Track Name: Of Yr ❤ [heart]
The boiler is leaking and my bones are freezing and my face is beaten like an old bass drum.
My brain is cluttered like a teenager’s bedroom and a teenager’s bedroom is where I belong.
[woah woah]
Come home.

First she is drinking and then she is sleeping and apologising when she wakes up.
New Years can be pretty hard but my only resolution is giving up.
[woah woah]
Come home.

Maybe I should take up smoking to make myself seem more interesting.
[Giving up on doors and people yeah]
Maybe I would feel happy if I had 2 of everything.
[Giving up on doors and people yeah]

I wanna be the live-in building manager of your heart.
Or the Happy Meal movie adaptation of your heart.
Or the bad dictionary definition of your heart.
The cheap plastic surgeon cutting up pieces of your heart.

It’s snowing! It’s snowing! That’s amazing! There’s something in every single flake!
Please don’t let the beauty trick you into forgetting the industrial estate.

I wanna be the live-in building manager of your heart.
Or the Happy Meal movie adaptation of your heart.
Or the bad dictionary definition of your heart.
The cheap plastic surgeon cutting up pieces of your heart.

Maybe I should take up smoking to make myself seem more interesting.
[Giving up on doors and people yeah]
Maybe I would feel happy…
Track Name: Carol
Don’t forget rap metal.
Let it remind you that things can get better.
Carol’s outside and she is feeling pretty clever.
Covered up as she is in a pile of fifteen sweaters.
I’ve got a headache I’ve been up for days.
In Wilkinson’s shoplifting tins of spraypaint.
I’ve been online on message boards, learning about tags.
I wanna make one up for my dad.

Carol’s got the weather.
And she won’t give it back.

Have you ever been stung by a bee?
Have you ever been stung by me?

I promise one day I’ll find out how much your baby weighs.
On that day I’ll also find out exactly how much money you make.
I know these are the most important things.
In my left pocket there’s a miniature bible.
In my right a teeny tiny Jesus Christ.
I know that I won’t be alright.

Carol’s got the weather.
And she won’t give it back.
Track Name: Levity
Less paint, more muscle.
Shaped like a tank would be too much trouble.
I’d be late for my own funeral.
If I hadn’t planned it myself.

Levity is a funny tie.

Like a bus stop covered with smashed up egg.
You still live where I got kicked in the head.
In 3 weeks time I could be dead.
Said the funny little policeman himself.

Levity is a funny tie.

I’d be late for my own funeral.

Levity.

I lost my sense of humour and I lost track of time.
I’m still searching for pockets of wine.
If cleanliness is next to godliness
Then thank God I am next to you.

Levity is a funny tie.

I’d be late for my own funeral.
Track Name: She's No Longer Got That Vibe
You break it you bought it
The scenery’s haunted
The walls they are bleeding
And feeding on us
If I had a twin then I’d probably kill it
A mirror is hard enough

I am dead
Tired of this

It’s easy to admit that I am sick of this place
It’s easier to admit that you are sick of my face
If you’ve got a job
Then why don’t you give it
To the work experience girl instead

I am dead
Tired of this

Putting punctuation where letters should be
I’m writing nuisance letters to the BBC
I wanna know
Where the old people go
When the old people go to die
Track Name: Slump
What’s the point in getting better getting better anyway there’s always gonna be someone better than you?

Giving up
Track Name: Judge Dredd T-Shirt
Have you met my friend?
Have you met my friend?
He’s got a lot going for him
He’s got all his own teeth and a new car

I have not seen him since 1996
Since shoplifting
Since Lynx
Since giving the wrong names out to the police

Down by the river someone found a dead body
Let’s go along
We can throw sticks at it

Carved all my memories
Into the branches of the Vulture Tree
I remember Rocky’s mum
I remember Judge Dredd T-shirt

Down by the river someone found a dead body
Let’s go along
We can throw sticks at it

Have you met my friend?
Have you met my friend?
He’s got a lot going for him
He’s got all his own teeth and a new car

Bad loser on The Movie Game
Playing marbles on every drain
Starting fires down by that Vulture Tree
Cousin Gavin was more junglist than me
Me

Down by the river someone found a dead body
Let’s go along
We can throw sticks at it
Down by the river it all ends the same
We got there too late but that was ok
Track Name: SFF
Hey Dave, Hey Dave
What you watching today?
Hey Dave, Hey Dave
Throw your batteries away

We’re bored

Hey Dave, Hey Dave
Here come the kids
Hey Dave, Hey Dave
Apologise for what you did

What a lizard what a lizard

Behind the door there is another door

All hope is gone
Track Name: Lights Off
Give the humans what they want
Happy children and happy dogs
Put your hand inside of mine
I promise that you won’t catch on fire

Turn the lights off before you go

Give us somewhere to park our boats
Give us somewhere to meet our buses
Daniel’s finger got reattached
These things happen when we get distracted
Holy hopefuls hoping hoping
Ladies first and wash your hands
Everything seemed so tall to start
As we get older so things seem smaller

Turn the lights off before you go
Track Name: Guangzhou Romance Musical Instruments Co.
“Where did you find my love?”
“It was beneath a tree”
“And did you find that it was enough?”
“It was enough for me”

I saw a smile through the back of your head

You are disgusting
But I still love you
Track Name: So Gone
Smoke
Smoke
Something smells of smoke
Choke yourself on the words you spoke
Rest your head on the things you said
They’re soft because they’re wrong

So gone

The door is closed
The door is closed
I’m wondering where you got those clothes
They look pretty good
As well they should
They cost you all you got

So gone
