Track Name: I Told You I Was Ill
Don’t let, fear intimidate you
Hold on, dreams motivate you
It’s a world of possibilities
For those who choose to think it is, so…

Work hard, living life, no regrets
Move on, try what you’ve never done
There are places to go and people to see
To book your place in history

Why don’t you leave it all behind [You know you want to]
Do something interesting instead of watch TV
Why don’t you leave it all behind [You know you want to]
Do something interesting instead of bothering me

Look at all the helpless souls afraid to meet a test,
And the desperate wives who love alone and wallow in regret,
The future’s bright, I’m telling you
We’re passed the worst and coming through

[Stronger] than the bodies by the wayside
[Faster] than memories we left behind
[Harder] for the knocks we took
[Higher] for the ale we supped, so…

Why don’t you leave it all behind [You know you want to]
Do something interesting instead of watch TV
Why don’t you leave it all behind [You know you want to]
Do something interesting instead of bothering me

When I look back, I’ll take a sense of satisfaction
From the knowledge I was one of those who saw some noble action
With a cheeky grin, I’ll play a joke on my grandchildren
I’ll tell you on my deathbed that I told you

I told you I was ill
I told you I was ill

Why don’t you leave it all behind [You know you want to]
Do something interesting instead of watch TV
Why don’t you leave it all behind [You know you want to]
Do something interesting instead of bothering me

When I look back, I’ll take a sense of satisfaction
From the knowledge I was one of those who saw some noble action
With a cheeky grin I’ll play a joke on my grandchildren
I’ll tell you on my deathbed that I told you

I told you I was ill
I told you I was ill
I told you I was ill
I told you I was ill
Track Name: Share the Wealth
Share the wealth with me, when you get the chance
You’ve had your hands in my pocket, ever since we were lads
Remember all those times that we laughed and we drank, as one [as one]
Share the wealth with me, when you’re feeling strong

I’m not asking for charity [charity]
I’m not asking for hand-outs [hand outs]
I’m not asking for your pity, but when you get the chance
Why not share the wealth [share the wealth]
Why not share the wealth [share the wealth]

Remember my guitar, the one I taught you to play
Remember my first car, and all the lifts that I gave

I’m not asking for charity [charity]
I’m not asking for hand-outs [hand outs]
I’m not asking for your pity, but when you get the chance
Why not share the wealth [share the wealth]
Why not share the wealth [share the wealth]

Share the wealth with Ste, now you’ve got the chance
Put your hand in your pocket, it’s time for your round
Remember all those times that we laughed and we drank, as one [as one]
Share the wealth with me, that’s what friends are for

I’m not asking for charity [charity]
I’m not asking for hand-outs [hand outs]
I’m not asking for your pity, but if you get the chance
Why not share the wealth [share the wealth]
Why not share the wealth [share the wealth]
Track Name: Psalm 23
As I walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Death
I will fear no evil on the way
Though the road is filled with darkness and there’s danger ahead
I’m determined to walk until the day

Each night I’m alone
And still there’s no one on the phone
To tell me
I’ll be alright and live to say

That I’ve walked through the Valley of the Shadow of Death
And lived to fight another day

As I ponder the dangers that hem the path ahead
I sometimes feel I’ve not the strength to stay
The distance of a lifetime on the straight and narrow road
But the thought of you shines light upon the way

Each night I’m alone
And still there’s no one on the phone
To tell me
I’ll be alright and live to say

That I’ve walked through the Valley of the Shadow of Death
And I’ve lived to fight another day

Each night I’m alone
And still there’s no one on the phone
To tell me,
That I’ll be alright and live to say

I’ll walk alone with no fear
I’ll walk alone til you’re here
I’ll walk alone with no fear
I’ll walk alone til it's clear

Walk alone

Each night I’m alone, and
Still can’t call you on the phone
To tell you
We’ll be alright and live to say

That I’ve walked through the Valley of the Shadow of Death
And I’ve lived to fight another day

I’ll walk alone with no fear
Track Name: Better Days (Part I)
When I was young my Granddad told me
About his days down in the Nook
In just his shirt and baggy shorts
He’s wait his turn to wear the shoes

He’d wonder why his Mammy died
And all those nights she spent confined
He’d think of how he tried his best
And prayed for better days ahead

In these better days he’ll think of all that’s gone by
All the things he tried to teach his two young sons
And I recognise that he’s alive and I’m so glad he’s here
In these better days he prayed for now they’ve come

When I was young my Father told me
About his days down in the Nook
How much they cried when David died
And worked for better days ahead

In these better days he’ll think of all that’s gone by
All the things he tried to teach his only son
And I recognise that he’s alive and I’m so glad he’s here
In these better days he prayed for now they’ve come

Not alone any more
Not alone any more
Not alone any more
Not alone any more

Now he’s old my Granddad tells me
How proud he is of what he sees
In just a word it means a lifetime
From the Grand Old Man he’s been

In these better days he’ll think of all that’s gone by
All the things he tried to teach his two young sons
And I recognise that he’s alive and I’m so glad he’s here
In these better days he worked for now they’ve come
Track Name: One Hundred Years
One hundred years from now there’ll still be fucking war
Equipped with high technology what else are weapons for
Your vision of the future is founded on mistake
Human is human not divine and born to cause us pain

These hundred years will prove us right
Torn by evolution no option but to fight
No chance to reach perfection
So fuck humanity

One hundred years from now we’ll all be fucking dead
In no-one’s image but our own, it’s in their fucking head
Their vision of the future is founded on mistake
Human is human not divine and born to cause us pain

These hundred years will prove us right
Torn by evolution no option but to fight
No chance to reach perfection
So fuck humanity

Still be fucking pain
Still be fucking hate
Still be fucking war [one hundred years from now]
Still be fucking war [one hundred years from now]

Still believe in pain [one hundred years from now]
Still believe in hate [one hundred years from now]
Still believe in war [one hundred years from now]
Still believe in war [one hundred years from now]

These hundred years will prove us right
Torn by evolution no option but to fight

One hundred years from now there’ll still be fucking war
Equipped with high technology what else are weapons for
Your vision of the future is founded on mistake
Human is human not divine and born to cause us pain

These hundred years will prove us right
Torn by evolution no option but to fight
No chance to reach perfection
[So fuck humanity]
No chance to reach perfection
[So fuck humanity]
No chance to reach perfection
[So fuck humanity]
Track Name: The Thatto Heath Song
My Mum’s a prostitute, na na na na na
Singing My Mum’s a prostitute, na na na na na na
My Mum’s a prostitute, na na na na na
And my Dad’s a professional thief

Thatto Heath!

On certain rainy nights when you’ve nowhere to go
Just come with me and leave your mind in some safe hands I know
Harmless fun for everyone on the corner of the law
Making mischief for the codgers in the park walking the dog

It’s a place where we’re all equal, all ready for a slap
But you better not slap the bastards or their Dad will slap you back
A magic land of industry that was but now is gone
And the tourist board promotes it with just this little song

Singing…
My Mum’s a prostitute, na na na na na
Singing My Mum’s a prostitute, na na na na na na
My Mum’s a prostitute, na na na na na
And my Dad’s a professional thief

The teenagers are all pregnant sometimes even the lads
The virgin mothers scratch their heads and look out for a Dad
Our cat burglars & bad back men are heroes of renown
Selling DVDs and nine bob notes and shampoo for a pound

We’ve got rugby players, Stella suppers, some on downers, some on uppers
Cairo plaques and black bin bags, big fat cats and dirty rats
We built the world and won its wars now here’s our celebration
Of industrial decline and latent social devastation

Singing…

If I had the chance to look back at my life
I’d think of all the times I got drunk with my friends
If I said goodbye and I was never coming back
I’d think of all the cans we killed in your old flat
If I ask myself if I’d do it all again
Without a doubt I would surely say yes

After all we’re going nowhere
After all where going nowhere…

But singing…

My Dad’s a professional
My Ma’s a professional
