Track Name: The Piranha Parade
In the middle of a pure disaster
Settle down now, cos we are your masters
There's a lot to teach ya man
To keep them beaten, right where they stand

Overrun with feral dysfunction
Bring about their utter destruction
Yeah we'll deal the killing blow
It's us v them and they need to go

In good time yeah you'll stifle their laughter
Get to see them as they swing from the rafters
Postpone this Parade of Piranhas
Pretty soon you'll see them burn...

Never feel that they've all surpassed ya
Need a sermon? Just call me the pastor
Take their sticks and break their bones
Keep them down like Sierra Leone

In good time yeah you'll stifle their laughter
Get to see them as they swing from the rafters
Postpone this Parade of Piranhas
Pretty soon you'll see them burn...

The Piranha Parade
How'd you like my grenade?
Say goodnight, The Piranha Parade...
Track Name: Roots
Some people say
Remember your roots
Never forget
They're the making of you

Well this place hasn't made me
It's only tried to break me, it's true

Some people say
You gotta live and let live
Give what you get
Forget and forgive

Now you circle round me
Hoping for a piece of me

Yes, I see the vultures
Make a carcass outta me
Yes, I see the vultures
As they stain the city streets

Yes I see the vultures
Oh they'd love to see me bleed
Yes, I see the vultures
As they stain the city streets
Track Name: Little Lord Lucre
Little Lord Lucre
Sold us out
Sold us out so it seems
Acting all peculiar
Aw, you're lost
Lost inside of a scene

Hold you down and rape ya
As long as there's
A tip and a portion of praise
(He'd) Never make a Quaker
Reel them and spit them out
Cos it pays

A sideshow attraction
Promises
Are broke before they are made
Shoulda formed a faction
Cut you out
Cut you out in raid

Ah, we'd love to lose ya
Aw, we'd love
To throw you under a car
Love to lose ya
Then we'd sing
La la la la la la
Track Name: Shame You Don't Know
I stole your secrets
You can't ever have them back

Hold you to ransom
Yes I'll blow you off the track

I'll bend and break ya down
Do it with a smile

It's no deception
It's conception of attack

It's no joke
Shame you don't know

I've got your number
I can see through your disguise

In a war of wits
You are defenceless and unwise

I've got the best of you
And now it's just routine

With no exception
Yes I'll cut you down to size

It's no joke
Shame you don't know
Track Name: Shona Dancing
Oh no well she's at it again
Though you've had your words
Messing around cos that's her game
You're looking so absurd

She's the light and she's the night
Wherever she goes
Somehow you've gone and lost your spine
Now she's in control

Shame you don't know any better
Come along now do you need it in a letter?
Son, you've got to get yourself together
And just make a stand

Grounded at the end of your tether
Why do you pray she could be your Barberella?
Drives you insane
Oh you know
This girl won't be restrained...

Well you'll fantasise about her demise
You haven't got the balls
To see it through; to make amends
To put an end to it all

Sever the ties, Just sever the ties
But I know that you won't
If you were bleeding
She'd be leaving
Won't you be told?

Shame you don't know any better
Come along now do you need it in a letter?
Son, you've got to get yourself together
And just make a stand

Grounded at the end of your tether
Why do you pray she could be your Barberella?
Drives you insane
Oh you know
This girl won't be restrained...
