"Criminal Past" as written by Damian Birchall B Costin, Matt Charles Balfe, David Ghim Cheng Ong and Patrick Thomas Robertson....
So what exactly are you saying
You'd like to live your life between the sheets?
No destination
The hour's getting way past getting late.
To find the public opinion
You're talking big it comes to easily
I'm not prepared to entertain
You salivate when someone tells it straight.

You're young enough to always push your luck.
I keep my fingers crossed you keep em up.

Got a reason to get up this morning
Got inspired by the fear of being last
Don't deny your criminal past
Got a reason to get up this morning
Got inspired by the fear of being last
Don't deny your criminal past
Deny your criminal past.

So what exactly are ya,
So what exactly are ya saying
You'd like to live, your life
Talking cheap its no consolation
The hours getting way past getting late
And now its time to for-forget,
All the people there's too much to regret.
But now its carved in stone,
Just hang up the phone forever.
You've been arrested and you've
Been inspected but you

You're young enough to always push your luck
I keep my fingers crossed you keep em up

Got a reason to get up this morning
Got inspired by the fear of being last
Don't deny your criminal past
Got a reason to get up this morning
Got inspired by the fear of being last
Don't deny your criminal past
Deny your criminal, past.

Got a reason to get up this morning
Got inspired by the fear of being last
Don't deny your criminal past
A reason to get up this morning
Got inspired by the fear of being last
Don't deny your criminal past
Deny your criminal past
Yeah your criminal past
Yeah your criminal past
Yeah your criminal past.

    General Commentmotor ace kick arse, but the thing I don't understand is why there havn't been more people who have visited this site becasue they are the coolest band out. Their not one hit wonders with only a couple of good songs under there belt, there extremly good artists with a very well known CD and the real motor ace fans will know this as their whole CD is awesome.

    General CommentI agree. I just got their latest album, it's excellent. Definitely better stuff to come though, once they get settled. Much like Grinspoon I'm guessing... they seem to be getting better and better.
