Track Name: Human Interference
Human Interference
Eventual disappearance
From this Earth
Oh man it's gonna hurt.

There's plastic everywhere,
Pollution in the air.
How will be survive the flood,
with toxins in our blood.

Our world is fucked up (fucked up)
It's too late to turn back (turn back)
human interference has gone too far.

Look at all this shit dying.
We're lying to ourselves.
Making it better in my head,
cos there's nothin' i can do by myself (aah not really)

But people profit over our demise.
Stripping nature for a price.
Hollow wealth over health,
when's it gonna collapse?

Our world is fucked up (fucked up)
It's too late to turn back (turn back)
human interference has gone too far.

Oh I wanna hang out,
I really need to chill out,
But I'm way too worked up about
How we're gonna survive,
Apocalypse in our lives,
Can I please have a puff on that?
Track Name: Day Job
The weekend is over.
Its Tuesday
I feel like
there isn't
anything
that's giving
me purpose.

Something's happened in terms of my mood
and I dunno what it is.
I've just been feeling defeated
after all this work

I haven't left these walls all day.
Watching windows,
Sitting still, staying silent,
Cos my bills keep me tied down.

The weekend is over.
Its Tuesday
I feel like
there isn't
anything
that's giving
me purpose.

Doesn't feel like my life is going anywhere.
Waiting for my old age,
Prepping for my holiday.

My brain is slowly wasting away!
This monotony can't be good.
How do people tolerate this fuckin bullshit.

The weekend is over.
Its Tuesday
I feel like
there isn't
anything
that's giving
me purpose.

FUCK MY JOB
FUCK MY JOB

FUCK MY JOB
FUCK MY JOB

It's not healthy to be inside all the time.
Get some variation in your life.
It's not healthy to be inside all the time.
Fuck the man.
Change the system.

The weekend is over.
Its Tuesday
I feel like
there isn't
anything
that's giving
me purpose.
Track Name: Complicit
I don't want to police you,
tell you what you've gotta do.
I don't need to baby you,
Ignorant fuck!

I can't seem to do it sometimes,
Too scared to
Speak my mind

Why can't I?
Why can't I?
Why can't I?
Why can't I?
Why can't I?

So much easier said
Than done.
Like to think I'm better
Than some,
Guys who keep it quiet,
Like me.
Hanging on to patriarchy.

Complicit!
Complicit!
Complicit!
Complicit!
Complicity!
Track Name: Cabbage
Oooh, don't want you to stay.
Oooh, can't we part ways?

Oooh, but it feels so shit
Without you.
There must be a different way.

GET ON OUT!
IT MIGHT AS WELL BE
CABBAGE!

Money
You've really got me stuck.
You're mean,
To broke ones like us.
Revolution's on the cusp.

GET ON OUT!
IT MIGHT AS WELL BE
CABBAGE!
Track Name: Avoca-Don't
Avocadooo
I love youuu
Your soft green flesh makes my mouth wet

I can't afford you
But I adore you
Four bucks is too high a price
Oh, it can't be right!

One day I'll plant a tree
So that you can be free
And then we'll be together
Inside my bellyyy

Avocadooo
I love youuu
Your soft green flesh makes my mouth wet

Da da daaa
Da da daaa
Da da daaa
Da da etc

Why are our problems blamed
On a bumpy fruit?
Not on my loan or mouldy room?
It's a slap in the face
Hearing rich guys bitch
When I don't have enough to live.

But avocadooo
I still love you
Even if you're out of my reach
Track Name: 100% Pure
So much filth in the water
All these farms smell like shit
So many ignoring her.
It’s no wonder our rivers are toxic.

There’s sadness in the fields
Our forests diseased or gone.
Invaded by pines
They’ve gone and killed the songs

Oooh Papatunuku
Ooooh what have we done to you.

Sleeping with the concrete
Disconnected from our reality
Our land is unhealthy
We aren’t so clean and green

Our hills are half shaved
Swamps cleared for rugby
Now ruminants roam the land
That people died for

Oooh Papatuanuku
Oooh what have we done to you

One hundred percent pure is bullshit!
One hundred percent pure is BULLSHIT!
Track Name: Tui
In the clearing,
You're reappearing
Dancing overhead
Effortlessly

All the sounds
That you center me around.
Keeping me grounded,
From up high.

Sing to us
From the trees
You keep me
Company

How the fuck can you fly like that
A fighter jet in the canopy
Defying gravity
With style.

Boisterous little thing
You're going and chasing the
Other birds who don't sing
All year round.

Sing to us
From the trees
You keep me
Company

Tui
