Track Name: LONDON POLLEN
THERE WAS SOMETHING IN THE AIR
BUT NOW THERE’S NOT
YOU WERE IN MY HEAD
BUT NOW YOU’RE NOT

I THINK THEY’VE HAD ENOUGH
IT’S THE KINDEST THING
WE’VE GOT TO PULL THE PLUG
THEY WON’T FEEL A THING
A TIRED IRON LUNG
THAT’S NO WAY TO LIVE
WE’VE GOT TO PULL THE PLUG
OR IT COULD GO ON

I REMEMBER YOU AT RANDOM
AND IN REVERSE
CHEWING ON THE AIR
AT 90 MILES AN HOUR

I THINK THEY’VE HAD ENOUGH
IT’S THE KINDEST THING
WE’VE GOT TO PULL THE PLUG
THEY WON’T FEEL A THING
A TIRED IRON LUNG
THAT’S NO WAY TO LIVE
WE’VE GOT TO PULL THE PLUG
OR IT COULD GO ON
Track Name: SONG FOR MARLA & LUCAS
I’M THE SHITTY FOOTPRINT
AT YOUR PARTY
YEAH YEAH YEAH
I’M THE FADED BLOODSTAIN
ON YOUR MATTRESS
THAT YOU PRETEND YOU CAN’T SEE

SOMEBODY UP THERE LIKES YOU
BUT I’M ALABAMA CHROME
AND THIS IS MY MIDDLE FINGER
IT’S BEST LEFT UNSAID BUT I SAY IT ANYWAY

ALL YOU CITY KIDS
YOU NEVER LISTEN
BUT YOU’RE OK
COS THROWING MONEY AT THE PROBLEM
ALWAYS MAKES IT GO AWAY

SOMEBODY UP THERE LIKES YOU
BUT I’M ALABAMA CHROME
AND THIS IS MY MIDDLE FINGER
IT’S BEST LEFT UNSAID BUT I SAY IT ANYWAY

ASK THE WALLS AND LET THEM SPEAK
WHO’S YOUR MATE?
CLIMB THE WALLS, AND THEN WE’LL SEE
COS I CALL FAKE
Track Name: SOFT COIN
NOW I AM BENT ALL OUT OF SHAPE
AND SHE’S A THOUSAND MILES AWAY
GIVE ME EVERYTHING YOU’VE GOT
THEN I’LL SMILE, AND I’LL NOD

THERE IS NOTHING I CAN SHOW FOR IT BUT THIS
THERE IS NOTHING I CAN SHOW FOR IT BUT THIS

TURN IT ON AND OFF AGAIN
NOTHING HAPPENS, THEN IT ENDS
WE ARE SO WELL REHEARSED
AND THE HOUSE IS BREATHING

THERE IS NOTHING I CAN SHOW FOR IT BUT THIS
THERE IS NOTHING I CAN SHOW FOR IT BUT THIS
I DON’T KNOW IF MY FRIENDS KNOW THEY’RE EVERYTHING
IT IS BITTERSWEET, SO BITTERSWEET, IT’S PERFECT
Track Name: RRW
AEROPLANE FUEL IN A PETROL ENGINE
BOLTED THEN IT BURST INTO FLAMES
SAVING ALL THE BELTS OF AMMUNITION
FALLEN FROM ENEMY PLANES
THEY MADE YOU BURY THE HUMAN HAND
THAT THEY DISCOVERED IN YOUR HIDING PLACE
YOU NEVER STOPPED COLLECTING YOUR TREASURES, DID YOU?
JUST DON’T WANNA LET IT GO TO WASTE

LATELY THIS IS ALWAYS
WHERE MY HEAD GOES
IN DOWNTIME
DOWNTIME.

GETTING OUT ALIVE OF THESE SITUATIONS
MADE YOU WHO YOU ARE TODAY
FIRE THAT ARROW INTO THE SKY
AND LIVE WITH WHERE IT LANDS, ALWAYS
YOUR LIFE LIKED TO FALL FROM THE SKY
AND NOW IT’S GONE AND FALLEN AWAY
AT LEAST YOU MET MY GIRL AND YOU SEEMED TO LIKE HER
WE’RE GONNA GET MARRIED SOMEDAY

BUT I WANTED TO ASK YOU
TO BE MY BE BEST MAN
BUT I RAN OUT OF TIME,
BUT I RAN OUT OF TIME
OUT OF TIME.
NO TIME

I STILL FEEL YOU WALKING AROUND
