She’s infused with white but I met her in black
I’ve got blurred vision, she let her senses attack

I live for the thump, she longs for the jump
Take it all risk it now

I live for the sound, she longs for the ground
Take it all risk it now

I live for the crash, she longs for the hash
Take it all risk it now

She’s infused with white but I met her in black
I’ve got blurred vision, she let her senses attack

I live for the thump, she longs for the jump
Take it all risk it now

I live for the sound, she longs for the ground
Take it all risk it now

I live for the crash, she longs for the hash
Take it all risk it now

She’s infused with white but I met her in black
I’ve got blurred vision, she let her senses attack

I live for the thump, she longs for the jump
Take it all risk it now

I live for the sound, she longs for the ground
Take it all risk it now

I live for the crash, she longs for the hash
Take it all risk it now

She’s infused with white but I met her in black
I’ve got blurred vision, she let her senses attack

Here’s a piece for you, it’s yours to keep
Hold it tight when you’re falling asleep

You get what you want, it’s in what you attract
Try more light, don’t stick to the black

She’s infused with white but I met her in black
I’ve got blurred vision, she let her senses attack

Here’s a piece for you, it’s yours to keep
Hold it tight when you’re falling asleep

You get what you want, it’s in what you attract
Try more light, don’t stick to the black

She’s infused with white but I met her in black
I’ve got blurred vision, she let her senses attack

Infused With White

She’s got dreams and wishes, she got them for free
Play it on a loop till it sinks in

She’s got a strut when she strolls, she got that for free
Play it on a loop till it sinks in

She’s gunna set the world a blaze with those flames
Play it on a loop till it sinks in

She’s gunna leave a burnt trail with those flames
Play it on a loop till it sinks in

That smile will widen your eyes
That laugh will brighten your sky’s

That idea will make you second guess
That initial reluctance will lead to a yes

She’s got songs and melodies, she got them for free
Play it on a loop till it sinks in

She’s got a shimmy and a shake, she got that for free
Play it on loop till it sinks in

She’s gunna leave her mark on the wide world
Play it on loop till it sinks in

She’s gunna say her piece to the wide world
Play it on loop till it sinks in

That smile will widen your eyes
That laugh will brighten your sky’s

That idea will make you second guess
That initial reluctance will lead to a yes

She’s got hope and memories, she got them for free
Play it on loop till it sinks in

She’s got a poem and a verse, she got that for free
Play it on loop till it sinks in

She’s gunna make it with love for you all to see
Play it on loop till it sinks in

She’s gunna hand it to the sinners for you all to see
Play it on loop till it sinks in

She’ll fill the whole in your soul with silver and gold
Make you feel young when your body’s getting old

She’ll do it for free, it won’t cost you a thing
She wants to make you smile wants to hear you sing

You can pay her in love with a smile and kiss
She’ll be back soon
She has to shine the stars and sprinkle the moon

Play It On A Loop

Pavements are full, lights shining bright
Whispers of drugs and Dave’s talking shite

He’s got you in the corner
Don’t say I didn’t warn ya
The stories are old
He’s starting to bore ya

Take a look around the room, what do you see
Same old faces same old scene
Putting by their troubles with a chemical remedy

Are you rock n roll as fxxx or a next day quitter
Does it make your eyes wide, does your mouth taste bitter

The weekend was here and now it’s all over, wrecked from an urge for 1920’s cola
You’re in work tomorrow don’t be late, for fxxx sake it’s a Thursday mate

Toilets are packed, bars proper full
Whispers of drugs and Jane’s on the pull

She’s got you in the corner
Don’t say I didn’t warn ya
Them pickups are old
She’s starting to fool ya

Take a look around the room, what do you see
Same old faces same old scene
Putting by their troubles with a chemical remedy

Are you rock n roll as fxxx or a next day quitter
Does it make your eyes wide, does your mouth taste bitter

The weekend was here and now it’s all over, wrecked from an urge for 1920’s cola
You’re in work tomorrow don’t be late, for fxxx sake it’s a Thursday mate

It’s always the same it’s how we get by
You wanna get blind you wanna quick buzz a ten minute high

The bangs passed down, weakened in time
It’s used to be a pint now it comes with a line

Take a look around the room, what do you see
Same old faces same old scene
Putting by their troubles with a chemical remedy

Are you rock n roll as fxxx or a next day quitter
Does it make your eyes wide, does your mouth taste bitter

The weekend was here and now it’s all over, wrecked from an urge for 1920’s cola
You’re in work tomorrow don’t be late, for fxxx sake it’s a Thursday mate

It’s always the same it’s how we get by
You wanna get blind you wanna buzz, just fly

Aunty Dee is gunna cool it, she’ll bend the flames, fool it.

Why should you heal, why should you feel, it’s the chemicals don’t be done.
There’s a print placed upon your head, it’s not your thumb.

It’s a scam from the man with the pound in his palms

It’s a scam from the man with the doe in his fist

Why should you heal, why should you feel, it’s the chemicals don’t be done.
There’s a print placed upon your head, it’s not your thumb.

Aunty Dee

Tall as a scraper bald with tattoos, He’ll smash the port and cider, Knock back the brandy all the booze

Heart and strength of a brother in blood
Pushed through the wind, pulled out the water
Dragged through the rain, wiped off the mud

There when I wanted it, there when I needed it

Everyone’s got one, I’ve got you, Dragging me always from the dark and blue

The tattooed few, rare as you like
Come together when it’s time to fight
Leaving you strong, ready for life

Hench as an Ox fit with tattoos, He’ll smash a shake and a salad, Sip on a corona some of the booze

Heart and strength of a brother in blood
Pushed through the wind, pulled out the water
Dragged through the rain, wiped off the mud

There when I wanted it, there when I needed it

Everyone’s got one, I’ve got you, Dragging me always from the dark and blue

The tattooed few, rare as you like
Come together when it’s time to fight
Leaving you strong, ready for life

Bent as a note Dad with tattoos, On the water or a bud, Dig into the grub, avoid the booze

Heart strength brother blood, wind water rain mud

There when I wanted it, there when I needed it

Everyone’s got one, I’ve got you, Dragging me always from the dark and blue

The tattooed few, rare as you like
Come together when it’s time to fight
Leaving you strong, ready for life

Comical and chat, pure with tattoos, On the Whisky and Jaeger. Mix it with coke, bring the booze

Heart strength brother blood, wind water rain mud

There when I wanted it, there when I needed it

Everyone’s got one, I’ve got you, Dragging me always from the dark and blue

The tattooed few, rare as you like
Come together when it’s time to fight
Leaving you strong, ready for life

Boy to a man winged his tattoos, Straight on lemon and tequila, Skip the kebab, give him booze

Heart strength brother blood, wind water rain mud

There when I wanted it, there when I needed it

Everyone’s got one, I’ve got you, Dragging me always from the dark and blue

The tattooed few, rare as you like
Come together when it’s time to fight
Leaving you strong, ready for life

More than me, more than I’ll ever be

I’ll pay for them, the memories
I’ll pay for them, the injuries

More than me more than I’ll ever be

The Tattooed Few

That killer jaw line, enough to send a god blind
Like rolling clouds of thunder, they'll fill your heart with wonder

She’s got an early morning smile, makes the earth stop a while
She’s got an early morning glow, makes the world spin slow
She’s got an early morning breeze, makes the doubter in me, believe

I heard a wise man say, he’d freeze a moment make it stay
I’m not wise I would not say, stay in the moment make it stay
Press play a million memories built in a day

That little shy flick, enough to make a heart kick
Like summer buds in winter, they'll fill your soul with glitter

She’s got an early morning smile, makes the earth stop a while
She’s got an early morning glow, makes the world spin slow
She’s got an early morning breeze, makes the doubter in me, believe

I heard a wise man say, he’d freeze a moment make it stay
I’m not wise I would not say, stay in the moment make it stay
Press play a million memories built in a day

That subtle lit sigh, enough to make a bird fly
Like laughing loves of romance, that fill your head with the first dance

She’s got an early morning smile, makes the earth stop a while
She’s got an early morning glow, makes the world spin slow
She’s got an early morning breeze, makes the doubter in me, believe

I heard a wise man say he’d freeze a moment make it stay
I’m not wise I would not say, stay in the moment make it stay
Press play a million memories built in a day

That hazel brown tilt, enough to make a star jilt
Like dreaming days of old age, they'll fill your eyes with the last stage

She’s got an early morning smile, makes the earth stop a while
She’s got an early morning glow, makes the world spin slow
She’s got an early morning breeze, makes the doubter in me, believe

I heard a wise man say he’d freeze a moment make it stay
I’m not wise I would not say, stay in the moment make it stay
Press play a million memories built in a day

Robert, I’m off on a vacation, will you tell her to meet me, be at the station.
Robert, I’m off on a vacation, will you tell her to meet me, be at the station.
Robert, I’m off on a vacation, will you tell her to meet me, be at the station.

I heard a wise man say, he’d freeze a moment make it stay
I’m not wise I would not say, stay in the moment make it stay
Press play a million memories built in a day

She’s got an early morning smile, makes the earth stop a while
She’s got an early morning glow, makes the world spin slow
She’s got an early morning breeze, makes the doubter in me, believe

Clucking Fool

She’s the king of this castle, support for the man backing a rascal
Ten thousand to one, line them up the pauper’s son

Rich seas making the sick seas empty the poor seas

It’s her house of cards, theirs left battered broke in shards
They can carry watch them run, line them up the peasant’s son

Rich seas making the sick seas empty the poor seas

Safe is her seat, lovers and partners left to cheat
Foot put wrong supplies the pun, line them up the only son

Rich seas making the sick seas empty the poor seas

She has no cause got no care, the tables one less remove that chair
Eyes closed on the run, line them up another’s son

Rich seas making the thick seas empty the poor seas

How much did it cost was it a quick deal when they – bought ya
How much did it cost was it a back hand when they – caught ya

Rich seas making the thick seas empty the poor seas

What did you get, what sweetened the deal when they – bought ya
What did you get, what summoned the debt when they – caught ya

Rich seas making the thick seas empty the poor seas

She’s the king of this castle, support for the man backing a rascal
Ten thousand to one, line them up the pauper’s son

Rich seas making the sick seas empty the poor seas

It’s her house of cards, theirs left battered broke in shards
They can carry watch them run, line them up the peasant’s son

Rich seas making the sick seas empty the poor seas

Safe is her seat, lovers and partners left to cheat
Foot put wrong supplies the pun, line them up the only son

Rich seas making the sick seas empty the poor seas

She has no cause got no care, the tables one less remove that chair
Eyes closed on the run, line them up another’s son

Rich seas making the thick seas empty the poor seas

How much did it cost was it a quick deal when they – bought ya
How much did it cost was it a back hand when they – caught ya

Rich seas making the thick seas empty the poor seas

What did you get, what sweetened the deal when they – bought ya
What did you get, what summoned the debt when they – caught ya
