Tin Box 02:56
Tin Box I threw you a smile on the A429 I tilted my mirror so I could see your face better The hard shoulder is whizzing past Car trees and pylons all gone with a glance In this tin box we’re stuck for hours and hours and hours There’s nothing like a tin box to make you talk Stuck in this tin box will make ou talk There’s nothing like a tin box to make you talk Follow the signs on the motorway Theres plenty of time to think of what you’ll say Cause im not stopping Not even for a loo break I’m not stopping We’ll drive into the day breaks I’m not stopping You better make some sense soon I’m not stopping Till this is fixed Don’t throw me a smirk on the A432 Don’t turn your head to the window I don’t know what I’ll do The hard shoulder is whizzing past Car trees and pylons all gone with a glance In this tin box we’re stuck for hours and hours and hours There’s nothing like a tin box to make you talk Stuck in this tin box will make ou talk There’s nothing like a tin box to make you talk Follow the signs on the motorway Theres plenty of time to think of what you’ll say Cause im not stopping Not even for a loo break I’m not stopping We’ll drive into the day breaks I’m not stopping You better make some sense soon I’m not stopping Till this is fixed Leatherette seats stick to our skin Tobacco and sand in the carpet Pine fresh scent will that make you give in The child lock’s still on your door Cause im not stopping Not even for a loo break I’m not stopping We’ll drive into the day breaks I’m not stopping You better make some sense soon I’m not stopping Till this is fixed

She stares at me from the book shelf Eyes a startling white How did your picture get so much nearer since lunch Oh misty charcoal outline won't you share some wise words Make everything clearer before I get nearer to 25 Cause I can't decide No I can't decide Oh how did you know that you wanted to Become a master of what you do Your legacy holds one string to your bow and you're the best But I don't have time to specialise Don't seem to have the room to focus Legs always bouncing Feet always itching to move on Cause I can't sit still No I can't sit still Maybe we're all in the know Counting our string to our bow bow, bow A generation of everything Ad nothing at the same time We're all ambidextrous multi perplexed we're trying hard But I can't decide No I can't decide Maybe we're all in the know Counting our string to our bow bow, bow Go, Go, Go, Go, Go.

He wants to see me in the middle of the night Sends me a text saying honey be there And all the waiting’s just a figment of my mind He loves like the wind I’m out on a roof you’ve been juggling hearts again Just struggled my way through the winter, now I have to start again Well I fold the cards are in your hands The tarmac’s getting soft underneath my soles I am done Compassion You do not have Touches my cheek as if I’m made out of china Breathes down my neck like a parachute Gaze in his eyes cries something demonic He loves like a black and white film I’m out on a roof you’ve been juggling hearts again Just struggled my way through the winter, now I have to start again Well I fold the cards are in your hands The tarmac’s getting soft underneath my soles I am done Compassion x 3 You do not have

Monsoon Rain 03:17
Monsoon rain Saving pennies for the monsoon rain Saving pennies till I’m solvent again I don’t want to go to London town I don’t want to go to London town To clip my heels in the city sweat To get poked by umbrella by the suits yet Hold on hold on There’s time to venture out the money box There’s still time to outsmart the fox I’ll keep my pennies huddled in a jar My hard earned pound are sleeping safely at home I’ll keep my interest firmly settled on myself Far away from bankers they can make their own mess And I don’t want to go to London town I don’t want to go to London town To suckle on the American buck To challenge the dress code I don’t give a fuck Hold on hold on There’s time to venture out the money box There’s still time to outsmart the fox Saving pennies for the monsoon rain Saving pennies till I’m solvent again I’ll keep my aspirations cellotaped in a file My every desire hauled up in a pile I’ll keep my dreams so contained and small Waiting for the crunch to break so I can grow tall I don’t want to go to London town I don’t want to go to London town To clip my heels in the city sweat To get poked by umbrella by the suits yet I don’t want to go to London town I don’t want to go to London town To suckle on the American buck To challenge the dress code I don’t give a fuck Hold on hold on For the Monsoon Rain

Belly down he falls, A gritty ground stings down His elbow is bleeding just a graze it needs cleaning But he won't look What an unfortunate day Misfortune will have its way Even the clocks are against you They're tick tick tick ticking away His coffee turned a funny shade of grey He threw it down the sink and was on his way But his caffeine is lacking and his sugar levels dropping His thoughts are miles away What an unfortunate day Misfortune will have its way Even the clocks are against you They're tick tick tick ticking away We'll blow that man down We'll blow that man down We'll blow that man down We'll blow that man down Making sure his eyes are open He fumbles for his oyster card But his ticket won't let him through and he's tired of feeling so damn blue so he jumps What an unfortunate day Misfortune will have its way Even the clocks are against you They're tick tick tick ticking away x 2 We'll blow that man down We'll blow that man down We'll blow that man down We'll blow that man down
