"Duckpond" as written by and Sarsevic M. Farm....
Everybody is leaving from this town and from me.
They've got the burning flame, they sure achieve their aim.
You know that's tough for me to see.
Oh, how I wish that I could do the same as them and go.
Just pack my bags and good-bye, get out fast or fade away real slow.

What you see is what you get right here, where a change is nowhere near.
What you see is what you get from me. In this duckpond, leave me be.

I pretend my life is perfect like the faces on TV.
Yeah, that's the only way to face another day, try to deny the misery.
But those are the ways of looney's and like a clown, yeah, I do act
No matter where I could be or would like to go, I'm stuck here. That's a fact.

I'm too weak I'm down on my knees. Too feeble for something new.
Feels like there's nothing I can do.
Keep on laughing 'bout me, keep on doing your own,
But someday I will be that one. Be that one,
yeah, someday I will be that one...

    General Commenti agree its a good song. and one of the best on Pennybridge, but.... pennybridge is apretty ab dalbum, its still good, but compared to millencolins standards it lacks, i hate to bag the boys out, but all the other MC alkbums were so much better, liek for minkeys and life on a plate, i hated how everyone jumped on the millencolin band wagon when pennybridge was released, all their other stuff is better, their new album home form home is awesome. it beats the he;ll outta pennybridge.

    General CommentYeah...no denying that Millencolin's "Monky..." was better, but not every band can make their next album always match the previous ones. None the less Millencolin is still awesome.

    General CommentLife on a plate i think was their best album...I still really liked this one. For monkeys was intriguing. I don't really like home from home though, maybe it just needs to grow on me but I don't think its nearly as good as their past stuff.
