Track Name: I Am The Mountain
I AM The Mountain

Old man had a window
But now it's bricked in
Used to sit by the window
Watch the spinifex roll in
All that's left is just a masa dem nada
They could've saved it
if they tried a bit harder
Even the fat cats are now
Thin on the ground
They shoulda listened to the Ibis
When they suddenly hit town
Al I'm hearing is I told you so's
I told you so
I told you so
Him seh yeah

I am the mountain and
I am the sea
You can walk on the water
And climb over me

There were cedars to horizon
Sun never hit the ground
There's no pop in the dirt now
No drop in the cloud
Feelin' abandon like a
Beaten-up boxer
They've fallen deaf
When opportunity knocksa
Would not know a good thing if it
Was half way up their ass
Here it comes now just
Step out of the way
And Let it pass
Misspelt graffiti bubblin'
Underneath my skin
Yeah we used to get along
But now the humour's wearing thin
All I'm hear in is I told you so's
I told you so
I told you so yeah yeah

I am the mountain
And I am the sea
You can walk on the water
And climb over me

Hey hey they've run down the heroes
Who's gonna save us
From the danger as we sail
Over the edge of the wine-dark sea
Chase down the autograph of a zero
You know we're in trouble
When we're holding
The celebrity chef up
As someone to be
So take a photo of
Your plate of food
Put your neck out
You can feel the mood
The bottom 20 really ready
A sight so pretty
When they come to
Burn you city down

I am the mountain
And I am the sea
You can walk on the water
Climb over me

But don't you try to reason
Reason with the demons
In your mind
Let them run their course
They'll be gone in time

I am the mountain
And I am the sea
You can walk on the water
And climb over me
Track Name: Po-Gangstas
Po-Gangstas

Catch every headlight hit my window
I can’t sleep tonight, I can’t sleep tonight
When I look outside you’ve crashed the car again
What will I do with you now that you’ve gone
You stagger in drunk with your hand painted black
From the stencil you left at the station

Tonight it’s raining and the police are warm and dry
With some hot chips and cocoa inside

They’re hiding in the cracks all over town
It’s a fight you can’t win so keep your head down
Fight you can’t win so keep it down

We can’t wait to be free
Just got to be free
In Babylon by the sea you’re just a kitty in a tree
And they just can’t wait to take you down down

Tonight it’s raining and the police are warm and dry
With some hot chips and cocoa inside

It’s time to mash up the place
we take that smile off their face
Yeah yeah yeah

Can’t wait to be free, free yeah

There’s your brother sittin’ on Redfern Street
Smokin’ White Ox in the sun
That’s all it takes for the uniform kid
To step up and they point their gun
They’re so active in this part of town
Shooting’ and a Lootin’ just for fun
They got the blazin’ tasers and the capsicum sprays
Because they’re all around five foot one

Tonight it’s raining and the police are warm and dry
With some hot chips and cocoa inside

It’s time to mash up the place
We take that smile off their face
Yeah yeah yeah

Can’t wait to be free, free yeah
Track Name: Bad For Business
Bad For Business

That’s bad, that’s bad
for business don’t ya know
Don’t ya know

Oh no no, kitchen sippin’
Bitchen in the kitchen
Trickle down dick around
It’s back to penny pinchin’
No time for thinkin’, and no time for dream
Just get to the floor and man the machine
We’re full-time workers in homeless shelters
Huffin’ and puffin’ ‘bout the deal they dealt us

Man on the street he knows it’s bad for business
Now watch him as he goes against his own self-interest here

Anything else would be bad for business don’t ya know

Six out of seven days worked to the bone
Standing up asleep on the bus ride home
You’re my hobbled slave, haven’t you heard?
You belong to me now
You, you dirty bird
Bossman’s talkin’ bout use your imagination
Well I can’t sleep in the car no more
It’s out of registration
He ask you to jump, you say how high
But when the bright day come
You grow some wings and fly

Man on the street he knows it’s bad for business
But still he’ll probably go against his own self-interest
And that’s good for business
They send the poor boys off to die

Anything else would be bad for business don’t ya know

Hear that beast knockin’ at ya door
Gonna grab you by the throat and nail ya to the floor
You even dream about you wanna run away
Save your legs for the brighter day

Day to day come what may
There’s always the brighter day x 2

Sell you the air that you’re breathin’
Leave it un checked its a greed-a-thon
It’s tongue-in-cheek when they sell you the T.I.N.A.

Do what the Mama Gaia sey x 3

Destroy this business model or it’ll all just stop
Track Name: Night To Day
Night to day
When I eat ‘em it’s for down down down
Night to day
Make my blue eyes, my blue eyes brown

Lyin’ on the beach, I’m doin’ backstroke in the sand
Feeling’ every grain now as they tumble down my hand
The people on the island wanna know from where I came
I said I’m aimin’ like a shamen
Wanna change my name to Shaing
Things be gettin’ heated
Things be gettin’ tight
Multiplyin’ feet begin to shuffle in the night
Their tongues are fast and when they speak
They’re hard to understand
Until they put me on their shoulders
And start singin’ you de man

Make my blue eyes brown when i eat them down
Down down I eat them down
Make my blue eyes brown when i eat them down
Down down I eat them down

Night to day
When I eat ‘em it’s for down down down
Night to day
Make my blue eyes, my blue eyes brown

(Gina Mitchell toastin’)

This here style, it is my signature
Original, jazz hands, Al Jolson singin’ at ya
when i come around
Estoy muy lejo de mi casa
Just take it slow try not to move
And don’t you make a fuss now
I got my soul back with a soul clap
start the car, tip out the club
We’re goin’ back to Bobby Womack’s
Cut a track with Mr Lomax, yeah yeah
Cut a track with Mr Lomax

Cos when I come around
I’m gonna pick myself right up and eat them down
Down down I eat them down
