Track Name: Richard Hasbeen
The kids believe
The tales I weave
Of the gonnabes
And the wannabes
Who brought the world to its knees
With power chords

Few were those
Who came to see
Who I used to be
What I could have been
The world soon brought me to my knees
And made me unsure

Now I preach a faith
I have no faith in
I teach each new wave
About everything but failing

When they fail
They'll be like me
When they fail
They'll feel the doubts I feel
Track Name: Dope Academy
Back to school, reality morality
I'm back to drool, it's so moron friendly
At the Dope Academy

You can bring back the cane
But I'm too numb to feel it
You can poke at my brain
But I'm too dumb to believe in
What you're teaching at the Dope Academy

I pour my free milk down the drain
And head to the tuck shop for my sherbert cocaine
I'm the top of the class, rock bottom ass
I'll get no gold stars today..

At the Dope Academy I've learned this one lesson
I could be arsed to learn
If I could be arsed to listen
Don't need their boring explanations
I already got myself a punk rock education
Track Name: Rockstars Don't Need To Pass Exams
I'm not for sitting behind a desk
And passing test after boring test
Rockstars don't need to pass exams

I'm young and fast and havin' a laugh
So don't send my dreams to an early bath
Rockstars don't need to pass exams

Groupiehalla here I come
Cue screaming girls when I shake my bum
Rockstars don't need to pass exams

Bland on bland or with the band?
Gimme my fame gimme my fans
Rockstars don't need to pass exams
Track Name: Any Crap Will Do
Any crap will do
But this is Dire
As in Straits
What our dad's love
We hate!

Oh no
It sounds like Quo
Or John and Yoko
Anything like something out of dad's record collection
Has to go

But the three chord trick
Has fooled the world
The three chord pony
Rules the world

Baggy or shaggy
It's all getting so draggy
Emo or Eno
Let's not come to blows

Surely any crap will do
The goose that poos the golden poos
Says we can steal from the old
And call it new!

...The three chord phoney
Rules the world!
Track Name: Save The Gannets
I think I'm just in time
To save the world
With this song
If you're hearing it
Don't just listen
Join in - sing along
Sing hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey
La la la la baby

If I make it
I'm gonna give way all my millions
To the Africans, Indians, Chinese and Brazilians
Don't be afraid
I can even get the pope to wear shades
Consider yourselves all saved
Consider yourselves all saved if you sing:
Hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey
La la la la baby

Save the earth
Save the planet
Save the dolphins
Save the gannets
Track Name: Rock'n'Roll Tantrum (Electric Hymn)
Lord let me scream over dirty power chords
Make this the one rock'n'roll tantrum
That they can't ignore

Old fools keep your flipped wigs on
And listen to another young fool's song

You offer us your screwed up world
No thanks
You offer us a life as screwed up as yours
No way - not a chance!

Old fools keep your flipped wigs on
And listen to another young fool's song
You've got credit cards store cards ID cards
But where's the card that will set you free?
Show me a yellow card show me a red card
Well.. here's a black card from me

Old fools keep your flipped wigs on
And listen to another young fool's song

Binge drinking binge drugging
Like Amy 'n' Pete
Popping pills like Smarties
40 Marlboro
Weed and Speed
It's a never ending, never ending, never ending party

You say youth is wasted on the wasted
But they've got what you haven't got and you hate it!!
Track Name: Chances Are For Chancers
Put the selfish aims aside
Take a deep deep breath
Is it all just shallow empty heartedness?

When you had one eye on image
And the other on success
You didn't see anything beautiful until it
Up and left

All those chances are for chancers
There's another way to find those answers

Can't you feel your fingertips can almost taste it
But your boomerang ego could waste it

Those kind of chances are for chancers
There's another way to find those answers..
Track Name: iPod Trash
Man - it's such a drag
This iPod Trash
Man - it's such a drag
This iPod Trash
It's such a downloadin' shame shame shame
My mp3 memory's gone braindead again

Hey - it's such a drag
This iPod trash
Hey - it's such a drag
This iPod trash
It's such downloadin' shay-yeh-ame
My mp3 memory is braindead again
It's a D.R.A.G.
It's a D.R.A.G.
It''s a S.H.A.M.E.
My mp3 has up and OD'd

Draggy, draggy, draggy, drag, drag, drag
Dragga, dragga, dragga, drag-a-lag-lag
An iPoddin' downerloadin' sh-sh-shame
Mp3 is BD again

Trashy, trashy, trashy, trash, trash, trash
Trasha, trasha, trasha, tra-tra-trashhhh
iPoddy poddy downloady sha-sha-shammmme
My mp1-2-3 has soooo OD'd

Testing - testing - testing - skool of hard rox
You might be hi-tech honey but you can't
Take the knox
Track Name: The Myth
Nuremburg to Wembley
That's the myth
Hey! How bad do you want it?
Or see you
On the toilet circuit
Hey! We know how to work it!

We come on stage
Like it's a viking raid
Gonna rock up daughters
Make your sons feel afraid
However much
However much you hate us
We're gonna achieve mythical status

So you might as well
Jump into moshpit hell
You might as well scream
This is the feedback dream
However much
However much you hate us
We're gonna achieve mythical status
Track Name: Will Get Fooled Again
Nokia Nintendo CCTV
Tabloids, steroids, androids
21st century void for me
What's there to go on about?
What's there to explain?
I'm saying the revolution is so over
And you will get fooled again

KFC, McDonalds, Subway
Loopy juice every Saturday
42 inch plasma screen
Simon Cowell is killing me
Hey! What's the score? It's 6 nil to them
Saying we can still beat them is so beat
You, you're getting fooled again

New city vision, demolitions galore
To build new trendy bars with super trendy prices
But why does it seem even worse than before?
Do you ever get the feeling you've been tagged?
That you never really had what you thought you had

What's there to go on about?
What's there to explain?
Saying people power is so powerless
Just accept it... we will get fooled again
Track Name: Answers On A Postcard
What the hell of the hells that was all about?
Don't whisper your explanations
It's better if you shout

Answers on a 6ft x 4ft postcard please
Was it all a kind of crazy rock'n'roll disease???

I might get a freaky flashback while I'm working at the bank
If someone says "hey - weren't you the man?"
I'll just go blank..
Answers on a 6ft x 4ft postcard please
Was it all a kind of crazy rock'n'roll disease???

My wife and kids have begged me not to go back there
So I sit and smoke my slippers
In my favourite electric chair
Answers on a 6ft x 4ft postcard please
Was it all some kind of crazy rock'n'roll disease???

At the funky supermarket the checkout girls all smile
'Cos in the sexy way I push my trolley
There's a hint of my old style
Answers on a 6ft x 4ft postcard please
Is it all a kind of crazy rock'n'roll disease???

..Young fools keep your flipped wigs on
Listen to another old fool's song..
