Track Name: d.i.y.
this is a song about glue
it's not a metaphor
for how i'm stuck to you
my adhesive heart
collects bits of fluff and hair and origami card

some come in sticks
and some come in pots
and some get you fucking high

this is a song about screws
it's not what i want to do to you
i've cross threaded our fingers
in my head until they've turned blue

some are really long
and some you can barely see
but they're all involved in d.i.y.

this is a song about someone who
i said i'd never give the satisfaction to
cus when i write about stuff
it has a tendency to fuck up

but some will make you laugh
and some will make you come
and some will make you fucking cry
and some will look at you
some will really look at you
and you'll wonder why
you ever wanted to die
if this is life
Track Name: be strange(!)
i don't get the way I get
when I'm drunk and crying in my bed
i think it's time to open up the blinds
i don't get the way the world
rushes round and round I'm gonna hurl
if somebody won't get me off this ride

this song could list every name
of starving countries, hurricanes
atomic bombs, murder, suicide

i could just sit down and see
all the evil pass by me
it's all fucked
and there's no afterlife

but without the dark
you'd never see the light

so if you're scared
be scared!
be honest it'll make somebody's day
stop thinking that it isn't okay

if you're strange
BE STRANGE!
everybody's fucked up and afraid
Track Name: generic 3 chord whatever about whoever didn't call you back (fucking moron)
one day you called me clever
then you decided that we'd never
see each other again
memories are piling on me like they're shit
at the risk of sounding like taylor swift
i preferred your best friend (or flatmate or whatever)

you think I'm clever? you think i'm clever? you think i'm clever? you think i'm clever?

i want to be a fucking moron
so maybe then i won't remember that you're gone
i'll think that you've moved to boston and we're still together you just don't call that often

i want to be a fucking moron
i want to be a fucking moron
a fucking moron

i always wondered why you assumed that i was bright
maybe you were just trying to see the light
that was absent from your head
i'll untie my laces and trip all the time
i'll say any words to make sure that they... banana
i'll even read the sun (uk newspaper, top quality)

you think I'm clever? you think i'm clever? you think i'm clever? you think i'm clever?
fuck you (oh no wait i wish i never did)

i want to be a fucking moron
so maybe then i won't remember that you're gone
i'll think that you've moved to boston and that we're still together you just don't call that often

i want to be a fucking moron
i want to be a fucking moron
a fucking moron

you think i'm clever? you think i'm clever?
you think i'm clever.
Track Name: when i put my arm around you my <3 was beating so fast i felt like the mouse i dissected 2 wks ago
[sometimes it's really hard just to get out of bed.
you're waiting for some kind of sign, anything to tell you today will be okay
but all you hear is the sound of your tiny heart

desperately trying to define yourself with art
because the normal way is just too difficult
being the person you think everyone will love
being the person you hate the most
eating nothing but dry cereal because you're too fucking scared to leave the house]

look at me
see right through me

open
your eyes
it's time to find the feeling
for yourself
it's always
been there
can't you feel your skin peeling
from the sun

i remember you
you were here when i was small
you kept me safe from all the world we were wrapped in a blanket of innocence
i think you're back
i think i see you
you're at my bedroom door
Track Name: SMS (song for missing someone)
hey
what you up to
my friend
what you up to
click send
hey i'm just washing my hair
what about you
do you even care
do you even care

i don't wana look at this lcd screen
no more
i just wana sit alone with you on your
bedroom floor

ah ah ah ah etc

i'm just writing a song
right down your street
i'm just writing a song

Track Name: yell oh pages
walking into the library
don't know what else to do
i see books
i see cDs
i see ways to escape from me

in the yellow pages
yell oh pages

you are a phone directory
i can get in touch myself
i can get in touch with my friends
i can get in touch with my mum

give me my breakfast
three courses of words with my coffee
give me my cheerios
(ooooo)
tasty tasty tasty tasty

i want to lick these full stops and question marks
the punctuation around your face
give me a bite of iambic pentameter
nothings ever out of place

in the yellow pages
yell-oh pages

theres no reason to leave my room
all these pages come to bloom
i'll sit here till it's dark
with my torch and your birthmark
i'll sit here till it's dark
with my torch and your birthmark

with my torch and your birthmark
Track Name: i c u
[story time]

i remember we played scrabble all night
the first time i started feeling alright
the world started making more sense well not really
i could just start seeing more clearly
it wasn't even because i'd got new glasses
the glasses i have i've had for ages
they're all smudged and one of the screws is loose
...

and somebody kissed me in a lift
(it felt like a fucking twilight fanfic)
two days later i passed out in the same spot
alanis morrisette would probably call that ironic?
Track Name: any questions? (mariana trench)
i want to know
where everything goes
out of my head when i see
a picture of you

how do you
solve a rubik's cube
you thought i did it once but i couldn't make the last side blue

i want to see the world
but there are worlds in my bedroom
deeper than that famous hole in the sea

how do I
become sound of mind
and where do we all go
when we die
