Track Name: One Too Many Jars
too much beer, but not more fear
you're ready for a fight
your hands are shaking and the plans you're making
will bear their fruits tonight
so curl your fingers and bunch your fists
you'll take the risks all right

ready for a punch-on, you're falling hard and fast
you're excited and you're drunk and you've had one too many jars
you're full drunk and you know it full bloody well

it's all good in collingwood
the blokes are on the piss
near victoria park with half a chance
you're going to take the risk
you'll make the bastards jump
curl your fingers and bunch your fists

ready for a punch-on, you're falling hard and fast
you're excited and you're drunk and you've had one too many jars
you're full drunk and you know it full bloody well

you're the black-eyed bruiser, ready for a scrum
you're grogged up and you're cruising
do as you will
two pints every hour, that's your rule of thumb
assert your righteous power
let the chalice spill
you're full drunk and you know it full bloody well

too much beer, but not more fear
you're ready for a fight
your hands are shaking and the plans you're making
will bear their fruits tonight
ready for a punch-on, you're falling hard and fast
you're excited and you're drunk and you've had one too many jars
you're full drunk and you know it full bloody well
and you know it full bloody well
you've had one too many jars
Track Name: Happens All the Time
how many trains on a railway system?
how many lies have i told?
how many times did i not listen?
how many coughs in a cold?
how many times did i get away with the truth

i've been waiting on the edge of your madness
i've seen sadness in your eyes
you were overcome by grief and despair
it's not fair, but it happens all the time

i ignored it, of course
pretended it wasn't there
this is all from the mouth of the horse
i swear that it's sincere
but, to be honest, it's not exactly true

i've been waiting on the edge of your madness
i've seen sadness in your eyes
you were overcome by grief and despair
it's not fair, but it happens all the time

i don't need glasses, i've got twenty-twenty eyesight
sometimes i choose, sometimes i lose, but i'll be alright
i'm waiting for a sign, i'm waiting for a twitch
i know you've got my back
but i've still got an itch to scratch

i've been waiting on the edge of your madness
i've seen sadness in your eyes
you were overcome by grief and despair
it's not fair, but it happens all the time

so tell me what motivates you
tell me what you think i should do
tell me how i can just sift through all your lies

i've been waiting on the edge of your madness
i've seen sadness in your eyes
you were overcome by grief and despair
it's not fair, but it happens all the time
Track Name: Suffer for My Sins
last night gave me rings around my eyes
too many drinks and a tram at 1am
i'm not going to excuse myself or apologise
it doesn't make a difference to you or i or them

i'll still suffer for my sins
i'll suffer for my sins

i've wandered across town full of grog
i've seen my friends coughing up their guts
i'm not sorry, even though i sometimes sob
i could apologise, but you know it wouldn't be enough

'cause i'll still suffer for my sins
i'll suffer for my sins

everything is just words to me
excuses, lies, apologies
i can't remember where i've been
but i know i'll suffer for my sins

last night gave me rings around my eyes
too many drinks and a tram at 1am
i'm not going to excuse myself or apologise
it doesn't make a difference to you or i or them

i'll still suffer for my sins
i'll suffer for my sins

we were walking and you were talking
about all the things you've done
the lies you've told and the people you've wronged
every single one
Track Name: Should I Have a Word?
you've been going strong for a year and a half
he's been laying it on, you've been taking it hard
he's got that worn out smile, he's worn it for a while
do you think that i should have a word?

should i have a word?
should i have a word?

i saw him in the pub on saturday
he says he doesn't want anything to change
despite what he says when he's talking, i can see that he's walking away

should i have a word?
should i have a word?

i'm fine where i am in the in-between
but, if i can, i'll forget the things i've seen
and the things he says when he's had too much to drink

you said that you've both had a change of heart
you're going to try to go right back to the start
even though the two of you are talking, i can see that it's falling apart

should i have a word?
should i have a word?
should i have a word?
should i have a word?
should i have a word?
