lyrics

STEP ONE
STEP BACK FROM YOUR DAY TO DAY ROUTEEN
'CAUSE YOU ARE JUST ONE OF SEVEN BILLION HUMAN BEINGS
STEP TWO
THIS IS NO REHERSAL, THIS IS NO GAME
YOU CONTROL WHO YOU ARE SO YOU ARE TO BLAME
STEP THREE
ACCEPT THAT GOD JUST DOESN'T CARE
OR MAYBE HE'S NOT LISTENING. PERHAPS HE'S JUST NOT THERE
STEP FOUR
FORGET WHO YOU ARE, RELINQUISH CONTROL
IT'S TIME TO DANCE WITH THE DEVIL, TIME TO SELL YOUR SOUL

STEP FIVE
LSD, PCP, MDMA
BLUR YOUR PERCEPTION 'TIL YOUR DOUBTS FADE AWAY
STEP SIX
SWEET ALCOHOL AS MUCH A BLESSING AS A CURSE
NOTHING LIKE A DOWNER TO MAKE YOU FEEL WORSE
STEP SEVEN
CATCH THE EYE OF THAT CERTAIN GIRL OR GUY
ANOTHER HOLLOW, DRUNKEN MONEY SHOT,
YOU ASK YOURSELF "WHY?"
STEP EIGHT
LOOK IN THE MIRROR 'CAUSE IT'S ALL GONE WRONG
YOUR FAKE TAN HAS FADED AND YOUR FAIR-WEATHER FRIENDS ARE GONE

THIS IS MY TWELVE STEP PROGRAM FOR SUCCESS
AND IT WILL BLOW YOU AWAY

WHICH LEADS US NICELY ONTO

STEP NINE
STOP! THIS IS THE POINT OF NO RETURN
LIKE THE PHOENIX FROM THE FIRE, WATCH THE OLD YOU BURN
STEP TEN
ALL THE REGRETS, THEY MEAN NOTHING ANYMORE
BE THE SHEPHERD, NOT THE SHEEP,
BE THE PIMP, NOT THE WHORE
STEP ELEVEN
OPEN YOUR MIND AND YOU WILL ACHIEVE ANYTHING
SO JUST GET ON WITH IT AND STOP YOUR CONSTANT WHINGING
STEP TWELVE
OR YOU CAN CHOOSE TO IGNORE ALL I'VE SAID
BITE DOWN ON THE MUZZLE AND PAINT THE WALL RED

THIS IS MY TWELVE STEP PROGRAM FOR SUCCESS
AND IT WILL BLOW YOU AWAY

Podracer Dundalk, Ireland

Alan Anderson - Vocals/Guitar
Damien Carroll - Bass/Vocals
Keith MulHolland - 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.
