Track Name: I Drank The Levellers' Rider
This story starts way back when we were wet behind the ears
As you can imagine, I'm going back some years
A band that we looked up to said 'Come and do a show'
Got there nice and early, couldn't wait to get our go
But then the management came in and said 'You cannot play,
We're just more important and we always get our way'
Looking round backstage, we found a trunk of beer,
We're not leaving here with nothing, so empty it in here and...

I drank The Levellers' rider

Scrolling forward now and we're about to play the Daze
They change their minds again, the guitar stays in it's place
You wouldn't think the management would pull that kind of stunt
By all accounts he's a really nice bloke
But at least Fleece give him the stink finger
At least Fleece give hum the stink finger
We were older and wiser, or at least that's what we thought
But you couldn't say that of the people that we brought
The rider was left out again and those punk hippy ravers
Couldn't live with themselves if they'd left all that Stella

And they drank the Levellers' rider...

Just the recent past some rainy festy in September
Trapped in a portacabin surrounded by water
Stage hit by lightning, ran out of cider
What's that floating past?
It's The Levellers' rider!


If you get to meet your idols maybe miss that meeting
It's more than likely hat they'll be disappointing
I know I should have seen it from their point of view
And I'm truly sorry if I've done the same to you
Track Name: Anarchist in Homebase
Don't wanna be an anarchist in Homebase
Just working and getting off of my face
Thought my life it night be something special
Not mad, dead or famous
Woke up looking like Frank from Shameless
These comparisons just aren't that helpful
I miss those stupid conversations
When we were trying to change the nation
Things you kids don't talk about these days
World powers sign up for Armageddon
While you're choosing your wedding ring
Symptoms of our cultural maliase

Sell your body, sell your soul
This power will set you free
Sell your body, sell your soul
I'm Mammon. come with me
When it's time for us to clock out
We can go to sleep
Sell your body, sell your soul
I'm Mammon come with me

You're going to wait a long time (wait a long time)
You're going to wait a long time for me TIMES 2
Some might say our feudal past was just white mans slavery
60, 70 hours
You're going to wait a long time at this rate
To be free

Electric-Cool-Aid-Acid-Test put me off the Marxists,
Listened to the anarchists
I suppose my good intentions turned to dust
Working in a warehouse,hiding in the toilet playing Tetris
Trying to pay my debts off
No-one's ever going to pay me for these songs

Well I could live ok on no money
I just had to get out to escape daytime TV
You know you're just too lazy it's the English disease
Work faster before we're all talking Chinese
You know the banks won't lend though there's sharks at the door
The system collapsed so they just paid themselves more
And now we've proved the rich are exempt from laws
It seems they're only there to punish the poor
