released 20 April 2011
earthwhales are pretty cool...and they need help too...so I'll be donating part of the profits from this album to the save the whales foundation.
www.savethewhales.org

The lyrics for "Martha Jonesing" and "A Song for Abigail" were written by the lovely Robyn Schneider and you should all go tell her how much you love them (www.youtube.com/robynisrarelyfunny). Alex Carpenter helped me sing "My Reality"...what a stud (www.youtube.com/alexandercarpenter).
That super adorable album art was done by the lovely Morgan Johnson (www.youtube.com/outofmyelement).

Track Name: Hey There Bracewell
Hey there Bracewell, i don’t give a damn
If you’re a machine, but are you a man
Do you think you have what it takes
To help us take a stand
So go on Bracewell and use what the daleks gave you
Those antigravity bubbles i bet they could take our men into space

Hey there Bracewell, prove that you’re human
Remember the post office by the ash trees
And your parents that died of scarlet fever
Because they can’t explode a human being
So go on Bracewell don’t you give into
The thought that you might be any less of a man

Hey there Bracewell, remember dorabella
Who had such a smile and her eyes were so blue
Like the last touch of the sunset at the edge of the world
And i’ll welcome you to the human race
So go on Bracewell find the woman you love so
You can have the life that you have always dreamed of
Track Name: This Is a Song for the Fish
This is a song for the fish
That float through the fog in the sky
But not for the fish that are in fish custard
Or for the gross ones that came from space
Track Name: Victory Should Be Naked
What’s all this about a flying space pig?
Where’s the prime minister this is his gig
He’s disappeared so I guess I’m in charge
but I fart a lot and I’m rather large
I don’t take vinegar on my salad
Excuse me sir but you’re looking pallid
Is it because you have realized
That I am planning your demise

Victory should be naked
Yeah, victory should be naked
There’s nothing I like more
Than casting my human suit to the floor
I have such a beautiful body
I’m one slitheen hottie
So victory should be naked
Oh so very naked


You see that zipper on my forehead
I’ll unzip it and you’ll soon be dead
No one can get in the way
the earth will be our big payday
come on everyone we’ll be sellin cheap
auctioning off this great big dung heap
real estate salesmen except with lasers
without cheesy billboards or red blazers
because

we’ve trapped rose tyler with that doctor who
and harriet jones mp for flidel north too
while sealed off in that room
they can only await their own doom
wait. Stop. Can you hear that sound?
I think a bomb might be coming round
we really should’ve known
that the doctor always pwns
Track Name: Be Extraordinary
You’ve burrowed up from down below me
And you say you want to kill all the apes
I will stop this war from happening
i’m the doctor and i know i have what it takes
I’m the last of my species
And i know how it sits in a heart
So don’t you insult my intelligence
If we’re going to negotiate you’ve got to play your part

The future pivots around you all
So do good for humanity
And for the homoreptilia too
There has to be some common ground
A way for everyone to agree
We all have too much to lose

I will travel down into the centre
Of the earth to try and find the ones we’ve lost
While i’m gone make sure you keep your temper
If you don’t we can’t know what it will cost
Come on and be extraordinary
Be the best that i know you can be
You are decent, brilliant people
Please don’t go disappointing me

What’s this what happened to alaya?
This really isn’t helping our cause
I still think it can all work out
If we all keep calm and briefly pause
You can’t seem to come to an agreement
But now you know how you will prepare
Pass it on as legend or prophecy
This planet is to be shared
Track Name: A Song for Abigail
I was just a little boy in search of my story
Trying to tame the fish in the sky
I missed an adventure, the doctor found one for me
Seeing the stars with you by my side,

An old friend once took a long time
to teach me that life isn’t always fair
So I guess I’m unfairly lucky then
to have found you at all.
We’re halfway out of the darkness
And we’ve never seen the light of day
I want to watch the sun rise over the foggy spire with you.

And you may be frozen
But it’s me who’s grown cold.
I’m starting to remember my life with you in it
Flying through the skies in our shark-driven sleigh
Knowing that happiness was just one Christmas Eve away.

I was the phantom of my Christmas future
When me as a boy saw me as a man
I had been afraid of wasting our last day
But without you I had been wasting away.
Track Name: Martha Jonesing
Matt Smith, I completely adore you
But ‘Come Along Pond’ is no ‘Geronimo’
The Daleks are different and so is the Tardis
Torchwood’s gone, and so is Alonso.

It’s the end of days for Russell T. Davies
There’s a new doctor in town
With a fez and suspenders and a natty bow tie
But no matter how hard I try
I’m Martha Jonesing for David Tenant
And it’s no wonder why.
Yeah, I’m Martha Jonesing for David Tenant
And it’s no wonder why.

Amy Pond, you’re my favorite companion
But with Tennant by your side
You’d adventure through time and space
The Fearsome Doctor and a runaway bride.

Rory Williams, you stole my heart
A Nestene roman with a gun for a hand
The lovestruck boyfriend who waited millennia
A plastic soldier under Amy’s command.
Track Name: The Pandorica Is Opening
All my old enemies, acting as friends
Ten thousand ships in the sky
Working as one while the universe ends
What are you going to try?

Sontarans slitheen, the daleks and the dravin
All that I’ve hated are here to challenge me,
They’ve all heard the warning, the pandorica is opening.
The deadliest weapon, destroyer of reality

It’s time to start a fight
the battle is tonight
No weapons worth a damn
I’m standing in your way
So what do you say,
Think I’ve got the upper hand?

No back up, no plan
But I’m taking a stand
With nothing left to lose.
the Doctor’s in your way
It’s another black day
I wouldn’t want to be in your shoes.

Sontarans slitheen, the daleks and the dravin
All that I’ve hated are here to challenge me,
They’ve all heard the warning, the pandorica is opening.
The deadliest weapon, destroyer of reality
Track Name: The Last of the Starwhales
I see the earth it’s burning and i hear the children scream
When they should be running, laughing, and living out their dreams
I know that i must help and i know what i can do
They can climb on my back and i’ll take them somewhere new
Cuz i’m old and i’m kind and i can’t let children cry
So i swoop in like a miracle coming from the sky
I’m the last one left there is no other of my kind
So i’ll travel through the stars and see what i can find
I’m a starwhale, the last of the starwhales
And i don’t want to see you die
I’m a starwhale, the last of the starwhale
But why must you tie me down
Don’t tie me down

I looked down from my TARDIS and what did i see
But starship UK drifting down below me
i popped in for a visit just to pay my respects
But a quiet crying girl made me stop in my tracks
Cuz i’m old and i’m kind and i can’t let children cry
So i swoop in like a miracle coming from the sky
I’m the last one left there is no other of my kind
So i’ll travel through the stars and see what i can find
I’m a timelord, the last of the timelords
And i don’t want to see you die
I’m a timelord, the last of the timelord
But why must you let me down
Don’t let me down

i’m just a silly human who chose to forget
but knowing the starwhale could die makes me break into a sweat
i see it playing with the children and know it isn’t filled with greed
so i set the starwhale free and it increases speed
Cuz he’s old and he’s kind and he can’t let children cry
So he swooped in like a miracle coming from the sky
He’s the last one left there is no other of his kind
So he’ll travel through the stars and see what he can find
He’s a starwhale, the last of the starwhales
And i don’t want to see him die
He’s a starwhale, the last of the starwhales
He shouldn’t be tied down
Don’t tie him down
Track Name: The Family of Blood
We’re on a quest, were on a hunt
We need to find the time lord at once
we’ll use our noses to track him down
he’s gone into hiding and isn’t making a sound
we’ll search through time and we’ll search through space
until we’ve put the doctor on our dinner plates

We are the family of blood
We don’t want to die
So we need to eat your insides
Or we only have three months to be alive
We want to stay alive we want to stay alive

Father of mine wouldn’t it be great
If we got the doctor over for a lunch date
Mother of mine I am quite famished
Let’s consume a time lord so we won’t be malnourished
And sister of mine what do you think?
Would eating john smith be a tasty treat?

The doctor is human he hid his time lord in a watch
We just need to find it and open the latch
Some kid stole the watch now we must track him down
But john smith gave up his life and now the doctors around
We wanted to live forever but not like this
I’m trapped as a scarecrow our plan ran amiss
Track Name: Dear Santa
There’s a crack in my wall
And i don’t know what to do about it
So i’ll ask for some help
To see if someone knows a quick wall crack fix
Who could help me out?
Who knows everything about everything?
Santa you’re the one
To send me someone to see what i’m missing
Dear santa
Bring me a raggedy doctor, to take me on adventures, to show me the world
Hey santa
One that likes fishfingers that are dipped in custard and whose life is a whirlwind
A whirlwind through time

Doctor there you are
You’ve been gone for a really long time
That cracks still there in my wall
And you’ve discovered a room that i’d forgotten was mine
Now prisoner zero has come out
Dressed as a man taking his dog for a walk
Now here come a voice from above
what is all this incineration talk

the doctor says i need to believe
for 20 minutes if we are gonna save everyone
so hey there stop that nurse
who is not taking pictures of the sun
the doctor will use rory’s phone
to show the atraxi where thy need to go
with three minutes to spare
the doctor will save the world and put on quite a show
Track Name: My Reality
This has to be the real world cuz you are here with me
And i don’t want anyone but you
This has to be the real world and it’s you and me and soon a little baby
And i don’t want anything but you
I’ve always known and hope that i’ve shown that you are my reality
And i take every chance that i get to tell you
How much i really love you

What rings true isn’t so simple and you can’t spot a dream while you’re in it
But dream or not i just want to hold you’re hand
Whether settled down and having a baby or off with the doctor and still on adventures
There’s nowhere else that i would rather be
Than with you

This can’t be the real world cuz you aren’t here with me
And i don’t want anyone but you
This can’t be the real world and if it is i don’t want to be in it
Cuz i don’t want anything but you
I didn’t know until just now that you are my reality
And i wish that i had gotten the chance to tell you
How much i really love you

This here is the real world and i know because we’ve beaten the dreamlord
And here i am standing next to you
So tell me how did you know that the dream world wasn’t the real one
I don’t know what but i think something happened to me.
You died and you were turned into dust and it shattered my reality
I couldn’t live in a world where you never knew
How much i really loved you
