Track Name: If God Exists
1/
How brutal is the chaos rained upon my heart I check my heart for stitches ‘cos this land has crossed my heart my heart’s not capable of love at all not love at all not love at all my heart it lives for hatred
Never once did I believe my land would savagely dictate negal in such a dying ghost of pain we sit here cold and broken.
Once upon a time my family lived for pride and now it lives for hatred

Chorus
If god exists then hell exists if hell exists it must be it
At least one thing I know is this at least I know god’s losing and
He cries and he cries it’s fucking murder

2/
How grateful as we see the night, to see the stars not clouds of phosphorus
Smoke that sting and hurt and burn our temples.
I can taste the hate upon my lips the wicked sprite has finally seduced me (as you watch on TV)
Dirty water flows right through our streets combined with blood and shit and piss
I saw my brother killed oh where’s the penance in his eyes
We’re on our knees we’re on our knees we pray for psalms we pray for psalms of
Mercy please and we cry and cry and cry.

Chorus
If god exists then hell exists if hell exists it must be it
At least one thing I know is this at least I know god’s losing and
He cries and he cries it’s fucking murder (they’ve shut the border) x 2

Middle 8 or so

The claimed this land they claimed this land they claimed it from the arabs etc

Chorus
If god exists then hell exists if hell exists it must be it
At least one thing I know is this at least I know god’s losing and
He cries and he cries it’s fucking murder (they’ve shut the border) x 2

The END
Track Name: Executing Elliott
1/ The trouble with a Wednesday it's keeps my heart in traction
I know I should’ve acted smoother
I was admiring the cut of her threads it was easy to do so.
So I feigned dissatisfaction my way of showing affection
And I regret I did it that way.
She walked out of the room with a grumble like complexion
My faux discontented sentiment was debris.

Chorus
…and If you don't mind I will keep you for myself x 3
Giddy giddy giddy up go at least I’ve got my heart is beating again.

2/So later on that evening I approached and made a signal
The moves of drunk young man
The thought was in the drink purchased quickly it seemed to do the trick shot and she downed it.
So with dignity restored I resigned myself to failure with a final smoke I left for the evening but the work was in the message and it's not my style to hang around

3/ when you’re gone! I will try! To be better in my own way
There was something in the weather that made her feel so Horney
Contrary to texts I knew that my efforts were futile.
Here I am presenting on my own yet again and my efforts between
The sheets were nothing spectacular
Things that seemed tangible now seem like globules of drivel
Track Name: Everything Beautiful Reminds Me Of You
1/
I walked away for the third or fourth or fifth time
I was on my way but you looked illumines
I kissed you on the cheek you kissed me on the lips
I said we shouldn't do this you said i don't care
So i took you upstairs and you showed me your best moves

Bridge
Everything beautiful reminds me of you
Everything beautiful it does
Everything beautiful reminds me of you
Everything beautiful it does

Chorus
Tonight we die but not like the others
Tonight we die but not like the others
Tonight we die but we die in beauty
Tonight we die but not like the others
Tonight we die but not like the others
Tonight we die but we die in beauty

Outro Bridge
Everything beautiful it does...

2/
So sick of this rancid routine all of got left are videos and pictures
on my mobile phone of you naked with me
It's not a funny thing to do when theres nothing left
on a sunday with a hangover i'm completly bereft of enjoyment and excitment.

Bridge
Everything beautiful reminds me of you
Everything beautiful it does
Everything beautiful reminds me of you
Everything beautiful it does

Chorus
Tonight we die but not like the others
Tonight we die but not like the others
Tonight we die but we die in beauty
Tonight we die but not like the others
Tonight we die but not like the others
Tonight we die but we die in beauty

Outro Bridge
Everything beautiful it does...

Middle 8 and outro
Tonight we die but not like the others
Tonight we die but not like the others
Tonight we die but we die in beauty
Tonight we die but not like the others
Tonight we die but not like the others
Tonight we die but we die in beauty
Tonight we die but not like the others
Tonight we die but not like the others
Tonight we die but we die in beauty
Tonight we die but not like the others
Tonight we die but not like the others
Tonight we die but we die in beauty
Track Name: I Miss You Cos It's Monday
I miss you cos it’s Monday and if it were Monday everyday I think I’d kill myself gun to the head. God give me, give me some nature red in tooth and harsh in claw my heartbroken soul retracts to the words of my favourite flaws
I bet she don’t miss me
I bet she don’t miss me
I bet she don’t miss me
I bet she don’t miss me at all
I miss you like the apples miss the trees as they’re falling to their knees past the soggy little leaves it’s where my heart resides. A love that’s so solid yet unwrapped in confusion I might tell you something I regret. I read books you know.
She wears combat trousers in the summer time she smokes old fashioned pipes to the kids we designed and every time I see a flower grow I’ll pick it for the seed and plant it in your heart from me. I said you you Mrs Jones you never did it for me did you now Mrs Jones you’re not a man of your word not the king of my heart and I love you all the same but I can’t stand your art.
And if I was ten years younger I’d take you on a date I’d take you out to the pier and we’d sing regal arrangements to the sounds of the sea and I’d kiss you goodnight as you lay next to me.
Track Name: The Terrorist
I wonder past this sight with indifference. We talked twelve miles an hour by the side of the road. Me and my conscience listened pensively to the words of a different breed I wonder by with starry eyes a shadow of my former dome and.
She looks at me and kisses softly
If love exists this must be it see
She stands and walks straight through the door I wanted her I wanted her
All I want to say is I need you
In every single way I don’t need
Believe me when I say you don’t need me
Believe me when I say you touched me in someway.
Every time I look in the mirror, I wonder why my hair is this colour. Surely this just caused a riff that made her fall so someone’s lips I wanna be alone and drink alone and smoke alone. I wanna hang myself from the rafters, my anviled heart crushed like a crisp beneath my shoes from bended hips. I wanna go home wanna go home wanna home I wanna go home wanna go home wanna go home.
She stands and walks straight for the door I never want you anymore. Who is that I used to be I never loved you anyway believe me when I say you can’t carry on that way.
Track Name: Boozehounds
This is the song for the 4am alcoholics with a beer and beard and an extra couple of pounds in weight we’ll call it comfort drinking. Oh the final dance of the bedroom poet she’s not worth it and you’ll find out that eventually stop writing about dying she’s not gonna appreciate your heroics and you’re gonna be pissed off when you see her parading around town with her latest victim on arm oh so gutted oh so gutted.
Cries into his plastic cup, writes down a thought or 2 says I need her in my life where’d you get to be so bloody cruel
We go one way two ways forwards and back to the start I’ll meet you in the shed my friend we’ll drink ourselves to oblivion that’s what broken men do time and time again my dear. By the way you broke my good friends heart how could you because he needs you.
And she thinks she’s really fucking smart cos she’s reading bloody Roland barthes I bet she doesn’t even understand a word he’s saying anyway and by the way stop writing aboutyour broken heart because it was detuned right from the start oh booze is the cure for my good friends heart and tonight he’s drowning.
And he thinks she’s dressed up like a tart for her new man oh where’s her heart he doesn’t need her anymore so he pours himself a double scotch thinks of England and the boys at work cos the one thing they can never touch is our football cos they’ve never cried over an England match oh never fuck em and he thinks that she’s a bloody whore but everday he misse4s her a little more he wants to go back 4 months before of the last time that she said I love you.
Track Name: whistling ukulele indie folk pop - Then She Kissed Me
1/
Sweetness it was just a joy that I repel.
To makes waves of a situation that turned out perfectly.
We spent a day together yeah no chance of romance but things turned out perfectly she said.

Chrous
And we all gathered round…then she kissed.
(Whistling)

2/
So we smoked cigarettes and we talked about Caligula retiring to the bedroom I smiled as I looked at her.
She beckoned me a little closer I felt like I cared
The smell of her breath was just like Mayfair smooth’s.

Chorus
Then she kissed me.
(Whistling)
Track Name: Forgive Us We're British
1/
I need to get by now
I need to believe in
Now let’s not get angry when talking bout friends and ghosts oh
So shy and retiring
But beautiful with it
I'll love my darling on and on and on and on and on and on
Oh

Chorus

Everyday my life
Everyday my life croaks
I'm sorry my darling you know I don't mean it.
I know you know me better than most
I sorry my darling you know I don't mean it
My heart is fictitious
Forgive us we're British

2/
It's so bloody fraught yeah
To peak as your looks change
Spending my whole life just drowned in a mirth of extravagant miazmeral pain
It's all about power, mendacious with vigour
A continual move towards keeping an eye on the weaker than thy and then keeping them down whilst pushing yourself

Chorus

Bridge
Everyday I x 6

3/
My heart is an ocean
That limps like the injured
Our leaders kills children in foreign lands smiling at home they
Complain of the rain.
Can you not see the joke there?
This state it disgusts me
Ideas of honour perverted to fit an ideal that is dated, the empire continues to flourish believe me.


Chorus
Repeat bridge
