Track Name: Straight To Video
He’s Allerton-esque and you’re out of your comfort zone this train’s being held at the platform I’m prone orange noise on the board beneath remnant of Soho I’m a beacon of light and they suck all the air from the room he crumples up you would freak if you knew but out of love I’ll cover up gently...

Just hold it together, boy
Hold it together, boy
Try to hold it together, boy
Can you hold it together, boy?

Vermillion skies reflect earth brown eyes flash fear take him back to your flat to hold hands until the bruise appears I could handle a piece of that but we were nowhere near embracing the past so long ago that parental advice what did they know how to pinpoint the instant that showed the horror before me...

Just hold it together, boy
Hold it together, boy
Try to hold it together, boy
Can you hold it together, boy?

Hold on because a pin-prick could burst this imaginary of mine

Your fantasies may vary but
This whole thing’s getting way too much
And time’s running out
Our time’s running out
The cuts were deep, I know
We spilled our lives on rock’n’roll
And time’s running out
Our time’s running out
We’re tumbling together
Like Hellbent & Leather
Surrounded by ghosts in the edit suite
Don’t freeze frame, hell no
Your life goes straight to video
And time’s running out
Our time’s running out

Your fantasies may vary but
This whole thing’s getting way too much
And time’s running out
Our time’s running out
The cuts were deep, I know
We spilled our lives on rock’n’roll
And time’s running out
Our time’s running out
We’re crashing together
Scars gouged out of leather
Surrounded by stars of the blogosphere
Don’t freeze frame, hell no
Your life goes straight to video
Time’s running out
Hold on cos we’ve got ten hits to nail this
Before you press rewind
Track Name: Marlborough Road
The streetlights on standby
Watchful and hissing and I…
Imagine that they’ll flicker out around me
No light in the hallway
Left on the latch – I always…
Knew this was gonna be a dark place
The darkest yet, but…
I wanna stay right here forever
Please let us stay right there forever

But we came apart on Marlborough Road
Repeatedly
I fell apart on Marlborough Road
Plus one makes three now
You don’t know what you lack
Till it’s present… correct

Keep smiling, no frowning
Your looks could shoot the aeroplane down in…
One second’s lapse of concentration
But this smile is distorting
Mix Glen’s – 11 in the morning
I think perhaps I’ve reached the stage where
The wind will change and…
I will be stuck like this forever
We could’ve been stuck like that forever

But we came apart on Marlborough Road
Repeatedly
I fell apart on Marlborough Road

A simple operation goes awry
The King is Dead – I saw it in his eyes
When all the money comes to nothing
Baby, it’s a sin
After the fire comes the flood
The ceiling’s caving in

So let it burn
Let slip the dogs
Bring hail and fog
The ground will open up
Let it burn
Let all the dead inside my head
Rise up and roam the earth
Cos it’s time…
