Track Name: Downside
Downside
--------------
Its so quiet, and your heads not got a clue
little thoughts and memories
come flooding back to you

Its the downside to the upside
feel like just lying undercover and letting
life just pass me by

Where does our pain where does the
anger come from
doesnt really exist any other time
but when you let euphoria just guide you
its going to let your life slide past
slide past sometimes

Its the downside to the upside
i feel like lying undercover and letting
life just pass me by
its the downside to the upside

Its a place of peace a place where
you cant get a grip
feet fall out from under you
your not sure if your standing straight up
or at a slant you just cant tell
because the worlds moving in a different
direction now

Its the downside to the upside
feel like lying undercover and letting
life just pass me by
its the downside to the upside
Track Name: Explosion
Explosion

Grab the sides and dont start bleeting
this same stories getting old
check your notes from the last time greeting
this lame pups not getting sold

you cant break this wall
which you built up yourself
when the sweat it starts bleeding
there is no call for help
with the head without pulses beating
dropping of the stealth
laugh out loud LOL to release the load

Im gonna explode

theres been counting heads to feet
you've been left jumping well off the beat
anger mistrust it comes easy
when your heads away on the trail
fuming signs and redraft lines
of where its safe to meet
thermostat dies and the bulging eyes
vultures wait to feast

Im gonna explode
Track Name: Squidger and Rory Tosh (texttosh) - Down in Dalcapon - With Texttosh on slide guitar
Down in Dalcapon
--------------------------
At the crossroads you hang a left
turning the wheel into second shift
take your foot of the pedal
your admittance into the land the land before heaven
your survival depends on it
so slow down

the farmer stands 6ft tall to
stop you in your tour
stay in line and you'll be fine
just beware you have crossed the
Tulliemet border line
into Dalcapon land

Pull up a pew
grab a can
welcome to Dalcapon land
drop all your toys
dont act too weird
it may be rich coming
from those fields of the towns lights
you see in the gloom

where the holidays start to bloom
this jealousy raining down
Dalcapon

Down in Dalcapon land where a bird in the sack
is worth two in the hand
down in Dalcapon land
where whiskey is freeflowing
if you dont take a drink drink it up
dont fall but you must stand

down in Dalcapon
Track Name: Lazy auld town
Lazy auld town
-------------------

The bus leaves town in
20 minutes time
but your looking at signs
that pointing all over the place
somebody should have got round to
changing them for you

even dogs got up in the sun
they got up and ran away
to the nearest nearest place where they get
their, theres dust all around
and then in which welcome off to
the horrible sound of this lazy lazy
lazy lazy auld town

its a lazy, lazy auld town

The stuffs defrosted a decade ago
all the tins at the supermarket where out of
date when king george was monarch

about the power but its a
lazy lazy auld town
its a lazy lazy god forsaken auld town

wish that bus would appear
im gonna jump on and dissapear
not see this lazy lazy lazy auld town
anymore
Track Name: Squidger and Vlad Josephson - Tears are not enough - With Vlad Josephson
Tears are not enough

they drip down my fretboard
plop at my feet
making the strings rusty
still aint got what i need

been searching for the sound to equate
the beats and the right ways to relate
its not coming off no matter which tuning is used
cant get this sorted the everlasting heartache

Tears are not enough
to make it through
tears are not enough
you gotta work a little harder
to find the way back to you

grab a post to get a feeling of where you are
its been so surreal, life in this heavy harr
legs been leading but deceiving in walking rate
cant get this sorted this everlasting heartache

Tears are not enough
to make it through
tears are not enough
you gotta work a little harder
to find the way back to you
tears are not enough
to make it through
tears are not enough
to forget about you
tears are not enough

they still drop down my fretboard
and plop at my feet
Track Name: Looking Good - With Sierra Johnson (alwaysfallingonmyface)
looking good
-----------------------
bouncing happy on these new pumps of mine
these new threads are sparkiling on which the sun shines
proud to be walking head right in the sky
its a shame cause this swish new haircut is hidden from others eyes

cause your looking good
felling like you always should
oooh some retail therapy
wish this little devil on my shoulder
would tell me nothing comes for free

my nails their perfect along
i've got about sixteen bags
it was a half sale
oh baby dont be shy i know your looking at me
this is my day to shine
dont be jealous honey because you cant hold
it like i do
retail therapy

Cause your looking good
feeling like you always should
looking good
Oooh some retail therapy
wish this little devil on my shoulder
would tell me nothing comes for free

the month ends, you wonder where all the moneys gone
you got the best of the best and you're still alone
it was a glorious set of reasons to spend more than you own
in the end its all worthless except your day on the throne
cause your looking good
feeling like you always should
cause your looking good
Oooh some retail therapy
wish this little devil on my shoulder
would tell me nothing comes for free
Track Name: Tonight
Tonight
------------

Not for the first time and in the light of day
as sobriety turns pictures from solid grey
stomping up and down on egg shells
kicking black cats
i see you creep in smiling from the back

Tonight
tonight you make the sun grow longer
tonight
tonight you make the sun grow stronger
and darkness turns to day in my heart

To sleep per chance to dream
of someone new
a million blank face always turn back into you
subdueing infatuation
try to leave you to oneside
once again she appears
this nights future bride

Tonight
tonight you make the sun grow longer
tonight
tonight you make the sun grow stronger
and darkness turns to day in my heart
Track Name: Secrets
Secrets

Sticks and stones may break my bones
and glass homes may fall

the taunts the names the kicking
games
are no fun at all

killing his spirit
inward he falls

its ok to feel the pain
drop the act and be free sgain
outward emotion frees
your debts
shows your best
dont keep your secrets

He crawls out, stands up
on his own

wipes off the spit and mends
the scars down to the bone,

lets out a tear without a fear
his cover his cover is blown

its ok to feel the pain
drop the act and be free sgain
outward emotion frees
your debts
shows your best
dont keep your secrets
from yourself or anyone else
Track Name: Colours
Colours
----------

Beginning of the week i'm tired
from the night before
been some weekend
just seeing friends and doing chores

feel a little melancholy
heads kind of queer
found something that i kind of wanted
where did it all go wrong

we talked the night away
and walked into the bright lights
the limelight
a different colour grey

and the colours keep on coming my way
the colours keep coming my way
they are blowing glowing
affect my hysterical mind

a different week i kinda woke up
forgot my love and my buttercup
on the fridge now it seems empty
could have sworn had little
pizza in the refridgerator
refridgerators empty again
its getting kind of late i'm getting shamed

Pit stop the colours keep clouding my mind
raping my judgement
taking me into a different time
because its not easy
and the colours keep on coming my way
the colours keep coming my way
they are blowing glowing
affect my hysterical mind
Track Name: Jumble sale
Jumble sale
--------------

Box up your trinkets your old scabby blankets
the old vhs too
bring all the breakage and love given braceletts
that were thrown back at you
empty the drawers wipe clean all the floors
bring the unused rail
because were going to the jumble sale

set up your stall a free for all but a pound
take it or leave it but dont keep on stealing out loud
the junk from a lifetime
let the healing begin
because were going to the jumble sale

all on the table the lump and the cradle
the cave you been living in
dont be shyed by the ill gotten prize
of objects glittering
dont throw it away but sell it today
and hope that your ship has come in

a pound, no i cant sell you that
for ten years its been kicking round
and round my flat
but its a sale how about this half
broken cat

its the jumble sale
Track Name: Ripping of souls
Ripping of Souls
--------------------
Didnt see you taking this hard
dropping off and facing it
tears dripping from the reset
it wasnt possible to predict
seemed ok until recently
when you said we no longer fit

lost all shaking and making no sense of it all
raking and searching for the old signs of the fall
retreiving disbelieving whimpering to your feet i crawl

Its the ripping of souls as we drift apart
its the ripping of souls that bludgeons and rips
and tears and kicks at the heart

Sitting waiting upon the call
that never comes
read too much into all that you say
feeding of the crumbs
can this go on indefinitely
is it time to turn and run

lost all shaking and making no sense of it all
raking and searching for all the old signs of the fall
retreiving disbelieving whimpering to your feet i crawl

Its the ripping of souls as we drift apart
its the ripping of souls that bludgeons and rips
and tears and kicks at the heart
Track Name: Sexy Beast
Sexy beast
-------------

20 stone man walking around
with nothing on
belly flopping out
lying on the beach like a whale
out of his comfort zone

you see the sun has got to him
and his swim suit ready goes splashing
leaves no water left in the pool around him

he grabs a beer makes a swear and

i'm a sexy beast
swears at his kids
swears at his wife
swears at the dog in the heat
and has stinky feet
cause he's a sexy beast
he's a sexy beats

he's about 20 stone and red like lobster
he's been lying out in the sun in all day
looks like a gangster in a leathery kind of way
then he grabs a beer from the fridge
swears a couple more times lights a tab
and swings his hips and swears again

He's a sexy beast
he's a sexy beast this man
aint ever seen anything like him around town
he's got family that are running scared
he's got hair like he should be in a weird porno film
but he's a sexy beast
he's a sexy sexy sexy beast

he's red like a lobster
his skins like leather
he's been lying out in the sun all day

he's gonna back come back to
someday with those tattoos that look so
confused with all the sun he's been getting

oh, he's such a sexy beast the sexiest man i've ever seen
sexy man beast.
Track Name: Alone again
Alone again
-------------------
If these walls could talk
they'd sell the madness in my eyes
if this mirror could walk
it would get up in boredom
and leave me behind
with the thread bare carpet
over which is paced
the worn F7 is jiggling
from pressing just in case

On the bottle depend
in heavy air its your only friend
looks like your on your own again

is this a familiar problem
that turns day into night
in silence when you stop and wait
creaking doors give you a fright
forget the need to take a feed
stomach chains that bite
drop it all ignore the calls
give up the will to fight

On the Bottle depend
in heavy air its your only friend
looks like your on your own again

what can you do
roll up take a ticket
there's the queue
sit back your on your own again

On the Bottle depend
in heavy air its your only friend
looks like your on your own again

what can you do
roll up take a ticket
there's the queue
so get in line

on your own again
Track Name: Turn to Sand
Turn to sand
----------------
its all going well
buiilding on wishing wells
and paving away

skipping over holes, up all hours
excitement enthusiasm grows
surrounds

just one sip to help you on your way
just another nip to help finish off the day

Then it all turns to sand
slipping through your hand
an hourglass with no way of turning it upside
down again

once your done mucking around
semblence, interest, and
reason to be proud again
announce proclaim that your perfectly sane
starting

Just one sip to help you on your way
just another nip to help finish the day

Then it all turns to sand
slipping through your hand
an hourglass with no way of turning it upside
down again
