Half Life 02:55
It's a half life going up Alright, it's a half life A half life going down again It's a half life Take a deep breath count to ten Jump off, do a jack-knife You're halfway to the next place Fall and you land In a half life Let it go Some men go and go Right off from the start Others turn and fall into the sky Some men wait to take the hammer blow The hammer falls, shall we close out eyes And fall where we land We land where we land In a half life We land where we land

The Buzz 03:32
Do not tell me you are beaten I was beaten long before you Do not say how you are weakened We're all weakening each day we're in here Go now show us it's electric How with all this electricity out here Where it rises up concentric Where it rides heliocentric Where it rises over us They've been beaten back on Broad Street They'll be beaten by the buzz No don't show us where it deepens There are demons in the sky Pull your hair back off your shoulder I have looked over your shoulder We have waited for some time They were beaten back on Broad Street They'll be beaten by the buzz Now we're warm inside out blankets Now you're warm inside of us

Daytime TV 03:48
There's here, there's this And not to be remiss there is everything that exists It exists on daytime TV I fall into the scene Lifelike I live onwards behind the screen Every day, it gets the better of me Now I see the postgirl Carrying her letters The golden sun unfurling all its petals But no she won't stop Letters to stack and drop Somewhere better than this There's always somewhere better than this Look at that Pelican He's always harbouring something Like us Americans Always harbouring something We're always harbouring something But on daytime TV we're just passersby Like golden jets across flats of alkali With our golden girls, we are golden guys We roll like holy rollers And I'm a big baller, Not a dude with a stroller And now I'm five inches taller I've got a houndstooth coat And I pop up the collar and go It's OK to want to wash that grey Only $9.95, just give a call today Professional driver zooming down the track Take the blue pill to get your life back Fibre schmibre taste is where it's at Get the fish flavour if you want a happy cat More fresh and minty than all those other brands Nothing is as friendly as our own tar sands Look ten years younger Beat world hunger These wipers are the shizzle For the lightning and the thunder It's a new solution for air pollution Join us in the ranks of the mascara revolution

Contact 04:15
Night when the lights peering into the dark Over our yard and over the yard Time when the lights reappeared in the dark Over the air and over our bodies they come Oh for our bodies And wait till the silence draws over our beds Over our heads and over our heads Sight down a line moving over the wood Over our hood and over our bodies We tamp down the blood That flows in from the heart Wait till the part the skin meets the dart Lock in the kids and pull over the car Daddy won't go far Now only my body remains They come, they come And only my body remains
