"Dinosaur" as written by and Michael Tomlinson....
Oh, ejected from the venue at a quarter to 4
Lord I swear this time next year it's gonna be 1984
Yes and I've been very busy getting drunk with my friends
All hung up by my purse strings, hung my head in the sand
Yeah, you can imagine my surprise

Everybody's very concerned about the weather
The front page is found on the back of the paper
And though it seems ridiculous, I just don't think risking it would be very clever

God only knows if that's all true
But you better choose the right thing to do
Just being young don't make it cool
Just playing dumb won't get us through

Ah yeah, flicked the switch to dial in a quarter to 6
And it didn't tell me lies, in fact it didn't tell me shit
Woah, the upwardly mobile in a state of confusion
Oh it seems the more they provide the more bleak the future
Oh well

Well God, everybody's very concerned about the weather
We all prepare to hibernate down at the burger joint
And though it seems ridiculous, I just don't think risking it would be very clever

God only knows if that's all true
But you better choose the right thing to do
Just being young don't make it cool
Just playing dumb won't get us through

The higher the tide, the higher the stakes
The higher the price, the more time we waste
Just remember that smirk on your own face
Saying none of the dinosaurs remain

Oh Nostradamus and Noam Chomsky got together
But none of their predictions have come true, huh?
Well they say it's fine but there's no oil in the well
And that's a sign that if they're lying, we've only fucked ourselves

Oh, what's the point of trying to make it better
When there's no proof anything will improve?
We can't afford it, you're right, but what'd you want to go on for?
We can't afford the gas in our cars

Well God only knows if that's all true
But you better choose the right thing to do
Just being young don't make it cool
Just playing dumb won't get us through

The higher the tide, the higher the stakes
The higher the price, the more time we waste
Just remember that smirk on your own face
Or we'll be the dinosaurs someday

All right
