The title track of the album pretty much sums up the aim of the project


Overspill - living in the overspill
On the edge of dominant economies
Suburb evacuees pass right under the overspill
Packed into a train through some tunnelling
Work is such a drain
But it's better than living with a padlock & grille
In the overspill

Overspill - such a poor relationship
There is underfunding and a cemetery
Buses can never be there on time in the overspill
City down the road suffered overkill
In relation to full employment and buildings
And it's lording it, still
Over the overspill

Who decided on this name?
"Outskirts" isn't the same
That's because they're different
And live behind a hill

Overspill - let me take a photograph
I can show the rest of a contented world
Why it should have a youth club and playground
The boys & girls want to hang around these environments
They can learn a lot
While the bulldozers elsewhere
Help the workmen get ill
In the overspill


from Overspill, released June 17, 2011
