Willy Why 04:09
I’m the blood that clots your coffee The jelly in your eye I’m the hair you’re keeping hidden The stitch you’d rather hide I’m the heat in sober hours The tense and tiny tide That washes up on beaches The claims you can’t deny Call me Willy Why I’m the kiss and the cancer The cause and the crime The itch that you find so sublime Call me Willy Why (repeat)

Up in the high leaves he spies a primal scene Wet wood and soggy, in the trees he can scream God in a bird box surveys his territory The all-seeing eye can't believe what he sees He spends his time up in the branches Laughing at the people below Sees the world and all of its chances But he won’t let go His royal highness betrays his dignity Kingdom comes in the oak break the cradle in three God in a bird box surveys his territory The all-seeing eye can't believe what he sees He spends his time up in the branches Laughing at the people below Sees the world and all of its chances But he won’t let go Up in the branches your long back arches Up in the branches he’s swift with his chances

It's better than clever Your life is an outline that's barely complete You measure your pleasure In supplement inches new rule for the weak I'm living half-price in paradise It's cheap at the till return and refill I'm living half-price in paradise It's cheap at the till excess is a thrill Your moments are golden You live in a bubble of glossy mystique Your décor reflector You sleep in the rubble of second-hand chic I'm living half-price in paradise It's cheap at the till return and refill I'm living half-price in paradise Excess is a thrill return and refill

Black Brick 04:53
I don’t do truth I don’t do lies I would But never really try I take what’s not wanted And then ask for favours Make plans for the future Then leave them for later I eat till I’m empty Then throw up the day Then eat it again When I kneel down to pray I don’t see you I don’t see them I never read right to the end I come to conclusions I come much too fast I leak in a bottle Then drink to the past I think in the shade Coz I’m not much a reader I sleep in the deep Coz I’m a believer

You’re so pretty Pretty when you smile But, if I’m honest, I prefer it when you cry Past pages prove Bad blood brews Pick it it’s ready it’s ripe Love loves to fight You’re so pretty Pretty when you smile But, when I’m on it, I prefer it when you cry Half hearted rules Love boils through Till only the moments remains Love loves pain

Grease Madonna Cooking up kiddie skin rind Slow roast turning The skivies got gas and he fries Temper temper The acid burn cough of your life Burst and bubble You’re spitting and dripping tonight Slow car burning The flames in the mirror they glow Family treasure Buried by the side of the road Petrol kettle Your kith and kin are being boiled blind Meat don’t matter Lets microwave in metal on high

21 hours from the grave 21 hours from the grave He was only 5 years old And his life had just been sold 21 hours from the grave Have-a-go hero on the train Have-a-go hero on the train She was frightened for her life, He got stabbed up with a knife Have-a-go hero on the train Preying on the aged and the grey Preying on the aged and the grey He snapped and did the hag, Separates her out in bags Preying on the aged and the grey Seeking your asylum on the waves Seeking your asylum on the waves They seal them up airtight, Forty days and forty nights Seeking your asylum on the waves
