Track Name: Oh Paul
you could have had it all, maybe for a while you did
when money meant something, you were worth two million quid
when a challenge arose, you gave it your best shot
and your future seemed bright, even though you did not

on the world stage, you became a star
though your heart was broken by a yellow card
the world saw your tears, we all felt your pain
but who knew that the pressure would drive you insane?
and now you're drunk, feeling suicidal
because you got booked in the semi-final
twenty years ago... oh paul!

when the fog on your tyne is clear, you appear on television
you've put the worst behind you, and beaten your addiction
but before long, you've been proved wrong, the papers disagree
you've turned up at a crimescene as a photo opportunity
and now your days are wasted, aimless
you boast that you know the rich and famous
but it's all in your head... oh paul.
Track Name: Santiago
are you making those faces at me,
or are you really so bewildered
that your face is turning red
and you're sweating like a builder?
you've got a simple task,
explain to all around
how to save their own lives
when they plummet to the ground

but something isn't right...
it's time for you to stop
rotate 90 degrees
and then again, from the top

you're out of your depth at 40,000 feet, santiago
these are turbulent times, cabin staff to your seats, santiago

at the flight academy
did they call you a high flyer?
if so, then what went wrong?
or were you always this dire?
it's time to be a man
load some bags onto some shelves
those inflight magazines
won't distribute themselves

but something isn't right...
it's time for you to stop
rotate 90 degrees
and then again, from the top

you're out of your depth at 40,000 feet, santiago
these are turbulent times, cabin staff to your seats, santiago
Track Name: Rocket To Your Heart
so you're not doing too well
the doctors say it's terminal
there's one unorthodox cure
and I'm up for it if you are

because your heart's not pumping too good
blood isn't going where it should
if they're going to keep you alive
they need a man... on the inside

they're gonna put me on a rocket to your heart
and now I know that we will never be apart
and if I'm stuck doing this forever
at least I know that we're together

so I quit my job to work for you
and make sure that your body's doing what it should do
I'll never see my family, or ever see my friends
in fact I'll never see the outside world again...

so since I gave up everything for you, I must insist
from the bottom of your heart, that you answer me this
if I saved your life, when the outlook was grim
why do I have to work harder when you're with him?

they're gonna put me on a rocket to your heart
and now I know that we will never be apart
and if I'm stuck doing this forever
at least I know that we're together

they're gonna put me on a rocket to your heart
and now I know that we will never be apart
and if I'm stuck doing this forever
at least I know that we're together
Track Name: Stardate
I am frozen in time
because the journey is long
but my brain is still awake
so I'm writing this song
I feel the engines throb
and I hear the rockets fire
I'm on a transgalactic flight
fuelled by desire

and when I get there
when I find my way
when I reach my destination
I will say
hello

so as I travel through space
to your distant star
I think about the details
you've provided as to who you are
you say you like "music"
and "walks in the park"
you've got a good sense of humour
but you're afraid of the dark

so I hope we like each other when we meet
I hope our stars align and sparks fly and our lives are complete
if there's no connection, and my heart doesn't skip
it's a really really really really long return trip
Track Name: Supervolcano
It started many years ago
Subterranean rumblings far below
The earth split side to side
When two tectonic plates collide

They quaked and quivered and quailed
And the continental plate prevailed
It drove the oceanic down
And a mountain thrust up from the ground

Now we've got a genuine, bona fide, geologized, energized, oversized,
pressurized, sulfurized, volcanized

Supervolcano! Ka-ka-ka-ka-boom!
Supervolcano! Ka-ka-ka-ka-boom!
Any mortal man would cower
When this force displays its awesome power
Supervolcano! Ka-ka-ka-ka-boom!

Now there's one thing I must mention
It amounts to a common misconception
When I say supervolcano, I
Don't mean your typical Krakatoa

You'll shake and shiver with fear
If you listen long enough to hear
That by supervolcano I meant
It could wipe out a whole continent

If you've got a genuine, bona fide, geologized, energized, oversized,
pressurized, sulfurized, volcanized

Supervolcano! Ka-ka-ka-ka-boom!
Supervolcano! Ka-ka-ka-ka-boom!
Any mortal man would cower
When this force displays its awesome power
Supervolcano! Ka-ka-ka-ka-boom!

An event called the Toba eruption
Was a supervolcanic disruption
It was classified "mega-colossal"
Cause it made the landscape jump and jostle

This was one explosive spire
Worthy of the name of Vulcan, god of fire
With its volcanic winter in place
It exterminated sixty percent of the human race

It was a genuine, bona fide, geologized, energized, oversized,
pressurized, sulfurized, volcanized

Supervolcano! Ka-ka-ka-ka-boom!
Supervolcano! Ka-ka-ka-ka-boom!
Any mortal man would cower
When this force displays its awesome power
Supervolcano! Ka-ka-ka-ka-boom!

Lava and smoke and
Ash to choke on
Supervolcano
