Track Name: Pangea
Do you ever think about how the world first looked
without pictures or computers or people or books?
a peaceful green place with animals and trees
and no obligations or people to bother me

All the continents and countries were all in one place
who knows if I was living in Japan or in Spain
just a citizen of the world in the garden of Eden
we can’t join the dinosaurs so we might as well be them

oh that’s my kind of world
oh that’s my kind of world

my name is Pangea my name is Pangea
I had a wonderful
career, career, career…

i might sound like a hippy or an idealist
but sometimes when I’m sad I picture this
walking place to place with no border patrol
what’s an immigrant? what’s state control?

oh Pangea you’re a supercontinent
and I think you’re super in every sense of the word
the world, the word, the world, the word

oh that’s my kind of world
oh that’s my kind of world

my name is Pangea my name is Pangea
I had a wonderful
career, career, career…
Track Name: Canned Laughter
Four leafed clovers
ice cream
fixed mortgages
pipe dreams

I was lucky to make it out of the womb alive

sticky lipstick
warm beer
stiletto heels
happy tears

I was hungry for a bit of what you had
I’m itching for a smile for a laugh

Stretch out your smile and close down your eyes for
Canned laughter
Canned Laughter
Open it up and see what’s inside
canned laughter
canned laughter

Slapstick
Bull whip
sunny day
wet lips

don’t let a complication cool you off

brick house
floorboards
old tapes
shore to shore

kicking up dirt and seeing if you look better
spit in your hand and write your mother a letter

Stretch out your smile and close down your eyes for
Canned laughter
Canned Laughter
Open it up and see what’s inside
canned laughter
canned laughter
Track Name: Nice Guys
It’s always been a problem to put all your eggs in one basket
but maybe one day they’ll hatch and you’ll regurgitate your innards
and I’ll feed off all your bile and I’ll suck down all your sickness
cos I’ve been waiting round for summers and I’ve been waiting round for winters

My shoulders wet and salty and I’m standing straight for leaning
why you always in to arseholes girl that’s not very hygienic
but neither is being a weasel and I’ve got that area covered
and I can’t wait for the day my true intentions are discovered

There’s nothing nice about
Nice Guys
There’s nothing nice about
Nice Guys

see the problem always arises when I feel entitled to something
my mother always told me I was a nice boy and I thought that was worth believing
the beta male isn’t always the better male all though I’d hate to admit it
losers are sometimes losers for a reason

There’s nothing nice about
Nice Guys
There’s nothing nice about
Nice Guys
Track Name: URA Winner!
i was a baptist - I was a crook
I was a scientist -I burnt books

I chewed my fingers - what a good idea
now I can’t put them - in my ears

gold lane - fuzzy tape
blurry eyes - family ties

I was nothing I was something
scream my purpose whisper nervous
keep my head up stand up straighter
all my pennies saved for later
nice one, good job, better, faster, brilliant, now try
something different, task completed, well done,
now collect your prize from the room down the hall

URA WINNER! URA WINNER!

is this the right shirt? —for the occasion?
should I be more — of the casual persuasion

if I wrap this neck tie — around my brain
will I be smarter — and better with names

big chance — seize the day
stay busy — stay safe

I was nothing I was something
scream my purpose whisper nervous
keep my head up stand up straighter
all my pennies saved for later
nice one, good job, better, faster, brilliant, now try
something different, task completed, well done,
now collect your prize from the room down the hall

URA WINNER! URA WINNER!
