Track Name: Heaven Alive
Oh how it cut me up
I caught my mother crying
Into a muslin cloth
And I thought I'd died
I went to heaven alive

Cold and tied in knots
Cannot sleep for dreaming
Hope I'll wake up lost
As I thought I'd died
I went to heaven alive
I thought I'd died
I went to heaven alive
Track Name: Cum Summer
Sweeter than a tangerine
Swinging on my favourite tree
Dip your nipples in Vaseline
As I've broke your skin with my teeth

Peel me now and come inside me
Sip my juice until I'm dry please
I'm not the apple that was tempting to Eve
Will the snake still smile for me?

Taste me with you tongue and shed your skin
Slither down my middle from my chin
Leave nothing left for later don't sleep
Will your snake still smile for me?

Tighter than a tambourine
Shaking like a wizard's sleeve
Coat your nipples in plasticine
As I broke your skin with my teeth

Taste me with you tongue and shed your skin
Slither down my middle from my chin
Leave nothing left for later don't sleep
Will your snake still smile for me?
Track Name: My Sunday
It's Sunday
And tears splash on your grave
By Monday
The dope arrives I'm saved
And I'm back in the fog feeling nothing at all
Back in the mist feeling lazy and shit
Friday
The residual pain kicks in

It's Sunday And everybody's high at my place
By Monday
The citalopram kicks in I'm safe
And I'm back in the fog feeling nothing at all
Back in the mist feeling lazy and shit
By Friday
The residual pain kicks in

If I knew any better
I wouldn't follow you through Delamere
I saw the smack and the leather
I lost a lot of you that I never knew

My Sunday
Didn't know any better
And if I knew any better
I wouldn't follow you through Delamere
Track Name: Turn Your Words Around
Ludlow, let me in
From Piano's to Max Fish
I'll shake my fear
Lower East Side leave me be
From the Rivington to Arlene's
I still don't feel right

Mary-Lou Lord
Turn your car around

Take a cab to Brooklyn quick
Find my way back to North Six
I'll shake my fear
Dear Lewis, let me in
Freezing breath and my shirt is thin
And I still don't feel right

Mary-Lou Lord
Turn your car around
Lanaiah
Turn your words around
Lanaiah
Track Name: Colic
Douse your coat in daddy's petrol
I'll be waiting with mother's matches
Mumbled rumours of pleasure and violence
Like poetry
Like music to me

Drown your clothes in Derek's diesel
I'll be waiting with Sylvia's lighter
Old wives tale of pleasure and violence
Like poetry
Like music to me

And we all sing from the same hymn sheet
Track Name: Smothered In Gold
Although the beat was wrong
And the weed too strong
I still drag myself there
Don't know anyone here
And the liquor's so dear
That I can't take you home

And cover you in my nanny's coat
The one that nanna used to wear the most
Smother you in my mother's gold
And only leave when my body's cold

Just me and the mirror
So cold but don't shiver
I cannot feel my throat
As the room gets lighter
My eyes grow tired
As I pull over my cover

Cover me in my nanny's coat
The one that nanna used to wear the most
Smother me in my mother's gold
And only leave when my body's cold
Track Name: Dirty Letter
Black pen, dirty letters
Scrawl out my name
Wrapped in magpie feathers
But I don't feel that way
And you told me you'd forgiven me for everything
And you said that you'd forgiven me for everything

A broken promise
A cracked bone
A dirty letter
A filthy home

Dead pen, leather feathers
Drowned in piss and gold
Very end of my tether
But never needed you more
And you said that you'd forgiven me for everything
And you told me you'd forgiven me for everything

A broken promise
A cracked bone
A dirty letter
A filthy home
Track Name: My Amsterdam
Where is the dope man?
I could have been to Amsterdam
And smoked myself to death
The time that you've taken
I've channelled inner Satan
Now I want your blood
To spill on the table like Belmont in April
Know the roads, they may flood
But this won't mean anything
And I'll forget everything
As soon as you show up

Where is the dope man?
I could have been to Amsterdam
And smoked myself to death
You text me I'm shaking
You said your teeth are aching
And you've made your way back home
Well unless you want fake ones
I suggest you get a wriggle on
Or answer your god damn phone
But this won't mean anything
And I'll forget everything
As soon as we light up
Track Name: Tie It to You
Pass me the loop
So I can tie it to you
It's more like a noose
As I push you from your chair
So that I can watch you die
As you see me leave the room
I can hear you try
To chew right through the loop

Pass me the glue
So I can apply it to you
Let's wriggle you loose
Untangle every hair
So that I can lay you down
Bang in the middle of your favourite room
I will leave you dry
No one will ever have a clue

The room grows cold
Slowly the tendons they snap in your throat
The memory slips so slow
You ended in violence
Now where's my coat?

Pass me the loop
So I can tie it to you
Track Name: Turn Your Pictures Around
As the lights go down
Inside your house
You open your door
Turn your pictures around
We'll both lay down
On the filthy floor
We can talk it out
I won't let you down anymore

Scrolling through numbers in my old phone
Looking at pictures you don't know I own
Sniffing the knickers you ripped when you pushed me off
Spinning around in the town I was born
Forever in debt for your wisdom and love
But never been, ever been, forever been so lost

Scrolling through numbers in my old phone
Looking at pictures you don't know I own
Stitching the britches you ripped when you pulled them off
Spinning around in the town I was born
Forever in debt for your wisdom and love But never
been, ever been, forever been so lost
