A crooked pub propped up the corner of the street Opposite a furniture shop called Everything But The Girl Rocket shaped signs declared Spacemade! A brother of a brother-in-law tore all the houses down Moved the people to the outskirts To places where the buses run But no one knows quite where they are I'd just sold my bass guitar I ran down Spring Bank in the rain Tears mingling with the water I knew it had to be though I knew there'd be some pain We've got a gig tonight We need someone with a car Amplifiers, stolen PA My Teisco Top Twenty guitar Some people never cross the river The accents are different on the other side of town Winter sets in amid the stench of fog and fish Free 'n' Easy Nite and Carlton Bingo They say they're going to build a bridge Connecting nowhere in particular with Where no one wants to go Old glories fade away Derelicted houses the ghosts of yesterday Ruined factories on the east side of town They're slated for revival so they'll soon be coming down I'd just sold my bass guitar I ran down Spring Bank in the rain Tears mingling with the water I knew it had to be though I knew there'd be some pain We've got a gig tonight We need someone with a car Amplifiers, stolen PA My Teisco Top Twenty guitar Make way for Europe It's the start of something big Gateway to Europe It's the start of something big

All there is is time Hold that thought and it's gone The fragile here and now Where we mark time as time moves on Increment by increment Minutes turn into years The Earth spinning round the Sun Or did I get that wrong I was so much better informed When the world revolved around me

Flash 02:08
Sitting all alone inside the house Wondering what might have been if I'd gone out Exploring possibilities within my rancid mind Inventing strange scenarios that really cross the line It's dark and it's howling and the local supermarket Is filled with disappointments but it's gonna have to do Staring at the clock with no idea How the fucking hell did I get here Sick on Easter chocolates And cheery Christmas cheer Summertime is coming round again I think I better phone someone and try to make amends For something that I haven't done or something that I have The seasons are all coming round too quickly now It seems to me the Beach Boys told a lie Summer isn't endless it's just endless looking back You get your chance make a stand then it's over in a flash

They don't mean no harm But that don't make them harmless Here comes another one he's Gonna have your arm off These teeth they're razor sharp and You can't dis-arm them Down here in the deep Where the sun don't reach The dark ages of man Crawls onto land Come on come on come on come on You know what they say Well neither do they Here comes another one he's Gonna have your arm off There's no democracy just Gold-plated armour Down here in the deep Where the sun don't reach Before the dark ages of man Crawled onto dry land Come on come on come on come on

Hey I don't mean to be your fanboy But how d'you make your records sound Like your records sound to me? Is this your car? It looks very stylish I bet you drive it fast Is this your wife? Lucky lady Well, how did someone like you Luck out with a woman like that? You know I've never really liked you I thought I did but it was just a pose And you you've got everything I want I want to be you I suppose And all your records are shit Except for maybe one And I'm your biggest fan If I can't tell you then who can? And here come the dischords Here comes the bit That's goona stop this from being a hit

Everything is gonna be groovy Like some happy clappy I-Phone movie That you made and spread around the internet Lest you forget Forget Forget Forget who you are In some sanitary vision of real life No fuss no mess no stickiness And no substances You can forget Forget Forget Forget who you are Nobody can see your face anymore Nobody can hear you cry You control the circumstances The how the what the when and why You can forget Forget Forget Forget who you are

40 Years 03:19
Forty years ago I didn't have tuppence for the phone I lived in one unheated room That I didn't quite call home And I didn't call home In about six months I said hey it's me your prodigal son I swear one day I'm gonna make you proud I said I'd make you proud Just to hear it said out loud But I didn't care Forty years ago I didn't know anything much back then About the ways of this world The wickedness of men The wickedness of men yes I was one of them The sadness the insanity The sickness and the sin And I'd swear most days I'd never do that again I'd never do that again I'd never do that again I did it again And I can't sleep at night sometimes For thinking about the times Useless times I've spent just wishing Wishing time away Wishing time away Life throws up the same old lessons Until you learn them And I've got so many lessons left to learn I wish that I could burn it all I'm coming unravelled here Once you catch a thread You can pull it all loose I'm beaten I'm done I've run right out of juice

I ran past the paper shop And the bingo hall I Crossed the the road by the Fruit and Vegetable market stall Across the green the morning sun was Shining down on everyone As I picked up speed and Caught the bus I thought about the two of us The two of us I paid my fare I Climbed the stairs I Noticed that the autumn nip was Well and truly in the air From Shepherds Bush to Hammersmith The bus filled up the air was thick with Cigarette smoke royal blue and All the time I thought of you I thought of you I thought of us I thought albout the two of us The two of us The two of us

We were descended from dinosaurs We weren't meant to survive Roll around for a few million years And wash away on the tide The houses have no use anymore The factories the cars Best laid schemes - dinosaurs A distant flicker a faraway star Hey look at you you're quite a catch Two steps removed from an unnatural act Rolling out with both ends burning Can't seem to separate the facts from the facts Some say there's been a space invasion They're living in the bodies of men They haven't quite got the design right And now it's us and them The same old moon pulls the tides That clothe and strip the beach Underneath the weight of Jupiter and Mars A distant flicker from a faraway star Hey look at you you're quite a catch Two steps removed from an unnatural act Rolling out with both ends burning Can't seem to separate the facts from the facts Enough of this shit, enough of this shit When are we gonna get enough of this shit?
