This night the sky is extra dark The death of England Take my place in the belly of the shark The death of England Goodbye, knock it out the park The death of England

Born Stupid 02:33
Well I could've been a doctor or a lawyer Playing golf with my rich friends at the club But I had to be born stupid Why did I have to be Born stupid Without no sense at all Why did I have to be born stupid? Why did I have to be born stupid? With all the strife and peril in this world? I'd like to help make things better But instead I had to be Born stupid Without no sense at all Why did I have to be born stupid?
4.
Are you an inmate under duress? Despair incumbent inside my chest The Essex idiot I've searched for all along One I feel sad for, who didn't belong One that's a part of me Alive in my arteries In my history

Paternoster 00:49
Paternoster I try not to feel an imposter at your behest We all face these kicks to the chest but life goes on We just have to learn when to step off and on
6.
Dance 01:25
Tender actions without words Read the language of the birds Read the language of our bodies Be ourselves Never copies We can laugh We can weep We can dance We can sleep Fan the flames of desire Pumping air to feed the fire Love is having Desire is wanting Eros dancing Invite me in
7.
You got it in a way that no one else could Lyrically uncomfortable, not beating around the bush and you said my act was weirdly kind of sexy (Even though I pulled the rip cord and clearly no one wants to fuck me any more) Charles Aznavour Leonard Cohen and Serge Gainsbourg The Chantels, Sparklehorse, It's Time To Be Clear Lullaby For Scout In 10 Years The reference points were ideal "Make it direct and real" you said Right now I should be gossiping and laughing and working with my friend I would've been so proud of that one Now the chance has gone
8.
What I thought I was vacated me Accepting it all placated me Now it's up to me to talk myself of this ledge Elsewhere they don't ignore such a sign In the old town they shut down the mine Heaven knows that is fine by you Love is the answer So don't ask the question An act of true faith Without malicious intention Can you see this view? Can you see what they've done to you?
9.
What's wrong with you is wrong all the way through you Hot gases drawing in and black scoria seeping out
10.
Some things you wave away will crush you inside And some things hurt you and help the others thrive And some things that don't kill you Make you regret still being alive But it's too late to change What do you do? Wouldn't you have loved to be confident too? Wouldn't you have loved to be confident too?
