Track Name: Ghosthunting With The Happy Mondays
These days
Everything's so blasé
As you sip upon your latte and make cynical quips
These days
Everything's so bloodless
Won't satiate the bloodlust of millennial kids
But I'll work with you, just tell me what you're after, I'll design it to spec, agree the scripting and the test plans
But then like amateurs
You change the parameters
Oh, 21st century, you don't know what you wanted at all

I've lost faith in all of my decisions
Can I make things with precision?
Are they cool or interesting?
I'm like 'Ghosthunting with the Happy Mondays'
I shouldn't have been made
I shouldn't have passed the beta testing

These days
I second-guess my heroes
Like Dante or Shakespeare knows the problems I face
These days
I try to be righteous
Try to add some lightness, not to fall on my face
But I don't salivate
Trying to navigate the myriad complexities of this stupid century
If I made a creature
Then for some flaw or feature
It would get torn to pieces, no-one would know what it meant to me

I've lost faith in all of my decisions
Can I make things with precision?
Are they cool or interesting?
I'm like 'Ghosthunting with the Happy Mondays'
I shouldn't have been made
I shouldn't have passed the beta testing
I shouldn't have passed the beta testing

What if I made the wrong choice and I'm stuck?
What if I don't have any talent or luck?
What if I think something is good and it sucks?
What if my colleagues are all absolute schmucks?

I've lost faith in all of my decisions
Can I make things with precision?
Are they cool or interesting?
I'm like 'Ghosthunting with the Happy Mondays'
I shouldn't have been made
I shouldn't have passed the beta testing

Why should I bring anything to life
When I shouldn't be alive
should be arrested not arresting?
I'm like 'Ghosthunting with the Happy Mondays'
I shouldn't have been made
I shouldn't have passed the beta testing
I shouldn't have passed the beta testing
I shouldn't have passed the beta testing
Track Name: Year Without A Summer
I missed summer coz I spent it at work
Well it's the only thing in my life that works
I missed the last one
I'll miss another
This is the year without a summer

I spent the autumn and the winter too
Thinking of things to do in summer with you
But you're not my lover, I am not your lover
This is the year without a summer

I spent the spring thinking of how
We could be better friends to one another
But now we're not spending any time with each other
This is the year without a summer

I realised how you'd get to 75
And then die and no-one realised you were even alive
And as they put you in the ground they'd be like "isn't that a bummer?"
This is the year without a summer

I spent all August wondering why
All of my friendships have passed me by
I guess they're happier if we're not with each other
This is the year without a summer
