Track Name: Postcode Wars (2011 version)
I’m moving to the Heart of Darkness
I’m sure that I’m gonna fit right in
Cos North London – it never suited me
And don’t ever let ‘em tell you that it did
My memory’s selective – there are holes and doubts
But I’ve got it all mapped out
SE5 won’t know what’s hit it now, so...

(Don’t fight...)
Let’s sort it all out in the bedroom

Forget your postcode wars
And find something that’s worth fighting for now
Hey, if you think that I’m a mess
Well, you should see the other guy
He’s three storeys high and rising
With all the smoke from SE17
Do you wanna join my team?
Your friends won’t know what hit ‘em now, so...

(Don’t fight...)
Let’s sort it all out in the bedroom
No guns, no bombs, no protest songs!

I kind of knew that this would happen

I kind of sensed that this would happen
That we’d forget
The lost respect
And we’d regret
That tawdry affair in Lorrimore Square
Don’t you love when a plan starts coming together?
Dish out what you get
My urban marionette
Well, I had a plan and now it’s coming together
It’s taken some time
But we’re doing fine
So it’s all back to mine
I-I-I’ll race you
Track Name: Alpha Male (2011 version)
All the men in my life
Not one of them can understand what I mean
All these men in my life
And none of them will ever see what I see

Take me away from here
Take me away from here
Blow me away right here
I wanna get high

All the men in my life
I’ve worked through every one in the depths of my mind
And all these men in my life
Such pretty men
Come up a little short every time

Take me away from here...

Every man that I’ve had
I’ve pushed or been pushed in a matter of days
And every one of my band
I’ve slept with them all in slightly different ways

Take me away from here…

Cos I’ve seen us in buddy movies
I’m the sidekick who gets left behind
But you always look so sad about it
As I drown slash burn slash stay in orbit
Circling for eternity as you kiss your beautiful bride

All the men in my life
I love you even though we know it’s doomed to fail
All the men in my life
I heart you with emoticons and indoor fireworks
The cheque is in the mail

Blow me away right here
All I wanna do is get high
Just for a while…
Track Name: Summer Of Hate
Your eagle eye spots the unpleasant truth
Your radar works the wrong way round
Your hear the boot stamp
Another door slam
Transmission over – change the programme
Before it changes you

Cos I...
I don’t want this summer of hate
I don’t want a summer of love
I’d just like to see you smile
Maybe I’ll regain a little warmth

It’s getting hairy on the street outside
You lock your laptop in a drawer
Well, was it worth it
When you deserted?
Clutching the phone – no credit on it
But there are perks to living on the top floor

Cos I...
I don’t want this summer of hate
I don’t want a summer of love
I’d just like to see you smile
Then maybe I’ll regain a little warmth

Oh, I just need a little warmth...
Track Name: If I Leave You Sitting In The Dark (Just Let Me Know)
I see the trees are green, but I’m over it
I’m going colour-blind by choice
The greyscale beckoning

But if I leave you sitting in the dark
Just let me know
If I leave you sitting in the dark
Just let me know

And I won’t go

Beware the mask of independence
We’re flying solo, blinded over again
Your eyes see fiction

But if I leave you sitting in the dark
Just let me know
If I leave you sitting in the dark
Just let me know
Let me know
Let me know

I’ll turn the power on
