Track Name: Pork Pie Hat
I've got a Pork Pie Hat,
Like J. Robert Oppenheimer...
Track Name: I'm Sorry To Hear You're a Racist
Then you decide you haven't come here for nothing!
Your eyes start to bulge,
Your lungs start to huffin',
You pull up your scarf so your message is faceless,
And yell at the sky:
'GOD, LOVE ME, I'M A RACIST!'

I'm sorry to hear you're a racist.
I'm sorry that you have no purpose.
Track Name: The Clown (aka The Onesie Song)
I've got a talent that defines me,
Singing to the ads on the TV!
Track Name: The End Of Dig Niddy
Your head bone's connected to your arse bone,
Where's your backbone, buddy?
Where's your backbone, buddy?
Track Name: Rupert's Tunnel Of Love
Order what you like from the menu, my love. I'm paying...thanks to you...
Track Name: Call To Arms
Light up the beacons and make them bright...
