Track Name: Couples
Couples

You close your eyes and hold your breath; I know right now I’m out of my depth
Can’t give you what you want from me, try cutting me I will not bleed

So why? You have a nice life
I’m sorry there’s something missing; I can’t save you from yourself

Be the sunlight in your darker days
All the comfort when you’re numb
Is there anything more sickening than couples in love, couples in love?

A séance at the kitchen sink, has resurrected memories
Of scenes I thought I’d locked away, all the mistakes I ever made.

So why? You have a nice life
I’m sorry there’s someone missing; I can’t save you from yourself

Be the sunlight in your darker days
All the comfort when you’re numb
Is there anything more sickening than couples in love, couples in love?

Are you listening? I once had it all of course I had to throw it all away
Are you listening? No one’s ever going to tell me I don’t learn from my mistakes
Are you listening? When I tell you this is never this is never going to change
Are you listening? I can never be the one you want no matter what you say

Be the sunlight in your darker days
All the comfort when you’re numb
Is there anything more sickening than couples in love, couples in love?

Please don’t call me later on tonight
I’ve got my tv, I’ve got my wine
I’ll raise a glass to Romeo and Juliet and couples in love...
Track Name: The King of Indecision
The King of Indecision

Must be a complicated life, what with the children and the girlfriend and the wife
Not to mention all the casual affairs. Must be so tough, is it so tough?
The remedy is clear it’s just the consequences that bring on the fear of confrontation
Time trickles away and it’s so tough yes it’s so tough

So leave until tomorrow what you could have done today, and tomorrow you can always do the same
Little rituals and covering of trails, to save a spotless rep from messy stains

He don’t know who to choose he’s the king of indecision
He’ll take good care of you till it all starts crumbling around him, leave him where you found him, listen to your heart for a change

A romantic meal for one, heartfelt apologies he left after the tone, washed down with champagne and a growing sense of doubt that it’s all wrong, that it’s undone

But leave until tomorrow what you could have done today, and tomorrow you can always try to
Cling to the wreckage as the ship is going down ever hopeful that one day he’s going to change

He don’t know who to choose he’s the king of indecision
He’ll take good care of you till it all starts crumbling around him, leave him where you found him, listen to your heart for a change
Track Name: Behind Crossed Fingers
Behind Crossed Fingers

One day I will escape from this cold world
Get out of here far from all of these fools cos everyone’s stupid
And I don’t like them.
Somewhere, free from the cliques and corruption
Free from the politics and the lies that they spew from
Behind crossed fingers
Queen bees, sidekicks and parasite flunkies
Wearing their colours with pride. When they’re mad, I’ll get even
Because you’ll be standing by my side
Sweet jesus, open the blinds let the sun in
See how they run

One day, I will escape from this cold world
Wave my goodbyes
And promise that I’ll write
And walk away with you forever
Cross my fingers and hope that that day is coming soon
Until then please answer your phone
I’m here alone.
