    Experience, the full quality audio from one of the limited edition compact disc editions of this album. Touch, the recycled chipboard digipak. Smell, the ink. Put, the CD on a shelf. Seriously the thing is great. Covers from somewhere in America, drawn in Denmark, screenprinted in Dublin, CDs produced in Mayo. At a tenner I'm making a loss on every one of them, they're that limited. Oh, if you buy this you get the download too.

about

This album? Why? What's it for? Who wants this?
This album happened mainly because I wanted to work on something that had I full control of. I don't just mean musically but how it was done and when. This album would get done or not on my timetable. And sure enough it's late. My deadline, my fault.
But I also did this for fun. I wanted to experiment with songwriting. I wanted to see what kind of a Pop song I would write, I love 80s Metal, could I write a plodding Heavy Metal Anthem? What would it sound like if I tried to write a heartfelt Country song and so on? I wanted it to sound like a compilation album. In my head it does anyway.
Even though I worked mostly alone on this I have had a great time doing it. So many takes ruined by my laughing. Really this album, for me, was about the process and it feels weird to be finished or having people hear it.
Enjoy, have fun.
Anthony

Track Name: Pick It Up
I tend to my garden,
I do it often,
I even trim around the edges,
I trim the hedges,
I rake up the cuttings,
But before I start I have to watch my step,

Why am I picking up shit,
When I don't have a dog,

Maybe if I'm lucky,
Someone will put the kettle on,
And bring out some tea and biscuits for me,

Why am I picking up shit,
When I don't have a dog,
I'm always trying not to stand in it,
And I don't have a dog.
Track Name: Is That What You Want?
Sick of looking at the same four walls,
Sick of looking at your stupid face,
Sick of always being shouted at,
Everybody's got to say their piece well,

I swear, you'll never see me again,
Is that what you want?
I hate my life,
Is that what you want?

Never opening my big fat mouth,
Never listening to your advice,
Our worlds are now so far apart,
You're not the day and I'm not the nightmare,

I swear, you'll never see me again,
Is that what you want?
I hate my life,
Is that what you want?

Now it's time for me to take a stand,
Time to listen to my own advice,
I want to run away and never come back,
I've been alive but my life starts right now!

Is that what you want?
I hate my life,
Is that what you want?
Track Name: Last Chance
One big bad time,
I just left behind,
I don't want to relive those days,
This time with you,

So let's save some time and end it right now,

But now I'm torn,
Already had my tyres slashed,
And my cards refused,
Who knows this time,
Maybe you'll end up hurting me,
Stealing all my records and smashing my guitars,

I want to save some time and end it right now,

Tell me this isn't my last chance,
'coz I blew it,
I want to fall in love again,

So let's let it live,
The past is in the past now,
The sun is shining, you are mine and,
I'm ready to be yours,

Tell me this isn't my last chance,
'coz I blew it,
I want to fall in love again,
Track Name: I Miss You
Instrumental
Track Name: Back The Way We Came
On a lazy Sunday when the sun came out,
And we had nothing else to do,
It looked like roadtrip weather,
Got our shit together,
Yea, her, me and you,
We drove for half the day,
We made up the way,
We had Slayer on the stereo,
The left the town behind,
The beach was hard to find,
We'd only one thing on our minds,

We should have gone back,
We should have gone back the way we came,

We ate our sandwiches,
We drank our beer,
We played I Spy, swam and fucked,
And when we sobered up,
We packed up our things,
And headed on our merry way,

We should have gone back,
We should have gone back the way we came,

It would have been ok,
You'd be here with me today,
It would have been ok,
If we'd have gone back the way we came,

We should have gone back,
We should have gone back the way we came.
Track Name: DYD
When you came to see me,
In my upstairs office,
And we talked about your progress,
We spoke long and clearly,
We saw eye to eye and,
We made plans to both move on,

Drink Yourself Dead,
Do Your Damnedest,
Dumb Yourself Down,

Now I'm laughing at you,
And your dumb impression,
Of my confrontational face,
I can see the elbows,
Digging in your ribs and,
I saw you egg the workers on,

Drink Yourself Dead,
Do Your Damnedest,
Dumb Yourself Down.
Track Name: If You Want Something Done
Well I can sit around here and wait forever,
Starring at stars for signs of lift off,
And then there would be another riot,
Any you would have to go, go and buy it,

If you want something done,
Do it yourself,
If you want something done,
Do it yourself,

And I don't want to hear that you really want to,
What are you waiting for? another eclipse?
And if there's a will you'll find a way,
So I'm not pissed off whenI say...

If you want something done,
Do it yourself,
If you want something done,
Do it yourself,

Sing it with me
If you want something done,
Do it yourself,
If you want something done,
Do it yourself,
Track Name: The Christmas Band
It was coming up to Christmas,
And the reindeer were tired of waiting,
So they climbed up the workshop,
To see what the elves were making,
They decided right then and there,
What they were going to do,
When the elves took their next chocolate break,
They'd break the door in two,

Dasher grabbed a drum kit,
And Vixen grabbed a bass,
Blitzen and Comet took guitars and ran about the place,
Rudolf looked around and found an mic and a stand,
For his red nose would help him,
To front The Christmas Band,

Back in the reindeer's stable,
Which was no renamed "The Hut",
Dancer and Prancer practiced moved,
While the band tunes up,
Donna kept security,
And barricaded the door,
Cupid wrote the lyrics,
While Rudolf practiced roars,

With Dasher on the drum kit,
And Vixen on the bass,
Blitzen and Comet shred guitars,
Melting snow without a trace,
Rudolf stands out front,
Like no human man can,
For his red nose helps him,
To front The Christmas Band,

Then some of Blitzen's feedback,
Woke Santa from his sleep,
He said "if you want to keep this gear,
You must practice thrice a week,
For a year your noisy jams I will endure,
And next year I'll book you,
For a rooftop world tour!"

With Dasher on the drum kit,
And Vixen on the bass,
Blitzen and Comet shred guitars,
Melting snow without a trace,
Rudolf stands out front,
Like no human man can,
For his red nose helps him,
To front The Christmas Band,

So listen out now on Christmas Eve,
For some Tinsel Reindeer Rock,
They'll be playing on your rooftop,
While Santa fills your socks,
There'll be Dasher on the drum kit,
There'll be Vixen on the bass,
There'll be Blitzen and Comet shredding guitars,
Melting snow without a trace,
Rudolf stands out front,
Like no human man can,
For his red nose helps him,
To front The Christmas Band.
