Thanks to everyone for getting so involved with this, but thanks especially to:

Declan Legge for putting up with us and making us sound rad (sorry for breaking your banjo string).
The Parents, for hauling us up and down the country for gigs and practices. (especially Dee, for all the dancing and food)
Ciara, for the fabulous artwork.
The dedicated fans who've been to too many shows (looking at you Carter, Joanna, and Sarah).
And last but not least, the parents of Matthew Dickson, for birthing an inspiration.

Track Name: Doge (Give me the D)
Oh, mama, you won't believe what your son has done.
He's found himself a woman, doesn't take it up the...
Oh, father, you won't believe what your son has said.
He's found himself a woman, and now he takes her off to bed.

Every girl I ever had,
turned out to be a man.
Woke up the next day,
she wouldn't go away.
Went down to A&E,
to see if it's infected me.

I'm too doge to die.
So very wow.

Hey, fella.
Look into your soul and see,
all these broken ornaments,
who they're telling you to be.

Hey, dingus.
Can you stop denying it.
Stop wasting time with your bull...
Live a life you won't regret.

Every girl I ever had,
turned out to be a man.
Woke up the next day,
she wouldn't go away.
Went down to A&E,
to see if it's infected me.

I'm too doge to die.
So very wow.

Just because I watch Magic Mike on repeat,
doesn't mean that I feel my arms going weak.
So I sit on my couch and watch every day.
Like I do when I'm home watching re-runs of Hairspray.

Just because I don't think that I need to believe
the facts that surround the birds and the bees.
So may I adopt - a viewpoint, at that -
or we'll go against it with political crap.
Track Name: PCD
I've been wondering for quite a while.
When you'd come back to me.
We'd come to see you all over again.
Relive the awesome memories.

I've had the sickness for quite some time,
and you're my only vaccine.
Please come to see me all over again:
Relieve my case of PCD.


Tell me, why can't I go back to that night?

I'm sorry it's over.
You said all good things must end.
We are free - it's the best way to be.
You can't take that away from me.

Track Name: Phantom of the Restaurant
The truth's always right - I don't like my life.
I don't know where to go, please help me to get home.
Left alone outside, I'm socially deprived
I don't know where to go, please help me to get home.

Eoin's my key 'cause he helped me to be me.
Mistakes that I made are still haunting my days.

It's nice to see the world go by,
but I'd rather be a part of it.
Leave this place on a high,
but I'm going down bit by bit.

To hell with all this,
Nothing but some nonsense.
Try hard you'll never win, even if you think you will.
Acting like you're old, fills the brain with a massive hole.
Try hard you'll never win, even if you think you will.

Do give your best because you will always succeed.
What bullcrap is that 'cause I'm still here forgot!

It's nice to see the world go by,
but I'd rather be a part of it.
Leave this place on a high,
but I'm going down bit by bit.

The music keeps fading, I don't care at all.
This power, this passion is me on the dance floor.
Overshot by some crazy guy,
They call Eugene, don't ask me cause I don't know why.
I don't know, hell I've had enough, had enough of this show.
I don't know, hell I've had enough, had enough of this show.

2:00am, I don't care, I will be me.
And I'm touched by some guy that they call NeeNee
And I'm underage, underthought, under my skin
And my Amy keeps teasing me, why do I listen?
I don't know, hell I've had enough, had enough of this show. I don't know, hell I've had enough, had enough of this show.

Earhofe do I and my Joe will know this
And these tears that I cry are for my happiness.
Hawkin' around, yeah, 'Triona knows that.
And now Eoin has lost my bowler hat.

Ooh-ay-oh
Oh-ay-oh, oh-ay-oh oiofsdjfhoryf
Track Name: The Logic of Matthew Dickson
His name is Matthew Dickson, he's got a passion for games,
And he gets ticked off when we forget the characters' names.
On his CV all we can see
Is a kill/death ratio of 2.3
It doesn't matter, cause he's our mate.
Despite the fact we have 0.8.
He can't see further in real life
Than the length of his pocket knife.

This is the logic of Matthew Dickson.
It's all ruckus but it's fun and games.
Life's a joke so let's keep on laughing,
Keep on laughing till the end of our days.

Na na nana na na, nana na na nana na na na.
Na na nana na na, nana na na nana na na na.

Great with the ladies, despite his killing,
In the name of himself and all who are willing.
His life consists of women and war:
A warrior in love who's looking for more.
But he'll never get it because of his desires:
He wants a partner like Dr Myers.
Stupidity flows right through his veins
His logic will live on through all of his days.

This is the logic of Matthew Dickson.
It's all ruckus but it's fun and games.
Life's a joke so let's keep on laughing,
Keep on laughing till the end of our days.

Na na nana na na, nana na na nana na na na.
Na na nana na na, nana na na nana na na na.
Na na nana na na, nana na na nana na na na.
Na na nana na na, nana na na nana na na na.

Blind as a bat that he may be, but that's OK 'cause he's with me. (Na na nana na na, nana na na nana na na na.)
Playtime: 17 days straight – no break from breaching the enemy's gate.(Na na nana na na, nana na na nana na na na.)
Mellon's his hobby, Engard his passion, bearded dwarves inside of his fashion. (Na na nana na na, nana na na nana na na na.)
No social life, just playing games, but that's OK because he's my friend. (Na na nana na na, nana na na nana na na na.)
