Track Name: Save The World
I can feel time just slipping away
Same four walls, day after day
Government worker, Department of Thing
Across the desks, the telephones ring...

Seven days to save the world...

Christie and Meltzer were right what they said
The Floodgates are open so get out of bed
Many are chosen, many are called
To bring the clash between the rulers and ruled

Six days to save the world...

One, two, three four, knock at the door
Five, six, seven, eight, break down the gate
Nine, ten, eleven, twelve, do it yourself
Four, six, eight, ten, do it again

Four days to save the world...

Fire in the sky, slowing of the clock
Get a funny feeling that it's all gonna stop
It's all got surreal, it's the strangest day
Bang on the head and it's all been a dream, eh?

Three days to save the world...

I can see the future and it's coming this way
No more walls day after day
Government worker, Department of Thing
Across the desks, the telephones ring...

One day to save the world...

Track Name: What Did You Do With The Body?
I don’t believe in the story you’re telling
It’s inconsistent, I smell a red herring
It’s all designed to make me loose bearing
Of the facts when it comes to the hearing

What did you do with the body?
How did you cover the scent?
I will trace all your footsteps
So I can pay the rent, pay the rent

Story gets weirder as you go deeper
Someone around is this secret’s keeper
Some say I’m heading for a big sleep, yeah
But I say fine ’cos I don’t fear this reaper

What did you do with the body?
How did you cover the scent?
I will trace all your footsteps
So I can pay the rent, pay the rent

And when we come to the end of the story
Alibi of the girl's proved to be phony
Several got rained on for her love of glory
I am a P.I.* but that’s just my story

'Cos I know what you did with the body
I know how you covered the scent
'Cos I traced all your footsteps
And now I don’t need the rent, it’s heaven sent
