Track Name: Intro
i've burned all my bridges
and i've packed all my bags.
i'm gonna walk this lonely road
and see how long it lasts

the things i think about
shake me to the core well
i wont be thinking about
those things much anymore
Track Name: I'll Swim With The Sharks
oh i'm feeling down again
i'm not sure what it was but when
i saw you and you saw me
and we both knew it couldn't be

oh i'm feeling quiet and small
and we were driftwood in the ocean
i won't take much time at all
my feelings do deceive me yes they do

hold me close
even though you're a stranger
the dark cast upon your landscape by the sun
is awfully familiar
it always scared me how you and i
we fit like a glove
and there's no point at all to anything
when you're not in love

oh i'm feeling wild again
and i'm a deer and you're a lion
all i want is to be friends
i'm lying through my teeth now
yes i do

and i'm still trying to find myself
and i am fumbling always falling
trying to explore my mind
but everything i find is disappointing

hold me close
even though you're a stranger
the dark cast upon your landscape by the sun
is awfully familiar
it always scared me how you and i
we fit like a glove
and there's no point at all to anything
when you're not in love

i'm just trying to not give up
i'm just keeping my head up
Track Name: Excuse Me Could You Spare A Cigarette
excuse me could you spare a cigarette?
i hate to ask but i'm all out
the doctor says i shouldn't have them
but i don't know what that's all about

excuse me could you spare a cigarette?
or even just a drag, my dear
i'll spot you back next time i see you 'round
i just need to get out of here

and i don't like
how things have changed
cos the things that i hated about you
are still the same
oh lord please help me now

excuse me could you spare a cigarette?
i know you're an old friend my dear
please pull the trigger on me baby
and get me up out of here

excuse me could you spare a cigarette?
with tears running down your cheeks
i hope that you know you have killed me
or at least left me battered and weak

and i don't like
how things have changed
cos the things that i hated about you
are still the same
oh lord please help me now
Track Name: When I Think About You My Hands Shake
i lie
cold in your arms
in the silent knowledge
that there’s nothing to say
so let’s die
slowly together
with you, i'll be glad
to fade away

i often wonder
through the park
on my way
to your door
how i wish now
just to wonder
through the park
once more

how i remember
the suns sweet rays and how
important i felt
that i felt to you
how i crave and miss
those days
how we talked
and talked of seeing it through

and now
i lie cold
in your arms
once more
in the
silent knowledge
that there’s
nothing to say

so let’s die
slowly together
with you
i'll be glad to
fade away
Track Name: Gentleman Jim
i see the man you were
the man you used to be
how you throw your weight around
well you're scary now
but you don't scare me

all my friends are high on drugs
and i've had enough
i hate the world and it makes me cry
you hurt me so when you give me those eyes

and i am sick and tired
of looking over my back
is there poison in my water
i often have to check
you wear me thin
you gentleman jim
with picket fences in my mind
and lies in my heart

all my friends are high on drugs
and i've had enough
i hate the world and it makes me cry
you hurt me so when you give me those eyes

the loser dies on the floor and the winner dies in the ambulance

all my friends are high on drugs
and i've had enough
i hate the world and it makes me cry
you hurt me so when you give me those eyes
Track Name: Our Local Cliff
i promised to hold you
as our garden blooms evermore
through the wind and rain we walked
whatever life has in store
but your eyes aren’t the eyes
i fell in love with anymore

i’m holding on
but you’re tearing my walls down
and you’re sinking the ship that we’re sailing in
at least together we will drown
but i still see you
and my vision is letting me down

how do you fall out of love?

i will look after you
wherever you may be
but as I grow tired now
who will look after me?
and i’m sore and i'm tired
and i’m yearning for your touch
and i’m yearning for
the photos we enjoyed so much

every now and then
i see who it is I love
and it hurts me like a cutting knife
and our paths run red with blood
cos i’m holding you
but is it you
that i’m holding now
and i’m needing you
to not need me somehow

how do you fall out of love?
Track Name: Lizard In A Suit
i lie here
bad thoughts in my head
often i think i won't be happy
until the day i am dead
i wish i'd never listened
to a single word you have said
but here i am, unhappy
the future is what i dread
Track Name: I Know Who My Real Friends Are
pick on me
it’ll make you feel better bout you
and i don’t mind
i’d pick on me too if i were you
no its okay if we never hang out
don’t even ask me bout it
i wouldn’t understand anyway

leave me be
cos i know that you don’t want me
to speak my mind
and i'd prefer ur silence to concern
of any kind
i'm fine
you wouldn’t understand anyway

no one really cares about me
oh how i wish that they would just
leave me be
no one loves me
like you do
you’re the only one who’ll
get me through

can’t you see
that you’re not the person you should be
but oh i spose it's all the same to me

oh i hate
how the music you like
is the music that i also like
the sounds all twist and
turn around into you
and i hate how you let them
poison you
but sheep sip their poison cos
we wouldn’t understand anyway

i can’t wait to see them off
never give it a second thought
i just want to be alone
safe and sound all in my home
away from all your boring words
and chemicals that make you worse

can’t you see
that you’re not the person you should be
and you mean so little to me
but oh i spose it's all the same to me

over you
Track Name: Happy Birthday
another year
well i've seen it all before too many times
i often feel
like i've missed out oh haven't i

and i feel
so alone and cold
and i feel
so afraid
i'm still so young
happy birthday to me
happy birthday
oh happy birthday

holding on
i often forget what im looking for
keep me warm
keep me warm as i decay

and i feel
so alone and cold
and i feel
so afraid
i'm still so young
happy birthday to me
happy birthday
oh happy birthday

i see myself
i know you're there but you don't scare me
what the people say
does anyone love me at all?
what am i to you?
how many of you even know my name?
can you stand me
like i can't stand me

that's what it's all about anyway
i need to let go if my selfish ways
you give me strength
you're the only left with any faith

i feel
so alone and cold
and i feel
so afraid
i'm still so young
happy birthday to me
happy birthday
oh happy birthday
