Take this water drink it from my hands Drink it all for me, drink it all for you Take my clothes rip them from my skin I am worthless I am paying for my sins This is the furthest I've been without you And I'm completely lost I bit the bullet and it broke my teeth Tell me whose in control? My memory is narrow I am woosey and weak but this is hardly rare Loosen the noose. Release me from the gallows. I am a starving boy. Running from my shadow This is the furthest I've been from nowhere And I'm completely gone I bit the bullet and it shattered my dreams Blinding sun is in my eyes nearly makes me cry I am so sorry that I'm not a machine You can't fix me I was never ill I'm strong as an ox Life is still a thrill This is the furthest I've been from safety And I'm completely done I bit the bullet and broke me Use escape routes or arguments I can see it now you give me the blame For poisoning the air Crush me like a car throw me to the scrap I am in control your life is on my lap This is the furthest I've been without you And I'm completely fine I bit the bullet as hard as I could I'm completely fine I bit the bullet as hard as I could I’m completely fine I bit the bullet and it shattered my dreams I'm completely fine I bit the bullet and it broke my teeth

Monster 03:11
Fever rushes through my bones oh no Growing wings to go it alone oh no Just suck it up suck it up No-one here gives a flying Cough it up cough it up Cause it's stuck in your lungs I hate to swear and lose my head This monster inside me needs fed A black abyss is what I dread (I need to) place good thoughts inside my head You're holding back on me I think you are But you can’t do that to me You can’t do that to me Just suck it up suck it up No-one here gives a flying Cough it up cough it up Cause it's stuck in your lungs I hate to swear and lose my head This monster inside me needs fed A black abyss is what I dread (I need to) place good thoughts inside my head Place good thoughts inside my head

I was crushed by an an angel I was crushed to the core I wasn't taken up with her I was flat on the floor Oh how I wish I could follow Just to see how it felt I am no angel Yet I am in perfect health Why is this so? Lord help me Lord save me Lord know There's plenty of love when it grows But twisting the key don't open doors I’ve had to kick through the lock on yours Alcohol is sweet on my pallet But it starts fights God help you if you look at her wrong I was crushed by an angel We used to sit on the wall She used to tell me her secrets But never told me them all Oh how I wish I could follow Just to see how it felt I am no angel Yet I am in perfect health Why is this so? Lord help me Lord save me Lord know There's plenty of love when it grows But twisting the key don't open doors I had to kick through the lock on yours Alcohol is sweet on my pallet But it starts fights God help you if you look at her wrong

Summers grey and old but I am here still Winters cold but at the back of my throat there's pain I can see that you're good to me I know You can give me anything Hand on heart we’d a rocky start but now Everything you do blows my mind Traffics stopped we'd be better off walking Your lips are moving so I guess that you're talking still I am elsewhere I always am One day I will pass your exam You can see that I'm in a dream again I swear my head lives in the clouds Hand on heart if we ever part I’d collapse Everything you do blows my mind Talent like yours is rare I know You could make me anything Colour glows on the canvas shows you’re pure Everything you do blows my mind

Since I’ve fallen south With my devilish mouth I think I’ve gone insane Emptying my brain I wanna get inside Your mind to ask Do you remember June? Mid summer with you Yeah I remember june Under cover Blue sky at night knocked me out Yeah it knocks me out Lying on the grass Dreaming of the past Replaying each scene An impossible dream And I slowly get inside Your mind Yeah I remember June Mid summer with you Yeah I remember june Under cover Blue sky at night knocks me out Yeah it knocks me out Oh oh oh Do you remember June? Mid summer with you Yeah I remember june Under cover Blue sky at night knocks me out Yeah it knocked me out

I've seen it now too many times To try and read between the lines You give away nothing I hurt you with a thousand crimes I'll get it right I know I will After the final whistle blows All you need is me and my company But I am sober And I am drenched With the love a have for you Just come home I'll still be here After the final whistle blows After the final whistle blows I'll kiss your head down to your toes I see a home inside your eyes A place I go when I despise All the world and everything But you give me hope And you give me love All I need is you You're my everything You're a sparkle in a dark world I cannot live with the light I still mean it Every word I am shield against the storm So come home early I'll light the fire I need to give you everything I am sober And I am drenched With the love a have for you Just come home I'll still be here After the final whistle blows After the final whistle blows After the final whistle blows After the final whistle blows After the final whistle blows The time when everybody goes I'll still be standing here You in love with me is my everything

Without worry or permission I know where you’ve been fishing For sharks in our seas And I know where you hide the teeth Young enough to be so fucked up You can’t feel the fist Flying through the air You’re old and wiser now bud Someone read me a poem or sing me a harmony Someone feed the lions they’re lickin' their lips and staring at me Take me anywhere you want to I’ll be the perfect passenger I’ll stare out the windows and trees Or I’ll listen to your music Fast blood runs through me I’ll sharpen my arrow Shoot sharks in our seas I’ve turned into a killer Someone read me a poem or sing me a harmony Someone feed the lions they’re lickin' their lips and staring at me We are all just cubs who’ve left our packs to find some meat Sometimes all we need is a poem or a harmony to help us sleep Someone read me a poem or sing me a harmony Someone feed the lions they’re lickin' their lips and staring at me

I am here and I am there My face is everywhere I hear my name a lot But I quite like my family name And I enjoy the shame I bring to it Come back to Paris I’m still here By the carousel of fear Red wine by the Seine Mahogany veneer yet you will only hear These feelings when I’m lit Come join us here by the overgrown Old grass tennis court I think that it’s our own We’ll stay here for hours cause no-one knows it’s here but us You made the bus disappear Future kings of Spain were near You made me laugh to tears I urinated in the room so I clearly thought that you Would run for miles Edinburgh’s sky lines clear Arthur’s memories are dear Your mother is here with us Although now not in flesh I’m sure that she would bless me as a son in law Come join us here by the overgrown Old grass tennis court I think that it’s our own We’ll stay here for hours cause no-one knows it’s here but us This paradise is now disused Except by summer drinking youths Whose parents aren’t aware But I can’t help but drift away To a tournament back in the day And I’m cheering you on Come join us here by the overgrown Old grass tennis court It is ours today Happy puppy barks Little red flanger and you and I Come join us here by the overgrown Old grass tennis court I think that it’s our own We’ll stay here for hours No-one knows it’s here but us

Glasgow 03:39
It was a minute past noon on train speeding fast Through the dark foggy hills outside Glasgow Wipe the sweat from my brow And the tears from my eyes I was tired but I had to keep moving I’ll remember that “fuck you” forever And the whistling wind 6 feet stomped on my back When I called Marian to tell her She said I had to keep singing And that one day we’d form a band Called No Doughnuts For Dogs We have the name but no songs Cause I feel the weight of the world on my back I keeled over today All I see is black and the blood on the tracks But I had to leave Glasgow behind I had to leave Glasgow behind It was 8 in the morning on Haverstock Hill Mary take me to the Heath I can’t sing tonight but I know that i will Take a deep breath and throw on my armour I remember that hug I gave Amy and my leaves fell off I left them to die there in Camden These 3 angels saved me They’re my guiding star Now everything I see on the horizon Is endless beauty to me Endless beauty is all I see Cause I feel the weight of the world on my back I keel over today All I see is black and the blood on the track But I had to leave Glasgow behind The rose that I live for had withered and died I had to leave Glasgow behind I had to leave Glasgow behind

Half light in the morning time I can see it in your eyes you’ve been crying I know it’s all a waste of time See I never will forget the dark tint of your words Your words I am not the same any more I am always changing Half light I could barely see Everything I love was dying In front of me The fog lifts, its a distant dream But I never will forget the sweet sound of your words Your words I am not the same any more I am always changing Come back I am not the same any more I am always changing
