Track Name: Gigabot
We can see you in the dark
Hiding in the trees, rebuilding parts
When you get up off the ground
You can see what you like when we show you around

Oh Gigabot you've travelled many light years to be right here
You were off the coast of Maine when you crashed into the sea
We can grow old together and we'll watch you turn into rust
And by the time that has happened our lives will return to dust

You look just like tiny ants
How on earth do you tell one another apart?
Yet each one appears unique
A chance encounter made you who you are

Oh Gigabot you've travelled many light years to be right here
You were off the coast of Maine when you crashed into the sea
We can grow old together and we'll watch you turn into rust
And by the time that has happened our lives will return to dust

[mosh part]
Track Name: Children Of The Cron
What did I do?
To get trapped
In 3 dimensions
And another: time

Ahhh

Try as we might, but we cannot escape your control
We try to escape, but we stay and we do as we're told

We shall rise
From the dead
To breathe life
And clear our heads

Ahhh

Try as we might, but we cannot escape your control
We try to escape, but we stay and we do as we're told
Track Name: Asleep At The Switch
I know what I want to do
Sit in front of people, tell them what to do
I think I know what's best for them
It is good for me, so it is good for you

You want to go there and I want to take you there
But I wasn't sleeping at the switch

Many years have gone before
Now I'm older, and I have found out more
I have changed to fit the crowd
I know I have the key, so let us go and see

You want to go there and I want to take you there
But I wasn't sleeping at the switch

[middle]

You want to go there, I want to take you there
But I wasn't sleeping at the switch
Track Name: The Idiots
Many years I met them all
Playing out on tiny fields of green
And if I told you, the tea and toast crew
Like to lie outside and stare up at the sun

It's the simple things you take
Like final vinyl playing on the deck
And if I told you, the turf to go to
Open up the gate and let us in

Everybody's got to be from somewhere
As I look out of the window at the sky
Everybody's got to be from somewhere

But nothing lasts forever now
Cross the ford and leave for distant lands
And if I told you, that we're all old now
There's plenty more in line to take the crown

Everybody's got to be from somewhere
As I look out of the window at the sky
Everybody's got to be from somewhere
As I look out of the window at the sky

[acoustic mosh part] ahhhhh...
Track Name: Information Retrieval
Information gives you power
Retrieval charges by the hour
Some is under lock and key
Send the plumbers, we can see

You can send us in the dark
Open secrets kept apart
Please don't tell another soul
Don't record what you don't own

In the end you find it hard to take
But you had the breaks, and now they're gone
Now that we can't help you any more
You broke the law, and now we quit

Ahhhh
Track Name: One Two Three Four
Long time ago
I saw some things
I would not touch
For what they bring

You saw the goat
I did not see

Long time past
By my maths
It's now future
Those things have passed

You saw the goat
I did not see
Track Name: Brain The Size Of A Planet
Sometimes the smaller things seem bigger close up
Sometimes the deadly sins, they don't add up
Look at the tiny village where you grew up
Look at all the week's days, then add them up

Why should I quit now?
Just when I'm hating it

Sometimes a minor argument can seem a big deal
Why don't you ask small children to see how they feel
Sometimes I'll write my thoughts down to see they make sense
Sometimes you'll pay to read them, but only for pence

Why should I quit now?
Just when I'm hating it
Track Name: Getting Up Is Never Easy
I get up in the morning, to go to work after nine
I'm playing my cards and doing my time
One day I hope, that I'll be released
Who was it that said that work sets you free?

Getting up is never easy

But time is not money, so I'm going to clock off
To spend more time with the people who care
Live slow and die old, if you see what I mean
If we like it or not our livss will go on

Getting up is never easy
Track Name: Change My Mind
How can I tell if my thoughts are all straight?
It's been the same since I came through the gate
I see you here and I think you're all right
But you only seem to visit at night
The management is getting right on my back
I think the people are about to attack
I see them coming and they're heading this way
And yet I haven't even eaten for days

I like to get out and go for a walk
Please come and visit, I think we can talk
Don't want to play cos I think I will choke
I'm going to drown if I get in the moat
I wish now I could just change my mind
I had a set back, I was getting behind
One day I'll leave then I'll never go back
And now you're closing so there's no chance of that

I don't know what is happening to me
x 4

Repeat second verse and chorus
Track Name: Metal Detector
You are searching for what you might find
The right notes that you want to hear in your mind
Uncover some new sounds
Straight from the earth, buried beneath the ground

You can't see me
You can't hear me
I am your record selector
I am your metal detector

Try to make some for your self
A home made recipe that comes right off the shelf
DIY, it is the plan
Look at me, I'm playing these chords with my hands (and I'm not in a band)

You can't see me
You can't hear me
I am your record selector
I am your metal detector

[middle]
[solo, of sorts]
Track Name: The Road
Fill the bathtub, boiling hot
Slip right in with what you've got
Take a moment to try and think
We all bear crosses, some not so big

Consider me, spores in my head
Climbing higher before I'm dead
Driven insane by fungal prey
Death grip takes my life away
