That bitch’ll make you itch An itch you can’t resist You’ll scratch until you’re Red red raw and probably bleeding It happens everyday The itch won’t go away And it don’t matter How much moisturiser you’re using

When we are kids And aged about four We learn a skill We didn’t know before When we are kids And aged about four We learn to lie And then lie some more This is a time That’s post make-believe We practice this skill For the rest of our lives And if you get good Then you’ll surely find That you’ll want to lie Again and again

The New Gay 04:00
Beards, don’t mean you macho Muscles, don’t make no Rambo Check shirts, it’s just a costume And them chaps, don’t make no man though Now I’m not sayin’ I’m homophobic But I just can’t see the benefit Of doing your darndest to fit the clique Looking the same as all the other shits You call this shit community You reckon this shit’s a sanctuary All it does is breed insecurity Stifles confidence and personality We’re the new gay So much better than the old gay And we say There’s gotta be a better way To express yourself Without resorting to a cliché So put away, put away Put away your Kylie and Beyoncé

You’re never gonna show that you might need help You’re always gonna take advantage of us You’re never ever gonna thank us for nout You’re always gonna turn your nose up at us Where are your manners Did no, no one teach you Why can’t you show some Just show some respect And if you think it goes unnoticed You’re wrong, you’re wrong, you’re wrong, you’re wrong, you’re wrong, you’re wrong ‘Cos we won’t take no more of your bullshit We’re strong, we’re strong, we’re strong, we’re strong, we’re strong, we’re strong

Salaam 03:48
It only takes a moment of your day To stop and think about how you behaved With all the people that you met today And wonder if you made their day today Salaam, Salaam, Salaam, Salaam

Costcutter 03:47
Contents past their sell-buy date Rotting fruit and veg on plates Overpriced and breaking regs Well Ok, Ok, We will buy you produce anyway Drunkards getting in your face Chavs are disrespecting faith, your faith Slappers lacking any grace They say, They say They say “Fuck you, fuck you” to your face I notice that behind the till Bottles of Modafinil And I can see the sleeping pills How long, How long, How long have you been living life like this

It’s kickin’ off in Tottenham, Tottenham, Tottenham What is you doin’, rudeboi Why is you smahin’ shit up Is that really the best way To get your message across What is you doin’, rudeboi Why you be pickin’ shit up Is you so fuckin skanky So You be wreckin’ your hood

Heat Haze 02:06
It’s a dry summer’s day Leaves are green, skies are blue Not a care in our minds As we drive through the fields We’ll load up the car, yes we’ll load up the car We’ll pack our bags and get outta here Put your foot to the floor, Put your foot to the floor Let’s get out this town, yeah get out this town There’s miles and miles of road ahead For us to explore, yeah for us to explore Let’s throw away the map, the map Let’s go wherever this road take us It’s a dry summer’s day Leaves are green, skies are blue Not a care in our minds As we drive through the fields There’s a tree in a field That I spy from the road And it stands way up high Strong and bold, full of life

When I feel down, And life feels empty, I fight my frown, And this helps plenty

Unlikely 04:01
If you’ve never seen a world outside your phone If you’ve never stepped outside your neighbourhood If you crave the comfort of what you call home, then You’re unlikely to know where I’m coming from

about

I wrote these tracks in 2011 and been performing most of them since. They've been sitting around with a label awaiting release which has never happened, so I'm just doing it myself. Cut out the middle man, innit.
