Track Name: Funny Turns
I’m not gonna be your friend
I don’t want your compliments
I want something real
I’m kept up half the night
I’m not in control of my life
I’m grappling for the wheel

Maybe I was moving too fast for you?
I’m sorry but I can’t see you
It’s too late
My mind’s been erased by you
I’m sorry but I can’t see you

“Hypercondriactic” curse
My headaches are cancer or worse
Anti Lock Brake and reel
I’m not going to be on time
I’m already late for my life
I’m gagging for appeal

Maybe I was moving too fast for you?
I’m sorry but I can’t see you
It’s too late
My mind’s been erased by you
I’m sorry but I can’t see you

Too late for ideas
I’m out of luck and friends I could count on when things get tough
I’m lost, can’t right my wrongs
I know I’ve been difficult to love and hard to get along with
I’m out of touch and basically fucked
Just need to be held or loved by anyone

Maybe I was moving too fast for you?
I’m sorry but I can’t see you
It’s too late
My mind’s been erased by you
I’m sorry but I can’t see you
Track Name: Television Era
Another opinion
I’m treading a fine line between epiphanies and the worst example of mankind
I want to be better than this, maybe the best
If only to make myself more attractive to the opposite sex
Sit on the bed
So you can just shout at me
Pull out the books on the shelf
Pretend that you wrote them yourself
Pick up the highlights
Pick up the slack
Too many exclamation marks could never hold you back

Mama! Mama!
It’s the end of the programme and if you’re not bored we can start over again
Mama! Mama!
It’s the end of the television era

I’m hiding again
Don’t tell me I have to go
So terrified of all the girls just cutting off my clothes
It’s not from the inside
It’s not going in
I’m into stranger things than this don’t ask me where I’ve been
Right now it's all that I am looking for
Think of the children
Think of the young
There’s plenty of Simpsons left to watch all the way from season one

Mama! Mama!
It’s the end of the programme and if you’re not bored we can start over again
Mama! Mama!
It’s the end of the television era
Mama! Mama!
Can you send me a postcard from the furthest away you can possibly get?
Mama! Mama!
It’s the end of the television era

And it’s everywhere
And I’m trying to fake it
I got plenty of hair
Tell me I’m gonna make it
And it’s everywhere
It’s in all of the papers
If they even exist anymore

Mama! Mama!
It’s the end of the programme and if you’re not bored we can start over again
Mama! Mama!
It’s the end of the television era
Mama! Mama!
Can you send me a postcard from the furthest away you can possibly get?
Mama! Mama!
It’s the end of the television era

And it’s everywhere
And I’m trying to fake it
I got plenty of hair
Tell me I’m gonna make it
And it’s everywhere
It’s in all of the papers
If they even exist anymore
Track Name: God Damn
God damn
It’s been so long
I should not have called you
Should’ve left you alone
But my mind had been made up
I’m not gonna stay here at the back of the bus
Oh Foss, won’t you tell me I’m enough?

It’s like I’m lacking sense
Way up in my head
It’s like I’m lacking sense
Maybe I’m dead?

God damn
It’s been so long
I should not have called you
Should’ve left you alone
But my mind had been made up
I’m not gonna stay here at the back of the bus
Oh Foss, won’t you tell me I’m enough?

It’s like you’re lacking somebody else
It’s not that complicated
You shouldn’t be sedated
You’re blind
You’re lacking only yourself
It’s not that complicated
You shouldn’t be sedated

God damn
It’s been so long
I should not have called you
Should’ve left you alone
But my mind had been made up
I’m not gonna stay here at the back of the bus
Oh Foss, won’t you tell me I’m enough?
Track Name: Little Brother
Hey little brother
When are you going back?
I can feel the shame like your new dad
Hey little brother
Where are you going now?
Getting back in your car won’t change how

You are so sweet
But I cannot compete
Little brother
Oh I’ve been a fool
But lately you’ve been so so cruel
Don’t be so
This is a real low
Don’t be so cruel

Hey little brother
I hear it’s going round
Twenty four hour bug or your breakdown?
Hey little brother
Don’t get so down
It’s a problem I’m sure Jen will figure out

You are so sweet
But I cannot compete
Little brother
Oh I’ve been a fool
But lately you’ve been so so cruel
Don’t be so
This is a real low
‘cause we are but one and I feel we are coming undone
Where’s our mother?
Oh I want a life
But you won’t let me go
Don’t be so
This is a real low
Don’t be so damn cruel
Track Name: Yes Men
I don’t really want to face the facts
But I’m wasting my life on this track
I don’t really want to know your name
I just want to be employed again

Lunacy, Lunacy
I have to tell you
Honestly, honestly
Do you feel pregnant?
Cannot breath, cannot breath
What have you done to me?

I don’t really want to face the facts
But I’m wasting my life on this track
I don’t really want to know your name
I just want to be employed again
What can I offer your company?
Undiagnosed A.D.D
This man’s a measure of anxiety
And I tell you
I don’t work for free
Don’t work for free
Won’t work for free
Don’t work for free

But in the end
I’m gonna be okay!
It’s not the case for many my age
But we all die the same…
Track Name: I'm Dead
I’m dead in my bed
Come to life some, but not all of the time
Get ahead
Read a book
Easy now

Watch as he strikes venom right into her heart
And then she falls in love with smallest of parts
Beta is monetarily in the red
Embody it
No choice
I’m already him

I can never take her where she wants
She has to put up with my adolescence
I could be more productive
Premium courses in being cost effective
I can never be who she wants
Drive my car to a bridge
Throw myself off
At least the diesel’s cheaper at Asda

Feel faint chest pain
Let him die over and over tonight
Then again
Multiply?
It’s easy how

Let’s have a kid
Get high on the meaning of life
"Don’t call him Ben”
Why not?
“It might not be right!”
Then what is wrong?
“It’s best to not look ahead”
But I’m a man
I’m full of primal defence

I can never take her where she wants
She has to put up with my adolescence
I could be more productive
Premium courses in being cost effective
I can never be who she wants
Drive my car to a bridge
Throw myself off
At least the diesel’s cheaper at Asda

Finally I’m faced with hard reality
I’m drenched
Need you to cover me
I’m dead and sick of empathy
I’m fragile to the core of this
I’m plagued by the dichotomy
I’m vexed by no ones honesty
You’re dead and taste like semolina
You’re wild and fuelled by tragedy
I’m skilled within transparency
I’m lost without any context
You’re dead!
There goes my innocence
Your concepts are not feminist
Be brave, become your heroin
“I’m gay! Like everyone these days…”
You’re cursed to be a 'Norman Door’ I can’t open up

I can never take her where she wants
She has to put up with my adolescence
I could be more productive
Premium courses in being cost effective
I can never be who she wants
Drive my car to a bridge
Throw myself off
Track Name: Shame
I’ve never felt more ashamed of myself than right now
I’ve never felt more ashamed of myself than right now
I know it’s really not up to me
But I have to have my say
I am not ready to be this happy

Summon the courage
I’ve got a thing to tell you about but it’s not going to be easy
Oh I’ve done something wrong
But you’re going to need to remain calm

I’ve never felt more ashamed of myself than right now
I’ve never felt more ashamed of myself than right now
I could be the bell of your ball
Someone to dance with for a while
But I never said I could do it all

Summon the courage
I’ve got a thing to tell you about but it’s not going to be easy
Oh I’ve done something wrong
But you’re going to need to remain calm
Summon the courage
Ed you’ve got to tell her
But it’s not going to be easy
"Oh Jen I can’t control myself! ‘cause I’ve been with somebody else"

And it’s really not up to me
It’s blunt and impersonal
“Does your therapy really help?
If you’re out of option maybe…why not try being happy?”

I know you’re not one for words
But what I needed
You misheard
I’m the dog who shit on the floor

Summon the courage
I’ve got a thing to tell you about but it’s not going to be easy
Oh I’ve done something wrong
But you’re going to need to remain calm
Summon the courage
Ed you’ve got to tell her
But it’s not going to be easy
"Oh Jen I can’t control myself! ‘cause I’ve been with somebody else"
Track Name: A Good Thing
I’ve been waiting a long time for somebody like you
Strong, independent, good at Scrabble too
Now you’re leaving me
Don’t know what to do
‘cause I lost myself before I was twenty two

I’ve been waiting all my life to realise
The one thing
I need
I had
Oh Em, isn’t that right?

I’ve been waiting a long time for somebody like you
Strong, independent, good at Scrabble too
Now you’re leaving me
Don’t know what to do
‘cause I lost myself before I was twenty two

I was taking all the right advice at the time
But my heart don’t know right from wrong when you’re on my mind

I’ve been waiting a long time for somebody like you
Strong, independent, good at Scrabble too
Now you’re leaving me
Don’t know what to do
‘cause I lost myself before I was twenty two

And now we’re meeting here like I thought we would
But I will break it off before you could
Self-saboteur
Oh I need you bear
I’m a mess and I don’t care

I’ve been waiting a long time for somebody like you
Strong, independent, good at Scrabble too
Now you’re leaving me
Don’t know what to do
‘cause I lost myself before I was twenty two
Track Name: True Romantic
It’s like I’m living with a true romantic
He got it wrong again
Oh man he's so annoying
Cuts right to her feelings

It’s like he does it to himself
Right when she needs him
It’s like he does it to himself
Walls up the reason

Well lately I’ve known, and maybe I should go get some bereavement
I know why
I am my weakness
I know why

It’s like I’m living with a true romantic
He’s burnt dinner again
Can’t look away as he tries to avoid her
His mother sure misses him

It’s like he does it to himself
Right when she needs him
It’s like he does it to himself
Walls up the reason

Well lately I’ve known, and maybe I should go get some bereavement
I know why
I am my weakness
I know why

It’s like he does it to himself
Right when she needs him
It’s like he does it to himself
Walls up the reason
It’s like he like he’s governed by his health
Right when you’re bleeding
It’s like he’s always by himself
Oh what a weird thing
Why doesn’t he just ask for help?
I’d like to teach him
I see him struggle by himself
He’s such a weakling
It’s like he does it for the pain
Right in the feeling
It’s like he does it to himself
What a strange thing
Track Name: Weirdo Years
It’s ancient and predictable
Too smart to be happy and too dumb to be a success
Mum’s done her best and raised you wrong
Backbone like a stick and a head filled with Jungian slips
Music’s a terrible conduit for serious themes like dying alone with no peace
What an ironic end to thee I think
Cry while I try and sleep
Wish I had drowned in my dreams

Am I chasing that one thing I’m not allowed?
You might love me but you sure don’t like me right now
What I am striving for is more or less truth in myself

Gonna get your goat eventually
How can I be a man this week?
Weirdo years far from complete
I’m grappling for reality
It’s "art through adversity”
Dad’s been far too kind to me
God damn, I’m bored by my own speech!
A privileged and passive life
Some say I’m barely alive
What does it mean to be a man this week?
Couldn’t tell you even if I knew
The truth’s lost on piss ants like you

Am I chasing that one thing I’m not allowed?
You might love me but you sure don’t like me right now
What I am striving for is more or less truth in myself
