Track Name: Drones Clones Ramones
Another bunch of drones, another bunch of clones
Another band standing up against the wall like The Ramones
Yeah, it’s a repeat but have you seen what’s on the other side.

This is the decade so lame (so lame) it doesn’t even have a name (no name)
It goes with my lifestyle but it hurts my pride


98% of the time you choose someone to make up your mind
You don’t want to use it, don’t want to lose it so you leave it behind

It’s OK to have nothing to say, your thoughts aren’t formed you just take ‘em away
And I talked so much bullshit, I almost believed some it myself


All the old people died in the winter, all the young people died in a war
All the people in between died from being mean, all the poor people died from being poor

Plastic doesn’t rot it doesn’t rust. Our debris will outlast us.
Earth to earth, ashes to ashes (funks to funky) and dust to dust.
Track Name: Another Run For Gringo
Don't ask me where we're going to cos I don't know
I drive the bus, somebody else decides where to and when to go
They tell me when to hit the town and hit the brakes and hit the gas
And when to let them overtake and when to pass

Chorus:
I can't tell where we're going
No-one has a way of knowing
Do you?

I don't ask where we're going to cos I don't care
Don't make a fuss, it's better in the end if you are not aware
Don't stand too close, don't light it up, don't act like you don't know
It's more than my job's worth to ask who runs the show

Chorus

Bridge:
I never wonder why
I just go along till the day I die
I don't have a clue where we're going to
Can you say I'm wrong?
Can you say you do?

Chorus
Track Name: I Get Excited When You Call My Name
I've been so lonely, I've got nowhere to stay at the end of the day
I've been so hungry, I've been wasting away, having no-one to play
I get excited when you call my name
Excited when you call my name

I've been mistreated, I've been beating myself, cos there's nobody else
I get excited when you call my name
Excited when you call my name

When you call my name, I'm like a moth to a flame
When you call my name, I'm like a moth to a flame

Hunger got me crawling on my knees up to your door
I'm the beggar at your feast, I pick the crumbs up off your floor
I get up, I go down, I go round and round and round and round and round until I go insane
Hold me in the morning, make me feel like a gun
With your finger on my trigger, we can shine like the sun
For you, I'll walk into the flames
I get excited when you call my name
Excited when you call my name.

When you call my name, I'm like a moth to a flame
When you call my name, I'm like a moth to a flame
When you call my name, I'm like a moth to a flame
When you call my name, I'm like a moth to a flame

I've been so hungry, I've been wasting away, having no-one to play
I get excited when you call my name
Excited when you call my name
