Track Name: Countryside
We're on the road again,
To find out if we're still friends,
Coming around the bend.
We've made amends, before we've even left the den

Countryside, countryside,
Think I'll retire,
To the countryside,
Leave it all behind

We've not been here before,
Learning to fly, though we don't yet know the course,
But shouting makes me hoarse.
Rip up the rule book, we're not even keeping score

Countryside, countryside,
Think i'lll retire,
To the countryside,
Leave it all behind

Ooh oowoohoowoohoo (x4)

We know that life is short,
Too short, too short, to bother holding court,
Nothing left to report,
Pack up your bags Jack, you can be my Dean cohort.

In the countryside, countryside,
Think I'll retire,
To the countryside,
Leave it all behind

Ooh oowoohoowoohoo (x8)
Track Name: Laguna
The state of your union resides in Laguna,
Chocolate volovant? The girl that you want?
Everybody sees it, but she don't believe it,
You're the man of her dreams standing in front of her,
Right in front of me, in front of her, it's absurd.

Are we getting closer or further away?
I can't tell you for sure, my mind changes each day,
I still wanna see you know that much is true,
But you've been taken away, all names have been changed.
Like your address, there's no redress, it's a mess.

State of, state of, state of, state of, stay-stay
State of, state of, state of, state of, stay-stay
Stay, won't you stay.
Track Name: The Search
There's a crisis in the city,
Where everyone knows everyone,
And the girls think they're too pretty,
To be brought out by anyone (X2)

Well let me tell you now,
Why I won't let you down,
As if you do not know....

I've had enough, had enough,
My legs are fucked, my back is fucked,
When you're stuck, in a rut, you rise above,
and search for love.

You search for love (x4)

'Cos everyone has loved someone,
and everyone, is essentially on their own,
But don't give up, don't give up,
You rise above and search for love.

Search for love (x4)
