earthly faults to the gravedigger
Complications that would make a wise man snigger
All we can hope for is to be more facts & figures
Dead on arrival after pulling your own trigger

Everything to say and everything to do
Taking up the old
Giving up the new

Everything to say but there's nothing left to do
Taking up the old
Giving up the new

In control, out of control
Out of control.
