  1. 1998 senesinde çıkan pulp albümü this is hardcore'un sondan ikinci şarkısı. hayatın getirdiği hayalkırıklıklarının anlatıldığı bir şarkıdır. "görkemli günlerimiz" diyerek de aslında durum ile dalga geçilmektedir. "uzay yarışıyla büyüdük ama şimdi bizden tuvalet temizlememizi istiyorlar", "gel bu altın çağı benimle paylaş, tek odalı apartman dairemde" ve "eğer beni arıyorsan ben bu görkemli günler boyunca uyuyor olacağım" gibi güzel ifade edilmiş sözlere sahiptir.

    come and play the tunes of glory
    raise your voice in celebration
    of the days that we have wasted
    in the cafe, in the station
    and learn the meaning of existence
    in fortnightly instalments
    come share this golden age with me
    in my single room apartment
    and if it all amounts to nothing
    it doesn't matter
    these are still our glory days

    oh my face is unappealing
    and my thoughts are unoriginal
    i did experiments with substances
    but all it did was make me ill
    and i used to do the i ching
    but then i had to feed the meter
    now i can't see into the future
    but at least i can use the heater
    oh it doesn't get much better than this
    cause this is how we live our glory days

    oh and i could be a genius
    if i just put my mind to it
    and i, i could do anything
    if only i could get round to it
    oh we were brought up on the space race
    now they expect you to clean toilets
    when you've seen how big the world is
    how can you make do with this?
    if you want me i'll be sleeping in
    sleeping in throughout these glory days

    these glory days can take their toll
    so catch me now
    before i turn to gold
    yeah we'd love to hear your story
    just as long as it tells us where we are
    that where we are is where we're meant to be
    oh come on make it up yourself
    you don't need anybody else
    and i promise i won't sell these days
    to anybody else in the world but you
    no one but you
