Feel Alive 02:40
The nouveau riche I see each day get up only for more pay They pass the proles with a pompous grin a bitter taste of Victory Gin I said Hey at the count of 5 Start to feel alive So as you're takin' in that line let your heart open your mind and set the seed inside your head The age of ignorance is dead it's dead it's dead it's dead it's dead it's dead it's dead it's dead it's dead So at the count of 5 Start to feel alive 1! 2! 3! 4! 5!!!

Celtic Tiger 04:07
The tiger is hungry she broke out of her cage will this be the tale of our Golden Age? It's funny how money can make you so poor We used to settle for some but now we want more and more and more and She's like a ship out of steam our Celtic Tiger dream She's the debts you made but knew you'd never pay She's the job that you hate but it's far too late It was all bound to fall It was all bound to fall So climb on the ladder, kid reach for the sky but it's bound to fall if we all get so high And I remember the poet down by the canal so how can I stay for a creature of clay? When all the while She's like a ship out of steam our Celtic Tiger dream She's the debts you made but knew you'd never pay She's the job that you hate but it's far too late It was all bound to fall It was all bound to fall It was written in red all the newspapers said We'd started to stall It was the end of it all We set sail for foreign shores like so many before It was the end of it all We're all bound to fall And she's like a ship out of steam

Big City Hustle Always drives to work Four blocks in a Merc Like a fuckin' jerk Big City Hustle never break the mold Stone cold Always do what you're told Big City Hustle Subway delay It's just another jumper fuckin' up your day but Big City Hustle Couldn't take the pain inner city pity made her papa insane Big City Hustle My rent is high Big City Hustle So am I Big City Hustle Burnin' up inside, I'm like it's Big City Hustle Do or die! Big City Hustle Her band got signed Showed up late now they're getting fined Big City Hustle Got two girlfriends One for the week and one for when the weekends Big City Hustle Dope deal gone bad It's just another brother growin' up with no dad But Big City Hustle Couldn't get no loan though they give you more money the more money you own Big City Hustle My rent is high Big City Hustle So am I Big City Hustle All her friends are bi so Big City Hustle said she'd give it a try Big City Hustle My rent cheque bounced and Big City Hustle was ready to pounce Big City Hustle burnin' up inside, I'm like it's Big City Hustle Do or die! But growin' up quick she's dreaming of confetti Just as I got set to jet she said "I'm missin' it already" But I'm leavin' Growin' up strong, already in the Hustle and so she savours every single second she can rustle up So strong but I'm gone... POW! Big City Hustle My rent is high Big City Hustle So am I Big City Hustle was starry-eye'd so Big City Hustle said she'd give it a try Big City Hustle I bike down King Big City Hustle I do my thing, but Big City Hustle I might get door'd, because of Big City Hustle and the fuckers like Ford! A little cottage in the countryside is all I really need Making music by the water's edge Just my little girl and me ...but it's Big City Hustle My rent is high Big City Hustle So am I Big City Hustle All her friends are bi so Big City Hustle was like "Gimme a try" Big City Hustle I bike down King Big City Hustle I do my thing Big City Hustle Burnin' up inside, i'm like it's Big City Hustle Do or die!

One time in the heart of town I passed you by, oh no Right by where we used to play Swore I'd seen the light, oh no I nearly dropped the phone When I saw that thóin and I know, I know you've heard this before, but I nearly dropped the phone now I'm all alone and I know, I know when I get home I close my eyes and try to remember what you look like I close my eyes and try to remember what you look like Standing right upon the edge of the sky, oh no Not quite afraid to fall but afraid to try, oh no ('cause you're) Something that I've never seen before a pretty dresser but not a w***e and I know, I know you've heard this before, but Something that I've never seen before a pretty dresser but I know, I know when I get home I close my eyes and try to remember what you look like I close my eyes and try to remember what you look like And if the world could be so right I'd have you in my bed tonight I close my eyes and try to remember what you look like I close my eyes and try to remember what you look like I close my eyes and try to remember what you look like

The middle of nowhere is the breeding ground for love every second that passes I miss you more 'cause you're the one I'm dreaming of Lying in the pouring rain there's no sleep making pretty promises we won't keep like we'll stay here until the sun burns out In the middle of In the middle of love In the middle of In the middle of love And everything that I said was true way back when I was in love with you and everything that I said was true in the middle of love with you and I know Lying in tents, filled with suspense I just couldn't sleep I never thought that I could get caught in something so deep But I felt the cost in the woods, in these woods When I, I got lost, in the woods, in these woods Oh and I first heard the sound in the woods, in these woods When I got found In the middle of In the middle of love In the middle of In the middle of The middle of nowhere is the breeding ground for love every second that passes I miss you more cause you're the one I'm dreaming of In the middle I said was true I'm in the middle of love with you In the middle, I said was true I'm in the middle of love with you

We're in heaven here but it just can't last The rays are beaming down but all things must pass Skies are blue but you're still green and I can't feel what you don't mean We found solitude in open land Laying habitats with our bare hands Red hot days and frozen nights When you're sleeping under Northern Lights Again and again again and again again and again again and again again and again again and again just another step... Winter's coming and I fear its grip So I've been planning out my farewell trip Maybe I'll go to Mexico I wish I knew my way around Peru Chile's warm despite the name but if I stay here I might just go insane...

Withdrawal 04:12
In a seedy, neon bar you were shining like a star And at such a tender age you're too sweet to take that stage I wish I could afford to see you dance again There's love at the bottom of an ATM We're from the same small town but I ain't never seen your face when I asked you what you do when you're back home you just smiled and said "get stoned don't we all?" I wish I could afford to see you dance again There's love at the bottom of an ATM So don't feel bad for me 'cause I don't feel bad for you we've all gotta do what we all gotta do I was floating in a dream and I awoke staring at a screen so glad you came but you can't leave till I get paid And you played me like an old guitar and I never should have ever let it go so far but if I could, you know I would do it all again cause now I know that there's love at the bottom of an ATM I wish I could afford to see you dance again There's love at the bottom of an ATM

The blankets of money wrapping up your dreams and splitting your conscience at the seams but I wanna live just like the poets I admire until they light my funeral pire And if thinkin' you're funny when you're not is the biggest blind spot you've got I could reason as you rant all through the night Chuckle me into the morning light into the morning light until the mornin' light until the moment feels right The million people I see every day couldn't make me feel less alone Never even lookin' up at me I can't wait to go back home A little cottage in the countryside is all I really need Making music by the water's edge just my little girl and me And it's Yuppie Love I keep on hearin' it Yuppie Love and I've been fearin' it Yuppie Love I hope you'e feelin' it too It's just another dope deal gone bad It's just another brother with no dad The same store it's oh, so sad I needed Yuppie Love I used to bike down King I used to do my thing I used to dream about Yuppie Love
