about

Podracer Dundalk, Ireland

Alan Anderson - Vocals/Guitar
Damien Carroll - Bass/Vocals
Colin Berrill - Drums

Angry, noisy & irreverent as possible, Irish three-piece Podracer take post-punk sounds of the 80's, subpop sounds of the 90's & different elements of rock, punk & metal to create short, sharp shocks to the system, cutting out the ego-enhancing mtv-friendliness that contemporary "rock" bands are weighed down with.

HEY DOCTOR, TAKE A PICTURE OR TWO
TAKE A DOZEN FOR ALL THE GOOD IT WILL DO
RED-HANDED, I THINK IS THE PHRASE
OPEN THE FLOODGATES, LOCK & LOAD HERE COMES THE RAGE

XANEX IN THE MORNING AND LAST THING EVERY NIGHT
XANEX EVERY FUCKING DAY MAKES EVERYTHING ALRIGHT
AND EVERY NIGHT I DREAM IN RED, COTTON WOOL INSIDE MY HEAD
AND LEATHER STRAPS ACROSS MY BED, IF I'M SO CURED, WHY DO I FEEL SO

DEAD?

THEY SAY IT'S ALL IN MY HEAD
“PSYCHOSOMATIC”
HOW COME THERE'S BLOOD ALL OVER MY BED?
TAKE MY PASSION AWAY 'CAUSE I DON'T WANT IT NO MORE
BUT I WON'T BE IGNORED
HIGH CALIBRE WEAPON ON THE DANCEFLOOR

XANEX IN THE MORNING AND LAST THING EVERY NIGHT
XANEX EVERY FUCKING DAY MAKES EVERYTHING ALRIGHT
AND EVERY NIGHT I DREAM IN RED, COTTON WOOL INSIDE MY HEAD
AND LEATHER STRAPS ACROSS MY BED, IF I'M SO CURED, WHY DO I FEEL SO DEAD?

YEAH I TOLD YOU SO
EVERYBODY TOLD YOU SO
I FUCKING TOLD YOU SO

XANEX IN THE MORNING AND LAST THING EVERY NIGHT
XANEX EVERY FUCKING DAY MAKES EVERYTHING ALRIGHT
AND EVERY NIGHT I DREAM IN RED, COTTON WOOL INSIDE MY HEAD
AND LEATHER STRAPS ACROSS MY BED, IF I'M SO CURED, WHY DO I FEEL SO
DEAD?

YEAH I TOLD YOU SO
EVERYBODY TOLD YOU SO
I FUCKING TOLD YOU SO

TOLD YOU SO
Track Name: Vulpes
"Vulpes"

Global dimming, the ozone thinning,
The war on drugs but the dealer's winning,
A fourteen year old with a gun in his hand,
It's right here. it's right now but I don't understand
why headline news in America
Means the same headline news everywhere.
Selling everyone their American dream,
Well we all saw corpses float in New Orleans

Boom!

Tick tick tick tick tick tick BOOM
Click click click click click click BANG

Now stop me if I'm wrong but it seems kinda funny,
We're acting more stupid as we make more money.
The oceans rise, another African dies.
"Top story - Al Qaeda" What a surprise!

Boom!

Tick tick tick tick tick tick BOOM
Click click click click click click BANG

WITH INK AND HATE WE ILLUSTRATE

WE FOUGHT THE LAW WITH TOOTH AND CLAW
MAKE THEIR RETREATS, WE OWN THE STREETS

IT'S TIME TO HAVE ME SOME FUN
'CAUSE WE'RE ARMED WITH HAMMERS & A HANDGUN

STEP ASIDE
'CAUSE WE WON'T TAKE IT ANY LONGER
WHAT DOESN'T KILL US

YEAH, HAMMERS & A HANDGUN
YEAH, HAMMERS & A HANDGUN

ARMED WITH HAMMERS & A HANDGUN
Track Name: Cabin
"Cabin"

Grab myself by the scruff of the neck,
To face another photocopy day,
Wipe the fake from my face and start my day,
Everyday, the exact same way.
Try damn hard to hide my age,
Though my heart feels so very old,
Apply a smile, live in denial,
And I'm ready to go!

You say it's tough at the top,
Well try it on the bottom son,
'Cause down here it ain't no fun.
We are the lowest of the low
And we got nowhere to go,
Got nowhere to go..... except down

And when they ask us who we are
And we say "Fine",
I want you all to know that we are lying.
Six hundred thousand hours, that's all we've got
To make our mark from birth,
But according to you
And all you say and do'
A signature is all we're worth.

You say it's tough at the top,
Well try it on the bottom son,
'Cause down here it ain't no fun.
We are the lowest of the low
And we got nowhere to go,
Got nowhere to go..... except down

Down, down, down.....

We're going down....

You say it's tough at the top,
Well try it on the bottom son,
'Cause down here it ain't no fun.
We are the lowest of the low
And we got nowhere to go,
Got nowhere to go..... except down

"POCKET MONSTER"

BEEN HIDING IN THE SHADOWS WAY TOO LONG
GUILT TRIPPING, GUILT TRIPPING LIKE YOU'RE THE ONE IN THE WRONG
LOCKED AWAY LIKE YOU'RE DOING TIME
YOU STAND ACCUSED BUT WITHOUT PROOF WHERE'S THE CRIME?
IT'S A SAFE BET, DRIPPING WITH SWEAT
GET YOU SOAKING WET, I HAVEN'T EVEN STARTED YET

I PUT YOU IN MY POCKET
AND TAKE YOU FAR AWAY
I PUT YOU IN MY POCKET
AND WHEN WE'RE ALONE I TAKE YOU AND PLAY
I PUT YOU IN MY POCKET
EVEN THOUGH IT'S WRONG
I PUT YOU IN MY POCKET
WHERE YOU BELONG

EVERYONE TELLING ME SHE'S BAD NEWS
AND NO MATTER HOW GOOD YOUR HAND IS, YOU'RE STILL GOING TO LOSE
BUT SOMETIMES IT AIN'T ABOUT WHO LOSES OR WINS
SISTER IT'S TIME TO TO CONFESS YOUR SINS
IT'S A SAFE BET, DRIPPING WITH SWEAT
GET YOU SOAKING WET, I HAVEN'T EVEN STARTED YET

I PUT YOU IN MY POCKET
AND TAKE YOU FAR AWAY
I PUT YOU IN MY POCKET
AND WHEN WE'RE ALONE I TAKE YOU AND PLAY
I PUT YOU IN MY POCKET
EVEN THOUGH IT'S WRONG
'CAUSE THAT'S WHERE YOU BELONG

WHERE ARE YOU RIGHT NOW? WHAT EXACTLY ARE YOU DOING?
WHILE YOUR ACTOR TAKES HIS CURTAIN CALL, MY AUDIENCE IS BOOING
SUCH A DISMAL PERFORMANCE, HOW QUICKLY THEY FORGET
BUT IF YOU TURN AROUND YOU'LL SEE I HAVEN'T DIED QUITE YET
I'M STILL RIGHT HERE, I'M STILL EXACTLY THE SAME
JUST LET YOUR GUARD DOWN, MAYBE FORGET THE PAST, FUCK THE BLAME
I PUT YOU IN MY POCKET EVEN THOUGH IT'S WRONG
I PUT YOU IN MY POCKET 'CAUSE THAT'S WHERE YOU BELONG

THIS IS WHERE YOU BELONG
Track Name: X-Ray
"X-RAY"

IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT, WITH A GUN TO YOUR HEAD,
WAKE YOU UP AND DRAG YOU OUT OF YOUR BEAD
NO RIGHTS, NO CALLS, A MANDATORY HOLIDAY BY THE BAY
NO GOODBYE TO YOUR FAMILY & FRIENDS
ENJOY YOUR STAY, 'CAUSE IT'S ONE WAY

I'LL TAKE MY TIME WITH YOU

WHAT YOU CALL INTERNMENT, I CALL DEMOCRACY
YOU'RE AFRAID OF FREEDOM, NOW BE AFRAID OF ME
NO SLEEP, NO FOOD, NO PRAYER, WIRED UP HOT, BLINDFOLD COLD
YOU'LL CONFESS TO WHATEVER I WANT
WITH A WET RAG STUFFED DOWN YOUR THROAT

I'LL TAKE MY TIME WITH YOU

THE HOME OF THE BRAVE
THE LAND OF THE FREE
FOR KING AND COUNTRY
IT'S JUST YOU & ME

'CAUSE THIS IS MY RIFLE
THIS IS MY GUN

THIS IS FOR FIGHTING, THIS IS FOR FUN

"NOTHING TO LOSE"

I DON'T WANT TO GO,
BUT I GUESS IT'S TIME TO LEAVE
KIND OF FIGURED IT OUT
WHEN YOU THREW MY SUITCASE AT ME

AND IT'S BEYOND REASON
BUT I WON'T PLEAD MY CASE
'CAUSE EVERYTHING I'VE SAID OR DONE
IS THROWN BACK IN MY FACE

AND I'M GOING TO FEEL IT TOMORROW
EVERY CUT AND BRUISE
I'M GOING TO WAKE UP TOMORROW
WITH NOTHING TO LOSE
I HOPE I WAKE UP TOMORROW

I DON'T WANT TO GO,
BUT THERE'S NO WAY I'M STAYING
'CAUSE IT'S BEYOND REASON, LOVE OR HATE,
PLEASURE OR PAIN
AND I'M GOING TO FEEL IT TOMORROW,
EVERY CUT AND BRUISE
I'M GOING TO WAKE UP TOMORROW
WITH NOTHING TO LOSE

I GOT NOTHING TO LOSE
Track Name: Californian Boys
"Californian Boys"

Force-feed you retro,
The future's in the past,
A photocopy of a photocopy,
Quick fix, not meant to last.
Pack my bags and head for the sun,
Got my daddy's records under my arm.

California - lift me high
California - telling all the kids what they're supposed to buy.

Why?

Follow my head 'cause my heart's cold,
If you want to play the game,
And if we shift enough units,
Get our thirty-eight minutes of fame.
The more that we make, the more that we lose,
Do you know the way to Santa Cruz?

California - suck me dry
California - swallow what I've got, look me straight in the eye
And we want to be the brightest stars in the sky
California - telling all the kids what they're supposed to buy

Don't want to fool some of the people all of the time.
Don't want to fool all of the people some of the time
We want to fool all of the people all of the time....

California - wave bye bye
California - turn your backs, leave us high and dry
And we want to be the brightest stars in the sky
California - telling all the kids what they're supposed to buy

It's all lies, open your eyes....
Track Name: Easy Singles
"Easy Singles"

Dress to impress but we don't care
That you spent last week's wages
On straightening your hair
And you spent this week's wages
On your perfect clothes
Next week's wages
Right up your nose
All picture and no sound
Motherfucker got it going down
Motherfucker looks like a clown

We do what we do, backs against the wall
We may look like shit but we feel ten foot tall
Acting on instinct, just do what we do
We may not be perfect but we're better than you

Better than you...

You strike a pose but there's nothing to it
Like the emperor's new clothes
We saw right through it
And how can something so beautiful fail
How can something so contemporary be so stale
Well I got a message for you
Why quote a novel when two words'll do
Shakespeare said it best when he said
FUCK YOU

We do what we do, backs against the wall
We may look like shit but we feel ten foot tall
Acting on instinct, just do what we do
We may not be perfect but we're better than you

Better than you...

We do what we do
Our backs against the wall
Yeah I know we may look like shit but we feel ten foot tall
So don't ask questions
'Cause we just do what we do
And we don't need to be perfect
Just as long as we're better than you

Yeah, we're better than you... always

We do what we do, backs against the wall
We may look like shit but we feel ten foot tall
Acting on instinct, just do what we do
We may not be perfect but we're better than you

GIVEN THE CHOICE IT'S NOT THE LIFE YOU'D PICK
DAYTONA STREET TRASH WITH THUMB OUT FOR TRICKS
NOVEMBER THIRTIETH WENT WRONG FROM THE START
PUT A HOLE RIGHT THROUGH POOR RICHARD'S HEART
TOOK HIS LIFE, HIS CASH AND HIS CAR
PEDAL TO THE METAL DRIVE FAR, FAR, FAR AWAY
SEIZE THE DAY

WHITE TRASH - BEATEN DOWN FOR SO LONG
FIGHT BACK - TIME TO RIGHT ALL THE WRONGS

LOVE FEEDS THE ANGER, THE PAIN AND THE FEAR
FOR LOVE SEVEN LIVES IN JUST ONE YEAR
LOVE BLURS THE LINE BETWEEN RIGHT AND WRONG
BUT THE ARM OF THE LAW IS SO VERY STRONG
BACKSTABBER! TOOK THE BULLET FOR YOU
DEATHROW MONEY MAKER, TEN YEARS WAITING TO DIE
WHY TY, WHY?

WHITE TRASH - BEATEN DOWN FOR SO LONG
FIGHT BACK - TIME TO RIGHT ALL THE WRONGS
WHITE TRASH - ONE HAND WASHES THE OTHER
FIGHT BACK

BUT I'M NEVER ALONE
YOU ABSOLVE ME OF SIN
AND YOU'RE HOLDING MY HAND
AS THE NEEDLE GOES IN

“AND I'D JUST LIKE TO SAY I'M SAILING WITH THE ROCK AND I'LL BE BACK LIKE INDEPENDENCE DAY WITH JESUS JUNE SIXTH, LIKE THE MOVIE, BIG MOTHERSHIP AND ALL. I'LL BE BACK, I'LL BE BACK, I'LL BE BACK”

WHITE TRASH - BEATEN DOWN FOR SO LONG
FIGHT BACK - TIME TO RIGHT ALL THE WRONGS
WHITE TRASH – I'M NOT A MONSTER, I'M A HUMAN BEING
FIGHT BACK – ONE HAND WASHES THE OTHER CLEAN
