Track Name: Inside this room
My reverse psychology is working
At least we're certainly reversing
Our attempts of continuous elation
Make the saddest situation

This is such a mess
It goes from something
Into nothing
Into less
We've said it's wrong
It still goes on
Inside this room

I give in
I'm locked out
Let you down
I fucked up
It fell through
It's gone under
It's over
It's over

And I've tried all I can
But I can't understand
Why you won't even try
To stand up and defy it

And I thought every day
It'd just go away
You'd decide to give in
And invite it back in

And I've tried to control
And I've not to care
but we're both so aware
That life shouldn't be like this

Oh. My love is dead,
My love is dead
My love just died with everything else
That we destroyed
While we avoided
That life shouldn't be like this

Nothing on earth
Makes me more annoyed than I do
So God knows what I do to you

Nothing on earth
Makes you more depressed than you do
So God knows what we're going to do

There's a room in our world
And it seems to control
Every mood
And the moment
Is coated and coded

It's like painting by numbers
Ignoring the numbness
Re-watching a film
And expecting the ending to change just this once

And then strangely it doesn'
So we'll change what we playeded it on,
Watch it again
And then strangely the ending
Remains just the same
So we'll change what we played it on
Should it be like this?

Oh my love....

I tried it once and found it
Didn't kill me, didn't kill
And by the third time
I've forgotten that it ever will

I give in I'm locked out...

Nothing on earth...

It fell through and it's over...

Makes me more annoyed than I do...

There's a door
But it's broken
It sticks when you close it
It's best just to leave it alone when it's open.
Track Name: Someone
Well what do'ya know
Someone's ruined my life
It was like this when I got here
I was out of the room
So it can't have been me
Someone should have done something to stop it

Well what do'ya know someone's fucked with my head
And I only left it for a second
They were clever and cruel
And my life is now doomed
Shouldn't someone do something to fix it

Well what do'ya know someone got me a job
And it sucks, and I hate every minute
When my weekend is here
Someone fills me with beer
I just can't believe someone would do that

My life my soul and my plans
My head my heart - in your hands.

Well what do'ya know
someones broken my heart
and I think that they did it in purpose
And I've run out of luck and my friends are all fuckers
They don't understand about someone.

Your life is my situation now.

Well what do'ya know
Someone's strangled my future
I'm waiting for someone to fix it
I could reach for the stars
And achieve all I wanted
But only if Someone would let me.
Track Name: I know a boy
Emma's party
Made you nervous
You were partly
Under influence of beer and fools
And fear of solitude
Take your hand down
From your mouth now
No-one's going to
Laugh at you at least not to your face
Unless you run away

I know a girls who wants to be with you
I know a girl who loves the things you do
She's got a sexy alter-ego wrapped in tin foil in her pocket
It might turn her into Venus or it might just make her violent.

Push your hair back
From your face now
'Cause you know you're
Most ingenious on days like these
You're lovely and you're free

Every glance is utter poetry
And your chance is
Now or so it seems
It's all so smooth
And beautiful
And cruel

I know a boy who wants to be with you
I know a boy who love the things you do
He's got a sexy way of meaning much more than he is saying
And his eyes stay you much longer than anyone he's seeing.

And all you really want is to
Be anywhere but here
Just anywhere as long as you're not there.

I know a girl who wants to be with you
I know a girl who love the things you do
She'll take your love as an absolutely permanent fact
So she might become just a little unstable
When you ask for it back.
Track Name: Sex
This is my only
My one and only
Don't try to stop me
I have a theory

There's a season for good will
A season for sunshine
A season for sickness
And fog in your front room
There's days for a good girl and
Days for a bad girl
And days to keep quiet and hide all the papers.

When God closes a door
Then he opens another
If one man gets tired
Then there's always his brother
And over the hall lies their unmarried sister
Awaken her gently
Offer to F-F-F-F
Find her an ideal man
Gold rings
Temazepam
It's easy (easy)
Love and marriage
Horse and Carriage
Start the car and close the garage - easy (easy)

It's such fun to awake from the most confusing evening off your head
Have a try - identify - who is with you in your bed
With a hop
And a skip
And a dirty, dirty mind
Wonder through our market town
Come and see what you can find

When God....

A delicate romance is
Filling the air
Somewhere between Bridge Street and The Moon On The Square
A sophisticated gentlemen
Strokes the lady's hair
And whispers sweet nothings
Such as:

"Darling. No really. I mean it. I really really love you. I love you. I love you.
I really really mean it. No really. I mean it. I really really love you. I love you. I love you"

He said that she said...I'm not sure if it's true
but the one who used to see that man....
well...
apparently....
she's...
WHAT? lesbian! NO! ARRGH!
There's a season to be jolly
There's a season to get trollied
There's a season to go mating, dating and debating
Who will be the lucky lady
Who will be there are you heterosexual,
homosexual, anyone-who'll-have-me-sexual...?
Those rumours had an awful sting
But nobody can prove a thing
I stumbled home at 7.30
That is why my knees were dirty
Thought I'd covered all my tracks
Nearly had a heart attack
There's CCTV cameras on Abingotn Square.

There's a season....

Right then. I will then. Just watch me.
I really will go home now.
Go home now. Go home now.Ireally really mean it. No really. Imean it. I really will go home now. Go home now. Go home now.

Can I stay?

When God closes a door
Then he laughs at you inadequacies
One mangets tired
'Cos you're not as good at that as he is
Over the hall
Well she's with your old PE teacher

Climb out the window
And wash yourself down
Some might say you're public spirited
Some might say you're a slag.

Don't feel bad.
Track Name: Beautiful
There's a game you can play when you're a little insane dear
It's good to show
Yourself you're bad
Catch your breath in a little green net and be done here
I'm pleased for you
And sad for me
If I recall the only time
I ever saw you really smile
I think it was the day they sent the rain
No matter how ard the rain smashed down
And soaked your face
And ruined your clothes
It never washed away your smile that day.

How can being precious make you angry
How can being wonderful prove virtually fatal
How can being thoughtful drive you crazy
How can being beautiful be sad?

There's a game you can play when you know you're insane dear
I'd like to know
If we're playing now
Your computerised friends love you more than you will know
Or I can tell you
They join your bed at night and keep you safe
If I recall the only time
I ever saw your timeless eyes
Gazing through my head into my heart
Every foot-print you make

Changes somebody's life in a good way
It's time for you
To change your own

How can...

Things'll happen - melodrama is a woman we all know
Things'll happen in a manner, in a manger, on the dole
Things are stranger in the mornings things are sadder when you're sleeping
Or trying to.
Take a minute to remember just exactly where you are
Take your medication with you on your alcoholic falls
Things are stranger in the mornings
Things are sadder when you're sleeping

There's a face that you have when there's no-one around you
It's beautiful
It makes me smile
Every footprint you make
Changes somebody's life in a good way
It's time for you
To change your own.
