about

Twelve new tracks (the Mega EP) and twelve selected tracks (the Origin Mix) by Meri that were released throughout the six years since she began creating and releasing music.

The first half, the Mega EP, features five completely new tracks that are fully produced versions of songs that are amongst the most popular of Meri's songs when she performs live. The seven remaining tracks being remastered singles that had been previously released exclusively through Meri's website throughout the last three years.

The second half, the Origin Mix, being her first ever song release as well as some of the most popular tracks from the original collections: Wandering Mini-P, Super EP, Pop Goes The TARDIS and Retro Sherbet. One track (Apple Tree) and three track versions (the radio edits of My Superman, Friday Viral and Nothing's In Your Way) having only been exclusively released through Meri's website before.

This is Meri's biggest body of work yet and a full sonic biography of the start of her musical career!

Track Name: Pizza And Ice Cream
I got a hard life, my stock keeps trending down right?
The news is dark like the bags under my eyes
I’m not Huntress, can’t twiddle on keys and make millions
Don’t do the new crime and I’m struggling with the toll road ride
I could get blue, so sad
But I found a love worth fighting for

As long as I got pizza and ice cream I still see the light
As long as I got pizza and ice cream I’ll be just
Fine fine fine fine fine
I’ll be just fine fine fine fine fine

Even in the gutter I flaunt that hobo chic swagger
Nicole Arbour can’t shame my greasy, fat smile
I may be downstream but I’m Paddle Pop paddling upstream
And I’m high on the margarita slice
I could give up and fall
But I found a love worth fighting for

As long as I got pizza and ice cream I still see the light
As long as I got pizza and ice cream I’ll be just
Fine fine fine fine fine
I’ll be just fine fine fine fine fine

I’ll fix my lack of sleep with pepperoni
Fix my lack of cash with mascarpone
Who needs friends when there’s anchovies?
My bikini body is made of candy

As long as I got pizza and ice cream I still see the light
As long as I got pizza and ice cream I’ll be just fine
As long as I got pizza and ice cream I still see the light
As long as I got pizza and I got ice cream I’ll be just
Fine

(Instrumental)

As long as I got pizza and ice cream I still see the light
As long as I got pizza and ice cream I’ll be just fine
As long as I got pizza and ice cream I still see the light
As long as I got pizza and I got ice cream I’ll be just
Fine fine fine fine fine
I’ll be just fine fine fine fine fine
I’ll be just fine
Track Name: Beat The Game
Life said “do the housework”
I said “I’m saving the world”
Life said “wash your old socks”
I said “I’m busy on the X-Box”
Life said “Write your notes up”
I said “time for Candy Crush”
Life said “the test is next week”
I said “I’ll hack into your grades sheet”

No way
Go away
I’m not gonna stop ‘til I beat the game
No way
Go away
I’m not gonna stop
I’m not gonna stop ‘til I beat the game

Life said “you’re wasting hours on nothing”
I said “hand-eye coordination”
Life said “you have to get a real job”
I said “I couldn’t hear you over Sega”
Life said “get off that web page”
I said “I’ll verse you in a two play”
Life said “you’ll have to take a pay cut”
I said “Soz, I’ve used all of your download up”

No way
Go away
I’m not gonna stop ‘til I beat the game
No way
Go away
I’m not gonna stop
I’m not gonna stop ‘til I beat the game
I’m not gonna stop ‘til I beat the game

Cause I’m Mario, Lara Croft and I’m building my Sims a loft
And I’m in a war with aliens and wizards and dragons and there’s
Super powers, turbo jets, Plants and Zombies, Grand Theft
I’m filling up these stadiums and
Bowser is punching way above his weight with peach

No way
Go away
I’m not gonna stop ‘til I beat the game
No way
Go away
I’m not gonna stop
I’m not gonna stop ‘til I beat the game
I’m not gonna stop ‘til I beat the game
I’m not gonna stop ‘til I beat the game
I’m not gonna stop ‘til I beat the game
I’m not gonna stop ‘til I beat the game
Track Name: Supernova
Some party
On an orange-ish shag
It’s eight PM and the TV’s already on
Games on my phone
Scoffing discount chips
I’m bored and I want to go home
Then there’s a click at the door
And I turn my head cause it’s yoga
And I hear ya
And it’s over
You knock me for ten

Oh it’s apparently a chemistry thing
Oh how you make my guts boom boom bang
Boom boom bang
Boom boom bang
You make my guts boom boom bang
Boom boom bang
Boom boom bang
You make my guts boom boom bang

You hit like a supernova
Just one flick had me falling over
And your eyes got me seeing stars
Shot me up floating out round Mars
Yeah you hit like a super
Like a super
Like a supernova
Yeah you hit like a super
Like a super
Like a supernova

Now I’m just like a kid eat of your hands just like a Tamagotchi
Feed me feed me please please please please
Like Pokémon you catch’em all
It’s a concussion now I’m floating round in space
On a Starfleet spaceship beaming out to
Meet your foreign race and eh

Oh it’s apparently a chemistry thing
Oh how you make my guts boom boom bang
Boom boom bang
Boom boom bang
You make my guts boom boom bang
Boom boom bang
Boom boom bang
You make my guts boom boom bang

You hit like a supernova
Just one flick had me falling over
And your eyes got me seeing stars
Shot me up floating out round Mars
Yeah you hit like a super
Like a super
Like a supernova
Yeah you hit like a super
Like a super
Like a supernova

Yeah you hit like a super
Like a super
Like a supernova
Yeah you hit like a super
Like a super
Like a supernova

You hit like a supernova
Just one flick had me falling over
And your eyes got me seeing stars
Shot me up floating out round Mars

Yeah you hit like a supernova
Chucking craters spitting smoke
And tore my universe apart
Cut dark matter through my heart
Dark matter through my heart
You cut dark matter through my heart
Track Name: Cookie Monster
Your sitting beside me in my kitchen you
You got your laptop out, I got my laptop out
We’re both getting distracted your
Your reading Mashable, I’m tumbling teenage posts
And we’re both adults now
We got some money coming
In and going out
Well kinda, you do at least
But I’ll still live at home
When I hit fifty years of age
Going at this rate

So people ask me
To switch the off button
Put back my guitar
Tell’em who I think I am and what I’m after
I tell’em late at night
I hit the cookie jar
Cause I’m a twenty-something Cookie Monster
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh I’m a Cookie Monster
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh I’m a Cookie Monster

You take your headphones off and I think
I better do that too and turn to chat to you
You’ve got some chocolate stuck on your teeth
I dive to grab the pack, you hold and kiss me back
And we’re both adults now
We like to hold each other close
When we’re home without the folks
Cause that can get awkward right? But
But we can’t procreate
When mum wants me to clean the plates
And dad just got home late

And so they ask me
To switch the off button
Put back my guitar
Tell’em who I think I am and what I’m after
I tell’em late at night
I hit the cookie jar
Cause I’m a twenty-something Cookie Monster
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh I’m a Cookie Monster
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh I’m a Cookie Monster

And sorry if that’s not the answer you were after
But I’m big and I’m furry and I get hungry at strange hours
Strange hours
And sorry mum if I’m not the best daughter
But it’s something that I’m trying to figure out
Still trying to figure out

When people ask me
To switch the off button
Put back my guitar
Tell’em who I think I am and what I’m after
I tell’em late at night
I hit the cookie jar
Cause I’m a twenty-something Cookie Monster
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh I’m a Cookie Monster
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh I’m a Cookie Monster
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh I’m a Cookie Monster
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh I’m a Cookie Monster
Track Name: Occupied
Watching dancing llama things on the internet
Searching for Clooney pics on the Instagram
Raiding the fridge straight after scoffing down food
I may not seem occupied, but I’m far too occupied to see you

Learning how to speak Pikachu in a day
Filling out the things I like on my Facebook page
Tooting out ABBA tunes through a kazoo
Though I may not seem occupied, I’m far too occupied to see you

Cause I would rather watch a rock in the hope that it will grow
Into a beautiful butterfly farting out rainbows
There was a time where I would stop what I would do
But not I’m just too occupied, far too occupied
To see you

It’s a pity Doctor Who needs to be re-watched
And my novelty pens need to be re-stocked
And I’ve decided I’m going to learn Kung Fu
Though I may not seem occupied, I’m far too occupied

And what a shame I’ve gained an interest in how to tie knots
And I’m starting a blog of drugged up Bieber shots
Then taking a virtual trip to Peru
Cause though I may not seem occupied, I’m far too occupied to see you

Cause I would rather watch a rock in the hope that it will grow
Into a beautiful butterfly farting out rainbows
There was a time where I would stop what I would do
But not I’m just too occupied

And I would rather watch a rock in the hope that it will grow
Into a beautiful butterfly farting out rainbows
There was a time where I would stop what I would do
But not I’m far too occupied, far far too occupied
Always too occupied
For you

Track Name: Macro
I’ll zoom in close and it’s still all perfect
Every single cell of your arms up to your neck
Makes me red just thinking about
How you’d kiss me on mine
I’m a pretty bad shot but the filters fix it
Even when it’s blurry I can still see it
Your chin, your lips
Almost too much at one time

Don’t never ever think what I’m saying is just words
They’re sounds falling uncensored from my thoughts
And I

I’ll zoom in close to macro
Cause you’re gorgeous, you’re gorgeous still
I like to get really close
In case you can’t tell
I’ll zoom in close to macro
On your gorgeous, on your gorgeous eyes
I like to freeze frame when you
Hold me tight
Cause you don’t need to pose to look good in a shot
You’re gorgeous just as you are

Focus in on your slightly bent smile
Glowing pink like your cheeks like a child
Makes me want to spin you
Around with me
Blur the useless world in the useless background
You’re all that I care about now
Standing still won’t keep me from
Feeling dizzy cause

Don’t never ever think what I’m saying is just words
They’re sounds falling uncensored from my thoughts
And I

I’ll zoom in close to macro
Cause you’re gorgeous, you’re gorgeous still
I like to get really close
In case you can’t tell
I’ll zoom in close to macro
On your gorgeous, on your gorgeous eyes
I like to freeze frame when you
Hold me tight
Cause you don’t need to pose to look good in a shot
You’re gorgeous just as you are
Oh you don’t need to pose to look good in a shot
You’re gorgeous just as you are

I’ll zoom in close to macro
Cause you’re gorgeous, you’re gorgeous still
I like to get really close
In case you can’t tell
I’ll zoom in close to macro
On your gorgeous, on your gorgeous eyes
I like to freeze frame when you
Hold me tight

(Your gorgeous, your gorgeous) Hold me tight
(Your gorgeous, your gorgeous) Hold me tight
Track Name: Comment Me
It used to be lines of exclamations
Which you’ve replaced with explanations
Your default was a chopped off head
But I never thought you’d really end so dead
Just XOZ me like before
Even though I don’t get what you use the Z for
And tell me how emoticons are lame
When you put one beside your name

Cause I’m getting sick of this
Serious business
I’m barely sticking round here for

Comment me
Be my friend
Then poke me with some
Virtual crap again woah
Can’t you see
That I’m losing score
And I’d do anything
To be like we were before

Send me pictures of animals in clothes
Or vegetables stuck in a sexual pose
And links to bands that I know that you
Aren’t cool enough to listen to

Not all this nothingness
And boring excuses
I’m barely sticking round here for

Comment me
Be my friend
Then poke me with some
Virtual crap again woah
Can’t you see
That I’m losing score
And I’d do anything
To be like we were before

Ooo Oo

Remember back to the Facebook chats where you’d pop up just so you’d say hi
Not to ask for a favour or to log off when I log online?
Remember back to the days where it was you and I
Skating through virtual parks together? When you post it lasts forever, right?
That’s what they say, we’re still the same in a database somewhere in cyberspace
Can I pull you out and plug you in again to the person I remember
The person you were then, to us together?

Comment me
Be my friend
Then poke me with some
Virtual crap again woah
Can’t you see
That I’m losing score
And I’d do anything
To be like we were before

Comment me
And be my friend
Then poke me with some
Virtual crap again woah
Cause can’t you see
That I’m losing score
And I’d do anything
To be like we were before

Like we were before
Like we were before
I’d do anything
To be like we were before
Like we were before
Like we were before
I’d do anything
To be like we were before
Track Name: Not Gonna Be Me
Lying in bed in my home socks
It’s three AM in the morning
Staring at a screen til my eyes are red
Looking like I’m an inch from dead
But I’m living

Putting my money where my mouth is
Grinding out the work day grind
Working overtime
Cause I know I need to
Give this everything I have
I’m bleeding through the journey to reach the end
And though I’ll screw it up then
I’ll suck it in and
And fix it up again

Cause this could be my break
I’ll see it to the end
I’m not gonna let things pass me by again
I’ve slipped into the cracks
Backed out before the win
I’m not gonna let things pass me by again

That’s not gonna be me this time
That’s not gonna be me this time
That’s not gonna be me this time
That’s not gonna be me this time

Things are getting blurry and
The clock is playing games with my mind (oh)
I’m everything but ready and
Anything but keen to burn the night (oo)

Putting my money where my mouth is
Grinding out the work day grind
Working overtime
Cause I know I need to
Give this everything I have
I’m close to lost in unconsciousness
The caffeine’s spent and I’m swimming through cement
But I gotta push through this

Cause this could be my break
I’ll see it to the end
I’m not gonna let things pass me by again
I’ve slipped into the cracks
Backed out before the win
I’m not gonna let things pass me by again

That’s not gonna be me this time
That’s not gonna be me this time
That’s not gonna be me this time
That’s not gonna be me this time

Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh

That’s not gonna be me this time
That’s not gonna be me this time
That’s not gonna be me this time
That’s not gonna be me this time
That’s not gonna be me
Track Name: Zombie Man
Hey there zombie man could you make some time for me?
I know that you’re undead so you don’t have space to breathe
But, between eating brains and dragging round your feet
I’d be stoked if you could make some time to meet

Ever since you’ve been bitten by the virus of being all grown up
I never get to see you round to talk about just stupid stuff
And I miss that lame board game that you always made me play with you
And that strawberry sundae and our failed attempts on YouTube

And it’s fine zombie man
Take your important zombie badge
Go do important zombie work
Follow your zombie dreams
I don’t want to fight a war
If you win I’ll be happy for you
I’d just love to be a part of your world too

Hey there zombie man with your fort and your gargoyle dog
The spears you put above your door make it impossible to knock
I know that doom’s a full time thing and there’s mortals left to club
But I’d still be keen for tea sometime if your schedule opens up

Ever since you’ve been bitten by the virus of being all grown up
I never get to see you round to talk about just stupid stuff
And I miss our pointless movie nights where you’d talk right through the film
And hiding notes in your birthday gifts, with inside jokes and old cartoons

And it’s fine zombie man
Take your important zombie badge
Go do important zombie work
Follow your zombie dreams
I don’t want to fight a war
If you win I’ll be happy for you
I’d just love to be a part of your world

I don’t want to fight a war
If you win I’ll be happy for you
I’d just love to be a part of your world too
Track Name: Block By Block
While you’d be building cities
I’d be knocking them down
While you’d stack the little pieces up
I’d dig the big ones out
and I’d get so strung up in rambling
Bout the unfair way things happen in this life
That you’d stare me down like a fix-it man
And plan how to piece me back right

Then block by block
Brick by brick
You’d build me back up
Bit by bit
And pull me out of my head
Show me how beautiful the world is
Open up my eyes again

Block by block
Brick by brick
I fall too fast into
Getting caught up in things but you
Pull me out of my head
Tell me that the world is made of Lego
And that I can build it up again
I can build it up again

While you’d make a Lego house
I’d make it a Lego arcade machine
We’d argue over the colours of the walls
And the crooked chimney
And I’d get so involved in proclaiming
How that crooked chimney should be set straight
That I’d slam my fist down hard enough
That the house would tumble and break

Then block by block
Brick by brick
You’d build me back up
Bit by bit
And pull me out of my head
Show me how beautiful the world is
Open up my eyes again

Block by block
Brick by brick
I fall too fast into
Getting caught up in things but you
Pull me out of my head
Tell me that the world is made of Lego
And that I can build it up again
I can build it up again

I can build it up again
I can build it up again
I can build it up again
Track Name: The Best Bit
The cupcake boxes are lying around like lazy Lego blocks
We’re busy wrecking the place ignoring the timer clock go off
You’re dunked in pink frosting mix staring out like a guilty kid
And it won’t come off no matter how hard you wipe
And that’s the best bit

Woah we’re not slowing down
Woah we’ll make chefs yet
Woah two feet off the ground
Living in the now
And that’s the best bit

There’s flour everywhere like we’ve been hit by snow
And the colourings have turned the mixing bowl into a rainbow
I gasp as I see eggs flying and close my eyes as they hit
The kitchen’s on fire but we’re laughing
And that’s the best bit

Woah we’re not slowing down
Woah we’ll make chefs yet
Woah two feet off the ground
Living in the now
And that’s the best bit
Woah we’re not slowing down
Woah we’ll make chefs yet
Woah two feet off the ground
Living in the now
And that’s the best bit

Woah we’re spent, flopped on the tiles like mops
Woah we’ll probably spend an hour cleaning up
Woah we’re groaning scooping up
The soap and towels and brushes
Then I see you wink and there’s water flying round
And I hear you screaming out

Woah we’re not slowing down (we’re not slowing down)
Woah we’ll make chefs yet (we’ll make chefs)
Woah two feet off the ground (two feet off the ground)
Living in the now
And that’s the best bit
Woah we’re not slowing down (we’re not slowing down)
Woah we’ll make chefs yet (we’ll make chefs)
Woah two feet off the ground (two feet off the ground)
Living in the now
And that’s the best bit
That’s the best bit
Track Name: Tamagotchi
You used to whip me up from a stupid slump and take me dancing
Show me secret hangouts, kiss me quick when no one’s looking
I swore I won’t forget our flawless road trip up the coast
And I haven’t, but it only makes it worse cause

Now you don’t do anything at all (nothing)
Just sit and whine and talk about yourself (you’re boring)

I don’t know what to do
This problem’s got me (got me)
You’ve turned from my man
To my Tamagotchi
I don’t know what to do
This problem’s got me (got me) good
You turned from my man to my Tamagotchi
You turned from my man to my Tamagotchi

You used to be the one who gave me strength to ride the coaster
And now you’re chucking up just thinking of a slight adventure
You must be drowned in shit cause you’re always ringing in you’re sick
For a full grown man dam baby, you need help with everything (And I mean everything)

Now you don’t do anything at all (nothing)
Just sit and whine and talk about yourself (you’re boring)

I don’t know what to do
This problem’s got me (got me)
You’ve turned from my man
To my Tamagotchi
I don’t know what to do
This problem’s got me (got me) good
You turned from my man to my Tamagotchi
You turned from my man to my Tamagotchi

What you want me to clean you?
Getting hungry want me to feed you?
That’s not my deal
What you feeling sleepy too?
Want me to flick the switch for you?
Well that’s not my deal

I don’t know what to do
This problem’s got me (got me)
You’ve turned from my man
To my Tamagotchi
I don’t know what to do
This problem’s got me (got me) good
You turned from my man to my Tamagotchi
You turned from my man to my Tamagotchi
You turned from my man to my Tamagotchi x2
Track Name: Block Breaker
Oh my oh no, this you and me thing is stalling
Oh my oh no, this L-O-V-E is failing
Oh my on no, I think that we’re falling out of love
Out of love, out of love
It’s dangerous

Oh my oh no, we built a fort together
Oh my oh no, pinky promised it’s forever
Oh my oh no, I think that we’re both getting bored
Getting bored, yeah I’m bored
This ain’t meant to happen

Falling into bits like block breaker bricks
Like block breaker bricks oh my oh no
We’re losing it, I feel every hit
We’re falling into bits oh my oh no
Smashed like block breaker, block breaker, block breaker
Smashed like block breaker, block breaker, block breaker

Oh my oh no, we’ve trashed the life plans we scripted
Oh my oh no, our perfect little world has shifted
Oh my oh no, I think that we’re close to breaking off
Breaking off, breaking off
It’s all crumbling (down)

Falling into bits like block breaker bricks
Like block breaker bricks oh my oh no
We’re losing it, I feel every hit
We’re falling into bits oh my oh no
Smashed like block breaker, block breaker, block breaker
Smashed like block breaker, block breaker, block breaker

Our hearts could be breaking
Is it worth saving?
It’s not a chance I’m taking
Cause I feel nothing

Falling into bits like block breaker bricks
Like block breaker bricks oh my oh no
We’re losing it, I feel every hit
We’re falling into bits oh my oh no
Smashed like block breaker, block breaker, block breaker
Smashed like block breaker, block breaker, block breaker

Falling into bits like block breaker bricks
Like block breaker bricks oh my oh no
We’re losing it, I feel every hit
We’re falling into bits oh my oh no
Track Name: Xena
Cause I’m a warrior
You can’t take me
You can’t take me out
Cause I’m a warrior
This can’t break me
This can’t break me down

You may have thought the memory of your love would be stronger
That you could stab me and leave me to bleed
But I’m gonna take my pride and push past it to patch the puncture
And go back to me, me

Cause I’m, I’m the sort that gets back up
And I’ve, I’ve turned from road kill to Xena
I’m Xena, I’m Xena

Cause I’m a warrior
I don’t need you
I don’t need you now
Cause I’m a warrior
Cause I’m a warrior
I can push the churning feelings that you left me with out

Cause I’m, I’m the sort that gets back up
And I’ve, I’ve turned from road kill to Xena
I’m Xena, I’m Xena

Love can drag me down, but it’s all done now
I’m an Amazon warrior beneath my chest
This ain’t so bad I can take it
This ain’t so bad I can take it
Medieval worlds, lands of beasts and gods
But you’re just a boy and I am strong
I got a Chakram and this ain’t so bad, I can take it

Cause I’m, I’m the sort that gets back up
And I’ve, I’ve turned from road kill to Xena
I’m Xena, I’m Xena
Track Name: She's Blue ('I'm Blue' Parody)
Yo listen up, here’s a story
About a police box that lives in a blue world
And all time and all space
And everywhere she waits
Is just blue, like her
Inside and outside
Blue her panels
Blue bars on her windows
And blue framed doors
Cause everything is blue that’s hers
And herself
When she’s left waiting around
Cause she ain’t got nobody to listen

She’s blue dabadee dabadie
dabadee dabadie dabadee dabadie
dabadee dabadie dabadee dabadie
dabadee dabadie dabadee dabadie
She’s blue dabadee dabadie
dabadee dabadie dabadee dabadie
dabadee dabadie dabadee dabadie
dabadee dabadie dabadee dabadie

Blue like The Siren or Sontaran armour
Blue like a slim Dorian Maldovar
Blue, how she feels being taken by Torchwood
Or in the pit of an impossible planet
Watching out like the blue eye of a Dalek
Forgotten and left all alone just waiting
Blue from locking up the light and life inside
Blue like the feeling of being left behind

She’s blue dabadee dabadie
dabadee dabadie dabadee dabadie
dabadee dabadie dabadee dabadie
dabadee dabadie dabadee dabadie
She’s blue dabadee dabadie
dabadee dabadie dabadee dabadie
dabadee dabadie dabadee dabadie
dabadee dabadie dabadee dabadie

Inside and outside
Blue her panels
Blue bars on her windows
And blue framed doors
Cause everything is blue that’s hers
And herself
When she’s left waiting around
Cause she ain’t got nobody to listen

She’s blue dabadee dabadie
dabadee dabadie dabadee dabadie
dabadee dabadie dabadee dabadie
dabadee dabadie dabadee dabadie
She’s blue dabadee dabadie

Track Name: Exterminate
We’re the trash cans with the nobbly bits,
Blue eye telescopes staring right at you,
Funny voices, hands that are plungers and whisks
Not so funny when we go and zap you

Silly human beings, thinking they could make us
Iron soldiers right? Yeah, you see why they’re so worthless
I think that the Earth has had enough of their existence
Which is why we’ll gladly go and get rid of them

Exterminate the human race
It’s time we rise in their place
Exterminate the human race
Bow down to the emperor
This world is a Dalek’s world

Exterminate, exterminate, exterminate
This world is a Dalek’s world
Exterminate, exterminate, exterminate
This world is a Dalek’s world

There’s the Doctor right, he gets mixed up in things
Just cause of this time war we have, which by the way we’re gonna win
He may have foiled us once, he may have foiled us twice
But he’s just delaying our glorious, inevitable rise

Our plans are simply getting more ingenious
Soon enough he’ll be wiped right off the planet
Without the Doctor, the humans are hopeless
Not much of a threat, more just an annoyance

Exterminate the human race
It’s time we rise in their place
Exterminate the human race
Bow down to the emperor
This world is a Dalek’s world

Exterminate, exterminate, exterminate
This world is a Dalek’s world
Exterminate, exterminate, exterminate
This world is a Dalek’s world

Dalek Sec had some ideas
Human-Dalek hybrid traitors
He thought that we should change the race
But he was wrong
We were born to hate

Exterminate the human race
It’s time we rise in their place
Exterminate the human race
Bow down to the emperor
This world is a Dalek’s world
Track Name: Baby, Get Me A TARDIS
Valentine’s Day you got me flowers
Pretty pink roses and sweet love letters
Easter Day you got me chocolates
Yeah they were the good ones in the shiny wrappers
But on my Birthday, I said “Babe
I can see those cute little boxes that you brought me
They’re probably something nice like jewellery
But that just don’t cut it for me”

If you really want my love
Wanna show me what I mean to you
Then you gotta lift your game up
Take it to the next rank, baby you can do this

Oh, I wanna travel through time and space
Be the hero who saves the day
So if you wanna do this yo
Baby, get me a TARDIS
Oh, I like gifts and cellophane
And feeling that special way
So if my heart’s your target yo
Baby, get me a TARDIS, Oh
If you wanna do this
Baby, get me a TARDIS
If my heart’s your target
You know what I want

You’re not time lord material clearly
Your screwdriver’s not even sonic, not even nearly
But I can wait it out or teleport a century
If I’ve got a blue police box to take me
I know you’re spun out, it’s a lot to take in too
But I believe in the future and past of us, I believe in you
So take the next step, treat it like a recipe
If you want a literal forever with me

If you really want my love
Wanna show me what I mean to you
Then you gotta lift your game up
Take it to the next rank, baby you can do this

Oh, I wanna travel through time and space
Be the hero who saves the day
So if you wanna do this yo
Baby, get me a TARDIS
Oh, I like gifts and cellophane
And feeling that special way
So if my heart’s your target yo
Baby, get me a TARDIS, Oh
If you wanna do this
Baby, get me a TARDIS
If my heart’s your target
You know what I want

Cause I don’t think a hundred years is long enough for you and me, no
Cause I need you to be with me through war and peace,
Kings and presidents, space invasions, robots, Daleks and anything at all

I wanna travel through time and space
Be the hero who saves the day
So if you wanna do this yo
Baby, get me a TARDIS
Oh, I like gifts and cellophane
And feeling that special way
So if my heart’s your target yo
Baby, get me a TARDIS, Oh
If you wanna do this
Baby, get me a TARDIS
If my heart’s your target
You know what I want

Oh- If you wanna do this

Track Name: Friday Viral (Radio Edit)
I don’t care if I’ve got to steal a neighbour’s cat
If I’ve got to wear meet or a telephone hat
I don’t care if I’ve got to find a Honey Badger
Or cry over Britney shaving her hair off
It’s A-OK to make a Harry Potter play
Channel suicide like Lana Del Rey
I’ll be flying down like Superman
Evolutionising dance
Elevator pranks
She bang she bang

Mystery guitar woman, baby baby
Throw my own green tea party- maybe?
Will I be a Mac or a PC?
Storm a Taylor Swift acceptance speech

Like a boss, like Jizz, I’m on a boat

Track Name: Nothing's In Your Way (Radio Edit)
It’s as easy when you’re freaked out to freak out
As it is to play when you’re gonna win
And you know it
Cause it’s rigged and you’ve got it
Handshakes, contracts, all in the pocket
The real world ain’t mapped out
There ain’t no deal that’ll make it do
Exactly what you want it to
So it looks like it’s up to you

To break it down
Into baby steps
Kill’em all one by one
Sort it out
Untangle
All the problems that may come

Bro
Don’t listen to things they say
Karate chop all the way
There’s no plank that you can’t break
And there’s nothing that’s in your way
When things get hard to take
You’re a ninja in the wake
Show’em all that you won’t break
And there’s nothing that’s in your way

There’s nothing that’s in your way
Kick kick punch punch
There’s nothing that’s in your way
Gonna get it done done
There’s nothing that’s in your way
Kick kick punch punch
There’s nothing that’s in your way
Gonna get it done done done

So all the time lists and to dos
Haven’t quite been seen to the end
It’s probably time to do them
Cause no one’s waging bets on your resolutions
See that thing you want
It ain’t gonna sit and wait all day
Cause neat things like that tend to stray
And you don’t want it to get away

So break it down
Into baby steps
Kill’em all one by one
Sort it out
Untangle
All the problems that may come

Bro
Don’t listen to things they say
Karate chop all the way
There’s no plank that you can’t break
And there’s nothing that’s in your way

Gonna get it done done
There’s nothing that’s in your way
Kick kick punch punch
There’s nothing that’s in your way
Gonna get it done done done

Get’em all you know you can take’m
Catch’em like flies in your chopsticks bring’em
Down down not like a crane up
Down down like a touchdown
Get’em all you know you can take’m
Catch’em like flies in your chopsticks bring’em
Down down not like a crane up
Down down like a touchdown

Don’t listen to things they say
Karate chop all the way
There’s no plank that you can’t break

Track Name: Dam Good Friend
Cause you’re totally frustrating, you never get things done
You always make excuses and their not even good ones
We should fully cut it off- never speak again
But I’m totally devoted, I’m such a dam good friend
Such a dam good friend

I’ll stay online for ages, I’ll think what I should say
You probably barely read it but I’ll write it anyway
You log off conversations when I’m just about to send
You’re lucky I still bother I’m such a dam good friend
Such a dam good friend

I’ll call the phone it disconnects, I’ll even try and send you txts
It takes a week to even get in touch enough for us to set
A place and a date but you’ll show up late in the end
And I’ll just sit and I’ll just wait cause I’m such a dam good friend
Such a dam good friend

We’ll find a place and order drinks, you always get that one that stinks
I always laugh and ask you why then you always let me have a try
You won’t get through that single glass even though we’ll spend
Half the day in the bar acting like we’re dam good friends
Dam good friends

Cause you’re totally frustrating, you never get things done
You always make excuses and their not even good ones
We should fully cut it off- never speak again
But I’m totally devoted, I’m such a dam good friend

We should fully cut it off- never speak again
But man, I think I love you, you’re just the best dam friend
Track Name: Share My Time
Come sit with me
Decrypting poetry all day long
Plaiting plaits
And tying bow cause there’s nothing going on
No one comes to rescue
Trapped fair maidens oh so shy
When life moves so quickly
There’s no space to watch the sky

Cause I’m high above
In my castle in my tower
And I’m twiddling thumbs
Turning minutes into hours
And I don’t know if you’ll ever have the time
But if you’re free
Then I would love for you to share some of mine
If you’re free
Then I would love for you to share some of mine

Come tell me all your stories
And I’ll tell you dozens more
Tales of happy ever after
Queens and folklore
But lords and dukes and princes like you
Must prioritise
I’ll blow bubbles out my window
And watch days of years go by

Cause I’m high above
In my castle in my tower
And I’m twiddling thumbs
Turning minutes into hours
And I don’t know if you’ll ever have the time
But if you’re free
Then I would love for you to share some of mine
If you’re free
Then I would love for you to share some of mine

Some of mine
Some of mine
Some of mine
Track Name: Apple Tree
I don’t mean to be forceful but I bough a leash,
It’s got a really nice tag with your name,
I installed a camera, you know, just to check,
That things between us are still the same

Don’t sit under the apple tree
With anyone else but me,
Cause in order to keep things fine
You’ll have to understand you’re mine
Every way but legally
You’re mine
It’s an ownership made mutually

I don’t mean to threaten, these things you’d never do,
But in case you did, I’ve got a bigger budget than you,
I just want to get my point across, want to make it clear,
That apart from my mafia friends, you’ve got nothing to fear

So, don’t sit under the apple tree
With anyone else but me,
Cause in order to keep things fine
You’ll have to understand you’re mine
Every way but legally
You’re mine
It’s an ownership made mutually

It’s time we share a diary, you can ask to enter a date,
You can do almost anything at almost any rate

But, don’t sit under the apple tree
With anyone else but me,
Cause in order to keep things fine
You’ll have to understand you’re mine
Every way but legally
You’re mine
It’s an ownership made mutually

You’re mine
Remember, my dad owns Telstra,
You’re mine,
Limbs like branches are so easy to snap,
Don’t sit, don’t sit, don’t sit, don’t sit
Unless you want a disability benefit,
Don’t sit, don’t sit, don’t sit, don’t sit
With anyone else but me
