Track Name: Willy Why
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)
Track Name: God in a Bird Box
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
Track Name: Half Price Paradise
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
Track Name: Black Brick
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
Track Name: You're So Pretty (BC Version)
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
Track Name: Grease Madonna
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
Track Name: 21 Hours from the Grave
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
