[The lyrics to this song are made up from Rufio song and album titles] Why Wait to Set It Off? Run the Countdown! I’m Still Out Of Control it’s all Above Me I’ll Let Fate Decide if I walk A Simple Line But Don’t Hate Me, We Exist to say Goodbye Save The World and Follow Me and live a life of Decency But When She Cries I feel the Tears are In My Eyes Perhaps, I Suppose we are Drowning On Our Own Face The Truth, Stop Whining, follow the White Lights There’s The Comfort Of Home, it’s Just A Memory I own What You Wanna Hear is Anybody Out There? Mental Games Control a price that Gold And Silver cannot buyBut Selfishness is My Escape to Science Fiction The Wrath of The Road To Recovery gets old This Bitter Season shook My Little World I’m Over It I guess I’ll Never Learn

An angry, white, middle-class suburban punk in strife I had a job my hands were tied 2002 I learnt the art that they don’t teach in school Looking back I nearly died I remember the stress appalling I remember the trip and falling I remember the day that I hit the ground I learnt the art of breaking down I learnt the art of breaking down I learnt the art of breaking down I never thought I needed help or that life wasn’t fine It never even crossed my mind It snuck up on me, adding up until eventually I thought escape was suicide I remember the stress appalling I remember the trip and falling I remember the day that I hit the ground I learnt the art of breaking down I learnt the art of breaking down I learnt the art of breaking down When will we learn? When will we see? We need each other and honesty Until we learn statistics show We practise the art that we shouldn't know I learnt the art of breaking down I learnt the art of breaking down I learnt the art of breaking down

I love this country I love our flag John Key is the worst Prime Minister we’ve ever had There’s one thing John Key loves more than himself But pulling ponytails is bad for mental health We only change the flag when we leave The Commonwealth He’s not the man that he longs to be He tried to change the flag to leave his legacy TransRail shares and a blind trust he could see A day in the life of John Key Brave men and women died under that flag for Queen or country or God John Key is sad There’s one thing John Key loves more than himself But pulling ponytails is bad for mental health We only change the flag when we leave The Commonwealth He’s not the man that he longs to be He tried to change the flag to leave his legacy TransRail shares and a blind trust he could see A day in the life of John Key Song sample video links: Ponytail Pulling part 1: https://youtu.be/cKm83oh_PK4 TranzRail shares part 1: https://youtu.be/VeJSFVWKnsE TranzRail shares part 2: https://youtu.be/iaEXa202Q6M Blind Trust: https://youtu.be/u18hk8lzMBU

The boy’s deceived he thinks you’re queen He only loves what he sees I know you and you’re so mean His worse nightmare is in his dreams I can guarantee that there’s a hole where your heart should be He’s in love with you but someone’s gotta tell that boy the truth I don’t want to be the one to tell the dude you’re a heartless chick I don’t want to be the one to break the news I don’t want to be the one to tell the dude you’re a heartless chick I don’t want to be the one to break the news Hell no! Listen to me bro! She’s someone you don’t want to know! I can guarantee that there’s a hole where your heart should be He’s in love with you but someone’s gotta tell that boy the truth I don’t want to be the one to tell the dude you’re a heartless chick I don’t want to be the one to break the news I don’t want to be the one to tell the dude you’re a heartless chick I don’t want to be the one to break the news I don’t want to be the one to tell the dude

Korean Air 02:12
I’ll never forget the worst day of my life I was flying Korean Air The air-con was turned off for 12 hours of hell The kimchi was all I could smell I’ll never fly Korean Air again they’re a bunch of crazy 한국어 I never want as friends I’ll never fly Korean Air again t’s like being in a coma in a coffin bound for Hell I’ll never fly Korean Air again I called for the hostess at 30 degrees and told her I needed air I started to suffocate Now I know why She wanted the white man to die! I’ll never fly Korean Air again, they’re a bunch of crazy 한국어 I never want as friends I’ll never fly Korean Air again, it’s like being in a coma in a coffin bound for Hell I’ll never fly Korean Air Don’t ever fly Korean Air I’ll never fly Korean Air again

Lisa 01:00
Bite my tongue every time I see your photograph It nearly breaks my heart in half Like you my eyes so blue Ten years ago I held you in my arms so close You were only one month old when I held you You’re the sister I never got to know and never knew I’m the brother you never got to know My heart’s with you

I can’t believe that you’d treat Steve like that Tammy That was harsh, but he’s got a guitar It sounds to me he treated you like you were queen You ripped out his heart, but he’s got a guitar Now his counselling starts

You and me I can’t understand it We disagreed so I had to end it How is it you always get your way? I’m writing punk songs now and I’m growing my hair long Yes there is life after the band I’m writing punk songs now and I’m growing my hair long Yes there is life after the band Yes there is life after the band
