Track Name: Big E
one by one
you get your way
time by time
you lie to me
one by one
you get your way
time by time
you get to me
focus on the task at hand
face the future fuck the past
focus on the task at hand
i don't owe you anything
focus on the task at hand
face the future face the facts
focus on the task at hand
i don't owe you anything
Track Name: Lies
say you got
a boyfriend
you don't got
a boyfriend
i don't see why you should lie
in my lovelife
lately i
got more nos
than pinocchio
i don't see what i do wrong
instead of swinging i'm singing this song
i don't see why i should lie
tell the truth
i don't mind
if i'm ugly then
do decline
lately i
i'm a 45
call me seven inch
cuz i'm single like
this circumstance it just ain't right
i don't see why i should lie
it's not just doctors who can reasonably destroy a man
but i don't know if he'll take no for an answer
i guess after a while it doesn't really matter
you just start wearing beige and not minding as much
Track Name: Chicken
i could tell you something if i even knew how to do it
i could tell you something if i even knew how
when you run away showing your face
when you run away show me your face
when you run blood shot in the face
when you run away
where do you go when you run away
run away
where do you go when you run
when you run away red in the face
i could give you something if i even knew where to put it
i could give you something if i even knew where
where do you go when you run away
run away
Track Name: Deathwish MF

Track Name: Imagine A Dog
i know i want something
something i don't need
i want everything that's not coming to me
your threshold of misery
is a point somewhere out to sea
i will charter a boat and providing it floats
i will be there to disagree
i got a captain's hat
commands authority
perched atop my head
anything you say is tantamount to mutiny
reason turns to red
i know i want something
something i don't need
i want everything that
you can't give to me
i know i done bad
said something i should not have
a careless lie
meanings multiply
in the mouths and ears of them
now you've heard their own rendition of the facts
go and tell your friends
this is not a man to be trusted
you heard what they said
imagine a dog
i can't believe the things you say
imagine a day without complaint or confrontation
imagine a mouth
that was such a stupid thing to say
imagine a song the radio is only pay to play
sail away
Track Name: Chips For Pink
i wish i could take back
ever having read
all the stupid things you said
you're fat and ugly
you look like you're full of home interiors
your cheeks are stuffed with laura ashley cushion covers
and cushions
you look like you go skiing
only it's not cool when you do it
you look like an action figure
too many accessories
you thought that cream sweater was a good idea
sometimes it is
but not now
you're a phone twat
and i'm a caffeine prick
you look like a friendship circle made of the least popular characters from sitcoms
why are none of you disappointed
Track Name: Tick Tock
stop thinking you're accepted
stop thinking you're one of them
what were you thinking?
your company is limited
insolvent socially
no interest for you or me
you're limited company
buy one get one free
you'll never be one of them
Track Name: Narrowman
i am the narrowman
i know no depth or span
no room for love or hate
i can only fixate
i am the narrow king
narrow saint
potentate
fire in my marrow man
the good in me is turning into shadow man
i am the narrowman
Track Name: Swan Song
the weight is getting getting to me
setting setting in
and i'm forgetting getting everything i know
the air is thick
the heavy heavy air
but you can't say it's not been fun
and the threat of happiness is looming looming large
and it's keeping me awake
and it's keeping me afraid
oh oh
that the love is unrequited is a matter of course
that you fail in all you do
now the words are coming thick and thick and fast
now the words don't come at all
oh oh
Track Name: Bristol Defector Hex
this is my friday night
standing here in tesco
it's six degrees outside
two with wind chill factor
i got one reply
from two friends that i texted
the one said never mind
the usual excuses
ordering a drink for one
is actually quite easy
standing there and drinking it
is another thing entirely
there's never anywhere to sit
and leaning just looks awkward
it's not like you see in films
there's nobody to talk to
you're constantly aware
of the line of proper conduct
when sociability
just becomes harassment
so it's a dinner date for one
a cinema ticket for one
a three course meal for one
a team building exercise for one
a tandem bike ride for one
ice skating for one
coffee for one
his 'n' hers towel set for one
romantic evening in front of the fire for one
funeral for one
Track Name: Worried
you walk all day in shoes that don't fit
you say it's a metaphor for life but i don't think it is
how can it be
oh how can it be
i think it's great that you know my name
it's really great that you recognise my face
how can it be
oh can it be
i don't wanna be embarrassed for the rest of my life
i don't wanna be worried about what just might come
rolling round the corner after every night with you
you tried to be the perfect gentleman
i tried to be the perfect lady
but it's been a while
oh it's been a while
since you called me baby
Track Name: Me And My Sister
there's a table in the middle of the room
in a house on the capel road drawing cartoons
this was our grandparent's house in the sticks
and i'm not quite five
and you're not quite six
and you were there
mainlining heroin
there's a sofa in the middle of a room
full of mahogany heartbreak and gloom
this was our father's house after the split
and i'm doctor who
and you're dusty bin
and you were there
freebasing benylin
stirring the sulphate in
spilling the fancy gin
letting the rain come in
turning off the immersion
stealing my medicine
being embarrassing
and i remember one bonfire night
you were there
kicking the front door in
there's a house in the middle of the street
the top half is metal
the bottom concrete
this was the house in which your childhood died
and i didn't see
i was resting my eyes
and you weren't there
Track Name: UNVRSY
you say you want me
you say you want me to be there
when you fall
but you act like you don't
you act like you don't need me there
at all
you never say
Track Name: None Under
well whaddya know
i didn't fall into the sea
well whaddya know
i didn't stick a knife in me
looks like the sun will shine
well whaddya know
the weather doesn't care about me
hail wind and snow are unconnected emotionally
call it apathetic fallacy
this life is not enough for me
well whaddya know
i didn't fall into the sea
well whaddya know
i didn't put a knife in me
one life is not enough for me
