Track Name: Demonic Dinner Dance
Intrepidation, that's the word that's on my lips.
One moments pleasure, a lifetime on your girlfriends lips
One dull evening, that was all it took to snap

Now it's over, looking forward never looking back.

Dance Demons Dance, take your final stance
Before you go down, hit the ground and dance
Demonic Dinner Dance

An invitation, that's the thing I dread the most
An evenings terror conducted by the handsome host
One more bad feeling, that was all it took to break
A fragile friendship that had taken many years to make.

Dance demons dance, take your final stance
Before you go down, hit the ground and dance
Demonic Dinner Dance.
Track Name: Seating Plan I
You say that I'm the most important person there
So why must I have the furthest away chair
Actions speak louder than the words of men
You told it all when you revealed the seating plan.
Track Name: Camp David
Let me tell you about a guy I know
He's camp as Christmas but without the snow
Claiming to be a virgin but you'd never know

Coz his whole chat is like a porno show

Camp David
In a world of his own
He'll bring the conversation down
Camp David
Is eager to shock
He'll make the conversation stop

Let me tell you 'bout a guy I met
See up in business selling hats for gents
Claims to be A-Sexual but appears as bent
From the devil's loin
but thinks he is heaven sent

Camp David
In a world of his own
He'll bring the conversation down
Camp David
Is eager to shock
He'll make the conversation stop.
Track Name: Seating Plan II
You took the time to assign me my own chair
Yet when I speak to you I'm greeted with blank stares
You can't recall when we met or who I am
Though we met many times before the seating plan.
Track Name: Forgotten Face
Some faces launch a thousand ships
Your voage never left
Nothing to do with looks rather

You never passed the identity test

Some we have never met before
Feelings of deja-vu still abound
Some have met you 13 times or more
Requests of verification still confound
Our computer drew a blank
Scouring your name age and rank
Dreams of recognition sank
All the gigs of cyberspace
Trawling all our database
Could not recall
the make-up of your face

Every time you meet new people
Recognition is misplaced
They proclain from every steeple
Here lies the forgotton face.
Track Name: Last Word Freak
Last word freak is a dog with a bone
Who won't shut up
She tells others what to do

Wish she'd give up and leave the room

Last word freak is a dog with a bone
Who won't shut up
She must win, you'll have no choice
Loves the sound of her own voice

Last word freak, last word freak
Last word freak is a dog with a bone
SHUT UP!

I would holiday in the South of France
Given even half a chance
But not if you were there
After one day I'd be bored

First plane home, straight out of town
Connection booked, deposit down
I'll do better things with my year
Than have you whisper
or shout in my ear.
Track Name: High Maintenance Girlfriend
From the first moment that we met
I knew that trouble would emerge
And from that moment

Our relationship was always on the edge
Of breakdown in communication
You cover up with smears and lies
And when you couldn't win with words
You forced your man to cut all ties

I'm too numb to despise, your campain,
Of smears, of lies, your aphid disguise
Your attempts at the truth this time
Enough of your lies

You're a high maintenance girlfriend
You're a high maintenance girlfriend
You're a high maintenance
A high maintenance
A high maintenance girlfriend

From the next moment that we met
I knew trouble would unfold
You made sure your version of real events
Were the only ones told

I've met some amphibious creatures
But never one so cold
Your man may have no cajones
You have got no soul
If truth need to be told
If life is just there is no doubt
You'd be lonely and old

Just because you're loudest to shout
Doesn't mean you are bold
You are not the cheapest tout
You are both bought and sold

Coz you're a
You're a high maintenance girlfriend
You're a high maintenance girlfriend
You're a high maintenance
A high maintenance
A high maintenance girlfriend
Track Name: Quagmire
Flirting to the left
Flirting to the right
You lay it bare for all to see


Juxtaposing love
Against impending fights and
Vanquishing the misery

And I would state you weren't the first one
To have crossed that thin blue line
To mix occasion with vivation
Where egos rub shoulders with pride

Q-U-A-G-M-I-R-E
It's a murky world
Q-U-A-G-M-I-R-E
Full of boys and girls
Q-U-A-G-M-I-R-E
It's a dirty world
Q-U-A-G-M-I-R-E

Leave this crummy joint
And drive into the night
My head seems to be calling me

Thirsty for some love, and
Sickened at the sight
Of these four walls that I still see

And I can state you weren't the first one
To have crossed that thin blue line
To mix occasion with vivation
Where egos rub shoulders with pride.
Track Name: Seating Plan III
I've had as much as I can take for one evening
So on that note I'll prepare myself for leaving
A tempting text, fresh in from my biggest fan
Reveals an imminent gap in your seating plan.
Track Name: Reverse The Charges
If I said I loved you madly
Would you think of me so badly?
And if I said I loved you so sweetly

Would you reverse the charges
and let me get sleazy?

Reverse the charges
I want to get sleazy
Reverse the charges

Reverse the charges
It's free and easy
Reverse the charges
'til I'm spent

If I said I loved you dearly
Would you think of me more clearly
And if I said my love was easy
Would you reverse the charges and let me get sleazy?

Reverse the charges
I want to get sleazy
Reverse the charges

Reverse the charges
It's free and easy
Reverse the charges
'til I'm spent

Reverse the charges
Reverse the charges

Reverse the charges
I want to get sleazy
Reverse the charges

Reverse the charges
It's free and easy
Reverse the charges
'til I'm spent
Track Name: This Is Now An Exit
You caused me misery
if inadvertently
Ignorance is no excuse

Your actions out do words
Don't think they went unheard
I tuned in for over 20 years

And now the tensions mounting
And now the tensions mounting
I feel the dam about to burts

And now the tensiosn mounting
Don't watch me while I'm counting
I feel the dam about to burst

As I do a reci (I think that)
This is now an exit (An exit)
Situation circumspect (I think that)
This is now an exit
For this to be catharic requires, a willing partner
You've never been one much before
I sit with no solution

Gone mad, no resolution, feel all my options drying out

And now my temper's rising
And now my temper's rising
I feel the dam about to burst
And now the tensions mounting
And now the tensions mounting
I feel the dam about to burst
