wrapped in cling film staying till the morning working in a shop of new bond street, lived in your building high up on the ceiling when she rushed the floorboards creaked // out in this town haunting again your calling up my friends, trying to find out where I've been I'm a holdng holding again, gave money to the man he put a bag in hand, said don't you understand, this isn't the way out this is the way in, ya doubling ya troubling // chorus: well he's 300 300 and 68 x 3 ml down // where come from where you at jack is it ya clothes the bullet holes or the shit up ya nose, that makes your body contort like that, like a denmark st thief feeding the crack, the clap applauds the phahore, for the fractured jaw that was given to a government tax, way back then when maggie aggie aggie, always made him sad but she never made him happy, I was lost weak bleak in the street, knocked me off of my feet, hanging round with the people I should never meet, I always believed that the air that we breathed would choke our lungs and clog up our arteries now down on my knees saying up for a please, take him down throw him out and then you call the police, now I'm out there sitting in the gutter, rolling back down before you come upper // chorus // verse 2: while the nameless were swapping infections, ketamine jim he had a spin went mad and got sectioned, I was outside trying to shot gun a ride off a guy who like I has no sense of direction, tension is building in the white heart pub, by the time we drove by the floor's covered in blood, man next to me said they're all fucking mugs used to roll with them cunts before I fell in love with a brunette roughneck fits like a glove, kept me back down when I came back up, when my feet hit the ground man I started to run, and since that day thats all that I done, so if you ever see me when the town falls down, jester starts screamings as he steals the queens crown, well you'll know that they'll be lost and that I'll be found, because I'm300 and 68 down // chorus // bridge: it's the only way that you're getting out, if you hang around boys round here they'll bring you down x 2 // chorus
I own earth wind and fire, it breeds the hunger that keeps me on the road again.

Hocus Pocus
bullets flying over head hear them through the walls as you lie in bed, know you're fighting for the one you love, but this time son I'm telling you to run // lost myself in things I shouldn't do, came 2 years later without you, the things I've done and the things I've seen, I've been so wrong to so many the team is all looking like they're all past up and awat disowned from their homes and their families, well I can't see myself in the dream, the dream I saw was all around me got // chorus: hocus pocus three men jokers, barristers beast policemen thieves, three queens and broken dreams, a bottle full of trouble and a gambling fiend // verse 2: well the jokers looking over as he pulling an ace, the malitia take cover under my staircase, witches in the kitchen bitching and itching, while two old school friends haunt the hall ways, the host proposed a toast all of the ghost, and the ones that loved us the hearts we broke say, I'll never make that promise again once was enough all around me got // chorus // verse 3: as I came to I looked for you in the cupboards and the drawers, and the toilet queue, asked the medicine man if he heard any news, he told me I'd thrown you out last june, grabbed the politician by the neck threatened to use, fists in a fight to find out the truth, he said you set the scene son everyday, you can't blame the dammed for your own mistakes, while the mason he was pacing in my living room, emme had a child growing up in the womb, I said I'm staying in I never felt like I left, my last breath was taken in conjunction with // chorus

Emily's heart
a bottle of wine and old 45's, a rifle in the corner that her grandfather left her when he died, said no surprise I've had to use it quite a few times so jay don't you ever, let us down don't you ever I'll have to shoot you down and no one will hear a sound // chorus: bruised and bloodied, I'm lying on the ground, I am aware that I let the poor girl down, and now I'm dying as a message to the town, this is what happends if you fuck her around, and meddle if you want trouble if you want trouble then you should meddle, but don't ever meddle with Emily's heart // verse 2: she said get your coat come on, to the dog track with a money wrap, yeah we had some fun, left with more cos we won, I was under investigations on suspicions of doing her wrong she said, you've become a villain accused of a hit and run, said she hit me first and I say it's the worst that I ever felt in a broken heart, so with blood stains on a shirt crease of she pays the due, and when I left she said that your last breath will be down by the station at 2, so she shot me down // chorus // as she said I'm user and she's a loser with a gun, I said if you choose to it becomes hard to include anyone, so if you stay would you put it away or should I run, she said I think you know the answer to your question, so for the smiles and all of the miles the engines done, the further I drive away the closer we become, so if I stay would you put it away and forgive just one son, she said jay I think you know the answer to ya question // chorus

Spider's Web
they think wére fools sitting on the corner, older you get the more like your father the more I drink the more like my brother. seem to have picked up on a callus trait, hate people who think there life is a drama, making in jokes about americana, amusing myself is worth it for the karma, obama sounds like osama to me // well my bedroom's watched by an intafada, kids with bricks on strips in gaza point at me in my pyjamas, laugh and scream get out of bed. I say I am I got plans I'm meeting up with martha. I'm a shoulder she's robert palma acts like a twat but she's a top banana, might as well admit she's addicted to love // caught up in a spider's web, it's not the first time playing dead, they know something oh well we're running, I know they'll catch up in the end // verse 2: you walked in last with a dirty barbour found me at the bad in fits of laughter, said you've been seen out digging the past with arthur you'd rather, just walk in the rain at a party with ash as they smash a pinata, can i leave some stuff here for you to look after, I'll be back around probably in the mid summer new york new york man i love the city // chorus // bridge: and in the hustle and the bustle I feel I'm in trouble, and I trip and then I stumble I feel myself fall in the hustle and bustle, it's too rough I tumble in the gravel and the rubble can your me call x 2 // well with a wheezing chest and a leaking ceiling, baby next door screaming all evening, the beatings we got and the ones we're seeking we're stubborn as fuck and I'm proud to say that me and ben skeleton mixed our own medicine, never let a critic affect our direction, barricade doors with a pale complexion, program a beat bones I'll just keep telling them how selling them a brand is a band complication a man in a room with a survey for the station, trying to get it on air no care for creation I guess it's all part of indoctrination // bridge // chorus // bridge//
