Track Name: You're Invited
High rise, overtop the ocean
cool wind, blowing through your door
hey can I find you, find you a treat my cherry pie

Old dog, day of deep devotion
in style, running all the while
having all the pretty things, watching the flowers bring you joy

We planted a seed in the back of your mind
do you mind if we try to embrace another kind
to see if it breaks or to see where it takes us

Havin' a party, and you're invited x2

I'm in my birthday suit, I'm in my birthday suit

High rise, overtop the ocean
cool wind, blowing through your door
hey can I find you, find you a treat my cherry pie

Havin' a party, and you're invited x3
havin' a lolly, a strawberry lolly
Track Name: Hats Off
Where I live it's blue inside, ran away to a small isle
when I found you I was, how you say

You were there when I was stuck into
a place where I am only freed by you, I became

A rose upon a sleepy sunset glade
a rose that even winter cannot fade, hats off to you

Took a trip to the ice cream shop, didn't know what to put onto
till you gave me, a lollypop

It pains me dear when we are far apart
cause in you I have found a truthful heart, you're my pal

Though I haven't seen you in a while
in my mind I carry your sweet smile

How you say, hats off to you bud
Track Name: Wrath Days
oh these wrath days
not longing for single wrathless day
every land, a burning fire
wrought by seekers of the lie
their way is bad
but let em have it their way
I dig it cuz it's real
long live these wrath days

pity not the poplar grove
but the wind
pity not the depth of plain
but those who gain to reap it
pity not the voice of reason
hoarse against the west wind
pity yourself

oh these wrath days
not longing for a single wrathless day
every man is not a man
if he only join a band
they play the songs
and the songs are full of details
no one bats an ear
long live these wrath days

pity not the donkey's face
but its skull
pity not the car on fire
but those who gladly raze it
pity not the voice of anguish
drowned out in its quarters
pity yourself
oh these wrath days
Track Name: How Can I Sleep?
Evil walks away from me x3

Evil can stay, but he goes way
far out of reaches of mine

It's getting very hard, to believe
it's getting very hard to believe in you x2

How can I sleep when I know you're awake and I
keep an eye on your eyes overnight all the time x2

howl x3

How can I sleep when I know you're awake and I
Keep an eye on your eyes overnight all the time x2

howl x3

It's getting very hard, to believe
it's getting very hard to believe in you x3

howl x3

Evil walks away from me x3

Evil can stay, but he goes way
far out of reaches of mine
Track Name: Teddy Bear
Babe I know you see me dancin'
every move that I make is to draw you near
looks like you could use a companion
I'm getting tired out on the floor I need relief

I'll wrap you up right in my arms I've got this love I wanna share
just hold me tight and don't let go, let me be your teddy bear
I'll wrap you up right in my arms I've got this love I wanna share
just hold me tight and don't let go, baby let me be your teddy bear

I'm never gonna play the tough guy
babe you know I never want to make you cry
love isn't meant to be a battle
so come on over here, lay down by my side

I'll wrap you up right in my arms I've got this love I wanna share
just hold me tight and don't let go, let me be your teddy bear
I'll wrap you up right in my arms I've got this love I wanna share
just hold me tight and don't let go, baby let me be your teddy bear

I've been trying for so long now, to show you how sweet life can be
I'll treat you like you wanna be treated, with love baby

Babe I know you see me dancing
every move that I make is to draw you near
looks like you could use a companion
I'm getting tired, I'm on the floor I need relief

Let me be your teddy bear x3
I'm cuddly just like one
teddy bear
Track Name: Nothing Could Compare
Merry Christmas and I'm alone again
thought by now that I'd have found a friend
tik-toks, till saint nick knocks

Sixteen years and I remember when
I held your hand in the cold December wind
listen, you would listen

A bright red truck for Ted
a plump brown pony for dawn
but nothing would compare

The mention of his name and I can hardly speak
the worlds father Christmas, a tear rolls down my cheek
I was naughty, you forgot me

New years day and still there's no relief
brown pine needles scattered round my feet
where's my flabby sugar daddy

A baby deer hide for kyle
a day at the spa for his mum
but nothing would compare to a

Cold winters night, with you here by my side
I still believe in you, why can't you believe in me too
this Christmas missed my wish list and I wish that you would listen

Some brand name shoes for Matt
and Chris would like some food for his cat
Drew Smith would like some kisses
and I'll bet Feurd would take a misses
and Thom would like an oyster or two
and Travy wants some product for his doo
but nothing would compare to you
