Track Name: great riff your majesty
the king he formed a band that was no good
minions were not allowed to sit they stood
peasants they had to go to all their concerts
their record mandatorily they bought it

bored of the waving hands
bored of the little flags
bored of the charity
bored of the dynasty
bored of christening ships
bored of opening things
the servants all have to say
great riff your majesty

peasants bought their t-shirts raised their status
join the fanclub and they'd pay less taxes
other bands were banned they were illegal
so the king was number one eternal

bored of the waving hands
bored of the little flags
bored of the charity
bored of the dynasty
bored of christening ships
bored of opening things
the servants all have to say
great riff your majesty

at the height of their popularity
topped himself for enduring legacy

bored of the waving hands
bored of the little flags
bored of the charity
bored of the dynasty
bored of christening ships
bored of opening things
the servants all have to say
great riff your majesty

we have so much in common
it's a shame i have to kill you

i'm gonna have to kill you
i'm gonna have to kill you
i'm gonna have to kill you
though i quite like you
i'm gonna have to kill you

Track Name: rio lies
oh yeah my love oh yeah we're in rio
this is the place that always we go
and we walk the beach
in our favourite g-strings
gigantic sunglasses for giant sun
cash into the cleavage wave the fronds

strutting around to the festive music
it goes so well with the coke we're using
and the children dance
because we drive so fast
but there's something telling me you are no good
that the things you do behind my back are lewd
don't think i don't see it

i've had enough of rio lies
don't think that i don't realise
i've had enough of rio lies
from you

you take a business trip to rio
too bad you didn't invite me oh
and i take offence
it's not a conference
you've been seeing that new tart down in brazil
and when you're away it makes me wanna kill
both of you especially

i've had enough of rio lies
don't think that i don't realise
i've had enough of rio lies
from you
i've had enough of rio lies
don't think that i don't realise
i've had enough of rio lies
from you

something telling me you are no good
things you do behind my back are lewd

i've had enough of rio lies
don't think that i don't realise
i've had enough of rio lies
from you
i've had enough of rio lies
don't think that i don't realise
i've had enough of rio lies
from you
Track Name: poor thing was terrified
got a plunging neckline
orange on her hands
husband is a prick
she's a gambling addict
heart's heavy with
a thousand years' gossip
years ago she hitched
her star to the wrong rope

preferred the older noisy dishwasher
hid the sound of the tears she cried
and she's thinking

i'm gonna kill that man with arsenic
then i'll dissolve him pour him down the sink
police will come and everyone will think
poor thing was terrified
everyone knew he was an awful man
probably beat her with a frying pan
said he would kill her if she ever ran
poor thing was terrified
frightened for her life

and her son's a fuckup
yeah she never sees him
if she gets the guts
to do it he'll come home

she makes a stop down at the hardware store
there's a few things she has to buy
she's made up her mind

i'm gonna kill that man with arsenic
then i'll dissolve him pour him down the sink
police will come and everyone will think
poor thing was terrified
everyone knew he was an awful man
probably beat her with a frying pan
said he would kill her if she ever ran
poor thing was terrified
frightened for her life

maybe i'll give myself some bruises
just to back up all my excuses
then i'll be free he'll be translucent goo

down in the drains
of shit where he belongs
yeah

i'm gonna kill that man with arsenic
then i'll dissolve him pour him down the sink
police will come and everyone will think
poor thing was terrified
everyone knew he was an awful man
probably beat her with a frying pan
said he would kill her if she ever ran
poor thing was terrified
frightened for her life
Track Name: rover the prawn
we found a companion
inside a pot
we took him home with us
it was less hot
and we named him rover
he didn't hear it
when we called his name
but he never bit or barked
he was quite tame

yeah rover the prawn
was never good at catching frisbees
he wasn't born
to run around he was too crispy
rover the prawn
was not quite pet and not quite seafood
he was just bored
being a bit of both wouldn't you be

could he remember the seabed
where he came from
could he remember his siblings
his dad or mum
did he find it strange
to live eating dog food
living in the can
cos he seemed depressed
to be the best friend of man

yeah rover the prawn
was never good at catching frisbees
he wasn't born
to run around he was too crispy
rover the prawn
was not quite pet and not quite seafood
he was just bored
being a bit of both wouldn't you be

taking in neglected prawns
into our loving home
saving them from barbeques
and necrosis syndrome

rover the prawn
was never good at catching frisbees
he wasn't born
to run around he was too crispy
rover the prawn
was not quite pet and not quite seafood
he was just bored
being a bit of both wouldn't you be
Track Name: (naked, she eats) cake at the sink
she will die young
she doesn't care
sometimes she stops
sweats on the stairs

out my window they do not close their blinds
naked she eats cake at the sink

oh yeah cake at the sink

she plays his whistle
from behind
while eating cake
it blows my mind

and i know cos i've seen this
out my window i wish that i was blind
naked she eats cake at the sink

oh yeah cake at the sink

Track Name: nightmares of gene simmons
eight foot figure at the foot of my bed
big black hair comes out of a big white head
fills my heart with dread
and a tongue rolls out as long as the room
i can't move or speak in my little tomb
as i face my doom

he used to come sometimes
now he comes every night
he leaves me terrified
i wish that he wouldn't do this

and the kids at school they know what i mean
cos they all have had the exact same dream
at least the same theme
and a kid will die almost every night
they don't come to school anymore they've died
could be you tonight

he used to come sometimes
now he comes every night
he leaves me terrified
i wish that he wouldn't do this

ooh he throws back his demon head
vomits streams of blood so red
nightmares of gene simmons
ooh and he throws back his axe bass
goes to plant it in my face
nightmares of gene simmons

in one of my dreams i was bouncing round
bumping into bright lights that would make a sound
on every rebound
i was a pinball in a kiss machine
begged the other members to please stop gene
from killing me

he used to come sometimes
now he comes every night
he leaves me terrified
i wish that he wouldn't do this

ooh he throws back his demon head
vomits streams of blood so red
nightmares of gene simmons
ooh and he throws back his axe bass
goes to plant it in my face
nightmares of gene simmons

he used to come sometimes
now he comes every night
he leaves me terrified
i wish that he wouldn't do this

ooh he throws back his demon head
vomits streams of blood so red
nightmares of gene simmons
ooh and he throws back his axe bass
goes to plant it in my face
nightmares of gene simmons

ooh he throws back his demon head
vomits streams of blood so red
nightmares of gene simmons
ooh and he throws back his axe bass
goes to plant it in my face
nightmares of gene simmons
Track Name: slips my doilies
she slips my doilies in her bag
thinks i won't know thinks i am mad
i know what's going on
no one believes i bend their ear
she says there's never been doilies in here
i know what's going on
all my doilies
they are all gone

she vaccums all around my bed
doesn't look at me thinks i am nearly dead
she wipes under the photo frames
and all around the old lampshade
and every now and then she carefully

she slips my doilies in her bag
thinks i won't know thinks i am mad
i know what's going on
no one believes i bend their ear
she says there's never been doilies in here
i know what's going on
all my doilies
they are all gone

she must steal them from everyone
she's probably hoarded about a ton
a doily for the bathroom floor
a doily for under her door
cos every now and then she carefully

she slips my doilies in her bag
thinks i won't know thinks i am mad
i know what's going on
no one believes i bend their ear
she says there's never been doilies in here
i know what's going on
all my doilies
they are all gone

she wipes under the photo frames
and all around the old lampshade
and very carefully
she steals from me

Track Name: bad shoes
your rice
was cooked by volunteers
you've got green streaks in your hair
ahh
you're here
because you can afford the rent
you've got roof racks for your tent
ahh

and your ethical shoes
cost more than the value
of what most people eat
in a year
but you can't buy the bad shoes

cos you're oh so liberated
cos the salon dyes your hair
cos the artist paints you naked
sticker your car because you care
cos we both know that we're smarter
we don't need to back that up
promise never to leave this suburb
i agree let's go to the pub

you dance
to the poor man's djembe drum
you write books you're not just mum
ahh
ahh

and your ethical shoes
cost more than the value
of what most people eat
in a year
but you can't buy the bad shoes

cos you're oh so liberated
cos the salon dyes your hair
cos the artist paints you naked
sticker your car because you care
cos we both know that we're smarter
we don't need to back that up
promise never to leave this suburb
i agree let's go to the pub

windchimes
how they set your spirit free
buttoned down in silly dreams
ahh
ahh
ahh
ahh
ahh
ahh
Track Name: throwing children
a massive rumbling somewhere out in the distance
a dusty formation rolling on the horizon
first we tried to drive the car away
got stuck on the bridge out of the bay
so we left the car behind
had no choice but to run

throwing little children as i ran
i saved my soul
i saved my soul
throwing little children as i ran
i saved my soul
i saved it

their little legs so short
the giants ate them whole
but i made it to the hills
i did not have to fight

women and children get out of my goddamned way
if you die so you die i won't join you i'm not insane
got my whole life still ahead of me
rather they ate you instead of me
this is an emergency
every man for himself

throwing little children as i ran
i saved my soul
i saved my soul
throwing little children as i ran
i saved my soul
i saved my soul
throwing little children as i ran
i saved my soul
i saved it

their little legs so short
the giants ate them whole
but i made it to the hills
i did not have to fight

got my whole life still ahead of me
rather they ate you instead of me
this is an emergency
every man for himself

throwing little children as i ran
i saved my soul
i saved my soul
throwing little children as i ran
i saved my soul
i saved my soul
throwing little children as i ran
i saved my soul
i saved my soul
throwing little children as i ran
i saved my soul
i saved it
