Track Name: Waltz Disney
Soon is the winter of our discontent
It follows the autumn we can't pay the rent
You think we'd know better by now

Since all of the gold has been spent
Mine is a love that you long to repent
I can see that it's bringing you down

Now we waltz Disney
You, me and Mickey
Forget all the sorrows that I carry with me

I'll play the hero
Wake up and kiss me
We'll dance 'til forever
So far now from happier days

Yes I believe there's a heaven above
But how can it possibly do any good
In a universe falling apart at the seams

Who cut the strings that were holding us up?
Who stole the crown from the Goddess of Love?
I walked with her once upon a dream

Now we waltz Disney
You, me and Mickey
Forget all the sorrows that I carry with me

I'll play the hero
Wake up and kiss me
We'll dance 'til forever
So far now from happier days

Now that the devil is hot at our heel
We are the crooked spoke of a wheel
Stole from a bicycle made for two

And while I'm sure there are things we should feel
Wishing on stars never made this love real
Still, I guess it beats waiting on you

Now we waltz Disney
You, me and Mickey
Forget all the sorrows that I carry with me

I'll play the hero
Wake up and kiss me
We'll dance 'til forever
So far now from happier days

And those evil, idle pleasure of this life
Are wasted on the likes of you and I
Track Name: A Little History
And did those feet in ancient times
Wear steel-cap boots?
Or did they trample down the northern towns
Where the flowers of sin take root?

I'm happy to consider change
If it be your will
But the blood that ran through my father's veins
Runs in me still

I was born with a shovel in my hand
To dig my legacy in the contours of this land

But it's all concrete round here
Those places I hold dear
What more can we do
But dye their white collars blue
And hold out for a miracle

To all those souls lost out at sea
Tear the standard from the mast
From Orgreave south to Agincourt
Mark the follies of our past

I understand that I must take up arms
When I'm shipped out to the war
All I ask for in return
Is a home worth fighting for

I was born with a shovel in my hand
To dig my legacy in the contours of this land

But it's all concrete round here
Those places I hold dear
What more can we do
But dye their white collars blue
And hold out for a miracle

I've been set up for a fall
As I donkey-stone the steps of St Paul's
Turns out that there's no heaven after all
Just somewhere else but here

It's all concrete round here
Those places I hold dear
What more can we do
But dye their white collars blue
And hold out for a miracle
Track Name: Peachy Keen
I've been feeling homesick
Grown weary of the road
We grew up believing
We were born to be alone

Something must have changed you
A little birdy told me you weren't well
And something kind of changed me
When I discovered life without you is hell

We'll put the gold
Back in your soul
I'm coming home
Hang in Honeypie

All those big decisions
Were you moving out far across the sea
Give weight to endless questions
Are holding out for a better man than me?

Often I look skyward
At times the stars spell out your name
This universe surrounds us
Are you looking up the same?

Something went and changed you
And I guess we'll never know what might have been
But don't you worry sweetheart
Someday everything will work out peachy keen

We'll put the gold
Back in your soul
I'm coming home
Hang in Honeypie
