Track Name: Dork Rock
Sunday in the Midlands, 1993
A shedding of a skin that was enveloping me
Time to get the weight off and time not to be
Still reeling in the fallout from Alien 3

I based myself on sleevenotes, I dressed from magazines
I did so many sit-ups I destroyed my knees
I said my name was 'Alex' and I'm eager to please
I want to be the city but I come from the trees

Sitting in the desert, I started to see
That nonthing really touches me like Alien 3
I'm giving up believing in the glorious me
I'm crashing on my parade in an E.E.V.

I wandered down the country, precariously
I found myself all on my own in Golders Green
And all of my poses could not help me
So I gave myself back over to Alien 3

Sitting in the desert, I started to see
That nonthing really touches me like Alien 3
I'm giving up believing in the glorious me
I'm crashing on my parade in an E.E.V.

O.K.
Dress Code:
White British Knight Hi-Tops
Blue skinny jeans
A grey hat
And a black logo T-shirt of
GHOSTBUSTERS II

Sitting in the desert, I started to see
That nonthing really touches me like Alien 3
I'm giving up believing in the glorious me
I'm crashing on my parade in an E.E.V.

All these moments will be lost in time like an idiot in a room with one door

Nexus 6! Nexus 7! Nexus 8! Nexus 9! Nexus 10! Go!

I want to be Ripley!
I want to be John McClane!
I want to be Snoopy!
I want to be Holtzmann, Jillian Holtzmann.
Track Name: Rejoinder
I lie upon my bed
And let you fill my head
You're course-correcting me
You are my energy

Oh woah

You turn me upside-down
You spin my world around
Whenever you're around
I hear that lonely sound

Oh woah

You wreck me
Connect me
I want to go where you go

Reject me
Collect me
I want to know what you know

Oh oh oh
There you go
Oh oh oh

This is my final word
On all that I have heard
You sing me through the night
You make it all alright

Oh woah

You wreck me
Connect me
I want to go where you go

Reject me
Collect me
I want to know what you know

Oh oh oh
There you go
Oh oh oh

What do you want from me, from me?
Who do you want me to be, to be?
How can I make you see, you see?
You are the end of me, of me

You wreck me
Connect me
I want to go where you go

Reject me
Collect me
I want to know what you know

Oh oh oh
There you go
Oh oh oh

You wreck me
Connect me
I want to go where you go

Reject me
Collect me
I want to know what you know

Oh oh oh
There you go
Oh oh oh
What d'you know?
Oh oh oh
Track Name: Building Bricks Build Back
Three twenty-somethings - one boy, two girls - meeting at old derelict pub in middle of city (opening is long zoom from space to pub). Former beer garden and car park is sand. Boy there first on phone. Overgrown on sand. High street. First floor is pretty. Shack has someone in. Weird flat head dog/sheep - little kid with biro head. Curiosity gets the best of them. They go in. It's nice. They chill. Pop out. Go back. SCARY. They leave. Boy forgot bag. Girl dropped keys with his address. He goes back. No shock reveals, but there is a scream. It continues. City sun, like Duel, but on foot.
Track Name: Wasp Salad
I saw it
It saw me
It flew right in to the back of the van

I sat down
It said "Hi,
I'll tell you something that you can't understand"

It flew by
All the shops
It said, "the sales are so good in this land"

It wore green
Paisley socks
It was the Queen of the bargain store wasps

Yellow stripe
Black stripe
Queen of the wasps
Yellow stripe
Black stripe
At reasonable costs
Yellow stripe
Black stripe
Queen of the wasps
Saddle bag
Knapsack
At reasonable costs

She said, "I
gotta go!"
I held her close and said, "oh baby, no!"

She said she'd
Work to do
Getting sixty children to fit in these shoes


Yellow stripe
Black stripe
Queen of the wasps
Yellow stripe

At reasonable costs
Yellow stripe
Black stripe
Queen of the wasps
Stiletto heel
Sheer feel
The Queen of the shops
Track Name: Respite
Black well, drown hole, water
Fish eye, footway, down
Rain grass, sat well, sort of
Dog weir, that way, town

The wind across the grass runs
The river to the end
And everything will be the same tomorrow

Slate grey, nine planes, over
Lights first, then sound, gone
Five lanes, hollow, no more
Church bells, train pass, done

The wind across the grass runs
The river to the end
And everything will be the same tomorrow
Track Name: Fist Meet Face
I come from nowhere
You sent me right back there
I come from nowhere
Still you cut me right out there

And give my friends their money
And give my friends their money

I come from nowhere
You've put me me right back there

Fight your own battles
You tore me right out there
I've got your number
You ripped me right off there

And give my friends their money
And give my friends their money

Say something funny
We'll cut you right off there
Track Name: Shirt
The meaning of shirt is social hurt
The meaning of skirt is social hurt
Track Name: Drama Dancing
I like you
I like the drama
I like you
I like the drama

Can't take us anywhere
Can't take us anywhere
Can't take us anywhere
Can't take us anywhere

I like you
I like the drama
I like you
I like the drama

Just drive
Just drive
Just drive
Just drive

Ah ah ah
Track Name: Rating Animals By Style
By the back wall
Above the skirting
Where the curtain
Bleeds the sun

A reminder
Of the battle
We couldn't lose
But we never won

Now there's nothing
But this marking
And confusion
What have we done?

You don't remember
I don't believe you
Another loss then
We've never won

Every time I go away
Animals just block my way

And as the curtain calls
I'm climbing up the walls
I'm rating animals
And as the curtain falls
I'm clawing at the walls
I'm rating animals by style

Is this all then?
Apartment broken
With a promise
But never fun

Lit by computer
I cannot help her
But I get the
Dishes done

There was a kid who
Tried to tell me
That the city
Would get it done

But he got older
And the lighting
And all his watches
Have ceased to run

Every time I go away
Animals just block the way

And as the curtain calls
I'm climbing up the walls
I'm rating animals
And as the curtain falls
I'm clawing at the walls
I'm rating animals
And as the curtain calls
I'm climbing up the walls
I'm rating animals
And as the curtain falls
I'm clawing at the walls
I'm rating animals by style

And in the end I
(Oh are you leaving?)
Made it past them
(Then take the ceiling)
Scrubbed the skirting
(Or take the window)
And now I'm gone
(Go on, run)

Lock the windows
(Cos I'm still breathing)
Pull the latches
(I'm still seeing)
Let the air out
(Animals here)
Panic done
(You're never done)
Track Name: Thank God
Thank God someone finally said it
Thank God it wasn't me
Thank God someone finally said it
Thank God it wasn't me

I'm the obvious

Thank God someone finally said it
Thank God it wasn't me

I'm the obvious
