Track Name: Drains
DRAINS

I’ll stay as I am and force a smile
Follow me to the moors on your own
A coat to keep you cold, dressed in your brothers clothes
Your man on a pedestal, smothered in compliments
My past, your future in tense
I am not myself, I feel none too well, but never mind
I do my best work behind a blind eye
So stay as you are and force a smile

I’ll race you to the door and i’ll win
Take the brick off the brake and suck in the air
That bleeds from me, claret drains in a war
Dearest dear, this won’t hurt us at all

Skipping alongside what I thought was racing by
Holding on by your side

Lay me down with a tie and a toll
Lay me low you lascivious drone
Lay me down with a tie and a toll
Pile it up, pile it up
If I paint him I paint you, just another iron on prick in a suit
It’s the regimented hair and the pages you fill
I’d give you all the same fucking pill
The air, it bleeds from me, claret drains in a war
Dearest dear, this won’t hurt us at all

Skipping alongside what I thought was racing by
Holding on by your side
Track Name: RAUS!
RAUS!
Three words pawning the best of me
Culture creeps outside and we know
Stall wart, peer from beneath the shade
Take your place up there with the rodants
It’s how it starts

Three birds torn from the nest with me
But I did not speak out
Gang names pay for another train
Take your place outside in the cold

So who are you trying to kid?
Different name, same blood on the page
Well? Who are you trying to kid?
I see a space
Come and get it
Come and get it
Raus! Raus!

I’d love to wear your make up for a day,
Then I might see
This could be what ought to be, but fortified incestry makes it hard.

Three words pawning the best of me
Culture creeps outside and we know
David, this blind swarm you think you’ve seen
They look strangely human to me

So who are you trying to kid?
Different name, same blood.
So who are you trying to kid?
Parliament closes, out file the clowns
Raus! Raus!
Track Name: Bullingdon Boys
BULLINGDON BOYS

Who are you?
Captain neck beard and his logical bellend friends
The bullingdon boys burning notes in front of the homeless
Look it up

The cunts from the mail and other tabloid hacks
Misogynists I’d like to set on fire
Deniers of holocausts present and past

That’s neither here, nor there
Carry on

Who are you?
These are your glorious leaders
Their sons are your glorious leaders
Your whole street means less than a single unborn fucking Boris faced foetus
I said “don’t you just hate people sometimes”
He said “hate’s a very strong word, but sometimes it’s deserved”

That’s neither here, nor there
Carry on

Blow by blow
Track Name: Mile Die
MILE DIE
I highly hope you hang a mile
Breath
I highly hope you hang a mile
Still breathing

I’d highly like to watch you die
Standing red handed in quick sand up to your knees
You tore out from your mother a fistful of skeleton keys
Add one, add two, you’ll get there
Add it to the list of things I don’t require
(Strange without the wonder you are)
Faces under water, all porcelain and glossed
(Strange without the wonder you are)

Oh what a surprise, ware brings casualties
But not this close to bare white bones
It’s far too lose to home for comfort
And this is a very comfortable home

How foreign do you have to be for this to be ok?
(Strange without the wonder you are)
What colour do you have to be?
Silly question
(Strange without the wonder you are)

Monday mourners filter in
Transparent flags on turkey chins
We mustn’t look the other way, but we mustn’t let them in
This is my grievance with the grievers
Synthetic, sympathetic, so pathetic when you speak

I highly hope you hang a mile
I highly hope you hang a mile

I’d highly like to watch you die
I hope they just can’t treat your yellowed skin and darkness fills your eyes
And then infection sets in
Track Name: Head Boy Sonnet
HEAD BOY SONNET

Resting heart rate
Low enough
Set in every bone
Low enough and your hauled off by

Both your broken arms

Resting heart rate
Low enough
Set in every bone
Low enough to pull at teeth and drain you away

Pull the roots purge the plant of pests
Leach my sickness nestled in, never the less
I grow

Both your broken arms

I don’t feel sad at all
I look forward to meeting you and all your friends
I don’t feel sad at all
I’ve been implored into meeting you and all of your friends
And all the very best
The very best schools, and schools, and backgrounds, and cheques, and background checks
The sweaty underneath of the head boys neck
The trickle down effect
The necklace you parade so elegantly, effortly, delicately around said neck
The fact that you’re a speck atop a mound of shit about to be blitzed
You tried to mould the hole but the end didn’t fit
You tried to mould the hole but the end didn’t fit
You tried to mould the hole but the end didn’t fit
And now the tables have turned, you’re wearing dead mans shoes
Perfect fucking fit
Track Name: Empathy The Dog
What a life
There’s comfort in the middle
What price? A ticket to the edge
You’re so safe in here with us little boy
See all these pockets lining pockets they read ‘get out of jail’
This nose turned up like a broken nail
This house, so grandly shrouded in fog
Money is the mother
Empathy the dog

Everyday I pray for civil war
For that moment I can nail your fucking head to the floor
Is it clear now the air is thinning?
Is it clear that this is just the beginning of all these pockets lining pockets they read ‘get out of jail’?
The gargoyle leers through the virgin veil
This house, so grandly shrouded in fog
Money is the mother
Empathy the dog

Our blessings arrive in hiding
Hide so well so low to ground
Nothing left to be decided
Til you’re too dead, til you’re too dead

Everyday I pray for civil war
For that moment I can nail your fucking head to the floor
This house, so grandly shrouded in fog
Money is the mother
Track Name: Swinehound
Pants down swine hound
You don’t speak for me
Pants down swim hound
Hired company
Pants down swine hound
You don’t speak for me
Known by all

You don’t speak for me
You don’t speak for me
You don’t

Owned by doubt
Known by all
Track Name: Told You I Was Ill
TOLD YOU I WAS ILL

I’m fine, thanks for asking
No thief, no night
They came in together
They’ll go out the same way

I’m fine, thanks for asking
No thief, no night
Just in case my plane goes missing
Counting down I’m 15 minutes in

Hope round here
Coiling a rope round here
Track Name: Pilot Light
PILOT LIGHT

Pilot light, kill the power
Seal up the door on our darkest hour
Pilot light, kill the power
Seal up the door on our darkest hour
Take me higher
Numb me
Your pilot light stopped running
The slow decent turned into noise
10 minutes worded than fate
Why so slow?
Why so low?

So pick a date and hope for the best
For the willing and the wicked there is no rest
So come my child and fight for the cause
Your Jesus is coming, cue rapturous applause
A whole life’s worth is the cost to be saved
Harold Camping sleeps like a log in a solid gold grave
It’s the day after doomsday and all is said and done
I hope it’s all worth it
I hope you’re having fun
